1. ==> Donald Trump’s Foreign Policy Picks

“Donald Trump’s consideration of the usual hawkish
Republican retreads for top foreign policy and national
security posts threatens to take him down the well-worn
path of the Bush presidency he so vehemently criticized
during the political season,” according to Ivan Eland.
He says, “For such high security posts Trump should
consider fresh voices on the right who advocate the
more restrained foreign policy of the nation’s founders
— to be more aligned with Trump’s campaign rhetoric to
the American people implying fewer entanglements in
exhausting faraway foreign wars, better relations with
great powers such as Russia, and reassessment, and
perhaps a scaling back, of the costly U.S. role in a
globe-spanning network of outdated alliances.” Ivan
Eland is the author of several books including
“Recarving Rushmore: Ranking the Presidents on Peace,
Prosperity, and Liberty.” Contact him at (703) 282-3484

2.==> Trump and the Trans-Pacific Partnership

We all heard the soundbites, with each presidential
candidate, trade group, politician and special interest
group shouting their views about trade deals into the
public circus of opinion. Let Timothy Barnes give your
listeners an unbiased view of the trade deal. Who are
the countries involved? What does it cover? How did it
come about? is it similar to NAFTA? These are just some
of the questions the general public is demanding
answers for. Before a Congressional vote, it’s critical
that the public can provide their voice, with options
based on facts and knowledge instead of rhetoric.
Timothy Barnes is a business consultant and trade
expert. He’s the author of “A Naked View of the Trans-
Pacific Partnership.” Contact him at (919) 360-2876;

3. ==> Fear, Shame and the 2016 Election

Many people are wondering how on earth Donald Trump
could be our President and don’t understand how this
could have happened. But Rev. Dr. Rick Patterson says,
“In reality, it’s quite simple: Fear and shame – the
same reasons we make the decisions we make every day.”
He says, “It’s easy for folks to look down on people
who voted for Trump but it begins to make sense once
you ‘walk a mile in their shoes’ – and that’s what’s
important in this process – understanding how we all
make decisions based on our own needs stemming from
fear and shame.” Rev. Dr. Rick Patterson is the author
of the upcoming book “Shame: The Root of All Evil”
which explains how shame, which is the source of
narcissism, predicts and manipulates our behaviors and
decisions. Contact him at (269) 217-7897;

4. ==> Trump’s 4-Hour Sleep Habit

Donald Trump doesn’t sleep much. Last year on the
campaign trail he admitted, “You know, I’m not a big
sleeper. I like three hours, four hours, I toss, I
turn, I beep-de-beep, I want to find out what’s going
on.” But sleep experts say that’s dangerous behavior
and recommend at least seven hours of sleep for adults.
Should we be concerned that the person who will be
holding the highest office in America regularly sleeps
so little? Dr. Joe Alton can discuss some of the common
characteristics of people who get less than eight hours
of sleep per night, and whether healthy people can get
by on just a few hours of z’s. Joe Alton, MD is a
disaster preparedness expert, member of the Wilderness
Medical Society, and the author of “The Survival
Medicine Handbook.” He is a well-known speaker and host
of The Doom and Bloom™ Survival Medicine Hour
syndicated podcast. Contact Ryan McCormick at (516)

5. ==> What Now? Dealing with Uncertainty

The one thing everyone can agree on in the aftermath of
the election is that the future is TBD…To Be
Determined.  The question on everyone’s minds is “now
what?”  How can we best navigate through these
uncertain times?  Brenda Reynolds can share 5 tips for
helping you take control of a situation that feels out
of your control. Whether it’s the transition our nation
faces, your own personal transition or a change in your
business world, she’ll explain what you can do to find
greater clarity and confidence. Brenda Reynolds is a
transitions expert, consultant, speaker, and founder of

6. ==> Post-Election Health Issues -There’s a Remedy
for That!

As a homeopathic physician, Dr. Kathleen Fry says she’s
been busy lately with election-related ailments. “I
have had numerous calls from my clients this week
suffering from fear, anxiety or bouts of depression.
One woman told me that she hasn’t been able to stop
crying; another can’t sleep and tells me ‘my nervous
system is shot’.”
Invite Dr. Fry to share simple, inexpensive remedies
that are easily available and really work. She’ll also

help listeners ease their anxiety and sleep better.

7. ==> Don’t Flip the Bird on Thanksgiving

Your father and stepmother supported Clinton. Your aunt
and uncle love Trump. Your cousin was gaga for Bernie
and who knows for whom she voted. Your brother, the
conspiracy theorist, didn’t even vote. Just thinking
about all these folks gathered around the table at
Thanksgiving is enough to cause indigestion. Jen Coken,
a Washington, D.C.-based life coach and stand-up
comedian, knows what to do to “eat the bird” when you
feel really feel like “flipping the bird.” She’ll
encourage everyone to keep their sense of humor during
the holidays as well as to use her three keys: Stop,
Drop and Roll to put the thanks back into Thanksgiving.
Her tips include when to give yourself a time out and
what to do during it; how to redirect uncomfortable
conversation away from politics; and how to roll on
when opposing viewpoints threaten to rear their ugly
head. Coken operates a company called Embrace the
Ridiculousness of Life! and is the author of “When I
Die, Take My Panties: Turning Your Darkest Moments Into
Your Greatest Gifts.” Contact her at (303) 859-9081;

8. ==> Thanksgiving Family Survival Tips

Thanksgiving is the beginning of one of the most
stressful times of the year for families. Between the
in-laws, ex-laws, and step-laws, just deciding which
family to spend the holidays with can send us over the
edge. Tom Gagliano says, “Sometimes, returning home and
rekindling the family dynamics we grew up with can be
the most stressful of all. No matter what identity we
have tried to shape for ourselves in the outside world,
many of us are forced to face the roles we were set up
to play in childhood when we go back home.” Gagliano
will discuss ways to navigate family functions without
dread, how to change your role in the family, and why
families make us so crazy! Tom Gagliano, MSW, is a
mentor, speaker and the author of “The Problem Was Me.”

9. ==> Eat all You Want this Holiday & Not Gain
Thanksgiving is around the corner and after that comes
Christmas, Hanukkah and New Year’s. This is the time of

temptations that unchecked will pack on unneeded
pounds. Swee Lin Lim, author of “10 Easy Habits of
Eating Well, Being Well,” has made a careful study of
how to healthfully combine foods during the holidays.
She’ll explain why you don’t need to count calories and
share how to eat what you want without gaining weight
all holiday season long. You’ll learn what to eat for
breakfast and lunch before eating a traditional
Thanksgiving meal, and the right time to eat your

10. ==> College Scholarships for So-So Students?

As Steven Roberts crisscrosses the country speaking at
schools, businesses, and military installations, he is
continually amazed at how little most people know about
the huge pots of money available to pay for college
without taking out student loans. At one speaking
appearance at a time, he delights in opening their eyes
to resources even students with poor grades can tap
into that most families never know about. Roberts, a
former scholarship judge, says students—and
parents—need to get past their mistaken belief that you
need to be extraordinary to qualify for scholarships. A
popular talk show guest, Roberts’ own 2008 engineering
degree was more than paid for by 11 scholarships and
grants. He’s the author of “Winning the Money Game in

12. ==> Dr. Strange – Is Dream-Like Magic Possible?

Is it possible to affect the physical world in a dream-
like manner as Dr. Strange learns to in Marvel Studios’
new blockbuster movie? What do physics and other
disciplines tell us about the flexible nature of time
and how multidimensional reality can directly interact
with our normal daily lives? How do thoughts, feelings,
dreams, and especially our levels personal integrity
and self-mastery affect physical events? Can forces
from invisible realms, including dream events, actually
influence our waking world? Invite physicist and
internationally-respected dream and consciousness
author/researcher Craig Webb to discuss what we can
learn from Dr. Strange and from disciplines like
quantum physics, conscious dreaming, and mind-body
medicine. Webb has extensive media experience and has
consulted for Fortune 500 corporations, top
celebrities, and feature films. Contact him at

13. ==> Has Tech Made Us Fear Silence and Being Alone?

“In an age when people are never without their
smartphones, headphones and tablets, silence has become
scary,” says Andro Donovan, a leadership development
specialist. She says we are no longer accustomed to the
sounds of silence and have lost the ability to connect
to who we really are. She’ll discuss how noise and
distractions became 21st-century addictions and how to
use the Thanksgiving holiday to get unplugged, enjoying
a restful respite that allows you to be fully present
in your loved ones’ lives. Andro Donovan is best known
for her life-changing retreats which take place around
the world. “Motivate Yourself: Get the Life You Want,
Find Purpose and Achieve Fulfilment” is her first book.
