    in Politics Progressive

    Ted Chabasinski  is an attorney and human rights activist in Berkeley, California.  In 1944, as a 6-year-old boy so intellectually gifted he jumped from first grade to third he was taken from his home in the Bronx to New York’s Bellevue Hospital where he was pronounced “schizophrenic”, because his mother had been labelled “schizophrenic”. There he began a series of 20 electro-convulsive shock treatments. The boy, Ted Chabasinski, was one of hundreds of children used in ECT experiments. Tests since condemned as barbaric. He remained an inmate in a state psychiatric hospital until the age of seventeen. Chabasinski survived and became active in the civil rights movement and ultimately an attorney.

    Ted Cruz and the Attack on His Experience

    in Politics Conservative

    With Ted Cruz's announcement that he's running for president, all knives have come out to attack him.  And it's not just the mainstream media and Democrats.  In fact, some of the worst has come from the establishment GOP and right-wing media.  Once again, the right attacks as much as the left does, in fact maybe even more, to destroy a candidate whom they fear. 


     


    And the consistent message they are all touting is that Cruz has no experience and is no different than Barack Obama was when he ran for president in 2008.  We’ll take a look at some of the experience that Ted Cruz brings to his bid for the presidency.

    in Football

    Quote from the movie Moneyball, Scout: "We're all told at some point in time that we can no longer play the children's game, we just don't...we don't know when that's gonna be. Some of us are told at eighteen, some of us are told at forty, but we're all told."


    If you look to continue your dream the Winnipeg Blue Bombers are holding tryouts and take very seriously the use of these one day camps. Assistant GM & Director of Player Personnel Ted Goveia finds these as a rich source of scouting and adding players to his roster. With the NFL Draft a few weeks away not all players will make it, leaving the door open to play professional football in Canada in the CFL.

    in News

    Everyone knows Dr. Ted Broer - or should know of him. In years past, he shared the same speakers' platform with politicians, Hollywood celebrities, and global leaders. That experience has given him special insight into current events. His education and experience has given him insight and understanding into our current state of health - personally and as a nation.


    We know "something bad this way comes." Do you know what it is? What it could be? There are many potential "triggers" that could change the face of the world as we know it. We must be prepared to the best of our ability in all aspects for what is coming, from our personal health to our spiritual health as well as our practical preparations.


    Dr. Broer will share his analysis of the events of the last month and offer his analysis of these potential "trigger points." We'll also discuss what we can do to help ourselves prepare for what is to come, whatever it might be. A more in-depth look at the plans of the global elite, and how we are the chess pieces in a real-life version of the global game of Risk.
