It’s a festive Friday as Jim is back to finish out the week. He and Greg wonder just how far Hillary Clinton is removed from reality as she claims voter suppression cost her key states in 2016 and that Russia will run Tulsi Gabbard as a third party candidate this year to help President Trump get re-elected. They also cringe as new polling shows incumbent Colorado GOP Sen. Cory Gardner with just 42 percent and losing to Democrat John Hickenlooper by double digits. And they close the week out by celebrating nine fun years of the Three Martini Lunch and looking forward to many more!

David French joins us for a drink today in place of Jim, who will be back on Friday. Today, David and Greg discuss the courage of Enes Kanter, a Turkish player for the Boston Celtics. In the wake of widespread NBA cowardice on China, Kanter continues to defy the repressive Turkish government even though it persecutes his family members and he faces threats against his life. They also wince at President Trump’s Twitter-esque letter urging Turkish President Erdogan to seek a cease-fire with the Kurds and blast Trump for pulling back so suddenly in Syria that our own military is scrambling to get out of there. They work in a much-needed laugh as Beto O’Rourke now admits he would have law enforcement come and take away your AR-15 and any other weapons he would ban.

At the conclusion of today’s episode, they pay tribute to the late Rep. Elijah Cummings and then remark on David’s upcoming departure from National Review to join a new venture known as The Dispatch.

Chad Benson, host of “The Chad Benson Show,” borrows Jim’s stool again today. In this episode, Chad and Greg break down the latest Democratic presidential debate. First, they get a kick out of watching Elizabeth Warren squirm out of answering whether she would raise taxes on the middle class to pay for government-run health care and watching mild-mannered Amy Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg hammer her for not answering. They also groan and protect their wallets as Warren pitches her wealth tax yet again and Andrew Yang counters by touting the horrendous value-added tax. They note how Tulsi Gabbard was the only Democrat on stage who admits President Trump won in 2016 and thinks impeachment will only help Trump in 2020. And they have fun with some of the really bad answers candidates gave when asked to name people who think differently than them but have had a profound impact on their lives.

Jim Geraghty is back and firing on all cylinders for three big stories today! First, he and Greg poster dunk on LeBron James for calling Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey “uneducated” for his tweet urging people to stand up for freedom in Hong Kong and suggesting such speech can be very harmful – to the Chinese government and NBA profits apparently. In complete contrast to LeBron’s cowardice, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes is loudly applauded for hammering his own employer for following the path of least resistance in spiking Ronan Farrow’s story on Harvey Weinstein. And they roll eyes before ripping Tom Steyer for telling supporters a win for the Democrats in 2020 means the end of the Republican Party forever and a Republican win “literally” means the end of the world.

Chad Benson, host of “The Chad Benson Show,” and Greg Corombos of Radio America serve up your Columbus Day martinis while Jim is away basking in a New York Jets victory. They start by getting a kick out of Bernie Sanders once again trying to drag Democrats to the left by telling ABC News the big difference between him and Elizabeth Warren is that she’s a capitalist and he is not. And of course, Bernie once again calls for a political revolution. They also shudder as Chinese President Xi Jinping warns that anyone trying to create divisions in China “will end in crushed bodies and shattered bones” and Chad warns that the U.S. and the rest of the world need to realize that the future will either be dominated by China or the U.S. And they react to the violent video meme depicting Trump mowing down media entities and political opponents and the furor that inevitable followed.

Happy Friday! We’re finally back to our usual format today, so join Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America to wrap up the week in style. First, they nod along as Vice President Mike Pence asks the media why they suddenly don’t care about foreign meddling in the 2016 campaign now that President Trump wants some answers. They also feel ill as Golden State Coach Steve Kerr suggests an absurd moral equivalence between the U.S. and China. And they have fun with Rep. Tulsi Gabbard threatening to boycott the Democratic presidential debate she just qualified for.

Hey, we finally we have a good martini and it only took us until Thursday! Today, Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America appreciate a bipartisan group of lawmakers blasting the NBA for kowtowing to China. They also slam the Biden campaign for whining that the New York Times is making common cause with Breitbart.com by covering Hunter Biden’s overseas activities. And they hammer President Trump for not worrying if thousands of ISIS prisoners go free because of Turkey’s attack on the Kurds because most would only wind up in Europe again.

More

The search is still on for a good martini this week. Today, Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America react to the Turkish military striking Kurdish targets just two days after the U.S. announced it would move forces out of the area so Turkey could attack one of our closest allies in the fight against ISIS. They also shudder at rape allegations against former “Today” show host Matt Lauer and at new revelations about the steps NBC executives took to downplay Lauer’s actions and stop journalist Ronan Farrow from releasing his Harvey Weinstein story that started the #MeToo movement. And they recoil as two NBA fans are removed from an NBA game in the U.S. for bringing signs and voicing support for Hong Kong.

More

No bad martinis in sight today. Nope, we’ve got all crazy ones for you! Today, Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America shake their heads as outspoken liberal Golden State Warriors Coach Steve Kerr suddenly has no opinion on China throwing a fit over one pro-Hong Kong tweet from a general manager in the league. They also roll their eyes as CBS announces it will be making a miniseries out of former FBI Director James Comey’s book about his career. And they react to the very different opinions of GOP Trump challengers Joe Walsh and Mark Sanford, as Walsh demands impeachment and Sanford says he will probably vote for Trump if the president wins the GOP nomination next year.

