Deliberately Losing Georgia?

 

Democrats barely won Georgia in 2020.  In sane times, a party that barely wins a state for the first time would do everything it can to shore up (fortify?) its margin of victory, hoping for bigger future wins.

Democrats are doing the exact opposite.   They are doing everything they can to alienate the state by preventing members of their most loyal constituency from making money off the All Star game.

I guess that kind of craziness isn’t surprising in an era where mayors let their own cities burn, thinking it will enhance their resumes.  Or a time when large companies openly alienate half of their customers.  The Democrats’ attitude toward Georgia would seem to fit with the other craziness.

Join Jim and Greg as they applaud Arizona Democrat Kyrsten Sinema for thus far refusing to kill or even “reform” the Senate filibuster – despite immense pressure from the left. They also shake their heads as New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand tries to argue that paid leave, child care, and caregiving fall under infrastructure. And the California recall spectacle may already be underway as the first celebrity hints at running for governor.

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.

Join Jim and Greg as they cheer the special congressional election win for Julia Letlow in Louisiana, as this impressive woman wins the seat her late husband won last year. They also cringe as Democrats plan to pass every agenda item possible through reconciliation, which would also render the Senate filibuster irrelevant. And Jim unloads on federal and state officials as barely half of the Johnson & Johnson vaccines have been administered three weeks after FDA approval.

Join Jim and Greg as they applaud Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for refusing to spend “one red cent” of taxpayer money on Critical Race Theory on the Florida civics curriculum. They also hammer the naked hypocrisy and opportunism of Senate Democrats who constantly tried to filibuster the Trump agenda but now insist it’s an ugly impediment to democracy and equality. And they shred New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio for wanting police to confront people who have committed no crimes but may have hurt someone else’s feelings.

Join Jim and Greg as they cheer new polling showing that Cuban voters have swung dramatically back towards the Republican Party and strongly against the Obama-Biden approach to Cuba. Their jaws are also on the floor as New York voters want Gov. Andrew Cuomo to stay in office by a fairly wide margin and continue to think he’s done a great job handling the pandemic –  except for the thousands of nursing home deaths.  And Jim unloads on the notion of European sophistication as 15 countries suspend use of the AstraZeneca vaccine.

It’s my contention that the presidential election on Nov 3 was clearly and without a doubt stolen by the Democratic Party and it’s allies including social media like Facebook, the voting machine companies and even allies in the US government like the FBI. The Democrats are trying to cement their thievery for future elections in […]

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the news that the Pfizer vaccine is very effective against the Brazil, UK, and South Africa variants. They also shred the Democrats’ election reform legislation as a federal power grab that weakens the power of states, eliminates key protections, and stifles political speech – and the “principled conservatives” who actually support it. And while the vaccines appear to be working well, they push back hard against the notion of needing a “vaccine passport” to re-enter normal life.

Join Jim and Greg as they chronicle the second accusation of sexual harassment against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and his ever-changing response to it. They also get a kick out of the possibility that Florida Democrats might dust off Charlie Crist to challenge Gov. Ron DeSantis in 2022. And they fire back at an NBC “explainer” on hate crimes, which suggests reporters need to be very careful about labeling something a hate crime if the offender is not white.

Raising the minimum wage is not about raising income for individuals and families, it’s about raising campaign funds for Democrat politicians. With the raise, almost all unions, public and private, will receive equivalent raises — some by contractual agreement. With that, unions can kick-back more campaign donations to politicians, almost exclusively in the Democrat party. […]

Chad Benson is in for Jim today. Chad and Greg examine new research from the Federal Reserve showing the Biden racial equity agenda would actually make the wealth divide much greater. They also react to a pair of House Dems trying to get cable TV providers to cut ties with Fox News, OANN, and Newsmax. And they shake their heads as Merrick Garland draws a peculiar line between what is domestic terrorism and what is not.

Join Jim and Greg for a busy Presidents’ Day edition! First, they welcome Democrats in New York calling for Gov. Andrew Cuomo to lose his emergency powers in response to the nursing home death scandal. But will the consequences get any more severe? They also shake their heads as the Biden administration offers dozens of new vaccine sites, but they’re missing one important thing? And they unload on CDC Director Rochelle Walensky and Dr. Anthony Fauci for drastically watering down their calls for schools to reopen – an obvious sign that politics is trumping science in the Biden administration.

The news might be all bad today but we’re still having fun! Join Jim and Greg as they discuss the Virginia Education Association strongly opposing Gov. Ralph Northam’s demand for in-person schooling by mid-March and none of the Democrats running for governor this year having the guts to stand up for the kids or the science against the union. They also cringe in recounting the opening arguments made by the Trump legal team on Tuesday, but will the quality of the lawyers have any impact on the outcome? And they unload on Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, who won’t criticize China but is cancelling the national anthem at home games this season.

Democrats’ Hypocritical Leadership

 

[….] House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) praised the occupiers for an “impressive show of democracy in action” and tweeted as they assaulted the Capitol that she continued “to stand in solidarity” with the union activists. In other words, Democrats were for occupying capitols before they were against it.

So reported Marc A. Thiessen at The Washington Post, comparing Democrats’ condemnation of the US capitol riot to their praise of the Wisconsin capitol riot.

Jesse Kelly, media personality, TV and radio host extraordinaire, joins Carol Roth to talk about the state of the US and why we are witnessing parallels with the Roman Empire’s downfall. Jesse and Carol discuss what has gone wrong, the “issue” with the Constitution and how communist thinking has already taken over large parts of the country. Jesse also provides his take on what we can do to make things better, with a clarification of his Twitter “Balkanize” suggestion.

Plus, a “Now You Know” on Andrew Jackson.

Happy New Year! Join Jim and Greg as they cheer the government making the right choice to void a major penalty for distilleries that produced hand sanitizer to meet demand in the early months of the pandemic. They also discuss President Trump’s phone call with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, in which Trump said Georgia officials had not done enough to investigate voting irregularities and said he needed to find nearly 12,000 votes. And they have fun with the total lunacy of House Democrats removing gendered language and Rep. Emanuel Cleaver ending his open prayer of the new session by saying “Amen and A woman.”

Join Jim and Greg as they wonder what could possibly qualify Pete Buttigieg to be the next Secretary of Transportation. They also react to Russian President Vladimir denying his government killed a prominent critic because his people would have finished the job. And they unload on the frauds at the Lincoln Project, who finally admit they’re now an anti-Republican outfit.

Would you give up your fans and livelihood on principle? Joe Walsh, former “Tea Party” Congressman from Illinois and nationally syndicated radio host joins Carol Roth to talk about why he gave up everything to primary Trump, even when he knew he would lose. Joe and Carol discuss the future of the country under Biden and the potential to kill the two party duopoly.

You can connect with Joe on Twitter @WalshFreedom. You can also check out his book, F*ck Silence, every and his podcast of the same name here.

Due to the lockdown, the Pasadena GOP Club group was notified 24 hours before the event they would not be allowed to have a speaker. Dinner, yes, but no speaker. So instead of obeying bureaucrats’ inane rules, they moved the meeting to a private home. The turnout was spectacular. Dave discusses the state of the 2020 Election, Sidney Powell, what a Biden Administration intends to do, and answers questions from the audience.

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.
