Three Martini Lunch:

Three Martini Lunch is a funny, edgy and fast-paced podcast of the day’s major political stories, hosted by Radio America’s Greg Corombos and Jim Geraghty of National Review. During this daily snapshot each day of the news, listeners are treated to a Good, Bad and Crazy Martini, giving fans a lunch time treat without the late afternoon hangover.

Tune in for what some call “the best 20 minutes of the day.”

McConnell's Last Year as Leader, Newsom's Shady Favoritism, Trump vs. Biden at the Border

Join Jim and Greg for three important martinis ranging from the U.S. Senate to the border to cronyism in politics.

First, they react to Sen. Mitch McConnell announcing this will be his final year as Senate Republican leader. They break down McConnell's record on reshaping the U.S. Supreme Court by pushing through the nominations of Justices Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Coney Barrett. They dig into his willingness to be the villain to protect other GOP members, but also the frustration conservatives have with his failure to fight harder for less spending and not being more aggressive on certain policy goals. And, of course, they preview the fight to replace McConnell as leader.

Then they document the shady exemption to California's new law raising the minimum wage for fast food workers from $16 to $20 per hour for establishments that bake their own bread on site and sell it individually. This seems to be a specific carve out for Gov. Gavin Newsom's friend and donor who owns a bunch of Panera franchises in the state.

Finally, they assess today's dueling border visits from Biden and Trump, what we can glean by the different areas of the border they are visiting, and why Biden's eagerness to reverse anything Trump did in office is coming back to bite him hardest at the border.

NATO Allies Reject Troops in Ukraine, Border Crisis & A Small Town, Biden vs. Reality on Ceasefire

Join Jim and Greg for three big new martinis!

First, they slam French President Emmanuel Macron for publicly refusing to rule out sending troops to Ukraine. But they were glad to see the U.S., Great Britain, and Germany immediately shoot down the notion that such a move was on the table..

Then, they dig into a Washington Free Beacon story about how the border crisis is overwhelming a small, fairly progressive community in Whitewater, Wisconsin. The city is scrambling for money after services for migrants put it in a $400,000 budget bind. Meanwhile, drug activity and STD's are on the rise. And this is happening in plenty of other communities in this country.

Finally, they scratch their heads as President Biden told reporters that he thinks an Israel-Hamas ceasefire will be in place this weekend. Yet the Israelis, Hamas, and Qatar all publicly say there hasn't been much progress at all on any of the major issues that need to be addressed before a pause in fighting can happen,

NYC Mayor Wants Criminal Aliens Deported, No Blame for Sec. Austin Going AWOL, Hijackings & Protests

The good martini is back today, so please join Jim and Greg for that plus the usual bad and crazy ones.

First, they welcome New York City Mayor Eric Adams embracing a blatantly obvious reality and urging the New York City Council to amend its sanctuary city law and allow for illegal aliens who commit felonies to be handed over to ICE and deported.

They also sigh as a Pentagon report examining the failure of Defense Sec. Lloyd Austin and his staff to inform President Biden and many other relevant personnel for several days when Austin was in the hospital last month determines there should be no reprimands given out because no one intended any harm.

Finally, in the wake of the U.S. Air Force service member who fatally set himself on fire to protest U.S. and Israeli policy towards Gaza, they marvel at the viral online lament that people aren't allowed to protest, march, or go on hunger strikes (all untrue) which then adds hijacking rioting, and throwing Molotov cocktails to the same list.

Policy Failures That Facilitated Murder, Ronna's Awkward RNC Exit, Why Haley Would Be a 3rd Party Flop

There are no good martinis to start the week but Jim and Greg are ready to dig into one horrifically bad martini and two crazy ones.

First, they're incensed over the death of nursing student Laken Riley, allegedly at the hands of a Venezuelan man who entered the U.S. illegally. In addition, the suspect was arrested for assaulting a child in New York City but officials there released him before Immigration and Customs Enforcement could take him into custody. In addition, rather than focus on either of those policy problems, the mainstream media quickly decided that the real story here is that women face risks when jogging alone and, of course, that Republicans are pouncing on this terrible news.

Next, they get a kick out of RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel announcing she will resign in the next couple of weeks and trying to make us believe that major party chairs regularly step down in the middle of a presidential election year.

Finally, there is increasing buzz about former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley running as a third party candidate. But, as Jim points out, her current campaign creates a very big problem if Haley wants to switch gears for November.

NY Court Blocks Non-Citizen Voting, CBS vs. Herridge, McCaskill Slams NYT for Fact-Checking Biden

Join Jim and Greg as they return to their usual good, bad, and crazy martinis and head into the weekend!

First, they welcome the decision from a New York appeals court that New York City's efforts to allow 800,000 non-citizens to vote in local elections is unconstitutional. Limiting voting to citizens is a no-brainer but Jim fears this issue will eventually wind up at the U.S. Supreme Court.

Next, they react to the news that CBS not only laid off stellar reporter Catherine Herridge but seized her files, computers, and records, including information about confidential sources. Even SAG-AFTRA is denouncing CBS in very strong terms. Just how big of a threat is this to the freedom of the press?

Finally, they shake their heads as former Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill (who is now an MSNBC contributor) blasts the New York Times for fact-checking President Biden because she thinks they aren't aggressive enough in calling out Donald Trump's falsehoods. This feeds into the maddening view of some on the left who genuinely see the role the media as doing everything it can to help Biden and defeat Trump.
