❖ Dave Chase – Topic: Health Care Reform
During the recent midterm elections, voters identified health care concern as their number one issue. Virtually everyone agrees the country needs health care reform, but not on how to accomplish that. Dave Chase is the co-founder of Health Rosetta, which has been described as “a non-profit which accelerates adoption of simple, practical, non-partisan fixes to our healthcare system.” Chase is also the author of the recent book, “The Opioid Crisis Wake-up Call.” Dave Chase joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss common sense and conservative approaches to health care reform in this country. www.healthrosetta.org
❖ Jimmy Kemp – Topic: Conservative economic principles to help the down-and-out
The late Jack Kemp was a conservative with a big heart. (Note: I think true conservativism has a much bigger heart than is often recognized). Jack Kemp served as a nine-time U.S. Congressman. He was also a Vice-Presidential candidate in the 1996 election. Kemp suggested “enterprise zones,” a plan by which tax incentives would be given to companies to invest in blighted areas that were left behind economically. President Clinton borrowed from this idea in what he called “empowerment zones,” that helped to revitalize Harlem among other places. Kemp’s idea lives on and is now called “opportunity zones.” Recently conservatives celebrated Jack Kemp’s legacy almost 10 years after his death (in 2009). Jimmy Kemp, son of the late statesman, runs the Jack Kemp Foundation. Jimmy Kemp joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss Kemp’s legacy and “opportunity zones.” www.jackkempfoundation.org
❖ Donna Rice Hughes – Topic: P*rnography and Gary Hart scandal
A new movie (“Front Runner”) with Hugh Jackman deals with Gary Hart and the scandal that took him out as a leading potential Democrat candidate 1987. Dona Rice was in the center of that scandal. Today she is a born again Christian. Donna Rice Hughes heads up Enough is Enough, which has been fighting p*rnography quite effectively. She joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss a campaign to make McDonald’s and Starbucks Wifi friendly (with p*rn filters in place). They have launched “P*rn Free Wi-Fi,” an initiative to encourage corporate America to join the fight to prevent the Internet-initiated sexual exploitation of children. [a repeat] www.enough.org
❖ Eric Scheidler – Topic: Abortion
If abortion is so great, who do practitioners of it often have to deceive their way into a town? In a few different incidents, a future abortion clinic was touted as some sort of medical facility or medical office, with no reference to abortion. By the time the town understood what it really was, people were understandably upset. Recently, in Skokie, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, a new “Carafem” abortion facility has opened, through deceptive means. Eric Scheidler, the director of the Pro-life Action League, organized protests of the new facility. Eric Scheidler joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss these protests and also to discuss how the pro-life issue fared in the recent mid-term elections. www.prolifeaction.org
