About the Show

Frank J. Gaffney, Jr. serves as Vice Chair for the Committee on the Present Danger: China. The Committee on the Present Danger: China defends America through public education and advocacy against the full array of conventional and non-conventional dangers posed by the People’s Republic of China. As with the Soviet Union in the past, Communist China represents an existential and ideological threat to the United States and to the idea of freedom—one that requires a new American consensus regarding the policies and priorities required to defeat this threat. And for this purpose, it is necessary to bring to bear the collective skills, expertise and energies of a diverse group of experts on China, national security practitioners, human rights and religious freedom activists and others who have joined forces under the umbrella of the Committee on Present Danger: China.

In 1988, Mr. Gaffney founded the Center for Security Policy. Mr. Gaffney serves at the Executive Vice Chairman for the Center. The Center has been nationally and internationally recognized as a resource for timely, informed and penetrating analyses of foreign and defense policy matters.

Mr. Gaffney is Founder, President, and CEO of Save the Persecuted Christians (STPC), a not-for-profit, non-partisan educational corporation established in 2018 to inform Americans of the global crisis of rising anti- Christian violence and to hold state and non-state persecutors accountable for their crimes against humanity.
