What Happens Now With Roe v Wade? Ken Klukowski Weighs In
"We are back with Ken kowalski, a man who we rely upon for our legal advice here in America first. We're talking about the Supreme Court decision. What happens now? I've heard a lot of theories that the left screwed up here. They sort of wait until June and then the nuclear bomb effect of this dropping in June, closer to the elections would have been more useful to them. I've heard theories today that now nobody can back down the 5 justices can not back down because then it would make them look as if they were weak and gave into the mob. You've been watching the Supreme Court for years now. This is truly unprecedented in the modern age. So what kind of scenarios are we looking at until June and the official vote? Well, for one thing, Seb, I'll be putting an article up today, urging the justices to get the opinion out as quickly as possible. I mean, the draft that we saw was from February 10 that they would have continued to polish it and edit it since that time. So I think the opinion could be could be in good condition to actually be issued as is right now as in like this week. Now if there are other justices who are still writing concurring opinions or dissenting opinions, none of those have the force of law and they can just issue that whenever they're ready to do so. But the justices in the majority have the authority whenever they vote to do it, to just go ahead and release the opinion. And I would recommend doing so as quickly as possible. So that we can all move forward. So this is an official opinion. It's on the clock. It's in the books. And let me segue straight from that to another point you mentioned. And that is that, yes, I believe that every day, every additional day that transpires. Between this decision becoming official in November's election day is that tens of millions of Americans are going to realize that the left has lied to them for half a century about what the effect of overruling road would
Sebastian Chats With Ken Klukowski About the Impending Roe Decision
"We have somebody who I trust for legal advice who's worked in the Trump administration at the DoJ practicing lawyer breitbart contributor, you've got to read his latest pieces at breitbart dot com. His can clockhouse can. Welcome back to America first. Great to be with you. Thanks for having me. All right, I'm going to just say what I think about the Supreme Court draft decision. Because I'm not a lawyer, but I read all 70 pages recently. And you know what shocked me and maybe I should read more of these documents, it was a fabulous historic tour de rizon. It was a treatise. It wasn't full of mumbo jumbo that a layman couldn't understand. First it was this amazing historic review of how the law treated abortion in western civilization going back to the 17th century in the UK, the concept of quickening. And then basically this conclusion that until roe V wade, it was illegal in America, and then it was a segment by segment dismantling of both roe and Casey saying it's just bad law and analyzing started decisis in other concepts. So Ken, give me your illegal professional opinion, is this an unusually good pre decisional draft, or is this because it's a Leto who's riding it? Well, first of all, justice alita was a brilliant justice. His opinions are uniformly wonderful. But what you just described in as I read it as well, it reminds me of the late justice Scalia's opinion in District of Columbia versus hello. Yeah. Which held that the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms is an individual right from 2008. That opinion was also almost exactly the same page length. That was a little over 60 pages. And what you saw there is what a well written Supreme Court opinion is supposed to look like. This is an original list decision. One that looks to the text, structure, and history of the constitution, and in this case, in terms of looking at the history of a purported right to abortion, showing why. This is in fact not a right found in the U.S.
The Plot to Subvert the Western Judeo-Christian Tradition of the US
"Folks, welcome back. We're talking to the authors of battle for the American mind uprooting a century of miseducation, Pete hegseth and David Goodwin. So we're talking about what amounts to a conspiracy to subvert the western judeo Christian tradition baked into the heart of the United States of America. And there's no denying it. People like Dewey, they were on a crusade, and they have up till now, succeeded. Yes, they have. And you know what? They didn't know what the destination would be, per se. They just knew where the destination was away from. So it was always progress away from the western Christian paideia, the biblical roots of our and free thinking roots of the nexus of Athens and Jerusalem. They wanted to move away from that. That was progress. So you say conspiracy, that's not a wrong term. We use plot or heist because they passed it off to the next group of radical thinkers who carried the ball down the field based on how much God and other basic values have been stripped away. So enter the Frankfurt school, enter critical theory, which where did it land? A hundred blocks from here at Columbia University at the teacher's college. And these are marxists who fled Hitler while our boys are fighting over in Europe and World War II. And they are greeted with open arms with their radical views soon to infuse into the teacher's college. And within a couple of decades, one third of teachers in America at elite schools had been taught by the critical theorists of the Frankfurt school. So how do you get critical race theory in your zoom classroom? It is in the curriculum and the pedagogy of how the entire educational industrial complex works. And when you unravel it all, it goes back to those early efforts and each step which we lay out the unions, which used to be conservative teacher associations that ended up scripture to teachers to use in the classroom, captured by the unions. Well, then the unions create the Department of Education in a giveaway to Jimmy
