The Delaware Attorney General sues a local city for passing a law that simply requires the cremation or burial of abortion children. Why? BECAUSE it will “make it more difficult and costly for pregnant persons to be able to receive lawful reproductive healthcare services.” And the Germans try to own the Nazis by scrapping a Nazi-Era law which banned doctors from giving women information about abortions. Except they're behaving kind of like Nazis. If actions speak louder than words, then these abortion-activists just told us two things: The humanity of the unborn is axiomatic and they're just like Nazis. Geez… with abortion activists like this, who needs me?

Steve Malzberg, the host of Eat the Press, comes to The P.A.S. Report Podcast to discuss how the media industrial complex has become nothing more than political activists pushing the agenda. While the media used to serve as the watchdogs of government, the fourth estate and the parts of the government have morphed into one. It's no longer about informing the public. Instead, their coverage instigates division in an effort to force confrontation. More Information Professor Giordano started The P.A.S. Report because of his unique ability to break down complex issues in news and politics in a way that appeals to everyday Americans. By introducing facts, a conservative political perspective, and some common sense, the listeners can come to their own conclusions about news, politics, and government.   The P.A.S. Report is a rapidly growing conservative political podcast. Professor Giordano also interviews great guests, including Tucker Carlson, Mollie Hemingway, Victor Davis Hanson, Miranda Devine, Newt Gingrich, Michael Knowles, Dinesh D'Souza, Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer, General Keith Kellogg, Dave Rubin, Congressman Dan Crenshaw, Congressman Lee Zeldin, Gad Saad, Lou Dobbs, Sharyl Attkisson, Brian Kilmeade, Gordon Chang, the Hodge Twins, and so many more.   If you're looking for thought-provoking content and common-sense analysis when it comes to news and politics, you've come to the right place.   Visit https://pasreport.com, and don't forget to share this episode with family, friends, and on social media.

Sam and Emma break down news from the weekend, from developments on COVID to the courts, the Jan 6th commission to labor, and more! They begin by reflecting on the 20th anniversary of the first prisoner at Guantanamo Bay, before discussing the absurd discourse around in-person education that presumes kids are learning anything in the chaos and anxiety that is pandemic schooling. They also cover the uselessness of Biden's pivot on the filibuster if he doesn't also pivot on his treatment of Manchin, and dive into Eric Adams proving his worth as the newest corrupt Mayor of NYC, shifting the blame from ally Rick Gropper after he ignored a multitude of complaints and violations in the lead-up to his building catching fire in the Bronx, killing 17. In preparation for Adams's reign, Emma and Sam also discuss some extra help Gov. Kathy Hochul's been giving, reversing course from Cuomo's pandemic cuts to Medicaid and opening it up to 200k low-income New Yorkers, and look at the developments in California healthcare that are up, and what version of Gavin Newsom we'll see with them. They wrap up the free half by discussing Sarah Palin's role in capturing the Right Wing's repressed sexuality, and how little they've come since then. And in the Fun Half: COVID callers Sam and Casey discuss the absolute infrastructure and public health failures in their states of Michigan and Georgia, respectively, and Emma and Sam tackle the antidotal evidence presented by Christopher Key.

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 61 Critical Education Theory Series, Part 2 Something is rotten in the state of Western education. The name for that rot is "Critical Pedagogy," which could also be called "Critical Education Theory," the infusion of Critical Theory into all aspects of education. How did this happen? Rather, how was it allowed to happen? Activists have been tirelessly working for over 50 years to make their way into the American, Canadian, and other Western school systems, and, as you will learn in this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, the second in a growing series on the Critical Turn in Education, they have been successful in that mission for at least the last 30 years. In this episode, second in this series, James Lindsay reads through the book that documents this horrific turn, The Critical Turn in Education (https://amzn.to/3qDpJRi), by Marxian education professor Isaac Gottesman, and makes clear exactly how our educational systems were deliberately and strategically turned Marxist over the last half century. Join him to understand exactly what's going on in our schools and why.

“The choice to be an activist is a privilege, because so many people don't have that choice.” One of - if not THE defining issue of our time is climate. To kick off the new year, we wanted to share a powerful conversation two young climate activists - Raeesah Nor Mohamed (from South Africa) and Hussein Ali Ghandour (from Lebanon) - had with our our FrieMMd of the Pod Jay Veraldi on HIS Animalia podcast. These two are not simply minorities because of the color of their skin - but because of what they believe, AND where they believe it - in some unique and challenging places -- where caring about the climate is NOT necessarily a mainstream thing. Over the past few years, you've seen an uptick in protests, marches, and demonstrations from incredible people like Raeesah and Hussein from all over the world. At COP26 in Glasgow, over 100,000 activists made their way outside the event to demonstrate and push for more decisive action from world leaders. Understand what motivates activists like Raeesah and Hussein to give everything they have to the issue of climate change. It's really worthwhile to hear where these two are coming from, how they view the world, and the actions they are taking on behalf of the climate movement. While we can't all be activists - we should all heat this chat to reflect on our own personal privilege, and more importantly - focus on where we can drive greater systemic change for us all.
