Beltway Update with Jennifer Kerns. Is Dr. Carson holding his own under all this fire? Did Trump hold his own on Saturday Night Live? Is Rubio really "skyrocketing" in the polls? It does appear Jeb Bush has determined to stay in the race. Does Jeb's decision reveal a strange appetite for punishment -- or will he ultimately rise from the ashes? We look ahead to the next GOP Debate on the Fox Business channel. What to expect? Will the "moderators" become the story once again? With music and listener calls.
Dr. Ben Carson endures full-scale political attack from the insiders at Politico and the Wall Street Journal. But as Politico in particular now appears to be eating their own words with regard to Carson, we ask -- who has been feeding Politico? Will Carson go away as easily as Herman Cain? Meanwhile, we take a look at the purported "surge" in the prospects of candidate Marco Rubio. Possibly some wishful thinking here? Sen. Chuck Schumer throws Rubio under the bus, by reminding everyone how Rubio was "totally committed" to the 2013 Gang of Eight amnesty bill. In this era of Donald Trump, Kate Steinle, scrutiny of globalist donors and the real-time invasion of Europe -- We ask whether Rubio's immigration record might be a deal-breaker with GOP voters. Plus, we review Donald Trump's appearance on Saturday Night Live. Also, we talk James Bond and manage to violate the strict "Phil Collins Rule." With music and listener calls.
Globalism v. Nationalism. The 2016 Election might hinge on this axis, with the globalists on one side and Trump on the other. Where are the true sentiments of the American people on trade, immigration and national sovereignty? What becomes of a nation if it's elites lose their sense of "national loyalty"? We explore the debate through the prism of a new book by Financial Times editor Martin Wolf -- "The Shifts and the Stocks: What We've Learned from the Financial Crisis." How valid are Wolf's trenchant criticisms of American and European elites? Will the current immigration crisis in Europe become the death knell for the EU? Also, we discuss the concept of "muscular Christianity" and the perils of "decadence" in Western Culture. Meanwhile, Trump earns the prestigious endorsement of Mike Tyson. Is pop culture relevant to politics? With music and listener calls.
The nice liberal ladies at "The View" now criticize Carly Fiorina's "face" and overall physical appearance. What's up with the double-standard on Political Correctness? We ask Jennifer Kerns, Beltway Correspondent. Meanwhile, "Establishment Warfare" heats up as Jeb attacks Rubio's absentee voting record in the Senate, and Rubio fires back. We discuss the apparent futility of the Jeb Bush campaign, as he complains about how hard everything seems to be for him. We also discuss Rubio's recent revelation that he doesn't find it "meaningful" to be a United States Senator, thus he doesn't show up for work. Prima Donnas, both of them? Will the big billionaire money behind Rubio be enough to place him ahead of Trump? Or will voters appreciate Trump's ungovernable independence from the big donors all the more? Summarizing notes on the CNBC debate, plus some conversation about the Denver Broncos. With music and listener calls.
The Establishment begins the big push for Marco Rubio, as the billionaires coalesce and attempt to shame Jeb Bush out of the race. But will the pro-amnesty Rubio, supported by open borders globalist big donors, be able to gain traction with today's GOP base? Will Jeb continue to "go rogue" and stay in and continue to attack his disloyal protégé? A recipe for insider heartburn, for sure. Meanwhile, we speculate that Democrats actually believe Donald Trump would be the hardest Republican to run against, based on his base-inspiring enthusiasm, his astonishing polling with African-Americans, and his appeal to working class "Union" voters. Among other things. We review the John Kasich and Jeb Bush connection to the now-defunct Lehman Brothers investment bank leading up to the 2007 financial collapse. Discredited financial elites? Also, David Brooks threatens to move to Canada if Trump wins, and advises Jeb to embrace his role as the boring "laxative" candidate. With music and listener calls.
