Radio Free Nation - Show Notes March 6, 2018

Broadcast started at 7:32 pm on March 6th, 2018

Hosts - Marty Owings and Katey DeCelle

The ancient greek philosopher Socrates once said that, “The unexamined life is NOT worth living.

I think what Socrates meant is that each of us needs to take a look deep inside ourselves and challenge our own beliefs and pre-conceived ideas. The more firmly planted those ideas are, the more we need to confront those biases. That we must continuously pursue wisdom, knowledge and eventually enlightenment.

This show may occasionally attempt to rise to that high and noble height.

What you can count on is a program that will challenge the notion of power. Whether it’s political power, white supremacy or the accepted conventions of society.

In between that, Katey and I will spend time looking at the latest political and social news, have a few guests in studio and hopefully break a few rules.

Here are the topics Katey and I covered.

First Segment - 15 minutes - The Administration and life in age Trump. Is Trump losing his grip?

Segment Break
PLAY THE - Slim Thug - Recession Rap
PLAY THE - Big Boppers Drop
Second Segment - 20 minutes - Gun Violence/Gun Control

From the Pioneer Press, and I Quote - “We’re extremely disappointed that Rep. Pinto has decided to abuse the rules of the House to call two gun control bills,” said Bryan Strawser, chairman of the Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus PAC. “His Gun Violence Restraining Order bill allows a citizen’s firearms to be confiscated without due process, while the universal background check legislation poses a significant burden upon law-abiding citizens and will do little to deter criminal misuse of firearms.”

Well here is the truth - Again, I’m quoting the Pioneer Press.

“The court petition would include such information as violations of other restraining orders; any history of threats of violence; any felony arrests, or misdemeanor stalking or domestic assault arrests; “the unlawful and reckless use, display, or brandishing of a firearm”; and any evidence of drug or alcohol abuse, weighed against any attempts at rehabilitation.”

“The court would require a “preponderance of the evidence” to issue the order — a lesser standard than the “beyond a reasonable doubt” standard which is required for criminal
convictions. The order’s duration, set by the court, could be anywhere from six months to two years.”

“Erin Zamoff, who you interviewed Katey, and is the head of Minnesota Moms Demand Action, a gun-safety advocacy group, said “both of these measures would help keep guns out of the hands of people with dangerous histories.” Both bills were tabled by the Republican controlled committee. Which essentially means - they may lay dormant again for years. And guess who else is attacking these bills Katey?

• HF 1669 would require criminal background checks for all gun sales. 
• HF 1605 would allow law enforcement and family members to petition a court to prohibit a specific person from possessing    

Third Segment - 15 minutes - "You Are A Damn Racist"

So by day this woman teaches social studies to middle school kids. By night, she has this podcast.

Here is some of what she was up to on her podcast; (From the Washington Post)

Her name is Dayanna Volitich - Vol-it-Tich

“In a podcast from Feb. 26, Volitich, 25, interviewed a guest who complained about diversity in schools and dismissed the idea that a “kid from Nigeria and a kid who came from Sweden are supposed to learn exactly the same” and have the “same IQ.”

“Volitich agreed and argued that “science” has proven some races are more intelligent than others, the website reported Saturday.
In that same podcast, Volitich, who teaches social studies at Crystal River Middle School, bragged about spouting her racist beliefs at the school and hiding her repugnant views from other teachers, administrators and parents.”

“When one of her guests suggested that white supremacists should become teachers in public schools, Volitich wholeheartedly agreed.”

“They don’t have to be vocal about their views, but get in there!” her guest said. “Be more covert and just start taking over those places.”
“Right,” she replied. “I’m absolutely one of them.”

Show Wrap up 10 minutes

Next Week on Radio Free Nation - We will investigate the Russia investigation. Call a random Politician, And Katey will share a favorite St.Patrick’s Day story.

For the entire Radio Free Nation Production team, I’m Marty Owings and she’s Katey DeCelle, saying so long for now and please remember the words of the great Rev King, who told us,

“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.
