Original Air Dates: Mar 5th & 6th, 2021 | Kimberly Hermann & Chuck Wiese

This Week: Do you ever sit in your living room and think the world today just feels off?

In Oregon that’s not hard to do when we think about what people have endured over the past year.  From businesses shut down orders, to losing their sole income—while watching bills pile up.

Victory in Federal Court: Overruling the CDC’s Power Grab

In all of this, renters were hugely impacted; they lost jobs only to find that no job might mean no home.  So the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) stepped in and upended Constitutionally guaranteed property rights and declared a moratorium to evictions. Which sounds nice. Except, why is the CDC (which is hardly an economics agency) inserting itself into private property rights and contract law? And, as usual, Leftist thinking left out the other half of the equation.

Because on the flip side, people were taking advantage of the situation by not paying rent — and landlords were being forced into not being able to pay their investment mortgages that also kept the roof over the renters’ heads.

Southeastern Legal Foundation: Big Win over Government Overreach

It was bad enough that the government stepped in, telling business owners their revenue streams were shut off, causing disruptions of US free markets like never before.  But then to declare that if renters can’t (or won’t) pay, they can’t be evicted. And there sat the landlords, footing the bills. Imagine if the CDC, with their economic insights, had deemed customers could walk into stores and take whatever they want and not have to pay for it.  What other powers could the CDC seize for itself? Or what other rights could the CDC take away on a whim? Property rights are the cornerstone of the Constitution.

Enter Kim Hermann , the General Counsel for Southeastern Legal Foundation, which stood up to tyranny and sued to protect constitutional rights.  And, in an exciting slam of the gavel, the judge determined the CDC’s moratorium on evictions was unconstitutional.

And suddenly with that decision the world started to right itself. Just a little bit.

We talk to Kim about what this case meant and what does it mean for upcoming cases in the future.  We also talk to her about election laws, the Supreme Court’s decision to not hear any election fraud cases, and H. R. 1, the legalizing- election-theft bill just passed by Congressional democrats.  She also talks about what the states are working on to correct that election integrity problems. Brave men and women who are stepping up to help fight another good fight.

Updates on Texas’s Green Energy Failure and on the Vaccines

Then, scientist Chuck Wiese returns to give us some of updates on two stories we recently talked to him about: the power grid situation in Texas and the covid vaccines.  But before we dip into those, Chuck shares with us his own experiences of being a landlord and what’s happened in Oregon.

Tune in to hear how once again Oregon was the Petri dish for Leftist ideology as it whittled away at property rights of landowners under Governor Kate that perhaps set the stage for the CDC’s eviction moratoriums.  We also talk with him about some updates on what is going on in oil-rich Texas and why so many climate and green energy officials in Texas have quit since their big storm.  And we touch base to get his thoughts on the latest vaccine and some ongoing concerns about the pandemic and the government’s response to it.

And when we fold all the above information into one big package we have to wonder if we will ever hear the truth from any government officials.

Original Air Dates: Jan. 23 & 24, 2021 | Justin Danhof & Kimberly Hermann

It’s no secret that the American oligarchy of Big Business, Big Government, and Big Media hate Americans. At least the “wrong kind.”

What is the “wrong kind”? Republicans. Conservatives. And especially Trump supporters. Suddenly, politics is the new racism. And if you’re not in the correct party with the correct beliefs, you’re on the outside looking in. It’s not just an American oligarchy either. We all thought Biden was bought by China and foreign interests. And his first days in office confirmed just that as he weakened American energy independence and opened the door to more China and international influence in America.

Oligarchy is a form of power structure in which power rests with a small number of people. These people may be distinguished by nobility, wealth, education, corporate, religious, political, or military control.

American Oligarchy

Right now, the American oligarchy—the triumvirate of Big Government, Big Business (which includes Big Tech), and Big Media—seems indestructible. But like any three-legged stool, take out one leg and the oligarchy topples. And every oligarchy inevitably falls when all the little Davids use the weapons they have.

But what weapons do we have?

Legal Tools to Fight the Oligarchy

If you’re a conservative, you’re not only a “racist” but the victim of political racism. First they accuse of being a racist. Now they attack you with racist-style tactics. If you’re a republican or conservative or especially if you’re Trump supporter, they want you excluded from any level of politics. So much for diversity. They don’t want you in the building. They make broad decisions about you, claiming they know who you are and how you think, and want to exclude you just because you’re a republican or conservative or Trump supporter.

