"Those of us who love our constitution, those of us who love capitalism, and those of us who love electoral victory confront this so called populists. I read a piece at the daily signal. Which is part of the heritage foundation. Which was embarrassingly incoherent. Nonetheless it was pushing the notion of populism and it says we have to surrender. Old fashioned, free market conservatism. Oh, really? Oh, really? I want to talk about this when we return because the nitwits who keep pushing this. They don't even know what the hell they're talking about. They don't even define their terms. What do they mean? You know what populism is, economic populism, it's a form of soft socialism. They don't mind the government running certain industries. They don't mind the government. Regulating up to its eyeballs, certain industries, just not as much as the Marxist left. But they don't tell us where the line of demarcation. But when the government should kick in, or how much should kick in, are where these genius masterminds are going to come from. Since we can't seem to find them already in the government. Who are the people who are capable of doing these things? They never explain those things to us. You know why? Because they can't.

Rolling Back the Wave of Cultural Marxism With Katie Gorka

"Have in studio none other than my boss, my muse. Katie gawker. Katie, it's been a long time. I haven't seen you in a while. Husband, it's been at least 20 minutes. Oh, why are you writing my credit instantly there? Although you have been on the road quite a bit lately, so it's nice to have you back in the swamp at least with me. And we have perfect timing for this discussion because you launch something very special today at the heritage foundation. You've been working on it for, I don't know, it feels like years, along with Mike Gonzales. So what is the title of the report that you've launched? It's how cultural Marxism threatens the United States and the most important part because it's always so what part, how Americans can fight it. So first things first, you and I national security backgrounds. I've been teaching Canada for almost 20 years. We had a company together, you specialize on the ideology of Jihad as well. You rose up through the swamp to actually serve the presidential appointee at the Department of Homeland Security. So why this paper? We'll talk about why the timing, but you're an expert on external threats. Now you're looking inwards. So give us the reason for this massive study. So it really came about because of my colleague, Mike Gonzalez, at the heritage foundation. Mike is has been absolutely extraordinary. These last three years, his focus in his expertise is really identity politics. Undermining what the left cause identity, but the truth about it. Yes. Right. The truth about the book on BLM and everything else. Yes. And actually, his extraordinary work, which I think came out before the book on BLM was a book where he really showed how we constructed this notion of Hispanic identity. I mean, before that, people would come here and they would just want to become Americans. But the left created these identities. Now to the point at which there's a box you tick on a federal form. Exactly. And that's exactly one of the points he makes, and that's exactly one of the points we address in our paper that we need to get rid of that. We want to be Americans. We don't want to be in our individual boxes. So

"heritage foundation" Discussed on KOMO

"Justice Samuel Alito spoke out about the leak of his draft opinion that eventually overturned roe versus wade and Washington Post's and Moro is reporting on those comments. She talked more about them with northwest news radio steeler van sys. And we all probably assumed that he wasn't happy about the leak, but what did justice Alito say specifically? Yes, these were justice Alito's most extensive public remarks since the court overturned roe V wade for the summer. And he said, this is during a public event. He's interviewed by the conservative heritage foundation that the league last spring before the court eliminated roe made his colleagues in the majority of the Supreme Court quote targets for assassination. He said that the threat to justices was not theoretical that it gave people what he said was a quote rational reason to think they could prevent the overturning of roe by quote killing one of us. And he did point to the fact that a California man was arrested outside the home of justice Brett Kavanaugh, a conservative who did support overturning roe and charged in an assassination attempt. Now, as far as I could tell, I was trying to see if maybe he had any sense of regret from that overruling of roe versus wade. I couldn't really see that coming through though. Did you pick up on anything like that? So this was a talk about his judicial philosophy and justice Alito is a conservative and originalist and textualist who wrote in his opinion to overturn the 1973 decision. That there is no guarantee to constitutional right to abortion in the constitution and that that's the decision that should be left to the states. And he firmly stands against by that. Public approval of the court really tanked when roe was overturned and the conservative majority on the court kind of reignited the idea also of expanding the bench, even previous to the road ruling. Did he touch on those topics at that heritage foundation event? Yes, I think what was really telling to me is that even though the last term is over, there are still hard feelings about the way that it ended remaining and a lot of the justices have been speaking publicly. You saw liberal justice Selena Kagan over the summer saying that it's fair to question sort of legitimacy of the court when a change in personnel on the court leads to the overturning of long-standing precedent and Alito responded to that last night without naming justice Kagan, but he had a quote where he said that people cross an important line when they say the court is acting in a way that's illegitimate and he said, I don't think anybody in a position of authority should make those claims lately. So it's fine to criticize the rationale and legal reasoning in the decisions But not to sort of question the character and integrity of the court. So that was one telling comment from him. U.S. also asked about proposals to reform the size of the court. He said that's a question for Congress, but he clearly made comments that make it clear he thinks that an odd number is the right number and that it shouldn't be too big so that it becomes unwieldy and also suggested that changing the site of the court changing the size of the court because of unhappiness with the outcome in cases. But also lead to questions about legitimacy and public perception of independence. There are much more to these comments that justice Alito made recently. You can find out more online at Washington Post dot com from reporter Ann marrow. And that's northwest news radios Taylor van seiss.

