There are rules for thee, but not for me. Seems to be the woke battle cry today. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the outrage against people and companies for thoughts and policies that were completely reasonable five minutes ago. He breaks down several logical fallacies wrapped up in progressive narratives. When words are weaponized in pursuit of those narratives, truth becomes a casualty.

Joining John in the studio is his wife, Carol, a homeschool and tutoring pro, along with Rachael Grant, who has homeschooled her kids for the last nine years. All three discuss the realities of teaching your children at home, the difference between homeschooling and public schooling at home, and the importance of a values-based curriculum.

Ginny GentlesWe then welcome Ginny Gentles (www.iwf.org), Visiting Fellow at the Independent Women’s Forum, who discusses how educational funding in the time of virus lockdowns should follow the child, and one way to do that is through educational savings accounts.

Finally this week, Twila Brase (www.cchfreedom.org), President and Co-Founder of Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom, joins us to examine the potential realities of contact tracing and the broad redefinition of the term ‘case’ which has led to a skyrocketing – and possibly misleading – number of new coronavirus ‘cases.’

Quo Vadis Education: Where Is It Going?

The coronavirus caused nationwide lock-downs and closures and one of the hardest hit sectors was education. Joining John in the studio today is his wife, Carol, who is an education expert and former homeschool teacher and Rachael Grant, who has homeschooled her kids for the last nine years. They discuss the difference between homeschooling your children and learning via the public school at home – two very different situations. The most important factor in how to educate your children is what is contained in the curriculum.

Greek Tragedy

Login to access this full program.


150028 07/11/2015

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.

Our weekly intelligence news briefing, Section 6!As always, join us online for our weekly Section 6 intelligence briefing, featuring analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world. This week, John discusses several recent Supreme Court decisions and their impact.

Education’s Core Problem

We’re under attack from the “comma buts.” Welcome to Steel on Steel. In John’s boralogue this week, he exposes the hypocrisy of the politically correct elites and their views on free speech. “Freedom of speech is OK – comma but – only if you think the way we do.” We should have the right to express beliefs and ideas that our opponents may find controversial. This PC think is a deadly virus and it’s time we begin quarantining it. I will not sit down. I will not shut up!

The burning alive of the Jordanian pilot by ISIS has dominated the news in the past week. We welcome to the program Dr. Stephen Kirby (www.islamseries.org), retired Los Angeles Police Department investigator, who explores the history of Islam, recounting events and examining Islamic principles as it relates to the burning alive of apostate Muslims and non-Muslims.

Dr. Grazie Pozo Christie (www.thecatholicassociation.org), a diagnostic radiologist in Miami, Florida, discusses free speech and the case of Kelvin Cochran, former Fire Chief of the Atlanta Fire Department, who was fired after his self-published book advocated traditional Biblical marriage between a man and a woman.

Rounding out the program this week, Anita Hoge (abcsofdumbdown.blogspot.com), national speaker and educational consultant and researcher, examines the history of education in America, Common Core, and the dangers of collecting personally identifiable information on children.

Our weekly intelligence news briefing, Section 6!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.

Toward a Militarized Police State – Part IV

Login to access this full program.


130036 09/07/2013

Today’s program is the last in our summer thread, “Toward a Militarized Police State.”

John’s boralogue follows last week’s program on the Common Core educational curriculum with an examination of what junior high students knew 100 years ago versus how poorly they’re doing today on far less challenging subjects.

Then columnist James Simpson joins us for an eye-opening revelation of exactly how SWAT teams are being used nowadays. A SWAT raid in Texas a couple of weeks ago on a 3.5 acre community garden yielded nothing but vegetables; not the marijuana they were supposed to find. Even so innocent men and women were handcuffed at gunpoint for long hours.

Mark Nestmann from the Nestmann Group (www.assetprotection2013.com) follows in the next segment. Historically as governments and their central banks approach the end of their inflation game, they inevitably flop around searching for assets to seize from their citizens, which means an imposition of draconian laws plus a demonization of the classes from whom they intend to “attach” money or property. Mark outlines how this process is going on throughout countries in the west that are in trouble financially.

Finally we’ll round out the entire militarization series conversing with Dan Wilson, who’s a law enforcement officer and a long-time listener to the program.
