Author/Producer Richard Botkin / ADF Prez Michael Farris - The Tami Jackson Show

Another Tuesday night and I have two heavy hitters on the Tami Jackson Show*!
In the first 1/2 hour I will be speaking with frequent guest, Rich Botkin.
Rich, a retired Marine officer, served four years active, eleven in the reserves.

Botkin is the author of Ride the Thunder: A Vietnam War Story of Honor and Triumph, a magnificent work of military history centered on the Easter offensive and the American and Vietnamese Marines.

The tome highlights many brave men, including: Col G.H. “Gerry” Turley, Col John Ripley (“Skipper”), and Maj Le Ba Binh, who fought in a war demonized and undermined by the Mainstream Media and The Left.

Ride the Thunder tells the story of American Marines, Covan, and the TQLC, a story not well-known by so many Americans, and made the USMC Commandant's Reading List (required reading for Marines).

The 603 page book offers a sweeping view of the conditions throughout Indo-China prior to the Vietnam war, including the war between the Viet Minh and French forces, the Geneva Agreements begun in May 1954, the apportionment of the north as the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (Communist), the south as the Republic of Vietnam (non-communist).

When people such as Jane Fonda and Donald Sutherland spoke of Vietnam and the war, they never mentioned the bloody Communist purges between 1953 and 1956.

Botkin's book recounts the history through the eyes of the American and South Vietnamese Marines and their wives, personalizing a much misunderstood conflict.

Richard writes on page 17:

No accurate details exist for the number of people disposed of during this period, nor was there a record of those eliminated during their attempts to leave or intimidated from moving to the south.

As there was little in the way of press coverage, news of massive purges were only gathered by word of mouth when it reached the south and given scant attention in Western media.

Ride the Thunder is the result of 5 years of writing and 4 trips to Vietnam, and was made into a motion picture in March of 2015. You can follow the movie progress at RideTheThunderMovie.com.

Rich wrote an article in October 2017 titled, Will Ken Burns' Twisted Version of Vietnam War Endure?

The article begins:

“No event in American history is more misunderstood than the Vietnam War. It was misreported then, and it is misremembered now.” Richard Nixon’s 1994 post-war observation remains as prescient as ever. With the release of the Ken Burns/Lynne Novick epic 10-part PBS documentary on the war last month, it is safe to say that the misreporting and misremembering have only been compounded and exacerbated.

Sadly, the American taxpayers have funded the Burns/Novick series which only continues The Left's distorted narrative of the Vietnam War.

Click the picture to go to the Amazon video page!
Botkin writes in his article:

If nothing else, the release of the Burns/Novick work has ignited a firestorm of passionate response from those men who honorably served. And it was their stories, including those of our South Vietnamese allies, that went largely untold in 18 long, tortuous hours.

Ride the Thunder movie is NOW available on Amazon video: the HD digital movie is free to Amazon Prime members (or can be rented or purchased by those who are not Prime members).

In addition, Ride the Thunder movie DVDs can be purchased at Amazon.

Our hope is that perhaps a backlash will occur, that thousands will obtain copies of the Ride the Thunder movie, and that the light of truth will reveal the Burns series to be a terrible misrepresentation of the war and those who honorably served.

*******************

In the second 1/2 hour I will be talking to Michael Farris.
Michael P. Farris is President, CEO, and General Counsel of Alliance Defending Freedom. In January 2017, he became only the second person to occupy that position in the organization’s 23-year history. He brings to the role a remarkably diverse background as an effective litigator, educator, public advocate, pastor, and communicator, and wide recognition for his successful work on both the national and international stage.

Farris was founding president of both the Home School Legal Defense Association (1983) and Patrick Henry College (2000) and continues to serve as chairman of the board of HSLDA and chancellor emeritus of PHC.

He graduated from Western Washington State College, magna cum laude, with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science, followed by a Juris Doctor from Gonzaga University (with honors). At Gonzaga, he was articles editor of the Law Review and winner of the Linden Cup Moot Court Competition. He also earned an LL.M. in Public International Law (with honors) from the University of London.