Jennifer Horn and Mark Morgan Discuss the Southern Border

"Border is out of control and has been under the watch of the Biden administration. It's gotten so crazy that states have had to act themselves to try to fix the problem. And Arizona's governor Doug ducey tried to put up temporary barriers along the border. The Biden administration said that he had to remove them. And, well, he responded by filing a lawsuit against the Biden administration here to unpack all of that with us is Mark Morgan. He's a visiting fellow border security and immigration center for the heritage foundation joins us right now. Mark Morgan, welcome to America first. Jennifer, thanks for having me. Now, it is unbelievable because under president Trump and you were you worked under president Trump in his administration. Customs and border patrol. The border was at least by and large secured. We were actually maintaining a border. We had a stay in Mexico policy in place the Biden administration has wiped all of that out so much so that states like Texas have been shipping migrants to try to get some attention to the problem. There are already been 2 million people that they know about that have been encountered during the fiscal year of 2022 at the border. And now the governor of Arizona is trying to put up just temporary barriers to protect his state, especially in the Yuma sector, and the Biden administration says he can't do that. If we, if these states can't protect if the federal government can't protect them, then the states have to protect themselves and they shouldn't be getting this pushback from Biden. Yeah, Jennifer Zachary, right. First of all, I was proud to serve under president Trump as a commissioner on CBP. And this is what I always say is that we had the most secure border in our lifetime. And this administration came in and intentionally unsecured the border. Like you said, I can say that they dismounted the system, but yeah, I could provide you facts of what I mean by that one. They stopped the wall system construction. Two, as you said, they stopped the remain in Mexico program. Three, they stopped this sign on the cooperative agreements. We have with all three northern triangle countries, and they have restricted ice from doing their job by lawfully deporting people. And what has happened? Of course, we have the crisis. You said, this fiscal year, 2.7 million people on this fiscal year. If you include the God of ways under the first 21 months of this administration, over 5.5 million illegal aliens have either tried or successfully entered this border in

Charlie Pierce: The GOP Assault on the Vote Is Reaching Boiling Point

"By the way, you quote you quoted a guy at the Trump rally on why he loves Trump. The biblical principles that Trump embraces is what I really like about him. I've never heard another president invoke the name of God and Jesus as much. He's embracing biblical principles, follow the Bible, and you can't go wrong, and you just said a cult, moi. He's embracing he's embracing biblical principles and he'll probably have to like send them some hush money. And for a while. Yeah. Because that's what he does to anything he embraces, I think. And I thought this one thing you retreated was parody, but it is actually from the heritage foundation. It says the price of skittles jumped 42% from last year, not to mention the cartels are stuffing skittles bags with deadly fentanyl, happy Halloween from the Biden administration. Would you like to, you know, go ahead. I mean, maybe they are smuggling the stuff in that way. I mean, it's possible, I guess. But as you pointed out, over and over again, they're not going to give the product away. That way. Drug dealing does not work that way. No. Yeah. Charlotte, let's get to your because unfortunately we're short on time, but that's because that's because I'm a fool. That's all right. But to your piece, the GOP assault on the vote is about to come to a boil is what you were just referring to. You said it's all coming together in Arizona and the Supreme Court should be so very proud. The personal right to bear arms dovetails with the increased constitutionality of voter suppression, two sons from different mothers. Wow, you went pundit there for a moment. But as you were talking about these armed individuals with the tactical gear outside the drop boxes, and you said the national Republican Party is all in behind the notion that 2022 elections are already corrupt at parties de facto leader traffic in this poison should surprise approximately nobody. I mean, to your point, Charlie, what do we do about this? I know. I saw one grandma, you know, telling them off, which good for her, you know, I would just say don't be intimidated by them, right? I mean, that's the only in terms of what you can do individually. That's about it. Until you can elect a Congress that is sufficiently veto proof to give us a Voting Rights Act again. And somehow, you know, make it Supreme Court proof and I don't know how the hell you do that at this point. But yeah, I mean, you've got one of our two political parties with no respect for anything anymore. Yeah. None. I mean, top to bottom stem to stern from the U.S. Senate to school boards. You know, that's where we're at. And it's a situation that was created, deliberately. And now it's, you know, now it's Chernobyl. Yeah. It's running beyond control. Charlie, I don't know what the chances are of getting what we have in California across the country. But to me, this argues more and more, this violence against poll workers and intimidation to drop boxes for mail in voting to make just mail in make that the law of the land. I mean, it's what we have in California. It's roughly the same principle as to why they fought RU 44 86 so hard. Because you can have your sense of privacy and do what you need to do, and they can't come in like, you know, glue their heads to your door or whatever. Right. Or shoot your doctor in the head. Right. Yeah. No, exactly. By the way, my favorite headline of yours ever. Steve Bannon unlikely to feel the slap on the wrist through his many collared shirts. That's my man Vic brand down esquire headquarters. I'm not a headline guy. But I too appreciated that. Great deal. But does he wear long sleeved shirts or does he wear short sleeved shirts? I think they're long sleeve. Yeah. I think really because that would be horribly uncomfortable, I would think. Yeah. Yeah, you would think. Of course. You know, then again. Then again, he looks like gout got gout. It belongs in the Smithsonian. Once tried to say in The New York Times, you know, that's probably, you know, you sacrifice comfort a long time ago. Yeah. Well, why is he still able to do a show, by the way? I know. I know. Why isn't there a gag order on this guy? I know. Whatever happened to like cuffing people as soon as a sentence comes down and taking them to jail. Whatever happened to that. Well, I mean, it's releasing, I mean, for all we don't like the guy. He wasn't convicted of very much. Right, but he was still convicted of ignoring a congressional subpoena. Right. Which is a crime. Right. But that's a decision. Yes, if he was a 13 year old black kid in the sky. That's what I mean. Who makes the decision? I appreciate that. But so the judge makes the decision whether he gets to be free on bail or go to jail right away. I mean, the judge was the judge was plainly doing his trumpian duty there. He didn't find him practically, you know. Steve Bannon can raise $6500 in an afternoon. Yeah. So, you know, I didn't have any expectations that he was going to wind up in jail

