Join Jim and Greg as they cheer the news that a key terrorist suspect in the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Scotland. They also wonder why Trump HHS Secretary Tom Price was forced to resign for taking private jets at taxpayer expense but Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg can do it and almost no one cares.  Finally, they sigh as the New York Times fawns over Pennsylvania Senator-Elect John Fetterman for his fashion statement of hooded sweatshirts and cargo shorts.

Jim and Greg will be back with brand new podcasts on Thursday and Friday. As they both go on vacation today, let’s look back at their analysis of the midterm elections from two weeks ago. At the time they noted some of the big races that slipped away from the GOP, cheered the big wins in places like Florida and Texas, and discussed what lessons can be learned in the immediate aftermath of the voting.

Jim and Greg shake off the surprise of of an underwhelming midterm election for Republicans to dissect why Democrats were able to win so many races that the GOP seemed to have a good shot at. They chronicle the key races that got away, cheer the big wins in places like Florida and Texas, and note that the Republicans still have a good chance at winning the House and have a path left to claiming the majority in the Senate. And they try to determine what the GOP need to do differently or better in future election cycles.

Join Jim and Greg as they offer their final predictions for control of the House and Senate and the winners of tight races for Senate and governor. Will there really be a big red wave across the country, or will Democrats be able to win some of those tight Senate races? We’ll tell you what we hope will happen and what we think will happen. But the most important thing is for you to make sure you vote!

 

Join Jim and Greg as they process polling numbers in the Arizona governor’s race and wonder whether Democrats made bad decisions about debating in two key states. They’re also horrified as the Air Force admits its personnel records about a Republican congressional candidate and her sexual assault in Iraq were leaked to a Democratic opposition research firm and got published in Politico. And Jim has zero confidence that anyone will face consequences for such a heinous act. Finally, after years of insisting President Trump and Republicans are an existential threat to democracy, a Dem-connect PAC is spending tons of money on ads saying the GOP candidates are not loyal enough to Trump and that his voters should support Libertarian candidates.

Join Jim and Greg as they discuss John Fetterman’s painful performance in the Pennsylvania U.S. Senate debate and how Fetterman’s wife and state Democrats failed to protect a man who clearly needs much more time to recover. They also cheer Lee Zeldin for eviscerating New York Gov. Kathy Hochul on crime, the economy, freedom, and the nursing home scandal which still demands accountability. Finally, they applaud the New York Supreme Court for striking down New York City’s policy of firing city employees who did not get a COVID shot and ordering those employees reinstated and given back pay.

Poli-Prompts, Inc.

 

I got a call from my longtime friend and personal attorney, E. Hobart Calhoun, majority shareholder of Poli-Prompts, Inc., a NASDAQ-traded company providing teleprompter technology to politicians.

He asked me to help him work a high-profile sales and demo meeting with two potential clients, both public service heavyweights.

Join Jim and Greg as they eagerly welcome news that national Democrats are “retrenching” their financial strategy for keeping the House of Representatives, which is the fancy way of saying they are pulling money from races they no longer think they can win. On top of that, a major pollster says there is no doubt that Republican candidates are looking stronger and stronger over the past few weeks. They also discuss the bizarre decision by Arizona Democrat Katie Hobbs to refuse any debates with Republican Kari Lake, even as more polls show Lake winning. Finally, they defend NBC reporter Dasha Burns as Democrats and their media allies savage her for sharing her honest observations of how poorly Pennsylvania Senate candidate John Fetterman holds up in casual conversation. They also blast the Fetterman campaign for keeping his health records under lock and key and blasting any honest assessment of his health as “ableism.”

Join Jim and Greg as they wince over the larger-than-expected jump in the Producer Price Index in September and brace for the consumer inflation numbers tomorrow. They also discuss Jim’s in-depth reporting on Pennsylvania Senate candidate John Fetterman and the media that have coddled him for many years. And they shake their heads as the Quinnipiac Poll, which was spectacularly wrong at times in 2020, shows not only Sen. Warnock growing his lead over Herschel Walker but Brian Kemp and Stacey Abrams in an alleged dead heat in the governor’s race.

Jim is back! Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the Axios assessment that Republicans seem to have momentum in the battle for the U.S. Senate thanks to shifts in a couple key races. They’re also concerned as the U.S. Army reports it fell 15,000 soldiers short of it’s recruiting goal in Fiscal Year 2022. That’s 25 percent below the target and the other branches posted disappointing numbers too. And they shudder as more and more signs point to gas prices rising again soon, including OPEC threatening significant production cuts.

