CURE America with Star Parker

CURE America with Star Parker

More than fifty years after the Civil Rights movement and nearly 160 years after the Civil War, racial tension in the country is at an all-time high. Riots, police reform, and racial equity are all topics of national debate. Syndicated columnist and author of four books analyzing government impact on poverty in our urban communities, Star Parker, delves deep into national issues that impact America’s most distressed communities and the power and political will needed to fix them. This is a podcast of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education, a non-profit think tank fighting poverty and restoring dignity through scholarship supporting faith, freedom, and personal responsibility.

Now that the U.S. Supreme Court has removed national abortion law, the Left is in full swing with a myriad of tactics to continue their campaign against the sanctity of unborn life. One of the more insidious tactics, that has long been flying under the radar, is abortion pills.

Distinct from contraception or morning after pills, these pills are not just responsible for killing millions of unborn life, as if that wasn’t enough. T...

Why are Americans having to pay more for everything right now? More importantly: Are things on the road to getting better – or are they on the road to getting much worse?

This week, Star Parker sits down with EJ Antoni, research fellow for Regional Economics in the Center for Data Analysis at the Heritage Foundation, to answer these very questions, as well as many more, such as: should I pay down my credit card debt? What is hap...

On this episode of CURE America with Star Parker, we talk about one of the greatest issues facing our nation – the collapse of Social Security.

There is a lack of foresight, or maybe a lack of understanding priorities, as the Left in Congress continues to waste time on political games and carnival shows, when they should be legislating on real issues.

To talk about this issue, we are joined today by Rachel Greszler, research fellow...

Suddenly, America has found itself entering the Summer with gun control leading the national debate. Last week, the Left controlled U.S. House of Representatives passed gun control legislation, and the Senate is currently discussing its own proposals. Matters regarding “ghost guns,” red flag laws, background checks, and more, dominate many discussions in Washington, D.C. With this long list, as well as the various stories and talk...

In a nation that is tearing itself apart over race, trying to speak honestly about the state of black America is a perilous task. Candor and thoughtfulness are often drowned by hysteria, expediency, and sentimentalism. 

That's why, this week on Power, Poverty & Politics with Star Parker, we're joined by Dr. William B. Allen to discuss CURE's recent publication, "The State of Black America." We're also...

Our American compassion, our moral compass, has gone awry. A child growing up in America today looks around and finds himself or herself in a nation where debt is larger than the entire economy, and still growing. But just as inflation shows that the costs of fiscal irresponsibility cannot be hidden, so the costs of teaching our youth that personal responsibility is irrelevant cannot be hidden. It manifests in the destructive behav...

“Our nation, too, has a legacy of evil with which it must deal. The glory of this land has been its capacity for transcending the moral evils of our past.” President Reagan spoke these words in March 1983, a speech which he famously called the Soviet Union the “evil empire.” But as we see the Russia of today attempt to retread its past, a perspective is gained when we refocus on what is going on in our own country. In fact, that re...

To answer the question of why we have Black History Month, we must first understand Black history.   Every conversation of Black history of course includes the saga of slavery, but it must also include the story of sin. We must not neglect our founding principles and the truth of man and our Creator in our history. In doing so, far too many today distort the lessons of our history for their own gain. But when we look at the full tr...

The job of our Federal Reserve Board of Governors is quite simple – to supervise a smooth-running economy and banking system. Biden’s latest radical nominee sees her role as more prophetic. Sarah Bloom Raskin represents another attempt to use the government to pick winners and losers in our economy. Despite what the Left thinks, it’s not the job of our government to decide which industries will flourish and which will fail. It is t...
