The SVB Collapse, Guess Who’s Gonna Pay for It, China’s Middle East Meddling
Listen to “The SVB Collapse, Guess Who’s Gonna Pay for It, China’s Middle East Meddling” on Spreaker.
Join Jim and Greg as they break down the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank, and how the financial institution bankrolling many of the nation’s top venture capital-backed firms went into crisis. They also throw a flag on President Biden’s contention that U.S. taxpayers will not be on the hook for bailing out the bank’s depositors. Finally, they shudder at the news of China brokering a restoration of relations between Saudi Arabia and Iran. Why is the restoring of relations a bad thing? In this case, there’s lots of reasons.
2022 Martini Awards Part 5: Most Overreported Story, Most Underreported Story, Best Story of 2022
Listen to “2022 Martini Awards Part 5: Most Overreported Story, Most Underreported Story, Best Story of 2022” on Spreaker.
It’s media day in our year-end Three Martini Lunch awards and Jim and Greg have plenty to say about how things were covered – if they were covered at all. Specifically, they look at the stories the mainstream media covered far too much, the ones they conveniently ignored because they didn’t fit their narrative, and they highlight what they saw as the best stories of 2022.
Widespread China Protests, Iran’s Blinding Crackdown, Trump’s Unappetizing Guests
Listen to “Widespread China Protests, Iran’s Blinding Crackdown, Trump’s Unappetizing Guests” on Spreaker.
After a brief discussion of the Jets decisive victory over the Bears, Jim and Greg cheer on the brave protesters in China who are fed up with the CCP’s suffocating COVID policies and demanding other freedoms in the face of a repressive regime. They also wince as an Iranian paramilitary group violently confronts protesters and even blinds many of them. And they react to Trump’s dinner with Kanye West last week that also included Milo Yiannopoulos and Nick Fuentes – a trio that Jim refers to as “the Mount Rushmore of lunatics.”

Iranian Courage, FIFA Corruption, Dems Boosting Trump
Listen to “Iranian Courage, FIFA Corruption, Dems Boosting Trump” on Spreaker.
Join Jim and Greg as they are stunned by the Iranian World Cup team refusing to sing their national anthem and the captain directly stating that the players support the protesters back home. Jim also lays into FIFA, which organizes the World Cup, for its pattern of corruption and coziness with authoritarian regimes like Qatar, Russia, and China. And they have plenty to say about how Democrats plan to help Donald Trump become the GOP nominee in 2024 because they think he will be easier to beat than Gov. DeSantis.
More GOP Momentum, Iran’s ‘Imminent’ Threat, Biden’s Tired Act
Listen to “More GOP Momentum, Iran’s ‘Imminent’ Threat, Biden’s Tired Act” on Spreaker.
Join Jim and Greg discuss how the 3 Martini Lunch factored into a major debate Tuesday night! Then the turn to the martinis as they welcome polling evidence that even more House races are tilting towards the Republicans and nearly all generic polls show a GOP edge…but you still need to vote! They also groan as Saudi intelligence suggests Iran is planning an “imminent” attack but also note the likely return of Benjamin Netanyahu to in Israel. And President Biden plans to discuss why voting for his party is needed to save democracy after his party spent millions trying to get Republicans nominated who they considered the most extreme.
Feminists Quiet on Iran, Diplomat for Plants & Animals, From Latinx to Latine
Listen to “Feminists Quiet on Iran, Diplomat for Plants & Animals, From Latinx to Latine” on Spreaker.
Rob Long is in for Jim, Join Rob and Greg as they discuss why American feminists don’t have much to say about women in Iran risking their lives for freedom – and when they do it gets really weird. They also groan as President Biden names the wife of his chief of staff as a “diplomat for plants and animals.” Lastly, they get a kick out of lefties finally realizing that “Latinx” is only hurting their efforts to win back Latino voters – only to come up with an equally absurd name and declare war on Spanish language articles and pronouns.
Biden & Iran, Alaska & Ranked Choice, Energy & Your Freedom
Listen to “Biden & Iran, Alaska & Ranked Choice, Energy & Your Freedom” on Spreaker.
Join Jim and Greg as they serve up three bad but very important martinis. First, they sigh as the Biden administration gives in to yet another Iranian demand in order to reach a new nuclear deal. They also wince as Democrats win the lone congressional seat in Alaska and blast the state’s ranked choice voting system that allowed a candidate who finished fourth in the actual vote with just 10 percent of the vote to win the election. And they raise alarms in response to California urging people not to charge their electric vehicles just days after announcing plans to ban gas-powered vehicles while residents in Colorado were forbidden from lowering the temperature in their own homes due to an “energy emergency.”
Iran Deal Delusion, California’s Car Mandates, Biden’s Student Loan Lies
Listen to “Iran Deal Delusion, California’s Car Mandates, Biden’s Student Loan Lies” on Spreaker.
Join Jim and Greg as they serve up two bad martinis and a crazy one. First, they groan as the Biden administration foolishly pursues a new Iran nuclear deal that in several ways would be even worse than the original. They also fume as California lays out plans to ban the sale of gasoline-powered cars by 2035, explain how electric vehicles are a thoroughly unacceptable option for millions of Americans, and how government has no business forcing options on us that we don’t want. And they have a LOT to say about the Biden administration’s rollout of its plan to force Americans who didn’t take out student loans or have paid them off to cover those costs for others.
Calling out Biden’s Lie, Dems’ Absurd Economic Message, Boston Globe’s Iran Insanity
Listen to “Calling out Biden’s Lie, Dems’ Absurd Economic Message, Boston Globe’s Iran Insanity” on Spreaker.
Join Jim and Greg as they credit the Washington Post for calling out a blatant Biden lie about energy policy in his recent Wall Street Journal column. They also shake their heads as Biden’s messaging on the economy appears to be that the economy is great and we just don’t appreciate it and that he has a plan for inflation when he already admits that he doesn’t. Finally, they slam the Boston Globe for urging Biden to remove Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps from our terrorism list on the very same day FBI Director Christopher Wray says Iran tried a cyberattack against Boston Children’s Hospital.
