Episode Date
September 30th, 2022. Putin to Claim His Currently Occupied Territory in Ukraine as a Permanent Part of Russia.
1206
It’s September 30th. You’re listening to the President’s Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ It’s Friday and we’ve got a Big Five Update. Five critical updates on stories we’ve covered previously that are shaping America — and the world. First, some big developments in our War of Attrition. Vladimir Putin is annexing land in Ukraine, and that means hopes for peace are growing very dim.   Second, prescription drug makers in Europe are warning that they will likely end production because of electricity prices. Third, insurance rates for electric vehicles are going up, in part because those cars tend to start on fire more often than gas-fueled cars. Fourth, Joe Biden’s student debt forgiveness plan is in trouble, I’ll share why. And finally, some good news for both kids and adults who put down their phones and get outside to exercise. Plus, we’ve got a listener question about finding common ground with folks who believe in Climate Change. ------ Please remember to subscribe if you enjoyed this episode of the President's Daily Brief.

1447
It’s September 29th. You’re listening to the President’s Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ We’ve got a Special Edition of the PDB today. Some important news in the Battle for the Pacific — which is our long-running series on whether China or the United States will win the battle for influence amongst the many island nations of the North and South Pacific. I’m doing this Special because the leaders of 14 of those island nations are in DC this morning, wrapping up a two day summit with Joe Biden and other Administration officials.  So today we are going to take a trip to the Pacific and we’re going to explore where America is winning where we’re losing and what we can do to strengthen our position in case war ever comes. And, as always, I’ll respond to a listener question. Today it’s about how close we might be to a nuclear war with Russia. ------ Please remember to subscribe if you enjoyed this episode of the President's Daily Brief.

1245
It’s September 28th. You’re listening to the President’s Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ We have a case of international mystery and intrigue this morning. Somebody blew up two pipelines / in the Baltic Sea, and it may be connected the War in Ukraine. I’ve got a full readout coming up. As always, I’m keeping an eye out for developing stories. Put these two on your radar. First, Europe is placing a big order for solar panels. Unfortunately, those solar panels are made by slaves in China. Second, Joe Biden is once again blaming gas stations for high gas prices. He is wrong, of course. And I’ll give you the facts to explain why. As always, we’ve got a listener question. Today it’s about the protests in the country of Iran. ------ Please remember to subscribe if you enjoyed this episode of the President's Daily Brief.

1320
It’s September 27th. You’re listening to the President’s Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ The White House said something remarkable last week about China buying farm-ground near sensitive military bases. Joe Biden’s spokesman dismissed the concern, calling it a “home ownership” issue unworthy of his time. So we’ll discuss that statement, explore the facts, and let you decide. As always, I’m keeping an eye out for developing stories. Put these two on your radar. First, the official price tag is out for the Biden Administration’s student loan forgiveness plan. I’ve got that number plus a reminder that most borrowers say they don’t need the assistance. Second, an update on the War in Ukraine — specifically whether Russian men are fleeing their country to avoid being forced into service. And, of course, we’ve got a listener’s question, today from Blaine in Nebraska, who wrote in wondering if he’s the only one worried about gas and groceries, not climate change. ------ Please remember to subscribe if you enjoyed this episode of the President's Daily Brief.

Third, a study out of California is showing that the sun doesn’t shine at night and that could be a problem for electric vehicles. Fourth, an update on the possible rail-road strike and how politics are likely shaping the final agreement.

I’ve got those details — plus three things that you should be watching for. As always, I’m keeping an eye out for developing stories. Put these two on your radar. First, some bad news for Dirty Green Energy. An industrial battery in California caught on fire, a highway shut down, people locked inside their homes. Some important lessons, coming up.  Second, the Biden Administration committed $200M to Central American countries yesterday for humanitarian purposes.

Five critical updates on stories we’ve covered previously that are shaping America — and the world.

As always, I’m keeping an eye out for developing stories. Put these two on your radar. First, a Wheat War update. We’ve got some cranky farmers in Europe, claiming Ukraine’s wheat and corn are flooding their market — not poor countries abroad. Second, you’ve probably seen the headlines about Martha’s Vineyard and the immigration debate. We’ve got a fresh poll out that shows whether the American people support what the Republicans are doing. And finally, the last thing before I let you go.

