Alongside freedom of speech as one of our most important issues in this country is that of election reform. It is badly needed or dysfunction and fraud will continue to run rampant in all future elections. Joining us today is 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. The Ninth Circuit ruled in favor of the DNC, who wanted to keep those two practices, and it was appealed to the Supreme Court. If this isn't overturned, it could set a dangerous precedent and significantly hurt election reform. He also looks at HR1 which would take power away from states and essentially federalize elections. We should expect to see decisions on these issues in the coming months.
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.
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.
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.
HR1 is a new bill in Congress that, if passed, will codify every suspect procedure behind the 2020 election – vote by mail, no signature verification requirements, no voter ID, no voter roll cleaning, etc. J. Christian Adams (publicinterestlegal.org), President of the Public Interest Legal Foundation, joins us briefly to discuss this new bill and show that attempts are being made to make that which is illegal legal.
Now that we have the background on HR1, we transition to our second guest of the day, Kurt Hyde (thenewamerican.com), contributor to The New American magazine. He also identifies the problems in HR1 and offers possible solutions to move voting away from dysfunction and back to the fairly secure and reasonable way it's always been done. Election reform is needed. But if HR1 passes, will reform ever be possible?
Throughout the past century, the globalists have been telegraphing where they were taking us. But many, including in the church, said that would never happen. On today's podcast, John looks at how the globalists have moved us along and where we are right now. There was fraud in this election but barring a political miracle, a Biden administration will be inaugurated in January. Many of us are feeling angst or grief over what's happened and what is to come for this country. The globalists' long-rolling agenda has brought this about and they're planning to eschew the church and reset things to a pre-Trump erosion of national sovereignty as soon as they can. So it may be a new environment we're walking into, but the work of God's Kingdom continues and it will be up to us to figure out our place in it.
In the West, the battle of worldviews has a distinct underlying spiritual dimension to it that clearly defines each side. Dr. John Diamond (peacemakersoutreach.com), Founder and Executive Director of Peacemakers Outreach, joins us to look at why we have this divide and hot we can come together. A few decades ago, we removed God from the American landscape and as a result, we are not only warring against each in the realm of rhetoric and censorship, but also on the spiritual level. The best way to fight this battle is to bring God back to our country. And, of course, to pray.
As a result of this massive divide, we are experiencing election chaos which has brought with it a clear paradigm shift. John, Carol, and Producer Steve sit down this week to discuss how, like it or not, no matter who occupies the White House come January, things are going to be decidedly different. They cover a potential Biden presidency, media colluding with democrats, and how the one-worlder crowd is attempting a post-Trump power grab.
Finally this week, we drill down into the election chaos and see where we stand. After a long hiatus, we welcome back Dr. Tamzin Rosenwasser (aapsonline.org), a physician in Internal Medicine and Dermatology. She gives a history of how elections have operated, how electors are chosen, and how opposition to those electors are handled. She also covers evidence of fraud and the voting system software that allowed it. John closes out the program this week briefly highlighting the stages of persecution in a civilized society.
This election has brought forth a paradigm shift and like it or not, no matter which administration occupies the White House come January, things will be decidedly different. So we assembled the knights of the Steel round table – namely John, Carol, and Producer Steve – to talk about it. They cover a potential Biden presidency – and who would actually be running things, how the media are colluding with the democrats, and how the one-worlder crowd is attempting to reassert their plans now that they think President Trump is on his way out. There is definitely a paradigm shift occurring. The best plan forward is to adjust to the new reality instead of clinging to the old.
Where do we stand with the election? There's so much noise and static out there, it's hard to get a handle on what's really going on. Tamzin Rosenwasser (aapsonline.org), a physician in Internal Medicine and Dermatology, joins us to discuss election politics and what can be done moving forward. She gives a history of how elections have operated, how electors are chosen, and how opposition to those electors are handled. She also covers evidence of fraud and the voting system software that allowed it.
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.
