John is on the road today but that doesn't stop him from being a guest on KYMS radio with Lee Lancaster. John and Lee discuss Russia's invasion of Ukraine as well as the impact on Christians in that country. As always John gives a sobering account of the persecuted church around the world, including in Nigeria and surrounding countries as well as in Iran, China, and India. There was also an incident in Australia, believe it or not, where police interrupted a Catholic mass to force parishioners to wear masks.
Many of the narratives we see on the news day after day after day are starting to fracture and the truth is beginning to emerge. Opening the program this week, John takes a look at many of these collapsing false narratives, including public education is the best education, vaccines will keep you from getting and spreading covid, and lockdowns and mandates are proven successful. Cracks are forming among the public and within both political parties as to the verity of these narratives.
The Beijing Olympics are right around the corner, but doubts have emerged as to whether China should host the Games given the CCP's harsh persecution of religious groups. Joining us this week is a man who is daring to take on the CCP, Leon Lee (unsilencedmovie.com), director of a new movie, Unsilenced, about the persecution of Falun Gong members in China. He recounts the myriad of obstacles he faced making this movie, as well as the rise of Falun Gong and his earlier work exposing the forced organ transplant trade in China.
Rounding out the show this week, we look at another specific narrative that is collapsing – that of vaccines working with no significant adverse reactions. Joining us is Rebecca Terrell (thenewamerican.com), Senior Editor at The New American magazine. She dubs the vaccine program as the biggest medical experiment in history and links it to the globalist push for worldwide depopulation. She also discusses adverse reactions as well as the efficacy of the vaccines versus other, more successful, medications.
We have often mentioned the plight of Falun Gong practitioners in China, but now, one man has made it his mission to produce and direct a movie about the Falun Gong and their fight against the Chinese Communist Party. Joining us today to talk about his new movie, called Unsilenced, is the director Leon Lee (unsilencedmovie.com). He describes the constant hurdles he had to jump over during production, with actors quitting due to fear of CCP retaliation and numerous venues cancelling. He also discusses both the rise of Falun Gong and the subsequent crackdown by the CCP as well as his previous work exposing forced organ transplants in China.
How has Karl Marx influenced the modern day far leftist progressive? To answer that, we welcome back investigative journalist and former economist with the White House Office of Management and Budget, James Simpson (crisisnow.net). The communism of Karl Marx infiltrated America and the West largely through the Frankfurt School, attempting to divide and subvert our culture. What we're seeing in 'white privilege' and critical race theory today are just the modern mechanisms to accomplish their plan. People are beginning to see what's happening but it seems like an uphill battle. Mr. Simpson shares some ideas on how to fight against it.
John finishes up today's podcast with a look at the Book of Revelation, the Four Horsemen, and today's globalist push. Are we indeed in the End Times? If so, what is our role as Christians?
In Mark 11, Jesus asked the Pharisees to decide if the baptism of John was from heaven or from men. Instead of making a decision, they sat on the fence and claimed ignorance. Artur Pawlowski (streetchurch.ca), Founder of Street Church Ministries in Alberta, Canada, spoke in our area recently and John caught up with him for an interview. Artur shows what the battle ahead will look like for Western civilization and what we must do to win. We must get off the fence and stand up to tyranny. We know what tyranny looks like from history so we should be able to recognize it now. Making that decision is scary, but with God on our side and an iron resolve, we can successfully make a stand and choose what side of the fence we want to be on.
If what is happening doesn't make sense, there must be another agenda afoot. And today, there are many things that don't make sense. Back with us this week is John Guandolo (understandingthethreat.com), Founder of Understanding the Threat. He maintains that many of these illogical events – like the disastrous pullout from Afghanistan – are intentional. Change agents come to town trying to distract you from the truth of what's happening but people are beginning to see through the charade and wake up. He shows us what we can do.
Finally this week we welcome to the show Joseph Puder (frontpagemag.com), columnist at FrontPage Magazine. He examines America's reputation in the world after the pullout from Afghanistan. Our allies around the world don't trust us and our enemies are more emboldened. Does that mean attacks on U.S. soil are imminent?
John often says that if what is happening doesn't make sense, there's another agenda afoot. Well, there are a lot of things happening today that don't make sense. Joining us is John Guandolo (understandingthethreat.com), Founder of Understanding the Threat. He maintains that many of these crazy events, which defy logic – the unbelievably bad exit from Afghanistan or much of the messaging behind covid – is intentional. Change agents swoop in and try to distract the public from what's really going on but people are starting to see through that and wake up. He offers solutions on how to dig out from this.
Rules for thee but not for me. That's the mantra underlying America's new woke belief system. Joining us today is freelance writer and author Larry Eubank (larryeubank.com) to discuss his new article Wokeism: The New American Orthodoxy. He looks at how the laws and rules when applied to radical leftists are ignored, because for them, the woke orthodoxy trumps everything – including the rule of law. But conservatives are expected to live up to those same laws. For every double standard on the surface, there's an undeclared single standard underneath. And that's the orthodoxy.
When times of trouble come upon you and you're facing spiritual red lines, you should already have plans in place on how to deal with it. This week, we speak to two gentlemen who are facing these red lines. First up is Artur Pawlowski (streetchurch.ca), the pastor in Calgary, Alberta who defied the authorities during a Passover service this year, telling them to leave, and calling them Nazis. Later, he and his brother were arrested. He describes his current situation including his arrest and goes on to compare it to the tactics of the communist authorities he witnessed growing up in Poland.
Next we visit with a man who has been battling religious persecution for nearly a decade. Jack Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cake Shop in Lakewood, Colorado, is joined by one his lawyers, Jake Warner (adflegal.org) of Alliance Defending Freedom. They recount the various legal cases Jack has endured and where they are now. Jack also describes his spiritual journey, including his decision to make plans early on as to how to handle the very situation in which he finds himself. These men created spiritual muscle memory in order to endure the hard times.
Finally this week, we welcome someone from across the Pond to analyze America's exceptionalism and the pros and cons that come with it. Joining us from France is Howard Burton (ideas-on-film.com), Founder and Creator of Ideas on Film. He compares and contrasts the perceptions of America from people abroad with those who live here. Few Americans think about their own country's exceptionalism and some even think we're far from outstanding. It's important to know your strengths and weaknesses and do so in truth.
A pastor in Calgary, Alberta defied the authorities during a Passover service this year, telling them to leave, and calling them Nazis. Later, he and his brother were arrested. That pastor, Artur Pawlowski (streetchurch.ca) joins us today. He is the Founder of Street Church Ministries in Calgary. He recaps his arrest and compares it to the tactics of the communist authorities he witnessed growing up in Poland. He came to Canada to escape totalitarianism and he fears that we are seeing it blossom here in the West now. Judaism and Christianity are being singled out while other religions are left alone. There is a spiritual battle taking place but a lot of churches don't seem willing to go to battle. They will need to if they are to survive.
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.
