Origin, history and development of conservatism in the United States
This is a free preview of a paid episode. To hear more, visit andrewsullivan.substack.comRod is an old-school blogger and author living in Budapest. He's a senior editor at The American Conservative and has written several bestsellers, including The Benedict Option and Live Not by Lies. He's currently writing a book about bringing the enchantment back to Christianity in a time of growing secularism. He was enchanted himself after taking LSD in college, putting him on the path to Christianity — something he hasn't talked about in public until now. We've been sparring online for a couple of decades, while remaining friends. For two clips of our convo — Rod coming to terms with his father being in the KKK, and breaking from the Catholic Church after learning of suicides by sex-abuse victims — pop over to our YouTube page. Other topics: television as a way for Rod to escape the racism of the rural South, his struggle for his father's acceptance, meeting gay kids for the first time in boarding school, his youthful indiscretions of drinking and casual sex, his family rejecting him after moving home for his dying sister, reconciling with his dad, his friendly correspondence with a gay meth addict, his current divorce and moving to Budapest, and Rod believing that homosexuality and transness are “disordered” — and my profound disagreement with him on both counts. It's one of the most revealing episodes we've had yet.Peruse the Dishcast archives for another episode you might enjoy — more than one hundred at this point.

Russell Kirk has long been known as perhaps the most important founding father of the American Conservative movement in the second half of the 20th century. In the early 1950s, America was emerging from two decades of the Great Depression and the New Deal and facing the rise of radical ideologies abroad; the American Right seemed beaten, broken, and adrift. Then in 1953, Russell Kirk released his masterpiece, The Conservative Mind. More than any other published work of the time, this book became the intellectual touchstone for a reinvigorated movement and began a sea change in Americans' attitudes toward traditionalism.Brad Birzer's biography recounts the story of Kirk's life and work, with attention paid not only to his writings on politics and economics, but also on literature and culture, both subjects dear to Kirk's heart and central to his thinking.Dr. Bradley J. Birzer holds the Russell Amos Kirk Chair in History at Hillsdale College, and also serves as an Associate Professor of History.

What is a reactionary and why would anybody claim to be one? That's the question I discuss today with Michael Warren Davis, author of The Reactionary Mind: Why Conservative Isn't Enough. Michael has written for Crisis, The American Conservative, and many other magazines. He describes a reactionary not as one pining for a return to a pristine order, but who purposefully reorients one's life toward what is eternal. We discuss the Middle Ages, Savonarola, the Puritans, and others who teach us how societal blessings come to those who pursue eternal things.

The worlds media are doing their best to ignore what has been happening in Brazil following the Presidential Elections. Matthew Tyrmand is one of the worlds top investigative journalists and he has been one of the most outspoken in calling out this South American steal. A great many Brazilians are refusing to accept the election results, remember that Lula had his 12 year jail sentence overturned by the Supreme Court just so that he could run against Bolsonaro. After nearly 2 months of silence, Bolsonaro finally spoke to his people last week to say he would fight on and win. Join us this episode for all the latest and Matthew's expert analysis of the situation. #VivaBrazil Matthew Tyrmand is a journalist (both investigative and editorial), political strategist, activist, consultant, and investment banker. He is a dual Polish and American citizen deeply engaged in the battle of political ideas in both the USA and Europe. As an unabashed nationalist and populist, he is an outspoken critic of the European Union and American-engineered globalist multi-lateralism and is a consistent voice in the battle to take back Westphalian nation state sovereignty. In the U.S. he works closely with organizations focused on bringing robust fiscal transparency, prudence, and accountability to the public sector as well as rooting out corruption in both the public and private sectors. In Poland, where his father was a pivotal mid-20th century anti-communist writer and dissident (and Holocaust survivor) and later an informal advisor to Presidents Nixon and Reagan on defeating communism, Mr. Tyrmand frequently appears in mass media commenting on Polish, American, and European political issues and contributes twice a week to Polish Television's (TVP) main English language news commentary show. For several years he penned a weekly column for one of Poland's top conservative newsweeklies, Do Rzeczy. He has contributed to numerous English language platforms in the U.S. and Europe including, but not limited to; Breitbart, Forbes, The American Mind, The American Thinker, The American Conservative, The Jerusalem Post, The European Conservative, Big League Politics, Human Events, and numerous outlets in Poland including Wprost, Gazeta Polska, and SuperExpress in addition to authoring two books in the Polish market. He is an actively engaged board member of the guerilla journalism platform Project Veritas working closely alongside it's founder and leader, the modern-day muckraker, James O'Keefe on operations and strategy. Mr. Tyrmand is a Claremont Institute Lincoln Fellow, a Conservative Partnership Institute Haggerty-Richardson Fellow, and a member of the Philadelphia Society. Before getting involved in politics, policy, and activism, he spent his years after graduation from the University of Chicago as an analyst and trader on Wall Street, running equity long/short portfolios in the healthcare, tech, media, and telecommunications sectors for well known New York based hedge funds. Those who know him describe him as "enfant terrible" and describe his mouth as "a weapon of mass destruction." Follow and support Matthew on.....