The “conservatives-only” drinking fountains are next.

But there are means to fight back against the oligarchy. Especially legal tools. Many people know about anti-discrimination HR laws like the ADA and Civil Rights Act, which prohibits hiring and firing based on race, sex, and religion. But most people don’t know that when it comes to politics, you can absolutely discriminate. Yes, the laws — passed by politicians — protect political discrimination.

Justin Danhof: The Free Enterprise Project

First up, we bring back Justin Danhof, General Counsel for the National Center for Public Policy Research. We wanted to have him back to focus the legal side of fighting back against Big Tech and Big Business.

The Free Enterprise Project is a program of the National Center for Public Policy Research. Their mandate is “to provide the liberty movement the missing ingredients for success.” Your donation will help keep them fighting for you.

We talk with Justin about what individuals can do to push back against the Big-Tech/Big-Business leg of the American oligarchy stool. Tune in to hear about individual actions you can take. And are there also class actions coming?

Kimberly Hermann: Southeastern Legal Foundation

In the land of the American Oligarchy, there are no end of legal battles to be had. And Southeastern Legal Foundation (SLF) is constantly out there fight for American rights and freedoms.

Support the Southeastern Legal Foundation. They are “dedicated to advocating limited government, protecting American freedom, and defending individual liberties”. They have taken on and won landmark constitutional U.S. Supreme Court cases. Help keep them on the front lines, fighting for you.

We talk with Kimberly about the endless executive orders, political discrimination, and the sickening and overtly racist “critical race theory” that they are fighting. SLF just joined a coalition of partners to drive critical race theory out of public offices and schools. And we get her take on the coming impeachment fight.

Does the Constitution even matter anymore?

Tune in. Learn. Fight back.

Original Air Dates: Dec 5 & 6, 2020 | Chuck Wiese & Kimberley Hermann

This week: Whether it’s mysterious spike of ballots all for one candidate in the middle of the night, Republican observers literally locked out of the room, or video evidence in Georgia of suitcases filled with ballots being pulled out from under a table, election fraud is widespread and in our face.

Yes, voter fraud, election fraud, election theft. It’s all real. And it all happened. And when we say “all” we mean the democrats used an “all of the above” approach. Because they pulled every trick in the book to jam as many fraudulent votes past the supposed gatekeepers to then dare anyone from trying to stop them.

Now instead of proving that Trump was innocent he’s now working to prove he won the election.  And his efforts may be paying off. But will truth win out if everybody wants to believe a lie?

But the investigation must move forward so that Americans know that they can trust the next election.  So this week we take a look at the election from two perspectives: an analysis of the impossibility of the numbers, and the legal end of evidence, affidavits and court fights.

Media Silence and Censorship on Voter Fraud

At this point, the mainstream media has laid down their gauntlet by refusing to air any real news surrounding election fraud.  But President Trump, gave an astounding White House speech this week with detail after detail on the election fraud cases. Did the media cover it? Of course not. Compare this to Obama years when they slavishly and dutifully covered every Obama speech no matter how trivial. But a speech from President Trump about rampant, widespread fraud, stealing our election? The media couldn’t be bothered.

Then a video materializes that shows a Georgia ballot counting center having four suitcases filled with Biden ballots hidden under a table.  Only to be retrieved, once the room had been emptied of witnesses, and counted. Why empty the room of witnesses? Why were there ballots hidden in boxes? Does the media even ask questions anymore?

Chuck Wiese: Election Fraud from a Statistical and Logical Analysis

Chuck Wiese walks us through the improbability of the numbers, and the strange spikes of all-Biden ballots.  According to an analysis by Dr. Shiva, an MIT statistician, we can see when the algorithm kicks in, which Mr. Wiese walks us through what that means and how it happened. We also talk other improbable anomalies, like the subtraction of Trump votes during a time they are supposedly adding votes up. Yeah. Things definitely don’t add up.

Kimberly Hermann: Election Fraud from a Legal Analysis

Then attorney Kimberly Hermann, from Southeastern Legal Foundation, takes a look at some current and upcoming lawsuits (you’ll definitely want to hear what they’re working on). Also, what evidence could wake up the media to the fraud going on and what kind of evidence that will overturn the election in the current court suits.

Original Air Dates: Nov 21 & 22, 2020 | Carrie Sheffield

This week: On Thursday, attorney Sidney Powell carefully and methodically laid out the basics to their evidence against the Dominion voting machines. Machines that were purchased in swing states whose governors or secretary of states were able to pocket income from the contracts their state signed with Dominion. And that was just the opening salvos at the Giuliani press conference.