Jim Hanson and Heritage's Mike Howell Discuss the Oversight Project

"Go ahead and keep kicking the deep state in the teeth because I'm joined now with my cowl who is the director of the oversight project at the heritage foundation. And Mike, I am 100% certain that if anybody needs some oversight, it is those people across the river from where I'm sitting right now in the permanent bureaucracy. So tell me what you guys got Tito. What's the oversight project about, man? Right. So the oversight project is a recognition that in the next two years, when conservative state, the house and probably the Senate, it's going to be all accountability oversight hearings and investigations. And now conservative institutions institutions historic have done a great job of white papers, policy development, but that's not what time it is right now. We know the institutions of the federal government have been captured. We know what's happening. We are already so downstream of all this stuff. We need to start kicking back a little bit. So we created what we call the oversight process. When it basically is, is the investigative arm of the heritage foundation and the conservative movement. We do a lot of foia litigation. I mean, we all know what boy is already sending me. I hope you get some back. None of that matters unless you sue. And so we're taking the big bad heritage foundation. Expertise we have, and turning it into a litigation army, all these foia requests. So every time you see kind of a congressional letter going out asking for information, they're not going to response, you know, the Biden administration is not voluntarily coughing up any information. So what we're doing is we're going to go in. We're suing strategically all over the place. Right now we have about 400 boys outweigh litigation ten different places. And we're already getting quite a bit of stuff. If you saw last week or, you know, I think it was the 12th actually of October. We got an email from mayorkas, the DHS head. The first press secretary told him right before he went up in The White House podium that there's no weapon in Del Rio. You remember when they accused them of work religions of women. And we saw this like this. This is ridiculous. Obviously there's no weapon. There's got to be some gold here. And so we went out and you know we sued him for all the communications. He had before he did that abomination of the press conference, throwing border patrol into the bus. And sure enough, he went up there and we found it. So what did he want to do anyways? And so, you know, we launched that a couple weeks ago. And now what do you have? You have basically the entire conference of Republicans in the House and Senate. Calling for his impeachment. I mean,

And I think it's appetite to play it because I do believe, is there not a Thatcher center at the heritage foundation. No, it's not 8th acid center. It's the only Thatcher center that she would allow. To be named after her so it's the Margaret Thatcher center for freedom. That's the only one in the world. And she actually provided the initial endowment.

401Ks Fall Under Biden's Watch

"Hat tip. Forgot man, the study shows how much average 401k is down under Biden.

A total of 2.1 trillion has been white from Americans 401k 401k plans, just since the beginning of this year. You guys remember the American rescue plan. $1.9 trillion. $2.1 trillion has been wiped out from your 401k plans. On freaking believable. This according to Stephen Moore and EG antoni, the average plan had a $135,000 in it on January 1, and that figure has plummeted to a $101,000. Now to the Biden administration and to Democrats, that might be, you know, that might be pittance for them. But for people like you and I, the average everyday working American, the blue collar worker, you're talking about a decrease of 34,000 bucks gone just like that. That hurts. That hurts.

Rep. Mary Miller: Dems Want to Destroy Our Country With Woke Policies

"The heritage foundation of this is from The Wall Street Journal today. They have an opinion piece up. The heritage foundation actually rated the U.S. Military as weak and at growing risk of not being able to meet the demands of defending America's vital national interest and this is it's down from marginal a year earlier is the first and the index is 9 year history. It looks as though there has been an effort congresswoman by the Biden administration to somehow weaken the United States military. And I think that's a very alarming thing. It is, but I think this is consistent with what we're seeing out of the Biden administration and the Democrats, all that has made America good. They are attacking and tearing apart. You know, they have some of them have come out and said they want to fundamentally transform our country, but in order to do that after tear us down first. And I believe it's an intentional destruction of all that made our country good and including our military that I know we have had a son and grandson that we've discouraged from joining the military because of the woke policies in particular and I believe it is really hurting recruitment they're pushing all this transgender things the green bad deal climate project and then now this vaccine mandate.

Jim Carafano Discusses His Recent Trip to Ukraine

"I am Sebastian gorka, this is America first with one of our regulars mister national security and foreign policy for the conservative mothership. It is, of course, the heritage foundation heritage and colonel Jim caravan of doctor carafano is freshly back from Ukraine, and he has so much to share with us. Don't you, Jim. So this is weird, you know, I was in the army for 25 years. I was never deployed to a combat zone once. And in the last two months, I've been in two combat zones, so you had two busy playing with those nuclear weapons. I care, right? I guess. So I had another group of experts working with a Polish think tank. So we went to Ukraine. You fly to the border, the Polish border. The Polish border take a train to ten hour train ride to Kyiv. So you and Boris Johnson, secret trainer. Yeah, yeah, everybody takes the secret train ride. It's a private train. It runs at night. The security is ridiculous. Everybody, WeChat our own SEAL Team 6 guy. I mean, it wasn't SEAL Team 6, but they look like social security. Yeah, they look like something out of the movie. And everywhere we had like this arsenal. And I was just like, I've pitied anybody that would come after us. But these were supplied by the Ukraine government. This was actually these were actually supplied by the Polish government. Wow. And so we went to bucha, which is the high water mark of the Russian incursion towards the capitol, which is stunning how close. Where there was basically genocide. Right. So the town horrible, terrible. I mean, one is how close they actually got to the capitol. The other is, is the destruction was just terrible. I mean, including obviously blowing up things that are not military targets in any way. We'll show some photographs and then of course this is a scene of one of the mass burial sites. And tragically on the day we left, they found it even bigger mass barrels. People bound tortured. Families bound together in the latest. Hundreds of people thrown into a hole in the ground. And no matter what you take away from this, no matter what side you're on, if you're a neocon or a restrainer or whatever and you want nobody can think that Putin is a global player. And the notion that you would just sit back on your hands and just let him run wild being the murderer and soulless godless killer that he is. And think that someday that wouldn't come after you. That's just nuts.

