The Trump Economy Moves Upward. A new coal mine opens near Pittsburgh, hinting at a long-overdue revival in the energy sector. We take a tour through coal country and remark on the brightening prospects of the formerly neglected American Working Class. Senator Chuck Schumer turns a blind eye, but smarter Democrats sense they're losing support in Middle America. Meanwhile, Never Trumpers Bret Stephens and Jennifer Rubin abandon their 'principles' on Climate Change with awe-inspiring gusto. Also, the pathological CNN continues to wage unsuccessful "war" on President Trump. After firing Kathy Griffin last week, CNN has dismissed the scatological Reza Aslan this week. Who's next? How many more Frankensteins has CNN created with its own propaganda? Vulgarity reigns in the media culture. We compare CNN's wrathful pursuit of President Trump with Captain Ahab of Herman Melville's Moby Dick. Will they ever catch their great white whale? Call Me Ishmael. With Listener Calls & Music via Johnny Cash, Little Big Town, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Elvis Presley.
