Secretary of State Kerry criticizes Trump and reassures Americans that "we know who is coming into our country for the most part." But does Kerry's "for the most part" disclaimer convey doubts about his own argument? Does it inadvertently support Trump's concerns? Callers weigh in on the compatibility of Islam and American culture. Is immigration into America some kind of a "civil right"? Is "multiculturalism" the most important thing about America? We review the emerging polarities in the discourse between "nationalism v. globalism" as contrasted with the former standard of "liberalism v. conservatism." Are we entering a new political era? Might Trump be more trustworthy on foreign policy due to his independence from billionaire donors? Plus, we offer a tribute to Frank Sinatra on the 100th anniversary of his birth. With Christmas music and listener calls.
