    EBOLA, ISIS AND THE SECRET SERVICE DABACLE - ACCIDENTAL OR ON PURPOSE?

    in Religion

    Last week we had some serious technical difficulties. We're going to try to do the same show again and hope that Blogtalk has their act together tonight. Here's an overview of the show tonight.


    We have a lot of things coming against us these days. Islamists are giving themselves new names and terrorizing the World. It appears that Ebola is being purposfully spread throughout the United States. The Secret Service appears to be deliberately bungling its care of the Dictator in Chief. These things are not accidental and appear deliberate. This Saturday we'll look into these things and more on Opposing The Matrix. As always, listeners are encouraged to call in and participate. The show airs at 6PM Pacific and 9PM Eastern on Saturday night. Hope to hear you there.

    Hidden lives of the Presidents, as told by the Secret Service!

    in Politics

    Secret Service agents, like human surveillance cameras, have a front-row seat to the private lives of our Presidents and their families. Ronald Kessler's new book tells that eye-opening, uncensored story. Tune in to hear from him first-hand.


    Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?

    There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.

    Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.

    But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!

    If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you! 


    It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!
