A recent article in the American Mind on the upcoming leftist coup has set the political world on fire. The author of that article, Michael Anton (www.americanmind.org), Lecturer in Politics at Hillsdale University, is with us to discuss his thoughts. The Left will fight for this election no matter the outcome or the damage to the system and will blame whatever happens on President Trump. If they achieve power they believe they may never relinquish it.

Next up, John and Producer Steve sit down to try and make sense of the tactical lying coming from the media. Truth is being distorted and the recent article in The Atlantic trouncing the President for being disrespectful to our military is but one example.

John goes on to examine the choice we have this fall: freedom or socialism. He gives a brief analysis of why socialism has never worked in the history of the world.

Finally, in this week's boralogue, John looks at the Middle East peace process and analyzes why it hasn't worked up to this point. After years of Palestinian leadership refusing to negotiate, the new strategy is to apprehend reality and upend the status quo. This has brought about alliances no one could predict, but once the old paradigm assumptions were removed, it became obvious those alliances were actually needed.

We remember the 9/11 victims and their families who suffered 19 years ago when reality became all too real in New York, DC, Pennsylvania, and across America. Our prayers are with them.

We all know the answer to this question: has socialism ever worked in the history of it being tried? Author and historian Bill Federer (www.americanminute.com) joins us for part 1 of a two-part series on the ravages of socialism. He takes us on a whirlwind tour of historical references in literature of perfect, utopic places, but even in those examples it never seems to turn out well. The Pilgrims put this into practice when they arrived here in 1620, but it too failed, forcing them to abandon it in favor of private property.

Bill discusses the transition in society from a covenant based on God to contracts where God was replaced by the State. The French Revolutionists wanted a society without God but it failed. Many church leaders today claim that the Bible advocates for socialism, but Bill gives several examples refuting that.
