Join Jim and Greg as they salute Capitol Police Officer Eugene Goodman for his quick thinking in leading the mob away from the U.S. Senate on Wednesday. They also discuss the growing support for a recall of California Gov. Gavin Newsom, as California fails some of the most basic functions of government. And they point out that for all the alleged urgency towards another impeachment, congressional leaders seem to be pretty patient.

Join Jim and Greg as they cheer the effort from House Republicans to kick California Rep. Eric Swalwell off the House Intelligence Committee. They also welcome AOC saying Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer should no longer be leaders but she gives a surprisingly interesting answer for why they still are in charge. And Jim and Greg fire back at critics whining that the nations that developed the coronavirus vaccines get to use it first.

Join Jim and Greg as they relish Democrats likely having such a tight majority in the House that it will be tough for many to accept jobs in the executive branch because the vacancies could make it tough for Democrats to get much legislation done. They also hammer musician John Legend for suggesting you’ll do more good donating to Democrats running for U.S. Senate in Georgia than giving to your local food bank. And they update the infighting among Democrats by discussing the latest salvos from Joe Manchin and AOC.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome NPR’s admission that it failed listeners in its favorable interview of a radical author who thinks property ownership is a form of white supremacy, although they wonder why such a person was ever invited onto NPR in the first place. They also roll their eyes as New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo warns President Trump he would need an army to return safely to New York City. And they try to figure out why Nancy Pelosi decided to launch a conspiracy theory about her flouting of the San Francisco COVID restrictions instead of just letting the story die.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome Massachusetts voters rejecting the Senate bid of Rep. Joe Kennedy III, who didn’t have a reason to run other than being a Kennedy, and helping dismantle the stupid notion that America has a royal family. They also unload on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for flouting COVID restrictions while constantly lecturing everyone else. And they hammer local D.C. political figures for wanting to “remove, relocate, or contextualize” the Jefferson Memorial and Washington Monument among other sites – and call out the Washington Post for pretending there was never a call to remove or relocate them.

Join Jim and Greg for four big stories today! After a classic Jim rant on young people being offended by text messages with periods, they applaud the first night of the Republican National Convention and explain why they believe it was so effective. They also chronicle the epic fall of Jerry Falwell, Jr. and the lessons from this sordid saga. And they hammer House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for calling Republicans “domestic enemies” and “enemies of the state.”

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome Dr. Fauci insisting that people can safely vote in person. They also wade into the leftist hysteria over President Trump allegedly crippling the U.S. Postal Service in advance of the election. And they discuss the speculation that Trump is weighing a possible pardon for NSA leaker Edward Snowden.

Rob Long is in for Jim again Wednesday. Today, they celebrate the news that the FBI found no evidence of a hate crime in connection to a “noose” found in the garage of Bubba Wallace but that doesn’t stop Wallace and Al Sharpton from insisting something sinister happened. They also slam House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for saying the Republican police reform bill is tantamount to them getting away with the murder of George Floyd. And they discuss the primary election results showing another AOC-like Democrat headed to Congress from New York and wonder how America will react to vote counts lasting several days or even weeks come November.

Join Jim and Greg as they celebrate courts in Wisconsin and Oregon siding with freedom over heavy-handed governors, although Oregon Supreme Court just overruled the lower court and sided with the governor. They’re also exasperated as President Trump takes hydroxychloroquine, despite testing negative for coronavirus, in the latest salvo in this bizarre battle over whether the drug helps treat COVID-19. They also hammer House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for making the fight even more juvenile. And they respond to a liberal opinion writer in the New York Times pathetically changing what they really meant by #BelieveWomen so it doesn’t apply to Joe Biden and Tara Reade.

Join Jim and Greg as they examine media critic Howard Kurtz’s call for TV hosts to rely on infectious disease experts to assess the coronavirus instead of more familiar faces. They also hammer “The Atlantic” and two law professors for concluding that China’s crackdown on internet speech is a better way to go than America’s default towards free speech. And they unload on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for lying about opposing Trump’s China travel ban and for suggesting Trump was wrong even to allow American citizens and green card holders to return from China.

From the Friday, April 3 column entitled “Pols Face a Coronavirus Test”:

Example: The Trump administration spent this week distributing ventilators, standing up small-business loans, dispatching hospital ships, erecting alternate care facilities, explaining virus modeling, revamping regulations to keep truckers on the road, and plastering the airwaves with information about hygiene and social distancing. Speaker Nancy Pelosi spent this week setting up a new House committee to investigate Donald Trump.

I would say “Trump Focus,” but this implicates the press and opposition as well. It was in a long email insert that is probably circulating and I don’t know of the accuracy for dates cited. Earlier people given credit for the connection were American Spectator’s Dov Fischer and Joel Pollack at Breitbart. Eridemus would like the […]

Today, Jim and Greg applaud the practical approach of Dr. Fauci on chloroquine. They also grumble as Nancy Pelosi and Andrew Cuomo are still not sold on the COVID-19 relief bill, and Jim unloads on Bernie for still focusing on the 2020 campaign.

 

It’s all crazy news on Tuesday’s Three Martini Lunch! Join Jim and Greg as they catalogue the irrelevant and expensive Democratic Party wish list that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wanted to promote while holding up vital coronavirus relief for families and businesses and how Pelosi wrongly assumed the media would cover for her. They also roll their eyes as multiple media outlets try to blame President Trump for the death of one man and the illness of the man’s wife after they consumed fish tank cleaner because it contained chloroquine. And they react to Liberty University welcoming students and faculty back to campus while the rest of Virginia and the nation increasingly shut down.

State of the Union, Pelosi ripping up the speech, the Senate impeachment vote, and the ongoing incompetence of Iowa Democrats. We’ve got it all for you today on Wednesday’s Three Martini Lunch. Join Jim and Greg as they applaud the amazing number of record-low unemployment statistics cited by President Trump in his State of the Union address Tuesday night. They’re also big fans of conservative policy ideas espoused in the speech and note the impressive guests Trump invited and highlighted in his address. In contrast, they also assess House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ripping up her copy of the speech right after Trump finished and what is says about Democrats nine months before Election Day. Finally, they have plenty more to say as Iowa Democrats release more than two-thirds of the caucus results but aren’t sure when or if the rest of the votes will be announced.

E. and I missed the House impeachment proceedings. We scouted every upscale marina on the Potomac but failed to locate a skiff large enough to accommodate the horde of Adam Shiftless’s secret witnesses. I vowed to do better for the Senate trial. I hired some former Blackwater guys to tail Fatty Nadler as he slow-waddled […]

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Overplaying the Weak Hand

 

If people keep getting away with outrageous behavior, if their provocations and incursions against decency and order are tolerated, for whatever reason, they begin to think that they’re in control. If their followers and those around them reinforce that impression, they risk growing deluded about their own authority and power.

Appeasement makes people foolish. Yes, it makes the appeaser seem weak, but it also misleads the appeased into imagining that they hold all the cards, and encourages them to raise too fast and bet too much. They begin to believe their own bluffs.
