Paul Begala (Exclusively WSB)

Paul Begala has seen it all—government united, government divided, gridlock and clear sailing. He now draws on his extensive experience to give audiences an understanding of the impact of today’s political landscape on such issues as the economy, budget deficit, health care, immigration, the future of Social Security and Medicare, U.S. foreign policy, the on-going war in Afghanistan, the unrest in the Middle East and other critical issues facing the country here at home and around the world.

With traditional journalism watchdog groups like the Columbia Journalism Review now asleep at the switch, traditional investigative reporting may be the only way to can stop the downward spiral in journalism standards on the Israeli-Palestinian and other Middle East conflicts.   Behar is one of the only highly-regarded mainstream media reporters who is deeply exposing bias, laziness and sloppiness in the Western media world’s coverage of this region.  He’s done it in Forbes, and more recently in the Mideast Dig, which he and his growing top-notch team aim to become a multilingual, multilingual and multinational investigative news operation.  The Dig’s focus includes Iran; the financing of global terrorism; Islamic extremism; organized crime; the boycott-Israel movement; and the many under-the-radar business ventures between the region’s Jews and Arabs.

Since before the first al Qaeda attacks against American embassies in East Africa to the present day, Daniel Benjamin has been involved in America’s efforts to combat contemporary terrorism. As the longest-serving ambassador-at-large and chief of the State Department’s Counterterrorism Bureau and a White House counterterrorism official in the 1990s, Benjamin has been intimately involved in crafting the strategies that have weakened the world’s most formidable terrorist threat. Winner of the Council on Foreign Relations book award for The Age of Sacred Terror—a New York Times Notable Book—Benjamin provides a global perspective on the changing terrorist threat. He describes how the al Qaeda core in Pakistan has been crippled, and gauges the threats that have evolved in Yemen, Iraq and various parts of Africa. He examines the problem of Iran, the world’s foremost sponsor of terror, and its partner Lebanese Hezbollah. He describes how the Arab Spring has transformed the security landscape and the approaches we need to take to lock in the security gains of recent years. He also looks over the horizon at the long-term danger posed by the conflict in Syria and the sectarian strife now reshaping the Middle East and Persian Gulf.

John Bolton (Exclusively WSB)

Drawing from his decades of political and diplomatic experience, Ambassador John Bolton examines the threats and challenges facing America and its allies, including:  

  • China’s pursuit of an aggressive strategy in the South China Sea and an unprecedented buildup in cyberwarfare, nuclear weapons, ballistic missiles, and naval capabilities
  • Russia’s efforts to meddle in foreign elections, including our own, dramatically increased influence in the troubled Middle East, and growing pressure on neighboring countries in eastern Europe and the former USSR
  • The Middle East’s continued descent into chaos, with Israel threatened by terrorists, and Iran’s nuclear-weapons program, with ISIS and al Qaeda still menacing America and Europe

Ambassador Bolton will cover these or other topics of particular interest to your group, either in a stand-alone speech or as part of a debate or panel discussion. He shares with audiences:

  • Insight into the likely contrasts and continuities between Presidents Trump and Obama
  • Recommendations for dealing with strategic threats from Russia and China, and the longer-term threats of international terrorism and nuclear proliferation
  • Provocative thoughts on how to protect Israel’s security and that of other U.S. friends in the region, while bringing lasting peace to the Middle East
