GOP's Big Voter Gains, Is Russian Encroaching on Estonia? Illegals Stunned By Lax Border

Today, Greg and Jim dissect the positive trend of Republican voters registering in encouraging numbers in several key battleground states, the concerning impingement of Russia on the Estonian border, and a reality at the border that's so alarming that even illegal immigrants are concerned about it. Plus, some fun with outgoing New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu's unvarnished opinions of other governors. First, they analyze the data showing that Republicans are registering voters in higher numbers in battleground states. They consider what the causes of this trend might be, pointing out how anti-establishment young voters might be rebelling against the left, which they see as the establishment.Next, they raise their eyebrows at the news that Russia has moved buoys along the Narva River that distinguish its territory from Estonia. They wonder why the US has so far refrained from commenting on the situation, though Estonia and NATO seem to be on high alert at this encroachment.Then they highlight the testimony of an illegal immigrant from Turkey, who expresses shock at the lack of security at the U.S. Border.Finally, they wrap up the episode with a good laugh courtesy of Gov. Sununu, who does not mince words about the two governors that no one likes.Please visit our great sponsors:Moinkhttps://moinkbox.com/martiniVisit today to get one year of the best Bacon you’ll ever taste free. Lumenhttps://lumen.meTake the next step in improving your health.  Use code 3ML at checkout for $100 off.ZBioticshttps://zbiotics.com/3MLVisit today and save 15% at checkout with code 3ML.

Leftist Lies Exposed: Kerry Protected Terrorists, NIH Cover-Up, More Hunter Lies Revealed

In this episode of the Three Martini Lunch, Greg and Jim have trouble separating the good, the bad, and the crazy from each martini as more details come out about John Kerry blocking the FBI from arresting terrorists, the NIH evading FOIA requests during the pandemic, and Hunter Biden lying under oath three separate times.First, they slam former Secretary of State John Kerry for running interference for Iranian terrorists, as FBI whistleblowers have brought to light. They also note the positive aspects of having a Republican House which can investigate such shady dealings in the State Department.Next, they are exasperated with the testimony of former NIH official Dr. David Morens, as he plays dumb about what it means to delete federal records and insists that his references to communicating with Dr. Anthony Fauci through "back channels" were intended as jokes. They observe that you know the situation is dire when even Democratic Rep. Kweisi Mfume takes Morens to task for his behavior during the testimony.Finally, they find themselves not so shocked to learn that Hunter Biden has lied under oath three separate times about matters such as his communications with a Chinese Communist Party official and his involvement with procuring visas for foreign nationals. They wonder whether Hunter will face jail time for his refusal to cooperate with the subpoena, the way that former Trump advisor Peter Navarro did.Please visit our great sponsors:Lumenhttps://lumen.meTake the next step in improving your health.

Woke Portland DA Dumped, Michigan GOP's Petition Mishaps, College Students Resist Reading

Greg and Jim dive into the latest conservative victories in the justice system, the Michigan GOP's latest trouble with accusations of  fraudulent signatures, and the rise of college students' mulish insistence on not completing assigned reading.First, they kick off the episode with a double fisted martini: woke Portland DA Mike Schmidt looks like he will be ousted from office for his soft-on-crime policies. Additionally, Georgia Supreme Court Justice Andrew Pinson successfully fended off the challenge of former Rep. John Barrow, who campaigned primarily on a pro-abortion platform.Next, they sigh and shake their heads at the Michigan GOP, which never seems to learn its lesson, as candidates are coming under fire for allegedly committing ballot signature fraud once again. They examine the poor condition that much of state-level GOP management has fallen into, in Michigan and beyond, and why gathering petition signatures is one of the most basic parts of politics.Finally, they find themselves bewildered by the latest trend among college students, who are constantly demanding that professors lower coursework expectations and workload. They point out the paradox that, while Ivy League schools are getting more and more selective, college students across the board are learning less and show poorer work ethic than past generations.Please visit our great sponsors:ZBioticshttps://zbiotics.com/3MLVisit today and save 15% at checkout with code 3ML.  Lumenhttps://lumen.meTake the next step in improving your health.

Trump's Lawyers Crush Cohen, Gaza Relief Gets Stolen, Biden's Hostage Blunder

Greg and Jim have a lot to discuss as they unpack the stellar work that Trump's defense attorneys did as they cross-examined former Trump loyalist Michael Cohen, the disastrous looting of U.S. aid being sent to the Gaza strip, and the latest cringeworthy Biden gaffe.First, they praise Donald Trump's lawyers for being on their A-game while handling Michael Cohen's cross-examination and examining the final witnesses. They observe that the prosecution's case has been badly damaged at this point, but that we still cannot be certain of what the final verdict will be.Next, they criticize the U.N's poor handling of the transportation of relief supplies in Gaza, as looters are scrambling for the aid that the U.S. has sent over. They contemplate whether these looters might have an association with Hamas, and note that the officials who are transporting the aid must provide armed security if they hope to secure their supplies.Finally, they roll their eyes as Biden puts his senility into full view once again, introducing an American hostage...who is still being held by Hamas. They speculate on whether the Democratic Party might swap Biden for another candidate before this year's election, depending on whether he can pull it together for the upcoming debate with Trump.Please visit our great sponsors:Omaha Steakshttps://omahasteaks.comUse promo code MARTINI for additional savings when you shop Gourmet Gift Packages for Father’s Day.  Lumenhttps://lumen.meTake the next step in improving your health.

Iran's President Killed, Biden's Racial Demagoguery, Lake Looks Like a Loser

Greg is back on a busy news day, as he and Jim discuss the death of Iran's president, Biden's disgustingly divisive commencement speech, and the GOP latching on to a loser in the Arizona U.S Senate race.First, they shed zero tears upon the death of radical Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi and three other officials in a helicopter crash on Sunday. They document Raisi's murderous record and why his death is not worth mourning, but they also note that not much will change anytime soon for the Iranian people eager to be free.Next, they hammer President Biden for his racially divisive demagoguery in his commencement address at Morehouse College in Georgia. They not only dissect the appalling lies in the speech but also what it tells us about how Biden and his advisers see the state of the 2024 campaign.Finally, they groan as a new poll shows Democrat Ruben Gallego leading Republican Kari Lake by a wide margin in the Arizona Senate race. They see Lake as a surefire loser with way too much political baggage and urge GOP voters there to pick a nominee who would be far better at the job and would actually have a chance at winning in November.Please visit our great sponsors:Lumenhttps://lumen.meTake the next step in improving your health.

Presidential Election Maps; Juveniles in Congress; PGA Felon

Jim and guest host Chad Benson close out the week by asking if the state of Minnesota is really as safe for Joe Biden as Democrats insist, roll their eyes at the latest ridiculous juvenile behavior on Capitol Hill, and then contemplate the future options of the notorious dangerous outlaw, PGA champion Scottie Scheffler. Please visit our great sponsors:Fast Growing Treeshttps://fastgrowingtrees.com/martiniUse code Martini to save an additional 15% off on your first order. Lumen https://lumen.meTake the next step in improving your health.  Use code 3ML at checkout for $100 off.

HHS Funding Changes in Wuhan; Presidential Debates; Democratic Convention

Chad is still in for Greg, and he and Jim warn that Donald Trump may have agreed to a bad deal on the debate schedule, and marvel that a Democratic congressman is so worried about 1968-style violence outside the Democratic National Convention in Chicago that he wants the whole convention canceled.Please visit our great sponsors:Fast Growing Treeshttps://fastgrowingtrees.com/martiniUse code Martini to save an additional 15% off on your first order. Lumen https://lumen.meTake the next step in improving your health.  Use code 3ML at checkout for $100 off.

Presidential Debates; Tariffs; Inflation

GOOD: Well, for what it's worth, Biden says he wants to do debates. I'll believe it when I see it.BAD: I'm a cheap date when it comes to any policy that aims to hurt the Chinese government, but these tariffs are window-dressing that are a favor to labor unions, not a real effort to hit China.CRAZY: So when Biden says twice in five days that inflation was 9 percent when he took office, is that a deliberate lie, a sign he doesn't remember being corrected, or evidence no one around him bothered to correct him?Please visit our great sponsors:Fast Growing Treeshttps://fastgrowingtrees.com/martiniUse code Martini to save an additional 15% off on your first order. Lumen https://lumen.meTake the next step in improving your health.  Use code 3ML at checkout for $100 off.

Biden's Overconfidence, High Senate Stakes, and Psaki's Falsehood

Chad Benson is in for Greg Corombos today; Chad and Jim note that the Biden and his campaign insist that all of the polls are wrong, and that's he actually ahead of Trump. Feeling good, Democrats? Meanwhile, an unnerving observation is that if Democrats keep control of the Senate after this year's elections, there won't be a Joe Manchin or a Kyrsten Sinema around to constrain them. Meanwhile, Jen Psaki's new autobiography includes an error so glaring that even Kristi Noem exclaimed, "Wow, you need to hire a proofreader."Please visit our great sponsors:Fast Growing Treeshttps://fastgrowingtrees.com/martiniUse code Martini to save an additional 15% off on your first order. Lumen https://lumen.meTake the next step in improving your health.  Use code 3ML at checkout for $100 off.

The State of the Media: The Variety, The Rank Partisanship, The Exhaustion

The mainstream media have never been friends of conservatives, but their approach to news - and political news in particular - is far different than it was just a few decades ago. But the media landscape is also very different than it was a generation ago. In today's special edition, Jim and Greg assess the good, the bad, and the crazy of today's media.Some conservatives may wonder what's good about the media. The simple answer is we have exponentially more options today to seek out and discover the news. Not that long ago, a few different news organizations dictated which stories you would hear about. That's not true anymore. Jim and Greg discuss the challenges that brings but also the opportunity for Americans to have a far more comprehensive idea of what is really happening.Then, they dive into the biggest problem in our political media - the glaring shift from a leftward bias to leftward partisanship. They explain the difference, how quickly that evolution happened, and why it's such a significant and damaging change to our news and our politics.Finally, they discuss an inevitable consequence of a never-ending news cycle - media burnout. With an avalanche of stories in our news feeds every day, many people are getting exhausted by it and simply don't pay attention anymore. Is that a good trend or will it lead to a more uninformed public?Please visit our great sponsors:Fast Growing Treeshttps://fastgrowingtrees.com/martiniUse code Martini to save an additional 15% off on your first order.

Hamas Stops Hostage Talks, Dems Fear Convention Chaos, Why RFK's Brainworm Matters

Join Jim and Greg as they sort out three more crazy martinis from the Middle East to political conventions to brain worms.First, they're furious but not at all surprised by Hamas announcing it is no longer interested in negotiating the release of hostages outside of its offer to hand over dead ones if Israel permanently halts military action in Gaza. President Biden's actions have clearly emboldened the terrorists.Next, they get a kick out of Democrats fearing their August convention in Chicago will fall victim to huge anti-Israel protests from far-left activists. It's a problem completely of the Dems' own making - not only for encouraging extremist thinking in colleges and beyond but also for picking the crime-ridden city of Chicago for the convention in the first place.Finally, they discuss the revelation that Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. was diagnosed with a brain worm more than a decade ago and use that as a launching pad to explain why major presidential candidates should be required to release a lot of health information.

DeSantis Gives Protesters a History Lesson, Biden Protects Hamas, Biden's Big Inflation Lie

Join Jim and Greg as they discuss a much needed history lesson from Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, President Biden providing cover for Hamas, and Biden offering a big fat le about inflation.First, they applaud Gov. DeSantis for supporting the effective & sane campus protest policies at the University of Florida and also explaining to demonstrators that there never was a Palestinian state.Then they hammer President Biden for turning his back on Israel and saying he will cut off more weapons for Israel if Israeli Defense Forces take the fight to Hamas in Rafah. He's essentially doing everything he can to save Hamas.Finally, they call out Biden again for telling CNN's Erin Burnett that the inflation rate was nine percent when he took office. It was actually 1.4 percent. Jim rips the president for concocting this fantasy world where he blatantly lies about reality and always tries to make himself out to be the hero.Please visit our great sponsors:Fast Growing Treeshttps://fastgrowingtrees.com/martiniUse code Martini to save an additional 15% off on your first order.

'Haunted' by Hearing Other Views, UNC Faculty's Revolt, Pentagon Tortures Language Over Gaza

It's an all-crazy day as Jim and Greg discuss the unhinged political intolerance of a former mainstream media reporter, professors withholding grades over the consequences for anti-Israel protests, & tortured language and logic at the Pentagon over our policy in Gaza. First, they sigh as former NBC News and CNN reporter Michelle Kosinski goes on a Twitter rant about how she is "haunted" by a dinner she had with people she refers to as "closeted MAGAts." Why? Because some were Ivy League grads who didn't want to send their kids there and others disagreed with the left's climate change narrative.  Next, they rip the faculty members at the University of North Carolina who are threatening not to turn in end-of-semester grades for any of their students unless the school reverses the suspensions of 15 students for breaking the law during the anti-Israel demonstrations. The UNC provost recommends sanctions against any instructor who does not turn in grades on time. Which side will blink? Finally, they unload on Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and the Biden administration for torturing language and logic, as Austin claims the 1,000 U.S. military personnel who will be constructing a pier on the Gaza coast will not be considered "boots on the ground."

Real World Consequences for Columbia, The Bogus Hamas Ceasefire, Dems & Race

Join Jim and Greg, who actually have a good martini today, along with an absurdly bad one, and some crazy double standards for Democrats.First, they welcome thirteen federal judges warning Columbia University that they will no longer accept the school's students as law clerks after the trespassing protests that commandeered a building and university leaders allowed it all to happen. They do want to make sure that students who didn't break the law don't get punished for the crimes of others, but it is a warning to Columbia that if it wants to be taken seriously, the worst elements on campus cannot be calling the shots.Next, they roll their eyes as Hamas agrees to a Middle East ceasefire that had never been on the table. Jim labels the plan an unacceptable counterproposal and explains why. He also blasts much of the mainstream media for proclaiming that Hamas had agreed to the deal and putting the pressure on Israel to consent to it.Finally, they note racial rhetoric from two Democrats that got some pushback but would have likely meant the end of any Republican's political career. The latest comes from New York Gov. Kathy Hochul who claimed that kids on the Bronx don't even know the word "computer." They also note Maryland Rep. David Trone, who is also running for U.S. Senate, using a racial slur during a committee hearing back in March. Trone says he uttered the wrong word, and it's likely that he did, but we all know the political volcano that would have ensued if a GOP lawmaker had said it.Please visit our great sponsors:Fast Growing Treeshttps://fastgrowingtrees.com/martiniUse code Martini to save an additional 15% off on your first order.

Biden's Ammo Pause for Israel, Rep. Cuellar Indicted for Bribery, Gov. Noem Keeps Digging

There are no good martinis to start the week but Jim and Greg have plenty to discuss about President Biden playing hardball with Israel over ammunition, a seemingly sane House Democrat getting indicted on bribery charges, and South Dakota Gov. just making things worse as she tries to promote her new book.First, they fume over reports that Biden has paused the delivery of some U.S.-made ammunition to Israel, with no explanation from the White House or anyone else. Is this designed to discourage Israel from going into Rafah to eradicate Hamas? Whatever the reason, an explanation is warranted.Then, they discuss the indictments aimed at Texas Rep. Henry Cuellar and his wife Imelda over them allegedly accepting $600,000 in bribes from an energy firm connected with the Azerbaijan government. If it's true, Cuellar obviously ought to be prosecuted. But are Democrats also eager to oust the Democrat most likely to make common cause with Republicans on the border and other issues?Finally, they have multiple observations about South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem's failed attempts to stop the political bleeding over revelations in her new book. From dog killing to whether she ever met with North Korean dictators Kim Jon Un, the answers on "Face the Nation" Sunday were less than impressive - and further proof she won't be and shouldn't be nominated for vice president.Please visit our great sponsors:Fast Growing Treeshttps://fastgrowingtrees.com/martiniUse code Martini to save an additional 15% off on your first order.

Trump's VP Short List? Economic Warning Signs, Biden Adds DACA to Obamacare

Jim and Greg finish a very long and busy week by mulling over the four names reported to be on Trump's VP short list, some concerning signs in the April jobs report, and President Biden taking a page from Barack Obama's guide to political pandering.First, they consider the pros and cons of the four figures reported to be under serious consideration to be Donald Trump's running mate. What benefits do North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, and Ohio Sen. J.D. Vance potentially bring to the ticket and what are their liabilities?Next, they size up the April jobs report - which showed positive job growth but not as much as expected. Plus, they highlight the massive number of Americans who have stopped looking for work and dropped out of the labor force.Finally, they discuss President Biden's election year ploy to add DACA recipients (people who were brought to the U.S. illegally by their parents) to Obamacare. And guess who gets to pay for those health care bills?

More Encampments Forced to End, Biden's Late Lurch to the Truth, Could Nevada Go Red?

Join Jim and Greg as they discuss more campus crackdowns, how the left really offers little besides destruction, President Biden condemning illegal protests only after they've finally been dealt with, and whether Trump and other Republicans might actually have a shot at winning in Nevada this year.First, they welcome California authorities ending the trespassing protests at UCLA and they also get a kick out of these agitators demonizing the University of California system as being a product of  colonialism. They also notice that these "encampments" are all coming down around the same time. Coincidence?Next, they largely agree with President Biden's comments on Thursday defending the right to protest peacefully but denouncing demonstrators who trespass, vandalize, and threaten other people. But where was this a week or two ago? Why does the statement only come now as the protests end?Finally, they dig into Nevada polling numbers and wonder whether Donald Trump can be the first GOP nominee to win the state in 20 years or whether the Silver State will prove to be fool's gold for Republicans yet again.Please visit our great sponsors:Fast Growing Treeshttps://fastgrowingtrees.com/martiniUse code Martini to save an additional 15% off on your first order.

