And they listen to another radical whom Loudoun County, Virginia, paid half a million dollars to stress that schools are no longer about learning.

 

Rob Long in for Jim today.  Rob and Greg get a kick out of Democrats in multiple states gearing up for 2022 by not mentioning they are Democrats or by criticizing their own party. They also shudder as economists expect this inflation to last for years and media acts like Biden policies have nothing to do with it. And they discuss how horribly wrong President Biden was in claiming the illegal immigration surge at our border would taper off when the summer heat arrived.

Rob Long is in for Jim. Today, Rob and Greg serve up two good martinis, plus a bad and a crazy.  They start by getting a kick out of the Texas Dems’ PR stunt getting more bizarre, as five members test positive for COVID while they remain on the lam.  They welcome public denunciation of China’s destructive hacking efforts but wonder just how tough the world will get in confronting Beijing.  They also fire back at White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki for suggesting that a user who is banned on one social platform for “misinformation” should be banned on all of them. And they get a kick out of the government renaming animals like Asian carp and gypsy moths to avoid offending someone.

This is no small task for Jenna, who lives in Minneapolis, a place Dave described as “Mad Max territory,” after months of riots, arson, a spike in violent crime even as the city works to defund the police.

Rob Long is in for Jim again today.  Today, Rob and Greg kick off the 2020 Major League Baseball season by enjoying a parody of how the Washington Nationals are failing to keep up with today’s woke cultural standards.  Then they cheer the U.S. for closing down the Chinese consulate in Houston.  They also chronicle a massive failure in Minneapolis as the effort to replace police there proves rather challenging.  And they roll their eyes as Joe Biden claims President Trump is America’s first racist president for calling the coronavirus the Chinese virus.  They also use the opportunity to bash the most racist president of in American history.

Rob Long is in for Jim today.  He and Greg appreciate the climate change crowd joining other far left activists in admitting what we’ve known for decades – that their real goal is to kill capitalism.  Rob also tears into New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo for his ongoing celebration of himself and for claiming people from other states are now flocking to New York to be safe from the virus.  Rob also explains why countless New York businesses are on the brink of collapse because of Cuomo’s callousness.  And they have fun with Berkeley, California’s decision to have unarmed civilian city workers make traffic stops instead of police.

Rob Long is in for Jim today.  Join Rob and Greg as they welcome encouraging news about a coronavirus vaccine.  They also unload on the United Teachers Los Angeles union for wanting Medicare for All, a moratorium on new charter schools, a wealth tax, and defunding of police before they’re comfortable going back into the classroom.  And they have fun with the most predictable news of 2020…John Kasich will be speaking at the Democratic National Convention.

Your Friday martinis are served as Rob Long fills in for Jim. Today, they applaud Tim Scott for pointing out the Democrats didn’t block police reform because of what was in the bill but because of who was proposing it.

And they have fun with the news $1.4 billion in stimulus checks were sent out to dead people.

Rob Long is in for Jim again Thursday. Today, Rob and Greg applaud Seattle businesses for suing the city for failing to provide essential services while local politicians coddled the radicals in the CHAZ/CHOP area.  They also react to revelations in Peter Strzok’s notes that Barack Obama and Joe Biden were in on the planning to target Michael Flynn and the Trump administration.  And they unload on leftist radicals and their enablers as what supposedly started as an effort to rein in police brutality is now focused on tearing down a statue celebrating emancipation, destroying Mount Rushmore, and changing our national anthem.

Rob Long is in for Jim again Wednesday. Today, they celebrate the news that the FBI found no evidence of a hate crime in connection to a “noose” found in the garage of Bubba Wallace but that doesn’t stop Wallace and Al Sharpton from insisting something sinister happened. They also slam House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for saying the Republican police reform bill is tantamount to them getting away with the murder of George Floyd. And they discuss the primary election results showing another AOC-like Democrat headed to Congress from New York and wonder how America will react to vote counts lasting several days or even weeks come November.

Rob Long is in for Jim Geraghty again.  He and Greg rip into far left activist Shaun King for wanting all “European” depictions of Jesus torn down and discuss that the real target of many on the far left is not just religious artwork but the church itself.  They also weigh in on why many police are doing nothing to stop the vandalism and destruction of statues and monuments and they address the political debate arising on the right about whether the police ought to clamp down and protect these properties or whether images of endless rioting are going to lead to more votes for Republicans in November.  And they have fun with New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who did nothing about rioting but is now on the warpath against illegal fireworks dealers.

Rob Long is in for Jim again today and he and Greg are tackling three crazy martinis.  First, they wade into the fight over the Theodore Roosevelt statue outside New York City’s Museum of Natural History, and Rob offers a deal to those who want to tear it down. They also discuss the drama surrounding the supposed resignation of U.S. Attorney Geoffery Berman, who then said he had not resigned and would not leave, only to be fired the next day. And they weigh in on Brett Favre likening Colin Kaepernick to Pat Tillman because both gave up NFL careers for the causes they believed in.

National Review Online Contributing Editor Rob Long joins Greg today to serve up your end-of-the-week martinis. First, they get a kick out of Amy Klobuchar taking herself out of the Biden veepstakes when it was already pretty clear she would not be the choice, but they also appreciate her kneecapping Elizabeth Warren’s chances by saying the running mate should be a woman of color. But that gets complicated too, as Rob and Greg react to Black Lives Matter and National Action Network figures suggesting Florida Rep. Val Demings is not really black because she used to be a police officer. And they unpack a lefty blogger’s contention that conservatives should not be able to teach, coach, or be a boss of any kind because they supposedly don’t believe in equality.