1580
It’s September 15th. You’re listening to the President’s Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ We’ve got the final brief today on Dirty Green — that’s this week’s series on whether renewable energy is as green as proponents say or, instead, if it’s full of dirty secrets.  Today we’re talking batteries. And I mean everything from the refiners, the manufacturers, and what happens when these specialized batteries stop working. Here’s a hint: they’re starting fires and causing over a $1B dollars in damages. That’s coming up. As always, I’m keeping an eye out for developing stories. Put this one on your radar. The pending rail-road strike is one day closer to happening. It’s an hour by hour cliff hanger, and I’ve got the latest, including how Queen Elizabeth’s funeral could throw a monkey wrench into solving the crisis. ------ Please remember to subscribe if you enjoyed this episode of the President's Daily Brief.

It’s September 14th. You’re listening to the President’s Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ Joe Biden is slated to be in Michigan today, celebrating electric vehicles and green energy. But what he probably won’t be celebrating are all the Dirty Green secrets buried inside those cars, secrets that the PDB is sharing all this week. Today we’re talking about perhaps the dirtiest secret of all: mining for the minerals that go into the batteries that fuel the dirty green revolution. That’s coming up. As always, I’m keeping an eye out for developing stories. Put this one on your radar. We’ve got a potential rail-road strike to talk about, and it could make our bad inflation much, much worse. And finally, the last thing before I let you go.

1454
It’s September 13th. You’re listening to the President’s Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ It’s day two of this week’s series called Dirty Green — we’re asking whether renewable energy is really green or instead there are environmental and national security costs that people would rather we not discuss. Yesterday we talked about Dirty Solar. And my goodness it is dirty.  Today we’re talking wind energy. And we have got some dirt to discuss. That’s coming up. As always, I’m keeping an eye out for developing stories. Put these two on your radar. First, an update on last week’s story out of California and the new law increasing Fast Food workers minimum wage to $22 an hour. Second, most Americans want less immigration. That’s the finding of a new poll from Gallup. We’ll discuss it. And finally, the last thing before I let you go.

It’s September 12th. You’re listening to the President’s Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ For years we’ve heard about dirty oil, dirty coal, and dirty natural gas. All dirty because of their environmental record, plus their tie to foreign dictators.  Well today begins a five part series on Dirty Green. We’ll explore the debate of whether renewable energy is really the picture of purity that we are so often told or whether there are dirty secrets to the environment and connections to dictators abroad. Today, we kick off the series exploring solar panels. That’s coming up. As always, I’m keeping an eye out for developing stories. Put this one on your radar. An important update on the War of Attrition in Ukraine — one about recent battles, and a second about a $60B bill that you’re going to have to pay. And finally, the last thing before I let you go.

1660
It’s September 6th. You’re listening to the President’s Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ Today is a Special Edition of the PDB. All because of a protest in Europe. Last Saturday, about 70,000 people in the Czech Republic gathered to protest the war in Ukraine and their outrage at higher electricity prices stemming from the war.  It is the first time we’ve seen something of this magnitude over the War of Attrition — which of course is the battle between Russia, Ukraine, and the West.  Today we’re going to talk about this first big protest in the Czech Republic, plus another one planned in Germany, and then explore how bad things are really getting inside of Europe. As always, we’ll talk about why this is so important to us — even though it’s thousands of miles away. And of course I’ve also got a response to a listener question before we end the podcast.  ------ Please remember to subscribe if you enjoyed this episode of the President's Daily Brief.

But not one group of workers they’re 6,000 miles away in China, toiling in fields and factories by force. We’ll discuss what we know, how it got this bad, and what we might do to help. As always, I’m keeping an eye out for developing stories. Put these two on your radar.

Second, Mexican workers in the US are sending money back home in record amounts — over $5B just last month. And finally, the last thing before I let you go.

The Main Brief today and all week is chosen by you — things we’ve discussed before but updated with new information, new data, and fresh analysis. First, there was a random shooting in Bend, Oregon on Monday — the attacker killed two people before killing himself. And his story is like so many before — a young man falling into violence.

As always, I’m keeping an eye out for developing stories. Put these two on your radar. First, an update on the Battle for the South Pacific. More trouble in the Solomon Islands this morning.