Cops Clear Columbia Cosplay, The Federal Financial Aid Fiasco, Biden Mulls Gaza Refugees

Join Jim and Greg as they cheer the end of the anti-Israel encampment at Columbia while relishing the leftist insanity on open display. Plus, Jim fumes over the federal government's persistent failures to help families determine financial aid for college, and President Biden considers accepting "refugees" from Gaza.First, they cheer the NYPD for declaring the occupation of a Columbia University academic building to be a riot and arresting dozens of trespassing radicals. But they also get a lot of laughs out of the demonstrators' earlier, convoluted demands that the university provide or allow "humanitarian aid" - meaning food and water - as they illegally controlled the building.Next, Jim sounds off as the U.S. Department of Education failed repeatedly to allow high school seniors to file their Free Application for Federal Student Aid forms in a timely manner and are now delaying critical financial aid information. The website was unusable for months after it was promised to be functioning and one major glitch was not fixed until yesterday. They also discuss how this is yet another area in which the federal government has no business being in charge and makes life much tougher for Americans.Finally, they fume as President Biden reportedly considers allowing refugees from Gaza to enter the United States, even though no Middle East country is willing to take in these people and the vast majority of people in Gaza hate the United States.Please visit our great sponsors:Fast Growing Treeshttps://fastgrowingtrees.com/martiniUse code Martini to save an additional 15% off on your first order.

Seinfeld vs. Woke Left, Columbia Radicals Running the Campus, U.S. Doesn't Need a 'Momala'

Join Jim and Greg today we they cheer Jerry Seinfeld for correctly accusing the woke left of killing comedy as we knew it for generations, hammer the administrators at Columbia University for continuing to let the inmates run the asylum, and cringing as Drew Barrymore (and way too many other Americans) see themselves as the children of our politicians.First, they agree wholeheartedly with comedy legend Jerry Seinfeld's contention that the woke left's obsession with never being offended has effectively killed television comedies and many other forms of the art. And Jim adds that comedy is also a problem for the left because it helps people see their shared life experiences...and that's bad for a movement who is constantly seeking to divide us.Next, they unload on the president and other administrators at Columbia University. After setting another deadline for the pro-Hamas, anti-Israel demonstrators to clear their encampment, there were no consequences when the protesters ignored it. Later, the campus radicals took over an academic building and administrators thus far doing nothing about it.Finally, they groan as TV host Drew Barrymore tells Vice President Kamala Harris, "We need you to be Momala for the country."Jim and Greg explain why they think it is painfully wrong for Americans to think of themselves as the children of our political leaders, but they look back at a cringeworthy moment from a presidential campaign decades ago that provided momentum for this warped notion.

Memoir Backlash Dogs Kristi Noem, FBI's Flawed Crime Numbers, Media Fawn Over Biden

Join Jim and Greg today as they chronicle South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem murdering her chances to become Trump's running mate, why the FBI's claims of falling crime rates are seriously flawed, and the media praising President Biden for preserving a free press when his actions suggest exactly the opposite.First, they dig into the four-day firestorm of criticism against South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, after it was revealed in her forthcoming autobiography that years ago she shot a 14-month-old dog when it failed as a hunting dog. They're also critical of Noem and hope this development takes her out of the running for the GOP vice presidential nomination since her previous personal and policy decisions already ought to disqualify her.Next, they groan as the FBI fails to get an accurate picture of crime rates across the nation by forcing local police to enter data in such a cumbersome way that some big cities don't enter crime statistics at all. And even in the cities where authorities do submit crime numbers, the FBI is still reporting lower numbers than local officials are announcing. Bottom line: the left's narrative that crime is plummeting (allegedly to 50-year lows) is dead wrong.Finally, they roll their eyes as NBC's Kelly O'Donnell lavishes praise on President Biden, saying his mere presence at the White House Correspondents Dinner is a strong defense of free speech and a free press. The Biden's administration's track record tells a very different story.Please visit our great sponsors:Fast Growing Treeshttps://fastgrowingtrees.com/martiniUse code Martini to save an additional 15% off on your first order.

White House Press Office Intrigue, Record Low U.S. Fertility, USC Cancels Commencement

Join Jim and Greg as they dig into reports that White House officials tried and failed to remove one of President Biden's biggest liabilities. They also have plenty to say about America's perilously low fertility rates and USC deciding to punish its graduates out of fear of some radical students.First, they pop the popcorn and discuss the New York Post report that de facto White House Communications Director Anita Dunn tried to get Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre to take a new job in order to hire someone much more talented than Jean-Pierre at the podium. But Jean-Pierre doesn't want to leave and the Biden team can't fire her.They also shudder as the U.S. fertility rate drops to a record low of 1.62 births per woman. That is well below the rate of replacement and also spells big trouble for a government incapable of any spending restraint and that is in the midst of an avalanche of retirements in the baby boom generation. The current path is unsustainable and Jim offers young Americans encouragement that they can and should get married and start having babies.Finally, they denounce the University of Southern California's decision to cancel the main commencement ceremony out of fears there will be disruptions related to Middle East grievances. They explain how this only rewards the troublemakers and Jim stresses that the Class of 2024, of all groups, deserves to celebrate commencement.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniGet the Deluxe 3-Month Survival Food Kit and the peace of mind your family deserves.  Free shipping on orders over $97. ZBioticshttps://zbiotics.com/3MLVisit today and save 15% at checkout with code 3ML.

Fetterman's Moral Clarity, Clueless Campus Protesters, UCLA's 'Health Equity' Insanity

Jim is back today and fired up to discuss Pennsylvania Sen. John Fetterman's resolute denunciation of Hamas, the utter cluelessness of some student protesters, and UCLA Medical School's insane "health equity" class.First, they applaud Sen. Fetterman for highlighting the 200 days since Hamas slaughtered at least 1,200 Jews, raped many others, and took hundreds hostage, including Americans. As Hamas posts video of one hostage - who now only has one arm - Fetterman explains very clearly how the Israel-Hamas war could be over instantly.Next, they salute the college presidents and political leaders who have done an effective job at shutting down anti-Israel protests that refuse to leave private property. And they point out multiple examples of these college students knowing next to nothing about why they're protesting and what the basic facts are about war in the Middle East.Finally, they just shake their heads as a "health equity" class at UCLA Medical School teaches aspiring doctors that weight loss is a "hopeless endeavor" and that "obesity" is a slur "used to exact violence on fat people."Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniGet the Deluxe 3-Month Survival Food Kit and the peace of mind your family deserves.

Biden's Pandering Backfires, The Looming TikTok 'Ban,' Opposing DEI Attacks Democracy?

Hillsdale College Radio General Manager and Radio Free Hillsdale Hour Host Scot Bertram is in for Jim. Today, Scot and Greg serve up at least one good martini, one that has the potential to be very good, and a really crazy one starring Stacey Abrams.First, they laugh as new Bloomberg poll numbers show President Biden's blatant pandering to Muslim voters in Michigan by verbally attacking Israel at every opportunity is showing small signs of success in that state but it's also causing Donald Trump to grow his lead in virtually every other battleground state.Next, they are cautiously optimistic about recently passed legislation that forces TikTok's parent company to sell the app or have it banned in the U.S. TikTok is well documented to be Chinese Communist Party spyware that harvests personal and national security data while getting millions of Americans - especially young people - addicted to the content, much of which is very harmful. But they also want to be sure this new law does not end up stifling online speech in any way.Then, they get a kick out twice-failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams stating that opposition to the implementation of the DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) agenda in schools is an attack on our democracy. They enjoy seeing how the Democrats now see any position contrary to their agenda as a threat to democracy - and the insanity doesn't stop there.Lastly, these two beleaguered Chicago Bears fans look ahead to Thursday's NFL Draft, in which the Bears have the first pick. Scot is optimistic about the team that's being assembled and Greg is just waiting to see how the Bears will squander this opportunity.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniGet the Deluxe 3-Month Survival Food Kit and the peace of mind your family deserves.  Free shipping on orders over $97. ZBioticshttps://zbiotics.com/3MLVisit today and save 15% at checkout with code 3ML.

The Feds' Chilling Title IX Nonsense, Biden Equivocates on Campus Protests, Sheetz Sued for Not Hiring Ex-Cons

Inez Stepman of the Independent Women's Forum and host of the "High Noon" podcast is in for Jim. Today, we discuss President Biden's absurd changes to Title IX, his feckless equivocating on anti-Semitic college protests, and his federal bureaucrats harassing a business for not hiring criminals. First, they break down the Biden Department of Education's radical changes to Title IX of the Civil Rights Act, adding gender identity protections to an area of law specifically focused on ensuring opportunities for women and girls. Now, the government will force schools at every level to allow students and personnel to use whichever bathroom they identify with, compel speech through mandatory preferred pronoun usage, and strip college students of due process rights when accused of sexual misconduct.  Then, they react to the latest in the anti-Semitic protests happening at Columbia University and many other far-left, supposedly elite institutions. They also react to President Biden condemning the protests but - in the same breath - also condemning "those who don't understand what's going on with the Palestinians." Finally, they shake their heads as Biden-appointed bureaucrats at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) sue Sheetz gas stations for racial discrimination by refusing to hire applicants who failed a criminal background check. Please visit our great sponsors: 4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniGet the Deluxe 3-Month Survival Food Kit and the peace of mind your family deserves.

Anti-Semites Occupy Campuses, Pritzker Promises Calm DNC, RFK Jr.'s Impact on Michigan

Hillsdale College Radio General Manager and Radio Free Hillsdale Hour Host Scot Bertram is in for Jim. Today, Scot and Greg tackle virulent anti-Semitism on the campuses of many supposedly elite colleges, Dems' wishful thinking on this summer's convention running without major disruptions from protesters, and the impact RFK Jr. may have in Michigan.First, they chronicle how ugly anti-Semitic protests are consuming campuses from Columbia to MIT to Yale and beyond with demonstrators trying to "occupy" parts of the schools while harassing, intimidating, and threatening Jewish students and faculty. These protests are overtly pro-Hamas now and the "Students for Justice in Palestine" say they plan to bring this to colleges throughout the country.Next, they roll their eyes as Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker looks at these protests and says he doesn't expect any problems from them when the Democratic National Convention comes to Chicago this summer. It's a bold prediction given Chicago's inability to prevent chaos on a normal day.Finally, as Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. qualifies for the presidential ballot in Michigan, how big of a factor will he become in a state the Biden campaign is already very nervous about. They also look at some polling about how RFK Jr. may impact the race and the big problem the Trump campaign seems to be having in getting supporters to vote.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniGet the Deluxe 3-Month Survival Food Kit and the peace of mind your family deserves.  Free shipping on orders over $97. Fast Growing Treeshttps://fastgrowingtrees.com/martiniUse code Martini to save an additional 15% off on your first order. ZBioticshttps://zbiotics.com/3MLVisit today and save 15% at checkout with code 3ML.

Israel Strikes Iran, China Targets U.S. Power Grids & Water, Most Kennedys Rally for Biden

Join Jim and Greg as they discuss Israel's response to Iran, the Chinese threat to America's critical infrastructure, and the public political fight among the Kennedys.First, they welcome news of an Israeli military response against Iran. Details remain sketchy but it seems to be a much smaller operation than Iran launched over the weekend. So is this the end of the back-and-forth or is there more to come? Next, they shudder as FBI Director Christopher Wray says China is actively trying to hack and disable critical U.S. infrastructure like electricity, water, and more. Finally, they discuss most Kennedy family members endorsing President Biden over RFK, Jr. But do voters care what the Kennedys think? And what does this event tell us about how worried the Biden campaign is about RFK, Jr.?Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniGet the Deluxe 3-Month Survival Food Kit and the peace of mind your family deserves.

Make the Houthis Terrorists Again, NPR Embraces Leftist Label, Biden's Latest Lies

Join Jim and Greg as they sound off on some good news out of the House of Representatives and some really crazy news about taxpayer-funded media and President Biden's latest whoppers. First, they're glad to see a big bipartisan majority in the House of Representatives vote to declare the Iran-backed Houthis to be a "Foreign Terrorist Organization" again. If the Senate also passes it, Jim and Greg hope Biden will the sign the bill and not stubbornly stick to his decision to reverse President Trump designation of the Houthis as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. Then, they wince as National Public Radio (NPR) basically forces longtime editor Uri Berliner out after he publicly scolded NPR for engaging in partisan politics by stifling stories like the Hunter Biden laptop and the origins of COVID while reporting Rep. Adam Schiff's version of the Trump-Russia investigation as the truth. Instead, leaders there are proving most of Berliner's accusations true and embracing leftist narratives. They also recoil at a TED Talk that new NPR CEO Katherine Maher delivered about how we all have our own truths and that building consensus is more important than pursuing truth. Finally, they groan as President Biden repeatedly tells the thoroughly disproven story of his uncle allegedly getting by cannibals in New Guinea during World War II. And Biden also claims he told Israel not to go into Haifa - which is an Israeli city. But Jim says the statement is also very  problematic on another level. Please visit our great sponsors: 4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniGet the Deluxe 3-Month Survival Food Kit and the peace of mind your family deserves.  Free shipping on orders over $97.  Fast Growing Treeshttps://fastgrowingtrees.com/martiniUse code Martini to save an additional 15% off on your first order.

GOP Ousting Another Speaker? The Left's WNBA Pay Grievance, Can't Say 'Illegal Alien'

Hillsdale College Radio General Manager and Radio Free Hillsdale Hour Host Scot Bertram is in for Jim. Today, Scot and Greg serve up three crazy martinis ranging from Capitol Hill to women's sports to the high school classroom.First, they sigh as some House Republicans vow to move forward on trying to remove House Speaker Mike Johnson over his handling of the House agenda - and what his critics call passing the Democrats' agenda. There are valid criticisms of Johnson's decisions, positions, and priorities on some issues, but what would removing another Speaker of the House accomplish now, when Republicans have an even smaller majority than they did when Johnson was elected?Next, they roll their eyes as President Biden and others on the left try to pander to women by demanding WNBA players get equal pay with the men in the NBA. Of course the big wage disparity has nothing to do with the sex of the players but whether their league is profitable. The NBA makes billions of dollars each year. The WNBA has lost money for its entire existence. Finally, they highlight the case of a North Carolina high school student who was suspended for three days for asking his teacher whether the word "alien" in his vocabulary lesson referred to space aliens or people who come into the U.S. with no green cards. Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniGet the Deluxe 3-Month Survival Food Kit and the peace of mind your family deserves.  Free shipping on orders over $97. Moinkhttps://moinkbox.com/martiniVisit today to get one year of the best Bacon you’ll ever taste free.

Florida vs. Traffic-Blocking Protesters, Dems Meddling in GOP Primaries, Trump Judge's 'Unforced Error'

Join Jim and Greg as they discuss the right approach towards anti-Israel protesters blocking traffic. Plus, they take on Dems trying to nominate unelectable Republicans again and the New York judge who may refuse to let Donald Trump attend his son's graduation.First, they fume over pro-Palestinian (often overtly pro-Hamas) demonstrators shutting down traffic on the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City, and the roads leading to O'Hare International Airport in Chicago. But they also highlight how Florida officials quickly thwarted similar disruptions in and around Miami.Next, they raise warmings that Democrats are once again trying to meddle in Republican primaries by purporting to campaign on behalf of candidates that the activists on the left think will be easier to defeat in the general election. The latest mischief is happening in a House swing district in Pennsylvania.Finally, they shake their heads as the judge in Donald Trump's New York City hush money trial says that Trump will be arrested if he misses any days in court. He also would not commit to allowing Trump to attend his son's high school graduation next month.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniGet the Deluxe 3-Month Survival Food Kit and the peace of mind your family deserves.  Free shipping on orders over $97. Fast Growing Treeshttps://fastgrowingtrees.com/martiniUse code Martini to save an additional 15% off on your first order.

Iran Attacks Israel: Far Beyond a Symbolic Strike, Great Missile Defense, Biden Opposes Israeli Response

Iran attacked Israel over the weekend, and Jim and Greg break down the good, bad, and crazy elements of this huge story.First, they reject the notion that this was a largely symbolic attack from Iran - supposedly because everyone knew Iran's weapons would not get past the missile defense capabilities in the region. But Jim points out that you don't send hundreds of missiles and hundreds of drones if your effort is symbolic. They also chafe at reports that Biden (through Turkish intermediaries) told Iran to keep any attacks "within certain limits." And they point out that Iran once again rejected Biden's feeble insistence of "don't" when asked about Iranian aggression.Next, they cheer the excellence of execution by the U.S., Great Britain, Israel, Jordan, and even Saudi Arabia in thwarting the Iranian attack with missile defense and other collaboration. And they take a moment to give credit to the man who insisted on pursuing missile defense more than 40 years ago despite the derision of Democrats and the media - President Ronald Reagan.Finally, they groan as Biden tells Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu not to respond against Iran because the missile defense operation resulted in "a win" for Israel. That's not how this works.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniGet the Deluxe 3-Month Survival Food Kit and the peace of mind your family deserves.

Fixing the Cost of College: Make Schools Back up Loans, GOP Needs a Plan, The Enrollment Cliff

President Biden is once again touting his unconstitutional efforts to transfer the student loan debt from those who took out the loans to the taxpayers who did not. It's not just illegal, it's immoral. And there are much better ways to address the problem. Today, Jim and Greg examine three different areas worthy of much more attention.First, they cheer Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for arguing that colleges and universities should back up the cost of student loans if their graduates are not able to find jobs with high enough salaries to pay them back. He says it's not only right because the schools benefit immensely from student loans but it would also force schools to focus on subjects in which their students can find good jobs.Next, they also welcome their friend Inez Stepman's idea of taxing the endowments of colleges and universities, instead of allowing schools to treat them like hedge funds. Beyond that, they implore Republicans to come up with a coherent message other than opposition to what Biden is doing. Americans are furious about Biden's shifting of this debt onto the rest of taxpayers, but without an actual plan to address the problem, Republicans are not doing taxpayers or themselves any favors.Finally, they note the coming higher education "enrollment cliff," as the number of high school graduates is expected to drop considerably in the next few years. Will that refocus the priorities of these universities? And how will greater interest in trade schools impact all of this?Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniGet the Deluxe 3-Month Survival Food Kit and the peace of mind your family deserves.  Free shipping on orders over $97. Fast Growing Treeshttps://fastgrowingtrees.com/martiniUse code Martini to save an additional 15% off on your first order.

