Is Putin winning or losing? It looks like his war effort is not going according to plan, and that he underestimated Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, the resistance of the Ukrainian military, and the unity of the international response. But could Putin quickly turn things around? What would that look like?

Congressman Mike Gallagher brings his perspective. Gallagher served for seven years on active duty in the United States Marine Corps, including two deployments to Iraq. He was a national security aide on Capitol HIll – having served as a top staffer on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Back in Wisconsin, he worked for an energy and supply chain company. He’s also a warrior scholar, having earned a bachelor’s degree from Princeton University, a master’s degree in Security Studies from Georgetown University, a second in Strategic Intelligence from National Intelligence University, and a PhD in International Relations from Georgetown.

Congressman Gallagher, who is from Green Bay and represents Wiconsin’s 8th Congressional District — which covers northeastern Wisconsin — currently serves on the House Armed Services Committee, where he is the Ranking Member on the Subcommittee on Military Personnel. He also serves on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

From his perch as a senior Member of the Military Personnel Subcommittee, Congressman Gallagher has been sounding the alarm about the woke agenda he believes is infecting the US military, and why it’s dangerous to our security.

    Difficult for a Chicago Bears fan to say out loud but – Mike Gallagher for President? Or is he more valuable in Congress?

    Excellent conversation and guest. The more I hear from Gallagher the more I like him.

    After years of stupidity from Obama, Trump and Biden, not to mention Democrats in Congress, it is so refreshing to hear from Mr. Gallagher. Gives me hope.

    So glad I listened to this. Thanks for the recommendations @franzdrumlin and @nickp. As Dennis Miller would say, I like the cut of Rep. Gallagher’s jib. My son is in the Marine Reserves so I’m glad someone is trying to redirect the military to their appropriate job.
