News You Don’t Hear Anywhere Else!

This podcast is exactly what I’ve been looking for, National Security news and stories. There are very few places you can find this kind of news and the host does a great job.

Trending towards opinions

Been a good podcast up until recently where the reporting is going from fact based to opinion based. Let’s stick to facts and not opinions regardless of the blue or red tie in the office.

Good subject matter...Skewed perspective

I won’t be listening anymore. I’ve tried to overlook the obvious disdain frequently expressed by the host toward the current administration. That is just the usual low-level TDS behavior by a Washington elite, media liberal and he doesn’t push it too far.

I just can’t tolerate it while he also continues to have obviously politically-tainted guests on the show like Jim Clapper, John Brennan(?), and Crowdstrike staffers and never challenges their blatant, self-serving political bias and past misbehavior.
