Episode Info: With two monster hurricanes in the Atlantic, one about to engulf Florida, a third one in the Gulf about to strike Mexico, and Houston still fighting unprecedented flood damage and disaster after Harvey, a magnitude 8 earthquake struck off the coast of Mexico late Thursday night, killing more than 50 and leading one wise Twitterer to note: "All that's missing is the locusts." On today's show (after marveling at Ronald Reagan's greatest lie -- particularly pungent on a day like today) we check in with our friend Nicole Sandler, host of 'The Nicole Sandler Show', just north of Miami, where she and her family, unable to evacuate, are hunkering down before Hurricane Irma rolls ashore. Other radio hosts in the South Florida area, like con-man Rush Limbaugh, are apparently lucky and wealthy enough to be able to evacuate at the last moment, even after spending the week downplaying the threat of the record Category 5 storm, and the last several decades downplaying the threat of climate change by disinforming millions of Americans about it over our taxpayer-owned public airwaves. Then, speaking of taxpayer-subsidized disinformation, the head of Trump's so-called "Election Integrity" Commission, Kansas Sec. of State Kris Kobach, has built his career on lying to Americans about the myth of voter fraud in hopes of disenfranchising as many of them (at least of a certain party) as he can get away with.  A new report finds his state has been discarding ballots at an alarming rate. At the same time, just days before the Commission he co-chairs is set to hold a public meeting in New Hampshire, Kobach unleashes a whopper of a scam column at the wingnut "news" site Breitbart, citing new "evidence" proving that "voter fraud" by illegal out-of-state voters was responsible for Republicans losing the U.S. Senate in New Hampshire last year, as well as Donald Trump losing the state to Hillary Clinton.  As we detail on today's show, Kobach's argument is easily dispelled nonsense. Getting those facts to the dupes, pawns, suckers and chumps who actually trust the fake news that is peddled by liars like Brietbart, Fox "News", Limbaugh and Kobach is a different matter altogether. Finally, we close with a bit of listener response on a recent show about Trump overturning DACA...Read more »
