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.

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.

150004 01/24/2015 Sleepwalking Through Iran

A controversy erupted recently when terrorism expert Stephen Emerson mistakenly referred to “all” of Birmingham, England as being a Muslim “no-go zone” on a FoxNews report. This caused a bit of an uproar amidst the politically correct

In this week’s boralogue, John examines the truth behind these No-Go Zones in certain European cities and asserts that as politically correct talking heads muddy the waters by carelessly discrediting what people are saying, we need to be able to freely and openly debate these issues.

First up, Reza Kahlili (www.atimetobetray.com), former CIA operative inside the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, discusses the current capabilities of Iran’s nuclear program, the regime’s plans once the program reaches its completion, and what, if anything, can ultimately be done about it.

Conservative radio talk show host Josh Bernstein (www.joshbernsteinpoliticalwriter.com), rejoins us this week to explain the emerging Trans-Pacific Partnership and show us the dangers of giving President Obama fast-track trade authority that would implement international rules and bypass the U.S. Constitution.

Joseph Meyer (www.straightmoneyanalysis.com), founder of management consultant firm Meyer & Associates, pulls on his four decades of financial experience to predict the future in different sectors of both the U.S. and global economies for 2015 and beyond.

John finishes out this week’s program with a brief commentary on the faithfulness and commitment of a Christian warrior in today’s church.

150003 01/17/2015 Rogue Events

In this week’s boralogue, John recalls the ups and downs of the financial markets in the past decade and looks at the impending currency crisis coming in 2016-2020. The first rumblings of this disaster can be seen in this week’s decision by Switzerland to pull their currency from the swiftly collapsing Euro market.

Josh Bernstein (www.joshbernsteinpoliticalwriter.com), published writer and host of a popular conservative radio talk show, kicks off the program by examining the potential slippery slope of the UN Small Arms Treaty and shows how it could likely supersede the second amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Next up, Giulio Meotti (www.giuliomeotti.com), Italian author and journalist, discusses the aftermath of the Charlie Hebdo massacre and how it involves not only violence and Islamism but also an attack on free speech.

In the wake of the new Republican Congress taking office, Dan Kish (www.instituteforenergyresearch.org), Senior Vice President for Policy at the Institute for Energy Research, pulls back the curtain on the Keystone Pipeline debate to find global warming activists fighting against the measure.

After a brief background on Church Reformation, John speaks with Ryan Houck (www.freemarketamerica.org), executive director of watchdog group Free Market America, who discusses his new book: Will America Fail, which analyzes the mindset of the millennial generation and the future of politics in America.

Sharia-ism is Here

150002 01/10/2015 Sharia-ism is Here

In the wake of the tragedy in Paris this week, John takes a look in his boralogue at islamaphobia and how hate speech laws are a farce and an impediment to freedom of speech. He also addresses the need for Islam to modernize and whether the rest of us can survive the violence until then.

First up on the program is Joy Brighton (www.joybrighton.com), former Wall Street trader and author of the book Sharia-ism is Here. She will examine the slow stealthy growth of radical Islam in the United States, and how that growth is being fueled both by political correctness and a general ignorance that there’s a problem.

Switching topics, we visit with Ed Smart (www.ourrescue.org), project leader at Operation Underground Railroad (OUR). He recalls the abduction of his daughter Elizabeth in 2002, the need for education among children regarding bullying, abuse and internet predators, and the processes of OUR to rescue children from traffickers and abusers.

For our paid subscribers, our weekly intelligence news briefing, Section 6, is back from holiday hiatus. John is back with comments on important stories making news around the world.

150001 01/03/2015 If It Feels Good, Sign Here

Welcome to 2015! We are skipping the boralogue this week. Opening up the show is Cal State Fresno professor and Hoover Institute member Bruce Thornton (www.hoover.org). He tackles the politics of feminism and shows how it has come full circle from the “if it feels good, do it” philosophy of the 1960s to the regulatory thinking of today.

Next up, Tammi Rossman-Benjamin (www.amchainitiative.org), lecturer at the UC Santa Cruz and director of the AMCHA Initiative, discusses the BDS movement (boycott, divestment, and sanctions) against Israel and how it has spawned antisemitism on U.S. campuses.

Finally, we visit with Tom Gallagher (blogs.telegraph.co.uk), professor at the University of Bradford in the UK and author of the new book Europe’s Path to Crisis, who discusses the history of the flawed Euro and the likely economic downfall of Europe.

Section 6, our weekly intelligence news briefing, continues its break, but rest assured, John will return in next week with his unique comments on news stories from around the world.

