 What Were the Capitol Rioters Thinking? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 22:06

It’s one of the most basic questions of the Capitol riot investigation: What was the rioters’ plan? What did they think was going to happen when they stormed the Capitol on January 6, as Congress certified the results of the Electoral College? There are lots of different answers — remember, thousands of people were there […]

 Now, For the Heart of the Impeachment Trial | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 22:01

As expected, Democrats won the vote on constitutionality that began the second impeachment trial of former President Trump. Six Republicans went along with unanimous Democrats in voting that the trial is in fact constitutional. So now it is on to the substance of the case. House Democratic impeachment managers will attempt to prove that then-President […]

 Five Reasons Why the Trump Trial is Unconstitutional (And One Opposing View) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 23:44

The impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump is beginning with a deep divide among senators. Nearly all Republicans believe it is unconstitutional to try an ex-president. All Democrats disagree. Democrats point to a majority of law professors who agree with them — no surprise there — while some conservative scholars and jurists support the […]

 When The White House Can’t Handle The Truth | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 23:29

New White House press secretary Jen Psaki promised to bring “truth and transparency back to the briefing room.” President Biden promised to be guided by science in his decisions regarding the COVID pandemic. Now both of those vows are being put to the test on the question of reopening schools. This week, Biden’s new CDC […]

 Why Is the National Guard Still in Washington? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 23:39

There were roughly 25,000 National Guard members in Washington for the inauguration of President Joe Biden. The deployment was in large part an overreaction to the Capitol riot of January 6. But now, 5,000 are still here. The inauguration was two weeks ago, it went off without incident, and there is no need for troops […]

 The Revolution Devours All Before It | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 15:36

Just look at what happened Tuesday night in, of all places, a Zoom meeting of the San Francisco School Board. In that meeting, members voted to strip the names of American historical figures — George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, and even California Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein — from schools in San Francisco. A removal […]

 Can Trump Be Tried? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 19:01

House Democrats will deliver to the Senate a single, hastily-passed article of impeachment against former President Trump. A trial is set to begin two weeks later, on February 9. It will be an event without precedent — the first time in U.S. history that a former president will be tried in a court of impeachment. […]

 Biden’s True Top Priority | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 19:36

The new Biden administration says it must act quickly, with a flurry of executive orders, because the nation is experiencing not one, not two, not three, but four crises. “We face four overlapping and compounding crises,” said new chief of staff Ron Klain. “The COVID-19 crisis, the resulting economic crisis, the climate crisis, and a […]

 Trump Derangement Syndrome In A Post-Trump World | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 17:25

President Trump will become former President Trump tomorrow. When Joe Biden takes office, Democrats will control the White House, the House, and the Senate. An ambitious agenda lies ahead for the new Democratic administration. And yet there are signs that some Democrats’ obsession with Donald Trump — the condition known as Trump Derangement Syndrome — […]

 Assessing Trump’s Disastrous End | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 18:10

Donald Trump is now the only president ever impeached twice. Yes, that says a lot about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s, and the Democratic Party’s, obsessive quest to remove him from office. But the impeachment is also the result of a disastrous turn in Trump’s presidency since the November 3 election. The turn was so consequential […]

 The Crazy Impeachment | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 18:05

Democrats started trying to remove President Trump from office before he entered office. Now they are proposing to remove him from office after he leaves office. How do you remove an ex-president? He’s already gone. That is the bizarre question posed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s obsessive quest to re-impeach Donald Trump with just a […]

 For The GOP, Nine Perilous Days | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 21:07

There are some Republicans in Washington who wish inauguration day were today, or tomorrow — or yesterday. They supported President Trump and appreciated his significant accomplishments, but now they are more than ready to move on from what has become a disastrous end to the Trump presidency. The fact is, though, the president’s term lasts […]

 The Brad Raffensperger Problem | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 18:02

It’s possible to have two entirely different but entirely compatible reactions to accounts of President Trump’s Saturday phone call with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. First, the president clearly tried to press Raffensperger to “find” enough votes to flip Georgia from Biden to Trump. Even though Trump obviously believes the phantom votes are rightfully […]

 Now They Tell Us! Trump Was Tough On Russia! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 13:45

Democrats and their allies in the press spent the last four years accusing President Trump of being soft on Russia. And worse: Some called the president a Russian asset, a traitor, Putin’s patsy, and much, much more. It was all BS, because behind the rhetoric was the stark reality that Trump, and his administration, have […]

 The Democrats Eric Swalwell Problem | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 14:11

House Democratic leaders are trying to keep the espionage scandal surrounding Intelligence Committee member Rep. Eric Swalwell under tight control. But it’s going to be an uphill battle. Republicans are pushing harder and harder to learn more about Swalwell’s relationship with Chinese spy Christine Fang. And after an FBI briefing for GOP leader Rep. Kevin […]
