Hour 1: John Iadarola and Elliot Hill of Lip TV hosting. Up to 500 rounds of ammo was exchanged from the terrorist standoff in France last night. President Obama speaks out against many prominent Republicans’ hateful and incendiary rhetoric surrounding the Paris attacks and potential for refugees coming to America. Video of some of his biting words towards Republicans. John brings up the bombing of Spanish trains during GW Bush’s term, and how Conservatives had nothing disparaging to say about Bush’s foreign policy. In the wake of the latest terror attack, France is still accepting 30,000 refugees into the country, but with great care. In contrast, a State Rep in Tennessee has introduced a bill that would gather up the current Syrian refugees and send them back to ICE. Jeb Bush has also spoken out, saying he wants to send ground troops into Syria.
Hour 2: A program looking to stop women from taking part in prostitution gives the arrested women the chance to either get themselves on their feet or go to jail. Talk about how legalizing prostitution could minimize the problem. A number of studies show that the increased frequency of sex between a couple doesn’t add to the happiness. As long as the couple has sex once/week, it’s the same as if they connect many more times. The Fox Business channel host Charles Payne mediated a panel where he pushed the idea that we should shut down all mosques. Video of his numerous attempts to push the narrative based on his impromptu poll.
