The Right Take

74 EpisodesProduced by therighttakeguysWebsite

Here, on The Right Take, Eric Lendrum and Jacob Grandstaff analyze the issues and motivations that define the internationalist, imperial, and oligarchical nature of the United States, how we got here, and how we can fight back.


The Roots of the Deep State

In this episode, Eric and Jacob discuss the Global Citizen's Vax Live, which kicked off the post-lockdown era of live concerts, and Virginia's Republican gubernatorial nominee Glenn Youngkin.

For the main topic, they dig into the roots of the national security "Deep State" and the ideology behind its goons that Americans are forced to fund with their tax dollars, beginning with the Truman Doctrine.
