On Wednesday, April 11th, both Andy Schmookler and I, Joshua Huffman, made our monthly appearance on 550 AM, WSVA. We started off discussing the recent announcement of the retirement of Speaker of the House Paul Ryan. From there, we moved to the recent hostilities in Syria and possible U.S. reactions. Lastly, we briefly touched on the ongoing Mueller investigation of President Donald Trump.
On Wednesday of this week, Andy Schmookler and I had our 56th hour on 550 AM, WSVA. The discussion this month focused on Donald Trump, including his congratulatory phone call to Vladimir Putin for winning re-election as President of Russia, his actions with Stormy Daniels (and perhaps others related individuals) and the growing political divide between pro-Trump and anti-Trump activists which is making political dialogue increasingly difficult.

In the past, we have been told that the subjects of guns and abortion are off limits for discussion. Therefore, I was caught off guard when, before going on the air today, we were informed that we would be starting off the show talking about firearms and the 2nd Amendment due to the recent school shootings in Florida.
Although that issue took up most of the time in the show, we also spoke briefly about the situation in the Middle East including the corruption charges against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the potential for greater conflict in an almost constantly volatile region. Last, was the issue of Mitt Romney’s run for the U.S. Senate representing the state of Utah and whether or not he would stand up to Donald Trump if Romney were elected.
Earlier this morning, Andy Schmookler and I appeared for the 54th time on 550 AM, WSVA. The topics of the day include the looming potential government shutdown, the race to replace Bob Goodlatte in the 6th district of Virginia, and more.
Yesterday morning, Andy Schmookler and I took to the air on WSVA, 550 AM for our 53rd monthly installment to discuss local, state, and national politics. A central focus was the U.S. Senate in Alabama which took place the day before. In addition, we also spoke about the impending retirement of 6th district House of Representatives member Bob Goodlatte and the continuing investigation of collusion between the Russian government and Donald Trump.
On Wednesday, September 20th, Andy Schmookler and I appeared on 550 AM, WSVA for the 50th time. We started off talking about the upcoming election for the governor of Virginia. I offered several reasons why I believe that liberty-minded folks should not vote for Ed Gillespie, the Republican nominee, in November. From there, we spoke about efforts to revive the Obamacare repeal and the possible brewing conflict with North Korea.
Although originally scheduled to air today, August 16th, WSVA moved our radio hour to Monday, August 14th, due to pressing events at the time. And despite Andy Schmookler being in Shenandoah County and my recent move to Morgantown, WV, the show will go on!
For our 49th episode, the issues centered around the rally and violence in Charlottesville over the weekend as well as a possible military strike against North Korea due to threats against Guam. We also touched on the failure of Obamacare repeal and the feud between Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell and President Trump. We would have also spoken about Elizabeth Warren and the fight for ideological control of the Democratic Party, but we ran out of time.
The central focus, as you might expect, was a discussion of the election results. We also spoke about the recent congressional testimonies of James Comey and Jess Sessions.
On the morning of May 3rd, Andy Schmookler and I appeared for our 46th time on 550 AM, WSVA. For the first time, neither of us were live in the studio today as Andy lives a good distance away and although I presently live in Harrisonburg, unfortunately, my car repairs are taking longer than anticipated.
Today, we spoke about Representative Bob Goodlatte (VA-6) and his lack of accessibility to the average person in the Shenandoah Valley, as well as President Donald Trump, his various proposals, and whether what he is doing is constitutional. We also briefly touched on the recent Democratic primary for the 26th district House of Delegates race.
Our next show will be at 9 AM on June 14th, the day after the Republican and Democratic primaries.
