This week, Alan, Quinta, and Scott waited for a big shoe to drop by talking over the week's big national security news, including:“What Else Can I Get Away With on Fifth Avenue...” Donald Trump is expected to become the first former president to be indicted on criminal charges this week—if, that is, local authorities are not deterred by the public protests Trump's supporters are preparing to hold in New York City at his request. What will this move mean for the country? And how might it end? “Territorial Refute.” After weeks of avoiding the issue, likely 2024 Republican presidential contender Ron Desantis adopted the position that supporting Ukraine—which he described as being involved in a “territorial dispute”—is not a vital U.S. interest, bringing him into alignment with former President Trump and signaling a strong lean towards isolationism in the 2024 Republican field. What will this mean for the likely candidates? And for U.S. support for Ukraine moving forward?“The ‘Blood, Treasure, and Regret' Anniversary.” This past week marked the 20th anniversary of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, which set out to remove a dictator and welcome a new wave of democracy in the Middle East—but has instead resulted in an Iraq that is still recovering from years of sectarian violence and increasingly under Iran's influence. What is the legacy of the decision to invade? And what does it mean for U.S. foreign policy moving forward?For object lessons, Alan recommended the new spy (lawyer) thriller TV series "The Recruit." Quinta endorsed two Iraq-related movies: the comedy "In the Loop" and the Errol Morris documentary "The Unknown Known," a profile of Donald Rumsfeld and spiritual successor to Morris's classic documentary "The Fog of War." Scott threw in one more documentary for good measure—“Control Room," about engagements between CENTCOM and Al Jazeera around the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq—before urging everyone to read an amazing report in the New York Times documenting new evidence that supporters of Ronald Reagan might have urged Iranian revolutionaries to keep U.S. hostages in custody in order to hurt President Jimmy Carter's chances at reelection.

The Past, the Promise, the Presidency
Oil runs the world. From our cars to our houses, most of us can't live without it. From the 1940s to the 1960s, though, oil played another specific role as a central part of conflict and diplomacy during the Cold War. It was during this era that Iran developed into the world's first “petro-state”: a nation whose state revenue, industrializing economy, military, and growing middle class all depended on the growth of the oil industry. This all occurred alongside major Cold War developments, including the regime of the Iranian shah, the coup d'etat of 1953, and more. Centering our analyses of these Cold War moments around the role of petroleum casts the histories of the Iranian and US governments in an entirely new light. Joining our conversation this week is Dr. Gregory Brew, a leading expert on the relationship between Iran, the US, and oil during the Cold War.Gregory Brew is a historian and author specializing in U.S. foreign relations, oil, Iran, and the modern Middle East. He has authored two books on the Iranian “petro-state” and contributed to numerous peer reviewed publications. His work explores the connections between the formation of a global oil economy, the geopolitics of the Cold War, and the contemporary energy transition. After receiving his doctorate from Georgetown University in June 2018, he served as a post-doctoral fellow at the Jackson School for Global Affairs at Yale University from 2021-2023. Currently, Dr. Brew is an Analyst at Eurasia Group, covering energy and Iran.He is the author of The Struggle for Iran: Oil, Autocracy, and the Cold War, 1951–1954 and Petroleum and Progress in Iran: Oil, Development, and the Cold War.Follow him on Twitter @gbrew24 and visit his website gregorybrew.com.

