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.
Israel just held its fourth election in two years last week and the results appear to be headed toward another stalemate. Author and Middle East expert Avi Lipkin (avilipkin.net) is back with us from Israel to give us the lowdown on how Israel's elections work and where this iteration could be headed. He also analyzes global geopolitics, not only regarding the United States, but also China, Iran, and Russia, and closer to the Middle East – Israel and Hezbollah-controlled Lebanon. He and John discuss the radical changes in policies when U.S. administrations change – something John calls the zig zag wars.
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.
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.
