​​Jim began this edition of Crosstalk with disturbing news that the Navy is planning to name a ship after the late homosexual activist and San Francisco politician Harvey Milk.

Jim then moved into an overview of the GOP convention. Some of the points he highlighted included:

--Donald Trump's address was the longest acceptance speech in four decades.
--Trump discussed out of control/illegal immigration, destructive trade deals,
calamitous foreign policy, an imploding economy, historic unemployment,
skyrocketing violent crime, the escalating terrorist threat and rampant

modern history.'
--Trump said that the federal minimum wage should rise to $10.

Here are some of the headlines Jim noted concerning the just completed Democratic convention:

with a history of missionary work in Central America as well as being fluent in
the Spanish language.
--Kaine is said to have a history of embracing Islamists.

--Clinton indicates she will be relying on Obama when he leaves office.
--Clinton said she's not looking to take away anyone's guns or repeal the 2nd
--According to Nancy Pelosi, Trump is leading Clinton among white males because of
guns, gays and God.
--A moment of silence for fallen police officers at the DNC was marred by chants
of 'Black Lives Matter!'.
--Georgia Democratic Representative Hank Johnson reportedly compared Israeli
settlers (Jews in the West Bank) to termites.
--Democrats were outraged that Chick-fil-A served food both inside and outside
of the convention arena.
--Bernie Sanders supporters burned an Israeli flag at the convention.
--Bernie Sanders has left the Democratic party to become an independent.
--Democrats approved a platform that calls for forcing Americans to pay for free
abortions for women, a repeal of the Hyde Amendment, they applaud last year's
decision by the Supreme Court that recognizes that LGBT person's have the right
to marry the person they love, that climate change is a real and urgent threat,
they wish to create a path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrants
and more.

Jim then asked listeners if in the aftermath of the conventions, has your position been solidified or are you still wavering as to who to vote for when the November election comes up?

​Jim began this edition of Crosstalk by reviewing the circumstances Nehemiah was faced with as he sought to rebuild the broken down walls of Jerusalem and the gates that had been destroyed by fire.

Even with permission from the king, permission that was confirmed via letters to the governors of Trans-Euphrates, there was opposition from Sanballat the Horonite, Tobiah the Amonite, Geshem the Arab and the men of Ashdod.

Nehemiah's enemies communicated insults, threats of violence and even attempted a meeting with him to discuss the situation because of the false idea that the Jews were plotting to revolt.

As we attempt to 'rebuild the walls' of righteousness in our nation by living godly lives, we can also be met with opposition. In spite of such opposition, do you continue to praise the Lord? After all, the Bible teaches that the joy of the Lord is your strength (Nehemiah 8:10).

As Jim continued, his goal was to fill this program with praise to our God as he had listeners call in with an answer to the question, 'I'm praising the Lord because...'

​Yesterday Crosstalk looked at the effect of Islamization in Europe. From that perspective it's easy for some in the U.S. to claim there's nothing for us to be concerned about because the problem is on the other side of the Atlantic. Besides, we have a constitutional republic that would never allow for Shariah law.

Those excuses collapse under the simple reminder of incidents like 9-11, what occurred in Little Rock, Arkansas, Fort Hood, the Boston Marathon bombing, Chattanooga, Tennessee, and the San Bernardino incident.

For discussion regarding Islamization in our nation, Jim welcomed back Soeren Kern. Soeren is a distinguished senior fellow of the Gatestone Institute, a non-partisan, not-for-profit international policy council and think tank dedicated to educating the public about the institutions of democracy and the rule of law, human rights, a free and strong economy, a military capable of ensuring peace at home and in the free world, energy independence and insuring the public stay informed of threats to our individual liberty, sovereignty and free speech. Soeren is also a senior analyst for Transatlantic Relations at the Strategic Studies Group. He specializes in European politics as well as U.S. and European defense and security related issues. He is a regular commentator about European politics and transatlantic relations. He is a dual citizen of the United States and Germany.

There are those like President Obama who claim that Islam has always been part of America's heritage. Soeren believes that such statements are an attempt by political elites across the Western world to 'mainstream' Islam and make it appear that there's nothing inherently unique to Islam compared to any other religious group. However, the earliest mosque in America was founded in North Dakota in 1929 making Islam's history in our nation a very short one.

The population of Muslims in the U.S. is said to be anywhere from 2.5 to 5 million depending upon the source. What's more important to Soeren is where this is going. He cited the Pew Research Foundation that recently published a story about the rise of Islam around the world and it indicated that Islam would be the second largest religion in the U.S. by 2050. This means there would be more Muslims than Jews in America.

The driving force for the advancement of Islam in the U.S. began with Muslims who were college educated. In the last 10-15 years we've seen a migration of Muslims from a lower socio-economic level. Driving this latter fact is the situation in the Middle East but there's also another factor. Within Islam is the concept of Hijra. That involves jihad through migration which was expressed by Mohammed as the duty of every Muslim.

