What would happen if hundreds of people from 159 Counties in the State of Georgia swore-out private citizen warrants and initated criminal charges against Governor Nathan Deal and Attorney General Sam Olens? Well, this episode will discuss a "Warrant for Criminal Charges Against Georgia's Governor Nathan Deal," and the State Attorney General. We will discuss the adverse effects of Georgia's private citizen warrant under OCGA 17-4-40 where citizens initiate criminal charges against members of the public with no oversight by the Georgia legislatures, judges or members of law enforcement; notice is required, but judges have abandoned the notice provision and no police or investgative report is required to consider issuance of a warrant . We will discuss how simple it is for Georgia's Governor Nathan Deal and others to be the subject of an application for a warrant and arrest and we will discuss what Governor Nathan Deal can do by way of an executive order to issue an immediate Moratorium and Directive on the issuance of private citizen warrants. The moratorium will authorize reexamination of the law authorizing private citizen warrants as well as whether Georgia should repeal their laws and akin to states like Tennessee, whether Georgia should amend its laws to authorize summons as oppose to warrants, whether the onus on the party with the Burden of Proof to establish as a matter of law the existence of fact of all elements of his or her case should shift from "probable cause" to Clear and Convincing for issuing a warrant or to Beyond a Reasonable Doubt before a person can be subject to deprivation of their liberty (jailed).

The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview Daniel Blanchard.
Dan Blanchard the Award Winning Author, Speaker, Educator two-time Junior Olympian Wrestler, and two-time Junior Olympian Wrestling Coach grew up as a student-athlete. However, Dan admits that as a youth he was more of an athlete than a student. Dan has now successfully completed fourteen years of college and has earned seven degrees. He teaches Social Studies in Connecticut’s largest inner-city high school. In addition, Dan is a Teacher Consultant for the University of Connecticut’s Writing Project. He was chosen by the American Federation of Teachers as their face and voice of educational reform.

His third book of the Granddaddy’s Secrets series, Feeling Strong! will be out next year.

What's the matter with Kansas? "The Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy recently reported that Kansas has the ninth-most unfair tax system in the county. A Kansan earning $47,700 a year pays 9.5 percent of income in state and local taxes; but someone earning $1,191,700 pays an effective rate of just 3.6 percent."
So much for the 'trickle down' libertarian economic theories masterminded by the Wichita plutocrats Charles & David Koch; and implemented by Gov. Sam Brownback and his cronies in the state legislature.
Here is a very informative article by Larry Weigel recently featured at the Women for Kansas web site "Bleeding Kansas – Revenue shortfall will require grassroots leadership to deal with crisis". Mr. Weigel has appeared multiple times on Radio Free Kansas and in this article describes who, how and why Kansas has entered this dangerous phase of reactionary policies, self-imposed austerity and regressive taxation.
Naomi Fowler's latest world wide informative "Tax Cast" from the Tax Justice Network (30 min. ca.) SUMMARY: Do our politicians believe in the societies they serve or not? The Taxcast looks at making the tax returns of our elected representatives public and the inspirational achievement of journalist Umar Cheema of the Centre for Investigative Reporting in making Pakistan only the fourth country in the world to publish the tax returns of its Parliamentarians. Also: how the British general election demonstrates political capture by finance interests; libertarian paradise – the world's newest tax haven; and is Singapore trying to shut down reporting on its tax haven status?

Historians and archaeologist have confirmed that the first people in the Americas were black. Does this mean the indigenous Americans are black? Yes. Although this information has been kept from us, our true identity is starting to unfold. For years we’ve been told that we arrived to the Americas by slave ship, when in fact most of us were already here. Is it possible that the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade is a fictitious story used to trick indigenous black people out of their homelands and history?“…Omission, not distortion, is the far more serious culprit in hiding the story of the black Indians of America.” Williams Lorenz Katz, Black Indians.Many black people who trace their heritage will not find any African slavery in their family. It’s also not a coincidence that many of us blacks have been told by an elder in our family that, “We have Indian in our blood.” There were no ‘red Indians’ until the colonizers began mixing with the indigenous blacks. Below is a short list of black native tribes:The Washitaw of the Louisiana/Midwest
The Yamasee of the South East
The Cherokee Indians
The Blackfoot Indians
The Pequot and Mohegans of Connecticut
The Black Californians (Calafians) (CAL in CALifornia literally means BLAK, after the name of the Great Mamma KALi / Queen KALifa)
The Olmecs of Mexico
The Darienite of Panama
The Seminole Indians
The Creek Indians
The Chata/Choctaw IndiansMoundville Archeological Park, located near Birmingham, AL is an example of how there has been an attempt to suppress the original identity of the Native Americans. Since the early 1970s, the park’s museum had statues that depicted the Native Americans as black people. In 2010, those statues were replaced with white Native Americans.
