Russia, Ukraine, and China are heating up geopolitically while the U.S. seems to be treading water. Who’s in charge here? Defense expert Reuben Johnson is back with us this week from his vantage point in Kiev, Ukraine. He looks at the implications of Russia’s military buildup on the border of his country as well as China’s aerial aggression above Taiwan. He also analyzes Russia’s tactics with the EU and NATO as well how they view the current U.S. administration. Critical question: can the Biden administration handle not only the many domestic issues it faces but also two super powers encroaching on other countries’ lands? Not only do we know the answer to that question, but so does the world.
The long rolling agenda to establish a New World Order has affected virtually every aspect of our lives, including education. In order to understand how we got to where we are, we need to recognize the history of this long rolling agenda. Back with us is long-time friend of the show, Dennis Cuddy, a historian and former Senior Associate at the Department of Education (www.newswithviews.com). He shows how educrats removed moral absolutes and Judeo-Christian values from schools and replaced them with leftist ideals and globalism.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights...” We are all familiar with the words. But what did the founders mean by unalienable rights? Robert Curry (www.claremont.org), Board Member at the Claremont Institute, joins us to discuss the difference between alienable and unalienable rights and how the latter is under attack today. Common sense has been lost and in its place has emerged a post-truth ideology.
Finally this week, we attempt to look at free speech and journalism from a balanced, middle of the ground perspective with Matt Welch (www.reason.com), libertarian and Editor at Large at Reason Magazine. He looks at the difference between the cultural value and the legal value of free speech in society. He also goes over the history of journalism and how the media, an institution protected under the first amendment, has now come out against free speech.

When you get two radio veterans from opposite ends of the world with nearly a century of experience between them together, you get a fascinating conversation. John welcomes New Zealand radio legend Leighton Smith, to the show this week for an extended discussion on the state of the world today. They cover many topics, including Marxism’s infiltration of the West, the real definition of truth, and the media’s blatant narratives against the Right, as well as New Zealanders’ battles with politically correct policies.
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.
A hotspot for religious persecution today, especially against Christians, can be found in China. Opening the show this week is Founder and President of China Aid, Bob Fu, who is also a Christian refugee from China. He describes how physical and virtual church gatherings have been banned, millions of people are in reeducation camps, and many people have been arrested and thrown in prison for hosting in-house church meetings and prayer groups. But the silver lining is that when persecution grows, so does the zeal for Christ and the number of Christians.
HR1 is a new bill in Congress that, if passed, will codify every suspect procedure involved in the 2020 election – vote by mail, no voter ID, no voter roll cleaning, etc. J. Christian Adams, President of the Public Interest Legal Foundation, joins us briefly to discuss this new bill. Attempts are being made to make that which is illegal legal.
How does the globalist Great Reset relate to the recent World Economic Forum? John welcomes back long-time friend of the show, researcher and writer Carl Teichrib, who attended the Forum a couple of weeks ago. He looks at common buzzwords like sustainability, worldwide unity, and peace through global government, while also explaining the meaning of stakeholder capitalism. Religious groups are joining the fray as well, making way for what he calls a new gospel for the earth. Just exactly what are we resetting to?
Sometimes, when your whole world changes and it becomes hard to recognize, it helps to step back and review how we got here. Opening up this week, John looks at the long progressive march through America’s institutions for the past century, as well as the change liberalism underwent from classic liberalism to neo-Marxism. There have been pushbacks along the way as non-liberal administrations took the reins. But, as we have seen with the flurry of executive orders from the new Biden administration, policies keep zig zagging back and forth and nothing ever gets accomplished. John shows us the best way to move forward.
With the paradigm shift in full swing, what is the state of things in this country post-election and post-Capitol Hill violence? John, Carol, and Steve sit down to examine what happened at the Capitol, the motives behind the latest Trump impeachment, and the silencing of conservatives on social media. Many are feeling fear about where our country is heading. Despite the fear and negativity, there is hope in how we move forward.
There is a new totalitarianism emerging in the West. What will it look like? John opens the program this week looking at the characteristics of this new totalitarianism, including how it is based on an untrue ideology that everyone will be forced to accept as fact, it will dictate every aspect of our lives, and it will give lip service to a Bill of Rights that you won’t have access to anymore. It is important to recognize what we’re up against so we can prepare.
