What do young people think about abortion? Are Millennials turning into godless heathens? With abortion and religion in the headlines, Host Jack Butler explores where young people stand on these areas and speculates on how they will develop as issues in the future, with the help of National Review staff writer Alexandra DeSanctis.

Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America enjoy watching Howard Schultz and Elizabeth Warren trade insults over Warren’s proposed wealth tax and shudder to think that Schultz might be the most sensible liberal considering a 2020 presidential run. They also slam Kamala Harris for suggesting that lawmakers who don’t support gun control don’t care about the victims of mass shootings and contending that if Republicans saw photos of murdered children that they would vote differently. And they laugh and cringe as the chairwoman of a California State Senate committee bans the use of gendered pronouns in committee – and then proceeds to violate her own rule over and over again.

Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America enjoy watching liberals freak out over the possibility of an independent presidential bid by former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, who is much more closely aligned with Democrats than Republicans. A Notre Dame graduate, Alexandra also shares her insights into the presidential campaign of South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg and why his message could resonate with Midwest voters. And they roll their eyes as CNN reporter Jeff Zeleny says the Mueller indictments have Hillary Clinton once again thinking about running in 2020.

Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America react to Florida Sen. Marco Rubio calling out ballot counting irregularities in Broward and Palm Beach counties in the race between Rick Scott and Bill Nelson. Both counties are in clear violation of canvassing law and both Rubio and Scott are convinced that Democrats are trying to steal the election after the two counties suddenly discovered nearly 100,000 new ballots, the overwhelming majority of which are for Democrats. And Alexandra sounds off on the latest hypocrisy from New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand.

Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America tackle three crazy martinis today. They wade into the battle of monstrous egos as CNN White House Correspondent Jim Acosta grandstands and tries to debate President Trump about the migrants headed for the U.S. border and Trump responds by calling Acosta a “terrible person” and pulling his White House press credentials. They also recoil as Antifa protesters find the home of Fox News host Tucker Carlson, damaging his front door, and chanting that they know where he sleeps while Carlson’s wife hides in the pantry. They get a kick out of the rank hypocrisy of the left-wing Women’s March for berating the white women who voted for Republicans. And Alexandra takes us inside the North Dakota and Indiana Senate wins for the GOP and what she learned from covering those two races closely.

Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud the Senate for confirming Brett Kavanaugh and, more importantly, for standing up for defending some of the most fundamental principles of the American system of government. They also sigh as former Attorney General Eric Holder says the legitimacy of the Supreme Court is now in question and only upcoming rulings can answer the question, and Justice Elena Kagan questions whether the high court is legitimate now that there’s no obvious swing justice like Anthony Kennedy or Sandra Day O’Connor. Alexandra sounds off on a New York Times op-ed calling white women gender traitors who benefit from keeping the patriarchy in place. And they roll their eyes as Columbus, Ohio, stops observing Columbus Day.

Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America cheer Vice President Pence for going to North Dakota and hammering Sen. Heidi Heitkamp for her liberal votes on health care, taxes, abortion, energy and more – in a sign the Republicans are getting on message early in the states with the best pickup opportunities. They also take aim at Heitkamp’s attempt to look strong on the second amendment after the senator makes a pathetic attempt to liken passion for gun rights similar to passion for abortion rights. And they slam “Fire and Fury” author Michael Wolff, who is now admitting he is an observer rather than a journalist and says his job “has nothing to do with the truth.”

Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America enjoy watching new Republican ads tying incumbent Senate Democrats to Hillary Clinton’s trashing of Trump voters. They also respond to former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, who says individual gun rights should have vanished at the same time as state militias and that the second amendment ought to be repealed. And they get a kick out of the New York Times breathlessly revealing that state laws designed to limit abortion are all part of an effort by pro-life activists to reverse Roe v. Wade.

Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are glad to see the Department of Homeland Security taking a thorough, pro-active approach to securing the 2018 midterms. They also slam MSNBC’s Katy Tur for being the latest liberal journalist to suggest Americans frame the gun debate as, “Kids or guns, what do you value more?” Alexandra strongly calls out the intellectual dishonesty and rampant hypocrisy involved in that approach from liberals. They get a kick out Newsweek suggesting that internet bots are really responsible for the ouster of Minnesota Sen. Al Franken, as opposed to his own inappropriate behavior. And they pause to remember the life and legacy of evangelist Billy Graham.

Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America cheer the family leave plan pushed by Sen. Marco Rubio and Ivanka Trump to allow parents to tap their future Social Security checks to cover the weeks surrounding the birth of a new baby in exchange for waiting extra weeks when they reach retirement. In addition, Alexandra rebuts the liberal insistence that family leave must be a whole new entitlement. They also slam Republicans for effectively surrendering the option to use budget reconciliation for the next two years as part of the horrific budget deal with Democrats. And they fire back at Republican lawmakers who spent Thursday trashing Sen. Rand Paul’s filibuster as a waste of time, when those GOP members are really just mad that Sen. Paul called them out for their blatant hypocrisy on deficit spending and not wanting to take a vote on restoring budget caps.

Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America give a quick preview of what they look forward to at the spectacle known as State of the Union before dishing out martinis. Then, they shake their heads as New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand first demands that President Trump resign over sexual harassment allegations and then immediately starts waffling when Meghan McCain brings up the Clintons. They also express disgust at Hillary Clinton after Clinton’s 2008 campaign manager reveals that she recommended that Clinton fire her faith adviser following credible accusations of harassment in 2007, only to have Hillary reject that idea and give the adviser a slap on the wrist. And they point out that stories of President Trump’s pettiness are driving away people who might otherwise be inclined to support him, the latest example being an ugly and pointless exchange between Trump and the recently ousted Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe.

Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are deeply disappointed that the Senate is unlikely to pass a bill banning the vast majority of abortion past 20 weeks of pregnancy, but are heartened that most Americans support the restrictions, including a majority of Democrats and a majority of women. They also hammer “Fire and Fury” author Michael Wolff for his sleazy efforts to suggest that U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley is having an affair with President Trump and they praise Haley for her clear and dignified denials. And they roll their eyes as the Grammy Awards telecast shoehorns Hillary Clinton reading an excerpt from “Fire and Fury” into the show, a move made even more baffling in this #MeToo environment by recent reports that the 2008 Clinton campaign took no action against Hillary’s faith adviser for sexual harassment.

More

Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America encourage President Trump to scrap President Obama’s unconstitutional and unilateral program allowing illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children, noting the issue ought to be addressed by Congress. They also slam former FBI Director James Comey upon the revelation that he decided to exonerate Hillary Clinton in her email investigation long before the investigation was done or key witnesses were interviewed. And they roll their eyes as a Catholic school in California removes most of its statues, including ones of Jesus and Mary, in an effort to be more inclusive and “forward-looking.”

More

Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are actually glad to see Sen. Kamala Harris and other national Democrats admitting they want single payer, government-run health care for everyone and they hope America is still ready to reject it. They also hammer radical activist Linda Sarsour for acting as if she’s raising money for hurricane victims when her real goal to build up the bank of her organization to foster division along ethnic, racial, and gender lines. They also pound Politico for a horrible political cartoon characterizing Texans as confederate, Christian rubes who should realize they are being rescued by government rather than God. And they close by shaking their heads at the cases of Americans who injured themselves by applying sunscreen directly to their eyeballs to look at the recent solar eclipse.

Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are all for a robust federal response to assist in the recovery and the rebuilding of the Texas coast, but they also don’t want to see the legislation turn into a spending spree for a bunch of unrelated projects for other parts of the country and they applaud political and policy figures for setting that priority now. They also unload on the mayor of Berkeley, California, for calling for speakers like Milo Yiannopoulos and Ann Coulter not to speak on campus because it might set off the Antifa rioters. And Alexandra explains the litany of double standards as the media and social media savage First Lady Melania Trump for wearing high heels to board Air Force One on her way to survey the devastating floods in Texas.

Alexandra DeSanctis is a colleague of Jay’s at National Review. A recent graduate of Notre Dame, she is a William F. Buckley fellow at NRI (the National Review Institute). She is especially knowledgeable about the “life” issues. About abortion in particular. Also, she has been on the beat of Planned Parenthood, doggedly. She and Jay talk about that organization, and about abortion, etc.

“Is this dinner-table conversation?” Jay asks at the end. Is abortion a topic for polite company? For a podcast? In any event, it’s an important one. Both Jay and his guest are pro-life, or anti-abortion, if you like. (Jay will even accept “anti-choice,” on the subject of abortion.) But perhaps even the other side will be interested in what they have to say. To “know where they’re coming from,” as was said, once upon a time.
