September 30th, 2022. Putin to Claim His Currently Occupied Territory in Ukraine as a Permanent Part of Russia.
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.

September 29th, 2022. The Underground Battle for the Pacific Islands.
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.

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.

September 27th, 2022. China Keeps Buying American Land Near Military Bases, Joe Biden's Team Doesn't Mind.
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.

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.

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.

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.
