Join Jim and Greg as they share three martinis with former Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman, who was also the vice presidential nominee for the Democrats in the 2000 presidential campaign. They discuss why Lieberman sees Russia and Iran as the biggest immediate threats to U.S. national security and his blunt assessments of how the Biden administration handled the withdrawal from Afghanistan and how it is approaching Iran . They also discuss why communist China is not as high among imminent threats on Lieberman’s list. And Lieberman offers his reaction to Senators Manchin and Sinema standing up against the rest of their party on the filibuster and describes what it was like for him to stand alone on the Iraq War, opposing a public option on Obamacare and more.

Jim and Greg stand up and cheer for Women’s Tennis Association President Steve Simon and numerous players for publicly demanding that China prove that longtime tennis star Peng Shuai is alive and well and their her allegations of rape against a former high-ranking communist party official be seriously investigated. And they cheer Simon for willing to lose a billion dollars by pulling our of events in China if his concerns are not addressed quickly. They also cringe as the House of Representatives passes the bloated, deficit-growing spending bill known as Build Back Better, but they take a bit of solace in knowing this version likely won’t become law. And they fire back at an MSNBC columnist for telling parents that making demands about school policy and the curriculum is like telling a surgeon how to operate on your child.

Ricochet.com Editor-in-Chief Jon Gabriel is in for Jim today.  Join Greg and Jon as they welcome Sen. Sinema’s demands of no tax hikes on corporations, individuals, or capital gains. They also hammer Pres. Biden for pushing for the guaranteed boondoggle of high-speed rail, but Biden also admits the real goal is to get your car off the road. And they cringe as Democrats in Virginia take another swing at loosening absentee ballot rules.

 

Join Jim and Greg as they cheer on the resolve of Taiwan’s president and people in the face of growing Chinese threats. They also have questions as Attorney General Merrick Garland announces the FBI will start investigating alleged threats made against school officials in highly charged debates around the country. And they sigh as Dr. Fauci gives contradictory answers on whether he recommends people visit with family over the holidays and the CDC comes out with absurd guidelines for celebrating Thanksgiving.

 

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome a new poll showing Americans are far more negative towards President Biden’s big government spending binge once they know tax hikes would be part of it. They also cringe as China repeatedly threatens Taiwan by sending dozens of fighters and bombers over the island. And they discuss the leftist activists who chased Sen. Sinema into the bathroom to air their political grievances with her and how the activists are receiving virtually no condemnation in the media or elsewhere on the left.

Join Jim and Greg as they cheer on conservative activists trying to sink the nomination of the unqualified and radical HHS nominee, Xavier Becerra. They also roll their eyes as New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo claims he had no idea his actions offended any of the women accusing him of sexual harassment, and are disgusted that the media consider this a bigger story than the nursing home scandal. And they react to the revelation that the FBI gave Capitol Police had a fairly detailed warning of what would happen at the Capitol on January 6 but also told them not to take any actions as a result of it.

Join Jim and Greg as they credit National Journal’s Josh Kraushaar for documenting how President Biden has started far more to the left than he promised during the campaign. They also get a kick out of AOC allies targeting a a new Super PAC at defeating Democrats Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema after they refused to kill the legislative filibuster in the Senate. And they have fun with a column from a far left San Francisco teacher, who claims Bernie Sanders demonstrated white privilege with the coat and mittens he wore to the inauguration.
