"They came with battering rams..." so the story begins that should frighten every single American in this very hour. The scene is Wisconsin. It is early morning, just at dawn. In simple homes in suburbia the police roll up and suddenly begin a series of raids on average citizens. Crashing through doors, terrorizing women and children, screaming out orders, seizing property, records, computers and more. The alleged crime? These folks gave to a political campaign or supported a campaign in defense of Governor Scott Walker. Now they are alleged enemies of the state.

This is not fiction. We have been monitoring this story for two years. After months of gag orders in the Wisconsin courts, finally the facts are coming to light in the media. Here is a full telling of the story from National Review. Please read it and decide for yourself. How fall will the Left go to silence anyone who dares to challenge their political super-structure? Will Americans rise up and end this pattern of political persecution? We are not talking about ISIS on the shores of a foreign land. We are talking about Americans being arrested and prosecuted for daring to speak their mind. When will we the people rise up?

A.D. Continues to lead
By Mr. David Zanotti

For two weeks running NBC's "A.D. The Bible Continues" has led network ratings. We are taking time to notice how people are responding to this series produced by Mark Burnett and Roma Downey. Overall the production quality of A.D. is quite good and the acting is exceptional. The program is making people think. Many of us are now studying the real account of the resurrection of Jesus and the birth of the Church in the book of Acts.

One fact that pops out of the history is the fact that Jesus Christ and the reality of His resurrection changed everything, including the political powers of Israel and Rome. The reality of the empty tomb was a truth that neither Herod nor Pilate could overcome. 

Pleas tune in and join the conversation on A.D. this week on The Public Square.

A.D.Part I
By Mr. David Zanotti

One hour was enough. The first episode of A.D. The Bible Continues opened with a question and in one hour presented that question over and over again. "What is truth?" The question Pilate asked Jesus in their moment of confrontation on Good Friday. The program also included this statement from Jesus: "You are right in saying I am a king. In fact for this reason I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to Me."

These words between Jesus and Pilate are recorded in the book of John, yet many people have never heard them. Anyone watching A.D. would have heard them. These words still split the reality of the universe this day. "Everyone on the side of the truth listens to Me."

After one hour I am willing to speak to those who criticized us for endorsing A.D. in advance of seeing all 12 hours. The first hour left me speechless. Downey and Burnett had the courage to ask the right questions. They were honest with the content. They did not betray the historic record of the eyewitness accounts. I pray the balance of the series stays true to the decisions made in this first episode. 

As for quality, A.D. does not disappoint. Burnett has owned his indictment against creating "crappy content". Of course he is telling the best story ever written but even with that advantage, he could have messed it up -- and he still might. Episode One, however, was masterful in cinematography, casting, acting and music. At one point the sound editors cued the music at the blinking of Pilate's eyes. Thats the stuff that wins artistic awards. Burnett and Downey had the courage to include powerful biblical imagery like the Passover sacrifice of lambs and the renting of the the Temple curtain at the moment of the death of Jesus. They clearly have studied the text with passion.

If you would like to tell us what you think about Episode One please send us your thoughts at info@aproundtable.org. Join in the conversation with Mark Burnett and Roma Downey, the Executive Producers of A.D. right now on The Public Square. We have an exclusive interview with them playing at this very moment. Join the conversation. And please -- tell a friend.

We hope you will take a few moments and listen to this week's edition of The Public Square featuring Mark Burnett and Roma Downey. The series A.D. is going to be with us starting Easter Sunday evening and continuing for several more weeks. You can simply download by clicking on "podcast" here on the home page or by downloading the TPS phone app. All of this programming is available to all of us free of charge because of the generous contributions of so many who support The Public Square. We will be talking about A.D. in studio this week along with the raging controversy over the Indiana law protecting religious liberty. It looks like the book of Acts is coming true once again in lots of interesting ways. Please listen in and stay tuned. A most Blessed Easter to all.

Commander-in-Chief?
By Mr. David Zanotti

Yes, the President is Commander in Chief, but commander of what? That is the question Alan Dershowitz poses in a recent article. Is the President Commander of American foreign policy? Can he rule in this arena in a singular fashion without the U.S. Congress? You'll find the answers from the U.S. Constitution clearly written in this article. The answer might surprise you.
