We may never know exactly where the Covid virus came from, but it's looking more and more like it could have originated in a lab in China. Joining us today is Dr. Roger Klein (rogerdklein.com), Chief Medical Officer at the cancer genomic company Omniseq. There will be investigations into the origins, but will anything come of it? Will we learn anything from this experience? Dr. Klein examines supply chain deficiencies, the need to rely solely on science and not politics, and whether lockdowns were the right move.
Reality eventually becomes real for everyone and when it does, it usually hurts. On today's podcast, John looks at several news stories including how the Jewish community in America is experiencing violence following the recent Israel-Gaza war and they're beginning to wake up to the reality that the Left, the side most of them have been on for awhile, really don't like them. Also, countries in Europe are facing the reality of cultural violence following the massive Islamic migration of a few years ago. Even the Vatican is encountering the truth after releasing statements on abortion. The mainstream media is to a certain extent facing reality, though they constantly weave narratives to cover it up. Reality always becomes real. How you handle it will determine how much pain you'll be in when it happens.
It has been a very busy news week, so John will tackle two stories in this week's boralogue. First up is the Coronavirus, which originated in the central China city of Wuhan. John looks at the facts and how it's possible that this could be a virus weaponization situation that got out of control. He then pivots to the new peace plan, recounting a few details and whether or not the Palestinians will eventually come to the table.
How does socialism, which fails every time it is implemented, become so popular with media and with students in the West? Answer: lack of education about it. Joshua Philipp (www.theepochtimes.com), Senior Editor at The Epoch Times newspaper, joins us to give a history of Marxism and what it does to a society and how communism tries to supplant religion by becoming its own so-called morality system.
John takes a moment, as Brexit has finally come, to give a backgrounder on the European Union. He plays Nigel Farage's farewell speech at the EU Parliament this week, highlighting the group's lust for power, their ability to thwart the will of the people by ignoring referenda, and the rise of pro-sovereignty and populist movements in the West.
Finally, we welcome author and retired businessman Jim Hollingsworth (www.co2coalition.org) who discusses his new climate manual that clearly explains several issues surrounding the climate change controversy. Get the manual in kindle or paperback on Amazon here.
John's quote of the week:
"If religion, meaning the religion of the people, does not act as the value system of government, then the government will create its own value system and force it down on the people. That's what you're seeing in China today and we're teeter-tottering with it here in this country."
On this week's extra segment, we dive into the topic of socialism with two boralogues from years past. First up is an extended boralogue from June 2008 where John outlines the three steps of socialism. That is followed up by a boralogue from September 2009 covering how socialism has affected our education and permeates both sides of the aisle in politics.
