Some of you may remember the song written in 1907 called, School Days. A popular part of the song went like this---School days, school days,-Dear old Golden Rule days.-Readin' and 'riting and 'rithmetic,-taught to the tune of the hick'ry stick.--The education system has come a long way since those days as students today are being heavily indoctrinated in socialism, critical race theory and sex education on steroids with new definitions of what is male, female, marriage and family. Is all this by accident or by design---Joining Jim to provide answers was Alex Newman. Alex is an award-winning international freelance journalist, author, researcher, educator and consultant. He's senior editor for The New American and contributes to other publications as well. He is author of Crimes of the Educators and Deep State- The Invisible Government Behind the Scenes. He is Founder of Liberty Sentinel.--Alex began by noting that the United Nations believes that education, brainwashing and public schooling are critical mechanisms by which they will bring their New World Order agenda to fruition. You can see this in the U.N.'s international agreements. It's been going on for over a century and is getting progressively worse.--He then discussed the people and history behind public education and how these people set it up with the specific purpose of turning children away from God, the Bible, Christ and those principles that our nation was founded upon. This includes socialist Robert Owens, Horace Mann -who wanted the Bible out of the classroom- and John Dewey, the man responsible for religious humanism.
Here's the lineup of stories from the early portion of this week's program-----The governor of the State of Tennessee signed a proclamation declaring today, September 30th, as a day of prayer, humility and fasting in that state. The Freedom from Religion Foundation called this proclamation, unamerican. ----The southwest coast of Florida has been forever transformed by the devastating winds and storm surge of Hurricane Ian. 21 people are believed to have been killed. It's now taking aim at South Carolina.----Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar indicated that voting Democrat can help stop climate change and hurricane disasters.----The Nord Stream pipeline that runs from Russia to Germany was sabotaged Wednesday resulting in 3 leaks. ----The CIA warned Germany of possible attacks on the Nord Stream pipelines weeks ago. ----Former President Trump addressed the seriousness of the sabotage of the Nord Stream 2 pipelines, warning that such an act could be sufficient to trigger World War III.----On Wednesday, the U.S. embassy in Moscow began urging Americans with dual U.S.-Russian citizenship to leave Russia or risk being forced into Russia's escalating war with Ukraine. ----Vladimir Putin signed an order today that will officially -in Russia's view- annex 4 Ukrainian regions under the rule of the Russian federation.----Russia has begun to expand its influence in Latin America.----The U.S. Army's first transgender officer has been indicted for attempting to pass medical information to the Russians in a bid to aid Vladimir Putin's campaign in Ukraine.----Iran's protests show no signs of slowing anger toward the morality police.
Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet is the president and CEO of Truth for Health Foundation, a non-profit public charity. Since February 2020, she has been part of the team of frontline physicians treating COVID early at home. With Dr. Peter McCullough, she is a co-author-editor of the Guide to COVID Early Treatment- Options to Stay Out of Hospital and Save Your Life.--According to Worldometers, there have been over 98.1 million coronavirus cases in the U.S. From that they indicate that there have been 1,083,798 deaths. Then according to the October 2022 Consumer Reports magazine, anywhere from 10-30- of individuals who got COVID-19 had symptoms long after they first became ill. Also, they report that according to the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, as many as 27 million or more people are being affected by Long Haul COVID-19. --Dr. Vliet takes issue with these numbers partly because she believes that what many doctors are telling their patients is that what they claim is Long COVID is actually complications and side effects from the inflammation, micro blood clotting and immune suppression from the COVID shots. She also indicated that these 3 factors were engineered into the COVID virus. --She noted that there are those who've died after the shot having had strokes, heart attacks, the flaring of autoimmune disorders and cancers that are getting out of control. All of these are known complications of the COVID shots. In the midst of this she believes many doctors are wearing blinders due to the fact they're not doing the necessary blood tests and imaging studies that would clarify the diagnosis.
Twila Brase is president and co-founder of Citizens' Council for Health Freedom. Twila is a registered nurse, a certified public health nurse and author of the eight-time award-winning book, Big Brother in the Exam Room- The Dangerous Truth About Electronic Health Records. She's the speaker on the daily -Health Freedom Minute- heard on stations across the nation.--On September 18th, on CBS television's 60 Minutes program, President Joe Biden declared that the COVID pandemic is over. If it is over, what are the ramifications---Twila commented that if the pandemic is over, then there are things that go away such as the emergency use authorizations. So if we don't have a pandemic, yet the government lifts the emergency declarations, then the EUA's would go away. There are EUA's on all the injections, masks, and many other things yet they're being imposed even though they may not work well or haven't been fully tested and they couldn't be mandated if they were no longer authorized.--She went on to note that there's lots of money behind all this. One example she gave is hospitals that are going after COVID funds and no one wants to -shut off the spigot.- --Audio clips are featured from President Biden and White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre who attempted to explain Biden's comments that the pandemic is over. You'll also hear from Dr. Anthony Fauci, Christine Anderson of the European Union, along with the emotional testimony of a pediatric nurse who spoke before the San Diego Country Board of Supervisors.--The president may believe the pandemic is over but is it- Does the administration as a whole want it to be over- What's the latest on Long COVID-
Sharron Albertson is the director of Life Chain in Texas.--Life Chain began in Yuba City, California, in 1987 by Royce Dunn who was praying for a way to get the abortion clinics out of his area.--What exactly is a Life Chain- According to the Life Chain mission statement- ---A Life Chain is a peaceful, prayerful, public witness of pro-life Americans -and Canadians- standing in remembrance of 62 million lives lost to abortion, praying for our nation, for people in crisis situations and for a permanent end to abortion. It is a visual statement of solidarity by the Christian community that abortion kills children, hurts women and men and that the church supports the sanctity of human life from the moment of conception to natural death.---This broadcast also dealt with several accounts concerning the story of Mark Houck, a well known pro-life author, sidewalk counselor and father who was allegedly the latest victim of a U.S. Department of Justice sponsored raid and arrest. -There is some dispute among news sources concerning some facts of the case, such as whether a S.W.A.T. team was involved or not.- The arrest is said to be over alleged Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act -F.A.C.E.- violations. - -Jim then contrasted this case with the obvious silence from law enforcement over the many incidents of vandalism, graffiti and threats against pro-life pregnancy care centers and individuals.--Jim also opened the phone lines so that listeners could share their concerns.
Below is a sample of stories Jim presented to listeners from the news desk-----The House of Representatives passed legislation Wednesday to overhaul the 1887 Electoral Count Act and rewrite election rules to benefit Democrats in presidential contests.----New York Attorney General Letitia James filed a lawsuit on Wednesday accusing former President Trump and 3 of his adult children and executives at his business empire of fraudulent financial practices that she claimed occurred over the course of more than a decade.----The House passed the Invest to Protect Act that's been said to be a dangerous bill. If it would pass the Senate, it would allow the DOJ to provide grants to police departments of their choosing while getting their claws into several areas of local policing.----The Defund the Police agenda launched by leftists across America only a few years ago has had some serious impacts already. According to a report in the Daily Mail, a retired chief said response times are longer when there are fewer officers and there's not enough time for training when they're working overtime.----New Orleans has overtaken St. Louis as the murder capital of America.----A survey of San Francisco residents conducted over the summer showed that nearly two-thirds of them believe the city is going downhill. ----Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot shot back at McDonald's CEO for comments that he made about surging crime in Chicago where the fast-food chain is headquartered.----An accused, jilted madman who flew into an axe-wielding rage at a lower east-side New York McDonald's was released without bail at his arraignment.----Conservatives succeeded in canceling a Disney-themed drag show.