How Fox's Pete Hegseth Got Involved With 'Battle for the American Mind'
"Hey, welcome back folks. We're talking about American education, battle for the American mind, is the book uprooting a century of miseducation, David Goodwin has written it with Pete hegseth in that David. You're the head of the association of classical Christian schools. So you're like a brainy guy. Pete is just like a talking hit on Fox and Friends. We know he has nothing to say if it's not on a teleprompter. Pete, how did you get involved in this? I've always learned to join forces with people smarter than me. That's the key. Andy's humble, which makes me hate him even more. You went to Princeton, you went to the Harvard Kennedy school of government. What did you major in at Princeton? Politics. You did. I did. Political philosophy. As sort of a degree of that. But I'll tell you what I've learned in this project, how much I didn't learn. I didn't learn any of this stuff. My kids are in classical Christian schools and all I say every day is, why can't I go back to school and learn these things? Okay, you're singing my song. I have said this over and over in the last couple of decades. I learned something. I wrote a book called if you can keep it Franklin's famous line. And because of Oz Guinness, whose book I had read, I understood things, and all I could think of is how did I not get this? I didn't get any of this. So you obviously going through this elite schools, which like, Yale, they don't teach you this stuff. They teach you John Dewey on steroids, I guess. And they teach you now the latest manifestations of the Frankfurt school and critical theory, which is now we now see as critical race theory, and we talk about every day. But it was just the water in which we swam. I took social studies. We all took social studies who invented social studies. Yeah, why is it not history? Why is it social studies? We can't get into that. We can't get into that, don't talk about it. I didn't know where that all came from. David had done the research and then I was able to lay it upon the environment in which we live right now and realize we all got a progressive education. Yeah. Almost everyone watching guaranteed. Right. Got a progressive education that was started by atheist advanced by marxists who had their own agenda and it all happened subtly, and a lot of us think we aren't infected, but we are. And so you have to dig under the ruins of what used to exist. And that's what David did in this project. This is the way education our founders were educated, how free people and republics actually perpetuate themselves. Why don't we do
When Did Public Ed. Go Crazy? Pete Hegseth and David Goodwin Explain
"In America, we're free. So we say, we're going to educate our kids. We're going to have a one room schoolhouse. I've got to plow the fields. My wife's got stuff to do. So we're going to hire a school teacher and we're going to get them to teach the kids in the neighborhood. And they're going to teach exactly what we want them to teach obviously. They're the experts, but we're not going to let them teach things that we think are wrong. And that's how we got public education quote unquote. When did that go crazy and wrong? Well, certainly you mentioned some of the star players, John Dewey, early part of the 20th century. That was the epiphany I had is I researched the book originally, was that this doesn't date back to the 1960s, which most of us think. That's when you see the manifestation of it. It dates to an earlier time, right? Between 1915 and 1930, when the progressives actually built the school system that we now know in America. Okay, and that is true of everything. Now, there's not just education. Like, we think, oh, the 60s. Well, the 60s is when it bore fruit, but you can trace all of these things back. Most of the things that we know are wrong, which end up being anti American and cultural Marxism. They did begin originally in that time, whether you're talking about progressivism in the Protestant churches or whatever. All of this stuff, the seeds were planted then by some key
Why Pete Hegseth and David Goodwin Decided to Write a Book Together
"Folks, I am really excited right now because we're talking about something in this hour and I hope in the next hour as well that's at the heart of my concerns for the nation for the culture for the world. Something called education. I have in front of me, a brand new book called battle for the American mind, uprooting a century of miseducation, the authors are in the studio Pete hegseth and David Goodwin welcome. Thank you, Eric. Now I know both of you sort of because but from different worlds, you're mister Fox and Friends on the weekends or my confusing you with another Pete hegseth. No, you're right, you're right. And we met in multiple iterations. Here and there. But the problem is when you see somebody on TV, you don't remember, did I actually meet them or did I just saw that see them on YouTube or something like that? But David Goodwin, you are the head of the association of classical Christian schools. Yes. Devotee and fan of classical Christian education and of homeschooling and I am thrilled to see you again. And thank you for writing a book because we need to talk about this. So where do we start? First of all, I think most people want to know, hey, how did Pete hegseth meet David Goodwin? How did you come to write a book together? Well, I met David Goodwin. You mentioned Fox and Friends. It happenstance to that. I was at a diner in rural North Carolina talking about the