We notice that freedoms are starting to erode in the United States, but how are the other countries in the Westersphere faring? We begin this week by looking at a couple of stories from our neighbors to the north. Joining us is Christine Douglass-Williams (frontpagemag.com), Associate Editor at FrontPage Magazine and current Canadian citizen. She looks at Bill C10 which would limit private user's speech online if the government doesn't approve of it. She also examines how two people have been arrested simply for attending a church in Ontario Province that defied lockdown orders and held a service. Backlash is building in Canada, but is it too little too late?

We then turn our attention to Australia where John was a guest on Joshua Ferrara's podcast recently. The two discuss the importance of worldviews and the friction caused by Marxist thinking and tactics. They also look at how Australia is handling political correctness and methods employed by leftists against conservatives who won't put up with the woke agenda. Totalitarianism doesn't happen all at once; it occurs gradually over time. It's important to spot the increments and stop it before it's too late.

God is the Scientific Answer

Broadcast Running Time: 01:18:35

You've heard of the separation of church and state, but there's another separation that predates that: the separation of church and science. Do you have to be an atheist if you're a scientist? Back with us this week is Dr. Stephen Meyer (returnofthegodhypothesis.com), Director of the Center for Science and Culture at the Discovery Institute. He looks at the intelligent design of the universe and contrasts that with theories from the other side. He even dives into the multiverse controversy. He shows that church and science actually fit together and that God's hand is steering the wheel.

We pivot from intelligent design to the topic of racism for the rest of the show. It sounds like the U.S. is one big institutional and systemically racist country with even our founding documents oozing discrimination. That's what we're hearing, but is it actually true? Eric Kaufmann (manhattan-institute.org), Adjunct Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, is with us to discuss his detailed studies into perceived racism from different swaths of society and how no one, regardless of geography or skin color, is benefiting from media and political narratives. When words and sensitive topics like this become weaponized, discussion is shut down and the problem only worsens.

If race is supposedly dividing our country, how should Christians tackle the issue? Rounding out the show this week is Pastor Marcus Gill (marcusgillinternational.org), Founder and President of Marcus Gill International. He draws on his experience in the black community to shows how politicians don't really understand or want to help minorities. He goes on to urge Christians to love everyone, even those who hate you or simply don't agree with you. Despite what the mainstream narrative seems to be, the strength of our country is in both unity and diversity.

Russia, Ukraine, and China are heating up geopolitically while the U.S. seems to be treading water. Who's in charge here? Defense expert Reuben Johnson is back with us this week from his vantage point in Kiev, Ukraine. He looks at the implications of Russia's military buildup on the border of his country as well as China's aerial aggression above Taiwan. He also analyzes Russia's tactics with the EU and NATO as well how they view the current U.S. administration. Critical question: can the Biden administration handle not only the many domestic issues it faces but also two super powers encroaching on other countries' lands? Not only do we know the answer to that question, but so does the world.

The U.S. seems to be clearly headed toward a totalitarian state. Can we stop it? Believe it or not, we can learn from the coup that ousted the Shah of Iran in 1979. Shahram Hadian (tilproject.com), Founder of the Truth in Love Ministry, joins us to give a history of what happened leading up to and during the 1979 revolution in Iran. Calls were made for free education and health care, media began favoring a particular side, and elections were rigged along with candidates and even outcomes. Sound familiar? Will we end up as Iran did or will we fight back and keep history from repeating itself.

John finishes up this week's program recommending that people ignore the silly pablum of the mainstream media and look at the reality of the world we live in. We need to recognize what's really going on, focus on it, and then formulate a plan of action on how to deal with it.

Accusations of voter fraud and corrupted voting machines are still lingering around the last election, but there was another, much larger factor, that flew under the radar and left no paper trail. First up this week is Dr. Robert Epstein (aibrt.org), Senior Research Psychologist at the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology. He shows how Big Tech companies, Google in particular, potentially shifted millions of votes in the 2020 election thanks to biased search results. He describes his research into ephemeral experiences online and weighs the good and bad ideas on how to reform our election process.

