July 23, 2009 - PRLog -- African-American Conservatives will interview South Carolina senator, Jim DeMint, author of the newly released book, "Saving Freedom: We Can Stop America's Slide Into Socialism."

Senator DeMint currently serves on the Commerce, Science, and Transportation;
Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs;Foreign Relations; and Joint Economic committees.

Senator DeMint will join us for the top of the hour to discuss his new book, and other current political hot topics.

Jim DeMint has earned national acclaim for his work to end the system of earmarks, also referred to as the "congressional favor factory." Following the November elections in 2006, the senator stood up against big spenders in Congress and stopped over 10,000 wasteful pork projects. Famed Washington journalist Robert Novak called him a “hero.” Wall Street Journal editor Steve Moore said the senator’s actions saved Americans about $17 billion and called him the "taxpayers' greatest ally." In early 2007 DeMint also fought for commonsense immigration reform by leading the effort to defeat the amnesty bill and calling on government to first secure our borders, enforce the laws already passed, and streamline the legal immigration system.

In late 2006, he was elected as chairman of the Senate Steering Committee, which is comprised of the majority of Republican senators and works to advance conservative legislation. Last year, just as Ronald Reagan had done over 20 years earlier, DeMint delivered the keynote address to the nation’s largest gathering of conservative activists at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). He was recently ranked as the Senate’s most conservative member by National Journal and as the No. 1 senator voting for responsible tax and spending policies by the National Taxpayers Union. DeMint understands the greatness of a country is found in its people and values, not in its government.

Rounding out the interview hour will be guest, John C. Wohlstetter, a political commentator and the founder and editor of the blog “Letter from the Capitol” (www.letterfromthecapitol.com).  He is the senior fellow of technology and democracy at the Discovery Institute and a board member of the Hudson Institute.   He is the author of the book The Long War Ahead and the Short War Upon Us.  John has been published online and in print for, Town Hall, Washington Times, Human Events, The American Spectator, The Fenton Report, National Review Online and many other local and national outlets.

The interview will take place on Tuesday, July 28, 2009, at 6p PDT/9p EDT on African-American Conservatives' Blog Talk Radio Channel at: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/AACONS.
