Dinesh D’Souza on Radio Row at the DNC

Dinesh D’Souza made a film about Barack Obama in 2012 that rankled top Democrats and likely contributed to his prosecution for a minor campaign finance law violation. His new film Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party is unlikely to enhance his reputation among Democrats. D’Souza joined us...

Thank you, Cleveland.

Little things can often leave a big impression. Arriving at the airport on my way out of Cleveland – laden with four equipment cases in addition to my suitcase – the rent car shuttle dropped us off at the terminal entrance. There waiting were Republican convention host committee volunteers with...

No soaring platitudes in this acceptance speech.

Ann Coulter reacts to Ted Cruz’s Weds. night speech at the RNC.

She is outspoken, funny, articulate and either loved or loathed depending on one’s leanings. Ann Coulter is a prolific author, columnist and contributor to the FOX News Channel. When we saw her here on Radio Row, we couldn’t wait to get her take on Ted Cruz’s Wednesday prime-time speech at...

Bill Clinton George Stephanopoulos has said, “Over the course of the first nine months of 1995, no single person had more power over the president.” He was speaking about Dick Morris. Today, Morris is an outspoken critic of Hillary Clinton. He joined us on Radio Row...

A most unlikely event.

Last June, the political and pundit class was busy dismissing the just-announced Republican presidential candidacy of Donald Trump. Some said it was a stunt. Some said it was to advance his reality TV career. Few took it seriously. Then all summer and into the fall leading up to primary season,...

Texas Congressman Blake Farenthold on the “Never Trumpers.”

The step-grandson of Texas Democratic icon Sissy Farenthold, Blake Farenthold was swept into office in 2010 in the Republican wave that gave the House back to the GOP. Farenthold won the seat by 799 votes from a long-time Democratic incumbent. He joins us on Radio Row to talk about Donald...
