Geo-Economic and Political Outlook

Login to access this full program.

Economics, politics, and religion are the three primary topics discussed on Steel on Steel. This week, we open the show with an extended conversation featuring all three topics. Joining John are David McAlvany and Kevin Orrick (www.mcalvanyweeklycommentary.com), co-hosts of the McAlvany Weekly Commentary, which you can find on our Steel Podcast Network.

They examine the economy possibility of another Cold War, this time with China, and how the global economy is affected by the U.S. election cycle. Marxism is now playing a greater role in global economics and politics. They also discuss Christianity’s threat to communism and relying on God during times of crises.

Finishing up the show this week, we welcome Dr. John Lott, Founder and President of the Crime Prevention Research Center (www.crimeresearch.org). He looks at several gun control myths and how the media misrepresent the facts surrounding shootings and completely ignore the ‘good guy with a gun saves the day’ stories. He also paints a picture as to what this country would look like should all guns be outlawed.

Dr. John Lott: Gun Control Myths

Login to access this full program.

 

In order to prove a myth false, you need facts on your side. On today’s podcast, we welcome Dr. John Lott, Founder and President of the Crime Prevention Research Center (www.crimeresearch.org), who discusses his new book on gun control myths. The greatest purveyor of these myths are the media, who misrepresent the facts surrounding shootings and completely ignore the ‘good guy with a gun saves the day’ stories.

Dr. Lott looks at whether the violence related to current rioting will affect the gun control debate. He also paints a picture as to what this country would look like should all guns be outlawed.

A lot of important topics this week on Steel so we are foregoing the boralogue and jumping right in with our first guest. Dr. Thomas Farr (www.religiousfreedominstitute.org), President of the Religious Freedom Institute, describes how the Equality Act is turning the First Amendment on its head by punishing people who hold traditional views on marriage and other issues. We should speak out and defend our rights and freedoms before it’s too late.

If TV crime dramas are to be believed, facial recognition software is quick, easy, and beneficial. But what’s the real story? Robert Bailey (www.reason.com), Science Correspondent at Reason.com, looks at the realities of facial rec and the potential for overreach and rights violations should the government get hold of it.

When it comes to the SATs, some scores are less equal than others. Rob Shimshock (www.campusreform.org), Correspondent Editor at Campus Reform, joins us to discuss the proposed adversity score for the SATs and how certain people groups are being disenfranchised because of it.

Christians are attacked in Palestinian Authority lands but no one seems to hear about it. Edy Cohen (www.besacenter.org), Researcher at the BESA Center in Israel, describes how Christians are persecuted in the West Bank and asks why Christians outside of the area are largely silent about it.

John finishes up this week looking at why politicians always seem to promote issues that never work, like gun control legislation. The problem is that they are focusing on the wrong things. If you don’t do what actually needs to be done to solve the problem, passing more legislation is not going to help.

John’s quote of the week:
The reason we have a right to privacy in this country is that government is not supposed to be trawling through the population trying to find crimes. You can’t live under that level of paranoia. It suppresses speech, it suppresses innovation, it suppresses religion – it suppresses freedom.

In this week’s Extras segment, we play John’s recent interview with Mike LeMay on Stand Up For The Truth on Q90FM in Green Bay, Wisconsin. John has a very interesting conversation about the nature of church and whether having a home church is a viable alternative. He tackles the tough questions like why is there a decline in church attendance, what is causing an increase in discrimination, and how dangerous is conforming to this world?
