My friend Kasem joins for a tender, deeply personal conversation about his lifelong dance with the mystic. From a childhood rooted in the Missionary Baptist church to his last 13 years as a practicing buddhist, Kasem has been following the radical meme of self-discovery. We talk about everything from putting Jesus back in context and learning to examine the nature of reality, to the “double dutch” of code switching and navigating the American Dream as the child of immigrants.

SuperPsyched with Dr. Adam Dorsay
Once upon a time, there was a boy, the son of a pimp and whose mother who used to work for that pimp as a prostitute. Since he was born in 1971, his parents' union would have been a crime just four years earlier because his father was black and his mother white. Yes, there were horrible, racist laws in place until 1967 that attempted to prevent such interracial unions. He was raised at times by his mother, sometimes by another non-parent adult, and sometimes on his own as a mere child caring for his own siblings. One of 23 siblings, he had a rough childhood full of traumas and challenges that probably most of my listeners have never experienced. He would a GED and his formal education would stop there. Can you see him in your mind's eye? Where do you imagine he is today? I can tell you that he imagined he'd be dead by 25. Instead, he's the CEO of one of the best businesses in America and was named Ernst & Young's Entrepreneur of the Year for 2022. It was an honor to connect with JeVon McCormick (https://jevonmccormick.com/), CEO of Scribe Media, a multimillion-dollar company ranked #1 for corporate culture by Entrepreneur Magazine. He's also the author of two books I devoured in record time. The first, his management book called Modern Leader and the second, his autobiography, I Got There: How a Mixed-Race Kid Overcame Racism, Poverty, and Abuse to Arrive at the American Dream. I loved both books, and so have thousands of readers including retired Navy Seal turned ultra-athlete and bestselling author, David Goggins, who wrote the foreword for Modern Leader. In our interview, JeVon generously and openly shares his story as well as his take on leadership that has made him one of the top leaders in business today. You'll get his take on what businesses need to do to grow to their fullest potential while doing what is right for society. So, listen in as JeVon shares about where he came from and what it takes to be a modern leader. Book Links: I Got There: https://tinyurl.com/33faevtw Modern Leader: https://tinyurl.com/4kknnmfu

