Freedom is not free. It is a fluke of history. And it must be maintained at all costs. In this week’s boralogue, John shows how our Constitution protects our freedoms by restraining government. The Supreme Court just handed down a ruling against civil asset forfeiture, thankfully upholding freedom and protecting citizens from unjust search and seizure. Where power and money goes, trouble grows.

MIke LeMayBrandon HolthausSteven GrantThe worldview battle in the West is beginning to affect the Church. Joining us to discuss this are Pastor Steven Grant (www.godsdestiny.com), Senior Pastor of Destiny Christian Center in Colorado, Pastor Brandon Holthaus (www.rockharborchurch.net), Senior Pastor of Rock Harbor Church in California, and Mike LeMay, retired General Manager of Q90FM in Wisconsin and former host of Stand Up For The Truth.

Topics on the roundtable agenda this week: preparing the church for the worldview battle to come, unbiblical messages infiltrating the church as a whole as well as the pulpit specifically, and the need for a group of pastors to pray and encourage one another in these times of trouble in the Church.

Andrew LangerHealthcare and insurance are touchy subjects lately and one of the most important topics in the presidential race. Andrew Langer (www.instituteforliberty.org), President of the Institute for Liberty, joins us to discuss the impossibility of price controls and free, free, free stuff for everyone. He also offers solutions to the problem of high prices.

John finishes off the program this week with several stories, including inflation in Venezuela, the history of Marxism in Zimbabwe, and media falsehoods surrounding Israeli settlements in the West Bank.

John’s quote of the week:
The whole idea of rights and freedom is to act as a restriction on government. It’s not anti-government. Our founders recognized that we needed government. But they also recognized that unrestrained power and the mischief that is innate in mankind will also produce tyranny. So the power had to be restrained and divided up so that it could be controlled and accountable.

There is no Extras segment for this week due to the Thanksgiving holiday. We will return next week. Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving!

What Shouldn’t Be, Seems To Be

Bad is good, good is bad, dark is light, light is dark, bitter is sweet, and sweet is bitter. In this week’s extended boralogue, John highlights speeches from Attorney General Bill Barr, City Journal Editor Myron Magnet, and Queen Elizabeth II of England. From these speeches, we learn that the world is being turned upside down in pursuit of a narrative. Listen to AG Barr’s full speech: 

Morals and ethics are now considered to be radical positions. Precepts in the Constitution are ignored in favor of liberal definitions. If an outcome of an election doesn’t go their way, progressive elites will obstruct, even though had the election gone the other way, they would have spoken out against obstruction. There is no consistency when you don’t have a solid foundation to stand on.

Stand up for the TruthTruth is at times being doubted in the church and that is leading to a corruption of the faith. We welcome back Mike LeMay (www.standupforthetruth.com), General Manager of Q90FM Radio in Wisconsin to examine how an upside down society is adversely affecting the church. He also recognizes that Christian persecution is coming, but we need to fight it every step of the way.

Dr. Michael RectenwaldWhy would wealthy corporations who have benefited under capitalism advocate for socialism? Author and speaker Michael Rectenwald (www.michaelrectenwald.com) is back with us to answer that question and discuss his new book, The Google Archipelago. He goes on to explain why he stepped away from the liberal mindset after his colleagues turned on him.

John’s quote of the week:
The social justice that’s now being pushed into the Bible churches is simply a repackaging of Marxist ideas covered over with something that looks evangelical. A lot of the material sounds good and church leaders fall for it. They fall for it because they don’t understand the worldview changes that are underway.

Jenna EllisIn this week’s Extras segment, we give John a break and play a speech (that he attended) given in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho this week by Constitutional Law Attorney, Trump 2020 Legal Analyst and Conservative Commentator on Fox News, Jenna Ellis (@JennaEllisEsq). She covers a variety of topics including Constitutional originality and impeachment.

Less Equal

Login to access this full program.

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?

Historic Readback

Login to access this full program.

John is speaking this weekend in Missouri so we will forego the boralogue and jump right into the show with Dr. Allen Guelzo (www.gettysburg.edu), Professor of Civil War Studies at Gettysburg College. He details the slavery debate during the Constitutional Convention, refutes the common three-fifths of a person myth, and asserts that upholding the First Amendment is more than just preserving a document; it’s about preserving humanity.

The woke movement is in full swing among far left progressives, but what is this movement? Author and speaker Dr. Michael Rectenwald (www.michaelrectenwald.com) is back with us to describe the origins of the woke movement and its eerie similarities to the Chinese Cultural Revolution under Mao and shows how socialism is infiltrating our society through social media.

John’s quote of the week:
These issues, whether it’s Alinsky or the Frankfurt School or the Woke Movement, the whole purpose is designed to destroy the existing structure. President Obama said ‘radical transformation,’ so then you have to ask ‘what are we transforming to?‘”

In this week’s Extras segment, we play an interview John gave on Q90FM in Wisconsin with Mike LeMay on the program Stand Up For The Truth. They discuss liberal institutions, inconsistencies with far left progressive thinking, and how the definitions of words and phrases have been changed to fit specific narratives.

What’s the difference between a hypocrite and one who fails to live up to his or her own standards? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the cover-up in the Catholic Church and how scandal and major changes seem to happen in the Church every 500 years. There’s a failure to take ownership of the sin and though an issue may be fixed, the cause of that issue remains.

America hasn’t had slavery for 150 years but it does still exist in other parts of the world. Charles Jacobs (www.peaceandtolerance.org), President of Americans for Peace and Tolerance, shows where slavery thrives today and why human rights organizations in the West are silent about it.

What happens when Mahmoud Abbas rejects whatever solution to the peace process the Trump administration proposes? Ariel Ben Solomon (www.jns.org), Deputy Online Editor at Jewish News Syndicate and a resident of Israel, describes the philosophy of Hamas when it comes to dealing with the West and how Western solutions may not work in the Middle East.

America is awful and racist and was founded on horrible precepts, so says liberal academia and modern leftists. John Zmirak (www.stream.org), Senior Editor at The Stream, shows how this progressive mindset was fractured with the election of Donald Trump, which further explains the outrage that has followed.

John and Producer Steve finish off the show this week discussing the war on free speech in America from suppressing conservative speech online to constantly accusing Right-leaning thinkers and candidates of “racism” when it in fact doesn’t exist.

John’s quote of the week:
“The real core problem we’re having is the inability to dissent in whole or in part from some of the things that are being discussed, and to offer logical and reasonable arguments. What you get back is flack, ad hominem attacks, and clichéd attacks; that’s always the mark of a losing side.”

In this week’s Section 6, we celebrate Labor Day by airing a recent interview John did with Stand Up For the Truth with Mike LeMay on Q90FM in Wisconsin. John discusses the true goals of the progressive movement, the crisis in the Roman Catholic Church, and the future of the evangelical movement.
