'Defenders of the West' Author Raymond Ibrahim Shares His Background

"Raymond Ibrahim, welcome to the program. Hi, Eric. Great to be with you. Thanks. Don't be nervous that you're sitting in for John's mirac. Others have done it before. Many of them have died, violent deaths. But I'm just saying, just put that out of your mind. But when John's mirac raves and raves about someone, it's really not difficult to us for us to understand, we need to get this person. And so we're just really grateful to you for coming on. And tell my audience a little bit about yourself. I mentioned that you're the author of a brand new book called defenders of the west, the Christian heroes who stood against Islam. What is your own background? I know you have an Egyptian background as well. Yeah, so my family is the cops Coptic every time I say that word coughs have to people ask me what precincts I come from, but cops Coptic of course the indigenous Christians from Egypt so my parents immigrated to the United States in the mid 60s. I was born and raised here. Because of that background being coming from a Christian minority sect from the Middle East, surrounded by Islam. I was always interested in, of course, in those issues, but then in college, as you mentioned, Victor David saints and was my professor for many years and I'm proud to say a friend and mentor and so forth. I naturally gravitated towards history, military history, and then long story short in 2001 when I was writing my master's thesis with the Victor Davis as Victor David Sanchez my chair. It was actually about the first military encounter between Islam and the west for really Christianity, Christendom. And because I was employing the languages I was studying, Arabic and Greek and so forth. And anyway, long story short, and then that's when 9 11 happened and I went to Georgetown university, studied there for a little bit in their contemporary center for Arab studies, which is, as I later found out, it was very ideologically charged. And I left there. Despite stellar performance, I might add straight age, but I had to leave there just because of the political reasons and then I got a job at the Library of Congress in the near east section where I dealt with Arabic materials and other Middle Eastern languages. Sounds writings by Al-Qaeda in the early 2000s and long story short. That got translated into my first book, the Al-Qaeda reader,

Who Can Speak Freely on University Campuses?

"However, I want to go to the list of the most absurd universities that you probably don't want to see in your kids too if you want them to have an open mind and have the freedom of speech. Skidmore, I have never heard of skidmore university. You just give more college as a private college. They're amongst the top 5 words. Georgetown university, I think it's rinsler, polytechnic, I could be saying it wrong, it's a private university. University of Pennsylvania and Columbia university. And so kids from Colombia university has something to say about them being ranked last, obviously there was a mixed emotions when they were interviewed on campus. But one of them said, I think everyone here is very open minded and so I'm not sure are really sure where this is coming from. And in the article we read, it says, however, Rihanna, a senior at Avi Lee school, said, of course, people think they can't say things. I think people think they might be judged by the majority. If you go through the statistics and you look at the biases, right? I mean, you would think that people on campus that are afraid to speak would be generally anybody who wants to speak out. However, there's a disproportionate representation of conservatives. That are afraid to speak out. According to statistical data from fire dot org, it says that conservative students are most likely to feel they can not express their opinions freely with 42% reporting that they often feel uncomfortable speaking freely compared to 13% of liberal students.

'Supreme Disorder' Author Ilya Shapiro on His Georgetown Experience

"Guys about a very interesting story, it's with our next guest Ilya Shapiro. I'm an Ilya for quite a while. We spent some fun time together. So Elio is run out of Georgetown university. It's an extraordinary story and he's the author of a new book called supreme disorder. Exposes how politics has infiltrated the Supreme Court in the worst possible way with this right now to help us unpack that is Ilya Shapiro. Ilya, welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Good to be with you. I've also recently launched a new sub stack Shapiro's gavel. So in addition to the book, go check that out. Very good. So Ilya tell us what happened at Georgetown. It's a very interesting story. And I mean, you know I'm no fan of college, that's not a mystery to anybody, so it just basically confirms all of my criticisms, which I'm going to deliciously enjoy. Tell us what happened to you at Georgetown university. Sure. I've been at the Cato institute for nearly 15 years. The nation's preeminent libertarian think tank. And decided that maybe I should look for a new challenge, have a different kind of impact. Got a very interesting offer from Georgetown law school to become executive director of their center for the constitution as it turned out the rest of the law school is basically the center against the constitution. But what we can get to that, a few days before I was due to take that job in February, was when justice Breyer's retirement leaked. And I was doing media on that. Supreme Court politics is my area. And I was critical of President Biden's decision to limit his candidate search by race and gender, famously. He said he would pick a black woman. And I thought, you know, if I was a progressive Democrat president, I would pick judge Sri srinivasan, chief judge of the D.C. circuit, who's an Indian American, would be the first Indian or Asian American, has to be an immigrant as well. So lots of diversity points too. But not the right kind, it turns out. And so by operation of logic, we would, in my mind, end up with someone less qualified, a worse choice for a democratic president. And given Biden's criteria, I phrased that in Twitter's limitations as a lesser black woman. And really, it's those three words that got me in hot water. The manufactured outrage machine on social media and beyond calling for my head. I eventually

