A conversation with Charles Johnson, founder and editor of GotNews.com. Does Judge Gonzalo Curiel have any conflicts of interest as he presides over the politically charged Trump University case? Did left-wing Mayor Sam Liccardo of San Jose, California properly handle the riot scenarios which followed Friday's huge Trump Rally? Might America now be in the process of fracturing along fault lines of race and ethnicity? Could the politically correct principles of "diversity" be inadvertently (or advertently) promoting this potential? Could such an America survive another large-scale economic dislocation? Does the political success of Donald Trump herald an end to the "era of globalization" in world politics? Is "Beltway Conservatism" becoming irrelevant in America's current political environment? With summer music and listener calls.

Trump supporters are besieged by violent protesters after a large Trump Rally in San Jose, California. We scrutinize media portrayals of the event. Does Andrea Mitchell of NBC seem to suggest that a young pro-Trump woman actually deserved to be pelted with eggs by an angry leftist mob? Do leftists, at this point, believe more in "free speech" or in the active suppression of speech? Noting leftist agitators on the scene burning the American flag while flying the flag of another nation, we discuss the Late Great Golden State. Meanwhile, Trump offers blunt criticisms of certain members of the media and expresses doubts about the impartiality of Judge Gonzalo Curiel. Justified? Also, President Obama stutters through a strange attack on Trump, we review the odd 2011 audio of Hillary Clinton "cackling" over the death of Muammar Gaddafi, and we puzzle over Bill Kristol's production of the unknown "David French" as a potential independent third party presidential candidate. With music and listener calls.
