    Having A Fidget Spinner Is A Human Right                  Today's topics include: The word out of Washington D.C. is that some Republican Senators were seen playing with fidget spinners -- probably due to the fact that they weren't as mesmerized as the people at CNN and MSNBC were with Adam Schiff's never ending speech... Next, Tom Tancredo (Former US Congressman (R-CO), Advisory Board Member for 'We Build The Wall', and Author of the Bush-era book "Mortal Danger: The Battle for America's Border and Security") talks to John about President Trump's latest effort to curtail what is known as 'anchor babies'/'birth tourism' -- where pregnant women travel to the US solely to have their babies be born a US citizen.

    If The Evidence Is Overwhelming, Who Needs More Witnesses?               Today's topics include: The Democrats have been complaining about the Republicans not calling for witnesses during the impeachment trial in the Senate -- but who remembers when Jerry Nadler was in-charge and didn't want to hear about it from the Republicans?...  Next, Tyler O'Neil (Senior Editor for PJ Media and Author of, "Making Hate Pay: The Corruption of the Southern Poverty Law Center") discusses an article he wrote over at PJ Media on how a recent poll conducted by the Knights of Columbus/Marist show that the 2020 Democrats are totally clueless on how the public views abortion. And finally, John plays back on old interview he had with former NFL player Merril Hoge regarding his book ("Brainwashed: The Bad Science Behind CTE") and subsequent skepticism Merril had over all of the hysteria surrounding CTE. Well, Merril was on to something...John goes over a new article in The Washington Post which gives credence to a lot of the CTE deniers.

    I'm Taking Dennis Prager's Advice              Today's topics include: Dennis Prager told his radio audience today to 'not watch the impeachment circus' - well, John added the 'circus' part - but Dennis is right, it's unwatchable...

    No Shots Fired                       Today's topics include: Somewhere around a hundred thousand people showed up in Richmond, Virginia today - many of whom were packing heat - and there was no gun play. Not a single shot was fired... Next, Cory Kepner (member of Firearms Owners Against Crime) joins the show via car phone as he travels back from Richmond after attending the big pro-gun rally. Cory gives John an update of what he saw first-hand, as well as why the peaceful protest from earlier today is a big deal to Second Amendment rights everywhere. And finally, Marcus Winters (Senior Fellow for Education Policy at the Manhattan Institute) discusses a recent study he did comparing the effects of attending charter schools vs. traditional public schools. Listen in to learn why charter schools are having greater success in educating students and subsequently getting better test scores.

That all seems nice...however, John and Tony's first response after hearing the news was - why not a football stadium?
