Kudlow, Rasmussen: Why Weekends Exist!

Tomorrow, Radio Free Kudlow will rock the nation’s airwaves as it does every Saturday (find a listing of all stations carrying Larry here, or listen via the web here, or get the podcast here — there are no excuses for not listening!). On the next big broadcast, Larry will be talking to big brains such as NR’s own Bob Costa, William McGurn, Brian Kelly, Mike Ozanian, David Malpas, John Tamny, Steve Moore, James Pethokoukis, and John McIntyre, who’ll be taking on topics such as Obama’s and Romney’s competing videos (47 percent vs. redistribution), whether the White House fibbed about the Libya attacks, the stock market rally, QE3, and the 100-day countdown to Taxmageddon. Listen and learn, my free-market friends.

Meanwhile, our pope of pollsters pal Scott Rasmussen’s new syndicated television program, What America Thinks, will feature Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker as its special guest. Scott Ross (of liberal One Wisconsin Now) and conservative strategist Deb Jordahl will hash out the state of Badger State politics, while Kristen Soltis (The Winston Group) and Emily Tisch Sussman (Young Democrats of America) will be debating public-employee pensions. Check here to see if WAT is playing on your area (if not, demand it!).

We live in a society in which gratuitous violence is the trademark of video games, movies, and popular music. Kill this, shoot that in repugnant detail becomes a race to the visual and spoken bottom. We have gone from Sam Peckinpah’s realistic portrayal of violent death to a gory ritual of metal ripping ... Read More

Romney Is a Misfit for America

Mitt’s back. The former governor of Massachusetts and occasional native son of Michigan has a new persona: Mr. Utah. He’s going to bring Utah conservatism to the whole Republican party and to the country at large. Wholesome, efficient, industrious, faithful. “Utah has a lot to teach the politicians in ... Read More

What the Second Amendment Means Today

The horrifying school massacre in Parkland, Fla., has prompted another national debate about guns. Unfortunately, it seems that these conversations are never terribly constructive — they are too often dominated by screeching extremists on both sides of the aisle and armchair pundits who offer sweeping opinions ...

Fire the FBI Chief

American government is supposed to look and sound like George Washington. What it actually looks and sounds like is Henry Hill from Goodfellas: bad suit, hand out, intoning the eternal mantra: “F*** you, pay me.” American government mostly works by interposition, standing between us, the free people at ...

Black Panther’s Circle of Hype

The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) first infantilizes its audience, then banalizes it, and, finally, controls it through marketing. This commercial strategy, geared toward adolescents of all ages, resembles the Democratic party’s political manipulation of black Americans, targeting that audience through its ... Read More
