We could have talked about actor Jusse Smollett, but instead we focus on an example of how Congress is failing the public. Like many in Congress, Rep. Brindisi makes a lot of promises. But how serious can we take the promise based on what he has done. Or rather the only thing he has done. A gift of 7 words - and they aren't even his own.

We welcome back to the studio Lily Tang Williams. An exceptional mother, naturalized citizen, Second Amendment advocate, and businesswoman. We discuss her speeches at colleges across the nation, her views about the Green New Deal vs China, and the latest developments of the Red Flag legislation in Colorado. Her comments on the dangers of socialism, from her first-hand view, are eyeopening.

The unspoken issue hiding in the background of the Green New Deal (GND) is 100% compliance. What if you don't want to comply? What will the Democratic Socialist do to you? What freedom do you have if the Government compels you by force? It's an issue Americans must discuss, so tell us your thoughts.

We hear about the "evils" of owning a gun in mass media all the time. We are told we need to be more like "civilized" nations like United Kingdom (England). But what does that really mean? Is England more or less violent? With more or less weapons? Featuring interview with Ken McClenton of Exceptional Conservative Show in DC.

Our Saturday Facebook Live Simulcast kicks off with serious questions. Is New York a viable State to live in? Can non-Progressives enjoy being here? Have any of the laws passed in January 2019 been a boon to the residents and citizens? We speak directly with the public to find out. Plus we put out a poll asking women in NY, do you feel safer now than before 2019.

An in-depth conversation with Chris DeMarco, president of the Binghamton University College Republican Club on the perceptions of the latest laws passed by the NY State legislature and signed by Gov. Cuomo. What impact is it having on college students? What are the discussions on free college for illegal aliens? How do female students feel about having to wait 30 days to protect themselves? We asked, and Chris gave us his thoughts.

January 25, 2019 - Broome County, NY - We sat down with NY-52 State Senator Fred Akshar ahead of the expected votes on pending gun legislation in the NY State Senate. The discussion covers the ramifications of Gov. Cuomo's push on a Progressive social agenda, the NY economy and small business community, taxation, and communicating with the public - besides several firearm Bills. It was a candid and frank conversation about the consequences of elections, and the future of New York State.

We had the chance to discuss his reaction to the NY State of the State, his views on issues affecting jobs and the economy in the Southern Tier, and the pending gun legislation facing the State Legislature in a week.

Jan. 4, 2019 - Broome County, NY - Our first episode of the new year, and the issue of the day is gender politics. Or rather the inherent bias of gender politics. Plus the amazing Bills that are headlining the 116th Congress so far. Finally, believe it or not, the 2020 election cycle may have just started (and we don't mean Gov. Cuomo and the Presidential race).

The top highlights of 2018

With the end of 2018 in sight, we take a moment to look back on some of the biggest issues of the year. The podcasts and topics that the public found of the most interest, the stories that had the most impact. You may be surprised at the results.

00:0000:00

With New York State as the example for the nation, a series of gifts from Government to the people will arrive in 2019. We have been promised to expect tax increases, fewer Rights, higher unemployment, worse healthcare, and as a bonus we are expected to pay the politicians making this happen up to 4x the national average. Republicans and Conservatives would call it worse than a lump of coal, and Progressives a rough diamond, but what do you think?

Voted Democrat? Or Libertarian? Didn't vote at all? Doesn't matter. Don't own a firearm, or even if you hate them, you still can be punished by the law. Just because of your social media.

The ramifications start with invading your privacy, then it's worse than you imagine. You, and your mom could be charged with child pornography. You could be charged with underage drinking. You could be labeled a Nazi. Just a few things that could happen that we discuss in the Facebook Live simulcast.

But the Government would never abuse its power like that, you say. Corruption like that could never happen, not in New York State, you say. No conspiracy, just facts and logical consequences major media and politicians don't want you to think about. Feel free to comment.

In reflecting on the results of the 2018 mid-term elections, Republicans in many ways were like the adventurers of Goblin Slayer. It's a connection Anime fans will likely understand, but in this episode we try to explain it as we get back into the groove of things.

 

By the way, if you have trouble searching for this, its due to the suppression of Youtube and Google because of the name in the title: Goblin Slayer. Censorship is alive and well in 2018.

00:0000:00

This podcast was originally made as a video podcast posted on Nov. 10, 2018, on Youtube. It was delayed in the audio format due to work on the 2018 mid-term election.

