I Never Debated in High School

Sometimes the most successful aren't "the experts"

I’ve been coaching debate since 1995. I’ve had literally thousands go through my programs and study my materials. I’m very proud of the champions who have succeeded under my coaching watch. But I have a secret to tell you: I never debated in high school.

I’m pictured in the center with Dr. Chris Leland (champion coach of CCU debate team) and Scott York (founding president of Stoa Debate League).

In case you missed the tit-for-tat last week about Sen. Warren’s attempt to impugn adversaries as racists, this video should explain its importance.

The Cruz/Sanders Debate on Obamacare

Let's see more displays of what debaters call "value clash"

Last night’s debate between Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders was exactly the kind of entertainment America needs. We need more “Debate Nights” like this: value debates that unapologetically clash between the two conflicting worldviews of today’s politics.

The Ship That Turned in 2016

How I Eventually Stumped for Trump

And a challenge to test your own understanding

“How can you support such a vile man?” is pretty much what my relatives and old friends have been asking me of my support for the Trump presidency. Early on, I was against Trump, but I eventually turned to cast my vote for him, support him, and even appreciate him. This post explains how I came to such conclusions.
