I had the privilege of guest-hosting for my friend Buck Sexton on his “The Buck Sexton Show” for three days in a row.

On night #1, we discussed everything from impeachment, to Iran policy with the Hudson Institute’s Michael Doran, the China Phase One trade deal in context of the nature of the totalitarian and imperialist Chinese Communist Party regime, citizenship and the assault on sovereignty and separation of powers with Dr. John Eastman, plus much more.
