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.
So its that time again. As we look back at the major new stories of the year, a couple of themes emerge.
Close your eyes and imagine for one moment how radically different the entire world would be if Israel were at peace with its neighbors in the Middle East.
I dont usually get so personal in these columns, but today I want you to know that I feel particularly blessed. I am in the Holy Land with my friends, Dr. Ben and Candy Carson.
In todays society everyone seems to be aware that a healthy diet is key to maintaining good health, whether we choose practicing it in our lives or not. But a connection that seems more difficult for people to make is that food is actually medicine. That is, your food is your medicine if it enhances your health; but it can actually be a poison if we consume things that destroy the healthy functioning of the mind and body.
By the time Marion Barry died this November 23, he had already been buried several times by the mainstream media. But each time a chorus of praise seemed to breathe life into a career that many thought had been irreversibly damaged. For the most part, that praise came from the poor and the forgotten. His people were those left behind in D.C. when in the riotous aftermath of Martin Luther Kings assassination, many of the citys middle class resident hastened their flight to the rapidly developing suburbs.
Racism in America has often been reduced to white against black discrimination, and understandably so. After all, it was white colonist who forcibly removed Africans from their homeland and brought them to America to slave away on plantations.
Fed Chair Janet Yellens recent speech before at a conference on income inequality sponsored by Credit Suisse ruffled a lot of feathers, both on the right and the left of the political spectrum.
Ahh, those pesky midterm elections are here again.
This must be a difficult time for liberals, Democrats, and all other flavors of Obama followers.
In September the President gave a somber and yet reassuring-sounding speech concerning the United States response to the Ebola virus that is currently ravaging three West African nations.
The flames of conflict in the Middle East never go out, but in recent weeks they have been growing red-hot with increasingly dangerous implications for the United States. And President Obama is leading the United States headlong into the flames, but without a clear strategy in place that will avoid us from getting burned. Here we go again.
There is always a lesson in a crisis if youre humble enough to look for it. As the Ebola crisis spreads throughout West Africa, both the on-the-ground struggles and the international response have been enlightening to say the least.
The tale of Ferguson, Ohio is in many respects the tale of two cities. One half white, overwhelmingly Republican and conservative. The other half, black, overwhelmingly Democratic, and at least nominally liberal. In a perfect world, such a community would never come into such stark and intense opposition with each other.
Imagine for a moment that you are on your way to work driving down Main Street. You only make $25,000 a year so you cant afford to replace your broken tail light that got smashed last week in a fender bender.
There has been a lot of focus on the decline of fatherhood in the black community, as the proportion of black children growing up in single parent (overwhelmingly female headed) households has exploded since the 1960s.
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.”
