Ep. 12 Heather Shores, Historian: The Truth About Georgia Cherokee and other Native Americans
Heather Shores, Executive Director of the Chieftains Museum/Major Ridge Home in Rome, Georgia joins Robert to discuss the truth about the Indian Removal Act of 1830 and to clarify the culture and the humanity of the amazing Cherokee Nation at that time. We dig into the history of these incredibly smart, indigenous people who no matter how civilized and learned they became, were still forced from their lands (along with every single tribe) after multiple treaties with the United States government were rendered null time and time again. Robert also points to connections from the novel by Dee Brown, Creek Mary's Blood, a historical fiction novel, but one holding many many truths about the Native American experiences and we examine how the Native American women's roles were far more progressive than even today. Lastly the influence of the Civil Rights Movement is looked at in context with what the Native Americans did at that time as well.

Country Over Party With Dawn Riley, Former Republican DC Staffer
Great talk with Dawn Riley, Former Mitch McConnell DC staffer, and George W. Bush staffer on why she left the Republican Party and has become a registered Independent. She worked for the most powerful Senate Republican first, and then was called back to DC to work for George W. Bush. Even before our conversation got to two great calls: one from another former McConnell staffer, and the other from another former Republican, Dawn was already talking about the "Big Tent" and the reasons why she so passionately had to put her country before her party. A famous quote on an album from Dawn and your Co-Host's college days comes to mind...She brings all her equipment on the bus, and you can not ($#%^) with this band. Credit Violent Femmes Live Album. Please let us know you thoughts at 662-374-0778 and thanks once again for keeping an open mind for civil political discourse.

Episode 005: The 2020 Election Results
If there ever was a time our podcast could catch up to the present moment this is that time. We recorded the first segment of this episode two nights after Election Day. My laptop died after an hour and we picked it back up again in a day or so. Since then, we've put out a backlog of two other episodes and now this one and don, don, dahhhhhh... we still don't have an election final result. Unless you have been living under a rock you know that Donald Trump has not conceded the election to Joe Biden. We'll pick up the fine points of Trump's argument in another episode, but let me just go out on a limb here and state the obvious. Trump's people are making claims of election fraud in public speeches, but when they go to court (now over 20 times) the Trump lawyers are backing down and they won't mention their cases are about fraud. Reason being, in public you can lie about your predicament and as long as you aren't committing slander, you can get away with it. But, in court, if a lawyer knowingly lies, they can be held in contempt and it is a crime to do so. That is why, at this point, nearly all of team Trump's claims are baseless and getting thrown out of court and they never claim fraud exists. That is not opinion, that is the truth, but it still works to drive the emotion of team Trump. Ok, on with the show.

Episode 004: The Atlantic Article Part Two
We continue with the 2nd part of two episodes covering the Atlantic Article, written by Jeffrey Goldberg in which he claims unnamed sources within earshot of the president complained the POTUS, Donal Trump, among other things, called soldiers in the military "suckers, and losers" while he was visiting memorials in France to commemorate their service to the USA during World War II. For the first time we have listener feedback and we invite them and all our listeners to call back any time. Thanks to everyone for downloading this and all our episodes and give us a little review to if you can. Thanks and have a great day.

The Atlantic Article Part One
Think back to a time when life was much simpler. When we just had reporters saying POTUS Trump said unkind things, and he said the reporters who reported them needed to be fired because he didn't say them. Wellllll, we know he wasn't fond of John McCain, and we know he doesn't trust certain Left-leaning news media, but this time the The Atlantic article criticizing him is corroborated by none-other than someone from the Right-leaning Fox News. We dig into that subject so much it takes two podcast episodes to finish it. Join in and let us know what you think!

Introduction Part Two: The Truth Or Politics Podcast
We continue with Part 2 of our introductory episode. In this part, we discuss some common logical fallacies that we frequently hear and read in political party campaign speeches as well as in media coverage. We also discuss whether or not politicians should be allowed to exaggerate or lie to "win" their arguments. And finally, we cover instances of belittling others by both current major party nominee's for POTUS in 2020. As always, we point out there is their side of the story, there is the other side of the story, and somewhere in the middle lies the truth. Let us know what you think of our discussions and drop us a review on whatever platform you are using to listen to us. Thanks. Have a great day!

Introduction to The Truth Or Politics Podcast
Welcome everyone to the first episode of The Truth Or Politics Podcast. A podcast from our fledgling podcast company, About Y'Alls Media. Your co-hosts, Robert and Bradley, have worked ridiculously hard to post this political podcast dedicated to their high horse notion that politics should be discussed in a civil manner despite the sometimes dark shadow of bias. In fact, we maintain that political bias needs to come out of the shadows and be recognized by everyone as a fact of life. Speaking of facts, in this episode we try to set some ground rules for our discussions...those being it is ok to have a bias but we want to support our positions with as much fact as we can gather. And, no trolling. Not ever. You can join us on our Facebook Group site at The Truth Or Politics Podcast. And you can call us with your thoughts at 662-374-8034. There is a time limit of around 3 min. for your message, but go ahead and call us twice if you need more time. In the future, we plan to have interview guests and of course listener feedback. Please let us know how you feel and it would be great if you could help us grow by leaving a review. Thanks, and enjoy!