Transcript of episode (Hearts of Oak) And it's an absolute pleasure to have Mr. Matthew Tymrand back with us once again. Matthew, thank you. (Matthew Tyrmand) Good to be with you, Peter. It's a pleasure being with you. Last time you blew up Sweden, now it's Brazil's turn. So, I think we talked about Sweden, France, Germany, all the sovereignist movements in Europe. It was Europe. I guess now Latin America's my beat. Now you're going Latin. All good. (HoO) You can follow Matthew, of course, at Matthew Tymrand on GETTR, on Twitter, and he is regularly on War Room giving an update of what's happening. I think Matthew and Gateway Pundit are the two main sources for actually getting an update on what's happening in Brazil. But Matthew, Brazil, the elections were the second and 30th of October with the 30th being the runoff. It's been six weeks ago and you've been on this from day one, day to day following it. Do you want to give us an overview of what's happened before we get into some of the nitty gritty stuff. (MT) Sure. So I've been following Brazil. I never expected Latin America to be my beat as we discussed last time. I've got Polish family roots, Polish citizen, a lot of time in Europe working, Poland, Hungary, Sweden, Britain, France, Germany, Belgium, Italy, Spain. You know, Europe's my beat, you know, working right wing party, covering... Populist movements, Sovereign Justice movements. But last year in September, 2021, I went down to CPAC Brazil to speak about media and other issues and was with Jason Miller. And we met with Jair Bolsonaro, and set up a meeting for us. And that was widely covered. And we were detained at the airport by the Supreme Court, which as we'll discuss is not really a court as much as a dictatorship, a bunch of political appointees who are running rough shot over Brazilian constitution and rule of law. They detained us and interrogated us and wanted to know who we met with and wanted us to literally write down names of politicians, journalists, activists, very Stasi-like so that they could be added to the enemies list. Obviously we declined to take part in such exercise, but we were held there and we were finally let go. And I sort of wanted to understand what just happened there. I knew it was bad. I knew that there was a strong bifurcation in Brazilian society along political lines, much like the US, much like Poland, much like many countries in Europe and the West. And what I discovered in the following eight, nine months was as it really did deep dives into the people, the players, the politics, that it is been a judicial dictatorship and autocracy by the judiciary. Judges in theory, judges are supposed to adjudicate rule of law, constitutionality, especially at the Supreme Court level. And here you had a Supreme Court led by a guy who was appointed by the same political cabal as Lula De Silva, the guy who just ran against Bolsonaro for president. And by background, he was president before. And he was convicted of many crimes. Public corruption was sent to prison. But he appointed a lot of judges before that, and after he went to prison, his vice president slash chief of staff, Chief of Staff there, sort of the second in line to the throne in the executive branch, Dilma Rousseff, she served as president for a few years before she was ensnared in the same corruption game, the very famous Operation Car Wash, where the Marxists, and they really are, Sao Paulo Forum Marxists, people that sort of come from the same sort of ideological bent, and this includes Chavez and Maduro, and we'll go through some of the Forum Sao Paulo people, that have swept Latin America. But she was also convicted and impeached. And then Temer came in and served out the rest of her time before Bolsonaro was elected. Now, all these judges on the Supreme Court, not all of them, two were appointed by Bolsonaro and eight were appointed by Lula, Dilma and Temer, Lula and Dilma, eight, and then Temer was one. Alexander de Marais, this Supreme Court head, was appointed by Temer, a former Sao Paulo prosecutor. And he basically prosecutes from the bench. And he has given this court, just, you know, Audubon Bismarck said politics is the art of the possible. He's just taking control. These are not endowed rights, constitutionally endowed rights that the court has. But as I wrote about in this long article that I erred to really break down this dynamic ahead of the election a week or so ahead of the first round of the Brazilian election, I wrote this or published this in September. The first round was October 2nd, as you noted. And I wrote that these are guys that if you could roll up the powers in the U.S. Corollary would be the Supreme Court on a constitutional law basis, the prosecutors like the heads of the DOJ, or Justice Minister in European parliamentary parlance, the head of the prosecutor's office, the head of the investigative criminal division. They've got subpoena power. They've got a law enforcement that they have taken over, like an FBI or an MI5, I think it would be, in the UK, where it would be domestic criminality, the Police that would come and have sort of jurisdictional rights, federally, nationally, as opposed to locally. And you rolled up all these powers in the US, like Sonia Sotomayor and Eric Holder and Jared Nadler and Merrick Garland and legislative members of the legislature who are political animals. You rolled up all these powers, you would have Marais in the Supreme Court. And so of course, they're running rough shot over Brazilian society with these powers in their hands. They're censoring journalists, they're arresting journalists. They are Censoring politicians from Bolsonaro's camp and they're arresting them. Over the last two to three years they've been at war with the right. Everything that the right accuses them of, they then get convicted of. They say the right says the court is assaulting democracy and Constitutional law, so then they get arrested for the charge of assault on democratic institutions. If you criticize the court for overreaching, for abusing its power, then they actually arrest you or censor you, force you to be de-platformed by big tech under the guise of it's an assault on, institutional democracy, which is incredible projection. We know the left likes to project, but I mean, this is whole new levels of evil hypocrisy in a political sphere. So they've put politicians under house arrest, journalists. There's a journalist who has been in exile in, in the US. Recently, Marais revoked his passport. They tried to execute an Interpol red notice against him because of what he writes. Again, journalism, writing. This is not violence. This is not calls for coups or insurrection. This is him writing very, very well-founded in constitutional law about their overreach. And so they tried to get Interpol to arrest him in the US and extradite him to Brazil so they can put him in prison. Obviously, Interpol declined to execute this red notice because they saw the frivolity and the abuse that was inherent in it. So I mean, that's sort of like how we entered into this election cycle and at the same time. Very important to note, Lula De Silva was convicted by three separate courts long before Bolsonaro was appointing any judges anywhere. This was 2015-16, the trials, convicted by three separate courts, 12 charges, 19 judges, 19 judges across three courts, so like tribunal instead of juries, it's you know a bunch of judges on a panel, unanimously voted to convict him. You know people 2012, when he was pushed out of office there were protests in the street and the military helped defend those protests because they saw what he was doing it was widely exposed that he was selling state assets to China for cash in bags laundering it through car wash chain of car washes owned by this party's friends that's hence the name operation car wash and it was his judges that he appointed or his subsequent president appointed or the subsequent president to that appointed, who let him out of prison, vacated his sentences and then annulled the convictions and expunged his record. So let him out of prison, annulled the sentences, first pending never-ending appeal, claiming that the courts didn't have jurisdiction. Now he was convictable in any court in the country because he stole from the whole country. So that's a canard, total bullshit. And then they just said, pending never-ending appeal, you're now free. And then as the appeals started, which never really went through, because before there ever was an appeal heard, they vacated and annulled and expunged his record. And why is that important? Because in Brazil, there's a law, if you're a convicted felon, you cannot run for office. (HoO) So, I mean, this seemed to be that the Supreme Court wanted Lula to run. I mean, a 12-year sentence suddenly disappears under the orders of the Supreme Court, so he can run. (MT) 580 days out of a 12-year sentence he served, and he got off