Virtually all government agencies are bogged down with myriad regulations and reform is needed. In this week’s boralogue, John points out that despite dumping mining waste chemicals into Colorado’s Animas River, the EPA continues their quest to control all water in the United States, regardless of homeowners’ property rights. Accountability is needed, demonization of average citizens should cease, and justice should be administered fairly. American citizens should not be looked at as the enemy. Our rights are slowly eroding away, and when they vanish, it will be quite some time before we get them back.

We continue our thread this week on the thoughts and actions of Pope Francis with a roundtable discussion on papal advisor Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Madariaga. Rejoining the program are John Zmirak (www.saveourcentury.com), senior editor at TheStream.org, and Jorge Velarde Rosso (www.acton.org), senior researcher at the Acton Institute in Argentina. Cardinal Madariaga has gone on record with anti-Semitic beliefs, accusing Jews of conspiracies against the church, and has advised the Pope that big government can solve the problems of the world that capitalism failed to. With the Pope speaking to the U.N. General Assembly in late September, will the concept of sustainable development take hold and attempt to establish a one world government?

In the early 21st century, the West associates yoga with posture, flexibility, and exercise. Michael Austin (www.publishthegoodnews.com), founder of the Christian communications ministry Publish the Good News, and a former yoga teacher, examines the history and function of yoga from its religious role in Hinduism to its completely different Westernized version. Is it harmless or a plan to introduce pantheism to a Christian nation?

The United States dropped two atomic bombs on Japan 70 years ago this month. Retired MIT Physics Professor Hale Bradt (www.wilburswar.com), is author of the Wilbur’s War trilogy, a tale of the Pacific Theater during WWII culled from letters written by his father, a U.S. soldier. He discusses the moral controversy of dropping the bombs and contends that in doing so, we may have prevented a far great number of casualties that would have died during the invasion of Japan.

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.
