This is Garrison Hardie with your CrossPolitic Daily News Brief for Tuesday, May 23rd, 2023. Concordis Education Partners: Classical Christian education has reminded us to aim education at truth, but the trivium has been used as a formula rather than a way of training students in discernment. To teach well, you must coach. Concordis Foundation is offering their third annual BOOT CAMP – a faculty summit – July 11-13th in Moscow, Idaho. This is a three-day intensive teaching training where you learn to coach students, using the trivium, so that you can meet students at all learning levels.

The news was first reported by the “Pro-Woman, Pro-Child Safeguarding, Anti-Bullsh*t,” media outlet Reduxx. According to the outlet, Twitter contacted the two women — Jasmine Sussex and Leah Whiston — on May 16, notifying them that they had violated Australian law in several of their tweets. The platform told the two that a “government entity or law enforcement agency” had informed them of their alleged crime, and that the platform had been forced to hide the content from Australian users. The posts in question had been critical of Jennifer Buckley, a female-identified male. Buckley had previously announced online that, after two years of transitioning, he had induced lactation and had begun breastfeeding his newborn son, who his wife had given birth to. Sussex was heavily critical of this, telling the U.K.’s Daily Mail that “men shouldn’t breastfeed because breastfeeding [is] for the baby,” and that “there is no evidence that any male-induced milk is equivalent to mother’s milk.” “We have no idea if the substance is even milk. It’s absolutely a human experiment on babies,” she told the outlet. As a volunteer breastfeeding counselor, Sussex was reportedly fired from her job in 2021 for failing to comply with the adoption of “gender neutral” language in breastfeeding care — a claim which the ABA denied to the Daily Mail. A year after, she was removed from the Australian Breastfeeding Association (ABA), Reduxx reported. “I was sacked for. … ‘Engaging in Sectarian Controversy’ in breach of the ABA constitution,” she told Reduxx. “In other words, continuing to talk about the dangers of gender identity ideology for mothers and babies, including how men were forcing their way into the breastfeeding relationship by attempting to induce lactation.” Whiston, meanwhile, is the representative for the Standing for Women Queensland (SFWQ) page. She had posted a Twitter thread on the page, revealing that an LGBT lobby group had allegedly given the ABA $20,000 for them to create an educational booklet about “chest feeding.” https://www.dailysignal.com/2023/05/22/exclusive-leaked-policy-exposes-fox-news-stances-on-woke-ideology/?fbclid=IwAR36KJiUko85jY6nRrQSX4DH2XOZAwUdyaTl-iEhQIfZe9w-ZPnsTY3cAnA Leaked Policy Exposes Fox News Stances on Woke Ideology Fox News employees are allowed to use bathrooms that align with their gender identity, rather than their biological sex, and permitted to dress in alignment with their preferred gender. They must also be addressed by their preferred name and pronouns in the workplace. These are just a few of the policies outlined in the company handbook, dated January 2021, a copy of which was shared with The Daily Signal. Fox also offers to help employees come up with a “Workplace Transition Plan” to ease their gender transition at work. The revelations comes amid conservative consternation at Fox Digital’s use of activist language like “gender affirming care” in stories on its website, as well as the site’s consistent use of female pronouns for biological males like TikTok celebrity Dylan Mulvaney and swimmer Lia Thomas (formerly known as Will Thomas). Fox also drew strong backlash for a June 2022 on-air segment praising a child’s gender transition as an “inspiration to others.” That segment briefly depicted California state Sen. Scott Weiner, a far-left Democrat who led the move to soften sex offender registry requirements for sodomy with minors, and highlighted the activist claim that a child might commit suicide if he or she is not permitted to transition. Carlson’s show was canceled April 24, days after he delivered a viral speech at The Heritage Foundation’s 50th anniversary gala. Fox News Media has not given a reason, simply stating that the two parties “agreed to part ways.” A source who still works at Fox News told The Daily Signal that after Carlson’s show was canceled in April, producers for the new 8 p.m. “Fox News Tonight” program were told not to bash Mulvaney. That directive came from high-level executives, the source said. Fox News did not respond to The Daily Signal’s multiple requests for comment. Under the category “Gender Transition,” Fox’s employee handbook promises that the company is dedicated to “expanding and strengthening” efforts to “sustain a more inclusive work environment.” The Fox employee handbook is posted on Workday, where employees can see company guidelines or policies, a former employee told The Daily Signal. “Employees who are transitioning their gender have the right to be open about their transition if they so choose, and to work in