FairTax Pres. Steven L. Hays / ADF VP Kristen K. Waggoner - The Tami Jackson Show - 5/23
May 23, 2017 07:53 PM PDT
My first guest on the Tami Jackson Show* tonight will be Steven L. Hays.
Steven L. Hayes graduated with honors from the University of Arkansas and the University of San Francisco Law School.
As a self-described “recovering” tax attorney he spent considerable time and resources investigating alternatives to the income tax. Based on his research, including interviewing tax practitioners, business owners, employees and economists, he determined the best solution was to eliminate the income tax and the IRS and replace them with a national retail sales tax collected by the states.
In 1990, Mr. Hayes joined and became President of Citizens For An Alternative Tax System (CATS), a non-profit 501(c)(4) lobbying organization, which was the first organization dedicated to the idea of replacing the federal income tax with a national sales tax.
He was also instrumental in forming the Florida FairTax® Educational Association, Inc., (FFETA) and currently serves on the FFETA board of directors.
Hayes has appeared on hundreds of radio and television shows, had numerous articles published in newspapers and magazines, and regularly speaks to groups of citizens around the country about why we must eliminate the income tax and the IRS and replace them with a national retail sales tax.
Steve is the Chairman and President at FairTax.org and we'll discuss all that is going on with Trump/Congress’ pending tax reforms in the budget, tax reform/cut package of legislation and AHCA legislation.
Will these reforms take hold or will the media/Democrat Party thwart any and all efforts in Congress and the Executive to push forward the President’s legislative agenda with the current controversy regarding Russia?
Don't miss this conversation with the "rest of the story" vis-à-vis "the Fair Tax."
My second guest will be ADF VP Kristen K. Waggoner.
Kristen K. Waggoner serves as senior vice president of US legal advocacy, general counsel – Arizona, with Alliance Defending Freedom. In this role, Waggoner supervises a team of more than 50 attorneys and legal staff who specialize in constitutional law and focus on religious freedom, sanctity of life, and marriage and family.

May 16, 2017 07:16 PM PDT
My first guest on the Tami Jackson Show* tonight will be Gregg Keller.
Gregg Keller is the Treasurer of Citizens Against Corporate Bailouts (CACB).
Gregg Keller is widely regarded as one of the preeminent public affairs professionals in the country. Before founding Atlas Strategy Group, Keller helped lead two national public policy organizations, directed a national coalitions program for a presidential campaign and managed a nationally-watched U.S. Senate campaign.
Previously, Keller served as the National Executive Director of the Faith & Freedom Coalition (FFC). Founded by Ralph Reed, FFC is one of the country’s largest social conservative public policy organizations, with more than 700,000 members and affiliates in 30 states.
In 2010 FFC helped turnout the largest electoral participation by social conservative voters ever seen in a non-Presidential election. Under Keller’s leadership, FFC executed 58.8 million voter contacts to social conservative households in 2010, educating and turning out their voters in 24 states and 111 races.
A Missouri native, Gregg married his high school sweetheart, Lorie, his wife of 15 years. They have three children: Bobby, Eleanor and Elizabeth.
Citizens Against Corporate Bailouts (CACB) is a coalition of New Yorkers who have united to fight back against Governor Cuomo's so-called 'Clean Energy Standard' mandate - a massive tax hike that went into effect on April 1st, 2017. This brand new tax increase of $7.6 billion will be hidden on our electric bills, making us pay more to keep the lights on.
Even worse, it will be used to bailout upstate nuclear plants owned by Exelon, a big Chicago corporation, that is already making billions of dollars a year in profits. The profits are so large, that Exelon’s CEO’s salary was nearly $16 million last year.
CACB believes it is wrong for our hard earned money to be sent back to Chicago to line the pockets of a CEO. Even Exelon shareholders believe their CEO is paid too much.
New Yorkers already have some of the highest electricity bills in the country. And thanks to Governor Cuomo’s hidden tax, your bill just got higher.
Governor Cuomo is standing up for wealthy billionaires in Chicago. CACB is standing up for YOU.
Gregg and I will discuss the CACB new campaign against Cuomo’s nuclear bailout that will have national implications—becoming a model in other states across America.
In Gregg's words:
Governor Cuomo’s $8 Billion energy tax hike to prop up failing upstate nuclear plants is the largest middle class tax increase in decades….New York Senate Republicans have done nothing to stop this disastrous tax and it’s past time for them to stand up and fight it. CACB’s significant television ad buy targeting New York City, Long Island, and Albany will ensure that citizens demand action from Senators Joseph Griffo, John Flanagan, Elaine Phillips, and Carl Marcellino on this crucial issue.
My second guest tonight will be pundit, Timothy Shea.
Tim SheaTimothy Shea has been active in GOP politics deep behind enemy lines in the Northeast for over 40 years.
He has served as a Town Meeting Member, Town GOP Committee Member, and state convention delegate in Massachusetts.

Timothy and I will be talking about the the latest political topics: of course President Trump, the firing of Comey and Mainstream Media's devolution from lunacy to an outright coup.
And more! Timothy is a favorite of mine and my top-shelf listeners, and this will be fun!

