Kathryn Joyce is an investigative reporter at Salon, and the author of two books: "The Child Catchers: Rescue, Trafficking and the New Gospel of Adoption" and "Quiverfull: Inside the Christian Patriarchy Movement.
Ms. Joyce discusses her latest project, a three-part series about Hillsdale Christian College who has as its goal the dismantling of public education in the US. Many of its graduates are at the Heritage Foundation, and were in the Trump administration, part of its 1776 Commission with the goal of pushing charter schools, heavy on western civilization. This is a coordinated movement across the US to siphon money from public education, to dominate US education, in order to win the country back by using teaching as our weapon.
We talk with Lily Geismer, author of Left Behind: The Democrats Failed Attempt to Solve Inequality. We discuss the rise of the New Democrats, and how they became more beholden to bankers and other business interests, rather than the peoples interests. This led to restricting the social welfare state, in favor of a public-private partnership that did not help ordinary Americans. One of the most profound changes was the revocation of the Glass-Spiegel Act, which led to the financial abuses of the 1990s.
