Another Virtue Signal Goes Broke

 

Samuel Bankman-Fried with US Rep. Maxine Waters, D-CA, outgoing chair of the House Financial Services Committee.

Before November 8, I’d never heard of Samuel Bankman-Fried (SBF). I’d never heard of FTX. I didn’t know that SBF and FTX bought naming rights for the arena where the NBA’s Miami Heat play, nor the University of California at Berkeley’s football stadium.

While I’ve heard of Bitcoin, Ethereum, DogeCoin, and maybe one or two other cryptocurrencies, I’d never heard of FTT, SBF’s creation. I never knew about all the love SBF bought from cultural icons like Larry David or football legend Tom Brady, who did commercials for FTX I never saw.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome Judge Cahill publicly rebuking Rep. Maxine Waters for demanding a guilty verdict and demanding more confrontation from demonstrators if they don’t get it. They also hammer CBS News for talking about where some of the jurors live as we wait for a verdict. And they cringe while discussing a legal effort to decriminalize incest in New York. Finally, they share their memories of former Vice President Walter Mondale, who died Monday at age 93.

Maxine vs. Minneapolis

 

As usual, Maxine Waters is making things worse. The Democrat Congresswoman flew to Brooklyn Center, MN, to encourage violence in the police shooting of Daunte Wright.

Reporters asked “Auntie Maxine,” as she calls herself, what protestors should do if Derek Chauvin is acquitted in the death of George Floyd.  She replied, “We got to stay on the street and we’ve got to get more active, we’ve got to get more confrontational, we’ve got to make sure that they know that we mean business.”

Join Jim and Greg as they see some glimmers of good news for Putin critic Alexei Navalny but wonder how firm the Biden administration really plans to be when it comes to Russia. They also shudder as prices for fuel, food, and other goods, are clearly on the rise. And they call out Rep. Maxine Waters for suggesting anything less than a guilty verdict for murder in the Derek Chauvin case should result in more confrontation in the streets.

What’s My Lyin’

 

I was in D.C. for my annual speech to the International Mensa Convocation when my longtime friend, attorney, and part-time oenophile, E. Hobart Calhoun, invited me to join him on the front row for a live presentation of the House Democracks’ hot new game show, What’s My Lyin’?

E. had just been named as the 78th member of President Big D’s impeachment defense team. As low man on Big D’s lawyer totem pole, E. had been dispatched to monitor the hit show, where panelists try to guess the contestant’s occupation.

Do the Democrats Want a Civil War? We Need to Know

 

As you may have noticed, Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) is at it again. This time, she has picked up on the fact that some of the leftist thugs in our midst have taken to harassing members of the Trump administration, refusing to serve them when they sit down at an eatery, driving them from restaurants, and making a racket outside their homes.

Here is what she said: “If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombus of Radio America celebrate the Supreme Court upholding the Constitution in two separate cases. They agree with the court’s conclusion that President Trump’s travel ban is within his constitutional and statutory right. They are also glad to see the Court side with free speech in striking down a California law that required crisis pregnancy centers to advertise abortion services. They are also pleasantly surprised that Democratic leaders are condemning Maxine Waters’ calls for the harassment of Trump administration officials.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are pleasantly surprised to see a new CBS poll showing that a strong plurality of Americans believe families should stay together but be sent back to their home countries when they come to the U.S. illegally.  They also slam Rep. Maxine Waters for suggesting protesters should loudly confront every Trump administration cabinet member whether in restaurants or at the gas station.  And they categorically reject columnist George Will’s call for conservatives to vote Democrats into the majorities of the House and Senate as punishment for Republicans who refuse to stand up to President Trump.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America shake their heads as the Republican National Committee furiously tries to line up a few Democrats to push Mike Pompeo over the finish line as the next Secretary of State.  They also hang their heads as large percentages of Americans demonstrate very poor knowledge about the Holocaust, including 41 percent of Americans and 66 percent of millennials who have no idea what Auschwitz was.  And they throw up their hands, as the Republican National Committee tries to discredit the upcoming media blitz from former FBI Director James Comey by favorable quoting Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and Maxine Waters.

Cosa Nostradamus

 

My longtime attorney and close friend, E. Hobart Calhoun, and I rode in silence in the ancient elevator, crowded against the wall by the sheet-covered hulk on the gurney. Following E.’s instructions, I avoided eye contact with Don Trumpleone and his bare-chested consigliere, Vladimir Putini, former head of the Brighton Beach family, now Don T.’s closest confidant.

The elevator groaned and lurched to a halt. Putini pulled back the metal grating and pushed the gurney into the examining room, where Trent “T-Lo” Lottisi waited, somber in his red and white striped vest, straw boater, and sleeve garter.

The perpetually angry Congressperson Maxine Waters has pronounced the entire Cabinet of the United States of America “a bunch of scumbags” and has aimed her rancid, despicable, (dare I say it?) deplorable — in the truest sense of the word– grotesqueness in particular at Secretary of State Rex Tillerson because he’s a part of the […]
