    The Three Whisky Happy Hour: Memphis Blues Again

    The Three Whisky Happy Hour: Memphis Blues Again

    John Yoo assumes the host chair for this week’s episode, and despite declaring this week to be a Ukraine-Free Zone, Lucretia still manages to get in a sequel to some of last week’s discussion threads. But the main event for the first third of this episode is reviewing the dreadful events in Memphis last week, […]

    Power Line University, Lesson 6: The Progressive Attack on the Federalist

    Power Line University, Lesson 6: The Progressive Attack on the Federalist

    This week’s Power Line University seminar on The Federalist completes our discussion of the separation of powers in Federalists 47 – 51, and then takes an extended detour into the Progressive Era attack on the separation of powers and other basic principles embedded in The Federalist—and by extension, in the Constitution. There are few things […]

    The Three Whisky Happy Hour: Tanking Ukraine

    The Three Whisky Happy Hour: Tanking Ukraine

    Many of The Federalist Papers bear the title, “The Same Subject Continued,” and with a lot of news about the Ukrainian situation coming out this week, we decided to continue last week’s vigorous argument over Ukraine with some of the new facts, such as how much of our own munitions inventory is being drawn down […]

    Power Line University, Lesson 5: Federalist 47 – 51 and the Separation of Powers

    Power Line University, Lesson 5: Federalist 47 – 51 and the Separation of Powers

    We continue our leisurely stroll through The Federalist with an extended look at Federalist numbers 47 through 51, which explain the key concept of the separation of powers—a phrase that is nowhere found in the text of the Constitution, but which is clearly implied by the design and structure of the text. But Madison and […]

    Jean Yarbrough & Dan Lowenstein on the Liberal Arts

    Jean Yarbrough & Dan Lowenstein on the Liberal Arts

    This classic format episode features a conversation with Dan Lowenstein, professor emeritus at UCLA Law School and, more importantly, the impresario of UCLA’s Center for the Liberal Arts and Free Institutions (CLAFI), which he founded, along with one of our favorites at Power Line, Jean Yarbrough of Bowdoin College. Prof. Yarbrough was in town for three […]

    The Three Whisky Happy Hour: Freaks, Geeks, Leaks, and Ukrainamania

    The Three Whisky Happy Hour: Freaks, Geeks, Leaks, and Ukrainamania

    This week’s raucous episode, recorded well after conventional happy hour ends, ranged from Biden’s dementia to the failed Dobbs leak investigation, to Kevin McCarthy’s (relatively) good week, the post hockey ergo propter hockey fallacy,  bidding good riddance to one of the premier COVID cultists, a defense of cat-calling (even when it’s done to our Lucretia), and […]

Political but Fun

The most brilliant and entertaining political podcast I have found. Three smart conservatives rip to shreds the woke left in America b

Talk about what you know

I like the show but your discussion of the tanks is wildly inaccurate. Abrams has 2 crew members. Wrong. Ammunition is radioactive. Wrong. The rounds are depleted uranium. McMasters is one of the greatest tank commanders. Just wrong. He was a Captain in Desert Storm.

Listen more to the smart lady who talks on this show and please don’t comment on things you know about.
