Dangerous Times in America. A Friday night "intruder" at the White House. A Wikileaks release of the CIA-damning "Vault Number Seven" archive, and swirling accusations of Team Obama eavesdropping on candidate Trump. Why is an anger-fueled CNN placing the White House in the semi-literal crosshairs? Has the mainstream media finally crossed over into insanity? We scrutinize media bias in the handling of U.S. Attorney resignations, and we play "sad little violins" for reporters complaining about their lack of "down" time in covering the high-velocity President Trump. Meanwhile, it seems the Democrats have quietly dropped their Russian Conspiracies behind the piano. What are they afraid of? Plus, a summarium of Obamacare 2.0, simmering Leftist disillusion with the Obama Legacy, and not missing George Will on the Sunday Shows. With Listener Calls & Music via Weezer, the Shins, Social Distortion and Antonio Lucio Vivaldi.

What did Obama know and when did he know it? Could the burgeoning "DeepStateGate" scandal end up engulfing former President Obama? And why is Valerie Jarrett moving into the Obama Mansion in the D.C. suburbs? In other news, we consider President Trump's highly-acclaimed speech before the Joint Session of Congress, which hailed strong borders, trade protectionism and America First. The next chapter in American Greatness. Meanwhile, hypocritical Democrats end up "red faced" over their Russian conspiracizing and Sen. Chris Coons backtracks on his claims of Russian "collusion." No Evidence. As former Congressman Tom Tancredo blasts a spineless Rep. Mike Coffman for peeling away from Attorney General Jeff Sessions, callers help bestow another well-deserved "Invertebrate Award." Plus, heated debate on the merits of Hollywood musical "La La Land" with Casey Bloyer. With Listener Calls & Music via Sturgill Simpson, Dwight Yoakam, Cody Jinks and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

A conversation with Myron Magnet, Editor-at-Large of City Journal. Reviewing Leftist political violence on college campuses. How did a Middlebury College professor end up in a neck brace after her encounter with an angry mob of students? What do the political riots at Berkeley portend for the American future? How has the Orwellian Left -- which has clearly run out of ideas -- managed such Doublespeak against Free Speech? Also, notes on Charles Murray's study of the troubled "white working class" in America. Plus, President Trump takes on the Surveillance State. As the "permanent government" fights to hold power, we consider how President George Washington dismissed the Executive Branch bureaucrats of his own day. With Listener Calls & Music via Cat Stevens, Green Day, Le Castle Vania and Johnny Cash.

Police State USA? President Trump shocks the Beltway with a series of tweets accusing President Obama of "tapping my phones" in October 2016. We dig deep into these explosive charges, as it now seems certain that candidate Trump was under NSA surveillance heading into the election. Newt Gingrich says the Obama Administration "smells to high heaven" in all this, while Andrew McCarthy of National Review describes Obama's "politically motivated abuse of presidential power." A pattern dating back to the IRS Scandal? We consider the stunning word-parsing "non-denials" of Obama spokesmen Josh Earnest and Kevin Lewis, along with Sen. Chuck Schumer's duplicitous "either way" lack of denial. With Listener Calls & Music via AC/DC, Moby and the Beatles.
