SORT BY Relevancy
Claire Conner returns to MOMochat to talk about the alarming inroads the radical right has made into the Republican party, Congress and statehouses around the country. Claire is the author of Wrapped in the Flag, a memoir of growing up in a family of John Birch Society leaders.
"The John Birch Society does influence many right wingers," says Claire.
Claire says that a helpful Birch Society research assistant provided her with background materials for her book. "She told me that the Society has had the largest growth in its history since Barack Obama's campaign."
MOMocrats Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills host the political discussion from the progressive point of view. Produced by Engender Media Group.
The world seems to be at a standstill. It is scary and the more frightened we are the easier it is to cling to extremism.Dr. Gary Penn explores this dynamic. He tries to find a way towards a rational position, within individuals and nations. How we understand problems between our inner circle mirrors how nations deal with how nations deal with issues between other nations. and between.
What is it that triggers genocide done in the name of “patriotism” or religion?
We’re honored to have Cherie McGinn, an extraordinary educator who has specialized in AP European History and Comparative Religions, join us during the first hour of the show. Cherie will enlighten us about historic tragedies, with a focus on the Armenian genocide that took the lives of 1.5 million Armenians, mostly Christian.
We will also identify the steps that allow people -- like religious practioners, homosexuals, intellectuals and other groups -- to become victims of genocide.
In the second hour, we'll address the religious right's argument that marriage equality will lead to legalized plural marriages.
Philosopher Troy Bowles grew up in a fundamentalist Mormon polygamous cult and because of his experience and education, is in a unique position to show why the gay marriage/polygamy argument is nonsense. Joining us with a cult perspective is Rob Robinson.

The new right-wing extremism that FoxNews not only doesn't report but fuels with the lies, half-truths and partisan rhetoric...and that's news? The terror threat from the right is far more dangerous than the pantie-waists on the left will ever be able to muster. No, really, Bush REALLY is the reason that Iraq is blowing up...not really, Bush was too stupid it was the 3 stooges of evil; Cheney, Rumsfeld and Wolfson. Addicted to gambling...wanna bet. And finally, the idiot that overs-tayed her welcome, Michelle Bachmann speaks out against Elizabeth Warren...are you kidding.
in The Bible
This week Elijah and co-hosts Steve and Howard discuss the widespread signs that are connected to that character first exhibited by Lucificer and since spread to his "ministers of righteousness" 2Co 11:5. Those religious "leaders" who seek occasion for their own personal glory and exaltation. Men (and women) who want to raise their position to a place of praise and popularity, to be loved by men and served by them (worshipped). It's a clear mark of Satan and one that has been honed to a razor edge over the last 2,000 years. But now... is operating on such a large scale it boggles the mind.
Islamic extremists have intermediate political goals which they believe will pave the way for the global implementation of Sharia. One of these goals is the removal of non-Muslim military forces from Muslim lands and the overthrow of “enemy” regimes. Acts of Islamic extremism includes terrorism, human rights abuses, the advancement of Sharia based governance, bigotry towards non-Muslims, Jews, Homosexuals, Atheists, all other religions and rival Muslims and overall hostility to the West. Yet, The United States allows radical Turkish citizens to enter the country and pays their way through college, while American students can not pay for education and are not adequately funded.
After a well-educated Muslim, "Jihdadist John," committed a primitive act that showcased an appalling lack of mentality and intelligence, we here in the West will be forced to ponder the integration of Islam in our Western society. How will this latest abomination of religious extremism -- the so-called Islamic "Caliphate" end up? Will they ever be destroyed? And how? How strong are they, really? And who funds them? How much will they accomplish? How long will their rule last? What is their weakness? Their strength? And most important, how can we prevent these deluded jackasses from rejoining Western society?
The Bible tells us to " LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF." Imagine a world if people adhered to this. The news is filled with anger, hatred and extremism that shows itself in wars and massive executions of innocent people. It boggles the mind about the extent of Anti-Semitism and people denying African Americans their basic civil rights. In many parts of the world, there is also a denial of women's rights and gay rights, just to name a few ongoing issues.
Hear what Chap Oscar Smith has to say as we explore these HUGE problems.
What can you do to make the world a better place? I believe it starts with one person and one positive action at a time. What positive action can you take? What action will you take? If not now, when?
A special time this week, 2pm Eastern, in order to have a reasonable time for our guest on the other side of the world.
This week we are going to visit an AOR that may have dropped of a lot of people's scan, but in the Long War - it is still the front lines; the Horn of Africa.
Somalia, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, and the waters around the Arabian Peninsular - from terrorism to piracy - America and her allies and partners are at work every day to keep the beast over there, and not here.

In this position, he supports the CJTF-HOA Commander to counter violent extremism in East Africa, foster regional security cooperation, strengthen partner nation security capability, and build and maintain U.S. strategic access in the region. Krongard is also responsible for developing relations with senior military leaders in African partner nations and directing CJTF staff and subordinate commanders’ support to deployed personnel and units of all Services across the Horn of Africa. DCJTF-HOA.

Program Summary 12 July 2014
Filmmakers Tia Lessen and Carl Deal worked with Michael Moore on Fahrenheit 9/11 and Bowling for Columbine, and made a movie, Trouble the Water, on the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. They made plans to deal with money in politics and the Citizens United Supreme Court decision when in early 2011 a grassroots rebellion began in Wisconsin.
The newly elected governor Scott Walker, deeply funded by money from the Koch brothers, had proposed eliminating bargaining rights for public employees. Tia Lessen and Carl Deal captured - over several months - one of the most inspiring social movements of our time and the first large scale rebellion against money in politics. The images of teachers, nurses and fire fighters occupying the State House, one on one conversations with participants in the protests - many of them Republicans who reject the extremism of the Tea Party, and the coverage of the recall campaign that collected almost a million signatures - all that makes up the heart of the movie.
Sadly though Walker's high financed rise to power and the even better funded defeat of the recall movement stand at the beginning and end of the movie as warning that the power of money over politics must be broken. This movie is a contribution to that end.
Independent radio journalist and producer, Christina Aanestad spoke with Tia Lessen at the opening of her film in San Francisco at the Opera Plaza Cinemas. It was a packed house and they spoke in the lobby of the theater amongst late arrivals of movie goers and a popcorn stand.
July 8 Lisa Graves, The Progressive magazine publisher and editor in chief Center for Media and Democracy talks with Democracy Now Amy Goodman latest revelations about Charles Koch's background.
