It’s February 2nd. You’re listening to the President’s Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ A good day to you, ladies and gentlemen. I’ve got three big briefs for you this morning that are shaping America — and the world. First, Joe Biden’s beach house was searched yesterday by the FBI. But there’s another place they should be taking a look at. I’ll tell you all about it. Second, the Biden Administration launched a second front / in a new war. This one’s against gas stoves. I’ll explain the latest. Third, a special brief for you today. It’s one that the CIA sometimes gives to the President called an Executive Brief. It’s a deep dive into a person or concern of great interest. Today, it’s about a new Middle Eastern leader named Saddam. But not in Baghdad. This one’s in Libya. Later, we close out the podcast with an observation I had on the immigration crisis in New York City. It’s an opinion, but not mine. It’s from a / legal immigrant. And his words moved me. I think they’ll move you too.  ----- Please remember to subscribe if you enjoyed this episode of the President's Daily Brief. Email: PDB@TheFirstTV.com Learn more about your ad choices.

First, the city of Grand Forks, North Dakota has decided to cancel that Chinese mill that was going to be built in their city, just 16 miles from a key air force base. I’ll tell you why. Second, an update on attempts to save the Colorado River out west. States who use that water tried to come up with a negotiated deal to share the river’s resources but they failed. I’ll explain what comes next. Third, some bad news for countries looking to build factories to make their own solar panels. China just banned the export of some key equipment. Finally, an update on Cold War II. America got a couple countries to stop selling China some computer chip technology that could be used to advance Beijing’s military ambitions.  Later, we close out the podcast with a listener question about Joe Biden sending in tanks and possibly fighter jets to Ukraine. My response involves some old advice from a guy named Dirty Harry. ----- Please remember to subscribe if you enjoyed this episode of the President's Daily Brief.

I’ve got two big briefs for you this morning that are shaping America — and the world. First, there is a fight tomorrow at the White House, with Republicans squaring off against Joe Biden over the debt ceiling. I’ll give you a brief to help you sort through the arguments you’re going to hear — and decide who’s right. Second, get those maps and passports ready because we’re launching a new segment today called Cold War TWO. And that series is going to be focused on the global fight between China and the United States, much as there was a fight between America and the Soviet Union in decades gone by. So for today’s first episode, we’re going to travel around the world to check in on who has more friends, us or Beijing. Plus, we’ll remind ourselves of why we should care about this global competition. Later, we close out the podcast with a study on human nature — something pretty important in global affairs, actually. We look specifically at when kids can first tell that adults are telling them a fib or giving them a lame excuse. ----- Please remember to subscribe if you enjoyed this episode of the President's Daily Brief.

It’s January 27th. You’re listening to the President’s Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ Today is our Special Brief about how Bryan is Wrong. It was an opportunity for you all to write in, tell me about how I was wrong about something, and offer up your view of what’s right. The first three topics this morning are on domestic affairs. First, we talk immigration — a fellow named Rowdy from Texas says I shouldn’t say the word migrant when discussing this issue and instead say immigrant. I’ll talk about the difference. Next, the Biden Intel Scandal. Rachel in South Carolina said it’s clear I have a bias for Donald Trump, because I’m giving him a pass about his intel scandal. So I’ll respond by telling you all a story I haven’t told anyone — Trump actually invited me to the White House in the summer of 2020. I’ll explain why, and how that actually connects to the Trump intel scandal. Third, Chris in Bloomington Illinois pointed out the fact that I don’t say President when describing Joe Biden. I only call him Mr. Biden. Why is that, Chris and others have wondered? I’ll explain. Then we shift gears to International Affairs. A listener named Sebastian says all I do is talk about Ukraine. Enough already. Well, Sebastian, I’ll share why it’s so important. ----- Please remember to subscribe if you enjoyed this episode of the President's Daily Brief.

Third, the country of Norway just announced a major commitment to oil and gas exploration.

The Russians are there, up to some sort of funny business. We’ll talk about it. Third, an update on America’s border wars. But this one has nothing to do with illegal drugs or illegal migrants. No, this one has to do with illegal eggs. Finally, a listener question about the Joe Biden Intel Scandal. Some experts are saying that Mr. Biden could have declassified some of those Top Secret documents sitting in his garage and library. I’ll explain why the answer to that is no, he did not have that authority. Later, we close out the podcast with the announcement of a new segment. I’m calling it — Bryan is Wrong.

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.
