The Villanova football team is now ranked as high as 5th in the country in FCS after a gigantic 28-27 win on the road last weekend at James Madison. The Wildcats overcome an 11 point halftime deficit, shut out the Dukes in the second half, and snapped JMU's 20 game regular season winning streak, their 19 game home winning streak, and a 15 game winning streak against Colonial Athletic Association teams, including the playoffs. The win was sealed when the Wildcats converted a 4th and 1 from their own 29 with less than 2 minutes left. Head coach Mark Ferrante join's Matt Leon to talk about that win, the gutsy decision to go for it on that 4th down, and also take a look ahead at Villanova's next game on Saturday against Albany on the road.    See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

President Joe Biden's vaccine mandate is unconstitutional, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich says. Brnovich filed a lawsuit against the president and other Biden administration officials on Tuesday, arguing that the vaccine mandate is an assault on state sovereignty. "[W]e know from reading Federalist 45 and Federalist 51 that people like James Madison, who wrote the Constitution, expected the states to push back against the federal government," Brnovich says.The attorney general, a Republican, also says, “Nowhere in the Constitution does it provide or does it allow the president or the federal government to require any sort of vaccines."Last week, Biden signed an executive order mandating the vaccination of all federal employees and contract workers. The president also directed the Department of Labor to write a rule mandating all organizations with 100 employees or more to require all their employees be vaccinated or tested weekly. Brnovich says the president's actions not only violate American freedoms, but also the equal protection clause of the Constitution.The Arizona attorney general joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to explain what he hopes to accomplish through the suit.We also cover these stories:Idaho puts in place crisis standards of care throughout the state, citing the number of COVID-19 patients requiring hospitalization.After an article from The Daily Signal and a press release from The Heritage Foundation, online retailer Amazon rescinds an ad ban for a new book released by Heritage Foundation scholar Mike Gonzalez.

September 17 is Constitution Day—the anniversary of the Framers signing the Constitution in 1787. This week's episode dives into what happened after the Constitution was signed—when it had to be approved “we the people,” a process known as ratification—and the arguments made on behalf of the Constitution. A major collection of those arguments was The Federalist, today often referred to as The Federalist Papers, which were a collection of essays written by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay using the pen name Publius that they circulated around the country. Our guests Judge Gregory Maggs, author of the article “A Concise Guide to the Federalist Papers as a Source of the Original Meaning of the United States Constitution,” and Colleen Sheehan, professor and co-editor of The Cambridge Companion to the Federalist, shed light on the questions: What did the Federalist papers say? What did their writers set out to do? What were their authors reading and becoming inspired by when they wrote them? How widely were they read? What was so original about their thinking? And how are they continually used today, including in opinions written by various Supreme Court justices? Jeffrey Rosen hosts.

Today We Get To Kick Back and Crack Open A Brew, While We Learn How The Salami Is Made. Welcome to September 7th, 2021 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate learning how the sausage is made and a top down love for beer. While American cuisine boasts an array of international flavors, today we celebrate an Italian favorite.  The Latin word “salumen” means a mixture of salted meats. Salami is a generic term used to describe any encased meat product, but in Italy this typically means pork.  In the same way that cheeses are named for the place in which they're made, salami is more specifically identified by its native region.  This could be Salami di Felino from Parma or Soppressata from Calabria.  The sausages vary by spice and curing process, but most are tied and aged in cool dark cellars for days or months.  On National Salami Day, try something truly special as you find out how the sausage is made.   Americans have loved beer from the beginning. George Washington was a huge fan of porters. Thomas Jefferson kept his home well stocked with beer. James Madison wanted to establish a national brewery and appoint a Secretary of Beer. Sadly, that idea did not come to fruition. Franklin Roosevelt continued this presidential tradition. When he came into office, FDR promised to have Prohibition repealed. And before the ban was lifted on any other alcohol, Roosevelt signed an executive order to legalize the sale of—you guessed it—beer. During National Beer Lover's Day, crack open a cold one and enjoy the drink that's a favorite of world leaders and regular Joes alike. I'm Anna Devere and I'm Marlo Anderson.  Thanks for joining us as we Celebrate Every Day.

