John Bolton, Fred Fleitz, Ryan Mauro, Elaine Donnelly

June 13th, 2013 ·

JOHN BOLTON, former Ambassador and Senior Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, talks about the appointment of Samantha Power to UN Ambassador and the problems this will have on America and its' foreign policy.  He also touches on other issues of importance to national security; including NSA data collection and President Obama’s upcoming trip to Germany to discuss  further “De-Nuclearization” of the US.

FRED FLEITZ of LIGNET.com gives his analysis on the NSA leaks, and argues that much of the backlash comes from an American public that is already on edge with the Obama administration thanks to the many other recent scandals.

ELAINE DONNELLY, founder and president of the Center for Military Readiness, talks about sexual assaults in the military. She specifically examines the rising prevalence of sexual assaults that occur between men.

RYAN MAURO, of Clarion Project.org, looks at the results of a recent Pew poll conducted in Egypt that show there is still growing support for Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood in the country, despite the setbacks the group has had in the recent past.

With Amb. John Bolton, Harold Rhode, Ryan Mauro, Bill Gertz

During the U.S. President's tour of the Middle East, many have been surprised at how his rhetorical performance has hit the right notes.  The surprise is due to prior absence of policy and strategy to back up strong words for Iran and kind words for Israel.  Former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. JOHN BOLTON of the American Enterprise Institute discusses the consequential realities that remain for heads of state after the televised events.

Gatestone Institute Senior Fellow and former Department of Defense Middle East expert, HAROLD RHODE, walks through the complexities in Israel as well as those playing out in Syria and the broader Middle East in relationship to Turkey, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and to U.S. policy.

Global threat expert RYAN MAURO of the Clarion Project uncovers another failure of vetting by the State Department this time in respect to the newly appointed Prime Minister of the Syrian opposition.  He also reports on the activities of Hezbollah in Syria and their long term strategic objectives, EU hesitation to designate Hezbollah as a terrorist organization, and the formation of religious enforcement militias in Egypt.

Washington Free Beacon Editor, BILL GERTZ, reports on the administration's down playing of Russian strategic nuclear bombers increasing flights near the U.S. and its allies unchallenged.  The administration has simultaneously completely canceled the SM3 Interceptor missile defense capability in Europe which is also a concession to Russian wishes.  This took place last week as the headlines reported a seeming reversal in the administrations actions to diminish American missile defense while claiming strategic enhancement.  The strategic enhancement was perhaps meant to be interpreted as better relations with Russia.  Such an interpretation would be shown nullified by these aggressive nuclear bomber flights unprecedented since the end of the Cold War.

Roger Noriega, Trevor Loudon, John Bolton

July 21st, 2011 ·

In recent years, liberal media and advocacy groups have failed to recognize the truth in the Israeli-Pakistani conflict: Israel has a right to exist in the region. Frank tells us about of his experiences at the 6th annual Christians United for Israel convention where he and 1,500 attendees examined the role that non-Jews have played in the survival of Israel and what it means for United States national security. Then, visiting fellow at AEI, Roger Noriega gives us his insight on Hugo Chavez’s fifty percent chance of surviving the next 18 months and the opposition factions that will form after his eventual death. He believes that the democrats within the country will need to move quickly to fill the vacuum with positive energy for the future. Next, Trevor Loudon in his new book, Barack Obama and the Enemies Within, discusses how the 5th column movements in the United States are undermining our military defense. Additionally, he examines the close ties that Obama’s allies and former mentors have to far leftist, Communist groups. Lastly, Former Ambassador to the UN, John Bolton joins Frank to voice his concerns over the threat of the Palestinians advocating for official statehood in front of the UN General Assembly. If the General Assembly recognizes their statehood, he says, the US should cut off all funding to the UN. He then gives his recommendations for isolating monetary waste within our government.
