With all the news surrounding Afghanistan, little is being said about Iran, but a new report suggests the mullahcracy may be weeks away from nuclear weapons. Back with us, is our Iran expert Ken Timmerman (iran.org), President and CEO of the Foundation for Democracy in Iran. There are geopolitical consequences following our pullout from Afghanistan, including the Iran nuclear program advancements and the policies from the current U.S. administration that isn't standing in their way. He covers the dysfunction inside Biden's military as well as within the Iranian government.
A military should be focused on defense of a country and being better than the enemy. But our military has begun to focus on social engineering issues instead. First up this week is Retired Air Force Colonel Mike Angley, who served 25 years in the Office of Special Investigations for the Air Force. He looks at new woke policies in the military, including snitch phone lines and diversity training. Many of these policies would lower morale, discipline, and unit cohesion. In other words, defense and being better than our enemies have been overtaken by political correctness.
And when it comes to government policies, our current administration is reverting back to Obama-era programs, despite their previous failures. Back with us today is Ken Timmerman (kentimmerman.com), CEO of the Foundation for Democracy in Iran. He examines the Biden Middle East policy, especially where it concerns Iran, and how Iran has not had to concede anything in a newly resurrected Iran Deal. He also looks at the future of the Abraham Accords now that the Trump administration is out of power.
We may never know exactly where the Covid virus came from, but it's looking more like it could have originated in a lab in China. Rounding out the show this week is Dr. Roger Klein (rogerdklein.com), Chief Medical Officer at the cancer genomic company Omniseq. There will be investigations into the virus's origins, but will anything come of it? Will we learn anything from the past year? Dr. Klein discusses supply chain deficiencies, the need to rely solely on science and not politics, and whether lockdowns were the right move.

Back with us today is Ken Timmerman (kentimmerman.com), CEO of the Foundation for Democracy in Iran. He explores why, if it always ends in failure, the current administration would bother with the Obama-era Middle East plan. Apparently Iran has not had to concede anything in this newly resurrected Iran Deal. He also looks at the future of the Abraham Accords now that the Trump administration is out of power.
There are two countries in the world right now vying to be the most powerful – the United States and the People's Republic of China.

He also takes a look at the geopolitics of the energy market.
Next up this week, we welcome Thomas Cargill (www.independent.org), Senior Fellow at the Independent Institute who answers the question of why far left progressives constantly contradict themselves on important issues.

Economics is one leg of the geopolitical stool. In this week's boralogue, John looks at financial indicators and raises a red flag watch on our economy. David McAlvany and Kevin Orrick from McAlvany Weekly Commentary discuss how we are overdue for a recession, and though the economy continues to hum along, indicators are pointing to a likely recession in 2020. How will it affect the election? We'll have to wait and see.

John and Producer Steve round out the show covering the Deep State and the latest impeachment effort. Reform is needed and government should be pared down. The President has control of foreign policy, but those in Congress and the Deep State who disagree with that policy are attempting to oust the President via impeachment.
John's quote of the week:
"Economically, are we healthy or are we not? Yes, the economy is buzzing along, but if you look at the underlying fundamentals, there are serious structural problems with the global financial system. It, like our government, is going to have to be reformed at some point."
In this week's Extras segment, we play John's most recent appearance on KYMS, a local north Idaho radio station, and his monthly martyred church update. He and host Lee Lancaster discuss other topics, including freedom of speech, who gets to determine what hate speech is, and the tendency to compromise parts of the Constitution. They also look at important tidbits such as where on the globe Burkina Faso is located!
