On today's episode of The MeidasTouch Podcast, we have an incredible show about mostly despicable people. Ron DeSantis took credit for flying undocumented migrants into Martha's Vineyard and other locations around the United States in a stunt that is more than just grotesque, but likely illegal. Yes, that's right. The Republican Party have decided to become human traffickers. And that's not hyperbole. But if that wasn't bad enough, Republican Lindsey Graham just announced his plan for a federal abortion ban. When Republicans tell you who they are, believe them. But that's not all from this fascist circus. Mike Lindell (yes, the MyPillow guy) reportedly had his phone seized by the FBI as the investigation into Donald Trump's interference into the 2020 election continues to gain steam. But over in the world of hardworking, pro-democracy Americans, The White House just reached a tentative deal to avoid a railroad strike by siding with workers in a deal and celebrated the historic passage of the Inflation Reduction Act. Jordy and Brett also briefly share their experience attending a briefing in the Roosevelt Room with President Biden himself.

Wade decision that legalized abortion nationwide.A Brooklyn mother suspected of drowning her three young children at Coney Island Beach in Brooklyn, New York, on Monday, was struggling with mental health, was locked in a custody dispute with her ex-husband and facing eviction for $10,000 in unpaid rent.A journalist who has extensively covered the transgender debate recently revealed why the topic has so resonated, explaining "something inside ... snapped" when he learned about what was happening to children, and the "horror" immediately motivated him to action.More likely voters believe that the 2022 midterm elections are a referendum on President Joe Biden's agenda than they are about individual issues or candidates, according to a new poll.Subscribe to this Podcast Apple Podcasts Spotify Google Podcasts Overcast Get the Edifi App Download for iPhone Download for Android Subscribe to Our Newsletter Subscribe to the Freedom Post, delivered every Monday and Thursday Click here to get the top headlines delivered to your inbox every morning!

This is an election year. But the issues this year are not about Democrats and Republicans. The big issue is whether this nation has degenerated to a point of no return — a point where we risk destroying ourselves, before our enemies can destroy us. If there is one moment that symbolized our degeneration, it was when an enraged mob gathered in front of the Supreme Court and a leader of the United States Senate shouted threats against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, saying, “You won't know what hit you!” There have always been irresponsible demagogues. But there was once...Article Link
There was absolutely no one else on Earth with the stature, respect, influence, and as beloved as Queen Elizabeth 2nd. She was the last major figure left who had served in some capacity during World War 2. She had been on the thrown of Great Britain for 70 years. To put that into some perspective when she became the Monarch of England and the Commonwealth of nations, Harry Truman was President of the United States, Winston Churchill was residing at 10 Downing Street, and Joseph Stalin was the leader of the Soviet Union. In most of the World, only one in ten women worked outside the home, America had 48 States, Cary Grant was one of Hollywood's biggest stars, Richard Nixon was not yet Vice President, and Strom Thurmond had not yet been elected to the United States Senate. Through all the years, all the advances in technology, all the changes on the political map around the world, an almost entirely different world had emerged, but she had never gone away. Queen Elizabeth 2nd was the one constant through it all. The very foundation of her nation and the steadfast symbol of stability in an ever changing World. She was to so many of us what appeared to be the last adult on the world stage. In this special episode, we look back over the life of the only Monarch of Great Britain 80% of her countrymen has ever known. 14 United States Presidents, 15 British Prime Ministers, the age of radio, television, the internet, and social media have all come, and in some cases gone, under her reign. She has somehow figured out a way to steer her nation and commonwealth of nations through all of that dynamic, cultural, and ethnic change, and she has done it all while becoming the World's most beloved public figure. No easy feet for any one, in any office, to have achieved.Here you will hear her speech as a 14 year old child, requested by Winston Churchill, with the hope of swaying public sentiment in the United States during the early days of World War 2, her speech at age 21 pledging to serve her country with dedication and loyalty for the rest of her life, her Speech after the horrific death of Princess Diana, her inspirational Christmas messages in 2016 and 2021, and, finally, her message of instruction to Parliament on its opening day of 2021. We will also hear the first words from King Charles 3rd as he becomes the new Monarch of the nation of Great Britain. It is a thank you to a Queen who gave all for 70 years, as the great children's character Paddington said, "thank you for everything" God Save the King!!

