GUEST: ALEX NEWMAN, Journalist and CEO, Liberty Sentinel Media

If you sense that a major transformation is taking place in our nation—and around the world—you are correct. The final book of the Bible, Revelation, tells us what the world will be like in the future prior to Christ’s return—a globalized world led by an authoritarian leader who exerts strict control over peoples and societies, all in opposition to God.

So how do we get from here to there? After all, the world is currently comprised of nation states with diversified leadership. In fact, our own nation, the most powerful, affluent, autonomous, Christian-influenced nation in history, is the biggest impediment to a globalized system.

But that is changing before our eyes. Everything our nation has been known for—military might, financial strength, legal justice, social cohesion, Christian values—is being undermined and remade. Those without a Biblical worldview are cheering this on because they believe (correctly) that America must decrease for globalism to increase.

The Bible’s prophecies about the future will be fulfilled just as ones made about the past were fulfilled. There is no thwarting God’s plan. In fact, the amazing thing is how God uses the sinful schemes of man to accomplish His plans. Christians don’t need to be anxious about our transformative time but rather should prepare and shine.

Alex Newman, award-winning journalist and CEO of Liberty Sentinel Media, joins us this weekend and next to discuss how seven pillars upholding our society—national defense, energy, financial, political, legal, social, and spiritual—are purposely being crumbled in order to achieve a “Great Reset”.

Be informed so you can prepare for what’s ahead!

We are offering a DVD of Alex Newman’s 2022 presentation on “The Great Reset” including slides and video documenting the planned “Reset” accompany Alex’s presentation. 82 mins. Retail is $10 +shipping.

If you sense that a major transformation is taking place in our nation, and around the world for that matter, you are correct. The final book of the Bible, Revelation, tells us what the world will be like in the future prior to Christ's return, a globalized world led by an authoritarian leader called the Antichrist who exerts strict control over peoples and societies, all in opposition to God.

So how do we get from here, where we are now, to there? After all, the world is currently comprised of nation-states with diversified leadership. In fact, our own nation, the most powerful, affluent, autonomous, Christian-influenced nation in history, is the biggest impediment to a globalized system. But that is changing right before our eyes.

Everything our nation has been known for—military might, financial strength, legal justice, social cohesion, Christian values—is being undermined and remade. Those without a biblical worldview are cheering us on, because they believe—correctly, I might add—that America must decrease for globalism to increase. Make no mistake, the Bible's prophecies about the future will be fulfilled just as prophecies made about the past were fulfilled. There is no thwarting God's plan.

In fact, the amazing thing is how God uses the sinful schemes of man to accomplish His plans. Christians don't need to be anxious about our transformative time, but rather should prepare and shine. Alex Newman, award-winning journalist and CEO of Liberty Sentinel Media, joins us today and next week to discuss how seven pillars upholding our society are purposely being crumbled in order to achieve a so-called great reset. So as we listen to the conversation with Alex this week and next, let's be informed so we can prepare for what's ahead. We're going to be offering a presentation that Alex did last year in DVD form on the great reset for a donation of any amount to the Christian Real View. We'll tell you how you can get that throughout the program today.

But first, Alex, it's so good to have you back on the Christian Real View radio program. I jotted down seven general categories, or I guess you could call them pillars, upon which a good, functioning, strong society is grounded. These pillars that I'm going to list here aren't necessarily in any particular order because they're all interconnected and interdependent on one another.

The first one I wrote was national defense—that has to do with military, immigration, protecting a nation's borders from immigration, illegal immigration, and from foreign enemies, that kind of thing. The second category is energy, whether it's food and water and fuel that energizes a society. Number three is financial.

How is a country's spending, debt, currency, taxation, inflation, trade, what's the marketplace like? Number four is political. Who is your leadership? Number five, a category or pillar, is legal.

Is there justice? Is there lawfulness in a society, otherwise you have a breakdown of society? Number six, what is the social fabric, the social cohesion of a society, with family and marriage and education, healthcare, other things like that, relations between people? Number seven, pillar is spiritual. What are the beliefs of a nation? What's the health of the church? So I'm just going to go through, Alex, and ask you just a question or two about each of those pillars because you focus in your work on a lot of these different elements.

You have a very broad base of focus, I guess you could say, with the things you write about in your various writings and podcasts and so forth. Let's start out with national defense. The question is, can we defend our nation from foreign armies, illegal immigration, detrimental things coming into our country like deadly drugs and so forth? I mean, if you can't defend yourself, you don't have a nation anymore if you can be easily taken over. It appears to me, Alex, that this country now does not have the will or the wisdom to win wars or to stay out of wars.