More

We’ve got nothing but bad martinis today. Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are frustrated by President Trump ordering the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Syria, even as Turkey specifically says it wants us gone so it can attack our Kurdish allies who did more than anyone else in the region to confront ISIS. Jim and Greg also swat away the NBA’s pathetic apology to China after the general manager of the Houston Rockets tweeted out that people should stand with Hong Kong. And they groan as they see polls for the upcoming legislative races in Virginia looking very rough for Republicans.

More

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America welcome a solid September jobs report, including a lower unemployment rate and a reduction in people leaving the labor force. They also break down the text messages among U.S. diplomats about President Trump’s approach to Ukraine, with one clearly seeing a quid pro quo and one saying it’s definitely not. And they comment on AOC declaring she’s bored with impeachment and just wants to get it done so she can keep her eyes “on the prize of social and economic and racial justice.”

More

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America look forward to Clint Eastwood’s new film about how the FBI and media convinced America Richard Jewell was the Olympic Park bomber back in 1996, ruined the man’s life, and obviously learned very little from this debacle. They’re hopeful the movie will tell the truth about an ugly chapter in American history. They also unload on House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, who was caught lying about his office having contact with the whistleblower before the complaint was filed. And they react to President Trump not only doubling down on his urging of Ukraine to investigates Joe and Hunter Biden but for China to start investigating them as well.

More

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Rich McFadden of Radio America tackle two good martinis and one crazy as Rich sits in for Greg Corombos. First, they marvel at President Trump’s $125 million fundraising haul in the third quarter of 2019. They also notice brewing tensions on the far left as Bernie Sanders starts criticizing Elizabeth Warren for refusing to admit she will have to raise taxes to pay for her progressive agenda. And they shake their heads as Trump reportedly advocated a snake-filled moat at the border and for border agents to shoot people in the legs if they were coming in illegally.

More

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America get a kick out of watching Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and Sen. Elizabeth Warren battle over whether the government ought to break up big tech. With little appetite for Warren’s big government intrusion or Zuckerberg’s pathetic efforts to protect user privacy and free speech, Jim and Greg plan to enjoy watching these two liberals devour each other. They also slam President Trump for cheerfully congratulating China on it’s 70th anniversary since the communists took hold in 1949, making no reference to China’s brutal repression of people and freedom that continues to this very day. And they hammer the Washington Post for running an op-ed fantasizing about impeaching both Trump and Vice President Mike Pence so Nancy Pelosi can become president.

More

We’re off to an all-crazy start in what promises to be a crazy week! Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America throw up their hands as President Trump goes on a Twitter rant demanding House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff be investigated for treason and quoting allies suggesting that impeachment could lead to another civil war. They also unload on Joe Biden and his campaign for demanding that the media stop interviewing Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani. And they almost start to feel sorry for Hillary Clinton as she keeps talking about winning the popular vote and accusing Trump of being “an illegitimate president” almost three years after the election.

More

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are surprised to see prominent Trump critics David Brooks and John Kasich saying Democrats are moving way too quickly on impeachment. They also get a big laugh out of New York Times podcast host Michael Barbaro demanding that people leave the children of political candidates alone – while specifically referring to 49-year-old Hunter Biden. And they roll their eyes hard as Prince Harry says he has trouble getting out of bed some days because he is so concerned about the future of the planet.

More

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America take note of how it took less than 48 hours for Democrats to turn the impeachment process into a farce as House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff opened Thursday’s hearing with a stunningly twisted version of the transcript documenting the Trump-Zelensky phone call in July. They also walk through the declassified whistleblower report and point out what is likely to matter most as this process moves along. And they get a kick out of Elizabeth Warren changing her mind on whether it’s OK for the children of vice presidents to sit on the boards of foreign companies.

More

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America go through the transcript of the Trump phone call with Ukrainian Pres. Volodymyr Zelensky and conclude virtually no minds will be changed by it when it comes to impeachment. They also explain why the transcript is still bad for President Trump and possibly Joe Biden. And they get a good laugh at 2016 presidential afterthought and fake conservative Evan McMullin taking credit for the launch of the House impeachment inquiry.

More

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are glad to see France, Germany, and the UK conclude that Iran attacked Saudi Arabia earlier this month and that there is no other plausible explanation. They also groan over the political circus about to begin as House Democrats appear to be moving en masse towards impeachment and even President Trump seems to like the idea of getting impeached because it would help him win re-election. And they discuss the dystopian world Bernie Sanders wants us all to live in as he proposes a ludicrous wealth tax to pay for the massive expansion of government that he envisions.

More

Join Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America as they serve up some strong martinis to start the week. First, they find an odd appreciation for Sen. Cory Booker’s campaign admitting it needs to raise $1.7 million by the end of the month to have any chance at being competitive for the Democratic nomination – and it makes Jim wonder why several other weak candidates haven’t already closed up shop. They also shake their heads as a lot of House Republicans don’t want to be there anymore. Many of them understandably hate being in the minority but Jim offers another, more serious reason for why a lot of conservatives want out of Washington. And they have no patience for the Shut Down DC climate protesters who snarled traffic in Washington this morning by demonstrating on several critical roads and intersections.
