Tag: Kamala Harris

Donald Trump, whether people want to admit it or not, scored a pretty big foreign policy win as Israel normalized relations with UAE and Bahrain. Seth, Park, Jay, and Grant discuss the political implications for Trump and why people are so afraid (on either side) to credit anyone, not in their party for policy success.

Also, the guys discuss the coronavirus vaccine and the effects of both Trump over-promising and some Democrats flirting with anti-vax rhetoric because they don’t like Trump and argue the wrong point (that it won’t be ready by election day instead of assuming it will and saying they don’t trust the president).

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. The Harris-Biden Administration

 

Political commentator Michael Kinsley defined a gaffe as “when a politician tells the truth – some obvious truth he isn’t supposed to say.” Democratic Vice Presidential nominee Kamala Harris made a curious one Monday, mentioning “A Harris Administration … together with Joe Biden.”

Perhaps this was just a misstatement. It could be another example of Harris’s legendary ambition and preening self-regard. But it appears she was reading from a teleprompter. Is the Veep nominee telegraphing what seems obvious to most Americans, left and right — that Joe Biden will be unable to fulfill his presidential duties for long, if at all?

Join Jim and Greg as they cheer what appears to be a major antibody discovery from the University of Pittsburgh that could be a huge asset in the fight against COVID. They also spotlight the “party of science” figures like Kamala Harris and North Carolina U.S. Senate hopeful Cal Cunningham saying they would not trust a COVID vaccine announced prior to the election. And they have fun with Kamala promising what would happen in a “Harris administration” before suddenly remembering she’s not actually the nominee.

The United States of America is increasingly under assault from an anti-American mob that has gained mainstream prominence across the country. This mob has ravaged major US cities for weeks on end, torn down historical monuments, and murdered innocent citizens.

At a recent Oakland “Black Lives Matter” event, “protestors” chanted “death to America” — an anti-American death threat used by Iranian government officials. These same “protestors” hurled projectiles at police officers, set trucks on fire, and vandalized buildings.

Join Jim and Greg as they serve up three martinis, including one bad one they think could end up being good. They discuss unions planning walkouts from teachers, truckers, government employees and others to demand things like Medicare for all, free rent, and defunding the police – but see tremendous potential for this tactic to backfire spectacularly. They also unload on Kamala Harris for reversing her position on fracking and noting her blatant pandering to Pennsylvania voters in the process. And they vent in reaction to a California wildfire starting from a pyrotechnic explosion at a gender-reveal party.

This is what a losing campaign looks like. The Democrat party, who never took a full accounting of their 2016 disastrous election, who have been mollycoddled by echo chamber blue check marked journactivists™, who spent the last four years digging for phantom truffles Adam Schiff swore he saw in fake Russian dirt, who enabled rioters, arsonists and violent looters to burn down our businesses and cities while diminishing our heroes — have awoken the usually disinterested moderate middle.

If the current trajectory continues, November 3 may be the Democrats’ day of infamy. What only a couple of months ago would have been unthinkable may actually be happening; the Left is taking the path to ruin.

Ep. 254 – Senator Marsha Blackburn, fresh from the #RNC2020, discusses Media Lies and will there be Durham Bombshells as a certain Democrat Senator is now proven to have leaked the FISA Application to the media (which started the whole Mueller investigation) & Senator Blackburns latest book The Mind of a Conservative Woman: Seeking the Best for Family and Country. Then @23:36 Writer, Producer and Comedian Michael Loftus from The Loftus Party discusses the Death of New York City, #RepublicansForBiden, and what would happen if Biden cancels the scheduled Debates.

This week James reports in from an undisclosed location (his evil genius lair, no doubt) and he and Toby review the week’s doings, from the latest on the Covid lockdowns to the foolishness of the multi-culti wokeness of the BBC and their plans for this year’s Proms.

We get their views on the Biden-Harris ticket (or is that Harris-Biden?) and the prospect of Donald Trump’s re-election, plus our cultural reviews, highlighted by the very disappointing Greyhound with Tom Hanks on AppleTV.

Join Jim and Greg as they’re glad to see Kellyanne and George Conway end their ugly public debates, leave their jobs, and focus on their family. They also unload on Virginia’s public health director for announcing the COVID vaccine will mandatory for residents there. And they hammer Kamala Harris for her political tap dance in trying to explain why she called for more cops a decade ago but now promises to carry the banner for Black Lives Matter.

