Interview with Mark Perry

Canada's History

This interview is part of a special series of the Teaching Canada's History podcast where we spoke with the finalists for the 2021 Governor General's History Award for Excellence in Teaching.For over ten years, teacher Mark Perry has led students of various grades (1, 5, 11, and 12) in four different schools in the Kennebecasis Valley, New Brunswick, in a commemorative project called "The Kennebecasis Valley Remembers." The students have uncovered thousands of primary documents and have video-interviewed over sixty Second World War veterans to write five books, of which three have been published, and to produce several documentary films. These products detail historical accounts and the biographies of over 180 people from New Brunswick and the greater Wabanaki Territory. This work has been used by university students and University of New Brunswick historians as they have conducted their own research on the stories of New Brunswick. The present focus is on the development of biographies of veterans of the Wabanaki Nations: the Mi'kmaq, Wolastoqiyik, and Peskotomuhkatiyik.To learn more about the Governor General's History Awards or to nominate a teacher in your community, visit CanadasHistory.ca/Awards.

The Scott Horton Show - Mark Perry on the Pentagon’s Latest Corporate Welfare Boondoggle

Liberty.me Studio

Mark Perry discusses the bizarre case of the Stryker, a vehicle used by the U.S. army to transport infantry troops to the battlefield. The Stryker, Perry explains, is a deathtrap: it isn’t heavily armored enough to stand up to real combat, it rolls over easily and it can’t withstand IEDs or tank rounds. What’s more, everyone seems to know this. And yet the Pentagon is spending nearly a billion dollars on a new contract, not to give the Stryker better armor, but to put machine guns on it. Perry describes this as putting a tourniquet on the wrong part of the body, and is emblematic of the kind of wasteful spending that has been draining America’s treasury and putting lives at risk for decades.Discussed on the show:“The Stryker is a ‘deathtrap’ but you’re paying for it anyway” (Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft)“The Outpost (2019)” (IMDb)“The Pentagon Wars (TV Movie 1998)” (IMDb)Mark Perry is the author of Talking to Terrorists: Why America Must Engage with its Enemies, The Most Dangerous Man in America: The Making of Douglas MacArthur, and The Pentagon’s Wars.

Mark Perry

Their Life Story

With a dozen album's to his name and a new one coming one coming out soon Mark has been the foundation for music in the Bulkley Valley and beyond for decades. He sings and tours with extremely talented musicians and many of his songs have become anthems of the North. Every spring I get his "Springtime" stuck in my head and during a long, tough winter I think of "this is gonna be my year" to help get me through. Mark's music is fun, uplifting and relatable with some more sobering songs mixed in. He tells stories about the north and clearly loves where he's from. In this interview we talk about his songs, his experiences on the road, qualities that shaped him and the process of his songwriting.

Mark Perry on Title IX violations and institutionalized discrimination

Are You Kidding Me?

Description:Title IX was first implemented in the 1960s to rectify discrimination against women on the basis of sex in institutions receiving federal funding. In what can only be described as one of the quickest shifts in American culture, women began to outperform men in both enrollment and success in higher education. What role should Title IX play in promoting equal opportunity today? Are woke colleges and universities misconstruing the original intent of this rule and unlawfully discriminating against men? How does Title VI — a counterpart to Title IX that prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, and national origin — fit into the picture?In this episode, Mark Perry, a scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, joins Naomi and Ian to discuss the history of Title IX and Title VI and to highlight concerning trends that now threaten the original intent of these rules to ensure equal opportunity. Mark has filed 300 Title IX complaints with the office for civil rights, resulting in 144 federal investigations for violations of civil rights laws and more than 30 resolutions in his favor.Resources:Do our woke universities live up to their own values? | Mark J.

11/13/20 Mark Perry: the Revenge of Colonel Douglas Macgregor

Scott Horton Show - Just the Interviews

Pentagon reporter Mark Perry discusses the recent appointment of retired Colonel Douglas Macgregor to a senior advisory position under President Trump’s new secretary of defense. Perry calls Macgregor one of the greatest military minds in America; after a distinguished Army career that included one ofAmerica’s swiftest and most lopsided victories in the Persian Gulf War’s Battle of 73 Easting, Macgregor became a military historian and scholar. He continues to openly share his sometimes unconventional views of the U.S. military, including the need to get out of our forever-wars as quickly as possible. Perry and Scott both suspect that this is why Trump has appointed him, and fervently hope that he will be able to deliver on his plans for peace.Discussed on the show: “The revenge of Col.
