Dan reviews a list of holiday party dos and don'ts with co-workers at the office to help the listeners. Ryan asks his own father if a Presidential pardon would be in the offing if he were in Hunter Biden's shoes.
Now that Hunter Biden faces felony tax charges, Dan and Ryan wonder when and whether President Biden will issue a pardon for his son - and what such a pardon would mean for his political prospects in 2024. Also, a caller raises an interesting question pertaining to Joe Biden - can a bad father still be a good President? Or are the two inexorably linked?
Dan takes issue with Vivek Ramaswamy's treatment of Nikki Haley in the final GOP presidential debate before January's Iowa caucuses, as Ryan contends it allowed Ron DeSantis to shine and rise above the fray as the clear winner.
Kate Anderson, attorney for Alliance Defending Freedom representing the Wailes family, breaks down the case challenging JeffCo schools for not notifiying the parents of an 11-year-old girl that a biological male transgender student - identifying as female - would not only be staying in the same hotel room as their daughter, but sharing the same bed. Also, Colorado state Senator Jerry Sonnenberg (R-1) announces his bid for the 4th Congressional seat, joining three other candidates in the Republican primary field.
Chris Richardson, Elbert County commissioner, has been appointed to be part of a Colorado property tax task force designed to find relief for state residents after the fall of the Gallagher Amendment and the failure of the General Assembly to find a permanent solution. He joins KBB, in for Dan, to forecast what may lie ahead for homeowners and renters. Also, Ryan finds himself in the unique position on this day of praising Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) and criticizing his favorite member of Congress - Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) - for their respective stances on the Israel-Hamas War.
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) attempts to push through the most comprehensive gun control legislation since the so-called 'assault weapons ban' of 1994, but Sen John Barrasso (R-WY) stands in the way with an objection to protect the second amendment rights of all Americans. Also, JeffCo Schools respond with a statement on the case being brought against them by Alliance Defending Freedom protecting the rights of an 11-year-old girl who was surprised by being assigned to the same bed in the same hotel room with a trans student identifying as female on a field trip. Finally, Ryan hearkens back to theme songs from hit 1970s and 1980s sitcoms for which Norman Lear served as executive producer, following the TV mogul's death at the age of 101.
Ryan details more reasons why Nikki Haley doesn't have the depth of knowledge of judgment to be a reliably conservative Commander-In-Chief. Also, Kelly offers her perspective as the mother of a daughter on a story out of Jefferson County in which an 11-year-old girl was forced to share a hotel room bed with a transgender student identifying as female (biological male) on a field trip without her prior knowledge or consent - and her parents weren't informed either.
Ryan is in for Dan and starts out going after Liz Cheney and her preposterous assertion that another Donald Trump presidency would be an existential threat to our Constitutional republic. Ryan outlines all the ways Democrats, the media, and the bureaucratic establishment agencies attempted to undermine and delegitimize Trump from Day One of his first term - not the other way around. These nefarious elements prevented Trump from doing his job without constant interference.Also, Ryan details the reasons why Nikki Haley is a terrible candidate and not in line with the modern populist, America First elements of the Republican party.
Ryan flies solo filling in for Dan because KBB has to go home and make beef stew for her visiting family members. He breaks down the debate hosted by Sean Hannity on Fox News between Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) and Governor Gavin Newsom (D-CA), and explains why Ronnie D won on points and substance despite a lack of charisma and 'it' factor that Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump have both possessed. Also, the reasons why Governor Kristi Noem (R-SD) is a flawed candidate for Vice-President with baggage and red flags that Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders (R-AR) doesn't bring to the ticket. Also, Today News Africa chief White House correspondent Simon Ateba joins Ryan after the latest dust-up between the beleaguered reporter and press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.
On a fun, free-for-all Friday, Kristi Burton-Brown, Ryan, and Kelly all offer up their ratings for the remaining Republican candidates for President - Donald Trump, Ron DeSantis, Nikki Haley, Vivek Ramaswamy, and Chris Christie - on a scale of 1 to 10. Listeners call and text in with their rankings as well. KBB, Ryan, and Kelly all reach a consensus on a Vice-Presidential running mate for Trump: Arkansas governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
The cognitive decline of President Biden is on full display during his visit to Pueblo, as KBB and Ryan ponder what year of President Reagan's life and battle with Alzheimer's would be analogous to Biden's current state. Also, could the answer to election fraud be a nationwide enactment of Electoral College vote apportionment currently implemented by Maine and Nebraska in Presidential elections?
Kristi Burton-Brown fills in for Dan and is joined by veteran political analyst and consultant Dick Morris, who has authored the new book 'Corrupt:The Inside Story of Biden's Dark Money.' Also, Tracy from Longmont alerts KBB and Ryan to a new Ebola vaccine that is being provided only to health care workers. Ryan asks why there is a need for an Ebola vaccine in the first place at this moment in world history, as KBB wonders if there's something Big Pharma and the U.S. government isn't telling us about the disease in this country.
Dan reads a letter co-signed by several prominent Jewish Democrats in Colorado politics calling out members of their own party for disproportionate responses to the October 7th massacre of Israel civilians by Hamas compared with the Jewish state's response in targeting military strongholds in Gaza that use Palestinian civilians as human shields. Dan asks a very fundamental question - why is the signature of Governor Jared Polis missing from this document?
At 77 years of age, America's sweetheart Dolly Parton rocked a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader outfit impressively at halftime of the team's Thanksgiving Day game against the Washington Commanders - so much so that 49 year-old Ryan said he'd have no problem entertaining the thought of a May-December romance with the country music superstar should the fates allow. Dan has a major issue with this and asks the audience whether the 28-year gap between the two would-be lovebirds is too much, or whether Ryan is justified in his amorous feelings for Dolly.
