150016 04/18/2015 However Did We Get Here?

This week the country observed the 150th anniversary of the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. John examines the many contradictions that have plagued our nation since Lincoln’s time. Those who preach tolerance are being anything but. We can stop being racists by being obsessed with it. We can all be diverse and different, but only by being the same. We may not even realize that we’re sleepwalking into World War III. However did we get here? That’s the direction of the program for today.

First we turn to Diana West (www.dianawest.net), journalist and author of American Betrayal: The Secret Assault on Our Nation’s Character. She discusses the steady stealthy Marxist infiltration of our government that began in the 1930s, and how this has shaped decisions made in the years since. She also compares the Cold War deals made between the U.S. and the Soviet Union with the impending framework deal with Iran.

What is the social contract and what happens when the citizens of a state believe their government is violating it? Dr. Pippa Malmgren, Ph.D. (www.drpmgroup.com), former Special Assistant to President George W. Bush on economic policy, analyzes the oftentimes turbulent renegotiation of the social contract between citizens and their state. There should be a balance of power between the individual or corporation to make a profit and the power of the state to tax them. When this fails, problems develop.

Our weekly intelligence news briefing, Section 6!Join us as we continue our weekly intelligence news briefing, Section 6, which features comments by John on important stories making news around the world. This week, John takes an extensive look at the IMF and the endgame of climate change advocates for a carbon tax.

What`s the Deal?

Member Login to Listen/Download MP3 of Entire Broadcast


150015 04/11/2015 What`s the Deal?

A study in duality today as John looks at the safety of those whose opinions are in the minority and where they are safest. Is it in this country, where a university won’t screen “American Sniper” for fear of offending Muslims in attendance? Or is it in Kenya, where Christians were systematically executed at Garissa University just for being Christian? Go ahead, think hard!

The P5+1/Iran agreement may have delayed a nuclear weapon build-up but Iran is building alliances with terror proxies in the Middle East like Hezbollah and Hamas, so they are still a danger to Israel.

Just what exactly is this “deal” with Iran’s nuclear program? Don’t we have an agreement now? Problem is that the agreement was simply an agreement to agree to something in the future, but now the parties can’t even agree on what they agreed to agree upon. We need an attorney! Gayle Trotter (www.gayletrotter.com), partner at the Washington DC law firm Shafer & Trotter, dissects the Iran deal, really nothing more than a framework for later discussions, and how Iran may well come out of this better than the West or Israel as with an expanding nuclear program.

What does Iran’s support of terrorism mean for the U.S.? Retired INS Special Agent Michael Cutler (www.michaelcutler.net), says our border enforcement is broken and reform is urgently needed to deal with the very real threat of sleeper terrorist cells infiltrating our country. He also explains how voters must stay informed before voting or they just may get a government they don’t care for.

Join us for our Section 6 intelligence briefing, featuring analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world. This week features an extensive look at Russia’s place on the global chessboard.

Happy Easter, everyone. Christ is risen. This week we take a look at the history of Easter, ahem, I mean Resurrection Sunday. Wait, no it’s Easter. What is it called? Also, did you know there was a controversy as to when Easter is to be celebrated? John sorts it all out in this week’s boralogue and ties it to the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) controversy in Indiana.

Speaking of which, did anyone miss the row this week caused by the RFRA in Indiana? The circus and misinformation ran rampant, but factual accuracy barely made a cameo. Travis Weber (www.frc.org), Director for Religious Liberty at the Family Research Council, sorts out the controversy and wording behind the bill and shows what the mainstream media won’t in the legislation’s true purpose.

Switching to the subject of healthcare, Twila Brase (www.cchfreedom.org), President of the Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom, explains the dangers of interoperability, which means your healthcare records would sooner or later be available to the world. Did you ever wonder about all the fine print on the HIPAA privacy forms found at your doctor’s office and are you actually required to sign them?

So what happens when a medical company unexpectedly becomes entangled in the complex jungle of regulations it faces? We welcome to the program Michael Daugherty (www.devilinsidethebeltway.com), President and CEO of LabMD, an Atlanta-based clinical laboratory, who discusses his book: Devil Inside the Beltway. Like all page-turning thrillers, there’s intrigue including computer hacking, blackmail, illegal surveillance and overwhelming odds against an unstoppable foe. This thriller is nonfiction, though, and reveals the potential consequences to American small businesses.

The Clash of Worldviews

150013 03/28/2015 The Clash of Worldviews

Latte, latte, my kingdom for a latte! You guessed it! The boralogue this week features King Richard III and Starbucks, though admittedly not in the same sentence. After 529 years, the remains of King Richard III were transported to their final resting place. John recaps Richard’s ruthless rise to the throne and shows how politicians haven’t changed much.

Also, it seems the Starbucks plan to discuss race with its customers ended as quickly as it began. John shares a conversation he had with a barista this week that contained two things the barista wasn’t trained for confronting logic and critical thinking.

