election reform

Under the Obama administration, we witnessed foreign policy that mostly did not work. Under President Trump, we saw a new and innovative way to approach foreign policy. But now we're back to the policies that have proven to be ineffective. First up this week is Gregg Roman (meforum.org), Director at the Middle East Forum, who looks at the Biden philosophy of hegemonic equilibrium – putting allies and foes on equal footing in a region – and how it has forced our allies to rely less on the U.S. He also points out how we are focusing on unimportant things while our geopolitical enemies are gaining strength.

Next, we have an important announcement for non-public schools. Brian Kelsey (libertyjusticecenter.org), Senior Attorney with the Liberty Justice Center, is with us to alert all private schools that there is money available for Covid relief – if you know where to look and ask for it. If you don't, it reverts back to the public schools.

One of the most important issues in this country is election reform. It is badly needed or dysfunction and fraud will continue to run rampant in our elections. We welcome to the program Michael O'Neill (landmarklegal.org), Assistant General Counsel for Landmark Legal Foundation. He reviews a case from Arizona involving people voting in precincts they don't live in as well as ballot harvesting, both backed by the DNC. The case is now at the Supreme Court and if this isn't overturned, it could set a dangerous precedent moving forward.

Finally this week, we look at the debate over whether online platforms should be considered publishers or editors. Political writer and author Steven Hill (steven-hill.com) joins us to explain both sides of the issue, the effects of the Facebook law in Germany and Section 230 here, and a host of other topics like algorithms, psychographic profiles, manipulated searches, and surveillance capitalism.

Alongside freedom of speech as one of our most important issues in this country is that of election reform. It is badly needed or dysfunction and fraud will continue to run rampant in all future elections. Joining us today is Michael O'Neill (landmarklegal.org), Assistant General Counsel for Landmark Legal Foundation. He reviews a case from Arizona involving people voting in precincts they don't live in as well as ballot harvesting. The Ninth Circuit ruled in favor of the DNC, who wanted to keep those two practices, and it was appealed to the Supreme Court. If this isn't overturned, it could set a dangerous precedent and significantly hurt election reform. He also looks at HR1 which would take power away from states and essentially federalize elections. We should expect to see decisions on these issues in the coming months.