The Giuliani Press Conference

But what must have been troubling for Dominion is the shear volume of evidence Sidney Powell is pulling together to go after them.  And she is clear, she’ll be proving her case in court in the next two weeks.

Then Friday morning Rush Limbaugh reports that Dominion was a no show for the Pennsylvanian State House hearing on Friday morning.  And Rush said that nobody seemed to know where they were with their offices vacated and shuttered.  Poof.  Dominion has disappeared.

In a separate action Rudy Giuliani, attorney for the campaign, laid out his evidence for the ballot fraud in Michigan and Pennsylvania.  It too highly devastating to the states’ ballot fraud from those wanting to get Biden into office.

The Media’s Response

And with all these pieces in motion, the mainstream media seems only to be reporting on their fantasies and beliefs, not on the news. We once again hear their “move along, nothing here to see” mantra as they dismiss any of Trump’s legal team deliverables, as anything other than inaccurate, and with no proof behind their allegations.

Carrie Sheffield is the White House Correspondent for John Solomon‘s Just The News and anchor of the nationally-syndicated TV show, “Just the News AM,” which can be seen live, M–F, 9a–10a on Dish Network (219), PlutoTV (240), Roku, and Apple TV. Or on the America’s Voice website, AmericasVoice.news.

Listen to hear from a person who’s been in the White House press room, which gives her a clear idea of how the White House press corps thinks and acts.  And she was there, in the room, at the Rudy Giuliani press conference, in which he gave damning evidence, despite what the “I see nothing!” media says.

Carrie gives us her insights from behind the scene moments, and discusses what she saw at that press conference. And don’t miss what she’s been told by the FEC Chair said about Trump’s team evidence discussed to date.

Perhaps calling elections so the Americans know who won without counting votes has gotten the main stream media to believe their own hype?

The 2020 Election Secret Weapon: Down Ballot Races

Yes, the presidential race is incredibly important. (Vote Trump!) But that’s just the start of it. For too many voters, the down ballot races get overlooked. And, shockingly, a lot of them are left empty. The “down ballot” races are just that: races further down the ballot from the top spot.

Still undecided on president? Be sure to check out Promises Made, Promises Kept!

In most elections, the presidential race gets by far the most votes. Usually, there is a 20% drop off in participation from the number of votes for president to the number of votes for the next race—often a U.S. Senator. From there, the next down ballot race drops another 20% of participation. And on and on it goes until there’s only a trickle of participation for the lesser-known races, like judges, city/county races, and area races like water boards and school boards.

Why Down Ballot Races are So Critical

There are a couple reasons why down ballot races are so critical. First, because so many people don’t vote in the down ballots, your vote effectively has more weight. That means your vote has more weight. Because your neighbor is ignoring or forgetting to vote those down ballot races, you get to have more say.

Second, down ballot races are important because of the very nature of our system. Yes, the presidential race is critical. (Vote Trump!) As is the governor’s race when it happens. But while people at the top—the President or governor—control the agenda because they have the executive power, it’s the people down ballot races who control the people at the top. Or should.

Here in Oregon, it’s not that the legislature couldn’t have acted to take away Gov Brown’s emergency powers. It’s that the democrat-controlled legislature refused to take away her emergency dictator powers. Flip the house to Republican control. Flip the senate. And suddenly democrat dictator Kate has her endless powers taken away and reined in. 

Red vs Blue. Does it really matter?

People sometimes say, “It doesn’t matter who’s in charge. Both parties are equally bad.”

California's Newsome's Thanksgiving Mandates for a Socialist Thanksgiving
Newsome’s Thanksgiving Mandates

Really? Let’s look at red states vs blue states. Red states have unemployment 62% lower than blue states. In most red states they have lower covid cases than blue states. Lower hospitalization rates. more freedoms and more economic freedom. And on and on. (See more ways Red states are beating Blue states at Just the News.)

If they’re equally bad, why are Red states doing so much better? If they’re equally bad, why is there more freedom in Red states. And why do their people have so much more hope for the future?

If there’s no difference, why is it in California, the king of blue states, Democrat Gov Newsome is trying his best to make Thanksgiving — a day of joy and gratitude and giving thanks — into a day of misery by micromanaging it to death. No more than 3 households. Must be outdoors. Report who’s came. No singing.

