Leonard Lopate at Large on WBAI Radio in New York

According to Ira Shapiro, the Founding Fathers gave the US Senate many functions, but one fundamental responsibility was to provide the check against a dangerous president who threatened our democracy. Two hundred and thirty years later, when Donald Trump, a potential authoritarian, finally reached the White House, the Senate should have served as both America's first and last lines of defense. Ira Shapiro the author of The Betrayal: How Mitch McConnell and the Senate Republicans Abandoned America, forty-five-year Washington career has focused on American politics and international trade. Shapiro has served twelve years in senior staff positions in the U.S. Senate. Join us when Ira Shapiro examines the pivotal challenges the Senate underwent during the Trump administration, arguing that the body's failure to provide leadership represented the most catastrophic failure of government in American history. As well as the Senate's performance during President Biden's first year in office, the 2022 Senate elections and beyond, on this installment of Leonard Lopate at Large.

Phil warns against the counterfeit miracles that work to conceal evil so that mankind may be deceived and confuse the good for evil and the evil for good.

Charlie welcome Bernie Sanders' fmr. Press Secretary, Briahna Joy Gray, for a debate night, sponsored by Turning Point USA. Briahna and Charlie debate whether or not America is a systemically racist country. In what begins as a fairly heated debate, Charlie and Briahna discuss red-lining, prison populations, disparities vs. discriminations, and does America have a two-tiered justice system. How much are the wealth disparities between white and black communities owed to racism or to other issues like two parent households and other variables? What about black-only graduations or black-only dorms? What is the proper way to view the Founding Fathers? Should they be viewed by their flaws? Or should they be viewed by their progress made against sins such as slavery? In a sometimes heated but always substantive discussion between two diametrically opposed debaters, this is a must listen to discussion that strikes at the very heart of some of America's most painful and important issues.   Support the show: http://www.charliekirk.com/support See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Today's show rundown: Chuck is feeling a little under the weather today, but Mark is going to soldier on. Mark gets into the Roe v. Wade leak right away. He is of the mindset that it is up to the states to decide whether they have abortion or not. Letting the states decide what's best for their people and population. Mark talks about how the left is going to use this to hide all things like the border, inflation, the economy. This is the opportunity for the Democrats to make gains that we did not count on. For the Republicans, the timing is bad, so as conservatives we need to keep the focus on the real issues, not Roe v. Wade. We meet Elijah, who tells us a little about where he came from and what he does. More importantly he tells us why he wants to go into politics now, even though he already has a successful business. He got really political involved in 2020, when the income tax was supposed to get raised on small business owners. This money was of course supposed to go to the schools, but as he looked deeper, he found this was NOT the case. The Founding Fathers never intended for politics to be a career choice. It was intended to be a public service, a sacrifice. Elija does not want to be a career politician, he believes in term limits. He has committed for 8 years, and then wants to be out. This is a time in our Nations history where Elijah believes his skill set will contribute to the solution. Will the Left make the next election about abortion, will they play on that "Republicans want to take away your rights". Elijah Norton started a business at 21 years old with only $1,000, ten years later that same business employs over 100 people and generates more than $100MM in annual revenue. Being a business leader in the greater Phoenix area has given Elijah a unique perspective on how bad federal policy, overreaching tax policy, and regulations directly affect the economy and everyday lives of Valley citizens. Elijah plans to fight to extend the job-creating Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), conservative health insurance reform, and plans on supporting tough policy against the rising threat of China. Elijah is running for Congress because the people of the Northeast Valley deserve ethical and true Conservative leadership restored in Washington. https://nortonforarizona.com/ https://www.facebook.com/NortonforAZ https://twitter.com/NortonforAZ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCnLP7k7rGpONDsDzMnPRcug

Joy Reid leads this edition of The ReidOut sounding the alarm about the Supreme Court being poised to overturn Roe v. Wade according to a leaked draft opinion published by Politico. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito authored the draft of this ruling, which rests on the argument that, "The Constitution makes no reference to abortion, and no such right is implicitly protected" -- taking us back to the time of the Founding Fathers, when women were considered barely more than the property of their fathers and husbands. Rep. Barbara Lee, Alexis McGill Johnson, President and CEO of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, and more expert guests join Joy on what is next in the fight to preserve abortion access. We also take you live to Vice President Kamala Harris giving a speech at a gala hosted by the pro-choice group Emily's List, where she calls on abortion rights supporters to join this battle.

Historian George Nash returns to the show to discuss the life and legacy of Herbert Hoover.   Few American presidents are as decried by voices on both the Left and Right as Herbert Hoover.  His name has become synonymous with economic suffering and callous Federal response.  But Dr. Nash contends that the popular narrative linking Hoover to the catastrophes of the Great Depression do a great injustice to the actual historical account and reduce one of America's most remarkable men to that of a callous buffoon.  Hoover, in Dr. Nash's telling, was responsible for saving the lives of more people than anyone else who ever lived.  And that's just the start of it.  He accomplished so much in his long life of public and private service that, even if he had never been president, he would be well worth studying today.  A greater appreciation for the complexities of the man and the times in which he lived provides the student of conservatism a greater appreciation for the challenges we face today.   About George Nash George H. Nash is the epitome of a gentleman and a scholar.  A graduate from Amherst College who received his Ph.D. in History from Harvard University, Dr. Nash is an authority on the histories of American conservatism and the life of President Herbert Hoover.  Dr. Nash is an independent scholar, historian, and lecturer.  He speaks and writes frequently about the history and present direction of American conservatism, the life of Herbert Hoover, the legacy of Ronald Reagan, the education of the Founding Fathers, and other subjects.  His writings have appeared in the American Spectator, Claremont Review of Books, Intercollegiate Review, Modern Age, National Review, New York Times Book Review, Policy Review, University Bookman, Wall Street Journal, and many other publications.  He has lectured at the Library of Congress; the National Archives; the Herbert Hoover, John F. Kennedy, and Lyndon Johnson presidential libraries; the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum; the Hoover Institution; the Heritage Foundation; the McConnell Center; and at various universities and conferences in the United States and Europe.  Several of his lectures have been featured on C-SPAN.  He has also been interviewed by C-SPAN, National Public Radio, numerous radio stations, and the print media. Dr. Nash lives in Massachusetts.