The Lasting Impact of O.J. Simpson: How the Trial Still Impacts Media, Culture, Race & More

On Thursday, we learned that O.J. Simpson died after a battle with cancer. He was 76 years old. In the mid-1990's, his murder trial dominated news coverage and divided a nation. Today, Jim and Greg look back, but not as a trip down memory lane. Instead, it's about understanding why this was such a massive story and the impact that the O.J. saga still has on our nation today.Younger Americans may know him only as an accused murderer, if they remember him at all. If you're a bit older, you remember the star athlete, actor, and football commentator who was beloved throughout the nation. It's a fall from grace that Jim and Greg chronicle to explain just how stunning it was that Simpson was accused of murdering ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Ron Goldman.From there, Jim and Greg dig into the legal and media circus that played out in the murder trial, on the news, in late night television and beyond. The story engulfed our culture in ways that we still feel today - and not for the better.Finally, they examine the legacy of O.J. at his death - nearly 30 years after he was accused of two savage murders.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniGet the Deluxe 3-Month Survival Food Kit and the peace of mind your family deserves.

Arizona & Abortion, Inflation Still High, Biden's Demands for Israel, Jackson-Lee's Iffy Astronomy

It's four martinis for the price of three today and none of them are good.Join Jim and Greg as they start a busy day with the Arizona Supreme Court upholding an 1864 law limiting abortions only to medical emergencies for the mother. "Life of the mother" used to be a pretty standard position on abortion for Republicans, but the hypocritical reaction from most GOP figures yesterday was quite telling. They'd much prefer the talking point than the actual policy.They also groan as the monthly inflation numbers once again come in higher than expected. Prices remain stubbornly high - and often keep rising - regardless of what the president or his allies tell you.Plus, Biden suggests Israel should announce it will stop fighting Hamas for 6-8 weeks to allow significant humanitarian relief into Gaza. He made no mention of requiring the release of hostages in response. Meanwhile, Hamas has already rejected a cease-fire but Biden can't seem to condemn that publicly.Finally, Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee offers an astronomy lesson for the ages at an event celebrating the solar eclipse.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniGet the Deluxe 3-Month Survival Food Kit and the peace of mind your family deserves.  Free shipping on orders over $97. Fast Growing Treeshttps://fastgrowingtrees.com/martiniUse code Martini to save an additional 15% off on your first order.

Fetterman & Squatters, Trump & Abortion, Biden & American Hostages

Join Jim and Greg as they serve up three important martinis, with Sen. Fetterman providing another pleasant surprise, Donald Trump stirring up the abortion debate on the right, and President Biden getting called out over his handling of the Middle East crisis.First, they cheer Pennsylvania Sen. John Fetterman for blasting the notion that squatters have any right to live on property they don't own and have no permission to stay on. He also rips soft-on-crime policies.Next, they dissect Donald Trump's announcement on his abortion stance. While agreeing with Trump that the Democrats' agenda - of taxpayer funded abortions up to the moment of birth and even allowing babies to die after surviving abortions - is the far more radical position on the issue, they're also critical of Trump's "follow your heart" advice on abortion in the states for a number of reasons.Finally, they chide The Dispatch for a pretty weak case that President Biden has kept his focus on the Americans being held hostage by Hamas in Gaza. While it's true that Biden has addressed the despicable abductions, it's not very often and there's an easy way to tell how much public attention the White House and the media want to give this issue.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniGet the Deluxe 3-Month Survival Food Kit and the peace of mind your family deserves.  Free shipping on orders over $97.

Israeli Unity vs. Hamas, The Deceptive Jobs Report, Blumenthal Pushing Sotomayor to Retire

Join Jim and Greg for a few quick thoughts on the solar eclipse and then martinis covering the Middle East, the hidden truth inside the March jobs report, and a senator trying to push a Supreme Court justice into retirement.First, they applaud former Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett for fending off the biased questions of CNN's Fareed Zakaria and repeatedly echoing his political rival, current Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in saying that Israel must destroy Hamas once and for all.Next, they shudder at the truth behind the supposedly good March jobs report - that virtually all of the jobs created last month were part-time positions. They discuss what this means and why it explains Americans' disgust with Biden over the economy despite good unemployment numbers.Finally, they get a kick out of Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal publicly pressuring Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor to retire - with the not-so-subtle suggestion that she could die soon and hand a Republican president the opportunity to replace her.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniGet the Deluxe 3-Month Survival Food Kit and the peace of mind your family deserves.

Jim Returns to Ukraine: War Update, A Complicated Ally, The Secret Drone Factory

Join Jim and Greg as Jim offers a fascinating recap of his recent return to Ukraine and describes what was different this time around. Plus, Jim's recollection of a conversation with a former member of the Russian Duma who is now allied with Ukraine, and a very interesting look at the innovations happening right now to help Ukrainian soldiers.First, Jim explains why he wanted to go back to Ukraine a little more than six months after his visit last summer. He also updates the war effort, the relentless Russian "meat waves," the impact of U.S. aid  being on hold, and what conditions for an end to the war might be under consideration. They also discuss Ukraine's policy of not holding elections while under martial law. Would it be better to demonstrate a commitment to democracy regardless of the circumstances or is it simply impossible to hold elections under the current circumstances?Next, Jim recounts his meeting with Ilya Ponomarev, a former member of the Russian Duma who is now working with Ukraine against the Russians. His tactics are certainly fodder for debate but Jim explains why what Ponomarev is doing is quite courageous.Finally, Jim describes his visit to a secret drone factory somewhere in Ukraine and shares as much as he can about the innovations happening to assist the war effort and the people working there.

Nebraska's Electoral Votes, Clinton's New Book & Jeffrey Epstein, Buttigieg's EV Gaslighting

Join Jim and Greg as they dive into discussion about Nebraska's electoral votes, Bill Clinton writing another autobiography, and Pete Buttigieg gaslighting America about EV's.First, they consider what seems likely to be an unsuccessful effort by Nebraska Republicans to switch the allotment of the state's electoral votes to a winner-take-all system, instead of awarding votes by who wins each congressional district. Jim says some consistency nationwide would be nice, while Greg laughs at all of the outrage on the left when their Electoral College overhaul agenda is far more radical.Next, they roll their eyes as Bill Clinton gets ready to release another new book in November, this one about his life since leaving the presidency. Jim wonders whether this will finally be the time when Clinton is forced to answer many lingering questions about his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein.Finally, they respond to Transportation Sec. Pete Buttigieg gaslighting Americans about the demand for electric vehicles, the auto industry shifting in the direction of EV production, and saying those trying to stop this movement are like people who wanted to focus on landlines as cell phones were coming onto the market. Jim and Greg point out the major holes in Buttigieg's talking points and why his landline comparison is pathetic.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniGet the Deluxe 3-Month Survival Food Kit and the peace of mind your family deserves.

It's in response to the millions poured into the 2020 elections by Facebook/Meta Founder Mark Zuckerberg.Finally, they're disgusted but not surprised that the Biden administration does not plan to honor its promise to refill the Strategic Petroleum Reserve after selling off much of it to artificially lower gas prices before the 2022 midterm electionsPlease visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniGet the Deluxe 3-Month Survival Food Kit and the peace of mind your family deserves.  Free shipping on orders over $97. Fast Growing Treeshttps://fastgrowingtrees.com/martiniUse code Martini to save an additional 15% off on your first order.  .

Also, she condemns Blasey Ford's allies for applying immense pressure on her supposed witnesses to corroborate her story but they refused to lie. Finally, they groan as Michigan Gov.

Trump Stands with Police, Palestinian 'Martyr Payments,' Pope Says Weapons Don't Bring Peace

Jim Geraghty is back! We'll have a full review of his time in Ukraine later this week but today he ready to focus on good, bad, and crazy martinis after sharing his thoughts on the passing of Sen. Lieberman last week.They kick off the martinis by appreciating Donald Trump for attending the wake of slain NYPD Officer Jonathan Diller and offering appropriate comments afterwards about how we need a major shift in how this country views police officers. Jim says moments like this are also why Trump holds narrow leads in virtually all of the swing states.Next, they sigh as the Biden administration thinks it found a partner in Middle East peace with the Palestinian Authority. But first, the U.S. is trying to convince this supposedly more responsible group's leaders to stop paying the families of people committing terrorist attacks against Israel. If that's a real dilemma for the Palestinian Authority, its commitment to last peace seems more than a little dubious.Finally, they chide Pope Francis for using part of his Easter message to call for an immediate ceasefire in the Middle East and his curious contention that "peace is never made with weapons, but with outstretched hands and open hearts." That sounds nice but it's not always true and not realistic when dealing with bloodthirsty perpetrators of evil like Hamas.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniGet the Deluxe 3-Month Survival Food Kit and the peace of mind your family deserves.  Free shipping on orders over $97. Fast Growing Treeshttps://fastgrowingtrees.com/martiniUse code Martini to save an additional 15% off on your first order.

Youngkin Rejects Pot Shops, Hypocrisy Harms Women in NYC, The Trump-Endorsed Bible

Undisputed King of Stuff, columnist, and longtime Ricochet Editor-in-Chief Jon Gabriel is in for Jim today. Jon and Greg tackle one good martini and two crazy ones to close the week.First, they cheer Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin for his veto binge on many bills passed by Democrats out of the legislature (although he should have vetoed more). In addition to nixing a minimum wage hike and numerous gun control measures, Youngkin also rejected legislation to legalize marijuana dispensaries. And Jon and Greg have plenty to say in support of Youngkin slamming the brakes on pot shops.Next, they highlight the stunning hypocrisy by New York City Councilwoman Amanda Farias, who is lamenting that more men won't step in to protect women from attackers in the city. But just last year, she publicly denounced Daniel Penny, the ex-Marine who subdued a man on the subway after making many menacing threats to other passengers. What did Farias think would happen when people doing the right thing get prosecuted?Finally, while Jon and Greg highly endorse reading the Bible, they cringe as Donald Trump endorses Lee Greenwood's God Bless the USA Bible and the website proudly proclaims that it's the only Bible endorsed by Trump. Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.  Factor Mealshttps://factormeals.com/3ML50Get after your goals with Factor Meals.  Use code 3ML50 to save 50% today!Fast Growing Treeshttps://fastgrowingtrees.com/martiniUse code Martini to save an additional 15% off on your first order.

Joe Lieberman.First, they cheer Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and the state legislature for enacting anti-squatting legislation to provide protections for property owners and swift law enforcement removal of people illegally occupying others' homes.Next, they hammer CBS News reporter Ed O'Keefe and new Guatemalan Pres. Bernardo Arevalo for blatantly misrepresenting Donald Trump's comments on migrants and absurdly suggesting people have a fundamental right to come to the U.S. O'Keefe also suggests migrants' lives might be in danger in the U.S. if Trump wins in November.They also highlight the painfully predictable results of California raising the minimum wage for fast food workers to $20 per hour.Finally, they offer a toast to longtime Connecticut Sen.

RFK Jr.'s Radical Running Mate, Biden Mulls Major Amnesty, Anti-Semitism Stains Stanford

Inez Stepman of the Independent Women's Forum and host of the "High Noon" podcast is in for Jim. First, Inez and Greg assess Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s choice of Nicole Shanahan as his running mate and her startling record of supporting pro-criminal district attorneys and other initiatives aimed at softening penalties for even the worst offenders. But will picking a lefty help Kennedy draw more votes away from Biden?Next, they recoil as Politico reports Biden is considering amnesty for people who came to this country illegally more than 10 years ago and have family members or others who are citizens who might "suffer" if they were deported. Inez calls this DACA Part 2 but suspects the public reaction would be far more negative this time around.Finally, they highlight an Atlantic story documenting the brazen anti-Semitism at Stanford University ever since the atrocities perpetrated by Hamas in October - from personnel calling for the murder of President Biden to a speaker singling out Jewish students at a mandatory freshman lecture and more. Inez explains why this was the natural progression of leftism on campus and what steps could easily be taken to shake academia out of it's radical activism.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.  Factor Mealshttps://factormeals.com/3ML50Get after your goals with Factor Meals.  Use code 3ML50 to save 50% today!Fast Growing Treeshttps://fastgrowingtrees.com/martiniUse code Martini to save an additional 15% off on your first order.

Baltimore Bridge Disaster, Trump's Lower Bond, Biden Betrays Israel, NBC Revolts Over Ronna

Former Chief Assistant U.S. Attorney and National Review Contributing Editor Andy McCarthy is in for Jim today. Today, they cover four stories for the price of three martinis.Before getting to the official martinis, Andy and Greg discuss the cargo ship hitting and collapsing the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore. Andy cautions people from jumping to conclusions but also warns authorities not to rule out anything publicly just for the sake of trying to keep people calm.Next, Andy breaks down Monday's appeals court decision in New York, which reduced Donald Trump's bond in the civil fraud case to $175 million. Andy says it was a good decision but explains why the bond should be even lower.Then, they unload on President Biden and his advisers for abandoning Israel by allowing a United Nations ceasefire resolution to pass out of the UN Security Council. Biden has been growing colder and colder towards Israel in an effort to shore up votes, but Andy explains how Biden is simply continuing the Obama-era policy of appointing Islamists to influential government positions.Finally, they get a kick out of NBC and MSNBC anchors blasting their own bosses on the air for making former Republican National Committee Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel a paid contributor. Watching all the MSNBC personalities pretend the uproar is about something other than hiring a Republican is very amusing.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.  Factor Mealshttps://factormeals.com/3ML50Get after your goals with Factor Meals.  Use code 3ML50 to save 50% today!Fast Growing Treeshttps://fastgrowingtrees.com/martiniUse code Martini to save an additional 15% off on your first order.

Truth About Screens & Social Media, Rep. Gallagher Abandons Constituents, Blasey Ford is Back

Inez Stepman of the Independent Women's Forum and host of the "High Noon" podcast is in for Jim.  First, they react to Dr. Jonathan Haidt's latest writings and research confirming the devastating impact that 24/7 exposure to screens, the internet, and social media have had on Gen Z. The finding are terrible but knowing the facts is very helpful. So what are the lessons should take away from what we've learned over the past 17 years since the iPhone came out and just how much damage has been done to the young people who served as guinea pigs for this massive shift in technology. Next, they react to Wisconsin Rep. Mike Gallagher not only deciding not to run for re-election but to resign from Congress next month. Not only that, it appears he is postponing his resignation just long enough to prevent a special election to fill his seat, so it will stay vacant until November. Colorado's Ken Buck did the same thing earlier this month. Greg wonders why these two GOP members are selfishly leaving their constituents high and dry (as did Kevin McCarthy late last year) instead of honoring their commitments. However, Inez says the Republicans brought this dysfunction upon themselves by constantly ignoring their base, which now has a louder voice with such a slim House majority in place. Finally, they groan as Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault during high school without one stitch of evidence is now back with a book allegedly telling her story. Greg and Inez blast what appears to be the left's political long game in convincing the public over time that Blasey Ford really was a victim. And Inez highlights that on many college campuses, men are still often treated far worse than Kavanaugh. Please visit our great sponsors: 4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.   Factor Mealshttps://factormeals.com/3ML50Get after your goals with Factor Meals.  Use code 3ML50 to save 50% today! Fast Growing Treeshttps://fastgrowingtrees.com/martiniUse code Martini to save an additional 15% off on your first order.

Border Rush in El Paso, Green Agenda Choking Freedom, Palestinian Poll Ruins Dem Narrative

Undisputed King of Stuff, columnist, and longtime Ricochet Editor-in-Chief Jon Gabriel is in for Jim today. Today, Jon and Greg tackle three lousy martinis centered on the critical issues of national security and basic economic freedoms.First, they react to Thursday's horrifying rush of illegal aliens towards Texas National Guard troops and our border fence in El Paso, Texas. And despite this lawlessness, many of those people were allowed into the U.S.Next, they fume over President Biden's EPA announcing new emissions standards that would force electric vehicles to be a significant majority of new car purchases by 2032. Not only does this strangle economic choice but it's pure fantasy that our power grid can handle that massive surge in demand within a few years. And what if EV emissions are actually worse than those of regular cars? A new study suggests that's actually the case.Finally, they analyze a new poll of Palestinians which proves the Democrats' narrative on the Middle East is a lie. Palestinians do not condemn Hamas and they don't want peace with Israel.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.  ZBioticshttps://zbiotics.com/3MLVisit today and save 15% at checkout with code 3ML.

Sen. Kennedy vs. Gun Grabbing Judge, Afghan Debacle Worse Than Thought, Defending Cannibalism?

Undisputed King of Stuff, columnist, and longtime Ricochet Editor-in-Chief Jon Gabriel is in for Jim today. Today, Jon and Greg break down one thoroughly enjoyable congressional hearing, an utterly infuriating one, and perhaps the craziest martini of all time. But before the martinis, they provide a brief update on Jim's latest reporting, including the closest he's been to intense Russian bombings in Ukraine. Thankfully, Jim is fine, but please keep praying for his safety and for the Ukrainian people.In today's martinis, Jon and Greg appreciate Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy's master class in exposing President Biden's radical judicial nominees. This week he flummoxed Judge Nancy Maldonado by highlighting her call for an assault weapons ban in a previous job and making her prove she has no idea what she means by "assault weapons."Next, they head to a House hearing in which former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Gen. Mark Milley admits the Taliban has butchered a good number of our Afghan allies and that he and others in the Biden administration never knew how many Americans were in Afghanistan at the time of the withdrawal debacle so they had no idea how many were still there when the military left. They also highlight testimony from former CentCom Commander Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, who admitted, "When I received the order to withdraw the US military, I was not ordered to plan to get U.S. citizens out, our allies out, or evacuate our embassy."Finally, just one week after "right-wing influencers" were accused of falsely stating some Haitian gangs engaged in cannibalism (even though they were right), the push is now on to defend the hideous practice. NewScientist.com laments that in contrast to zombie movies and characters like Hannibal Lecter, "positive stories of cannibals are few and far between." They also claim our primitive ancestors ate their dead as a sign of respect. Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.  ZBioticshttps://zbiotics.com/3MLVisit today and save 15% at checkout with code 3ML.

