    Can we trust our government

    in Entertainment

    It seems like another skeleton falls out of the United States’ closet every day. Whistleblowers are coming out of the woodwork, and the government is struggling to keep the scandals contained


    In 1996, Gary Webb, a writer for the San Jose Mercury News, published a series of articles known as “Dark Alliance.” The articles detailed how the CIA turned a blind eye as Nicaraguan drug traffickers sold and distributed crack cocaine in Los Angeles throughout the 1980s. It also described how the Reagan administration protected drug dealers from prosecution.


    US Army Private Bradley Manning is responsible for what some have called the biggest leak of secret military data ever. His actions also helped put WikiLeaks on the map, as he provided the organization with hundreds of thousands of classified documents.


    Among the things Manning revealed were:


    • A secret video, nicknamed “collateral murder” that showed US air crew laughing after killing dozens of people (including reporters and civilians) in an air strike.
    • Detailed records of the civilian death toll in Iraq (even though the military repeatedly said there was no record). Out of 109,000 deaths logged in a six year period, 66,081 were unarmed civilians.
    • US Soldiers committed horrific acts of torture on Iraqi prisoners, and despite hundreds of filed complaints, authorities never investigated.
    • US defense contractor DynCorp was involved in child trafficking.


    Currently Manning is being imprisoned by the military and is facing 21 charges, including “aiding the enemy,” which comes with a life sentence. Yes . . . Manning is in jail for exposing the US government paying a company that sold child slaves.

    The My Big Girl Panties Show with Benita Tyler and BrendaEatsLV

    in Self Help

    Benita Tyler grew up in San Diego, California where she attended San Diego State University. Throughout her life she realized there was a common denominator between the love she had for children and her desire to help others. She raised six children, and has helped many fallen angels throughout her life’s journey. When she turned fifty she had an epiphany! She realized she was a broken woman who spent the better part of her life wandering aimlessly around trying to find the root cause of her despair. She began to place her thoughts on paper and was able to face her demons. Out of that self-analysis her memoir Addicted to Dysfunction: Released to Live Life Out Loud was born. This led to a passionate writing career and desire to become a life coach. Her second book Put Up or Get Shut Down tells the epic tale of “Salty Dog” her husband’s alter ego who takes you on a journey into the urban motorcycle world.


    After finding a comfortable place among her peer as a writer she took the next step and penned her first novel Wayward Sisters, an intriguing story about three women whose lives are intertwined by their good and bad choices. They confront their demons by trial and error and eventually live the victorious lives they dreamt about. She has been featured on many internet radio shows and is available for public speaking events. She currently lives in Kokomo, Indiana with her husband and young daughter.

    The Government Is Yo Baby Daddy!

    in Politics Conservative

    In this episode I am going to go through the Moynihan Report and a book by Jason Riley called "Please Stop Helping Us".


    These two items deal with how government programs like welfare have done more damage than good to the African-American community as a whole.


    How is that more than 50 years ago only 1 in 4 Black children were in fatherless homes and today that figure has just about reversed?  Today more than 70% of Black children live in fatherless homes.  This has to say something!


    How is it that many blacks continue to make excuse for the bad behavior in the culture.  You see when it comes to crime rates, high school drop rates, and government dependency, its not about them doing something to us.  Its us doing it to oursevles.

    Liberty is not about Government

    in Religion

    Among the more dangerous thoughts we can have about human government is not that we should be free from it, but that it should ever have had charge over us at all.


    ?What man was given, from the outset was a responsibility of self-control...and obedience to God. But though "God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions", including the many forms of human government.

    Government Over-Reach or Government Under-Reach

    in Military

    It seems the rights the government takes from us....everything from the TSA touching our No No Squares to limiting the most popular hunting ammo....really do nothing to increase our safety.


    Yet, the really important things towards protecting our safety like closing the border and keeping helicopters from landing on the White House lawn seem to be impossible for the government to manage.


    What game are the planning? How long will America tolerate it? And what should we really be afraid of?

    The Re-Education of Black People on Government & Economics

    in Radio

    Based on 'Unlimited Education' Research many of the problems that plague Black People and other minorities in the United States is the overwhelmingly low understanding of the value of understanding and participating in the Political Process, as well as the value of understanding and participating in the Economic System on an Entrepreneural level.

    The value of Government Education, Political Science and Economic Education must not continue to be underestimated, if Black and White People are to solve the problems of Black Poverty, Lower Quality Education among Black People, Drugs, Alcohol, Crime, Violence, Police Brutality, Mass Incarceration and others... 

    All of thise problems, in part, are directly or indirectly related to Black People, as a whole, not asserting their political and economic might to influence public policy and their inability to fund and support their own endeavors, due to low Entrepreneurship and a lack of understanding of basic Economic Principles. Way too many Black People fail to pay adequate attention to what is going on in politics and economics and way too many simply don't believe in the Political and Economic Systems. They don't believe they were designed for Black People, consider them corrupt systems or systems of White Supremacy.

    These beliefs are, of-course, the product of conspiracy theories that have some, but very little basis in fact, as I will point out in this rather short broadcast, which is designed to deliver some very basic, yet valuable information on the structure of our government and economic systems in America, as they affect African-Americans and their relationship with White Americans.
