The GOP pantheon of dipshits, douchebags, rascals and ineligibles is only made interesting by a billionaire celebrity and the Jr. Sen. from KY; yet in the current scheme neither of them is permitted a chance. Vote, donate, door-knock and vote again…when the votes are counted by the partisan hacks of the Consultant, Lobbyist, and Establishment Complex (CLEC) the result will be a “fundamental transformation” of an acceleration of the Neocon World Order, same as last time you got enamored with hope and change and taking your country back from the controlled opposition.
In 2012 at Tampa, the CLEC perpetuated the draconian rules that centralize their power which were illicitly enacted, foisted by Romney operative, Ginsberg and his cohort Sununu and announced by Agent Orange Boehner who read the “adoption vote” off a pre-scripted teleprompter ignoring the loud objections of the delegates.
The Old Republic has been systematically erased by a shadowy global tyranny with a veneer of democracy, elections and the distraction of bread and circuses. It shall persist until liberty-loving people restore Constitutional governance. Beginning in your community and working up and out to the Imperial District of Corruption. Revitalize The Constitutional Militia of the States, sound money, Christian culture and a sensible foreign policy of trade and non-interventionist defense; or keep supporting the fascists in both parties as they push transnational agendas to perpetuate an empire abroad and a police state at home. To defeat the lawless hordes of cultural marxists, fascists, oligarchs, kleptocrats, useful idiots and their fellow travelers you MUST CRUSH the Neocon fascist-socialists on the ‘left’, ‘right’ and everywhere. . .for liberty!

Summer is a great time of year but it certainly comes with its drawbacks and annoyances. Kids running amok, TV reruns, political buffoonery, rickety rides at county and state fairs, and the heat induced human stench and anger walking freely about, so...
Join Jay, Matt, and the IWS Radio gang as they discuss this hot, humid, dead pool of mosquitos, sunburns, and chained wallet wearing rednecks chowing down on fried cheese on a stick, known as the dog days of summer.
Along with the comedic analysis of this soul wrenching time of year by Jay and Matt, there will be plenty of awful summertime music, mocking of the 2016 Presidential candidates, and perhaps fun times with the likes of Jamie Mapleleaf, Whisperin' Sam, Back-Handed Compliment Man, Robert the Taylor, Rev. Moneymaker, and Mr. Vague.
All of that plus your phone calls at 661.244.9852, as IWS Radio presents...Summer 2015: Fried Anger On A Stick

Join us as we share Christina Torry's story of the child she thought she aborted.
As the nation marks January as Sanctity of Life Month and thousands gather to march for the unborn, Tina Torry, whose baby survived an abortion, shares her story of how "divine intervention" saved her daughter's life.
It was 1978 when Tina Torry, 17 at the time, became pregnant. Her boyfriend, family, and health care professionals were adamant that she have an abortion – as it was legal at the time, she told The Christian Post.
"I had no moral support to keep the child," she said. "From day one, I was pointed to an abortion clinic. They never said consider adoption."
According to Torry, sitting in the Charleston, S.C., abortion clinic was "unreal." She recalled looking at the women in the waiting room, and one in particular appeared to be at least six months pregnant. It was then that the enormity of the situation dawned on her.
Ninety-five percent of domestic infant adoptions in the US have some degree of openness, so almost all adoptive parents need to think about creating a lasting healthy relationship with their child's birth mother and birth father.
Host Dawn Davenport, Executive Director of Creating a Family, the national infertility & adoption education and support nonprofit, interviews Brenda Romanchik, a therapist in private practice in Atlanta, Georgia, specializing in trauma and adoption issues, her clients include children, adolescents and adults. She is also an adjunct professor for Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan, teaching Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in the School of Social Work.

Edie Weinstein welcomes Kimberly Smythe whose book entitled Letting Go Again: A Birth Mother’s Tale of Adoption, Re-Union, Separation and Growth highlights the idea that re-uniting with the daughter she gave up for adoption has its joyful and pain-filled moments.
When Kimberly Smythe was a teenager, she became pregnant and hid the fact from her family until it became evident and from the birth father until well afterward. The shame she felt carried over into all areas of her life. A re-union with her daughter did not go as planned and her artfully told story sheds a light on the emotional roller coaster ride that ensued.
After living the nomadic life of an Air Force brat, Kimberly Smythe spent twenty-six years in Hawaii, which still holds a special place in her heart. She has four grown children, three of whom call her mom. Today, Kimberly lives in the great Northwest where she shares a home with her wonderful husband and their two dogs. www.lettinggoagain.com
