Mark speaks with author, attorney, and climate expert Christopher C. Horner over at the Government Accountability Office. It seems as if everyone who supports defeating climate change blames President Trump for hurricanes when it's, in fact, hurricane season. Also, Mark continues to metaphorically destroy the California State Senate and State Assembly for its continued support for Lorena Gonzalez's authored bill to basically make independent contractors "employees" and give them benefits when most ICs are okay with how the system is at the moment.
Mark catches up with "Papa" Doug Manchester, who is President Trump's nominee to be the U.S. Ambassador to the Bahamas. Hurricane Dorian has just decimated the islands and it's imperative that we pray and continue to provide aid to the Bahamas, according to Manchester. Also, Tim Graham (Executive Editor, NewsBusters.org) checks in with a couple pieces on the media's continuous overreaction related to President Trump and Hurricane Dorian, and background checks on guns, and who knows what else.

Tom Del Becarro (PoliticalVanguard.com) shines a light on the latest coming out of Sacramento as lawmakers continue to try and get legislation passed to make it easier for unions to form inside companies like Uber and Lyft and get rid of the "gig economy" as people are able to use the flexibility of their own schedule to make money.
Mark checks in yet again with his favorite economist Stephen Moore on the claims from Bernie Sanders in terms of the top 3 wealthiest people in the United States have more net worth than the bottom half of the American population. We also get more analysis on AB 5 in Sacramento that has a high likelihood of passing much to the chagrin of freedom-loving residents, and how California wants to overhaul charter schools.
California State Senator Brian Jones joined Mark for an in-depth conversation on Assembly Bill 5 that would limit when businesses could classify employees as independent contractors. This includes workers from hairstylists to ride-share drivers. AB 5 was authored by Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez. She says the workers should be entitled to things like sick time, paid family leave and workers compensation.... Some ride-share drivers believe AB 5 will limit their ability to earn what they want and when they want. Also, former FBI Director James Comey was found by an independent watchdog group from the Inspector General's office to have made multiple violations and set dangerous examples for government employees. We get perspective from former United States Attorney General Ed Meese on this and how far it might go.
Mark visits once again with Lord John Taylor of Warwick from the House of Lords in Parliament over in England. They discuss the permission the Queen gave newly-elected Prime Minister Boris Johnson to allow Brexit to be carried out. This would have far greater ramifications than on the domestic side for the Brits and it involves trade with the United States as well.
Mark examines the latest breaking news from the Inspector General's report on how former FBI Director James Comey violated many rules in leaking albeit unclassified information to the press in hopes to spark an investigation into President Trump. He, being Comey, however, will not be facing any charges whatsoever from the Department of Justice. We get analysis from Mark as well as NewsMax.com's James Hirsen. Jean Schulz, widow of Peanuts creator Charles Schulz, provides a great perspective, as well as a cool promotion for those who are attending Burning Man this week, and the importance of why Peanuts is still important today.
Mark chimes in with David Bossie, President of Citizens United, and President Donald Trump's former deputy campaign manager, and the two of them go at it with lobbing insight after insight on the "polls" that show the top Democratic candidates who could square off against President Trump in his re-election effort, and why almost no challenger stands a chance at defeating President Trump.

They discuss the latest changes and setbacks as it pertains to the TransNet congestion fees and projects for freeways that just seem to have dates being changed like it's going out of style. Also, Tim Graham (Executive Editor, NewsBusters.org) chimes in on the latest news involving President Trump and how Democrats are so up in arms about Attorney General William Barr has booked a holiday party at President Trump's hotel in Washington, D.C.
Mark is really curious about how kids are doing in school (after ONE day) since a few San Diego Unified schools have instituted new start times for 8:30 in the morning... does this mean kids will stay up later playing video games? Who's to say? Also, the networks are going ga-ga over Taylor Swift's performance and speech last night at the VMAs in calling out the White House on LGBTQ policies.
Mark checks back in with Scott Sherman on the San Diego City Council on the ridiculousness of local government and awful appropriations of taxpayer money, including how council members are finally understanding the idea of how taxpayer money is not the council's money to do with however they wish. We also get a visit from Alice Stewart over at CNN. She's a political commentator and the former communications director for both Ted Cruz and Mike Huckabee. They speak on the latest poll that has Joe Biden in third place and wonder if he's really ready to cut his teeth in this 2020 presidential campaign.

Apparently there was a lone protester camping outside the White House lawn calling President Trump anything and everything in the insult dictionary.

What do Gavin Newsom and the state of California have in common? Lots of things, but probably not for the better. We get the latest from Mark as he talks with the man who used to hold the "nuclear football" for President Clinton in Lt. Col. (Ret.) Buzz Patterson.
So, President Trump continues to be public enemy #1, or at least to Democrats and progressives, when the POTUS announces a new plan to help curtail illegal immigration and how they're trying to accommodate migrants in shelters at the border. Kate Obenshain (Young America's Foundation) and Tim Graham (NewsBusters.org) shine a light on how the mainstream media continue to excoriate the President but also continue to lack facts and neutral journalism...
