    The U.S. Presidents & Slavery

    in Culture

    On this show we are discussing “The U.S. Presidents and Slavery”.  This is a good time for this discussion since "Presidents Day" just passed.

    “Schools across the country are adorned with posters of the 44 U.S. presidents, children’s books put students on a first-name basis with the presidents, and U.S. history textbooks describe the accomplishments and challenges of the major presidential administrations.

    “But while these books engage students and readers with stories of the presidents’ accomplishments and challenges, stories of their dogs in the Rose Garden or childhood escapades, there is no mention that more than 1-in-4 U.S. presidents were involved in human trafficking and slavery. These presidents bought, sold and bred enslaved people for profit. Of the 12 presidents who were enslavers, more than half kept people in bondage at the White House.”

    Pathetic People, Presidents, and Boobies

    in Comedy

    Jay and Matt sweep up the broken pieces of the pathetic men who bought overpriced crap and the pathetic women who were “under-appreciated” and/or had their hearts broken on Valentine’s Day. They also spend time feigning outrage and overtly mocking the nationwide cinematic opening of Fifty Shades of Grey. But wait, there’s MORE!!

    Presidents’ Day is upon us and it is incumbent upon the IWS staff to make fun of each and every Oval Office inhabitant that has ever tried to govern this great nation. If that isn’t enough, IWS Radio drinks in the debauchery of Mardi Gras and talks of repentance with the arrival of Lent. Jay and Matt will also talk candidly and openly about the moral and ethical question facing us today…

    Should Jay and Matt begin to post pictures of fully-exposed boobs and bare-naked booties upon the IWS Radio website?  All of that plus your phone calls at 661.244.9852 as IWS Radio celebrates Pathetic People, Presidents, and Boobies!!

    The Unknown Zone: Are the Elites Picking the Presidents?

    in Paranormal

    The most recent democratic presidential debate resulted in a stark dichotomy.  The "expert" pundits all saw a great victory by Hillary Clinton and was trumpeted across the internet and every major newspaper in a prewirtten script, yet every poll from CNN to Fox, from MSNBC to Drudge had Bernie Sanders winning by an overwhelming majority.  What could explain this?

    Have the elites already picked the presidential nominees?  What are the connections between Hillary Clinton and CNN, ABC, CBS and more.  The truth will shock you but explains a lot.
    Judy Sellins and Dave Turco will bring all of the real information about the unspoken connections between the ruling world elites and the current crop of US presidential candidates and how the media is controlled by the same forces resulting in a perpetual loop of hand picked presidents who serve the elite few not the many US citizens.

    June 3, 2015, 10pm (PDT) - UFOs and Presidents with Grant Cameron

    in Paranormal

    Grant Cameron became involved in Ufology as the Vietnam War ended in May 1975 with personal sightings of an object which locally became known as Charlie Red Star.  The sightings occurred in Carman, Manitoba about 25 miles north of the Canada-US border. Hundreds of other people sighted objects at the same time during a prolonged flap of sightings.

    In the past few years Cameron has turned his research interests to the involvement and actions of the President of the United States in the UFO problem. He has made 25+ trips to the National Archives in Washington D.C.,and most of the various Presidential archives around the country looking for presidential UFO material. One highlight his presidential UFO research was the chance to question Vice-president Dick Cheney on his knowledge of the UFO subject. Another highlight of the presidential UFO research was a FOIA to the White House Office of Science and Technology which yielded 1,000 pages of UFO documents from the Clinton administration. Many of these findings dealing with the involvement of Bill and Hillary Clinton have been written up on The Presidents UFO Website www.presidentialufo.com.

    He was awarded the International Researcher of the Year at the 2012 Leeds UFO conference, and the Researcher of the Year at the 2013 International UFO Congress in Phoenix Arizona.

    He lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada where he works full time on the UFO mystery.

    Ivan Eland--Another Look At Presidents Harding and Carter #2772

    in Finance

    In his latest installment of judging former presidents, Ivan writes, "Two former presidents have recently been in the news for unfavorable reasons. Recent DNA testing showed that Republican Warren Harding, already believed to have had an extra-marital affair with at least one mistress, likely had a love child with another, perhaps confirming the second one's tell-all book about their affair written in the 1920s after Harding had died in office. Another former president, Democrat Jimmy Carter, announced that he had cancer. What do these seemingly unrelated chief executives--in both time, party, and temperament--have in common? They were both significantly better presidents than the historical reputations they have been given.

    In fact, these presidents may have been better than they themselves believed. Warren Harding famously admitted that he was unfit for the role of chief executive. In Jimmy Carter's case, he has done little to try to improve the historical memory of his time in office, instead concentrating on many noteworthy humanitarian accomplishments during his post-presidency--perhaps an admission that things didn't go so well while he was in the White House. These two men were too hard on themselves."

    Larry Holcombe, Presidents and UFOs

    in Paranormal

    Larry Holcombe took up writing after retiring from a long career in sales. He has had a lifetime interest in the UFO topic, so his first book The Great River Disclosure was a fiction based off of his UFO beleifs. Having done well as an author, Holcombe proposed to his literary agent the idea of doing a non-fiction book on UFOs. He had been told an amazing story about how Nixon's reelection committee had wanted a movie on UFOs to be made and proposed it include real UFO film provided by the Air Force. This idea expanded into a book not just about Nixon's UFO interests, but all Presidents from FDR to Obama. The idea was picked up St. Martin's Press, and his book The Presidents and UFOs:A Secret History from FDR to Obama came out on March 17, 2015.

    In this interview, we talk to Holcombe about the making of the book, the research he conducted to write the book, and some of the amazing stories in the book.

    Monday Madness, Weird News and Our Presidents Rock

    in Pop Culture

    Juliette Turner joins Joe to discuss her new book Our Presidents Rock. She's 16 and written her second book. Juliette will also discuss recent news events that you probably won't hear anywhere else.

    And in the 2nd hour, Andrea Nelson joins in with the latest pop culture and "other news." Tune in, you'll be surprised at some of the weird news stories and what passes for news nowadays!

    Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?

    There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.

    Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.

    But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!

    If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you! 

    It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!
