Atlas has not "shrugged", but has fallen flat on his face and has been crushed by the weight. The US is now officially just another Banana Republic.. We have a weak AG that looks like he is about to have a nervous breakdown. I was expecting him to cry at yesterday's press conference. Meanwhile, we have a President who cannot even dress himself, lt alone run the show. Which begs the question, who is running the show?

Mark, could you comment on the connection between the Rushdie stabbing--despite trillions spent on Homeland Security and the Global War on Terror since 9/11--and the FBI raid on President Trump's home in Florida, Mar-a-Lago? Does it look to you like Brandon's rapprochement with Iran and surrender to the Taliban in Afghanistan, combined with an anti-Trump jihad by the federal government, might have given them the idea they might be free to act on Rushdie now? Your thoughts?

So, after the stunt the DOJ and FBI pulled this week, one would think the Republicans would do more than simply hold hearings. I am all for defunding the DOJ, the FBI and the IRS completely and abolishing them. Barring that, how else do we fix these decrepit, dirty, stinking rotten agencies?

For all the talk of GOP "extremists" costing Republicans seats in November, we don't hear much about Democratic extremists costing the Democrats.
For example, here in Oregon a "moderate" Dem (Schrader) lost in the primary to a Sandy Cortez clone in my house district, and in two other Oregon house districts similar stories are playing out.
I think this is an under appreciated problem for the Democrats... do you, Mark?

Which of the many reported reasons, if any, do you believe is the truthful reason the FBI raided Trump's residence in Mar-A-Lago?
And does it make sense that the Feds rifled through Mrs. Trump's closet during the raid?

Why is conservative, Inc so incompetent in response to the raid on Trump's home? Just now I read an article on an ostensibly conservative blog that discussed the possibility that the FBI were looking for old nuclear codes Trump carried when he was president. There have been a lot of "if the FBI found x, this is a big story, but if not, then this is looking like the Russian collusion hoax." At this point, can we even believe anything put out by the deep state about anything? Why does conservative, Inc keep taking everything the FBI and the rest of the deep state at face value?

Hi Mark, I see that the useless ConInc grifters are out in full force and have a modest suggestion on how to deal with them: Tell them you planned on giving them lots of money but that after the GOP rolled over and allowed 87,000 new IRS agents to be hired you've decided not to lest you end up receiving a politically motivated audit for having done so.

Busy Friday! The Aloha Snackbar boys ( probably ) get to Salman Rushdie, and an ex-CIA and NSA Director agrees that Trump should be executed. The CDC says vaxxed and unvaxxed Sneetches are now equal. Canadian mandarins might have told the truth under oath that there were no medical recommendations for mandates and if " we knew then what we now now about the vaccine ineffectiveness it would not have been approved for use". I guess they should had at least skimmed the 75,000 pages of 'data' from Pfizer which was pretty clear. Oh well. At least Denmark said no vax for under 18's.

An editorial in this week's New York Post blamed Trump for the Senate passing the $750 billion inflation reduction act. The NY Post argued that after Election Day 2020, Trump was obsessed with his loss and focused solely on his baseless claims that the election was stolen rather than focus on bringing out the vote for the Republicans running the Georgia Senatorial special election. Am I remembering correctly that you were encouraging those of demoralized angry listeners to go out and vote even for the pathetic uninspiring Republican candidates because the Democrats are even worse. I am a MAGA supporter. I am proudly extreme right. It pains me to vote for most Republicans. I was happy they lost in Georgia and I believe even if those republicans won the senatorial election the Senate would have passed some bloated version of that bill. I think that Senate votes are a sham. I believe that behind the scenes most of the Senate is purple. They agree with each other about what they want the outcome to be and count and decide who can vote yay or nay in order to please their constituents. I believe that even if we had two Republican senators from Georgia the bill would have passed. A more left leaning Republican would have taken one for the team and voted for it. What do you think? So many friends tell me they just wish moderates would run for office. I tell them that in my perspective almost everyone in DC is a moderate. They pretty much agree on everything that matters. They play games to get us to be loyal to one side or another but they all just want to steal our money and give it to their friends. I don't want any more moderates in our government. I want MAGA or else I don't care who wins.

