THURSDAY MARCH 31, 2011 12:01 AM (MT) This is it, our last show on XM 158 tonight. In the first hour we'll be joined by Jerry Corsi, we'll talk with Peter Chowka in the 2nd hour, and after that it's whatever you want to discuss. Looking forward to it.
The idea that your most vital identity information is on someone's laptop somewhere, and that regard for it is so tenuous that it can inadvertently disappear is bad enough. The government does it routinely. Private businesses occasionally do too. But only BP could do it and then not tell the 13,000 people whose identities were breached, for almost a month. Up to their usual standards, no doubt.
The EPA says radiation has been found in US milk. But none to worry.The governor of Pennsylvania says radio active iodine is 3300% above federal drinking water standard in rain water there. But none to worry. Right. And no matter what Japan is saying, it isn't good news. But neither is word that there are nuclear bombs hidden throughout the US.
Did you hear the House voted to kill Obama's signature bill that was suppsed to help homeowners avoid foreclosure? You were probably too busy noticing the missing Bronx Zoo cobra's tweets. Actually this is pretty funny.
MARCH 31, 2011 12:01 AM (MT) Obama really needs new writers-- or maybe he needs a course in extemporaneous speaking. Here's an account from his Univision appearance which probably has all sides disappointed. And here's the difference between his Libya speech and the facts.
We'll talk with Dr. Sky tonight at 7 PT / 10 ET.
MARCH 30, 2011 UPDATE: Due to bandwidth restrictions, not lack of interest, there's no way that Sirius can add me to their lineup immediately after the show leaves XM 158 tomorrow night. But that said, listener feedback is always a good thing. Since many of you have asked if there was a way to email SiriusXM to let them know you'd like to hear my show on one of their channels, I've hunted around and found what I think is the right address. Click here. (And don't forget, you can check for updates on where I'll be by clicking on the link above this post.)
TUESDAY MARCH 29, 2011 12:01 AM (MT) We talked with Dave Speace who has written "Janka Festinger's Moments of Happiness" (click on it for a good price from Amazon). Janka was his mother, a holocaust survivor who penned a narrative of what happened, when it happened. While there are many long after the fact recollections, it's rare to have a first hand account when it was so fresh in her mind, just after liberation. The lessons of what a strong centralized government can become should not be lost on any of us, nor should human nature's darker side. The only hope is with the kind of limited government our forefathers envisioned when they wrote the constitution. Too bad it's slipped so far away from us now.
Did you catch Obama's address on Libya last night. Here's the text. Now what exactly gave outsiders the right to freeze Qaddafi's money, the $33 billion (that we admit-- how much really, who knows?).... and maybe you can explain the part about Obama saying he consulted congress about this beforehand. Why doesn't congress know about that? I could go on and on, but maybe this explains it: the concept that a country's sovereignty is at the will of the international community. It's beyond a dangerous premise, it's greasing the skids for a complete global takeover.
Maybe Obama is hoping you're too dumb to know what he said (and didn't say) in his speech. And maybe he's trying to make sure you'll be dumber in the future: he thinks too much testing makes education boring. Think perhaps the NEA and AFT are in control here? Obama wants to cut out most of the testing and change (which really means "lower") the standards he set. The ones that our public schools can't meet.
SATURDAY MARCH 26, 2011 12:01 AM (MT) Trivia answers and Bumper Stumpers are up under Trivia and Music to your left. I'll be back Monday for the final four shows on XM 158. Talk to you after the weekend.
FRIDAY MARCH 25, 2011 12:01 AM (MT) 3 big hours of Friday Night Trivia tonight-- last one on this show. So do call. We'll be ready and waitin' at 7 PM (PT) / 10 PM (ET).
Got a few requests to reprint Kitty Werthmann's "Don't Let Freedom Slip Away." It's been on the website all along, but now you can find it easily here.
Accepting Obama's logic for why we're attacking Libya, ya gotta wonder why we haven't decimated North Korea, half of the Arab world right now, or our favorite trading partner, China, where dozens of well known lawyers have recently vanished-- among many activists who the country conveniently "disappears" without notice or explanation. No human rights here.
