Join Jim and Greg as they discuss how the RNC was smart to move away from wall-to-wall speeches politicians and showcase how policies are working in the lives of American citizens and how socialist and communist policies have devastated other nations. They also point out that Joe Biden’s belated plea for peaceful protesting fell on deaf ears as rioters ravaged Minneapolis over the false rumor that a murder suspect had been killed by police. And they wonder what the next step will be after NBA players refuse to play in playoff games over the shooting of Jacob Blake in Wisconsin.
Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review is in for Jim today. Join her and Greg as they discuss Planned Parenthood finally admitting that founder Margaret Sanger was an advocate of eugenics and that it is taking her name off its Manhattan facility. They also unload on Portland “leaders” for allowing seven weeks of violence and property destruction to go on without consequences but denouncing the federal government for stepping in to deal with the problem. And Alexandra wonders why Joe Biden is trying to win over religious conservatives after endorsing taxpayer-funded abortions and suing nuns over birth control coverage.
In the 1970’s the Equal Rights Amendment was on its way to swift ratification, when a woman named Phyllis Schlafly launched a grassroots effort to torpedo the amendment by showing women why they didn’t want it.
Wednesday night, F/X and Hulu are teaming up to present “Mrs. America,” a multi-part examination of the battle over the Equal Rights Amendment in the 1970’s and 1980’s. Unsurprisingly, the Hollywood story line is that the amendment was a good thing and Mrs. Schlafly was wrong to oppose it.
According to Schlafly’s daughter Anne Schlafly Cori, “Mrs. America” gets her mother’s hair and wardrobe exactly right but fails to capture her warmth and ability to inspire thousands of women. It also badly mischaracterizes the Schlafly marriage.
In this podcast, Schlafly Cori explains why her mother jumped in to lead the fight against the ERA, what she thinks of efforts by Democrats to claim they’ve ratified the amendment long after the window of opportunity expired, and why she thinks the resurgence is all about abortion.
As Jim says, this week has been a very long year. But it is Friday, and while so much is closed, the Three Martini Lunch is open! Join Jim and Greg as they praise the innovation in the private sector (and at universities) to produce new coronavirus tests that are accurate, can be produced in mass quantities, and can deliver results much more quickly. They also love the entrepreneurial instinct in a British teenager who sold his classmates squirts of hand sanitizer. They also unload on communist China for brazen lies like the U.S. military launched the coronavirus in China and for threatening to cut off supplies of much needed medications to the U.S. at our time of need. And they hammer House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for trying to cram a billion dollars for taxpayer-funded abortions into the coronavirus relief legislation.
The Three Martini Lunch has you covered as the presidential race narrows yet again. Join Jim and Greg as they react to Elizabeth Warren dropping out of the 2020 field and chronicling how this top-tier candidate turned into an electoral dud. They also dissect Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s bizarre threats against Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh outside the Supreme Court on Wednesday and his pathetic response to the rebuke from Chief Justice John Roberts. And they sigh as the coronavirus panic leads the National College Players Association to suggest the NCAA play its March Madness games with no audiences in the arenas.
The Democrats running for president disagree on quite a few things but all of them support Roe v. Wade and most seem to have little regard for pro-life members of their party.
Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Pete Buttigieg have all indicated they are not interested in finding common ground with a group that makes up about 30 percent of the Democratic Party according to a recent Gallup survey. Amy Klobuchar says she welcomes them in the party but has not said where she would be willing to compromise.
Democrats for Life Executive Director Kristen Day says the party has lurched left on abortion over the past 20-30 years, shifting from wanting abortion to be safe, legal, and rare to advocating for abortions at any stage of pregnancy for any reason and wanting taxpayers to cover the bill.
Ms. Day gained notoriety for asking Buttigieg whether pro-life Democrats belonged in the party at an Iowa town hall earlier in the campaign season.
In this conversation with Greg Corombos, Day explains how she hopes to change hearts and minds among Democrats on abortion, what she thinks of Senate Democrats rejecting measures to ban most late term abortions or require care for babies who are born following an attempted abortion, and how she is approaching her vote in next week’s Virginia primary.
Pull up a stool! There’s lots to discuss following Tuesday’s poorly run debate in South Carolina. First, Jim and Greg discuss how CBS allowed the debate to descend into an incoherent mess with multiple candidates talking over one another on multiple occasions, but they also highlight Elizabeth Warren’s latest howitzer aimed at Mike Bloomberg, Joe Biden’s latest statistical fiction, and Pete Buttigieg’s attempt to claim the anti-socialist high ground. In addition, they slam the Charleston Democratic Party for charging outrageous prices for tickets to the debate. And they analyze Sanders’ decision to leave South Carolina early in order to campaign for two days in Elizabeth Warren’s home state of Massachusetts, which votes on Super Tuesday.
Pro-life activists flocked to Washington on Friday for the 47th Annual March for Life. And those in attendance witnessed the first ever in-person appearance at the march by a sitting U.S. president.
What is the significance of Trump appearing to speak at the rally? Just how far have Democrats tacked to the extreme on abortion? And where does the public actually stand?
New Jersey Rep. Chris Smith addressed all of these questions with Greg Corombos and fires back against the “pernicious lie” that pro-life activists only care about babies until they’re born.
Chad Benson grabs a stool for today’s Three Martini Lunch while Jim is away. Today, Chad and Greg briefly discuss the significance of President Trump becoming the first sitting president to address the March for Life. Then they get a kick out of learning that the House impeachment managers are successfully alienating the group of senators they can least afford to lose – GOP moderates. They also richly enjoy watching a dad who scrimped and saved to pay for his daughter’s college education dissect the progressive lunacy of Elizabeth Warren’s college debt forgiveness plan right to her face. And as Democrats and their media allies dig for dirt on a strengthening Bernie Sanders, they brace for a riveting fight over whether Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders was more racially insensitive in the 1970’s.
