It’s all crazy today! Join Jim and Greg as we react to #MeToo activist Alyssa Milano suddenly finding a complicated gray area on assault allegations now that Joe Biden is one being accused. They also sigh as President Trump reportedly rejects polling data that suggests his coronavirus briefings could be hurting him politically and that he’s losing to Biden. And they recoil at the aggressive efforts to free prisoners under the pretense of virus mitigation.
Join Jim and Greg as they welcome encouraging news about COVID-19 testing, vaccines, and treatments that has Wall Street feeling bullish and suggesting that the Chinese communists were wrong again. They also hammer New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio for breaking up the well-attended funeral of a rabbi in Brooklyn and warning that if it happens again there will be summons or arrests. And they dig into a new poll suggesting a majority of Americans would be inclined to suspend the November elections if coronavirus is still a major concern.
Join Jim and Greg for the Friday martinis! After a quick discussion on Michigan Democrats censuring one of their state representatives who recovered from COVID and thanked President Trump for mentioning hydroxychloroquine, they turn to three bad martinis. First, they’re bummed to hear Chinese trials of remdesivir were apparently a bust. They also grimace as the virus is significantly limiting production at meat processing plants. And they hammer Trump and the media over Thursday’s disinfectant dust-up.
Join Jim and Greg as they salute the stunning dedication of employees at a polypropylene plant in Pennsylvania. They’re also staggered by more than 26 million jobs lost and discuss how to re-engage the economy responsibly. And they assess data suggesting there were tens of thousands of coronavirus cases in American cities by March 1. Finally, they forecast tonight’s NFL Draft and Greg has fun imagining how National Review drafted Jim Geraghty back in the day.
Join Jim and Greg as they welcome more help from Congress to help small businesses stay afloat. They also shudder at a new poll showing 75 percent of seniors don’t even want non-essential workers to be allowed outside. And they discuss the significance of learning coronavirus was here and killing people earlier than we thought.
Join Jim and Greg as they slam AOC’s economic lunacy and callously partisan response to Monday’s plummeting oil futures. They also shake their heads as CNN says Kim Jong Un is in grave condition and NBC has him brain dead, while Reuters has him fine just hours later. And they gag as Gayle King of CBS gushes that “everyone know” Stacey Abrams is “extremely qualified” to be Joe Biden’s running mate.
Join Jim and Greg for an upbeat Friday edition! Today, after assessing Joe Biden’s latest live television mess, they welcome the three-phase plan to bring the U.S. economy back to life. They also marvel at the medicinal and practical ways our hospitals are treating COVID-19. And they break down the curious arguments of Dr. Phil and Dr. Oz, both of whom became household names courtesy of Oprah.
Join Jim and Greg as they welcome news that hospitals in most parts of the country have decent capacity for more patients – a big improvement from earlier in the month. They also recoil as more than 80 percent of Americans want to keep social distancing even if it means more economic damage. And they get a kick out of Elizabeth Warren offering a ridiculously late endorsement of Joe Biden, now that he’s the last one standing for the Democrats.
Join Jim and Greg as they cheer the recovery of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his heartfelt thanks to those who saved his life. They also slam Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer for implementing insane restrictions like not being able to visit someone else’s home and not being able to buy plants, flowers, seeds, or even child car seats. And they unload on the New York Times for dismissing a woman’s sexual assault claim against Joe Biden by saying it could not find any other pattern of abuse except for the women who already accused him of hugs, kisses, and touching that made them uncomfortable.
Concerns over the coronavirus have forced the postponement of several political primaries and Wisconsin recently served as the focal point of a bitter debate over in-person voting during a health crisis.
Many voting rights activists are now pushing hard for voting by mail to be an option for every voter come November, but some experts say that idea could lead to big problems with election integrity.
President Trump and others contend voting by mail – while available in every state – is more vulnerable to fraud than in-person voting.
Hans von Spakovsky served on the Federal Election Commission, on President Trump’s commission on election integrity, and manages the Election Law Reform Initiative at the Heritage Foundation. In this podcast, von Spakovsky explains why he thinks this push is premature, why House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s approach to voting by mail would be an election integrity nightmare, and why voting by mail does open up the most opportunities for mischief.
