Samuel Smith believes that simply throwing money at problems and people doesn’t work when it comes to addressing the nation’s ‘War on Poverty’ that Lyndon B. Johnson launched in 1964. Allowing those being helped to contribute whatever they are able allows them to maintain their integrity, which is vital to success. What do you think? Tune in! Call in!
Perhaps they were going for shock value to get the kids’ attention. Mission accomplished!
The sex education flyer posted at a Kansas middle school may have been factually correct, but that doesn’t mean it was age appropriate. And don’t try to tell me, “well, kids that age are already doing those things.” I’m sure SOME of them are. But I doubt very seriously it’s the majority. So why do we need to plant those ideas in impressionable young minds years before they should have to deal with it?
It isn’t necessary to graphically describe every aspect of intimate and personal contact to convey to a teenager what “touching” involves.
Most middle schoolers are so self-conscious that most are going to be embarrassed simply by reading it.
To add insult to injury, parents were not given notice of the class or curriculum and were not given an option to opt their child out.
Oh, and the required abstinence portion of the curriculum… it’s there on the poster. Do you see it?
If you aren’t involved in your children and grandchildren’s schools, you better get involved and know what they’re teaching. Parents have rights too. Be a voice for your child.
Professional motorcyclist Keith Code knows the ins and outs of the drug world first hand all too well. He’s recently been named ambassador for the Foundation for a Drug Free World. Keith joins Joe to talk about the project and how we can all join forces to help keep our kids drug free. Tune in!
If you think the Islamic jihad is not real, think again.
Major General Paul E. Vallely was on the show yesterday. Today he sent me the video linked below which was posted to Facebook yesterday by Supreme Kalamullah Abu Abdullah (HA), the Emir of the Mujahireen of the Islamic State of Iraq and Shaam.
In the video Abdullah says, “The American General (Gen. Paul E. Vallely), may Allah enable us to kidnap him and cut his head off, has gathered with the Free Army and they have made battle plans to attack the Islamic State.”
These people are not a joke. This is serious business. We need to be praying daily for the safety and security of General Vallely and the other American citizens working in those middle eastern states. They are fighting for freedoms everywhere.
I urge you to add them to your prayer list.
Good news! Not all kids are doing drugs. Some kids snorting candy.
Bad news… that can lead to nasal maggots. You read that right… NASAL MAGGOTS!
I’m sure these kids just thought they’d look cool snorting Smarties through rolled up dollar bills instead of cocaine.
And I’m sure they weren’t mimicking actions they’d seen on TV, movies, and the internet, right? Of course they were!
And yes, when I was a kid you could buy a pack cigarette-shaped gum and pretend to look cool while “smoking”. But that was before we knew how bad it was and pretty much everyone smoked and it wasn’t illegal.
So, why is it “cool” do pretend to do illegal drugs? Is this really what we want our kids aspiring to? Of course not. Time to change the narrative. Pay attention parents!
You can read more about it and see pictures here. Then pass the info along to other parents.

If she won’t be honest about her life story, why do you think she’ll be honest in dealing with the state’s business?
Texas gubernatorial candidate and curent Fort Worth state senator, Wendy Davis has been caught in a web of seemingly unnecessary lies. She can’t say she didn’t know, because these are details about her own life. Why she decided to twist the facts is not clear because it doesn’t seem like it would make much difference to me. So why not just tell the REAL story?
She told a local newspaper that her “language should be tighter”. I’d recommend it just be accurate and truthful. If you just tell the truth, you won’t have to worry about getting caught in a lie.
Joe talks about Martin Luther King Jr and his connection to Obama, Jackson and Sharpton, if any AND Andrea Nelson, from the Clover Agency, joins Joe to discuss recent news events that you probably won’t hear anywhere else. Tune in, you’ll be surprised.
Apparently this teacher had no clue what Christmas is really about.
She gave the assignment to 1st graders to “find something at home that represents a family Christmas tradition and share it with the class.” Maybe she should have been a little more specific and asked for “non-Christian Christmas traditions” only.
If Christmas is a religious holiday to your family, you’re probably going to mention those religious traditions in a presentation about your family’s “Christmas tradition.”
