Colin Powell, who died on October 18, 2021, wore many hats during his distinguished career in public service, among them: Secretary of State, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and National Security Advisor. And he was the first African-American to hold each of those positions. When he joined the Army in the 1950's, though, his only ambition was to be a good soldier. It was beyond the realm of possibility for the son of working class Jamaican immigrants to aspire much higher. In this episode, which originally posted in September of 2017, you'll hear Powell's stories about his journey from the South Bronx, to the jungles of Vietnam, to the Jim Crow South, to the highest reaches of government, and about the decades of American history he helped shape.

When Colin Powell died on October 18 at the age of 84 from COVID-19 complications, he left behind a long, decorated career in Washington and the U.S. Army. He spent much of his life in the military, eventually rising to the rank of four-star general, and went on to become the first Black Secretary of state and chairman of the Joint Chiefs. But, as he discussed in a 2012 interview with NPR's Robert Siegel about his memoir It Worked For Me, Powell's reputation was tarnished when he used faulty evidence to push for the Iraq War: "I'll never leave it behind." This episode comes from NPR's new podcast, Book of the Day.

General Colin Powell, who passed away this week, is remembered throughout the national security community as a distinguished public servant and American statesman.

Colin Powell, former Secretary of State, Joint Chiefs chairman, and omnipresence in American foreign policy for the past 20 years, died on Monday from complications from COVID-19. He was 84-years-old and been sick for years with multiple myeloma, a rare blood cancer.  Colin Powell was many things to many people. A symbol of the American dream. The public voice — for a time — of the Iraq War. A so-called “RINO,” or Republican-in-name-only. A good soldier. Though widely remembered as a barrier-breaking hero by folks across the aisle, in his death, as in life, there are those who are using Colin Powell as an opportunity for scoring political points.  Looking back at the life of Colin Powell, it is worth recalling that he was once one of America's most popular public officials, polling favorably among 85 percent of Americans in a 2002 Gallup poll. But what Colin Powell is perhaps most remembered for is his 2003 presentation to the UN Security Council explaining the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. A little over a year later, Powell went on NBC's Meet the Press and essentially retracted his assertion, saying it "turned out that the sourcing was inaccurate and wrong and in some cases deliberately misleading." Brooke speaks with Fred Kaplan, a veteran reporter on foreign policy and national security, long-time writer of Slate's "War Stories" column, and even longer-time husband of Brooke, about the life and legacy of Colin Powell.

Colin Powell's life was marked by public service, first as a soldier in Vietnam and then eventually as President George W. Bush's secretary of state. By that time he had already held many prominent positions in government, including national security adviser and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He was the first African American to hold each of these roles. But Powell's story will always be entwined with the Iraq War. Although he argued against the invasion in private White House meetings, he did see it through. And he famously defended the strategy on a national stage before the United Nations. NPR National Correspondent Don Gonyea reports on Powell's enormous and complicated legacy.

But Cochran faced a different kind of fire in 2015 when he was terminated as Atlanta's fire chief for writing a book in which he expressed his personal views that marriage is between one man and one woman. Cochran reached a settlement with the city of Atlanta in 2018, but says the experience of losing his job because of his faith was “challenging, to say the least.” As Americans, “we have the freedom to live out our faith, religious liberty, and we have freedom to speak our faith in whatever form of speech that we feel convicted to do without consequences,” Cochran says. “You shouldn't have to lose anything for living out your faith or speaking in your faith in our country.” Cochran joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to discuss his new book, “Facing the Fire: The Faith That Brought ‘America's Fire Chief' Through the Flames of Persecution.” We also cover these stories: Former Secretary of State and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Colin Powell dies due to complications from COVID-19.The Supreme Court issues two opinions that are being hailed as big wins for police officers.

The Cold War between the US and the Soviet Union is at its peak when the unthinkable happens: nuclear war. Sixty years later, the remaining 13 states rose from the ashes to form the American Union, governed by the authoritarian Joint Chiefs of Staff and protected by a border wall to keep out nuclear radiation . . . and the individuals who were enhanced by it. Nuclear Power is a darkly poignant alternate history of the Cuban Missile Crisis that posits the lengths to which a government will go to protect (or deceive) its citizens. When the Joint Chiefs' dark secrets are revealed, will survivors on both sides of the wall join forces to fight for their right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, or will their differences forever divide them?

