Yesterday we started a conversation with Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson about the geopolitical outlook between China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and the U.S. Today we continue that discussion, looking at the state of America's biased media and comparisons to Russian TV and newspapers. John and Reuben also discuss what will become of the Republican party following President Trump's exit from the White House and they take a deep dive into the worldview of the Left and how that has influenced Western society.
Today we continue our thread on geopolitics with part one of a two-part interview with Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson (thebulwark.com). He examines the precarious position Taiwan finds itself with China potentially emboldened to take over the small island country. He also looks at the sudden cancellation of Hong Kong passports, the history of Hong Kong along with China prematurely breaking the 1997 agreement, and finally China's social credit score system – and how we're seeing a similar version of it pop up here in the United States.
Join us tomorrow for part two of the conversation with Reuben Johnson where he and John discuss several cultural issues in the U.S.
With post-election frenzy in full swing here in the U.S., it's easy to overlook important stories abroad. Back with us today is Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson (thebulwark.com) who looks at the ouster of four pro-democracy lawmakers in Hong Kong and the potential problems that could follow. He covers not only the possible concerns of a more dominant China and a more capitulating U.S. under a Biden presidency, but also the possibility that after Hong Kong, Taiwan could be next on China's list.
We've heard stories for months about Hunter Biden and Burisma and possible corruption while Joe Biden was Vice President. Now a new set of stories are out about Hunter Biden's laptop and further data that could point to widespread corruption. What does it all mean? Back with us today is Reuben Johnson, military expert based in Kiev, Ukraine. He looks at how biased the media is in favor of the democrats and how differently they covered the Steel dossier story. Members of the Obama administration were in on the Trump persecution as well in 2016. He covers how Russia and Eastern European politics work and how that part of the world views the laptop corruption controversy.
Whirlwind of important topics on this week's show. First up, we welcome back defense and aerospace veteran Reuben Johnson (www.thebulwark.com) who examines the geopolitics of Belarus, with their growing uprisings; Russia and its future; and China's inroads into Eastern Europe with their Belt and Road Initiative.
Back here in America, the far leftist crowd is determined to rid our country of the Electoral College. Trent England (www.saveourstates.com), Founder and Executive Director of Save Our States, discusses the effort to convert us from a representative government for everyone to, what he dubs, the “United Big Cities of America.”
Science and medicine are supposed to be free of politics but it's an election year so all the rules are out the window. Research writer Dennis Behreandt (www.thenewamerican.com) is back with us to look at the science behind hydroxychloroquine as well as the bad publicity it has received simply because President Trump lauded its use. It's supposed to be scientifically – not politically – correct in the world of science.
Next we travel to the Middle East with David Rubin (www.shilohisraelchildren.org), former mayor of Shiloh, Israel, who joins us from his home there. He looks at both the strategic and economic implications of the Israel-United Arab Emirates agreement, focusing on the constant threat from Iran and the financial benefits to the UAE of partnering with the Middle East's only democracy.
We wrap up this week with John's analysis of the government criteria for future vaccine use and the ethical and legal implications in vaccine development and implementation.
Geopolitics in individual countries affect the world as a whole. Defense and aerospace veteran Reuben Johnson (www.thebulwark.com), is back with us from Kiev, Ukraine, to discuss a variety of topics including the growing uprising in Belarus and the future of its disgraced and unpopular leader, Putin's plan for not only Belarus but also the future of Russia, and how China is jockeying for position in Eastern Europe while at home, the Chinese Communist Party and its leader are lessening in popularity.
We hit the ground running this week with author and columnist Diane West (www.dianawest.net), who shows how the Marxist plan to destroy America goes back a century and the plan itself has been in plain sight the whole time. It is being enacted by the Deep State, whose actors have plotted to take down President Trump, and by Big Tech, who censoring information online and curtailing free speech.
Blatant election fraud just occurred in Belarus and the shock waves have radiated from Minsk all the way to Moscow. Defense and aerospace veteran Reuben Johnson (www.thebulwark.com), is back with us from Kiev, Ukraine to look at Vladimir Putin's next move, the geopolitics of Eastern Europe, the U.S.'s involvement, and how China could benefit from the chaos.
What happens when a false narrative falls apart? In this week's boralogue, John looks at the three stages of a collapsing narrative, from explaining away of inconsistencies to shutting people up through censorship. Those of us who know the truth must then use our freedom of speech to counter with facts. Finally, when they've been caught with their hand in the cookie jar, they simply redesign the cookie jar by claiming they were always for the now evident truth and hope that no one notices. Moving on, not repentance, is the way of politics it seems.
Finally, we welcome back to the program conservative columnist Dr. Brian Joondeph (www.retinacolorado.com), who gives his theory on why the push for mail-in balloting is growing, and how the election will go in November, including references to the 20th amendment, a vote counting debacle, and potential legal battles.
Election fraud and interference actually do happen, especially in the country of Belarus. Defense and aerospace veteran Reuben Johnson (www.thebulwark.com), is back with us from Kiev, Ukraine to examine the blatantly fraudulent election in Belarus and how it affects the area. Will Putin risk another revolution on his border? More importantly, will he invade the country like he did Crimea?
Mr. Johnson details the geopolitics of Eastern Europe, including how NATO would respond should Russia invade another country, what the U.S.'s involvement would be, and how China could benefit from the current chaos in Europe.
