The Boys are reinforced by Will Costantini, Col USMC (ret) as they discuss being on General Mattis’s bad side and then… What saves the democracy from more sequestration and more disfunction?
Monday, June 12 2017, Hour 1
Alex Hollings, former Sgt USMC and currently a Contributing Editor at SOFREP.COM joined us to talk current events.
Alex discusses his thoughts on (1) James Comey and his conduct as the FBI Director, (2) Kathy Griffin and how each “side” is incapable self criticism to our collective detriment and (3) Mosul — how are the Iraqis doing and where are the civilian casualties coming from?
Alex is a savvy writer and always an interesting guest, you can find his work here.
THE BEST OF ALL MARINE RADIO: Tony Zinni spends almost two hours discussing leadership and world events with Mike McNamara.
The interview covers General Zinni’s career and lessons learned from Vietnam, Somalia, Desert Storm, Iraq and his experiences at CENTCOM. Of particular interest are his thoughts on the moral obligations of leaders, he reflects on the moral dilemmas of Secretary of State Colin Powell and JCS-J3 LtGen Greg Newbold — incredible candid stuff.
One of the greatest Marines of our generation, this interview puts his great gifts on display.
Justin Constantine, LtCol USMC (ret), joins Mac to discuss The Fairness Doctrine, the 4th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and the UCMJ and the biggest problem facing the nation.
Brigadier General Dave Furness, USMC, joined ALL MARINE RADIO for a blunt one-hour and forty-five minute interview. Here’s what was covered:
(1) Online behavior for Marines, the UCMJ and 1st and 4th Amendment rights
(2) The marines united investigation
(3) Can the Marine Corps monitor the internet for such behavior or is it an “unreasonable search”?
(4) Recruit Training: where is the Marine Corps relative to gender integration at MCRD?
(5) Recruiting females “more suited” for the Marine Corps and “poolee standards” for females
(6) Can the “OCS” model (female platoons in male companies) work for all recruits at Parris Island?
(7) DISCIPLINE. Privacy in the BEQ is an issue the Marine Corps struggles with; does living like civilians in a dormitory contribute to the feeling that Marines are still mostly civilians and therefore civilian behavioral standards apply?
A candid interview with the second Marine General Officer to speak at length on the issue.
Mac and Justine Constantine, LtCol USMC (ret), discuss current events of the week.
MajGen Jarvis Lynch, USMC (ret) joins us to discuss the challenge of adapting an organization with high values to the sinking secular values of our nation. “Marines United” is just one example of the disparity between behavior that is now common in our nation and USMC “Corps Values.”
JUSTIN CONSTANTINE: LtCol USMC (ret), joins us to discuss the President’s speech. ALWAYS INTERESTING.
Mac discusses the “Vito Corleone” School of Leadership
Mac analyzes two audio cuts from former President George W. Bush TV appearances on February 27, 2017; one from the Today Show on NBC and another from Fox’s Sean Hannity… a great illustration of how hosts parse questions seeking to make very specific news headlines.
WHAT ABOUT THE TRUTH?
The boys discuss how people on both sides of a debate believe in extremes, the need for civil discourse and listening in our partisan culture and the fact that perception is NOT reality.
Mac also shared LIVE audio from the landing on Iwo Jima. Absolutely riveting audio of Marines going ashore on D-Day, February 19, 1945 on the black coral sand of Iwo Jima. MUST LISTEN.
