“Bullying works better in politics and in life than I think it should.” – Bill Kristol
Bill Kristol is the editor of the Weekly Standard, and I sat down with him in his D.C. office to chat about why he isn’t supporting Trump, what will happen to the GOP after the election, and how the media has covered this race. We talk about the alt-right, the true definition of neoconservatism, and lessons from his career in Washington.
Rick Wilson is a Never-Trumper, and now the Campaign Strategist for Evan McMullin’s Presidential bid. I talk with Rick about the opposition research that has come out on Trump and why it didn’t come out during the primaries, what the media has done to the election, and why he believes Evan McMullin has a shot. We also discuss the possibility of a new conversation party that splits with the GOP.
In this episode, I talk with Jack Abramoff about the presidential campaign, what he thinks about the Clinton Foundation, and how to change the power-grabbing culture of Washington. Jack also shares some insights from the lobbying scandal that ended up with him in prison, and how he’s learned and grown from that time in his life.
Grover Norquist thinks it was the IRS that leaked Donald Trump’s 1995 tax return to The New York Times.

Matt Lewis is a college graduate with a political science degree, author, CNN contributor and my colleague at The Daily Caller. In this episode I talk with Matt about career trajectory, his success story, this election cycle, becoming a pundit in political journalism, his struggles to get where he is today, choosing the right career path and of course, politics.
Matt’s book Too Dumb to Fail, was written pre-Trump nomination, and sets the bar for explaining where the Republican party stands. This book hits the nail on the head on the state of the Republican party and of the Conservative Movement.
Roger Stone is a long time advisor of Donald Trump – he is a defender of Trump even though he has no official connection to the campaign any longer. In this interview, we talk about the Trump campaign from beginning to present; how Roy Cohn mentored a young Trump, how Roger advised him early on, and his current campaign operations.
Roger also leads us into an inside look at his decades-long career in political advising, from helping Reagan get on the ballot in New York to working with Nixon post-presidency.
In this episode, I sit down with the former Israeli Ambassador to the United States, Michael Oren.
