    Combatting Liberal Indoctrination through Education Choice

    Combatting Liberal Indoctrination through Education Choice

    Parents have natural and divine rights given to them as mother and father of their child. So what happens when those rights are interfered with and threatened? This week on CURE America, Jonathan Alexandre is back as guest host with a ton of new guests to discuss the current state of parental rights in America.
    Through the confines of COVID, more and more parents are becoming aware of just what that means, as the Left continues its assault of a woke ideology on our society, and perhaps most importantly, in our classrooms. Jamison Coppola with the Parental Rights Foundation, as well as Janae Stracke with Heritage Action for America, take us through the growing fight taking place at school board meetings and the grassroots movement to equip parents to fight for their right and role in their child’s education. Jamison Coppola with the American Association of Christian Schools takes us through some of the legislation making its way, on both sides of the fight, across the states, as well as the increasing intrusion by government into the religious liberty of Christian schools. Alfonso Aguilar is back, alongside CURE’s own Marty Dannenfelser, to discuss Biden’s brazen and divisive speech on the “Soul of America.”

    A Society of Sacred v.s. Secular

    A Society of Sacred v.s. Secular

    With the latest unconstitutional action by President Biden in cancelling student debt, we see just how far the Left is willing to go in literally buying the approval and support of so many Americans. Is this really the way to build a nation of strong character and a thriving, efficient economy? To look deeper into the far-reaching consequences this abuse of power will have on our economy and the future of higher education, Neal McCluskey, Director of Cato’s Center for Educational Freedom, is back on the show to shed light on how these actions are even worse than what was previously imagined.
    And as the breakdown of American ideals, freedom, and responsibility continue to collapse, we’re also joined by David Closson, Director of the Center for Biblical Worldview at the Family Research Council, as he walks us through the divisions we are seeing in society today and the current state of the pew and the pulpit in America. Alongside regular panelists Jonathan Alexandre and Alfonso Aguilar, a closer look is taken this week on CURE America with Star Parker on how a nation can remain intact when large parts of the population increasingly have opposing views on how they see the world.

    Untangling the Inflation Reduction Act

    Untangling the Inflation Reduction Act

    Now that the so called “Inflation Reduction Act” has been signed into law, what will we see? Will this actually reduce inflation, or is it just more government control that all taxpayers will pay for?
    Joining us this week on CURE America with Star Parker, Economist and President of Americans for Tax Reform, Grover Norquist, takes us through the weeds of what all is hidden and happening inside this new law – and what it will cost us. Regular panelist Jonathan Alexandre with Liberty Counsel discusses the recent massive win they’ve had in protecting the religious rights of healthcare workers to not be forced into taking a vaccine. Alfonso Aguilar is back, warning of the signs of socialism and where the road goes from here as CURE America sheds further light on this wish list of the Left that has now become American law.

    The Inflation Reduction Act - Bracing for Impact

    The Inflation Reduction Act - Bracing for Impact

    Democrats want big government, a lot of spending and taxation, the former of which we are now paying for in inflation, so the new strategy of Democrats is to now claim that spending and taxes reduce inflation.
    And now, legislation with a price tag of $433 billion in new spending and $327 billion in new taxes is becoming law.  It’s called the Inflation Reduction Act, and it’s like McDonald’s serving up a new Big Mac with more beef, more cheese and more sauce, and calling it the Weight Watchers Special.
    So, Lee Schalk, Vice President of Policy at the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), joins CURE America with Star Parker to walk us through the new spending, the new taxes, and the many new issues now coming our way (including 87,000 new IRS agents!) Alfonso Aguilar and Jonathan Alexandre are back once again, to take us through how this monstrosity of a bill will soon impact our lives, as well as the new developments in the fight to protect unborn life.

    The Dawn of a New Political Day

    The Dawn of a New Political Day

    With 100 days until the midterm election, it is a critical time to evaluate just what is at stake. This week on CURE America with Star Parker, Star stops by Congress to sit down with House Minority Whip and Louisiana Congressman Steve Scalise, as he provides further insight into the new policy agenda House Republicans are putting together as they pave a path forward for the nation and prepare for potentially taking back control of the U.S. House of Representatives. Horace Cooper, Chairman of Project 21 National Advisory Board, is back to discuss and contrast these efforts with the same ones made 25 years ago when he worked with House Majority Leader Dick Armey.
    Alfonso Aguilar is joined this week on the panel by Paris Dennard, National Spokesperson and Director of Black Media Affairs for the Republican National Committee. Together, they shed light on the work that is involved as the nation gears up for another election, the efforts taken and needed, and whether or not we will see politics continue as usual, or if this is the dawn of a new political day.

    Taiwan - China's Next Conquest

    Taiwan - China's Next Conquest

    The past year has contributed far too many deeply concerning news stories from around the globe. The debacle that was the withdrawal from Afghanistan, the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine. Now, we hear that tensions are rising with China as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi plans a trip to Taiwan. 
    Meanwhile, military leaders sound the alarm that recruitment numbers are down. So far down that they’re comparable to low recruitment following the Vietnam War.
    George Landrith, President of Frontiers of Freedom, joins to dive into the issues affecting our military and the threats arising abroad. Richard Manning, President of Americans for Limited Government, picks back up from our conversation last week, and Jonathan Alexandre and Alfonso Aguilar are back, as we analyze and discuss the relentless drive to enforce conformity to a leftist narrative within the military and where we stand with our national security in the midst of a weak presidency.

Star is fantastic and intelligent

I accidentally came across CURE watching a clip on fb and I was intrigued by Star’s reporting of urban neighborhoods with young black kids. She’s connects with them and inspire them in friendly way. Her podcast is eye opening.
