    The international adversaries the United States faces haven't changed much since the Cold War. While the technology has evolved, the unconventional war tactics they use have remained largely the same. Now, as Russia threatens war beyond Ukraine, Iran and North Korea renew their threats; and as the Chinese regime threatens Taiwan, the United States is again faced with the possibility of war. Yet, all of these nations have employed methods of war by other means. And the question remains of how the United States should respond. Special training programs in the U.S. military practice to face these types of threats—and among them is the Navy's Fighter Weapons School, known as TOPGUN. To learn more, we speak with James Robb, former TOPGUN commander, retired Navy admiral, and president of the National Training and Simulation Association.   ⭕️ Stay up-to-date with Josh with the Crossroads NEWSLETTER

    ‘Comprehensive Sex Ed' Tied to Programs to Sexually Groom Children: Brenda Lebsack

    Schools are adopting programs tied to “Comprehensive Sex Ed” and others that are teaching a hyper-sexualized narrative on gender and personal relationships. Behind these programs is a system that is pulling children from the authority of their parents, and exposing them to direct lines of communication with adults on sexual platforms. Children who refuse the new sexual and political narratives face various forms of racial and sexual discrimination, and parents who refuse to acknowledge the sexual narratives can be accused of “spiritual abuse.” According to Brenda Lebsack, a teacher of 30 years and a former school board member for Orange Unified School District, these programs equate to the grooming of children and are part of a broader agenda.   ⭕️ Stay up-to-date with Josh with the Crossroads NEWSLETTER

    The Jan. 6 Committee is preparing its public hearings, where it plans to present evidence on the protests at the U.S. Capitol. Yet The New York Times offered a different take, suggesting the hearings are less about justice and more about politics, with a focus on trying to shift votes for the midterm elections. It stated, “With their majority at stake, Democrats plan to use the six high-profile hearings to refocus voters' attention on Republicans' role in the attack.” Meanwhile, a criminal case has been reopened involving Clinton adviser Mark Middleton, who killed himself and who had admitted Jeffrey Epstein to the White House seven times. The family of Middleton is attempting to prevent information on his death from being released publicly, since they allege it can lead to conspiracy theories. And in other news, the world is heading into a food crisis, according to a report from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and the United Nations World Food Programme.

He was charged with lying to the FBI when claiming he didn't work for any specific client, as he was working for the Clinton campaign and was spreading false information of a covert communications channel between the Trump Organization and Russia's Alfa Bank.

    Senate Republicans recently voted down a bill intended to combat what Democrats say is a rise in domestic terrorism, noting the bill constituted the creation of “thought police” offices within federal agencies. On a deeper level, however, the arguments for the bill were based on a false pretense that a recent mass shooting in Buffalo, New York, was done by a “far-right extremist.” In reality, the shooter appeared to be a far-left National Bolshevist, as have others. We invite Trevor Loudon, host of Counterpunch and author of “Enemies Within,” to explain this. In other news, another mass shooting recently took place in Uvalde, Texas, where a man shot and killed 19 children and two teachers at an elementary school. The tragedy is being used politically by Democrats to advance an agenda against firearms, yet emerging information has undermined a central argument to the gun control narrative—that firearms are not needed for defense, when police provide this as a service—since police waited nearly an hour to stop the shooter, out of fear for their own safety.

    Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, offered to buy Twitter for $43 billion and to make the social media company private. His offer has sparked a national debate on free speech, with establishment news outlets and others claiming that censorship is necessary for an alleged democracy to survive. The issue has gone beyond just a discussion on Twitter and is bringing attention to activities of corporate systems, working with government powers and media influencers, to crush the basic rights of Americans. And in other news, special counsel John Durham's case against former Clinton campaign attorney Michael Sussman is going on trial, and will focus on Sussman allegedly lying to the FBI about his involvement in creating the false Trump-Russia narrative. We're also joined by war correspondent Michael Yon, who is live from Panama, to talk about what he's discovered at the Darien Gap, and what the end of Title 42 means to America's border.

Tammy Nichols, a Republican, says that it contains possible legal issues since normal protections under the law are being reversed. Nichols said, “You know, that's what we are finding is that when these cases happen, the guilt rests upon the parents to be able to prove themselves innocent.” The topic is also gathering deeper controversy amid pushes for COVID-19 vaccine mandates on children.

    Christopher Rufo: CRT Is Based on the Prison Politics of Racial Segregation

    To see the possible results of critical race theory (CRT) and the type of society it could create, we can look at the prison systems where many of CRT's ideas were formed. This is according to writer, filmmaker, and researcher Christopher Rufo, whose research into race politics within the prison system led him to research the origins and possible results of CRT as it spreads through American schools, corporate trainings, and government. He explains there is a parallel between CRT and prison gang ideologies, which emerged from black nationalist and Marxist-Leninist revolutionary movements in California in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Rufo also details how CRT attempts to represent an anti-racist movement, but in reality, encourages hatred and racism. He explains “They're telling certain employees you can't mix with these employees during these diversity training programs because you are dangerous to each other. You should actually be in some ways hostile to one another.” And as CRT trainings are finding their way into schools, businesses, and government agencies, the discriminatory roots of the system may even be illegal under U.S. law. Rufo explains, “By delivering that message, a lot of attorneys that I've worked with believe that you're violating the First Amendment, which protects your right to conscience; the 14th Amendment, which guarantees equal treatment under the law; and also the Civil Rights Act.” ⭕️ Stay up-to-date with Josh with the Crossroads NEWSLETTER

    “There's a reason why critical theorists haven't stood up and said, ‘let's get the Supreme Court to recognize Marxism as a religion.' Why? It would limit their activity, it would limit what they can do, because they've gone under the radar. The best religion to have, if you want to influence a lot of people, is the religion that nobody realizes is a religion.” Communism is rooted in religious debates going back hundreds of years, and with these influences, the modern ideas of socialism and woke cancel culture are part of a state religion. According to Lucas Miles, a pastor and author of the book “The Christian Left: How Liberal Thought Has Hijacked the Church,” understanding the roots and beliefs of the socialist state-run cult is essential in understanding what's behind today's religious and political debates. ⭕️ Stay up-to-date with Josh with the Crossroads NEWSLETTER

    “Sweden sent all their kids to school for two years; not one kid died. But it was irrelevant to Americans who, like sheep, ruined their child's lives. That is how bad totalitarianism is: people will sacrifice their children to the state. Child sacrifice did not end in ancient Canaan.” A type of extreme secularism has taken over in the United States and the world. It has taken over each person's natural search for meaning, and manipulated it toward political agendas. According to Dennis Prager, host of The Dennis Prager Show and co-founder of PragerU, this secularist extremism is behind policies that sacrifice the health and wellbeing of children at the altar of safety. It has also redefined morality in the name of politics, and is ruining science in the name of wokeism.
