Ben Branam is the host of Modern Self Protection Podcast.
Brent Hamachek is a member of the Advisory Council for Turning Point USA and the co-author, along with Turning Point Founder, Charlie Kirk, of “Time for A Turning Point-Setting a Course for Free Markets and Limited Government for Future Generations.”
Brent founded his own business consulting practice, Segueway, in early 2000. Since then he has had over 140 engagements in more than 70 industries. He specializes in solving problems others have been unable to solve.
Prior to co-authoring “A Time for A Turning Point”, Brent had written six booklets for Turning Point, including “Capitalism Cures” which is a social justice defense of free markets and has been reprinted in Spanish. Brent speaks at businesses and college campuses around the country on variety of topics.
Craig “Sawman” Sawyer is the President of Veterans For Child Rescue, whose primary objectives are to educate and increase public awareness, assist law enforcement and other legal entities to prevent and reduce human and child sex trafficking. The undercover operations have been captured in the new documentary film (soon to release on Netflix and Amazon Prime), ContraLand.
Sawyer is a Marine veteran, former Navy SEAL, sniper, SCARS (Special Combat Aggressive Reaction System), and combat instructor, as well as running specialized teams responsible for providing “High-Threat, Mobile Security”.
With a varied career built around service and protection of others, Sawyer was one of the “Original 33” Federal Air Marshals, who were in place prior to the 9/11 attacks against the U.S.
He also instructs various advanced training courses as Director of Training for Cowtown Training Division in Scottsdale, AZ and Solutions Group International out of Beverly Hills, CA, in addition to other tactical contract work.
In 2013 Sawyer filmed Animal Planet’s “Battleground: Rhino Wars”, a 3-part television special about protecting African wild life from poachers, and was moved by a deep conviction that more needed to be done. He was concerned to see, first hand, just how vulnerable rhinos and elephants are to illegal poaching. Craig saw an opportunity to do more and vowed to make a real difference in the survival of endangered species.
After being officially invited by the Republic of Congo to help train their local park rangers in new techniques to prevent poaching, he saw an opportunity to help and has conducted exhaustive research and coordination with foreign governments and African authorities, charities and organizations to find the most effective way to make real improvements in the way we protect endangered species. He has put together a world class team of expert veterans to go back to Africa with an increasing effort to help save the last of the endangered. In 2015, the merger of Craig’s team and assets joined forces with MAMA in order to have maximum positive effect on the conservation issue. This joint effort, of which Craig “Sawman” Sawyer is the President, has become I.C.A.P., the International Coalition Against Poaching.

Greg Hopkins is the author of “A Time To Kill: The Myth Of Christian Pacifism”, Self Defense from a Biblical Perspective.
Defense attorney, prosecutor, and former judge, as well as a practicing weapons instructor, expert witness, and Bible teacher, Greg Hopkins is highly qualified to address these controversial topics.
Greg Hopkins’ book, A Time To Kill: The Myth of Christian Pacifism, argues that the Bible does not teach pacifist principles as a moral response to criminal assault but in fact, teaches just the opposite in both Old and New Testaments, praising soldiers and law enforcement on numerous occasions and giving civilians explicit permission to use deadly force in life-threatening situations.
Hopkins uses Scripture to demonstrate that the Bible commands Christians to be good stewards, prepared to protect self and the innocent from hostile attack.
A Time To Kill: The Myth of Christian Pacifism includes chapters about preparation for self defense, laws that govern self defense, understanding how criminals think, recovery from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), biblical appraisals of military and police, arguments on criminal punishment, the death penalty, and much more.
