Join us for an important conversation regarding what is happening in the skies above us. Who is floating the balloons? Are they threatening our national security? Are we, as citizens, safe? Our guest, a very respected DC columnist on national security, will provide some much need answers.
It has been proclaimed many times, but perhaps never more convincingly than now when every news cycle seems to deliver further confirmation of a world gone mad. Is this the endgame? Have we come to closing time in the West? Our guest believes the situation is dire. But every crisis we face today, we have faced before. And we can surmount each one. Join us as he discussed “five essential crises” that must be addressed that will help us ultimately save the West.
