In literature, narratives are often fiction.  In both the mainstream media and politics, narratives exhibit the same fictitious nature.  In this week's boralogue, John gives several examples of how the media and politicos have failed to tell the truth lately, including with the gun rights rally in Virginia, with anthropogenic global warming, and with Attorney General William Barr.  It turns out you can make this stuff up – and it shows us their true intentions.

 

Iran is a hot topic in the news but one aspect not covered by the media is how women have been treated there.  Manda Zand Ervin (www.allianceofiranianwomen.org), Founder and President of the Alliance of Iranian Women, joins us to recount how Iranian women, who were being oppressed by the mullahs, established a secret underground network in order to survive.  Much of this information can be found in her new book, The Ladies' Secret Society of Iran.

 

It's time for a Middle East geopolitical update so we welcome an expert on the subject, Seth Frantzman (www.sethfrantzman.com), Middle East Affairs Analyst at the Jerusalem Post.  He examines a deal between Turkey and Russia to partition Libya, an oil pipeline from the region to Eastern Europe, and the interactions between Turkey, Syria, and the Kurds.

 

John and Producer Steve spend a few moments dissecting an opinion piece from the Harvard Law Review that advocates for end-running the Constitution in an attempt to add amendments that would not only give permanent legislative power to liberals but would also ultimately endanger the Republic itself.

 

John finishes out the show this week with a news story roundup, relating stories from around the world.  Included are the impending Brexit, a disastrous new economic plan in Spain, trouble in China regarding the Catholic Church, and several examples of Christian persecution.

 

John’s quote of the week:    

"If the people cannot operate on the basis of their conscience and their convicted values and beliefs, what will act as a judge upon the government when the government itself goes corrupt?  And governments, believe me, will go corrupt."
