From Hezbollah to the HouthisUnderstanding Iran's Proxy Network


The Houthi movement in Yemen has launched dozens of attacks against commercial ships in the Red Sea in recent months. Over the same period, militant groups have attacked US forces in the Middle East as many as 160 times—including the deadly drone attack against a base on Jordan’s border with Syria. And cross-border strikes between Hezbollah, operating from its southern Lebanon base, and Israeli forces have increased. All of this has occurred since Israel began its campaign in Gaza in response to Hamas’s October 7 attacks. And all of these groups have strong relationships with Iran. But how should we understand this complex array of combatant groups and their employment by Tehran? More directly, how should the US government respond to these groups’ actions? To explore these questions, this episode features a conversation with Jonathan Panikoff, director of the Scowcroft Middle East Security Initiative at the Atlantic Council.

Sanctions and Security


While Ukraine's international supporters have provided equipment to enable the country's defense against Russia's aggression for nearly two years, global actors have also responded on a completely separate front—putting in place a massive sanctions regime targeting Russia. What effect have they had on Russia and its ability to make war? More broadly, how do sanctions and other instruments of economic statecraft fit within the United States' foreign and security policy? To explore those questions, John Amble is joined on this episode by Edward Fishman, a former government official who worked extensively on sanctions policy and is now an adjunct senior fellow at the Center for a New American Security and a nonresident senior fellow at the Atlantic Council.

Amphibious Operationsfrom History to the Future Battlefield


Most people know something about the most famous amphibious operations in military history—the D-Day landings and Gallipoli, for example. But what about an amphibious night attack on the shores of Tuscany in 1555? Or a Turkish amphibious assault in response to a coup in Cyprus in 1974? This episode features a conversation with Tim Heck, coeditor of the book On Contested Shores: The Evolving Role of Amphibious Operations in the History of Warfare, and explores the past, present, and future of amphibious operations.

Understanding Hamas: From Tactics to Strategy


This special episode of the MWI Podcast features the first installment of a three-part miniseries produced by the Irregular Warfare Initiative. The series focuses on irregular warfare in Israel and is hosted by Adam Darnley-Stuart. In the first episode, he speaks to renowned counterterrorism analyst Dr. Levi West about Hamas, its history, and its strategy. Dr. West offers nuanced insights into Hamas operations and the likelihood that the organization's tactics might be adopted by other groups around the world. The discussion explores the effects of the October 7 Hamas attacks and Israel's ongoing military response on the enduring friction between Israel and Iran, examines the broader impacts on the geopolitical environment, and more. Be sure to subscribe to the Irregular Warfare Podcast to hear the second and third parts of this timely series.

Shusha, the Battle that Won a War


Observers watched the 2020 Nagorno-Karabakh War closely, searching for indicators of the character of warfare on tomorrow's battlefields. The lessons extracted have covered advanced technology and unmanned platforms, proxy dynamics, the ongoing relevance of armor, and more. But some of the most important lessons have received much less attention. They center around the increasingly unavoidable importance of combat in cities and are drawn principally from the battle for the city of Shusha—a fight that arguably decided the outcome of the war. Listen as John Spencer, chair of urban warfare studies at MWI, explains why.


Mon, 23 Oct 2023 15:26:33 +0000

What Was Hamas Thinking?


When Hamas fighters conducted a large-scale and deadly attack against Israel and its people on October 7, what was the group aiming to achieve? What were its strategic objectives? And what sort of Israeli response was it planning for? On this episode, John Amble speaks to Dr. Michele Groppi, a lecturer in the Defence Studies Department at King’s College London. Hamas's brutal attacks might have been tactically successful, but as Michele argues, they also might have actually exceeded what the group thought it would be able to accomplish. And that tactical success might prove to be a major strategic error, if Israel sets as the objective of any ground campaign in Gaza the complete organizational dismantling of Hamas and total destruction of its military capabilities.


Wed, 18 Oct 2023 15:30:12 +0000

Combined Arms in Gaza


As Israeli ground forces mobilize for what at this point appears to be a looming battle in Gaza to destroy Hamas military capability, this episode looks ahead at what form that battle will take. Liam Collins and John Spencer, two former Army officers with a a variety of combat experience and the authors of a book on urban warfare, join John Amble to explore the importance of employing combined arms—infantry, tanks, artillery, engineers, and other capabilities—when operating in urban areas like those that compose much of Gaza's territory. They describe why such an approach will be central to determining the shape of the battle and its outcome, as well as the challenges of operating in this fashion in complex and structurally dense cities.

The Battle of MogadishuThirty Years On


Thirty years ago this week—on October 3, 1993—US special operations forces launched a mission in Mogadishu. It was part of Operation Gothic Serpent, which was aimed at capturing Somali warlord Mohamed Farrah Aidid. The mission was intended to be of a short duration. But things changed when, shortly after members of Task Force Ranger launched from their base, fighters on the ground began firing on US aircraft. The battle that ensued—which would later become the subject of journalist Mark Bowden’s book, Black Hawk Down, and subsequently a film of the same name—lasted well into the next day. In this episode, you'll hear three people who took part in that battle. Listen as they share their firsthand perspectives of the action over those two days, describing the challenges they faced, reflecting on what was required to overcome those challenges, and exploring the lessons the battle holds for future Army leaders.

History, Identity, and Russia's War in Ukraine


While Western leaders, media, and institutions have condemned Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and its conduct of the ongoing war—characterizing it as a brutal act of naked aggression—to many Russians, their military forces are heroes, protecting the Russian nation, its place in the world, and its very identity. What explains this extraordinarily different perspective? This episode features a discussion with Dr. Jade McGlynn, a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of War Studies at King’s College London and author of two recently published books that combine to shed light on this question. As she explains, there is a complex set of layers through which the war is understood—layers composed of history, issues of identity, and national narratives. This means that, effectively, Russians are watching an entirely different war than those in the West.

Sweden, Finland, and NATO


The decisions by the governments of Sweden and Finland to apply to join NATO marked a major departure from both countries' longstanding policies of nonalignment. But how, specifically, will it affect these countries’ defense capabilities—and those of NATO? How much needs to be done to achieve interoperability? And most fundamentally, while Russia’s invasion of Ukraine clearly triggered these decisions, why did both countries make this major decision at the particular moment they did? To unpack those questions and many more, John Amble is joined on this episode by Rasmus Hindren, the head of international relations at the European Center of Excellence for Countering Hybrid Threats, a senior nonresident fellow at the Atlantic Council, and an experienced defense policy practitioner in his home country of Finland.

Securing NATO's Baltic Flank


Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine last year, the world has seen firsthand evidence of the threat posed by the revanchist state. Among those who perceive this threat most acutely are the three Baltic nations of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. The fundamental facts of these states’ existence—their comparatively small size, proximity to Russia, and position on the northeastern flank of the NATO alliance—combine to make the threat both direct and real. But what can NATO do to deter Russian military aggression against the three countries in the future—and defend against that aggression should it occur? This episode tackles that question and features a discussion with Mark Cancian. A senior adviser with the International Security Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, he is the author of a recently published report, “Repel, Don’t Expel: Strengthening NATO’s Defense and Deterrence in the Baltic States.” He joins the podcast to share some of the insights and conclusions featured in the report.

The Robotic Revolution is Here


This episode of the MWI Podcast features a conversation with August Cole, coauthor of a new book called Burn-In: A Novel of the Real Robotic Revolution. It’s a techno-thriller and a work of fiction, but it is also based on deep research and allows readers to examine the types of technologies that will increasingly characterize the future—from everyday life to the conduct of war. In fact, the seemingly remarkable technologies featured in the book's plot are already emerging and in many cases already exist.

Inside Azovstal


When Russia invaded Ukraine in February 2022, one of its first targets was the city of Mariupol. Despite being outnumbered by—and less well equipped than—their adversaries, Ukrainian defenders held out for three months. As the Russian siege of the city intensified, Ukrainian forces defended a shrinking perimeter with a command post in the Azovstal steel plant. One of those Ukrainian defenders was Sergeant Arseniy Fedosiuk. MWI's John Spencer had the opportunity to speak to him about his experience in Mariupol, and you'll hear part of that discussion in this episode.

The full conversation from which this episode is drawn will be released on Friday, July 21, as an episode of the Urban Warfare Project Podcast, which you can find wherever you get your podcasts. Be sure to subscribe so you don't miss the complete discussion with this phenomenal guest.

After the Wagner Mutiny, What Next for the War in Ukraine?


When Yevgeny Prighozin, the head of the Wagner Group, released a video on June 23 that criticized Russian leaders' management of the war in Ukraine, it was the first in a series of extraordinary events that played out with the world watching. One of those people watching closely as the private military company's forces entered the city of Rostov-on-Don and began an advance toward Moscow was retired Lieutenant General Ben Hodges. A former commanding general of US Army Europe, he joins this episode to lend his extensive experience and nuanced understanding of Russia and European security to a discussion that aims to contextualize the remarkable recent events in Russia and explore how they will impact the ongoing war in Ukraine.

World Order in the Drone Age


In this episode, Paul Lushenko joins to discuss armed drones—in particular the impact their proliferation will have on global order. That's the subject of a new book for which he was a coeditor. Why do states—and nonstate actors—choose to use armed drones as weapons of war? How does that decision affect these actors' international reputations? How do questions of law and morality intersect when it comes to drones? And beyond impacting the character of warfare, to what extent will armed, networked, and unmanned platforms change geopolitical dynamics and balances of power? This episode tackles those questions and more.


Wed, 31 May 2023 13:49:43 +0000

How is Russia Adapting its Tactics in Ukraine?


When Russia invaded Ukraine last year, its ground forces were largely built around the battalion tactical group. Fifteen months on, and that organizational structure has been dramatically changed. Why? And what explains other examples of evolving Russian tactics? Dr. Jack Watling, a senior research fellow for land warfare at the Royal United Services Institute, joins this episode to address these questions and examine these adaptations. He recently coauthored a report, based on close and firsthand study of the war in Ukraine, that traces a number of the specific ways in which Russian tactics have changed over the course of the conflict. He describes those adaptations in this conversation—and explains their implications for Ukraine and its international supporters.

Change and Continuity: Tracing the Evolution of Turkish Statecraft


Turkey is in the middle of a presidential election, the closest challenge to Recep Tayyip Erdoan in his twenty years in power. This offers an opportunity for a broad survey of the evolution of Turkish foreign policy, statecraft, and strategy during those two decades and an exploration of how these might continue to evolve going forward. This episode features a discussion with Dr. Ziya Meral, a senior associate fellow at the Royal United Services Institute and specialist in Turkish foreign policy. From the emergence of Turkey’s strong and growing defense industry to the challenges it must navigate amid tensions between NATO and Russia, this discussion offers a detailed look at Turkey’s position on a shifting regional and global strategic landscape.