an environment free of harassment, discrimination, or retaliation, and without fear of consequences or transphobia for living openly,” the policy says. Citing the Human Rights Campaign, one of the most prominent LGBTQ organization in the country, the Fox handbook defines a slew of LGBTQ terms, including cisgender, gender expression, gender-fluid, gender identity, gender non-conforming, gender transition, LGBTQ, non-binary, and transgender. For the past several years, Fox received a perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index, “the nation’s foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ+ workplace equality.” A former Fox News employee told The Daily Signal that the company frequently mentions this perfect score in employee training materials. “Fox News devotes hours of programming to attacking ‘woke companies,’ but ironically Fox is as woke as the rest of them,” another former Fox News employee told The Daily Signal, emphasizing that Fox viewers would be “astonished to find out what the company is like.” Fox’s policies appear to be aligned with the legal requirements in New York City, where the company is headquartered, as well as California, where a large number of its employees work. The handbook explicitly states that any employee “may access the restroom corresponding to their gender identity.” “If a transitioning employee expresses a desire for increased privacy they will be provided access to a single occupancy restroom where available,” the handbook says. “However, no employee shall be required to use a single occupancy restroom if they do not wish to do so.” When trans-identifying TikTok star Mulvaney was first gaining prominence last year, producers for “Tucker Carlson Tonight” had to fight to be able to refer to Mulvaney with male pronouns in the show’s chyrons, the former “Tucker Carlson Tonight” producer told The Daily Signal. Carlson’s team also fought to be able to host The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh on trans issues, the producer said, but the team was repeatedly met with resistance from Fox on this due to Walsh’s frank condemnation of transgender ideology. This may have also been due in part to Fox’s view of The Daily Wire as a competitor, the former producer suggested. https://www.based-politics.com/2023/05/22/this-public-college-is-giving-out-paid-internships-that-openly-exclude-white-people/ This public college is giving out paid internships that openly exclude white people Martin Luther King Jr. famously dreamed of a day when Americans would be judged not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. Well, keep dreaming, MLK, because segregation and open race discrimination are making a comeback—this time, in progressive bastions like our higher education system and in the name of “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.” The University of Minnesota just got hit with a federal civil rights complaint because it’s openly conditioning a paid internship program on the basis of race. Their “Multicultural Summer Research Opportunities Program” is “an intensive 10 week summer program in which undergraduate students of color work full-time with a faculty mentor on a research project.” It aims to help in “preparing students for graduate school and developing research skills,” and pays students a $6,000 stipend. A condition of the program is that it is only open to students who “identify” as “a student of color or Native American.” This program’s legality is being challenged by the Legal Insurrection Foundation’s Equal Protection Project (EPP), which “seeks to ensure equal protection under the law and non-discrimination by the government” and “opposes racial discrimination in any form.” They just filed a complaint with the Office of Civil Rights of the U.S. Department of Education arguing that this internship program violates the Civil Rights Act and the Equal Protection clause of the Constitution. “The U. Minnesota segregated summer program is inexcusable, and it’s shocking that a major university would so openly make educational opportunities open only to students of a certain skin color,” EPP President Bill told Fox News Digital. “There is no good form of racial discrimination. Depriving white students of educational opportunities does not promote racial or any other form of justice.” https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2023/05/21/census-new-york-city-loses-nearly-half-a-million-residents-in-two-years/ New York City Loses Nearly Half a Million Residents in Two Years New York City has lost nearly half a million residents over the course of just two years, newly released United States Census Bureau data reveals. The Census Bureau data, which shows population estimates for mid-2022, finds that fewer than 8.4 million residents remain living in New York City — still making the Big Apple the nation’s most populous city by several million. In April 2020, the very start of the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, more than 8.8 million residents lived in New York City. This figure indicates a population loss of more than five percent from April 2020 to July 