New Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf (D) addresses the crowd during his January 20th Inauguration in Harrisburg.

PITTSBURGH CABLE NEWS CHANNEL (January 23, 2015): “Profound leadership is capable of identifying and capturing key moments of time to inspire communities to noteworthy action, all for the sake of changing the course of history for the better. It takes a tone that elevates past rhetoric and wish lists – partisanship and apathy – broken trust, broken promises, and a broken past…Being a high-profile public speaker and being an orator are two different things. One communicates ideas – one inspires positive change.”

 

Political commentator Lenny McAllister (host, “NightTalk: Get to the Point”) uses his “Starting Point” commentary to start of the PCNC Friday evening show to discuss the challenges addressed by the new governor of Pennsylvania and the lame-duck President of the United States during their January 20 speeches.

Pittsburgh (December 19, 2014) – (Pittsburgh Cable News Channel)

“If 2014 has taught us anything – it’s that there’s been an awful lot that’s gone on – and there’s an awful lot still to do. Every New Year’s Eve is a chance to reflect upon the biggest events that impacted our lives over the past year. Every New Year’s Day is a chance to envision that, indeed, the best is yet to come. However, both are opportunities to remember that everyday is the best day to be historic, stay focused, have meaning, do good, and always believe. The lesson of 2014? Let’s not waste one day in 2015.

Pittsburgh (December 12, 2014) – (Pittsburgh Cable News Channel)

“Throughout 2014, we have heard about domestic tensions, social problems, international affairs and multiple causes for concern. We have seen people rise up with frustration, mistrust, aggression, and activism. Yet, there are some indications that suggest that things should be – theoretically – headed in the opposite direction. Where’s the disconnect?

“Are we willing to make this moment about police treatment in urban areas or understand that these tragedies are a symptom of the dual expectations found in the employment, economics, education, healthcare, and criminal justice systems of America?”

“Are we willing to make this moment about police treatment in urban areas or understand that these tragedies are a symptom of the dual expectations found in the employment, economics, education, healthcare, and criminal justice systems of America?”

PITTSBURGH (December 5, 2014) – (Pittsburgh Cable News Channel)

Generally, people are willing to champion popular civil rights rhetoric from the past yet few are willing to mustard true civil rights courage for today. Perhaps that trend is changing now – before more people are harassed, assaulted, and harmed by a system that calls us all equal on paper, but only on paper. The mighty pen can call us equal – but only a mighty people and a just people can make it so.”

Catch Lenny’s “Starting Point” as he gives his thoughts before talking with the Get To The Point Panel (joined by Dr. Jason Johnson, Jasiri X, and The Rev. Ricky Burgess) concerning the concerns and protests that continue to rise throughout the nation.
