Kamala Harris continues to make nonsensical claims related to climate change. This time, she claims that climate change is leading to increased illegal immigration. Kamala states that food shortages are causing people to flee their native countries. Unfortunately for Kamala, food production is setting records year after year worldwide. Claiming people are starving when crop yields are higher than ever highlights the delusion behind climate alarmism. James Taylor and Myron Ebell join The Chris Salcedo Show on Newsmax to correct Kamala Harris and set the record straight. Subscribe to Newsmax TV on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/NewsmaxtvLive

Congress is preparing to revamp health care with either a “public option” or a reduced age to qualify for Medicare. Melissa Davert shares why this move will be to the detriment of those with significant health care needs. Davert and her college-aged, twin children have osteogenesis imperfecta, a condition that makes bones fragile, causes heart and spine issues, and short stature. Her husband has cerebral palsy. Despite these health issues, every family member works or attends college. Due to their unique situation, the Daverts seeks reasonably priced health care through the private market, something they had before Obamacare took effect. Melissa discusses lifetime savings accounts, high-risk pools and “centers of excellence,” or a Medicare Advantage-type plan, as better ways to cover their needs than Medicaid. Due to government intrusion in health care, Medicaid seems to be one of the few choices her children have left. The family wants to work and save for the future, but under Medicaid, they are restricted from acquiring assets. The current system also makes their physicians go through hoops to get approval from insurance for treatment. Host AnneMarie Schieber met the Daverts in 2014 when Obamacare went into effect. At the time, the family had to scramble to find care for the insurance Obamacare nullified. That video can be seen here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=ShDg7uUx_dY Melissa’s situation was also profiled in a report by the Republican Study Committee in 2019. www.heartland.org/news-opinion/new…health-care-plan

The government The Founding Fathers envisioned was a force for good. Its limited role was to protect life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. If alive today, they would balk at what our government has become. Rampant government intervention seen today skews markets and limits the freedom of the individual. H. Sterling Burnett joins the Great Talks With podcast to describe how The Heartland Institute discovers, develops, and promotes free-market solutions to social and economic problems; fighting back against big government. Find out how the free market has helped accelerate the economic development of western democracies in this podcast.

In our third in this series, streamed live on Thursday, June 3 at 4:00 p.m. ET, Heartland Institute Senior Fellow Anthony Watts, publisher of the Watts Up With That site, gave a sneak peek of his Las Vegas presentation. In this preview, Watts discussed the “Climate Emergency” presented by climate activists. Watts has investigated the evidence and will illustrate why there’s no need to fear the moderate warming we’ve seen in the last century, and why claims of worsening weather, drought, and hurricanes are overblown hype.
