    Dr. Richard Swier-Worked with IDF and consulted with Ronald Regan

    in Politics

    Dr. Rich is a “conservative with a conscience.” He believes that “extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice and moderation in the pursuit of justice is not virtue.” His idol is former Arizona Senator Barry Goldwater. Goldwater was a true conservative who wrote this in his book “The Conscience of a Conservative“:


    “I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution, or that have failed their purpose, or that impose on the people an unwarranted financial burden. I will not attempt to discover whether legislation is “needed” before I have first determined whether it is constitutionally permissible. And if I should later be attacked for neglecting my constituents’ “interests,” I shall reply that I was informed that their main interest is liberty and that in that cause I am doing the very best I can.”


    Lt.Col Swier feels America is heading into an Orwellien society and feels the world is on the Brink.

    "Most Americans have no real understanding of the operation of the international money lenders. The accounts of the Federal Reserve System have never been audited. It operates outside the control of Congress and manipulates the credit of the United States." -- Sen. Barry Goldwater (Rep. AZ) What is the Federal Reserve and how does it operate? How did the Federal Reserve come to be? Why do the Majority of Americans know nothing about the Federal Reserve? "Every Congressman, every Senator knows precisely what causes inflation...but can't, [won't] support the drastic reforms to stop it [repeal of the Federal Reserve Act] because it could cost him his job." -- Robert A. Heinlein, Expanded Universe Why are elected officials silent on this issue? "It is well that the people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning." -- Henry Ford Join us tonight right here on The Gospel of Truth @8pm/cst, so that we may answer these questions and more importantly get you to start asking your own questions.

    Living History with Guest Host Dave From Massachusetts

    in History

    With my co-hosts Heidi and Dave on a well-deserved vacation, frequent caller Dave Hamilton - a/k/a Dave From Massachusetts - will be my guest host on Tuesday.

    This episode will be the first of a long line of oral history conversations I've been wanting to do for a while, talking to ordinary people about their experiences and how they remember and were effected by histoical events that happened in their lifetimes.

    Please call 347-850-8445 to join the conversation.

    About our guest:

    Dave Hamilton calls himself the ultimate baby boomer, Vietnam War boy. Raised in Indiana, the Philippines, Hong Kong, and New Jersey. In 1969 Dave graduated from Villanova University, "Magna Cum Barely". 


    After the US Army as a medic who was lucky and avoided Vietnam, Dave moved to Massachusetts and held a variety of sales and marketing jobs. In the early nineties he returned to Hong Kong with his wife and family, and moved back to Massachusetts in 1994. Dave retired a little over a year ago, working part-time which he believes beats both not working and working full time. 


    Dave's politics are clearly left of center since being a Goldwater Girl. He has voted for GOP governors but not recently. Never voted for a GOP presidential candidate. Did vote for Ed Brooke, only GOP senate vote. 


    Dave considers his public school teacher children his greatest accomplishment.

    Goldwaterism Fifty Years Later

    in Politics

    Goldwater’s base was in the South and West, where his vote against the Civil Rights Act and in favor of states’ rights endeared him to a white electorate, and on the whole, Goldwater’s geographic and demographic coalition has endured within the GOP. Democrats owe a debt of gratitude to Goldwater for creating a near-consensus among African-Americans for their party. In an ad that was produced but never aired, a Ku Klux Klan leader, with a burning cross and hooded figures filling the screen, is quoted as denouncing “niggerism, Catholicism, Judaism—all the isms” and in the same breath saying, “I like Barry Goldwater; he needs our help.” Dr LARRY  SABATO

    RIP JArch + Pro Era's Junior B, Questlove is wrong, Event Previews & your calls

    in Music

    Tough week for local hip hop collectives. J Arch, affiliated with several movements including End of the Weak and Team HOMI, lost his life while Brooklyn's Pro Era-based crew suffered another untimely death, as Joey Badass cousin and tour manager Junior B died in an accident. 


    Several members of J Arch's crew were in attendance and performing at the album release event for Hasan Salaam's "Live in Black and White" at Webster Hall. The combination album release, concert event, toy and coat drive was punctuated by recent events surrounding the non-aquittal for New York police officer Daniel Pantaleo in the chokehold death of Eric Garner. Much of Salaam's material, and those of others on the bill, circulate around social injustice issues, and it was a powerful event in that regard, one that included support by and for organizations such as the Center for Domestic Violence, CopWatch and others.


    This particular event points out a problem with some of those who criticize hip hop for not being vocal enough in response to social issues, recently expounded on by Questlove. While Questlove was calling out bigger stars, the problem is that such criticism fails to take into account those who ARE doing great work in the field.


    We'll talk about all these things tonight, as well as preview some upcoming events, and as always, take your calls.


    Tonight's episode of The NY Hip Hop Report is brought to you by SuperFly: My Untold Story of Hip-Hop, Gloria Goldwater's fascinating look back at the history of her SuperFly magazine, which documented the early explosion of hip hop music. The book is available now!

    "Real Hip Hop," Lil Wayne/Zulu Nation, A$AP Ferg, Ferguson reaction + your calls

    in Music

    Lots going on in hip hop music and culture, in and out of our New York area. Call in and speak your mind!


    This week, we'll respond to a critic of our coverage on our mothership site, Birthplace Magazine. While most of the NY-area hip hop living audience and independent musicians who follow us are extremely supportive of our work, one had a problem with our coverage, going so far as to claim we don't represent "real hip hop."


    Despite an accompanying asinine derogatory comment, we're going to talk about it. We'll defend our coverage of course, but also discuss the uselessness of the phrase "real hip hop," and how idiotic it is to critique anyone for not adhering to something that simply doesn't exist.


    Along the lines of hip hop purist and traditionalist leanings, we'll also talk about Lil Wayne, who has become a member of the Universal Zulu Nation. We'll discuss what this might mean for hip hop music and culture as a whole.


    We'll also discuss new releases, including the lastest from A$AP Ferg and others.


    And we'll cover the recent non-indictment in Ferguson, over the shooting death of Michael Brown, and speak a bit about how artists & organizations should proceed when it comes to dealing with the aftermath of this situation.


    All that, with YOUR CALLS!

    Those items, our discussions, upcoming event previews, and your calls LIVE on New York hip hop's #1 talk radio show, The NY Hip Hop Report.

    Rick Perlstein: The Invisible Bridge

    in Politics Progressive

    Historian Rick Perlstein returns to Virtually Speaking to discuss his new book, The Invisible Bridge.  Blogger extraordinaire Digby joins us as guest interviewer.  RIck has described Digby this way:


    My other favorite political writer, Heather Parton, blogs under the name “Digby.” Daily for over 10 years she’s been unleashing a fire hose of brilliance on the fecklessness of the Democrats, the craziness of the Republicans and especially the way that what we now call the “culture wars” has been seared into our national DNA at least since the Civil War. In the acknowledgments to “Nixonland,” I called her the other half of my brain.


    We're delighted to have them both here tonight.