Our culture is becoming increasingly hostile toward Christianity. We're told to -get with the times- or to keep our religion within the four walls of our churches. --The guest on this Crosstalk indicated that as the intolerance toward Christianity increases, this is not a time to be silent nor to hide. In fact, he believes it's imperative that we stand up for biblical truth and expose the works of darkness.--To guide listeners in that effort, Crosstalk welcomed back Dr. Erwin Lutzer. Dr. Lutzer is Pastor Emeritus of The Moody Church where he served as the senior pastor for 36 years. He's the speaker on the radio programs Running to Win and Songs in the Night. He is a speaker and an award winning author of several books with titles including- The Cross in the Shadow of the Crescent, Life Changing Bible Verses You Should Know, We Will Not Be Silenced, and the newly released, No Reason to Hide.--Dr. Lutzer began by noting that we as Christians didn't go looking for a culture war. This war is on our doorstep and we can't avoid it. It's in our law, our schools, businesses and media and he encouraged listeners to stand strong.--So what's the difference between this latest book and his previous effort -We Will Not Be Silenced-- Both books are about the culture but this latest one has new chapters not covered in the previous book. For example, one chapter is called- -Will We Expose the Greatest Lie That is Our Nation's Most Cherished Delusion.- This has to do with the ascendancy of the self. Elsewhere he covers diversity, equity and inclusion and how these work against us. There's information on the global reset, the history of racism, and so much more.
Andrew Arthur is Resident Fellow in Law and Policy for the Center for Immigration Studies. He began his legal career through the Attorney General's Honors Program as a clerk to an Administrative Law Judge in the Office of the Chief Administrative Hearing Officer at the United States Department of Justice, Executive Office for Immigration Review.--Illegal immigration is continuing at an incredible rate. Early in his administration, President Biden had feared 2 million aliens at our southwest border. That fear has become reality. --States have had enough with some transporting these individuals to areas that have declared themselves to be sanctuaries for illegal aliens. This includes places like Washington -D.C.-, Chicago, New York City and Martha's Vineyard. The -left- is outraged, claiming that in doing this, red state governors are using these individuals as political pawns.--President Biden's administration blames the Trump administration for what's going on at the border. That's interesting because when candidate Biden was running in 2008, he indicated he was in favor of a border wall. In fact, in the Secure Fence Act of 2006, then Senator Biden, Senator Obama and Senator Hillary Clinton, all voted in favor, not just for wall funding, but mandated that a wall be erected. --According to Andrew, the Biden administration believes that the border is closed and secure. They establish this definition based upon the idea that most individuals that cross the border are put into removal proceedings in the U.S. This is not what the law says, what Congress says, nor what the American people say should be going on as well. It's a game of semantics.
Was the 2020 election fair and honest- Why isn't the major media defending the freedom to disagree with the result- Instead of denigrating those outside of their narrative, why aren't they even attempting to investigate the possible evidence for such claims- In fact, this narrative has become so well controlled that you can't even ask such questions without being labeled as an -election denier.- --Contrary to what the major media denies or refuses to report on, the guest on this edition of Crosstalk exposes as he cites vote fraud on various levels that appears to have yielded a predetermined result.--That guest was Robert Knight. Robert is a former Los Angeles Times news editor, columnist for the Washington Times and he contributes to other publications as well. Robert has held senior positions in a number of pro-family organizations. He's written several books including The Coming Communist Wave- What Happens If the Left Captures All Three Branches of Government, Liberty on the Brink, and the brand new- Crooked- What Really Happened in the 2020 Election and How to Stop the Fraud.--Should we move on and stop looking at the 2020 election- Robert's response- -Only if you don't care what happens in the next election.- For his latest book, Robert tried to gather all the evidence in one place to make it easy for people. That included evidence from outside sources such as author Mollie Hemingway as well as Dinesh D'Souza. Such evidence indicates that the election was manipulated and accompanied by vote fraud.--Robert brought listeners a peek into his latest book by discussing these and other election related points- --The consequences of the 2020 election.
Marty Zide is the director of the Midwest Messianic Center. As a Jew, he placed his trust in Jesus as his Messiah in December, 1971.--The Jewish calendar has many holidays of significance, broken up between spring and fall feasts. Marty gave listeners an overall picture of these but then specifically concentrated on the fall feasts. They include- --Rosh Hashanah -Feast of Trumpets--September 25th, beginning at sundown.--Yom Kippur -Day of Atonement-October 4th and 5th--This is the one day the High Priest was allowed to enter the Holy of Holies to offer atonement for the sins of the people.--Feast of Tabernacles -Also known as the Feast of Booths-October 9-16th--This celebrates the wanderings of the Israelites in the wilderness.--How are these feasts viewed from a Jewish perspective- What observations can believers in Christ make as it relates to their significance- Marty provided the answers to these questions, as well as questions from listeners, on this edition of Crosstalk.
These stories and more made up this edition of the Round-Up for the week-----Yesterday word came forth that the Senate is postponing the vote on the Respect for Marriage Act -HR8404-.----Utah Republican Senator Mitt Romney suggested that he might vote for an amended version of the Respect for Marriage Act if it contained -carve-outs- for religious liberty.----More than 400 prominent Republicans have signed on to a letter in support of the Respect for Marriage Act. ----Former President Trump alleged via post on Truth Social that the FBI was paying people to steal the 2020 presidential election.----Tuesday evening, -Pillow Guy- Mike Lindell revealed that he was the victim of a surprise subpoena served by the FBI at a Hardees Restaurant in Mankato, Minnesota.----Facebook Chief Mark Zuckerberg has now been caught spying on private messages of those who use the social media platform and reporting them to the FBI.----Fox News host Tucker Carlson has warned that every American should be terrified by the FBI's recent confrontation with an innocent woman in which agents claimed an anonymous tipster told them she had been at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.----Florida-based U.S District Judge Aileen Cannon on Thursday appointed a senior Brooklyn federal judge to serve as special master to independently review documents that the FBI seized from former President Trump's estate.----A senior World Economic Forum official accused Canadian politicians of spreading disinformation apparently for citing founder Klaus Schwab's boast that the globalist organization had penetrated the nation's cabinet.
