February 11th, 2013 ·

LT. GEN. JERRY BOYKIN, former US Deputy Undersecretary of  Defense for Intelligence, explains why he doesn't support Chuck Hagel and John Brennan's nominations. Hagel does not take a firm enough line on Iran, and Brennan fails to understand that fundamentalist ideology is what motivates terrorists. Boykin also forecasts the "hollowing out" of the military from sequestration, and talks about the death of the American ethos that no soldier, dead or alive, is left behind.

From the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, SEBASTIAN GORKA critiques the lack of understanding that we have about the ideology that drives our enemies in the war on terror, and references the Cold War ideological battle as a frame work for how to win a war of ideas.

ADAM KREDO, a senior writer for the Washington Free Beacon, explains how sequestration will "hollow out the military," and illuminates the reasons why the vote on Hagel's nomination was delayed.

From forbes.com, GORDON CHANG takes a tour through Asia explaining how the weakening Chinese economy and disarray in the political system is creating a formula for war, how many countries in Asia are devaluing their currencies, and how Chinese cyber-warfare is costing America millions every year.

With Adam Kredo, Suzanne Scholte, Cliff Kincaid, and John Yoo.

Senior writer from the Washington Free Beacon, ADAM KREDO, critiques Chuck Hagel's incompetent Senate performance, and reports on Hagel's refusal to produce financial documents for over 200 past speeches. Kredo also predicts that John Brennan will be severely questioned regarding the recently leaked memo on drone warfare.

SUZANNE SCHOLTE, the president of the Defense Forum Foundation, reports that the North Korea regime is preparing for its own demise as regime leaders scramble for cash and build reservoirs to flood illegal prisoner of war camps.

Director of the Accuracy in Media Center for Investigative Journalism, CLIFF KINCAID, exposes the truth behind the blatantly illegal purchase of Current TV by Al Jazeera, a news source owned by a state that sponsors terrorism, and tells what is being done to stop this illegal transaction.

JOHN YOO, law professor at UC Berkley, illuminates the recently leaked memo concerning the ethics behind drone killings, and discusses the difference between due process laws that apply to citizens at home and the rules of war. He connects this difference back to how the Obama administration prefers drone strike killings to capturing and interrogating terrorists in order to avoid the Guantanamo Bay issues that arise.

January 29th, 2013 ·

ADAM KREDO, senior writer for the Washington Free Beacon, warns of the national security consequences of a Hagel nomination, referencing Hagel's close ties with Iranian interest groups and his desires to pare down the Pentagon, leaving America with a "hollow force" to face up and coming Islamist regimes.

GAL LUFT, author of Petropoly: The Collapse of America's Energy Security Paradigm, knows how to solve the American energy dependence problem. In this exclusive interview, he explains how one simple piece of legislation could cripple OPEC and remove American reliance on foreign oil.

KORI SCHAKE, research fellow at the Hoover Institution, explains that the Obama doctrine will lead to fewer states being willing to step forward to solve problems when they learn how America has treated her allies based on aid given to France in Mali and the hasty withdrawal in Afghanistan.

ANDY McCARTHY, senior fellow at the National Review Institute, asks why we sending F-16s and tanks to an anti-Semitic and anti-Christian Egyptian regime that is cozying up to Iran, one of America's biggest threats.

Fred Grandy, Adam Kredo, Reza Kahlili, and Bill Gertz

January 25th, 2013 ·

FRED GRANDY of the Center for Security Policy, deconstructs the recent Benghazi hearing and criticizes the Senate Republicans for coming ill-prepared. Fred and Frank agree that Clinton's "what difference does it make" comment was almost certainly planned, and Republicans should have expected such an outburst.

The Washington Free Beacon's ADAM KREDO questions how anyone could believe the claims Secretary of Defense nominee Chuck Hagel is making now about his supposed beliefs. After all, Kredo points out, Hagel suddenly "apparently holds none of the positions he's held for the past twenty-plus years". Kredo and Frank also discuss Obama's continued insistence in sending arms to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, even though the agreement was made with a government that no longer exists.

