Tag: Three Martini Lunch

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the surprising analysis from NBC’s Chuck Todd that Pres. Biden had a major credibility problem on many different issues. They also smile at reports that Democrats fear they won’t be able to pass the $3.5 trillion monstrosity in its entirety or maybe at all, and they point out just one truly absurd provision in the bill that would impact all of us. And they highlight White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki for her ridiculous contention that illegal immigrants are not planning to stay long in the United States.

Join Jim and Greg as they marvel at the new hi-tech details surrounding Israel’s successful targeting of an Iranian nuclear scientist back in November. They also welcome the perfectly logical conclusion of the Senate parliamentarian that amnesty for illegal immigrants does not belong in a budget reconciliation bill. And they vent as the Pentagon actually admits its ISIS-K drone strike actually killed a bunch of innocent people but top officials somehow stand by the intelligence behind the strike.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the partnership among the U.S., the United Kingdom, and Australia that will allow Australia to have nuclear submarines and hopefully pose a deterrent to China in the region.  They’re also glad to see special counsel John Durham is still alive and planning to indict a lawyer in connection with the 2016 effort to allege collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign.  And we fume at the FBI once again as Olympic gymnasts explain how the bureau completely dropped the ball on investigating team doctor and serial molester Larry Nassar.

Jim and Greg are fascinated to see public opinion catching up with the troubling performance of President Biden, especially among independents and women. They also groan as California voters overwhelmingly vote to keep Gov. Gavin Newsom and Democrats are likely to see the results as proof of support for their radical agenda. And they hammer away at Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley following reports he told Chinese officials he would tip them off if President Trump ordered an attack against them.

Join Jim and Greg as they react to Chinese state media open talking about flying jets over Taiwan, solidifying sovereignty, and warning other nations not to recognize Taiwan. They also groan as Secretary of State Antony Blinken keeps talking about his expectations that the Taliban will allow freedom of travel and right for women and girls – even though they aren’t doing those things and never will. And they react to Larry Elder’s website and a statement from President Trump alleging fraud in the results of today’s California recall.

Join Jim and Greg as they chronicle how the U.S. likely killed a U.S. ally instead of ISIS-K personnel in the drone strike following the terrorist attack at the Kabul airport.  And this news comes as the State Department stops processing special immigrant visa applications for our Afghan allies.  They also hammer the Democrats for proposing $3 trillion in higher taxes to pay for their bloated, reconciliation bill full of terrible policies.  And they sigh as more Democrats see Trump supporters and unvaccinated people as bigger threats than the Taliban or China.

Join Jim and Greg as they slam President Biden’s heavy-handed and logically inconsistent bullying act on COVID policy…and they discuss why he’s really doing this. They also hammer Democrats and their allies in the media for the despicable, racist coverage of California gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder. And they offer their reflections in advance of Saturday’s 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Join Jim and Greg as Jim sizes up Pres. Biden’s latest COVID strategy as “same as the old one only louder.” They also shudder at the weakness the U.S. is projecting around the world, most recently through the painfully pathetic statements of Defense Sec. Lloyd Austin and Sec. of State Antony Blinken. And they hammer Biden for refusing to relax his European travel ban.

Join Jim and Greg as they applaud conservative and mainstream media for calling out Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer over his lie that all Americans who wanted to get out of Afghanistan are now out. In a double-fisted bad martini, they hammer the State Department for greatly hindering the efforts of private groups to get Americans and our Afghan allies out of the country.  They also revisit the Obama administration’s terrible swap of five high-value Taliban figures for American deserter Bowe Bergdahl – and the impact it is having right now. And they marvel at the large number of online leftists who honestly think they can get Brett Kavanaugh removed from the U.S. Supreme Court.

Join Jim and Greg as they’re pleasantly staggered to see Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal publicly slamming the federal government for not doing more to get American citizens and our Afghan allies out of Afghanistan. They also dig into recently divulged documents showing labs in China were doing experiments with SARS-related cornavirus on mice with human cells and we paid for it. And they unload on the Biden administration for its ongoing lies about Americans and Afghan allies being allowed to leave.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome Sen. Joe Manchin’s warning that another massive spending bill would saddle our nation with a lot more inflation and debt. They also wince as the August jobs numbers come in far below expectations. Is it really all due to the Delta variant or is there more to it? And they refuse to throw any shrimps on the barbie for the Australian government as the country goes crazy with COVID lockdowns and crushing freedom.

