    Mitt's Adopted Black Grandson- Dockothy, Adoptee Survivor

    in Education

    Romney Family Joins Hollywood fad of Adopting Black Babies..Join us as we speak to an Adoptee Survior, Dockothy Davis! *Last week former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney announced that he had a new addition to his family.
    Romney posted a picture on Twitter with the caption,“ Our 22nd grandchild was officially adopted today: Kieran James Romney.”
    The picture was of an adorable African American baby who was adopted by one of his sons.
    Now here’s where things get interesting. Apparently the name Kieran means “little dark one” in Gaelic. The name is pretty common in Ireland, which translates to “black” or “dark.”
    Mitt Romney, AKA Mr. 1% , has a lot of grand kids but you think he would at least be able to keep count and keep up. He announced on Twitter that his 22nd grandchild, Kieran James Romney, was officially adopted. Um, one problem. Back in July, Mitt Romney, tweeted that he and his wife welcomed their 22nd grandchild. Which is it Mitt?
    "People immediately started speculating about what type of life he’s going to have growing up with the Romneys, who are known for being severely out of touch when it comes to the poor and minority communities. We should say a serious prayer for our little Kieran. 
    Join us tonight on The Gist of Freedom as we talk with Dockothy Davis.  Mr. Davis will discuss,  growing up as a foster child and then living with a white family in an exclusive white town.

    Live:Deejay Jamaican icons Kojak and Mama Liza chat live from Jamaica

    in Music

    Kojak (b. Floyd Anthony Perch, kingston, Kingston, Jamaica, began his career chanting on various sound systems under the guise of Pretty Boy Floyd. He adopted the gangster image that had proved successful for Dennis Alcapone and Dillinger.He change stage name to Nigger Kojak. His debut, ‘Massacre’, proved a local hit. In 1978 Dennis Brown had an international hit with the remake of ‘Money In My Pocket’, which was followed by ‘Ain’t That Loving You’, featuring Kojak And Liza performing ‘Hole In De Bucket’. The partnership led to conflicting reports as to the identity of Kojak’s fellow artist, as there were in fact two Mama Lizas, Beverly Brown and Jacqueline Boland. His female partner was always labelled simply as Liza, which hindered the women’s careers,. The duo performed ‘Fist To Fist Rub A Dub’, a tribute to the soft drink Sky Juice, the modest ‘One Thousand Gal’ and the festive ‘Christmas Stylee’. By 1981 Kojak And Liza had become well established and the unprecedented success of ‘Nice Up Jamaica’ was endorsed by the Jamaican tourist board. The song, although on some pressings credited to the duo, was actually a solo from Floyd Perch that verged on the surreal. By 1982 he became known as Papa Kojak and was a featured DJ at the acclaimed Skateland show, recorded live as A Dee Jay Explosion. By 1996,  performing ‘What Time Is It’, was met with enthusiasm. The song was included on his distinguished comeback album of soul cover versions, which featured backing vocals from Nadine Sutherland, J.C. Lodge, Marcia Griffiths and Judy Mowatt. The paucity of female DJ performers has often been criticized, along with the fact that early performances were only in a supporting role. The pioneering efforts of the two Lizas have since been acknowledged on record as influencing the likes of Sister Nancy and Lady Saw.call in 661-467-2407

    Reader's Entertainment Radio Presents: Carrie Ann Ryan

    in Books

    New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan never thought she’d be a writer. Not really, but she has written over twenty novels and novellas, including the very popular Redwood Pack, and Montgomery Ink series.  Join me on Thursday, January 29th at 6pm EST, as I chat with Carrie Ann about her latest novel, Wicked Wolf: A Redwood Pack Novella (1001 Dark Nights).


    The war between the Redwood Pack and the Centrals is one of wolf legend. Gina Eaton lost both of her parents when a member of their Pack betrayed them. Adopted by the Alpha of the Pack as a child, Gina grew up within the royal family to become an enforcer and protector of her den. She's always known fate can be a tricky and deceitful entity, but when she finds the one man that could be her mate, she might throw caution to the wind and follow the path set out for her, rather than forging one of her own. 

    Book Blurb:


    Quinn Weston's mate walked out on him five years ago, severing their bond in the most brutal fashion. She not only left him a shattered shadow of himself, but their newborn son as well. Now, as the lieutenant of the Talon Pack's Alpha, he puts his whole being into two things: the safety of his Pack and his son. 

    When the two Alphas put Gina and Quinn together to find a way to ensure their treaties remain strong, fate has a plan of its own. Neither knows what will come of the Pack's alliance, let alone one between the two of them. The past paved their paths in blood and heartache, but it will take the strength of a promise and iron will to find their future.

