When President Trump accused Joe Biden of calling Black youths "Super Predators" in the debate many people assumed he was telling a falsehood, or making a mistake. Most Americans were unaware of the disparaging remarks Joe Biden made about Americans he admitted were "victims of society", many of these were poor, urban, Blacks that would be victimized further by the 1994 Crime Bill. Biden did call them "predators". He said, "unless we do something about that cadre of young people, tens of thousands of them, born out of wedlock, without parents, without any conscience developing... they will, or a portion of them will, become predators 15 years from now... we have predators on our streets... we have no choice but to take them out of society." These were not just words. As a lawmaker Biden would back up these words with a law that would do exactly what he said. However, Biden never actually used the phase "Super Predator". That was Hillary Clinton and her husband Bill Clinton signed Biden's law. It's possible that President Trump made a mistake, but it's also possible that he intentionally included the "super" to draw more attention to Biden's more disturbing statements. How were the Clinton's the even greater predators at that time, and how did they, along with Joe Biden help to create the systemic racism he now says he will fight?

The United States started seeing cocaine on it's streets in the early 1970's. It was smuggled into the county through South Florida by Cuban exiles working with Pablo Escobar and the Medellin Cartel. In those days cocaine was an expensive luxury drug enjoyed by rich and middle-class Americans; the stockbroker who does a few bumps to ease the pressure of the job, or the socialite that liked doing a few lines and dancing all night at the disco. In the 1980's that started to changed. The supply of cocaine on American streets started to increase exponentially, and the price dropped drastically. When crack came on the scene in 1985 it made it possible for common Americans to enjoy the high of cocaine. It was epidemic! The community that was hit hardest by this epidemic was Black America, which was still recovering from generations of poverty and oppression. The crack cocaine epidemic led to a crime epidemic in poor Black communities, which led to an outcry for law and order. In 1986 Congress answered those cries with legislation that was meant to fix the problem. It ended up creating even more problems for Black America. What was the source of the massaive increase of cocaine in the United States in the 1980's, and how did it lead to "The New Jim Crow"?

When Richard Nixon resigned in the middle of his second term the Republican brand was at its lowest point since the founding of the party. The party was associated with scandal and had lost trust with the American people. However, when Ronald Reagan was elected 6 years later it was a chance to show the American people that the party had changed. When the Iran-Contra scandal broke in the middle of Reagan's second term it not only threatened his presidency and his cabinet, but the integrity of the entire party was at stake. The Iran-Contra scandal had the potential to make Ronald Reagan the second consecutive Republican President elected to resign or be impeached because of a scandal. Both scandals involved presidential abuses of power, and nefarious activities by the CIA. The CIA was also distrusted, and had a brand problem after an airing of their dirty laundry in the 1975 Church Committee hearings. The Iran-Contra scandal had the potential to bring even more scrutiny on the agency. What is the Iran-Contra scandal, and how did the Reagan administration and CIA avoid being held accountable for it?

The Eighties decade was a transformative decade for the United States, but in 1980 when the decade started all of the problems the nation faced at the close of the Seventies were still pervasive. These were the problems the Reagan administration sought to overcome when they came to power in 1981. Domestically, most of those problems were economic issues, and Reagan was bringing a bold and aggressive plan to deal with it. His plan was to lower the marginal tax rates, deregulation, and to decrease government spending, excluding the military which would see a massive increase in spending under Reagan. This created an explosion of new wealth for investors and top earners, but it did little to stimulate upward mobility for Americans at the bottom of the socioeconomic scale. This economic philosophy was often referred to as Trickle-down economics, but in hindsight many question if the policy actually did more to increase wealth inequality and poverty in the United States. Looking back now, what were the longterm effects of Reaganomics, and how did it set the nation on a new course in our values?

When Ronald Reagan won the 1980 election it was called the Reagan Revolution, but it wasn't a revolution only because he defeated Jimmy Carter. The platform that Reagan ran on was also revolutionary for the Republican Party. Before Reagan won the Republican nomination for president that year the party had been dominated by a northeastern elite known as Rockefeller Republicans. This business and banking elite controlled the Republican Party since the Eisenhower administration and they were a powerful force in American politics. It was believed they were defeated for good in 1964 when Arizona Senator, Barry Goldwater won the Republican nomination on new conservative platform. However, in1968 Richard Nixon, a Rockefeller Republican won the nomination andthe presidency. When Nixon resigned in 1974 and was replaced by Gerald Ford, a Rockefeller Republican, Ford made Nelson Rockefeller his Vice President. In 1976 California Governor Ronald Reagan, challenged Ford for the nominationrunning on a similar conservative platform as Barry Goldwater. Reagan was narrowly defeated at the convention, but ran again in1980 and easily won the nomination and the presidency.Many people believed that Reagan's win dealt the deathblow to Rockefeller Republicans, but is that true? What happened to the Rockefeller Republicansafter the Reagan Revolution? Join the conversation and get answers to these questions and more on According2Sam episode #66.

The Civil Rights movement in the 50's and 60's was rooted in the Black Christian Church. Before Twitter and Facebook organizers would mobilize activist in Churches for demonstrations, protests, and to strategize. This meant the principles of the movement were rooted in Christian values, which meant a commitment to dignity, character, equality for all, and nonviolence. These values are in stark contrast to the values of the Black Lives Matter movement currently inflaming the world. That's because it's based on a totally different ideology than the Christian values that won Black America so many achievements in the 50's and 60's. The BLM movement is fueled by many different ideologies, and the founders have admitted that a foundational ideology is Marxism. However, there is an even more prevalent ideology in the Black community that is fueling the current unrest, and it is an equally troubling philosophy as Marxism -- perhaps more! What is this dangerous philosophy and how did it find...

America has had many different political parties in its 232 year history. We had the Know Nothing Party, the Socialist Party, the Green Party, and many others. One lesser known party from the 1830’s was the Anti-Masonic Party. It was a precursor of the Republican Party, and as their name suggests they were dedicated to rooting out the influence of Free Masonry in government. They believed the secrecy of the Masonic Order was dangerous and that through the influence of Free Masons in high positions the society was too powerful. Republican congressmen, Thaddeus Stevens, was the leading voice for the abolition of slavery during the Civil War. He had also been a former member of the Anti-Masonic party. He said about Free Masons in government in the mid-19th century, that they had "contrived by concert" to place themselves into most of the positions of high profit and power. The Anti-Masonic Party may not be around today, but the threat they feared of secret societies such as Free Masonry controlling the government may be alive and thriving. Is there any evidence that a secret society is controlling public policy in America? If so, what does it mean for you and your family?

There is an evil empire on planet earth that seeks to enslave every man, woman, and child on this planet, and usher in a ‘New Order of the Ages’. In the words of the late President John F. Kennedy, this evil empire is “monolithic and ruthless”, and “relies primarily on covert means for expanding it’s sphere of influence — on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.” He said, “Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised.” The force behind this evil empire is an age old religion and dark spiritual concepts of the mysteries, one of which is the idea that order comes from chaos. How is this evil empire using the current chaos in our nation and world to usher in the new world order itisseeking, and how are the mobs in the streets aiding this evil empire in itsefforts?Join the conversation and get answers to thesequestions and more on According2Sam episode #62.
