Oregon Democrats’ Path to Destruction

Oregon Democrats’ Path to Destruction

Show Summary: Oregon Democrats aren’t exactly shy about overspending taxpayer dollars. Indeed, they seem quite proud of the devastating 29% tax increase they are in the middle of passing in 2019. So why do they want to take away voters’ ability to fight back?

This Week:  There are taxes and then there are extinction-level taxes. Because Oregon Democrats seems to be lurching down the path of destruction — unless they can be pulled back from the brink.

Oregon Democrats: You have too much of your money

The Far-Left Oregon Democrats seems to revel in their super-majority ability to create taxes on a whim. With no chance from the Republicans to be able to stop them. Worse, they seem to take great joy in thumbing their noses at the everyday Oregonians by mislabeling taxes and working hard to take away Oregonians’ ability to stand up in protest.

There is a lot under discussion this week on I Spy Radio. While we know it’s Memorial Day, this is exactly why all those sacrifices were made. So we can fight the battle on the Home Front.

Oregon Democrats: New and Artful Taxes

Democrats are finding new and creative ways to layer taxes on top of other taxes—all while saying but this is just a little percentage and won’t add up to much. Except, when you add all the layers together they add up to a lot.

For example, take the “tiny” .57% tax the Democrat supermajority just passed—the Corporate Activities Tax (more accurately, the Gross Sales Tax). However, this tiny unnoticeable tax (HB3427) will raise $2 billion in new taxes. Most importantly, this bill taxes the gross sales, not net profits. (Yes, this is a sales tax.) In other words, if your low-margin business spends $95 to make a product and you sell it for $100, you will be taxed on the full $100, not your $5 in profit.

Most importantly, that “tiny tax” is on top of any other taxes you’re already paying?

Remember: this gross receipts tax / shadow sales tax is a repeat of a ballot initiative Oregon voters rejected just two years ago. Pesky voters! You don’t get to decide. Oregon Democrats know better.

A Whopping 29% Increase in Taxes

"<yoastmark

But that’s just the beginning. In addition to the Gross Receipts Tax, here are a few of the tax hikes the Far-Left are supporting and are likely to pass:

  • Family Leave $1.5 billion
  • Carbon Tax $1.1 billion (at a minimum!)
  • Employee Assessment Tax $500 million
  • Medicaid Tax $335 million
  • Small Business Tax $130 million
  • Kicker Cut $108 million

All told, that is $5.673 billion in new taxes. Counted against the General Fund, that is a tax increase of almost 29%. Twenty-nine percent.

What’s even a more difficult to stomach is not a moment’s pause to even consider cutting spending. When is enough, enough?

Oregon Democrats Want to Silence Ballot Initiatives

And while the Far Left wants to cut the Kicker Tax and keep $108 million of it for government, here’s another kicker: they want make it harder for Oregonians to bring ballot initiatives to the voters. Enough is enough.

It’s time for action. We talk with Jeff Kropf, former Oregon legislator and current head of Oregon Capital Watch Foundation (OCWF.org.) about these staggering new taxes and a potential challenge to the Gross Receipts Tax.

Again. Because Oregon voters defeated this same tax just two years ago. But we can’t stop fighting. If we do, and if the Democrats in Salem get their way, this may truly be the last chance we have.

Tune in this week to hear what’s coming and what to do about it.

Air Dates: May 4 & 5, 2019 | Andi Buerger & Karen Kataline

This Week: We’ve all heard a baby’s laugh that makes the world light up.  At that moment, it feels as if we’re shielded from the darkness, a little bubble where the innocent are protected.

But where there is light there is also darkness and one of the darkest parts of that same world is human trafficking. Where innocence is destroyed. Smothered by men and women who turn innocence into a commodity.  Something to be sold, traded, and exploited. However, there is hope. 

Human Trafficking: It’s real and it’s in the U.S.

Infographic on human trafficking from Department of Homeland Security's Blue Campaign
An Infographic on human trafficking from Dept of Homeland Security

It seems impossible but even right here in the U.S., the land of the free, human trafficking—in all 50 states—not only exists but in some cases thrives.

