In his speech before a sparse joint session of Congress, Joe Biden uttered the following unscripted words on climate change, "If we do everything perfectly, it's not going to ultimately matter." Well, if that is the case, why are we spending trillions of dollars in taxpayer money to try and fix it? Joining us today is Steve Milloy, Founder of the climate information website JunkScience.com. He points out that even though apparently their solutions won't matter, they are still pushing forward with them to the point where instead of Covid lockdowns, we will have climate lockdowns. So if it won't work, why do it? The answer just may be about ultimate control over everything.
A recording surfaced last week of former Secretary of State John Kerry leaking to Iran details of covert Israeli attacks on Iranian interests in Syria. Is it just the latest in a long line of abuses and usurpations? Joining us today is Larry Klayman (freedomwatchusa.org), Founder and Chairman of Freedom Watch. He relates his experiences battling the Deep State and how they are targeting him and others. There are many faceless unaccountable bureaucrats in Washington working against the American people and Mr. Klayman plans to fight back. A lot of people are fed up. No one is advocating violence, but a revolution may be near.
Something a little different today on Steel on Steel. It's important to understand the economic landscape, not only in this country but also globally. Politics and economics are inextricably linked. So today, we play a recent episode of the McAlvany Weekly Commentary with Dave McAlvany and Kevin Orrick (mcalvanyweeklycommentary.com). They discuss myriad geo-economic issues, including digital currency as a threat to traditional currency, the People's Bank of China and Ali Baba, the Ukraine-Russia dynamic and the dealings that President Biden and his son have had in that arena, oil pipelines in Ukraine and Eastern Europe, and the dollar compared to Chinese currency.
For eight years, we witnessed foreign policy under the Obama administration, most of which 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. Joining us today is Gregg Roman (meforum.org), Director and Chief Operating Officer at the Middle East Forum. He 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. and more on their friends nearby. He also points out how we are focusing on the wrong things while our geopolitical enemies are gaining strength.
The Washington Post issued a massive correction on a story from two months ago that, not surprisingly, cast President Donald Trump in a very negative light. The reason for the retraction – it was all a complete lie. John, Carol, and Steve convene the Steel Round Table today to cover the many lies, obfuscations, and false narratives from the mainstream media. In addition to the Post story, they discuss Tucker Carlson's women in the military comments, and Russia's attempts at misleading us. The media wanted us to focus on the phrase 'find the fraud:' it looks like we have.
Recently, Palestinian leaders procured Covid vaccines from Russia but quickly turned around and blamed Israel for not sending some of their own supply of vaccines. Back with us today is Dexter Van Zile (camera.org), Christian Media Analyst with the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting and Analysis. He looks at who is responsible for healthcare in the Palestinian territories and posits that the vaccine controversy may be pointing to a bigger picture. Now that President Trump is no longer on the world scene, there is a push to solidify Palestinian statehood and isolate Israel.
China is positioning itself in various arenas to become the world's biggest superpower and thus de facto leader on the world stage. Retired U.S. Navy Intelligence Captain James Fanell is back with us today from his home in Switzerland to lend his geopolitical expertise. He looks at the disingenuous words coming from Chinese leadership about how they want unity and peace, but their actions say something completely different. Under President Trump, we were attempting to stay even with China, but with the new Biden administration, the fear is we will lose any tactical advantage we once had. From a military buildup that is vastly outpacing the U.S. to their efforts at information warfare online, China is set to surpass the U.S. as the world's most dominant superpower.
The United States has a new President and he gave a pretty standard speech at his inauguration. On today's podcast, John and Producer Steve look at President Joe Biden's calls for unity and what that really means for America. Each ideological side has completely different visions for our country and completely different worldviews, making unity all but impossible. Will there be an allowance for “people to have room to disagree” like was mentioned in the speech? Or will platforms and internet service providers continue their assault on free speech? Interesting times are ahead. Stay tuned tomorrow for John's analysis of how we got here and how we move forward.
While the U.S. is swaying back and forth over what administration will occupy the White House in January, countries in the Middle East aren't waiting around. Israel-based Josh Hasten (joshhasten.com), host of the Israel Uncensored radio broadcast, joins us today to answer the question: what to do about Iran? There's a marked difference between a Trump and a Biden administration when it comes to how to handle Iran. With so-called official sources calling Biden the winner, Gulf States in the Middle East are forming alliances with Israel to fight against Iran should help not materialize from Western countries or from the UN.
