Hostilities in Ukraine are still happening so we invite back today our Ukraine expert Reuben Johnson to evaluate the status of Russia, its military, and its leader while the battle rages on. He covers a lot of topics, including how pre-war predictions of Russia's success were way off, Russia's inability to be strategic on the battlefield, and the lack of Russian youth signing up for the military. He also addresses rumors about Vladimir Putin's health, gives some advice to the Biden administration, and comments on the recent attack on a Ukraine shopping center.

Anti-nuclear activists insist on doing away with nuclear weapons. They have no expertise on the topic, but they claim their opinions have more import than the actual experts. Back with us today is an actual expert on the topic, Dr. Peter Pry (emptaskforcenhs.com), Executive Director of the EMP Task Force on National and Homeland Security. He examines the facts about nuclear weapons, the history behind them, and the dangers of EMP. He looks at what America's capabilities are now and what we should do to improve them. He and John also touch on a few cultural issues in the U.S. and the creep of liberal values into society.

Eventually, the power, money, and control crowd will use the true believers and discard them when they're no longer useful. Most of the true believers today run on woke ideology. As our first guest this week, we welcome back Jason Hill (jasondamianhill.com), Professor of Philosophy at DePaul University in Chicago. Regardless of what the true believers tell you they are battling against, the power brokers are using them to destroy Western civilization. Most people don't agree with that ideology, but they also don't stand up to it out of fear of being canceled or worse. But standing up is exactly what needs to be done or there will be a fundamental transformation of our national identity.

People in positions of influence have warned America's leaders for years that we are woefully unprepared to fight against China or Russia militarily or in the cyber warfare arena. Have our leaders listened? Back with us this week is David Pyne (emptaskforce.us), Deputy Director of National Operations for the EMP Task Force on National and Homeland Security. He points out that our leaders are not listening but he has solutions for them anyway should someone eventually take heed. He lays out several different actions needed to shore up our defenses and hopes that it won't take a devastating attack against our country for them to be implemented.

We had elections this week and John comments on how parents and their strong feelings against CRT had a big impact on the governor's race in Virginia. But before we close out with that, John asks the question: why do Jews, as a voting bloc, tend to overwhelmingly vote for a party that doesn't support Israel or Jewish causes? We invite in Rabbi Dov Fisher (yioc.org) of Young Israel of Orange County, California to discuss. Part of the answer involves the nature of who is and who is not a Jew. He looks at Reform versus Orthodox Judaism as well as the history of anti-semitism.

Earlier this month, we looked at the different aspects and problems of America's defense systems with David Pyne (emptaskforce.us), Deputy Director of National Operations for the EMP Task Force on National and Homeland Security. Today, we welcome him back to offer some solutions to those problems. He describes different actions that need to be taken in order to shore up our defenses to combat the combined strength of Russia and China. Do the powers that be in Washington have the will to enact these suggestions? Or will we have to suffer another devastating attack before a fire is lit beneath them?
