This three-hour documentary series on the life of former Secretary of State George Shultz presents viewers with a rare close-up look at this remarkable man who served his country at the highest level during an unforgettable time. Each of the three programs offers a never-before-seen look at the inner workings of the Reagan White House. It captures the intrigue and in-fighting as advisors vie for the ear of the president over historic issues such as Arms for Hostages and the Star Wars space defense initiative.

Through the memories of George Shultz, other cabinet members, journalists and historians, viewers relive the gripping tensions of these times; the fear of war in the Middle East, the shock of the barracks bombing that killed 220 Marines in Lebanon, the fall of Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos and the presidency of Corazon Aquino and the delicate manipulations of summitry that helped determine the future of peace on the planet. For the first time these programs reveal Shultz’s dedicated efforts to protect his President and expose those in the White House who plotted the illegal Iran/Contra scheme. Throughout, George Shultz’s relentless determination combined with his use of national strength made him one of the most effective secretaries of state in the nation’s history. The series offers George Shultz’s remarkably vivid portraits of the major players on the national and world stage in the latter years of the twentieth century. But Shultz’s most remarkable and revealing portrait are of Ronald Reagan himself. This three-hour PBS series is full of high drama and living history.

Is America in Retreat? Airing on Public Television

america_in_retreat_logo_short

When the U.S. assumed the PAX, it assumed responsibility for global order, but for how long? Just how deeply entangled should America be in the world’s affairs? What alternatives are there to being the world’s policemen? Is there really a downside to retreat? And in the absence of the U.S., how might global order be maintained – or decimated?  In a companion documentary to America in Retreat by Wall Street Journal’s Pulitzer Prize winning columnist Bret Stephens, Free To Choose Executive Editor and Cato Senior Fellow Johan Norberg examines the questions facing a nation leaning back toward isolationism.

School Choice: Let the Song Play On

Last week we dipped our toes in the waters of school choice and school vouchers.  Now, let’s put our hesitations aside and dive right in, because just like Mr. Dylan said, “The times they are a changin.” If all goes as planned, our new secretary of education will be implementing school choice in every state in America, not just her home state of Michigan. And still it’s not the idea of implementing school choice or school vouchers that seem to keep a dark cloud looming over the American people but more the idea of this system not being properly executed. School …

School Choice: That Same Old Song and Dance

What is it about Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos’ proposed school voucher system that has so many American citizens up in a frenzy? After all, school choice and school vouchers are not a new idea, sprung from the mind of one Miss DeVos. There is a multitude of evidence that shows that school vouchers and school choice works for many countries, like Belgium, France, Spain, Chile, Germany, and New Zealand. So one has to ask, is it the idea of using school vouchers to create equality in choice for parents, when it comes to their children’s education, or is it Betsy …

Beware The Social Media Echo Chamber

media-998990

The division in the country is alarming. Even before we knew the outcome of the election, the divisions that have surfaced over the past several months will remain for quite some time and heal rather slowly. People will point the finger at the candidates themselves, maybe even their supporters, but the fault may not lie with one person or even a group of people. The blame lies with something that happened right in front of your face, but never even realized. It happened within the algorithms that control your social media feed. The algorithms aggregate data based on what you click …
