Is America transforming its foundation from rock to sand? In this week’s extended boralogue, John shows that secularism is on the rise, slowly replacing Christianity as the moral governor of the land. But there can be no basis for a moral foundation without having a higher power. The controversy between All Lives Matter and Black Lives Matter is used as an example to show that if you take away the higher power and allow the state to be moral arbiter, the only lives that count are the ones sanctioned by the state. When the rains descend, the floods come, and the winds blow, will our house still be standing?
This weekend the United Nations is hosting the Sustainable Development Summit 2015, with representatives from around the world in attendance, including Pope Francis. Is sustainable development nothing more than an attempt to establish a one-world government? What will societal change and social justice look like? Will our foundation begin to shake?
Joining us for a round table discussion this week are Karen Schoen (www.karenschoen.com), Found of AgEnders and Host of American Freedom Watch Radio, and Tom DeWeese (www.americanpolicy.org), President of the American Policy Center and author of the DeWeese Report. They reveal the truth behind sustainable development and the 2030 Agenda, and discuss wealth redistribution, climate change, abolishment of property rights, and who has ultimate control over water resources, education, and the economy. Beware the fundamental transformation of society!
Finally, we welcome WorldNet Daily writer Doug Ernst (www.wnd.com), who reveals a directive from President Obama ordering psychologists to search for ways to manipulate the American people into believing that the government is doing what’s best for them. Apparently, the ends we are told we want justify the means we didn’t know existed.

What is truth? In this week’s boralogue, Johns examines church members who are claiming to be Christians but don’t believe in Christ and atheist ministers who still want to lead their church congregations. Why be part of a belief system you don’t believe in? There is such a thing as absolute truth, even for those who claim there isn’t. If you believe in truth, it makes a demand upon you that you live according to that truth. But politicians and many in the church today adhere to a politically correct version of reality that stands in opposition to actual truth. One day they will come to realize — as all of us will — that truth is reality and it always wins out.
We continue our thread this week highlighting Christian persecution and welcome to the program Nasir Bhatti (www.pakistanchristiancongress.org), President of the Pakistan Christian Congress. He examines the delays that Christians encounter in receiving refugee status from the United Nations and touches on the immigration problems facing Europe.
“The nine most terrifying words in the English language,” former President Ronald Reagan once said, “are, ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.’ “One might urge the government to look up the word ‘help’ in the dictionary. The EPA, an element of said government, has launched a campaign to control every drop of water in the United States, even at the expense of property rights and it’s causing a retain in many states.
Seton Motley (www.lessgovernment.org), President of Less Government and hydrologist Dr. Jay Lehr (www.heartland.org), Science Director at the Heartland Institute, discuss the agency’s overreach and regulations and propose a plan to phase out federal control in favor of state responsibility. Can it be implemented or will it slowly drown in a sea of bureaucracy?
John finishes up with a behind the scenes look at Roman Catholicism, papal infallibility, and the weight of authority behind papal teaching and how that is affecting geopolitics.

When a tragedy happens, it’s best to get at the truth behind it and work to prevent a re occurrence. In this week’s boralogue, John ties together numerous stories from the past few decades and shows that to get at that truth you need to ask the hard questions. Time and again, answers and effective solutions are thwarted by the politically correct mantra of the day. We must learn from history or we are doomed to repeat it.
This week marks the 14th anniversary of the September 11 attacks and we remember the victims and the heroes who died that awful day and thank them for their sacrifice. A decade and a half later, are we making the same political errors we made prior to 9/11? The question we have to ask is: have we learned from our mistakes? Joining us this week to answer these questions are Michael Cutler (www.michaelcutler.net), Retired Special Agent with the former Immigration and Naturalization Services, and Dan Gordon (www.dayofthedeadlibertyedition.com), Captain in the Israeli Defense Forces.
With another terror attack looming on the horizon, is the United States doing all it can to prevent this from happening? We learn that it may be déjà vu all over again as corruption has increased between Mexican cartel members and border agents, Iran has sleeper cells ready to attack at a moment’s notice, and U.S. immigration policies have kowtowed to political correctness, allowing thousands to cross our borders with nothing more than a rubber stamp of approval. We cannot afford to ignore security measures proposed after 2001.
For the past few weeks, we have highlighted the need for ordinary people to do extraordinary things. This week, we welcome Pastor Dave Witt (www.spiritofmartyrdom.com), Founder of Spirit of Martyrdom Ministries, who explains the difference between Christian and Islamic martyrs and shows that he is just one man making a difference for Christ in this world. We can do it too.
Our weekly Section 6 intelligence briefing returns this week featuring analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world. This week, John takes a closer look at the global impact of China’s economy.Read More
Will our freedoms erode on the altar of political correctness? How does Donald Trump fit into all of this? In this week’s boralogue, John examines stories from Denver to Quebec to Washington state of progressive elites quashing freedom of speech. For a half century, these same liberals advocated for the very freedoms they look to silence now. Americans are tired of it and Donald Trump, good candidate or not, has expressed this sentiment. It’s balderdash and we’re not going to tolerate it anymore!
Christians are persecuted daily around the world and we are finding it is up to us as individuals to do what we can to help. Joining us is Dr. Phyllis Chesler (www.phyllis-chesler.com), Emerita Professor of Psychology at City University of New York, who analyzes the failures of the international community to help these persecuted Christians and shows we are on course for a reversal of reality. Political correctness and bureaucracy are standing in the way of doing what is morally right. As a result, women and children are repeatedly assaulted, but thanks to civilian volunteers, some are getting much needed help. What can you do?
For the past few weeks, we have told you the story of Pakistani Christian Pastor X and his family. This week, he relates his experience fleeing persecution in his home country and thanks Steel on Steel listeners for their generosity. His desire is to pay that kindness forward by helping others.
With the now infamous Iran nuclear deal nearing approval in Congress, views within the Christian church are as diverse as the secular world. We welcome the founder of Olive Tree Ministries, Susan Warner (www.israelolivetree.org), who discusses the Pope and liberation theology, the peace and justice crowd, and how opinions within the Church, whether Protestant or Catholic, all boil down to how you feel toward Israel.
The Section 6 intelligence briefing is still on hiatus this week as we take some time off for the summer. It will return later in September.Read More
