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.
"Why do Blacks overwhelmingly support President Obama?" That was the question recently put to me by a white friend. My reply was simple and straightforward, but the in-depth answer is neither.
On September 11, 2001 we watched in horror as terrorists toppled the Twin Towers in New York City. They recently struck again with twin bombings in the heart of Boston.
If you do a search of the wealthiest black businessmen, the results may not come as a surprise to you. The list is dominated by athletes and entertainment figures; in fact, only 2 names consistently come up that are what you would consider traditional businessmen.
It was no accident that Israel was President Obama’s first foreign visit in his second term. He had something to prove to the people of the Jewish state, and he appears to have succeeded.
Obesity and unhealthy living are as much a problem in this country as government over-regulation. Lately, we’ve seen several prominent politicians weigh in (no pun intended) on this topic.
In 1996 President Bill Clinton announced, “The era of Big Government is over.” He balanced a budget by eliminating waste and inefficiency.
Most people always envy athletes for their fame and money, but really they should envy their work ethic. Now I know they have it great, they play a game for a living and make millions of dollars, but it takes a lot of blood, sweat, and tears to get there. Unlike many in society, they have to to earn their success based on their merits, they weren’t given anything.
New reports are released every single day in Washington, but one that could prove to be of life or death importance was unveiled this week by The Henry Jackson Society, a bipartisan think tank headquartered in London. Al-Qaeda in the United States: A Complete Analysis of Terrorism Offenses holds up a mirror to America and provides us with a clear but terrifying image.
Dr. Ben Carson, Presidential Medal of Freedom winner and legendary neurosurgeon, is now in the spotlight for his keynote address to the National Prayer Breakfast on February 7. It’s not brain surgery to figure out why.
Change happens whether you like it or not, whether you want it to or not. That doesn’t mean that change is good.
We now mourn the passing of 87-year old Essie Mae Washington-Williams, who in December 2003 confirmed one of the oldest rumors of Southern political folklore: that she was the mixed-race daughter of former US Senator Strom Thurmond (R-SC).
Right now the Democratic talking points are that we should raise or repeal the debt ceiling to “pay our bills.” Liberals have some pretty illogical ideas—like shutting down the government to give Planned Parenthood a few hundred million dollars, or raising everyone’s taxes in order to tax the top 2%--but this one might be the hardest to grasp of all.
Recently on Roland Martin's "Washington Watch" we discussed what must be President Obama's exclusive agenda to empower black America is his second term. The only advice I could share with Roland's national audience was that American Blacks must cultivate an entrepreneurial spirit independent of any president in the White house.
Usually, I like to use this space to start a conversation about the political and social issues facing our country as a whole; I try to focus on issues that either explicitly or implicitly affect everyone.
As we mark the Second Inauguration of the first American black president, it is important to celebrate our successes in achieving the protection of civil rights for all people. But, sadly, this president has a terrible record on civil rights.
Today it’s Lance Armstrong, but tomorrow it will be someone else, which is why I believe it’s time to say enough. No more free passes for our children’s role models.
Another day. Another scandal. Another high-profile celebrity headed to Oprah’s couch to express contrition and try to resuscitate his image. Today it’s Lance Armstrong, but tomorrow it will be someone else -- which is why I believe it’s time to say enough is enough. No more free passes for our children’s role models.
Sometimes, looking at the political discourse in this country, I wonder if we really understand the ratchet effect of increasing government programs and power over time: unlike in business, unlike in nature, unlike in, well, real life, failure is not punished, but at best ignored, at worst rewarded. Once a program is in place, it is almost never repealed, even when Republicans obtain political power because voters become dependent on it.
If you are a conservative you probably did not like the fiscal cliff deal that just passed, but the mainstream media overlooked a few important things that help many people and the economy.
Time Magazine has just named President Obama as their Person of the Year. This has been, of course, controversial, and for the usual reasons: much like with the President’s Nobel Peace Prize, one has to wonder what he actually did to deserve it. Surely getting re-elected is important, but beside the point; what matters is what you do in office, and I just don’t see much in the way of achievement by the president this year, in which he spent most of it either campaigning or doing nothing to avoid rocking the boat before the election.
