Guest: Twila Brase

Listen: MP3 | Order

Twila Brase is the president and co-founder of Citizens' Council for Health Freedom which exists to protect health care choices and patient privacy. She is a certified public health nurse and provides daily commentary on her 'Health Freedom Minute' broadcast. Twila has been called one of the '100 Most Powerful People in Health Care.'

The Obama administration decided that a special enrollment period for Obamacare was needed for those who may find themselves surprised when they have their taxes prepared and discover that they owe a penalty to the federal government for being uninsured. The enrollment has been opened up until April 30th. However, there haven't been very many taking advantage of this which has led Twila to believe that a lot of people are choosing to pay the penalty rather than get themselves covered under Obamacare or some other way.

Listeners must keep in mind that Obamacare is a national health care program. You have to apply to the federal government for it which means you are enrolling in what Twila describes as Medicaid for the middle class on a sliding fee scale. Any private insurance company connection has that company acting as a contractor for the government's program. In addition, the coverage is poor, it's expensive, the deductibles are high, if you get subsidies you're relying on taxpayers to cover you and the networks are narrow so you have limited options regarding where you can go.

Several years ago a law was put into place establishing the amount of pay for physicians treating Medicare patients. The law automatically trimmed pay according to the amount that healthcare expenses rise. There have been stop-gap bills created for years to stop this trim from occurring. Now they want to repeal the formula that's in place and come up with a new way to pay doctors taking care of Medicare patients. The new method is really about putting the federal government in control of the doctors.

The new proposal is called The Medicare Access & CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (HR-2—also known as the 'Doc-Fix' bill). It has already passed the House and is sitting in the Senate. HR-2 would do number of things including: (1)--Start a new merit-based pay system for doctors based upon 'quality.' This factor would be decided not by the doctors themselves but by the government. (2)--Resource use. How many staff, dollars and pieces of equipment is the doctor using to take care of you? Your doctor would have to report this to the federal government. (3)--Does your doctor use electronic health records and is this information being reported to the federal government?

Jim and Twila also discussed negative examples of the impact of Obamacare on individuals and businesses; why the House overwhelmingly passed HR-2 when many of them campaigned heartily against Obamacare during the election; Obamacare for released prisoners; the battle in Florida over Medicaid expansion; how Obamacare can be fought; the privacy concerns surrounding a national patient tracking system and much more.

Guest: Ryan Anderson

Listen: MP3 | Order

Ryan Anderson researches and writes about marriage and religious liberty as the William E. Simon Fellow at the Heritage Foundation. He is co-author of the book, 'What Is Marriage? Man and Woman: A Defense.' It's a book that Justice Samuel Alito cited twice in his dissenting opinion in the Supreme Court case involving the Defense of Marriage Act.

The original Religious Freedom Restoration Act that Governor Pence of Indiana recently signed into law was modeled in almost identical fashion to the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act that passed unanimously in the House of Representatives and the Senate and was signed into law by President Bill Clinton. It means that if the state government was going to substantially burden the free exercise of religion, it would need to prove that it's doing so for a compelling state interest in the least restrictive possible way.

Both Hillary Clinton and Senator Schumer have tried to say that Indiana's version is different from what President Clinton signed into law. However, Ryan believes they are wrong. He noted that if you look at the way the federal law is written and has been interpreted by the courts, Indiana's law mimics what the federal law was intended to protect. Critics claim the federal law was intended to protect individual people, not corporate people. That's false because the federal law in the Federal Dictionary Act defines the word 'person' to include corporations, both for and non-profit. In fact, this understanding was verified by the Supreme Court last year in the Hobby Lobby case.

So why has there been such a national backlash by the media, national LGBT activist groups and even corporate America? Ryan believes the change in attitude over the last 22 years since the federal law has passed has to do with the confluence of big government, big business and liberal sexual values. He cited a case from last year involving abortion and contraception. Certain big business interests wanted the government to mandate that all FDA approved contraceptives, including certain drugs that cause abortion, must be covered in all health plans. The same confluence is now playing out in the same-sex marriage debate.

Ryan also described the so-called 'fix' to the Indiana bill and what the 'end-game' is for those who are creating the backlash.

