Does the Secret Service need new management? We review disturbing patterns of incompetence in White House security and consider the potential for catastrophic consequences. Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino describes an agency that is "completely broken" and has "failed the President of the United States." Meanwhile, disgraced Denver Secret Service agent Kerry O'Grady has earned a permanent demotion for having stated she "wouldn't take a bullet" for President Trump. Is today's hateful media climate contributing to the high-stakes risks? Also, sore loser Hillary Clinton says she is "ready to come out of the woods" -- and we suspect "the woods" might be ready as well. Plus, we ponder the ongoing Obamacare overhaul as the GOP Establishment appears to be "dragging its feet" around a genuine repeal. In addition, we visit with Steve Weil, owner of Denver-based Rockmount Ranch Wear, over concerns that the multinational Coach, Inc. has plagiarized Rockmount's "Atomic Cowboy" shirt design. With Listener Calls & Music via Chuck Berry, Social Distortion, Waylon Jennings and The Beatles -- and sundry vignettes on Beethoven, Napoleon and parliamentarians.
