150031 08/01/2015 Influence

Each and every one of us has the potential to influence the world for good. John gives us two examples of individuals in this week’s boralogue who decided to step out in faith and help those in need. The first, George Weidenfeld, escaped the Nazis during WWII when brave Christians spirited him away from danger. Today, at the age of 95, George is still repaying that generosity by helping persecuted Christians in the Middle East escape violent Islamism. And Katherine Locke, a retired nurse in her 70s, helped Kurdish Christians in Iraq during the time of Saddam Hussein. We can make a difference. What will our influence be?

A Pakistani Christian, who we’ll name Pastor X, has fled his home with his family to another country. Authorities in that country are threatening to deport them back to Pakistan where being a Christian is a dangerous way of life. John has begun raising funds to help this family complete citizenship paperwork and avoid persecution. If you would like to help, go to our homepage (www.steelonsteel.com) and click on the link to support Pastor X.

Throughout WWII and the Cold War, the Soviet Union activated several journalists as spies. Matthew Vadum (www.matthewvadum.com), Senior Editor at the Capital Research Center, shows that journalists made excellent spies due to their high-level contacts in business and government, and their ability to influence those decision makers. Today, the media have evolved into activist journalists who think of themselves as correspondents of the world with no loyalty to America.

Exerting an enormous amount of influence on Pope Francis is his scientific advisor, Hans Schellnhuber, a devout atheist. Rejoining us is Matt Briggs (www.wmbriggs.com), Author and Adjunct Professor of Statistics at Cornell University, who discusses the Pope’s latest encyclical, the largely false information contained it, and how Francis’s advisor is pushing for a one –world government with a global council, an earth constitution, and a world court.

Finally, we welcome back Luis Fleischman (www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org), Senior Advisor at the Center for Security Policy. He recalls the cover-up surrounding the death of prosecutor Alberto Nisman, who was investigating an Iranian terrorist attack in Argentina in the 1990s. He shows Argentina’s stand with Iran against perceived imperialism from the West, socialist collaboration between Cuba and Venezuela, and terrorist security threats to the U.S. found in tunnels underneath our borders.Our weekly intelligence news briefing, Section 6!

As always, join us online for our weekly Section 6 intelligence briefing, featuring analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world.

Eroding Foundation

150030 07/25/2015 Eroding Foundation

Outrage is all the, well, rage these days. In this week’s boralogue, John examines stories generating much indignation in the news. First, the Obama administration wants to ban gun ownership for Social Security recipients, who lack the mental capacity to manage their own affairs. Question: who determines mental capacity? Also, when Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley recently said that all lives matter, he was booed by outraged protestors and later apologized! It should be a level playing field. We all have inherent rights that should apply to everyone equally. It’s a novel concept found in the Declaration of Independence. There are those who are destroying the moral foundation they stand on for the sake of being outraged.

Predictions are useful only if someone listens and takes heed. Back for another appearance is former Senior Associate at the U.S. Department of Education, Dennis Cuddy (www.newswithviews.com), who recalls many accurate predictions he made in 2013 and forecasts potential terrorist threats just around the corner, including large scale forest fires, poison spray at grocery stores, and IEDs damaging our transportation systems.

This week an undercover group exposed a profit-making scheme selling fetal body parts by Planned Parenthood. John Zmirak (www.saveourcentury.com), Senior Editor at The Stream, joins us and calls for the defunding of America’s largest abortion factory. He uncovers the history of the organization and its racist founder, Margaret Sanger, who would use any issue to advance her core ideology, built on an eroding foundation of sexual liberation and population control.

Joe Baker (www.savethestorks.com), Founder and President of Save the Storks, is on the front line in the abortion battle. Instead of protesting in anger, he shows how God continues to lead his organization’s efforts to educate expectant mothers outside abortion clinics so they can make an educated choice.

John transitions into a second boralogue imploring that each of us individually can stand up and make a difference in this world and that is things look darker, we should be more optimistic rather than worse. Through prayer and petition, God lead us to His good work.

Finally, we’ll continue the thread surrounding Pope Francis’s words and actions. Jorge Velarde Rosso (www.acton.org), Founder and Research Director of LIBERA in Bolivia, gives us a Bolivian Catholic’s perspective on the Pope’s recent visit to South America. Professor Rosso admits his distress at the Pope’s embrace of extreme leftist politics, but reveals he is not surprised given the political climate in Latin America.

