As the pandemic, the 2020 election and Black Lives Matter protests dominate new headlines, America’s national security is more vulnerable than at any other time in recent memory. Our military has been weakened, our troops have been politicized, our people are sick, our country is divided, and our enemies are celebrating. Everyone is talking about the upcoming election. Few are talking about how to protect it from the Russians. Or how to deal with a multitude of other national security threats that face our country at this fragile time. But Paul Rieckhoff (@PaulRieckhoff) is focused on it. And the independent activist, Army veteran and national security analyst is joined by retired Army Three-Star General Mark Hertling (@MarkHertling) [53:32] for an important and inspiring conversation that you need to hear. General Hertling served almost four decades in the US Army where he commanded US Army Europe and Seventh Army, led over forty thousand soldiers, cared for over one hundred thousand family members, and partnered with the armies of fifty countries in the European theater. Hertling is a military analyst for CNN, was appointed by President Obama to the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports, and Nutrition, and is a senior vice president at Florida Hospital. Hertling is one the most dynamic military experts in the media and a highly-sought after expert on leadership, national security and health. He breaks down the threats facing America, analyzes the leadership of President Trump and newly nominated VP candidate and Senator Kamala Harris, and shares key insights about how to lead in tough times like this–whether you’re leading a large company or your own family. It’s another important and inspiring episode of Angry Americans—the best weekly podcast in America for independent politics, news and culture.
