    John Fund: US Far Behind Mexico, Canada, and Europe in Election Safeguards

    “Almost all [European nations], with one or two exceptions, require https://www.theepochtimes.com/t-voter-id (voter ID) at the polls. … Mexico, which is our southern neighbor, has a very extensive biometric ID card and a very extensive voter registration system that’s constantly updated.”
    How prevalent is election fraud in the United States? And what explains the aversion in America to voter ID laws, restrictions on mail-in voting, and other https://www.theepochtimes.com/t-election-integrity (election integrity) laws that are common in much of the developed world?
    In this episode, we sit down with John Fund, who co-authored “Our Broken Elections: How the Left Changed the Way You Vote” with Hans von Spakovsky.
    “Minorities are often the biggest victims of this because they live in the areas where it can be practiced most assiduously and with the least consequence because the [political] machine often controls the levers of [prosecution] and law enforcement,” Fund said.

    “If you say these vaccines are safe for my children … remove the liability protection.”
    Previously, in https://www.theepochtimes.com/could-boosters-backfire-dr-paul-alexander-on-booster-shots-natural-immunity-and-the-failures-of-lockdowns-part-1_4115445.html (part one of our exclusive interview) with Brownstone Institute’s Dr. Paul Alexander, an expert in evidence-based medicine and clinical epidemiology, we discussed booster shots, the data on natural immunity, and the failures of lockdown policies.
    Now in part two, he reflects on his time in the Trump administration and the backlash he faced after he opposed school closures and advocated for early outpatient treatment. And he breaks down why he believes mandating COVID-19 vaccines for children is unethical, unscientific, and dangerous.

    Could Boosters Backfire?—Dr. Paul Alexander on Booster Shots, Natural Immunity, and the Failures of Lockdowns | PART 1

    “We do not know how the immune system is going to react to so much boosting. Why? Because the vaccine developers did not study it.”
    In this two-part episode, we sit down with Brownstone Institute’s Paul Alexander, an expert in evidence-based medicine, research methodology, and clinical epidemiology. He served in the Trump administration in Health and Human Services as a COVID-19 policy adviser. He breaks down the extensive data on https://www.theepochtimes.com/t-natural-immunity (natural immunity), the failures of lockdown policies, and the risks associated with COVID vaccines for children.
    “If you say these vaccines are safe for my children, if you stand by them … remove the liability protection [for vaccine developers]. Then we will talk about vaccinating children,” Alexander said.

    Jeffrey Tucker: How the Working Class Was Betrayed By Lockdowns, Vaccine Mandates

    Jeffrey Tucker: How the Working Class Was Betrayed By Lockdowns, Vaccine Mandates

    “Many societies have been constructed around this idea of clean and unclean. That’s what we did. And it’s grim. It’s brutal. It’s anti-modern.”
    At the Brownstone Institute’s inaugural conference in Hartford, Connecticut, we sat down with Brownstone founder and president Jeffrey Tucker to discuss https://www.theepochtimes.com/t-vaccine-mandates (vaccine mandates), the devastating consequences of lockdown policies, and his vision to create an intellectual sanctuary for free discussion and scientific inquiry.
    “Shutting the schools, closing the churches, sending SWAT teams into rural Texas bars to arrest people for drinking beers—they did all these terrible things. But once they invested so heavily in this population-wide experiment all over the world, now you have a problem, right? Because you’ve got a ruling class that’s not going to admit error. So that’s when the lies began. And the lies have not stopped. We live in a world of lies,” Tucker says.

    Yoram Hazony: How Hitler and Marxists Defiled the Idea of Nationalism

    Yoram Hazony: How Hitler and Marxists Defiled the Idea of Nationalism

    Adolf Hitler “detested the idea that nations should be independent. His worldview was to eliminate independent nations. … He stole our word [nationalism] and applied it to this evil-doing, to his imperialism.”
    At the National Conservatism Conference in Orlando, Florida, we sat down with Yoram Hazony, chairman of the Edmund Burke Foundation and author of “The Virtue of https://www.theepochtimes.com/t-nationalism (Nationalism),” to discuss the values of national conservatism and what he sees as an assault on tradition, family, and nation.
    “Honor, hierarchy, tradition, all of these things are pejoratives today because Marxists worked hard and systematically to make it so,” Hazony says.

    Dr. Jason Hill on Reparations, White Guilt, and the ‘Age of Post-Oppression’

    Dr. Jason Hill on Reparations, White Guilt, and the ‘Age of Post-Oppression’

    “I’m going to be a little bit radical here and say there is no racial reckoning to be had … I don’t know what further reckonings would look like short of tearing this country apart,” says Dr. Jason Hill, a professor of philosophy at DePaul University and author of “What Do White Americans Owe Black People: Racial Justice in the Age of Post-Oppression.”
    At the National Conservatism Conference in Orlando, Florida, we sat down with Hill to discuss our current political moment, the spread of https://www.theepochtimes.com/t-critical-race-theory (critical race theory), and his case against https://www.theepochtimes.com/t-reparations (reparations).
    “It befuddles me to see how someone who’s living in Appalachia in a trailer park, who has no access to water, health care, is a walking practitioner of racism, and that that person should, in some sense, participate in a reparations program for … an upper-class black person with five college degrees.”

Trying to get beyond the slant

There are no uninterpreted facts - However, American Leaders interviews help me to engage people who are directly involved in many of the issues being commented on in media and that helps me to get a more balanced outlook. Please keep up the good work.

More like this!

Excellent discussions, no nonsense or political bias—certainly geared toward conservatives, but fair and fact based. I wish there were more podcasts like this that focus on ideas rather than talking points.

Outstanding

Jan is the very best interviewer I’ve ever listened to. His podcasts are very thoughtful and Jan takes the time to deep dive the issues and topics. I would like to see more people listening to American Thought Leaders. I think people who take the time to listen to American Thought Leaders will be the ones who make intelligent choices in the governance of America.
