Join Jim and Greg as they cheer police in Oregon for vowing to pull back from parts of Portland after the local prosecutor refuses to press charges against rioters. They also slam Joe Biden for suggesting everyone needs to wear a mask outside of their homes regardless of the circumstances and for insisting on it for the next three months. And they vehemently disagree with New York City’s decision to cancel this year’s powerful 9/11 blue light display over COVID concerns.
Join Jim and Greg as they sip three good martinis today. First, they’re thrilled to hear that Israel and the United Arab Emirates are normalizing relations. They also shudder to learn the Maine Democratic Senate hopeful Sara Gideon repeatedly blocked legislation to ban female genital mutilation, but are thankful the story is coming to light for voters to consider. And they cheer weekly first-time jobless claims dropping below one million for the first time since the pandemic began.
Join Jim and Greg as they wince at the prospect of Sen. Kamala Harris being one of Joe Biden’s heart beats away from the presidency if the Democratic ticket wins in November. They also applaud Sarah Palin for her magnanimous advice to Harris based on her experience as John McCain’s running mate in 2008. And they hammer the “true conservatives” at the Lincoln Project for lavishing praise on Harris and laugh as Bill Kristol suggests only Harris and Pence should debate.
Join Jim and Greg as they discuss how the campaign is about to pivot from speculating about Joe Biden’s choice of running mate to dreading that person becoming president if Biden wins in November. They also highlight Kentucky Democratic Senate hopeful Amy McGrath’s habit of forgetting to pay taxes. And they have more than a few questions as Russia claims to have the first coronavirus vaccine.
Join Jim and Greg as they lament the Big Ten Conference reportedly cancelling the 2020 college football season and that puts every other conference on the brink as well. They also unload on Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot as rioters vandalize and loot along the city’s Magnificent Mile and attack and injure more than a dozen police officers. And they discuss former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown publicly urging former mistress Kamala Harris to decline the opportunity to be Joe Biden’s running mate.
Join Jim and Greg to close out the work week as they cheer a better-than-expected jobs report for July. They also wade through the egregious alleged financial improprieties at the National Rifle Association and the political overreach of New York attorney General Letitia James. And they’re a bit stunned as New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announces all schools in his state are welcome to return to in-person instruction this fall.
Join Jim and Greg as they welcome news that weekly first-time job losses are dropping nicely, even though employment in the pandemic is still a major challenge. They also approve of President Trump’s demand of adding an earlier debate or rescheduling one of the existing debates to make sure the two candidates meet before early voting begins. And just months after Rhode Island effectively banned New York residents, its neighbors are now returning the favor.
Join Jim and Greg as they dissect Joe Biden’s cringeworthy response to whether he’s taken a cognitive test. They also dig into the stunning incompetence in Lebanon that allowed more than 2,700 metric tons of ammonium nitrate to be stored so close to a major population center in Beirut. And as Biden reportedly narrows his VP choice to Kamala Harris and Susan Rice, Jim and Greg examine the brief but intense speculation over California Rep. Karen Bass.
Join Jim and Greg as they react to the breaking news of a massive explosion in Beirut, Lebanon. They also discuss President Trump’s comments on COVID, John Lewis and more in his Axios interview. And they hammer the federal judge who just ignored election law by ordering officials to count ballots that were not received by election day.
Join Jim and Greg as they are hopeful that a Microsoft purchase of TikTok will protect the privacy of millions of Americans and let everyone keep their little app. They also slam local officials in Maryland in Virginia who are clearly drunk on power. And they get a kick out of the obvious timing of a New York Times opinion column suddenly suggesting we ought to do away with presidential debates.
