Justice Is Coming. President Trump, en route to vindication, describes "the biggest scandal in the history of our country" as engineered by Democrats after their failure to "steal" the 2016 election. As new SpyGate revelations continue to drip into the discourse, the "moment of reckoning" can't be far away. We learn this week that Nellie Ohr spent at least six years working for the CIA, which brings us ever-closer to John O. Brennan, communist director of the CIA under Obama. Mastermind of the whole diabolical plot? And why no tweets from Brennan lately? Rome and London and The Five Eyes. Meanwhile, we ponder the consequences of collapsed trust between MSM connoisseurs and their failed network tour guides. What happens when viewers suddenly realize CNN and MSNBC cannot deliver on their promises of Russian Collusion? The tourism of no return. Might not be pretty. Plus, amusing montages of the clueless AOC's most favorite words and the MSM's most consistently pedestrian cliches. The Wheels Are Like Coming Off. Also, our humor at the expense of Hollywood Leftists arrested this week for bribing college officials to get their low-functioning children into top schools. Typical Ruling Class behavior. Meritocracy indeed. Who Put the Overalls in Mrs. Murphy's Chowder? Danny Boy and St. Patrick's Day. Tributes to the Irish. With Listener Calls & Music via Bing Crosby, Rush, Tourist and the Avett Brothers. Sacred Songs from Dwight Yoakam and Bill Monroe.

The Dirty Dozen. Establishment Republican Senators vote against President Trump's emergency declaration at the Southern Border. We describe the slick dishonesty of these "America Last" senatorial puppets, as we commend Colorado Senator Cory Gardner for bucking his peers and sticking with Trump. Indeed, somewhat to our surprise, Gardner did the right thing. We sample Attorney General William Barr's forthright defense of Trump's declaration, which he says is "clearly authorized under the law." Meanwhile, host debates a liberal caller on borders, trade, wages and the future of the working class. Until recently, America's Elites had been stuffing their wallets by abusing the sovereignty of our nation, at the direct expense of our own people. From their porous borders to their disastrous trade deals to their woefully ruinous foreign policy -- all of it. America was long overdue for a course correction, and we've already seen the turnaround in our growing MAGA economy. With that in mind, we review a phenomenal Candidate Trump speech from 2016 outlining the stakes for national survival. Replacing the failed Washington Establishment. Reclaiming control of the government for the American People. The Speech That Got Trump Elected. Plus, vignettes on De Tocqueville and the grounding of Boeing's 737 MAX airplanes. The perils of technology. For Whom The Bell Tolls. Two Shillelagh O'Sullivan on St. Patrick's Day. With Listener Calls & Music via Bing Crosby, Train, Supertramp and Metallica.

Opening Monologues. Dominoes Are Falling. Is SpyGate about to break wide open? There's a new sheriff in town, and we're liking the shift in tone brought on by Attorney General William Barr. President Trump hits 93% approvals within the GOP, which pollster Frank Luntz describes as the highest intra-party numbers "since the invention of polling." Speaker Pelosi announces she's dropping her plans for impeachment, the "pitbull" Andrew Weissman drops out of Team Mueller, and we find proof of John McCain's fingerprints on the Steele Dossier. Rep. Doug Collins releases a steady stream of congressional transcripts, all extremely incriminating to our recurring cast of Deep State perpetrators. But as the MSM watches its fraudulent narratives evaporate in real-time, instead of contrition we see the Left redoubling its efforts to silence political opposition. Judge Jeanine Pirro faces a two-week suspension from Fox News, and Media Matters pushes hard to knock Tucker Carlson off the air. Apparently the Left realizes they cannot win on the level playing field of ideas -- and thus prefer their battlefields of censorship. We review Michael Anton's essay in American Greatness outlining the critical importance of conservatives standing up to such Ruling Class predations. Gotta fight back together. The Elites are bleeding Middle America dry, and they know it. Plus, vignettes on this week's Cyclone Blizzard Bomb in Colorado along with our best St. Patrick's Day Parade. With Listener Calls & Music via Bing Crosby, Creed, Chumbawumba and Van Morrison.