Farris has specialized in constitutional appellate litigation. In that capacity, he has argued before the U.S. Supreme Court, eight federal circuit courts of appeals, and in the appellate courts of 13 states. He is also the author of numerous amicus briefs before the U.S. Supreme Court.

Farris also has substantial experience in international human rights advocacy. He served for nearly a decade on the board of Christian Solidarity International—a Swiss-based human rights organization. He served as International Vice President of CSI for a number of years and participated in missions to the former Soviet Union and Romania. He has also engaged in private diplomatic missions to China and the Czech Republic.

Farris is nationally known as a pioneering leader of the modern homeschooling movement. His leadership of HSLDA has taken him to nearly every state and a growing number of other nations.

As the founding president of Patrick Henry College, he helped launch a highly regarded Christian educational institution founded on a strong commitment to biblical truth and the classical liberal arts, the twin pillars of education for the founding generations of the United States. At PHC, Farris has taught constitutional law, public international law, and coached the Moot Court team to nine national championships between 2004 and 2016.

Farris is the author of over 15 books, as well as law review and other scholarly articles, and countless pieces for the popular press.

Michael and his wife, Vickie, have 10 children and 20 grandchildren.

Listen in as Michael and I discuss the victory of the Trinity Lutheran Church v. Comer SCOTUS ruling: the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 7-2 in favor of ADF's client Trinity. Mike and I will talk about the repercussions of the ruling on, Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, and about President Trump’s proclamation recognizing Jan. 16 as Religious Freedom Day. Farris commented:

Americans have always treasured their ability to freely live out their faith. The president’s proclamation of Religious Freedom Day today comes at a time when that freedom has perhaps never been more threatened, so we join him in encouraging all Americans to consider the importance of religious freedom—and to celebrate it.

As the president’s proclamation says, ‘No American—whether a nun, nurse, baker, or business owner—should be forced to choose between the tenets of faith or adherence to the law.’ That’s precisely why we recently argued on behalf of cake artist Jack Phillips before the U.S. Supreme Court. Americans should be able to peacefully live and work according to their beliefs without fear of punishment by the government.

Tim Constantine / Gary Byrne - The Tami Jackson Show

In the first 1/2 hour of The Tami Jackson Show* I will be talking to Tim Constantine.
Tim is a radio host and the spokesman for Rethink Ethanol, a coalition of environmentalists, small business, and industry that advocate to relax or repeal completely the Renewable Fuel Standard.

Tim Constantine hit the airwaves at age 13. At the time, his deep voice didn't match his skinny frame and sneakers, but through the magic of radio, it really didn't matter. As a young man he worked in Rock and Top 40 Formats. Later, while serving in elected office, Constantine returned to broadcasting, this time in the Talk Format.

Today Constantine broadcasts from Washington DC to listeners all across the United States. He combines his background in TV and Radio, his experience in public office, his controversial fall from grace and his hard-nose business approach with his understated sense of humor for one of the most entertaining radio programs anywhere.

Tim and I will be talking about the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS):

Congress created the renewable fuel standard (RFS) program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and expand the nation’s renewable fuels sector while reducing reliance on imported oil.

This program was authorized under the Energy Policy Act of 2005 and expanded under the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007.

Some important points we'll cover:

Thanks to the swamp, Americans pay more and more for food each year. This is because of a government mandate called the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) written by and lobbied for by special interest groups. RFS mandates that 10% of gasoline be mixed with ethanol, a product of corn.
As gasoline companies complied with the mandate, the price of corn skyrocketed affected livestock farmers who depend on corn to feed chickens, cows, and pigs. Farmers were forced to increase their prices dramatically, and American consumers are left to pick up the bill.
Even environmentalists who originally advocated for the ethanol-gasoline mix are now advocating against the mandate, saying the the huge influx of corn productive is extremely harmful to the environment with excess nutrient running off from Midwest states to flow down the Mississippi river to the Gulf of Mexico, where dead zones affect commercial and recreational fishing and tourism - huge industries for Gulf States.
This is a conversation that affects each one of us and our daily lives -- don't miss one word and be sure to check out the Rethink Ethanol website for constantly updated articles, research and legislation!