What the teacher did in response to this student was completely over the top and potentially damaging to that 6 year old. She was told to stop in the middle of her presentation and sit down. She wasn’t allowed to finish. No other children were treated that way.
The principal said she was stopped because they didn’t “want to offend other students.” If my children had been in her class, they would have been offended by the way the teacher treated her! Does that offense count?
Schools are prohibited from expressing disapproval or hostility toward students’ expressions of religious viewpoints. Uh… I’m thinking that was a bit hostile. Anyone else?
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. wasn’t just an activist. He was an active Christian and Pastor.
Funny how his prominent Christian background and roots are nowhere to be found on the MLK memorial in Washington, D.C. He openly spoke of his belief and reliance on God and reminded others of their need to do the same. Yet, no mention of God. Not even a scripture quoted on his memorial.
Revisionist history? You decide.
He says he was fired for his sexual preference. Heterosexual, male, gym teacher (age 50) terminated after 16 years of good reviews. He says the termination came as a result of his new boss, who happens to be a lesbian, and seemed to have a problem with his family lifestyle. He says he wasn’t the only one targeted by her.
He’s filed a lawsuit.
Do you think there is equal protection under the law for this man?

I guess it’s kind of in my DNA being from Boston. That rival between New York and Boston is almost natural, like it is between the Angels and Dodgers in Southern California.
However, being an American takes priority over being a Bostonian or a Republican. New York is one of the first things that pops into your head when you think of America, along with freedom, mom, and apple pie.
New York was among the first of our foundational cities in our fight for freedom from oppression and tyranny. It was where many fought and died for freedom of the press, freedom of religion, and just plain freedom! (Queue Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg address.)
If you want to take a swipe at America, you attack New York! New York has always been a micro history of this great country… Well, NO MORE!
New York and its politics is becoming a symbol for the very things this country has always fought against. Freedoms in New York are being lost at an alarming rate. New York’s government leaders must be “inhaling deeply” when they pass the pot shops on the corners.
Where to begin without running out of space on the paper?
The Twitchy.com staff summarized Governor Andrew Cuomo best as basically saying, attention all wingnuts bitterly clinging to the “extreme” notion that there’s a “right to life,” there’s “no place” for you in the state of New York!
Well thank God! (Yes, I used the “God” word) I certainly wouldn’t want to be with a group of progressive, left-leaning, closed-mind, extreme elitists that see Governor Cuomo as an asset to New York. (Did I insult them all? If I left anyone out, I’m sorry. I’ll try to get to you later.)
Here’s what the Governor said about New York state elected Republican representatives:
“Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”
There is a very large number of New Yorkers who are religious, God-believing, right-to-life-believing people and, obviously, voters. Many of whom just simply want to go about their business and let people live their lives. Those people are about to get bitten. Between Cuomo and DeBlazio they are almost guaranteed that there really is no place for them in New York.
Where’s the outrage that the Governor called conservatives who stand for the right to life “extreme”? Can you imagine if a conservative or Republican dared to say that “there’s no place in California for “extreme liberals” who are pro-choice and pro-abortion”? There would be a virtual media bloodfest! Oh, the humanity! The outrage of every liberal would be on him like we have recently seen with Governor Christie and President Obama.
Obama. Twenty-two issues. Christie. One issue. Yet, as usual, the media can only see fault in the Republican (and not even a conservative at that!) Hypocrites!
So, there is a right-to-life for bald eagles. We protect the right-to-life for tigers, whales, sea lions, dolphins, and leopards but not humans.
Even as more and more stories and studies come out as to the viability of the unborn, we still turn a blind eye. In a recent story, a 19-week “baby” (or as some of you call it, a fetus) survived outside the womb for a while. Many hospitals try, and succeed, at saving the lives of “preemies.” Should they stop doing that? Do they have a right-to-life? Do the parents have a right to let them die? Let’s hope they aren’t traveling through New York when the time comes!
Then there are those “extreme conservatives who are …. pro-assault-weapon.” Oh wait! Those are actually “pro-Constitution” Americans, both on the extreme right and the extreme left, who believe in a republic (not a dictatorship where the governor decides what the rules are).
