Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. I Am Appalled at the Pessimism

 

Apparently, to be conservative means to ever believe that the best Americans are all dead. It is to believe that America’s best days are behind her, that the left has won, and that this current crisis will be what does in the Republic.

America will rise to this crisis. Our President is doing what presidents do in a crisis like this. Our Republic always stumbles out of the gate, and then we rally. In 1941, Americans did not know that they would win the war, they knew the war was thrust upon them. The shouldered on.

Join Jim and Greg for two good martinis and some craziness. They welcome evidence that the spread of COVID-19 may be slowing in New York. They also salute private industries shifting their focus in big ways to meet the demand for ventilators, masks and more. And they roll their eyes as Nancy Pelosi begins eyeing the next big spending bill.

First it was DeBlasio threatening to permanently close synagogues if New York Jews held services. Not to be outdone, the DC Mayor says, “You’re not so tough on your citizens. Look at what I’m doing!” https://nypost.com/2020/03/30/dc-mayor-threatens-jail-time-for-leaving-home-during-coronavirus/ More

Today on the show media hacks selectively use per capita data, Trump and Biden are tied in latest polling, robot technology that might not kill us all, Georgia media wants Kemp to be a dictator and China’s garbage government does nothing but lie.

Join Jim and Greg as they cheer much quicker COVID-19 tests, new treatments, and progress on a vaccine. They also discuss the likely impact of America shutting down for at least another month. And they shake their heads at the tactics of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo.

So, today marks two weeks of self isolation in the US and the mountains of dead bodies have failed to turn up. It’s now clear that the predictions the government is using to justify their actions must be extreme upper limits of how this will all play out. The picture of when this virus began […]

I’ve been debating for a week now whether or not to write a post about the ongoing voter roll and election controversies that have been occurring in Wisconsin for at least the last six months, and have ramped up during the Corona Virus pandemic. It’s a long and complex story, with lawsuits, counter-suits, city clerks […]

I can’t help noticing that hard times bring out the inner totalitarian in many of our elected officials, especially those for whom I did not vote. There was a good deal of discussion and snickering when the oratorical cadences of Mayor Pete seemed to match those of B. H. Obama. It seemed as though Pete […]

Could this be the way the Democrats clear the field for the power-brokers to pick the nominee? You tell me if Joe Biden has met his Anita Hill: https://dailycaller.com/2020/03/27/joe-biden-accused-of-sexually-assault-tara-reade/ More

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome reassuring news from Dr. Birx about the COVID-19 threat. They also agree there’s a ton of wasteful spending in the relief bill but aren’t sure if forcing members back to D.C. was a great move by Rep. Thomas Massie. And they slam media outlets for believing the U.S. really has more COVID-19 cases than China and wonder whether China is hiding a second spike of the virus.

I’m sure you’ve seen the yard sign or bumper sticker. My neighbor has had one for months. It is meant to say that Trump is not a functioning adult. Clever! Whatever. I walked past it today and realized it had morphed into a Trump 2020 yard sign. Not literally, of course. Yet is undeniable that […]

Jim and Greg shudder as 3.28 million Americans lost their jobs last week. They also recoil at an alleged plot to bomb a hospital full of COVID-19 patients. But they cheer the U.S. lowering the boom on Venezuelan dictator Nicholas Maduro.

As the episode was recording, Senate Democrats and Republicans agreed in principle to a $2 trillion coronavirus relief/stimulus package. The guys discuss if it will do any good and if there will need to be another down the road.

His approval with respect to handling the epidemic has shifted strongly in his favor in the past week. First, on the epidemic. RCP compiles polls (here) on public approval of the President’s handling of the coronavirus. The figures may […]

Today, Jim and Greg applaud the practical approach of Dr. Fauci on chloroquine. They also grumble as Nancy Pelosi and Andrew Cuomo are still not sold on the COVID-19 relief bill, and Jim unloads on Bernie for still focusing on the 2020 campaign.
