    In this episode of the National Crawford Roundtable we review California's Assembly Bill 2098, which makes it illegal to spread "misinformation" about Covid 19, and to where this could possibly lead not just California, but the Nation as a whole.  We will get into the details of what it is and what it does. How will this affect the relationship between a patient and their doctor?  What about the "off label" use of drugs--could this change how medications are alternatively used? Could the U.S. be headed into an unprecedented age of censorship?  What other kinds of perceived "misinformation" could be included in similar bills?  Can this bill affect this podcast, or other similar broadcasts?  What about parent's rights--could it mean the loss of parental control if parents disagree with what is currently being normalized?

    In this episode of the National Crawford Roundtable the guys follow up on last week's discussion about illegal immigration with the Martha's Vineyard controversy, created when Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Texas Governor Greg Abbott transported migrants from the southern border to Democrat run sanctuary states Chicago and New York--and in particular to upper crusty Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts. President Joe Biden has been relocating hundreds of thousands of migrants over the last year and a half--why are liberals not considering that a "humanitarian crisis"?

    In this episode of the National Crawford Roundtable we discuss multiple issues about illegal immigration.  Was Texas Governor Greg Abbott right to bus illegal immigrants to Democrat-run "Sanctuary Cities"?  Are these Sanctuary City Mayors like those in Washington D.C., NYC and Chicago being hypocrites for complaining?  What about the humanitarian crisis consequences of open-border policies: more dead migrants who die making the trip; the selling of children into the sex and slave trade, more rapes of migrant women from Coyotes and smugglers; drug cartels, Coyotes, and Human Traffrickers getting rich; Fentanyl and other opioids flooding the U.S. and feuling U.S. drug dealers and increasing overdose deaths; more criminals, gangs, drug and gun runners coming into the U.S., and Islamic terrorists more easily able to enter the U.S?  Isn't it gime we more strongly give Trump his due regarding his successfully negotiated "Remain in Mexico" Policy, the wall building efforts, tightened border security measures, etc.?

The second half of the podcast is a lively discussion regarding the timing of Dr. Fauci's upcoming retirement and the legacy he leaves behind.  Is the timing of his announcement suspect?  Should there be Congressional Hearings on Fauci?  Did Fauci really "follow the science" or did he follow Leftist politics?  What about Fauci's flip-flops on wearing masks, mandating vaccines,  shutting down the country, and the danger of COVID to children, among other topics, including his refusal to call for gay bars and LGBTQ+ parades and other functions to be shut down due to Monkeypox?

    In this week's podcast the National Crawford Roundtable does a follow-up discussion on last week's episode about the FBI Mar-a-Lago raid, but go deeper into the potential for a civil uprising from angry conservatives and what appears to clearly be an unequal system of justice in America.  The DOJ just asked a Court to keep it's reasoning for the raid from being released.  There were no raids for Hillary Clinton, Hunter/Joe Biden, nor Sandy Berger, the Clinton National Security Advisor who stole Classified Documents from the National Archives by literally stuffing them in his underwear.  Last month, a Planned Parenthood clinic in Michigan was attacked by a man, who set the building on fire after it was closed for the day and no one was inside, and the DOJ found him in 4 days and arrested him, while over 100 churches and pro-life pregnancy centers have been attacked, vandalized and fire bombed in just the last 3 months yet no arrests have been made in those cases, even though Jane's Revenge, a known domestic terrorist group, has openly claimed credit for many of the attacks.  January 6th protesters are getting several years in prison, many denied bail, many held in solitary confinement after 1 1/2 years yet the DOJ has not gone after BLM or ANTIFA.  Why the disparity?  Are we hitting a boiling point where American conservatives may start to engage in civil unrest over what appears to clearly be unequal justice under the law?

Racial slurs and death threats have been made against Justice Clarence Thomas. There have been attempts to intimidate, kidnap, and murder the Conservative Supreme Court Justices. Why has AG Merrick Garland refused to prosecute the  illegal protestors who were outside of the Conservative Justice's homes? Democrats are falsely claiming that Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney-Barrett lied during their confirmation hearings--is that true?  Should doctors, and women in pro-life states where abortion is illegal be prosecuted?

Should we arm teachers who volunteer and are qualified to use a gun?  Should Christians support the 2nd Amendment?  What about Christians who own/carry guns?  Can gun ownership be conidered unbiblical?  What does the Bible say about being armed?

The guys will also talk about other past mass shootings in the United States.  How widespread is "White supremacy" in the U.S. today?  Is the Brooklyn teenaged shooter really a product of "Fox News" and "right-wing media"?  Or is it actually an example of Democrats and the liberal media eploiting the tragedy to further the narrative that White Supremacy is the #1 existential threat in America?  That Republicans spew racist thetoric and fuel this threat? That we need more censorship of Conservative social media opinions?  And that we need more gun laws?  If Democrats are not using this for political gain then why is President Joe Biden going to  Buffalo, but did not bother to go to other mass shooting sites like Waukesha, Wisconsin where a  racist Black man who had called for violence against White people  drove into a mostly White crowd at a Christmas parade killing 6 and injuring dozens more?  And why didn't Biden visit the New York Subway in April when a racist Black man opened fire in the subway, shooting 10 White people--this, after he had posted his hatred towards and desire to kill White people on Social media platforms?

How serious of an issue is this?  Will it come to the United States?  Might pastors, teachers, talk show hosts and others end up in jail over this?  How will this movement affect parents?

    The 49th anniversary of the landmark Roe v. Wade decision regarding the legalization of abortion in the United States is coming up this Saturday, January 22nd.  The National Crawford Roundtable discusses the abortion issue--what it is, and what it is not.  Do proponents of abortion actually understand what it is they are supporting?  What is fact and what is fiction?  Should abortion be allowed in the cases of rape or incest, and how prevelant is that?  If made illegal would women resort to "backroom" abortions, and what is the truth about that happening in the past and possibly the future?  When does Life really begin?  Is there forgiveness for having had an abortion?  What does the Bible say about abortion?

    This week the National Crawford Roundtable examines the Kyle Rittenhouse case, the 18-year-old who is accused of killing 2 protestors and injuring another during the unrest in Kenosha, Wisconson.  Rittenhouse, then 17 years old, claims he was present to defend the property and lives of the citizens there, and that the shootings were done in self defense. What is it about this case that has conservatives overwhelmingly siding with Rittenhouse, while liberals overwhelmingly oppose Rittenhouse?  Was Rittenhouse wrong to go there?  Was he being couragous or noble?  Regardless of whether he was right or wrong to go there, wasn't it still self defense?  Why is this considered a racially explosive case when Rittenhouse and the 3 people he shot are all white? And what about the prosecutor, pointing an AR-15 rifle at the jury, calling the rioters who were shot "heroes"?

    In this episode of the National Crawford Roundtable the guys talk about counterfeit Christianity and the reinventing of Jesus.  A new poll from Probe Ministries shows almost 70% of self proclaimed "born-again Christians" believe that other religious beliefs can lead souls to Heaven.  This shows a worsening of the Pluralism that was shown to be at 57%, according to a Pew  research Poll of several years ago.  What is driving this belief; how do we explain it?  What about people of other religions in other lands--do they not get a "fair chance"?  What about "good people"--how can they go to Hell?  The guys also call out other common characteristics of today's Counterfeit Christianity.
