I listened to the Megyn Kelly podcast with Glenn Loury and Coleman Hughes yesterday. Glenn is fantastic as always: thoughtful, even handed, interested in truth even if it’s uncomfortable. I always thought of Coleman Hughes that way too, until now. His explanation for voting for Biden, his first answer (I assume the most honest one) […]

Ahoy Matey  from the good ship Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast and her able-bodied crew, radio guy Todd Feinburg and AI guy Mike Stopa. This is episode number 198 (God do we feel old!) and we call it the “Anchor Babies Away” edition of the show.

Our topics this week include (in reverse chronological order) the 14th Amendment (or as we cognoscenti call it, the XIV mother) and Trump’s plan to repeal it with the stroke of a pen (and perhaps a phone call). Can he do it? Can we stop the influx of pregnant ladies (do we really have to call the “ladies”) who venture to our land to drop their little miscreants on us? We will discuss.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America welcome the news that another major figure in the Benghazi terrorist attack is now in U.S. custody – only hundreds more to go.  They also shudder as the accusations of  actor Kevin Spacey allegedly preying upon a 14-year-old boy years ago elicits another round of “everybody knew” in Hollywood.  And they discuss the odd transformation of Megyn Kelly, from presidential debate moderator and hard-hitting interviewer to lighthearted morning host discussing Halloween decorations and dance moves.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Rich McFadden of Radio America discuss the legitimacy of Russia’s claims that they killed top ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in late May. They also express frustration over more heated tweets from President Donald Trump today in which he angrily states that he is being investigated for obstruction of justice.  And they have a field day with the news that Alex Jones of Infowars released secret recordings from behind the scenes of his interview with Megyn Kelly, an interview which sparked major controversy and outrage across the nation.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America react to North Korea’s release of an American hostage, express concern over troubling reports of his health condition, and marvel at how former NBA star Dennis Rodman seems to provide intelligence on North Korea that our own spies can’t uncover. They also discuss the rumors NewsMax CEO Chris Ruddy stirred up during a PBS interview about President Trump possibly firing special prosecutor Robert Mueller. And they question Megyn Kelly’s decision to host conspiracy theorist Alex Jones of Infowars on her new Sunday night show on NBC.

Contest! Who Can Guess What Debate Question Nabela Noor Will Ask Republican Candidates?


While the media allows Donald Trump vs. Megyn Kelly to obscure the far more important issues they should be focused on like Cowboys Lives Matter, we have to be careful of them slipping other awful things past us too … Like Nabela Noor.

Fox News and Google, co-parents of Thursday’s unwanted step-child Republican debate, created the following advertisement. Look closely at the end for 3 announced questioners whose claim to fame is that they are “YouTube stars”:

Trump Will “Definitely Not” Participate in Fox News Debate


1439153463_10016521+TV+Kelly+TrumpThe Donald blinks:

Donald Trump will not attend the next Republican debate, the presidential candidate’s campaign manager said just minutes after Trump said he “probably” won’t show up.

“I’m going to be making a decision with Fox, but I probably won’t bother doing the debate,” Trump said at a press conference in Iowa Tuesday night. “I’m going to do something else in Iowa. We’ll have something where we raise money for the veterans and the Wounded Warriors, we’ll do something simultaneously with the debate, but most likely I’m not going to do the debate. I didn’t like the fact that they sent out press releases toying, talking about Putin, and playing games. I don’t know what games Roger Ailes is playing, what’s wrong over there? Something’s wrong.”

“Knowing What We Know Now”


Much is being made of Jeb Bush’s mishearing of Megyn Kelly’s question on Fox News whether “knowing what we know now” would he have invaded Iraq? Brit Hume’s analysis (IMO) is just right: Bush had a particular point he wanted to make about the intelligence failures (and Hillary’s support for the war) and was looking for an opportunity to make it. He just picked the wrong question to use for that point.
