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.
