Guest Occupation: Author/Information Activist
Guest Biography:

In A Lie Too Big to Fail, longtime Kennedy researcher (of both JFK and RFK) Lisa Pease lays out, in meticulous detail, how the Los Angeles Police Department silenced witnesses with evidence of conspiracy; how evidence was deliberately altered and, in some instances, destroyed; and how the justice system and the media failed to present the truth of the case to the public. Pease reveals how the trial was essentially a sham, and how the prosecution did not dare to follow where the evidence led.

A Lie Too Big to Fail asserts the idea that a government can never investigate itself in a crime of this magnitude. Was the convicted Sirhan Sirhan a willing participant? Or was he a mind-controlled assassin? It has fallen to independent researchers like Pease to lay out the evidence in a clear and concise manner, allowing readers to form their theories about this event. Pease places the history of this event in the context of the era and provides shocking overlaps between other high-profile murders and attempted murders of the time.

Lisa Pease goes further than anyone else in proving who likely planned the assassination, who the assassination team members were, and why Kennedy was deemed such a threat that he had to be taken out before he became President of the United States.

Lisa Pease is a lifelong information activist and a researcher. When she discovered that the Los Angeles Police Department’s records of the Robert Kennedy assassination were available at her local library, she spent many lunch hours, nights and weekends pouring through the files on microfilm to research that bizarre case. Lisa Pease co-editor and publisher of Probe Magazine (1995-2000). Lisa has been a featured speaker at several seminars in Dallas and Los Angeles. Lisa Pease is also the co-editor with James DiEugenio of The Assassinations (2003) that covers the deaths of John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Robert Kennedy, and Malcolm X.

Dr. Ryan Robinson
Guest Occupation: Chiropractic Physician and Functional Medicine provider
Guest Biography:

Dr. Ryan Robinson is from Kenosha, WI. He has his undergraduate degree in Exercise Sciences and his Doctorate from Palmer College of Chiropractic. He is a Chiropractic Physician and Functional Medicine provider. He is the sole owner of Fundamental Health, a family practice with an emphasis on working with athletes.

Fundamental Health is located right off of the intersection of Hwy 34 and Route 59 in Aurora, IL. This office takes a unique whole body holistic approach to healthcare by utilizing chiropractic and functional medicine.

The doctor aims to fix patients physical ailments via chiropractic adjustments. Dr. Ryan doesn’t just focus on the spine but instead is focused on “building the person from the ground up” by addressing leg length discrepancies and working on the feet so that each patient has a solid foundation to support the rest of the body. Only by addressing these underlying issues can a person remain pain-free. This practice can help with: neck pain, back pain, shoulder restriction or pain, headaches, sprained ankles, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, bursitis, tendonitis, knee pain, foot pain, bunions, and many other conditions.

What is functional medicine? Functional medicine is the future of healthcare (in my biased opinion)! Functional medicine is a patient-focused approach focused on the underlying causes of many chronic, debilitating and hard to treat diseases. Healthcare is focused on symptom control and very rarely looks at the causes of known conditions. Functional medicine can help prevent and detect diseases earlier. Through the use of advanced, specific lab testing, the physician can treat the pathology at the core of the problem. Functional medicine can help with: improving digestion, absorption and utilization of nutrients, addressing nutritional deficiencies, improving bowel elimination, brain fog, bone health, autoimmune conditions, weight loss, improving immune function, reducing oxidative stress, minimizing inflammation, improve blood sugar regulation, improve energy, combat stress, enhance metabolism, balance hormones and much more!

INGEZ RAMEAU

While living in Europe, Ingez was fortunate to have been exposed to countless different nationalities and languages which helped shape the woman she is today. Her life has been full of diversity, experience and travel and she continues to express her creativity through various art forms. She speaks, reads and writes German, Estonian and French.

Guest Biography:

