    The Republican Party and the Eco-Right

    The Republican Party and the Eco-Right

    In a February Pew survey, Americans were asked to rank their priorities of 20 major issues for 2022 and climate change came in 14th. In the partisan divide the survey found only 11% of Republicans even thought it was a priority. (On the Democratic side it was 65%)
    Former President Donald Trump still holds considerable sway within his party and he pulled the United States out of the Paris Accords and has repeatedly referred to global warming as a Chinese hoax designed to make US industry non-competitive.
    Swimming against this tide is the American Conservation Coalition. Their mission statement includes, not just a commitment to the environment, but to capitalism. "Strong property rights, competitive markets, and trade, coupled with a culture of environmental stewardship, produce the best environmental outcomes."
    We recently sat down with the ACC's president, Benji Backer, to talk about the future of environmental politics on the center-right.

    Ambassador Richard Grenell

    Ambassador Richard Grenell

    This week we split our time between the present situation in Europe and the future of domestic politics with Richard Grenell, a long time foreign policy advisor to Republican politicians.
    First, Grenell offers a look inside his former ambassadorial portfolio of Germany and how Angela Merkel's policies helped make the current crisis in Ukraine worse than it had it to be and, depending on the outcome of the 2022 midterms, what a Republican Congress can do under President Biden.
    Then we turn to domestic politics in 2024, whether Grenell has any ambitions for elective office and whether the field for the GOP primary will include the 45th President of the United States.