The Times of Israel Daily Briefing
Welcome to The Times of Israel's Daily Briefing, your 15-minute audio update on what's happening in Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish world, from Sunday through Thursday. US correspondent Jacob Magid and New York reporter Luke Tress join host Jessica Steinberg for today's podcast. Magid discusses more missteps made by Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich, this time in Paris, where his remarks about Palestinians and the greater Israel created a diplomatic event with Jordan. Tress talks about the growing numbers and locations of anti-judicial overhaul protests in New York and New Jersey, and how the American Jewish community views this controversial issue. Magid speaks about President Joe Biden's phone call with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu regarding the judicial overhaul and the US president's words about Israel's democratic values. He also reviewed the meetings between Israel, Jordan, Egypt, the US and the Palestinian Authority in Sharm el Sheikh about the increase in tensions as Ramadan begins Thursday, with some guarded optimism about the cooperative efforts. Tress reviews the latest Ben & Jerry's brouhaha, this time as the Vermont ice cream maker is being sued for child labor, seemingly inconsistent with its declared social mission that caused the company decided to stop selling its ice cream in East Jerusalem and the West Bank two years ago. Discussed articles include: Jordan summons Israeli envoy over ‘racist' Smotrich speech, ‘Greater Israel' map Hundreds demonstrate in New York, London against Israeli judicial shakeup plan On trip to the US, high-level IDF veterans issue warning against judicial overhaul Israel activists in New York take aim at US group backing judicial overhaul push Leading NY rabbi: Israeli government speeding ‘headlong toward abyss' with overhaul Biden voices concern over judicial overhaul in ‘candid' phone call with Netanyahu Israel, PA renew vow to curb violence and halt unilateral moves at Egypt summit ‘Hypocritical': Ben & Jerry's sued over child labor, after attempted Israel boycott Subscribe to The Times of Israel Daily Briefing on iTunes, Spotify, PlayerFM, Google Play, or wherever you get your podcasts.

Intercepted with Jeremy Scahill
Amidst massive protests around the United States and the world, on March 19, 2003, the U.S. began its invasion of Iraq. This week on Intercepted, Jeremy Scahill, Murtaza Hussain, and Iraqi journalist Ghaith Abdul-Ahad discuss the long-lasting impact of the war on Iraq and its people. Throughout the 20 years since the invasion, Iraq was torn to shreds by a gratuitous American occupation and a U.S.-fueled sectarian civil war. Hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians died as U.S. policy gave rise to Al Qaeda — and ultimately the Islamic State in Iraq.While many commemorations of this bloody anniversary focus on the 2003 invasion, the plans to destroy Iraq were launched much earlier and were supported by Democrats and Republicans alike. Scahill, Hussain, and Abdul-Ahad discuss life under Saddam Hussein, the lead-up to the U.S. invasion, the brutality of the occupation, and the systematic refusal to bring any accountability for those responsible.“Of course, the Iraqis could not believe that their new colonial masters had no clue, had done no planning and made no preparations for what was going to happen after they invaded the country,” Abdul-Ahad writes in his new book, “A Stranger in Your Own City: Travels in the Middle East's Long War.” “When the myth of an American-generated prosperity clashed with the realities of occupation, chaos and destruction followed. Resentment and anger swept the country and all the suppressed rage of the previous decades exploded.”Abdul-Ahad shares stories from his deeply human reporting on his personal journey from an architect living in Baghdad to a celebrated international journalist documenting the rise and fall of ISIS.If you'd like to support our work, go to theintercept.com/join — your donation, no matter what the amount, makes a real difference.And if you haven't already, please subscribe to the show so you can hear it every week.

Little Joe's Conservative Corner
Chinese President Xi Jinping landed in Russia on Monday for a three-day visit in which he will meet with Russia President Vladimir Putin. Iran and Saudi Arabia announced last Friday a Chinese-brokered deal to restore relations. After decades of enmity and a formal cutting of ties in 2016, the rapprochement has been touted as a momentous development in the region. But how it ultimately impacts the Middle East remains a very open question, as the long adversarial powers are fighting a proxy war in Yemen and continue to support opposing sides across the region. Amid perceived U.S. retrenchment from the Middle East, the deal is a diplomatic win for China as it increasingly seeks to present an alternative vision to the U.S.-led global order. Minnesota regulators knew four months ago that radioactive waste had leaked from a nuclear power plant in Monticello — but they didn't announce anything about the leak until this week.

