Once you have a taste of truthful reporting you never go back to mainstream contrived corporate media.

These hosts bash Republicans and Democrats equally because they know both sides are illuminati bought puppets out to screw us.

Give alternative news sources a chance before you knock them. Download these shows to your MP3 players and listen on your way to work or whatever. All you need from mainstream media is breaking news and traffic/weather. You can listen to all these shows on your smart phone as well.

Exposes US Gov Corruption and Global Wide Illuminati Plots

(Skip around, you'll learn something useful)

Exposes Wallstreet and absolutely teaches you how to protect your money from the crooked banksters

http://www.philsgang.com/pgfreeshowarchives.a...

Exposes Secret/Ancient Knowledge Suppressed In Modern History Books and suppressed medical cures/prevention for diseases like cancer, etc. This guy is a medical doctor.

Often Exposes NASA Disinformation and Possible Offworld Intelligence -Search "Coast to Coast 2012 Shows" on Youtube and listen or use downloader -This is one way /Or get a CC Witness radio and record AM from your local affiliate. There is CIA disinfo injected from some of the guests but you learn how to identify it after a while by researching the guests' backgrounds. The hosts are simply great.

Connects Bible Predictions/Prophecy to Modern Day Events -How Illuminati uses bible prophecy to plan false flag disasters eg. earthquakes, etc. There could also be some CIA brainwashing here as well from some of the guest lecturers but they give a heads up of what to look out for/predict down the road. The host does a good job of teaching about the bible and does not fear political correctness.

These radio hosts should do a show together or at least make guest appearences on each others shows. They all value truth and liberty in their own way.

Here's my take on it. Don't be afraid to speak out as we are all on some type of list by now:

You have to understand that free speech on the net is about to be clamped down on in America.-mainland China style.

Check out the latest drone technology. Drones don't give a sh!t what color you are or where you're from.

From mosquitos to microscopic nano drones they're going to be everywhere. Hey look at the bright side, at least the drones will replace those noisy peeping tom helicopters.

http://aviationintel.com/2012/07/09/tylers-10...

Seriosly though, why the hell isn't anyone saying anything? Just like the street cameras and now buble sidewalk cameras, snuck in directly next to them. Look at those 360 degree pan zoom sidewalk cameras being snuk in all of a sudden on top of the lamp posts.

What do sidewalk cameras have to do with traffic flow again?

Not to mention all the high curbed traffic dividing islands being put in so we can't avoid future TSA checkpoints.

Drone Picture #3 looks almost like the sphere drone from the move "They Live"

http://www.humblelibertarian.com/2013/03/they...

And who are you little fella/drone, come to show them where I am?-not nice. Lol...classic movie clip.

Americans are fed up with the clownish UN globalists running the federal government now.

Look around you ...is this what you really are going to put up with. Seriously?

Any people-to-people visa issued must meet certain requirements established by the U.S. Department of Treasury. They include:

Each traveler must have a "full-time schedule of educational" activities that include interactions with Cubans.

"The exchanges must also advance purposeful travel by enhancing contact with the Cuban people and/or supporting civil society in Cuba, and/or the exchanges must promote independence from Cuban authorities."

They cannot include "transactions related to activities that are primarily tourist-oriented."
.
.
.
according to the definition, B&J qualified for this type of visa, who's to say that they didn't have an itinerary full of educational activities?
they are, in fact, artists, and so it's plausible that they were there to meet other musicians.

I disagree.
the untapped musical talent in Cuba is very tempting for American musicians, as well as musicians from around the world.
(to think otherwise is incredibly naive)
.
.
I'm not saying that Beyonce or Jay-Z are great musicians, and in fact both of them could learn quite a bit about ACTUAL music from a trip to Cuba.
.
.
.
Neither of these people are especially political, so to assume that they went to Cuba for political reasons is ridiculous.

If they wanted to learn about good music (Salsa) they should have gone to Venezuela or Puerto Rico
