In the first 1/2 hour I will be talking to Phil Kerpen.

Phil Kerpen 2Phil Kerpen is president of American Commitment, a nationally syndicated columnist, chairman of the Internet Freedom Coalition, and author of Democracy Denied.

Prior to joining American Commitment, Kerpen served as vice president for policy at Americans for Prosperity.

He has also worked as an analyst and researcher for the Free Enterprise Fund, the Club for Growth, and the Cato Institute.

A native of Brooklyn, N.Y., Kerpen resides in Washington, D.C., with his wife Joanna and their three children.

Phil and I will be chatting about “Net Neutrality” and why it should be ended.

Phil Kerpen argues that Obama’s Washington’s takeover of the Internet—a disaster for free speech, commerce, and the future of the Internet as a sphere of innovation—should be reversed.

For over a decade, professional liberal organizers and agitators—backed by a tidal wave of big liberal foundations and Silicon Valley corporate money—have told a bizarre scare story that without heavy-handed government regulation, Internet service providers (ISPs) will start blocking what websites you can go to and impeding free speech on the Internet.

No such thing happened in the approximately two decades that ISPs were unregulated “information services” under the 1996 Telecom Act. Indeed the opposite occurred as robust competition between phone and cable companies—and later wireless companies—drove speeds dramatically higher and consumers benefited from an Internet that innovated beyond our wildest dreams.

Listen in as Phil and I discuss the internet and free speech in the era of President Trump, and his article, “The Net Neutrality Noise Machine.”

In the second 1/2 hour I will be joined by Kellie Fiedorek.

Kellie Fiedorek serves as legal counsel with Alliance Defending Freedom, where she is a member of the Alliance Advancement Team.

Since joining ADF in 2012, Fiedorek has defended religious liberty, marriage, and the family against legal attacks. She has authored federal and state legislation, and advised members of Congress, governors, state attorneys general, state legislators, and policy organizations on how to preserve First Amendment freedoms.

Fiedorek has testified before state legislatures across the country on the importance of safeguarding religious liberty, free speech, the sanctity of life, and the right to privacy. She has also litigated cases defending the constitutionally protected freedom of citizens to live and work according to their conscience. Her appellate advocacy practice has included authoring and coordinating amicus briefs for pivotal U.S. Supreme Court, federal court, and state court appellate cases.

Fiedorek earned her Juris Doctor from Ave Maria School of Law in 2009. Before graduating from law school, she completed the Alliance Defending Freedom leadership development program to become a Blackstone Fellow in 2008. She is a member of the state bar of Florida, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Supreme Court, and multiple federal appellate courts.

Kellie and I will have a conversation about:

  • Most Americans, including nearly 25% of those identifying as Democrat, favor common sense restrictions on Abortions.
  • DNC Chairman Tom Perez’s comments on Friday are out of step with most American’s views on the sanctity of life.
  • The evidence is indisputable that a pre-born child is a human being. To those who pretend there’s still doubt: why do you err on the side of death?
  • Every innocent life deserves to be protected.
  • Pro-Choice is anti-woman. Abortion is not a one-time event; women have testified and research shows that it is an ongoing, painful struggle.
  • Close ties between the DNC and the abortion industry should concern women.
  • If you think the tobacco industry has glamorized dangerous behavior that leads to disease and death and is only concerned with profit, take a look at the abortion industry. Just as Americans don’t want taxpayer money going to Big Tobacco, every American should be outraged that Big Abortion has received billions in public funds from politicians aligned with the DNC and its chairman.