The Texas Border Battle & the Courts, Fight Over the TikTok Bill, Why Do Squatters Have Rights?

Former Chief Assistant U.S. Attorney and National Review Contributing Editor Andy McCarthy is in for Jim. Andy & Greg tackle thorny issues from securing the border to banning TikTok to people losing their homes to squatters.First, they react to the whiplash of the U.S. Supreme Court initially staying the Texas legislation allowing the state to arrest and deport illegal aliens, then allowing the law to into effect, and now an appellate court putting it on hold again due to another challenge. Andy explains why the legal gears grind slowly and why the issue should not ideally be decided by the courts.Next, they dig into legislation that would ban "foreign adversary-controlled applications." The immediate goal is to ban TikTok or force its parent company to sever ties with the Chinese Communist Party. The app is Chinese spyware and also fills the minds of young people with poisonous ideas. But is the currebt legislation the best vehicle to make that happen or does it potentially threaten the speech rights of American citizens? Finally, they explore the horrifying trend of homeowners finding squatters living in their houses. The squatters have no lease or any other legal justification to be there but the laws in New York and other places make it extremely difficult for property owners to have the intruders removed.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.  ZBioticshttps://zbiotics.com/3MLVisit today and save 15% at checkout with code 3ML.

The Bill of Rights Does Not Protect the Government, It Protects Us from the Government

Former Chief Assistant U.S. Attorney and National Review Contributing Editor Andy McCarthy is in for Jim. Andy joins Greg at a perfect time to break down three big legal stories.First, they react to Monday's oral arguments at the U.S. Supreme Court about whether the government can pressure social media platforms to delete or reduce visibility for posts containing what the government deems misinformation or disinformation.And they specifically recoil as Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson worries that ruling against the feds will end up having "the First Amendment hamstringing the government in significant ways in the most important time periods." Andy and Greg stress that is the whole point of the First Amendment, and Andy explains the left's very disturbing trend of trying to make courts believe the Bill of Rights applies to the government the same way it does to individuals. Next, they look at Donald Trump's dilemma in New York City, where the former president says he cannot post the $454 million bond in the judgment against him in the civil fraud trial. Andy says this is an unusual case in that there are no alleged victims and he explains why the size of the judgment is absurdly high.Finally, they react to Washington state no longer requiring prospective attorneys to pass the bar exam, saying the test "disproportionally and unnecessarily blocks” marginalized groups from becoming attorneys. Andy may surprise you with his opinion about the necessity of the bar exam but he does worry about where the rationale for this change will eventually lead.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.  Moinkhttps://moinkbox.com/martiniVisit today to get one year of the best Bacon you’ll ever taste free.ZBioticshttps://zbiotics.com/3MLVisit today and save 15% at checkout with code 3ML.

Voters Reject Biden Migrant Flights, The Trump-Media 'Bloodbath', The Dems' Kamala Problem

Inez Stepman of the Independent Women's Forum and host of the "High Noon" podcast is in for Jim. Today, Inez and Greg discuss discerning voters, a thoroughly dishonest mainstream media, and the Dems getting awfully defensive about Kamala Harris. First, they welcome a new poll showing 60 percent of likely voters opposing the Biden administration flying hundreds of thousands of migrants into the U.S. who have no legal justification for being here. And 46 percent strongly oppose it. They also take time to slam Senate GOP leadership for being so out of touch with the public and even their own members by thinking the Senate immigration bill would be acceptable to most Republicans. Next, they dissect the absurdly dishonest media reporting that Donald Trump promised a "bloodbath" for this country if he is not elected in November, when the context of the quote makes it painfully obvious he was saying the auto industry would see a bloodbath if Biden gets four more years. They also discuss how there are a dwindling number of places to find the truth in situations like these. Finally, they get a kick out of the left excoriating anti-Trump Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker for suggesting Vice President Kamala Harris should step down from the ticket because the VP's deep unpopularity creates another liability for a president who has quite a few already. The response to Parker's suggestion consisted of the typical accusations of racism, misogyny, and everything except the actual merits of the argument. Inez explains why she finds it "beautiful" to see the left coming face-to-face with the reality that Harris was hired based on diversity instead of competence and the results are disastrous. Please visit our great sponsors: 4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now. ZBioticshttps://zbiotics.com/3MLVisit today and save 15% at checkout with code 3ML.

Bernie's Economic Pipe Dream, Blaming Beef for Droughts, Navigating the Electoral Doldrums

Undisputed King of Stuff, columnist, and longtime Ricochet Editor-in-Chief Jon Gabriel is in for Jim today as he and Greg serve up a full round of bad/crazy martinis after giving a well-deserved shoutout to Florida for showing it is possible to interdict illegal immigration.In their first crazy martini, they highlight Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders introducing legislation lowering the work week to just 32 hours but also demanding no drop in pay. In addition to the economic insanity, Jon points out that this runs afoul of America's strong work ethic.They also roll their eyes at the latest story suggesting Americans need to stop eating so much beef and dairy because it's supposedly responsible for the low water levels in the western U.S. because so much is needed to grow the plants that cattle eat. Jon and Greg are not buying that premise and suggest some more obvious reasons that water levels are down.Finally, they dig into Jon's latest column for Discourse magazine focusing on how man Americans are less than enthused about a Biden-Trump rematch. Jon explains what that apathy might mean in 2024 and why it's important to vote even if you don't love your options at the top of the ticket.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.  Fast Growing Treeshttps://fastgrowingtrees.com/martiniUse code Martini to save an additional 15% off on your first order.

Blowing up Dems' Voter ID Lies, Schumer Undermines Israel, Media Malpractice Over Haiti

Undisputed King of Stuff, columnist, and longtime Ricochet Editor-in-Chief Jon Gabriel is in for Jim today as he and Greg enjoy a fantastic good martini, an infuriating bad one, and more media insanity.First, Jon and Greg sit back and relish Texas Republican Rep. Wesley Hunt savaging the Democrats' talking points that requiring voters to present a photo ID to vote is somehow racist, discriminatory, or burdensome. Rep. Hunt effectively and cleverly refers to his own experience as a black man in procuring photo ID's and the proof in Georgia that secure elections don't equal voter suppression.Then, they unload on Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer for castigating Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from the Senate floor, with Schumer labeling Netanyahu an "obstacle to peace" and demanding new elections in Israel. And while he demands new elections and a change in Israeli leadership, Schumer assures us that the U.S. would never, ever interfere in those elections.Finally, they react with horror to the gang-fueled anarchy unfolding in Haiti and the humanitarian crisis that seems headed our way. But they also pause to note the insanity of NBC News blasting "right wing influencers" for pointing out some of these gangs have a history of cannibalism - rather than criticizing the gangs themselves.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.  Fast Growing Treeshttps://fastgrowingtrees.com/martiniUse code Martini to save an additional 15% off on your first order.

The Hur Report vs. the Hill, Bucking House GOP Leaders, Will RFK Jr. Run with Aaron Rodgers?

Former Chief Assistant U.S. Attorney and National Review Contributing Editor Andy McCarthy is in for Jim today. Andy and Greg dive into the law, congressional politics, and how the presidential campaign and the NFL might intersect this year.First, Andy analyzes Special Counsel Robert Hur's Tuesday testimony before the House Judiciary Committee. He explains why Adam Schiff was dead wrong to suggest Hur was playing politics by discussing Biden's faulty memory in his report on Biden's mishandling of classified information. He also dismisses Rep. Jayapal and others for wrongly insisting that the Hur report "exonerates" Biden, noting the facts of the report and that it's not the job of a prosecutor to exonerate anyone.But in reflecting on questions from the GOP side and the report itself, Andy outlines why he thinks Hur's ultimate conclusions were wrong.Next, they react to Colorado Rep. Ken Buck announcing his impending resignation from the House of Representatives. The move will leave the GOP with an even slimmer 218-213 margin with four special elections still to come. Andy suggests this move is quite telling about the battle for the future of the Republican Party.Finally, they get a kick out of reports that Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. is speaking "pretty continuously" with New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers about Rodgers serving as Kennedy's running mate for his independent presidential bid. Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.  Fast Growing Treeshttps://fastgrowingtrees.com/martiniUse code Martini to save an additional 15% off on your first order.

Hur's Testimony & Biden's Lies, Terrorists & Our Porous Border, 'Dumbed Down' Intel for Trump?

Former Chief Assistant U.S. Attorney and National Review Contributing Editor Andy McCarthy is in for Jim and provides a wealth of historical and first-hand context to our three topics today.First, Andy and Greg assess Special Counsel Robert Hur's testimony surrounding the timeline confusion in Biden's testimony over allegations that he mishandled classified information. Hur's testimony puts the lie to Biden's angry denunciation that he was asked when his son died. Instead, Biden volunteered it and got it wrong.Andy also points out that Biden was found to be mishandling sensitive information for decades, including his time in the Senate. And he explains why Biden being in possession of classified info from his Senate days proves that Biden - and not his staff - is responsible for him having those documents. He also provides critical background information into another notorious example of a Democrat being caught red-handed illegally taking classified information. Next, they shudder as FBI Director Christopher Wray confirms in Senate testimony that the bureau is actively investigating allegations that human smugglers with ties to ISIS are actively moving people at our southern border. Andy says this should come as no surprise and he shares the stunning immigration enforcement incompetence that allowed the terrorist mastermind of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing to enter the U.S. illegally - even after being directly linked to a high-profile assassination overseas.Finally, they zero in on California Rep. Adam Schiff suggesting that Donald Trump should received "dumbed down" intelligence reports as the GOP presidential nominee because of the classified charges pending against him. Andy says this would not be the first time the intel community played favorites in a presidential election involving Trump, and he recalls why Schiff is the least credible advocate for this argument against the former president.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.Fast Growing Treeshttps://fastgrowingtrees.com/martiniUse code Martini to save an additional 15% off on your first order.

Snickers Bites Back at Biden, DEI Derailing U.S. Semiconductor Plants, The VA's VJ-Day Insanity

Inez Stepman of the Independent Women's Forum and host of the "High Noon" podcast is in for Jim. Today, Inez and Greg discuss three stories featuring insanity - or attempted insanity - from the Biden administration.First, they applaud Snickers for calling out President Biden's falsehoods about the company's alleged "shrinkflation" practices. They not only discuss Biden's obvious efforts to distract from his own inflationary policies but his decades-long practice of trying to convince low-information voters that he's actually the stronger choice on issues like border security.Next, they dig into the infuriating story of how the Biden administration is undermining the CHIPS Act and efforts to manufacture semiconductors here in the U.S. by saddling companies with absurd DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) mandates for hiring and more. As a result, companies are delaying or scrapping plans to build new plants here. Biden and his people are choosing a radical agenda over national security.Finally, they highlight the story the Department of Veterans Affairs wishes would just vanish. A memo was drafted ordering the removal of the famous photo of the sailor and nurse kissing in Times Square from VA facilities. The photo depicts the jubilation after the Japanese surrendered in August 1945, meaning World War II was over. Why did the VA try to ban the photo? Because the kiss was "non-consensual" and therefore runs afoul of the Justice Department's current definition of sexual assault. The policy was quickly scrapped by VA Secretary Denis McDonough after an intense & immediate public backlash.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.  Fast Growing Treeshttps://fastgrowingtrees.com/martiniUse code Martini to save an additional 15% off on your first order.

Breaking Down Biden's State of the Union

We've had all good martinis and all crazy martinis this week. So it makes sense that Jim and Greg close the week with all bad martinis as they assess President Biden's State of the Union address and the Republican response. First, they note that Biden responded to criticism that he often comes off as low energy and mentally meandering by showing up angry, talking quickly, and turning the speech into more of a convention address than what the event is supposed to be. But Jim says if the Biden team was trying to invigorate the left-wing base, it may have helped him politically. They also highlight his inappropriate trash talking of the Supreme Court and his fiction over deficit spending.Then, they take aim at Biden's ill-conceived idea of building a pier on or near the Gaza coast to bring in humanitarian relief. And while Biden says there will be no American "boots on the ground," if they're anywhere close, this is a very bad idea. Jim also asserts that this move is simply Biden's efforts to win back Muslim voters in Michigan. Finally, they're less than thrilled with the GOP performance on Thursday. They discuss the excellent content in the official response from Alabama Sen. Katie Britt but debate whether the emotional delivery was effective. Moreover, given the late start to the Biden speech, Jim suspects the nation's opinion of the Republicans will be based more on Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's disruptions of Biden than the actual response.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.

Classified Info & A Really Dumb 'Boyfriend', Katie Porter's Sour Grapes, Schumer Soft on Menendez

Buckle up for three crazy martinis today!First, Jim and Greg laugh in bewilderment as a former U.S. Air Force officer is indicted for sharing classified information over a foreign dating website with someone he thought was a woman in Ukraine. And her demands for the information were not exactly subtle.Then they roll their eyes as California Rep. Katie Porter accuses billionaires of spending millions of dollars to "rig" the California Senate primary, in which she finished a distant third. And her efforts to clarify that comment did not help her case.Finally, they hammer Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer for failing to pursue any consequences for heavily-indicted Democrat Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey. Not only does he refuse to demand a resignation, but Schumer still allows Menendez to receive classified briefings after being charged with corruption and bribery in connection to foreign countries.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.

Trump & Biden Roll on Super Tuesday, GOP Reaches California Senate Runoff, Sinema Calls It Quits

Join Jim and Greg as they break down a big day in politics from Super Tuesday to the balance in the U.S. Senate.First, they acknowledge what we all expected - that Donald Trump and Joe Biden would virtually lock up their respective nominations on Tuesday - punctuated by Nikki Haley suspending her campaign Wednesday morning. But they do note that bewildering win by Democrat Jason Palmer in American Samoa & highlight the smugness of the MSNBC panel over Virginia Republicans naming immigration as their top concern. And Jim explains how he would restructure the primary season so that more voters in more states would have a say while the campaign is still competitive.Then they break down the results of the jungle primary in California. They're disgusted that Adam Schiff not only advanced to the general election but will be the heavy favorite. They also note former Dodgers and Padres star Steve Garvey taking the second spot behind Schiff. And hey are very pleased to see far left Reps. Katie Porter and Barbara Lee lose and be out of Congress entirely next year.Finally, they dissect the impact of Arizona Independent Sen. Kyrsten Sinema announcing she will not run for re-election this year. While still disagreeing with Sinema on most issues, they see her six years as somewhat of a pleasant surprise for her willingness to defend the legislative filibuster in the Senate. But they also note that a far left Dem is now likely favored to win her seat.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.

UN Confirms Hamas Rapes, Biden Flew Illegals Into U.S., Saving Democracy By Strangling It

After a lovely day of all good martinis, there's plenty of bad and crazy for Jim and Greg today. And even the good martini is not pleasant.First, the welcome the United Nations taking five months to confirm what we all saw on October 7th last year - that Hamas used rape and other sexual assault as weapons of war. However, the UN also concluded that Hamas is still likely using these heinous tactics against the hostages.Next, a two-part bad martini highlighting President Biden's dereliction at the border and new evidence that his administration deliberately and actively flew illegals into the country. They dissect a Daily Mail report detailing how the administration admits, through a Freedom of Information request, that it flew hundreds of thousands of people (with no legal right to enter our nation) to 43 different airports in the U.S. during 2023 alone.But they also point out a recent segment on "60 Minutes," in which former Customs and Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz says he never had a conversation with President Biden or Vice President Kamala Harris during his two years on the job from 2021-2023.Finally, Jim and Greg unload on figures at the Lincoln Project and The Bulwark for their unhinged rhetoric aimed at No Labels, the group looking for a third party candidate to run for president this year. Reporting from Byron York quotes Rick Wilson of the Lincoln Project saying No Labels needed to be "burned to the (expletive deleted) ground politically." Jonathan Last of The Bulwark publicly said anyone affiliated with No Labels should "have their lives ruined," including losing their jobs and much more.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.

SCOTUS Rules Trump Stays on Ballot, Univ. of Florida Kills DEI, Oregon Backtracks on Hard Drugs

It's nothing but good martinis for Jim and Greg on Monday's 3 Martini Lunch!First, Jim declares vindication after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 9-0 that Donald Trump must be allowed on the Colorado GOP primary ballot after that state's supreme court kicked him off based on the insurrection clause of Section 3 in the 14th Amendment. Jim says without a conviction or even an indictment for insurrection, taking such action against Trump was a very weak legal position.Next, they welcome the University of Florida eliminating DEI ("Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion") programs and personnel. It's not only the right move but it also showcases the leadership of Gov. Ron DeSantis getting this policy through the Florida legislature and University of Florida Pres. Ben Sasse for implementing it.Finally, they cheer Oregon for correcting a 2020 referendum that decriminalized personal use amounts of drugs, including hard drugs like meth and heroin. Oregon subsequently fell to 50th in access to drug treatment and witnesses a spike in overdoses. Jim says this is another example of how reality did not turn out anything like the experts insisted it would.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.

