Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club political podcast for May 29, 2019. It is the Average White Man edition of the show with your well above average white men hosts radio guy Todd Feinburg and AI guy Mike Stopa. This week's edition, number 226 (!!!!), features tales of white men and black men, heroism and infamy, glory and shame.

First, the race within the race: research shows that the Democrats would prefer a female to a male presidential candidate, a person of color to a caucasian. So why then are the leading Dem candidates average white (old) males? We discuss.

Then, cognitive dissonance writ large strikes the left as new revelations about Martin Luther King's sexual depravity surface in an article penned by Pulitzer Prize winning King biographer David Garrow. We discuss Monica Showalter's take on the issue as described in her insightful American Thinker column here. Do we need to start re-naming all the schools, streets, public buildings etc? What about the claim that if you support Trump you are giving tacit approval to his objectionable behaviors (e.g. P***y grabbing)?

We have our shower thoughts, sure. And our hidden gem is from Sly and the Family Stone: If You Want Me to Stay. Enjoy!

G'Day Podcast Mates and welcome to another edition of the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast, number 225!!! it is the Trump Impeachment edition with your unimpeachable hosts radio guy Todd Feinburg and AI guy Mike Stopa.

This week we discuss the continued, unabated mania that the left has for impeaching Trump and we ask: who suffers most from this blindfolded denial? Are there Dems who will be elected because the likes of Nadler and Schiff spend the remainder of the 116th Congress retracing the sterile steps of Robert Mueller and his Hillary-supporting attack dogs looking for actual Russian collusion? Or does this appear (as Nancy Pelosi seems to think) to be a losing strategy?

Another way to ask this is simply this: can the left in America ever really get over the 2016 election? Can the average upper middle class elitist coastal-dwelling liberal ever accept that it is okay to just allow Trump to be President as the legitimately elected leader of the nation? Their mantra has been, until now, "this cannot stand." Needless to say, that is an infantile response to an adverse event. You don't learn anything about the world reacting that way.

Next, speaking of "adverse" events, the Liberals (read: the right) in Australia have won a stunning election. It appears that every poll and every pundit predicted that Scott Morrison's government would go down to defeat and yet they won a third term. It thus ranks with Brexit and Trump as one of the major triumphs of the burgeoning populist movement. When the U.S. is finally overwhelmed by illegal aliens Australia might be the logical place to escape. We ask (everyone is asking) how did the polls get it so wrong?

Our shower thoughts (Mike talks about Game of Thrones) yes! And our hidden gem this week is from folk legend Gordon Bok with Ann Muir: "Freedom on the Wallaby." Enjoy!

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for May 15, 2019 it is the FREE LUNCH (Yesss!) edition of the show, number 224 (omgggg) with you charmingly lunchable hosts radio guy Todd Feinburg and AI guy Mike Stopa.

This week, we begin with an assessment of the Dems race to the bottom. Who can grovel and apologize in the most humiliating fashion? Beto is in the lead at the moment for his histrionic avowal of white privilege on The View recently. But they are are racing backwards, Red Books in hand, begging to be forgiven for not being sufficiently downtrodden and victimesque.

Is this really the winning strategy for the D-persons?

Then, we talk about the recent kerfuffle in Warwick, Rhode Island where they are lunch-shaming the poor kids whose parents don't fork up the lunch money; to wit, they are giving the deadbeats' kids cold lunches (sunflower butter sandwiches??? Yukkk! sounds cruel and unusual to me!).

Finally (say it like the Donald) Chaaeenuh! Is this trade war actually the one issue in the entire body politic that everyone agrees on? I mean, Chuck tweeting to Donald: hold the line!!! Bipartisanship and inter-party comity courtesy of the Commies. Same as it ever was, I guess.

Our shower thoughts, of course. Our hidden gem? From the Disney cover album Stay Awake, Bonnie Raitt performing Baby Mine from Dumbo! Enjoy!

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political podcast my sweeties! Come to refill the old political obsession tank? Here to procure that pithy but deep diatribe fix? Well you are in the right place! This is edition number 223 and we call it the "No Match Podcast" with your absolutely unmatchable hosts, Right Coast radio guy Todd Feinburg and Left Coast AI guy Mike Stopa (the handsome one). This week we have our dear friend and special guest Jessica Vaughan, she of the Director of Research for the Center for Immigration Studies, to discuss with us the return (did I hear anyone say "Hallelujah"???) of the No Match letters that are now going out to every employer in America who submits an I9 form for even one employee whose name and social security number do not match what is in the Social Security database.

