    Ill Literacy, Episode XXIV: The Crooked Path to Abolition (Guest: James Oakes)

    Ill Literacy, Episode XXIV: The Crooked Path to Abolition (Guest: James Oakes)

    Heartland’s Tim Benson is joined by James Oakes of Graduate Center of the City University of New York to discuss his new book, The Crooked Path to Abolition: Abraham Lincoln and the Antislavery Constitution. They chat about the intellectual and legal wrangling between those who believed the Constitution was “anti-slavery” and those who believed it “pro-slavery.” They also discuss the development of the “antislavery project,” and how Abraham Lincoln and abolitionists undermined slavery wherever the Constitution gave them the power to do so. They delve into the racial ideology of the Republican Party at the time, Lincoln’s pessimism over race relations, and briefly discuss the 1619 Project and the 1776 Commission.

    Fighting Big Tech Social Media Censorship (Guest: Justin Danhof)

    Fighting Big Tech Social Media Censorship (Guest: Justin Danhof)

    Big social media companies driven not by profit and the good of their shareholders but by the leftist ideology are colluding with Democrats to suppress political speech and deplatform conservatives. This poses a huge threat to the continuation of a free constitutional republic. Conservatives must become more involved as shareholders to push balanced corporate policies and to refocus corporations on maximizing profits for their shareholders rather than pursuing liberal social and economic goals.

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.

Best "think tank" podcast out there

Heartland has been doing this for years, so it's not a surprise that the podcast is so professionaly produced and interesting for those who care about policy a lot more than politics. It's always a good discussion, and you learn a lot.