Are they any small lights in the world of music these days, whether technologies or innovations that are creating something, either in distribution of beautiful music (like your serenade radio) or in the connecting of young people together to create music?
Lockdown tried to kill music, but could it instead incubate new small choirs, playing round the piano, combos, etc.? The lack of a unifying culture has negatives, but when mass culture is filth, maybe fragmentation breeds art.
My teenage kids and their friends can name you Art Blakey's songs but have no idea who major pop stars are. It's refreshing. Is it utterly rare?

Mark, why would anyone believe a word the FBI/DOJ says?
Recall that then FBI head, Jim Comey, boasted that he arranged a meeting with Trump, ostensibly to warn him about the existence of the Steele Dossier, but in fact to create a justification for the media to run the dossier as a story. All this when he knew it was completely fake. The man was acting as a trusted advisor to the President while in fact plotting to smear him. Was there ever a better example of a lying, traitorous low life than Jim Comey? The fact that he is still a free man, let alone an esteemed member of the intelligence community is reason enough to doubt everything the FBI/DOJ says.

Here goes another attempt! Third time lucky?
My question is not a question, it is a request.
Can you PLEASE invite energy expert and philosopher Alex Epstein on your show to talk about the anti-human madness that is the Zero-Carbon fantasy. No-one is more articulate than Epstein in explaining how the fossil fuels, which the hated CO2 generate as a mere side effect, are probably the single greatest boon for mankind in all history.
In no other field of study, do researchers concentrate exclusively on a negative side-effect of a phenomenon to the complete exclusion of all positive aspects. It is like curing the curse of sudden hair-loss by banning life-saving chemotherapy.
UK audiences in particular need, for their own sakes to get to know Mr Epstein, and your fabulous, ground-breaking show is no better vehicle.
He has written two mind-blowing books, "The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels" and just this year "Fossil Future".
You can reach him at [email protected] or on Twitter at @AlexEpstein.
Looking forward to your interview!

Mark and fellow Club members. What are your thoughts on this push by our betters to rid the world of the internal combustion engine? You've been known to dabble in environmental issues, yet despite all the predictions of doom that never come to pass, all the people who matter seem to be all in global warming as the issue of our times. It seems most major car companies are claiming they will be all electric by 2030 or some other date. Why is it that the CEO's and finance professionals, those who really should know better, seem to leading the march off the cliff?

Perhaps this question would be better directed to your Senior Vice President in Charge of Canadian Content, but anyway, here goes. Having spent nearly four decades of my early years in Canada, I became convinced that Canadians lived by a couple of bedrock principles. One, is that they are not Americans, and two, they will grasp at any hint that foreigners think they are superior to Americans. I think the second principle results from a strong inferiority complex with regard to the States.
However, a long string of abuses and usurpations, most notably the Freedom Convoy (I just got Andrew's book), along with other domestic problems, have shaken this faith. When you combine that with the fact that Canada is bringing up the rear in most OECD rankings for things people actually care about, and it looks like Canada is trying to outrace the Biden administration to Banana Republic status. Despite the fact that Canada and its PM are becoming the butt of jokes around the world, the outlets of their Ministry of Truth at the CBC, The Star, the Globe and Mail, etc. are keeping up a brave face. Do you think that we may finally see the collapse of the Canadian Smugness Bubble? Canada used to have a lot to be proud of, but things will have to change for that to be true again.

The warrant served at Mar-A-Lag is a version of the Russia Hoax. The Hoax caused many a Republican to worry that it had merit, thus paralyzing the administration for two years. Seems the Dems hope the search warrant will create similar angst as we move towards the mid-terms and beyond. If this fails to end Trump, what's next?