Sadly, the numbers of those exploited are rising. According to the FBI, human trafficking is thought to be the 3rd largest criminal activity world-wide.  A world-wide epidemic of condemning children and adults to a lifetime of anger and hopelessness.  And it happens everywhere, rural and urban, to all ages, and to men, women, boys, and girls.

But this show is about help. And hope. Plus, it not only exposes what’s happening, but it will give you tools to help others get out from this nightmare.

Hope and Help: Beulah’s Place

So to understand more about human trafficking, we talk with Andi Buerger, the CEO and Founder of Beulah’s Place located in Redmond, Oregon.  Andi, a survivor of human trafficking herself, has created a support system for homeless children, including those who have been trapped in the human trafficking world.

Beulah’s Place focuses on getting these children food, clothing, and a place to sleep. They also find them supports that will start the healing process and lead to another life.  Listen to find out what her work has meant to so many youth who without her organization’s help felt trapped and unloved.

Get Help and Healing

Then we bring in Karen Kataline, a fellow talk-show host. Karen holds an MSW (masters of social work) and talks to us about the healing process that takes place as these young people start to learn a new norm.  She discusses what behaviors to look for, the types of counseling that have proven to help, and this very real problem of human trafficking in today’s society. 

To help a child or for more information:

Help Stop Human Trafficking

We’re bringing some light to this because it is our hope that those in our listening audience will become more aware of the issues. So we hope you will join us to learn some tools and find resources that you might be able to be in a position to help someone who truly needs it.

Recognize the signs of Human Trafficking
Recognizing key indicators of human trafficking is the first step in identifying victims and can help save a life. See the list of signs and indicators of human trafficking via the Department of Homeland Security

So why is this so important? Aside from the cruelty, stopping human trafficking can have long-term impact. Because human trafficking and abuse causes generational problems to fester in our society.  Left alone the rage, self-hate, confusion, and feelings of betrayal these children and adults experience will impact our future for generations to come.  Child abuse is no longer something we can turn our backs on. Perpetrators have only become more bold and more aggressive. We cannot ignore this problem any longer.

You can help break the cycle. You can be someone’s answer to prayer. Please tune in and help spread the word.

Additional Information & Resources on Human Trafficking

Resources on Human Trafficking via U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS)

The Dept. of Homeland Security is actively fighting human trafficking and trying to raise awareness under the banner of The Blue Campaign. They have a tremendous amount of resources and places to get help.

Facts and Figures

  • According to some estimates, approximately 80% of trafficking involves sexual exploitation, and 19% involves labor exploitation (Dosomething.org)
  • 40 percent of U.S. human trafficking happens in the Southeast
  • Human Trafficking Is an Epidemic in the U.S. It’s Also Big Business (via Fortune, April 14, 2019)
    • “Human trafficking is estimated to bring in global profits of about $150 billion a year—$99 billion from sexual exploitation, according to the International Labor Organization. Nearly 9,000 cases in the U.S. were reported to the National Human Trafficking Hotline and BeFree Textline in 2017—a 13% increase from the prior year, according to the Polaris Project. But this data is incomplete, as cases are severely underreported.”
    • “Some of the biggest factors that lead vulnerable children to become vulnerable adults are poverty, homelessness, abuse at home, the foster system, and glamorization of the sex industry, what is essentially a “pipeline of vulnerability,” said Dr. Sharon Cooper, founder and CEO of Developmental and Forensic Pediatrics.”
    • “While prostitution is defined as the exchange of sex for money, drugs, or influence between two consenting adults—where consent can be given—human trafficking means there is third-party control.”

Take Action Briefing

What: Human trafficking sounds like something out of a past century. Or out of some third world country. But it’s very real — 10-20 million victims in the world and 10s of thousands, perhaps as high as 200,000 victims right here in the U.S.
Who: Everyone. Human trafficking affects both genders, all ages, all walks of life, and everywhere. It happens in inner cities, suburbs, and rural areas. Poor, middle class, wealthy.
How: Take action to learn the signs of human trafficking. If you’re a past victim, seek help. If you’re a victim (or know someone who might be) there is help.
When: Now!
Why: Human trafficking is a horrific abuse. Stopping human trafficking can prevent generations of abuse because unless victims get help to heal their past, they can and often do take it out on the next generation.

