Meet Our Editorial Team

Meet The Team

19FortyFive’s editorial team consists of a talented 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 are most welcomed in our digital pages. 

Transparency Statement: In an effort to demonstrate our commitment to transparency, we are proud to share that 19FortyFive is entirely funded by online ads and has no other source of funding whatsoever. At the moment, 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, in an effort to be transparent, all of our regular contributors are presented with clear biographical information, and links to their professional credentials demonstrating their expertise are listed below