Despite the fact that Roe has been overturned by the Supreme Court, there is still a war on the unborn. What the major media won't tell you is that according to LifeNews.com, there have been over 100 pro-life organizations, pregnancy centers and churches that have been victims of arson, vandalism and threats since May when someone leaked the draft of the Supreme Court abortion decision.--The radical group, Jane's Revenge, has taken responsibility for at least some of the attacks, and despite the fact that there have been calls for an investigation and arrests by Senate Republicans, this group still fails to make the list of domestic terrorist groups by the Southern Poverty Law Center. --With more on this issue, Jim welcomed Pastor Jim Harden back to Crosstalk. Pastor Harden is the president and CEO of CompassCare Pregnancy Services in New York. He pioneered the first measurable and repeatable medical model in the pregnancy center movement, helping over 650 centers nationwide become more effective at reaching more women and saving more babies from abortion. He has written extensively on medical ethics, executive leadership, and pro-life strategy.--One of the most surprising aspects surrounding this issue has been the comments of Democrat Senator Mazie Hirono of Hawaii who indicated that in light of the Dobbs decision, this is literally a call to arms in our country.--In response, Pastor Harden described Senator Hirono as -late to the game- as arms have already been taken up against pro-life individuals. For example, Jane's Revenge has targeted many pro-life organizations without a single arrest in over 50 attacks on pregnancy centers.
Dennis Behreandt is a writer, the publisher of The New American magazine, and author of Endgame- Covid and the Dark State Quest for Bio-Digital Convergence in a Transhumanist World.--Covid-19 has been the agent for a massive transformation of our society and the freedoms and individual rights we hold dear. Consider all that's unfolded in the government's response to COVID. We have been told which businesses were essential and which were not. The government response has forever impacted our economy, our transportation systems, our energy infrastructure, our educational institutions, our health care system, our free exercise of religion, the censorship of free speech, and a desire for control never before witnessed by many in our lifetime.--Dennis speaks of the 3-fold guiding ideological beliefs behind those in power- 1- The belief that humankind, collectively, is fundamentally flawed, but could be improved by eliminating the flawed and perfecting the rest. 2- There are too many people in the world and this puts the world at risk. 3- New technologies will create new hordes of unnecessary -nonessential- people.--Our guest today addresses these and other issues in his book, End Game- Covid and the Dark State Quest for Bio-Digital Convergence in a Transhumanist World.
Barbara Loe Fisher is President of the National Vaccine Information Center -NVIC-, a non-profit charity she co-founded with parents of DPT vaccine injured children in 1982. NVIC is a national grassroots movement and public information campaign to institute vaccine safety reforms and informed consent protections in the public health system. She has researched, analyzed and publicly articulated the major issues involving the science, policy, law, ethics and politics of vaccination to become one of the world's leading non-medical, consumer advocacy experts on the subject.--Controversy continues to swirl around the COVID shot. Just recently the FDA updated their COVID-19 booster shots to target the omicron variant. They are authorized without undergoing human trials. It's under an Emergency Use Authorization.--Further, as children have gone back to school, the school system in Washington DC put policies in place stating students who are not vaccinated may not attend. The British Government has recently begun paying large sums for those who have been damaged by the COVID-19 shot. And just recently Moderna has brought a lawsuit against Pfizer. What's going on-
In recent episodes of Crosstalk, we have been engaged in a series of topics dealing with escalating war. War on the 2nd Amendment. War on the American Farmer. The War on Moral Values and today- The War on Marriage. --Do you know that right now in Washington, D.C. congress is working to enshrine gay marriage as a legislative act - to codify -write into law- same sex marriage- In fact, the current legislative form HR8404 -Respect for Marriage Act- -misnamed- is anything but that. Our guest, Mat Staver says that HR8404 -will destroy -traditional, biblical- marriage- by making same sex marriage federal law and ultimately rewriting a state's individual sovereignty - leaving room for much much more than we would ever bargain for -i.e. pedophilia, incest, polygamy-. --Crosstalk takes your calls and gives information for you to act. --Mat Staver is the founder - chairman of Liberty Counsel. He is a constitutional attorney with three landmark cases before the U.S. Supreme Court.

Today is a special day for Crosstalk- it marks 35 years of broadcasting over the VCY America Network. We certainly give God the glory and praise for this milestone. We take you back to 35 years ago when the first Crosstalk broadcast and even further than that to share how a talk show was born.--Jim gives a quick but detailed history of how VCY began with Vic Eliason which led to the first call in program which then led to Crosstalk as we know it today. Jim also played 3 clips from that very first Crosstalk, one of which was a clip of the very first caller on Crosstalk, a 12 year old boy who publicly declared that abortion is sin.--During the final half of the program, Jim opened the lines for listeners to share how Crosstalk has impacted them.--A very specific note made by Jim- to God be ALL the glory for VCY's accomplishments.--More information---To obtain your complimentary copy of God's Continuing Miracle- The VCY Story, send an email with your name and mailing address to vcy-vcyamerica.org, or call 1-800-729-9829.
Jim began by sharing these stories with us---Disney Goes Satanic- New Cartoon Features Little Girl Dubbed the Antichrist--Suburban Library Standing by Its Decision to Hold Drag Queen Bingo Night for Teens--Top US Library Group Colludes with Local Librarians to Sneak LGBT Content to Kids--Bisexual Cannibal Film 'Bones and All' Gets 8.5-Minute Standing Ovation at Venice Film Fest--Texas Rangers Only Baseball Team Standing Strong, Refusing to Host Pride Night--...and a few more--The remainder of the program gave provision for listeners to call in and express their views on these matters.
Crosstalk often deals with many -wars- including those on the family, life, conservatives, education, morality, and even the war on God.--The war this Crosstalk dealt with is actually a war on the entire world. Why- If you control the food supply, you control the population, hence the title of this program- The War on the Farmer. --William F. Jasper is senior editor at The New American Magazine. He's an author, journalist and commentator as well as a top investigative reporter and documentary producer. For more than three decades he served as an accredited correspondent at the United Nations in New York and U.N. Summits around the world.--Some say this war on the farmer is really not that at all but is a symptom of Russia's war on Ukraine. Others believe it's due to the COVID pandemic and global supply chain issues. --So who or what does William feel is responsible for this war and is perhaps fostering it- He believes it's the result of policies made by politicians and supported by various institutions like the World Economic Forum, the Council on Foreign Relations and their various -think tank- allies. They have been planning and have already implemented policies that will wipe out many farmers both in the U.S. and around the world.--More specifically, William cited escalating protests in Holland by farmers with tractors blocking streets and manure being dumped on streets as well. The reason for this is that the government, led by Prime Minister Mark Rutte -one of the -darlings- of the World Economic Forum- was implementing one of the most stringent, U.N.-W.E.C. supported clampdowns on farmers. This was said to be due to nitrogen oxide in fertilizers.
