Pastor Will Griffith is joined by R&B Legend and contemporary peacemaker Timmy Thomas, along with his management team, Steve Tucker and Frank Levy. This is an EPR Exclusive interview on the eve of the launch of Thomas' WE CAN LIVE TOGETHER World Peace Campaign.
In 1972, Timmy Thomas was watching the evening news hosted by Walter Cronkite. Mr. Cronkite was reporting on the Vietnam war, and the thousands of American and Viet Cong soldiers that had died in battle. Timmy thought "Why Can't We Live Together". This thought became a song that was embraced by millions.
The song was initially banned in South Africa during Apartheid, yet it became their national anthem at Nelson Mandela's inauguration, where Timmy performed live in front of 200,000 people.
Timmy has had other hits world wide, as well as having his songs placed in movies such as Boys Don't Cry, C.R.A.Z.Y., Dick, Radio, and Bachelor Party. Over 100 artists including Sade, Steve Winwood, Santana, and Joan Osborne have covered "Why Can't We Live Together".
Timmy has always lived his life for peace and love, from marching peacefully with Dr. Martin Luther King, to traveling to Haiti as an airline ambassador setting up safe houses for children that have been human trafficking victims.
Innocent children are being killed by war, in the streets, and in our schools. Peace is needed now more than ever! So, he is reaching out to renowned artists in the epic remake "Why Can't We Live Together",
KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN FOR WORLD PEACE
Woe unto America! Many of our nation’s highest leaders worship Satan, and are willing servants of EVIL. They are controlled by Satan, the god of this world (2nd Corinthians 4:4). Satan controls these men through the occult (i.e., “hidden” organizations). Jesus said “in secret have I done nothing” (John 18:20), because He had nothing to hide. Why the secrecy from our nation’s top leaders?
Skull and Bones is of the Devil. Freemasonry is of the Devil. Nearly 2,000 carefully selected government officials, corporate tycoons and other luminaries—men with power to shape the future—assemble privately every July in a redwood forest about 65 miles north of San Francisco. The meeting includes a somber ritual that features the Druidic burning of an effigy on the alter, chants from a robed chorus, and wild drinking and promiscuity.
The bizarre Pagan ritual of the Bohemian Grove—the Cremation of Care ceremony—is practiced by its members (all men), including both Presidents Bush, Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan, Alan Greenspan, Richard M. Nixon, Jimmy Carter, Walter Cronkite, Colin Powell, and Henry Kissinger to name but a few. The meeting is held every July. It is purported that Obama and McCain visited Bohemian Grove in July of 2008.
Jerri Lange has had a wealth of experience in television (both in front of the camera and behind the scenes). Her colorful career has yielded numerous awards in the field of broadcasting, and in April 1978 San Francisco State University issued its most prestigious honor, the Broadcast Preceptor Award, given by the Broadcast Communications Arts Department "in recognition of signal accomplishments, leadership and adherence to the highest standards in broadcasting" to three recipients: Walter Cronkite, Mike Wallace, and Jerri Lange.
Between 1969 and 1979, Jerri was host of a number of television programs in San Francisco which focused on community issues at KEMO, KBHK, KGO, and KQED (where she also served on the board). Jerri became the first black woman to host a national talk show, Turnabout, which was produced at the San Francisco public television station KQED and broadcast on 148 stations throughout the country.
Jerri was comfortable on camera, and comfortable interviewing superstars such as Shirley MacLaine, Sammy Davis, Jr., Rock Hudson, and others. On March 1, 1978 at KQED she was honored as "The Outstanding Broadcaster of the Year" by American Women in Radio and Television.
As a professor of Broadcast Communications Arts at San Francisco State University, Jerri taught Broadcasting and Affirmative Action, Women in Media, and Writing for Radio and Television. She also lectured a graduate class in Communications at Stanford University. She was granted an interview with Professor Arnold Tonybee, historian and member of the Royal Institute of International Studies in London.
