The defiant rogue state of North Korea continues their march forward to a nuclear power. Ryan Mauro has a different take on the situation. What is really behind the Flynn FBI lie; could it be strategic or did the General get caught in a political web? Congress smells their first big victory in the form of ‘Tax Cuts’ – the dems claim this is nothing more than a charade for the wealthy.

North Korea Stays The Course – North Korea fired what appeared to be a new type of ICBM. North Korean state television claimed it was a nuclear-capable missile that was “significantly more” powerful than missiles in previous tests. UN Ambassador Nikki Haley said at an emergency UN Security Council meeting…”If war does come, it will be because of continued acts of aggression like we witnessed yesterday. And if war comes, make no mistake, the North Korean regime will be utterly destroyed,” Professor Ryan Mauro is the Shillman Fellow and national security analyst for the Clarion Project.

Flynn Is Charged – The Destruction of an American Patriot – Most experts would agree – Special Counsel Robert Mueller may have his eye on the Oval Office but collateral damage is part of the mission IF he is to earn his keep. With an unlimited checkbook and extensive powers that affords him to look under every rock – is this just the beginning or…? Flynn is now stuck in the web of deception OR IS HE? Is this part of Flynn’s strategy? Colonel Jim Waurishuk is here, he is retired from USAF, a career senior intelligence and political-military affairs officer.

Congress Wants Tax Cuts Under The Tree – PANEL DISCUSSION: Don’t look now but the ‘Do-Nothing-Congress’ may be on the verge of the biggest change in the U.S. Tax System in many decades. BUT is this really the TAX BREAK for the middle-class? And the attorney for Rep John Conyers says his client plans to fight the sex allegations until the cows come home, what about due process? Is Special Counsel operating beyond the rules of our legal system, is this justice or abuse of power to destroy political targets? Are threats against Flynn’s family and others being used to coerce testimony? Ava Armstrong and Jim McCay will provide analysis on our top stories.
