The Chastened Establishment. The NYT's David Brooks offers a forlorn plea to keep "chastened members of establishments" in power in America. Brooks helpfully points out that some Beltway think tanks have been acknowledging "past mistakes" and are even making amends by hosting conferences about the plight of the "working class." Therefore, says Brooks, people like Brooks himself deserve to be kept in power. But for our part, we respond with a big "No Thanks" to all that. Meanwhile, we listen to a high octane Joe diGenova go full scorched earth against incompetent Republicans who have botched their congressional oversight duties. Will the SpyGaters skate? Goodlatte and Gowdy are embarassments, says diGenova, who goes on to describe the importance of Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker. We outline the latest round of attacks on Whitaker, along with our hopes that he can withstand the inevitable Deep State storm. Plus, the unpopular John Kasich threatens to run in 2020. The best they've got? Seeking "peace of mind" in the ongoing human comedy. Coda: Dan Bongino talks about "suffering" in politics. With Listener Calls & Music via Boston and Sigrid. Sacred Song from the Stanley Brothers and Doc Watson.
The Tyranny of the Unelected. Drawing necessary distinctions between illegitimate unelected power and legitimate elected power in America. The Founders would be stunned by the spectacle of unelected bureaucrats continually telling our elected American President to "shut up." We review an outstanding column by John Nolte describing this malignant conceit, which includes the sad example of Chief Justice John Roberts. Meanwhile, discredited Neoconservative Bill Kristol makes yet another call for "regime change" -- this time directed at China and Saudi Arabia. We recall Kristol's last series of calls for regime change, which included Saddam Hussein's Iraq, and which managed to effectively destroy the Republican Party. That is, until Donald Trump showed up to save it. One of the supreme ironies of our time, indeed, involves the way these Never Trumpers, who ruined the GOP, have been unable to forgive Trump for his sensational GOP rescue operation. Plus, additional conversation about the U.S.-Mexico border closure at San Ysidro. Also, manly vignettes about driving a Minivan around town with small children on board. Additional discussion on Backbone Bumper Music and the subtle artistries of talk radio. Globalist Music -- Nationalist Content. With Listener Calls & Music via Weezer, Bethany Consentino, George Harrison, Fitz & The Tantrums and Dwight Yoakam.
Opening Monologues. Repelling the Migrant Caravan Invasion. Kudos to President Trump for keeping his word and closing the United States Border between San Diego and Tijuana, Mexico. After some hundreds in the "caravan" horde attempted to storm the American Border, throwing "projectiles" at members of the border patrol, Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen announced the immediate closure of the San Ysidro crossing. Didn't they listen to what the man said? We review the inevitable political implications and outline our expectations for MSM portrayals of migrant "victimhood." Moving forward, if we are to sustain a country and a civilization, we must learn to overcome such propaganda. Meanwhile, the French government cracks down on the Gilets Jaunes "fuel tax" protesters in Paris. Tear gas and water cannons. Will the unpopular Macron be forced to reconsider his climate change crusade? Also, the Meddling British are said to be "horrified" at the prospect of "declassifying" documents pertaining to SpyGate. All the more reason, in our view, for Trump to make it happen forthwith. The bitter end of our Anglophilia. Plus, a Fox News host is booted off the air for comparing Hillary Clinton to "herpes." With Listener Calls & Music via Paul McCartney, Louane and Bobby Darin.
America First. Commending President Trump for his realpolitik approach to Saudi Arabia and Jamal Khashoggi. A necessary setback for America's formerly spook-run foreign policy. Bitter Clinger Barack Obama blames hate and racism and "mommy issues" for unrestrained global carbon emissions. Did someone turn off Obama's Teleprompter? Low-ratings Megyn Kelly "settles for more" in her hasty departure from NBC. Bad investment indeed. Meanwhile, North and South Korean soldiers shake hands on Thanksgiving in the DMZ. Peace on the Korean Peninsula? Courtesy of the Trump foreign policy. Plus, our interview with Elisabeth Sabaditsh-Wolff, Austrian human rights activist. The obstacles to Free Speech in Europe. More Cowbell. Backbone Radio's Matt Dunn guest-hosting the "Wake Up with Randy Corporon" show. With Listener Calls & Music via The Beatles and Blue Oyster Cult.

Notes on the con artist that is James Comey. Plea deal for Jerome Corsi? Backbone Radio's Matt Dunn guest-hosting the "Wake Up With Randy Corporon" show. With Listener Calls & Music via Johnny Cash, Styx and Steppenwolf.
Dwindling Prospects for SpyGate Prosecutions. Has Republican Establishment incompetence allowed the Deep State to skate? Joe diGenova goes scorched earth in his condemnation of Reps. Goodlatte and Gowdy. Ever so predictably, FBI snake James Comey defies a last-minute congressional subpoena. Will the Meddling British dodge punishment for their role in the FISA scandal? We certainly hope not. Meanwhile, expectations low for Prosecutor Huber's forthcoming testimony on December 5th. But could there be an actual D5? The problem of unelected power in America, the same olde divide between Donors and Voters. Plus, President Trump threatens to shut down the entirety of the border with Mexico. Will the Mexican government take appropriate steps? Backbone Radio's Matt Dunn guest-hosting the Steffan Tubbs Show. With Listener Calls & Music via Sia, Diplo, Labrinth and Eric Church.

The Obvious Constitutionality of Matthew Whitaker. As Democrats continue to panic over President Trump's new Acting Attorney General, we review the abundant clarity of the historical precedents herein. We sample Swamp Guardian Chris Wallace's interview with President Trump, on Whitaker and the so-called "divisiveness" of fighting back. Why is Bill Kristol so "hopelessly devoted" to Special Counsel Mueller? Skeletons lurking in the SpyGate Closets of Never Trump? Meanwhile, good sign, Rep. Bob Goodlate says he will be handing his DOJ/FBI Housework over to the Republican Senate soon. Rep. Devin Nunes describes DAG Rod Rosenstein as his chief obstacle to declassification.
