    in Family

    Today we welcome Aaron Krause to Autism and Scouting Radio. Aaron is a new Eagle Scout, recent high school graduate and college student who regularly advocates for himself and for others on the autism spectrum. His Eagle Project was a video called "All Are Welcome" which was produced to help others know that all abilities are welcome in the Greater Milwaukee Synod of the ELCA. This video was shown at the Urban Autism Summit and during the opening for the International Summit on Disability Employment held in Honolulu, Hawaii in 2014.


    We will be talking about Aaron's journey within scouting. Aaron started as a Tiger Cub Scout and continued for many years in the program, earning his Arrow of Light and later transitioning into Boy Scouts. We will also be asking Aaron abut his self-advocacy work. Aaron is a big believer in promoting autism acceptance and empowerment. He has testified at the Wisconsin state Capitol on a variety of autism-related issues including insurance reform, scholarships and school vouchers. He has also been interviewed on radio and TV. One of Aaron's life goals is to continue learning about autism and to spread Autism Acceptance wherever he goes.

    A Just Cause - False Confessions & Tortured Confessions = Wrongful Convictions

    in News

    Sam Thurman, Cliff Stewart, Lisa Stewart Lamont Banks of the Colorado exoneration firm A Just Cause, discuss what happens when the wheels of justice trample unbridled over the rights of innocent Americans.  


    Although the American system of justice is the most-respected worldwide, it is still a system designed, and operated, by humans, which means it's not perfect. Sam, Cliff, Lisa and Lamont will highlight ongoing struggles against "the system" to free wrongfully imprisoned people, and what happens when justice miscarries against an actually innocent person.


    Our Special Guest for tonight's show is Standish (Stan) Willis, Criminal Defense and Civil Rights Lawyer in Chicago, Illinois. He is currently advocating to stop false/tortured confessions being obtained by law enforcement, using unethical police tactics and force.


    A Just Cause is currently campaigning for "FreeTheIRP6," who's been wrongly imprisoned in Florence, CO for a crime they didn't commit. Read full story: www.freetheirp6.org.

    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    Today is the Birthday of our most prolific example of a Black Father, a Black Leader, a Black Brother, a Muslim with morals, a Black Husband that knew his duty to provide for his wife and children and to protect them from all harm.  On February 13, 1965 the Nation of Islam bombed the house of Malcolm El Haji Malik Shabazz. Having the instincts of a warrior he safely evacuated his family and still made an engagement to the people of Detroit. "The newly awakened people all over the world pose a problem for what's known as Western interests, which is imperialism, colonialism, racism, and all these other negative isms or vulturistic isms. Just as the external forces pose a grave threat, they can now see that the internal forces pose an even greater threat. But the internal forces pose an even greater threat only when they have properly analyzed the situation and know what the stakes really are. Just by advocating a coalition of Africans, Afro-Americans, Arabs, and Asians who live within the structure, it automatically has upset France, which is supposed to be one of the most liberal--heh!--countries on earth, and it made them expose their hand. England the same way. And I don't have to tell you about this country that we are living in now. So when you count the number of dark-skinned people in the Western Hemisphere you can see that there are probably over 100 million. When you consider Brazil has two-thirds what we call colored, or nonwhite, and Venezuela, Honduras and other Central American countries, Cuba and Jamaica, and the United States and even Canada--when you total all these people up, you have probably over 100 million. And this 100 million on the inside of the power structure today is what is causing a great deal of concern for the power structure itself."

    I AM A SUPERWOMAN RADIO: HEPATITIS C AFTER THE STORM WITH DARNELLA ALLEN

    in Motivation

    In 2002 while living in Hawaii, Darnella Allen was diagnosed with Hepatitis C.  She had moved there to care for her nine year old granddaughter while her daughter was in Afghanistan. Darnella says that even though she had been ministering and teaching on the healing power of the Holy Spirit, and even though she has strong faith in the power of prayer and scripture and the laying on of hands for healing, this new information shook her to her core. Darnella reports that this became a wilderness experience. During this time her faith and her relationship with God reached an intensity that she had never experienced. She became involved in advocating for a cure for Hepatitis C She found the only Hepatitis C support group on the island, a. She was led to the top Hepatitis specialist on the island, even though she had no insurance. As a result of her illness, a passion to educate and advocate was birthed.  After returning to the mainland  she founded  LEAPS; Liver Education Advocacy & Prevention Services.  L.E.A.P.S. mission is to educate and advocate for those infected with and affected by liver disease.   She has lobbied in Washington for better medications for those affected by Hepatitis C.  In the past, the medications were ineffective on people of color.   Darnella says that she began to petition God to send a cure in her life time, and God has answered the prayers of Darnella and thousands of others. There are new cures being offered almost monthly that are having amazing cure rates. LEAPS is now directed to changing the pricing laws of medications. What good is medication if the people that need it can't afford it?


     Darnella's mission is to increase peoples faith as they deal with the realities of illness. Darnella knows through personal experience that "weeping may endure for a night, but joy does come in the morning".

    "Medical Marijuana! We Take Your Children" on "I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee"

    in Politics

    Recent headlines about state children services' departments and police agencies removing children from homes where medical marijuana is being used has created a serious concern. Authorities have ignored the recent change in laws about marijuana and continued to separate families when they find out marijuana is being used in homes where children live. The Shona Banda case in Kansas is an example.  The laws governing how states behave in this matter and, how a person who has had their children taken away can fight to get their children back, is a huge legal gray area with lots of discretion by judges, the police, and the child services' workers.  Domestic Custody Attorney Alfred Chang joins us this morning and offers expert insight in to this very important issue in our community. What to do if your children are removed from your home due to the use of marijuana both medically and recreational? What are your rights? What is the standard of evidence? How does this problem tie to any criminal process? Grab a cup of coffee and join us for an update on important current events and our education update. Long time Activist, Radio Host, Journalist and Coffee Party Director Bobby Rodrigo's show "I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee" on Coffee Party USA Radio every Sunday Morning at 8:30AM EDT. Advocating engagement, pointing out the Constitution is the Rule of Law and why it should remain so.

    Being A Parent is important

    in Self Help

    It's too easy to have children and pass the responsibility on to others.  It's high time people understood that the reosponsibility of being a parent should be taken more seriously.  I am not advocating more laws on the books to make people be responsibile for their children.   It is more important to educate the people as to the affect their behavior has on their offspring.


    Also there needs to me more support inside the family to protect the children while they are growing up and teaching them right from wrong.


    If you don't want the responsibility of children, DON'T HAVE THEM!


    If you do want to have children understand that it is a lifetime committment and that learning and growing never stop for the child or the parents.


    Get your ears unplugged from the phone and TV/Computer and play with your children.  Let them see what one has to do to earn a living and provide for the family.  Teach responsibility to and for the family.


    It hasn't always been easy being a mom but for me I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world
