    Felony laws that forbid those with felony convictions to vote. .

    Thanks to Jim Crow Era Law, 1 in 4 African-American Adults Can't Vote in Florida's Primary

    State Felon Voting Laws

    We thank http://www.procon.org/  PROS AND CONS OF CONTROVERSIAL ISSUES

    We thank http://www.democracynow.org/ For the lead in to this story.

    Almost 6 million people across the United States are prohibited from voting as a result of state felony disenfranchisement laws that forbid those with felony convictions to vote. Florida has the highest number of disenfranchised voters. Over 10 percent of adults in the state cannot vote because they have a felony conviction. Nearly one in four black adults is disenfranchised. We speak to Desmond Meade, president of the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition. He’s also chair of Floridians for a Fair Democracy. He is an ex-offender who is still disenfranchised.

    Whistleblowers! Michael McCray and the workings of EEOC inside the USDA

    in Politics

    Hosted by Marti Oakley

    Whistleblowers! is brought to you in coordination with Marcel Reid and the Whistleblowers Summit, July 27-29th 2016 in Washington D.C.

    Guest: Attorney Michael McCray: The 40 million dollar whistleblower.

    A former federal employee turned whistleblower who filed a series of EEO (Equal Employment Opportunity) grievances against USDA for continuous discrimination, retaliation and harassment. A separate class action was filed.

    Because of EEO MDM110, complainants are prohibited from filing grievances about the processing of EEO complaints. This means the EEOC is able to avoid consideration of claims that an agency was violating EEO Rules and Regulations through its normal grievance process.

    This self protecting rule allows the USDA via the EEO Commission to willfully, intentionally and repeatedly violate their own mandatory rules and regulations.

    Black History Month series (Relationships Between Black Banks & Black Churches)

    in Culture

    Has misunderstandings, past hurts, ignorance, trusting the "other" with what God has blessed you with, or even an "it doesn't matter" attitude prohibited the Black dollar from being maximized in the Black community and/or for the economic empowerment of Black people? What happens when you deposit "your" money into a Black bank? What happens when you "tithe", "give", "sow" or "do business with" a Black church?  What happens when neither of these two powerful economic entities are divergent of one another?   On this show, we WILL examine and conclude this series with what Black people can do to do better. After this show, there will be no more excuses for Black people and these community institutions to NOT fully support each other.  #BlackMoneyMatters   #PRF

    Do Black Lives Matter in America?

    in US Government

    It is 2016 and the primary targets in US schools for being beaten like former US plantation slaves are Black American schoolboys, followed by Black American schoolgirls (https://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=CBgX-loGr1I), although, together these two populations make up a small percentage of the nations entire school population.

    Join The Hitting Stops Here! in supporting an end to slave-like beatings of schoolchildren and teens at the hands of educators and other school authorities, replacing this barbaric practice with discipline methodologies used in top-performing schools, where all forms of "pain-based behavior management" are prohibited and frowned upon.

    Tune-in on the last day of Black American History Month to find out whether or not black lives matter in America, by taking a look at the evidence:

    The passage from clan to monolingual tribe, i.e., to ethnic group, to nationality, is a consequence of clan exogamy; biological and material reasons, the nature of which is still being discussed by specialists, very early led archaic society to practice  the prohibition of incest, which marked the starting point of civilization.  Clan endogamy being prohibited, several neighboring class contracted marriage ties that with time became bonds of kinship by alliance.  All these clans that occupied the same territory ended up speaking the same language even if their idioms were originally different.  The number of clans that can gather together, to form a more or less powerful tribe does not follow any rule and depends, at the most on the fertility and extent of the land occupied by the group. Thus was born nationality.  The individual would bear the clinic name, especially after detribalization.” CHEIKH ANTA DIOP.  We see here that the birth of Nationalism comes with a price.

