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. Also, we outline the Leftist impulse to pour acid on all things American. The ongoing all-out assault, which must be defeated. Plus, vignettes on child-rearing and the Bumper Music of Backbone Radio. The Great Weezer Debate. Coda: Promoting the goal of "competence" in our respective fields of work. Very important -- and they can't take that away from you.

A Visit with Jennifer Kerns, contributor to The Daily Caller and The Hill. Assessing "political reality" after the Midterm Elections. Republicans choose Rep. Kevin McCarthy as House Minority Leader.

With Music via Rita Ora, Giorgia and Heart.
Opening Monologues. Failed Republican Establishment attempting to "wait out" the Trump Revolution. Old Guard sneakily dividing the GOP, muzzling the MAGA Agenda on borders and trade, laboring under the presumption they'll eventually return to the dominance they enjoyed in the Bush Era. But as discovered all over again in this recent election, it's a poor strategy for their own preferred candidates. There's simply no going back. The chasm between GOP Donors and GOP Voters must ultimately be reconciled on the side of the GOP Voter, which happens to support President Trump in record numbers. Donor efforts to suppress the key issues which motivate and inspire have rendered their dollars sterile. Their constricted "illusions of choice" as dangled before the voters have proven unsuccessful. Ground needs to be gained incrementally, not ceded ideologically. Beware Fake Autopsies. Explaining the concept of "Concern Trolling." Our best summarium of the lay of the land in today's Republican Party, in Colorado and beyond. The country is at stake. With Listener Calls & Music via Waylon Jennings, Jethro Tull and George Strait.

