Author, political commentator and ‘BLEXIT” movement founder Candace Owens announced that she will be launching a new talk show called “Candace.”

“Candace” will be debuting March 19 on The Daily Wire in front of a studio audience in Nashville, TN.

Owens vows that her talk show will be a “space for conservatives to feel heard.”

“I guess the best way to describe it would be like a late-night talk show,” Owens told ITK. “It’s going to be funny. It’s going to be lighthearted. I think the most important adjective is it’s going to be hopeful.”

Owens said she does not want her audience to be limited to a targeted group.

“I think I’m definitely trying to broaden [the audience] beyond that. And I think I’ve always done that,” she said.

“I would say that my audience is any person that doesn’t feel heard or feels misunderstood,” Owens adds. “That would be my audience. And I think that that’s a lot of people right now.”

The launch of Owen’s talk show comes soon after teased a presidential run.

“I love America,” the “Blackout” author tweeted last month. “Thinking about running for President.”

On this Fourth of July we honor the last surviving Medal of Honor recipient from World War II. Marine veteran Hershel “Woody” Williams died Wednesday at 3:15 a.m. and was 98 years old. Williams died at the Huntington, West Virginia, Veterans Affairs hospital named after him, according to a statement from his foundation.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced Sunday that Williams will lie in honor at the U.S. Capitol.

The Marine Corps Times writes about the honorable veteran and his Medal:

Born in 1923 on a dairy farm in Quiet Dell, West Virginia, Williams was the youngest of 11 children, according to the Weirton, West Virginia, Daily Times.

Initially disqualified for being too short, Williams enlisted in the Marine Corps in 1943, according to his biography. The demolition sergeant landed on Iwo Jima on Feb. 21, 1945, with 1st Battalion, 21st Marine Regiment, 3rd Marine Division.

Two days later, on Feb. 23, 1945, he famously destroyed enemy emplacements with a flamethrower, going forward alone into machinegun fire, covered only by four riflemen.

His citation states, “he fought desperately for 4 hours under terrific enemy small-arms fire and repeatedly returned to his own lines to prepare demolition charges and obtain serviced flamethrowers,” before wiping out one enemy position after another.

On one occasion, he “daringly mounted a pillbox to insert the nozzle of his flamethrower through the air vent,” which killed all enemy occupants and silenced its gun.

Williams received the Medal of Honor from President Harry S. Truman at the White House in October 1945 for “conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty.”