It's Monday, March 13th, A.D. 2023. This is The Worldview in 5 Minutes heard at www.TheWorldview.com. I'm Adam McManus. By Adam McManus (Adam@TheWorldview.com) Nigerians kill Kaduna pastor's son and abduct pastor's wife Last Friday, gunmen suspected to be bandits killed the son of a village pastor and abducted his wife, along with three others, in an attack in Nigeria's Kaduna State, reports The Christian Post. Revelation 21:8 says that all murderers will be punished “in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.” The Nigerian government continues to be criticized for its inability to curb the rising spate of murders in the region. Christian rights groups have warned for years about the deteriorating religious freedom conditions in Nigeria amid the rise of terror groups like Boko Haram and the Islamic State in the northeast. Advocates have also warned about an increase in deadly violence against predominantly Christian communities committed by radical Muslim herders in the farming-rich Middle Belt states as the country deals with desertification and erosion of natural resources. Disturbingly, last month, Biden's State Department reaffirmed its decision to remove Nigeria from its list of countries of particular concern for religious freedom violations after conducting an allegedly “careful review” following objections from Nigerian Christians, human rights groups, and members of Congress. More than 30 high profile Russians have died since Ukraine invasion Dozens of high profile Russian figures have died since Vladimir Putin launched his bloody war in Ukraine over a year ago -- with many in odd circumstances, such as sudden "suicides" and falls from windows, reports The U.S. Sun recently and The Atlantic last December. For example, Sergey Grishin, the so-called "Scarface" oligarch who sold Meghan and Harry their California mansion, died this week from sepsis after criticizing Putin. Meanwhile, Russian scientist Andrey Botikov, who created the "Sputnik V" vaccine , was strangled with a belt in his apartment last week. Both men were two of the 30 high profile deaths of people linked to Mad Vlad. Jon Sweet, a retired US Army Military Intelligence Officer, described Putin as running a "modern-day KGB version of Murder Inc." Biden eager to fund more cross-gender surgeries for veterans President Joe Biden's new 2024 budget plan, released on Thursday, proposes to funnel some of the $137.9 billion discretionary budget for the Department of Veterans Affairs into mutilating surgeries for America's veterans, reports LifeSiteNews.com. The Biden administration is ignoring new research into the use of cross-sex hormones. Last month, the American College of Cardiology revealed studies that showed that “people with gender dysphoria taking hormone replacements as part of gender affirmation therapy face a substantially increased risk of serious cardiac events, including stroke, heart attack and pulmonary embolism.” Reports of sexual assault at military academies shot up 18% Reported incidents of sexual assault at U.S. military academies jumped 18% during the 2021-2022 school year compared to the year prior, reports The Associated Press. Nearly one in five female cadets at the Army, Navy and Air Force academies said they experienced unwanted sexual contact in the most recent school year, according to the annual report. The number of estimated instances of sexual harassment also grew to 3,939 in the 2021-2022 school year, including more than half of women and one-fifth of men. In a memo to academy administrators, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin wrote that the service academies “observed an alarming increase in the estimated prevalence of sexual assault, sexual harassment, and other concerning behaviors. These corrosive behaviors require your immediate attention.” Vivek Ramaswamy announces anti-woke presidential bid Vivek Ramaswamy might not have a background in politics, but that didn't stop him from becoming one of the first candidates to announce their run for the GOP presidential nomination in 2024, reports BusinessInsider.com. The biotech millionaire, who was once the CEO of Roivant, will likely struggle for exposure in the predicted crowded field for the Republican nomination, but his past shows he isn't afraid of a challenge. Ramaswamy is the son of immigrants from India and an overachiever at Harvard. Listen as he describes the problem in America today. RAMASWAMY: “We're in the middle of a national identity crisis. Faith, patriotism, and hard work have disappeared -- only to be replaced by new secular religions like COVID-ism, climate-ism, and gender ideology. We hunger to be part of something bigger than ourselves. Yet we cannot even answer the question of what it means to be an American. “Today, the woke Left preys on that vacuum. They tell you that your race, your gender, and your sexual orientation, govern who you are, what you can achieve, and what you're allowed to think. This is psychological slavery, and that has created a new culture of fear in our country that has completely replaced our culture of free speech in America. And that is why today, I am announcing my run for President of the United States.” To be sure, Ramaswamy is a longshot for the GOP nomination, but the conservative firebrand says he has big plans to start a "cultural movement." Listen. RAMASWAMY: “This isn't just a political campaign. This is a cultural movement to create a new American Dream for the next generation.” Learn more at his website Vivek2024.com.

The team led by researchers at the University of Cambridge showed how one in ten early deaths could be prevented if everyone managed to reach the threshold of 75 minutes per week of moderate-intensity physical activity. The study demonstrated that this would be sufficient to lower the risk of heart disease and stroke–the leading causes of death globally—as well as a number of cancers. The conclusions were drawn when the Medical Research Council Epidemiology Unit at the University of Cambridge looked at results reported in 196 peer-reviewed articles covering more than 30 million participants. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 asks, “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So, glorify God in your body.” Close And that's The Worldview on this Monday, March 13th in the year of our Lord 2023.