The Arrival of Matthew Whitaker, Acting Attorney General. Major DOJ Gear-Shift. After spending two years hiding under his desk, Jeff Sessions has finally resigned as AG and headed home to Alabama. No stealth, no apparent redeeming qualities. So who is Matthew Whitaker? And why are Democrats going nuts over his appointment? We sketch the promising background of the 6'6" former Iowa footballer and outline the critical importance of this position moving forward, unto the storms awaiting President Trump in January 2019. Schumer, Pelosi and panicked Never Trumpers are demanding Whitaker's "immediate recusal" from the Mueller investigation. Full-throttle MSM propaganda already underway to undermine. But Whitaker says he won't be recusing. Why is Bill Kristol so spooked? Is the Mueller Cover-Up of Uniparty SpyGate malfeasance suddenly at risk of exposure? Could Whitaker start allowing IG Horowitz to actually do his job? DAG Rod Rosenstein signals his approval of the new AAG, and President Trump defends Whitaker on Twitter. We sound alarms of urgency over "declassification" as we suggest new "sunlight" might soon be headed into Deep State. Also, our reflections on the mysterious, hopeful and enduring countermeasures of DOJ White Hats. Kudos to The Conservative Treehouse. To Be Continued. Plus, Elvis Presley posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. With Listener Calls & Music via The Beatles and Sturgill Simpson. Sacred Song from Elvis Presley.
Enough of the Timid Contrasts. Colorado Republicans need to start leading with a sense of PURPOSE, on the larger issues that motivate Republican Voters. It would be helpful if the CO GOP Establishment could understand that Donald Trump SAVED the Republican Party back in 2016 -- saved it from the losing ways of the Bushes, Romney, McCain and Paul Ryan -- while teaching conservatives how to fight back and WIN. If key Republicans and their donors continue to overlook this lesson in reality, they do so at their own peril. It's well past time to unite the party. Meanwhile, CNN's boorish Jim Acosta finally gets his "hard pass" pulled to WH press conferences. Deranged Antifa Democrats attempt a home invasion of Fox News host Tucker Carlson. Still more Leftist political violence, and still winked at by the Leftist MSM. Didn't Hillary promise they'd start being more "civil"? Conrad Black writes that "Trump is blessed with his enemies." Preliminary notes on the resignation of AG Jeff Sessions and the arrival of AAG Matthew Whitaker. Also, we discuss the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. French Prime Minister Macron blames "nationalism" as the cause of that Unecessary War, but we prefer to blame the globalist "entangling alliances" of the era which managed to set Europe on fire. Plus, we celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Beatles White Album. With Listener Calls & Music via the Georgia Satellites, The Beatles and Louane.
Opening Monologues. The Californication of Colorado. Solid election results nationally, as the Trump GOP was able to overcome history to thwart a Blue Wave. Impressive gains in the U.S. Senate. But tough times indeed for Republicans in Blue State Colorado. We offer our Preliminary GOP Autopsy for Colorado 2018. Mild-mannered, Bush-like campaigns in the Trump Era. It must be said: The low energy, low purpose, low connection CO GOP simply could not have done worse, even if they tried. But will they learn the right lessons from this debacle? We criticize state leaders for continually distancing themselves from President Trump and the motivating MAGA agenda. Nationally, we observe the Republicans who did well tended to seek the "warm embrace" from Trump. Rough justice arrives for the defeated Rep. Mike Coffman, who fell short in his effort to represent a district reflective of the kind of America he has helped create. Coffman earned a dismissive comment from Trump: "Too bad Mike!" We bestow Darwin Awards upon sundry Never Trumpers, whose wayward political instincts have helped remove them from the political gene pool. Meanwhile, Democrats attempt to steal elections in Florida, Georgia and Arizona. As philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer once said, gotta keep on fighting. Eternal Vigilance. With Listener Calls & Music via Red Hot Chili Peppers, Heart and Morrissey.
Bad Karma for Saturday Night Live Democrats. Leftist SNL star Alec Baldwin gets arrested defending the sovereignty of his Manhattan parking space. SNL funnyman Pete Davidson mocks the eyepatch of Republican Dan Crenshaw, a former Navy SEAL who lost an eye in combat. We notice Democrats have dropped their Russian Collusion Hoax right before the Midterms. Two years of MSM Narrative down the drain. George Papadopoulos still on the SpyGate warpath, exposing Deep State perpetrators. Was there a FISA on Papadopoulos? Meanwhile, President Trump shines in defending America against a potential Migrant Caravan Invasion. We marvel at the sight of the U.S. Military defending our own American Border. Novel concept! CNN refuses to run GOP advertisement on the Caravan. Trump proposes ending Birthright Citizenship. It's all hands on deck two days before the elections. Hard-working Trump holding daily double rallies, today in Macon, Georgia and Chattanooga, Tennessee. Which way will the close races break? Trump wins if there's No Blue Wave. Rasmussen asks if "another silent red wave" might actually be materializing. Coda: Why We Fight, JFK speaks the Declaration of Independence. With Listener Calls & Music via Jamey Johnson, Neil Young, Pearl Jam and Eric Church. Sacred Song from Elvis Presley and the Jordanaires.
A portly Barbra Streisand renews threats to leave America, should there be No Blue Wave. Blames Trump for her pancake habit. On our end, The Waiting Is the Hardest Part. MSNBC's Katy Tur confuses Montana and North Dakota. CNN's Don Lemon says we should not be demonizing racial groups, but adds that "white men" are the "biggest terror threat in this country." Afterwards, CNN declined comment. Meanwhile, another great jobs report lands in our thriving MAGA Economy. We review the impressive new numbers. President Trump hits 51% approvals. Former President Obama tries to take credit for today's economy, draws a puny crowd to a Democratic rally in Gary, Indana. Remember the old Obama days when the "weather" was always conspiring to thwart job creation? Light drizzles even? Also, our conversation with Paterfamilias John Andrews about the Tuesday Midterms. Feeling good nationally, guarded in Colorado. Holding the House. With Listener Calls & Music via Tom Petty, Bethany Cosentino, Weezer, Creed, Randy Rhoads and Ozzy Osbourne.

The American Military defends our own American Border. Meanwhile, bad karma for SNL and the Democrats. Alec Baldwin gets arrested for sucker punching someone over a "parking spot" in Manhattan. Baldwin defending the borders of his own parking space? Also, SNL's funnyman Pete Davidson mocks the eyepatch of Republican candidate Dan Crenshaw. Quite the spectacle, Democrats laughing at a former U.S. Navy SEAL who lost his eye in combat. What will they think of next?
