Heather MacDonald and Judge Jeanine Pirro

Heather MacDonald and Judge Jeanine Pirro.

First Heather MacDonald, (the Thomas W. Smith Fellow at the Manhattan Institute and Contributing Editor at City Journal), discusses why America is in crisis, from the universities to the workplace. From her new book The Diversity Delusion: How Race and Gender Pandering Corrupt the University and Undermine Our Culture Heather discusses how toxic ideas first spread by higher education have undermined humanistic values, fueled intolerance, and widened divisions in our larger culture. Chaucer, Shakespeare and Milton? Oppressive. American history? Tyranny. Professors correcting grammar and spelling, or employers hiring by merit? Racist and sexist. Students emerge into the working world believing that human beings are defined by their skin color, gender, and sexual preference, and that oppression based on these characteristics is the American experience. Speech that challenges these campus orthodoxies is silenced with brute force. Not only is this impacting our culture, but also our competitiveness as countries such as China and India who don’t assign such priorities will hire the best scientists and doctors, and are making gains in curing diseases and societal ills.

Then Judge Jeanine Pirro (former judge, prosecutor, politician and the host of Fox News Channel‘s Justice with Judge Jeanine) calls in to discuss the “dark forces that seek to obstruct and undermine the president, their ultimate goal to reverse the results of the 2016 presidential election”. Judge Pirro first discusses how civil discourse is missing from our culture, including her recent experience on the television show The View, where Whoopi Goldberg had some choice words. Then Judge Pirro discusses why she is not optimistic that the FBI, DOJ and other institutions will be held to account for their attempt to alter the 2016 election, what is happening with the Mueller investigation and she answers a couple of Ricochet member questions.

    Heather MacDonald was great. She always is. And if more people would listen to her, this would be a better land right now.

    The Judge is a disgrace. David and every other defender of Trump wants us to believe that only the left says that. Look, Jeanine Pirro is probably a nice lady, but she has been in public life for decades, in responsible positions. She can be Trump’s friend all she wants. It is not up to me, or anyone, to tell someone who to have as a friend. But it is her duty, it seems to me, to call Trump out on the many thing he has done to disgrace the office he holds. His policies are good, for the most part. But the Presidency is about more than policy, and if Mrs. Pirro can’t understand that, it is no crime for people like me to point this out to her.

    Thanks for another excellent podcast. Here’s the team of DWMs and LWMs which built NTS-2. It carried the first cesium atomic into orbit in 1977. Combined with the first three GPS Block 1 (experimental) satellites launched the next year, it provided the first full test of the GPS concept (four satellites providing a 3D position and time synchronization). Yes, it would have been nice to have women and minorities in the team, but GPS works nonetheless. I recently spoke with Pete Wilhelm (sitting far right) and Ron Beard (sitting two to the left of Pete) about the history of GPS
