So tune in tonight as I discuss “Will the Republicans win the Senate in 2014?”.

In a year when Republicans have been able to harness economic anxiety to their distinct advantage, the upcoming Senate election is crucial this year. It is increasingly clear that states such as, Colorado, Georgia, Iowa, Kansas and North Carolina will be the most crucial in determining which party controls the Senate.

According to CNN, nearly 7 in 10 Americans are angry at the direction the country is headed and 53% of Americans disapprove of President Barack Obama’s job performance and a dysfunctional Washington, two troubling signs for Democrats one week before the midterm elections.

Democrats are battling to try and save the Senate majority, while hoping to prevent more losses in the House, which the GOP controls by a 234 to 201 margin. Yet several state polls in the past month of contested races show that Democrats are in danger of losing control of the majority.

In the meantime, the GOP’s plan and position has been to block the vote. To discourage minorities from voting in those southern states where democratic president Barack Obama won big in 2008 and in 2012. 

What’s your opinion, will the GOP control the Senate?

Will you rock your vote or allow your state to block your vote?

Sound off here and I’ll see you on the air!

Why are women attracted to power? Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


Power plays a key role in attraction. All women are attracted to power. They want a guy who is powerful. There is however a misconception about power many men still struggle to understand this very day. They are unclear about what kind of power this is, that is so irresistible to the opposite sex.

When you think about powerful men, the first thing that might come to mind is money. Money represents power. And if a man has money, women will equate this to power. Why? Because women are attracted to power! 

Take Monica Lewinsky for example, she was attracted to former president Bill Clinton, why? Because he held the office of the most powerful man in the United States, he was president; the commander in chief. Like any female in Lewinsky’s position, she was willing to do anything for him based upon her attraction to his power.

Then you had late rapper Biggie Smalls, who lacked good looks but had women falling and fighting all over him left and right. Why? Because his talents gave him the title along with the money and power as one of the best hip hop artist of our time.

CEO's Blog, Conversations Of A Sistah, What she said

If Your Pastor is single…he’s OUT OF ORDER!! Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”

Jamal Bryant

Why is a single pastor OUT OF ORDER? Because marriage is considered a normal state, the married pastor has the protection of his wife. Not his mother, lover or undercover brother but the protection of his wife.

Your married pastor is supposed to have the status of a leader in the home, the fulfillment of the marital relationship and thus the freedom to relate to the congregation as one who is already committed within the covenant of marriage. Your pastor should also be one who is able to serve as a model for other men within the congregation and the watching community. If he (your pastor), is NOT operating within all of these and more, he’s OUT OF ORDER!!!

In 2012 I semi-addressed this topic in a blog post as to why I would not belong to a church where the Pastor is single. Why? Because I believe in this particular leadership position, one ought to have a partner to be an example for its members that; love, faithfulness and heterosexual relationships are God’s ultimate plan for man.

Join me tonight at 8:00 P.M. on “Conversations Of A Sistah” via “Conversations Live” for my commentary “If Your Pastor is single…he’s OUT OF ORDER”!!

CEO's Blog, Conversations Of A Sistah, Homosexuality, Politics

Politics & Policy, as a ‘Gay Republican Leader’ tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


The GOP is still struggling with the morality issue, the evolution of same sex marriage. While Democrats have moved quickly away from the idea that gay and lesbian relations are morally wrong, Republicans are moving much slower. In fact, they’re barely more accepting of homosexuality today than they were a decade ago.

The morality issue is a key one for Republicans. While it’s possible that Republicans who think homosexuality is morally wrong could still back same sex marriage, it’s much, much more unlikely that they will ever get to that point. Morality is, after all, the prevailing reason that people give for opposing gay marriage.

For now, Republicans who want to expand the party’s appeal to the gay community and avoid being on the wrong side of a fast-moving social issue will likely simply say that it’s an issue that should be left to the states.

Are GOP members in denial of no homosexuals in their Party? Will the party continue to ignore that same sex marriages exist? 

This is not the case with John M. Traier (pictured above), who began his career as a young republican in 1976 and has been involved in the Republican Party for 38 years and counting! John has spent his political career advancing Republican ideals and working to get Republican candidates elected into office.

John has been exceptionally successful in this position and became Passaic County’s Republican Chairman in 2012. John is openly gay and engaged to his partner of 27 years.

Join me tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah” via “Conversations Live” as I converse with Mr. Traier about his party’s position on homosexuality, same sex marriage and his goal of expanding the party base to a diverse groups of individuals.

As I’ve always stated before, we all have gifts to share and some of us were trained, ordained or taught to sustain such gifts. When we emanate our parents they pass the torch with these gifts, so that we can continue their legacy in some way or another.

This is the case with Mamie T. Gailes (pictured above), her love of cooking has been passed down from generation to generation. Her grandmother was an excellent cook and so was her mother and she is carrying this torch of talent because of her love for cooking from these women in her life.

Cooking is more than just mixing up ingredients. It’s about sharing my love for food with everyone I meet.

My zeal comes from my Mom (Bessie L. Thomas) she put so much passion into everything that she cooked.

Now it’s my turn to give you the finest, freshest & most flavorful meal that a Chef can serve. 

Mamie catered my very first book signing for my staff and the food was awesome to say the least. She comes from a family with a talent for the kitchen and a creativity in their desired fields of expertise.
