11.2 #HausRules – The Election. And HausGuests David Shestokas and Debra Saunders!

Two GREAT HausGuest segments today – listen to the entire show here: Listen to “#HausRules – 11.2.16” on Spreaker.

Constitutional Sound Bites – David Shestokas

Once again, current events impeded our walk through Constitutional Sound Bites. This time it was over the FBI/DOJ/White House authority and actions surrounding Hillary’s email and the renewed investigation. Bottom line: the President is the top law enforcement official in the land and BOTH departments operate under his leadership and responsibility.

Likely explanation for Obama’s “support” of Comey: He does NOT want an independent investigator involved. Previous HausGuest and Federalist co-founder Sean Davis wrote about this; David and I discussed it:screen-shot-2016-11-02-at-11-50-26-am

We did get around to the Constitution and discussed how Presidential authority can be limited (and was tested when Truman’s takeover of the steel industry was ruled unconstitutional). Listen to the isolated segment with David here:Listen to “Constitutional Sound Bites” on Spreaker.

HausGuest – Debra Saunders

Debra is NOT a fan of either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. She just penned an op/ed explaining why she cast her California vote for Gary Johnson (despite several significant weaknesses). Bottom line: as not-great as he is, she’d FAR prefer him to either Cheeto Don or Mrs. William Jefferson CronyDealing Clinton. It’s a GREAT read:screen-shot-2016-11-02-at-11-57-42-am

We also discussed her recent article about a handful of California cities that are in the process of taxing streaming services, like Netflix and Amazon Prime, as utilities:screen-shot-2016-11-02-at-12-00-32-pm

She is SUCH a great guest (follow her on Twitter here) and has so much to say, I offered to give her a dedicated HausGuest segment 3 times a week. Her super-pricey counter offer is under consideration and will necessitate a bond offering on Wall Street (worth every penny!) early next year.
