  • Did Rosenstein secretly record Trump for 25th Amendment?
    Did Rosenstein suggest secretly recording Trump for 25th Amendment? Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is refuting a report from the New York Times that suggests he wanted to secretly record President Donald Trump in an effort to prove he is no longer fit to hold the role as President, triggering the 25th Amendment. The Times reports that Rosenstein made the suggestion after Trump's decision to fire James Comey. In his denial, Rosenstein said: “The New York Times’s story is inaccurate and factually incorrect. I will not further comment on a story based on anonymous sources who are obviously biased against the department and are advancing their own personal agenda.” Rosenstein continued: But let me be clear about this: “Based on my personal dealings with the president, there is
  • Why Trump’s tweets were wrong and dangerous
    Well, it was a good run. For Trump to go five whole days without victimizing Ford was a monumental effort. In fact, it may have been a Guinness World Record. But we all knew what he was really thinking and we all knew that he would eventually break and reveal his true colors. He has just thrown every victim who did not report the attack the very next day under the bus. How did we get here, according to ABC? President Donald Trump, called out Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, by name and is questioning her account of an alleged sexual assault by Kavanaugh 36 years ago based on the fact that she didn't report the incident at the time.

  • What did Michael Cohen tell Mueller? What does it mean for Trump?
    President Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, participated over the last month in multiple interview sessions lasting for hours with investigators from the office of special counsel, Robert Mueller, sources tell ABC News. ABC’s Aaron Katersky joins us to bring you the latest. This could mean nothing or it could mean everything… Only time will tell.

  • What did we learn from the most recent shootings
    What are the commonalities of the three most recent shootings? People want to turn and blame guns again. Guns don’t shoot people, people shoot people. Instead, we need to focus on mental health. People with a mental health need to go through due process and we need to establish “red flag” laws. Even though I’m an American and I have the right to a gun, I don’t want my rights to be limited by the few who abuse those rights.

  • Why is Facebook creating a war room?
    This week in the JayMac snack, we discuss Facebook creating a war room to fight back against election interference. In addition, John Hancock life insurance is willing to give discounts to people to provide their smartwatch activity. Finally, a group of heroic marines runs into a burning building to save senior citizens. Facebook is getting a "War Room." Why, you ask? To prevent Russian meddling in the mid-term elections.  Doesn't this bring everybody comfort? This is Facebook, the social media website at a college to let you vote on who is hot and who is not is now responsible for monitoring election interference.  Their goal is to stop foreign interference with the upcoming election.  Unbelievable.  JayMac News Show is usually hosted by KSL News Radio's Jay McFarland, who also hosts
  • Why we need to talk about the recent shootings
    Although the Maryland shooting is a terrible situation, I can’t be more grateful that law enforcement has been able to respond to these situations as quickly as they did. I struggle with the fact that it is my job to report the news, especially when it is a mass shooting. However, ignoring these shootings do not work either.

  • Why we shouldn't brush off Kavanaugh's accuser
    Our judicial system does not rely simply on the memory of the people involved. I’m not prepared to believe either Kavanaugh or Dr. Ford, so that leaves me at an impasse, and I can’t punish someone because I do believe in innocent until proven guilty.  JayMac News Show is usually hosted by KSL News Radio's Jay McFarland, who also hosts the fictional podcast, Hosts of Eden.

  • Are Democrats just stalling on Kavanaugh until the midterms?
    The clock is ticking. The midterms are coming up and the Democrats are in prevent defense. Do people care whether this happened or not? Or do they only care who wins the game?   JayMac News Show is usually hosted by KSL News Radio's Jay McFarland, who also hosts the fictional podcast, Hosts of Eden.

  • How the police responded to the recent shootings over the last 24 hours?
    We need to talk about the recent shootings because they’ve all been done with a handgun, not a semi-automatic rifle. This clearly shows that the argument that we semi-automatic rifles are the problem in these shootings is just not true. I think we have to be honest in this debate about the focus on the type of weapon. I don't know how we stop these from continuing but I don't think ignoring the problem is the answer.    JayMac News Show is usually hosted by KSL News Radio's Jay McFarland, who also hosts the fictional podcast, Hosts of Eden.
