  • Trump’s Legal Cases 101: Where They Stand

    20:27
    Former President Donald Trump is still facing multiple legal cases against him, including federal charges.In Manhattan, Trump is looking at felony charges over alleged hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels. In Georgia, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has accused Trump of seeking to interfere with the results of the 2020 election. The Justice Department’s special counsel, Jack Smith, brought two cases against Trump, one involving classified documents and the other stemming from the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.Last week, a New York judge ordered Trump to pay $354 million in his civil fraud case involving allegations that Trump improperly inflated the value of his property holdings. And in Colorado, Trump is fighting to keep his name on the presidential primary ballot in Colorado after the state Supreme Court ruled he couldn't appear on the ballot, citing the 14th Amendment. The latter case is now in the hands of the U.S. Supreme Court.The cases Trump is facing “paint a picture of a weaponized justice system,” according to Kyle Brosnan, chief counsel for the Oversight Project at The Heritage Foundation. (The Daily Signal is the news outlet of The Heritage Foundation.)“You have these rogue prosecutors in local jurisdictions in Atlanta and New York, and the attorney general of New York I’d throw in there, too, allocating vast amounts of resources to go after [Trump] when that's not really their job,” Brosnan said.He pointed to rising crime in cities such as New York and Atlanta as issues that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and Willis should be focusing their time and energy on instead.Brosnan joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to explain where the various cases against Trump currently stand.Enjoy the show!

  • Why China Wants You to Drive an EV

    18:35
    China’s economy is struggling: Many young people can't find jobs, the nation’s real estate market is in trouble after two major property development companies failed, and China's stock market has seen a $7 trillion decline in just a few years. But Beijing has a plan to do something about it.When the “green energy” movement began, China recognized an opportunity, Erin Walsh explains. Beijing saw an “opening because they don't have oil, so they had to come up with something else,” said Walsh, senior research fellow for international affairs in the Asian Studies Center at The Heritage Foundation. “Because, how do you electrify and grow, and become No. 1 in the world, which is their goal; how do you do that if you don't have energy,” she asked. (The Daily Signal is the news outlet of The Heritage Foundation.) China has “hijacked the agenda” of the green movement, because the Asian giant is on the forefront of developing electric vehicles, batteries and solar energy, according to Walsh. Walsh joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to explain the factors that have led to China’s economic challenges and how Beijing is seeking to overcome its economic woes by further dominating the energy market. Enjoy the show!

  • Texas vs. Biden: Lone Star State’s Battle to Secure the Border

    20:44
    When it became increasingly clear that the federal government was not going to stop the flow of illegal aliens across the border, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott began taking strategic action. “You look at the results, and they speak for themselves,” Brent Smith says of what Abbott has done to slow the flood of illegal crossings.  Smith serves as the county attorney for Kinney County, Texas, which borders Mexico and is about 130 miles west of San Antonio. Because of the enormous influx of illegal aliens crossing the border, Smith says, “Everything has changed” in his community. “People now, when you hear a helicopter flying in the air, kids know to run home,” Smith said. “And if you hear sirens, 99% of the time, it has to do with illegal immigration.”Even schools have "military barriers around them" to prevent smugglers from driving through the campus, he added. The county attorney also said his workload has multiplied many times over as frequent arrests of illegal aliens are made in the county. According to Smith, “preventing the entry, repelling them at the river” is the way to address the crisis. That's what Abbott has done in Eagle Pass, Texas, at Shelby Park. Under Abbott’s leadership, the Texas National Guard is preventing the Border Patrol from processing illegal aliens in Shelby Park, which is on the Rio Grande and which served as a popular crossing point until Texas assumed control of it.  The Texas National Guard has laid concertina wire fencing along the riverbank and built a 4,500-foot border wall using shipping containers topped with sharp razor wire to repel illegal crossings. Because crossings into Shelby Park have fallen to almost none, Smith says, Abbott will likely “expand the tactic that he's using in Shelby Park to other places.” Meanwhile, the Biden administration has been critical of Abbott’s recent tactics and has previously taken legal action against the governor's efforts to secure the border. Smith joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to explain the ongoing legal tensions between Texas and the federal government, and what could be next as the border crisis continues to unfold. Enjoy the show!
