Thanks again to Fox News Channel and Tucker Carlson for having me on the show, Friday, March 30, 2018!
We discussed Hillary Clinton’s interview at Rutgers University where there was an intimation about fascism and dictatorship in the USA. Plus, Tucker and I discussed and debated the responsible parties and issues around speech and fascism.
Here is a little highlight from the segment:
And here is the full segment for your viewing pleasure:
I joined Fox News Channel’sIngraham Angle hosted by Laura Ingraham on Tuesday, February 20, 2018. The topic was the San Francisco homeless crisis which has over 7,000 people on the streets at any time leaving trash, needles, and feces on the streets.
BART Police Citizen Review Board commissioner Ken Loo represented another viewpoint from mine.
I argued that there clearly is a problem, the city made great progress addressing homeless veterans under Mayor Ed Lee, and that the feds are part of the problem and should be helping out.
Take a look at our segment debating the San Francisco homeless crisis:
Republicans have a new idea on this topic, with Senator Marco Rubio and Ivanka Trump leading the way. We discussed and sharply debated over borrowing against Social Security which is paid back with delayed retirement 1:1. Further, I suggest shoring up Social Security as I wrote about HERE.
Rubio has barely started drafting a paid leave bill, much less a broader legislative strategy. But he envisions an idea that has recently gained traction in conservative circles: allowing people to draw Social Security benefits when they want to take time off for a new baby or other family-related matters, and then delay their checks when they hit retirement age.
For instance, a person who would begin receiving full benefits when he or she turns 67 years old but wants to take six weeks of paid leave wouldn’t draw Social Security benefits until six weeks after his or her 67th birthday.
“That’s a new idea for Republicans who still identify it as something that comes out of the left,” Rubio said of paid family leave. “Forcing companies to provide it is perhaps an idea that finds its genesis on the left, but the notion that pregnancy should not be a bankruptcy-eliciting event is one that I think all Americans should be supportive of.”
As we ran out of time, I finished the interview with a polite thank you. Carrie finished the interview with “what a joke.”
Is it a joke to worry about disguising paid maternity leave as another punishment of women on the lower end of the economic scale?
On Tuesday, February 6, 2018, I joined Carol Costello on CNN’s HLNin studio. The stock markets are extremely volatile with a record point loss yesterday. Sean Hannity blames President Obama while President Trump has taken credit for every high. Should Trump take credit for the correction, too?
Here is a little clip.”…thanks to Pres. Obama who took us out of the Great Recession and put the policies in place that brought unemployment down. That trendline started in 2010 and sure didn’t start with this president.”
“What comes up must go down too. And so there will be another recession and this is going to happen potentially under Pres. Trump’s watch.”
CNN InternationalNewsroom LA invited me on Monday night, January 15, 2018. We discussed President Trump’s allegedly made deeply offensive remarks outrageous statements during a meeting with Congressional leaders where he a about the African continent and Haiti. Host IshaSesay is from Sierra Leone (in Africa) and had some choice words for my fellow panelist, California Republican National Committeeman Shawn Steel.
I also, as an individual American, apologized to Africa for the offensive remarks.
I joined Carol Costello on CNN’s HLNon January 8th for the first time. I went up against conservative commentator Ben Ferguson to discuss Oprah’s potential presidential run and all the 25th Amendment removal of President Trump talk floating around.
Take a look at this short clip from the appearance and let me know what you think.