Once Upon a Climate Clear

140052 12/27/2014 Once Upon a Climate Clear

Last show of 2014 – Happy New Year everyone. We are skipping the boralogue this week and launching into the program. First up, Brad Dacus (www.pacificjustice.org), President of the Pacific Justice Institute, discusses the case of a senior at an Everett, WA high school who has been suspended several times for handing out Christian literature. For the school to do that is illegal under law. He also covers other cases that PJI is handling.

We then move on to Dr. Tim Ball (www.drtimball.com), environmentalist, public speaker, and author. In a detailed conversation, he chronologues the history of the anthropogenic warming movement, how it became politicized with the UNCED Conference in 1992, and wound up distorting real science. Dr. Ball chops through the mire of bureaucracy to get at the truth of climate change and the IPCC report.

Finally, we are joined by Rich Noyes (www.mrc.org), Senior Editor at the Media Research Center, who examines the lack of research that went into a Rolling Stones story about an alleged gang rape at a University of Virginia fraternity and how that relates to bias in the media.

Section 6, our weekly intelligence news briefing, is taking a break until the new year, but rest assured, John will return in 2015 with his unique comments on news stories from around the world.

140051 12/20/2014 Narratives

Merry Christmas everyone! Opening the show this week is a “narrativity” boralogue. John reveals the hypocrisy of the politically correct narrative which states that all worldviews are relative and none of them proclaim the truth – except of course for theirs! We need to get back to the issue of truth, not political correctness. God bless us every one.

As large anti-Islamic immigrant demonstrations take place in Germany, Middle East and Islam expert Raymond Ibrahim (www.raymondibrahim.com) explores the measures Russian leaders are taking to tackle the radicalization of Muslims in their country and shows the differences between the Islamic worldview and that of the West.

Then we discuss the role of narratives with international writer Alan Gold (www.heritagetrilogy.com), currently writing his new trilogy series about the Middle East, Bloodline. We’ll examine both the lack of modernism in Islam and the polarized narratives of the protagonists in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

For our paid subscribers, we continue our weekly intelligence news briefing, Section 6, where John comments on important stories making news around the world.

The Pink Elephant in the Room

140050 12/13/2014 The Pink Elephant in the Room

In the boralogue this week, John exposes the fallacy of institutional racism, the PC police campaign to silence those not in the minority, and how civil rights and free speech for everyone has been swept under the constitutional rug in the name of tolerance.

Clare Lopez (www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org and www.benghazicoalition.org), strategic policy and Middle East intelligence expert at the Center for Security Policy, debunks the House Intelligence report on the 2012 embassy attack in Benghazi and analyzes the rise of the Islamic State’s influence in the West.

Next on the program, William Forstchen (www.dayofwrathbook.com), professor of history at Montreat College in North Carolina and author of the new book Day of Wrath, discusses the very real possibility of ISIS attacks within the United States and the lack of preparation on our side.

Michael Connelly, (michaelconnelly.jigsy.com and www.usjf.net), constitutional attorney and Executive Director of the U.S. Justice Foundation, concludes his analysis of the U.S. Constitution this week by examining amendment number 26.

John Casey (www.spaceandscience.net or www.newsmax.com/darkwinter) , President of the Space and Science Research Corporation and author of the new book Dark Winter, analyzes global cyclical temperature patterns and shows that, instead of global warming, we should be preparing for an upcoming cold spell.

Devious Minds

140049 12/06/2014 Devious Minds

In this week’s boralogue, John proclaims personal responsibility and the need to behave honorably no matter what thoughts or actions we face. When police brutality and racism rear their ugly heads, those who are wronged should still, regardless of the system, take responsibility for their actions and their lives.

“Bush lied, people died,” so says the bumper sticker. Kicking off the show, Carter Andress (www.aisginc.com), president of American-Iraqi Solutions Group, a security management firm specializing in high-risk environments, discredits the bumper sticker, discussing the reality of WMDs in Iraq as well as the status of Iran’s nuclear program.

Joel Narlock (www.joelnarlock.com), author of several books including the new novel Drone Games, explores the rise of unmanned aerial vehicle sales in the private sector marketplace and the very real danger that drones could cause.

Constitutional attorney and Executive Director of the U.S. Justice Foundation, Michael Connelly, (michaelconnelly.jigsy.com and www.usjf.net), continues his point by point examination of the U.S. Constitution this week by analyzing amendment number 25.

Next on the program, Ryan Jones (www.israeltoday.co.il), reporter and editor for Israel Today in Jerusalem, shares his views of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, disparities in how each side views the other, and the western media’s distorted narrative of the war.

