Dr. Chaps reports on these important issues:
* An appeals court rules that the NSA cannot collect your secret phone data.
* Secretary of Defense denies that he’s planning to take over Texas
* The Pentagon is accused of hiding reports about sex crimes.
Since the murder of our brothers & sisters in Charleston safety/self-defense has become a major talking point around the country. Places of worship have often been considered a place of sanctuary since the beginning of time. After this massacre it’s hard to believe that anywhere is safe & it sparks the question, how do we protect ourselves? This week will discuss our thoughts on fire arms & self-defense on this week’s episode of Tee & Jay Radio.
Self defense law expert, Andrew Branca, joins Jim Paris Live. Branca discusses in detail a number of scenarios and how the right of self defense would apply. What is quickly apparent is that there are a wide array of public misconceptions about self defense and the law. How much force does the law allow when defending yourself? What is proportionality and why is it a central consideration in self defense law? The reality of widely differing laws on self defense in different states. Can you claim self defense when defending another person? What did George Zimmerman do wrong?
Self-defense can be a crucial part of strategies to prevent rape. Yet most self-defense courses taught on college campuses don't prepare students for the violence they are most likely to face -- sexual assaults perpetrated by people they know. Please tune in and support our guest, Deva Hoffman. Ms. Hoffman has more than 15 years of self-defense training, Deva Hoffman has a passion for helping women learn how to defend themselves. Deva learned firsthand the importance of self-defense after almost becoming the victim of a random violent crime in 1988 when a man attempted to pull her into his car in a grocery store parking lot. Since then, Deva has been on a mission to help women avoid becoming victims of crime and abuse.

If Instagram is for Kim Kardashian’s ass, Twitter is for Donald rants and Facebook is for your mom, where can you turn for a social media experience that won’t leave you brain dead?
Until now, nowhere. You were at Kimye’s mercy.
But with the launch of EdCast, a social knowledge network designed to get you to stop drooling, leaders such as former secretary of defense William Perry, music mogul Scooter Braun, Mitch Kapor of Kapor Capital, and director of MIT entrepreneurship Joi Ito are broadcasting and sharing information. (For a full list of EdCast all-stars, click here)
Karl Mehta is in the house to share his ideas with us. I think the timing is perfect for a social media network for thinkers.
SEC. OF STATE John "Vietnam" Kerry has been busy this week, trying to convince members of the Senate Foreign Relations and Armed Services committees as well as House Foreign Affairs members why Obama's plan to "halt" Iran's nuclear weapons is a "good deal."
And both leaders in the House and Senate are getting hammered by conservatives for their flaccid responses to issues that matter. As reported by David Limbaugh "While President Obama accelerates his increasingly radical agenda, the GOP, despite its congressional majority, can barely muster an objection, let alone block his momentum."
Tonight - the backstories to those and more with Capitol Hill insider Elizabeth Letchworth Chryst, the first woman to have been elected US Secretary to the Senate.

Why should you care about Marc MacYoung?
He grew up in LA among (and has spend 40+ years dealing with) people who don't hesitate to use violence to get what they want, on a whim.
He has studied multiple styles of martial arts singe age 10, and has broken down and reworked the most street-effective elements into a system he and his equally-badass wife Dianna ("There's a reason the toilet seat is put down in our house," Marc says) teach, called Dango Jiro ("Mulligan Stew").
He was first shot at when he was 15, and since survived more than one attempt on his life - including professional contracts - some work-related, some personal.
He's worked as the director of a correctional institute, a bodyguard, a bouncer, and worked security at multiple-day events with tens of thousands of people in attendance.
He is considered a leading expert on surviving high-risk situations, and has written multiple books on the subject, used by academies, schools, police departments, and military academies world-wide.
As an authority on how violence happens, he is often called upon as a professional, expert witness in both criminal and civil cases.
So... we're not 100% sure we want him to have our home address.
But we ARE 500% certain we'll have a great chat with the guy, and it seems likely we can get a few good, bloody stories out of him - we get the feeling he's at least as funny as he is knowledgable and skilled.
Whether you're Joe Average or Black Belt Jones, join us for more than you ever wanted to know about the harsh realities of street violence with Marc "Animal" MacYoung!

After reading the entire so-called Iran Deal (ObamaDeal) I find it to be very sour. So many questions, so few answers. So few restrictions, so many ways to side step them. Join me as we look at what is in the deal and what is not in the deal. Let's identify who really supports the deal and opposes the deal. Surely President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry are playing a belated April Fools Day joke.
Join in the conversation in the real-time online Chat Room or live on air by calling 855-236-2486.
