It’s last GLoP of 2018 and we go out with a….shot of eggnog. Actually, we go out with some concise commentary (or rank punditry®, whichever your prefer) on the cuisine and beverages of the holiday, what the heck is going on at CBS, a fond farewell to Penny Marshall, a rave review for Spiderman: Into The Spider-Verse, and a pick for the 2018 time capsule. Thanks for all the Goldberg giggles in ’18 and we’ll see (hear?) you next year.

Jay is back. Mona and Jay lament the passing of the Weekly Standard, note the president’s ISO for COS, ask about the wall, talk a little Russia, a little Flynn, and Cohen, and praise the free press and Hedy Lamarr.

More

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America react to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announcing there will be a vote on the criminal justice reform bill known as the FIRST STEP Act. They also discuss Time magazine’s selection of Jamal Khashoggi and other murdered and persecuted journalists as the “Person of the Year” and take time to explain that no one can equate President Trump’s treatment of the media to the murders and imprisonment for the press in other parts of the world. And they assess MSNBC hosts Stephanie Ruhle and Ali Velshi being appalled that each person supposedly being considered by Trump to be the next chief of staff is a white male.

We’re a day late (but not a dollar short) and we’ve got two host on the high seas, so we call on our good pal Steven Hayward (the host of the Powerline Podcast) to sit in with Peter Robinson. Later, the great biographer Andrew Roberts joins to chat about his fantastic new book Churchill: Walking with Destiny, Brexit, and the rioting in France. Also, Mueller time, and is it curtains for The Weekly Standard? We certainly hope not.

Thanksgiving may be over, but Professors Richard Epstein and John Yoo are serving up a feast of legal analysis. Can the courts halt the president’s plan to keep out asylum seekers? Who won the Trump-John Roberts showdown? Is the appointment of Jeff Sessions’ interim replacement unconstitutional? What the hell is going on with Paul Manafort? And, most importantly, why is a New York judge giving an elephant his day in court?

All that plus Epstein in the kitchen, Yoo at Costco, and the chess tutorial you’ve all been waiting for.

More

Mona went splat and broke her wrist, but still shows up. She and Jay talk trade, Amazon and its critics, election fraud, Deep Fake fraud, Jim Acosta, entitlements, and the passing of three notable men.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America lament the loss of another GOP Senate seat as Democrat Kyrsten Sinema is declared the winner of the Arizona Senate race. They’re also not surprised as North Korea is found maintaining and even enhancing its ballistic missile program with numerous undeclared sites. They also react to National Review writer Kat Timpf being harassed at a New York City bar and being forced to leave because some people found out she worked for Fox News. And Jim pays tribute to the late Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee.

Our traditional format is two guests per show, but when we have someone as smart and loquacious as Ben Shapiro, we toss our traditions and do it live. We cover the mid-terms, we look at 2020, take a gander at Trump’s management style and a host of other host takes. Also, another edition of “What Are You Watching?” and Rob Long hosts a contest for new members. Join today! 

Music from this week’s episode: Ben by Michael Jackson

In a jam-packed hour of Law Talk, Professors Richard Epstein and John Yoo are tackling all the big questions: Should Michael Avenatti stand trial for his role in the Kavanugh hearings? What does international law have to say about the Jamal Khashoggi murder? What power does President Trump have to stop the migrant caravan from Central America? Plus, we argue the merits of the Commerce Department (forgive us, its sweeps), get called to account for inadvisable World Series predictions, and learn what kind of taxi passenger Professor Epstein is (spoiler alert: chatty).

The GLoP-sters (that’s Jonah Goldberg, Rob Long, and John Podhoretz) ruminate on the mad bomber, John’s daughter’s racy Bat Mitzvah Torah portion, the surprising second life success of Tim Allen’s Last Man Standing, caravans, and Halloween (the movie, not the holiday).

