I’m going to ignore policies in this post. By now, I think we know where each candidate stands on particular issues. I want to focus on their character. The media constantly tells me how Trump is an awful, malignant human being, and that alone should disqualify him for office. I’m then told that Biden is […]

Join Jim and Greg as they cheer President Trump’s selection of Judge Amy Coney Barrett for the U.S. Supreme Court. They also dig into the New York Times story on Trump’s taxes and discuss what might be damaging and what’s just noise. And they discuss the spectrum of attacks Democrats and their media allies are aiming at Judge Barrett – from Obamacare scares to bashing her for being a working mom to why adopting kids from Haiti is somehow troubling.

Show this list to your Trump-hating friends, if they’re still talking to you. The list is shorter than it would otherwise be, for that purpose. The list is limited to verifiable things that were done by mainstream Democrats, and that an honest leftist would agree were wrong (or at least silly.) It’s for the latter […]

When the President failed to answer a simple, albeit butchered, question with a “sure thing . . . peaceful transition . . . next question,” I’ll admit to finding it a bit off-putting. Not because I think the Donald is about to attempt a coup, but just because I like tradition and I like to […]

“Judge of the Decade”, the Honorable Michael Warren (6th Circuit Court, Oakland County, MI) Author & Co-Creator of the Patriot Week Foundation https://www.patriotweek.org/ discusses the contentious and history-making Trump nomination to the Supreme Court of the United States. From a Constitutional perspective, can Democrats go through with their threats to “pack the court”? How and when did SCOTUS become so politicized? If Trump wins reelection, will a second term see a 7-2 Conservative court and how would that impact the country?

President Trump gave a virtual address to the United Nations, in which he talked like a boss, a completely unapologetic boss. He gave a health care speech yesterday which fills me and millions of other people with chronic illness and long-term health care concerns with great hope and joy.

His campaign speeches are so delightful, and he is in fighting trim, looking lean and well-rested. The man is masterful, striding from one event to the next, standing tall despite the ugly onslaughts. He is a true happy warrior. He dominates his press conferences, in spite of their eager animosity and dripping hostility, cutting them off and correcting them when they are rude.

The coalition now aligned against Trump shares something. Many, if not most, profit from human misery. At the same time they are isolated from the effects of human misery themselves. This is doubly true for the most vocal among them.

They are rarely individuals who produce things. They are not those who raise crops, fish, ranch, extract minerals, work in factories, or engage in construction. In large numbers those folks support Trump. Those who oppose Trump are not the men and women who repair machinery or maintain our infrastructure, haul goods, collect the trash, or clean our streets. Again, the folks with dirty jobs largely support Trump.

On today’s episode of COVID in 19, Scott Immergut of Ricochet and Avik Roy of FREOPP talk about Joe Biden’s claim that Trump is responsible for all 200,000 COVID deaths in America. Also, how should we think about COVID’s impact on different ethnic groups? And how would the rollout of a vaccine actually work?

There’s a little checklist making the rounds on social media and purporting to list “characteristics of fascists.” As lists go it isn’t a very good one, in that it oddly omits the sine qua non, the single essential aspect, of fascism, which is the blunt use of government authority to completely control the economy and the people.

That, after all, is what fascism is, so it seems worth mentioning.

Join Jim and Greg as they reflect on the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg as well as President Trump’s reaction to the news. They also wade into the battle over whether Trump and Senate Republicans ought to press forward with a confirmation process before Election Day and counter Democrats’ insistence that doing so would somehow be unconstitutional. And they respond to the absurd overreactions of people like Barack Obama and Reza Aslan to the prospect of a new justice this year.

Now that the coronavirus crisis is essentially over but for the continuing economic disaster being wrought by various governors and power-drunk state officials, we could do with yet another catastrophe to keep the press enthused through the end of this election year.

The passing this week of Justice Ginsburg will do just fine.

