In our unofficial 100th episode (we are actually over that number of podcasts) we take questions from the public directly on the latest of the week. We discuss the first-hand experience of greeting President Trump in Utica and the feeling of the anti-Trump pro-Brindisi protest. From there we talk about Progressive Leaders of Tomorrow (PLOT) and thier far left actions plus how this ties into the explicit call for support of violence against beliefs that CNN's Chris Cuomo does not like. Of course this brings us to Gov. Andrew Cuomo (the brother of Chris) and his very public revelation that he thinks America, and all it's freedoms that have elevated his family, has never been great. It's a pretty intense podcast, perfect for the unofficial 100th episode. Listen in, share and comment please.

We had the opportunity to speak with single mother, student, business owner, and President of the Greater Binghamton chapter of New York State Women Inc - Heather L. Micha. She is also a Board member of the Broome County Republican Women's Club. We learned a bit about this highly successful and driven woman, and how she is working to help the community, and women throughout the State. Please Like and Share.

We discuss the honor of being selected for the White House Press Pool, and the experience of covering the President's arrival at Griffiss International Airport. We follow that up with the significantly different experience of covering the far left anti-Trump pro-Brindisi protest in Utica. Not to be left out we discuss the aftermath in Binghamton NY. Then we switch gears to look at the Omarosa accusation of the N-word being used, and how it is actually being used every day. But we finish with no other than the Cuomo's. CNN's Chris Cuomo justifying violence for ideas he likes, and Gov. Andrew Cuomo justifying his regime of punishing Conservatives and those he does not like by blaming America for not being in his image.

This past week was sadly an excellent example of the loss of freedom of speech in several fronts. The impact of all of this, from the local to national level, is subtle but powerful. It's a progression that needs to be stopped in its track, before the losses compound.

The theme of this episode circulates around the anxiety some have currently in the political environment encompassing the nation. From Parties making choices for voters they didn't ask for, to candidates smoke and mirrors, to the disociative news media vs reality, and ultimately the incongruity of the beliefs some hold as a result. We take the long way around, because the soundbite path is a disservice to us all. Let us know your comments, and share if you like the episode.