Neuroscience, Neurotechnology, and the Future of War


How will the rapid pace of advancement in the fields of neuroscience and neurotechnology impact the changing character of warfare? Will they lead to the human brain becoming a battlespace as new scientific breakthroughs and novel technologies are weaponized? This episode features a discussion with a guest who argues that a convergence between neuroscience and the conduct of war is already occurring. Dr. James Giordano is the chief of the Neuroethics Studies Program at Georgetown University and codirector of the O’Neill-Pellegrino Program in Brain Science and Global Health Law and Policy in the Pellegrino Center for Clinical Bioethics. He describes what effects advances in brain science might have on the future of war.

Command in Modern War


Would Patton be an effective battlefield commander today? Do the characteristics of successful commanders generally remain constant over time? Or do they evolve alongside—and in response to—the changing character of warfare? And if they do change, what traits will commanders need on the battlefields of today and tomorrow? Dr. Anthony King, the author of the book Command: The Twenty-First-Century General, joins this episode to discuss these questions and more.

Russia and the Arctic Conundrum


Arctic geopolitics are characterized by features that set the region apart from others. Eveything from governance structures to the way Arctic states engage with one another to the way they tackle shared challenges and address disputes—these all look different in the Arctic than elsewhere. But Russia's 2022 invasion of Ukraine led to a disruption in Arctic engagement, with the seven other Arctic states suspending participation in Arctic Council activities for the duration of Russia's chairmanship of the organization. This raises important questions: Is a return to engagement and cooperation even possible in the future? And what are the long-term implications of halting engagement likely to be? To explore these tricky issues and better understand Russian, American, and other stakeholders' strategic interests in the region, John Amble is joined on this episode by Dr. Elizabeth Buchanan, codirector of MWI's Project 6633 and the author of a new book, Red Arctic: Russian Strategy Under Putin.

Can Taiwan Become a Poison Frog?


In this episode, John Amble speaks with Chris Dougherty of the Center for a New American Security. He and his colleagues have conducted a wargame that sought to identify what strategic options the United States and Taiwan have to deter a particular fait accompli move by China against Taiwan. What they concluded was that the best option is something they describe as “the poison frog strategy.” Listen as he describes what that entails, and why it's the most viable means of implementing deterrence against China.

How to Build an Effective Partner Militaryand How Not To


After twenty years of America’s post-9/11 wars and the US military’s struggle to build capable and effective security forces in Iraq and Afghanistan, there is an important discussion taking place about what role security force assistance should play for the United States in the very different strategic environment that is taking shape. Will it be a mission that we'll be required to do in order to compete with Russia and China? Or will it become tangential to our preparations for large-scale combat operations? And given the challenges we faced over the past two decades, what needs to happen to achieve better outcomes in the future? Will Reno, a professor at Northwestern University, and Franky Matisek, an Air Force officer and associate professor at the US Air Force Academy, have researched the topic deeply, including conducting hundreds of interviews in the field. They join this episode to discuss their findings.

Twelve Months of War


One year ago this week, Russian forces invaded Ukraine. Twelve months on, how should we think about the way the war has taken shape? What lessons about modern war should we be learning? What assumptions about the modern battlefield has the conflict challenged, and what assumptions has it reinforced? And what features will characterize the war in the months ahead? In this episode, John Amble is joined by retired Australian Army Major General Mick Ryan. With decades of military and leadership experience, he has been one of the sharpest and most insightful observers of the war in Ukraine. Listen as he describes his views of the conflict so far and illuminates what we might expect as the war enters its second year.

When Cities Become Battlefields


This episode features a conversation with MWI's chair of urban warfare studies, John Spencer. A leading expert on urban warfare and the coauthor of the book Understanding Urban Warfare, his deep practical experience and scholarship on both historical and modern cases of urban warfare make him the ideal guest to address a range of important questions. Are cities uniquely challenging for military forces? Why? What steps can be taken to achieve a higher level of preparedness for those challenges? And is it possible to replicate cities’ complexity in a training environment? These are just a few of the topics he offers his keen insights on.


Wed, 25 Jan 2023 12:44:00 +0000

The Theory and Practice of Resistance


In this episode, John Amble speaks to Sandor Fabian about a very specific approach to national defense: resistance. The war in Ukraine has made clear that comparatively small states can be vulnerable to the threat of aggression from larger neighbors. Resistance, Sandor argues, is the most viable means of defense for these states. But effectively embracing it as a strategic approach would require dramatic changes in force structure, training, equipment, doctrine, and more. And if small US allies choose to do so, it would have important implications for US special operations forces and for NATO.

Who Innovates Wins? Drones and Adaptation in the Ukraine War


Ukrainian forces have been praised for their innovation efforts during their ongoing war with Russia, particularly with regard to the use of unmanned aerial vehicles. But what has that innovation actually looked like? Is it principally about repurposing equipment, like commercial quadcopters, or is it more a function of implementation, like experimenting with new tactics? And how has Russian forces' own innovation compared? Most importantly, what effect has innovation had on battlefield outcomes? Sam Bendett, an adviser at CNA’s Strategy, Policy, Plans, and Programs Center and a member of CNA’s Russia Studies Program, joins this episode to discuss these questions and more.

What Should We Make of the Protests in Iran?


Since the middle of September, when an Iranian woman died after being detained in Tehran for improperly wearing her headscarf, protests have gripped the country. But what sets them apart from previous periods of demonstrations against the Iranian regime? Will that regime manage to weather the storm and bring the protests to an end as it has in the past? And what are the possible outcomes if the movement not only maintains its momentum but gathers strength? Alex Vatanka, director of the Iran Program at the Middle East Institute, joins this episode to discuss these questions and more.

Data and the Battlefield


This episode examines how special operations forces are integrating high-tech tools like artificial intelligence and machine learning to optimize their operations. Dr. Richard Shultz of the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy and Gen. Richard Clarke, commander of US Special Operations Command, join the podcast to trace the history of US special operations forces' efforts in Iraq to adapt to the counterterrorism fight there, explain how these forces made use of data to enable a remarkably rapid operational tempo, and describe how a program called Project Maven took shape to harness new technological capabilities.

What Kind of Leader Will Al-Qaeda Choose Next?


The recent death of Ayman al-Zawahiri marks a rare inflection point for a terrorist organization that has had just two leaders in the more than three decades of its existence. Forecasting its future trajectory—and developing counterterrorism policy—will depend on what type of leader emerges as Zawahiri's successor. Dr. Tricia Bacon and Dr. Elizabeth Grimm are the authors of a new book, Terror in Transition: Leadership and Succession in Terrorist Organizations. They join this episode to describe the five categories of leader they have identified by rigorously analyzing leadership succession in terrorist organizations. They also explain what each of those types of leader would mean for al-Qaeda going forward and why it is so crucial for counterterrorism policymakers and practitioners to understand these leadership types as they conceptualize the threat posed by the terrorist organization and seek ways to counter that threat.

On the Streets: Irregular Warfare in an Urban World


How are demographic and economic shifts increasing the importance of urban centers around the globe? What does this mean for military forces? To what extent do the local politics of a city complicate military operations there—specifically irregular warfare activities? When conflict between an insurgency and government forces enters a city, does the terrain inherently favor one side over the other? This special episode addresses these questions as it brings together two of the Modern War Institute's core areas of focus: urban warfare and irregular warfare.

Kyle Atwell and Ben Jebb host the episode. You can also hear this and many more insightful explorations of issues related to irregular warfare on the Irregular Warfare Podcast. And don't miss the exceptional written content produced by the Irregular Warfare Initiative.

Their guests are Sergeant Major Charles Ritter, deputy commandant of the US Army's JFK Special Warfare Center and School, and John Spencer, chair of urban warfare studies at the Modern War Institute. A leading expert on urban warfare, John also leads the Urban Warfare Project and hosts the Urban Warfare Project Podcast, both of which are outstanding resources on urban warfare and its challenges.

Just How Crowded Is The Space Domain?


As the US Space Force nears its third birthday, John Amble is joined by Dr. Moriba Jah on this episode to explore just how crowded the space domain is—especially with the surprising amount of detritus created over more than six decades of the Space Age. Dr. Jah is an aerospace engineer who has worked for NASA and the Air Force Research Laboratory. He is now an associate professor at the University of Texas, where he monitors space and works to track thousands of objects—a number that continues to grow—orbiting Earth.

Why Cohesion Matters


The term "cohesion" features prominently in discussions of military effectiveness, especially at the small-unit level. We all know intuitively what it means, but understanding how to develop and nurture it in practice is a challenge. That's even more true as technological advancement continues to make constant connectivity with the outside world easier, even from a battlefield. How do soldiers' stresses from home impact cohesion? What about when soldiers no longer process shared traumatic experiences together? John Spencer spent twenty-five years as an infantry soldier and officer, including leading troops in combat. His new book, Connected Soldiers, is based on both his personal experience and deep research. He joins this episode to discuss how unit cohesion affects military performance and how leaders can foster its development.

The British Army and the Post-9/11 Wars


This episode features a discussion with Simon Akam, author of the book The Changing of the Guard: The British Army Since 9/11. The book tells the story of nearly two decades of the service's experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan. Critical of the British Army's leadership at times, it aims to jumpstart an honest conversation about the those wars, the service's performance in them, the relationship between the UK military and the British people, and more. It's an insightful, thought-provoking conversation that brings into focus issues that are important not just in the United Kingdom but in the United States, as well.

Far-Right Extremism and the War in Ukraine since 2014


How have European far-right extremists responded to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine? How has the Russian government leveraged the Russian far right in service of its objectives in the war? And how should we understand the role of Ukraine's well-known Azov regiment? These questions all revolve around the complicated intersection of far-right politics, foreign fighter mobilization, and war. Exploring them requires a nuanced understanding of context that extends back much earlier than Russia's February invasion. On this episode, a joint production between MWI and the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point, Kacper Rekawek joins to share insights based on years of research on the subject.

Competition, Conflict, and Cyber


How does cyberspace differ from the other warfighting domains—land, sea, air, and space? What challenges do those differences pose? Does cyber require unique approaches to talent manage to ensure the US military can recruit, promote, and retain the talent it needs? What resources are needed to effectively compete in cyberspace, and are those different from the resources necessary for a conflict scenario? How would the cyber dimension of a modern war play out, and are there lessons from the ongoing war in Ukraine that illuminate this question? In this episode, John Amble is joined by Captain Maggie Smith, PhD, and Dr. Erica Lonergan of the Army Cyber Institute to explore these questions and others.

For more analysis on a wide range of cyber-related topics, check out the Competition in Cyberspace Project, a joint initiative of the Modern War Institute and the Army Cyber Institute.