Air Dates: Apr 27 & 28, 2019 | Ethan Blevins

This Week: It’s spring with farmers preparing fields, rains soaking our rich soils, and forests turning green.  Our skies are clear from heavy smoke and the air is fresh.  But August is coming when things are far more dry, brown, and dusty.

Oregon’s Forests: A Victim of Leftist Policies

Leftist policies - A product of the socialist brain of a liberalBelieve it or not, August in Oregon used to be free of major forest fires for decades but why isn’t it now?  Why have massive fires become a way of life for the summer landscape in Oregon, California, and the rest of the West?

We’ll talk about this with Dr. Bob Zybach, someone who studied Oregon’s history of forest fires for his dissertation and is an avid proponent for bringing back practical and realistic forest management policies to Oregon. A state that should be leading the way on setting proper forest management polices. Except we’re too concerned that environmentalists will froth at the mouth over policies that actually acknowledge mankind is part of the environment. But we digress.

Dr. Zybach is also a frequent guest on I Spy Radio. Dr. Bob is back on to take us through what should be happening with our forests during spring time as summer is fast approaching. We know that farmers and ranchers are busy during this time of year preparing for the growing season, so should foresters.

Are We Preparing Scientists or Activists?

We hear so much about preparing today’s youth for the challenges of tomorrow. So what exactly is the curriculum currently being taught in today’s forestry classes? And how well prepared are young foresters when they graduate?

Don’t miss the updates on the Elliott State Forest that is supposed to be making the state millions. Yes. The Elliott State Forest is supposed to generate money. Not cost money. Can it?  Yes.  Is it?  You’ll hear about that and what the future may bring for this vital state resource and how it could pave the way for other states. If they just listen.

Pacific Legal: Fighting Leftist Policies

But first up: Ethan Blevins. Mr. Blevins is an attorney with Pacific Legal Foundation. This is a group that we’ve been following for a long time. No, we’re not stalkers. But this our first time to have them on I Spy Radio.  Pacific Legal Foundation has been growing leaps and bounds and are now all across America, working to hold the government accountable. Just our kind of group.

Oregon’s New Rent Control: Ignoring Science AND Economics

Mr. Blevins litigates cases involving the First Amendment, property rights, school choice, and the separation of powers.  So we talk to him about the new rent control Oregon’s legislature just passed and why its policies will end up raising costs of living—the exact opposite of what they propose to do.

Why? Because the policy completely ignores one of the most basic elements of economics. Not one of those fancy a computer models that predict global cooling—wait, no, warming, er, no, change!—but from long-tested and proven economic science.  But what do we know?

And don’t miss our conversation with Mr. Blevin about Oregon’s supermajority and the potential abuse of powers that come with it. Yes, the Democrats have a 3/5ths supermajority in the House and Senate and yes they hold the governorship. But there’s still hope. And from a surprising source. And it’s why Republicans can’t and shouldn’t give up.

This Week: Despite no shortage of political news this week, we are taking a break from it all to celebrate Easter.  But this week, Friday at sundown, was also Passover. Did you know that the symbolism within Passover’s sacred meal, the Seder Feast, point to Jesus as the Messiah? Our guest thinks so. We’re pleased to welcome for the first time to our show Dan Sered, COO of Jews for Jesus on the symbolism of Jesus in the Passover. 

Passover Meal: The Origins of Communion

As Christians, we all know about Communion. It’s a meal many Christians celebrate monthly or even weekly. But how much do you really know about Passover, which is the origin for Communion?

As the name implies, Jews for Jesus is an organization of Jews who believe that Jesus was and is the Messiah. We invite Dan on to walk us through the Passover meal, how it’s celebrated and the many deep traditions within the highly structured and ordered Seder meal.

