  • Impeachment Call To Action

    in Politics

    Impeachment speaker needed?

    JB Williams and Karen Bracken will provide us with an update on the impeachment program just off the heels of Stephen Pidgeon and his Impeachment report on One America News Network. 

    Wikipedia--"During the Obama presidency, republican congressmembers have stated that Obama may have engaged in impeachable activity and may face removal from office. Rationales offered for impeachment have included an alleged White House cover-up after the 2012 Benghazi related American deaths.

    In May 2010, Republican Issa of Calif. said the allegation the White House had offered Pennsylvania Representative Joe Sestak a job to persuade Sestak to drop out of the Penn. senate election against Arlen Spector "is one that everyone from Arlen Spector to Dick Morris has said is in fact a crime, and could be impeachable". With the possibility of becoming chairman of the Oversight and reform committee in January 2011, Issa said in October 2010 that the committee would not seek to impeach Obama.

    In August 2011, Republican Congressman Michael Burgess of Texas stated that the impeachment of Barack Obama "needs to happen" in order to prevent Obama from "pushing his agenda". Burgess did not mention any grounds for impeachment. In June 2012, Senator Joe Kyl said on the Bill Bennett radio show that "impeachment is always a possibility" when discussing the Obama policy on immigration

    May 2013: James Inhofe, Benghazi attack reason for impeachment.

    Blake Farenthold said at a town hall said Obama should be impeached on birth certificate issues.

    Kerry Bentivolio would like to write articles of impeachment, a dream come true"

  • Onsite Health Clinics & Open Enrollment

    in Business

    On this week's edition of HealthCare Consumerism Radio, your hosts Doug Field and Andrew Dietz will talk with special guests from CBIZ and Acclaris on topics ranging from onsite clinics to health savings accounts. 

    For the first segment on this week's show, the hosts will welcome Polly Thomas, Director of Employee Benefit Consulting & On-Site Clinic Consultant, CBIZ, to the program to talk about onsite health clinics and why they're not just for large employers any longer. Onsite clinics have changed over the course of the past year and will continue to do so, especially as reporting requirements as mandated by the ACA come into play. Though onsite clinics are traditionally thought to be outside the realm of smaller organizations’ resources, this is all changing as shared-site or near-site clinics rise in popularity. In this interview, Polly will discuss why onsite clinics are becoming a more widely adopted means of incorporating holistic wellness and prevention methods in the workplace.

    For the second segment, Acclaris CEO Dean Mason will return to the program to discuss this year's open enrollment trends. Fall enrollment is nothing new, but this year will be more challenging for employers and consumers alike thanks to continued health care industry shifts. Consumers need to navigate more varied and complex plan options than ever before and the market is bursting with new legislation and ever-increasing regulatory oversight. In this segment, Dean will share his take on fall enrollment, especially the need to address the convergence of finance, health care and consumerism.

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1203

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Geri Lynn Weinstein Matthews, MSW, LCSW, from New Mexico who's produced and co-directed "Justice Denied," a newly released 30 minute documentary that takes male sexual assault in the military out of the shadows. Geri Lynn will be joined by her husband, Michael Matthews, a survivor of both child abuse and sexual assault in the military. Geri Lynn was sexually assaulted herself, when she attended college as an undergraduate. Michael says, "I was 19 years old in the United States Air Force, the year was 1974, and I thought I was the only one." He'd been knocked unconscious and gang raped by his fellow airmen. "I kept my secret bottled up for 30 years, never telling a single solitary soul." One evening, 20 years into their marriage, he mustered up the courage to tell his supportive wife, Geri Lynn, who said "together we will get through this." The film they've created, "Justice Denied," is a 30 minute documentary that takes male sexual assault in the military out of the shadows. It's been screened at the Pentagon and US Senate, is now being used a an educational tool on military installations. Sexual assault involves power, control and domination. Statistics suggest that 90% of all males who are raped try to commit suicide at least twice in a lifetime. When a closed systems such as the military does not validate the rape survivor, men and women, the perpetrator gets to continue their criminal behavior without consequence. In being solution focused, Geri and Michael support a new bill, HR 1593, The Stop Act introduced by Congresswoman Jackie Speier. Her bill is all inclusive and stresses civilian oversight, unlike other watered-down versions currently on the table.
