    The ERA Frankenstein Monster

    The ERA Frankenstein Monster

    In this podcast I discuss House Democrats' effort to resurrect the Equal Rights Amendment nearly 38 years after its timely death.



    Articles referenced begin with CBS News on the House vote and a Washington Post article from 1981 on the expiration of the ERA.



    See also the DOJ's guidance on the expiration of the ERA, and the outrageous outrage from the left at Ruth Bader Ginsburg, for having the audacity to put the law first, and her own ERA advocacy second.



    It is clear that the ERA would force taxpayer funding of abortions, and give men a constitutional right to use women's restrooms. This would exclude women from sports competitions and scholarships, because biologically a person who gets regular doses of testosterone through puberty gets an insurmountable advantage.

    Episode #1: The New Podcast

    This week I've launched a new podcast, called "Moral Heritage." My goal is to share my thoughts on today's issues from a perspective sourced in Jewish values.



    In this episode I give a brief introduction, and then talk about the new Peace Plan.



    I refer to:



    Robert Malley and Aaron David Miller's The Real Goal of Trump’s Middle East Plan



    Jonathan Tobin's Time for the architects of Middle East failures to be quiet



    Rabbi Prof. Dov Fischer's The Deal of the Century: A non-starter?



    Rabbi Steven Pruzansky's The Deal of the Century: Cautious pessimism



    Enjoy!
