 Joe Biden’s Politicized Justice Department | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 19:47

Here’s a basic fact: The Democratic Party’s number-one priority is to pass a voting “reform” bill that would federalize elections under rules favorable to Democratic candidates. It’s more important than any other part of the party agenda. But Democrats on Capitol Hill don’t have the votes to pass the far-reaching voting bill known as S.1. […]

 What the Infrastructure Deal Showed About Joe Biden’s Honesty | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 30:43

When President Biden announced a bipartisan deal to spend hundreds of billions of dollars on infrastructure — the real kind, like roads and bridges and waterways — he stressed that it is extremely important that he and lawmakers be able to trust each other. Each must be as good as his or her word, Biden […]

 Democrats Increasingly Out of Touch | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 24:53

In Washington, Democrats are trying to pass the most ambitious agenda since the Great Society without having won a majority of seats in the U.S. Senate. How is that supposed to work? (Answer: It won’t.) There are increasing signs that party leaders are deeply out of touch not just with the public as a whole […]

 Investigation Overload: Why Republicans Don’t Want a Capitol Riot Commission | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 20:29

Yes, 35 House Republicans voted to create a commission to investigate the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. And yes, some GOP senators also support the proposal. But the two top Republican leaders — Kevin McCarthy in the House and Mitch McConnell in the Senate — are solidly opposed. They have their reasons. Like: What about the […]

 The Liz Cheney Problem | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 26:03

Talk to House Republicans, and they’ll tell you this about Liz Cheney: Her problem is not that she voted to impeach President Donald Trump. Her problem is that she can’t move on from voting to impeach Trump. At a time when House GOP leaders feel it is critical to oppose the Biden-Pelosi agenda — trillions […]

 (Another) Outrage From the FBI | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 14:35

Remember the shooting at the House Republican baseball practice just outside of Washington? A zealous Bernie Sanders supporter and Trump hater named James Hodgkinson, armed with a semi-automatic rifle, attacked a group of GOP lawmakers as they practiced for the annual Congressional Baseball Game. Representative Steve Scalise was gravely wounded. A lobbyist was seriously hurt, […]

 A First-Person Look at the Border | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 28:50

Anyone paying attention to the news knows the situation on the U.S.-Mexico border is terrible. Anyone who actually visits the border discovers it is worse than that. This is a report on a recent trip to the border in Mission, Texas, where U.S. officials are scrambling to handle thousands of migrants who are crossing the […]

 From Delta, a Lesson for Woke Corporations | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 42:09

When the CEO of Delta Airlines took a stand against the new Georgia voting law — declaring it “unacceptable” — a chorus of Americans had the following reaction: Who asked him? Why should an airline executive get involved in electoral politics? Maybe he should concentrate on…flying? Now, Delta CEO Ed Bastian is taking it from […]

 Giant Media Bias Edition! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 30:46

There’s a lot to talk about — about the press. First, the White House press corps, or at least a selected group of ten reporters, delivered an embarrassing performance at President Biden’s first formal news conference. There were baffling omissions, neglected follow-ups, and at least one first-class attempt at presidential flattery. All in all, not […]

 An Ugly Turn for Joe Biden and Diversity | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 17:10

A United States senator vowing to oppose all nominees of a particular race? Could that happen in 2021? The answer is yes. It happened this week, in fact, when Democratic Senator Tammy Duckworth declared she would not support any white nominees for any administration positions. (The only exceptions, Duckworth said, would be for white nominees […]

 When Is ‘COVID Relief’ Not COVID Relief? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 26:14

All Americans hope the coronavirus pandemic ends and life can return to normal. But Democrats in Congress are trying to make what they call ‘COVID relief’ permanent. Their ‘COVID relief’ is in fact a series of long-held Democratic policy goals that have nothing to do with the virus, but they want to use the pandemic […]

 Keep Your Eye on the Things that Matter | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 17:57

Much of the daily conversation on social media is consumed by ephemera. Is political Twitter being mean to Taylor Lorenz? Does Pepe Le Pew promote rape culture? And what about Harry and Meghan? It’s all fine to think about, as long as you don’t devote too much mental bandwidth to it and don’t forget that […]

 Reassessing Trump and COVID | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 25:17

It’s hard to exaggerate the anger, criticism, and vitriol directed toward then-President Trump last year for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic. If for some reason you need a reminder, just search for “Trump” and “blood on his hands.” But now something interesting is happening. In the last few days, among some commentators following the […]

 Senate Sick of Wray; Biden in Denial | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 27:29

FBI Director Christopher Wray was supposed to testify to the Senate Judiciary Committee on the state of the January 6 Capitol riot investigation. He gave the media the soundbite it wanted, but failed or refused to answer some of the senators’ basic questions about the riot. And it wasn’t a partisan thing. Some Republican members […]

 McConnell, Biden, and Trump | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 23:25

The Senate GOP leader came to a Fox News interview prepared to talk about the current president equally prepared to not talk about the former president. But Mitch McConnell ended up making news about Donald Trump anyway. What is the thinking behind McConnell’s statement — less than two weeks after his scathing criticism of Trump […]
