Curmudgeon’s Corner: Multiply Your Gifts

This week on Curmudgeon’s Corner, Ivan is back from Moscow and joins Sam to talk about his impressions of Russia. They also hit most of the last week of Trump administration craziness, they talk about Franken, Franks, Conyers, and Moore as part of the latest round of sexual harassment fallout, and they round it out with a little discussion of Bitcoin, CryptoKitties, iPhone X, and even Sam’s somewhat different Christmas tree.

Curmudgeon’s Corner: The Red Button is Bad

On this week’s Curmudgeon’s Corner Sam and Ivan hit three big issues: Trump’s accusation that Obama ordered wiretaps, the new Executive Order on immigration, and the plan to replace Obamacare. Along the way we also touch on an odd constitutional edge case, how Priebus is doing as Chief of Staff, and the usual weekly Russia updates.
