Why Russia Fell Flat (feat. Dr. Jon Askonas)

Season 2, Ep. 82

In Today's episode of "Moment of Truth," Saurabh and Nick sit down with Dr. Jon Askonas, Assistant Professor of Politics at Catholic University, to discuss the war in Ukraine, why Russia and the West overestimated Russia's military capabilities, Putin's next move, the future of war, AI, shipping, trade, China, and if that wasn't enough; where the conservative movement went wrong and how to get back on the right track.


Jon Askonas is an assistant professor of Politics at the Catholic University of America, where he works on the connections between the republican tradition, technology, and national security. He is currently working on two books: A Muse of Fire: Why the U.S. Military Forgets What It Learns in War, on what happens to wartime innovations when the war is over and The Shot in the Dark: A History of the U.S. Army Asymmetric Warfare Group, the first comprehensive overview of a unit that helped the Army adapt to the post 9/11 era of counterinsurgency and global power competition. His writing has appeared in Russian Analytical Digest, Triple Helix, The New Atlantis, Fare Forward, War on the Rocks, and the Texas National Security Review.

The Chief: The Mark Meadows Interview (Season Finale)

Season 2, Ep. 90
In Today's Season 2 Finale of "Moment of Truth," Saurabh sits down with Mark Meadows, Senior Partner at Conservative Partnership Institute, former Chief of Staff for President Trump, former Congressman and founder of the Freedom Caucus, and author of "The Chief's Chief" to discuss how Washington really works, power plays in the halls of Congress, what it was like serving as Chief of Staff, and what we must do to get Congress working again.Mark Meadows is Senior Partner at the Conservative Partnership Institute in Washington D.C. His work is that of a true public servant. From his days in the U.S. House of Representatives to his time as President Trump’s chief of staff to his current role as CPI’s Senior Partner, Mark has worked tirelessly to shift the focus from the desires of Washington politicians to the needs of the American people. Working with the House Freedom Caucus, which he co-founded in 2015, he helped strip key provisions of Obamacare as it crushed the American people with sky-high premiums and fewer healthcare choices. He helped pass the historic tax cuts of 2017. And he changed the dynamic of the Republican conference and helped oust then-House Speaker John Boehner. Mark and his fellow Freedom Caucus members would go on to successfully defend President Trump from the bogus Russia collusion attacks and impeachment.Learn more about Mark Meadows' work:https://www.cpi.org/staff/mark-meadows/https://twitter.com/MarkMeadowshttps://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-chiefs-chief-mark-meadows/1139927284––––––Follow American Moment across Social Media:Twitter – https://twitter.com/AmMomentOrgFacebook – https://www.facebook.com/AmMomentOrgInstagram – https://www.instagram.com/ammomentorg/YouTube – https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4qmB5DeiFxt53ZPZiW4TcgRumble – https://rumble.com/c/c-695775Check out AmCanon:https://www.americanmoment.org/amcanon/Follow Us on Twitter:Saurabh Sharma – https://twitter.com/ssharmaUSNick Solheim – https://twitter.com/NickSSolheimAmerican Moment's "Moment of Truth" Podcast is recorded at the Conservative Partnership Center in Washington DC, produced by American Moment Studios, and edited by Jake Mercier and Jared Cummings.Subscribe to our Podcast, "Moment of Truth"Apple Podcasts – https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/moment-of-truth/id1555257529Spotify – https://open.spotify.com/show/5ATl0x7nKDX0vVoGrGNhAj
