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 […]

In a recent video from JK Studios (from the former Studio C crew) a certain book written by Ricochet founder Peter Robinson makes a cameo appearance. Not sure I get the reference given the lifestyle and characters depicted. I think a book about Beto O’Rourke would have been funnier and more timely. Ah, well. Enjoy. […]

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 […]

All, I hope everyone enjoyed the meetup last night. Here are some photographs from the meeting. The lighting was a challenge, but I think the spirit of the evening was captured. I can send along the full resolution images to anyone who wants them. More

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.

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.

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.

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. 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.

Peter Robinson graduated summa cum laude from Dartmouth College and went on to study politics, philosophy, and economics at Oxford University, graduating in 1982. Peter then spent his next six years in the Reagan White House, first for a year as chief speechwriter to Vice President George Bush and then special assistant and speechwriter to President Ronald Reagan. Now, Peter Robinson, who co-founded Ricochet.com, is a research fellow at the Hoover Institution, where he writes about business and politics and hosts Hoover’s video series program, Uncommon Knowledge.

I was attending a meeting in downtown D.C. today (at this lovely and historic hotel, if you’re curious). It had been a rainy, cool morning, traffic was wretched trying to get to the airport to pick up a colleague and then messy trying to get to the hotel for the meeting. However, the day began […]

Because I was in the right place at the right time a few weeks ago, I got to attend a taping of the “Uncommon Knowledge” Podcast Monday night. The invitation didn’t specify a dress code, but I asked ahead and found out a suit and tie was expected, which meant my normal evening attire wouldn’t cut it. After work […]

NO SPOILERS I was walking my dog earlier today and listening to “The Ricochet Podcast, Ep. 286: No Spoilers.” When my nine year old son went with friends from school to see the latest Star Wars two days before my wife and I were able to, we were properly armed against any accidental plot point […]

For the second week in a row, I’m running late with my college football post. Anyway, here are a few games of interest this weekend. In the Big Ten, the No. 12 Michigan Wolverines are leading the Penn State Nittany Lions 21-16 midway through the fourth quarter. Later today, the No. 3 Ohio State Buckeyes […]

A hat tip to Peter Robinson for the insight, but here’s some anecdotal confirmation from The Conservative Tribune: During a two-and-a-half hour meeting with 40 pastors in the Trump Tower on Monday, 2016 GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump managed to make some headway with a subset of the black community.
