The Precious "Norms" of Establishment Power. FBI Director Christopher Wray suddenly decides to speak, launching a weird "angry" diatribe against the Government Shutdown. But good grief -- where has Wray's wrath been with regard to all the 7th Floor FBI corruption under Comey & McCabe? We sample Rep. Devin Nunes' morning visit with Maria Bartiromo on the next levels of SpyGate accountability. Why is the Mueller "Scope Memo" still such a big secret? More interview transcripts to be released next week. Could Mueller's current theatrics be the designated distraction for events quietly breaking against the Deep State? Meanwhile, after re-opening the government, President Trump vows to find a way to Build The Wall. We sample RNC audio about the success of the "wall" on the borders of Israel. Why won't Chuck Schumer & Nancy Pelosi allow the same for America? Plus, our coda on the MSM's inexcusable treatment of the Covington Catholic high school kids. We add context on "facecrime" from George Orwell's 1984. CNN's Brian Stelter looks for an escape hatch, while CNN's self-absorbed Kirsten Powers claims the 'real victims' of the episode are the journalists. The MSM got the whole "smirk" thing all wrong, and Covington Kids' attorney Robert Barnes has lawsuits in the offing. Also, Bruce Springsteen says Trump will win again in 2020. Anniversary Song. With Listener Calls & Music via the Cowboy Junkies and Bruce Springsteen. Sacred Song from Dwight Yoakam.
Gestapo Tactics from Goose Egg Mueller. A guns-drawn, predawn raid of Roger Stone's home in Florida. No less than 29 members of a SWAT team in full tactical gear, with armored vehicles, amphibious vehicles and a helicopter overhead. All topped off by a convenient CNN Ride-Along. Quite the fascist production for the arrest of the 66-year-old Stone, now in the fight of his life. We sample Stone's defiant interviews with George Stephanopoulos and Tucker Carlson. Has Mueller become an out-of-control fanatic? Poll data suggests public opinion souring on the Special Counsel. Meanwhile, legal scholars Andrew McCarthy and Jonathan Turley marvel at the total lack of Russian "collusion" alleged in the Stone indictment. Maybe that should be the real headline here? Plus, notes on the Deep State talent for Shadow-Casting. Hope against hope for AG Nominee William Barr. Where's AAG Whitaker? Alec Baldwin signs up for an Anger Management class -- but will there be ample parking nearby? Why don't celebrities move to Venezuela? Take On Me.

Opening Monologues. Sharing the Country. Can it be done anymore? Trump Derangement Syndrome overtakes our institutions. Mueller goes full fascist on Roger Stone. Backstabbing Republican Party Establishment blinks on the Shutdown. Colorado Senator Cory Gardner flakes first -- impressive Profile in Cowardice. Callers weigh in with trenchant critiques of our ostensibly Republican Senator. Tired of GOPe games. Seeking an honest new Republican Party with a healthy new crop of Republican leaders. Meanwhile, Speaker Pelosi's "unfavorables" skyrocket during the Shutdown. Covington Kids thoroughly abused by the MSM, guilty of Orwellian Facecrime. Andrew Sullivan and the language of Civil War. Che Guevara Time? The UK Daily Telegraph apologizes for lying about First Lady Melania. The Fate of RBG. With Listener Calls & Music via Van Halen, Elastica and The White Stripes.
Approaching Accountability on SpyGate. Recently released testimony from DOJ Bruce Ohr undermines longstanding Deep State posturing on FISA Abuse. Major new revelations of corruption within Obama's FBI. Bad week for Democrats Adam Schiff and Jim Himes, now exposed for lying to the American people. We sample Rep. John Ratcliffe's morning interview with Maria Bartiromo, which covers all the bases. Can the MSM survive an "anticlimactic" report from Team Mueller? Can AG Nominee William Barr bring it all home? Meanwhile, President Trump hits 50 percent approvals from Latino voters. Mitt Romney reaches a near-majority of "unfavorables" from GOP voters. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez opines on morality, Speaker Pelosi discusses immorality. The amusing spectacle of the Democrat Bus going around in circles, before dropping them back off at home. Short trip for Pelosi, thanks to our savvy POTUS. Notes on the uselessness of conservative intellectuals remaining "above the fray." All those empty abstractions. Plus, vignettes on skiing heavy powder with small children in Colorado. Apres Ski with the Big Onions at Arapahoe Basin. Joey Ramone's punk rock tribute to Maria Bartiromo.

