Trent England serves as Vice President for Strategic Initiatives at the Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs and directs the Center for the Constitution & Freedom. Trent is National Coordinator for Liberty Foundation of America and an adjunct fellow of the Freedom Foundation and has directed the foundation's 'Save Our States' project. He is a contributor to two books,'The Heritage Guide to the Constitution' and 'One Nation Under Arrest: How Crazy Laws, Rogue Prosecutors and Activist Judges Threaten Your Liberty.'

How does the electoral college system work? As Trent described it, near the beginning of Article 2 Section 1 of the Constitution it tells us how the president is to be elected. It's to be state-by-state. The political power is distributed exactly the same as it is in Congress. The smallest states get 3 electoral votes based upon their two members of the U.S. Senate and their single member of the House. On the other end of the scale you have a large state like New York that has 2 Senators and 27 House members for a total of 29 electoral votes. Each state is then given the power to decide how to represent itself with those votes and according to Trent, this is what the popular vote/electoral college controversy is all about.

The state holds an election between the candidates for president and whoever gets the most votes in that state gets all the electoral votes from that state. Thomas Jefferson came up with that idea because it maximized the political impact of Virginia in his day.

There are two exceptions. In Nebraska and Maine they break up their electoral votes. They do the same with two of their electoral votes but they apportion out the electoral votes that represent each congressional district. This means that in 2012, President Obama won a single electoral vote from Nebraska.

The main point to remember is that under the electoral college system, each state gets to represent itself. Trent believes that the national popular vote is an attempt to trick states into giving away their electoral votes based upon the nationwide outcome.

Would a national popular vote affect the Constitution? Does the concept of a national popular vote bring more power to the people in terms of the democratic strength of their votes as we might be led to believe or is it actually just the opposite? Who are the movers and shakers in the national popular vote movement? These are just a few questions that are answered on this vital edition of Crosstalk.

Usama Dakdok is the founder and director of the Straight Way of Grace Ministry.

Jim began this edition of Crosstalk by mentioning a Palestinian video that's gone viral that instructs Islamic jihadists how to stab a Jew quickly and efficiently in order to inflict maximum injury. Even the Jewish Press is reporting that Arab stabbing attacks on Jews have increased significantly in 2014.

This was just the first of numerous news stories pointing to the reality of an Islamic agenda that is relentlessly attempting to impact the world. Other stories included:

--Few sources have been reporting that the pilot of AirAsia Flight QZ 8501 was a devout Muslim.

--Ismail Abdullah Brinsley, who shot and killed two NYPD officers before killing himself, had an image of a page of the Qur'an on his Facebook site.

--Muslims torch 940 cars across France on New Year's Eve.

--Human organ trafficking involvement by ISIS is being used to fund terror across the Middle East. Donors are not volunteering their organs for harvesting. Instead the organs are being forcibly removed from those who are still breathing.

--The Islamic State (ISIS) is planning an attack on the Queen's guards and the royal family in England.

--A Danish couple is beaten with chains on Christmas Eve by those following the teachings of Islam.

--13 Christian families killed in Iraq after Christmas.

--A Muslim leader from India is claiming that every child is born a Muslim but that the parents and society are responsible for converting the child to other religions.

--A Muslim group is suing the U.S. Navy for beard discrimination.

--An Islamic vocabulary lesson is part of a common core high school English class.

According to Usama, Muslims now have the 'upper hand' in England and other areas of Europe. He believes that a 5-1/2% Muslim concentration is the tipping point. Combine this with the fact that President Obama wants to bring massive numbers of Muslim immigrants to America along with the ignorance of American churches regarding Islam and you can see why the Islamic agenda seems to be relentless.

Beginning with some biblical instruction concerning Elijah and the prophets of Baal, Vic came to a point that is critical to understanding the main thrust of this Crosstalk. Vic qoted from 1 Kings 18 where it says, "And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? If the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word."

Vic then asked if things aren't that way now as people are being challenged to make that decision and they remain in the valley of decision.

This would seem to be the case, even at the highest levels of our government, as beginning with words of adulation from Representative Rush Holt of New Jersey (and an introduction by Speaker of the House John Boehner), Imam Hamad Ahmad Chebli of the Islamic Society of Central Jersey took to the House floor. He delivered a prayer declaring Allah as the most gracious, the most merciful, the sustainer of the world, the master of the day of judgment.

Vic played the audio cut of the Imam and then took calls from Crosstalk listeners to gauge their response to this prayer of blasphemy against Almighty God.

Jim opened this edition of Crosstalk by asking listeners the following question: How many times have you heard the phrase, 'I'm going green'. Today we have government's and businesses that communicate they are growing green. Schools say much the same thing while also indicating the ways they are trying to bring 'being green' into the classroom.

Is going green for the sake of the planet the best way to go or is there a better way? The guest who appeared on this Crosstalk believes there is a better way and that way is 'BLUE'.

J.D. King is an independent filmmaker specializing in socio-environmental documentaries. He was home educated through high-school and holds a B.A. in Business Management from Thomas Edison State College. He is passionate about the outdoors, freedom, and seeking the best way to steward planet Earth, for the good of humanity and the glory of God.

Why does J.D. Have reservations about the 'green' movement? It's because the connotation involves over-regulation and solutions that are brought about by people who are not connected with the landscape.

In response, J.D. has produced a documentary that counters the 'green' movement titled, 'BLUE'. In this case the title stands for (B)eautify, (L)iberate, (U)tilize and (E)njoy. The documentary features input from Lord Christopher Monckton, E. Calvin Beisner of the Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation, Robert Zubrin and others. It touches on issues such as the destruction of the timber and mining industries in the Western states and the socio-economic devastation that's occurred as a result.

On this Crosstalk you'll discover why J.D. believes the roots of the 'green' movement are designed to restructure the social order of the world, how freedom is restricted by the 'green' movement, why people are losing their lives because of it, how the topic of population plays into this and more.
