HR1

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.

HR1 is a new bill in Congress that, if passed, will codify every suspect procedure involved in the 2020 election – vote by mail, no voter ID, no voter roll cleaning, etc. J. Christian Adams (www.publicinterestlegal.org), President of the Public Interest Legal Foundation, joins us briefly to discuss this new bill. Attempts are being made to make that which is illegal legal.

We then transition to Kurt Hyde (thenewamerican.com), contributor to The New American magazine, who offers possible solutions to HR1, moving back to the fairly secure and reasonable voting procedures of the past. Can we have election reform if HR1 passes?

Censorship is running rampant today, but the media, who should be upholding freedom of speech, are instead advocating for more censorship. John Tierney (city-journal.org), Contributor Editor to the City Journal, is with us to discuss the ramp up of censorship since the Capitol violence and the hypocrisy of the media who did nothing when leftists called for violence during the Trump administration. When freedom is ignored, totalitarianism isn't too far behind.

Finally this week, Palestinian leaders are blaming Israel for not providing them with Covid vaccines, even though they had already procured some elsewhere. Back with us is Dexter Van Zile (www.camera.org), Christian Media Analyst with the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting and Analysis. He points to a bigger picture than just a vaccine controversy – statehood for Palestine and isolation for Israel.

HR1 is a new bill in Congress that, if passed, will codify every suspect procedure behind the 2020 election – vote by mail, no signature verification requirements, no voter ID, no voter roll cleaning, etc. J. Christian Adams (publicinterestlegal.org), President of the Public Interest Legal Foundation, joins us briefly to discuss this new bill and show that attempts are being made to make that which is illegal legal.

Now that we have the background on HR1, we transition to our second guest of the day, Kurt Hyde (thenewamerican.com), contributor to The New American magazine. He also identifies the problems in HR1 and offers possible solutions to move voting away from dysfunction and back to the fairly secure and reasonable way it's always been done. Election reform is needed. But if HR1 passes, will reform ever be possible?
