DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, HONOR CRIMES, AND IMMIGRANT WOMEN: THE COMMON FACTOR
Domestic violence in the US, honor crimes in those “other” countries: are they really so different? And what can this mean for women who immigrate to the US and have experienced both? What are the connections, what are the commonalities, and what are the realities for women of all cultures when it comes to victimization by intimate partners?
Jessica Winegar says the 18,000 women killed by abusers in the US between 2003 and 2014 are no different from the women killed in the Middle East or South Asia. She is the Harold H. and Virginia Anderson Chair in Anthropology at Northwestern University. Her research specialization is in the Middle East, and she has written widely on issues of gender, Islam, and global politics. Penny Venetis is Executive Vice President and Legal Director of Legal Momentum and as Clinical Professor of Law, and Director of the International Human Rights Clinic, at Rutgers, she specialized in civil rights and international human rights impact litigation. She instituted women’s rights projects in the Rutgers Law School clinics, developed human trafficking advocacy projects, and recruited and supervised pro bono attorneys from major law firms to work on the Clinic’s landmark cases.
Join us as we discuss domestic violence, honor crimes, cultural similarities and differences, and the realities for women who are victimized.

Mrs. Cruz says Ted Cruz is an Immigrant. LOL... Uh Oh
The lowest paying jobs are often filled by recent immigrants - Philipinos, Mexicans - jobs such as hotel cleaning staff, or janitorial workers in big office buildings, jobs that don't require much conversation, and therefore it doesnt really matter if the employee doesnt speak much English. Some may say it looks like immigrants are taking away jobs from people who have been long time citizens and can't find employment. But are these jobs that really pay a living wage? And if a person can't speak the language, how do they protect themselves from exploitation by employers, who may assign them long hours, little pay and no benefits? Are immigrants being abused by corporate industries? Is the government a willing participant in the trafficking of human laborers in a modern day slave system? Our guest today Nerissa Allegretti of the group NAFCON discusses the shocking truth about immigrant workers.

Hillary Clinton wants to kill coal families and those who work in all other fossil fuel fields. The Clintons have been devastating working families in Appalachia for decades!

I am a Whistleblower who exposed Fraud in a Federal Agency.
Due to the knowledge and exposure, I received harassment in my workplace.
Upon taking my stand, I was continually harrassed and bullied, although I consistently reported this behavior.
However, when the harassment and bullying became unbearable, I filed a complaint (September 2010).
Overtime, the harassment and bullying went unaddressed and resulted in an ASSAULT, against me, in my workplace.
What I've learned from this whole experience...
The current complaint system is being utilized to "Out" Whistleblowers and/or other employees who file complaints in their respective Federal Agency.
This current utilization of the complaint system is putting Whistleblowers and complaint filers at great risk of Bullying, harassment, violence, and undocumented retaliation, while exposing Fraud, Waste & Abuse.
Although it happens more often than people know, cases are waited out for long periods of time, until Complainants are completely broke and/or completely broken.
As a Federal Employee, a Veteran, and as a Mother...
It is only right to fight against injustice, to help make the system fair and balanced for everyone!
SPECIAL GUEST: James O Keefe Of Project Veritas will be discussing Common Core and it's failure during the 8am hour!!
We bring you raw news with cutting edge dialogue between two Conservative American Citizens. We believe in American Exceptionalism, dreams, freedom and liberty. We believe corruption, deceit and lawlessness are destroying the foundation of the nation, deminishing our role in the world as a Super Power, and promoter of Freedom and Liberty. We need to strip away the corruption, deceit and lawlessness within America, just as a recycler strips away the old paint, rust from a piece of steel or a piece of furniture exposing the good metal / good wood, we must do the same, expose Americas exceptionalism. The founding fathers were not perfect men, they were exceptional men, promoting a selfless ideology, forming the foundation for Americas rise as a world Super Power. We desire the destruction of political correctness, lawlessness, and corruption within the 10 square miles of Evil, Washington D.C.
We want politicians to push back on illegal immigration, gay marriage, racial warfare, social warfare and economic class warfare.
We desire Freedom and Liberty to be espused from all political dialogue, citizens dreaming of legacies and independence from government over-reach / oversight. Thank you for spending a few hours a week with us.

from liverpool to australia, to phoenix, az, one man talks about his journey as an immigrant (and his recent union to his wife, who is also on an immigration journey).
we are a nation of citizens who began as immigrants, and we all have stories to share. these are the stories that give this nation character.
For imigrant Muslim children, the hostility created by current political rhetoric can be overwhelming, particularly if teachers at school are insensitive. There is the now famous case of the intelligent young Muslim student who built a clock, took it to school to show his science teacher and was arrested. She was afraid he had built a bomb. Really? African American children have been mistreated in schools for over a century, made to sit in the back of the class, overly punished and suspended, so bad treatment by teachers and principals is nothing new; but to have administrators fear your child as a terrorist is a whole different twist when it comes to irrational prejudice. How do parents help their children cope with sometimes not so thinly veiled hostility based on religious prejudice? Our guests today, Imam Azam Akram and his wife Faiza discuss how their work in the South Side community of Chicago helps remove barriers of racial and religious prejudice, and how they prepare their elementary aged children to cope with society's atttudes toward immigrant Muslims.

Special Guest Janell Hobson Joins Agunda Okeyo for Black Women in Conversation: What About Black Women In the Presidential Debates.
Last week in Brooklyn, at a Hillary Clinton Town Hall around the corner from Black Women's Blueprint in Crown Heights, Executive Director, Farah Tanis was present. Tanis, was among the few activists and community leaders allowed backstage where she engaged the presidential candidate after listening to a one hour speech where she said nothing about violence against women and girls.
Farah: Hillary I would have really liked to hear more about violence against women. We have to talk about that.
Hillary: Yes we do. We have to end it.
Farah: Yes in the most vulnerable communities (meaning POC + LGBTQ + immigrant + disabled, etc.)
Hillary: It's an important issue. It's criminal not cultural.
Farah: It's both.
Hillary: Yes that's right, it is!
While our democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders discusses civil rights and Hillary Clinton discusses women's rights within the context of critical issues like a woman's right to choose and equal pay, they both miss the mark on Black women. A formidable movement against campus sexual assault and rape in Black communities exists and it is led by Black women. Black women are also making the connections between the cyclical relationship between poverty, criminal justice and the heightened vulnerability of all women, and particularly women color to gender-violence. These are both civil rights and women's rights issues.
Issues critical to Black/African American women should rise today in the Democratic presidential debates, especially in light of the historic Congressional Caucus on Black Women and Girls launched this month and the The Black Women’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission convening from April 28 to May 1, 2016.
