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:

FNC Laura Ingraham San Francisco Homeless Crisis

San Francisco homeless crisis

I joined Fox News Channel’s Ingraham 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:

Survey finds trash, needles, feces on San Francisco streets

Are progressive policies to blame for the sanctuary city’s terrible sanitation conditions?

FNC Rational Gun Control Policy

I joined host Jon Scott (a very nice man, BTW) for a discussion on gun control after the massacre in Parkland, Florida, Jamie Weinstein from National Review joined as the conservative commentator.

What do you think of my proposals?

Here is the transcript and at the bottom is the full segment from Fox News. In the full segment I lay out the argument for mental health checks, too.

The key is to make it more difficult to rapidly kill a large number of people in a very short period of time. I call for banning bump stocks immediately. Lets remove high capacity magazines immediately. At least, make it easy, Look, I’ve fired AR-15s. I have a DD 214 from the Army Reserve. I fired, I’ve gone skeet shooting. I’ve gone hunting. I know what it’s like to use firearms. There is a rational basis to limit what is available. Justice Scalia himself wrote in two 2009’s D.C. v. Heller that the government has every right to limit what the populace can buy in terms of firearms. Let’s go down that route and make it harder to kill 17 people in a very short window of time.

Media steps up calls for gun control after school shooting

Major media outlets urgently call for gun control as President Trump stresses the need to address America’s mental health issues; reaction from Jamie Weinstein, host of the ‘Jamie Weinstein Show’ on National Review, and Ethan Bearman, radio talk host show and author.

 

FNC Tucker Carlson Gun Control Mental Health

I joined Tucker Carlson Tonight again on February 15, 2018. In light of the horrific terror attack/mass murder in Parkland, FL yesterday, what should we as a society do to address this problem?

I argue a combination of addressing mental health and common sense solutions. Plus, get the National Guard at every school until we can resolve the issue.

HLN Carol Costello Trump’s Market Correction

On Tuesday, February 6, 2018,  I joined Carol Costello on CNN’s HLN in 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?

My other panelist was CNN Contributor and KABC talk radio host John Phillips

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.”

FBN Trish Regan Release The Memo

I joined Fox Business Network Intelligence Report with Trish Regan on January 31, 2018 to discuss THE MEMO aka The Nunes Memo. The four-page document, prepared by Rep. Devin Nunes, alleges significant abuses of power by the FBI during its investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia.

I debated the issues with Brad Blakeman regarding the partisan nature of the House Intelligence Committee’s memo that the President is considering releasing. This debate occurred before Rep. Adam Schiff announced that Nunes altered the memo after the vote and before the President received it.

FNC Tucker Carlson Plastic Straws Homeless

I joined Tucker Carlson again last night on Fox News to discuss California AB 1884 which will make distributing a single use plastic straw to a customer unsolicited a violation of the Health and Safety code.

I argued that plastic pollution is a significant and serious environmental problem. I support efforts to reduce, reuse, and recycle.

Tucker then tied homelessness into the topic. He and I battled over that topic as well where he advocates punishment and I advocate rehabilitation and housing.

Here is a highlight clip and below is the full segment.

HLN – Carol Costello – Budget Deal Block

Just before my radio show on Thursday, Janiuary 18, 2018,  I joined Carol Costello on CNN’s HLN via Skype. We discussed the odds of a budget deal between the Democrats and Republicans. Plus, a take on using DACA and CHIP as a bargaining tool for Republicans. My other panelist was CNN Contributor and KABC talk radio host John Phillips

Here is a little clip.”There is no deal to be made when the President changes his mind every morning at 6am Eastern Time and tweets about it”
“You can only go so far with playing with people’s lives before people start to realize that you’re just being downright mean…”