“Assault weapon” is a term being thrown around like “racism” and “global warming.” What does it mean? Five rounds in a clip? Ten rounds? Some states say it’s any gun that can carry a clip! This is the real lunacy. Gun violence has gone down in this country over the last 30-50 years as gun ownership has increased and gun technology has improved. Talk about fear mongering!
And the best one… “extreme conservatives who are … anti-gay.” Really?! This is like the word game the Democrats play with the term “illegal alien.” They say “people can’t be Illegal.” NO REALLY?! But people can do illegal acts.
Many of those religious conservatives (some are even Democrats, oh my!) don’t believe in the “gay lifestyle.” They don’t hate gays, PERIOD. Which means they are not “anti-gay.” But if you must label it, it would be more accurately termed “anti-gay lifestyle.”
As if that weren’t bad enough for the state of New York, there is the Democrat-socialist, card carrying, Castro and Chavez loving, Mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio. You New Yorkers are soooo screw…..d!
You loved Rudy Giuliani, a Republican! He cleaned up the streets, both crime and garbage. Got the economy cranking again and made New York City a great place to do business again. No Bible, religious, anti-gay, anti-gun, extreme conservative talk. Just good government policies.
Then you chose Michael Bloomberg! Mr. Nanny himself. He made you nuts but he, too, kept the city safe, clean, and brought new business in. Unfortunately, he went off the rails regulating guns and food and, as a result, really seemed to lose traction during his last days in office. But he did make important strides in safety and the economy.
Now, how de Blasio is going to save New York City, I don’t know. And why? What was so bad?
He is going to save the horses by banning them from being used to pull horse-drawn carriages because it’s mean? No, not really. The real backstory is it’s because one of his real estate friends wants the property where the stables are located to build an apartment complex.
De Blasio is also going to make sure there are more Planned Parenthood locations by giving them space in city-owned buildings and shutting down all the “choice”-type pregnancy centers. Sounds like a fair and level approach, not! Giving taxpayer space to a group that already gets taxpayer money to perform abortions as its main source of revenue, isn’t extreme if you’re Mayor de Blasio.
Oh, and while Governor Cuomo is freezing taxes for 10 years on new companies moving into New York, Mayor de Blasio is raising taxes to fund many of the programs he wants to implement. Glad to see they’re working together.
So New York, you deserve what you voted for. Well, at least what about 40% of you voted for. Those of you who didn’t vote, you got what you didn’t vote for and you earned it through your apathy. Congratulations!
The once great city of New York will eventually be the mirror image of Detroit… Hopefully local officials can salvage the rest of the state.
Americans (and especially New Yorkers!) wake up! You’re losing this country little by little!
At 33, he was pressing the case of civil rights with President John Kennedy. At 34, he galvanized the nation with his “I Have a Dream” speech. At 35, he won the Nobel Peace Prize. At 39, he was assassinated, but he left a legacy of hope and inspiration that continues today.
A man to whom honor is due!
Let’s take a minute to remember Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
He would have been 83 years old. He tirelessly fought to help those who felt they had nothing to fight with. In the eleven-year period between 1957 and 1968, King traveled over six million miles and spoke over twenty-five hundred times, appearing wherever there was injustice, protest, and action; and meanwhile he wrote five books as well as numerous articles. In these years, he led a massive protest in Birmingham, Alabama, that caught the attention of the entire world, providing what he called a coalition of conscience.
He was arrested upwards of twenty times and assaulted at least four times; he was awarded five honorary degrees; was named Man of the Year by Time magazine in 1963.
On the evening of April 4, 1968, while standing on the balcony of his motel room in Memphis, Tennessee, where he was to lead a protest march in sympathy with striking garbage workers of that city, he was assassinated.
A waste of a great life.
Remember Martin Kuther King today.
Joe deals with CNN’s spin on what the Pope MEANT about abortion, Talking all things faith, including faith-based current events (and sometimes even that dreaded political overlap, YIKES!) Tune in!
