PPR Upcoming Schedule

The last episode with Lee Culpepper as a guest was fantastic. He was knowledgeable and courteous, even when Mrs. Pistachio allowed her psychology background to get into the conversation. Thank you, Mr. Culpepper. It was a pleasure having you. Check out that episode HERE.

And I have got quite a schedule coming up for you, my faithful listeners to Political Pistachio Radio:

June 2: Cary Cartter of "It Is Obvious" and 2008 Presidential Candidate will be joining us to discuss politics, the war, and his bid for President of the United States.

June 9: Rob Ballister, Author of the book: God Does Have A Sense Of Humor will be on the show to not only talk about his book, but his incredible story regarding surviving cancer. Due to the recent news of my son being diagnosed with cancer, this definitely hits home.

June 16: Gary W. Moore, the author of Playing With The Enemy, comes back for a second PPR installment, and this time he is bringing along with him his publisher, Ted Savas. Perhaps Gary will have more news regarding the motion picture being filmed regarding his book! And on this episode we will give away two autographed copies of his books to two lucky Political Pistachio Radio listeners. Rules are: E-mail me a question you would like me to ask Gary, and the two best questions will be asked on the show, giving full credit to you (as well as a plug for your site), and you will receive (should you be the winner of one of the two questions that I and Mrs. Pistachio choose) an autographed copy of Gary's book, Playing With The Enemy (free of charge to you - publisher will also pay shipping and handling!) Oh, and until the show with Paul Couturier, the first interview with Gary W. Moore held the record for the most listened to PPR show. This will prove to be a very informative and enjoyable show.

June 23: Jeff Edwards, author of Torpedo, which is reminescent of Clancy, but in my opinion is better than most of what Clancy has ever written, will be our guest. Jeff is a retired U.S. Navy Chief Petty Officer, and an Anti-Submarine Warfare Specialist. He is currently working as an expert civilian advisor to the Naval Mine and Anti-Submarine Warfare Command, and Naval Space Warfare Systems Command. A combat veteran, Jeff is a recipient of the Combat Action Ribbon, the Navy Commendation Medal, the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, campaign ribbons for Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm, the liberation of Kuwait, and numerous other medals and citations. His naval career spanned more than two decades and half the globe - from chasing Soviet nuclear attack submarines during the Cold War, to launching cruise missiles in the Persian Gulf. Trained extensively in mainframe computers, weapons systems, and naval combat tactics, he brings an experience-based edge of authenticity to his writing. His novel, Torpedo was the winner of the 2005 Admiral Nimitz Award and the 2005 American Author Medal. Torpedo has recently been optioned by film producer Paul Sandberg (The Bourne Supremacy). Jeff is hard at work on his next novel, a naval thriller tentatively titled ‘The Seventh Angel.’ This is one episode of Political Pistachio Radio you don't want to miss!

June 30: Bob Anderson heads a grass roots effort for change - to re-Americanize America. What Are We Fighting For? is based on the tenets that the founding fathers of this great nation believed in their actions, and their actions matched their words. He believes that each citizen is required to earn and fight for his/her continued freedoms and the privilege of living in the United States of America. His organization believes that circumstances on both the global and national levels have conspired to create a set of conditions in which the liberties and freedoms won by our fore fathers and guaranteed by our Constitution are being and will continue to be eroded by special interest groups, rampant and uncontrolled illegal immigration, political agendas and biased news agencies more concerned with creating news than reporting it. His organization wishes to ignite, not inflame, that great “silent majority” of Americans that want to see this country return to its roots, protect its citizens and their rights to free speech, freedom of religion and those "unalienable rights to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness." Bob Anderson is a retired military man from the U.S. Air Force Reserve. He retired as a Chief Master Sergeant in 2006 with over 32 years of service. His last mission was a six month tour of duty in Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. While there, he served as the Chief Enlisted Manager of the 732d Expeditionary Security Forces Squadron. He was responsible for two law enforcement detachments and 32 military working dog teams. His 221 person squadron was scattered among 21 different locations throughout Iraq. While there, he traveled over 6000 miles in country in support of his troops. Bob’s military career has many highlights, including holding various positions, the most recent include the honor of serving as the Command Chief Master Sergeant of the 147th Fighting Wing at Ellington Field, Texas Air National Guard; as well as the Security Force Manager of the 917th Security Forces Squadron, Barksdale AFB, Louisiana. He received numerous awards and citations including the Bronze Star, Meritorious Service Medal/ 3 devices, Air Force Commendation/1 device, Air Force Achievement Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal and the Iraqi Freedom Medal. Bob is the founder of What Are We Fighting For?™, an organization focused on re-Americanizing America. He is also president of Back To Basics International, a professional speaking and training organization focusing on excellence and accountability. Bob is a published author and holds two Ph.D.’s. He is on the board of directors of the World Safety Organization, and a member of multiple associations including the National Speakers Association, Air Force Security Police Association, Air Force Sergeants Association, Air Force Association, American Legion and Veteran’s of Foreign Wars (VFW).

July 7: Paul Ibbetson is a published author and lecturer on the Patriot Act. He is a former Chief of Police of Cherryvale, Kansas, and member of the Montgomery County Drug Task Force. Paul received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Criminal Justice at Wichita State University, and is currently completing his PhD. in sociology at Kansas State University. Paul is the author of the book “Living under the Patriot Act: Educating a Society”, as well as director of the “Patriot Act Research Website”.