Japan halted a vaccine program due to the deaths of 4 babies. America uses the same vaccines and over 2,100 kids have died. But instead of warning mothers, our government and top docs say it's a coincidence. This is a shame. No wonder vaccine activists in Washington State are upset over a proposed new law which would require a doctors affidavit that the risks and benefits of vaccines were explained before a parent could opt out. (And just how long do you think those doctors would be licensed to practice?)
I've told you to use real soap (5 Star Soap is a good choice.) Hospitals in California used to use it. Now most of them use hand sanitizers. Do you think that has anything to do with this report showing drug-resistant bacteria is now common in hospitals there? Maybe it's coincidence too.
Outrage and lawsuits about "out of network" (non-contracting) doctors billing almost $60,000 for one ultra-sound, but it's exactly what happens when patients aren't part of the billing process. If you got a bill for tens of thousands of dollars for a $70 procedure, I doubt you'd take it calmly. Put the patients back in the loop, and this won't happen. (Obamacare, unfortunately does just the reverse.)
Ever notice those rapid fire delivery announcements about adverse reactions that you hear on every pharmaceutical commercial? Add "might turn you into a gay sex addict" to the list. This guy is not alone in that outcome. "Might become a sex-crazed transvestite" might be a problem too.
Exactly why is Kapiolani hospital keeping the letter Obama wrote a couple years ago saying it was his birthplace, under lock and key. What do they know? You've no doubt heard about Donald Trump asking Obama to show his birth certificate, on The VIew. One very valid point he raises-- the rest of us have people who remember them from kindergarten, grade school, high school, college. Obama has none of them. What's that about?
America's finances are among the worst in the industrialized world (of course this report is nothing compared to what will happen if the dollar does not remain the standard for world trade). Does it come as a surprise to you that the US has the most progessive income tax system in the world?
I'll say it again-- most Americans don't realize incandescent light bulbs are being phased out by the government. The same government that has an EPA which just created standards for mercury emission limits, and apparently failed to notice that it's a mercury-laden toxic waste area when you break one of those bulbs.
And you gotta wonder why Japan didn't feel the need to standardize their electric systems. Half on 60 hz, half on 50... which is fine until you need a lot of power quickly. Looks like their might be blackouts in Tokyo for a long time to come.... did you know there's only one survivor from the Chernobyl clean up effort. She's a nuclear engineer with advise for those in Japan: run away as quickly as possible.
I'll leave you with this. An Australian town has declared children to be a public hazard.
THURSDAY MARCH 24, 2011 12:01AM (MT) Beyond outrageous: One of the lawmakers most intent on passing Obamacare with its public option, is now asking for a waiver from it. Here's hypocrisy. And here's more from Rep. Michael Burgess MD who elucidates what I've contended-- Obamacare is designed to fail so it can be replaced with socialized medicine.
Meanwhile in Japan: A neutron beam was observed 13 times on the premises of the Fukushima plant. And not a small radioactive ray at that. But there's none to worry. RIght.... don't factor that residents have been told not to allow their babies to drink tap water. No problem. Remember Chernobyl? Elena Filatova made a now famous video riding through it on her motorcycle several years ago. Here's the website that has it.
Several in the business of earthquake prediction say the big one is going to hit soon. Actually we're passed the big date-- March 19th, but all give a window lasting til Saturday. Even the Russians concur. Is it a good time to mention their are 15 nuclear power plants on the New Madrid fault zone?
The Justice Department is suing a small Chicago suburb for not giving a new teacher a 19 day leave so she could partake in the Hajj. They say that's religious discrimination. I say we're in big trouble if this woman prevails.... meanwhile the senate is holding hearings on Muslim rights. I hope they're willing to look at both sides, and the Illinois case.