You look at what happened in Iraq and Afghanistan, what's going on in Ukraine right now, the mentality in Ukraine of whatever it takes, this proxy war we have with Russia and Ukraine, which depletes our money, our munitions. I looked just recently online, I'm sure you've seen this, there was a US Army recruitment ad on Twitter. And of course, you can't base too much on the comments after a given post, but literally almost every single comment was something to the effect that I am a third generation military person. I would never have my son or daughter go into the military now the way they are trying to transgenderize, I guess you could say, the armed forces, the radical social nature, the vaccine mandates, everything that's going on with the military.

Every comment was kind of related to something like that. And when I saw that, I thought to myself, wow, what if we were to have a war? Could the US actually conduct a war to defend our nation with so many people being so negative about the military now? But let's start out with the question about Ukraine, Alex. What is the bigger story of the US involvement going on in Ukraine right now? I think everyone's for Ukraine being able to defend itself from Russia taking over the country. But what is really going on there?

Well, thank you, David, and a lot to unpack right there. But I would say the greater agenda that's taking place in Ukraine, and I think there are multiple ways to look at this to dissect it, but I think the overarching agenda is really conflict for the sake of conflict, war for the sake of war, the establishment, the insiders, the deep state, whatever you want to call this maniacal group of totalitarians who have determined that they are superior to us, that they want to rule over us. They have understood for many, many generations that war is the fastest way to undermine national sovereignty, individual liberty.

It's the fastest way to expand the reach, the scope, the power of the state, of government. So I think what we're watching in Ukraine is actually part of a complex geopolitical process that was set into motion probably starting decades ago, but they really started talking about it openly about a decade ago, and that is the shift away from what they – and by they, I mean kind of the deep state individuals and organizations that are involved in this transition from a world of sovereign or relatively sovereign nation states to a kind of a one-world system. They've been talking about this shift from a unipolar world order, meaning a world where the United States was the world's hegemonic, unchallengeable superpower, right? Even just a few decades ago, all of the world's militaries combined would have really struggled to go up against the US military. So this transition from a unipolar world order to what they describe as a multipolar world order where you have a number of power centers, so Moscow, Beijing, maybe South Africa, Brazil, et cetera, that transition is happening now and what's happening in Ukraine is one of the catalysts. It's one of the mechanisms being used to accomplish this. So it very much involves the destruction of the US military.

You alluded to several key points there. I've spoken with generals. I've spoken with admirals.

On the record, I mean these aren't secret conversations who have told me that the Biden administration is actually waging war on our own military. So you look, they left almost $100 billion worth of military equipment in Afghanistan. A lot of that ended up in Russian hands. A lot of that ended up in Chinese hands. A lot of that ended up in Taliban hands and the hands of other Islamic extremists.

Now we're sending what's left over to Ukraine. Now traditionally, what made the US military superior to our potential adversaries in particular communist China and Russia was our technology. We no longer have that advantage through systematic and I would say treasonous activities by individuals at the highest levels of our government.

Bill Clinton actually got caught doing this. This was the China gate scandal. They have sent and I believe deliberately our most advanced military technology to our potential adversaries, especially communist China which of course is very happy to share it with the North Koreans, the Russians, et cetera. So I think what we're seeing here and I know this is going to touch on some of the other questions that you have but what we're seeing here is the controlled demolition of the United States as the world's superpower and that involves the destruction of our military. It's not just what's happening in Ukraine, the transgenderization, the wokeness, the dividing of our troops by skin tone, the teaching that America is actually a racist, evil, horrible country that really should be dismantled. All of this is part of the war on our military.

Some of our best people were chased out of the military because they wouldn't take these controversial injections. So this is a systematic process that they hope is going to end in the utter decimation of the American military along with our economy, along with our businesses, along with our technological edge, along with our energy infrastructure. So all of this is happening together and I submit to you that this is actually part of a diabolical plan. The people who think that they are engineering this, the Bible talks about powers and principalities that Satan is the god of this world, 1 John chapter 5 tells us that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one. I think what we're watching here is satanic machinations and the United States is a country that was founded at least nominally on biblical principles.

The idea that we are created in God's image and therefore we have certain dignity, that God gave us the right to life, that God gave us the right to property and the government exists to protect these rights, all of that has to be wiped out of the way to bring in this new world order system that they're talking about. I think what's happening in Ukraine needs to be understood in that context. One individual who wrote a report on this for the US State Department, this was back in the early 1960s, Lincoln Bloomfield, the report kind of gives the goal away in the title. It was called A World Effectively Controlled by the United Nations and of course that was the goal.

How do we get to a world effectively controlled by the United Nations and his conclusions were that the fastest way to do that is to use war, the threat of war and crises. So Ukraine helps bring about all those things, right? The war in Ukraine has helped facilitate the energy crisis, the food crisis and of course it has the potential to turn into a global conflagration potentially involving nuclear weapons and we saw how this worked after World War II. In the aftermath of World War II, we saw the birth of the United Nations.

