The Chinese Communist Party and its leader, Xi Jinping, have told us what their geopolitical and military plans are. Is anyone in our country listening? First up this week is Seth Cropsey (hudson.org), Director of the Center for American Seapower at the Hudson Institute. The Chinese navy is building ships at a rapid rate and mapping out strategy regarding Taiwan and the U.S. Our military, on the other hand, is worried about gender pronouns. There are weaknesses within China, if only we would recognize them and exploit them. Eventually reality becomes real. Will we face a knockout punch or will we wake up before that happens?
Is there any hope with America’s education system? Indoctrination and incorrect narrative-driven history is running amok. Joining us this week is Jacob Howland (city-journal.org), Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at the University of Tulsa. He draws on his many years of experience in higher learning to show how educrats are removing classical education from the classrooms and replacing it with slogans and leftist ideologies. So is there any hope? Some teachers and many parents have now recognized what’s going on and they’re fighting back. Let’s hope it’s not too late.
One of the ways that parents are fighting back is at school board meetings. Why are they angry? Three words: critical race theory. Wrapping up the show this week is Julie Gunlock (iwf.org), Director of the Center for Progress and Innovation at the Independent Women’s Forum. Many school boards blindly support critical race theory, but some board members have gone so far as to lash out at parents because they oppose CRT. Those same parents have now woken up and are pushing back – some by running to replace these board members.
