'Enough Already' And `Good Riddance To Bill O'Reilly?` - Gang Of 405 4/22

Media elites on the right are at it again. They're cheering the demise of Bill O'Reilly? Conservative media elites never liked him, so they gladly handed him over to his attackers. His crime? He connected with flyover country like their pointy-headed purity polishing never could, so they say, "Good riddance." He won't be the last to be attacked. Who's next, and will the right wing gentry cut and run again?

Is safety vs. free speech a false alternative? When campuses uninvite conservative speakers, they reason they always give is that they can't guarantee security. In Oakland, persons engaging in assault are often college faculty and staff. Even the Mayor of Oakland is affiliated with an Antifa splinter group called BAMN, The Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, Integration & Immigrant Rights, and Fight for Equality By Any Means Necessary. It's an anti-Trump group and the Mayor, who is charged with keeping order, is part of it.

Are you starting to think Starbucks creates ill will on social media knowing they win in the end? This week they introduced a short-run Unicorn Frappuccino. It's coloring is, well, gay. Taste testers say it reminds them of stale cake and even some baristas are publicly complaining. The good news is, the drink is only being served through Sunday. What did they hope to accomplish with such kamikaze branding?

Capt. Roger Hill / Christiana Holcomb, Esq. - The Tami Jackson Show 4/18
Clean
April 18, 2017 07:49 PM PDT

My first guest on the Tami Jackson Show* tonight be Captain Roger Hill.

Captain Roger Hill is a West Point graduate, combat veteran and Bronze Star recipient who had dreamed of being a soldier since he was six years old. In 2007, Hill takes command of Dog Company, an 89-man unit of the famed 101st Airborne. The unit is full of rough-and-tumble men who are brilliant in combat but undisciplined at home. Through tough love, Hill and his First Sergeant, an old-school former drill instructor named Tommy Scott, turn the company into the top performers in the battalion.

In 2008, Hill and Scott lead Dog Company into combat in Wardak, the most violent province in eastern Afghanistan. For six months, the unit faces off against the Taliban. They survive ambushes, rocket fire and IEDs almost daily, and the number of wounded cuts into Hill’s unit by a third. Meanwhile, Hill himself battles his own battalion commander, a charismatic but archly political man who threatens to relieve Hill at every turn.

After two Dog Company soldiers die in combat, Hill, Scott and a counterintelligence team learn the reason for the mounting casualties: A dozen Taliban spies posing as local national workers have infiltrated their base. After he captures the spies, Hill is abandoned by his higher command, setting off a ticking clock: he has just 96 hours to either release the spies and expose Dog Company to further casualties — or defy the Army’s rules on prisoner treatment.

In a true story that weaves the combat action of Band of Brothers with the military courtroom drama of A Few Good Men, Hill and Scott must ultimately choose: Sacrifice their careers or sacrifice their men.

Capt. Hill and Lynn Vincent detail the true story in a new book, sure to be a best seller, Dog Company: A True Story of American Soldiers Abandoned by Their High Command.

Listen as Capt. Hill and I discuss how current Rules of Engagement (ROE) are politically motivated and represent a grave danger to troops on the ground. This segment is guaranteed to make every patriot steaming mad!

*******************

In the second 1/2 hour I will be joined by Christiana Holcomb.

Christiana Holcomb, Esq., serves as legal counsel for Alliance Defending Freedom, where she is an invaluable member of the Center for Christian Ministries.

Since joining ADF in 2012, Holcomb has worked to protect the freedom of churches, Christian schools, and Christian ministries to freely exercise their faith without government interference.

She also advocates for these issues as an Alliance Defending Freedom Regional Legal Academy faculty member and as a conference speaker throughout the country.

Holcomb earned her J.D. at Oak Brook College, graduating summa cum laude in 2010. She also completed the Alliance Defending Freedom leadership development program to become a Blackstone Fellow in 2010. She is admitted to the bar in California and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit.

Christiana will be Erik Stanley's Deputy on the “The Playground Case,” the biggest case left on the SCOTUS docket, which will be heard on Wednesday, April 19.

Trinity Lutheran Church of Columbia, Inc. v. Pauley, dubbed “The Playground Case.” ABC called it “the most anticipated case in the April sitting.” Fox further described it as “arguably the biggest church-state case in recent memory.”

Trinity Lutheran Church of Columbia, Inc. v. Pauley involves a Lutheran preschool in Columbia, Missouri that was denied state funds to improve its public playground due to a law prohibiting government aid to religious schools.

This case needs to be watched particularly closely because it will be the barometer for years worth of rulings striking at the heart of America's culture and political war. In fact, on Monday, April 17, just two days before "The Playground Case," the Supreme Court "DISTRIBUTED for Conference" the extremely controversial Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission for possible hearing later this fall.

Behind the case representing Trinity Lutheran (and Masterpiece Cakeshop) is Erik Stanley of Alliance Defending Freedom.

