This Week: It’s dicey in the US, no two ways to about it. And it’s hard to know what or whom to trust. Like recent reports came to light that the small group scientists behind the much-vaunted study—that the White House and governments all around the world relied on to make drastic, economy-altering decisions that they did—may have drastically overstated the numbers.

Corona Virus Numbers: Were they Way off?

British scientist Neil Ferguson, using a computer model, had predicted 2.2 million Americans and more than half a million Brits would be killed. Now he and his team are backtracking on their modeling numbers.

During testimony to the U.K’s parliament, he now predicts U.K. deaths from the disease will not exceed 20,000, and could be much lower. That means, their initial estimates were 25 times higher than they should have been.

This comes as Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House coronavirus response coordinator, reportedly said the administration was particularly focused on his report.  The doctor now has walked back those predictions and clearly stated that the actual numbers of those infected by the virus do not match the computer models (because they’re much lower).

Corona Virus Bailout Passes

The economic and public health policies we’re seeing enacted now have been based recommendations from advisers who used those overstated numbers, which has shut the American economy down.

Did Donald Trump just use the Corona Virus Bailout to gain control of The Fed…? Check this out from Yahoo News

As the stocks tanked, Trump has pushed back with a stimulus package to get cash into the hands of American workers who have been laid off. Or have lost their jobs.  Small businesses will have loans and grants available to keep them afloat as Trump pushes to get new policies in place for Americans to go back to work.

Corona Virus Bailout: Did they Get it (Mostly) Right?

But will the Corona virus bailout bill work? To get Americans – and America – back to work?

We welcome back Chief Economist for the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), Jonathan Williams, to analyze what’s been happening, and what’s likely to happen.

Read Jonathan’s Op-Ed in The Hill that he mentioned on the show – “A Free-Market Approach to Reviving the Economy Amid COVID-19 Distress

Jonathan—who, like ALEC, believes in smaller government and fewer regulations—walks us through the details and impacts of this massive aid package. You’ll come away with a broader understanding of what’s happening, why smaller government consistently works, and, we hope, we’ll soothe some nerves and calm some fear.  We discuss what the package will be doing, what it could do, and also some problems still on the horizon, especially for states that may have hastily sold their economic souls based on bad numbers.

Another very full show—including some myth busting of Leftist anti-business policies that you won’t want to miss.

Air Dates: Mar. 21 & 22, 2020 | James Hirsen & Angelita Sanchez

This Week: As much of America starts slowing down, self-quarantining, or through social distancing, we’ve had to rely on the very media that many have wondered if they will ever be truthful, as we assess our way through this challenge. Difficult times for sure.

Challenges that we never imagined a few weeks ago, after a big win to stop Oregon’s cap and trade bill. Only to end up faced with corona virus, which many states’ governors have used to shut down the economy in their states.

To get a handle on these issues we talk to two people: attorney, James Hirsen, who specializes in media psychology, and Timber Unity’s spokesperson, and small business owner, Angelita Sanchez.

Media’s Corona Virus Panic-Mongering

To help the media, here's a handy visual aid, showing where corona virus didn't start
To help the media, here’s a handy visual aid, showing where corona virus didn’t start

First up is James Hirsen, offering his insights on the media’s irresponsibility on their reporting—or misreporting. And what a shame that truly is. President Trump fights to correct problems that Americans are facing—while having to fight off both media and Democrats attacks every step of the way. Apparently, the constant fight the last three years has given him the experience he needed to deal with Corona Virus.

It’s bad enough when the media lies or pushes outright hoaxes, but its perhaps even worse when many times the good news from the president, goes completely unreported.  Instead the, media spends their energy sensationalizing the news, the very information we try to depend on to try to make good decisions for our businesses and families.

 

Timber Unity: How are Truckers Dealing with Corona Virus?

Then up next, Angelita Sanchez who takes a more personalized approach as she helps us to understand what our nation’s truckers are experiencing; many of whom are small-businesses owners.

Tune in to hear what this vital industry is faced with, as vendors they depend on for work are shut down by government.  She not only gives us insights into the big challenges, and her own personal struggles. Angelita was fortunate enough to join a select number of small business owners for a group telephone call with the President and White House staff to hear how he’s going to help keep small businesses whole.  The aid package includes cash help and some loans for disaster help.  She says it gave her hope. What she shares will give you hope too.

