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.
Hillsdale College Radio General Manager and Radio Free Hillsdale Hour Host Scot Bertram is in for Jim. Today, Scot and Greg muse over the latest twists and turns in the House Speaker race as Louisiana Rep. Mike Johnson seems to be in position to get elected by his fellow Republicans today. Then it’s on to the martinis! First, they welcome a strong majority of New York voters agreeing with NYC Mayor Eric Adams that the illegal migrant crisis is going to destroy the city. And they overwhelmingly disapprove of how the Biden administration is handling the issue. They also recoil at the news Iranian proxies have launched drone attacks at U.S. positions in Syria and Iraq, injuring two dozen U.S. personnel. And they’re also mad that the government kept this information from the public for a week. Finally, they scold the Associated Press and taxpayer-funded Voice of America for telling their reporters not to refer to Hamas as terrorists.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome Democrats like New York Gov. Kathy Hochul acknowledging that cities and states cannot just accept an unlimited number of illegal immigrants – the same position Republicans were savaged for just a few years ago. They also wince as Republicans lose two very winnable seats in key state legislative races, but they hope other Republicans around the nation learn some important lessons from these defeats. Finally, they’re stunned and more than a bit amused by the news that New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez is under investigation for being paid $400,000 in gold bars to intervene on someone’s behalf at the Justice Department.
Hillsdale College Radio General Manager and Radio Free Hillsdale Hour Host Scot Bertram is in for Jim today. Join Scot and Greg as they dig into an Italian study showing solar panels generate far more carbon dioxide than natural gas, and that the United Nations never took Chinese statistics into account – even though it produces 80 percent of solar panels. They also sigh as Massachusetts Gov. Maura Healey announces a state of emergency due to the number of migrants pouring into her state. But instead of blaming the issue on the Biden administration’s porous border or refusal to deport, she chalks it up to the government being too slow to approve work authorization for the migrants. Finally, they end on a lighter note by discussing the promotion from the Subway sandwich chain that will land the winner $50,000 in Subway gift cards in exchange for changing their name to Subway.
Join Jim and Greg as they cheer Iowa becoming the latest state to pass sweeping school choice legislation which gives parents more options on where and how to educate their kids and creates more competition for our schools. They also groan as New York City Mayor Eric Adams complains about the burden placed on his city to deal with the flood of people who entered the nation illegally. The buses from red state governors are a drop in the bucket compared to the numbers of migrants being shuttled all over the nation by the federal government. They also react to Rep. Adam Schiff’s TikTok video complaining about his ouster from the House Intelligence Committee, which he immediately turned into a fundraising pitch just in time for his new campaign for the U.S. Senate. And Jim reacts to the speculation that Aaron Rodgers could be headed to the New York Jets.