We saw the birth of the International Monetary Fund, of the World Bank, of the precursor to the European Union, the European Coal and Steel Community. We could talk on this for many hours but I think the critical thing to understand is that this is part of something much bigger than just Ukrainian borders, Ukrainian territory, Ukrainian sovereignty. This is part of a much larger global agenda and Ukraine is just a piece on the chessboard. What you just described there, it sounds explosive but it makes perfect sense to me knowing where the end of scripture tells us it's going to end in this globalized world with the global leader and so forth.

If they're moving toward that. I think the one hard thing to understand though is there are many Americans involved in this. You talked about Bill Clinton and other presidents and those on the left. It's hard to understand how Americans would want to see their own country be decimated or diminished and not be the global power in the world. You think that would be bad for them if America wasn't the global power that it has been.

What's the reasoning behind that? Well, they have no loyalty to the United States. In fact, I think many of these people at the highest levels absolutely despise the United States, partly because it has been a historically Christian nation.

It has taken the gospel to every corner of this planet like no other nation in all of human history. As I mentioned earlier, it's founded on these biblical principles and there's a lot of fake history today that it's all Masonic or it's all enlightenment principles. Really a lot of the principles that are at the core of our republic, these came directly out of scripture and our founding fathers made that crystal clear in their writings. If you take for example the words in our Declaration of Independence that everybody should know, unfortunately a lot of young people today don't know them, but they said we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they're endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are the right to life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness. Thomas Jefferson didn't actually invent that language. That language was first articulated by a group of Presbyterians in North Carolina. It was later enshrined in the very first document that ever circulated through the committees of correspondence in a piece written by Samuel Adams called On the Rights of Christians and he explained that if you want to understand the rights of Americans as Christians, you need to go to the ultimate law giver, that is of course Jesus Christ, you need to go to the New Testament and all of these principles that were at the core of our republic actually are discerned straight from scripture.

So let me give you some clear examples. When God says thou shalt not murder, the corollary to that, the implication of that is that God gave you a right to life and that nobody has a right to take that from you other than God himself or if you forfeit that through, for example, violating somebody else's right to life. The same is true with the right to property. God is the one who said, thou shalt not steal. So there's a transcendent divine reason why you have a right to property.

It's not just because some old dead white guys as the left likes to refer to our founding fathers thought this up to preserve white supremacy, this total hoax. They got this idea from the Bible. Where would you get the idea that God gave you property?

Well, for one, God's laws are written in our hearts. For two, this is clearly articulated in the scriptures and so these ideas that come from the Bible are fundamentally incompatible with the world order that unfortunately many of the most influential, most powerful Americans want to see emerge as rapidly as possible. You look at people like Bill Gates, you look at people like George Soros, you look at people like David Rockefeller, even the Bushes, the Clintons. These are not people who have any attachment to the United States at all. In fact, they hate the United States. They hate the principles that it's founded on and as Barack Hussein Obama put it as president, they want to fundamentally transform our nation. In a superficial way, it looks like they might lose power but when you recognize that their objective is to actually destroy the shackles on their power that the US Constitution, that our American traditions, that our biblical principles impose on them, then it suddenly starts to make sense.

They don't see this as weakening their power. They see this as a mechanism for achieving drastically more power far beyond anything that God would approve of in terms of government. God explains that the purpose of government is to punish evil. That's why you have to protect the right to life or punish murder.

That's why you have to protect the right to property or punish thievery. These biblical principles put very strong restraints on our would-be rulers. They want to throw off these shackles and move toward a world where there are no limits on their power, where they can force you to participate in abortions, where they can force you to bend the knee, to bow down and worship. And that's what they're trying to accomplish here. They have no attachment to the United States or the Constitution that they swore to uphold. Your answer there is very important to understand because I think a lot of Christians who love this country, love the history of this nation, know it's not a perfect country, it's hard to get through your mind if you're a patriotic American how there can be people who are fellow Americans who can be so working to undermine their own country.

That's exactly what you explained right there. Alex Newman is our guest today here on the Christian Real View radio program. He's a journalist.

Our guest today is Alex Newman, a journalist and CEO of Liberty Sentinel Media. is his website. Our topic is how God uses man's schemes to accomplish his plans. We went over the first pillar that a society is grounded upon in the first segment, national defense. Alex, let's move on to the second pillar, very important pillar for a society is just energy. You have to have food, you have to have water, you have to have fuel to feed and energize people and to run industry and so forth.

Otherwise, you don't have anything. The world, the universe runs on energy. There is an all-out war, as you're very familiar, Alex, against carbon emission, fossil fuel powered engines, even gas stoves are trying to ban in your house, trying to force electric cars on us. They want us to live in urban areas, taking electric trains here and there. They're looking for substitutes to meat because they believe that farm animals contribute to human-caused global warming, that cows and pigs and so forth are ruining the environment.

They're off-gassing, you could say. We've seen a lot of destruction of the food supply in our country through so-called accidents like chicken farms and so forth, which are very mysterious. Bill Gates, a person you just mentioned, is now the largest owner of farmland in this country. I just received a notice from the U.S. Department of Agriculture the other day by email. I just want to read you just two short paragraphs from when they were celebrating National Agriculture Day. They said, the USDA is growing a climate for success for all people involved in farming, ranching, and private forest land management.