Lots of information packed into an hour that you don’t want to miss.

A Lifeboat of Sanity in a Sea of Panic | Corona Virus and the Markets

A Lifeboat of Sanity in a Sea of Panic | Corona Virus and the Markets

Show Summary: There’s a lot of panic about the Corona Virus. Don’t give into panic. Good information kills panic, and we’ve got some for you. Including some really good news.

Original Air Dates: Mar, 14 & 15, 2020 | Kevin Freeman

This Week: There’s been a huge selloff on the stock market this past week due in large part over panic and concern about the Corona virus. How is it that, with little data, and over 70,000 people who have already recovered, people, governments, and financial markets are responding with borderline hysteria?

As our host, Mark Anderson, has so aptly quoted many times during the financial hysteria, is the line from It’s a Wonderful Life. It’s where there’s a run on the local savings and loan with all the town folk panicking when Jimmy Stewart’s character, George Baily says, “Potter isn’t selling. Potter’s buying!”

Potters, or their modern-day equivalents  like George Soros—are always happy to take advantage of hysteria in the markets.

Don’t give in to it.

Corona Virus Panic and the Stock Markets

It’s amazing. To watch Twitter or Facebook, it’s almost as if people want to panic. They spread hysterical news coverage. But don’t want to hear good news. And actual good news is lost in the maelstrom of panic.

For example, here’s some good news you didn’t hear in the mainstream media: there is already a vaccine for the Corona Virus. Yes. Earlier this week, we got word that a Pentagon-funded company already has the vaccine, will be ready to go as soon as the FDA approves, and can make up to 10 million doses daily in their plant alone. And, the really amazing thing is that they managed to develop it a mere 20 days after receiving the virus’s genetic sequence. This isn’t some incredible virus that will wipe us out if they can develop a vaccine in only 20 days.  (Here, read the story for yourself.) And what’s been the response?  Nothing, but more panic.

And, of course, there’s been no place more prone to Corona Virus panic than the stock markets.

Sorting out the Corona Virus Panic

Dow pops 1,985 points as Trump enlists Google, Walmart in coronavirus fight. Lou Dobbs, who has been panicky, got an autographed copy.

So we invited Kevin Freeman to the show, a world-renowned expert on financial terrorism and economic warfare, to discuss just what it is we’re seeing in the current market sell off, and why.

Kevin, whose Economic War Room show can been seen on The Blaze TV, gives us insights on not only the problems, but also the strength of the US economy.  He talks about Trump’s strategies, and why it’s okay to stop the panic and feel good about our nations, financial position, and outlook.

Good News! Johns Hopkins, which has the “official” Corona Virus Map, also ranks America as the #1 country in the world for preparedness and being able to handle the Corona Virus

When it comes to the Corona Virus, it’s Simple: Don’t Panic

Worried about CoronaVirus? Don’t be. It’s okay to be concerned, but don’t fall into worry. And definitely don’t give in to panic.

That said, while you may not be panicked, be aware that others may be panicked. Here’s some things to do:

Corona Virus / CoVid19 Preventative Measures

  • Wash your hands! We can’t stress this enough. Simple hot water and soap kill the Corona Virus. Alcohol wipes and hand sanitizer is great but there’s a reason. Here’s why: Hot water and soap It turns out viruses like Covid19 have a “skin” of fat. Hot water + soap breaks down the fat, effectively popping the balloon, and the whole thing falls apart like a house of cards. Good thread explaining it, here.

Signs & Symptoms of Corona Virus

The first thing to do is: not panic. But if you think you might have COVID19, here are some signs and symptoms:

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), symptoms of common human Corona viruses are:

  • runny nose, sore throat, headache, fever, cough, and a general feeling of being unwell.
  • Human Corona viruses can sometimes cause lower-respiratory tract illnesses, such as pneumonia or bronchitis. These symptoms are more common in people with cardiopulmonary disease, people with weakened immune systems, infants, and older adults.

