Social Justice

Have we learned anything by watching the news this summer? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at subjects the media and political candidates refuse to talk about, like the future of our economy, the tendency for politicians to raise taxes and regulate business, and the unpleasant choices we’re left with regarding fiscal policy. When those in power choose instead to focus on toxic narratives, we’re left with deadly consequences.

What is social justice and why is it important? We welcome back economist and author Pat Wood (www.technocracy.news) who discusses the history of social justice, redistribution of wealth, and technocracy as the science behind social engineering. When one group wants what another has, social justice becomes nothing more than legalized covetousness.

Social justice, if left unfettered, will likely result in socialism. Luis Fleischman (www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org), Senior Advisor at the Center for Security Policy, analyzes how socialism has affected Venezuela, where power for the elites has become an end unto itself and the people are the ones who suffer.

John’s quote of the week:
“Politicians will not get out of the way and lower the taxes and lower the regulations to get the small businesses going, to get the jobs going, to get to where we need to get going, going.”

We are taking a vacation this week for our intelligence briefing, Section 6, but John will return next week with analysis on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world.

Each and every one of us has the potential to influence the world for good. John gives us two examples of individuals in this week’s boralogue who decided to step out in faith and help those in need. The first, George Weidenfeld, escaped the Nazis during WWII when brave Christians spirited him away from danger. Today, at the age of 95, George is still repaying that generosity by helping persecuted Christians in the Middle East escape violent Islamism. And Katherine Locke, a retired nurse in her 70s, helped Kurdish Christians in Iraq during the time of Saddam Hussein. We can make a difference. What will our influence be?

A Pakistani Christian, who we’ll name Pastor X, has fled his home with his family to another country. Authorities in that country are threatening to deport them back to Pakistan where being a Christian is a dangerous way of life. John has begun raising funds to help this family complete citizenship paperwork and avoid persecution. If you would like to help, go to our homepage (www.steelonsteel.com) and click on the link to support Pastor X.

Throughout WWII and the Cold War, the Soviet Union activated several journalists as spies. Matthew Vadum (www.matthewvadum.com), Senior Editor at the Capital Research Center, shows that journalists made excellent spies due to their high-level contacts in business and government, and their ability to influence those decision makers. Today, the media have evolved into activist journalists who think of themselves as correspondents of the world with no loyalty to America.

Exerting an enormous amount of influence on Pope Francis is his scientific advisor, Hans Schellnhuber, a devout atheist. Rejoining us is Matt Briggs (www.wmbriggs.com), Author and Adjunct Professor of Statistics at Cornell University, who discusses the Pope’s latest encyclical, the largely false information contained it, and how Francis’s advisor is pushing for a one –world government with a global council, an earth constitution, and a world court.

Finally, we welcome back Luis Fleischman (www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org), Senior Advisor at the Center for Security Policy. He recalls the cover-up surrounding the death of prosecutor Alberto Nisman, who was investigating an Iranian terrorist attack in Argentina in the 1990s. He shows Argentina’s stand with Iran against perceived imperialism from the West, socialist collaboration between Cuba and Venezuela, and terrorist security threats to the U.S. found in tunnels underneath our borders.

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

What Is He Doing?

In this week’s abbreviated boralogue, John shies away from the unimportant questions being asked about President Obama – is he a Christian?, is he a communist? – and focuses more on the dynamics. Why has he turned his back on Israel? Where did our president’s ideologies come from?

This leads directly to our conversation with Dr. Paul Kengor, Ph.D., (www.visionandvalues.org), professor of political science at Grove City College in Pennsylvania. Professor Kengor delves into Barack Obama’s background and illuminates the Communist and Islamic mentors in the early life of our president, and how influential those experiences are to him today.

Building on this knowledge, John speaks with Avi Davis (www.americanfreedomalliance.org), President of the American Freedom Alliance. He examines the topic of moral equivalency in the wake of Obama’s comments comparing the Crusades with violent Islamic jihad at the National Prayer Breakfast recently.

Finally Professor Luis Fleischman (www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org) from Florida Atlantic University and Senior Advisor at the Center for Security Policy highlights South American issues including the current situation in post-Chavez Venezuela, as well as the death of Argentine prosecutor Alberto Nisman, and how Iran may be involved in both countries.

Our weekly intelligence news briefing, Section 6!Join us for our weekly Section 6 intelligence briefing, featuring commentary by John on important stories making news around the world. This week, John analyzes ethics and discusses the fallout following Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech to Congress this week.
