    GRACELAND: Jennifer Meadows & The Blaze's Pete Kasperowicz on the ATF bullet ban

    in Politics Conservative

    This week’s Graceland with Jennifer Meadows is packed with topics for discussion.  The Blaze’s Pete Kasperowicz joins us to discuss the ATF’s effort to circumvent the 2nd Amendment with its aborted attempt to ban certain types of ammunition.  Is the ATF done with its scheme?  Kasperowicz breaks it all down for us.


    The Israeli elections just wrapped up.  We’ll discuss what lies ahead for Netanyahu and Israel following the just concluded elections.  And did the Obama administration not only choose sides, but try to influence the election?  And is Netanyahu our time’s Winston Churchill?


    Seattle’s new $15 minimum wage is already having an impact – in a negative way.  Restaurants are closing.  This is hardly a surprise to people who live in the real world.


    And good news for Starbucks customers – you can now get a lecture with your latte.  Who doesn’t want that?  Besides everyone, we mean! Can’t we just get some coffee?  We’ll discuss Starbucks’ latest social justice campaign. 


    Of course, we need to review the latest on Hillary’s emails.  Is her campaign slowly sinking before it even really starts?  And does Al Gore still have presidential aspirations?


    Join Jennifer Meadows, Curtice Mang and Charles Johnson this week as we tackle all of these topics.

    GRACELAND: JD Gordon, former DOD spokesperson, discusses the Islamic State

    in Politics

    This week former Defense Department spokesperson and current Fox News contributor J. D. Gordon joins Graceland to discuss the Islamic State and the global war on terror.  Are we beating ISIS?  Are we losing?  Can we even tell at this point?


    Gordon explains how this is an ideological war and what the West must do to counteract that.


    We also discuss Guantanamo Bay.  Should the United States close down Gitmo and turn it over to the Castros?  Could it become a base for terrorists that are cozy with Cuba?  Gordon offers some interesting scenarios on this.


    Jennifer Meadows and Curtice Mang are also joined by radio and TV personality from Memphis, TN, Charles Johnson.  “The Great Black Hope” as he’s affectionately known will offer his observations on Hillary Clinton and her email problems.  She used only her personal email account not a State Department email account for “convenience.”  Yes, it makes us laugh too!


    Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton and 46 other Senators send a letter to Iran telling them that whatever Obama agrees to without the consent of Congress can be undone by the next President.  Not an unreasonable possibility.  The Obama administration and other Democrats aren’t happy about it.  We will have some comments on this as well.


    Tune into Graceland with Jennifer Meadows for lively discussion on important topics.

    Graceland: Bradlee Dean on enemies of the state on CommDigiNews Hour

    in Politics

    On Graceland with Jennifer Meadows and Curtice Mang welcomes Bradlee Deans, an ordained preacher, heavy metal drummer, and frequent college and high school speaker.


    The Obama administration continues to transgress the law and the rights of the American people. He continues to try to rule by arbitrary decree – see executive amnesty, for example. It picks and chooses which laws to obey and which to ignore.


    Obama freely admonishes Christians for centuries old transgressions, while he remains incapable of calling Islamic terrorism for what it is. It’s not that big of a deal, it’s that the media overstates the terror threat.


    Is the Obama administration an enemy of the Republic? We’ll discuss this and more with Bradlee Dean.


    Also on tap, if only ISIS fighters had jobs, it would be no trouble at all. At least that’s what the State Department thinks. And a federal judge temporarily halts Obama’s executive amnesty.


    Graceland airs live on Thursday’s at 6:30pm Eastern here on CommDigiNews.  The following chat is from that live show, starting with Critical Conversations with Lisa Ruth

    GRACELAND: T.J. O'Hara guests to talk about ISIS, IRS and Keystone

    in Politics Conservative

    Author, speaker, consultant and Communities Digital News contributor, T.J. O’Hara, stops in to talk with Jennifer Meadows and co-host Curtice Mang this week on Graceland. The converstion begins with politics and ISIS and the "whatever ideology" of President Obama. 


    T.J. O’Hara will join us to talk about the trial of getting the IRS to not kill you off or let you rest in peace. When one dies, the IRS sometimes doesn’t take no – or a death certificate – for an answer.  Well, in a slightly different twist, being alive may not convince the IRS that you are in fact still alive.  Stop confusing it with the facts. 


    And if you thought wading through healthcare.gov was taxing, wait until you have to have to figure it out on your tax returns.  There is the 1095A form to complete, which also requires the 8962 form.  And if you can’t figure it all out, the IRS is there to help.  Seriously, that’s what they say!  We’ll try to sort it out.


    What does the United States Post Office have to do with the Keystone Pipeline?  T.J. will fill us in on efforts to attach an amendment the Keystone bill in the Senate that would prohibit the Post Office from moving ahead with its planned closing of facilities.  Would this help or hurt chances of a presidential veto?


    And then we have some fun with millennials.  A recent survey sheds a bit of light on some of their political knowledge and leanings.  For example, they like Hillary for President in 2016 and really like whoever their current home state US senators are, if they actually knew who any of them were.

Byb Chanel Bibene joins us to speak about "Taboo and Heroes," a multi-media work that addresses the reality and consequences of violence and corruption through the specific experience of the war that overtook the Republic of Congo in the late 1990's. In this piece Bibene narrates his personal experiences, as a survival, in which hope was the only strength for survival. Bringing together dance and theater performers, an original music score, set design and video elements, the piece aims to transport the audience into the charged atmosphere of conflict that permeated, and still echoes in everyday life in the Republic of Congo. Taboos is Sept. 27, 8 p.m. at Zaccho Theatre, 1777 Yosemite Ave., San Francisco.

    Graceland w/Jennifer Meadows

    in Politics Conservative

    Well, I know everyone was concerned about whether Hillary Clinton was too old to run for President in 2016.  Good news for everyone, she's been projected to live to age 86 allowing for many more years to possibly accomplish something while in office.  We'll talk about why we keep talking about such an unaccomplished person as a possible Presidential candidate.


    Also, the Supreme Court's 6-2 decision on affirmative action for college and university admissions means states may use affirmative action, but are not required to.  How much success have we seen with affirmative action?  Are minorities, women, and / or religious groups any better off?


    BLM continues to wage war on the Western part of the US as the focus begins to shift to Texas.  90,000 acres along the Oklahoma / Texas border are in question as the intent to seize private property for federal use are made known.  The Texas Attorney General has a message for the Federal Bureau of Land Management, "I am about ready,” General Abbott told Breitbart Texas, “to go to the Red River and raise a ‘Come and Take It’ flag to tell the feds to stay out of Texas."  It's becoming incresingly clear that states and the federal government are headed for a showdown of major proportions.


    Lisa Richards, writer and radio personality, will join us this evening.  Lisa has written articles for a number of Conservative news outlets and maintains her personal blog: http://lisarichardsrocknrollpolitics.wordpress.com/


    Graceland, every Thursday from 9:00 - 10:00pm Central/ 10:00 - 11:00pm Eastern.
