Enjoy it and share it but most of all, thank you for listening and for choosing The Truth Podcast Network network.

This is the Truth Network and get ready.

It's one of America's most important, influential and respected voices on cultural and political issues and apologist Christian political advocate and author.

Here is the founder and assuming America foundation in modern culture brought you today by the America foundation on the campus of Mid-America Baptist college and Mid-America Baptist theological seminary, Memphis, Tennessee, and I'm so grateful that we get to record from Mid-America each and every day the great campus.

If you're looking for school to go to. We would sure love to have you known and check out what's happening at Mid-America so I want to do today. We have a guest coming in the second half of the show, but first I want talk about issue that's going on the country right now and really around the world left the issue when Russia and the Ukraine, and now the United States is a big heart of what happened there, and a lot of Christians are asking will, why should I care about what had happened in the Ukraine. Does it really matter to the United States. You know what really does so only really been a history of the nation are talk about the history, the conflict want talk specifically about what is an issue between Pres. Putin and Pres. Biden. What could happen in this scenario, and then we'll talk about why Christians should care.

So stick around. We got a lot to cover here will start with the history you like me, you know, I started here in Ukraine in the news and to be honest, it's been a long time, but the guys school geography class article in the workplace was the history of the nation and really didn't think much about it but now we hear more more about it on the news each and every day and I figure it's time for me to find a little bit more share with you some of things I learned.

Maybe give you something talk about at that watercooler office today or school or where we may be start with the history so Ukraine became a nation and in 1922 and ended as a nation in 1991, but not as praying we know today.

It was the Ukrainian Socialist Republic was part of the old Soviet Union, so some of our younger listeners you if you studied history you know that there was once an evil empire. If you will. It was kind of at odds with United States for many many years.

What was called the Cold War and they were known as the Soviet Union was basically a collection of independent countries that made up this mass organization called the Soviet Union and they broke up under the leadership of Pres. Reagan. You might remember the famous quote. He said Mr. Gorbachev, tear down that wall and that was really the beginning of the dismantling of the Soviet Union. So after that time, the Ukrainian socialist Republic became what we know today as the Ukraine is not just small countries, either by landmass Ukraine is the second largest country in Europe, second only to Russia. So now you will begin to see what similar countries, particularly in Europe are concerned what's going on is not just a little tiny little dot on the map know Ukraine is big second largest country in Europe and so for geography was so you'll know on your map. Ukraine shares borders with Belarus are to the north of Ukraine is the country Belarus and then Poland, Slovakia and Hungary are to the west of Ukraine, Romania and Moldova to the cell and then Ukraine shares a coastline with a C a is and the Black Sea and the Black Sea was always something that was a body of water that was a contingent during the Cold War because the Soviet Union always wanted to try to get warm water ports in other words, so Cold War they were and most of the work were in areas where water was not warm, it was difficult to navigate. Another problem associated with extremely cold temperatures. So you might've heard of the black Savior, maybe fusing the movie the Hunt for red October. Other movies you part of the block say that it give you an idea coastline for the Ukraine is a long the Black Sea is the second largest landmass is also the most populous country in Europe in a city that you referred to a lot of the news.

If you watch news everyday are your talk about it. Yeah yeah is the capital city is also the largest city in the Ukraine scenario is the second largest landmass is the eighth most populous. But it's also the third poorest country in Europe and a lot of times you'll find you know in extremely poor countries. There is a lot of corruption and that is the same case here in Ukraine. There's an extreme amount of political corruption in the Ukraine and to make matters worse, not only are they a people that are struggling. It's a poor country. It's a very corrupt country. They also have the third-largest military in your second largest this branch, the third-largest is a Ukraine so you see it's very important worldwide skill, what's going on in the Ukraine is a large country they got a big military and if there is an escalation of a military conflict. It really did not only affect just Europe really affect the entire world.

