Gary Stubblefield, Chairman of Special Operations For America and a 20+ year military veteran welcomes you to SOFA! SOFA is a Super PAC dedicated to recruiting, supporting, and getting military veterans elected into the House and Senate at the Federal Level. Just a few decades ago, many of our representatives had military experience and even full military careers before going into politics; whereas now only a minority percentage do. These earlier veterans understood national defense, security of our nation, and how to advise the government administration and departments on strategic and tactical considerations. They understood the value of keeping our promises with our military men, women, and families. We need to reinfuse our nation's military heroes back to elected offices in DC to strengthen our vital interests. If you wish to learn more about SOFA, please visit our website at SOFORAMERICA.org. And now let's begin today's program

An American college student who tearfully apologized for trying to steal a political propaganda poster from his hotel in Pyongyang, the North Korean capital, was sentenced on Wednesday to 15 years of prison and hard labor.
The punishment of the student, Otto F. Warmbier, infuriated the White House and elicited strong condemnations from other officials and rights activists. It came amid rising tensions between North Korea and the United States over North Korea's unbridled nuclear weapons and missile testing.
Gerard Haran talks with Gary about What Justice Antonin Scalia's Death Means. Antonin Scalia, the sharp-tongued U.S. Supreme Court justice who sought to limit constitutional protections to those envisioned by the nation's founders, has died. He was 79. Scalia was a polarizing force on the court and across the country. Scalia was the court's leading proponent of a strict interpretation of federal statutes, preferring to parse statutory language rather than sift through volumes of legislative history. He sought out bright lines in the law and criticized the multifaceted balancing tests used by colleagues.
