    24:43
    Iranian-born British citizen and political activist Vahid Beheshti joins us from London outside the Foreign Office. He explains the latest on the conflict in the Middle East, notably the two attacks on Pakistan and Iraq, and what that means for the region. We also discuss the urgent need for the United Kingdom to remove all its diplomatic corps from Iran or risk them being taken hostage by Iran's theocracy. And we have a lot more, too.Photo credit: Cropped version of a photo from Mydust, CC BY-SA 4.0, via Wikimedia Commons.

  • 1. CC: How Much Has California Overspent? It's a mystery @JCBliss @RealConstable

    20:47
     California’s government can’t agree on how much it has overspent: $68 billion, $38 billion, or $100 billion. What’s the difference? It's only money. On top of that, the California Democrats want to introduce a wealth tax. What could possibly go wrong? We have that and more. Joining us from Orange County, California, is Jeff Bliss, a senior correspondent at California Flow Magazine, a regular contributor on John Batchelor's CBS radio show Eye on the World, and heard on many other radio stations across California.Photo credit: FOTO:FORTEPAN / Angyalföldi Helytörténeti Gyűjtemény, CC BY-SA 3.0, via Wikimedia CommonsPhoto description: Airplane, Soviet brand, second World War, transport, fair, fighter plane, wreck, BudapestThe intro is a shortened version of a clip by Richard Wagner, EEF OAL-1, licensed via Wikimedia Commons, performed by:Conductor: James Allen GähresEnsemble: Ulm PhilharmonicLocation: CCU Einsteinsaal, UlmOpera: The Valkyrie (Die Walküre)Movement: Prelude from Act 3Date 3 June 2014The thunderclap outro is a shortened version of a clip by Jonathan Hunt, CC BY-SA 4.0, via Wikimedia Commons.
  • 22. 2024's Biggest Risks to the West: The U.S. Election and the Ukraine-Russia War @RobinHorsfall

    26:19
    Former paratrooper and SAS soldier Robin Horsfall makes his debut on Constable Confidential. Among other gallantry, he was one of the team that rescued hostages from the Iranian Embassy in London in 1980.For the last two years, Horsfall has chronicled the Russia-Ukraine war and recently published a book on the conflict titled "Slava Ukraine Who Dares Shares." In this show, he puts forward the case that the Western powers must continue to support Ukraine and ensure that Russia doesn't win. Failure to do so would likely be awful. We also discuss the risks of one particular candidate winning the U.S. presidency later this year. Plus, he names some favorite authors and proffers advice for aspiring writers.Contact Horsfall via https://robinhorsfall.co.uk.Signed Horsfall books available via www.robinhorsfall.com Unsigned Slava Ukraine, Who Dares Shares available from Amazon.com or Amazon.co.ukPicture credit: HorsfallPhoto description: Robin HorsfallThe intro is a shortened version of a clip by Richard Wagner, EEF OAL-1, licensed via Wikimedia Commons, performed by:Conductor: James Allen GähresEnsemble: Ulm PhilharmonicLocation: CCU Einsteinsaal, UlmOpera: The Valkyrie (Die Walküre)Movement: Prelude from Act 3Date 3 June 2014The thunderclap outro is a shortened version of a clip by Jonathan Hunt, CC BY-SA 4.0, via Wikimedia Commons.
