Ponder This:

Real public servants are free enterprising individuals who, inspired, embrace challenge, take risks, and create, sometimes big, and often, they create jobs in the process, all out of their ideas, and self initiative...

Tonight on Gadfly Radio w/ Martha & CalWatchDog's John Seiler, CA City Journal's Ben Boychuk, an Encore with Special Guest Anthony Krinsky on The "Don't Hold Us Back Coalition"

Gadfly Radio Tonight, at 8 PM PT

Live Call in number: 1-818-602-4929
November 1, 2011:  Tonight live at 8 p.m. PT on Gadfly Radio, Martha Montelongo along with Ben Boychuk of CA City Journal and John Seiler of CalWatchDog.com. And back for an encore, and because this topic spans across so many issues that plague our Country's current sorry state of affairs, we welcome back special guest Anthony Krinsky, the publisher of  Anthony Krinsky's Education Blog.

We'll talk with Krinsky on "The Don't Hold Us Back Coalition" pushing hard for real substantive reforms in L.A.U.S.D. Moreover, we'll talk with Krinsky about issues he raised last week and which we'll explore further including what the piece he posted by Ned Ryun, about Conservatives and the Tea Party means to him, and how he believes it plays out in the Education reform movement and its shortcomings?

From CalWatchDog, we'll talk with John about GM pulling its advertising from John and Ken on KFI. I got an email recently from a group called Cuentame, and it included a video of its Director or President Alex Caballero asserting that they were not backing down and that their intention to have John and Ken removed from the airwaves.

I bet there are a lot of groups that would love to have John and Ken removed, and many of them are in Sacramento, either as elected officials, lobbyists and or union bosses, all doing the work of backing the all powerful and in charge public employee army ruling CA.

This all mighty coalition includes the California Teacher's Union, the Prison Guards Union, CA law enforcement unions, the SEIU, and more. John and Ken lead the way to fight against police abuse of power and corruption.

John and Ken are powerful, influential voices for transparency and the rights and needs of free enterprising small businesses and wanna-be small businesses, if only those enterprising individuals can scale the ever growing snare of costs, fees, red tape, and cronyism.  

We'll take your calls, questions and comments on the air at 1-818-602-4929.


I am a stand for liberty, freedom and prosperity for all people; a stand for vibrant and innovative small businesses that create jobs, that in the process of prospering, nurture and support creative and dynamic culture, in the work place, and in our personal lives.

Botched Paramilitary Police Raids: An Epidemic of "Isolated Incidents"

"If a widespread pattern of [knock-and-announce] violations were shown . . . there would be reason for grave concern." —Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, in Hudson v. Michigan, June 15, 2006. An interactive map of botched SWAT and paramilitary police raids, released in conjunction with the Cato policy paper "Overkill: The Rise of Paramilitary Police Raids," by Radley Balko. What does this map mean? How to use this map View Original Map and Database


Death of an innocent. Death or injury of a police officer. Death of a nonviolent offender.
Raid on an innocent suspect. Other examples of paramilitary police excess. Unnecessary raids on doctors and sick people.
The proliferation of SWAT teams, police militarization, and the Drug War have given rise to a dramatic increase in the number of "no-knock" or "quick-knock" raids on suspected drug offenders. Because these raids are often conducted based on tips from notoriously unreliable confidential informants, police sometimes conduct SWAT-style raids on the wrong home, or on the homes of nonviolent, misdemeanor drug users. Such highly-volatile, overly confrontational tactics are bad enough when no one is hurt -- it's difficult to imagine the terror an innocent suspect or family faces when a SWAT team mistakenly breaks down their door in the middle of the night. But even more disturbing are the number of times such "wrong door" raids unnecessarily lead to the injury or death of suspects, bystanders, and police officers. Defenders of SWAT teams and paramilitary tactics say such incidents are isolated and rare. The map above aims to refute that notion.
