I'm here in Boston today, where on December 16 1773, Samuel Adams and the Sons of Liberty dressed as native Americans and stormed a British ship in the harbour, chucking crates of tea into the water in protest at the British Tea Act. This simple protest set in motion the US War of Independence, and gave the Americans their love of freedom, guns and low taxes.
I spoke to John D Davidson, senior correspondent at The Federalist, about why the Boston Tea Party still matters, and why Donald Trump, with his attacks on the Washington elite, is the direct successor to Samuel Adams!
ISIS militants are alleged to have killed four US Green Berets, as well as four Nigerian soldiers, in the west African country of Niger. Donald Trump has been criticised by some for his response to the attack, and for his comments to the family of one of the fallen soldiers. How should the President handle this crisis? I spoke to former US congressman and syndicated radio host Joe Walsh. Jon Gaunt is LIVE in the USA, courtesy of our corporate sponsor Probio Energy International!
