Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
If I stay overseas any longer, it’s pretty clear the usurpation of the 3wHH will morph into the “The McRibb Happy Meal Podcast” if I don’t put a stop to it, so I made sure to disrupt this week’s episode once again from London, this time while finishing off a bottle of Poit Dhubh (potch-goo), as fits the real show.
I didn’t stick around for long as it was the dinner hour over here in London, but I managed to get in my licks on the Joe Manchin Sellout, in which I find more and more mischief with every page. Turns out the Democrats are trying to amend the Clean Air Act to undermine the Supreme Court’s recent West Virginia v. EPA case, but trying this in a spending bill is likely impermissible under the Senate’s reconciliation rules. But what are “norms” among dreamy progressives?
After I took my leave, John and Lucretia continue their ongoing conversation about how to understand that apparent moment of revolution in jurisprudence, which John thinks isn’t merely the culmination of the Reagan-era initiative to restore constitutional originalism, but perhaps even goes beyond it.

Do I get royalties when the Three McRibb Happy Meal Podcast gets overrun with sponsors eager to pony up to reach your thirteen listeners? Great show as always; Yoo needs to become a regular.
Extremely good podcast. Just the right mix of very silly and very very smart.
Sometime when you guys don’t have anything to talk about, could you discuss Isaiah Berlin? I can’t believe I’ve never heard of this guy. “Positive liberty” and “negative liberty”. Mark Levin was talking about him on Friday, August 5, third hour.
Start at 1:31:00
Steve and I actually did a seminar at Berkeley couple of years ago on Isaiah Berlin’s “Two Concepts of Liberty.” As usual, Steve was more favorably inclined toward Berlin….
In honor of Steve’s imminent return…
Right on, folks.
About those election issues, here’s some stuff I can speak to myself, copied from another thread:
Here’s some of the relevant info:
If we’re talking about chain of custody issues, yes, there’s a lot from 2020, including something like (I think) 10,000 tracked by Raffensperger in GA and 50k in PA (fact-checked and verified!) and a flash disk in WI with an unknown number of votes, and the MI Senate report confirmation of 30k in MI.
And if we’re talking about things that should have been prosecuted but weren’t, then about 50k in GA in a single category of election illegalities, tracked by Mark Davis. (@mountie.)
Should I go into the votes that were illegally cast but should not have been prosecuted? That includes about 54,000 votes in WI, and about 1.1 million Biden votes in PA.
There’s much more in the big post, even considering only considering the claims that have survived a round of fact-checking. Not all were categories of Biden votes or fraudulent votes specifically. However:
–all were illegally cast or counted (unless in some cases the chain of custody rules broken happened not to be formally written in state law);
–together they most likely flipped several swing states;
–some actually were categories of Biden votes;
–some were fraudulent;
–and the non-fraudulent ones tended still to be fraud-enabling.
What was the music at the end of this week’s podcast? Was that Gryphon?
Sounded like it, didn’t it?