More

This week, the bomber is apprehended and Rob Long is not surprised, there’s a caravan headed our way, professional prognosticator Patrick Ruffini opines on his epic Tweet storm and makes some mid-term predictions, and the great Heather Mac Donald stops by to chat about her new book The Diversity Delusion: How Race and Gender Pandering Corrupt the University and Undermine Our Culture. Finally, some thoughts about Megyn Kelly, free speech, and…Halloween?

Music from this week’s podcast: Caravan by Van Morrison

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America sip three good martinis for conservatives today. They begin by highlighting Cherokee Nation’s slamming of Elizabeth Warren’s DNA test as being any sort confirmation that she belongs in its ranks. They also discuss Project Veritas exposing the McCaskill campaign in Missouri for taking great pains to prevent voters there from knowing how liberal McCaskill really is. And they chronicle the litany of bad press for Arizona Democratic Senate hopeful Kyrsten Sinema, including not caring if an American fought for the Taliban in 2003 and bringing in witches for an anti-war vote that same year.

More

It’s a rare single-topic Law Talk. As the Supreme Court drama finally comes to a close, Professors Richard Epstein and John Yoo deliver the last word on the Kavanaugh confirmation: the twists and turns of the original allegations, the theatrics of the Christine Blasey Ford hearing, the damage to the Court’s public standing, whether the time has come to change the confirmation process, and what changes we can expect with Kavanaugh on the court. Come for the internet’s finest legal analysis, stay for the insults of John Paul Stevens and the shady trips to Thailand.

More

That’s the song they play at the end – sung by Tony Bennett, whom Jay passed on the streets of New York the other day. Before they get to the moon, so to speak, Mona and Jay talk about North Korea, the Kavanaugh drama, and a host of other issues, including a perennial: personal responsibility. Who wants to take it? Noble and rewarded are those who do. 

More

We’ve reached peak news cycle. So much going on. And when that happens, we reach out to people who make it their business to cover the news: that’s the WSJ’s Bill McGurn and the Washington Post’s Bob Costa. They help us sort through the Kavanaugh controversy, the scandals in the Catholic Church, trade wars with China, and some predictions about the upcoming mid-terms. Also, Rob Long deconstructs the old show biz adage that “nobody knows anything.” Listen!

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America cheer Tennessee Democratic Senate hopeful Phil Bredesen for bucking the talking points from Washington Democrats and saying the Senate should move forward on the Kavanaugh nomination if Christine Ford refuses to testify. They also roll their eyes as California Rep. Anna Eshoo claims Ford does not have a political bone in her body, which is patently false, and another California congressman mocks the threats liberals are making against Maine Sen. Susan Collins over this issue. And they have fun with the news that many college students request and fill out absentee ballots but never mail them in because they have no idea where to get a stamp.

More

This week, the men of GLoP convene to discuss the passing of GLoP Hall of Fame members Burt Reynolds, Les Moonves #MeToo moment, Rob Long’s so-crazy-it-just-might-work pitch for a TV detective show, Corey Booker’s kooky (and totally fake) “Spartacus!” moment, and one GLoP host visits the epicenter of the counter-culture and reports back. Care to guess which one?

More

The Weekly Standard’s Michael Warren shares thoughts on who wrote the NYT op-ed and other topics. Jay and Mona then turn to Alex Jones and Rubio, the Democrats who can’t do civility, our overvaluation of the Supreme Court, and more.

More

This week, Jonah Goldberg and Rob Long cross the streams between their co-hosted GLoP podcast (John Podhoretz is off this week) and The Remnant. They talk about Rob’s career in Hollywood, WhatAbout-ism, cross country traveling, and sure, a bit of monkeying around.

More

This week, we do a Rico-Centric show with our regular crew and our two trusty editors: Jon Gabriel (Ricochet’s beloved EIC) and Bethany Mandel, the Madonna of The Main Feed. We talk about flagpoles, conservatives on social media, an insider’s view of Arizona, why Instagram is the best social media platform (after this one, natch) and of course, Lileks gives the lowdown on the Minnesota State Fair.

Music from this week’s episode: State Fair (opening title) by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II
