John is taking a well-deserved day off after a long road trip, so Producer Steve takes over the microphone today – yes, John will be back! What do calling everything racist and forced mandates have in common? Steve looks at what the progressives are really saying when they claim things are racist and what elites are really telling all of us when they force mandates on us. Hint: it's not a flattering message. And because it's not flattering, they get the media outlets to gaslight us into believing it's true. We can – and must – fight against it.

Battlefronts

There are multiple battlefronts happening in the world today, both in the physical sense and ideologically. We open today's show looking at a physical battlefront, with John tackling the latest on the Ukraine-Russia conflict. He incorporates a lot of principles covered on Steel on Steel over the last few decades into what we're seeing today, including how reality becomes real, the value of international guarantees is not high, and never elect someone to get you out of situation who got you into it in the first place. There are many lessons to be learned watching the physical battlefront in Ukraine, but that can also be applied to the ideological field.

And, like fighting in the physical world, with ideological enemies, it's important to understand both how your enemy thinks and how best to arm yourself on the battlefront of ideas. Joining the show this week is freelance writer Selwyn Duke (selywnduke.com), who looks at the nature of morality and where both ideological sides are coming from. Each side says their morality is best, so you have to anchor yourself in the truth in order to move forward intelligently. And as far as battle plans are concerned, adopting the Left's Alinsky tactics may just work in our favor.

Finishing off the program this week, John gives his thoughts on a variety of topics, including education reform, competing narratives, the need for nuanced information instead of package deals, and how insane it is that leftists consider hiring someone based on skin color rather than qualifications.

Lots of rumbling in Washington DC and around the country about the future of Kamala Harris in the White House: will she assume the presidency when President Biden can no longer do the job or will she be summarily let go?  We don't normally traffic in speculation, but for today, we are breaking out the crystal ball.  Back with us to gaze into it and give his outlook is writer and retired entrepreneur Bob Adelmann (thenewamerican.com).  He discusses a few theories, but also looks at the geopolitical, economic, and mandate issues surrounding us as we trudge through a weak and unstable leadership in America.

School boards are declaring that they know best for your child. The FBI has been weaponized to go after parents who speak up as if they were terrorists. What can parents do? Back with us today is Nicole Neily (defendinged.org), Founder and President of Parents Defending Education. She and John look at how brazen school boards and teachers' unions have been and how it has galvanized parents to stand up for their rights. They discuss ways parents can fight back and protect their children from the educrat tyranny in today's schools.

It's important to make sense of the turmoil we see in the news and in society. And no one does it better than fan favorite Victor Davis Hanson (victorhanson.com), Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution. He looks at the globalists' plan to destroy national citizenry and replace it with a global community. Does the definition of ‘citizen' even matter anymore when migrants flood across the border and aren't made to take a Covid vaccine, but American citizens are forced to, often at the cost of their jobs? The turmoil depicted in the news and seen in society is largely without logic and reason, and because of that, the ‘national citizen' is waking up and fighting back.

America's enemies are hard at work around the globe – what are we doing to beef up our defenses? Not much, as it turns out. Joining us this week is David Pyne (emptaskforce.us), Deputy Director of National Operations for the EMP Task Force on National and Homeland Security. He points out that the U.S. has not kept pace with Russia and China since the end of the Cold War as far as nuclear capabilities and EMP weapons. We haven't even hardened our grid against EMP attack. Why, despite multiple warnings, are our government and our military focusing on trivial issues and not on defense?

We've seen plenty of examples showing how green energy, beneficial as it may be, is not ready for prime time. Is Great Britain getting that message? Rounding out the show this week from the UK is Dr. John Constable (thegwpf.com), Energy Editor for the Global Warming Policy Foundation. He explains how the UK's climate policy over the past few years focused on the short term at the expense of the long term. Political correctness, media coverage, and other non-climate-related issues are influencing that policy. It's OK to have a climate policy, but it has to be based on logic and reason. Right now it isn't.

Victor Davis Hanson: The Dying Citizen

What does it mean to be a citizen?  We all know traditionally what the answer is, but with globalism rearing its ugly head, the definition may well have become meaningless.  Back with us today by popular demand is Victor Davis Hanson (victorhanson.com), Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution.  He explains the globalists' motives in destroying national citizenry in favor of a global one, making sense of the turmoil we see in the news and in society.  But the national citizenry is pushing back.  He even discusses whether or not those in the Biden administration understand that their actions are creating chaos or if they are completely incompetent.  Fascinating conversation with the great Victor Davis Hanson!

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.

Truth 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.

Why 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."

In 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.