You've probably heard about the letter read into the record in the Arizona legislature, written by a substitute teacher, describing the behavior of illegals from Mexico, the predominant group in the junior high classes he taught. He says they're interested in becoming gang members, not in getting educated, and they disrespect America so much they won't stand for the pledge of allegiance because this is really their country and they're taking it back. So the first reaction from the Hispanic caucus was to ask for an apology because the letter wasn't real. Then the letter writer was found (easy to do, he printed his contact info on it). The next move was to say he wasn't a substitute teacher. Then his credentials were verified. So i was on to claiming he never taught in the schools in question. Eventually, it surfaced that indeed he had. Part of that cover up came from the school district, which is now saying, well yeah, he's real, he taught here, but the students say they didn't do what he's claiming. As if they would? The reaction has been more telling than the letter that caused it. Here's the latest.
The feds are making Omaha redo it's sewer system, but the city doesn't have the money. The mayor proposes a 10 cent federal tax on each roll of toilet paper sold. And some people are considering it. He got the idea from Oregon (of course) which defeated it (amazing, for them).
Ask any commercial pilot about bad airports, and it won't be long before Washington's Reagan-National comes up. It's notorious. So imagine the shock of the crews manning two big jets (American and United) when shortly after midnight, after being handed off to the controllers at the tower, no one responded. Nada. Silence. Short staffing caused the lone person on duty to fall asleep.
Thinking about buying a home? Maybe you want to wait another year. Here's why.
WEDNESDAY MARCH 23, 2011 1:30 AM (MT) You gotta read the current issue of Mad Magazine. "How Barack Obama stacks up to the other 42 presidents" is priceless. Sometimes you gotta laugh.
Other times you gotta cry, or at least wonder: 4,000 pictures of soldiers posing with civilians they murdered, and in some cases later maimed? Der Spiegal printed some Monday, and the army is apologizing. Commanders in Afghanistan realize that won't molify many, and are bracing for a riotous backlash.
Kucinich isn't alone in his agitation over Obama's bombing Libya. Most harmful to the president are his big supporters, like a handful of African American female legislators who share Kucinich's disgust. Here's who was on the conference call Saturday.
And things we didn't get around to fully discussing (but hopefully will tonight): Maybe water rights and self sufficiency are part of the Libya puzzle. Oil is obvious, but here's a different view. Not that some of Libya's neighbors are pleased with the water plan. Mali is particularly threatened (even though the country's leaders have sold out to Qadhaffi on this.) And let's say we oust Qadhaffi. Look who's in line to replace him.
Think unions are the problem? A former SEIU official thinks they're dead. He's got a bigger plan for toppling the government-- and he's proud of it.
TUESDAY MARCH 22, 2011 12:01 AM (MT) Our Nobel Peace Prize winning Obama has launched 118 missiles and dropped 40 bombs on Libya. That certainly doesn't jibe with his campaign rhetoric. At least George Bush asked congress before invading Iraq. (Not that it was a good idea, mind you, but hey, it's Bush we kinda knew what we were getting.) Lots of liberals complained Bush lied. Can't say that about Obama-- he didn't say a word to the legislative bodies. Some folks are upset about that. Others (like Kucinich) say Obama should be impeached. The Libertarians state the obvious: They hate us because we bomb them. (If you haven't been keeping up on the timeline, Wikipedia has a fine timeline/rundown.)
If you caught Obama's stated logic, that we had to go in there because Qadhafi was killing citizens, then I guess we're ready to bomb Yemen. Obama called the violence there "unacceptable".
Closer to home, Americans are worried about what Obama's costing them-- less in dollars than civil rights. And the bad news for him, are how upset independents are-- voters crucial to his reelection... Lots of people upset about Obamacare, but US Rep Michael Burgess, MD, is strongly suggesting the antidote can be found in defunding it now.
Bernard von NotHaus was convicted on charges he had his own currency going with the Liberty Dollars he minted and sold. That's interesting in light of Utah's action in passing an amendment making gold and silver legal tender. The house passed it, and the senate, and now it awaits the governor's signature. Will that cause a federal invasion? ...Speaking of invasions, Utah has also passed a law saying illegals there that haven't broken any laws are perfectly fine. The LDS church had a hand in this, for what should be obvious reasons (but if not, the article will lay it out for you.)