***********************

My guest for the second 1/2 hour will be Gary Byrne
Gary J. Byrne served in federal law enforcement for nearly thirty years, in the U.S. Air Force Security Police, the Uniformed Division of the Secret Service, and most recently as a Federal Air Marshal. While serving as a Secret Service Officer, Gary protected President Bill Clinton and the First Family in the White House.

Gary has received letters of commendation and praise from Bill Clinton's Chief of State, the Secret Service, and the acting director of the Federal Air Marshal Service.

Gary Byrne authored the Hachette Book Group bombshell, Crisis of Character: A White House Secret Service Officer Discloses His Firsthand Experience with Hillary, Bill, and How They Operate.

Byrne has a brand new, revealing book out, Secrets of the Secret Service: The History and Uncertain Future of the U.S. Secret Service, that enumerates the failings within the Secret Service itself: lack of leadership, lack of financial budgeting and accountability, and most importantly, critical failures in protecting presidents and other protectees.

Gary and I will talk a bit about his tenure in the Clinton White House, which gives Gary a unique viewpoint on the challenges facing Secret Service detail with President Trump.

We'll also talk about any inside baseball on Hillary's opinion and treatment of the Secret Service. But most importantly, we will talk about his new book and what must be done to make the U.S. Secret Service great again!

In the first 1/2 hour of The Tami Jackson Show* I will be talking to Yoni Tidi.
Yoni is a friend and Orthodox Jew. He served Israel as a master sniper and a member of one of her anti-terrorist units. When he left that unit he was second in command of the all-volunteer, special operations unit.

Tidi is an American citizen, as well as an Israeli citizen, and never shies away from straight talk.

Yoni's latest venture is a top-tier cybersecurity venture, CyberGhostGlobal.

Cyber Ghost is a leading cyber security company with a different approach than mainstream cyber security companies, who use only conventional cyber security approaches. CGG uses a wider set of tools that, when combined with their specific knowledge and experience, ensures data security.

Cyber Ghost is born out of an existing Israeli company that has been in private practice for 16 years. All Cyber Ghost cyber personnel are Mossad cyber experts. (they can say Mossad since their people are still doing reserve duty with the Mossad.)

Cyber Ghost Global is registered as an exporter with the Israeli Ministry of Defense and operate under its regulation.

As usual, this will be a fun conversation as Yoni and I discuss the current situation in the Middle East, Trump's proclamation of Jerusalem as the official capital of Israel, other hot political topics and of course, Cyber Ghost Global!

************************

In the second half hour I will be joined by Tyler Merritt.
Tyler Merritt is a Co-Founder of Nine Line Apparel -- with his wife, Angela, his brother, Daniel, and their friend, Myles Burke.

Merritt is a former Apache Helicopter Pilot turned Special Operations Air Mission Commander in the 160th SOAR.

Following his graduation from the United States Military Academy at West Point, U.S. Army Captain Merritt was deployed multiple times to Iraq, Afghanistan, the Arabian Peninsula, and South America.

CPT Merritt most recently served as Executive Officer to C Co, 3-160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (SOAR). He previously served as a West Point faculty member.

In the military, a Nine Line is a medevac request for a soldier that is injured on the battlefield.

To soldiers, a Nine Line symbolizes patriotism, hope, and trust in one’s countrymen.

As a life-style brand, Nine Line Apparel aims to reinvigorate the sense of patriotism and national pride that is disappearing daily from our society. Where politics and dissent divide our country, we hope to inspire unity and brotherhood among all Americans as patriots under our common flag.

At its core, Nine Line is a give-back organization, forever striving to be their brother’s keeper, and encouraging others to do the same. We support a multitude of initiatives beyond raising awareness, and financially back organizations that help those in need.

From first responders to military charities to disaster relief initiatives, Nine Line is committed to ongoing support of charitable initiatives. No matter the circumstances, we've got your six.

