Backbone Radio's Matt Dunn stops by Chuck & Julie to discuss latest Deep State revelations. FBI informant placed on Trump Campaign? We throw sunlight into the dark corners of this enormous, egregious political scandal. We cover Names, Dates & Places and distinguish Black Hats from White Hats. On the list: STEFAN HALPER, George Papadopoulos, Carter Page, Joseph "Maltese Falcon" Mifsud, Alexander Downer, Robert Mueller, Rod Rosenstein, John Brennan, James Comey, James Clapper, Susan Rice and Samantha Power. Five Eyes in Trouble? US-UK Special Relationship Blown? Seeking Rough Justice for the Six Ways from Sunday Crowd. It's time. But what happens next? [Dunn joins conversation at minute 12:00 in podcast.]
Collapse of the Elite Worldview. Donald Trump humiliated the American Political Establishment -- by merely winning -- and they'll never forgive him for it. A sophisticated Ruling Class might try to learn and grow from the experience, or even attempt a more profound connection with reality. A whole new weltanschauung, per se. But alas, these individuals are not very sophisticated, and thus have determined to scapegoat their victorious opponent and punish America itself for allowing their defeat. That said, they cannot be allowed to destroy the country. So how to deal with present circumstances? Should the "hyper-combative" Trump make efforts to "de-escalate" -- as Conrad Black now suggests? Cut deals? Or is this more of a moment for rough "Donkey Kong" justice? Meanwhile, white hat American hero Admiral Mike Rogers retires from the NSA, now cleared for testimony. We decode David Brooks' discussion of his precious "norms," as the Establishment grudgingly "thinks the unthinkable" about Trump's successes. John Kerry sneaks around to salvage his Iran Deal, and we take another look at recused FISA Judge Rudolph Contreras. The "specific individual" of Nunes' interest? Plus, the Left continues its self-unmasking as a giddy Michael Moore celebrates the 200th Birthday of Karl Marx. We help Comrade Moore celebrate by playing the "National Anthem of the USSR." With Listener Calls & Music via Trace Adkins, Daft Punk, Julian Casablancas, Louane and the Alexandrov Ensemble. Sacred Song from Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash.
"C'Mon Man!" Federal Judge T.S. Ellis accuses Team Mueller of lying and seeking "unfettered power" in its refusal to reveal its "scope memo." We explore the mystical, non-verbal, sub rosa "interactions" underlying the Mueller Witch Hunt. Could Mueller's Title-1 surveillance be rooted in the original Carter Page FISA Court fraud? Why is the unelected Rod Rosenstein claiming he's being "extorted" by his lawful congressional overseers? What are Rosenstein's Big Secrets? Meanwhile, Comey gets tangled in yet another contradiction, this time persuant to the case of Michael Flynn. We predict Flynn will soon be getting his house back -- and then some. The irrespressible President Trump responds to the "Witch Hunt" by declaring: "We're all fighting battles, but I love to fight these battles." A natural-born fighter, the exact right attitude towards the current injustice. Also, as Devin Nunes makes a move on "contempt" for Jeff Sessions, we puzzle over the AG's taciturn behavior. Running out of patience? Plus, vignettes on T.S. Eliot, Richard Wagner and The Big Lebowski. Heads Up on a new "Red Flag gun confiscation bill" passed by the Colorado House. With Listener Calls & Music via Pistol Pete, Wilson Pickett, the Hollies, ELO and the Rolling Stones.
Opening Monologue. Justice phase for Deep State. Tension builds, uncertainty lingers. Thunder, Feel the Thunder. Team Mueller meets sharp resistance from two separate Judges. McCain plans his funeral, still unable to transcend petty politics. Democrats now doubting Blue Wave Hypothesis, shying away from impeachment talk. Michael Avenatti is the new Schiff, another unwholesome face on the Left. John Kerry flaunts Logan Act with shadow diplomacy. Meanwhile, Trump popularity heads due north and Rudy Giuliani enters the scene. More great economic numbers. Astonishing progress in North Korea. Kanye West continues his MAGA tour, as black male support for Trump doubles in one week. Nunes threatens Sessions with "contempt." Inspector General Horowitz next report due May 18th, by happenstance 38th anniversary of Mount St. Helens volcano eruption. With Listener Calls & Music via Imagine Dragons, Eric Church, Emiliana Torrini and Louane.
