SORT BY Relevancy
Dr. Chaps reports on these important issues:
* President Obama is now helping Iran to invade Iraq to stop radical Sunni Muslims there.
* We explain the difference between Shia and Sunni Muslim extremists.
* Christians in Iraq are being exterminated at record rates.
Mick, Lew, Kristy, and Mike this week will be talking about Tennessee "Senator" Brian Kelsey and his bill that proposes it be legal to discriminate against gay people in the business world. Mr. Kelsey wants to make it legal for businesses to deny service to gay people. We may get to talk about Shia LeBeouf and his current very public meltdown as well as a new segment where we recite quotes and the QIR gang has to figure out whether it was said by a black or white person.
in Self Help
Actor Shia LaBeouf made headlines last fall when he disclosed that a patron attending his #IAMSORRY performance art exhibit sexually assaulted him. What really happened? Will we ever know? His startling confession and subsequent controversy provoked a broader question: can a woman really rape a man?
The answer is a resounding yes. Today on BOLD, Christopher M. Anderson joins us to bring this issue out of the shadows. According to research, 86% of male survivors of female offenders are not believed.
Christopher is the Executive Director of Male Survivor, the leading not-for profit organization committed to preventing, healing and eliminating all forms of male sexual victimization.
With the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran, Shiites in the region felt encouraged to try and secure equal treatment as that given to Sunni's. Shiites in Saudi Arabia were very receptive to Khomeini and his attacks on the Saudi royal family on the grounds that Islam and hereditary kingship are not compatible. As a result, 1979 saw a marked increase in the mobilisation of the Shiite community in Saudi Arabia, with demonstrations often being centered around Shiite festivals. The celebration of these festivals, including that of the Day of Ashura, was banned.
Also, a secret deal with Israel and Saudi arm's deal to Sudan which was clandestine in 1981 between some of Ariel Sharon's private business partners, a Saudi attache and an African leader that would suppress Libya and beef up military in Eastern Africa. I also play footage of intensity of Israel-Lebanese conflict of 1982.
THE SAUDI king is dead, Yemen has fallen to Shiite rebels, Hezbollah has killed two IDF soldiers, and war rages on in Syria and Iraq. Avi Davis, president of the American Freedom Alliance, joins us to discuss the rapidly changing geopolitical scene in the Middle East.
Why New American State?
Our country is going through transformations not seen since the Industrial Revolution. America is transforming because it HAS TO. The current state of our nation, politically and economically, is unsustainable. Change is the only certainty. I am a part of that change. If you live in the United States, consciously or unconsciously, YOU are a part of that change too. As we go through these changes together, we will be the ones redefining the state of America, the new American state. These are extraordinary times.
Mon-Fri 8-10 pm eastern
The White House says a terrorist is not a radical Islamist. Do you agree? If you were a Muslim, how would you feel about having your life reduced to being a reflection of the actions of those who would choose to do evil in the name of religion. How do the actions of Kouchi borthers, or the Tsarnaevs, ISIS, Boko Haram, Al Qaeda and other extremists affect those who peacefully follow an ages old religion?

Welcome to a Brand New Year of the Urban Woman Radio on BlogTalkRadio. We have alot of things to discuss. Did you see the movie Selma ? I had the pleasure of attending a Press Screening as well as Q&A Session with the Producers and Stars of the Movie. Selma is a powerful movie that is very timely to what is happening now in both Ferguson and NYC.
Selma won a Golden Globe for Best Original Song "Glory". Common gave a powerful speech about how Selma changed his views. I think Selma should have won more awards. David Oyelowo was nominated for a Golden Globe but did not win. I think that is a real injustice. But I am not surprised. David also did very well in The Butler. He has a very unique personality. David is not a Jamie Foxx or a Denzel Washington. I am so happy that Oprah recognizes his talent and genuine spirit. He is unlike anything we have ever seen.
I think Ava Devurnay should have won for Best Director. She is the first African American Woman to be nominated for such an honor. Parts of the movie reminded me of Malcolm X. Ava made us explore parts of the character of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr that we had not looked into before. He was much more than "I Have A Dream.." Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was not without flaws. The movie implied that he was not faithful to Coretta or "Corey" as he lovingly referrred to her. I never stopped to think about his jealousy of Malcolm X. Ava did an outstanding job.
No show would be complete without mentioning Dance Moms. We are in Season 5. Three of the original dancers are gone. Nia will most likely become the newest scapegoat. In order to keep the show relevant and full of controversy, Abby Lee Miller is allowing Maddie to participate in Music Videos that will lead to many discussions. First it was Chandelier and now its Elastic which co stars Shia Lebouf.
The Sabra and Shatila Massacre, Human Spirit, Monotheism, Universal Consciousness, Henoch Prophecies
The Sabra and Shatila massacre was the killing of between 762 and 3,500 civilians, mostly Palestinians and Lebanese Shiites, by a militia close to the Kataeb Party, also called Phalange, a predominantly Christian Lebanese right-wing party, in the Sabra neighborhood and the adjacent Shatila refugee camp in Beirut, Lebanon. From approximately 6:00 pm 16 September to 8:00 am 18 September 1982 a widespread massacre was carried out by the militia.
