While in Dallas, Chris Spangle took a tour of Dealey Plaza with Robin Brown of JFK Custom Tours. It was so entertaining, that he decided to invite Robin on the show to lay out what he believes happened on November 22, 1963. We spend a great deal of time discussing the rise of defense contractors and the CIA in the early days of the Cold War. Then Robin explains his theory on the why, how, and who of President John F. Kennedy's murder. Visit Robin's website at https://www.jfkcustomtours.com/. Disclaimer: I really have no idea what happened to President Kennedy, and by having Robin on I am not endorsing his ideas. Much of the history on the establishment of that period we share is absolutely true, and most facts on the assassination he shared did check out. I don't know what happened. I just found him to be a fun person you'd enjoy. Come to your own conclusions. - Chris Spangle Spangle's photos and videos from Dallas - https://www.facebook.com/chris.spangle/media_set?set=a.10104575098003994 Documentary recommendation - Coup in Camelot Book recommendation - JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters by James W.

Welcome to The Brian Nichols Show! For you first time listeners, I am your humble host, Brian Nichols, and here at The Brian Nichols Show, our goal is to educate, enlighten, and inform. Today is no exception, as I am joined by Congressman Justin Amash. Congressman Amash has been making headlines as of late, with his being the first Republican in Congress to assert that President Trump committed potentially impeachable offenses in regards to his actions and potential obstruction of justice as it relates to the Mueller Investigation. Congressman Amash joins The Brian Nichols Show to discuss his tenure in Congress, the principles that he leans on when crafting legislation, the rationale behind his public statements regarding President Trump's "impeachable offenses", and the manner in which populism and nationalism have taken over the Republican Party in an era of Trump. Later, we discuss Congressman Amash's fierce opposition to the surveillance state, focusing on his staunch opposition to the Patriot Act, FISA, and his recent attempts to reign in FISA Section 702, which would have helped put a stop to warrantless FISA surveillance. We conclude our conversation by addressing the elephant (or porcupine?) in the room... Will Congressman Amash seek to fight President Trump at the ballot box in 2020 by primarying Trump as a Republican, or rather as the top of the Libertarian Party ticket?