What do the Titanic and the modern day Church have in common? Author and former new ager Warren B. Smith (warrenbsmith.com) is back with us after a long hiatus to discuss his new book, The Titanic and Today's Church: A Tale of Two Shipwrecks. He covers a variety of interesting topics like automatic writing, the God within, and other New Age beliefs that are seeping into the Christian church today. Today's church has been warned countless times about the infiltration of New Age thinking. Will it face a similar result as the unsinkable ship?

John finishes up the program this week by looking back at the Texas cold snap in February, reviewing how the media spun their narratives and how the concept of green energy, worthwhile as it is, is not yet ready for prime time.

Under the Obama administration, we witnessed foreign policy that mostly did not work. Under President Trump, we saw a new and innovative way to approach foreign policy. But now we're back to the policies that have proven to be ineffective. First up this week is Gregg Roman (meforum.org), Director at the Middle East Forum, who looks at the Biden philosophy of hegemonic equilibrium – putting allies and foes on equal footing in a region – and how it has forced our allies to rely less on the U.S. He also points out how we are focusing on unimportant things while our geopolitical enemies are gaining strength.

Next, we have an important announcement for non-public schools. Brian Kelsey (libertyjusticecenter.org), Senior Attorney with the Liberty Justice Center, is with us to alert all private schools that there is money available for Covid relief – if you know where to look and ask for it. If you don't, it reverts back to the public schools.

One of the most important issues in this country is election reform. It is badly needed or dysfunction and fraud will continue to run rampant in our elections. We welcome to the program Michael O'Neill (landmarklegal.org), Assistant General Counsel for Landmark Legal Foundation. He reviews a case from Arizona involving people voting in precincts they don't live in as well as ballot harvesting, both backed by the DNC. The case is now at the Supreme Court and if this isn't overturned, it could set a dangerous precedent moving forward.

Finally this week, we look at the debate over whether online platforms should be considered publishers or editors. Political writer and author Steven Hill (steven-hill.com) joins us to explain both sides of the issue, the effects of the Facebook law in Germany and Section 230 here, and a host of other topics like algorithms, psychographic profiles, manipulated searches, and surveillance capitalism.

The long rolling agenda to establish a New World Order has affected virtually every aspect of our lives, including education. In order to understand how we got to where we are, we need to recognize the history of this long rolling agenda. Back with us is long-time friend of the show, Dennis Cuddy, a historian and former Senior Associate at the Department of Education (newswithviews.com). He shows how educrats removed moral absolutes and Judeo-Christian values from schools and replaced them with leftist ideals and globalism.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights..." We are all familiar with the words. But what did the founders mean by unalienable rights? Robert Curry (claremont.org), Board Member at the Claremont Institute, joins us to discuss the difference between alienable and unalienable rights and how the latter is under attack today. Common sense has been lost and in its place has emerged a post-truth ideology.

Finally this week, we attempt to look at free speech and journalism from a balanced, middle of the ground perspective with Matt Welch (reason.com), libertarian and Editor at Large at Reason Magazine. He looks at the difference between the cultural value and the legal value of free speech in society. He also goes over the history of journalism and how the media, an institution protected under the first amendment, has now come out against free speech.

Chewing Out Our Own Guts

When you get two radio veterans from opposite ends of the world with nearly a century of experience between them together, you get a fascinating conversation. John welcomes New Zealand radio legend Leighton Smith (www.newstalkzb.co.nz) to the show this week for an extended discussion on the state of the world today. They cover many topics, including Marxism's infiltration of the West, the real definition of truth, and the media's blatant narratives against the Right, as well as New Zealanders' battles with politically correct policies.

The leftists have permeated our institutions and our governments and many in Western countries have allowed it to happen. As John says, we have been very busy chewing out our guts and then assuming freedom will continue to stand. But when you use the very benefits of the society you're trying to destroy, the society itself will not stand.

In order to fight misinformation and conspiracy theories, Microsoft has teamed with other companies to trace online content back to its original author in what some people are calling a huge setback in data privacy. Back with us is Russ White (www.rule11.tech), nationwide expert in network architecture, who details the plans of this new cabal. Even if these companies have good intentions, electronic chips can be hacked and backdoor programs can be installed that would completely undermine the original intent of their plan.

