  1. Yup, Andrew Sullivan seems blissfully free of redeeming qualities, and singularly self-centered. Straightening himself out would be a good start on the path to redemption.

  2. Great interview. Oddly, gave me some hope if it's correct what I interpreted Mr. Hanson as saying that many Latin Americans who arrived via the Liberal open borders are striving for family centered lives and not some crazy chaos, so that they will vote Republican. Please, let that be true!!!

  3. This hasn't aged all that well has it. The 10 year old rape victim was real and her rapist found. The left has no real power…the Biden admin is a centrist coalition of disaffected Republicans,Centrists and leftist.
    The 1/6 committee has done a terrific job and the DOJ has the planned coup attempt as a target. Ginnifer Thomas once a cult member is a election denier and was involved in supporting the coup. The Supreme Court is more "Activist" than ever.

  4. Why doesn’t the royal family sell some of there plunder to uplift the homeless and poor??? They always want musk to do it but he made his money he didn’t fleece his cash from the public they rule over

  5. 8/5/22. The S
    Ds are ready to pass legislation that will allow Medicare and Medicaid to negotiate drug prices and many other family kitchen table issues. Nothing to do with the rights grievance politics of guns,abortion,guys etc.. The right fomented a freaking coup and rejected the norms and values of the Republic. This guy give the incredibly unorganized left way too much credit. I haven't heard him mention Fake Electord trump sent to overturn the election. Here's the deal ..the right has to have a real platform …not just grievances.

  6. DeSantis baits the left.. that's his appeal.. no kitchen table issues…nada.
    The next candidate for the Ds will be Amy Klobachar…she could beat DeSantis. She's a centrist.

  7. They picked Biden as they have picked many others before him. Do not trust the next one anymore than the current one. It's puppetry and a distraction.

  8. This is brilliant and enlightening. Always love to listen to the careful and precise logic of Victor Davis Hansen.
    I thoroughly enjoyed the comparison to British and American systems and it’s close similarities.

  9. Is this the new Jordan Peterson since JBP went off the deep end and started going schizophrenic?

    How long before this guy starts popping benzos too? Rightwingers always know how to pick em!

  10. I laughed out loud when he called California a "failed state" 🤣

    What does he consider all the states running deficits, buying goods from California and China on credit? Alabama must be a wasteland by his definitions?

  11. VDH is a fascist himself so it makes sense that he’s fear mongering about progressivism. Really interesting that he’s purposely furthering BS conspiracy theories instead of citing actual evidence of America’s failings (like Trump’s numerous crimes). This guy is the worst.

  12. Yeah somehow I don't blame them considering along with Poodleoosi they've practically started world war3 but Kamala isn't going to be any better than him. If anything she'll be even worse and Pelosi with her Italian temper and Iust for revenge is the last thing we need right now. They might as well call Trump and tell him he can have his job back. But of course they're not going to do that either. If that happened it would be a mericle.

  13. Victor is a brilliant man! His knowledge is incredible he tells the truth and doesn't peddle lies like a lot of leftist tend to do. He's one of my favorite historians/philosophers.

  14. Biden is the most popular President ever – he has to win a 2nd term mathematically – it is not possible to change the swing in the next election so we will have another Biden Term we have to.

  15. Whenever I hear conservatives or liberals, either one, they have their ideas that they invent in their heads. Ooo no southern border…scary…but there is one. Ooo…radical late-trm

  16. Trump’s mob going inside the capital building was to stop the transfer of presidential power. That’s a felony.

    They also chanted to hang the Vice President and threatened to drag Nancy Pelosi out by her hair. They caused Congress to stop and flee for their safety which is also criminal:

    Whoever threatens, directly or indirectly, to commit any crime of violence with purpose to terrorize another or to cause evacuation of a building, place of assembly, vehicle or facility of public transportation or otherwise to cause serious public inconvenience, or in a reckless disregard of the risk of causing such terror or inconvenience may be sentenced to imprisonment for not more than five years or to payment of a fine of not more than $10,000, or both.

  17. Want to make the US Army look more like America? Then 25% of the Army must be under the age of 18 and another 25% must be age 55 or older! Half of the Army must be female. Some of these soldiers will be unable to wear modern body armor and other protective equipment. What percentage of the Army must be disabled? Will we screen so that current party affiliation in the Army matches the rest of the nation–if there's 80% Republicans and 15% Third Party, will the remaining 5% Democrats be the officer corps or just recruits?

    This argument is more haystack than strawman.
