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."

SIMON MAJUMDAR returns to the show to talk about his new project, "Fed, White and Blue," where he will be traveling all over the United States learning what it is to "be an American," since he is planning on becoming a citizen as soon as possible. He will, of course, be doing this through his love of authentic food experiences. The author of "Eat My Globe" is inviting people across America to participate in helping him to experience America through unique not-to-be-missed food, volunteering to get his hands dirty from helping food truck owners in their kitchens, to harvesting crops, to heading out into rough waters with fishermen, and more. See details at: http://www.simonmajumdar.com/musings/fed-white-blue/ Simon is a popular contributor on Food Network's Iron Chef America, The Next Iron Chef, The Best Thing I Ever Ate, and Extreme Chef, as a judge.

The Rise of Isis... the brand new book by Jay Sekulow that everyone's talking about today. We have it. Excerpts tonight.
The West Wing is livid over military revolt.
Washington’s Ruling Class Is Fooling Itself About The Islamic State. Washington's foolish approaches to the Islamic State will not destroy them or discourage others from following in their footsteps. Angelor Codevilla's take.
That and much more.

What's going on?
Well....something pretty controversial and it stems from 1400 years of Inbreeding.
There is no doubt that the widespread tradition of first cousin marriages among Muslims has harmed the gene pool among Muslims.
Because Muslims’ religious beliefs prohibit marrying non-Muslims and thus prevents them from adding fresh genetic material to their population, the genetic damage done to their gene pool since their prophet allowed first cousin marriages 1,400 years ago are most likely massive.
This has produced overwhelming direct and indirect human and societal consequences. A Danish psychologist has made a study of it. Tonight - the story.
One of the hottest prospects in MMA, Andrea Lee doesn't know the words "slow down". If she isn't in the cage, she is preparing to fight kickboxing or a BJJ tounrament.
Lee is coming off a 10 second pro debut and went 9-2 as an amateur. She will make her InvictaFC debut in Nov.
We will talk to Lee about her motivation to keep active and her prospects in the coming year.
An Iraq vet's reaction to the Latte Salute. And Barack's amazing temper tantrum. Tonight Elizabeth Letchworth and I examine both. Also...
Senate Armed Services Chairman Carl Levin (D-Mich.) predicted lawmakers would vote on giving President Obama the authorization to use military force against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) when they reconvene AFTER the midterm elections.
Democrats are split over the expansion of U.S. airstrikes in Syria this week, with some issuing strong statements of support and others saying the president should be seeking congressional approval. A disunity that party leaders hoped to avoid before the midterm elections in November?
Lawmakers will rake in $608 per hour for the time they work in DC as Congress will be in session only eight days between Aug. 1 and Nov. 12.
And... For months, several clusters of conservative lawmakers have been secretly huddling inside and outside the Capitol, plotting to oust John Boehner from the Speaker’s office when House Republicans regroup after the November elections.
The strategy — for now — seems disorganized and fluid: Find a way to push the Speaker’s race to a second ballot, create turmoil in the conference, portray Boehner as highly vulnerable and offer up an alternative.
