Increasingly we’re hearing a rallying cry for socialism in our society. Free healthcare, free education, free food, free housing, free public transportation, free childcare, guaranteed jobs and free welfare for the poor. Certain politicians are fanning the flames of the mobs to change our government, our constitution, and our way of life as a nation. Do we really want to go the way of Russia, Communist China, Cuba or Venezuela? Is socialism a wonderful utopia or is it a totalitarian nightmare? Will everything be free or will deep-state bureaucrats decide who gets what? Is there a difference between socialism and communism?
Unbelievable orders are coming out due to COVID-19. The State of Illinois has just recently closed all indoor dining, while Michigan’s governor is going to require restaurants to take the names and contact information of diners. Meanwhile, according to Dr. Anthony Fauci, mask mandates and social distancing may be necessary through 2021 and into 2022.
According to the guest on this Crosstalk, totalitarians and con-artists who have hyped and exploited the coronavirus to steal freedom and destroy livelihoods are in the crosshairs for a coming tsunami of legal action.
There’s great political tension in America with vitriol at an all-time high. There’s a divide based upon skin color and the ideology surrounding that as we’ve seen the formation of Antifa and Black Lives Matter. Family members are rising up against each other. There’s also a spiritual divide between those who accept the authority of God’s Word and those who don’t. Another issue that has sparked division within all of these areas is something referred to as critical race theory (CRT).
We have seen things unfold in this nation over the last few years that many never dreamed possible and it’s escalating quickly. We see activist Islamic groups at work, we see the uprising of the Antifa groups and Black Lives Matter. We see the battle in society over how we define marriage and how we define terms like ‘male’ and ‘female.’ We see the battle for the life of the unborn and those who are so committed to killing the most vulnerable among us that they will stop at nothing to accomplish their goal. There is the Southern Poverty Law Center labeling Christian groups and traditional family groups as ‘hate groups.’ We see the eruption of so-called ‘peaceful protests’ that rioted, looted, and destroyed businesses in cities across the nation.
The final Presidential debate occurred last evening, October 22nd. While this debate was supposed to focus on foreign policy, the Debate Commission switched the focus to items very similar to the first debate. Jim highlighted the following points of discussion:
Fracking and the oil industry
Illegal immigration and border enforcement
Biden evading Pres. Trump’s mention of the Hunter Biden emails
Reopening schools and businesses
Who is tougher on Russia
Black Lives Matter and racism
Increasing minimum wage
Many callers weighed-in with their take of the debate as well.

The election on November 3rd will set a record. According to a recent report released by the LGBTQ Victory Fund at least 574 openly LGBTQ candidates will be on the ballot this year. They report this is an increase of 33% from 2018. They report that California, Texas and Florida are the states with the greatest number of LGBTQ candidates running. Wisconsin could see its first openly transgender state representative as Jessica Katzenmeyer seeks an Assembly seat.
In the San Francisco Bay Area, drag performers have launched a “Drag Out the Vote” campaign effort. In an opinion piece put out by The Hill, Alphonso David, President of the Human Rights Campaign urges LGBTQ voters to show up at the polls or risk losing the progress made on their behalf.
Joining us to discuss these and numerous related issues is Peter LaBarbera – Founder and President of Americans For Truth.
The United States is certainly a land of plenty; it is the richest country in the world. But according to guest, Jerry Newcombe, our country has one primary problem: we have forgotten God. Many men in America’s past called the nation to remember God and warned of what will happen if we don’t. Patrick Henry, Abraham Lincoln, George Washington and Ronald Reagan are among these.
What has led us down this path of forgetfulness? What lies ahead? Since we have removed God, who then is ruling over us? How does this relate to the election currently underway?
Last week the Senate Judiciary Committee met to question Supreme Court Justice nominee, Amy Coney Barrett, regarding her nomination to the United States Supreme Court. Mat Staver provides an analysis of her testimony and the questions that were thrown at her. If the vote scheduled for 9am, Thursday, the 22nd, is passed by the Senate Judiciary Committee, then it’s on to the full Senate. If Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed, this would be President Trump’s third justice appointed to the bench.
Meanwhile the issue of court packing continues to loom as former Vice President Joe Biden has refused to give a definitive answer on this issue.
During this Crosstalk program, Mat was probed with questions regarding the tricks to stop the hearings from proceeding, Amy’s stunning record of character and intellect, her mental preparedness for the hearings and quick handling of the questions. The program was wrapped up with answers to what “court packing” is and upcoming Supreme Court cases, followed by listener calls.
–A newly released e-mail allegedly shows that then Vice President Joe Biden met with a top executive at Burisma less than a year before he pressured the Ukrainian government to fire a prosecutor that was investigating the company.