This will be such a timely discussion: Eric Stanley, Christiana Holcomb, and the rest of the ADF legal team have been working tirelessly on this case, scheduled on the SCOTUS docket for tomorrow morning, Wednesday, April 19. And now that the High Court is at full complement with newly sworn in Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch, Americans will eagerly await the court's opinion.

What Happened To Following Police Orders...On An Airplane? 4/15

Washingtonians have a stick up their a** about airlines. They act like they never get the respect they deserve on their flights over flyover country. So it's not surprising when Dr. David Dao refused to peacefully leave a United flight in Chicago, DC conservative pundits were quick to find all fault with the airline. Three others left the plane when asked. Dao made a scene. Can you think of other cases where the right sides with the guy resisting arrest? Of course, Dao will make out on his court settlement. Any DC conservatives still want to argue tort reform? Are the cops and the airline entirely to blame here?

Donald Trump is getting noise from some on the right about his immigration policy. In fairness, DACA was not ended as Trump campaigned it would be. But Attorney General Jeff Sessions is quietly assembling nothing short of a deportation force. The left is mortified. Is the right justified in attacking Trump's immigration policy?

A little navel gazing here. Who are we and why are we here? In other words, are podcasters and thought writers expecting too much when they desire to change the world or even the country? It's a segment about a 405 Media partner who stopped doing his podcast recently and expressed his frustrations

Shaun McCutcheon / Elbert Guillory - The Tami Jackson Show 4/11
Clean
April 11, 2017 07:34 PM PDT
itunes pic

My first guest on the Tami Jackson Show* tonight will be Shaun McCutcheon.

Shaun McCutcheon was the plaintiff in McCutcheon v. FEC landmark free speech SCOTUS case.

On April 2, 2014, the Supreme Court issued a ruling in McCutcheon v. FEC that struck down the aggregate limits on the amount an individual may contribute during a two-year period to all federal candidates, parties and political action committees combined.

By a vote of 5-4, the Court ruled that the biennial aggregate limits are unconstitutional under the First Amendment.

McCutcheon, ConservativeActionFund.com Chairman, was a Alabama Trump Delegate.

Shaun and I will talking about the newest U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch in light of Shaun's recent articles, "Democrats Eviscerated Gorsuch for 'Not Standing Up for the Little Guy’ — But That’s Not a Judge’s Job" and "Gorsuch Is Restoring Lost Faith in Government."

This will be an interesting and very timely conversation about SCOTUS and the role of Supreme Court justices.

*******************

In the second 1/2 hour I will be joined by Elbert Guillory.

Elbert Lee Guillory recently completed a decade long stint in the Louisiana Legislature, where as State Senator he worked closely with the Jindal administration to create landmark school choice legislation for underprivileged students in Louisiana.

Originally elected as a Democrat, Guillory made national news by switching to the Republican Party in June of 2013.

In a video statement titled "Why I Became a Republican", Guillory famously articulated why he had chose to "escape the Government Plantation and the Party of Disappointment" and join the party of Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass.

In 2014, Elbert Guillory would play a critical role in the defeat of Senator Mary Landrieu in his home state.

Guillory has made numerous TV and radio appearances with Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Neil Cavuto and others. He has been featured in National Review Online, The Weekly Standard and the Wall Street Journal, to name just a few.

Elbert Lee Guillory was raised in Opelousas - a small Louisiana farm community where he still resides today. His small law office sits on the same land where his ancestors toiled away as slaves. Elbert was arrested once - for reading books at a "Whites Only" library. Experiences like these drove a young Elbert to join the Navy. In his own words, "wearing that uniform, no one could tell me what water fountain to drink from or where to sit on the bus."

After serving honorably in the Navy and completing undergraduate studies at Norfolk University in Virginia, his passion for equality and change led him to the blossoming civil rights law program at Rutgers Law School. He shined as a student there and spent the subsequent year, after receiving his Juris Doctorate, teaching at the university.

Guillory went on to work in the Nixon Administration as a Civil Rights Attorney and his next job took him to Annapolis to serve under Gov. Marvin Mandel, prosecuting Civil Rights cases on behalf of the Maryland state government.

Born in 1944, Elbert Guillory has seen what he calls the "rise and fall" of the so-called Great Society. Elbert remains a loud voice for free markets, strong families, independence from government programs, gun ownership and school choice. Telling the real truth about the Democrat Party's incentive to control and manipulate the black community - purely for votes - remains the driving message behind Elbert Guillory's America.

I wrote about Mr. Guillory's party change in 2013 and featured this video:

Listen in as I have a conversation with Elbert Guillory about his Free At Last Pac, the Second Amendment, the election of Donald J. Trump, and successfully messaging the black community with conservative principles!

Neocons Run To Trump After Syria; True Believers Triggered - Gang Of 405 4/8

Neoconservatives' and moderates' sudden lovevest for Trump seems to come at a cost of his true believers. If Trump makes Lindsey Graham, John McCain, Bill Kristol and Bret Stephens happy with the airstrike on Syria, that can't be good for Trumpism, right? Coulter, Ingraham, Mike Cernovich? The Trumpists who signed up for the end to endless wars have a bad feeling about this. Will the neocons' exuberance and the true believers' misgivings blow over?

