    Fascism From Mussolini to the Corporate State in America. Two Discussions

    in Politics

    *The F-word is “fascism”. It’s tenets include supremacy of the military, the need for perpetual war and a disdain for pacifism, a merging of corporate and state power, dismantling the unions, indirect control of the media, national security and patriotism as a motivational tool for the masses, government corruption, candidates appointed by the party command, and an erosion of voter rights." Sound familiar? Media talks about capitalism, communism, socialism, libertarians, theocracies, and various systems in-between them. But the media never discusses fascism. Why?  I first discuss the history of Fascism with one of the world’s leading experts on Fascism, Donald Sassoon – a professor of Comparative European History at Queen Mary, University of London.  Then I am joined by two acclaimed talk show hosts, Egberto Willies of Politics Done Right and Bobby Rodrigo, of I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee as we dissect fascism tenet by tenet and examine them to see how they might apply to the United States.  Please listen to this important conversation and judge for yourself. Could fascism occur in the U.S.? If so, what are you going to do about it? The Tim Danahey Show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective. The show does not espouse a political agenda. Danahey’s strength is to take complex subjects, talk with experts and make them comprehensible and entertaining for average listeners.

    "Medical Marijuana! We Take Your Children" on "I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee"

    in Politics

    Recent headlines about state children services' departments and police agencies removing children from homes where medical marijuana is being used has created a serious concern. Authorities have ignored the recent change in laws about marijuana and continued to separate families when they find out marijuana is being used in homes where children live. The Shona Banda case in Kansas is an example.  The laws governing how states behave in this matter and, how a person who has had their children taken away can fight to get their children back, is a huge legal gray area with lots of discretion by judges, the police, and the child services' workers.  Domestic Custody Attorney Alfred Chang joins us this morning and offers expert insight in to this very important issue in our community. What to do if your children are removed from your home due to the use of marijuana both medically and recreational? What are your rights? What is the standard of evidence? How does this problem tie to any criminal process? Grab a cup of coffee and join us for an update on important current events and our education update. Long time Activist, Radio Host, Journalist and Coffee Party Director Bobby Rodrigo's show "I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee" on Coffee Party USA Radio every Sunday Morning at 8:30AM EDT. Advocating engagement, pointing out the Constitution is the Rule of Law and why it should remain so.

    Detaining & Jailing: The Corporate Way on "I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee"

    in Politics

    As I reported on earlier this week for The Fifth Column News twice in the past fifteen days, two separate class action lawsuits, one in U.S. District Court, one in Grady County Superior Court, were filed naming Red Hills Community Probation (RHCP) LLC, its CEO Margaret B. Crutchfield, and the cities of Cairo, Pelham and Bainbridge, GA, as defendants.  The Federal case, Edwards, et al, v Red Hills Community Probation LLC, et al, filed by the Southern Center for Human Rights, also names probation officers and members of various police departments. The state case, Green v Red Hills, et al, alleges the defendants violated a number of state statutes including various RICO laws as well. The two cases, though not connected in any way, arise out of nearly identical facts and the same pattern of conduct. Joining me this morning to discuss the merits of the case is Attorney for the Plaintiff in Green, K, Todd Butler. Attorney Butler will discuss the allegations and the law supporting his decision to advance a RICO legal argument to the court. Along with the improper and illegal actions of a corporation acting "under color of state law", for the sole purpose of profit.  I will be covering the latest important news subjects as well as our weekly education battle updates. Longtime Activist, Radio Host, Journalist and Coffee Party Director Bobby Rodrigo's show "I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee" on Coffee Party USA Radio every Sunday Morning at 8:30AM EDT. Advocating engagement, pointing out the Constitution is the Rule of Law and why it should remain so.

    in Politics

    More recent polarizing issues are being reported and commented on in all forms of media. Recent legislation in Indiana and Arkansas, Jade Helm 15 and of course Money in Politics. While reading and monitoring how these issues are being reported, once again, partisan media and organizations continue to spin irresponsible narratives, with some that are literally blatantly false. Yet people will follow this disinformation down the rabbit hole and then adopt them as fact and essentially removing any chance for even a reasonable discussion on what is really going on so we as a society can actually fix it. This week I have asked a Media Panel to discuss specific issues that are not being reported honestly and how this type of irresponsible reporting continues to keep us divided as a society.

    "The Destruction of Public Education" on "I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee"

    in Politics

    Our Public Education is being destroyed.  It's as simple as that. Common Core, Race to the Top, Charter School Disinformation and Money, Money, Money.  In New York, a battle rages that dates back to misappropriation of Public School Funds, Cuomo trying to cut Public Education and give money to charter schools and, of course, Common Core.  Created by businessmen and shoved down the throats of parents and teachers with a focus on testing, Common Core is the cherry on top of the continued push to turn Public Education into a business. Joining me today is Teacher/Activist Marla Kilfoyle. Marla, a manager of Badass Teacher Association has been a parent advocate on Long Island in such groups as Parents and Teachers Against Common Core and LI Opt-Out.

    "28 Years As A Police Officer" a conversation on "I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee"

    in Politics

    The discussion about Police in our society has changed.  The Militarization of our local police departments, daily reports of police brutality, lack of transparency and police policy that undermines Constitutional Protections,  With so much negative happening and being reported the larger "positives" are forgotten.  Like our society the majority of people who join the Police do so for the right reasons. Serve and protect. A life of sacrifice and peril. A life of good works. With this in mind I introduce you to Stefan Komar of the NYPD. A person who understands history, activism and the good fight.  The son of a hero member of the Polish Underground during World War II. A man who loves his work and his community and the law. Mr. Komar will not be speaking on behalf of the NYPD in any way, but for himself. Please join us for a frank discussion about his choices,observations. good works and beliefs during his 28 year career. Have a cup of coffee with a real Police Officer.  Long time Activist, Coffee Party Newsroom Editor & Radio Host, Bobby Rodrigo's new show on "I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee" on Coffee Party USA Radio every Sunday Morning at 8:30AM.
