8/8/18 Ted Galen Carpenter on Venezuela and Russia

Cato Institute Senior Fellow Ted Galen Carpenter joins Scott to talk Venezuela, Russia, and the United States’ penchant for supporting brutal regimes. Though government officials like to talk a big game when it comes to freedom and democracy, they mostly only support those things when it’s in their political interest—otherwise they’re perfectly happy to put up with tyranny and hope Americans don’t notice. Carpenter fears that the growing turmoil in Venezuela may be yet another opportunity for military intervention by an American president.

Discussed on the show:

Ted Galen Carpenter is a senior fellow for defense and foreign policy studies at the Cato Institute. Carpenter has written 10 books including “America’s Coming War with China: A Collision Course over Taiwan” and is a contributing editor at The American Conservative Magazine and the National Interest.

8/08/18 Brian McGlinchey on Lawsuit Against Saudi Arabia and 9/11 Incompetence

Brian McGlinchey talks about his exclusive interview with retired FBI agent Ken Williams, the author of the ignored “Phoenix Memo” that may have prevented 9/11 had it not been ignored, regarding the 9/11 victims civil lawsuit against Saudi Arabia. “Kenneth Williams was told by the FBI’s Office of the General Counsel not to cooperate with attorneys representing 9/11 victims in their suit against the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia because it could harm US – Saudi relations.” William was later told the Trump White Houses’s pursuit of warm relations with kingdom comes first.

8/1/18 Arnold Isaacs on Fake Islamophobia in America

Arnold Isaacs talks “Islamophobia”, and whether the alarmists who claim Muslim operatives are scheming to take over the country have legitimate cause for concern. He explains that most of this talk is nothing more than conspiracy, and that Muslim activists generally conduct their advocacy in the open. Not to mention that for the most part they are strong proponents of personal freedoms—in fact, the real extremists know better than to agitate for Sharia Law, because that could out them as such. So why is so-called “Islamophobia” (a dubious term) so widespread?
