Fox News Ingraham Angle California Rent Control

Fox News Channel‘s The Ingraham Angle with Laura Ingraham invited me back on Thursday, September 12, 2019 alongside California RNC Committeewoman Harmeet Dhillon.

Our topic was the California legislature passing a rent control law, capping rent increases at 5% per year.

I argue that it is necessary for families to be able to stay in their rentals. Landlords and developers can handle it and the focus should be on streamlining the red tape in permitting construction and re-construction.

Fox News at Night Trump Wants Federal Crackdown on Homeless with John Yoo

Fox News at Night with guest host Mike Emanuel invited me back on Wednesday, September 11, 2019 along with former Bush Assistant Attorney General and Cal Law Professor John Yoo.

President Trump has ordered White House officials to launch a sweeping effort to address homelessness in California, citing the state’s growing crisis, according to four government officials aware of the effort.

I slipped in the word torture, contextually of course, to the author of the Torture Memos.

Is Trump going to make a difference in the homeless crisis?

WaPo Says Conservatives are Like Confederates and the DNC Reaches Out To Non-Religious

Fox News at Night with host Shannon Bream invited me back on Thursday, August 29, 2019 alongside Pastor Robert Jeffress.

We had two topics last night:

I suggested conservatives stop giving cover to white supremacists. I also suggested Pastor Jeffress and I read from the same bible and should focus on grace, love, and acceptance. Because that’s what Jesus said.

San Francisco Homeless and Trump GOP White Nationalism

Fox News Channel‘s Laura Ingraham invited me back on Tuesday, August 20, 2019 alongside Charlie Kirk to discuss the latest in San Francisco’s homeless crisis.

After a brief discussion of the homeless crisis, Laura surprised me with a double-team arguing that I’m wrong to label the Trump GOP as the party of White Nationalism.

This appearance generated a lot of controversy. See Media Matters for America and BizPac Review.

Shannon Bream Gun Control: Thoughts, Prayers, Action!

Fox News at Night with Shannon Bream invited me back on Thursday, August 8, 2019. I was joined by Pastor Robert Jeffress to discuss the idea that pro-life Jews and Christians should support gun control to save lives.

The discussion went into morals, which I countered by citing Western Europes lower religiosity but far lower mass shootings, and then video games where I cited South Korea far outspending us on violent video games, but again orders of magnitude lower mass shootings.

Psalms 33:

  1. The king is not saved by a great army, nor a warrior rescued by great might.
  2. The horse is a false guarantee for victory; with all its great strength it offers no escape.

And Christians, Matthew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Four Years of Hard Work

Most of you don’t know that the last 4 years I’ve been attending the #1 evening law program in the west at Loyola Law School. Graduation was Sunday, May 19, 2019.

I climbed the steepest ⛰ of my life.

None of this was possible without the love, the support, the guidance of my out-of-this-world wife, my partner, my soulmate, my greatest supporter & inspiration, my love, Amy. Without her I would’ve never thought I could go to law school. I wouldn’t have taken the LSAT. We wouldn’t have moved to Los Angeles. I wouldn’t have started this difficult climb of going to evening law school. I wouldn’t have been able to study and take my exams. Thank you, My Love.

Further, my children were part of all of this. They knew why their papa was gone so many nights and Sundays. Why I needed to miss certain events for class or exams. They were always supportive and even cheered me on. I hope when they are older they’ll notice the example I set with hard work and dedication to improve my life and our lives.

Also, the professors and fellow students in the evening program deserve great credit. Professors had to put up with my enjoyment of the Socratic method, dedicate evenings to share their astounding wealth of knowledge, and commit themselves to our success. My fellow evening students, I’m in awe. They came from diverse backgrounds, worked their butts off, and unlike many law school traditions we all worked together, helped each other, and supported one another through this grueling and rewarding process.

Additionally, I’d also like to thank all of my other friends, family, and everyone else who were incredibly supportive through this process.

Finally, I’d like to thank God (the Universe, or whomever or whatever you might call a higher power) for blessing me with all of the above and the strength to make it through.

On to the bar exam!

THE FLOWERS COULD SURVIVE, BUT WE MIGHT NOT

Wildflowers in oil field – California

We simply CANNOT continue consuming 100 million barrels of oil per day. That is 5.5 Billion gallons PER DAY.

Worse, we continue to alter the chemistry of our atmosphere and waters in ways that will have real consequences.

We are now at > 405 parts per million carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, the highest in over 800,000 years. Over the past 150+ years, the pH of surface ocean waters has fallen by ~0.1. Since the pH scale, like the Richter scale, is logarithmic, that 0.1 drop represents a 30% increase in acidity. As we continue to pump CO² increasing the concentration, the ocean will continue to acidify, dramatically changing life.

It’s time to aggressively move to renewable energy sources like geothermal, hydropower, wind, solar, and yes advanced nuclear.

What 🌎 do we want to leave our children?

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.
