Is it treason to criticize the president? If so, Mona and Jay are in big trouble. They also take swipes at Beto, Mayor Pete, farm subsidies, and more, while pausing to appreciate a Mr. Smith Goes to Washington moment. They end on a bittersweet note -- this is the last regularly scheduled Need to Know.

Yes, Mona and Jay talk about Kate Smith, recently the victim of a terrible injustice. But they don't play "God Bless America" at the end. They have Kate Smith in "I'll Be Seeing You," that classic (1938) by Fain and Kahal. In the course of the 'cast, they talk about Venezuela, Trump, Mueller, Bernie, and other topics that seize attention.

Over the Wall, the R's and the Dems are playing a game of chicken. That's one thing Mona and Jay say about this shutdown drama. Who's going to swerve away first? Is the border a genuine national emergency? Then our hosts talk about Tucker Carlson's monologue heard 'round the world, or certainly 'round the Right, as Mona says: What are the limits of government? What can government do for people? What should it? Also included in this episode are the greatness of California (whatever its problems), the malice of dictators, the glory of music, and other vital subjects. Have a listen.

It sounds like a PR firm or a face cream, but it's our two guests this week. Bloomberg's Eli Lake sits in for Jay as co-host, and Eliana Johnson of Politico offers her insights on staff shake-ups at the White House. Eli and Mona then talk Russia, N. Korea, and climate. We got out to some music in honor of The Weekly Standard:

Mona went splat and broke her wrist, but still shows up. She and Jay talk trade, Amazon and its critics, election fraud, Deep Fake fraud, Jim Acosta, entitlements, and the passing of three notable men.

Music from this week's episode: "Sea Murmurs," by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco, played by Brinton Averil Smith (cello) and (his wife) Evelyn Chen (piano)

Mona and Jay begin with a guest, Charles Lane. (Jay is late but butts in when he arrives.) They talk about the midterm elections and about Central America. Chuck has done extensive reporting from Latin America, as well as several other regions around the globe. Today, he is an editorial writer and columnist for the Washington Post. After Chuck leaves, Mona and Jay continue to talk about the elections, and about language, and about music, etc. Mona says it's one of her missions in life to mix it up with lefties. Jay says - as he has many times before - "You're a better man than I."

Jay and Mona talk about the eternal curse of anti-Semitism, executive orders - who's for them, who's against them and does it depend entirely upon whose ox is gored? Left wing and right wing violence. And the most underrated flavor.

Music from this week's show: Camille Saint-Saëns - Danse Macabre

In this (typically) wide-ranging hour, Mona and Jay talk about the caravan, up from Central America: Is it salted with Middle Eastern terrorists? They also discuss our northern neighbor, Canada, which has just legalized pot: What effect will that have? Other subjects include Steve King, George Soros, Nikki Haley, John Bolton, and Emmanuel Macron. Mona mentions Tchaikovsky, so the show goes out with some of his music: the Scherzo from his Symphony No. 2, played by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra under Lorin Maazel.

Charlie Sykes joins Mona to chew over the past week and exult in a new project they've helped to create. Then Mona and Jay review the lessons of the Khashoggi story, the "woman thing," Betsy DeVos, and much more. It's a wide-ranging discussion!
