Producer Steve has spent the last several weeks researching conspiracy podcasts and websites just to see what kind of information is out there and why it seems so popular. On today's podcast, Steve, John, and Carol discuss the many issues surrounding the so-called “tin foil hat” crowd. Topics include the “scam-demic” view of the virus, whether the vaccine will change your DNA, the idea that President Trump will soon be back in office, and even the belief that Adolph Hitler escaped Europe and lived out his golden years in South America. They even offer a possible explanation as to why people believe this stuff. A little outside the norm for Steel, but still one heck of an interesting episode!
HR1 is a new bill in Congress that, if passed, will codify every suspect procedure involved in the 2020 election – vote by mail, no voter ID, no voter roll cleaning, etc. J. Christian Adams (www.publicinterestlegal.org), President of the Public Interest Legal Foundation, joins us briefly to discuss this new bill. Attempts are being made to make that which is illegal legal.
We then transition to Kurt Hyde (thenewamerican.com), contributor to The New American magazine, who offers possible solutions to HR1, moving back to the fairly secure and reasonable voting procedures of the past. Can we have election reform if HR1 passes?
Censorship is running rampant today, but the media, who should be upholding freedom of speech, are instead advocating for more censorship. John Tierney (city-journal.org), Contributor Editor to the City Journal, is with us to discuss the ramp up of censorship since the Capitol violence and the hypocrisy of the media who did nothing when leftists called for violence during the Trump administration. When freedom is ignored, totalitarianism isn't too far behind.
Finally this week, Palestinian leaders are blaming Israel for not providing them with Covid vaccines, even though they had already procured some elsewhere. Back with us is Dexter Van Zile (www.camera.org), Christian Media Analyst with the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting and Analysis. He points to a bigger picture than just a vaccine controversy – statehood for Palestine and isolation for Israel.
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.
When you're in a paradigm shift, like we are now, there are many important things to take a look at. First up this week is economics. No matter who eventually emerges the winner of this election, the American financial system and the global economy may look different. John and Carol discuss the U.S.'s massive debt load and the future of currency and global economics as well as what could happen with taxes, businesses, and relations with China should a Biden administration become a reality.
Next topic on the slate is the massive and corrupt bureaucracy in government today. Larry Klayman (freedomwatchusa.org), Founder and Chairman of Freedom Watch, joins us to share details from his new book, It Takes a Revolution. The American people can take back this country from the corrupt bureaucrats by rising up and forcing change. It isn't easy but it needs to happen.
There is a huge amount of information flying at us about the possible fraud behind this election and what the Trump administration is doing about it. John and Producer Steve take a look at President Trump's legal options, what could happen to the U.S. if Biden is sworn in, and the trouble with Dominion Voting software.
Finally this week, we dive into the world of vaccines. Recent reports show that Pfizer has a vaccine that is 90% effective and Moderna has one that is 95% effective. Jane Orient (aapsonline.org), Physician in Internal Medicine, joins us to examine how effective the vaccine really is, the ability for those who take it to still spread the virus, and the ingenuity behind how it works.
Recent reports show that Pfizer has a vaccine that is 90% effective and Moderna has one that is 95% effective. How accurate is that and how does it work? Jane Orient (www.aapsonline.org), Physician in Internal Medicine in Tucson, Arizona joins us to discuss how effective the vaccine really is, the ability for those who take it to still spread the virus, and the ingenuity behind how it works.
John finishes up today's podcast with a brief rundown on the not-so-new Great Reset which is just a rehash of the liberal world order that's been in play for quite some time.
With healthcare very much in the news today, we decided to reach into the Steel vault for a classic interview from times past on the issue of mental health. For Throwback Thursday, we resurrect a July 2004 interview with longtime guest, Dennis Cuddy, former Senior Associate at the Department of Education.
Dr. Cuddy discusses how global elites have transformed schools from institutions of learning to social laboratories, using foundations and government edicts to label traditional values as potential signs of mental illness. In Marxist societies, labeling someone as mentally ill is used as a pretext to locking them away indefinitely. The big question is always: who defines what mental illness is?
Whirlwind of important topics on this week's show. First up, we welcome back defense and aerospace veteran Reuben Johnson (www.thebulwark.com) who examines the geopolitics of Belarus, with their growing uprisings; Russia and its future; and China's inroads into Eastern Europe with their Belt and Road Initiative.
Back here in America, the far leftist crowd is determined to rid our country of the Electoral College. Trent England (www.saveourstates.com), Founder and Executive Director of Save Our States, discusses the effort to convert us from a representative government for everyone to, what he dubs, the “United Big Cities of America.”
Science and medicine are supposed to be free of politics but it's an election year so all the rules are out the window. Research writer Dennis Behreandt (www.thenewamerican.com) is back with us to look at the science behind hydroxychloroquine as well as the bad publicity it has received simply because President Trump lauded its use. It's supposed to be scientifically – not politically – correct in the world of science.
Next we travel to the Middle East with David Rubin (www.shilohisraelchildren.org), former mayor of Shiloh, Israel, who joins us from his home there. He looks at both the strategic and economic implications of the Israel-United Arab Emirates agreement, focusing on the constant threat from Iran and the financial benefits to the UAE of partnering with the Middle East's only democracy.
We wrap up this week with John's analysis of the government criteria for future vaccine use and the ethical and legal implications in vaccine development and implementation.
Some new rules and mandates, infringing on our freedom, have popped up but are they legal? Twila Brase (www.cchfreedom.org), President and Co-Founder of Citizens' Council for Health Freedom joins us to discuss the case of a Kentucky couple who tested positive for the virus but didn't want to sign an agreement forcing them to self-quarantine – so the authorities fitted them with ankle monitors. These controversial rights-impeding acts are excitedly written up but then politicians shelve them until a crisis happens and then it's introduced at the precise moment when people are scared enough to accept it. John finishes out today's podcast looking at government criteria for future vaccine use and the ethical and legal implications in vaccine development and implementation.
