Mellifluous and Euphonious Ramblings

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Jonah stops to ruminate on the pathway between two menacingly-named locales—Snake River and Death Canyon (no Cliffs of Insanity, though). The topics today: why the mainstreaming of “white” identity is a genuinely awful idea, why being pro-Israel might cause you to get punched at synagogue, how progressives have adopted some of the worst parts of the European right, and much more.

Show Notes:

-How to punch a shark 

-Virginia Dare, and the disappearance of the Roanoke colonists 

-The Omni-Americans by Albert Murray 

-Joseph de Maistre’s feelings on “man” 

-Jerry Falwell Jr.’s, uh, “Fall”

Coalitionally Speaking

A solo Jonah returns, surrounded by cold beverages, to finish up his thoughts from last time about the final day of the RNC. He then moves on to the tactics of political grandstanding, the autocephalous (uh, Google it) nature of the activist left, and the importance of identifying the correct microclimate of the Loch Ness Monster.

Show Notes:

-Yuval’s latest Remnant appearance 

-Tom Cotton, sending mixed messages about America First 

-Harassing diners in Adams Morgan 

-“Vegetable rights and peace!” 

-Is the Loch Ness Monster a swamp-dweller?

It’s Kinda Feudal

While it may be the middle of the week, there’s no law against Jonah recording Ruminant-style (i.e. alone) – at least not yet. He discusses the RNC – and invents the fun tongue-twister, “Ceaușescu-esque,” while doing so – the “Biden is a vessel for radicals” theory, and the economically confused obsession with Jeff Bezos.

Show Notes:

-Kimberly Guilfoyle’s speech is pretty meme-y 

-Jonah’s spat with Erielle Davidson 

-Remnant veteran Jim Pethokoukis talking about why Jeff Bezos is unironically great 

-China’s post-Soviet “Princelings” 

-Milton Friedman explains why you shouldn’t get to take inherited money away from children 

-Jonah on Marx’s antisemitism 

-Why Nations Fail

Back in the Saddle

Jonah makes a triumphant return to the Remnant on this episode, where he finally has a stable enough connection to record after a saga of perambulations around America’s western half. Jonah and Nick - his fearful amanuensis - discuss Alaska, the awkwardness of America’s largest political party holding a Zoom convention, and the potential for two actual crazy people to become elected officials within the GOP.

The Evening Jolt

Remnant Hall-of-Famer Jim Geraghty joins the show with the continually-put-upon David French, who is heroically guest-hosting as Jonah continues to galavant around in the land of [REDACTED]. On COVID, Jim gets to reminisce a little about the early weeks of reporting on the pandemic while also updating us. The guys then move on to the election, the “convention” (if you can call it that), and Best Spanish Language Heist Show of 2020 - a category with shockingly little competition.

-Jim’s Morning Jolt 

-California vs. New York in the pandemic times 

-Alan Grayson is a strange man 

-Why are so many people dying of COVID in Belgium? 

-The treason of epidemiologists
