    in News

    LOCAL GOVERNMENT IGNORING YOU?


    Local government agencies routinely disregard the state's Public Records Act, rejecting outright — or stonewalling — requests for indisputably public information more than 75% of the time. Citizens seeking key records are forced either to abandon their pursuit of the records or to take the costly step of hiring a lawyer to sue the agencies to compel disclosure.
     
    In a recent survey, sheriffs' departments were the worst offender, denying requests for clearly public records 80% of the time. This rejection rate compared to 64% for police departments. Cities performed only slightly better, denying 60% of the requests for public documents, while school districts denied access almost 33% of the time.
     
    This public records "audit," designed to assess local government compliance with the California Public Records Act (CPRA), was undertaken by the California First Amendment Coalition (CFAC) and the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) and was supported by volunteer students of the journalism departments from five California universities. Under the supervision of their journalism professors, several dozen university students asked more than 130 local government agencies in the San Francisco Bay Area and the counties of Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino for information whose release to the public is clearly mandated by state law.
     
    The records sought were those that track responses by police to citizens' distress calls, why school boards expel students, how cities pursue health and safety violations by slumlords, and why people die in prisons, jails or simply under arrest.

    Ralph Poynter What's Happening, August 4, 2015, Anatomy of Oppression VI

    in Politics Progressive

    ANATOMY OF OPPRESSION – PART VI - We supposedly have the inalienable right of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, but Black and Brown people live now and have always lived under and around arbitrary authority that is white authority. Control of education is an integral part of democratic organization - a very natural and obvious structure. Community Control of police is against the organization of government control from the top down. Jim Crow is not dead but alive and well and growing by the minute. The question for our next broadcast is...Do we have the emotional capacity to deal with this reality?

    This week we will examine the 2016 election campaign. Hilary Clinton Democrats think they can run without the Left.  They feel we are so afraid of Donald Trump that we will vote for anybody to avoid the New Nazis.  But we won’t.  We have our own agendas.  Free all Political Prisoners. Convict Killer Cops, etc.  However, if we do indeed have an agenda…then it’s time to WALK THE TALK. ~ Ralph Poynter

    Hear a special discussion led by Dick Minnerly and the radio panelists (Larry Pinkney, Lynne Stewart, Joel Meyers and Ralph Poynter) concerning “…. most people in the world today agree that the best form of government is a democracy.  But what that term means to them is not always clear, since it has two conflicting senses.  It can mean the fundamental principles of proper government that were stated by leftist thinkers before that revolution, or it can mean the type of electoral government that elitists, or selfish rightists, established after it.  The term has been dichotomous in this way ever since that revolution because, as our dictionaries show, it refers to both a leftist and a rightist view.”

    Tithing: The Government & Taxes

    in Christianity

    Government Taxes Replace Theocratic Tithes (Romans 13:1-7) Paul is speaking specifically about governmental authorities, directing that taxes be paid to the state. In this case, Rome had replaced the theocracy in the governing of Israel. Though the Law of Moses was respected as tradition by the Romans, and the Israelites were allowed to follow the commandments, Israel was no longer a theocracy, and was not free to worship God the way God had commanded them to.


    Summary of Tithing Under Grace Throughout the New Testament, Paul's vocabulary and teaching suggest that giving is voluntary and that there is no set percentage. In fact, nowhere in the New Testament are believers told to tithe by anyone! Or even how much to give, when or to whom. They are only encouraged to provide for those who are in need, their ministers, and for the stranger.


    WHERE ARE WE NOW?


    Under Law? Under the Law, relationship with God is defined by how well you fulfill His commandments. Anyone can attempt do this; you don't have to know God to tithe. Tithing doesn't bring anyone into a closer relationship with God or with others, and it doesn't contribute to a relationship that already exists.


    Grace Full Relationship! We still find it so hard to comprehend that the God of the universe loves us so much that there is nothing He requires of us but to accept His love. He provides for us because He loves us.


    CONSEQUENCES (Why Is This So Important?)


    Matter of Control How much, when and to whom we give of our resources, our time and our money, is often one of the ways we gain or maintain control.


    Believers Not Learning How to Hear the Lord


    Social Infrastructure Based on Money


     
    Not Giving God's Way is Contrary to Our New Nature

    The ANDREA SHEA KING SHOW - Larry Klayman, Freedom Watch

    in Politics Conservative

    Larry Klayman, founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, joins us this evening with an update on the work he's doing in opposition to the Iran Nuclear Deal.
    Larry ran for the U.S. Senate in 2004 as a Republican in Florida's primary. After the race ended, he founded Freedom Watch. He's known for his strong public interest advocacy in furtherance of ethics in government and individual freedoms and liberties.

    During his tenure at Judicial Watch, he obtained a court ruling that Bill Clinton committed a crime, the first lawyer ever to have done so against an American president.

    Klayman became so famous for fighting corruption in government and the legal profession that the NBC hit drama series "West Wing" created a character after him: Harry Klaypool of Freedom Watch. His character was played by actor John Diehl.
