The Ukrainian people are living with the fear of an imminent invasion by Russia. Peace talks between the Palestinians and the Israelis broke down this week after Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas joined the terrorist organization Hamas in a unity deal. And the Taliban is claiming it shot down a helicopter in Afghanistan this weekend, killing 5 NATO troops. Glen talks about these and other foreign policy headlines during this weekend’s radio program. When the United States retreats, the world is less safe.
Glen talks with a number of interesting guests. Matt Brouillette (President and CEO of the Commonwealth Foundation) talks about the need to protect tax payers from big-government, pro-public union legislators. Jim Hanak (Founder and CEO of PA Leadership Charter School) talks about the latest attempt by Harrisburg legislators to cut charter school funding and give unions more power over us and our children.
