Fourteen days after the riots at the U.S. Capitol, Joe Biden took the oath of office on the same grounds that became a scene of mayhem and violence, including the deaths of five people.

Jay and Seth discuss the inauguration, what it means in U.S. political culture and the work that will come next for Biden and members of Congress. They also discuss the press’s role and how they have a reputation to live up to despite the friendlier confines of a Democratic administration.

Silicon Valley vs. Free Speech

 

Suddenly, free speech is in serious trouble.

Six years ago, CEO Jack Dorsey could proclaim “Twitter stands for freedom of expression. We stand for speaking truth to power.“ Last week, Dorsey and other big tech titans unleashed a massive speech suppression initiative, based on the notion that not only President Trump, but also anyone who supported him, including conservatives and Republicans en masse, must be silenced in the interest of public safety.

The silencing was comprehensive and ruthless. Recently increased censorship in social media had all been directed to the right. Then Facebook and Twitter joined in a permanent ban of the president. It was necessary to silence the President of the United States, according to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, because his claims of voter fraud were false and it would be dangerous to allow him to keep making them.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the CDC loosening rules on who can get the coronavirus vaccines. They also wade into the big tech crackdown on President Trump, Parler, and others, and discuss what free speech is and is not. And they roll their eyes as the media are now on day three of Kamala Harris being upset with the photo used of her on the cover of Vogue.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the good news that the Pfizer vaccine successfully fights off the recently discovered coronavirus mutations. They also mourn the death of a U.S. Capitol Police officer and discuss the scrutiny the USCP will undergo after Wednesday’s riots and the chief’s resignation. Finally, they slam Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for immediately framing the police response as evidence of a race-based two-tiered justice system.

Join Jim and Greg as they discuss eye-opening numbers of Americans fleeing deep blue states and heading for places with more freedom. They also unload on New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo for threatening major fines for not giving out vaccines soon enough and vowing even bigger penalties for giving vaccines to groups who shouldn’t be getting them yet. And they roll their eyes at yet another Kamala Harris story about herself that seems impossible to believe.

As states begin to certify the 2020 election results, and the court litigation disputing the election outcome slowly ends, Americans ought to focus their attention on the two U.S. Senate races down in Georgia. Republican Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler are running close races against their Democratic opponents—and the results of these elections will […]

I can’t stand the “Congratulations to Kamala for being the first ____ Vice President” posts filling up my feeds. A. I don’t think you could create a politician in a lab that I would despise more. She’s a dishonest tyrannical demagogue who should be politically unpalatable in our Republic and as far away from power […]

Ep. 261 – @10:29 Judge Jeanine Pirro on Spygate, Biden’s Russia Problem and the Vote-By-Mail. At @23:22 Jonathan Williams, Chief Economist and Executive Vice President at http://ALEC.org on the best and worst states economically.

First, Dave’s recap on the VP Debate and Biden’s ‘Kamala Problem’.

Turns Out Harris Didn’t ‘Nail Pence to a Wall…Leaving a Trail of Blood Behind Her’

 

If Democrats were expecting Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) to deliver a reprise of her unforgettable takedown of former Vice President Joe Biden over his past support of racial segregation in an early Democratic presidential primary debate, they were surely disappointed.

Prior to Wednesday night’s vice-presidential debate, one of Harris’ advisers told Politico: “This could be a mic drop moment for her … She just has to go out, nail Pence to a wall, and walk off leaving a trail of blood behind her.”

Join Jim and Greg as they cheer Mike Pence for a solid debate and putting Kamala Harris on defense over court packing, the economy, the Green New Deal, fracking and more. They also discuss how Harris once again showed she is overrated as a debater and how the media tried to change the discussion after the debate to how Harris was somehow at a disadvantage because she’s a woman. And they serve up a double shot of crazy as the Commission on Presidential Debates announces next week’s debate will be virtual and President Trump immediately rejects the idea.

VP Pence Calmly Dismantles Kamala Harris

 

Vice President Mike Pence dominated Sen. Kamala Harris in the first and only veep debate Wednesday night. And he did so quietly, calmly, and methodically.

As expected, this was more subdued than the first presidential debate. USA Today’s Susan Page moderated the University of Utah event in Salt Lake City. Nearly all of Page’s questions came from the left but she didn’t rush to make herself the story, a la Chris Wallace.

The Vice President remained zenlike for 90 minutes straight, complimenting Harris while politely sliding in a shiv. He congratulated Harris for her “historic nomination” then asked why she voted for the Green New Deal. He highlighted her prosecutorial record but was curious why she indicted so many more blacks than whites.

Join Jim and Greg as they mix serious and lighthearted analysis of Tuesday’s first presidential debate. They also hammer election officials around the country for consistently making easily avoidable mistakes with absentee ballots that will only fuel mistrust in the process. And they slam Kamala Harris for dodging whether she and Biden would embrace court packing, and her response is even more pathetic than Biden’s.

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).

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?

As I noted yesterday, Joe better hire a food taster.

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 Anti-American Violence Plaguing the US and How to Solve It

 

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.

The Left’s Path to Ruin

 

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.

Much of November and December will then be filled with post-mortems of Election 2020 (assuming we are not awaiting corrupt mail-in ballots). If the Oberlin graduates who will pen these hindsight pieces wish to actually write something relevant beyond the redundant “deplorables, racists, and misogynists, oh my!”, they may want to understand why (if the election were to be held today) the Orange Man bad fad will continue another four glorious years.
