Jenny Beth Martin discusses politics, the Trump impeachment and why she co-founded the Tea Party Patriots.
Is the climate debate fueled by overheated climate models, inflated CO2 emission scenarios, disregarded basic data on human health and well being, and relentless exaggeration by political interests claiming to speak for “the science”?
We had the good fortune to have Ron Nicol and Edwin Meese on The Bill Walton Show the day the Mueller report was released. Meese, a former U.S. Attorney General, says Robert Mueller should have made a decision on obstruction of justice by the president and that at least one of his attorneys was a “totally irresponsible, unprofessional, unscrupulous lawyer” whom “should not be in any part of the Department of Justice.” There’s much more in this penetrating analysis by one of our foremost Constitutional authorities.”

Ronald Reagan was a winner who believed in the boundless potential of America. Sound familiar? It’s one of the reasons Donald Trump is succeeding despite the relentless criticism. He “has a finger on the pulse of millions and millions and millions of Americans.” He beat 17 other candidates to get elected and then outsmarted Congress and his own advisers to get a much better tax bill.

American Enterprise Institute’s Peter Wallison and I explain why this is such a huge problem on my new podcast.
The Bill Walton Show: Episode 15 – Bill gets a briefing from George Gilder, who predicted the smart phone and a whole lot more… back in the 1980’s. Hance Haney also joins the conversation to discuss his work lobbying the FCC.
It’s beginning to look like an opportunity squandered. Our pro-prosperity president wants a pro-growth tax package, but our Republican Congress cannot break out of self-imposed constraints and pass one. (Note: The information in this show is current as of November 11, 2017)
