The Denice Gary Show opens this week on the Trump administration’s work in the Middle East to win the war against Islamic terrorism. Vice President Mike Pence will be making his way to Egypt, Jordan, and Israel next week to help that part of the world develop better counterterrorism strategies, not just for America’s allies and American interests abroad, but for the safety of every American at home. In addition, the Vice President hopes to assist persecuted religious minorities. Learn more.
Furthermore, get my insight and analysis on the 60 Minutes interview with correspondent Leslie Stahl on Russian meddling and the possible interference by RT in the 2018 Presidential election. Was there any role played by the former Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, (DIA), Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn?
Stahl’s superfluous questions and RT’s (Russia Today) Editor-in Chief, Margarita Simonyan’s straight-forward responses undermine the liberal argument of collusion with the Russians by Team Trump – hear more. [See: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/rt-editor-in-chief-on-election-meddling-russian-propaganda-label/]
And note: During Flynn’s tenure as DIA Director during the Obama administration, he routinely pushed for greater intelligence sharing. Flynn had previously served as a leading figure in coalition and special operations intelligence activities which led to his disagreements with former President Obama on prosecuting the war against Islamic terrorists and working to prevent the Islamic State, IS/ISIS/ISIL, from building a regional caliphate. This led to Obama’s firing of Lt. Gen. Flynn after which he was contacted by all the Republican presidential candidates. Flynn’s counsel was sought on a range of national security issues concerning threats from around the globe. Will Mueller now investigate ALL the presidential candidates? Learn more.
Also hear special guest Dr. Mordechai Kedar from Jerusalem, Israel. [See: http://mordechaikedar.com/ ] He is an expert on Islamism and worked in military intelligence. He addresses three key issues. They are as follows:
1/ Concerning allegations that members of the Trump administration colluded with the Russians, what do Israelis think of this “collusion” issue in light of former President Obama’s collusion with the Muslim Brotherhood, a terrorist group, that lead to the ushering in of a dangerous new leader in Egypt – a powerful Muslim Brotherhood operative, Mohammad Morsi?
And lest anyone forget, the Obama team also interfered with Israeli elections in 2015 by campaigning against Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.
What do Israelis think of the U.S. State Department paying hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayer grants to a group that used the money to build a campaign to prevent Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from winning the 2015 elections?
Evidence of this collusion was obtained through a congressional investigation that concluded in 2016. Some $350,000 in U.S. taxpayer money was sent to OneVoice – reportedly to support the group’s anti-Netanyahu efforts. The money was used to build a voter database, train activists, and hire a political consulting firm with ties to President Obama’s campaign — all of which set the stage for an anti-Netanyahu campaign based on evidence obtained by the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations had said in a bipartisan staff report.
2/ Last year China established its first overseas military base in Djibouti, a Muslim dominant country at the Horn of Africa. Now China is building a second military base in Pakistan – a naval installation near the Iranian border in the Balochistan province of Pakistan. The Chinese say they must have it because they need the logistical support and supply services for their warships.
Acquiring nuclear weapons in the 1960s, China has built an inter-continental ballistic missile capability that now includes submarines and land-based delivery systems. Estimates indicate that more than 90 missiles are capable of reaching the United States.
China has been a formidable global power for a long time. Since China first developed such capabilities, the country has taken the position that it did not have major international ambitions beyond serving its own economic growth. Quietly, however, it has been growing its military strength including its blue-water navy and building a substantial space program.
Implications for the United States, Israel and the Middle East are far-reaching. China appears to be coming down hard in its support for Muslim Arab causes further evidenced now by the fact that they are establishing military bases in predominantly Muslim countries.
Does this represent a serious new development for the national security of both the U.S. and Israel?
3/ Most Western leaders and people expected a level of violence, of barbarism to erupt after the Trump administration officially declared that the United States officially recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. And yet, the level of street violence has been kept to a minimum. Dr. Kedar shares reasons why.