The Democrats' Inflation Reduction Act Isn't Reducing Anything

"What is really sort of floating the democratic vote here is not the polling data. It is the notion instead that somehow spending more money is going to fix this. So they are all hot and bothered. Very, very hot on the idea that this quote unquote inflation reduction act is going to fix all of their problems. So what exactly happened here? There's a giant Bill. We are talking about hundreds of billions of dollars in spending. Joe Manchin, who had been concerned about both deficits and inflation. He said that he was not going to sign on to build back better. But now he's signing on to this. So why exactly is he signing on to this inflation reduction act? And what exactly is the inflation reduction act in the first place? Well, first of all, it's another one of these misnamed acts. So Democrats come up with names for the acts that really have nothing to do with the content of the act. Build back better, had nothing to do with the actual infrastructure. Inflation reduction has nothing to do with actual inflation reduction. In fact, according to heritage and Matthew Dickerson, who's the director of the federal budget at the heritage foundation, he says after more than a year of expressing his concerns about the inflation of impact, the impact of inflation. Senator Manchin has signed off on a massive tax and spending bill that would only push prices for working families even higher. Biden's $1.9 trillion American rescue plan, a stimulus spending bill in March 2021 was the match that lit the inflationary fire. Well, now they're back for more. The so called inflation reduction act of 2022 only would add to the inflationary pain families are already feeling thanks to hundreds of billions in new government spending and job destroying tax hikes. The legislation's proponents argue that over the next year the bill is higher taxes would offset new spending. And it's true that recent massive federal deficits financed by the Federal Reserve and driven by excessive government spending have resulted in crippling inflation, but the inflation reduction act doubles down on the same bad fiscal policy that has caused inflation in the first place.

Economist Stephen Moore Joins Brandon to Discuss the Recession

"Like I promise you yesterday, I was going to bring on a person who's an expert who's smarter than me on these topics. One thing you guys are going to know about me is that I speak with common sense, I'm authentic, but I'm not the smartest person in the world. So I recruit smarter people to talk about certain subject matter, so we all become smarter together. So I'm going to bring in a gentleman who I think is amazing. Stephen Moore, he's a distinguished fellow in economics at the heritage foundation. He's also the founder of the committee to unleash prosperity. Steven, welcome to the off state of show. It is still fair to be with you. Thanks for having me. And I know great expert on this stuff. But you know what? You don't have to be an expert to understand what's going on with this economy right now. It's just a disgrace. Yes, yes, I think that most people will understand that it's a little bit of common sense sprinkled in with facts, and I think we'll understand, but I have a few questions for you, then I had is that are we in a recession? Well, the dictionary definition of a recession two quarters of negative growth. And unfortunately, we've had that and we confirm that yesterday. Now look, it's a mild recession. It's not we were slightly negative in the first quarter and slightly negative in the second quarter. But the biggest problem right now, I'm calling this a recession in people's personal income. In other words, what's going on right now is that the inflation rate is running at about 9 to 9 and a half percent. And wages are rising by about 5 to 5 and a half percent. So I think the math is pretty easy there, right? If you've got 5% wage growth in 9% inflation, you're following behind. And by my best estimates, the average family when you adjust for the inflation that's out of control has lost about 3000 to $5000 in income in just the last year. That's a lot of money. Let's say you got a family with a 60, $75,000 income. That's a big loss

The US Military Is Struggling to Meet Its 2022 Recruiting Goals

"Is one of our great successes as a nation, strongest military ever to exist in the history of the world. NBC News. Every branch of the military is struggling to make its 2022 recruiting calls, officials say. With record low number of Americans eligible to serve, and few of those willing to do it, it's quote, is this the year, the question of sustainability of the all volunteer force. I wonder why. These people. It's an intentional destruction of the U.S. Military. That's what they've been doing. Every branch of the U.S. Military is struggling to meet its fiscal year 2022 recruiting goals. The official said The Pentagon top leaders are now scrambling for ways to find new recruits to fill out the ranks of the all volunteer force, defense secretary Lloyd Austin and deputy secretary Kathleen hicks consider the shortfall is serious issue. Yeah, maybe you should have thought of that before you wanted to mandate an experimental gene therapy and kick out active duty personnel, which Republicans did nothing to oppose. This is a start of a long drought for military recruiting, said retired general Thomas spore of the heritage foundation. He said the military has had not such a hard time signing recruits since 1973. Quote, 2022 is the year we questioned the sustainability of the all volunteer force. Now that NBC News article continues and they say, oh, it's because of the psychological trauma quote they think they're going to be physically or emotionally broken after serving. That's not why. I'll tell you why it's happening. Two things. They don't want to take in a vaccine against their will, and they don't want to serve under this. Put that on screen. Rachel Levine and the new LGBTQIA+ regime in our military and also people want to enlist in a military that plays to win Afghanistan was a humiliation. From Lloyd Austin and Mark milley.

