FNC Shannon Bream Campus Speech

Fox News @ Night invited me back to join Shannon Bream on Friday, August 17, 2018. My fellow panelist was Nicki Neily, President of a group called Free Speech.

Our topic was the need for free speech and debate on college campuses today. There is a new movement to get people with opposing views together and work to open communication.

I argue, again, for insensitivity training so feelings aren’t hurt so easily. Plus the fact this really isn’t that different from 20 years ago.

I also pointed out that it’s fun for the right to pick on college students regarding the First Amendment, yet ~40% of Republicans (it’s actually 43%) want the President to have the power to shut down media they don’t like.

And, I very intentionally brought up the need for another James Baldwin vs. William F. Buckley, Jr. debate at Cambridge in 1965 where an eloquent man of color decimated WFB in front of a white crowd, on the topic of racism.

FNC Tucker Carlson Mark Steyn John Brennan Security

Tucker Carlson brought me back on his Fox News Channel show Thursday, August 16, 2018.

Mark Steyn and then Tucker took the position that former CiA director John Brennan rightfully had his security clearance revoked by President Trump.

I countered that there are two arguments and a potential legal argument against this revocation based on Brennan’s anti-Trump speech on another cable news outlet.

  • Attacks on the Free Press – see the over 350 newspapers writing about it yesterday.
  • Trump attempting to silence critics
  • There is a good reason for top officials to keep their clearance so new top officials can have continuity in their ability to talk about on-going operations.
  • After my appearance, more than 70 former intelligence officials signed a letter making a nearly identical argument as I did with Tucker.
  • My reference to administrative law is based on a number of factors related to the state creating a property right of a license (for example liquor) and requiring complete administrative due process before revocation.

None of this excuses a closer look at why over 4 million people have security clearances, some of which may have no reason to still have one.

HLN Carol Costello Press Enemy Of The People

HLN TV Across America with Carol Costello invited me back on Thursday, August 16, 2018.

My fellow panelist, CNN Contributor John Phillips, and I argued over the president calling the press the enemy of the people and the 350+ newspapers calling him out on it today.

From the Fort Worth Star-Telegram:

But President Donald Trump has veered into unfamiliar and perilous territory with his unceasing all-out assault on the free press and the First Amendment. Of course, the irony of Trump’s attacks on the “SICK!” and “very dishonest people” in “the fake media” he accuses of purveying, yes, “fake news” is that he himself is a product of the New York tabloids. He’s as savvy about manipulating his coverage as he is adept in undermining it.

But today the consequences of the president’s perpetual battle against journalists extend far beyond the Manhattan gossip pages. And the animus you see directed at CNN’s Jim Acostaisn’t just reserved for the White House press corps. Everywhere in the country, any matter that an official doesn’t want to talk about or that a reader doesn’t want to hear about is “fake news” now.

In our business, we know how much words matter. We know, too, that Trump’s references to us as the “enemy of the American People” are no less dangerous because they happen to be strategic. That is what Nazis called Jews. It’s how Joseph Stalin’s critics were marked for execution.

Fox News at Night Ed Henry Omarosa Trump Racist

Fox News Channel‘s Fox News at Night had me back on Friday, August 11, 2018. Ed Henry was in for Shannon Bream.

Omarosa‘s new tell-all book “Unhinged,” is coming out and the accusations are shocking (like a $15k/month payoff to NOT publish, Trump dropping the N-word, etc.). However, I argue the book adds nothing to what we already know about the long line of Trump’s horrific history toward minorities.

  • Trump in trouble during the Nixon administration for refusing to rent apartments to black people
  • Trump’s birther conspiracy against President Barack Obama
  • “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” – Donald Trump, presidential announcement speech, June 16, 2015
  • President Trump is racist, 49 percent of voters say, while 47 percent say he is not racist according to the Quinnipiac University National Poll released July 3, 2018.
  • While unemployment has continued to drop from the Great Recession, since the Republican tax cuts for the rich, real wages have fallen 1.8%.

FNC Tucker Carlson Kilmeade Instagram Censorship

Fox News Channel had me back on Tucker Carlson Tonight with guest host Brian Kilmeade on Monday, August 6, 2018.

We discussed Instagram censoring a short clip I posted from Tucker’s show Friday night where we said nothing in the realm of hate speech. We merely discussed Sarah Jeong and the New York Times decision to hire her, not quote her tweets.

FNC Tucker Carlson Sarah Jeong Racism

I joined Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox News Channel again August 3, 2018. The topic was the New York Times new editorial board member Sarah Jeong and her controversial tweets that have the right-wing in this country all a-twitter.

Watch the full segment below and keep in mind some points I made.

  • Scientists have studied and shown that we respond to written threats like real, physical threats
  • Sarah Jeong was often responding (I suggested inappropriately) to Twitter trolls who were attacking here – see HERE
  • White Fragility is a real thing that is studied and documented – HERE
  • Koreans are still experiencing racism today, like this racist road rage incident against a Korean-American vet
  • The history of racism in our country includes Asians, and yes we wiped out villages
