Recently General Mike Flynn delivered a speech worthy of a conversation and a deeper dive. Of course, General Flynn has become a renowned political figure in America, having served both Democrat and Republican presidents at the highest level of military intelligence. He is a public figure that constantly gets attention, both good and bad. If you're normal, these last few years must make you feel like we're living in an upside down world. From Covid, the 2020 election, the Afghanistan withdrawal, the Ukraine Russia war to government censorship, Chinese spy balloon and hazardous train derailments, there is so much to make us feel this way but what are we really sensing? Feeling? and experiencing? In General Flynn's speech he suggests we are already in a war and we do live in perilous times. Is this where we are in American history? This is a quote directly from that speech " We currently stand on the precipice, high above a chasm so deep that it can swallow America whole." On this episode we try to unwrap some of this General Flynn speech and more with Monica Matthews. Monica is a minister, author, grammy nominated singer, social media influencer and an inspiration. We do our best to bring hope for our future and make some sense of the upside down world on Our Lives & Politics.

“The history of America is about courageous men. Whether they are the founding fathers or members of the ‘Greatest Generation,’ who sacrificed so much during World War II to preserve freedom and democracy, they built the country. Present-day America is the richest and most successful country in the history of the world. Collectively, and individually, the men who built the country represent the benevolent American. Together, they put personal differences aside to find commonality in the pursuit of the greater good. Virtue, heroism, service, and the ultimate sacrifice was expected when it was demanded. “ From the August 2022 issue of Men & Culture magazine and the article written by Sigurd Neubauer.

I cannot answer that with certainty, I can only speculate.

Elites and politicians almost laugh at us as they fly around in private jets to save the world from environmental catastrophe. During the height of Covid, we saw Governors routinely break their own laws and rules. January 6, 2021 when a peaceful protest turned ugly in Washington D.C. the Democrats were calling it an insurrection within a couple of hours, almost in a coordinated fashion. They repeated it and repeated it until half the country believed it. Since that day about 1,000 Americans have been arrested and charged with crimes, from trespassing to sedition.
