Militarized Police State

All federal officials, except the President, swear to 'support the Constitution,' while the President swears to 'preserve, protect, and defend' it. So why do a large majority of those who ascend to these offices promptly ignore, and in some cases defy, the Constitution? First up this week, we welcome constitutional attorney Mark W. Smith (thefourboxesdiner.com) to the show. After the Supreme Court ruled that New York state can't ban conceal carry permits, state officials are labeling nearly every location a 'sensitive place' in regards to guns. So you can have a permit, you just can't carry anywhere. This is constitutional end running at its worst.

When politicians defy the Constitution, it's traditionally been up to the media to call them out. Our next guest, Dexter Van Zile (meforum.org), Managing Editor at the Middle East Forum, shows how the media are selectively reporting based on ideology. They ignore obvious facts staring them in the face, and twist a story to meet the worldview they've built in their heads. And if you dare challenge them, they will go to great lengths (read: censorship) to silence you.

One such ideological narrative pushed by the media and certain government officials has been the supremacy of covid vaccines. Wrapping up the program this week is Dr. Jane Orient (aapsonline.org), Executive Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. She examines the push to vaccinate teens and even toddlers, despite a statistically unlikely chance they will ever contract covid, let alone suffer from it. She also looks at the almost never discussed adverse reactions to the vaccines.

When most politicians take office, they swear to support and defend the Constitution of the United States, but all too often it seems they do exactly the opposite. Joining us today is Second Amendment expert and constitutional attorney Mark W. Smith (thefourboxesdiner.com). After the Supreme Court ruled that New York can't ban conceal carry permits, the state is now allowing them but, in an effort to end run the law, they are labeling nearly every location a sensitive place where you can't carry a gun. Once more we see leaders who've sworn to govern according to the Constitution, doing all they can to end run it.

What would really happen in a national emergency when the always trusted federal government purports to install protection measures but really just expands its powers? Joining us today to answer that is John Whitehead (rutherford.org), Founder and President of the Rutherford Institute. He discusses the things going on both behind the scenes and out in the open that sets the stage for a tightening of control and a suspension of rights should there be an emergency. He offers his solutions as to what can be done about it.

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.

Woke Word Games

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.

John has spoken out about the corruption surrounding civil asset forfeiture for years, but now some jurisdictions are beginning to take notice. Joining us today is CJ Ciaramella (reason.com), Criminal Justice correspondent at Reason Magazine. He shows how Florida has enacted some laws to reform asset forfeiture, but like with anything, those who are abusing the system have found a loophole around the new reform. He looks at the different tactics used during and after seizures, and what some of the money is spent on. If ironclad reform that can withstand loopholes isn't possible, then asset forfeiture should be eliminated.
