A newly elected official in Missouri says his emphasis in his role as state auditor will be to focus on combating left-wing "environmental, social, and governance"—or "ESG"—policies with respect to investments. "Well, as the state treasurer, I've gained ... a lot more exposure to ESG issue than pretty much anybody in elected office in Missouri. So, I will try to at least use that knowledge that I've gained, and that experience that I have being on the board of the [state] pension plan and working on these issues, to help," Missouri State Treasurer Scott Fitzpatrick, who was elected this month as the state's next auditor, told The Daily Signal. He will take his new office on Jan. 9."There's going to be legislation in Missouri this coming session dealing with ESG issues and proxy voting, and things like that. So, as somebody who's been very involved in that conversation at the board level on a pension plan, as well as having been exposed to it a lot through my engagements with the State Financial Officers Foundation, with [The Heritage Foundation], with you guys, the stuff that I've been able to learn, I'm going to be a part of that legislative process in helping develop that legislation," Fitzpatrick said. (The Daily Signal is the news outlet of The Heritage Foundation.)The incoming Missouri state auditor explained why he's against the use of environmental, social, and governance policies.Fitzpatrick explained: Essentially, the reason I am against ESG being used as a tool for investing purposes is because it prioritizes nonfinancial factors in investment decisions, and how you're managing people's investments, over those financial—or what we call pecuniary—factors that should be the priority when you're managing somebody else's money and have a responsibility to them to generate the best return possible on their investment.Fitzpatrick, a Republican, joins "The Daily Signal Podcast" to discuss why he is against those environmental, social, and governance policies; how he will continue his work combating those policies as state auditor; and why he thinks he was able to flip the auditor's seat, which had been held by a Democrat for nearly seven years.

An apartment fire in Urumqi, China, left at least 10 dead and injured at least nine others on Nov. 24, sparking nationwide and global protests against the Chinese Communist Party's “zero-COVID” policy. “It was really sparked by the fire in Urumqi. So, China has sort of a practice in its ‘zero-COVID' policy of when it locks down cities or buildings,” said Michael Cunningham, a research fellow in The Heritage Foundation's Asian Studies Center. (The Daily Signal is the news outlet of The Heritage Foundation.)“Lots of times it'll erect barricades or sometimes even lock or weld people inside. And so, we're not sure if any of that happened, but there's a public perception that that was probably the case, and that that's one of the reasons why so many people died in that fire,” he said.Cunningham also discussed what the protesters are risking by speaking out against the communist regime. “Well, the protestors are risking everything. The [Chinese Communist Party] is an extremely powerful and an extremely brutal regime. It does not accept any dissent. So, I have to say, protests are not unheard of in China. They're actually quite common, but they're usually against local officials,” he explained.“And so the stakes there aren't nearly as high as when you're literally standing up as some protesters have and said the [Chinese Communist Party] and [President] Xi Jinping have to go. Or when they're standing up and saying, ‘No more totalitarianism. We want democracy,' which is what we heard in some of the protests, as well, over the weekend,” Cunningham added. Cunningham joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to discuss the ongoing civil unrest throughout China and protests around the world, the likelihood that Xi could be ousted, and the Vatican's criticism of the Chinese Communist Party.

Dallas Jenkins was considering hanging up his filmmaking hat after his movie “The Resurrection of Gavin Stone” bombed at the box office in 2017. “I got to a place that weekend where I didn't know if I would ever make another movie again,” Jenkins says. “When you have a failure, it's hard to find people who are eager and willing to finance your next venture.” With the support of his church, the film director decided to jump back into making a short movie about the birth of Christ. It was a hit. “Long story short, that short film ended up being the catalyst … [for] 16,000 people all over the world investing over $10 million into season one of “The Chosen,” and the rest is history,” Jenkins says. “The Chosen,” based on the Gospels, is a streaming dramatic series that follows the ministry of Jesus and his disciples. Episodes from season one and two have been streamed over 400 million times. On Nov. 18, episodes one and two of the third season of “The Chosen” will premiere in theaters. “Season three is kind of this transition moment of the disciples going, 'Yay, we're officially Jesus' apostles. Why aren't things awesome?' They have to wrestle with that, and I think the viewer does too,” Jenkins says.

