On today's podcast, John and Producer Steve tackle two interesting topics. First up, the White House Press Secretary announced last week that the Biden administration is working with social media companies to flag what they deem to be misinformation about vaccines. There is also collusion with text message carriers and their so-called fact checkers to "monitor closely" texts between private citizens. The second topic involves the Arizona election audit and the media frenzy surrounding it. They also look at the unlikely scenario, should the audits be successful in showing that President Trump actually won the states in question, of his return to office in the very near future. If it's so unlikely, why are the media so upset?
Whirlwind tour around the world today as we bring back Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson to talk with us about a variety of topics. He covers the Wuhan lab leak theory and how the media has handled it as well as the resurrection of the Iran Deal by the Biden administration. He takes a look at China's geopolitical plans and how Russia is getting away with the hacking of key industries in the U.S. He then compares America to the Roman Empire in its latter years as well as the Soviet Union economically right before it fell. We need to focus on things that matter – like modernizing our military – instead of useless controversies that distract us from forces trying to destroy us.
A military should be focused on defense of a country and being better than the enemy. But our military has begun to focus on social engineering issues instead. First up this week is Retired Air Force Colonel Mike Angley, who served 25 years in the Office of Special Investigations for the Air Force. He looks at new woke policies in the military, including snitch phone lines and diversity training. Many of these policies would lower morale, discipline, and unit cohesion. In other words, defense and being better than our enemies have been overtaken by political correctness.
And when it comes to government policies, our current administration is reverting back to Obama-era programs, despite their previous failures. Back with us today is Ken Timmerman (kentimmerman.com), CEO of the Foundation for Democracy in Iran. He examines the Biden Middle East policy, especially where it concerns Iran, and how Iran has not had to concede anything in a newly resurrected Iran Deal. He also looks at the future of the Abraham Accords now that the Trump administration is out of power.
We may never know exactly where the Covid virus came from, but it's looking more like it could have originated in a lab in China. Rounding out the show this week is Dr. Roger Klein (rogerdklein.com), Chief Medical Officer at the cancer genomic company Omniseq. There will be investigations into the virus's origins, but will anything come of it? Will we learn anything from the past year? Dr. Klein discusses supply chain deficiencies, the need to rely solely on science and not politics, and whether lockdowns were the right move.
We may never know exactly where the Covid virus came from, but it's looking more and more like it could have originated in a lab in China. Joining us today is Dr. Roger Klein (rogerdklein.com), Chief Medical Officer at the cancer genomic company Omniseq. There will be investigations into the origins, but will anything come of it? Will we learn anything from this experience? Dr. Klein examines supply chain deficiencies, the need to rely solely on science and not politics, and whether lockdowns were the right move.
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.