In 1989 at the age of 21, DavidPaul Doyle knew the direction he had plotted for his life. From the 8th grade, his passion had focused on his becoming a fighter pilot, an astronaut, and eventually running for the United States Senate. Having studied in Russia and worked in the American Embassy in Moscow, and with his third year at the Air Force Academy only two weeks away, his life's goals were unexpectedly turned upside down by an extraordinary event. While riding in a car, listening to his favorite sax musician, he was suddenly enveloped by a powerful wave of overwhelming love. It was unlike anything he'd ever experienced nor had even known existed. Out of this incredible infusion of love, a question formed in his mind: "If I was an old man on my deathbed, what would I have done in my life to have had absolutely no regrets?" The question was answered as a bright light materialized in his mind. Rays from the light reached out to touch other lights, and a vivid vision of his future and true purpose became clear. It predicted he would write books that would impact people's lives throughout the world. The thought of becoming an author had never occurred to him. Though he had no clear knowledge what form this prediction would take nor what sort of books these might be, DavidPaul was transformed by this unexplained phenomenon. He turned his back on his dreams of becoming a pilot and made an instant decision to leave the Air Force Academy. Finishing his education at UC Berkeley, he threw himself into the single-minded aspiration of understanding and experiencing the source of this profound love and truth which had so changed his life. After years of devoted study and practice, DavidPaul has dedicated his life to helping others hear God's Voice within them. He has traveled worldwide conducting seminars and workshops to enthusiastic crowds on how to hear God's Voice. He has produced When God Spoke to Me: The Inspiring Stories of Ordinary People Who Have Received Divine Guidance and Wisdom, has co-authored The Voice for Love: Accessing Your Inner Voice to Fulfill Your Life Purpose, and has conducted tele-classes, year-long certification and teachers' programs, delivered free daily inspirational messages online, and produced the 30-day course, How to Hear the Voice of God. DavidPaul's heart lies in teaching. His passion is to reach as many people as possible with the gifts of the Holy Spirit. He hopes this book of collected stories from people around the world who have experienced communication with God will inspire readers to want to learn more about hearing God's Voice and to recognize the many ways they already hear this Voice in their lives. - www.whengodspoketome.com******************************************************************To listen to all our XZBN shows, with our compliments go to: https://www.spreaker.com/user/xzoneradiotv*** AND NOW ***The ‘X' Zone TV Channel on SimulTV - www.simultv.comThe ‘X' Chronicles Newspaper - www.xchroniclesnewspaper.com ******************************************************************
Hour 1 of The Dawn Stensland Show: According to a report from NBC10's Deanna Durante, police departments across the Philadelphia-area are experiencing alarming shortages of applications and are seeing an increasing number of retirements. According to a Fox29 news report, convenience store owners and workers in Philadelphia are growing frustrated with the uptick in thefts coupled with the city's reluctance to prosecute repeat shoplifters. Starbucks announced they will open a new store in Center City, Philadelphia. However, it will be takeout only and will not have restrooms available to the public. Earlier this year, Starbucks notably closed a location at 10th and Chestnut over concerns for the safety of their employees. John Fetterman has promised to debate Dr. Mehmet Oz prior to Election Day. However, he has yet to commit to a specific date and Oz has expressed concern that if the debate does occur it will be after a significant number of mail-in ballots are returned. On Thursday night, Fox News' Tucker Carlson delivered a 20-minute monologue documenting John Fetterman's failures as mayor of Braddock, Pennsylvania—concluding that Fetterman can't possibly be fit to serve in the United States Senate. On Thursday, Queen Elizabeth II passed away at Balmoral Castle. She was 96 years old.