Bill O'Reilly is under siege but Fox News Channel is standing by their man. CNN and others have orchestrated a campaign to cause O'Reilly's sponsors to flee. The basis for this is several accusations of sexual wrongdoing, which were settled by Fox out of court. These are not recent stories yet only now has the flame been turned up on O'Reilly and Fox. His show ratings are better than ever, his book sales are not suffering, and Fox shows no signs of flinching.

A Dallas startup is using robot lawnmowers. Is your job next? It's estimated 47% of jobs will be automated by 2034 and there's no turning back. Are people justified in being paranoid?

Author/Former LA State Rep. Brian Trascher / Author George Carneal - Tami Jackson Show 4/4
Clean
April 04, 2017 07:19 PM PDT

My first guest on the Tami Jackson Show* will be Brian Trascher.

Brian S. Trascher is a New Orleans businessman who has helped to bridge the divide that often exists between business and politics. As a Senior Partner at Gulf South Strategies, a local governmental relations and business development firm, Brian has worked to give both access and a voice in local and state government to a diverse roster of clients that spans everything from local non-profit organizations to multi-billion dollar corporations on the Fortune 500 list.

As the Principal of Laws and Sausage, LLC, Brian S. Trascher delivers keynote speeches about the public policy process to corporations and trade organizations. Brian also offers corporate consulting and training through the Laws and Sausage Citizen Advocacy Workshop.

Brian met Donald J. Trump at the SRLC in New Orleans in January 2012 and told Donald that if he decided to run for President, he would be excited to serve his campaign. They stayed in touch periodically and in January 2016 Brian was honored to be named to the Trump for Louisiana State Leadership Team.

Trascher is a former LA State Rep, was the Louisiana advisor to the Trump Transition Team re AHCA, Repeal and Replace, and Gorsuch.

Brian is also the author of the new book (Feb 2017) Laws and Sausage: You Never Want To See Either One Get Made! -- tips and tricks on how anyone can influence the public policy process.

Listen as Brian and I discuss his work with the Trump team and his experience at the Inauguration, his book, his assessment on the Trump administration thus far, the Gorsuch appointment and more!

******************

In the second 1/2 hour I will be joined by George Carneal.

George is the author of August 2016 book, From Queer To Christ: My Journey Into the Light.

George Carneal grew up in the ’70s, raised by a Southern Baptist minister in the ultra-conservative Bible Belt where his world revolved around the church, country fried chicken and trying to fit in with other boys.

As disco music pulsated through the speakers in his bedroom, he plotted his escape from the misery and boredom of Southern suburbia before landing in Los Angeles, a city of glitz and hedonism.

Much like Alice as she traveled through the looking glass, this is George’s journey through a queer culture fantasyland filled with drag queens, drugs and dangerous situations before discovering healing, joy and peace in Christ.

This true story (which can be found at his website GeorgeCarneal.com) details his struggles in a religious world at odds with, and often hostile toward homosexuals.

George and I will talk about his story, his leaving the homosexual lifestyle, and the absolute vitriol he now encounters regularly from the LGBT community and activists as he tries to spread a message of love and hope.

This will be an uplifting, absolutely politically UNcorrect conversation you don't want to miss!

Follow Brian on Twitter at @lawsNsausage, George at @george_carneal, and me at @tamij AND tweet your questions/comments during the show using hashtag #tjrs.

Will The Freedom Caucus Cave Like They Did On Ryan Speakership? Gang Of 405 4/1
Clean
April 01, 2017 08:00 AM PDT

The House Freedom Caucus killed the vote on Paul Ryan's supposed replacement for Obamacare. Mark Meadows and all the rest wanted to be thanked for heading off what they considered a mistake - that is - anything short of full repeal. Ryan argued it was not viable legislatively and instead proposed repeal in three pieces. Donald Trump was behind the Ryan effort. After it crashed and burned, Trump attacked the Freedom Caucus on Twitter. On Friday they signaled they might moderate. After all, the Freedom Caucus moderated enough to elect Paul Ryan Speaker.

Since 2002 Mike Pence has not dined alone with women, and he never attends events where alcohol is served – which in public life is probably all of them – unless his wife is present. Most of us who think straight get where he’s coming from. It doesn’t take much to get the ball rolling with accusations of sexual impropriety, especially for public figures. Understand Pence has done this long before Donald Trump came into his life. The left has attacked Pence, calling the behavior backward and even insulting to women since it implies they might wrongly accuse him. In a profession, politics, where there is an abundance of temptation and even serial marriages, is Mike Pence doing the right thing.

Speaking of dining out, a North Carolina restaurant recently banned children. They drew the ire of critics, but now business is booming. So this is how you get to zero population growth!
