Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Warren Wasn’t Sanders Lite™ – She Was Hillary

 

Barry Goldwater famously said that voters deserve a choice, not an echo. Democrats are getting a stark choice, though an unenviable one: a 78-year-old Democratic Socialist and a relatively fresh-faced 77-year-old Swamp Creature.

Having seen the writing on the wall, Bloomberg, Klobuchar, and Buttigieg dropped out of the race and endorsed Biden. But former Native American Elizabeth Warren was, characteristically, the last one in the room to get the joke. Playing to type, Warren has also refrained from endorsing either of the two remaining candidates.

We’ve sold our house in Winnetka, Illinois, a suburb 18 miles north of the Loop in Chicago. But I still get a weekly email from a bookstore there. I just got this notice. The HRC sympathy tour in 2017 was successful. The attempt to follow it up with another one the next year was not. How […]

More Democratic infighting means more popcorn on today’s Three Martini Lunch. Join Jim and Greg as they get a kick out of Tulsi Gabbard suing Hillary Clinton for defamation after Hillary indirectly accused Gabbard of being a Russian asset. They’re also very puzzled as to why Joe Biden would insist on not deporting illegal immigrants guilty of drunk driving, especially given his own family’s story. And they discuss the House impeachment managers’ odd tactic of accusing the jurors in the Senate of assisting President Trump in a cover-up if they reject any efforts by Democrats to subpoena documents or witnesses.

The Democratic ticket for the 2020 Presidential campaign will be Warren-Clinton! Warren will get the Big Chief node and Everyday-Is-Chardonnay-Tuesday Hillary will get the second, highly useless V.P. seat. Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the proverbial water, these phonies will be drenching the airwaves with hideous Girl-Power! campaign ads. […]

Hillary Clinton can make ridiculous Russia claims about Tulsi Gabbard and Jill Stein without the barest of evidence and it’ll be greeted with nodding heads from ostensibly serious journalists, not to mention the years-long investigation into the Trump-Russia theory based on nothing but unsubstantiated opposition “research.”

But overall, there’s nobody I can think of in American politics who has been a bigger asset to the Russians than Hillary Rodham Clinton herself. No, I don’t mean she colluded with Russia in any meaningful sense. But Hillary Clinton has unintentionally aided Vladimir Putin in weakening the US military’s credibility abroad while sowing discord and undermining American institutions at home.

It’s all good martinis for us today! Join Jim and Greg as they find endless entertainment in Hillary accusing Tulsi Gabbard of being a Russian asset and Gabbard going nuclear in response. They’re also glad to see President Trump listening to those begging him to take one controversy off the table and scrapping the 2020 G-7 summit at Trump’s Doral resort in Florida. And they have a lot of fun with Julian Castro becoming the latest Democrat to insist they are leaving the race unless they raise a large sum of money by the end of the month.

This explosion occurred when the forlorn and pathetic Hillary Clinton called candidate Tulsi Gabbard a Russian asset. A Uranium-rich remark. Now, there’s a lot to like about Tulsi Gabbard, even though I think she’s wrong about a number of social policy issues and if she had a different educational path might have come out more on the conservative end of the spectrum … but damn! She certainly has Hillary Clinton pegged. We’ll see if this boosts her standing in the Democrat field even as some diehard Hillary fans are affronted by the broadside. Who cares about Biden, Warren, or Bernie. This is where all the action is.

It’s a festive Friday as Jim is back to finish out the week. He and Greg wonder just how far Hillary Clinton is removed from reality as she claims voter suppression cost her key states in 2016 and that Russia will run Tulsi Gabbard as a third party candidate this year to help President Trump get re-elected. They also cringe as new polling shows incumbent Colorado GOP Sen. Cory Gardner with just 42 percent and losing to Democrat John Hickenlooper by double digits. And they close the week out by celebrating nine fun years of the Three Martini Lunch and looking forward to many more!

We’re off to an all-crazy start in what promises to be a crazy week! Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America throw up their hands as President Trump goes on a Twitter rant demanding House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff be investigated for treason and quoting allies suggesting that impeachment could lead to another civil war. They also unload on Joe Biden and his campaign for demanding that the media stop interviewing Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani. And they almost start to feel sorry for Hillary Clinton as she keeps talking about winning the popular vote and accusing Trump of being “an illegitimate president” almost three years after the election.

