Not the First Rodeo

Login to access this full program.

Building on last week’s boralogue, John looks at the current battles being waged in front of and behind the scenes to explain what we are seeing today. There are many revolutions, including the battle between freedom and Marxism, as well as fractures within both major political parties between those who want the status quo and those who advocate for massive change. These revolutions are playing out in our cities and on our televisions right now.

Terry TurchieThese riots and protests and revolutions are not this country’s first rodeo. Former FBI Counter-terrorism Assistant Director Terry Turchie (www.tkassociatesllc.com) joins us to examine anarchists of yesteryear, such as the Weather Underground, and compare them to the radicals we see today. For one political party, today’s platform is yesterday’s manifesto.

Brandon WeichertJust like oil and water, Communism and Christianity do not mix. Geopolitical analyst Brandon Weichert (www.weichertreport.com) is back with us to discuss how the Christian Church in China has become an increasing threat to the ruling power, and how that power is stifling speech and freedom by shuttering churches and persecuting believers.

Hijacking the Narrative

Login to access this full program.

If you are feeling angst this week amidst all the chaos, you’re not alone. In this week’s boralogue, John lays out the different levels surrounding the riots and protests. There are those who are fomenting division to further their narrative; power brokers who are funding the riots; and politicians who are taking advantage of it. We’re dealing with complex questions, but there’s a vested interest behind the scenes to quash the truth and hijack the narrative.

Victor Davis HansonWhile chaos and anarchy abounds, important information gets drowned out by media reports rife with falsehoods. Back by popular demand is Victor Davis Hanson (www.victorhanson.com), Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution. He discusses the roles of African-Americans as well as Antifa following the death of George Floyd, and looks at how the media is stoking the fires by its anti-Trump stories and false narratives.

Phil MagnessWe pivot to another hijacked narrative: school choice and how it’s supposedly tied to segregation. Phillip Magness (www.aier.org), Senior Research Fellow at the American Institute for Economic Research, debunks that narrative, recalling the true history of school choice and how modern day educrats are the ones trying to eliminate it.

Charles NegyFinally, we look at the base of operations for many hijacked narratives: the college campus. Charles Negy (www.ucf.edu), Professor of Psychology at the University of Central Florida joins us to discuss his new book on white shaming and show how fairness and equality of standards should be applied to everyone, not just the politically correct.

Hard Talks on Hard Times

Login to access this full program.

The government shutdown is seen as a political battle but it does point to several more pressing issues. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the future of the U.S. economy, the ineffectual nature of Congress, and the government problem of high taxation. These are important issues to discuss, but the mainstream media insists on perpetuating their own narrative, which deprives the public of accurate information.

American culture has served this country well for more than two centuries but it is always under attack and could eventually be destroyed. We replay an interview from 2010 that John had with Richard Lamm (www.du.edu/korbel/ipps), former Governor of Colorado, who listed the things he would do if he wanted to destroy America. Eight years later, we see these things playing out.

A one-world government has long been the plan for globalists and the UN, but do church leaders understand this? Ken Ortize (www.calvaryspokane.com), Lead Pastor at Calvary Spokane, joins us to give a pastor’s point of view on globalism and how those policies could fit with Biblical prophecy.

John and Producer Steve finish the program this week discussing the media’s malfeasance in two separate stories: one about supposed racism by Catholic high school boys and one about supposed impeachable offenses by President Trump. Both of these stories were almost completely false and caused such outrage for, as it turns out, no reason at all.

John’s quote of the week:
“Two worldviews are vying for control of this country: one that works, that’s the traditional one, and one that has been tried in many other places – the Soviet Union, Communist China – and it doesn’t work. Those are the two that are vying for control and the process is to undermine who we are and what we are.”

In this week’s Extras segment, we play an interview from October 2017 with Yuri Maltsev, who gives us the truth about socialism – their tactics and why it has never once succeeded.

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.

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.
