We explore the original role of the Judiciary as conceived by our Founders, a role that has transformed into that of an oligarchy. Anthony Kennedy determines the outcome of every political issue in our country. That is very dangerous for democracy.
In this episode, Daniel Horowitz is joined by special guest Phil Haney, a former Department of Homeland Security frontline officer, to discuss his book See Something, Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government's Submission to Jihad.
Since leaving the DHS, Haney has become a whistleblower exposing the government’s failures. The result – his intelligence information was eliminated and he was himself investigated by the DHS. Now, Haney joins the Conservative Conscience podcast to shed light about the radical Islamist enemy we face and how the Obama administration is capitulating to jihadist terrorism.
In wake of the #Orlando Terrorist attacks, the GOP have already begun to wilt and bend in the defensive posture they are so often found in after the Democrats go on offense.
Daniel lays out the problems our immigration policy, details the issues which the GOP should be pushing for, and explains why the Republicans should be going on offense and fighting back against the failed policies of the Left and the Obama administration.
Republicans of all stripes are caught in the vicious cycle of having to respond to everything Trump says. They are ensnared in the circuitous Trump trap.
How do they escape?
In this episode, Daniel and Joe discuss the false choice conservatives have been given by the media and political class. Everything in politics is always a binary choice. This year it has fully centered around Trump – whether one is pro-Trump or anti-Trump.
The only way to get out of this trap is to redefine the landscape and actually stand for something. Imagine if Republicans actually fought for some of the priorities we focus on here at Conservative Review?
Then, the binary choice would be whether you are for flooding the country with un-vetted refugees or whether you stand for American sovereignty and security. Or it would be a choice of whether you stand for privacy and sanity with men not being allowed in female dressing rooms or not?
Those are choices conservatives can win. But with a party standing for nothing other than quietly rubber-stamping Obama’s agenda, by default the only exciting news is Trump.
Thus, they are caught in a trap of their own making.
In this episode, Daniel has a special guest, Patrick Poole, who uses his expertise to navigate the murky waters of the Middle East. Daniel and Patrick mark the 72nd anniversary of D-Day and lament how our military and strategic vision has fallen so low since those days of glory. Our military has been abused in recent years by being placed in the cross-fire of sectarian civil wars with no national security interests, definitive outcomes, or reasonable rules of engagement.
Patrick offers unique insights and updates on what is happening in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya. He observes how our special operations soldiers are being stretched thin and being placed in impossible circumstances because they are being used as the president’s private army in order to fulfill his fundamental global transformation.
Finally, Daniel notes that with the upcoming debate in the Senate over the defense authorization bill, Republicans have an opportunity to stand for our military and question Obama’s misuse of our soldiers in pursuit of aimless missions. Sadly, we have no men on the field in Washington to stand for the men who are being placed in the line of fire. A far cry from the WWII days when our soldiers knew that their military and political leadership had their back.
