    P1FD: Are You Transpartisan? Is the Coffee Party? 9 PM EST

    in Politics

    Press [1] For Democracy covers current political news from a transpartisan viewpoint.  In other words, putting the country before the party.  Extra emphasis on Money in Politics issues.

    Tonight:  Are You Transpartisan?  Is the Coffee Party?


    Since its inception, The Coffee Party’s mantra has revolved around transpartisanship. Its mandate was to create a safe place where voices from all parties and all political philosophies could meet to discuss and find workable solutions to our common problems. 

    To accomplish this lofty goal, our membership make-up needs to include Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Tea Partiers, Greens, Libertarians, Constitutionalists, Socialists, and others.  Today we're asking for your help in determining our progress. But to do so, we need your help.  Please reply to the following questions:


    To do so, please reply to the following questions:



    What political party do you belong to? (if any)
    Do you regularly engage members of other parties in civil, fact-based political dialog?
    If you do, what topics do you agree on?
    If you don’t, what’s stopping you?


    Tonight, on Press [1] for Democracy, we’ll analyze our results and see what conclusions can be drawn.  We’ll also look for ways to improve such exchanges where needed.  Listen live on line or call in and be heard at (646) 929-2495.  9 PM EST/7 PM CST/6 PM PST

    Transpartisan Nation Part II - LUNCH W LOUDEN Thursday 12 Noon Pacific

    in Politics

    Is the transpartisan strategy the way forward?


    There was once a man who set off to change the world, then discovered he didn’t have enough power to change the world.  So he decided to change the country...but again failed. So he decided to change his own community with no more luck.  He returned home to change his family, who resisted all attempts.  He decided to change himself...and succeeded!  


    As a result, his family was transformed, and that spilled out into his community. His community became a role model for other communities in the country, which was positively changed.  And as his country shifted priorities and policies, the world was changed.  


    We started this conversation three weeks ago in Transpartisan Nation Part 1. Questions we asked on that show included, “Can we let go of the point-scoring, win/lose paradigm?  Can we trust each other, provide compassion instead of competition and control our fear long enough to be the change we seek?”


    In our blog and today's show, we explore how does one become “transpartisan” and what does this really mean?

    Transpartisan Economics: Can we make it happen?

    in Politics Progressive

    Like most in America, my neighborhood back in Marietta, GA is a political hot-box, with folks whose beliefs range from staunch conservative to ultra-progressive, and everywhere in between.  But on most summer days, they can be found down at the neighborhood swim and tennis center, where parents converse about local issues such as schools, the proposed new mall, or the fact that police patrols had stepped up nicely after a string of vandalisms were reported.  Still others abandon politics for a while in favor of a doubles match against their longtime rival subdivision’s team.     And for those hours, these political opposites are caught up in solving common problems; whether how to fund the school's ailing arts program or how to break the guy with the one hundred mile per hour serve.  In short, the swim and tennis center provides fertile ground in which transpartisan* values are born and advanced. The questions are, can we apply those same principles to issues with larger geographic reach?  And can we make those in Washington understand and promote our goals and our objectives?   Tonight, we want to hear your transpartisan success stories and ways to apply those same process to the bigger issues that are facing the vast majority of Americans today.   Please join host Dan Aronson as we seek transpartisan solutions to our common problems.  Listen in live here here starting at 10PM EST / 7PM PST, or call in to voice your opinion at  (646) 929-2495.  And when you do, remember to Press [1] for Democracy.

    Transpartisan Nation - Pt 1, LUNCH W LOUDEN Thursdays 12 Noon Pacific

    in Politics

    I have recently found myself in the inquiry - do we have what it takes to be a transpartisan nation?


    Assuming that We The People have the same goal of an efficient and accountable government, what will it take for us to move beyond the blame game of “how we got here” and focus on making our shared goal a reality?  Can we let go of the point-scoring, win/lose paradigm?  Can we trust each other, provide compassion instead of competition and control our fear long enough to be the change we seek?


    Today’s LUNCH w LOUDEN invites you to join in this important conversation.  If we are to make sytemic and sustainable change in our political structure, it will take a strong majority of citizens with skills that promote respect, dignity and collaborative action.  We’d like to hear your stories from the field.  Are you the change?  Or are you locked in identifying the problem?

  • Want to Run for Congress? Listen to What Happened to This American: LWL 12/18/14

    in Politics

    Today we are sending you a show done by our Coffee Talk Radio partner, Tim Danahey. His daily shows this week are something of "an American self examination". 


    This episode, "Want to Run for Congress? Listen to What Happened to This American": 


    If you don’t believe money has taken over government, then listen to this story about how a citizen ran for Congress in Colorado’s 4th District. Vic Meyers is a long-time party loyalist who offered to be the candidate since no one wanted to oppose the established political party in this uncompetitive redistricted Congressional seat. Vic Meyers encountered party leaders who wouldn’t support him unless he had $200,000 seed money. A partisan newspaper ordered its reporter to cover a chihuahua race rather than interview him. When he organized fund-raisers, party leaders came in from other districts, discouraged people from contributing to Vic’s campaign, and poached contributions for other candidates in other districts. The stories continue in this damning indictment of money and politics in post-Citizens United America.


    You can find more episodes of the Tim Danahey Show here.

    How do We Heal the Heart of America? Lunch with Louden - 12/04.2014

    in Politics

    Breaking news has trumped our pre-planned program again!


    Let's talk about healing the heart of this republic's democracy with a little different focus: the grand jury decision to not indite an NYPD officer for the death of Eric Garner is on everyone's mind. The Lunch with Louden Facebook page has several perspectives posted.


    Our challenge today is not to be so right about something that, by definition, those who do not see things the same way are wrong. It is time to set aside our fear, our pain, and our anger so that we can un-conceal the problems that can only be solved together. 


    Join host Jeanene Louden and guest Christina Arechiga in this important conversation.

    Where Do We Go From Here: Lunch with Louden 11/27/14

    in Politics

    Unlike too many big box stores, Lunch with Louden is taking Thanksgiving Day off: instead, we are sharing a sneak peek of the Tim Danahey Show, our latest addition to Coffee Talk Radio. This episode, "Election Analysis with Egberto Willies: Where Do We Go From Here" was originally broadcast November 5th on another internet network.


    From the Tim Danahey Show post: Egberto Willies is a highly-respected national radio show host and political blogger with a constructive analysis of election results. One-sixth of all American eligible voters chose Republican candidates and the nation's political landscape has changed. What can we now expect from Republicans? What do the Democrats need to do? Has the effect of money in politics completely changed governance in America? Most important: What must we the citizens do?


    The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and nonfiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective. This internet radio show posts five days a week at Danahey.com.


    Tim Danahey was recently seated as the Director for Public and Member Outreach for Coffee Party USA.

    in Politics

    BREAKING 


    Just before airtime, Lunch with Louden connected with Dan Johnson, PANDAA Founder and citizen journalist with time on the ground in Fergusen. He, Bobby Rodrigo, and host Jeanene Louden discussed the drama (information and misinformation) as well as the social/cultural issues surrounding the pending grand jury decision regarding the legal fate of Darren Wilson, the officer that shot Michael Brown. Mr. Johnson's comments were insightful and informative.


    Articles referenced in our conversation are now posted on the Lunch With Louden Facebook page.


    If you tuned in to hear the advertised topic, "Where Do We Go From Here" fear not! The episode will be available to stream Thursday, November 27th (yes, Thanksgiving).
