However, chasing the almighty dollar in the People’s Republic comes at a price: lowering one’s standards of freedom and human rights. My guest is Tiana Lowe, she’s a commentary writer for the Washington Examiner. On today’s show, we’re going to discuss how the Chinese Communist Party exerts a huge influence over American enterprise–how in the age of woke capitalism, the NBA, Hollywood, and fashion industry have all become Chinese sycophants. “Hashing it Out” is a podcast hosted by Siraj Hashmi, Washington Examiner’s commentary video editor and writer. Each episode includes a political guest to offer historical context of the news and politics of the day and insight into how we got to where we are.

Donald Trump ran for president in 2016 with a central plank in his platform: building the wall. While reports from July indicate that no new miles of wall or fencing had been added along the southern U.S. border, the Trump administration has been aggressive at attempting to reform an immigration system that Americans across the political spectrum agree is broken. My guest today is Art Arthur.
