February 06, 2018 07:10 PM PST
My first guest tonight on The Tami Jackson Show* is Scott Sturgill.
Check him out at ScottSturgillForCongress.com.
Scott Sturgill serves as the CEO of Durable Safety Products where he has built a very successful safety company that has employees locally and throughout the USA.
Scott recently served as the Chairman of the Board for the Greater Sanford Regional Chamber of Commerce. Under his leadership businesses are thriving in the region and new businesses continue to open.
Scott became involved with politics after seeing firsthand how high taxes and red tape impact entrepreneurs. He is very vocal and takes a strong stand against wasteful spending and demands that politicians must adhere to the same rules as everyone else. Scott is focused on removing government barriers to private-sector job creation, economic growth, cutting government spending, improving healthcare and running government with a business mentality.
A 4th Generation Seminole County resident Scott and his wife, Tracy reside in Sanford with their two daughters.
Listen as we get to know Scott and his worldview and stance on the important issues of the day!
In the second 1/2 hour I will be joined by John Horst.
Check him out at JohnHorstForCongress.com.
John Horst is a Cybersecurity Engineer with over 20 years experience helping civilian and military leaders succeed with secure, cutting-edge information technology.
One of four children of a Navy family, John was raised in San Diego, graduating from Saint Augustine High School in 1985. He and his wife Pauline married in 1995 and bought their Mira Mesa home in 1997. 20 years later, they have raised two boys in Mira Mesa and will be sending them off to college soon.
Over those 20 years, John has given thousands of hours to various volunteer groups in his community. John was elected to two terms on the Mira Mesa Community Planning Group, serving as Secretary for five years and Chairman for three. John has a proven track record of practical solutions and successful community advocacy at all levels of government.
His unique background gives John an unmatched grasp of how local problems span multiple levels of government. Practical solutions require leadership which is willing to work across both the political aisle as well as across various levels of government.
John is committed to a principle articulated by President Ronald Reagan – it is remarkable how much can be accomplished when you do not care who gets the credit.
Like in the first 1/2 hour, John and I will run down his stance on a laundry list of issues!

My second guest tonight will be Hannah Strege.
As written at the Whittier Daily News:
In many ways, Hannah Strege is the typical teenager on the verge of adulthood.
The 19-year-old is a college freshman who likes to listen to music, go shopping with her mom and out to the movies — preferably romantic comedies — with friends at the spur of the moment.
But her entry into this world was anything but typical.
Twenty years ago, she was the first frozen embryo to be adopted.
Hannah's parents, John and Marlene Strege, had been through a long process of trying to have a child. They discussed treatment options with their physician.
Since the advent of Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) fertility clinics have been assisting patients to achieve pregnancy through a treatment known as in vitro fertilization (IVF). Often, more embryos are created for the IVF treatment than are eventually used by the patient, thus creating a surplus of cryo-preserved embryos. Marlene asked her clinic if they had available embryos in frozen storage.
Hannah with Dr. James Dobson
Simply being assigned anonymously donated embryos from a fertility clinic was not the procedure John and Marlene wanted to follow.
They worked with Mr. Stoddart to develop the first embryo adoption program in the world, now known as the Snowflakes® Embryo Adoption Program. The Streges and Stoddart decided to name the program Snowflakes because like a delicate snowflake each embryo is frozen, unique and a gift from God. The program was officially established in 1997 as a division of Nightlight® Christian Adoptions.
Hannah was born in December 31, 1998, and this year is a freshman at BIOLA University.
Listen as Hannah and I discuss her amazing story, the current situation with stem cell research and the larger battle for a culture of life in America!