Jessica tells us that many of these no matches are just...typos! Many are just...name changes! And many are (shhhh) illegal aliens either using stolen or fabricated SS#'s. This is where the actual problem is. The Democrats know it. The Chamber of Commerce knows it. And they are screaming that these letters are going out and good lord that is a good thing!

Next, we discuss the concept of Universal Basic Income. Tried in a million places under a billion conditions. Is it effective and reducing welfare state bureaucracy? Isit a good idea to give succeeding generations of people (Americans) the idea that there just is no need to work or make anything of yourself? Is it possible to defend this idea of reducing everyone to dependent status at all? We try. We try.

Then, our shower thought...conceived in showers...about anything. And our hidden gem this week? from Son Seals, Telephone Angel. Enjoy!

Welcome dear podcast addicts to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for May 1, 2019 - Workers of the World Unite! You have nothing to lose but your CHAINS!!!). This is the $2T Podcast edition of the podcast (from the department of redundancy department). We are your hosts, radio guy Todd Feinburg and AI guy Mike Stopa.

This week, Chuck and Nancy are giddy that they went to the White House, asked for, basically, the store, and DJT (or so they claim) *gave* it to them to the tune of 2 trillion (with a "t") for our crumbling roads and bridges. (and what else, pray? ...or should I say "prey"?).

Then, Joe Biden decides to start his presidential campaign by calling Trump a racist. This is new? We explore the White supremacist = antifa equivalency. What did Trump really say? Why does the media get away with a perpetual lie? (why is the sky blue?).

Our shower thoughts, yea! And our hidden gem for the week, from the British Inavsion era, the Hollies: Look Through Any Window. Enjoy!

Welcome friends to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for April 24, 2019 it is the I-Word edition of the show with your T-Word ("terrific") hosts Todd Feinburg, radio guy, east coast and Mike Stopa, AI guy, west coast. We are here every week to blast you with the latest news and political commentary that you so deeply need.

This week, the I-Word. Impeachment. Who be fer it and who be agin it? Does Rachel Maddow have any choice really? It matters not a whit what the Mueller report said, Maddow and her like-minded fellow travellers were going to continue to be pro-impeachment no matter what. That's what happens when you are insulated from empiricism. But how about the legacy media like WaPo or the NYT? And then, how about the Dems, the Reps, the candidates? We will analyze.

And speaking of candidates erstwhile Harvard Law professor Liz Warren is out ahead of the curve in the wonk world *and* with calling for DJT impeachment. Is Liz going to surprise everyone and walk away with the nomination? We remain to be convinced...but we are pondering.

Our shower thoughts are provocative (what did you think?) and our hidden gem this week is from the New Broadway Cast of Pippin, Morning Glow. This is a fabulous piece of music. Enjoy!

Welcome HLC listeners, Buddhists, Jains, Christians, Muslims and ye of no faith at all! Welcome indeed to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast number 220, yes you heard right. That's number 220! This is the Judge da Buddha edition of the show with your judgemental hosts Todd Feinburg on the East Coast and Mike Stopa on the Left coast.

Today we discuss the latest Dem phenom, South Bend Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg. He of the Afghanistan tour (while mayor!), he of the openly gay (since 2015), he of the really garden variety liberal political opinions. He of the highly articulate Harvard speak. Is he real? Is he in fact the Bill Weld of the Democrat party? We discuss.

Then, Israel, Oh, Israel. The Trump administration has been better to Israel than any administration in history. They have accepted Israeli annexing of the Golan, they have signaled willingness to allow Israeli annexing of the West Bank. Why are American Jews writing lengthy missives denouncing Trump's policies? Losing a little of the flock there, Moses?

Our shower thoughts, yes? Some comments on the burning church in Paris. And 88 years ago today Louisiana was six feet under water (most of it anyway). The story inspired Randy Newman to write Louisiana 1927. Enjoy!

Welcome friends and lovers to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast number 219. (Whoa Nellie!) It is the Homeland Insecurity edition of the show with your rock-solid hosts radio guy Todd Feinburg and AI guy Mike Stopa. This week, rumblings (at last) in the department of homeland security and Kirstjen Nielsen is (at last!) out, out, OUT!!! She of the Bush ideology, the foot dragging, love-those-dreamers persuasion. And now in charge (for the moment) it appears to be the Red Cross Knight Stephen Miller. Is it possible that the Trump Administration is finally going to actually get serious about the issue that won him the White House? Hope so.

