5am – A/B/C/D         SHUTDOWN TIT FOR TAT: The government workers who are not receiving paychecks are not the focus of the longest government shutdown in U.S. history. Neither are the government services that have been affected, nor the national parks and museums that have been closed amid the standoff. President Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi – and their political game of tit for tat – are now front and center.

  • Trump on Thursday abruptly denied military aircraft to Pelosi for a seven-day foreign trip just minutes before the congressional delegation was set to depart, a stunning decision that followed her call to delay Trump’s scheduled State of the Union address amid the government shutdown. “In light of the 800,000 great American workers not receiving pay, I am sure you would agree that postponing this public relations event is totally appropriate,” Trump wrote in his letter to Pelosi. “I also feel that, during this period, it would be better if you were in Washington negotiating with me and joining the Strong Border Security movement to end the Shutdown.”
  • Democrats Stuck on Bus After Donald Trump Cancels Foreign Trip. Confused Democrat lawmakers were left sitting idle on a military bus near the Capitol after President Donald Trump postponed their seven-day foreign trip as the partial government shutdown continues. Photos shared to social media purport to show Democrats on a U.S. Air Force bus traveling to the airport when they received word that their access to a military plane had been blocked. House Speaker Pelosi and other Democrats planned to depart around 3:00 p.m. Eastern Thursday for her overseas trip, according to the White House.

5am – E         INTERVIEW – Weather Channel meteorologist Ray Stagich

  • DC Gets Snow and Rain, Arctic Blast on the Way. Snow and rain are just part of the story. “Temperatures could drop as much as 40 or 50 degrees between Sunday and Monday. Yikes,” Storm Team4’s Chuck Bell said. Just when the snow and ice started to clear up, we got more — and a blast of arctic air is on the way. A mix of rain and slushy, wet snow fell from Thursday afternoon into early Friday morning. Beware of slick roads early Friday.  Prince William and Fauquier County Public Schools will be closed Friday. Several other public school systems, including those in Alexandria and Arlington, plan to open two hours late. In Fairfax County, a three-hour early release is scheduled, so a decision to delay may force a full closure. A decision wasn’t expected until early Friday. Crews treated roads ahead of the snow and rain.  Despite the rain and snow, Friday will be fairly nice, with highs near 50 and some sun developing.

6am – D         GRIFF JENKINS & CARAVAN:

  • Fox & Friends opened Friday’s show with breaking news: Honduran migrants have crossed the Mexico border. That’s right, there is a new caravan of migrants assembling on the Honduran-Mexico border and are traveling by foot towards the U.S. border. Reporter Griff Jenkins reported from Guatemala on Thursday and today finds himself reporting from Ciudad Hildago, Mexico letting Fox & Friends hosts and viewers know that “this is a significant development” that more Central American people are coming to the United States to seek a better life, ostensibly underlining the need for the much-debated (and ill-defined) border wall that has led to the current month-long government shutdown.
  • Nearly 1,000 caravan migrants start process of entering Mexico from Guatemala. GUATEMALA-MEXICO BORDER – Approximately 1,000 Central American migrants in the newest caravan have begun the process of crossing into Mexico from Guatemala, a Mexican immigration official stationed at the border between the two countries told Fox News on Thursday night. A new process instituted by Mexico means that migrants will have to wait five days for their paperwork to be processed before entering the country. The new system is meant to keep things orderly after the last caravan rushed the border via the Suchiate River at the Guatemalan border city of Tecún Umán. Migrants arriving at the border Thursday were given identification bracelets and directed to a Mexican immigration office, where they filled out paperwork for a one-year visa to work and travel in Mexico.

6am – E         INTERVIEW – DR. ALVEDA KING – niece of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., executive producer of a new film “Roe v Wade” and Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn, the African American Outreach of Priests for Life – previewed March for Life, the upcoming Roe v Wade film and look ahead to Martin Luther King Jr Day.

  • Trailer Released for New Roe v. Wade Movie: The Story of What Really Happened. The first trailer for the much-anticipated new film “Roe v. Wade” is out. The movie, which will tell the true story of the lies and manipulations used to push abortion on America, is a project of actor/producer Nick Loeb and Cathy Allyn. It stars Academy Award-winning actor Jon Voight, Joey Lawrence, Corbin Berensen, Stacey Dash and Greer Grammer. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., also is an executive producer and has a cameo in the film. The 3-minute trailer will be shown during the March for Life on Jan. 18, but people also can watch it on YouTube. “…No one has really told the whole truth about Roe v. Wade in a film,” Loeb said, previously. “When I delved into this, I discovered conspiracy theories, fake news, made-up statistics and a whole lot of people involved who switched their positions from pro-choice to pro-life, including Norma [McCorvey].” The “Jane Roe” of Roe v. Wade, McCorvey later became pro-life. The film tells her story as well as other key players in the abortion battle of the 1960s and ’70s. The film is slated to be released later this year.

6am – F         Women’s March ATTENDANCE FALL — Only 10,000 people expected for Saturday’s DC Women’s March according to a National Park Service permit. Between 500,000 and 1 million people were estimated for the 2017 march. WASHINGTON, D.C., USA — What was once a uniquely American moment is likely to fade into memory this weekend, when the latest Women’s March is expected to attract only 10,000 people to the nation’s capital. The staggering scale-back comes amid an ongoing public relations struggle, a dueling march, an unfavorable weather forecast and an apparent clash with the National Park Service. The expected attendance figures have not been previously reported, and are recorded within a final permit issued Thursday by the U.S. Department of the Interior. Ten thousand people are clearly recorded under “anticipated number of participants,” between the first bus arrival at 7 a.m. until the final departure at 5 p.m. Saturday.

  • The Democratic Party quits sponsoring Women’s March after explosive segment about Louis Farrakhan on ‘The View.’ The Democratic National Committee is no longer sponsoring the annual Women’s March, which is set to take place Saturday in Washington, D.C. The DNC is just the latest in a string of groups that have rescinded its endorsements and affiliation with the group after one of its leaders refused to denounce Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, in a recent interview. Women’s March co-presidents, Tamika Mallory and Bob Bland, appeared on “The View” Monday, where the show’s co-hosts peppered them with questions about the organization. Mallory’s relationship with Farrakhan was put on the front burner for the heated segment. Mallory refused to denounce him and instead called him the “greatest of all time” for “what he’s done in black communities.” Mallory repeatedly refused to condemn Farrakhan’s remarks about people of Jewish faith and others, though being pressured to do so.

8am – A         INTERVIEW — VIRGINIA STATE SENATOR AMANDA CHASE —  is currently a member of the Virginia Senate for the 11th District, representing Amelia County, the city of Colonial Heights, and part of Chesterfield County.

  • Amanda Chase, Va. state lawmaker, open carries on Senate floor: ‘It empowers women.’ A freshman legislator has started openly carrying her .38 revolver on the floor of the Virginia state Senate. State Sen. Amanda Chase (R) told The Washington Post that she has begun wearing her revolver visibly strapped to her hip after a colleague was confronted by a group of protesters. The Virginia state Capitol, in Richmond, has lax gun rules and gun-toting visitors are allowed in if they have a concealed-carry permit, the Post reported. Chase, who owns a small financial services business, told the newspaper that she usually carries her gun concealed because she doesn’t want to “raise alarm for other people.”
