Up Where We Belong. Sharing good news headlines about the Trump Economy, from consumer confidence to manufacturing to job creation. The arrows are all green. Should they prove sustainable, Democrats will face a major uphill battle in 2018. Meanwhile, officials at the DOJ and FBI finally confirm that allegations of Russian "collusion" in the Fusion GPS Trump Dossier have not been verified nor corroborated. In addition, we now learn that the Hillary-funded Fusion GPS entity has been offering payments to journalists, both before and after the 2016 elections. But which journalists? And for what? As the American people continue to lose trust in their Media, these revelations seem sure to add to the erosion. Also, a new study finds that "angry people" have shorter lifespans. Bad news for the Never Trumpers? Plus, we examine the growing trend of young people leaving desk jobs to become organic farmers. Is agriculture becoming "cool" again? With Listener Calls & Music via Joe Cocker & Jennifer Warnes, Giorgia, Dave Alvin, Green Day, Dion & the Belmonts and Kenny Chesney. Sacred Song from Hank Williams.
Rep. Nancy Pelosi's Brave New World. Which appears much the same as the Old World, as it happens. Pelosi enthuses about a new "zero tolerance" policy on sexual harassment, heralding a "generational change" in attitudes -- but quickly carves out an exception for disgraced Democratic "icon" John Conyers, and continues to defend former President Bill Clinton. We admit to being underwhelmed by Pelosi's performance on Meet the Press. Professor Angelo Codevilla describes the harassment issue as a tool for the Ruling Classes to consolidate power, applying P.C. strictures to carefully selected non-establishment targets, while maneuvering to protect their own. Meanwhile, we surf through a long list of the accused, and offer musical tribute to departed CBS anchor Good Time Charlie Rose. Plus, we consider the recent attack on Sen. Rand Paul, who suffered six broken ribs at the hands of his socialist neighbor. Why does Kasie Hunt, of MSNBC, describe this assault as one of her "favorite stories"? With Listener Calls & Music via Metallica, the Chantays, Dwight Yoakam, the Smithereens and E.L.O.
Opening Monologue. The Establishment Comedy. Or is it more of a farce? Approaching the events of the day through the lens of detachment, and perhaps some humor at the expense of our Beltway Betters. We consider the hapless ineptitude of our Ruling Classes as they bitterly cling to power. We marvel at how seriously they take themselves as they move from one blunder to the next. Callers debate our examination of John McCain's mysteriously migrating orthopedic prosthetic, and offer a range of suitable nicknames for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Turtle? Tortoise? Possum? Plus, our conversations involving Johnny Ace, Dan Bongino & the Lolita Express, Term Limits & Icebergs, Medieval Architecture and the anatomical features of sharks. With Music from Heart, Waylon Jennings, Parry Gripp, Brooks & Dunn, ABBA and Chris Isaak.
Matt Dunn guest host for Dan Caplis. John McCain's Boot Scootin' Boogie. Switching feet on his orthopedic prosthetic? Studies in the "Letting Lies Linger" technique of Modern Propaganda. Establishment Smear Machine fighting for survival, clinging to power, and lying to do so. Belatedly, FBI & DOJ officials admit they've been unable to "verify or corroborate" the dirty trick Trump Dossier. The WSJ's Kimberly Strassel weighs in. Plus, New Bombshell Revelation: According to its own bank records, the weasels at Fusion GPS "paid journalists" to write stories. But now we need the names. Meanwhile, as Newt Gingrich calls for a congressional Uranium One investigation, Hillary Clinton hits the panic button. Also, our notes from Jacques Barzun's treatise on the decline of Western Civilization, From Dawn to Decadence. With Listener Calls & Music via Sheryl Crow and Portugal The Man.
Matt Dunn guest host of The Dan Caplis Show. Embattled Judge Roy Moore opens up polling lead in Alabama. President Trump semi-endorses senate candidate Moore, blasts Democrat opponent Doug Jones. Media goes nuts. Commentator Tammy Bruce calls for "consistency" from Mitch McConnell, who seems to have weird blind spot for the disgraced Al Franken. Republican Establishment remains oddly determined to alienate its own voters. Callers debate ongoing spate of sexual harassment allegations engulfing elite circles. With Music from Sia and Rage Against the Machine.