Ep. 257 – This week’s episode feature Dave’s interviews at The Real Side Radio; Movie Critic Christian Toto, purveyor at HollywoodInToto.com discusses the controversial Netflix film “Cuties”, Sam Elliott, Burt Reynolds, and the Oscars. At @22:43 Jon Gabriel, Editor in Chief at Ricochet.com discusses the “Harris-Biden Administration” and why Arizona may be big trouble for both President Trump and Senator Martha McSally. At @42:22 Billboard’s Top 40 pop recording artist Ricky Rebel discusses his viral video MAGA (YMCA parody played in full at the end of the interview), and his thoughts on the Lefts’ identity politics.

Join Jim and Greg as they cheer the Abraham Accords and hope President Trump is right that several other Arab nations may soon normalize relations with Israel as well. They also discuss the claims of a possible Chinese whistleblower who claims she has evidence that COVID-19 came from a lab rather than a wet market and the Chinese Communist Party has been covering its tracks ever since. Jim explains why she ought to release whatever she has as soon as possible. And as the “experts” keep insisting states are totally prepared for massive mail-in voting, they groan as Michigan can’t even get the names in the presidential race right on the ballot.

The Democrats have a lot of nerve. While they are busy announcing that Trump will not leave the White House if he loses the election (just another way he’s baited them), the Democrats are going all out to make sure that nothing gets in the way of a Democrat victory. But the Republicans are not sitting by quietly while the Democrats run all over them: they are fighting aggressively to make sure that the election is a fair one.

What are the Democrats doing to ensure a fair election?

Ep. 256 – Bestselling Author Lee Smith @LeeSmithDC discusses how the Trump Russia collusion hoax, the bogus impeachment charges, “weaponizing COVID-19”, the coordinated riots laying waste to US cities, the two-tier justice systems, and vote-by-mail election fraud is all part of THE PERMANENT COUP. Then at @37:00: Last year #1 New York Times bestselling Author Kyle Mills @KyleMillsAuthor presciently wrote about Coronavirus and now joins us to discuss his latest Vince Flynn novel TOTAL POWER which deals the entire US power grid being taken out by terrorists throwing America into chaos for a year. After California’s recent power outages, we must ask how would the country survive without electricity for weeks, months or even a year?

Join Jim and Greg as they get a kick out of New York Democrat Rep. Max Rose posting a six-second ad just to bash deeply unpopular Mayor Bill de Blasio and hope it means Rep. Rose is feeling nervous. They also wade into the supposedly explosive revelations about President Trump’s coronavirus approach in Bob Woodward’s new book. And they fume as our tax dollars help pay for an event calling for an end to capitalism and even the United States itself.

In some sense the United States was an innovation, a bold experiment that turned into a spectacular success. According to Bret Weinstein, this success is proof of concept, and the system devised has been wildly successful at producing well-being, though unfairly distributed to certain population groups. The solution is not to un-invent the system, it’s to figure out how to correct the unfairness. The system needs an adjustment. Bret believes that Unity 2020 is our way to break the corrupt duopoly holding this country in gridlock and sowing division between Democrats and Republicans. A biologist and evolutionary theorist, Bret’s background is in studying complex systems and the evolution of humans in particular. He outlines his innovative and bold plan to galvanize disaffected voters, force both parties to meet in the middle and affect a lasting change in the way this country is governed. Will it work in 2020? Is there time? If not, what can we hope for in the future?

With the Election 2020 and COVID monopolizing the news, the financial distress of businesses is receiving little coverage. Stephen Moore, White House Economic Adviser and Economic Recovery Task Force answers the hard questions about the tsunami of Commercial Real Estate defaults, small business closures, the National Debt, AB5, Payroll Tax holiday. Then at @30:10, Congressional Candidate for CA-7 Buzz Patterson joined Dave at The Real Side Radio on the Salem and GCN Network; Buzz discusses why the Biden campaign is scared, flipping the House red through California, the very real threat of Vote By Mail balloting and how we may not know the results of the election for weeks beyond Nov. 4th. Find Buzz at http://Buzz4Congress.com.

Join Jim and Greg as they cheer the August jobs report showing nearly 1.4 million new jobs and the unemployment rate dropping well below expectations. They also wade into the anonymous allegations in “The Atlantic” that President Trump uttered disparaging comments about our war dead and wounded veterans. And as Joe Biden starts making public appearances, the cringe-inducing moments come with him. Why does Biden never pay a price for comments that might sink other political figures?