January 23, 2018 07:03 PM PST
My first guest tonight on The Tami Jackson Show* is Sam Carpenter.
Sam is a multi-business owner from Bend, Oregon, with a specialty in the hands-on repair of struggling companies. He also an author, philanthropist and especially, a believer in the sovereignty of America, of Oregon, and of the individual.
In Carpenter's words at the Sam Carpenter for Oregon site:
As a resident of Oregon for over 40 years, I’ve watched mind-boggling change in every aspect of my Central Oregon region and throughout the rest of our beautiful state.
Here’s why I’m running for governor: it’s my view that the people of Oregon should not be asked to endure continued progressive far-left leadership…and due to some unique personal attributes and life-experience, I find myself highly qualified, not just to be governor but to actually DO what is necessary to reverse the downward economic and social trajectory of this great state.
I’m a CEO. I fix and build.
Sam Carpenter and I will have a substantive talk about the tough issues facing Oregon and cover his stand on a host of issues. Listen in and learn how Sam would like to turn the state around and Make Oregon Great Again (#MOGA)!
For the first time in a long, long time, I have some real hope for my beloved native state!
In the second 1/2 hour I will be joined by Elizabeth Johnston.
She and her husband Patrick, who is a medical doctor, author, and movie producer, have been pro-life ministry leaders for many years and home educate their 10 beautiful children.
The growing threat to America’s children and the vicious attack on religious liberty is what dynamited Elizabeth out of her comfort zone to inspire a nation of belittled conservatives and Christians to “come out of their closets” and boldly take their country back.
Elizabeth daily triggers the left by confronting the lies of abortion, feminism, Islam, and the homosexual agenda with wit and snark like only she can, and she regularly posts viral commentary videos (find them at the Activist Mommy site) which have netted over 70 million views.
Elizabeth has been featured on many major media outlets, such as Fox & Friends, The New York Times, The Blaze and Christian Broadcasting Network, as she has become a thought leader on topics of importance to families.
The pulse behind all her activism and cultural commentary is her love for her family and her Savior, Jesus Christ.
Elizabeth and I will discuss a number of recent societal events -- the Women's March, the #MeToo movement, feminism, the assault on children, homeschooling, and much much more! You will love her -- she, too, has SPUNK!

January 16, 2018 07:42 PM PST
Another Tuesday night and I have two heavy hitters on the Tami Jackson Show*!
Botkin is the author of Ride the Thunder: A Vietnam War Story of Honor and Triumph, a magnificent work of military history centered on the Easter offensive and the American and Vietnamese Marines.
The tome highlights many brave men, including: Col G.H. “Gerry” Turley, Col John Ripley (“Skipper”), and Maj Le Ba Binh, who fought in a war demonized and undermined by the Mainstream Media and The Left.
Ride the Thunder tells the story of American Marines, Covan, and the TQLC, a story not well-known by so many Americans, and made the USMC Commandant's Reading List (required reading for Marines).
The 603 page book offers a sweeping view of the conditions throughout Indo-China prior to the Vietnam war, including the war between the Viet Minh and French forces, the Geneva Agreements begun in May 1954, the apportionment of the north as the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (Communist), the south as the Republic of Vietnam (non-communist).
When people such as Jane Fonda and Donald Sutherland spoke of Vietnam and the war, they never mentioned the bloody Communist purges between 1953 and 1956.
Botkin's book recounts the history through the eyes of the American and South Vietnamese Marines and their wives, personalizing a much misunderstood conflict.
Richard writes on page 17:
No accurate details exist for the number of people disposed of during this period, nor was there a record of those eliminated during their attempts to leave or intimidated from moving to the south.
As there was little in the way of press coverage, news of massive purges were only gathered by word of mouth when it reached the south and given scant attention in Western media.
Ride the Thunder is the result of 5 years of writing and 4 trips to Vietnam, and was made into a motion picture in March of 2015. You can follow the movie progress at RideTheThunderMovie.com.
Rich wrote an article in October 2017 titled, Will Ken Burns' Twisted Version of Vietnam War Endure?
The article begins:
“No event in American history is more misunderstood than the Vietnam War. It was misreported then, and it is misremembered now.” Richard Nixon’s 1994 post-war observation remains as prescient as ever. With the release of the Ken Burns/Lynne Novick epic 10-part PBS documentary on the war last month, it is safe to say that the misreporting and misremembering have only been compounded and exacerbated.
Sadly, the American taxpayers have funded the Burns/Novick series which only continues The Left's distorted narrative of the Vietnam War.
Click the picture to go to the Amazon video page!
If nothing else, the release of the Burns/Novick work has ignited a firestorm of passionate response from those men who honorably served. And it was their stories, including those of our South Vietnamese allies, that went largely untold in 18 long, tortuous hours.
Ride the Thunder movie is NOW available on Amazon video: the HD digital movie is free to Amazon Prime members (or can be rented or purchased by those who are not Prime members).
In addition, Ride the Thunder movie DVDs can be purchased at Amazon.
Our hope is that perhaps a backlash will occur, that thousands will obtain copies of the Ride the Thunder movie, and that the light of truth will reveal the Burns series to be a terrible misrepresentation of the war and those who honorably served.
In the second 1/2 hour I will be talking to Michael Farris.
Farris was founding president of both the Home School Legal Defense Association (1983) and Patrick Henry College (2000) and continues to serve as chairman of the board of HSLDA and chancellor emeritus of PHC.
He graduated from Western Washington State College, magna cum laude, with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science, followed by a Juris Doctor from Gonzaga University (with honors). At Gonzaga, he was articles editor of the Law Review and winner of the Linden Cup Moot Court Competition. He also earned an LL.M. in Public International Law (with honors) from the University of London.
Farris has specialized in constitutional appellate litigation. In that capacity, he has argued before the U.S. Supreme Court, eight federal circuit courts of appeals, and in the appellate courts of 13 states. He is also the author of numerous amicus briefs before the U.S. Supreme Court.
Farris also has substantial experience in international human rights advocacy. He served for nearly a decade on the board of Christian Solidarity International—a Swiss-based human rights organization. He served as International Vice President of CSI for a number of years and participated in missions to the former Soviet Union and Romania. He has also engaged in private diplomatic missions to China and the Czech Republic.
Farris is nationally known as a pioneering leader of the modern homeschooling movement. His leadership of HSLDA has taken him to nearly every state and a growing number of other nations.
As the founding president of Patrick Henry College, he helped launch a highly regarded Christian educational institution founded on a strong commitment to biblical truth and the classical liberal arts, the twin pillars of education for the founding generations of the United States. At PHC, Farris has taught constitutional law, public international law, and coached the Moot Court team to nine national championships between 2004 and 2016.
Farris is the author of over 15 books, as well as law review and other scholarly articles, and countless pieces for the popular press.
Michael and his wife, Vickie, have 10 children and 20 grandchildren.
Listen in as Michael and I discuss the victory of the Trinity Lutheran Church v. Comer SCOTUS ruling: the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 7-2 in favor of ADF's client Trinity. Mike and I will talk about the repercussions of the ruling on, Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, and about President Trump’s proclamation recognizing Jan. 16 as Religious Freedom Day. Farris commented:
Americans have always treasured their ability to freely live out their faith. The president’s proclamation of Religious Freedom Day today comes at a time when that freedom has perhaps never been more threatened, so we join him in encouraging all Americans to consider the importance of religious freedom—and to celebrate it.
As the president’s proclamation says, ‘No American—whether a nun, nurse, baker, or business owner—should be forced to choose between the tenets of faith or adherence to the law.’ That’s precisely why we recently argued on behalf of cake artist Jack Phillips before the U.S. Supreme Court. Americans should be able to peacefully live and work according to their beliefs without fear of punishment by the government.

