  1. I personally struggle to give hard-earned money (when I’m barely scraping by) to the RNC when all they do is waste it, mismanage it, waste it to push out Republican candidates in favor of dems, still following McConnellesque narrative, fail to hire people willing to go the extra mile, and fail to produce results!

    1. Why on earth would anyone contribute to the RNC (or the DNC)??? You just wasted your $$ when you could have put it to better use. Nothing gets any better by contributing to those political orgs. – or any political org., for that matter.

  2. David H Schulman

    I love David, BUT, the “republicans” have been around since Abe (a rigged election to make war inevitable) CANNOT BE CONSIDERED INCOMPETENT. What they did to lose the elections on Tuesday was ON PURPOSE.
    Start your analysis there, otherwise it’s moot.
    The voting is rigged. That’s why conservative voters stayed home. That and Ronna Romney is an obvious democrat, so reflects a party dedicated to liberal issues or more effectively deliberate abdication to the commies running things for the fascist oligarch gold hoarders and cannonball manufacturers.
    The movement is DONALD, and that’s it. The American people either only have faith in DONALD, or are in a coma. They see criminals working actively and passively to enable the nastiest criminals in history to foment murder, drug abuse, prostitution, and war for starters, both elected, in media, and “Wall Street”.
    Any other explanation fails to reveal what’s going on, also enables the thugs. Of course, you have to be careful.

  3. Excellent as usual. However, abortion is not the only reason conservatives are and will continue to lose. Every year, public education including our colleges are pumping out Leftist voters by design. If we cannot address this, then there probably will be no conservative president ever again and conservatism will be confined to some red states.

  4. Talking heads like Victor and Kelly trash Vivek..and I just want to take their words for it because there are just so many hours in a day for this sh*t. But everytime I listen to Ramaswamy he makes so much sense and is so articulate.

    Victor made a sneaky attack against him that he made more money than Haley from China. Well, Sir..his net worth is $800millions vs. Haley $8millions. He made his money from creating companies and drugs while she was broke after her UN job (that was why she quit her job, remember that?) and made $8millions in a short period of time through board seats, defense contracts, and other swampy activities.

    Victor, why can’t you just come out and say you are a Ron supporter?

    For the rest of us, please do your own research and make up your own mind. Don’t let guys like Victor persuade you with one freaking throw away line to color your view of an individual.

    Victor confessed he is NAIVE. I agree. lol

    Trump will be the nominee whether you like it or not.

  5. Dear Dr. Hanson,

    It’s a pleasure to continuously learn from you. I had the opportunity to take three classes from you while a student at Hillsdale about a decade ago. That was such a formative experience in my life that I’m now a history teacher at a BCSI school in Colorado and I live on homestead in the Rocky Mountains in an attempt to bring the agrarian ideal into my life. Your prolific writing and podcasting keeps me perpetually behind, especially when I took a weeklong backcountry fishing trip to the King’s Canyon right there in your neighborhood and it took a lot of self restraint to not try to find your door and knock on it. I wanted to respond to something that you said in this podcast about getting your concealed carry and being a trained and responsible, firearms owner.

    At my school, where I am the head of security, we run an armed staff. We work through the FASTER Colorado program but then also benefit from private trainings from a retired DEA firearms instructor who drills us in room clearing, high intensity scenarios, and works with us in our building so we learn the ins and outs of our particular situation. Although the SigSauer P365 is a most popular firearm, I have found I outperform that platform with the Springfield Armory HellCat Pro, with a HoloSun red dot sight. I highly recommend it, and I highly recommend that withany platform you chose, you attach a red dot sight and train with it, the benefits are tangible. Thank you for all you say, do, and write.

  6. SMH, the only time I’ve disagreed with Victor and team is when you all talk about votes, ESTABLISHMENT NEOCON GOP/RNC IS DEAD… FOX HANNITY REPUBLICANISM IS DEAD, RONNA IS A RELIC OF THAT DEAD SYSTEM (where’s her AI team, her ground game)nobody is giving her money,,only populists candidates will win! Glenn shunned Trump and look what happened, you all still dont get it, with the cheating(dem machine) you need populist candidates and trump to get the grass roots out! that grassroots/bluecollar voter HATES MCCONNELL-GRAHAM-MCARTHY-HALEY-SCOTT FOX etc etc ESTABLISMENT NEOCONS WHO ARE DISCONNECTED AND HATE THEIR VOTER BASE.. we hate BUSHITE REPUBLICANS and wont show up for them…VIVEK you call funny??? HE JUST TOLD YOU what the problem is, and he speaks for millennial/genz and x, like it or not thats the hard facts.. IF the whole gop/rnc got behind TRUMP and spent all that money time and energy building a ground game and registering new voters like SCOTT PRESSLER ROBERT BARNES AND RICH BARIS TOLD(SINCE 2018) YOU WE WOULD HAVE A RED WAVE but no BOOMER REPUPBLICANS AND ESTABISHMENT POLITICIANS FIGHT TRUMP AT EVERY STEP AND LET HIM BE ATTACKED THE SAME….

    1. I am with you Dante 100%. The GOP, and the so-called conservative intellectual and talking head losers tried to look for a S-A-V-I-O-R when his name is spell T-R-U-M-P. Be an adult, swallow your pride and support TRUMP now! And stop undermining him. We see your sneaky attack from miles away.

  7. Hey victor, I don’t think china will join the axis of evil of ww3, for them it is a win win situation. They get to take Taiwan while the world burns, and regarding oil, if Iran wins, regular priced oil, if they lose, Iran becomes democracy and good price of oil. So in my opinion china wants this war, but it wants to be on the sidelines watching. What do you think victor?

  8. The epiphany that I experienced relative to the election results and compounded by the antisemitism across America is the seeming complacency of the majority of voters with the current state of affairs. The lack of the voice of the voters proclaiming this can’t continue was shocking. Truly confounding that the power of the people to deploy change agents was abrogated.

  9. VDH is both brilliant and humble!
    These attributes are probably an oxymoron today more than ever.
    Brilliance alone is in short supply. I love his voice, intonation and lauahter. He had me smiling big throughout his story boasting about his weaponry to his Israeli friend, then BAM! He is so funny and authentic! If my husband and I could meet one person, it would be VDH and Company.

  12. Regarding the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7)

    1. Not an attempt to improve human nature but an explication of God’s moral law to show that men fail in action and attitude to achieve the righteousness that God requires.

    2. “You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly father is perfect.” (Matthew 5:48)

    3. God’s standard for morality is perfection, the nature of his holy character. He judges man based upon his own character and holds mankind to that standard.

    4. Man is unable to achieve God’s standard.
    James 2:10 For whoever keeps the whole law but fails in one point has become accountable for all of it.

    5. Jesus Christ achieves forgiveness and righteousness for men who trust in him as their Lord and Savior.
    Romans 4:23-25 But the words “it was counted to him: were not written for his sake alone, but for ours also. It will be counted to us who believe in him who raised from the dead Jesus our Lord, who was delivered up for our trespasses and raised for out justification.

    6. 2 Corinthians 5:20,21 Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might bcome the rghteousness of God.

    7. John 1:12 But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.

  13. Dr. Hanson,
    Don’t let the Adam Jacobson‘s of the world get you down. Their comments actually reaffirm and verify the truth that you are speaking. That is exactly what Jesus was confronted with and what we can expect if we dare to tell the truth in our unfortunately hostile And corrupt society.