Team Mueller Blows Up BuzzFeed. Yet another Russian bombshell backfires on the MSM, making them look like fools after their full day of calling for Trump's "impeachment." Whoopsies. We offer amusing details on what CNN's Jeffrey Toobin candidly calls "a bad day for us." NBC's Chuck Todd tries to stay on offense, attacking those blaming "all media" in the aftermath. The olde "pounce" propaganda technique. But why did Mueller do it? We offer two plausible ignoble theories. Meanwhile, America continues to survive its longest Government Shutdown. Almost like it's no big deal, actually. Callers offer high praise for Trump's cancellation of Speaker Pelosi's international travel plans. Congressional baggage gets returned. A tremendous shot in the arm for GOP voters. We suggest conservative intellectuals should step away from their lofty abstractions and start engaging in "the sandbox" as well. Fighting Democrats on their own terms. Plus, leftists suffer meltdown over Trump's "fast food" White House offering for Clemson Tigers footballers. Humorless CNN objects to Trump's "salad" joke while turning a blind eye to the over-the-top rhetorical vulgarities of Democratic Representatives Tlaib and Ocasio-Cortez. Also, sketching the weird passion of weak Republicans for denouncing their fellow Republicans. Virtue Signals. Fica Tudo Bem. Brazilian Disco. Hiilawe. With Listener Calls & Music via Anitta, Silva, Sigrid and Tia Carrere.
Opening Monologues. A Week of Amazing MSM Faceplants. The Leftists at BuzzFeed serve up another bogus story of Russian Collusion, only to get shot down by none other than Robert Mueller. Embarrassed media personages spend the weekend digging out. However, they soon manage to go all-in on yet another Fake News story, alleging a handful of Covington Catholic Prep School students disrespected a Native American tribal "elder" at the March for Life rally. But it turns out it didn't happen, and the events were actually the other way around. It was the "elder" who approached the teenager -- banging a drum in the stoic kid's face. Is the prejudiced, intolerant media now targeting white high schoolers for wearing MAGA hats? Sure looks like it. We marvel over the hate-filled pathologies of our increasingly disturbed mainstream media. How brainwashable are the connoisseurs of their nonsense? How much more can the masses take? The real-world effects of delusion. Meanwhile, on account of the ongoing Government Shutdown, President Trump cancels Speaker Pelosi's plans to travel abroad on a U.S. military airplane. Totally brilliant move, we say. Could Chuck & Nancy be using their "Shutdown Narrative" as a distraction from the real SpyGate bombshells? Trump wants to negotiate -- but the Democrats really want their Shutdown. Plus, the Gilets Jaunes of France mark their 10th consecutive week of protesting the Globalist Macron. Don't Believe What They Say. Love Is All Around. The Songs of 1975. With Listener Calls & Music via R.E.M., Zara Larsson, Autour de Lucie, Paul Simon and The Pirouettes.
