Rockets are being fired from Gaza, Israel is responding with strikes, and there are riots on the Temple Mount - but no clear answers or context on the situation. In this episode, Dan unpacks the situation and provides key context to better understand the ongoing Israel-Hamas conflict.
The pipeline is back on line but millions of Americans are still running on empty and struggling to find gas. In this episode Dan discusses the Colonial Pipeline shut down, the Biden Administration's callous response that if people drove electric vehicles it wouldn't be a problem, and the real concerns of cyber security vulnerabilities on the American way of life.
Jonah Goldberg returns! Dan and Jonah discuss their agreements - and disagreements - on all of the important questions facing the conservative movement today. Is Congress working as intended? Who are the real DC swamp creatures? What does modern conservatism even mean? Jonah Goldberg holds the Asness Chair in Applied Liberty at the American Enterprise Institute, he is the editor-in-chief of The Dispatch, and host of the podcast series “The Remnant with Jonah Goldberg.” Follow Jonah on Twitter at @JonahDispatch.
Tara and Dan Crenshaw give an update on Dan's recovery following emergency surgery to repair his detaching retina, and share the story of how it all began with the IED blast in 2012 which set them on this journey.
While the Indo-Pacific and the Middle East dominate our foreign policy debates, Latin America often seems to be an afterthought. The Heritage Foundation's Ana Quintana joins Dan for a look into the conflicts and geopolitics shaping modern Latin America, the symbiotic relationship between the cartels and the Mexican government, what's motivating Mexican President Obrador, the situation in Northern Triangle countries, and what can be learned from Colombia's transition from infamy to prosperity. Ana Quintana is a Senior Policy Analyst for Latin America and Western Hemisphere at the Heritage Foundation and previously a National Security Fellow at Foundation for Defense of Democracies and a Fellow at the National Endowment for Democracy. She is a board member for the Strategic Intelligence Program at Patrick Henry College.
‪The woke mob currently running the Democrat Party can't directly censor conservative speech, but can they bully big tech into doing it for them? That was the question Dan focused on with witnesses Mark Zuckerberg and Jack Dorsey at a recent Energy & Commerce Committee hearing on social media and censorship. Dan expands on his conversation with the two tech CEOs and looks at the growing acceptance of censorship in our culture, the critical difference between how Republicans and Democrats approach regulating big tech, and why corporations absolutely must - for the sake of our 1st Amendment - stand up to the woke mob.‬ Hold These Truths | Bonus Episode 6 Watch on YouTube: https://youtu.be/CkS3aGNI9-w
We take a deep dive into everything you need to know about housing policy in America - and we promise it's interesting. The San Francisco housing crisis, NYC rent controls, the COVID-era eviction moratoriums, lumber trade wars, millennials stuck in their parents' homes and so much more. We cover it all with urban housing policy expert Howard Husock. Howard Husock is an adjunct scholar in Domestic Policy Studies at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), where he focuses on local government, civil society, and urban housing policy. He is concurrently an executive senior fellow with the Philanthropy Roundtable. His books include “Who Killed Civil Society? The Rise of Big Government and Decline of Bourgeois Norms”, “Philanthropy Under Fire”, and “America’s Trillion-Dollar Housing Mistake: The Failure of American Housing Policy”.

