Join us as we welcome:

  • Duane “Generalissimo” Patterson brings us up to date on the week’s top stories and gives us a preview of tomorrow’s Hugh Hewitt show. We’ll take a look at the meltdown at Newsweek, plus the impact of tax reform on 2018 polling now and in the future, and more!
  • Jazz Shaw joins us to discuss the HHS move to add a religious-freedom division, as well as new congressional legislation revamping the sexual harassment process on Capitol Hill.
  • NRO and Weekly Standard contributor Jay Cost returns to give us a preview of his upcoming book The Price of Greatness, a new look at the tension between Alexander Hamilton and James Madison and what it meant for American governance.
