Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political podcast number 161 it’s the Devin Nunes, Man of Steele edition of the show with your humble hosts, radio guy Todd Feinburg and nanophysicist Mike Stopa. In this week’s edition we dissect, trisect, septasect the Nunes memo, the Steele dossier (yichh!) and the FBI cabal that is working night and day to take Trump down.
This is a serious discussion. Of course the legacy media on the left (did I repeat myself?) are doing nothin but “debunking.” They call it fact checking but they set out with the clear and unvarnished objective to cut the Nunes memo down to size. Newsweek’s treatment is particularly egregious in its one-sidedness. But is the right a bit unhinged as well? Stopa thinks so, Todd is unconvinced. Is there really a conspiracy in the FBI? or is it simply partisanship that has gotten excessive? We will discuss.
Next, we discuss an LA Times report on some “research” out of the University of Leeds. Leeds is like one of those third rate institutions that are just trying to grab themselves some sunshine. Published in Nature Sustainability the Leeds paper compares the quality of living in lots of countries with the sustainability. It is an embarrassing socialist diatribe with a little climate hysteria sprinkled on top. It’s always fun when the second rate academics dance their naked leftist dance for all to see.
We will have our shower thoughts (P.G. Wodehous! What ho!) and our hidden gem, first ever for Simon and Garfunkel, is from Bridge Over Trouble Water: The Only Living Boy in New York.
Half of the time we’re gone but we don’t know where and we don’t know where…”