"heritage foundation" Discussed on America First with Sebastian Gorka Podcast

"TX. Kevin, okay, cold shower time. We've had our fun. Oh, man. I knew this was gonna happen. But you'll hear to make change that brings us back to those principles of conservativism that founded the republic that were the basis of our civilization. Let's be clear. The founding fathers were geniuses, but it wasn't a tabula rasa. It wasn't an empty sandbox. They arrived at. They brought their history from Europe. They brought the knowledge, the philosophy and the knowledge of the mistakes that had been done under different systems, feudal systems, royal systems, but the principles that they enshrined are ancient principles. Where is the fight right now at? Let's step back from this monumental celebration for a second. What are your focus foci, your foci at the heritage foundation in terms of the imminent battles we still have to fight. There's so many, but what have you decided for you and heritage are the biggest ones? I know you're an educator so there's got to be out there, but you tell us. Church, there are several. And of course, heritage is engaged in literally every policy issue. But I won't talk about them all, obviously. Number one, just as a transition from this Supreme Court case, it's really important we understand that the fight to secure a truly pro life country has just begun. What I mean by that, as you know, is that we now have to be active. We as a movement, we inherited have to be active in every state capitol where there isn't a so called trigger law for pro life legislation. For the first time in our 50 year history at heritage, we are involved in almost all the states to some degree or another. We're involved in a handful in a very significant way 15 to 20 on this issue and others. But the second point is, and it's related to winning the pro life issue is education. We need to tear out root and branch that is, we need to eliminate fully the U.S. Department of Education. That's our objective. It's long term. We want the next president of the United States to come into office. Whoever he or she is and say that's what I want to do. Ken, can you stop here for a second? Sure. And explain why it has been such a destructive force. What it's done to the cost of education, political correctness, why we have to get rid of this institution. Sure. I can say that as a 5th generation teacher as someone who's led both a K through 12 school and a college that what the U.S. Department of Education has done with its $100 trillion that we've spent on it since it was created in 1979 is sort of like what we've done with healthcare where there's an intermediary between doctor and patient. The U.S. Department of Education has become the intermediary between parent or between teacher and student. And what that means is that the money that's being spent isn't being spent on the classrooms. I mean, are the students? I mean, something like 30 cents of federal dollars, which of course is our money, goes to the student, goes to the classroom. And so on the higher Ed level, it's directly led to tuition going up. So if someone is a parent of a college student listening to this, they want to know the origins of this tuition problem with colleges, it's the U.S. Department of Education. And of course, just to sum up this particular point, Seb, it's the U.S. Department of Education that's been advocating for this diversity equity inclusion nonsense and using our money against us. I mean, think about justice Thomas's comment about north always being north. The U.S. Department of Education doesn't believe that. Our own money against it. Because that's an oppressive thing. Two plus two equals four is colonial oppression. Yes,.

"This is a very special interview. Why? Because I get to share with you my love of my life and to talk about the incredible work she's been doing, not only in the administration as a presidential point to the problem of Homeland Security, then the press secretary for customs and border protection where you worked with Mark Morgan, who's a huge supporter of the show. And then now, as senior fellow at the heritage foundation for civil society, but let's begin at the beginning. I've known you for quite some time. Yes, you have. And we met in Eastern Europe in Romania. I was working for the Hungarian government defense ministry after the fall of communism. You were working for a New York think tank helping in the democratization process in Central Europe. Share a little bit about your journey because when I met you, allegedly, there were only two charities you gave to. And 8 charity and a gun control chat. And gay men's health crisis. Gay men's health crisis and gun control ink. And I think your life has changed somewhat in the last 26 years. Yes, it has. Why? Talk to us your journey and how you look at this nation we live in now. Well, I think the important thing is that so many young people who got a terrible education overall, I did not understand this country at all. I did not love this country. I would not say I was a patriot. I remember growing up in a part of Long Island. I remember maybe when I was about 6, a 4th of July parade with the streamers woven through my bike spokes and the good humor ice cream and that's kind of the last act of patriotism. I remember, because you go to school, I mean granted, this was a while ago, but let's say this would have been, you know, I was growing up in the 70s. It was not a great time to be an American.

We Have No Long-Term Data on Cross-Hormone Therapy With Dr. Jay Greene

"Let's actually talk about the reality author of this seminal work from the heritage foundation on puberty blockers cross sex hormones and youth suicide. He's a senior research fellow at Jay green Jay. Two observations if I make number one, it is shocking that any new medical procedure doesn't become commonplace or applied in large numbers. Unless there have been years, if not decades of trials of tests of small batch, Guinea pigs, if you will, we have none of that. Am I right in saying we have no long-term data on the consequences of cross hormone therapy or chemical castration on children, do we? We don't. I mean, this use of these drugs is an off label use of drugs that were approved by the FDA for other purposes long time ago. Right. And so there's never been a random assignment experiment that would be necessary for FDA approval for this use of these drugs. So we have no rigorous science to prove that these drugs are in fact safe and effective for this use. And we also have no long-term evidence of any kind because this use of these drugs is incredibly novel. It didn't really exist in the United States before 2000.