In the first 1/2 hour of The Tami Jackson Show* I will be talking to Tim Constantine.
Tim Constantine hit the airwaves at age 13. At the time, his deep voice didn't match his skinny frame and sneakers, but through the magic of radio, it really didn't matter. As a young man he worked in Rock and Top 40 Formats. Later, while serving in elected office, Constantine returned to broadcasting, this time in the Talk Format.
Today Constantine broadcasts from Washington DC to listeners all across the United States. He combines his background in TV and Radio, his experience in public office, his controversial fall from grace and his hard-nose business approach with his understated sense of humor for one of the most entertaining radio programs anywhere.
Tim and I will be talking about the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS):
Congress created the renewable fuel standard (RFS) program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and expand the nation’s renewable fuels sector while reducing reliance on imported oil.
This program was authorized under the Energy Policy Act of 2005 and expanded under the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007.
Some important points we'll cover:
Thanks to the swamp, Americans pay more and more for food each year. This is because of a government mandate called the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) written by and lobbied for by special interest groups. RFS mandates that 10% of gasoline be mixed with ethanol, a product of corn.
My guest for the second 1/2 hour will be Gary Byrne
Gary has received letters of commendation and praise from Bill Clinton's Chief of State, the Secret Service, and the acting director of the Federal Air Marshal Service.
Gary Byrne authored the Hachette Book Group bombshell, Crisis of Character: A White House Secret Service Officer Discloses His Firsthand Experience with Hillary, Bill, and How They Operate.
Byrne has a brand new, revealing book out, Secrets of the Secret Service: The History and Uncertain Future of the U.S. Secret Service, that enumerates the failings within the Secret Service itself: lack of leadership, lack of financial budgeting and accountability, and most importantly, critical failures in protecting presidents and other protectees.
Gary and I will talk a bit about his tenure in the Clinton White House, which gives Gary a unique viewpoint on the challenges facing Secret Service detail with President Trump.
We'll also talk about any inside baseball on Hillary's opinion and treatment of the Secret Service. But most importantly, we will talk about his new book and what must be done to make the U.S. Secret Service great again!
Don't miss a minute of my conversation with Gary Byrne!

