We’re still working up our agenda, but look forward to taking some of your questions and comments, and we’ve already got a couple of good ones sent in ahead of time. Meanwhile, here’s Lucretia at the range, getting in »

Live Podcast Tomorrow!

Featured image I’m a little late getting this notice up, but tomorrow (Friday) afternoon the great “Lucretia” and I will be taping our weekly Three Whisky Happy Hour podcast live on Zoom at 5:30 pm Pacific (8:30 pm Eastern; I have no idea what time this is in Australia—or even what day), open to all comers. I’ll post the Zoom link here middle of the afternoon tomorrow. We’re still putting together our »

A note to commenters

Featured image I moderate comments for Power Line and have posted several notes to commenters including those here (2020) and here (2019). They enumerate the guidelines and considerations that I apply in deleting comments and banning commenters. I also wrote the notice to commenters in the sidebar of our site and I strictly enforce it as stated. Our software withholds some comments for review and that is where I review them. Assuming »

Angelo Codevilla, RIP

Featured image Terrible news out this morning of the death of Angelo Codevilla, at age 78, reportedly in a car accident. It is hard to overstate the importance and brilliance of Angelo. If you only knew him by his many books and columns (including this 2015 piece he wrote for Power Line on Trump’s significance and prospects), it would be sufficient to establish his greatness. But he was also at the storm »

Feddie Night Fights, FedSoc Style

Featured image Forget Friday Night Lights. How about Feddie Night Fights—Federalist Society style? Two weeks from now, on Wednesday June 30 at 8 pm eastern time, I’ll be refereeing a Federalist Society student division online webinar on the issue of whether the Declaration of Independence should inform judicial interpretation of the Constitution. This is a live issue on the right, and I’ve written an outline of the two sides of this issue, »

19 years: 19 thoughts

Featured image I think I accumulated my first 10 thoughts for our tenth anniversary online. I hope I’ll have one big one or 20 new ones in honor of our twentieth anniversary next year, but in the meantime I’m going to borrow from previous editions to note the occasion today. It was 19 years ago this weekend — 19 years ago today, I think, but maybe tomorrow — that John Hinderaker went »

VIP Live Podcast Taping Friday

Featured image This Friday at 5 pm Pacific time (8 pm Eastern), we’ll be doing a live taping of the Three Whisky Happy Hour podcast for our VIP members via Zoom, with me and “Lucretia” talking about what’s up with equality under the law. In addition to some planned topics, we’ll be taking live audience questions. (Where we take them is another question. . .) Specifically, I sent to Lucretia the New »

Announcement: Live Podcast Saturday

Featured image This Saturday, “Lucretia” and I are going to record our weekly Three Whisky Happy Hour in a live Zoom session open to all comers—not just VIP members. The event will go off at 4 pm Pacific time/7 pm Eastern time—which happens to coincide with happy hour just about everywhere except for our Australian listeners, except in my experience most Australians don’t need a later afternoon neon-advertised “happy hour” sign to »

Consider a Tip to Go With a Hat Tip to Dave Deeble

Featured image With Ammo Grrll, David Deeble is Power Line’s other unofficial comedian, and you can follow his daily quips on Twitter, his longer form humor articles on Ricochet and his own website, and you can find lots of him on his YouTube channel. (My favorite and very topical 10-second joke at the clip below.) Pretty sure he contributes to the Babylon Bee from time to time, too. Today he offers “Americans »

Announcement: Can the Liberal Arts Be Saved?

Featured image One of the problems with the liberal arts in college today is that they are dominated by liberals! Does that explain why majors in the liberal arts have been declining rapidly over the last two decades, or is that a function of the high cost of college these days? For readers who have time on their hands at 2 pm eastern time tomorrow (February 11), I’ll be hosting an online »

Missing thoughts from the ammo line

Featured image As a result of failure to communicate on my part, Ammo Grrrll’s weekly column will not be posted as scheduled this morning. I apologize to Ammo Grrrll and her faithful readers. The fault is mine. I hope to figure out some way to make up for it with Ms. Grrrll in due course. You need a laugh. You deserve a laugh. We count on the laugh regularly scheduled for this »

Live VIP Three Whisky Podcast Taping Tomorrow

Featured image All right, by what should perhaps be described as “unpopular” demand, we’re arranging a last-minute VIP webcast tomorrow afternoon at 6 pm Eastern (3 pm Pacific), with a twist: It will be a modified form of the Three Whisky Happy Hour podcast taping, in which I’ve invited Charles Lipson of the University of Chicago to team up with me. (His latest article on the state of things is in The »

Reminder: Live Three Whisky Happy Hour Today

Featured image For those of you sleeping off your Thanksgiving dinner coma, a reminder that this afternoon at 4 pm (Pacific)/7pm (Eastern), “Lucretia” and I will be hosting a live taping of the Three Whisky Happy Hour podcast via Zoom. We’ll be covering the highlights of the week, as well as taking audience questions. We’re making this event open to all Power Line readers as a bit of an experiment. Our Zoom »

A note to commenters

Featured image I last posted “A note to commenters” a year ago. I moderate comments with the assistance of our software. I wrote the rules. I enforce the rules that I wrote to the best of my ability under the circumstances. If you comment here and are unfamiliar with the law as I have laid it down, please check out my 2019 note. I want to emphasize one point. If you employ »
