Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America break down the news of Maine and Nevada refusing to join the popular vote pact to change presidential elections. Michael Avenatti is on his way to losing his license to practice law. And Baltimore’s Mayor wants criminals to swap bullets for boxing gloves.
David French of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America celebrate stronger than expected economic growth of 3.2 percent in the first quarter of 2019. They also pour cold water on the absurd notions that Anita Hill was treated unfairly by the Senate Judiciary Committee in 1991 and that Clarence Thomas is somehow assumed guilty of doing what she accused him of doing. And they react to a judge in Massachusetts and the mayor of Baltimore finding themselves in heaps of legal trouble.
As Baltimore’s murder count skyrockets, residents are taking to the streets begging for a murder free weekend. According to Hot Air.com, the city has yet to see a murder-free weekend this year, and its murder rate may soon pass Chicago’s. This is chilling, as Baltimore’s population is significantly smaller than that of Chicago. Baltimore residents, among them a mother with young children, are taking action by walking the streets issuing a “Nobody Kill Anybody” plea to street corner drug dealers. The campaign asks for a cease-fire on the first weekend of August. This was attempted before, but without success. ~ Sarah Schutte
