    Concerned or confused about Common Core? Is it a communist plot? Will it save education?

  • How do you Commit Theft without Stealing?

    How do you commit theft without stealing? You make it legal. But to do that, you need to pass a law or create administrative rules to give your agency legal "permission" to take what you want. And to create those laws or rules, you need to provide the justification for it -- hence, "best available science."

    Tune in to hear how the State of Oregon is legalizing the theft of land in the Klamath and how it uses bad science to do so. This is a show every farmer, rancher, and logger needs to listen to.

  • No Longer About the Birds and Bees, It’s Full Indoctrination

    Our schools have become battlegrounds as the left uses state and federal policy to push their version of "morality" and "acceptance", meaning their ethics. No longer are schools about math or science, now it's about full-on indoctrination. Tune in to hear about the army of indoctrinators the left has assembled -- and how you can beat them.

  • Defending America, Home and Abroad

    This week, we're talking about the troubling acceptance by Americans of their constantly eroding liberty. We also talk about the men and women of the SEALs who fight to give us those liberties.

    Freedom is never free. But an autographed copy of bestselling author, Scott McEwen's book is. Tune in for details! Or see our Facebook page.

  • The Constant Battle for Freedom

    Freedom is never cheap and it is never guaranteed. We saw this play out on our TV sets this last week with Ukrainian freedom fighters rising up to overthrow their dictator. But what's next? And what led to this? And how are events in the US precursors to uprisings? And more importantly, how do we prevent it?

  • Here, Deal with It

    Imagine being handed a bunch of rules and regulations, the vast majority of which you had zero input into, and being told to just go deal with it.

    Welcome to the life of a county commissioner, who have to deal with not only their own issues but are handed things to implement from both federal and state governments. Smaller government, anyone?

  • End of Abortion in this Lifetime?

    The Reagan Revolution was more than an economic one. It was a moral one too. And one area where he hoped to one day make an impact was abortion. Maybe it wasn't left to him, but to the next generation -- and there are some fascinating recent developments, legal and societal, that give hope to ending abortion in this lifetime.

  • You're in the Union Now

    When President Obama proposed in his State of the Union address a new investment tool, MyRA's, this got our antennae up. Because it mirrors, once again, what it already underway here in Oregon.

    And we all know by now (or you should!) that massive government programs all start with a study. Except don't think you or your money is safe.

  • Mysterious Medicaid Qualifiers & Ethics Issues Doctors Face under Obamacare

    Like Pandora's box, Obamacare has been a plague of troubles unleashed on the American people and it seems every day more troubles are revealed. Except unlike Pandora's box, there doesn't to be any Hope left in the box (except perhaps doing away with it entirely).

    We talk with insurance expert Lisa Lettenmaier and with OR Senate candidate Monica Wehby on whether there's any hope. And we're also joined by Dr. Ben Carson, who made headlines when he blew away Obamacare at last year's National Prayer Breakfast.

  • Al Qaeda is Not Dead -- with John Rosenthal (Week of Jan 25 2014)

    Despite the best efforts of the Obama administration to pretend al Qaeda is dead, it most certainly is not. But it is also not the same organization that plotted the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks on September 11, 2001.

    So where are they now? What are they now? Tune in and hear how bad decisions based on bad information (or politically driven, predetermined policy stances) have led to a far different and perhaps more formidable organization.

  • Worried about Common Core? (Week of Jan 18, 2014)

    Common Core has been and continues to be in the news, with new examples arising every day about some of the nonsense being pushed by agenda-driven bureaucrats who see other people's children as somehow theirs to indoctrinate.  It becomes less about education and more about creating a pattern of thinking.

    All this, while schools continue to receive failing grades that have little or nothing to do with how much money is being spent on them.

  • Policy and You - Environmental Policies Run Amok

    As I Spy Radio starts the New Year, we want to bring policy discussions from a theoretical level to a more concrete level. People are becoming more aware of policy, but what do they mean? To me, to my neighbors, to my community. This year, we'll not only be continuing our analysis but will be adding more stories about the personal impact of state and federal policies.

    And we start the year with a focus on the EPA and how one county in Oregon has been strangled by well-intended environmental policies.

  • Global Warming Falling Apart?

    Why would the government want to destroy industries? Why are our public lands anything but public, locking up access to our natural resources?

    This week on the I Spy Radio Show, we continue our on-going series with Dr. Tim Ball, a retired climatologist who the far-left environmentalist despise for his efforts to expose their fraud.

  • The Constitutional Response to Power Grabs

    All this week, it has been one example after another of exactly what our founding fathers warned against: the inclination of big government to continue to grow, to continue to accumulate power, and, once they have power, they don't give it up willingly. 

    With guest Mike Farris, of Citizens for Self-Governance -- a Constitutional scholar and the founder of the Home-Schooling Legal Defense Association.