To learn more about our Foundation, please visit Nine Line Foundation.

Tyler and I will be discussing patriotism in America and those NFL players who kneel during the playing of our National Anthem. In keeping with the theme of all their apparel -- supporting those who have served and are serving -- Nine Line created an "I Stand" line of shirts.

Historian Arthur Herman / Charisma CEO Stephen Strang - The Tami Jackson Show
Clean

My first guest on the Tami Jackson Show* tonight will be Arthur Herman.

Dr. Arthur Herman (Ph.D. Johns Hopkins, 1985) is the author of the New York Times bestseller How the Scots Invented the Modern World, which has sold a half million copies worldwide, and Gandhi and Churchill, which was a 2009 finalist for the Pulitzer Prize.

His six other books include To Rule the Waves: How the British Navy Shaped the Modern World, which was nominated for the UK’s prestigious Mountbatten Maritime Prize; Freedom’s Forge, named by the Economist as one of the Best Books of 2012; and Douglas MacArthur: American Warrior.

He is currently a Senior Fellow at the Hudson Institute in Washington, DC.

Educated at the University of Minnesota and Johns Hopkins University in history and classics, Dr. Herman is a frequent contributor on defense, energy, and technology issues to Commentary magazine, the New York Post, National Review, and the Wall Street Journal. He was also the first non-British citizen to be named to the Scottish Arts Council from 2007 to 2009.

Listen as Arthur Herman and I talk about his brand new book, 1917: Lenin, Wilson, and the Birth of the New World Disorder.

Covered in 1917:

President Woodrow Wilson’s idea to create a world “safe for democracy” ultimately failed as the world’s most powerful dictatorship rose from the ashes of World War I - the Soviet Union. While his idealism was well-intentioned it established the United States as the “world’s policeman,” paving the way for later U.S. mishaps in Vietnam and Iraq.
Simultaneous to Wilson’s moves on the world stage, Vladimir Lenin executed both his plan to reshape the world in his Marxist image and all those who opposed it. In the name of “liberating humanity,” Lenin overthrew Russia’s post-czar democratic revolution with his own murderous dictatorship.
The world Wilson and Lenin created still affects our politics and the international order we see today. Without Wilson’s League of Nations, we would not have the supranational United Nations we know today nor would we have Moscow and Beijing as the epicenters of power in the East. It is these men that have set the stage for the international adversaries that dominate foreign policy a century later.
Nicholas Reynolds, author of Writer, Sailor, Soldier, Spy: Ernest Hemingway’s Secret Adventures, 1935-1961, notes:

Arthur Herman’s parallel biography of Lenin and Wilson will make the reader stop and think — about the great man theory of history and the cataclysmic events of 1917. Analyzing their legacies, Herman issues a clarion call for us to cast a wary eye on ideologues who want to remake the world, in 2017 as in 1917.

This will be fascinating as Arthur and I talk history and philosophy -- Wilson was a prominent Progressive (Socialist) and it's critical that Americans to understand the roots of Socialism, Marxism, and Progressivism, and the role they played in WWI.

**********************

In the second 1/2 hour my guest will be Stephen Strang.

Stephen E. Strang is an award-winning journalist and successful businessman who began his career as a newspaper reporter at the Orlando Sentinel before founding a Christian publishing house and media company.

Strang has interviewed and written about nearly every Christian leader in the country over the past four decades.

He is author of the book, God and Donald Trump. He joined other Christian leaders who campaigned for Trump's election.

As written in the front cover:

Donald Trump is an enigma, a brash self-promoter, casino owner, and a man of the world. Yet he is also a devoted husband and father who has surrounded himself with men and women of faith and has made religion a key component of his image.

God and Donald Trump is a powerful first-person account of one of the most contentious elections in American history, with exclusive interviews and insightful commentary from the men and women who were there.

Strang remarks:

Most evangelical Christians did not support Donald Trump when he announced he was running for President in 2015. Why should they have? He had made a fortune in gambling.

He was thrice married, and he was known to use some pretty salty language at times—hardly the model politician the religious right could enthusiastically support.

