On RIGHT IN DC today, our guest is my dear friend Rick Manning, the President Americans for Limited Government. A long time public affairs professional, Rick served as the Public Affairs Chief of Staff at the U.S. Department of Labor during the George W. Bush Administration, where he was twice recognized by the Secretary for Exceptional Achievement. Born and raised in southern California (but don't hold that against him), Rick graduated from the University of Southern California working his way through school running political campaigns. Shortly thereafter, he became a state lobbyist for the National Rifle Association for nine years responsible for the southeastern United States, Maryland and New Jersey. At NRA, Rick worked closely with local groups to pass the groundbreaking concealed carry law in Florida which has subsequently served as a national model. A veteran of dozens of corporate communications and grassroots campaigns, Manning has emerged as a leading voice in the conservative community with columns appearing in The Hill, Investor’s Business Daily, FoxNews.com and other major publications across the nation. Rick lives in Chesapeake, MD with his wife and he is active in his local church. On the show, we discuss: • The historic North Korean Summit • Why it Is summit consistent with President Trump’s view that America needs to focus on America first • Is this the right time to go into the negotiations for this summit • The Chinese-Vietnamese nexus in previous negotiations • His thoughts on the end of the Mueller investigation • Connections between the power players in Washington, DC and how much personal relationships prevent trying to limit government • Why members of Congress should spend more time in their district than in Washington, DC • The value of the idea of moving the Capitol to different places in America every 10 years • Why the unelected staff on the Hill are the real power in Congress and how to stop this • The reasons government agencies/departments should be moved out of Washington to different areas in America • How electronic voting is rife with fraud and the value of face-to-face conversation • Should conservatives engage in a the public debate about socialism • His in-depth analysis about the Paid Family Leave Act and how it will be disastrous for small businesses and women MORE Americans For Limited Government https://getliberty.org/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/LimitGovt Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/AmericansForLimitedGovernment/ - - - - Follow Gayle Totter: https://gayletrotter.com twitter.com/gayletrotter www.facebook.com/gayle.s.trotter/ instagram.com/gayle_trotter Support Gayle's RIGHT IN DC Podcasts: www.patreon.com/gayletrotter
