John Loeffler

Steel on Steel is hosted by 50+ year broadcast veteran John Loeffler, whose commentary reflects independent insight into the driving forces behind contemporary issues from Washington politicians to Main Street. The Steel on Steel radio program is a weekly intelligence briefing dedicated to the sharpening of ideas, news, commentary, interview, information, and debate, much of which you will NOT hear elsewhere. Our goal and pledge is to put together 90+ minutes of solid news and analysis that the mainline media are ignoring by ignorance, bias, and/or neglect. The goal being to educate and equip today’s listener to discern the trends and connect the dots that most others miss.

Last year turned out to be a banner year for mainstream media misinformation. They seemed so sure of their stories when published, but when facts came out, very few if any admitted they were wrong. Leading off the show this week is Brandon Smith (alt-market.us), Founder of the Alternative Market Project. He looks back at media lowlights in 2021, including talking points like 'pandemic of the unvaccinated,' 'January 6 was an insurrection,' and 'alternative energies didn't cause Texas's winter grid collapse.' Headlines were in large fonts; corrections, if any, were but a tiny footnote.

Unaccountable media occurs not just in the U.S., but also in international press. Nowhere is this more evident than in coverage of Israel. Tamar Sternthal (camera.org), Director of CAMERA's Israel office, joins us this week to look at two stories the media got wrong in 2021. First, Israel was made out to be the aggressor toward Gaza when the facts show that Gaza attacked initially. The second story involved a professor with ties to Hamas promoted as a bridge builder when in reality he taught his students to hate Israel. Once again, neither publisher was held to much account.

Finally this week, we dive into the topic of digital vaccine passports with longtime friend of the show Pat Wood (citizensforfreespeech.org), Executive Director of Citizens for Free Speech and Editor of Technocracy News. He examines the globalist plan to track every human being on earth, using governments and private companies and organizations to get it done. This plan has been in place for decades and with technology finally in place, the globalists are on the cusp of realizing their dream. John notes that this dream looks suspiciously like one written in the Book of Revelation.

We have often mentioned the plight of Falun Gong practitioners in China, but now, one man has made it his mission to produce and direct a movie about the Falun Gong and their fight against the Chinese Communist Party. Joining us today to talk about his new movie, called Unsilenced, is the director Leon Lee (unsilencedmovie.com). He describes the constant hurdles he had to jump over during production, with actors quitting due to fear of CCP retaliation and numerous venues cancelling. He also discusses both the rise of Falun Gong and the subsequent crackdown by the CCP as well as his previous work exposing forced organ transplants in China.

The so-called vaccines haven't been out long enough to be thoroughly tested, but we're told they work and none of the adverse reactions are related. Joining us today is Rebecca Terrell (thenewamerican.com), Senior Editor at The New American magazine. She examines what she calls the biggest medical experiment in history, looking at the efficacy of medications and why previous drugs were pulled from the market for serious side effects, but not the vaccines. She also discusses medical statistics, adverse reactions, and even the global depopulation movement.

The JCPOA, known informally as the Iran Nuclear Deal, is close to being resurrected and there are many myths propagated by the media surrounding that deal that just aren't true. Joining us today is Sean Durns (camera.org), Senior Research Analyst in CAMERA's Washington DC office. He looks at some of these myths, including that Israel is on board with resurrecting the Deal and the Trump administration cozied up to hardliners in Tehran – both of which are false. The media glosses over the truth to promote narratives but the devil is always in the details.

We all know that the mainstream media has devolved into a propaganda machine for the Left. They have now been exposed promoting anti-Israel 'news.' Joining us today from Israel is Tamar Sternthal (camera.org), Director of CAMERA's Israel office. She gives examples of media malfeasance, including the promotion of Israel as aggressor against Gaza when Gaza was the attacker first; and a feature of a professor with ties to Hamas as being a bridge builder when, if you listen to his lectures in Arabic, he is the exact opposite, teaching his students to hate Israel. She and John also discuss the state of journalism today.

It seems the mainstream media has been a propaganda machine for some time now, but 2021 turned out to be a big year for lies. Back with us today is Brandon Smith (alt-market.us), Founder of the Alternative Market Project. He looks at some of the biggest media lies of 2021, including talking points like ‘pandemic of the unvaccinated,' ‘January 6 was an insurrection,' and ‘traditional energy caused the Texas winter power grid collapse.' He also looks at some issues we'll face this year and what lies to watch out for moving forward.

Conspiracies are Now Facts

Narratives are beginning to fail and what were once considered conspiracy theories by those in government and the media are now emerging as facts. First up this week, we look at our armed forces. Jay Richards (heritage.org), Research Fellow at the Heritage Foundation, joins us to examine the widespread rejection of religious exemptions for Covid shots in the military. Is there a hatred of religion or are they trying to purge politically incorrect men and women from our armed services? Whatever the case, our military members are fighting back in court. There is no Covid-19 exemption to the First Amendment.

Another failed narrative from the media is the insistence that January 6 was an insurrection. Even the FBI has rejected that. An independent journalist present at the U.S. Capitol a year ago recorded the event on his video camera. That journalist, Steve Baker (thepragmaticconstitutionalist.com), is with us this week. He recounts what he saw that day and how nine months later, federal authorities are charging him with a number of crimes. The purveyors of narrative never like it when anyone challenges them.

Finally, we travel north of the border to look at Canada and the failing narrative of diversity and inclusion – by those who practice neither. Rounding out the show this week is Christine Douglass-Williams (frontpagemag.com), Associate Editor at FrontPage Magazine. She recalls how a difference in ideological opinion surrounding the Israel-Palestinian issue almost got a woman kicked off a school board for “Islamophobic” comments. This points to a larger problem of condoning anti-semitism in the name of diversity and inclusion.

There is a plan behind the scenes both in our government and in the private sector to develop digital vaccine passports. Back with us to discuss is Pat Wood (citizensforfreespeech.org), Executive Director of Citizens for Free Speech and Editor of Technocracy News. He details the modus operandi of globalists who link together public and private entities in a plan to track every human being on earth. Huge billion dollar companies and organizations have been involved in doing this for years, and now they are on the cusp of realizing their dream. A dream that looks suspiciously like one written in the Book of Revelation.

An independent journalist present at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, recorded the event on his video camera. Now, he's being charged by the federal government with a number of crimes, not the least of which is racketeering. That journalist, Steve Baker (thepragmaticconstitutionalist.com), is with us today. He recounts what he saw just over a year ago and discusses what the government is doing to him now and why – they don't like what he has to say about January 6 nor his footage of that day. He also discusses those who have been incarcerated and held for the past year with no trial.

Russia is mounting troops on Ukraine's border and the U.S. may or may not be concerned about it, depending on the day. But one man has written a proposal to mediate the issue. Joining us today is the author of that proposal, David Pyne (emptaskforce.us), Deputy Director of National Operations for the EMP Task Force. He details his proposal, which contains what many may consider controversial solutions to the Russia-Ukraine conflict. Ultimately whatever proposal is out there should be to America's benefit strategically, and that's what his proposal tries to do, he asserts. He and John also talk about U.S. leaders refusing to harden our grid against EMP attacks and reducing our nuclear arsenal.
