Guest(s): Lt. Gen. (Ret.) William G. Boykin, J. Michael Waller

Episode 142: The Dictatorship of Woke Capital with Stephen Soukup


For the better part of a century, the Left has been waging a methodical - and largely successful - war to control American institutions. Our universities, K-12 education, the news media, Hollywood, federal government bureaucracies … to name just a few … have all fallen victim to what the Left calls their “long march.” During most of that time American business and the military escape ...

In the last century, communism murdered more than 100 million people, and forced billions in ...


Episode 138: “Thinking Again about the Unthinkable” with Dr. Peter Vincent Pry


This show comes at time that this episode’s guest, Dr. Peter Vincent Pry, calls our “hinge of fate.” Our topic is his riveting paper "Surprise Attack: ICBMs and the Real Nuclear Threat" where he lays bare the world’s current and future nuclear warfare realities. It’s an issue that many simply do not want to think about. As Peter puts it, “when it comes to nuclear weapons, U.S. ...
