    Laudato Si

    in Education

    In this episode, Sacerdotus speaks on Pope Francis' new encyclical entitled, "Laudato Si."  This new document has raised much controversy among those who call themselves "conservative."  In the document, the Pope sides with environmentalists and calls the world to care for the environment, restrict captialism that brings about greed and the destruction of nature, and criticizes social changes based on relatavisim.  Sacerdotus offers his thoughts on the new encyclical and takes on the critics of it, including Catholic reactionaries.

    A True Story Of Government Intrusion On Private Property And Our Rights

    in Politics

    On this show, we will be talking about the intrusion onto private property by a seemingly tyrannical and hypocritical government. Joining me in studio will be Ron and Ruth Kerns whom for the last 6 months have been battling their local government, and various departments, seeking a resolution to an extremely destructive act by their county involving their beloved property. Unfortunately they have had to take the unpleasant steps of a very expensive law suit to seek some kind of resolution to this matter. This destruction involved the removal of very old trees, grounds ripped up by heavy equipment and the destruction of a federally protected wetlands that was on their property. All of this happened without having any permission, permits or proper paperwork by the offending parties. Until very recently they have been met with nothing but resistance, silence and obstruction by the EPA, County Engineers, Army Corp of Engineers, Courts etc. It wasn't until the Department of Fish and Wildlife got involved that communication finally was established, and possible steps forward might be in the future. With all that said, it still took a six month battle, a ball park sum of $40,000.00 and an incredible amount of stress just to get this far, still without being able to have their day in court. Tyrannical government or just business as usual here in America? You be the judge.

    Ron and Ruth are rabid environmentalists in their own right. They support all things nature, and live what they preach. This is a couple that looks forward to one thing during their stressful work week; to simply spend time working on, and enjoying their beautiful wooded property. They have spent thousands of hours on exotic gardens, preserves for the wildlife that reside on the property and they also keep bees. At the end of the day, they can sit on their deck with immense satisfaction of their contribution to their little corner of nature, or at least used too...

    Man Caused Disaster -- California's Blistering Drought

    in Politics Conservative

    It has Californians timing their showers, driving dirty cars and staring at brown lawns and empty swimming pools is a man caused disaster, according to critics, who say the Golden State’s misguided environmental policies allow much needed freshwater to flow straight into the Pacific.  The critics say California gets  plenty of water to meet its needs, if it were only managed properly.


    But the vast majority of the state’s 1,400 dams and reservoirs, in the two massive systems and smaller ones that supply southern California, were built well before the 1980s. Environmentalists have since stopped the construction of water storage and delivery systems through legal and political actions. They have also fought to ensure that captured water is released into streams and the ocean -- rather than the water delivery system -- in order to boost fish populations and dilute the salinity of the delta.


    Mark Baird is president of a Water Rights Group in Northern California called Scott Valley Protect Our Water. He is also the leading grassroots advocate and spokesman for The State of Jefferson.

    The Goddess Rising Network : The International Genocide Against Black People

    in Current Events

    What were the factors that led to this potential unraveling for the growth coalitions?



    Urban renewal increased tensions rather than resolving them, leaving cities in a greater state of fear and uncertainty.
    Demands by African-Americans to integrate neighborhoods and schools put the growth coalitions in a bind because they feared increased white flight if the demands were met. Most growth coalitions tried to walk a tightrope, some more successfully than others.
    Many local banks and corporations were bought up by even larger corporations from outside the city, or moved their headquarters to even larger cities, leaving the growth coalitions holding the bag. Some growth coalitions then fragmented.
    Up-scale neighborhoods, environmentalists, left-wing activists fresh from Civil Rights and anti-war struggles, and well-educated high-tech workers passed slow-growth legislation or blocked specific projects in some cities.
    Low-income people in small towns and urban neighborhoods, often led by women and minorities, became part of an environmental justice movement that resisted the creation of chemical dumps and waste treatments plants in their areas (Szasz, 1994).
    Unions based in service workers and government employees later joined the slow-growth, pro-neighborhood coalitions in some major cities.Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in America. 78% of their clinics are in minority communities. Blacks make up 12% of the population, but 35% of the abortions in America. Are we being targeted? Isn't that genocide? We are the only minority in America that is on the decline in population. If the current trend continues, by 2038 the black vote will be insignificant.

    Hard Starboard Radio: The Obama Constitution

    in Politics Conservative

    A year after it left Ukraine for Russia, Crimea is suffering (I promise); The lie that farmers use 80% of California's water is manufactured by environmentalists to distract from the incredible damage their policies have caused; When does the Senate have a say on treaties? When it agrees with Obama; Why Senator Mike Lee's colleagues’ cluelessness about our founding document is at the heart of Washington’s dysfunction; The "Reformican" agenda has a strong ‘abandoning free market principles to save the free market system’ vibe to it; and no, Hillary Rodham Clinton is not "inevitable".

    QARLive: Brian Williams: Hypocrisy Of The Liberal Media

    in Politics Conservative

    Join hosts, Jason Taylor/Randy Hahn @StQuagmire & Watson Prunier @StPrunier Monday night at 10:00pm EST here on qarlive.com


    Williams Made Himself A Perfect Target. There’s no more attractive story than one suggesting that an important or powerful figure is a hypocrite. It’s the war hawk urging the dispatch of young men and women into harm’s way, but whose draft deferments or sketchy medical condition exempted him from the draft. It’s the liberal voting to bus children to school while sending her kids to private academies. It’s the tribune of moral virtue paying for abortions for the staff assistant he knocked up. It’s the environmentalists flying to a climate change rally in a private jet.


    According to the people with knowledge of the situation, the instinct at the top of NBC and Comcast, its corporate parent, has been to try to preserve the asset: Williams is No. 1 at 6:30 p.m. by a wide margin, and “Nightly” is NBC’s only consistently dominant newscast newscast. The sense inside NBC News has been that Williams is too big to fail: He’s just too valuable, and there’s no obvious replacement.


    Watson Prunier will be hosting BATTLE4FREEDOM every Tuesday night, 9:00pm EST. Watson is a Strong Christian Conservative, with powerful words and a calming voice. And check out his incredible website Battle4Freedom.com.