Finally, Seton Motley (www.lessgovernment.org and StopNetRegulation.org), president of Less Government, a DC-based non-profit, speaks about net neutrality, the dangers of government interference in operation of the internet, and the threat of regulating online speech.

Reconstructing Thanksgiving

140048 11/29/2014 Reconstructing Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving weekend everyone! The boralogue this week points out deconstructionist attempts to redefine Thanksgiving, shifting it from the ideals of freedom, liberty, and personal responsibility to focus on conquest of Native Americans while promoting social Darwinism. But don’t worry – John reminds us of the truth.

There’s a relationship between the values that emanated from the Reformation and what we celebrate during Thanksgiving. Dr. Timothy George (www.beesondivinity.com), is founding Dean and professor of Divinity History and Doctrine at the Beeson Divinity School at Samford University. He kicks off the show speaking on church history and what the Reformation accomplished.

Michael Connelly, (michaelconnelly.jigsy.com and www.usjf.net), constitutional attorney and Executive Director of the U.S. Justice Foundation, continues his analysis of the U.S. Constitution this week by examining amendment number 24.

Next on the program, J. Warner Wallace, (www.coldcasechristianity.com), homicide detective and one-time atheist is author of the book Cold-Case Christianity. He relates how his former views of atheism yielded to an honest examination of Christian claims like a detective would do, and points out that Christians should be better equipped to defend their faith.

John finishes the program this week by demonstrating how faith is actually a logical leap, even after examining mounds of evidence, and how several major religions begin with similar basic assumptions, but only Christianity offers God’s free gift of redemption.

Because of the holiday this week, we are skipping Section 6, but rest assured, it will return next week.

Don`t Bank On It

140047 11/22/2014 Don`t Bank On It

In the boralogue this week, John tackles the Middle East, showing that a religious storm is gathering on the horizon. Israel, Palestine, Egypt, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, and Iran are all factors in a troubling complex equation whose common denominator is Islam.

Switching gears, Craig R. Smith (www.swissamerica.com and www.dontbankonitbook.com), Chairman of Swiss America Trading Corporation and author of the new book Don’t Bank On It!, joins the show to discuss banks’ ownership of your money and how to diversify your funds to avoid the coming banking crisis.

Next, Kathy Fettke (www.realwealthnetwork.com), CEO and Co-Founder of Real Wealth Network, speaks with John about the challenges of qualifying for a home loan, accumulating student loan debt, and where the wealth market is going in the next several months.

Michael Connelly, (michaelconnelly.jigsy.com and www.usjf.net), constitutional attorney and Executive Director of the U.S. Justice Foundation, continues his analysis of the U.S. Constitution this week by examining amendment numbers 22 and 23. Since amendment 21 was a repeal of the 18th amendment and therefore has no other explanation, we are skipping that one.

We then transition to Susie Pierce (www.hslda.org), a West Virginia mother of three and member of the Richie County Home Educators cooperative, who reviews how the local school board members are waging a phone campaign to home school parents, trying to convince them to re-enroll their children in public school. Motive – well, money, of course.

Finally, Joe Baker (www.savethestorks.com), Founder and President of Save the Storks, addresses his organization’s growth over the past year as they reach as many women as possible with the truth about life and abortion.

To our paid subscribers, we continue our weekly intelligence new briefing, Section 6, where John comments on several stories making news around the world.

140046 11/15/2014 Behind the Scenes

John’s boralogue begins this week’s show with a look at why Washington never seems to change, regardless of who we vote into power, and why reform is harder to find than a simple IRS tax code. When reform is truly needed, you can’t get the status quo gears to change to solve the problem.

With the upcoming anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy, John welcomes to the show Judyth Vary Baker (www.jfkconference.com), author of the new book David Ferrie. She reveals first-hand accounts of behind-the-scenes plots in 1963, involving some of the key players in the assassination, including a character not often mentioned, David Ferrie.

Then Arina Grossu (www.frc.org), Director of the Center for Human Dignity at the Family Research Council, examines abortion coverage in the Affordable Care Act, how there is very little to no options for those who are pro-life, and how even if you don’t plan to have an abortion, you are still paying for those that do.

We finish off the show with our weekly look at the amendments to the U.S. Constitution with Michael Connelly, (michaelconnelly.jigsy.com and www.usjf.net), constitutional attorney and Executive Director of the U.S. Justice Foundation. He will analyze amendment numbers 19 and 20.

To our paid subscribers, we continue the Section 6 podcast, our weekly intelligence new briefing, where John comments on several stories making news around the world.
