A special "Thanx" to the Biden Admin, and Anthony Blinking and his 'foreign policy geniuses' for the BILLIONS in funds released to Iran so they can carry on their 'Death to Israel'; Death to America' PEACE efforts.🤮🤖

"Democracy" that is promoted by the likes of Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, AOC, Joe Biden, and the rest of the leftist corrupt, political "celebrities" is NOT something that has your best interest in mind. Their SOLE objectives are 1. Power, and 2. Your money.🤖

FISA was abused. CIA and others are corrupt. Maybe the 'Intel Community's should say ' We're sorry; it won't happen again' (🤞); only 'former CIA' would believe that. I'm all for letting it expire; other than spying on Trump and OTHERS in his circle, how has it helped...hmmm.?🤔 Asking for a friend.🤠

Since when are the DEMOCRATS going to do ANYTHING about border security? Biden OPENED the border with the stroke of his pen; he can CLOSE the border with a stroke of his pen. All you ILLEGALS, don't forget to register to vote to keep the 'free sheet' coming your way.👍👽🤖

Blackwater was a private security company. To compare Blackwater and Wagner is a far stretch. When the Columbian shooting occurred, it was Blackwater Water that came up with Anti-school shootings procedures. Mutiple Police agencies went and trained on Blackwater mount sites to learn how to deal with hostage situations and active shooter situations. Also, Blackwater was one of the major four companies subcontracted by the State Department. Their primary focuse was providing security for government employees, including Civil Services contractors. They weren't ever a private military as Wagner is being used as. Many in the US military did not understand that Blackwater could not fall under the jurisdiction of the DOD. Private security is protected under the Genva Convention, mercs are not. If Blackwater fell under the US military, then it would violate the US agreement of the Genva Convention.

Love the podcast, but the in consistant posting times bothers me. I prepare my podcast list before 6 am, sometimes this podcast posts before 530, sometimes at 530, and other times we'll after 530. Also the inappropriate ad, I could do without. "where's the stage at place you've gotten lucky"

I recently came across this podcast, and since I don't share your conservative views, I thought I would keep an open mind, so I found it very informative. One question though: how come you don't say anything about Trump investigation? Do you think it's appropriate to present only the news that promote your ideas? If you're briefing people on daily news, how come you are not objective? This is not reporting, it's propaganda.

The US Army had the same issues of Lithium Oxide abd Lithium Ion accidental discharge between 1996 to 2007. The early BA 5590s would sometimes have a short and discharge on it's own. If you smell rotten eggs type smell, get put of enclosed areas as quick as possible.

have just listened to your September 6th episode, your position on Ukraine and the role of Europe and the US in it is not only a shame but also a very short vision. You are counting money while others are shedding their blood for your freedom and values. Nobody asks you to go and fight, but eventually you or your children will have to do it one day if you don't stop the evil thinking only about your gas bill. There's much more at stake, think about it or one need another Pearl Harbor to act?

I always found China's history intresting. The Mongols unified and created China but the Han later took over. Xinjiang Batu Khan of the Golden Horde coverted to Islam after his defeat in the Middle East. For decades China has face Al Qaeda attacks due to Chinese authorities abuse against the Muslim population.

Thanks for keeping us informed on the details we don't hear from legacy media. I wish you would do a deep dive on the epidemic of food and egg 'accident'and fires. Starting to look more like a plan against America.
