How long can they forestall The Reckoning? Paul Sperry sketches the "monumental inflection point" as the MSM shifts from offense to defense on SpyGate. DNI James Clapper says he's scared and stunned by AG Barr's comments on "spying." FBI James Comey claims to be confused and concerned, says it was merely "court-ordered electronic surveillance." But didn't Clapper "deny" that ever happened? CIA John Brennan bestirs himself to emit another trademark Trump-bashing thunderclap tweet. Which we set to music. Can the Six Ways From Sunday crowd rescue a desperate MSM? And vice versa? Meanwhile, Devin Nunes drops the "2015" bombshell into the proceedings, while delivering eight criminal referrals to AG Barr. Right on schedule. Kimberly Strassel of the Wall Street Journal summarizes "spying" schematics plus items in the "FBI's timeline that do not add up." Meanwhile, the MSM's favorite creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti finds himself indicted on 36 counts. Straight down the tubes. Also, brief notes on President Trump's proposal to send illegal immigrants to Sanctuary Cities. Why aren't liberals happy about that? Tired of Winning. With Listener Calls & Music via the Glitch Mob, the Alexandrov Ensemble, The Beatles, Sia, George Strait and Eric Clapton. Sacred Song from George Jones. Palm Sunday.

SPYING Is A Big Deal. And yes, Spying Did Occur. So says Attorney General William Barr, who blew away the Beltway during two days of testimony this week. Panic sets in for the Deep State, as official Washington begins to "grasp the magnitude" of what has just transpired. An historic shift in momentum for America's Biggest Political Scandal. We review AG Barr's stated determination to uncover the origins of SpyGate, which he says may involve multiple intelligence agencies. Was all the "spying" adequately predicated? Further, AG Barr describes his puzzlement that Obama's DOJ failed to offer Trump a "defensive briefing" for the alleged Russian infiltration of his campaign. Did the "upper echelons" of the FBI make some bad decisions? The wheels are turning. AG Barr exceeding expectations, and Inspector General Horowitz appears to be concluding his investigation into FISA abuse. MSM having visions of catastrophe, having definitively blown their credibility, wounds salted by losing out to the man they've devoted their lives and sacred honor to overthrowing. Meanwhile, Devin Nunes stays on offense. Might Republicans ultimately find that contagious? Plus, our notes on Red Flag overreach in Colorado. With Listener Calls & Music via Khalid, The Georgia Satellites, Major Lazer and Tove Lo.

Opening Monologues. A Crushing Week for Democrats. The hunters now become the hunted. The "spying" word has been unleashed by Attorney General Barr, much to the chagrin of the MSM. Goldman Sachs says President Trump increasingly likely to win re-election, with approvals now climbing to 53%. We review the stark America First v. America Last contrast shaping up for 2020. Amazingly, the Democratic Party now finds itself on the wrong side of 9/11. In a recent speech, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) minimized the tragic events of 9/11, abridging them as simply "some people did something." Ever since, fellow Democrats have gone out of their way to defend Omar's remarks. It's hands across America for Omar. So does the fuller context offer any consolation for her party? Not hardly. How to explain the metastasizing extremism of the Left? The center is not holding, the falcons have lost sight of the falconer. Also, we congratulate Tiger Woods for winning his fifth Masters Tournament earlier today, as President Trump live-tweeted the final round. Plus, we say Happy 276th Birthday to Thomas Jefferson.

SPECIAL EDITION. Matt Dunn joins Chuck Bonniwell & Julie Hayden to discuss today's thunderous news on SPYGATE. AG William Barr tells Congress he believes there was in fact "spying" on Trump. Further, Barr says he's now investigating the 'origins' of all this spying, which apparently involved multiple intelligence agencies. Also, Barr reveals he is puzzled as to why the Obama DOJ/FBI failed to offer Trump a defensive briefing. Beltway slowly beginning to "grasp the magnitude" of these statements, now realizing they're on the cusp of catastrophe. Very Bad Day for Deep State. Great Day for USA.

