Takes Two to Tangle

Every Steel on Steel show features the phrase “the herd’s almost always running in the wrong direction.” In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the need to separate from the herd and think for yourself. Always do what is right, even in times of trouble. Do not be led down the slippery slope of idealism that has firmly entrenched itself into our society. Doing what is right isn’t always easy but it is always needed.

It’s time for John’s annual rant against taxes and who better to rant with than tax expert and owner of Tax Help Online Dan Pilla (www.taxhelponline.com)? John and Dan discuss the tactics of auditors and how to fight back against them, as well as a new artificial intelligence program the IRS is using to better identify sources of income – which would raise even more money for the government.

The Middle East is complicated as is its relations with other areas of the world. Ken Timmerman (www.iran.org), President of the Foundation for Democracy in Iran, examines the geopolitics between Iran and Europe, the effectiveness of President Trump’s policies in the region, and the current situation with the Kurds and Syria.

Finally, John looks further at the Middle East, specifically the so-called Peace Process and the events of the past decade, including President Obama’s destabilizing actions and President Trump’s attempts to clean up the mess. There are important things happening, but the media will either falsely report on it or completely ignore it all together. To give you a clear picture, you need Steel on Steel.

John’s quote of the week:
“Anyone who succeeds and says, ‘I can do this and that and I don’t need to listen to you,’ that’s where the criticism gets vicious because it ruptures the dependency narrative and shows it to be false. That endangers the money flow, the ideology flow, and the political flow.”
