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.

It's a holiday week, we're anticipating Thanksgiving, and things usually slow down this time of year. But there is plenty going on around the world. Back with us today to talk geopolitics is Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson. He looks at Russia's talks with UAE regarding military aircraft and how that could signify a shift away from relations with Iran. He discusses Russia's buildup near Ukraine, the migrant situation on the border of Poland and Belarus, and covid vaccine misinformation around the world. He also comments on the Chinese tennis star who may have been disappeared for accusing a former member of the CCP of assault.

Klaus Schwab, founder of the World Economic Forum, convened a meeting this month to create the Great Narrative. He said it, "will be a powerful catalyst to shape the contours of a more prosperous and inclusive future for humanity." Joining us to analyze this is Pat Wood (technocracy.news), President of Citizens for Free Speech and founder of Technocracy News. He looks not only at the Great Narrative, but also at the new globalist definition of biodiversity – one that includes mapping the genetic makeup of all species, including humans, on earth. He calls it scientific humanism. For the globalists, it's more shaping of the contours of humanity's future.

Karl Marx's ideology has influenced communism and the global elite's plans for nearly a century. How did we go from Marx to CRT? To answer that, we welcome back investigative journalist James Simpson (crisisnow.net). He discusses how Marxism has infiltrated the West, attempting to divide and subvert our culture. CRT and white privilege are just the modern day mechanisms they use to accomplish their plans. He shares some ideas on how to fight against these efforts. John then looks briefly at the Book of Revelation, today's globalist push, and whether we are in the End Times.

Wrapping up the show this week, we step back and look at the past year since the 2020 election and the attempts to determine if there was fraud. Joining us is Annalisa Pesek (thenewamerican.com), writer and editor at the New American Magazine. She examines the Maricopa County audit results and the push for election reform – against the wishes of some officials and mainstream media pundits. But some folks are waking up to the need for reform. As John says, if there's nothing to hide, why try so hard to hide nothing?

When the Taliban took over control of Afghanistan, there were some Afghan women who did not feel safe in their own country.  One woman is spearheading efforts to help get them out.  That woman, best-selling author and feminist leader Dr. Phyllis Chesler (phyllis-chesler.com), is with us today.  She describes her efforts at rescuing any Afghan woman who is educated and has a career from a terrible fate.  She and John also dive into the topic of immigration – the sticky issues and questions, especially surrounding Muslim immigrants and assimilation into Western culture.

Our educational system is broken and has been for a while.  Who is most responsible for keeping it broken today?  Joining us is Loyd Pettegrew (usf.edu), Professor Emeritus of Communications at the University of South Florida.  The entities most responsible for continuing the dysfunctional policies of the failing public school system today are the teachers unions.  Parents now know that their children are being indoctrinated and many are pulling them out of public school and into private or home schooling.  With teachers unions, it's all about politics, not students.  He also explains how in colleges, students are awash in liberal socialism from the first class of freshman year.

The Pennsbury School Board, in Bucks County, Pennsylvania north of Philadelphia, recently became the latest flashpoint for angry parents – and the Board's attempts to shut them up. One parent is fighting back by taking the school board to court. Joining us today is a plaintiff in that suit, free speech activist Simon Campbell. Simon, a former Pennsbury School Board member himself, explains what led up to his fiery appearance before the board in June and the subsequent lawsuit. He discusses the rules of the board and how they counteract the U.S. Constitution. He also looks at ways to improve education, including diminishing teachers unions and advocating for merit-based teacher pay. He's the very embodiment of John's axiom: I will not sit down; I will not shut up!

We just passed the one year anniversary of what many people see as the subversion of our national election. What has happened in the last 12 months in uncovering the fraud? Joining us today is Annalisa Pesek (thenewamerican.com), writer and editor at the New American Magazine. She examines the Maricopa County audit results and the need – despite officials and the media strenuously disagreeing – for reform and a stop to election fraud. People and even a few government officials are waking up to the need for reform. But too many on the Left and in the media are not. It raises the question: if there’s nothing to hide, why try so hard to hide nothing?

The World Economic Forum is hosting a meeting this month in the United Arab Emirates to discuss what they are calling the Great Narrative. Back with us today to discuss this is Pat Wood (technocracy.news), Editor-in-Chief of Technocracy News and President of Citizens for Free Speech. The need for this Great Narrative shows that their plans aren't working as well as they would like. It'll still be the same propaganda it has always been, but now everyone will be on the same page. Pat also reveals that Big Pharma and the sustainable development crowd have redefined the term biodiversity to include genetic manipulation and coding for all species on the planet, including humans. It's scientific humanism like you've never seen it!

Can’t Serve Two Masters

This week, it's a show about division. First up, there is a detailed, nuanced divide in Christianity where you have fundamental Christians on one side and social justice Christians on the other. Our first guest this week is Doug Morgan (uncommonsensepodcast.com), host of the Uncommon Sense podcast. He looks at the importance of maintaining relationships within Christianity without sacrificing doctrine. It's always been a delicate balance between living in a fallen world and holding fast to the core tenets of your faith. You can't serve two masters – in this case worldviews. Choose wisely.

This week marked the 32nd anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the ultimate symbol of the divide between the Soviets and the West. John asks why the West has never learned anything from the brutal Communism that gripped countries and cities behind the Iron Curtain for decades. We then welcome back to the show Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson. He discusses China and Iran's economic partnership, the climate conference, and Covid tyranny in cities. He also examines what life was really like under communism in Russia and shows that even Vladimir Putin knows America is inching closer to that reality.

Finally, we look at the division within the Democrat Party. Retired engineer John Green is back with us to try and make sense of the illogical, inept, and bumbling policies of the current administration. Are the power brokers running the show behind President Biden being frustrated by their public leader's incompetence? A civil war has broken out within the Democrat Party. Will the deep division destroy the party or push them completely into socialism? Only time will tell.

Truth has been sacrificed on the altar of political narrative in just about every topic in news stories today.  John and Producer Steve discuss how the truth has been left behind in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, in the recent climate change conference, and in the ongoing saga with the pandemic and the vaccines.  There's even an indictment regarding the fake Russian dossier that no one in the media seems to care about.  Narrative trumps everything else.  If someone really wants to know the truth in any situation, the mainstream media, politicians, and social media sites are not the sources to go to.

Nothing seems to be making any logical sense – Covid is still happening but immigrants get to come here unchecked for the virus; climate is so important supposedly but China and Russia don't show up to the recent climate conference; and politicos bemoan higher gas prices but cheer the closure of pipelines.  What is happening?  Retired engineer, and contributing author at American Thinker, John Green is back with us today to try and make sense of things.  He looks at the implosion of the democrat party and how their dishonesty and ineptitude are ruining everything.  Also, the real power brokers are not helped by the incompetence of the democrats' public leader.  A civil war is under way in their party.  We'll see if they reform or disband. 

On this Veteran's Day, we honor those men and women who took the oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. We thank you for putting on the uniform and selflessly putting yourself in harm's way to protect us.
