This episode is about a recent example of corruption by a professional play actor, and how it ties into another clear case of corruption by the Democratic National Committee. No change will come without holding corruption accountable. But it must come from within.

Luis Hernandez phones in to ask a question.

Tweet of the Week: Michael Tracey has been blasting media pundits that tricked and duped the American public for two years advancing the false and salacious narrative surrounding RussiaGate. The Tweet of the Week calls on the fateful "Russia if You're Listening" campaign joke by President Trump.

Let’s start it off! Jussie Smollet! The smelter of the truth. The great fabricator. He is a trained faker after all. This story will not go away! First, unimaginable victim of hate from ignorant white men. No, not just ignorant, but evil white m…

EP-035 Honesty Within the Immigration Reform Debate

Live from the Smokin Js podcast studio in Olympia, Washington. This is the immigration reform podcast! Too many topics are not discussed on main stream media, and yet they are the aspects most important to the American public. But hey, a wall is easy to understand and divide people with. #enjoy

So here we are in the middle of a government shutdown, or a partial shutdown, or a everyone will get paid government vacation.  Whatever you want to call it, President Trump has drawn his own line in the sand marrying immigration reform to the partial vacation shutdown.

We've had shut downs before.  I won't cry for the government worker who is living without pay for a few weeks.  All jobs carry risks, even the cushiest jobs in the country.  No political party or pundit cares about the government worker on vacation.  The real issue is immigration.

The real issue is the border wall Trump promised Mexico would pay for in his 2016 election.  First let's look at the campaign promis…

Tweet of the Week: @helena_jennie Interview with James Douglass

Recently I came across a powerful tweet by @helena_jennie in which she posts a 45 minute interview with James Douglass, author of JFK and the Unspeakable.  He studied the prominent assassinations of the 60's and through this analysis has drawn striking conclusions about the United States.

He talks about the personal responsibility of evil.  Recognizing that the evil done on this world by our government is not the responsibility of an uncontrollable monolith, but by you, by me.  Taking responsibility that we are the government.

Jay Frodo, founder of Dichroic Alchemy, Atlantis Glass, Maui Super Herbs, Maui CBD, and Maui Medical Ashram joins Jay Fratt in studio to discuss his entrepreneurial philosophy and insights into spirituality.

Beyond starting success companies, Jay Frodo has also been able to pull away from his entrepreneurial creations to seek more fulfillment in life. He has developed specific theories on the life cycle of a business which he shares with us. An example being an equation he came up with for entrepreneurial success: Passion x Momentum = Breakthrough.

Guru is a term that could be applied to Jay Frodo. Perhaps life coach is another label. However, Jay Frodo doesn't like the modern narrow definition of these …

EP-031 The Trump Turn and Update

I'm back, but not with a vengeance.  More like some kind words.  Episode 31 is a Trump defender coming out a bunker to see if the cultural climate is right to comment once again.

It's been a while so I give my stance on gun control, the government spending bill, North Korea, and Syria.  But mainly this is a friendly hello and update as I reach out once again to my fellow terrestrial astronauts stuck in the middle with me.