Some other Corona Virus / COVID19 tips from the CDC and Johns Hopkins:

  • Stock up – Have 14 days of food and supplies on hand in case you’re quarantined. You may not be sick. Your family may not be sick. But some panic-stricken politicians, desperate to show they’re doing something are shutting down some areas. And 14 days is the norm. 
  • Did we mention wash your hands and face with hot water and soap? Heat  and good ol’ soap dissolves the fatty “skin” of the virus.
  • Avoid crowds; practice “social distancing”. Maybe if you’re a church leader, now is a good time to put a live stream on your church website so people can still attend, even if they’re not in the building. It could be a real opportunity to expand your audience and your reach.

Always look for opportunities!

Warning: More CoVid19 Panic is on the Way

We want to warn you. in the next couple of weeks, you will see another round of media-induced panic. Why? As more Corona Virus test kits hit the market, 1,000s or 10s of 1,000s of people will all  “suddenly” have the virus. Just like that,

The Fight is On: Oregon Democrats Go Full-Blown Tyranny

Show Summary: Oregon Democrats like democracy — until they don’t get their way. At which point they go full-blown Socialist and want to fine, or even jail, their political opponents. It’s time to fight back against the tyranny of one-party rule in Salem.

Original Air Dates: Feb 29 & Mar 1, 2020 | Kevin Hoar, ORP Communications Director

This Week: Politics isn’t easy and sometimes causes people to become warriors when they would rather be negotiators.  But in Oregon’s case, it is impossible to negotiate with the Oregon Democrat super-majority which has decided Republicans have no rights. To object, complain, or offer suggestions.

Oregon Democrats: Full-Blown Socialism

The reality is, elected Democrats don’t want Republican input. They just want Republican bodies in the House or Senate so the Oregon Democrats can pass whatever they want.

So the Republicans, unwelcome and unnecessary (other than being a warm body) have taken the only step left to them: to walk out and deny Democrats a quorum.

Now, in return, Oregon Democrats have taken the extreme step to issue subpoenas to demand that Republicans return.

Oregon Republicans Doing their Job

Democrats are now trying to claim Republicans aren’t “doing their job.” But Republicans are doing their job. Because they were elected to represent their constituents, who are opposed to cap and trade. It is not the Republican’s job to let Democrats pass whatever they want.

The rights the minority party, Oregon’s Republicans, are exercising is to use any legal means possible, to stay true to their oath in office to stand up for their constituents.  It is the Republicans’ job to represent those who vote them in—and protect them against a Democrat agenda that will change Oregon for decades.

This is what the tyranny of the majority looks like. Imagine the damage they will do if they get any more power. It must stop.

The ORP: Oregon Republican Party

That’s why our show this week is so very important with so much at stake.  This week our guest is Kevin Hoar, Communications Director of the ORP.  The show comes on the heels of Thursday night’s vote for the House Democrats to issue subpoenas’ to drag the House Republicans back to session.

And the elected Oregon Democrats repeatedly demonstrated in this session they cannot be trusted with power. Republicans need to remove them from office.

It’s time to come forward, step up, and get involved.  It’s not enough to just be a part of Timber Unity. So it’s time to gear up and take action. There is only one party now that is standing up for rural Oregonians. There is only one party standing up for everyday Oregonians. Or for Oregonians’ businesses. And it’s most definitely not the Democrats.

Fight Back. Get Involved

It is time to end one-party rule in Oregon. To do that, Republicans need to take back at least enough seats to break the super-majority. Even better, take back at least one of the chambers, perhaps even both. And you can help.

We’ll introduce you to the Oregon Republican Party, what they do. We talk about how to get involved. How you can get involved in campaigns, support the Republican efforts. Or even run for office yourself. And we also talk about some of what’s going on in the background, of Democrats actions, that is going under reported.

Because this is the year for people to get engaged. And fight back and stand up against the Democrat agenda of socialism and tyranny as they try to politically strangle good people into saying nothing.

Show Summary: 2020 marks the beginning of I Spy Radio’s tenth year on the air. This week, something a little different: the producer speaks. Our 2019 year in review and a 2020 preview. Was 2019 the beginning of the end of socialism?

Original Air Dates: Jan. 4th & 5th, 2020 | Karla Davenport, I Spy Radio producer

This Week:  The end of 2019 and birth of 2020 marks the beginning of I Spy’s 10th year on air.  After a decade of airing shows that we hope have been informative and, at times, entertaining we are trying something different.  Having both Mark and me on air to discuss the issues.

