Mark Theissen opens today’s show with his analysis of how the Obama Administration is inviting the next attack. These type of defense cuts will leave America open to another attack that could be more horrific than 9/11. We need to build our budget around our strategy instead of building our strategy around our budget. Boeing will be closing a huge plant in Wichita, Kansas that will put over 2100 people out of work because the president does not feel defense is important to America and our economy. The Obama Administration is willing to release a mass murderer, someone who has committed atrocities against humanity in order to secure peace talks with the Taliban. The Taliban sees America’s willingness to negotiate as a sign of submission and this is emboldening our enemy to become more aggressive and seek greater concessions on the part of the American forces. What is the cost of these defense cuts to our economy and our security?
Supna Zaidi from the Lawfare Project spends time with Frank to explain how her organization is fighting to defend the Constitution and liberty against those who seek to use legal means to censor or diminish liberty. India is using their legal system to force international internet provides, such as Google, to remove any content that is deemed offensive to normal sensibilities. Also, the Turkish government has used legal means to jail critics of Islam and the OIC has advocated the use of legal systems around the world in order to push Sharia onto free societies. Will Islamists in America turn to our courts in order to push their Sharia agenda onto our free society?
Fred Grandy spends two segments with Frank to give his analysis on the Iowa Caucuses as well as what Congress needs to do in order to ensure national security and stave off cataclysmic cuts to defense and our freedoms. Will there be Congressional hearings to help protect Americans? The Obama Administration is willing to release high ranking Taliban leaders from Guantanamo Bay in return for the Taliban to open peace talks with us. Are we submitting to the enemy? Where is Congress in preventing such a disastrous chain of events from occurring?