light because there should have been many, many more prosecutions. And there might have been had this not played out because they were always discovering more stuff on the public corruption, whether selling state assets, diverting state funds to friends, including the mainstream media, who are truly died in the wool leftists and Marxist sympathizers. You saw on election night, when they announced it for Lula, claps, there were two places where there were audible cheers. The newsrooms of the mainstream press and the prisons. There are videos of of the prisons and everybody in the prisons is clapping and whoop, whoop, whooping about Lula. His base is narco Traficant, he even wears a hat from a from a famous Rio de Janeiro guerrila narco trafficking group called CPX He wore the hat in his limited campaigning, he couldn't really campaign too wide because everybody knows hes a corrupt convicted felon and he would be met with jeers, even when he was certified on Monday there was nobody there supporting him and the one thing the leftists do really well is they go to the streets and they protest, they turn them out, they frequently astroturf. They try to make themselves look bigger and more prevalent than they really are in terms of representation in society. Meanwhile, you've got 10 million Brazilian patriots by my estimate over the last 46 days now on the streets of every city in Brazil and predominantly obviously Brasilia the capital but also Rio, São Paulo, Belo Horizonte, even places that are leftist strongholds in the north like Recife, Bahia, everywhere. And the revolution will not be televised. None of the global mainstream press is covering it all. The largest human manifestations in at least a democratic country, maybe during the late stages of communism, when people went to the street in places like Hungary, and Czech Republic and Poland, there might've been comparable numbers per capita. And remember Brazil, big country, six largest country in the world, third largest economy in the Western hemisphere, and second largest country in the Western hemisphere after US, Canada, then Brazil, massive 220 million people. And you have a measurable amount of representation per capita on the streets, rain, shine, monsoon, whatever. They're there a lot of times outside military barracks, praying and begging the military to come and save them. And this is a point Bolsonaro made that I'm absolutely co-opted and using in a speech he gave at. He invited the protesters into the grounds of the Alvarado Palace, the White House, Buckingham Palace, the presidential residence. He gave a speech last Friday, then did a demonstration and a prayer vigil on Sunday and then another one on Monday. And by the way, letting, I mean how populous is that, letting people into the presidential grounds so that he could, you know, walk up, hug people. And by the way, he could walk through a crowd and nobody would hurt him. They would hug him, they would love him. Lula cannot go anywhere without 100 plus security guards because everyone wants to rip him shred from shred, limb from limb like Gaddafi. And the police who are on his detail are tipping off the protesters where he is so they come and protest with, like when he was at a hotel last week or a week and a half ago meeting Jake Sullivan, Biden's national security advisor, because obviously they're part of the fix. Global leftism works together. If the military does not act, if they do not invoke Article 142 of the Brazilian Constitution, which is very constitutionally fitting and relevant here, it says in separated power, disputes, which certainly exists right now between the judiciary and the executive branch, as well as election fraud, they have a constitutional right to audit the election, and in their attempt to do so, the TSE, a subsidiary court to the Supreme Court, the STF, blocked them out. They wouldn't give them the machines, they wouldn't give them the source code, they wouldn't give them the tabulation data. So they have very much grounds to act and stabilize society and the Constitution says the military is the stabilizing force in society because they're the institution that's most governed and built up by the fundamentals of hierarchy and discipline and order. And if you notice on Brazilian flag, it's ordum and and progress, so order and progress. So you can't have progress unless you have order. And if you look at Latin America's history, military coups, you know, there was one 1965 that lasted 20 something years. They have a lot of belief in rule of law at this stage. Brazil is one of the most successful constitutional republics in terms of really taking to Western classical liberal standards of rule of law and freedom. They do not have the unfettered First Amendment the US has, but they do have the right to assemble and protest and use their voice, that's constitutionally protected. And then as they're trying to exercise that, Marais, who by the way is also the head of the TSC, the Supreme Electoral Court. So the subsidiary court that oversees the elections. So the Chicanery, the pure evil, I mean, they're arresting now indigenous peoples who have become protest leaders. Indigenous peoples saw they were disenfranchised because they were historically left-wing voters. All their votes in many of these precincts went to Lula, even though they physically voted for Bolsonaro. And they say, what gives? The left has used them as a tool, a device for pushing their agenda for generations. They petitioned the UN committee on indigenous rights and said, hey, what gives? You're supposed to protect their indigenous rights. But I guess that only works if we vote the right way, which is left. So they've been ignored. And now they're arresting them. arrested, they violently arrested one of the major guys, the chief of the Givenchy tribe on Monday after certification, in what I believe is an attempt to try and get the protesters to increase and escalate their volatility and then inject violence. And the left did inject violence. Antifa came in, very few, but enough that they burned some buses, burned some cars, broke some windows. And of course Reuters took Globo, which is sort of CNN of Brazil, major mainstream media, dominant media player, took their account. Bolsonaro protesters are violent and you know, set fire to cars and break windows of cars. And by the way, every car window that was broken had a Brazilian flag on it or the symbol of this movement. The Brazil was stolen flag, which is Brazilian flag that's black and white with Brazil was stolen on it. And so those are the windows getting broken, and there were even gas masks. I mean, in 45 days, 46 days, there had not been a single incidence of violence, vandalism, arson, and you know how we know there wasn't a single incidence? Because if there was even a single incidence, it would be the only thing Globo was running and the only thing they're sending to their their fellow traveling useful idiot leftist Marxists across the globe whether that's Reuters or BBC or Washington Post, New York Times, but it's been crickets. It's been crickets, in the New York Times did run a few reports, dispatches by Jack Nikis, their correspondent at Brazilian, saying that it's a little bit worrisome about the powers that Marais has taken and abused, censoring politicians. At the same time, the courts previously said that Bolsonaro should be held criminally liable for blocking trolls on his Twitter, as the same court is saying, and personal Twitter, the same court is saying, we can remove the voices of anybody we claim, as assaulting democratic institutions by criticizing us, including Villa-Kesis, one of the leading senators, major parliamentarians, House of Deputies, lower house members of the legislature, Gustavo Guyer, Nicholas Ferreira, Carlos Zambelli, tons of journalists today. They just arrested four more journalists, a mixture of journalists, a pastor and an elected. I think it was two journalists, pastor and elected. Four more arrests. So, you know, Marais has said that if the protesters stay out there, they're going to start proceedings to take away protesters' kids because they say it's child abuse. Obviously, lefties, you know, brainwash their kids and bring them to all sorts of manifestations, frequently violent ones, if you look at the Antifa types. So it's pretty fucked up there. It's pretty fucked up. (HoO) Where does Bolsonaro, because Bolsonaro basically was silent for like 45 days and suddenly had, not press conference, but he engaged with his supporters. That was on what, Friday, Saturday? And that was the first time he stepped in and said, no, we're going to win. We're going to fight this. (MT) Why didn't they say that directly? It's not in his hands. I know a lot of people around him. I've got very good sources, whether it's military people, legislative people, executive branch people in the ministries, as well as around Bolsonaro advisors. I'm getting some really