3/21/23 - Listen for yourself: Jesus and his Holy Catholic Church may be the only thing(s) powerful enough to shake a Navy SEAL to the core. Just ask Sam Blair, a former Navy SEAL officer with over a decade of experience leading the most elite teams around the globe. After holding leadership positions on multiple SEAL teams, he taught Leadership and Ethics at the United States Naval Academy and helped screen, select, and train over 90 new future SEAL Officers. Sam has travelled to over 50 countries and deployed to Africa, the Middle East, and South America. But of all the stories that Sam has to share, that of his journey into the church may just be the most dramatic of them all.

Born in Houston Texas, but raised in Iran, Aarash Darroodi remembers as a small child, running for cover when sirens warned that missles were coming from Iraq. Those moments helped shape his life, including being seperated from his parents (and raised by his grandparents), surviving the Iran - Iraq War, traveling throughout the Middle East and parts of Asia, becoming an accountant for a major insurance firm, and eventually landing his dream job as an attorney at one of America's most legendary and well known music manufactures in the world. As General Counsel & Executive Vice President of Fender Musical Instruments, Aarash shares his insight into what has made Fender Guitars one of the most recognizable instruments known. From such guitarists as Buddy Holly to Eric Clapton, to Stevie Ray Vaughn, Fender has set the benchmark for other guitar makers to strive for.

The Times of Israel Daily Briefing
Welcome to The Times of Israel's Daily Briefing, your 15-minute audio update on what's happening in Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish world, from Sunday through Thursday. Editor David Horovitz and environment reporter Sue Surkes join host Amanda Borschel-Dan on today's episode. MK Simcha Rothman's revised version of the bill changing the mechanism of judicial appointments is set to be brought before Rothman's Constitution, Law and Justice Committee today to be readied for its second and third (final) readings in the plenum. Horovitz explains what the new bill entails and its significance to the judicial branch as a whole. The United Nations released its Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's Sixth Assessment Synthesis Report yesterday. With a focus on Israel, Surkes breaks down some areas where the country is moving away from its commitments. Surkes recently visited the Hula Lake where she investigated what's happening with migrating cranes. She describes the natural grandeur. And finally, Horovitz gives some insight into Israe's surprisingly high fourth-place ranking in the UN-sponsored World Happiness index. Discussed articles include: Ostensibly softened, Rothman bill gives coalition broad control over choice of judges Changes to judicial overhaul leave just 10 days to re-do constitutional framework ‘Red line we won't accept': Levin warns Court not to block judicial appointments bill Scientists urge further cut in greenhouse gas emissions by 2035 to meet Paris goals Israel soars to 4th place in global happiness list, highest since ranking started Subscribe to The Times of Israel Daily Briefing on iTunes, Spotify, PlayerFM, Google Play, or wherever you get your podcasts.

Is there a case for ignoring the news sometimes—or even most of the time? That's the question Shadi Hamid urges us to consider in his recent essay for The Atlantic "You're Better Off Not Knowing." Hamid explores research suggesting a negative correlation between personal well-being and political awareness and argues that unless you need to follow politics for a living, "it's unclear what the news—good or bad—actually does for you, beyond making you aware of things you have no real control over." We talk to Hamid about the downsides of information addiction and hear how you engage in current events and avoid overwhelm. Guests: Shadi Hamid, senior fellow, Brookings - His recent essay for the Atlantic is called "You're Better Off Not Knowing." His latest book is "The Problem of Democracy: America, the Middle East, and the Rise and Fall of an Idea"

Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu was in Cairo on Saturday for the first time since ties were ruptured a decade ago to push to restore full diplomatic relations between the two countries. The move comes despite lingering tensions over Turkey's support of the Muslim Brotherhood, its presence in Libya, and its provocative stance in the Eastern Mediterranean - three issues Cairo reportedly wants to see Ankara take steps on if it is to normalize relations. Dr. Nervana Mahmoud joins Thanos Davelis to look at what this visit means for Egypt-Turkey relations, and break down whether Ankara can deliver on Cairo's conditions.Dr. Nervana Mahmoud is a regional observer and independent commentator who writes mainly about Egypt, liberal Islam, women rights, radicalism, and wider issues about the Middle East.

