Crazy Blessing: How the Warrior Rizen Ranch Helps Heroes Heal & Families Forge Ahead

Have you ever received that phone call? The one where your life is suddenly and forever changed because someone you love has died or been permanently disabled?

Many spouses and children of service members and first responders know exactly what that's like.

So does Sara. in 2011, her husband called her to tell her he had been "nicked up" fighting in Afghanistan. But Sara knew it was likely much worse than that, and it was. Her husband was permanently blinded and blessed to be alive.

But Sara was not the only family member whose life changed that day. Her stepdaughter, Erica, was studying overseas when she received the news and it would be months before she could see her dad in person.

Being the daughter of an elite soldier, and now married to one as well, Erica, has a passion for serving military and first responder families. Her family operates the Warrior Rizen Foundation, which brings families dealing with devastating losses or permanent change to the Warrior Rizen Ranch for a time of rest, rejuvenation, and inspiration for the journey ahead.

Today, Erica and Sara discuss what it's like to get that phone call and having to accept that things will never be exactly the same again. But they also discuss how vitally important it is to keep living and striving and achieving more than you thought possible. And Erica shares how the Warrior Rizen Foundation and ranch help in that healing process.

Trump Border Chief: Horrifying to Know the Government Could Have Prevented Laken Riley's Murder but Didn't

It's hard enough to hear about how our government allows millions of people to pour across our borders illegally. It's far more painful when the failed policies lead to a heinous murder in your town, on your campus, or even in your family.

The parents of Laken Riley are living their worst possible nightmare because federal officials allowed her killer to go free after he came here illegally and then set him free again after abusing a child in New York City.

Enough! So much damage is already done because of our porous borders, but if we don't change course, the toll may be unfathomable.

Today, Sara welcomes Mark Morgan, former Acting Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Morgan will explain why Riley's murder was facilitated by horrible policies that prioritize criminals over citizens and why there may be legal recourse against the federal government.

Sara and Morgan also discuss the staggering amount of deliberate border dereliction perpetrated by the Biden administration, why the House border bill was an ideal remedy for the crisis, and why the Senate plan falls far short despite all the glowing reviews from the media.

Finally, they discuss their involvement in Border 911, a group of experts committed to restoring America's national security with a border plan that will work.

The U.S. Can Force Iran to Behave, Trump Showed Us How

How confident are you that American leaders make careful decisions when deciding to intervene in international conflicts or that they have clear, achievable objectives when they do get involved? And which global threat do you think would be easiest for the U.S. to address?

Today, Sara and retired U.S. Army Green Beret Dr. Tobias Vogt break down our leaders' failures to make strong, consistent policies and give our troops clear expectations when we send them overseas. It's all part of a fascinating conversation about the serious challenges we face throughout the world.

Dr. Vogt is also the Army's former Chief of Advanced Civil Schooling. He says since the end of the Cold War, American leaders have been very weak in setting and executing military and diplomatic policy.

Dr. Vogt specifically hammers President Biden and his team for having no strategic objective for the U.S. whatsoever in the Middle East. He further stresses that the U.S. could unilaterally force better behavior from Iran and its proxies by simply following the effective precedents set by President Trump. He also details the failed foreign policy mindset that Biden and President Obama refuse to relinquish.

Speaking of Trump, Dr. Vogt explains why he thinks Trump will be able to bring a fairly quick end to the Russia-Ukraine war and why he is very critical of Biden's "blank check" approach to Ukraine. He also shares why he thinks that policy is bad for the Ukrainian people.

They also break down the massive failure of U.S. presidents over the years to engage with our neighbors in the Western Hemisphere, how it directly impacts our nation, and provides openings for our adversaries.

Finally, they highlight Dr. Vogt's new book "Ghosts of Samarra," which tells the story of the outstanding soldiers he led during the Iraq War.

Riley Gaines: Affirming Gender Lies and Delusions is Evil

Is your daughter wondering whether to play girls sports because boys are allowed to play with them? Or maybe they've given up trying because boys who "identify" as girls have major physical advantages over them or they do not want to share a locker room with them.
Sara's 11-year-old daughter is involved in gymnastics, cross country, and tennis. and she is already worried about what her athletic future will look like if boys are openly allowed and encouraged to play on those teams if they consider themselves girls.

This is not just a hypothetical issue as the cultural left would want you to believe. It's happening in college, high schools, and beyond. It's robbing girls and women of athletic opportunities and forcing them into extremely uncomfortable situations.

Riley Gaines was an All-American swimmer at the University of Kentucky. She tied for first in the nation in her event with a man presenting himself as a woman and swimming for the University of Pennsylvania.

Gaines is now the most prominent figure pushing state and federal lawmakers to reclaim sanity and to keep boys and men out of girls and women's sports.

Today, Sara and Riley discuss the significant progress being made to protect our girls, why coaches and parents are often afraid to speak up and insist on common sense in athletics, and what you can do to protect your kids and your community.

Is Another U.S. Border in Serious Danger?

America's southern border is a mess. The Biden administration's dereliction leaves every state and every neighborhood at greater risk of crime and suffering losses from the deadly poisons trafficked into the U.S.

But what if I told you another U.S. border is under serious threat - not from millions of unvetted migrants but from a dictator who loves to rattle his saber and has a history of invading his neighbors?

In recent weeks, we've seen Russian military jets blatantly violating U.S. airspace over Alaska. President Vladimir Putin has also suggested that certain lands that once belonged to the Russian empire should be part of the country again. And more than a few observers have suggested that Putin includes Alaska on that list.

So how serious is the Russian threat to Alaska? Is Putin just posturing or does he have something else in mind? And is the U.S. prepared militarily if Russia gets even more aggressive?

Today, Sara explores all of these issues and much more with L. Shane Land, a disabled combat veteran of the Iraq War. Mr. Land also served as a U.S. Air Force security specialist, a U.S. Army intelligence analyst, and a civilian federal intelligence analyst for the Department of the Army. He is based in Alaska.
