I knew he was sick because that was announced on the website:
Robert’s Condition – 08/17/2021
With love to all of you, I survived! I went in at 77 oxygenation. I’m up to 94. I will not take the vaccination, though I did test positive for whatever they’re calling “COVID” today, but the bottom line is that my lungs are not functioning.
The good news is that I will survive with a few days off. I should be back up and at least functional soon. This is been a near death experience, very much like a new death experience the whole country is going through right now. We will never be the same because now we know that we’ve all been lied to about everything. But, now we also know that we can trust each other. I’m alive today because I had a network that put me into a good hospital in Florida.
Steele was on his tour of the U.S. advocating election reform.
Of course there are numerous articles announcing his death and making fun of him for dying of COVID when he had said the pandemic was a hoax.
Here's the Jim Fetzer video. Louisa remarks that she has heard others who were on the tour with him have gotten sick, too.
