We welcome Dan Senor to today’s podcast to explain the collapse of Israel’s government and how it represents a brilliant new political play by Bibi Netanyahu. Then we talk about our own Noah Rothman’s lead essay in the July-August COMMENTARY, “You Are What You Don’t Eat.” Give a listen.
Democrats are attempting to convince voters that inflation is A) everyone else’s fault and B) something that Republicans could do something about if they had a plan. Will it work? Also, Ron DeSantis’ impressive showing at the Jewish Leadership Conference and the January 6 Committee’s unwise decision to set high expectations for their performance.
American Enterprise Institute Senior Fellow Matthew Continetti joins the program today to break down the January 6 Committee’s first hearing. What did we learn? What did the Committee prove? And what does it matter? Also, what the firing of Washington Post reporter Felicia Sonmez says about the future of “wokeness.”
Today’s podcast takes up the punishment of a Washington Post reporter for the crime of retweeting a provocative joke—and what it says about journalism, the Post, and America. Plus: what Georgetown Law School hath wrought in its treatment of a conservative scholar. And we talk January 6. Give a listen.
Joe Biden’s speech lobbying for new gun laws was emotional and affecting, but is that enough to convince the Senate to enact his policy preferences? Plus, good jobs numbers and student loan debt relief as evidence of the White House’s ideological capture. COMMENTARY tech columnist James B. Meigs joins the show today to talk about all this and more.
Matthew Continetti joins the podcast today to talk about OPEC’s move to release more oil just as Joe Biden is “considering” a visit to Saudi Arabia. Gee, we thought Saudi Arabia was beyond the pale! And we talk baby formula, abortion, and guns, so you know nothing controversial will be said. Give a listen.
Eliana Johnson of the Washington Free Beacon joins the podcast today to talk about Joe Biden’s walk-back of his firm statement—on Monday!—that the U.S. wouldn’t supply Ukraine with certain weapons. Why does he keep doing this? What on earth is going on? Plus, what happened with the John Durham investigation? Give a listen.
