There are stark social consequences for America's declining fertility. What can we do to reverse the trends we're seeing? Politicians on both sides of the aisle propose incentives and resources for family formation, it is difficult to know which options would be successful. Good ideas for policy change begin with good data, and through commitment and cooperation we can move in a pro-family, pro-life direction. Good data, however, is something that is unheard of when it comes to abortion. The abortion industry wants to hide the stories of mothers who have had traumatizing experiences with chemical or surgical abortion, and they have manipulated the government to rollback requirements on reporting. Today we are joined by an expert in data analysis to help us sift through ideas for strengthening the American family. Lyman Stone is currently an adjunct fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, a Research Fellow at the Institute for Family Studies, and a former International Economist at the US Department of Agriculture, where he forecasts cotton market conditions. His work has been covered in the The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, and numerous local outlets. Lyman, Along with our recent guest Brad Wilcox, Co authored the recent report— the divided state of our unions: family formation in post COVID-19 America.

Marriage and childbearing are at an all-time low in American history. This certainly affects the decisions of those who are considering abortion and delights those who are selling it. The emotional, financial, and relational toll of the past year and a half have left people with less optimism for family life and fewer connections to make it a reality. On the other hand, isolation and reflection in the past year have made some reconsider their desire for family. Unfortunately, the realities of pandemic life have driven many families apart. The Institute for Family Studies has conducted research pointing to this conclusion, and today we're joined by IFS and AEI scholar Brad Wilcox to discuss the results.

Since the United States recorded its first Covid-19 related fatality in February 2020, over half a million Americans have died from the virus, and an estimated 43 million total cases have been reported in the country. How was America so unprepared for this pandemic? And how can we ensure that we are prepared for the next public health disaster? Dr. Scott Gottlieb once again joined Marc and Dany to discuss his new book “Uncontrolled Spread: Why COVID-19 Crushed Us and How We Can Defeat the Next Pandemic.” He also talks about the current reality of the Delta variant and what a future with endemic COVID may look like. Dr. Gottlieb is a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute. He returned to AEI in 2019 after serving as the 23rd Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration. He has a medical degree from Mount Sinai School of Medicine and did his residency in internal medicine at the Mount Sinai Medical Center. https://www.aei.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/Transcript-Final-WTH-Gottlieb-9.28.21.pdf (Download the transcript here. )

Germany is not only a vital ally but thanks in large part to Merkel's leadership, it is a global leader of significance.

After 9/11, investigators concluded one of the factors that put America at risk was that only 57 percent of nominees for top national security positions had been confirmed by the Congress and were in place. Today, that number is just over 26 percent. Random holds on nominees for indefensibly political reasons are putting this country at risk. The two worst offenders? Senators Cruz and Hawley.
