National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Babies This Weekend

National Day of Remembrance for Unborn Children, September 12, 2015

The National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Babies  is taking place all around the country this weekend. There are several locations so hopefully if you can’t make it one day you can the other. So what is the National Day of Remembrance? It is a day where people go to cemeteries that have taken aborted babies and given them a proper burial. Too many of those tragic lives have just been tossed in the trash like everyday refuse.  This allows these lives at least to have the human dignity of being buried.

The National Day of Remembrance of Aborted Babies helps put into perspective the tragedy of abortion and the human costs of it. We are about sixty million when it comes to how many children have died via abortion. That number is way to high. It is time abortion was not justified by the state and given money to quack doctors to perform. It is time abortion was ended and not regulated.

The first one of these remembrance days was held in 2013 and they had 100 memorials back then. Today there is 164 memorial sites. These are basically vigils for the unborn, so there will be prayers, candle-lighting and I would gather those sharing their stories of their own abortion, people with their own grief.  Organizations like Silent No More Awareness, that helps women recover from their abortion by allowing them to speak out about their experience will be out there, along with Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, Priests for Life and Pro-Life Action League. They are all major sponsors of this event.

Even if you can’t participate in any of the events, you should continue to fight for the lives of the unborn. It is time we abolish abortion altogether, not regulate it. You cannot regulate what is already illegal.

 

 

Is Madison’s Becoming the Unofficial Sponsor for Third Parties?

Open Rebellion Radio0What started out as a single debate is developing into a series of debates. The debate of Tom Hoefling and Chris Keniston was one of the Open Rebellion Radio Network’s highest listened to shows.  Not only the day after the show when Madison’s has no other show taking place there were higher numbers than for the actual debate. Which is understandable, many people were interested but couldn’t listen to it at the time so they went back later and listened to it.

While the debate was fast approaching, two other groups came forward wanting to be a part of it. We told them that it was too close but that we would do a debate just for them. So now we have a second debate. Obviously, people are starting to look to Madison’s to get the word out about third parties that they can’t get elsewhere. And that is our goal, not just with third parties, but to report on things you can’t get elsewhere.

The third parties this year definitely have a chance of changing the course of this election. By more Americans’ seeking out third parties due to the overgrowing dissatisfaction of the main two parties, this election will look unlike any other before it. Third parties have a real chance to grow their bases this election cycle if they only grab the opportunity to do so. Of course, we would not ignore the main parties totally. We have had on our radio show, Lori Bartley who is a Republican. We haven’t had any Democratic leaders on our show, but not for the lack of trying, we are trying to get  Congressman Xavier Becerra and Assembly member Sebastian Ridley Thomas on our radio show. Both are from California and both are Democrats.

MadisonsCPCThe goal of Madison’s CPC and Open Rebellion Radio Network is not to eliminate the two party system per se, we believe that should be up to the people and if the people want it gone then so be it. But we do believe at the very least there needs to be greater participation in the political system and not just from Republicans and Democrats, but from those who are voiceless now. So if the Nail Biters of America wanted to create a party and they were able to get their people into elected office, then bravo to the Nail Biters! Our goal at Madison’s is to make sure people are heard.

So if more third parties should see Madison’s as their voice in their fight to bring constitutional conservatism back, well we would have to say, “Welcome to Madison’s!” After all, one of our Open Rebellion commercials tags us as the new home for constitutional conservatives. And when you’re right, you’re right.

And the Debate Goes On

3rd Party Debate with Tom Hoefling and Chris Keniston

Open Rebellion Welcomed Pro-Life Icon, Jill Stanek

jill-stanek-and-meOn September 6, 2016 Madisons CPC’s  Open Rebellion Radio Network welcomed Jill Stanek on their radio show with Danielle Pechette Graham and Dena Leichnitz.  It was an amazing conversation. Jill started out as your average pro-lifer but something horrible and tragic would take place that transformed her into  a staunch advocate of protecting unborn children.

Jill was working at Christ Hospital as a registered nurse and had been there for a year when she learned that there were abortions going on there. But not just any abortion, what was going on was basically infanticide. The children would not be aborted in utero but would often be born alive and then left to die. Jill held one of these children for forty five minutes and at that point she became pro-life in a way she never had before.

She talked about how children with birth defects whether it is Down Syndrome or children with severe heart defects are often given the only option of abortion to deal with the pregnancy but many parents are beginning to speak out about this: “Many parents are coming forward and saying these kids are a blessing and not something to be aborted.” Jill has been named as the national chairman of Susan B. Anthony’s List which Jill refers to as the opposite of Emily’s List for Democratic women. It is also different in another way, Susan B. Anthony was a real woman who had real accomplishments in securing rights for women. EMILY stands for Early Money Is Like Yeast. Which shows it is not about women, their rights but about securing money for the politicians they want in office, nothing else.

