Author, historian, and political commentator Victor Davis Hanson takes to the National Review airwaves for discussions of national politics, history, and more. He is joined by NR's vice president Jack Fowler for this weekly podcast.
No Umbrage Zone: The Left, Left Out
Victor discusses the fallout from the riots at the U.S. Capitol, the impact on the legacy of Donald Trump, the media’s relentless double standards, Joe Biden’s “healing” rhetoric, and the recall effort against California governor Gavin Newsom.
Georgia, No Peace I Find
Victor discusses the ramifications of the Georgia Senate special elections, just how horribilis was the annus 2020, the sneaky ways used by college administrators to suppress politically incorrect professors, the achievements of Devin Nunes, and wrestling far above your weight class.
Speak with Woked Tongue
Victor ends 2020 discussing the vocabulary of Wokespeak, America’s “Animal Farm” media and its post-election flipping of political good and bad, President Trump’s proclamation on the 850th anniversary of Saint Thomas Beckett’s martyrdom, Red China's global social-media propaganda campaign to promote lockdowns, and the effort by school progressives to ban Homer and other dead white male authors.
'Nemesis Is Holding on Line One'
Today Victor looks at Joe Biden, alleged Healer of the Nation, and also the man (and his enabling media) whose hubris have dates with comeuppance, plus Red China’s on-all-fronts efforts to weaken America, John Kerry’s looming Climate Czarship, the MSM’s strange lack of interest in spy/love ties of Congressman Erik Swalwell, and some reflections on youthful Christmases with BB guns under the tree.
It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad Left World
On today’s episode Victor discusses the root causes of the new mad Left, the “Hydroxy Effect” facing Joe Biden, the Hoover Institution’s Strategika journal and its new discussion on the pandemic’s impact on Red China, and the immigration/amnesty threat that a Biden administration may unleash on the American people and economy.
Hate Speech towards Free Speech
Victor discusses Joe Biden's brave new world; the disdain of free speech by America's journalists; fed-up small-business owners in California; the late Walter Williams; and on this, the 79th anniversary of America’s declaration of war against Japan, his thoughts on why the Empire believed it could defeat America and control the Pacific.
