Called "one of the most recognized conservative voices in America" by The Washington Post, Armstrong Williams is a pugnacious, provocative and principled voice for conservative and Christian values in America's public debate.
An entrepreneur and third-generation Republican, Armstrong Williams has become a multi-media wonder, taking stands for what's right on radio and television, in print and cyberspace. Focusing on issues such as the work ethic, personal responsibility, welfare reform, affirmative action and especially the restoration of morality in today's society, Armstrong Williams brings an independent view with a refreshing twist to the central issues of our day.
Williams's daily television show, The Armstrong Williams Show, is broadcast live on America's Voice (formerly National Empowerment Television) television network. The program features human interest and political topics, including interviews with leading lights and experts from across the political spectrum, from GOP presidential candidates Pat Buchanan, Steve Forbes and Jack Kemp, to liberal media figures such as Crossfire's Bill Press and The Wall Street Journal's Al Hunt. One might also tune in and catch Armstrong Williams as a guest on any number of show on networks like CNN, C-SPAN, BC, CBS and CNBC, or as a regular guest commentator on the Fox Network and America's Black Forum.
Armstrong Williams's thoughtful but highly-charged column, syndicated with the Los Angeles Times, as well as numerous guest columns have appeared in newspapers large and small across the country, among them USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Times, and The Detroit Free Press, as well as his hometown newspaper, The Marion Star-Mullins Enterprise in South Carolina.
His 1995 book, Reawakening Virtues, (published by Simon & Schuster's Free Press) containing real life advice to a misguided young man, can be found in bookstores nationwide.
Before coming to television, Armstrong Williams hosted radio programs on several broadcast networks, with guests ranging from Dan Quayle and Bob Dole to Reverend Robert Schuller, poet Maya Angelou, and Hollywood mogul Norman Lear.
Finally, he is the CEO of the Graham Williams Group, and international public relations firm with clients in entertainment, politics, business and charitable organizations.
With all the pain and ongoing chaos in Ferguson, we seem to have forgotten the thousands of shootings that take place on a daily basis all throughout this nation.
?During the first week of June, the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) received a generous $25 million donation from conservative/libertarian billionaires Charles and David Koch.
As rockets continue to rain down on Israeli communities and Israeli troops act to quell the onslaught, I will be boarding a plane bound for the Jewish state to see with my own eyes exactly what is taking place.
For the life of me, I can’t seem to figure out why and how unions get into the business of educating our children.
For most Americans, Independence Day is a lot like the beginning of a baseball game. A famous artist sings the National Anthem and everyone in the stadium stands and places their hand upon their heart. Some people sing along or at least mouth the words, but most put on a fake look of sincerity thinking, “Ican’t wait till the song ends so the game can begin.”
It is a pernicious temptation to pity yourself.
?With urban crime nationwide undergoing a decade-long decline, Chicago sticks out like a sore thumb with its record homicides and rising crime rates over the past few years. The chaos in Chicago is particularly troubling given that Chicago is the home base of President Obama, and elected a mayor that was essentially hand-picked by the Obama administration.
?President Obama is doubling down in his defense of his blunder in defying the rule of law, exercising poor judgment, and mischaracterizing (I'm trying to be charitable) the service of Sgt. Bergdahl in his ill-conceived 'deal' to free the lone American serviceman held captive in Afghanistan.
?Polls consistently show that many Americans don’t know, let alone truly care about, what goes on outside the borders of this country. Walk down the aisle of your local grocery store and the trove of magazines available for purchase will lead you to the logical conclusion that most Americans are far more fixated on what goes in within the thirty mile zone of Hollywood than on life and death issues confronting people across the globe.
Donald Sterling’s publicly disclosed comments depict an anachronistic view of race relations in this country. His interview tour is beyond incomprehensible, sad, ignorant, and completely shows that he has lost touch with reality.
On Sunday night, 11 Nigerian girls were kidnapped in two remote villages in Northeastern Nigeria. These missing girls add to the list of up to 276 girls who are currently missing in that part of the country.
Rep. Bennie Thompson has covered himself, and the entire sweep of his brand of big government race-baiting liberalism, with another shroud of shame and ignominy.
With good reason the sports world is aflame over the recent remarks of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling.
Comedy has many approaches and subjects: leaders, governments, things we don't understand. In the vein of the latter, I suppose it is understandable to pick on religions.
All too often, rich individuals in this country are demonized for simply being rich.
Last week, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) decided to let college football players at Northwestern University unionize. Usually I am not in favor of unions, but clearly something must be done to change the way college athletes get compensated for their services.
One of the major factors in determining an “intact married home” is the amount of involvement parents have in their child’s life. The same holds true for single-parent households. Children that have parents heavily involved in their life are much more likely to be educationally successful, economically successful, and morally upright than children who do not.
For those young Americans who are unemployed, an increase in the minimum wage is a disaster. The first step on the proverbial economic ladder would be chopped off, trapping those young, low skilled Americans in poverty. Instead of hiring low skilled individuals, businesses would speed up investment in technology as seen by an increase in self-checkout machines at your local grocery store.
Our great nation is founded upon the freedom to exercise religion and the freedom to speak your mind. The very first amendment of our constitution guarantees these freedoms as God-given rights. You the individual can choose not to give into the cultural norm that looks down upon religious speak.
The idea that parents have no control over where their children go to school is unthinkable. The public school education system currently in America is exactly that. Children must go to a school based not on choice, but on five numbers-their zip code.
