In September of 1787, thirty-nine men met in Philadelphia to finish and sign a document we now know as the United States Constitution. They pledged their ‘lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor’ to the cause of liberty and the principles contained therein. On September 17th, we celebrated Constitution and Citizenship day-a time to commemorate the brave signers and bold words that entrusted to us a Constitutional Republic. The birth pangs, initiated by the Declaration of Independence finally brought forth a new nation unlike any the world had ever seen. Unfortunately, some people don’t see this document or the story behind it as something to celebrate. Democratic candidate for President, Beto O’Rourke, recently told a crowd that “We can mark the creation of this country not at the Fourth of July, 1776, but August 20, 1619, when the first kidnapped African was brought to this country against his will and in bondage, and as a slave- built the greatness, and the success, and the wealth, that neither he or his descendants would ever be able to participate in or enjoy." Admittedly, it took America a while to recognize her duplicity concerning the slave system, but perhaps O’Rourke has forgotten that over 350,000 (mostly white) men died to free the slaves, and that the fourteenth amendment was added to the Constitution which guaranteed their full rights as American citizens. So, what does that mean for us today? Can we rewrite history for the sake of a politically correct narrative? Does the Constitution still deliver on its promise to protect the life, liberty and happiness of ALL American people? This program explores the history, intent, and current application of the US Constitution Host: Sam Rohrer Co-host: Gary Dull Guest: David New

Freedom and Unity in America
June 28, 2020 • Isaac Crockett, Sam Rohrer, Gary Dull, Dr. Joe Green
Words matter but so do definitions. Especially in today’s hyper charged, politically correct culture. Words and phrases that meant one thing ten years ago, have been hijacked to mean something else altogether. With tensions running high over the tragic death of George Floyd on May 25 , what seems to be a simple redefinition of terms is actually proving to be quite deadly. On this program, host Isaac Crockett, will be talking with an African American pastor from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania to get his take on all that’s happening across the nation. Dr. Joe Green joins joins the discussion about real issues plaguing the black community, tracing the problem and the solution back to where it belongs and separating the term racism from bigotry and prejudice. Yes, racism is as old as time. The enslavement of people groups beginning in the some of the world’s earliest civilizations-Persia, Greece, Rome and even on the African continent with blacks enslaving blacks at an alarming rate due to tribal conflict. It only goes to show that the heart is desperately wicked-as the Bible tells us. Bent on elevating self and mistreating others, racism is a heart issue that can only be solved by the gospel and the acknowledgement of the Creator God who has made us equally loved and valued in His sight.

The Left’s War Against the Police: Their Gain, America’s Pain
June 21, 2020 • Sam Rohrer, John Guandolo
Wikipedia tells us the central idea of Cultural Marxism is to soften up and prepare Western Civilization for economic Marxism after a gradual, relentless, sustained attack on every institution of Western culture, including schools, literature, art, film, the Judeo-Christian worldview tradition, marriage and the family, sexual mores, national sovereignty, etcetera. The attacks are usually framed in Marxist terms as a class struggle between oppressors and oppressed; the members of the latter class allegedly include women, minorities, homosexuals, and adherents of non-Western ideologies such as Islam. Cultural Marxism has been described as "the cultural branch of globalism.” (www.conservapedia.com/Cultural_Marxism) This definition, while lengthy, is the prelude to the program today. It encapsulates all that’s taking place across our nation as calls to defund the police are taken up in places like Minneapolis, New York City and Atlanta, Georgia. The police (and all those in positions of power-whether white or black) are considered the oppressors; the African American man or woman (specifically those who feel disenfranchised by the ‘system’) are the oppressed. Group names like Antifa, Black Lives Matter, Democrat Socialist, Jihadi, the Muslim Brotherhood and others all subscribe to the same ideology with varying agendas. The end result, according to author Dinesh D’Souza is a “socialist state that reduces its citizens to abject conformity by crushing the independence of spirit and mind.” It’s the opposite of what our Founders believed and what the Bible teaches and it’s what our guest, John Guandolo with Understanding the Threat Organization is going to share with us.
The Fourteenth Amendment: The Federal Government on Steroids
June 14, 2020
The fourteenth amendment of the United States Constitution, section one, reads like: All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the Unites States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws. History tells us this amendment was ratified in July of 1868-one of three amendments dealing with slavery and their newfound rights to be called citizens of the United States and benefiters of all that entailed. But somehow, one hundred years later, this amendment has been hijacked and interpreted to absorb the power of the states and transfer it to the Federal government; and create rights from thin air for abortion, same sex marriage, or any other so called ‘right’ that could be shoehorned into this ‘guarantee of freedom’. Truly, this has been the bane of our nation ever since and guest, Constitutional Attorney David New, joins the team to explain more on this program titled, "The Fourteenth Amendment: The Federal Government on Steroids."
