Join Jim and Greg as they welcome a new poll showing Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin leading Democrat Terry McAuliffe among likely voters.  They also vent as the Department of Homeland Security admits that only 16 percent of the Afghanistan evacuees brought to the U.S. were American citizens, green card holders, or Afghans with special immigrant visas.  So who are all of the others?  And they shake their heads as White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki offers up a truly lame excuse for why reporters were shouted down and kicked out of the Oval Office on Tuesday.

Join Jim and Greg as the welcome an actual good martini in addition to their evaluation of ever-worsening conditions in Afghanistan. First, they cheer the U.S. Supreme Court for ruling that the Biden administration must reinstate the “remain in Mexico” policy which requires asylum seekers to stay outside the U.S. while their claims are investigated. They also document a long list of mainstream media reports chronicling just how bad conditions are getting for people desperately trying to get to the Kabul airport and how the Biden administration’s narrative doesn’t match reality at all. And they’re getting suspicious that the Biden administration’s vow to evacuate every American who wants to get out may be setting up an ugly talking point after August 31st.

 

Join Jim and Greg as they celebrate the end of Andrew Cuomo’s governorship before digging into three sobering martinis. First, they fume as President Biden says our military presence will end on August 31. That decision means he is accepting the demands of the Taliban, even though many Americans and Afghan allies can’t get to the airport and now Afghans are barred from leaving. They also wince as a leaked State Department cable shows just 4,407 Americans have been evacuated with just a week left to get people out. And they discuss the latest “coincidence” adding even more evidence to the theory that COVID-19 started as a lab leak in Wuhan.

It’s another day with no good martinis in sight. Join Jim and Greg as they react to reports of a diplomatic cable in July that said the Afghan government was likely to fall shortly after the U.S. withdrawal. They also hammer a key Democrat in Congress for saying the military should not be helping Americans get to the Kabul airport and and the White House Communications Director for suggesting our Afghan allies only have until August 31st to get out. And they rant about the government charging Americans up to $2,000 to be evacuated.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome Dem Rep. Seth Moulton, a decorated veteran from the Iraq War, calling ‘BS’ on a key element of Biden’s speech. They also dissect National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan’s painfully bad news conference on Afghanistan. And they roll their eyes as the CDC urges Americans to get a COVID vaccine booster just days after saying it wasn’t necessary. Will people have to have this to be considered “fully vaccinated”?
