​Mike Donnelly is the director of global outreach for the Home School Legal Defense Association where he coordinates support for home schooling freedom all over the world. Mike is also staff attorney for members in the states of Colorado, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Ohio, West Virginia and Tennessee. Mike is an adjunct professor at Patrick Henry College where he teaches constitutional law. He is a member of the bars of several states and the U.S. Supreme Court. He's an internationally published writer and speaker. He and his wife home school their seven children.

This Crosstalk revolved around a Romanian/Norwegian couple. Marius and and Ruth Bodnariu met when they were ministering to Romanian street children. Eventually they married, moved to Norway to be with Ruth's parents, and began building a family that is now comprised of 5 children ages 9,7,5,3 and 7 months.

Apparently there had been some kind of incident that the children had witnessed at school earlier in the year. The principal was investigating and during a conversation with the children he asked what happens in their home. This principal, as well as other teachers, knew that this family is very Christian. The principal then made a phone call to the Norwegian child protective services agency (called Barnevernet) due to his concern that these parents are teaching about sin which some feel causes stress in children. This principal also knew that the Bodnariu's spank their children.

Last November Ruth noticed one day that her children were not on the bus that normally brings them home. Instead they arrived in two cars with adults who communicated that they were taking the kids from them. The officials indicated that they would be contacting the Bodnariu's to let them know how they can get their children back.

Eventually the youngest, who was 3 months old at the time, was also taken. Like the older children, this one was placed in a foster home.

By the end of November the social services agency had filed papers in court to permanently terminate the parental rights of the Bodnariu's and the children would have been adopted out possibly to the foster families they were staying with.

A trial is coming up in Norway at the end of this month where a judge will hear the case and decide the fate of the children.

Many Romanians were shocked and outraged by this incident and have taken an interest in this case. They have organized all over the world to demonstrate , protest and draw attention to this issue.

​All across America the Obama administration and activist LGBT groups have forced the matter of transgenderism. It's impacting schools, communities, places of business, houses of worship, our military, and out of necessity, has become part of family discussions. But is the term 'transgender' even an accurate one? Can a person really change their gender? In light of the recent tidal wave forced by the Obama administration, what impact does this have on the public safety of all?

Joining Jim to discuss this issue was Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet. Dr. Vliet is a medical doctor and is chief medical officer of Med Expert Chile, an international medical consulting company based in Santiago, Chile. She is also past director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) and has an active U.S. medical practice in Tucson, Arizona, and Dallas, Texas.

Dr. Vliet noted that when she is treating a male who has had gender reassignment surgery, that patient still has a prostate gland and she has to measure PSA because the patient, like all males, is still at risk for prostate cancer. In other words, the 'she' is still biologically a 'he'.

Jim referenced a CNS News article regarding Dr. Paul McHugh, Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins University and former Psychiatrist in Chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital. The article indicated that he studied transgender people for 40 years and that it's a scientific fact that transgender men do not become women and transgender women do not become men. They become feminized men or masculine women; counterfeits or impersonators of the sex they identify with.

Dr. Vliet explained that Dr. McHugh eventually asked the following question: Is it worth the cost and risk of surgery and what are the outcomes? In other words, since one motto of physicians is 'Do no harm', is the risk worth the benefits? Long-term studies were then designed to see what the outcomes would be for such patients.

Interestingly, the Karolinska Institute in Sweden has also looked at this issue. They've conducted the largest study of transgender patients in the world. They studied 324 patients who had transgender surgery over 30 years. What they found was that later in life there was a 20 fold greater risk of suicide for those who had reassignment surgery compared with those who did not.

Dr. McHugh didn't find a higher rate of suicide in the Johns Hopkins studies but he did find that post surgically the results were no better psychologically in terms of social adjustment, depression and other measures. That led Dr. McHugh to the recommendation that Johns Hopkins should stop doing gender reassignment surgeries.

Jim also noted that the American College of Pediatricians is urging educators and legislators to reject all policies that condition children to accept as normal a life of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex. They feel that parents who harm a child with dangerous hormones or sterilization surgery are committing child abuse.

Dr. Vliet communicated that this was a very powerful and constructive statement because contrary to the ideology and political correctness on this issue in the media, what the data shows is that of children who appear to be confused about their gender, more than 80% of them grow out of it in a few years. She also believes that to give a child puberty suppressing drugs actually sets that child up for many serious health risks later on and can lead to permanent infertility.

Much more is shared as Jim and Dr. Vliet circumvent the media 'spin' and look at the medical facts that affect this issue on this vital edition of Crosstalk.

