Lanny Davis Walks It All Back. But CNN does not -- yet. Michael Cohen's theoretical Anti-Trump bombshells turn into another big MSM backfire. We decode this particularly dramatic installment of Pristine CNN Propaganda, from launch to collapse. Did Trump have foreknowledge of the Trump Tower meeting with Veselnitskaya? No, says Lanny. Did Michael Cohen ever visit Prague? "Never, never, ever" says Lanny, taking a surprise sledgehammer to the Steele Dossier. Meanwhile, we sense doormat AG Jeff Sessions running out of time, and suggest the time is NOW for him to "declassify" the documents. Senators Graham & Grassley are advising Trump to fire Sessions soon, while Rep. Darrell Issa says Sessions needs to "step up to the plate and engage." Political Theatre? Also, we look at James Comey's sanctimonious view of "truth" even as journalist Paul Sperry uncovers his trail of lies around the Hillary Emails on the Weiner Laptop. Plus, callers continue to discuss the "Denver GoTopless Day" and offer generally negative opinions on the legacy of John McCain. BIG Week Ahead. With Music via The Smiths, Flying Burrito Brothers and The Sundays. Sacred Song from Francesca Battistelli.
High Stakes 2018 Elections. Sen. Bill Cassidy says if Democrats take the House, our strong MAGA Economy will be placed in jeopardy, and it will be "Maxine Waters leading the charge" and "all impeachment all the time." Something to think about. Meanwhile, we review the faux criminality of Michael Cohen's "Hell Week." The Great One, Mark Levin, says there have been no campaign finance violations and that "Trump's in the clear." Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz agrees, and explains all this to a hostile MSNBC host. Also, we consider the growing list of Western Intel assets who approached George Papadopoulos during the 2016 Campaign. He became a very popular guy -- for their planting and extracting SpyGate information. Plus, more callers weigh in on "Denver GoTopless Day." Additional commentaries on the passing of John McCain. Vignettes on Colorado's "Dusty Skies" of recent weeks. Clearing out at last. With Listener Calls & Music via Tommy Duncan, Bob Wills, Joe Walsh, Eros Ramazzotti, Webb Pierce, Sheryl Crow and Nirvana.
Opening Monologues. Hells Bells. We review President Trump's alleged "Hell Week" and find out it wasn't so hellish after all. Following all kinds of high-decibel Sturm and Drang, the MSM finds itself already in retreat, as Lanny Davis has pulled the rug out from under several layers of Bogus Narrative. Were they bluffing all along? Meanwhile, we discuss the tragic fate of Mollie Tibbetts, the missing University of Iowa student now found to have been murdered by an illegal immigrant. More "collateral damage" from Open Borders zealots. MSM suddenly loses interest, dismisses as just "a girl in Iowa." We sample the tone-deaf commentary of Sen. Elizabeth Warren. Also, we remark on the passing of Senator John McCain. Plus, a caller describes her experiences at "Denver GoTopless Day." Pedal steel vignettes on the passage of time. With Listener Calls & Music via AC/DC, the Beach Boys, R.E.M. and Cracker.
Brennan Backtracks. Deep State Scatters. Disgraced former CIA Director John Brennan tells Rachel Maddow he didn't really mean to accuse Trump of "treason." Brennan now says he was just acting "Irish" and all. Does he begin to sense his predicament? Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani says Brennan has been the mastermind of the SpyGate Scandal, adding that Brennan is an "out of control political hack" and "one of the biggest frauds in the history of this country." Meanwhile, Rep. John Ratcliffe sketches lines of inquiry for his upcoming interview with DOJ Bruce Ohr. Fireworks ahead. Consultant Ed Rollins says there will be No Blue Wave. Nate Silver disagrees. What color shall be the wave? We review the faulty media portrayal of an illegal immigrant arrested by ICE while driving his pregnant wife to a hospital. Turns out he was wanted for murder, in Mexico, a key detail omitted by the MSM. Also, we talk tariffs, the end of the NFL, and more "dog politics" in America. Plus, a brief reprise of our spelling competition with Rev. Al Sharpton. And the Winner Is? With Listener Calls & Music via Depeche Mode, Paul McCartney, Blue Stingrays, Dwight Yoakam, Baja Men and Mazzy Star.
Our Neurotic Mainstream Media. We sample a typical NBC panel accusing President Trump of hypothetical genocide, persuant to the warped hatreds of John Podhoretz and NYT Michelle Goldberg. Even as the broader MSM calls for radical censorship of conservatives and seeks to doxx jurors in the Manafort Trial. The MSM "reality problem" continues -- thankfully the American People are tuning them out. Meanwhile, OMB Director Mick Mulvaney describes a MAGA Economy bursting at the seams, as we now approach full-employment in America. Also, U.S. Steel announces a massive investment in Gary, Indiana. A new CPA study claims Trump's "tariffs" have created thousands of Blue Collar jobs. Plus, we review Rev. Al Sharpton's startling misspelling of a classic Aretha Franklin song: R-E-S-P-I-C-T. Close enough for MSNBC standards? With Listener Calls & Music via Ke$ha, Joe Walsh, The Avener, Kadebostany, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Frank Sinatra, Aretha Franklin and Chuck Berry.
