It's a holiday week, we're anticipating Thanksgiving, and things usually slow down this time of year. But there is plenty going on around the world. Back with us today to talk geopolitics is Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson. He looks at Russia's talks with UAE regarding military aircraft and how that could signify a shift away from relations with Iran. He discusses Russia's buildup near Ukraine, the migrant situation on the border of Poland and Belarus, and covid vaccine misinformation around the world. He also comments on the Chinese tennis star who may have been disappeared for accusing a former member of the CCP of assault.
This week, it's a show about division. First up, there is a detailed, nuanced divide in Christianity where you have fundamental Christians on one side and social justice Christians on the other. Our first guest this week is Doug Morgan (uncommonsensepodcast.com), host of the Uncommon Sense podcast. He looks at the importance of maintaining relationships within Christianity without sacrificing doctrine. It's always been a delicate balance between living in a fallen world and holding fast to the core tenets of your faith. You can't serve two masters – in this case worldviews. Choose wisely.
This week marked the 32nd anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the ultimate symbol of the divide between the Soviets and the West. John asks why the West has never learned anything from the brutal Communism that gripped countries and cities behind the Iron Curtain for decades. We then welcome back to the show Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson. He discusses China and Iran's economic partnership, the climate conference, and Covid tyranny in cities. He also examines what life was really like under communism in Russia and shows that even Vladimir Putin knows America is inching closer to that reality.
Finally, we look at the division within the Democrat Party. Retired engineer John Green is back with us to try and make sense of the illogical, inept, and bumbling policies of the current administration. Are the power brokers running the show behind President Biden being frustrated by their public leader's incompetence? A civil war has broken out within the Democrat Party. Will the deep division destroy the party or push them completely into socialism? Only time will tell.
Today marks the 32nd anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Has the West learned anything from the brutal Communism that gripped countries and cities behind the Iron Curtain for decades? John begins today's podcast commenting on what actually happened behind the Iron Curtain and how today's youth don't remember the Cold War and the atrocities that happened then. Why doesn't the West ever learn the lessons of Marxism? John answers that question and more.
We then welcome back to the podcast Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson. He discusses Iran and China partnering up economically, the intellectual bankruptcy and hypocrisy behind the recent climate conference, and the state of cities today under Covid tyranny. He also gives a backgrounder on what life was like under Communism in the Soviet Union and how some of that mindset still remains. Even President Putin recognizes that America is doing the same things they criticized the USSR of doing right before they collapsed. Will we ever learn?
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.
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.
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.
The Warsaw Security Forum was held last week in Poland and featured a global outlook on defense. Back with us today, fresh from his attendance at the Conference, is our Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson. He takes a look at NATO defense in the face of Russian aggression and how several countries are questioning what the Biden administration's reaction would be should a hostile country move against a NATO nation. He also discusses China's internal problems and their provocations toward Taiwan as well as the future of the manufacture of weapon systems.
After 16 years in power, Angela Merkel will step down as Chancellor of Germany. The country's Social Democrats edged out her party in elections this week. What does that mean for Europe and the world going forward? We welcome back Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson to the program to give us an update on geopolitics. He looks at many issues, including Europe's impending energy crisis caused by the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline deal, China's threat of global dominance, and some dangerous Russian military exercises. Many countries in Europe, especially Germany, are walking into a crisis with their eyes wide open.
John often says that when danger reared its ugly head, the pastors turned and bravely fled. That could be used to describe today's church. But has it always been that way in America? Our next guest today is Dan Fisher (danfisherbrr.com), Co-Pastor of Fairview Baptist Church in Edmond, Oklahoma. He reminds us about the pastors from the late 18th century who bravely led their flock in battle to birth our Republic. Fast forward to today and many pastors turn and flee from conflict. He offers solutions to turn the tide.
Finally, we head north to Canuck country with fan favorite Christine Douglass-Williams (frontpagemag.com), writer at FrontPage Magazine and Jihad Watch. She discusses a situation where a Jewish judge has been barred from presiding over cases involving Muslims. It points to a larger problem within the Canadian government and media where talking points and so-called facts are actually flipped upside down. We've gotten to the point where lies are being marketed as truth.
Periodically, we invite Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson on to give us an update on geopolitics, specifically in Europe, but also around the world. Today, he and John examine a number of issues, including post-Merkel Germany, and Europe's impending energy crisis caused by the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline and Russia's increasing influence in the industry. They also look at China and its hostage taking policies along with their views of the U.S. under Biden. Reuben also discusses the latest Russian military exercises that seem to simulate a future attack against western Europe, NATO, and Ukraine.
We started the week out with Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson and he's back with us today to finish out the week and to look at a number of issues, including the consequences of America's behavior in the disastrous pullout from Afghanistan. Confidence in the U.S. among NATO nations, as well as Ukraine, is plummeting – should a neighbor country act aggressively, it's no longer certain that the U.S. would intervene to help out. He also covers Russia's and China's potential future geopolitical plans, the pandemic moving forward, and even a little on the California governor recall election.
