    Voter Suppression

    Voter Suppression

    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.

    The President Has Been Killed; The Republic of Chad Hangs In the Balance

    The President Has Been Killed; The Republic of Chad Hangs In the Balance

    It's the story hardly anyone in America is talking about. One of Africa’s longest-serving presidents, Idriss Deby of Chad (who had ruled for 30 years) was recently killed in a battle against rebels advancing towards the capital. His shocking death has thrown the country’s frequently tempestuous politics into further turmoil, even as the rebels remain in the field. On this fascinating episode, we talk about who President Deby was and what his legacy looks like, what's at stake for this troubled region in Africa, and what this means for America and our allies.

    President Biden's "Infrastructure" Plan

    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 Corporate Capitalism

    Woke Corporate 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 antidote 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 Condition
    1 Investor With 1 Share Can Call Out Corporate Leftism
    The Agenda of Black Lives Matter Is Far Different From the Slogan
