Our exit non-strategy from Afghanistan was a complete debacle and the political fallout is just beginning. But there are geopolitical consequences as well. On today's podcast, John and Producer Steve discuss how other world leaders are taking notice of our weak leadership and wondering how best to take advantage of it. China is surrounding Taiwan with warships, essentially daring us to defend the island country. Iran will no doubt be interested in purchasing from the Taliban all the weapons and vehicles the U.S. military left behind. And even now, some in the leftist media are calling out the Biden administration for its terrible handling of this. There's a lot more happening than just "Biden is bad" or "look at the people clinging to the plane."
China is positioning itself to become the world's biggest superpower, replacing the U.S. as leader on the world stage. Retired U.S. Navy Intelligence Captain James Fanell is back with us this week from his home in Switzerland. Chinese leadership is saying one thing, but their actions convey something completely different. Under President Trump, we were attempting to stay even with China, but with the new Biden administration, we may lose any advantage we once had. With their aggressive tactics, will China surpass the U.S. as the world's most dominant superpower?
Reading from the leftist playbook, groups aligned with the BDS movement in Israel are now shouting 'Jewish supremacism!' Dexter Van Zile (www.camera.org), Christian Media Analyst with the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting and Analysis, discusses how Christian groups are getting caught up in untrue narratives from different anti-Israel groups and justifying their actions against the Jewish state.
Finally this week, we look at the case of Kevin Clinesmith, the FBI lawyer who plead guilty to falsifying evidence during the Spygate scandal in 2016. He was recently sentenced to probation – effectively a slap on the wrist. We welcome back Thomas Lifson (www.americanthinker.com), Founder and Editor of American Thinker, who reviews the Clinesmith case and shows how the establishment circles their wagons and always seems to weather the storm while the little guy is afforded no such protections.
China is positioning itself in various arenas to become the world's biggest superpower and thus de facto leader on the world stage. Retired U.S. Navy Intelligence Captain James Fanell is back with us today from his home in Switzerland to lend his geopolitical expertise. He looks at the disingenuous words coming from Chinese leadership about how they want unity and peace, but their actions say something completely different. Under President Trump, we were attempting to stay even with China, but with the new Biden administration, the fear is we will lose any tactical advantage we once had. From a military buildup that is vastly outpacing the U.S. to their efforts at information warfare online, China is set to surpass the U.S. as the world's most dominant superpower.
There are two countries in the world right now vying to be the most powerful – the United States and the People's Republic of China. Brian Kennedy (www.presentdangerchina.org), Chairman of the Committee on the Present Danger: China, joins us to look at the difference between our two presidential candidates when it comes to China relations, election interference by not only China but also Russia (and who it is they prefer), and the overall battle between us and China for global supremacy.
We look at the geopolitics of the energy markets – the U.S. has finally gotten to the point where we are able to sell energy to the rest of the world. The U.S. also needs to be prepared for this showdown with China and not be caught short like so many times in the past.
Our biggest geopolitical threat today is not Russia as the media would have you believe; it is China. Joining us is Captain James Fanell (www.gcsp.ch), Retired U.S. Naval Intelligence Director, who draws on his experience and knowledge of China, examining China's goal of world domination by 2049, their battle with us in the space race, and their military strategy around the world.
This week we recognized the 75th anniversary of the dropping of the first atomic bomb on Japan in 1945. Tom Lewis (www.tomlewis4.wixsite.com), retired officer of the Royal Australian Navy, joins us to discuss his new book, Atomic Salvation, about how dropping the A-bomb may have saved millions of lives. The narrative about whether or not it was a good idea to drop the bombs has changed dramatically over the years.
Next, we play a clip from John's appearance on KYMS radio last weekend where he and host, Lee Lancaster, chat about the church and how it has handled crises, both in the past and in today's turbulent times.
There is a reason for the turbulent times, but it can be a bit overwhelming to try and make sense of it all. We wrap up the show this week with John's boralogue, where he details the stages Marxists and postmodernists go through to destroy our country. It's getting to a point where we can no longer hunker down and hope the chaos passes us by. We need to stand up for what is right before it's too late.
Taking a look at China today, specifically their military build-up and strength. Joining us is Captain James Fanell (www.gcsp.ch), Retired U.S. Naval Intelligence Director, who draws on his experience and knowledge of China, showing China's goal of world domination by 2049 and their military build-up, which has been achieved in part through technology theft.
Captain Fanell looks at the space race between the U.S. and China, whether the U.S. is ready militarily should a conflict arise, and China's strategy in acquiring islands, positioning their Navy, and engaging with other countries.
