It’s important to hold Trump’s feet to the fire.  F. William Engdahl returns to Guns & Butter to share his unique, multi-disciplinary vision and geopolitical perspective.  I don’t agree with Engdahl on many details regarding Trump and other subjects, but Engdahl is a genius.  His perspective is worth your time.

“Guns & Butter” is one of the best radio programs around.  I’ve been listening to it since Bonnie Faulkner’s very first show well over a decade ago. “Guns & Butter” is quality “fake news.” 😉  – Eric Dubin, Managing Editor, The News Doctors.

“The Incredible Trump Deception”

TND Podcast Spotlight:  Guns & Butter (Show #356)

We examine some of the early political appointments of the new Trump administration and the geopolitical shift in American foreign policy that it represents. The powers behind the Trump presidency – the Netanyahu Likud connected think-tank, The Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, including General Mike Flynn, Walid Phares; James Woolsey, and Michael Ledeen, among others; an attack on the nuclear deal with Iran; the failed strategy of using radical political Islam to destabilize and destroy countries; a strengthened alliance between Russia, China and Iran; the failed CIA coup in Turkey of July 2016; a strong dollar policy and a weakened European Union; rising interest rates and concomitant flight capital to a Wall Street safe-haven; making America great again by re-building Americas defense industry infrastructure.
