Gear-Shifting Good News at the DOJ. The Arrival of Matthew Whitaker, Acting Attorney General. After spending two years hiding under his desk, Jeff Sessions has finally resigned as AG and headed home to Alabama. No stealth, no apparent redeeming qualities. But who is Matthew Whitaker? And why are Democrats going nuts over his appointment? We sketch the promising background of the 6'6" former Iowa footballer and outline the critical importance of this position moving forward into the storms awaiting President Trump in January 2019. Schumer, Pelosi and panicked Never Trumpers are demanding Whitaker's "immediate recusal" from the Mueller investigation. Full-throttle MSM propaganda already underway to undermine. But Whitaker says he won't be recusing himself. Why is Bill Kristol acting so spooked? Is the Mueller Cover-Up of Uniparty SpyGate malfeasance suddenly at risk? Could Whitaker start allowing IG Horowitz to actually do his job? DAG Rod Rosenstein signals his approval of the new AAG, and President Trump defends Whitaker on Twitter. We sound the alarms of urgency over "declassification" as we suggest new "sunlight" might soon be headed into the Deep State. Also, our reflections on the mysterious, hopeful and enduring pushback of DOJ White Hats. To Be Continued. Plus, Elvis Presley is posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. With Listener Calls & Music via The Beatles and Sturgill Simpson. Sacred Song from Elvis Presley.
Enough of the Timid Contrasts. Colorado Republican Leaders need to start leading on the issues that motivate Republican Voters. It would be helpful if the GOP Establishment could understand that Donald Trump SAVED the Republican Party back in 2016 -- saved it from the losing ways of the Bushes, Romney, McCain and Paul Ryan -- while teaching conservatives how to fight back. If key Republicans and their donors continue to overlook this lesson in reality, they do so at their own peril. Meanwhile, CNN's boorish Jim Acosta finally gets his "hard pass" pulled to White House press conferences. Deranged Antifa Democrats attempt a home invasion of Fox News' Tucker Carlson. Still more Leftist political violence. Didn't Hillary promise they'd start being more "civil"? Conrad Black writes that "Trump is blessed with his enemies." Preliminary notes on the resignation of AG Jeff Sessions and the arrival of AAG Matthew Whitaker. Also, we discuss the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. French Prime Minister Macron blames "nationalism" as the cause of that Unecessary War, but we prefer to blame the globalist "entangling alliances" of the era which managed to set Europe on fire. Plus, we celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Beatles White Album. With Listener Calls & Music via the Georgia Satellites, The Beatles and Louane.
Opening Monologues. The Californication of Colorado. Solid election results nationally, as the Trump GOP was able to overcome history to thwart a Blue Wave. Impressive gains in the U.S. Senate. But tough times indeed for Republicans in Blue State Colorado. We offer our Preliminary GOP Autopsy for Colorado 2018. Mild-mannered, Bush-like campaigns in the Trump Era. It must be said: The low energy, low purpose, low connection CO GOP simply could not have done worse, even if they tried. But will they learn the right lessons from this debacle? We criticize state leaders for continually distancing themselves from President Trump and the motivating MAGA agenda. Nationally, we observe the Republicans who did well tended to seek the "warm embrace" from Trump. Rough justice arrives for the defeated Rep. Mike Coffman, who earned a dismissive comment from Trump: "Too bad Mike!" We bestow Darwin Awards upon various Never Trumpers, whose wayward political instincts have helped remove them from the political gene pool. Meanwhile, Democrats attempt to steal elections in Florida, Georgia and Arizona. As philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer once said, gotta keep on fighting. Eternal Vigilance. With Listener Calls & Music via Red Hot Chili Peppers, Heart and Morrissey.
Bad Karma for Saturday Night Live Democrats. Leftist SNL star Alec Baldwin gets arrested defending the sovereignty of his Manhattan parking space. SNL funnyman Pete Davidson mocks the eyepatch of Republican Dan Crenshaw, a former Navy SEAL who lost an eye in combat.

George Papadopoulos still on the SpyGate warpath, exposing Deep State perpetrators. Was there a FISA on Papadopoulos? Meanwhile, President Trump shines in defending America against a potential Migrant Caravan Invasion. We marvel at the sight of the U.S. Military defending our own American Border. Novel concept! CNN refuses to run GOP advertisement on the Caravan. Trump proposes ending Birthright Citizenship. It's all hands on deck two days before the elections. Hard-working Trump holding daily double rallies, today in Macon, Georgia and Chattanooga, Tennessee. Which way will the close races break? Trump wins if there's No Blue Wave.