Biden Administration Cancels $5.8 Billion in Student Loan Debt

"Ladies and gentlemen, you're listening to my guests, Adam kissel, visitor, visiting fellow on higher education reform at the heritage foundation. We're here to discuss the debt forgiveness that Joe Biden has done for the Corinthian colleges. And I was reading in an article with the Corinthian college became one of the most prominent examples of bad behavior. One of the things that they said allegedly are allegations of illegal recruiting tactics, shady education programs and false promises to students about their career prospects and their potential future earnings. Is this a conflict of interest specifically that Joe Biden is forgiving the debt and loans from a university that appears to have been participating in alleged fraudulent behavior and really they've done these kids wrong in many cases. It's Joe Biden putting himself in danger of a conflict of interest here. Well, the Biden administration, just like the Obama administration, has a problem with profit. So they've been going after for profit universities. And not holding nonprofits to the same standards. And in many cases, if you look at the outcomes for nonprofit college student graduates, they're just as bad or worse than as the for profit colleges. Colleague of mine at the Texas public policy foundation has proved that in a number of studies. So the conflict for Biden and earlier for Obama was discriminating against profit and the challenge for Corinthian colleges, which no longer exists, is that they did double cross many of their students and give bad information. So those students should be made whole. And the hard question is, should they be made whole by having their whole student debt forgiven for just the part that really was related to fraudulent? Or other bad actor kinds of activities.

"We're back to Jimbo had a show with heritage foundation vice president of foreign and defense policy studies Jim Carrera and Brandon in Longview Texas good evening Yes thanks for taking my call I just want to bring your attention There was a film expose called mister Jones and it talks about how the west overlooked atrocities done by Russia in the 1930s against the Ukrainians basically they took banned privatization of agriculture and were trying to I guess take away resources from agriculture and attempted more become more industrialized And up to 4 million Ukrainians died over several years in the western press and liberal political figures who are sympathetic to Stalin and communism just overlooked it Probably not probably similar to the atrocities done by Mao who was known as a great leap forward and he started about 40 million of his people following pretty much the same misguided programs that were done by the Soviets I thought surgeon you know ironic too because after World War I the United States led probably the largest humanitarian effort in history to help feed Ukrainians and Russians as it was unbelievable expression of American generosity Look I think you're right I think you're exactly right Your things like that and look to the follow onto those things which are never good So today we're sitting here Russia is getting ready to march in Ukraine and China is getting ready to host the Olympics in the midst of an ongoing genocide against the million people who are in prison sterilized have forced abortions and are enslaved labor and torture It sounds like we're living in the 19 in the 1930s Yes I can't believe people are channeling their inner Neville Chamberlain but apparently that seems to be an ongoing problem I just am in Manchester New Hampshire hello Hi Jim Thank you for taking my call And mister thank you so much for taking the time to come on the show I wanted to ask a few gentlemen I know this would be one of the worst case scenarios but I think it's a possibility What do both these gentlemen think with or think which countries would have the courage to stand with us if the Chinese government decides to invade Taiwan and the Russian government decides to be Ukraine at the exact same time which countries do you think would stand with us against them Well we come to the issue of course here of territorial agreements that when Ukraine the modern Ukraine was created out of the remnants of the Soviet Union four nation states guaranteed its territorial integrity 31 years ago That would be the U.S. Britain Russia and Ukraine itself and obviously that hasn't been held up in terms of Taiwan I'm not sure what our relationship is with Taiwan It's not a I don't think a formal treaty as such but I'm sure Jim carrano has a better handle on that than I do But we come down on issue I mean sort of the Ukraine is not a member of NATO although at the Russians didn't invade the remnants of Ukraine would probably join NATO in an instant but I'm not sure where legally we really stand in regard to those countries Well I mean let's talk about the more fundamental issues what would you do if a Russians or the Chinese come after us at the same time which people can say well that's fanciful but that's exactly what happens in World War II I would say is I think it's remarkable putting this administration aside The depth of confidence and value people put in the United States And I think when the moment of crisis comes I think you'd be shocked at the countries that would stand shoulder to shoulder with us because they believe in America and they believe that we are the last hope for freedom in the world But this gets to a kind of a deeper point for me which is for many years really since a lot of became president I was one of the ones that said look we used to have this thing called to the capability to fight two major regional contingency In other words the capability to fight two wars at once The argument for that was because you know what will happen if you get a 101 more the other guy will take advantage of it he'll start another one And so you're actually only having a capability of one you're actually maybe encouraging two wars right And so this is a fundamental argument about how much defense do we need and everybody we don't need that That's ridiculous but Cold War over at the end of history The America fight being threatened by two enemies at once that's nonsense And so what we've done is we've pulled the military away all through the Obama years Trump came back he built some of it back and then Biden immediately walked in He wants to do the same thing just kind of whittle things away again And now here we are face potentially the two enemies And they're all like oh we got to throw up our hands Oh my God we don't have the capacity to fight two wars at once We just need to give up Yeah Yahoo Well first of all it's a terrible idea Let's just give up But this is exactly if we had a military that was strong enough to deter our two fronts We wouldn't be sitting here worried about the Ukraine and Taiwan today All right Here's a call from Tom and Los gatos California good evening Great show Yeah first of a little clarification please Jim Carrey I just said that basically the Russians and the Chinese.

