While US military operations in the Middle East seem like they are on the other side of the world, they have real impacts on the everyday lives of Americans.

Foreign Policy Focus is a podcast hosted by me, Kyle! It covers current events overseas and how those events affect you at home. While US military operations in the Middle East seem like they are on the other side of the world, they have real impacts on the everyday lives of Americans. Wars are the most costly of all US government actions and politicians use them to strip away rights of Americans. Knowing what your government is doing around the globe will give you insight into what they are doing at home.

On FPF #329, I update the fallout from the Mueller probe ending without indictments of Trump. 48% of American's continue to believe 'Trump - or his campaign - colluded with Russia. Only 9% of Americans changed their minds after the Mueller investigation ended and the Barr summary was published. Senator Rand Paul dropped a bombshell on the Russiagate story, alleging that John Brennan was behind the Steele Dossier being included in the Intelligence Assessment. I explain the importance of John Brennan's role in Russiagate and the hysteria that causes so many Americans to believe a lie.

On FPF #328, I break down how heavily armed American mercenaries got arrested outside the Haitian Central bank. The Intercept reports Haiti's president bribed a cutout to hire the Americans. The Americans then attempted to help the cutout transfer $80 million at the central bank. The operation fell apart when a security guard called the police. The State Department then helped the mercenaries escape justice in Haiti.

On FPF #327, I run an interview from the Peace and Liberty Podcast with host Steven Clyde. Steven asks me questions about the Russiagate conspiracy and the end of the Mueller investigation.

Will Porter returns to FPF to discuss the New Zealand shooter's motive. The shooter wanted a war on the 'Grey Zone' in an attempt to try to drive cultures further apart. He was willing to commit disgusting acts of violence to achieve those ends. Will compares the shooter's attack on the 'Grey Zone' to Islamic jihadists. We argue that exposing the shooter's ideological target can help to expose and reject it.

On FPF #325, I cover several recent news stories. In 2020, the Trump Administration is seeking an $85 billion budget for intelligence agencies. US sanctions against Venezuela and Iran combined with OPEC oil production cuts could cause gas prices to rise. Secretary of State Pompeo claims that withdrawing from the Yemen War would empower Iran.

On FPF #323, I discuss Congress passing the Yemen War Powers Bill. The bill calls for an end of the US involvement in the Saudi-led war against Yemen. The bill continues to face hurdles and Trump has threatened to veto the bill. I explain what is in the bill and why it is so important to end the US role in this war.

On FPF #322, I discuss a report finding that the US sold more weapons than any other country. I explain how the elites behind the military-industrial complex benefit from the US welling weapons to 98 countries in 2018. The weapon makers buy influence in the US to help facilitate weapon sales. However, the policy is immoral and hurts the American people.

On FPF #321, I discuss Chelsea Manning's heroic refusal to testify in a secret federal court and her return to prison. Chelsea refused to testify in an unfair court by invoking her 1st, 4th, and 6th Amendment rights. Her rights were ignored, and she was thrown in jail. I explain why Chelsea's stand is so important for freedom, truth, and ending wars.

Will Porter returns to FPF to discuss the final OPCW report on the alleged chemical weapons attack in Douma, Syria. Will reviews all the evidence and timeline of the events. Will argues a lot of the evidence contradicts the establishment narrative. Will presents the case for a false flag attack.

On FPF #319, I discuss the endless US War on Terror. The US has issued a $1 million reward for information on the son of Osama bin Laden. The younger bin Laden is rising through the ranks of al-Qaeda. Americans are born before 9/11 are starting to enlist in the military and will soon be fighting al-Qaeda. I explain how the first generation of the 'War on Terror' has been a failure for the US and continuing the fight will bankrupt the US.

On FPF #318, I break down what happened between Trump and Kim in Hanoi. The meeting ended without an agreement. However, Kim likely offered Trump a deal to shut down parts of North Korea's nuclear program in exchange for civilian sanctions relief. Jeffery Lewis argues Trump missed a good opportunity by passing on the deal.

On FPF #317, I discuss Trump's meeting with Kim Jong-un and US talks with the Taliban. The meeting with Kim ended early and without a peace agreement. Trump said the talks were positive. In Qatar, US officials are meeting with Taliban leadership. The talks will be centered on US troops withdrawing from Afghanistan.
