Fighting for Our Freedom – an Interview with Tim Kennedy – Episode 289

Tim Kennedy is an active, Ranger qualified, Green Beret, Special Forces Sniper with tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as other locations around the globe. He’s also an MMA fighter and part of the cast of the History Channel TV show Hunting Hitler.

On the podcast, Kennedy talks about how the perception of America as being completely divided is a myth that is perpetuated by the news, because the conflict more newsworthy than stories of cooperation.

He also talks about the realities of being in the military, how genders are not the same and shouldn’t be treated as such on the front lines. Social experiments in the military cost lives. They discuss freedom and the Constitution, along with how Congress has little respect for it. Kennedy also teases the TV show he’s joining for season 3, Hunting Hitler.

Also on the podcast, Mark and Chuck talk about the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the front that it is for the government to build a massive national database, increasing the cost of borrowing, controlling how we can invest our money – and more.

They talk about Robert Mueller and consider what Trump should do about him, and Mark talks about the only other President who went up against the government as much as Trump.
