State of the Union

Listen to Victor Davis Hanson and cohost Jack Fowler talk about the many lies, boasts, and fallout from Biden’s speech: debt deception, SCOTUS criticism, US-Gaza policy, Laken Riley offense, RFK Jr.’s reaction, and the open border as a deliberate policy. Don’t miss the Petain legacy and the battle of Dien Bien Phu in concluding comments.

  1. Victor,

    Were you meaning to say Khe Sanh, not Da Nang?


    March 9th is also the birthday of chess genius and fellow New Yorker Bobby Fischer.

    He was a controversial figure given his documented anti-Semitism and anti-Americanism. But everyone in the chess world (I’m a mediocre player) remembers how he crushed his candidate’s match opponents in back to back shutouts, which had never been seen before, and then went on to beat Boris Spassky at Reykjavik to become the first, and so far only, American world chess champion.

    Instead of being hailed a national hero who single handily defeated the Soviet chess machine and ended their 30 year chess hegemony, he died in relative obscurity in Iceland.

    Victor, do you think Fischer is an example of what the Greek’s called hamartia, or the tragically flawed hero?

    VDH –
    I found your stories regarding your encounters with the illegal aliens on your property in Fresno Valley to be quite moving. You have a way of relaying details in such a way as to invoke a visceral response from me. I’m at an age when I find it so sad when I reflect on the state of our great country today as compared to when I was a child and my parents’ generation.
    Keep up the good work.

    Joe Biden’s eight million dollars advance payment for his book works out to be approximately one thousand dollars per book. Reports indicate the book never made it to “best seller” category and sold less than 10,000 books. That sort of advance is as rare as rocking horse doo doo.

    Great segue into the commercial. You guys just get done talking about how expensive food is under Bidenomics, and now, a word from our sponsor, Solair Infrared Grills! Dream about grilling the food you can no longer afford!


    Once again, we who listen and comment via The Blade of Perseus are the red-headed stepchildren. Do we ever get quoted? Is there some kind of secret contract with Apple, or something? Some kind of remuneration for every iTunes comment read? Or are we to Jack and Professor Hanson what Steelers fans are to Hugh Hewitt? Just there for occasional comic relief or derision.
