This week’s show   September 1st, 2014 Should Middle Class be sharpening their pitchforks yet? Today is labor day. It is a day to honor those who are the real heroes of the American economy. Unfortunately American workers are being abused and taken advantage of. As they have become more productive, they have not shared in the spoils. This can be directly attributed to the decline in unions and a purchased government that affords the plutocrats and capitalists reign over the entire economy. The American worker has become but a commodity. A commoditized worker creates a declining middle class and an impoverished nation. How much longer will the working poor and middle class acquiesce to said treatment? Should the middle class be sharpening their pitchforks. You can also find previous episodes on … [Read more...]

Stream Live: - Podcast: This week’€™s show Obama said No Strategy on ISIL in Syria, refreshing August 30th, 2014 The mainstream media is hyperventilating again. The President says he does not yet have a strategy on ISIL, ISIS in Syria. Currently the American military is doing a masterful job of containing their expansion in Iraq that may affect “American interests.” To simply go to all out war whether mostly by air would be just as irresponsible as Bush’s Iraq war was. It is wonderful to have a sane thoughtful President for a change. This is my take. What are your thoughts? Let’s  talk. I will also be following our hash-tag #PoliticsDoneRight on Twitter.

This week’s show  August 25th, 2014 Is the Democratic Party too timid Last week I asked the questions If Rand Paul encroaching on Hillary Clinton’s turf. The question maybe should have been, what is Hillary Clinton’s turf? Is her turf the turf the Democratic Party once had? Is that what Hillary Clinton represents? Many continue to believe it is crazy to take Rand Paul seriously. Many believe his past civil rights statements and faux pas made it impossible to take him as a serious presidential contender. There is a vacuum. There is a populous vacuum in the country that needs to be filled. Elitist Liberals and rank and file Democrats as late as a few hours before this show continue to claim that America will never support a guy who wants to shrink government as Rand Paul does. To that I ask a … [Read more...]

Politics Done Right on Coffee Party Radio – Media is a tool used to malign black men for a reason Sat 12-1PM CST

Stream Live: - Podcast: This week’€™s show Media is a tool used to malign black men for a reason? August 23rd, 2014 The media will be leaving Ferguson, Missouri in the next few days. They would have exposed a cancer in yet another American city. The question is what part have they played in growing that cancer over time as well as with their current presence. There is a purpose why the media has made ‘the other’, people not in the majority yet, people of color and specifically black men to be ‘personas non grata’. There is a reason. There is a purpose. We must go beyond that reason, defy, and come together really as one nation. What are your thoughts? Let’s  talk. I will also be following our hash-tag #PoliticsDoneRight on Twitter.

This week’s show  August 11th, 2014 Rand Paul encroaching Hillary Clinton’s turf Narratives matter. Most importantly they metastasize over time. In watching Rand Paul over the last several months it is evident that he is running for president of the United States. Many rightly see him as a deeply flawed candidate. That notwithstanding, Rand Paul is building a narrative for himself that will appeal to many. Too many professional political watchers are discounting this man as they fail to really take the temperature of America. Rand Paul was one of the first politicians out with a bold statement in a Times op-ed. Who would ever think that Rand Paul would be leading the narrative on a social justice issue concerning Black men and referenced in a piece with a Black anchor and a civil rights leader? … [Read more...]

August 16th, 2014 Will this be just another black man executed by police or will we finally do something about it? Yesterday Michael Eric Dyson admonished President Obama for a rather neutral statement on the execution of Michael Brown. Is it time for the President to engage? One of my previous CNN iReport colleagues and friend David J White thinks so. He wrote on one of my posts the following. David J White Even with all the nefarious shit Obama has to endure via the#RacistGOP, he should have further engaged the nation on egregious police brutality on African Americans. Over the period of a month, we've witnessed: Black woman being pummeled by a CHIPs officer, a group of #RacistRogueCopsin NYC, choke a man to death, and now the shooting death of an unarmed teen in #Ferguson. The time for #PBO … [Read more...]

Politics Done Right on KPFT 90.1 FM – Wendy Davis was written off much too early – Monday 9 PM CST

This week’s show  August 11th, 2014 Wendy Davis was written off much too early For too long local Democrats have been whispering concerns about Wendy Davis’ real chances of winning the Texas governorship. Republicans and national leaders of both parties all but discounted her. After-all, Greg Abbot was over 50% in most polls. Funny thing has happened. Greg Abbott has fallen under 50%. Most importantly, all the groundwork that Wendy Davis, Battleground Texas, and other local groups have been doing is probably not yet reflected in the polls because nobody is following these new voters. Things are changing. Let’s get busy. Give me a call at (713) 526-5738. That is 713-526-KPFT. Remember you can also send me a tweet to @egbertowillies. Let us engage. It is politics done right.

August 9th, 2014 The big story this week is our reentry into Iraq. Did the President do the right thing? Is it only America’s responsibility to police the world? Should other countries that depend more on the oil from that region be more engaged? Those are questions that must be answered. The burden of war seemed to be placed more on  Americans than anyone else. But is it our leaders continual intervention that makes that our reality? But before we get into Iraq, I want to talk about the minimum wage debate. This week an unlikely person weighed in with a welcomed position. Joe Scarborough made finally owned up to reality.

A large number of American students are saddled with debt before they have even begun their careers.

Politics Done Right on Coffee Party Radio – Israel’s indiscriminate bombing hurts all Sat 12-1PM CST

Politics Done Right,KPFT,90.1 FM,Egberto Willies,Coffee Party,pdr

Politics Done Right with Egberto Willies Saturday 12:00 Noon Central Call (646) 929-2495 to talk to me live. Stream Live: - Podcast: This week’€™s show Israel’s indiscriminate bombing hurts all August 2nd, 2014 I don’t have to tell you that the carnage in Gaza has gotten from bad to worse. The loss of life and the destruction of property is completely asymmetric. The death toll in Gaza is north of 1,665. Most of the dead are civilians. The Israeli death toll is under 70. Most of the dead are soldiers. Less than 10 are civilians. The argument has been made that rockets shot by the terrorist organization Hamas are enough justifications. Then, the tunnels are also justification as terrorists use them to come into Israel to kill Jews. Yet the death toll numbers are probative. Israel has the Iron Dome that has been quite successful in protecting its cities. Does that not buy Israel time to be more surgical and methodical in its actions to find tunnels used for weapons and terrorism. Does … [Read more...]
