On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, Mike Edwards of Project Exodus Relief joins Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky to discuss how he and other private U.S. citizens are using their expertise and resources to facilitate rescues of those people who were left at the mercy of the Taliban in Afghanistan.

Join Jim and Greg as they applaud Jonathan Swan of Axios for exposing Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s plan to free every federal inmate within a decade. They also blast President Biden for acting like tapping the Strategic Petroleum Reserve is going to make any significant difference in energy policy or energy prices. And they unload on some of the worst grifters in politics – the Lincoln Project and Lin Wood.

 

This week on Hubwonk, host Joe Selvaggi talks with virologist, Dr. Peter Kolchinsky, about the explosion of vaccine technologies and innovations brought into the spotlight by the massive investment to fight the pandemic, and dives deeply into the exciting promise of vaccines to combat an ever-widening range of disease.

On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, Federalist Political Editor John Daniel Davidson joins Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky to discuss the ongoing Southern border crisis and highlight veteran border officials’ thoughts on how President Joe Biden’s radical policies are contributing to one of the nation’s top humanitarian catastrophes.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the Cook Report shifting three critical 2022 Senate races from leaning towards the Democrats to being pure toss-ups…and all of them are held by Democrats. They also shudder over the horrific killing and serious injuring of people at a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin, on Sunday. And they wonder why the suspect was even free in the first place. And they assess the significance of Chinese tennis star Peng Shuai appearing in public for the first time since her allegations that she was raped by a former high-ranking official in the Chinese Communist Party.

Federalist staff reacts to Friday’s jury verdict that Kyle Rittenhouse is not guilty on all charges. Ben Domenech, Emily Jashinsky, Eddie Scarry, and Kylee Zempel break down false media narratives, the expected reaction in Wisconsin, and what this case says about how communities handle violence and riots going forward.

Jim and Greg stand up and cheer for Women’s Tennis Association President Steve Simon and numerous players for publicly demanding that China prove that longtime tennis star Peng Shuai is alive and well and their her allegations of rape against a former high-ranking communist party official be seriously investigated. And they cheer Simon for willing to lose a billion dollars by pulling our of events in China if his concerns are not addressed quickly. They also cringe as the House of Representatives passes the bloated, deficit-growing spending bill known as Build Back Better, but they take a bit of solace in knowing this version likely won’t become law. And they fire back at an MSNBC columnist for telling parents that making demands about school policy and the curriculum is like telling a surgeon how to operate on your child.

Linguist John McWhorter is the author of the new book, “Woke Racism: How a New Religion Has Betrayed Black America.” He joins Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky for a discussion on a new kind of leftist who clings to the new religion of race where the original sin is “white privilege,” and why they can’t be negotiated with. McWhorter explains how we need to normalize calling out “woke racism” for what it is, while also looking at what the right gets wrong in discussions on race.

This week on JobMakers, host Denzil Mohammed talks with Alex Nowrasteh, the Cato Institute’s director of immigration studies and author of “The Most Common Arguments Against Immigration and Why They’re Wrong.” In it, he lays out in simple terms researched responses to anti-immigrant canards like, “today’s immigrants don’t assimilate like immigrants from before,” “immigrants are a major source of crime,” and “immigrants won’t vote for Republicans.” The same things said of immigrants today were said of immigrants a hundred years ago, no matter the group, whether Irish or Italian, Mexican or Haitian. This is the first of a two-part conversation, and some of what you’re about to hear might surprise you. Alex knows that. But getting truth and facts out there is paramount in advancing sensible policies that benefit all Americans, new or old, as you’ll discover in this week’s JobMakers.

We’re going to be off for Thanksgiving but back on December 2nd, when Alex Nowrasteh discusses undocumented immigrants, anti-immigration research and even Ann Coulter (!) in the next JobMakers.

Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky and D.C. Columnist Eddie Scarry break down the recent trial of Kyle Rittenhouse, the legal sideshow it has become, and the misleading corporate media obsession with it.

Scarry and Jashinsky discuss how legacy media coverage of the trial has likely led people who haven’t been following it closely to believe the likely outcome for Rittenhouse should be a conviction. The Wisconsin National Guard is on standby ahead of the expected verdict for only one outcome, “and if that outcome isn’t acquittal, that’s why they’re there,” Scarry said. “There will be no rioting if there is a conviction.”

This week on “The Learning Curve,” co-hosts Gerard Robinson and Cara Candal talk with Prof. Paul Israel, Director & General Editor of the Thomas A. Edison Papers at Rutgers University, and author of Edison: A Life of Invention, the definitive biography of America’s greatest inventor. Professor Israel describes Edison’s public and private life, as well as the impact of his world-changing inventions, such as the hot-filament light bulb, the phonograph, and the motion-picture camera. Called the “Wizard of Menlo Park,” Edison is still the American with the most individual patents — 1,093 in the U.S. and 1,200 in 34 foreign countries. They discuss what educators and students in the 21st century can learn from how Edison ran the country’s first industrial research laboratory in New Jersey, and the importance of the U.S. Patent Office in protecting inventors’ exclusive right to profit from their inventions. They also discuss what students should learn about the role inventions have played in the historic success of the United States and in the highly dynamic and competitive global economy. Professor Israel concludes with a reading from his biography.

Stories of the Week:  The Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) is celebrating its 75th anniversary of providing education for the children of American service members. Today, DoDEA operates 160 schools in eight districts across 11 countries, seven U.S. states and two U.S. territories for more than 67,000 students. (Read Pioneer’s related 2015 report.) In West Virginia, the Professional Charter School Board approved three applications for the state’s first ever charter public schools, which will provide another option for families who want and need a different learning environment.

Fox News’s Brian Kilmeade joins Emily Jashinsky to discuss the little-known story of how two American heroes put their differences aside for the sake of democracy and friendship. The historical context found in Kilmeade’s new book, “The President and the Freedom Fighter: Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, and Their Battle to Save America’s Soul,” sheds new light on today’s complex discussion of politics and race.

Join Jim and Greg as they serve up three good martinis. First, they applaud incoming New York City Mayor Eric Adams for rejecting threats from Black Lives Matter and vowing to restore law and order to the city.  They also issue a very rare good martini to President Biden for placing a diplomatic boycott on the Winter Olympics in China early next year. And they pop a lot of popcorn as former staffers of Vice President Kamala Harris vent her frustrations to CNN that she is getting lousy assignments from President Biden and that the administration refuses to defend her as vigorously as it sticks up for Pete Buttigieg.

This week on Hubwonk, host Joe Selvaggi talks with surgeon and author Dr. Marty Makary about the power and durability of vaccines, natural immunity and clinical therapies, that are overshadowed by the public health community’s continued target of zero COVID-19 infections.

Guest:

The American Conservative’s Shaun Rieley joins Senior Editor Christopher Bedford and Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky. The three discuss how the Glasgow Climate Conference revealed a transformation that’s taken place in our society through the last two years of tyrannical COVID-19 lockdowns and mandates.  Technocrats have figured out that they transform “emergency” COVID powers into permanent emergency powers over climate change.

Join Jim and Greg as they relish a stunning Washington post poll showing Republicans with a 10-point advantage on the generic ballot and Republicans with a big edge in the suburbs.  Given those political conditions, they welcome the news that Beto O’Rourke thinks this is is the cycle that Democrats can win back the governor’s office in Texas.  And they fire back as Jen Psaki suggests rapidly rising energy prices are proof we need to move away from fossil fuels and left-leaning media suggest the real story in this economic mess is that we need to lower our expectations.
