A Christmas pep talk on character, courage and the overcoming of obstacles. We listen to Donald Trump talk about "hard work" as he asks the American people -- with surprising humility -- to "never ever give up" in the quest to Make America Great Again. Leading by example? Also, we preview an upcoming political debate in the Trump Era: Should our revitalized manufacturing economy label their products as "Made In America" or "Made in the USA"? Tough choices ahead. Meanwhile, the Washington Post adopts its preferred Conspiracy Theory, the disgraced Bill Kristol resigns his editorship of The Weekly Standard, and Niall Ferguson bids for relevance in the post-Globalist world by flipping his prior position against Brexit. Will it work? Plus, we review charitable pleas to "Save the Snowflakes" this holiday season and we listen to a heartfelt prayer from Rev. Franklin Graham. With Listener Calls and Christmas Music via Roger Miller, the Smithereens, Marty Robbins, Dwight Yoakam and the Riders In the Sky.
