Grit and Grace on CDN – August 29th

When: Thursday, August 29th, 9pm Eastern/6pm Pacific

Where: Grit and Grace on CDN on Blog Talk Radio

What: What does a Jewish Conservative originally from New Jersey and a former liberal turned Conservative Southern Baptist from Mississippi have in common? A whole lot of Grit and Grace! Please Join Jennifer Meadows and Josh Bernstein for one of the most content rich Conservative talk shows that takes an honest and raw look at the issues affecting or nation. The Grit and Grace show is one of a kind and we promise our listeners no talking points, just real solutions.

Tonight: Only 20,000 people showed for “MLK’s March on Washington” yesterday. Much less than the 100,000 that were expected. We’ll discuss
this and all the details of the event.

Both France and Britain change their tone on the Syrian conflict. Is a diplomatic solution the answer in Syria? …and WHY are we in this
war with Syria to begin with? What purpose does this serve for the Obama Administration?

At 9:30 pm Eastern our guest is Dr. Gordon Klingenschmitt, a former Navy Chaplain, who will tell his incredible personal story. He was
court-Martialed for praying in Jesus name at the White House several years ago. His continued fight for free speech and religious freedom
for the military eventually cost him his career, and a million dollar pension. He’s still an outspoken voice fighting for 1st Amendment rights
for our military men and women.

After 10:00 pm Eastern our own contributor, Joe Newby, and writer for the Examiner, will be with us to talk about Jesse Jackson’s recent
comments about the Tea Party and his comparison to the “resurrection of the Confederacy”. Also, Obama continues to blame others for his
political failures. He blames Rush Limbaugh for Washington gridlock. Privately, Obama claims that Republicans have expressed their fear
of Limbaugh!!! Goooo, RUSH!!!!!!

George W. Bush commemorates the 50th Anniversary of MLK’s March on Washington


Office of George W. Bush

Laura and I are proud to join our fellow Americans in commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington and Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech.

When Reverend King came to Washington, D.C., in the summer of 1963, his purpose was to hold our Nation to the standards spelled out in the Declaration of Independence. He called all of us to live up to that document’s fundamental promise and the underpinning of our founding – that all of us are created equal and endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights. From the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, with thousands gathered around him, Dr. King looked out over the American capital and uttered simple, powerful words that changed the hearts of millions. The dream he had spread a message of hope, justice, and brotherhood that took hold in the hearts of men and women around the world.

Our country has come a long way since that bright afternoon 50 years ago; yet our journey to justice is not complete. Just to the East of the Lincoln Memorial, where President Obama will speak on Wednesday, stands the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial. There on the National Mall our President, whose story reflects the promise of America, will help us honor the man who inspired millions to redeem that promise.

Dr. King was on this Earth just 39 years, but the ideals that guided his life of conscience and purpose are eternal. Honoring him requires the commitment of every one of us. There’s still a need for every American to help hasten the day when Dr. King’s vision is made real in every community – when what truly matters is not the color of a person’s skin, but the content of their character.

Laura and I thank the King family and all who work to carry on the legacy of a great man and the promise of a great Nation. May we continue to march toward the day when the dignity and humanity of every person is respected. And may God continue to bless America.
