We begin this week's show with a gripe about the media accepting the narrative that the Paris attacks were intended to silence free speech. One has to believe that international terror organizations are run by people who have no clue about Western political culture to buy that claim.

Then we'll speak with Mike Tomasky of The Daily Beast about the race for 2016, and a few other items in the news.

Finally, we'll be joined by Stuart Smith, author of Crude Justice: How I Fought Big Oil and Won, and What You Should Know About the New Environmental Attack on America, to talk about his epic legal battles with the oil industry in Louisiana.
