Russia is not doing great. Neither is China. The U.S. isn't faring much better. What's going on around the world? Back with us to take a look is Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson. After examining Russia's buildup on Ukraine's border and possible imminent attack, he discusses Russia's impending economic disaster, China's demographic crisis – as well as ours, and how the majority of the world's superpowers are facing some sort of calamity. He also covers the importance of learning and understanding history so as not to repeat mistakes and move forward strategically and intelligently.
Once a month, John is a guest on KYMS, a local radio station here in the Inland Northwest, with Lee Lancaster to chat about current events and the martyred church. On today's podcast, John and Lee look at the threat Christianity poses to communist China and the measures China's government is taking to eradicate all opposition. They also discuss the growing pushback against mandates, both here and worldwide, and the avoidance by the Christian Church to wade into political or supposed controversial waters, too often falling into the social justice worldly camp instead. John also highlights the difference between persecution in the West and that in tyrannical countries.
The Equality Act, recently passed in the House and now awaiting debate in the Senate, has proven to be anything but equal. Joining us first this week is Dr. Anne Hendershott (franciscan.edu), Professor of Sociology at Franciscan University. She examines the impact on faith-based universities and institutions, medical doctors, and female athletes. Newly discovered rights not found in the Constitution are now superseding the rights and freedoms that are actually enshrined in the Constitution. This version of equality is trumpeted before the law.
Following the incident at the Capitol in January, we began hearing a lot about sending Trump supported to reeducation camps and deprogramming centers because they suffered from a supposed psychosis. The Soviet Union used to do things like this. Communist China is doing it today. John welcomes Larry Ong (sinoinsider), Senior Analyst at Sino Insider, who describes China's social credit score system and the cancelling of citizens that don't agree with the CCP'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.
Marxism has fully infiltrated the American education system. Is there anything that can be done to stop it? David Schmus (ceai.org), Executive Director of Christian Educators Association International, rounds out our guests this week. He discusses how leftist programs such as the transgender agenda and critical race theory have become prominent in today's schools. But he says there are ways to push back, namely through prayer and a non-offended heart. There is an alternative to the Marxism in today's schools, especially if we have God on our side.
John finishes up this week illustrating how to interact in arguments when the opposing person is acting emotional and irrational. Good advice in a divided world.
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.
