Dying on Islamic Hills Ep. 293

In another blockbuster foreign policy Friday with Jordan Schachtel, we discuss the latest with the Khashoggi saga and juxtapose the media’s disregard of the truth and consequences of their advocacy. Why is the media not concerned about immigration from Saudi Arabia, yet they hate the new Saudi government that is actually fighting terrorists? Just how powerful is the MB influence in America? It would shock you. We move on to Afghanistan, where the top U.S. commander was almost killed in an...


Let’s Say the GOP Keeps the House. Then What? Ep. 292

Republicans, even all the liberal ones running on liberal policies, must defeat the Democrats. Fine, I get it. But what is our plan to stop the betrayal of Republicans in Congress the day after and actually focus on cleaning our own house for once? What’s next? When will we actually hold Republicans accountable for betraying us on every issue? When will we actually fight on the budget, the border, and health care? I delve into the severity of the health care betrayal and how Republicans...


Politicians Should Look in the Mirror to Discover Who Caused the Pre-Existing Condition Problem Ep. 291

Are you sick of Republicans and the conservative media focusing on these quasi-cultural flash points but then agreeing with Democrats on all the policy outcomes? Be sure to tune in today. In this blockbuster episode, I cram as much health care policy into one show as I possibly can. I discuss how Republicans have essentially agreed to Obamacare and socialized medicine even as they claim to fight it. Why are health care and medical insurance so messed up? Who caused the pre-existing...


Virtue-Signaling Should Not Replace Facts and Policy in the Middle East Ep. 290

In this episode of “Foreign Policy Friday” with CRTV’s national security correspondent, Jordan Schachtel, we lay out the bare truth of the saga with Saudi Arabia and the disappearance of Jamal Kashaggi. Jordan demonstrates that this guy was no journalist; he was a pro-al Qaeda activist with the Muslim Brotherhood. This is not our hill to die on. While we don’t like all the behavior of Saudi Arabia, the reality is that the nation is more of a help then a harm in this day and age when the...


The Fine Print Is All That Matters in Politics Ep. 289

Those who work in politics full-time and claim to be conservative need to read the fine print on the policies, strategies, and personnel upon which they opine. The fine print is all that matters, and understanding it will void out the message they are getting from the bold print. In this episode, I discuss all the ways the GOP is screwing us on policy and personnel, from crime and immigration to economics, and health care. Yet the brainless “conservative” media is so distracted and...


The UN, Immigration, Courts, Sanctuaries, and Stolen Sovereignty Ep. 288

Everyone is abuzz with rumors about the next U.N. ambassador. I offer some ideas for who should be the conservative pick and what is important about this position. I also note how conservatives are not in a good position to block some of the bad names being mentioned. Next, I show how there is a torrent of court cases that will hurt us on sovereignty and immigraition. Courts just ruled sanctuary cities are entitled to federal funding. And no, a more conservative Supreme Court will not fully...


Imagine if Republicans Pulled a Kavanaugh on Other Issues Ep. 287

What do you do when you are losing a war and have a weak army, but then get a miraculous break and win one defensive skirmish? Do you get drunk and celebrate as if your troubles are over, or do you double down and go on offense while working to finally make competent fighting men out of your forces? This is the analogy that should guide conservatives in dealing with Republicans after the Kavanaugh victory. We need to double down on the fight and get better Republicans, not just any...


What Happens After Kavanaugh Is Confirmed? Ep.286

Let’s not remain happy with just one victory; let’s follow up on the Kavanaugh victory with a more robust agenda. In this episode, I go through the lessons of the Kavanaugh victory and what conservatives can do to influence the outcome of this election, nominate better Republicans in the future, and replicate this unity in other issues. The GOP could turn the tide in October, if they only cared. Meanwhile, we must remember that we are not winning back the courts by simply appointing better...


GOP Policy Betrayals So Unbelievable That Base Voters Truly Don’t Believe It Ep. 285

If the Left is militarized beyond repair, why not just go all out? Why are congressional Republicans still capitulating on every other issue aside from the Supreme Court? Today I'm joined by our congressional correspondent, Nate Madden, to discuss the latest happenings in Congress and the latest prognoses on the Kavanaugh vote. We try to discern why our base is so numb to all the policy betrayals and why it’s so much harder to galvanize the Right in American than the Left. Nate believes the...


The GOP's Culture of Capitulation Comes Home to Roost Ep. 284

Just when we thought Republicans would finally unite behind one issue, namely a Supreme Court nominee, the RINOs come out to sandbag us. In this episode, I analyze why McConnell and Co. deserve the blame for having these RINOs in the Senate in the first place. We tried to warn them about people like Murkowski, but they fought tooth and nail for her. Now they must reap what they sowed. Moreover, they foster a culture of capitulation on 90 percent of the other issues so that even when they...