Biden's Actual Border Beliefs, Herridge Harassed Over Reporting Again, Senate GOP Leader Race Already Starting

Jim and Greg serve up a clarifying good martini plus conventional bad and crazy ones to wind up the week.First, they offer a timely reminder of Biden's promises from 2020 on border security, sanctuary cities, and who ought to be deported. The comments explain why we saw the border crisis explode on his watch and suggest his recent get tough approach is only a political maneuver.They also cringe as stellar national security reporter Catherine Herridge is ordered to pay fines of $800 per day for refusing to divulge her sources on a story connection a U.S.-based scientist with the Chinese Communist Party.Finally, they groan in reaction to the race already beginning to replace Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell, even though the conference elections aren't until November, we have no idea how many Republicans will be in the Senate, and how many current ones will still be there.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.BIOptimizershttps://magbreakthrough.com/martinifreeGet your Free 14-day supply of Magnesium Breakthrough today!Fast Growing Treeshttps://fastgrowingtrees.comUse code MARTINI to save an additional 15% off.

McConnell's Last Year as Leader, Newsom's Shady Favoritism, Trump vs. Biden at the Border

Join Jim and Greg for three important martinis ranging from the U.S. Senate to the border to cronyism in politics.First, they react to Sen. Mitch McConnell announcing this will be his final year as Senate Republican leader. They break down McConnell's record on reshaping the U.S. Supreme Court by pushing through the nominations of Justices Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Coney Barrett. They dig into his willingness to be the villain to protect other GOP members, but also the frustration conservatives have with his failure to fight harder for less spending and not being more aggressive on certain policy goals. And, of course, they preview the fight to replace McConnell as leader.Then they document the shady exemption to California's new law raising the minimum wage for fast food workers from $16 to $20 per hour for establishments that bake their own bread on site and sell it individually. This seems to be a specific carve out for Gov. Gavin Newsom's friend and donor who owns a bunch of Panera franchises in the state.Finally, they assess today's dueling border visits from Biden and Trump, what we can glean by the different areas of the border they are visiting, and why Biden's eagerness to reverse anything Trump did in office is coming back to bite him hardest at the border.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.

But they were glad to see the U.S., Great Britain, and Germany immediately shoot down the notion that such a move was on the table..Then, they dig into a Washington Free Beacon story about how the border crisis is overwhelming a small, fairly progressive community in Whitewater, Wisconsin. The city is scrambling for money after services for migrants put it in a $400,000 budget bind. Meanwhile, drug activity and STD's are on the rise. And this is happening in plenty of other communities in this country.Finally, they scratch their heads as President Biden told reporters that he thinks an Israel-Hamas ceasefire will be in place this weekend. Yet the Israelis, Hamas, and Qatar all publicly say there hasn't been much progress at all on any of the major issues that need to be addressed before a pause in fighting can happen,Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.

NYC Mayor Wants Criminal Aliens Deported, No Blame for Sec. Austin Going AWOL, Hijackings & Protests

Lloyd Austin and his staff to inform President Biden and many other relevant personnel for several days when Austin was in the hospital last month determines there should be no reprimands given out because no one intended any harm.Finally, in the wake of the U.S. Air Force service member who fatally set himself on fire to protest U.S. and Israeli policy towards Gaza, they marvel at the viral online lament that people aren't allowed to protest, march, or go on hunger strikes (all untrue) which then adds hijacking rioting, and throwing Molotov cocktails to the same list.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.

Policy Failures That Facilitated Murder, Ronna's Awkward RNC Exit, Why Haley Would Be a 3rd Party Flop

There are no good martinis to start the week but Jim and Greg are ready to dig into one horrifically bad martini and two crazy ones.First, they're incensed over the death of nursing student Laken Riley, allegedly at the hands of a Venezuelan man who entered the U.S. illegally. In addition, the suspect was arrested for assaulting a child in New York City but officials there released him before Immigration and Customs Enforcement could take him into custody. In addition, rather than focus on either of those policy problems, the mainstream media quickly decided that the real story here is that women face risks when jogging alone and, of course, that Republicans are pouncing on this terrible news.Next, they get a kick out of RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel announcing she will resign in the next couple of weeks and trying to make us believe that major party chairs regularly step down in the middle of a presidential election year.Finally, there is increasing buzz about former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley running as a third party candidate.

Join Jim and Greg as they return to their usual good, bad, and crazy martinis and head into the weekend!First, they welcome the decision from a New York appeals court that New York City's efforts to allow 800,000 non-citizens to vote in local elections is unconstitutional. Limiting voting to citizens is a no-brainer but Jim fears this issue will eventually wind up at the U.S. Supreme Court.Next, they react to the news that CBS not only laid off stellar reporter Catherine Herridge but seized her files, computers, and records, including information about confidential sources. Even SAG-AFTRA is denouncing CBS in very strong terms. Just how big of a threat is this to the freedom of the press?Finally, they shake their heads as former Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill (who is now an MSNBC contributor) blasts the New York Times for fact-checking President Biden because she thinks they aren't aggressive enough in calling out Donald Trump's falsehoods. This feeds into the maddening view of some on the left who genuinely see the role the media as doing everything it can to help Biden and defeat Trump.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.

A 'Final Solution' for Israel? Way Too Many Think RFK Jr. is His Dad, Biden & Commander

Sit back and enjoy all crazy martinis today, as Jim and Greg survey cringeworthy stories from the United Nations to the campaign trail to the White House.First, they sigh as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Linda Thomas-Greenfield says from a prepared statement she is pursuing a ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas war and will tirelessly pursue diplomacy "until we reach a final solution." Does no one in her office have a decent grasp on history or have the sense to take that phrasing out of her comments?Not to be outdone in the dim bulb department, a poll taken after the pro-Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. ad during the Super Bowl reveals that 36 percent of likely voters think that RFK Jr. is actually his father, Robert F. Kennedy, who ran for president in 1968 and was assassinated during that campaign. Finally, reports confirm that Pres. Biden's dog, Commander, is responsible for 24 biting incidents - mostly against Secret Service agents - and nearly half of them required medical attention. This is the second Biden dog known for its rampant biting, and while Jim says this isn't the most critical issue facing our nation, it does reveal some disturbing trends.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.

Jewish Voters Bailing on Biden? Stubborn Food Inflation, Ezra Klein Tells Joe to Go

Join Jim and Greg for three compelling martinis focusing on major 2024 headaches for Joe Biden, with a bit of relevant pop culture thrown in.First, they're stunned by a new Siena College poll showing Donald Trump ahead of Joe Biden by nine points among Jewish voters in New York. Given Biden's 38-point win among Jewish voters four years ago, that would be a major shift in response to Biden's handling of the Hamas terrorist attacks, the ensuing war, and the rampant anti-Semitism expressed on college campuses and beyond.Next, they dig into the ever-worsening problem of food inflation. While year-over-year inflation is down from 40-year highs, we're still paying for all of those increases. Plus, restaurant and grocery costs are still rising and having a very real, devastating impact on American families.Finally, even lefty Ezra Klein is urging Biden to pack up and head off into retirement. Beyond the question of whether the president can do the job for another four years, Klein says Biden isn't even in shape to campaign this year.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.

Biden Mulls Border Orders, Debt Interest Exceeds Defense Spending, Labeling Biden as 'Great'

Join Jim and Greg as they break down what Biden is reportedly considering on the border, the interest on our debt rapidly spiraling out of control, and an ex-GOP campaign figure telling Dems to declare Biden a "great" president.First, they assess an Axios story about how Biden is considering executive action that could significantly reduce the number of people illegally flooding into our country. He allegedly wants to claim that he taking action on the issue while Republicans just talk about it. Taking this action would not only confirm what conservatives have been screaming this for years about executive action, but, if done right, would actually do some good - even if it's only an election year ploy.Then they fume at the news that paying off the quickly accumulating interest on our $34 trillion+ national debt will cost more than defense spending this year. Higher interest rates are the reason for the higher payments, but reckless spending is the reason that higher interest rates were needed. And neither party has any interest in even discussing possible remedies for our debt.Finally, they get a big laugh out of former Republican campaign official turned Lincoln Project figure Stuart Stevens pleading with Democrats to go beyond arguing that Biden is preferable to Trump and start declaring Biden to be a "great" president.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.

Red States & the Economy, State Dept. IG Probes Biden's Iran Envoy, Egypt Fed Up with Hamas

Please pause your celebrations of Benjamin Harrison and James Buchanan on this Presidents Day and join Jim and Greg for good, bad, and crazy martinis.First, after a few opening thoughts on how celebrating Washington and Lincoln has now been diluted into recognizing all presidents and how we can reverse this, Jim and Greg dig into an ABC News report on how the strongest states economically are predominantly red states. However, the story spends much more time asserting that better weather and progressive cities in red states are the key to success and attracting more businesses and employees. However, the real reasons are simple: lower taxes, right to work laws, and less regulation.They also welcome a more formal State Department Inspector General investigation into the rather abrupt dismissal and stripping of security clearance for Biden's Iran envoy, Robert Malley. The Semafor story breaking the news also lays out red flags concerning Malley before Biden even took office. Finally, they welcome Egypt's foreign minister getting fed up with Hamas for refusing to recognize Israel and failing to renounce its genocidal tactics in order to bring a ceasefire to the area.And please enjoy the Presidents Day special Jim and I did about four underappreciated presidents back in 2020. https://www.spreaker.com/episode/america-s-underappreciated-presidents--22780285Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.

Fani's Crumbling Credibility, Biden's Denial Debunked, Chicago's Criminal Incompetence

Jim Geraghty is back today as he and Greg serve up three compelling martinis to close out the week!First, they take a look what seems to be the devastating case exposing the lying and corruption of Fulton County, Georgia, District Attorney Fani Willis. She is now in serious legal danger after lying about the details of her personal relationship with a man she hired to prosecute former President Trump on racketeering charges. Even more serious, her lover paid for their lavish vacations on the office's credit card. He and Willis claim she reimbursed him in cash so there no way way to confirm it.They also groan as President Biden is either caught in another lie or another senior moment. Just days after Biden denied forgetting when his son died and claimed to remember being angry that he was even asked about it, NBC News reports that the special counsel did not ask about it. Biden brought it up and got it wrong. They also discuss how Biden's enraged tough guy act is pathetic and tiresome.Finally, they highlight the criminal incompetence of Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson. This week, Johnson said he was ending the city's contract with ShotSpotter, the audio technology that alerts police when and where gunshots are fired. Johnson also said he planned to keep the technology until after this summer's Democratic National Convention. But the company says without a contract, it's shutting down the service today.Please visit our great sponsors:BIOptimizershttps://bioptimizers.com/martinifreeGet your Free 14-day supply of Magnesium Breakthrough today!4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.

Putin Prefers Biden, Is U.S. Ammo Dependent on the Ukraine Bill? The War on Coffee Rages On

Undisputed King of Stuff, columnist, and longtime Ricochet Editor-in-Chief Jon Gabriel is in for Jim today.Today, Jon and Greg react to Russian President Vladimir Putin saying he prefers President Biden over former President Trump, calling Biden "more experienced and more predictable." Trump calls it a compliment while Biden supporters say Putin is trying some reverse psychology. They also recoil as Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell tells National Review he doesn't know how U.S. ammunition and ordnance will get replenished unless the Ukraine aid bill gets passed. Regardless of what anyone thinks of assistance for Ukraine, why in the world is our own national security dependent on this legislation?Finally, Jon takes an extra shot of espresso as he flays the latest efforts to urge people to stay away from coffee. Last time, the fun police said coffee was harming the planet. Now they claim caffeine is dangerous to your health.

Mayorkas Impeached, Dems Gain House Seat, $50 Minimum Wage?

Join Jim and Greg as they tackle two big stories involving the House of Representatives and an absurd idea from a California U.S. Senate candidate that would plunge us into economic disaster.First, they're pleased to see the Republicans muster just enough votes to impeach Homeland Security Sec. Alejandro Mayorkas. It would have been much better to get this done right the first time and Mayorkas will undoubtedly be acquitted in the Senate, but the impeachment is richly deserved and it gives Republicans a chance to highlight the Biden border chaos during an impeachment trial.Then they sigh as the Democrats comfortably pick up another House seat as former Rep. Tom Suozzi wins the seat vacated by the expulsion of Republican Rep. George Santos. Donald Trump says the GOP candidate didn't embrace him enough. Other critics suggest the party is too closely identified with Trump and dysfunction in Washington. So what does this tell us might be coming in in November?Finally, they shake their heads as California Rep. Barbara Lee calls for a $50 per hour minimum wage in the latest California U.S. Senate debate and explain why her plan would create an economic catastrophe.Please visit our great sponsors:BIOptimizershttps://bioptimizers.com/martinifreeGet your Free 14-day supply of Magnesium Breakthrough today!4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.

Three Martinis with Dana Perino

Today, Jim and Greg once again take the rare step of bringing a special guest to the 3 Martini Lunch. Today, they welcome in former White House Press Secretary Dana Perino, who is now co-host of "The Five" and "America's Newsroom" on the Fox News Channel. She was also a moderator for one of the Republican presidential primary debates.They begin with a discussion of the White House press office, how Perino approached the job during the final years of the George W. Bush administration, how Karine Jean-Pierre is handling the duties, and where the blame properly lies for the communications problems within the Biden White House.Next, they turn to the 2024 presidential campaign and why Perino believes the report from Special Counsel Robert Hur amounts to the "death knell" for the Biden re-election campaign. They also examine how to maintain viewer interest when the major party primaries are very one-sided, and her thoughts after seeing the results of the Nevada GOP primary.Finally, they reflect upon Perino's opportunity to co-moderate one of the Republican primary presidential debates, what it was like to be in the middle of the fray, and why she believes the current format of debates no longer serve the public well.Please visit our great sponsors:BIOptimizershttps://bioptimizers.com/martinifreeGet your Free 14-day supply of Magnesium Breakthrough today!4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.

Scandal-Free Super Bowl, Rep. Gallagher Calls It Quits, Biden's Bogus 'Shrinkflation' Argument

Join Jim and Greg as they share some thoughts on the Super Bowl and dive into two big political stories.First, they have generally positive reviews of the Super Bowl, other than the fact that the game seemed to last forever. They were pleased there was no officiating controversy that played a huge role in deciding the game like there was last year and we didn't seem to be inundated with too much woke indoctrination in the ads.Then, they wince as Wisconsin Rep. Mike Gallagher surprisingly announces he will retire from Congress at the end of this year. While clearly disagreeing with Gallagher's decision to vote against impeaching Homeland Security Sec. Alejandro Mayorkas, they point out Gallagher is usually a very reliable conservative vote and he is doing good work exposing the threat that the Chinese Communist Party poses to the United States.Finally, they hammer President Biden's low-energy, mumbling nonsense about how he is fed up with "shrinkflation" and companies charging the same amount for less product. Not only does Biden pretend this isn't directly related to his inflationary policies but Jim points out that this exposes his own false narrative about the supposed success of "Bidenomics."Please visit our great sponsors:BIOptimizershttps://bioptimizers.com/martinifreeGet your Free 14-day supply of Magnesium Breakthrough today!4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.

Joe Biden's Damage Control Disaster

Join Jim and Greg as they break down many aspects of what may be one of the most damaging days to Joe Biden's presidency.First, they begin with the news that Special Counsel Robert Hur is recommending no charges against Biden despite his conclusion that Biden "willfully retained and disclosed classified material.” But Biden's day got much worse very fast when Hur said one of the reasons there would be no charges is because a jury would likely see Biden as "a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory," who could not remember when exactly he was vice president or when his son, Beau, died. That left the Biden team crowing about the absence of charges but denouncing one the of the key arguments about why there should be no charges.Then they break down the disastrous Biden press conference, in which he denied disclosing any classified material, blamed any improper storage of classified documents on his staff, and then wrongly said Abdel Fattah El-Sisi was president of Mexico instead of Egypt.Finally, they shake their heads at assertions that the reporters at the press conference were behaving in an "awful" and "revolting" manner and wonder what Biden's communications team was thinking setting up this press conference in the first place.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.

Dems vs. Biden on Natural Gas, Sen. Murphy's Stunning Admission, Biden's Chats with Dead People

Join Jim and Greg for three very revealing martinis today. First, they welcome Democrats from Pennsylvania and Ohio begging President Biden to reconsider his pause on liquefied natural gas exports to some countries because it's bad for their states' economies - not to mention an obvious effort to pander to environmental activists.Then they're stunned to see Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy admit on national television that "undocumented Americans" are the "people we care about most" in the immigration debate. But as as absurd as that thinking is, Jim thinks Murphy just handed Republicans a huge gift for this election cycle.Finally, they chronicle how President Biden's verbal stumbles, lapses in memory, and overall mental decline are now obvious multiple times per day. The latest examples include forgetting the name of Hamas and repeated telling a story from 2021 and referencing leaders from France and Germany who not only haven't held office this century but have been dead for years.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.

Ronna Resigning from RNC, House GOP Humiliation, Trump Wants Bud Light Truce

Join Jim and Greg as they document the potential good news and definitely bad and crazy news for the Republican Party.First, they react to the news that Republican National Committee Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel will reportedly resign following the GOP South Carolina primary later this month. They chronicle her very unimpressive record on elections, fundraising, and leadership, and how tough the job will be for whoever follows her.Then, they grimace as House Republicans fail to pass two very high-profile pieces of legislation on Tuesday, namely the impeachment of Homeland Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and military aid for Israel. It is a very slim majority for the GOP, but knowing whether you have the votes to pass things is should be obvious.Finally, they're unimpressed as Donald Trump suddenly says it's time to let bygones be bygones with Bud Light after the Dylan Mulvaney fiasco from last year, because he thinks Anheuser-Busch is a good company. But there seem to be other reasons for this sudden declaration.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.

Dartmouth Reconsiders the SAT, Iran Not Fazed by U.S. Response, Left's Laughable Border Talk

Join Jim and Greg as they dive into three big martinis today!First, they welcome Dartmouth's decision to once again use the SAT as a factor in admissions. Not only is it one of several valuable tools when considering an application, but Jim's reporting also shows that efforts to get rid of the SAT actually hurt minority applicants.Next, they groan as the U.S. military response of warning Iran when and where our airstrikes would happen obviously did nothing to correct Iran's antagonistic behavior - as evidenced by another attack that killed six people working alongside the U.S.Finally, they get a good laugh from Democrats pretending they care about having a secure border and trying to position themselves as the hawks and Republicans as obstructionists if the GOP opposes one particular bill.

