    The Hollow Core of Constitutional Theory (Guest: Donald L. Drakeman)

    The Hollow Core of Constitutional Theory (Guest: Donald L. Drakeman)

    Heartland’s Tim Benson is joined by Donald L. Drakeman, Distinguished Research Professor in the Program on Constitutional Studies at the University of Notre Dame, to discuss his new book, The Hollow Core of Constitutional Theory: Why We Need the Framers. They discuss how judges have historically tried to identify the will of the lawmaker in interpreting legal texts, how constitutional theory has drifted from this practice in both originalist and living constitutionalist interpretational theories, and why we need a return to the search for the Framers’ intentions.

    The Climate Change Narrative Is Built to Empower Elites (Guest: Marc Morano)

    The Climate Change Narrative Is Built to Empower Elites (Guest: Marc Morano)

    At his award-winning website Climate Depot, Marc Morano shows that climate change is being blamed for everything. Examples include pandemics, forced elderly prostitution, polar bear incest, and more insanity climate change is apparently behind. Fortunately, global elites have a solution; policies which raise food and fuel prices and produce shortages. Why would elites want this? It’s so big government can step in, take more control, and "solve" the crisis. Fortunately, polls show people are increasingly waking up to the lies and true motives behind climate alarmism.

    Direct Primary Care Center Saves a Small Community (Guest: Mark Blocher)

    Direct Primary Care Center Saves a Small Community (Guest: Mark Blocher)

    The big hospital healthcare systems have left the rural town of Newaygo, Michigan in the dust. Residents in this small, rural community have had to travel sometimes an hour to get basic primary health care service. In comes Christian Health Care Centers to the rescue.

    Newaygo community leaders ask the direct primary care practice (DPC) if it would consider opening a second facility in their town. Christian Health Care Centers is a facility-based DPC that opened in 2017 and has had remarkable success. The community and CHC worked together to make it happen and on May 10, 2022, they celebrated the grand opening of a new 8,150 square foot facility. Residents are thrilled they don’t have to travel for basic health care and they’ll save a bundle of money under the direct-pay, membership model.

Alternate News

I learn so much from Heartland Daily Podcasts. I consider it my source for information not carried by MSM. I hope others will give it a try to balance out what they're hearing and reading in MSM. I rely on Heartland for news on “Climate Change” information/disinformation, education, healthcare.
