    "Disinformation: The Reason We Are Divided" on "I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee"

    in Politics

    More recent polarizing issues are being reported and commented on in all forms of media. Recent legislation in Indiana and Arkansas, Jade Helm 15 and of course Money in Politics. While reading and monitoring how these issues are being reported, once again, partisan media and organizations continue to spin irresponsible narratives, with some that are literally blatantly false. Yet people will follow this disinformation down the rabbit hole and then adopt them as fact and essentially removing any chance for even a reasonable discussion on what is really going on so we as a society can actually fix it. This week I have asked a Media Panel to discuss specific issues that are not being reported honestly and how this type of irresponsible reporting continues to keep us divided as a society. We will have the latest in breaking important news subject and our weekly Education Update. So grab a cup of coffee and please join us for this important discussion with Ford Fischer from News2Share, Justin King Editor-in-Chief of THE FiFth Column and Isa Hodge Radio Show Host of Muslim & Catholic in Merica. The Education Update with Badass Teacher Marla Kilfoyle. Longtime Activist, Coffee Party Newsroom Editor & Radio Host, Bobby Rodrigo's new show on "I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee" on Coffee Party USA Radio every Sunday Morning at 8:30AM. Advocating engagement Bobby points out the Constitution is the Rule of Law and why it should remain so. Money in Politics, the Political Party Machine, and partisan blind allegiance is on full display as he advocates against the erosion of Constitutional Protections in the name of corruption & tyranny. "If we focused on following the Constitution we would solve many of the ills of our society.” Offering guests from Political Organizations, Activism, Media & Artists Bobby invites you to join him Sunday Morning at 8:30AM on Coffee Party USA Radio.

    Coffee Party Book Club "Reclaiming Civility in the Public Square"

    in Politics

    "Reclaiming Civility in the Public Square – 10 Rules That Work" is a user-friendly guide to how civility in the governing process is possible.  Each rule is illustrated with a true life story.  These stories not only demonstrate how the rule works, but also give evidence that while “civility in government” may sound like an oxymoron to some, there are examples to be found showing civility to be alive and well in the political sphere.


    Cassandra and Tomas are co-founders of the Institute for Civility in Government, a grassroots non-profit organization that works to bring more civility to the governing process in our communities and our nation.  With more than 15 years of experience in leading legislative conferences, Cassandra and Tomas know first-hand what it takes for citizens to be effectively engaged in the political process on Capitol Hill and beyond. They have addressed community groups, schools, churches and members of Congress, and have been interviewed on radio and television, including PBS, C-SPAN, NPR and CBC.  Both are ordained pastors in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and are actively serving a congregation. Both Cassandra and Tomas have mediation training

    "The Destruction of Public Education" on "I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee"

    in Politics

    Our Public Education is being destroyed.  It's as simple as that. Common Core, Race to the Top, Charter School Disinformation and Money, Money, Money.  In New York, a battle rages that dates back to misappropriation of Public School Funds, Cuomo trying to cut Public Education and give money to charter schools and, of course, Common Core.  Created by businessmen and shoved down the throats of parents and teachers with a focus on testing, Common Core is the cherry on top of the continued push to turn Public Education into a business. Joining me today is Teacher/Activist Marla Kilfoyle. Marla, a manager of Badass Teacher Association has been a parent advocate on Long Island in such groups as Parents and Teachers Against Common Core and LI Opt-Out. Marla has been a teacher in the Social Studies Department at Oceanside High School (NY) for 27 years. Also joining us Kenneth Hughes, public school teacher for 28 years who is watching the school where he teaches suffer from the budget shortfalls manipulated over the past decade and is looking more budget cuts direct in the face.  These issues in New York and throughout the country are as important as any in our society.

    "28 Years As A Police Officer" a conversation on "I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee"

    in Politics

    The discussion about Police in our society has changed.  The Militarization of our local police departments, daily reports of police brutality, lack of transparency and police policy that undermines Constitutional Protections,  With so much negative happening and being reported the larger "positives" are forgotten.  Like our society the majority of people who join the Police do so for the right reasons. Serve and protect. A life of sacrifice and peril. A life of good works. With this in mind I introduce you to Stefan Komar of the NYPD. A person who understands history, activism and the good fight.  The son of a hero member of the Polish Underground during World War II. A man who loves his work and his community and the law. Mr. Komar will not be speaking on behalf of the NYPD in any way, but for himself. Please join us for a frank discussion about his choices,observations. good works and beliefs during his 28 year career. Have a cup of coffee with a real Police Officer.  Long time Activist, Coffee Party Newsroom Editor & Radio Host, Bobby Rodrigo's new show on "I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee" on Coffee Party USA Radio every Sunday Morning at 8:30AM.
