Your poor, your tired, your huddled masses, yearning to be…deported – Ep 37


We have our first t-shirt for sale!!!  Click here to check it out.

Promises matter.  Alliances matter. When America acts, it seldom acts alone, but often the promises made to those allies are forgotten in the face of new priorities, or in this case…new presidents.  Here, the guys and I discuss the possibility that Vietnamese refugees in the U.S. could be deported under changes by President Trump, changes that fly in the face of long standing policy that protected those refugees from deportation, along with recent conflict between India and Pakistan and after effects of the government shutdown on military operations in the Coast Guard and elsewhere.

Fortress On A Hill (FOH) Podcast
Fortress On A Hill (FOH) Podcast
Chris Henrikson / Danny Sjursen / Keagan Miller / Jovanni Reyes

The United States has become synonymous with empire and endless war, American troops sit in 70% of the world's countries, and yet, most Americans don't know that. The military is joined disproportionately by a 'warrior caste’ whom carry this enormous burden, making a less diverse force and ensuring most of society doesn't see their sacrifice. And American tax dollars, funding hundreds of billions in unnecessary spending on global hegemony, are robbed from the domestic needs of ordinary Americans. We aim to change that. Join Danny, Henri, and Keagan, three leftist combat veterans, as they discuss how to turn the tide against endless war and repair the damage America has caused abroad.

FOH is hosted, written, and produced by Chris ‘Henri’ Henrikson, Danny Sjursen, and Keagan Miller.
