    On today's episode of Loud & Clear, Brian Becker is joined by award-winning cartoonist and columnist Ted Rall.

    Is Trump's new chief of staff John Kelly consolidating control in the White House? The rise of the Generals continues, but the administration is now dealing with new allegations relating to Trump's personal involvement in Donald Trump Jr.'s initial response to the controversy around his meeting with a Russian lawyer.

    Vice President Mike Pence is on a tour where he is denouncing what he terms 'Russian aggression'. He stopped in Georgia today after a visit to Estonia and ahead of a trip to Montenegro, an itinerary that highlights NATO's march eastwards. Alexander Mercouris, editor-in-chief of The Duran, joins the show.

    China has officially opened its first ever overseas military base in Djibouti today. What will be the role of the base, and what does it say about the changing geopolitical landscape and China's role in the world? Brian is joined by David Ewing, chair of the San Francisco chapter of the US-China Peoples Friendship Association.