Here's your weekly selection of highlights from the Round-Up broadcast-----At Philadelphia last evening, outside Independence Hall, President Biden, with military personnel staged behind him, charged Republican allies of former President Trump with undermining our nation's democratic foundations and urged voters to reject extremism ahead of mid-term elections in November.----Frank Gaffney from the Center for Security Policy described Biden's speech as, -...incitement of violence against millions of supporters of Donald Trump's efforts to make America great again.-----Former President Trump characterized Biden's address as -awkward and angry- on his social media platform, accusing Biden of threatening the United States.----White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre referred to MAGA Republicans as an extremist threat to our democracy.----On Tuesday CNN spent over 7 minutes hyping Republicans trying to hide their alleged extreme position when it comes to abortion. ----The Biden administration is rewriting federal Title IX regulations to force school districts, colleges and universities to allow biological males to compete in women's sports.----The California State Senate passed a bill Wednesday making it a sanctuary state for children seeking transgender medical treatment, even without the permission of parents.----Students in a California school district are being taught that there are 10 sexual orientations and 8 genders in the left's latest push to dismantle family and traditional values.--More Information--https---www.federalregister.gov-documents-2022-07-12-2022-13734-nondiscrimination-on-the-basis-of-sex-in-education-programs-or-activities-receiving-federal
On January 20th, 2021, as the nation looked on, Joe Biden place his hand on the Bible and took the oath of office to become president of the United States. It was to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of our nation.--In that Constitution is something called The Bill of Rights. Part of that is the 2nd Amendment that courts have previously affirmed. In other words, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Sadly, this individual right is under attack...from our president---Returning to Crosstalk with the latest news concerning 2nd Amendment issues was Mike Hammond. Mike is the legislative counsel for Gun Owners of America.--President Biden views gun violence as a public health epidemic. He wants to-----Ban the manufacture and sale of assault weapons and high capacity magazines.---Regulate possession of existing assault weapons under the National Firearms Act.---Buy back the assault weapons and high-capacity magazines already in our communities.---Reduce stockpiling of weapons.---Require background checks for all gun sales.---Close other loopholes in the federal background check system.---Reinstate the Obama-Biden policy to keep guns out of the hands of certain people unable to manage their affairs for mental reasons.---Close the Hate Crimes Loophole.---Close the Charleston Loophole.---Close the Fugitive from Justice Loophole created by the Trump Administration.---Pledged to end the online sale of firearms, ammunition kits and even gun parts.---Put America on the path to ensuring 100- of firearms sold in America are -smart guns.----Require gun owners to safely store their weapons.---Stop -ghost guns.-
Below is a small selection from the stories Jim reported on in our continuing series- What in the world- --Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has once again criticized the pro-life movement, calling its efforts to save unborn children, -sinful,- during a round-table discussion at the University of California-San Francisco to mark Women's Equality Day. --A Nebraska teenager allegedly aborted her viable, late-term unborn baby at home via abortion drugs with the help of her mother and is being charged as an adult. The two allegedly buried, burned and then reburied the aborted baby's body with the help of a third person.--A move to have the VA provide abortion services---The gross negligence of two Rhode Island emergency medical technicians is alleged to have contributed to the death of a premature baby born in a toilet.--A panel of federal judges has decided that the federal Americans with Disabilities Act -ADA- should be interpreted to accommodate gender dysphoria.--A Yale professor will lead a team seeking to dismantle racism inherent in video games.--Masked Antifa members armed with AR-15 rifles and hand guns showed up to guard what was billed as a kid-friendly drag show at a North Texas distillery.--An Illinois school district is profusely apologizing after a minister asked God to bless the facility and staff during a special ceremony commemorating the launch of the semester. --During a speech in Pennsylvania, President Joe Biden issued a message for brave, right-wing Americans saying they need something more than a gun to fight against the United States, giving the example of an F-15 fighter jet as something to use instead.
There are numerous issues plaguing our nation these days and one of them is the proliferation of the LGBTQ- movement. The agenda they laid out many years go was branded as satire, yet we see this agenda being fulfilled in numerous ways across America today.--For example, during this past month of June, our government got involved via every branch of the military as they celebrated pride month. The public education system continues to push this agenda. Entertainers are not only including this agenda in their performances but also through their social media channels. Sadly, this agenda is also being adopted by churches. --The Bible isn't silent on this issue. In Genesis 18-20, God described the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah as very grievous and by the way, that was not the sin of not being hospitable enough. How long will we continue in this direction while avoiding the warnings of God, such as we read about not only in Genesis but other areas such as Luke 17 -beginning in verse 26----Returning to Crosstalk for an update on the LGBTQ- movement, Jim welcomed Peter LaBarbera. Peter is the founder and president of Americans for Truth.--Here's a brief selection of points discussed on this broadcast---Last week a federal appeals court in Texas protected the religious beliefs and convictions of healthcare professionals as the Biden administration was trying to force them to perform so-called gender transition procedures. --The World Boxing Council has banned gender confused men from competing against women.--HR8404 -the so-called Respect for Marriage Act- that federalizes Obergefell v. Hodges.
Ken Cuccinelli is the national chairman of the Election Transparency Initiative. He previously was the acting director of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and then as the acting deputy secretary for the Department of Homeland Security. He was a leading spokesman for the administration on immigration, election security and homeland security issues. He served in state government in the Virginia Senate from 2002-2010 and as Virginia's attorney general from 2010-2014.--Ken was asked by Jim that if he could give a letter grade to the issue of election security and integrity in America, what would that grade be- He said he'd give a C or possibly a C- in some parts of the country. Then again, he noted that he'd give some parts of the nation less than a C as well.--He explained his answer based upon the following- There are 51 election systems in our country. Of course these are broken down by states and has been this way since the Constitution was ratified. There have been some exceptions that include the appropriate implementation of civil rights in states where blacks were denied the opportunity to vote. --This works to our advantage in terms of election security where someone from the outside might attempt election tampering. If there's an effort to hack one state, then they've hacked one state. So if the efforts to nationalize our elections were to happen, you immediately lose that insulation that comes from having the diversification via 51 different election systems. In other words, under a monolithic, nationalized system, if an enemy hacks that system, they've hacked the whole thing. --Ken explained that election systems have been largely ignored.
Unprecedented actions have transpired in just the past several weeks. Joining Jim to sort through them and to bring some clarity and balance on these issues was Alex Newman. Alex is an award-winning international freelance journalist, author, researcher, educator and consultant. He's senior editor for The New American and contributes to other publications as well. He is author of Crimes of the Educators and Deep State- The Invisible Government Behind the Scenes. He is Founder of Liberty Sentinel. --Conversation began with Alex commenting on the weaponizing of the FBI to engage in a raid on Mar-a-Lago and the implications of this action on our protections that we take for granted.--Other points of discussion included---An audio clip of Chuck Schumer with Rachel Maddow of MSNBC in January of 2017 discussing the reach and power of the American intelligence community.--A journalist shares her experience that demonstrates the power and reach of the FBI.--The weaponization of the IRS through 87,000 additional police academy-style agents.--The so-called Inflation Reduction Act contains multiple references to carbon dioxide -the gas of life- as being pollution. --Wellesley, Massachusetts, Police Chief Jack Pilecki believes climate change is a crime against our planet. Is this a sign that we are headed toward people being charged for crimes against the environment---Student Loan Forgiveness-Does President Biden have the power to do this- One year ago Nancy Pelosi said no- Alex believes this is passing debt from those who amassed it onto taxpayers who aren't responsible for it.
