Opening Monologue. The Trump Trade Wars. A photo for the ages, President Trump sits like a boss at G-7 Summit in Canada. Owns the room in the long overdue fight for the American Middle Class. Establishment Globalists recoil in unison, with angry rhetoric from all the usual suspects including Pelosi, Schumer, McCain and Sasse. Elites prefer their old "rules based international order" because they created those rules, and derive near-exclusive benefit from them. Serving as predictable extension of Establishment Power, we review the MSM's allergy to substance in its reporting on Trade. Meanwhile, Trump holds masterful press conference in Canada, offers relevant information to a hostile reporter "so you can tell that to your fake friends at CNN." We remark on the "picking fights" strategy of Brennan, Clapper & Comey -- as their geese get cooked. Also, trading McDonald's for Nukes with North Korea. Something Big going on in Singapore. Plus, a review of the Western Conservative Summit and conversation on the Republican gubernatorial primary. With Listener Calls & Music via Tom Petty, Sigrid, the Alexandrov Ensemble and Dwight Yoakam.