So, yes! Yes, it really does matter. There is a tremendous difference between the parties. And right now it comes down to hope and joy and love and embrace of life on the Republican side. While on the Democrat side, it’s fear and doom and life horrible and there’s no point to it. 

Vote Red to Save America

Each election is about giving someone control over your life. At the end of it, somoene will have legal control over your life and business. You have a say. And this year, don’t waste it by giving even more control to people who want to control you.

Whether you’re a Democrat, a Republican, Independent, or unaffiliated, we urge you to vote Republican this year. Vote Red in every race, every down ballot race. Because the Democrat Party has made it clear they want socialism. And people who want more power over you, need to have it taken from them.

This Week: We’ve heard many times that, had Hillary actually won, we would never have learned any of what the FBI did. About Obama weaponizing the FBI against his enemies. Or about Obama attempting to knock out candidate Trump and sabotage his presidency if he won. (The infamous “insurance policy.”) But now the question is what will happen if Trump doesn’t win his second term?

We’re in the middle of experiencing some of that possible reality as far-left governors storm our states rights and target churches and gun rights. And the media works overtime to lie, and spin, and make any positive a negative, and any negative Trump’s fault.

But what about the evidence that has been uncovered demonstrating the complete breakdown of legal processes that was supposed to protect us and our constitutional rights?

Rod Rosenstein Hearing

On Wednesday we saw the Ron Rosenstein hearing, and heard the bald face lies he told now compared to a year or two ago, because of what we have found out since. In part due to investigative journalists who never gave up in pursuit of the truth.

Enter award-winning investigative journalist, John Solomon.  Mr. Solomon gives us the insights to measure what Rosenstein said, as we watched him—a person in the hierarchy of the FBI and DOJ—testify that he was not responsible for anything.  Anything.  We have to wonder, based on his testimony, what did this man do when he was on the job? Because according to him, he did nothing but count his fingers while chaos and colleagues, undermining the rule of law, surrounded him. Rod Rosenstein threw the entire FBI under the bus.  He said he had responsibility, but he was not responsible. Huh?

What was also encouraging at Wednesday’s hearing is that we saw that the Democrats have nothing.  They were still trying to trot out the Russian collusion theory when it’s been proven as a factual lie. At a hearing that was about the origins of the Russia collusion hoax.

John Solomon: What Rod Rosenstein Hearing Means for Durham Investigation

Tune in to hear John Solomon’s analysis of the hearing and what it means for the immediate future. What you’ll hear is how the daggers just may be coming out as one official, Rosenstein, takes aim at another official, McCabe, to try to deflect the legal finger away from himself. And McCabe isn’t being bashful about pointing that legal finger right back at Rosenstein, saying he’s the liar.  Who do we believe? And who will cave first?

And be sure to listen for what all of this portends for the future of the current investigations by John Durham and others. This summer. We think you’ll hear why John Solomon was in such a good mood.

We also talk with Mr. Solomon about his book Fallout: : Nuclear Bribes, Russian Spies, and the Washington Lies that Enriched the Clinton and Biden Dynasties as he leads us through why the Russian collusion tactic really happened. (John’s book will be released July 14, but can be pre-ordered now from Amazon.)

All of this right as we watch more economic recovery, protests settle down, blue states struggle to admit they were wrong on taxing more. And why it’s so important to reelect President Trump to take us into the next term with even a bigger American greatness. And justice. Because if he’s not elected, it will all go away.

Rod Rosenstein is just the beginning.

This Week: Memorial Day weekend reminds us of all the American men and women in the military that lost their lives to protect our freedoms. And we’ve just lived through how, in only a few short weeks, those freedoms could be lost.

Reopening America: Fighting Fear, Fighting Democrats

Governors, almost exclusively Democrats, seemed to relish canceling freedom and liberty using their dictator-like powers, including Oregon’s Governor Kate Brown who claimed her powers exceeded not only the Oregon Constitution but even the U.S. Constitution. She and she alone could decide who could walk the streets, keep their business open, and who couldn’t.

Not to mention she could cancel your First Amendment rights to gather to worship by declaring churches a health hazard — while deciding Wal-Mart was not.

But it begs the larger question. What are they so afraid of? The virus? Or losing power? Right now, it seems they are more afraid of losing their grip on power than winning against the virus.

