We are skipping over the boralogue this week and jumping in with John Zmirak (, Senior Editor at The Stream, who examines the geopolitics of Syria and the Middle East as it pertains to the Kurds and the Turks, the battle between Iran and Israel, and how Christians are faring in the region.


The great race is on between the Federal Reserve and the Trump administration in the plan to hike interest rates.  Stephen Moore (, Senior Economic Contributor for Freedom Works and advisor to President Trump joins us to discuss the state of the economy, how to get spending under control, and the need to continue pro-growth policies.


The Catholic Church has entered into an agreement with the Chinese government that could be detrimental to Christians in China.  Gina Goh (, Southeast Asia Regional Manager for International Christian Concern, gives her observations on how the agreement is affecting local churches and how persecution there is strengthening Christians' resolve.


Agenda 21 from the UN has now morphed into a new plan: Agenda 2030.  Author and teacher Jeffrey Ludwig ( points out that catch phrases in the new plan – positive rights, sustainable development, needs of the world – don't actually achieve anything.  The plan doesn't specifically call for a one-world government, but it is a strong move forward in setting one up.


John’s quote of the week:    

"We are in not a political clash but a philosophical clash.  It's a clash between the old Judeo-Christian western civilization model versus the regurgitation of the neo-Marxist ideas of class struggle and warfare.  They are both vying for control of the governments of the West."

Most people look forward to getting together with friends and relatives. But many dread these times because it means facing those who’ve hurt us, or worse, those we’ve hurt. How can we put damaged relationships back on track?

Topic: Brannon continues part 3 in his series on brainwashing. But first Dr. Jimmy DeYoung joins him the program for our weekly Middle East update. Topic: Prime Minister Netanyahu requests from the Trump Administration to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights because of the significance of the security situation in the North. Topic: Red-Dead project moving forward - a deal between Israel and Jordan. Topic: The Palestinian - UNCivil War. Topic: Hamas to increase violence, to cover incompetence, and they did that beginning today. Topic: We take your calls.

In this episode Dr. Peter Pry reveals how incredibly old and perhaps even unreliable is a portion of America’s nuclear deterrent arsenal. As Russia is on a fast track to modern nuclear technology, America is falling behind with an aging system that in some cases has not been verified as even operational in some areas in many years. In fact, Russia has now developed such advanced nuclear technology that America, in some cases, does not have a defense system to counter some of Russia’s new technology much less respond with equal or greater warfare technology. The balance of military might is increasingly shifting away from America and to Russia and China. The two nation’s in the summer of 2018 carried out what may well have been the largest military exercise in world history.

Dr. Michelle Cretella is the president of the American College of Pediatricians and a general pediatrician with a special interest in behavioral pediatrics.  She serves on the Medical Committee of the Alliance for Therapeutic Choice and Scientific Integrity and has served on the Board of Directors of the National Association for Research and therapy for Homosexuality.  She received her medical degree in 1994 from the University Of Connecticut School Of Medicine and completed in internship and residency in pediatrics in 1997 at the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center in Hartford.

There was a study that came out in the journal ‘Pediatrics’ called, ‘Transgender Adolescent Suicide Behavior’. It broke down the suicide attempt rates according to the children’s gender identities. It found that if you had a biological girl who identified as such, or a boy who identified as a boy, those groups had the lowest rates of suicide attempts. The teens who had the highest rates were girls who believed themselves to be boys and teens who chose the term, ‘non-binary’ and identified neither as a boy or girl. Dr. Cretella’s caution to the article in the Daily Signal was that this information will be used to pressure parents of girls who believe they’re transgender, and to have their daughters rushed into transition via dangerous hormones and double mastectomies before they’re even old enough to consider driving.

A message that’s being put across by all this is that parents will be told that if they don’t support the claims of their child, help them transition socially, give them a new name, and get them on certain drugs, they are abusive parents.

Dr. Cretella also noted that the authors of the study simply assume that having a transgender identity is normal, inborn, healthy and not changeable. There’s no rigorous science supporting the claim that people are born transgender. Thinking and feeling is not hard-wired like skin color. Twin studies show that no one is destined to be born anorexic, and in the same way, no one is born destined to believe that they are not their biological sex. She said, ‘We know that behavior can be changed; thinking can change, feelings can change, especially in children and especially in adolescence where the brain is going through such rapid growth and fine tuning.’

More evidence is presented to support the claims of the guest and callers bring their perspective as well. You can hear it all when you review this important Crosstalk broadcast.
