In Massachusetts, a church has applied to open a Bible-based school, but the local subcommittee in charge of approving their request dragged their feet and ultimately declined the request. Discussing the issue today is Andrew Beckwith (mafamily.org), President of the Massachusetts Family Institute. According to the law, the church has met the requirements needed to open the school, so we'll see how the full committee votes in late April. He examines other education cases in Massachusetts, including one where student athletes must sign a diversity pledge before they can play sports. For the woke leftists, their policies are a religion as well – albeit one that is diametrically opposed to Christianity.
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.
There are two characteristics that are emerging on the global stage covering a panoply of issues. John flies solo to open the program this week, identifying these two issues as eroding confidence in our public officials and their tendency to enforce rules and regulations arbitrarily. He gives a few examples in the world economy where these issues are causing substantial erosion. He then goes on to give the history of the dollar as the world's reserve currency, describing the many sleights of hand used to manipulate and weaponize the dollar over the last 75 years. The result is the economic mess we find ourselves in today.
Cancel culture is pervasive today, not just in economics, but across all aspects of society. How did it get to this point and is there a way to stop it? Joining us today is Mark Bauerlein (firstthings.com), Senior Editor at First Things and Professor Emeritus of English at Emory University. He shows how the younger generations are learning this canceling behavior, both online and in schools, parlaying that on to college campuses and then into the workplace. Many Christian denominations have fallen prey to this as well. But if enough people stand up, call it out, and reject it, we can put a stop to it.
What is the advantage of an armed citizenry? Finishing out the program this week is Brandon Smith (alt-market.us), Founder of the Alternative Market Project. He looks at the advantage the U.S. has in having an armed citizenry, including the importance of the Second Amendment. No one has ever invaded America, most likely because we have millions of armed citizens. He also advocates for bringing back a well-regulated militia – a controversial idea to the left but an important one to discuss.
Cancel culture has gained a pervasive prominence in our society. How did it get to this point and is there a way to stop it? Joining us today is Mark Bauerlein (firstthings.com), Senior Editor at First Things and Professor Emeritus of English at Emory University. He describes how the millennial generation learned this cancelling behavior during their teenage years and then parlayed that knowledge to the campus and then to the workplace. While in school, woke educators taught a version of American history that projected America as a horrible place. It's easy to have a Marxist, cancel culture mindset after that. He also points out that many Christian denominations have fallen prey to this mindset as well. But if enough of us stand up, call it out, and reject it, we can put a stop to it.
The Left seems to have cornered the market on protests. What is the best way for the Right to organize demonstrations? Author, media dynamo, and radio talk show host Wayne Allyn Root (rootforamerica.com), is with us today for a brief Sunday extra podcast. He discusses his new book about how to protest and boycott – all peacefully – against woke companies. John also asks him why Jews largely vote for a party that doesn't seem to respect them.
The U.S. military has begun to focus on social engineering issues rather than the concerns of a military. As a result, we are weakening our global presence, damaging morale, and setting ourselves up for future failure. Joining us today is Retired Air Force Colonel Mike Angley, who served 25 years in the Office of Special Investigations for the Air Force. He looks at the new woke policies in the military, including snitch phone lines, which would lower morale, discipline, and unit cohesion. It fosters an atmosphere where one's constitutional rights are violated. As a member of the Armed Forces, it makes it tough to uphold your oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States if the military hierarchy is ignoring that Constitution.
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.
If there's one thing you don't want politicized, it's life-saving drugs and the science behind them. Research writer Dennis Behreandt (www.thenewamerican.com) is back with us to look at the science behind hydroxychloroquine as well as the bad publicity it has received simply because President Trump lauded its use. Politically correct thinking is slowly taking over the world of science and it's to the detriment of not only the people it could help but also the scientists who are tasked with helping them.
