Remember that delightful young lady who earned worldwide fame impersonating Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?  Young Ava Martinez has been put out of business by “death threats and harassment” from the liberal hate-mongers of the internet.  How much more difficult it will be for her parents to teach her about the kindness of strangers. Remember Peter, […]

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for March 28, 2017, it’s the Former President Trump edition of the show. Brought to you this week by Casper Mattresses.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are pleased to see conservative priorities in Pres. Trump’s budget, even though they concede the final appropriations will look nothing like this.  They also shake their heads as John McCain accuses anyone opposing NATO membership for Montenegro of doing Vladimir Putin’s bidding.  And they react to a tweet from the McDonald’s account that slams Pres. Trump.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for January 10, 2017, it’s the Hollywood Hell edition of the podcast – number 101 – brought to you by ZipRecruiter and Simplisafe.

It’s hard to get past Meryl Streep’s Golden Globe slam of Donald Trump. That is one hurtin’ woman. Put Hollywood together with academia, Wall Street and Silicon Valley (just check this out!), shake, and try to strain out a single Trump supporter. Good luck!  Mike posits that Hollywood celebrities and university physicists have some salient points in common.

In the debate on Tuesday I couldn’t square how Ted Cruz could state that his 10% flat income tax plan (that also eliminates payroll taxes) was revenue neutral when scored dynamically. Well two articles by Steven Moore and  Ramesh Ponnuru on NRO really helps explain what is going on. Basically both Ted Cruz and Rand […]

Walker got a rather large helping of both the first and second choices in Ricochet’s recent 2016 presidential poll.  Carly Fiorina snagged a surprising second place. She is followed by Cruz, then Perry, then Rubio, then Jindal (if one counts second-choice points) and then Trump (followed very closely by Paul). Yet, Mr. Trump seems to […]

The Race for Second?

 

Paul pauses during a network news interview on Capitol Hill in WashingtonThere is no next-in-line for the GOP nomination this cycle. We had one of the least-inspiring candidates the last time around — last two times? — while the other candidates all sputtered and fell.

This means the race is wide open, and we’ve already had much better talent announced already than we’ve had in the recent past (admittedly, not the highest bar to clear). But I think the vast majority of people, whether or not Scott Walker is exactly their man, don’t see any of the senators pictured here as having what it takes to make it.

This leads to speculation of what exactly Cruz, Rubio, and Paul are trying to accomplish by running. Sure, it will expand their national profile, and that’s usually a good thing for the narcissists who think they can and should rule others. Maybe they are trying to influence debate and nudge the platform and eventual nominee in their preferred direction.

President Reagan had a strong vision of what he wanted America to be and he had the political smarts to know how to make that vision a reality.  People like Bob Dole and George H. W. Bush had the political smarts but not the vision.  Ted Cruz and Rand Paul are strong on vision but haven’t been around […]
