Loved one of the recent episodes with author Kayleen Reusser sharing veterans stories. These brave soldiers sacrificed so much for us and are the ultimate patriots. Great message!
Girdusky is a clown
Like Jim Banks a lot. What planet does Girdusky live on? Trump would lose in 2024 against the bozos in the White House now? Mike Pence would have a good chance if he ran? The base hates him. He likes leftist Bloomberg News? Come on Congressman, have someone on who has a finger on the base of the Republican Party not someone who wants it to be.
Informative, educational interviews
I’ve learned much about our country’s politics from this podcast. Speakers vary from local to his district to those from around the US. I’m glad he’s sticking up for conservative values & others who believe the same.
