Observations on the "artificial reality" of American discourse. Has the media reached its outer limit for the manufacture of bogus "narratives"? We review breaking details of the Obama Administration's surveillance of Donald Trump. Are matters taking a more ominous turn? The pugnacious Sen. Chuck Grassley wants answers, and has penned a series of intriguing letters of concern about politicized intelligence agencies. Could Andrew McCabe, the FBI's deputy director, be in hot water? Along with certain other high-profile members of the Deep State? We speculate on the "internal battles" now going on within the intelligence community. Meanwhile, Rep. Adam Schiff coughs up another nothingburger, Evelyn Farkas digs deeper and AG Jeff Sessions raises the prospect of "convictions" putting an end to all the leaking. Plus, Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols praises Brexit and the working classes and claims Trump is "absolutely magnificent."
