Professor PAUL KENGOR of Grove City College joins Frank today to discuss the current turmoil in the Middle East. Kengor argues that “all Hell has broken” loose in the Middle East. The hardcore Islamist Extremists behind the chaos pose a dire threat to U.S. interests in the region and to the security and well-being of the American people. Kengor argues that President Obama’s weak policies toward our enemies in the Middle East eerily reflect Jimmy Carter’s weak stand against the Soviet Union and Islamists who took over Iran in 1979.
CLAUDIA ROSETT talks about what the UN, Rice and Benghazi have in common. Rosett argues that the Obama administration is taking a weak UN-style approach to the Benghazi Consulate attack – that is, refusing to “own” the situation and take charge.

What is the legacy of the late President Ronald Reagan? Paul Kengor explains how the life and policies of this great American leader has helped to shape 20th century and even 21st century America. This was a man who understood the threats that America faced and he knew what needed to be done to combat those threats. Ronald Regan was always ready to stand against the enemy in order to preserve freedom and democracy.
The president has expressed, on different occasions, his belief that the Constitution is a deficient document. He has also indicated that a primary goal of his administration is to change the way things are done in the United States in order to balance the principles on which he believes the nation was founded. Rep. Gohmert joins Frank today to share his opinion about Obama’s effort to change the Constitution and whether or not the president is trying to get the principles of the Founding Fathers back or trying to impose his own principles.
Vice President of Unmanned Systems for Qinetiq, Ed Godere, explains how the Dragon Runner family of unmanned systems is helping to improve survivability of our dismounted troops. This lightweight robot helps to detect IEDs as well as enemy positions which is allows troops to stay in a secure position while this robot enters houses or travels over roads that may hide IEDs.
What is Mitt Romney’s attitude towards Sharia? Does he understand this threat of is this just political rhetoric? Andy McCarthy provides his analysis pertaining to how Romney’s own religion might be affecting his stance towards the stealth jihad and his willingness to combat such a threat.

From the recent hackings of Google e-mails to the infiltration of defense contractors, the Chinese have essentially declared cyber war on the United States. Not only are they openly and actively stealing trade secrets, but they are also hacking into our intelligence computers. It is about time that we recognize their declaration of war and finally deal with this problem posed by China’s high tech mafia, says Congressman Ted Poe of Texas’s 2nd district. Congressman Poe, who wrote an article in the Washington Times on this subject, is one of the first to openly suggest that the Chinese government backs these Mafioso-like crimes such as the intelligence hackings and counterfeiting of American products. These “thieves of American products,” as Poe describes the Chinese, are proactively making a profit out of counterfeiting our commodities at the expense of the US manufacturing industry. Additionally, Congressman Poe examines with Frank the “backdoor amnesty” policy of the Obama administration that is allowing 300,000 convicted illegal immigrants to walk free. This policy is an apparent disregard of the laws of the land put forth by the Legislative Brank of the United States government.
Next, Executive Director of the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International, Michael Toscano joins Secure Freedom Radio to give us his insight on the air, ground, and maritime unmanned systems being implemented in military warfare. According to Toscano, the unmanned system that flies, drives, and navigates makes up only thirty percent of the enitre system. The other seventy percent is comprised of collection and processing data centers. While many people believe these systems are in themselves more effective and efficient than human operators, Toscano argues that these robotic machines are merely an extension of the eyes, hands, and ears of humans. They allow the operators to stand off at a distance for a longer period of time than they would if they were in the environment themselves. He also explores the commercial processing applications of these unmanned systems.
In the third segment, Professor of Political Science at Grover City College, Paul Kengor surveys the domestic spending problem in the US that has duped many political leaders into thinking defense should be cut. In a recent graph displaced by Kengor that shows federal spending from 1789 until 2016, the federal government did not decrease overall domestic spending from 1960 until 2006. The government did, however, greatly downsize the military budget, which left us unable to fulfill Reagan’s policy of peace through strength. Furthermore, Kengor argues that in today’s world we must have the capability to commit to two wars at one time.
Founder and President of the American Islamic Forum on Democracy, Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, concludes today’s show discussing the lack of true representation that Muslim Americans have in today’s US politics. He states that while only thirty percent of Muslims in America are affiliated with any group, one-half of those affiliated are aligned with Muslim Brotherhood front groups such as CAIR. Additionally, he urges those Muslims who came to this country to escape Islamist extremists need to be awakened and identify with more moderate groups.

Sources inside Lebanon informed former CIA case officer, Kent Clizbe, that the recent candidate for the House of Delegates in Virginia, David Ramadan has personal ties to the Lebanese and Syrian intelligence services. When Clizbe arranged to meet with Ramadan for background information, he refused to answer any questions and acted suspiciously. Kent Clizbe further explains the need for asset validation, or vetting political candidates to make sure they are who they say they are and can do what they say they can do.
New York Times bestselling author, Mark Steyn joins Secure Freedom Radio to give listeners an insight into his new book, After America: Get Ready for Armageddon. In After America, Steyn discusses how America has been in economic decline since the 1950s. If the leaders of the United States do not fix the problem by 2015, we are doomed to total decline. Furthermore, he argues that the two centuries Western dominance in the world will be replaced by the dominance of totalitarian regimes and religious Caliphates. The peace and prosperity in which the United States has become accustomed, says Steyn, is not due to Mother Nature, but rather due to international conditions.
Next, Paul Kengor talks with Frank about the lessons we can learn from the Reagan presidency in order to solve the current economic crisis. From the Reagan perspective, the United States cannot afford to give up its economic and military strengths. It is this defense strength and military spending that helped collapse the Soviet Union. According to Kengor, the basic problem of the United States is a spending problem in general, not just in the military. Moreover, he argues that the economy can only grow if we stimulate the private, not public sector.
Secure Freedom Radio’s resident “boots on the ground” expert, Jim Hanson, concludes today’s show with his remarks on the tragic helicopter crash that killed 30 American soldiers. While he refutes claims that Obama or Biden had a part in the crash, he condemns the administration’s misuse of troops for any political reasons.