Why 'Supreme Disorder' Author Ilya Shapiro Resigned From Georgetown

"Guys, I'm really happy to welcome to the podcast Ilya Shapiro. He's senior fellow director of constitutional studies at the Manhattan institute, but previously he was the executive director and senior lecturer at Georgetown university, the center for the constitution. He's the author of supreme disorder and other works. I want to talk about his experience at Georgetown and related to some of the larger issues we're dealing with in academia. Ilya, welcome to the podcast, great to have you, it seems like you've gone through a kind of a traumatic experience that Georgetown. But I think you're not alone in facing this kind of an issue. So maybe I'll begin by just asking you to describe what happened at Georgetown. It all started, I believe, with a tweet. Yeah. Yeah, good to be with you, dinesh. I had been at the Cato institute for nearly 15 years doing constitutional law. And thought it might be a good time in my career to switch to try to have a different kind of impact, got a wonderful offer from Georgetown to head up the center with alongside professor Randy Barnett, a giant of constitutional law. A few days before I was due to assume my new duties, so this is at the end of January, when news of justice Breyer's retirement leaked, I was doing media that day, I was on the road. I was in Austin, Texas, and used what's not a best practice in doom scrolling my Twitter feed late at night in my hotel room, and was unhappy with President Biden's having declared that he would be limiting his candidate pool by race and sex. He said that he'd pick a black woman. And I said, well, look, and to my mind, if I were a democratic president, I would pick Sri srinavasan. He would be the first Indian American justice as well, very well reputed on the D.C. circuit. But of course, he's disqualified because it doesn't have the right intersectional characteristics. And that tweet set off a firestorm. I was even before joining Georgetown, I was suspended, and there was a four month long investigation into whether my commentary violated the university's harassment and anti discrimination policies. At the end of which they discovered, oh, one of their lawyers looked at the calendar and realized I had not been an employee when I tweeted. And so those policies didn't even apply

Tucker Carlson: Nina Jankowicz' One Skill Is Level Partisan Attacks

"Tucker Carlson last night. His analysis cut 15. Here's Tucker after he watched the Nina jankowicz, the new disinformation czar, channeling Mary Poppins to announce on TikTok, her new role, here was Tucker's classic response. Since the point of the show, we're going to say we're kidding, we're making all of this up. It's not really happening in the country you were born in, but it is happening. That's now a law enforcement official. It's also the person you just saw an individual who brags about getting a master's degree from Georgetown university. In case you were wondering if the entire academic credentialing machine that sustains America's ruling class is in fact a joke spoiler alert, yes, it is a joke. This is somebody was so few useful skills that she describes herself in the first words of her own bio as a quote internationally recognized expert on disinformation. As if that's a job of some sort. Imagine if one of your kids grew up to be an internationally recognized expert on disinformation. The shame you would feel. The pain of knowing that truly an unequivocally you had failed as a parent. After all those years of advanced education, Nina jankowicz became an internationally recognized expert on disinformation. And not only that, she can't even rhyme very well. When Nina Jenkins can do her one skill, the purpose for which she was hired is level partisan attacks on the other side with maximum ferocity. That is her real job. Now you may have noticed if you listen carefully to the diddy did she just say that every example of disinformation her karaoke performance came from people who oppose Joe Biden's policies? Is that a coincidence? Probably not.

