EPISODE 192: “National Security Realities: Threats and Solutions” with Brandon Weichert


From the moment President Joe Biden’s administration took office, the world has grown a more dangerous place, and the pace is accelerating.

There’s a long list of national security worries that didn’t used to be of concern to everyday Americans, but now are, or should be.

  • Russia, Ukraine and the prospects of a nuclear war.
  • China’s mounting threat to envelop Taiwan, a world leader and supplier of semiconductors and information technology.
  • Collapsing political stability in the Middle East thanks to the Administration’s blunders that have helped Iran’s quest to obtain nuclear weapons.
  • The mostly unreported Chinese and Russian quest to dominate outer space. The country that controls space controls the world.
  • And, maybe worst of all, the made-in-America war on fossil fuels, which has driven inflation sky high and made us dependent on our enemies for our energy.

Triggered by our disastrous cut and run from Afghanistan last year, the world’s bad actors have been emboldened by America’s weakness.

Like Thema and Louise, Joe Biden seems determined to drive us off a cliff.