The Times of Israel Daily Briefing
Welcome to The Times of Israel's Daily Briefing, your 15-minute audio update on what's happening in Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish world, from Sunday through Thursday. Diplomatic correspondent Lazar Berman and legal reporter Jeremy Sharon join host Jessica Steinberg for today's podcast. Sharon discusses a last-minute addition in the judicial overhaul, a late-stage proposal from the coalition, in which it would get to choose two new judges without opposition input, and any further appointments would be more balanced. Berman talks about the meeting that took place in Sharm El Sheikh between Israel, the US, its Arab neighbors and the Palestinian Authority ahead of Ramadan, which begins Wednesday, in an effort to calm tensions during the month-long religious holiday. Sharon also discusses the latest tensions between National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir and the high court, as it ruled he can't issue orders to the police forces, which Ben Gvir has attempted to do during recent protests. Berman reviews remarks made by Israel's consul general in New York about the judicial overhaul, bringing his personal politics into the public diplomatic persona. Berman also reports on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's latest European visit, to Berlin late last week, a trip that the prime minister appeared to enjoy, including a lengthy conversation about public policy and the judicial reform with Chancellor Olaf Scholz. Discussed articles include: Coalition to bring judicial appointments bill for final votes before Passover Top court says police don't take orders on protests from Ben Gvir, who slams ‘coup' Israel's envoy in NY summoned to Jerusalem over criticism of judicial overhaul Netanyahu says he is ‘attentive' to protests, vows ‘responsible' judicial changes Subscribe to The Times of Israel Daily Briefing on iTunes, Spotify, PlayerFM, Google Play, or wherever you get your podcasts.

In this episode of GODMODE™: Win or Win Bigger, William Lam has guest Rabbi Curt Landry, who stands with Israel and is a bridge of unity and restoration between Israel and the Church. About Rabbi Curt Landry:In spite of Curt Landry's rough start and challenges in school, he grew into a very successful businessman. As the Lord worked on his heart, he put his trust in Yeshua one night and wept as he came to understand God's heart for him and his innately sinful nature. But the Lord was only beginning to reveal to him his true identity and purpose. Identity is a revelation of why we are created and what we are created for. Those who understand and accept their true identity have the key to peace. When we know who we are, we can pull the lever of purpose, and God equips us to change lives. It is only through a process that God reveals this. This peace is what Curt wants others to experience.As Curt grew and understood his identity better, God revealed his purpose—to stand with Israel, be a voice, and bridge unity and restoration between Israel and the Church. The journey continued as officials and leaders in Israel approached him about a number of projects, namely projects to care for orphans–from infancy to adulthood.Find out more about Rabbi Curt Landry at:Website: https://www.curtlandry.com/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/curtlandrymin/---HIGHLIGHTS:Rabbi Curt Landy believes that a time of perfection and grace is coming.Rabbi Curt Landry had a spiritual experience that changed them in a dramatic way for the Christian world, and they now have a ministry that does good in all different areas for Jewish and Arabic people.The podcast discusses the importance of having long-term goals and a plan to fix the world, as well as loving others even when they reject you.Both William and Rabbi Curt Landry discuss that focusing on what you want and designing your own ninety-year plan is one of the most valuable lessons you can learn.Despite the volatile situation in the Middle East, the speakers are optimistic about what can be achieved through love and abundance---TIME STAMPS:00:00 - Prelude4:25 - The spiritual side of the conflict.13:55 - Using spiritual reconciliation to bring reconciliation.25:37 - Filling the void of the orphan spirit.31:32 - How can we say no to God?37:29 - Pro-life clinic in Tel Aviv.43:07 - Fulfilment of bible prophecy.48:29 - Learning to be good to others.54:35 - It's all about loving yourself.59:29 - ENDThank you for listening to GODMODE™: Win or Win BiggerIf you are interested in UPGRD Your Mind, visit us at: https://upgrd.com to book a call with one of our team members.
