It seems human rights are back in the news after Alabama passed an abortion restriction law. In this week’s boralogue, John reminds us of past cases where new rights were established to suit an ideology. After Alabama passed their law, we are seeing the concept of what goes around comes around. Creating a right that ultimately forces someone else to violate their beliefs is totalitarian and an indicator of the new postmodern world we live in.

Potpourri week on Steel. First up, we speak with Shahram Hadian (www.tilproject.com), Founder of the Truth in Love Project, about the basics of Ramadan and why, during those 30 days, there is an uptick in violence and jihad.

Next up, we explore the Law of the Sea Treaty with Alex Newman (www.thenewamerican.com), Foreign Correspondent with The New American. If it is ratified, the UN would have independent taxing power under this law which is a frightening thought.

What is happening in the Middle East? We welcome David Rubin (www.shilohisraelchildren.org), Founder and President of the Shiloh Israel Children’s Fund, who discusses geopolitics in the Middle East including Iran’s nuclear program.

Finishing out the program this week, John takes a look at Brexit and the battle of worldviews in Europe and America. Producer Steve joins in later to discuss various political issues like President Trump’s tax returns, controversial comments by a member of the House, and potentially un-Constitutional legislation in California.

John’s quote of the week:
In Europe, they’re shutting people down by making it a crime to say certain things. Here in America, we name it and shame it, and it’s having an effect; it’s costing people. But here they can’t quite prohibit it, though social media is contributing to it.

In this week’s Extras segment, we play a Steel on Steel interview from July 2017 with Bill Warner. Since the month of Ramadan has begun in the Islamic faith, it is important we better understand aspects of Islam. Topics covered include the basics of Islam, how political correctness is willfully blinding us to certain realities, and how our freedoms in this country would disappear under sharia law.

Coup de Tehran

Is it possible to have a newsworthy protest without violence and the shouting down of opponents? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at a protest in Sacramento earlier this month where thousands of people rallied against a bill that would have hindered homeschool parents’ ability to teach their children. The protest was peaceful and stood in stark contrast to the violence of Antifa rallies. But unlike with Antifa, there was a virtual media blackout in Sacramento.

Plus, in our clip of the week, John analyzes President Trump’s remarks ending the so-called Iran Deal and the aftermath of those comments.

Leading up to President Trump’s decision to pull out of the Iran Deal, Israel pulled off a massive coup in Tehran. Ken Timmerman (www.iran.org), President and CEO of the Foundation for Democracy in Iran, looks at Mossad’s operation to steal thousands of documents proving Iran’s nuclear program is still active and discusses President Trump’s battle with globalist elites.

Continuing our series on the heckler’s veto, we welcome Chris Gaubatz (www.understandingthethreat.com), Executive Vice President at Understanding the Threat, who examines free speech versus sharia law and how civilization jihad is happening all around us while most of us are unaware of its existence.

Revenue to the government may be up, but spending is out of control. Steve Levine (www.axios.com), Future Editor at online news magazine Axios, shows how millennials will be paying long into the future for the economic misdeeds of today. If we’re going to solve the problem, we need to start talking about possible solutions as soon as possible.

Finally, we welcome Tammi Rossman-Benjamin (www.amchainitiative.org), Director of the AMCHA Initiative, who analyzes anti-Semitism on college campuses and points out the hypocrisy of people who praise tolerance and decry hatred, but who are nothing but intolerant and hateful.

John’s quote of the week:
Which group of people would you rather listen to: those who can present rational, quiet arguments for their position in a respectful way, or those who shout down with irrationality and unreason anyone who opposes them, chanting cheap clichés which say absolutely nothing? If you’re a sane person, the answer is pretty simple.

In this week’s Section 6, John and Producer Steve discuss the following: an ongoing effort to subvert the electoral college system in favor of the popular vote, the prospect of the U.S. becoming the world’s top exporter of oil, and an interesting twist in the Robert Mueller saga.

Granddaddy of All Terrorist Groups

Earlier this week, former NFL player and convicted murderer Aaron Hernandez committed suicide in prison. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at suicide from a Christian perspective, showing that we all need the right spiritual guideposts to get us through the rough spots. It’s up to us to fit into God’s plan for us, not the other way around. As long as we have Christ as our guide, we will be OK, no matter what obstacles stand in our way.

What is one thing that a majority of terrorist groups around the world have in common? Cynthia Farahat (www.cynthiafarahat.com), Writing Fellow at the Middle East Forum looks at the granddaddy of all terrorist organizations, the Muslim Brotherhood, who funds many other groups and is conducting a civilization jihad. She also explores historical connections between the Muslim Brotherhood and the Third Reich.

We have reported on the plight of Pakistani Christians for more than a year now. Joining us this week is Reverend James Luke (www.lcceast.ca) of the Lutheran Church Canada near Toronto, a Pakistani-born Christian who discusses his recent speech before the United Nations High Commissioner on Refugees and how some in Pakistan are fighting back against the country’s rigid blasphemy laws.

Tensions with North Korea have reached a fevered pitch in recent weeks. Author and American foreign policy expert, Dr. Anne Pierce (www.annerpierce.com) examines the Trump administration’s foreign policy reset to one of peace through strength, the dangers posed by North Korea and its dictator, and possible links with Iran’s nuclear program.

John’s quote of the week:
“If emotions are your guide, you will fail. If your heart is your guide, you will fail. The heart is irrevocably corrupt. If false idols and purposes are your reference points, you will fail. But if the Holy Spirit is your guide, no matter how bad the storm you will succeed and all pain will be turned to joy and a blessing for you.”

This week during our Section 6 Intelligence Briefing, John discusses Islamism in Chechnya, end-times indicators, and goes over recent listener emails.

Given all the evidence emerging after the shootings in Orlando, who should be held to blame for the massacre? The media would have you believe the answer is Christians. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at clear bias in media and leftist groups as the massive spin machine holds America in contempt – not ISIS or Islamic terrorism. Christians and conservatives are the guilty parties. For leftist elites, they’re in it to spin it, not to espouse the truth.

There’s a thin line between eliminating hate speech and suppressing free speech. Joshua Philipp (www.theepochtimes.com), Reporter for the Epoch Times, discusses how Facebook and Twitter continue to allow the promotion of terrorism on social media, but those who dare to expose terrorism with the truth have their accounts suspended. Traditional views of morality are changing which allow for policies like these to gain a foothold.

The Obama administration’s negotiation with Iran regarding their nuclear program is now being exposed as a package of secret side deals and lies fed to the American public. Meira Svirsky (www.clarionproject.org), Editor at the Clarion Project, examines the futility of snap back provisions in connection with European business as well as ineffective inspection policies thanks to a back room deal between Iran and the IAEA.

With talk of Islamic terror and the motivations behind the Orlando shooting, we welcome back to the program Daniel Akbari (www.stophonorkilling.com), attorney and expert on Islamic law to have an honest discussion regarding what the Koran and supporting documents actually say concerning sharia law and the difference between Muslims and Islamists.

John’s quote of the week:
“Expressions of support and sympathy from Christians and Christian churches which poured in (after the Orlando shootings) were rejected by the gay media because, of course, the Christians – not radical Islam – were responsible for this mess in the first place. Oh and by the way, if you believe in the Second Amendment, you might be responsible for it too.”

As always, join us online for our Section 6 intelligence briefing featuring analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world.