Erick Erickson, Editor at http://TheResurgent.com and Host at WSB Radio, joins Dave to discuss the Democratic National Convention, Kamala Harris, Bill Clinton, what happened to his buddy Joe Scarborough, the upcoming debates, Never Trump and the Lincoln Project, Laura Loomer and Steve Bannon. Find Erick on Twitter at http://twitter.com/EWErickson.

Slim topic on this podcast. Seth, Park, Grant, and Jay mostly discuss the speeches given by Kamala Harris and Joe Biden as well as what their campaign will look like coming out of the convention and if Biden will maintain his center-left posture or fall to the very online mindset.

The guys also offer up a preview of what they think Trump will talk about in his speech next week.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the news that Biden’s selection of Kamala Harris is having very little impact on the presidential race. They also roll their eyes as Hillary Clinton suggests to the convention yet again that she really won the election and Barack Obama, of all people, says we need a president who will faithfully defend the Constitution. And they react to the news that former White House official and Trump 2016 campaign honcho Steve Bannon is under indictment for allegedly defrauding a charity supposedly funding a border wall.

Biden had Senator Dodd screening potential VP candidates. I recently heard on a podcast that he asked Senator Harris about her attacks on Biden. She replied that it was only politics. He was taken aback at the nakedness of her cynicism. I don’t like Colbert, but this short clip shows her inner emptiness. How any person who claims to be a Republican can support this team escapes me.

Ep. 252 – EVAN SAYET, Comedian, Author & Speaker discusses THE WOKE SUPREMACY, his latest book on cancel culture, the death of comedy, today’s Left, the deep state and are we in a Civil War? Then @35:08 JOE COLLINS For Congress, Candidate for CA-43 who’s running against Maxine Waters. Joe discusses being a Black Conservative, Diversity of Thought, Kamala Harris, and Ballot Harvesting in California. Find Evan and his books at http://EvanSayet.com and support Joe at http://JoeCollinsforCongress.com.

Fox News Commentator (and Ricochet alum) Mollie Hemingway took a break from the hectic pace of events to sit down with our own Dave Carter for a fairly comprehensive survey of the political and cultural landscape today. The conversation ranges from Joe Biden’s selection of Senator Kamala Harris for his Vice Presidential candidate, to the media’s mischaracterization of the riots and carnage in major cities across the country. Along the way, Mollie and Dave discuss the general reluctance of politicians and commentators to honestly address the “root causes” of much of the crime, death, and destruction that afflicts inner city life across the nation (their conclusions may surprise you). Dave laments the media’s apparent role as the public relations arm of the DNC, at which point Mollie takes a different view. How different? You’ll have to listen in for that one.

Then Dave talks with Ricochet Charter Member Duane Oyen, who has been with us since before this site launched. Duane has some thoughts on the state of politics today, the Never Trump phenomenon, and various distinctions and divisions on the Right. “But when Duane weighs in on the things that unite us all,” writes Dave, “he sounds as wise as Solomon.” If you like discussions of policy, political philosophy, and a dose of history, this is the podcast for you. you.

Join Jim and Greg as they wince at the prospect of Sen. Kamala Harris being one of Joe Biden’s heart beats away from the presidency if the Democratic ticket wins in November. They also applaud Sarah Palin for her magnanimous advice to Harris based on her experience as John McCain’s running mate in 2008. And they hammer the “true conservatives” at the Lincoln Project for lavishing praise on Harris and laugh as Bill Kristol suggests only Harris and Pence should debate.

Joe Biden made his choice for a running mate and it’s Kamala Harris. There wasn’t much surprise behind the pick as Biden said he’d choose a woman and after the George Floyd protests, Biden had pressure to choose a woman of color. Seth, Jay, Park, and Grant discuss the following:

  • What does it do for Biden’s campaign?
  • How will Trump go after them and since he can’t control his worst impulses, will it screw things up?
  • How will Biden and Harris deflect away from the move the Democratic Party made to the left in the last 5-6 years?
  • What will the focus of the Democratic national convention be?

Finally, the guys offer up their picks of the week from the latest issue of the magazine!