news of the day as we do on the morning show. And a family approached me too cute little girls in uniforms and a woman pulled me aside and said, you know, what do you know about classical Christian education? Because we were talking about it. And we got to talk in and she said, you got to meet this guy, David Goodwin, and she put us in touch. And I had kids that had been in classical questions, so I was familiar with it, but I didn't understand the larger movement. And we just got to know each other and he shared some early manuscripts that he was working on of research that he had done. And I kept reading it and saying, this is amazing. Everybody's got to know this. This is the key right here. And over months and then years, we kind of joined forces and swap notes, and then we decided to embark on a Fox nation film called miseducation of America, which is where, and then this book also came out of that project as well. So it is a genuine partnership
Marjorie Taylor Greene and Dinesh Discuss the SCOTUS Leak
"You mentioned at the end of the last segment this remarkable, well, the leaking of a forthcoming Supreme Court decision, but a decision to overturn roe versus wade. I have to say that this is, you know, to me, the leak is a little bit secondary. Obviously I think it probably came from the left. They were trying to maybe motivate some activists to put pressure on the court. It doesn't seem to have worked. And I think the big news is that this giant catastrophe of a decision roe V wade, which has been standing for half a century, this big tower of madness has finally going to be pulled down. It is so exciting to think about it. You know, I cried when I first heard the news. I just, it was so overwhelming. The emotion to think that roe versus wade could be overturned and it's always been wrong. That was a decision that was wrong when it happened, and it's been wrong for 49 years. So I'm very excited. I know many people all over the country are very excited. And sending this back to the states is the right place to put it, where states can begin to make their own abortion laws and many already have. Me personally, I would love to see abortion end altogether. I would love to see Congress pass the life at conception act because I truly believe life starts at conception. But yes, what we have seen with the leak coming out of the Supreme Court is shocking. This is an investigation that must be done when Republicans take back the house. We can not allow our Supreme Court to be under attack like this. And just as we were talking a few minutes ago, dinesh, our courts are under attack. The left wants nothing more than to pack the Supreme Court. They want to elect elect radical progressive judges all over the country in all levels of the courtrooms because they know that's where they can ultimately
Biden's Two Reasons Why We're Suffering: COVID & Putin
"COVID and Putin, COVID and Putin. Here's Biden yesterday. The two reasons that we are suffering from epic, historic inflation. The two reasons you can't afford to fill up your gas tank. The two reasons you can't get baby formula moms, the two reason two reasons you're worried about how to pay the mortgage, or the rent. The two boogeymen for grandpa Joe are COVID and Putin. The first cause of inflation is a once in a century pandemic. Not only did it shut down our global economy, and through the supply chains and demand completely out of whack. Especially in countries where more effective recovery responses weren't available. Especially in those sectors that rely on semiconductors. These supply challenges have been further hampered by the onset of Delta and omicron viruses. And you've all seen it. You all felt it. And this year we have a second cause. A second cause. Mister Putin's war in Ukraine. I mean, is anybody buying that? Do Democrats sit around and say, oh, he's right. Oh, he's so right. If it weren't for the omicron variant, we'd be able to fill up our gas tank. It's all, I mean, they can't think we're that stupid. Can they?
How Would AG Garland React to Protests Against Justices if He Was One?
"Remember who is nominated to be an associate justice of the Supreme Court America If he had gotten that position would he appreciate the fact that the attorney general of the United States doesn't lift in arthritic finger To defend the justices then Now of course conservatives those who are pro life they're not even today marching on the homes Of the pro abortion justices They weren't marching on the homes of the pro abortion justices for the last half century Nobody's bringing this up David marched on the homes of Supreme Court Justices Who supported roe V wade and Casey Not once
There's a Sense of Deep Frustration on the Left...
"Sense of deep, frustration that is growing on the left. I think many of those guys thought, listen, we might lose things at the midterms, but in the meantime, we've got the house. We've got the Senate. We've got the presidency. We're going to be able to ram through a whole bunch of stuff. And not only has all that failed. No build back better or no second infrastructure Bill. No attempt to no successful attempt to overturn the filibuster. Ideas of packing the court pretty much down in flames. And so then the left was like, well, okay, but at least we're going to be able to hold the line and then boom. The leak, the dismaying information for them that roe versus wade is going to go down. I mean, this is huge. The implications of this are far reaching. We're talking about something that is overturning a decision that has sat as a kind of anchor of American cultural policy for, well, half a century. So this is the same significance as overturning segregation, which lasted a little more than half a century. And I think that the left realizes that not much is going to be, they can't stop this.

