Brian McGlinchey

brian-cspan-smallBrian McGlinchey made his debut on the national libertarian scene as the founder and director of, an information and activism hub for the movement that achieved the release of 28 pages linking Saudi Arabia to the 9/11 hijackers.

Operating completely on his own, McGlinchey provided original reporting and analysis on the issue, built a social media following and became a trusted expert tapped by journalists from top newspapers, networks and websites in the United States and around the world.

Though his most prominent work has been in the realm of national security, McGlinchey is passionate about a very wide range of issues, and he created Liberty Messaging to help advance libertarian ideals across all fronts.

Before launching Liberty Messaging, McGlinchey was a freelance copywriter for the financial services industry, with a clientele that included Aflac, Bank of America, New York Life, TD Bank and USAA. Earlier, he had an 11-year career at USAA, where he held a variety of executive roles in marketing, sales and product management and was one of the company’s primary liaisons with the media.

A former U.S Army officer who led a platoon on a deployment to Panama in the wake of the 1989 invasion, McGlinchey is a graduate of Bucknell University where he studied political science and history.
