ICYMI - Collusion! Part Deux

Colin Kaepernick
There's that word again!

But this time, it comes in the context of Colin Kaepernick's grievance filed against the NFL that claims that Trump colluded to keep him out of a job with the league and its teams. Yes, you read that right.

We also talk about what the Iran deal de-certification REALLY means (you know some actual political talk!) as well as why Harvey Weinstein's attorney may be a genius and why Slate thinks the Second Amendment means you should be limited to two guns.

ICYMI - Russ is Back To Address a Mad, Mad, Mad World

Behind Enemy Lines Radio
With Halloween approaching, we're getting the
band back together!
The band is back together! Russ and I FINALLY reunited on air for another great edition of Behind Enemy Lines Radio. And, there's so much to talk about.

It only took us 9 months or so to get our technical sh-tuff together, but now that it's done, expect many more great shows from Russ and I - it's great to be back!

This week, Russ and I take on the Las Vegas shooting and the left's knee-jerk reaction to the latest barrage of partisan attacks on the Second Amendment, discuss the NFL/National Anthem hub-bub in light of reports that Colin Kaepernick will not kneel if he gets a job, and takes a sobering glance at the developing tension concerning the possibility of a nuclear North Korea.

Buckle up - months of pent-up radio talk is comin' at 'cha!

ICYMI - NFL: Nutty For Liberals w/ Civil Rights Attorney Robert Patillo

NOTE: This show was recorded prior to the tragic events in Las Vegas. Everyone here at BEL is keeping those effected by the shooting in our thoughts and prayers. 

This week, BEL welcomes the FIRST Democrat to come as a guest on the show! Gene discusses NFL protests with self-identifying "Conservative Democrat", Civil Rights attorney and Atlanta-area radio show host, Robert Patillo. Together, they break down the legalities and the politics of the recent NFL protests against... well... whatever is being protested.

Now, we don't normally rub elbows with Democrats, but Robert Patillo proved to be a thoughtful, common-sense political pundit. Robert brings a dynamic “centrist” viewpoints which engages viewers in ways unmatched by any other voice in the public discourse. With connections that stretch both nationally and abroad, he brings the voice of the voiceless to the national spotlight and is apologetic in his passion for progressive social change.

Currently he hosts “People, Passion and Politics” on CBS Radio Atlanta on News and Talk WAOK AM 1380 from 1:00 – 4:00 pm where he gives his listeners no nonsense commentary and discussions on many prevailing issues and subject matter.

I have to say, I was impressed with him and look forward to our future interactions!

ICYMI - Kevin & Sam Sorbo - And Their New Movie "Let There Be Light"

Kevin Sorbo, Sam Sorbo, Behind Enemy Lines Radio
We are thrilled to welcome Kevin and Sam Sorbo back to the show!  Appearing together, Kevin and Sam have put together an amazing movie being released on October 27th - Let There Be Light.

Directed by Kevin and co-written by Sam, Let There Be Light introduces audiences to world-famous atheist Dr. Sol Harkens (played by Kevin), who delights in debating and defeating Christians, but is emotionally empty. Isolated from Katy (played by Sam), the wife he divorced following the harrowing loss of their first son, and a lousy part-time dad to their two younger boys (Kevin and Sam's sons!), his self-destruction culminates in a car crash that leaves him clinically dead for four minutes. The four-word message from that experience challenges his convictions, sending him into a panicked tailspin. Reluctantly leaning on his family’s forgiveness, love and faith, Sol struggles to find meaning and purpose in the words “LET THERE BE LIGHT.”

From the looks of the reactions from previews, this is a great movie!

We talk about the creative process that culminated into this film, the challenges of balancing work, family and faith, and how their work has been accepted in Hollywood.

Speaking of which, the film sets the backdrop for a great juxtaposition with the Emmy Awards and the politicization of consumer "art". Coming off of another ratings stinker, Gene discusses how the biggest star of the show - and the most talked about person - wasn't even in attendance! Is President Trump taking permanent residence in Hollywood's head?

ICYMI - NEVER Forget September 11th. Never.

To memorialize the 16th anniversary of the September 11th attacks, Behind Enemy Lines Radio wants no one to ever forget what happened that fateful day in 2001. Gene recounts his own personal story of that day, and plays some rarely heard radio runs from first responders in New York City. When you listen to those chilling accounts, how could anyone ever forget?

Then, we look forward. We talk with Don Black, president and CEO of Cornerstone Television Network, who mobilized The faith-based movement In God We Trust (IGWT) which get tens of thousands of Christians to pray, fast, and repent for the safety of our nation on September 11, 2017.

Don was responsible for cobbling together a unique coalition of broadcasting networks, statesmen, and denominational leaders, is uniting around the message for a renewed call to intercede for America. People like Gov. Mike Huckabee, Alveda King, and Dr. Pat Robertson, among others, lent their voices to a television special titled “In God We Trust – 9/11 Triumph from Tragedy,” that aired on Cornerstone Television Network with many other Christian broadcasting networks. Additionally, the group presented President Trump with a petition signed by 100,000 Christian citizens, asking him to issue a Presidential Proclamation designating 9/11 as an official day of prayer, fasting, and repentance.

Then, we lighten the mood and celebrate the release of Hillary Clinton's book! Long may she blame!

ICYMI: DACA Repeal Fallout!

DACA Fallout
You wanna know about DACA and what the repeal really means?

Check out Behind Enemy Lines Radio!

We un-packaged what DACA was, who it affects, what the Trump administration did this week in repealing it, and what it means politically and in real world terms. We also initiate a robust discussion about what is truly compassionate - passing clear law or leaving people in a lurch with a half-assed politicized decision that is fundamentally flawed, temporary and unconstitutional.

Gene also goes after the left's overreaction to its repeal.  And boy, is it real!  Get out your tissues, folks - there's a whole lot of crying going on!
