Following the so-called “trial of the century” that led to the 5’6″ Mexican drug lord Joaquin Guzman Loera, better known as El Chapo, his wife, Emma Coronel Aispuro, who’s 30 years his junior, was arrested at Dulles International Airport just outside Washington D.C. in February on drug trafficking charges. After El Chapo received a life sentence plus 30 years for his crimes, the Department of Justice is right on the heels of the Sinaloa Cartel with this latest arrest. But is it enough to take down one of Mexico’s most notorious and dangerous drug cartels?
 
My guest today is Jerry Dunleavy, he’s a Justice Department reporter with the Washington Examiner.
 
On today’s show, we’re going to discuss the case of El Chapo, the case that’s being built against his wife, and where American law enforcement is in the fight against these transnational criminal organizations.

Following the departure of President Donald Trump from the White House, the conservative movement has reached a fork in the road. On the one hand, it could continue down the path of Trumpism and lean into its nationalist populist ideology or, on the other, return to its more neoconservative roots of free-market capitalism and interventionist foreign policy. Either way, despite being the opposition party in 2021, conservatives find themselves in what many might argue as a familiar, yet comfortable position.
 
My guest today is Jane Coaston, she’s the host of “The Argument” with the New York Times.
 
On today’s show, we’re going to discuss the direction conservatism is heading in a post-Trump world, who takes up the mantle after Trump, and what we can expect on the horizon for the Right.

As part of the $2.3 trillion COVID relief bill that was passed by Congress and signed into law by President Trump in December 2020, the Pentagon has six months to release information about its UFO Task Force. Despite the fact that the government has been tight-lipped about UFOs, in 2020, the Pentagon formally released three videos of what they call “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena” that were previously reported by the New York Times in 2017. With these developments, are we finally getting an answer to the question of whether or not we’re alone in the universe? My guest today is Tom Rogan, he’s a commentary writer with the Washington Examiner. On today’s show, we’re going to discuss the fascination and drive to uncover the truth about UFOs and UAPs, what we can ascertain from the information that’s been released so far, and whether the government will deliver the Earth-shattering goods.

On what seemed like a quiet week following the Inauguration of President Biden, all eyes turned to Wall Street where a group of investors, known as Wall Street Bets on the website Reddit, assembled to completely catch everyone and their money off guard. By dumping their money into so-called “meme stocks,” companies like GameStop, AMC, and Blackberry saw their stock price surge by as much as 1,000%, creating a short squeeze. Hedge fund managers who were shorting the stock had to buy up these stocks to cover their losses, driving up the price even further. The market became so volatile that the stock trading app Robinhood notably had to temporarily halt trading. With these meme stocks seeing a massive decline since, what really happened to cause this type of chaos? My guest today is Kate Hyde, she’s an independent stock trader and contributor to the Spectator. On today’s show, we’re going to discuss the short squeeze, how the government is responding to it, what happened with Robinhood, and what’s on the horizon for Wall Street.

QAnon has taken a foothold in the American political dynamic unlike any conspiracy theory in recent memory. The big tent conspiracy theory that only used to exist on the fringe of the far-right seems to have gone mainstream as exemplified through the election of Donald Trump. Over the course of the last four years, Trump’s presidency gave rise to a movement that seeks to expose a global Satan-worshipping cabal of pedophiles and hold them accountable. And Trump was purportedly the only person willing to do it. So, what exactly is QAnon? My guest today is Travis View, he’s the host of the QAnon Anonymous podcast. On today’s show, we’re going to discuss the QAnon conspiracy theory, what they believe, what motivates them, and how it’s become such a destructive force in American politics.

Joe Biden was sworn in on Wednesday, January 20th as the 46th President of the United States, and he’s already hit the ground running. In his first day in Office, President Biden signed 17 executive orders, many of which were direct reversals of the Trump administration. The political dynamic in Washington has changed dramatically in just a few days. Is this a return to politics as usual or is America far beyond the point of no return? My guest today is Naomi Lim, she’s a White House reporter with the Washington Examiner who previously covered the Biden 2020 campaign. On today’s show, we’re going to discuss President Biden’s agenda, what he and Vice President Harris can realistically get done in Washington, and how these next four years will be different from the previous four. “Hashing it Out” is a podcast hosted by Siraj Hashmi, Washington Examiner’s commentary video editor and writer.

In the immediate aftermath of the riot on Capitol Hill on January 6th, the House voted to impeach President Trump, making him the first president ever to be impeached twice by the House of Representatives. Yet, in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic, many Americans are still struggling and Congress fails to deliver anything beneficial to its constituents, opting to impeach the president first. Are their priorities in order and is there any hope that things will get better? My guest today is Bridget Phetasy, she’s a comedian, writer, and host of the podcasts “Dumpster Fire” and “Walk-Ins Welcome.” On today’s show, we’re going to discuss how we got to this point as a country, what problems still exist that have only gotten worse, and how we can turn the tide. “Hashing it Out” is a podcast hosted by Siraj Hashmi, Washington Examiner’s commentary video editor and writer.
