James Clapper and "Finding #44." Did Deep State Clapper find a way to get himself paid for leaking to CNN? A new House Intel Report from Devin Nunes suggests the possibility, by revealing Clapper's "inconsistent testimony" to Congress regarding his leaking of the Steele Dossier to CNN. Yes -- prior to his becoming a paid CNN Contributor. Combine these revelations with Comey's descriptions of Clapper seeking a "news hook" for the Dossier, and it doesn't look good for the former Director of National Intelligence. Time to prosecute? Meanwhile, a volitile John Brennan threatens Trump again on Twitter, former CIA man Phil Mudd throws his pen across the CNN studios, and we conclude Strzok & Page weren't really having "an affair" after all. Former FBI man James Kallstrom says Comey has "lost his mind" and blasts the intelligence community's "cabal, a fifth column, a conspiracy" to overthrow the 2016 election. Also, with Korean leaders declaring an end to hostilities, Lindsey Graham nominates Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize, and the full-house crowd at Trump's Michigan Rally chants "Nobel! Nobel!" during the President's speech. Plus, we discuss bullying, cord-cutting, the fate of Amanda Carpenter's Blacklist and our update on the dwindling financial prospects of Never Trumpism, from the examples of Kevin Williamson and Michael Gerson. With Listener Calls & Music via Dwight Yoakam, K.D. Lang, Johnny Cash, Billy Joe Shaver and Julio Iglesias.
Political Anger and its Sustainability. How long can the Left stretch it all out? We review the national embarrassment of the White House Correspondents' Dinner, in which alleged comedian Michelle Wolf delivers "intense criticism" of the "physical appearance" of Kellyanne Conway and Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Seems these Leftists just can't help themselves. Meanwhile, President Trump brings a fighting spirit to Michigan, referring to James Comey as a "liar and a leaker" before the raucous "USA! USA!" chants of the overflow crowd. For his own part, the beleaguered Comey submits another dubious performance with Chuck Todd on Meet the Press. We listen to Comey belittle the new Trump-exonerating House Intel Report as only "a political document." A breathtaking statement from the individual who went out of his way to conceal Hillary's funding of the Steele Dossier -- a 'political document' if there ever was one. Notably, we detect Comey throwing DNI Clapper under the bus over their "salacious" briefing. Oh goodness, did Clapper find a way to "monetize" his leaking to CNN? Tucker Carlson of Fox News refers to Clapper as a "prolific liar," while announcing the Dossier was "a setup from the beginning." With Music from The Black Crowes, Skeeter Davis, The Beatles and The Pretenders. Coda Quotation from Thomas Jefferson: "I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man."
Opening Monologue. Breaking out of the "Mental Prisons" of the Left. A string of Democrats' Worst Nightmares now coming to pass. Peace comes to the Korean Peninsula, a strong Trump Economy grows apace, Police Staters Comey & Clapper plunge into the abyss, and Kanye West makes his jailbreak. The Leftist Media embarrass themselves at the White House Correspondents' Dinner, while President Trump holds a packed, high-energy America First rally in Michigan. Amusingly, we observe Adam Schiff becoming nearly as docile as Kim Jong Un. The only thing missing in this equation? Criminal prosecutions for the Deep State. But -- stay tuned. We sample Kanye West's new song "Ye vs. The People," which doubles down on his culture-shattering support for Donald Trump. Seismic Shifts happening right here and now. Plus, we make the case for promoting the Republican "fighters" needed to defeat the "command and control" techniques of the Left. POTUS showing the way. With Listener Calls & Music via Greta Van Fleet, The Moody Blues, Bobby Bare and Kanye West.
Matt Dunn of Backbone Radio guest hosts the Chuck & Julie Show. Remarkable developments on the Korean Peninsula. On the verge of "new era of peace" between North and South Korea. President Trump's "maximum pressure" techniques applied to Kim Jong Un now bearing fruit. MSM shocked by Trump's stunning diplomatic successes, achieved against admonitions of Entire American Foreign Policy Establishment. Nobel Peace Prize in the offing? Meanwhile, rapper Kanye West makes dramatic break from the "mental prison" of the Left. Could the Trump-loving Kanye bring down the Democratic Party? Predictably, Leftist Media Enforcers have launched furious attacks on Kanye and Kardashians -- but could all their MSM bullying backfire? Candace Owens, of Turning Point USA, announces we are "on the brink of a cultural shift" that will soon remake American politics, and for the better. With Listener Calls & Music via the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Sia.
Matt Dunn of Backbone Radio fills in for Chuck & Julie. The Ironies of James Comey's Revenge Tour. Sensing legal peril for leaking classified information, Comey evolves his defenses during the Bret Baier interview on Fox News. We sample commentary from Joe DiGenova, Catherine Herridge and Gregg Jarrett. We listen to President Trump describe Comey as a leaker and a liar. Amusingly, Comey denies the existence of a "Deep State" -- but admits there is a "Deep Culture." Distinction therein? Meanwhile, another leaker, James Clapper, finds himself exposed in a new Congressional report. We explore Conrad Black's essay on "Democrats In Peril." Will the Left's inability to accept electoral defeat in 2016 ultimately lead to their destruction? Has their inexplicable intransigence "roused a monster" with a "terrible resolve"? Also, we consider Larry Schweikart's contention that AG Jeff Sessions has been working behind the scenes to "indict virtually every one of the Deep State" who deserves a proper indictment. Plus, snapping out of the Manufactured Matrix. With Listener Calls & Music via Dwight Yoakam and Rage Against the Machine.
