  • Why I’m being punished by wearing a #MAGA hat
    All last week I couldn’t talk about President Donald Trump because I promised my listeners if they raised enough money for Primary Children’s Hospital then I wouldn’t talk about Trump for an entire week. During my Trump ban, I accidentally said “Trump.” As a repercussion, my listeners and my producers are making me wear a “Make America Great Again” hat. Is America great again yet?

  • How to destroy the right to bear arms
    Lots of people like to blame the guns for mass shootings. Many people think if we ban the AR-15 rifles, we’ll stop shootings. But that’s not how we prevent mass shootings. Most mass shooters don’t even use AR-15 rifles. Do you know what most of the shooters do have in common? Most of them are white males who have mental health issues. I understand the desire to stop mass shootings with AR-15s, but the majority of the shootings haven’t happened with AR-15s. Why are we talking about gun control? Ten people are dead after a gunman opened fire at a Santa Fe school Friday in Texas. Most of those who are deceased were students. Now everyone is either jumping to their polarized gun control stances or they are claiming that it's too soon to talk about how to fix these kinds of tragedies. A

  • The reason this woman was arrested will boil your blood
    A U.S. Customs and Border Protection agent questioned two women for speaking Spanish in line at a gas station in Montana. The women, who are U.S. citizens, were asked for identification and detained for over 35 minutes. One of the women said that when she asked why he wanted to see their IDs, she recorded the agent on a viral video telling her he saw they were speaking Spanish, "which is very unheard of up here." ABC’s Alex Stone joins us. Would this have been the same if they were speaking French?  JayMac News Show is usually hosted by KSL News Radio's Jay McFarland, who also hosts the fictional podcast, Hosts of Eden.

  • Which hunt is the witch hunt?
    President Donald Trump is once again lashing out about the “Witch Hunt” on Twitter. He blamed the FBI of being biased and for investigating his presidential campaign “for political purposes.” Now he’s calling on the Justice Department to open an investigation.

  • The TSA knows if you’ve been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake
    The Transportation Security Administration is introducing a secret “naughty list” to keep track of unruly or impolite passengers. The database, known officially as a “95 list,” is meant to record actions that pose a physical danger to airport security screeners. However, according to an internal directive obtained by The New York Times, “an intent to injure or cause physical pain is not required, nor is an actual physical injury.” So what does it take to land you in the TSA’s doghouse? Swatting away security screeners’ hands? Speaking less than politely to the agent checking your passport? Am I going to get put on a watch list for showing up grumpy to my 4 A.M. flight? The TSA says the list cannot be used to require extra screening at security checkpoints, nor to prevent pa

  • This racist will make you cringe
    While I hesitate to give airtime to idiots, there are times when someone has to say something. The recent viral video of a New York man harassing a group Spanish-speaking workers over their language and nation of origin represents an ugly attitude that has taken root in our country -- that it’s somehow “un-American” to speak another language. In our desire to take pride in our own country and culture, we have allowed the patriotic pendulum to swing too far. “Is [speaking a second language] a crime or a shame? You know what I think is a crime or a shame is people who have another language in their background but they come here and they lose that language. That language should be preserved and taught! Because we’re all better off if we learn different languages.” The JayMac News

  • Why I dread working on school shooting days
    Ten people are dead after a gunman opened fire at a Houston-area high school Friday. Most of those who are deceased were students. Now everyone is either jumping to their polarized gun control stances or they are claiming that it's too soon to talk about how to fix these kinds of tragedies. Are you kidding me? Those who claim it's too soon to chat about solutions are avoiding the issue.
