Hamas, the Left, and our DHS

Join Victor Davis Hanson and cohost Sami Winc for this Friday news roundup: the Hamas spokesman says “again and again,” Mayorkas can’t answer questions about anti-Semites in his midst, a second front for Iran, Mike Johnson’s early days, and tracing the Biden’ laundered money.

  1. I have figured it out! Why do I like VDH, besides insane intelligence and, more importantly, the ability to reduce extremely complex issues into understandable English. But the truth is: its his voice, his accent. From Kingsburg, I’m from Exeter so he sounds like people I grew up with, dated (including a guy from Kingsburg.). It’s comforting to hear common sense spoken in an accent I am familiar with.

    1. Does “common sense” require a common set of beliefs?

      Do you tell a 5 year old to use “common sense”?

      If common sense needs to be taught, then where do they come from?

      Church? – have you been to a church lately?
      Popular culture? – Leftist control
      Entertainment? – Leftist control
      School? – Leftist control

      So whose common sense are you referring to?

      1. Shared beliefs that are taught is one factor affecting common sense.

        Another factor is having an innate sense of morality, reasoning and conscience that God instills in the human heart.

        Romans 2: 14-16 For when Gentiles, who do not have the law, by nature do what the law requires, they are a law to thenselves, even though they do not have the law. They show that the work of the law is written on their hearts, while their conscience also bears witness, and their conflicting thoughts accuse or even excuse them on the day when, according to my gospel, God judges the secrets of men by Christ Jesus.

        1. Here is a random video I just watched. Let this sink in.
          The Chinese Communist Party’s (ccp) goal is to corrupt people’s morality. Only when people’s hearts are corrupted and there are no moral boundary standards, will they accept anything the ccp does no matter how heinous. 

          You think only the ccp can do that to its people? Think again. 

          1. Bad company ruins good morals. 1 Corinthians 15:33

            For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ, 1 Corinthians 10:3-5

            Agreed, secular ideology and humanistic thinking is persuasive. It is a constant battle to align our thoughts and lives to God’s will. Men need to be drawn back to the Bible to calibrate their morality, reasoning and conscience to the standards of God and his will for man.

  2. Regarding Impeaching Joe Biden –

    1. Bribery is an impeachable offense

    2. If guilty then the law needs to be honored by acting on it and enforcing it

    3. Confidence in the legal system is bolstered when the law is followed

    4. Conviction and sentencing deters crime

    5. The replacement president will be no worse than Biden because the same personnel will continue to run the government

  3. We don’t have to find the 8 million illegal aliens if we nationalize and ENFORCE E-Verify. They will deport themselves when they can’t work. End of Problem. No violence involved.

  4. OK, as a black man in the middle class, yes I want to make that known because we vote overwhelmingly Democrat, I am a truck driver who sees the entire country and the majority of people I deal with are white. Yet every single person I have dealt with, with the exception of a white liberal in the Florida Keys, are honest hard working people. I remember one teacher in high school because of the way he taught history. I honestly thought combining ancient history with this podcast would be a disaster. I was completely wrong. As a student of history, you are always able to put a slant on it that makes me say , I didn’t know that, or I didn’t see it from that perspective. my only gripe is I need more content!!!! More from you, Thomas Sowell, more sir.

  5. You say that if the Republicans can ever get their act together and take the House and Senate and Presidency, they can do a lot. But even if their act is perfect, how do they overcome election rigging? Must they make sure that mail-in ballots that should be rejected are rejected? Make sure video cameras are functional at all drop off box locations? How do you prevent a truckload of fraudulent ballots being dumped at polling places at 3 a.m.? How do you ensure the integrity of vote counting machines if they can’t be audited? In other words, how should Republicans “just get their act together,” with respect to ensuring election integrity? (BTW, the “c” in scintilla is silent – https://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/pronunciation/english/scintilla)

  6. Must be something about being a farm boy that gives you your perspective. I am just finishing up harvest in the Midwest. Been watching and listening to you for a long time. Your explanation for everything is like listening to everything that goes through my head every day. You are much better putting your thoughts down on paper then I am. Keep up the good work. Hope to meet you some day.

  7. I’m following Prof Victor DH since 2020, a treasure.
    Thank you!!
    By chance are you coming to Florida anytime soon for a public presentation. I’d like to know Professor David Hanson in person.

  8. Refreshing to hear the normal sober and judicious Professor Hanson add some humor to the podcast. As they say every good joke has some truth in it and Newsome is definitely an “idiot like Trudeau”.

    As for impeaching Biden, it would be fantastic to get a conviction in the Senate but only with a month or two left in this term. That would force the democrats to put Harris up as the incumbent or even make her a lame duck after the primary loss she would face should Biden say he was not running. Either would put the left in a bind knowing Harris is not up to the task. We can finally do away with the democrats virtual signalling for the first woman, and woman of color president.

    Knowing the Senate will not convict, it would be smart for the House to impeach him with a couple months left before November. Having his crimes put on full display would work against Biden should he run. Convicted or not it will all be political theater until we get an honest law abiding DOJ in place to prosecute those on the left for real crimes!

  9. Professor Hanson, you’re correct in pointing out the Republicans are failing to plan for the possibility of Trump being incarcerated in 2024.
    But you are similarly failing to plan for the possibility that Joe Biden is alive and re-elected in 2024. Have you considered that possibility?

  10. The Gaza people used to be ‘bedouins’ ; after 60+ years of ‘greening of the desert’ by the Jews, to say nothing of the Iron Dome and much industrial success, the gazaens just want the neighbours’
    stuff. Straight out of greed rules …… Muslims’ historical style of takeover and marxist theory.
    In other words, laziness and envy will get you anywhere ……. time to get serious with these bozos!
