Host Cyrus Webb welcomes recording artist Javan McCain aka Florida J to #ConversationsLIVE to discuss not just how he has used music to share his voice with the world and how social media has given him a platform to spread a message of positivity along the way.
From 1997 to 2008, he was a writer and editor for The Washington Times. In March 2008, he launched his individual blog, The Other McCain. The original Blogspot site recorded more than 1 million total visits in its first year of full-time operation and eclipsed the 3-million visit mark in November 2009. He was joined by co-blogger Smitty in March 2009. On Jan. 1, 2010, the site debuted in a new WordPress format. In November 2010, the site reached the 5-million-visit milestone.
McCain’s original reporting has included coverage of the 2012 presidential election campaign, the controversy surrounding the Kaitlyn Hunt sex-crime case, and the pattern of harassment against enemies of bomber-turned-progressive activist Brett Kimberlin.
A native of Atlanta and graduate of Jacksonville (Ala.) State University, McCain was awarded the George Washington Medal by the Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge in 1996 for his series of columns in the Rome (Ga.) News-Tribune about the National Standards for U.S. History. He and his wife have six children.

Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain had harsh words for protesters who shouted criticism at 91-year-old Henry Kissinger at a hearing Thursday.
"Get out of here, you low-life scum," the Arizona Republican told the protesters.
Kissinger, the diplomat who was secretary of state under President Richard Nixon, as well as President Ronald Reagan secretary of state George Shultz and Madeleine Albright, who was secretary of state under President Bill Clinton, were on hand for a hearing on global security challenges.

I am a 15 year involuntarily medical discharge in 1999 who received severance pay and 10% disability. I did not receive a retirement, as the military saw it beneficial for them to relieve me of duty before retirement was reached. I have been fighting for veterans rights and improper discharges since 1999. I tried to seek the help of Senator John McCain but he has been of no assistance to me and most veterans living in Arizona. I am the founder of EvincibleVets which is a newly organization that I am trying to put together to ensure no veteran is left behind. I have written many letters to the President, the VA Secretary, VA IG Team, VA Head Director, and including EVERY State representative in Arizona that matters. I have PHX VA recordings of doctors lying during my appointment which lead to falsifying my medical records. The PHX VA doctors have retaliated against me by denying medical care and medication. After providing this concrete information Senator McCain once again he threw it under the rug along with the PHX VA Head Director Mr. Grippen, who is now relieved of his duties at the PHX VA. This is the short version as there is much more.
Donald Trump is magical. He really is. It is miraculous the way he is able to create an entirely new narrative. None of it is made up. Trump is taking things that actually happened and spinning it in his favor and is dominating the news cycle once again.
What Trump has done in this election is turn things upside down. I love when people on both sides of the aisle complain when he uses certain tactics to gain political leverage, because it’s not what they’re used to. They’re normally the ones who use these tactics, especially the GOP. Now that Trump is turning the tables on them, they don’t now what to do. They’re confused. Flummoxed. Verklempt.
It’s hysterical, because Karl Rove was the master of mudslinging and dirty politics. So was Roger Ailes and Mary Matalin. They were the kings of using tactics against their opponents that people called questionable. Whether it’s Willie Horton or John McCain being crazy from being imprisoned for five years in Hanoi, Republicans have unapologetically used every lowly trick in the book to gain a political advantage.
Now you have Donald Trump using Karl Rove and Roger Ailes’ tried and true methods and is going completely over the top with them. The GOP is losing their minds. When Trump attacks Ted Cruz, Mark Levin and Glenn Beck lose their minds. They don’t know what to do, because they’re used to being in the driver’s seat.
The notion that Ted Cruz is not part of the establishment is insane. Whether you are a senator or a governor, if you have worked within the political system, you are part of the establishment. Just because Cruz is a senator who calls other people liars and does a 10 hour filibuster whilst reading Green Eggs and Ham and everybody in Congress hates his guts because he is a loudmouth a**hole, that doesn’t mean he isn’t part of the establishment. He is a senator.
Cliff and Digby discuss Trump and the fracturing GOP. Planned Parenthood developments---good news in Texas, but Ohio still a major battleground. The centrist Democrat leadership terrorized by Sanders, and the concomitant rise of the Bloomberg spectre.

Foot in mouth disease claims another victim. This one is not a first time offender. But the object of his insanity this time is Code Pink, his arch nemesis. Why are they his antithesis? McCain is what we in the peace-preferring normal human majority know that McCain is what we affectionately call a warmonger. This outburst was, coincidently, tied to defending a fellow warmonger.
Kissinger is known and reviled the world over as much more than a warmonger, but as a war criminal. Several countries have attempted to get an arrest warrant issued at the Hague, unsuccessfully. In lieu of actual justice, Medea Benjamin and her cadre of fearless activists took action the best way they know how, interrupting business as usual to draw attention to the injustice.
This week we explore the lives of this warmongering Odd Couple. Can two ageing white guys with a taste for brown blood live in a Senate hearing chamber? One declared a criminal, one just batshit crazy? We'll see.
As we prepare to celebrate Martin Luther King Day next Monday, it's a good time to assess where we are with Dr. King's dream. Have we achieved it? Are we closer? Might we be further away? Breitbart News columnist Jerome Hudson, an investigative reporter, political analyst, and social commenter, will weigh in on this, as well as the Black Lives Matter movement.
TRV will also discuss President Obama's State of the Union address, which takes place at the conclusion of our broadcast Tuesday, the next GOP presidential debate, which Fox Business will host on Thursday, the Ted Cruz citizenship issue, and more.
Tune in to The Right Voice with Adrienne Ross from 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Eastern/7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Central every Tuesday. Participate in the discussion by calling (646) 200-3715 to comment and/or ask questions. If you miss the live show, listen to the podcast at any time.
