Shall Not Have Died in Vain

150027 07/04/2015 Shall Not Have Died in Vain

As we celebrate our great nation’s 239th birthday, it is important to remember that this country was founded not on the principle tolerance, but of freedom. The many problems we face to today with racial issues or same sex marriage could be solved rather simply: we’ll each have the freedom to do what we want and we’ll respect each other’s right to do it. The solution, however, does not appear to be that simple. Instead, “tolerance” prevails, allowing one group to shut down debate and demand everyone march in lockstep. With freedoms deteriorating, we would ask the founders and soldiers who worked so hard to preserve those freedoms: was it worth it?

Like many of you, we are taking a break this week to celebrate the Independence Day holiday. Today’s program features a presentation John gave on Memorial Day this year at Candlelight Christian Fellowship in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. He asks whether those brave men and women died in vain to protect our freedoms. We are exchanging one set of rights for another set of rights, and the rights we were given under the Constitution are being ignored. In fact, they are slowly eroding.

How did this happen? John recalls the history of the educational system in America and its gradual decline due to Marxism. He points out the contradictions posed by the media elite in revising our country’s history. The question of whether they died in vain can only be answer by us. Will we fight against this infiltration? Will we, with one loud voice, declare, “I will not sit down! I will not shut up!”

Section 6 is on hiatus for the holiday week, but rest assured, John will be back next week to comment on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world.

Contradict

150026 06/27/2015 Contradict

The elimination of racism was supposed to have begun five decades ago, but it seems stronger than ever today. Why is that? In the boralogue this week, John looks at contradictions put forth from the power elites and asks the question, “What happens when we’re subjected to false narratives?” Those that used to preach “don’t push your views on other people” are doing nothing but that now. Freedom of speech for everyone now pertains to politically correct speech only. Big government used to be abhorrent, but now it’s all the rage. Amidst all these contradictions, the ability to debate an issue that the politically correct declare as settled is stymied at every turn. As a result, our freedoms are gradually deteriorating: freedoms that were established long before our country was founded.

On June 15, we celebrated the 800th anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta at Runnymede by King John of England. To contrast the many journalists and commentators who have recently been downplaying the importance of the Great Charter, we welcome back to the program Avi Davis (www.americanfreedomalliance.org), President of the American Freedom Alliance. He shows how the Magna Carta influenced the writings of the Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution and established the freedoms that people have enjoyed throughout the Anglosphere.

Deprived of their freedom and often their lives, Christians around the world are being persecuted at an alarming rate. Johnnie Moore (www.defyingisis.com), Vice President for Faith Content at Lightworkers Media, shares his experiences in the Middle East and identifies ISIS as the most serious threat to Christians in Iraq in thousands of years. In the midst of sparse news coverage on persecution, he advocates praying for the victims and encouraging local and national leaders to combat the problem.

Internet access affects virtually every aspect of personal and professional life, so maintaining internet openness and security is imperative. Craig Parshall (www.aclj.org), Special Counsel to the American Center for Law and Justice, examines the Obama administration’s plan to cede control of the Internet to a private, non-profit group called ICANN. This group operates in secret, independent of U.S. veto power, has the authority to shut down the internet should a catastrophe arise, and has been meeting with leaders from anti free-speech countries.

Lessons From History

150025 06/20/2015 Lessons From History

As we recharge for the summer here at Steel on Steel, we begin embracing interesting thematic issues. John skips the boralogue this week and welcomes David Hathaway (www.charityendureth.com), former DEA Agent-in-Charge in Nogales, Arizona, who recalls President Nixon’s creation of the DEA through executive order. He explains the differences between the DEA’s mission and that of the FBI and CIA and surmises that America’s results from the war on drugs may be worse than the original problem.

The most important thing about history is learning not to repeat it. Retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Ralph Peters (us.macmillan.com/author/ralphpeters) discusses his new book: Valley of the Shadow and how American military leadership can learn from their Civil War counterparts. He implores that we blinded by political correctness and learn from past failed socialist policies.

150024 06/13/2015 Devil in the Details

Just before the 2008 presidential election, candidate Barack Obama said, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” In this week’s boralogue, John examines predictions from 40 years ago that projected an end-run around the sovereignty of nations. Today, this is being accomplished through a series of trade agreements. The process occurs in gradual increments rather than a full frontal assault so that governments can be changed without the knowledge and consent of the governed. Obama’s transformation plan for America continues unabated.

