Nothing Says Political Like Selma

The President went to Selma, Alabama to celebrate and commemorate the march across the bridge that helped bring civil rights to the forefront, into the living rooms of all Americans, and help move it forward. I say celebrate the sacrifices made that day in Selma by people of all colors, yes, mostly black, but many others as well. The actions of those people that day sparked and continued a movement that couldn’t and won’t be stopped! Jump ahead 50 years. We have a black president, a black attorney general, and many positions of authority at the White House are filled by people who have black skin (sorry, I’m not calling them all “African-American” because I have been told by many blacks that they are not all of African descent). We have come a long way in 50 years. I have to say, the President made many good and honest remarks in his speech about the sacrifices made that day for black Americans. But it stops there.

Racism in America

Two Ferguson police officers resigned after the release of a Justice Department report that cited racist e-mail exchanges involving members of the city’s police force and local court officials; and, likewise, Court Clerk Mary Ann Twitty was fired Wednesday due to similar issues. The e-mails depicted several malicious jokes that were based on offensive stereotypes. This happened shortly before a weekend that honored the 50th anniversary of the civil rights march on Selma, which led to a change in voting laws. Selma represents a darker time in U.S. history where 50 years later the nation’s first black president delivered a speech on the same bridge among recent ugly months full of racially controversial events yet again.

Time for New York to Lift the Mixed Martial Arts Ban

New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo is seeking to reverse an existing state law regarding mixed martial arts (MMA). MMA was actually banned in New York, the only state in the nation to do so; this occurred when Sheldon Silver held the position of Speaker of the New York State Assembly. The action that Gov. Cuomo is currently contemplating would provide, among other things, a much needed boost to the economy of the Empire State. [more...]

NASA Admits That Winters are Going to Get Colder... Much Colder

Climate change has been a volatile issue for years, even amongst leading scientists and researchers from other disciplines. In his new book, Dark Winter: How the Sun is Causing a 30-Year Cold Spell, scientist John L. Casey, a former White House national space policy advisor, NASA headquarters consultant and space shuttle engineer, tells the truth about ominous changes taking place in the climate and the sun. Climatologist Casey thinks that last year's winter, described by USA Today as "one of the snowiest, coldest, most miserable on record" is going to be a regular occurrence over the coming decades. Casey asserts that there is mounting evidence that the Earth is getting cooler due to a decline in solar activity. He warns that a major alteration of global climate has already started and that at a minimum, it is likely to last 30 years. Casey predicts food shortages and civil unrest caused by those shortages due largely to governments not preparing for the issues that colder weather will bring. He also predicts that wickedly bitter winter temperatures will see demand for electricity and heating outstrip the supply. [more...]

This Week on Political Insiders

On this week's POLITICAL INSIDERS, we discussed John Kerry's still-very-much-alive presidential aspirations for 2016 and how this Iranian nuke deal fits into those plans; how President Obama and Secretary Kerry are desperate to make this deal; the Hillary e-mail fiasco; and the GOP "hitting the wall" after only two months in power. Watch our shows here: Sunday Part 1, Part 2, Part 3. Part 4. [more...]