For thousands of years, Jews embraced the prophecies of the Old Testament that would reveal the Messiah. But as you’ll hear, so much of the Passover meal itself—this most sacred meal so central to Judaism—actually symbolize and point to the very Messiah they’ve rejected. Jesus. You’ll also hear the struggle many Jews go through when (as other Jews see it) they “leave” the faith.

Symbolism of Jesus in the Passover

Join us to hear the traditions and symbolism of this sacred meal. We reflect on the symbolism, its ties to Christianity, and how the routine and order taken throughout Passover represent God has laid out a plan and process for our life and salvation.

Your next Communion won’t be the same. 

As we start this very holiest of celebrations, we wish you all a very wonderful Easter weekend!

Air Dates: Apr 13 & 14, 2019 | George Papadopoulos & Burgess Owens

This Week: There were two topics in the news this week that have turned the tables on the Far-Left—especially those lurking in the Deep State.  Our new attorney general gave Congressional testimony in which he said that, yes, there was spying on the Trump campaign and it’s worrisome. We agree—it should be worrisome. To all Americans!

Historic Turning Point?

Are we seeing a historic turning point? When the Deep State is now on the run? When the tides are turning?

Aside from Barr announcing that the FBI did spy on Trump, at another Congressional hearing, the brilliant, Black conservative, Candace Owens of Turning Point USA, scorched the earth on two House Democrats. She absolutely destroyed them. First they tried (and failed miserably) to trap her by misrepresenting an earlier statement of hers. Then they proved they weren’t even listening. Candace devastated the two Far-Left Congressmen so much that even Google and YouTube put video clips of her dressing them down on “restricted” mode in a blatantly biased attempt to prevent young people from watching it.

In both instances, the tables turned on the far-left and in both cases the actions directly challenged the Far-Left’s beliefs and anti-American narratives.

After all that we’ve seen unravel—from AG Barr telling the truth about the FBI spying on Trump to Democrat Congressmen getting caught trying to belittle a Black conservative—we are at the beginning stages of a revolution.

The Next Black Revolution: Walk Away

Like Candace Owens, young Blacks are standing up for their rights. Not as angry militants, ready to tear society apart.  They are standing up to be treated with the dignity and respect given to all men and women who are part of everyday America. People who want to see our country succeed.

And our guest, Burgess Owens, explains how Candace not only stood up to these Congressional members as a young, conservative, Black woman no longer to be an object to control but as a person to be respected.

Burgess Owen’s books: Liberalism or How to turn Good Men into Whiners, Weenies, and Wimps and his latest book – Why I Stand: From Freedom to the Killing Fields of Socialism

Also, what about “reparations”? Are they catching on in the Black community? Or are Blacks seeing it as more pandering? And what about rappers like Nipsey Hussle? Nipsey was gunned down after trying to help his community have better relations with the police. Are we seeing the beginning of a revolution here, too? Blacks turning their backs on the narrative of hating police?

Could it be? Are Black Americans beginning to wake up to Leftist policies that have hurt rather than helped?

George Papadopoulos: What Really Happened

But before we talk with Burgess, we go in-depth with George Papadopoulos. First, George walks us through his horrifying time of being a target of the Deep State. The FBI tried to spy on and entrap both him and President Trump. You’ll be shocked to hear the depths to which they tried to manipulate and set him up. Then he goes on to name names.

Check out George Papadopoulos’ new book, Deep State Target: How I got caught in the Crosshairs of the Plot to Bring Down President Trump

On this show, you will hear new information on the lies they were willing to tell the press in hopes of destroying George and by extension Trump. In true I Spy Radio fashion, we go beyond the sound bites and to get you what the media has been misrepresenting.  Listen to find out how deeply the FBI were willing to go with their deceptions and who George thinks will end up with indictments. 

It’s an ugly time in our Republic but thanks to these unsung heroes, like George Papadopoulos, Candace Owens, and Burgess Owens, our country is on a path to recovery. Be part of that Revolution. This is don’t-miss-it radio!

Key questions George Papadopoulos wants answered:

Who was Joseph Mifsud? Who was his handler at the FBI? Did Obama know? And who is the mysterious Arvinder Sambei? Is she the next link to the spying operation in the FBI?