2022 with almost half a million residents leaving the city. Americans moving out of deep blue cities is widespread, the Census Bureau data shows. The second largest city, Los Angeles, California, and the third largest city, Chicago, Illinois, also lost residents over the course of two years. In Los Angeles, for instance, about 3.8 million residents remain in the city as of July 2022 compared to about 3.9 million residents in April 2020, a loss of about 100,000 residents. Similarly, Chicago had about 2.67 million residents as of July 2022 but in April 2020, the city had about three percent more residents. Over the two years, about 85,000 residents left Chicago. And now for the rundown… https://andmagazine.substack.com/p/china-is-building-killer-robots-using Many of us have seen The Terminator, a 1984 film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. It depicts an almost unstoppable robot sent back in time from 2029 to 1984. Its mission was to kill a woman whose unborn son will save humanity from Skynet, a 2029 artificial intelligence system that had become self-aware and then decided to destroy all of mankind because humans were interfering in their plans and programs. The Chinese Communist Party, the CCP, is now creating their version of the Terminator -- an army of battlefield killer robots that will not be managed by humans in any way and, instead, will be controlled by an artificial intelligence (AI) system. The Chinese plan for building such lethal autonomous robots was revealed by Zeng Yi, an executive in a Chinese government-owned company named Norinco. He said, “In future battlegrounds, there will be no people fighting,” adding that autonomous AI platforms are “inevitable.” https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/washington-secrets/explosion-of-ap-climate-change-stories-following-8m-enviro-grant In the year following a grant of more than $8 million to the Associated Press from key climate change advocates, the news service has poured out at least 64 stories warning of environmental calamity, according to a new media study.Media Research Center Business charted the stories and language used following the multimillion-dollar grant and found that AP also used over 500 environmental extremism buzzwords in the stories. The media giant, which feeds news outlets worldwide, received grants totaling $8 million from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Quadrivium, the Rockefeller Foundation, and the Walton Family Foundation in February 2022. AP said it would hire 20 new environmental writers with the money to create a climate swat team to “enhance the global understanding of climate change and its impact across the world.” https://www.outkick.com/trans-high-school-track-runner-robs-female-athlete-of-state-championship-bid/ Another day, another biological male taking opportunities from deserving females.Athena Ryan took second place Saturday in the high school women’s 1600 meter race at the North Coast Meet of Champions in California. The top three athletes advance to the CIF State Track & Field Championships next week. So the fourth-place finisher, Adeline Johnson, missed her chance to compete in State by just one spot. A spot taken by a boy. Ryan, a junior at Sonoma Academy, competed on the men’s team in 2021. But he’s been running in women’s events for the past two seasons. In Saturday’s meet, he clocked a season-record 4:55:91 in the 1600m finals. He would have finished last in the male category. The slowest male time in the preliminaries was 4:46:54. The slowest male time in the finals was 4:35:12. A group of advocates held a banner at the event that simply read, “Protect Female Sports.” They were eventually asked to leave and then escorted off the premises. But not before they had an interesting exchange with an angry passerby. How about we end with some cool news… https://www.dailyfetched.com/soldier-who-lost-both-legs-in-afghanistan-does-the-unimaginable-and-climbs-everest-anything-is-possible/ British army soldier Gurkha veteran Hari Budha Magar, who lost both his legs while serving in Afghanistan, has successfully climbed to the top of the world’s tallest mountain, Mount Everest. Magar, a father of three, served as a corporal in the Gurkha regiment in the British Army. After Magar lost his legs to an improvised explosive device in 2010, he thought his life was “completely finished.” The veteran, who now lives in Canterbury, England, battled depression and alcoholism following the explosion. But Magar persevered. The veteran helped strike down a ban on both double amputees and blind people climbing Everest, ensuring he would have a chance at overcoming both nature and his injuries. According to the BBC, Magar hoped to “inspire others” and “change perceptions on disability” and set off with a team of Nepalese climbers to combat Everest. He” set off on May 6 with a team of Nepalese climbers led by Krish Thapa, a fellow Gurkha veteran and British special forces mountain troop leader. Magar announced he “stood victorious” atop Everest around 3 p.m. on May 19, noting, “Disability is no barrier to reaching the 8,849-metre peak.”

