    I was intrigued how someone who had Lyme disease, vaccine toxicity and breast surgery could look so great! So I decided to interview her about her massive weight loss that she managed to keep off despite all of her health issues.

    Although we don't go into great detail on her Lyme protocol (because that is outlined in her free eBook), Erin Elizabeth of Health Nut News,  shared how through natural remedies and changing her diet (and possibly her breast surgery to remove saline implants) super charged her body's ability to recover.  It's a fascinating story!

    So join me Monday as I air this recorded interview with Erin Elizabeth of Health Nut News about her miraculous recovery.

    Tonight our Show will start our reading on our brother George Lester Jackson, son of Lester and Georgia Bea Jackson Elder brother of Jonathan Jackson who was killed in an attempt to free his brother George.   He was an African Captive in America who never considered himself an African American. A Prison activist who was the cofounder of the Black Guerrillas.George Lester Jackson (September 23, 1941 – August 21, 1971) was an African-American left-wing activist, Marxist, author, he became a member of the Black Panther Party while incarcerated. Jackson achieved fame as one of the Soledad Brothers and was later shot to death by guards in San Quentin Prison following an unsuccessful escape attempt which left Jackson and four others, including a judge, dead. Jackson was the second son of Lester and Georgia Bea Jackson's five children. He spent time in the California Youth Authority Corrections facility in Paso Robles because of several juvenile convictions including armed robbery, assault, and burglary. His life of petty crime was due to his rebellious attitude against the WHITE RACIST GOVERNMENT OF AMERICA. In 1961 he was convicted of armed robbery, for robbing $70 from a gas station at gunpoint and at age 18 was sentenced to serve one year to life in prison. We will examine the work of George Jackson through his letters written to family and friends over the years all compiled in a books called "THE SOLEDAD BROTHERS"   

    During his first years at San Quentin State Prison, Jackson became involved in revolutionary activity, as well as assaults on guards and fellow inmates. Such behavior, in turn, was used to justify his continued incarceration on an indeterminate sentence. He was described by prison officials as egocentric and anti-social.
    As Jackson's disciplinary infractions grew he spent more time in solitary confinement, where he studied political economy and radical theory. H

    This One Step - A Survivor's Healing

    in Christianity

    Polly grew up with six siblings in Mobile, Alabama, but was only 8 years old when her father died of lung cancer. Soon two neighborhood boys began to molest her, friends of her older twin brothers. A couple of years later she was assaulted by another neighbor and later by her older brother. She was able to break away from the abuse at the age of twelve, but was by then deep in the darkness of isolation. Polly is now a mother and grandmother, and has lived in Atlanta for the past 15 years and has become a devoted advocate for adult survivors of Child Sexual Abuse. 

    She began her organization, This One Step, to help older survivors of Child Sexual Abuse deal with the trauma of being part of what she has named, "The Unknown Generation"  A generation of survivors who had nowhere to go for support.  In her late teens she began writing as a coping mechanism to deal with the PTSD.  Her three books, "Cider Blocks and Oven Racks", "Billy Wayne's Christmas Train" and "The Unknown Generation" will be available in early 2016.  She has written many southern short stories which have been published in different publications.  She is now hosting her own blogtalk radio show Monday through Friday beginning at 6:00am.

    Pope Francis in Kenya,Uganda and Central African Republic

    in Politics

    This morning the Holy Father transferred to the Church of St. Joseph the Worker, situated in one of the poorest quarters of the city of Kangemi. “I feel very much at home sharing these moments with brothers and sisters who, and I am not ashamed to say this, have a special place in my life and my decisions”, said the Pope to the inhabitants of the area. “I am here because I want you to know that your joys and hopes, your troubles and your sorrows, are not indifferent to me. I realise the difficulties which you experience daily! How can I not denounce the injustices which you suffer?”He began by speaking about the wisdom found in poor neighbourhoods, “'A wisdom which is born of the stubborn resistance of that which is authentic', from Gospel values which an opulent society, anaesthetised by unbridled consumption, would seem to have forgotten. You are able 'to weave bonds of belonging and togetherness which convert overcrowding into an experience of community in which the walls of the ego are torn down and the barriers of selfishness overcome'”.Vatican Information Service via African Press Organization

    Pope Francis has launched a blistering attack on “new forms of colonialism” that exacerbate the “dreadful injustice of urban exclusion” while speaking to thousands of people in one of Nairobi’s most impoverished slums.The pontiff criticised wealthy minorities who hoard resources at the expense of the poor and praised the values of solidarity and mutual support in deprived neighbourhoods. Such values, he said, had been forgotten by “an opulent society, anaesthetised by unbridled consumption” and were “not quoted in the stock exchange, are not subject to speculation and have no market price”.Guardian