Now listen to this. We are working to create an equitable and climate-smart food and agricultural economy built to support both rural and urban communities and empower – this one is to Minnesota – Minnesota producers, agricultural producers. At the national level, the Inflation Reduction Act – remember that, that President Biden did – just injected trillions of dollars to so-called reduce inflation – of course it did the opposite – represents the single largest investment in climate and clean energy solutions in American history. Last paragraph. The USDA can only succeed in its mission to help American agriculture thrive if it ensures that the Americans who need its services most receive them.

Equity is not an add-on or extra. It is central to the USDA's mission. So climate change and equity are central to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. That's what they want to do.

You could probably go a lot of different directions from this particular category. The one question I'll ask though is I think Christians who naturally want to be good stewards of the environment, who naturally are fair-minded – we want everyone treated equally – why should Christians reject the climate change and the equity initiatives that are being pushed in our society right now through this energy pillar? The simplest reason, David, is that they are based on lies and they are anti-biblical. They contradict the clear teaching of scripture. So let's start with climate change.

This is an issue that I followed very, very closely. It is a weapon being used by these same predators that we mentioned in the previous segment to try to undermine all of the critical systems that make life possible, that make prosperity possible. You mentioned the food systems, the energy systems and the water systems. Without any of these three systems, life as we know it breaks down.

Massive amounts of death emerge. Civilization cannot be sustained without those three systems and yet climate change is the perfect weapon. I should say climate change alarmism is the perfect weapon to undermine each of those. Now it's very easy to prove that the people calling the shots here, the people driving this crazy train do not actually believe their own lies and I've proved it a number of different ways that don't require any science. I've also gone around the world, interviewed a lot of the world's leading scientists just a couple of weeks ago. I was at a climate summit. I interviewed some of the world's top scientists on this issue. Dr. William Happer, physics professor from Princeton University, served as Donald Trump's climate advisor. Dr. Richard Lindzen, meteorology professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Dr. Willie Soon, astrophysicist at Harvard University. Just as a sample of the leading experts who I've spoken to on this who've said this is a hoax.

It's about tyranny. It has nothing to do with science. CO2 is good for the planet and so why would they want to promote this hoax? Well the idea that carbon dioxide is actually pollution, again from a scientific perspective is totally ridiculous. It's not supported by the evidence. The hypothesis has been debunked over and over and over again. In fact we've had huge amounts of CO2 released over the last eight years and yet the government's own data shows not one tiny bit of warming at all over the last eight years. Therefore their hypothesis is clearly mistaken. So why are they pushing this?

Well I think the key thing to understand is it's about control, it's about power. They want to use this to undermine our energy grid and ultimately our food systems but not all energy grids and food systems and this is one of the ways that you can prove that the ringleaders of this don't believe it themselves. Look at communist China. So I was in Paris at the UN climate summit when they negotiated the Paris agreement and I remember very clearly Barack Hussein Obama announced that the United States would be slashing its emissions of carbon dioxide which by the way is the gas you exhale, human emissions of CO2 make up a fraction of a fraction of 1% of all the greenhouse gases naturally in the atmosphere. So Barack Obama says we're going to slash ours by about 30%, by about one-third within the next – at that time it would have been 15 years or less, 10 years. So that of course would have devastating implications for our economy and he said so even when he was running for president.

He said under my plan, energy prices are going to necessarily skyrocket is the exact phrase that he used. Well what did the communist Chinese say? By the way, at that time the communist Chinese already released about two times as much CO2 as the United States. Today, they release about three times as much CO2 as Americans, twice as much as the entire western world combined. They're building carbon dioxide spewing power plants, coal-fired power plants faster than we can count them. They've already got about half of the world's capacity.

They're bringing hundreds of new ones online as we speak. So what is happening is as energy prices skyrocket in the United States because we're shutting down our energy infrastructure, we're shutting down energy exploration, all of that is being shipped over to China and all of the manufacturing and all of the industry that that supported is being shipped over to China. Now at the top, if these people truly believed that CO2 was dangerous, they would be horrified about this, right? Every unit of economic production that takes place in communist China is going to result in drastically more CO2 in the atmosphere than that same unit of economic production would release if it were done in the United States or in Canada or in Japan or in Western Europe, Germany, France, Sweden, pick your country. So obviously, this is not about CO2. This is not about stopping alleged man-made climate change. The agenda is much different. Now there's also a religious component to this and this came out very clearly.