good feel. Nobody's telling me anything directly because it's so fog of war. Nobody knows. Of course, when you're talking to government sources, everybody has their own agenda and strategy, so you'll hear a lot of different things. I'll talk to one guy who says, no, we're acting tomorrow. We're going to do this. Another guy goes, nothing's happening. Another guy says, we're going to do it this way in three days, and by the way, these things are probably in motion. They're just trying to push their strategy that they want and have me run it out as a reflexive sort of, you know, create a self fulfilling prophecy through the media. But the timeline is important. Bolsonaro did not concede the night of, he did not concede the next day. On Tuesday, he came out at three o'clock or two o'clock and gave a little press conference, spoke for two minutes and said, follow the constitution, we will follow the constitution. You know, if you believe protesting is warranted in assembling, that's your constitutional right, go to it. Then his chief of staff, who was kind of a technocrat, said we're gonna follow the transition protocols, also constitutionally, but that wasn't a concession. That was them just trying to figure out what their move would be. They were gonna engage in this audit. The military was blocked out in their audit. In the meantime, there's been lots of fraud discovered. Their political party, the Liberal Party, party of the party of the liberal, Bolsonaro's party, put their own report together about fraud and what did the court do with it? They fined the party 22 million reais, about four or five million bucks, and put the head of the party, who is an elder statesman in Brazilian politics, been around for generations, a very serious guy, nobody has ever accused of anything untoward, put him on a criminal law, the same fake news investigation list he's been writing, so put them on the criminal list, that they're gonna investigate him for criminal activity. Now, by the way, they're adding all sorts of other people, Bolsonaro's former cabinet members and previous in the first part of government. Now they're going on criminal lists where they're gonna be investigated by this court. There's no grounds, there's no due process, there's no probable causes we have on the US constitutional basis for such things. But hey, Marxists do what Marxists do, communists do what communists do, we've seen that all over the world. So the timeline, go back to the timeline. So he didn't say anything for a couple of days, then he went silent. A couple of times he went out, waved, moved through people, but no public statements, and I think that was smart. This is not about Bolsonaro. This is what I've tried to drum home, whether it's on Tucker Carlson or on Vantage show or on Emerald Robin show or whoever. That this is not about Bolsonaro. This is about the Brazilian constitution, the Brazilian transition in power, Brazilian elections. This is not a cult of personality. Bolsonaro, if the military acts is not gonna be engaged in a coup, this would be a quelling of a coup by the judicial dictatorship, with the military has a constitutional right to do, to defend against the sovereignty and against the sovereigns enemies, the nation states enemies, foreign and domestic, within and without. They have buffered the borders because Venezuela and Chile keep threatening that if Lula's not seated, they're gonna invade. These are one team, one dream communists. Shaba's in school. But then last Friday, he gave a speech, and then Sunday, the vigil. And in between the time, there've been some military edicts signed, expanding the reserves a week ago, and the site crashed the second they put up a site saying, if you want to be in the Brazilian reserves, and the site crashed within moments because it was so overwhelming. They just passed one yesterday, or Bolsonaro and the Defense Ministry pushed through one yesterday, about mobilization of emergency food suppliers and expedited contracting process. Tells me something's kind of up, and people I know in the military, connected to the military have been absolutely quiet with me, which by the way is a good thing, I got a big mouth, I am who I am. I'm a journalist. If I know something, I'm probably gonna run it out. So it's good they're silent with me on this. If they're gonna bring something to bear in this process, then they should be doing it by the book, by their way, and not leaking it to me or anybody in the Western or domestic media. That being said, the military has moved. There are videos all over. Yesterday morning at 4.30 a.m., what was described as, well, you know, drills or practice or, you know, routine practicing, whatever they call it, right by the Venezuelan border columns, and columns of soldiers, you know, because Venezuela is a risk point, as is Peru, as is Colombia, as is Chile. They're all led by the same millier South Paliform Marxists. And we'll go into South Paliform in a moment. So the military's moving, there've been firefights in the favelas with what's rumoured to be Venezuelan paramilitary operators that moved through these sort of drug trafficking networks. Cause if you recall, you know, Venezuela's laden with that just as Columbia was with FARC. And there's another FARC like Narco trafficking paramilitary guerrilla group that Petro, the new head of Columbia was a long time member of. So the South Palo form where all these people were incubated, people have to recall It was founded in 1990 by two people, Lula and Fidel Castro. Tells you a lot, tells you a lot. 1990 because in 89 to 91, The Soviet Union was falling. Soviet Union was the big funder of Cuba and all the Latin American, Marxist guerilla movements to try and create an Orwellian style, continental nation state construct, In Orwell were three major nation states, Eurasia, Oceania and whatever the other one was, and so this always been the vision for the latin american marxist.Simon Bolivar . He's he is to you know, whoever politically who they want him to be the conservatives hold up the Bolivarians, Bolivarianism as the Marxists do but Marxist Bolivarianism suggests we have to break down all the borders of Latin America of South America and just make one continental super state led. Of course by Marxist is right out of Orwell So Palo forum was formed when Soviet Union money stopped coming in, Cuba needed you know, how do we, you know operate this build this out Marxist workers of the world unite, so Lula and Fidel got together and all sorts of other criminals from across that continent and they incubated such wonderful political leaders and talent as Hugo Chavez Ava Morales RC, the Mora, Bolivia. Uh, Fuji Mari had some connections certainly Castillo who just tried to run this coup last week and dissolving congress, dissolving legislature, South California, the Kirchners, I mean Fernandez, I mean it's a who's who of the war, Ortega, I mean if there's a Marxist in Latin America who was incubated by South Calif and the head of the South California in Brazil, a woman named Monica Valente, she's a part, they even use words like party secretary, it's like they, when people tell you who they are, believe them, party secretary, she's head of Lula's transition now, and she said early on, right after October 30th. We need to protect Brazil's democracy like we have to protect Maduro's hard-fought Venezuelan democracy. And they really believe it. They really believe that Venezuela is the kind of democracy they'd like to make Brazil. So the Brazilian people aren't stupid. Modern history, pre-modern history, they know Latin American history, communism, and all across Latin America. What's happened in Venezuela? What just happened in Chile with Boerich and other young Marxist revolutionaries from the South Hallow Forum and Petro in Colombia? They know it. They haven't lost the plot. They get it. And we will never be communist is one of their refrains. Give us paper ballots is another one. Give us auditable ballots. And that's a whole great, you know, sock we can get into. Bolsonaro pushed it as a congressman and got a paper balloting bill, a backup paper ballot against the machines. So you have the machines, but you also have a paper ballot printout. That thing gets locked for audit purposes. And so when I was in Brazil last September, there was tons of chance in the freedom Independence Day March, give us paper ballots, give us audible ballots. Bolsonaro as a congressman, and I think it was 2016, maybe it was a little over 15, got a bill passed, which by the way, getting bills passed in Brazilian legislature, very, very tough. I mean, there's essentially, I put it on a spectrum of five different, it's like parliamentary politics, there's dozens of parties, but there's really five cohorts. You've got far right, centre right, centre, centre left and far left. So figure 20% give or take. By the way, going forward in this next session, far right and centre right