Gang Of 405 5/6
May 06, 2017 08:01 AM PDT
Stephen Colbert said Donald Trump's mouth was Vladimir Putin's c*ock holster. Many people think that crosses a line and should cost him his job. Others like Sean Hannity don't support a campaign to get him fired. Of course, this hits close to home, since it just happened to Bill O'Reilly and the left is doing the same thing to Hannity. Apparently he thinks he can make this go away if our side just unilaterally disarms. Does that really work?
At the end of the day, does the Freedom Caucus deserve its bad rap? The group of conservatives in congress killed the first attempt at repealing Obamacare and was savaged - by the right. But now it's said they made it possible for the bill to pass this week and worked with President Trump better than Paul Ryan.
In a twist on the right's relationship with late night hosts, Sean Spicer says President Trump supports the goals of Jimmy Kimmel, who used a recent monolog to take a dig at Trump's effort to repeal and replace Obamacare. How's that for something completely different?

N. Scott Jones aka @POPSRadioPhil Kerpen / ADF Kellie Fiedorek - Tami Jackson Show - 5/2
May 02, 2017 07:27 PM PDT
In the first 1/2 hour I will be talking to Phil Kerpen.
Phil Kerpen 2Phil Kerpen is president of American Commitment, a nationally syndicated columnist, chairman of the Internet Freedom Coalition, and author of Democracy Denied.
Prior to joining American Commitment, Kerpen served as vice president for policy at Americans for Prosperity.
He has also worked as an analyst and researcher for the Free Enterprise Fund, the Club for Growth, and the Cato Institute.
A native of Brooklyn, N.Y., Kerpen resides in Washington, D.C., with his wife Joanna and their three children.
Phil and I will be chatting about “Net Neutrality” and why it should be ended.
Phil Kerpen argues that Obama’s Washington’s takeover of the Internet—a disaster for free speech, commerce, and the future of the Internet as a sphere of innovation—should be reversed.
For over a decade, professional liberal organizers and agitators—backed by a tidal wave of big liberal foundations and Silicon Valley corporate money—have told a bizarre scare story that without heavy-handed government regulation, Internet service providers (ISPs) will start blocking what websites you can go to and impeding free speech on the Internet.
No such thing happened in the approximately two decades that ISPs were unregulated “information services” under the 1996 Telecom Act. Indeed the opposite occurred as robust competition between phone and cable companies—and later wireless companies—drove speeds dramatically higher and consumers benefited from an Internet that innovated beyond our wildest dreams.
Listen in as Phil and I discuss the internet and free speech in the era of President Trump, and his article, "The Net Neutrality Noise Machine."
In the second 1/2 hour I will be joined by Kellie Fiedorek.
Kellie Fiedorek serves as legal counsel with Alliance Defending Freedom, where she is a member of the Alliance Advancement Team.
Since joining ADF in 2012, Fiedorek has defended religious liberty, marriage, and the family against legal attacks. She has authored federal and state legislation, and advised members of Congress, governors, state attorneys general, state legislators, and policy organizations on how to preserve First Amendment freedoms.
Fiedorek has testified before state legislatures across the country on the importance of safeguarding religious liberty, free speech, the sanctity of life, and the right to privacy. She has also litigated cases defending the constitutionally protected freedom of citizens to live and work according to their conscience. Her appellate advocacy practice has included authoring and coordinating amicus briefs for pivotal U.S. Supreme Court, federal court, and state court appellate cases.
Fiedorek earned her Juris Doctor from Ave Maria School of Law in 2009. Before graduating from law school, she completed the Alliance Defending Freedom leadership development program to become a Blackstone Fellow in 2008. She is a member of the state bar of Florida, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Supreme Court, and multiple federal appellate courts.
Kellie and I will have a conversation about:
Most Americans, including nearly 25% of those identifying as Democrat, favor common sense restrictions on Abortions.

Fox News thinks it can make all its problems go away by hiring a female CEO. Sean Hannity is fighting to keep his one time producer now co-President Bill Shine, but the Murdoch boys are "quietly" looking for his female replacement. Who would last in that job and what do the Murdochs want out of it? Public floggings of male employees? Fox is under attack because it's a successful conservative outlet - for now. Last week the left was after Hannity and Jesse Watters to quit. Does a female CEO make that go away?
Our grades for the first 100 days - for the media that is. Hundreds of millions are spent to trash Trump politically. A fraction of that is spent to attack the media, but Trump still beats the media. What's the sense of the media Agonizing over Trump's approval ratings when theirs are worse?
A 25-year old and Ja Rule concocted a destination music festival - in the Bahamas - for millionaires to mingle with girls in bikinis and top musical acts. It's called Fyre Festival. What could go wrong? Everything went wrong. Instead of gourmet meals the guests were given cheese sandwiches and instead of top accommodations they spent their nights in tent cities on the beach. The organizers say they learned their lesson and will be better prepared "next year." Oh yeah?