There’s been 8 or 9 AP reports recently on Christians being drug out of churches in Nigeria, beaten, shot, or otherwise harmed. In the past, some have been locked in a building and burned to death. The Christian Post reports, “More Christians have been killed in Northern Nigeria than the rest of the world combined.” But we hear very little, if anything, from the Obama administration about this massive Christian persecution.
They are, however, very concerned about same sex marriage being officially prohibited in Nigeria, according to Secretary of State John Kerry.
Then again, maybe it’s just our media who’s deciding what stories to report. Maybe they’re the ones sold out to the homosexual agenda, rather than actually reporting ALL the news that might be important to their audience, they just report what they want.
Maybe it’s time for a media blitz …
I think this is conclusive evidence that there are no longer indecent exposure laws… What have we come to when so many people think that it’s OK to run around without pants on and it’s “the thing to do”?

Author and activist, Brigitte Gabriel, says it isn’t just President Obama and his administration aiding the Benghazi cover-up. Speaker Boehner continues to refuse to allow a vote on the installation of a select committee to investigate the Benghazi scandal and continues to block efforts to bring the bill forward. Tune in to hear more!
Are they just making fun of Christians and other religions who actually believe in a God?
Atheists claim that praying in public shouldn’t be done. But show me the papers where any one of our Founding Fathers said that was an abomination and shouldn’t be done. Know your history!!
You can take a look at this article. Let me know what you think. Is the Satanic group trying to make a point? Make a mockery of other religious expressions? Or just exercising their freedom of religion?

Joe deals with MANY issues of the day that run UNDER the radar. Why do liberal women feel like they have the right to tell Conservative women what to do? Fukushima Radiation out of control, ONLY 1/6 of abortion are performed for legitimate reasons.
Hey Senator! How about you leave the law-abiding people alone and focus on enforcing the laws we already have on the books. I doubt hardly any of them have to do with law-abiding folks building their own weapons.
California legislators want to ban “ghost guns” (unregistered weapons built with parts purchased online or with 3-D printers) unless the purchaser goes through a background check.
Sure, this will work, because all criminals know they’re not allowed to HAVE guns through any means, even building your own. And background checks will definitely prevent them from getting guns, because they’re such law-abiding citizens they won’t circumvent the process another way… and I’m the Mayor of Fantasyland!
The only thing legislators like state Senator Kevin de Leon will accomplish is making it more cumbersome for law-abiding citizens to get guns and parts. And God forbid if someone hacks the database that tracks all the registered gun owners. So much for their safety and well-being.

Or should I say Malcolm X. His daughter Ilyasah Shabazz in to discuss the life and times of Malcolm X and her new childrens’ book.
Well, they finally did it. The Obama administration has finally decided to terminate their contract with CGI Federal , the Obamacare website developer at the end of February.
Never mind that their contract was scheduled to expire anyway… at the end of February. I’m sure it would have taken an act of Congress to kill the contract prematurely, so we probably just had to wait it out.
Never mind that their termination is 5 months after their completely failed website launch… that they had 2 years to prepare for.
But, hey, this botched roll-out has a bright side… the White House is now thinking about establishing a department to handle IT ventures across all agencies. Because what we need is another layer of bureaucracy to help make things run more smoothly?! At least there’s more jobs… that WE have to pay for! I’m still looking for the silver lining.
And of course… the person responsible for the roll-out, Kathleen Sebelius, is still employed, at our expense, and tasked with taking another stab at the implementation of the website.
Does anyone else wonder if we’ll be receiving a refund of our hard-earned tax dollars? I’m not holding my breath. I don’t recommend you do either.

Overuse of calling people “racists” actually makes the word of no value. Many have taken to using the word like a bomb. They throw it into the middle of a conversation to distract from the real conversation or even shutdown the conversation.
Whenever that “racist” word is thrown out, especially at a white person, they are typically so uncomfortable that they just drop the conversation. We need to stop backing down! Just because we don’t agree with someone who is not the same race as ourselves, doesn’t make us racists!! It just means we disagree on the issue. Don’t let them get away with it!
Take a look at this article. It was disturbing to me. The guilt they are instilling in white people simply for being born white is frightening. White people can’t help being white any more than a black person can help being black. It’s just what they are. No one needs to apologize for their color.