Below are several highlights from Jim's look at news events from this past week. Stories included-----According to the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, President Biden's student debt forgiveness plan will cost U.S. taxpayers between 440 and 600 billion dollars over the next 10 years.----Larry Summers, a top Democrat economist, warns that Biden's debt forgiveness plan will cause even more inflation.----Nancy Pelosi said in 2021 that the president does not have the power of debt forgiveness. Instead, this has to be an act of Congress.----U.S. magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart rejected the Department of Justice's argument Monday to keep the Mar-a-Lago search warrant affidavit under wraps saying the government has the burden of proof to show why parts of the affidavit must be sealed. Today the Justice Department filed its proposed redactions to its affidavit that explains the reason for the unprecedented search of Trump's Florida estate, but it's unclear when or if parts of the affidavit will be made public.----After filing a motion to halt the Justice Department review of items from the Mar-a-Lago raid, former President Trump fired off a statement denouncing the violation of his rights under the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution.----WMAR TV -Baltimore's ABC affiliate- said the U.S. Postal Service facility found a tray of undelivered mail that included 26 blank ballots from 2020. ----Some 5,000 Texans who used a P.O. box as a voter registration address, will likely be able to cast a ballot in the state's mid-term election after a federal judge blocked a 2021 state election law.
Pastor Jim Harden is president and CEO of CompassCare Pregnancy Services in New York. Jim pioneered the first measurable and repeatable medical model in the pregnancy center movement, helping over 650 centers nationwide become more effective at reaching more women and saving more babies from abortion. He has written extensively on medical ethics, executive leadership, and pro-life strategy.--On July 12th, Pastor Harden appeared on Crosstalk and gave details concerning how his pregnancy care facility was victimized on June 7th by Jane's Revenge, a domestic terrorist group.--Basically, the overturning of Roe set off a pro-abortion crime wave, the first being the firebombing of a Madison, WI. pro-life organization. Jane's Revenge took responsibility and gave pro-life pregnancy centers 30 days to shut down or face the consequences of continued violence. --After 30 days, the Buffalo, N.Y., CompassCare facility was attacked with multiple incendiary devices resulting in the need to be gutted and rebuilt. Jane's Revenge graffiti was painted on the side of the building. A couple of days later Jane's Revenge released another communique taking responsibility for the firebombing while also communicating that if CompassCare didn't shut down, things wouldn't be so easily cleaned up as fire and graffiti. In other words, they were giving a murder threat.--Undaunted, CompassCare continued to help women in the moment of their crisis and 52 days later, their facility was back up and running.--Planned Parenthood had a site in Kalamazoo, Michigan, that was attacked at the end of July. Within 4 days there was a multi-agency response in which a suspect was found and arrested.
The number of fentanyl overdose deaths is skyrocketing. According to Families Against Fentanyl, fentanyl deaths have doubled since 2019. They report that fentanyl poisoning is now the number one cause of death in adults 18-45 with over 64,000 deaths for the year ending in April 2021. --As a whole, drug overdose deaths surpassed 100,000 per year for the first time in 2021. --According to a press release from Congressman Glenn Grothman, during April through June of this year, about 3,115 pounds of fentanyl was seized at the southern border. That 3 month apprehension was more than the total amount seized in all of fiscal year 2019 and equivalent to over 750 million lethal doses, enough to kill the entire American population twice.--Appearing on Crosstalk to discuss this issue was Mark Shaw. Mark is the director of counseling at Grace Fellowship Church in Florence, Kentucky, and is the founder of The Addiction Connection. He is a certified alcohol and drug addiction counselor. He's an ordained pastor, speaker, teacher and author of multiple books such as The Heart of Addiction, How Not to Raise an Addict and many others including the recently released booklet entitled, Fentanyl.-Fentanyl is a very powerful, synthetic opioid drug. While perhaps not as widely known as marijuana, heroin, LSD or cocaine, it's been around since the '60's. People typically add it to whatever they're currently taking while still others end up taking fentanyl that gets placed into drugs without their knowing about it.--According to Mark, fentanyl is 50 times stronger than heroin and 100 times stronger than morphine. As little as 2 milligrams can cause an overdose.
What good does your phone call or e-mail to legislators make- Does it really make a difference when you appear before groups such as a school board or city council- What you may not be aware of is that push-back like this is definitely having an impact. -Joining Jim with details surrounding some examples of how push-back is making a difference was Mat Staver. Mat is the founder - chairman of Liberty Counsel. He is a constitutional attorney with three landmark cases before the U.S. Supreme Court.--The broadcast began with breaking news that Dr. Anthony Fauci, who was going to step down at the end of the Biden administration, is now accelerating his departure as he's announced he'll be leaving in December of this year. Mat believes this may have to do with the change that is likely to be taking place in both the House and the Senate in November. After all, it's likely Fauci will be investigated for policies going all the way back to the Wuhan lab and his funding of -gain of function- research.--Concerning COVID shot mandate victories...--North Shore University Health System----North Shore denied all religious accommodations across the board. They gave some medical exemptions yet denied the religious ones. Once Liberty Counsel pointed out that this would be discriminatory and a violation of the law, North Shore even began revoking some of the medical exemptions.--Liberty Counsel filed a federal lawsuit and the health system decided to settle via the nation's first class-wide settlement against a private employer over the COVID mandates. It'll be over 10.3 million dollars and involve about 500 healthcare workers.
Below is a brief look at some of the stories that Jim presented for listeners this week- ----The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are relaxing their COVID-19 guidelines essentially giving unvaccinated people the same guidance as vaccinated people.----With the new CDC guidelines that essentially acknowledge that people who are vaccinated are not protected from infection by COVID-19, attorneys who have filed lawsuits on behalf of military members, students, healthcare workers and others argue that there's no longer a case for mandates.----The U.S. District Court of Florida has provided class action relief and granted a class-wide preliminary injunction from the unlawful federal COVID shot mandate on behalf of those who are inactive or reserve service in the United States Marine Corps.----An analysis of internal documents found that 44- of the pregnant women who participated in the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine trials suffered miscarriages.----California's Sixth District Court of Appeals decided Monday to free a church in San Jose from well over -100,000 in fines for breaking COVID-19 rules.----When the COVID-19 vaccine was rolled out, the CEO of Pfizer touted a South Africa trial he said was evidence that the shots would be 100- effective in preventing infection. On Monday, however, he tested positive for COVID-19 after receiving 4 doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.----Also on Monday, Lloyd Austin, Secretary of the Department of Defense, tested positive for COVID as has First Lady Jill Biden.----U.S. life insurance companies have reported an overwhelming and unexplainable increase in all deaths among 18-49 year old individuals.