Jim and Greg also reflect back to the D.C. snipers, whose killing spree began 20 years ago today and claimed the lives of 10 innocent people in the area.

Riochet.com Editor-in-Chief Jon Gabriel is in for Jim today. Join Jon and Greg as they are pleased to see Dr. Oz and the GOP exposing John Fetterman’s radical record of coddling violent criminals. They also shudder as the government confirms a recession as the negative economic growth in the second quarter of this year becomes official, and they nod glumly as former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers ties the inflation mess back to a spending binge that started 18 months ago. And they sigh as White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre says it is not at all odd that President Biden would ask if a deceased congresswoman was in the audience because she was “top of mind.”

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome better polling news for the likes of Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson and and GOP hopefuls in the critical states of Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, and even Pennsylvania. They also notice the odd trend of Democrats like New York Gov. Kathy Hochul and Washington Sen. Patty Murray refusing to debate their Republican opponents. And they may have sprained their eyeballs as the very rich Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard presents himself as a socialist who regrets becoming so wealthy and is now dedicated to saving the planet.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the news that Democrat John Fetterman will take part in a U.S. Senate debate after the media started questioning his fitness as a candidate and a possible senator. But will the late date of the debate help to protect Fetterman from a rough performance?  They also hammer President Biden over his false promise to do everything possible to bring down gas prices, after the Wall Street Journal reports this administration approved the fewest acres for drilling in almost 80 years and 97 percent less land than almost every president since the end of World War II. And they discuss the disturbingly hateful reactions to Queen Elizabeth II’s death, including a Carnegie Mellon professor who wished her “excruciating pain.”

Join Jim and Greg as they cheer a very strong ad from Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis that uses Floridians from all walks of life mentioning how his policies have made their lives better. They also are intrigued to see the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette call our John Fetterman for being unable to take part in debates and the New York Times start to lay expectations for the defeat of Stacey Abrams in Georgia. Finally, they shake their heads at the left looking to California as the leaders in progressive energy policy…only to see California suffering rolling blackouts and and energy restrictions as a heat wave rolls in.

Join Jim and Greg as they find a glimmer of hope in Sen. Sinema’s silence thus far on the Manchin-Schumer bill. They also wince as another reports high inflation is here for at least several more months. And they shake their heads as Dr. Oz is polling at just 36 percent in Pennsylvania and is badly trailing an opponent who hasn’t campaigned in more than two months.

 

Emily Jashinsky of The Federalist is in for Jim Geraghty. Join Emily and Greg as they recoil at the radical pro-abortion group Jane’s Revenge taking responsibility for many violent attacks on pregnancy centers in recent weeks and vowing to be even more aggressive. They also sigh as new polls show Dr. Oz deeply unpopular among Pennsylvania voters – just as some of us warned. And they hammer the Biden administration’s latest lame narrative for high gas prices – the oil companies just aren’t patriotic enough to lower prices.

 

Join Jim and Greg as they’re glad to see Americans overwhelmingly worried about inflation and gas prices and planning to vote based on those issues. They also react to Rachel Wolfe’s nightmare journey from New Orleans to Chicago and back in an electric vehicle and what it tells us about how Dems are trying to reorganize our lives. And they discuss the Pennsylvania Senate race, as Dr. Oz officially wins the primary and John Fetterman gets caught downplaying the seriousness of his heart condition.

 

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome 2022 midterm assessments from two Democrats that this year is going to be very rough for their party. They also groan as Homeland Security keeps its “Disinformation Governance Board” and taps former Bush Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff as a key adviser. And they preview today’s key primaries before diving into the sheer chaos of the Pennsylvania race, where we still don’t have a GOP primary winner but we do have lawsuits. Meanwhile, medical experts are warning that the Democrat in the race had a more severe stroke than we were told in recent days and is “at risk for sudden cardiac death.”

Join Jim and Greg as they serve up three good martinis! First, they cheer the apparent demise of the Department of Homeland Security’s Disinformation Governance Board. They also react to the razor-close GOP Senate primary in Pennsylvania and the congressional primary defeat of Rep. Madison Cawthorn. Finally, they’re encouraged by Republican primary voters turning out in much bigger numbers than Democrats.

 

Join Jim and Greg as they breathe a tad easier after Vladimir Putin does not announce any escalation of the Ukraine war in his Victory Day speech. They also fume as the Biden administration still can’t find the courage to tell protesters to stay away from the homes of Supreme Court justices. And recently uncovered voting records add to their unease about the idea of Sen. Mehmet Oz in Pennsylvania.
