This week’s show April 14th, 2014 Bloggers must replace discredited traditional news media Have you ever wondered why when you watch CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC they are invariably featuring the same news? Have you ever wondered why most of the issues that have material effect on your life are never really covered? Have you noticed that the news of today is shallow and un-researched? This is all by design. An uninformed, a misinformed, an ill-informed populace is one that can be controlled. The arbiters of our news domain are mostly discredited. Luckily good reputable bloggers are starting to assert themselves. They are providing quality prescient news to their followers. They are making a difference. Going forward they must take the mantle if the reversal of a poorly informed cit … [Read more...]

Politics Done Right with Egberto Willies Saturday 12:00 Noon Central Call (646) 929-2495 to talk to me live.  Listen On Computer/Smartphone Live/Podcast: HERE This week’s show Why Is The Economy Better Under Democrats? A few weeks ago Chuck Todd interviewed a Princeton economist who did some research on economic performance based on the president in office. Something many new empirically became obvious. Specifically, the economy does substantially better under Democratic Presidents than under Republican Presidents irrespective of which party holds Congress. When I watched the interview I was perplexed. Inasmuch as the empirical evidence was irrefutable, both Chuck Todd and the Princeton economists attempted to waiver in their conclusions. From a scientific perspective one wants to eliminate the possibility that this is just a random set of events. I recorded the interview but did n … [Read more...]

This puts our entire democracy up for sale to the highest bidder. There are organizations throughout the nation building grassroots movements to amend the constitution in order to fix this constitutional aberration. One of the most successful ones is Move To Amend., After the Supreme Court ruling, an affiliate of Move To Amend, Houston Area Move To  Amend (Facebook) effected a successful protest in Houston. I am honored to have three of their leaders discuss the corrosive nature of money in our body politic, the apathy that it has caused, and the solutions.

Coffee Party Radio: Politics Done Right- Koch Brothers Respond To Harry Reid Exposure Sat 12-1PM CST

Politics Done Right with Egberto Willies Saturday 12:00 Noon Central Call (646) 929-2495 to talk to me live.  Listen On Computer/Smartphone Live/Podcast: HERE This week’s show Koch Brothers Respond To Harry Reid Exposure This week was a bad week for our democracy. The Supreme Court removed the aggregate limit of dollars that anyone can spend in any election cycle. Only around 646 people reached that limit in the 2011-2012 election cycle. In other words, the Supreme Court ruled that those 646 people’s right of free speech was denied. This makes the smoking out of wealthy donors that are corrupting the body politic that more important. Senator Harry Reid has begun the process by calling out the Koch Brothers on the floor of the Senate. That seemed to have hurt Charles Koch’s feelings. He penned an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal in which he referred to those who do not see the world as a plutocrat’s domain as collectivists. Let’s talk about that. Give me a call.

Politics Done Right with Egberto Willies Saturday 12:00 Noon Central/1:00 PM Eastern Call In, talk and/or Listen: (646) 929-2495 Listen On Computer/Smartphone Live/Podcast: HERE This week’s show Can Obamacare be the winning message in November? This was a great week. Contrary to the naysayers, Obamacare crossed the 6 million people mark. This does not include all those that received healthcare for the first time via the Medicaid Expansion to Obamacare nor the 3 million plus young people remaining on their parent’s insurance. This is a good and moral thing. Peoples’ lives are being saved. Obamacare should be a winning message in November for any politician who is honest about the law. It is time to stop cowering and be bold and support a policy that helps the poor and the working middle class. What do you think? This week I interviewed Ben Cohen, founder of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, on Move To Amend Reports with cohost Laura Bonham. He is one example of millions of one percent-ers tha … [Read more...]

Politics Done Right with Egberto Willies Saturday 12:00 Noon Central/1:00 PM Eastern Call In, talk and/or Listen: (646) 929-2495 Listen On Computer/Smartphone Live/Podcast: HERE This week’s show Are you ready for President Rand Paul? Many will balk at this this. It is important to leave the echo chambers. One must explore all sides. It prevents surprises. There is some posturing and fighting on the right flank of the Republican Party. It is rather amusing. However it foretells quite a bit. It is the war of words and policy between Rand Paul and Ted Cruz.  The Washington Post conservative blogger Jennifer Rubin decided to chime in with her piece Ted Cruz 2, Rand Paul 0. It is a fear that Rand Paul may be breaking through. I think he is actually making the right moves. America has become shallow on information. His moves could make him President. What say you? Give me a call. My Blog Posts Of The Week Scott Brown Bashed Obamacare To GOP State Rep Who Told Him It Saved Hi … [Read more...]

Coffee Party Radio: Politics Done Right – Paul Ryan’s attack on inner city poor affects us all Sat 12-1PM CST

Politics Done Right with Egberto Willies Saturday 12:00 Noon Central/1:00 PM Eastern Call In, talk and/or Listen: (646) 929-2495 Listen On Computer/Smartphone Live/Podcast: HERE This week’s show Paul Ryan's attack on inner city poor affects us all A few days ago Paul Ryan allowed his deeper thoughts to escape his mouth. He believes poverty is an inner city problem. Worse, he thinks it is caused by culture. Why is this important? It is important not only because of false negative racial overtones. It is important because it misses the vast majority of the poor and the poor in waiting. That demographic should give him pause. It looks nothing like the inner city. Using dog whistles to maintain power has a breaking point. Ultimately politicians that express policies that level the playing feel and give all access to success will win. We must make this sooner rather than later. Give me a call. Let’s talk. … [Read more...]

Obamacare makes you richer?   The mainstream media has been providing a warmongering narrative about the Ukraine crisis. The journalist that broke the Iran Contra story, Robert Parry, has a more believable take based on critical observations and analysis. Many on the Right have been misinforming Americans about all the ills of Obamacare. Even as all data being released have been a net positive in the aggregate, the attacks continue. This week it was reported that Obamacare was mostly responsible for the increase in income and spending by Americans. Give me a call. Let’s talk.

Coffee Party Radio: Politics Done Right – False Obamacare Ads Will Be Fatal To The GOP Sat 12-1PM CST

Politics Done Right with Egberto Willies Saturday 12:00 Noon Central/1:00 PM Eastern Call In, talk and/or Listen: (646) 929-2495 Listen On Computer/Smartphone Live/Podcast: HERE This week’s show False Obamacare Ads Will Be Fatal To The GOP Over the last several weeks Koch Brothers funded Americans for Prosperity (AFP) has been releasing false Obamacare ads about chronically sick people hurt by Obamacare. Each story has been subsequently debunked. While this false advertising may work in the short term it will ultimately be fatal to the GOP as Americans realize they were used as a weapon against themselves. America is a free country. Free speech ensures that we can say almost anything without consequence. As a society we have decided on exceptions to free speech. You cannot yell ‘fire’ in a theatre when there is no fire. You cannot yell ‘bomb’ at an airport when there is no bomb. Why, because at that point your free speech infringes on the safety of your fellow citizens. Our corporate gove … [Read more...]
