Join Jim and Greg as they appreciate new research from Trinity University in Ireland and The Ohio State University showing that the climate alarmists are way off and that increased carbon dioxide is absorbed by trees and others plants and makes them stronger – just like we learned in basic biology class. They also wince as the Biden administration continues to tread very lightly with Iran despite more than four dozen attacks on U.S. positions in the Middle East by Iran proxy groups and the hijacking of a ship in the Red Sea by Iran-backed Houthi rebels. Finally, they get a good laugh out of a USA TODAY story bemoaning the serious injuries illegal immigrants are suffering by falling off of our new 30-foot high border walls. And of course, there’s no suggestion that the migrants are responsible for their own actions. No, it’s the wall’s fault – and the people that wanted it.
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America cheer the Supreme Court’s ruling in favor of a Christian baker who was sued for not customizing a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony but note the ruling focused on this particular case rather than broader issues of conscience and religious liberty. They also cringe as Bill Clinton still sees himself as the victim in the Monica Lewinsky scandal and scolds an NBC reporter for even bringing it up. And they’re incredulous as President Trump boldly announces he has the power to pardon himself and Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, contends Trump could not even be indicted for killing former FBI Director James Comey while still in office.
