On this episode, Ben sits down with Chicago mother Jeannette Cooper to share the story of her 12-year-old daughter, who she has not seen in nearly four years.

Jeannette explains the circumstances in which she lost custody of her daughter because she failed to understand her “gender identity” and describes the minimal amount of contact she has had with her daughter since losing custody in 2019. Later, Jeanette dives into the psychology and reasonings behind children abandoning their biological gender, and she outlines the legal steps that she has taken to reunite with her daughter.

Plus, Ben weighs in on the recent Senate vote to add Sweden and Finland into NATO, how this affects American foreign policy in Eastern Europe, and how the move signals a departure from Trump-era foreign policy for the Republican party.
