Jim Geraghty of National Review and Rich McFadden of Radio America react to news of yet another terror attack in the UK which targeted British Muslims outside of a London mosque after their evening prayers for Ramadan. They also discuss the Supreme Court’s announcement that they will take up the partisan gerrymandering case in the state of Wisconsin to determine whether or not the act is unconstitutional. And they respond to Erick Erickson’s sensationalist comments as he refers to the left as “America’s ISIS” and advocates for state secession.

Erick Erickson has been called one of the most powerful conservatives in America. He hosts the radio show “Atlanta’s Evening News with Erick Erickson” on WSB-AM and has guest hosted “The Rush Limbaugh Show.” Erick previously served as the editor-in-chief and CEO of the conservative political blog RedState, now runs the conservative website The Resurgent, and is a political contributor for CNN and Fox News. He took a stand against Donald Trump, even disinviting him to a Red State candidate forum. He speaks frankly about receiving threats during the 2016 election while battling serious family health issues, the alt-right, and political correctness. Erick, who is currently completing his Master’s of Divinity, analyzes cultural conservatism and the “church wing” of the Republican party and whether it had an impact in 2016. Where is he now on Trump? Watch to learn what’s changed. (Filmed aboard the 2016 Post Election Weekly Standard Cruise.)

Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook.

When conservatives criticized Facebook for spiking right-leaning content, CEO Mark Zuckerberg did something odd for a liberal tech titan: he listened. The kajillionaire invited several leading conservative voices to fly out to the left coast and share their concerns in person. Despite Zuckerberg’s sickening oversight of not inviting yours truly, I was impressed that he was savvy enough to call a summit.

Sure, his motivation was probably more PR and business development than the robust exchange of ideas, but you don’t see the New York Times or NBC News reacting this way to a couple days of snarky blog posts about media bias. Do I think Facebook will shed its liberal worldview and use Trending Topics to promote “Trump Correctly Accuses Bill Clinton of Rape” above “Lena Dunham Inspires Millions by Eating Lasagna Naked?” Of course not. Facebook is a progressive company staffed by progressive professionals who swim in a progressive ecosystem. But by starting a dialogue with conservatives, he might tip off his staff that half of the company’s users don’t enthusiastically support Hillary or Bernie.

Welcome to my semi-annual contemplation of life after Boehner, a habit of rumination so successful that there was an actual ruckus in 2012 as rumors of a Republican revolt against Boehner in the House, played up ominously until the day of the vote when it fizzled like a bottle rocket in a tidal wave from […]