Daily Signal News

China is vying to become the world's No. 1 superpower, a distinction long held by the U.S. The communist country "is threatening American innovation and national security by exploiting weaknesses in U.S. patent protection, and Big Tech is letting them get away with it," according to a synopsis for a new documentary film, "Innovation Race," which opens in theaters Wednesday.Retired Air Force Brig. Gen. Robert Spalding, author of "Stealth War: How China Took Over While America's Elites Slept," says that "the movie itself really talks about the importance of the patent system to innovation in the United States, how that's kept our country secure throughout the almost 240-plus years of existence, and how that security was negated by the America Invents Act."And how in this competition that we face today, with China in particular, that it's creating a challenge for America in terms of innovation and keeping its rightful place at the top of science, technology, and research and development," Spalding says. The America Invents Act was passed and signed into law in 2011 by then-President Barack Obama, who at the time said the "much-needed reform will speed up the patent process so that innovators and entrepreneurs can turn a new invention into a business as quickly as possible."Spalding also discusses what he found to be the most surprising takeaway from the "Innovation Race" documentary."Well, I in particular like the stories of the inventors. And I think understanding the personal calculations that they went through in terms of trying to protect their intellectual property and then realizing that they're not able to, to me was ... I think, the most important part of the film," he says.Spalding added:One of the things about America is, innovation relies on individual initiative, and if you're not certain about the ability to protect your intellectual property, then you're going to be less likely to go out there and take all the financial risks and personal risks that are associated with being an entrepreneur and or inventor.And so, hearing those stories, understanding the implications across our economy as you multiply those by 330 million, really just gives you a sense of the gravity of the challenge that this American Invents Act created for our country.Spalding joins "The Daily Signal Podcast" to discuss the "Innovation Race" movie, what's at stake for U.S. national security, and the so-called Made in China 2025 plan. ("'Made in China 2025' is an initiative to comprehensively upgrade Chinese industry," Scott Kennedy, senior adviser and trustee chair in Chinese business and economics at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, explains.)

As results from Election Day continue to trickle in, it's still not clear whether Republicans or Democrats will control the next House and Senate, and by how much. However, it's clear that Republicans suffered both major wins and major losses in midterm elections across the nation."Some of the big wins we saw in Florida. [Gov. Ron] DeSantis got about 19 [percentage points] over [Democrat Charlie] Crist, which is a massive margin. This is a state that Donald Trump carried in 2020 by 3 points," says Noah Weinrich, communications director for Heritage Action for America, the grassroots arm of The Heritage Foundation. (The Daily Signal is Heritage's multimedia news organization.)"Historically before that, it's been seen as a swing state," Weinrich says of Florida. "It's the bellwether."On the flip side, however, Republicans suffered a loss in Pennsylvania's Senate race, where Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, a Democrat, defeated Dr. Mehmet Oz, a Republican. "So some of the losses we saw ... were in really tight races like Pennsylvania. Dr. Oz lost against John Fetterman. I haven't checked the final margin, but it was only by, I believe, 2 points or something like that," Weinrich says."Now, that was a state that President Trump won very narrowly in 2016 [and] lost very narrowly in 2020," he says.Weinrich joins this episode of "The Daily Signal Podcast" to discuss the wins and losses of Election Day, the races still up in the air as of the podcast's recording, and key issues that drove voters to the polls.

Antoni, a research fellow in regional economics in the Center for Data Analysis at The Heritage Foundation.

Antoni offered his predictions for future GDP reports."As a former bartender, I'll use a bit of an alcohol analogy here. This last report—the third-quarter report, that is—I think was last call. So, if you want to judge the party based on alcohol consumption, things are looking great. That's a high number, " he says. "But viewed in context, the party's over.

When does a male quit being a boy and enter manhood? The answer has little to do with his age, Ryan Michler says. Michler, the host of the “Order of Man” podcast and author of the new book “The Masculinity Manifesto: How a Man Establishes Influence, Credibility, and Authority,” has a simple definition for when a boy becomes a man. “A boy consumes more than he produces, and a man produces more than he consumes,” he says. “When you are producing more than you consume—meaning, you're able to give value to the people and others around you—you are acting like a man. That's manly behavior,” the author says, adding, “We would call that individual a man.” Michler joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to discuss his new book and how males can become men of influence as fathers, husbands, and leaders within their workplace and community.

The 20th Congress of the Chinese Communist Party wrapped up its weeklong, twice-a-decade meeting over the weekend with Chinese President Xi Jinping securing his third five-year term."The third term was not a surprise at all [but] the extent to which he consolidated his power was," Michael Cunningham, a research fellow at The Heritage Foundation, says of Xi's grip on the Chinese Communist Party. (The Daily Signal is Heritage's multimedia news organization.)Xi "managed to get to force people to retire prematurely who were not his proteges and to replace them with proteges, his own handpicked people," Cunningham says. "So now he controls essentially the entire Politburo Standing Committee. There are very few checks on his power now."Rep. Michael Waltz, R-Fla., warned on "Fox News Sunday" that Xi "has become the most powerful Chinese dictator since Mao.""The amount of power consolidation that [Xi] accomplished this time, it really shows that ... there are very few checks to his power now," Cunningham says, adding:It's hard to say for sure what extent that power will be until we see it in action, but just based on the past 10 years, we've seen that even without controlling the entire leadership lineup as he does now, he managed to push through his preferred policies.Cunningham joins "The Daily Signal Podcast" to discuss what the U.S. should expect during Xi's third term, how Taiwan will be affected, and the state of U.S.-China relations.Video of former Chinese President Hu Jintao: https://twitter.com/dansoncj/status/1583663702896967680?s=20&t=cl9y4jE8S3VU50EddnKoTg] Hosted on Acast.