Finding Opportunity in a Competitive Strategic Environment


When the idea of great power competition began to gain traction with the publication of the 2017 National Security Strategy and the 2018 National Defense Strategy, it was in some ways less a strategy than a conceptual outline of one. Amid subsequent efforts to build out a more robust competitive framework around the idea, a vital question has taken shape: How should the US policy community develop a strategy that identifies and pursues opportunities in an increasingly competitive environment? A new book by Ali Wyne, America's Great Power Opportunity, sets out to advance our collective thinking about that challenge. He joins this episode to explore some of the key issues surrounding this important effort.

Adapting During War


What are the hallmarks of an adaptable military force? What types of leaders best create cultures of adaptability in their formations? How do such forces employ rapidly changing technologies? And how does doctrine drive or limit adaptation? Dr. Nora Bensahel and retired Lt. Gen. Dave Barno—authors of the book Adaptation Under Fire: How Militaries Change in Wartime—join this episode to discuss these questions and more. The episode was originally recorded and released in early 2021, and returning to it helps to provide a framework within which to understand the ways in which adaptation—or failures to adapt—have played into the ongoing war in Ukraine over more than four months.

On War and Sanctions


While Ukrainian forces have fought to defend against Russia's invasion since February, the war's conduct has been influenced by international involvement—namely, the supply of weapons and equipment Ukraine has received from its foreign supporters. But as the United States, its European allies, and other countries around the world have offered military assistance, they have also been active on another front: putting in place a massive sanctions regime targeting Russia. That's the subject this episode explores. John Amble is joined by Edward Fishman, a former government official who worked extensively on sanctions policy and is now an adjunct senior fellow at the Center for a New American Security and a nonresident senior fellow at the Atlantic Council.

Amphibious Operations and the Future of War


The war in Ukraine has been playing out in—and across—all domains. So it is perhaps surprising that Russia's invasion plan held almost no role for the type of operation designed to bridge two of those domains. There has been little sign that Russia sought to employ amphibious operations to gain a foothold in the south of the country—despite Ukraine's long Black Sea coast. Is this an indicator that such operations are a relic of the past? Or is it an anomaly? To help understand those questions, we're returning to an episode originally released early last year that featured a conversation with Tim Heck, MWI's deputy editorial director and coeditor of the book On Contested Shores: The Evolving Role of Amphibious Operations in the History of Warfare.

Bayraktar (Story of a Drone)


Almost every listener will be familiar with the Turkish-made TB-2 Bayraktar drone. Most will have seen the many reports of its operational effectiveness in the hands of Ukrainian forces defending against Russia's invasion of their country. But beyond that media coverage, the story of the drone's development, its particular capabilities, and its performance not just in Ukraine but in other recent conflict, as well, is an interesting one. To discuss these topics and explore the broader implications of the TB-2's effectiveness in Ukraine, John Amble is joined on this episode by Dr. Can Kasapoglu, director of the Security and Defense Studies Program at EDAM, a Turkish think tank, and a nonresident fellow at the Jamestown Foundation.

When Frozen Conflicts Turn Hot: Learning from Nagorno-Karabakh


The ongoing war in Ukraine is giving observers a chance to forecast how future conflicts will take shape. Drones, advanced sensors, and other technologies are playing impactful roles in the fight. At the same time, artillery is demonstrating its enduring relevance in large-scale combat, air defense is reemerging as a criticial capability, and basic concepts like effective camouflage are proving to be as important as they are fundamental. Many, if not all, of these trends were on display more than a year earlier in another war that received considerably less attention but is similarly packed with lessons about the future of war. Dr. Jack Watling joins this episode to discuss the 2020 Nagorno-Karabakh War.

Note: This episode was originally released in October 2020.

Breaking Down the Hypersonic Missile Threat


Hypersonic missiles have become an increasingly frequent focus of defense and security discussions in recent years and the subject of growing public attention. But what truly sets them apart, beyond just velocity, from existing missile technology? Do they represent a game changer on the strategic landscape, or are they better understood as just an evolutionary step in missile development? What implications do they have from a defense perspective? To address those questions, John Amble is joined on this episode by Tom Karako, director of the Missile Defense Project at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

The Future of European Defense


This episode features a discussion with retired Lt. Gen. Ben Hodges. He served until 2017 as the commanding general of US Army Europe and now holds the pershing Chair in Strategic Studies at the Center for European Policy Analysis. The discussion was originally recorded in the spring of 2021, and the strategic landscape has been dramatically transformed by Russia's invasion of Ukraine. But as the war in Ukraine unfolds, this conversation offers some exceptionally important broader context within which the events of today are taking place. It also offers a framework within which to understand what the invasion means—not only how it happened but also what impact it will have as we look forward.

Understanding No-Fly Zones


This episode of the MWI Podcast tackles the topic of no-fly zones. Almost immediately after Russian forces invaded Ukraine, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy began calling for a no-fly zone to be implemented over his country to negate the effects of Russian airpower. It’s a call that NATO leaders have resisted. To discuss why, and to offer a very unique perspective on what putting a no-fly zone in place actually entails, John Amble is joined by retired US Air Force Colonel Mike Pietrucha, a veteran aviator with extensive combat experience—including taking part in the enforcement of no-fly zones over both northern and southern Iraq and in the former Yugoslavia in the 1990s.

Germany, NATO, and the Ukraine Crisis


In recent weeks there has been a considerable amoung of questioning in public debate in the United States about Germany and—when it has been stated most bluntly—how reliable Germany is as an ally. The reason this is all being raised now is because of the Ukraine crisis. On a few very high-profile issues, Germany—according to this line of questioning—seems hesitant to cooperate fully with NATO partners in supporting Ukraine against the threat of Russian aggression. But the reality is much more complicated than simply saying Germany is or is not a reliable ally. Dr. Ulrike Franke joins this episode to discuss this complex issue and provide the nuance and context necessary to properly understand it.

How Capable is Ukraine's Military?


From 2016 to 2018, Colonel Liam Collins played a key role in US efforts to assist the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense with a series of substantial reforms—ranging from organization and command and control to military training, medicine, and logistics. That experience gives him a unique perspective from which to assess the capabilities of Ukraine's military. With tensions rising amid a Russian troop buildup along its border with Ukraine, he joins the MWI Podcast to share that perspective.

Modern War in 2021: Year in Review


What did we learn about modern war in 2021? What issues defined the most important conversations in defense circles? In this special year-end episode of the MWI Podcast, John Amble speaks to the directors of MWI's four themed projects, each aimed at advancing our understanding of a particular aspect of modern war—the Urban Warfare Project, the Irregular Warfare Initiative, Project 6633, and Shield Notes—along with one of the curators of the Full Spectrum series of articles on cyber and information operations that we published this year. They explain the events that were most significant in the past year, the topics that garnered the most attention, and what they expect for 2022.

When Security Force Assistance Worksand When it Doesn't


After twenty years of America’s post-9/11 wars and the US military’s struggle to build capable and effective security forces in Iraq and Afghanistan, there is an important discussion taking place about what role security force assistance should play for the United States in the very different strategic environment that is taking shape. Will it be a mission that we'll be required to do in order to compete with Russia and China? Or will it become tangential to our preparations for large-scale combat operations? And given the challenges we faced over the past two decades, what needs to happen to achieve better outcomes in the future? Will Reno, a professor at Northwestern University, and Franky Matisek, an Air Force officer and associate professor at the US Air Force Academy, have researched the topic deeply, including conducting hundreds of interviews in the field. They join this episode to discuss their findings.

A Looming Showdown Over Ukraine?


Recently, large numbers of Russian military forces have been moved to areas near Russia's border with Ukraine. This has set off a wave of reporting and analysis about what it likely means. But there’s a considerable degree of nuance and substantial context that both need to be accounted for to best understand what the troop movements indicate, to predict what comes next, and to identify what strategic options are available to the united States and NATO. To examine all of that in this episode of the MWI Podcast, John Amble is joined by Michael Kofman, the director of the Russia Studies Program at the Center for Naval Analyses.


Wed, 17 Nov 2021 13:32:00 +0000

Taiwan, China, and the Poison Frog Strategy


In this episode, John Amble speaks with Chris Dougherty of the Center for a New American Security. He and his colleagues recently conducted a wargame that sought to identify what strategic options the United States and Taiwan have to deter a particular fait accompli move by China against Taiwan. What they found as the best option is something they describe as “the poison frog strategy.” Listen as he describes what that entails, and why it's the most viable means of implementing deterrence against China.


Wed, 03 Nov 2021 06:25:00 +0000

On Resistance


In this episode, John Amble speaks to Sandor Fabian about a very specific approach to national defense: resistance. Specifically, Sandor argues that resistance is the most viable means of defense for small states facing the threat of aggression from a larger neighbor. But effectively embracing it as a strategic approach would require dramatic changes in force structure, training, equipment, doctrine, and more. And if small US allies choose to do so, it would have important implications for US special operations forces and for NATO.

Global Order in the Age of the Drone


In this episode, Paul Lushenko joins to discuss armed drones—in particular the impact their proliferation will have on global order. That's the subject of a new book for which he was a coeditor. Why do states—and nonstate actors—choose to use armed drones as weapons of war? How does that decision affect these actors' international reputations? How do questions of law and morality intersect when it comes to drones? And beyond impacting the character of warfare, to what extent will armed, networked, and unmanned platforms change geopolitical dynamics and balances of power? This episode tackles those questions and more.


Thu, 07 Oct 2021 12:45:00 +0000

A Conversation with the Chief of the National Guard Bureau


In this episode, John Amble speaks to Gen. Daniel Hokanson, chief of the National Guard Bureau. A key pillar of the US defense enterprise, the National Guard is also fundamentally unique. Composed of fifty-four separate entities, it is inherently joint given its Army and Air Force components. It must also balance two, parallel missions—both as a source of combat capability for the joint force and a mechanism to respond to a wide range of emergencies domestically. After twenty years of war in Iraq and Afghanistan, this conversation explores what the future holds for the National Guard.


Wed, 04 Aug 2021 15:42:00 +0000

The Decisive Battle of the Nagorno-Karabakh War


Observers watched the 2020 Nagorno-Karabakh War closely, searching for indicators of the character of warfare on tomorrow's battlefields. The lessons extracted have covered advanced technology and unmanned platforms, proxy dynamics, the ongoing relevance of armor, and more. But some of the most important lessons have received much less attention. They center around the increasingly unavoidable importance of combat in cities and are drawn principally from the battle for the city of Shusha—a fight that arguably decided the outcome of the war. Listen as John Spencer, chair of urban warfare studies at MWI, explains why.

Taking Stock of America's Pacing Threat


China is increasingly labeled America's "pacing threat" by US national security leaders. That makes it more important than ever to understand China with an appropriate degree of nuance. How do politics and military capability overlay on one another in China? How does Beijing view the US-China relationship? How do things like history and military culture factor into Chinese strategy and capabilities? This episode features a conversation with Larry Wortzel, who has spent decades studying China and tackles those questions and more.


