Today’s was a great week-ending show – due primarily to both HausGuests!
Listen to today’s entire show here: Listen to “#HausRules – 1.6.17” on Spreaker.
Ask the Counselor – Dan Chambers
Dan and I talked about two big cases:
Dylan Roof is defending himself during the sentencing phase of the trial and made a VERY interesting argument:
Alabama’s Supreme Court is allowing to proceed a wrongful death claim on an previable fetus:
Almost ALL of these segments yield a similar conclusion: I regret NOT going to law school.
HausGuest – Bruce Klingner
This was Bruce’s first return HausGuest visit and set a record for Godfather references (four!), something MUCH appreciated and vaulted him into the top tier of guests.
Here’s a summary of Bruce’s bio from The Heritage Foundation’s website:
Bruce Klingner specializes in Korean and Japanese affairs as the senior research fellow for Northeast Asia at The Heritage Foundation’s Asian Studies Center. Klingner’s analysis and writing about North Korea, South Korea and Japan, as well as related issues, are informed by his 20 years of service at the Central Intelligence Agency and the Defense Intelligence Agency.
From 1996 to 2001, Klingner was CIA’s deputy division chief for Korea, responsible for the analysis of political, military, economic and leadership issues for the president of the United States and other senior U.S. policymakers. In 1993-1994, he was the chief of CIA’s Korea branch, which analyzed military developments during a nuclear crisis with North Korea.
We primarily talked about developments in North Korea and the clash in visions between the approach by the Obama Administration and those anticipated in the upcoming Trump Administration.
We also mentioned South Korea a bit and he recently wrote about the impact of the impeachment of the country’s President:
- As Megyn leaves Fox, Tucker is going to take over her spot and Gretchen Carlson is going to take over his. Also, Greta is going to start at MSNBC.
- This killed me and it is SPOT on:
- Rand Paul is RIGHTLY pissed about the GOP spending plan. It’s not EVER going to balance the budget:
