Episode Date
Episode 9: Godot Doomsdaying in the Golden State
March is out like a lion, and on today’s episode discusses the coronoavirus anomaly/mystery of California, how Donald Trump’s reelection hinges on the strategic foresight he will bring to bear in battling the pathogen, Red China’s hegemony plans through its global logistics and infrastructure investments, liberal Rhode Island’s realization that borders do exist (and hoping that virus-fleeing New Yorkers won’t cross them), and the upper hand held by virtue-panic mongers.

Episode 8: Crisis Waste Not, Want Not: Clyburn, Pelosi, Schumer, and Viral Politics
Midway through America’s effort at social distancing, Victor discusses his first-hand experience with the economics of panics, about Capitol Hill Democrats loading up coronavirus relief legislation with an ideological wish list, and the geographically, socially, and ideologically driven coverage of the Wuhan virus.

Episode 7: The Case for Trump Is Out. Meanwhile, the Boomerang.
On the Saint Patrick’s Day episode, Victor predicts that China’s Communists rue what they begat, talks about the new (paperback) updated and expanded edition of The Case for Trump, scopes out the reelection chances of POTUS, and heralds the American men and women who sweat, strain, and keep us alive.

Episode 6: Going Viral: The Updated Case for Trump, Wuhan Virus Overreaction, Joe Biden Altercations
On this week’s episode, Victor and Jack discuss the forthcoming updated edition of The Case for Trump, Joe Biden’s potty-mouth voter-threatening march to the nomination, the fear behind Coronavirus reactions, Iran’s descent in pariah state status courtesy of the administration’s “maximum pressure,” Elizabeth Warren’s descent into victim-mongering ex-candidacy, and papal kow-towing to Chinese Communists.

Episode 5: Plaguing Issues
On this week’s episode, Victor and Jack spend the morning of Super Tuesday discussing the history of plagues and their non-biological consequences, the cost of globalization, the state of Trump’s reelection chances after a wild week, and whether Joe Biden will pass Bernie Sanders on the road to Milwaukee. Oh yeah, and there’s a requiem for a leg-thrilled journalist, and another saint history lesson.

Episode 4: Gray Matter Anatomy
On this week’s episode, Victor and Jack again discuss the insecurity that underlies farming instructor Mike Bloomberg’s “gray matter” theology, the Orwellian practices of Red China’s regime (and the question of the regime’s durability in the face of the ongoing coronavirus crisis), the political durability of attacks on Bernie Sanders’ decades-long love for Commie henchmen, European anti-Semitic-themed fun and frolic, and a lesson on a patron saint.

Episode 3: Old Mike Bloomberg Had a Farm . . .
On this week’s episode, Victor and Jack discuss city boy Mike Bloomberg’s farming knowledge and what that says about his views of the yokels; the rip-roaring Democrat debate in Nevada, where the billionaire took his lumps, and then some more; and VDH’s proposal to save higher education by putting colleges and universities on the hook for what they’re charging, and the product they’re delivering.

Episode 2: Rush: The Genius of, the Era of
In this episode, taped the morning of the New Hampshire Democratic primary, VDH and Jack discuss the rise of Pete Buttigieg, the successful unorthodoxy of Donald Trump, California’s embrace of corporate socialism, and the consequence of Rush Limbaugh.