First up this week, Andre Schutten (www.arpacanada.ca), General Counsel and Ontario Director for the Association for Reformed Political Action, analyzes the religious freedom case of Loyola High School in Montreal, which the Canadian Supreme Court upheld this week providing Christian schools with the right to teach ethics the way they see fit.

What happens when you wake up and suddenly realize that your church has been hijacked by a surreptitious new message? Chelsen Vicari (www.theird.org), Evangelical Program Director at the Institute on Religion and Democracy, discusses her new book “Distortion: How the New Christian Left is Twisting the Gospel”, revealing how progressivism is slowly changing the evangelical church.

Finally, Vern Westgate (www.vernwrites.com), retired Air Force vet and NASA engineer, joins us in the studio to examine the latest National Geographic cover story “The War on Science,” that was featured on the March 2015 magazine cover. Vern tackles the scientific fallacies and presuppositions behind man-made global warming and the big bang theory and questions the new scientific method.Our weekly intelligence news briefing, Section 6!

150012 03/21/2015 Watershed Events

Welcome to spring! As we turn to a new season on the calendar, we also turn the page on another election is Israel. We are suspending the boralogue this week and jumping into a series of four unique voices who will lend us their views on what they believe is coming in the next 24-48 months for the West as well as for the Middle East in general and for Israel in particular.

Giving us a direct view from inside, Avi Lipkin (www.vicmord.com), joins us first from Israel to comment on the victory this week by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and to touch on America’s less than stellar history in honoring agreements with the Jewish state.

What would happen if President Obama’s deal with Iran is consummated? Steven Rosen (www.meforum.org), Director of the Washington Project at the Middle East Forum, explores the possibilities for the region not only if the deal were passed but also if Obama steps in agreement with the Palestinian Authority on the international criminal court.

When Islamic terrorists ratchet up attacks on those in the West, will our response be the same as it’s always been? Lt. Col. Scott Mann, retired U.S. armed forces Green Beret and head of the Stability Institute, offers an alternative solution. Our policy will need to change because, he says, “We might be done with violent extremism, but it’s not done with us.”

Finally, we welcome to the program Lauri Regan (www.whitecase.com), attorney for White & Case in New York, who examines the weakness in U.S. policy and how it may take another attack of massive proportions for our nation to wake up to our lapsing security.

Our weekly intelligence news briefing, Section 6!Join us for our weekly Section 6 intelligence briefing, featuring analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world. This week, John takes a look at orthodoxy and dissenters.

Rolling Across the Flats

150011 03/14/2015 Rolling Across the Flats

A moral equivalency controversy followed President Obama’s comments at the National Prayer Breakfast and many Christians were offended. John analyzes in this week’s boralogue how the comparison given was offensive not because it wasn’t true, but because it was taken out of context. Christianity has moved past its warts. Has Islam?

Rick Moran (www.rightwingnuthouse.com), host of the RINO Hour of Power radio show, joins us first to examine the attempt by a group of UC Irvine students to ban the American flag from inclusive spaces on campus because it may constitute hate speech to those who may be offended.

Next up on the program, Fred Fleitz (www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org), Senior Fellow at the Center for Security Policy and retired U.S. national security veteran, discusses NSA programs to monitor Congressional emails and who oversees the overseers when it comes to the dissemination of information.

Dr. Adam Olscamp (www.northwestspecialty.com), orthopedic surgeon at Northwest Specialty Hospital in north Idaho, explores the growth of medical tourism as Canadians cross the border for better treatment, and touches on where health care is headed in the United States.

Finally we welcome David Skeel (www.trueparadoxblog.com), Professor of Corporate Law at the University of Pennsylvania, who discusses his book True Paradox and how Christianity beautifully explains many of the complexities found in the universe.

150010 03/07/2015 What Is He Doing?

In this week’s abbreviated boralogue, John shies away from the unimportant questions being asked about President Obama – is he a Christian?, is he a communist? – and focuses more on the dynamics. Why has he turned his back on Israel? Where did our president’s ideologies come from?

This leads directly to our conversation with Dr. Paul Kengor, Ph.D., (www.visionandvalues.org), professor of political science at Grove City College in Pennsylvania. Professor Kengor delves into Barack Obama’s background and illuminates the Communist and Islamic mentors in the early life of our president, and how influential those experiences are to him today.

Building on this knowledge, John speaks with Avi Davis (www.americanfreedomalliance.org), President of the American Freedom Alliance. He examines the topic of moral equivalency in the wake of Obama’s comments comparing the Crusades with violent Islamic jihad at the National Prayer Breakfast recently.

Finally Professor Luis Fleischman (www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org) from Florida Atlantic University and Senior Advisor at the Center for Security Policy highlights South American issues including the current situation in post-Chavez Venezuela, as well as the death of Argentine prosecutor Alberto Nisman, and how Iran may be involved in both countries.

This week, John analyzes ethics and discusses the fallout following Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech to Congress this week.

