    USWGO Talk Radio: Liberty Discussion and the FEC

    in Politics

    I talk about Liberty and about the FEC

    Here are links to prove what I am saying on here:

    FEC went after Liberty Lobby newspaper scans:


    1989 massacre of the Chinese protesters at Tiananmen Square right at the same time Clinton mentioned that back in 1989 George Bush Senior stated and it's a phrase that Clinton uses himself that they need a new world order:

    P1FD: Are we living up to Dr. Kings Dream w/Greg Russak - 9 PM EST/6 PM PST

    in Politics

    Press [1] for Democracy (P1FD) is a Coffee Party Radio show that discusses the political issues of the day in a civil, fact-based, and transpartisan manner.  Transpartisan is quite different from bi- or non-partisan in the fact that we encourage callers to be passionate about their position, but to listen to those with differing opinions with repsect and a true desire to find common ground on which solutions can be built.  

    Tonight on P1FD . . . 

    Martin Luther King’s 85th birthday is celebrated today (although January 15, 1929, was the actual date of his birth).

    How far have we come since 1968? How much further do we have to go, toward what end, and what are we actually doing to get there?

    Join me, Greg Russak, as I fill in for Dan Aronson tonight at 9pmET on Press [1] for Democracy and let’s try to answer these and other questions together.

    Here are some parallels I’ve been thinking about. 46 years after Dr. King’s murder, how is it that we’re back to fighting in some of the very same states once again against voter suppression, and what does that mean in 2014 and 2016?

    What about spying? King had J. Edgar Hoover. We have Obama and the NSA. Is this a major concern for you?

    Then there’s our generation’s problems such as Citizens United, McCutcheon v FEC, Net Neutrality, TPP and TTIP, and a hyper-partisan, obstructionist 2-party system that only seems to agree when Big Money is on the line.

    Is there a root cause to all these issues? If so, what should we be doing about it?  I have some ideas. I’d like to hear yours.

    Equal Pay Day; FEC Vacancies Mean Lax Electoral Enforcement

    in News

    Equal Pay Day 2013: Women Still Making Fraction What Men Make
    Today is Equal Pay Day, the day in which advocates say women must work until to make the same amount as men made last year. Nearly 50 years after the passing of the Equal Pay Act of 1963, full-time year-round female employees make only as much as 80 percent of what their male counterparts make. Those analyzing this look at various factors such as occupational preferences and differences in the degree that men and women differ in family activities, but many studies still point to discrimination as being at least one factor. We talk to Fatima Goss Graves, Vice President for Education and Employment at the National Women's Law Center in Washington, DC.
    FEC Vacancies Mean Lack of Electoral Law Enforcement
    Beset by a long-term vacancy and ridden with deadlock, the Federal Elections Commission has become seen as mostly dysfunctional, unable to carry out its task of enforcing rules regarding elections and electoral finance. A recent column in Roll Call referred to the FEC as a lame-duck, a reference to the fact that the terms for every remaining member are about to expire, and it goes on to point out a growing backlog of work and even the ability to even determine when violations occur. We speak to the author of that column, Eliza Newlin Carney who is also a staff writer for CQ Roll Call covering lobbying and influence.

    Houston Area Move To Amend Discusses Money & Politics

    This week the Supreme Court removed the aggregate limit of dollars that anyone can spend in any election cycle. This puts our entire democracy up for sale to the highest bidder. There are organizations throughout the nation building grassroots movements to amend the constitution in order to fix this constitutional aberration. One of the most successful ones is Move To Amend.,

    After the Supreme Court ruling, an affiliate of Move To Amend, Houston Area Move To  Amend(Facebook) effected a successful protest in Houston. I am honored to have three of their leaders discuss the corrosive nature of money in our body politic, the apathy that it has caused, and the solutions. Madeleine Crozat-Williams, Mike Badzioch, and Ben Ball will spend the hour with us and will be ready to answer questions.

    Politics Done Right - Koch Brothers Respond To Harry Reid Exposure

    in Politics

    This week was a bad week for our democracy. The Supreme Court removed the aggregate limit of dollars that anyone can spend in any election cycle. Only around 646 people reached that limit in the 2011-2012 election cycle. In other words, the Supreme Court ruled that those 646 people’s right of free speech was denied.

    This makes the smoking out of wealthy donors that are corrupting the body politic that more important. Senator Harry Reid has begun the process by calling out the Koch Brothers on the floor of the Senate. That seemed to have hurt Charles Koch’s feelings. He penned an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal in which he referred to those who do not see the world as a plutocrat’s domain as collectivists. Let’s talk about that.

    Give me a call.
