Despite what some in government, and by extension the media, are telling you, inflation is a problem and it won't go away soon given the path we're on. Here today to discuss is Bruce Yandle (nercatus.org), Distinguished Adjunct Fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University. He predicts when the tipping point will be in our economy if things don't change. Eventually, not only will our debt crush us, but even the interest on the debt will become too much. What does our economy look like? He likens it to Frankenstein's monster – stitched together, unpredictable, and one that may eventually turn on us. He also gives us what he would do if he were in charge of the Federal Reserve.

Whether people tell you globalism exists or not, the global power elite have been telegraphing their plans for decades. The puppet masters are pulling the world's strings and it's time we recognize what they're doing. First up this week is Jon Fleetwood (americanfaith.com), Managing Editor at American Faith. He links Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum and a mysterious organization called BlackRock to much of the chaos happening today – something collectively called the Great Reset. The chess board is set and the game has begun, but most people don't even believe it's being played. Let's change that.

China tested a nuclear-capable hypersonic missile that circled the globe back in August, catching U.S. intelligence agencies by surprise. Reuben Johnson, our Ukraine-based defense expert, joins us to explain the good news and bad news surrounding this development and discuss the planning that goes into weapons production. He also looks at Russia's military and what's really going on with China's economy.

Artur Pawlowski (streetchurch.ca), the embattled pastor from Calgary, Alberta has fought the pandemic lockdowns in his province and was arrested for it. He's here to give an update on his court case, the judgment handed down, and what he plans to do going forward. Though ordered to denounce the truth, Pastor Pawlowski has vowed not to be silenced.

We finish up this week's show with John's analysis on the state of globalism today and its affects on Western civilization. He pulls together the information provided by both John Fleetwood and Reuben Johnson and applies it to today's news.

We have vaccine mandates, people getting fired or being forced to resign, the economy is sluggish, supply chains are backed up – what, if anything, can we the non-elite citizens do in response? Back with us today is Larry Klayman (freedomwatchusa.org), Founder and Chairman of Freedom Watch. He describes the several different attempts to seize control of this country, in the process ruining it. Regarding our rights per the Declaration, if the government becomes destructive to these ends, then it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it. Can that be done today? Would that be a coup or just establishing separate government? What does that look like? Larry's not just talking – he's doing something about it.

Do masks actually work? What about the vaccine? Joining us today is Dr. Jane Orient (aapsonline.org), Executive Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. She tackles these questions and more, looking at how politicized the pandemic and related issues have become, always at the expense of the truth. Politicization has led to medical tyranny, which in turn seems to be part of a grander globalist plan. They are using the current pandemic to force totalitarian policies on us in what can only be described as a trial run for when they make their final push.

Before the 2020 election, many prognosticators were betting that the Democrat Party would soon come to an end, citing a variety of reasons. And then the election happened. Does the argument still hold up? Joining us today is Bob Adelmann (thenewamerican.com), retired entrepreneur and conservative columnist. He describes how several analysts, many of whom are democrats, are predicting that unless the focus of the party changes, it will disappear quickly. Why? Radicals are choosing to hyper-focus on issues that voters don't really care about. He goes on to give an early prediction of how many seats the democrats will lose next year in both houses of Congress and asks what republicans are going to do once they regain control.

Information has surfaced that China tested a nuclear-capable hypersonic missile that circled the globe back in August, reportedly catching U.S. intelligence agencies by surprise. Here today to lend his expertise on this is our Ukraine-based defense specialist Reuben Johnson. He looks at the good news and the bad news regarding these missiles, and gives us the strategic thinking and planning that goes into weapons production. A case of espionage also occurred recently where a U.S. couple was caught smuggling weapons system plans to an as yet undisclosed country. Reuben finishes up discussing the real state of the Chinese economy.

With all of the chaos in the world, do you ever get the feeling that there's a puppet master behind the scenes pulling strings to their advantage? Joining us today is Jon Fleetwood (americanfaith.com), Managing Editor at American Faith. He looks at Klaus Schwab at the World Economic Forum and an organization called BlackRock. He shows the links between the media, the Afghanistan pullout, the climate change agenda, and the glue that holds it all together – the Great Reset. It's transitioning from free market capitalism to what's being called stakeholder capitalism. The globalists are predicting that within a few decades, the average little guy will own nothing and be happy about it. If you've ever wanted to know how the chess board is lined up to get them to that point, listen to this interview.

A Biden executive order on gender identity is putting Christian colleges in a predicament.  Joining us today for a Sunday extra podcast is Ryan Bangert (adflegal.org), Vice President for Legal Strategy at Alliance Defending Freedom.  The executive order would force colleges to admit a male who identifies as a female into a female dorm – something most Christian colleges would not allow.  Mr. Bangert discusses the details of the order, his client's (College of the Ozarks) case, and how regardless of the outcome, the process is the punishment.

The Warsaw Security Forum was held last week, highlighting the geopolitics of military defense. First up this week is one of our regular guests who attended that conference, Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson. He examines NATO's defense against possible Russian aggression, the future of the manufacture of weapon systems, how countries are questioning the Biden administration after the debacle in Afghanistan, and China's provocation toward Taiwan as they deal with internal problems.

Next up, we dive deeper into China's provocation toward Taiwan and President Biden's meeting with Xi Jinping. We welcome up Stephen Bryen (centerforsecuritypolicy.org), Senior Fellow at the Center for Security Policy. He explains the history between China, Taiwan, and the U.S. and how the Biden administration is putting out mixed messages as to their foreign policy. In the end, no one is sure who's in charge at the White House with their fractured foreign policy, which ultimately leaves Taiwan in greater danger.

We move away from geopolitics and ask the question: what is the future of the Christian church amid all of the chaos in the world? Joining us next is Mike LeMay, retired General Manager of Q90FM in Green Bay, Wisconsin. He discusses how we are coming in to a time of religious persecution where we will have to choose between worldly churches and Bible-believing underground churches. Christians can fight the battles of this world, but we must keep our hearts in the Lord. Living in this fallen world, we may lose battles from time to time, but with God on our side, we ultimately win the war.

Finally, we take a look back at January 6, 2021. It wasn't an insurrection, but there was violence and the identity of some of the planners of that violence are being revealed. Rounding out the show this week is author, activist, and podcast host Suzzanne Monk (trumptalk.us). Some of the regular citizens who were arrested that day are still being held without a trial, while it has been discovered that Antifa and the FBI both had a hand in planning the part that was violent. With overwhelming odds against people who support former President Trump, it seems the Left wants conservatives to live in fear.

We have covered the story this past year of Artur Pawlowski (streetchurch.ca), the embattled pastor from Calgary, who has fought the pandemic lockdowns in his province and has been arrested for it.  He joins us today to give an update on his court case, the judgment handed down, and what he plans to do going forward.  Like Martin Luther 500 years ago, Pastor Pawlowski has vowed not to be silenced.  He was fitted for a muzzle but it was one that he immediately removed.
