John opens the show this week with a brief comment on how our Constitution is working exactly as it was meant to work. And in doing so, it is stymieing the plans of the Left, which is why you see the constant attacks on the Constitution.
We then transition to our first topic: abortion. Abortion is in the spotlight due to the recent Dobbs decision, but how is the Church dealing with it? We welcome Dr. David J. Ayers (faithandfreedom.com), Fellow for Marriage and Family at the Institute for Faith and Freedom. He looks at how the church has taught about abortion historically and how they deal with women who suffer from the aftereffects of it. He relays his own experiences in how the Church has handled the issue of abortion.
When we discuss the topic of totalitarianism, both in the past and happening now, it's important to take a step back and study what exactly totalitarianism is. Helping us do that this week is literature and history teacher Walker Larson (thehazelnut.substack.com). He describes the different stages of totalitarianism, based on what we've seen in history, and shows some pretty shocking similarities to society today. If you want to understand how raging at the Constitution can lead to tyranny, this is the interview to listen to.
Finally, we look at a blatant power grab on the globalist stage. The World Health Organization has been horrible when it comes to accurate medical information, but they are maneuvering for more power. Rounding out the show this week is Alex Newman (thenewamerican.com), CEO of Liberty Sentinel Media and Senior Editor at The New American magazine. He describes how the United Nations is attempting to give the WHO powers to declare pandemic emergencies in any country regardless of whether that country gives consent or not.
The topic of abortion has been thrust back into the spotlight after the recent Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade. But the topic of abortion in the Church has always been a difficult one. Joining us today to chat about it is Dr. David J. Ayers (faithandfreedom.com), Fellow for Marriage and Family at the Institute for Faith and Freedom. He and John tackle the question of how the church should teach about abortion. More women than you think in the church have had an abortion and most of them are afraid to mention it. Dr. Ayers relays his experience compassionately discussing the issue in the classroom and at church.
The rapid rise of the globalist new world order and the rapid disrobing of the metaphorical emperor has awoken people from their slumber. All the cards are now on the table. Joining us today is Christopher Bedford (rightforge.com), Chief Communications Officer at RightForge. He describes how the globalists are using the current crises to accelerate their Great Reset plans and, as a result, more and more people are waking up to what's going on. Relationships – like with school board members for example – are suddenly more important. It will be a battle between the resetters and the reformers as we race into an unknown future.
Yesterday we brought you part 1 of our 2-part interview with Peter Hammond (frontlinemissionsa.org), Founder and Director of Frontline Fellowship in South Africa. He gave a sober evaluation, based on direct observation, of the life of Archbishop Desmond Tutu. On today's podcast, he continues with some personal interactions he had over the years with the Archbishop. He goes on to look at worldview wars, the importance of campaigning for the truth, and his optimism about the future.
On this day before Thanksgiving, John flies solo and takes a look at the truth underlying the concept of thanksgiving. All of us experience times of trouble and sometimes it may seem like an impossible mission to come out from under that trouble. But God is with us and chances are He has blessed your life in many ways. John gives examples of both trouble and blessing from his own life. So please don't let vaccine disagreements or political differences come between you and family and friends this Thanksgiving. We can be thankful to God no matter what trouble we're experiencing because nothing is impossible with God.
Happy Thanksgiving, folks. May it be a safe and blessed holiday for you. We will be off tomorrow, but back in the Steel on Steel saddle on Friday.
Vaccine mandates, disastrous Afghanistan pullout, narrative spin by the media – it's enough to make one crazy. On today's podcast, John and Steve look at a variety of topics including the Texas abortion ban bill, whether the vaccines work or not, vaccine mandates, and the uncertainty around covid messaging. Narrative seems to rule over truth. With all the confusion surrounding narratives and messaging and science report wars and constant angst, there is something positive to focus on – faith in Christ. It orients you and offers hope, stability, and a never-changing message in a chaotic world.
It's a new year so it's time to reiterate what it is we actually do here at Steel on Steel. In the first boralogue of 2020, John reminds us that we take the 30,000-foot view of news and worldviews and analyze why people behave the way they do. Understanding human nature and the psychology of crowds, among other factors, will help to predict where we're heading as a society. You can count on John to do that as we careen through a new year of chaos.
Impeachment mania has taken over Washington DC but many people still aren’t familiar with the mechanics and history of impeachment. Timothy Snowball (www.pacificlegal.org), Attorney with Pacific Legal Foundation, is back with us to examine the difference between impeachment and removal, how the process works, and whether or not it's worth it politically.
How is it that someone can put such thought into studying things and get it so wrong all the time while others can think and debate and get it right? John takes a few moments to explain the deep and reliable foundations of a realistic and factual worldview base, using examples from today's news cycle to illustrate his point.
The country is divided and there is angst everywhere, perpetuated largely by the media on both ideological sides. Theologian and business expert Dr. Bruce Hartman (www.brucelhartman.com) joins us to show how we can only control what is within our ability to control and how faith in God can mitigate the fear and angst we feel every day.
John's quote of the week:
"So much ideology of today is faulty – it tries to violate the norms of human nature. They say, 'If we can just legislate it and force it and shame it, we'll all make it come about.' But reality always becomes real and human nature does not change."
The Extras Segment is back and we are playing an interview with Dr. Dennis Cuddy from December 2015 where he gives examples of possible future terrorist attacks in America, and shows us how ill-prepared we are to deal with them. The reason for this lack of prediction is due in large part to the globalists' plan to dumb down education.