Backbone Radio's Matt Dunn fills in for Chuck & Julie. Dragon Energy & Democratic Nightmares. Happening now. Trump Economy soars, Comey flails, peace comes to the Korean Peninsula and Kanye West cracks the Left. Deep State on the run. We analyze the partisan hackery of disgraced former FBI Director James Comey in his Fox News interview with Bret Baier. Slippery ignorance, deliberate vagueness and a long string of banana peels. Prefers the term "cahoots" over "collusion" for some reason. Denies leaking classified information, says it was only "words." Claims cluelessness as to the funding provenance of the Steele Dossier. On the whole, poorly conveyed substance. With Listener Calls & Music via Bobby Darin and Sia.
Defeating the Deep State. Red Pill America v. Blue Pill Illusions. Waking up to a more profound political reality, grasping the manipulations of The Mirror, snapping out of the Manufactured Matrix. James Comey's "revenge tour" begins to backfire. The newly released Comey Memos exculpate President Trump, but implicate DNI James Clapper as the CNN Dossier Leaker. We sample a relevant Clapper Flashback with CNN's Don Lemon. Joe DiGenova offers commentary on Comey's "suicide note" as the "brazen plot" unravels. Inspector General Horowitz investigates. We narrate the incredible Comey-Clapper "setup scam" used to provide a "news hook" for the Steele Dossier in January 2017. In light of new information, we add necessary context to the "loyalty" frame used against Trump. Who's the real "mob boss" in all these shadows? Meanwhile, Maria Bartiromo conducts an explosive interview with Devin Nunes, who indicates his House Intel probe is moving on to the Obama-Hillary State Department. Sounds serious. Also, we contemplate the "Pakistani mystery man" attached to Democrat Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Or is it Wendy? Plus, our prayers for American pastor Andrew Brunson, still being held hostage in Erdogan's Turkey. With Listener Calls & Music via Old Crow Medicine Show, Imera, Ornella Vanoni and The Beatles. Sacred Song from Dwight Yoakam.
Is Kanye West Breaking the Democratic Party? The Angry Left suffers meltdown after Kanye tweets praise for Candace Owens, the Trump-supporting African-American director of Turning Point USA. We listen to Owens confront Black Lives Matter activists at a UCLA event, describing their "victim mentality" as "fundamentally false." For good measure, Owens observes that "the left is losing control of their blacks." Is the fragile Obama Coalition on the verge of electoral trouble in the Age of Trump? Meanwhile, Devin Nunes finally obtains the original documents underpinning the Trump-Russia counterintelligence investigation -- and finds nothing there. How can that be? Consequences forthcoming. Also, we speculate on the increasing uselessness of the once-mighty Drudge Report. Is Matt Drudge losing his soul? Plus, we ponder the DOJ utility of Trump's alleged nicknames for Jeff "Mr. Magoo" Sessions and Rod "Mr. Peepers" Rosenstein. We admit to preferring the latter to the former, while questioning the overall constitutional virility of our Attorney General. With Listener Calls & Music via R.E.M., the Climax Blues Band, Merle Haggard and Henry Mancini. Intermezzo: Das Rheingold Vorspiel from Richard Wagner.
Opening Monologue: Singing In the Saddle. Good news abounds this week for American Patriots. The Trump Economy is thriving, Democrats have lost their edge in the "generic" ballot, Comey has botched his book tour, and the MSM appears to be realizing Mueller cannot deliver the goods on Russian Collusion, nor even Obstruction. Joe DiGenova sees the chickens coming home to roost for Deep Staters "ensnared in the most significant political scandal in the history of this country." Meanwhile, the North Koreans have responded to President Trump's "maximum pressure campaign" by signaling strong interest in unconditional "complete denuclearization." Nobel Peace Prize in the offing for Trump? Or maybe even Dennis Rodman? We have learned that CIA Director Mike Pompeo visited personally with Kim Jong Un earlier this month, even as Democrats attempt to block Pompeo's nomination for Secretary of State. On the cusp of potentially stunning success on the Korean Peninsula? Also, a dispirited Mitt Romney comes in 2nd Place at the Utah GOP Convention, Kanye West threatens to upend the Democrats' fragile Obama Coalition, and the DNC launches a preposterous lawsuit against Wikileaks. Plus, pop singer Morrissey thrashes London Mayor Sadiq Khan for his "loony left" leadership. With Listener Calls & Music via Tex Ritter, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Manfred Mann and Morrissey.
The James Comey Freakshow. Lessons in Unethical Leadership from a bitter, disgruntled former FBI director. Chris Wallace of Fox News describes Comey's new book as surprisingly "bitchy." Democratic operative Lanny Davis calls Comey a "renegade narcissist." Trump calls him a "slimeball." We sample the Comey-Stephanopolous Interview, which oddly and obsessively rehashes the "Golden Showers" scam. Meanwhile, catfights erupt between Comey and former AG Loretta Lynch and the FBI's disgraced Andrew McCabe. Fireworks forthcoming. Also, we review Mueller's face-saving exit strategy, in which he maneuvers to get himself fired by President Trump. How many red lines will he cross towards that end? Is Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein part and parcel of a surreptitious tag-team? Ann Coulter advises Trump to "let Mueller twist." We salute Trump for not taking the bait -- for not firing Mueller -- and for mastering the art of unpredictable responses to Establishment-Manufactured Stimuli. Plus, we consider Daniel Greenfield's thoughtful essay: "Using the FBI to Suppress a Political Revolution." There are two Americas. One is your country, the other consists of the people who run it. The Romans broke their republic. Are political mercenaries like Mueller breaking ours? With Listener Calls & Music via Train, Eric Church and Louane. Sacred Song from Elvis Presley.
