On July 12 of this year an opinion piece was written in the Wall Street Journal entitled, 'Smart Cities Will Know Everything About You.' This sounds like everyone's personal privacy is at risk. Just how far have we come?

Appearing with Jim to discuss this was Katherine Albrecht. Katherine is an internationally known privacy researcher, consumer advocate, bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio host. She holds a Doctorate in Human Development and consumer Education from Harvard. She has authored pro-privacy legislation and has testified before the Federal Trade Commission and numerous state legislatures.

Katherine and Jim cover many points related to the issue of privacy including:

--The shocking privacy intrusion characteristics built into Windows 10.
--Google's new photo ap allegedly keeps uploading pictures to Google's servers
even after deleting the ap.
--Will the home of the future be embedded with receivers that pick up signals
(perhaps from your computer) and transmit the information into the mobile phone
network to be received by government agents, marketers, academic researchers
and/or medical authorities?
--Wireless remote accessibility to the features of your car.
--Toll road transponders that actually may be tracking you wherever you go.
--Toys with built-in recording devices.
--Drones that have password cracking technology.
--Eye scans at the airport.
--Are we any closer to being able to initiate the biblical 'mark of the beast'?

Jim began by noting there is a massive push underway to undermine Christianity and to change the moral fabric of our nation. For example, this morning it was announced that for the first time in American history, the White House has hired a transgender individual (Raffi Freedman-Gurspan) for a staff post.

While this is going on, Christians are being purged from their posts as county clerks, judges and chaplains. Classroom teachers are being instructed to say 'friends' or 'students' rather than 'girls' or 'boys.' The Boy scouts have capitulated to now allow for openly homosexual scoutmasters. Courts are telling Christian bakers they cannot refuse to bake a wedding cake for so-called same-sex weddings. Even some churches are bowing to the tide of the times by ordaining homosexuals and transgenders.

Where is this headed and what are the ramifications? Jim sought answers from two guests. One was Peter LaBarbera. Peter is the founder and president of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality.

The second guest was Scott Lively. Scott is the president of Abiding Truth Ministries. He is a pastor, attorney, author, public speaker and pro-family defender. He is also the author of 'Pink Swastika.'

Scott sees the slippery slope leading to the recent Supreme Court same-sex marriage decision as going back to the start of cultural Marxism with Herbert Marcuse and the Frankfort School. He was the teacher of Saul Alinsky and laid out the radical agenda that gays have adopted as their own from the time of the Stonewall riots of 1969.

Scott believes what we're seeing today is the end of a very long march through the institutions where our opponents are 'mopping up.' Christians, on the other hand, are entering a new phase where we will be increasingly persecuted and punished.

Peter added to Scott's comments by noting that homosexuals are now attacking what they view as religious-based discrimination which they also see as unacceptable. This has placed religious freedom in a cultural battle with homosexual so-called 'rights' and the more 'rights' given by the government to homosexuals, the more gay power grows.

As this Crosstalk moves along you'll learn about:

--Scott's lawsuit involving an LGBT advocacy group in East Africa that is trying to charge him with crimes against humanity.

--A case where conversion therapy was deemed to be 'consumer fraud.'

--The guest's thoughts on the Raffi Freedman-Gurspan hiring.

--The 5-stage process that Scott believes the homosexual movement uses: tolerance, acceptance, celebration, forced participation in the culture and finally punishment of all dissenters.

--The Equality Act(Senate Bill 1858 & House Resolution-3185)that seeks to expand the 1964 Civil Rights Act to include sexual orientation in public education, public facilities, accommodations, employment, etc.

...and much more.

Guest: Tom DeWeese

From September 25th through the 27th, the United Nations will host a sustainable development summit in New York. This new agenda is said to be guided by the purposes and principles of the charter of the United Nations. It's called the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Specific goals of the plan are to begin implementation on January 1, 2016.

Joining Jim to discuss sustainable development and the 2030 Agenda was Tom DeWeese. Tom is the president of the American Policy Center. He is one of the nation's leading advocates of individual liberty, free enterprise, private property rights, personal privacy, back-to-basics education and American sovereignty and independence and protecting our Constitutionally guaranteed rights.

According to Tom, sustainable development is a comprehensive blueprint for changing human society while using the environment as the excuse to control consumption patterns and growth in our communities. Social justice is a major point as well. However, he believes social justice within the context of sustainable development involves redistribution of wealth and top-down control.

Sustainable development is the policy of Agenda 21. Agenda 21 was first introduced to the world at the Earth Summit of 1992 in Rio de Janeiro. It called for every nation on earth to implement these ideas in order to change human society.

