Grace and Connor discuss Jason Chaffetz's book, The Deep State: How an Army of Bureaucrats Protected Barack Obama and Is Working to Destroy the Trump Agenda. How the deep state meaning has changed from just government employees to include politicians. Yellow Vest Movement and current Trudeau scandal to rock Canada. Comparisons to the Clintons and how they all seem to be untouchable or unprosecutable under the law.
Grace and Connor review the book, Hillbilly Elegy, by J. D. Vance. Poverty, race, pessimism, marriage, and drug abuse, among working class whites and how they choose to support Trump. The book is about to be made into a Netflix movie directed by Ron Howard.

On today's show: Jordan Peterson '12 Rules for Life' - Dueling Dialogues Ep.154
Grace and Conor review anti PC and Canadian, Jordan Peterson's book, 12 Rules for Life an Antidote to Chaos. Peterson makes sense of the crazy world we live in. Trudeau's approval rating tanks amid scandal. Trudeau fired AG Jody Wilson-Raybould allegedly because she refused to be influenced on SNC-Lavalin criminal trial. The company is charged with allegedly defrauding Libya of well over $100 million, alleged illegal donations to the Liberal party. SNC-Lavalin's biggest shareholders are the Quebec civil servant union and Saudi Arabia. Chief advisor to Trudeau, Gerald Butts, recently resigned. Liberals unanimously vote to keep the investigation closed to the public, Wilson-Raybould abstains from voting with her party and she hires ex-supreme court justice as legal council on what she can and cannot say.
We live with a certain expectation about the possibility of

would be remiss if I did not warn; unlike Grisham’s, the crime against the
child in The Neon Lawyer is

"Authors have written of the darkness since chisel was first taken to stone, and all have carried a single theme; Darkening Danger. Poe said it best; "Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, and dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before."
With Darkening Danger, Sammy Sutton takes it one step further and gives us a darkness that brings dreams no mortal ever wanted before. The world has undergone a drastic change; the sun is gone, the moon is gone, the stars are gone, and soon all electrical power fails; what do people do when there's nothing to light the way?
Her main character Michael Levine leaves me wondering if he is a light in the darkness or perhaps a part of the darkness. In subsequent books I hope to find the answer. I can't wait! Chaos has just begun and we are only in the first day of what might prove to be the end of the world as we know it.