I was just at the UN climate summit in Egypt a couple of months ago. This was the COP 27 and I actually thought the biggest story was the religious story. My cover story that I ended up writing in the New American Magazine was a three-part package but it was called the UN's New World Religion because they brought in all of these so-called religious leaders from around the world, various pagans, even some alleged evangelical Christians, Catholic leaders, Orthodox, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus. They flew in this pagan ancestor spirit worshiper from the Amazon as a supposed representative of indigenous spirituality in the Amazon rainforest in South America and they all agreed that we really need a new system of ethics, a new system of morality which is actually what the UN put in a report that was released right before the UN COP 27 took place. What they said in the report was that the system of ethics and morality that evolved with mankind over the last few thousand years and they're referring of course to the Ten Commandments biblical morality was no longer adequate for the task of protecting Mother Earth. So their claim was that we need a new system of morality and they actually released – they climbed up to the top of what they say is Mount Sinai.

I went up the very next day. They wouldn't let me go the same day and they did this bizarre ceremony. They repented of their climate sins. Again, these are pagans, demon worshippers along with self-proclaimed Christians and everything else that you can think of and they unveiled this new Ten Commandments after their climate repentance ceremony that is obviously pagan, that is obviously pantheistic, that treats the protection of Mother Earth and the love for Mother Earth as a goal in and of itself and totally throws out the old Ten Commandments and actually through divine providence I was able to interview four of the ringleaders of this whole thing at the UN conference and we got the video.

We put it out. People can watch it and what they told me was that they are actually now working on what they described as the third covenant, not the old covenant, not the new covenant ushered in by Jesus Christ but a third covenant that they say is going to help us protect Mother Earth and one of them, the CEO of the peace department, one of the organizers of this told me that they were going to use this to bring in heaven on earth. They're going to build heaven on earth.

In fact, they're doing quite the opposite. They're building hell on earth and equity without getting too deep into the weeds is just another term for communism so all of this is anti-biblical. It is based on demonstrable, provable lies and it is being used to undermine the very systems that sustain us, the agricultural systems that put food on our table, the energy systems that enable us to turn on the lights, power our factories, power our transportation, move agricultural products from the rural areas into the cities so that these woke people in New York City and Los Angeles can get fresh fruits and vegetables and they're not thinking clearly. A lot of these people who have been duped into supporting this, some of them I think for religious reasons, others because they've just completely suppressed the innate knowledge of God that they have as Romans 1 explains, they've just been handed over to a reprobate mind.

It's not a reality if it bit them in the face and so we're dealing with a catastrophic situation here where a big percentage of not just the American population but the global population has bought into these lies that if taken to their logical conclusion will literally end civilization, individual liberty and all of the systems that sustain our lives. It's hard to overstate the danger of that. Harold Pollack There's a quick follow-up on this before we go to the next pillar. Alex Newman with us today is, so what do you recommend people do with the food and water supply and energy and so forth that's being intentionally transformed?

Should we be having backup ways to grow food or should we just continue to rely on the system? What's your advice there? Harold Pollack The Proverbs tells us that the wise man sees danger coming and takes steps to protect himself.

The fool does not. As Christians who, you know, we want to try to be as wise as possible with God's help, we ought to be looking at this danger on the horizon and we ought to be taking prudent, sensible preparations, not out of any sense of fear, not out of any sense of paranoia but out of a sense of duty. A lot of us have families that depend on us. The Bible teaches that if you don't take care of your family, you're worse than an infidel. Are you prepared to take care of your family if the lights go out for a while? Are you prepared to take care of your family if we end up with food shortages? And I think these are both very real possibilities that Christians ought to be considering. It's also a phenomenal ministry opportunity. If things get worse and I think the last three years during COVID showed us how rapidly the pandemic can happen, you know, a couple of messages on TV and people are beating each other over the head over a roll of toilet paper at Sam's Club, you know, things can change really rapidly and really dramatically. If you've got a little bit of extra food, if you've got a little bit of extra gear that can help people deal with that, that gives you a wonderful opportunity to share with your neighbors, which we are, of course, commanded to do as part of loving our neighbors and also to share the gospel with them. You know, they're a lot more inclined to listen, I think, when you can do something for them.

I think it's incumbent upon us to take these things into consideration. And that doesn't mean, you know, you have to grow your own food or anything like that. I don't think it's a bad idea to have some chickens and maybe have a couple of cows. I've got some cows.

You know, we've had chickens before or some of our neighbors do, but also get to know local producers in your area, go to the farmers market and meet the people who grow fruits and vegetables locally, meet the people who have cows and chickens and can get you milk and bacon. You know, these are just sensible things to do. There's no reason why we shouldn't be doing them.

And even if everything ends up totally fine and all right, you're still in a very good situation because you're eating healthy food from one of your neighbors. That is great advice all around, something we all need to consider with where our country in the world is heading. Alex Newman is our guest today here on The Christian Real View. Just a reminder, we are offering a presentation he made about the great reset, which applies very much to what we're discussing this week and next here on the program.

