    Architects of Woke: Chapo Trap House & the Marxist Vanguards for Alienated Millennials

    Let me tell you about a podcasting phenomenon. A show that, within three years, grows from lo-fi youtube live stream into the most popular podcast on Patreon, a million-dollar behemoth with over 100 thousand listeners per episode, that sells out live shows all over the world, and secures endorsements from celebrity comedians and journalists. What does this vital new voice have to say? Welcome to the world of Chapo Trap House. Birthed during the 2016 primary battle by three twitter friends, bonded by an enthusiasm for Bernie Sanders, Chapo updates the socialist manifesto for alienated millennials. Its tenets: Jobs are evil. Entrepreneurs are hucksters. You are owed a life of…

    Research Snapshot: Jamila Michener

    The main thing that I wanted to show in the book was that social policies like Medicaid are very different in different places. There are places where as a Medicaid beneficiary you can have access to a generous program that allows you to see doctors, to get your health care needs met, and to do so with relatively little fanfare, and there are other places where it’s very difficult if not impossible to get care and to gain access. And that difference is determined by policy and it means the world for Medicaid beneficiaries, and it also means a lot for how they think about politics and government. One of…

    Does the NSA Violate Your Constitutional Rights? | Learn Liberty

    Many people don’t know what their constitutional freedoms are or why they have them in the first place. They’ve gotten so used to the freedoms they’ve enjoyed as Americans that they haven’t noticed just how rare and fragile they really are. Before America’s founding, the British king George III would issue what were called general warrants, which empowered local authorities to look for wrongdoing anywhere and to use their discretion to find any kind of treasonous behavior, including among the people that would come to be our Founders. But this became such an abuse of dictatorial authority that after the Revolutionary War a prohibition on general warrants was written right…

    The Federalist Papers | Federalist No. 45

    FEDERALIST No. 45. The Alleged Danger From the Powers of the Union to the State Governments. Considered For the Independent Journal. Saturday, January 26, 1788 MADISON To the People of the State of New York: HAVING shown that no one of the powers transferred to the federal government is unnecessary or improper, the next question to be considered is, whether the whole mass of them will be dangerous to the portion of authority left in the several States. The adversaries to the plan of the convention, instead of considering in the first place what degree of power was absolutely necessary for the purposes of the federal government, have exhausted themselves…

    The Federalist Papers | Federalist No. 41

    FEDERALIST No. 41. General View of the Powers Conferred by The Constitution For the Independent Journal. Saturday, January 19, 1788 MADISON To the People of the State of New York: THE Constitution proposed by the convention may be considered under two general points of view. The FIRST relates to the sum or quantity of power which it vests in the government, including the restraints imposed on the States. The SECOND, to the particular structure of the government, and the distribution of this power among its several branches. Under the FIRST view of the subject, two important questions arise: 1. Whether any part of the powers transferred to the general government…

    Globalization and the law – Justice Antonin Scalia (2009)

    I’m happy to be here at the American Academy partly because I think so highly of the American Academy. All the more highly since I’ve seen it in operation in the time I’ve been here. But also because I was a personal friend of Lloyd Cutler and I’m happy to play a part in honoring him. He was indeed the last of the lawyers movers and shakers in Washington. I think we miss so that kind of person. I have to preface my remarks by stating the obvious that the views I express are not necessarily those of the government of the United States. I speak as a legal scholar…

    Government of Australia

    The Government of the Commonwealth of Australia, also referred to as the Australian Government, Commonwealth Government or the Federal Government is the federal democratic administrative authority of Australia. The Commonwealth of Australia, a federal constitutional monarchy under a parliamentary democracy, was formed in 1901 as a result of an agreement among six self-governing British colonies, which became the six states. The terms of this contract are embodied in the Australian Constitution, which was drawn up at a Constitutional Convention and ratified by the people of the colonies at referendums. The structure of the Australian Government may be examined in light of two distinct concepts, namely federalism and the separation of…

    Adam Ruins Everything – How America Created the “Model Minority” Myth | truTV

    Boy, I’m sure glad we left the pool party, Trey. Math homework is way more fun! Computer, that’s the first thing you’ve ever said that doesn’t add up. (canned laughter) You’re so studious, Computer. Trey, you could learn a thing or two from his people. They’re very wise. (canned laughter) Whoa, time out! (whistle blowing) Here we go again! TV and movies are rampant with Asian stereotypes. Especially the idea that Asian people are some kind of “model minority.” Smart, successful, polite, obedient, and of course, inherently good at math. What’s the big deal? Those are all compliments. Well, these “compliments” actually originated in a government propaganda campaign. And not…