John has always said that Steel on Steel is an antidote to the mainstream media who reports some stories and not other stories. But the media is now going one step further and reporting outright lies in the service of a narrative. We open the show this week with John, Carol, and Steve discussing the many lies, obfuscations, and false narratives from the mainstream media. Included are the Washington Post ‘Find the Fraud' story against President Trump and Tucker Carlson's comments on pregnant women in the military.

Some states have business laws friendly to owners and others have laws that clamp down on business progress. Andrea O'Sullivan (www.jamesmadison.org), Director of the Center for Technology and Innovation at the James Madison Institute, joins us. She examines the advantages of having a decentralized system of business so that a company can communicate directly with its consumers and bypass the potential censorship of Big Tech. Many businesses are flocking to states that will afford them this freedom.

Hospitals are now required to enforce price transparency, but many are still fighting against it. Dr. Steven Goldstein (www.houstonhealthcareinitiative.org), Founder of the Houston Healthcare Initiative, joins us to look at the difference between a cost-plus system, which has always been in place, and an up-font one-price system, which would incentivize hospital staff to be more efficient. Many hospitals, however, are stubbornly sticking with cost-plus.

John finishes up the program this week analyzing a couple of news stories showing how totalitarianism is rearing its ugly head on both coasts. Marxism is quickly infiltrating Western society and soon anyone who doesn't agree with the politically correct narrative of the day, will be at best censored or at worst be jailed.

Pushing Back Against the Radicals

Radical leftists are trying to fundamentally transform our country. As a result, people are pushing back in several different ways. The first way can be found in turning the left's sanctuary status campaign back around on them. Joining us this week from the Oklahoma State House of Representatives are Speaker Charles McCall and Representative Jay Steagall. They discuss State House Bill 1236, which gives the state the power to review and if needed overrule executive orders from Washington DC that violate the Constitution. States are beginning to fight back by exercising their tenth amendment rights.

Another example of pushing back against the radicals can be seen in the state of Oregon right now. Michael McCarter (greateridaho.org), President of Move Oregon's Border, describes his group's initiative to transfer several eastern counties in Oregon into the state of Idaho, effectively moving the border between each state. There are several steps to make this happen, but the initiative is now on the May 2021 ballot in Oregon. There is a great frustration among many conservatives who are forced to live with terrible policies just because they reside inside a blue state's borders. We'll see if their effort to escape that will be successful.

Finally this week, John and Producer Steve sit down to look at some of the crazier ways that people are pushing back, including conspiracy theories and civil wars. A civil war is being waged in both political parties between the establishment types and those that want change. There are also conspiracy theories surrounding not only the January 6 incident at the Capitol, but also with vaccines. With so much misinformation flowing from politicians and the media, people are finding all sorts of ways to cope and push back against the radicals.

Equality Before the Law

The Equality Act, recently passed in the House and now awaiting debate in the Senate, has proven to be anything but equal. Joining us first this week is Dr. Anne Hendershott (franciscan.edu), Professor of Sociology at Franciscan University. She examines the impact on faith-based universities and institutions, medical doctors, and female athletes. Newly discovered rights not found in the Constitution are now superseding the rights and freedoms that are actually enshrined in the Constitution. This version of equality is trumpeted before the law.

Following the incident at the Capitol in January, we began hearing a lot about sending Trump supported to reeducation camps and deprogramming centers because they suffered from a supposed psychosis. The Soviet Union used to do things like this. Communist China is doing it today. John welcomes Larry Ong (sinoinsider), Senior Analyst at Sino Insider, who describes China's social credit score system and the cancelling of citizens that don't agree with the CCP's narrative. Playing a big part in the indoctrination is the media, who, like the communist party, distort the facts to tell their own narrative.

Marxism has fully infiltrated the American education system. Is there anything that can be done to stop it? David Schmus (ceai.org), Executive Director of Christian Educators Association International, rounds out our guests this week. He discusses how leftist programs such as the transgender agenda and critical race theory have become prominent in today's schools. But he says there are ways to push back, namely through prayer and a non-offended heart. There is an alternative to the Marxism in today's schools, especially if we have God on our side.

John finishes up this week illustrating how to interact in arguments when the opposing person is acting emotional and irrational. Good advice in a divided world.
