  • Paying feds with Chicken Nuggets
    White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said instead of a planned bipartisan lunch at the White House today, nine House Republicans are attending as the president tries to build support for funding the border wall with Mexico amid the government shutdown. The White House had invited rank-and-file House Democrats to the lunch as well, but they turned down the invitation.  Meanwhile, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer says the House will not take its scheduled recess next week if the government is still partially shut down. How is this impacting Utahns? I join Jeff Caplan's show. JayMac News Show is usually hosted by KSL News Radio's Jay McFarland, who also hosts the fictional podcast, Hosts of Eden.

  • My daughter evacuated during the Fashion Place shooting. I’m so grateful she's OK
    My daughter was working as a manager at a fast food restaurant at Fashion Place Mall when a shooting broke out just outside. Luckily, she wasn't hurt. Even though she normally doesn't like hugs, my family gave her a ton of hugs last night. I grew up in a world where I didn't have to deal with shootings, active shooters, or gang-related violence in mall parking lots. What's the solution? Comment below.

  • Why Trump gets first “blamses” for shutdown
    I really hoped to come back from the weekend to discover that the government had reopened. But the only thing is that President Donald Trump is backing off on the idea that he could declare a national emergency to build a wall. With both the Republicans and the Democrats vying for power, who is to blame for the shutdown? The response, the majority of Americans say that Trump is responsible. Granted, there is plenty of blame to go around. However, somebody has to get “first blames” and “second blames.” I give the “first blames” to Mr. President himself. There’s simply no argument to be mad that the border wall has to be built right now. In addition, in the continuing resolution, nobody is debating the fact that the people who are supposed to get funding shouldn’t get funding
  • Politician waging war on emotional support peacocks
    Do you remember the emotional support peacock that was denied being allowed on a flight? Or the hamster that a student flushed down the toilet after Spirit Airlines said that it couldn’t ride with her on the plane? Well, one Utah legislator wants to put a stop to anyone who pretends to need an emotional support animal. Rep. James Dunnigan wants to make it illegal to pretend to have an emotional support animal. I don’t know if we need the law to regulate these kinds of things. However, I do think too many people are getting emotional support animal certificates off of the internet. Do you really think that it would be OK to put on sunglasses, grab a cane and pretend to be blind? No. Never. But that’s what it’s like when you pretend to need emotional support animals.   JayMac News S
  • Scientists stumped by radio waves from space
    It’s Monday, which means it’s time for the JayMac Science Class. Scientists intercepted repeating radio waves from space. Does this mean we’re being contacted by aliens? A second mysterious repeating fast radio bursts. Typically, the we get radio waves that bounce around everywhere in space, which is just noise. But when something is repeating over and over again in the same way to generate that signal, is that some sort of intelligent being trying to communicate with us Earthlings? Later in the segment, we discuss the very real impacts of climate change. Luke Gangi-Wellman joins us from The Leonardo, which is a science and art museum in Salt Lake City.
