12:05 Justice For Mollie An illegal immigrant from Mexico stands accused of killing college student Mollie Tibbetts and dumping her body in an Iowa cornfield — after he allegedly accosted her during a July 18 jog and she threatened to call police. Cristhian Bathena Rivera, 24, was charged with first-degree murder Tuesday in Tibbetts’ death, officials confirmed. Rivera was employed by Yarrabee Farms for the past several years and Rivera passed the government’s E-Verify employment verification system, despite his status as an undocumented immigrant. So who should be held responsible for her death, and will this lead to fixing the broken immigration system? 

12:20 – GUEST – Brandon Judd, National Border Patrol Council President


12:35 – Cohen And Manafort Face Justice President Trump on Wednesday slammed his former longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen for striking a plea deal with federal prosecutors admitting to campaign finance violations and implicating the president.  “If anyone is looking for a good lawyer, I would strongly suggest that you don’t retain the services of Michael Cohen!” Trump tweeted Wednesday. At the same time, the president tweeted in support of ex-campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who was found guilty on eight tax and bank fraud counts just as the Cohen plea deal was being finalized. And now Lanny Davis is all over TV asking for donations for Michael Cohen? What’s going on here? And did the President even do anything wrong?

2:05 – Christians Fighting Back in California!  Members of the California Assembly could vote at any time on a closely watched controversial bill known as AB 2943. California Assembly Bill 2943 declares biblical books and Christian conferences dealing with views on homosexuality or transgenderism as fraudulent under the state’s consumer fraud statute. Christians across the country are standing up for their religious freedom by opposing the bill and even planning for civil disobedience. Shouldn’t Christians fight back then their beliefs are threatened?