Show Summary: This week we explore socialism’s ties to Islam. Are the two new Muslim Congresswomen jihadists? We get answers form a former jihadist.

Original Air Dates: March 9 & 10, 2019 | Kamal Saleem

This week: In the first of a two-part show, we open our discussion with Kamal Saleem, about the ties between socialism and Islam. Kamal is a former cultural jihadist who converted to Christianity after he’d come to America to destroy it from withing. This week, our focus is: Are there jihadists in Congress?

There are a lot of similarities between the two political philosophies (and, yes, Islam is a political ideology). They both believe in the supremacy of their own ideology. They both believe in collectivism. They both believe in killing the opposition. But it doesn’t stop there.

Our talk with Kamal takes some interesting and surprising turns.

We talk with him about hte two newly elected Congresswomen who are both Muslims. Ilhan Omar has received the bulk of the attention with her anti-Semetic tweets but Rashid Talib is every bit as radical. Both are socialists.

In past I Spy Radio shows, we’ve wondered about the two ideologies—socialism and Islam. They are very similar in their world view (except on societal issues). Both use similar tactics and strategies to further their goals. Lying, obfuscation. Promising one thing and delivering another. Dividing society into groups and making them hate one another. Both socialism and Islam target the same segments of society—the disaffected and disgruntled.

Did you know where Hitler got his ideas on how to cope with “the Jewish problem”?

Tune in to hear the surprising ties between socialism and Islam— from a former cultural jihadist’s experience and viewpoint.

On Some Issues, the Younger Generation NOT in Step with the Left

Show Summary: The mainstream media and Leftists like AOC think they have the youth in their back pocket. But not on everything.

Original Air Dates: Mar. 23 & 24, 2019 | Kristan Hawkins & James Hirsen

While Alexandria Ocasio-Cortex thinks she has the youth on her side and that all of them can’t wait to be dyed-in-the-wool socialists, there are certain issues where today’s youth are most definitely not in lockstep with the Left. This is especially true for abortion.

Today’s Youth on Abortion: The Sonogram Generation

In fact, the “sonogram generation” is showing signs of disdain and disgust at the Far Left’s (and Democrat leadership) agenda of the coldest and most brutal abortion issue to date: so-called 4th term abortions. In other words, infanticide of children who survived an abortion. This generation grew up with Mom bringing home sonograms of baby brother or sister.  And even though their first vision of their little sibling was in black and white and somewhat fuzzy, they identified that early, early pregnancy as a live baby.  Something to be excited about, not kill.

So this week’s show we have some good news.

First up, we talk with the President of Students for Life, Kristan Hawkins, who talked to us as she waited outside the White House for President Trump’s signing ceremony of an Executive Order to protect free speech on campuses. Kristan was in attendance because one of her chapter presidents was to present what her experience has been on campus as a young conservative.  We discussed with Kristan about the new pro-life movie Unplanned, in theaters starting March 29th.  It’s a story about a friend of Kristan’s who was a Planned Parenthood counselor until the day she actually witnessed the horror of an abortion—a baby who had survived the abortion and was fighting for its life.

There is also some terrific news on the legal front. We discuss the new decisions in the appellate courts that now allow Ohio and Texas to defund Planned Parenthood and what these decisions mean for the pro-life movement. And how these precedents will open the door to other states defunding Planned Parenthood.

James Hirsen: Hollywood’s take on Unplanned & the College Entrance Scandal

Next up is bestselling author, James Hirsen that gives us Hollywood’s take on Unplanned and the R rating that was given to a film without language, violence, or sexuality. A film kids now can’t go to see without their parents’ permission—and yet in many states they can get an abortion without their consent.

Hirsen also gives us the inside-Hollywood view of the college scam and how children of actors cheated their way into college. We get his thoughts (as a former attorney) on the Mueller investigation.

Hirsen: What on Earth is Going on over at Fox News?