Entrepreneurs and Reopening America

It’s a mixed show this weekend. But in a good way. We bring to our show for the first time a quite different type of show for I Spy with our guest Clay Clark, an award-winning businessman for his entrepreneurial expertise. Clay has helped over 2,300 businesses and we wanted to get his thoughts on reopening America. And the important role entrepreneurs can and will play.

Clay discusses his devout beliefs in God and our county’s amazing freedoms. Using humor to approach difficult issues, Clay also talks about his deep frustrations with shut down orders. He points to Sweden, who despite not having any shutdowns, has had only 6 deaths per one million persons. He discusses their approach to COVID and why they have such a low death rate, along with the wrong decisions made here that led to worse results, despite being “based on science.”

Science will Save Us! Or is it being used to push Fear?

Not stopping there, Clay launches into government orders that keep shifting as “the science” shifts and what it’s done to business owners, let alone families. Or experts using error-filled computer models, which were never right, as the justification to keep us all locked up. And as states start to reopen and the fears some may feel, Clay, talks about what it will take for people to rebuild their life, or start a new business, or how to keep a business going.

As his sense of humor targets those politicians and experts who have given us ridiculous rules to follow, it’s a show that you will want to seatbelt yourself in and prepare for takeoff.

Fear Unmasked: Discover the truth about the Corona Virus Shutdown

We also spend a couple of segments discussing his recent ebook, Fear Unmasked: Discover the Truth about the Corona Virus Shutdown. The book is available as a free e-book because it was banned on Amazon. You’ll have to tune in to hear why.

Download Fear Unmasked as a PDF here

But we can say it exposes Dr. Fauci and his work with the Bill Gates Foundation as they rush toward a vaccine and virus tracking, which they hope will be forced on every American.

And before you think it will never happen here, famed attorney Alan Dershowitz—who only a few months ago was defending the President against unconstitutional impeachment efforts—recently aired his true feelings and said you have no Constitutional right to not be vaccinated. The government, he said, has the absolute right to drag you to a doctor and forcibly plunge the needle in your arm.

These are the “freedoms” our brave vets fought and died for?

Check out Alan Dershowitz appalling video, in which he proclaims The State can force you to get a vaccine and you have no Constitutional right to say no. Fast forward to 21:00

And don’t miss Clay’s announcement of his big Memorial Day, outdoor church gathering in Chicago where thousands are expected to gather. Go here for more details and check the Facebook page for live streams of the event.) Christian leadership, such as Mike Huckabee are helping to get the word out. Live streaming the event he’s hoping many will watch as they remember our fallen.

Air Dates: May 9 & 10, 2020 | Dr. Cecil Staton & Dr. Jerome Corsi

This Week: It feels like a bit of celebration. Almost a holiday. General Michael Flynn has been exonerated and all of us who KNEW the Left was conspiring have been validated. The new documents have proved this beyond any reasonable doubt. Not to mention the DOJ’s own filing, which showed Flynn never should have been investigated in the first place.

Michael Flynn: Free at Last, Free at Last

When Trump entered office, many American citizens were not just walking away from, but running away from President Obama’s socialists policy and economy.  We were in a slow, ho-hum world where just getting by was good enough.  GDP sputtered, as Obamacare had brought its own problems to medical systems versus citizens’ rights to not be forced to buy something.

But under all of it there was an unknown group of angry, bitter people who thought — like all good socialists think — the “unwashed masses” just couldn’t manage their wn lives without them. In power. And boy did their reality balloon pop when Trump got elected to clean out the swamp. But the swamp doubled down and thought nothing of destroying careers, financially bankrupting their enemies, attempting to force them to take plea deals. Papadopoulos, K.T. MacFarlen, General Flynn, and Jerome Corsi were in their sights as they would stop at nothing until Trump was either forced from office. Or so politically damaged, he couldn’t get anything done and therefore wouldn’t get re-elected.

With the news of the DOJ tossing Flynn’s case, a lot of things have suddenly changed.  In one part celebratory, one part reflective, and another part analytical interview, Dr. Corsi takes us through the experience of being targeted and what he thinks will happen next. And the vindication this brings to him and the other men and women who been facing the proverbial firing squad, as Trump continues to fight to clean out the swamp. Because as new documents are released, with more on the way, the answer of who was in on the cabal is coming to light.

Slowly, Trump is exposing the Left for who they are: power-hungry and vicious, who will lie as easily as breathe, and stop at nothing to destroy anyone who gets in their way.