"That's what we have to be focused on, whether or not he runs. Perfectly put. Let's talk about the other side of the aisle as this son of those who were persecuted under communist dictatorship, my father having been tortured in prison by the communists and then liberated from a political prison. For many years as an immigrant when Americans who were born here said, you know the Democrats the other side, they're socialists, so they're communists. I used to get pissed. I used to get pissed off and I said, really, can I talk to you about communism? Can I talk to you about the scars on my dad's body from the torturers from the secret police? If I may, Kevin, I don't do that anymore. This is real socialism. It is. What do you think? I agree. I used to say that when I was a history professor and you know it makes the audience of students and I want to be respectful as a professor even as a conservative one of the opposing views. So I'm not trying to call anybody out. Everyone's getting a fair shake. But to your point, I used to go out of my way to say, ah, we want to be careful about calling leftist socialists because it's not really true and I give this seemingly brilliant academic response, right? Well, real life, especially in the last ten years, especially last two, has proven to me that's not the way to go. And therefore, I mean it when I say it, it's not hyperbole, that radical American leftists are as steeped in socialism, unfortunately, as the socialism, your family endured. Yeah. God bless you for being a little bit Trump in if I may. I don't want to get anybody, I don't get you in trouble. You call me Trump, and I'll take it, brother. Wow, did you hear that? The president of the heritage foundation says, I'll take it brother. Why? Because for me, it's not about the personalities. It's not about the accent. It's not about the tweets. It's about common sense as an American now, I think it is one of the vital common characteristics of Americans, it's common sense, and if you see something as bust, you've got to fix it.

"To say Americans are stranded. They are not. We are committed to bringing Americans who want to come home home. We are in touch with them via phone via text via email via anyway that we can possibly reach Americans to get them home if they want to return home. White House press secretary Jim sake, who is obviously rather emphatically contradicting some evidence to the contrary, there have been reports that it's been in fact quite difficult. Indeed, may be dangerous for Americans to get to that airport. So the next question is that the Americans can't get to the airport. Then how do we get the Americans to the airport? And that will be the next subject for Jim Carafano, vice president of foreign and defence policy studies at the Heritage Foundation. Now let's assume for the moment that the Taliban is actually That self destructive and they want to get in the way of Americans leaving which is to me. Incredible. Sure, I know they want to humiliate the great Satan and all that, but, uh Uh, it would be smarter than just to say Hey, go right ahead. Uh, you want to take this road and that road Feel free. I mean, I don't get it. Are they that illogical, Jim? Well, it's not illogical because while the West is dependent on the Taliban for the back of the Kabul airport, because remember there's only one airport there's only 11 way. The Taliban and shut this down whenever they want. While that's ongoing, The West is just going to bite his tongue and say nothing or do nothing. That's how that Because because then they were told all those people hostage. So so every day that the that continues, it actually gives the Taliban time to consolidate their control over the country, so the strategic reason to drag this out It's a benefit to them actually in the United States as they're making money out of this because there people have to bribe Brian and pay ransom and stuff to get to the airport. Um, look, the press secretary statement was double speak. She could say Well, people aren't stranded because if the airport we will fly them out, so technically they're not stranded. But the problem is getting to the airport and it is very dangerous. Today. I talked to three different people who are all working with group. Trying to get people to the airport, who total several 100. Their problem is, it's unsafe to go to the airport. So, um Make saying, Hey, you know Yeah.

We have pulled our troops out if we knew that the Afghan army was not prepared to defend themselves to them, assuming that's why we're over to. They were there for 20 years to train them. And when he knew they were gonna jump ship in 11 days, and, uh What was what is the top brass have to say about that? That's a very interesting point over there. That's an interesting point. Of course, that assumes that In fact, when we pulled out we knew that the Afghan army was going to fail. I would have to think Jim Carrey thought of that Everybody knew there was a possibility that they would fail. I don't think anybody thought they would fail in 11 days. I think that was the single possibility. But what's key is why we all assume that the Afghan military might well fail. And it wasn't because it was a military defeat because it wasn't In many places. The Taliban just walked in and took over. It. In many cases, the military were told not to fight. This is a political defeat. Big because what was holding the Taliban at bay. Um, was not the Afghan military American military. We're fighting. I mean, they've been fighting for 20 years. They took over 70,000 casualties. They could fight this one. And they then they did fight. Yeah. So why did they suddenly just fold like a like a Why did they suddenly just go away for the same reason Germany surrendered during what were because it was a political defeat because the political leader said we're not fighting anymore, And the reason for that, is it. When? When the American look 25 heart could not hold that country. But we have 2500 troops there for for over a year, and nothing happened. Well, why was that? Because the Taliban stupid Americans and the Taliban military at the time of political leaders. Is as long as there is an American presence there. The Taliban would never dare try to invade the country and and and when the Americans left, people said, Look, the Americans are gone. Uh, you know, we have to protect our tribe, our family and and we're going to switch sides. Uh, you know, the cow we don't want to put the Taliban is, you know we're gonna We're gonna try our luck. And so the political leaders They switch sides just that simple. But this is this is why this was completely unnecessary. The look people cookers will trump started negotiating with the Taliban was a big deal Trump is done did not give the country over to the Taliban, and he made it very clear that he would not give the trend. Country over the Taliban that the process that they were working on is the Taliban would essentially have to agree to allow the the Afghan military to hold territory and politically integrate. And and, um And that Biden just came in and said, Well, relieve him. Uh, 2500 with sufficient force to deter the Taliban for really trying serious invasion and give political backbone to the Afghans. Trump had proved that If the Taliban would never negotiate in good faith, we could have left those 25 troops there forever and the status quo that maintained 2500 troops. They hadn't taken a casualty year and a half. We were spending less. In a year than we that we used to spend And people can say Well, you know? That was that was too high. A price of it Well, we sent more troops than to to attack. We lost hundreds of millions of dollars of equipment and at the end evacuating Afghanistan. Will turn out to be an infinitely more expensive They're just standing there and deterring the Taliban. 18665, Jimbo, Let's go to Michael in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Good evening. Good evening, Jim. Good evening, and Mr Cara panel, um Some guests on the begin. Bohannon show in recent days have put the figure of loss that $80 billion of, uh, military equipment documents so forth now, uh The the other side of this story that seems nobody in the radio is willing to talk about is the compromise. With Joe Biden and the Chinese communists through his son, which makes us suspicious. That he deliberately abandoned that to save his son..

