“The Difference between Black & White”

Monday, 5/15 at 7:00pm EST.

Description:Strongmen regimes have been identified as political regimes that have a totalitarian dictator or autocrat seeking to rule by fear and threat. These leaders are typically void of any democratic philosophy, although they may use a democratic structure to hide their authoritarian rule. Most notable strongmen regimes are Russian President, Vladimir Putin; Egyptian President, Abdel Fattah al-Sisi; Turkish President, Tayyip Erdogan, and North Korea’s President, Kim Jung-un to name a few. Donald Trump idolizes these individuals and is seeking to turn his administration and this country into a mirror of these autocratic governments. So, the question becomes, if Barack Obama displayed these strongman characteristics and sought to harness complete power under his authority, would congress, the media, and the Rust Belt White America respond in the same manner as they have with Donald Trump? Can a black man use the same tactics as a white man and get the same results? My guests, Ret. Lt. Col Warren Christopher, and Dr. Johnny B. Hill join me to discuss the reality of Power – The Difference between Blacks & Whites.



“Death Panel”

Monday, 5/8 at 7pm EST.

Description: Former VP Candidate Sarah Palin once suggested that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) would create “death panels” because “bureaucrats” would decide who was worthy of health care. She called that such system was “downright evil!” The Republican controlled Congress, passed TrumpCare that would indeed create those Death Panels that Sarah Palin said would occur. She just didn’t think it would be the Republican healthcare plan. Well, with $800Billion cut from Medicaid and $600Billion in tax cuts given to the rich, babies with Down Syndrome, Asthma, Cancer, or any other disease, may end up, on that Death Panel. My guests tonight: Dr. Marilyn McPherson-Corder, Commissioner Greg Stewart, and Dr. Jermane Bond discuss the impact on Black America.



“First 100”

Monday, 5/1 at 7:00pm EST.

Description:One Hundred days have never been so long. Every year someone says, this year has gone by so fast. Yet, these first 100 days of the Trump Administration actually feels like two or three years; nothing about it, has been quick. Trumps 100 days has not had any legislation accomplishments or created any jobs, and Trump proclaims his first 100 is greater than any others. Unfortunately, the fact is, that Trump has the lowest rating of any President ever. Why should anyone believe this man? My guest California State Senator Steve Bradford, SkillTarget Co-Founder Brandon Andrews, and Principle of Caruthers Consulting, Rebekah Caruthers join me to explain why America’s credibility is at stake.
