It Was a Dark and Stormy...Radio Show

Friends, this week's Newsmaker interview on WLEA 1480 was a doozy.  Among other things, we got into the Michael Cohen-Stormy Daniels-Sean Hannity morass.  We also discussed everyone's favorite budding Bolshevik: David Hogg.  Best of all, we solved our pesky audio problem.  This time I think you'll be able to identify my voice as recognizably human!  Enjoy.


  1. Dr. Waddy: Listened; sound quality was better. Good comment on Daniels'credibility. I made the comment, in reply to one of your earlier posts, "drag a plate of quiche..." to satirize one of Slick Willie's factoti's remark that"you could find a Paula Jones anywhere by dragging a $100 bill through a trailer park". If they believe things like that how can they justify their faith in Stormy Daniels? Paula Jones never had actual sex in front of a camera and cannot be credibly accused of any manner of aberrant behavior. I agree with your caution that Gorsuch's recent vote need not overly concern us. Presently, at the very worst, it might suggest that he is a further right leaning Anthony Kennedy but I don't think it even does that. Hogg's bully pulpit may well be short lived. He has other concerns now, like getting into university, although many of that ilk may offer him all. He can do dirt but I think he's no match for NRA. I think Trump's gutsiness and backbone have generated a more conciliatory attitude both on the part of the Chinese and the North Koreans. I hope the President has successfully delivered the message that if Assad uses chemical weapons he can expect a response over which he has no control. The U.S. military is ever so much more powerful than his and if he persists in this depravity, I hope he can count on unendurable consequences.

  2. Hi Jack. Yes, I think our policy of limited engagement in Syria is probably the only realistic one. In the end, I suspect Assad is going to win this war. C'est la vie.

    I'm not too worried about Gorsuch either. He's been a wonderful addition to the court, by and large. We desperately need the Supreme Court to be active too. The backlog of terrible decisions by lower courts grows every day!

    The North Korea developments are frankly incredible, and surely Trump's toughness is partially responsible. If Obama had achieved the same degree of progress, we'd never hear the end of it...

  3. Dr. Waddy: I expect many of these decisions, including the one announced today blocking the Administration from refusing "Public Safety" grants to sanctuary cities( whose chief concern is safety for MS-13 members, not for the politically incorrect general public)is the fruit of 8 years of Obama appointments. Presumptuous Marxist dissemblers on the bench delight in issuing counterintuitive dictum the better to promote revolutionary conflict. The longer Trump is in there the more relief we will get but its going to take lots of time. Just goes to show; Hillary would have sealed the deal for an essentially radical federal judiciary.

  4. Amen to that, Jack! You're right -- it would take decades to undo all the damage that (Bill) Clinton and Obama inflicted on the federal courts, so we shouldn't expect miracles in the short term. Perhaps denying funding to sanctuary cities was the wrong approach from the beginning, though. As we've discussed, why not prosecute those who violate the law?

  5. Dr. Waddy: You are right. Prosecution is the most direct,objective and just way to combat this presumptuous nonsense. The left has no moral authority to object because it is blithe to practice the politics of prosecution. That would of course not prevent them from howling "oppression" but machts nichts.

  6. Quite right. Justice and common sense never stopped them from howling in the past... My guess is, if the Justice Department tried to prosecute politicians for sheltering illegals, the press would scream bloody murder. How would the American people react? My guess would be in a very divided fashion.