So that's a little bit about the geography of the population a little bit about the history and is important as we have our discussion today to remember K. It was once part of the Soviet Union, which is a mighty mighty empire the world for many many years and some people believe now I don't know if it's true with a lot of people that theorized their present movement is over Russia would like to restore the old Soviet Union and bring it back to its former glory. Yet, I don't know if that's what he's up to you, but certainly something that some people think that he would like to do. I think it's definitely clear when we start to look mail at the issues going on over there but has a desire to somehow reconstitute the parlor so beginning whether he plans to bring it all back again. I don't nobody is made no secret that he would like to reunite some of those wall countries and that would give him even greater base of power is his power grew throughout the region.

Ukraine probably the next logical step for him to do that because they Ukraine has made a lot of friends in the Western democracies of the world and so by having relationships with United States and NATO and other friendly countries to United States with Ukraine being so close to Russia's bore. It presents a problem for Russia because I mean really, we are there enemy and as we grain influence of Ukraine. It becomes a threat both militarily and politically to Russia so Mr. Putin you want Skip to abandon his western portion turned back to his friendship with Moscow. We have a problem in modern history because you may not know this but in 2014 Russia began a military seizure of an area of the court.

Ukraine called Crimea and Russia basically sees that huge amount of land in 2014 is probably the biggest landgrab by any country since World War II, and it violated many of the commitments that Russia made with respect to Ukraine's territorial integrity when the Soviet Union broke up in Ukraine became an independent nation.

So remember, they became independent in 1991 and then after that time here your leg or 2014 Russia goes in with their military NICs. This huge landmass called Crimea, which really create a lot of attention between them and between Ukrainians. It was a conflict in the area of Don boss and in more than 13,000 lives were lost during that time. So now you have a situation where there's a lot of bad blood and a lot of animosity so the Ukrainians began to look to organizations like the European Union and NATO is necessary for the security because they were afraid of something that happened then then Russia would invade them again, which is what were seeing the possibility of right mail so they began instead of moving closer Russia. They began to reach out to out-of-state allies, European Union and NATO to offer protection for them. In recent months. What's happening is the Russian military has been building up a military presence along the border of Ukraine, which is what is good in the world's attention right now, so are they doing that well something that Pres. Putin just wants to take over the Ukraine and and as I said began rebuilding the former Soviet Union with her all some other things that play as well. He's watching NATO which is a NATO you're friendly with Ukraine innately does not see NATO as a friend so he wants NATO to back away and stay away from Ukraine and also stay away from Russia because what NATO's been doing is your our military and our allies made this you military sector carry on military exercises all over the world sometimes is just like playing war and and practicing different scenarios and learning how to work with other nations that are allies and communicate outdoor military systems are out of work together.

Case was a war war or somebody we needed to unite against out to fight, but also sometimes we send in was called battle groups so it might be a group of ships that we would stand in different areas of the world. Just as a deterrent just to say hey Mr. you better pay attention where here and if you do something wrong to get your we could use your attention either. Further, by shoot missiles or deploying troops or whatever it may be so NATO is done that a little bit. That's that small battle groups the territory of Poland and the Baltic states and in this causing concern for Russia so there's a lot going on here, politically and military what's coming up in NATO and in Russia and in Europe and in the Ukraine.

It's all kind of come like a powder keg is about to explode, to see what happened because Moscow wants to increase her syrup sphere of influence in the post-Soviet base in the Ukraine.

At the same time as wanting to chart its own course consolidate his democracy and an inaccurate forms that will help them realize their full potential meager big country they got a big army.

They got a lot of people were poor so there's an opportunity for their economy to really grow. What's going to happen is that scared politically leadership in the Kremlin and an administration because the people of Russia don't have those freedom. They're not friends with the United States and other European powers and their economy is not gonna be able to grow on the scale that Ukraine could Ukraine's relationship begins to grow so the people Soviet Union the right Internet keeps answer began the people in Russia we were right there next to Ukraine to get very concerned about what's going on in their gonna say hey if Ukraine can have these kind of freedoms that they can elect democratically elected leaders in and have a president that's truly elected by the people and other representatives of the country and we want the same thing that would cause a great threat to the power Vladimir and his other L so my wife the coffee company with the Christian perspective, this is the answer that Christians and conservatives have been looking for a coffee company that gives back causes you care about.