REZA KAHLILI, a former CIA agent within the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, describes to Frank an inside source's account of a recent covert operation directed against Iran--an attack on its nuclear facility in Fordow. According to Kahlili, certain Western countries and Israel are most likely behind the mission, since there have been strong rumors as of late that they were preparing for such an operation. Kahlili predicts that Iran, having gathered the same information itself, is likely to strike back at Israel through Hezbollah. The fact that Iran has mastered multiple chemical agents, including smallpox and anthrax, makes its likely attempt at retaliation all the more concerning.

BILL GERTZ, columnist at The Washington Times, takes a look at the decision made Wednesday to allow women into positions of direct combat within the military. This attempt at social engineering is problematic, he insists, because the United States military's purpose is not one of job creation or equal opportunity workplaces--it is about fighting wars, and winning. Gertz also discusses newly uncovered evidence that points to China creating a rail system for the ICBM's, with which it will be able to both transport and launch it's missiles.

Lignet.com's FRED FLEITZ analyzes what the purpose of North Korea's recent satellite launch was, and how the U.S. has unintentionally given Syria a limit of violence within which they can freely operate.

October 22nd, 2012 ·

Former CIA Officer and Center for Security Policy Fellow CLARE LOPEZ stops by the show today to talk about the Benghazi attack, Libyan rebels, the Syrian Civil War, and Iran.  Are we really funding and arming rebel factions with connections to the Islamist ideology and organizations like Al-Qaeda? Will we really engage in negotiations with Iran over their nuclear program?

ADAM KREDO of the Washington Free Beacon talks to Frank today about “Benghazigate” and the apparent attempt to deny us information about what happened on September 11, 2012 in Benghazi, Libya.  Are we inadvertently giving weapons and support to Libyan rebel groups with connections to radical Islamist groups? Kredo also talks about the Department of Energy and its apparent inability to provide adequate security to critical installations, namely those installations housing our nuclear weapons.  Kredo also discusses the sanctions on Iran and their effectiveness.

Was the 2008 economic collapse caused by enemies of the United States? Center for Security Policy Senior Fellow KEVIN FREEMAN stops by the show today to talk to Frank about Economic warfare and financial terrorism.  He talks about a 1999 Chinese book by two PLA Colonels entitled “Unrestricted Warfare” and how it may have inspired enemies of the United States to wage economic warfare on us.

How will China play in tonight’s foreign policy debate?  GORDON CHANG give a depth of background that can’t be found elsewhere.  Another cancellation of Japanese and American joint naval exercises, for example, may signal to China that the U.S. is serious about defending Japanese sovereignty.

Chris Holton, Richard Thompson, Adam Kredo, Fred Fleitz

October 11th, 2012 ·

Center for Security Policy’s CHRIS HOLTON joins Frank to discuss the controversial issue of hydraulic fracking and it’s upcoming starring role in Matt Damon’s new film. They also discussed the history of fracking and how oil producing countries are opposed to it because it hurts the value of their petrol-dollars. Finally, Chris Holton talked about the bank HSBC and its Sharia finance practices in the Middle East

RICHARD THOMPSON, President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Law Center, stops by the show today to talk about General Martin Dempsey’s excoriation of Lt. Col. Matthew Dooley’s apparently “offensive” classes on Islam at the Joint Forces Staff College at the National Defense University.  Mr. Thompson is representing Lt. Col. Dooley.

ADAM KREDO of the Washington Free Beacon analyzes the Obama administration’s repeated assertion that Al Qaeda is a “thing of the past.” Kredo argues that Al Qaeda as we know it is certainly weakened, but its ideology remains as strong as ever and is currently popping up in different groups under new names. Kredo also talks about the furor that has arisen over the U.S. government’s choice to be represented at a human rights forum in Poland by MPAC executive director Salam Al Marayati, a man who considers Israel to be a suspect for 9/11.

FRED FLEITZ, executive editor of LIGNET, talks about Wednesday’s Congressional hearing on the September 11th attack in Libya. Testimony that embassy staff was aware of the deteriorating situation and repeatedly asked for additional resources, as well as comments from a State Department press conference on Tuesday, served to completely discredit the Obama administration’s original claim that the attack was due to radicals hijacking a protest.
