Hey everyone! There's just so much going on in the world I felt it was my obligation to discuss the Sandra Bland case. Do you believe she committed suicide or was she murdered? How fair is our "justice" system. I want to hear your opinion today!!
Sam Thurman, Cliff Stewart, Lisa Stewart and Lamont Banks, of the Colorado exoneration firm A Just Cause, discuss what happens when the wheels of justice trample unbridled over the rights of innocent Americans.
Although the American system of justice is the most-respected worldwide, it is still a system designed, and operated, by humans, which means it's not perfect.
A Just Cause is currently campaigning for "FreeTheIRP6," who's been wrongly imprisoned in Florence, CO for a crime they didn't commit. Read full story: www.freetheirp6.org.

In this episode I will inform you all about a subject that has a whole lot of intrest to me that is feminism, which has gladly made its apperance over the last two centuries from when women got the right to vote to when we went to work during World War 2. Then after we stopped being housewives to being workers but we have had to fight because even though it's 2015 we still do not get equal pay, men still get paid more. We are strong and just as strong as men and we are here to prove our point to men. We Are Women!
This week Travel Today with Peter Greenberg comes from Cunard’s flagship, the R.M.S. Queen Mary 2, or QM2. This is a Transatlantic ocean liner, and the only liner in service between South Hampton and New York. Equal in height to a 23-story building and nearly four football fields in length, QM2 is unmatched in her class and is the last such liner to be built since 1969. But don’t let her size fool you. A Transatlantic crossing is a luxurious experience for reasons that go beyond the obvious.
Richard Meadows, President of Cunard North America, stops by to expound on why an on-board experience is unforgettable and Commodore Ronald Warwick talks about his 36 years with Cunard and his favorite ports. There’s all of this and more on this week’s episode of Travel Today with Peter Greenberg.
Evil is in the world and while we are here at various times we will go through satanic charged storm that are a cunning attempt to trick us. The reality no evil can harm us, for the bible tells us so. However the father of lies uses every trick in the book to make us think we are going to get crushed. Satan is NOT equal to God, NOT even close. A fallen lying spirit that dragged only a third of the weak willed angels with him. So now knowing he is dominated he tries to cause trouble on the earth like a loser would and many will die that are outside the faith. The awesome power of God in Christ is limitless toward us who believe. Faith is key and affirming the word of God. Join me for a half an hour to be encouraged no matter what you might be going through.
Last week, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission dropped an astounding ruling: By a 3-2 vote, it concluded that “sexual orientation is inherently a ‘sex-based consideration,’ and an allegation of discrimination based on sexual orientation is necessarily an allegation of sex discrimination under Title VII.”
This is a big deal: The Commission’s recommendations shape rulings on federal employees’ workplace-discrimination claims, and its field offices deal with claims made by employees at private organizations, as well. But the ruling is also a reminder of how complicated—and unresolved—the post-Obergefell legal landscape is. The Supreme Court’s ruling in favor of same-sex marriage at the end of June has set the country up for two new waves of discrimination claims: those made by same-sex couples and LGBT workers, and those made by religious Americans who oppose same-sex marriage. The two may seem distinct or even opposed, but they’re actually intertwined: In certain cases, extending new rights to LBGT workers will necessarily lead to religious-freedom objections, and vice versa.
My understanding of Malcolm's "THE BALLOT OR THE BULLET" is steeped in the knowledge of the Slave law or Code de Noir. In chapter 7, "FREE SOCIAL WORSHIP AND RELIGIOUS WORSHIP AND RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION PROHIBITED"..The Government not only permits the Master to forbid the free social worship and religious instruction of his slaves, at his pleasure, but it also steps in with direct prohibitions of its own, which even the Master himself may not relax or abrogate..........He is restrained, as we have seen, from bestowing upon his slave, an education that would increase his usefulness, or of employing him to do any kind of writing! The slave may be used so, as to be used up in SEVEN YEARS; may be used as ad breeder, as. Prostitute, as an attendant at the gaming tables, as a subject of MEDICAL AND SURGICAL EXPERIMENTS FOR THE BENEFIT OF SCIENCE, an d the Legislature makes no objections against it. "William Goodell
"By ballot I only mean freedom. Don't you know -- I disagree with Lomax on this issue -- that the ballot is more important than the dollar? Can I prove it? Yes. Look in the UN. There are poor nations in the UN; yet those poor nations can get together with their voting power and keep the rich nations from making a move. They have one nation -- one vote, everyone has an equal vote. And when those brothers from Asia, and Africa and the darker parts of this earth get together, their voting power is sufficient to hold Sam in check. Or Russia in check. Or some other section of the earth in check. So, the ballot is most important.

“The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just around the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now you begin to understand me.”
