What’s the Social Credit Score in Your Wallet?

 

You are excused if you missed this story. “PayPal Partners With ADL (Anti-Defamation League) To ‘Fight Extremism And Hate’ By Researching, Disrupting Payments,” screamed the headline from Daily Caller, a conservative news site created by Fox News’ Tucker Carlson (he no longer controls it).

Perhaps you ignored it or drew a yawn from you. After all, you may have a Pay Pal account that has never had a problem and aren’t aware of ADL’s hard-left political activism. You may want to pay attention, especially if you’re a conservative who uses credit cards for certain contributions (such as the NRA) or purchases (like, purchasing a weapon for self-defense. And a lot of people are).

Jim and Greg welcome the funny but pointed denunciation of Critical Race Theory from Lousisiana GOP Sen. John Kennedy. They also wonder why the U.S. left Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan without even telling our Afghan allies. And they roll their eyes as the Lincoln Project adds longtime Dem strategist Joe Trippi, essentially admitting it’s now nothing more than another left-wing group.

Join Jim and Greg as they close out the week grateful that three terrible stories are finally coming to light. First, they discuss the Cuomo administration admitting it delayed giving New York lawmakers the real numbers of COVID-related nursing home deaths because of how Trump and his administration might respond. They also unpack the latest horrifying details of Lincoln Project officials clearly knowing about John Weaver’s predatory ways and recklessly attacking anyone who criticizes them. And they react to lefties admitting that California’s love affair with progressive policies has been a massive failure.

Join Jim and Greg for three crazy martinis! First, they aim withering verbal fire at the writer for Yahoo News and The Atlantic, who compared covering the Trump administration to storming Omaha Beach. They also discuss the major, yet unsurprising, Associated Press revelations about how much the Lincoln Project leaders were pocketing from donors and when some of their officials really learned of allegations against John Weaver. And they point out that Joe Biden has exactly the opposite statement on China that he had during the campaign – right down to the metaphor.

Join Jim and Greg as they eagerly watch Democratic allies starting to publicly rail against California Gov. Gavin Newsom, as the recall efforts get close to a key milestone. They also wince at reports that the UK variant of COVID is more virulent that the original virus and will soon slam the U.S.  And they roll their eyes as they watch the members of The Lincoln Project pretends they barely knew co-founder John Weaver after the New York Times confirms that Weaver sexually preyed on at least 21 young men, including at least one minor.

Join Jim and Greg as they serve up three crazy martinis! They slam New York City schools for scrapping the entrance exam to the kindergarten-level gifted program because the results “don’t reflect the diversity of the city’s population.” They also discuss the allegations of sexual impropriety against longtime campaign manager John Weaver that forced him to quit the Lincoln Project. And Jim shreds CNN’s Brian Stelter and Oliver Darcy for openly encouraging cable providers to dump right-leaning channels like OANN and Newsmax.

Join Jim and Greg as they wonder what could possibly qualify Pete Buttigieg to be the next Secretary of Transportation. They also react to Russian President Vladimir denying his government killed a prominent critic because his people would have finished the job. And they unload on the frauds at the Lincoln Project, who finally admit they’re now an anti-Republican outfit.

Lincoln Project faces backlash for urging people to harass members of Trump’s legal team “Here are two attorneys attempting to help Trump overturn the will of the Pennsylvanian people,” the group tweeted, followed by their names, and their phone numbers and emails for work. After that, the group then said to “Make them famous.” They […]

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.

A thought came to me the other night. While not on the Lincoln was a tyrant bandwagon, I don’t reflexively think he’s one of the greatest Presidents anymore either. For one, I used to think he was justified in suspending habeas corpus, it’s in the Constitution. Then someone pointed out that it’s in Article I, […]

With all the news still going on about the coronavirus, the guys decided to discuss several issues that aren’t directly related to the pandemic.

First up is the contraceptive mandate in Obamacare. The Trump administration relaxed the rules for having to provide them for employees and appeals court stopped it. The Supreme Court took up the issue. Also, the Super PAC called The Lincoln Project released an ad called, “Mourning in America,” a take on Ronald Reagan’s famous reelection ad from 1984, except this one is a direct shot at President Trump, who didn’t take it very well. The guys also discuss Josh Hawley’s op-ed in the New York Times calling for the abolishment of the World Trade Organization.
