Below are highlights from Jim’s look at news events from our nation and around the world. Stories included: –China flew approximately 56 fighter planes toward Taiwan on Monday, the largest show of force on record.
The United States is under attack. We see what’s happening at our southern border. We see the government mandates, the push to bankrupt our nation, efforts to disarm the citizenry, to teach Critical Race Theory, as well as the effort to bait children in order to turn them against their parents, etc. These are not isolated, stand-alone incidents. Instead, these are working collectively as an attack against our nation. It’s an attempt to literally transform our nation and our values; to turn America into a Marxist/socialist state.
Vaccine mandates are occurring all over America with businesses, even hospitals and medical clinics, telling employees to get the vaccines or be fired. Some are even told that if you’re fired, you can’t file for unemployment benefits because you have a choice.
For over 30 years, the guest on this edition of Crosstalk has been sounding the alarm over the dangers of Agenda 21 to human society. As a result, he’s been labeled a conspiracy theorist. He’s been accused of speaking fear and hate. The Southern Poverty Law Center has issued 4 separate reports on him. He’s been under attack on the front page of the Sunday New York Times. Newsweek has described this guest as being extremist, spreading untruths about Agenda 21 to discredit the U.N. by claiming it’s attempting to enforce a new world order to seize private property and advance the causes of communism and to crush all dissent.
Returning to Crosstalk to discuss this issue was Dave Benoit. Dave led a very rebellious teenage life which led him to reform school. However, the Lord got a hold of him, and at age 17 he placed his trust in Jesus Christ as Savior. He went to Bible college then entered the ministry as a youth pastor, then later as a Word of Life Bible Club Director. In 1984 he founded Glory Ministries in which he exposed the truth of the damaging effects of rock music on society. In later years he exposed the gripping hold of the occult and New Age movement on our society and even how it penetrated into Christian homes and churches. Dave has a heart as an evangelist to see people come to the Savior.
–President Biden answered reporters saying that after nearly two years of job killing and liberty squelching lock-downs, restrictions and mandates, Americans can look forward to a return to normal but only if nearly 100% of them submit themselves to the COVID vaccine.
Battles are being waged in classrooms across America. Much of it centers around curriculum, practices and policy and sometimes over matters such as political correctness. Sadly, oftentimes students are caught in the crosshairs, being used like pawns on a chessboard. As a result, they are the ones that end up being victimized by the system.
Jim began by noting how it’s been amazing to see the collapse of our nation’s border security in less than 8 months. Individuals from all over the world are entering the U.S. through our southwest border. As that happens, it’s not criminal aliens who are being vilified, but instead it’s our own border agents who are coming under great scrutiny, even from President Biden.
According to Alex, the term “New World Order” has a long history. In the current context, the first time it was brought to the attention of the American people was by George H.W. Bush in the early 1990’s in a speech on national television. He gave a vision where the rule of law would govern the conduct of nations. He also pointed to the U.N.’s peace-keeping role, all to implement the vision of the U.N.’s founders.
