Jim and Greg discuss House Speaker Kevin McCarthy rejecting Reps. Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell for the House Intelligence Committee, with Jim explaining why the move is good politics and good policy. They also groan as Rep. George Santos criticizes comedians and other politicians for making fun of his serial mendacity. And as former Vice President Mike Pence admits having classified documents, they wonder just how many of our top officials are careless with sensitive materials.

Join Jim and Greg as they cringe at reports that December’s illegal border crossings will hit a record high and possibly reach 250,000, and Jim wonders why the numbers keep coming out later and later. They also shake their heads as White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre keeps dodging questions about the Biden classified documents or referring people to sources she knows won’t say anything. Finally, they marvel as Biden climate envoy John Kerry publicly hails himself and others in a “select group of human beings” who are in position to “save the planet.”

Join Jim and Greg as they assess the news that another classified document was discovered at Biden’s Wilmington, Delaware, home. They also groan as New York Gov. Kathy Hochul plows forward with plans to ban gas appliances or gas hookups in construction in the coming years – even in the face of massive public backlash to the Biden administration’s agenda on gas stoves. Finally, Jim comes ready to mock the latest lefty speech banning into oblivion as the University of Southern California and the State of Michigan decide that “field” – as in “field work” – is racist and offensive to people of color. And just when we thought today’s podcast was over…it wasn’t.

Join Jim & Greg as they discuss formal research into what we’ve known for years – that Russian social media memes made virtually no impact on the outcome of the 2016 presidential election. They also react to reports that classified documents from President Biden’s days as vice president were discovered at his office at the University of Pennsylvania. And they pop some popcorn as Biden tries to pressure the Democrats to move Georgia up in the 2024 primary calendar, while New Hampshire and other states fight to stay at the front of the line.

There is a direct correlation between the physical security of classified documents and the physical safety of our country’s most important sources of intelligence. When document security is compromised, human sources of intelligence are also compromised. We have several decades of incontrovertible evidence – dead and missing intelligence assets – demonstrating this is true. All […]

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud the Interior Department for announcing open-air memorials and national parks not requiring staffing will stay open in the event of a partial government shutdown, a very different approach than the Obama administration barricading memorials to war veterans to make a political point.  They also hammer Senate Democrats for planning to block a bill that would keep the government open and point out the blatant hypocrisy and deception being employed by the Democrats to justify their tactics.  And they tell House Republicans that the FISA memo better be a massive bombshell or else the GOP is going to look pretty silly over the hype.  They also tell the GOP that if they want it released to the public, they should just vote on it and be done with it.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America welcome reports of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s death and Jim offers some super helpful tips to anyone looking to take his place. They also address Fox and Friends’ retraction after they overstated the level of classified information that former FBI Director James Comey revealed in his memos. And they ridicule Sen. Bernie Sanders for his outrageous and hysterical claims that the GOP healthcare bill will result in thousands of deaths every year if it passes.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America have a field day as government contractor Reality Winner is arrested for leaking classified information to the media. They also unload on Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, who tries to leave the impression that Russia manipulated the actual vote tallies in 2016 while also admitting that there is no evidence for it. And they discuss the Trump administration’s failed attempts to assemble a war room to push back against former FBI Director James Comey’s upcoming testimony.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America discuss reports that President Trump revealed very sensitive intelligence during his meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.  They also get a kick out of a lawsuit against the Democratic National Committee, alleging staffers weren’t paid the current minimum wage for their work in 2016.  And they have some fun with the news that a published photo of President Trump’s bodyguard revealed the personal cell phone number of Defense Sec. James Mattis.