The Texas Army. The battle began. Today, February 24, 1836 when 3000 Mexicans attacked 182 Texans within 13 days all defenders were killed including Davy Crockett and James Bowie. The Texas Declaration of Independence stated Gen. Antonio Lopez Santa Anna, who, having overturned the Constitution of his country now offers as the cruel alternative either abandon our homes or submit to the most intolerable of all, Tierney denies the right of worshiping the Almighty according to the things of our conscience. This is been an American minute with no federal transcript: argumentative 1888 USA welcome to talk a little bit today about the situation of the Ukraine a little while and Myra got great friend Mike Mears is a Christian political strategist to come on and talk about impact the Christians are having elected across the country today why Christians should be about the political process.

But first I wanted to take the first part of the show to really talk about what's happening in the Ukraine job. Give me a little bit about the geography of the area where it's located and the history of how Ukraine was formally part of the old Soviet Union and Hallandale Russia attacked Mary and she's a great amount of land in Crimea 2014 took over the diabolic portion of the country that same year, there were all kinds of clashes is not protected even continue to this day that back then, more than 13,000 lives were lost during that initial conflicts of the people Ukraine are scared of what Russia and prison might do. We also talked about the last segment how the present boot goals threatened by NATO because he feels NATO support for Ukraine is really like a redline for him. He does not want NATO giving more support to Ukraine because he sees out only as a military threat when an economic threat and a political threat for him in the rush is well and then Ukraine has a fear of a preplanned tutor topless government which could be part of an invasion plan so a lot is going on right now and because of that the Biden administration not not just the United States with other nations around the world have ever repaired different responses for you. If this happens were going to do this better or the other by demonstration. Respond to the crisis with really a lot of talk at first, but it spelled out the cause, it would happen to Russia if Russia did attract the Ukraine and one thing that the United States holds a heavy hammer is sanctions.

Economic sanctions against the Russia Russia really needs apply the come from the free world because we can produce things that are labeled as our economy, whether different so many other reasons. He also is present. Bonds also threat military assistance to Keio and specifically through the NATO allies North America treaty organization is a military presence in that part of the world and one thing present boot does not want his NATO strength growing inside Ukraine, particularly an area that so close to his own borders and there's also another thing is the threat of casualties you know if there is a war not only with the Ukrainians if there invaded lose a lot a lot Russian about was lawsuit because NATO probably wouldn't that getting involved. Another issue that is involved is a pipeline there is a whole pipeline that has been built under the Black Sea to provide oil to Germany, and other areas of Europe and Russia really wants to have control of that world, because if they can be the main supplier of oil to Germany and other nations throughout Europe to give them a lot of control over that region and not just that region really a lot of leverage and control over the world. That's why so many people were upset when the Biden administration started shutting down pipelines and oil exploration in the United States because we were energy independent and the end of the trumpet ministration now or not anymore. We certainly don't want to be relying on oil from Russia is also demanded security guarantees were Russia, the other the world's largest nuclear arsenal and they have the most powerful conventional military and all of your I can't just be brushed aside and you not only to have a lot of troops with their probably know we don't necessarily truly know the situation with China but they probably have the largest arsenal nuclear weapons are world and he made Mr. boot may not be afraid to use as weapons if necessary. So there's a lot at risk with this little skirmish that some people are paying attention to. There's also a lot going on because there is a history of tension between Pres. Biden and Chris at present boot up. Mr. Bryden said that Moscow was fabricated this pretext embodies neighbor is warn them of the Russian's incursion into Ukraine very possible we need to look back at the history of what happened when Pres. Biden was vice president under Pres. Obama. Remember I told you that Russia invaded Crimea area and had a huge landgrab and as a result of that, there was a change of leadership within the Ukraine and many felt like at least in the former Soviet Union area, particularly in Russia that Pres. Obama may have assisted her using United States CIA and other intelligence agencies to basically create a coup to put a leader in place right was more friendly to the United States and it was to Russia had a leadership change going on and then Pres. Obama when it did VP Biden be the person to oversee all the issues that were going thought in the Ukraine. At that time there was a your mind and revolution in 2013, and a protest ended in February 2014 when they leader yeah lead and went to Moscow in the US played a significant role in the change of leadership as I send it look like a two John Brennan who is the head of CA. At that time spec April went over and visited the area and basically claimed responsibility. What happened in the change of leadership in the crate is that we probably shouldn't of done with the Obama administration got involved over there and I did in a very public way. Two weeks after John Brennan goes is the head of CIA VP Joe Biden shows up there and begins to oversee the US policy within the Ukraine by destabilizing Ukraine.

