In the first 1/2 hour of The Tami Jackson Show* I will be talking to Tim Constantine.

Tim is a radio host and the spokesman for Rethink Ethanol, a coalition of environmentalists, small business, and industry that advocate to relax or repeal completely the Renewable Fuel Standard.

Tim Constantine hit the airwaves at age 13. At the time, his deep voice didn’t match his skinny frame and sneakers, but through the magic of radio, it really didn’t matter. As a young man he worked in Rock and Top 40 Formats. Later, while serving in elected office, Constantine returned to broadcasting, this time in the Talk Format.

Today Constantine broadcasts from Washington DC to listeners all across the United States. He combines his background in TV and Radio, his experience in public office, his controversial fall from grace and his hard-nose business approach with his understated sense of humor for one of the most entertaining radio programs anywhere.

Tim and I will be talking about the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS):

Congress created the renewable fuel standard (RFS) program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and expand the nation’s renewable fuels sector while reducing reliance on imported oil.

This program was authorized under the Energy Policy Act of 2005 and expanded under the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007.

Some important points we’ll cover:

  • Thanks to the swamp, Americans pay more and more for food each year. This is because of a government mandate called the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) written by and lobbied for by special interest groups. RFS mandates that 10% of gasoline be mixed with ethanol, a product of corn.
  • As gasoline companies complied with the mandate, the price of corn skyrocketed affected livestock farmers who depend on corn to feed chickens, cows, and pigs. Farmers were forced to increase their prices dramatically, and American consumers are left to pick up the bill.
  • Even environmentalists who originally advocated for the ethanol-gasoline mix are now advocating against the mandate, saying the the huge influx of corn productive is extremely harmful to the environment with excess nutrient running off from Midwest states to flow down the Mississippi river to the Gulf of Mexico, where dead zones affect commercial and recreational fishing and tourism – huge industries for Gulf States.

This is a conversation that affects each one of us and our daily lives — don’t miss one word and be sure to check out the Rethink Ethanol website for constantly updated articles, research and legislation!

My guest for the second 1/2 hour will be Gary Byrne

GaryByrneGary 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.

Byrne has a brand new, revealing book out, Secrets of the Secret Service: The History and Uncertain Future of the U.S. Secret Service, that enumerates the failings within the Secret Service itself: lack of leadership, lack of financial budgeting and accountability, and most importantly, critical failures in protecting presidents and other protectees.

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 Trump.

We’ll also talk about any inside baseball on Hillary’s opinion and treatment of the Secret Service. But most importantly, we will talk about his new book and what must be done to make the U.S. Secret Service great again!

Don’t miss a minute of my conversation with Gary Byrne!
