Politics Done Right with Egberto Willies Tune in Monday 9:00 PM on KPFT 90.1 FM (Houston Area) Live stream: http://KPFT.org (Entire USA) - Podcasts: Call (713) 526-5738 to talk to me on air. 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...]

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.

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

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...]

Politics Done Right on Coffee Party Radio – Ill-treatment of refugees will haunt us 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 July 26th, 2014 Many Americans and their politicians should be embarrassed with their behavior with regards to the refugees on the Texas border. If someday because of circumstances Americans are forced to migrate they should hope that the evil displayed against many of those immigrant refugees would not be directed towards them. It is so easy to forget that as this land was populated by Europeans, it was just taken. Those refugees at the Texas border attempting to immigrate here for economic and political reason just want a chance, not to take the land but to be part of what was created here.

This week’s show  July 21th, 2014 Return to moral policies I spent Wednesday through Sunday at Netroots Nation 2014 in Detroit Michigan. It was a wonderful experience. It was a learning experience. The Netroots Nation convention is the amalgamation of Liberal bloggers from throughout the country. It is a place where many politicians go to schmooze with Liberal bloggers with the expectation of getting coverage and getting their message out. Most importantly it is a convention for bloggers that communicate electronically to meet in the flesh, to party, to exchange ideas, to plan, and to network in order to form cooperating groups, actions, and alliances. This Netroots Nation convention was special. It was held in a city held hostage by the American Plutocracy. It was held in a city where a group … [Read more...]

This week’s show  July 14th, 2014 A suit & immigration, a failed GOP Last week all around was a tough week politically. Political dysfunction remained paramount. Today’s program will not entertain false equivalences. The current political dysfunction for all practical purposes is one sided. Republicans decided that they were going to live up to what has become their tenet. And what is their tenet? Their tenet is that government does not work. They are doing a good job in ensuring  it does not work. We will discuss two issues. The first will be Congress’ suit against the President. The second will be the immigration/refuge emergency on the US - Mexico border. Today’s guest will be Sarah Slamen. She will appear later in the show after she completes her weekly grassroots call. Who is Sarah … [Read more...]
