National Review is not only the birthplace of the Never Trump movement, but also the “Reagan, Never Again” Reform Conservative movement. National Review without William F. Buckley isn’t National Review. I don’t blame NR for publishing its famous “Against Trump” issue. They thought, with good reason, that Trump would push the Republican Party to further […]

Is any of this real? The things that have happened in the last week, two weeks, two months, the last year, the last four years? Have these things really happened in America? I find myself in a weird hybrid state of bafflement and rage, tiptoeing, shell-shocked, through the moral, political and spiritual wreckage of a […]

Join Jim and Greg as they explore some of the ideas on China that ought to unite conservatives, moderates, and even some Democrats. They also shudder as Bernie Sanders is about to become chairman of the Senate Budget Committee and plans to use the reconciliation process a lot to avoid Senate filibusters. And they unload on Don Lemon for demonizing all Trump voters because some repulsive figures supported him too.

Join Jim and Greg as they discuss what happens next with a deeply fractured Republican Party. They also fume as Capitol Police officials say they never got the FBI warning of violent threats at the Capitol on January 6. And they have some fun with people mistakenly thinking Chuck Norris was part of last week’s demonstrations in Washington.

The Joint Chiefs just issued a statement that Biden will be the next president. Breathtakingly irresponsible. Congress certified the EC vote. The military has zero say. If their intention is to tell Trump he better leave then 1) they are stunningly stupid because there’s not a shred of any indication, except in Leftists’ fantasy land, […]

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the CDC loosening rules on who can get the coronavirus vaccines. They also wade into the big tech crackdown on President Trump, Parler, and others, and discuss what free speech is and is not. And they roll their eyes as the media are now on day three of Kamala Harris being upset with the photo used of her on the cover of Vogue.

Joe Selvaggi talks with Martin Gurri, former CIA analyst and author of Revolt of the Public and the Crisis of Authority in the New Millennium, about the wave of populism sparked by the disruptive force of the internet from Occupy to riots on Capitol Hill. Mr. Gurri shares his views on the connection between massive, broad information consumption and the new view toward elites.

I hope readers will forgive the misleading headline of this post, but I figure Americans need to laugh to keep from crying.

Let’s get to it: the events of last week in Washington DC are seared into our memory. How those knuckleheads made it into the Capitol Building in the first place is beyond me – and yet another reason why we need to vote them all out.

I’m appalled that “Q-Anon shaman” has entered America’s political lexicon. What’s next, “Reverend Al Sharpton?”

We know that President Trump has not been guilty of criminal incitement to violence. We know that because we have transcripts of everything he’s said, and we have clear standards for criminal incitement to violence. He hasn’t met those standards. We know that anyone who says there was no fraud is mistaken. Preview Open

Here’s an article on the CIA spying on Congress and its head, John Brennan, repeatedly lying about it. Nothing was done about it. He was not fired.  This is the story of John Brennan’s CIA spying on Congress and getting away with it. Preview Open

It’s easy to react in the moment, but the Trump Presidency is more than the moment. Now it’s coming to the end, and I want to say a couple of things about it. First, I’d like to thank the President for being a good President for most of his four years in office. Preview Open

Jim and Greg offer their reactions to demonstrators flooding into the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday in protest of the Electoral Vote counting process. They also examine the president’s response and one good thing that happened in the wake of all the chaos.

On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky and Western Correspondent Tristan Justice discuss how the mob that rushed and eventually breached the U.S. Capitol building on Wednesday afternoon will affect the state of our nation moving forward.

Join Jim and Greg to help you through a tough day for conservatives. First, they cringe as it appears Democrats won both Senate races in Georgia because a lot of Republicans didn’t show up. They also discuss how a Chuck Schumer-led Senate means a rough two years are in store for conservatives. And despite a lot of anticipation for dramatic action at today’s Joint Session of Congress on the 2020 Electoral College vote, they explain why there’s not much Vice President Pence or any other Republicans can do to reverse the outcome.

More year-end awards today! Jim and Greg embark on the second half of their six-episode saga known as the 2020 Three Martini Lunch Awards. Today, they offer up their selections for the best political idea, worst political idea, and boldest political tactics for the year.
