Join Jim and Greg as they focus on the mayhem continuing in the streets of American cities. They’re very bullish on the idea of Indiana Rep. Jim Banks to end unemployment benefits for anyone convicted of committing a federal offense at a protest. They also scratch their heads as Joe Biden and other Democrats condemn President Trump for wanting to use federal power to stop the rioting while also trying to blame Trump for the destruction in the first place. And they examine the pathetic case of Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, who grovels to the radicals more and more as they treat him worse and worse.
Chad Benson is in for Jim Geraghty. Today, Chad and Greg discuss the political insanity playing out in Portland, as the media and the mayor paint the violent mob as the victims now that federal forces are there to protect government property. However, Chad wonders whether Portland should be left to suffer the results of its own radicalism. They also dig into the congressional fight over unemployment benefits and wonder if another widespread COVID shutdown is on the way. And they have fun with the news that the “Washington Football Team” will not have a mascot for the 2020 NFL season.
Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review is in for Jim today. Join her and Greg as they discuss Planned Parenthood finally admitting that founder Margaret Sanger was an advocate of eugenics and that it is taking her name off its Manhattan facility. They also unload on Portland “leaders” for allowing seven weeks of violence and property destruction to go on without consequences but denouncing the federal government for stepping in to deal with the problem. And Alexandra wonders why Joe Biden is trying to win over religious conservatives after endorsing taxpayer-funded abortions and suing nuns over birth control coverage.