The Main Brief today and all week is chosen by you — things we’ve discussed before but updated with new information, new data, and fresh analysis. First, we are back at the ringside fight between Russia and Ukraine. Last week we used a boxing analogy to try to understand the punches being thrown, with one by America and Europe aimed at Russia’s economy. We’re of course talking about the economic sanctions. So how did that punch land? Is Russia on the economic ropes? We’ll discuss the data, plus a reminder of why this story is so important to you and your family. As always, I’m keeping an eye out for developing stories. Put these two on your radar. First, some California solar panels that just might be a win-win for everybody. Second, North Korea’s leader has COVID. That could mean bad news for our men and women in uniform. Finally, we wrap up the podcast with a question from a listener. This one about how much compassion we should have for illegal migrants. ------ Please remember to subscribe if you enjoyed this episode of the President's Daily Brief.

The Main Brief today and all week is chosen by you — things we’ve discussed before but updated with new information, new data, and fresh analysis. SO, FIRST UP THIS MORNING,  Governments around the world want to stop climate change by slaughtering cows or taxing them out of existence. That was a story from New Zealand that I brought you in early June. Since then, we’re seeing the same thing in The Netherlands and Ireland as well. So we’ll talk about what’s going on globally, why you should care. As always, I’m keeping an eye out for developing stories. Put these two on your radar. Ukraine is punching back against the Russians this morning. We’ve got two related radar briefs. First, Russia is releasing their natural gas into the atmosphere rather than sell it to Europe. I’ve got those details. Second, the European people are preparing for a very cold winter without Russian natural gas. I’ll share their plans to keep warm. And, as always, a question from a listener. It has to do with the CIA and who’s a better driver: men or women. Oh boy. ------ Please remember to subscribe if you enjoyed this episode of the President's Daily Brief.

1253
It’s August 26th. You’re listening to the President’s Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ Welcome to a special edition of the PDB this morning: a Big Five Update for you. Five critical updates on stories we’ve covered previously that are shaping America — and the world. First, there’s a very bad drought and heat wave in China it’s getting worse. Odds are you will feel the effects here in America too. I’ll explain.   Second, some very good news in the Wheat Wars. The amount of Ukrainian grain getting to market hit a very important number. I’ll share it with you. Third, Mexico just arrested 150 police officers for working for a Mexican cartel. I’ll explain the latest. Fourth, California is banning the sale of gas powered cars. I’ll tell you exactly how it’s going to work — and when it starts. Finally, an update on the Battle for the South Pacific. A Prime Minister is paying off his political opponents with a slush fund full of Chinese cash. Plus, one more thing before I let you go. A personal request for what I think is going to be a very fun week starting Monday. ------ Please remember to subscribe if you enjoyed this episode of the President's Daily Brief.

August 25th, 2022. Special Brief: The Fight in Ukraine.
1420
It’s August 25th. You’re listening to the President’s Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ Welcome to this Special Edition of the PDB. This week marks the six month anniversary of war in Ukraine. We have seen so many twists and turns, so many developments, that it’s been overwhelming at times. And maybe that’s why polls show Americans are kind of losing interest.  A mid-July Fox News poll showed 69% of us were concerned about Russia’s invasion, but that’s down from 82% in March. In terms of overall concern, the issue of Ukraine ranked sixth of eight issues tested. But it’s still a major story, with one clear reason: it’s costing you billions of dollars — at least $13.5B so far. To give you a sense of how shocking that is, when we were fighting in Afghanistan in 2019, we committed around $5B. Again, $13.5B for one year in Ukraine, $5B in Afghanistan. Plus, there’s a very real concern that this war could escalate and cause us to fight a much bigger war with a nuclear-armed Russian. That would mean your friends and neighbors would be involved in the most horrifying battle that the globe has ever seen. So, we are going to remind ourselves of this complicated story this morning. We’re going to do a recap of the past six months. But don’t worry, I’m going to use an analogy to help us through it. This is going to be a little unconventional, so hang with me. I want you to think of this brief like you’re watching a boxing match. So get out those maps, fire up some theme music from Rocky, settle in for six months of punches and counterpunches.  ------ Please remember to subscribe if you enjoyed this episode of the President's Daily Brief.