This show is made possible by you! To become a sustaining member go to LauraFlanders.org/donate Thank you for your continued support!Laura and guest, Abigail Disney, ask how long can corporations sustain the “American Dream” at the expense of their workers. Is the American Dream dead? While most Americans are earning less than their parents and economic mobility is on the decline, the median net worth of the top 10 billionaires in the world has nearly tripled over the last decade. Abigail Disney, the granddaughter of Roy Disney, one of the founders of Disney, discovered that some employees were earning one two-thousandth of the earnings of CEO Bob Iger. She wrote to Iger, testified in Congress and ultimately made a film, “The American Dream and Other Fairy Tales.” Abigail underscores the need to tax the top 1%, speaks out against corporate greed and calls out the policies and values that created such gaping inequality at Disney and across the business world. Abigail Disney is an Emmy-winning documentary filmmaker, and an activist. The film, co-directed with Kathleen Hughes is available for streaming now. “There was a woman who played Winnie the Pooh for many years . . . six days a week, who died in her car. That was really a galvanizing moment for a lot of the folks that I spoke to, because the wrongness of this was all concentrated in this one moment.” - Abigail Disney“Absent collective bargaining, we are all subject to the tender mercies of Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos. Collective bargaining is the only way workers have to democratically represent their own interests in the workplace.” - Abigail DisneyGuest: Abigail Disney, Documentary Filmmaker & Social Activist; Co-Director & Producer, The American Dream & Other Fairy Tales; Founder Fork Films; Producer & Host "All Ears" Full Show Notes are located HERE.

The Rich Zeoli Show- Full Episode (03/13/2023): 3:05pm- Following the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank, the Treasury Department, the Federal Reserve, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation announced they will guarantee all customer deposits—even those exceeding the FDIC's standard $250,000 per depositor guarantee. According to The Wall Street Journal, “[a] senior Treasury official said the steps didn't constitute a bailout because stock and bondholders in SVB and Signature wouldn't be protected.” Silicon Valley Bank had been the 16th largest bank in America with an estimated $175 billion in deposits, but after losing billions investing in long-term assets, customers attempted to withdraw an estimated $42 billion in deposits resulting in the bank's ultimate collapse. Read more about SVB's collapse here: https://www.wsj.com/articles/federal-reserve-rolls-out-emergency-measures-to-prevent-banking-crisis-ba4d7f98 3:30pm- Reason's Elizabeth Nolan Brown critiques the U.S. government's decision to guarantee all deposits with no limit—writing, “[f]or one thing, banks are themselves taxpayers. And in situations like this, the many institutions who act responsibly must bear the burden of bank fees in order to inoculate less responsible actors. Besides, these fees assessed on banks don't exist in a vacuum that only burdens big businesses; banks pass on the costs of regulatory compliance to customers in a number of ways. So, the idea that the government's bailout funds come from some sort of magical pool of consequence-free money is silly.” You can read Brown's editorial here: https://reason.com/2023/03/13/everyone-is-learning-the-wrong-lessons-from-the-silicon-valley-bank-collapse/ 3:40pm- Who is to blame for the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank? On Monday, President Joe Biden blamed the Trump Administration for “rolling back” the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, a federal law designed to regulate the nation's financial services industry. However, The New York Post notes that Barney Frank—the former Congressman for whom the bill is named—was a member of the Board of Directors at Signature Bank when it collapsed over the weekend. 4:00pm- While appearing on Fox News with Maria Bartiromo, Congressman James Comer (R-KY) suggested that Silicon Valley Bank's “quest for ESG [Environment, Social, and Governance] policies” may have played a role in its collapse. 4:10pm- On Monday, President Joe Biden called the U.S. banking system “safe” and credited his administration's decisions—specifically guaranteeing all deposits at Silicon Valley Bank—for avoiding the contagion-like collapse of multiple banks. But didn't the Federal Reserve ultimately decide to bailout depositors? 4:30pm- During her acceptance speech at Sunday's 95th Annual Academy Awards, Best Actress in a Leading Role Michelle Yeoh took a shot at CNN's Don Lemon for his comments about women of a certain age being “past their prime.” 4:45pm- Dr. EJ Antoni—Research Fellow for Regional Economics in the Center for Data Analysis at The Heritage Foundation—joins The Rich Zeoli Show to explain the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank. Dr. Antoni debunks the Biden Administration's narrative that the Treasury Department, the Federal Reserve, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation are not bailing out depositors with taxpayer dollars. Will the decision to bailout SVB's “gross fiscal mismanagement” encourage other banks to take on risky investments, operating under the assumption that if things go wrong the federal government will step in and save the day? 5:00pm- The Drive at 5: Dave McCormick—Veteran and former Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania—joins The Rich Zeoli Show to discuss his new book, “Superpower in Peril: A Battle Plan to Renew America.” How do we decouple from China and assure American hegemony? PLUS is McCormick planning to challenge three-term Senator Bob Casey Jr. (D-PA) in 2024?

