Some topics are easy to debate – persecution, anti-Constitutional measures, even civil asset forfeiture. But other topics can be difficult to discuss because they are difficult to hear. One of those is antisemitism on the part of the Christian community. Does it happen? Here today to dissect this issue is author and commentator Olivier Melnick (newantisemitism.com). Have Christians persecuted Jews in the past because of verses in the Bible? Was it because they had a hand in killing Christ? Was it because they were Jewish or for some other reason? Olivier discusses all of this plus the history of anti-Jewish acts all the way up to today.

We have seen anti-Semitic attitudes, groups, and ideologies throughout the world, but what goes into the thinking behind it? Dr. Charles Jacobs (peaceandtolerance.org), President of Americans for Peace and Tolerance, joins us to examine why people oppose Israel so virulently but are OK with other countries' atrocities. He also looks at why Jews in the West vote for anti-Semitic politicians, and why the UN and many Western governments seem to have it out for the state of Israel.

Next, we've heard a lot about court packing in the past few weeks since Amy Cony Barrett's nomination and now acceptance to the Supreme Court bench. Mike Berry (firstliberty.org), General Counsel at First Liberty Institute is here to explain what court packing is, why democrats are so up in arms about this right now, and how activist judges torture legal language. It's constitutional warfare – who will come out on top?

John and Producer Steve then sit down to discuss how some far left policies are beginning to or could soon spiral out of control. They look at the far left's attempt to fundamentally transform the country through court packing and eliminating the Electoral College, one-party rule in some states that have literally led to disaster, and woke corporations' critical race theory sessions.

John finishes up the show this week with a sobering and sometimes graphic update on religious persecution, in the countries of China, Pakistan, Egypt, Russia, Nigeria, and Kenya.