Pres. Obama used Ukraine as an instrument to destabilize Russia, saying what it whether it was right or wrong, but I just want you to understand why Russia is upset now because Joe Biden was the very man involved in 2014 and basically what deep stabilized his own country and its political power in Russia a month after bite, then VP Joe Biden visits Ukraine Hunter Biden Joe Biden's son is named to the board of the Ukrainian energy company in many suspect that they hired Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden is a way to protect your company from whatever sanctions might come through Joe Biden and Obama.

So there's a lot going on now sure Russia the aggressor today there regressing into an area that warmer Soviet Union. We have to really look at it through the lens of the Cold War and that's what's happening with a lot of people in DC that are left over because you people get in the your elected officials change with a lot of staff people say many many years in Washington DC and a lot of people still writer what happened during the Cold War that was going all but it in the matter is complicated even more because if you remember Pres. Crump was accused by the Democrat party which is really tied to Ukraine and to Joe Biden at the Hunter Biden of all kinds of problems. Remember the phone call when Lieut. Carl Goodman was on the phone call and claimed it Pres. from which tried to pressure Ukraine to get involved in presidential election. Did you know that Lt. Col. Bimini was the key person or by testimony of that is from the Ukraine.

Did you know that what was happening his present troubles trying to find out the Biden's and Bob investigation and then Joe Biden later came out and bragged that he told the Ukrainian officials that if they didn't fire the prosecutor paying $50,000 a month excusing up the prosecutor. He was looking into the payment of $50,000 a month to his son Hunter that VP Biden would use his power to withhold $1 billion of money that was scheduled to go to the Ukraine.

All because he was trying to protect his son in the $50,000 a month that his son was getting with his contract with that company. Pres. Biden admitted that publicly, and is been played on television in 2008 date so some could argue what's going on right now in the Ukraine is all a consequence of Joe Biden's involvement back in 2014. So there's so much going on here K-1 you got Pres. Putin in Russia might want to be reassembling the former Soviet Union. You Putin who is threatened by a President of the United States was directly involved, possibly in a coup in a change of leadership in the Ukraine in 2014 and his family may have even received huge financial gain to the policies of Joe Biden and Pres. Barack Obama at the time and you have a Pres. Putin, who does not want NATO increasing and their strength in the area of the Ukraine will a lot is going on. There's political turmoil there's economic turmoil and there's still a possibility of military conflict quickly.

How does this affect our economy will one thing. All prices have already gone up their probably not go up or in some predicted that the oil prices will way exceed nearly hundred dollars a barrel both sides of the conflict fear that there could be actual lives lost, because there will be a possible war between Russia and Ukraine and NATO may have to get involved.

Remember, Russia is one of the world's top natural producers of oil and natural gas, and they supply nearly 1/3 of the gas all of your depending what happened. This can have a huge effect on the European economy. I want to tell you that will eventually have a huge effect on our economy here in the United States as well.

Her melting right now that the Russian Pres. Vladimir wet countries like affect works put pressure on Europe and he could also possibly invade the Ukraine.

Now many doubt that this can happen. But who knows you got over 100,000 troops on the border right now and a lot of this is going to depend on the comments and reactions of the Biden administration right here in the United States. So why should we care as Christians well we should care. Anytime there's a threat of loss of life. We have many missionaries and Christians in the Ukraine, who are leaving right now are United States government has asked all All-Americans to leave the Ukraine but also a lot of Christians are playing. I know missionaries over there who wanting a blink of our lives because the Soviet Union is the former Soviet Union policies are still a place in Russia are a great threat to Christianity there atheistic in their tendencies and they don't allow the free expression of religion and being able to worship our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

And we need a break. Praying for missionaries we needed. Also hear about the effects of all price around the world and in our own nation and it will affect us here. We need to care about the lives of those who could actually dine this conflict, we need to especially care about American logic to be lost if our military go to Lanark we go with your NATO or the nation goes in United States military will play a crucial role in what happened over there and many of our own young men and women and people other countries realized we lost. We also need to be concerned about the stability of NATO in the region because the great danger what you have both politically and economically and to the stability of the entire world*rush to hurry. Maybe we need to do all show some other time. When I wanted to give you just to feel and understand the history of so much is going on behind the scenes what's happening of the Ukraine today directed take a quick break we come back. Can't wait to introduce you to my dear friend Mike Mears is a political strategist just came off the heels of a great victory ever Christian life that America has a strong Christian heritage.