July 14: John Bootie will be our guest. He is an Independent candidate for President. He is a grass roots conservative who is tired of politics as usual. He will discuss his campaign, and what he plans to do for our country if he was elected as President of the United States of America.

Indoctrination of our Children

Join my guest, Lee Culpepper, and myself (along with Mrs. Pistachio) tomorrow on Political Pistachio Radio as we discuss the indoctrination of the youth of America through secular progressive teachings. We will also discuss the voucher plan that has been so far defeated by liberalism out of fear that it may make our schools actually have to compete with private schools, the teacher that decided to show Brokeback Mountain to her 12 year old students in Chicago, the teen accused of a hatecrime and jailed without bail for distributing anti-gay pamphlets on campus, and a whole plethora of issues affecting both us and our children as it pertains to the agenda to change America!

Are you ready for the truth? On Political Pistachio Radio the truth will be told!

Our guest, Warren Lee Culpepper, is currently writing his first book, Alone and Unafraid: One Marine's Counterattack Inside the Walls of Public Education. Additionally, he is a contributing columnist for The North Carolina Conservative, MichNews, The HinzSight Report, The Publius' Forum, and Culpepper: Marine Teaching Maniac.

Paul Couturier on PPR

Political Pistachio Radio is growing by leaps and bounds. Numbers are getting higher with each episode (though I have to admit the archive record held by the show with Gary W. Moore in April still stands unbeaten).

On Saturday, May 19, 2007 PPR welcomes Paul Couturier as our special guest. Paul's angry letter to the Democrats in Congress, Anti-war activists, and the Mainstream Media was posted on May 5 of this year at Kit Jarrell's Euphoric Reality. Click Here to read the letter.

Paul has been serving in the Army National Guard for 26 years. He served in Iraq as a part of Operation Iraqi Freedom from 2003 to 2004. He is looking forward to answering not only my questions, but the questions of PPR's listeners. He only asks that you remember he is still serving in the Guard so sometimes he will need to choose his words carefully. He is forthright and honest regarding the war, but will not place the troops at a disadvantage in any way, shape, or form.

To call in and join the conversation the phone number is: (646) 652-2940. You may also instant message me questions on Yahoo Messenger, ID douglasvgibbs.

Looking forward to the show. Tune in at

Exciting things are coming up for PPR

Political Pistachio Radio is moving up into the next tier by landing some very important guests. Here is the schedule coming up for the show:

Saturday, May 19, 2007 4pm Pacific/7pm Eastern, Armed Forces Day, we have a proud veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom, and a founding member of Catholic Veterans Against Kennedy, Kerry, and McGovern. Paul Couturier will be our guest to discuss the ongoing war in Iraq - and be aware, he is far from being politically correct.

Saturday, May 26, 2007 4pm Pacific/7pm Eastern, we will have Warren Lee Culpepper who is currently writing his book, "Alone and Unafraid: One Marine's Counterattack Inside the Walls of Public Education" on as a guest to discuss how our children are being indoctrinated in public schools. He is also a contributing columnist for The North Carolina Conservative, The HinzSight Report, The Publius' Forum, and Mich News dot com.

Saturday, June 2, 2007 4pm Pacific/7pm Eastern, we will have Cary Cartter of - or as some of you know it: I'm Thinking of the "O" Word (I meant Obvious, what were YOU thinking?). He will be on the show to discuss Election 2008, his write-in candidacy, and what is needed to return our nation to Conservative Values.

Saturday, June 9, 2007 4pm Pacific/7pm Eastern, myself and Mrs. Pistachio will carry on as usual - but who knows what guest may land on this episode.

Saturday, June 16, 2007 4pm Pacific/7pm Eastern, Gary Moore of "Playing With The Enemy" may join us (waiting for final affirmation). He was interviewed by Political Pistachio Radio on April 7, 2007 and that show has been the most listened to of all PPR episodes. He will be back the day before Father's Day one year prior to the release of the Major Motion Picture release of the movie based on his book about World War II, Baseball, and a field of broken dreams. Maybe we'll be able to get him to tell us who the big star is that the movie landed for one of the starring roles! Tune in and find out.

Saturday, May 12, 2007

After nearly two hours. . .

the show on May 12, 2007 finally wound down - and it was a good one (if you can tolerate my loud sound effects). Tune in at Blog Talk Radio to listen to the archive.

When Liberalism adds the straw that breaks the camel's back

This Saturday Political Pistachio Radio will return to its normal time at 4pm Pacific/7pm Eastern. I will address the latest on the political war over the war on terror, more Global Warming lies, liberal lunacy, a little more on abortion (such as how Nancy Pelosi has been told by the church not to call herself Catholic anymore because of her pro-abortion stance), how Mexico is strong against Central American Illegal Aliens, America's pursuit of "Pleasure", and how I wound up in a head-0n struggle against the illegal alien issue on my job (including a statement in Spanish against me by a Mexican that proclaim "Our Community, Our Rules." How will I get this all in during a one hour show? Tune in on Saturday and find out.

Tune in live, call in if you wish to join the debate, at (646) 652-2940, or listen to the archive later at the Political Pistachio Radio archive page. Also, I am trying an experiment.

Until tomorrow's show,

God Bless.