Wed, 23 Jun 2021 14:05:00 +0000

As you'll hear, that training isn't just a pillar of Army readiness, but an integral component of the bigger picture of Army modernization.


Fri, 28 May 2021 06:23:00 +0000

Mosul, Urban Destruction, and Political Instability


In this episode of the MWI Podcast, MWI's John Amble speaks to James Verini. An award-winning journalist, he spent months reporting from Mosul as Iraqi forces, backed by US troops, fought to retake the city from Mosul. In the conversation, he not only discusses the fighting he reported on, but also offers important context about Mosul, its people, and its history—all of which is crucial to make sense of urban conflict. As he describes, Mosul also shows how urban conflict's destructive nature and political instability interact with one another in important ways. That is equally true in other sites of recent urban conflict, including during the outbreak of fighting in recent weeks between Israel and Hamas in Gaza City.


Thu, 13 May 2021 06:46:00 +0000

How Militaries Adapt


What are the hallmarks of an adaptable military force? What types of leaders best create cultures of adaptability in their formations? How do such forces employ rapidly changing technologies?

Special Operations Forces in the High North


In this episode, Col. Brian Rauen and Capt. Barrett Martin join to talk about the increasing importance of the Arctic. Col. Rauen is the commander of 10th Special Forces Group, and Capt. Martin is one of the officers assigned to the group. 10th Group has a particular focus on Europe, which means the unit has a natural organizational interest in the Arctic region. As you’ll hear our guests explain, though, that interest is growing. They discuss why that's the case, and they talk about some of the unique challenges posed by such an extreme environment. The episode features a guest host, Dr. Ryan Burke, who is an MWI fellow and co-director of Project 6633, an MWI project focused on polar security.

10th Group and Project 6633 have also partnered to organize an essay contest, inviting submissions that address the question of how American special operations forces can compete with near-peer adversaries in the polar regions. If you’re interested in entering, more details about the contest can be found here.

The book tells the story of nearly two decades of the service's experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan. Critical of the British Army's leadership at times, it aims to jumpstart an honest conversation about the those wars, the service's performance in them, the relationship between the UK military and the British people, and more. It's an insightful, thought-provoking conversation that brings into focus issues that are important not just in the United Kingdom but in the United States, as well.


Thu, 18 Feb 2021 04:19:00 +0000

Why Combatives?


This episode of the MWI Podcast features a conversation with Matt Larsen, known in many corners of the Army as the father of the modern combatives. He explains why he thinks combatives training is so important, but he also talks a lot about the notion of a warrior ethos—what it is and why, as he argues, it’s something that needs to exist throughout the entire Army, not just in infantry or other combat arms units.

The Future of our Army, with Gen. James McConville


This episode of the MWI Podcast features a conversation with Chief of Staff of the Army Gen. James McConville. He talks new weapons and equipment, bringing the active and reserve components together, a revolutionary new talent management system, and even a couple book recommendations!

He took on that role as the seniormost officer in the United States Army in August 2019, and his tenure comes at a time during which the service is in a period of substantial transformation. As he explains, many of the systems the Army uses—especially major weapons systems—were fielded in the late 1970s and early 1980s, another period of major change in the service. That's why the Army is undertaking a massive modernization effort. But that doesn't just mean the weapons and vehicles US soldiers go to war with will change. The doctrine that determines how they fight, the organizational structures of their units, and even the talent management systems that recruit and retain the Army's men and women will be different than those of the past.

Former President Trump Wins Big In South Carolina As Nikki Haley Vows To Continue Campaign


Former President Trump scored a decisive victory over former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley in her home state's primary this weekend. Despite the 20-point loss, Haley has vowed to continue her campaign against President Trump, citing the need for younger leadership in government. This while the Senate must conduct the impeachment trial of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, and the House OversightCommittee continues its ongoing investigation into the Biden family.

Extra: The Targeting Of Gun Transactions


For years, Second Amendment advocates have long raised concerns about both the government and the public sector collecting and tracking gun purchase data. They say this is a privacy issue and a pathway to deny people their rights to own a weapon or target gun owners legally.

Oregon's Overdose Crisis...After Decriminalizing Drugs


In 2020, Oregon voters became the first state to largely decriminalize drug use and small amounts of hard drugs like cocaine, heroin, and fentanyl. Lawmakers pitched Measure 110 as a progressive, fresh approach to helping treat addiction rather than punish it, and the law passed with 58 percent support. Oregon's governor recently declared a drug emergency, as overdose deaths have been climbing year after year and Democratic lawmakers who first pushed to decriminalize drugs are admitting it isn't working. Oregon State Representative Kevin Mannix is a Republican who opposed the measure, and he joins the Rundown to explain how drug decriminalization has caused a rise in overdoses, why drug traffickers are now targeting Oregon, and what he believes could be a compassionate solution to help addicts while keeping drugs off the streets in his state. Although he is facing several criminal trials this year, former President Donald Trump remains the Republican frontrunner in the race for commander-in-chief. He continues to allege that the legal proceedings are a form of election interference, with one case making it to the Supreme Court. Today, the Justices will consider his appeal to a Colorado Supreme Court ruling that could disqualify him from the Centennial State's primary ballot for participating in an insurrection on January 6th.

Extra: The Fight To Hold Social Media Companies Accountable


This past week we spoke to New Mexico's Attorney General Raul Torrez. He traveled to Washington DC to watch the Senate Judiciary Committee's Big Tech hearing in person. There the senators heard from some of the biggest social media company CEOs in the business about their policies or lack of them regarding child safety on their platforms. While most of the CEOs were highly defensive, there was one blockbuster moment during which Missouri Republican Senator Josh Hawley prompted Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg to apologize to the dozens of parents seated behind him whose children had either been harmed online or committed suicide after cyberbullying or being sexually extorted. The CEOs of Discord, Meta, TikTok, Snapchat, and X, formerly known as Twitter, tried to sound open to new legislation, but when asked point blank if they were open to specific existing proposed legislation most would not support the five bills already out there. Torrez is suing Meta for failing to remove child sexual abuse material. Before he was AG Torrez successfully prosecuted violent and sexual crimes and served in the Obama Department of Justice. We did not get to air this during the week so we'll play the full interview here on the FOX News Rundown Extra. You will hear his take on why he thinks big tech should be held legally accountable for failing to protect children from their products. CREDIT: ASSOCIATED PRESS Learn more about your ad choices.

Haley came in third during the Iowa Caucuses; however, now that Florida Governor DeSantis has suspended his campaign, it gives Haley a shot at running in a two-person race. Former White House Deputy Chief of Staff and FOX News contributor Karl Rove discusses what could make Nikki Haley competitive in these primaries and why Governor DeSantis chose the right time to step down. Now that just two contenders remain in the Republican primary race, Nikki Haley is hopeful that the states open primary will give her momentum by picking up independent voters. Meanwhile, President Biden is mounting a write-in campaign against Minnesota Congressman Dean Phillips in the state after the Democratic National Committee moved the primary schedule, with South Carolina now taking New Hampshire's place as the first primary on their calendar. FOX News Radio Political Analyst Josh Kraushaar joins to discuss Nikki Haleys potential path for success in New Hampshire, why this is a pivotal moment in the 2024 campaign, and how the DNC's decision to remove New Hampshire from this year's primary process could hurt President Biden.

Less than ten months to Election Day in November, a Trump-Biden rematch is looking more and more likely, even though voters surveyed consistently say that's not what they want. So the bipartisan organization No Labels continues its efforts to offer an alternative, seeking ballot access across the country while considering potential candidates for a possible unity ticket.

He also discusses Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin being hospitalized in intensive care for five days without notifying the public, the potential of the Israel-Hamas war expanding in the Middle East region, and why the U.S. must keep an eye on adversaries like China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea to ensure they dont strengthen relations. 216,000 jobs were created in December, showing that the American labor market remains strong even as high interest rates persist.

Long-time California congressman Kevin McCarthy is leaving Congress at the end of the year. The announcement came less than two months after the historic House vote to oust him as Speaker. That motion to vacate was supported by Democrats but led by eight of his fellow Republicans who took issue with his handling of spending issues. After the three weeks of GOP infighting, Mike Johnson eventually emerged as McCarthy's replacement as House speaker. McCarthy's exit means the GOP's slim majority will get even slimmer. Shortly after the news broke, FOX News Rundown host Lisa Brady spoke with Trey Gowdy, former South Carolina congressman, host of The Trey Gowdy podcast, and host of Sunday Night in America on the FOX News Channel. Gowdy weighed in on his friend's retirement, the state of our political system, and why he thinks the dysfunction in Congress is discouraging good people from running for office. He compared many lawmakers to the celebrity family, the Kardashians, accusing them of being more interested in getting attention than passing laws. We made edits for time and thought you might like to hear our entire conversation with Trey Gowdy.

Should antisemitic speech be protected as free speech on college campuses in the U.S.?

This money, which aims to address the opioid crisis and repay families who have been personally impacted by opioids, initially sounded like a good deal to many Americans, but the payments would be stretched out over 18 years and would allow the family behind Purdue Pharma to walk away scot-free. On the Rundown, Bill Nelson, who lost his 20-year-old stepson Brian to an opioid overdose, explains why he's against the deal and would rather the head of the company, Richard Sackler, be "locked up in a jail cell" than this settlement go through.

House Majority Whip Tom Emmer Talks George Santos Expulsion & Potential Biden Impeachment Inquiry


House Republicans have been digging into the Biden family'sallegedlyquestionable business dealings for months, and they're now taking things a step further working towards authorizing a formal impeachment inquiry into the President to strengthen House Republicans' legal standing in court while their investigation continues.

Though Congress is getting a break to spend Thanksgiving with loved ones, members have a lot of work to do when they return to Washington. House Republicans have their hands full with working across the aisle to reach a consensus on how to fund the government while cutting back spending, securing our southern border, aiding our allies in Ukraine and Israel, and more -- but will the Democratic-led Senate and President Biden be open to working alongside Republicans to avoid the back and forth we've seen thus far?

Why A Ceasefire Is Off The Table For Israel


As civilians in Gaza continue to struggle immensely, there are mixed thoughts on whether Israel should call a ceasefire or continue its fight against Hamas. However, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu confirmed last week that a cease fire is not an option as of now as it could benefit Hamas. At home, concerns over the southern border are top of mind -- as calls for better resources and funding remain an insistent ask from Republican lawmakers. On the Rundown, the youngest female to ever serve in the Senate and Alabama's first female Senator, Katie Britt, discusses why she agrees a ceasefire cannot happen until Hamas is defeated and how the White House's inability to acknowledge the border crisis stops them from fixing it. She also discusses her new book, 'God Calls Us To Do Hard Things: Lessons from the Alabama Wiregrass,' which shares her story and urges Americans to better for themselves and the nation. Since the pandemic normalized working from home, office spaces have been less occupied, with one report even showing office occupancy rates in major cities are nearly half their pre-pandemic levels. The Biden administration has announced it will try to convert commercial real estate to residential housing to help with affordability. Economist and business professor at University of Maryland, Peter Morici tells the Rundown this effort is unrealistic.