Biden Trounced on Key Issues, Horrible Border Bill, Dem Voters Ignore Alternatives

Join Jim and Greg as they dissect horrible polling numbers for President Biden, an easy win for him in the South Carolina primary, and the absolute non-starter of a border security bill.First, they dig through an NBC poll showing Biden not only trailing Donald Trump but getting trounced by large margins on issues ranging from border security to the economy to crime to America's standing in the world. And the approval numbers for Vice President Kamala Harris are even worse than Biden's.They also shudder as the early warnings about the contents of a border security bill are proven accurate - from allowing nearly 5,000 illegal entries per day in perpetuity to liberally issued work permits for those waiting to have their alleged asylum claims ruled upon.Finally, polling regularly shows that Democrats are leery about having President Biden as their nominee again in 2024 but you'd never know it by how easily he crushed his low-profile rivals in Saturday's South Carolina primary. Turnout may have been exceedingly low, but it's obvious that neither of his challengers provide much appeal for the base.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniStay connected with the Patriot Power Solar Generator 2000X on sale now.

They also discuss the potential political impact of reports like this on the 2024 campaign and some additional caveats to the strong numbers.Then they sigh as squad member and Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley accuses Walgreen's of racial discrimination for closing a second store in her district instead of exploring what other reasons the company would have for shutting down that location.Finally, they fume after a shocking report from Red State shows how the Republican National Committee recklessly spent of money on flowers, limousines, consultants, and office supplies, while the Democratic National Committee focused expenditures on Get Out the Vote campaigns, maintaining voter files, and helping other Dem organizations.

Whether it's really under consideration or just a diplomatic tool to pressure Israel, Jim and Greg explain why this is a terrible idea.Then they groan as far left radicals Rashida Tlaib and Cori Bush are the only two House members to oppose a resolution barring members of Hamas and Islamic Jihad from coming to the U.S. - as well as anyone else proven to be part of the October 7th attacks against Israel.Finally, they shake their heads as District of Columbia Attorney General Brian Schwalb says arrests and prosecutions are not going to solve the rampant carjackings and other crimes engulfing our nation's capital.

Instead of just ignoring it if that happens, the former president's team seems committed to the worst possible strategy.Then it's on to the good martini as the House Homeland Security Committee approves two articles of impeachment against Homeland Security Sec. Alejandro Mayorkas, who has incessantly lied to the American people about the border being secure and under control - and has done nothing to stem the tide of people entering the U.S. ilegally.Next, they get a kick out of an Iran-backed militia group, that was likely behind the deadly attack on U.S. forces in Jordan, saying it won't attack any more so there's no need for a U.S. military response. Sorry terrorists, it doesn't work that way!Finally, they recoil at prominent Silicon Valley figure Bryan Johnson not only trying to stay alive for hundreds of years, but now saying he wants us to "divorce from all human norms, all human customs, and all human thought" and turn us into "blank slates."Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniCatch the deal of the day before it is gone!

Join Jim and Greg today for the return of the good martini, a very important bad one, and a highly-spirited crazy martini that either indicates a sinister left-wing plot, the rescue of Western Civilization, or just maybe, something in between.First, they are pleasantly surprised to see a serious prosecution and sentencing for the IRS contractor who leaked President Trump tax returns to the media.Then, they're a bit puzzled as to why the Pentagon is so sure that Iran doesn't want war with the U.S. But Jim also fumes as President Biden refuses to make any public statement on American forces being killed by Iranian proxies but will likely address it and the U.S. response to donors at a private dinner tonight in Florida.Finally, Jim and Greg address the notion that the Taylor Swift-Travis Kelce relationship is a psychological operation orchestrated by Democrats and is designed to help Biden get re-elected. They explain why the psy-op theory doesn't hold up, which cynical theory makes more sense, and what to conclude if the relationship is genuine.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniCatch the deal of the day before it is gone!

What is the best way to punish Iran now since President Biden's "proportionate" approach did not deter the first 150 attacks?Then they cringe as White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre completely mangles a short message of condolences for the families of the American personnel killed in Jordan and even suggests our military fights for the Biden administration.Finally, they dissect the latest insanity from Minnesota Rep.

The court did not demand an immediate ceasefire, which South Africa had requested.They also groan as President Biden suspends liquefied natural gas exports to certain nations due to climate change concerns. Andy explains how this is a major giveaway to Russia and they both shake their heads over how Biden appears to be caving to environmental activists in pretending that natural gas is bad for the planet.Finally, they get a kick out of a Yale University law professor arguing that the self-described originalists on the Supreme Court must boot Donald Trump from the ballot or they will be hypocrites and...of course...the legitimacy of the Supreme Court will be damaged.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniCatch the deal of the day before it is gone!Bioptimizershttps://bioptimizers.com/martiniUse promo code MARTINI for 10% off your order.

Abbott vs. Biden at the Border, Zero Palestinians Reject Hamas Attacks, Trump Warns Haley Donors

Greg Abbott insisting that Texas will keep defending the border because the Biden administration has chosen not to, and he says the Constitution is clearly on his side. Meanwhile, some Democrats want President Biden to take federal control of the Texas National Guard because Abbott is allegedly defying an order from the U.S. Supreme Court.Then they recoil at a new poll out of the West Bank. They expected a disturbingly high percentage of residents there to consider the October attacks by Hamas against Israel to be "legitimate resistance." They were not ready for zero percent of them to say it was "illegitimate resistance." How do you hope to ever reach any sort of stability when virtually all people there think what Hamas did was OK.Finally, they scratch their heads as Donald Trump lashes out at Nikki Haley donors and says that, going forward, anyone who donates to her is banished from MAGA forever.

Dean Phillips for getting nearly 20 percent of the vote on the Democrats' side even though the primary was non-binding. They also appreciate him being only one of the few Democrats bothering to speak with Trump supporters and not writing them off as unredeemable like President Biden often does.Then they react to Donald Trump's double-digit win over Nikki Haley in the Republican primary. And with Haley winning a large majority of unaffiliated voters, does this indicate that these voters are gettable for the GOP or were they just creating mischief?Finally, they react to conflicting reports that Vladimir Putin is seeking to restore additional territory that once belonged to Russia - including Alaska.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniCatch the deal of the day before it is gone!

DeSantis Drops Out, Protesters & First Amendment Fallacies, Elites Hate Your Freedom

Join Jim and Greg as they start the week with three bad martinis, although the last one also contains a whole lot of crazy.The start with the inevitable but disappointing news that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is suspending his campaign. It's hard to think of candidates with stronger conservative principles and a record of accomplishment, but there were serious flaws with the campaign and there was one simple fact DeSantis had no chance of overcoming.They also fume as Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport sent out a tweet on Saturday warning travelers of pro-Palestinian demonstrators blocking roads around the airport. But the airport also called them a "group in vehicles exercising first amendment rights." But that is completely untrue. So why do these radical activists not suffer any consequences?Finally, they shudder at new polling showing that most Americans think government has too much control while the elites and Ivy League graduates overewhelmingly think there is too much individual freedom. And just wait until you hear what they advocate to fight "climate change."Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniCatch the deal of the day before it is gone!

EV Drivers Left in the Cold, Biden's Obvious Decline, The War on Rat Traps

Join Jim and Greg as they serve up two bad martinis and an obvious crazy one!First, they urge states and the federal government to slam the brakes on the electric vehicle movement after the recent cold snap found EV drivers in Chicago with rapidly depleting batteries, needing to constantly spend time recharging, with some left without functioning batteries at all.Then they offer a double-fisted bad martini as President Biden shows more evidence he's completely unfit for the presidency. They note his bewildering statement about airstrikes on the Houthis not stopping Houthi aggression in the Red Sea but insisting the strikes would continue anyway. Then he gives a speech mentioning that he just took a photo with a local congresswoman only to remember a moment later that the lawmaker wasn't even there.Finally, they have fun with California Rep. Ted Lieu leading America in the charge against...glue traps to catch rodents. Jim wonders what's really behind the legislation and the whole farce reminds them of a campaign from years ago.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniCatch the deal of the day before it is gone!

Milei's Free Market Master Class, FBI Snooping on Purchases, Speaker Johnson on Thin Ice?

Undisputed King of Stuff, columnist, and longtime Ricochet Editor-in-Chief Jon Gabriel is in for Jim today. He and Greg have three doozies for martinis today.First, they loudly cheer new Argentina President Javier Milei for going to the World Economic Forum in Davos and boldly championing free markets and denouncing excessive government regulation and collectivist policies. Why aren't more American conservatives able to defend freedom and condemn government intrusion so well?Next, they hammer the FBI for snooping on our purchases and searches (without warrants of course) and apparently determining that people who shop at Cabela's, read the Bible, or support Donald Trump are some sort of threat.Finally, they roll their eyes and unload on a few House Republicans for threatening to boot House Speaker Mike Johnson for agreeing to another continuing resolution on federal spending. The frustration is certainly understandable but, for multiple reasons, simple math tells us that vacating the chair won't solve anything.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniCatch the deal of the day before it is gone!

Biden's Big Trouble with the Base, U.S. Still Too Soft on Houthis, Clueless in Tampa

Join Jim and Greg for good and bad martinis focused on politics and world affairs followed by a fun crazy martini!After briefly congratulating Asa Hutchinson for finally recognizing reality and ending his White House bid, they dig into new poll numbers in the swing state of Georgia showing President Biden eight points behind Donald Trump and even doing very badly among women and black voters. His negatives are sky high and some usually reliable Democrats say they plan to stay home.Then they bang their heads on their desks as the Biden administration finally decides to label the Iran-backed Houthis as terrorists (as they were during the Trump years) but Biden is applying a different terrorist label that carries much less harsh consequences than the previous designation did.Finally, they take a bit of a break from politics to get a laugh from yesterday's press conference in Tampa, as a reporter asks Buccaneers Head Coach Todd Bowles if he has plans acclimate his team for cold weather when it plays in Detroit on Sunday - apparently having no idea that Detroit has played indoors since 1975.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniCatch the deal of the day before it is gone!Bioptimizershttps://bioptimizers.com/martiniUse promo code MARTINI for 10% off your order.

Trump Landslide in Iowa, The Media Jump the Gun, Vivek Calls It Quits

Join Jim and Greg as they dissect Donald Trump's dominating win in the GOP Iowa Caucuses. It was a convincing blowout. Trump's margin of victory was considerably bigger than the vote totals for either Ron DeSantis or Nikki Haley. Is the fight for the Republican nomination already over or is there still a chance for a real fight? They also scold the media for completely jumping the gun and declaring Trump the winner in Iowa before all caucus attendees had a chance to vote. It would not have changed the outcome in any way but it was still irresponsible.Finally, just days after vowing to run in all 50 states and predicting a two-term presidency, Vivek Ramaswamy finishes in a distant fourth place and ends his campaign.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniCatch the deal of the day before it is gone!

Biden Numbers Plummet Again, Senate GOP Border Surrender? Kerry to Biden's Rescue?

Join Jim and Greg as they tee up three big martinis as we all wait for results in the Iowa Caucuses tonight. FIrst, they're thankful Jim was finally able to return home from Iowa. Then they dive into a new ABC poll showing President Biden at just 33 percent approval and 58 percent of Americans disapproving. And less than 30 percent think he mentally or physically up to the job.Then, they're horrified by reports indicating that Oklahoma Sen. James Lankford is about to surrender to Democrats on an immigration bill that would only make the border crisis even worse.

Hillsdale College Radio General Manager and Radio Free Hillsdale Hour Host Scot Bertram is in for Jim. Today, Scot and Greg are glad to see Hertz recognizing reality and dumping 20,000 electric vehicles after seeing higher than expected costs related to repairs and collision damage. And this after Hertz committed to have EV's comprise a quarter of its total fleet by the end of the year.They also groan as blue states refuse to learn the lesson that higher taxes make people leave for states with better tax policies. Instead, they just jack up tax rates even more to try to compensate for the lost revenues.Finally, they laugh and shake their heads as Chicago Public Schools lose 77,000 laptops and other devices in one school year at tremendous cost to the taxpayers.

Join Jim and Greg as they break down the biggest developments in the presidential race, stubbornly high inflation, and a pivotal day in sports. First, they dissect former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's decision to suspend his 2024 presidential campaign but not endorse anyone else and trash Ron DeSantis and Nikki Haley in addition to Donald Trump.They also cringe as the December inflation numbers come in higher than expected and the year-over-year numbers are still unhealthy.Then they analyze the final GOP primary debate as DeSantis and Haley hammer each other instead of President Biden or even their own party's frontrunner.

Kim Reynolds is eyeing additional tax cuts. Meanwhile, the high taxing states like California, Maryland, New York, and Massachusetts are running significant deficits.Then they roll their eyes at the kindergarten-level treatment White House Chief of Staff Jeff Zients is forced to extend to cabinet secretaries. Zients is circulating a memo telling officials they need to tell someone if they will be unable to do their jobs for any stretch of time. But they also hammer Defense Sec. Lloyd Austin for making this embarrassing step necessary.Finally, they have some fun with Minnesota Rep.

After Greg's quick celebration of Michigan winning college football's national championship and Jim explaining his efforts to acclimate to Iowa's cold and snow, they serve up good, bad, and crazy martinis.First, they welcome the National Park Service reversing plans to remove a statue of Pennsylvania founder William Penn from Welcome Park in Philadelphia. They note how the left now seeks to erase figures from history who had nothing to do with the confederacy but also why this terrible plan got reversed too quickly.They also react to a Semafor story explaining how the Biden campaign is summoning reporters to explain how their stories have "fallen short" in coverage of Biden and in covering stories about Trump that they think would be most damaging.Finally, they're not at all surprised to hear rumblings from Biden allies that the president should not dignify an opponent like Trump by appearing on a debate stage with him during the general election campaign.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniCatch the deal of the day before it is gone!

First, they walk through the bizarre saga of Defense Sec. Lloyd Austin being in the ICU with post-surgery complications and no one apparently telling the President of the United States, the National Security Adviser, or even the Deputy Secretary of Defense for four days.They also roll their eyes at a new study suggesting higher taxes on sodas and other sugary drinks work to lower consumption and the change is permanent. Instead, they point to people just buying the drinks where they cost less and the government often failing to spend the money where it promised to when the taxes were approved.Finally, they sigh at a new survey of employers showing significant percentages of them are weary of Gen Z applicants - many of whom do not dress well, have outlandish expectations in compensation, lack a strong work ethic, and even bring their parents to job interviews.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniCatch the deal of the day before it is gone!

White House Press Office Tensions, Red China & the Red Sea, ISIS vs. Iran

We've made it to the first Friday of 2024! And Jim and Greg are ready to serve up three martinis - right after Greg shares a fantastic 'Die Hard' story. They start the martinis on the lighter side by reacting to an Axios story outlining tensions in the White House press office as Karine Jean-Pierre and John Kirby split duties in the press room and neither one is particularly is happy about it.Then they did into Jim's reporting on the Houthi militia causing so much havoc in the Red Sea that several major shipping companies are refusing to risk attacks and taking the long way to the west around the southern cape of Africa. This will add to the prices we pay for the goods on board. But Jim also points out that Chinese ships are getting a free pass from the terrorists into the Red Sea.Finally, they also note this week's ISIS terrorist attacks against Iran at the memorial service for Gen. Soleimani. The blast killed 80 people and injured more than 280 others.

Alejandro Mayorkas for suggesting the record number of illegal immigrants is due to climate change, poverty, and authoritarianism in other nations - not the failed policies that triggered this wave of humanity since day one of this administration.Finally, President Biden prepares to make his re-election campaign about him being the only one who can save our democracy - at the very same time Democrats in multiple states are refusing to hold primaries and denying Biden's challengers and voters a chance their shot at a democratic outcome.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniCatch the deal of the day before it is gone!

Harvard Pres. Finally Resigns, Biden's Truly Brutal Numbers, Sen. Menendez Indicted Again

After no good martinis to kick off the year on Tuesday, Jim and Greg have two on tap for today!First, they welcome the resignation of Harvard University Pres. Claudine Gay following scandals over her congressional testimony about speech advocating genocide on campus plus dozens of examples of plagiarism in her academic work. They also get a good laugh as CNN wears out its Thesaurus trying to defend Pres. Gay's academic work.Then they dissect new poll numbers showing President Biden at just 38 percent approval and doing very poorly among Hispanics and young adults. Jim explains why Gen Z and some millennials are fed up with Biden.Finally, another year and another round of indictments for New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez. This time the allegations concern his relationship with Qatar but there are still gold bars involved. Jim wonders why so so few Democrats are doing much of anything to force Menendez out of office or at least off of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, which has access to classified information.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniCatch the deal of the day before it is gone!

SCOTUS & the Trump Ballot Fight, Feds Waste Billions on EV Chargers, FBI HQ Funny Business

Happy New Year! Well, after nearly two weeks since our last regular episode, we have found nothing resembling a good martini. Not the greatest omen for 2024. But we do have three important bad martinis, at least one of which has a whole lot of crazy to it as well.First, they weigh in on the Maine Secretary of State unilaterally deciding that former President Trump is disqualified from this year's primary ballot. Plus, they respond to Maryland Rep. Jamie Raskin - himself an election denier in 2016 - stating that Justice Clarence Thomas must recuse himself from any decisions on Trump's ballot access and hinting that there may be consequences if he doesn't.They're also disgusted (but not at all surprised) that Congress spent $7.5 billion to produce 500,000 electric vehicle chargers and so far, it either has one or none to show for it. Jim also breaks down how this is another example of how why free market is far better than central planning.Finally, Jim details the shady decision by a Biden official to overrule the unanimous recommendation to build the new FBI headquarters in Virginia and award it to Maryland instead.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniCatch the deal of the day before it is gone!

