We try to break down the Trump speech as we groggily convene to discuss the Endless Night that concluded the convention—with side exchanges very much like Trump's on Hulk Hogan, and Israel, and Hamas, and Ukraine, and the Houthis, and the Secret Service, and the Democratic coup against Biden....Give a listen.…

Joe Biden announced that he has Covid. And there's talk he's more receptive to ending his reelection bid. Is this finally happening? Is Kamala Harris his obvious replacement? And who does she pick for VP? Meanwhile, the third day of the RNC featured the powerful appearance of Gold Star families, rousing cheers for Israel, and the unconventional con…

Before delving into events in Milwaukee, we discuss the dismissal of the Donald Trump documents case, Joe Biden's disturbing interview with Lester Holt, and the status of the investigation into Trump's would-be assassin. And then we get into the significance of VP pick J.D. Vance, the Teamsters, and a Republican National Convention like no other. G…

Is what happened to Donald Trump last night in Pennsylvania the beginning of a new period of American instability of the sort that gripped the country and the world in the wake of the JFK assassination—or is it the culmination of two decades of wildly irresponsible rhetoric? Or is it both? Give a listen.…

As Nancy Pelosi hints at the need for Joe Biden to hang it up, the polling and news stories are just all good for Donald Trump, and his relaxed performance at a rally in Florida suggests he is in a different, weirdly positive place as he heads to the Republican convention. Whom will he pick as Veep? Give a listen.…

Arthur Herman joins John and Abe to discuss his article "China and Artificial Intelligence: The Cold War We're Not Fighting," from the July/August issue of COMMENTARY. It's time to stop worrying about the technology itself and start preparing to counter the threat it poses in the hands of our authoritarian adversaries. Give a listen.…

Clear acts of violence were on display in Los Angeles on Sunday and yet we see no action by the city, the state, or the federal government to hold the violent responsible for their actions—and federal law could not be clearer on this matter. What's going on here? And why, on the cusp of his primary battle, did Rep. Jamaal Bowman effectively threate…

A violent confrontation in West L.A. between Jews attempting to attend an event at a synagogue and Hamas supporters seemingly under the protection of the LAPD comes two days after a Jewish family is beset and beat up during a lower-school end-of-year celebration by another family shouting "Free Palestine"—and a day after Rep. Jamaal Bowman screams …

With Senators Cotton and Risch going aggressively at the Biden administration for seeming to slow down the delivery of American weaponry to Israel—all part of the aid package they supported and President Biden signed into law—we try to figure out what the strategy is here on both sides. And we apply the back hand to the "both-sidesism" of investiga…

A new Fox poll and other bits of data may suggest that Joe Biden's strategy of leaning hard on the "Trump is a convicted felon" message is having some effect. No wonder, then, that liberals are so unnerved by the Supreme Court's literal deliberation in deciding whether the case against Trump for January 6 can proceed. And who will win the "worst ce…

People who do not want Donald Trump to win the November election seem convinced he is going to do their work for him and get himself defeated, but that is not what his behavior—not to mention theirs—actually seems to suggest will happen. And what's all this nonsense about "cheapfakes"? Give a listen.…

Danielle Pletka joins us today to discuss her landmark article, "The Anti-Semitism Money and Power Network—and How to Smash It," from the July-August issue of COMMENTARY. But before we do, we discuss the politically confusing decision by Joe Biden to grant amnesty to 1 million illegals a week after he tried to look like Mr. Tough Guy on the border.…

Israelis are getting killed in greater numbers as the Rafah mission continues, while Netanyahu ends the war cabinet and another Biden envoy travels to the region to "do something" about missiles striking Israel from Lebanon. Good luck. Meanwhile, Joe Biden has to be guided off stage by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton pops up at the Tonys to remind…

James B. Meigs joins us to talk about Anthony Fauci's shockingly disingenuous, and possibly perjurious, testimony before the House on the origins of COVID—as we recall and recollect the series of disastrous policies he and others enacted without consequence to themselves. And here today, from New York to D.C. to Los Angeles, it's Charlottesville 20…

The Washington Post's new publisher tells the staff the truth—they stink, the product stinks, it's lost half its audience and $77 million in the past year, and there will be massive change. A watershed moment moment 40 years in the making? Eli Lake joins us to discuss, and we play his weekly AI song to boot. Give a listen.…