The Democrats Divided Over Israel-Hamas War


Protests are breaking out across the country as a result of the Israel-Hamas war, with many supporting pro-Palestinian causes in major cities. The rhetoric has grown inflammatory both in these demonstrations and on Capitol Hill. Recently, Rep. Rashida Tlaib was censured by the House after promoting false narratives about the Hamas attack on October 7th. As the divide between Democrats widens on this issue, what could this mean moving forward? On the Rundown, Fox & Friends co-host and host of The Brian Kilmeade Show, Brian Kilmeade, joins to discuss why understanding the complex history behind the Israel-Hamas war is crucial before forming opinions and also discusses his new book hitting shelves, 'Teddy and Booker T,' which explores the allyship between Theodore Roosevelt and Booker T. Washington. When Democrats went to the ballot boxes on Tuesday, abortion was most certainly an issue on their minds. In the now-red state of Ohio, 56 percent of voters approved Measure One to amend the state constitution to preserve Ohioans reproductive health rights, including birth control and abortion. In Virginia, Democrats won full state legislative control, and in Kentucky, incumbent Democratic Governor Andy Bashear held onto his seat. In all of these results, pundits say abortion was a driving factor. GOP pollster and President of Maslansky and Partners, Lee Carter, joins the podcast to explain how this issue drove people to the polls and its potential impact on 2024.

Why Sen. Cruz Wants To Make America "Unwoke" Again


In the wake of Hamas October 7th terror attacks on Israel, university campus protests were sparked against Israel and in favor of the Palestinian cause. Many of these college demonstrations featuring antisemitic chants or signs have been supported by some university staff, bringing many to question what exactly is being taught in Americas educational institutions. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) believes cultural Marxism is to blame for this, arguing in his new book, "Unwoke, that much of what is being spread in U.S. institutions is a dangerous far-left ideology. He joins the Rundown to discuss his new book, how it can explain the surge in anti-Israel and antisemitic incidents in higher education, and the misinformation surrounding the effectiveness of socialism.

The Growing Fear Of A Widening War In The Middle East


Secretary of State Antony Blinken is set to meet with Saudi Arabia's foreign minister to address growing concerns that the brutal conflict in Israel could spread across the Middle East. The U.S. has been prioritizing efforts to ensure Iran stands down carrying out two 'self-defense' air strikes in response to several attacks on U.S. bases and personnel carried out by Iran-backed militia groups in recent weeks. On the Rundown, former U.S. National Security Advisor Stephen Hadley shares his response to how the Biden administration is working to avoid escalation in Israel, Hamas' ability to launch a surprise attack without intelligence agencies' knowledge, and his disappointment regarding the 'unacceptable' antisemitic movements that have sparked across the globe following the crisis in Israel, including here in the U.S. Last Wednesday, 40-year-old Robert Card shot and killed 18 people in Lewiston, Maine. A few months earlier, he had allegedly made threats to an army base and spent two weeks in an inpatient facility. The tragedy has sparked a conversation about whether or not the shooting could have been prevented. Dozens of states across the country have red flag laws that prevent individuals who show signs of being a threat to themselves or others from owning a firearm. Maine has a similar law, but law enforcement must be notified of the threat before putting the individual in protective custody.

The House Has A New Speaker. Now The Hard Work Begins


Congressman Mike Johnson (R-LA) was elected Speaker of the House on Wednesday. After 22 days, which included multiple votes, both publicly on the House floor and privately among the Republican conference, the House GOP coalesced around the four-term representative. Republican strategist and co-founder of South & Hill Strategies, Colin Reed, joins the Rundown to discuss how the last three weeks of the GOPs speaker election chaos in Congress have impacted the partys long-term prospects.

Americas Growing Mistrust In Media


Disinformation on social media has surged since the beginning of the Israel-Hamas war, with verified claims from American journalists being considered suspicious or denied altogether. This trend is in line with Americans plummeting trust in the media, which has reached a historic low according to a recent Gallup poll. Howard Kurtz, host of Media Buzz on the FOX News Channel and the Media Buzz Meter podcast, joins the Rundown to discuss how many media organizations failed to fact-check on the Gaza hospital explosion story, the impact hate has on the misinformation being spread, and why the media is partially to blame for rising distrust in news institutions. New reports indicate that North Korea allegedly provided weapons used during the Hamas attacks in Israel on October 7th. However, it remains unclear how and when the terrorists acquired them. Former CIA Deputy Division Chief for Korea and Senior Research Fellow for Northeast Asia at the Heritage Foundation, Bruce Klingner, tells the Rundown that the weapons could date back decades and that Russia may be receiving technology from them too.

Republicans Picking 'Populists' In Primary Race


The Fox News Power Rankings are out, and they paint a picture of the 2024 GOP presidential races as a competition between populist candidates and traditional conservatives. The latest FOX Business polls show former President Trump maintains a large lead in the race both in Iowa and South Carolina. As the next GOP primary debate is set to take place on September 27th, the FOX Business polls show that voters have thrown more support for former Ambassador Nikki Haley and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy since the first debate; however, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is still the number two in the race.

GOP Spending Fight Tests Speaker McCarthy's Leadership


To avoid a government shutdown, Congress has until the end of September to pass a new spending bill. Currently, House Republicans are unable to reach a consensus on defense spending and move forward with a proposed short-term solution. Speaker McCarthys proposed GOP plan included approximately 8 percent in budget cuts, allocating no money for military aid to Ukraine but did provide funds to bolster border security measures. A procedural vote on Tuesday effectively defeated the GOP plan, with Republican lawmakers fighting internally about where spending is most needed. One of the few naysayers, Republican Congressman Matt Rosendale (R-MT), joins the Rundown to share why he is not worried about the possibility of a shutdown and why he lobbied against the continuing resolution. Seventy percent of Americans say transgender athletes should only be allowed to compete in sports on teams that match their birth gender. The issue has stirred controversy across schools in the United States, with some parents of female athletes voicing opposition to what they see as an unfair advantage, while more liberal countries have had the community argue this backlash is LGBTQ+ discrimination. The debate has the Biden administration in a difficult spot, with Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre telling FBN there is no "yes or no answer" for this issue. Meanwhile, 2024 GOP candidate Nikki Haley has called this the "womens issue of our time," criticizing the Biden administration for allowing "biological men to compete in womens sports."

The Effort to End Human Trafficking


Yesterdays House Homeland Security Hearing on migration and the U.S. Border covered one border issue that, despite its severity, is not commonly spoken about. A startling number of migrants being brought across the southern border are being sold into human trafficking by the same cartels or illegal enterprises bringing them to the U.S. With few connections or ways to make money, this has led to many migrants being trapped, and lawmakers like New York Congressman Anthony DEsposito are determined to find solutions to fight this tragedy. On the Rundown, Rep. DEsposito discusses how migrants are being trafficked in every state across the U.S., not just those on the border, and why lawmakers must stop pointing fingers and instead focus on finding solutions to protect the border. He also speaks about how law enforcement agencies should be supported to ensure they can catch the criminals behind these heinous acts. An escaped prisoner from Chester County Prison was on the loose in Pennsylvania for nearly two weeks until he was captured by authorities on Wednesday. Convicted murderer, thirty-four-year-old, Danelo Cavalcante was taken into custody shortly after 8 a.m. when an aircraft using thermal technology finally led state police and U.S. Border agents to his location.

The Political Risks Of An Impeachment Inquiry


House Speaker Kevin McCarthy on Tuesday gave the go-ahead for an impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden, after facing increased pressure from conservatives in the House. The investigation will focus on whether or not the president benefitted from his son Hunter Biden's foreign business deals,whichhave been under federal investigation since 2018. GOP Pollster and member of the FOX News National Decision Team Daron Shaw breaks down the political risks that come with this inquiry, how it compares to impeachment fights of the past, and if this latest development opens the door to a serious third-party candidate. A new gun suspension order has New Mexicans up in arms, as they claim the ruling is a violation of Second Amendment rights. The temporary suspension, put in place by New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham was enacted under an emergency public health order, prompted by the recent fatal shootings of a 13-year-old girl and 11-year-old boy in recent months. Democrats and Republicans have criticized the ruling, claiming the suspension of open and concealed carry laws for Bernalillo County residents will not stop criminals from committing crimes but only prohibits law-abiding citizens from protecting themselves. On the Rundown, New Mexico State Representative John Block (R-51st District) discusses why this order unjustly violates constitutional rights, what complaints he's hearing from both Republicans and Democrats regarding the ruling, and why many believe this action could set back the creation of productive gun control laws.

Why The President Has His Party Worried


It was a busy week for President Biden, as he attended the G20 Summit in India and met with the Prime Minister of Vietnam in Hanoi. These trips come at a time when many Americans have been raising concerns about the Presidents age and ability to serve a second term. After the President was interrupted by White House Press Secretary Karine Jean Pierre during a press conference in Vietnam when he appeared to be trailing off 25 minutes in, many eyebrows continued being raised about the Presidents abilities. On the Rundown, FOX News Radio Political Analyst Josh Kraushaar joins to discuss recent polls showing both Democrat and Republican voters concerns about the Presidents age, how his recent public appearances raise questions about his strength as commander-in-chief and the impact this could have on persuadable voters in 2024. Yesterday marked 22 years since the attacks of 9/11. As the country held ceremonies to honor the heroes and remember the thousands killed, the mastermind of those attacks, Khalid Sheikh Mohammad and four other terror suspects remained detained at Guantanamo Bay with no trial in sight. With the case in limbo for years, many of the victims' families feel justice is being denied. Former Assistant US Attorney for the Southern District of New York and FOX News Contributor Andy McCarthy, who has prosecuted terrorists in the past, explains why getting to a trial has proven challenging, what a potential plea deal could look like, and whether he thinks the terrorists behind 9/11 will avoid the death penalty.

Rep. Malliotakis: Migrant Crisis "Will Destroy New York City" If Something Isn't Done.


Migrants continue flocking to major hubs like New York City despite there being little to no space left to house asylum seekers. The issue has gotten so severe that New York City Mayor Eric Adams claims the migrant surge "will destroy New York City" if they are not given proper funding and resources. As the migrant crisis leads to an estimated $12 billion budget deficit in NYC, many lawmakers are asking what it will take for President Biden to put this issue higher on his priority list. On the Rundown, New York Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis joins to discuss why she believes themayor'sactions have 'incentivized illegal immigration,' as opposed to preventing it and why allowing this is "a slap in the face" to the immigrants in New York City who did follow the legal process to live in the U.S. She also honors those who tragically lost their lives 22 years ago today on September 11th, 2001 and how the heinous attack committed on 9/11 continues impacting members of her community to this day. The COVID-19 pandemic shined a spotlight on remote education. But now that children have mostly returned to the classroom, schools are finding it increasingly difficult to staff teachers. The problem is so bad in some cases, districts across the country are reaching out to third-party companies to employ remote instructors to educate students from miles away. Susan Moore Johnson, research professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and Evan Erdberg, founder and former president of Proximity Learning Inc. join the Rundown to weigh the pros and cons of remote education and explain why schools are turning to this option more frequently than before.

