An Indiana pastor has launched an effort to connect Christian leaders across the country and root out the influence of a "woke" Christianity that undermines the biblical and traditional doctrines of the faith."We've got 500 pastors that have signed this statement across all sorts of denominational lines, committing themselves to really sound biblical teaching as a primary doctrine and to help eradicate wokeism from the American pulpit," Lucas Miles, pastor of the Nfluence Church in Granger, Indiana, and leader of the Nfluence network, tells "The Daily Signal Podcast."Enjoy the show!

Can states prohibit social media companies from censoring the speech of their platforms' users? That's a question now before the Supreme Court. The justices heard oral arguments Monday in a pair of major First Amendment cases. The cases stem from laws passed in Texas and Florida in 2021 after a number of social media companies' deplatforming of then-President Donald Trump following the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot.Following social media companies' banning of Trump and a number of other conservative voices, both Texas and Florida passed laws preventing social media platforms, such as YouTube and Facebook, from censoring users’ constitutionally protected speech. But two trade associations challenged those laws on behalf of the social media companies. The trade groups argue that social media companies' decisions about what speech they censor is an editorial choice protected by the First Amendment. Are social media platforms required to carry everyone's views? Or like newspapers, do these Big Tech companies have a First Amendment right to choose what speech is and is not allowed on their platforms? The justices are expected to issue their decision on the case in June. Texas state Sen. Bryan Hughes, who sponsored the Texas law; Adam Candeub, a Michigan State University law professor; and Jack Fitzhenry, a legal fellow with The Heritage Foundation (of which the Daily Signal is the news outlet), join “The Daily Signal Podcast” to offer their analyses on the arguments before the high court on Monday and what the justices' ruling could mean for Americans. Enjoy the show!

The national tragedy of more drug overdose deaths, suicides, and homicides won’t be solved “if we have to look at each other through the prism of race,” activist Bob Woodson says.“There are people who are profiting from the grievance of our society, and we must challenge these racial profiteers,” says Woodson, an author and founder of the Washington-based Woodson Center.Some “try to promote” the racial challenges in America, Woodson says, citing two examples.“Black Lives Matter ... comes along and collects $100 million in white guilt money," he says. "Ibram X. Kendi at Boston University collects $48 million to do anti-racist research.” In Woodson's view, "race has been a distraction” to addressing the real problems confronting poor communities.Since the 1980s, Woodson, who is black, has worked to address issues plaguing poor communities across the country. As a young man, he was part of the civil rights movement. But, finding himself in disagreement with some aspects of the movement, Woodson says he “began to work on behalf of low-income people of all races.” Now, at 86, Woodson says, The Woodson Center gives a voice "to the voiceless grassroots leaders who are laboring in these communities confronting drugs and violence and out-of-wedlock births.”  Woodson joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to expose the harmful effects of a focus on race on black communities and to explain how the strategy of The Woodson Center transforms lives and entire neighborhoods. Enjoy the show!

Former President Donald Trump is still facing multiple legal cases against him, including federal charges.In Manhattan, Trump is looking at felony charges over alleged hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels. In Georgia, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has accused Trump of seeking to interfere with the results of the 2020 election. The Justice Department’s special counsel, Jack Smith, brought two cases against Trump, one involving classified documents and the other stemming from the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.Last week, a New York judge ordered Trump to pay $354 million in his civil fraud case involving allegations that Trump improperly inflated the value of his property holdings. And in Colorado, Trump is fighting to keep his name on the presidential primary ballot in Colorado after the state Supreme Court ruled he couldn't appear on the ballot, citing the 14th Amendment. The latter case is now in the hands of the U.S. Supreme Court.The cases Trump is facing “paint a picture of a weaponized justice system,” according to Kyle Brosnan, chief counsel for the Oversight Project at The Heritage Foundation. (The Daily Signal is the news outlet of The Heritage Foundation.)“You have these rogue prosecutors in local jurisdictions in Atlanta and New York, and the attorney general of New York I’d throw in there, too, allocating vast amounts of resources to go after [Trump] when that's not really their job,” Brosnan said.He pointed to rising crime in cities such as New York and Atlanta as issues that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and Willis should be focusing their time and energy on instead.Brosnan joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to explain where the various cases against Trump currently stand.Enjoy the show!

China’s economy is struggling: Many young people can't find jobs, the nation’s real estate market is in trouble after two major property development companies failed, and China's stock market has seen a $7 trillion decline in just a few years. But Beijing has a plan to do something about it.When the “green energy” movement began, China recognized an opportunity, Erin Walsh explains. Beijing saw an “opening because they don't have oil, so they had to come up with something else,” said Walsh, senior research fellow for international affairs in the Asian Studies Center at The Heritage Foundation. “Because, how do you electrify and grow, and become No. 1 in the world, which is their goal; how do you do that if you don't have energy,” she asked. (The Daily Signal is the news outlet of The Heritage Foundation.) China has “hijacked the agenda” of the green movement, because the Asian giant is on the forefront of developing electric vehicles, batteries and solar energy, according to Walsh. Walsh joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to explain the factors that have led to China’s economic challenges and how Beijing is seeking to overcome its economic woes by further dominating the energy market. Enjoy the show!

When it became increasingly clear that the federal government was not going to stop the flow of illegal aliens across the border, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott began taking strategic action. “You look at the results, and they speak for themselves,” Brent Smith says of what Abbott has done to slow the flood of illegal crossings.  Smith serves as the county attorney for Kinney County, Texas, which borders Mexico and is about 130 miles west of San Antonio. Because of the enormous influx of illegal aliens crossing the border, Smith says, “Everything has changed” in his community. “People now, when you hear a helicopter flying in the air, kids know to run home,” Smith said. “And if you hear sirens, 99% of the time, it has to do with illegal immigration.”Even schools have "military barriers around them" to prevent smugglers from driving through the campus, he added. The county attorney also said his workload has multiplied many times over as frequent arrests of illegal aliens are made in the county. According to Smith, “preventing the entry, repelling them at the river” is the way to address the crisis. That's what Abbott has done in Eagle Pass, Texas, at Shelby Park. Under Abbott’s leadership, the Texas National Guard is preventing the Border Patrol from processing illegal aliens in Shelby Park, which is on the Rio Grande and which served as a popular crossing point until Texas assumed control of it.  The Texas National Guard has laid concertina wire fencing along the riverbank and built a 4,500-foot border wall using shipping containers topped with sharp razor wire to repel illegal crossings. Because crossings into Shelby Park have fallen to almost none, Smith says, Abbott will likely “expand the tactic that he's using in Shelby Park to other places.” Meanwhile, the Biden administration has been critical of Abbott’s recent tactics and has previously taken legal action against the governor's efforts to secure the border. Smith joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to explain the ongoing legal tensions between Texas and the federal government, and what could be next as the border crisis continues to unfold. Enjoy the show!

The Bible provides readers with glimpses into the personalities of Jesus' Twelve Apostles, but little is know about the details of their lives.That can be both a challenge and creative opportunity for the actors and writers on the set of the hit series “The Chosen.” “We know he's known as ‘Doubting Thomas,’” says Joey Vahedi, the actor who plays Thomas on the multiseason series. But the question that Vahedi says he has the opportunity to answer is “why is [Thomas] that person?” The writers of the show, Vahedi says, “take such great liberty with bringing this human perspective to all the characters, because we got to remember they're not saints yet.” The character of Thomas is significantly developed in the first three episodes of season four of “The Chosen,” which are in theaters now. Season four picks up right where season three left off, and “I think you get to see a much, much sweeter and kinder side to Thomas,” Vahedi says. “He's out of his shell, finally feels comfortable. He's ready. And on the flip side of that, Jesus' message is getting so much more radical, to the point where it is dangerous for everybody now.”Even outside of the Apostles, the latest season of “The Chosen” shows how the message of Jesus is affecting everyone who hears it. Kirk B. Woller, who plays the role of the Roman soldier Gaius, says his character is “toying with” the message he's hearing Jesus speak. “There's just great responsibility to me in all of this” to portray his character accurately, Woller said.Woller and Vahedi join “The Daily Signal Podcast” to share their own stories of how they became a part of “The Chosen” cast, and the hardest and most rewarding parts of playing their roles as they develop further in the new season. Enjoy the show!

I absolutely love the independent media. Otherwise, we would never know what's going on in this country. And what is going on is a sin

Hello! If you want to exchange cryptocurrency for any currency, for example, for the Czech crown, then I recommend this service to you https://b2.cash/exchange/btc-czk/. The advantage is that the exchange is carried out only at its office. You can calculate the approximate fee in advance, discuss all the details with the manager, and then come to the office to make a deal. It's reliable, legal and safe.

This is the future that you and I have seen, and I am amazed at the stupidity of people who are trying their best to avoid it. Maybe some people are just not ready to accept something new because they are afraid of risks? Then how come some people started investing in crypto in the first place? I think that thanks to apps like SingularityDAO, investing can become easier for experts and beginners alike. In any case, it makes my life much easier. I advise to browse the website of this application or read articles and reviews on medium.

Thank you for calling out Canada, it has had many or more of the same hate laws as the UK and has more than a decade of extra-judicial penalties against speech or writing even by journalists. It has definitely chilled public discourse on some controversial topics.

the woman WANTED it to go viral. She was "smoletting". her mistake was accusing a man with a documented history of support for the left and the squad. NEVER would he have used Trump's words to express himself.