Our weekly intelligence news briefing, Section 6!As always, join us online for our weekly Section 6 intelligence briefing, featuring analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world. John follows up on last week’s Section 6 with the details from the recent P5+1 Iranian nuclear agreement.

Semantic Kool-Aid

150029 07/18/2015 Semantic Kool-Aid

When the media and the politically correct elites give you their version of events, they want you to drink the semantic cyanide-laced Kool-Aid. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at micro-aggressions, the Confederate flagless General Lee car on the Dukes of Hazard, and Islamic terrorists who have nothing to do with Islam. The semantic cyanide Kool-Aid reveals itself in forcing everyone to think the same way and in the ridiculous contradiction that to promote tolerance you have to be intolerant toward those who disagree with you.

Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair recently became chairman of the European Council on Tolerance and Reconciliation, a group that looks to monitor speech and behavior to promote a climate of tolerance. Samuel Westrop (www.gatestoneinstitute.org), Senior Fellow at the Gatestone Institute, joins us to discuss the group’s intolerant behavior toward those who dissent and how its’ mission statement favors censorship over freedom of expression.

We transition from Europe to Latin America where the Pope finished a trip this week that included a speech on economics, a topic he admits to know very little about. Director of Research at the Acton Institute, Samuel Gregg (www.acton.org), examines the pontiff’s comments against capitalism, shows how free market economies have historically been the most successful, and asks the question, “If not capitalism, then what?” Hint: no one has an answer.

Christians are being persecuted around the world at an alarming rate. Juliana Taimoorazy (www.iraqichristianrelief.org), Founder and President of the Iraqi Christian Relief Council, exposes the long wait time for many displaced Christians to receive refugee status and recounts her organization’s efforts to help those persecuted refugees by providing food, shelter, and education.

Christians are also being persecuted here in the United States, though more through litigious means. Aaron Klein (www.facebook.com/savesweetcakesbymelissa), who along with his wife Melissa, is standing up for freedom of religion in dealing with the fallout from refusing to bake a cake for a lesbian wedding in Oregon. He updates us on his case, revealing the recent gag order demanding he not speak his views on same sex marriage because it would be construed as discriminatory. This flies in the face of the first amendment to the Constitution!

Our weekly intelligence news briefing, Section 6!As always, join us online for our weekly Section 6 intelligence briefing, featuring analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world. This week John examines the recent Iran nuclear agreement and its potential impact around the world.

Greek Tragedy

Member Login to Listen/Download MP3 of Entire Broadcast


150028 07/11/2015 Greek Tragedy

How exactly did Greece end up in this position? In this week’s boralogue, John reviews the steps taken by countries that result in the quagmire Greece finds itself in today. Convincing, yet empty promises evolve into large bureaucracies, corruption, and higher taxes. Inflation results, debts can’t be paid, austerity begins, and people realize that something for nothing is a myth. Politicians play the blame game as banks fail and the very citizens who were to benefit from those convincing promises are left to ponder what happened. Greece is there today. Will the U.S. be there tomorrow?

However did we get here with education? George Bernard Shaw said, “We learn from history that we learn nothing from history.” With Common Core in the classroom, that may literally be the truth. Dennis Cuddy (www.newswithviews.com), former Senior Associate at the U.S. Department of Education, joins us to look at the history of Common Core curriculum, its politically correct selection of topics to teach, and the truth behind what socialist architects were really trying to accomplish.

A day of reckoning is imminent in Greece, as years of bloated government spending have finally caught up to the beleaguered nation. Trinity Advisors founder John Sitilides (www.trilogyadvisors.net) examines the harsh reality of circumstances facing citizens in Greece and how it compares with America’s current financial situation.

Greece’s recent ‘no’ vote on austerity measures will ultimately do little to hold back creditors. Pat Wood (www.technocracyrising.com), Founder of the August Corporation, continues our discussion on Greece by showing how this transformation of the global economy links to the issues of technocracy, sustainable development, and Pope Francis’s recent encyclical on climate change.

This week, John discusses several recent Supreme Court decisions and their impact.

Shall Not Have Died in Vain

Member Login to Listen/Download MP3 of Entire Broadcast


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

Member Login to Listen/Download MP3 of Entire Broadcast


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.