Youngkin Targets the Car Tax, Colorado Bars Trump from the Ballot, Kirby's Afghanistan Revisionism

Join Jim and Greg as they cheer Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin for making a strong case to permanently kill the horrible car tax that resident have to pay every year simply for owning a car. But will the idea go anywhere with Democrats controlling the legislature? Then they dig into the Colorado Supreme Court's decision to ban Donald Trump from the 2024 Republican primary ballot because he allegedly led an insurrection, and that disqualifies him under the 14th Amendment to the Constitution. But with no criminal charges of insurrection and a political acquittal, does the court have any grounds to do this?

Join Jim and Greg as they dissect a New York Times poll that the Times itself insists is proof that Biden needs to be less supportive of Israel in order to keep young people voting for him. Jim gets a kick out of the Times trying to help Biden while actually hurting him and explains why it's doing a terrible job of reading the poll.They also issue a parental advisory as they reflect on the 25th anniversary of the GOP-led House of Representatives impeaching Bill Clinton. Jim explains why he believes time vindicates the Republican position and they consider the larger political and cultural ramifications of Clinton getting away with his deplorable behavior.Finally, they roll their eyes as Donald Trump absurdly calls conservative Texas Rep.

Join Jim and Greg as they enjoy reports suggesting Biden is frustrated with his advisers because the American people continue to think he's doing a lousy job. And Democrats down the ballot are getting worried he could become a drag for them too. They also fume as Iranian proxy groups targets American forces for the 100th time in the past two months. Biden's responses have been extremely timid and the media are dutifully downplaying the reports of these attacks.Finally, they sigh as new polling shows a disturbingly high percentage of young adults diagnose themselves with "menu anxiety."

NYT's Latest Leftward Lurch, The Gullible White House Interns, Boston's 'Electeds of Color' Party

Jim and Greg finish off the week with three important martinis, right after they give the very predictable update of that Hamas official from yesterday saying his comments were "taken out of context" and that he does not support the recognition of Israel.Then they give credit to former New York Times Editorial Page Editor James Bennet for savaging the paper by evolving from taking sides in debates to shutting down opposing viewpoints and serving only as an echo chamber for progressives about a world that doesn't really exist. Bennet was ousted in 2020 after running an op-ed from Sen. Tom Cotton that argued for bringing in troops to quell the riots in American cities. That decision led to a newsroom revolt at the Times.They also scratch their heads over reports that the White House intern letter demanding a ceasefire in the Middle East was started in a group chat by someone none of the interns knew. Jim explains why that story raises multiple serious concerns.Finally, they shake their heads at the obvious double standard as Boston officials take heat getting caught holding an "Electeds of Color" holiday party, to which white city council members were not supposed to be invited but accidentally were.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniCatch the deal of the day before it is gone!

Have two months of intense military operations caused some Hamas figures to seriously reconsider their radicalism or is this simply a tactic designed to attract some more international sympathy?They follow that up with a new poll that shreds the ongoing narrative that there is a wide gulf between Hamas and what the Palestinian people want. The survey shows 72 percent of Palestinians support the Hamas atrocities on October 7, even when considering what has happened since.Finally, a bit closer to home, they react to a CBS poll showing that no matter how clever lawmakers think they are in naming legislation, many Americans still have no idea the bills exist.Please visit out great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniCatch the deal of the day before it is gone!

House GOP's Border Demands, Hunter Biden: 2nd Amendment Hero? Youngkin's Arena Deal

Join Jim and Greg as they once again serve up at least two good martinis, and possibly a third.First, they applaud House Speaker Mike Johnson for demanding major action on border security as part of any deal to continue aid to Ukraine. And Jim fumes that Biden could have done this deal months ago, all to his own political benefit but his refusal to acknowledge the reality at the border is costing him dearly.They also get a kick out of Hunter Biden trying to avoid his gun charges by claiming the Supreme Court's Bruen decision in 2022 means a gun buyer should no longer have to answer whether he is a current or former drug user. It's a case that puts his own interests at direct odds with his father's prioritites on the Second Amendment.Finally, they examine the deal Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin seems to have made to lure the Washington Capitals and Washington Wizards to a new home across the river from D.C. They're pleased to see most Virginia taxpayers don't appear to be on the hook for the cost but nothing is finalized yet and there are some other concerns.

The Truth About Inflation, Al Gore Wants to Ban News Algorithms, White House Hanukkah Blunders

It's bad and crazy martinis today after a Monday full of good news. Join Jim and Greg as they wince over CNBC's Rick Santelli offering a painful much much-needed explanation of compounding inflation - far from the White House narrative that Biden has it under control. He doesn't.They also roll their eyes as Al Gore takes a reasonable concern - social media pushing questionable posts to the top of your feed due to the level of engagement - and makes the absurd argument that these posts are damaging to democracy, are the "digital equivalent of the AR-15" and ought to be banned. Finally, they cringe as the Biden administration fails to reply to family members of remaining hostages in Gaza who asked to attend the lighting of the White House menorah. Meanwhile, the husband of Vice President Harris completely butchers his explanation of Hanukkah.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniCatch the deal of the day before it is gone!

Milei Slashes Argentina Agencies, Jackson Lee Trounced in Houston, Enlightening Middle East Poll

Join Jim and Greg serve up three good martinis to start the week. First, they watch new Argentinian President Javier Milei with great interest, especially after he shuttered 12 of 21 government ministries on his first day in office. What impact will these libertarian principles have on the nation and beyond?They also breathe a sigh of relief for Houston, Texas. While they have no great expectations for incoming Mayor John Whitmire, they're glad that voters rejected longtime far left Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee by a wide margin.Finally, they discuss a survey of college students showing 86 percent support the phrase "From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free." Yet only 47 percent know which river and sea are involved. And the good news is that the vast majority of students who realized that the chant implies the eradication of Israel then oppose it.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniCatch the deal of the day before it is gone!

Hunter Biden Tax Indictments, CAIR's Extremism & Biden's Retreat, Pentagon vs. Free Speech

Join Jim and Greg as they close out the week with three big martinis. First, they review the nine new tax charges filed against Hunter Biden, including three felonies, and review just how brazen Hunter's lies to the IRS were. Listener discretion advised as we discuss his "business expenses."They also recoil at the comments of CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad, who referred to October 7 as Gaza removing the shackles and leaving its concentration camp and alleged Gaza has the right to self-defense but Israel does not. And they note how quickly the Biden administration is now pretending it did not have a warm relationship with CAIR up until the speech.Finally, they react to the latest reporting from Michael Shellenberger showing how a cyber threat entity inside the Pentagon was allegedly turned into an effort to confront "disinformation" from Americans online.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniCatch the deal of the day before it is gone!

Ron DeSantis in Wednesday night's debate, including demanding college and universities have more skin in the game when it comes to student loans and citing Calvin Coolidge as a president who inspires him. They also hammer the Biden administration for balking at efforts by congressional Republicans to address the obviously broken border and tying it to aid for Ukraine and Israel.Finally, they head back to the debate and address the many dust-ups, usually involving Vivek Ramaswamy against Nikki Haley and Chris Christie.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniCatch the deal of the day before it is gone!

It's especially hypocritical when considering how quick these administrators are to champion BLM, feminists, and the LGBT activists.They also cheer Utah Sen. Mike Lee for blasting FBI Director Christopher Wray for the bureau's failure to to pursue warrants in seeking information on American citizens in all 103 cases in which it was required.

Ugly Anti-Semitism in Philly, Rep. Jayapal's Hamas Rape Response, Kerry's Climate Extremism

Join Jim and Greg as they serve up two very bad martinis and a crazy one that is also terrible. First, they unload on the anti-Semitic crowd in Philadelphia last night that hatefully targeted a falafel restaurant owned in part by an Israeli-American and accused him of genocide. They also recoil as far-left Washington Rep. Pramila Jayapal says she condemns the rampant Hamas rapes of Israelis but then plays "both sides" by equating it to civilian casualties suffered in Gaza when Israel attacks Hamas military assets.Finally, they hammer John Kerry for declaring he wants to prevent any new coal-fired plants in the world and the U.S. for signing on to a dubious fund supposedly designed to help developing nations recover from climate change - but the United Nations says it will need $250 billion per year by the end of the decade.

They highlight Kissinger's record and why he is deeply respected by some deeply reviled by others.They also hammer Hamas for the deadly shootings of Israeli civilians in Jerusalem, including a pregnant teacher, and what this means for the temporary ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas war.Finally, they scratch their heads after former President Trump claims he has the support of a former Black LIves Matter official and from the organization itself.

Is Biden Getting Tough on Iran? Trump's Twitter & Your Speech, The Feds & Mayor Adams

Former federal prosecutor and National Review Contributing Editor Andy McCarthy is in while Jim Geraghty is under the weather. Today, Greg and Andy discuss new sanctions from the U.S. Treasury Department against individuals and entities helping for finance Iran's military and IRGC. But Andy explains why this step is hardly bold considering Iran's recent actions against the U.S. Andy also breaks down the legal and constitutional impact of Special Counsel Jack Smith not only demanding many different details about President Trump's Twitter account but also Smith demanding the information of anyone who like, retweeted, or otherwise engaged with Trump in the months leading up to January 6th.Finally, they test out Andy's postulate that Democrats only prosecute other Democrats to protect Democrats. Is the FBI publicly digging into allegations of illegal fundraising in Adams' orbit and possibly his ties to Turkey because that's where the evidence leads or because Adams is now a thorn in the side of the Biden administration?Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniCatch the deal of the day before it is gone!

Biden's Inflation Reality Check, Joe Wilts Under Leftist Pressure, Education Sec. Flunks Reagan 101

Join Jim and Greg as they wince at a new Bloomberg reports showing how much more Americans are paying for food, electricity, water, rent, childcare, and much more. But the report is an important rebuttal to the Biden administration's gaslighting that the inflation problem has been solved.They also groan at reports that just one day after Biden reasonably said he does not trust casualty figures from Hamas, the president buckled under criticism from Muslim leaders, said he was ashamed of himself and promised to do better.Finally, they have some fun as Education Sec. Miguel Cardona appears to quote President Reagan unironically as having said he was from the government and was here to help.

They're also thrilled that some women and children held hostage by Hamas are now home but they are wary of the growing pressure for Israel's military pause to continue, which is a big advantage for Hamas.Finally, they examine the mysterious car explosion at the U.S.-Canada border last week, early reports of terrorism, and the media's habit of dropping a story when the narrative suddenly changes.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniCatch the deal of the day before it is gone!

What We're Politically Thankful for in 2023

Continuing their long Thanksgiving tradition, Jim and Greg unveil their lists of things they are politically thankful for, although this year they don't stick as close to politics as they have in past years. Jim reflects on last week's Pro-Israel march in Washington and the stark contrast to the hateful and often violent demonstrations we've seen from the left for many years. Greg explains why he's thankful for Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin despite a disappointing year for Republicans in the commonwealth.Then it gets more personal, as Jim discusses how thankful he is for his family and that we never know how many Thanksgivings they will have together. He urges you to find common ground with your loved ones beyond politics. Greg echoes Jim's thoughts but also highlights the many aspects of life for which we need to be thankful and to Whom we need to be thankful.Finally, Jim gives thanks for the gift of humor to help us through one difficult news cycle after another, while Greg is grateful for the states giving parents more options on where to send their kids to school and how to pay for it.There will be no episode of the 3 Martini Lunch on Thanksgiving Day.

Climate Doomsday Reality Check, Biden Way Too Soft on Iran, Insane Border Wall Blame Game

Join Jim and Greg as they appreciate new research from Trinity University in Ireland and The Ohio State University showing that the climate alarmists are way off and that increased carbon dioxide is absorbed by trees and others plants and makes them stronger - just like we learned in basic biology class.They also wince as the Biden administration continues to tread very lightly with Iran despite more than four dozen attacks on U.S. positions in the Middle East by Iran proxy groups and the hijacking of a ship in the Red Sea by Iran-backed Houthi rebels.Finally, they get a good laugh out of a USA TODAY story bemoaning the serious injuries illegal immigrants are suffering by falling off of our new 30-foot high border walls. And of course, there's no suggestion that the migrants are responsible for their own actions. No, it's the wall's fault - and the people that wanted it.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniCatch the deal of the day before it is gone!

They also note Milei's unconventional approach to politics and the media's reflexive opposition to him.They also chronicle a Fox News poll showing showing voters trust Republicans to deal with issues ranging from the border to foreign policy and from crime to government spending - by a wide margin. And an NBC poll shows President Biden with his worst numbers yet. But can Republicans actually capitalize on all this?Finally, they fume as Politico shifts from constantly demonizing any GOP calls for spending restraints to suddenly noticing out-of-control spending and huge interest payments on the debt - and are now demanding the House GOP majority do something about it.

First, they welcome Major League Baseball quietly announcing the 2025 All-Star Game will be in Atlanta, never mentioning that it removed the game from Atlanta in 2021 under the absurd pretext that Georgia's new voting laws were racist and constituted voter suppression.They're also glad to report that were some positive results in last week's Virginia elections, including a final reckoning for the Loudoun County prosecutor and school board who covered up a sexual assault in the name of diversity and even prosecuted the father of the victim instead of the perpetrator.Finally, they dive into Elon Musk endorsing a post on X alleging Jews have a "dialectical hatred of whites."

In addition, they're pleased to hear Santos will not run for re-election, meaning this bizarre episode will be over - at least politically - in just about a year. They also break down the unrest Wednesday night as pro-Palestinian protesters clashed with police outside the Democratic National Committee headquarters in Washington. And Jim wonders where the outrage or even interest in this story is from the mainstream media.Finally, they unload on the new TikTok trend where young leftists claim they just read Osama bin Laden's "Letter to America" following the 9/11 attacks and disturbingly conclude that the Al Qaeda leader who was responsible for nearly 3,000 deaths that day now seems to make a lot of sense.Please visit our grear sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniCatch the deal of the day before it is gone!

They also wince at reports that President Biden is planning to sign a deal with Chinese dictator Xi Xinping to limit the use of artificial intelligence in nuclear weapons systems and drones because China won't honor anything it signs if it has a strategic interest in violating the agreement. Finally, they size up Tuesday's near fight on Capitol Hill between Oklahoma Sen. Markwayne Mullin and Teamsters Union President Sean O'Brien with Bernie Sanders intervening to stop it.

They also sigh as House Republicans still cannot seem to agree on much - the latest evidence being the failure to impeach Homeland Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, who so richly deserves to get the boot. There's also the fight over government spending as the Freedom Caucus refuses to get behind another continuing resolution backed by House Speaker Mike Johnson.Finally, they say no way as New York Gov.

Biden Unpopular in California, Photographers Embedded with Hamas, Michigan's Green Energy Land Grab

Hillsdale College Radio General Manager and Radio Free Hillsdale Hour Host Scot Bertram is in for Jim. Today, Scot and Greg dissect a poll showing President Biden with a 52 disapproval rate in deep blue California. Republicans have virtually no chance to win the state but there is clearly widespread dissatisfaction in Biden's performance. They also recoil at the news Associated Press and Reuters photojournalists were embedded with Hamas during their ghastly slaughter of Israelis on October 7. Some of those photographers also freelanced with CNN and the New York Times. This raises so many questions about what the news organizations may have known ahead of time and how they dealt with learning their employees were there and possibly even participating.Finally, they groan as Michigan leftists makes plans to set up solar and wind farms on 209,000 acres of the state and have stripped local leaders from being able to refuse these projects in their jurisdictions. And even that huge amount of land isn't enough to meet the 100 percent renewable energy mandates set for 2040.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniCatch the deal of the day before it is gone!

Jim in Taiwan: Strong Defenses, The Chinese Threat, Earthquakes & Innovation

Jim spent more than a week in Taiwan, getting first-hand briefing and answers to key questions about how our ally is bracing for a possible Chinese invasion. Today, Jim briefs us on what he learned - the good the bad and the crazy.First, Jim explains the significant advantages Taiwan has in the event of Chinese aggression. From the physical characteristics of the island to the massive urban setting and even jungle conditions in other areas, China would face a hostile environment in addition to a hostile population.Then Jim details the sobering assessment that China will likely attack within the next several years. He also shares how Taiwan's lack of formal independence gives it a second-class status in several important ways - from the United Nations to being ignored by Interpol and the World Health Organization.Finally, Jim reveals some of the intense and amusing sidelights, from being caught in an earthquake to the quirks of other journalists on the trip to his overt jealousy of the superior engineering of Taiwanese toilets.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniCatch the deal of the day before it is gone!

Virginia's Terrorism Probe, Hamas Traps 600 Americans, Abortion & the Elections

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome Virginia's investigation of a domestic Islamic organization over possible ties to terrorist organizations. They urge a full and honest probe but Jim also explains why he's not fretting over the public relations impact on the group in the meantime.They also fume over the ongoing dearth of coverage of the approximately 10 American hostages still held by Hamas nearly a month after the attack. And now we also learn that Hamas refuses to let some 600 American residents leave Gaza without major concessions. Why are media outlets so quiet about these Americans being held against their will?Finally, they look ahead to next week's off-year elections in several states and wonder whether Democrats can win by talking almost exclusively about abortion and when Republicans will start defending their positions more effectively.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniCatch the deal of the day before it is gone!After Deathhttps://angel.com/threemartinilunchNow in theaters.

U.S. Strikes Back at Iran, FBI/DOJ Burying Evidence on Biden? Bowman's Sweetheart Deal

Former Chief Assistant U.S. Attorney and National Review Contributing Editor Andy McCarthy is in for Jim, who will be back on Monday. Today, Andy and Greg cheer the U.S. strikes against Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps sites in Syria following multiple drone attacks against U.S. forces in the region last week. But Andy is very concerned that the Biden administration refuses to get tough with Iran, who is clearly collaborating with Hamas, Russia, and the Chinese. Andy also breaks down the open letter from Sen. Chuck Grassley alleging that dozens of whistleblowers have told him the FBI and Justice Department are refusing to follow up on key evidence of the Biden family corruption and are actively trying to bury it all.Finally, Andy walks us through the incredibly generous deal offered to New York Rep. Jamal Bowman for intentionally pulling a fire alarm to delay a House vote late last month. New video proves Bowman's story to date is false. Andy explains why Bowman should have been charged with disrupting a congressional proceeding and why this sweetheart deal of a $1,000 fine and the charge not staying on his record permanently was done.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.com/martiniCatch the deal of the day before it is gone!

