Media Alert: Bennett Show Tomorrow

Featured image So I’m scheduled to be on Bill Bennett’s “Morning in America” show tomorrow at 7:05 eastern time to talk about the IPCC climate report, but probably a lot of other things, including the government shutdown, my time here as an inmate at the University of Colorado, football, who knows?  Do tune in–and call in–if you can!  If the show isn’t on your local radio, you can tune in online. »

Rocky Mountain Meet Up Notes

Featured image About 30 people turned out for the impromptu Power Line “Take Back Boulder” Rocky Mountain Meet Up yesterday at the Bohemian Biergarten in downtown Boulder.  Don Brookins, the creator of the “Doorbell” entry from the Power Line Prize Competition two years ago, was there, along with a lot of other folks who came in some cases from a considerable distance.  Orson Olson risked injury to his person by defiantly wearing »

Time for a Power Line Rocky Mountain Meetup

Featured image So it turns out that there are a lot of clandestine Power Line readers in the Boulder area. I’ve been hearing from a lot of you. Classes start next week and I’m in the throes of massive preparation, plus having a ton of paperwork to do as usual with any state bureaucracy.  By the way, did you know that all incoming faculty at the University of Colorado, since they are »

Up and Running Again

Featured image Power Line was down for a time earlier today, as some gremlins crept into the interwebs somewhere.  But not to fear, Power Line’s awesome tech support division spring into action, and we’re back up and running full speed.  So why not have our own meme for this? »

Gone listening

Featured image This evening we are off to Amsterdam to join the NR cruise of the Norwegian fjords with NR’s team of all-star speakers. The cruise departs from Amsterdam on August 1. We’ll be looking around town in the meantime. Included among the advertised speakers on the NR cruise are some of my favorite writers. I’m thinking of the pseudonymous Theodore Dalrypmple, traveling under his given name of Anthony Daniels, NR’s own »

Media Alert: Kudlow Report Tonight

Featured image My blogging silence today is explained by my attendance at the Breakthrough Institute‘s annual conference, this year on the subject of “Creative Destruction.”  It’s mostly liberals in attendance–some of them fairly prominent–but there are some Power Line readers here, including one of Paul’s acquaintances, McKie Campbell, who was Republican staff director for the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee.  Good to have some friendly faces here.  I’ll try to give »

Media Alert: Radio Day Tomorrow

Featured image Another travel day for me, so I’ll be out of touch until late this evening.  But I’ll be turning up tomorrow morning on Bill Bennett’s “Morning in America” radio show as a guest at 8:05 am eastern (subject to change as always), to talk about the latest climate change and energy news.  Tune in if you can, or listen online at BillBennett.com. »

A note on comments

Featured image We get occasional email messages complaining about our comments setup and its occasional glitches. I find it hard to respond to all these messages, mostly because I don’t know what’s going on or don’t care for the indignation that sometimes accompanies the complaints. Here is what I would like you to know, courtesy of Power Line publisher Joe Malchow: Power Line uses Facebook for our commenting system. This means that »

West Coast Retreat

Featured image I’ll be at the David Horowitz Freedom Center West Coast Retreat in Palos Verdes this weekend. They call it a retreat, but I think of it as group therapy. The retreat features an unbelievable lineup of speakers including Senators Jeff Sessions and Ron Johnson, Rep. Michele Bachmann, Victor Davis Hanson, Andy McCarthy, Bill Whittle, Bill Voegeli and Ben Stein, among others. The retreat kicks off with dinner on Friday and »

Tonight on FNC: Boomtown

Featured image Our friend Peter Schweizer writes to alert us that he is narrating a one-hour Hannity special airing tonight called “Boomtown” on the Fox News Channel at 9:00 pm EST.  The show promises to provide a look at how cronyism has made a lot of people rich in Washington, D.C.  A preview clip is posted here. And there’s a nice notice in the New York Times Friday listings: In this edition »

Media Alert: Bill Bennett Show Tomorrow Morning

Featured image I’ll be guest-hosting Bill Bennett’s Morning in America radio show tomorrow (Thursday). My on-air guests will include Jean Yarbrough, author of a fine book we’ve mentioned here before, Theodore Roosevelt and the American Political Tradition; Paul Reid, co-author of the third and final volume of The Last Lion biography of Winston Churchill; and Ed Pinto of the American Enterprise Institute, who will be coming out first thing Thursday morning with a frightening new study about »

Media Alert: Bill Bennett Show Tomorrow Morning

Featured image I’ll be an in-studio guest with Bill Bennett on Morning in America tomorrow during the 8 am (eastern) hour of the show.  Not sure what we’ll be talking about, but listen in and call in if you can. Here’s a pic from one of my turns as guest host a few months back: »

And Now for Something Completely Different, and Media Alert!

Featured image Travel week for me, first to Ashland University on Monday, where I’ve taken up my new appointment as the Thomas Smith Fellow at the Ashbrook Center (don’t miss the Ashbrook Center’s spiffy redesigned website), and where I’m teaching an upper division course again this fall, this time on “American Political Economy.”  Like last fall’s course on Hayek and political economy, I’ll post some nuggets from class from time to time, »

We Built This!

Featured image Just kidding. Power Line wouldn’t exist without the Government Internet upon which it is transmitted and the Government Roads we drive on to buy our Government MacBooks and consequently our true and deepest thanks belong to the Public Servants who moved upon the waters to create this amazing American system of spontaneous centralized capital bestowal. But we’re nevertheless grateful also to you, our readers. We haven’t boasted much, but more »

Media Alert: Show Notes for Tomorrow

Featured image Enjoyed a rip-roaring three hours behind the microphone this morning subbing for Bill Bennett on his “Morning in America” radio show, with wide-ranging and provocative conversations with James Bowman, Michael Anton, and Arthur Brooks.  We beat down pretty hard on Brain Ross, Obama’s “you didn’t build that” comment, and Hollywood.  I know–low-hanging fruit. I’m back behind the microphone tomorrow morning from 6 to 9 am, with guests James Pethokoukis, my »

Open Thread Friday at Power Line!

Featured image Ever since we launched the latest version of Power Line, we’ve been extremely pleased to see a bustling community of readers filling our pages with comments and debate. We also are aware of a certain degree of, ahem, trolling going on–but we’ve decided that the specter of our witty readers going to battle against trolls resembled something like Thermopylae, with the result that we’ve allowed you to go about your »
