This week’s radio show explores the final frontier in personal privacy, we investigate the Federalist Society and the federal courts, we present some undercovered service cuts you may have missed while everyone was out chasing Russian ghosts, and for the feature piece we explore the inherent weaknesses in the War Machine’s tripartite structure.

Fire, brimstone, and coffee! It’s time for the Thunderbolt!
