Melvin Goodman is the guest on this week's special fundraising month episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show. He served in the Central Intelligence Agency for 24 years as an intelligence analyst where he specialized in U.S.-Soviet relations.

Dr. Goodman is also the author of several books on national security and international relations including the most recent Whistleblower at the CIA: An Insider's Account of the Politics of Intelligence.    

He and Chauncey discuss what likely transpired with Donald Trump and Russia's efforts to undermine the 2016 presidential election, the so-called "deep state", Putin's real plans, and how Trump's failures will help China's rise to become the world's dominant power. Melvin also reflects on the nuclear perils of the Cold War and how America would be a much better place if the misadventures in Iraq and the Middle East had been avoided. 

In this week's episode, Chauncey continues to document Trump's and the GOP's war on the American people and is sickened by the professional smart people in the so-called "liberal news media" who laugh at the Great Leader's dangerous antics. Chauncey also shares a story about sexual psychology and Trump's alleged pee pee fetish. At the end of this week's podcast Chauncey is bored by the 2016 Oscar's and decides to share some white supremacist movie reviews about The Shape of Water and other Hollywood films.

    I really hope you can get more involved in a conversation with various thought leaders similar to yourself on this Sado-populism. To understand the danger these Trumpzis represent and where this is headed, I think you have to explore the nature of cultural sadism and cult-mentality in this paradigm shift in America. I can't over-stress the fact I truly believe with modern technology, available weaponry and the militancy of our national mindset it's not unlikely that a modern Dictatorship in America would far surpass the brutality and sheer volume of dead at the hands of a murderous regime set against the historical backdrop of the European dictatorships. I fear we are inching ever closer to American Style 21st century Nazism.