Dr. Richard Schmidt is the Pastor of Union Grove Baptist Church and also heads Prophecy Focus Ministries. He is the speaker on the WVCY-TV program Prophecy Focus and the radio program Prophecy Unfolding. Prior to his current pastoral ministry, he spent 32 years in law enforcement including becoming Acting Sheriff of Milwaukee County in 2017 until his retirement in 2019. He is the author of several books including the one being discussed today, Tribulation to Triumph- The Olivet Discourse.--For thousands of years, mankind has been fascinated with the question of what will happen in the future. For answers people turn to their local neighborhood palm reader shop. Some follow their daily horoscope. Psychics abound on many television channels, by telephone, and online. Just type the word -psychic- into a search engine and in half a second, 230 million responses will come up.--There is great interest in the future. However, one place that people have refused to look at is the pages of Scripture. Jesus Himself was asked by his disciples about future events. Our program today focuses primarily on two chapters of Scripture- Matthew 24 and 25. Here Jesus addresses this important issue in what has been coined -the Olivet Discourse.-
Jim continued along yesterday's theme of the recent raid on Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago property and the fall-out since. Here is a sample of the headlines---Garland Waited Weeks to Authorize Raid at Mar-a-Lago--Former DNI Ratcliffe- FBI, DOJ Have Become the Enforcement Arm of the Democratic Party--Rep. Jim Jordan- 14 FBI Agents Have Come to Our Office as Whistleblowers--Trump Exposes Laughable Demand FBI Made During Raid, and They Were Gloriously Shut Down--Rigged by Hillary- Trump Raid Pulled Off by Russiagate FBI Agents--Boomerang- DOJ Admission It Over-Collected Evidence in Trump Raid Creates New Legal Drama--Trump- FBI Raid Grabbed Everything Like a Common Criminal--FBI Is Terrified After Mar-a-Lago Raid Backfires, Now Obsessively Combing Through Social Media Profiles for Signs of Agitation--Trump Tells Fox News US Is in Very Dangerous Place Following FBI Raid of Mar-a-Lago Residence--FBI Barricades Headquarters in DC--Former NYPD Chief Fears Deep State Might Assassinate Trump--Jim concluded the program with a statement made by the late Adrian Rogers regarding some Christians' reluctance to involve themselves in politics. If Christians stay out of government affairs, who does that leave to run the country-
William Federer is a nationally known speaker, historian, author, and president of Amerisearch, Inc. He is the speaker on The American Minute daily broadcast. He has authored numerous books including, America's God and Country Encyclopedia of Quotations, Who is the King in America-, and Socialism- The Real History From Plato to the Present. It has the subtitle How the Deep State Capitalizes on Crises to Consolidate Control.--The nation continues to reel from the FBI's raid upon the home of former President Donald Trump in Mar-a-Lago. It's been called an unprecedented action. The FBI Director Christopher Wray and the U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland publicly acknowledged their approval of the filing of the search warrant application. President Biden denies having any advanced notice of the raid. Kevin McCarthy, the House Minority Leader, stated, -The Department of Justice has reached an intolerable state of weaponized politicization.- He also stated, -Attorney General Garland, preserve your documents and clear your calendar.---The Russian Collusion Hoax failed, the attempts to remove Donald Trump from office by impeachment failed not once but twice, and some are viewing this as an attempt to disqualify him from office again. Some have accused him of espionage, some have called for him to be imprisoned, and others have hinted at even harsher penalties. Marco Rubio is warning that those who are supportive of President Trump could be next.--While such actions may be unprecedented in America, they are not unprecedented in the world. But where has this happened before- Has our nation been lost as a constitutional republic-
Jason Woolford is the President and Executive Director of Mission Cry.--There is much troubling news surrounding us today. We see the unraveling of the constitutional framework of our government. We observe the escalating crime and violence, and morals are in a freefall. The breaking news alerts are going off- another shooting, another country at war, a government run amok.--As believers, we know our only hope is Jesus. We receive great comfort and encouragement from the Word of God amidst these troublesome times. God's Word is a lamp unto our feet, and a light unto our path. God's Word is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. It is God's Word that tells us what is right, what is not right, how to get right and how to stay right.--But imagine what it would be like to not have a copy of the Scriptures- not to have available God's Word, no pages to turn to in times of distress, and no verses to look at to soothe a hurting soul. Further imagine at the same time that the church to which you belong has no copies of the Scriptures, and your pastor has to rely upon his own knowledge of what he has heard preached. You say impossible---We are so numb to what's happening around the world. While we are still a land of plenty and we've got copies of the Scriptures all around us, there are many people around the world longing to have their own copy of the Scriptures. Just think how many different copies of the Bible are in your personal library let alone in your own home. Would you be willing to share from your plenty with those who have none- That's the mission of the ministry we're speaking with today.
Filling in for Jim Schneider, Dalton shed light on the following news stories-----In an op-ed from columnist Alan Bergstein, he believes we are now a fascist, dictatorial swampland.----Florida Senator Marco Rubio presented brutally honest comments as he spoke with Sean Hannity of Fox News concerning Monday's raid on Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate.----Audio from Attorney General Merrick Garland explaining the reasons for the search at Mar-a-Lago.----Many lawmakers already expressing doubt about the necessity of the raid on Mar-a-Lago.----Just hours after the raid at Mar-a-Lago took place, a campaign-style ad was released on social media calling America a nation in decline. The ad vows that America will become great again.----Senator Ted Cruz of Texas comments on a reconciliation bill that would add 87,000 new IRS agents. He also commented on student vaccination and how those not vaccinated would not be allowed to come to school in Washington, D.C.----So-called Inflation Reduction Act called a -massive power grab- by Senator Cruz.----Tim Michels defeated Rebecca Kleefisch for GOP governor nomination in Wisconsin.----Callers rounded out the program with their comments.
Here's your weekly selection of highlights from the Crosstalk news desk as presented by Jim-----The U.S. Senate is likely to delay a vote on the so-called Respect for Marriage Act until September.----Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin appears to be -back-peddling- on his apparent support for the Respect for Marriage Act.----85 national and state organizations have signed a letter written by the Alliance Defending Freedom sent to U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell denouncing the ironically named Respect for Marriage Act -HR8404- urging him and his U.S. Senate colleagues to reject it.----Senator Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona announced that she was on board with the tax increases and increased spending contained in the falsely named Inflation Reduction Act.----Several state coal groups have blasted Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia for sponsoring a bill that will severely threaten the industry.----After 5 years of litigation and a unanimous U.S. Supreme Court ruling, the Christian flag flew at the Boston City Hall Plaza public forum flag pole. ----The Biden administration declared the current breakout of Monkeypox a public health emergency. ----Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins issued an emergency declaration this morning due to the Monkeypox outbreak as the number of cases topped 200.----Almost 100- of Monkeypox cases have occurred in men, and according to the WHO, at least 95- of those have occurred due to homosexual activity.----President Biden announced that Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri was killed in a U.S. drone strike in Kabul.
From Kindergarten on there's a push taking place to introduce children to the idea of denying science by questioning their biological sex. This is fanning the flames of gender dysphoria and creating an increase in the number of young people claiming to be transgender.--In the past we've dealt with the threat from the Biden administration to withhold school lunch funding from schools that don't allow biological boys who are gender confused from participating on girls sports teams and vice-versa. This also impacts the use of restrooms, locker rooms, overnight field trips and more.--In addition, the Biden administration's Department of Health and Human Services is attempting to alter Section 1557 and redefine sex discrimination so broadly that it's threatening the ability of doctors to practice medicine according to solid medical evidences and their own principles of faith.--Helping bring clarity to this issue, Crosstalk welcomed Dr. Jeffrey Barrows. He's the Senior Vice President of Bioethics and Public Policy for Christian Medical - Dental Associations. Dr. Barrows is an obstetrician-gynecologist, author, educator, medical ethicist and speaker. He completed his medical degree at the Des Moines College of Osteopathic Medicine and Surgery in 1978 and his residency training in obstetrics and gynecology at Doctors Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. He's also very engaged in the fight against human trafficking.--Get more information and find out how this will affect you when you review this vital Crosstalk broadcast.
