That could describe Charlie Sykes – a powerful batter for truth, conservative ideas, and integrity. He joins to talk about his new book – How The Right Lost Its Mind.

Jay and Mona then turn to the Mueller investigation, latent libertarianism, and yes – baseball.

    This is true for me too. I was looking forward to hearing about Charlie Sykes’ new book, and the Podcast is last weeks!

    Yes, indeed, the link serves up a copy of the Oct. 27 episode. I’ve sent an email to support@ricochet.com.

    I have been an Astros fan for over 30 years and it is just about killing me. I will be totally crushed if they don’t win tonight and a nervous wreck through the entire game.

    Charlie Sykes on Scott Walker in 2015: “I think the nativist rhetoric does not come naturally to him.”

    Open borders, open borders.

    See, this is the problem: Charlie Sykes was trying to address what has happened to a philosophy that just wanted to move the country forward. Conservatism was always meant to try and address the Moral and Manners of this country, and conserve those, along with our founding documents. We want to help people help themselves, by putting forth constructive policies, along with the good manners by which a civilization lives and thrives. Now, it is in trouble, and all you can do is scream about open borders.

    No one mentioned open borders. No real conservative is in favor of open borders. That is for libertarians, and the more radical liberals. You’d be better off if you would try to offer come constructive commentary.

    If voting for Bill de Blasio and honoring Ethel Rosenberg = apple pie.

    I was interested in the comments about Ryan Zinke. His recent move to make the entrance fees in the national parks $70, more than double their current rate has not endeared him to me or many of my friends who live as I do about 20 miles from Mount Rainier National Park. The parks have had diminishing services, have tended to create zones that visitors cannot go to or from which you are discouraged, and other attempts to make “wilderness” a place without people, rather than a place you can visit that has no development, all of which make the original concept of the parks seem passé. They will have their little preserves by making it unaffordable for many. I get very few benefits from the taxes I pay. In the past I always thought of the national parks as one benefit. Not anymore.