The polling is coming in and...sorry, but the Trump verdict isn't changing anything, it appears. Nonetheless, liberal journalists and politicians keep believing their take that "the rule of law is on the ballot" applies to the aftermath of a Trump victory rather than describing what's happening right now in the wake of the New York case. Also: Veep…
  continue reading
 
Today we discuss both the remarkably confusing interview Joe Biden gave to Time and the Wall Street Journal's not-so-deep dive into the state of the president's cognitive abilities. Just how bad is it? And is the administration's disordered policy simply a result of Biden's disordered thinking? Give a listen.…
  continue reading
 
What the heck happened on Friday with Joe Biden's speech apparently saying Israel had agreed to some plan to end the war in Gaza with Hamas still in power—or maybe not still in power—or maybe kind of still in power? What did Israel do to give Biden the opening to move the goalpoasts in this way? And what will the Hunter Biden trial mean for the pre…

Settle in for a rollercoaster ride as the entire COMMENTARY crew considers the legal questions of the Trump verdict, its political implications for 2024, and the question of how America will view this matter in the context of (yes, we mean it) the legitimacy of the United States and its institutions. Plus, an Eli Lake song! Give a listen.…
  continue reading
 
Why on earth would the Biden campaign haul out 80 year-old Robert De Niro to tussle with protesters outside the New York courthouse? Could it be that, for Biden, De Niro is a strapping young fellow with the vim and vigor to speak to today's youth? More seriously, Jonathan Schanzer joins us with some actual good news coming out of the Israeli effort…
  continue reading
 
The House grilled a new round of university presidents who seemed to have benefited from a kind of human machine learning. They avoided some previous mistakes but continued to bring shame on their institutions all the same. And Donald Trump was up to something very interesting in the Bronx. Plus a new AI song from Eli Lake. Give a listen.…
  continue reading
 
Why did American institutions express sorrow at the passing of Iran's monstrous president? Why does anyone pay attention to the International Criminal Court? Why is an awful academic named Dov Waxman running a Jewish studies program at UCLA? Why did Biden say he was vice president during COVID? Why did the judge in the Trump case get all hysterical…
  continue reading
 
Has history been altered by the helicopter crash that has apparently killed the president and foreign minister of Iran? Will Israel be blamed? Did Israel do it? Won't Israel be blamed even if it didn't do it? And what blame attaches to American policy for Israel's increasingly parlous political and military confusion? Give a listen.…
  continue reading
 
Today Eli Lake joins the podcast to discuss Michael Cohen's terrible day in court and the liberal panic over the direction of Donald Trump's criminal trial. And how much power, if any, do school administrators have to meet the demands of pro-Hamas protesters. Plus the debut of a weekly musical feature! Give a listen.…
  continue reading
 
We split on who has the upper hand in the coming debates, but all agree there are risks and rewards and that the race could use a little shaking up. Less shook up, it appears, is American public opinion when it comes to Israel and the Palestinians, which remains firmly in the latter's camp. And the COVID reckoning is speeding up. Give a listen.…

The offer this morning from Joe Biden to debate Donald Trump twice, in June and September, was semi-accepted by Trump a few minutes after it was proposed, so the game might be afoot. Why does Biden want this? What could it mean? And what do the very interesting primary results last night suggest about the state of the Republican party in particular…
  continue reading
 
Is the Trump trial about crimes he supposedly committed or just simply a litany of ways in which the former and maybe future president just seems to be a rotten guy? And what are we to make of the new connections between American wokesters and actual Middle East jihadists who want the mass murder of the Jews? Give a listen.…
  continue reading
 
We begin with a clip of an interview with Joe Biden in 2019 saying the idea of withholding military aid from Israel would be unthinkable to him. And we're off and running with the question of just how damaging and destructive his moves this past week have been. Plus: can you "slut-shame" a porn star? Give a listen.…
  continue reading
 
The news that the Biden administration has deliberately chosen to withhold certain armaments from Israel despite the passage of the aid bill last month is a landmark moment not only in the peculiar behavior of the White House toward the Jewish state since October 7 but also in the annals of American warfare. We don't try to win wars any longer; are…

Today we sort through conflicting accounts of the Hamas ceasefire agreement that wasn't and discuss the leverage that Israel will now gain by going into Rafah. We also reflect on the straightforward anti-American fury of pro-Hamas protests and the Kristi Noem trainwreck. Give a listen.Commentary Magazine által
