The Republican controlled House of Representatives have refused to take up the Continuing Resolution passed by the Senate that would fund the government until November 15th, in fear that it would pass without defunding the Presidents signature law, the Affordable Care Act. Speaker John Boehner has been quoted as saying that he doesn't have the votes to pass a "Clean CR" and yet, 22 GOP Members have public ally expressed support for the "Clean CR."
Tune in tonight as we review the Tea Party game plan to overturn the will of the American people and the voice of the United States Supreme Court. In the same manner that GOP strategists held a secret meeting after the 2008 election to make the President a "One-Term" President, a similar meeting was held to defund the Presidents signature piece of legislation known as ObamaCare and to use this tactic to hold up the federal budget and resist extending the debt ceiling preventing the government from paying its bills.
So, join us in this provocative discussion for truth and understanding as we join together to make a difference in the African American communities.
Jemeker Thompson-Hairston, an Olympian, Author, Evangelist, and former Los Angeles, Queen Pin, talks about her journey from the streets of L.A. and the dangerous life of drugs, crime and murder; to now saving souls with her testimony, faith, and Second Chance Ministry.
Jemeker now 51 started in the game at 16yrs old, and progressed to becoming the largest drug dealer in L.A. and the first woman dealer supplying drugs to over 5 different states. Jemeker would eventually discover that life on the run is much harder than paying the price for the crime. Running from the DEA and the FBI proved to be a much greater battle than shooting it out with the thugs on the next corner in the neighborhood war for control. Her drug wars on the streets of South Central L.A. paled in comparison, than with the long arm of the law, that never gave up.
Her memoir "Queen Pin" is a chronology of her life as the number one drug dealer in Los Angeles history and how God saved her and turned her life around so that she is no longer taking lives, but saving them through her testimony, her lifestyle, and her Second Chance Ministry. Don't miss this opportunity to hear her story and witness how God can turn any situation around.
