Join Jim and Greg as they discuss eye-opening numbers of Americans fleeing deep blue states and heading for places with more freedom. They also unload on New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo for threatening major fines for not giving out vaccines soon enough and vowing even bigger penalties for giving vaccines to groups who shouldn’t be getting them yet. And they roll their eyes at yet another Kamala Harris story about herself that seems impossible to believe.

To say it’s been an eventful year in politics would be a massive understatement. So it’s time to start deciding the best and worst of 2020 and today, Jim and Greg begin handing out the their Three Martini Lunch Awards. In this first installment, they offer their individual selections for Most Overrated Political Figure, Most Underrated Political Figure, and Most Honest Political Figure.

Join Jim and Greg as they discuss Senate Democrats unloading on Minority Leader Chuck Schumer over Democrats failing to win several highly targeted seats this year. Is his job safe? They also unload on Joe Biden’s plan to tax gun owners $34 billion and ban some of the most popular rifles and magazines on the market. And they dissect New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo melting down over COVID, schools, and law enforcement officers refusing to endorse his absurd policy on Thanksgiving gatherings.

Join Jim and Greg as they cheer four sheriffs in New York for refusing to investigate whether local residents have more than ten people in their homes for Thanksgiving. They also push back against the push by Democrats to forgive vast amounts of student loan debt and discuss the backlash that would ensue. And they discuss Jim’s new thriller “Hunting Four Horsemen” and how it ties into the threat we’ve all been dealing with this year.

Join Jim and Greg as they cheer Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine that is reportedly more than 90 percent effective with no discernible side effects. They also hammer New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo for whining about the vaccine being ready before Biden is president. And they react to out-of-touch liberal Chuck Schumer claiming that if Democrats win a Senate majority because of the races in Georgia, then they will change America and the world.

Join Jim and Greg as they they cheer massive economic growth in the third quarter. They also discuss the ‘anonymous’ bombshell turning into a dud and how it further erodes media credibility. And they react to Kanye West polling in third place in one battleground state.

Join Jim and Greg as they mark ten years of the 3 Martini Lunch! First they discuss two stories so bad and crazy they’re actually good. They discuss how the Democrats are planning to pack the Supreme Court and act like they had no choice because the GOP Senate filled a seat on the court just before an election. They also hammer New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo for saying the CDC and FDA cannot be trusted to tell the public if a coronavirus vaccine is safe. And they reflect back on a number of highlights from the 3 Martini Lunch over the past decade.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome NPR’s admission that it failed listeners in its favorable interview of a radical author who thinks property ownership is a form of white supremacy, although they wonder why such a person was ever invited onto NPR in the first place. They also roll their eyes as New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo warns President Trump he would need an army to return safely to New York City. And they try to figure out why Nancy Pelosi decided to launch a conspiracy theory about her flouting of the San Francisco COVID restrictions instead of just letting the story die.

Join Jim and Greg as they hammer New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo for referring to COVID as a metaphor and for continuing to portray himself as some sort of disease conqueror when his state suffered far more than any other. They also discuss John Kasich crossing over to endorse Joe Biden and why his arguments that Biden won’t cave in to the far left has already been proven false. And they have fun with Albion College’s insane rule that students have to stay in a 4.5 mile perimeter for the entire semester.

Join Jim and Greg as they relish Lincoln Project founder Rick Wilson – the “principled conservative” who wants to defeat Trump and all other Republicans – getting blasted for hypocrisy and grift by Stephen Colbert’s “Tooning Out the News.” They also welcome CNN’s Jake Tapper slamming New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo for his self-congratulatory poster and TV appearances. And they marvel at the the rise and fall of Jeff Sessions over the past four years.

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.

You may have seen the stories over the past couple of days about New York Governor Andrew Cuomo promising to send tax bills to all the temporary workers who volunteered in or were deployed to his state to help their beleaguered hospitals and medical staff with coronavirus rescue and recovery.

There’s a way to fix that, and Congress can do it as part of their phase 4 recovery bill. Here’s how.

One of the issues I worked on a few years ago was preserving Pennsylvania’s and New Jersey’s personal income tax reciprocity agreement from 1977. Then-NJ Governor Chris Christie in 2016 infamously canceled the agreement in a budget dispute with the legislature, before reversing course. He underestimated how many people it adversely affected (some 250,000 in both states) and the political reaction to his antics.

The good martini has the day off, so brace for three bad ones! Join Jim and Greg as they question New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s failure to change state policy that sends some COVID-19 patients to nursing homes after leaving the hospital. They also cringe at new Senate polls in Montana and North Carolina. And they remain concerned about our food supply chain (and have flashbacks to the 1980’s) as Wendy’s announces some of their locations cannot serve burgers right now.

Do you ever feel like you’re living in some kind of an alternate reality? How could you not? The United States of America, the most powerful and dynamic country in world history, along with most Western countries, is almost totally shut down because of . . . a virus! That’s right, the country is not […]

Today, Jim and Greg applaud the practical approach of Dr. Fauci on chloroquine. They also grumble as Nancy Pelosi and Andrew Cuomo are still not sold on the COVID-19 relief bill, and Jim unloads on Bernie for still focusing on the 2020 campaign.

 

Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Cuomo’s Abortion Law and Murder

 

A pregnant woman was killed in Queens. Witnesses heard her scream, “He’s going to kill the baby!” The attacker stabbed her repeatedly, including multiple stabs into her belly. It would seem he was indeed targeting the baby. The killer turned out to be the victim’s ex-boyfriend. He was caught and will be charged with one count of murder in the second degree.

You may ask, what exactly does this horrendous crime have to do with Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Reproductive Health Act? Prior to that law being enacted there would have been additional charges for killing the unborn child. Now, aborting a child is never a crime, even if the abortion is performed against the mother’s will. The murder of the mother is still a crime, but killing the baby is not. That means this man will only be facing one count of murder.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America see a teachable moment as New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo blames President Trump and the GOP tax reform for many wealthy people leaving his state over high taxes, but the solution would seem to be pretty simple. They’re also surprised to see 50 percent of Democratic voters in Virginia approving of Ralph Northam as governor – even after the yearbook controversy. And they react to the accuser of Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax hiring Christine Blasey Ford’s legal team.

New York City, 2032– A group of terrorists, who managed to enter the city limits possibly with the aid of underground radical sympathizers, entered the Times Square Women’s Reproductive Rights Clinic and destroyed several CUOMO™ self-service robotic pregnancy termination machines.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are pleasantly surprised to hear liberal Joy Behar admit on “The View” that the left launches online outrage mobs because they’re “desperate” to be rid of Trump. They also slam New York lawmakers for legalizing abortion up to the moment of birth and Jim unloads on New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo for lighting the Freedom Tower pink to celebrate passage of the law. And they roll their eyes as freshman Colorado Rep. Joe Neguse wants to pursue the impeachment of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
