Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission
Danielle Weatherby
Associate Professor
University of Arkansas School of Law
Weatherby is available to comment on Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission: “This case a classic clash between the First Amendment's Free Exercise Clause and the Fourteenth Amendment's Equal Protection Clause. The case provides an opportunity for the Court, in the interest of maintaining social order, to assert that First Amendment freedoms must bow to equal protection principles of the Fourteenth Amendment.”
Weatherby's recent work has appeared in Washington and Lee Law Review Online, Connecticut Law Review, Pepperdine Law Review, DePaul Law Review, and the New York University Review of Law & Social Change. Leading up to and following the U.S. Supreme Court's decision on the legality of same-sex marriage, her comments and analysis appeared in the Detroit News, Seattle Times, and Fortune magazine, for which she also has written guest op-ed pieces. She is based in Fayetteville, Ark.

Trump Plan to Recognize Jerusalem as Israel's Capital Triggers Warnings
Dr. Harlan Ullman
Killowen Group
“The recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital by President Trump is ill advised, ill timed, and almost certainly going to do more harm than good. The question to be answered is: What benefit (if any) is this meant to achieve?”
Based in Washington, D.C., Dr. Ullman is a former naval officer with combat commands in the Vietnam War and later in the Persian Gulf. He chairs The Killowen Group, which advises leaders of government and business at the highest levels, including presidential candidates here and abroad, through a brains-based approach to strategic thinking. Since the 1980s, Dr. Ullman has developed a reputation as a strategic thought leader and thinker in the public and private sectors. He is known for the doctrine of shock and awe and sits on advisory boards for the Supreme Allied Commander Europe and Commander US Forces Europe. Currently a senior advisor to the Atlantic Council and Business Executives for National Security, he was a Distinguished Senior Fellow at the National Defense University and professor of military strategy at the National War College. A student and practitioner of global economies, he writes often on the financial crises in UPI and other media, and sits on the boards of both private and public companies in the high-tech and financial services sectors.

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