Josh Hammer on This Week's Unprecedented Events Surrounding SCOTUS
"I have the privilege now of welcoming the next guest to the show. Josh hammer, the opinion editor for newsweek, Josh, welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Andrew, good to see you, my Friends. Always a pleasure. I likewise, likewise. You are, in my opinion, one of the most prescient legal minds on the conservative side. I think you're very fair. I think you try and play it very fair, but you write extensively about the constitution, you are very well versed on the Supreme Court. Obviously you're the opinion editor at newsweek, so you have a very powerful platform. From a legal mind such as yours, looking at what's been going on over the past week and really accelerated over the last couple of days over the weekend, trying to paint a picture for the audience listening just how unprecedented this is and just how truly radical it is in your estimation. Yeah, no, Andrew, there's so much to unpack here, obviously. But before we get into the constitution and the Dobbs case and all of that, just any pro life perspective, someone who personally, you know, I cofounded law students for life, the pro life student group back when I was in law school at the University of Chicago. I have marched in sub zero temperatures in Chicago, back when I was in law school there on four life, it is really, really, really terrible that the culmination of now a half century of pro life efforts to speak on behalf of unborn children for the sacredness of all innocent human life has now been sullied by this unprecedented and really just disgusting alinsky eyed at all cost tactics that we are now seeing. And, you know, it's easy to call things unprecedented, but in this particular case, Andrew, they're literally is zero precedent for what we are seeing right now. This kind of thing simply does not happen. The Supreme Court literally can only get by when the justice is the clerks know that their emails are not going to be leaked because if the entire notion of a government of laws and not of men to kind of borrow the famous quip from John Adams back from the 1780s, if that phrase means anything at all, it means that the judicial branch and the Supreme Court in particular can not possibly be swayed or cowed by public mob
Is Overturning Roe v Wade a Radical or Conservative Choice?
"This is Tina. Tina says, quote, Charlie, I read a column of one of my conservative Friends shared on Twitter. That was written by someone on the right apparently said overturning roe versus wade wasn't conservative. Okay, so this is a column by Brett Stevens, who used to be a really smart person and he's just become almost unreadable in recent years. And this Brett Stevens now writes for The New York Times. And Brett Stevens wrote this for The New York Times. Overturning roe is a radical, not conservative choice. Now he calls himself a conservative, he's just about the same type of conservative as Bill kristol. That should tell you everything you need to know. Dear chief justice Roberts, justice Barrett Gorsuch Kavanaugh and Thomas, as you'll no doubt agree roe versus wade was an ill judged decision one was handed down January 22nd, 1973. It continues by saying, roe versus wade diminished the standing on the court by turning it into an even more political branch of government. But a half century is a long time. America is a different place, with a most of its population born after Rowe was decided. After a decision to overturn roe, which the court seemed poised to do, according to the leak of a draft of a majority opinion by justice Samuel Alito, would do more to replicate gross damage than to reverse it. He says it would be a radical, not conservative choice. So Brett Stevens, who I assume is very highly educated. I would like him to tell me what is the definition of radical. It means to the root to the core. To the basis. Brett Stevens asks the question in The New York Times. What is conservative, he says? It is above all, the conviction that abrupt and profound changes to established laws and common expectations are utterly destructive to respect for their law and institutions established to uphold it. And especially when those changes are instigated from above with neither Democrat consent, nor broad consensus. Okay, that is not what a conservative is, okay? If there is an immoral or destructive law, a conservative has a moral obligation to try to repeal it and get rid of it quickly.

Harvard, Slavery, and the Confusion of It All
"I'm not quite clear. They were Harvard faculty 65 members, I think you said, who had slaves, obviously in the 19th century. They were sorry, just to interrupt. You just to correct, they said that they didn't specify the number of faculties that they said that between them 70 slaves. 70 slaves. There are 70 slaves on nuts, slave owners, right? I should probably much fewer slave owners because many had more than one. Okay. What on God's earth does that have to do with Harvard and blacks today? I know. No, no. Sorry. Well, you know what? The way you responded? Nothing. It's exactly right. Nothing. Don't make me laugh, Dennis. I have a cough. Right. It's a problem. Excuse me. Sorry to the listeners. This is real. My cough. Enjoy. Right, everything about this is real. No, I want to analyze it. Obviously it was partially rhetorical question. But what would they answer? I don't understand. So in the course of all of Harvard's history and Harvard goes back to the 18th century, so it's one of the first 17. Does that right? It was the 1600s. 16, 36, I think. That's astonishing. I don't even know anything was happening then. Okay, be that as it may, fine. So Harvard goes back all that time and in the entire time it had 70 slaves. It, I mean, members of the faculty or whomever or administration. So I'm not I'm still not understanding what is their argument. We owe the descendants of those slaves, or all blacks, what is their thinking? I don't know, Dennis, that's very interesting. They never really specified what their goal is or what they're thinking here is. The opening of the video that I mentioned, again, there's so much to unpack in that video. But they talk about how Harvard is seen as this perfect place in this ivory tower. The best of the best. And yet, there's an ugly history hidden in the walls. And we must confront this history. I guess that's the closest I can get to what their goal is.