So for this week’s show, we’re going to be doing a year in review AND a year in preview.

Year in Review. 2019: The rise of anti-socialism

To do that we take a look at some of the more interesting trends that took place this year, global and national in nature.  Okay, there were a ton of topics to turn to with a highly active president in office.  In fact he makes news while we’re trying to report it—which happened with this show as President Trump took on Iran.

2020 Year in Preview: Unfinished Stories from 2019

For us, this was a very fast hour to try and cover as many topics as possible and having a lot of fun while we’re doing it.  I hope you have the time to take a listen and see if we’ve discussed the issues you felt were important.  And what about the possibilities for 2020?  Listen to find out our take.

And let us know what you thought. We’d love to get your feedback on this rather unique episode of I Spy Radio.

Happy New Year everyone, and hello 2020!

FBI Destroys Itself | IG Report: Lies, Forgery and Errors in Quest to Spy on Trump

Show Summary: John Solomon and Scott McEwen weigh in on the IG Report. Horowitz finds the FBI committed gross errors, lies, forgery, and process violations in its FISA warrant and Crossfire Hurricane investigation. The only thing missing was a signed confession. What’s next?

Original Air Dates: Dec. 14 & 15, 2019 | John Solomon & Scott McEwen

This Week:  Last week Adam Schiff and then later, Jerry Nadler, held committee hearings that filled with witnesses who had witnessed nothing, but were very willing to pass along gossip.  But it turns out they weren’t the only storytellers. It turns out that’s the same technique the FBI officers were willing to give to FISA judges—a load of fiction.

IG Report: FISA Warrant Based on Lies

Judges on the FISA court assumed they were receiving the highest form of intelligence. But they were misled. Purposefully. And this from the FBI, which used to be considered the premiere and most-respected law-enforcement agency in the world. But no longer.

As Inspector General Horowitz testified, we found out that FBI officers were willing to lie and even forge information to get warrants against innocent people.  Using gossip as evidence, people like Carter Page, who not only professed his innocence regarding contacts he made with Russians but had absolute evidence that he was telling the truth.

And the FBI knew it. At the time they submitted the FISA warrant application. But they kept that proof of innocence hidden, out of sight and away from the FISA judges—the very people who are supposed to safeguard our constitutional rights.  Instead, the FBI buried evidence to obtain warrants as a way to try to make then-candidate and then President Trump appear guilty or willing to “collude with the Russians”. Or both.

IG Report: FBI set off a Firestorm of Lies

And let’s not forget, the FISA warrant to spy on Trump and subsequent Crossfire Hurricane “investigation” has led directly to the Democrats desperate impeachment hoax. The FISA warrant and investigation became the “evidence” of Trump working with the Russians to steal the election. The mainstream media repeated the lies often enough (thank you, Goebbels) until people believed it.

And this lie became the narrative has become the foundation for impeachment.

Speaking of Impeachment

Make no mistake, the Democrats have tried desperately to distract from the IG Report by announcing they would be drafting articles of impeachment of President Trump. On the same day the IG report came out.

Although wasn’t that odd? The Democrats, who claimed there is overwhelming evidence to convict Trump of high crimes and misdemeanors, a man so dangerous to the country, they had no choice but to impeach—a man so dangerous that merely an hour later, they also announced they liked his USMCA trade deal and would pass it. What?

Talk about surreal.

John Solomon on IG Report: FISA High Crimes and Misdemeanors

About the only real “high crimes and misdemeanors” in Washington DC were committed by the FBI. Because they knowingly lied to the FISA court.

Award-winning journalist, John Solomon, has been doggedly following the FBI corruption and FISA abuse story, to the point that many in the mainstream “media” mocked him as a conspiracy theorist. But not any longer.

We talk to John to get his insights on both the IG report and the Horowitz testimony.  He analyzes the incredible extent that Horowitz’s investigation uncovered and where it goes from here.  He also gives us some insight into Schiff’s collection of phones such as Nunes, and even his own—and what courses of action John will be taking.

Scott McEwen: Examining IG Report through the eyes of a Lawyer

Then best-selling author, Scott McEwen, joins us. He puts on his attorney hat as we sift through how the FISA court was used, why we may not be hearing from those judges, and his reaction to the abuse of power.

