“If you don’t win the air battle, then don’t get into the war,” remarks Dan Goure of the Lexington Institute. He joins Secure Freedom Radio to discuss the effects that the proposed defense cuts will have on America’s military interests abroad.  He warns that if our military lacks the necessary funds for forward deployment, then we will be at risk for losing our economic and technological advantages over those in the international community who do not have our best interests in mind. It is his belief that additional defense cuts will result in a hollow military and increased threats to American lives.

Next, American novelist and freelance writer, Claire Berlinski joins Frank from her home in Istanbul to talk about the unprecedented resignation of the Chief of the General Staff in Turkey in protest of the coup plotting charges presented against his fellow members in uniform. She gives us her slant on the Western press’s portrayal of the situation happening. The key question is not whether these resignations are good or bad for Turkish democracy, she says, but rather who is now in charge of running the 2nd largest army in NATO.  Furthermore, she gives us the big picture of the Mafioso-like society that runs through the veins of Turkish leadership.

Peter Huessy, President of GeoStrategic Analysis, presents Frank with his suggestions for fixing the budget crisis, as well as voices his concerns that about the impact that cuts will have for the US over the next ten years. He urges Congress to choose between the Tea Party’s Ryan’s Budget Plan and the increase in taxes suggested by Democrats in order to provide the American economy with a long-term fix . Additionally, he explains how the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) will cede important American resources to countries that do not have our best interests in mind.

Finally, Contributing Editor for the National Review Online and weekly guest with Secure Freedom Radio, Andy McCarthy examines what he considers the “sad state of affairs” happening around the budget deal, as well as the federal government’s role in this deal. He also defends prominent voice against Shariah in the United States, David Yerushalmi against the allegations put forth by a recent New York Times article.