Why Joseph Pearce Wrote 'Defender of the Faith' on Pope Benedict XVI
"Decidedly literary person and a man of great faith. His name is Joseph pierce. He's been on the program before talking about many books. His books on Chesterton and souls and eats it in so many others. He has a new book out about someone you may have heard of, Benedict the 16th. I think you can tell from the name that he was Pope. Remember, Benedict the 16th, a biography titled defender of the faith by our friend Joseph pierce, Joseph pierce, welcome back. Great to see you. The greatest year again, Eric, it's been some time. Good to see you again. It has. And I just have to say, congratulations on the book. It's a beautiful book.

We want to charge that will move the world. And I think this St. John Paul the second and Benedict the 16th moved the world rather than moving with it. And there's a crucial difference. I think you're quite right. And I

"The when do better to speak with our old friend around love them and there he is on the other end of our line right now good morning Sharon good morning Paul how are you I am excellent Sir we didn't get a chance to talk about the passing of Lee Iacocca whose services he'll be laid to rest of today and then the lost two of the colorful self made the Texas billionaire who rose from a childhood of depression era poverty and twice mounted outsider campaigns for president to Val dying at the age of eighty nine H. Ross Perot you know Ross Perot is a guy who was not that well known nationally I guess in general he sold his company EDS and GM in any game some celebrity but of course what really made unknown where she has to run for president of the United States and many people still think that he helped get Bill Clinton elected over George Bush and George H. W. bush in the second term even though many political scientists say that's kind of unclear well nineteen percent of the vote it was a big deal and in fact Mr Perot's nineteen percent is that one of America's great newspapers Toledo blade says Mr Perot's nineteen percent of the vote in the nineteen ninety two presidential election stands among the best showings by an independent candidate in the past century so he did well he did very well in Detroit we're always going to remember him as the man who opposed Roger Smith ultimately and argued with Roger publicly over the direction of General Motors motors and ended up being very prophetic in terms of what ultimately happened with General Motors I think it's fair to say that looking back over what Ross Perot had to say about the pace at which GM was changing in the eighties and nineties which was not sufficient he really in in many ways his advance foreshadowed the bankruptcy in two thousand nine and he'll be missed if the thing about General Motors what you love General Motors she really wasn't anti General Motors he he thought General Motors was an American institution that really had to be saved and I never really got a chance to talk to him about the the reorganization of General Motors but I'm I'm quite sure that he would have approved in your writings in the past you did spend some time with H. Ross Perot then I spent a lot of time with the my visit them often in Dallas and it all started when I when I came to Detroit not expecting to stay as a correspondent for the Wall Street journal and found myself on the telephone with him one day and we got into a long conversation about General Motors and it was punctuated by invitation to come down to Dallas and talk to him in his office and I did and that led to a series of stories in the Wall Street journal's a nomination for all kinds of prizes at that and a lot of attention because of what he was saying about what was then the most successful car company in the history of the world did you ever get to his place in Bermuda that I rip yeah I remember that story they had to cut out a piece of coral reef so that his yacht could pull up to his house in Bermuda and he got into a whole whole lot of trouble but that you learn the expression ask for forgiveness not permission yeah he was he was something of a character but I think in many ways his public life outwardly what was new was pretty modest yes of course he was a billionaire yes of course you had planes and yachts and and and all kinds of houses and so forth but you want that stuff whenever I went down to see him at his office it was a nice office but nothing too elaborate and whenever we drove around Dallas he was always drive the three year old York so up he wasn't trying to rob anybody knows that the bottom used because that was the best way I guess for him eggs here we're in northwest Ohio he never made it to northwest Ohio when he was running for president but people loved him if they love them they love them they were called the Perot keys and in my local area here the Perot geese from northwest Ohio would pass out bumper stickers and fires even though he never came here they were they were pushing form he was a special character that's for sure H. Ross Perot gone I guess who say they happen in threes Lee Iacocca and locally we could say Peter Walt Meier Pete the colonists son who is a city councilman for a very long time and very active in the politics and other things around us the wrong you're very active two we appreciate you taking time to speak to is this morning thanks thanks for calling appreciate Paul good luck with it offered thank you much seven thirteen.

