My first guest on the Tami Jackson Show* will be Timothy Shea.

Tim SheaTimothy Shea has been active in GOP politics deep behind enemy lines in the Northeast for over 40 years.

He has served as a Town Meeting Member, Town GOP Committee Member, and state convention delegate in Massachusetts.

The former host of Radio RedNationRising, he is a political commentator and essayist.

Timothy and I will be talking about the National Popular Vote. There is a big push right now amongst disgruntled folks to ditch the Electoral College and pass a NPV bill.

Why is that a bad thing? How would a popular vote affect the balance of power in America? Why didn’t the Founders establish a national popular vote? Why a constitutional republic?

Timothy Shea will break it all down for us and make it clear, such that all of us can defend constitutional faithfulness and our electoral process.

Timothy is a favorite of mine and my top-shelf listeners, and, per usual, this will be fast-paced and too much fun to be legal!


My second guest tonight will be Senator Mike Lee.

Elected in 2010 as Utah’s 16th Senator, Mike Lee has spent his career defending the basic liberties of Americans and Utahns as a tireless advocate for our founding constitutional principles.

Senator Lee acquired a deep respect for the Constitution early on. His father, Rex Lee, who served as the Solicitor General under President Ronald Reagan, would often discuss varied aspects of judicial and constitutional doctrine around the kitchen table, from Due Process to the uses of Executive Plenary Power. He attended most of his father’s arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court, giving him a unique, hands-on experience and understanding of government up close.

Lee graduated from Brigham Young University with a Bachelor of Science in Political Science, graduated from BYU’s Law School in 1997. He served as law clerk to Judge Dee Benson of the U.S. District Court for the District of Utah, and then with future Supreme Court Justice Judge Samuel A. Alito, Jr. on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

Lee spent several years as an attorney with the law firm Sidley & Austin specializing in appellate and Supreme Court litigation, and then served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in Salt Lake City arguing cases before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.

Lee served the state of Utah as Governor Jon Huntsman’s General Counsel and was later honored to reunite with Justice Alito, now on the Supreme Court, for a one-year clerkship. He returned to private practice in 2007.

Today, Lee fights to preserve America’s proud founding document in the United States Senate. He advocates efforts to support constitutionally limited government, fiscal responsibility, individual liberty, and economic prosperity.

Lee is a member of the Judiciary Committee, and serves as Chairman of the Antitrust, Competition Policy and Consumer Rights Subcommittee protecting business competition and personal freedom.

Senator Lee has a new book out that is must reading for, well, every American, titled, Written Out of History: The Forgotten Founders Who Fought Big Government.

Senator Mike Lee and I, in light of upcoming Father’s Day, will discuss the impact his dad had on his life and worldview. We’ll talk about the Gorsuch hearings and the acrimony present in those judicial hearings.

And of course we’ll discuss his terrific new book and a few of the people he highlights in the book — such as Aaron Burr, Mercy Otis Warren, Iroquois Chief Canasatego — and the contributions they made to the U.S Constitution and founding.
