Steel on Steel has always focused on economics, politics, and religion. In this week’s boralogue, John explains why those three are so closely intertwined, showing as an example the political, religious, and economic implications behind China’s social scoring system. Once you have examined an issue from those three angles, you will always have a clearer picture of what’s really going on.

Will Russia ever be a westernized country? Brandon Weichert (www.weichertreport.com), Manager of the Weichert Report, answers that question by analyzing Russia’s transcontinental history along with the current geopolitics of the Russian Federation in the Middle East and with the West.

How can people discern between the truth and fake news coming from the media and the political parties. Author and historian Daniel Mallock (www.newenglishreview.org) is back with us to examine the history of partisan rhetoric, how the death of a political party begins, and why so many people are walking away from the Left.

John and Producer Steve finish out the show this week discussing the bigger picture behind the Kavanaugh accusation: the dangerous precedent a derailment of his candidacy would cause and the suspicious timing of the whole thing.

John’s quote of the week:
“In the United States, thanks to the first amendment to the Constitution, our government can’t muzzle dissenting views, so they are allowing their cronies in social media to do it for them. It’s the key mark of a failing worldview that the only thing left to do is to shut people up.”

In this week’s Section 6, John looks at examples of people who have been silenced on college campuses for saying politically incorrect things, but those people are now beginning to push back. He goes on to examine church doctrine and theology regarding the gospel of Jesus Christ.

If socialism is such a wonderful concept, why does it always fail and result in tragic results? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the evils of socialism using Nicaragua and Venezuela as case studies, contrasting the totalitarianism in those countries with the freedoms our Constitution provides here. The media will always praise socialism but we know the truth: it fails whenever it rears its Marxist head.

Social justice has morphed into a politically correct cudgel against free speech, but did it start out that way? Michael Rectenwald (www.springtimeforsnowflakes.com), Liberal Studies Professor at NYU, rejoins the program to discuss how the origins of social justice were rooted in conservatism and family, but from there morphed into its current form of political correctness and totalitarianism.

After so many years of so-called importance, why is the issue of climate change found near the bottom of many people’s concern lists now? Anthony Watts (www.wattsupwiththat.com), Founder and Editor of climate blog Watts Up With That, looks at both the history and future of climate change mania and notes the coercive tactics that alarmists have used to enforce their narrative.

The Catholic Church abuse scandal could be worse than many realize. Philip Lawler (www.catholicculture.org), Director of Catholic Culture, examines the internal politics of the Church, how the Pope factors into it, and the often overlooked need for reform.

John’s quote of the week:
“In free societies, the laws are limited and very clear. In totalitarian societies, they are many and they are vague. That way anyone can be guilty whenever they have to be. So people start self-censoring for fear of arbitrarily violating these norms, which are constantly changing.”

In this week’s Section 6, John contemplates the meaning of life, dives into an alien conspiracy theory, shows the totalitarian mindset among different groups, follows up with news on the Catholic Church, and finishes up with a Christian persecution update.

Is it possible to understand what’s really going on around the world and at the same time lower your anxiety level? In this week’s boralogue, John explains his approach to looking at any issue, always analyzing the truth of any situation and understanding how to wade through the several layers of nonsense to get at the real issue underneath. The battle is between global socialism and traditional Judeo-Christian values. Regardless of the battle or the issue, God will prevail.

Evil always rides in on the back of a white horse. Marxist policies of “equality for all” sound great but ultimately fail, costing thousands if not millions of lives. Peter Hammond (www.frontlinemissionsa.org), Founder and Director of Frontline Fellowship, discusses the South African government’s seizure of land from white farmers and how socialism has planted roots there.

Dangers exist against the U.S. from around the world but could our greatest threats originate from inside our country? Frank Hawkins (www.americanthinker.com), former U.S. Army Intelligence officer, examines several internal threats including Islamist terror strikes, suppression of speech, and of course, fake news.

John finishes off the show this week analyzing narratives and realities pertaining to geopolitics, the Middle East peace process, and situations in Germany and other areas of Europe.

John’s quote of the week:
“There has been a push toward global pantheistic socialism, which has been underway for 50-60 years. But they are now beginning to bemoan its demise because its ideals have drifted far from the reality of what is happening on the ground.”

In this week’s Section 6, John and Producer Steve look at the greater worldview implications on hot news topics including the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing and the circus it became, a new book alleging quotes from Trump officials that may or may not be true, and the controversial anonymous New York Times op-ed from an alleged senior government official.

What’s the difference between a hypocrite and one who fails to live up to his or her own standards? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the cover-up in the Catholic Church and how scandal and major changes seem to happen in the Church every 500 years. There’s a failure to take ownership of the sin and though an issue may be fixed, the cause of that issue remains.

America hasn’t had slavery for 150 years but it does still exist in other parts of the world. Charles Jacobs (www.peaceandtolerance.org), President of Americans for Peace and Tolerance, shows where slavery thrives today and why human rights organizations in the West are silent about it.

What happens when Mahmoud Abbas rejects whatever solution to the peace process the Trump administration proposes? Ariel Ben Solomon (www.jns.org), Deputy Online Editor at Jewish News Syndicate and a resident of Israel, describes the philosophy of Hamas when it comes to dealing with the West and how Western solutions may not work in the Middle East.

America is awful and racist and was founded on horrible precepts, so says liberal academia and modern leftists. John Zmirak (www.stream.org), Senior Editor at The Stream, shows how this progressive mindset was fractured with the election of Donald Trump, which further explains the outrage that has followed.

John and Producer Steve finish off the show this week discussing the war on free speech in America from suppressing conservative speech online to constantly accusing Right-leaning thinkers and candidates of “racism” when it in fact doesn’t exist.

John’s quote of the week:
“The real core problem we’re having is the inability to dissent in whole or in part from some of the things that are being discussed, and to offer logical and reasonable arguments. What you get back is flack, ad hominem attacks, and clichéd attacks; that’s always the mark of a losing side.”

In this week’s Section 6, we celebrate Labor Day by airing a recent interview John did with Stand Up For the Truth with Mike LeMay on Q90FM in Wisconsin. John discusses the true goals of the progressive movement, the crisis in the Roman Catholic Church, and the future of the evangelical movement.