"Number is eight hundred nine four one Sean you want to be a part of the program. The president is in Great Britain. He is to meet with the British Prime minister may on a mess. Brexit has become over there. And why because you have a bunch of politicians that want to circumvent the will of the people of Britain, because and she can't get the deal done. I don't think she's long for the political world. There. President having a back and forth with those, you know, wacky mayor of London, Sadique Khan, and a direct tack attack on him. And the president took to Twitter as it was landing in the UK and anyway, the president, you know, appeared to make them ALI'S flying over British hair space, but using Air Force One anyway, the mayor Kahn wrote for the British newspapers, which is like the best known old left wing Sunday, paper, the day before the state visit and con compared Trump to most fascist and authoritarian leaders of the past century, and well, in-kind President Trump pointed out the cons, poor record as mayor where crime, particularly violent crime and murder has been soaring and suggested the is labor party politicians spend more time doing their job properly than attacking. The leaders of key, British allies and then roasted con is the terrible attempt at leading London and president also said that Khan had been foolish was a stone cold loser and very much very dumb and incompetent like the mayor of New York, comrade build the Blasi, oh, which kind of made me chuckle a little bit. And. The news is making a lot of big deal Trump's hairstyle church changed. Okay. As big news for everybody. President change this air style. Go. There's a lot happening on the deep. State was really fascinating is all the nuance new information we're going to get to in a second here. The president's attorney jaysekulow chief counsel for the American Center for law and Justice stops by Senator Lieberman on the state of the Democratic Party. It's really not a pretty picture in any way, shape manner, or form it's actually very ugly for the Democrats, and they don't know what to do at this point. So I think they're just as a belief among Democrats that they've got a double down on the most radical the most extreme ideas, if they if they want a shot at getting the party's nomination and maybe historically, it's been shown wisdom, if you kind of appeal more to the base of your party, and then you kind of go a little bit to the middle in the general election. The problem is, is the positions that these candidates are taking a so far. Radical left, if they ultimately get the nomination and I guess somebody will at some point emerge. I'm not feeling it for Joe Biden. I don't see that this guy has what it's gonna take to campaign, not only in against Donald Trump. And even in the primary guy takes off every other day he can't get crowds. He can't stop from putting his foot in his mouth, every other second. He's got a history now emerging that is extraordinarily ugly, one when you view, his speeches through the prism of where we are. Today is a society, and he's going to have to answer all of those questions. One way or the other all the left wing of kind of United and said, no. We don't want any part of crazy creepy sleepy uncle Joe. And so he's being attacked by everybody else that is in this field of extreme candidates. And he is extreme, and then he also has Russia happened on his watch. Add that to the msrb. List of failure of the Biden, Obama years, and, you know, one of the main questions people ask themselves every four years, are you better off than you are for years ago? Well, when we have the best to Konami we've had since nineteen sixty nine or setting record low unemployment for every single demographic group in the country, especially groups that would disproportionately negatively impacted under Biden Obama policies, and you got record low unemployment for African Americans, Spanich Americans Asian Americans women in the workplace youth unemployment. And you have nearly two million more jobs available than we have people on available to fill the slots, that was not a problem ever for the about for the Biden. Obama ticket ever, their numbers were trophyless, the only problem was, they had a media compliant in their back hip, and they did cover for them every step of the way and you know, what do people want to vote for peace and prosperity? Are we more prosperous is there more opportunity? Are we more secure as a country? You know, you can start with the democratic. Position. What why they would ever take on not, not even the abortion issue, but I will deliver the baby. I'll tell you what will happen. And then, you know, we'll make sure the baby's comfortable and, and then the mother will decide whether or not the baby's ever given any medical attention. Okay. That is now we're not talking about a fetus anymore. We're talking about a full term baby person. Born reading alone, independent of the mother, and that means a human being is right in front of you. And you have to be pretty darn callous to just say, we're gonna let the mother decide if that baby lives or dies as the baby is alive, right there in front of you, or when the when the remember when it was being sold in the house of Commons. It was the question went out there. So you're saying under your Bill that, that a woman can have an abortion, even during. During the birthing process in normal, terminal, full nine months. And the answer was, yes. Even if for example, a woman is in labor and a woman has dilated, and is about to give birth to a child that child fully capable of living independently outside of the mothers womb. Abortion. This is murder. This is infanticide. This is. But that's what the twenty twenty candidates are doing Alantic had a good piece on this twenty twenty candidates are going all in on abortion rights. That's not about a right to choose at this particular point. I love what e- asked liberals anytime you want the government to have any say in whether they, you must carry a baby to term what a woman can and cannot do with their buddy, all say. No. All right. Is that for the first three months, maybe where there's no viability is a factor at that point. Is it for six months for nine months after the baby's born? And this is where they've gone. And this is how extreme they become. Interesting to watch out in California over the weekend, democratic presidential hopefuls, you know. Well crazy creepy sleepy uncle. Joe was absent at the California state party gathering on Saturday, as you know, his opponents took a chance to make some digs at the former vice president, some save. We just come down the Republicans will come to their senses, Elizabeth Warren said in a clear reference to Biden's comments that the GOP may have an piffle after Donald Trump has gone, but our country is in a crisis, but, you know, then they go then they just go hardcore left. You know, most of these Democrats have adopted economic policies that guarantee this economy tanks, you know, Elizabeth Warren wants a wealth tax on top of the proposal that we have a seventy percent top marginal rate in all based on. Myth that the rich don't pay their fair share. It's, it's just not true. When when you have ten percent, paying seventy five percent of the federal income tax Bill. You have complete and full redistribution. When, when you have such a small percentage of people contributing, and then the rest of your. For business. All right. We've had great business investment in this country. And we've really only just begun people worried that might be slow an economic slowdown based on some of the trade issues with China and Mexico that are ongoing with the president, with, by the way, that would be a hiccup in my view. We want if we want to raise the standard of living of every single solitary American, we've got to do the exact opposite of what these twenty twenty candidates are proposing oil and gas is the lifeblood of every economy in the world, we happen to as a country be blessed with vast amounts of resources and the ability to extract it.
