John Hinderaker joins us to discuss how Democrats may have partial blame for the Virginia shooting of Republican congressional members; with the zero proof of collusion with Russia, Mueller’s “investigation of nothing” appears more political by the day; Sharia law in Minnesota; and John’s Center of the American Experiment’s video on millennials who are unable to move out of their parents homes.

John Hinderaker is a nationally recognized lawyer and is now President of Center of the American Experiment, a think tank headquartered in Minnesota. He founded the website PowerLine in 2002 and has appeared as a commentator on NBC, CBS, Fox News, CNN, and CNBC and is a frequent guest and guest host on national radio programs. John is a graduate of Dartmouth College and Harvard Law School.

John writes daily at Powerline, which is mandatory reading for conservative readers. Powerline gained notoriety for its role in covering the Killian documents story that aired during the 2004 Presidential campaign where CBS’s Dan Rather and 60 Minutes reported they had documents relating to President George W. Bush’s term of service in the Texas Air National Guard, which kept him out of the Vietnam War. Turned out those documents were fake, Powerline advanced the story, and Dan Rather was subsequently fired from CBS.

    This started even before the election. During the campaign Democrat felon (apologies for the redundancy) Bob Creamer of Il, was paying and organizing inter-state bus trips to gather counter-protestors to Trump rallies. For people so concerned about modern fascism they sure do use a lot of tactics of fascism.

    I didn’t vote for Trump and would like to see Tom Cotton as the nominee in 2020. But I’m not going to forget the “conservatives” who are helping the Democrats push their narrative:

    – Marco Rubio pushing the conspiracy theory that the GOP platform was weakened in its policy towards Ukraine. Tom Cotton: “For the record, it was stated earlier that the Republican’s platform was weakened on the point of arms for Ukraine. That is incorrect. The platform was actually strengthened.”

    – David French, National Review – “Yes, Trump May Face Credible Obstruction-of Justice Claims.”

    I’ve been following John Hinderaker over at Powerline Blog since the beginning. His measured, well considered responses to current events are invaluable. Hearing him explain how the Left operates was really illuminating. Great interview as always, Dave!

    Cotton would be a great President. Although the way the Left are imploding, I think Trump winning re-election is becoming more probable. Also, Rubio had a good week.

    The only possibility that the could save themselves is to sweep the senate, and take or hang the house, and while I have concerns that the republicans wont take control of the senate, I cant see them loosing the house.
