The left continues to push the narrative that so-called “gender-affirming care” for kids (puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones) is necessary to prevent youth suicide. But in reality, the data tell a totally different story, and parents are often kept in the dark. On this episode, we talk with Jay Greene about his new report that shows “gender-affirming care” is not only dangerous for kids, but also why parents (not government) must be empowered to make decisions for their kids.

Recently, some on the Left have tried to advance their arguments by claiming that rising crime rates are due to policies pursued by red states. In response, Heritage released a new report that shows that Democrat policies in Democrat lead cities and counties are actually responsible for rising crime rates in these red states. Cully Stimson, a widely recognized policy expert in crime control, and deputy director of Heritage’s Meese Center for Legal and Judicial Studies, and an author of this report joins us to explain more.

What is going on with the war in Ukraine? We hear about a counteroffensive, but what does that mean? How much longer will the Russians continue to fight? Should America continue to support Ukraine’s defense efforts? On this episode, Jim Carafano answers these questions, and talks about his recent visit to Ukraine, giving us a vivid, insider look at the streets and communities where war is being fought. It’s a special interview you won’t want to miss.  

This week, Congress will begin debating a continuing resolution to fund the government through mid-December. We are looking at new funding for Ukraine, Covid, Energy Independence and Security Act, etc. It’s a grab bag of more ways to spend tax payer dollars — and print the rest we don’t collect in taxes. If this is passed by Sept. 30, it sets us up for a spending showdown in the form of a harmful omnibus in December. Heritage’s own EJ Antoni breaks down what’s in this radical spending plan and its impact on Americans.

We all know American families are being crushed by four-decade high inflation, but the elites remain preoccupied with the likes of diversity hiring and student debt transfers from elites to every day taxpayers. It seems like every time we turn on the TV, we hear the Biden Administration and voices at the Federal Reserve talking about everything but fixing inflation. So what do we do about it? On this episode of Heritage Explains we talk about how to counter the DC elite narrative, and the steps we should be taking to fix this inflation problem once and for all.

China is rapidly expanding its nuclear capabilities. This week, Patty-Jane Geller, a senior policy analyst in Heritage’s Center for National Defense explains how many nukes the U.S. has in comparison to Russia and China and what a nuclear deterrence strategy looks like in today’s environment.

Recorded LIVE: The Biden administration has announced plans to pay off billions of dollars in student loans for college graduates. The administration will also extend a federal pause on student loan repayments, letting students avoid making even one payment on their loans or accruing new interest. Who’s going to pay for it? Working and middle-class Americans who likely didn’t have the same luxury to go to college. On this episode, we are going live to dive into this fundamentally unfair and regressive move that will also accelerate already historic inflation.

On Heritage Explains LIVE, The Washington Examiner’s Kaylee McGhee answers questions about school choice and why the left hates it so much.
