Contributor Post Created with Sketch. John Fund on Election Integrity and Voter Fraud

 

John FundJohn Fund (National Review and Fox News) returns to Whiskey Politics to update us on the issues discussed during our last podcast visit regarding the bipartisan Election Integrity Commission and how some 2.8 million people are registered in two or more states, and 1.8 million registered voters are dead.

John refers to “political stunts” in which state workers have declared they will deny providing data to the commission, and how powerful Democratic strongholds like Chicago and Detroit use voter fraud to elect corrupt office holders which hurt the Democratic voters who need change. We also discuss why Democrats have so often opposed efforts to crack down on voter fraud at the state level and why the Obama administration for eight years never cracked down on potential ineligible voters.

Punditry is neither new nor is the star-power of those whose profession it is to tell you what to think. Many readers of this post remember William F. Buckley’s superb Firing Line, CNN’s middling Crossfire and McLaughlin’s curmudgeonly growls. But whereas these vanguards of the medium were relegated to bargain basement time slots, today’s pundit […]

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Dinesh D’Souza – If This Is True, Everything I Learned Is Wrong

 
Dinesh, Dave, and Whiskey Politics Producer extraordinaire Melissa Praemonitus

Filmmaker and author Dinesh D’Souza sits down for two interviews with Dave Sussman at the Whiskey Politics/Ricochet Media Booth at Freedom Fest in Las Vegas. Dinesh discusses how while the Left thinks of itself as the ‘party of diversity’ it is quite the opposite, even fascist. He argues that the Left wishes to keep voters in abject poverty to ensure they maintain their voting blocks. Born in India, D’Souza came to the U.S. as an exchange student at the age of 18 and graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Dartmouth College. Called one of the “top young public-policy makers in the country,” following graduation from Dartmouth University, he went on to work in the Reagan White House as a policy analyst. D’Souza quickly became known as a major force in public policy through his books, speeches, and films. Pre-Order the sure to be best-selling THE BIG LIE now and get a signed copy at Dinesh D’Souza.com. Book interview coming soon.

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Hyperion Knight: Are Free Markets Good for the Arts?

 

Freedom Fest Panelist Hyperion Knight joins us at Whiskey Politics to discuss leftism in music and entertainment. Hyperion is a virtuoso pianist with a romantic touch whose recordings range from Beethoven and Chopin to Ragtime and Queen. In addition to regular appearances with orchestras across the United States, he has been a headline performer at Manhattan’s Rainbow Room and Entertainer of the Year for Silversea Cruises.

He is a Gershwin enthusiast, whose performance of “Rhapsody In Blue,” along with works by Cole Porter and Andrew Lloyd Webber, was recently featured in the Public Television special Hyperion Plays Piano. Hyperion was born in Berkeley, California, graduated from the San Francisco Conservatory at age 19, and by the age of 22 had received both a Master’s degree and a Doctoral degree from the Cleveland Institute of Music. He then studied at the Juilliard School in New York, where he now resides. The American Record Guide said of his performance, “Not since Heifetz has anyone played Gershwin solos with this much panache…the songs glitter like jewels against black satin.” In this episode of Whiskey Politics, Hyperion discusses his upcoming speaking engagement subject at Freedom Fest 2017 on Free Markets and the Arts.