We have much more coming up after this break. You are listening to The Christian Real View. I'm David Wheaton. What is The Christian Real View radio program really about? Fundamentally, it's about impacting people, families, churches with the life and eternity changing truth of God's Word. We know the gospel of Jesus Christ is the only message that saves us from God's wrath, by God's grace, for God's glory.

We know the Bible is the inspired Word of God, providing the only way to think and live to the glory of God. We are a nonprofit listener-supported ministry. If you would like to help us impact listeners with the biblical worldview and the gospel, consider becoming a Christian worldview partner who regularly give a specified amount to the ministry. As a thank you, Christian worldview partners automatically receive many of the resources featured on the program throughout the year. To become a Christian worldview partner, call us toll-free 1-888-646-2233 or visit You pray for revival as if it must come, but you go on working as if it will not come.

We must carry on witnessing for Christ, living a holy life, seeking to know Christ better, following His ways, following His path, making unity and peace among God's people wherever we can, supporting the preaching of the Word by our prayers and our encouragement, and being, quite frankly, godly Christians. That was from the film Revival, the Work of God, which surveys some of the great revivals of the past 500 years. This two-hour, two-disc DVD documentary is our new featured resource.

Normal retail is $40 plus shipping, and for a limited time, you can order the film for a donation of any amount to the Christian worldview.

Our topic today is how God uses man's schemes to accomplish His plans. Alex Newman of Liberty Sentinel Media is our guest. And Alex, let's go from the first two pillars that a society rests upon, national defense and energy.

You've talked about those two, Alex. Let's go to number three, which is financial. If a country doesn't have its monetary policy, its financial house and order, if it goes into great debt, there's high inflation, everything really can't be done.

The marketplace doesn't work very well. We just recently saw the failing of the second largest bank in history recently failed, Silicon Valley Bank, also Signature Bank failed. And then just recently in Europe, Credit Suisse was about to fail and was bought out by UBS, another Swiss bank, and they're putting the ramifications for that on the people of Switzerland through taxation. In our country, Alex, inflation has gone way up.

Prices of everything are so much higher. We are in massive trillions of dollars worth of debt. I can't remember where I read this, but recently China is forcing or mandating that their Chinese yuan, their currency is going to be used to do purchases in the marketplace with Russia, the Middle East and Africa and so forth, away from the U.S. dollar.

And one more development is what's called a CBDC, a central bank digital currency, moving from a society where you can pay with cash to going to a society where everything is done digitally, there's no cash transactions, therefore everything can be tracked and controlled. On this third category, this third pillar in the financial pillar, tell us why these banks are all of a sudden failing and what this whole financial situation in the world portends going forward. Yeah, I mean, the proximate cause of the recent bank failures is that they're sitting on large numbers of U.S. Treasury bonds with long term maturity. And of course, they're sitting on massive unrealized losses because as the Federal Reserve has been hiking interest rates, that, of course, decimates the price of a bond, at least at the time that it's happening. And so these banks were sitting on hundreds of billions of dollars worth of unrealized losses. And as depositors started to withdraw their money, they were having to actually sell those bonds and then those losses then became realized and so there wasn't enough money to pay back. But the much more systemic reason behind all of this is that we operate now in a monetary system that is, as far as I'm concerned, a giant criminal operation.

It is a scam. It is designed to loot the poor to enrich the rich. And the Bible has a lot to say about this.

Leviticus and Deuteronomy both talk about honest and accurate weights and measures. You're not supposed to be deceiving people through funny monetary gimmicks. And when you get through the fancy terminology that the Federal Reserve and the Ph.D. economists use to deceive you and to confuse you, what's happening here is actually very simple. The monetary system is based on fraud. The Federal Reserve, which is a privately owned cartel of banks that got itself a monopoly on our currency and credit through an act of Congress, actually creates currency out of thin air. They then loan this currency into the market, typically through the government. Typically they buy U.S. government bonds, although they also lend some to the commercial banking sector through the discount window. And they loan this money out into the economy at interest. And yet they never created the interest.

So take just a very simple example. Let's say the Federal Reserve creates one dollar. They loan that dollar into the economy by purchasing a U.S. Treasury bond. So the Federal Reserve is now sitting on a Treasury bond worth a dollar. Of course, there has to be an interest rate attached to that.

So let's just say the interest rate is 5%. So at some point, that bond needs to be repaid with a dollar and of course five cents of interest. So that dollar starts working its way through the economy. The government starts spending it. They spend it on troops. They spend it on studying the effect of cocaine on shrimp.

They spend it on killing babies, Ukraine, whatever it is they choose to spend it on. That money starts circulating. It gets into the commercial banking sector. Again, the commercial banks now start creating money. They take that dollar as a deposit and they multiply that through what's called the fraction reserve banking system. But again, they're creating the principle but not the interest. And so at the Federal Reserve level and at the commercial banking level, you have currency being created out of nothing, being lent into the economy at interest with the interest never having been created.

