This week two stories have dominating the news cycle. First, the Democratic Party’s strategy to vilify conservatives and strengthen its hold on the women’s vote now includes the now up-for-renewal Violence Against Women Act. Second, this week federal officials issued permits to the Arapaho Indian Nation to kill two American Bald Eagles for religious ceremonial reasons, reversing over 30 years of administrative rulings against killing of the formerly endangered raptor. Listen in as the In the Public Square Team discusses these two incongruous stories and shows how they are related at a deeper level. After discussing the politics, cynical misrepresentations and double standards of both stories, see how both exercises of power are identical expression of the overreaching abuse of Federal power.
