Join Jim and Greg as they cheer a May jobs report that was more than 10 million jobs better than the experts predicted. They also groan as the New York Times leadership continues to grovel to its millennial and Gen Z staffers who remain traumatized that an opinion column they don’t agree with ended up in the paper. And they use pop culture and common sense to explain why the plans of some Minneapolis City Council members to “dismantle” the police are insane and counterproductive.

    Their policy recommendations are serious…seriously flawed.

    Jim, you may scoff at the calls to dismantle the police as being cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs, but they’re dead serious, and they know what they’re doing. Unleashing the criminals on the populace is a good way to keep people humiliated and oppressed. Look at Venezuela, where armed gangs of Tupamaros, with the blessing of the Chavistas, randomly speed through the streets, shooting all and sundry. Rapes and thefts and arson and murders are not prosecuted. 

    These people are organized and they’ve studied other instances where governments were deposed—Bolsheviks, Castro, Chávez—and they won’t stop until they do the same here or until they’re stopped.

    Too many people are brainwashed into the cult of Wokeness, or at least are completely intimidated by them. Only the brown shirts are missing. It can happen here. There’s nothing funny about it.

    In Italy, they wore black. They are not missing. They are here.
