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.

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!

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.

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.
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 political activities of the Vatican as a member of the global community.Read More
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.
