Backbone Radio with Matt Dunn — February 11, 2018 — HR 2

February 11, 2018

A Visit with Paterfamilias John Andrews, former President of the Colorado Senate and Speechwriter for President Nixon. Comparing Russiagate with Watergate, and contrasting the roles played by the Mainstream Media. In spite of intense Democrat devotion to the "sanctity of the FBI," we consider it our American civic duty to criticize the FBI when necessary -- such as it is right now. Additional notes on the Bloated Budget Bill recently passed into law. Meanwhile, we discuss the opening of the Winter Olympics in South Korea, where Coloradoan Red Gerard has already won Gold. Backbone Host describes his surprise visit to a "Dog Farm" in South Korea, and we puzzle over CNN's offering of praise for the sister of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. Also, Colorado Senator Cory Gardner works to block Trump appointments to the DOJ. Really? Vignettes on Valentine's Day and "Support Hamsters." Plus, from the graveside of poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, an Ode to the West Wind. With Listener Calls & Music via R.E.M., Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Eagles, Elvis Presley and Bobby Darin.
