It’s all good news on Tuesday’s Three Martini Lunch! Join Jim and Greg as they cheer a new rule which no longer requires many nonprofits to disclose donors to the IRS. They also cheer retail sales from May more than doubling expectations and suggesting Americans are ready to buy again. And they cheer politicians in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn for defying New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and busting open locked playgrounds in response to the city’s heavy-handed crackdown on the Orthodox Jewish community over COVID restrictions.

Join Jim and Greg as they react to the Minneapolis City Council announcing an end to the police department but only after a year of community discussions. They also react to school officials in three major cities deciding to stop having resource officers in the schools. And they unload on New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio yet again for his personal and professional approaches to the coronavirus.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome Louisville’s decision to end no-knock warrants. They also hammer Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan for claiming nothing is really different in Seattle, despite the creation of CHAZ, the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, where police are not allowed in and reports of violent crime are on the rise. And they welcome the news that the Lake of the Ozarks pool party and symptomatic hair stylists have not led to outbreaks of COVID-19. They also embark on fun tangents about “Law & Order” and the 2020 convention season.

Join Jim and Greg as they enjoy watching former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper blame his ethics problems on “dark money” Republicans after an independent commission found him guilty of improperly accepting gifts while in office. But will it really damage his bid for U.S. Senate? They also shake their heads as Washington Gov. Jay Inslee pretends not to know a group of radicals is claiming several square blocks in Seattle as ” an “autonomous state” that is separate from the United States. And as the cancel culture claims the TV shows “COPS” and “Live: PD,” they fire back at the unhinged push against the Nickelodeon cartoon “Paw Patrol.”

Join Jim and Greg as they finally find some good news this week. They start by applauding Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for calling out the double standard of governors and mayors who ignore COVID restrictions for some and drop the hammer on others. They also appreciate Bernie Sanders strongly opposing the abolition of police when some of those leading the defund police charge seem to be part of his clientele. And they react to Dr. Deborah Birx lamenting the destruction of dozens of COVID test sites in the recent riots.

Join Jim and Greg as they cringe over President Trump’s tweet targeting a 75-year-old protester who suffered a head injury following a confrontation with Buffalo police. They also throw up their hands as the Minnesota State Patrol admits its officers slashed tires of some unoccupied vehicles during the recent riots, with an explanation that defies credulity. And they unload…again…on the World Health Organization for fostering massive confusion by suggesting that asymptomatic COVID patients very rarely infected other people – and the correction only made things even more confusing.

Join Jim and Greg for one of the craziest Three Martini Lunches we’ve ever had! First, they dissect the ludicrous push to defend and dismantle police departments and react to Minneapolis City Council President Lisa Bender suggesting crime victims who would normally call the cops need to understand their privilege by not having police come. They also hammer public health “experts” for declaring that the racial justice protests are more important than stopping the coronavirus, but other protests should not go forward, and stay-at-home protests are rooted in white nationalism. And they chronicle the New York Times fully surrendering to the woke mob.

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.

Join Jim and Greg as they react to former Defense Secretary Gen. James Mattis slamming President Trump’s use of the military in response to massive protests in recent days, with Jim contending Mattis shouldn’t be able to drop a rhetorical bomb like that and slip away without scrutiny. They also fire back to the fierce condemnation against the New York Times – including from Times staffers – because the editors ran an opinion piece from Sen. Tom Cotton that they don’t like. And they fume as so many athletes and others invoke cancel culture against New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees after Brees suggested that kneeling during the national anthem was disrespectful.

Join Jim and Greg as they reflect on Iowa Rep. Steve King losing his GOP primary and Valerie Plame going up in political flames in her congressional bid in New Mexico. With politicians cracking down on everyday social distance violators but encouraging the demonstrators to take to the streets in close quarters, just how much of our stay-at-home orders was politics and how much was about public health? And they welcome the World Health Organization close to reality as reports suggest it knew about China’s lies and stalling tactics in the critical early days of the pandemic.

Join Jim and Greg as they unload on New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio for his horrific lack of leadership that paved the way to another night of looting and destruction in his city and his massive double standard on who can gather in public. They also react to the Democrats in Fairfax County, Virginia, retweeting a message saying “riots are an integral part of this country’s march toward progress.” And Jim has a surprising reaction as Clinton White House spokesman Joe Lockhart suggests the Minnesota Vikings should sign Colin Kaepernick as a response to the death of George Floyd.

