TEACHER TUESDAY SEGMENT, SPONSORED BY THE NATIONAL EDUCATION ASSOCIATION (NEA)

- John Havlicek, 20-year classroom veteran who teaches high school Spanish in La Crosse, Wisconsin. He'll talk about GOTV efforts in the Wisconsin gubernatorial race and why education is playing a big role in the Mary Burke v. Scott Walker race. John knows firsthand how public education has changed since Scott Walker took office four years ago. He's seen how bad education policies like voucher expansions have hurt kids. He’s working to get out the vote this election day because he knows just how much is at stake!

- Robert Gaines III, 8-year Special Education Paraprofessional from Saginaw, Michigan. Gaines works with 18-26 year old special needs students. We continue NEA Teacher Tuesday with a look at GOTV efforts in the Michigan gubernatorial race and why education is playing a big role in the Mark Schauer v. Rick Snyder race. Robert has been working in education for eight years and was recently featured in a TV ad that put the spotlight on Snyder’s education record.

Two more weeks until Election Day on November 4th - Midterm Politics - two big debates in New England tonight -- in the Brown-Shaheen NH Senate race & Coakley-Baker MA Governor's race! The GOP has no answers to America's problems but they're making gains by selling fear and getting a lot of media attention. Where and what is the winning Democratic message? Things are really heating up and the GOP messaging of "Fear & Incompetence" has taken on a life of its own with the recent Ebola scare. Brad's latest piece at US News talks about how the GOP-Blocked Surgeon General Nominee Vivek Murthy [is] Needed During Ebola Crisis.

- Nina Turner, Ohio Senate Minority Whip and Democratic Candidate for Ohio Secretary of State. Voting Rights activist. Two weeks left until the election, and with the Supreme Court's help, current Ohio Secretary of State John Husted and Governor Kasich were able to cut back Early Voting opportunities in Ohio. We'll ask Senator Turner how GOTV efforts and early voting are going in the state, as well as for her thoughts about the recent Supreme Court decision to uphold Texas' Voter ID Law. This is a critical election for Democrats - especially with respect to protecting voter access! Next Tuesday, October 28th, Senator Turner will be participating in a public debate with Libertarian candidate for Sec'y of State, Kevin Knedler at the Cleveland City Club. The Republican Incumbent, Sec'y John Husted, was invited but will not participate. CAMPAIGN WEBSITE: http://www.ninaturner.org

GUESTS FOR MONDAY OCTOBER 20, 2014 ON THE JEFF SANTOS SHOW: Political Messaging - GOP Pitching "Obama Incompetence" Over Ebola & The Dems Try To "Raise The Wage!" Hillary Clinton was campaigning on wage issues in Kentucky with Senate Candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes. Can the Dems own the minimum wage issue? Will it be drowned out by the ever-so-successful GOP messaging machine.

- John Nichols, Washington Correspondent for the Nation Magazine and co-author of the book Dollarocracy, How the Money and Media Election Complex is Destroying America. The Minimum Wage has become a prominent campaign issue and has been in the news lately - with Scott Walker fumbling over it during a debate last week saying there was basically no purpose to a Minimum Wage and Hillary Clinton campaigning on the issue with Alison Lundergan Grimes in Kentucky. How is it impacting things in the Mary Burke-Scott Walker, Wisconsin Governor's Race?

- John Businger, Former 30-year Massachusetts State Rep (D-Brookline) and advocate for voting rights and rail transportation. A regular contributor to the Jeff Santos Show.

- Earl Bender, President of Avenel Associates, political strategist at Totten Communications and regular contributor to the Jeff Santos Show. Ebola has not only become the top News story dominating media coverage, it has been turned into a political issue by Republicans and right wingers who want to present the handling of information and the first American cases of the disease as "further evidence of Obama's incompetence"! What is the GOP doing? What are their talking points? Is it working to sway voters? Can the Democrats turn this around by talking up the President's Accomplishments?

- John Nichols, Washington Correspondent for the Nation Magazine and co-author of the book Dollarocracy, How the Money and Media Election Complex is Destroying America.

GUESTS FOR WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 8, 2014 ON THE JEFF SANTOS SHOW: Ebola! And Turkey Ignores ISIS Encroachment on Border! Where are the Democrats? The first person diagnosed with Ebola in the U.S., Thomas Duncan, died today in Dallas. How is it impacting the way the U.S. is dealing with the disease? Are you feeling concerned about traveling? going to the hospital? ... Call 877-489-9421

- Melissa Hersh, Washington D.C.-based risk analyst and a Fellow of the Truman National Security Project. You can read her work at www.defenseone.com. The first person diagnosed with Ebola in the U.S., Thomas Duncan, died in Dallas today. That is certainly going to impact the general sense of unease people are feeling in the U.S. and Liberia about this outbreak. How can we best contain the disease and prevent it from turning into an outbreak over here? Our guest has an article that talks about how the U.S. Military is perfectly suited to help contain the disease because of their readiness to be trained for jobs such as mass fatalities and burials.