Rundown - Troubadour Dave Gunders - 24:15 "This American Dream" by Dave Gunders - 33:20 Eli Bremer - 38:47 At Independence Hall in Philadelphia, President Joe Biden told the world what this podcast knows – Trump and MAGA threaten America. There are authoritarians among us who will do Trump's dirty bidding. Some do it for money. Some do it for racism. Peter Boyles is planning a return to radio. He's taking @710KNUS spot at 9 a.m. Saturday mornings. In the opening monologue, Boyles' return contemplated, with poached sponsors, host-ripping, and Trump backpedaling. Entertainment, intrigue and implosions to follow. Boyles is a bigot who capitulated to Randy Corporon, as documented on Ep. 48 and then Boyles flip-flopped, as chronicled on Ep. 81. On Ep. 101, Judith Berg told the world that Boyles called her the K-word in a dispute after bigots killed her former husband, Alan Berg. It was Peter Boyles who hosted Joe Oltmann twice right after 2020 election to advance Trump's Big Lie. His pal Randy Corporon helped orchestrate. Will Boyles have the guts to rip Joe Oltmann or will he avoid hot topics as other #DenverTrumpRadio hosts do? Eli Bremer pulls no punches on Corporon and Oltmann. Want to grow to be a GOP stalwart? Start with a conservative Christian American family, move them to Colorado Springs, have the children homeschooled, listen to Limbaugh, and then attend the Air Force Academy. That is our esteemed guest, Eli Bremer. This rock-ribbed Republican is an American Olympian and NBC sports commentator. Bremer is nephew of Ambassador Paul Bremer and also has a prominent attorney father. In 2022, Eli Bremer, a Colorado Springs resident, tried to win the GOP nomination for United States Senate but lost to Joe O'Dea. He also lost to GOP dirty tricks. Bremer tells the inside story of Colorado state GOP politics. Find out what Ken Buck and Randy Corporon and their accomplices did to turn the Colorado GOP into a MAGA subsidiary, replete with conspiracy theories about rigged elections, as set forth by the likes of Corporon and Oltmann. Listen to the entire Eli Bremer interview to hear full castigation of Colorado party politics, and leaders who've bought into the “election-rigging bullshit.” But then, listen to hear Eli Bremer discuss the responsibility of America's 45th president. The discussion gets heated. The dialogue with vacationing Troubadour Dave Gunders is always fun and entertaining, especially when he gets philosophical about traveling America. "This American Dream" by Dave Gunders is a haunting song of America, and an American man, in desperate times. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJns8ryQzTE&t=2s
In this week's Reagan Forum podcast we go back a week to August 25, 2022 for our in-person event with United States Senator Joni Ernst, who was a speaker in the Reagan Foundation's Time for Choosing Speaker Series, a forum for leading voices in the conservative movement. Senator Ernst is a native of Red Oak, Iowa, and has dedicated her life to her state and country, having served in the military for over 23 years and now in the United States Senate. In November 2014, she was elected as the first woman to serve in federal elected office from the State of Iowa and also became the first female combat veteran elected to serve in the United States Senate. During her Time for Choosing Speech at the Reagan Library, Senator Ernst addressed additional critical issues facing the future of the Republican Party.
Tuesday August 30, 2022 - The battle for control of the Digital Asset marketplace is fully engaged. The question "will the US Government control cryptocurrency and other digital assets" has been answered. Yes. The new question is "Which government regulatory agency will win the battle of funding - and with funding, control - of the digital market place. The battle lines are drawn - Recently, a bill was introduced in the United States Senate, Digital Commodities Consumer Protection Act of 2022. That bill "[g]rants the Commodity Futures Trading Commission ("Commission") exclusive jurisdiction over digital commodity trades, except for transactions in which a merchant or consumer is using a digital commodity solely for the purchase or sale of a good or service." Meanwhile, Gary Gensler, the Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, has staked a claim for the SEC to take the lead regulatory role in controlling the cryptocurrency and digital asset marketplace. The winning agency will be showered with funding - and power - to direct the future of the United States economy. Attorney Steven A.