James Hirsen has also been a contributor for Fox News. With the suspension of Judge Jeanine for having an opinion on her opinion show and the hiring of Donna Brazile, what is going on at Fox?  Don’t miss his take on what’s happening with Fox News’s swing left and why.

Unplanned – The Movie

A reminder that the movie, Unplanned opens this Friday, March 23. Since Hollywood decided to make it Rated R, so kids under 17 can’t get in, it’s a perfect opportunity to go take a whole bunch of kids with you. It will be a chance to talk about — and show them the sancitity of human life. And its irreplaceability.

I hope you will make time to go on opening weekend. Bec that’s the weekend the production studio makes most of their money.

This generation doesn’t lean toward socialism because of a few political commercials. They lean that way because of the content of shows they watch. One day, wealthy conservatives will wake up to that.

UFOs vs Trump-Russia Collusion

UFOs vs Trump-Russia Collusion

Show Summary: What do UFOs and the Trump-Russia collusion narrative have in common? No evidence of collusion is now considered evidence of collusion. And even then, there is more evidence of UFOs than there is of Trump-Russia “collusion.” We talk with CIA whistleblower, John Kiriakou, about the state of the Justice Department.

Air Dates: Feb. 2nd & 3rd, 2019 | John Kiriakou

This last week, CNN, MSNBC, and other “mainstream media” outlets actually declared that Trump-Russia collusion was now settled. Because the lack of evidence for Trump-Russia collusion must mean that Trump really is a Russian spy.

Yes. No evidence is now evidence.

Although, strangely enough, so far there is more evidence for actual UFOs than there is evidence for actual Trump-Russia collusion.

Media Desperation over Trump-Russia Collusion Narrative Falling Apart

While it’s laughable that the dinosaur media now thinks that the lack of evidence is somehow now evidence of Trump-Russia collusion, the rest of us aren’t laughing. Think about it. Now just the mere accusation of a crime is enough for a conviction. If we think you did it, you must have.

But it’s worse than that.

Mueller’s Trump-Russia Collusion Probe

While the media can make itself a joke, they can’t actually put anyone in jail. But a corrupt “justice” system can. And that’s the danger here. A justice system is only as just as the people in it. Comey, Mueller, Rosenstein—would you trust them to be fair and unbiased? What about John Brennan? Or Clapper?

The thing all those guys have in common is that each of them have openly lied to Congressional investigators. So why aren’t any of them in jail. Isn’t that what we do nowadays? Jail people who lied to or misled investigators? Just ask General Flynn, George Papadopalous, Carter Page — or our guest this week: John Kiriakou.

John Kiriakou

John is very familiar with how the FBI operates; setting up the people they’re investigating. In fact, he’s previously said on I Spy Radio that the joke at the CIA was that the FBI couldn’t get a conviction without setting up their victim. Kiriakou, like others swept up in the Mueller probe, was bankrupted into accepting a guilty plea, despite being cleared by the FBI of any wrongdoing.

Don’t miss John Kiriakou’s latest book: Doing Time Like a Spy

We talk with John about the state of the Mueller probe (and we mean probe in the best UFO sense) and what it says about the Justice Department.

We also discuss some deeply troubling aspects of our Justice System that ought to be worrying everyone. Including—and perhaps especially—Democrats.

Yes, Democrats. Democrats should be deeply troubled about the Mueller probe.

The Real Problem with the Mueller Probe

The problem with the Trump-Russia collusion Mueller probe is straightforward. It’s an abuse of power to pursue your political opponents. John Kiriakou knows a lot about being a helpless target of an all-powerful federal government that is hell-bent on a conviction. John Brennan demanded Obama jail him, and he did — by bankrupting Kiriakou until he had no choice but to plead guilty.

It’s the abuse of power Democrats need to worry about. Why? Because if they permit the Mueller probe to continue despite the fact there is no evidence, then they are helping to set the legal precedent for Republicans to “investigate” a future Democrat president.

This ought to be the kind of thing that unites Americans. Against their government. This is the kind of abuse of power our forefathers fought for in the American Revolution.

Tune in this week to hear more about why Americans, all Americans, need to start coming together and how that can begin to restore trust in our own government.
