Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the news that Senate Dems have virtually no hope of advancing their bill to federalize elections and BBB isn’t faring any better. They wince as the December jobs report once again comes in way below expectations. And they throw up their hands as Connecticut orders COVID-positive patients into nursing homes.

 

Happy New Year! Jim and Greg conclude the Three Martini Lunch Award season by announcing their choices for person of the year and turncoat of the year. They also make some rather sobering predictions about 2022.

 

It’s media day in our year-end Three Martini Lunch awards and Jim and Greg have plenty to say about how things were covered – if they were covered at all.  Specifically, they look at the stories the mainstream media covered far too much, the ones they conveniently ignored because they didn’t fit their narrative, and they highlight what they saw as the best stories of 2021.

 

Jim & Greg marvel at how dumb Democrats are to turn the heat up on Sen. Manchin. They also slam the FDA and the Biden administration for COVID tests being very hard to get. And their jaws drop at a new new poll showing Latinos overwhelmingly disapproving the job Biden is doing as president.

 

Join Jim and Greg as they cheer Sen. Joe Manchin’s announcement that he is a no vote on Biden’s massive “Build Back Better” spending plan full of far-left priorities. They also hammer outgoing New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio for his almost gleeful pronouncement that if you threaten to take away people’s paychecks and their ability to enjoy life, you can get them to do what you want them to. And they shake their heads as Vice President Kamala Harris claims the entire Biden administration was caught off-guard by the COVID variants this year.

Join Jim and Greg as they enjoy two good martinis along with a crazy one. They’re thrilled with the news that President Biden and Sen. Manchin remain far apart on the massive spending & entitlement legislation and a vote this year is looking more and more unlikely. They also cheer Amtrak for announcing it will not be enforcing a vaccine mandate, the latest blow to Biden’s efforts to force private companies to demand employees get the vaccine. And Jen Psaki sets herself for another day of withering fire by insisting that we’re seeing much higher prices for beef due to the “greed of meat conglomerates.”

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome research from a left-leaning firm showing that a growing number of Latino voters are very concerned that Democrats are embracing socialism and other far-left positions – and it is translating into more Latino support for Republicans. They also sigh as President Biden yet again claims there was no better way to withdraw from Afghanistan. And Jim is briefly left speechless as White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki says the Congressional Budget Office score of the latest massive spending bill is “fake.”

 

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the news that it looks rather unlikely that the Senate Democrats will be able to pass a version of the Build Back Better legislation by it’s self-imposed Christmas deadline. They also unload on the Biden administration after it cut the video feed of a presentation by a Taiwanese official who offered a presentation showing Taiwan as a different color than China on the map. And they react to Chris Wallace bolting Fox News for CNN while offering a modest suggestion for his replacement.

 

Jim and Greg are glad to see the public opposed by lopsided margins to many of the extreme provisions in the “Build Back Better” legislation. They also discuss new revelations about how involved Chris Cuomo was in helping his brother try to weather his many scandals. And they call foul on Twitter’s new policy banning any media unless everyone in the video or photo agrees to it.

 

Jim and Greg stand up and cheer for Women’s Tennis Association President Steve Simon and numerous players for publicly demanding that China prove that longtime tennis star Peng Shuai is alive and well and their her allegations of rape against a former high-ranking communist party official be seriously investigated. And they cheer Simon for willing to lose a billion dollars by pulling our of events in China if his concerns are not addressed quickly. They also cringe as the House of Representatives passes the bloated, deficit-growing spending bill known as Build Back Better, but they take a bit of solace in knowing this version likely won’t become law. And they fire back at an MSNBC columnist for telling parents that making demands about school policy and the curriculum is like telling a surgeon how to operate on your child.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the strongest public comments yet from Sen. Joe Manchin about why he cannot yet support the massive reconciliation bill. They also chronicle Terry McAuliffe’s blatant lies in the closing days of the campaign, from falsely accusing Glenn Youngkin of being anti-vaccine to grossly inflating number of kids hospitalized with COVID. And they fume as more than two dozen New York City firehouses went out of service due to first responders being unvaccinated.