Easily breaking bones and having to do “death math” to judge if an activity is safe enough for you on a daily basis creates countless challenges. But that is what living with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) requires. To overcome those enormous hurdles, and now star as a supervillain in the brand new Marvel television series ‘She-Hulk: Attorney At Law' on Disney+, is nothing short of incredible. HBH is excited to welcome actress, activist, writer and comedian, Jameela Jamil.EDS can be incredibly dangerous. A degenerative disorder, it causes those living with it to experience a shortage of collagen that affects connective tissues, which support vital functions of the body including skin, tendons, ligaments, blood vessels, internal organs and bones. Unfortunately, while treatments can help manage symptoms, there is no cure. Jameela is also a survivor of anorexia. While many are familiar with the eating disorder, most people do not realize that it has the highest cause of death for any mental illness.Through all of these challenges, Jameela's career has soared. As an actress, despite EDS, she was able to do a number of her own stunts playing the supervillain ‘Titania' on She-Hulk. As an activist, she is a leading critic of diet culture and body image marketing, particularly on social media - and is currently campaigning to introduce two bills to the United States Senate to combat these destructive influences in society.Jameela's spirit is both inspiring and hilarious and we thank her for sharing her incredible story with us.
It's Monday, August 29th, A.D. 2022. This is The Worldview in 5 Minutes heard at www.TheWorldview.com. I'm Adam McManus. By Adam McManus (Adam@TheWorldview.com) Nigerian Christian needs brain surgery after shot to head On August 28, 2021, Islamic Fulani militants targeted a Christian family in an attack on Kpachudu village in northern Nigeria. They killed Grace Peter's husband and two children, one of whom was pregnant. The Muslims also shot Grace's 20-year-old son, Godwill, in the head. Immediately following the attack, Godwill had emergency treatment to have the bullet removed from his head. About a month ago, however, he began experiencing excruciating pain in his brain, reports International Christian Concern. His mother, Grace, said that the pain is so great, he “[prefers] to die.” ICC covered the $200 fee for Godwill to return to a hospital for evaluation, where doctors determined that there is now bleeding in his brain. Godwill needs emergency surgery to prevent permanent damage. Due to the complicated nature of the surgery, it will cost about $3,400. Godwill's mother cried loudly as she said, “I don't know how to take care of my son. Help me again. I don't want to lose another son again. I will have no one to help me farm.” Please pray for Godwill as he undergoes brain surgery and prayerfully consider contributing towards his medical bills through a special link in our transcript today at www.TheWorldview.com. Galatians 6:2 says, “Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” Prince Charles daily visiting Queen Elizabeth Prince Charles has been making regular morning visits to Queen Elizabeth II at Balmoral Castle as she continues to suffer mobility problems, reports The Sun. They are a sign of the Prince of Wales' concern for his mother as unplanned visits between households on the estate are highly unusual, royal experts say. The 96-year-old monarch is not expected to travel the 1,000-mile round-trip from Balmoral Castle to appoint a new Prime Minister next month in London. Stop Biden from packing Supreme Court Our nation is about to experience the hardest push ever by the radical Left to pack the Supreme Court, asserts First Liberty Institute. President Biden wants to increase the number of justices to change the ideological makeup of the court from conservative to liberal. The Biden administration has already shown a willingness to crush any dissent by silencing anyone who dares to stand for freedom and the Constitution. It has: Allowed and even encouraged illegal protests outside the homes of Supreme Court justices to influence their decisions this summer. Overseen the FBI raid of former President Donald Trump who also happens to be Biden's primary political opponent. Imagine what the Court would look like if the Left had their way: a partisan judicial system rigged in their favor and dominated by activist judges. President Biden would pack the Supreme Court with justices who resemble his most recent pick, Ketanji Brown Jackson. Throughout her career, she has: Supported pro-abortion groups as an attorney. Consistently shown hostility towards religious freedom, free speech, originalism, and the right to keep and bear arms. And even refused to provide a definition of a woman during her confirmation hearing. As Roe v. Wade was on the cusp of being overturned, Leftists, like Democrat Senator Ed Markey of Massachusetts, Congressman Adam Schiff of California and Congresswoman Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, called for Biden to pack the Supreme Court. However, in two nationwide polls, conducted by Mason Dixon Polling and commissioned by First Liberty Institute, 65% of Americans oppose adding seats to the Supreme Court of the United States. Ironically enough, when Biden served as ranking minority member of the Senate Judiciary Committee in 1983, he denounced packing the Court as a ”bonehead idea.” Listen. BIDEN: “President [Franklin] Roosevelt clearly had the right to send to the United States Senate and the United States Congress a proposal to pack the court [in 1937], but it was a bonehead idea.” Governor DeSantis: I stood for freedom over Faucism As Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis campaigned for re-election last week against Democrat Charlie Crist, he reminded voters how he stood tall against Fauci's government lockdowns, reports The Blaze. DeSANTIS: “Biden and Fauci and the CDC -- they wanted to turn our country into a biomedical security state. They wanted you to be limited on what you could do in society based on whether you produced proof of getting a COVID jab. They wanted people to be marginalized, not being able to travel. We were the first state in the country to say' that's not happening here' and we banned vaccine passports.” (cheers) DeSantis blasted Dr. Anthony Fauci, the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. DeSANTIS: “If it was up to him, your kids would not have been able to go to school in 2020. Some of you would have lost your businesses or your jobs. So, we made sure to choose freedom over Fauci as we were not going to let this state descend into some type of Faucian dystopia, not on my watch. That was not going to happen!” (cheers) Dr. Erwin Lutzer: Parents must homeschool their children And finally, many public school boards are making it clear they do not want to hear from parents. Because of the sexualization of children, the push of the transgender insanity and Critical Race Theory, parents have pulled two million students out of public schools to be taught in private schools or at home. Dr. Erwin Lutzer, author of No Reason to Hide: Standing for Christ in a Collapsing Culture, believes cultural Marxism is infiltrating public schools. The destruction of the nuclear family is part of the goal of silencing dissent. Dr. Lutzer said, “Parents need to be warned, if possible, they must homeschool their children. We cannot allow our schools to undermine what God expects us to do. Most public schools are so pagan that whenever possible, parents should find alternative means of education.” Deuteronomy 6:5-7 says, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.” Close And that's The Worldview in 5 Minutes on this Monday, August 29th, in the year of our Lord 2022.