are dominant because Bolsonaro down ballot pulled everybody over the line, governors, senators, lower house legislators. It was like unheard of level of galvanized unity and performance for the right in Brazil. So the fact that he lost to Lula, we all know it's bullshit. We all, there's no way. None of these politicians even exist except for his endorsement. And they won overwhelmingly in places that were left to stronghold for 50 years. That they're now gonna be led on the provincial level and the federal level state-wide by Bolsonaro people, whether they're far right or centre right. But they're all together one thing, anti-communist, anti-socialist, anti-South Paulo Forum, anti-China, anti-globalist. They believe in Brazilian sovereignty and they believe in God, which does bring them together. But so, so Bolsonaro gets this bill passed, Dilma Rousseff is president, so I guess it was pre-16. She vetoes it. Back to legislature and the Congress overrode her veto with a super super majority. Never happens. So then what happens, Supreme Court comes out, by the way, her veto was predicated on something I find hilarious. It's like truth is stranger than fiction with these idiots. She vetoed it because it would cost too much to put a printer, a hundred dollar printer next to their $20,000 voting machine. So she said, Oh, no, fiscally it would be irresponsible. Have you ever noticed socialists or communists to cite fiscal policy as to why they shouldn't Spend money, spend government money? Of course not, it's a fig leaf, it's a canard, it's ridiculous. So Supreme Court takes this congressionally overrode veto legislation and they nix it on constitutional grounds, but on bullshit. They said it would open up privacy concerns. Now at the same time, by the way, I've exposed with Argentinian forensic analyst, Fernando Ceramito, who's hiding in Argentina because they wanna really go at him, because he's exposed huge amounts of fraud, from day three after the election, we expose that Oracle has a undisclosed contract to suck up everybody's private data. So all the voting data, all the personal data, the Ministry of Information is being run out of the electoral court overseen by Marais. So more corruption, more communists, stasi tactics, they've got the Praetorian Guard and the federal police force who are arresting indigenous peoples and journalists and harassing Miller, Jason Miller and myself when we were in Brazil, detaining us, surveilling us, which the mainstream press had the day before we left that broke all the news wires there that we were being surveilled from the moment we landed, which I told them, I mean, like I've dealt with stuff Poland and Central Europe, which has been time in Ukraine, Ive spent time all over the place. So I said, we're probably being surveilled. He goes, Whatever. I said, then when that news story broke, he goes, he was like, Oh, well, you're right. And I said, well, probably gonna be detained at the airport tomorrow. And he goes, Oh, shit, I go, no, it's gonna be good. Be great. Made a big international incident. I credit Mariah for getting me off the side-lines. I wouldn't, I wouldn't have been doing jack shit on Brazil. I wouldn't have been doing, you know, deep dives into the forum and the who appointed the judges and who their friends with and what laws they're breaking and who they put in prison unjustly and under house arrest. I wouldn't have any edge on Brazilian politics and society if it wasn't for Marais detaining us and me getting intrigued. I don't like getting detained illegally. So I like to punch back. So here we are. So now I've been doing 10 to 20 hours of press today. So as a lot of Brazilians say, they want to if the military comes in and they they circumvent Lula and the completion of this coup that's been run out of the, judicial dictatorship, then there's I think there'll be a push to give me honour citizenship, which I'd be all about. I love Brazil. I love the Brazilian people. Brazilian women are the most beautiful women in the world. The food is like the best food in the world. The weather, the cities, just the whole, the people are just so awesome. They're so thoughtful. They're so intelligent. They're so motivated to protect their society. They understand the difference between rule of man and rule of God, higher natural law, and even the truckers, the truckers blockaded, these wasn't like Canadian trucker blockades, and all due respect to the Canadians, they do a great job on that. But they got busted up pretty quickly and it wasn't a huge amount of population saying we're going to we're willing to stay here forever how long it takes. The Brazilians are willing to blockade the ports and the roads and the major arteries. Brazil's one, sixth of the world's food supply. They're willing to blockade it forever if need be. They're willing to starve to protect their sovereignty because they know that if they lose it, if they lose their their constitutionally protected natural rights of natural law and their constitutional rights that that have been. That they work toward and building a robust constitutional republic if they lose that, it's gulags. I think the military knows that too. I think the military, but Lula even said last week, he even publicly stated who he's going to replace all the high command military generals with, his communist cronies. So if they're not motivated to act, then you know what, to be honest, they deserve to go to the gulag. They deserve to have their hands up. (HoO) Tell me more about the military, and I love Brazil as much as you and I've only been once, but a beautiful country. But tell me about the military, where do they fit in? Where is the clash? Where is their allegiance? I mean, you've talked about the legal side, about the Supreme Court and the battles legally, which reminds me of the same situation in the US in the 2020 elections. But over the military, which is again quite different, and I guess from anyone in the West, you don't think the military has been separate from the government or separate from the judicial is just all in one. But I guess Latin America is quite different. So where did the military fit into this? Cause I read a number of reports, the military being on the sidelines, what does that mean? And who are they accountable to? (MT) The military had, you know, a 65 page report about the, the, the elections and saying, you know, we can't prove fraud yet because you won't give us the machine source code of tabulation data, but it certainly doesn't look good. And the fact that you're blocking us out, the military and you know, Latin America's got this history of communism, then reaction back. And Pinochet was an anti-communist reactionary. He threw the communists from helicopters, which I would never condone until watching, until getting to know Brazil. To be honest, Marais and these judges who have so subverted rule of law and arrested their political enemies, just as bad, just on a level of the Soviet Union, of Stalin, of Khrushchev, of Brezhnev, of Lenin, of Jurginsky. I mean, they are ends justify the means leftist and the corrupt as shit. I mean, the Politburo will live well. You know, Animal Farm, you know, the Napoleon and Snowball will live high on the hog. And these people are totally corrupt. Their friends are going to feed and everybody else, they'll rob the wealth of the country, sell to China, give it to help buffer Cuba. You remember when Lula was there, last time he was giving Petrobras, Petrobras was a big center of the biggest company in the country. the state oil giant and they were helping buffer and support Cuba and Venezuela and selling to China. So this is a repeat. I think the military knows, given the history, there's a lot of generals who actually have not remained silent. They're not running their mouth off the way I do, the way Miller does, or the way our friends who are analysts, journalists, and political activists do, they're military guys. And by the way, Bolsonaro was a career military guy before entering politics. But they have made public statements. One of them, and a lot of these military guys have also gone into politics when they retire, very senior guys. So there's a very strong connection ideologically and politically. But there are some scumbag military guys as well. There were four guys that Paolo Figurito, an exiled journalist here in Florida who's left Brazil because he can't go back for the same reasons that Alonso Santos is exiled in Virginia. That's who they put the red notice for, revoked his passport. By the way, they've also revoked issuance of new passports because I think they don't want anyone to escape the impending communism because they want to go after everyone. I mean, this is a court that was airing private businessmen's WhatsApp messages when they were bashing the court and saying we defend Bolsonaro. So they publicized it and then they tried to arrest them. Business guys, just normal