Backbone Radio with Matt Dunn - April 7, 2019 - HR 1
Opening Monologues. The Excruciating MSM Holding Pattern. Downbeat Democrats pinned between the desolate Mueller Summary and the pending release of the fuller Mueller Report. At the moment, they have nothing to go on. Thus they watch helplessly as they lose control of The Narrative and further brace themselves for Devin Nunes' upcoming criminal referrals. Meanwhile, Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen announces her departure from the Department of Homeland Security. President Trump, planning a "tougher direction" on border security, asked today for Nielsen's resignation. We sample Trump's commentary on border issues from his Friday speech in Las Vegas, after having visited the wall near Calexico, California. Lieutenant General Todd Semonite, chief of the Army Corps of Engineers, describes progress and plans for the construction of 450 miles of new border wall by December 2020. We outline Trump's sterling maneuver to install 750 more border agents at ports of entry, a mechanism for snarling border traffic at the direct expense of Mexico. De facto border closure? The Great Avocado Crisis. Plus, we review nice new numbers from the growing MAGA Economy as Trump hits 51% approvals. Lowest unemployment in 50 years and continued solid wage growth for the Middle Class. Also, media scrambles to defend the "oddly affectionate" Joe Biden, whose potential presidential campaign is already on the rocks. In addition, our updates on the improving health of Mick Jagger, successful surgery in New York City. American Rock 'n Roll. The Rubberband Man. Tumbling Dice. With Listener Calls & Music via Kid Rock, The Spinners and the Rolling Stones.