So what happens when that money has to be paid back? Well, the principle can be paid back but the interest cannot be and so you end up in a system where there's actually not enough money in the world to pay back all the debts that are owed and so that's where we are now. We actually saw this in the Great Depression. We had the Roaring Twenties where the Federal Reserve and back then, the dollar was still nominally attached to gold and so the Federal Reserve artificially manipulated interest rates. They kept interest rates far lower than the market would have had them and we experienced what was called the Roaring Twenties. Credit was cheap, credit was widely available and so businesses were expanding, malinvestment was happening on a massive scale.

In other words, investment in sectors, industries, businesses, ideas that never would have gotten funding in a free market scenario. The sense of prosperity, that's what economists including Keynesian economists referred to as the boom part of the boom cycle. What happened then is the Federal Reserve started raising interest rates. They started sucking money out of the economy and then asset prices collapsed, right? All that funny money that had been injected into the system that resulted in price bubbles, asset bubbles, in housing, in stocks, in various other sectors.

Suddenly all those prices are collapsing. People don't have enough money to pay anything back. You owe more on your mortgage than your house is worth and so everything gets sucked into a black hole and then the mega banks come in and start purchasing up everything for pennies on the dollar. We're in a very similar situation right now where the Federal Reserve started sucking money back out of the economy with this increase in interest rates and now they're really have two choices. Choice one would be to continue quote-unquote fighting inflation which inflation is really just thievery.

This is just they're creating new money and stealing value from you and so they can continue pretending to fight inflation, sucking money out of the economy and causing more of what we just saw with the Silicon Valley Bank and the other banks that have been collapsing or they can abandon their fake fight against inflation and they can start the printing presses again. They can start flooding the world with low interest, cheap credit and currency and what will happen then is of course what happens everywhere where we see this process. Same thing that happened in Zimbabwe where hundreds of trillions of dollars would not buy you a loaf of bread. Same thing that we just saw happen in Venezuela. Same thing that happened in the Weimar Republic that led to Adolf Hitler. Same thing that happened in Hungary.

Same thing that we've seen over and over and over again around the world. So this is a catastrophic process that's happening but it is engineered. Now if we assume for a moment that the Federal Reserve central bankers and really central planners are centrally planning the most important price in the economy which is the interest rate. We all know central planning doesn't work but somehow we let them centrally plan the most important price in the economy, the price of money. But let's just assume for a moment that they're well-meaning. Even if they were well-meaning, there's nothing they can do here that would end in a good outcome. If they continue fighting inflation, the economy will get sucked into a black hole, asset prices will collapse, the stock market bubble, real estate bubble, all of these things will collapse, massive layoffs in the future and it will just get worse the more they quote-unquote fight inflation. If they ignore the fight against inflation and continue printing, we'll have the destruction of our currency.

So even if they were well-meaning, there's really no sensible outcome here. They're not well-meaning and so when you realize that, when you realize that the Bank for International Settlements which is the central bank of the central banks has for years now been moving us in the direction of abolishing cash towards central bank digital currencies and of course they've been grooming the International Monetary Fund for a period of generations to ultimately serve as the central bank of the world overseeing a global currency, you realize we may be right on the precipice of a catastrophic financial, economic and monetary crisis that would lead very seamlessly into the abolishing of cash, the emergence of central bank digital currencies which can be totally tracked and controlled and ultimately a one world currency run and managed by the IMF. The IMF already has the proto one world currency in play, it already produces it, it already prints it, it's called the special drawing right and right now it's based on a basket of national fiat currencies and they already produce this in massive quantities.

During the COVID crisis, they created hundreds of billions of dollars worth of special drawing rights which is the equivalent of just taxing everybody in the world or at least everybody whose currencies make up this basket and redistributing that well. So all these systems are already in place, all that's left is the right crisis to usher them in and I tried to advance economics for 12 years, it usually takes me a year to get some of America's brightest high school seniors to where they need to be in terms of understanding the monetary system, the Federal Reserve, etc. But trying to do my best in very simple terms to explain this to people is difficult but I think the key takeaway here is that we're on the verge of massive economic turmoil, it has been planned and prepared and the same arsonists who set this all on fire are now posing as the saviors as they get ready to dump gasoline on this dumpster fire. The answer you just gave is certainly worth hearing again because you're right, you talk about finance, monetary policy, it can be confusing. Before I go on to the next one, I need to ask the follow up then, you know, almost all of us are involved in quote unquote the financial system, we have banks and we have investments in the market perhaps, so is there anything briefly that you'd recommend that people can do to not kind of go down with the ship when everything changes or are you just part of the system, you can't do anything about it? Yeah, that's a very good question and I think a lot of the ideas that I offered in the previous section where we were talking about food and agriculture, I think those things would be wise to consider. Yeah, I always, I get asked this a lot and so I always preface by saying I'm not a financial advisor, I don't give financial advice but I'm happy to share what my family and I have done to try to prepare but even before getting into that, I would preface by saying that as Christians, we need to become comfortable with the fact that we may lose all of our physical possessions, our savings, our wealth, all of it.

