Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America cheer the news that the Clinton Global Initiative is shutting down.  They also sigh as more and more Democrats publicly state that Donald Trump is an illegitimate president.  And they unload on a reviewer who pans “Patriots Day” because a white male is the hero, the resilience of the Boston is presented as a good thing and police are the good guys.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are pleased to see the Democrats’ strategy against Jeff Sessions accomplish nothing – and they point out why the strategy was so stupid.  They also groan as the Obama administration’s self-congratulations tour continues with Obama giving Joe Biden the Presidential Medal of Freedom.  And they react to Sen. Kamala Harris grilling CIA director nominee Mike Pompeo about climate change, while Jim explains the “sure, whatever” strategy he would employ at a confirmation hearing.

After having some fun with reports that science proves conservatives are better looking, Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America welcome mainstream media condemnation of BuzzFeed.  They’re also underwhelmed by Secretary of State nominee Rex Tillerson, while noting he does have several strong points.  And they lament the San Diego Chargers leaving for Los Angeles after voters rejected paying for a new stadium.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America slam BuzzFeed, and to some extent CNN, for irresponsible reporting on alleged dirt that the Russians have on Donald Trump.  They also rip Pres. Obama for his delusional farewell speech, including his patented move of urging Americans to understand one another while demonizing anyone who disagrees with him.  And they wonder why Trump would meet with someone as loony as Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. on the issue of vaccines possibly causing autism.

The mission of the mainstream press in America is to help advance the agenda and fortunes of the Democrat Party. Donald Trump treats the press as though they are his enemies. Tactically, this is the correct […]

The Democrat-Media Complex Narrative is that the US Intelligence Agencies (who are completely non-partisan and never make mistakes) have determined that evil foreigners (Russia) “hacked the election” to install Trump as their puppet president. And the Low-Information-Voters seem to be lapping up this narrative, just like they lapped up “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” and “If […]

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America conclude their 2016 awards presentations with the biggest awards of all.  They unveil their choices for Person of the Year and Turncoat of the Year.  They also reveal their political resolutions for 2017.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America have already beat up on the media in these end-of-year awards, but this installment is focused exclusively on the media.  Today we offer our choices for most over-reported and under-reported stories of the year and our personal selections for story of the year.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America continue their year-end awards.  Today, they reflect on the political figures they were most sad to see pass away in 2016.  They also discuss their rising political stars and reach an easy consensus on the political figure they are most eager to see fade into oblivion.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America begin their annual year-end awards presentations.  Today they hand out their individual choices for most underrated, overrated, and honest political figures.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America groan as conservative House Republicans are reportedly prepared to be less demanding on reining in spending once Trump is in office.  They also shake their heads as more revelations suggest the Germans should have had the Berlin terrorist out of the country a long time ago.  And they discuss three hate crime allegations that turned out to be hoaxes – the latest in a series of fake news.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America react to a Washington Post report suggesting the 2018 Senate map gives the Republicans a chance to hold a 60-seat majority.  They also shudder as German authorities confirm they’re looking for a Tunisian asylum seeker as the one responsible for the Berlin terrorist attack.  And they scratch their heads over the reasons some Democrats are giving for opposing Keith Ellison as the next DNC chairman, instead of the really glaring reasons he would be a terrible choice.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America shudder at the public assassination of the Russian ambassador to Turkey and the truck attack at a Christmas market in Berlin.  They also unload on the 10 faithless electors in Monday’s Electoral College vote.  And they get a kick out of Pres. Obama urging Donald Trump to take it easy in issuing executive orders.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud the RNC for beefing up cyber security so the Russians could not hack it successfully.  They also groan as Facebook picks several liberal outlets to decide if users are posting “fake news.”  And we discuss Democratic donors demanding answers for Hillary Clinton’s defeat and some of them thinking about not donating in the future.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America enjoy watching more Clinton campaign fingerpointing – this time at Huma Abedin.  They rip the intelligence community for being willing to offer anonymous stories to the press on Russian election hacking but being unwilling to brief members of Congress.  And they get a kick out of celebrities launching a new video begging GOP electors to reject Donald Trump.