Elaine Donnelly

  MP3 ​​| Order

​Elaine Donnelly is the president of the Center for Military Readiness, an independent, nonpartisan public policy organization that specializes in military/social issues. Founded in 1993, CMR advocates high single standards in all forms of military training and sound priorities in the making of military/social policies.

In December of 2015, the Secretary of Defense made an announcement regarding women's exemptions from direct ground combat assignments. If you're minimally qualified you could not be assigned to the infantry but now you will be if you are in the military. When announced, it was portrayed as something good for women but it's not because women can serve at just about every job in the armed forces. Now, military forces will have the right to assign a woman into any unit even if they know that injury rates are much higher, even in training.

The Pentagon denies that there will be any change in standards. They also deny that there will be gender quotas. The Secretary of the Navy alone wants 25% of the Navy and Marine Corps to be women. Elaine believes that if you want that many women on each ship, and you don't have enough women to meet that goal, you'll have to lower the standards.

She feels this is a social experiment that will cause a decline in military readiness. How do we know this? The Marine Corp initiated 3 years of intense research beginning in 2012. This culminated in a set of task forces that were deployed to the West Coast. For 9 months there were mixed gender units and single gender units that underwent exercises. In 69% of these task force exercises, the gender mixed group did not do as well as the all-male groups.

Elaine warned that in this kind of environment women do not have an equal opportunity to survive or to help fellow soldiers survive. This is the reality that this administration is trying to ignore.

In 1979 Congress decided that it would be administratively unworkable and militarily disastrous to have women involved in Selective Service on the same basis as men. In spite of this there was a move approved April 27th by the House Armed Services Committee to approve legislation to draft America's daughters (ages 18-26) using the Selective Service Act.

To summarize, the National Defense Authorization legislation is being debated right now. The House has stricken the requirement that women register for Selective Service. However, this is still a potential threat in the U.S. Senate. Their vote comes up next week.

On the transgender front, Elaine believes the Department of Defense is treating this like a civil rights issue. Her concern surrounds those who would take advantage of the destruction of any respect for gender realities. She feels that if the military says that gender doesn't matter, and you have someone who wants to enter private areas of the opposite sex, you're inviting trouble because in the military if you feel uncomfortable, you can't simply quit your job. Once you join the military, you have no choice at all.

Elaine also debunks pro-transgender statistics from the Rand Corporation, she notes the increasing number of male-on-male assaults in the military and other concerns as the government continues to make changes to our military.

​Guest:  Alex Newman

​Listen:   MP3 ​​| Order

​The United Nations has developed a 15 year master plan of global control over all of humanity that leaves no one behind. The new goals and targets went into effect January 1, 2016.

How will it affect you and the planet? Joining Jim to discuss the evidence was Alex Newman. Alex is an American freelance journalist and is also president of Liberty Sentinel Media, Inc. As a freelance journalist he writes for the New American and this Crosstalk discussed his article: UN Agenda 2030: A recipe for Global Socialism.

According to Alex, Agenda 2030 is a culmination of past attempts by the United Nations at less ambitious and more abstract meetings over similar goals. This new agenda contains 17 goals and 169 targets that cover every aspect of life. It's for every person on the planet and you cannot escape from this.

How did the U.N. plan to get every nation on earth to fall in line when there are so many different forms of government ranging from rogue dictatorships to communist regimes to sovereign constitutional setups? Alex believes it has to do with the incentive structure. Perhaps third world nations will be obtaining wealth redistribution benefits whereas America and European nation may benefit from more internationalism, more power for international organizations, more excuses for taxes, etc.

Some might wonder why this is so bad when the preamble speaks of freeing the human race from poverty, healing the nations and ending hunger. Alex noted that dictators and tyrants have always been masters at 'concealing their agenda behind lofty rhetoric.' So if you want to control people and take away their liberty and money, you don't come right out and say you're going to do that. Instead you play to people's emotions so it's only natural that they're going to couch the agenda in terms that sound reasonable and even appealing.

For example, take a look at what the U.N. means when they talk about sustainable development. Alex went to the Rio Plus 20 Summit/the U.N. Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro in 2012. He asked U.N. bureaucrats and government officials to define the concept and he received many different answers. The prevailing idea is that humanity is unsustainable (we consume/produce too much and are too wealthy) and to be sustainable, we have to reduce consumption and our standard of living. However, when you scratch beneath the surface, what's there is much more sinister. Alex discovered that sustainable development is not as scientific as some might claim. Instead it's a catch-all term for a number of agendas including population reduction, earth worship and pantheism.

What does Agenda 2030 mean when it plans to reduce inequality within and among countries? Does Agenda 2030 involve universal health coverage? Universal vaccines? How does education fit into the U.N.'s planned goals? These and other questions and concerns are dealt with on this important edition of Crosstalk.
