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.”
Glynn Burrows chats with Big Blend Radio hosts Nancy J. Reid and Lisa D. Smith about tracing family history back to Norfolk, England and American Presidents such as Abraham Lincoln, who have family ties in East Anglia towns as Norfolk, Essex, and Suffolk. Glynn is a family historian and owner of Norfolk Tours in England. Watch for his upcoming article on American Presidents with English family connections in the July issue of Big Blend Radio & TV Magazine.
This interview originally aired on June 7, 2015 on Big Blend Radio's Champagne Sundays show, that broadcasted live from the historic Coronado Motor Hotel in Yuma, Arizona.
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!!
Grant Cameron became involved in Ufology as the Vietnam War endedÂÂ in May 1975 with personal sightings of an object which locally became known as Charlie Red Star.ÂÂÂ 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.

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!
Ceddy J and JoJo start your week off with Hot After Dusk Mondays as they talk hot news, hot mess, and hot music.
