In this week’s boralogue, John diverts off-script and shares his personal history. He covers his childhood, his heritage, and his experiences among many cultures throughout his life. Here in America, we are a diverse society and that is a good thing. We have to work together, remember who we are, and focus on that rather than on the division in which we find ourselves today.

Mary GrabarAmerican history in academic textbooks has shifted from fact-based events to ideology-driven narratives. Mary Grabar (www.dissidentprof.com), Fellow at the Alexander Hamilton Institute for the Study of Western Civilization, discusses how Howard Zinn spearheaded the project to change history textbooks. His primer shows how America is a horrible, awful country whose only solution is to adopt socialism. That is being taught to our children right now.

John SikkemaCanada has slid a little further down the progressive lawfare cliff than the United States. John Sikkema (www.arpacanada.ca), Legal Counsel for the Association for Reformed Political Action in Ottawa describes how, thanks to politically correct ideology, legal terms like harassment and ‘hate crimes’ are being redefined in Canada. Formerly law-abiding citizens who happen to disagree with the preferred narrative are now becoming criminals.

Ofra BengioAfter the U.S. embassy attack in Baghdad a few weeks ago, questions have arisen as to what exactly is going on in Iraq. Ofra Bengio (www.dayan.org), Senior Fellow at the Moshe Dayan Center joins us from Tel Aviv to discuss the geopolitics of Iraq, including the status with Kurdistan, the struggle to establish a unified government, and interference from Iran.

John’s quote of the week:
FBI Director Christopher Ray wrote in a letter last week that he deeply regrets the Bureau’s many errors in the process of obtaining warrants on former Trump campaign advisor Carter Page. Isn’t that cute? He apologized. Try that in court sometime if you’re convicted. ‘Yes, your honor, I murdered that man. But I apologize.’ ‘OK, you’re free to go.’ It doesn’t work that way.

On this week’s extra segment, we crank up the Way-back machine, going back 18 years to March 2002 with Dr. Dennis Cuddy and Charlotte Iserbyt, discussing the problems with No Child Left Behind, including most ironically how most children were in fact left behind.

What’s True, What’s Going On, What Works

In any situation, including the recent Iraqi embassy attack and subsequent deadly drone strike, you have to ask yourself what is true and what is going on. In this week’s boralogue, John busts through some narratives and gives a backgrounder on the Middle East and the groups that have arisen from there. It sets the table for our next guest and gives you a clear and realistic picture of how we got to what happened last week.

Now that we know how we got here, we can look at the now former leader of Iran’s Quds Force, Qassem Soleimani, who was taken out with a drone strike last week. Back with us is Kenneth Timmerman (www.iran.org), President and CEO of the Foundation for Democracy in Iran, who describes the truth of who Soleimani was, what he was involved in, and where Iran goes from here.

Christopher RufoWhat happens when a radical progressive idea, seemingly outlandish, begins to gain traction in serious circles? Christopher Rufo (www.city-journal.org), Contributing Editor at City Journal, joins us to examine the Abolish the Police movement, showing that if it were ever to come to pass, crime and inequality would only deepen.

Education is the key to why we are so divided in America, but it is also being used to radically reform the country. Robert Steven Ingebo, (www.americanthinker.com) Akron, Ohio-based businessman, joins us to look at Deep Equity, a progressive-based reform program that relies heavily on buzzwords like intersectionality, diversity, and changing of norms. It’s the newest version of a formalized teaching system designed to transform our society.

John’s quote of the week:
Everything that you are hearing about the Middle East is being seen through the lens of the leftist media, these spinners of stories, to match their Western narratives, which are divorced from the reality of what’s happening on the ground.

On this week’s extra segment, we play a double feature. You might recognize our first interview (as we played it for you here last summer), but it’s still pertinent and deserves an encore presentation. James Hutchens from June 2012 is up first followed by Reza Kahlili from January 2015, both covering Iran.

It’s a new year so it’s time to reiterate what it is we actually do here at Steel on Steel. In the first boralogue of 2020, John reminds us that we take the 30,000-foot view of news and worldviews and analyze why people behave the way they do. Understanding human nature and the psychology of crowds, among other factors, will help to predict where we’re heading as a society. You can count on John to do that as we careen through a new year of chaos.

Timothy SnowballImpeachment mania has taken over Washington DC but many people still aren’t familiar with the mechanics and history of impeachment. Timothy Snowball (www.pacificlegal.org), Attorney with Pacific Legal Foundation, is back with us to examine the difference between impeachment and removal, how the process works, and whether or not it’s worth it politically.

How is it that someone can put such thought into studying things and get it so wrong all the time while others can think and debate and get it right? John takes a few moments to explain the deep and reliable foundations of a realistic and factual worldview base, using examples from today’s news cycle to illustrate his point.

Bruce HartmanThe country is divided and there is angst everywhere, perpetuated largely by the media on both ideological sides. Theologian and business expert Dr. Bruce Hartman (www.brucelhartman.com) joins us to show how we can only control what is within our ability to control and how faith in God can mitigate the fear and angst we feel every day.

John’s quote of the week:
So much ideology of today is faulty – it tries to violate the norms of human nature. They say, ‘If we can just legislate it and force it and shame it, we’ll all make it come about.’ But reality always becomes real and human nature does not change.

The Extras Segment is back and we are playing an interview with Dr. Dennis Cuddy from December 2015 where he gives examples of possible future terrorist attacks in America, and shows us how ill-prepared we are to deal with them. The reason for this lack of prediction is due in large part to the globalists’ plan to dumb down education.

Happy New Year, everyone!

Christine Douglass-WilliamsWe will forego the boralogue this week and jump right in with Christine Douglass-Williams (www.frontpagemag.com), Associate Editor at FrontPage Magazine, who describes her trip to the International Conference on Christian Persecution in Budapest, Hungary last month. She looks at Hungary’s efforts to establish itself as a Christian nation and examines the truth, not the PC narrative, surrounding Islam and the persecution of not only Christians, but also reformer Muslims.

Dexter Van ZileAnti-semitism exists in various subsets of society, including among famous people in the media. Dexter Van Zile (www.camera.org), Christian Media Analyst at CAMERA, reveals how one famous radio host has seemingly come out against Jewish concerns. He also discusses the various sources for anti-semitism, both on the right and the left.

Burt Yellin Roeh IsraelWe finish out the program this week playing a sermon given by Rabbi Burt Yellin of the Messianic Jewish church Roeh Israel (www.roehisrael.org) in Denver, Colorado earlier this month. He gives examples of leaders who have done great things but were also absolute scoundrels. He also shows the importance of answering God’s call in your life.

John’s quote of the week:
The real salvation in an age of postmodernism, when the lack of belief in truth has led to a lack of belief in the stability of all our systems and moral values, is always to stand on the truth. Remember ‘semper veritas’ – always the truth.

The Extras Segment is taking a two-week hiatus due to the holidays but it will return with perfect 2020 vision in the New Year!
