GRP 124- “We accomplish what others cannot accomplish and go where others cannot go.

 

On for this week’s podcast is my co host Tim Kolczak and U.S. intelligence specialist JT Patten. Patten, became involved in the intelligence and counter terrorism shortly after 9/11. Possessing a skill set uniquely suited to working specific elements of intelligence operations we were able to discuss some of what that entails. We touched on what is known as the “Deep State” as well as conspiracy theories, funding, and many other topics. Enjoy

GRP 123-Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that- The Guardian Group: Countering Child Sex Trafficking 

 

 

On for the podcast in our latest episode are retired Special Missions Lieutenant Colonel Jeff Tiegs, and the founder of the Guardian Group Jeff Keith. LT Tiegs became aware of the crime of child sex trafficking while disrupting terrorist networks overseas. 

 

After a brief stint in Law Enforcement and the Air Force Special Operation’s, Jeff Keith continued to serve but as a Pastor. Jeff, in his travels overseas learned of the problem and returned to the United States intending to scale it down. We discussed the scope of the crime, ways that the hotel industry and communities can deny pimps and traffickers grounds to operate, and much more. Enjoy.

The Modern Drawbridge Survey is intended to help you better understand the complexities of sex trafficking in the U.S. and how communities can intervene and potentially disrupt the exploitation cycle. The concept is grounded in previous research by William J. Ryan and Judith H. Katz. Guardian Group has been presenting this dilemma to groups across the country for the past year.  See the link below:

GRP 67-Green Beret Medics| TBI| Hand To Hand Death Match| RIP Mike Lamb

GRP 67-Back on the podcast for this week's episode is Michael Rodriguez a former Army Green Beret Medic (18 Delta). He sits on President George W. Bush's Military Service Initiative Advisory Council which engages in a wide range of activities that support veterans. Last but not least he's the Chief Ambassador for the Green Beret Foundation. On with us is a friend of Mikes a former 18 Delta Mark Belden. Mark has an interesting story with a background in mixed martial arts. We talk TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury), Mike share's a story of when he treated an infant over in Afghanistan, and Mark shares a story of a time when he got into a hand to hand combat situation with a high-value target in Iraq.

 

My good friend Chantel Taylor served in combat with junior combat medic named Mike Lamb in the British Army. Chantel was the senior medic on that kinetic rotation into Southern Afghanistan. Mike went on to get attached to British Special Forces and served as a Medic with the SAS. He recently lost his battle with cancer at the age of 32. Below is a link to the Gofundme campaign used to raise money for his young family. I encourage anyone who can to contribute to help out this warrior's wife and child during these difficult times. https://www.gofundme.com/for-the-family-of-mike-lamblamby

 

 Below is an excerpt from the show:

 

John: Mark can you share a deployment story with the audience?

 

Mark Belden: This isn't something I'm proud of, but it happened.  We were on a mission in Iraq. We knew this guy was a bad cat killed a lot of coalition, and American forces. We got the lead on him. We caught him sleeping on the roof. He was like 300 plus pounds. Heavyweight lifter. We double cuffed him with flex cuffs. The interrogator called me in to stay with him for a second. The interpreter was standing in the back. He was about 2 feet from me. Stone cold look in his eyes. He said something to the terp. He said you might as well kill me now because I'm not going to talk. I said ok whatever man, I’m just here to hang out with you. He took a huge breath and snapped both of his flex cuff's. He charged at me. I think it was a left hook that immediately caught him. He lifted me up. A 45 second battle ensued. One of the guys came into the room and pulled em out. The guy ended up dying. I was later investigated for it. I was in a top shape. A one-minute fight for my life put a lot of things into perspective.

GRP 16-MACV-SOG, Rucking Raiders, Operators

GRP 16- This is a very special episode for several reasons. One we have Nate the team leader from Rucking Raiders on again who is finishing up the 700 plus mile march organized by his organization consisting of MARSOC operators honoring their fallen brothers who were killed last year in a training accident.

 

The second reason this is a special episode is we have the distinct honor and privilege of having MACV-SOG Operator Mike Stahl the one zero, or team leader of RT (Recon Team) Michigan for CCN (Command and Control North). Military Assistance Command, Vietnam – Studies and Observations Group (MACV-SOG) was a highly classified, multi-service United States special operations unit which conducted covert unconventional warfare operations prior to and during the Vietnam War.

 

Operators from this unit took on the most dangerous missions of the Vietnam War, and are some of the most decorated soldiers in the history of the United States Military.

 

Joining the conversation is my good friend Jason Economos who is an author and Vietnam expert. Jason wrote an excellent book on MACV-SOG called Gentle Propositions. The book is available on amazon.com. For anyone interested in opting in to our Survival mindset paid webinar send an email to podcast@globalrecon.net
