"The SAFE Program also aims to unite Black and poor communities by actively recruiting and hiring a number of our youth to help implement these much-needed services. Both drivers and escorts will be recruited from among the young and unemployed in our community, a strategythat at the same time will cut down the number of youth who would consider snatching a pocket book just to get a little change. In addition, drivers and escorts will be given extensive training in their respective fields, with both groups receiving intensive safety and FIRST-aid instruction.
State, federal, and local funding of the SAFE Program will also mean additional transportation-at least five vans with a seating capacity of twelve per sons each, plus the hiring ofa full-time program director and assistants. All totaled, the proposed annual budget for the SAFE Program comes to slightly less than two hundred thousand dollars ($195,530).
E orts to acquire funds for the SAFE Program have not yet been successful. A formal proposal has been presented before Oakland Model Cities, a federally funded poverty program, but that agency has made no commitment. A portion of Oakland's $4.5 million in revenue-sharing funds has been suggested for the SAFE Program, but the city administrators have been typically mum. Complete and adequate funding for the SAFE Program was, in fact, an integral part ofthe Seale-Brown Fourteen-Point Program to Rebuild Oakland in the 1973 campaign and, far from being abandoned, it will be included in initiatives and referendums.
The SAFE funding proposal, like the program itself, is an argument for our protection instead of our abuse by public service agencies, which theoreti cally function on our behalf. SAFE is a simple but basic program designed to help and secure the lives of a very important yet often forgotten segment of our communities: the older people." HUEY P. NEWTON
We'll share stories about some of the Underground Railroad and a Destination Spotlight will shine on the Faukland Islands and Romania.
The City of Norfolk, Virginia is an important 400-year-old port city and home to the largest naval base in the world. But, surprisingly as a southern mid-Atlantic city, Norfolk also played a crucial role in the Underground Railroad as one of the last port stops on the road to freedom north. Much of this history is now being shared through Norfolk's self-guided Waterways to Freedom Tour that our guest, Dr. Cassandra Newby-Alexander from Norfolk State University helped to create.
Historian and author Debra Sandoe McCauslin has deep roots in Gettysburg and Adams County, Pennsylvania. We learned about her family history and, in our car ride with her along the Underground Railroad, Debra brought to life the voices of some fugitive slaves and the Quakers who helped them.
Lewiston, New York was the final stop for runaway slaves from the South who sought to cross the border into Canada to freedom. Once slaves reached Lewiston, locals helped them cross the Niagara River by boat or by foot when the river was frozen.
After the War of 1812, Canada's reputation as a safe haven for fugitive slaves grew because of the development of settlements like the Southern Ontario farming community of Buxton, formerly the Elgin Settlement. Buxton was one of four planned settlements for former and runaway slaves and its founder, Reverend William King, a white man, fought other white settlers to establish the area.
Let truth guide you in these last days of the American dream. Let truth set you free as you follow the lead of the Holy Spirit who imparts revelation to the truth that Jesus brought into the earth.
Open your eyes to the reality of the upcoming engineered crisis that will hit the nation. A grand catastrophe is on the menu being cooked up and served by the global elite. Become aware of the Masonic ties belonging to the Oligarchy running things around the world. Wake up America and nations of the earth, for the great population control machine is up and running.
There is a special word of encouragement to the remnant saints living at this time at the end of this broadcast. Stay tuned and tell a friend.
SENIORS AGAINST A FEARFUL ENVIRONMENT
"Seniors Against a Fearful Environment (SAFE), a nonprofit corporation, was begun by the Black Panther Party at the request of a group of senior citizens for the purpose of preventing muggings and attacks upon the elderly, particularlywhen they go out to cash their meager social security or pension checks. Prior to approaching the Black Panther Party, the seniors had gone to the Oakland Police Department to request protection. There the seniors were told, to their dismay and outrage, that they "should walk close to the curb" in the future. Mrs. Van Frank, founder of the East Bay Legislative Council of Senior Citizens and the state of California's Outstanding Senior Citizen for 1971, commenting on the dangers experienced by the senior citi zens, has remarked: "The fear engendered among us old people by these mug gings almost makes us prisoners in our own homes."
A section of a recent funding proposal for the SAFE Program substantiates these claims. A comparative crime study was done over a period of six weeks (August 21 to October 1, 1972) and details conclusively that the age of the victim does bear a de nite relationship to the type ofo ense committed. Ofthe com bined total of 249 victims of strong-arm robbery and purse-snatching, 48 per cent ofthe victims (118) were overthe age of y. During this same period, only 13 percent of complainants in armed robbery cases fell into the senior citizen category. The conclusion, then, is that an elderly person is more likely to be physically attacked, whereas the younger, more agile person, who is more able to a defend his- or herself, will more likely be the victim of an armed assault. The fact has also been established that 33 percent of all crimes committed in the city of Oakland are committed against senior citizens."

Hiya doin' folks!! I've got a few things to stress tonight, propbably because I really don't understand why some of these politicians... not that I really have much of a grip on them to begin with, but some of the things that they're coming up with now really makes the mind reel...and what does a SuperBowl halftime performance by the one and only Beyonce have to do with politics? Well tune in and let's sort through the political mud for a bit, shall we?

Be sure to tell your family and friends that God is doing great thing and we would like for them to be apart of the wonderful blessings.
Thanks so much for listening and may the Lord Bless you real God!
A recent Motley Fool essay by Morgan Housel raises a question we have asked many times before: Why Does Pessimism Sound So Smart? (Especially when things are so good.)
Housel suggests several possible reasons:
1. Optimism appears oblivious to risks, so by default pessimism looks more intelligent.
2. Pessimism shows that not everything is moving in the right direction, which helps you rationalize the personal shortcomings we all have.
3. Pessimism requires action, whereas optimism means staying the course.
4. Optimism sounds like a sales pitch, while pessimism sounds like someone trying to help you.
5. Pessimists extrapolate present trends without accounting for how reliably markets adapt.
Generally, pessimism benefits from being both more serious than optimism and way cooler.
But that doesn't mean it's the right way to look at things!
Hosts Phil Bowermaster and stephen Gordon provide numerous examples of how the pessimists get it wrong time after time, and why optimism is the most realistic and, yes, serious way to approach the world.

John and Doug delve into the mess Europe is in by letting imigrant Muslims into their country without vetting. The leaders are not leading and the inmates are running the asylum! Hour two, they get into this love fest between young people and Bernie Sanders. Socialism vs Capitalism. Why the Democrats Presidential canidates in America are one in the same, leaving most Democrats to hold their nose pulling the lever OR maybe, this is where the Republicans will gain those "Reagan Democrats" that just can not vote for Socialism or a criminal. The Republicans really have choice, including two LEGAL immigrants running for President. They also have two good canidates that are Conservative. The young people getting most of their stuff for "free" are just as content to keep recieving "free" stuff and they think Bernie can deliver. Either way, John and Doug will tell it like it is, explaining why it is NOT a good idea to allow Muslim Immigrants into the US without triple vetting and why we should not persue Socialism at all.
