On September 11, 2013, a group of BIKERS from around the nation came together to ride in honor of the fallen victims of 9/11/2001. A week before the event, the media was paying zero attention to the organizers and the Parks Department in DC denied the riders a permit. That's when I got behind the event. Don't know how much I had to do with it, but who cares, within 36 hours the ride captured the attention of the nation.
Despite not being a biker, I felt compelled to join the ride. I cancelled my NEVER FORGET speaking engagements for the week and headed to DC so I could document what turned out to be a day filled with patriotism, passion and pain. Unfortunately, the mainstream media never made mention of the event.
The film I've created is called, "The 9-11 Freedom Ride." It gives an explosive account of both the good and bad that occurred before, during and after the ride. The film will be available on Nov. 5, 2013, exclusively on DMLdaily.com To stay informed please register your email or go to Facebook.com/DMLdaily
I expected to launch the all new DMLdaily.com on 9/11/13. But then I decided to participate in the BIKERS RIDE TO DC on 9/11. Having filmed the event from start to finish, I've decided to launch the new website on November 1, 2013. It's the same day I will premiere the BIKER RIDE Documentary in Phoenix, Arizona.
To stay informed, please register your email address on this website. I will not sell or share your information.
On 9/11/13 I will launch DMLdaily.com
Each year, I usually spend September 11th by myself. I have a few cocktails and think myself to sleep. This year I'm doing something different. I'm launching a new initiative because the media is divisive; the media encourages citizens to be angry at one another. As an American it pisses me off. As an entrepreneur I see opportunity.
It's time for an outlet that is fueled by love of country. A place that invites liberals and conservatives both young and old to come together. DMLdaily.com will offer a daily radio address, videos, films, news, Op-Eds, live events and photo galleries. And to the folks who believe it can't be done, either they don't know me very well or they are just downright foolish because I do not accept failure as an option."

There are many changes taking place in my life right now -- one of them is my new appreciation for how important God is in my life. Too many things have happened recently for me to ignore His presence. And so I share this story...
On September 1, 2013, I will launch DMLdaily.com It's a magazine style news and opinion website that offers an array of content centered around the rebuilding of America. To stay informed of the launch, please register your email on this page (bottom right). I will not share or sell your information.
On June 19, 2013, I was given the great honor of participating in a press conference held on the lawn outside the Capital. Somehow, I was placed in the lineup to speak immediately after Glenn Beck and right before Ted Cruz. I hope there will be many more times like this one. (The heckler says, "You are liked by all the ladies." I should have replied, "I don't think Hillary and Michelle would agree.")
The call came in from the PR firm... "We booked you on Dennis Miller's radio show." I had never met Miller but I enjoy seeing him on the O'Reilly Factor.
Most radio interviews operate the same. They start with the producer calling my phone to test the line. Then I ask, "How long is the segment?" Typically, segments are 4, 10 or 20 minutes. I base my talking points on the length of a segment. I was told I had ten minutes.
My interview started with Miller's wise cracks about us sharing the same name. Then he asked about They Come to America 1. I didn't want to discuss the first film -- it cuts into my time speaking about They Come to America 2. I tried rushing through and working around his questions. Miller wasn't happy.
Before I dive into Christie, it's important for me to express the following:
1) I believe the worst decisions and comments are made when a person is emotional, and
2) There are three people in this world who I truly despise. President Obama, Alec Baldwin and my aunt from Florida.
Now that that is out of the way, onto my opinion about Chris Christie's decision NOT to use the legal power granted him. Meaning, Christie could have appointed a Republican to the open Senate seat created by the death of Frank Launtenburg, but instead he called for a special election. Thus, he is allowing the people of NJ to decide who represents them in the Senate.
On May 21, 2013 I drove to Columbus, Ohio and presented testimony in favor of a BILL that would prevent any illegal immigrant from obtaining a driver's license. I was told my testimony should run 10-15 minutes and that I should expect one or two questions. I was kept for an hour.
I've cut down the testimony to include the most interesting and powerful moments. In less than 24-hours of posting the video to YouTube on Memorial Day weekend it received over 1100 views. The number continues to climb. If you care about illegal immigration and the rule of law, I think it's worth the 33 minutes.
Marco Rubio is discrediting the recent report published by the Heritage Foundation. The report states immigration reform in it's current form will cost taxpayers $6.3 Trillion. Rubio claims the report is, "Deeply flawed." I agree, only I think it's flawed because it is too conservative.
The costs will be far greater. The reform BILL crushes the middle class who will now lose their jobs -- or lose the potential to get a job. What jobs are at risk? Professions such as delivery driver for UPS and FEDEX, law enforcement, postal worker, nursing, security, construction, department store clerks and managers, the list goes on and on and on.
