We are now living in the post-Kavanaugh confirmation hearing era.  The hard left gallery of rogues – Democrat senators, including “Spartacus” and that Hawaiian man-hater– lost the battle they so desperately and shamelessly waged.  What will be the fall-out?  Hopefully, Republicans will hang onto the House in the midterms, though that still remains a long […]

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America begin by discussing the interesting circumstances surrounding the discovery of Tom Brady’s stolen Superbowl jersey, but then get to the real news.  They are excited to see Neil Gorsuch begin his Supreme Court confirmation hearings.  They also react to the heads of the FBI and NSA say they have no evidence suggesting Pres. Obama ordered surveillance on Trump Tower.  And they shake their heads as only 43 percent of Americans can name one Supreme Court justice.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America cheer President Trump’s nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch for the U.S. Supreme Court.  They also get a kick out of flailing liberals showing up to protest the Supreme Court nomination with fill-in-the-blank signs so they could protest anyone who was chosen.  And they fully support the push from Vox to cancel the Oscars, although their reasons are somewhat different than those offered by Vox.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are very encouraged by the final two names President Trump is reportedly considering for the Supreme Court vacancy.  They also cringe as Trump once again insists he lost the popular vote only through rampant voter fraud by illegal aliens.  And they slam Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel for claiming a lack of federal assistance is to blame for the huge number of murders in his city.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are glad to see Donald Trump’s alleged Supreme Court short list coming down to mostly encouraging names.  They also rip the right for its insane romance with Julian Assange, with Trump suggesting Assange is trustworthy and Sarah Palin even apologizing to Assange for condemning his publishing her own hacked emails years ago.  And they groan as Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer vows to stall at least eight Trump cabinet nominees.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America prepare for Thanksgiving by each listing three things they’re politically thankful for this year.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club podcast for October 18, 2016 it’s the Rigged Podcast edition of the show. We are thrilled to have the chance this week to talk matters philosophical and transcendent (and Supreme Court) during our exclusive interview with Emily Bazelon of the New York Times Magazine and the Slate Political Gabfest who joins us again at HLC.

The Trump Train continues to clatter down the tracks and the days of rigorous speeches and focused message in late August and early September that brought the race to parity seems to be a thing of the past. Trump continues to draw tens of thousands but The Donald’s focus seems to be on polls and process. We discuss this and we also discuss a powerful piece by Hoover Institution historian and overall conservative big cheese Victor Davis Hanson – in The National Review no less – arguing the case for conservatives to vote for Trump. (We thought that was a no-brainer long ago).

Like an unflappable beachcomber scouring the sands with a metal detector and hoping for a big find, the Supreme Court has unearthed a hitherto deeply buried constitutional right to same-sex marriage.  And thus, with the imperious waving of a judicial wand, the debate has been settled.  Same-sex marriage is now the law of the land […]
