John flies solo on today's podcast, looking at the Canadian truckers' protest convoy and how it highlights a few things about totalitarian governments.  He shows the different stages governments, like Canada now, go through in trying to hold on to their power.  When they are threatened by protest, especially by a large group, they try name calling, shaming, and even brute force to shut down dissent.  John goes over the possible outcomes of a protest like this.  We always advocate to stand up for truth and what's right.  The truckers in Canada have been standing up – or rolling out in their case – against totalitarianism.

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.

Shaking the Fence

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?

Recently, Artur Pawlowski (streetchurch.ca), Founder of Street Church Ministries in Alberta, Canada, traveled to John's church to give a speech and John caught up with him for an impromptu interview. Artur and John discuss the battle ahead for Western civilization and how we need God in this battle if we are going to win. The enemy is clearly defined; they are the totalitarians and the ones who help them. One of the key reasons people have fallen to the enemy in the past, has been the failure to stand up en masse to the tyranny. We must learn from this lesson. And if we are going to be successful in standing up, we'd better get started because the enemy has already begun to fight.

Spiritual Muscle Memory

Broadcast Running Time: 01:18:14

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.
