My guest for the first 1/2 hour will be Gary Byrne
Gary J. Byrne served in federal law enforcement for nearly thirty years, in the U.S. Air Force Security Police, the Uniformed Division of the Secret Service, and most recently as a Federal Air Marshal. While serving as a Secret Service Officer, Gary protected President Bill Clinton and the First Family in the White House.
Gary has received letters of commendation and praise from Bill Clinton’s Chief of State, the Secret Service, and the acting director of the Federal Air Marshal Service.
Gary Byrne authored the Hachette Book Group bombshell, Crisis of Character: A White House Secret Service Officer Discloses His Firsthand Experience with Hillary, Bill, and How They Operate.
President-elect Donald Trump is planning a large “Thank You” tour across the country, despite an increasing number of death threats. Gary says this situation is unprecedented for a post-election President and will be a unique situation that the Secret Service must accommodate as agents are continually over-worked and maxing out on their billable hours.
Gary and I will talk a bit about his tenure in the Clinton White House, which gives Gary a unique viewpoint on the challenges facing Secret Service detail with President-elect Trump. We’ll talk about the logistics of multiple secure offices for POTUS and VPOTUS.
We’ll also talk about any inside baseball on Hillary’s opinion and treatment of the Secret Service versus Donald Trump…is there any consensus yet in the Secret Service community?
Don’t miss a minute of my conversation with Gary Byrne!
In the second 1/2 hour I will be talking to Joe Newby
Joe Newby is an IT professional who wrote for Examiner.com for six years.
His articles have appeared at Newsbusters, Spokane Faith and Values and other sites. He currently runs his own blog at the Conservative Firing Line.
Newby served 10 years in the United States Marine Corps.
Joe is also the co-author with Adina Kutnicki, a Muslim Brotherhood expert, of Banned: How Facebook Enables Militant Islamic Jihad.
Joe Newby and I will talk about his book and navigating the world of social media in these hyper-politically correct environs.
We’ll bring one of his recent columns into the conversation, “The Real Reasons Social Media Sites Censor Conservative Content.”
As Joe writes in the article:
Many have been conditioned to believe that sites like Facebook and Twitter are private companies and can therefore do whatever they wish. It’s true these are private companies but that has nothing to do with these bans.
There are two primary reasons these sites do what they do. The first is legal, the second is philosophical.
In 1996, Congress passed the Communications Decency Act, a measure signed into law by the president. In 2014, a federal judge ruled that Section 230 of that law gives sites like Facebook the power to censor even Constitutionally-protected speech with no legal consequences.
