212. So Much Winning

Who’s to blame for the great crack up of Obamacare repeal and replace? The importance of leadership. Some thoughts on Clay Kershaw, John McEnroe, a judo challenge, wealthy/powerful women and pretty men, or, vice versa, and Irving Berlin.

211. Russian to Judgment

Bill Browder, the man behind the Magnitsky Act and a tireless campaigner for human rights, joins to discuss the shady characters who met with Trump campaign officials last year. Browder knows them all, but his judgment is measured and cautious. Jay and Mona also discuss whataboutism, the politics of jerseys, and slightly differ on the nature of Trump’s support.

210. The Health of the Nation

Yuval Levin joins Mona and Jay to talk about health care: What to do? More specifically, what to do NOW, at this impasse? Then, Mona and Jay talk about Trump and Mika and Joe. Later, they talk about Hong Kong, China, and Taiwan – and tell some interesting stories. The show ends with Marilyn Horne, singing “You’re a Grand Old Flag” (including the verses – rare!). Ok, we know this is weird to say, but If @jaynordlinger's and @JonahNRO's tweets had a baby, this is what it would look like. https://t.co/8Bnrit9hhF — Ricochet (@Ricochet) June 30, 2017 Subscribe to Need to Know in iTunes (and leave a 5-star review, please!), or by RSS feed.

205. Was Gorsuch Worth All This?

It’s been a terrible week for Trump – which means a terrible week for those who love this country. Jay and Mona consider the implications of the Russia probe, Flynn’s conduct, the Comey business, and the president’s leaked comments to the Russians about Comey. What a world. The podcast ends with some happy musings about music, and a note of hope, if not exactly optimism, from Jay. Music is Scheherazade by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. Third movement.

204. Should We Be Nationalists?

Daniel Krauthammer joins Need to Know to talk of the divide on the right over nationalism versus patriotism. Is nationalism a good impulse or not? He also offers views on the Comey firing. Jay and Mona then speak of the French elections, immigration, the unfilled jobs in the Trump Administration, how to boost the economy, Prince Phillip’s retirement, uniforms (school and otherwise), and the great Kate O’Beirne – RIP.

The Atlantic’s David Frum joins NTK to evaluate Trump’s first nearly 100 days. Mona plays Devil’s advocate with Frum, a Trump critic – at least for a while.
