The People Speak

The People Speak with Cindy Sheehan
Show Host: 
The People Speak with Cindy Sheehan
Please help support The People Speak with your contribution.

The People Speak has evolved, over the years, with many great guests who have been interviewed by some very fine hosts. Cindy Sheehan - the 'Peace Mom' -- now hosts the show and I can't think of anyone more appropriate especially during this turbulent time in human history.

Cindy Sheehan has done so much for the Peace Movement starting with her Camp Casey campaign during the Iraq War which was recognized with a Nobel Peace Prize nomination. She has been the most morally consistent person I know and maintained the same philosophy of peaceful activism, against war and violence, no matter if it was a Republican or Democrat President or Congress in charge of America's never ending foreign conflicts of aggression, oppression and predation. She has traveled the world and been involved in countless campaigns for humanitarian causes on so many different issues - environmental, social, and political.

Cindy represents for me a bright beacon of hope and light, inspiring and informing others with peaceful strategies via her blog site (http://cindysheehanssoapbox.blogspot.com) and her radio interviews which can be heard here and via Cindy Sheehan's Soapbox radio show at her blog site.

Cindy carries on the mission statement of The People Speak through informative shows, blogs, and personal example, making a difference for the better in this world.

I am proud and happy to have Cindy Sheehan as host of The People Speak.

Guest, Dan Christensen

Guest Name: 
Dan Christensen
Guest Occupation: 
Editor Florida Bulldog
Guest Biography: 
Dan founded Florida Bulldog in 2009 using the name Broward Bulldog. He is an award-winning former investigative reporter for The Miami Herald and Daily Business Review, and one of South Florida’s most experienced reporters. He holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in political science from the University of Miami.
Dan’s stories about Broward Sheriff Ken Jenne’s private business dealings sparked a federal corruption investigation that landed Jenne in prison in 2007. His stories about hidden and falsified court records in Broward, Miami-Dade and elsewhere in Florida for The Miami Herald in 2006 led to a pair of unanimous Florida Supreme Court decisions in 2007 and 2010 outlawing those practices.
Similar stories for the Daily Business Review in 2003-2004 exposed excessive secrecy in the federal courts. The executive director of the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press later called Dan “the nation’s leading journalist on an issue of tremendous First Amendment importance: the increasing trend toward secrecy in our nation’s courts.”
In 2000-2001, Dan’s reporting about a deadly gun-planting conspiracy and cover-up by Miami police resulted in the indictment of more than a dozen officers and significant governmental reform, including the establishment of Miami’s long sought civilian review panel.
