NSRH28: Venezuela Weapons Smuggling Question, Border Wall & Bannon
Sam and Terry saunter through the hall of mirrors trying to de-tangle the controversy surrounding claims made by the Venezuelan government that a covert shipment of weapons from the United States was captured. It is a developing story that NSRH will be covering closely and involves alleged secret airlines, reminiscent of Air America and the Iran Contra Scandal. 21 Air LLC is a cargo charter airline that has been flying in and out of Venezuela and Colombia since at least January. 21 Air LLC also works with GPS Air Inc who ALSO work with a yet to be named entity to make frequent shipments to the South American nations. Listen as the two do their best to lay out the facts and objectively cover this delicate story. Is the CIA behind the weapons shipment or is this propaganda designed to support Maduro? NSP will be updating these notes and publishing a longer analysis of these questions shortly.
Next up, Sam interviews Jerod about a recent “town hall” (that was actually invite-only) put on by Steve Bannon and company to discuss the idea of privately funding and building a border wall between Mexico and the United States. They also discuss Trump rallies, the looming water crisis in Arizona and more.
This edition of NSRH ends with our first entertainment segment in which Sam Kilgard makes his debut discussing some upcoming scary movies directed by Guillermo Del Toro.
