Join Jim & Greg as they discuss the unanimous Supreme Court ruling that illegal immigrants can’t obtain green cards. They also marvel at the Guatemalan president blaming the Biden administration for the border crisis and give credit to Vice President Kamala Harris for finally telling Central Americans not to come to our border. But when will she go to the border herself? Finally, they clink glasses to a new poll showing New York City voters want more police on the streets.

 

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.

In this entry from the Martini Shot archives (OK, it’s actually a thumb drive), Rob offers some advice for the newly inaugurated President Biden based on his years (and more years) of show biz experience.

The fifty United States of America are not “united” on the basis of unconditional fealty to even a wholly legitimate federal government, to say nothing of a one third illegitimate one. The Constitution and its Amendments were written and ratified to protect the states and, ultimately, we, the citizens, from governmental violation of our inalienable […]

How to Fix Our Elections the Right Way

 

The Democrats’ “For The People Act” ain’t it. Increasing numbers of people are waking up to realize that HR 1, passed narrowly by the US House of Representatives late Wednesday, may qualify as the worst legislation ever adopted by one of our congressional chambers. That’s no exaggeration. Having said that, House Democrats passed a similar bill in the past (2019), but with Donald Trump in the White House and Republicans in control of the Senate, it didn’t matter.

It does now. If Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kristin Sinema (D-AZ), both Democrats who claim to oppose ending the filibuster cave on the matter, with this bill as its vehicle, it could become law. Fingers crossed. It may be a close call. Pressure will no doubt be applied.

I won’t go into the bill’s voluminous flaws here. That’s been done extensively and in great detail by several excellent organizations and journalists, including the Public Interest Legal Foundation, the Institute for Free Speech, the Heritage Foundation, and others. A quick, top-line summary can be found here, courtesy of the Washington Examiner.

Is any of this real?  The things that have happened in the last week, two weeks, two months, the last year, the last four years?  Have these things really happened in America?  I find myself in a weird hybrid state of bafflement and rage, tiptoeing, shell-shocked, through the moral, political and spiritual wreckage of a […]

Join Jim and Greg as they offer the second installment of their prestigious year-end awards. Today they remark on the people they’re most sorry to see pass away in 2020. They also share their choices for rising political stars and the political figures who appear to be fading into oblivion – rarely to be heard from again.

Join Jim and Greg as they discuss Attorney General Bill Barr stating there is not enough evidence of fraud to overturn the presidential election and the very different opinion many Trump supporters now have of Barr. They also cringe as Minneapolis reports a 537 percent rise in carjackings compared to this time last year following this year’s riots and anti-police attitudes from local politicians. And they get a kick out of Barack Obama telling progressives that “catchy slogans” are not the path to political progress.

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 welcome growing evidence that coronavirus transmission rates are very low in the schools. Jim explains why the Trump campaign’s accusations of massive election fraud don’t seem to hold water. And they shake their heads as Barack Obama reveals why his Middle East peace efforts went nowhere.

Join Host Joe Selvaggi and Harvard Professor Chase Harrison as they discuss polling methodology and what errors in 2020 reveal about voting during COVID-19 and changing attitudes toward pollsters.

Guest:
Chase Harrison is Associate Director of the Harvard Program on Survey Research and Preceptor in Survey Methods in the Department of Government. Chase served as Director of Research Computing Services and Principal Survey Methodologist at the Harvard Business School, where he was responsible for developing and maintaining core resources in the social sciences.
