    Property Rights and Wrongs with Judy G. Russell

    in History

     Property Rights and Wrongs: African-Americans at the Courthouse with The Legal Genealogist

    From being treated as property to having their property stolen by those who used the law against the freedmen, African Americans' experience at the courthouse had only one bright spot: it created records for the genealogist-descendants.

    A Certified Genealogist with a law degree, The Legal Genealogist Judy G. Russell examines the interplay between genealogy and the law. She is a lecturer, educator and writer who enjoys helping others understand a variety of issues, ranging from using DNA in family history to the effect the law had on our ancestors’ lives and the records they left behind.

    A graduate of George Washington University and Rutgers School of Law-Newark, Judy is a Colorado native with roots deep in the American south on her mother’s side and entirely in Germany on her father’s side. She's a member of the National Genealogical Society, the Association of Professional Genealogists, and, among others, the state genealogical societies of New Jersey, North Carolina, Virginia, Texas and Illinois. She has written for the National Genealogical Society Quarterly and the National Genealogical Society Magazine .

    Save The Kids Radio HipHop Power Hour Commemorating Black August!


    Black August originated in the California penal system to honor fallen Freedom Fighters, Jonathan Jackson, George Jackson, William Christmas, James McClain and Khatari Gaulden. Jonathan Jackson was gunned down outside the Marin County California courthouse on August 7, 1970 as he attempted to liberate three imprisoned Black Liberation Fighters: James McClain, William Christmas and Ruchell Magee. Ruchell Magee is the sole survivor of that armed liberation attempt. He is the former co-defendant of Angela Davis and has been locked down for 38 years, most of it in solitary confinement. George Jackson was assassinated by prison guards during a Black prison rebellion at San Quentin on August 21, 1971. Three prison guards were also killed during that rebellion and prison officials charged six Black and Latino prisoners with the death of those guards. These six brothers became known as the San Quentin Six.

    Along with this great topic, Kym Young will be co-hosting live from the NCWP Lammas Arts & Music Festival in Superior, WI!

    Deadpirate Roberts Silkroad and Bitcoin

    in Comedy

    Who is Ross Ulbricht? Is he Dread Pirate Roberts, the ringleader of a billion dollar Internet black market, as the prosecution claims. Or is he the quiet former Eagle Scout, who lived in a modest apartment with three roommates? That's what 12 men and women will have to decide in the federal case against Ulbricht, which started Jan. 13 in New York City. FORBES will be at the courthouse each step of the way, with updates posted on this page as they're published. Read up on all of FORBES' coverage of the case below.


    Bitcoin is a new currency that was created in 2009 by an unknown person using the alias Satoshi Nakamoto. Transactions are made with no middle men – meaning, no banks! There are no transaction fees and no need to give your real name. More merchants are beginning to accept them: You can buy webhosting services, pizza or even manicures.

    Bitcoins can be used to buy merchandise anonymously. In addition, international payments are easy and cheap because bitcoins are not tied to any country or subject to regulation. Small businesses may like them because there are no credit card fees. Some people just buy bitcoins as an investment, hoping that they’ll go up in value.

    Several marketplaces called “bitcoin exchanges” allow people to buy or sell bitcoins using different currencies. Mt. Gox is the largest bitcoin exchange.


    Joining us tonight will be https://twitter.com/01101O10 @01101O10 


    Let's learn about Bitcoin and SilkRoad!

    Investigated investigators do not get prosecuted.

    Tampering with the jury is a felony, and that is exactly what Stanislaus DAs investigator Steve Jacobson and District Attorney Dave Harris are accused of in the trial of Aleo Pontillo, owner of AJ bail bonds.

    DA’S Fladager and Harris are being charged with contempt not a felony.

    The accusation is verified from a declaration by Judge Scott Steffen, who presided over the trial.

    The accusation was moved from Judge Steffens court to Judge Silveira and now resides with Judge Linda McFadden, who is holding Jacobson to a contempt charge.

    Attorney Frank Carson, who filed the complaint said, “I have no doubt that if I or my investigator had done the same thing to jury members in the same situation, we would have been arrested immediately, restricted from the courthouse and prosecuted on felony charges by the District Attorney’s Office to the fullest extent of the law.”

    The McStay Family Murders: Update on Chase Merritt's Pre-Prelim Hearing May 15

    in Current Events

    Let's get caught up on the McStay case. What has happened since the arrest of Chase Merritt in November of 2014? Do you think he is guilty? Do you trust the San Bernardino Sheriff's Department? If so, why? Specificailly? 

    This Friday May 15, is Chase's pre-preliminary hearing. On Friday night's show, Joe Nelson, a reporter with the San Bernardino Sun will be my guest. I have known Joe for a while now and he has a reputation for being a seasoned, veteran reporter of nearly 20 years, who prides himself on not screwing sources and quoting people accurately. That's hard to find in today's media. Joe is covering the case and will be at the courthouse. He will update us on the events of the day.

    The McStay murders are a national tragedy and yet remain a mystery. Who did this and why? What kind of evil kills little boys? Was it Chase Merritt as the authorities have claimed, or someone else, as many believe?

    My shows are always listener-participation shows. I will take as many calls as I can, so plan on getting involved with this show, and every show coming up!

    Live Coverage of Protest/Petition Kick Off In Tulsa Oklahoma

    in Politics

    323-870 4626
    Description of event:
    "We are hosting this rally for citizens to sign the petition to remove Sheriff Glanz through a Grand Jury process. We will be at the courthouse plaza for 12 hours (8am to 8pm).   Starting at 7pm we will start our Rally/March down to the Sheriff's office. Come join us, we will have speakers, performers, and think-tank sessions throughout the day. "

    We will have live coverage of the event from those participating .  Please join us in the discussion of "What can we do to effect change in the world of injustice ? "  We have a answer. I believe what is happening in Tulsa at this moment in time - can be duplicated in other cities. This is a workable model. Have a problem with your police/sheriff department in your city ? Take note at what is happening peacefully in Tulsa with expediated results. I am fond of a quote by Lincoln - "Truth is the best defense"   Find that truth in evidence and expose it to the light of a grand jury. It works.


    If you are not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people that are being oppressed and loving the people who are doing the oppressing. "  Malcom X
