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 Shannon Bream Gun Debate

I joined Shannon Bream on her fantastic new Fox News at Night show last night, February 23, 2018! The topic was gun control post-Parkland, Florida massacre.

My opponent was Vince Coglianese from The Daily Caller and morning show host on WMAL, Washington D.C.

I was a little fired up now that many Republicans appear to be backing off any new laws and blame the FBI and sheriff, don’t you think?

Here is a highlight clip:

Ethan Explains Second Debate Grade

Ethan Explains Second Debate Grade

The second presidential debate went down last night in St. Louis, Missouri. It was town hall style with the moderators Anderson Cooper and Martha Raddatz attempting to keep things in order, without much success.

Trump supporters will love last night as he went on the attack and said he’d put Hillary Clinton in jail. Just like an autocratic, fascistic, dictator. Which is apparently what a number of his supporters want. Someone like Mussolini. They will also defend him saying the moderators gave Clinton more leeway and cut him off more. There is truth to that charge, too. Although Trump interrupted Clinton far more than she interrupted him.

I give Hillary Clinton a B for doing what she needed to do, although she was incorrect on a couple of items. I give Donald Trump a C for an adequate performance, but he wouldn’t answer questions, he would kind of address the question, go off elsewhere, and then maybe come back to the question.

But did it change anyone’s vote? I doubt it.

Ethan Explains VP Debate Winner

Ethan Explains VP Debate Winner

The Vice Presidential debate went down last night in Virginia. Did you actually watch?

It was a more interesting debate than I expected, and in unexpected ways. Mike Pence, the Republican governor of Indiana remained composed while Tim Kaine, Democrat Senator from Virginia, was unhinged. I think Sen. Kaine took the idea of attack dog a little too emotionally and jumped in far too often and tried too hard to cram in his points. That approach doesn’t work.

Tim Kaine was the Donald Trump of last night’s debate.

Sadly, few of you are able to objectively view the debate and only see it through your partisan lens. Regardless, I doubt any votes changed as a result of last night. What do you think?

Ethan Explains VP Debate

Ethan Explains VP Debate

Tonight is the one and only Vice-Presidential debate. In the right corner wearing red will be Gov. Mike Pence from Indiana. In the left corner wearing blue will be Sen. Tim Kaine from Virginia.

This is being billed as the substantive debate between two men who have served in both executive and legislative branches. But does substantive mean boring? Or will they make sure to attack the opposing presidential candidate?

It likely will be boring without Gov. Bill Weld from Massachusetts on the Libertarian ticket to mix things up. In order to attract more viewers and present additional ideas to us, he should have been included. Just like Gov. Gary Johnson should be at the presidential debates.

I predict we’ll see a drop from over 80 million viewers for the first presidential debate to around 10 million viewers for this VP debate.

Fox News Happening Now 9/28/2016

I had the pleasure of joining Jenna Lee on Fox News Channel’s Happening Now on 9/28/2016. I was on the panel along with Joe Carraro a retired New Mexico State Senator, and Dr. Costas Panagopoulos from Fordham University.

We discussed how Independents (No Party Preference/NPP here in California) are viewing the presidential race after the first debate.

I share how I thought neither candidate moved independent voters, why I am an independent, how I think the system is broken, and why I am optimistic for the future!

Please tell me your thoughts below and share with your friends!

Ethan Explains First Presidential Debate

The first presidential “debate” is tonight! Donald J. Trump will “debate” Sec. Hillary R. Clinton with Lester Holt moderating.

I use quotes around the word debate, because these aren’t really debates with rules that are followed. No microphone gets turned off when someone goes over time, for example.

Will anything about the “debate” change your mind? Or are these just publicity stunts now where each side will cherry pick what their candidate said while viciously attacking the opposing candidate? And they will all claim poor Lester Holt didn’t do a good enough job?

BTW, where is Governor Gary Johnson and why isn’t he going to be on stage? I think any candidate polling higher than 5% should be included in the debates. That’s the only way we’ll get viable third parties in this country. We really do need more than the broken duopoly which provides us what I think of as a false dichotomy of D versus R.

Fox News Appearances October 2015

Who would pass up a chance to be on Fox News Channel’s The Kelly File and Red Eye with Tom Shillue? I didn’t pass and joined Megyn Kelly’s post-Republican debate group panel on October 29, 2015 and then Red Eye early on October 31st.
