Join Greg and Ricochet Editor-in-Chief Jon Gabriel as they dissect the leaking of a draft majority opinion that shows a majority of Supreme Court justices prepared to overturn Roe v. Wade. First, they discuss the significant damage the leak may do to the functioning and credibility of the Supreme Court. They also highlight why they hope the draft will be the majority opinion in terms of shifting abortion back to the states and why the pro-life movement clearly has a legal high ground. And they react to some of the most unhinged statements from Democrats in response to the breaking news.

Join Jim and Greg as they review the latest predictions out of the Cook Political Report and  UVA Crystal Ball, which shifted 11 house races toward the Republicans. Many races were updated from ‘Likely R’ to ‘Safe R’, but it casts an ominous shadow over the Democrats’ chances of keeping the House in a critical midterm election. They also cringe at MSNBC host Nicole Wallace for calling Gov. Ron DeSantis’ education bill “dehumanizing” and comparing him and Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin Russian soldiers raping Ukrainian children. And despite being even older than Joe Biden, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is considering running for president in 2024, according to a leaked memo.

During the 1996 State of the Union Address President Clinton famously said, “The era of big government is over.” of course that was not true, it was not true for Clinton, Bush, Obama, Trump, and is most certainly not true under Biden. Both the Republican and Democratic party leadership have not a clue what their […]

Join Jim and Greg as they credit Republicans for keeping a treasure trove of opposition research on Raphael Warnock quiet until the Georgia Senate runoff. Now  they are highlighting Warnock’s radical statements on many different issues. They also walk through a number of burdensome new COVID restrictions, including Pennsylvania’s requirement to wear masks in your own home if you have guests, and contrast that with politicians like California Gov. Gavin Newsom who don’t think the rules apply to them. And they get a kick out of watching Bernie Sanders supporters become deeply disappointed with Joe Biden as he names corporate figures to most positions in his inner circle.

It almost seems like this election is more critical even than defeating Hillary. She wasn’t liked but Biden is so weak and now there are far-left types on the prowl. Who knows what has been promised to Bernie and AOC etc? I heard a few moments of Bernie saying that those forces would help Biden […]

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.

I Attended a Bernie Rally, but Did Not ‘Feel the Bern’

 

On a gorgeous February evening, I was sipping on a glass of white wine with the balcony door flung open when I heard John Lennon’s anthem “Power to the People” blaring through a loudspeaker in the distance.

I tapped my toes to the catchy tune and wasn’t surprised by the roar of applause that followed. I was surprised when I heard a voice that I’ve long thought sounds like an angry muppet supervillain who would star in a movie about trying to control the lives of Kermit the Frog and crew.

Is it really that hard to find out who won? Grab a stool as Jim and Greg unload on the Iowa Democratic Party for insisting on a maddeningly convoluted process and failing to ensure that the technology used to transmit results was actually working.  As a result, by midday Tuesday, no one knew who won or what the delegate totals look like.  After hammering the Democrats for the lousy process and general incompetence, they explain how the Republican caucuses look clear and simple by comparison while noting that President Trump’s GOP challengers are barely even noticeable.  Finally, with conspiracy theories already flying about how Democrats are out to deny Bernie or protect Biden or that the failed app may have artificially boosted Pete Buttigieg, Jim and Greg fear Iowa’s debacle will further erode confidence that election results can be taken at face value.

Important, Timely (nod to Speaker Pelosi) Questions

 

It’s “time,” as Speaker Pelosi might prayerfully suggest, to get answers to these perplexing questions.

On Joe Biden and the impeachment:

Question 1: How, in an extended Senate impeachment trial, will continued daylight directed at the various Biden family entrepreneurial activities help ol’ Joe politically?

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America marvel at the civic illiteracy in the gun debate, as Fox Business Network host Trish Regan asserts that President Trump could simply issue an executive order to ban assault weapons. They also discuss Trump’s bizarre fascination with possibly commuting the prison sentence of disgraced former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich. And they have a lot of fun with Bernie Sanders and Joe Rogan discussing whether a President Sanders would reveal everything the government knows about aliens and UFO’s.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America discuss reports that the Justice Department’s Inspector General plans to allege former FBI Director James Comey lied to Trump about the Russia investigation and even spied on him. They also relish Bernie Sanders acknowledging reality as he bumps up staffers’ hourly pay by cutting back on their hours. And they debate Wendy Davis’ electoral prospects in Texas as she launches a run for Congress.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America chuckle at Bernie Sanders reportedly underpaying his unionized staffers while promising to raise the federal minimum wage. They discuss reports that John Delaney is facing pressure from his own team to withdraw from the presidential race. And they share a laugh at CNN and Wolf Blitzer for their over the top handling of the draw for the July 30 and July 31 Democratic debates.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and guest host Gregory Knapp discuss the Mexican government deploying 10,000 troops to the border to crack down on illegal immigration to the U.S. They cover the real concentration camps that the Chinese have constructed. And they discuss Bernie Sanders’ plan to wipe out all student loans.

Rob Long of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America discuss President Trump’s last-minute decision to hold off on striking Iran. They also cover the intensifying Democratic presidential campaign, as Joe Biden and Cory Booker scuffle over race and Bernie Sanders explains why he’s now neck-and-neck with Elizabeth Warren in the polls. And they talk about the desperate poverty facing many Cubans as socialism fails yet again.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club political podcast for May 29, 2019. It is the Average White Man edition of the show with your well above average white men hosts radio guy Todd Feinburg and AI guy Mike Stopa. This week’s edition, number 226 (!!!!), features tales of white men and black men, heroism and infamy, glory and shame.

First, the race within the race: research shows that the Democrats would prefer a female to a male presidential candidate, a person of color to a caucasian. So why then are the leading Dem candidates average white (old) males? We discuss.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America cheer new poll numbers showing Americans overwhelming reject the idea of felons voting from behind bars, an idea promoted by Sen. Bernie Sanders.  They also shudder at reports – apparently from Michael Cohen – that Cohen helped Liberty University President Jerry Falwell, Jr. squash the possible release of highly embarrassing photos, and that eventually triggered Falwell’s endorsement of Trump in early 2016.  And Jim unleashes a terrific rant in response to the pro-choice CNN guest who says a pregnant woman does not have a human being inside of her.

The other day I put up a post about my experience in the Soviet Union and compared that to what Bernie Sanders had to say after his trip to the USSR. In the comments someone mentioned that Sanders said we had too many choices in America, something that you do not see when central planners […]

Why Pulitzer Winner Michael P. Ramirez Suggests “Clinton Shouldn’t Get a Pass”

 

Should the Trump Administration investigate the Clinton Foundation and Hillary’s emails? Two-time Pulitzer award winning political cartoonist Michael P. Ramirez discusses where Trump should focus his efforts, the Obama scandals, the Supreme Court, Cuba, socialism in America, California, and much more. Michael’s cartoons can be seen daily in over 400 newspapers, some of which are discussed in this interview aboard the Weekly Standard Cruise.

It’s not everyday you visit an artist sitting on a Tyrannosaurus Rex sized poop. We see political art in different forms; Michael Ramirez‘s devastating cartoons, Roman Genn‘s insightful National Review cover art, and there’s what’s been called ‘street’ or ‘guerilla’ art by Sabo. Good political artists can take controversial or divisive issues and cause people of all ideological […]