Hume found that there seems to be a significant difference between positive statements (about what is) and prescriptive normative statements (about what ought to be), and that it is not obvious how one can coherently move from descriptive statements to prescriptive ones. While Hume was dealing with moral philosophy, a related epistemological concept derived from Hume's thought is the fact-value distinction, in which statements of fact based upon reason and physical observation, and which are examined via the empirical method, are separate from statements of value, which encompass ethics and aesthetics. This barrier between 'fact' and 'value' implies it is impossible to derive ethical claims from factual arguments, or to defend the former using the latter. 5:44 - James Madison lays out his views on a large diverse republic in Federalist No. 10, see the Wikipedia entry as well10:33 - See the great “Cognitive bias cheat sheet” and “What Can We Do About Our Bias?” by Buster Benson writing for Better Humans12:49 - Listen to Season 2, Episode 18 of Conversations With Coleman: The Myth of Climate Apocalypse with Michael Shellenberger (YouTube), more on Coleman Hughes and Michael Shellenberger13:27 - From the Season 2, Episode 22 show notes of Conversations With Coleman (YouTube): "My second announcement today is about my interview with Michael Shellenberger from a few weeks back. It seems that Michael made some very misleading or outright false claims about the connection between climate change and extreme weather events. Specifically, he said that climate change did not contribute to the intensity of wildfires in California and Australia. It was a surprising claim to me at the time, but I didn't push back in the moment. Although in retrospect, I should have because it turns out this is not the consensus of the climate science community. Some of his other claims, including that we're not in a sixth mass extinction are at the very least far more controversial than he indicated. So to rectify this, I'm going to get a mainstream climate scientist on the show very soon, and cover all of these topics in detail."13:34 - Factfulness by Hans Rosling22:04 - In his 2018 book Stubborn Attachments economist Tyler Cowen argues that “[t]he lives of humans born decades from now might be difficult for us to imagine, or to treat as of equal worth to our own.

James Madison wrote in Federalist 55, “Had every Athenian been a Socrates; every Athenian assembly would still have been a mob.”  What did he mean?  The Founders knew representation was central to the American experiment so it was no accident that the Constitution created our legislative branch before any other.  They were also wary of that branch having too much law-making power so they split that authority into a bicameral legislature.  While the Federalists wanted to give more power, like taxation, to Congress, the Anti-Federalists were wary of such “enlargement.”  Unsurprisingly, that debate continues today.  Please join our panel and special guest Tony Williams from the Bill of Rights Institute as we deep dive into the structure of the “first branch.”

The Taliban are the ideological equivalent of early-century barbarians. What is the United States giving the Taliban in these negotiations to get Afghans to the Kabul airport? Then, support for the withdrawal plummets as the Taliban has taken control. One poll indicates that upon learning that the Taliban would regain power, most people no longer support a withdrawal from Afghanistan. Later, the Donald Trump critics chant that Trump negotiated this withdrawal, what they fail to recognize is that Trump's approach was principled and based on making progress in Afghanistan, not the chaos that's occurring now. Trump was firm and always willing to cut a deal, but he never would have surrendered leaving contractors, and civilians behind. Afterward, James Madison's writings on property rights are clear, yet the Supreme Court and Joe Biden disagree. In the same way we protect our private property we must protect our own bodies. The government must not be the entity that decides what happens to one's own property; the individual's liberty is their own to protect and utilize as they wish. Madison concluded that a government that doesn't sacredly guard private property rights is therefore putting it in peril.

His name is Dennis C. Rasmussen and he's a professor of political theory and the author of Fears of a Setting Sun: The Disillusionment of America's Founders. Today on the show, Dennis unpacks how four of the founders — George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson — ultimately came to worry that the American republic wouldn't last past their own generation, based on concerns that ranged from the rise of partisanship to a lack of virtue amongst the American citizenry. Dennis also discusses why it was that one founder, James Madison, remained optimistic about the future of the country. We end our conversation with why the disillusionment of the founders actually carries a message of hope for us. Get the show notes at aom.is/settingsun.