Soeren also noted that the Islamic impact in our education system is part of the broader multi-culturalism movement. This movement believes all cultures are equal therefore we are told we need to understand Islam and one of the ways to do that is to help the younger generations accept Islam as a normal feature of American society.

As the program continues, Soeren discussed the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), House Resolution 569 that attempts to shut down any criticism of Islam, Islam's goal for our judicial system, the Syrian refugees coming to America, the phenomenon of 'Chrislam', ISIS training camps in the U.S. and much more.

​Islam is advancing rapidly in Europe as well as here in the United States. As a result there's been an increase in crime and religious conflict that's been escalating at alarming proportions. Government organizations as well as the media often cover these incidents up because they claim such individuals merely have a distorted view of Islam. After all, to them, Islam is a religion of peace. This shows that leaders in Europe as well as the U.S. continue to drink at the well of complacency on this topic therefore little is accomplished in terms of slowing much less halting the advance of Islam.

Joining Jim to discuss this disturbing trend was Soeren Kern. Soeren is a distinguished senior fellow of the Gatestone Institute, a non-partisan, not-for-profit international policy council and think tank dedicated to educating the public about the institutions of democracy and the rule of law, human rights, a free and strong economy, a military capable of ensuring peace at home and in the free world, energy independence and insuring the public stay informed of threats to our individual liberty, sovereignty and free speech. Soeren is also a senior analyst for Transatlantic Relations at the Strategic Studies Group. He specializes in European politics as well as U.S. and European defense and security related issues. He is a regular commentator about European politics and transatlantic relations. He is a dual citizen of the United States and Germany.

About 10 years ago a Roman Catholic bishop in the Netherlands began calling on European Christians to begin calling God, 'Allah' as a way to build bridges with Muslims. As Soeren began doing more research, he discovered that God and Allah are two completely different entities. From there he wrote an article about it. It went viral and he began getting requests to do more research and writing about Islam.

Soeren believes there's two ways to view Islam from a Christian point of view. The whole purpose of Islam is to deny the divinity of Jesus Christ yet from a geopolitical perspective it's dedicated to world conquest and placing the planet under the submission of Allah.

Soeren described how after World War II an entire generation of males was wiped out. This meant there weren't enough males to run the factories. As a result, Germany, the Netherlands and France began importing migrant labor. Germany began importing their labor force from Turkey. The understanding was that eventually these individuals would return to their home nations but they stayed. So over the last 40 to 50 years, Soeren described this situation as being in 'slow motion' but in the last 10 to 15 years the pace has 'snowballed' into a large political and social problem for almost every nation in Europe.

As this program moved along, it took a specific look at Islam in France, Germany and Britain, how these nations are one generation ahead of the U.S. in terms of Islamization and why European secular lawmakers and leaders are letting this happen.

Tomorrow, Jim and Soeren will take a look at how Islam has been affecting the United States.

With election talk seemingly everywhere there's debate once again over how we vote for the president. Should it be via the electoral system as outlined in our Constitution or should it be changed to a national popular vote?

Jim looked at this issue with Hans von Spakovsky who is a legal senior fellow in the Heritage Foundation's Edwin Meese III Center for Legal and Judicial Studies. He is an authority on a number of issues including that of voter fraud and voter ID, enforcement of federal voting rights laws, administration of elections and voting equipment standards and protecting the integrity of elections. Before joining Heritage in 2008, he served two years as a member of the Federal Election Commission, the authority charged with enforcing campaign finance laws for congressional and presidential elections. He has also formerly worked at the Justice Department.

Article 2 section 1 of the Constitution deals with the election process for president of the U.S. This is accomplished through the electoral college. In this system, each state gets a certain number of electoral college votes. So when you enter the voting booth, you are actually voting for the electoral college delegate who will then vote for the president.

Hans explained that the reason for implementation of the electoral college system is due to the fact that the founders were concerned with making sure that rural, less populated areas of our nation would not be neglected. They assumed that if we had a national popular vote, candidates would only have to go to big cities and urban areas and they could ignore the rest of the nation in order to secure election to office.

Under our electoral college system, each state gets the number of votes equal to the number of senators and congressmen they have. This means that even the smallest states have at least 3 electoral college votes. It's true that candidates won't spend as much time in those states but at least they won't be totally neglected, which they would, under a national popular vote system.

John Koza, creator of the scratch-off lottery ticket, has been instrumental in the push for the national popular vote idea. This idea is a state compact or agreement between the states. 11 have already passed it. Once enough states have passed it that represent 270 electoral college votes, the compact then goes into force and each state that passed it agrees that the electoral college votes in their state will be awarded not based upon the vote in their state but instead upon the national popular vote.
