Krasner Cries, Will It Change Anything?

Today, Dom leads off the Dom Giordano Program by ranting against the continued rise in crime after District Attorney Larry Krasner broke down while announcing the passing of both a pregnant woman and her child after being shot in Philadelphia. Giordano plays back the clip of Krasner in yesterday’s press conference, and wonders where the tears come from. Giordano and producer Dan make note of the impact of such a horrific crime, but Giordano suggests that Krasner still refuses to feel the negative impact that his radical policies have had on Philadelphia. Then, Giordano brings the discussion back to a common theme throughout the week, that being national anthem protests, after a Penn assistant coach penned a column justifying the teams decision to continue protesting through the anthem.
Giordano tells of James Maguire, head of the Maguire Foundation, who noted in an Inquirer story that he will withhold funding from local universities if they choose to protest the anthem.

Then, Speaker Newt Gingrich returns to the Dom Giordano Program to discuss and promote his new book, Beyond Biden: Rebuilding the America We Love. First, Gingrich tells why Biden’s presidency is a detour rather than a sharp turn, explaining that people will demand bold change, returning us to our true values as a country. Then, Giordano asks Gingrich about his ‘Contract with America’ that he produced while in office, which was an agenda advocated by conservatives hoping to preserve traditionalism, and how those values could be propagated in today’s political environment.

Catholic League’s Bill Donohue on Biden’s Take on Gender Equity

Bill Donohue, President of the Catholic League, joins the Dom Giordano Program to lead off the second hour. First, Donohue and Giordano discuss a column that Donohue penned focusing on Biden’s treatment of gender equity while in office, writing about Biden’s proposed ‘National Strategy on Gender Equity and Equality.’ Donohue writes that the new document is the most sexist statement ever written by a presidential administration. Donohue throughout the column stresses the importance of masculinity, and expounds on the issue to Dom Giordano. Then, Giordano asks for Donohue’s thoughts on whether Biden should be able to receive communion based on his continued pro-abortion stance. Finally, Giordano and Donohue discuss his new book, The Truth About Clergy Sexual Abuse: Clarifying the Facts and the Causes, which focuses on the sexual abuse within the Catholic church, explaining underlying causes that lead to the controversy.

Then, Giordano delves into the Tucker Carlson interview with Kyle Rittenhouse yesterday, playing back clips from the interview. First, Giordano focuses on comments made by Rittenhouse about famed attorney Lin Wood, who Rittenhouse alleges took close to $2 million after raising funds for bail. Then, Giordano discusses how the trial was framed, bringing forward Rittenhouse’s comments about the trial framed through the lens of race. In addition, Giordano asks listeners who they would like to see interview Kyle Rittenhouse, and producer Dan plays back clips of UK leader Boris Johnson, who discusses policy through the world of Peppa Pig.

California Liberals Take Umbrage with the Use of “Looting” to Describe Mass Robberies

To lead off today’s third hour, Dom Giordano focuses on an issue playing out in San Francisco, as local authorities try and combat a rise in mass organized robbery. First, Giordano discusses the lexicon surrounding terms used to describe the incident, playing back a clip from Los Angeles’s ABC station, in which they took time to clarify why the robbers should not be referred to as ‘looters.’ Dom takes umbrage with the report, telling the words we use should not be the top priority in reporting the incident. Then, Giordano switches back to his criticism of local universities who continue to protest the national anthem. After that, Giordano heads back to a conversation centered around the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, playing back a clip of Stephen Colbert suggesting that we change the law since Rittenhouse was found innocent.
