Facebook went down last week as a so-called whistleblower testified before Congress about the social media giant. That and a lot of other topics for today's show. Dr. Russ White (rule11.tech), expert on IT infrastructure and architecture, is back with us today for another spirited conversation. Was the whistleblower testimony a false flag? What do the powers that be want to ultimately do with censorship? John and Russ look at the Facebook outage as well as the security of Bitcoin. They also discuss deep learning programs and algorithms that make decisions in social media.
Eliminating cash and transitioning to an all-digital currency may make some people nervous, especially if the digital currency is backed by the government. Leading off the show this week is silver expert David Morgan (themorganreport.com), author of the Morgan Report. He and John look at the possibility that the U.S. government could shift to digital currency, giving them control over all transactions. Bitcoin, the current leader in digital money, will either face off against the establishment or be co-opted by it. David also predicts what could happen with inflation and our massive debt.
We then move in-house with a conversation between John and Producer Steve. They examine the media's lack of journalism in parroting the administration's wavering virus messaging as well as using conflicting scientific papers in the virus and vaccine battle. They also discuss the tendency for the truth to win out in the end, how mandates violate freedom, and even some unprofessional undercover activity on the part of federal law enforcement.
Finally, we welcome to the show Mike Berry (firstliberty.org), General Counsel for First Liberty Institute and member of the U.S. Marine Corps. It is getting harder for members of the armed forces to honor the military oath. It says you are to support and defend the Constitution, but it also says you are to obey the orders of the President and superior officers. With woke leadership demonizing conservative military members for their beliefs, eventually our enemies will defeat us without firing a shot.
The idea of eliminating cash and going to an all-digital currency may make some people nervous – especially if the digital currency is backed by the government – but what does it really mean? Joining us today is David Morgan (themorganreport.com), silver expert and author of the Morgan Report. He and John discuss the possibility that government, should they take the reins of a digital currency, would be able to track every transaction you make. They also look at how Bitcoin works, how the 'powers that be' would have to interfere if Bitcoin became too powerful, and what could happen with inflation and our massive debt.
Sometimes you have to choose the lesser of two evils. In this week's boralogue, John looks at the devil's choice: stay isolated and probably kill the economy or ramp up the economy and most likely extend the virus. There needs to be a threading of the needle and our leaders should put aside the urge to behave like bureaucrats and act prudently during this crisis. And it's up to us to pray for wisdom for those leaders.
The plight of persecuted Christians very rarely gets air time in worldwide media, especially so now that we're dealing with Covid-19. Stephen Rasche (www.chaldeanchurcherbil.org), Vice Chancellor at the Catholic University in Erbil, Iraq, joins us to give a clear understanding of how Christians are faring in Iraq and the Middle East.
John and Carol join forces to analyze today's new economic and political paradigm. Things are changing where it concerns politicos' behavior in government, the validity of buying gold and silver, and how headlines and perception fuel the market's engine more than profit statements.
Inevitably, for good or bad, politics seeps into a crisis. Kelly Sadler (www.a1apac.org), Director of Policy and Communications for President Trump's re-election campaign, examines the relief bill, attacks on the President, and helping out businesses during this rough time.
We close out the show this week with disaster and preparedness expert Dr. Paul Williams (www.whenallplansfail.com), who stresses the importance of being calm in an emergency, eating healthy to stave off sickness, and the power of prayer in every situation.
John's quote of the week:
"You're watching happen now what would happen if we implemented all of the designs that we've heard proposed in terms of taxes and carbon credits and the reduction of industry in order to stop man-made global warming. There's no way the economy worldwide can even think about this for the next five or ten years as it climbs out of this mess."
On this week's extra segment, we play a triple feature of noted doctor and preparedness expert Paul Williams. From 2010 after flooding in Nashville, from 2012 following Hurricane Sandy, and from 2014 in the middle of the Ebola outbreak, Dr. Williams gives good advice on how to prepare for emergencies.