The Rich Zeoli Show- Full Episode (05/19/2023): 3:05pm- On Thursday, several Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) whistleblowers testified before a House Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government. The hearing addressed alleged abuses of power by leadership within the FBI. 3:15pm- In his latest editorial at National Review, Andrew C. McCarthy writes: “Even before the Capitol riot of January 6, 2021, congressional Democrats had formulated a plan to project the illusion that the most perilous threat to American national security—not just in our time but in our history—was domestic terrorism fueled by white supremacists… House Democrats were proposing their so-called ‘Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act'… The real purpose of this legislation is twofold: (1) stigmatize as terrorism policies that progressives oppose; (2) establish in law requirements that induce the FBI and other federal agencies to inflate the number of domestic-terrorism investigations.” You can read McCarthy's full editorial: https://www.nationalreview.com/2023/05/democrats-cook-the-fbis-books-on-domestic-terrorism/ 3:30pm- Rich has to remember to grab his trunk meat…what??? 3:40pm- Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) whistleblower Steve Friend alleged that Director Christopher Wray is content with the way his bureau has become overtly politicized. 4:05pm- Although numerous whistleblowers reported abuse of power by the federal government at a House Select Committee hearing on Thursday, Newsbusters notes that the country's major nightly news broadcasts—ABC World News Tonight, NBC Nightly News, and CBS Evening News—did not report on the hearing at all. 4:20pm- While speaking with former Deputy Assistant Attorney General Harry Litman, MSNBC host Nicole Wallace exclaimed that the FBI whistleblowers—who testified before Congress about FBI abuses of power—were guilty of insubordination. 4:30pm- Dr. Victoria Coates—former Deputy National Security Advisor & Senior Research Fellow at The Heritage Foundation—joins The Rich Zeoli Show to talk about the G7 Summit taking place in Japan.

One of the more contentious points currently being debated in foreign policy today is the relationship of the United States to the conflict in between Russia and Ukraine. Many see parallels between the current situation between Russia and Ukraine and that between China and Taiwan, as we talked about in the series. Some say that the United States should be more active in the war in Ukraine, others less. What you're about to hear are remarks from Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri, entitled China and Ukraine: A time for truth, presented here at the Heritage Foundation in February of 2023. In this talk, he argues for a foreign policy that focuses more on Taiwan, and less on Ukraine. ---The Daily Signal Podcast: https://www.dailysignal.com/podcasts/More China Research from the Heritage Foundation: www.heritage.org/chinaWinning the New Cold War: A Plan for Countering China: https://www.heritage.org/asia/report/winning-the-new-cold-war-plan-countering-chinaThe Kevin Roberts Show: https://www.heritage.org/the-kevin-roberts-show Hosted on Acast.

It's a tale as old as time… where will our next trillion come from to feed our hungry coffers? We jest, but only a little: Negotiations on raising the debt limit are ongoing, marking, ahem, dozens of times this has happened under both Democrats and Republicans. Neither party has been able to summon the wherewithal to sacrifice political clout for the good of the long-term economy. Take healthcare spending: Democrats promote top-down, regulatory spending, while Republicans support consumer-based choice and competition. Fine – but costs haven't been fixed, efficiencies have not been produced, and Medicare has an $80 trillion shortfall over 30 years. Who do we think is going to bail us out? China and Japan hold a measly $2 trillion of our debt and they are selling it; the Fed holds just $5 trillion and they're trying to downshift. Are we really going to rely on American banks and savers and mutual funds to lend Washington $100 trillion over the next 30 years at low interest rates? It is not even a possible scenario. Our guest predicts that we are on a path that ends in a 15% value-added tax and a payroll tax rising close to 22% – yes, exactly like Europe.

