Let the Sunshine In. We celebrate the arrival of sunlight into the formerly shadowy corners of American political life. Rep. Matt Gaetz describes the Mueller Investigation as "a lie built on a foundation of corruption." Dr. Sebastian Gorka says the Schumer Shutdown is a case of Democrats prioritizing "illegal immigrants" over Americans. OMB Director Mick Mulvaney says Sen. Schumer needs to "up his game." We review Trump's new advertisement for "The Wall" and first-year anniversary as President. CNN's panel of Democrats in Ohio say Trump's first year has been "fantastic." We mark the fifth anniversary of DNI James Clapper's perjury. Meanwhile, rather than apologize for his false accusations against Trump's mental acuity, MSNBC's Joe Scarborough goes full anti-science and attacks Trump's doctor -- Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson -- as a "political hack." Professor Niall Ferguson advises MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle to "chill." Flake Summons Stalin. Musical Tributes to the departed Dolores O'Riordan of the Cranberries, and Johnny Hallyday of France. With Listener Calls & Music via Astrid, the Fifth Dimension, Fleetwood Mac and Kesha. Sacred Song from Elvis Presley. Luke 8:16, Ephesians 5:11.
The DiGenova Interview. We conduct a segmental interpretation of former federal prosecutor Joe DiGenova's phenomenal Saturday conversation with the Daily Caller. Key details on the attempted Deep State Coup against President Trump. Addressing the fundamentals of the "FISA Abuse" scandal presently engulfing the FBI and DOJ. Outlining the mechanism for "Intelligence Laundering" via outside contractors. Possibly Fusion GPS and Crowdstrike? DiGenova considers the Russian Narrative a "complete fabrication" designed by Democrats to "dirty up" Trump. He describes James Comey as a blackmailer and a "political assassin." With helpful vignettes on the key names involved herein -- Andy McCabe, Bill Priestap, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Sally Yates, Loretta Lynch and John Carlin. Plus, per surveillance abuse, we ask with a song: How Long Has This Been Going On? With Listener Calls & Music via Ace, Cheap Trick, P!nk, Jethro Tull and The Beatles.
Opening Monologue. Release The Memo. Release the Kraken. We chronicle the latest developments in the "biggest political scandal of our lifetimes." House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes has issued a four-page classified "Memo" outlining surveillance abuse and corruption within the DOJ and FBI. House Republicans are clamoring for its public release, revealing their "shock" and "alarm" and generalized exopthalmia. We listen to Democrat Adam Schiff describe his attempts to block the release, while blaming "Russian Bots" for the controversy -- as the Mainstream Media stays silent. We sound notes of caution against "overreach" from conservative commentators, such as Dan Bongino, and review the process for the memo's ultimate release. We sample high-octane audio from Rep. Mark Meadows and Rep. Matt Gaetz. Meanwhile, the FBI now claims to have mysteriously "lost" a trove of text messages between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. Plus, our quick review of the Schumer Shutdown distraction and Trump's "incredible genes." Hat tips to the Conservative Treehouse. With Listener Calls & Music via R.E.M., Louane, Bob Dylan, Ray Price, Pearl Jam, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Jamey Johnson.
Hot on the trail of the Deep State. The grim Glenn Simpson backtracks on key Fusion GPS testimony. Why did Sen. Dianne Feinstein release the transcripts? Rep. Ron DeSantis describes them as "devastating" to supporters of the Dossier. Meanwhile, Sara Carter of Fox News floats a new trial balloon: Was Hillary Clinton "duped" by the Dossier? Will Hillary soon claim to be the 'victim' of her own Dossier? Good grief. Could the American people possibly buy that one? Sidney Powell explains the work of Inspector General Michael Horowitz -- investigating the investigators. We consider the heroism of NSA Director Michael Rogers, whistle-blower on the Obama Administration's illicit spying on Team Trump. Notes on the SCIF, Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility. Plus, a flashback to Devin Nunes' March 2017 press conference which got the balls rolling. Coda: How long has all this surveillance been going on? How far will the Establishment go to preserve their power? With Listener Calls & Music via U2, Thomas Rhett and Reba McEntire.
Preparations for Big Week Ahead. Are the Uranium One, RussiaGate and Trump Dossier angles beginning to overlap? DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz unloads ahead of schedule. First indictment lands in bribery case involving Uranium One and Hillary Clinton. Mark Lambert indicted on 11 counts. We review the background of Alexander Downer, the Australian diplomat with ties to George Papadopoulos, the Clinton Foundation and the sale of Australian uranium to Russia. Meanwhile, musician DJ Moby claims agents from the CIA approached him to help spread the word on Trump colluding with Russia. Seriously? More details emerge on the tentacles of Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson. Sting operation run against Trump? Setup job on infamous Veselnitskaya meeting? We sample commentary from Dan Bongino and speculate as to why the Deep State wants Trump out of office -- and fast. Hello Walls. With Listener Calls & Music via Moby, R.E.M., Bobby Darin, Faron Young, Waylon Jennings and The Beatles.
