    Where Do You Stand in Faith When Tragedy Strikes Close to Home?

    in Christianity

    Gene Kiepura, a retired railroad machinist, came face to face with the reality of where he stood in his faith when his 14 year old son, Jacob (Jake) was killed on a missions trip to Mexico.  As if the death of his son (who was killed along with five others) was not enough to contend with, Eugene also had to deal with corrupt and greedy local authorities and US Embassy staff.

    Yet, his greatest challenge of all was his faith in God. Believers, who expected him to be a pillar of great strength and a prime example seemed to undermine or even shorten the grieving process.  Gene, along with his wife (41 years of marriage to his highschool sweetheart) Jan, struggled through the tragedy together, along with their other children.

    Gene's transparency about his faith and his struggles will cause one to stand back and look hard at their own faith.  Listen to how God intervened, strengthening Gene in such unexpected and amazing ways that only God alone is glorified!

    There is never enough talk today about Labor day except for labor day sales. Labor day is a celebration of the unionizing of America which built a better America for all. When employees are valued, they are satisfied, and they perform accordingly. The unionizing of the working class resulted in better lives across America, and has contributed to better lives in other countries. Made in America was the proud slogan of labor days past. Until Labor Day became a federal holiday in 1894, laborers who chose to participate in parades had to forfeit a day's wages.

    It's Not The Law: A History of non-Existent Gun Laws

    in Politics

    Join us this evening as Wayne Barbuto joins the show to discuss the fraudulent gun laws that are currently in place and those they are trying to pass on state and federal level.
    What would you do if you found out that all the gun laws that have been passed were null and void?  That your compliance with those laws is considered voluntary?
    Wayne has written several extensively documented and resourced books the newest of which is “Its Not The Law”! Click here to purchase:   Its Not The Law!
    Included in this book is the chapter on “The true objective of gun control“. The ATF is a private foreign corporation headquartered in Puerto Rico…..just like the IRS.
    Bio: Wayne Frank Barbuto
    I have little formal education, which has proven to be an advantage, considering the dumbing down process used in the government schools.
    I am a Craftsman and Prototype Machinist with over 40-years experience, and owned my own machine shop for over 20-years. I am considered by many to be a Gunsmith, but my knowledge in this field is limited to the guns I like, mainly those of John Browning and Eugene Stoner design. I have personally designed and built many long-range rifles of bullpup design chambered for the .50 BMG (Browning Machine Gun) anti-tank cartridge.
    In the year 2000 I was unlawfully attacked by the Puerto Rican-based BATF and accused of Manufacturing Firearms without a license, a non-existent  law. Since then I have focused my attention on exposing the devils behind this criminal attack.
    I have written a book titled, “It’s Not The Law” in which I tell my story, and explain a number of important principles presented as mini-lessons in more than 100 chapters which average 3-4 pages each.