Democrats Race to 2020 Oblivion. Unelectable nonentities already squaring off in the surprisingly harsh Democratic Primary. Has the weirdly "affectionate" Joe Biden been knocked out before even announcing? Weak MSM test-driving their "cover up" narratives against AG Barr's handling of the Mueller Report. The irresponsible Adam "Pencilneck" Schiff can't let go of Russia, offers no apologies and claims no regrets for having raised false hopes within his own party. Meanwhile, we consider President Trump's wisely renewed focus on the 'origins' of SpyGate. How did the failed attempted coup get started in the first place? We examine the evolving Svetlana Lokhova story, the Russian academic from Cambridge now speaking out on Fox News. Falsely accused in 2017 of having had an affair with General Michael Flynn in 2014. Another entrapment exercise from spook Stefan Halper? Why was David Ignatius of the Washington Post involved? What does CIA Brennan know? Speaking of Brennan, we consider the commentary of former CIA man John Kiriakou, who says his former boss was "in over his head intellectually" as CIA director. Just not a very bright guy. Plus, we review DNI James Clapper's recent book, with its cynical exploitation of Trump's obvious joke about Russia hacking Hillary's emails. We are amused by Clapper's habit of blaming his own "tired" appearance on Donald Trump. Also, CNN's Christiane Amanpour reveals her curious antipathy towards free speech in America. Additional vignettes on fatherhood, piano recitals and the enduring omnipresence of Disney's wonderful Frozen franchise. Elsa, Anna, Hans and Olaf -- on ice. Constant companions.

The Devin Nunes Criminal Referrals. Eight of them. Launching this week. Our commentary and analysis of the full morning conversation between Devin Nunes and Maria Bartiromo, detailing the nature of the referrals and the "unbelievable end" of the Russian Hoax. Nunes speaks highly of AG William Barr, believing America now has "a real Attorney General" to properly manage his referrals. The categories of criminality include conspiracy, leaking and lying to Congress -- and could involve up to "two dozen people." Is CIA Brennan on the list? Might not be sleeping so well. With millions of informed Americans clamoring for SpyGate accountability, we suggest this Deep State scandal is far too large to be swept under the rug. If such were to happen, through additional bureaucratic subterfuge, the rule of law in America might never fully recover. Thankfully, the heroic work of Nunes provides genuine cause for hope. So much depends upon AG Barr. We'll find out soon enough if he's man or mouse. Justice itself hangs in the balance. With Listener Calls & Music via Dwight Yoakam, Olivia Newton-John and Ornella Vanoni.

Opening Monologues. The Excruciating MSM Holding Pattern. Downbeat Democrats pinned between the desolate Mueller Summary and the pending release of the fuller Mueller Report. At the moment, they have nothing to go on. Thus they watch helplessly as they lose control of The Narrative and further brace themselves for Devin Nunes' upcoming criminal referrals. Meanwhile, Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen announces her departure from the Department of Homeland Security. President Trump, planning a "tougher direction" on border security, asked today for Nielsen's resignation. We sample Trump's commentary on border issues from his Friday speech in Las Vegas, after having visited the wall near Calexico, California. Lieutenant General Todd Semonite, chief of the Army Corps of Engineers, describes progress and plans for the construction of 450 miles of new border wall by December 2020. We outline Trump's sterling maneuver to install 750 more border agents at ports of entry, a mechanism for snarling border traffic at the direct expense of Mexico. De facto border closure? The Great Avocado Crisis. Plus, we review nice new numbers from the growing MAGA Economy as Trump hits 51% approvals. Lowest unemployment in 50 years and continued solid wage growth for the Middle Class. Also, media scrambles to defend the "oddly affectionate" Joe Biden, whose potential presidential campaign is already on the rocks. In addition, our updates on the improving health of Mick Jagger, successful surgery in New York City. American Rock 'n Roll. The Rubberband Man. Tumbling Dice.

A Time For Vengeance. The Mandate for Deep State Scalps per the Biggest Political Scandal in American History. President Trump is now questioning the origins of SpyGate, wondering how the "phony and fraudulent investigation" actually began. We sense the implicit determination herein, and are expecting important lessons to be learned for "future generations." Reporter John Solomon is ready to go to the top, asking "what did Barack Obama know" about his administration's seditious conspiracy scheme against Trump. Judge Jeanine Pirro wants answers, and wants to see people behind bars. We review the supremely devious "frame" tactics of the Six Ways From Sunday crowd. But let's not overlook their paper trails -- and let's remember how incompetent these people are. We're getting perilously close to CIA John Brennan, who now says he's received "bad information" in the Mueller Denouement. Might Devin Nunes have a criminal referral ready to go on Brennan? Meanwhile, British Spy Christopher Steele literally runs away from reporters this week in the UK. Hey, we've got a runner! Plus, we sample President Trump's statements about closing the border and cutting off aid to Central America. Also, Lucy Flores, a young Democrat politician from Nevada, offers a vivid narrative on the incredible creepiness of Joe Biden. Woah -- can Biden survive this one? Coda: Quite possibly Earth's finest composition. Brandy. With Listener Calls & Music via Looking Glass, Todd Rundgren, the Alexandrov Ensemble and The Beatles. Sacred Song from the Stanley Brothers. Precious Memories.
