Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for January 24, 2017, it’s the Carnage? What Carnage? edition of the podcast. We are brought to you this week by Patriot Mobile. Do you want a portion of every dollar you pay for mobile phone service to go to left wing causes? That may be happening, but there is an answer: Patriot Mobile.
This week we will discuss the dystopian, gloomy perspective that President Trump (wow! That felt good!) has of the current American experience as exemplified in his inauguration speech. Why does the media insist on hammering Trump for pointing out the “carnage” in the streets? As Heather Mac Donald points out in a recent National Review piece, if 16 unarmed Blacks killed by police in 2016 is a horror story, why isn’t 6000 Blacks murdered (in 2015) by fellow citizens not appropriately described as carnage?
We’ll talk about Trump’s most recent size obsession over the size of his inauguration crowd. So, we are coming to understand that Trump does not have a serviceable reverse gear. We recall all our #NeverTrump friends who have told us over the last year that if Trump becomes president disaster would ensue. We discuss what form that disaster might assume.
Next, we welcome the Cyrus Fogg Brackett Professor of Physics at Princeton University, Dr. Will Happer to the podcast as part of our continuing attempt to counter the hysterical global warming narrative that continues to hold the world in its grip. Dr. Happer is one of the 16 signatories of a renowned letter to the Wall Street Journal entitled “No Need to Panic About Global Warming.” He discusses plants and carbon dioxide and computer models and similar great topics with us.
We will have, as always, our shower thoughts (about dogs and cats this week) and our hidden gem this week is The Train, by the Roches, in honor of Maggie Roche who passed away at the age of 65 this past week.
