A hot spot for religious persecution today, especially against Christians, can be found in China. Opening the show this week is Founder and President of China Aid, Bob Fu (chinaaid.org), who is also a Christian refugee from China. He describes how physical and virtual church gatherings have been banned, millions of people are in reeducation camps, and many people have been arrested and thrown in prison for hosting in-house church meetings and prayer groups. But the silver lining is that when persecution grows, so does the zeal for Christ and the number of Christians.

Since news stories have piled up here in the studio, John, Carol, and Steve convene the Steel Round Table to discuss a variety of important issues. They look at the cold wave that hit Texas and the issues surrounding that, a bill in the House that seems to target only President Trump, the push toward a digital currency, and Andrew Cuomo's rapid decline in the eyes of leftists. They also examine the chaos surrounding postmodernist thinking.

Will the ideological divide continue to widen in America or can we truly keep this the United States? Wrapping up the program this week is Dr. Richard Land (ses.edu), President of Southern Evangelical Seminary. He looks at the growing discontent among fly-over folks at being censored. The media is to blame as they throw gasoline on the fire of division with biased reporting and alternative definitions of words. The education system is to blame as well, teaching children that this is a horrible and racist country. Is there anything we can do to turn this highly divisive tide?

In the past couple of days, John has been a guest on two separate radio stations here in the Inland Northwest. We will play both of his interviews today. First, John was featured on KYMS with Lee Lancaster as he is every month. John and Lee discuss leftist legislation and judicial activism, the church during times of trial, and religious persecution – especially against Christians. He then met with local radio legend Tom Read for his personal program 'It Seems to Me.' John chats with Tom about bias in the media.

Following the incident at the Capitol in January, we began hearing a lot about reeducation camps and deprogramming centers for Trump supporters because they suffered from a supposed psychosis. Sounds an awful lot like what the Soviet Union used to do – and what Communist China does today. Joining us today is Larry Ong (sinoinsider.com), Senior Analyst at Sino Insider, who goes over China's social credit score system, and the CCP's practice of cancelling citizens that don't agree with the party's narrative. Playing a big part in the indoctrination is the media, who, like the communist party, distort the facts to tell their own narrative. Media in the U.S. seem to be mirroring this brainwashing technique.

One of the world's hot spots for religious persecution, especially against Christians, is in China. Joining us today is Founder and President of China Aid, Bob Fu (chinaaid.org), who is also a Christian refugee from China. He describes how religious persecution today under the Chinese Communist Party is the worst it has been since the Cultural Revolution. Physical and virtual church gatherings have been banned, millions of Christians and people from other religious groups are in reeducation camps, and social credit score systems loom over everyone as a means of control. Many people are arrested and thrown in prison for hosting in-house church meetings and prayer groups. But the silver lining is that when persecution grows, so does the zeal for Christ and the number of Christians operating in an underground status.

News stories pile up here in the studio so every once in awhile John, Carol, and Steve sit around and discuss important issues stemming from those stories. On today's podcast, the trio look at the cold wave that hit Texas and the issues surrounding that, a bill in the House that seems to target only one person – former President Trump, the push toward a digital currency, and Andrew Cuomo's view from underneath the bus amid the New York nursing home scandal. They also examine the chaos surrounding postmodernist thinking and do their best to try and define the nebulous term 'whiteness.'

We are facing a critical moment in America's history – will we continue to further the ideological divide or can we truly keep this the United States? Joining us today is Dr. Richard Land (ses.edu), President of Southern Evangelical Seminary. He looks at the growing discontent among fly-over folks at being unheard and censored. And media does nothing but throw gasoline on the fire of division with their biased reporting and alternative definitions of not only the truth but even individual words. The education system is to blame as well, teaching children from a young age that this is a horrible and racist country. Is there anything we can do to turn this highly divisive tide?

HR1 is a new bill in Congress that, if passed, will codify every suspect procedure involved in the 2020 election – vote by mail, no voter ID, no voter roll cleaning, etc. J. Christian Adams (www.publicinterestlegal.org), President of the Public Interest Legal Foundation, joins us briefly to discuss this new bill. Attempts are being made to make that which is illegal legal.

We then transition to Kurt Hyde (thenewamerican.com), contributor to The New American magazine, who offers possible solutions to HR1, moving back to the fairly secure and reasonable voting procedures of the past. Can we have election reform if HR1 passes?

Censorship is running rampant today, but the media, who should be upholding freedom of speech, are instead advocating for more censorship. John Tierney (city-journal.org), Contributor Editor to the City Journal, is with us to discuss the ramp up of censorship since the Capitol violence and the hypocrisy of the media who did nothing when leftists called for violence during the Trump administration. When freedom is ignored, totalitarianism isn't too far behind.

Finally this week, Palestinian leaders are blaming Israel for not providing them with Covid vaccines, even though they had already procured some elsewhere. Back with us is Dexter Van Zile (www.camera.org), Christian Media Analyst with the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting and Analysis. He points to a bigger picture than just a vaccine controversy – statehood for Palestine and isolation for Israel.

Views deemed unpopular by the woke crowd should be protected under a nation's laws, but what happens when college students are kicked out anyway for expressing them? Joining us today from Canada to talk about his country's anti-free speech problem on college campuses is freelance writer Calum Anderson (crisismagazine.com). He looks at the differences in laws between Canada and the U.S. and broadens things out to cover the woke crowd's need for "dissenters" to write statements rejecting their own beliefs before they can be eligible to be hired.

HR1 is a new bill in Congress that, if passed, will codify every suspect procedure behind the 2020 election – vote by mail, no signature verification requirements, no voter ID, no voter roll cleaning, etc. J. Christian Adams (publicinterestlegal.org), President of the Public Interest Legal Foundation, joins us briefly to discuss this new bill and show that attempts are being made to make that which is illegal legal.

Now that we have the background on HR1, we transition to our second guest of the day, Kurt Hyde (thenewamerican.com), contributor to The New American magazine. He also identifies the problems in HR1 and offers possible solutions to move voting away from dysfunction and back to the fairly secure and reasonable way it's always been done. Election reform is needed. But if HR1 passes, will reform ever be possible?

AJ Swinson: Linking BLM and BDS

Recent comments by Marc Lamont-Hill seemed to suggest that Black Lives Matter and anti-semitism go hand in hand. Here today to talk about this is AJ Swinson (newjourneypac.org), Chief of Staff at New Journey Political Action Committee. She explains how black movements wanting a better way of life have been co-opted by Marxist groups like Black Lives Matter who don't simply want to try and change things for the better – they want to overthrow the whole system. They tag Israel with the oppressor status, calling for them to wiped away as well. Change does need to happen, but through reform, not a fundamental transformation of society.
