Light and Dark: Christmas and… Impeachment?

Light and Dark: Christmas and… Impeachment?

Show Summary: Well, we tried to have a show about Christmas and the start of Advent but then Nancy Pelosi stepped to the mic. Why are Democrats so desperate to push a flailing impeachment? It’s like they’re worried about something. What could it be?

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.

Christians Go Over the Walls the Left Keep Putting Up

Christians Go Over the Walls the Left Keep Putting Up

Show Summary: Storytelling is incredibly powerful. We’re hard-wired for it. Is that why the political Far Left, Facebook, Twitter, and Hollywood are all trying to censor the Right—especially Christians? (Jump to podcast…)

Original Air Dates: Oct. 26th & 27th, 2019 | Dallas Jenkins & James Hirsen

This Week: There are many breaking news stories this week that center on the Flynn case and those who were in power that manipulated events, and then the messaging, to create illusions through storytelling techniques. It’s in the same vein of Disinformation, which we’ve recently covered. This week we take a break from all the breaking news of the Russian collusion hoax, except for one thing, how storytelling is usually won by the far-left.

Using Storytelling Techniques over Facts

People love a good story and if it’s presented well and is intriguing, it becomes believable. To the point that stories can become more believable (and certainly more memorable) than the reality.

Is this why mainstream media stories have taken on the fascination of a reality TV show? They’re staged with heroes and villains in ways that borrow from storytelling techniques to make their version of the story more believable than the facts themselves. Like Trump and Ukraine quid pro quo.

Hollywood: Epicenter of Storytelling

The political Left does this with far more skill than the Right. Hollywood certainly knows this with the billions they make off of storytelling. And that’s where they get you twice, because many times when news stories become too much reality TV, folks turn to “entertainment” as a way to escape—only to be listening to storytelling that often goes against their beliefs and values.

Hollywood has created a vacuum of messaging when Christians allowed the Far Left to take control and stopped going to movies (like who can blame them?), which allowed Hollywood to gravitate to their liberal counterparts in politics and the media.

Going over the Walls: The Chosen

But as in the story of David and Goliath, small nuggets of Christian storytelling continued to rise through the noise. And Christians are finding ways around the Hollywood paradigm. Enter Dallas Jenkins—director of the series, The Chosen—who raised $10 million dollars online, the largest amount ever from online crowd-sourcing for a film series.

The Chosen is a tremendous series about the life of Jesus told from a unique perspective. Staying out of Hollywood’s normal methods for creating and distributing a film, Mr. Jenkins went directly to the people, who in turn stood up to support this incredible project. And it paid off.

The Chosen: Breaking Down Barriers

With the funding he needed, Jenkins created a stunning series with all of the production value you’d see in even more expensive projects, like Amazon’s Jack Ryan series. Created as a multi-season series, the first four episodes are now free to view if you go to thechosen.tv, where you can download it as an app, watch it on your laptop, or stream to your TV.

Tune in this week to hear what has made this series so successful and why, with hundreds of films and TV shows already out there about Jesus, theirs has been such a success.

Hirsen: Why Hollywood Targets Christians

Then we welcome back James Hirsen, who continues the discussion of the different ways filmmakers, that Hollywood studios don’t support, are using to get their storytelling into the mainstream. He discusses the shift in the way stories will reach consumers in this evolving technical world—and how the far-left has been able to maximize their hold on Hollywood, through culture and lifestyle.

Hollywood and The Left’s Censorship

But with all these fascinating stories and their end-around on Hollywood, there is a deeper movement by the Far Left to censor the political Right and especially Christians. Censorship is the new weapon in their attacks. We’ve already by Democrat candidates like Kamala Harris to actually censor the President of the United States from Twitter, (which would force him to use the Leftist media to try to talk to the American people.

Make no mistake. This is not mere “persuasion” attempts. This is a genuine effort to silence opposition of the Left. (See every socialist and communist nation ever.) And the Left and Hollywood are getting support for their censorship from an unlikely place.

Tune in to hear what happened when one director decided to push back.

Air Dates: Month # & #, 2019 | Dr. Bob Zybach & James Hirsen

Good Time for Good News

This Week:  Over the past few months we’ve been able to experience what President Trump has done for our courts, especially the 9th Circuit.  There have actually been decisions made in the past few weeks that support things like, oh you know, the rule of law.