Scott also has the second book from his Camp Valor series, The Trigger Mechanism, coming out in February next year but can be pre-ordered now. It might be intended for teens but, trust us, the Camp Valor series is a great read for adults too. (Have you checked out our I Spy Radio store lately? There’s a book for practically everyone on your Christmas list!)

Don’t miss this week’s show – the hour will fly by.

After Devastating IG Report, FBI and Others at a Reckoning Point

Horowitz said that his report should not make anyone feel vindicated; after this week’s show, you’ll hear how they’re not only not vindicated, but maybe some should be start planning what to take with them for a long stay in jail.

Seriously.

But bad elements at the FBI acting outside the law, lying to courts, and creating false investigations isn’t new. Check out this video from nearly two decades ago.

Original Air Dates: Dec. 7 & 8, 2019 | Dallas Jenkins & James Hirsen

This Week:  The nonsense of listening to non-witnesses who try to testify about what they didn’t hear, but were sure that what they didn’t hear was something that someone thought, continues.

We tried to take a break from that nonsense by recognizing the start of Advent—and at least we get halfway there. The first half our show, we welcome back Dallas Jenkins.

The Light Side: The Chosen

Mr. Jenkins is the director and producer for an incredible series The Chosen, the largest crowd-funded media project ever. Everyday people helped launch this incredible project to be a part of creating a series depicting Jesus and the everyday people He chose to be a part of his earthly ministry.

Download the free The Chosen app to watch all eight episodes for free! And help share it to people all around the globe. Available from iTunes or Google Play store.

We talk with Mr. Jenkins to get more insight into the series, which just launched episodes 5–8, his perceptions on the stories he chose for the series, and the new and exciting ways to watch and share it with people all around the globe. It’s a truly remarkable way to share Jesus’ message and life, right before Christmas.

The Dark Side: Impeachment

Impeachment: Democrats try to steal the presidency
Impeachment: Democrats try to steal the presidency

Then, dark side. We’d planned to talk Christmas, movies, pop-culture and a little politics with our next guest, James Hirsen. But then just hours before our interview, Nancy Pelosi took to the mic and announced that—despite Wednesday’s disastrous hearings with the highly partisan testimonies from the Democrats’ “constitutional experts”—the Democrats were lurching forward to draft articles of impeachment.

So, instead of talking Christmas we tap into James Hirsen wearing his attorney hat, and his recent articles of why the Democrats really should not want the impeachment to head to the Senate.  Mr. Hirsen walks us through his analysis of how they’re moving forward in spite of the reality of no evidence.

And don’t miss his discussion on how President Trump’s almost off-hand inquiry about Ukraine having the Crowd Strike server may have been what really set off the latest impeachment attempt and why.  Where is the server and why hasn’t it been turned over? Or destroyed like so many other pieces of hardware that had evidence on the Democrats?

Democrats in power are probably a little nervous about that.

Air Dates: November 23 & 24, 2019 | Dr. Jerome Corsi & Burgess Owens

Jerome Corsi: Impeachment and New Ukraine Revelations

Dr. Jerome Corsi successfully fought back against the Mueller probe by refusing to cooperate. The FBI had tried to get him to sign a “confession” that would have suborned perjury—just to get Trump. Yes. Our own Department of Justice wanted to break the law to try to convict Trump, who didn’t break the law.

But Corsi took a stand and said no. Now he’s fighting back and updates us on the status of his counter-suit against the FBI.

Jerome Corsi's book Coup d' EtatAnd then, in the middle of the Democrats Grand Impeachment, the news broke about indictments in Ukraine for corruption—by the Democrats, including Hunter Biden, Joe Biden, and others. Perhaps even Adam Schiff. Are the Democrats about to face justice? Finally?

Dr. Cosrsi has some books out as well. See the Links & Info section for his books as well as his solution to the border wall problem.

Burgess Owens: Retaking a Congressional Seat

Super Champion and long-time I Spy Radio guest, Burgess Owens announced that it’s time to take a stand. By running for Congress.

In 2018, a lot of Republicans had turned anti-Trump. Why? Because they believed the lies told by the Democrat-controlled media. That Trump colluded with the Russians. That Trump was an agent of the Russians. And on and on.