This week we welcome Cole Lyle, Executive Director of Mission Roll Call. Prior to Mission Roll Call, Cole worked as an advisor to senior leadership at the VA and on veteran policy in the United States Senate. As a veteran and advocate, Cole uses his experience in both fields to highlight the voices of 1.4 million members in MRC's network to advocate for veteran's issues across the United States. Cole is uniquely positioned to lead MRC as he knows personally the struggles of military members and veterans. From fighting on the ground in Afghanistan to battling PTSD, and then helping write the PAWs Act after his life was changed thanks to his service dog, Kaya - Cole knows the ups and downs of veteran life. Traditional advocacy groups require veterans to voice their opinions through layers of bureaucracy at their local, state, and national levels, where veterans lose their voice. Using modern technology, Mission Roll Call hears the unfiltered voice of veterans across America and tells their collective story directly to lawmakers and interest groups. Roughly half of veterans are unaffiliated with the VA or any veteran service organization. Mission Roll Call is the first of its kind: a movement that gives every veteran a voice on the issues that are most important to them. It is a community where veterans and their families share stories, voice concerns, and present solutions for their benefit. So if you are ready to have your voice heard from Main Street to Washington...this is the episode for you.For more information about Mission Roll Call go to https://www.missionrollcall.org.This week's highlighted veteran owned business is Thigh Huggers.

Welcome to The Georgia Politics Podcast, where Craig and Professor Stone present Part 2 of their special on the life and legacy of Senator Ted Kennedy. The primary topic for Part 2 is the notorious Chappaquiddick episode of Kennedy's life, how it shaped the country's politics, and continued a Kennedy family legacy of controversy. The Kennedys are the closest equivalent America has to political royalty. John F. Kennedy was, of course, the 35th President of the United States and his brother Bobby Kennedy served as his Attorney General, and later as a Senator from New York and Presidential candidate. Various other Kennedys have served in other appointed and elected political positions. Ted Kennedy, the younger brother of John and Bobby, is known for his long tenure in the United States Senate, where he served from 1962 until his death in 2009. His political and personal life was full of both promise and controversy. He was long considered the heir to the Kennedy dynasty, and then a tragic incident on Chappaquiddick Island left 28-year-old Mary Jo Kopechne dead after a car driven by Kennedy crashed into the Poucha Pond. Kennedy survived. Clips used in this episode: 1969 ABC News report on Ted Kennedy's accident at Chappaquiddick Island Edward J.

The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 recently passed through the United States Senate, and while that may not sound like it has anything to do with the environment, this bill contains a number of items related to climate and emissions reduction, and is a big step forward in fighting climate change. Casey and Sara discuss what the bill does and doesn't do, and talk about the next steps as the bill moves to the House of Representatives.

Last Sunday, the United States Senate passed the Inflation Reduction Act after a grueling 16-hour vote-a-rama. The IRA is the product of more than a year of negotiations around a reconciliation framework and decades of advocacy around federal climate policy. The IRA isn't perfect, but it represents enormous progress. It invests nearly $370 billion in climate and clean energy priorities while significantly reducing the price of prescription medication, helping pay off the national debt, expanding ACA subsidies, and closing tax loopholes on corporations to help pay for new investments. It's a big bill. More importantly, voters are incredibly supportive of the IRA and its potential to lower costs, strengthen our economic security, reduce the national deficit, and make the wealthy pay their fair share. In today's episode, on the cusp of House passage, McKenzie and Marcela discuss recent Data for Progress polling on the Inflation Reduction Act and how Democrats can effectively communicate about this landmark piece of legislation.

