Ep. 32: American Division, Tariffs, Immigration, and Guns with Michael Johns

Americans are divided as ever. We are unwilling to listen to those with whom we disagree, even if they are in our same “party.” In Episode 32, Michael Johns (Co-Founder of the Tea Party Movement and Former Presidential Speechwriter) and I break down the causes. Michael explains how Congressional leadership has demonized dissent and why we should have listened to George Washington and stayed away from the two-party system. We also consider a few solutions: term limits, transparency, and more.

In addition, we cover controversial policy topics such as immigration, trade, and gun control. Michael describes how he thinks a trade war might pan out for Americans, how DACA has been used as a political tool, and why the law is not a sufficient deterrent to criminals.

Be sure to tune in for a thought-provoking episode.

Ep. 28: In-Depth on Immigration

In this episode, I analyze the White House’s immigration plan. We go in-depth on the research and data behind Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), family-based migration, catch and release, and more. I cover immigration trends and how removals and detentions have shifted under the Trump Administration. Another important immigration topic is the movement of illicit drugs into the country from Mexico and China.

Ep. 15: The RAISE Act Pt. 1

I discuss Section Two of Senate Bill 354, the “Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment Act” or the “Raise Act.” This section eliminates the Diversity Visa Program, which was established under the Immigration and Nationality Act. I analyze the details of the Diversity Visa Program, its history, and the arguments for and against it. This episode is good for anyone curious about how the RAISE Act will change the United States’ immigration system. … More Ep. 15: The RAISE Act Pt. 1
