John guests today on Tom Read's program 'It Seems to Me,' which is heard on the American Christian Network. They discuss John's career in radio and how it has spanned the changes in broadcast news, which have occurred over the decades and where that has left us today. Please remember to pray for the persecuted church and join us on Facebook at Praying for Persecuted Christians.
All good things must come to an end. After nearly 32 years on the air, this week marks the final radio broadcast of the Steel on Steel program. John kicks off the show by pulling together all we've learned in three decades about how the world works, how we got to where we are today, and where we can expect to head in the future. He leaves a lasting legacy to you, our loyal listeners.
To help John make sense of the changes in America over the last 30 years, he welcomes one of the show's earliest friends, Rabbi Burt Yellin of Messianic Congregation Roeh Israel in Denver, Colorado (roehisrael.org). Past mistakes are coming home to roost and those in power now haven't learned from them because they're proposing the same failed solutions today.
John finishes out the show with one more review, documenting the fellow travelers on the globalist train over the last century and how it affects us today. He then says goodbye to you, the listener.
On behalf of John; his incredible wife Carol who has been the glue that holds us all together; Brad, who solves every problem that comes across his path and keeps us relevant online; Producer Steve, who has had the privilege of occasionally joining John on the microphone for the last quarter of the show's tenure; and from everyone else involved in the show – thanks to all of you for your prayers, your kindness, and your loyalty over the years!
Today's program continues the thread of how we got here in a divided country and where we're going. Carol Loeffler returns to the program to pick up the economic thread from last week and John parallels that over the last century with a trace of all the 'fellow travelers' including theosophists, secular humanists, cultural Marxists such as the Frankfurt School, globalists and one-worlders, who have sought to "transform" our cultural from rugged individualist, free market capitalist economy to a globally oriented socialist state-run technocracy.
Today’s show revolves around our monthly geopolitical and persecution report for KYMS radio (todayschristiancountry.com) with Lee Lancaster hosting John. John gives an update on the situation with Pastor X and details how he and his family made their exodus from Pakistan to the United States. He also reveals the plight of Christians in Pakistan and explains some of the specific struggles they face there.

What have we learned in 30+ years of a daily talk show called, Steel on Steel? With an eye to the future, John does an extended boralogue reviewing all the rules we have established for interpreting what politicians say, include the Three Rules of a Bureaucracy, the Four Questions to ask when a politician says something, How to Detect the Single Standard under a Double Standard and others.
On June 11, here in North Idaho, a group of alleged white supremacists were arrested at an LGBTQ pride event. Was this a false flag event meant to further a hate narrative or was it the real thing? Back with us today is William Jasper (thenewamerican.com), Senior Editor at The New American Magazine. He describes what happened in Idaho and how, in his view, it was similar to January 6 and Charlottesville as far as being a false flag event. It sounds like a conspiracy theory, but so many of those keep coming true, you just never know.
It's time for John's monthly foray in the interviewee chair as he joins Lee Lancaster at the KYMS studios. John and Lee discuss high gas prices and the false messaging surrounding it as well as the faltering worldwide economy. They examine how geopolitical events like these affect the martyred church around the world. John reports on persecuted Christians in Pakistan and Nigeria and points out that freedom in this country is not the norm of history – unfortunately slavery and persecution is.
An evangelical pastor from Texas was recently a featured speaker at a conference sponsored by two Islamist organizations. His appearance has raised a few questions. Back with us today to answer those questions is Dexter Van Zile (meforum.org), now Managing Editor at the Middle East Forum. He and John discuss the differences between Islamic adherents and Islamists as well as how some evangelical leaders have begun to ingratiate themselves toward a group that wants no compromise whatsoever. They also look at the strange bedfellows of Islamists and far leftists – two groups who share anti-American sentiment but really can't stand each other.
If narratives coming out of the media seem wildly inconsistent and are flopping around, there's a reason for that. John opens the show this week looking at the outrage and "flippage" seen in stories about both gun control following recent shootings and Nancy Pelosi being denied communion because of her stance on abortion. The media pound away at a narrative, bury facts, and distort the truth in order to shape public perception on a story. That erosion of truth infects people's minds and that's reflected at the polls. It's dangerous to the freedoms that are the foundation of our country.
Another example of the media distorting the truth to advance a narrative can be found in a story about a riot at a funeral in Israel. An Al Jazeera journalist was killed covering a story and at her funeral, violence broke out. Joining us to discuss is Tamar Sternthal (camera.org), Director of the Israel office of CAMERA. She highlights how different press agencies immediately pointed the finger at Israeli troops as the cause for the violence, purposefully overlooking Palestinian instigation – just to bash Israel.
Finally this week, we look at the declining state of public education in this country. Joining us is Dr. Diane Davis (oneroomschooltraining.com), founder of the One-Room Schoolhouse method of teaching. She describes the benefits of parents taking charge of their child's education and the advantages of teaching in a small classroom. If children can learn how to think, not what to think, perhaps public perception will not be influenced by the erosion of truth and the future of our country can be saved.
It's time for John's monthly foray into the guest chair as he chats with Lee Lancaster at KYMS radio. John and Lee discuss the Texas school shooting and related to that, the diminishing presence of morality in the schools and the insistence on gun control laws every time a shooting occurs. They also touched on the latest globalist shindig in Davos, the failure of climate change thinking, and the endgame of our currency. John also asks for prayer for the persecuted church, especially in the countries of Nigeria, Indonesia, China, and Egypt.