President Trump's Non-Stop Political War for Survival. Luckily, a war he can win. Can our corrupt Ruling Class be overthrown peacefully? We may be finding out soon enough. We thoroughly debunk the latest gratuitous New York Times faux-bombshell regarding the FBI's counterintelligence investigation into Trump. Caught red-handed, the FBI now attempts to justify its egregious activities by claiming they suspected Trump was "working for Russia." The stated FBI rationales for their suspicions are so pathetic and so paltry as to be nonexistent. Deep State malfeasance -- and incompetence -- has risen to new levels. Devin Nunes and Tucker Carlson respond appropriately. Trump calls the NYT story "a great insult." Meanwhile, we also debunk a new Washington Post story claiming Trump "concealed details" of his face-to-face meetings with Putin. We analyze Strobe Talbott's blatantly hypocritical paranoia herein. Could it be the U.S. Foreign Policy Establishment has been having a hard time "manipulating" Trump? We contemplate the weird Deep State frenzies over Trump communicating with Putin. Plus, we detail multiple specific Trump policies that have been extremely tough on Russia. Zero compromise here, folks. Also, sampling Trump's high energy interview with Judge Jeanine Pirro. Good genes, FISA declassification and exposing corruption about certain people that "nobody ever thought possible." Tantalizing. Happy Warriors. The declining health of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Macron's French police now carrying machine guns against Gilets Jaunes protestors. Anti-war Hawaiian Democrat Tulsi Gabbard running for president -- big headaches ahead for the Democratic War Party.

Sacred Song from Alan Jackson.
Reasserting American Sovereignty. Demolishing the Administrative State. A visit with Julie Ponzi, Senior Editor of American Greatness. Charting a path forward for what was once known as The Conservative Movement. Where did our old think tanks drop the ball? Were they successful at conserving much of anything? Our notes on the timely demise of The Weekly Standard. Meanwhile, President Trump stands on the verge of a much needed "twofer" victory on border security and the Democratic "shutdown strategy." We listen to Trump discuss the "humanitarian crisis" on the border along with related "national security" vulnerabilities. Should Trump simply declare a "national emergency" and have the U.S. Military build The Wall? Not quite yet, he says, but it may happen soon. Plus, seeing through The Matrix. MSM propaganda hitting a fever pitch -- which is what it's supposed to look like when the swamp is getting drained. Also, commemorating the 50th Anniversary of Led Zeppelin's landmark debut album. How Many More Times. With Listener Calls & Music via Kenny Chesney, Led Zeppelin and Nina Simone.
Opening Monologues. High Noon on the Government Shutdown. The full-throttle showdown we've been needing, right here and right now. America First v. America Last. President Trump steadfast for Strong Border Security, as embalmed Democrats Chuck & Nancy offer their stiff, wooden defense of Wide Open Borders. Who will flinch first? A significant plurality of the American People see a "crisis" on the Southern Border. We're on the right side of history, and we can win this one. Trump approvals reaching all-time highs. MSM applying pressure to Establishment Republicans, who need to realize they're sealing their doom if they cave -- Republican voters not in the mood for RINO caving. Is Sen. Cory Gardner aware of this? Meanwhile, CNN's Jim Acosta strolls the border with his Selfie Stick. CNN's uncaring Ana Navarro files her nails on live television, during a discussion of illegal alien criminality. Plus, narrative engineers at CNN rebuff a San Diego television reporter for describing the effectiveness of Border Walls. Democrats walking the plank? With Listener Calls & Music via Cat Stevens, Chris Cornell, Dwight Yoakam and the Electric Light Orchestra.
Twisted GOP Dynamics. An attempt to explain why big ticket Republican Establishment Losers have kept on attacking President Trump for his winning ways. McCain, Romney and Ryan. We venture beyond mere psychosis and pettiness unto the deeper realms of political illusion. What if -- up until Trump broke through -- our whole political system had become a bogus, rigged contrivance? A racket? We examine how Unelected Elites had very nearly devised an electoral system such that they could not lose, and could in fact win by losing with controlled opposition. Experts at offering false hope to the masses, at channeling nationalist GOP Base energy down dead end rabbit hole "investigations." From muzzling the Tea Party to muzzling the MAGA Movement, we dissect ongoing Establishment Games. Meanwhile, we review Brandon Weichert's American Greatness essay "The Conservative Coward Caucus." We sample Tucker Carlson's brilliant diatribe against the out of touch Ruling Class. Globalists destroying the Golden Goose, mistaking market capitalism for a religion, provoking a now furious rebellion from their subjects. Normal Americans seeking a fair, decent and cohesive country. Families First. The secret to staving off Socialism. Escalating tensions in France, the Gilets Jaunes still protesting the besieged unpopular Macron. The toujours l'audace of Georges Danton.
