  1. This is a clip from my daily blog in response to your interview with Carl Stokes. Please note that I’ve identified the two largest areas of fraud and corruption that remain unrecognized publically….please pursue this on your show!

    BELOW IS AN EXAMPLE OF HOW COMMUNITY ACTIVISM CAN BRING CHANGE. WE NEED TO CONTINUE THE DEMANDS FOR ACCOUNTABILITY IN OUR CITY AND STATE GOVERNMENT AND I WILL NOTE, THERE WAS NO SPECIFIC MENTION OF BUSINESS TAX CREDITS WHERE WE ALL KNOW THERE IS TREMENDOUS FRAUD. AS ADVOCATES OF B CORPORATIONS AND NON-PROFIT GRANTING AGENCIES PUSH THEIR AGENDA, WE KNOW THAT THESE ORGANIZATIONS SIMPLY EXPAND THE CORRUPTION AND ACCOUNTABILITY PROBLEM. I ALSO WANT TO SHOUT OUT FOR MARC STEINER WHO HAS BEEN A LONGTIME ADVOCATE FOR JUSTICE IN THE CITY! HIS SHOW IS ON WEAA – MORGAN STATE UNIVERSITY PUBLIC MEDIA…..DONATE TO THIS PUBLIC STATION!

    I WOULD LIKE TO WRAP UP MY SHOUT OUT AGAINST THE ‘NEW ECONOMY’ FOR NOW BY GIVING THIS ONE ADDITIONAL EXAMPLE. THE STATE OF ILLINOIS IS GROUND ZERO FOR THIS ‘NEW ECONOMY’. IT IS NO COINCIDENCE THAT OBAMA COMES FROM ILLINOIS……IT IS NO COINCIDENCE THAT RAHM EMANUEL, OBAMA’S CHIEF OF STAFF AND NOW MAYOR OF CHICAGO IS THERE, AND IT IS NO COINCIDENCE THAT BILL CLINTON, FOUNDER OF THIS THIRD WAY MOVEMENT TOWARDS THIS ‘NEW ECONOMY’ CAME TO CHICAGO JUST RECENTLY TO APPLAUD EMANUEL’S DEVELOPMENT PLANS FOR CHICAGO. THIRD WAY SEES ILLINOIS AS A MODEL FOR THEIR NEW SOCIETY, JUST AS WALL STREET SEES ITSELF AS THE MODEL FOR EDUCATION, AND MARYLAND SEES ITSELF AS THE MODEL FOR HEALTHCARE. ALL LEADING TO MEGA-GLOBAL INDUSTRIES THAT WILL CRUSH THE PEO

    SO AS EMANUEL PROMOTES HUGE PUBLIC PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS THAT GIVE CORPORATIONS HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS OF TAXPAYER MONEY TO CREATE INFRASTRUCTURE THAT THE PUBLIC WILL THEN PAY THOSE PRIVATE COMPANIES TO USE, THE GOVERNOR OF ILLINOIS ANNOUNCES THE MOST RADICAL CUT OF PUBLIC SECTOR PENSION BENEFITS AND WAGES, PUBLIC SERVICES, AND STATE CUTS TO ENTITLEMENTS LIKE MEDICARE AND MEDICAID TO PAY FOR IT. MEANWHILE, THIRD WAY DICK DURBIN, ILLINOIS SENATOR AND SECOND IN LINE FOR LEADERSHIP IN THE SENATE IS ON BOARD FOR THE FEDERAL BUDGET ‘GRAND BARGAIN’ THAT WILL MAKE THE SAME CUTS TO THOSE SAME PROGRAMS AT THE FEDERAL LEVEL….AGAIN, TO PAY FOR THIS ‘NEW ECONOMY’. SO AS THESE THIRD WAY POLITICIANS SAY THEY ARE PROTECTING ENTITLEMENTS AND POVERTY PROGRAMS….THEY ARE WORKING TO CUT THEM AS FAST AS ANY REPUBLICAN.

    WE CAN REVERSE THIS BY VOTING OUT INCUMBANTS!