Matt Dunn fills in for Dan Caplis Show on Black Friday. Modern Day Puritans, alive and well on the Left. Joy Behar of "The View" won't have dinner with Trump Supporters. Multiple Hollywood & Media & Political personages still biting the dust. Democrat Al Franken reportedly "reflecting" over his groping habit, as two new Franken accusers come forward. The New York Times struggles with the fate of its own serial harasser Glenn Thrush, and super-creep Charlie Rose of CBS goes down the tubes. Good Time Charlie's Got the Blues. Meanwhile, CNN's Dylan Byers laments this sudden loss of talent. But quickly deletes and apologizes, after trending on Twitter. Black Friday Vignettes and Thanksgiving Politics. Plus, unveiling the first Christmas Song of 2017 on 710KNUS. With Music from Dwight Yoakam and George Strait.
Partisan hack attorney Gloria Allred takes a major pratfall on the Roy Moore equation. Why won't Allred immediately release the 1977 high school "yearbook" to independent investigators? Is Allred having an honesty issue in front of all the cameras? We consider the nuances around the suspicious yearbook signature -- and its mysterious "D.A." appellation -- and conclude that grounds for skepticism towards Moore's accusers are growing. Meanwhile, an embittered Hillary Clinton continues to question the "legitimacy" of the 2016 election, raising her hypocrisy levels unto new realms of glory. Fending off potential DOJ investigations into Uranium One, Hillary now raises the specter of "dictatorship" in America. Does this individual still possess any kind of a soul? Plus, we listen to Juanita Broaddrick describe the belated "epiphany" from Democrats following their decades of sanctioning Clintonian pathologies. Also, we commemorate the opening of the "Johnny Cash Trail" near Folsom Prison in California. Callers defend Roy Moore en masse. With Music from Eros Ramazzotti, Nicole Sherzinger, Hercules & Love Affair. Sacred Song from Johnny Cash.
Blue Collar wages have "begun to rocket" across America. The Trump Economy gathers impressive momentum, exports are surging, and Conrad Black rates Trump as already "the most effective U.S. president since Ronald Reagan." New polling data has Trump's popularity climbing to 46%, possibly confirming the suspected impotence of our Hostile Media. We are coming to sense that, in spite of it all, the good news is starting to sink in with the American people. Plus, we visit with Paterfamilias John Andrews about prospects for GOP tax reform, the Colorado governor's race, and the intertwined fates of Al Franken and Roy Moore. How sincere are Democratic revisionists regarding new approaches to Clinton misogyny? A form of cheap grace? Also, we consider the politics of Thanksgiving and the inevitable Leftist demagogueries on taxes. Callers defend Roy Moore and we offer Music from Joe Walsh, Heart, Helene Fischer and Eric Church.
Opening Monologue. Senator Al Franken, self-described "Giant of the Senate," is accused of sexual harassment by former model Leeann Tweeden. Establishment machinations against Roy Moore are temporarily derailed by the news, which happens to include photographic evidence. Some say Franken has apologized, but we're not so sure. We listen to an emotional interview from Ms. Tweeden and sample some speeches from Franken on the floor of the Senate. Should he resign? How sound are the predictable Establishment defenses of Franken? Meanwhile, we contemplate the heavy duty "Bad Karma" of the Left, which seems intent on stepping on every rake in sight. Unintended consequences of the forces of hate? How many more shall thus bite the dust? Also, we offer an NFL kneeling update with the hot new Neal McCoy song "Take a Knee My Ass." Plus, our tribute to the departed country singer Mel Tillis. With Listener Calls & Music via Green Day, John Lennon, Queen, Juice Newton, Neal McCoy and Mel Tillis.
The Perfect Hoax. We examine new revelations from the Air Force Academy that their recent "racist graffiti" incident was all a hoax -- and was used by the Media to unfairly bash President Trump. Will CNN and the Washington Post soon apologize? We review a long list of Media Hoaxes on racial themes and offer insight into this particularly insidious form of modern propaganda. We suggest skepticism is more than warranted moving forward. But will the "Big Lie" prevail anyhow? Meanwhile, Donna Brazile keeps pushing against the Hillary Clinton "cult" of joylessnes, and Cynthia Coffman enters the race for Colorado Governor. Also, our notes on Harvey Weinstein's twisted "army of spies" and the bizarre "middle dot" language revolution proposed by French feminists. Plus, our take on the formidable 840-horsepower Dodge Demon muscle car. Should it be banned? With Listener Calls & Music via Little Big Town, Alice In Chains, Junior Brown and Louane. Sacred Song from George Jones.
