Backbone Radio with Matt Dunn - December 23, 2018 - HR 1
Opening Monologues. World Peace for Christmas. War Is Over. On The Verge of The Wall. Government Shuts Down. All kinds of great stocking stuffers headed into the holidays. President Trump announces American troops coming home from Syria and Afghanistan. So maybe our wars don't always have to be endless? Neoconservative Bill Kristol has another cow. The Military Industrial Complex goes apoplectic. Secretary of Defense Jim "Mad Dog" Mattis resigns, along with grandstanding Obama holdover Brett McGurk. But surely most Americans -- including peaceniks, pacifists, flower children, monks, nuns and Buddhists -- will be uniting in peace-loving joy. Meanwhile, Trump fights for border security against the "weird passion" for wide open borders shared by Chuck Schumer & Nancy Pelosi. A bit of stressful "careening" from Trump along the way this week, but once again we thankfully arrive at the proper destination. The sovereignty battles we want, the battles MAGA can win. Whose borders shall we protect? Our own for once? Time for Mitch McConnell to fight for The Wall the way he fought for Kavanaugh. Plus, amazing new Gallup polling data shows Trump has earned 93% popularity with Republican Women and has achieved the highest intra-party approvals of any president in American history. Wow. Also, another Christmas Yodel and notes on The Weezer Thing. With Listener Calls & Music via John Lennon, Riders In the Sky, the Smithereens, Jo Stafford, Sheryl Crow and Weezer.
