Music legend Pat Boone joins me to discuss politics, and his latest project “The Holy Land Dream.” This week we also take a hard look at the NSA whistleblower situation, Steven Crowder returns to review his latest article on Patriot Depot, and talk show host Martha Zoller discusses losing our parental authority. In addition, author Randy Young returns to talk about where we are as a nation on the political spectrum. Of course we’ll also have all the latest political news as well. Tune in Saturday at Noon ET, or listen to the archive at your convenience.