Eleanor Clift is a columnist for the Daily Beast, an online publication. She writes about politics and policy in Washington, and the partisan clashes that make governing almost impossible. Clift has covered every presidential campaign since 1976 and bring her perspective to analyze the dynamics between an unconventional president and his party, and an opposition party still licking its wounds over its loss in 2016. Clift is best known as a panelist on the syndicated talk show, “The McLaughlin Group,” which ended a 34-year run with the death of the host in 2016. She has appeared as herself in several movies, including “Dave,” “Independence Day,” “Murder at 1600,” “Rising Sun,” and the CBS series, “Murphy Brown.” Clift and her late husband, Tom Brazaitis, who was a columnist for the Cleveland Plain Dealer, wrote two books together, “War Without Bloodshed: The Art of Politics” (Scribner, 1996), and “Madam President: Shattering the Last Glass Ceiling (Scribner, 2000). Madam President is available in paperback (Routledge Press). Clift’s book, “Founding Sisters,” is about the passage of the 19th amendment giving women the vote (John Wiley & Sons, 2003). Her recent book, “Two Weeks of Life: A Memoir of Love, Death and Politics” (Basic Books, 2008) is about the loss of her husband together with an examination of how we deal with death in America. “Selecting a President,” written with Matthew Spieler (Thomas Dunne Books), published in 2012, examines the process that for all its flaws is better than the alternative. Formerly Newsweek’s White House correspondent, Clift also served as congressional and political correspondent for six years. She was a key member of the magazine’s 1992 election team, following the campaign of Bill Clinton from the start to inauguration day. In June 1992 she was named Deputy Washington bureau chief.

She followed Carter to Washington to become Newsweek’s White House correspondent, a position she held until 1985.

Clift left Newsweek briefly in 1985 to serve as White House correspondent for The Los Angeles Times. She returned to Newsweek the following year to cover the Iran-Contra scandal, which embroiled President Reagan and tarnished his administration. Clift covered every presidential campaign since 1976, and was part of Newsweek’s special project team following the 1984, 2000, 2004 and 2008 elections, each of which resulted in a book. The most recent, “A Long Time Coming,” written by Evan Thomas and based on the Newsweek team’s reporting (Public Affairs, 2009) chronicles the history-making campaign of Barack Obama. Clift lives in Washington, D.C., where she is on the advisory council of the International Women’s Media Foundation, the board of the American News Women’s Club, the Board of Governor’s of the National Hospice Foundation, and the board of Respect Ability, which advocates for people with disabilities.

Wanda brings a remarkable artistic flare as she captures those treasured moments in life, moments that are meaningful to all of us from babies to weddings and all those special days in between.

Beautiful, contemporary portraits by a custom, boutique photography studio.

What I say ……

I have enjoyed many achievements in my life and am grateful for each of them – even my failures because through them I grew and stretched. But aside from adopting my two daughters – nothing fills me with such excitement and sense of accomplishment and purpose as helping women transform their perception of themselves and find their true inner beauty, freeze it for them and present it to them as a gift to cherish their whole lives. When a client says to me “feeling beautiful today made me feel like I can conquer anything!!”I want to bow my head in reverent gratitude for being a part of this amazing process. Sometimes I wish I were filthy rich so I wouldn’t even have to charge for this (…but I’m not….just sayin’).

What humbles me the most is the trust my clients give me – to coax, ever so gently - their fragile, beautiful selves out and encourage it to bloom and embrace all its fullness and magnificence. It’s an amazing experience to be part of. The connection I have with my clients is sacred and makes the whole experience much more than just a photo shoot – much more than just taking a photograph.

Celebrating … beauty!

I also have the ability to communicate with animals. I have many guides and guardians, including the seven Archangels and call upon them regularly to protect me whenever needed.

I have been seeing spirits since the age of two and had an experience at the age of six where I saw three spirits laying on cots. I was able to spell the burning flesh and assumed this was their way of telling me how they died. One spirit interacted with me and I later realized that this spirit was a guardian of mine.

When spirits come to me they take the form of silhouettes and I can see and speak to them. Sometimes they come to me seeking help wanting to get a message to a loved one that it is still living. These spirits see the light around me and know that they can trust me. I’ve even been told that spirits that are angry are scared of me because they know I am not afraid of them and I will not be intimidated…I see their truth.

When I do my readings for clients I have to tell them upfront that they cannot hide anything from me. I see it, hear it, and feel it. In order to help one unlock their Pandora’s Box I have to walk their life and uncover whatever secrets are hidden. Not everyone likes what they are told but what comes forward by their loved ones that have passed isn’t about me nor do I judge. I am a very blunt person. If I see it I say it. If they say it I tell it. I’m just the messenger and honestly, after it’s all over with I don’t even remember what is said. If I held on to all that I have seen and heard I would be living everyone’s life that I’ve ever read.

I have helped in many police cases dealing with missing children and runaways. I have a strong passion for helping kids and the elderly as these two groups have a hard time speaking for themselves.

I love my gifts and who I am. God made me this way for a reason and I will continue to use these gifts given to me by Him to help anyone that comes to me.