The U.S. military not only is weak overall but “at growing risk of not being able to meet the demands of defending America's vital national interests,” according to a new report from The Heritage Foundation. On Tuesday, Heritage released its 2023 Index of U.S. Military Strength, a document of nearly 600 pages that assesses the strength of America's armed forces. “In our index, we score or measure the status of American military power in the year that's just passed. Over years, you can start to see trends and you can see the implications for the United States, and our foreign policy, and economic health, and those sorts of things,” says Dakota Wood, a senior research fellow in The Heritage Foundation's Center for National Defense. (The Daily Signal is Heritage's multimedia news organization.) “I think it's the easiest way to think about it, is how did the Army do? The Navy, the Air Force, and [other] military services? And what was the nature of the world?” Wood, who served for over two decades as a Marine, says. Wood joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to break down the findings of the Index of U.S. Military Strength, how America's military compares to that of China, and what he hopes Americans will take away from the report.

Chinese President Xi Jinping renewed his calls for the "reunification" of China and Taiwan on Sunday during the opening session of the 20th National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party. "We will continue to strive for peaceful reunification with the greatest sincerity and the utmost effort, but we will never promise to renounce the use of force, and we reserve the option of taking all measures necessary," Xi said. China is "determined to pursue reunification on a much faster timeline," U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Monday."So, now it's sort of pretty clear that the Chinese are thinking seriously of making a move. So, why aren't we acting like it?" says Elbridge Colby, a former deputy assistant secretary of defense for strategy and force development in the Defense Department. "Why aren't we acting on a national mobilization effort precisely to avoid a war? Because once we get into a war, it's definitely going to be far more expensive and costly in terms of lives and resources. And it may be too late if we wait that long," Colby says.Colby joins "The Daily Signal Podcast" to discuss Xi's comments, his recent article in Time magazine about why the U.S. should defend Taiwan, and what message could be sent if the U.S. is not able to successfully deter China from invading Taiwan.

The end of October is nearing, which means Halloween is just around the corner for many American kids. The holiday, known for trick or treating and consuming copious amounts of candy, is a bit spookier than normal this year: Parents now have to worry about the possibility of so-called rainbow fentanyl ending up in their kids' candy bags.“Because this has been a relatively new phenomenon regarding the rainbow fentanyl and as Halloween is so close, parents need to be particularly concerned about what their children are ingesting for Halloween, because it has been found in Nerds candy packaging as well as Skittles,” says Lora Ries, director of The Heritage Foundation's Border Security and Immigration Center. (The Daily Signal is Heritage's multimedia news organization.)Fentanyl, a highly lethal synthetic opioid, has plagued communities throughout the United States. Just recently, roughly 300,000 “rainbow fentanyl” pills and more than 20 pounds of powdered fentanyl were found in the Bronx, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration reported. “[Parents] need to talk to their kids, as best they can age appropriately, to look out for rainbow-colored candy and two, parents themselves should be checking packaging,” Ries advises. Ries joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to talk about rainbow fentanyl, the ongoing crisis at the southern border, and what much of the media is missing. Hosted on Acast.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Thursday that the consumer price index rose 0.4% in September, showing that inflation remained at a near four-decade high of 8.2%. "Today's report shows some progress in the fight against higher prices, even as we have more work to do. Inflation over the last three months has averaged 2%, at an annualized rate," President Joe Biden said in a statement. EJ Antoni, a research fellow for regional economics in the Center for Data Analysis at The Heritage Foundation, couldn't disagree more. "This is just the latest example of how Americans are being absolutely crushed right now by these higher prices. And it's not yachts and caviar that are driving these increases. It's necessities. It's the basic staples," Antoni says. "It's eggs, bread, milk. We're not talking about filet mignon here. We're talking about ground beef. And sadly, Americans are really paying the price for what has been going on the last two years in terms of the government just spending, borrowing, and printing trillions and trillions of dollars," says Antoni.Antoni joins "The Daily Signal Podcast" to take a deeper dive into what the consumer price index means, how it compares to the producer price index, and even offer some spending advice ahead of the holiday season.