After his interview with Ryan, Jim brought the following related headlines to the attention of listeners:

--Many corporations are unified in shifting lawmaker focus away from what they see as discriminatory policy to passing comprehensive, non-discrimination protections for LGBT individuals.
--A New York Times article claims Christian churches must be convinced or coerced to change their teachings on homosexuality.
--A gay activist believes churches should lose their tax exempt status if they lobby to preserve the right of religious believers not to promote homosexual behavior.
--Michigan's governor would veto religious freedom legislation if it came to his desk.
--The so-called 'fix' to Indiana's religious freedom restoration law could send Christians to jail.
--Guam rejected a gay marriage license application. The couple plans to take their case to federal court.
--Madison, Wisconsin, implements explicit legal protections for people who don't believe in God.
--Turmoil in the Republican Party over religious freedom legislation.
--Texas is afraid of what religious freedom legislation might do to their economy.

Jim also read from the Michael Swift essay from 1987 that outlines the homosexual agenda. The essay has been excused over the years as being satirical yet when you see how much of its attitude and described behavior is coming true, it appears to be quite sincere.

Today more than ever we seem to be bombarded with individuals who are intentionally attempting to get people to believe lies regarding Christianity, our Lord and Savior and His word, the Bible.

One example is Reverend John Shuck, who ministers at Southminster Presbyterian Church in Beaverton, Oregon. Reverend Shuck claims he doesn't believe in God yet defends his 'Christianity.' He also claims that the Bible is a human product and that while Jesus may have been a historical figure, most of what we know about him is legend. To Reverend Shuck, God is a symbol of myth-making and isn't credible as a supernatural being or force.

This is just one example that Vic presented of people today who, while standing in their pulpits wearing their religious garb, propose ideas that have nothing to do with the Bible.

The result? A survey of more than 4,000 adults shows that Americans are conflicted regarding Jesus, the central figure of Christianity. The survey showed that the idea that Jesus is God just doesn't register well with 'millennials' (those born between 1984 and 2002).

This edition of Crosstalk also mentioned a new Bible that replaces the name of God with that of rap star Kanye West, Vic retells the story of The Modernist Preacher Entering Hell and callers share their comments as well.

Guest: Sheriff David Clark Jr.

Listen: MP3 | Order

David Clarke Jr. is the sheriff of Milwaukee County. He began his law enforcement profession in 1978 serving first with the Milwaukee Police Department where he served 24 distinguished years. In 1999, Clarke became commanding officer of MPD's Intelligence Division which was responsible for producing and sharing intelligence and providing dignitary protection in conjunction with the Secret Service, the Department of State and other federal agencies. In 2002 he was appointed as sheriff of Milwaukee County by the sitting governor. He has been re-elected multiple times since. In May 2013 he was awarded 'Sheriff of the Year' from the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association. Also in 2013 he received a master's degree in Security Studies from the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, Center for Homeland Defense and Security. He has many memberships including the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives and the National Sheriffs Association.

Sheriff Clarke began by noting that he sees his job and the risks involved as a calling, an opportunity and an honor. He believes it's a privilege to work for the government, it's not a right and the fact that he gets to make a difference and serve people in the town he grew up in is incredible.

Vic mentioned the Milwaukee unrest of 1967 and Sheriff Clarke noted that we're seeing some of this play out today starting with the Ferguson, Missouri, protests that extended to New York, Boston, San Francisco and Los Angeles. He indicated that these later protests were anarchists involved in copycat efforts. They're an offshoot of the anti-capitalist 'Occupy Wall Street' movement. Their movement died out so they no longer had a cause. So when the tragic use of force incident took place in Ferguson, this same group converged on the city, exploiting the situation and the people, using it as a flashpoint to continue their socialist agenda.

When asked if there's any abuse of police using deadly force on black males as compare to white males, his answer was interesting. Sheriff Clarke responded by communicating that research and data taken from 2009 to 2012 shows that 34% of incidents of deadly force were against black males. On the other hand, 62% of such incidents were against white males.

Sheriff Clarke believes President Obama has benefited greatly by his 'divide and conquer' approach as shown by his pitting of men against women, blacks against whites, rich against the poor, along with his anti-police officer approach. In the latter case he provided proof citing President Obama's nomination of Debo Adegbile to be the Deputy Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division in the Department of Justice. This is problematic for Clarke because Adegbile took up the cause of an admitted and convicted Philadelphia cop killer who was sentenced to death.

These points and others were discussed and phone calls were taken from listeners as Vic and Sheriff Clarke took on this controversial issue dealing with law enforcement and racial issues.
