It’s finally Friday! Yes, we are fully aware of the impeachment votes in the House Judiciary Committee but Jim sums up his analysis in roughly two seconds as we begin today’s podcast. After that Jim and Greg celebrate the big win for the Conservative Party in the UK and are thrilled to report the political demise of Jeremy Corbyn. They are also hoping that the substance matches the excitement as Congress prepares to pass the U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade agreement to replace NAFTA and President Trump announces agreement on “phase one” of trade negotiations with China. And Jim details why Joe Biden’s campaign could face serious turbulence after reports that Hunter Biden had a 1988 drug arrest expunged at the same time Sen. Biden was advocating for very tough drug crime sentencing.

    Hasn’t Biden (Slow Joe) already been apologizing for supposedly being tough on crime, in his youth? (i.e., his 60s.)

    And the news from Britain isn’t all that great. It should have been far more lop-sided. Sure, the Conservatives won 365 seats. But Labo(u)r still got 203. Which shows that a lot of Brits still aren’t very Bright.

    Each party in the UK will issue a “Manifesto,” before the election, not unlike an American Party’s “Platform.” Even the Conservatives will present a “Manifesto”!

    Greg and Jim noted that the Tories had a pithy slogan of “Enough.” In 1946, the Republican Party had the almost as pithy slogan of “Had enough? Vote Republican.”

    “Republicans blamed Truman for the country’s problems, and ran on the slogan ‘Had Enough? Vote Republican.'” https://www.conservapedia.com/1946_Midterm_Elections