President Biden and Democrats in the United States Senate have reached a deal on another massive and wasteful spending bill, falsely calling it the Inflation Reduction Act. According to one non-partisan and trusted analysis, the bill will have zero impact on inflation. In fact, the analysis shows that inflation will increase in the short term because, again, the federal government is printing new money to pay for all this unnecessary new spending we cannot afford. The Inflation-Inducing Act, as it should be called, will also increase taxes on the poor, the middle class, and businesses -- in the middle of a recession. Taxpayers with incomes below $75,000 will pay $136 billion in higher taxes. The manufacturing industry, and all the family-supporting jobs manufacturing provides, will be hit the hardest with $73 billion in higher taxes. Hang on everyone, Mr. Biden's Wild Ride is about to get worse.

“Who's coming with me to Washington?” Kitty Brandtner asked, the day after the July 4th mass shooting in Highland Park, Illinois. Kitty had been attending a similar event nearby with her young family when a man with an assault weapon opened fire on families and parade goers. In a mix of grief and fury, Kitty took to social media and nearly overnight, she mobilized a team of citizens who were also ready to turn their grief into action. The March Fourth movement was born. Within just one week, volunteers planned a rally attended by 500, and organized meetings in Washington, D.C. with lawmakers with one clear mission: To ban assault weapons nationally. Survivors from Highland Park were joined from families of victims from Uvalde, TX to demand action from our government. The noise from this effort resulted in the House of Representatives passing HR 1808. The next stop is the United States Senate following the summer recess. But the work of March Fourth is far from over. Money is still needed to keep the message loud, clear, and consistent until the bill becomes a law. A big part of this is maintaining media presence and driving awareness. March Fourth has also made great efforts to run interference between the families who wish to grieve privately and the media who have violated that privacy. According to Kitty, this is not a political issue, but a human one. Those interested in supporting can spread the word via social media by following and sharing the the information from @march_fourth_. Quotes • “It is this incredible group of mostly women, but also men. It's not just moms and it's not just parents—it's people from all walks of life. But the common theme is that we don't believe that we should feel unsafe going to a grocery store, concert, parade, sending our kids to school, etc. It shouldn't be this way.”(14:19-14:43 | Kitty) • “Part of what makes this easy is we only have one goal, there's no convoluted six-step plan. Our goal is to federally ban assault weapons and to do it right now. That's it.” (16:45-16:59 | Kitty) • “When there's a will, there's a way. If something matters and you put all your energy into it, you're going to make it happen. There's no alternative.” (27:00-27:09 | Kitty) Connect with Kitty Brandtner: Instagram | http://www.instagram.com/march_fourth_ Please don't forget to rate, comment, and subscribe to Dear FoundHer on Apple, Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts!

Back by popular demand, we once again welcome you to another special “political history” episode of The Georgia Politics Podcast. This time, Craig and Professor Stone sit down to discuss the life and legacy of the late Senator Ted Kennedy. The Kennedys are the closest equivalent America has to political royalty. John F. Kennedy was, of course, the 35th President of the United States and his brother Bobby Kennedy served as his Attorney General, and later as a Senator from New York and Presidential candidate. Various other Kennedys have served in other appointed and elected political positions. Ted Kennedy, the younger brother of John and Bobby, is known for his long tenure in the United States Senate, where he served from 1962 until his death in 2009. His political and personal life was full of both promise and controversy. Long considered the heir to the Kennedy dynasty, the focus of Part 1 of this episode is on his run for the Presidency in 1980 – what went wrong, what went wrong, and why he never tried again.

In this week's episode of the A Walk In My Stilettos podcast, I bring you another inspiring story of resilience. Sunnie McFadden-Curtis is an Award-Winning Filmmaker & Social Advocate for Women & Children. Her documentary BROKEN VOWS: Stories of Separation takes you into the lives of several women to learn more about the process of navigating a separation. This film follows the socially conscious producer's previous projects: Bullying: A Culture of Silence, Cyber Bullying: Where Are We Going Wrong? & Shane r u there? With her outspoken advocacy for the disenfranchised, she was invited to be part of the campaign 24/7. 24/7 gave Sunnie internationally speaking status on anti-bullying education to help make schools safer for children and teens. Sunnie recognized she needed to get involved in the political arena to continue to make real change in anti-bullying education which took her from Queen's Park, Toronto all the way to the US Senate. She was instrumental in having a resolution introduced and passed to officially recognize the 3rd week of November as “Bullying Awareness & Prevention Week” across Ontario. The same year Sunnie and her son Brennan were invited by the United States Senate to participate in roundtable discussions about ways to make schools safer through anti-bullying education. Tune in to hear how she navigated separation and how you can too! We discussed:
The Mighty is a new program on The MeidasTouch Podcast channel where we highlight the incredible commentary of Meidas contributors. On this episode of The Mighty, British Broadcaster Anthony Davis discusses the most embarrassing member of the United States Senate. Ok, we know. We've gotta be more specific. Today, we are talking about none other than Lindsey Graham. You see, Lindsey Graham is working overtime to keep his title as the most pathetic person in the United States Senate. During a recent GOP summit, Graham, who had previously said he was done with Trump, explained why he thinks the disgraced former president, who led an insurrection against the United States, is actually good for the Republican Party. His answer is incredibly revealing not just regarding his own mindset, but it speaks to the broader way in which the fascist Republican Party is using Trump to achieve their goals. Anthony Davis's analysis is a must-listen to understand where the Republican Party is heading. New episodes of The Mighty are released on this channel Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday. New episodes of the world famous MeidasTouch Podcast featuring the Meiselas brothers are released on this channel Tuesday and Friday mornings.

