Today’s podcast examines the changes in the electorates on the eve of primaries across the country, and wonders why people are so addicted to theories about America rather than looking at the evidence of their own eyes. And we discuss baby formula again. Give a listen.

    Do you count as a conspiracy theorist if you constantly insist everyone else in the country is obsessed with conspiracy theories?

    Commentary wonders why no institutions are trusted

    The experts outsourced the supply chain to the CCP in the 1990s

    Given how the IRS mishandled the Tea Party in 2010s

    The FBI pushed Russia collusion in 2016, monitored parents at PTA meeting and told us Hunter Biden laptop was Russian Disinformation

    you had a disfunction FDA that pushed draconian policies during Covid

    I keep trying figure where this great welling of replacement theory and white supremacy that Noah Rothman keeps talking about is. I live in South Texas which has been majority Hispanic for a long time and my House district went from reliably Democrat to Republican about 10 years ago. It did that because the Republican candidates actively sought the Hispanic vote and were successful. I believe the racial issues being discussed are more of a figment of the North East based media’s imagination than an actual problem.

    Sad that you can practically hear in Noah’s voice the desire for Republicans to lose, lose, and lose.  He truly lives in another world…Even sadder that John seems to think the only important thing is winning elections.  Sure, the GOP can talk about inflation until November and win back control of the House and Senate, but then what?  Continue to manage the slow, inevitable decline?  They don’t have answers and that’s the problem and why their influence continues to wane.

    You are right about Noah and I don’t really understand it.

    I also believe John is right that winning elections is very important.  There is room for Susan Collins and Ted Cruz and Rand Paul, etc in the same party. But as you said, they cannot just try to manage things. They need to get out there with real plans on issues such as inflation and show that they can work to improve the state of the nation.
