Join Jim and Greg as they serve up three bad martinis. First, they wince as Chinese dictator Xi Xinping visits Moscow to strengthen ties with Vladimir Putin. They also react to Mexico’s socialist president rejecting any blame for the fentanyl epidemic in the U.S. Instead, he blames American parents for not hugging their children enough. Finally, they assess the legal drama swirling around former President Trump, the far left Manhattan district attorney who may be poised to indict Trump, and how legal experts throughout the political spectrum believe the forthcoming charges are very dubious.
Join Jim and Greg as they welcome a shred of hope that Chicago voters might elect a new mayor who seems much more serious about crime – but they are not holding their breath. They also break down some of the biggest moments from President Biden’s State of the Union on Tuesday – from bipartisan cowardice on entitlements, to Biden’s delusions on energy, and more. Finally, they break down Biden’s stunningly brief and vague comments on China and his bizarre, angry challenge to name one world leader who would want to trade places with Xi Xinping. Short answer? A lot of them.

The Chinese government is reporting more than 1,000 deaths related to coronavirus but China expert Gordon Chang says it’s clear from how officials are reacting with mass quarantines and other tactics that the problem is much worse than reported.
“The severity is much greater than China is officially reporting,” said Chang. “There are stories that Wuhan, the epicenter of the virus, is cremating hundreds of bodies a day. That doesn’t fit very easily with a death toll of a thousand.”
But why what does China have to gain by lying about the severity? Chang says it’s all about control.
“Xi Xinping, the Chinese ruler, is much more interested in controlling the narrative than he is in ending the epidemic,” said Chang.
Chang discusses the impact that the mass quarantines are having on the Chinese economy and what the U.S. posture should be as this plays out.
In addition, Chang reacts to the news that the U.S. is indicting four Chinese military officials for the massive 2017 Equifax hack that compromised the information of more than 145 million people.
