A hot spot for religious persecution today, especially against Christians, can be found in China. Opening the show this week is Founder and President of China Aid, Bob Fu (chinaaid.org), who is also a Christian refugee from China. He describes how physical and virtual church gatherings have been banned, millions of people are in reeducation camps, and many people have been arrested and thrown in prison for hosting in-house church meetings and prayer groups. But the silver lining is that when persecution grows, so does the zeal for Christ and the number of Christians.

Since news stories have piled up here in the studio, John, Carol, and Steve convene the Steel Round Table to discuss a variety of important issues. They look at the cold wave that hit Texas and the issues surrounding that, a bill in the House that seems to target only President Trump, the push toward a digital currency, and Andrew Cuomo's rapid decline in the eyes of leftists. They also examine the chaos surrounding postmodernist thinking.

Will the ideological divide continue to widen in America or can we truly keep this the United States? Wrapping up the program this week is Dr. Richard Land (ses.edu), President of Southern Evangelical Seminary. He looks at the growing discontent among fly-over folks at being censored. The media is to blame as they throw gasoline on the fire of division with biased reporting and alternative definitions of words. The education system is to blame as well, teaching children that this is a horrible and racist country. Is there anything we can do to turn this highly divisive tide?

One of the world's hot spots for religious persecution, especially against Christians, is in China. Joining us today is Founder and President of China Aid, Bob Fu (chinaaid.org), who is also a Christian refugee from China. He describes how religious persecution today under the Chinese Communist Party is the worst it has been since the Cultural Revolution. Physical and virtual church gatherings have been banned, millions of Christians and people from other religious groups are in reeducation camps, and social credit score systems loom over everyone as a means of control. Many people are arrested and thrown in prison for hosting in-house church meetings and prayer groups. But the silver lining is that when persecution grows, so does the zeal for Christ and the number of Christians operating in an underground status.

Is it really possible that the U.S. could see a social credit score like they have in China? Caught up in that question is the recent squabble between tech companies over data privacy. Back with us today to go over this topic is Russ White (rule11.tech), nationwide expert in network infrastructure architecture. Russ and John discuss who really has ownership of your personal data, the impacts of net neutrality, and the rampant partisan hypocrisy of the Big Tech companies. The ultimate question is: who controls what and what will our rights be? They also look at how from a technological perspective, most everything is in place for Biblical prophecies to come true. As John has said, if this isn't the End Times, then it's one heck of a dress rehearsal.

Today we continue our thread on geopolitics with part one of a two-part interview with Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson (thebulwark.com). He examines the precarious position Taiwan finds itself with China potentially emboldened to take over the small island country. He also looks at the sudden cancellation of Hong Kong passports, the history of Hong Kong along with China prematurely breaking the 1997 agreement, and finally China's social credit score system – and how we're seeing a similar version of it pop up here in the United States.

Join us tomorrow for part two of the conversation with Reuben Johnson where he and John discuss several cultural issues in the U.S.

Pat Wood: Technocracy in America

We've heard about the rise of technocracy for some time now, but the pace at which it is moving has significantly picked up.  Joining us today is the preeminent expert on technocracy, Pat Wood (citizensforfreespeech.org), who is Founder and Executive Director of Citizens for Speech and the Editor-in-Chief of technocracy.news.  He covers the alarming rise of a scientific dictatorship that has led to an unaccountable massive bureaucracy that unfairly decides your future.  It feels like a takeover.  And the first thing totalitarians do when they take over is take away your ability to communicate. That's what we're seeing right now.  The entire First Amendment is about communication in one form or another.  If we lose that, we're done as a country.

How did we go from the single issue of police brutality to the insanity we see today? In this week's boralogue, John lays out the steps Marxists take that transition from legitimate protests to pulling down statues and defying authority. They create the narrative of oppressors and oppressed and once established, more violent behavior is justified. But if it morphs completely out of control, Marxists will no longer need to justify their revolution to destroy America.

There's an old claim reemerging that Israeli police have trained American law enforcement to mistreat minorities. Is there any truth to this? We speak with the training program's architect, Steven Pomerantz (www.jinsa.org), retired FBI Agent and current Director at JINSA, who says this assertion is false. After 9/11, the U.S. needed to upgrade its national security and counter-terrorism plans, so we learned from the world's foremost expert in those areas.

John, Carol and Producer Steve join forces in a studio roundtable this week discussing the attempted Marxist takeover of America. The fundamental transformation of society is underway, through violence as well as education and media propaganda, and it will not stop at your door or the doors of the Church. What can be done to combat it?

John finishes up with a fireside chat of sorts, covering topics such as cell phone apps that track Covid patients; biometric identifier – is it the mark of the beast?; and using prayer to convey an anti-Christian message.