Join Jim and Greg as they look at the good, bad, and crazy performances of the media in just the past 24 hours. They cheer Matt Lee of the Associated Press for doggedly asking an important question that the State Department refuses to answer. They also roll their eyes as much of the mainstream media honor the Biden administration’s wishes and push the ongoing crisis in Afghanistan much lower in their coverage. And they blast CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin – for several reasons – over his hysterical evaluation of the Supreme Court refusing to block pro-life legislation in Texas from taking effect.

Join Jim and Greg as they dissect Pres. Biden’s attempt to declare the withdrawal from Afghanistan an “extraordinary success” while also trying to blame President Trump for things going wrong and throwing out his bogus straw man arguments yet again for the decisions he made. They also welcome the scathing critique of the withdrawal from former Democratic Sen. Jim Webb, who is demanding vigorous oversight of the exit from Afghanistan. And they discuss the resignations of the two top vaccine officials at the Food and Drug Administration and how little the media seem interested in the news.

Join Jim and Greg as they fume over President Biden’s horrifically bad predictions and outright lies about his Afghanistan policy, most notably his vow to stay until all Americans are evacuated.  They also sigh as Secretary of State Antony Blinken tries to assure us that any American or Afghan ally who wants to leave will be able to do so because the Taliban promised to let them do it. And they react to the frustration of Gold Star families at how Biden interacted with them and tried to make their conversations about himself.

Join Jim and Greg as they process the latest difficult news out of Afghanistan. First, they discuss the American citizens who are trying to get out and can’t get to the airport while the U.S. government pretends it’s not happening. They also fume over a Washington Post story that the Taliban offered to give the U.S. control of Kabul until the withdrawal deadline and Biden turned them down. And they shake their heads as White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan insists we’ll have all sorts of leverage to get citizens and allies out of Afghanistan, even after our military leaves.

Join Jim and Greg as they salute the special forces veterans who rescued 500 Afghan allies in clandestine night operations designed to elude the Taliban. They’re also staggered to learn the U.S. gave the Taliban a list of U.S. citizens and Afghan allies they should let through their checkpoints, never thinking that we just handed our enemies a list of every Afghan they want dead. And they shudder at President Biden’s doddering press conference.

 

Join Jim and Greg as they assess the news of two terrorist attacks in Kabul, one at the Abbey Gate by the airport and one at the nearby Baron Hotel.  As they recorded, there were reports of three U.S. Marine casualties.  Since then, we know of numerous deaths and injuries among our heroes in the Armed Forces. They also react to the Taliban proving they haven’t changed a bit as their spokesman says there is no evidence that Osama bin Laden was behind the 9/11 terror attacks. And they bang their heads on the table at the news the Taliban could very well end up on the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women.

Join Jim and Greg as the welcome an actual good martini in addition to their evaluation of ever-worsening conditions in Afghanistan. First, they cheer the U.S. Supreme Court for ruling that the Biden administration must reinstate the “remain in Mexico” policy which requires asylum seekers to stay outside the U.S. while their claims are investigated. They also document a long list of mainstream media reports chronicling just how bad conditions are getting for people desperately trying to get to the Kabul airport and how the Biden administration’s narrative doesn’t match reality at all. And they’re getting suspicious that the Biden administration’s vow to evacuate every American who wants to get out may be setting up an ugly talking point after August 31st.

 

Join Jim and Greg as they celebrate the end of Andrew Cuomo’s governorship before digging into three sobering martinis. First, they fume as President Biden says our military presence will end on August 31. That decision means he is accepting the demands of the Taliban, even though many Americans and Afghan allies can’t get to the airport and now Afghans are barred from leaving. They also wince as a leaked State Department cable shows just 4,407 Americans have been evacuated with just a week left to get people out. And they discuss the latest “coincidence” adding even more evidence to the theory that COVID-19 started as a lab leak in Wuhan.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the FDA fully approving the Pfizer vaccine, although it does come with stronger calls for vaccine mandates. They also cringe as the Taliban says there will be “consequences” if the U.S. stays past August 31, especially since the U.S. is relying entirely on the Taliban honoring its word to allow Americans to get to the airport. And they roll their eyes as Biden refuses to address the horrific execution of the U.S. withdrawal and always reverts to the decision to withdraw.