Read more about Victor Fiorillo's editorial here:https://www.phillymag.com/news/2023/03/10/steve-keeley-fox-29/ 6:05pm- Andy Bloom—President of Andy Bloom Communications—joins The Rich Zeoli Show to discuss his latest editorial at Broad + Liberty, “Biden Plays the Blame Game.” Bloom documents the Biden Administration's instance to fault Donald Trump for everything that goes wrong. Bloom writes, “Biden has consistently blamed Trump for Covid deaths…Although largely ignored now, the Afghanistan withdrawal is one of Biden's biggest and deadliest disasters. At the time, Biden explained it was Trump's fault for making a deal with the Taliban. For some reason, THIS was the one Trump policy Biden was bound to and couldn't change. Although the last troops withdrew after the negotiated date, Biden still blamed Trump…When the Biden administration had to acknowledge that a Chinese spy balloon had penetrated U.S. airspace, they were quick to add that three prior incidents happened when Trump was president.” You can read Bloom's article here: https://broadandliberty.com/2023/03/09/andy-bloom-biden-plays-the-blame-game/ 6:30pm- While appearing on Fox News with Larry Kudlow, former Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers Kevin Hassett revealed that buyers were willing to “step in” and purchase Silicon Valley Bank. 6:35pm- While speaking with Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) on ABC''s This Week, host Martha Raddatz baselessly claimed the Trump Administration was responsible for the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank. 6:45pm- Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, and MSNBC Commentator Jen Psaki have all publicly considered the idea of censoring Fox News.

How Far Do You Want to Go?: Lessons from a Common-Sense Billionaire by John Catsimatidis Publishers Weekly Bestseller Billionaire entrepreneur John Catsimatidis, owner and CEO of the Red Apple Group, reveals how his instincts and common sense have propelled him to massive business success in this detailed account of an incredible rags-to-riches story. Born on the small Greek island of Nisyros, John Catsimatidis immigrated to the States with his family and quickly became a true New Yorker, raised in Harlem. He went to school by day and worked in a small grocery store by night to help his parents pay the bills until, just eight credits short of graduating from New York University, he opted to work in the grocery business full-time. Today, that grocery business has become the Red Apple Group, a conglomerate with interests in energy, real estate, aviation, baseball, entertainment, and media, including the iconic radio station WABC, where John hosts leading figures in government, politics, business, and economics. As Catsimatidis has discovered, the American Dream doesn't come with an instruction manual—or even a sign to let you know when you've arrived at the finish line. How Far Do You Want to Go? tells Catsimatidis's dynamic story, from his beginnings in the grocery business to entering the political arena, including a New York City mayoral campaign. He's tried his hand at nearly everything, but he's far from finished with his adventures. Now, he offers readers a glimpse into the wisdom he's gained—and the excitement he has for what the future holds in store. ABOUT THE AUTHOR John Catsimatidis was born on the Greek Island of Nisyros in 1948 and 6 months later his parents emigrated to New York City in search of a better life. During his senior year at NYU, with just 8 credits remaining, John dropped out to work in the grocery business full-time. By his 25th birthday he was already a success with 10 Red Apple Supermarkets scattered along Broadway on Manhattan's Upper Westside.
