Former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden Shocked the world with informatione that the Federal Government was using two secret programs to spy on Americans and collect information about all of their phone and internet activity. Is He a Hero or a Traitor? We'll Discuss.
Edward Snowden is the NSA whistleblower that came forward and told The Guardian about the program that left American citizens under surveillance. The first thing to keep in mind is that we reported here a couple of weeks ago that this is not new. The Patriot Act has given the NSA the ability to spy on Americans since it was made law and they have. I played audio of two NSA whistleblowers from years ago. But focusing on the current situation, do you think Snowden is a hero or treasonous? Lt. Col. Ralph Peters thinks he is guilty of treason. I'll tell you what I think. It's been a hot debate and while it has raged, Snowden has gone missing.
That and the news of the day! Conservative libertarian irreverent commentary on the current events in news and politics with a whole lot of pulling back the curtain to reveal the "wizards" behind it all!
Today Sam and Yaakov will branch out a little bit and get some other topics in today's episode of Classic Hock. We'll round out the LeBron conversation, talk some Mets and Yankees, and predict what the Giants and Jets will do this season.
We'll spend the second half of the show on some movies and music. Yaakov will be talking "Hero" and Sam will give a review of the latest Neeson film, "Non Stop."
For those who were paying attention (ahem!), you might have seen that Kim Waters was scheduled for 8/19. As it turned out, Kim wrote to apologize - because he discovered that his plane to Washington, D.C. was going to be IN THE AIR at the time of our interview. Or close to it. Sooooo, yours truly figured that the only solution was to create a special show just for Kim. Hence, our two hour "Hybrid Jazz" on Wednesday!
Gracious, there's a LOT going on with Kim since we last spoke. And he'll fill you in on ALL of it. A beautiful wife, a new life, a 25 year anniversary in the music business, a CD dropping next month - and a terrific event planned at one of our popular venues in the region. I TOLD you!
Kim's used to this excitement, though. Of course he is - this is the consummate saxophonist who has had four # 1 albums, more than a dozen # 1 singles, and plays to packed and appreciative houses wherever he goes. He was raised in Maryland - and is considered a beloved "Hometown Hero" in this state. Although he lives in Texas now, he finds time to return to his roots whenever possible.
Get ready for the energy that you'll hear when Kim visits - you've been given a lot of reasons as to why - but let's get specific about this upcoming musical project. Called "Silver Soul", it's Kim at his best - and he has fantastic help to deliver the message. The golden throated magic of Eric Roberson, the beautifully youthful exhuberance of Zendaya, and the romantic partnership of Kim's lovely wife, Dana Pope - it's all wrapped up with a velvet bow - and given an extra touch by one of Kim's exquisite daughters as musical accompaniment. NOW you know why this visit from our friend is important. Because it's all about FAMILY :)
The fun at one - Kim joins us at two p.m. on 8/20!
One woman with one challenge to make changes against cyber crimes. Barbara Farris the first woman ever, to agree with the destruction of her own name and reputation. Barbara spent several years traveling threw many States and Cities to prove how the internet characterizes a person. Barbara proves how social media and google have become a weapon to destroy many lives.

Barbara, is more than just a hero to some, she is forever remembered for saving the lives of many from the hands of an abusers.

The organization is called FEMA, which stands for the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Originally conceived in the Richard Nixon Administration, it was refined by President Jimmy Carter and given teeth in the Ronald Reagan and the George Bush I and II Administrations. Now President Barak Obama has taken it to a whole new level.
The first targets in any FEMA emergency would be Hispanics and Blacks, the FEMA orders call for them to be rounded up and detained. Next is Tax protesters, demonstrators against government military intervention outside U.S. borders, and people who maintain weapons in their homes are also targets. Operation Trojan Horse is a program designed to learn the identity of potential opponents to martial law. The program lures potential protesters into public forums, conducted by a military "hero" or spiritual leader of the people who advocates survival training. The list of names gathered at such meetings and rallies are computerized and then targeted in case of an emergency.
It's such a privilege to have the friendship of Norman Woods - who is also known by his Jazz Poet moniker. He has changed it a few times but this current name will stick (I'm convinced!) N-Side The Healer seems right. Especially when you get to know Norman :) From the San Francisco Bay area, he is also a screenwriter and a music publisher. And has had epiphanies in his life that beg to be shared. Like homelessness. And true psychological challenges. In his poetry, N-Side shares those struggles as well as his triumphs. He asks questions - and sometimes he answers them himself. But he wants US to think. Way beneath the surface. Norman's not much for "surface." When you've been on the street, you get to see people at their best and worst. He has never forgot that lesson or any other that he has learned. Hear it for yourself via "Living in the Poetry Hotel" - we'll hear three tracks from this latest project by our beloved friend.
Kim Waters joins us on 8/20! This immensely popular saxophonist is celebrating 25 years of giving us joy - that instrument has produced four # 1 albums and more than a dozen # 1 singles. Kim is from Maryland and folks in the state can tell you - he's a "Hometown Hero!" And it's terrific to know that he returning to this region for a special date at The Birchmere in Alexandria, Virginia. Here's the reason why: Kim has a new CD on the way! Called "Silver Soul", it's full of original music - our "hero" wrote ten of the twelve tracks :) Sharing the immensely warm vibe on the album: Kim's talented wife, Dana Pope, as well as Eric Roberson and the teen actress/singer, Zendaya. We'll hear classic tracks from Kim and get the lowdown on his new & exciting life! C U in The Chat Room!
Since January of 2013, we have been ranking the very best independent wrestlers on a weekly basis. This is a KAYFABE list, meaning it is not centered around our opinion of who the best worker is on a weekly basis, but rather, more sports-oriented in the thought process of wins being the most important factor in getting ranked. Many various independent wrestling writers spend their time debating who the “best in the world” is while we simply seek to prove it via wins and losses.
In order to be ranked and to avoid personal biases, we have a group of voters from around the country who have 3 main criteria for voting (in a similar manner to ESPN.com’s NFL Power Rankings):
1. Win-loss record for the week & overall
2. Strength of opponents for the week
3. Overall public perception of the wrestler in question (i.e. Chris Hero has a stronger following than a regional independent wrestler who most people have never heard of)
We will be breaking down the Singles Top 10, discussing the Tag Team Top 5 and attempting to shed some light on the various wrestlers and companies that make up independent wrestling, so please sit back and enjoy the show!
