No Agenda Newsletter

10-4 Good Buddy NA Newsletter

Tomorrow is both show 1004 and the end of the month where everyone hopes we can finish the month with good donations 

Beginning the 10-code promotion you can acknowledge the show with a healthy 10-4. Ideally this means you can contribute $104 for the show by clicking here. And for everyone who cannot afford that amount, how about the 10-4 equaling $10 and 4 cents? Everyone can afford to ACK the show with a $10 and 4 cents contribution

Click here for that.
There is a lot of material to deconstruct tomorrow including the Trump State of the Union speech which even pundit Chris Matthews mentioned was creatively constructed. He missed the reason it was creatively constructed.

The Trump speech was designed to punch up harsh points and objectives at the end of phrases to elicit a standing ovation from the Republicans knowing that in most cases the Democrats would stay seated, arms crossed. The Democrats would stand or clap only if it was a Democrat initiative he was discussing. But they were few.

Someone saw this trend at these speeches and exploited it.

So if the President said “Black unemployment was at an all time low” the Democrats would stay seated as if to say this was bad.They’d stay seated when he’d suggest the eradication of MS-13 as if the Democrats were all for MS-13. It was genius.
Special No Agenda


The Show is healthier with sustaining donations known as subscriptions. Here are a few to choose from.

The favorite is the lucky $33.33 a month. Click here for that.

It has superseded the once popular $11.11 month. More lucky numbers click here.

For 2018 we have the $20.18 subscription. Click here.

Most recently the show offered the $4 a week or 75-cents an hour subscription which has become very popular. Click here for that.

There is also the $50 a month Knighthood layaway for 20 months. Click here for that.

And, of course, there is the do-it yourself open donation which is always welcome.
This went on all night and the Republican speech writers had to be laughing up their sleeves as Trump would use every patriotic bromide to make the Dems look unpatriotic because they would refuse to clap and stand for anything. They were played by the protocols.
Trump and the Stripper

Then you’ll hear our take on the Stormy Daniels sex with Trump story that was outlined in this 2011 interview.

The woman is now denying it ever happened and was on the Jimmy Kimmel Show saying so. She’s coming up on the View next.

What is going on? No Agenda discusses.
There is plenty of other material including this incredible screed against Bill Nye by “500 Women Scientists” which appears to actually be 4 very pissed off LGBTQIA women irked by the election of Trump and taking out their complaints on anyone they can. I’m not sure what Nye did to irk them, but he did something. Funny stuff.
We invite you, the producers and listeners to wrap up this monthwith a healthy contribution to say 10-4 good buddy.

Your hosts,

John C. Dvorak & Adam Curry