It goes up to the decision. Makers the ceo of the company and that's true with the federal government level as well the trump administration wanted to roll back the fuel economy standards that were set by the obama administration and so they went to the epa and the department of transportation. They said in order to rollback regulations. You have to do the same serious analysis as was done to to enact the regulation in the first place and so the analyst did the regulation the analysts it was the same analyst who had done analysis to put the regulation forward in the first place that had net benefits that were positive and so undoing. The regulation would reduce those would have net costs. And in fact that's what the department of transportation's regulatory impact analysis showed it showed. This will be net harmful to american cars consumers and yet the olympic passed it and president trump signed it and it was Finalized as regulation now this week in the news. It's come under scrutiny. Because some of the epa analysts Work were complained about the process and left out of the loop on that process but they announced this was done. It showed net costs.

Oh era is the acronym And they are the gatekeeper for these regulations. So every regular every regulatory agency that promulgates a economically significant piece of regulation like cafe standards or carbon standard or a new healthcare rule. They have to really serious cost benefit analysis which they calculate what you said the net present value of the benefits versus the costs and they have to compare that against alternatives. And if they don't do that right the of information and regulatory affairs can send it back and if they don't do that right they can get sued in court and have the Have the regulation Sent back to the agency so it's taken really seriously. There are good engineers and good economists at the agencies that work on these things. They're nine hundred. Page long documents with charts and tables and graphs and everything you want to know about the industry so this is a is a serious process and And i think it's pretty well done in a lot of cases so let me push on this little bit hard so in companies You know be be do this because our spreadsheets lot of Finance and accounting Folks who do this models But oftentimes they you know nothing is intimate mistake.

And no one of these cost-benefit they're called regulatory impact analyses none none of these regulatory impact analysis exist without abundant sensitivity..

"So you ask the question. What would i policy be. My policy would be tax or something that emulated attacks the benefit of attacks is that equates the incremental cost of every dollar every unit of pollution reduced across all the different activities. So you think of it this way if we're doing two different activities to reduce pollution one's really expensive per unit of cleanup and one's really cheap per unit of cleanup. We should do more of the cheap one in less of the expensive one and we could get just as much cleanup at the same cost. And that's the benefit of attacks. It gets an outcome like that tradable permits same thing now as you point out people don't like taxes and one of the reasons they don't like taxes On environmental goods is that they think of the gas tax low income people pay less in gas taxes than than high income people. But they pay more as a share of their incomes because their incomes are lower. So if you're poor and you drive half as much as rich person but you have only the can't attend the income that taxes a bigger burden on you. Then the rich person and so people like that that nature of the gas tax that it's disproportionately falling on poor people as a percentage of their incomes but misses two points. The first is that ignores what we do with the revenues if we took all the revenues from the gas tax and we gave it to low income people that would of course make them way better off and there are many proposals on the table. Right now To impose a carbon tax to refund the money so carbon tax for every Activity that you undergo your taxed. According to the carbon content of activity using electricity driving your car cooking on your stove but then the revenue was all pooled and handed out to households on a per household basis or a per person basis regardless of how much electricity or gas you consume and so since low income people use less energy than high income people they would pay less in taxes and receive the same benefit same benefit check high income people would pay more in taxes and receive the same benefit check and so this is effectively. A transfer of income from high income people to low income people and conservatives. Don't like that proposal because it's income. Redistribution so got to be politically some happy medium between returning all the money per household per person. Which would be income. Redistribution and just taxing low income taxing people on the basis of their gasoline consumption of energy consumption and putting it into the general revenues. Some happy medium between those should be able to thread then the political needle and get it passed. Yeah this is very intuitive from an economic perspective and It's sometimes difficult for general public To fall behind on and policies ultimately depends on Help people internalized. Information is sometimes think about this. You know in inc's You know in business. Schools reteach the investment and financing decisions. Have to be separate But most managers in companies. Don't actually do that sure. Yeah i think in this case. It's a politically the the if the gas tax are the carbon tax is the right thing to do economically then politically. Maybe we can use the revenues in such a way that gets that passed so get the stakeholders electrity consumers. Not worse off Get the unions on board by building a high speed transit or whatever it is they want You some of the monies to set the capital gains tax of the corporate income tax or whatever would get conservatives on board. There's a big pot of money..

"Mike yesterday. Professor rx levinson. Who is professor of economics at georgetown university. He's known for his defeat of energy conomic and glad middle economics. Welcome thank you nice to be here. Thanks for doing this. I wanted to start with one of your earlier. Peoples in two thousand one the simple analytics of the end blind mental kushner's curve in which you say evidence suggests that some pollutants photo an inwards u-shaped pattern ltd two countries incomes edition. Should that has been called an environmental kusners curve. So this this idea eric. I know much about this. Obviously so the. The low income countries have consumption and cans low put pollutants level in high income countries white consumption but the technology to take care of that. So the clarity sort of stuck in the middle who is creating the pollution is is that true. I think that You kept you you. You captured it. Pretty well The idea goes back to the early. Nineteen nineties when Some researchers at the world bank noticed this pattern that in the early nineteen nineties data was first starting to come in at about pollution levels all over the world and researchers the world bec noticed. The poor countries don't have much economic activity and so they don't have much industry don't have many cars since they don't have much pollution. The middle income countries are the ones that were industrializing and getting worse and worse. Pollution and the richest countries in the world like the united states and japan and northern europe didn't have much air pollution and clean water and that was a On one level that was a a revelation because before that there was a sentiment among a lot of analysts that economic growth and environmental degradation went hand in hand. And so if we're gonna solve the environmental problem we would have to slow economic growth. Yes this documentation of this patterns showed that at least on the surface. That wasn't true. But as you intimated in your introduction this could be for a lot of reasons it could be that poor countries make a mistake and they have bad policies and then they they fix it. Your you know some conservatives pointed to this pattern and said oh this is evidence that that clean up automatic and all we have to do is get rich. And then the environmental take care of itself.

Intelligence Report Says Russia Tried To Help Trump In 2020

"Russia tried to influence a U. S presidential election. That's the conclusion of a new U. S intelligence report this time the 2020 election. Says Russian President Vladimir Putin authorized a misinformation campaign against Joe Biden and used people close to President Trump to undermine the election and to try to divide America. President Biden was asked about it in an interview today on ABC is Good Morning America. He will pay a price. We had a long talk and I we've known relatively well. And the conversation. Start off. I said, I know you and you know me If I established this occurred, then be prepared well, President Biden has his work cut out for him when it comes to repairing the U. S relationship with Russia. Says My next guest, Angela Stent, a long time Russia watcher, She leads the center for Eurasian, Russian and East European studies at Georgetown University. Welcome to the program. Glad to be on your program. Well, what do you make of that report? So I think the report confirms things that people had already suspected. So the Russians wanted to do at least two things. One of them was obviously to boost a president Trump's chances of being re elected and to denigrate Joe Biden when it became clear that he was going to be the candidate on particularly all of these rumors about his son and the son's laptop and corruption. And then the second one really had to do with Ukraine, because when President Biden was vice president, he really had the Ukraine account. He was very active there, and they knew that if he got reelected, probably the United States would ramp up its efforts to help the Ukrainians in their struggle against the Russians. And so that's where the Ukraine anger comes in. To try and reinforce the idea that no one should want to deal with this country because it was so corrupt. And when they talk about people close to President Trump being used by the Russians to spread disinformation. They didn't name any names in the report. But were they really referring to, really Giuliani? I think we have to assume they were because we have photographs off Mr Giuliani with some of the Ukrainians and Russians that are mentioned in the report. And what did they say? The Russians did with someone like Giuliani, how exactly where they being used to spread misinformation. So they, you know, they told them all these things they presumably may have given them some things and writing. They had these recordings off vice president. Then Biden talking to various Ukrainians, and then they also reached out to the U. S media. So, Mr Giuliani, if it is, indeed him had this information, but they reached out to the media via. You know their contacts. And if you like agents in the United States So you have some of this obviously made its way to Fox News on another pro trump media outlets again. All of the you know, accusing candidate Biden of being in cahoots with

White House moves up vaccine supply timeline, says U.S. will have enough for every adult by end of May

