On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, Daily Caller reporters Shelby Talcott and Richard McGinniss reflect on their recent riot coverage with Federalist Senior Editor Christopher Bedford.
In Kenosha, McGinniss stood just feet away from a man who was shot and killed, tending to his wounds in the immediate aftermath. Talcott was recently arrested in Louisville while covering the riots that broke out after news broke of the grand jury’s decision in the Breonna Taylor case.
On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, Founder and Executive Director of Power the Future Daniel Turner joins Federalist Senior Editor Christoper Bedford to discuss his recent article about how foolish local leadership and a negligent government forced him out of his urban community.

Note: This podcast was recorded in mid-August.
Pastor Ché Ahn and Attorney Mathew Staver joined Senior Editor Christopher Bedford to discuss their recent lawsuit against California Gov. Gavin Newsom for his actions in banning religious worship amid the ongoing government lockdown. Ahn is the founder and head pastor at Harvest International Ministry and Harvest Rock Church, and Staver is a founding member of Liberty Counsel.
Ahn argued Gov. Newsom imposed a double standard in shutting down religious services while praising the reckless protests and looting that ensued following the death of George Floyd, despite their lack of compliance with CDC guidelines. Staver said the Constitution makes it clear the government cannot prevent citizens from gathering to worship.
Jim DeMint and Rachel Bovard joined Senior Editor Christopher Bedford to discuss socialism’s influence in America and how conservatives can combat its spread. Bovard is the founder of the Conservative Partnership Institute, of which former Sen. DeMint is the chairman, and a senior member of the Internet Accountability Project. DeMint is also a member of the coronavirus task force and the author of “Saving America From Socialism.”
DeMint said he observed the first major move toward socialism when former President Obama took office in 2008, but noted democrats have now fully embraced this ideology. Now, Bovard added, since the education system has fully perpetuated the Marxist idea that there are no self-evident truths, the modern consensus devolved into accepting the triumph of the will. This is clearly reflected in the “Black Lives Matter” movement and the destruction of historical monuments.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson joins Federalist Senior Editor Christopher Bedford to discuss his historic ratings surge and why he’s resonating with the public right now. Carlson shares his thoughts on recent cultural upheaval, elites, riots, vandalism, the state of the American right, and answers the $1,000,000 question: What does Tucker Carlson want?
Carlson calls on Republicans who are elected to congress and those who run right-wing think tanks to step up and represent the values of their voters. While the left runs nearly every institution in American social and political life, Republicans consistently fail their voters by not acting, Carlson says.
