My thanks to the SHR Media Network for allowing me to broadcast in their studio and over their air twice weekly, Tuesdays and Thursdays, as well as appear on the Sack Heads Radio Show™ each Wednesday evening.
Tuesday night at the Saloon we devoted the entire first hour to an interview with Ken McClenton, owner of TECN, which is The Exceptional Conservative Network. Ken quantifies himself as an urban conservative whose mission is to spread the good news of Christianity, Conservatism, Capitalism and Constitutionalism throughout the world. He is devoted to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and believes that in order to save the United States, we must mutually pledge our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor to save urban America.
Ken grew up in a conservative Washington, DC household where education was valued and both parents instilled in Ken a thirst for knowledge, a love of the Bible, respect for others. At the age of 5, Ken was reading the Bible and preaching. He has a very deep interest in history and the law. He overcame a speech impediment by emulating Walter Cronkite. His father worked three jobs in order to put Ken into private school and, with that, Ken learned sacrifice, diligence, hard work and discipline.
In the 4th Grade, Ken told his father: “some day Dad, while you clean the floors of the US Senate, some day I’ll be able to speak from them.” Ken unequivocally states that his father is the most brilliant man he’s ever met to this day.
Instead of taking her family to the park, Ken’s mother took Ken to the library, saying “you ain’t gonna be like the rest of ’em. You’re going to be different.” Ken realized that the world isn’t fair, and that you can exceed the expectations of others while still being who you are.
He says he’s a “much better father than I am a husband.”
Then there was tragedy.
Ken had his entire life changed in 2015 when his lost his 27-year-old daughter, Charnice, to DC gun violence. His daughter was used as a human shield between two warring gang factions and was then dropped to the street, discarded, when she was hit.
“I’m almost home, Mom. I’m coming home,” Charnice texted that night.
She went home, indeed, just not in the way anyone anticipated that night.
I read the article and I was embarrassed for law enforcement. DC law enforcement let Ken and his family down abysmally.
The suspects were, as of this writing, never identified, found or held to justice. Charnice was waiting for her husband to come and never found him, cut down.
Ken didn’t rail against firearms manufacturers. He became more stolid, more resolute, determined to never give up, never give in, never give over.
God has comforted, matured and prepared Ken for battle, using him as His vessel.
Finally, we wrapped up the show with a discussion of the First Amendment and how we are in danger of losing the First in the United States.
