We are going to talk foreign policy. And there is a TON to discuss.
Here’s Robert C. O’Brien‘s bio:
Robert C. O’Brien is a trial lawyer with an international practice at Larson O’Brien LLP in Los Angeles. He was a senior foreign policy advisor to Governor Scott Walker and Senator Ted Cruz in the 2016 presidential campaign. Robert was a senior advisor to Governor Mitt Romney during both of his presidential campaigns. Robert was Co-Chairman of the US Department of State Public-Private Partnership for Justice Reform in Afghanistan, serving in the role under both Secretary of State Rice and Secretary Clinton. He was a presidentially appointed member of the US Cultural Property Advisory Committee, which advises the US Government on the trafficking of protected antiquities and cultural items.
Robert was nominated by President George W. Bush and confirmed by the US Senate to serve as a US Representative to the 60th session of the United Nations General Assembly, where he worked with Ambassador John Bolton. Earlier in his career, Robert was a senior legal officer with the United Nations Security Council in Geneva, Switzerland where he handled claims against Iraq arising out of the first Gulf War. He served as a major in the JAG Corps of the US Army Reserve.
The launching-off point for our conversation will be his book, which is a collection of essays on U.S. foreign policy and national security:
Here’s a summary of the book:
This book, with a forward by Hugh Hewitt, is a wake up call to the American people. The world has become steadily more dangerous under President Obama’s “lead from behind” foreign policy. The Obama Administration’s foreign policy has emboldened our adversaries and disheartened our allies. Indeed, Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran is a 1938 moment. At the same time, the U.S. military has been cut and risks returning to the hollow force days of the 1970s. O’Brien lays out the challenges and provides the common sense “peace through strength” solutions that will allow the next president to make America great again.
