Screen Shot 2019-10-08 at 10.27.27 AM.png

On this edition of The Armstrong Williams Show, President Trump’s issues with the tech industry are discussed, the latest happenings with Trump and Ukraine are investigated, as well as today’s pressing news stories. 

Bernie Sanders suffered from a heart attack last Tuesday, 10/1, but was able to leave the hospital after three days. The question now is if this will have a major impact on his campaign. 

The example that Brandt Jean set with his forgiveness of Amber Guyger after her sentencing for  killing Botham Jean while he was in his apartment. Brandt, the victim’s brother, chose to forgive Amber Guyger for her mistake which ended with the death of an innocent man.  

Armstrong asks if Donald Trump has set a new standard for craziness. This comes after the released conversations Trump had with Ukraine. Adam Schiff is not getting away unscathed due to his lying multiple times on camera.

The new debate surrounding tech companies is examining their status as monopolies and whether potentially breaking them up is a solution. This is a new world with personal data, and artificial intelligence at the forefront. The DOJ is conducting investigations into Google and Apple and the FTC is after Amazon and Facebook. With the major tech companies cornering most the the advertising marketing, many smaller companies are needing to change their business model.

Your Voice Your Future: Technology

Screen Shot 2019-10-03 at 9.37.30 AM.png

On the latest installment of Your Voice Your Future, the focus is on technology.

We begin with a package from David Blumenfeld which examines Israel as one of the startup capitals of the world only behind Silicon Valley. Israel’s situation in the middle east, having very little water and natural resources, has not stopped it from making the desert bloom.

Military service in Israel is mandatory but this offers opportunities to get trained in cyber security. The IDF Cyber-Security Training Center is the building block of the technical startup culture in Israel. 

Nancy Conrad gives a personal description of who Pete Conrad was and how his education complimented his creative, technical personality.  

The advancements in technology have been potentiated with human innovation as well as building off of existing technology. The role of educators and parents in jumpstarting a child’s path into the fields of technology is crucial to keeping this pace of development.  

The internet has enabled the development of many technologies but has also led to the increase in automation. 

The future of humanity is going to be determined through technology’s contribution to society.

Screen Shot 2019-10-03 at 9.33.51 AM.png

On this edition of The Armstrong Williams Show, Mark Sanford joins the panel as he has announced his 2020 presidential campaign, challenging President Trump. After Mark Sanford answers questions regarding his experiences and plans, the conversation moves to the recent United Nations General Assembly meeting. 

Mark Sanford has twice represented the First District of South Carolina in the U.S. Congress, served as the 115th Governor of South Carolina, worked in real estate, operated his family farm and above all has had the blessing and honor of raising four great sons. Now he sets his sights on challenging President Trump in the coming 2020 election. 

Mark is given the opportunity to answer questions from Armstrong and the other panelists. Questions focus on topics and issues such as his strategy to reduce the national debt, what his foreign policy plans are, how revived impeachment talks impact his campaign, and what his plans are to win Trump’s base.

Renee Garfinkle gives her commentary on President Trump’s address at the UN as well as the recent developments with Iran and their military-naval exercises.

The United Nations General Assembly was overlooked by the media due to the recent impeachment talks. The impact of China and Russia deciding not to attend is discussed. Bruce Fein gives a quick history of the United Nations and defends Trump in regards to patriotism. The gun debate in America was brought up during the assembly meeting and we head to Las Vegas to speak with Genghis Cohen, owner of a shooting range, on the true nature of gun deaths in America.

Armstrong's Appearance on Fox & Friends

Armstrong Williams is a former advisor for Justice Clarence Thomas which gives him a unique perspective in relation to Fox Nation’s documentary, ‘The Confirmation Chronicles Vol. 2’. Justice Thomas went through multiple hearings in 1991 in response to accusations of sexual harassment. These public confirmation hearings turned into a trial where Justice Thomas was determined to clear his name.

 

The Armstrong Williams Show: Trump Administration Plans to Ban Flavored E-Cigarettes

On this edition of the Armstrong Williams Show, we discuss the recent E-cigarette concern, DC statehood, as well as Iran and Saudi Arabia tensions, and much more.

Considering Saudi Arabia’s involvement in 9/11, should we believe their claims that Iran attacked the oil reserves? An anonymous guest from the CIA joins the conversation to add an inside perspective on such a complicated matter. 

Renee Garfinkel gives her commentary on Iran and terrorist groups within the region. Ambassador Gray calls in to give his take on Ukrainian corruption and Bruce Fein and Deana Bass respond. 

It has been 30 years since DC held hearings about whether statehood should be considered. Ambassador Gray does not think this is consistent with the constitution and Deana is not thrilled with the potential outcomes of DC statehood. 

The vaping movement is underway and is comprised of every demographic you can think of. How is this market evolving and what is its history? Armstrong sees health and well being as the last concern of the corporations involved in this industry. It is a complicated issue where multiple federal organizations release contradictory information regarding vaping and the health complications of smoking. 

Armstrong pays respects and recognition to Cokie Roberts as a role model Journalist.

