We all accept that the government doesn't tell us certain information. Now, government will say it's due to "national security" or some other reason, but what about the government using the media apparatus to actively misinform the public?
Donnie Gebert is a former government insider who outlines the extent that government goes to misinform the public, and how a "Direct Republic" could help solve a lot of our problems.

With commentators proclaiming that World War III is just around the corner due to increasing tensions between the United States and Iran, the United States' foreign policy is at the forefront of the national conversation. With conservative pundits like Ben Shapiro singing the praises of President Trump's more hawkish approach to the increasing tensions with Iran (which Shapiro has seemingly toned down in recent days), I thought it would be a great opportunity to have a former self-described "neocon" who ended up becoming a "foreign policy realist" on the show to discuss their own personal growth and change of mindset.
Joining the show is Pratik Chougule. Chougule is a researcher at Boston College's Center for International Higher Education, where he is writing a book about American universities in the greater Middle East. He was previously an executive editor at The American Conservative and managing editor at The National Interest. During the 2016 election cycle, Chougule served as policy coordinator on the presidential campaigns of Donald Trump and Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee. From 2008-2009, Chougule was a George W. Bush appointee at the State Department in the Office of the Under Secretary for Arms Control and International Security. Chougule graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Brown University and holds a JD from Yale Law School.
Listen as Chougule discusses his take on foreign policy, his critiques of the traditional neocon/hawkish foreign policy, the rising tensions of Iran, and finally his perspective of where the world stands after the 2020 election with regards to foreign relations and policy.

On this special episode of The Brian Nichols Show, Brian is joined with former White House/Congressional policy adviser and former FreedomWorks Vice President, Dean Clancy! Brian and Dean dig into the the latest budget deals, the Libertarian Party and promoting libertarian policy, and discuss how we can address the gun control issue after the latest public shooting.
Is the Trump budget actually a fiscally conservative budget? Is it better to have a government controlled by one political party, or split control between two political parties? Is the Libertarian Party actually the best means to promote libertarian principles and to enact libertarian policy? And finally, how do gun rights activists win the debate with gun control advocates?