And because she bought the lie, Mia Love lost her Congressional seat—thereby paving the way for Speaker Nancy and her Impeachment Circus.

But as we now know (well a lot of us knew already) that the Russia-collusion narrative spun by the media was a lie. And that’s why Burgess Owens wants to take that seat. It’s time to have a congressman who wants to fight with the President and get rid of do-nothing Dems who just want to fight against the President.

If you want a Congressman who will fight for the President and for America, donate to help Burgess across the goal line. He needs your support. And you don’t even have to be in Utah. Visit Burgess4Utah.com to donate or volunteer.

Air Dates: Nov. 2nd & 3rd, 2019 | John Solomon and John Kiriakou

This week: To many political observers, the Democrats have done the proverbial “jump the shark” by relentless pushing a fake impeachment before even all the facts are known. And once again, they’re relying on their triad of allies:  disinformation, the Democrat “mainstream media”, and the ill-informed everyday voters (thanks to disinformation and the Democrat mainstream media).

But why? Why rush into a fake impeachment when they know it will fail in the senate? And why did their much vaunted “whistle blower” suddenly panic over a benign phone call between two presidents? One word: Ukraine.

Ukraine: Ground Zero of Corruption and Collusion

To understand why the Democrats pulled the trigger, you have to understand the panic behind what happened on the Ukraine phone call.  We talk with John Solomon, formerly of The Hill and now a Fox News contributor, about the origins of the Ukraine corruption.

It starts with Obama and Biden in the wake of the 2014 Ukraine uprisings. We talk with John Solomon about the Obama administration’s odd maneuvers, essentially creating the perfect storm — not to fight corruption but for corruption. Including setting up an anti-corruption bureau that became the cloak for corruption.

Another Deep State Ploy?

One of the more interesting stories John Solomon has exposed was a secretive meeting at the Obama-Biden White House. Biden had invited the top Ukrainian prosecutors to the White House to discuss corruption.

But what it turned into was actual corruption: White House official urging the Ukraine prosecutors to drop their investigation into Burisma. And to re-open a dormant corruption case into a a political operative who would later be pushed into the Trump campaign. We talk it over with John Solomon and the follow up with John Kiriakou. Was this yet another example of guilt engineering? Much like we’ve seen with George Papadopoulos. (and as John Kiriakou himself experienced.)

More Collusion by the Democrats

As we researched this week’s show and the collusion and corruption centered around Ukraine, it became abundantly clear we are at the mere tip of the tip of the iceberg. There is a lot more coming in the following weeks. John Solomon has been a one-man workhorse to expose this corruption. Be sure to take a look at the links below.

Ukraine as Impeachment Trigger

The Democrats’ actions aren’t reasonable or normal in the wake of what happened. Trump is looking into corruption. And for that they want to impeach him?

The Democrat’ actions can only be explained by sheer panic and desperation. Why are they so panicked over a phone call about corruption. If there was corruption by Joe Biden, shouldn’t they want to get to the bottom of things?

Instead, they’ve turned this into Trump allegedly abusing the power of his office by going after a political opponent.

It begs the question: just how many Democrats were profiting off the corruption in Ukraine?

The Ukraine Whistle Blower

Here’s what other sites have said about the whistle blower. He’s a Biden operative. He was formerly fired by the White House for leaking. Not to mention spreading false stories about Putin ordering Trump to do things. He is a registered democrat. And his name is Eric Ciaramella.

We talk with an actual whistle blower, John Kiriakou, about the Democrats secret whistle blower. John actually went to jail over his whistle blowing, as a patriot. You can imagine John has a lot to say about this guy who has been sniping from the deepest shadows of the Deep State.

    • Based on unexplained “pings” between the bank’s computer and a server used by Trump
    • the theory soon became political fodder for Fusion GPS,
    • Arises from Christopher Steele visiting the State Dept on Oct 11, 2016
    • The memo also stated that after a New York Times reporter contacted Alfa Bank about the pings, the “hidden server belonging to Trump then disappears.” It added “no one but Alfa Bank was asked.”
    • John: “The now debunked conspiracy theory about Alfa Bank and Russia collusion was given life through Steele’s contact at State, fanned by career bureaucrats and the Fusion GPS firm. It’s the sort of tale that makes some believe there is — or at least was — a ‘deep state’ trying to influence the 2016 election.”

