SORT BY Relevancy
Congressional reps, in their annual pique over the abuses of a couple of wireless companies, are attempting to once again throw out the broadband baby with the water of a corrupted few. Atty. Anthony Veach, from telecom industry law firm Bennet & Bennet PLLC joins us to discuss House bill 5376's threat to broadband usage in underserved communities.
Veach describes how the current FCC has made reforming its telecom industry-funded Lifeline grant program a priority, and discusses whether Congress's action threatens rather than helps create meaningful changes. Lifeline originally funded basic telephone service for low-income urban and rural households so no citizens would be economically forced to do without phone service. The Bush Administration expanded Lifeline to include wireless phone service as this was quickly displacing landlines. As smartphones become a primary device for accessing broadband, particularly in communities of color, Congress' action threatens to hit them particularly hard.
Listeners get an inside peek at Lifeline reforms to date, and what additional reforms are in the works. They also pick up some valuable insights into the Lifeline program, its main accomplishments over the years and some of the challenges the program faces as it tries to keep pace with technology changes not envisioned by Lifeline's original architects.
47 Percent of Wrongfully Convicted Exonerees Are African American. Black defendants continue to be over-represented among exonerees, particularly in sexual assault, robbery and drug cases. As we noted last year, the disparity is greatest in sexual assault cases. Black defendants constitute 25 percent of prisoners incarcerated for rape, but 61 percent of those exonerated for such crimes,” reported the National Registry of Exonerations, a joint project of the University of Michigan Law School and the Northwestern University Law School.
Racially disparate treatment has permeated the United States criminal justice system throughout history. During the Jim Crow era, blacks were legally barred from voter rolls in several southern states and were therefore barred from serving on juries. In this era of racial strife, the police, prosecution, defense attorneys, judges and jurors were almost always white. Cross-racial misidentifications, forced confessions, all-white juries, and blatant racism led to the wrongful convictions of countless innocent black people.

Folks, we've all heard about ISIS and their threats against the United States of America, it's citizens and to our way of life and Western Civilization. To them and to other Radical Muslim groups, we are the 'Infidels', worthy of nothing less than death if we do not submit and convert to Islam.
Recent widespread and credible news stories speak volumes toward the lengths that this radical, murdering group will go to 'assimilate' ANYONE who does not submit to the 'Will of Allah'.
We have two VERY SPECIAL GUEST HOSTS this evening to discuss this very real threat against the United States and our citizens. One of those guests is none other than Sheriff Gary Painter of Midland County, Texas, who has been the focus of numerous news stories because of his firm dedication to the safety of American Citizens. Sheriff Gary Painter has been quoted as saying “If it happens, we’re going to handle it, I can promise you that,” Painter told KMID-TV in Midland, Texas, “I have no doubt, that if any of these fools show up we’ll be glad to take care of them.”
Our other special guest hosst will be none other than John de Nugent, a recent guest host who is a strong proponent of the rights of White Americans and speaks towards the disparity that White Americans face in the fight for racial equality.
This will prove to be a VERY INTERESTING SHOW this evening!!
WE ARE ASKING CALLERS TO CALL IN AND ASK OUR HOSTS QUESTIONS THAT ARE IMPORTANT TO YOU AND FELLOW AMERICANS!!

Is the GOP still relevant or is it nothing but a dead elephant? I think we can put the GOP to bed. I've been saying this repeatedly but it all boils down to one thiNG. If you ask what the GOP is all about, you cannot come up with anything that they are for. Instead, you list the numerous things they are against. That is the essence of the GOP. They are a party against EVERYTHING.
They're against equal pay 4 equal work when it comes to the wage disparity between men + women. They'are against a fair + reasonable minimum wage. And they're certainly against any fair + reasonable low-cost, affordable health care. The list goes on + on.
At present, there are 3 GOP governors that are either indicted or will soon be so. The one already indicted - GOP Gov. Rick Perry/Texas - was charged w/"abuse of power". GOP Gov. Chris Christie of N.J. will soon be indicted for his role in the questionable closure of 2 of the 3 lanes of the George Washington Bridge last September for 4-days. The last GOP gov. facing indictment is Scott Walker/WI. During the recall campaign ag. Walker in 2012 he illegally solicited campaign contributions - personally and directly - from well-heeled, deep-pocketed donors + had them dump it all at the doorstep of Wisconsin Club For Growth, to cover his tracks. The Club went on to disburse this illegal money out to various right-wing groups that paid for tv and radio ads supporting Walker.
When all is said the Grand Old Party is a party that stands for absolutely nothing but they do stand for using everything at their disposal to work against anything that has the remotest chance of bearing fruit as enlightened legislation that would benefit the vast majority of Americans and that would raise the standard of living for the bottom 50%.
Healthy self esteem is a quality children learn in an environment where they are valued and encouraged. Unless such encouragement is strongly present in the home, a child living in a racially hostile environment may internalize feelings of inferiority which become a permanent part of the personality. Some areas of the USA, the deep south and even many northern urban areas, have become dangerous places for black males to live because of a pervasive climate of racial hostility. How is this affecting the self esteem, expectation of achievement, motivation, and sense of self worth of young men who are seeing themselves shot down daily by either supposed "gang" members or police who use the excuse that they are shooting a "gang" member? Parents who have been conditioned to accept being ignored and underserved by the elected officials whose salaries they pay through their tax dollars may not know how to instill in their children the instinct to fight back. How do we teach our children that they not only have a right to justice, but that they have the power to obtain it? How do we make voter education and voter registration part of the household culture? Tanjila Lippett of Orlando Florida shares her horrific story as a parent who did all the right things, yet saw her son shot down by police through the window of a church last January while he attended Bible study. A year later, this southern community remains too paralyzed in fear to mobilize against the offending officer, and Tanjila finds herself courageously standing alone in a quest for justice. How do families band together to provide a sense of safety for their children and how does a community fight back against centuries old traditions of racial oppression? Is it time to reach out to our greater extended human family across the country and across the world?