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. When Russia Collusion Fails, Simply Insert Ukraine

 

The Democrats and the NeverTrumpers are hoping that we’re all too stupid to notice that they’ve merely swapped out “Russia” for “Ukraine.” Once again, they’re weaponizing the Deep State against their political opponents. And once again they’re accusing President Trump of doing the exact thing they did.

In 2016 it was Hillary Clinton who colluded with foreign powers to interfere in the presidential election. The Obama administration spied on the Trump campaign, and used Russian lies, paid for by the DNC and the Clinton campaign, to try to sabotage the transition and even the administration of President Trump. Now the same people who tried to convince us that Trump had colluded with Russia are the ones salivating at the idea that Trump did something (no one knows, or cares to find out) with… Ukraine! Except that it was Joe Biden, as Vice President, who threatened to withhold $1 billion in loan guarantees unless Ukraine fired the national prosecutor who was investigating the company at which Sleepy Joe’s son, Heroin Hunter, was being paid $50,000 a month. The elder Biden bragged on video about forcing the Ukrainians to do his bidding (using your money as leverage). It’s not speculation. It happened.

Attorney General Bill Barr Photo: Screenshot from CBSNews.com

Like all of us who have followed the activities of the extraordinarily competent new Attorney General, William Barr, I have heard all manner of spin put on his statements, letters, memoranda, casual meetings in hallways with various Government officials such as Nancy Pelosi, and testimony before Congress. Somewhere in that storm cloud of words, one line in his recent interview and earlier in his testimony to Congress kept coming back to me, and so I sat down and read, closely studied in this case, the actual transcript from CBS News of his interview with that network’s Legal Analyst, Jan Crawford, to be absolutely certain I was on sound footing when I used one of the phrases I thought I had heard in that discussion. Sure enough, there it was on p. 13:

JAN CRAWFORD: What have you seen? What evidence? What makes you think, I need to take a look at this? I mean, what have you seen in the summer of 2016?

We are all familiar with the story arc of faded music stars, who end up touring much smaller venues for much smaller takes. They do so if they and the promoters have not made the dreadful mistake of miscalculating their present-day appeal based on their past glory days. If such a mistake is made, then […]

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America welcome a Politico report showing that even if liberals soaked “the rich” they wouldn’t come anywhere close to paying for single-payer health care or the Green New Deal. They also shake their heads as testimony from former FBI attorney Lisa Page suggests the FBI was considering whether to recommend a federal charge against Hillary Clinton over her mishandling of classified emails but the Justice Department made it clear it had no intention of pursuing the case. And Jim offers his hilarious assessment of climate change activists refusing to have children until the world gets serious about climate change.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are glad to see former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg decide not to run for president in 2020 but groan as he vows to spend huge sums of money to move the world “beyond carbon” in the next decade. They also fume as Hillary Clinton finds yet another pathetic excuse for losing to Donald Trump in 2016. And they react with disgust as the federal budget deficit jumps 77 percent in the first four months of Fiscal 2019 compared to last year – and because neither party and most Americans have no interest in addressing our debt and deficit crisis.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley’s decision to not run in 2020 but ask if his announcement was really necessary since very few Americans have any idea who he is. They also take a deep breath of fresh air as Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw gives a clear and calm defense of conservative principles that is often missing from our public dialogue. And Jim notes the Clinton era ends in a whimper as Hillary officially states that she will not run for president in 2020.

Kevin Williamson of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud Texas Rep.Elect Dan Crenshaw for forgiving Saturday Night Live’s mocking of his war injury and using the opportunity to explain how all of us can best honor veterans. They also shudder as more Hillary Clinton acolytes insist she is planning to run for president in 2020 and will once again try to reinvent herself. And they discuss the avalanche of Democrats planning to run for the White House in 2020, including many obscure figures who have virtually no chance of winning the nomination.

It’s a special day at the Three Martini Lunch, as Jim and Greg celebrate eight years of the podcast by remembering some of their favorite moments. But first, they get welcome the news that Hillary Clinton is back in the public eye because she may be considering another White House run in 2020, which could turn the Democratic primaries into a long, ugly brawl. They also groan as President Trump applauds Montana Rep. Greg Gianforte for body-slamming a reporter last year. And they get a kick out of Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill demanding an investigation into the undercover videos showing her and her campaign staff admitting they need to hide McCaskill’s true positions and campaign contributions from voters

More Than Simply a Legal Standard — Americans by and large are a very trusting people. In fact, most civilized societies are built on a foundation of trust. What does that mean exactly? It means that, for the most part, one presumes that your neighbor is not out to harm you. Most Americans don’t walk […]