A portly Barbra Streisand renews threats to leave America, should there be No Blue Wave. Blames Trump for her pancake habit. On our end, The Waiting Is the Hardest Part. MSNBC's Katy Tur confuses Montana and North Dakota. CNN's Don Lemon says we should not be demonizing racial groups, but adds that "white men" are the "biggest terror threat in this country." Afterwards, CNN declined comment. Meanwhile, another great jobs report lands in our thriving MAGA Economy. We review the impressive new numbers. President Trump hits 51% approvals. Former President Obama tries to take credit for today's economy, draws a puny crowd to a Democratic rally in Gary, Indana. Remember the old Obama days when the "weather" was always conspiring to thwart job creation? Light drizzles even? Also, our conversation with Paterfamilias John Andrews about the Tuesday Midterms. Feeling good nationally, guarded in Colorado. Holding the House. With Listener Calls & Music via Tom Petty, Bethany Cosentino, Weezer, Creed, Randy Rhoads and Ozzy Osbourne.

The American Military defends our own American Border. Meanwhile, bad karma for SNL and the Democrats. Alec Baldwin gets arrested for sucker punching someone over a "parking spot" in Manhattan. Baldwin defending the borders of his own parking space? Also, SNL's funnyman Pete Davidson mocks the eyepatch of Republican candidate Dan Crenshaw. Quite the spectacle, Democrats laughing at a former U.S. Navy SEAL who lost his eye in combat. What will they think of next? With Music via Lee Greenwood, Guns N' Roses, the Rolling Stones, Muse, Glenn Miller and Sigrid.
President Trump stands up to the Migrant Caravan Invasion. Calls in the U.S. Military to protect American Sovereignty. Let's Get That Wall Built. We sample Rep. John Ratcliffe's interview with Maria Bartiromo, remarks on the Democrats' passion for Open Borders and their desire to abolish ICE. According to Ratcliffe, this kind of "stupid" cannot be fixed, but needs to be "voted out of office." Meanwhile, we describe the "five-spiral crash" of Michael Avenatti, the Creepy Porn Lawyer. Megyn Kelly gets fired from NBC, and Fox News won't be taking her back. Seeya Later Alligator. Never Trumper Max Boot gets a "booty call" from Stormy Daniels. Also, in Brazil, the nationalist and anti-communist Jair Bolsonaro wins the presidential election. A good omen for beleaguered Brazilians. We offer Deep State updates as DAG Rod Rosenstein weasels past the Midterms. Not good! But George & Simona Papadopoulos are fighting hard against SpyGate, giving Mueller some major headaches. Will Papadopoulos vacate his guilty plea? We sure hope so. Coda: Dinesh D'Souza compares Trump to Lincoln in a pre-Civil War America. Corrupt Democrats never change. Ominous but accurate.

The Strange Case of Cesar Sayoc. Wannabe Pipe Bomber. Too Perfect to Be True? We express our measured skepticism of the entire scenario. Notes on Sayoc's perfect timing before the election and his perfectly creepy white van with the perfectly pro-Trump stickers displayed all over the windows. The perfect MSM pre-election distraction event? When the corrupt Deep State is hanging by a thread? Yes folks -- something's fishy here. Meanwhile, columnist Michael Goodwin of the New York Post argues that neither of this week's attacks will affect the Midterms. We tend to agree. Plus, we listen to President Trump address the Migrant Caravan Invasion during yesterday's massive rally in Illinois. Time to "turn around, you're not coming in" says Trump. With Listener Calls & Music via Major Lazer, Tove Lo, Toofan, Astrid S and Louane.
Opening Monologues. Sketching the lay of the land NINE DAYS ahead of crucial Midterm Elections. A week of major narrative upheaval in America's terrible struggle for power.

We offer preliminary suspicions on the strange case of Cesar Sayoc, the wannabe pipe bomber who targeted Democrats. A little "too perfect" a scenario here? Over-the-top Democrats blame Trump, of course, while Trump calls for national unity. Stalled progress on Deep State exposure, but clear signs of ongoing Republican Momentum. The Left is nervous. Political Establishment pulling out all the stops to stay in power. No Blue Wave. With Listener Calls & Music via George Strait, Aine, Sia and Giorgia.
