It appears Trump realizes the error of taking on China alone, so he's working to assemble a coalition of nations to fight his trade war with him.
Larry Kudlow is out carrying the president's water, making the case that this is all China's fault for abusing the US for years.
It doesn't matter who's to blame, the one thing you can be sure of is this war will hurt everyone. Remember, nobody wins a trade war.
The goal is to solidify ties between the three nations to exert influence over Syria and the Middle East.
While America is making enemies of friends, Russia is doing the opposite.

It's not hard to tell what today's show is going to be about. I happened to go to the DMV yesterday to get a new Drives License. It turns out; I didn't even make it in the door. The line was down around the block at 3 in the afternoon.
No private company would survive if it treated it's customers the way the DMV treats its citizens. It's pathetic and the perfect example of what a government protected monopoly looks like.

I wish that headline was clickbait, but it's not. The Russians and Chinese governments have now met to both announce their solidarity with one another and inform "western powers" that their militaries are close.
This new deepening of ties between Russia and China is a direct result of Trump's actions against China and NATOs actions along the Russian border.
Is Trump playing a Regan era game that will end with a stronger America or is he setting us on a course toward another world war? I don't know. But I don't think this will end the way Trump wants.

We had an incredible event this weekend at the State Social House in Hollywood. I'm not sure what our actual headcount was but I know it was standing room only, and it was a great get together. We're already planning the next one.
Today I've got Dr. Drew Pinsky on the show. Dr. Drew has been a huge advocate for changing the way we administer and prescribe opioids.
And here's a shocker...
He self-identifies as a libertarian!
If you want to find out more about Dr. Drew and what he's doing you can check him out at the links below.

In my effort to raise awareness for some of the liberty leaning political voices in America today I sometimes hit a home run, and other times I get a wishy-washy liberty candidate.
My job, as I see it, is to present the candidate to you and challenge their positions. I hope that YOU, the listener, will walk away with enough information to ascertain whether the candidate is someone you could vote for.
Today I've got Geoffrey Diehl; he's a sitting state representative who's running against Elizabeth Warren for her Senate seat this year.
Warren will likely make a run at the presidency in 2020, but she's not going to give up her seat without a fight.
Give today's show a listen and then let me know what you think of Geoffrey.

I've said many times that companies have no power over you. They can't compel you to use their services or force you to buy from them...
At least not without the help of government.
Today I've got a story that will make your blood boil. It's about a dental practice in Pennsylvania that is sending threating letters to parents who don't bring their children in for follow up appointments.
The letter threatens to contact the State if they don't respond.
You can imagine the uproar this has caused, but you won't believe the response from the owner. It's a show you don't want to miss.
Lots of great stuff on the show today. Listen now!

I'm shocked nobody in the MSM sees what's happening. I guess I shouldn't be. They're normally asleep at the wheel, but for all of you regular listeners of the show, YOU should see what's happening.
I have always said North Korea is a rational actor and Kim is not crazy. I've explained that the reason Kim wants nukes is that he wants to be treated as a legitimate power and a world player.
Phase 1 was to get a nuke, and a means to deliver it. Phase 2 is all about optics. Letting the world know that they are not savages or tyrants but rather a legitimate world power that deserves respect.
He recently met secretly with President Xi of China. The meeting was only announced AFTER it happened and there's lots of footage of Kim and Xi looking diplomatic.
Next Kim will meet with the South Koreans followed by a potential meeting with Trump.
This is a game. A game I will admit Kim seems to be playing to perfection. I'm actually intrigued to see how much of my theory proves true and how the pieces of this political chess match organize themselves.

You may believe the best use of our time and political capital would be best spent debating the merits of giving the homeless shotguns to defend themselves.
If that's you, this podcast is not for you.
If, on the other hand, you want a solution to get a portion of the homeless off the street then I've got an idea for you.
It requires people to actually DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT but its a simple, free-market solution to help give people a hand up and boost our economy at the same time.

I have a fascinating guest today that will take us away from politics on a day when the most significant news story is a single sexual encounter, 12 years ago, between a porn star and the president.
Perry Marshall is the author of several books including
The 80/20 Rule
I know Perry from his extensive work and research in marketing. When I heard he'd written a book on evolution that takes a more rational and skeptical view (of both sides) I thought, "I've got to get him on the show."
I think you'll find our conversation enlightening.

I'm not sure how to say this...
Don't doubt me.
Yesterday on the show I told you the idea China would back down in the face of Trump's new tariffs was foolish. That's not the way this game is played.
Instead the Chinese have responded with the threat of their own tariffs, mostly on American agricultural products.
Granted, it's not much, but the Chinese position is clear. "If you mess with us, we'll mess with you."

John is everything we hate about modern neoconservatism. He, along with guys like Lindsey Graham and John McCain has never seen a war they didn't think was worth sending someone else to fight.
John on the other hand, effectively dodged the draft by joining the National Guard with his generation's fool crazed war was happening. It turns out he didn't want to go off and die for some politicians foolish war either.
I've got no respect for a man like Bolton. He's been on the wrong side of history continuously and hasn't so much as admitted he's wrong...ever!
He's dangerous, and now he's got the presidents ear.
