    April 1, 2015 10pm (PDT)- UFO Disclosure & The Money Mafia with Paul Hellyer

    in Paranormal

    Paul Hellyer is one of Canada’s best known and most controversial politicians. First elected in 1949, he was the youngest cabinet minister appointed to Louis S. St. Laurent’s government eight years later. He subsequently held senior posts in the governments of Lester B. Pearson and Pierre E. Trudeau, who defeated him for the Liberal Party leadership in 1968. The following year, after achieving the rank of senior minister, which was later designated Deputy Prime Minister, Hellyer resigned from the Trudeau cabinet on a question of principle related to housing.


    Although Hellyer is best known for the unification of the Canadian Armed Forces and for his 1968 chairmanship of the Task Force on Housing and Urban Development, he has maintained a life-long interest in macroeconomics. Through the years, as a journalist and political commentator, he has continued to fight for economic reforms and has written several books on the subject.


    A man of many interests, Hellyer’s ideas are not classroom abstractions. He was born and raised on a farm and his business experience includes manufacturing, retailing, construction, land development, tourism and publishing. He has also been active in community affairs including the arts and studied voice at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto. His multi-faceted career, in addition to a near-lifetime in politics, gives Hellyer a rare perspective on what has gone wrong with world economies.


    In recent years he has become interested in the extraterrestrial presence and their superior technology that we have been emulating. In September 2005 he became the first person of cabinet rank in the G8 group of countries to state unequivocally “UFO’s are as real as the airplanes flying overhead.”

    Episode 272: Naval Professionalism; up, down, and back again - with Will Beasley

    in Military

    What are the intellectual responsibilities of the naval professional? What is the canon sound thought in the maritime realm is based?
    Historically, what has been done, what has worked, and what should we be doing? Should the naval professional just focus on his narrow area of expertise, or does he need to have a more interdisciplinary approach to his intellectual development?


    Our guest to discuss this and more for the full hour will be William M. Beasley, Jr.,  associate attorney with Phelps Dunbar, LLP in Mississippi. He graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Mississippi with a BA and MA in history where his graduate thesis examined the impact of popular culture, inter-service rivalry, civil-military relations, strategic planning, and defense unification on the "Revolt of the Admirals" of 1949.



    Mr. Beasley received his JD from the University of Mississippi School of Law, where he served on the editorial board of the Mississippi Law Journal. Prior to joining Phelps Dunbar, Mr. Beasley worked as a research consultant with the Potomac Institute in Arlington, Virginia. He is a member of the Center for International Maritime Security (CIMSEC) and his work on maritime history and security has appeared in Proceedings, The Strategy Bridge, and USNI Blog.

    St. Josepha Rosello

    in Religion

    Rebroadcast of the long running radio program, "The Ave Maria Hour", a presentation of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement.
    www.AtonementFriars.org


    St. Josepha Rosello - Benedetta Rosello was born at Liguria, Italy, in 1811, and at the age of sixteen she became a Franciscan tertiary. For nine years, she cared for an invalid, and when he died, Benedetta, along with Paula Barla, and her two cousins Angela and Domenica Pescio, established a community at Savona in 1837.


    The new community was called the Daughters of Our Lady of Pity, and its members engaged in the education of poor girls, the founding of hospitals, and other charitable works. Benedetta took the religious name Josepha and was mistress of novices. She was later elected superior in 1840, and she remained in that post till her death.


    In 1846, the group received diocesan approval, and the number of its foundations increased rapidly. During Josepha’s lifetime, the congregation numbered sixty-eight houses. During the last years of her life, Josepha was quite ill and her prayer life was terribly arid. Nonetheless, she persevered till the end. She died on December 7, 1880, and she was canonized by Pope Pius XII in 1949.