Then, we discuss the Dems plan for a nationwide $15 minimum wage. Oh how jolly. I'm sure that will go over really big in Mississippi. Good luck.

Our shower thoughts are scintillating as always. And, a propos of rich getting richer and poor getting poorer we bring you as our hidden gem Blood Sweat and Tears' rendition of God Bless the Child. Enjoy!

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club political podcast for April 3, 2019, episode number 218 (!!!) it is the Tactile Politics edition of the show with your touchy-feely hosts radio guy Todd Feinburg and AI guy Mike Stopa.

This week, we return to an earlier era where we used to bring you *three* topics. Yes! This week you get a bonus topic. And, without further adieu, they are these.

  1. We bring you up to date on the Mueller/Barr collapse of the collusion narrative melodrama. Barr plans to release the Mueller report ASAP. ASAP is not fast enough for the Dems who need something to scream about.
  2. Then, Creepy Uncle Joe - what can we say? Answer: a lot!
  3. And on to Air Disasters. Whither Boeing now? We will discuss.

Shower thoughts? Of course.

And this week's hidden gem, in honor of his 77th would be birthday, Leon Russell's version of Good Time Charlie's Got the Blues. Enjoy!

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for March 25, 2019 it is the Mulling Mueller edition of the show with your mellow mulling hosts radio guy Todd Feinburg and AI guy Mike Stopa. This is (you counting?) episode number 217!

This week it is all Mueller all the time. The report is out. Barr and Rosenstein have chimed out the results. No collusion! No obstruction! Complete exoneration!

Golly life is good, no?

The evidence is so convincing that a range of heretofore diehard leftist #Resistance fighters have issued apologies on twitter for having accused Trump of conspiracy, collusion and *treason*. Some examples:

@XavierBecerraXavier Becerra

The release of the #MuellerReport has been a shock of cold water to all of we #Resistance members. Accept with dignity that @POTUS is #fullyexonerated. Let's make it a learning experience. #eggonface

@FullFrontalSamB Full Frontal

So embarrassed by #MuellerReport I'm b'ding from my eyes (and elsewhere). Time to swallow hard and accept people's verdict fm Election 2016. Still oppose @realdonaldtrump policies, but time to get woke from #PutinPuppet delusion.

@GeorgeTakeiGeorge Takei

Just as hard as coming out, but Barr and Rosenstein reading of #MuellerReport leave no choice: #nocollusion, #noobstruction.

@SarahKSilvermanSarah Silverman

It's time for #resistance diehards to STFU and accept @POTUS #exonerated. Our liberal brand is corrupted if we can't accept what all dentally challenged white trash plainly see. F-- those CNN A-holes who led us down this fantasy highway. #Bernie2020.

@TheRickWilson Rick Wilson

Live by #muellerinvestigation die by #Mullerinvestigation. Even hack #nevertrump consultants dining on crow tonight.

Sobering. Humbling. If the left can live up to these intellectually courageous standards then so should we!

We have our shower thoughts! We have our hidden gem: John Mayer's My Stupid Mouth. Enjoy!

Welcome mama bears and daddy bears to this the 216th edition of the Harvard Lunch Club political podcast - the Kraft Bears edition of the show - with your unbearable hosts, east coast radio guy Todd Feinburg and west coast AI guy Mike Stopa. We come to you every week with the pithy, the provocative and the funny stories that, well, that make you thirst for more.

This week, we discuss Robert Kraft, New England Patriots owner, winner of an unprecedented six Super Bowl Titles and (loyal?) patron of heretofore thriving establishments such as the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, Florida. As you surely know, Bob was caught with his hand, er, in the fortune cookie jar and rumor has it that there is videotape. Mr. Kraft says no. We shall see. The house of ill repute in question is more than just a whore house, however, and is a wing of a sex trafficking network.

Questions:

  1. Should it matter to Kraft and his sentence and his future reputation that the prostitutes he patronized were (assuming they were) effectively sex slaves? and
  2. Should Kraft be made to serve 100 hours of community service (as first offenders typically do) just like anyone else as a penalty?

Then, we're all about the bears...the sun bears, also known (adorably) as the honey bears! These little southeast asian critters have, according to world renowned scientists, exhibited the ability to mimic the facial expressions of their bear-buddies. Is that remarkable? We will discuss.

We have (you guessed, right?) our shower thoughts and our hidden gem - one of Todd's favorite songs from one of his favorite groups - is Give a Damn, by Spanky and Our Gang. Enjoy!

