One week ago, tragedy struck at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon, leaving 9 dead and the shooter himself. Reports have surfaced that the shooter asked about people's religion. If they said they were Christian, they received a bullet through the head. Others were shot in the legs.

Jim encouraged listeners to continue to be in prayer for this community that continues to be in mourning for the families of the victims.

Like so many previous mass shootings, this one also happened in a gun-free zone. In light of this it's been said that President Obama is preparing executive actions on gun control with even some hints of confiscation.

Joining Jim to discuss this issue was Alan Gottlieb. Alan is the Chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms and founder of the Second Amendment Foundation. He has authored some twenty books including, 'Shooting Blanks: Facts Don't Matter to the Gun Ban Crowd' and 'Assault on Weapons: The Campaign to Eliminate Your Guns.' He is also the publisher of and The Gottlieb-Tartaro Report.

What bothered Alan was the fact that there were still bodies on the floor and the President had no facts in front of him as he made his comments. He was supposedly pushing for a universal background check law but the shooter went through background checks every time he bought his firearms. The President also talked about banning assault rifles and semi-automatic weapons when the shooter used a handgun. In other words there was a definite disconnect between what the President was pushing for and the reality of what might have helped the situation.

President Obama uses phrases like 'common sense gun control' like they've passed in the United Kingdom and Australia. They've passed gun bans there and Alan doesn't believe the American public looks at that as 'common sense.'

Even the community of Roseburg seems to see the problem. Jim quoted the publisher of the Roseburg Beacon who was on television with Bill O'Reilly and said, 'Now he wants to come to our community and stand on the corpse of our loved ones and make some kind of political point. It's not going to be well received by our people, not by our families, not by our elected officials.'

So would the establishment of more gun laws prevent more mass shootings? Alan said we already have 22,500 laws on the books in the U.S. that restrict the right to be able to use firearms for self-defense, ownership, use and possession. As Alan put it, 'What makes you think one more law is going to stop a crazed murderer from doing something like this?

Jim wondered what's going on in the President's home town of Chicago on this issue? After all, aren't they pretty strict on gun control? Shouldn't Chicago be a pretty safe city?

Alan responded by noting that the President ignores what happens in Chicago. He doesn't talk about it. It destroys his narrative because they have strong gun control laws. There isn't even one licensed gun dealer in the city limits that you can buy a gun from.

Do we have any indications as to what the President's new actions will entail? Will they include gun confiscation? Find out when you review this edition of Crosstalk.

When Barack Obama was a senator and campaigning for the presidency, he promised something called a National Civilian  Police Force.  In light of that, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch has announced a new Strong Cities Network that was launched September 29th.  This network would plug local police departments into international cooperation and shared resources  with their peers all across the world. 

Should there be applause for this network or action taken against it?  Joining Jim to discuss this effort was Tim Brown.  Tim is an author and editor at,, and  He is a father of 10 and a lover of liberty.

The Strong Cities Network is a national initiative that will be supported by the United Nations which Tim noted is neither American or Christian.  The network will bring to the federal government, initiatives that are part of other nation's governments.  It will not be based upon the Constitution.  This is important because as Tim pointed out, the Constitution is not the law of the land.  It is the law that binds and restricts federal electives.

Why should people be concerned if this is about protecting America citizens?  Tim cited an article he wrote where he described the Muslim refugee resettlement program as actually the U.N.'s attempt to vulcanize and terrorize the West by bringing in individuals whose ideology is at odds with ours.
So what will be the response?  Obviously there will be those who will stand up against it.  Since the Strong Cities Network is designed to target violent extremism, the network will determine who is an extremist in America cities.

Who or what entities come under the rubric of violent extremism?  Tim indicated that the document doesn't tell you because they want to make it innocuous.  However, the Obama administration has given indications in the past who they feel  fit the definition.  They include:

--Those who talk about individual liberties
--Those who advocate for states rights
--Those who want to make the world a better place under a Christian worldview
--Those who believe the colonists sought to free themselves from British rule
--Those interested in defeating the Communists
--Those who are anti-homosexual
--Those who are anti-Muslim
--The Patriot Movement
--Members of the Family Research Council
--Anyone opposed to Agenda 21
--Those with concerns about gun control
--Anyone who is anti-abortion
--Evangelical Christians

Is the Strong Cities Network another step in the reduction of American sovereignty and a possible threat to your civil and religious liberties?  You decide when you review this vital edition of Crosstalk.

Guest:  Rich Christiano

Listen: MP3 ​| Order

Rich Christiano is a film writer, director and producer.  In 2002 he, along with his brother Dave, formed Five & Two Pictures.  Rich has been involved with Multiple films.  He is the writer, director and producer of such films as 'The Appointment,' 'Time Changer,' 'Unidentified' and 'The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry.'  Rich has been involved with a film called, 'Amazing Love: The Story of Hosea' and his newest release, 'A Matter of Faith.'

These days it's not uncommon to hear about young people who go off to college and eventually abandon their faith.  It can start in subtle fashion but before long they're no longer attending church, reading the Bible, they may show signs of rejecting God as creator and even questioning the authority of God's Word.

