Randi Rhodes:Congressional Fraud

Randi's on vacation this week (back Mon, 12/19), but our good friend Nicole Sandler is in for Randi today. She made the cover of Time as "Person of the Year" for 2011 - and so did you if you've been involved with any protests this year. Nicole will recap the President's speech at Ft. Bragg today marking the end of the war in Iraq and she'll have some great guests too, including:

Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ), co-chairman of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, will talk with Nicole about the payroll tax extension and unemployment fight going on in the House - and how his GOP colleagues in the House may be purposely bringing legislation to the floor that they know will fail.

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), co-chairman of the Congressional Progressive Caucus will talk with Nicole about the CPC's introduction of the Restore The Dream for the 99% Act. Rep. Ellison will also weigh in on the recent controversy over advertising being pulled from the television show 'All-American Muslim'.

Baher Azmy from the Center for Constitutional Rights on the National Defense Authorization Act. After FBI Director Robert Mueller's testimony this morning, the questions regarding the loopholes and the latest additions to the NDAA are more unclear than ever. It's still unknown whether President Obama will veto the bill or allow the possibility of indefinite detention of regular American citizens.

Shane Farnen, one of Nicole's fellow netcasters at on the webradio Occuthon to support the Occupy movement that begins this Friday night.

Finally, Josh Gerstein, of Politico joins us to help straighten out and clarify the debate on the National Defense Authorization Act, and whether the President will veto the bill or not.