The Democrat Part is a deadbeat party led by the biggest deadbeat in history! Author Richard Lyons talks to Shaun about the DNA of democracy and if America is losing it. PLUS, on the eve before Title 42 expires, Simon Hankinson from The Heritage Foundation says the doors are wide open and what is in store for us.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
An estimated 13,000 illegal aliens are expected to cross America's southern border every day beginning Thursday. That's more than double the daily average in March. This expected spike in the number of migrants crossing the border illegally is the direct result of the end of Title 42, a public health measure set in place under the Trump administration during the COVID-19 pandemic. Title 42 has allowed Border Patrol to quickly expel some illegal aliens from the country. Without the measure, Border Patrol has little power under the policies of the Biden administration to turn illegal aliens away. With illegal alien encounters expected to rise with the end of Title 42, the Biden administration has announced a new asylum rule effective once Title 42 expires. The new rule requires illegal aliens to first seek asylum in another country they travel through and be denied before they seek asylum in the U.S. “If individuals do not access their lawful pathways, the pathways that we have made available to them, they will face a rebuttable presumption, but a presumption of ineligibility,” DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said of the new rule during a press conference Wednesday. Mayorkas' reference to “lawful pathways” includes use of the CBP One mobile app, which allows illegal aliens to schedule an appointment at a port of entry to seek asylum. But Biden's new rule is already drawing criticism. “The asylum rule simply directs everyone towards using the made-up, illegal mass parole programs that the Biden Administration erroneously labels 'lawful pathways' by using the CBP One mobile app to get a parole appointment at an interior airport,” Simon Hankinson, a senior research fellow in The Heritage Foundation's Border Security and Immigration Center, told The Daily Signal. (The Daily Signal is the news outlet of The Daily Signal.) “In the long run,” Hankinson continued, “this won't discourage anyone. Those who can use the parole app process will, those who can't will just come anyway and cross illegally. The best we can hope for is that the new asylum rule reduces flows about as much as Title 42 did, and things remain status quo – a poorly managed disaster.” Lora Ries, director of the Border Security and Immigration Center at The Heritage Foundation, joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to explain what the end of Title 42 means for the security of America's border, and why Biden's new asylum rule won't solve the current crisis.

Welcome to a bonus episode of Heritage Explains! We are looking forward to bringing you a new series starting on June 7, but in the next few weeks, we want to keep delivering you the best content to keep you informed about the important issues facing our country. In keeping with the series we just finished, six episodes on the threat of the Chinese Communist party, we are bringing you some bonus episodes, focusing on parts of the China story that we may have only covered tangentially or what to spend more time on. First up, an episode on the quiet killer that has taken the lives of thousands of Americans per year for the last several years: fentanyl. Since 2014, we've seen continuous, disturbing growth in the number of deaths due to overdose from synthetic opioids, most of them fentanyl. For this bonus episode, we're pulling in a conversation from the Daily Signal Podcast which originally aired in January of this year, between our reporter Samantha Aescheris and Derek Maltz, a veteran of the Drug Enforcement Administration and expert on fentanyl. ---The Daily Signal Podcast: https://www.dailysignal.com/podcasts/More China Research from the Heritage Foundation: www.heritage.org/chinaWinning the New Cold War: A Plan for Countering China: https://www.heritage.org/asia/report/winning-the-new-cold-war-plan-countering-chinaThe Kevin Roberts Show: https://www.heritage.org/the-kevin-roberts-show Hosted on Acast.

Hans von Spakovsky, Senior Legal Fellow at the Heritage Foundation, joins Marc to discuss the Supreme Courts' "so-called" ethical violation
In March 2022, the Securities and Exchange Commission proposed a new rule that would establish climate-risk disclosure requirements for public companies. The 490-page proposal includes requirements for disclosing direct greenhouse gas emissions (scope 1) and indirect emissions related to use of electricity or other forms of energy (scope 2). While supporters hailed the proposed rule's effort to standardize the disclosures many ESG-focused funds have been making, others zeroed in on a requirement that would obligate larger companies to disclose GHG emissions from upstream suppliers and downstream customers (scope 3).After receiving thousands of comments favoring and opposing the proposal, the SEC postponed its target date for finalizing the rule to spring 2023. Much of the debate centers on the scope of the SEC's authority to mandate climate risk disclosure, an issue that took on additional dimensions after the Supreme Court's June 2022 decision in West Virginia v. EPA, which struck down an EPA rule regulating GHG emissions under the Clean Air Act as contrary to the “major questions doctrine.” Many predict that the final ESG rule will be litigated regardless of what changes the SEC may make to address issues that commenters raised. With the SEC ESG final rule expected soon, this program brings together distinguished speakers who will outline the arguments for and against the SEC's effort to regulate in this area.Paul Ray leads The Heritage Foundation's work on regulatory and economic policy as Director of the Thomas A. Roe Institute for Economic Policy Studies, building on his previous experience as Senate-confirmed Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the Office of Management and Budget. He has written widely on a number of regulatory issues, including the SEC's authority to set corporate climate policy.George Georgiev is an Associate Professor of Law at Emory University Law School, focusing on Business Law, Corporate Governance, Securities Regulation, Mergers & Acquisitions, Corporate Finance, and Executive Compensation. Professor Georgiev co-authored an analysis affirming the SEC's authority to adopt climate-related disclosure rules, and filed comments in the rulemaking.The panel will be moderated by Jane Luxton, Managing Partner of the Washington, DC office of Lewis Brisbois Bisgaard & Smith, and co-chair of the firm's Administrative Law & Regulatory Practice.Visit our website - RegProject.org - to learn more, view all of our content, and connect with us on social media.*******As always, the Federalist Society takes no position on particular legal or public policy issues; all expressions of opinion are those of the speaker.
