The Sound of Freedom Returns to RBN! 10/26/14

10/22/14

Hello everyone Those of you that have followed the show for the past couple of years could have probably guessed back in August when I said I was taking a break that I wouldn’t be gone for long. After two months and a great talk with John Stadtmiller, I feel refreshed, and excited to be back on the airwaves. If you were listening to RBN this past Sunday morning, then you would have heard the first live Sound of Freedom since August. Unfortunately the show was not recorded, so there in no archive for the 10/19 show. Don’t beat yourself up about it if you missed it. This week’s show is sure to get you fired up about life as I will be sharing the wisdom of Orison Marden and others in the first hour, and I’ll be joined by the one and only Mike King of Tomatobubble.com in the second hour to cover current events and anything else listeners want to talk about. So tune in! Same place and same channel as before – This Sunday, October 26 from 9-11 am EST The Sound of Freedom will be ringing live at Republicbroadcasting.org

I’ll “see” YOU there! RBNlogo

Thoughts of the Day – Scared of Ebola?

10/2/14

Hello everyone!

Is it just me or does it seem like people are going crazy?  Escalating racial tensions, wide open borders, the boogeyman (ISIS), and now EBOLA IN AMERICA? I don’t know about you, but I have my pro mask on while writing this, and I plan on carrying out NBC (Nuclear Biological Chemical) training with my family and farm animals every hour on the hour for the next 4 days! The sky is falling! Please understand how sarcastic I’m being. In all seriousness, here’s some inspirational thoughts in regards to will power and disease. Be more than you are. Do better than you can. Rise above and go beyond what others are willing to let you off the hook for.

Growing Sesame | A Coastal Gardener’s Journal

Last summer I grew sesame.

While visiting the Magnolia Springs Public Library’s Seed Library (Magnolia Springs, AL), I checked out a packet of sesame. I researched how to grow them and took on this project. I knew that I would not harvest a great amount of sesame, since my garden would be smal,l but I was determined to experiment.

These seeds were packed by the Monticello historic garden center in Virginia. Thomas Jefferson was one of the most influential gardeners and horticulturalists in America. He traveled about Europe and studied the gardening traditions of many of the countries. Bringing these traditions back to America, he cultivated most of what we grow in America today. The originial gardens are fully restored and tourable at historic Monticello.

Sesame is a broad leaf summer-growing plant. It grows to 4-6 feet tall. It flowers at about 35 days and produces pods that contain up to 70 seeds. At about 120-150 days the plant dries and the pods are ready for harvest. (1) On a large scale, combines do the harvest. On a small scale, like my porch garden, hand harvesting will do.

Here are just 10 evidence-based medicinal properties of this food-medicine:

Subconscious Manipulators: Take Your Life Off Autopilot – Waking Times

Each of us draws comfort from the decisions we make, sure in the knowledge that we are individuals, masters of our own destiny. We mock those that aren’t as under the thumb, as easily lead, or weak. Underlying this attitude is the principle that no person or system has the right to influence or determine the free will of another. This may be true, but what if this truth was naive; that even the strong-minded could not trust the direction their thoughts were taking them?

Can Authorities Cut Off Utilities And Pose As Repairmen To Search A Home? : NPR

“The theory behind this search is scary,” says George Washington University law professor Stephen Saltzburg, author of a leading criminal law text. “It means the government can cut off your service, intentionally, and then pretend to be a repair person, and then while they’re there, they spend extra time searching your house. It is scary beyond belief.”

And it’s not just Internet service that could be cut off. Cable TV lines, plumbing or water lines — the list in the modern world is a long one.

Neuroscientists Are Fed Up With the Brain Training Industry | Motherboard

It seems that actual neuroscientists are pretty fed up with this burgeoning industry and, in a open-letter released this week by the Stanford Center on Longevity and the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, a group of 70 brain researchers offer a pointed critique of an industry that they say is misrepresenting the neuroscience community and neuroscience in general.

“We object to the claim that brain games offer consumers a scientifically grounded avenue to reduce or reverse cognitive decline when there is no compelling scientific evidence to date that they do,” they write.

MARV stands for Marathon County Response Vehicle, which his department obtained in 2011. It’s the only one in the county and gets used 10 to 20 times a year, Bean said.

“People may not always understand why, but an armored vehicle is almost a necessity now,” Bean said.

Long-standingrift Hoeppner has filed a notice of claim against the town, and is considering a federal civil rights lawsuit, according to a Madison attorney who represents him in another case about Hoeppner’s right to speak at town meetings.

Sleep Experiment – A Month With No Artificial Light | J.D. Moyer

we decided to try the experiment again, but this time for the month of February — a month with much shorter days and longer nights. I was traveling during the last week of February, so it was effectively only a twenty day experiment. Still — both the effects and the experience itself were dramatic. In a nutshell: more sleep, better sleep, improved mood, and an entirely different rhythm to both waking and sleeping life. There were some downsides too, which I’ll also discuss.

3 Simple Ways to Block the Damaging Effects of Mainstream Media – Waking Times

Recall that mainstream media didn’t just happen one day. The mass media in the United Statesdates back for over two hundred years, dating back to the founding of America. Media was always a part of the plan. Fast forwarding to today, be aware that government Intelligence took control of the media as early as 1948 and even earlier. Try to appreciate the importance that media means to government and the control system, then push away any thoughts of the unrealistic argument that mass media news is all somehow coincidental and innocent honest news. If you really believe this then you are in deep trouble and need to get help. For everyone else let’s get started. Here are three simple things you can do to read mainstream media news and know instantly what to make of the story and how to categorize the story in your mind before believing the story blindly just because you saw it on TV or read it in a mainstream media website, or in a newspaper or magazine. Think of this as an exercise in mental freedom.
