A critique of David Brooks' ostensibly conservative commentary in the New York Times. A prime specimen of the "solipsistic bubble" now inhabited by the American Ruling Class. Are Establishment pundits like Brooks lashing out more than usual as they lose their standing? Are certain GOP commentators now becoming irrelevant? Also, we explore the apparent collapse of the Scott Walker campaign. Perhaps related to behind-the-scenes manipulations from billionaires? Meanwhile, Trump reiterates his plans to build a "wall" and states it will take about "18 months" to get illegal immigrants to leave the country. Plus, we offer further review of the European "refugee" crisis. Should America and Europe be obligated to take in large amounts of Middle Eastern and African refugees? Is "liberalism" in some ways the ideology of "suicide" for Western Civilization? With music and listener calls.