- Lawrence Korb, Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress. He is also a senior advisor to the Center for Defense Information and an adjunct professor at Georgetown University. Prior to joining American Progress, he was a senior fellow and director of national security studies at the Council on Foreign Relations. ISIS is moving in on the Turkish border, doing what some people are calling "ethnic cleansing" of Kurds there - the Turkish government is not responding to fend off ISIS. What kinds of problems is Turkey creating by their inaction? What is the U.S.'s next move?

- John Businger, Former 30-year Massachusetts State Rep (D-Brookline) and advocate for voting rights and rail transportation. A regular contributor to the Jeff Santos Show.

In Midterm Politics, a lot of people are wondering where the Democrats' message is. The President was out making the rounds last week, speaking about the widening wealth gap in America, which the President is calling the "defining challenge of our time". Is it too little too late or will the message pick up steam with Democrats?

GUESTS FOR MONDAY OCTOBER 6, 2014 ON THE JEFF SANTOS SHOW: Politics! The Koch Brothers Grooming New Governors & The Latest MA Congressional Race Polling! SCOTUS ignores & Thereby Upholds Marriage Equality! Republican 6th District candidate for Congress in Massachusetts makes gains on Democratic nominee Seth Moulton. Will the GOP make a gain here or can the Dems hold them off to fill John Tierney's seat? And We'll look at the significance of the Supreme Court deciding NOT to take any Same Sex Marriage Challenge Cases

- John Nichols, Washington Correspondent for the Nation Magazine and co-author of the book Dollarocracy, How the Money and Media Election Complex is Destroying America. Last summer the Koch Brothers held a summit for billionaires, where they groomed new gubernatorial candidates to follow in the footsteps of their champion puppet Governor, Wisconsin's Scott Walker. Here's an excerpt from John's article on the summit:
"Secret tapes of a June summit of wealthy donors organized by the Kochs reveal that top Republican gubernatorial prospects—including Nebraska’s Pete Ricketts and Arizona’s Doug Ducey—appeared before the group, as did Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and a cavalcade of Senate candidates that included Iowan Joni Ernst, Arkansas Congressman Tom Cotton and Colorado Congressman Cory Gardner."
Doug Ducey in Arizona and Pete Ricketts in Nebraska have both praised Scott Walker and associated themselves with him. Walker, in return, has endorsed both Ricketts and Ducey. At the Koch Brothers summit, Nichols reports that some of the biggest applause lines came when the candidates threw out anti-union lines against teachers and other unions. In another piece today at the Nation, John observes that it's pretty evident Hillary IS running for President, if you look at the Midterm schedule she is keeping.

- Spencer Kimball, Scholar-In-Residence, Department of Communication Studies, Emerson College.He teaches the Political Communication and Communication Studies Capstone courses for graduating seniors and is the advisor for the Emerson Pre-Law Society and the Emerson College Polling Society (ECPS). He is a Member of the American Association for Public Opinion Research (AAPOR), American Association of Political Consultants, (AAPC) and is certitfied in Human Subject research by the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI).Kimball is also a small business owner, serving as the founder and CEO of Kimball Political Consulting, LLC. In a poll that came out last week, the Republican challenger Richard Tisei has taken a slight lead over Democratic newcomer Seth Moulton at 41% to 39%. This is an improvement for Tisei over the few weeks since the previous poll in early September before the Primary when the candidates were at 44% to 36% with Moulton ahead! We'll take a look at the other big races in the state as well.

- Earl Bender, President of Avenel Associates, political strategist at Totten Communications and regular contributor to the Jeff Santos Show. The Supreme Court today on their first day back in session, refused to hear cases challenging Gay Marriage, and by not taking the cases, essentially validated Marriage Equality laws in states where same sex marriage laws were being challenged.... and in some possibly good news for Democrats, a new Bluegrass poll on the Kentucky Senate race has Alison Lundergan Grimes ahead of Mitch McConnell.

Jeff Santos Show 10/3/14

GUESTS FOR FRIDAY OCTOBER 3, 2014 ON THE JEFF SANTOS SHOW: Secretary of Labor Tom Perez Reports on Good Jobs Numbers! 248K Jobs 5.9% Unemployment! Plus A Little Sports & An Update On Hong Kong Protests! The national unemployment rate is down to 5.9% - the lowest it's been since 2008!. How are things looking where you live? And how do you feel about serious injuries and deaths from playing football? Should we be letting young people play this dangerous game?

- Jim Dean, Chair, Democracy for America (DFA). What is going on with the Democrats? Where are the national spokespeople and what is the message? Jim and his organization are dealing with on-the-ground politics and there's a lot of activity there, but there seems to be something missing overall. How do we build some momentum in the next few weeks before the November 4th Election? We'll check in with Jim about some of the candidates that DFA is endorsing too...

