The Bill Walton Show

Over the course of roughly four generations, from around 1950 to the present, American culture has been transformed from a culture that believed in the value of self-control into a culture that celebrates self-expression. And that “self-expression” has now twisted into a new form of anger - political wrath - which makes a performance art out of our darkest emotions. So argues my guest on this episode, Peter Wood, author of Wrath: America Enraged.

Your eyes may glaze over when you hear people talking about the “administrative state.” But if you care about liberty, it’s long past time to start paying close attention to what it is and how impervious it has become to election outcomes.

In the past decade, America’s big businesses have increasingly moved to the political left. For evidence, take a look at their actions and stances on critical race theory indoctrination, vaccine mandates, radical climate change agendas, boardroom “diversity”, doing business and making common cause with a hostile China, etc … on issue after issue they align with the “woke” left.

We are living in a complicated and dangerous time in America.
American intelligence and national security should not be part of partisan politics but that is exactly what they’ve become.

“We saw it towards the end of the Obama administration, and the transition into the Trump administration,” according to my guest, Ambassador Pete Hoekstra.
“The weaponization of intelligence and the intelligence community against an incoming president of the United States. And it has continued right up to today with reports that the NSA has been listening to Tucker Carlson’s phone calls and screening his emails.”

As former chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and U.S. Ambassador to the Netherlands, Pete has keen insights into the problems plaguing our intelligence community.

Moreover, America’s divisions over national security have never been greater, explains my other guest Fred Fleitz, President of the Center for Security Policy who served as Deputy Assistant to the President and as Chief of Staff of the National Security Council.

“The globalist elite sees the U.S. as the main threat to international security. They would like to reign in the United States. They don't see China as a threat. They don't see Russia as a threat. They see America as a threat,”

By contrast, President Trump's foreign policy America First was so successful because it put the interest of the American people, American business and our economy first. It kept us out of unnecessary wars.

The parisan divide is on full display in the U.S. House of Representatives Intelligence Committee.
“The political environment has really gotten ugly in all of Congress but it may be the worst on the Intel committee, which is unprecedented,” says Ambassador Hoekstra.
“Nancy Pelosi has used the selection process to fill the committee with political lieutenants to do her bidding.”

Join us in this wide ranging conversation, as we hone in on these issues, and what we can do to resolve them.