With just that one amazing change, Trump may finally be able to make a decision without being hauled into court, as the Left tries any trick to try stop. And this subtle but important change means we can look at some of the new rules knowing they may actually be enacted.

Good News for the Endangered Species Act

One of those are incredibly important changes he’s made to the Endangered Species Act. And, naturally, what’s being reported about simple changes that could lead to actual recovery of these species is being mis-reported that it will destroy a “vitally needed” government program.

This act that was to save animals from extinction because the money resource for far-left organizations who abused it through their sue-and-settle actions.  Rather than trying to protect animals from harm they wanted to raise funds by suing while having prelimary agreements from Deep State bureaucrats to happily ensure the government would lose its case so that they could pay out high and outrageous attorney fees back to them.  A legal loop hold that until recently was handing over millions to pro-environmental-anti-human groups.

With that atrocious practice eliminated, we turn our focus to the changes Trump’s administration has actually made to the ESA and its new benefits to species and to landowners.  Dr. Zybach walks us through what he’s seen in how the landowner is now empowered to help with the ESA and why that’s a good thing.

Also, don’t miss his personal encounter with the Endangered Species Act, Oregon’s “other Spotted Owl”, the Marbled Murrelet. It’s a good example of abuse by the scientific community and what happens when you sacrifice science on the altar of politics. (You can download his article, Oregon Coast Range Old-Growth: Part III, Marbled Murrelet Habitat.)

Good News from Hollywood. Wait, what…?

Kanye West September 2019 Album leaks, Jesus is King
Kanye West September 2019 Album leaks, Jesus is King

Then we turn to Hollywood, the last place we expected to see good news this week and talk with James Hirsen about one star of pop culture who is making a dramatic change —to Christian music.

Kanye West, who recently became a born-again Christian, has a new album coming out in September.  Mr. Hirsen walks us through Kanye and his wife, Kim Kardashian, have a tremendous impact on pop culture and why the Far Left may push back against them. Or just flat out turn on them. Because, you know, kids listening to an enlightened and positive message is clearly so dangerous.

We also have a momentary dip into the darker side of Bernie Sanders who wants population control because of (drum roll) global warming. He wants to sacrifice life to save us from death, sigh.

But we only stay on the dark side for a little bit and quickly turn back to some more good news—the newest Christian movie, Overcomer, and its powerful message.

This week, it’s all good fun, and uplifting, except for Bernie’s message.  But then again, when is anything socialist ever good news?

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:
The National Childrens Alliance operates Child Advocacy Centers (CACs) around the country with an interactive map to find a center near you.
The National Center of Missing and Exploited Children

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.”

Socialism’s ties to Islam Part 1

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.

Former Jihadist on Israel at 70 — Why it is the Middle East Miracle

Former Jihadist on Israel at 70 — Why it is the Middle East Miracle

Show Summary: May 14, 2018 marks Israel at 70. Mainstream media pundits are constantly proven wrong about Israel — and Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia. Probably because they just read other pundits. We talk to someone who truly understands the conflict from the inside out: a former jihadist. Israel, its neighbors, and why Israel’s founding caught Muslims by complete surprise.

Will there ever be peace between the Children of Ishmael and the Children of Isaac?

Air Dates: May 12 & 13, 2018 | Former Cultural Jihadist, Kamal Saleem

This Week: Monday, May 14th, is the 70th anniversary of Israel’s Independence. Also on Monday, under President Trump’s directive, the US is opening their embassy in Israel. But it’s happening when so much else is swirling all around them. Not all of it bad—in fact some of it is downright miraculous.

With the mainstream media pundits predicting nothing but doom and gloom no matter what Trump does, we thought we’d turn to someone who actually understands the conflict. Someone who knows the Arabic and Islamic culture of anti-Israel. Because he lived it. And was willing to die for it.

Insights on Israel from an Expert (Former) Hater

We go to a real expert, not a pundit. A person who was born in Beirut, trained by the Muslim Brotherhood and PLO, and later commissioned by a Saudi Prince to come to America to wage a cultural jihad, and who reads many of the native languages of the Middle East. We turn to Kamal Saleem.

Born in the very land where hatred of everything American and Jewish was taught, Kamal’s later transformation to Christianity only helps us untangle the Islamic religious/political response but the cultural and emotional response surrounding Israel.

