Joining Audrey for this week's REELTalk - with two Islamic Jihadist attacks to our northern neighbors, and ISIS continuing to call for more Jihad on the West, are we in more peril with the weakness of this White House? Guardian of the Republic, ALLEN WEST will be back to discuss that and more. PLUS, with this ever increasing threat to our national security, this administration continues to shrink our Armed Forces...former spokesman for the Dept. of Defense, JD GORDON, will be back to discuss this AND the election. Defending freedom with diligence...we can't help ourselves!!
2014 has been a rough year for military personnel and members of the veterans community. The year began with a budget crisis, following a government shutdown and over five years without a signed and approved Federal Budget. And while some sense of fiscal responsibility seems to have finally come to the White House and Congress, things for those who still serve, and have served, continue to go from bad to worse. Forced drawdowns of active-duty military personnel continue, despite escalations of enemy action in places like Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria. The Department of Veterans Affairs, despite the firing of its top leadership and years of saying that they are, "working the problems," in fact was proven in 2014 to be a criminally corrupt and morally bankrupt organization totally failing in their chartered mission. And as if to punctuate the continuing downward spiral for individuals who serve and have served, service/veterans benefits continue to be eroded in the Fiscal Year 2015 budget, which offers only a paltry 1% pay increase to those who go into harms way for America.
To get a better sense of just what military personnel and veterans will be facing in the coming year, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@Greshamj01) for Military Monday at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest co-host this week will be journalist Donna Lyons. Herself a military/veterans spouse, Ms. Lyons writes extensively about the service/veterans community, and has her own intriguing observations regarding their present day experiences and service. Callers are encouraged to call in and offer questions and opinions to Mr. Gresham and Ms. Lyons, in an hour that we are dedicating to those who serve, those who have served, and those who will serve. Please join us.

JT Patten has worked integrally with U.S. Army Special Forces groups in intelligence training and operational intelligence support, this Veteran’s Day, Patten will be donating book sales to the Green Beret Foundation.
In a brief conversation with Patten about the Green Beret Foundation, J.T. stated, “Green berets have been perhaps my favorite SOF group to work with. For as much as I have had the opportunity to train and support them, they have mentored me, taught me, and included me with their team family on numerous occasions. Those members and my experiences with them have inspired many of the story scenes that I write. Despite my writings being fictional (and approved by the CIA and DOD for release), I feel that I need to give something back to that community. In Shadow Masters, there is a powerful scene that involves the loss of a special forces warrior and the ripple effects that many readers don’t realize can happen in the real world. It still gives me a lump in the throat to read.” The root of that segment, again, highly fictionalized according to Patten, was actually taken from Patten’s experience as a youth, which inspired him to seek a career with intelligence and special activities.

This week, John Cappel joins Michael to discuss the Overseas Contingency Operations budget. Cappel work on Budgeting for Foreign Affairs and Defense (BFAD) at the Stimson Center. John and his colleague, Russel Rumbaugh, just put out a report “A Step Backward, or More to Go? FY15 Overseas Contingency Operations Request.”
The Stimson Center focusses on global security challenges, and Cappel and his colleagues in BFAD look into where the money is actually going.
Cappel explains how OCO, or Overseas Contingency Operations, contains budget requests that are like supplemental war budgets. Historically, supplemental budgets often arose in response to some kind of unexpected event, like a natural disaster or some kind of military conflict. In the past, these supplemental budgets gave way to budgets that took into account the actual conflicts and the supplemental budget requests went away. The OCO, however, has been around for a long time now.
Many feel that the OCO budget has become a bit of a slush fund. DoD, for its part, is beginning to shift some of the OCO-type requests into the general budget.
The OCO Budget also has requests for $5 Billion for the Counterterrisom Partnership Fund (CTPF) with $4 billion for DoD and $1 billion to the Department of State. There’s also the European Reassurance Initiative with a price tag of $1 billion which mostly goes to DoD. Cappel refers to both as “head scratchers.”