MONDAY MARCH 7, 2011 12:01 AM (MT) We'll be airing reruns the next two weeks. I'll try to update the stream nightly, but you can always download what you want to hear at MyStreamingServer.com. Here's the rundown:
Mon March 7 Walter Burien (CAFR)
Mon March 14 Glenn Sacks (Fathers & Families)
Back live March 21. Thanks for listening!
Oh, almost forgot to mention, if you are a beach music fan, Steve Jarrell from the Sons of the Beach, The Daddy-o on the Patio, is playin' your favorites every weekday 10-3 CT, on WSGI 1100. Click on the link and find the stream!
SATURDAY MARCH 5, 2011 12:01 AM (MT) Friday Night Trivia answers and Bumper Stumpers are up under Trivia and Music to your left. Before Monday I'll have the list of replayed shows you'll hear for next week and the week after. And we'll be back live on Monday March 21st.
FRIDAY MARCH 4, 2011 4:00 AM (MT) Three big hours of Friday Night Trivia tonight a 7 (PT) / 10 (ET). Call and win. Speaking of winning we've mailed out over 130 prize packages this week, so if you've been waitin' check your mailbox in a week or so. (Another similar batch to go out soon.)
If you're a Nitecap looking for the show we did last night about Herb Jepko, it's on the stream until tonight's show, or is downloadable at MyStreamingServer.com.
THURSDAY MARCH 3, 2011 12:01 AM (MT) Quick question: Who is responsible for the first national overnight radio call-in talk show? If you said Art Bell, you're close-- it was one of his inspirations: Herb Jepko. From 1964 through 1977, Herb ruled the airwaves with a very unlikely concept: The Nitecaps. (I wrote about him in my book, which if you haven't yet, you can order from NickajackPress but I digress.) We'll go down memory lane tonight with Dr. Joe Buchman, the creator of Nitecaps.net, a site honoring Herb.
I forgot to give you Jan Williams' email address. It's here. Jan is Steven B. Williams sister. His murder 5 years ago left her penniless (Steven handled her inheritance and it was stolen in the commission of the crime). She'd like to get to the trial next month (a trip from Tennessee to California). She may have found a ride, but if you do a dedicated run and can help, send her an email. She'd also like to get her possessions out of storage in New Jersey. If she doesn't do it this month, it may be beyond her means to do it at all. She's amassed the funds to pay for the back storage fees, but has little to nothing to pay to transport the contents. If you anticipate an empty load between New Jersey and Tennessee, email her with that info too. Thanks!
Good to talk with Walter Burien last night. Check out his CAFR1.com website. (One of yesterday's links details how much money Wisconsin is really sitting on-- over 123 billion.) Getting the word out about the trillions held by the government but not reported in various budgets (though it is available on the CAFR, the comprehensive annual financial report) will change the dialog. Here's a YouTube video of Oregon's Bruce Hanna introducing the CAFR to the legislature. You probably didn't hear about that in January-- and isn't it interesting that YouTube counts only 4,476 visitors. Watch it (and then check the counter). And the more you can interject info about CAFR amounts into discussions-- on the air, with politicians, even your neighbors, the better for all of us.
Horror of the day? The report of this SOB suffering from post traumatic stress disorder and looking for help after carrying out his bosses orders. His boss asked him to murder 100 healthy, beautiful dogs because tourism was down and they weren't needed. He did it-- and warning, get ready to lose it when you read how he did it. There's a special hell for him.
You may have heard of jury nullification-- the concept, dating back to the formation of our country of juries trying laws as a well as defendants. This guy passed out pamphlets in front of the court house and was arrested for jury tampering. What constitution? We have no constitution... More proof of that, the National ID card never left, and you're required to have one by May 11th. (It'll be your enhanced driver's license.)... UK foster families have only a qualified right to practicing Christianity but must promote homosexuality. What this article doesn't mention is that the court reasoning goes out the window when you realize Sharia law is an authorized practice in Great Britain.