Once the BILL passes and the illegals become legal, they will be in hot pursuit to grab the better paying jobs that offer benefits. And please note, the ACLU and advocay groups like LaRaza will place tremendous pressure on companies to ensure they are hiring the "new Americans."
Marco Rubio is selling out America. He knows everything I've written here is true. And if he doesn't, he has no place being a US Senator let alone a presidential candidate.
Marco, our citizenship isn't something that comes inside a Cracker Jack Box.
At the bottom of this post is a video of Paul Ryan playing politics with immigration reform and buttering up to Congressman Luis Gutierrez of Illinois (D). Gutierrez is a fighter for the Hispanic community, which is cool, but elected officials are supposed to represent everyone. Luis is an uno demographic guy. (I suggest you visit his website and browse the press releases.)
Ryan panders to the crowd with 5-key elements to immigration reform. My alarm goes off when he goes gimmicky by suggesting the government will collect fines and back taxes. And then he gets super gimmicky, "The illegal immigrants have to go to the back of the line."
In Houston, the fine for parking in a handicap parking space without a permit is $500. So the soccer mom parks illegally for 3-minutes to drop off dry cleaning and BANG -- $500 fine. I bet she won't make that mistake again. Compare that to the fine proposed in the immigration reform BILL. A person crosses our border illegally. They live and work here for years, in some cases, decades. Their kids go to our schools free of charge. They drive without a license or insurance so they can get to a job that should go to an American. The punishment for such behavior is $2,000 and a path to citizenship.
The idea of collecting back taxes is ridiculous. How many illegals are going to turn over a stolen SS card? How many will claim years of collecting cash and wiring funds out of the country? Fact is, it takes a few seconds to rubber stamp a person versus days to investigate the truth. The government is going to fast-track the entire process and collect peanuts. Every immigration lawyer in America knows this to be true and will advise their clients to play dumb.
As for illegals going to the back of the line? I ask, "What line?" The illegal is already here. The day the BILL is signed the illegal is legal. Welcome to the new America where we reward the law breaker and punish the law abider. Paul Ryan, good luck outdoing Rubio for the Latino vote in 2016.
In the coming weeks, TV360 Films will release THEY COME TO AMERICA II. Immediately thereafter, we'll be launching DMLDAILY.com It will offer films, videos, news programming and commentary concerning politics, health and finance. To stay informed, please like us on Facebook.
An excerpt from my interview with Armstrong Williams. The full half hour show will air in February. We're talking about Obama, the Constitution and my big wish with Armstrong Williams.
I decided to buy the newest Apple editing system for $7k. The Apple salesman says the machine takes 10 days to assemble and ship. In short, I'd receive it by December 17 (yesterday). Well, the computer never arrived.
I contact Apple. The service rep claims the order was cancelled. I push back, "I didn't cancel the order." She's sorry and offers free shipping if I place a new order. I ask, "Can you ship it overnight?" She rejects my request. I offer to pay for the overnight shipping. She replies, "We can't ship overnight because the computer is assembled in China."
I've heard enough. I say, "Apple assembles the product in China? How much money does Apple need? How high does your stock price have to climb? Apple gladly sells its goods to Americans but it won't hire Americans to make the goods?"
I ended, "Miss, I know it's not your fault but please tell your manager I'd love a new editing system, but I love my country more. I'm never ordering another Apple product until Apple returns its manufacturing to US soil."
When 26 people, most of them children, are shot dead by a madman in Newtown, the country feels uncontrollable sadness. Then the sadness turns to anger and frustration. People will begin to ask why this happened? They will point fingers, demand answers and suggest guns are evil.
Although it's part of an investigation to track the gun ownership, personally, I think it's more important to understand how and why the madman broke into a school and killed innocent people.
Although I am honored to be on the cover of the November issue of SOCO Magazine, it is impossible for me to ignore the mistakes and misquotes appearing in the article. None of them will do any harm, but it forces me to believe that responsible journalism is dead.
I was interviewed more than a month ago, so there was plenty of time for SOCO to get the facts together. Here's an example... In the article, they mention I'm currently the Founder and CEO of a computer company. The fact is I left the company 14 years ago. I am currently the Founder and CEO of a video and film production company. Does it matter? Probably not because it's irrelevant to the story. That is unless someone reading the article asks themselves, "How and why does the CEO of a computer company find time to produce a film about illegal immigration?"
I'm willing to bet that most of what gets fed to us from the media has some level of inaccuracy. How can it not? TV, magazines, newspapers and websites all compete in an environment dictated by speed. They feel forced to deliver news instantly. If they don't, the competitor next door will and thus, peril is a certainty.
Quality is the price we pay for speed. Double checking and confirming facts are too time consuming. Let's face it, ACCURACY is no longer a box on the journalist's check list. Not only is this sad, it's very dangerous.
I truly miss the old days when journalistic integrity meant something. Do you agree?
