With immigration, the Christian heart wants to let everyone in to the country, be kind, and minister to their needs. But the reality can be quite different. So what's the best approach? Joining us today to hash things out is Doug Stuart (libertarianchristians.org), CEO of the Libertarian Christian Institute. He and John look at how open the border should be weighing compassion against the possibility of criminals entering. They also discuss the wisdom of integrating into a culture once a person moves into a country. Is it fair to ask? Is it needed? Interesting discussion on today's show.
Happy Independence weekend everyone! It's important to learn the truthful history of our country, but the prevailing leftist narrative today is that because some of our Founding Fathers were slave owners, any good that they accomplished is forgotten. First up on this holiday show is Bill Federer (americanminute.com), President of AmeriSearch, Inc. He gives an accurate account of the history of slavery in America: who held slaves, who initiated the abolitionist movement, and where the two political parties have stood on the issue throughout the years. The narrative is that the U.S. is irredeemable because of our history with slavery. What is often ignored is that we also got rid of it.
Much of the immigration debate today is centered around our southern border, but with the current administration's proposed policies, should the focus be elsewhere? We welcome back former U.S. immigration Senior Special Agent Michael Cutler (michaelcutler.net) to the program. He asserts that because thousands of people are entering our country and then are bused away from the border, the U.S. needs to beef up interior enforcement. A majority of the time, there are no interviews and no investigations done, which means random U.S. cities are seeing a sudden spike of new un-vetted residents.
Finally this week, we look at the intriguing possibility of a constitutional crisis should these election audits prove President Trump actually won the election. Rounding out the show is retired engineer John Green, who examines the Supreme Court's role in election integrity prior to and after November 3. Because they refused to hear a case that could have cleared up some questions right after the election, SCOTUS could soon be in the unenviable position of determining if President Biden is really the President. A constitutional crisis may be looming in the coming months.
A lot of focus on immigration security surrounds the border with Mexico, but with the current administration's proposed policies, should the focus be elsewhere? Back with us after a long hiatus is former U.S. immigration Senior Special Agent Michael Cutler (michaelcutler.net). Many people are being let through the border now, few with any interview or investigation, and are then bused off to parts of the country's interior. Mr. Cutler looks at the need to beef up interior enforcement. He also explains how these new policies could lead to even more people coming across the border through family petitions. But with no investigation, fraud and even worse crimes could increase.
If you don't live in the United Kingdom, you may not be well-versed on the Brexit situation, which has once again popped up in the news. In this week's boralogue, John gives a backgrounder on Brexit, from its sketchy origins to the recent inability of Prime Minister May to engineer a deal to current Prime Minister Johnson's troubles this past week. There are long rolling agendas afoot that ultimately thwart the will of the people and cater to the globalists.
Social justice warriors have begun changing the meaning of certain words in an attempt to change culture. Philip Carl Salzman (www.mindingthecampus.org), Professor Emeritus of Anthropology at McGill University, joins us to discuss how SJWs are in fact re-engineering language. It lasts from early education into universities to the point where people have begun self-censoring just to be left alone.
Finally we welcome back to the program author and Middle East expert Raymond Ibrahim (www.raymondibrahim.com) who examines a number of topics including Coptic Christian persecution in Egypt, Islamic terrorists at our southern border, the different perceptions of moderate and radical Muslims, and the political correctness that keeps us from getting at the truth.
John's quote of the week:
"If left to its own devices, the social justice argument and everything as it is framed would collapse from its own logical inconsistency and its deviation from language. The only thing that keeps it going is brute force."
In this week's Extras segment, we play John's latest appearance on Stand Up For The Truth on Q90FM out of Green Bay, Wisconsin. There are a lot of distractions keeping us from focusing on God - money, social media, politics, entertainment. It's difficult, but we are to love the Lord with all our hearts and minds. John takes a look at several of society's distractions.