WEDNESDAY MARCH 2, 2011 12:01 AM (MT) As promised, here's a link to the 2012 Olympic logo that Iran thinks spells "Zion" (maybe to the dyslexic)... Also, the link to the Animal Die-Offs story from January.
Me thinks public workers and their unions are incapable of taking the pulse of the American people. Most are outraged that their government counterparts earn, on average, $18,000 more a year than they do... 58% of registered democrats want the government to shut down (and 90% of registered republicans) according to this poll. The problem with public sector unions is they're bargaining, not against a boss with profit in mind, but a politician who will bend to their whims for contributions and votes.... Jefferson saw it all coming, but no one wanted to consider his anti-debt amendment.... then again it all may be academic when you realize how much money the government really has. That takes us back to Walter Burien's CAFR disclosures. Look at this.
Even in the private sector, emotions run high-- like in Southfield, a primarily middle class black neighborhood near Detroit, where folks who bought $250,000 homes a few years ago are put out that they're now living next to the riff raff who got their foreclosure bargains at pennies on the dollar (or rent them for even less). It's not just sentiment-- the neighborhood has turned ghetto. This will be a problem in a lot of places.
Rahm Emmanuel would be proud: Illinois' AG is demanding that police release the names of everyone in the state licensed to own a firearm. That's over a million folks whose whereabouts will be potentially threatened if this comes to pass.... 11 states now considering legislation that questions Obama's citizenship. )I'm for moving forward and enacting laws so it can never happen again.) ...With Obama you get the real riff raff-- like 3 former Monsanto execs in key government roles.
Meanwhile the Southern Poverty Law Center thinks World Net Daily deserves to be on a "hate groups" list. Their thinking clearly undermines their cause.... And ending with hypocrisy, Al 'keep the internet free' Franken now thinks it should be censored so that he movie industry won't be hurt. His illogic is here.
TUESDAY MARCH 1, 2011 12:01 AM (MT) We talked with Elizabeth Hutton, ordained minister, healer and life coach in the first hour. If you think there's nothing you can do about whatever position life finds you presently, you may be surprised. If you missed the hour, you can hear it on the replay or download it from MyStreamingServer.com. Elizabeth is also an intuitive consultant (think psychic, guardian angels and such), so she may be able to tell you more about what options you do have than you might realize. Call her at 209-840-1930 or email her here.
Imagine buying a residential lot among existing houses, starting to build your own only to be told by the EPA that you must immediately return the land to its original condition, or pay a fine of $32,750 a day. No hearing, no court action, just a bureaucratic letter. Imagine taking the case to court (9th circuit) and have them tell you that you've got to wait a few years and then you can spend over $200,000 to have the lands declared not a wetland, at which point you can apply to build your house. That's the story here.
British lawmakers said they wouldn't allow the NHS to withhold drugs to cancer patients --like the 54 year old woman they said was too sick to benefit-- that was 4 years ago, now she's climbing mountains (literally) because her mother had the money to pay for the drug (under the table so she wouldn't have been kicked out of health care entirely). Well guess what? They're still doing it.
Taking a page out of the NHS playbook, the same cancer drug in question (Avastin) which can prolong quality and quantity of life, is being de-listed by the FDA-- meaning your insurance company or medicare soon won't cover it. Got cancer? Go on and die. Welcome to Obamacare...
Exactly why Vermont wants to go single-payer would be a mystery if it weren't for all the liberal New Yorkers who infiltrated the state years ago... Maybe you can lower your medical costs. You've heard of cat scans, and lab work. Turns out a dog scan from a black lab might be as good a detector of bowel cancer as a colonoscopy.
So, the teachers' unions in Wisconsin (who are responsible collectively for 2/3rds of public school 8th graders being illiterate) aren't literate themselves. Check out this sign "Unions Our My Cup Of Tea". Took me a minute to realize this beautiful braintrust meant "are".)
Deputies threatened a family in Arizona with taking away their kids and throwing the parents in jail if they didn't submit to an unconstitutional, ungrounded search of their home. They appropriately refused. Now the deputies are asking a judge for immunity from prosecution. Send 'em all to jail!
February 2011 is here.