    Sky People: Untold Stories of Alien Encounters in Mesoamerica with Dr. Clarke

    in Paranormal

    Dr. Ardy Sixkiller Clarke, author of Encounters With Star People, vowed as a teenager to follow in the footsteps of two 19th-century explorers, John L. Stephens and Frederick Catherwood, who brought the ancient Maya cities to the world's attention. Dr. Clarke set out on a seven-year adventure (from 2003 through 2010) through Belize, Honduras, Guatemala, and Mexico, collecting stories of encounters, sky gods, giants, little people, and aliens among the indigenous people. She drove more than 12,000 miles, visiting 89 archaeological sites (Stephens and Catherwood visited only 44) and conducting nearly 100 individual interviews. The result is an enthralling series of unique, original, true stories of encounters with space travelers, giants, little people, and UFOs. Sky People may very well change the way you perceive and experience the world.


    Dr. Ardy Sixkiller Clarke, a Professor Emeritus at Montana State University, has dedicated her life and career to working with indigenous populations. She has been adopted by enrolled tribal members and given traditional names by three Northern Plains spiritual leaders  including the Blackfeet (Woman with Great Knowledge), the Northern Cheyenne (Walks all Woman) and the Lakota Sioux  (Woman who Helps People).


    The author of several children's books and the best-selling, Sisters in the Blood, she lives in Montana with her husband.  She continues to work as a consultant to American Indian tribes and  indigenous communities worldwide.

    Restore righteous lawful government to the American People with Kelby Smith

    in Politics Conservative

    These two verses establish our authority as men to have separate and equal station among the powers of the earth.  It is from Scripture that we get the word “dominion” which is defined as “Sovereign or supreme authority; the power of governing and controlling.”  Unalienable Rights cannot be taken or given away.  We the People delegated “just powers” by our consent to institute the government of the United States to “secure these rights.”  All political power is inherent in the People.  We the People ARE the government.  If there was no government WHO would perform the duties that were delegated to it?  We the People would, right?  And, if the People did not enumerate it, they reserved it to themselves.  Therefore, if we did not give the power, we retained it.  Once we gave it, we are subject to it and must abide in it.  A Republican Form of Government is “Rule of Law”, not politics, religion, special interests and the like.


     


    In September of 1787 the Continental Congress adopted the Constitution for the United States of America and submitted it back to the State Legislatures for ratification.  So the supreme Law of the Land was not a work of just one political body (the Continental Congress/federal government but also required the approval (ratification) of at least nine of the thirteen original States for it to become Law.  This was accomplished by June of 1788 when New Hampshire became the ninth State which gave the Constitution for the United States force and effect.  By September of 1788 the Founders had passed a resolution to establish a seat of government, when to hold elections and the date that the Government of the United States would begin operations under the Constitution; March 4, 1789.

    Addiction: The Causes and The Solutions

    in Health

    On this episode, we'll be talking to Dr. Chas Gant about the causes and solutions to addiction. Here are his initial thoughts to get us started...


    "Over the years, various approaches to solving addictions have been tried with marginal success.  


    Historically, addiction was first thought to be a moral problem to be addressed by law enforcement. In the early 20th century, a psychological/psychoanalytic model was adopted, based on the poorly substantiated belief that addicts and alcoholics were simply medicating their emotional wounds.  


    Alcoholics Anonymous then emerged and achieved a modicum of success by promoting the 12-step philosophy, which bypasses immorality or psychological rationales as the cause, focusing instead on spirituality.  


    The psychopharmacological approach came next. It was based on the assumption that addiction is caused by a or Prozac deficiency in the brain.  Substantial education and prevention efforts have also been made for decades.  


    For the most part, addictions are currently handled by some combination of these models, but with marginal success. 


    How can we do better? All of these approaches have made contributions, but none of them fully addresses the critical brain/body connection, so let’s explore the little known scientific facts about addiction.


    The good news is, we now have the tools to break this hopeless cycle." Dr. Chas

    Hermetic Magical Ethics

    in Radio

    On Thursday January 22nd, 2015 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon
    will present a discussion on Hermetic Magical Ethics. This will be
    somewhat controversial in that we will examine the ethical aspects of
    Hermetic philosophy in comparison to Christianity and other Gnostic
    variations including Crowley's Thelema and Golden Dawn Rosicrucianism.
    We will also question the merits of egalitarian collectivism compared to
    the American/Masonic work ethic and personal responsibility standards.
    We will review our newly adopted Code of Conduct for members of our
    magical lodges and explain some of the reasons for establishing these
    guidelines. So if you want to know how well-behaved and nice to each
    other magicians ought to be, tune in and we will give you our Golden Rules.

    Consciousness 3.0...The Religion Edition

    in Culture

    Can you be "holy" and "hotep" at the same time?


    There is no doubt that Christianity is a driving force in the melanin community. History demands its respect as an ideology which counteracted the mental anguish and brutal forces of subordinancy and slavery. Our forefathers adopted, embraced, and cultivated this doctrine in order to secure strength in volatile times. As the conscious mind dissects the legacy of religion and its importance to our survival, it also recognizes various inconsistencies and incorrect respresentations of biblical images. Does this mean that the system as a whole is another agent of white supremacy, or is history so tainted that the truth will forever elude us? Can we reconcile our feelings of anger and reclaim the core beliefs that held our families together through one of the most despicable time periods in American history?


    Let's dissect and build.
