The ONE YEAR Anniversary Special!!!

The ONE YEAR Anniversary Special!!!

Happy Anniversary!!

Has it REALLY been a year already? We decided to forego the usual format of our show and instead reminisce about our beginnings, our changes, our successes (and room for improvement), and play some of our best spoofs. We also talked about our plans and hopes for the future of our show.

When Proof offered us our own time slot on Sundays (after co-hosting on his show), we had a vague idea of what we wanted to accomplish…some political talk, maybe some interviews. Mélanie came up with the idea of DOG ABBY, which Jim thought was a silly idea, but went along with it. It has become one of Jim’s favorite parts of the show (you go, Abby!)

Eventually we decided to devote the second half of each show to an interview. Since then, we have booked authors, Vegas entertainers, political candidates of all stripes (no “gotchas” on this show, EVER!), renowned motivational speakers, you name it! The best is yet to come.

Jim has found his artistic groove again, writing spoofs and sketches for the show, which Mélanie records and produces. Jim says that he likes to take real-life situations (and stupid things politicians and pundits say) and stretch them into the absurd. He has had particular success with his character FBI Agent Orange. We played our series of Orange sketches, every single one of them based (sadly) on actual events. We also presented one of our CNN spoofs.

We then switched focus to the Dog Abby segment, which Mélanie produces. She puts herself into the mind of a Golden Retriever and helps give advice that is sweet, sensitive and simple, yet at the same time, wiser than that which most humans are equipped to give.

We are still looking for sponsors to help us upgrade our equipment and our production level. Please go to our Support Us page to find out how you can help!

Throughout the show, we received tributes from many guests and fans of the show. We are so grateful to you all…we wouldn’t be here without you! Also, special thanks to Proof Negative and Freedomizer Radio for the opportunity.

Year Two begins next week-don’t miss it!

Free Speech!

by Jim Moniz 0 Comments

Hi friends…

From everything I’ve noticed over the past year, and especially the last few months, is that the big internet companies (Facebook, Google, YouTube, Twitter, and others) are taking a decidedly unfair approach with monetization and with what they allow on their platforms. Many political bloggers and vloggers have found themselves marginalized, demonetized, and sometimes removed. This is being done in the name of protecting us from “hate speech,” when in fact, there isn’t any hate being expressed in 99+% of the cases. (The irony that these same companies are complaining about the rollback of “Net Neutrality” on the so-called rationale that it will give AT&T, Comcast, and others too much control over information is not lost on me, nor should it be lost on you. But I digress…)

I don’t care where you stand politically; this trend is alarming. We need to fight together to protect free speech. Although I most certainly intend to keep my “Twitbook” accounts open, I am planning to move more content to alternate services that are more open to free speech.

Please look for me under “James Moniz” or “jimtheactor” at these websites, and consider joining:

gab.ai

minds.com

bitchute.com (say that one very carefully!)

vid.me (UPDATE: Vidme is closing down 12/15/17)

I will be adding exclusive content to all of these soon. (I have already been posting on the first two.) Please join me.

For Freedom!

Jim

A Tired Old Man

A Tired Old Man

Most people who know me would say that I am generally a happy guy, and that not much gets to me. This is not one of those moments.

From a woman’s march partially led by a woman with ties to Hamas (in case you haven’t heard the news, Hamas is not a feminist-friendly organization), to protests in Berkeley against Ann Coulter and Milo Yiannopoulos (Berkeley? The Birthplace of the Free Speech Movement? Really?) and beyond, this has not always been a good year for the Jimster. Add to this that the mainstream media is using these events to further an agenda to separate us and keep buying the pills they peddle…

Folks, I’m just plain tired.

I’m tired of elected representatives who represent only themselves.

I’m tired of groups claiming to be anti-Fascist and anti-Nazi who put their message across using the same tactics as the groups they claim to oppose.

I’m tired of the media, pundits, and politicians who were gob-smacked on Election Day, and are trying to save face and get their revenge for being wrong by continuing false narratives about the President. (And no, I didn’t vote for him, so please, let’s not go there.)

I’m tired of our colleges and universities being infested with the Leaders of the Participation Trophy Movement.

Most of all, I am tired of these pathetic attempts to make me feel guilty for being White, Catholic, Libertarian, and (most of all) American. I refuse to accept responsibility for dreamed-up micro-aggressions or hallucinated advantages over my fellow humans.

I’m also pissed that Glen Campbell died.

I’m gonna go sit in a corner and watch Popeye cartoons. I’ll be less tired and cranky next time, I promise.

 

 

A Bold Move

Independence Day

 

When you think of the Fourth of July, what do you think about? Is it hot dogs and hamburgers, music, fireworks? Is it taking the day off from work, watching sports on TV, throwing back a few cold ones? Or is it something much more important?

 

Hardly anyone I know calls the 4th of July Independence Day any more. I realize it’s easier to say “Fourth of July” than it is to say “Independence Day.” (Fewer syllables? Rolls off the tongue better? Who knows…) I am just as guilty as anyone of using the shortcut most of the time. As we approach the anniversary of the adopting of the Declaration of Independence, I want to take some time to remind myself and others as to the significance of this day.

 

The signing of the Declaration of Independence from England was considered an act of treason by the Crown. The 56 men who signed this document knew they were putting their lives and their livelihoods at risk .They also knew they were putting the lives of their families and communities in jeopardy. But they moved forward with it, knowing that the time had come to sever governmental ties to a country they had found less and less in common with, but who was still regulating and taxing them. They put forth “the proposition that all men are created equal,” and that they had been granted “inalienable rights” to live their lives free from the tyranny of King George.

 

The British Empire was a dominating force in the world at that time, and it was folly to consider such a bold move against the status quo. Indeed, many fellow colonists preferred to stay part of Britain, for both economic and political reasons. (Sound familiar?)  Britain, of course, didn’t take this lying down, and war commenced.

 

Upon Britain’s surrender, the great experiment of the United States truly began. But none of this would have happened without the bold move of those 56 men in July of 1776.

 

So please take a moment this 4th to think about the real meaning of the day, and educate those who would diminish its meaning.