August 24th, 2022. Biden to Announce Student Debt Relief. CDC Admitted They Failed Us During COVID Response, We Have the Data to Back Up Their Guilt.
1347
It’s August 24th. You’re listening to the President’s Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ First, Joe Biden will likely announce today that he is canceling some of America’s student loan debt. But should he? And do people really need that debt relief? We’ll talk numbers, and why there might be a better way to help struggling students. As always, I’m keeping an eye out for developing stories. Put these two on your radar. First, the CDC admitted last week that they failed in their COVID pandemic response. We have data out this morning that show just how bad they failed, in this case, they failed America’s kids. Second, the United States has $7B of cash sitting a New York Bank that belongs to the Government of Afghanistan. Should we give it back to them? Joe Biden’s thinking about it. I’ll explain. And finally, the last thing before I let you go. A question from Kurt from somewhere in Mississippi. He’s seeing a suspicious pattern and wonders about the sources that I use for this podcast. ------ Please remember to subscribe if you enjoyed this episode of the President's Daily Brief.

August 23rd, 2022. How Green is Green Energy? The Chinese Government is Coming After our Cows
1468
It’s August 23rd. You’re listening to the President’s Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ First, Joe Biden is launching a national tour this week to promote his renewable energy revolution, to include electric vehicles. But here’s a question: when people plug those cars in, how green is their electric fuel? That’s an important part of this debate, and that is coming up shortly. As always, I’m keeping an eye out for developing stories. Put this one on your radar. The Chinese Government is after America’s cows. Well, we think so. They’ve hacked some agricultural software, and it’s left experts stumped. I’ll explain that bizarre story. And finally, the last thing before I let you go. I got a sharp-elbowed comment from Cam from somewhere in America. He doesn’t like how I pronounce words — one in particular. So I’m going to share with you the word, why it’s a big deal to me, and why it should be to you too. ------ Please remember to subscribe if you enjoyed this episode of the President's Daily Brief.

1282
It’s August 22nd. You’re listening to the President’s Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ First, there are lots of stories and rumors about Ukraine’s main nuclear power plant this morning. It’s not Chernobyl but a placed called Zaporizhzhia. I’m going to explain exactly what’s going on, the threats, and whether or not you should be worried. As always, I’m keeping an eye out for developing stories. Put these two on your radar. First, Joe Biden is kicking off a national tour this week, highlighting his new climate change bill. But a new rail line for coal shipments in China suggests that this celebration might be misplaced. Second, Mother Nature is wrecking havoc on all sorts of crops this year. Unfortunately, we can add a personal favorite of mine to the list: coffee. That’s coming up. And finally, the last thing before I let you go. Question from Angela in Franklin, North Carolina about that very unusual bank robbery in the country of Lebanon that I shared with you last week. ------ Please remember to subscribe if you enjoyed this episode of the President's Daily Brief.

Five critical updates on stories we’ve covered previously that are shaping America — and the world. First, the US Department of Defense left behind a lot of military equipment in Afghanistan. How much? I’ve got new numbers. Second, our Battle for the South Pacific got a little harder yesterday. China inked a big deal with a very small island. I’ll explain. Third, the situation in Cuba is leading more people to flee to America. I’ve got an update. Fourth, a drought in China spells trouble for the green energy revolution in America. I’ll share that connection. Finally, some good news out of Europe on their energy crisis, and people like you deserve some thanks. I’ll explain shortly.

It’s August 18th. You’re listening to the President’s Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ First, The CDC is admitting this morning that it failed during the COVID pandemic, its Director is promising to prevent such from ever happening again. But critics argue it’s too late, they’re already failing on the issue of Monkeypox. I’ll explain their argument. As always, I’m keeping an eye out for developing stories. Put these two on your radar. Two stories this morning focused on the mega drought in the Western United States. First, how its affecting America’s cotton farmers. And second, some rare good news for Lake Mead, the largest reservoir in the country.  I’ll explain those stories and why you should care. And finally, one more thing before I let you go. A question from Jack in Rhode Island. He wants to know what advice I would have given President Trump on what declassified intelligence / should or shouldn’t have been taken once he left the White House.  ------ Please remember to subscribe if you enjoyed this episode of the President's Daily Brief.

Five critical updates on stories we’ve covered previously that are shaping America — and the world. First, Joe Biden signed the climate change bill yesterday, but there’s a problem already with solar panels and slave labor. We’ll discuss.