 

Nov 10, 2018 - Binghamton - I have been asked many times in the past week 'what is an absentee ballot', 'what is an affidavit vote?' Here is a rundown of what they are, in the NY-22 race, and how they will determine the winner of the mid-term election.

00:0000:00

This episode was published Nov. 5 2018, as a video podcast on Youtube. The audio only version has been delayed due to work on the 2018 mid-term elections. We apologize for getting behind.

 

11/5/18 - Binghamton NY - It's a very different point of view, a spontaneous realization. The way that Disney has presented Star Wars (especially Episode 8) is exactly the way pundits have presented the mid-terms. But they have no idea what they are talking about. Or do they?

00:0000:00

This episode was originally produced as a video podcast and published on Youtube (link below) on November 4, 2018. Due to delays from the 2018 mid-term elections, it is now being published in audio format.

 

In this Facebook Live simulcast we discuss 2 big issues, the lawsuit by migrants in the caravan headed to the US claiming Rights reserved for US citizens. Also we discuss an item where the Broome County Board of Elections appears to be disenfranchising voters. You won't see this in major news media, but you should. Please comment and share.

This was initially published in video format on Youtube (link below) on October 25, 2018. Due to a heavy work schedule at the end of the election cycle, it was not rendered for podcast format until now. We apologize for the delay. 

 

After attending the NY-22 debate held at Colgate University with Spectrum News, having heard Anthony Brindisi speak at 4 town halls including on 10/23 in Binghamton, several glaring conflicts need to be addressed. This video addresses some of them.

There is a ton of ground to cover in this episode. From the breaking news about Nancy Pelosi facing the kind of treatment Maxine Waters has promoted, to the question if Elizabeth Warren should make a reparation for the benefits she received for claiming to be a Native Indian. How about the revelation that a candidate for Sheriff supports the domestic terrorist group Antifa - and has been hiding this fact from voters. Or the fact that a former Congressman, widely seen as a problem is about as much of a benefit as touting an NRA rating that was stripped away. Oh yes, there is a lot to discuss and ask in this episode.

There are a multitude of things that can be said about Kanye West, but racial slurs should not be among them - unless its said from the Far Left apparently. Going far beyond microaggressions, the Left abandons the pretense of open mindedness as a 1 man revolt from their views incites racism. This is of course not to be outdone by the furthest Left fringe, as Antifa breaks the law in an efforts to intimidate Republicans by vandalism and threats of greater violence to come. We need to share this and our comments.

This episode reviews the question of civility in politics. Not from the perspective from just this week, but going back in time to 2011 and tracking it to today. What has changed? What has devolved? Who has failed to be civil and who has called for it?

We have a unique theory, that none have yet considered. While the Senate confirmation hearings for Judge Brett Kavanaugh to Supreme Court may not have started as a political circus, with the allegations from Dr. Christine Ford and others, it has become one. But this circus of partisan politics has revealed, in our opinion, not just the the platform and theme of the 2020 presidential race, but quite possibly who will be the top of the ticket for the Democrat nomination race. Gov. Andrew Cuomo is so far out of the realm we don't even mention him. But we do go through other likely front-runners; who will make the cut and who won't and why. Plus, the unstated potential impact on the 2018 mid-term elections. Comments are welcomed - what do you think of the theory?

In a direct conversation with the public, we delve into the Senate Judiciary Hearings on the accusations against Brett Kavanaugh by Christine Ford. What are the inconsistencies in testimony? Do they matter? How is this affecting America? Do you believe her, him, or both? Is your belief based on facts, gender, or political preference?

We start this simulcast podcast via Facebook Live a little later than normal due to coverage of Congresswoman Claudia Tenney at the Greater Binghamton Sports Center. But we get to a full run almost immediately, addressing the national issue of Professor Ford and her allegation of sexual assault by Judge Kavanaugh 35 years ago. An issue clouded by emotion, but at its core a political abuse that only serves to damage all Americans. Please share this, especially the call for all those who have suffered a sexual assault to come forward, so justice can stand by them. There is a lot in this episode, an you may be surprised.

We delve into the timeline of the Kavanaugh nomination, and the obstacles that have been attempted to derail it. More importantly we look at aspects of the consequences this political circus has created for the nation. From the attempts to vilify all men, to victimizing the victim, this has moved well beyond the Supreme Court and is credibly changing the nation forever.
