Tonight's Soundtrack: Show Opening Becky G "Can't Get Enough" Show Closing: One Republic "Native"
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."

Hey -- it's time for another episode of The Down and Dirty with Frank Fontana!
Our first guest is interior designer and lifestyle expert Andrea Schroder -- we're finally connecting with her! You may know her from the second season of Top Design on Bravo and/or as the wife of Ricky Schroder, but she's also been busy acting and appearing on talk shows... as well as producing her own line of candles.
During our Craftsmanship segment, we're welcoming back to our studios Derrick Smash of DerrickSmash LLC. He's a cornhole master based in Chicago, who makes fantastic custom sets and bags for all your cornhole needs. He's stopping by to show off a special Down & Dirty setup, as well as to talk about what he's been up to in the past couple years.
We're also celebrating the release of Fast & Furious 6 with our in-house Vin Diesel scholar Bo Balogun, and we'll hear a DIY Disaster story from New House, New Home, New Life blogger Heather Benton.
Let's get Down and Dirty!
Let's celebrate the death of the mainstream media!
And while we're at it, I'll show you the path to the way ahead. And then a trip down the Mad Hatter's Rabbit Hole, where the Queen of Pantsuits reigns in a spider's web of deceit, and the mad tea party revolts against Obama's trade deal.
A Race war in slow motion.
A view of the Baltimore and Maryland criminal justice system from a former prosecutor.

It Begins: Far Left Leader Agrees With ISIS – Pamela Geller & Geert Wilders “Should Not Exist”
Is Matt Drudge the second most influential man in America?
I was watching a delightful and interesting video of the building of Disneyland sent by a friend when I got a phone call late last night from Kristinn Taylor alerting me to a story he just broke over at The Gateway Pundit
( http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/…/breaking-islamic-state-p…/ )
that was linked as the TOP headline at the Drudge Report.
It was news of the shooting in Garland TX of two self-proclaimed ISIS nut jobs who were protesting a FREE SPEECH event -- Draw Muhammed cartoon contest -- organized by a mutual friend Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer of JihadWatch.org
I've met Geller -- and Spencer -- several times and have had them on my radio program numerous times over the past few years. Somehow we bloggers/writers/researchers/reporters in the new social media are all connected... it's amazing to realize the network we've created over the past fifteen years.
Anyway, my point is, I never did get back to the Disney vid. I spent the next few hours helping Kristinn grab screen shots of tweets sent out from these ISIS loons to illustrate his reports.
Never a dull moment... never. Especially not on tonight's show.
Hillary is stuggling to move past the controversy over her use of a private email account as SecState. Will it spill over into 2016 with Rep. Trey Gowdy at the helm of the investigation?
Sen. Elizabeth Warren is highly critical of Obama's Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal. So why is Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell vowing to pass the trade deal?
"The NSA is now the defacto ruler of the USA. Because of personal corruption in the people we send to represent us.
And they serve Obama and the Democrats," says a friend. True? Elizabeth Chryst with her take on it.
Our Capitol Hill expert brings us up to date on the Trade deal, the PATRIOT Act renewal, Hillary's emails and other business taking place in Congress.
Are the elites feverishly preparing for something big? Full spectrum ops in the homeland? Are we bubbling up to a civil war in 2016? Resettlement communities - the latest plus what happened in Baltimore over the weekend, and a message to our youth. Is this the beginning of the "American Spring?" At least one writer thinks so.
And finally, "W" speaks out about Obama and his policies.