J and City leaders will roll out the proposed Austin budget this afternoon. Identifying any specific dollar amount at this point is still just speculation. But a lot of people to expect the new budget will be more than the current $4.2 billion. Lot of interest, of course, will be on how much the city plans to pump into homelessness and policing as well as what the tax impact maybe considering the hardships taxpayers have face during the pandemic. There was early speculation counsel may seek to raise property taxes by full 8%. But recently there's been some of the council has spoken against that today will be the first draft of the budget. The council will vote on a final draft next month. It is 5 34. Now take a look at the roadways and Austin's on time traffic.

"In jail. At the most we present, but that's happening, so we'll bring you updates on that story and the whole lot more. We've got Josh crasher joining us coming up at 4 30. We'll talk about politics with him and then five o'clock. John Cooper joins us from the Heritage Foundation to discuss what's going on in the United States. Military As an associate professor at the Air Force Academy, is saying that the service academies should be teaching critical race theory. He did, he said that out loud. It wasn't a secret opinion he wrote in The Washington Post. John Cooper is going to react to that. Coming up at five o'clock. He's an air force vet himself. Uh, Joining us right now, though, is Charles Fain Lehman, a fellow at the Manhattan Institute who works on primarily on the policing and public safety initiative. And he's contributing editor of City Journal as well, Charles. Great to talk to you, sir. Yeah, Absolutely. Thanks for having me on were you know here on our program and here at W. M A l. We've been very concerned about, um, the invasion of critical race theory into schools in our area and around the country, and what parents can do to both identify it and confront it and to make sure that that their students are given a holistic education, not one that's distorted by political ideologies. And I understand that the Manhattan Institute has as a tool kit to help parents do that. Tell us about that. Yeah, absolutely. And the first thing, I'll say is that your listeners can check it out on our website, which is Manhattan Dash institute dot org. And, you know, the Toolkit was really designed as sort of a guide for concerned parents, and so it offers some context to what's going on right now. It also coffers what we like to think of it sort of a lexicon or a glossary where it runs through commonly used terms that you may have heard but find confusing terms like white supremacy or equity, um and really tries to find them in the language of of academics who work on this issue. Uh huh. And then the third section is, you know, sort of first steps, her parents thinking about pushing back talking through what strategies they can use what's been successful for others? You know the first piece of ice that I was your parents is, if they want to be successful to have to find other parents, that's that's really the first step that they need to take. Yes. So when you are speaking to a parent or or somebody who's trying to figure out Okay is my kid's school system being invaded by this ideology. What are the kinds of things that people should look out for? Yeah, absolutely. You know, I I I I think I look first and foremost for the the use of certain popular terms. If your kids come home from school, and they're talking about, uh, it's a racism education to talk about equity they're talking about, Uh, what supremacy they're talking about. Work, spotty brown candy, Or rather, the Angelo. Uh, those social, emotional learning. Those are all sort of popular buzzwords. Um, also practices you see, pop up. If your if your kid has been sorted into an affinity group by race, um if they're you know if they're if they're being sort of Formerly segregated from the name of racial equality. That's that's a pretty big red flag. Uh, but I think you know, I think I think more generally the theme that the thing that parents are concerned with is among other things, Schools overstepping their bounds and trying to teach a particular it might be radical set of values to their kids, their parents consent. So, you know, try to keep an eye on just what What are your kids talking about? In class? What sort of ideas of their teachers trying to push on them over and above the nut? Let's this just to apart right? So, in other words like you kind of like talking. It's almost like the Supreme Court definition of pornography right that you know it When you see it. It's like it's like you've got this situation where if the kids are being formally segregated in the classroom? Then that might be a sign that things may have gone a little too far. Yeah, you know, I think I think that's right. But then you know, I think I think that there are there accused that you can look for but at the end of the day, you know when you see it, Yes. Now there's you know, let me let me just straw man this for a moment because the left is responding by saying what parents are trying to stop is an education about racism and slavery and Jim Crow. What's the answer to that? Yeah, I mean, no, I don't think that's right at all. Nobody. Nobody who is a proponent who's a critic of this stuff, things that we shouldn't teach about America's history of racism. Nobody thinks we should talk about. Slavery or Jim Crow. The Texas State goal that ban CRT are claimed spans here. T includes specific language, a language compelling the teaching of history of white supremacy and quote Why it's wrong, unquote. So certainly, you know, everyone's ever interested in learning real factual history and the idea that a comprehensive sociological theory uh, an account of how racism is the determinative factor in American life in the 21st century. Uh, like like that, that you know that that is the concept that we're objecting to. That is the thing that concerns us being taught in our classrooms. And this argument about like, you know, it's it's just about teaching honest. History is very clearly It's a lie a lie that is being hit behind to obscure. Uh what the real goal is. So you know, we've also got, um The left seems to be kind of on his heels right now and doesn't actually know what what to do to salvage this because this week the big story was the teachers unions who have come out. And basically said in their own way, Yes, there is a critical race theory being taught in schools and yes, it should continue. Randi Weingarten amazingly, came out yesterday morning and said No, it's not being taught in schools, despite the fact that the Anna said that the AFP's leader says no, it's not being taught in schools. But if you look at The social media accounts of the American Federation of Teachers. Over the last month, they've been proudly endorsing and supporting critical race theory..