Hello podcast fans, young and old, big and small and welcome to this edition of the Harvard Lunch Club Political podcast, number 215(!!!) the Irredeemable AOC edition of the show with your lost-soul hosts, east coast radio guy Todd Feinburg and west coast AI guy Mike Stopa. Each week we bring to you the meat, the core, the essence of the political scene with cutting insight, guffaw-inducing humor and a pinch of profundity.

This week we bring you the infamous Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, the big AOC, the woman of the hour. It is the sunset of capitalism and the dawn of a new human stewardship of the sacred space-travelling temple that we call planet Earth. It is a moment of renewal, it is a platform so sincere that the trees will be hugging us back. AOC forever!

Hello there, Lunchers one and all! Welcome again to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for February 28, 2019 it is the Dirty Rotten Scoundrels edition of the podcast with your honest and upstanding hosts, radio guy Todd Feinburg and AI guy Mike Stopa (the handsome one). We come to you every week to bring you thew'hbnia'enisn'iv42v....ooops, fell asleep there.

This week we bring you two topics, but they're not quite what we intended. We thought to wax eloquent about the Trump-Kim summit but we were - by news breaking in our faces - sidetracked by the Cohen testimony....so we talk about that.

Then, second topic, true to advertising, is the push for reparations for African Americans to recompense, as it were, for slavery. Liz Warren jumps om the bandwagon and goes so far as to create her own, new bandwagon calling for reparations for Native Americans...because we stole it all from them....and they deserve to get some of it back...

This is a fascinating topic given the injun's mouth from which it emanates. We discuss.

Our shower thoughts are in there (you better believe it) and our hidden gem, well, not so hidden....Todd gets angy at Mike here...is Coldplay's I Will Fix You. Enjoy!

Hello you fellow right wing, knuckle-dragging troglodytes and welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast number 213!!! it is the Ten in Twenty edition of the show with your 2 in 2 hosts radio guy Todd Feinburg and AI guy Mike Stopa. We come to you every week....but you *know* that already, don't you? What, you ask, are the topics for this week? Where, you ask, is the beef?

Okay already!

Topic number one is victimology! Jussie Smollet! Ayn Rand and Immanuel Kant! What is the origin of the victimhood mania on the left? Did it start with Jesus? with Kant? with Jack Bailey? (honestly, No Prize if you get *that* reference!!!). We will discuss.

Then, the Bern enters the fray. Prepare for twice-Berned! We review the top ten lists of Dem candidates and we give our kibbitzing babble!

Then, in our shower thoughts, Mike refers to the Jenga-playing robot which is way cool!

Finally, our hidden gem (is it a gem, really? or is it hidden for a reason?) is Velvet Revolver's rendition of Slither! Enjoy!

Welcome caffeine-addicts to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast number 212 (!!) with your frazzled hosts radio guy Todd Feinburg or the right coast and AI guy Mike Stopa of the left coast. We are here every week to bring you the action, bring you the news, we got the mojo, ain't got no blues!

This week our topics are: 1. Gallup (yes, that Gallup) has noted a 7% bump in the President's approval rating in one month. Holy Homecoming Queen, Batman! What popularity! What for? We explore.

Then, the revolution has taken a big step backward. Panera has exited the world of "it takes a coffee shop" and gone back to capitalism. The last so-called Panera Cares (pay whatever you think is fair) store in Boston is closing. That there are idiots out in the world who honestly think this was a good idea is profoundly depressing every day. So to see thee brain-dead ideas die and decay in front of their eyes is truly heartening.

Our shower thoughts? Yes! Our hidden gem, from Mike and the Mechanics, The Living Years. Enjoy.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for February 4, 2019 - it's the *we win the Superbowl again, ed....* uh, oops, no. It's the Red Faced Racist edition of the show, number 211, with your pale faced hosts, radio guy Todd Feinburg and AI guy Mike Stopa. This week we bring to you the unyielding Governor of Virginia, Ralph Northam, he the new posterboy for harmless hilarity in the Al Jolson spirit. Will he resign? Why *should* he resign? If you are a Republican who loves to see the Democrats smolder with, er, egg (or something) on their faces then you want Ralph to stay! The new face of the #Resistance! Gotta love it!