The Kavanaugh Saga and the Perfectly Corrupted View of Criminal Justice Ep. 283

In this episode, I analyze the Kavanaugh tragedy – and yes, it is a tragedy – from a unique angle. Democrats on the Judiciary Committee have been the leaders in weak-on-crime laws for juvenile crimes and want to let convicted felons out of jail. They don’t give a darn about victims. Yet when it comes to political outcomes, they are willing to hang a guy with no evidence and violate every norm of due process under the guise of protecting victims. I explore multiple factors, political...


Trump’s Terrific UN Speech on Sovereignty and Patriotism Ep.282

Unfortunately, this will be lost in the fight to the death over Kavanaugh, but Trump just delivered one of his best speeches. Today, I am joined by CR’s national security correspondent, Jordan Schachtel, to dissect the important elements of Trump’s speech before the U.N. General Assembly. Jordan shows how Trump is taking a new, much-needed stance on international relations, breaking through the false choices of isolationism and globalism. We also go through our typical “foreign policy...


Why “Conservatives” Have Become the Cleveland Browns Ep. 281

In this episode, I dissect how phony conservatives have supported a phony Republican Party that never accomplishes anything and always moves the ball forward for the Left. I explain how they continue to get away with the biggest political fraud of all time by promoting the same arguments for voting GOP. You are as likely to succeed in promoting conservatism with this political party as the Cleveland Browns are likely to win the Super Bowl. I tie together the latest on the Kavanaugh case,...


Forget the SCOTUS Fight; the GOP Has Already Surrendered Congress Ep. 280

Today I'm joined by Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, to discuss the failures of House leadership and how they are betraying their promises on the budget. Jordan tells us that House leaders are like a wrestler who forfeits the match the minute the whistle is blown without having a fight. The congressman gives a vision for what he plans to do in the House if he wins the election for speaker. He plans to make the House at least an equal partner with the Senate, if not the stronger body. We also...


What Would the Founders Think of Today’s America on Constitution Day? Ep. 279

Today is the anniversary of the signing of the Constitution, but nobody cares. I relate the final hours of the convention and discuss the lessons we can learn from Benjamin Franklin’s closing speech and what we need in our era. Then I move on to the Kavanaugh accusations. Rather than focus on details that we frankly don’t know, I draw two important lessons from this. One, Republicans always nominate milquetoast people thinking they can placate the Left, but then get burned by the worst...


Getting Crushed in an Election for the Other Side’s Beliefs! Ep. 278

“Republicans have always had a rare gift for paying the political price associated with revolutionary change without actually accomplishing anything revolutionary. They're savaged for actions they were intimidated out of taking.” ~John Hayward. In this episode, I explain how we are getting sold out on every issue in the budget battle and we are also facing a catastrophic loss at the ballot box. The two issues are quite intertwined, and I describe how Republicans managed to pull off the...


No Lessons Learned 17 Years After 9/11 Ep. 277

Not only have we failed to learn the lessons of 9/11, we have done the exact opposite of what prudence should have dictated regarding immigration and border policy. Today I am joined by Todd Bensman (@BensmanTodd), senior national security fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies. Bensman draws upon his experience in intelligence for the Texas Department of Public Safety to discuss the threat of Middle Easterners at our southern border. Bensman believes the threat of granting asylum to...


How Can Our Political Class Be So Wrong on So Many Issues? Ep. 276

When it comes to the most important issues of our time, the political elites are not just missing their shots, they are tossing one airball after another. The entire premise that many policies and political fights are built upon is absolutely erroneous. I begin the show continuing our ongoing discussion about the true origins of judicial supremacy and how it is a political fiction that was completely rejected by our Founders. I shed new insight on how Madison and others were certain that...


The Judicial Supremacists are Disciples of Dred Scott, not Abraham Lincoln Ep. 275

In this episode, I continue the long-running discussion on the true role of the judiciary and who has the final say in constitutional interpretation. I demonstrate the absurdity of how everyone on both sides seems to think the courts are king. It creates a self-fulfilling political crisis with each judicial nomination. I show how this is not the way our Founders created the system, nor does it have to continue being this way. My solution is to return jurisdiction over the most partisan...


We’re All Missing the 800-Pound Gorilla in the SCOTUS Confirmation Fight Ep. 274

What is the point of a Supreme Court confirmation hearing if we never learn anything about his constitutional thoughts but at the same time view the courts as the final say on the Constitution? In this episode, I discuss why the hearings are a shame, why we have no guarantees Kavanaugh will be a Clarence Thomas, and why we are all missing the point about the role of the courts. I lay out in our history lesson why there is no way our Founders intended to make the courts the final say on the...