As you know, folks, they fearlessly show the citizens for America foundation, we work to educate and train Christians to develop a biblical worldview and then encourage them to take the biblical worldview into the arena of public policy and politics, and I noticed some of you that's a dirty word but it's important.

Many people that think Christians can't be faithful to the word of God to be in politics.

But I want tell you folks that simply not true in our guest today has walk the corridors of politics and power all of his adult life and he is a man firmly committed to Jesus Christ, you can be committed to Jesus and be involved in public policy and politics. Mike Mears really fascinating guy really him tells more about about Mike Mears and served in various capacities with a lot of last national organization that it realized some of the great organizations he had worked for Chaucer looking to have them on the show.

He was one of the first he was the first ever director of strategic partnerships at the Republican national committee and then when I met him and he was serving as a role as a national faith engagement director at the Republican national committee.

More recently a fee if those are your following that the Virginia ratio. We talked about that race a lot on the show. Here the governor's race in Virginia in 2021, he served his face advisor to young can for governor of Virginia and today Mike Mears is the president of Mordechai strategies, which is a political consulting firm. So, Mike Mears, welcome to the Christian perspective that you, having been at the RNC will last eight years I a lot of media head because the red ball and all that good stuff.

Maybe you can't find my going along well and now is your know that your guy likes work by the scenes, but as you advertise and push your your your new company.

Mordechai strategies you can have to bite the bullet here and do more of this. So Mike people might not know you by seeing you know the name but your work is been working behind-the-scenes for many many years. Share with our listeners, who you are, where you're from and your background. That kind of thing. I'm a follower. Right now my personal Savior that team ministry at my high school I did another tradition that actually headed toward being professional clergy in that tradition and the tires that read my Bible had a lot of question Christians next door will happily answer the questions that others were not at a 17 Dr Pepper which I would not allowed to have those around you were you know that I ran yeah okay but my faith in Christ and there great church in California and the fear award and always felt God had something and remain in fairly traditional pastor without coming-of-age 8090 way, members of Congress and representative who are believers Christian who are getting elected and no, I pray God to me by my Bible study upon their elected official rate, but I was concerned about staff well that discipleship route.

I got all politics and I myself. 97 and I work at one of the guy and I ran past Beverly and Kim LaHaye worked for many years I decided to go over capital action action kind of guy.

Finally people or directors are familiar with that final MP3 I like your church like that ministry and finally people are little bit more problem there is a solution possibly the ultimate solution we do have a role, and global in 2013 will get back to 12 we had last or the party had lost their second presidential rate and should be rallying the high party and people pay specially just really angry and right click sure what to do about it.

That's where the strategic partnership directorship came and thought well because frankly I worker people you encounter me with the party and and the and the RP member and reverberated even the relationship have been started, Tony Parker and think pain and Ken Blackwell professional crime now call within the party.

I probably allow your listeners are like me can one party or another, hard community that now think I work for the party for eight years but I still say you actually know I could very well on however what Americans think about it like and and you jump in with questions because our listeners might not know what you mean when you say platform of folks the Democrat party and the Republican Party both have what's called a platform which is basically an Mike Mike Rigby a bit. Basically a statement of beliefs and and the average person. It only takes about 15 minutes to read the average person is probably even people that are involved in politics have never read the full platform of the parties. So you I know the Christian role sometimes are people are critical.

Will you are you always pushing Chris, the Republican Party will read the platforms you write you and you work for family research Council Mike in 2016, is as president, Trump was taking office are really at the convention were he became president taught Tony Perkins who runs a family research Council was very very involved a lot of others to in writing, the platform which is basically the statement of what we believe, for the Republican Party and folks it was and still is today the most conservative and most pro-Christian pro-God platform in the history of the Republican Party. And if you look would you agree that my privilege I had to be on that side by platform in 2015 though I didn't know that.

