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.Read More
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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

Happy Memorial Day everyone.
We honor our country’s fallen heroes by examining the Constitution and how this nation was founded.
John’s boralogue explores our once-guaranteed freedom of religion and the erosion of that freedom, especially in the military. It’s once more “don’t ask, don’t tell” in the armed forces, only this time it involves religion. Christians are frequently called “haters,” but it’s Christians who serve to feed the hungry, heal the sick, provide shelter for the homeless and they are often the first on the ground during disasters.
Technology has certainly emerged as essential in our lives, with cell phones and computers helping us. As information has expanded, private companies and governments have initiated data collection programs to “better serve” you, the user. But how can those databases be used against us, and is it a violation of both privacy and the Constitution? Bruce Schneier (www.schneier.com), Chief Technology Officer of Resilient Systems, says we’re making it up as we go along; it’s a complex question. Who has oversight of the process, and do the benefits outweigh privacy concerns? Moreover what is the future of rights under this new system?
How did we get here? We have been examining the questions surrounding worldview issues shaping our country the past century. This week we’ll look at the Catholic Church’s internal struggle with Marxist ideas masquerading as Christian ones. Cliff Kincaid (www.aim.org), Director of the Center for Investigative Journalism at Accuracy in Media, discusses the gradual infiltration into the Church of Gramscian Marxism and how that has manifested in today’s liberation theology.
Following this thread, Marxist infiltration of the Church was predicted nearly 20 years ago by the author and biblical scholar, Dr. Malachi Martin, a former Jesuit priest. John finishes this week’s program by reviewing interviews with Dr. Martin from both Art Bell’s show and Steel on Steel in the 1990s. It is sobering to realize how accurate his insights into the future are borne out by events today.
Dr. Malachi Martin was a former Jesuit priest, Vatican historian and close associate of Pope John XXIII. He has authored many books about his Vatican findings including The Keys of This Blood and Windswept House.
This set contains all seven discussions John had with Dr. Martin in the 1990s before his death in 1999. Dr. Martin details shocking allegations of Satanic practices within the Vatican as far back as 1963. One such alleged event was the ‘Enthronement of the Fallen Angel Lucifer’ on June 29th 1963. This was done within the citadel by a cadre of cardinals and other ranked Vatican officials.

There has been a steady movement for several decades to establish a Marxist government in this country. Suspending the boralogue this week, we take a look at Antonio Gramsci’s arm of Marxism and socialism in order to examine whether or not it will boot Judeo-Christianity not just out of the marketplace of ideas but out of politics as well. Joining us to discuss this is New Zealand author Trevor Loudon (www.trevorloudon.com). John and Trevor analyze the infiltration of Marxist ideals into the arenas of congress, global governments, journalism, education, economy, and religious organizations in order to forecast where our country is headed. “This is a mighty clash,” Trevor says, “between good and evil. And right now evil is winning.”
Who has chain of title to the land currently occupied by Israel and the Palestinians? As we continue our thread from last week on both the origins and future of Israel, we welcome to the program Salomon Benzimra (www.cilr.org), Co-Founder of Canadians for Israel’s Legal Rights. In answering that question, he explains the origins of the San Remo Conference, the difference between legal and illegal occupation, and details the history of Jews and Arabs in a disputed land that Israel legally holds the title to.

By now you’ve heard about the attempted violence at the Mohammed cartoon drawing contest this week in Garland, Texas. What’s more interesting has been the media’s reaction to it. In this week’s boralogue, John points out the fallacies and self-contradictory nature of progressive thinking. In playing a clip from Chris Matthews’s show on MSNBC, John counterpoints many of the errors made by their terrorism “expert.”
Among the many issues pushed to the forefront this week in the thwarted terrorist attack, the question of whether Muslims are able to acclimate to life in the United States was one not featured in the main stream media. Never fear, dear listener – we ask the hard questions! Here to answer them is sharia law expert and Muslim turned Christian attorney Daniel Akbari (www.stophonorkilling.com). He reveals that to the Muslim, sharia and honor killings take precedence over the Constitution in America, and clarifies the real definition of phobia.
Is there a push to force Israel back to its indefensible 1967 borders? Joining us on the program to answer that is Dr. Eugene Kontorovich (www.law.northwestern.edu), Law Professor at Northwestern University. He explains UN Resolutions 181 and 242 as well as the results of the San Remo Conference in the formation of the nation of Israel and the borders of the Middle East.
Join us for our Section 6 intelligence briefing, featuring analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world. This week, John takes an extensive look at the Trans Pacific Partnership and the implications should it pass.

Christine Lagarde of the IMF, President Obama, and Pope Francis are all drooling anthropogenic global warming – bring on the carbon tax! The Vatican hosted a confab this week about global warming. In his boralogue, John highlights the socialist buzz words found in UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon’s keynote address at the Vatican. It seems ‘sustainable development’ is not only the main topic of the speech, it also gets the drool flowing. We’ll take a look at sustainability this week.
When the Soviet Union collapsed and the Berlin Wall came down in 1989, what was a socialist to do? Thank goodness the concept of global warming came along a few years later. And with it came the new, rather vague, concept of sustainability. We welcome to the program Dr. Peter Wood (www.nas.org), President of the National Association of Scholars, who sheds some light on this popular issue. Several college campuses offer sustainability courses, but is it more about indoctrination and less about education? “It’s a shame in this country,” Peter says, “when the institution most dedicated to free speech has become the institution most hostile to free speech.”
This week, a massive earthquake struck Nepal, killing more than 5,000, injuring twice that many, and toppling thousands of homes and historic buildings. With the casualty numbers sure to rise, Dr. Paul Williams, M.D. (www.whenallplansfail.com), author of the emergency preparedness series When All Plan Fail, rejoins us to talk about the human toll and what we can do to help.
You’ve heard us mention on the program that the United States is slowly becoming an oligarchic dictatorship. Ellen Brown (www.publicbankinginstitute.org), Founder and Senior Advisor of the Public Banking Institute, discusses what that would look like. She also shows how the Trans Pacific Partnership is one of the catalysts pushing us toward this oligarchy.

Ethiopian Christians were killed by ISIS this week in Libya. Could that butchery be headed across the Atlantic? We jump into the fray this week with Chris Farrell (www.judicialwatch.org), Director of Investigations & Research for Judicial Watch. He discusses the legitimacy of ISIS staging areas a few miles across the U.S.-Mexico border near Juarez.
Expanding on this, Retired INS Special Agent Michael Cutler (www.michaelcutler.net) rejoins us on the program and uncovers critical problems with immigration procedures. ISIS on our southern borders is a serious issue, but terrorists have already set up shop inside the U.S., thanks in part to questionable enforcement policies.
We hear “Bush lied, people died.” Do we hear the same about Hilary Clinton when it comes to Benghazi? Daniel Greenfield (www.frontpagemag.com), Shillman Journalism Fellow with the David Horowitz Freedom Center, examines the Libyan war and looks at anti-U.S. bias from the left that is designed to weaken America and give strength to its enemies.
This past Sunday, April 19, marked the 20th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing. Even after two decades, there are questions that remain unanswered. Independent researcher Dr. Wendy Painting (www.lonewolfresearch.com) explores not only the theory that Timothy McVeigh acted as a lone wolf terrorist, but also the possibility that undercover government agents were involved.
Join us for our Section 6 intelligence briefing, featuring analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world. This week, John takes an extensive look at the background of Islam, the differences between Shia and Sunni sects, and the current proxy wars involving Islamic countries.Read More
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.
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.Read More
