    Why Hamas Is to Blame for Gaza Famine

    Why Hamas Is to Blame for Gaza Famine

    A Columbia University professor says Hamas is responsible for the ongoing famine in Gaza. 
    “It is in Hamas' interest, as they have defined it, to actually create a situation of misery and starvation, rather than worrying about its population and making sure that its population stays safe,” according to Awi Federgruen, a professor at the Columbia University Graduate School of Business and a global supply chain expert. 
    The United Nations says there is a “full-blown famine” in northern Gaza, which has led to additional pressure on Israel to allow more aid into the region, but Federgruen says the problem lies more in the aid not reaching the people it is intended to help.
    “A quick analysis shows that the amount of food that is coming in from Israel is absolutely plentiful to feed every single individual that lives in Gaza,” the professor says. 
    In recent weeks, Federgruen says, food truck deliveries were slowed because “Hamas has chosen to send its rockets specifically to the crossings.” 
    Federgruen joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to unpack what is known about the food shortage in Gaza, and Hamas' role in blocking civilian aid. He also discusses the continued fallout from weeks of anti-Israel protests at Columbia University.

    How Taiwan’s New President May Change His Country’s Tense Relationship With China

    How Taiwan’s New President May Change His Country’s Tense Relationship With China

    F-16s flew overhead, marching bands played, and singers entertained with cultural performances during Taiwan’s presidential inauguration on Monday. 
    The inauguration of President Lai Ching-te was “quite the party,” Asia analyst Michael Cunningham tells “The Daily Signal Podcast,” after attending the event in Taiwan. 
    The new president has a challenging job in front of him as the country continues to face threats of hostility from China. 
    Lai’s inaugural speech was overall “probably the most direct and the hardest-line inaugural address we've seen towards China yet,” says Cunningham, who serves as a research fellow in The Heritage Foundation’s Asian Studies Center. (Heritage founded The Daily Signal in 2014.)
    The new president likely angered leaders in Beijing, according to Cunningham, when during the speech he said the Republic of China—Taiwan—and the People's Republic of China are “not subordinate to each other.” While Cunningham calls this statement “common sense,” it is also “not something that you say generally if you're the president of Taiwan” because China interprets this as a “two-China philosophy,” when China actually considers Taiwan a part of the mainland.
    Ultimately, Cunningham says Lai is expected to seek to preserve the status quo between China and Taiwan.
    Cunningham joins the show to discuss where the relationship between China and Taiwan stands and whether America’s relationship with Taiwan is expected to change under Lai’s presidency.

Very prescient!

Better than The Daily Wire

I’ve been listening to The Daily Wire morning report since they started it. I still like it, but since I came across The Daily Signal, I’ve been spending more time listening here. Great up to the minute conservative reporting and wonderful guests.

Regarding August 30th …actually the original idea of the Senate was the representatives were supposed to be closer to the State not the President. Article 1 section 3 : the senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State , chosen by the legislature thereof….. this was changed by Amendment 17 in 1913 . This amendment said : “The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two senators from each state elected by the people …”. So basically the original thinking of the founders was to balance the power in congress between a popular vote (house) and a state legislature vote (senate). To me the 17th amendment was very wrong headed because this took power away from the State. Having Congress chosen by two different ways of election was way better. Now we see Senators no longer accountable to their State that they are supposed to represent (example in my case - John Cornyn- who votes many times with whatever McConnell says or even with the Democrats ). How differently would he vote on things if he were more beholden to the State?