    GOD's [Guiding Our Daughters] Blog

    in Women

    Women and children are victimized at alarming rates, and most assaults occur domestically. We are taught by examples both blatantly and subliminally, to keep home matters quiet, to avoid the possibilities of even more dire effects. We wear cosmetics to cover scars, whether than repair our foundations to heal wounds. We dress either too conservatively, or loosely, disguising and/ or trying to fit in. We keep secrets; safeguarding things that are, or should be prohibited, as if making the violation taboo will make it stop, vanish or erase from memory. And worst of all... We are often so programmed by society to hate ourselves (our images, our voices, our lineages, and our race) that we subconsciously hate each other, thus passing on the torch of emptiness. We compare and judge each other; the prettiest is admired, but loathed simultaneously. The wealthy or happy are envied with contempt. We even go as far to BLAME OURSELVES for the abuse that absolutely, no one, ever, deserves. Well, we need to WAKE-UP!!! It's time to see the significance in ourselves and each other. It's time to disrobe of the disillusion that we have to be competitive, secretive, envious and at fault of abuse. Plain and simple…We need to Stand-Up and Up-Lift each other! Man, Woman and Child!! But since children and women are the most vulnerable… Let’s all take a stand in helping each other thrive, by sharing our experiences for wisdom and strength. Let’s lookout for our children and practice accountability instead of division. Let’s reflect the GOD within our souls. YES – the GOD within our souls, by being loving, nurturing, empathetic and protective.

    The Danger of Rebellion

    in Religion

    "For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king." (1 Samuel 15:23) 

    Rebellion is described in the Bible as divination.  In the KJV, it is translated "witchcraft." 

    Strong's:  H7081

    qesem: A masculine noun meaning divination. This word described the cultic practice of foreign nations that was prohibited in Israel (Deu_18:10); and considered a great sin (1Sa_15:23; 2Ki_17:17). False prophets used divination to prophesy in God's name, but God identified them as false (Jer_14:14; Eze_13:6); and pledged to remove such practices from Israel (Eze_13:23). Several verses give some insight into what this actual practice looked like: it was compared to a kingly sentence (Pro_16:10); and was used to discern between two choices (Eze_21:21-22 [26-27]). (The Complete Wordstudy Dictionary)

    Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition of divination:  The art or practice that seeks to foresee or foretell future events or discover hidden knowledge usually by the interpretation of omens or by the aid of supernatural powers.

    Rebellion attracts demonic forces to influence and control. 

    "Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience." (Ephesians 2:2)

    Rebellion is also linked with stubbornness & wickedness and idolatry.  The history of the people of Israel involves rebellion (Psalm 78 and Nehemiah 9). 

    How can a believer overcome the sin of rebellion?

    State Sovereignty Show : Full Moon Rising

    in Politics Conservative

    It's Not About Right and Left. It's About Right and Wrong!

    With the opening bell of the 2016 legislative session in Jefferson City, our thoughts turn closer to home and our good friend Representative Mike Moon joins us again weekly for a live first-hand look inside the business of government. As with past years, Mike will join us every Friday to explain what is going on at your seat of government.

    In the second hour, Mike Slack will come aboard to talk about a rally tomorrow at the Springfield and KCI airports over concerns about the Real ID program. Not sure what that is? Want to be involved? Come along and find out.

    And, should local governments be prohibited from using political, administrative methods to "remove" a governing member elected by the people? At least one major town in Missouri allows a majority of city council members to remove another member over political disagreements. How is that government by, for, or of the people?

    Join BTR Featured Host Dave and Lloyd tonight, Friday, January 8 at 7PM Missouri Time for the latest in how we take our State and our country back. Want to participate? The studio line is 347-677-1835. It's the best Friday night you'll spend this week.

    JIMMY CARTER quits church because they "use Bible to subjugate women."  Does Bible teach women are to be subservient to men? Is this healthy?  Richard & comic Brooke Arnold debate woman-hating fundamentalist Rev. Daniel Hyles, head of B.O.W. (BIBLICALLY OBEDIENT WOMEN).  Callers include an apostolic female preacher, a transgender woman, a Hollywood actress, & an agnostic.  Hyles is "dedicated to change women's roles back to 'obedient wives.'"  Hyles comments on President Carter's decision today to leave the Southern Baptists.  "B.O.W. stands for 'Biblically Obedient Women," Hyles says.  "Women are to submit to man as unto God, & call him 'Lord,' as Sara did Abraham.  Carter is headed for hell unless he returns to teaching the Word that women must bow."

    President Carter's statement that will be discussed on show reads as follows:

    "Women & girls have been discriminated against for too long in a twisted interpretation of the word of God.  I HAVE been a practising Christian all my life and a deacon and Bible teacher for many years. My faith is a source of strength & comfort to me, as religious beliefs are to hundreds of millions of people around the world. So my decision to sever my ties with the Southern Baptist Convention, after six decades, was painful & difficult. It was, however, an unavoidable decision when the convention's leaders, quoting a few carefully selected verses & claiming Eve was created second to Adam & was responsible for original sin, ordained that women must be "subservient" to their husbands & prohibited from serving as deacons, pastors or chaplains in military service."