And of course the left is furious,They also chronicle the onslaught of anti-Semitism that is only intensifying on many college campuses - from students at the University of Washington calling for the end of Israel and Zionists to a Northwetern University professor cheering on and accommodating demonstrators who cut class to the terrifying scene at Cooper Union in New York City, where Jewish students had to be locked in the library to protect them from a pro-Hamas protest that was banging on the doors and screaming at them.Finally, they fume over the thoroughly predictable debt catastrophe that is already bad and about to get MUCH worse.

And Inez says the results shuld not shock anyone.

Then they throw up their hands as the New York Times rehires a photojournalist is suspended just last year for blatantly pro-Hitler social media posts. His assignment now? Cover the Israel-Hamas war of course. They also shudder as U.S. Customs and Border Protection releases a letter explaining high levels of concern that radical Islamic fighters may be in this country or headed here thanks to our porous southern border.

They also cringe as a top Biden national security official says he is confident that Hamas will not interfere with $100 million of U.S. aid to the Palestinian people because they "have an understanding." And they remind us where we've heard very similar language before. Finally, they shake their heads as more than 400 congressional staffers write an open letter demanding that lawmakers insist upon a cease-fire in the Middle East - but all of them refuse to sign the letter instead of standing behind their words.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.comUse code MARTINI to get 10% off your purchase.

They also hammer Health and Human Services Sec. Xavier Becerra for pushing for a "universal system of public health" even though he admits the Constitution doesn't allow it. He thinks it's bad that different states could set different policies during the COVID pandemic and he wants more power over your life to address climate change. Then, they slam Michigan Rep.

Will it be resolved today? They're also puzzled by the surprisingly little coverage of the hundreds of hostages taken by Hamas - some of them American. Normally, the media would have wall-to-wall coverage of something like that. Finally, they react to President Biden's comments over the weekend about no one needing "a weapon with 100 rounds in the chamber."

That's a big change from just a few years ago.

Evil Hamas Terrorism, Biden Administration Weakness, Typical Anti-Israel Responses

First, they chronicle the unconscionable acts of terrorism, torture, rape, and abduction by Hamas - and how the only proper description of the actions is pure evil.Then they walk through the Biden's administration's refusal to confirm Iran was intimately involved in the planning of the attacks even after Hamas and others admit that's exactly what happened. They also detail how weakness projected by the Biden administration in Afghanistan and in its constant groveling before Tehran to strike a new nuclear agreement likely emboldened Iran.But they also note that there will likely be significant political consequences in Israel over the failure to prevent or detect the attacks.Finally, they fume over the very predictable responses from some politicians, media figures, and activists blaming Israel for the carnage or at least creating a moral equivalence between the terrorism and the Israeli military response.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.comUse code MARTINI to get 10% off your purchase.

The 2024 Campaign: Trump vs. Biden or Are We in for A Surprise?

As Greg heads off on vacation, he and Jim break down the current state of the 2024 presidential campaign for Republicans and Democrats. Does Trump have a stranglehold on the GOP nomination despite big negatives with the general electorate and four major legal fights looming next year? And do his leads in some polls against President Biden undercut the DeSantis argument that he is the better bet next year?They also dissect where the Democrats stand. Biden has a massive lead among Democrats but his polling is terrible, especially on the economy. Will Democrats roll the dice and stick with Biden in hopes Trump is even more unpopular? Will they move on to Vice President Harris, whom very few in the party seem to have any confidence in? Or will Gov. Gavin Newsom or some other Democrat emerge the worse Biden's health and poll numbers get?Finally, they consider the Senate map for 2024, where Republicans could gain seats, where they risk wasting more good opportunities, and much more.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.comUse code MARTINI to get 10% off your purchase.

And Jim breaks down why Americans are very sour on the economy despite the Biden administration insisting that it's great. They also shudder at a Semafor report showing that Iran infiltrated the Obama and Biden administrations as well as the media to push for softer relations toward the mullahs in Iran and the pathetic Iran nuclear deal. Finally, they groan as two-thirds of Americans want to scrap the Electoral College and choose presidents based on the popular vote, and they are especially irked at the 47 percent of Republicans who say they want that.

Lujan-Grisham's emergency order removing open and concealed carry rights because it is unconstitutional, does not help public safety, and only impacts law-abiding people. They also groan as Biden fails to show up to any of the 9/11 sites yesterday, lies about going to Ground Zero the day after the attacks, and then cuts a sweetheart deal giving prisoners and $6 billion in cash to Iran in exchange for American prisoners. Finally, they get a kick out of Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm embarking on an EV trip from Charlotte to Memphis to prove electric vehicles are great for road trips.

But Democrats also have no idea whom they would want to replace Biden. They also react to Special Counsel David Weiss announcing that there will likely be an indictment against Hunter Biden on a gun charge by the end of the month, but they also note Andy McCarthy's assessment that this is not about Weiss finally getting tough on Hunter.

Join Jim and Greg as they cautiously welcome news of Ukrainian progress against Russians at a key spot along the war front.

Finally, they unload on California for thoroughly implausible new regulations banning diesel-powered big rigs travelling between ports starting next year in favor of electric trucks. From the length of charging time to weight restrictions to the toll on the electrical grid, the impact on trucking - and the prices you pay for goods, the expectations are completely unrealistic.

They also cringe at the state of the housing market as interest rates keep rising and the inventory of houses on the market plummets compared to pre-pandemic levels.

So do the Dems roll the dice on Biden anyway and hope Trump is even less popular? Do they push Biden out ad gamble on Kamala Harris? Or do they find someone else entirely? They also groan as the Biden Energy Department demands changes to make ceiling fans more energy efficient. But the laughably minimal energy savings will be dwarfed by the $86.6 million per year that manufacturers will need to spend to comply with the new rules. Finally, they cringe as the Biden administration clearly plants a question with compliant reporter about COVID and both the reporter and Biden make the ruse painfully obvious.

Pritzker, and several others who aren't the slightest bit moderate. They also unload on the Biden administration's talking point that the economy is great and we just don't appreciate it. The latest evidence is that Americans paid $709 more in July 2023 than they did for the exact same goods and services than they did two years ago. Finally, they recoil at numbers showing 25 percent of American school students missed 10 percent or more of school days in the 2021-22 school year, which translates to 6.5 million more students than prior to the pandemic.

4th of July Special

As the United States marks 247 years of independence, it's time to celebrate what we love about this country. While many people in this country prefer to focus on what they think is wrong with the U.S. or contend that it has been flawed from the beginning, Jim and Greg take time to express some of the different things they love about being Americans. From the revolutionary ideas that led to our founding freedoms to understanding how much better we have it than other nations and from the beauty of our land to the variety of places we can live and visit, there is so much to appreciate about being an American.Timestamps:1:46 - Loving the variety we have in the U.S.4:28 - Loving our founding principles7:23 - Experiencing other countries makes you love America more11:39 - America as a beacon of hope brought our ancestors here14:45 - The people of the U.S. help to make us great18:42 - America is beautifulPlease visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.comUse code MARTINI to get 10% off your purchase.

You Ask, We Answer Part 1

Some of our favorite episodes are the ones where you ask Jim and Greg questions and they offer their takes on politics, sports, pop culture or whatever else is on your mind.Today, they analyze why people with no chance of being elected president decide to run for the office anyway and respond to a listener who wants the people to have a say on who Jim and Greg label as the poster child for generic Republicans.They also take on a question about how to tame the administrative state and stop unelected government bureaucrats from making rules and de facto laws. Would it help to adopt a constitutional amendment explaining that power rests only in Congress? And of course there's a question about "Die Hard." Specifically, should this epic film ever be rebooted, and if so, who should direct it and star in it?Timestamps:1:23 - Why do people run for president when they have no chance of winning7:06 - Should listeners get to choose who we label as the poster child for generic Republicans?12:29 - How do we tame the administrative state?

The State of the 2024 Presidential Campaign

Election Day 2024 is more than 16 months away, but the first Republican debate is less than two months away and voters in the first primary and caucus states will be casting their ballots in just a few months. Today, Jim and Greg examine the state of the campaign in three different ways.First, they look at the Democratic primary. While President Biden has a commanding lead over Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Marianne Williamson, the enthusiasm - even among Democrats - is very low for another four years of Biden. Will the Democrats stick with Biden regardless of his approval numbers and mounting evidence of physical and mental decline? Then they pivot to the Republican primary, where former President Trump has opened a big lead over Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis both nationally and increasingly in the states. Is the GOP base loyalty towards Trump locked in and virtually irreversible or is there an avenue for DeSantis or anyone else to close the gap.Finally, they preview a likely Biden-Trump rematch and consider how much the electorate has changed in the past few years. Will Biden's poor performance be enough of a boost for Trump or will Trump's focus on 2020 and his legal challenges lead to another four years for Biden?Timestamps:1:07 - The Democrats are gambling on Joe Biden again9:18 - The curious case of Kamala Harris10:48 - The GOP primary. Has the base already sided with Trump?18:57 - Would Biden-Trump II be different than Biden-Trump I?Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.comUse code MARTINI to get 10% off your purchase.

Affirmative Action Struck Down, Airline Nightmare, Biden Student Loan Can-Kicking

Join Jim and Greg for good, bad, and crazy martinis. First they applaud the Supreme Court's decision to deem Affirmative Action unconstitutional in college admissions. They then blast the FAA, the airlines, and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg for air travel turning into a miserable experience this summer. Finally, they discuss the recent Biden administration decision to provide a "safety net" for borrowers as student loan payments resume for the first time since the COVID pandemic hit.Timestamps: 1:19 - SCOTUS ruling on Affirmative Action11:14 - Airlines, Buttigieg blame each other for summer air travel problems18:45 - Biden administration plans "safety net" for borrowers on student loansPlease visit our great sponsors: 4Patriothttps://4Patriots.comUse code MARTINI to get 10% off your purchase.

Join Jim and Greg for good, bad, and crazy martinis. First they react to IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley's allegations of interference by the DOJ regarding the Hunter Biden investigation, and being blocked entirely from investigating Joe Biden. They then discuss the recent report from Ford Motor Company that it expects to lose $3 billion in operating profit on electric vehicles.

Americans Back Taiwan, Michigan Attacks Free Speech, Media's Biden Smokescreen

Join Jim and Greg for a full course of good, bad, and crazy martinis. First they react to a new Rasmussen Reports poll revealing that most Americans support Taiwan's independence, and discuss how it clashes with the recently soft stances of the Biden Administration towards the Chinese Communist Party. They then critique a new bill in Michigan that would jail people for up to five years if their speech makes someone "feel threatened". Finally, they comment on the media distracting from the Biden corruption scandal by suggesting the "real lesson" is Joe Biden's unconditional love for his son through Hunter's battles with addiction.

Press Corps Wakes Up, Pelosi Wants SCOTUS Term Limits, Garland's Pathetic Defense

Jim Geraghty is back! After a brief discussion about the confusing Russian coup, Jim and Greg dive into three domestic issues today. First, they're happy to see the White House press corps - even some of the usually compliant members - demanding answers about President Biden's apparent involvement in Hunter Biden's business deals after Biden repeatedly insisted he knew nothing about them. They also roll their eyes as former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has been in Congress for more than 36 years, calls for term limits for Supreme Court justices. Finally, they push back hard after Attorney General Merrick Garland suggests any accusation of political favoritism coming from the Justice Department is "an attack on an institution that is essential to American democracy." Jim shreds Garland for suggesting criticism of the DOJ is somehow out of bounds, when it's one of our most basic rights and freedoms.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.comUse code MARTINI to get 10% off your purchase.

Ricochet.com Editor-in-Chief Jon Gabriel is in for Jim, who will be back on Monday. Join Jon and Greg as they applaud the rapid reopening of Interstate 95 in Philadelphia and note how quickly some projects get done when there is strong political incentive to get it done. They also fume as IRS whistleblowers tell Congress that the Justice Department repeatedly meddled in the Hunter Biden investigation by tipping off Hunter's lawyers at times, forbidding the U.S. attorney from opening multiple investigations, and discouraging the investigation of incriminating messages. Finally, they shudder at the the legislative push in Ireland to "restrict freedom for the common good," which is always the argument for the government stealing our liberties and giving itself more power.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.comUse code MARTINI to get 10% off your purchase.

Seeking Sanity in Sports, Dems Going Soft on Venezuela, A Hurd of GOP Hopefuls

Ricochet.com Editor-in-Chief Jon Gabriel is in for Jim today. Join Jon and Greg as they break down Senate hearings on whether biological men who identify as women should be permitted to participate in women's sports - and the absurd notion from the left that there really is no difference between them when it comes to athletics. They also roll their eyes as a group of House Democrats asks the Biden administration to ease sanctions on Venezuela in order to help the beleaguered Venezuelan people, as if the people would see an ounce of benefit compared to the corrupt communists running the country. Finally, they groan as former Texas Rep.

Durham's Dire Warning, Crime-Ridden Cities, Pandemic Learning Loss Persists

Ricochet Editor-in-Chief Jon Gabriel is in for Jim today. Join Jon and Greg as they welcome Special Counsel John Durham's congressional testimony about the FBI's deeply flawed Crossfire Hurricane investigation and how the Bureau used information it knew was false to obtain FISA warrants on Trump campaign figures. They also appreciate Durham saying that a few cosmetic policy changes at the FBI won't solve anything, and that there needs to be much more accountability there - especially at the higher levels. They also cringe as the latest Washington, D.C. violent crime statistics show a big increase over last year and as Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson prioritizes taxpayer-funded housing for illegal immigrants over addressing the Windy City's huge crime problem. Finally, they sigh as the latest testing shows 13-year-olds declined markedly in math and reading skills compared to testing done before the pandemic.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.comUse code MARTINI to get 10% off your purchase.

Massive COVID Fraud, Gas Stove Doublespeak, High-Speed Rail Delusion

Hillsdale College Radio General Manager and Radio Free Hillsdale Hour Host Scot Bertram is in for Jim today. Join Scot and Greg for one bad and two crazy martinis. After Scott shares his story of an All-American weekend, they are frustrated and unsurprised at the $403 billion in taxpayer-funded COVID relief that was lost to fraud and government waste. They then react to the mixed messages on gas stove bans, where the left continues to reassure Americans they will not be banned, while many municipalities have already begun their restrictions. Finally, they roll their eyes at the left's obsession with high-speed rail, pointing out that the projects constantly cost much more than expected, and deliver lackluster results.

Dobbs & Declining Abortions, Space Force Discrimination, Media's Trump Obsession

Hillsdale College Radio General Manager and Radio Free Hillsdale Hour Host Scot Bertram is in for Jim today. Join Scot and Greg as they cheer statistics showing abortions are down in the U.S. since the Dobbs decision at the Supreme Court and way down in states that have enacted stronger pro-life laws. They're also horrified as a three-star general in the U.S. Space Force warns that people who are less qualified for command positions will likely be chosen for them because of state laws banning puberty blockers and radical gender surgeries for minors. Finally, they groan as ABC's "Good Morning America" spends almost an entire interview with GOP presidential candidate and Miami Mayor Francis Suarez asking him about Donald Trump. Scot says this should a major warning sign to the RNC about who ought to host Republican primary debates, and he suggests a familiar name to be a panelist at those debates.Please visit our great sponsors:4Patriothttps://4Patriots.comUse code MARTINI to get 10% off your purchase.

Unpopular Presidential Candidates, Fact Checkers Proven Partisan, America's Overdose Crisis

Join Jim and Greg as they serve up three lousy martinis. First, they dissect a new Quinnipiac poll showing Americans strongly dislike the best known presidential candidates, while huge majorities have no clue who many of the other hopefuls are. They're also sadly unsurprised at a Free Beacon report showing that 99.5 percent of all political donations from professional "fact checkers" went to Democrats. Finally, they wince at the new CDC report showing 109,000 overdose deaths in the U.S. in 2022, proving that the COVID severely worsened the problem but the end of the pandemic hasn't improved things at all.

They also sigh as President Biden once again offers up completely false or badly outdated talking points - including his new favorite factoid that Africa will soon have one billion people, a level it reached in 2009.

Grassley's Biden Bombshell, No Campaign for No Labels? Burying the Target Truth

Join Jim and Greg for one good martini and two crazy ones. First they react to Senator Chuck Grassley revealing that a foreign national claims to have recordings of conversations with Hunter and Joe Biden.The conversations allegedly prove the Bidens engaged in bribery while Joe was Vice President. They then assess The No Labels statement that it will not run a candidate in 2024 should Trump lose the GOP nomination. Finally, they shake their heads at The Washington Post's misleading headline that reported bomb threats "over Pride merchandise".

Will anyone condemn the CCP for heading down this road? They also sigh at new polling showing President Biden and Donald Trump with identical, lousy 31 percent approval ratings. Americans do not want this rematch, but all indications suggest they will get it anyway.

Trump Indicted Again, Automatic Absentee Ballots, Saudis Bullied Biden

Join Jim and Greg as they mix another full batch of crazy martinis. First, they note another indictment of Donald Trump, this time by federal prosecutors over alleged mishandling of classified documents. They also break down the bizarre political fallout we're likely to see from all of this and are surprised by an unlikely skeptic of the charges. They also groan as they discover Virginia allows voters to sign up on a list that automatically sends them absentee ballots for every election. It's a recipe for mischief and suspicion, and asking people who want to vote absentee - most of whom could easily show and vote - to make a ballot request for each election is not asking very much. Finally, they react to reports that Joe Biden's threat of "consequences" against Saudi Arabia was met with Saudi threats of "not dealing with the U.S. administration anymore."