Third, the Biden Administration has increased its aid to Ukraine, this time to help them pay down their national deficit. I’ve got those details. Fourth, America’s tariffs on Chinese products are likely to stay put, all because of Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan. I’ll explain the connection. Finally, a man robbed a bank in Lebanon last week to get his own money. We’ll talk about how this curious crime illustrates how desperate things are in that Middle Eastern country. And finally, one last thing before I let you go. A question from Brandon and Rafeal on how to persuade in-laws when talking politics.

1692
It’s August 16th. You’re listening to the President’s Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ First, Important developments out of Taiwan this morning, with a new surprise delegation of American politicians showing up. As you’d expect, Beijing is not happy. So this morning we’re going to talk about what happens if this brewing conflict turns to war. How would a war over Taiwan affect you? That’s coming up. As always, I’m keeping an eye out for developing stories. Put these two on your radar. First, a presidential election in Kenya just ended and it’s not going well. Election commissioners throwing chairs at each other, violence in the streets. I’ll explain what’s going on, and why you should care. Second, illegal migration numbers are in from our southern border. It’s a record, and not a good one. I’ll explain. And finally, one more thing before I let you go. A comment this morning from Drew from somewhere in America. He thinks that the PDB is too political lately, talking domestic issues instead of just global events. So I’ll respond to Drew’s concerns and see if you agree. ------ Please remember to subscribe if you enjoyed this episode of the President's Daily Brief.

August 15th, 2022. Update: Was it Legal for the FBI to Raid President Trump?
1491
It’s August 15th. You’re listening to the President’s Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ First, The FBI raid of the home of former President Donald Trump last week has been all over the news. But missing in the coverage is a very important Supreme Court case that suggests there is something very rotten about this raid, even unconstitutional. That’s coming up. As always, I’m keeping an eye out for developing stories. Put these two on your radar. First, some very good news in the Wheat Wars. A big shipment of wheat set sail this morning from Ukraine to an African country that’s on the verge of starvation. I’ve got the latest. Second, the State of Arizona is finishing part of the wall on our southern border a wall that the Biden Administration refused to complete. It’s a pretty bold move, and I’ll explain why. And finally, one last thing before I let you go. A question this morning from Rebecca in Danville, Virginia. She wrote asking if I’m a Republican or Democrat, and whether that affects how I put together the PDB every day. Good question. ------ Please remember to subscribe if you enjoyed this episode of the President's Daily Brief. Email: PDB@TheFirstTV.com Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

1573
It’s August 12th. You’re listening to the President’s Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ First, the Center for Disease Control announced new COVID recommendations yesterday, rolling back lots of restrictions. You may have seen that story but what you probably didn’t see is that half of America plans to ignore that advice; they refuse to move on. We’re going to discuss who those people are, and why their refusal matters. As always, I’m keeping an eye out for developing stories. Put these two on your radar. First, the biggest fire in Cuba’s history is out, but the crisis is just beginning. And that could mean a rush of migrants to our southern border. I’ll update you on that development. Second, Ukraine’s top law-enforcement official says that, once the war with Russia is over, everybody should buy more guns. That’s a big policy change for that country. We’ll discuss it. And finally, one more thing before I let you go. Two questions from listeners, one about solar panels and the other about wanting some good news.

August 11th, 2022. Special Brief: Hawaii, a Case Study of Our Upcoming Energy Crisis.
1539
It’s August 11th. You’re listening to the President’s Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ Welcome to this Special Edition of the President’s Daily Brief.  And it’s very special indeed, because America is about to undergo an energy revolution. There is a $380B climate change bill that is set to pass the House of Representatives tomorrow following its previous passage in the Senate. After tomorrow’s vote, it heads to the desk of Joe Biden who will sign it. That means, soon enough, states in this country will be changing the way we power our lives — our cars, our homes, our businesses — everything. So how will this energy revolution work? And will it work? Well, we have a test case this morning that we’re going to talk about: the state of Hawaii. They’ve been at it for seven years now. And if Hawaii is any indication, we are gonna see a real green energy mess.  That cautionary tale is the focus of today’s Special Edition of the PDB — it’s a deep dive into what went wrong, why, and lessons that you can learn for your state. And, as always, I’ve got one more thing before I let you go. A comment from a listener named Ryan // he emailed and suggested I’m a lazy conservative and wrong to say that the NY Times and Washington Post are Democrat newspapers. So I’ll give you the data and history on these two newspapers, and then you can decide who’s right. ------ Please remember to subscribe if you enjoyed this episode of the President's Daily Brief.

