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?
Author and historian Bill Federer (www.americanminute.com) returns for part 2 of our conversation on the ravages of socialism. On today's podcast, he focuses on modern-day socialism from Pol Pot to Hitler to Mao to the USSR – it's been tried many times but it never succeeds. Modern socialism, is, though, far more organized than in times past and has instituted steps to create crises in order to offer solutions that benefit the State and erode the people's freedoms.
Bill looks at the current riots in this country, the planning that goes into them, the training of the people on the ground (most of whom aren't from the area), and the money behind it. It is awfully similar to the rise of socialism in the last century. Ultimately, it's all about the Marxist State ruling with an iron fist and gradually wiping out the freedoms this country was founded on.
Our biggest geopolitical threat today is not Russia as the media would have you believe; it is China. Joining us is Captain James Fanell (www.gcsp.ch), Retired U.S. Naval Intelligence Director, who draws on his experience and knowledge of China, examining China's goal of world domination by 2049, their battle with us in the space race, and their military strategy around the world.
This week we recognized the 75th anniversary of the dropping of the first atomic bomb on Japan in 1945. Tom Lewis (www.tomlewis4.wixsite.com), retired officer of the Royal Australian Navy, joins us to discuss his new book, Atomic Salvation, about how dropping the A-bomb may have saved millions of lives. The narrative about whether or not it was a good idea to drop the bombs has changed dramatically over the years.
Next, we play a clip from John's appearance on KYMS radio last weekend where he and host, Lee Lancaster, chat about the church and how it has handled crises, both in the past and in today's turbulent times.
There is a reason for the turbulent times, but it can be a bit overwhelming to try and make sense of it all. We wrap up the show this week with John's boralogue, where he details the stages Marxists and postmodernists go through to destroy our country. It's getting to a point where we can no longer hunker down and hope the chaos passes us by. We need to stand up for what is right before it's too late.
Seventy-five years ago today, the U.S. dropped the first of two atom bombs on Japan, eventually bringing about the end of WWII. Tom Lewis, retired officer of the Royal Australian Navy, joins us to discuss his new book, Atomic Salvation, about how dropping the A-bomb may have saved millions of lives. There was debate and secrecy involved in the operation leading up to the bombs dropping.
Dr. Lewis looks at how the narrative flipped from dropping the bombs was a good thing to it being absolutely horrible. It has largely to do with the passage of time and forgetting the horrors of war. Young people are not taught how horrible totalitarian governments have been. It makes them harder to recognize when they begin to form again.
