I joined Fox News Channel’s Happening Now with Jenna Lee on Wednesday, January 18, 2017. Fellow panelist Ian Prior and I debated the HHS Secretary hearings regarding Rep. Dr. Tom Price and how the Republicans and he approach women’s health, like endometriosis.

“I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there.” “Grab them by the p***y, you can do anything.”
Like when I was a child playing with a prism and the light changed, the world shifted. The Access Hollywood tape of then 59-year-old Donald J. Trump was a painful beam which seared my mind. Billy Bush got fired for giggling and asking questions, Donald J. Trump is going to be the 45th President of the United States.
The day after the inauguration, in the winter-weak sunlight on Saturday, hundreds of thousands of people will converge on our nation’s capital to protest. And I’ll join my wife and two children in attendance at the Women’s March in Washington, D.C.
Why this protest, why now? My wife, my daughter, my sisters, my nieces, my mom, my step-mom, my cousins, and every other woman in this great country have made it my priority to stop sexual abuse.
As a talk radio host and participant in the media, I am blessed with the opportunity to interact with an extraordinarily wide range of people from all walks of life. Women came out of the woodwork, sharing stories of their experiences of being sexually abused, sexually assaulted, or raped.
It isn’t just now that I’m hearing and reading about these abusive men. Throughout my life I’ve been hearing about date rape, attempted rape by a cab driver, a neighbor exposing himself and making lewd comments, groped on a crowded bus, grabbed while trying to go into a bathroom, and on and on.
No more sexual abuse, this must end. Women’s rights are human rights and not one person should suffer this abuse again.
We must fight back against this evil, exemplified by electing a man who personifies the opposite of what I teach my children. Bullying is wrong, saying horrible things about people is wrong, and sexually abusing women and girls is not only wrong, but must be stopped. This march to me is about fighting back and stopping this abuse.
While women have made many gains in our society since my great-grandmother Bearman was a suffragist in the early 20th century, there are limits to what they can do on their own. Because men are the overwhelming sexual offenders, men need to step up and help stop this epidemic. We need the good men, real men, to stand up and say enough. Males will stop grabbing, groping, and assaulting our sisters, our daughters, our mothers. Starting today we will stand up in public, stop you, and shame you like Moise Morancy did in New York. Starting today, we will stop the “locker room talk” espoused by Donald J. Trump and tell those who use those words that we will no longer tolerate it. Starting today, we say all the girls and women in our country shall be free from this scourge and can be safe from these attacks.
This is why I am going to The Women’s March On Washington. To show my children, one a boy and the other a girl, that my wife and I believe in a better world for them and I am willing to act beyond words on the radio to help make it so. To stand in solidarity with so many others that the time has come to end where males in our society feel free to abuse girls and women.
I ask for you to join me in condemning sexual abuse and to stop making excuses for those who commit these offenses. I ask for you to stand up every time you see a male sexually abusing another. I ask for you to demand our leaders stop making excuses for offenders, to stop explaining it away.
January 21st, 2017 is the day that we shall come together to work together to make our country a better place at the Women’s March in Washington, D.C. And as a result, maybe when my daughter turns 30, she and her friends won’t share stories of being sexually abused.
During my weekly appearance on Fox Business Network’s Intelligence Report with Trish Regan… I discussed the 58 Democrat Representatives boycotting Donald J. Trump’s inauguration on January 20th. Specifically I addressed Rep. John Lewis.
I was asked to make a sugar cookie and here it is. Delicious, nutritious, gluten free, really low carb which is great for Type 1 and Type 2 diabetics, those on keto diets, and for everyone who is looking to intelligently reduce their sugar intake!
Further, these are the perfect vehicle for my butterscotch icing, another frosting I am working on, or anything else you’d like to top with.
This recipe makes about 32 sugar cookies and takes about a half hour to make.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Then mix all the ingredients in a countertop mixer (like my KitchenAid KSM75WH Classic Plus Series 4.5-Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer, White from Amazon). I use a small spoon to place dollops of the dough on a cookie sheet. Bake for 15-18 minutes until brown on the edges (or as you like) then take out of the oven. Place the cookies on a cooling rack for a few minutes and enjoy these healthy sugar cookies!
I now know how much we all love doughnuts (or donuts). The feedback from my low carb, keto, chocolate doughnuts has been phenomenal. But, I also know many people with chocolate sensitivity or an outright allergy.
I spent a little time experimenting and came up with this great combo: a plain, keto, gluten-free, ulta low-carb donut, plus the least unhealthy butterscotch icing I could find.
See, the problem with butterscotch is that its base is brown sugar. None of the sugar substitutes are good at melting and caramelizing like real sugar. But I found the next best thing over at The Healthy Home Economist.
This recipe makes a dozen donuts and 100 or so servings of butterscotch for those donuts (or other delicious uses).
Place a sheet of wax or parchment paper under a cooling rack. Turn the molds over to place the donuts on the cooling rack.
In a small saucepan over medium heat, throw in the butter. Once the butter is melted, stir in the sugar and whisk for a minute or two until well blended. Next, whisk in half of the cream (1/4 cup). Bring to a boil and then turn down the heat to medium-low and cook for 3-4 minutes. Stir often with the whisk and you will notice that the texture will change slightly as the mixture cooks.
Turn off heat and remove the pot from the stove. Stir in the remaining 1/4 cup heavy cream, bourbon vanilla, and salt.
Immediately pour the butterscotch sauce into a small glass jar.
Spoon the butterscotch on the donuts. Eat hot or let them cool and enjoy!