guys, not breaking any laws, just saying the court's really running amok. Okay, we're gonna subpoena the stuff because they hear about it and they leak it and then they air it all. I mean, really dirty pool, Soviet style tactics, Stasi style tactics. But Paulo Figueredo named three or four generals who were trying to push back on any military guys, who were saying we should invoke Article 142, we need to take action, saying, no, no, we'll be fine under Lula. Trust us. Palo named them publicly and effectively took them off the field. And there have been rumors in the last couple of days that they'll be fired in the next few days by the Defense Ministry in Bolsonaro. Hopefully they will. Also important to note that Bolsonaro has still elevated other generals There have been ceremonies that have gotten publicized, putting the new rank on the chest of a couple of naval guys, a couple of generals. So there is movement, but there are a few very senior generals. And by the way, Brazil is the most social media engaged country in the world. So when you lose your social media voice, whether you're a politician or whoever you are, it's a big deal there. And some of the politicians who have been leading the charge, calling out the court, who have lost it, the generals have said, that is unconstitutional. One general who was a running mate for Bolsonaro, Hamilton Mourao, a political guy now, very well respected. And again, because Brazil has so much social media engagement, these generals have like 2 million followers. They have as many followers as the party leaders, the legislature leaders in the Senate and the Chamber of Deputies, the lower house of the legislature. So they have gravitas when they say something. Hamilton Mourao was the first one to come out. This was a few weeks ago. This was right after the second round. And he said, he cited on the anniversary, the 87th anniversary of a communist insurgency, the first one in Brazil in 1935 that came from within the military. He said, we put that one down and we are on guard. We are ever vigilant. Another one said, echoed those statements a few days later. Another general said, load up on food, gas and cash, which tells you a little bit of something. Just said public announcement, public service announcement, load up on food, fuel and cash. I mean, that kind of tells you something. I think something's coming. I think they were waiting. I was incorrect in my initial assessment about the certification, which is very equivalent to the January 6th in the US with a certified president. And that's when they had Antifa come down from the hills and set buses on fire. And Reuters said, Bolsonaro supporters are setting buses on fire. Meanwhile, there's video of some of the guys who had, they turned out the next day that some of these guys they found and they were paid 200 Riyals to do it. They were vagabonds. They were homeless drifter, grifter types. And then there were some guys yelling. ...... Which means out-Bolsonaro. So, I mean, you know, but Reuters, without uncritically, unanalytic ally, just runs out what Globo says. Globo's even said, I mean, to give you an example, how corrupted this media is. They're all in the tank with the court. The court says we now need to arrest the First Lady because she was beating the protesters, aiding and abetting the illegal protests, which, by the way, are not illegal. I mean, it's a real mess. I mean, you see, and it's been so fluid. Gateway Pundit's been great on writing the stuff. It says, plug, Richard Abelson there has been covering like crazy. We talk every day. We compare notes on our sources. And I've been doing a lot of this stuff, the talking, the live action, Tucker, Bannon, you, Emerald, Gaffney on, Senator CSP, just tons of this stuff, live streams on GETTR. So, you know, very, very fluid. Another, point I do want to make just to show you how big the fix was in. In November, all eight of the Dilma and Lula and Temer appointed justices, went to New York for a meeting at the Harvard Club. They convened a conference with the incoming Lula cabinet ministers. By the way, he's supposed to be separate powers. Judges supposed to judge the law and not party with their communist cronies. After they certified him, Lula the other day, Marius and a bunch of them went and partied with a well-known, together, Lula and them. With a well-known communist lawyer, like a major communist figure down there. So, but in November in New York at the Harvard club, they convened this conference with the incoming Lula cabinet ministers and these eight communist Marxist, Sao Paulo forum, Lula, Dilma, Temer appointed judges. They booked the room well before the second round of the election months ago. They knew, they knew. And for the, you would even say that if you're in Brazil, you lose your social media. Are you even getting potentially arrested as they're doing now? So the certification, my mistake on timing was, I thought that the certification was less of a formality and more of a big deal. And what I've learned since is it's not the only big deal is does Lula walk up the ramp as they say, That's the sort of terminology. Walk up the ramp and the equivalent of a swearing in for the president where he puts his hand on the Bible in the US, walk up the ramp and accept the sash and become anointed head of state. And that's right after New Year's Day. So that'll be January 2nd or January 3rd. I think January 2nd, Monday, January 2nd. By the way, the certification was supposed to be this coming Monday, the 19th, but the electoral court moved it up to the 12th. No constitutional allowance for that exists. They just did it. Again, they are very Bismarckian. Politics to the art of the possible. Just do it, and hey, see what happens, come at me bro." So they did the certification on Monday, and after the certification Marais gave a public statement saying, mission assigned, mission accomplished. I mean, it's like, they don't even hide what they're doing, and that if you criticise them and point out the granular fallacy of it all, then you get arrested. I mean, it's right out of Sovietism. It's pretty nuts. (HoO) Where does the pressure come? Because there isn't any pressure from surrounding countries in Latin America. Democracy works to varying degrees in different countries. (MT) It's pressure from Venezuela, Colombia under Petro, Chile under Boric, Peru, that they better seat Lula or they're going to invade. Another reason you're seeing military moving around the countries from the Chocos and securing the borders. But they have no allies, which is insane. I mean a couple of people, Ted Cruz gave a moderately sympathetic statement, but none of the politicians in the West and the US and Europe, nobody even knows what's going on. Swedish press, Polish press, Hungarian press, Slovakian press, but right-wing press, alternative press, the way you and I always are. So this thing doesn't have a critical mass like the BBC or, you know, Rye in Italy or Odyssey France press or, but, you know, TVP has been good. You know, Polish television has been good. I'm a contributor there, so, because I'm a dual citizen. But they don't have any allies. I'm guessing the US politicians who are aware of this, I've talked to many of them, and just said, you know, what's going on here? You should know what's going on here, guys. I mean, Marco Rubio runs Latin American policy in this country, and he's like, the guy. Nothing, nothing. Now, if Bolsonaro does see Article 142 invoked, in theory, he has to sign a letter authorizing the defense ministry to activate the military and invoke this constitutional article. Some rumors say that it's been signed already. I would argue that the military should do this unilaterally and ignore the executive under the guise that he's a lame duck and he's essentially out of power. I know he's still in power. The problem is that the second something does happen that's kinetic and they take action, they raid the Supreme Court and the electoral court, they go out and they take the machines by force. By the way, we have a video of a Sunday in Sao Paulo a week after the second round, a Sunday afternoon, four o'clock, all the machines, not all, but a cache of machines, voter machines from this. And by the way, some of the work done on this machine shows that certain modern series are programmed by default to annul votes and to be programmed, have communication device and all the things that the laws passed on the running of the election it flies in the face of. But this one cache in Sao Paulo of machines was being moved in boxes onto the back of a truck, an unmarked truck. And it looked to be unconfirmed, but looked to be a trucking logistics company because we got the weaponized autists everywhere, that it was a truck belonging to a company that is run and owned by a PT Lula party legislator. So it tells you a lot. The law is very clear, by the way. The machines can't be touched for 60 