Strom Thurmond, A LIFE in Full, is our special three part look at the life of Senator Strom Thurmond of South Carolina. Senator Thurmond is actually the person we focused our very first episode on when we started this podcast. It was the first in our 11 part series that put a spotlight on the leadership lessons we could learn from the World War 2 Generation and how we could apply those lessons to today's issues. The lessons I chose to focus on in that episode was his conscious decision to change and his decision not to fight the same old battles over and over again after it was clear that he had lost. Don't you wish today's leaders would pay attention to those two lessons? Strom Thurmond bares the distinction of being the one historical figure out of all that our show has covered that I actually knew. While we were not friends he was someone I dealt with fairly often between 1991 and 1997 and met with again in 2000 and as a freshman city council member in my first three months in office while he was serving his final year in March of 2002, when the Senator was 99 years old. I was , however, able to get to know his sister Mrs. Martha Bishop of Greenwood S.C. fairly well and years later I helped Senator Thurmond's son, Paul Thurmond, in his bid to run for the United States Congress from a District that ran between Myrtle Beach and Charleston , South Carolina. I came away from these encounters with an extraordinarily high regard for the entire Thurmond Family. It is from that viewpoint that I have put together all of the shows that have focused either entirely or partially on Senator Strom Thurmond. I honestly feel that those listeners who did not know or remember Senator Thurmond could benefit from hearing more about the man who served our state for a remarkable 74 years. Due to the Senator's more ancient past, when he was involved in leading the fight against the civil rights movement, much of what most people know or remember, is that era, and only that era, of his career. They ignore his early career when he was actually viewed as progressive for a Southern political figure, and his later career when he shifted on the issue of civil rights and helped lead not just South Carolina but the entire South away from its past on the subject of race. This episode starts a three part look at his life and it covers his overall entire biography, and a focused look at this personal relationship with his daughter Essie Mae Washington Williams, and his change on civil rights, a change that was widely noted at the time of his death in June of 2003., but largely ignored today.Then we will move on in our second and third episodes to looking at his life as a Senator and his impact both big and small on his constituents, and finally a look back at his final campaign for re-election to the United States Senate against Democratic businessman Elliot Close. A campaign in which I volunteered and had the extraordinary experience to get to be up-close on a few occasions to the largest political figure South Carolina produced in the 20th century. For me, it was one of the most important experiences of my lifetime. ** I wish to acknowledge the fine work of WIS TV 10, SC ETV, and CNN for their news broadcasts that we used in putting these three podcasts together, much of which was aired over a three day period when the senator passed away.

