Join Jim and Greg as they discuss the impact of Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema leaving the Democratic Party and becoming an independent – both on the functioning of the Senate and the 2024 Senate race in Arizona. They also break down the reporting of Bari Weiss on how Twitter really was shadow banning – or “visibility filtering” – certain accounts on the right. And they discuss the bizarre case of the Biden administration’s non-binary nuclear waste expert being charged with another felony after a second case of stealing someone else’s luggage at the airport.
David French of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America start the week with a whole menu of crazy martinis. They rip CNN and other social justice types for declaring President Trump’s Columbus Day statement insufficient because he didn’t mention the suffering that the explorers inflicted upon the indigenous people who were already adept at slaughtering each other. They’re also staggered as California enacts one law to criminalize the use of pronouns that conflict with a person’s stated gender identity and another law that no longer makes it a felony to expose a partner to HIV without telling them. And they react to Vice President Pence leaving Sunday’s Colts-49’ers game after some 49’ers knelt during the national anthem and President Trump’s tweetstorm against Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker.