The former host of Radio RedNationRising, he is a political commentator and essayist.
Timothy and I will be talking about 2017 -- what happened, the surprises (think President Trump), the issues.
What were Trump's accomplishments?
How is America doing on the foreign stage, at the United Nations?
Are we advancing a culture of life?
How is the economy doing? What about energy independence?
We'll discuss these two articles, "WND’s Big List of 170 Trump Accomplishments in 340 Days," and "Trump’s Tremendous Year: Disrespecting All Who Plan to Harm America."
This will, of course be a fun show as Timothy and I rehash what has been one of the most interesting years in my lifetime.
And we'll throw out our predictions for 2018...don't miss a minute of this show!

In the first 1/2 hour of The Tami Jackson Show* I will be talking to Yoni Tidi.
Tidi is an American citizen, as well as an Israeli citizen, and never shies away from straight talk.
Yoni's latest venture is a top-tier cybersecurity venture, CyberGhostGlobal.
Cyber Ghost is a leading cyber security company with a different approach than mainstream cyber security companies, who use only conventional cyber security approaches. CGG uses a wider set of tools that, when combined with their specific knowledge and experience, ensures data security.
Cyber Ghost is born out of an existing Israeli company that has been in private practice for 16 years. All Cyber Ghost cyber personnel are Mossad cyber experts. (they can say Mossad since their people are still doing reserve duty with the Mossad.)
Cyber Ghost Global is registered as an exporter with the Israeli Ministry of Defense and operate under its regulation.
As usual, this will be a fun conversation as Yoni and I discuss the current situation in the Middle East, Trump's proclamation of Jerusalem as the official capital of Israel, other hot political topics and of course, Cyber Ghost Global!
In the second half hour I will be joined by Tyler Merritt.
Merritt is a former Apache Helicopter Pilot turned Special Operations Air Mission Commander in the 160th SOAR.
Following his graduation from the United States Military Academy at West Point, U.S. Army Captain Merritt was deployed multiple times to Iraq, Afghanistan, the Arabian Peninsula, and South America.

In the military, a Nine Line is a medevac request for a soldier that is injured on the battlefield.
To soldiers, a Nine Line symbolizes patriotism, hope, and trust in one’s countrymen.
As a life-style brand, Nine Line Apparel aims to reinvigorate the sense of patriotism and national pride that is disappearing daily from our society. Where politics and dissent divide our country, we hope to inspire unity and brotherhood among all Americans as patriots under our common flag.
At its core, Nine Line is a give-back organization, forever striving to be their brother’s keeper, and encouraging others to do the same. We support a multitude of initiatives beyond raising awareness, and financially back organizations that help those in need.
From first responders to military charities to disaster relief initiatives, Nine Line is committed to ongoing support of charitable initiatives. No matter the circumstances, we've got your six.
To learn more about our Foundation, please visit Nine Line Foundation.
Tyler and I will be discussing patriotism in America and those NFL players who kneel during the playing of our National Anthem. In keeping with the theme of all their apparel -- supporting those who have served and are serving -- Nine Line created an "I Stand" line of shirts.