On the Verge of The Reckoning. Leftist Media sounding alarms on the impending Mueller Goose Egg. Terry Moran of ABC News reports on "a reckoning" at hand for Democrats if Mueller comes up empty on Russian Collusion. Can the Jerry Nadler "narrative pivot" save their bacon? Federal Judge T.S. Ellis rebukes the excesses of Team Mueller by sentencing Paul Manafort to a comparatively measly 47 months in prison, while pointing out that the sentence has nothing to do with Russian collusion. Rep. Doug Collins releases the Bruce Ohr transcripts, which are quite bad for the FBI and Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS. Senator Lindsey Graham sends a strong letter to AG William Barr demanding information, especially regarding the 'Woods Procedures' of the FISA Courts. Will Barr offer a prompt reply? If so, could prove devastating to Obama's SpyGate cohort. Meanwhile, the University of Wyoming sticks with its "the world needs more cowboys" slogan, in spite of fringe Leftist outrage. Will the PC Police force a name change of John Wayne Airport in Orange County? We review the spiteful determination of the Left to overthrow traditional American idols. Plus, a raft of great MAGA economic headlines. Notes on the necessity of defined boundaries for a free happy society. The "Californication" of the Colorado Electoral College. Gonna Miss HRC. Also, vignettes on skiing the Colorado high country. Best Snow of the Decade. Moose and Avalanche at Breckenridge. High Altitude Twitter. With Listener Calls & Music via the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Saint Etienne, Gene Autry, Eddy Arnold and Brad Paisley. Sacred Song from Lauren Daigle.

March 10, 2019

The Rise of Socialism in America. Does the Democratic Party now belong to Socialist Bernie Sanders? We review Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper's awkward appearance on Face The Nation, in which he fails to answer the question. Presidential candidate Hickenlooper dysfluently says labels are "kinda silly" when it comes to contrasting capitalism with socialism. Will his trademark hemming and hawing aw-shucks routine succeed on the national stage? Callers offer strong opinions to the negative. Meanwhile, we offer our best antidotes to Socialism in America, which include building a thriving Middle Class via America First policies on trade and immigration. In brief, the already successful Trump MAGA Economy. We sample economist Thomas Sowell on socialism, Charles Murray on formerly prudent elites, and recommend Friedrich Hayek's The Road to Serfdom as essential reading on the subject. The critical importance of understanding Central Planning v. Individual Freedom in world history, as presently exhibited by the ongoing Venezuelan catastrophe. The fight against collectivization is one we can win, but which is made more challenging in the presence of a Ruling Class that has turned its back on its own people. With Listener Calls & Music via Gillian Welch, Giorgia and the Old Crow Medicine Show.

Opening Monologues. Anger Management for Democrats. MSM scrambling for its next hateful anti-Trump narrative. Fearing pro-Trump slingshot in the polls in Life After Mueller. Democrat Nadler goes Full McCarthy. Will connoisseurs of the MSM go along with such clumsy redirection efforts? President Trump signs Bibles for tornado victims in Alabama, because they asked him to. Classless media responds with wild invective -- against Trump, and also the victims. Meanwhile, ISIS makes its last stand in the village of Baghouz, Syria near the Iraqi border. We contrast the strange growth of ISIS under Obama with its speedy demise in the Trump Era. How to explain? Plus, we review the crash of an Ethiopian Airlines jet en route to Nairobi. Host describes experiences working in hospitals in northern Ethiopia. Also, blackouts continue in Socialist Venezuela. Nationalist Italy brings illegal immigration from Libya to a halt. Hate hoaxer Jussie Smollett indicted on 16 felony counts by Chicago Grand Jury. Exuberant field reports from the pinnacle of the Colorado ski season. Epic Powder. With Listener Calls & Music via Mike Ness, Dwight Yoakam and Olivia Newton-John.   

