I’ll skip the cascading superlatives and just put it succinctly:
Jim Garrow, founder of the Bethune Institute, built 286 westernized schools in China. Founded “Pink Pagoda Girls”, a group which is in the business of saving infant girls from Chinese “gendercide”, by arranging adoption of these infant girls by couples who for whatever reason could not have children.
Carl Gallups has been a pastor and minister for many years. He also has a background in law enforcement, and he has authored a couple of New York Times best-sellers, “The Magic Man in the Sky”, and “The Rabbi who found Messiah”. Gallups has close personal ties to Mike Zullo, and has been very pro=active in pushing for the truth from the Joe Arpaio investigation, awaiting criminal charges against Barack Obama.
Often I have wished I could get both of these gentlemen together to have interaction which I believe will be of great benefit to the listeners!
The show airs from 3 to 5PM Eastern time Monday-Friday, with archived episodes rounding out the rest of the day with 24/7 show coverage and more!

OK friends and neighbors, this has been a month of trials and challenges…in fact a summer of them, and yet through faith in God and through the prayers of so many of you, we have continued to grow, to trust and to keep moving ahead.
The true wonder of God’s love for us is that even in and through the challenges, He continues to bless his faithful servants with strength and He continues to anoint His word as it goes forth into this lost and hurting world.
I have been searching for the right time to share with you all just how God has opened doors, opened hearts and has blessed my efforts in ways I can only describe as faith-affirming!
As the summer winds down and we head toward autumn, I have had occasion to look back at the past year, and I am truly humbled and thankful for the support God has provided. Producing a daily talk-show, especially in the face of the health challenges, and then to reach out to many like-minded patriots, and to find that God has paved the road for me, it is hard to believe and yet it is what I have learned to expect from God.
How else could we have met people like Dr. Jim Garrow, John R. Bolton, Dr. Mark Davis, Carl Gallups, and so many others, to build not only acquaintances but true friendships with these brothers(and sisters) in the cause of God-given liberty and freedom?
As a Christian, and as a patriot, I feel compelled to say that the time is short for us to fight for every soul, every heart and every mind. How can you see the panic, the unrest and the turmoil in this world and NOT recognize the season we are in the midst of??
The JJMcCartney Show is not a marketing ploy. It is not idle chit-chat. It is the vehicle by which I have been instructed to reach out to as many as will have ears to hear, and I cannot and must not and will not hesitate to proclaim the gospel, that is the SAVING GRACE of the LORD, Jesus!
I pray that God will continue to make me able to put forth this outreach, and to bring more and more people nearer to HIS truth, and that we can band together, bound in our love for the Lord, and in our faith and belief in the good and noble vision of our founders, built in the lasting faith in God, and I ask all of you to join me in praying that we can turn as many people as possible away from the vast wasteland that is the American pop culture, and back to the moral tenets, the tenets which our founders relied upon, to construct a morally upright nation.
Please help us continue to spread the word, and to turn America back toward God, and away from the haughty, narcissistic excesses that have led to the moral decay and rot which has become so pervasive.
Please share the show with your friends and family, and please continue to pray for our mission!
With so much breaking news around the world and here in the homeland, we’re always happy to welcome the input we get from Ambassador John Bolton.

We’ll get Ambassador Bolton’s thoughts on the riots in Ferguson Missouri, and why the story has been used to shove much more urgent matters off the front-page of the main-stream media.
We’ll also talk about the beheading of American photographer James Foley and why the Obama response has rung hollow with the American people.

