We love our listeners and we love hearing from you! So we decided to ask what questions you’d like us to address.  Today we start with a great hypothetical. If conservatives won control of the House, Senate, and White House (with a supermajority in the Senate), which president from the past 100 years would we want setting the agenda and what would we want him to focus on. Then they take on a question asking what margin Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis needs to win re-election by to have real momentum for a 2024 presidential bad – and how damaging would it be for him if Sen. Marco Rubio wins by a wider margin?  Finally, they tackle a Terminator-themed political question in a crazy but intriguing final martini.

Jim and Greg continue their week of special podcasts by focusing on the critical 2022 midterm elections.  They start by looking at the most competitive U.S. Senate races and come to different conclusions about which party is likely to be in control of the Senate next year. They also look at the race for the House, which is likely to swing back to GOP control, but is it a lock and how big of a GOP majority is reasonable to expect?  Finally, they examine the highest profile governor races, which may produce presidential contenders before too long.

Join Jim & Greg as they dissect new polls showing that inflation, gas prices, and other economic issues are the top concern for for more than three of every five Americans. They also welcome news that Florida leans increasingly to the right as GOP voter registrations dwarf the numbers put up by the Democrats. And they’re a bit stunned to hear Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kinney admit that he’s looking forward to the day he’s no longer mayor.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the Supreme Court marshal urging state officials in Virginia and Maryland to protect Supreme Court justices and stop protests outside their private homes. But they do wonder why it took her almost two months to do this. They also get a kick out of California Gov. Gavin Newsom trying to claim there is more freedom in California than in Florida in his laughable attempt to troll Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. And they fume as yet another mass shooter littered the internet with his fascination with other mass killings.

Join Jim and Greg as they breathe another sigh of relief that Ron DeSantis is governor of Florida after yet another scandal for Democrat Andrew Gillum, who came within a whisker of winning in 2018. They also shake their heads as Ohio Democrat Tim Ryan is trying to play the “I’m not like those other Democrats” card as he tries to win a U.S. Senate seat – and Arizona Sen. Mark Kelly is trying the same lame strategy. But there’s just one problem!  And  they sigh as Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen seems to be trying to redefine a recession.

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.

With thanks to Jonathan Swift, Anglo-Irish cleric-satirist, for the title of this piece, I would like to make a “modest proposal” for the Republicans for 2024: a Trump/DeSantis ticket. Our current government is a disaster. The heavily-Democratic Deep State and corruption at DOJ and all major government agencies will take decades to fix.  Preview Open

Join Jim and Greg as they cheer a poll showing a majority of Democrats supporting the Florida legislation keeping controversial sexual topics away from kids in kindergarten through third grade and Gov. Ron DeSantis sporting a healthy lead over the Dems running against him. They also sigh as President Biden says sanctions were never going to deter Russia despite top administration officials saying exactly the opposite for weeks. And Jim dissects China’s new COVID problem as cases are on the rise there.

 

Join Jim and Greg as they assess the newest poll on the Florida governor’s race that shows Ron DeSantis with a solid lead. They also cheer as D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser drops the vaccine and mask mandates amid economic pressure and low COVID numbers. And Biden Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm refuses to answer questions about her stock holdings because, “The planet is warming faster than ever”.

Join Jim and Greg cheer Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for giving parents the power to decide whether their kids will wear masks to school in the coming weeks and shudder as Washington, D.C, allows kids as young as 11 years old to make a decision on getting the vaccine without telling their parents. They also fire back as CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky admits there is discussion in the Biden administration about issuing a federal mandate to vaccine all Americans. And they chronicle the obvious mask mandate hypocrisy of D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser.

Join Jim and Greg as they applaud Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for his vigorous defense of his successful strategy to mitigate coronavirus in his state and for calling out the media narrative that insisted his approach would be a disaster. They also note that two Democratic cities in Virginia just handed the majorities on their city councils to Republicans as a backlash to the recent gun control push in the commonwealth. And they groan heavily as Sen. Kamala Harris is introducing legislation to condemn using terms like “Chinese virus” or “Wuhan Flu” as racist.

Two good martinis and one very bad one as we head into Mother’s Day weekend. Join Jim and Greg as they marvel at how well Florida has done thus far in warding off  virus that’s particularly rough on the elderly. They also shudder deeply as the U.S. lost a stunning 20.5 million jobs in April and the unemployment rate soared to 14.7 percent. And they welcome news that the percentage of positive COVID tests is declining at testing ramps up.

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 […]

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud new Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for suspending Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel and naming two stellar judges to the Florida Supreme Court.  They also discuss Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard joining the 2020 presidential race and how her defense of Syria’s Bashar al-Assad could impact the campaign.  And as many breathlessly await the Mueller report on Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign, ABC’s Jonathan Karl reports that the report will likely be anti-climactic.