The Steffan Tubbs Show SPECIAL – March 6th, 2019 Hour 3

March 6, 2019

Democrat Jerry Nadler goes fishing with Joseph McCarthy. Sends out 81 letters in search of "proof" of Trump malfeasance. Weak narrative pivot -- has nothing. Meanwhile, Establishment Republicans polish their inevitable "excuses" for maintaining our wide open borders. The "precedent" copout. Et tu Rand Paul? Our favorite libertarian dilettante misspells Montesquieu while failing to realize we're losing the country. We sample the latest Customs and Border Protection updates on the emergency at the Southern Border. Rep. Jim Jordan blasts the GOP Establishment for failing to back President Trump's efforts to secure the border. Plus, Thomas Sowell's sobering thoughts on Socialism. Also, disgraced James Clapper tries to sneak out of another whopper. With Listener Calls & Music via Bing Crosby, Louis Armstrong, Brad Paisley, Diplo, Sia and Greta Van Fleet. Matt Dunn guest-hosting the Steffan Tubbs Show.

Establishment "Norms" are code words for Establishment Power. Nuisance Never Trumpers Tom Nichols and Karen Soltis Anderson moan along on MSNBC about President Trump's alleged assault on their precious "norms" and "institutions." We wade through the hypocrisy to describe what they really mean. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton announces she will not be running in 2020. Will anyone be missing her -- besides Trump? Also not running are Michael Bloomberg and Eric "Wingman" Holder. Intimidated by the Trump swagger? Also, Obama's communist former CIA Director John Brennan says the Mueller Report may be coming out this Friday. Talking Big. We review our expectations for the Mueller Goose Egg. With Listener Calls & Music via Dwight Yoakam, Brad Paisley, the Alexandrov Ensemble and Muse. Matt Dunn guest-hosting the Steffan Tubbs Show.

Opening Monologues. The Ongoing Democratic Comedy. Or has it become a farce? If the Left didn't have their MSM, they'd really be out of luck as their woes and backfires keep on mounting. Narratives Imploding. Pivot Required. Robert Costa of The Washington Post says there's "blood in the water" -- but mistakes its sources. Meanwhile, we visit with former Senate President John Andrews on the misguided efforts of Colorado Democrats to overthrow the Electoral College. With Listener Calls & Music via Midnight Oil, Daft Punk and Julian Casablancas. Matt Dunn guest-hosting the Steffan Tubbs Show.

Tyranny Over the Mind of Man. We cannot be free so long as we are enslaved by Leftist Power Narratives. The conditions of freedom require cracking the omnipresent MSM Matrix. It takes work, in modern America, to achieve proper mental hygiene. How will couch connoisseurs of CNN & MSNBC handle their frantic "narrative pivot" from Goose Egg Mueller over to SDNY and Obstruction? We suspect some of the livestock will notice what's actually happening. Impressively, The Rat Michael Cohen demolishes the "collusion" narrative along with the Steele Dossier. We sample Devin Nunes' summarium of the Cohen Hearings and Rep. Jim Jordan's patient tutelage of NBC Chuck Todd's feigned ignorance. No Prague! Meanwhile, our update on Never Trumpers now on "mouth-to-mouth resuscitation" in their fight for survival. Jonah Goldberg announces his departure from National Review, as we review the "cult of Trump obsession" still going strong on Never Trump Island. Sadly, RINO's prepare to block Trump's Emergency Declaration at the Southern Border -- drafting faux "precedent" in the process. Not an acceptable maneuver, in our view. Plus, we sample Michelle Malkin's wolverine CPAC speech blasting the "immigration saboteurs" of the Republican Party Establishment. Ryan, McCain, McConnell. Nicely done. Also, vignettes on Socrates, Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Breitbart. With Listener Calls & Music via Johnny Cash, Joaquin Phoenix, George Harrison and Astrid. Sacred Song from George Strait. God and Country Music.
