Friends, this week's Newsmaker Show covers a lot of ground, as they all do. We consider, for instance, Truman's surprising victory over Dewey in 1948, and what it suggests about the reliability of polls and election forecasts. We also explore a curious incident in the Soviet war in Afghanistan that killed, amazingly, 3,000 Red Army soldiers. Naturally, though, we are overwhelmingly focused on current events, since there are so many events currently eventuating. We look at the state of the midterms, just one week away from electoral D-Day. We ask whether Elon Musk's stewardship of Twitter will work out well, for Musk, for Twitter, and most importantly for America. We also look at China's slide into ossified one-man rule, and what it portends for the 21st century, writ large. All this...and more! You'd be bonkers not to tune in.
In other news, homeschooling continues to grow as a movement and a phenomenon, but it still impacts only around 3% of U.S. K-12 students. There's a lot of room there for more expansion, in other words. One wonders when the teachers' unions will swing into action to nip homeschooling in the bud -- and when the woke industrial complex will make demonizing homeschooling parents a top priority...
Social media censorship is troubling enough, in itself, but when the federal government administers those censorship campaigns -- in the interests of the ruling class -- Americans should be very troubled. We're learning more and more about how this Big Tech-Biden Administration collusion works. Presumably, when Republicans take control of Congress, we'll truly get to the bottom of it. Luckily, social media companies seem to be rethinking their shameless advocacy of wokeness and progressivism. They're clearly afraid of a backlash. They should be, too!
