The Electoral College Didn’t Protect Slavery

October 26 2020

Good morning from Washington, where the nation's founding and institutions are under assault from the left. Sean Parnell takes on the false linking of the Electoral College to slavery, while Dennis Prager debunks some other egregious lies about our nation. On the podcast, author Ralph Bayrer discusses how Americans can defend freedom. Plus: Twitter gets ugly over the president's "coyote" reference; teenagers' disturbing turn from faith; and more ammo for a rap star's welcome questioning of leftist orthodoxy. On this date in 2001, President George W. Bush signs the Patriot Act, intended to strengthen America's ability to counter terrorism after the attacks on the Pentagon and World Trade Center the previous month.