As it turned out, however, most evangelicals did get behind him in the 2016 election, giving Trump 82 percent of the evangelical vote—reportedly the highest percentage ever. Since then his support from the Christian community has remained steady.

Stephen Strang is CEO of Charisma Media and founder of Charisma magazine. Charisma Media also publishes Ministry Today, the Spanish magazine Vida Cristiana and Christian Retailing.

Steve and I will discuss Donald Trump and HOW he won 82% of the evangelical vote and what role faith now plays in his administration.

In the second 1/2 hour my guest will be Robert Alt.

Robert Alt is the President and Chief Executive Officer of The Buckeye Institute, where he also serves on the Board of Trustees.

Alt’s leadership has been the catalyst for The Buckeye Institute’s exponential growth since he took the organization’s helm in 2012. He has since founded The Buckeye Institute’s esteemed Economic Research Center and Legal Center, from which the Buckeye team not only imagines public policy victories but compels them with sound data, objective research, and strategic litigation.

Alt is a nationally recognized scholar with expertise in legal policy including criminal justice, national security, and constitutional law. Prior to heading The Buckeye Institute, Alt was a Director in the Center for Legal and Judicial Studies serving under former U.S. Attorney General Edwin Meese III at The Heritage Foundation, where he regularly advised Members of Congress and Supreme Court litigants on complex legal arguments and strategy.

Alt is a frequent speaker at dozens of universities and law schools across the country, and his writings have appeared in The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Times, New York Post, U.S. News & World Report, The San Diego Union-Tribune, and SCOTUSblog. Alt is a longtime contributor to National Review Online, where he has published more than 100 articles and blogs. He has provided commentary on CNN, Fox News Channel, PBS and its affiliates, and numerous syndicated radio programs.

In 2004, Alt spent five months in Iraq as a war correspondent.

Alt is an attorney admitted to the bars of Ohio and the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the Sixth and D.C. Circuits, a member of the Mont Pelerin Society, the U.S. Supreme Court Historical Society, and a former Fellow in the Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence at the Claremont Institute where he was also a Publius Fellow in 1998.

Following law school, he clerked for Judge Alice Batchelder on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. Alt graduated with his B.A. in political science and philosophy magna cum laude from Azusa Pacific University where he won the Outstanding Senior Award in Political Science.

Robert and I will discuss his informative article, It's Time For Public Sector Workers To Be Given A Voice And Choice.

As written in the article:

Every morning, hardworking men and women in every state drink their coffee and diligently go to work on our behalf—in our neighborhoods as public school teachers, home care workers, engineers, and in agencies protecting the environment. Unfortunately, while these civic-minded professionals go to work for us, the labor unions that they must join in order to teach our children or serve our communities do not always work for them.

Once a public-sector union is certified, it remains the workers’ representative—potentially forever. In Ohio, for example, the Columbus Education Association has represented Columbus public school teachers since 1968—back when the Beatles were still together and before many of today’s teachers were even born.

Heirloom unions inherited from the Nixon-era are depriving today’s public workers and civil servants of any meaningful voice or choice in their workplace. Ninety-four percent of union workers have never had the chance to vote for or against their unions

Former Mafia Boss Michael Franzese / Patrick Van Horne - Tami Jackson Show

My first guest on the Tami Jackson Show* tonight will be Michael Franzese.

Michael Franzese grew up as the son of the notorious Underboss of New York’s violent and feared Colombo crime family. At his most affluent, he generated an estimated $5 to $8 million per week from legal and illegal businesses. It was a life filled with power, luxury…and deadly violence.

In 1986, mafia boss, Michael Franzese was named one of the biggest money earners the mob had seen since Al Capone, by Vanity Fair.

At the age of 35, Fortune Magazine listed him as number 18 on its list of the “Fifty Most Wealthy and Powerful Mafia Bosses”, just 5 behind John Gotti. Avoiding traditional mob domains, Michael masterminded brilliant scams on the edge of the legitimate business world.