Then, Gladys Knight sang the National Anthem at the Superbowl (did I mention that the New England Patriots won the Superbowl? their third in five years? their dynasty-continuing 6th??? Well, I did now!!!)...where was I? oh, yes, Gladys Knight - she of the Foundations of Motown fame, was interviewed by Don Lemon and Don seemed to suggest that Gladys's career was going to take a beating (cf. Chrisette Michele) because she was (in the words of Colin Kaepernick lawyer Mark Gerigos) crossing a picket line...by going to the Superbowl...and by singing the National Anthem...she's crossing a Picket Line. She is betraying the #Resistance.

Are you kidding me?!!

We will discuss.

We share our innermost (i.e. our shower) thoughts with you. And the hidden gem this week is from the pre-addled age of Ozzy Osbourne: Crazy Train! Enjoy!

Welcome caffeine addicts to the Harvard Lunch Club political podcast number 210 for January 30, 2019 it is the Venti Macchiato edition of the show with your big gulp hosts Todd Feinburg, east coast radio guy, and Mike Stopa, west coast graph machine learning guy. We come to you every week, as you know, to bring you the best, the most interesting and the deepest analysis of the events of the day. I.e. we da guys, y'all!!!!

This week, we focus on two of the entrants into the 2020 presidential race, coffee guy Howard Schultz (in the right corner) and Flaming, economic idiot Kamala Harris in the left corner (and we do mean left). Kamals says abolish private health insurance. Howard says, not so fast. We report, you decide.

Our shower thoughts, profound as always. Our hidden gem - Ravel's Pavane for a Dead Princess. (If you haven't heard it, you really must). enjoy!

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for January 23, 2019 number 209 it is the Indigenous Billionaires edition of the podcast (yeah, we're not exactly sure what that means either). We are your poor but proud hosts, radio guy Todd Feinburg and AI guy Mike Stopa and we come to you every week with the scintillating discussion of the issues of the day that - we're not kidding here - you're just not going to find anywhere else.

This we we have two topics...That's no surprise; we have two topics every week. We will discuss the intellectual and economic (and moral!) foundation of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez' argument that we'd all be more virtuous if we just took a boatload more money from the filthy rich and then gave it to the poor. Why is it that the ideas of the free market that (in case you haven't noticed) brought the world untold prosperity are after all so hard to grasp? We discuss.

Then, the Covington boys and the Indigenous Person. Man this is such a hoot. The guy (Nathan Phillips) has been interviewed about thirty times since Saturday and he has managed to say basically nothing coherent, nothing true and still he never repeats himself. If this is the wisdom that the Native People have left you can figure out why their culture is such a mess.

Our shower thoughts? YES! Our hidden gem? From Paul McCartney: "Ram." Enjoy!

Hello there, HLC mavens! Welcome to the HLC podcast for January 15, 2019 (this is Todd Feinburg's birthday week podcast) with your hosts, the aforementioned Todd Feinburg, radio guy, and Mike Stopa the as yet to be mentioned west coast AI guy. We are here every week etc. etc. as you well know.

This week, we discuss toxic masculinity as seen through the eyes of everyday guys who are shaving their ugly masculine faces and thinking deep inside about the sexual harassment that they are planning for the day...or something. Has Gillette blown away a significant part of their patronage by insulting men for being men?

Then, Donald continues to confront the ugly Swamp. The FBI has been after DJT from the beginning. The NYT says so! And they also say that there is actually no evidence that any collusion has taken place between Trump Inc. and Putin et al. We will discuss.

Todd waxes eloquent about the rock and roll documentary Oasis Supersonic. Mike shares the experience of having a colonoscopy in California. And our hidden gem for the week (continuing with Mike's sordid life psychodrama) is Red Rubber Ball by the Cyrkle....which hopefully means an end to all that! Enjoy dahling!

I should have known you'd bid me farewell,

There's a lesson to be learned from this and I've learned it very well.

Now I know you're not the only starfish in the sea,

If I never hear your name again it's all the same to me.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political podcast number O.M.G. 207 it is the Wall Walkout edition of the show with your holdout hosts radio guy Todd Feinburg and AI guy Mike Stopa (the handsome one...if I haven't said so yet).

This week, well, it is wall-to-wall (knew I was going to do that, didn't you?) Wall and Shutdown and Trump and the Dems and the battle royale. And in spite of the utter predictability of our topic we are (if we do say so ourselves) scintillating! You will enjoy!

We have our shower thoughts. And our hidden gem this week is from Red Hot Chili Peppers: Californication. Enjoy!

