Tonight's show on January 22, 2017 is the first one we've produced under the new empire.
We have a new president.
The majority of Americans do not support him, and in fact, our new president has even less support around the planet. This solidarity AGAINST what he stands for was clearly demonstrated on both Friday and Saturday this past week with the low turnout at the inauguration, followed by the massive PLANET-WIDE turnout on Saturday of people disclaiming association with him. His supporters are a diminishing 40% of Americans, who are among the least educated in America. Sadly, by endorsing him, these people are stating their acceptance that women are NOT the equals of men, especially Republican men.

In hour two of 21st Century Radio on January 22, 2016, we'll talk to our international correspondent Joe Honick and examine the unlawful help granted the Trump win by the FBI, and the insidious help from the Russian President. No question Putin shares with our new president the belief that women need to be punished for taking control over their own bodies. It is now once again legal to beat your wife in Russia, because they stated it "restores the natural order of things." The 2016 presidential election was indeed fraudulent and should be nullified. I am not the only one already claiming this is an impeachable offence.
How did we get here? It happened when corporate powers sealed their control of our government. As I've been warning for decades now, we are no longer living in either a democracy or a republic. The United States of America is now run as an oligarchy. Today, the 1% is unabashedly in charge.
In hour one of 21st Century Radio on January 22, 2016, we will ask two wisdom keepers from the Iroquois tradition for guidance from both their prophecies for the future, and their wisdom from their ancient past. Our guests are husband and wife team Mohawk Doug George Kanentiio and Oneida Joanne Shenandoah. Both of them have joined us previously on 21st Century Radio, and we learned an enormous amount from them that went into our new book, The Secret Life of Lady Liberty. As I reviewed the Iroquois prophecies about the coming environmental upheaval, I was dismayed to see many parallels to the visions of the future that I painted into my 2,700 square foot Johns Hopkins University mural called The Apocalypse nearly a half century ago!
Millions of women voted this election and they have the Iroquois to thank! In all my books about the hidden symbolism of the United States, I have acknowledged the hidden element of influence that was responsible for the success of the American Revolution. It was the essential truths about self-government learned by our founders from the League of the Iroquois or Haudenosaunee, people like Ben Franklin, George Washington, John Adams, and Thomas Paine to name a few. These are just a few of our founders who modeled themselves after the League of the Iroquois after realizing these Native Americans had created a long-lasting democratic republic by 1142 AD. In all our books (including America's Secret Destiny (1989), Founding Fathers Secret Societies (2006), United Symbolism of America (2008), and especially in The Secret Life of Lady Liberty (2016) ) we have documented how it was the Native American WOMEN who were the key to the success of our planet's oldest and most successful democratic Republic— which still exists today 800 years later!
Our guests in this first hour are Dr. Joanne Shenandoah and Doug George Kanentiio. Joanne Shenandoah is one of "America's most celebrated and critically acclaimed Native American musicians of her time," according to the Associated Press. She is a Grammy Award winner along with multiple other awards for her music, and a promoter of peace through music for planetary sustainability in trust for future generations. A direct descendent of the famed Oneida Chief Shenandoah, who was a friend and ally of George Washington, Joanne Shenandoah is a founding board member of the Hiawatha Institute for Indigenous Knowledge, a nonprofit educational facility based on Iroquois principles. In 2014 she served as co-chair for the Department of Justice Attorney General's National Task Force of Children Exposed to Violence, and she is celebrated with the honor of East-West Interfaith Ministry as “a bridge for peace in and among all cultures and spiritual traditions.”
Doug George-Kanentiio is a member of the Bear Clan of the Mohawk Nation at Akwesasne in New York. A former editor of Akwesasne Notes and Indian Times, he is on the board of directors of the National Museum of the American Indian, and also serves on various committees of the Mohawk Nation in respect to land claims, taxation, and a number of other contemporary issues. An award-winning columnist, he has served as advisor, producer, and scriptwriter for national television documentaries on Iroquois subjects. His books include Iroquois Culture and Commentary, and Indian on Fire.
Our second hour guest is international correspondent Joseph J. Honick, a consultant to business and government and writer for many publications. He welcomes your Email comments at firstname.lastname@example.org, and you can find him on Facebook at facebook.com/joehonick.
