The media are masters at manipulating words, deflecting blame, and promoting one side of politics rather than reporting on facts. In short, the truth is sacrificed in favor of narrative. We kick off this week's show with John tying together several issues, including the media's twisted word games, government officials' useless policies, and academia's constant promotion of the oppressor versus oppressed narrative. The problem is that these woke word games have real world consequences and it's costing people their jobs and sometimes their lives. When we push back – and many are pushing back – the manipulators fight viciously to protect their lie.

Familiar narratives have emerged from the latest climate conference, only now there's a new more sinister directive included. Back with us this week is Alex Newman (thenewamerican.com), Senior Editor at The New American Magazine. He discusses how the globalists, who push this climate narrative, want energy prices to go up, the U.S. economy to crash, and manufacturing jobs to migrate to China. Their plan seems to be working as massive amounts of newly-printed money are chasing far fewer goods because of supply chain issues. Alex says it is an organized looting of our economy.

Finally this week, we revisit an old favorite on Steel on Steel: civil asset forfeiture. It has run amok for years but now some jurisdictions are beginning to take notice. Joining us is CJ Ciaramella (reason.com), Criminal Justice correspondent at Reason Magazine. He examines different tactics used during and after police seizures as well as new reform laws, and the loopholes to try and get around those laws. If ironclad reform that can withstand challenges isn't possible, then asset forfeiture should be eliminated.

We have media manipulating narratives, government officials implementing policies based not on science but on political motives, and we have truth being ignored across the board. John flies solo today and ties all of these things together, looking at how we arrived at this moment in time. Academia is pushing the oppressor versus oppressed narrative and it shows in virtually every story media puts out. John covers several reports that showcase how the truth gets twisted and narrative is king.

We close out 2021 with John as a guest on KYMS radio with Lee Lancaster. John and Lee look at the miraculous escape by Christians who were kidnapped in Haiti as well as uplifting news of a persecuted man in China. But there are also some pretty grisly accounts of Christian persecution around the world and John shares a couple of those. He also dives into some predictions for 2022, including the impact of the midterm elections. Happy New Year everyone! We're off tomorrow – see you in 2022!

You are going to confront two things during your life: reality and God.  Those confrontations are assured, whether we like it or not, so with that in mind, it's important to know what life is all about.  John flies solo today, taking a look at those two confrontations amid the avalanche of lies and blizzard of ignorance we see in the West today.  Caught up in the blizzard and the avalanche are many young people who are being taught to embrace a narrative or a truth claim, regardless of whether it's actually true or not.  John illustrates how Marxist thought is completely antithetical to Christmas: one has to be true while the other has to be false.  John reads from the Gospel of John showing how Christmas definitely wins that battle.

John and Producer Steve take over the studio for today's podcast, looking at inconsistencies in leftist "logic" and media narratives. Steve is having none of it, quietly ranting while John calmly explains what we're seeing and hearing out there. They cover vaccines and the mandates that are requiring them, Kyle Rittenhouse's guilt or innocence – depending on what side you're on, the failure of defunding the police, and the nature of definitions, especially when it comes to racism.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change or IPCC has issued a new report and the collective climate alarmists are doing what they always do – forecasting doom unless we do something drastic. John flies solo for today's podcast, looking at not only the latest climate code red but past predictions of planetary doom that have predictably gone unrealized. There is some sound science in the new report, but the media latch on to all of the dire and crazy predictions. John shows the severe cutbacks recommended in the report in order to save the planet. Politics has distorted the science so much so that we cannot even debate the reality of these cutbacks.

Reality eventually becomes real for everyone and when it does, it usually hurts. On today's podcast, John looks at several news stories including how the Jewish community in America is experiencing violence following the recent Israel-Gaza war and they're beginning to wake up to the reality that the Left, the side most of them have been on for awhile, really don't like them. Also, countries in Europe are facing the reality of cultural violence following the massive Islamic migration of a few years ago. Even the Vatican is encountering the truth after releasing statements on abortion. The mainstream media is to a certain extent facing reality, though they constantly weave narratives to cover it up. Reality always becomes real. How you handle it will determine how much pain you'll be in when it happens.

Extended conversation this week as John and Carol sit down with father and son economic experts Donald and David McAlvany (mcalvanyica.com). The foursome team up to tackle a variety of topics, including current financial trends, burgeoning inflation, the upcoming economic reset, and the rapid onset of in-your-face socialism. They also take a look at the theological and philosophical side of things, as well as the importance of strategic thinking and long-term planning, and the need for little people to do big things each and every day.

We finish up this week with Tammi Rossman-Benjamin (amchainitiative.org), Co-Founder and Director of the AMCHA Initiative. She describes her efforts to combat a bill in California that would force critical race theory into high school curricula. She focuses on the toxic antisemitic nature of CRT and how it doesn’t attempt to eradicate racism and hate – it perpetuates them.

Our round table discussion today, hosted by John and Carol, features two of the most knowledgeable people we know when it comes to economics and theology: father and son duo Donald and David McAlvany (mcalvanyica.com). The foursome team up to tackle a variety of topics, including the facts behind current financial trends and inflation, a realistic look at the upcoming economic reset, and the rapid onset of in-your-face socialism. They also take a look at the spiritual and philosophical side of things, the importance of strategic thinking and long-term planning, and the need for little people to do big things each and every day. It's a long and fascinating conversation!

Happy Memorial Day everyone! In this special holiday podcast, John gives you a behind the scenes perspective on Steel on Steel and why it is we do what we do. He explains why he puts his heart and soul into the show, highlighting the shifts in economics, politics, and religion throughout history that have influenced his thinking. If you're going to take the time to listen, we're going to take the time to put out something worth listening to. On this Memorial Day (and always), we honor those men and women who sacrificed their lives for our freedom. And we honor the One who sacrificed His life so that we may have eternal freedom.
