What can we learn from tragedies like the Florida shooting? The media will always play the same old gun control script, for one. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the arguments made by gun control advocates and points out their logical fallacies. Doing the same failing thing each time won’t work. We need to change the moral foundation of society, not do away with guns.

In the wake of the FISA scandal as well as the missed red flags in Florida, what is happening to our intelligence community? Clare Lopez (www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org), Vice President for Research at the Center for Security Policy – and a former CIA agent – discusses the lack of proper training within intelligence agencies and the willful blindness due to a PC worldview.

Can an American town enact an ordinance that stifles religious freedom? Mike LeMay (www.standupforthetruth.com), General Manager of Q90 FM radio near Green Bay, recounts how the city of De Pere, Wisconsin has done just that, potentially requiring churches to engage in practices against their religious beliefs. He and others are filing a lawsuit to stop it.

We welcome Paul Van Noy (www.candlelight.org), Pastor at Candlelight Fellowship in northern Idaho, who recounts his trip to Thailand to visit Pastor X, touring the immigration detention centers, and seeing firsthand how donation moneys are being spent.

After analyzing comments from economist Lawrence Kotlikoff, who discusses the reality of social spending debt and offers a possible solution to the problem, John chats with Dr. Myles Schneider (www.mylesofhealth.com), a foot and ankle doctor in Virginia, about alternatives to Obamacare popping up in some states and healthy solutions to lower costs.

John’s quote of the week:
“Foolish people double down on bad arguments and they implement double the number of bad ideas in law, which of course do nothing to make future situations safer and oftentimes make them worse while tangling other people up in the law of unintended consequences. This is called putting lipstick on a pig.

In this week’s Section 6, John and Producer Steve discuss the lead up to the school shooting in Florida. John then goes on to look at news from the Middle East including the U.S. and Israel on one side and Iran and Syria on the other. Some schools in the Middle East are teaching students to hate and become martyrs. John asks the hard questions no one else seems to want to pose.

Chasms

Don’t bring your politically correct narratives to a logic fight – you’re not going to win. In this week’s boralogue, John shows that the differences between what some believe and what is actually reality have widened into chasms. He exposes the logical fallacies behind several PC narratives reheated this week following the tragic shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon. On the other side of the divide, reality insists on being heard and will eventually win out. If we listen to these illogical narratives, we may find ourselves falling into the chasm.

The Obama administration is bringing in hundreds of thousands of mostly Muslim refugees, but is deporting groups of Christians back to Iraq. Joining us to expand on this is author and Middle East expert Raymond Ibrahim (www.raymondibrahim.com), who reveals the harsh political and religious climate for Christians in the Middle East, mainstream media’s lack of coverage on the issue, and the now true story of ISIS operatives setting up shop in Western countries.

The chasm is widening on many issues, including border security and immigration. For example, if Muslims migrate to the United States and refuse to assimilate into our culture, are we considered racists if we say it won’t work or are we just facing reality? Phyllis Chesler (www.phyllis-chesler.com), Emerita Professor of Psychology at City University of New York, examines these philosophical chasms by looking at Islamic ideology, anti-Semitism past and present, and how freedom of religion is in danger in America in the wake of Islamist immigration.

What happens when new politically correct laws begin trumping the established constitutional rights of freedom of religion and speech? Stephen Krason (www.franciscan.edu), Chair of the Political Science Department at Franciscan University of Steubenville in Ohio, discusses the inconsistencies in not only forming these new laws but also in enforcing them to different groups of people. We can fight back by saying, “I will not sit down. I will not shut up!”

This week, John dives into prophecy and sees if current events in the Middle East match up.

The Great Straddle

Now that the Pope has come and gone, what are people saying about his visit? Comments run the gamut from well thought out, cogent intelligence reports to wild, irrational sniping. In this week’s boralogue, John ties together journalistic ethics, Pope Francis’s seemingly contradictory comments, and bad decisions based on blood moon predictions. With geopolitical crises looming on our horizon, you will need accurate information from an intelligent source. Perhaps from a show that focuses on economics, politics, and religion, right? Wink, wink.

In an extended boralogue, John raises a red flag warning on an upcoming crisis in the bond market. He goes on to show relation versus position in regards to statements made by Pope Francis and explains that the Pope is straddling a chasm, with centuries of Church tradition on one side and an attempt to establish relationships on the other.

To follow up on the Pope’s visit and to discuss his great straddle, we welcome back to the program Susan Warner (www.israelolivetree.org), Co-Founder of Olive Tree Ministries. She examines the fallout from the UN sustainable development conference and shows that Agenda 2030, Pope Francis’s statements to difference groups, geopolitics in the Middle East, and the future of the United States are all connected.

When one right or law trumps another, which one do we obey? Frank Wolf (www.21wilberforce.org), former U.S. Congressman and Senior Fellow of the 21st Century Wilberforce Initiative, discusses the battle between religious freedom and the politically correct narrative of the day. The church is hunkering down, hoping the storm will pass. Moral decline has resulted, and with increased persecution imminent, the Christian church needs to speak out in favor of religious freedom before it’s too late.

Reversal of Realities

Will our freedoms erode on the altar of political correctness? How does Donald Trump fit into all of this? In this week’s boralogue, John examines stories from Denver to Quebec to Washington state of progressive elites quashing freedom of speech. For a half century, these same liberals advocated for the very freedoms they look to silence now. Americans are tired of it and Donald Trump, good candidate or not, has expressed this sentiment. It’s balderdash and we’re not going to tolerate it anymore!

Christians are persecuted daily around the world and we are finding it is up to us as individuals to do what we can to help. Joining us is Dr. Phyllis Chesler (www.phyllis-chesler.com), Emerita Professor of Psychology at City University of New York, who analyzes the failures of the international community to help these persecuted Christians and shows we are on course for a reversal of reality. Political correctness and bureaucracy are standing in the way of doing what is morally right. As a result, women and children are repeatedly assaulted, but thanks to civilian volunteers, some are getting much needed help. What can you do?

For the past few weeks, we have told you the story of Pakistani Christian Pastor X and his family. This week, he relates his experience fleeing persecution in his home country and thanks Steel on Steel listeners for their generosity. His desire is to pay that kindness forward by helping others.

With the now infamous Iran nuclear deal nearing approval in Congress, views within the Christian church are as diverse as the secular world. We welcome the founder of Olive Tree Ministries, Susan Warner (www.israelolivetree.org), who discusses the Pope and liberation theology, the peace and justice crowd, and how opinions within the Church, whether Protestant or Catholic, all boil down to how you feel toward Israel.

The Section 6 intelligence briefing is still on hiatus this week as we take some time off for the summer. It will return later in September.
