  • mantikor: H1: 05/25/15 Semper Fi Fund, Pt. 1

    Semper Fi Fund is a great charity but it's boring radio. Many will fault me for saying so but it is true in my opinion and until the libs take over I am free to have my own opinion. Feel free to disagree but it is not worth the bandwidth to download the podcast AGAIN this year....

    So it was bad enough that an career intelligence professional would incorporate a trendy verbal tick into his speech by beginning all his answers with "so". So annoying. So now David M. Drucker had started doing it, too. So disappointing....

    I don't believe the media will even gnash teeth before going along with Hillary. They'll say/print things like, "Well, she's been in the public light for over 30 years, we already know all we need to know, and she's too busy to sit down and answer questions from peons like us." Nor will lefty voters at large, care about any of that. Even if Hillary were "grilled" and "asked the hard questions" etc, they wouldn't be watching, nor would they understand even if they did watch. They vote Democrat no matter what, especially 90%+ among blacks....

  • not_hugh001: H1: 05/14/15: Mark Steyn, Rep. Rob Bishop, Obama Audio, Calls

    Hugh acknowledges that Stephanopoulos "dropped that bomb" on the 2012 Republican presidential candidates in New Hamphsire but wants the 2016 crew to go do interviews with him? Would Hugh suggest that the Republicans sit down for network interviews by Hillary's campaign manager, too?...

  • kerryedavis: H2: 05/14/15: Kirsten Powers, Calls

    I'm curious, in particular, did she mention one particular comment about Sarah Palin that was made by Sandra Bernhardt? It sounds like a great book overall, but it's hard to understand how Kirsten Powers was able to write it, considering her other statements during this interview. And she seems pre-programmed to always vote for the people who she says are causing the problems. That's just bizarre. And it casts more doubt on her discernment abilities that she claims the Clinton Foundation is non-political. Even putting aside any issues of real corruption and influence-peddling, the clear purpose of the Clinton Foundation is to benefit the Clintons, in terms of money, power, and influence. How is that not political? Especially considering the known political agendas of the Clintons. She says that she's never voted for a Republican. That would seem to mean that she voted for Obama both times. Anyone who was paying attention, not even counting before the '08 election, could see what Obama and the people around him were like, during the first term. So, did she vote for him again in '12 in order to produce more material for her book? Or is she just... stupid, in that way? And I don't know if there's any reason or evidence to believe that Hillary would be an improvement in the areas Powers claims to hate, but she'll vote for her anyway? Wow. I guess that means she IS wanting some new material for The Silencing, Volume 2....

    Oh good, it's now possible to post comments again. duane: isn't "judicial review" something that was itself invented, not specified in the constitution? so an extra-strong 'originalist' position could be what dr carson is advocating. and doesn't congress have the power to remove anything it wants to, from the supreme court's purview? One of these days, I'd like to see Congress do like I thought they did with some immigration thing recently, and vote to remove something from the court's purview. And then if the court still issues some decision anyway, find them in contempt of congress, and perp walk them to the nearest hoosegow until they straighten up and FOLLOW THE LAW. and finally, how many divisions (of soldiers) does the supreme court have to enforce its decisions? they might have lifetime tenure 'in good behavior' or however that works, but maybe it's time to impeach a few supremes for bad behavior if they persist in acting like... well, like ruth bader ginsburg, for example....

  • vastwritewing: H2: 05/11/15: John Harwood, Eliana Johnson, Andrew Kirell, Phil Anschutz

    Dr. Carson is wrong. I heard Hugh's interview with him. 1) When Hugh asked him about how America should respond to the Russian threat in the Baltic States, it was the same question he asked every other potential candidate who has been on the who in the past 2 months. 2) Dr. Carson's "answer" to the question was so vague, wandering, baffled and uninformed, it was darn near disqualifying. I can see why Dr. Carson would be embarrassed about the moment, but there was nothing "gotcha" about the question. and Hugh was anything BUT gleeful. Dr. Carson appears to be a fine man, but not a very good potential candidate....

    Bill Nye is even more dishonest than you said. He chops off the first clause of a sentence to make his point, but the whole sentence puts things in a different light. Article 1, section 8, paragraph 8: "To promote the progress of science and useful arts, by securing for limited times to authors and inventors the exclusive right to their respective writings and discoveries;" In other words, copyright and patent law. It doesn't mean Congress should give them money, it means Congress should write laws allowing creative persons the chance to profit from their creations....

    Actually, I was expecting Mr Roboto. But I also preferred Liz Phair's version of "Turning Japanese," maybe in part because I actually heard it first. I sure enjoyed seeing that video on the news tonight, the mother telling her 16-year-old son he ain't gonna be no "protestor," and in no uncertain terms. It's a shame there weren't more mothers - or better yet, fathers - out there doing the same thing....

  • kerryedavis: H1: 04/28/15: Del Wilbur, Michael Shear, Jim Talent, David Drucker

    re Michael Shear: it should also be considered that lots of people, esp young black people it seems, might be seeing that a (half-)black president can be such a FAILURE, and still be idolized and somehow (at least according to them and the lefty media) immune from criticism. That doesn't bode well for the future either, not for them and not for the country....

    Unfortunately, When the president says "I directed that ..." I do not believe him. I disbelieve him not only because of his past history of lying [LyinKing] but because he never directs anyone.

  • sdersch: H3: 04/16/15: Mark Steyn, Sen. Ben Sasse, Shane Goldmacher, Tevy Troy

    In regard to Christie's Social Security Insurance (SSI) reform plan (propositions, in order of certainty): 1) SSI is clearly insolvent; therefore something must be done 2) In *any* SSI reform, some group (or all groups) will have to bear the burden of reform, either in terms of higher taxes or lower benefits (which may take the form of either delayed or decreased benefits). 2) The most *just* way to reform SSI is to place the burden predominantly on the generations responsible for allowing it to become insolvent. That would be the current and upcoming generation of retirees. 3) Decreasing current benefits(which are adequate, but only barely so--as it ought to be)for current retirees who already have little or no other retirement income is politically impossible and ethically questionable (at best). 4) Therefore, any feasible, just plan to reform SSI is going to look something like Christie's. As much as I am disinclined to support him for many other reasons, I think his plan is better than any other I've heard so far. Kudos to him for throwing himself on the "3rd rail". May his tribe increase....

    Thank you, John Eastman. And nice to not have Erwin along to muddy things up. When I was in High School, some of the most annoying students, who took early Calculus, were fond of something I called "arm-waving proofs." One of them might go like this: Six is an even number. But six is an odd number of legs for a horse. Therefore even numbers are odd. And by reciprocity, odd numbers are even. (waving arms) "BUT DON'T YOU SEEEE?" (how clever I am?) The argument that Dean Eastman disposed of very nicely, sounded something like that....