This has been a very long week. It had to come to an end…and I am glad in a sense to see it go.
My body has been through a war with some of the nastiest germs and some of the nastiest antidotes I could imagine…and yet I know many are much worse off than I am.
This week brought me to a place of distress, exhaustion and a slight medical oversight which very nearly felled me.
Yet when the sun arose, and all the doctor visits were behind me, I was better off. The doctors are very pleased with my healing, and they are taking me off the meanest drugs they had me on. My body is weary from the battle waged between MRSA and Vankomycin. This is a colossal battle which in my case has been raging for almost two years.
And yet, now I am feeling myself emerging from a fog. I feel my body rewarding me for these past two months of good living. And the JJMcCartney Show is growing by leaps and bounds!
Spiritually, this experience has only galvanized my faith in God, through Jesus His Son, and the Holy Spirit which has never forsaken me, and has never left me alone.
Now…the weekly essay:
This week, many youngsters are heading back to school. College students are getting settled in their dorms. Football players are sweating through 2-a-days. A fresh new year of school awaits.
But as we usher our children off to their halls of learning, we must not entrust the schools and teachers with our children’s hearts and minds. We must set the standard for them. We must be the examples, the role models, and we must set high expectations on our kids.
Those high expectations will give our children a sense of direction, and they will know we love them because we are firm in setting boundaries. I feel truly sorry for those children whose parents abdicate their role as the true task-masters of their children, and instead trust a very flawed government and education system to “raise” their children.
Parenting is never going to be easy all the time. There will be trials, disagreements, and even some arguing and tears, but if you love your kids, you will participate in helping them make that difficult transition from innocent and care-free little children to young adults who have a strong moral compass and are ambitious to be the best people they can be in their adulthood.
George W. Bush had a phrase back in his 2000 campaign: We must not fail our children through the “soft bigotry of low expectations”. Let’s challenge our children to have high expectations of themselves, morally, academically, spiritually and emotionally.
There is only one sure way to give your kids the best chance in life: You must not be an absentee parent. Be there for PTA meetings, Be there for Scout meetings or Pinewood derbies.
Encourage them when they take an interest or show aptitude in a specific area of study, and take time to laugh, play, and engage in conversation with them. Don’t be overbearing or intrusive, but don’t be too hard to find, either.
As I look at the calendar, I realize that my youth is truly in the far distant past. Yet still, my Heavenly Father is still teaching me, laughing with me, and encouraging me.
I pray I can be the best father I can be, and that my daughter knows that my only hope for her is that she stands a bit stronger in the knowledge that she has a fan, an advocate, a friend, and a father and mother who love her more than we love life itself.
But I am sad for different reasons than many.
He made people laugh. That seems to be the golden goose in Hollywood. He became a talented dramatic actor, as well as a funny comic. His first comedy album was called “Reality: What a Concept”. Sadly, his reality is now a tragic one.
I cannot help but wonder about his soul. To the best of my knowledge, he was not a Christian. And as far as I could tell, he did not profess to being a believer in God.
As funny as he was, and as many good movies as he made, and as financially successful as he was, none of the trappings of his fame and fortune could buy happiness in his soul. He suffered from severe depression.
Some will cry out that depression is a valid mental disease. Perhaps there is evidence to suggest that, but what does a 63-year-old multimillionaire living in the lap of luxury have to feel depressed about?
I ask the same question about many other mega-successful stars who simply could not live with their fame and fortune. What leads to this kind of self-destruct? What could possess someone who had been given so much to toss away the very life that God had given them? What could fuel such despair?
Speaking as a guy who is fighting many maladies, a list that seems to grow with each passing year, I don’t understand how a person could grow to despise their own life?
I cannot in good conscience simply raise a glass and toast Robin Williams, not when I consider what he threw away. I can’t toast a life that came to such a senseless end.
Satan may celebrate Robin Williams life, but then he also may celebrate his death, tallying another soul in his column. And I am sure Whoopie Goldberg and Billy Crystal will lead the procession of “celebrants” at the funeral, and I suppose that stands to reason, considering who they have chosen to serve.
If that seems insensitive, I apologize. But when it comes to the disposition of a man’s soul, regardless of how many people loved his work, I mourn the loss, because it re-tells a sad tale which we have seen play out far too many time in this culture. Michael Jackson. Amy Winehouse, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, River Phoenix, Kurt Cobain, Whitney Houston, and far too many more which slip my mind at the moment.
Sad as the death of Robin Williams is, far too many will choose to toast his life, instead of seeing it as the cautionary tale it should be.
I am sad for his wife, his kids and his family. But I am mostly sad for Robin Williams.

This week, I made progress with the wound care doctor. They took me off of the wound-vac…the latest state-of-the-art technology helped speed my foot’s healing dramatically. in just six weeks, the wounds on my big toe and the top of my foot healed to such a degree that we are now simply dressing it with gauze and hydro-gel and they expect healing to continue nicely.
Today, for the first time in a very long time, I put on a pair of full-length blue-jeans, and a pair of actual shoes, and got to leave the house. We went to the new Ace Hardware store in Ogallala(very nice store, by the way), and then to Safeway for a few groceries. I returned home very tired, but also feeling victorious. I hope to go on more frequent excursions as the weeks go by.
As for the radio show, we have shattered our initial goal. My hope was that by our one-year anniversary on August 19th that we would have 100,000 listeners. I am pleased to report that as of right now, we have tallied over 120,000 and the numbers are growing very rapidly. I am seeing many more fans coming on board, and on social networks, the growth is most rapid.
And of course, the show itself continues to reach new heights. Since we initiated our 24/7 stream, we have seen steady growth, and aside from the occasional technical problem(ie: two shows playing at the same time), we seem to be rocketing upwards.
The YouTube channel is seeing lots of growth, especially from our friends at beforeitsnews.com. They have been very good about re-posting our YouTube archives, and driving traffic to the YouTube channel.
Then of course, the website, www.jjmccartney.com is also growing. We’re trying constantly to improve the site, and give it as many facelifts as Joan Rivers!
Please help us by continuing to share the show with your friends. The word-of-mouth network is as powerful as ever here on Facebook. You all have played a big part in our success thus far.
Lastly, I want to thank Sue at MountainViewOffgridLiving for being a sponsor of the show, as well as those listeners who have donated to our cause. We appreciate each and every one of you, and promise to continue working to bring you the very best show possible.

