  1. Another fascinating discussion.
    Thank you.

    At the end of the podcast, there was mention of the end of wokeism, racism, etc., and returning to common sense, etc. Such always reminds me of Booker T Washington’s various quotes, Booker – the fellow who successfully fled a previous life of actual slavery by walking 500 miles (on foot) to an education. He made a notable observation of those who profit from their continual harping on slavery. Such grifters are obvious today walking around in highly tailored, tight-fitting suits, visiting the WH, and their comical use of Ebonics and lack of grammar to propel their downtrodden plight.

    No need to mention names since they stand out in our society like a sore thumb. Instead, Booker made another notable observation: “The happiest people are those who do the most for others. The most miserable are those who do the least.”

    Hmm, one might wonder whether the miserable reverend could walk even one mile for an education.

  2. “AP News › article › russia…
    Plane crash believed to have killed Russia’s Wagner mercenary chief …
    2 days ago — US intelligence says an intentional explosion brought down Wagner chief Prigozhin’s plane.”

    AP News also parroted Biden won the 2020 election.

    When in history did failed assassin mercenaries result in exposure of who hired to set them on such a path?

  3. The US has spent 48 billion dollars over 2 years a lot goes to US companies The US department of defense spends of 800 billion dollars..The best propaganda is

  4. Just listen to this, great stuff. I would add that the battle of Midway outcome, yes the turning point of the Pacific theatre, was mostly due to the breaking of the enigma/purple machines by the Brits and sharing with the Americans. However, I do believe there is some disagreements on how the Japanese encryptions were broken, the key was identifying small phrases that were regularly used just like the Germans. This deception, which ultimately broke the Japanese navy, was the beginning of the end; I believe the Japanese lost multiple carriers which broke their backs.


      Do you have any sources to back up your statement that the Battle of Midway’s outcome was impacted by British sharing their enigma/purple content with the Americans? Because I haven’t read that in any account of the battle, old or new. Neither Lord nor Prange make any mention of British sharing intelligence, neither do Lundstrom or Parshall & Tully. As far as every source up till now states, the codebreaking was entirely a US Navy effort. Not even “The Battle of Midway” by Craig Symonds, which focuses on the codebreaking efforts, makes no mention at all of any intelligence shared by the British. It was strictly an American effort. But if you have a source that you can site, it’ll be interesting to read that.

  5. Shokin was brought out of retirement by Poroshenko because the guy before him was not doing t good job ….. must have been the guy who hired HB and friend.

  6. Victor closed his program by dismissing advancement through woke racism with a call for individual merit. Here’s a biblical principle regarding achievement –

    Do you see a man skillful in his work?
    He will stand before kings;
    he will not stand before obscure men.
    Proverbs 22:29
