A day late and a weeeeee bit drunk, but hey we’re here! Weekend project was to create an isolation box for my mic, so we’ll see how that sounds.
On to the good stuff. We hit a range of stuff including the controversy around the firing of Roseanne, the literal actual stacks of cash involved in the resignation of Missouri Governor Greitens, the most recent Supreme Court decisions, OMGTHECHILDRENZZZZ at the border, the latest in gaming news, and our recommendations on podcasts. And you just know we wander far afield of even that diversified set of topics.
Hey folks, late post due to all the crap that’s explained in the first couple minutes.
This week, Alex and I talk about Trump. Trump and Russia. Trump and Tweets. Trump and MS-13. We were fairly Trump centric.
We touched on the shooting in Santa Fe and a related topic that is important to Alex and I. Important enough that we’re gonna kick it down the road just a bit until we can devote the proper amount of time to it.
A listener asked about books on law/legal theory for folks who have NOT been through law school. So we complied with a list of recommendations. Here you go:
This week covers a decent bit of legal stuff. And some just plain bizarre stuff. Like Stormy Daniels’ lawyer’s conspiracy weirdness. And the fact that he’s likely to be disbarred soon over MASSIVE tax evasion.
We spend a good chunk of the pod going through several of the SCOTUS cases handed down today that deal with states rights, 4th amendment privacy and seizure rights, 6th amendment (of all things) and how it applies to the relationship between counsel and client, and wiretapping. We also get into the absolute hit job that was successfully executed via the legal system on Missouri Gov Greitens.
So after a week off due to crappy internet on my part, we’re back and rolling this week. And ohhhhh all the stupid people.
We talk about John “Logan Act” Kerry, Bob Mueller, the breaking news regarding NY AG Eric Schneiderman, the Alphabet/gay rights insanity (yup, Alex went there), David French’s post at NRO about Trump and Evangelicals, and of course we wander about as always.
So this week on Drift Compatible we have not one but two guests. We welcome back our previous guest and good buddy, host of WATR’s Talk of the Town out of Waterbury, Conn…..Steve Noxon.
We have a second guest that Steve was kind enough to put us in touch with. You may have guessed, but that guest is KURT SCHLICHTER. Yes. That one.
We spend a good bit of time just chatting like normal before getting in the meatier topic of the 1500 person caravan/invasion currently coming up through Mexico. Kurt has been in Desert Storm, Kosovo, and the LA Riots, so I really wanted to hear what he had to say about the National Guard being sent to the Southern Border. What would that look like? What would the responsibilities of the Guard units? If the situation on the ground changed, would the Guard units step up to act as more than “in an advisory capacity”?
We spent some time talking freedom and liberal power and what the various end goals actually are.
After a good long talk with Kurt, he had to go take care of other commitments, but Alex, Steve, and I continued on. With discussions on Kennedys, the KW debacle, the relationship between….let’s call them professional class and working class Republicans and Conservatives. And that’s really just the start. Our discussions were far ranging and highly intelligent.
One of those is likely true.
At the very end we briefly discussed some entertainment stuff…
Which you’ll have to listen and find yourself since I can’t seem to have any luck finding the appropriate links.
Anywho, here you go folks, another episode of Drift Compatible, this time with KURT SCHLICHTER.
Back at it again. This episode is actually a bit shorter than usual. Only 90 minutes instead of the normal 2+ hours. It’s the culmination of Alex’ High Holy Days, after all.
This week Alex and I touch again on the topic of….issues….within our judicial system. First looking at the story of a Chicago man wrongfully convicted of rape and murder 26 years ago and then moving on to a brief discussion of the not guilty verdict for the wife of the man who shot up the Pulse nightclub. We also somehow made it from institutional problems in our judicial system allllll the way over to race relations and identity politics. How? You’ll have to listen to find out.
Then on to the screeching and yelling and flailing and cursing about Civil Asset Forfeiture, the DEA specifically, and the DOJ more broadly.
Come on now, you didn’t think we were gonna make it three weeks in a row, now did you?
Because we’re not.
And I hope whoever gave me this awesome stomach bug, well, a thousand years in the belly of a Sarlacc should make us about even.
So there’s no Drift Compatible this week. But I do have something for you. A new show I’m involved in. The Contrarians. Every Sunday evening at 8pmEST will be a live show with me, Andrea Ruth, Kyle Foley, and Jordan Ecarma. Our first episode was last night.
