  • Why Hunter Biden Case Smells Strongly of 'Corruption'

    17:24
    Hunter Biden has been found guilty on all three of the felony charges he faced, but the case, according to Mike Howell, smells of "corruption." “What's happening with Hunter [Biden] is essentially they picked the lowest level thing that didn't connect to [President] Joe [Biden], the thing they could paint in the light of addiction, the most sympathetic light, as a means to absolve him for guilt in everything else,” says Howell, executive director for the Oversight Project at The Heritage Foundation. “What the American people really care about, what I care about, is not that Hunter [Biden] was a crackhead,” Howell, also an investigative columnist for The Daily Signal, said, but “the corruption in the federal government, that Joe Biden and his family were running an international pay-to-play influence-peddling scheme in some of the most corrupt regions of the world, to include Ukraine and the [Chinese Communist Party].”Howell joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to argue why the guilty verdict in the Hunter Biden case is more complex than it may appear.Enjoy the show!

  • Why Results of EU Elections Are Likely to Make Biden ‘Nervous’

    15:55
    The European Union may have just taken a big step to the political right, and the Biden administration should take note, Nile Gardiner says. “I think that the Biden White House is going to be very nervous, looking at the results in Europe, because European voters have overwhelmingly turned against a lot of the left-wing dogma and agenda, not only [that] Europe leads, but the same agenda that is pursued by the Biden administration,” says Gardiner, director of the Margaret Thatcher Center for Freedom at The Heritage Foundation. The European Parliament held elections Thursday through Sunday, in which millions of Europeans cast their ballots across 27 countries, and Europe’s conservatives won big. “I would describe the election results over the weekend as nothing short of a political revolution within Europe—a firm rejection of socialist ruling elites,” says Gardiner, who prior to joining Heritage in 2002 was foreign policy researcher for former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.In response to this “political revolution,” French President Emmanuel Macron has called for snap legislative elections at the end of June and beginning of July. According to Gardiner, this is a very risky move for Macron, as he is giving the French electorate the chance to further embrace a conservative government. Gardiner joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to explain the implications of the European elections on the U.S. Enjoy the show!

  • Bob Woodson on Why DEI Is Being Ditch

    18:37
    Some universities are repealing and replacing their diversity, equity, and inclusion policies. At the end of May, the University of North Carolina system voted to repeal and replace its DEI policy for a new policy that “aims to ensure efforts to support students on UNC System campuses do not infringe on academic freedom, equal opportunity, or institutional neutrality,” according to the university. In Utah, the state recently passed legislation to halt all DEI activities in the state’s universities. Conservatives have long raised concerns over the harmful implications of DEI programs, which Bob Woodson argues are “institutionalizing racism in the name of addressing social injustice.”Woodson, founder of the Woodson Center and author of “Red, White, and Black: Rescuing American History from Revisionists and Race Hustlers,” says “it’s insulting to black America to assume that social justice can only be achieved by changing the rules, dumbing down standards, and compromising the basic integrity. We fought in the Civil Rights Movement so that we can move beyond race and define ourselves by the content of our character, but this is turning the clock back.”Enjoy the show!
