Ricochet Editor-in-Chief Jon Gabriel appeared on "Tipping Point with Liz Wheeler" to discuss Sarah Palin's lawsuit against the New York Times. The paper implied that she was to blame for the Rep. Giffords shooting, despite the fact this claim was thoroughly debunked -- even by the New York Times.
Jon Gabriel (@ExJon) and Stephen Miller (aka @RedSteeze) welcome Tom Shillue to discuss his new book, Mean Dads for a Better America: The Generous Rewards of an Old-Fashioned Childhood. Tom is a Fox News contributor and hosted the late, great “Red Eye.” He’s also a popular stand-up comedian, tours with Jim Gaffigan, and regularly sings on Jimmy Fallon, barbershop quartet-style. Jon and Steve also discuss the big freedom-of-speech win in SCOTUS for synth-pop band The Slants, and the utter lameness of shouting down Shakespeare.
The intro song is “Fight Back” by The Slants. Jon’s song of the week is “Ghost Stories” by Dave Catching & Secret Secrets, and Stephen’s is “Third of May / Ōdaigahara” by Fleet Foxes.

On this weekend's "Sunday Square Off," the roundtable of Catherine Alonzo, chief executive officer of Javelina, marketing & political consulting firm; Jon Gabriel, editor-in-chief of Ricochet.com and co-host of "The Conservatarians" podcast; and political analyst Chris Herstam discuss:
Following the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise and others at the GOP congressional baseball practice, VA Gov. Terry McAuliffe promoted further gun control laws. Jon Gabriel and Liz Wheeler discuss whether his proposals would help prevent another such crime.
Another busy week with much to talk about and to help out we’ve got (along with @jongabriel sitting in for Rob Long) the great Yuval Levin and Adam Carolla. Yuval schools us on the rumors that the President will fire Robert Mueller and the black box that is the Congressional Budget Office, and Adam stops by to talk about his upcoming film the Dennis Prager (they’re raising money to underwrite it — donate here). Also, 30 years ago this week, Peter Robinson jotted down a few words for Ronald Reagan. We get some of the backstory in this very podcast. You don’t want to miss that. LISTEN HERE.
Stephen Miller (aka @RedSteeze) bought a ticket to Wonder Woman and the internet lost its collective mind. Alamo Drafthouse intended the viewing to be women-only … until Stephen decided to join them. The Conservatarians co-host returns from vacation to talk about his trip to the movies, the international media coverage it garnered, and the people on the right and left who tried to co-opt it.
Jon’s song of the week is “Lawman” by Girl Band, and Stephen’s is “Apocalypse” by Cigarettes After Sex. To listen to all the music featured on The Conservatarians, subscribe to our Spotify playlist. You also should subscribe to this podcast and give it five-star, glowing reviews on iTunes!
