While not technically a Whiskey Politics episode, we thought our viewers and listeners would appreciate hearing a 2-fer from two of Ricochet’s favorite writers who we interviewed at Real Side Radio, where I’m a guest host (on the GCN Network, heard on 52 terrestrial stations nationwide and 3000 satellite). First up is Jon Gabriel, Editor in Chief at Ricochet.com, Contributor at USAToday and AZRepublic as well as the co-host of the popular podcast The Conservatarians. Jon discusses why the “arrogant” anti-Trump Conservatives have got it all wrong (and Jon was never a Trump fan) and how the world is now following America’s lessons in how to fight back. Follow Jon’s popular Twitter feed at http://Twitter.com/exjon. Then the voice of Radio Deplorable, the always thought-provoking raconteur, David Carter who discusses everything from media malfeasance causing ‘the tide to turn’ with voters, Kirsten Gillibrand’s abortion politics, Trump’s trade policies, religion and his recent article on Ricochet. You can find Dave at http://DaveCarterOnline.com and his Twitter feed at http://twitter.com/DBCarter62. Find both Jon and David’s writing and podcast series at http://Ricochet.com.

    If Trump is not re-elected, he will be seen as an aberration. This is the best argument to withhold my vote from Trump.

    Well, then you shouldn’t have voted for him the first time…

    Solid. Many of us in same boat. One point about Washington. Washington is all abstract, like the EU. It’s real but mostly irrelevant to real people outside of that clique. What is real about what all those bureaucrats are doing every day? The answer? Nothing. They have real lives when they go home, send their kids to a local school, go shopping etc. but what they do during the day is abstract and unrooted. I find I can agree with liberals about many local issues, or at most disagree rationally, but  they do not understand Washington. Perhaps none of us do. I’d guess that most never Trumpers on the right are academics, full time journalists in Washington or lobbyists there who haven’t done much else, or are caught up in groups of such folks. The fact is I think the drift to the center always has existed and is why nations die. Washington will never fix itself because it’s an unrooted abstraction and always will be. Real politics were written into our constitution for concrete reasons, they exist at the local level and we must go back. Washington can’t learn, it’s not real in that sense, its’ all abstract and can go in any direction but it always, like every capital of giant societies, extracts wealth. George Town politeness is just right. Impossible? Well it’s a future for folks on both sides of the political spectrum.

    Exactly, that old , lose with dignity, reach across the aisle to my good friend Republican Party is as dead as a door nail. The Mitts, Bushes and the rest still don’t understand the rage engendered in the faithful by their inarticulateness and inability or refusal to fight back . We kept sending them in to fight and they either laid down or were taken for a ride every single time all the while acting as if they had friends in the press. Playing country club golf in the middle of a gang fight while the other side is swinging chains. That’s why Trump rallies are the way they are, finally a fighter on our side. If Mitt thinks he has a snowballs chance in Hell for the nomination , he’s crazy.

    This whole post is excellent, but I particularly like this part.

    Be sure to listen to the latest Mad Dogs and Englishmen.

    Gary has predictions.

    If you hate Trump and you don’t want everything to turn socialist, deal with my comment #26, here.

    Also the statist media controls the Democrat party and the Democrat Party has social control over everything: education, entertainment, human resources departments, corporations. All Democrats reflexively use Alinsky tactics now.

    What we need is a “sunny optimist”.

    Dave: I’d like it if you looked into interviewing Daniel Horowitz of Conservative Review, about immigration. He was on Dennis Prager Friday, and he has some very original and forceful ideas.

    Chief’s best line, “People don’t like to admit they’re wrong.” Was stridently Never-T in 2016, thoroughly uneasy after the election (because of the unknown), and since then have separated policy from person—with mixed, but relatively sane results.

    I was wrong.

    At the same time, was looking at Democrats/liberals and recalling a lyric penned by The Who’s John Entwistle (“The Quiet One”), “I ain’t quiet. Everybody else is too loud.” Punch all Nazis, and half the country is Nazi territory. Berkeley/Milo. Girls-only Wonder Woman screenings (hi Steeze). Parkland and the #CNNTownHall. Kavanaugh. Covington. Smollett. Orange Man burps and we’re all gonna die. Free speech in the public square should be controlled by Sundar Pachai, Jack Dorsey, Mark Zuckerberg, and Susan Wojcicki. (Wrongthink? You are not a person.) When your coveted pundits are Alyssa Milano, Kathy Griffin, Robert DeNiro and Bill Maher, you’ve played your way off the field. #OverIt

    Now I’m buying popcorn and enjoying the ride.
