The Rundown-Thurs 4/12: Cory Gardner; Ryan retires; Farmer "patriots"

At about 6:10 AM (with probably replay around 9:10), I'll speak with Senator Cory Gardner about Syria, Facebook, President Trump and more. 

At 7:34, Caitlin Quattromani joins us to tell my listeners about this interesting TedX Mile High event discussing cannabis in Colorado. It's next Wednesday, April 18 at 6 PM, at "Galvanize on Platte" at 1644 Platte Street: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/colorados-cannabis-conversation-tickets-44563234835

Can you imagine how furious President Trump must be that his hand-picked US Attorney recused himself? But what choice did Berman have?

The glee on the real left and the fake right cheering the news of Paul Ryan's retirement is fairly sickening. For example: https://www.yahoo.com/news/paul-ryan-apos-whole-career-185913176.html

Here's another wildly misleading article by the usual suspects:

Shouldn't the person who brings a lawsuit like this be penalized?

How swampy is this?

EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt used an outside PR firm to create this EPA propaganda that mentions Pruitt nearly 220 times, or about 6 times per page:

By comparison, a similar document from 2014 mentions then-Administrator Gina McCarthy's name once, with her signature at the end of the introductory letter:
