China's New Three-Child Policy
The Chinese Communist Party recently announced they will increase the number of children families are allowed to have from two to three. This comes after historically low birth rates last year, and growing concerns that China will not have a population to keep up with the growth. But will it work? It poses the fundamental question: Does the family support government or does government support the family? This week, we talk about China's vested interest in controlling personal family decisions, how the US should respond, and why a three-child policy will not help the Chinese People.

Louder With Crowder's Lawsuit and More Big Tech Censorship
Comedian and commentator Steven Crowder recently announced that he is suing Youtube after receiving his second "strike" for posting offensive content.

A Ceasefire and the Continued Rise in Anti-Semitism
Over the last few weeks, it’s been hard to miss all of the videos of missiles flying through the air, buildings collapsing, and people shouting. The conflict between Israel and Hamas Palestinian Militants continues to present challenges for achieving lasting peace in the middle east. But after 11 days of fighting, there is a cease fire. However, in response to this conflict, there has been an outbreak of anti-Semitic attacks around the world. The video footage is horrifying. On this episode we talk with Ellie Cohanim, who served as a top official at the US State Department on this issue.

The Real Story Behind Inflation
What do you know about inflation? Milton Friedman famously said: " Inflation is always and everywhere a monetary phenomenon, in the sense that it is and can be produced only by a more rapid increase in the quantity of money than in output." Of course, we all know the driver of the quantity of money is government spending priorities, and recently the government has been spending a lot. So what does that mean for the American people? On this episode, we talk about the basics of inflation, what it means for your pocket book, your gas tank, and your grocery bill. This episode shows what happens when too many dollars chase too few goods.Show Notes:Heritage Foundation Q&A on Inflation Specter of Rising Inflation Threatens Future Economic FreedomMilton Friedman Speech on Inflation See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Many on the left claim that voter suppression is not only happening throughout America, but we need to pass sweeping legislation (HR 1/For The People Act ) to federalize all elections, putting our democratic process in the hands of Washington, DC bureaucrats. But the Census Bureau’s recent 2020 election survey of voters clearly demonstrates that those who have been claiming, without justification or evidence, that we have been experiencing a wave of so-called "voter suppression" have a lot of explaining to do. This week, we dig into this new report, and build the case for stopping the For The People Act in the Senate. Show Notes:Voter Suppression? Dems Flat-Out Wrong.

President Biden's "Infrastructure" Plan
President Biden is proposing a massive spending plan to supposedly build and rebuild America's infrastructure. While the plan relies on the moderate and uncontroversial term "infrastructure," less than 5% would actually go toward traditional road infrastructure projects. Rather, it will be spent on corporate welfare, tax credits, and the left's radical "green" agenda. On this episode, we learn what's in this plan, how much it will cost, and how we're going to pay for it (HINT: Taxes are likely going up).

Woke Corpoate Capitalism
In 2015 Ross Douthat coined the term "woke capitalism" when writing a piece for the New York Times. He defined it as how companies signal their support for progressive causes in order to maintain their influence in society. He really tapped into something. Since then, this mindset has only grown, as the largest corporations are now weighing in of almost every major (and not-so-major) public policy issue. The problem: they increasingly land on the "leftist" side of the issue. So what is the impact? Is this a coordinated effort? What is the anecdote to this "corporate wokeness" infiltrating our largest American companies? On this episode, Andy Olivastro joins us to weigh in with a unique perspective. He led communications and reputation strategy for some of the largest corporations and best known brands, and witnessed first-hand this gradual shift toward "corporate wokeness."Show Notes: Success, Not Corporate Wokeness, Elevates the Human Condition1 Investor With 1 Share Can Call Out Corporate LeftismThe Agenda of Black Lives Matter Is Far Different From the SloganConservatives, take back the franchise with proxy voting See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

What Biden's Defense Priorities Should Be
President Reagan talked a lot about securing peace through being strong, and there's no question that our military is strong. But that strength is not absolute. It takes a lot of resources and constant innovation to keep up - especially when countries like China continue to grow their military presence around the world. So how do we keep up? This week, we dig into the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act), and the priorities that Congress must sanction in order to keep our military strong and prepared. In addition, we look at some of the differences in President Biden's defense priorities and the implications.

1.9 Trillion Reason the COVID 'Relief' Package Is a Disaster
This week the $1.9 trillion “American Rescue Plan” was passed. Yet only a paltry 9% (or less) of the stimulus will be spent on actual public health measures.

Our New Election Process if H.R. 1 Passes
Heritage Foundation President, Kay Coles James, said in a recent article the right to vote is one of the most sacred rights that we as citizens can exercise. Hardly anyone—Democrats, Republicans and independents—trusts the process anymore, and legitimate concerns exist about the fairness and accuracy of our elections. We saw all of this on display in the 2020 election. If the proposed bill H.R. 1 becomes law, it is certain this would become the new normal in America. This week, we break down H.R. 1 and how it would undermine our election integrity forever.

The Sexualization of Our Children
We are under attack from the Left's education agenda promoting information about sex, abortion, and politicized ideas about sexual orientation and gender identity. Our young children are being inundated with these heavy topics at their schools, in media, and throughout pop culture. It only seems to be getting worse. How do we push back? How do we turn the tide on an agenda that has the potential to damage the development of our kids?
