SORT BY Relevancy
Critical Conversations works beyond the headline, removes the agenda and talks about what today's news really means.
Join us as Senior Editor Jim Picht and Editor in Chief Lisa Ruth discuss the top issues of the week, going beyond the headlines for an in-depth discussion and analysis of this week’s top stories.
Ruth, a former CIA officer and an expert on international relations, and Picht, a PhD economist and professor at Louisiana Honors College, will start by discussing the implications of the dueling Obamacare rulings this week. What does it mean now, and what does it mean for the long term? Are we headed for a Supreme Court showdown?
Business editor and long-time investor Terry Ponick will then join them for a discussion of the recent statements by Fed Chair Janet Yellen, including the domestic and international impact of tightening the money supply. What do her conflicting signals on unemployment and inflation mean? What does all of this mean for the markets and investors?
Political columnist Jennifer Oliver O’Connell will talk about the illegal immigration protests across the country this weekend and examines why Hollywood activists are so far mute on the border crisis. What is behind the public reaction? Will Congress address the crisis before the recess next week?
Finally, travel expert Bob Taylor will look at the impact of global events, including the air tragedies, on travel. He will also address the growing popularity of river cruises, which is changing the way people travel.

Meghan McGill is the niece of Chris Derose who is the founder of Last Chance for Animals. Last Chance for Animals began in 1984 now it has been 30 years since they have been fighting for animals.
A fixture in animal rights movement for over a decade, Meghan McGill has played an integral role at Last Change for Animals (LCA) for the past eight years. As a longtime vegan and animal-welfare advocate, Meghan serves as LCA’s campaigns manager and works to educate the public on issues of animal cruelty and abuse.
Meghan has been instrumental in leading some of the largest protests in the country against circuses, the fur industry and Puppy mills. She oversaw the ban of fur in West Hollywood and the closing of multiple high-end pet stores in Los Angeles area. Meghan regularly participles in speaking engagements and outreach events with children and schools, and is committed to demonstrating compassion for all beings that need a voice in our world.
Founded in 1984 by Hollywood actor Chris DeRose, Last Chance For Animals (LCA) has its roots in fighting and exposing the inherent cruelty of vivisection. In the organization's early years, DeRose led teams of dedicated activists employing non-violent strategies modeled after social movements led by such leaders as Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr.
Using "Direct Action," LCA activists engaged in peaceful protest with determined resolve... to make sure their voices would be heard. When direct action was still a new concept in the American animal rights movement, every well-planned demonstration achieved tremendous media coverage. By the late 1980s, LCA was earning a national reputation for its no-nonsense approach to exposing animal cruelty.