"Good news this week in the race to end this pandemic, this country will have enough vaccine supply of state again for every adult in America. By the end of May. By the end of May. That's progress. Important progress. This comes as the governors of Texas and Mississippi have lifted all pandemic restrictions in their states and new variants of the Corona virus are popping up around the world and in the U. S. There's a lot to talk about that we're setting aside the next hour to answer your questions about the vaccination effort. Joining me now is Dr Lena when she's a visiting professor at the Milken Institute School of Public Health. She's also an ER physician and the former Baltimore City health commissioner. Dr Wen. It's always great to have you To speak with you. Also with us Angela Rasmussen. She's a virologist, and she's also an affiliate at the Georgetown University Center for Global Health, Science and Security. Angela Welcome back. Thanks for having me back then a doctor win enough vaccine for every adult in America by the end of May. That's an aggressive timeline. Do you think we can get there? Well, I think we should break this down into three categories. In terms of where are the barriers to vaccination to having people actually getting the vaccine and their arms. The first barrier is that of supply. The second is that of distribution. The third. Is that a vaccine hesitant or acceptance of the vaccine. What President Biden announced is that by the end of name, we're going to solve the supply issue. That is we'll have enough supplies. You were saying for every adult American to have the vaccine. That doesn't mean that by the end of May, everyone is going to be able to get the vaccine because then once we get the supply, we need to move into addressing these other issues of administration and also of addressing hesitancy. So do I think that will get the supply? I certainly hope so. And so far, President Biden has been very good about not over promising. So I expect that this is going to be the case, which is fantastic, because supply right now is the limiting factor. Um I do think that a lot more work lies ahead of us in terms of actually getting that last mile logistics of getting the vaccines into arms and then also overcoming vaccine hesitancy. Available. Vaccines do not equal shots in arms. As you say, Doctor win, and the previous timeline was to have every American adult vaccinated by the end of July. Angela's we're seeing more variants. Developed. How urgent is it that we really ramp up vaccination? Well, it's very urgent on So given that people will be out there moving around more, the variants are becoming more and more prevalent. It's really, really crucial that we get vaccines into arms as quickly as possible. One thing people should really keep in mind and echoing what Dr Wen just said. Is that vaccines don't save lives. Vaccination saves lives, So we really, really need to buckle down and focus on making sure that we can get people vaccinated as quickly as possible. Well, we got this

"Of some of the representational politics of industry and business and various sectors that champion diversity inclusion but are reticent to make real kind of overwhelming structural change. So i think that in many ways she's a status quo candidate which is her perogative. It's her right to be. And so i don't know if she's engaged in the kind of conversations that are necessary in order to kind of creative vision of healing and at the same time. I do know that this is no small thing for her to achieve this. I understand the heavy lift that she had to be engaged in the hard work. But i don't think that she. I don't think she brings that kind of leadership to the nation though she may be strong in some other areas. Now that i think that's fair and that's unfortunately a needle one has to threat at this point in our history as well perhaps just to try to get elected right getting elected the first world and we'll see what impact has going forward and and in fact where the electric pushes her to go. What impact you think. Black women's votes. This is probably. You could probably write another book on this topic. But i'll let us. We'll see what you can do with it in a short version. What impact do you think. Black women's votes have had on america so far in america. So far you know. They've covered the spread. I mean may really helped. Close the distance in some really really important campaigns. They have allowed the modern democratic party to thrive on the local and national level. There's a there's no kind of democratic party and there's no possibility of left progressive politics without black women's participation in voting and other types of public service. So i think they've been critical. I think that what they don't fairly represent is the complexity and diversity of black women's political thought. Because i think you can make a case that you know. Black voters are are aligning with the democratic party in a kind of in the interest of harm reduction in some contexts and in other contexts. You know they really do. Celebrate what the party spouses. And in some cases it's participation for the hopes of pushing the party for their left. But i think that this is why this period is such an important history lesson for us all that before. Black women's right to vote was universally respected in nineteen sixty five. Black women were integral in public service. Whether or not they had the vote. And i think sometimes the problem in the encouragement of people to vote in the excitement about voting. Is we lose sight of the fact that we have a critical mass of people. This country were not eligible to vote and they believe in public service and they imbue community and they do a lot of really important work and so for black women who were women's clubs are building kindergartens in old folks homes and they're making sure that you know..