"past century" Discussed on The Food Disruptors
"And welcome to the food. Disruptors, the podcast, where capitalism meets America's food culture. I'm teary sobriety on and together with my co host Rettig Lawrence. We delve into the stories of the big personalities who have shaved fit system. And what why and how we eat today for better and for worse. And we look to the future through interviews with today's disruptors who even as we speak for determining everybody's nourishment in health as well as the health of the planet in years to come. Most US consumers recognized that the past century and a half of industrial agriculture has damaged vital ecosystems, including major watersheds, grasslands fisheries and arable land. We're losing top soil at an alarming rate. But still we keep on farming in the bad old way. We till the soil for excessive yields of commodities like corn, wheat soybeans rice and peanuts season after season. Why can't we push a reset button on this destructive scenario? One big reason is federal farm subsidies. Cool Turkey removal of subsidies might not work in the too big to fail industrial accident we've designed but New Zealand facing dire budgetary problems in the early nineteen eighties. Did. Just that removal of subsidies did 'cause really painful dislocations for farms at that time. But now thirty five years later New Zealand's agriculture industry is diversified and thriving are there lessons here for the United States. Let's listen to Yohannes Oleyinik who specializes in agricultural technology and food systems in his studies at Stanford graduate school of business and the Emmett interdisciplinary program in environment and resources. Johann is is a student soon to graduate right at the end of this year fan Stanford graduate school of business, but interestingly he is a joint degree student in Stanford in a disciplinary program in environment and resources, you is what is that program? So it's a program that runs with the business school and law school and this program isn't really a degree in itself. So you can't graduate from the it's called itself. It's just a joint degree program that's offered as to as and JD's about thirty people year and people can choose between nine different tracks tracks focus on energy on clean energy on sustainable design. And I'm in the land use in agricultural track. So there is a land years in agriculture. You're getting a master of science in check. So what do you study in that? So. So it's basically a combination of classes, and it's pretty flexible, I've taken classes at the design school, for example, where we were working with Stanford athletes and the dining halls to promote plan forward diets, I've taken classes at the earth system school engineering school and just sort of trying to get a broader sense of agriculture and land use. I I wanna get you on another podcast in for forward diets that. And we have a very big subject to talk about today, which is going to be agricultural subsidies and government policies supporting agriculture. But before we do that you hunt as tell disrupt listeners how you got interested in the food sector because your background is both in agriculture technology and funding and really in rural agricultural systems globally. So how did you get from Germany to there? So I was born in Germany burn raise their went to college there. And then had the opportunity got connected through Stanford opportunity to go to a for profit social enterprise in. Rhonda, there's working with small to farmers trying to build a mushroom industry in Africa. And there were at that point, no mushroom fresh mushroom producers in sub Saharan Africa. So they're really trying to build this industry from scratch dimensions grey naturally. They do not on a commercial scale. So they were introducing ice mushrooms. I ice mushrooms now button mushrooms to is Africa these climate with the amenable, Josh gyms. Yeah. Definitely they're pretty they're pretty flexible. They don't there's not a lot of requirements for mushrooms in terms of climate. So people were doing this in Kigali as capital in their backyards, really since pivoted and gone into a little larger scale farmers working with a couple of hundred farmers at the border with the Congo. And producing button mushrooms for large hotel chains in east Africa. So like as a cooperative, more or less? It's a for profit company, and they are sort of outsourcing the growing purchasing the mushrooms plant, critiquing, basic. Basically. So through dad for more through the social impact lands got interested in or got I touch with food and agriculture, and then had the opportunity do something somewhat similar but much larger scale in in the Himalayas Mouton and was working with hazelnuts there, which work I talk that. And another fate is this epithet, stay tuned. So was working heads there. And at that point really realized how impactful food and agriculture 's really focusing on how many people get in touch with food products every single day, and especially how impactful it is in the developing world where really fifty to eighty percent of people still working culture in the US. It's now about two percent. So not not as many people as it used to be. And