China poses an existential threat to America, warns a veteran intelligence officer, and the window for an effective response is closing fast. Our guest, a former reserve head of intelligence for Marine Forces Pacific, delivers a blow-by-blow account of how the threat has developed, from the growing skill and belligerence of the Chinese military to gray-zone campaigns to hollow out America’s will to resist. These efforts have now reached fruition. You can see the war damage in Baltimore, Erie, Buffalo, and countless other communities across the United States. So far, China has been waging a mostly covert war on the United States and its allies. But, emboldened by American weakness and perceived decline, the war could soon explode into the open. The flashpoint will be Taiwan—but the war will extend over the entire Pacific Theater and beyond. The results will be devastating. America risks a humiliating retreat, with almost unimaginable costs to our economy and security. Will America fight back before the cold war that Communist China is waging against America and its allies goes hot?
Traumatic experiences happen to nearly everyone, at some time, in some form. The aftereffects--depression, anxiety, addiction, panic attacks, insomnia, and more--can affect us for years or even a lifetime. But the brokenness following a traumatic event is never a life sentence. We are all changed by trauma, but we do not have to be defined by it.
Drawing on cutting-edge research, our guest will help empower you to find relief and hope once and for all. Rather than offering a one-size-fits-all solution, this whole-person treatment approach recognizes you as a unique constellation of emotional, physical, intellectual, relational, and spiritual dimensions. Learn how trauma affects your emotions, body, brain, relationships, soul, and dreams while you create a personalized plan to find your way back to wholeness, joy, and peace.
