    The Pineapple Express: Building an Underground Railroad for Our Afghan Allies | Scott Mann

    The Pineapple Express: Building an Underground Railroad for Our Afghan Allies | Scott Mann

    As Afghanistan fell to the Taliban, it became clear that there was no plan to evacuate our Afghan allies – including Afghan National Army soldiers who trained and fought alongside the U.S. military. Over two decades, these allies had developed strong bonds with countless American veterans, and now they were being hunted by Taliban death squads. Scott Mann was one veteran who began receiving desperate calls for help from his old Afghan friends, and he decided to take action. Working with other veterans and citizens, they called themselves Task Force Pineapple and quickly developed a network of safe passageways for allies and their families. In just three days, they helped over 500 allies escape from Afghanistan. Scott gives us a thrilling inside account of how the operation happened. We also talk about unconventional warfare, experiences with “Village Stability Operations” in Afghanistan, and what the 20-year war ultimately means for America.
    Lieutenant Colonel (retired) Scott Mann is a former US Army Green Beret with tours all over the world including Colombia, Iraq, and multiple tours in Afghanistan. He is the author of “Operation Pineapple Express: The Incredible Story of a Group of Americans Who Undertook One Last Mission and Honored a Promise in Afghanistan.” Follow him on Twitter at @RooftopLeader.

    Media Bias, Election Reform, and the Future of the GOP | Kim Strassel

    Media Bias, Election Reform, and the Future of the GOP | Kim Strassel

    WSJ Editorial Board Member Kim Strassel joins us to look at our mainstream media and electoral systems, why Americans have lost trust in both, and what these institutions must do to earn it back. 
    We cover ranked-choice voting, other elections reforms such as term limits, and the question of whether our electoral systems should be fundamentally altered—or if the remedy is better leadership. 
    We discuss the blurred lines between news and opinion journalism and look at how the traditionally liberal media went totally off the rails with the election of President Trump. 
    And, assuming Republicans win back the majority on Tuesday, we discuss how we should conduct ourselves in the new Congress.
    Kim Strassel is a member of the editorial board for The Wall Street Journal, co-host of Potomac Watch, and author of "Resistance (At All Costs): How Trump Haters Are Breaking America." Follow her on Twitter at @KimStrassel.

As a UAW worker I don’t mind paying my dues. Even with the unions short comings it is still worth it.

Unions

Dan respect you a lot. This conversation you have here is often one I disagree with my fellow Republicans. You honed in on rail, fine, there are many other unions that support there membership well. Not all companies do the right thing with there employees. In the aviation industry study how many times airlines have filed bankruptcy and destroyed employee pay and retirement. Let’s no mention the 50 billion you gave the airlines during COVID. Pretty sure that affected inflation as well. You come off a bit hateful and insolent in regards to the unions. Question for you. If Americans don’t keep with inflation on wages. Are we not losing every year going forward.

Question

I just listened to your Podcast related to Energy options. I did not hear any comment related to Hydrogen. It seems more ‘Green’ than Electric. What do you know about this option and what do you think the future prospects are for Hydrogen. Thanks.
