NOTE: ANDREA WAS UNABLE TO DO THE SHOW & IS RESCHEDULED FOR JANUARY 6th! Andrea Schroder returns to the show to talk about her new line of candle, "Love Lights," and update us on her and husband Ricky's busy careers producing, directing and acting in film and television. Andrea built her first home at 18, and never stopped. By the time she was midway into raising their 4 children, she had finished more than fifteen homes, and several commercial projects built, renovated, and furnished. She appeared on Bravo's "Top Design," which she credits as a great learning experience. A couple of years ago, she was feeling she had lost her passion, spark, and light. Realizing that she needed for her work to have more purpose, she had to reflect on her principles and design sensibilities, and "Love Lights" candles were created. She creates the organic fragrances herself, and makes the candles with coconut oil, wich can be used also as a moisturizer. For every candle sold, another candle goes to a part of the world needing light. Currently, Mali (Africa) receives those candles to brighten the homes of some of the poorest people in the world. Andrea says, "Together we can make this world more beautiful, one light at a time."

Today the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence released its report on the CIA's detention and interrogation techniques. And while that was happening, the House Oversight Committee led by Darrel Issa, grilled both Jonathan Gruber and HHS' Marilyn Tavenner about the deceptive practices used to pass Obamacare.
Those two items alone give us plenty to talk about tonight.
Dianne Feinstein, war profiteer, sticks it to the intelligence community. Why?
The federal budget will go the House for a vote on Thursday, before going on to the Senate. But several lawmakers say they haven't had time to read the 1603 page bill. Drudge headlines the bill as a betrayal to Americans.
That and more...
Jeb Bush forms an Exploratory Committee to, well, explore the possibility of running for president.
Sen. Ted Cruz is more popular than ever with Americans. But his Senate confreres are avoiding him like the plague. Why?
