Episode 28: The First Republican Debate

nationaljournal.com — Episodes of TwentySixteen are available on iTunes and Stitcher. Donald Trump dominated but he wasn't the only Republican to emerge from the first prime-time debate with momentum. Jeb Bush had been the guy to beat but John Kasich more effectively delivered the mainstream conservative message.

Episode 27: Debate Prep and The Donald

nationaljournal.com — Episodes of TwentySixteen are available on iTunes and Stitcher. We're one week out from the first presidential debate and Donald Trump is still soaking up most of the media spotlight -- and causing a new kind of heartburn for his Republican rivals.

Episode 26: The Spoiler, the Outsider and the Unknown

nationaljournal.com — Kristin, Shane and Josh talk about Trump's continuing threat to the Republican party's standing, "Black Lives Matter" protests disrupted Martin O'Malley and Bernie Sanders this week, and adding to the Republican variety pack of candidates this week is John Kasich, whose announcement brings the number of the party's candidates to an even sixteen.

Episode 25: Show Me the Money

nationaljournal.com — Episodes of TwentySixteen are also available on iTunes and Stitcher. Kristin and Shane are joined by National Journal columnist, Josh Kraushaar to discuss who is winning the presidential money race. Hillary Clinton pulled in the most campaign donations this quarter, but with so much being done by the Republican super PACs, this may not mean she has the greater financial position.

Episode 24: The Trump Problem

nationaljournal.com — Episodes of TwentySixteen are also available on iTunes and Stitcher. Donald Trump makes life difficult for the Republican Party, Hillary Clinton does her first national TV interview, and Scott Walker (finally and formally) prepares to launch his presidential campaign.

Episode 23: Chris Christie, Because Chris Christie

nationaljournal.com — Hillary Clinton is collecting buckets of cash, Jeb Bush is making long-terms bets on a presidential future and yet the second-tier candidates are relentlessly gnawing away. Kristin, Tim and Shane debate the effect of Bernie Sanders' crowds and Joe Biden's potential entry on the Democratic primary.

Episode 21: Jeb Bush Is Back

nationaljournal.com — Episodes of TwentySixteen are available on iTunes and Stitcher. Since last week's podcast, the two biggest names in the presidential race announced their campaigns. Jeb Bush kicked his off with an announcement in Florida, where he showed off his bilingual cred, and on a trip to New Hampshire, where he talked tax reform.

Episode 20: #MarcoRubioCrimeSpree

nationaljournal.com — Marco Rubio's finances were put in the spotlight this week, as a report from The New York Times detailed his questionable spending habits, and an apparent sore spot for his campaign team. Jeb Bush's staff shuffle signals a significant change in approach for the man who is only just now about to become officially in the race.

Iraq's Problem Is So Much Bigger Than Just Training Its Military

defenseone.com — Iraq's army is a pathetic mess. Everyone inside the Pentagon knows this. The White House does too. And setting aside official protest by Baghdad, the Iraqi government is so aware it's trembling. But that's not why ISIS is winning. And to be clear, ISIS is winning.

ISIS Is Not Just Iraq's Problem. It's Obama's.
