Mike LeMay

Freedom is not free. It is a fluke of history. And it must be maintained at all costs. In this week's boralogue, John shows how our Constitution protects our freedoms by restraining government. The Supreme Court just handed down a ruling against civil asset forfeiture, thankfully upholding freedom and protecting citizens from unjust search and seizure. Where power and money goes, trouble grows.

The worldview battle in the West is beginning to affect the Church. Joining us to discuss this are Pastor Steven Grant (www.godsdestiny.com), Senior Pastor of Destiny Christian Center in Colorado, Pastor Brandon Holthaus (www.rockharborchurch.net), Senior Pastor of Rock Harbor Church in California, and Mike LeMay, retired General Manager of Q90FM in Wisconsin and former host of Stand Up For The Truth.

Topics on the roundtable agenda this week: preparing the church for the worldview battle to come, unbiblical messages infiltrating the church as a whole as well as the pulpit specifically, and the need for a group of pastors to pray and encourage one another in these times of trouble in the Church.

Healthcare and insurance are touchy subjects lately and one of the most important topics in the presidential race. Andrew Langer (www.instituteforliberty.org), President of the Institute for Liberty, joins us to discuss the impossibility of price controls and free, free, free stuff for everyone. He also offers solutions to the problem of high prices.

John finishes off the program this week with several stories, including inflation in Venezuela, the history of Marxism in Zimbabwe, and media falsehoods surrounding Israeli settlements in the West Bank.

John's quote of the week:
"The whole idea of rights and freedom is to act as a restriction on government. It's not anti-government. Our founders recognized that we needed government. But they also recognized that unrestrained power and the mischief that is innate in mankind will also produce tyranny. So the power had to be restrained and divided up so that it could be controlled and accountable."

There is no Extras segment for this week due to the Thanksgiving holiday. We will return next week. Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving!

Bad is good, good is bad, dark is light, light is dark, bitter is sweet, and sweet is bitter. In this week's extended boralogue, John highlights speeches from Attorney General Bill Barr, City Journal Editor Myron Magnet, and Queen Elizabeth II of England. From these speeches, we learn that the world is being turned upside down in pursuit of a narrative. Listen to AG Barr's full speech: 

Morals and ethics are now considered to be radical positions. Precepts in the Constitution are ignored in favor of liberal definitions. If an outcome of an election doesn't go their way, progressive elites will obstruct, even though had the election gone the other way, they would have spoken out against obstruction. There is no consistency when you don't have a solid foundation to stand on.

Truth is at times being doubted in the church and that is leading to a corruption of the faith. We welcome back Mike LeMay (www.standupforthetruth.com), General Manager of Q90FM Radio in Wisconsin to examine how an upside down society is adversely affecting the church. He also recognizes that Christian persecution is coming, but we need to fight it every step of the way.

Why would wealthy corporations who have benefited under capitalism advocate for socialism? Author and speaker Michael Rectenwald (www.michaelrectenwald.com) is back with us to answer that question and discuss his new book, The Google Archipelago. He goes on to explain why he stepped away from the liberal mindset after his colleagues turned on him.

John's quote of the week:
"The social justice that's now being pushed into the Bible churches is simply a repackaging of Marxist ideas covered over with something that looks evangelical. A lot of the material sounds good and church leaders fall for it. They fall for it because they don't understand the worldview changes that are underway."

In this week's Extras segment, we give John a break and play a speech (that he attended) given in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho this week by Constitutional Law Attorney, Trump 2020 Legal Analyst and Conservative Commentator on Fox News, Jenna Ellis (@JennaEllisEsq). She covers a variety of topics including Constitutional originality and impeachment.