So what can parents do?  Rich decided to be part of the solution by producing a powerful, dramatic film that will open your eyes to not only the college pressures and what's philosophically going on in those institutions, but also the drift that can take place in the life of those students who call themselves, 'Christians.'

What motivated Rich to make such a movie?  He came to the realization that evolution is taught in colleges and universities as a matter of fact.  That bothered Rich because he realizes that no one can prove evolution.  He also realizes that no one can prove creation either so this really comes down to a matter of faith, hence, the title of the movie.

'A Matter of Faith' is about a daughter of loving, Christian parents who takes a biology class at the local university.  Her professor teaches evolution but he's funny, clever and interesting and before long the girl starts drifting.

After about five weeks when she comes home to visit her parents, her father senses something's wrong.  Her father goes online and uncovers information that tells him the professor is an evolutionist so his desire is to find out why he doesn't also teach biblical creation as an alternative.  

The campus happens to have monthly debates and it's the turn of the biology department to host the next debate.  When the girl's father comes to talk to the professor, the professor cleverly corners him and challenges him to a friendly debate on the subject.  The father accepts but this creates conflict with his daughter in part because she feels this situation is going to cause her embarrassment on campus.

Should he back out to appease his daughter?  Should he stand up for the truth by keeping his promise to debate the professor?    

This Crosstalk includes audio excerpts from a classroom challenge by the professor, a debate among key characters, the movie trailer and much more as Rich and Jim discuss this new movie project.

David Rives is president and founder of David Rives Ministries.  He is involved with historical, archaeological and scientific research and is committed to spreading the truth of the ultimate creator.  He's written books, has produced videos, formed the Genesis Science Network and writes a regular column for  

David's passion from the beginning has been astronomy.  He eventually began doing photography where he was viewing the magnificent formations in outer space and he wanted to share what he saw with others.  After working up a presentation, speaking in some local churches and forming a non-profit ministry, he produced an amateur documentary called, 'The Heavens Declare the Glory of God.'  It took off quickly and was eventually translated into Russian, German Ukrainian and even began appearing on Christian television.      

He noticed there weren't many people addressing the issue of biblical astronomy. He looked at some of the problems related to an explosion that created everything, most notably, where did the matter come from that was part of the 'big bang' in the first place?  He concluded that if the big-bang can't answer the question concerning the origin of matter, it has a major problem.

He began to do some research that quickly turned into his book, 'Wonders Without Number' and then he produced a 30 minute documentary called, 'In the Beginning: Creation According to Genesis.'  It was a semi-finalist at the largest Christian film festival in the world and before long he was doing a weekly video column on World Net Daily.

All of this made him realize that people have a hunger to learn the scientific evidence of what we read in the Bible.  David realizes the Bible is not a science text.  However, wherever it does speak on science, the Bible is 100% accurate.  In fact, he came to discover that it predated scientific discovery in some instances by thousands of years.       

Some of the questions answered by David included:

--Did the Bible communicate germ theory long before man discovered it?
--Do the stars 'speak'?  
--Does the Bible actually speak against a flat earth?
--Are sound science and the Bible compatible?
--Is there water on Mars?

This broadcast began with Jim Schneider sharing and commenting on troubling comments from President Obama as he gave his speech at the Democratic National Committee's LGBT gala held at Gotham Hall in New York City this past Sunday. Below are some of the President's thoughts:

'7 Years ago we came together not just to elect a President but to reaffirm our faith in that most American of ideals, the notion that people no matter where they come from, what they look like, what their last name is or who they love, can change this country. And from the beginning that faith was tested by a great recession, by political obstruction, by established barriers and everyday indignities all of which reminded us that our march toward equality was unfinished.'

He went on to say, 'Tonight we live in an America where 'don't ask, don't tell' is something that don't exist. We live in America where a growing number of older generations recognize that love is love and younger generations don't even know what all the fuss was about. And tonight, thanks to the unbending sense of justice passed down through generations of citizens who never gave up hope that we could bring this country closer to our founding ideals that all of us are created equal, we now live in America where our marriages are equal as well.'

Several paragraphs later he indicated that while we cherish religious freedom, this freedom grants no one the right to deny our fellow Americans their constitutional rights.

Other LGBT related items included:

--The 2015 Corporate Equality Index compiled by the pro-homosexual Human Rights Campaign has a record 366 major businesses earning a perfect score of 100% indicating that the HRC completely approves of their policies, practices and benefits for their LGBT employees. This is up from just 13 businesses with a perfect score in 2002.

--Frito Lay released its 'rainbow' colored Doritos with proceeds going to support the 'It Gets Better' campaign.

--The largest Presbyterian denomination in the United States has for the first time appointed an openly gay person to serve as interim executive director for one of its agencies.

--Regarding homosexual marriage, Pastor and author Rob Bell told Oprah Winfrey that '...the church will continue to be even more irrelevant when it quotes letters from 2,000 years ago as their best defense when you have in front of you flesh and blood people who are your brothers and sisters and aunts and uncles and co-workers and neighbors and they love each other and they just want to go through life with someone.'

--The United States has the greatest number of listings for calendar events for the LGBT community compared to any other nation. Jim went through an extensive list of these events and what they are specifically attempting to celebrate.
