A Broadcast That Will Live in Infamy


Friends, today's Newsmaker Show is at least 12% more ambrosial than normal, thanks to elevated levels of intellectual brilliance and verbal artistry on my part.  You're welcome!

This week, Brian and I tackle the (expected) political demise of Hershel Walker, the need for the U.S. to end its reliance on Chicom computer technology, the shocking reversal of the PRC's "zero COVID" policies, the future of communism in China, DJT's suggestion that reelecting him is potentially more important than fidelity to the U.S. Constitution, the significance of the new presidential primary calendar on the Democratic side in 2024, and how the "Twitter Papers" will and won't impact American politics.  Whew!

Finally, when we hash over "This Day in History", we address the U.S. declaration of war against Japan on December 8th, 1941, and the lone Congresswoman who voted no, as well as President Nixon's policy of "Vietnamization" and its prospects for ending the Vietnam War in our favor.

Would it be a productive use of 24 minutes and 3 seconds of your time to listen in?  Well...  If it was 24 minutes and 4 seconds, I might give you a pass, but come on!  Do it for America!




In other news, Western Civilization may be collapsing in a heap, but the machinery of the state grinds on, and history continues to unfold.  A case in point: the British are slowly making the transition from featuring the Queen's visage on their coins, stamps, and what not to featuring "King Charles III" instead.  The graven image of Charles that they've chosen is a bit unflattering, I feel, but there's no escaping the fact that he's old, so we might as well learn to accept it, no? 


Here's a fascinating new poll indicating GOP voters shifting support to Ron DeSantis over Donald Trump.  Keep in mind that different polls are getting sometimes wildly different results. 

Finally, those greenies are at it again!  This time they're gluing themselves to one of the runways at Munich's airport.  I wonder what would have happened if these activists had tried a stunt like that in Hitler's day?  My guess is there would have been a lot of jet engines clogged with hippie bits...  I'm just thinking out loud, of course.  I would never recommend any course of action that would damage a valuable jet engine.


  1. Dr.Waddy from Jack: Those Brits! I love 'em but they do have some perhaps curious ways of naming or enhancing publicly owned objects. Is it only the monarch who is pictured on their currency? Does money picturing a past monarch become unusable eventually? Gads, I wonder if currency with Edward VIII's likeness was produced and is rare now.Why the British have, as far as I know, not named say, a great peak or a cherished structure after Churchill I dinna ken. They did name a tank after him and that is appropriate since he championed the new fangled thing in WWI but then they named their new super carrier Prince of Wales; the WWII bat tleship of that name was a very hardluck ship. They have gracefully named many ships after Greek deities but you can't beat the Italians, who named battleships after Dante and DaVinci!

  2. Dr.Waddy from Jack: These modern Luddites;they have one advantage over the originals: modern communication and organizational skills. Hu man regression has ocurred: eg.the Dark Ages in Europe.

  3. Jack, those are great questions. Based on my (very slight) research, Edward VIII coins never made it to the public in the U.K., but stamps did:

    Are British monarchs always on British stamps? It appears so, but sometimes just in minature:
