Vocal Point-Ted Baehr

Dr. Ted Baehr is the founder and publisher of MOVIEGUIDE. He’s also the Chairman of the Christian Film & Television Commission. He has written many books providing a Christian perspective on movies. His research through the years documents that for the most part, audiences crave content with a moral message. G-rated movies tend to do significantly better than R-rated movies. Dr. Ted Baehr joined Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point recently to discuss movies from a Christian perspective.


Vocal Point-John Tamny

Did the recent tax cuts not go far enough? John Tamny, director of the Center for Economic Freedom at FreedomWorks, basically argues as much in an article he wrote for Forbes. In that piece, he writes, “The GOP erred. While it’s easy to characterize the state and local tax (SALT) deduction as a substantial loophole that fosters prodigality within high-tax blue states, the reality is much more nuanced. ” John Tamny joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss a conservative critique of the recent tax cuts.


Vocal Point-Dr. Paul Kengor

Dr. Paul Kengor is a pro-life author of books and articles. He teaches political science and history at Grove City College. When Cecile Richards announced her retirement recently at Planned Parenthood, Dr. Kengor wrote an article called: “Thank you, Planned Parenthood. God bless you.” These are not Kengor’s sentiments, but rather those of former President Barack Obama.

Kengor describes “a love-fest at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington on April 26, 2013” between Obama and Richards and the whole Planned Parenthood organization: “’I love you!’ shouted one of the abortion girls. ‘I love you back,’ responded the abortion president. It was a mutual-admiration society: each side in gratitude to the other for keeping the doors of America’s abortion mills open and for the added plus of forcing taxpayers to grease the cogs and wheels and blades inside.” Dr. Paul Kengor joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss the deadly legacy Cecile Richards leaves behind.


Vocal Point-Monica Burke

Recently, the House of Representatives passed a bill to disallow abortions after 20 weeks because of the pain the unborn children feel. However, this bill did not pass the Senate. The Heritage Foundation notes: “The U.S. is one of only seven countries in the world that allows elective abortion past 20 weeks, when science shows unborn babies can feel pain. The majority of Americans want abortion restricted to—at most—the first trimester. This is not novel or controversial policy as more than a dozen states across the country have 20-week bans on abortion.” Monica Burke of the Heritage Foundation joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss the “Pain Capable Bill” that was defeated.