Opening Monologues. CIA Phil Mudd's Greatest Hits. Spooks Turning On Spooks. Clapper throws Brennan under the bus. Corrupt Senate Intel Committee finally cracking, strange new noises from Senators Burr & Warner. George Papadopoulos tweets "Tick Tock" -- might be wanting out of Mueller Plea Deal? Meanwhile, we explore the latest on-air explosion from CNN's egregious Philip Mudd. We marvel at ex-CIA man Mudd's nasty, hostile, deranged attacks on conservative black commentator Paris Dennard. Why are Beltway Insiders so touchy about the prospect of losing their Security Clearances? Does their unelected power derive from accessing and controlling our state secrets? Big Money? We thank Mudd for presenting the true face of the Deep State Cult to the American People. Also, we offer a Philip Mudd Retrospective compilation of Mudd's most malicious CNN commentaries over the past year. Plus, vignettes on Surfing. With Listener Calls & Music via Joan Jett, the Beach Boys and Aretha Franklin.
Deep State Narratives Imploding. Matt Dunn guest-hosting Chuck & Julie Show. Who Let the Dogs Out? Sen. John Kennedy calls CIA Brennan "a butthead." And says he meant it. Clapper "uhms" about the First Amendment. NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo says America "was never that great." Democrats' bizarre extremist Blue Wave Strategies. What was DOJ Bruce Ohr Doing? Big trouble ahead for Bruce & Nellie Ohr. Spy Steele's bad conscience, fearing exposure. Thin ice for Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS. Bill Kristol's sad ties to the Dossier. Mueller Cover Up. RIP Aretha Franklin, Queen of Soul. A Blues Brothers confession. Film Review Mission Impossible: Fallout. Concert Review Dwight Yoakam rocks the house at Red Rocks.

Dog Politics in America. Matt Dunn guest-hosting Chuck & Julie Show. NBC Brian Williams asks if Trump doesn't like "dogs" -- discusses presidential history of dogs with Philip Rucker of Washington Post. Recalling Romney's dog on the roof. A caller blasts Omarosa. Youth Unemployment hits 52-year low. Trump Economy Rolls. Corker's Banana Republic and Precious Institutions. CIA Brennan's Security Clearance. Gone for good. The USSR National Anthem, in honor of Brennan. Debating a caller over Trump's alleged "lies." Where are the examples? With Listener Calls & Music via the Doors, the Doobie Brothers and the Alexandrov Ensemble.
Opening Monologues. Matt Dunn guest-hosting Chuck & Julie Show. Manafort Trial Updates. MSM threatens to doxx jurors. Judge Ellis now protected by U.S. Marshals. Fired Strzok's Bad Week compounded by Wal-Mart MAGA Economy. Omarosa Ongoing Fraud. Nate Silver still prognosticating, undimmed by humiliation. Contrasting MSM portrayals of Democrat Keith Ellison and Republican Jim Jordan. Just Another Day for 350 Fake Newspapers coordinating against Trump. Left Power Lust, beyond standards, beyond hypocrisy. Stapleton v. Polis. With Listener Calls & Music via Paul McCartney and AC/DC.
Cracking the Deep State. Momentum Builds for Declassification. President Trump hints he's ready to "get involved." An exuberant Rudy Giuliani says the whole Mueller probe is "gonna blow up" on the Democrats. Joe diGenova says critical documents are being released "as we speak." Rep. Bob Goodlatte makes a big move, issuing subpoenas for the entire DOJ/FBI "Steele Dossier" conspiracy group. Meanwhile, John Solomon has issued a new string of blockbuster articles exposing Spy Christopher Steele's corrupt relationship with DOJ Bruce Ohr, and Byron York has outlined Steele's shocking connection with Russian Oligarch Oleg Deripaska. As Bruce Ohr becomes a central figure of the investigation and prepares to testify before Congress, we listen to Rep. Devin Nunes' latest conversation with Maria Bartiromo. Things are happening -- and just in the nick of time. Also, CNN Brian Stelter crows about "more than 100" newspapers preparing to criticize Trump in a "coordinated response" later this week. But, we ask, how is this concept unique? And does anyone even care? NYC Mayor Bill DeBlasio says America would be much better off without Rupert Murdoch and Fox News. Not a big fan of the First Amendment, apparently. Plus, we listen to Steve Schmidt, a tasteless Republican Establishment Consultant, describe the purifying benefits of forest fires and exclaim that the "Party of Trump" needs to "burn to the ground." A grotesque 'fire' analogy indeed, as several Western states continue to suffer through a dreadful fire season. With Listener Calls & Music via Dwight Yoakam and Paul McCartney. Sacred Song from Reba McEntire.
