(1) John J. Higgins & Barb Adams, When Fact and Fantasy Collide…
So “When is wiretapping not ‘wiretapping?'” Depends on whether you deal in fact or fantasy evidently.
This past week, senior officials in the administration (including Sean Spicer and VP Mike Pence) had the task of trying to explain and defend No. 45’s out-of-the-blue accusation that former president Barack Obama ordered the wiretapping of the Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential campaign. Sean Spicer even went so far as to point out “If you look at the president’s tweet, he said very clearly, quote, ‘wire tapping’–in quotes.” And that’s supposed to clarify the situation?
From alt-facts to now, apparently, an alt-reality, facts are colliding with fantasy on a daily basis with this administration. From bald-faced lies to outrageous statements, the very meaning of facts and truth are now in question: The president’s repeated claims that he, not Hillary Clinton, won the popular vote except for massive voter fraud (no evidence) or that he drew record inauguration crowds (photos clearly show otherwise). And on and on…
We now live in an age of Orwellian fantasy and falsehoods, with a president who has little or no regard for facts or the truth. We have come to a pivotal place in time in our country–will we continue to allow alt-facts and fantasy to replace reality or will we decide enough is enough–asserting that true knowledge is confirmed in facts? The choice is up to us.

(2) Gary Stone
Joining the show during the second hour is author and leading-edge wealth specialist Gary Stone. Gary will be discussing his book, Blueprint to Wealth: Financial Freedom in 15 Minutes a Week.
Research shows that returns from even the most popular retirement plans will fail to deliver the cash most Americans need to live the lifestyle they deserve during their Golden Years. Around 80% of current workers of all ages will not have enough retirement money to last a comfortable, independent retirement; and the primary reason people risk running out of money is that they’re making the wrong investment choices.
Gary Stone has combined 25 years of investment and stock market expertise into a book that opens the doors wide to dynamic wealth growth for anyone who can spare just 15 minutes a week. Through his invaluable blueprint, Gary offers far better choices to help you secure a comfortable and independent retirement.
Listen in to discover how financial freedom is possible in just 15 minutes per week; the three simple stock market strategies you can use to ensure you don’t retire poor; the two real secrets to growing your retirement nest egg; and whether you should trust your direct-contribution retirement plan to look after you at the end of your career.
Gary Stone has been investing, researching, and coaching in the stock market for over 25 years. He founded one of the world’s best-known Trading Systems–Share Profit Advantage (SPA3)–in 1995, and has empowered and trained thousands of everyday people to achieve a better life and retirement through stock-market investing. Gary has a BSc. in Mathematics and Computer Science. In addition, he has run many marathons and ultra-marathons and is a keen amateur golfer with a single-figure handicap.

(3) Dr. Jeanine Staples, Ph.D.
Harvard-educated professor, coach, and author Dr. Jeanine Staples joins the show in the third hour to discuss The Supreme Love Project (which she founded) and her book, The Revelations of Asher: Toward Supreme Love in Self.
Terror and love don’t typically go together in the same sentence but for more and more women the pairing has become a harsh reality. This is especially true in a post-9/11 world colliding with the Trump Era. In our day and age, acts of emotional, psychological, and physical violence play out publicly (in the mainstream media) and privately (in intimate partnerships). In light of all this, Jeanine Staples asks: How does terror in love impact the way women show up in relationships and how women operate in the world?
Born out of her research and teaching to support marginalized people, in particular Black women, The Supreme Love Project offers a more conscious way of loving and living in the world while helping women heal from relational and social t/Terrors.
Not just a lovey-dovey take on relationships or “self-help,” The Supreme Love Project is a raw look at how women heal from deep traumas using the tools of emotional literacy and emotional justice. Jeanine is on a mission to teach women how to turn toward Supreme Love in self, a concept that goes beyond the limits of self love.
In her book, The Revelations of Asher, she asks the tough questions women feel plagued with: Who am I? How did I get here? Why is this happening? What’s going to happen? What’s wrong with me? while also presenting rich examples of the real-life process of self-actualization.
Jeanine Staples is Associate Professor of Literacy and Language, African American Studies, and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at the Pennsylvania State University. Dr. Staples works to understand personal and public voices and stories to solve personal and public problems by researching the evolutionary nature and function of literacy and texts through the discourses of narrative research. She holds a Bachelor’s in English Literature and Urban Education from Howard University, a Master’s degree in Teaching and Curriculum from Harvard, and a Doctorate in Literacy and Language, with distinction, from the University of Pennsylvania. She has published internationally and her teaching has been nationally acclaimed. Dr. Staples is a sought-after scholar, educator, and coach and has received numerous awards and honors for her professional contributions to the field of literacy studies.
