Author David Thomas Roberts / Pundit Timothy Shea - The Tami Jackson Show
August 28, 2018 07:35 PM PDT
My first guest on the Tami Jackson Show* tonight will be David Thomas Roberts.
Demand for a sequel to the action-packed plot was carried forward in the second book, A State of Treason, which won numerous awards, including several Best Fiction Book of the Year 2016 awards from notable book clubs.
Roberts' fourth book, Purge on the Potomac, is set for release August 30, 2018.
A synopsis of Purge on the Potomac:
Roberts' latest, action-filled political thriller, titled, "Purge on the Potomac," finds iconic Texas Ranger, Pops Younger, at the crossroads of his legendary career faced with defying his oath of office to defend the Constitution against all enemies-foreign and domestic.
A bloated federal government that has overreached its authority and encroached on Texans' civil rights has ignited the passions and ire of an extreme element determined to alter the course of normal politics forever.
Conflicted with his life-long dedication to the rule of law, Younger must choose between following the law or taking a stand against modern-day tyranny, leading to suspenseful cataclysmic events.
In between the political thrillers, Roberts, who is the CEO of a technology firm he founded in 1997, penned a business book, Unemployable: How to be Successfully Unemployed Your Entire Life, in 2017.
Unemployable won the Texas Authors' Association Business Book of the Year 2017 Award.
Roberts is a serial entrepreneur and is active in politics.
Roberts, who lives outside of Houston in Montgomery, Texas, has been married 34 years and has 4 children and 4 grandchildren.
Listen in as I have a conversation about his book and current day events with an obviously outspoken citizen from the Lone Star State!
My guest in the second half hour will be Timothy Shea.
He has served as a Town Meeting Member, Town GOP Committee Member, and state convention delegate in Massachusetts.
The former host of Radio RedNationRising, he is a political commentator and essayist.
Timothy is a frequent guest, a good friend, and a listener favorite!
Listen in as Timothy and I discuss the visit President Trump and First Lady Melania paid to a chronically ill 8 year old, Ashton Zari. That's the feel-good story that might have you searching for kleenex.

My first guest on the Tami Jackson Show* tonight will be Jonathan Scruggs.
In this role, Scruggs leads the team defending the constitutionally protected freedom of creative professionals to live out their faith in business and professional life without being subjected to government coercion, discrimination, or punishment.
Since joining ADF in 2006, Scruggs has worked on and prevailed in a variety of cases that protect the right of people to freely express their faith in their school, in their business, and in the public square.
In Zamecnik v. Indian Prairie School District No. 20, he secured a key precedent establishing that administrators cannot silence a pro-family message in high schools simply because other people object.
In McGlone v. Bell, Scruggs succeeded in overturning a policy requiring advance notice and disclosure of personal information for speakers on a university campus. Additionally, in Sonnier v. Crain, he successfully argued that it is unconstitutional for universities to charge a security fee to an outside speaker simply because his or her message is considered controversial.
Scruggs earned his J.D. at Harvard Law School in 2006. Before graduating from law school, he completed the Alliance Defending Freedom leadership development program to become a Blackstone Fellow.
A member of the bars of Arizona and Tennessee, he is also admitted to the U.S. Supreme Court and multiple federal district and appellate courts.
Jonathan and I will be talking about the latest harassment of Jack Phillips: Following his stunning 7-2 SCOTUS victory in Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, Masterpiece owner Jack Phillips was hoping to get back into the wedding cake business.
The Colorado Civil Rights Commission, however, had other plans.
Recently Jack was asked to create a cake celebrating a gender transition for a transexual individual, which Jack refused to create - as he did in the original Masterpiece case - on grounds that it conflicted with his religious beliefs.
The Colorado Civil Rights Commission is now planning a second case against Jack in the hopes that another round of harassment will force Jack to comply.
For six years, Jack suffered. He faced threats and government punishment simply because he runs his business according to his faith. Now this latest round of harassment by the Commission flies directly in the face of Jack's SCOTUS victory and seeks to take him down for following his faith.
My guest in the second half hour will be Missy Boyd.
Upon her arrival, her parents were told she would not live through the night and, if she did, she would be mentally and physically challenged and dependent on others her entire life. They were told she would never walk, talk or feed herself. She would only sit in her wheelchair and be dependent on them for her every need. Her parents were given the option to withhold feeding and let her die. This option was deemed unacceptable and Misty was medically treated at a different local hospital.
Fast forward 34 years…Misty is happy and healthy. There have been obstacles along the way but she walks, talks and is fully independent, with no significant mental challenges. She is married to a supportive husband, and is an incurable lover of Jesus and hedgehogs.
Misty is a Christian, and her relationship with God is very important to her. She can be found in her home church every Sunday, but only the afternoon service! She likes to sleep in past both early services.
She and her husband, James, have been married for 10 years and together for 19. They own a hedgehog named Meatball who is 6 months old. They have no children.
She enjoys both dancing around her apartment, and singing at the top of her lungs in the car, even if she's not very good at either one!
Her favorite food group is Tex-Mex. She can be won over by a good taco 9 out of 10 times!
Listen in as Misty and I talk about her birth and the amazing life she's led in spite of the pessimistic prognosis of the supposedly "learned" physicians and specialists. Life is precious and sacred and Misty is a living testimony to that very fact!