The bickering over Elon Musk's acquisition of Twitter brings into focus America's war between the sexes — that's at the crux of Jason's daily fire-starter. Jason argues that the feminization of American culture is about women prioritizing safety above freedom. America's Founding Fathers emphasized freedom over safety. As women have grown in power, they have forced men to create safe spaces within public discourse (Twitter) and all aspects of American culture, including football. "Fearless" contributors Shemeka Michelle and T.J. Moe respond to Jason's provocative points that Musk threatens the matriarchy, only cowardly men reject the responsibility of leadership, and that the feminization of American society will be this country's downfall.

Nelson Mandala once said, There can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way in which it treats its children. Nelson Mandela If you take some time to examine what's going on in the public school system, and what it's doing to our children, you'd think America's soul had been sold to someone hellbent on destroying American values and virtues. Most of us have heard small soundbites or seen headlines warning parents of what's going on in schools, but when you dig a little deeper, what you find is alarming and horrifying. It's as if there's a small, anti-American contingent that has control over our school systems. They understand that the way to remake America into something it wasn't intended to be is to change the minds of today's children, who will be voting and leading adults within the next two to three decades. Our Founding Fathers understood that well-educated citizens would protect the ideals and integrity of the United States, and that an ignorant or uneducated population would lead to America's demise. They knew that our educational systems would either build or break our nation.  The Founding Fathers maintained that the success of the fragile American democracy would depend on the competency of its citizens. They believed strongly that preserving democracy would require an educated population that could understand political and social issues and would participate in civic life, vote wisely, protect their rights and freedoms, and resist tyrants and demagogues. Character and virtue were also considered essential to good citizenship, and education was seen as a means to provide moral instruction and build character.Center on Education Policy As extreme left-wing ideologies continue to entrench themselves in the public school system, prioritizing fundamental education, has taken a backseat to creating champions of those ideologies. The more I've delved into what's happening, the more concerned I've become as I consider a future where young adults were never taught basic educational skills, are unable to think critically, and fear voices that contradict the indoctrination they learned from their teachers as they grew up. In this brief essay, I can only touch on a few points every parent should consider as they send their kids off to school. At the end, I recommend a best-selling book that'll take you much deeper into how prevalent this issue is, and how deep-seated it is in the school system across the country. Equality of Outcome, Not Educational Excellence Our grandson learned to ski this past winter. Having skied since I was three years old, I understood the importance of learning how to ski the right way, rather than simply sending him down the hill to figure it out on his own, and end up developing bad habits along the way. For his first day on the slopes, we got him a lesson. For his second day, he started with a lesson and then we skied with him the rest of the day, reinforcing the lessons he learned. A couple of weeks later, we got him another lesson. Could he have gotten by without the lessons? Sure. He could have made it down the slopes without them, but just getting down the slopes isn't at all the same as learning to carve, pop, ski backwards, spin, or handle variations in terrain that go from soft snow to ice to unexpected grooves and bumps. I want him to become an excellent skier because it'll give him the freedom to ski wherever he wants, from hills here in the midwest to slopes in the rocky mountains. The better his skills, the more fun he'll have with the sport. Reading, writing, and math are a lot like that. Achieving a high standard in these fundamentals opens other opportunities to learn, think, and communicate. Unfortunately, over the past two decades, schools have prioritized getting kids graduated over holding them accountable to educational standards. In his best-selling book, Race to the Bottom,

In America, individual rights come from God, and government is put in place only to secure and protect those rights, not grant them. But far too many times today's government stretches its boundaries and exerts its influences in ways that aren't constitutional, that aren't in line with Founding Father intents and that aren't even particularly moral in nature. If more Americans focused on the war over "God-given rights" instead of running from battle to battle, believing that the next election will bring liberty, or the incoming politician will bring back freedoms, then maybe America wouldn't be facing such an assault on individualism right now. Pure and simple: leftists want globalism and collectivism, and ultimately, the total annihilation of God from the public stage. Leftists ultimately want the worship of the people. So the bigger war is not about elections and Republicans winning over Democrats; it's about the ability of the American people to insist on God-given over government-granted. Pete Peterson with Pepperdine University discusses.

Jessica Serfilippi started her groundbreaking and myth-busting research on Alexander Hamilton the way she thinks any historian should — with an open mind, she says.She was “not looking one way or the other to find something, just seeing where the primary sources led me,” Serfilippi says. “And I cannot ignore where they were leading me.”The primary sources — including letters and cash books in Hamilton's own hand — led her to this conclusion: “When those sources are fully considered, a rarely acknowledged truth becomes inescapbly apparent: not only did Alexander Hamilton enslave people, but his involvement in the institution of slavery was essential to his identity, both personally and professionally.“The denial and obscuration of these facts in nearly every major biography written about him over the past two centuries has erased the people he enslaved from history. It has also created and perpetuated a false and incomplete picture of Hamilton as a man and Founding Father.”Serfilippi, who works as a historical interpreter at the state-run Schuyler Mansion in Albany, had those words published on the state's website as part of her carefully researched 28-page paper, in the fall of 2020.A firestorm followed.Read the full article at https://altamontenterprise.com/04202022/serfilippi-upended-hero-hamilton-narrative-so-those-he-enslaved-could-take-their-place See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
