Ep. 133: Heather MacDonald and Judge Jeanine Pirro.
First Heather MacDonald, (the Thomas W. Smith Fellow at the Manhattan Institute and Contributing Editor at City Journal), discusses why America is in crisis, from the universities to the workplace. From her new book The Diversity Delusion: How Race and Gender Pandering Corrupt the University and Undermine Our CultureoxicHeather discusses how toxic ideas first spread by higher education have undermined humanistic values, fueled intolerance, and widened divisions in our larger culture. Chaucer, Shakespeare, and Milton? Oppressive. American history? Tyranny. Professors correcting grammar and spelling, or employers hiring by merit? Racist and sexist. Students emerge into the working world believing that human beings are defined by their skin color, gender, and sexual preference and that oppression based on these characteristics is the American experience. Speech that challenges these campus orthodoxies is silenced with brute force. Not only is this impacting our culture, but also our competitiveness as countries such as China and India who don't assign such priorities will hire the best scientists and doctors, and are making gains in curing diseases and societal ills.

Then Judge Jeanine Pirro (former judge, prosecutor, politician and the host of Fox News Channel's Justice with Judge Jeanine)calls in to discuss the "dark forces that seek to obstruct and undermine the president, their ultimate goal to reverse the results of the 2016 presidential election". Judge Pirro first discusses how civil discourse is missing from our culture, including her recent experience on the television show The View, where Whoopi Goldberg had some choice words. Then Judge Pirro discusses why she is not optimistic that the FBI, DOJ and other institutions will be held to account for their attempt to alter the 2016 election, what is happening with the Mueller investigation and she answers a couple of Ricochet member questions.