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for Yipes! January 2, 2019....yes, 2019! It is the Misguided Mitt edition of the show with your ever-on-target hosts, radio guy Todd Feinburg on the right coast and AI guy Mike Stopa (the handsome one) on the left coast.

This week, this very day, Mitt Romney, our former governor from Massachusetts and, did it really happen?!? candidate for president has decided to...to....to what exactly? to write an op ed in the Washington Post...to enter the fray...to slam the President....And, you may ask, to what end? Preparing for a run for President in 2020? Is that even allowed? Mitt's a Mormon so he can't have been drinking. We are not sure we can fathom what Mitt is thinking. But we can talk about it. And we do!

Then, Senator Mark Warner of Virginia writes an op ed of his own. His piece appears in the Charleston Gazette-Mail (a Pulitzer Prize-Winning Newspaper). The Senator takes issue with Mr. Trump's claim that the majority of the federal workers who are going without a paycheck during the shutdown (yes, in case you haven't noticed, the government or some part of it is shutdown) are Democrats. The Senator says they're not Democrats and hell, he has no idea whether they're Democrats or not.

Some simple statistics on the voting and registration patterns of Montgomery MD, and Fairfax, Arlington and Alexandria VA shed some light on how many of those federal employees are most likely Dems.

We provide our shower thoughts, of course. And this week's hidden gem, some serious rack chosen by Todd to start the New Year, is Deep Purple's Knockin' at Your Back Door. Enjoy!

Welcome Christmas celebrants to the Harvard Lunch Club Political podcast for Christmas Eve, 2018 it is number 205, the Shutdown Mad Dog edition of the show with your frothing at the mouth hosts Todd Feinburg, east coast WTIC radio guy and Mike Stopa, west coast AI guy. We come to you every week with the conversation, the chatter, the *philosophy* that you need to hear.

This week we discuss Mad Dog, aka James Mattis and his resignation. We discuss Syria (the proximal cause of Mad Dog's departure) and whether the grand old F.P.E. (foreign policy establishment) will ever finish sitting in the corner, holding their breath and turning blue. We are skeptical.

Then, the shutdown. What about it? Will it produce a wall in the end? We are skeptical here too. Todd is on the verge of going full #NeverTrump due to le Grande Orange's lack of discipline. His lack of ***what***???

Our shower thoughts? Piercing as always. Our hidden gem? 2000 Miles (It Must Be Christmas Time) by the Pretenders! Enjoy!

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for December 17, 2018 it's the Angry White Men edition of the show #204 with your bitter clinger White Hosts, radio guy Todd Feinburg and AI guy Mike Stopa (the handsome one). This week we ask: if the Dems are the party of inclusion, then why is it that the top three candidates for the Dem Presidential nomination for 2020 are, so far, three gnarly white guys? We say: amend the Constitution so that Ocasio-Cortez can run!

Then, the Dems are planning what next to do with healthcare. Status quo? All out socialism or something in between? Who knows. We will discuss.

Out shower thoughts? Scintillating as always. Our hidden gem? from Mannheim Steamroller: Veni, Veni (Oh Come, Oh Come Emmanuel). Enjoy!

Welcome my friends to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast number 203 it is the Blood in the Water edition of the show with your feeding frenzy hosts radio guy Todd Feinburg and AI guy Mike Stopa. This week we focus, nay, we obsess, on the emerging picture of what makes Trump tick and how will he handle the ever-circling legacy media sharks because they smell the blood in the water! they are looking to *bring Trump down*! Will they finally have there way? Or will Trump just swim like the giant whale he is merrily along enjoying all the attention that the efforts at impeachment will attract to him? (like he doesn't have enough attention already). We will discuss.

Our shower thoughts of course! And this week's hidden gem (continuing *someone's* psychodrama) is Dido's signature hit White Flag. Enjoy!

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political podcast number 202!!! it is the Tear Jerker edition of the show with you sob-sister hosts radio guy Todd Feinburg and AI guy Mike Stopa.

This week, the wave crested, the migrant invasion massed to the border, threw their handful of projectiles and, with a tiny little burst of caustic gas were repelled by the good guys. Meanwhile, the media continues to make the migrant rabble (overwhelmingly composed of young men) into a march of the saints. They squeeze every scene and every anecdote for every pitiful tear they can get. Because they are colluding with all the other powerful forces in America to get Americans to say: "oh, hell....just let them in after all!!!"

Are Americans wise enough to know that 5000 today is 50,000 tomorrow is...(y'know, like, etcetera)??? Time will tell.