The Armstrong Williams Show: Conquering Our Fear of Differences

On this edition of the Armstrong Williams Show, Armstrong is back to live broadcasts in the new studio. Along with a distinguished panel, Armstrong dives into the recent major news stories regarding China, John Bolton, the Middle East, and much more.

Armstrong begins by asking Frank Gaffney about the China trade deal and its implications. The conversation about China continues by digging deeper into the complex relationship between the US and China. Are trade tensions resolving for substantial reasons or because tariffs would be problematic with Christmas coming?

The rift between President Trump and John Bolton is rooted in our military presence in the Middle East. Armstrong does not understand how we justify the spending in Afghanistan and our military presence in the Middle East. Trump is frustrated with the lack of results while Bolton disagrees with Trump’s suggestion to negotiate with terrorists. 

The Houthi attack on Saudi Arabia’s oil production infrastructure has been making waves. Iran is notorious for their connection with the Houthi movement which is increasing tensions in the region. 

These geopolitical events have Armstrong wondering if Trump concerned most for the long term security of the US or has a greater concern of his optics now.

Dr. Ben Carson was under investigation for misconduct in a furniture controversy and has finally been vindicated. Armstrong sits down with Dr. Carson to reveal the cost of this investigation and legal battle. 

The recent democratic debate and the focus on gun control is causing problems for gun control proponents. Beto’s inflammatory soundbites about gun confiscation did not help his campaign, other than his tee-shirt sales, nor the gun control movement.

Media has come to a point where there is little journalistic integrity which does not pair well with such a politically divided environment. Better education of journalists and less tribalism when it comes to investigation and facts might be a place to start.

Your Voice Your Future: Opportunity Zones and Community Revitalization

On the Your Voice Your Future: Opportunity Zones and Community Revitalization we focus on American communities and what it takes to bring them back to life. Under President Trump’s leadership, America continues to enjoy historic highs in the areas of employment, job creation, and economic growth; however, challenges remain in making sure that every American shares in the gains of the past two years.

For generations, the idea of the Federal Government providing housing assistance meant only one thing—helping to pay the rent so families can have a roof over their heads. But we must also think about how we can help families access financial programs, educational opportunities, and higher paying jobs. In short, we must think beyond investing in bricks and mortar, and think about investing in people.

Our distinguished panel includes Dr. Ben Carson, Jim Searcy, Alex Flachsbart, Kristina Scott, Scott Turner, Timothy Weaver, Denise Cleveland-Leggett, and Jeron Smith.

Poor Immigrants 

#StrongTalk w/ Armstrong Williams 

President Donald Trump’s new immigration rule wants to favor wealthy people coming into this country, not the green card seekers that can’t support themselves. Starting in October, to apply for permanent residency, you’ll have to meet high enough income standards. 

This rule is aimed at hundreds of thousands of immigrants who enter the country legally every year and then apply to become permanent residents. 

Now, I’ll be the first to say that I understand that this new policy comes off as insensitive to the plight of poor immigrants, to some degree. However, think about it like this. For many of us, family is the most precious thing in the world. I’m sure we all have at least a family member or two that constantly find themselves in a hardship. How many times have you helped those individuals? For many of us, the answer to that question is multiple times. 

At some point though, you get to a place where you get fed up. Yes, I said it. You grow tired of your family members emergencies becoming your emergency, and you tell yourself that you’re not going to cripple them any longer.

Well, let’s be honest with ourselves about something. America itself is in a bind. Whether we’d like to admit it or not, this country is struggling in a lot of areas, despite the rise in the economy in the past several years. We just simply can’t afford to continue to allow people from other countries to come into the United States without having the ability to support themselves. Do we not have enough people on American soil today who are homeless or part of the “working” poor?

How about those people? We’re still struggling as a country to fix those issues, so how can we continue to take on more people from outside countries who can’t take care of themselves? 

As a country, you get to a point where you’re just fed up and you have to cut people off. Now, I’m not saying that this should be the case long term, but what the Trump administration has introduced seems to be a good option for right now. 

Agree? Disagree? Your commentary matters. Join the debate on immigration by responding on social media or in the comment section below.

Epstein, Epstein, Epstein...

Epstein.JPG

(#StrongTalk w/ Armstrong Williams)

Do they really think we’re that stupid!?! According to federal officials, Epstein’s death was a suicide, but the fact that this was even possible is beyond baffling to me and many other Americans today. Was this man not one of America’s highest profile federal prisoners!?! There’s a reason why the FBI is investigating this. There’s a reason why Attorney General William Barr said he was “appalled” by the news.

And let’s not forget that this is a man who tried to commit suicide less than two weeks ago. He was then placed in solitary confinement and was supposed to be on suicide watch. So, how does this happen!?!

Oh and while we’re on the topic of solitary confinement...let’s talk about it. Is that not designated for prisoners who are a threat to the prison and those who are an escape risk? This man was a threat to HIMSELF! By placing him in solitary confinement, the prison staff basically handed him a noose.

Bottom line is...WE SHOULD DEMAND AN AUTOPSY.