Extreme deception is taking place in our world today through areas such as news, entertainment and even religion. The apostle Paul warned Timothy about this -2 Timothy 3-13- where he talks about evil men and seducers who go about deceiving and being deceived. John also gave a warning in his second epistle, warning that many deceivers have entered into the world who don't confess that Jesus has come in the flesh.--Addressing the form of deception that this Crosstalk dealt with may seem unloving to some but it was put forth with genuine, sincere love and concern. The main deception dealt with on this broadcast is the claim that the Roman Catholic Church is the one true church founded by Christ 2,000 years ago. --Returning to Crosstalk to deal with this issue was Mike Gendron. Mike is the founder and director of Proclaiming the Gospel Ministry. Mike was a devout Roman Catholic for over 3 decades and was taught to rely upon the authority of the church above all else. Mike searched the Scriptures and was amazed to find that what he read in Scripture contradicted the teaching and tradition of the church he had been a part of for so long. He trusted Jesus as his Savior and now the Bible has become his sole authority in all matters of faith. Mike is the author of the books, Preparing for Eternity and Contending for the Gospel and has produced numerous videos with warnings concerning false teachings vs. the truth of the Scriptures.-The true church is not a denomination or a building. Mike communicated that it's an assembly of born-again Christians who have faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and God has called these people out of the world as His own possession.
Last Wednesday, Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia appeared to succumb to pressure to support a revived version of the -Build Back Better- bill. This plan is deceptively wrapped up in a new package called the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022.--What's in this legislation and why is Manchin turning his back on the people of West Virginia- Is this just another step toward the Great Reset---Joining Jim to investigate this latest development was Peter Rykowski. Peter is a research associate and writer for The New American.
Individuals like President Biden insisted that if you're fully vaccinated and boosted you can't get COVID. He followed that plan yet tested positive. Why- --Dr. Deborah Birx, former White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator, said recently that she wasn't surprised that those who were fully vaccinated and boosted are getting COVID.--Statistics coming forth from the UK indicate that those fully vaccinated accounted for more than 90- of the deaths attributed to COVID-19. Why is this happening- --Returning to Crosstalk to offer some answers was Twila Brase. Twila is president and co-founder of Citizens' Council for Health Freedom. Twila is a registered nurse, a certified public health nurse, and author of the eight-time award-winning book, Big Brother in the Exam Room- The Dangerous Truth About Electronic Health Records. She's the speaker on the daily Health Freedom Minute heard on stations across the nation.--Twila noted that if you talk to specialists, they say everyone will get COVID. It's just a matter of which variant you'll get. So what about the president who was fully vaccinated and boosted- He got COVID anyway and was given Paxlovid. That drug is known for its rebound effect. The president was declared free and clear after five days but Twila wasn't so certain. She felt he would rebound and he did. So it's not a case where he's contracted a new case of COVID. She believes it never completely cleared his system in the first place.--It's always an information-packed hour when Twila joins the program and this edition of Crosstalk was no exception.
With this Friday comes more news stories than Jim could address in an hour- Here is a sampling of the headlines---- Gov. Asking Everyone to Pray as 16 Dead, Cities Reeling from Most Devastating Floods in Kentucky's History-- Health Care Workers Settle COVID Shot Mandate for -10.3 Million-- Studies Reveal Ivermectin Greatly Reduces COVID Mortality-- NYC Employees Fired for Not Getting COVID Vaccine Grows to More Than 1,750-- Court Rules Pastor Artur Pawlowski Wrongfully Jailed for Defying COVID Lockdown to Hold Church Service-- China Locking Down One Million People Due to Four Asymptomatic COVID Cases-- Kim Jong Un Says North Korea Fully Ready to Use Nuclear Bombs at Any Time-- As China Gains Footholds in America, Congress is Sleeping at the Wheel, Former Pentagon Official Says-- Trump Was Right- China Placed Huawei Equipment Atop Cell Towers on Purchased Farm Land Near U.S. Military Bases - Capable of Disrupting and Capturing Signals-- China Trying to Recruit Spies Inside U.S. Federal Reserve, Says GOP Senator-- With Strategic Petroleum Reserve at Lowest Level Since 1985, U.S. Sells Stockpiled Oil to China-- 80- Religious Conservative Groups Urge McConnell, GOP to Oppose Gay Marriage Codification Bill-- Leftist Senators Hopeful They Can Find Five Republicans to Pass Same-Sex Marriage Polygamy Bill-- Vice President Harris Boldly Declares That She is a Woman-- 43 Abortion Centers Have Closed or Stopped Killing Babies So Far, 7 States are Abortion-Free-- ...... and several more--Listen, share, and PRAY-----More information---Senate Switchboard 202-224-3121

She is speaking today as an independent physician, not as a spokesperson for any healthcare system, pharmaceutical company, insurance plan or political party. She is a patient advocate.--This past weekend the Director-General of the World Health Organization, Tedros Ghebreyesus, declared monkeypox to be a -public health emergency of international concern.- Today, Politico indicated from their sources that the Biden Administration's Health - Human Services is expected as soon as at the end of this week to also declare monkeypox a public health emergency. They are saying the decision is not final yet, but are looking into options. Our guest today comes with a warning about the dictatorial powers that go along with declaring this an -emergency.-
Dr. Tara Sander Lee is the Senior Fellow and Director of Life Sciences at the Charlotte Lozier Institute, an organization dedicated to policies and practices to protect the sanctity of human life. She is a scientist with 20 years of experience in academic and clinical medicine with an emphasis on the cause of pediatric disease.