days. They can't be disassembled, can't be touched for 60 days. So a week after they're being moved. So there's a lot of different things. But I think that if the military does take action, which I believe they will, I think they will, even rumors that Bolsonaro has resigned as president in a private military sort of convocation and given the powers of the executive branch to the military as a caretaker. I don't believe that's true, but it is floating around. So I'm throwing that out there just because it's one of the things I've heard from certain sources. I think that will get publicized pretty quickly if that were the case. But whenever anything does occur, something does occur, I believe that what you're going to see is the revolution now will be televised by the entire global media complex and it, will go, Bolsonaro executes military coup against democratic elections that elected Lula. Nowhere in those articles will it say that Lula was let out of prison by his appointees for looting the country for 10 years. Nowhere will that be said. I read something in Brookings, they're fucking embarrassment, by an analyst saying that Lula was the most popular president ever. His socialist policy, Bolsa Familia, elevated so many people out of poverty and he will win in a landslide because he's so popular and never even mentions he was convicted for anything. And nobody in the country, I mean, you go to stadiums, people are watching the World Cup in stadiums, they're watching it remotely, and they were chanting, or car races, they were chanting, Lula's a convicted thief, Lula is convicted thief. They call him Squid. His nickname across the country is Squid. And it ain't for anything good. So I mean, we're gonna see the global media, you know, take action and run an info war. And then what's gonna happen? I told this to Bannon, I'll tell it to your audience. We need to get real vocal. That's why I'm doing so many of these things because I want people to have real fact pattern. You know me and I think people can hear me. I'm nothing if not comprehensive. I will throw out facts all day long and put them into context so that we can fight back because the leftist media, the mainstream media, the global media, they ain't gonna talk facts. They're gonna say these poor maligned Supreme Court justices that Bolsonaro's trying to go over, never mention they're imprisoning journalists, they're deplatforming everybody, that their ties to South Valle forum. They'll never mention the South Valle forum and how it was started by Fidel Castro and Lula in 1990. Lula's criminal history, Lula being close to all the drug gangs, wears a CPX hat as I said. I mean his base is criminals, criminals and media. So that's a redundancy I guess. (HoO) Just to finish off, where does this leave democracy in many parts if the system is an electronic system that can be controlled by those on the left and the left also have a big hand in the judicial system as we basically saw in the States, even when it went to the Supreme Court, actually they wouldn't call it out. It's very different than where we are. I mean, in Britain, it's just the stupidity of our electorate, basically put to say, it's a paper ballot. So yeah, it's different. (MT) But you also have some really shitty issues going on there where rule of law is also under attack and it's not getting publicized. When constabularies can go to the homes of somebody for tweeting something and arrest them as we've now seen several dozen times in the provinces and these are not you know lefty strongholds then you know this is fraying you know the Orwellian dystopic vision is playing out thanks to big tech thanks to the consolidated powers of information flow that government has control or access to so i mean it is worrisome Brazil is the bulwark I say you watch Bannon and i sit on Bannon and every single time, Brazil falls the far so takes over South America, a very wealthy continent, Brazil itself, you know, one sixth of the world's food supply, but also iron ore, oil, manganese, bauxite, tin, cobalt, copper, gold, I mean, very wealthy. The most, and Amazon, stuff in the Amazon, we don't even know the drugs and therapeutics that we're going to make from species of plants and bugs and shit that we don't even, we've never even discovered yet. And that's part of the play. It's the same thing that what's her face, Maloney was saying about France and the French colonies in Africa. You know that, okay, you're so egalitarian as you rape, you're still raping the colonies of Africa, even if they're quote unquote independent, you're still treating them like protectorates. Well, if Brazil falls, then all of Latin America is gone. We saw Colombia and Chile, the two furthest generally right nation states in Latin America, at least in South America, because Guatemala is pretty decent and Honduras give or take sometimes. But you know scaled up societies that have fallen out to the foreign so Paulo in the left. Brazil falls, China owns all of South America and that's obviously a threat to the Pax American in the west and the US. I mean AMLO, López Obrador in Mexico also a Sao Paulo foreign guy. So I mean it's it ain't good and there's a reason. The useful idiots of our side, the lefties on our side who believe, oh yeah, little socialism and big government's fine and they're not even averse to communism, they're the proverbial, you know, what Lenin said, they're the capitalists who will sell us the rope with which they'll hang them. Biden, the corrupt comatose vegetable that he is, said, and obviously he didn't say it, he probably fell asleep at four o'clock after his ice cream cone or his jello, but he had said right after, like moments after the tabulation was done. Congratulations Lula for the fair free and credible elections. How the fuck would you know that one minute after the tabulation? They don't have, IRI, the International Republican Institute, whose job it is to look at election fraud around the world, silent. Organization of American states, silent. UN, silent. EU, silent. State departments, silent. NSA, silent. I mean it's like, it's a giant global fix because they hate Bolsonaro like they hate Trump. Meanwhile more popular maybe than any leader anywhere in the world. He's probably the most popular, at least in a country of more than 10 million people. We're talking 220 million people. (HoO) Yeah, absolutely, Matthew, thank you so much for your time. Our viewers and listeners can follow you at @MatthewTyrmand. Make sure and follow Matthew on GETTR or Twitter for keep your finger on the pulse and also make sure and watch Gateway Pundit that are bringing daily articles, keeping you posted on what is happening. So we'll certainly watch this closely. (MT) And Bannon's War Room, I'm doing Bannon sometimes multiple times a day. He's kind of tipped the spear on this. Because Bannon and I were talking about Brazil for the last two to three years. We saw what was going to happen. I wrote about this a year ago and talked about it. And then, then obviously everything played out exactly as I wrote about, you know, and published in details in August, September. And so War Room, Emerald Robinson, I'm doing a few times a week and sort of all over the place, posting as much as I can on social media as I get information or as I do these segments and pods. I throw them up there as quick as I can so that people are informed and have information. And again, Brazilian people, the best people in the world. We need to stand with our Brazilian brothers and sisters in arms and cousins, because if they do not fail this coup, it will be Venezuela within a year. The gulags will start in a few months. Hell, he's not even president yet. They're already gulagging people for arrest today. The indigenous leader on Monday, they're already doing it. They've already censored. Now they're already starting Gulag. So, I mean, we've got to fight this. (HoO) Yeah, completely, completely. Matthew, thank you so much.
Scott is joined by Daniel Larison to discuss a piece he wrote recently that aims to rebut an article published in Foreign Policy. Larison criticizes that article, written by Nadia Schadlow, for using right-wing language to argue that conservatives have always and should always rally around the war machine in Washington. Scott and Larison talk about the absurdity of that position and observe how the opposite is true. Discussed on the show: “The battle for who owns ‘conservative statecraft'” (Responsible Statecraft) “Conservative U.S. Statecraft for the 21st Century” (Foreign Policy) A Republic, Not an Empire by Pat Buchanan “George Packer's attempt to carve up restraint is a real turkey” (Responsible Statecraft) Scott's debate with Bill Kristol Taibbi's Debate on the mainstream media Daniel Larison is a contributing editor at Antiwar.com, contributor at the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft and former senior editor at The American Conservative magazine.