Ben Shapiro, David French, and Jonah Goldberg think the biggest threat to conservatives comes from Trump Trumpists. Their paranoia blinds them to fact that Big Tech is already eviscerating the right by methodically deplatforming all of its prominent media voices.Kevin Estela / ADF Matt Sharp - The Tami Jackson Show
August 14, 2018 06:58 PM PDT
My first guest on the Tami Jackson Show* tonight will be Kevin Estela.

My guest in the second half hour will be Matt Sharp.
Since joining ADF in 2010, Sharp has worked on important cases advancing religious freedom: for students desiring to share their faith; and, defending their privacy against efforts to require schools to open their locker rooms and restrooms to the opposite sex. He has won cases upholding the rights of students to form religious clubs, invite classmates to church, and even perform a religious song at a school talent show.
Sharp has also testified before several state legislatures on religious liberty and physical privacy issues. On behalf of nearly 9,000 students, parents, and community members, he authored an amicus brief in Gloucester County School Board v. G.G. asking the U.S. Supreme Court to uphold their right to privacy against government intrusion.
Sharp earned his J.D. in 2006 from the Vanderbilt University School of Law. A member of the bar in Georgia and Tennessee, he is also admitted to practice in several federal courts.
Matt and I will talk about the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) taking another hit, as Attorney General Jeff Session has ordered a DOJ review to ensure the department no longer partners with the SPLC!
Listen as we discuss the SPLC "Hate List" (ADF made the list) -- that infamous list used by Lefties everywhere to tag any and all conservative organizations as "hate groups."

Conservative leaders are once again using a stick to control their lessers. Guy Benson says you can't be conservative if you believe demographics are destiny. He's wrong and it's time to ditch conservatives who think this way.Pundit Jeff Dunetz - The Tami Jackson Show
August 07, 2018 07:08 PM PDT
My guest on the Tami Jackson Show* tonight will be Jeff Dunetz.

August 07, 2018 03:08 PM PDT
Why is right wing new media falling all over itself to say it doesn't like Alex Jones? Jones has pushed the envelope on the left wing social media monopoly to a point where it finally may be broken. Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter have attacked low hanging fruit dismissed by the cool kids as fringe or alt-right. Even political candidates have had content removed. Now, after the Jones takedown, only the ineffectual sissies believe they won't be next.Alan & Phil Robertson / Columnist Joy Overbeck - Tami Jackson Show
July 31, 2018 08:00 PM PDT
My first guests on the Tami Jackson Show* tonight will be Alan Robertson and his dad, Phil Robertson.
Phil Robertson and Al Robertson
Back in the day, he and Phil would travel around Louisiana and Arkansas selling duck calls to stores right out of their truck. The sales pitch back then was the same as it is today: “These calls are the best ’cause they sound just like a duck!”
Alan returned to the family business after serving in full-time ministry for more than 25 years. Alan plays a vital role in the family’s commitment to spreading the gospel of Christ through their love of hunting and the great outdoors.
Al recently started a production company called Restoration Productions with his cousin Zach Dasher, and produce Phil's show, In The Woods with Phil on CRTV.
The only Robertson without a beard, he calls himself a “Jacob” in a family of “Esaus.”
Al and his wife, Lisa, are parents of two grown daughters who are married to bearded men.
Born and raised in Vivian, Louisiana, Phil Robertson came from a large family with 7 children and little money. Because of the location of his family home in a rural setting near Shreveport, and the aforementioned scarcity of money, hunting became an important part of his formative years.
As a high-school athlete, Phil earned All-State rankings in football, baseball, and track, which afforded him the opportunity to attend Louisiana Tech University on a football scholarship. There, Phil played first-string quarterback – ahead of Terry Bradshaw, who later went on to lead the Pittsburgh Steelers team to 4 Super Bowl championships. Phil said, "Terry went for the bucks, and I chased after the ducks."
After receiving his Bachelor's degree in Physical Education and a Master's in Education, Phil spent several years teaching in Louisiana schools. Acclaimed as an excellent teacher by his students, Phil came to the conclusion that his time and talents would be better spent in the woods.
Phil and his family, which by this time included his wife, Kay, and four boys – Alan, Jase, Willie, and Jeptha – began a quest to turn his passion for hunting and fishing into a livelihood.
Phil has authored two books, Happy, Happy Happy about his life story, and Unphiltered about his philosophy on life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and is working on a third.
As previously mentioned, Phil has a new internet television on CRTV called "In The Woods With Phil." The show features Phil’s wisdom and his practical insights on how our country and culture can improve.
Go to CRTV.com\ducks to subscribe to Phil's show, "In The Woods with Phil."
My guest in the second half hour will be Joy Overbeck.
She’s also written two humor books published by Pocket Books, Simon&Schuster. She describes herself as a radical conservative God fan who has delighted for the last several years in annoying libs with columns at Townhall.com, The Washington Times, The Daily Caller, American Thinker, and elsewhere.
Other favorite forms of recreation include riding her Rocky Mountain mare, Gypsy, out into the wide open spaces of beautiful Colorado, skiing Vail, and enjoying her friends and her golden tabby, Tigger.
Joy and I will be covering her recent column, "How the #WalkAway Campaign is Drowning the Blue Wave Democrats"
As Joy writes in the article:
The #WalkAway campaign is now over 100,000 strong in just a few weeks. These are former liberals who have discovered, as its founder Brandon Straka says in his video (below), “the Democratic Party’s greatest and most insidious lie:” That without them, you are nothing.
As Straka puts it, “They will insist that you are a victim doomed to exist within a system that is rigged against you…that you are a victim of systematic oppression…that you are a victim of your circumstances, and no amount of hard work or motivational action will ever allow you to overcome your victimhood or the privilege of those around you.”
Joy's article has garnered over 13K shares on Facebook for good reason: people are amazed to hear the stories of liberals who have seen the light and fled from the rabid intolerance and vitriol of The Left!
Don't miss a minute as Joy and I discuss this #WalkAway movement that's sweeping the country!

