Rick Roberts: Ok FBI, Where's The Beef?

A few tidbits of information is slowly trickling out about the FBI raid on Mar-A-Lago. Some of the items the FBI took the trouble to obtain a search warrant for: a cocktail napkin, a phone list, charts, slide decks, letters, memos, maps, talking points, a birthday dinner menu, schedules, and more. Lock Trump up and throw away the key!  Agents even went through Melania's clothes! After all this, the FBI had better not only produce the smoking gun but the warm body!

Rick Roberts: What's The Purpose Of Trump FBI Raid? It's About YOU!

The political world was rocked by the FBI raiding President Trump's Mar-A-Lago compound. FBI agents, armed with a search warrant, went to Trump's home allegedly looking for documents that were taken from the White House without authorization. Really? At best that's a misdemeanor! We needed FBI agents rappelling from the roof and kicking in the door? But here's the thing: forget documents and all that. This raid was aimed right at YOU! How?

Rick Roberts: Trump at CPAC was a Hit!

Did you catch President Trump at CPAC? He was great as ever! The audience also thought so. A straw poll was conducted and he came out on top. He didn’t mention running in 2024. Why not? Should Trump just declare his candidacy now? Or is he playing cat-and-mouse with the left? If he isn’t running, who would you like to see run in 2024?

Rick Roberts: Is China Crazy? Or Crazy Like A Fox?

A CNN article argues that rather than trying to invade and conquer Taiwan, they only want to cut Taiwan off and strangle it. If China can control Taiwan, they control the South China Sea and a good chunk of the world's trade. And what would the U.S. do about it? Are the Chinese Communists crazy? Or crazy like a fox? Lt. Col. (Ret.) Tony Shaffer joins Rick to talk about what China's endgame is on NewsTalk 820 WBAP ...

Rick Roberts: Who Would You Like To Run For President In 2024?

CPAC 2022 is in Dallas this year, and President Trump is scheduled to speak on Saturday, Aug. 6th. There is two years to go until the next presidential election, but it's never too early to speculate: who will run for President in 2024? FOX News conducted a straw poll, and most of the CPAC attendees are still Trump supporters...but they also like Florida governor Ron DeSantis!

Rick Roberts: Do The Chinese See Weakness In Joe Biden?

Uh-oh! China is really, REALLY mad this time! Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan, which China claims as its own. They're really upping the tensions in the region over this. Why?
