    On today's episode of Loud & Clear, Brian Becker is joined by former CIA analyst and whistleblower John Kiriakou to discuss the latest tension inside the NSA.

    The Pentagon and intelligence chiefs are pushing to oust the director of the NSA, but Admiral Michael Rogers is apparently being considered for a post in the Trump administration.

    Chinese President Xi Jinping is on his third trip to Latin America since taking office in 2013. With the Trans-Pacific Partnership looking like a no go and Donald Trump coming into office in January, is this the end of the Monroe Doctrine? Patrick Lawrence, writer and columnist, joins Becker to discuss what's next for China-Latin American cooperation.

    Vice President-elect Mike Pence said on Sunday that the Trump administration will work on repealing Obamacare “out of the gate”, setting up a confrontation with Congressional Democrats, but even under Obamacare, huge insurance corporations dominate the system. Becker talks to Margaret Flowers, a pediatrician and advocate for single payer health care.
