Bloomberg View columnist Eli Lake is back on the show to talk about why recently released transcripts from 2016 only support the conclusions his article on the railroading of Michael Flynn by the Justice Department. Also, the elite liberal revolt against the notion that law and order should be restored by all available means, and the political backlash that may be brewing among the law-abiding when it is clear that abiding by the law is a voluntary condition.

    great analogy with the cultural revolution. Are there any politicians willing to speak up and say that Blacks are delusional, that they have nothing to complain about that is not their own doing? Maybe any public figure who speaks up and calls BS would be in physical danger. And being that we are no longer a country that anyone truly cares about, what is the point of putting yourself in harms way?

    Back in the 1980’s I used to have these worry dolls. They were colorful little felt Mexican people you could tell your fears to, place into a box, and put under your pillow at night while you slept. Then they would dream your bad dreams for you so you could sleep. 

    John, Noah, Christine, and Abe have come to serve a very similar function for me in 2020. I feel like they’ve already worried about every conceivable horrible thing I could think of – and they do it Every. Single. Day. So I don’t have to. Which is strangely comforting.

    I love how Christine can’t say anything in less than three sentences and always has to take a dig at Trump. And when Eli disagrees with Christine and Noah, who do you think is being more reasonable? Prima facie evidence of their TDS. Having Eli on the show increases the rationality on this podcast exponentially. Who, by the way, is Eli going to vote for if not Trump? Sleepy Joe?