The CLEAN Future Act, the Democrats' legislative agenda to implement the principles of the Green New Deal, which includes "net zero" emissions, "transitioning" energy jobs, and "temporarily" banning plastic production, would in reality make electricity more expensive, erase millions of American energy jobs, shift manufacturing of critical medical devices to China, and, under the best case scenario, reduce carbon emissions by only a few percent. To help us understand why, Dan breaks down his Q&A session with the Democrats' expert witnesses on the CLEAN Future Act at an Energy & Commerce Committee hearing on March 24.
How is it possible that simple infrastructure proposals, such as installing a telephone pole, can get blocked by five year long environmental impact studies? The answer goes way beyond "government bureaucrats." Radical environmental groups and trial lawyers have made a billion dollar industry out of weak science and questionable regulations which, in the end, have no environmental benefits and make our lives miserable. To help us understand how we got to this point, and how much worse it could get under the Biden Administration, we're joined by Mandy Gunasekara. Mandy is an environmental lawyer who served as Chief of Staff at the Environmental Protection Agency under President Trump. She is the founder of Energy 45, a non-profit educational organization dedicated to informing the public about recent environmental and economic gains. Follow Mandy on Twitter at @MississippiMG.
The military, like everything else in society, is becoming politicized. Critical race theory, taxpayer-funded gender reassignment surgeries, unconscious bias training, and more priorities of the far left are radically reshaping it. It's time for our leaders in the Armed Forces to push back against the wokeism, because America's national security depends on its military maintaining a mission-focused, merit-based system of operations. To help us with this conversation, we're joined by Congressman Michael Waltz. He's a Green Beret who has served his country his entire life. He graduated from the Virginia Military Institute, served over 24 years in the U.S. Army, and is presently serving in the National Guard. After being commissioned as an Army lieutenant, Mike graduated Ranger School and was then selected for the elite Green Berets, serving worldwide as a decorated Special Forces officer with multiple combat tours in Afghanistan, the Middle East and Africa. For his actions in combat, Mike was awarded 4 Bronze Stars and 2 with valor. He is the first Green Beret to be elected to Congress. Follow Mike on Twitter at @michaelgwaltz.
In the aftermath of February’s winter freeze, the big debate is whether or not the Texas energy grid would have been better off if it was federally regulated and connected to the national grid. We explore those questions and more with returning guest Neil Chatterjee, former Chairman and current Commissioner of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. Commissioner Chatterjee was nominated to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission by President Donald J. Trump in May 2017 and confirmed by the U.S. Senate in August 2017. He served as Chairman from August 2017 to December 2017 and was again named Chairman on October 24, 2018 to November 5, 2020. Follow him on Twitter at @FERChatterjee.

He is now a Visiting Fellow at The Heritage Foundation.
Scott Newgent is a transgender man and the founder of TReVoices, an organization working with governments around the world to develop laws and guidelines which inform and protect individuals who are considering gender reassignment surgery. We talk about Scott's near-death experience with medically transitioning, the industry and ideology that is influencing LGBT adults and children to medically transition, and the how that ideology is attempting to radically change our politics, sports, military, and culture.

If we want something done at the federal level, make voting day a federal paid holiday. Otherwise, put pressure on states to solidify their voting process.

Dan, thanks for this show. I've been waiting for this discussion. After listening to Canyon's constant rebuttal, I'm convinced, forget modifying 230, get out of the way, let market forces control. Then we work on influencing the market and making the conservative voices influence the platforms with increased social pressure. The numbers don't lie, half the country, and more, still support the constitution and free speech. Shapiro had a good argument about how the noisy 10% have punch above their weight in influencing social norms and corporate policy..

The ONLY reason the general public heard about the New York Post story was because Twitter is garbage and stupid and disorganized, and the SJW'S that work there are not very good at being smart❤️

The show intro sounds a little too much like a ritualistic cult chant. Consider changing it up with a musical score. The

"justice is not coming" so cynical. there are things here that need to be said and acknowledged. but also things that are dead wrong and shortsighted. but what really bothers me is the tone of the conversation. i might call it the "insiders tone". it's characterized by the complete lack of push back, of productive opposition. so the " conversation" is an exercise in sycophancy, and upon distribution is little more than propaganda or a press release. note that there are no real "solutions" put forward, nor any discussion of the nature of the problem outside of a tightly defined playing field. conservatism is good. fine. everyone else is engaged in a "shakedown" . so there is no room for dissent. "we" are totally good. " they"are totally corrupt. its zero sum. its a recipe for domination, not development.