The Rich Zeoli Show- Full Episode (05/08/2023): 3:05pm- On Monday, President Joe Biden and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg announced a proposal that would mandate airlines compensate passengers for delayed or cancelled flights—the compensation could include hotels, meals, and/or travel vouchers. 3:30pm- While announcing his administration's new policy proposal forcing airlines to compensate passengers for missed or cancelled flight, Biden blamed airlines for individuals being unable to spend time with their families over the holiday season. The Daily Wire's Ben Zeisloft notes, airlines “experienced holiday travel disruptions last year due to extreme winter weather conditions, staff shortages, and an outdated computer system.” You can read more here: https://www.dailywire.com/news/airlines-may-soon-be-on-the-hook-for-delayed-and-canceled-flights-transportation-dept-says 3:45pm- Guy Ciarrocchi—Real Clear Pennsylvania—joins The Rich Zeoli Show to discuss his latest editorial, “The Suburbs Are Pulling Us Apart.” Ciarrocchi writes. “Somewhere, over the last generation, the suburbs had become ground zero for every societal, cultural – and, ultimately, every political – problem in Pennsylvania and in our nation. Think of the battles of just the last few years. The biggest fights over Covid mandates took place in the suburbs – not in rural Pennsylvania, where most people went about their business. Not in Philadelphia, where many could walk to stores or order takeout or delivery, as they did frequently even before the lockdowns.” You can read the Ciarrocchi's full article here: https://www.realclearpennsylvania.com/articles/2023/05/01/the_suburbs_are_pulling_us_apart_896859.html 4:05pm- During ABC's This Week, George Stephanopoulos noted a “brutal” Washington Post/ABC News poll for President Joe Biden—indicating a struggling approval rating, concerns about his age, and a projected 2024 loss in a hypothetical rematch with former President Donald Trump. 4:20pm- According to a report from Politico, the Biden Admin is “bracing for impact” as the Justice Department determines whether or not to charge Hunter Biden. Jonathan Lemire writes, “[i]n conversations, Democrats and senior West Wing aides are downplaying the potential impact, arguing Hunter Biden was a factor in the 2020 election and voters elected his father anyway. They point out the president's top rival, Donald Trump, was just indicted himself. But people close to Biden still worry about the personal toll it will take on a father who has already felt anguish about a son's struggles amid a long history of family tragedy.” You can read Lemire's article here: https://www.politico.com/news/2023/05/06/bracing-for-impact-biden-world-preps-for-hunter-biden-fallout-00095636 4:30pm- Appearing on Fox News with Maria Bartiromo, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) explained that he plans to hold a press conference on Wednesday where he will reveal bank records indicating that the Biden family may have taken money from foreign adversaries. 4:40pm- While appearing on PBS's Firing Line with Margaret Hoover, legendary actor Richard Dreyfuss was critical of the “diversity mandates” adopted by the Academy Awards. Under the new rules, films must meet certain diversity hiring quotas in order to be eligible for the Academy's “best picture” nomination. 4:50pm- During an interview with MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle, President Joe Biden insisted that his son Hunter “has done nothing wrong”—suggesting that he does not believe the Justice Department will charge him with any crimes. 5:05pm- The Drive at 5: Dr. E.J. Antoni—Economist & Research Fellow at The Heritage Foundation—joins The Rich Zeoli Show to discuss President Joe Biden and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg's announced proposal that would mandate airlines compensate passengers for delayed or cancelled flights—the compensation could include hotels, meals, and/or travel vouchers.