If you will Racial solidarity behind the vote. Yes so one of the things that i think. A lot of people don't understand from how they're taught history is that we often think of the issue of slavery as one in which people were either pro or anti and it's often presented as a matter of north versus south union versus confederacy. But if you look at the movement to end slavery and look at abolitionists. They all had very different ideas of what happens next. They knew that slavery is a scourge on the nation. But they didn't agree on. What would it mean for african americans to be elevated to the level of status rather the level of a citizen and what that status should mean and so there were people who were abolitionists but they were segregationists. There were abolitionists who believed that african americans should be repatriated to colonies in africa. They were people who believed in complete and total social equality in some people believed in some level of social quality but not marriage and so those debates among the abolitionist movement i think are very much mirrored in the debate among white selfridge's who should get the vote i who should be allowed to vote. And what measures should be taken in order to ensure their desired goals

Thanks thanks for doing this from germany. yeah i want to start with one of your book chapters The declarative procedural more like sometimes de model a noodle biologically motivated theory of first and second language in which us talked of saying in evolution and biology previously existing structures and mechanisms are constantly being reused and that is co opted for purposes. So you are arguing in this chapter. Mike lange tend to that that the subjects in the brain that appeared to be involved in language learning and language. Three production also gets that That we have been using for other purposes so he takes sort of even predates homo sapiens. Right that's correct. So the basic idea is that given that in evolution and biology. Existing mechanisms are systems tend to be reused for new functions rather than completely the novo appearing from scratch. That should be the case for language as well. And simply we focus on these two learning and memory circuits often referred to as declarative memory and procedural memory because these are arguably the two most important learning and memory circuits in the brain and most of all language has to be learned and therefore it seems. We've the goal to predict that language should therefore be learned importantly in these two learning memory. Circuits anita really old. Forcus as you were saying. So you can find these circuits or precursors to them in other vertebrates. So for example The circuits underlying procedural memory a structure called the basal. Ganglia are what helps sombre thumbs or declarative memory. Also example in birds of both existed. Mammals of course Declarative memory helps a burbs. Remember for example where they stash their acorns so these are all circuits and the basic idea. Is these have been. We used co opted for this new function in homo sapiens. Even if they might have become more specialized for language right so it could be co opted for language without being changed or with some further changes for this particular domain yet. That's fascinating because Often be think of language as Something unique to humans and And so if the steelers correct michael and i think that it's enough evidence it is It basically means that we had the hardware and the sort of stumbled onto language and started using the existing hardware for language. That's right and it's not exactly clear to what extent there might be additional specialization for language. Rights you can ask the question. Why if this is correct. Why don't mice have have language for example or songbirds and we don't know the answer to that you know. It's probably some combination of the circuits becoming more specialized. An additional circuitry in the brain evolving for example that massive frontal lobe develop frontal lobe development in humans. That baby gives these circus circus moore to work with something like that but the bottom line is that language is rooted in his preexisting shortcuts. Even if something new all sort of yes. I would Big little deeper into these two circuits so declarative and procedural circuits and they are both Both involved in memorization but in different ways right. So how'd you could french shaved clean to do so the way that we define the to learning and memory systems is neuro anatomically. So it's quite a precise definition. So we define declared if memory as the learning and memory that or rooted in the hippocampus and associated circuitry breakfast connected to the hippocampus and procedural memory as the learning and memory that or wooded in the basal ganglia and associated circuitry. And so they were saying ever learning happens in kept us and connected. Structures is declarative memory and analogously for procedural memory and the basal ganglia. Now this is somewhat a more precise more. Testable definition of to earning memories that have traditionally been used Where for example. There's a lot of times in the past declared a memory with simply defined as the learning and memory that is explicit that we are conscious. Awareness can verbalize that we can declare the original name and procedural memory s kind of implicit non learning that his burning of stuff. That's not available to conscious but are are much more precise and it could like. I can also talk about what these what these brain structures actually are like where they aren't the brain. Yeah yeah that'd be good michael. Yeah just briefly. How river located and do they interact with each other and also instead of specialization between short and long-term.
