There are many threats to the United States, but few are being examined thoroughly by those who could do something about them. Joining us today is David Pyne (emptaskforce.us), a Director with the EMP Task Force on National and Homeland Security. He and John discuss a variety of sobering topics including our missile defense system, how we would fare should China or Russia attack us, and why power companies strongly resist hardening the grid against a possible future EMP attack. When confronting a problem, it always helps to know the reality of the situation, otherwise you have virtually no shot at succeeding.
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.
