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 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.

Training the Iraqi army, again, is not going to stop ISIS. And Obama talking about it is just a distraction. nationaljournal.com/white-house/is…

Episode 19: It's Hard to Be King

nationaljournal.com — Weekly controversies, new challengers and a general disdain for the media have hurt Hillary Clinton in voters' eyes, but by enough to boost Republicans? Well, at least not Jeb Bush, whose popularity is falling due in no small part simply to name recognition.