You can subscribe to the WPHT YouTube page here: https://www.youtube.com/@1210WPHT 6:05pm- During Monday's White House press briefing, Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dismissed claims that there is a crisis at the U.S. southern border and explained the Biden Administration is doing everything it can—placing the blame for any border issues on Congressional inaction. 6:15pm- While appearing on Face the Nation with Margaret Brennan, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas claimed that the Biden Administration has been preparing for the end of Title 42, and subsequent surge of migrant crossings at the U.S. southern border, for over a year.

“Right now the topic is: will there be war with China? How soon? Someday, there might be another set of questions. Can we win a war with China? If so, how?” says Michael Pillsbury, senior fellow for China strategy at The Heritage Foundation and a co-author of the new report: “Winning the New Cold War: A Plan for Countering China.”“We have to be able to think through: what are our advantages? What are our weaknesses? And how would this war be conducted?” Pillsbury says.Dozens of laws to counter the Chinese Communist Party threat have been proposed in recent years, but how many have actually been passed and implemented?“If you just watch television, you see all these members of the House and Senate bragging about their new legislation. So of course, I would think—and others would think—we're doing a lot to stop the Chinese. What if it's not true?” Pillsbury says.

Governor Mike Huckabee, of "Huckabee" on TBN, looks at the recent Subway Incident in which a 24 year old Marine choked out a Homeless patron in a Subway car in NYC recently that tragically led to the end of his life and how we need to let the process play out before we start name-calling and accusing one side of a crime he may or may not have committed. Giancarlo Canapro, from the Heritage Foundation, looks at a Christian College student body recent demonstrated censorship on a guest speaker by not allowing this person to enter their college campus after a recent discovery on this guests social media page.

The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to review the Fifth Circuit decision in CFSA v. CFPB that held the CFPB's funding violates the Appropriations Clause of the U.S. Constitution. After reviewing the history of the case from its initial filing to the Supreme Court's grant of certiorari, we discuss the Fifth Circuit's interpretation of the Appropriations Clause and the Second Circuit's conflicting interpretation in its recent decision holding that the CFPB's funding is constitutional and assess the strength of each interpretation and the reasoning of each decision. We then turn to how the Supreme Court might analyze the case, including how its analysis might differ from that of the Fifth Circuit but still conclude the CFPB's funding is unconstitutional and whether the views expressed by several of the conservative justices on the “administrative state” are likely to factor into those justices' interpretations of the Appropriations Clause.
The test results are in, and America's children are failing history and civics.According to the “Nation's Report Card,” just 13% of eighth graders are proficient in U.S. history, and only 22% are proficient in civics.Every four years, the National Assessment of Educational Progress captures how well America's students are performing in major subjects. The latest scores, released this week, are “the lowest numbers ever recorded for the NAEP scores in civics and in history over the past 25 years,” says Adam Kissel, a visiting fellow in higher education reform at The Heritage Foundation.Kissel says there is no doubt that school closures during the COVID-19 pandemic played a role in the learning loss. As for the drop in proficiency in history and civics, he says, "I would guess that after the Black Lives Matter movement got popular in 2020, a lot of teachers changed their curriculum around and taught less of the basics and more activism-type topics, and that might have been a factor as well.”In response to the troublingly low test scores, Education Secretary Miguel Cardona issued a written statement.“We need to provide every student with rich opportunities to learn about America's history and understand the U.S. Constitution and how our system of government works,” Cardona said.He added: “Banning history books and censoring educators from teaching these important subjects does our students a disservice and will move America in the wrong direction.”“He's wrong on both of those points,” Kissel says of President Joe Biden's education secretary. “His solution is really the opposite of what schools need to do.” Kissel joins this episode of “The Daily Signal Podcast” to explain why America's kids are floundering in history and civics classes, and to offer practical solutions to repair America's failing education system.Enjoy the show!

These radical elites have rejected the idea of personal sin and replaced it with social injustice. They've rejected traditional values and replaced them with a dangerously misguided individualism that is misusing our liberties to destroy freedom as we've known it. In his incomparable, no-holds-barred style, Donohue offers a commonsense solution to restoring the virtues in the workplace and defending universal morality. You will learn the hard-hitting truth about the dangers of multiculturalism, the “blame America” campaign, the Black Lives Matter movement, and Critical Race Theory.
