My first guest on the Tami Jackson Show* tonight will be Marion Smith.

Marion Smith is a civil-society leader, expert in international affairs and has been Executive Director of the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation since March 2014. As Executive Director, he provides strategic leadership for VOC and spearheads its educational initiatives.

In addition to his work at VOC, Smith is also founding president of the Common Sense Society, an international foundation that promotes civic engagement, entrepreneurship, and leadership virtues among young professionals in the United States and Europe.

Smith is a native of South Carolina, where his ancestors fought as both Patriots and Tories during the American War of Independence. He graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Wofford College with a bachelor of arts degree in Government and History.

He has studied in England, France, The Netherlands, and Hungary, where he received a masters’ degree in International Relations from Central European University. He is chairman of the National Civic Art Society and was previously a visiting fellow at the B. Kenneth Simon Center for Principles and Politics at The Heritage Foundation.

Smith’s research focuses on the role of ideas in American foreign policy, U.S. diplomatic and military history, and on the future of transatlantic security cooperation.

His articles have appeared in various publications, including USA Today,, The Hill, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, National Review, and The Weekly Standard.

Marion and I will talk about Otto Warmbier, the latest victim of communism, joining more than 100 million who have been killed over the last century. Kim Jong-un and the North Korean regime now have the blood of an American on its hands.

Many Americans think, because the Cold War is over, Communism is not a threat. Marion will fill us in on the truth and outline imperative actions for the United States.


My second guest tonight will be my friend, Jeff Dunetz.

The conservative voice from the People’s Republic of New York, Jeff Dunetz is a bit of a fish out of water: a New Yorker, a Jew, and a conservative.

Jeff DunetzJeff often mixes a dash of shpiel political theory, religion, and New York attitude in his political news and commentary which can be found at at his own sites, Lid Blog  and Lid’s Vids , at, and at his weekly political column in The Jewish Star.

Dunetz also hosts his own show, The Lid, every Wednesday at 2PM ET on SHR Media.

Jeff is hands down not only a seasoned political commentator, but truly one of the most knowledgeable writers concerning Israeli/American relations. And as most of my listeners have discovered, Jeff Dunetz is one very funny guy.

Listen in as Jeff and I discuss his latest columns: “New York Post Calls Out Anti-Cop Mayor DeBlasio With EPIC Front Cover,” “Adding Fire To the Smoke: Trump Jr. Releases Russian Meeting Email Chain,” and more.