It’s August 10th. You’re listening to the President’s Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ We’ve got a Big Five Update this morning. Five critical updates on five stories that are shaping America — and the world. First up, the federal government is out with inflation numbers this morning. I’ve got an update on where the all-important natural gas prices fit in that picture. Second, the Canadian and US Governments don’t want you to hear about something in Ukraine. I’ll share it with you anyway. Third, the Wheat Wars are settling down, ships are getting to market. Except for one. I’ll explain that. Fourth, the White House is angry at China this morning and it has to do with fentanyl. Finally, parents are holding off getting their littlest kids vaccinated from COVID. I’ll explain that data. Plus, an email from Eric in Louisiana. He had a few cuss words he wanted to share about the FBI.

August 9th, 2022. Breaking: Former President Donald Trump is Raided by the FBI.
1653
It’s August 9th. You’re listening to the President’s Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ Today is a Special Edition of the PDB. And that’s because of what happened yesterday in Florida. The home of former president Donald Trump was raided by the FBI.  So today we’re going to talk about that — what we know, what we don’t — but most especially I’m going to discuss the central question that you, me and other Americans are now going to have to wrestle with. Do you trust the FBI?  Because if the answer is yes, then this development yesterday in Florida doesn’t bother you much. It’s standard procedure for an FBI that is professional, and just doing their jobs as the rules and law allow. But is that true? Is there anything in the recent past that might give a reasonable person pause about the FBI? Because if so, that might suggest that this raid, this investigation in Florida is anything but proper or legal. So that’s what we’re going to wrestle with this morning as this major story develops.  And as always, I’ll offer up one more thing before I let you go, a note from Lindsey in Oregon. And it’s a good question about hope. Which perhaps is something we could all use. ------ Please remember to subscribe if you enjoyed this episode of the President's Daily Brief.

Your morning intel starts now. ------ First, Democrat Mayors are blasting Republican Governors in Texas and Arizona this morning for bussing illegal migrants into their towns. We’re going to look at the numbers and you can decide whether or not their outrage is warranted. As always, I’m keeping an eye out for developing stories. Put these two on your radar. First, China conducted war games over the weekend, all because of Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan. I’m going to explain the latest, and how it could dramatically impact your life. Second, there was a lighting strike in Cuba late last week that actually could lead to more illegal migrants at our southern border in the future. I’ll explain that curious connection.  And finally, one last thing before I let you go. A quick update on my request for direct-to-consumer beef providers, and also I share the replies that some of you’ve gotten from your Senators and Representatives. ------ Please remember to subscribe if you enjoyed this episode of the President's Daily Brief.

It’s August 5th. You’re listening to the President’s Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ First, there are Afghan terrorists in America but the FBI has lost track of them. That’s the alarming admission made yesterday by the FBI Director. We’ll discuss the latest. As always, I’m keeping an eye out for developing stories. Put these two on your radar. First up, the Chinese Government and its partners have bought over 200,000 acres of American land — including 300 acres near a key Air Force Base. I’ll share the latest on attempts to roll back those purchases. Second, an update on the War for the South Pacific. As PDB listeners might recall, there’s a big fight between America and China over influence in the South Pacific — with Hawaii in the crosshairs. I’ve got an update on our government’s efforts to claw back power in the region.  And finally, one more thing before I let you go. Questions and comments from listeners, this one from Jeremy in Topeka, Kansas. He’s skeptical that Africa should be of interest to Americans. I’ll explain what he might not be considering, and then you can decide. ------ Please remember to subscribe if you enjoyed this episode of the President's Daily Brief.