December 05, 2017 08:01 PM PST
My first guest on the Tami Jackson Show* tonight will be Arthur Herman.
Dr. Arthur Herman (Ph.D. Johns Hopkins, 1985) is the author of the New York Times bestseller How the Scots Invented the Modern World, which has sold a half million copies worldwide, and Gandhi and Churchill, which was a 2009 finalist for the Pulitzer Prize.
His six other books include To Rule the Waves: How the British Navy Shaped the Modern World, which was nominated for the UK’s prestigious Mountbatten Maritime Prize; Freedom’s Forge, named by the Economist as one of the Best Books of 2012; and Douglas MacArthur: American Warrior.
He is currently a Senior Fellow at the Hudson Institute in Washington, DC.
Educated at the University of Minnesota and Johns Hopkins University in history and classics, Dr. Herman is a frequent contributor on defense, energy, and technology issues to Commentary magazine, the New York Post, National Review, and the Wall Street Journal. He was also the first non-British citizen to be named to the Scottish Arts Council from 2007 to 2009.
Listen as Arthur Herman and I talk about his brand new book, 1917: Lenin, Wilson, and the Birth of the New World Disorder.
Covered in 1917:
President Woodrow Wilson’s idea to create a world “safe for democracy” ultimately failed as the world’s most powerful dictatorship rose from the ashes of World War I - the Soviet Union. While his idealism was well-intentioned it established the United States as the “world’s policeman,” paving the way for later U.S. mishaps in Vietnam and Iraq.
Arthur Herman’s parallel biography of Lenin and Wilson will make the reader stop and think — about the great man theory of history and the cataclysmic events of 1917. Analyzing their legacies, Herman issues a clarion call for us to cast a wary eye on ideologues who want to remake the world, in 2017 as in 1917.
This will be fascinating as Arthur and I talk history and philosophy -- Wilson was a prominent Progressive (Socialist) and it's critical that Americans to understand the roots of Socialism, Marxism, and Progressivism, and the role they played in WWI.
In the second 1/2 hour my guest will be Stephen Strang.
Stephen E. Strang is an award-winning journalist and successful businessman who began his career as a newspaper reporter at the Orlando Sentinel before founding a Christian publishing house and media company.
Strang has interviewed and written about nearly every Christian leader in the country over the past four decades.
He is author of the book, God and Donald Trump. He joined other Christian leaders who campaigned for Trump's election.
As written in the front cover:
Donald Trump is an enigma, a brash self-promoter, casino owner, and a man of the world. Yet he is also a devoted husband and father who has surrounded himself with men and women of faith and has made religion a key component of his image.
God and Donald Trump is a powerful first-person account of one of the most contentious elections in American history, with exclusive interviews and insightful commentary from the men and women who were there.
Most evangelical Christians did not support Donald Trump when he announced he was running for President in 2015. Why should they have? He had made a fortune in gambling.
He was thrice married, and he was known to use some pretty salty language at times—hardly the model politician the religious right could enthusiastically support.
As it turned out, however, most evangelicals did get behind him in the 2016 election, giving Trump 82 percent of the evangelical vote—reportedly the highest percentage ever. Since then his support from the Christian community has remained steady.
Stephen Strang is CEO of Charisma Media and founder of Charisma magazine. Charisma Media also publishes Ministry Today, the Spanish magazine Vida Cristiana and Christian Retailing.
Steve and I will discuss Donald Trump and HOW he won 82% of the evangelical vote and what role faith now plays in his administration.

Kurt is married to Irina,has two children, and lives in the South Bay Los Angeles area.
Kurt and I will have some fun discussing two of his recent columns at Townhall.com, "Let’s All Savor The Democrats’ Pervgate Pain" and Dating Tips For Prominent Democrats."
You haven't lived until you've heard Kurt expound on all things liberal -- he has the knowledge, the humor, and the spine one would expect from an Army Colonel, to speak up and say the things that too many mealy-mouthed pundits won't.
Prepare to laugh and feel good about being a conservative.
And remember to use the hashtag #Caring.
In the second 1/2 hour my guest will be Robert Alt.
Robert Alt is the President and Chief Executive Officer of The Buckeye Institute, where he also serves on the Board of Trustees.
Alt’s leadership has been the catalyst for The Buckeye Institute’s exponential growth since he took the organization’s helm in 2012.

Following law school, he clerked for Judge Alice Batchelder on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. Alt graduated with his B.A. in political science and philosophy magna cum laude from Azusa Pacific University where he won the Outstanding Senior Award in Political Science.
Robert and I will discuss his informative article, It's Time For Public Sector Workers To Be Given A Voice And Choice.
As written in the article:
Every morning, hardworking men and women in every state drink their coffee and diligently go to work on our behalf—in our neighborhoods as public school teachers, home care workers, engineers, and in agencies protecting the environment. Unfortunately, while these civic-minded professionals go to work for us, the labor unions that they must join in order to teach our children or serve our communities do not always work for them.
Once a public-sector union is certified, it remains the workers’ representative—potentially forever. In Ohio, for example, the Columbus Education Association has represented Columbus public school teachers since 1968—back when the Beatles were still together and before many of today’s teachers were even born.