Join Jim and Greg as they marvel at the SpaceX launch, celebrate the plummeting COVID-19 numbers in Italy, and unload on destructive rioters and feeble “leaders” as dozens of American cities descend into chaos.

Four bad martinis to close out the week, all related to the unrest in Minnesota last night. First, Jim and Greg slam local officials for simply abandoning the neighborhood near the third police precinct to widespread arson and rioting while shaking their heads as MSNBC’s Ali Velshi claims most people are not “unruly” while a giant fire rages behind him. They cringe as Hennepin County Prosecutor Mike Freeman told reporters Thursday there was evidence suggesting there was no criminal conduct committed against George Floyd and as President Trump and Twitter go to war over social media in the midst of all this. And they’re dumbfounded as the Minnesota State Patrol arrests a CNN crew that was being cooperative and clearly stating they were media. Finally, they learn as they record that Officer Chauvin will be arrested for the murder of Floyd.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the nearly unanimous public condemnation of the treatment of George Floyd and that there must be justice in the case. They also note that some will try to use the looting and arson from Wednesday night to drives wedges in that united front. They also unload on New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo for having the gall to suggest that nursing homes are to blame for accepting COVID-positive patients when New York forbid nursing homes from rejecting such patients or even testing incoming patients for COVID-19. And as CBS is forced to make layoffs in the news division, they’re stunned to see news reports that the list reportedly includes respected White House reporter Mark Knoller.

It’s all bad martinis today! After a brief commentary on the CDC still not getting its coronavirus guidelines straight, Jim and Greg groan for the First Amendment as Twitter starts meddling with free speech and President Trump starts threatening government regulation of social media. They also shudder at the death of George Floyd at the hands of four Minneapolis police officers, which was caught on video. And they discuss the story of the “Central Park Karen” and whether being cooped up for months has some people itching for confrontations.

Join Jim and Greg as they discuss the stunning hypocrisy of Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and her husband and other Democratic governors over Memorial Day weekend. Greg also shares a very disturbing story about voting by mail in his home state. They also shudder as President Trump spend time on Twitter trying to implicate MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough in the death of a congressional intern nearly 20 years ago. And they react to economic officials from the Clinton and Obama administrations admit they are terrified that the economy could be rebounding by Election Day.

We’re ending the week with all crazy martinis! First, we dissect the partisan fury of Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel who says President Trump is no longer welcome in the state because he didn’t wear a mask before cameras while visiting a Ford plant on Thursday. They also hammer Joe Biden for telling a prominent black talk show host, “If you have a problem figuring out if you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.” And they react to President Trump unloading on Fox News for not doing more to help him and other Republicans win.

Join Jim and Greg as they applaud Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for his vigorous defense of his successful strategy to mitigate coronavirus in his state and for calling out the media narrative that insisted his approach would be a disaster. They also note that two Democratic cities in Virginia just handed the majorities on their city councils to Republicans as a backlash to the recent gun control push in the commonwealth. And they groan heavily as Sen. Kamala Harris is introducing legislation to condemn using terms like “Chinese virus” or “Wuhan Flu” as racist.

It’s all crazy martinis today! Join Jim and Greg as they respond to MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski begging Twitter to start censoring Trump’s tweets. They also have little use for Matt Lauer re-emerging and portraying himself as a victim. And they unload on the bizarre coverage of Joe Biden’s options for a running mate, drooling over the thoroughly unqualifed Stacey Abrams while doing no work to research far more viable options.

Join Jim and Greg as they celebrate courts in Wisconsin and Oregon siding with freedom over heavy-handed governors, although Oregon Supreme Court just overruled the lower court and sided with the governor. They’re also exasperated as President Trump takes hydroxychloroquine, despite testing negative for coronavirus, in the latest salvo in this bizarre battle over whether the drug helps treat COVID-19. They also hammer House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for making the fight even more juvenile. And they respond to a liberal opinion writer in the New York Times pathetically changing what they really meant by #BelieveWomen so it doesn’t apply to Joe Biden and Tara Reade.
