Join Jim and Greg for a very lively Friday podcast! First, they cheer the Supreme Court for telling the 9th Circuit to reconsider a case where churches face tighter restrictions than non-religious gatherings. They also hammer Los Angeles and California as their COVID restrictions even forbid “unnecessary walking” and effectively make people prisoners in their own homes. And they react to Joe Biden’s confusing comments about what would happen if he and Kamala Harris ever have a major disagreement over principle, and somehow that leads to a really fun pop culture tangent.
Back to the normal format today, but plenty of good Friday fodder awaits. Today, Jim and Greg are happy to see better-than-expected numbers in the October jobs report. They shred Elizabeth Warren’s ludicrous plan to pay for government-run health care, explaining why it’s a fiscal pipe dream and a health policy nightmare for everyone. And they roll their eyes as Katie Hill and all of her liberal and media apologists ignore the actual reason she is resigning from Congress today.
Start the week off right by joining us for the Three Martini Lunch. Today, Jim and Greg celebrate the U.S. forces who tracked down and eliminated Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the ISIS leader responsible for some of the most heinous and grisly murders, rapes, and oppression we’ve seen in recent times. They also pile on the Washington Post for offering a much softer headline and obituary for al-Baghdadi than was appropriate. Jim and Greg are pleasantly surprised to see liberal political street fighter Rahm Emanuel begging Democrats to stop pushing Medicare for All. And as California Democratic Rep. Katie Hill announces her upcoming resignation, they explain why this story is disturbing on virtually every level.
Liberty Counsel Chairman Mathew Staver is reacting to the forced resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, saying Sessions has many fine qualities but made a terrible mistake that cast a shadow over everything else he did at the Justice Department.
“Jeff Sessions is a good man. He’s an honorable person and he’s done very well on religious freedom. However, anybody who serves under the president needs to have the president’s blessing and President Trump, for good reason, got concerned with Jeff Sessions, even though he was loyal during the campaign and he’s been faithful during his term.
“However, if you go back to this whole Russia investigation, it was Jeff Sessions who actually pushed the first domino by recusing himself. He didn’t need to recuse himself,” said Staver.
Listen to the full interview as Staver explains why he does not believe Sessions needed to recuse himself and names one person he strongly hopes is not in line to be the next attorney general.
