Edgar Steele’s Nickel Rant

Nickel Rant is a weekly program hosted by attorney and author Edgar J. Steele. The show runs on Wednesdays, 9pm – 10 pm Eastern U.S. time. As Edgar describes it,

For one solid hour, with no guests, no callers and nothing up my sleeves, I will rant, rave and carry on concerning where America is going in the next four years. Expect specifics and detailed discussions of America’s coming collapse into anarchy, Depression II, Racial Civil War, World War III, the balkanization of America, biological pandemics and New America, with stopovers in total financial chaos and, even, cannibalism (the other other white meat) as we wind down to the end of 2012.

About Edgar

Edgar J. Steele

Edgar J. Steele is an author and trial lawyer who has tried cases throughout the West Coast, being admitted to California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, several Federal District and special courts and the U.S. Supreme Court.

He graduated from the University of Washington with a BA in 1967, then served four years in the U.S. Coast Guard, first aboard ships, then as the Commanding Officer of an East China Sea island LORAN Station during the Viet Nam era.

Edgar graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with an MBA in 1973, then worked for several years in a succession of financial executive positions for corporations, including the Controllership of two companies.

He graduated from the UCLA School of Law in 1982, worked for a couple of years for a small law firm in the San Francisco Bay Area, then struck off on his own.

Today, his law practice is noteworthy for cases that test the limits of constitutional law on behalf of politically-incorrect clients.

Edgar publishes a weekly commentary via the Internet, interspersing observations on the state of American society and politics with reports about aspects of the higher-profile cases he is handling. Free subscriptions are available at

Though Edgar speaks infrequently in public, he has appeared on virtually every national TV network news program and been interviewed repeatedly for Today, Good Morning America, The Early Show, Fox News, Dateline, NBC Nightly News, Court TV (which devoted a full week of broadcasting to one of Edgar’s trials recently), Geraldo and CNN, as well as countless local television news programs and radio talk shows throughout America, in connection with both his writing and the high-profile cases he has handled.

Edgar’s recent book, “Defensive Racism,” an unapologetic examination of racial differences, can be previewed and ordered at

He makes his home in Northern Idaho with his wife of 24 years on a working horse ranch, his three children having moved out and on.

Edgar wants it known that he, himself, is exceedingly politically incorrect.