From auto dealerships and union kickbacks, to financial services and the sports and entertainment industries, to a multi-billion dollar gasoline tax scheme, he earned millions in cash every week at his peak.

Not surprisingly, Michael quickly became the target of Manhattan’s famed federal prosecutor, Rudy Giuliani. After promising Michael 100 years behind bars after indicting him on racketeering charges, Rudy only came up empty handed. Escaping four more indictments, it seemed Michael Franzese truly was invincible.

While producing Knights of the City, a break dance movie filmed in Florida, Michael met a beautiful dancer from Anaheim, California, named Camille Garcia, whose innocent beauty and faith turned his world upside down.

After falling in love and eventually marrying Cammy, Michael took the rap on racketeering charges. He pled guilty, accepted a 10-year prison sentence and vowed to do the unthinkable – walk away from the mob. Nobody of his rank had ever just walked away – and lived. Until now.

Michael is currently starring in Kevin and Sam Sorbo's terrific new movie, Let There Be Light. -- he plays Pastor Vinny.

Listen in as Michael recounts his past as a "made man" and his encounter with the amazing grace that set him free, his part in Let There Be Light and his ministry.

**********************

My second guest tonight will be Patrick Van Horne.

Patrick Van Horne, a former USMC Captain, is the founder and CEO of The CP Journal, a behavioral analysis training company. His firm provides training support to the U.S. military, federal and local law enforcement agencies and the private security industry.

He served in the Marine Corps for seven years as an infantry officer, earning the rank of Captain following his two deployments to Iraq.

In addition to serving as a platoon commander, company executive officer and company commander, Patrick served as the officer-in-charge of a training team in the Combat Hunter program.

Following his service, he returned to the private sector, founded the company and co-authored Left of Bang.

I am convinced that, not just Marines or operatives, but every American should read this book.

With the recent church shooting in Texas, with the threat of Islamic terrorism now in country, Americans face danger, and not just down range.

Left of Bang is the ultimate guide to situational awareness tactics.

What does "Left of Bang" mean? You'll have to listen and find out!

His company's training focuses on teaching people how to prevent violent attacks from occurring and finding attackers in plain sight.

My first guest on the Tami Jackson Show* tonight will be Ryan Mauro.

Ryan Mauro is Clarion Project’s Shillman Fellow and National Security Analyst. A professor of homeland security, counter-terrorism and political science, he consults to government agencies, and policy-makers.

The Clarion Project draws together Middle East experts, scholars, human rights activists and Muslims to promote tolerance and moderation and challenge extremism.

Mauro formerly served as an intelligence analyst for Tactical Defense Concepts, a maritime-related security group.

Mauro has made over 1,000 appearances on international radio and TV programs from both the left and the right, including frequent segments on FOX News Channel, Al-Hurra, CCTV, Voice of America, Wall Street Journal Live, etc. He’s been widely published and quoted in outlets like The New York Times, The Washington Post, USA Today, The Hill, Roll Call and the Daily Caller.

He was originally hired as an international security analyst at age 16 for a maritime protection company. His research led to two speaking engagements at the International Intelligence Summit, billed as the most prestigious conference of its kind. The event’s material, including Mauro’s bio, was found inside Osama Bin Laden’s Pakistan compound.

In 2012, his work caught the attention of the Muslim Brotherhood, which lashed out at him as “delusional” on its official English-language Twitter account.

Ryan and I will discuss his article published at Clarion, "Trump’s U.N. Speech: 10 Important Moments," and breakdown President Trumps U.N. speech, why it was so important.

Listeners to this show will remember Ryan from guest appearances in 2014, and appreciate his depth of knowledge on the Middle East, foreign policy, and the threat of radical Islam.

My second guest tonight will be Timothy Shea.

Timothy Shea has been active in GOP politics deep behind enemy lines in the Northeast for over 40 years.

He has served as a Town Meeting Member, Town GOP Committee Member, and state convention delegate in Massachusetts.

The former host of Radio RedNationRising, he is a political commentator and essayist.

