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!
SEC. OF STATE John "Vietnam" Kerry has been busy this week, trying to convince members of the Senate Foreign Relations and Armed Services committees as well as House Foreign Affairs members why Obama's plan to "halt" Iran's nuclear weapons is a "good deal."
And both leaders in the House and Senate are getting hammered by conservatives for their flaccid responses to issues that matter. As reported by David Limbaugh "While President Obama accelerates his increasingly radical agenda, the GOP, despite its congressional majority, can barely muster an objection, let alone block his momentum."
Tonight - the backstories to those and more with Capitol Hill insider Elizabeth Letchworth Chryst, the first woman to have been elected US Secretary to the Senate.
In the age of Obama, the left's secular theology is not unlike the Puritans of New England. Though today's enforcers of progressive orthodoxy would never call themselves "neo-puritan," that's exactly what they have become. Writer and producer Jack Cashill's latest book "Scarlet Letters - The Ever-Increasing Intolerance of the Cult of Liberalism" illustrates how the progressive movement has come to mimic a religion.
Jack joins us tonight with examples galore of how and why the same Salem witchcraft hysteria mindset lives on in the left's condemnation of anything they deem unacceptable.
And... The third video revealing Planned Parenthood's selling of aborted baby body parts dropped today, and it's more devastating and gruesome than the first two, if that's possible.
Have you watched it yet? Steel yourself...
Thirty hours to debate a bill most Americans hate. How do they do it? WHY do they do it? Trade Promotion Authority -- otherwise known as The Fast Track. Giving Obama power.
And the Confederate Flag -- no longer a symbol of southern pride?
That and more tonight at 9p ET
Why did the House of Representatives pass the TPA Fast Track? What's behind it?
One week after the House of Representatives overwhelmingly rejected Obamatrade by voting against a key provision of it — Trade Adjustment Assistance — GOP establishment lawmakers resuscitated Trade Promotion Authority and rammed it through Thursday afternoon. The final tally was 218-208.
What's really going on?
Tonight -- questions. And a shocking revelation that raises even more questions.
