Obviously, I began with the most important story of the day: Director Michael Bay shamed the perfect Kate Beckinsale 15 years ago during the filming of Pearl Harbor. I’m furious.
After that, the show was EXCEPTIONAL.
Listen to all of it here:
Constitutional Sound Bite with David Shestokas
TONS of important and interesting information with today’s great segment:
David and I talked about why the Constitution specifies different terms of office for the House, Senate, Presidency, and the Supreme Court. That led to a side discussion about the 17th Amendment (which changed the election of Senators from state legislatures to the citizenry), the lifetime appointment for SCOTUS justices (David is NOT a fan), and the current discussion over Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland and the Senate’s refusal to consider it (David says they’re merely advising and consenting, as the Constitution allows).
We also discussed the difference between the concepts of “Separation of Powers” and “Checks and Balances” within the Constitution.
My opinion: it was the most interesting and engaging Constitutional Sound Bite yet!
HausGuest – Virginia Kruta
Virginia is one of the rockstars at Independent Journal Review and we BARELY scratched the surface of her last 48 hours of published articles.
After a quick discussion about HarambeGate (she’s got 6 kids!), we talked about the service record debacle over Chris Kyle’s medals – and Rick Perry’s GREAT response to it:
We also talked about two VERY moving articles she published over the Memorial Day weekend.
The first was from various small-town celebrations:
The second was about how military veterans and their families remember those who have paid the ultimate price for our freedoms. Warning: some of these pictures are EXTREMELY moving:
It was a GREAT segment and I told her RIGHT after the show: please be prepared to come back soon!
- Cincinnati police are now investigating the family involved in the Harambe The Gorilla incident
- David French may be Bill Kristol’s much-discussed independent candidate to challenge Trump & H-Rod
- InJo just published my
incredibly sarcasticopen letter asking Americans to send money to help illegal alien students at the University of California pay for their tuition and legal needs
Thank you for reading and listening!
