SORT BY Relevancy
NYC Comptroller Scott Stringer has released his office's audit of the Build It Back program. On this week's Riding The Wave with Mark Healey, he'll discuss the audit and other issues Rockaway cares about the most. Thanks again to Rockaway Roasters for the hospitality and great coffee.
Article I Section 10 of the United States Constitution states that; "No State shall make anything but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debt." The green Federal Reserve Note that we now carry were first issued in 1914 right after the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 was passed."
On June 05, 1933, Congress passed House Joint Resolution (HJR 192) HJR 192 was passed to suspend the gold standard and abrogate the gold clause in the national constitution. Since then no one in America has been able to lawfully pay a debt.
In 1971 President Richard Nixon took us completely off of the gold standard, but with the passage of HJR 192, congress stated that all debt is to be discharged.
Our guest this evening, "Mr. Phillip Gillon," says that accessing the office of the State Comptroller is a possible remedy for our overwhelming debt.

This week on Eyes Wide Open our guest is fellow Texan and dedicated public servant, Mike Collier. In 2014 Mike threw his hat into the ring to run for Texas Comptroller. Soon after the campaign came to a close he embarked on his latest venture, the 2015 Texas "listen tour" which spanned the first half of this year. Mike will share the details on his experiences with Texas politics and his thoughts on the issues and candidates for the Texas and National Election in 2016!

Listen to Dr. Shirley McKellar's announcement speech right here!
911 is a tangled web indeed. In addition to the miriad Joint Chiefs of Staff exercises on that day, security breaches, and other oddities, we have shocking connections. One of these is the pentagon comptroller who could not account 2.3 trillion dollars of pentagon money, your tax dollars, that had somehow gotten lost! How do you lose trillions of dollars? Add to this his very suspicious connections.
Your host, Bob Kirkconnell, author of American Heart of Darkness, will go into this spooky story. Hey, listen in and give us a call! We want to hear from you!

Ever since known as the “Miracle on Ice,” Sports Illustrated named that game “the greatest sports moment of the 20th Century.” Read the article: Remembering the "Miracle on Ice" By Dr. Mark Hendrickson.
Mount Vernon City Councilman Richard Thomas attends the show from the bottom of the first hour to distill the gravitas and relevance of New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli's assertions that inefficiencies and discrepancies revealing deficiencies by Mount Vernon Comptroller Maureen Walker, yet to remedied, continue unmitigated by any action and devoid of even a plan of correction.
At the top of the second hour, at 11:00am, Sisters Judy and Catherine two missionary sisters with the Dominican Sisters of Hope, and colleague Gina Ciliberti, speak to the evolution of the order, the recently inaugurated "new" www.ophope.org website, its 160 plus Catholic Dominican sisters who are committed to living and preaching the Gospel message of hope online, as well as among the seventeen states and Puerto Rico they serve largely in justice, social, healthcare, and education ministries.

On tonight's show:
With the open United States Senate seat drawing plenty of Democratic contenders, the primaries for vacated House seats opens up as well. We'll discuss the latest.
I will share some thoughts on my appearance on today's Marc Steiner Show where we discussed, among other things, the growing ideological divide in the American electorate? What is the cause and what can or should be done about it?
Governor Hogan and Senate President Miller have reached an agreement to put off the issue of getting rid of judcial elections until next year. Good idea? We'll discuss.
As I predicted, the "conservative ally" of Larry Hogan, Comptroller Peter Franchot, is opposing Governor Hogan on tax cuts.
And I invite out of control cyclists to "Get Off My Lawn".
Tonight's episode brought to you by the Maryland Federation of College Republicans (MDFCR) annual convention. For more information on this great event click http://mdfcr2015.eventbrite.com/
This morning the Today Show showed some beautiful scenes of our frozen Niagara Falls.
At Tuesday's Niagara Falls City Council meeting one of the agenda items revealed the members of the City Council Financial Advisory Board.
I personally feel that this is a step in the right direction but, again I, must repeat, that there is only one set of numbers. Those numbers come from our city controller's office. The mayor uses those numbers, the City Council uses those numbers and the State Comptroller uses those numbers.
What needs to change is the rate of increase in the cost of the day-to-day operation of the city.
The average rate of increase has practically doubled from previous administrations.
At Tuesday's meeting Councilmembers Choolokian and Anderson voted against the Bonding of the 3.1 million dollars at the ice rink complex so the measure failed.
The mayor had his State of the City Address Wednesday night at the Conference Center.
“In the last few years, we have managed to push aside our doubts and fears long enough to lay the foundation for a brand new beginning for Niagara Falls and the surrounding region,” Dyster said.
Well, some people would argue that the soil was toiled and the seeds were planted before Mayor Dyster got there. And most of that work was done by the previous administration while surrounded by a cabal of saboteurs and malcontents.
It's human nature that many times when we reap the harvest and have the big celebration we forget the hard work that had to be done to reach that glorious day. And let's not forget a ton of casino revenue.
Our guest this morning attended the state of the city address and maybe we will ask him for some of the highlights
So, before going further let me introduce our guest is NY State Assemblyman 145th Assembly District, John Ceretto
The coffee shop report
Well the issue of casino money and how we spend it is starting to capture the attention of not only the press but also social media.
For seven years now, I have been warning that we have to be vigilant in the use of casino revenues casino revenues are considered by the state comptroller to be nonrecurring revenues and should be treated as such.
In an article in the Niagara Gazette posted by Don Glynn he points out the concerns of Niagara Falls Ontario mayor Jim Diodati regarding the casino on Canadian side.
The article states that in the last four years revenues at the casino have dropped one hundred and one million. To counter that he is suggesting that the casino offer free beverages. In the past few weeks I've also heard that the revenues at the casino on our side have dropped.
Last Tuesday I said that in 5 to 10 years we would not have enough casino money to make up for funding of the day-to-day operation of the city
It is important to put the brakes on now. The city Council must legislate a spending policy that will ensure proper funding for the level of services that the taxpayers are asking for and expect.

LatinoTalk Texas is America's only daily Independent political analysis from the Latino perspective. Today's guest was Raul Torres . Mr. Raul Torres, CPA , has been an elected representative from Corpus Christi and although he was eminently qualified for Texas Comptroller the political machine in Texas forced him out for another more popular but unqualified candidate. His insight into Texas politics and Latino issues in Texas is extremely valuable and I'm very grateful he called the show to share his insight. Also, he appreciates the purpose and importance of Latino Talk Texas . I am very grateful for that also. On the show today I pointed out how, in the news, many of the predictions and analysis I have made during the past few months have been proved correct. For example, I predicted that Islamist terrorist group Boko Haram in Nigeria would not comply with any agreement and the news today confirms that. I predicted that the Tea parties would hate Jeb Bush for the same reasons that I like him. I also predicted, recently, that Obama will NOT ease deportations practices after the election especially if Democrats do badly. He won't "reward" Latinos for that. Raul Torres and I discuss Greg Abbott's laudable efforts to win Pro-Life Latino votes in the Rio Grande Valley but I lament that he is the ONLY one doing so. Torres confirms my observation that the Democrats take Latinos for granted and that the Republicans, otherwise, don't care for the Latino vote. Great show today!!
