During today's show I'll be sharing with you an interview with the remarkable Lt. Jim Downing USN (retired). At 104 years old he's the second-oldest living survivor of the attack on Pearl Harbor 76 years ago today. Jim travels a lot for a gentleman of a three-digit age and never charges speaking fees. He funds his travels through sales of his book, "The Other Side of Infamy: My Journey through Pearl Harbor and the World of War" which I encourage you to buy, not least because the Guinness Book of World Records has just named Jim as the oldest-ever malehttps://www.navpress.com/p/the-other-side-of-infamy/9781631467448Or at Amazon.com: https://www.amazon.com/Other-Side-Infamy-Journey-through/dp/1631466275/

At 6:37 AM MT (8:37 AM ET), Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) joins the show to talk about tax reform, President Trump's actions regarding shrinking National Monument areas in Utah, the president's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and his view of the integrity (actual and perceived) of the Mueller investigation. I'll probably also ask about the Al Franken situation after many Democrats turned on Franken (D-MN) yesterday and he's expected to resign today.

At 7:06 AM MT (9:06 AM ET), we'll talk with one of the nation's most influential economists, Steve Moore, about the GOP tax plan and about his thoughts about the stock market.

Following my conversation with Paul Ryan on Wednesday, multiple news outlets wrote reports about it: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2017/12/01/gop-eyes-post-tax-cut-changes-to-welfare-medicare-and-social-security/

And a lot of liberals wet their beds about what Ryan said to me about entitlement reform.

The bed-wetters were also out in force about Trump's Jerusalem announcement:https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worldviews/wp/2017/12/06/its-catastrophic-u-s-allies-reject-trumps-expected-jerusalem-pronouncement

At least AIPAC got this one right:https://www.aipac.org/learn/resources/aipac-publications/publication?pubpath=PolicyPolitics/Press/AIPAC%20Statements/2017/12/Jerusalem%20announcement
