  • Why Hamas Is to Blame for Gaza Famine

    20:22
    A Columbia University professor says Hamas is responsible for the ongoing famine in Gaza. “It is in Hamas' interest, as they have defined it, to actually create a situation of misery and starvation, rather than worrying about its population and making sure that its population stays safe,” according to Awi Federgruen, a professor at the Columbia University Graduate School of Business and a global supply chain expert. The United Nations says there is a “full-blown famine” in northern Gaza, which has led to additional pressure on Israel to allow more aid into the region, but Federgruen says the problem lies more in the aid not reaching the people it is intended to help.“A quick analysis shows that the amount of food that is coming in from Israel is absolutely plentiful to feed every single individual that lives in Gaza,” the professor says. In recent weeks, Federgruen says, food truck deliveries were slowed because “Hamas has chosen to send its rockets specifically to the crossings.” Federgruen joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to unpack what is known about the food shortage in Gaza, and Hamas' role in blocking civilian aid. He also discusses the continued fallout from weeks of anti-Israel protests at Columbia University. Enjoy the show!

  • How Taiwan’s New President May Change His Country’s Tense Relationship With China

    20:39
    F-16s flew overhead, marching bands played, and singers entertained with cultural performances during Taiwan’s presidential inauguration on Monday. The inauguration of President Lai Ching-te was “quite the party,” Asia analyst Michael Cunningham tells “The Daily Signal Podcast,” after attending the event in Taiwan. The new president has a challenging job in front of him as the country continues to face threats of hostility from China. Lai’s inaugural speech was overall “probably the most direct and the hardest-line inaugural address we've seen towards China yet,” says Cunningham, who serves as a research fellow in The Heritage Foundation’s Asian Studies Center. (Heritage founded The Daily Signal in 2014.)The new president likely angered leaders in Beijing, according to Cunningham, when during the speech he said the Republic of China—Taiwan—and the People's Republic of China are “not subordinate to each other.” While Cunningham calls this statement “common sense,” it is also “not something that you say generally if you're the president of Taiwan” because China interprets this as a “two-China philosophy,” when China actually considers Taiwan a part of the mainland.Ultimately, Cunningham says Lai is expected to seek to preserve the status quo between China and Taiwan.Cunningham joins the show to discuss where the relationship between China and Taiwan stands and whether America’s relationship with Taiwan is expected to change under Lai’s presidency.Enjoy the show!

  • A Mother's Story: Her Daughter Was Harassed By a Boy on the Girls’ Team

    23:20
    Abby Cross and her husband went to the leadership of their daughter’s Bridgeport, West Virginia, middle school with concerns over a biological male competing alongside their daughter in athletics.“Nothing changed” for their daughter following the conversation, Cross says. Adaleia Cross, her mom says, has always loved sports and was excited to be a part of her middle-school track and field team. But with a biological male competing alongside her, Adaleia not only began losing opportunities to compete because of the male student outperforming her, but also was subject to harassment at the hands of the student—even sexual harassment. “To make matters worse and more insulting,” her mother explained that “besides the sexual harassment, this student was saying things like, ‘You have more testosterone than I do, and I'm still beating you,’ which is just incredibly insulting.” Unfortunately, Adaleia is a part of an ever-growing group of young women who have lost out on sports opportunities because of boys and men entering girls' and women’s sports, who have been subjected to having to share locker rooms with males, and have even facied harassment from males who identify as females.Now, women across the nation are facing a similar risk thanks to a Biden administration rule change to Title IX set to take effect Aug. 1. The Biden administration has rewritten the definition of sex in Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 to include gender identity and sexual orientation. The change swings the door wide open for males to enter female-only spaces and compete in girls' and women’s sports. A number of lawsuits have been filed since the Biden administration officially announced the new rule, including one by the conservative legal nonprofit Alliance Defending Freedom. Alliance Defending Freedom is working to block the Title IX rule change on behalf of women and girls such as Adaleia Cross, and ADF attorney Rachel Rouleau says she is “very hopeful that this rule will be stayed and won't go into effect on [Aug. 1], at least while the litigation in these cases goes on.” Abby Cross and Rouleau join “The Daily Signal Podcast” to share Adaleia’s story and to discuss where the lawsuits to stop the Title IX rule change stand. Enjoy the show!

  • Corey DeAngelis: School Choice and the 'Parent Revolution'

    29:52
    There’s a war being waged for America’s elementary, middle, and high school students. But the leftist agenda-driven campaign that began behind the closed doors of teachers unions and government-run schools is now out in the open and has led to a “parent revolution,” says Corey DeAngelis. The "teachers unions overplayed their hand and awakened a sleeping giant, which happens to be parents who want more of a say in their kids' education," says DeAngelis, author of “The Parent Revolution: Rescuing Your Kids from the Radicals Ruining Our Schools.”  DeAngelis—sometimes referred to as the "school choice evangelist"—dedicated his new book to "Randi Weingarten [president of the American Federation of Teachers] and the teachers unions for inadvertently doing more to advance school choice and homeschooling than anyone could have ever imagined."School choice programs, which give parents the opportunity to use their tax dollars to send their children to a private school or even to homeschool them, are restoring parents' power over their children’s education. Already, states across America are embracing school choice. "We now have 11 states with universal school choice," DeAngelis says, adding the programs are a fulfillment of the late Nobel Prize-winning economist "Milton Friedman's vision for all families" to have choice over their children's education.DeAngelis, a senior fellow at the American Federation for Children and a visiting fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, and Jason Bedrick, a research fellow in the Center for Education Policy at The Heritage Foundation, join “The Daily Signal Podcast” to discuss why school choice programs are a rising tide that will lift all of America’s education system. (Heritage founded the Daily Signal in 2014.)Enjoy the show!