Israel’s Independence at 70 Years

This week, Kamal talks about why Israel’s founding took his family by complete surprise, not to mention the surrounding countries as well. Surprisingly, it wasn’t political.

We examine Israel’s formation, its survival through 10 wars, not to mention countless skirmishes, and the current changing relationships with their Middle East neighbors.  Neighbors such as Saudi Arabia, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, and the most dangerous one of all— Iran.

Israel’s Neighbors

We discuss: how Syria is slowly regaining ground and chasing out ISIS; that Saudi Arabia, is actually making peaceful overtures toward Israel; and how Iran is pulling the strings of a lot of countries. Listen to find the importance of Saudi Arabia’s changing face, the real reasons why they are bombing Yemen, and why they are accepting Israel.

But do they really mean it. If you’ve heard Kamal before, you know about the Muslim doctrine of taqiyya and lying to one’s enemies. Should Israel be trusting? And what are the tell-tale signs of lying or trust for the Saudis?

That Iran Deal: Trump Right or Wrong and Why Now?

If you wondered why Trump (who said all along he wanted to withdraw from the Iran Deal), waited until now to do it, you’ll hear why he did and why waiting played right into his hand. It turns out there was a very goo reason why Trump waited until now instead of when he first had the chance months ago.

And, as usual, the pundits were wrong. They all said it would backfire. Check out this tweet from an actual Iranian, not some CNN pundit: “As an Iranian, I would like to say: Dear President @realDonaldTrump, Iranians are very grateful for your decision to #CancelIranDeal. ”

It’s Our Battle Too: Christian Persecution Around the World

It’s Our Battle Too: Christian Persecution Around the World

Show Summary: Christian persecution is largely unreported in the mainstream media, in part because it doesn’t fit the narrative. But Americans need to stand up for Christians. Why? Because it’s not just an attack on innocent people, it’s an attack on our foundations. We talk with David Curry. president and CEO of Open Doors USA, to shine the light on what Christians endure for their faith and how Americans can help.

This Week:  60 years ago a then-little-known man, Brother Andrew, stood up to help those Christians being persecuted in Russia when he smuggled bibles across Russia’s border.  His story of risking everything to bring hope to persecuted Christians behind the Iron Curtain was made famous in the book, God’s Smuggler, and became the starting point for Open Doors USA.

Christian Persecution

On this weekend’s show, we’re talking about Christian persecution.

In the larger context, it’s about standing up for yourself. For your beliefs. It’s about standing your ground, not giving ground. And it’s about doing so when standing your ground could cost you your life.

Here in America, we’re blessed to be mostly free of persecution. But there is definitely discrimination against Christians. And discrimination is the seed that, if allowed to grow, will become persecution.

America is under assault; especially our values and religious heritage. And that’s a tue shame. In a cruel and senseless world, God is the only thing that makes sense. Our American heritage is built on that faith. To attack the religious underpinnings of our heritages and to remove God is to leave the next generation without the foundations they need to stand on, to make sense of the senseless.  It is removing the landmarks on the journey.

Without the Judeo-Christian heritage, without Christianity, there would be no America.

Open Doors USA: Fghting Christian Persecution Around the World

David Curry, CEO and President of Open Doors USA, takes us through the types of attacks Christians are experiencing around the globe. We discuss why America is so connected to this global fight, why it’s our fight too, and how America’s very founding is so deeply rooted in Judeo-Christian beliefs.

But it’s not only about what Christians endure in other countries, where being a Christian can land you in jail and far worse.

Instead, this week’s show will give you a glimpse into the amazing faith, service, and example of how these persecuted Christians, in the worst of conditions, stand tall in even the most punishing of countries.  Jailed, starved, beaten, or worse there are men and women who live to fight another day to bring their message of God’s love to places where you would think the message could not be heard.

And don’t miss David talking about Open Doors’ efforts to work with the Trump administration, fighting back against discrimination right here in America, and the different ways you too can stand tall and help those who live in fear of standing on their own.

Welcome to another edition and another year of I Spy Radio — helping you to get a little more intelligence on big govt. If this is your first time joining us, a special welcome to you as we kick off a new year. We hope you’ll join us every week as we give you more intelligence in one hour than most shows do in three.

This week

The first part of a two-part series focused on natural resources. And there is some good news on that front—for once.

