Presentation starts slow, but very important explanation here.

Mr. Goodwin puts feet to my thoughts and I didn’t have the words. I respect him and his background. I am trying to be a good independent. Journalism and writers are making it harder and harder.
I’ve been a journalist for a long time. Long enough to know that it wasn’t always like this. There was a time not so long ago when journalists were trusted and admired. We were generally seen as trying to report the news in a fair and straightforward manner.
I often found myself telling my students that the job of the reporter was “to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.” I’m not even sure where I first heard that line, but it still captures the way most journalists think about what they do.
Who really, actually runs America? We think the elected officials and their appointed officials and servants do. It is obvious to me that now President Trump and then President Obama and their cabinets with the Congress, do not run the the US of A. Someone else does!More
Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Asra Q. Nomani appear before a senate panel to explain the plight of muslim women in the world and in America. But there were not heard. They postulate that they were not seen. Neither heard nor seen, they left dismayed.
Just as we are invisible to the mullahs at the mosque, we were invisible to the Democratic women in the Senate.
We want US Constitutional Law to be the law of the land in all of the USA.