We remember Nancy Pelosi famously saying of Obamacare, “We have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it.” History, it seems, is repeating itself with the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and Transatlantic Trade & Investment Partnership (TTIP) agreements. Bill Jasper (www.thenewamerican.com), Senior Editor at The New American, discusses his reasons to oppose Obamatrade, including the secrecy surrounding it, fast track authority dangers, and its radical transformation of global geopolitics.

There hasn’t been a significant warming in global temperatures for 18 years, yet climate change activists trudge ahead with their “hottest year on record” narrative. Retired President of the Science & Environmental Policy Project Fred Singer (www.sepp.com) confirms this narrative as false by analyzing actual scientific findings.

Stories of unarmed black men gunned down by law enforcement officers and the subsequent protests have dominated news media for several months. But what happens when neighborhood police patrols decline as a result? Heather MacDonald (www.manhattan-institute.org), a Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, examines a growing empowerment of inner city criminals known as the Ferguson Effect.

This week, John takes an extensive look at the secretive Bilderberg Group, which is meeting this weekend.

Overreaching a Dark Chasm

150023 06/06/2015 Overreaching a Dark Chasm

We’ll kick off the show in John’s boralogue by comparing constitutional rights with the new category of “human rights,” and explaining why this has placed the Constitution on life support. Constitutional rights are granted as being inherent or God-given, whereas human rights require one person to sacrifice constitutional rights and be forced to provide something for another person for free.

What happens when faulty science teams up with religion? Cornell University Adjunct Professor Matt Briggs (www.wmbriggs.com) explores the Vatican’s curious involvement in anthropogenic global warming along with Pope Francis’s upcoming papal encyclical on environmentalism, and how continued pressure to believe erroneous studies is damaging the scientific process and perhaps the credibility of religion.

The Obama administration has recently claimed dominion over America’s waterways, changing the current “navigable waterways” definition to “all waterways.” The interstate commerce clause of the Constitution was never intended to be tortured to this level. Mark Baird (www.soj51.net), President of northern California water rights group Scott Valley Protect Our Water, explains regulatory mismanagement in California and advocates standing up against government overreach. He relates this to the campaign to create what would be the nation’s 51st state, the State of Jefferson, from several of California’s northernmost counties.

We’re beginning a thread to examine socialist policies in South America and their relevance today to U.S. security. Russell Dallen (www.laht.com), President and Editor of the Latin American Herald Times, relates important observations of Venezuela’s poverty and economic ruin under Chavez and Maduro, and touches on Argentina’s questionable financial practices over the past decade.

This week, John takes an extensive look at the differences and similarities between the Patriot Act and the Freedom Act.

Hardball Questions

150022 05/30/2015 Hardball Questions

We have always urged you to pray for Christians who are being persecuted for their faith around the world. John relates in his boralogue a few examples of Christian leaders or congregants who are either blindsided by violence or face death for their choice of faith. In Pakistan, a mob looted homes and attempted to burn a church after a mentally challenged Christian man was alleged to have burned a copy of the Quran. An Ethiopian man was ordered to kill two Christian pastors or his children would die. From Sudan to Nigeria to India and beyond, persecution of Christians is on the rise. They need our prayers.

If someone cheats a little, do you call them on it? Or do you continue turning a blind eye as the cheating persists? Iran is cheating and the U.S. is doing nothing about it. Shoshana Bryen (www.jewishpolicycenter.org), Senior Director at the Jewish Policy Center, reveals that Iran is end running our nuclear agreement by attempting to enrich uranium without the use of centrifuges. She also examines the Vatican’s recognition of a Palestinian State, which is less favorable to the Palestinians than many think and is probably more of an effort to defend the rights of Christians in the Middle East, or Palestine at least.

When it comes to the U.S. embassy attack in Benghazi in 2012, the hardball questions still remain unanswered. Arnold Ahlert (www.frontpagemag.com), op-ed writer for Front Page Magazine, explores the connection between Benghazi and Syria, cover ups by the Obama administration, and how Hilary Clinton’s many scandals may affect her chances in next year’s presidential election.

If you attempt to bring Christians, Jews, and Muslims together in a spirit of love and tolerance, is it really possible when one group’s core belief involves hatred toward the other two? We welcome back to the program retired LAPD officer and instructor Dr. Stephen Kirby (www.islamseries.org) to examine the Omaha Tri-Faith Initiative and its pledge to heal religious differences. It is permissible for Muslims to lie and pretend to get along with people from other faiths, but “progressive” Muslims don’t adhere to that. When faced with either duplicity or a false doctrine of Islam, is it really a tri-faith initiative?