How would you feel, if you suddenly lost the gifts so many of us take for granted, such as vision, hearing, or the ability to walk? Fanny Crosby was struck blind at just 6 weeks of age, but God had a plan for her. She was raised by her mother and grandmother after her father's death when she was about 6 months old, and although she grew up poor, she was blessed to attend an excellent school for the blind in New York state, near where the family lived. Fanny enrolled at the New York Institution for the Blind in 1835, just before her 15th birthday. She was a student of the school for 11 years, eventually joining the faculty as a teacher for another 12 years. During her time at the school, she learned to play the piano, organ, harp, and guitar, and became a good soprano singer. After graduation, she joined a group of lobbyists in Washington, D.C. arguing for support of education for the blind. Fanny was the first woman to speak in the United States Senate when she read a poem on the Senate floor encouraging funding for state schools for the blind. Fanny befriended 17-year-old Grover Cleveland, future President of the United States, while she was a teacher, and in fact she knew each of the presidents who served during her lifetime through her work as a celebrated poet and songwriter. She later stated: “It seemed intended by the blessed providence of God that I should be blind all my life, and I thank him for the dispensation. If perfect earthly sight were offered me tomorrow I would not accept it. I might not have sung hymns to the praise of God if I had been distracted by the beautiful and interesting things about me.” Let's pray. Lord, help us to set aside every distraction and focus on your plan for us. We often take for granted the gifts you've given us. Remind us to be grateful, and to use our gifts for your glory. Amen.
Charlie dives into the great political realignment that is now manifesting throughout the country in myriad ways, however perhaps none quite so striking as the changes coursing through the Hispanic community. But what is driving the political transformation among Hispanics? Charlie breaks down why the more socially conservative the GOP becomes—while remaining firm on the border and immigration—the more attractive it becomes to the largest and fastest growing minority voting group in the country. Can the GOP win 50-55% of this demographic? Brand new Republican Congresswoman Mayra Flores has something to say about it and Charlie plays the tape. Next up, Charlie welcomes the Republican candidate for the United States Senate for the state of Ohio, JD Vance, to discuss what working class voters are worried about in the Midwest. How are the hot-button topics of inflation, jobs, gas, crime, and drugs playing with Ohioan voters? And is the Democrat candidate he's up against really a middle of the road moderate? Hear why Charlie endorsed JD early in his primary and why he believes JD will help pull the Senate back into an America First direction.

Daniel Wirls, Professor of Politics at the University of California-Santa Cruz, has a new book that continues his research stream on the United States' Senate. Wirls' previous book on the Senate, The Invention of the United States Senate (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2004), written with his brother, Stephen Wirls, explains the historical basis for the Senate, especially in context of the broader American constitutional system as established in 1787. This new book, The Senate: From White Supremacy to Governmental Gridlock (U Virginia Press, 2021), interrogates the general understanding of the U.S. Senate within the constitutional system and the way that we have come to consider the role of the Senate. Wirls explains what he has dubbed “Senate exceptionalism” which is connected to the more expansive notion of American exceptionalism—this is the notion that the U.S. Senate was a unique and special creation within the constitutional system, and that it reflects the greatest ideals of democratic governance. Wirls' analysis might suggest otherwise, since the book explores the structure of the Senate and how it actually undermines the democratic conception of “one person=one vote.” The idea of the Senate, and its role in preventing the tyranny of the majority—one of the goals ascribed to the new system established in 1787—is more problematic than the violation of democratic norms. One of the fascinating threads woven through The Senate: From White Supremacy to Governmental Gridlock is the concept of the Senate and how this concept has become embedded in our understanding of the role of this half of the U.S. Congress. Wirls' argument with regard to Senate exceptionalism is connected to the narrative about the Senate itself, as the “world's greatest deliberative body” when it sits in a murky position between the states and the people within the federal system. Senators understand, some of the time, that they represent the people of their respective states, but in so doing, they represent those voters in a dramatic violation of the notion of equal representation, since the states themselves have vastly different population totals and demographics, whereas each state has the same number of U.S. senators. Senators also see themselves, at times, as representing the states as distinct entities. Senators selectively determine if they want to represent the people or the state in different instances. The peculiarity of the filibuster only contributes to the heroic narrative about the Senate, since the filibuster was a creation of the Senate itself (it is not in the Constitution), and the changes in the filibuster and the evolution of those reforms have only made the inequality of representation in the Senate more acute. In a sense, the filibuster or the threat of a filibuster has essentially given a few members of the U.S. Senate a very powerful veto over legislation and reform. Lilly J.

With a current 50-50 split in the United States Senate, the pressure will be on at this year's Midterms — where a single race could determine which party takes charge off the Senate majority. One potentially game-changing race is going down in Vermont, where Congressman Peter Welch and Former U.S. attorney Christina Nolan are vying for Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy's seat following his retirement. Today, Republican Senate candidate Christina Nolan joins the Rundown to discuss how she will bring a “fresh perspective” to the Senate that many voters crave, why she has so much respect for the Republican party, and her plans to reach across the aisle and “work for the people” if sent to Washington.

John Bussey, Associate Editor at the Wall Street Journal and FOX News Contributor joins the podcast to explain why the June jobs report was a good step for the U.S. economy, the Fed's next steps and what economists are saying about the U.S. trajectory towards a recession. Plus, commentary by Democratic strategist and FOX News contributor Leslie Marshall. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