GREETINGS, PEOPLE OF THE WORLD - WE ARE ANONYMOUS
There are many theories about us. That we’re anarchists, kids, crazy film-buffs that saw one too many superhero movies. The truth is, we are all these things. Anonymous is a symbol, like the flag a country flies. The flag is the symbol of the country. Our masks are our national identity. We are not Anonymous – we represent the ideals of Anonymous. Truth, freedom and the removal of censorship. Like any symbol, we affix it wherever we go, as you have seen from street protests.
We have no leaders, civilians or soldiers. We are all one. We run operations because that is what the group decides to do. We choose targets because that is what the people who represent the ideals of Anonymous want to fight for. The world is in trouble. We see it every day – war, poverty, murder. Every day we are bombarded with news and images, as we sit at home safe in the knowledge that we are powerless, that “better” minds are dealing with the situation.
But in cyberspace we are different. We helped free the people of Egypt. We helped fight against Israel as it attempted genocide. We exposed more than 50,000 paedophiles around the world. We fought the drug cartels. We have taken to the streets to fight for the rights you are letting slip through your fingers.
In today’s world we are seen as terrorists or at best dangerous anarchists. We’re called “cowards” and “posers” for hiding behind masks, but who is the real poser? We take away the face and leave only the message. Behind the mask we could be anyone, which is why we are judged by what we say and do, not who we are or what we have.
We exist without nationality, skin colour or religious bias. You wage wars, lie to us and try to make us believe it’s for our own good.
Yet we’re the criminals?
Samiyyah Saafir-Muhammad was born Jacqueline Glover in New York City in 1951. After spending her early years in foster care, moving four times before the age of three, she settled in with her aunt, following her father’s passing.
While still in elementary school Samiyyah took an interest in helping other students do well, joining “The Future Teachers’ Club” in the fifth grade. As a high school student, Samiyyah became aware her people’s struggle for freedom—witnessing civil rights demonstrations, protests, assassinations and riots—and decided she wanted to help somehow. It was in this atmosphere that she went off to Northeastern University in Boston where she majored in Education. Her stay there was short-lived, however, as she was introduced to the teachings of The Honorable Elijah Muhammad and thereafter joined the Nation of Islam. Within the Nation of Islam’s Muhammad University, Samiyyah underwent educational training and worked as a teacher’s assistant.
Since 2005, Samiyyah has had the privilege of serving as the Directress at Muhammad University of Islam in Atlanta, which serves students from Pre-K to the eighth grade. She has been blessed to carry on the 84-year educational tradition, which was started by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and his brave followers in the 1930’s.
A widow after 35 years of marriage, Samiyyah presently enjoys the blessing of her and her husband’s nine children: six sons and three daughters, all of whom attended or are attending HBCUs. Samiyyah has been a mother to not only her nine children, but also to her two stepchildren, her nieces and nephews, her eight grandchildren and countless other children and adults in the community who come to her for advice, wisdom and guidance. Affectionately called MamaMiyyah, Samiyyah’s house is never empty

OUR LORD AND SAVIOR GOD ALMIGHTY USED THESE WORDS AND PHRASES TO DESCRIBE THE EXACT SCENARIO THAT WOULD BE TAKING PLACE ON EARTH BEFORE HE RETURNS TO SET UP A THOUSAND YEARS OF PEACE.
BIRTH PANGS. THE BEGINNINGS OF SORROWS. FEARFUL SIGHTS. SIGNS IN THE HEAVENS SUN, MOON AND STARS.
THE SEAS ROARING. MENS HEARTS FAILING THEM. POWERS OF THE HEAVEN AND THE EARTH SHAKING. PERPLEXITY OF NATIONS. JUST LIKE THE DAYS OF NOAH. CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION. THAT THE TRUE CHURCH OF GOD WOULD BE HATED BY ALL NATIONS AND MEN. FALSE CHRIST'S AND SPIRITUAL DECEPTION LIKE NEVER BEFORE.
WE ARE LIVING IN THE BIBLICAL PROPHETIC TIMES OF THE END OF THE AGE. ALL THESE PROPHECIES ARE COMING TO PASS DAILY WORLDWIDE. AS WE SEE TIGHTER SECURITY AND ARMED FORCES, ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, OVER POPULATION, PRIVACY BREACHES. PROTESTS AND CORRUPT GOVERNMENTS.
THE MONEY FAILING, A NEW WORLD ORDER, CASHLESS SOCIETIES, TAX AND WAGE EARNING FRAUD, SEXUAL IMMORALITY, IGNORING GOD'S COMMANDMENTS, AND OTHER IDOLATROUS ABOMINATIONS.
WORSENING AND FREQUENT WEATHER. KINGDOM FIGHTING AGAINST KINGDOM, WARS AND RUMORS OF WARS, PESTILENCES, FAMINES, INCREASING LAWLESSNESS, THE LOVE OF MANY WAXING COLD, SCOFFERS AND MOCKERS, PLAGUE, DROUGHT, SUPER INFLATION, TERROR, CHAOS, TENSIONS.
PERILOUS TIMES UNPARALLELED IN HISTORY . ALL THESE THINGS MUST TAKE PLACE. BUT THE END IS NOT YET.
ARE YOU READY TO MEET THE LORD IN THE AIR AT THE LAST TRUMP? CHURCH OF JESUS THE CHRIST OF LATTER DAY SAINTS?
YOUR SALVATION IS DRAWING NIGH. IT IS MORE CLOSER NOW THAN WHEN WE FIRST GOT SAVED!
