200. Ayman Mohyeldin. Revolutions in Georgia and the Middle East: Which One Has More Radical Extremists? World Cup Euphoria and Controversy. Warnock Beats Walker. Dems Switch Up The Primaries. The Rise of Perspective Media. America Will Help.


Tis the season, to remember all the people on the front lines this holiday. When so many are celebrating. So many are standing guard. The French remember that. It’s why 80 years later, when French president Macron comes to the US for a state visit; he meets with and thanks American veterans who were part of the greatest generation that liberated France. The Ukrainians know that now. Help will come. From America, help will come. 

America is about remembering that helping others is required. And that helping is contagious. Even when America needs help ourselves. The spirit of America—and the spirit of not being the world’s police, but being a helper, being a global citizen, being a good neighbor. We must continue to set the example. From America, help will come. 

And our guest this week has a unique perspective on what that means— and what all of it means. As one of the first journalists allowed to enter and report on the capture of Saddam Hussein, later covering the conflict in Gaza as well as the Arab Spring. He understands the middle east. He understands America. He understands Georgia. And his unique perspective will help shed light on the Georgia special election results, the growing American insurgency, revolution in Iran, as well as the war in Ukraine. He’s Ayman Mohyeldin (@AymanM).
