Mayor Pete Buttigieg Vetoes Women's Care Center

A panel discussion on South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg's veto of a zoning change that would have permitted a counseling center to open next to an abortion clinic. The participants include host Peter Helland, Pastor Mario Sims, Pastor Grayland Watson, and E.Michael Jones, editor of Culture Wars magazine.

On April 28th Mayor Buttigieg, vetoed the common council's decision to grant the Women's Care Center a rezoning permit, saying, "This is one of the hardest decisions that I've ever made in this job." His decision has upset many right to life Christians in the Michiana area. The proposed Women's Care Center is located next to the new abortion clinic on South Bend's poorer West Side. The Center's outreach is especially meant to minister to the poorer minorities suffering from unwanted pregnancies. If one of the three African-American women on the common council changes her vote, the mayor's veto will be overruled.

Development Economics vs. the Washington Consensus

E. Michael Jones returns to Our Interesting Times to discuss his articles "Julius Nyerere and the Heart of Darkness" and "Crisis in the Maryknoll Missionary Order." We talk about the collapse of development economics and how the example of the missionary work of the Jesuits in the New World perhaps offers an alternative model to the current usurious neo-liberal Washington consensus.
