The long-predicted day of reckoning caused by severe governmental mismanagement and kicking the can down the road is at our doorstep. John flies solo today looking at the perfect storm of energy policy inflation and monetary inflation coupled with several concerning geopolitical events. The current administration and the powers that be behind the scenes are all seemingly doing the wrong things or worse, nothing at all to help. People are starting to realize that something is very wrong. On the day of reckoning, one group of people will look to the Constitution to guide them through the chaos; the other group will look to destroy it. That's the battle we're in right now.
The Biden administration announced that they are suspending the Disinformation Governance Board. But is the desire to control information really gone from our government? First up this week, we welcome writer and scientist Dr. Matt Briggs (wmbriggs.com) to the program. He shows that even though the disinformation board is on hiatus, other similar offices still exist, like the Office of Environment Justice. Government, in establishing what disinformation is supposed to be, is also establishing what truth is supposed to be.
The need to create a disinformation board in the first place is still prevalent and, according to our next guest, is more about being afraid of dissent rather than disinformation. Back with us today is Brandon Smith (alt-market.us), Founder of the Alternative Market Project. The left has evolved from supporting all free speech no matter what to now demonizing free speech – especially if it goes against their narrative.
We finish up this week with a report out of Canada that the Trudeau administration may soon require journalists to obtain a license if they want to keep doing business. Joining us is freelance writer and software engineer Michael Tennant (thenewamerican.com). Journalists are not yet required to get a license in Canada, but subsidies and preferential treatment tend to go to those who have one. With freedom of speech under attack in the U.S., how long before we see a similar requirement for our press?
This Memorial Day, we take time to honor, reflect, and remember those who've made the ultimate sacrifice for our country so we can keep those freedoms we often talk about.
The disinformation board has been paused, but the need to create it in the first place is more about being afraid of dissent, not disinformation. Back with us today is Brandon Smith (alt-market.us), Founder of the Alternative Market Project. He shows us how the natural evolution of the left seems to have gone from supporting all free speech no matter what to now demonizing free speech – especially if it goes against their narrative. He looks at what the endgame is for those on the left and on the right.
In order for globalists to enact total control through the Great Reset, they need to plan each step accordingly. Leading off the show this week is Brandon Smith (alt-market.us), Founder of the Alternative Market Project. He studies the logical progression of that plan, looking at inflation, universal basic income, price controls, digital currencies, and more. The way to fight back against this plan is to create a parallel society and populate it with analogous businesses. Elites know that, so they retaliate with step one of their plan: boosting inflation. Given our current situation, it would appear that the plan has begun.
What is it really like on the ground in Ukraine? We are joined once again by Reuben Johnson, who has escaped his adopted war-torn country and is back in the United States. He reviews the treatment he received at the hands of the Russians and shares several stories of atrocities committed by Russian soldiers since the war began. He also describes how Putin's military efforts are weakening and gives his thoughts about what needs to happen going forward.
If this isn't the End Times, it's one heck of a dress rehearsal. Finishing out the program this week to discuss the religious aspect of current events is Dr. J.B. Hixson (notbyworks.org), President of Not By Works Ministries. He looks at a key indicator that the End Times period is near: the constant attempts by globalists to form a one-world government. He also discusses elements of his new book, including how covid, the vaccines, and the 2020 election are all related to furthering the globalist plan.
Politicos have mismanaged our economy for years leading us to the paradigm shift we're experiencing today. Now they're trying to offload responsibility but also use this mess to continue their agenda. John opens the program this week continuing his analysis of how we got here. He reviews what President Trump did to repair our economy and how President Biden has undone all of that. The world runs on oil, but there are forces – namely the climate alarmists – that have always advocated for getting us off of oil by taxing it, thereby hurting the poor and middle class. They and the politicos have slowly enacted their plans over the years, leading us to where we are today.
People are beginning to awaken from their slumber when it comes to these plans. The emperor is quickly disrobing and all the cards are now on the table. Joining us today is Christopher Bedford (rightforge.com), Chief Communications Officer at RightForge. Globalists are using our current crises to accelerate their Great Reset plans, but as they do, average everyday folks are waking up. Issues and relationships once thought unimportant are suddenly found to be vital. There's a battle brewing between the resetters and the reformers as we race into an unknown future.
There has been a new set of sanctions against the Russian government for their role in Ukraine. But could there be unforeseen consequences to these new sanctions? With us to discuss is Tho Bishop (mises.org), Assistant Editor of the Mises Wire at the Mises Institute. He shows how politicians are largely ignorant about economics, putting politics over sound policy. He also looks at the very real possibility that the sanctions process being used against Putin right now may soon be used against ‘domestic terrorists' in America.
We finish this week's program with an incredible update from our correspondent in Ukraine, Reuben Johnson. We had feared the worst after not hearing from him for weeks, but he's back and he tells us what he experienced trying to leave Ukraine and how the Russian soldiers feel about the war they're fighting.
The rapid rise of the globalist new world order and the rapid disrobing of the metaphorical emperor has awoken people from their slumber. All the cards are now on the table. Joining us today is Christopher Bedford (rightforge.com), Chief Communications Officer at RightForge. He describes how the globalists are using the current crises to accelerate their Great Reset plans and, as a result, more and more people are waking up to what's going on. Relationships – like with school board members for example – are suddenly more important. It will be a battle between the resetters and the reformers as we race into an unknown future.
John has said that if this isn't the End Times, it's one heck of a dress rehearsal. Joining us today to discuss the religious aspect of current events is Dr. J.B. Hixon (notbyworks.org), President of Not By Works Ministries. We may be living in the last of the last days given a thorough examination of the times. He looks at the constant attempts by the globalists to form a one-world government – a key indicator that the End Times period is near. He also discusses elements of his new book: Spirit of the Antichrist, including how covid, the vaccines, and the 2020 election were all related around a plan to further many of the events happening right now.
John tells us every day that Steel on Steel focuses on economics, politics, and religion. Today, we welcome the Director of Jihad Watch, Robert Spencer (jihadwatch.org) to the podcast, to discuss how all three of those issues are immersed in global dysfunction. He looks at the surging reliance on digital currency platforms, the moving away from the dollar, how bad policies by the Biden administration are projecting weakness to the world, and the nature of jihad and Christian persecution around the world.
John and Producer Steve sit down to chat about a variety of topics today, including the absolute failure, despite the left's best efforts, of the climate change narrative, as well as the media's failure to report actual news, instead replacing it with anonymous sources and faulty fact checking. They also discuss America's role as the world's policeman and whether that will continue or should continue – and if it doesn't, who steps in to fill that void?
Today marks the 32nd anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Has the West learned anything from the brutal Communism that gripped countries and cities behind the Iron Curtain for decades? John begins today's podcast commenting on what actually happened behind the Iron Curtain and how today's youth don't remember the Cold War and the atrocities that happened then. Why doesn't the West ever learn the lessons of Marxism? John answers that question and more.
We then welcome back to the podcast Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson. He discusses Iran and China partnering up economically, the intellectual bankruptcy and hypocrisy behind the recent climate conference, and the state of cities today under Covid tyranny. He also gives a backgrounder on what life was like under Communism in the Soviet Union and how some of that mindset still remains. Even President Putin recognizes that America is doing the same things they criticized the USSR of doing right before they collapsed. Will we ever learn?
