Fred Grandy, Pete Hoekstra, Janice Kephart, and Bill Gertz

October 12th, 2012 ·

FRED GRANDY joins Frank today to talk about the Vice Presidential debate, Biden’s explanation of the Benghazi consulate attack, our apparent declaration of defeat in Afghanistan, and the possible criminalization of blasphemy against Islam and it’s threat to our fundamental right to free speech.

Former Michigan Congressman and Senatorial candidate PETER HOEKSTRA stops by today to talk about Sequestration and its potentially devastating economic effects.  He also gives his thoughts on the Benghazi consulate attack as well as growing threats to Israel’s security by Islamist militant groups.

JANICE KEPHART lends her expertise regarding the current state of US Customs and Boarder Protection, including the recent friendly fire being investigated in the death of a CBP agent. Have the current administration’s policies on the border, as well as initiatives such as the Dream Act contributed to these incidents?

BILL GERTZ helps fill in the gaps on the Benghazi timeline, discussing the administration’s deflection of responsibility to the intelligence community. Bill then discusses the House Intelligence Community report on Chinese telecomm giants Huawei and ZTE. Chinese companies with ties to the PLA threaten US national security and may be part of a greater Chinese strategy of “Unrestricted Warfare”

Roger Noriega, Rand Paul, Janice Kephart, Nonie Darwish

April 19th, 2012 ·

ROGER NORIEGA

  • Roger Noriega, former U.S. ambassador to the Organization of American States, talks about President Obama’s participation at the Summit of the Americas where the decriminalization of drugs and the possibility of including Cuba in the next Summit were at issue.  Did the U.S. lead in setting the priorities for this Hemispheric agenda?
  • Noriega also addresses the importance of supporting the Mexican Government in the drugs war lead by The Zetas and the coming Presidential elections in Mexico.

SENATOR RAND PAUL

  • Kentucky Senator Rand Paul sheds light on halting aid to Egypt. Egypt arrested pro-democracy workers and prosecuted them in December, 2011. The United States paid around $4 million for their release. Egypt received aid from the U.S. then immediately demanded that Interpol extradite the aid workers back to Egypt for their prosecution.
  • Senator Paul shares his thoughts on the Law of the Sea Treaty, and explains how our soldiers and sailors could be vulnerable to the jurisdiction of a foreign body.

Janice Kephart

  • Janice Kephart, Director of National Security Policy for the Center for Immigration Studies, addresses Massachusetts’s lack of commitment on following the REAL ID Act by not checking legal status on drivers’ license requests.
  • What will the implications be of the Obama administration’s order to remove U.S military forces from the Mexican border?

NONI DARWISH

  • The director of Former Muslims United discusses her new book “The Devil You Don’t Know.” Learn why the problems Middle Eastern regimes like Egypt’s are much deeper than just ridding the countries of their tyrannical dictators.
  • Egypt’s hope of democracy will be crushed if the Muslim Brotherhood comes to power. The Muslim Brotherhood is not the secular organization they portray, yet the U.S. has sent them $1.5 billion in aid. Is the current administration supporting the Muslim Brotherhood at the expense of establishing democracy in Egypt?

Peter Pham, Janice Kephart, Robert McDowell, Roger Noriega

February 23rd, 2012 ·

Peter Pham analyzes the situation in Somalia with regards to the presence of African Union troops in Mogadishu, and the professional turnaround of fighting a counter insurgency.  Will Somalia overcome Al-Shabab with assistance from the African Union troops or should the U.S. and NATO play an active role in the region? Pham touches on the issue of Boko Haram in Nigeria and their alliance with Al-Qaeda and Al-Shabab to over throw the government and create a Christian free zone in the north. Will we start to see a persecution of Christians in Nigeria?

The REAL ID Act was passed in 2005 as a result of the 9/11 Commission’s recommendations to prevent criminals and terrorists easy access to driver’s license and IDs which would conceal their identities. Janice Kephart sheds light on the REAL ID Act and why it has been difficult to implement. The Department of Homeland Security is taking no responsibility or part in the REAL ID Act and the states are receiving no guidance from DHS; should they be involved and fund states to help them implement this program effectively? Janice also talks about the pilot program between West Virginia and a private company, TechSack, which offers an extra incentive to the states to implement the REAL ID Act.

Robert McDowell, the commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission, explains that the United Nations is set to discuss internet governance in Geneva on Feb. 27, which could lead to an increased regulation of the internet by the International Telecommunications Union (created to regulate and facilitate international communication). McDowell holds that this would be a dangerous step toward censorship and cautions that it could inhibit web innovation. Shouldn’t it worry us that countries such as China and Russia are leading the charge for tougher internet regulations?

Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez has a strong weapon in his tough 2012 re-election campaign against a united opposition lead by Henrique Capriles: a multibillion dollar oil-for-credit deal with China. Chávez’s deal lets China secure oil supplies for its fast-growing economy and gives President Chávez a source of funds that he can use to fund politically popular programs and one that is free from omission; right in time when he is facing a strong opponent that threatens to end his dictatorship. Roger Noriega joins us today to provide clear analysis on the direction the Venezuelan government is taking and how dangerous this coalition between China and Venezuela is for the global democracy.
