    ANDREA SCHRODER and JEFF SIEGEL

    in Entertainment

    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."

The April, 2013 event will be held in Baltimore, MD. Jeff's website: http://www.winecurmudgeon.com/

    The ANDREA SHEA KING SHOW - Ann Barnhardt

    in Politics Conservative

    "Writing about current events has become almost impossible. I sit down at my computer, and nothing happens.  Oh, I have plenty to say, but you can only say stuff so many times over and over before you just start to feel like a hack, luxuriating in the act of screaming.  And that’s no good.


    I’m doing the Andrea Shea King show on Friday morning and have specifically asked Andrea to focus the show on secular current events, just to force me to engage." -- Ann Barnhardt


    The Divine Miss B will be with me for coffee and conversation.  You're invited to join us.

    Malice v Incompetence?


    We are indisputably in the Land of Oz. The question many people are asking, in this age of topsy-turvy news stories, is whether we were propelled here by the tornado of Obama’s incompetence or the subtle scheming of the Wicked Witch of the West.


    Everything this nation once stood for is being turned on its head.  Kick Open the Doorway to Liberty: What Are We Waiting For?


    If Congress does not pass legislation to cut immigration rates, the U.S. will legally add at least 10 million new permanent immigrants over the next 10 years—a bloc of new residents larger than the cities of Atlanta (population: 447,000), Los Angeles (3.88 million), Chicago (2.7 million), Boston (645,000), Denver (650,000), St. Louis (318,000), and Dallas (1.25 million) combined.

    It's all about Obama.  His betrayal, his friends, his intentions. The results.

    Can you think of a more clumsy and dangerous move from our President than to leak classified nuclear secrets to extort another nation into taking direction from America?

    The ANDREA SHEA KING SHOW - Elizabeth Letchworth Chryst

    in Politics Conservative

    The Corker-Menendez Bill requires Congress to approve any actions the President takes re: Iran.  Its a controversial piece of legislation that some are saying turns the Constitution on its head.  Does it?  Capitol Hill expert Elizabeth Letchworth Chryst analyzes the bill that reached bipartisan unanimous approved (19-0) by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.


    And... the Department of Justice has announced that it will NOT prosecute IRS' Lois Lerner for Contempt of Congress.  The decision has caused outrage among justice-seeking organizations. What will/can Congress do about it, and what kind of impact will this decision have on Hillary Clinton's bid for the White House?


    Yucca Mountain in Nevada is a federally designated nuclear waste site that has been sitting idle for 30 years, thanks to Harry Reid. Now that he's announced he won't run for Senate again, rendering him a lame duck, movement is already underway to shift the nuclear waste from the country's nuclear facilities to its rightful place in Nevada.  We discuss.
