Welcome to The View from the Front podcast. My name is Stan and this is the Nov 30th edition.
In this episode, we’re going to cover the following subjects:
In U.S. news, American troops were in action at sea, and I also wanted to highlight some service that American troops have done that you’ve probably not heard about.
In Ukraine news, Russians are suffering some horrendous casualties that I want to discuss. I also want to give a quick update on funding from the United States, as well as share an update on those long-range ATACM missiles. After all, it’s been 40 days since they were last used. What does this mean? What is it saying?
In China news, a first has happened in the South China Sea that I want to cover.
And then in tech news, I want to share a couple of news stories about drones and their rapidly increasing advances.
Finally, we will share plenty of motivation and wisdom.

If you just happened to stumble by, let me say a quick word about what we’re doing here.
For those who don’t know, my name is Stan R. Mitchell, and I’m a prior Marine and journalist.
Every week, I primarily do three things with my podcast:
Cover emerging hotspots and foreign policy news that you absolutely should know. (Why I focus on foreign policy...)
Work to unite our country and remind us of how lucky we are to live in America. (My thoughts on the division in this country...)
And finally, I always share plenty of motivation and wisdom at the end of each episode.
Take a listen to the podcast. I really hope you get something out of it.
Selected source notes for podcast and transcript above.
Here is the best-kept secret about U.S. military aid to Ukraine: Most of the money is being spent here in the United States. That’s right: Funds that lawmakers approve to arm Ukraine are not going directly to Ukraine but being used stateside to build new weapons or to replace weapons sent to Kyiv from U.S. stockpiles. Of the $68 billion in military and related assistance Congress has approved since Russia invaded Ukraine, almost 90 percent is going to Americans, one analysis found.
House Speaker Mike Johnson discusses the Ukraine funding bill below:
Russian casualties have skyrocketed, to the highest levels of the war.
Video proof of those losses. (Viewer discretion advised on next two videos.)
And in Russia, they’re now bragging about taking Europe and awaiting a flood of American “migrants.” 🤣
Finally, where are the ATACMs?!
PHILLIPS P. OBRIEN says it’s been 40 days since we’ve last seen them. What gives? (Link below; also an excellent resource to further your knowledge on Ukraine.)
Drones coming to carriers at sea.
Video of a drone carrying a drone.
That’s it for this edition.
As a reminder, please be kind and try your best to love your fellow Americans.
So many men and women have sacrificed, fought, and died to keep this country together the past 240-plus years. Please work daily to unite our country again. The vast majority of Americans are decent, loving, great people.
Also, please try to be a better person each and every day. Try to be kinder on social media and how you interact with others with whom you disagree.
Please join me again in our next episode, and please stay safe until then.
Don’t forget: You can comment anytime — I try to monitor those. You can also reach out privately at: firstname.lastname@example.org. (You can say “hi,” vent, or send news tips! I love all three of those things!)