it's the cleaning pretty rapidly even twenty years ago. It was still five percent of the us. So but still it's very impactful area to be in. And I also just happen to like food allowed. So yes, they'd in that space, and then came to Sanford and last summer worked with fallen capital invest in. In I in farms across the US and invest in academic. So investing in farms across the US was that in farms doing unique innovations in their farming. So it's mostly Roku up farms. Mostly corn soy a little bit of read a little bit of rice. It is all the big five commodities yet. And we're mostly looking for founds either undervalued at this point because the farmers happened to not be super productive or where we think we can convert grazing land into into row crop farms. So that was one of the pros and also drawing on the experience of climate lose one of the co founders who happens to be a generation confirm, and as one of the most productive confirm in the Quan belt, then this is this is going to make our coming discussion set richer because the big five commodities this. You said are for the most part the biggest recipients of agricultural subsidies are or government support in one way or another in the US, but that's not the case, globally and. So you now you have experience or of researched the agricultural sector in New Zealand. Tell us how you came to do that first of all so Stanford as a program for second year students to lead study trips across the world for twenty five first year students and few of my classmates, and I were setting up a trip to New Zealand. And we all interested in food and agriculture, and so chose that chose New Zealand deliberately as as the destination because we thought they have such an interesting approach to agriculture in particular. And as we're talking about subsidies, they happen to be the only developed country in the world that doesn't have any subsidies. For agriculture wits. Folks is more amazing than that might sound. And there's a long and and almost tortuous story behind that. So how did new-zealand well first of all do, you know, win subsidies started in New Zealand, not quite a Wedneday started. I know when they were bowlers, let's let's start in there. Tell us the story of getting rid of farm subsidies in New Zealand. But before you do what is the agriculture sector like in New Zealand? So it's very aids very big. It's a very very important part of the economy still about thirty to forty percent of GDP. By comparison. What is it in the US below five percent so much much more important and really the only developed country in the world that has that high over share for culture as part of the DP, really? And it also happens to be extremely export-focused soda exporting about ninety five percent of their produce the producing their at four point six million people producing food for forty million people. Wow. And for Tara and Frontera. So the big mill producer in New Zealand heavens to expert thirty percent of the global milk export. So as one company, okay as we should probably talk about the dairy industry. But let's talk about Eggen general there. So it's a huge part of the economy, and I imagined. Well, let me ask are there is a large portion of the. Relation working in agriculture. They're a pretty big push. And yet, I mean, definitely Melot more people than as a percentage of population. A lot more people than here again about twenty five to forty percent of the population. So well it sets it it is sets. I've only ever seen pictures. I've never been bed. It looks like such an amazing geographical plays that just lends itself to to lush production. Absolutely. Yeah. I bet it's not all probably easily era ball. I mean, there's a lot of sheep there. Right. So that's that's an interesting thing in the eighties. Just before agricultural subsidies were abolished they had about a twenty five to one ratio of sheep to human. Well. And now it's dropped to seventy one still a lot of sheep but significantly less in terms of relationship with people, let's say, how are sheep in terms of their impact on the land. And the pretty pretty decent. Generally, both cattle and sheep tend to be a lot better than row crops in terms of soya hall, and and emissions. By aso. The drive y less sheep today is mostly driven by a lack of demand cell is this she Pittock should mainly for meat or is it also will both. Okay. Because sheep I've been looking into regenerative agriculture, and we did a couple of episodes on Pompeo ranch out here in Pesca Darrow. And we're going to be doing more on sustainable, meet growing pros and cons at cetera. Mander standing is that sheep don't have the bodily heft to really break up the soil and stirred their manure back into the soil. No as far as grazing goes. Did they do they practice way you move this sheep from pasture to pasture paying attention to that sort of thing in New Zealand? So the V visited when we were down there. They all were definitely practicing. That just because it's the most sustainable approach and defining visited we're all owned by the person, that's also farming which sentence are lined at that point. Whereas where you have what you have in the us, very often. We're more than fifty percent
