After a brief, but unavoidable, hiatus in which is computer expired, Dave is back with new gear, and even new software that allows him to video his podcasts, in addition to hosting live stream events.

In this episode, Ricochet Co-Founder and “Cheers” Executive Producer, Rob Long joins Dave for a post mortem on Election 2020 and an assessment on where we go from here. Rob does a respectable job of trying to talk Dave off the political edge before Ricochet member and writer at The Federalist, Jenna Stocker helps to spotlight the possibility and strength of faith, family and hope. This is no small task for Jenna, who lives in Minneapolis, a place Dave described as “Mad Max territory,” after months of riots, arson, a spike in violent crime even as the city works to defund the police.

“What % do you think of the Georgia electorate or maybe the American electorate is delusionally clinging to this set of even more ludicrous and outlandish conspiracy theories to protect their very fragile snowflake-like affection for a president who lost a fair election?”–Ricochet co-founder, Rob Long, Ricochet podcast, Episode 523 (~20-minute mark). Thanks, neighbor.  NY […]

Former Reagan Speechwriter, and Ricochet Co-Founder, Peter Robinson sits down with Dave Carter to discuss everything related to the 2020 Presidential Election. From the state of the voting public to journalistic subterfuge, from the strengths and weakness of both candidates to the reliability of various polls and polling methods, Peter and Dave take on practically every aspect of Campaign 2020. The dynamics of this engaging and enjoyable conversation travel from serious political analysis, to two guys sitting on the front porch, wondering why more people don’t understand history, and beseeching the kids to get off the lawn. Along the way, Peter offers a compelling list of what could happen in the event of a Biden victory (it’s safe to say that you need to hear this).

Then Dave welcomes Ricochet Member Brady Kiel (Herrforce1) to the program.  Brady, an Air Force Reservist, spent some time in Dave’s old line of work as an active duty military historian.  As you might imagine, the guys have a great time comparing notes and trading stories, experiences and reflecting on their military service.  From start to finish, this episode is loaded with compelling conversation and even a few laughs.  We’re sure you’ll enjoy your time with Dave and his guests.

Okay, so I had an idea.  It doesn’t seem like the Long Poll questions are blowing anybody away. I’ve seen a lot of comments suggesting what the question should’ve been or why the available answers are poor, etc. And as it happens, to the right of Long is Peter Robinson. I know Peter’s questions are […]

I nearly spilled my coffee on the rug while watching the Stanley Cup Final last night.  Ricochet’s own Pat Sajak was wearing a Washington Capitals polo and announcing the starting lineups. So sad.   Imagine if you were watching Seinfeld on TV and you see Rob Long in the credits as a show-runner?  Or perhaps listening […]

Questions for Mad Dog

 

I am looking forward to Peter Robinson’s interview of the Secretary of Defense. Peter’s a skilled interviewer, but I have suggested questions about social engineering and wonder what issues other Ricochetti would like raised. Here are my questions:

Some Obama social engineering initiatives have not been reversed under Sec. Mattis. Does he plan to take action on these issues which affect military preparedness? For example, transgender surgery is extremely expensive, makes a person unable to serve for a long time, and has severe negative long-term consequences.

Ricochetti Adventures in Vegas and LA

 

I previously posted about our hot weekend (113°F) in Vegas at FreedomFest 2017 whilst interviewing a treasure trove of luminaries, but I left off details and photos of our two meet ups from the weekend. The first, on Friday night was hosted by @addictionisachoice:

@cowgirl and Addiction Is a Choice are in the rear of the photo, with virtuoso pianist Hyperion Knight to the right of him, then me, @nicegrizzly, and @Whiskeypolitics Dave. On the other side of the table, @docjay is seated next to Cowgirl, and next to him we have three guests who will be joining Ricochet soon: Garin Bader, fantastic magician and pianist who performs regularly and is a friend of Hyperion’s, and Nancy and her daughter, Sarah.

Uncommon Knowledge at the Reagan Library

 

Sunday afternoon 500-600 people gathered at the Ronald Reagan Library for a live edition of Uncommon Knowledge. A large contingent of Ricoteers was in the audience, and if you didn’t make it, we missed you! Our beloved Peter Robinson was interviewed by Ricochet contributor and all-around lovely guy, Pat Sajak, who is also known for playing hangman on TV.

The Uncommon Knowledge episode was wonderful! Peter told us quite a few anecdotes about the evolution of the “Tear Down This Wall” speech, a few of which made me tear up. I know some of you watched it via livestream, and the Blue Yeti promises to have it properly posted soon. Patience, please, as he is a VERY busy Yeti for the next few weeks.

Peter Robinson 30 Years After “Mr. Gorbachev, Tear Down This Wall”

 

On this special 50th episode of Whiskey Politics, we are honored to welcome Peter Robinson, Speechwriter to President Ronald Reagan. Among hundreds of other speeches, Peter is now celebrating the 30th anniversary of the history-making Brandenburg Gate speech where against advice from the White House, State Department, and Germans, President Reagan called on General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev to “tear down this wall!” We discuss this pivotal moment in history, the relationships with Margaret Thatcher and Milton Friedman and his upcoming Ricochet and Uncommon Knowledge interview with Pat Sajak at the Reagan Library.
