election fraud

There are many reasons we are so divided in this country. One reason stems from the lack of honest teaching of today's children. Leading off the program this week is Wesley Smith (discovery.org), Chair and Senior Fellow at the Discovery Institute's Center on Human Exceptionalism. He looks at why we have such a hard time talking to people with opposing ideologies. It involves two sides coming at an issue with two different mindsets and two different groups of word definitions. But fundamentally each side has a different moral frame of reference that renders debate virtually impossible. Only when we recognize that the paradigm has changed will be able to try and bridge the divide.

Switching now to geopolitics, there is a lot going on in the world today that the media simply doesn't cover. Joining us this week is Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson. He discusses the geopolitics surrounding the Cuba protests, Iran's attempts to kidnap American citizens, Ukraine-Russia relations, and the latest on what China is up to. He also laments the downfall of journalism, specifically at the Washington Post.

Finally this week, John and Producer Steve sit down to tackle two interesting topics. First, the White House has now admitted to colluding with social media companies to flag what they deem to be misinformation about vaccines. And second, they explore the possible outcomes of the state election audits, including the questionable chances of President Trump retaking the White House should the audits prove he won and the media's near screeching coverage of what they call the "fraudits." If the election was legit, why are they so upset?

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?

Critical race theory has taken hold in education, but now that it has been roundly rejected by a majority of the people, teachers unions and educrats are running away from it. First up on the show this week is Lindsey Curnutte (heritageaction.com), Press Secretary for Heritage Action for America. She looks at how the NEA seems to be washing their hands of CRT, erasing it completely from their website. She also promotes Heritage's new e-book on how to combat critical race theory, which you can find at crtbook.com.

Because of CRT and the many other Marxist theories that have been taught to children for decades, many of today's youth don't want to debate and don't seem capable of understanding history as it actually was. Anne-Christine Hoff (jarvis.edu), Professor of English at Jarvis Christian College in Texas, joins us. She discusses how ideological youth make claims they can't back up or defend and then call you a racist if you disagree with them. That is classic Marxism. She also looks at how many Christian universities haven't stepped up to address these issues.

This toxic ideology has spilled out of universities onto the street as our next guest can attest. Back with us is longtime friend of the show Dexter Van Zile (camera.org), Christian Media Analyst for CAMERA. He describes the horrible treatment he endured during a Students for Palestine rally at a university campus in Boston. There's a degradation of civility in the U.S. and a significant part of that is aimed at Jews and supporters of Israel. That campaign is in part a result of untrue narratives being perpetuated throughout the education system.

We wrap up today's show with Tara Ross (saveourstates.com), Advisor at the group Save Our States. She examines the checks and balances that keep absolute power from any one branch of government, focusing on the For the People Act, which has been shot down for now but will not go away. She also looks at 2020 election-related procedures that did not go through proper channels and egregious overreach by governors during the pandemic.

A Little American History Truth

Broadcast Running Time: 01:19:17

Happy Independence weekend everyone! It's important to learn the truthful history of our country, but the prevailing leftist narrative today is that because some of our Founding Fathers were slave owners, any good that they accomplished is forgotten. First up on this holiday show is Bill Federer (americanminute.com), President of AmeriSearch, Inc. He gives an accurate account of the history of slavery in America: who held slaves, who initiated the abolitionist movement, and where the two political parties have stood on the issue throughout the years. The narrative is that the U.S. is irredeemable because of our history with slavery. What is often ignored is that we also got rid of it.

Much of the immigration debate today is centered around our southern border, but with the current administration's proposed policies, should the focus be elsewhere? We welcome back former U.S. immigration Senior Special Agent Michael Cutler (michaelcutler.net) to the program. He asserts that because thousands of people are entering our country and then are bused away from the border, the U.S. needs to beef up interior enforcement. A majority of the time, there are no interviews and no investigations done, which means random U.S. cities are seeing a sudden spike of new un-vetted residents.

Finally this week, we look at the intriguing possibility of a constitutional crisis should these election audits prove President Trump actually won the election. Rounding out the show is retired engineer John Green, who examines the Supreme Court's role in election integrity prior to and after November 3. Because they refused to hear a case that could have cleared up some questions right after the election, SCOTUS could soon be in the unenviable position of determining if President Biden is really the President. A constitutional crisis may be looming in the coming months.

With election audits finishing up in Arizona and more gearing up in other states, we could have an interesting situation on our hands – what if it's proven that President Trump actually won the 2020 election? Retired engineer John Green is back with us today to discuss the Supreme Court's role in all of this, including their failure to even hear a case before January 20th that could have settled a lot of questions. Because they punted on hearing that case, they could very well be in the future position of determining if President Biden is really the President. If President Trump were to be declared the true winner of the election, a gigantic constitutional crisis will be upon us with a lot of questions and potentially thousands of lawsuits in the offing.

It is a two-guest Wednesday here on Steel on Steel. First up is Trent England (saveourstates.com), Founder and Executive Director of Save Our States. He looks at the attempted federalization of the election system by end running the electoral college via the National Popular Vote. He also discusses HR1 and SB1, Congress's attempt to change election laws so that states have less power and the chaos we saw last year would become the norm.

We then transition to James Bovard (jimbovard.com), author and Member of the USA Today Board of Contributors. He examines what it looks like when the federal government actually is in charge of something – namely the IRS. He comments that the IRS has been given vast discretion and with that comes vast abuse. Are we headed toward more abuses like we've seen in previous administrations?

Michael O’Neill: Reforming Elections

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.
