Episode 67: Endless War

This episode has been a long time coming. I have had a draft waiting for more than two years, but the events in Kabul this month convinced me that now was the time to talk about America’s forever wars.

Our loss in Afghanistan in the summer of 2021 marks the end of the longest military engagement in American history. What did we gain in the mountains of the Hindu Kush? Why did we think we could succeed where Britain and Russia both failed spectacularly? Why do our leaders insist on indefinite military deployments throughout the entire world?

Errata:

In the podcast I mention a British “tactical defeat” in the Third Anglo-Afghan War. This is in error; the British won the war. However, they nevertheless withdrew from Afghanistan afterward. The humiliating and surprising defeat came in the First Anglo-Afghan War in 1842.

I mention that the monarchy falls to a Communist coup in 1978. This is also in error. A military coup overthrew the monarchy in 1973, which was itself overthrown in 1978.

The famous picture of a helicopter evacuating people from a roof in Saigon was from a CIA safe house in the city, not the US embassy.

H.R. McMaster was President Trump’s National Security Advisor, not Secretary of Homeland Security.

Finally, the most unforgivable error is that Dan McKnight of bringourtroopshome.us is a Marine Corps veteran, not Army.

Livestream 17: What Happened to Afghanistan?

In this Saturday morning livestream I talk about the impending fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban, and what that means for America going forward. I discuss the history of United States in war, especially in Vietnam, and I look at what our withdrawal portends for us and for the world.

Episode 66: Cuba

As protests erupt this month in Cuba, many Americans are wondering how we should respond. Should we intervene, oust the Communists, and restore democratic rule? Or should we leave them alone? How should the America First movement deal with Communist Cuba?

Episode 65: Dispossession

Nearly two hundred and fifty years ago, the Founding Fathers of the United States created a Constitution to protect the hard-won freedoms for themselves and their posterity. Today, that posterity finds themselves being pushed out of the country their forefathers bequeathed to them. What can we do to reclaim and protect our homeland?

Episode 64: It’s For Your Own Good

America is supposed to be a republic, ruled by the people. But our elected leaders and cultural elites look for ways to push us toward the choices they think best. How can we reclaim our sovereignty in this totalitarian age?

Episode 63: Never Let a Crisis Go to Waste

Not only do would-be dictators take advantage of social crises; they often create the very problems that their dictatorships aim to solve. The Democratic Party is using crisis after crisis to increase their power, but things are about to spiral out of control.

Episode 60: Nixon and Trump

The same media that tells us that Donald Trump is a fascist told us that Richard Nixon was a crook. Yet that media had a vested interest in seeing both men destroyed. What happened to Richard Nixon, and how can it help explain what happened to Donald Trump?

Note: Twice in the podcast I say that Joe Biden has been in power for “three months”. While it feels like it has been that long, it has actually been slightly longer than two months since the inauguration. We regret the error.

Episode 59: The Failure of Conservatism

The lesson of the Trump Era is that one man cannot save this country, not after the globalist left has completely taken over every institution. But where was the conservative movement when that takeover occurred? Why did they not stop the long march through our society? It is because they were operating from the same premise as the left, and thus failed to save our country.