It’s August 4th. You’re listening to the President’s Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ It’s the Big Five Update this morning on the PDB. Five briefs on five topics that I’ve discussed with you before with some important updates. First, the Wheat Wars. On Monday the first ship out of Ukraine set sail for the Middle East. But how far did it get? I’ve got that for you. Second, the War of Attrition. The fight between Russia and Ukraine battles on, with American taxpayers propping up Kiev. But what about Russia? How’s their economy these days? I’ve got the latest. Third, last week Joe Biden held a phone call with China’s President Xi. So what’d they talk about? We don’t know for sure. And that is a problem. I’ll explain. Fourth, fans of climate change want to slaughter all of America’s cows. We talked about that this week. But some people think we can save them by changing their feed to bugs. I’ve got that tasty story. And finally on this Big Five Update, gas and diesel prices are going down. And that’s good. Well, not exactly. I’ll explain the reason why none of us should cheer for the reasons behind the drop. And of course, I’ve got one more thing before I let you go, an email today from Tiffany from somewhere in America. She wants to know about that controversial CIA recruitment ad that some of you may have seen. I’ve got my reaction, coming up. ------ Please remember to subscribe if you enjoyed this episode of the President's Daily Brief. Email: PDB@TheFirstTV.com Learn more about your ad choices.

It’s August 3rd. You’re listening to the President’s Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ First, Washington DC is targeting the nation’s cattle this morning, all because of climate change. But this is really about so much more. I’ll discuss what that is and what you can do about it. As always, I’m keeping an eye out for developing stories. Put these two on your radar. First, public confirmation this morning that American intelligence is directing missile attacks against the Russians in Ukraine. I’ve got the details on this very dangerous development. Second, the tensions between China and Taiwan took an unexpected twist in recent days, and not because of Nancy Pelosi’s visit. It has to do with companies leaving over the prospect of war. I’ll explain. And finally, one more thing before I let you go, the segment on emails from listeners. I got one from Rachel in Clarksville, Tennessee. She asked if I ever got nervous working for CIA and if I was taught how to handle that anxiety. She wants some tips on how to think like a spy!

I’ll give you the latest on this very good news, to include what this death means in our War on Terror. As always, I’m keeping an eye out for developing stories. Put these two on your radar. First, you may have seen the headlines about the horrible fires in Europe over the past couple weeks. Media outlets blamed climate change. But there was an arrest last week in France that suggests otherwise. We’ll discuss that sobering news. Second, American car companies are building more electric cars, which means they need more batteries. That’s leading many of them to sign deals with the Chinese. I’ll share the latest. And finally, the last thing before I let you go. An email from Charlie in Twin Falls, Idaho. He worries that America is cracking apart, and that maybe we are headed for a civil war. So we’re going to talk about that, and see if you agree. ------ Please remember to subscribe if you enjoyed this episode of the President's Daily Brief.

First, today is a big day for the Wheat Wars. Ukraine’s first ship of agricultural goods set sail into open waters. I’ll explain what to look for, and why it matters. Second, America’s top diplomat is off to Africa next week, to Rwanda and the Congo. Savvy listeners might remember why those nations are so important. It has to do with batteries. We’ll discuss. And finally, one last thing before I let you go. A question from Rick from New Mexico. He asked if my working for the CIA changed my daily habits — like how I drive — or how it changed my view of the world. Those are great questions. And I’ve got answers.

1519
It’s July 29th. You’re listening to the President’s Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ First up, The US Senate announced a big bill yesterday to address climate change. One of the reasons to pass it, supporters are saying, is that it gives America the moral authority to demand other nations to follow our lead. We’ll discuss whether that is convincing.  As always, I’m keeping an eye out for developing stories. Put these two on your radar. First, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is flying to Asia today. Will she stop in Taiwan? Joe Biden’s telling her not to. I’ll explain why. Second, we have some new numbers out on who’s trying to cross our southern border. It’s a wave of Cubans. We’ll talk about why. And finally, the last thing before I let you go. Questions from listeners. Five today. Mostly lighthearted, a couple serious.

We’ll discuss what’s happening, and a request for how you might. Fourth, the Border Patrol is reporting how many illegals have slipped past them. It’s a big number, folks.

Your electricity bill for July is probably gonna go up — way up, especially if your local utility uses natural gas. I’ve got the four reasons for that, plus what we can do about it. And finally, “one last thing before I let you go." That’s the new segment where I answer questions or address comments from listeners. Today it’s Jackie in Chico, California. She thinks that too many of my solutions to the world’s problems involve killing people. Well. We will discuss that.

It’s July 26th. You’re listening to the President’s Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ First, Joe Biden confirmed yesterday that he’s going to talk to China’s leadership this week, chatting about Taiwan, the economy and the climate.

