The Buck Sexton Show
I had the opportunity to guest-host “The Buck Sexton Show” on February 28, where we talked American Ingrate, coronavirus and its significance in terms of the battle between Communism and freedom, Huawei, 5G, and the argument for a national industrial plan to compete with the Chinese Communist Party, the corruption of public education and the creation of a generation of America-haters, the fantastic new documentary “Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words,” and much more with guests Joy Pullmann of The Federalist, David Goldman of Asia Times, and Michael Pack of Manifold Productions.
You can find it on iHeart, Apple Podcasts, or wherever you get your podcasts. I’ve embedded it below:
American Ingrate Week One Round-Up
Separately, I wanted to share some of the great coverage we received last week, and thank you all once again for helping make the launch of American Ingrate so successful.
Below is a round-up of media out of the gate, with more hits, reviews, and press to come in the weeks ahead.
I had the privilege of guest-hosting for my friend Buck Sexton on his “The Buck Sexton Show” for three days in a row.
On night #1, we discussed everything from impeachment, to Iran policy with the Hudson Institute’s Michael Doran, the China Phase One trade deal in context of the nature of the totalitarian and imperialist Chinese Communist Party regime, citizenship and the assault on sovereignty and separation of powers with Dr. John Eastman, plus much more.
On night #2, we discussed everything from impeachment and the assault on American justice by the administrative state, to the China Phase One trade deal with Trump administration Director of Trade and Manufacturing Policy Dr. Peter Navarro, Chinese soft power and its sway over Hollywood with my The Federalist colleague Emily Jashinsky, why Gen. Flynn was the first domino targeted by the Deep State to fall in the Trump administration, his remarkable whistleblower effort, and the latest on his trial with lead counsel Sidney Powell, plus much more.
On night #3, we discussed everything from Martin Luther King Jr. and identity politics, to the “Afghanistan Papers” with American Greatness‘ Julie Kelly, the
Richard Grenell is the U.S. Ambassador to Germany, and the longest serving UN spokesman and political appointee in American history, where he served from 2001 to 2008.
Amb Grenell occupies one of the most critical positions in American diplomacy in Berlin, not only because Germany represents the EU’s largest economy and has disproportionate influence on the continent, but because of its pivotal role with respect to both Iran’s efforts to evade U.S. snapback sanctions, and Russia’s efforts to provide energy to and thus leverage over European nations.
Jonathan Neumann has written perhaps the seminal book on how modern Jewry has supplanted its traditional values and principles with Leftism, based on a perverse, sophistic reading of the concept of tikkunolam, “healing the world,” that demands devotion to social justice as the highest good and organizing principle of the Jewish religion.
By way of background, Neumann is a graduate of Cambridge University and the London School of Economics. He has written for various American, British, and Israeli publications, was the Tikvah Fellow at Commentary magazine, and has served as assistant editor at Jewish Ideas Daily.
Dennis Prager (@DennisPrager) is a nationally syndicated radio host, columnist, author of numerous books, teacher, film producer and co-founder of Prager University — and these titles barely scratch the surface of his tireless and impactful efforts.
In a word, he has dedicated his life to advocating for Judeo-Christian and American values and principles across every medium almost daily to millions of people around the world with uncommon common sense, moral clarity and courage.
Rachelle Peterson is director of research projects at the National Association of Scholars (NAS), an organization dedicated to upholding “the standards of a liberal arts education that fosters intellectual freedom, searches for the truth, and promotes virtuous citizenship.” In that position, she has published numerous reports on trends in academia that threaten these values and principles, including one on the subject of this podcast titled Outsourced to China: Confucius Institutes and Soft Power in American Higher Education. Mrs. Peterson’s research and commentary has been published in outlets such as the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, National Review Online, and Commentary magazine. She has discussed her research on the Wall Street Journal’s Opinion Journal and on numerous radio shows.
Financial institutions, though often maligned especially in the post-financial crisis world, serve a vital marketplace function. Just like all enterprises, they can be vehicles for good, such as raising capital to help businesses grow, and ill, such as engaging in fraudulent activities.
On the negative side of the ledger, there is a sordid history of banks prioritizing profit over principle (principal over principal?) when it comes to doing business with evil regimes and sinister characters — most notably Swiss institutions during and after World War II, something I am proud to say my father worked to rectify.
This is what makes revelations over the latest Iran Deal-related Obama administration scandal so astonishing.
Amy Wax is the Robert Mundheim Professor of Law at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, where she specializes in social welfare law and policy as well as the relationship of the family, the workplace, and labor markets. She is the author of Race, Wrongs, and Remedies: Group Justice in the 21st Century.
Professor Wax has become a controversial figure because of her politically incorrect comments advocating in favor of bourgeois values and the WASP culture from which they stem, and in her claims that black students had generally performed at significantly lower levels than other students in her classes in context of a conversation about the downsides of affirmative action — comments that got her ousted from teaching the first year civil procedure class for which she had previously won an award for “teaching excellence.”
