TOPICS: Nominating a Supreme Court justice, the moral imagination, and Sparta’s Second Attic War.

Host Scot Bertram talks with Mollie Hemingway, senior journalism fellow at Hillsdale College and co-author of JUSTICE ON TRIAL, about the process and politics of nominating a Supreme Court justice to the open seat. Dan Coupland, chairman and professor of Hillsdale’s education department, explains what is meant by the term “moral imagination.” And Paul Rahe, professor of history at Hillsdale, talks about his new book, SPARTA’S SECOND ATTIC WAR

Fox News Commentator (and Ricochet alum) Mollie Hemingway took a break from the hectic pace of events to sit down with our own Dave Carter for a fairly comprehensive survey of the political and cultural landscape today. The conversation ranges from Joe Biden’s selection of Senator Kamala Harris for his Vice Presidential candidate, to the media’s mischaracterization of the riots and carnage in major cities across the country. Along the way, Mollie and Dave discuss the general reluctance of politicians and commentators to honestly address the “root causes” of much of the crime, death, and destruction that afflicts inner city life across the nation (their conclusions may surprise you). Dave laments the media’s apparent role as the public relations arm of the DNC, at which point Mollie takes a different view. How different? You’ll have to listen in for that one.

Then Dave talks with Ricochet Charter Member Duane Oyen, who has been with us since before this site launched. Duane has some thoughts on the state of politics today, the Never Trump phenomenon, and various distinctions and divisions on the Right. “But when Duane weighs in on the things that unite us all,” writes Dave, “he sounds as wise as Solomon.” If you like discussions of policy, political philosophy, and a dose of history, this is the podcast for you. you.

FDR’s first Vice President is quoted as saying the job was not worth a bucket of warm spit, although he actually used an earthier bodily fluid to describe the vice presidency. Will Sen. Kamala Harris agree if the Biden-Harris ticket wins? MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki joins The Horse Race to talk about Harris’ selection and give us his assessment on the state of the race. The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway also joins the show and talks about the Kavanaugh hearings, media bias, and the return of “yellow journalism.” The final edition of “Primary Night in America” covers key races over the next three weeks in Florida, Oklahoma, and Massachusetts. Only on The Horse Race!

This week on The Big Show, we inch our way back to normal with our first show in weeks without a COVID-19 specific guest. That’s not to say we don’t talk about it — we do, and then some. But the new cycle means that we have to address those icky charges against Joe Biden and to do that we call on the Ricochet Podcast’s Senior Sex and Gender Correspondent, the great Mollie Hemingway (yes, she’s also a Fox News contributor and a Senior Editor at The Federalist, but we had her first). We go deep on Tara Reade’s accusations, and how the media is (or isn’t) covering this story. Then, our old friend (and WSJ columnist) Bill McGurn stops by to discuss his recent column Communists in Brooks Brothers, in which he describes the struggles of Martin Lee. Also, some news on other dissidents in Hong Kong, and a bit of politics. We’ve got a Lileks Post of The Week about ratting on your neighbors and some closing thoughts on what the heck may be going on in The Hermit Kingdom.

A special edition from Iowa, where Democrats are struggling with a number of unpalatable options in their presidential caucuses. The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway got her first chance to observe the 2020 version of Joe Biden in action, and her reaction is…not entirely optimistic for the former vice president’s chances. Meanwhile, President Trump is making an all-out effort in Iowa not to win the caucuses — he’s guaranteed to do that — but to put a key swing state in the Trump column for the general election before Democrats even choose a candidate.

Mollie Hemingway joins Mark to discuss her recent book, “Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court,” co-written with Carrie Severino.

Topics: Impeachment, Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the rise and fall of the Roman Republic, and Louisa May Alcott.

Scot Bertram talks with Mollie Hemingway, senior journalism fellow at Hillsdale, about the push for impeachment and recent stories regarding Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Hillsdale’s Ken Calvert discusses the rise and fall of the Roman Republic. And Sarah Schutte (Hillsdale ’18) makes the case for Louisa May Alcott as the great American writer.

In this edition of The American Mind podcast, host Ryan Williams sits down with Mollie Hemingway, Senior Editor at The Federalist, and Carrie Severino, chief counsel and policy director of the Judicial Crisis Network, to discuss their new bestselling book, Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court.

During the conversation, Williams, Hemingway, and Severino discuss the unprecedented partisanship from the Left on the judicial confirmation process; the impact of the Clinton impeachment inquiry on the crusade against Justice Kavanaugh; the over-judicialization of politics and why it has transpired; DOJ malfeasance and the rise of “expertise;” law enforcement and the administrative state; the Kavanaugh confirmation fight as a proxy for the power of identity politics; the politicization of the Supreme Court; what Pumpkin Spice Lattes tell us about the state of American civil society and politics; the criticality of a common understanding of human nature, the Constitution and American identity; and much more.

Nobody knows more about the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation fight than Mollie Hemingway, co-author of “Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court.” Now, a new book by two New York Times reporters tries to throw more dirt at Kavanaugh — and Hemingway has taken the lead in debunking its new, flimsy charges

It’s summer and when people go on vacation, we like to mix things up a bit, with James off this week, we called on our friend and fellow podcaster John Yoo to sit in. That was a fortuitous choice as our guest is Mollie Hemingway, former Ricochet editor, Fox News contributor, and co-author the the best selling book  Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court. We get the inside dope (yes, that’s the word) on Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing and the aftermath and lasting effects. Also, was Ronald Reagan a racist? And is Baltimore really that bad? We ask native son Rob Long for an answer.

On the Friday edition of the Daily Daily Caller Podcast, we sit down for the weekly video interview with authors Mollie Hemingway and Carrie Severino to talk about their bestselling book, “Justice On Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court.” We also cover the response to President Donald Trump disavowing the “send her home” chants at his rally in North Carolina, the panels for the second Democratic debate in Detroit are set, and it’s been 50 years since man first walked on the moon.

Nothing President Donald Trump can or will ever say will be enough to placate liberals, both elected Democrats and in the media. He unequivocally denounced the “send her home” chants directed at anti-Semitic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar. Still liberals were accusing him of being a fascist and racist because it’s all they have. “The View” host Joy Behar asked her fellow hosts why Trump can’t be charged with “hate speech,” showing once again how totalitarian the instincts of “progressive” leftists truly are. We have all the audio and analysis.

Carrie Severino and Mollie Hemingway join Elizabeth Slattery to talk about their new book, “Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court.” It’s not your typical beach read, but you won’t be able to put it down!