My first guest on The Tami Jackson Show* tonight will be Bart Marcois.
Additionally, Marcois served as a career foreign service officer with the State Department.
Bart is a Senior Contributor at OpsLens.com "Experience Driven Commentary," where you can find a number of terrific OpEd pieces penned by someone with actual experience in policy matters.
Listen in as Bart and I discuss Trump and Putin, the Judge Brett Kavanaugh SCOTUS confirmation procedures, and more!
My second guest will be Travis Smith
In his Daily Caller column about the same topic and book Smith writes:
Superhero stories are not just the amusements of a misspent youth; they have serious moral significance and can teach us important lessons about the happiness of individuals and the well-being of a free society that depends on people behaving responsibly. Could superheroes even serve as role models that can save American freedom?
Too many forces in our liberal democratic society today already inculcate irresponsibility, promote narrow self-interest and hedonistic indulgence, and foster sentimentality and wishful thinking. Our society too often sanctions timid passivity and outsized outrage—all in the name of compassion or justice. We either discourage or downplay everyday bravery, moderation, restraint, resilience, generosity, gratitude, decency, sociability, sacrifice, and the exercise of good judgment — all of the efforts that generate and constitute responsibility toward oneself and one’s community.
Freedom well used ought to spark some virtue, some relative excellence of character. So if superheroes can encourage some everyday ethical behavior—inspiring responsibility and integrity, living with resolve rather than resignation—while exposing some of our worst tendencies and misguided aspirations, then it is worth thinking about them critically. Because free societies require individual and interpersonal responsibility, and human beings need good role models.
Listen in as Travis and I talk superheroes and ethics.
And of course life as a professor in the year 2018?
What's it like being a prof in Canada these days?

My first guest on The Tami Jackson Show* tonight will be Eric Brakey.
He was Maine State Director for the 2012 Ron Paul presidential campaign winning a majority of Maine delegate seats to the 2012 Republican National Convention.
After working for Ron Paul’s 2012 presidential campaign, Brakey led Defense of Liberty PAC, a libertarian political action committee in Maine.
Now Eric Brakey is running for U.S. Senate -- how terrific would it be to have a great conservative representing state of Maine after the years of Susan "Republican in Name Only" Collins?
Check out Eric's intro video from the Maine Republican Convention:
Listen in as Eric and I discuss the dynamics of politics in Maine -- what makes that states so very independent and different, as well as his position on the issues that conservatives care about!
My second guest will be Catherine Glenn Foster
Catherine got pregnant at 19-years-old. She felt alone and out of options so she went online and found the cheapest abortion center that would take her. At the last minute, she changed her mind, but the center forced her to have an abortion anyway.
Under Foster’s leadership, AUL pursues and refines a mother-child strategy that looks at the interests and vulnerabilities of both, protecting them from abortion industry abuses. She is admitted to the bar in Virginia and Washington D.C., as well as the U.S. Supreme Court; the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the 1st, 5th, 8th, and 9th Circuits; and the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.
She is a member of the American Bar Association and the Federal Bar Association, an inaugural member of the Federalist Society Founders Club, Senior Fellow in Legal Policy at the Charlotte Lozier Institute, and a fellow with the James Wilson Institute on Natural Rights and the American Founding.
Once confirmed by the Senate, President Trump's Supreme Court Nominee, Judge Kavanaugh, won't have to wait long to make a potentially historic decision on abortion rights.
The next SCOTUS term begins in October and the pending cases in federal courts, some just one level below the Supreme Court, fall into two categories that legal experts agree could turn into a broader debate about Roe.
Don't miss this exciting conversation about the potential effect of a SCOTUS Justice Kavanaugh on the culture of life in America!
