Reuben Johnson

As happens once toward the end of every month, John sits down as interviewee with Lee Lancaster on local radio station KYMS. Today, we bring you that interview. John and Lee discuss a number of topics, including truth in reporting from Ukraine, Elon Musk's buyout of Twitter, the five stages of persecution, censorship in social media that led to the rise of alternative platforms, and digital currency. John also gives his monthly update on the martyred church, asking for prayer for believers in Nigeria, Uganda, Egypt, Pakistan, and China.

And the war goes on in Ukraine. Lot of reporting, some true, some not so much. What's really going on there? Back with us today is our Ukraine expert Reuben Johnson. He covers a number of topics, including the truth about how much Russia hasn't accomplished, Putin's possible plans moving forward, and a surprising announcement of alliance with Ukraine from a European country. He also draws on his defense industry experience to describe what both Ukraine and Russia have in their military arsenals.

Politicos have mismanaged our economy for years leading us to the paradigm shift we're experiencing today. Now they're trying to offload responsibility but also use this mess to continue their agenda. John opens the program this week continuing his analysis of how we got here. He reviews what President Trump did to repair our economy and how President Biden has undone all of that. The world runs on oil, but there are forces – namely the climate alarmists – that have always advocated for getting us off of oil by taxing it, thereby hurting the poor and middle class. They and the politicos have slowly enacted their plans over the years, leading us to where we are today.

People are beginning to awaken from their slumber when it comes to these plans. The emperor is quickly disrobing and all the cards are now on the table. Joining us today is Christopher Bedford (rightforge.com), Chief Communications Officer at RightForge. Globalists are using our current crises to accelerate their Great Reset plans, but as they do, average everyday folks are waking up. Issues and relationships once thought unimportant are suddenly found to be vital. There's a battle brewing between the resetters and the reformers as we race into an unknown future.

There has been a new set of sanctions against the Russian government for their role in Ukraine. But could there be unforeseen consequences to these new sanctions? With us to discuss is Tho Bishop (mises.org), Assistant Editor of the Mises Wire at the Mises Institute. He shows how politicians are largely ignorant about economics, putting politics over sound policy. He also looks at the very real possibility that the sanctions process being used against Putin right now may soon be used against ‘domestic terrorists' in America.

We finish this week's program with an incredible update from our correspondent in Ukraine, Reuben Johnson. We had feared the worst after not hearing from him for weeks, but he's back and he tells us what he experienced trying to leave Ukraine and how the Russian soldiers feel about the war they're fighting.

It's that time again for John to be the interviewee. He sits down with Lee Lancaster at KYMS radio for their monthly chat. John and Lee discuss a variety of topics, including the Christian church in Ukraine and Russia amid the conflict, the overall state of different denominations within Russia, and the silencing of conservative voices in the name of combating hate speech. John goes on to give a sobering account of persecuted Christians around the world, specifically in Nigeria, Pakistan, and India.

For a couple of weeks, we had no idea what had become of our Ukraine-based expert Reuben Johnson. Had he escaped Kiev? Was he injured or dead? Thankfully, we received a call from him letting us know what had happened. He is with us today to share his incredible tale – one that involves his car being destroyed by machine gun fire! He also discusses conversations he has had and reports he's received regarding the mindset of both Russian and Ukrainian soldiers.

There are many facets of the current Russia-Ukraine issue that are not being reported on, so we contacted our man on the ground in Kiev, Reuben Johnson, who agreed to take a few minutes today to fill us in on what's really going on over there.  He examines the debate about whether the U.S. should even get involved in the conflict, Article 5 of NATO's charter, and the Budapest agreement of 1994 – all in advocation of defending Ukraine from Russian advance.  He also looks at China and the controversy surrounding their hosting of the Olympics.

Lot of rumbling lately about Russia and incursions – minor or otherwise – into Ukraine. There's no better resource for the latest updates on this than our man in Ukraine, Reuben Johnson. He looks at a number of topics today, including hastily scheduled and ultimately unproductive negotiations between Russia and the U.S. regarding Ukraine, Biden's press conference last week and the implications from that, and the true state of Putin's government and the rest of Russia. He also discusses the pervasive surveillance state in China and what journalists will have to face during the upcoming Olympic games.

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.

The Supreme Court heard arguments this week in a case involving a Mississippi ban on all abortions after the 15th week of pregnancy. There is more to the abortion debate than the usual topics. Opening the show this week, John highlights the shifting definition of an unborn baby over the years by the pro-abortion crowd. It went from a clump of cells to maybe alive to 'OK, it's a human.' But they also say that while it may be a human, it's still not a person. This gives them the so-called moral justification to perform abortions. It's what the Nazis did – they depersonalized Jews so that they could justify places like Auschwitz.

There is a lot going on around the world so we shift our focus to global geopolitics. Back with us this week is Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson. He and John discuss military aircraft sales in Dubai involving the UAE and Russia, which could indicate Russia's shift away from talks with Iran. Also, Russia is building up their military on the border with Ukraine and the migrant situation at the Belarus-Poland border is heating up. Plus, Covid misinformation is not unique to the U.S. – he shows how other countries are dealing with it.

Finally this week, we dive back into the school boards versus parents issue with Nicole Neily (defendinged.org), Founder and President of Parents Defending Education. She examines how shameless school boards and teachers' unions have been in the education arena and how it has galvanized parents to stand up for their rights. She offers ways that parents can fight back against educrat tyranny and protect their children.

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.