Her chapter is -Knit Together in a Mother's Womb- The Biology of Prenatal Development.- She also served as molecular pathology inspector for the College of American Pathologists and scientific consultant for various entities including the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner, Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, and TAI Diagnostics.--The Biden Administration has become unglued since the United States Supreme Court affirmed that there is no right to abortion granted in our Constitution. As a result, the President is trying to use executive orders or rule making from his cabinet departments in an effort to force hospitals and doctors to violate the Hippocratic Oath and perform this gruesome procedure which takes the life of an innocent baby. Protests have taken place in cities across the country. Even in small town America, 2 or 3 will gather on a downtown street corner bearing signs which read -my body, my choice.-
Tom DeWeese is President of the American Policy Center. He is one the nation's leading advocates of individual liberty, free enterprise, private property rights, personal privacy, back-to-basics education and American sovereignty and independence and protecting our Constitutionally-guaranteed rights. He is author of Sustainable- The War on Free Enterprise, Private Property and Individuals and Erase, a political novel.--President Biden is being urged, prodded and pushed to declare a climate emergency. Al Gore in an interview with Chuck Todd on Meet the Press said in regard to climate change that the public sentiment is changing but that -democracy is broken.- He is calling for the filibuster to be eliminated, indicating -we have big money playing much too large a role in our politics.---Al Gore is not alone as CNSnews.com reports the special presidential envoy for climate, John Kerry, also expressed regret that opposition in Congress has stymied climate legislation. He told the BBC, -We are moving forward but we're not making enough progress and we're not moving forward fast enough. So we are behind where we need to be to avoid the worst consequences of the climate crisis.- He points to the summer heatwaves and wildfires.--Others in the Biden Administration are talking about us being in an energy transition. A climate alarmism group is planning to shut down city streets in Washington DC in an effort to put pressure upon Joe Biden to declare a climate emergency. While the Biden Administration has taken certain steps, it has not declared a climate emergency. However the President indicated, -Climate change is literally an existential threat to our nation and to the world.-
Mat Staver is Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. He is a constitutional attorney with three landmark cases before the U.S. Supreme Court.--The sanctity of marriage is under attack by the current Congress. Last week 47 Republican House members abandoned their party platform, traditional values, and the very essence of marriage as ordained by God to join forces with liberal Democrats in an effort to destroy the Defense of Marriage Act which was passed with a large bipartisan majority and signed into law by former President Bill Clinton.--It appeared that's where the act would stop until now as steam is picking up in the U.S. Senate. It seems a number of Republican senators are also willing to jump ship as the ship plots a course to run aground to the peril of the nation.--More information---LC.org
Here's the line-up of stories from the early portion of this week's program-----Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin says he will support the House Gay marriage bill.----On the ballot for the Kansas primary on August 2nd is a state constitutional amendment that may determine once and for all whether citizens in Kansas believe that abortion is a right. ----Planned Parenthood challenged Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich's motion to enact a near total ban on abortion.----Texas, led by Attorney General Ken Paxton, has sued the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services over its attempt to transform every emergency room in the nation into a walk-in abortion clinic.----Some radical leftists and progressive members of Congress were arrested outside the Supreme Court on Tuesday afternoon for protesting the recent decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. ----A pro-life Christian who was fired from Southwest Airlines for expressing her views won 5.1 million dollars in a lawsuit against her former employer and workers union.----House Democrats blocked a resolution that condemns the violence that has targeted dozens of pro-life pregnancy centers and churches since May. ----Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer just confirmed that she is pro-abortion and not pro-choice. She recently signed an executive order promoting abortion, but on Wednesday she vetoed 21.4 million in funding for pregnancy centers that help women find abortion alternatives and adoption programs. ----U.S. Senators Mike Rounds, Joni Ernst and 8 of their senate colleagues introduced a bill to designate June as the Month of Life.
Jim began with news that the White House announced this morning that President Biden checked positive for COVID-19. He's experiencing mild symptoms and is now taking Paxlovid. Jim encouraged listeners to pray for him.--Just after 5pm this past Monday, VCY America received an alert from the Family Research Council indicating that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was scheduling a vote on legislation to codify so-called same-sex marriage the following day.--In an overwhelmingly bipartisan vote in both houses of Congress, the Defense of Marriage Act was approved in 1996 and signed into law by then President Bill Clinton. But now, because of the SCOTUS decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, there's concern from the -left- that other measures they embrace might be overturned.--Pelosi acted very quickly to bring about this vote in the House. Within about 24 hours of its introduction, they passed it -known as HR8404- by a vote of 267-157. In the Senate, the legislation is known as S.4556.--HR8404 says, -It is to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act and ensure respect for state regulation of marriage and for other purposes.- Actually, it appears to disrespect the state regulation of marriage. After all, if a state has a defense of marriage act in place, this law would negate that, saying that if any state allows for the marriage of two individuals, they must accept so-called same-sex marriage.--This program is highlighted by comments from a column by Todd Starnes, one from the Washington Stand, related headlines from Lifesite News, FRC Action and more, including Jim's listing of the 47 Republicans that joined Democrats to thumb their noses at the biblical definition of marriage.
President Biden returned this past weekend from his Middle East trip where he visited Israel and Saudi Arabia. He was criticized for things like using -fist bumps- rather than shaking hands or giving out hugs like he did during his recent NATO summit visit. He was also criticized for being humiliated by not receiving cooperation on energy issues with Saudi Arabia.--Returning to Crosstalk to bring his perspective on these and other related Middle East news topics was David Rubin. David is former mayor of Shiloh, Israel, is the author of seven books including, Confronting Radicals- What America Can Learn from Israel. He's the founder and president of Shiloh Israel Children's Fund, established after he and his then three-year-old son were wounded in a terror attack.
The declaration of health emergencies from governments around the world in response to COVID have given us a picture of the massive control measures that governments are willing to take to put them in control. Some would say, it's as if it were planned. --Even now there are those pushing our president to declare a health emergency over reproductive care -abortion- or even global climate change. Still others are watching as warnings come out about new COVID variants that may require additional actions by government.--Does all of this signal a move toward world government- After all, the Vatican has pushed for what's known as The Great Rest while the U.N. has pushed for veto power over the U.S. Supreme Court.--In light of all this, Jim was reminded of the movie that was released 50 years ago. It's called, A Thief in the Night. This movie depicted a scenario of Bible-based, end-time events.--Joining Jim to review this classic Christian film and it's even greater relevance today was Rich Christiano. Rich is a film writer, director - producer. In 2002, he along with his brother Dave formed Five - Two pictures. Rich is a writer, director and producer of multiple films such as Time Changer, Unidentified, The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry, A Matter of Faith and Play the Flute.--Rich began by reviewing some historical background information on A Thief in the Night and his relationship to the late Russel Doughten, the executive producer. From there the discussion moved to audio clips, the first being the attention-grabbing opening of the film. Through such clips, listeners get a chance to ponder whether or not what's taking place today signals a soon coming rapture.
During a recent search on the Internet, Jim found the following topics that caught his attention. One was titled- 10 Reasons Why Islam is the True Religion. Another was called, 7 Proofs to Know Islam is the Truth and another one had the title, Evidence Islam is Truth- 159 Articles.--So there's all this information alleging that Islam is the truth. However, according to Usama Dakdok, Islam is anything but truth. In fact, he believes Islam has distorted the truth. --Usama Dakdok is the founder of the Straight Way of Grace Ministry. He's the speaker on the daily radio broadcast, Revealing the Truth About Islam. He speaks fluent Arabic and has translated the Qur'an into English. He is the author of Exposing the Truth about the Qur'an and Exposing the Truth About Jihad.--Speaking concerning deception, Usama began by noting that when you talk about -miracles- in Islam, Allah is very clear in the Qur'an that he didn't send to Mohammed any miracles. However, Western Muslims, particularly in about the past 20 years, are creating miracles for Mohammed from everywhere and he noted that if people really knew the truth behind it, they'd not only leave Islam, they'd laugh at it.--Jim then had Usama talk about an illustration from this month. It's the festival of sacrifice known as Eid al-Adha. The Muslim justification for this festival is derived from chapter 37 in the Qur'an. In some respects this account mimics that of Abraham's sacrifice from Genesis 22. --Review this edition of Crosstalk to find out what the differences are between the two accounts and why they are critical as they pertain to the believer's salvation in Christ.
