America Begins: The Origins and Meaning of Our Declaration of Independence, with Dr. Danielle Allen

For this very special 4th of July episode, Dr. Danielle Allen returns to explore the history, meaning, and philosophical foundations of the Declaration of Independence. What did the Founding Fathers mean by the words, "We hold these truths to be self evident..."? In what ways did they weave the concept of equality into this founding document? How should we deal with the hypocrisy of Jefferson and others who pledged their lives to the words "all men are created equal" while at the same time enslaving people? What's the difference between our political constitution and our social constitution, and how are they aligned in America today? Dr. Danielle Allen is the author of "Our Declaration: A Reading of the Declaration of Independence in Defense of Equality." She is also the James Bryant Conant University Professor at Harvard University, Director of Harvard’s Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics, and the principle investigator for the Democratic Knowledge Project. Follow her on Twitter at @dsallentess.

The mob vs the miracle: will Western civilization survive? with Jonah Goldberg

Is western civilization in decline? Author and political commentator Jonah Goldberg joins us for a conversation about his book "Suicide of the West" - an exploration of the history and founding principles which gave us the miracle that we call America. The progressive left has spent decades stoking tribalism and identity politics to tear that miracle apart, erase history, and remake civilization. Do the events of the past few months mean their efforts are succeeding? Jonah Goldberg holds the Asness Chair in Applied Liberty at the American Enterprise Institute, is editor-in-chief of The Dispatch, and hosts the podcast “The Remnant with Jonah Goldberg.” Follow Jonah on Twitter at @JonahDispatch.

Ride Along: Reality on the Thin Blue Line, with Officer Joe Gamaldi

As the House prepares to vote on the Democrats’ police reform bill and Senate Democrats blocked Senator Tim Scott’s police reform bill from even being consider, it’s a good time to get the law enforcement perspective on these proposals from an actual police officer. Joining us is Joe Gamaldi, the President of Houston Police Officers’ Union, Vice President of the Fraternal Order of Police, and an active member of the Houston Police Department. Officer Gamaldi still patrols the streets and knows exactly what our cops face up against every day and as the President of the HPOU has his finger on the pulse of the larger force. Officer Gamaldi served three years in the NYPD before coming to Houston in 2008. He’s been President of Houston Police Officers’ Union since 2017 and National Vice President of the Fraternal Order of Police since 2019. Follow Officer Gamaldi on Twitter at @JoeGamaldi.

Cutting Red Tape to Build Crucial Infrastructure, with Alex Herrgott

Alex Herrgott leads an independent federal entity whose sole focus is cutting millions of dollars in unnecessary project costs that environmental groups add, while slashing red tape and preventing anti-development activists from using the court system to prevent much needed economic recovery through acceleration of investment in our national infrastructure which provides immediate and lasting economic benefits for states, local communities and small businesses. Alex joined us to explain how the Permitting Council cuts through the bureaucracy and serves as a one-stop Federal shop to provide coordination across the Federal government for America's largest, most complex infrastructure projects. Alex Herrgott was appointed by the President as the Executive Director of the Federal Permitting Improvement Steering Council on September 21st, 2018. Mr. Herrgott had been serving as the Associate Director for Infrastructure for the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) at the White House prev...

The Constitutional and Political Dynamics of the Indefinite Lockdowns, with Randy Barnett

Professor Randy Barnett of Georgetown University Law Center joins us on the podcast to discuss some of the constitutional elements of the COVID-19 lockdowns, as well as the ideological undercurrents fueling our polarized political climate. What real, practical problems do the lockdowns pose with regards to the Fourteenth Amendment? How is the pandemic becoming an arena for the arbitrary exercise of the police power by government officials? What do the lockdowns and the recent protests reveal about modern liberalism? Are we witnessing the destruction of the “moderate left” in real-time? Professor Barnett tackles these issues and others with Congressman Crenshaw. Professor Randy Barnett is the Carmack Waterhouse Professor of Legal Theory at the Georgetown University Law Center. He teaches constitutional law and contracts and is the director of the Georgetown Center for the Constitution. Professor Barnett has authored numerous books and textbooks, including the recently published "An Introduction to Constitutional Law: 100 Supreme Court Cases Everyone Should Know," which he co-authored with Professor Josh Blackman.
