Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America have whiplash from all the media hyperbole in the wake of Andrew McCabe getting fired, almost all of it from people who have never read the inspector general’s report. They also hammer President Trump for gloating about McCabe’s ouster and McCabe for suggesting his firing was a political hit job from Trump when multiple DOJ officials recommended it. They also applaud the media for finally noticing a series of bombings in Austin, Texas, which have killed or injured several people in a story reminiscent of the Unabomber. And they have some fun with D.C. city council member Trayon White alleging that the Rothschilds control the weather to bring calamity to American cities and then swoop in to pay for the cleanup and take control of the cities.More
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud conservative columnist and “Need to Know” podcast host Mona Charen for speaking the hard truth that too many on the right are willing to look the other way on President Trump’s personal behavior – and even the Roy Moore story – in an effort to achieve political goals. They also rip Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel for looking at the litany of mistakes and missed opportunities for authorities to stop the Stoneman Douglas shooting and flippantly concluding, “If ifs and buts were candy and nuts, then O.J. Simpson would still be in the record books.” And they shake their heads as NBC interviews Ivanka Trump at the Olympics and asks her whether she believes her father’s accusers.More
Happy Reagan’s Birthday everyone! Today, Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud Vice President Mike Pence for bringing Otto Warmbier’s father as his guest to the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics in South Korea and keeping the focus on North Korean repression in the midst of the communist regime’s charm offensive during in the games. They’re also exasperated as President Trump gives his political opponents and the media new fodder for criticism as Trump flippantly suggests Democrats were treasonous for not applauding good news during his State of the Union address last week. And they’re deeply frustrated as an illegal immigrant previously deported for drunk driving is now charged with the death of Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and his Uber driver – once again while drunk and in the U.S. illegally. They also slam the media for biased coverage of the immigration debate, dismissing stories like this and focusing almost exclusively on the success stories of young people in the nation illegally.More
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America enjoy seeing Democrats get accused of caving in the shutdown standoff and seeing the avalanche of leftist criticism aimed at Chuck Schumer. They also shake their heads as the Pennsylvania Supreme Court rules that the current congressional map is unconstitutional gerrymandering and a new map must be drawn, likely costing the Republicans seats. And they’re disgusted as North Korea keeps finding ways to turn the Winter Olympics in South Korea into an opportunity to glorify its own communist dictatorship, and media figures like NBC’s Lester Holt seem only too happy to help.More
This week on this very sedate and polite episode of GLoP, the boys pass the talking stick and chat about the shutdown, Stormy Daniels, a movie you haven’t seen in a while and are reluctant watch again, and yes, some LIVE coverage of the Oscar nominations!More

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for December 19, 2017 it’s edition number 154 and we call it the Did Trump Dump Blacks? edition of the show with your hosts Hartford radio guy Todd Feinburg and nanophysicist Mike Stopa.
This week, we will discuss a pair of interesting articles about the African American community and the Trump Administration (the first is called Black America and Donald Trump and the second, from Vox, is The past year of research has made it very clear: Trump won because of racial resentment). The eternal question is naturally why do Blacks support the Democrats so overwhelmingly when the Democrats are working so hard to keep them down and marginalized? Also, was Trump in a position to break that mold only to surrender to racial dog whistles so as to appeal to his racist voter base? What is going on in the heads of the left if they think this is really what’s going on?More
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America enjoy watching the Russians get barred from competing in the 2018 Winter Olympics because of an ongoing doping scandal, and they also get a kick out of the International Olympic Committee suddenly caring about corruption. They also shake their heads as Steve Bannon tries to discredit Mitt Romney’s denunciation of Roy Moore by saying Moore served in Vietnam and Romney avoided it by “hiding behind his religion.” And they scold Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake, who not only condemns Roy Moore but is contributing to liberal Democrat Doug Jones.More
Savannah Guthrie is a drama queen (and a guilty one at that!); thanks for nothing, Cokie Roberts; Megyn Kelly — the new NBC superstar?; and Kira has harsh words for John Conyers and the people who keep voting for him. Plus, a royal wedding!More
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are thrilled to see Illinois Rep. Luis Gutierrez planning to leave Congress and take his toxic, divisive immigration rhetoric with him. They also slam Project Veritas for trying to plant a fake accusation against Roy Moore with the Washington Post in an attempt to discredit the Post’s earlier stories on Moore. And they they sigh as President Trump takes a political shot at Elizabeth Warren by calling her ‘Pocahontas’ while honoring Navajo Code Talkers from World War II at the White House, not because Warren doesn’t deserve criticism for her suspect claims of Cherokee heritage but for injecting politics into a a ceremony that should have been free of it.More
Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for November 21, 2017 it is the “Smelling Like a Charlie Rose” edition of the podcast — *and* it is our podcast number 150! — with your hosts radio guy Todd Feinburg and nanophysicist Mike Stopa.
Our topics this week are, first, is there something wrong with Hillary? Hillary lambasts Donald Trump for being a sexual predator in the White House with no apparent sense of irony. None. Even Mika Brzezinski is appalled at her lack of, er, tone???More
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America celebrate the coup that no one in Zimbabwe will call a coup, as despotic leader Robert Mugabe is placed under house arrest. They also fire back at Joe Biden as the former vice president either suggests the hero who stopped the church shooter in Texas should not have been able to have a semi-automatic rifle or he ignored a perfectly good question about him wanting to restrict the rights of law-abiding citizens. And they scratch their heads as Rush Limbaugh points out that Roy Moore was a Democrat at the time his alleged sexual assaults took place and other Democrats at the time said nothing about him.More
Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for November 14, 2017, it’s the Overseas Trump edition of the show with your hosts, Hartford CT radio maven Todd Feinburg and all things nano person Mike Stopa. This week, we have a Filipino flavor to the podcast in honor of Trump’s visit to and bromance beginning with Rodrigo Duterte. And, in the latest edition of the Florida man saga, who is Ja Du and why does he think, in spite of all evidence to the contrary, that he is Filipino? Isn’t he culturally appropriating? Does he need a bathroom all his own? And, more seriously, why does someone who “identifies” as a different race or ethnicity need to *be* that race or ethnicity? Isn’t it enough to simply *like* Filipino food, clothing, dance, and culture? Why does Ja Du need to actually *be* Filipino? Is it possibly more a denial of his own culture – a need to rebel – that is driving him to insist that his real ethnicity is something else?
We then get into the developing relationship between Duterte and Trump. Are they, perhaps, a match made in heaven? Who are the forgotten people of the Philippines? Isn’t the system there rigged far worse than the system here?More
