social credit score

What is the future of the world's economy? Is it a digital currency and all the problems that come with that? Or is there a better option? Joining us today is Chris Brady (chrisbrady.com), Founder and CEO of Life Platform. He lends his cryptocurrency experience, looking at the benefits of Bitcoin and the dangers of a digital currency, especially the tracking aspect and the programmability standards. He and John also discuss central banks and the inevitable rollout of debt to create digital currencies. Chris also answers the question: is Russia end running sanctions by investing in crypto?

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.

From the multi-faceted destructive plans of the globalists to the similar, more local tactics of change agents, the fundamental transformation of society rolls on. But when the West projects weak leadership and flawed thinking, the transformation rolls a little faster. First up this week is retired U.S. Navy Captain James Fanell (gcsp.ch), who looks at the disconnect in the Western press between what's happening in Ukraine and the reality of why it's happening. Weakness in American government has given Vladmir Putin the green light to attack Ukraine. Captain Fanell also discusses how China is taking advantage of our weakness to fill Russia's new economic void.

The globalists' overall plan, called the Great Reset, involves transforming the economic landscape. Like with China's social credit score, this transformation will involve what is known as ESG scores for businesses. Here to examine ESG is Pat Wood (technocracy.news), Editor of Technocracy News and Executive Director of Citizens for Free Speech. He shows how companies are being forced to comply with sustainable development and climate change policies in order to survive. Companies are evaluated subjectively based on leftist narratives rather than objectively. Once ESG takes hold, it will affect not only the business marketplace, but also our ability to function within it.

Finally this week, we take a look at the growth of multi-state regional government-like groups who push their destructive change agent policies. Joining us is Kathleen Marquardt (americanpolicy.org), Vice President and Director of the American Policy Center. In her area in Tennessee, one of these groups has popped up and she describes what the group is doing and her efforts to stop them. These quasi-governmental and public entities are actually public-private partnerships designed to seize private property by end-running the Constitution.

Last year turned out to be a banner year for mainstream media misinformation. They seemed so sure of their stories when published, but when facts came out, very few if any admitted they were wrong. Leading off the show this week is Brandon Smith (alt-market.us), Founder of the Alternative Market Project. He looks back at media lowlights in 2021, including talking points like 'pandemic of the unvaccinated,' 'January 6 was an insurrection,' and 'alternative energies didn't cause Texas's winter grid collapse.' Headlines were in large fonts; corrections, if any, were but a tiny footnote.

Unaccountable media occurs not just in the U.S., but also in international press. Nowhere is this more evident than in coverage of Israel. Tamar Sternthal (camera.org), Director of CAMERA's Israel office, joins us this week to look at two stories the media got wrong in 2021. First, Israel was made out to be the aggressor toward Gaza when the facts show that Gaza attacked initially. The second story involved a professor with ties to Hamas promoted as a bridge builder when in reality he taught his students to hate Israel. Once again, neither publisher was held to much account.

Finally this week, we dive into the topic of digital vaccine passports with longtime friend of the show Pat Wood (citizensforfreespeech.org), Executive Director of Citizens for Free Speech and Editor of Technocracy News. He examines the globalist plan to track every human being on earth, using governments and private companies and organizations to get it done. This plan has been in place for decades and with technology finally in place, the globalists are on the cusp of realizing their dream. John notes that this dream looks suspiciously like one written in the Book of Revelation.

There is a plan behind the scenes both in our government and in the private sector to develop digital vaccine passports. Back with us to discuss is Pat Wood (citizensforfreespeech.org), Executive Director of Citizens for Free Speech and Editor of Technocracy News. He details the modus operandi of globalists who link together public and private entities in a plan to track every human being on earth. Huge billion dollar companies and organizations have been involved in doing this for years, and now they are on the cusp of realizing their dream. A dream that looks suspiciously like one written in the Book of Revelation.

Double feature on today's podcast. First up, we've seen the showdown coming for some time – Big Tech versus Free Speech. Will the Constitution's First Amendment protection survive or will Silicon Valley become the center for speech in the U.S.? Freelance writer Michael Tennant (thenewamerican.com) joins us today to tackle this issue. He and John look at Section 230, manipulation of search results, and the government's plan to use Big Tech firms to do what they cannot.

Next up is Lea Patterson (firstliberty.org), Counsel with First Liberty. She discusses the religious freedom case in Maine that was argued before the Supreme Court yesterday. Parents should not be excluded from providing their children with opportunities just because they choose to enroll them in a religious school.

John is back as a guest on KYMS, a local radio station here in the Inland Northwest. John and the host, Lee Lancaster, discuss of a variety of current news items, including manipulation by the media to push certain narratives and the danger to our freedoms from the vaccine mandates. Also Facebook plans to change its name soon to Meta after the metaverse. It plans to move toward computer-generated simulation, which could threaten to cut off human interaction in the future as people get used to living a virtual life. John finishes out today's podcast with several examples of persecuted Christians around the world.

The Hunter Biden laptop story, published just prior to the 2020 election, was immediately denounced by mainstream media, removed from social media, and labeled as false by so-called fact checkers.  Nearly a year later, the story turns out to be true.  Joining us today to talk about it is Adam Guillette (aim.org), President of Accuracy in Media.  He describes the typical media two-step: deny deny deny and then when the story is no longer politically relevant, fess up to the truth.  According to the powers that be, a story isn't true until they want it to be.  So if the media gets things wrong so often and is not trustworthy, why is Congress now ready to bail them out?  It's one for the 'believe-it-or-not' files!
