Upheaval around the world. In North Korea, Kim Jong Un orders his uncle executed as a traitor. In Iran, claims that an American captive, Bob Levinson, was really working for the CIA. And in the Ukraine, protestors brave freezing temperatures and take to the streets against their President. We’ll look at all the global hot spots with Arizona Senator John McCain.

And, Speaker John Boehner’s “Are you kidding me?” moment, Vice President Biden’s latest guarantee, and PolitiFact’s Lie of the Year, with our panel Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank, Cook Political Report National Editor Amy Walter and National Review Senior Editor Ramesh Ponnuru.
