Tag: Joe Biden

Rob Long of National Review Online is here in Jim’s absence. Join Rob and Greg as they cheer a major step in the Brexit process in the UK and apply the lessons of that odyssey to American politics this election year. They’re also a bit stunned to see Bernie Sanders not only leading in a nationwide poll but also jumping out to a double-digit lead in New Hampshire. And they have a field day with former Clinton Press Secretary Joe Lockhart tweeting out a conversation he overheard of GOP senators panicked over the impeachment case presented by Democrats, only to admit many retweets later that he just made it up.

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.

Finish the week strong with your Friday martinis! Join Jim and Greg as they discuss the roster of President Trump’s impeachment defense team, including former independent counsel Ken Starr and famed defense attorney Alan Dershowitz. They also roll their eyes as Arizona Sen. Martha McSally tries to fundraise off of calling CNN reporter Manu Raju a “liberal hack” and CNN goes into full martyr mode to pretend McSally committed some sort of grave assault on the first amendment. And they get a kick out of Politico reporting that many Democrats are just now realizing that Joe Biden is not going to implode before the caucuses and primaries begin.

Pull up a stool for another busy day on the Three Martini Lunch. Join Jim and Greg as they call out Joe Biden for falsely insisting the Obama-Biden administration never used military action apart from congressional authorization. They also hammer CNN for blatantly siding with Elizabeth Warren in her accusation that Bernie Sanders told her a woman could not get elected president – a charge Sanders strongly denies. And they unload on the radical Bernie Sanders campaign field organizer caught on tape threatening to burn down Milwaukee and other cities if Sanders does not win the Democratic nomination at the convention this summer.

What do young liberals think of the Democratic presidential candidates? How did a Cincinnati restaurant employee end up as a D.C. reporter? Does anyone trust Pete Buttigieg (who’s over 30, by the way)? Jack invites Timmy Broderick, his friend of many years and now a reporter at the Christian Science Monitor, to discuss what Timmy’s young liberal friends think of the Democratic field (aside from not trusting Buttigieg), and what drove them to leave their mutual hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio and come to Washington in the first place.

It’s finally Friday! Yes, we are fully aware of the impeachment votes in the House Judiciary Committee but Jim sums up his analysis in roughly two seconds as we begin today’s podcast. After that Jim and Greg celebrate the big win for the Conservative Party in the UK and are thrilled to report the political demise of Jeremy Corbyn. They are also hoping that the substance matches the excitement as Congress prepares to pass the U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade agreement to replace NAFTA and President Trump announces agreement on “phase one” of trade negotiations with China. And Jim details why Joe Biden’s campaign could face serious turbulence after reports that Hunter Biden had a 1988 drug arrest expunged at the same time Sen. Biden was advocating for very tough drug crime sentencing.

Another full serving of impeachment and 2020 campaign martinis Wednesday. Join Jim and Greg as they enjoy watching moderate House Democrats float a censure resolution instead of impeachment while progressive Democrats and groups blast Speaker Pelosi for only filing two articles of impeachment. They also weigh in on the disagreement between President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, as McConnell prefers an impeachment trial that wraps up as quickly as possible and President Trump wants to call lots of witnesses like Joe and Hunter Biden and the whistleblower behind the Ukraine complaint. And they dig into reports that, if elected, Joe Biden is only planning to serve one term as president.

It’s all electoral politics for your Thursday martinis! Today, Jim and Greg discuss President Trump doing much better in Wisconsin than he was just a month ago and offer ideas for why those numbers are changing. We also discuss the latest Democratic presidential debate and take a closer look at Joe Biden’s difficulty at clearly expressing himself in many responses. And we note that new 2020 Democratic hopeful Deval Patrick is off to a bit of a rough start in drawing support.

Of course a pundit is supposed to KNOW about the subject, but nonetheless I nominate Dan Rather. Not that I actually “follow” him, but a friend on Facebook linked one of his posts (he’s on Facebook) and it was about the President using his office to enrich himself, as confirmed fact with nothing behind it, […]

After a surprisingly brief venting about how bad their football teams are, Jim and Greg serve up three good martinis. They welcome New York Times polling showing Warren as the weakest major Democratic candidate against President Trump and an NYT editorial blasting Warren for falsely claiming that only billionaires would see higher taxes in her plan to pay for single-payer health care. Then they relish the exit of Beto O’Rourke from the 2020 Democratic field and also hammer the media for building up Beto as some sort of transformational figure in 2018 when he was always an empty suit. And Jim highlights his extensive profile of U.S. Attorney John Durham, the tight-lipped prosecutor tapped to investigate how the Trump-Russia investigation began in the first place.

Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. E-Mails from Kamala

 

As I’ve shared with y’all before here, the Democrats seem to think that I’m one of them, I still reside in New Mexico, and my name is Shawn. Not Kamala Harris, though! This highly astute presidential candidate knows my name and knows I live in Texas.

It started on December 11 of last year. Kamala emailed me the shocking news (“This is shocking news. . .”) about possible voting irregularities in a North Carolina US House race. She then asked me to donate to the Democrat candidate. I was about to reply that there had been similar irregularities in several House races in a state where a certain US Senator used to be Attorney General, but I held off. I saved the message to a folder called “KH.” Over the next month, I got about an email a week from Kamala telling me all about the exciting things she was doing in the Senate.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America look forward to Clint Eastwood’s new film about how the FBI and media convinced America Richard Jewell was the Olympic Park bomber back in 1996, ruined the man’s life, and obviously learned very little from this debacle. They’re hopeful the movie will tell the truth about an ugly chapter in American history. They also unload on House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, who was caught lying about his office having contact with the whistleblower before the complaint was filed. And they react to President Trump not only doubling down on his urging of Ukraine to investigates Joe and Hunter Biden but for China to start investigating them as well.

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.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America take note of how it took less than 48 hours for Democrats to turn the impeachment process into a farce as House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff opened Thursday’s hearing with a stunningly twisted version of the transcript documenting the Trump-Zelensky phone call in July. They also walk through the declassified whistleblower report and point out what is likely to matter most as this process moves along. And they get a kick out of Elizabeth Warren changing her mind on whether it’s OK for the children of vice presidents to sit on the boards of foreign companies.

To be a NeverTrumper this week, you have to hold two ideas in your head simultaneously. 1. Donald Trump colluded with Russia so he could become president and serve as Vladimir Putin’s puppet and in return Putin would let him build a skyscraper in Moscow. 2. Trump colluded with the anti-Russian president of the anti-Russian […]

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America go through the transcript of the Trump phone call with Ukrainian Pres. Volodymyr Zelensky and conclude virtually no minds will be changed by it when it comes to impeachment. They also explain why the transcript is still bad for President Trump and possibly Joe Biden. And they get a good laugh at 2016 presidential afterthought and fake conservative Evan McMullin taking credit for the launch of the House impeachment inquiry.

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.

The falsely styled “whistleblower,” a possible felon within the intelligence community who is seeking to subvert our Constitution, with the complicity of (fellow) Democrats and their Trump-loathing TruCon lapdogs, is already blowing up in “Wile E. Coyote’s” face.

President Trump had a wonderful time in his sit-down press availability with the Australian Prime Minister. He spoke plain truths: that the “fake news” media represented in the room had just had one of their worst weeks and was now doubling down to discredit themselves even further.
