OUR GUEST – Dr. Sebastian Gorka

  • Dr. Gorka, at one time deputy assistant to Pres. Trump, is an expert on national security, strategy, and counterterrorism. He holds the Major General Matthew C. Horner Distinguished Chair of Military Theory at the Marine Corps University.
  • A Breitbart News contributor and frequent guest on the Fox networks as well as the BBC, CNN, and Sky News, Dr. Gorka is the chairman of the Threat Knowledge Group and a recipient of the Joint Civilian Service Commendation, awarded by U.S. Special Operations Command.


  • How can we win today’s global conflicts in an era of renewed geopolitical rivalries with other major powers? Dr. Sebastian Gorka tackles this essential, existential dilemma, turning to Sun Tzu and American heroes Stephen Decatur, Chesty Puller, “Red” McDaniel, and Whittaker Chambers for answers.
  • With liberals unable and unwilling to believe in or fight for American values and with America reeling after 8 years of Obama’s ineffectual foreign policy, Dr. Gorka reminds readers that national willpower, not just weaponry, wins wars.
  • Within Why We Fight, Dr Gorka answers 4 key questions: what are the most serious threats to American security, how are they different from the threats of the past, what can we do to counter these threats, and how can we achieve the “perfect victory” of vanquishing our enemies without mortal combat?
