    Jessica Barrett shares her struggles organizing the powerful red county. The only red county south of the famous I-4 cooridor. She began a Young Dems of America Chapter in Polk, and a lil history folks so you can get your head wrapped around the courage this lady has. Big Ben HIll Griiffin, who built the "Gator Swampbowl" for the UF. He owns cattle, potassium farms, you name it. Well he has a Grandaughter named, Katherine Harris, (who grew up in Bartow Polk County) you may recall the name for she was the Sec of State of Fl who called the race for Bush against AL Gore in 2000. COincidence, we think not....


    Jessica and I left a Purple county, just ready to claim it's voting rights, although voter suppresion and collusion to committ fraud was seen on 2010. Very powerful people control outcomes, but in the midterm 2010 we almost won a congressional race due to our high volunteerism and indeed Polk County was the ONLY County called out the night before the elction fro the exceptional work the county did. It was the people, and Jessica started the way. I can't wait to do this interview! Hope you will join us for encouragment on mid-terms and take away suggestions that worked for us In Florida 2010!

    CRITICAL CONVERSATIONS: State of the Union to States Rights

    in Politics

    President Obama delivered his sixth State of the Union Address last night.  Was he truthful when he said "The shadow of crisis has passed, and the State of the Union is strong."

    From the State of the Union to State's Rights, panelists Attorney James Edwards and national writer and Communities journalist Al Maurer, of Colorado, will be talking state's rights - the legal issue, not the social. Colorado is being sued by adjoining states over their legalization of marijuana. Appellate courts are wavering on states rights when it comes to federally mandated rights to abortion.  Can a state say that "gay marriage" is not legal, while an adjoining state says it is?

    FREEDOM’S GATE: Has Race Baiting Destroyed Martin Luther King’s Dream

    in News

    In 2015 Rev. Martin Luther King would be thinking about America the legacy of his struggles and if his dream were still relevant today. The celebrations that are being held in his honor throughout the nation are sadly tarnished by what race baiting has accomplished over the past several years.


    Rev. King and the leaders of the civil rights movement of the late 1950’s and 1960’s did not seek out individuals of questionable conduct and attempt to raise them up as heroes of a movement to free black people from racism and prejudice.  If he and others of that time had done that, the civil rights movement would have been dead on arrival.


    Join Lonnie Poindexter, national civil rights leader and celebrated host of the Freedom’s Journal Radio Show along with Darla Sutton Dawald, noted Tea Party leader, and head of One Nation Rising. They will be discussing the impact and effect of race baiting in America and how Rev. Martin Luther’s King’s legacy and dream can be recaptured.


    Later in the hour the guests will tackle just where in the world the traditional family hour in American homes has gone.  Has the absence at the dinner table had a damaging impact in families and in America?  Who or what is at fault and has its absence destroyed the fabric of home life and traditional values?  Is Hollywood, Gangster Rap music and violent video games part of the problem?


    We will discuss possible solutions to help lay the foundation for recapturing family hour in American homes on Freedom’s Gate, live Wednesday at 6:30pm EST and then available on demand. A production of Communities Digital News
