An episode on Valiant comics. The imprint started by former Marvel Editor-in-Cheif around the same time as Image comics. Notable for their surprisingly mature approach to writing and creation, as in actual depth as opposed to violence and nudity.
How three nearly forgotton franchises from the 60's that couldn't have been more different got stitched together into a coherent superhero universe. How this company grew to become a solid #4 publisher during the speculator boom, and how it all came crashing down when the company was sold to Acclaim... yes the sub-par video game company.
Born in Tennessee, Jimmy Valiant started wrestling in 1964 as Big Jim Valen, which morphed into Handsome Jimmy Valiant when he wrestled for the World Wide Wrestling Federation in the 1970s. He soon formed a dominant tag team with his "brother," Johnny Valiant. One of the dominant wrestlers in Memphis, Valiant feuded with the likes of Jerry Lawler and even recorded a song, "The Ballad of Handsome Jimmy." In the 1980s, Valiant morphed once again into "Boogie Woogie Man" Jimmy Valiant. Today, Valiant runs Boogie's Wrestling Camp in Shawsville, Virginia.
Join us for Handsome Jimmy Valiant, The Boogie Woogie Man, as he talks wrestling over his career and tells stories of his time in professional wrestling. Jimmy is a member of the WWE Hall of Fame class of 1996 going in as a member of the infamous Valiant Brothers. They held many Tag Titles over their career and Jimmy himself made another name for himself solo in his one mans army against paul jones.
WWE Hall of Famer Handsome Jimmy Valiant, the Boogie Woogie Man himself, joins World Domination with Terry Garvin Simms. He talks about his start in the business, his run as WWWF Tag Team Champions with Luscious Johnny Valiant, his trips to Memphis and the Carolinas... and how a certain burger with a "sesame seed bun" led to a GIGANTIC misunderstanding with Jimmy Hart and Jerry Lawler.
And in the "what does that have to do with anything?" department, Bob and Terry take an early look at the Belmont Stakes, and discuss the possibilites of a Triple Crown winner.
Adam Milat-Meyer is an independent researcher who's been interested in human contact with aliens since he was a child growing up in Brooklyn during the 1970s and 80s.
One of the stories that always moved him was the story and legend surrounding Valiant Thor. Valiant Thor looks human, but he has some key physiological differences. He is from Venus. He worked for the U.S. government for some time in the 1950s before leaving in his spaceship. Thor had level-1 security clearance in secret government projects. He helped build underground military bases and worked at the famed Area 51 base.
But has he returned? Milat-Meyer suggests so. Valiant Thor is alive and well and you can find out about him and his crew by subscribing to the newsletter run by Julie Ann Stranges (Chair of NICUFO.org).

Faith was the break out star of Valiant's Harbinger. A psionically gifted “psiot” she has always aspired to greatness. Now this once-ordinary teenager is taking control of her destiny and becoming the hard-hitting hero she’s always known she can be – complete with a mild-mannered secret identity, unsuspecting colleagues, and a day job as a reporter that routinely throws her into harm’s way! Well, at least she thought it would… When she’s not typing up listicles about cat videos, Faith makes a secret transformation to patrol the night as the City of Angels’ own leading superhero – the sky-soaring Zephyr! But flying solo is going to be tougher than she ever thought.

Jimmy was first to enter the sports-entertainment world, debuting in 1964 after training with fellow Hall of Famer Verne Gagne. Johnny followed soon after in 1967, and together they won several regional tag team championships. The Valiants entered WWE in the early 1970s, and at times they seemed unbeatable. Together, the pair captured the World Tag Team Championship in 1974 and held them for just over a year. Later, a third brother, "Gentleman" Jerry, joined them, teaming with Johnny to once again win the World Tag Team Championship in 1979. The Valiants were just one of the dozen tag teams that fellow 1996 Hall of Fame inductee Captain Lou Albano guided to the World Tag Team Championship in his career.
Jimmy is also an accomplished author of his own Autobiography entitled, "WOO....MERCY DADDY! Welcome to my world the Jimmy Valiant story. We talk about his storied career in wrestling and what he is up to today
The outrageous policy decisions of the administration has now, in essence, told the Border Patrol to stop enforcing our immigration laws. This is the astonishing claim made by the Brandon Judd, the president of the union that represents our valiant Border Patrol when he testified before a House Immigration Subcommittee hearing on the topic: “Another Surge of Illegal Immigrants Along the Southwest Border: Is this the Obama Administration’s New Normal?” The Washington Examiner's reported “Border agent: 'We might as well abolish our immigration laws altogether'”
Additionally on Feb. 3, 2016 CAPS (Californians for Population Stabilization) posted my article, “ Orders of Deportation (Removal) = Orders of Protection for Americans.”
The Social Contract just published its Winter 2016 edition. It included my article, “Sanctuary Cities Endanger - National Security and Public Safety.”