Speak Life 2018

But before we get to the natural resources portion, our first guest is Jeff Jimerson, founder of Oregon Life United and lead petitioner to stop taxpayer funded abortions in Oregon.  To help get the word out on this signature initiative, his organization is bringing Mike Huckabee to Oregon, January 21st and 22nd.

We talk to Jeff about whether it’s true or not that Oregon has no pro-life laws to protect the unborn. No parental notification, no limits?  And then don’t miss the information on Gov. Huckabee’s visit to Oregon at their Speak Life 2018 event—and that’s not all.  This group has some exciting plans coming up, so we’ll be having Jeff back on to give updates as plans come to fruition.

Progressive politicians are wrong if they think free abortions for all is a winning strategy. Especially for today’s youth. Polls show an overwhelming majority of today’s youth are pro-life. Why? Because they’re the sonogram generation. They grew up at a time mom came home from the doctor with sonogram pictures and say, “See? This is your baby brother or this is your baby sister. Here’s the head… Here’s her arm…” They know that’s a baby in there, not some “blob of tissue.”

Pebble Mine

Then we switch hats to focus on natural resources something environmentalists have fought against for years.  But what these extremists don’t understand is that being an environmentalist doesn’t mean we can’t touch natural resources, it’s more about how you treat the lands and the people when you do harvest resources.

The Pebble Mine. Just waiting for permit approvalWe head back to Bristol Bay, Alaska, to talk about one of the most richest mineral deposits in the world: the Pebble Mine project.  A mine that has been put on hold for years as the Obama administration refused to even allow the permitting process to begin.

Long-time listeners of I Spy will remember that Pebble Partnership was forced to sue the EPA to give them same rights as any other mining company and discovered that the EPA had been conspiring with environmental groups to stop the Pebble Mine from ever submitting a permit application.

Now with the Trump administration in place the EPA has allowed the permitting process to begin, a process that will take years to finalize.  And with a growing economy, America will need the gold, copper, and other minerals of Pebble Mine to build computers, cell phones, and other essentials that we use daily in our lives.

Winning against Environmentalists

But it’s more than just Pebble Mine. Tune in to hear how after years of shutting down and, dare we say, terrorizing industry, the extreme environmentalists are on the defensive.  It’s about time. Don’t miss to hear how the extremists are “old school” and their fear-mongering is out of touch with modern-day approaches to natural resources.

And don’t miss next week’s show as we continue our focus on natural resources: Could there be some hope for Oregon?

Take Action — Stop Oregon’s Taxpayer Funding of Abortions

Take Action — Stop Oregon’s Taxpayer Funding of Abortions

Take Action Briefing

What: Oregon is the only state in the nation that has no pro-life laws and thanks to a bill signed into law by Democrat Gov. Kate Brown, Oregon will now use taxpayer dollars to give away free abortions
Who: All Oregonians. If you’re a pro-life Oregon taxpayer, your taxes will now be used to pay for abortions
How: Take action to stop the funding of abortions by signing a petition
When: Now!
Why: Save unborn children and protect lives. In Oregon, a baby can be aborted at full term for any reason. There are no restrictions on abortion. Stopping the funding is a critical first step.

The Problem in More Depth: Oregon’s Anti-Life Policies

All babies are pro-lifeSome years ago, Oregon became famous for its first-in-the-nation assisted-suicide bill. With the latest pro-abortion bills signed into law in 2017 by Democrat Governor, Kate Brown (a former lobbyist for Planned Parenthood), Oregon truly has become the Death State.

In Oregon, there are zero restrictions on abortion. None. A woman can abort her child at full term, right up to the day of birth and even in the act of birth. Abortions at any time, for any reason.

As if this was not horrid enough, to add insult to injury, Gov. Kate Brown signed into law a provision that allows Oregon to use taxpayer dollars to offer free abortions. To anyone. Even people here illegally. That’s right. If you’re a pro-life Oregonian, your hard-earned tax dollars will be used to pay for 100% free abortions—not even so much as a co-pay.

What can be done?

There is a petition drive right now to stop Oregon’s taxpayer funding of abortions. Head to Stop the Funding (www.stopthefunding.org) and sign the petition. You can sign an individual petition (for one person) or download a petition sheet for you and your family, and your friends and neighbors. Download another and take it to church.

There is a long, long way to go to protect the unborn in Oregon. This is just the first small step.

Please help. Hundreds of thousands of signatures are needed to block Oregon from using your money to kill the unborn.