That is the agenda. I mean the World Economic Forum some years ago put out their quote unquote predictions for 2030 that by then you would own nothing. So there is a plan to make sure you own nothing and I think, you know, as Christians, we need to not be attached to our physical possessions, our savings and I know that's hard but we need to recognize that our protection, our security is not in our savings, our 401k, our gold and silver in our protection, our security is actually in Christ and so we need to get comfortable with that and we need to remind ourselves of that and with that said, I do think everybody is going to end up taking a massive haircut except the people engineering this who have insider information and are able to figure out where to move assets prior to whatever is the next shoe to drop.

But with that said, my family and me, we have purchased some rural agricultural land. We have purchased different stocks that I think would do better in the type of financial environment that we're discussing and because there are so many different ways that this could unfold, it sounds cliché but I really highly recommend diversification. On the one hand, you don't want to be sitting on a lot of cash because that cash may end up worthless, right? It may end up at the point where, you know, like in Zimbabwe or Venezuela, it's not even worth using as kindling for fire, right?

It's just garbage. You can take a whole wheelbarrow full to the grocery store and purchase nothing and so with that in mind, you don't want all your assets in cash but also with that in mind, there's a possibility that we could see a massive collapse in asset prices, in real estate prices, commercial, rural, you know, agricultural real estate, housing and also inequities in stocks and we could see a massive collapse of the stock market where things would lose 30%, 40%, 50%, 80% of their value and at that point, it would be wise to have a little bit of cash so that you can step in and scoop up some bargains whether that be stocks or real estate or whatever the case may be. If you're a gun guy, there are certain types of goods that have historically maintained their value. Firearms are one of those. Ammunition is one of those, long-term storable food, right? If you have non-perishable food, that will hold its value, right? It's not that beans or rice will be worth less and so I would recommend highly diversification but I also would urge people to prepare for spiritually, mentally and physically for the idea that we may be headed into some real economic turbulence in the months and years ahead. It may get very, very rough. It may feel very uncomfortable and we're just going to have to understand that our provision comes from the Lord, our security comes from the Lord and I would urge Christians, you know, I think some people probably hear this and they get scared, I would urge Christians not to succumb to fear, right?

The Lord did not send us a spirit of fear. That's the wrong response to this. The correct way to look at this I think is as a ministry opportunity and as an opportunity to share the gospel with our neighbors but we do, as I mentioned, you know, have families and we need to take prudent steps to protect those families and so I think it'd be very wise to start considering these things, maybe talk to a financial advisor. One more thing I'd recommend is if people have a way of diversifying their income, that would be very wise. You don't want to depend on just one source of income especially if you're working for say, you know, Fortune 500 company or something, you know, we saw what happened over the last three years.

Either you take this jab or you lose your job, you have multiple income sources. If you've got, you know, farm and a stake in a small business and a regular job and you know, things like that or royalties coming in from something, you know, you can better weather that storm and also try to, you know, make sure you have a good local community whether that be, you know, a church or a Bible study, a homeschool co-op, even just a group of neighbors that get together and, you know, grill out once a week and just, you know, share thoughts and it can make all the difference in the world and I would say also make sure you're involved in the political process, make sure you've got relationships with your local officials, your mayor, your city council, your sheriff, your county commissioners, even at the state level, you know, your state representatives, your state senators because it really can make all the difference in the world. You know, over the last three years in my little part of the world, life was pretty normal. We never had shutdowns, mandates, mask things, you know, vaccine, passport, none of that.

I mean, where I stay, life was basically normal, right, except for a few people putting on masks and stuff at the grocery store. We were never ordered to do anything and that is because we had good, decent, God-fearing constitution respecting Americans at our city government, at our county government and also in our state government. So try to work with the people that God has placed in authority to make sure that they understand what is the purpose of government as far as God is concerned and what is their constitutional authority as far as the constitution of our country and of your state permits. You've been listening to Alex Newman today in the program and just a reminder, we have one more week with him coming up where he will discuss these next four pillars and you can also get a DVD of this presentation we've been talking about that he did on The Great Reset. You can order it for a donation of any amount to the Christian worldview.

Our contact information will come up immediately following today's program. Let's not be afraid. God uses the sinful schemes of man to bring about his plan. That's what the believer can know. But if you are not a believer in Christ, I urge you today, do not harden your heart, humble yourself before God, confess that you are a sinner. Put your faith in Jesus Christ, his perfect life, his substitutionary death on the cross as paying God's required penalty for your sin, his miraculous resurrection proving that he alone has the power over sin and death. God promises to forgive you and grant you eternal life. If you need to find out more, go to our website and click on the page, What Must I Do to Be Saved? Let's remember, Jesus Christ and his word are the same yesterday and today and forever.

So until next time, think biblically, live accordingly, and stand firm.