Federal Prosecutors Seek To Indict Hunter Biden By End Of Month


Federal prosecutors announced they will seek an indictment of Hunter Biden by the end of September. Many believed the President's son would put a stop to his legal woes last month as he intended to take a plea deal for his misdemeanor tax charges and enter a diversion program for a separate felony gun charge. However, the plea agreement fell apart when a judge questioned several aspects of the deal, sending his legal team back to the drawing board. Nevertheless, Hunter may finally have his day in court, with U.S. special counsel David Weiss seeking a federal indictment. FOX News Sunday Anchor, Shannon Bream, joins the Rundown to break down the developments in the case, discuss President Biden's trip to India, and preview her interview with Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin (R-VA) this Sunday. Months ago, a jury found Alex Murdaugh guilty of two counts of murder for the nationally covered killings of his wife and son. On Tuesday, Alex Murdaugh's lawyers filed a motion for a new trial, citing compelling evidence of jury tampering in which the Colleton County clerk told the jury "not to believe a word Murdaugh says."

Sen. Cruz Wants To Slam The Brakes On President Bidens Green Agenda


As Democrats push their green energy policy goals, there has been a push for Americans to switch to electric vehicles. A new concern from Washington about electric vehicles is that many car manufacturers are contemplating removing AM radios from their electric cars and trucks.

China's Alarming Cloak-And-Dagger Espionage Campaign In America


First, there were spy balloons flying over the United States. Now, Chinese citizens posing as tourists are spying on American military bases. The Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Defense have reportedly tracked over 100 incidents of this in recent years, raising red flags that Beijing is using non-traditional means to gather intelligence on U.S. soil. However, many spies walk away with trespassing charges rather than espionage. As threats continue to rise, Congress is looking to enact legislation on the issue, but the Chinese Embassy in Washington, DC, says the allegations are ill-intentioned.

GOP Stars Are Rising, But Who Will Democrats Look To After Biden?


Plenty of focus is on the GOP presidential primary race, while President Biden has had very few campaign events for his 2024 presidential race. Only two candidates, neither holding elected office, have challenged the President for the Democratic nomination, but due to their low poll numbers, he will all but certainly remain his partys nominee. But who is President Bidens heir apparent in 2028? FOX News Radio political analyst Josh Kraushaar joins the Rundown to explain how 2024 is shaping up for both parties, which Democrats appear to be waiting in the wings for their shot at commander in chief in 2028, and how key political moments can make or break would-be candidates and create future stars in the political parties. For the first time since Chinese President Xi Jinping came into power in 2012, he will not attend this years annual G20 Summit in India. Though reports say China still plans to send their No. 2 leader, Premier Li Qiang Jinpings absence has raised eyebrows across the globe. Why would he miss out on representing China at one of the most influential gatherings of the year? Some wonder if the growth of India, where the Summit will be this year, and their growing relationship with the West may have led to China rebuffing the host country. Others voice concerns about what this could mean for the nations already fragile relationship with one of our top adversaries. On the Rundown, FOXs Senior Foreign Affairs Correspondent Greg Palkot joins Alex Hogan to discuss what messages he believes the Chinese President is sending via his absence, how this reflects Americas frosty relations with the country, and how concerned world leaders should be that China seems to be distancing itself from the other members of the G20.

Rep. Gonzales On Representing 800 Miles of the Border As Migrant Surge Continues


Surges of migrants continue coming to the U.S.-Mexico border in hopes of entry, leading to what many deem an ongoing border crisis, as border patrol agents struggle to control the border with limited resources & a surplus of immigrants coming daily. This has impacted every state in America, as critics claim a loose border allows for deadly drugs like fentanyl to make their way to the U.S. while large groups of migrants overwhelm small border towns and take buses or planes to sanctuary cities that have now run out of space. One district particularly impacted is Texas 23rd district which makes up 800 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border. On the Rundown, Congressman Tony Gonzales, who represents this district, joins to discuss how the border crisis continues impacting his constituents, why its up to Republican lawmakers in Congress to craft border legislation as the Biden administration neglects to do so, and what pathway he believes should be available to migrants wanting to enter the U.S. that is safe and efficient.

Shannon Bream: Moments Of Crisis, Spending Bills & Aging Politicians


President Biden and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis may be political adversaries, but theyve spent a great deal of time on the phone in recent days coordinating the disaster response to Hurricane Idalia. For the Biden administration, they are grappling with handling this disaster after receiving mixed public opinion on their response to last months deadly wildfire in Hawaii. Meanwhile, in Washington, the age of politicians is under scrutiny again after Senator McConnell appeared to freeze again in a press conference. FOX News Sunday anchor Shannon Bream joins the Rundown to explain how the disaster response efforts will demonstrate leaders ability to lead in a crisis, how NY Governor Kathy Hochul is pressing the Biden administration for resources as migrants overwhelm them, and how the McConnell situation has furthered concerns about aging politicians' fitness for office. Federal marijuana restrictions may soon be easing. The Department of Health and Human Services signaled this on Wednesday, issuing a new recommendation to reclassify the drug in the lower-risk category of Schedule III rather than its current status as a Schedule I drug. This move follows the political and social trend of legalization we have seen throughout the country in the past decade, with 23 states legalizing the drug for recreational use. The new recommendation will be reviewed by the DEA, but advocates have long pushed for this classification shift that would bolster the growing cannabis industry. Former FBI supervisory special agent Lance Leising explains what this means from a law enforcement perspective and how it sets the stage for national cannabis decriminalization down the road.

Gov. Youngkin Talks Strengthening Education: "Children Belong To Parents, Not States"


School districts across the U.S. are debating what policies to adopt when handling students who request to change their name or gender identity at school.

Rep. McCaul Talks Wagner Boss Suspicious Death & 2-Year Anniversary of Afghanistan Exit


Russian officials have confirmed that the chief of the Russian Wagner Group, Yevgeny Prigozhin, was among the ten people killed in a plane crash last week. This comes two months after Prigozhin led an insurrection against Russian President Vladimir Putin, leading many to believe it was an intentional hit by Putin, despite the Kremlin claiming otherwise. This week in the U.S., Americans honor the two-year anniversary of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan and the attack at the airport in Kabul that led to the death of 13 service members. The Gold Star families who lost loved ones continue calling for transparency & accountability from the White House, as many never learned how their loved ones passed or why the withdrawal ended in tragedy. On the Rundown, House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R-TX) explains how he is working with families to gain clarity & ensure similar disasters can be avoided. He also shares his thoughts on the fatal plane crash and why the claim that Prigozhins death was accidental is laughable. Cancer diagnoses among young Americans are on the rise. Many recent studies have found that for people under the age of 50, the rate of cancer diagnoses is going up, and despite zeroing in on this concerning trend, doctors are struggling to figure out why this is happening. One study looked at cancer diagnoses between 2010 and 2019 and found that people are approximately 15 percent more likely to be diagnosed with gastrointestinal cancers than they were a decade ago, thus making it the fastest-growing type of cancer amongst young people. FOX News Medical Contributor and Professor at NYU Langone Health, Dr. Marc Siegel, joins the Rundown to discuss possible causes for the spike, encourage Americans to start screening for cancer at a young age, and analyze the future of cancer treatment.

Extra: The Debate Over Decriminalizing Prostitution


Several states in America are rethinking prostitution. Or at least how to address those who are involved in it. For example, Maine's Governor Janet Mills recently signed a bill that will no longer make it a crime - for at least the adult offering sexual services. However, It would still be illegal to buy sex or be a pimp. And in New York state, lawmakers are also weighing a bill that would decriminalize 'sex work'. Not surprisingly, these bills have reignited the debate over how best local and state governments should address the 'world's oldest profession' and those whose lives are negatively affected by it. Earlier this month, New York Republican State Senator Anthony Palombo and Vice President of the National Center of Sexual Exploitation Eleanor Gaetan joined the FOX News Rundown's Lisa Brady to discuss the pros and cons of legalizing, decriminalizing, or over prosecuting prostitution.

While there were stand-out performances and memorable one-liners from many on the stage, particularly from some who had fallen behind in the polls like former Vice President Mike Pence and former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, there were also candidates with a lot to prove that left voters unimpressed.

Why The GOP Debate Will Be All About Who Can Sway Swing Voters


Candidates making up the crowded 2024 GOP field have a crucial opportunity to set themselves apart and gain favor from voters during this week's debate -- but how will they do so? Will they go after former President Donald Trump, regardless of whether he makes an appearance, or focus more on convincing voters why they must get President Joe Biden out of the White House, offering a more hopeful view of the future?

To break it all down, former White House speechwriter and Fox News Contributor Marc Thiessen joins the Rundown to discuss why winning over independent & swing voters could be key to securing the nomination, how President Trump's legal battles could work both against him and in his favor simultaneously, and his predictions on which candidates could end up surprising viewers most during Wednesday's debate.

What's So Special About A Special Counsel?


Attorney General Merrick Garland announced Friday that he was appointing a special counsel to further the investigation into Hunter Biden; however, who he chose to lead the charge left many raising eyebrows. David Weiss, a principal figure in the Hunter Biden case, will be conducting the probe, though due to his past involvement in the investigation and the role he played in negotiating Hunter's "sweetheart" plea deal, many Republicans have criticized this move. Attorney Sol Wisenberg, who served as former Deputy Independent Counsel in the Whitewater and President Clinton investigations, joins the Rundown to discuss why he does not support Weiss leading the special counsel due to his previous actions in the investigation, the likelihood of Hunter Biden facing an indictment, and why President Biden himself could also face special counsel in the future. Five Americans in custody in Iran may soon have a chance at freedom, as the United States is negotiating a tentative deal for their release, but it is not without its drawbacks. In return, Iran wants the U.S. to approve the release of nearly $6 billion in assets frozen by American sanctions. Additionally, Iran would receive some Iranians imprisoned in America as well. This deal would come at a time in which many national security experts in the nation are wary of Irans ambitions for nuclear power, and some warn that approving the unfreezing of assets would be akin to paying ransom to Tehran. FOX News Chief National Security Correspondent Jennifer Griffin has spoken to the families of those imprisoned and government sources who are negotiating for these Americans freedom. She joins the podcast to break down the terms of the deal and the dangerous precedent it may set. Plus, commentary by Fox Nation host Tammy Bruce. Learn more about your ad choices.

As Iowa Takes Center Stage, Which Candidates Are Shining?