Jill talked about how we are winning the culture war when it comes to the pro-life vs. pro-choice side  of it. According to Jill the number of abortion clinics has decreased. At our all time high it was around 2176. Right now, it is about 728. We have passed approximately 334 pro life laws and abortions have gone down from 1.6 million to 1 million even. Even though that is still way too many, the overall progress is good. Jill confirmed more people are becoming pro-life. It won’t be much longer until abortion is a thing of the past. And while women may still abort their children should abortion become illegal, at least we won’t have the state justifying it any longer.

Listen to Jill on Madison’s Open Rebellion Radio Network at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/madisonradio and learn what you can do to make a difference in saving the life of a child.

 

 

Conservative Icon, Phyllis Schlafly Dies at 92

Phyllis Schlafly was anti-feminist before being anti-feminist was cool. She was a conservative icon and promoted traditional values long before they became known simply as “family values.” Phyllis Schlafly was 92 when she died.

Phyllis came to the rise in the 60’s due to her opposition to abortion rights and as mentioned earlier, feminism. She wrote a book called “A Choice, Not an Echo.” which was as NBC News referred to it: “A call to arms for conservatives and an argument for the 1964 Republican candidacy of Barry Goldwater.”  Phyllis strongly opposed the Equal Rights Amendment and many people believe she is largely the reason it didn’t pass ratification.  There are few women who are more despised by the Left than Phyllis but she never let that deter her from her work.

Phyllis Schlafly is credited with giving rise to the conservative movement in the late 20th century. The New York Times describes her followers as “foot soldiers for Reagan.”  They go on to say ” The conservative theorist and organizer Paul Weyrich said that ‘Mrs. Schlafly dressed up the conservative movement for success at a time when absolutely no one thought we could win.'”

Phyllis Schlafly called Donald Trump, the last great hope for America. I guess we will see.

Young, Black Woman Killed by Planned Parenthood

creeirwin4

A young woman by the name of Cree Erwin was killed by Planned Parenthood. This is nothing new for Planned Parenthood. The fact that she is Black is even less of a rarity. Cree Erwin was 24 when she was killed by an abortionist.

She died just three days after her abortion. The complications were so bad from the abortion that she had to go to the emergency room. Once she was there, she ended up dying a few hours later. She died on June 30, 2016. No doubt you didn’t read about her death in the mainstream press because such things are covered up by those in power.

Laura Castleman, who prescribed some medicine following the abortion of Ms. Erwin, though we not sure if she did the actual abortion as well, has a history of other abortion-related injuries. “Castleman’s Drug Control Location License for the Kalamazoo Planned Parenthood lapsed on January 31, 2016. In Michigan, medical providers must obtain a Drug Control Location License for every facility where they routinely dispense drugs.” (Life News)

If Castleman’s license is indeed “lapsed” it is confusing why she is still prescribing medication to anyone at the clinic. Castleman has also been involved in other abortion-related deaths at other clinics as well in the cities of Ann Arbor and Kalamazoo. All of these were Planned Parenthoods that Castleman worked at. Planned Parenthood who is supposed to provide “safe and legal” abortions has been caught killing and injuring other women in the past, the most famous being 18-year-old Holly Patterson who died in 2003 from the abortion drug RU486 dispensed by a Planned Parenthood clinic.

Cree is just the most recent of abortion deaths. “A complaint has been filed by Operation Rescue against the Kalamazoo Planned Parenthood, seeking a revocation of its facility license that permits it to conduct abortions. Meanwhile, a homicide investigation conducted by the Battle Creek Police Department remains open pending the release of Erwin’s autopsy report, which may not be available for weeks or months.”  (Life News)

Even if there is an investigation there is no guarantee this case will go to trial. There is even less chance that if it does that the clinic will be closed down or the abortionist will go to prison and serve any serious time for it. It is about the slaughter of women, especially Black women who seem to have a higher death rate for abortion than White women since they undergo more abortions, does not go unnoticed. It is time to speak out for these women and it is time that the pro-choice movement took responsibility for the carnage they are producing. Until that comes it will be the pro-life side that will have to speak out for women like Cree.

 

 

 

Herb Alpert Foundation Donates 10.1 million to LACC

Herb AlpertNowadays community colleges get a bum rap, but they are often the door for people carving out better lives for themselves. Whether it is going on to a four-year to complete a Bachelor’s Degree or getting a certificate in a certain industry to start a new occupation. Community colleges are often the link between poverty and becoming middle class. Not only do they help out in terms of educating the workforce but they supply opportunities that people may not get otherwise. Back in 2011, the Anthropology club raised enough funds to send the club to Africa. While most study abroad experiences focus more on European countries, the professor in attendance, Brian Bartelt felt it was important to give these students an experience they wouldn’t have anywhere else-visiting the African continent.

