    Eagle Scout Aaron Krause advocating for an Autistic Voice

    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. 


    Tune in for a great show with a fine young man!

    Curious Times - Sioux Storm, Animal Totems

    in Spirituality

    Tonight we welcome Sioux Storm to the show. We will discuss the many courses that she teaches and the Totem Portraits she does, and Sioux will share her knowledge of Animal Totems. We will open up the phone lines for questions about our topic, however we will not take questions related to "what is my animal totem". 


    Advocating self-mastery, visionary healer and teacher Sioux Storm accompanies her students on the path of self-awareness and self-love. Guiding her students to step into their full power, Sioux believes that by knowing ourselves we can heal, and begin to heal others.


    With a background in psychology and art, Sioux is a “seer” into the patterns and beliefs that we allow to limit us. Through totem portraits, one-on-one sessions, and shamanic teachings, she offers the healing, clarity and insight to choose what we want for ourselves. A visionary artist and master teacher of Divine Intervention, sacred geometry and additional shamanic wisdoms, Sioux follows in the footsteps of her teacher Starr Fuentes.


    To find out more about the many courses Sioux offers and of course her amazing Totem Portraits, please visit her website:

    "Education Destruction, A Continuing Saga" on "I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee"

    in Politics

    Our Public Education is under relentless attack.  In Wisconsin, Governor Scott Walker slashed the education budget in favor of privatization, standardized testing, and a basketball stadium. In New York, the Board of Regents appointed MaryEllen Elia as its Education Commissioner.  Elia, who was ran out of Florida, has long ties to Common Core and Standardized Testing.  The recent Opt-Out movement that was so large in New York essentially had its face slapped. Georgia and Wisconsin both are advocating for a workforce instead of education and a growing movement to certify teachers without requiring the formal education.  The two major political parties are behaving essentially the same. We are joined again by Marla Kilfoyle of Badass Teachers, http://www.badassteacher.org/ to discuss the many issues destroying our education system. Marla offers the educator and activist perspective. BAT's mission "to give voice to every teacher who refuses to be blamed for the failure of our society to erase poverty and inequality through education and refuse to accept assessments, tests and evaluations created and imposed by corporate driven entities that have contempt for authentic teaching and learning." So grab a cup of coffee and join us.  Longtime Activist, Journalist, Coffee Party USA Board of Director & Radio Host, Bobby Rodrigo's show "I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee" on Coffee Party USA Radio airs Sunday Morning at 8:30AM. Advocating engagement Bobby points out the Constitution is the Rule of Law and why it should remain so. Money in Politics, the Political Party Machine, and partisan blind allegiance is on full display as he advocates against the erosion of Constitutional Protections in the name of corruption & tyranny. "If we focused on following the Constitution we would solve many of the ills of our society.”

    the Beginning of the End series 6 "The Churches part 4"

    in Christianity

    The letter to the church of Thyatira was written to address and redress an alarming problem concerning immorality and idolatry. There was much to commend in the Thyatira chruch in terms of 'love, works, service, faith, and patience', but this serving church is seduced because a wicked and immoral woman, calling herself a prophetess, is advocating sexual immorality and idolatry. A Christian, even though serving, can lose spiritual health through compromise with immorality and idolatry. The seducing agent of darkness aka Satan, diverts our attention from sound doctrine "The Gospel of Jesus Christ". Let's continue in the study of Revelation Chapter 2:18-29 with Pastor Michael Crow and Carnita Smith.

    Lunch & Learn w. Barrett Matthews

    in Self Help

    Join us on Lunch & Learn with Chris & Barrett as we bring on our guest co-host, Brent Harding


    Carol J. Matthews-Shifflett, MA


    Executive Director of the Sojourner Group, Salt Lake City, Utah. Ms. Shifflett has a Bachelors Degree in Cultural Anthropology and earned her Masters Degree in Community Leadership. After returning to college as a non-traditional student, Carol has been a proponent of empowering women and encouraging them to reach their highest potential. As the former Volunteer Coordinator for the YWCA, Salt Lake City, her career interest took on the direction of advocating for women in violent relationships. For the past 15 years she has been drawn to personal conversations with marginalized women of the African and Black Diaspora who often suffer in silence due to lack of cultural understanding from mainstream service providers. Carol has since been zealous in working to ensuring that Black women in Utah find their voices. As an active community leader, she firmly believes that leadership is not an individual venture, but one that involves a collective group of persons and personalities with a common goal of working for the good of the cause. Her chief principles are respect, integrity, communication, and commitment. It is with these qualities that she believes we can all collectively serve marginalized populations who have been victimized by sexual assault and domestic violence, improve the quality of their lives, and assist them on the journey of healthier lifestyles and families.

    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."