As China remains a prominent threat, families continue to face economic woes, and President Bidens approval ratings keep dropping in the polls, it has become clear that many Americans may be ready for a change of leadership in 2024. As many Republican candidates step up to hopefully become the partys next presidential nominee, they must first take a trip on the campaign trail to attract voters. One of their first, and most important, stops is Iowa and as many GOP candidates make their way across the state to meet voters, its already becoming evident which candidates are standing out & who may be falling behind. On the Rundown, Congresswoman Ashley Hinson (R-IA) discusses the first impressions candidates have been making on her constituents & what qualities Iowans want in a President. She also discusses how the Chinese Communist Party is targeting Americas food security as they attempt to steal seeds & agricultural technology in her state and why she believes Bidenomics is a complete & total sham as she continues seeing families struggle. Engaging in prostitution will soon no longer be a crime in Maine, becoming the first state to partially decriminalize it with one major caveat: it will still be illegal to buy sex. Now in New York, state lawmakers are also weighing a bill that would go even further with full decriminalization, but it has reignited debate over whether this is a step in the right direction. New York Republican State Senator Anthony Palombo and Vice President of the National Center of Sexual Exploitation Eleanor Gaetan join the podcast to explain what action the government should be taking and why full decriminalization could do more harm than good for sex trafficking victims.

Extra: Why Chinas Rare Earth Dominance Is A National Security Threat


The push for electric cars, and even wind and solar energy requires critical minerals like Lithium, nickel, cobalt, manganese and graphite. Rare earth elements are essential for both common items we already on, but for technology we may be reliant on in the future. America has access to some of these key resources, but China continues to dominate the critical mineral market. After serving as the Governor of Texas, Rick Perry served as the Energy Secretary during the Trump administration. Sec. Perry joined host Jessica Rosenthal recently on the FOX News Rundown: From Washington podcast to discuss the importance of these minerals and the need for American to be the leader in the market. He also discussed not just the need for more mining in America, but why becoming energy independent is critical to the country's success and security. Due to time limitations, we could not include our entire conversations in the FOX News Rundown: From Washington segment that ran last week.

From Washington: If Not President Biden, Then Who?


President Biden turns 81 this November and many pundits are raising concerns over his age and ability to govern. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Marianne Williamson have already thrown their names in the ring as potential contenders against the sitting President, with many Democrat insiders passing around California Governor Gavin Newsom as a viable alternative.Co-Host ofThe Five, and Democratic Strategist Jessica Tarlovjoins to discuss the possibilities she sees for a legitimate contender to rise up against President Biden, how having former President Trump as the Republican nominee would impact the 2024 Election, and why she believes it is fair for voters to question the President's abilities given his age.

One senator has been the gatekeeper in holding up the Senate approvals, Alabama Republican Tommy Tuberville.

Extra: Americans Are Losing Trust In The U.S. Military. Why?


Americans' confidence in the military is at its lowest level in over two decades. Military recruitment has been suffering as well, with the Army, Air Force, and Navy each expecting to fall short of their recruitment goals this year. These troubling trends come at a time of growing tensions with China grow, as well as increased instability in multiple regions around the world.

This weekend, Republican presidential candidates made their way to the Hawkeye State for the annual Iowa State Fair. Although many candidates seized the opportunity to sit down with Governor Kim Reynolds for a 'Fairside Chat' to share their platform with voters, former President Trump declined a sit down with her.

Could A Judge Soon Censor President Trump?


The judge presiding over the special counsels case against former President Trump has a big decision loomingwhether or not a protective order will be issued in this case, which will determine what evidence can be publicly shared. Special counsel Jack Smiths prosecutorial team requested this, arguing that the case must be tried in a courtroom, not in the media. Trump and his legal team, on the other hand, argue that this is an assault on his First Amendment rights and would silence the former President on the 2024 campaign trail. On the Rundown, FOX News Sunday anchor Shannon Bream explains the dispute about a potential protective order that would stop former President Trump from publicly sharing evidence, the unprecedented circumstances of the case, and why state battles over abortion rights have only just begun. Shoplifting videos have recently been going viral, displaying groups of thieves storming stores or boldfaced shoppers stealing expensive items in broad daylight. In the era of social media, it seems like shoplifting has become somewhat of a trend, leaving stores in major cities across America hurting. Despite many locking up merchandise or putting sensors on items, the problem remains one of increasing importance. So why has retail theft become so prominent in the U.S., and what can retailers do to stop it? Gerald Storch, the founder and CEO of Storch Advisors, joins the FOX News Rundown to discuss how factors like social media and organized crime are contributing to rises in retail theft.

What The Hunter Biden Bank Docs Reveal


The House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer released a memo detailing evidence of the Biden familys foreign business dealings, including redacted bank records which the GOP claims will reveal millions of dollars in payment to Hunter Biden from Russian and Kazakhstani oligarchs. House Oversight says they believe they can tie the folks contributing millions to Hunters businesses abroad to President Biden himself. Congressman Pat Fallon (R-TX) argues there is a concerning pattern with Hunter Bidens business dealings and says he believes eventually the evidence will uncover a massive political scandal. On the Rundown, Rep. Fallon explains what Hunter Bidens bank documents reveal, the Democrats response to them, and the continued search for a smoking gun in this investigation. Earlier this week, voters in an Ohio special election rejected a measure that would have made it more difficult to change the state's constitution. The current system required a simple majority to make amendments; however, the defeated GOP-backed measure had proposed raising the threshold to a 60 percent supermajority. Many pundits and pro-choice activists warned that if passed, this would severely curtail Ohioans' ability to pass the abortion rights amendment scheduled for a state ballot initiative in November. While the vote is still months away, this sets the stage for Ohio voters to codify abortion rights. On the podcast, Kyle Kondik, Managing Editor at Sabatos Crystal Ball, breaks down why this special election was indirectly a vote on abortion rights, why this Republican-backed measure was defeated, and how this will affect Ohioans on the November ballot.

"A Complete National Security Crisis": Cartels, Smugglers and The Border Surge


Border crossings slowed down this past spring after the United States prepared for a surge following the end of Title 42. However, the numbers are on the rise again this summer, climbing nearly 30% in July. Texas Governor Gregg Abbott (R-TX) has taken matters into his own hands by installing a floating border made up of buoys and razor wire along the Rio Grande in an effort to stop migrants from wading through the water. The Justice Department is suing Texas over this citing that it violates the Rivers and Harbors Appropriation Act of 1899. FOX News National Correspondent, Bill Melugin, takes the Rundown to the southern border to discuss cartel members caught on camera entering the U.S. and why migrant numbers are rising again, even in the excessive heat. Americans' confidence in the military is at its lowest level in over two decades. Military recruitment has been suffering as well, with the Army, Air Force, and Navy each expecting to fall short of their recruitment goals. The Afghanistan withdrawal that saw 13 U.S. service members lose their lives was an event that shook public faith in the military, and this week Congressman Darrell Issa held a congressional forum with the Gold Star families who lost loved ones in this chaotic withdrawal, where they demanded accountability from the Biden administration. Florida Congressman Michael Walz is a retired Green Beret colonel of the U.S. Special Forces, and he joins the Rundown to explain how the chaotic Afghanistan withdrawal has hurt confidence in the military, why military recruitment has hit a record low in the U.S., and how America should work to combat Russian and Chinese aggression.

The GOP Field Is Playing Catch Up


In poll after poll, the majority of voters say they do not want a Biden-Trump rematch in 2024; however, the beginning stages of the campaign suggest that is what Americans may be in for. Despite the deep bench of qualified Republicans, former President Trump continues to command the GOP primary race and mainstream news cycle with his latest indictment. Meanwhile, President Biden has continued touring the U.S., touting his economic accomplishments that the White House has branded Bidenomics. Co-director of the Fox News Poll and professor at the University of Texas at Austin, Daron Shaw, joins the Rundown to explain what lanes exist for GOP primary candidates as the former President maintains strong support, how the Hunter Biden situation could threaten President Bidens favorability advantage in the election, and how social issues are throwing a wrench in 2024 campaigns. Following the pandemic and the start of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, Americans have been feeling pain at the pump, with gas prices reaching record highs. However, there are new factors contributing to the ever-frequent price hikes, like the summer's extreme heat waves, which caused refinery breakdowns and equipment failures. On the Rundown, Phil Flynn, an oil trader and FOX Business Network contributor, discusses why the Biden administration's release of barrels from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve was only a short-term solution, why electric vehicles aren't a realistic option for working-class Americans, and shares why people think the rise in prices is unexpected due to the Department of Energy underreporting oil demand for the past six months.

The Hunter Biden drama continues for the White House and the Biden 2024 campaign. The president's son pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor tax evasion charges last week.

Rep. Jordan explained why he's troubled by Joe Biden's actions and what it would it take to move forward with impeachment.

Extra: Is Our Democracy In A 'Perilous place'?


Former President Donald Trump entered a Washington, D.C. federal court this Thursday and pleaded not guilty to four criminal charges related to January 6th and his attempt to overthrow the 2020 presidential election. Trump called it, 'a sad day for America.' A major presidential candidate has never before faced so many legal troubles. But despite being arraigned three times in the last four months, and another indictment from Georgia likely coming, Trump remains the clear GOP frontrunner in the 2024 presidential race. But the question remains if Trump can maintain his lead in the polls as he navigates court dates and could even potentially go to jail before election day. Former White House Press Secretary and FOX News Contributor Ari Fleischer joined the Rundown's Dave Anthony earlier this week to discuss former President Trump's legal problems and what he called 'uncharted territory" for America. Fleischer explained how these cases will impact the 2024 election, why the charges are only fueling Trump's supporters, and why the uncertainty of what could happen in the coming months puts our democracy in a 'perilous place'.

Hunter Biden, President Joe Biden's youngest son, has been subject to a federal investigation since 2018 for his foreign business practices. After pleading not guilty to two misdemeanor tax charges last month, Devon Archer, Biden's former business partner, told congressional investigators that Hunter would tout the Biden 'brand and often have then-Vice President Biden speak on business phone calls.

2024 Race Enters Uncharted Territory


Former President Donald Trump continues to make history as he faces a third federal indictment, this time on charges to overturn the results of the 2020 election and the January 6th attack on the Capitol. Experts are saying the latest criminal counts are the most severe yet. Juggling several different criminal cases is a difficult task, especially for someone campaigning for a second term in the White House. Former White House Press Secretary and FOX News Contributor Ari Fleischer joins the Rundown to explain how these cases will impact the 2024 election, why the charges are only fueling Trump's supporters, and why being absent from primary debates may set a bad precedent for future candidates. The 106,000 overdose deaths due to opioids in 2021 were outpaced in 2022; dangerous fentanyl and other black-market drugs threaten to kill a record number of Americans in 2023 if this trend is not addressed. The White House says they are accelerating their efforts to combat overdose deaths and fentanyl being trafficked into the country. Dr. Rahul Gupta is the head of the Biden administration's Office of National Drug Control Policy, and he says they have launched new programs to crack down on the illegal spread of opioids from the border and to expand Americans' access to an over-the-counter nasal spray to save potential overdose victims. Dr. Gupta joins the Rundown to explain why the White House's reinvigorated efforts to fight the opioid crisis will be effective and what must be done about all the fentanyl that is already in the U.S. Plus, commentary from former California State Assemblyman and vice president of the Texas Public Policy Foundation, Chuck DeVore.