    • Whatever political persuasion you hold, Soros’s election-year contacts at State speak volumes about the fact that big-money access to those in power is a bipartisan phenomenon.
  • Clinton campaign given defensive briefing about foreign threat, something Trump never got on Russia (John Solomon Reports, Oct 24, 2019)
    • “My sources say the FBI was a participant in the briefing but they cannot tell me which foreign power was raised with Clinton’s team because it remains classified. Several said the threat did not involve Russia, Ukraine or China though.”
      • So on the one hand, you have FBI and CIA planting evidence and assets into the Trump campaign, never telling Trump at all about “Russian agents” so he could help catch them — and on the other hand, you have US Intelligence giving a briefing to Hillary that they didn’t give to Trump
      • Could this “briefing” have been about Trump and his supposed work with Russia et al?

  • U.S. Citizens Continue to Infiltrate Eastern European Governments (Oriental Review, May 1, 2015)
    • “The recent appointment of the austerity-loving U.S. citizen and investment firm chief Natalie Jaresko as Ukraine’s Finance Minister continues a trend that has seen one Eastern European country after another appointing or electing U.S. citizens as major government officials.
    • Jaresko had Ukrainian citizenship conferred on her by Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko as she arrived in Kiev to take up her new post in the government of Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, himself a former legal U.S. resident
    • Jaresko not only handled Ukraine’s $74 billion in “debt restructuring”, she later transferred to Puerto Rico to handle their $70 billion debt restructuring as well.

Original Air Dates: Oct. 5th & 6th, 2019 | Scott McEwen & Ron Ryschlok

This Week: The D’s keep giving us the same story over and over and we’re supposed to think there’ll be a different result. Except we’re not the ones who are crazy. Instead, we’re on to them. So disinformation in the age of Schiff and Pelosi just doesn’t work as well as it used to. Maybe it’s because they’re so bad at it. Or some of the swamp that has been relied on has actually been sent packing. Let’s hope for the latter.

The Democrats Desperation

Camp Valor book cover by bestselling author, Scott McEwenOn the heels of Trump’s record-low-unemployment-number-blow-out (a FIFTY-year low!), American’s have a lot to be grateful for. And one of those things to be grateful for are the Americans who have studied and zeroed in on just how the political games are being played. And are now well-armed to fight back. After all, if we don’t understand ‘em, we can’t beat ‘em.

Order Scott’s book, Camp Valor! Great for your kids and grand kids. For the next generation of patriots. Trust us. This will be a movie some day. Check out all of Scott’s books in our store page

Plots Hatched in Darkness, Die in Sunlight

Disinformation by Ron Rychlak book coverWe start with bestselling co-author of American Sniper, Scott McEwen, who has carefully kept his eyes focused on the Democrats’ attempt at a presidential coup. You’ll hear him describe what Pelosi’s attempts have led to, how they’re exposing themselves, and why he feels it’s not so much an impeachment attempt but is actually an unlawful takeover of the presidency.

Buy Ron Rychlak’s terrific book, Disinformation.  If you want to understand the Democrats’ desperate impeachment ploy, read this book. Media rollouts, staging, re-framing, and more.

As the Democrats level every unfounded and false claim they can, even the Washington Post awarded Schiff four Pinocchio’s for his dishonest rendition of Trump’s phone call transcript. And don’t miss Scott’s new book, Camp Valor’s sequel, in February 2020!

Telltale Signs of Disinformation

Disinformation - Mark Twain it is easier to fool people than to convince them they've been fooledThen, Ron Rychlak, co-author of Disinformation, helps us take a look at secretive Soviet-era propaganda campaign and how this tool is being rolled out today with the “impeachment.” We discuss why the effort to keep the false narrative spinning is so important to the far-left.

It’s more than changing our opinions. The goal of disinformation is accept their false premise as being the truth.

Democrats Disinformation Impeachment

Using tools of disinformation, active Soviet-era agents successfully took down religious leaders and politicians. They used a network of millions (yes, millions) of disinformation agents and operatives who worked their way into positions of power and influence. In the government, in media, in film, and in academia. At the end of the war, happened to all these agents? Where are they now? You won’t want to miss his answer.

Ron will be back next week to continue the discussion.

Another don’t miss show!
