Today’s Morning Zone: Shoebat, Seniors and Dr. Cochran, Too
Today on The Morning Zone:
7:07AM MST: Ted Shoebat will return as our guest. He is the son of Walid Shoebat, a former PLO terrorist. At age 16, Ted released his first book In Satan’s Footsteps, which has been followed up with, For God or For Tyranny, available now. Ted grew up in the U.S., in Northern California, attending the public school system. Because of his conservative and religious upbringing, he often struggled with his teachers and fellow students. He personally witnessed Holocaust denial, anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism in the schools and his defense of Israel and the Jewish people made him a victim of ridicule and mockery. At such a young age, Ted was inspired due to challenges and frustrations he faced from public schools he attended. Not only was he bombarded with criticism for his conservative and religious beliefs, but they also attempted to squelch his expression by labeling him with a psychological condition known as Asberger’s syndrome. Though the educational community thought it a stigma, Ted took it with pride, since it is said that Bill Gates and Albert Einstein were also diagnosed with Asberger’s, a personality that includes such positive human behaviors as loyalty, honesty and bluntness. Ted is the primary contributor for this amazing work of research and polemic—For God or For Tyranny. It is a timely work, based on the current state of our nation and the pivot point in the direction that America might take. What is even more amazing is Ted Shoebat was only 18 years old when this, his second book, went into publication. Today, Ted will be discussing that apprehended Jihadist that shows Islamic terror is not reserved only for Arabic Muslims.
7:37AM MST: Travis Lingenfelter from Pointe Frontier continues his series with us on aging and retirement talking about the silver alert. It is a public notification system in the United States to broadcast information about missing persons – especially seniors with Alzheimer’s Disease, dementia or other mental disabilities – in order to aid in their return. Silver Alerts use a wide array of media outlets—such as commercial radio stations, television stations, and cable TV—to broadcast information about missing persons. Silver Alerts also use variable-message signs on roadways to alert motorists to be on the lookout for missing seniors. In cases in which a missing person is believed to have gone missing on foot, Silver Alerts have used Reverse 911 or other emergency notification systems to notify nearby residents of the neighborhood surrounding the missing person’s last known location. Supporters of Silver Alert point to America’s growing elderly population as a reason to support new programs to locate missing seniors. Approximately 6 in 10 dementia victims will wander at least once, health care statistics show, and the numbers are growing worldwide, fueled primarily by Alzheimer’s disease. If not found within 24 hours, up to half of wandering seniors with dementia suffer serious injury or death.
8:07AM MST: Dr. Margaret Cochran returns along with her physician partner, Dr. David Waggoner. They will be continuing our previous discussion about the need for health care professionals to treat BOTH the mind and body whwen it comes to mental and emotional issues.