With the upcoming speech to Congress by Benjamin Netanyahu, John’s extended boralogue this week focuses on the political battle behind the scenes, the differences in worldviews between Israel’s prime minister and President Obama, and how political reality is not driving the wagon in the West. John goes on to explore the history of U.S.-Israeli relations and touches on a few persecution stories making headlines this week.

Patrick Wood (www.technocracyrising.com), Founder of the August Corporation and author of the new book Technocracy Rising, discusses the new globalization plan, massive data collection, and its inevitable endgame. This is all being done without the consent of the governed and it’s heading toward a scientific dictatorship.

The Islam Report

150008 02/21/2015 The Islam Report

Storm clouds, they are a gathering. In this week’s boralogue, John examines the two primary storm clouds amassing on the geopolitical horizon. The first is Iran, the development of their nuclear program, and their strategic partnerships in the Middle East that are systematically surrounding the nation of Israel. The second involves Greece and the looming currency crisis that just may spread to the rest of Europe.

John welcomes back to the program after a long hiatus Bill Federer (www.americanminute.com), president of AmeriSearch publishing, who illustrates the impact of Islam throughout history and shows how Thomas Jefferson handled the problem of Islamic piracy in the early 19th century.

James Simpson (www.watchdog.org), economist and freelance investigative journalist, explores the topic of net neutrality, the risks in regulating the internet, and the all too dangerous likelihood of a government takeover of this “utility.”

Finally, Aaron Klein (www.sweetcakesweb.com), Christian co-owner of Sweet Cakes by Melissa, an Oregon-based bakery, discusses religious freedom and the truth behind the discrimination court case against him and his wife for refusing to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple.

Education`s Core Problem

150007 02/14/2015 Education`s Core Problem

We’re under attack from the “comma buts.” Welcome to Steel on Steel. In John’s boralogue this week, he exposes the hypocrisy of the politically correct elites and their views on free speech. “Freedom of speech is OK – comma but – only if you think the way we do.” We should have the right to express beliefs and ideas that our opponents may find controversial. This PC think is a deadly virus and it’s time we begin quarantining it. I will not sit down. I will not shut up!

The burning alive of the Jordanian pilot by ISIS has dominated the news in the past week. We welcome to the program Dr. Stephen Kirby (www.islamseries.org), retired Los Angeles Police Department investigator, who explores the history of Islam, recounting events and examining Islamic principles as it relates to the burning alive of apostate Muslims and non-Muslims.

Dr. Grazie Pozo Christie (www.thecatholicassociation.org), a diagnostic radiologist in Miami, Florida, discusses free speech and the case of Kelvin Cochran, former Fire Chief of the Atlanta Fire Department, who was fired after his self-published book advocated traditional Biblical marriage between a man and a woman.

Rounding out the program this week, Anita Hoge (www.abcsofdumbdown.com), national speaker and educational consultant and researcher, examines the history of education in America, Common Core, and the dangers of collecting personally identifiable information on children.

John takes a walk around the world in this week’s boralogue, interconnecting events from Europe, the Middle East, and North America and showing, briefly, how the global chessboard is laid out. One thing’s for sure: whoever’s playing at the chessboard, they hate the Jews.

First up, John welcomes to the program Larry Salzman (www.endforfeiture.com), an attorney with the Institute for Justice, who discusses the misuses of civil forfeiture and the pros and cons of the new FAIR Act proposed by Congress that would attempt to reform the law.

Soeren Kern (www.soerenkern.com), Senior Fellow at the Gatestone Institute and expert in European politics, analyzes the controversy surrounding the existence of no-go zones in European cities and the emergence of Sharia law within these zones.

Rounding out the program this week is Patrick Dunleavy (www.patrickdunleavy.com), retired Inspector General with the New York State Criminal Justice System, who examines the history and racial breakdown of the radicalization of Muslims within the U.S. prison system.Our weekly intelligence news briefing, Section 6!

150005 01/31/2015 To Seize and Plunder No More

Civil forfeiture has been a hot button topic at Steel on Steel for many years. In the boralogue this week, John gives us a history of civil forfeiture and shows how it has grown from a nice idea to a mechanism for extortion. The FAIR Act was introduced this week in Congress and looks to reform the many constitutional violations found in forfeiture laws. Will Congress do the right thing?

Up first this week, John speaks with Kathleen Hartnett-White (www.texaspolicy.com), Director of the Armstrong Center at the Texas Public Policy Foundation. She examines the popularity of renewable energies, and how, despite ringing endorsements from the global warming crowd, traditional energies will be needed as a backup to keep ahead of demand.

We then transition to Brian Grim (www.religiousfreedomandbussiness.org), President of the Religious Freedom & Business Foundation, who shows how, in the face of persecution in China, Christians are contributing to the vitality of the country’s economy.

With violence from radical Islamists continuing to rage around the world, Jonathan Keiler (www.parentsandpgcps.ning.com), world history teacher at Bowie High School in Maryland, joins us to discuss the dichotomy between moderate and radical Muslims and whether Islam is willing and/or able to reform.