Jack Smith's Biggest Challenge Convicting President Trump


On Monday, a Mar-a-Lago employee made his first court appearance in Miami, Florida, after being accused of carrying out orders from the former president to destroy security footage. The former President stands accused of attempting to hide this from investigators looking into his mishandling of classified documents. The estate's property manager, Carlos De Oliveira, is the second Trump employee named in the case, alongside Walt Nauta, Trump's long-time valet, who is facing charges for allegedly moving boxes full of classified documents at least five times. FOX News Contributor and law professor at George Washington University, Jonathan Turley, joins the Rundown to discuss how the new charges will impact the case as it moves forward, what would happen if the trial were pushed to after the election, and why Trump would be unable to pardon himself if elected to a second term.

Opioid Crisis Continues: A New 'Zombie Drug' Getting Laced Into Fentanyl


A new Narcan-resistant drug is being mixed into the already dangerous synthetic opioid fentanyl. The CDC has been tracking the concerning trend and found that xylazine, or "tranq," has become increasingly common in overdose deaths across the United States. In fact, according to the Drug Enforcement Administration, this animal tranquilizer with grotesque side effects is the deadliest drug threat our country has ever faced. New York City Special Narcotics Prosecutor Bridget Brennan joins to explain why xylazine overdose victims are often nearly impossible to save, how the sedative emerged as such a prominent threat, and what solutions government authorities should be looking at to stop the rapid spread of this drug.

Extra: Police Officer Turned Congressman On The Fight To Better Fund Law Enforcement


Ever since the death of George Floyd in May of 2020, policing has been in the spotlight, and there have been calls for the profession to change its practices and policies.

GOP Floats Biden Impeachment. Will It Fly With Voters?


House Republicans are now floating the idea of impeaching President Joe Biden over unproven claims of financial misconduct. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy first made the comments on Tuesday at the Capitol, where he stated the committees would continue their investigations. An impeachment probe could possibly throw a wrench into the 2024 election because such an investigation could take as long or as little time as the House chooses.

Hunter Biden Heads To Court


President Joe Biden's youngest son, Hunter Biden, is expected to plead guilty to two misdemeanor counts of tax evasion on Wednesday in Wilmington, Delaware. Hunter Biden has been the subject of a federal investigation since 2018 for his foreign business practices, and Republican lawmakers argue that the Department of Justice has given the president's son special treatment during the investigation. One example they point to is the fact that Hunter Biden has already reached a pretrial agreement for a felony gun charge for possessing a firearm while addicted to drugs. On the Rundown, Andrew McCarthy, FOX News Contributor and former Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, explains why Hunter Biden wasn't charged with a felony, shares why he thinks the President's son received preferential treatment, and compares the investigation to the Hillary Clinton email scandal. Artificial intelligence has grown increasingly popular as Americans incorporate programs like ChatGPT and facial recognition into their everyday lives. AI uses are countless, and law enforcement is using the tool as well. Police are finding new ways to utilize artificial intelligence and facial recognition for "predictive policing," which uses AI to analyze crime patterns, police body camera footage, and surveillance footage to predict and solve crimes. Though many are optimistic this could be helpful, some Americans are worried it could lead to privacy concerns or wrongful arrests. On the Rundown, Heritage Foundation Tech Policy research associate Jake Denton joins to discuss why "oversight and transparency" are key to assuring AI is used responsibly, the science behind how the technology could catch criminals, and the potential shortfalls that could come with relying on it too heavily in an investigation.

"Cover-up": Why Some In Congress Are Taking UFOs Very Seriously


Several whistleblowers have come forward claiming that the U.S. government is covering up the existence of UFOs. This Wednesday, the House Oversight Committee will conduct a hearing investigating the implications of unidentified anomalous phenomena on national security, public safety, and government transparency.

Burchett joins the Rundown to explain how this week's hearing will open the doors for future investigations, share why he thinks the Pentagon should open up about the existence of UFOs, and preview the testimonies expected in the hearing.

Extra: Suffolk County DA Details How They Caught The Gilgo Beach Serial Killer Suspect


For more than a decade, the country has been intrigued by the mysterious and brutal murders known as the Gilgo Beach serial killings. Intrigue turned to shock and relief earlier this month, when the authorities announced the arrest of a suspect. The story begins back in 2010 when human remains were found on Gilgo beach, Long Island New York. Law enforcement found the remains of Melissa Barthelemy, and then Amber Lynn Costello, Megan Waterman and Maureen Brainard-Barnes... all of them women in their 20s working as escorts. Six other bodies were also found, but the investigation ran dry for years. Until now. 59-year-old Rex Heuermann is now in custody linked to 3 of those killings. One big break came when law enforcement matched his DNA from a leftover pizza crust he tossed out to a hair found on a victim. Heuermann says he's innocent. Days after the arrest, Suffolk Country District Attorney Ray Tierney, who ran the task force which eventually identified Heuermann, join FOX News' Alex Hogan on the FOX News Rundown to discuss how police caught the accused serial killer.

But what do voters think of all this? Pollster and President of Maslansky + Partners, Lee Carter, joins the Rundown to explain what the polls tell us about the impact of these probes and Oversight hearings on Americans' 2024 votes.

How Much And For How Long. The Debate Over Ukraine Aid


Defense spending and support for Ukraine were the major topics of discussion for NATO leaders. Member nations refused to admit Ukraine into the alliance now that they remain at war with Russia; however, Moscow's invasion has forced NATO to get more serious about making sure each country is spending 2 percent of its GDP on military defense. At the summit, President Biden reassured Americans that America and its Western allies will continue to support Ukraine's military, but a few U.S. lawmakers are concerned about exactly how long that may take, questioning the established bipartisan support for Ukraine in the form of funding and weapons. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) joins to explain why he is hesitant to support Ukraine with American tax dollars and where he believes that money could be better spent. Later, Senator Dan Sullivan (R-AK) joins to explain why security in Europe is important for the United States and what the administration could be doing to end the war faster.

From Washington: Could The Democrats' Supreme Court Setbacks Boost Them In 2024?


Democrats are gearing up for the 2024 elections, hoping they can use some recent legal losses at the Supreme Court to fire up their base and target Republicans in vulnerable seats. Last month, the High Court voted to strike down both affirmative action in college admissions and President Biden's student loan debt relief plan. Last year, the party was able to successfully use the overturning of Roe vs. Wade to rally voters and prevent a 'red wave' in the midterms.

Before Congressman Pete Stauber (R-MN) was on Capitol Hill, he was a police officer laying his life on the line to protect his community. With a unique perspective as former law enforcement and now legislator, Rep. Stauber joins the Rundown to explain how politics are driving people away from the law enforcement profession, why he has fought to keep qualified immunity in any crime or policing bills, and his optimism that bipartisan crime legislation is possible. But first, President Joe Biden traveled to South Carolina on Thursday to tout his economic accomplishments and further his Bidenomics agenda ahead of the 2024 election. Recent polling shows that President Biden's overall approval rating has steadily declined since April 2021; however, the administration is using the visit to gain traction in the red state, as South Carolina is the first on the 2024 presidential primary calendar. FOX News Sunday anchor Shannon Bream joins the podcast to explain the President's strategy leading up to the election, how former President Trump is using his legal troubles to boost his campaign, and why some are calling for politicians to limit their contact with social media companies.

Whats Next For Student Loan Debt?


America's Crime Crisis: Over the holiday weekend, the country saw mass shootings occur in Baltimore, Fort Worth, and Philadelphia, displaying a dangerous and concerning trend when it comes to violence in Americas cities. Since the summer of 2020, across the country, law enforcement has seen their policing practices come under strict scrutiny, facing calls for more body cameras, removing qualified immunity, and defunding the police. But as violence continues to impact urban communities, how can we keep the streets safe for Americans? Former NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly knows what it takes to manage crime in a big city, and he says that being a police officer and battling crime have only gotten harder since he was in charge. He joins the Rundown to discuss what policing tactics he would bring back, how crime has changed over the years, and what solutions from law enforcement are proving effective. But first, last week, the Supreme Court ruled against President Joe Biden's student loan forgiveness program, prompting the administration to develop a Plan B. The Saving on Valuable Education (SAVE) plan revamps the current student loan regulations and offers no penalties for missing a payment. However, the President says those who can afford to make payments should, and that the SAVE plan is not a replacement for the pause. On the Rundown, Beth Akers, Senior Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, shares why students should be more strategic when choosing schools, breaks down the next steps for borrowers, and explains why the higher education system gets away with charging such high tuition.

Are America's Best Days Behind Us? Americans May Say Yes, Rep. Issa Says No.


Its been a busy week in Washington, D.C., with the Supreme Court announcing some of the most highly anticipated rulings of the year. The Courts decision to block President Bidens $400 billion student loan forgiveness plan and end affirmative action in college admissions received mixed feedback across the country as many Democrats voiced their disapproval of the decisions, while the GOP has shown support of the Court. Also in the headlines is new information on the Hunter Biden case. As IRS whistleblowers make further allegations of politicization and misconduct by the DOJ, many Republicans are calling for a freeze on the younger Bidens plea deal until these claims are investigated. On the Rundown, California Congressman Darrell Issa joins to explain why he supports the Supreme Courts decisions and how their ruling reflects where liberal California has been for two decades.

Extra: Combating China's Desire Be The World's Dominant Superpower


There's strong consensus among political and military officials that China is the most comprehensive threat facing the United States today. The two nations' relationship has been deteriorating for many years, and tensions only escalated after a Chinese spy balloon was spotted flying across the U.S. earlier this year. During his trip to Beijing last month, Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Chinese representatives agreed to stabilize the ties between both countries and maintain better communication. Retired Four-Star General, Chairman of the Institute for the Study of War, and FOX News Senior Strategic Analyst General Jack Keane recently joined host Dave Anthony to explain how China continues to try and become the dominant world power, and the tactics they're using to undermine us. Gen. Keane also discussed the likelihood China would go to war with Taiwan in the near future, how the U.S. could respond, and the national security implications of China's presence in the Indo-Pacific. Due to time limitations, we could not include the entire conversation in the FOX News Rundown segment that ran this week. On the FOX News Rundown Extra, you will hear our entire unedited interview with FOX News Senior Strategic Analyst General Jack Keane and learn more about our volatile relationships with China and how America can continue to remain the world's most dominant power.
