Tag: Colin Kaepernick

It’s all about mob rule and how to defeat it as Dave welcomes former ESPN and Fox Sports Commentator and Writer Jason Whitlock onto the show. Now at Outkick.com, Jason explains what’s behind Colin Kaepernick’s knee problem and his uncontrollable compulsion to insult the nation on social media. Mr. Whitlock also weighs in on the destructive nature of seeing oneself as a perpetual victim in a conversation that touches on everything from Frederick Douglas’ 1852 speech to the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the rush of corporate executives to genuflect to the mob, and the problematic letter that 153 prominent intellectuals recently signed warning about “cancel culture.” We know you’ll enjoy Jason’s exchange with Dave.

Then, as if one fascinating conversation were not enough, Dave talks with Ricochet Member Jenna Stocker about her recent article, “Americans Are Hungry For The Fight.”  Jenna talks about life in Minneapolis in the wake of the riots, and why she thinks its beyond time for leaders in Congress and elsewhere to grow a spine and fight back against a dangerous radicalism.  She maintains that Americans are yearning for leadership and will support it. “America and our Constitutional freedoms are worth the fight,” Jenna wrote in her article.  As she talks with Dave, we think you’ll come to understand this former Marine Officer’s passion for the nation and why she says that we need more General Pattons.  

Rob Long is in for Jim again today and he and Greg are tackling three crazy martinis.  First, they wade into the fight over the Theodore Roosevelt statue outside New York City’s Museum of Natural History, and Rob offers a deal to those who want to tear it down. They also discuss the drama surrounding the supposed resignation of U.S. Attorney Geoffery Berman, who then said he had not resigned and would not leave, only to be fired the next day. And they weigh in on Brett Favre likening Colin Kaepernick to Pat Tillman because both gave up NFL careers for the causes they believed in.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are back!  Today, they enjoy watching Democrats wasting time and money in pushing Rep. Joseph Kennedy III to launch a primary challenge against incumbent Democratic Sen. Ed Markey, but Jim also explains why it’s long past time to stop fawning over the Kennedys.  Jim also dives into his latest piece, in which he slams the social justice warriors for refusing to accept many goodwill gestures from the NFL so long as Colin Kaepernick remains without a team.  And they roll their eyes as Sen. Kamala Harris tells donors she is not comfortable with the Medicare for All legislation pushed by 2020 rival Sen. Bernie Sanders, even though Harris co-sponsored the legislation.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for September 6, 2018 (number 190!!!) it is the Zero Loyalty edition of the podcast with your unfailingly loyal hosts radio guy Todd Feinburg and AI-guy Mike Stopa.

This week, in our loyal way, we discuss the treachery inside the White House, the head-rearing of the Deep State, the grandiosity-possessed #NeverTrumper with a grudge who has decided to launch a tirade against the President because of some confused psychodrama going on in his head. (Trust me, it’s a “he”). Does it make any sense to rail against Trump as being “un-democratic” while speaking furtively from your un-elected sinecure in the public employ?

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America look through a rough and often disturbing 2017 to find three things they’re each thankful for in politics and beyond this year.  From some important accomplishments to the arrival of an important new figure in Washington to the bravery of people in different walks of life, Jim and Greg find some silver linings in our toxic political culture.  Happy Thanksgiving!  There will be no podcast on Thursday.  Please join us again on Friday.

The NFL: Now a Case Study in Destructive Leftism


Seriously, Colin Kaepernick? You’re really doing this?

Yep, he’s filed a grievance against the NFL owners under their collective bargaining agreement, alleging that they have colluded to “deprive Mr. Kaepernick of employment rights in retaliation for Mr. Kaepernick’s leadership and advocacy for equality and social justice and his bringing awareness to peculiar institutions still undermining racial equality in the United States.”

There are plenty of people on social media making statements in anger, trying to score political points for their side, and demanding their viewpoint be implemented at the expense of others. It’s become all about defeating the other side and advancing an agenda, but at what cost? Where are the leaders who will put what’s […]

Think Trump Is Losing The NFL vs Flag Fight? Ask Mike Dukakis.


NOTE: There’s a special bonus weekend-edition of the Michael In the Morning podcast on the NFL vs. Trump fight.

My social media timeline is filled with “smart” people attacking Trump over his current fight with athletes protesting the American flag and the national anthem. Much of the criticism includes eye-rolling over notion that showing disrespect to the flag is a big deal. It’s clear many people in the mainstream media think the notion that the flag should be respected is silly.

Trump throws down on player protests against the national anthem at the NFL, and scores big points with his political base. Jay Caruso of the Fifth Estate podcast (and huge NFL fan) offers analysis. And political consultant and longtime Trump activist Seth Weathers talks about why Trump’s bad language is such a good play on the field of American politics.

David French of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are glad to see Kim Jong-Un has publicly back down from his threats to fire missiles towards Guam and discuss whether some new blunt talk from Defense Secretary James Mattis made the decision an easy one.  David rejects the push by the left and some on the right to move or remove Confederate memorials and statues and instead proposes more memorials to honor Union, slave, and free black figures from the war to provide more context.  And they roll their eyes as an ESPN commentator says he hopes a positive outcome from Charlottesville will be Colin Kaepernick getting a job in the NFL again.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America welcome the news that over a million Americans left the food stamp rolls in the first few months of the Trump administration and discuss new state work requirements and immigration law enforcement as contributing factors to this continuing decrease in government dependence.  They’re also exasperated as Google fires an engineer for writing an internal memo criticizing Google for a diversity culture that is not at all diverse and makes people feel as though they’ll get fired if they say anything that doesn’t square with corporate ideology.  And they get a kick out of Spike Lee scheduling a “United We Stand for Colin Kaepernick” protest outside of NFL headquarters later this month.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America condemn Republican Senators John McCain, Susan Collins, and Lisa Murkowski for failing to deliver on their campaign promises to repeal and replace Obamacare during a vote late Thursday night, while also stressing the mistakes made by GOP leaders and the major flaws in the “skinny repeal”.  Jim mocks new White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci for threats and vulgar comments about his colleagues, underscoring already fractious conditions in the new administration.  In an attempt to end the week on a good note, Jim and Greg discuss a new poll showing that more fans stopped watching the NFL last season because of the national anthem protests than for any other reason.

Victor Davis Hanson explains why many Americans are increasingly removed from the nation’s core political, economic, and cultural institutions.

Okay, I had settled down in my basement Mancave to watch the game between N.C. State (my alma mater) and Clemson (a team I always root for unless they are playing my school). Overall, the game was a defensive struggle. I knew my team was in for trouble when we had several illegal procedure penalties […]
