Hosts: Darren Weeks, Vicky Davis

Vicky's Websites:


The government's war on ranchers and private property rights. We discuss the prosecution of the Hammond family ranchers and the government's false declaration that they were terrorists. We examine key details about the COP 21 climate agreement and explain how this "non-binding" agreement will bind you. The Omnibus budget "deal" has been passed by Congress. Tallying in at over 2,400 pages, the monster bill contains some surprises and over a trillion dollars of spending. Also, H1-B and EB-5, Pakistan becomes a manufacturing hub with billions from China and a Trans-Paki corridor. Obama prepares his next executive order, and who is watching the watchers? Why are there so many "Homeland Security" employees on the terror watch list?