“There is no peacetime in the information environment,” according to Greg Radabaugh, who is the former Director of the Joint Information Operations Warfare Center (JIOWC). “Information rounds are being fired at us continually 24/7.” While our forces do well at operations in the information environment (OIE) at the tactical and operational levels, Greg discusses the imperative for US leaders to focus on the strategic aspects of informational power (IP). After recapping the history and purpose of the JIOWC, Greg gives his perspective on the concept of informational power--a term coined by the former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Joe Dunford. A key factor in successfully applying IP is characterizing the IE in a manner that enables commanders to understand adversary actions in the IE and resulting decisions. Greg also discusses the new version of Joint Pub 3-13 (Information Operations) as well as the importance of Joint Doctrine, in general, as a definitional framework especially important for synchronizing activities across the DoD enterprise and among friends and allies.

President Biden received his booster shot this week at the White House on camera following the FDA and CDC's approval of the third dose for Americans over the age of 65, those with underlying health conditions and front-line workers at higher risk of being exposed to the virus. The President is still pleading with those Americans who still have not received their first COVID-19 shot saying, "This is a pandemic of the unvaccinated." FOX News Washington Correspondent Rachel Sutherland speaks with U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy about some of the reasons people will not take the vaccine and how the administration plans to sell it to the unvaccinated. This week we heard from President Biden's top military officials, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley and CENTCOM Commander General Kenneth McKenzie during a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on the U.S. troop withdrawal from Afghanistan. Rachel speaks with General Jack Keane, FOX News Senior Strategic Analyst, and retired four-star general, about the key takeaways from this week's hearing and the future of America's war against terrorism.

This week, President Biden's top military officials, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley and Commander of U.S. Central Command General Kenneth McKenzie testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee about the U.S. troop withdrawal from Afghanistan. Both Gen. Milley and Gen. McKenzie testified to lawmakers that they recommended maintaining a U.S. troop presence in Afghanistan, contradicting President Biden's earlier claims in August that he was never advised to leave a small military presence in the region. Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA) joins to weigh in on the latest revelation regarding Afghanistan troops. The Senator also discusses Congress's battle to get President Biden's domestic agenda passed, including the bipartisan infrastructure bill and if he thinks it will happen. Plus, he explains why Republicans won't help Democrats raise the debt ceiling despite fears that the U.S. could default.   President Biden's economic agenda has been put in jeopardy by congressional Democrats, with the clash between moderate and progressives within the party creating uncertainty about the feasibility of the President's $3.5 trillion spending plan. House progressives have threatened to tank the bipartisan infrastructure bill unless the moderates in the Senate approve the multi-trillion-dollar plan. President Biden has canceled his scheduled trip to Chicago this week in order to meet with Democrat lawmakers to resolve the split. Co-founder and President of RealClearPolitics Tom Bevan joins to break down the obstacles President Biden faces in passing his agenda, the impact the Democrats' small majority in Congress has had on relations within the party, and why the President's approval numbers are slipping.   Plus, commentary by FOX News Senior Meteorologist Janice Dean.

On Thursday's Mark Levin Show, upon this program's review of federal laws on the role of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, it was determined that the Chairman has no command function over the United States military. None. Although, the Chairman can oversee a combat command function if asked to do so on behalf of the Secretary of Defense. General Mark Milley seized power in contravention of the federal statute. There's leaking to news outlets to spin the Milley story and minimize its negative fallout. Later, Attorney Michael Sussman from Perkins Coie, the firm that represented Hillary Clinton, has been indicted in John Durham's investigation. He's being charged with making false statements to the FBI when he lied about representing Hillary Clinton in 2016 while lying about Donald Trump. This is the same law firm that laundered the money for the phony dossier paid for by the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign and the Democrat National Committee. Clinton's lawyer, Marc Elias, has raised $715 million through a web of dark money front groups that are prepared to sue their way around existing laws - this must be stopped. Meanwhile, Julie Kelly, Sr. Contributor at American Greatness, joins the show to take on Phillip Bump from the Washington Post who is now attacking this program for the January 6th riot at the US Capitol. Kelly added that two federal judges have raised questions as to the constitutionality of some of these felonies that are being levied against some protesters that didn't even enter the Capitol Building. Afterward, President Biden wants to destroy jobs, the currency, and the American way of life by using Marxism. No company in America has more money and employees than the US federal government and they have the power to make laws. And the Democrat Party wants to be the permanent singular party that dominates all control of the state and its bureaucracy. Finally, Larry Kudlow, former Director of the National Economic Council during the Trump Administration, calls in to discuss how Biden's use of class warfare and welfare programs will further rig the playing field instead of leveling it for all Americans. The Trump Tax cuts did that and the Biden Tax increases will kill those gains.
