246. Why We Must Support Israel AND Ukraine. Gaza Hospital Explodes Tensions Worldwide. ATACMS Explode in Ukraine. American Troops Wounded in Iraq?!? STILL No Speaker. Tubervilles’s Gaslighting of America. RFK Jr, Cornel West and No Labels: No Thank You!

Explosions are everywhere. And that makes it VERY much a time to stay vigilant. More than any other time in recent memory. 

Israel is at war with Hamas. Explosions from the ATACMS (The Army Tactical Missile System) fired by Ukrainian forces hitting Russian forces inside Ukraine. Explosions at the Al-Ahli hospital in Gaza City. Which was originally blamed on Israel–and is now likely to have been caused by Hamas. And American troops were hit by drones in Iraq. WTF?!?! It feels like there are explosions happening all over the world. And that’s true. 

Including here at home, where there are daily political explosions. Barrage after barrage of explosions blowing up our politics. Led not by rocket attacks, but by political attacks from by radical political suicide bombers. Ideologues who wanna blow it all up in support of their radical agenda. That’s why we have no Speaker of the house for two weeks and counting.

 And our host, Army veteran, author, professor and national security and politics analyst Paul Rieckhoff (@PaulRieckhoff) is breaking it all down, laying out what’s next, ripping into what’s most important, and issuing a call to action. This is a special episode to respond to the moment that has all our heads spinning. And another insightful and rapid-fire episode of the best independent politics, news and culture show in America. One that sits uniquely on the intersection between politics and national security. Other podcasts cover what happened. We cover what’s next. And how to prepare yourself and your family for it.