- Melissa Chan, correspondent for Al Jazeera America who previously served as Al Jazeera English’s China correspondent for five years before her expulsion from the country in 2012. She was the first foreign reporter expelled by Beijing in 14 years. As the channel's China correspondent, she covered everything from the economy, domestic politics, foreign policy, the environment, social justice, labor rights, to human rights. She has received multiple awards for her work and has also reported from South Korea, North Korea, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Mongolia, Moscow, Jerusalem, Ramallah, and Gaza. We'll talk with Melissa about the "Umbrella Movement" and the origin of the protests which started last week, mainly by students, protesting over a lack of ability for the citizens of Hong Kong to have any control over the officials who govern them. Hong Kong, a former British Colony which was returned to Chinese control in 1997, has always maintained a special status in China, but is their semi-autonomous status at risk? What are the protestors asking for and what is the likely outcome of all this? The protests have been going on all week, and last night, the protestors' camps were attacked by people who some said were "government thugs." The Hong Kong Chief has said that he would meet with protestors but will not step down, as many have demanded.

- U.S. Secretary of Labor, Thomas "Tom" Perez The September Employment Numbers are looking good, with non-farm jobs up by 248,000! That represents 55 consecutive months of job growth. According to the Labor Department report, 2014 has seen "the most robust year-to-date private-sector job growth since 1998". The overall unemployment rate is now at 5.9% (lowest since July 2008) and the Hispanic unemployment dropped 2 percentage points last year to 6.9%. Also, we'll ask the Secretary for an update on the President's Executive Order to increase the minimum wage for Federal Employees...the Final Rule in the process was issued this week. The rule provides guidance and sets standards for employers about which contracts and employees are covered under the Executive Order and what the record keeping requirements are, among other things. The new wage applies to contracts starting in 2015. What can we do to boost job growth even more?

- Earl Bender, President of Avenel Associates, political strategist at Totten Communications and regular contributor to the Jeff Santos Show. Week in review...Ebola, Secret Service, Football injuries, Baseball, Hong Kong independence AND the U.S. Supreme Court intervening in Ohio to reduce voting access for American citizens.

- Lance Gould, Executive Special Projects Editor, The Huffington Post, formerly with the Boston Phoenix. The week in sports! Derek Jeter retires with flair - and Red Sox Nation even behaved themselves for his final games at Fenway Park! And speaking of baseball, it's the MLB Baseball Playoffs! Teams are being eliminated...AND, on the less fun side of sports, more problems for football, with the sudden death of a young high school player after a collision Wednesday. There have been three high school football player deaths just this month. And the University of Michigan's football coach Brady Hoke is being heavily criticized for a questionable call where he sent a concussed player back onto the field after a collision. The woozy player was eventually taken out of the game and now some people think Hoke should be fired!

- Ed Wytkind President of the Transportation Trades Dept (TTD) of the AFL-CIO representing the interests of several million aviation, rail, transit, trucking, highway and longshore workers to give them a strong, united voice in Washington, D.C.

- Nina Turner, Ohio State Senate Minority Whip and Democratic Candidate for Secretary of State running against incumbent Republican John Husted. [Website: http://www.ninaturner.org/] Current Ohio Secretary of State John Husted got what he wanted this week when the U.S. Supreme Court upheld cuts to early voting in Ohio. Voters should have been able to start this past Tuesday. Background: The Republican legislature passed a bill limiting early voting in Ohio last February but a federal judge blocked it saying it violated the Voting Rights Act. The Supreme Court tag team of Roberts, Alito, Scalia, Thomas and Kennedy overturned the judge's ruling and put the early voting cuts back in place. Early voting won't start til next week and Sunday voting hours have been reduced.

GUESTS FOR WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 1, 2014 ON THE JEFF SANTOS SHOW: Secret Service Scrutinized Over Recent Lapses! Are you concerned for the President's safety under the current Secret Service management?

President Obama promised he'd announce "more aggressive US targets on emissions reductions next year" among other things. KEY STORIES RONA'S FOLLOWING THIS WEEK: The UN Climate Summit went better than Rona expected, with some exciting announcements: "The EU showed continuing leadership, pledging to spend 20% of its budget on climate action through 2020, incorporating it into every policy." And here's a Cool Idea - NYC homes being heated by BioGas - natural gas made from "local organic waste" collected from left-over food scraps from the school breakfast and lunch program!

Prior to these positions, she served as writer and Vice President for International Affairs for the Cousteau Society, whose President was explorer and filmmaker, Jacques-Yves Cousteau. California could do things to lead the way in addressing climate change by simply allowing voluntary "opt-ins" to its existing carbon cap-and-trade program.

- Jim Warren, NY Daily News Washington D.C. Bureau Chief, former managing editor at the Chicago Tribune. You can read his work at www.NYDailyNews.com and on their "Mouth of the Potomac" Blog.
