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.

Interesting…but Unbalanced

Guests/references are by far from the Left, such as recent speaker Craig Unger. Credibility is built on facts and consistently being UN-biased… need sources who are apolitical. Enjoy the topics, but question the sources.

Far Left

JJ....when is the news story on the far left. See you have another one on the Far Right. Still waiting to see one on the people actually bringing terror to the streets. Maybe that does not align with your “unbiased” news.