Warning: Reopening America won’t Happen without the Lodging Industry

To start our show we begin with Dr. Cecil Staton, President & CEO of Asian-American Hotel Owners Association, the world’s largest hotel owners association. AAHOA members own about one in two hotels in the United States.  When it comes to the effect of COVID19, perhaps no industry has felt the pain more than the hotel industry. Going from an 80% average occupancy rate during the economic boom (was that really only 3 months ago?)  and now occupancy rates average in the single digits.

We talk with Dr. Staton about the damage to our hotel industry and how it points to economic indicator of how well an economy is prospering.  Dr. Staton gives us the inside look at what’s happening, why government solutions aren’t helping, and what hotel owners are facing past the shut down.

Jerome Corsi

General Michael Flynn is exonerated. The FBI had been withholding evidence that proved Flynn was innocent for more than 3 years. Finally, AG Barr stepped in and made FBI Director Wray and the dirty prosecutor hand over the evidence. When they did, the case fell apart. That dirty prosecutor was not only removed from the Flynn case but others as well.

Just think of what’s been exposed in the course of a week. They knew there was nothing wrong with Flynn’s phone call but wanted to “question him” any way. A complete perjury trap in an attempt to either remove President Trump or damage him so much politically that he would be unable to implement his agenda. Like undo the Obama administration. Or reveal Obama’s plots.

Join us as we talk with Jerome Corsi, who, like Flynn, was a target of the FBI’s abusive prosecution. Or, as we like to call it, the FBI’s “guilt engineering.”

His latest book, Coup D’Etat, just released in March 2020, looks very prescient indeed.

Air Dates: April 25 & 26, 2020 | Dr. Tim Ball

This Week: On last week’s “best of” show with Scott McEwen, we discussed whether the corona virus was one of, if not the biggest, intelligence failures of all times. How did our intel community so badly missed what was happening in China? And even the mainstream media is waking up to the question, “Did China lie about what was happening?” And the questions about China are only just beginning.

So this week we are taking a deeper look at China as well as the U.S. and the world’s response to the “tyranny of experts.”

China Lied? Or something Else?

You have to wonder how the virus broke out of China and was spread worldwide when so many countries watch for those types of viral, biomedical attacks. Was it by accident? Or was there something much more nefarious?

If you remember when Trump first took office in 2016, even some senators were actually telling the intelligence community, “Don’t give Trump the full intelligence reports.” Given that, is it possible in 2020 some inside the intelligence community weren’t forthcoming about what was really happening inside China? Were there still deep state operatives who kept the truth from Trump on the corona virus as a set up to make him look bad? Even shutting down one of the most successful economies of all time?

But putting aside the maybe-they-did-maybe-they-didn’t, how is that one computer model, loaded with only guesswork from an rather small university in London manage to shut down the world so fast? Global warming enthusiast and supporters are most likely licking their lips as they see their dream come true—rule by mathematical modelling. But what does it prove? That if outcomes are scary enough people will adhere?

A Peek Over The Wall: China’s Perceptions of Itself and the West

We explore all those questions this week with geopolitical expert, Dr. Tim Ball. We usually have him on to talk Global Warming but this week, we tap into another of his areas of expertise. (Did you know Dr. Ball served in the military and had a top-secret security clearance?) We look at what the communist regime, their strategy, and the Chinese culture and history reveal about their truthfulness.

How China truly looks at the west, combined with how the West looks at China, makes for dynamic ripe for exploitation. We take a good, long look at China and examine how it’s unique geography and communist rule creates the perfect storm for a worldwide problem.

And we haven’t heard the end of “China lied.” Not by a long shot. Instead, things are only going to heat up. On Thursday, news began to break about federal investigators looking into some odd travel patterns by Chinese nationals in the early days of the Wuhan virus. Stay tuned for more on that in the coming weeks.

The Tyranny of Experts

The Other Side of the Virus Scare

Also, we look at how we’re now in an era of governing by computer models that can “prove” anything they want. And enslave societies to whatever the latest “scientific model” puts out. Did we miss the part where we entered The Matrix…?

And when it comes closer to home, not to mention our future, what will things look like on the other side of the virus scare? Clearly, going forward, we need more opinions and data than from just one source. But how do you fight the argument, “If we hadn’t done ______”? We talk with Dr. Ball to look at the impact of the few examples of “What might have happened” and how we can apply those to the U.S. and right here in Oregon.

Especially for next time. Because this new situation has many unintended consequences. And we need to think it through, thoroughly, so that we can be prepared for the next time a pandemic occurs.

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.
