The Insufferable James Comey. Analysis and rebuke of Comey's low blow op-ed in today's Washington Post. Proclaiming his own victimhood, even in the aftermath of the scathing IG Horowitz Report. Thus Comey joins other Coup Plotters -- including Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page and Glenn Simpson -- in declaring themselves the real victims of SpyGate. A fallback position of last resort. Which means AG Barr & John Durham must be getting close to the Truth. Plus, we review career FBI Agent James Watt's sense of revulsion over the immense "magnitude of wrongdoing" within Comey's FBI. Also, correcting the record on Auld Lang Syne. Some notes on radio production inside baseball. With Listener Calls & Music via Dave Edmunds, Kid Rock, Chris Isaak and the Beach Boys.

Undaunted Trump Cracking the Deep State. Strong Character Prevailing over the Six Ways From Sunday crowd. Detailing the extended "cloud" tactics of Pelosi's "Rolling Impeachment." How long will this charade go on? As long as Democrats can get away with it, says Kimberley Strassel in the Wall Street Journal. We advise Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans to start the trial immediately, kick the fraud right back where it came from. Meanwhile, we delve into the burgeoning California homelessness crisis. Will President Trump intervene to help solve California Democrats' problems with human waste? Does Confederate California wish to remain a part of the Union? Plus, we review Democrat Mike Bloomberg's exploitation of "prison labor" to make calls for his presidential campaign. Not a good look for Billionaire Bloomberg. Somehow still not catching on with the base? Also, our notes on the increasing fatigue of MSM propagandists. The tragedies of disinformation. With Listener Calls & Music via Skeeter Davis, Tove Lo and Gram Parsons.
Dirty Spooks Fearing The Beard. Latest SpyGate Developments. We review Fusion Natasha Bertrand's article in today's Politico, in which Deep State operatives push CIA Director Gina Haspel to obstruct the John Durham investigation into the disgraced John Brennan. Quite the spectacle, nervous spooks begging for Haspel's disobedience, hoping to maintain the CIA as an unaccountable government unto itself. Meanwhile, we conduct an important conversation into The Art and Science of Deep State Propaganda. The mechanics of manufacturing "Clouds of Suspicion" against political opponents. Our retrospective on the multiple fraudulent "Clouds" crafted by the "Six Ways from Sunday" crowd, then deployed against Donald Trump, and then sustained in the atmosphere for as long as possible. The list includes Russian Collusion, the Steele Dossier, the Intelligence Community Assessment, the Mueller Investigation and now the extended Pelosi Impeachment. See how all this works? The brutal game of power, leverage and false narratives in today's Spook Media. The evident imperative to cover up the rampant spying criminality and corruption of the Obama Era. Fortunately, President Trump has carried on unintimidated, undaunted -- impervious to the IC shakedowns. Amazing. Plus, vignettes on Dante and Disney's Frozen 2.

Notes on the ongoing debate between Globalism and Nationalism in Western Civilization. With Listener Calls & Music via The Byrds and Chris Stapleton.
Fearing The Beard. Here Comes John Durham. The New York Times fires a tepid warning shot at Federal Prosecutor Durham, revealing significant Deep State concern with his expanding "criminal" probe into the Origins of SpyGate. Durham has already taken IG Horowitz to task on FBI "predication" for Crossfire Hurricane, and we also know that Durham is investigating John Brennan, James Clapper and Stefan Halper. Plus, we now learn that Durham has been meeting regularly with former NSA Director Mike Rogers -- the "Rosetta Stone" of SpyGate. Commentator Joe diGenova describes the news of Durham working with Rogers as the "single most important development" to date. Meanwhile, we sample an old Admiral Rogers' speech offering profound thanks to his good friend and mentor General Michael Flynn. How nervous is the Deep State again?
