Former White House Spokesman Bob Weiner and Team’s Latest Op-Eds feature Restoring Assault Weapons Ban Would have Impacted LAST 15 Mass shootings that Killed 10+ each; National Parks Under Siege; Korea Talks Good Step; Down with Wall, Up with Port Security. Also, Latest TV/Radio


(Washington, DC)—Former White House spokesman Robert Weiner recently co-wrote four op-eds. The first, with Brad Star, in the Colorado Springs Gazette, contends the NRA should quit saying restoring the assault weapons ban wouldn’t make a difference, since all fifteen mass shootings of 10 or more since Columbine have been committed with assault weapons.

The second by Weiner and Kyle Fleck asserts national parks are under siege by budget reductions and privatization in the Trump administration, and appeared in LaborPress. Also in LaborPress and written by Weiner, Star and Ben Lasky: President Trump’s offer to meet with Kim Jong-Un is a good step to end the nuclear threat. Finally, Weiner co-wrote an op-ed with Lasky in the Youngstown Vindicator contending that port security is far more important than the Trump border wall in stopping drugs from entering the U.S.

All four op-eds were ranked by OpEdNews among the top four in the nation on day of publication.


At the National Press Club on April 26.Weiner also asked pointed questions to former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci (video below).


Weiner also made weekly appearances on “The Alan Nathan Show” on the Main Street Radio Network of 200 stations.
