By popular demand from listeners, this special edition of the Power Line Show features both Kelly Jane Torrance of the Washington Examiner and “Lucretia,” Power Line’s International Woman of Mystery. Kelly Jane is just back from serving as an official election watcher over in Ukraine, and lays out a delightful political scene that does Donald Trump one better in the TV entertainment division. Plus, as Kelly Jane keeps close tabs on Iranian affairs, we go over what’s going on with Iran’s repeated provocations in the Gulf.

Then we turn the mic over to “Lucretia” for some serial rants about the Supreme Court and its unusual mid-summer ruling last week on Trump’s border wall funding, the Mueller investigation and hearing, raising a new dog, and Steve Hayward’s current drinking and grilling habits (which you can see below). Also, we let down the listener who wrote in thinking he had figured out Lucretia’s identity, but alas no, because our Lucretia would never consent to appear on Conversations with Kristol, which is where our listener thought he had picked up a clue.

Last night’s rack of lamb overlooking the Pacific Ocean. That’s Domaine Serene 2015 “Two Barns” Pinot Noir.

    I have figured out who “Lucretia” is – she’s my future wife! My soulmate, my partner in confusion about, and frustration with, the insane NeverTrump mentality.

    Backing up a couple steps first: Lucretia is exactly correct about Mueller, especially the part about how he’s not a good person if only for his decision to hire Weissman. I’ll never believe anyone – not even a rock-ribbed Republican – who tells me that anyone else is a straight shooter, a solid citizen, a rock-ribbed Republican.

    There was always ZERO evidence of collusion, and Mueller surely knew that from the instant he was sworn in as special counsel. Yet he kept up the investigation, for freaking 22 months. Lives ruined, family fortunes lost in the process by witnesses trying to protect themselves, … Mueller is evil.

    Lucretia is pure joy. I look forward to living happily ever after with her.

    Lucretia is great and right-on about the never-Trumpers, though she’s too soft on Goldberg. I can tell she hasn’t listened to him for some time. Great picture too. Makes me homesick for the California coast. I can smell the ocean air and see the marine layer slowly descending as the sun sets…

    Finally caught up with this podcast. (It is a podcast right Blue Yeti?) Loved both interviews and interested to hear more Ms. Torrance in the future. Of course, never enough Lucretia. I’m a great believer @libertydefender in having a list of at least one, if not more, second spouses. If I were a man Lucretia would be high on my list too!
