You know things are bad when you look back fondly on the Obama years as the good old days. Sure, it was on his watch that race relations did a one-eighty, the White House glowed in the rainbow colors and most of us were depicted as bitter clingers. But still, nobody back then would have […]

Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. We Are in Freefall

 

In a world gone mad, Marxist zombies riot, burn, loot and murder in every major city in America (and many European capitals) over the death of the hero/criminal George Floyd. Corporate America, Hollywood celebrities, etc., fall all over themselves to confess their white guilt. Statues and monuments are torn down and it no longer matters if what they represented was good or not because it’s total nihilism. And the people who are charged with the authority to maintain order and protect us stand by and do nothing.

Under these circumstances, it’s not hyperbole to say that our country is in moral and intellectual freefall.

George Floyd, George Floyd, George Floyd, George Floyd, George Floyd, George Floyd, George Floyd, George Floyd! The name seems to be reverberating all over the planet as leftists everywhere engage in one gigantic, unified primal scream over the incalculable loss to humanity. Is there anything else on earth that matters (now that we’ve forgotten Covid)? […]

I don’t know why the BBC hosts such pieces without seeming to ever host a response to them, but here it goes (again) with an opinion piece posted as historic analysis (along with others about American police brutality this week). It rehashes every stage of historic racial grievances with little recognition that anything has changed […]

Join Jim and Greg as they marvel at the SpaceX launch, celebrate the plummeting COVID-19 numbers in Italy, and unload on destructive rioters and feeble “leaders” as dozens of American cities descend into chaos.

Four bad martinis to close out the week, all related to the unrest in Minnesota last night. First, Jim and Greg slam local officials for simply abandoning the neighborhood near the third police precinct to widespread arson and rioting while shaking their heads as MSNBC’s Ali Velshi claims most people are not “unruly” while a giant fire rages behind him. They cringe as Hennepin County Prosecutor Mike Freeman told reporters Thursday there was evidence suggesting there was no criminal conduct committed against George Floyd and as President Trump and Twitter go to war over social media in the midst of all this. And they’re dumbfounded as the Minnesota State Patrol arrests a CNN crew that was being cooperative and clearly stating they were media. Finally, they learn as they record that Officer Chauvin will be arrested for the murder of Floyd.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the nearly unanimous public condemnation of the treatment of George Floyd and that there must be justice in the case. They also note that some will try to use the looting and arson from Wednesday night to drives wedges in that united front. They also unload on New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo for having the gall to suggest that nursing homes are to blame for accepting COVID-positive patients when New York forbid nursing homes from rejecting such patients or even testing incoming patients for COVID-19. And as CBS is forced to make layoffs in the news division, they’re stunned to see news reports that the list reportedly includes respected White House reporter Mark Knoller.