We’ll discuss.  As always, I’m keeping an eye out for developing stories. Put these two on your radar. First, the Natural Gas Wars took another nasty turn yesterday. Russia’s cutting their supply to Europe by half, starting tomorrow. I’m going to explain the game that Moscow is playing. Second, by now you’ve seen the headlines: Monkeypox is a global health emergency. I’m going to remind us that the big development here is not in the United States, but in the Congo, where something very strange is happening.  And finally, a comment from Jack in Indianapolis about Afghanistan, al-Qa’ida, and how he does not want us to go back — no matter what.

July 21st, 2022. Special Brief: Mexican President AMLO Laughs at Biden and Trudeau.
1371
It’s July 21st. You’re listening to the President’s Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ Today is a Special Brief about a growing threat just under the radar, and just under our Southern Border. Not the cartels this time. Not even drugs or gang violence. This morning we’re going to talk about Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador. His nickname is AMLO for short. Yesterday he said something remarkable when he was asked about a trade dispute that filed by Joe Biden and Justin Trudeau, who’s the Prime Minister of Canada.  President AMLO said “Ohhh I’m soooo scared,” when he was asked of Biden’s trade dispute filing, and then he followed that up by saying, “Nothing will happen.” Now I’ve never heard any Mexican President be so audaciously dismissive towards America or American leadership. And so this morning we’re going to unpack exactly what’s going on — who this character AMLO is — and what to do about it. Because his statements yesterday are a flashing red light that things aren’t well in Mexico City, the capital of a country that we share a 2,000 mile long border with, and happens to be a major trade partner.  The consequences could be very dire for you and every other American if we don’t quickly see what’s happening.

It’s July 20th. You’re listening to the President’s Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ Email: PDB@TheFirstTV.com First up, Joe Biden is in Massachusetts this morning, talking up green energy, and most especially off-shore wind projects. Odds are, though, he’s not going to tell America the full story about wind energy, and that it’s not that green. We’ve got a deep dive on the facts, coming up. As always, I’m keeping an eye out for developing stories. Put this one on your radar. Congress just took a really important vote. Now some might say it’s about interracial and gay marriage, but that’s not why it’s important. Instead, it’s really about fixing our government. I’ve got that analysis — plus a reminder for Friday’s show. All up next on the President's Daily Brief. ------ Please remember to subscribe if you enjoyed this episode of the President's Daily Brief.

Fewer illegal migrants tried to cross into the country last month. And the reason? A Texas politician is playing hardball with the Mexican Government and their businesses. I’ll explain. As always, I’m keeping an eye out for developing stories. Put these two on your radar. First, Ukraine’s got a spy problem. Hundreds of espionage cases. And all of that could put Joe Biden’s $50B worth of weapons and aid at serious risk. That’s coming up. Finally, the US Secret Service — which guards the president — is buying Chinese drones that the Pentagon says are a threat to national security. What’s worse: other agencies are doing exactly the same. All that, plus a request for you. I want to do a special show on Friday, but I need you to help me do it.

As always, I’m keeping an eye out for developing stories. Put these two on your radar. First, the Natural Gas Wars in Europe are hitting France hard, and their industries are launching a war-time effort to get ready for a very cold winter.

As always, I’m keeping an eye out for developing stories. Put these two on your radar. First, the War of Attrition between Russia and Ukraine just got extended. That’s because the nation of Brazil inked a deal with Moscow to buy diesel. And that means Putin can better finance his on-going war in Europe. I’ll explain how that impacts you. Second, a very peculiar video out of Mexico this morning. One of the most deadly cartels is telling other, rival cartels that they should keep violence between them and not kill civilians.

But actually it is. It’s a really big deal. And I’m going to explain why. Why this decision about foreign solar panels is really about the future of America.  And it’s a future that doesn’t look bright because of a massive political failure in this country. You see, those foreign solar panels used to be made here. Or could have been. That is, until their patented designs were stolen through espionage — taken by Chinese spies back to Beijing many years ago, and given to their solar companies to make panels there. So join me this morning on a special brief, one not just about solar panels. But the very future of America.  All up next on the President’s Daily Brief. ------ Please remember to subscribe if you enjoyed this episode of the President's Daily Brief.