Our newest regular guest on the show, IQ Al Rassooli will be our guest on Wednesdays beginning next week.
But today, he will join us on Thursday.
So many topics to speak about. I will ask IQ for his assessment of the border situation, and ask him what could drive the twisted domestic policy of Obama, while his foreign policy is an atrocious failure.
We have heard ample information from IQ regarding the radical nature of Islam itself. As an Iraqi exile, and a former Muslim, Rassooli has vast depth in his understanding of what our enemies are thinking and what they are planning next.
It’s a DYNAMIC show and you can enjoy more just like it 24 hours a day seven days a week!
Yes, JJMcCartney 24/7 delivers anytime anywhere! And coming soon: The I-phone APP!
There are days when I forget that I am fighting Leukemia. There are days when I forget I have heart disease. There are days when I almost feel normal. And then there are these days.
I battle shingles pain which plays hide-and-seek in my upper back and shoulder blades. I fight a daily battle with diabetic neuropathy. I bear the scars of a bad lower back and half-baked surgery which leaves me with deep, sharp and stabbing pains. And then there are flair-ups of lymph-nodes which swell, painfully pressing on nerves and my lower abdomen and groin.
Then there is my right foot/big toe, where I am still healing from surgery to remove a bone spur which then got infected, which led to removal of most of the bone in my big toe. By the grace and mercy of God, it is healing well, with the aid of a wound vac, and the expert care of a team of nurses and doctors, who truly have a hand in miraculous healing.
For the most part, the process has been accompanied by mostly dull pain, but there are moments of deep and burning pain. Thankfully, neuropathy and neuralgia has dulled the sensation of bruising to a degree, but bad days like today do little to ease the real pain.
Were it not for my radio show, and God’s promise that he would give me two good hours a day to speak truth, and give my best effort to awaken the sleeping masses to the very real peril we face in this 21st century Babylonian society which has abandoned the principles and faith of our founding fathers, I might well have fallen into despair. But that simply is not in my DNA.
So, in spite of the fact that my body has been hurting today, I offer you the following essay…call it the Official JJ McCartney “manifesto”. Please share as you feel led.
The current state of this Amerika, where the body politic has raced headlong into the most unprecedented reckless spending binge in human history(while these pseudo-altruistic glory-seeking camera-hogs, drunk on unconstitutional powers they have vainly granted to themselves) indenture our children(as they pass along this legacy of narcissism, with all the self-control of a conference of gluttons at an all-you-can-eat buffet paid for by the patrons at the nearest homeless shelter!).
There is a town in New Mexico called “Truth or Consequences”, named after a TV game show of the same name. Sadly, today in Obama’s Amerika, a very large segment of our population has been fed a steady diet of lies instead of truth, while they have also been taught that they can live a life of pleasure, lust and ungoverned appetites, with zero personal consequence. They have been conditioned to take from people with scruples. They steal from the public trough, from victims who were raised to respect the law, and were taught that honest effort is the price free people must pay to keep their family fed and clothed and healthy and have a modest amount of creature-comforts.
The 47 percent of the population that receives government entitlement checks today while paying no taxes, are told by the Narcissist-in-Thief Bait-n-Switch Barry that it is their BIRTH-RIGHT to live the same lifestyle as the entrepreneur who worked his way through college with no help from anybody, who built a business on his own sweat, toil, knowledge and creativity, and who played by the rules of a crooked black-jack dealer who deals from a stacked deck. And while people like this entrepreneur have every right to complain about the corrupt government, they choose to pay their taxes, and take the risks with their own money, because they have an innate sense of obligation to their creator to not bury their talents in the ground, not while there are people who need work, and ideas that have yet to become viable wares which might help other people lead better lives.
If Amerika is ever going to be restored to The United States of America, it must begin by the men and women who pay the freight finally recognizing that the only way we can save this republic is for all of those who carry the tax burden to come together in one united purpose, which is to shut down the politician’s unlimited ATM machine, and replacing it with a very tightly monitored cash register, controlled by a hockey-mom who knows how to say NO to spend-crazy adolescents who have never before been slapped up-side their head with a heavy hand called reality.
Of course, this Atlas-Shrugged scenario cannot realistically take place unless and until we disassemble the cartel of rotten-to-the-core world bankers, elitist snobs who moonlight as global eco-terrorists as they try to soft-kill 95% of the world population so that they might live as monarchs in a “New World Order” where the rich are served by slaves.
As a true and sincere Christian, I realize that the machine I am warring against might very well crush people like me, in fulfillment of the last-day prophecies. But I cannot in good conscience make it easy for them to carry out their evil plans.
So there you go. If you have not yet checked out my radio show, here is the link.