And I remember still remember the late Flatley founder Eagle for your masters. I know a thing about the equal rights amendment. She thought that many very strong traditional woman and me, grab me by my high 2012 platform conservative don't you mess it up. I laugh and after I bullet up is actually more concerned about the case with Pres. drop being there and then I would change for the listeners of Phyllis Schlafly and I was with her a few weeks before she she was a frail old woman, but boy I want to tell you when you sense that you see could put you in your place in a hurry. She was a fireball and did not back down. She was a woman of courage in my one square and live yet man how how high on the platform you baffle part. Howells motor activity or about someone I'm on this side. I think that both platform and probably a little too long. Actually like people to read lately and it is much too long. However, when you check talking like that and I stationed in 2020 pandemic that might look a little different. The one great thing about platform and this is for your listeners getting well that's something you can that you write yet and yet he kinda leave it altogether by groups of people from all over the country and in the territory who I left.

There party process and they are selected to crap. The latest version of in a world you points of voice and after a financial problem.

The United States of America has a strong Christian heritage is truly important role in God and the Bible is indicated. American foundation meeting with bargaining having much of America's government and the men kind of Republic acknowledge the creator about the creation of the mounting is welcome. Thank you so much for being with us today.

Here you're a believer in the Lord your people to help reform the director the time when I think about the church being so closely aligned with one party over another time with my reasoning in my youth that that had three opportunity to speak of faith to Christian and they kind of ignore a more progressive churches around the country where Southern Baptist no longer even chuckles. And so they had gone away. You know I don't want I want people becoming Republicans first Christian second time the competition by having folks hard member grounded in God's word. Remember all I will tell you that you and your county park that your first step probably go online and check it out and you know you know you can talk to tell you, you will be a rash fragrant that person there all the people like people are not going this nation There to be involved in two or three nights a week when you like that you find somebody who's probably very open-minded and there expecting yeah the public. Shop maybe simple as holding a clipboard at the next meeting. Maybe you have a yellow market thing you can do and you see that you are looking.

I think sometimes we all got your community, why following my fellow believers, to bring Christ with you wherever you you are what ever you got even when you work with everybody knows that I can jump in with you Mike that is so important. I worked on a national level in the Pat Robertson campaign in 1988 and and and Christians would never been involved before did what you said and went into these County parties, but they didn't do it in a godly fashion. Many cases they were nasty about it and it left a very bad taste in the mouth of people who would been working the party for years and it really took years for Christian candidates to dig out of that hole.

Because people claim to be Christians and they did not conduct themselves in a Christian manner it in these meetings didn't really hurt so you right.

I didn't mean to interrupt you but you're bringing you representing Jesus and you need to remember that book on the subject that I like her, looking me be on one of godly anger and what it look like and how do you have to be manifested in mental disability. In general, how house for me present herself on my fellow leaders were family started only time Larry campaign and the church in time to talk to me complain about something and years not going to question and doubt there and I think I think it is not on leaders that when we share public square. We need to continually bring in a something that me and God's gracious floor and this is great advice will before we run out of time.

I want to talk a little bit about what you're doing now so you you started a new consulting business is that correct that I strategy and my work with the RFP and all the other groups that work for you know what I wasn't sure exactly where to go with it. When you have you did for the job and out of the gate. You know I will. If you don't follow very closely the man young man and I am just well campaign and I guess you reaping the benefit of campaign but he had a very Wallace and if the claims campaign plan for the candidate's leader and so I came on to help bolster their engagement effort that you know everybody and I don't know everybody, I honestly feel like if I pick up the phone is probably uniting that and model around the country. All of the country that so-called line young. Magic hardware, and when it comes to taking part. You and so I'm not to do some work if you will, and I and you what motors are like what you think when you found genie in a bottle when he took up the battle Loudoun County parent very outraged at what was happening in the public school for your listeners felt by a young man who was dressed up as a woman who went into the bathroom leaving character, usually incorrectly.
