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.
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.
We need, as a society, to get back to celebrating mothers who sacrifice their careers to care for our most vulnerable, our children. And yes, we can have our cake and eat it, too. We have emerged from the former mindset that women are inferior to men, but we also must emerge from and reject the mindset that full-time mothers are inferior to working women or single mothers.
While Americans celebrated the new year on January 1, the date was a major milestone in the history of Nigeria. It marked 100 years to the day since the separate protectorates of Southern and Northern Nigeria were united.
One of our greatest achievements in the founding of our beloved America was the execution of our framers constructing two very essential aspects of the U.S. Constitution, that being both the concepts of federalism and the division of powers.
Watching the Olympic Games used to be like watching The Godfather, or Citizen Kane. You knew you were watching something spectacular, and you didn’t want the show to end.
What explosive emotions have erupted when Megyn Kelly of Fox news declared that our Jesus and Santa were white men? Let me focus on Jesus, which will readily address the Santa nonsense.
Particularly in this perilous era, could you imagine any American not wanting to prevent criminals or terrorists from entering the United States?
The debate about Comprehensive Immigration Reform keeps coming up and while several efforts to pass this sweeping legislation has failed several times, it is likely to be an issue for the next session of Congress.
In February and March of 1990, I had a profoundly life-changing experience.
The Social Security Act was passed in 1935 guaranteeing retirement pensions to all Americans over the age of 65. Sounds like a good deal… except for the fact that the average American life expectancy back in ’35 was 61.7 years.
Every day, people across this country decide that they are going to give up their nine to five and start a business.
Over the past few years bullying has become a hot topic of conversation. Perhaps I should amend that: bullying has become a hot topic in the media as it has been pushed by progressives to force mainstream acceptance of their agenda.
On a trip to Israel several years ago, I met and bonded with the notable Pulitzer prize nominated journalist and award winning author, Edwin Black. He has been a guest on my TV/Radio shows on several occasions. When he asked me to be a part of his new publication, Financing the Flames, I was more than pleased and prompted me to write this piece to be published and shared with the world.
Watching the current debate swirl around the Washington Redskins I can’t help but shake my head. The issue of a name change is a tired issue which we have heard about before.
Usually when two sides cannot come to an agreement, they can let an arbiter weigh their arguments and settle the dispute. Some arbiters try to find the optimum compromise, while others simple rule in favor of one side over the other.
There are three basic arguments against Obamacare. Obamacare shows us that adding a right to health care has already taken away the most basic First Amendment right of Catholics to exercise their religion.
I can tell you several things that did not cause the Navy Yard Shootings last week: AR-15s, video games, and partisanship. On the flip side, I can tell you what contributed to the massacre: mental instability, poor security, and a failure of the vaunted clearance system and NSA.
One of the founding principles of our great republic is stated in the first line, second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence, “We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal…” The idea of equality governs our interactions and expectations.