Tom described the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development as Agenda 21 on steroids. Those promoting this new effort are not only involving the environment, they're also getting involved in health care, economics and even gender equality.

This program will also look at how this agenda helps show the U.N.'s contradiction between controlling mortality rates while allowing abortion; their desire to empower women and girls; how the production and consumption of products and international trade agreements will be affected; global solidarity; legal identity for all including birth registration and more.

Host : Jim Schneider

Guest: Usama Dakdok

Listen: MP3 | Order

Usama Dakdok is the founder of the Straight Way of Grace Ministry. He was born and raised in Egypt in a Christian home. He learned Islam in the schools and also studied Shariah. He speaks fluent Arabic. He began the Straight Way of Grace Ministry as he travels across the country revealing the truth about Islam. He has translated the Qur'an and has authored the books, 'Exposing the Truth About the Qur'an.' He hosts a daily radio program on VCY America entitled, 'Revealing the Truth About Islam.'

Some people around the nation are receiving hard-bound copies of 'The Holy Qur'an—Color Coded Translation with Arabic Text.' Why is this happening? Usama believes Muslims are trying to convince Americans that the Qur'an is holy when it's not.

Usama went on to describe how liberal, wicked, ungodly churches are welcoming Muslims. Since such churches are proud to have the Qur'an in the church, Muslims are thinking that perhaps they can get others like Vic Eliason and Jim Schneider to read the Qur'an, hence the wider distribution of their alleged holy book.

Interestingly, Usama noted how these Muslims haven't even read the Qur'an they are sending out, either in Arabic or English. He began his defense of this point by having Jim open the Qur'an to chapter 5 verse 51 where it says:

'Oh ye who believe, take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors.'

Then Usama had Jim move to verses 72 and 73:

'They do blaspheme who say, 'Allah is Christ the son of Mary.' They do blaspheme who say, 'Allah is one of three in a trinity.'

What is the punishment for 'blasphemers' who believe that Christ is the son of Mary and who believe in the trinitarian aspect of the Godhead? Usama had Jim read the following in chapter 47 verse 4:

'Therefore when ye meet the unbelievers in fight, smite at their necks.'

Usama noted that the phrase 'in fight' is not in the original Arabic but the meaning is the same. When you meet the Christians who believe the things noted above, cut off their heads.

Jim then read what it says in the cover letter received with the copy of the Qur'an that was mailed to VCY America. It describes Islam as bringing together faith in one God and then noted that this faith is:

'A virtuous character imbued with humbleness, integrity and compassion and the establishment of peace and social justice in the world.'

How can Islam claim to nurture such characteristics in people when its holy book calls for the beheading of what it describes as blasphemers? This contradiction becomes even more apparent as this program moves along with Jim and Usama also discussing the following points:

--The danger of Shariah finance.
--Islam's view of divorce.
--Does Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam accurately teach the Qur'an?
--Islamic man in Dubai lets his daughter drown rather than let her be touched by
--A 10 year old boy was beaten for wrongly reciting the Qur'an.
--Why the attraction by some to want to join ISIS?
--What is Chrislam?

...and much more.

The weather always seems to be a topic of interest among people. When there's severe weather, media programming is suspended so that the public can be kept safe. Many people watch or listen to late day newscasts for the sole purpose of finding out what the weather will be like for the upcoming day.

Tied in with the weather is the subject of global warming. In fact, our government continues to try and convince us that global warming is the greatest threat to mankind. However, from Genesis 8:22 we know that the seasons will continue and day and night will not cease.

Joining Jim to discuss weather was Michael Oard. Michael is a retired meteorologist with the National Weather Service who served as a lead forecaster for 20 years in Great Falls, Montana. He has both his bachelors and masters in Atmospheric Science. He's published numerous articles in support of biblical creation and has authored several books including 'The New Weather Book' a part of the 'Wonders of Creation Series.'

Michael's book begins by establishing the fact that Jesus is the creator of the world which includes the weather. Does this mean he created dangerous weather? Michael believes he didn't at the beginning because God said that the creation was very good. Dangerous weather came about because of man's willful sin (Genesis 3) yet this kind of weather not only shows that the earth has been cursed by sin but it demonstrates the power of God acting in nature.

Beginning with some interesting facts about thunderstorms and lightning, this program answers numerous weather related questions, including some that deal with the creation of the earth. For example:

--Why is the sun the ultimate cause of weather?
--What do red skies in the morning mean? In the evening?
--Does the amount of salt in the oceans provide a clue as to the age of the earth?
--Why is the color of snow white?
--What is the largest recorded hailstone?
--Why have warm climate fossils been found in the north?
--What should we know about climate change?