Several months ago, Daniel McCarthy—editor of Modern Age and Editor-at-Large of The American Conservative—published an essay in First Things entitled “The Right Right.” McCarthy's essay was a review of Yoram Hazony's Conservatism: A Rediscovery and Matthew Continetti's The Right: The Hundred-Year War for American Conservatism. In this episode of LBE, McCarthy talks about what was commendable in both books, and where both works can be fairly critiqued. Kevin asks Daniel about his review, about Willmoore Kendall's populist conservatism, and how to reaffirm the importance of Christianity as “public truth” in America.

This lecture is a part of the Annual Pearl Harbor Day Lecture Series and is presented in collaboration with IWP's China/Asia Program. Recorded live on November 29, 2022 at The Institute of World Politics in Washington, D.C.. About the Lecture Xi Jinping is not only implementing the fastest military buildup since the Second World War, but he is also mobilizing the Chinese people for war. He has just created a new war cabinet. He talks about war all the time. The American political and military establishments, however, are not taking Xi seriously, and in Washington, there is an evident lack of sense of urgency. This mismatch will have severe consequences.

We discuss the growing desire within the Republican party establishment to move away from Donald Trump toward someone like Governor Ron DeSantis. It's like we have returned to 2015/early 2016 when the "Never Trump" movement within the GOP was prominent, but now things have escalated, and even if the Trump cat is able to be put into the bag so to speak, the complete takeover of the American Conservative movement by the parties responsible for Trump becoming President (both domestic and foreign) is something that is not going away. We also discuss the new breed of Democratic party leadership who appear to be taking over from Nancy Pelosi, James Clyburn, and Steny Hoyer, and if this is another political example of Meet The New Boss, Same as the Old Boss. We close by discussing prominent Evangelical Zionist Michael Evans expressing buyer's remorse over Trump while basically expressing a refusal to support another Presidential run, and what this might mean. support us-https://www.patreon.com/Theantedote Show Links-https://www.patreon.com/posts/75033364?pr=true --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/the-antedote/support

The Rich Zeoli Show- Hour 1: According to Polish media reports, two people were killed in an explosion at a grain processing facility in Poland along the Ukraine-Poland border. Speaking to the press, Defense Department Spokesman Brigadier General Pat Ryder said the Pentagon does not have confirmation that the explosion was part of a Russian missile barrage. Though, he did reiterate statements made by President Joe Biden in the past—the United States will defend every inch of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) territory. Poland is a NATO member. In a recent Wall Street Journal opinion editorial, former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson argued that “any compromise” with Russian President Vladimir Putin, regarding his country's continued attack on Ukraine, “would be unjust.” In a new opinion editorial featured in The American Conservative, Senator-elect J.D. Vance (R-OH) contended that former President Donald Trump is not to blame for a "red wave" never materializing in last week's midterm elections. Vance, instead, believes the problem was as simplistic as fundraising—specifically Republican failure to attract “small-dollar” donations.

Poland is a NATO member. 3:20pm- In a recent Wall Street Journal opinion editorial, former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson argued that “any compromise” with Russian President Vladimir Putin, regarding his country's continued attack on Ukraine, “would be unjust.” 3:45pm- In a new opinion editorial featured in The American Conservative, Senator-elect J.D. Vance (R-OH) contended that former President Donald Trump is not to blame for a "red wave" never materializing in last week's midterm elections. Vance, instead, believes the problem was as simplistic as fundraising—specifically Republican failure to attract “small-dollar” donations. 4:05pm- During a press briefing on Tuesday afternoon, State Department Principal Deputy Spokesperson Vedant Patel offered few additional details on the reported Russian missile strike in Poland along the Ukraine-Poland border. U.S. officials have not confirmed reports. 4:15pm- According to a study from NewsBusters, in the lead-up to the November 8th midterm elections, late-night television hosts Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Meyers, Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert, James Corden, and Trevor Noah had 47 liberal guests on their programs and 0 conservatives. 4:40pm- John Hook—President of The Hook Group, a management consulting firm—joins The Rich Zeoli Show to discuss his recent editorial, “The Philadelphia Effect.” Hook writes, “Philadelphia –a small chunk of land along the Delaware River across from New Jersey – can have an outsize influence on the entire rest of the commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Basically, whatever Philadelphia wants is sometimes what the entire state gets, whether the rest of the state wants it or not.” Read the article at: https://www.statecollege.com/opinion-the-philadelphia-effect/ 4:50pm- According to a report from The Post Millennial, Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney has suggested that the city will “expand its use of civilians in some roles within the Philadelphia Police Department” so that police officers can better focus on violent crime. Isn't that the plot of Police Academy 4? 5:00pm- Democrat Katie Hobbs has defeated Republican Kari Lake to become the next governor of Arizona.

Emily Books of The Hill writes, “[t]he 31 votes opposing McCarthy easily” meets the threshold necessary to prevent McCarthy from seizing "the gavel when the full House meets to choose the Speaker early next year.” 5:25pm- The Daily Wire reports that despite overall disappointing results for Republicans in Tuesday's midterm elections, conservatives did manage to flip several school boards across the country—including in blue states like New Jersey and Michigan. 5:40pm- While speaking with Congressman Chip Roy (R-TX) at a Congressional hearing, Stanford Professor Dr. Jay Bhattacharya described medical censorship during the COVID-19 pandemic as a “disaster” and suggested that it may have led to people being killed during the pandemic. 5:50pm- A person on TikTok announced they were “trigender”—identifying as male, female, and neither all at the same time… 6:10pm- Russia denies any responsibility for an explosion at a grain processing facility in Poland which resulted in two people being killed. U.S. officials are still attempting to discover the origins of the deadly blast. 6:15pm- Will Donald Trump announce he's running for President tonight?
This week on Antiwar Radio, Scott talks with retired Colonel Douglas Macgregor about the war in Ukraine. From the beginning, Macgregor has been very critical of the Biden Administration's myopic insistence on escalation. Now, it appears that a divide has broken out within Washington about how much further the U.S. and NATO can go. Scott and Macgregor discuss this evolving dynamic and reflect on all the missed chances for peace that would have left Ukraine with more territory and fewer lives lost. Now, with what appears to be a massive Russian offensive in the works, Macgregor says the west must put an end to the war as soon as possible. Discussed on the show: “Playing at War in Ukraine” (The American Conservative) “It's Time to Bring Russia and Ukraine to the Negotiating Table” (New York Times) “Will Biden Gamble on a Ukraine Coalition?” (The American Conservative) Scott's interview with Lyle Goldstein Why is Ukraine the West's Fault? Featuring John Mearsheimer Douglas Macgregor, Col. (ret.) is a senior fellow with The American Conservative, the former advisor to the Secretary of Defense in the Trump administration, a decorated combat veteran, and the author of five books.
