Russia is mounting troops on Ukraine's border and the U.S. may or may not be concerned about it, depending on the day. But one man has written a proposal to mediate the issue. Joining us today is the author of that proposal, David Pyne (emptaskforce.us), Deputy Director of National Operations for the EMP Task Force. He details his proposal, which contains what many may consider controversial solutions to the Russia-Ukraine conflict. Ultimately whatever proposal is out there should be to America's benefit strategically, and that's what his proposal tries to do, he asserts. He and John also talk about U.S. leaders refusing to harden our grid against EMP attacks and reducing our nuclear arsenal.
A recent cyber attack against Microsoft is thought to have originated in China. Is our government doing anything to protect U.S. citizens, companies, and its own assets from cyber attack? Lending his machine learning expertise to us today is Weifeng Zhong (policychangeindex.org), Senior Research Fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University. He looks at not only our government's attempts to thwart online attacks, but also at censorship in the culture war. The powers that be and politically correct are protecting China, making it more difficult to recognize that they are a threat. Will free speech be enough to fight against China?