Timothy and I will be talking about the latest domestic news -- Judge Roy Moore accusations, Attorney General Jeff Sessions testimony at the House Judiciary Committee oversight hearings and more.

Timothy is a favorite of mine and my listeners, and this will be fast-paced and loads of fun as usual!

In the first 1/2 hour I will be speaking with Retired Marine Officer Freddie Blish.

USMC LtCol (Ret) Freddie Blish joined the Marine Corps on 25 Feb 1983.

Blish served in the 8th Engineer Support Battalion, Marine Corps Security Force Company Panama (Operation Promote Liberty), 1st Combat Engineer Battalion, 1st Marine Division (JTF-6 Counter Drug), Marine Forces Pacific/Korea/Central Command (Operation Desert Thunder), Headquarters Marine Corps, and MWSG-37 3rd MAW (Operation Iraqi Freedom I & II).

Freddie is the President/Owner of Robar Companies, Inc.® and instructor at Lt. Col. Jeff Cooper's Gunsite Academy.

Freddie and I will talk about ROBAR Companies commemorative RC-50, which debuts on or about this Friday -- Veteran's Day!

Some info you'll want to know:

The RC-50 features a precision CNC-machined customized bolt-action system of operation and feeds from a 5-round detachable magazine inserted into the underside of the receiver in the usual way. The gun weighs a hefty-yet-manageable 25lbs and sports an overall length of 36 inches with a barrel measuring some 29 inches long (a 24-inch barrel is also available).

Like others in its field the RC-50 is chambered to fire the massive and powerful .50 BMG which gives it good penetration against light armor and fortified structures. Such weapons are useful in disabling armored vehicles by targeting specific components in their design – sensors, track links, driver positions, etc….

Effective range of the RC-50 system reaches out to 2,000 meters and sighting is primarily through a 16X telescopic scope. The receiver is designed to accept a plethora of after-market scope types to suit mission and operator requirements.

All you firearms aficionados out there, get a front row seat and pay attention -- this rifle is something special and will be a very, desirable addition to anyone's long gun collection.

************************

In the second 1/2 hour I will be talking to Raheel Raza.

Raheel Raza is a member of the Clarion Project Advisory Board. She is president of The Council for Muslims Facing Tomorrow, a founding member of The Muslim Reform Movement, author of the book Their Jihad – Not My Jihad, award winning journalist, public speaker, and advocate for human rights.

Raheel speaks at places of worship, the private sector, school boards and government institutions. She has been invited to the Parliaments of Sweden, UK, Israel and to Capitol Hill in Washington DC.

In her pursuit for human rights, Raheel is accredited with United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva through The Centre for Inquiry (CFI). She has received many awards for her work on women’s equality including the City of Toronto’s Constance Hamilton award.

Raheel is the voice of Clarion’s short film "By The Numbers" and stars in "Honor Diaries."

Raheel and I will talk about her article, ISIS Halloween Terror – Ordered Last Thanksgiving?

As she writes at The Daily Caller:

Once again evil has struck New York City. ISIS terrorist Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov used a rented truck to run down and kill 8 innocent people and injure at least a dozen more. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims and those injured.

But we cannot say we did not see this coming.

Last year, ISIS urged its followers in the West to use rented trucks to murder innocent people in New York, singling out the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade as an “an excellent target.”

Less than a year later, a terrorist rented a truck and murdered people in the name of ISIS, mere steps from the World Trade Center.

The terrorist shouted “Allahu Akbar,” announcing to all who would listen the reason for his cowardly terrorist attack. He did it in the name of Jihad. He did it in the name of ISIS. He did it in the name of my religion. He is a soldier in the ongoing “war on the West” declared by radical Islamists.

But he is not a “lone wolf,” as many in the media have described him. There is no such thing as a “lone wolf.” He did not sit alone in the woods and then – one day, out of the blue – come up with the idea of renting a truck and running down innocent people while shouting “Allahu Akbar.” That was an instruction given by ISIS last year.

You won't want to miss this interesting conversation with Raheel -- she knows what she's talking about when it comes to radical Islamic Terrorism and we would do well to listen intently!