Opening Monologue. Setting the table on explosive "Deep State" developments. Media distractions intensify, perhaps by correlation. Immigration debate stalls over purported Trump comments about Third World countries. Growing MAGA Trump Economy jeopardizing Democrats' Obama Coalition. Twitter shadow-bans conservatives. Meanwhile, Trump's physician reports the President is "in excellent health." With Listener Calls & Music via The Beatles, Social Distortion and Justin Bieber.
The Deep State Update. Moving forward with what could be evolving into the biggest political scandal in modern American history. We discuss significant recent actions of Admiral Mike Rogers, Director of the National Security Agency. Did Rogers blow the whistle on a planned Deep State Coup? We note that Rogers visited President-Elect Trump in Trump Tower on November 17, 2016 -- without telling his boss DNI James Clapper. The very next day, Trump moved his Transition Team to Bedminster, New Jersey. Soon thereafter, did a flustered Clapper attempt to get Rogers fired? We review Rogers' 2016 request for a "compliance review" of suspicious FISA surveillance. Are the pieces coming together? Advise Read: The Conservative Treehouse. Meanwhile, Nunes gets the full trove, Fusion GPS is ordered to reveal its bank records, and British spy Steele finds himself under criminal investigation. We sample the commentary of Congressman Jim Jordan and Catherine Herridge of Fox News. Plus, we review Europe's "funeral pyre" brought about by its open borders, globalist elites. With Listener Calls & Music via the Black Eyed Peas, Elvis Presley, Patricia Kaas, the Foo Fighters, The Beatles and Reba McEntire.
Michael Wolff psychoanalyzes Trump, and Steve Bannon commits a strangely dishonorable form of seppuku. Our interview with national political commentator Jennifer Kerns. What was Bannon thinking? And why does the ghoulish Wolff suppose his book will bring about the end of the Trump Presidency? Meanwhile, Bandy Lee, a deeply unprofessional Yale Psychiatrist, describes her bizarre plans to physically "contain" Trump and force him to submit to "an evaluation." Although the Media seems in favor, some voices of sanity are responding. Alan Dershowitz compares such psychiatric schemes to the darkest days of the USSR and Mao's China, and CNN's Michael Smercornish adds context with Lincoln, Churchill and Goldwater. Also, we review a list of Deep Staters recently "reassigned" and suggest many more are soon to follow. Plus, a discussion of the real reasons why the Establishment hates Trump. It's not the faux vulgarity -- but rather because he owes them nothing. They can't control the man. With Listener Calls & Music via Johnny Cash, R.E.M., Van Morrison, the Eagles, Dream Academy and The Beatles.
Opening Monologue. Sifting through the Media's gross distractions pertaining to Trump's intelligence and mental health. We marvel at how such monstrous chaff can be rendered with such curious hysteria. While the Media obsesses over the ghastly Michael Wolff's new book, we note they're already seeking distance from its dubious content. Even Maggie Haberman, of the New York Times, describes Wolff's work as partly "flat-out false" and partly "notionally accurate." Notionally? Meanwhile, President Trump describes himself as a "very stable genius" -- and the Media responds, using the words over and again. Also, Senators Grassley and Graham request a criminal investigation into spy Christopher Steele, and the Deep State coughs up 'the whole furball' of information requested by Rep. Devin Nunes. Plus, we review the explosive Stephen Miller interview with Jake Tapper on CNN this morning. Excellent political combat, as Tapper taps out. Coda: The Fall of Steve Bannon. With Listener Calls & Music via Greta Van Fleet, Bobby Darin, Pearl Jam and Social Distortion.
Deconstructing James Clapper, Quinessence of Deep State Physiognamy. Matt Dunn guest hosts the Dan Caplis Show. We survey Clapper's latest CNN commentary, his defense of "career civil servants" and his lectures on "what this country is all about." Alas, America's Founders would have zero regard for Clapper's bogus theorizing. Curiously, however, Clapper throws cold water on the Papadopoulos Ploy. Meanwhile, Sen. Grassley responds sharply to Fusion GPS. Toobin trots out another "authoritarian" canard. And We Ask: Is the Mueller character comparable to "The Wolf" in Tarantino's Pulp Fiction? A Cleaner? How far is the Ruling Class willing to push America in order to retain power? Also, we discuss building "the wall, the wall, the wall" in 2018. Now or never? Rush Limbaugh describes border security as America's most pressing task for survival over the next thirty years. Vignettes on Thomas Jefferson and Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics. With Listener Calls & Music via Louane and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
