Join Jim and Greg as they welcome two more states making progress on election integrity. They also cringe at the April jobs report coming in way below expectations. And they react to Democrats and activists using the absurd, supposedly inclusive term of “birthing people” instead of mothers.

Jim is back! Join Jim and Greg as they cheer Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp for speaking the truth about the new Georgia elections bill and contrasting it with the hyperbolic lies of the left. They also examine the bizarre effort of what Jim calls the “Democrat outrage complex” to get the Major League All-Star Game moved from Atlanta. And they welcome the news the Democrats are no longer trying to steal an Iowa congressional seat but the excuse for giving up the effort is truly pathetic.

Boycott the 2022 Winter Olympics in China

 

Almost anytime I see the word “boycott,” I either cringe or turn away. In my experience, boycotts are ineffective, political statements that have little power to make a difference. They can have mixed agendas, such as the Boycott-Divest-Sanction (BDS) movement against Israel; or they can make an immediate statement, such as the boycott called against Goya Foods, which actually increased the company’s sales and visibility.

But the most recent boycott discussion against the 2022 Winter Olympics in China has gotten my attention. On many levels, the U.S. taking a stand against the CCP, in particular, could make an impactful statement against a regime that has made no secret about its goal to become the most powerful country in the world. I’m going to make the case for pursuing a boycott against China, because the country needs to be held to account on multiple levels.

https://archinect.com/news/article/150048560/austin-in-favor-of-boycotting-companies-involved-in-trump-s-border-wall Can the Congress add a feature to its sanctuary cities disciplinary policy that includes this type of border security interference (by contractor harassment)? It certainly seems counter to national security related efforts to find best qualified contractors at least cost. I can see where we can’t prohibit private behavior campaigns, but should a state […]

I’ve often wondered why discrimination in commercial transactions is biased towards one party in the transaction. If a baker declines to bake a cake for a gay wedding, he may be sued for discrimination. The plaintiffs will argue that the baker has no right to discriminate against them by refusing to sell them a cake. […]

Well, it had to start somewhere, and after the Cowboys lost today (didn’t see it) the MSM asked Owner Jerry Jones how he felt about Vice President Pence walking out on the Colts-49ers game after eleven 49ers took a knee during the national anthem. Jones went OFF. “I don’t know about that. But if there […]

NFL, Hollywood, Match.com, and Cupcakes: No Fun for You!

 

I married into a Pittsburgh family. Not just any Pittsburgh family, but a die-hard Steeler family. Twenty years ago our wedding rehearsal dinner was held at a fancy restaurant atop Mt. Washington that looked into the old Three Rivers Stadium. The bright stadium lights were turned on in tribute to our eventual doomed marriage (we’re friends today … it’s all good).

In the mid-’90s, with no home team, I adopted the winningest football club in the NFL that brought us legends such as Green, Bradshaw, Harris, Swann, and Lambert. Today’s Steelers are continuing the tradition of winning with future Hall of Famers Roethlisberger, Bell, and Brown, among others. Living on the West Coast over the last two decades, the only option to see every Pittsburgh game was to invest in the Sunday Ticket package which costs a few hundred hard-earned ducats. My family doesn’t spend much at the movies, shell out for pay-per-view events, and thankfully outgrew video games, but DirectTV would get our perennial donation so we could watch the majesty that is Steelers football.

No matter what else is going on in their world, each autumn Sunday my kids with their Mom and Hudson “the wonder retriever,” bleed black and gold. The meals are prepared ahead, the phone isn’t answered, and don’t even think about changing the channel. Seriously. One Sunday with Pittsburgh comfortably ahead, I had the audacity to turn to another game and … well, let’s just say Dad had to find ice for his bruised stubby fingers.

(I thought I would repost my article from September 9 since the topic has recently become so huge.) To all those who find comfort in the largest Republican majorities in American government at the national and state levels since the 1920s – you probably shouldn’t. That’s because the insane dismantling of America and Western Civilization […]

Greg Gutfeld moved to retire the word “snowflake” this week on The Five, suggesting that some conservatives were themselves becoming snowflakes.  I have succumbed to trolling on the left of so-called snowflake behavior on the right, mashing my keyboard in frustration of the equating of the snowflakery of the Left with what many were calling […]

A few years back, in furtherance of president obama’s (sic) anti-gun agenda, Bank of America got ahead of the curve of “Operation Chokepoint” and fired Barrett Firearms as a customer. Lumping a legal gun manufacturer (and supplier of the US Army) with paycheck lenders and trying to deny them banking services under this heavy-handed justice […]

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political podcast for December 6, 2016, it’s the Trump’s Taiwan On Strategy edition of the podcast, brought to you by Stamps.com, SimpliSafe and DonorsTrust.

Today we discuss – Trumps phone call diplomacy with Taiwan. The Taiwanese government is no doubt in ecstasy that after forty years of one China policy – where the one China was someone other than them – that the new President-elect was either cunning enough or bumbling enough to get himself on the phone with Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen. We share some secret insight that we have from a Taiwanese diplomat acquaintance who shall remain nameless.

The troublesome Oscars monologue, the least important, most perfunctory part of the show–the leave your coats & pay your tickets part of the spectacle–the unpleasant prelude to celebrity worship–the strange, embarrassing attempt on the part of the Academy to be part of the popular culture–well, this year it had uncharacteristic bite to it, & is […]

Jada Pinkett Smith is having a viral moment after calling for a boycott of the Oscars due to a lack of diversity in the Academy’s nominations. To that end, she released the above video on MLK Day, stating that she would not be watching the awards ceremony and that it was time for the black […]
