Democrats Still Deny The Obama Administration Spied On Trump

On today’s show, we get into yesterday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing with Attorney General William Barr and how Democrats didn’t lay a glove on him.

We also talk about former FBI director James Comey’s self-indulgent op-ed in the New York Times, the government’s $2 trillion infrastructure proposal and tax increase proposal scam, and 2020 contendor Amy Klobuchar’s insane idea for federal funding of campaigns.

Listen to the show:

What’s in a word? Turns out, a lot, especially when that word is “spied” and it’s used to accurately describe what the intelligence community did to the Trump campaign under President Barack Obama.

Yet the mention of that fact sends not only Democrats but journalists into a tizzy — even though journalists used that word repeatedly to describe what the Obama administration did when they didn’t think it mattered. We have the audio of all of it.

James Comes is back, or more accurately: won’t go away. He wrote a self-indulgent piece in the Times about how President Donald Trump eats souls. Yes, that’s what he wrote. We mock it accordingly.

Democrats and the White House have reportedly agreed on a deal to spend $2 trillion on infrastructure. To pay for it, there is a push to raise the gas tax. Both parties love hidden taxes like the gas tax and boondoggles like “infrastructure” bills. We explain why.

Minnesota Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar has a crazy idea to “get money out of politics”: taking our money and giving it back to us in the form of vouchers. That way, we can it give back to politicians for their campaigns. It’s as crazy as it sounds and would cost more than $82 billion. Nuts.
