      Ginni Thomas

      Virginia Thomas, 54, is a special correspondent for the Daily Caller producing videos of emerging leaders and educators in the public square. Her ear is to the ground outside the Washington Beltway as a social entrepreneur. Previously, she was the founder of LibertyCentral.org (nonprofit for citizen activists), and has worked at The Heritage Foundation, Hillsdale College's Washington office, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the senior levels of the legislative and executive branches of government. She has maintained her midwestern authenticity after 30 years in Washington, D.C. and enjoys motor homing and the Nebraska Cornhuskers with her husband, Justice Clarence Thomas. Her degrees are: Business Communication & Political Science from Creighton University, and J.D. from Creighton Law School (Omaha, NE).

Mark Stevens, CEO of MSCO, a marketing company in Rye Brook, N.Y., has tasted the worst of our politics recently.

His business was one of many targeted with threats and boycotts — tactics he describes as “economic terrorism” — for advertising during Rush Limbaugh’s radio show.

Stevens, who has been personally threatened by those seeking to limit his free speech, feels a new responsibility to help because of the emails he has received since going public with his story. Stevens speaks to each American who senses something is slipping away in this country.

You have seen the articles about how the left targets its enemies — here, here and here. Memorial Day is an appropriate time to listen to Stevens, an American patriot who is standing up to threats, intimidation and lies out of love for his country. Do not miss hearing his story,  passion, principles and hope.

Stevens grew up in Queens, N.Y., and his father died he was 17, leaving $84 was in the family bank. Suddenly, Mark had to grow up fast. People suggested the family go on welfare, but he refused.

Stevens has since written 25 books, and his latest one is Your Company Sucks: It’s Time To Declare War On Yourself.

The Daily Caller’s Ginni Thomas spoke to Mark about his experiences, what he would say to President Obama in an interview, his outrage at private equity firms hosting fundraisers for President Obama and why watching Bill Maher is like watching vomit.