So when people run down the community college experience it is because they haven’t had one. Herb Alpert, who is a renowned trumpeter, also believes it will be beneficial in helping others in their careers.  According to the Los Angeles Times, Herb is quoted as saying: “LACC is a gem of an institution,” Alpert said regarding the donation. “The biggest motivation was helping kids who don’t have the financial energy to go to a major college. At LACC, they’ve nurtured thousands of dedicated students every year. My brother went there. My ex-partner [record producer] Lou Adler went there. I’ve visited the school. It’s alive. It’s kickin’.

What Herb may not know and maybe surprised to find out is, by going to LACC, those kids better their chances of going to UCLA. This is taken from the LACC Ralph Bunche Scholars College program page: UCLA

Yep, that is me with the “necklace” around my neck and in the purple shirt

All students who are part of the LACC Scholars Program are automatically part of the UCLA Transfer Alliance Program. Scholars who complete six honors classes in the Scholars Program are given priority admission to UCLA. 79% of  Scholars were admitted to UCLA in 2011 as opposed to 30 % non-honors students accepted at UCLA. So while many think like Herb Alpert “Maybe we can help open the door to students who are financially challenged,” he said, “and don’t have an opportunity to go to a UCLA.” The truth is by supporting LACC, you may have just sent someone to UCLA.  [Note: The author is a recipient of UCLA Transfer Alliance Program they have at LACC and as it is noted, was able to get into UCLA in 2012 and graduate in 2015. It does work!] 

This sizable donation not only will allow more students to attend LACC tuition-free, but it will be the largest donation given to a community college in the history of Southern California,” he [Robert Schwartz] said. “And it’s the second-largest gift in the history of the state.” (ibid). There is always a budget shortfall when it comes to community colleges but this will help an additional 75 people get a music degree.  The free tuition will start in 2017. Hopefully, this is will motivate other people to give to their community colleges as well.

Community colleges are where people go to change their lives. Give to community colleges.

Horoscopes for August 18-24, 2016

The following horoscopes are only for fun and you shouldn’t base any real life decisions on them. Just read them and have fun:

Aries: Work will be filled with tension this week. You will be tempted to tell them to ram it! Don’t, you will still need them for a reference.

Taurus:  Your Taurus will need to go in for repairs. Don’t accept the first guy’s offer, they are full of bull. Leave it with the third guy, he is not trying to rip you off.

Gemini:  Things are identical to last week. Except this week, you will break up with your cheating boyfriend.

Cancer:  The reason you are so crabby this week is because you lent your friend, your Taurus and they wrecked it, Aries is driving you crazy at work and Gemini won’t shut up about her boyfriend. Take a break from all of them and you will be fine.

 

Leo:  Things are roaring at a nice clip for you.  Work is going well. You and your girlfriend are talking marriage and you beat you nephew on Call of Duty, granted it is the first Call of Duty, but it still counts!

Virgo:  You will be starting a virginal time of your life. New house, new job, new significant other.

Libra:  Your life is on an even keel. Which means it is super boring. There is nothing new or exciting happening to you. You get up most mornings and wish someone would shoot you already. But don’t worry, it is so far downhill, it cannot get any worse either.

 

Scorpio:  You might have to bring your stinger out this week.  Leo and Virgo are bragging about how great their lives are, Libra is depressing with his life story and no one cares that your Gemini girlfriend just broke up with you! Cheating! Ha! She was the one that was cheating!

Stephen AmellSagittarius:  This whole week you will keep watching episodes of Arrow. You will also sign up for archery classes and get a green suit. Stephen Amell will take out a restraining order on you.

Capricorn:  Stephen Amell will ask you out, but you tell him, no, you already have someone. Besides, you see him enough from your kid watching Arrow 24/7. He finds out you are friends with that Sagittarius nutjob who is stalking him. Don’t worry you will never hear from him again. In the meantime, work is going really well for you.

 

Aquarius:  Since you are always thirsty for water, you have broken down and ordered Sparkletts. The Sparklettt’s guy is really hot, sort of reminds you of Stephen Amell. He asks you out. You agree. Just don’t tell him about your Sagittarius and Capricorn buddies because it really is Amell from his time off from Arrow and if you tell him, you will never see him again.

Pisces:  Things are fishy for you right now. Your friends are not talking to you right now because you think Aquaman is way better than Green Arrow. Your fish, Arthur Curry, died and SeaWorld called, they said they hired someone else.
