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!

In this week's boralogue, John tackles two very important topics. First up, there is a battle of worldviews happening in Western civilization because society has drifted away from its founding ideals. Reform, then, must occur, but the fight against entrenched swamp critters will be long and it will be tough. Second topic: this weekend marks the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church, and John relates stories of several persecuted Christians to pray for.

What is the difference between impeachment inquiries in the Watergate era and those occurring now? John O'Connor (www.joclaw.com), Attorney and Owner of O'Connor and Associates, joins us to discuss the contrast between 1973 and 2019 regarding impeachment and how the current media are purposefully lying to further a narrative. He also covers how intelligence agencies and Hillary Clinton's campaign spied on candidate Trump in 2016.

There's a knock at the Church's door and it's socialism that is busting in. Steven Grant (www.godsdestiny.com), Senior Pastor of Destiny Christian Center in Colorado, examines the invading secular worldview that is slowly but definitely usurping the Gospel in the Church, and asserts that church leaders need to be prepared to stand in the faith before it's too late.

A western Canadian professor was recently fired for going against the climate change narrative and claiming – through documented research – that polar bears are thriving. Dr. Bonner Cohen (www.cfact.org), Senior Policy Analyst with the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), joins us to show how climate alarmists are stifling the speech of those who don't tow the green line.

John's quote of the week:
"In reform, we have two problems: getting back to our foundations, and fighting off those swamp critters that not only don't want to see us go back to our foundations, but also want to see the whole thing destroyed. We have to keep bearing witness to the truth because truth is our ally in this entire worldview battle."

In this week's Extras segment, Producer Steve takes over and plays an excerpt from an early October episode of his podcast, War on Stupid. Steve enumerates an exhaustive and entertaining laundry list of controversies against President Trump from Inauguration Day to the Ukraine phone call. Steve covers why this keeps happening and why, after all the so-called wrongdoings, impeachment is happening now.
