Lt. Col. James Harvey was a Tuskegee Airman and part of the first team to win the Top Gun competition.

Lt. Col. James Harvey finished combat training in 1945.  He was within an hour of leaving for Europe when he received the message to hold.  The war was over. Lt. Col. Harvey says that when Hitler knew that he was on the way, Hitler gave up. 

There clearly was racism in the military at that time. The 1925 Army War College’s assessment of the Negro Soldier makes Lt. Col. Harvey angry every time he reads it. So he decided that he would be the best. And he was.

He and his group won the 1949 Top Gun Competition. You’ll be fascinated with his story of the competition and his accomplishments.

Freedom vs Force. Force vs Freedom. Let’s have a conversation!

Partner with me as we engage in the “Battle of Ideas” occurring in our homes, our communities, our state and our nation. It is important to understand the issues so that we can converse with others in calm, reasonable voices. In order to preserve our Liberties, we must change hearts and minds.

Words are powerful. Ronald Reagan freed Berliners with the words, “Mr. Gorbachev, Tear down this wall!” My goal is that through my radio shows, website, social media, podcasts and women’s groups, I help you find the words to persuade those in your sphere of influence that Freedom is better than Force. If something is a good idea, it shouldn’t need force to implement it.

My business structure is unique. I purchase my airtime for my radio shows which means I have full editorial control of content, guests and the other projects. I welcome your partnership in keeping me on the air. In doing so, you will exponentially augment the good work that you are already involved in. Politics is downstream from culture which is downstream from education. Together we will engage and empower our fellow, hardworking Coloradans in the Battle of Ideas that is raging in our state.
