Experts You Can Trust: Meet The 19FortyFive Team
Our expertise sets us apart and makes us an authority in national security, defense, and political issues you can trust.
We are proud to present a robust Editorial Team with decades of experience.
(19FortyFive Contributing Editor Retired LT. Colonel Daniel Davis on NBC News discussing his work with NBC News.)
And we can prove that expertise through our work and our staff’s real-world experience. 19FortyFive’s editorial team and regular contributors comprise a talented and trusted mix of foreign policy and national security experts, former policymakers, defense experts, seasoned journalists, economists, business experts, and much more.
And most important of all: we welcome a broad mix of thinkers to our mix. We favor no idea, no political ideology. Conservatives, progressives, and everything in-between is most welcomed on our digital pages.
To demonstrate our commitment to transparency, we are proud to share that 19FortyFive is entirely funded by online ads and has no other funding source whatsoever (that means ads on our website and videos on YouTube monetized through the YouTube Partner Program).
We do not accept or solicit any funding from foreign governments or individuals.
Check out below our current roster of talent and expertise that makes 19FortyFive the unique publication that it is.
Again, to be as transparent as possible, all of our regular contributors are presented with clear biographical information, and links to their professional credentials demonstrating their expertise are listed below.
