The Wokeness just isn’t Slowing Down | Corporate and Racist Racism

Show Summary: Corporate wokeness? What happened to making profits for the real owners of a company—the shareholders? And the Biden administration’s outrageous racist policies to fix racism. But that just makes our government peddlers of racism.

Original Air Dates: Mar. 20th & 21st, 2021 | Scott Shepard & Cody Wisniewski

This Week: We know that Oregon is the Petri Dish of Leftist ideology. And in Oregon, many times we conservatives feel there’s a double standard and a double whammy of far-left ideas, policies, and actions hitting us as we watch constitutional rights not only get attacked but many times stripped. This week’s show is all about those double standards, especially when it comes to corporate and racial wokeness.

For those of us who just want America to be America so we can just live in peace and harmony, it becomes tiring to constantly have to watch and react to these never-ending reminders that if we rest, those precious rights go away. But, here we are, Oregon’s legislature once again proves the need for eternal vigilance. Especially when we look at the proposed anti-gun rights bills for 2021.  Five bills that include one giving the Oregon Health Authority oversight of gun storage under the guise of a “health initiative” to stop adolescent suicide.

This, while teenage suicide rates have increased over this past year due to covid lock downs and masks orders. As they say never: let a good crisis go to waste.

Wokeness, Corporate Style

As if that weren’t enough, even when you just want to relax and be entertained, the Left inserts their ideology into the corporations that used to entertain us. Now, they want to indoctrinate. On social justice, on race, on everything. It’s wokeness brought to the corporate world. Or forced on it. We hope. Though we suspect many wholeheartedly embrace it.

Funny how companies used to worry about the bottom line. Stockholders used to worry about the customers and if their company was providing quality service and products.  Not so much anymore where CEOs are convinced corporations are here to save humanity from itself.

Pushing Back on Corporate Wokeness

First up we talk with Scott Shepard of the Free Enterprise Project (a program of the National Center for Public Policy Research), regarding their confrontation with Disney’s CEO at a shareholder meeting. They wanted to discuss Disney’s embrace of far-left policies that counters what conservative stockholders may want.

Especially since Disney fired a conservative actress from a hit show for her tweets, while allowing similar comments from a progressive actor. Fairness and equity? How about just flat out hypocrisy. Which, of course, Disney can’t see.

Mr. Shepard talks to us about how the far-left got a foothold into corporate America and where its heading. Is America setting the legal stage for its own demise? But you can do something about it.

And don’t miss Biden’s in-your-face racist policies: cancelling farm-loan debts for minorities.

Wokeness, 2nd Amendment Style: Grab the Guns!

Then we talk to attorney Cody Wisniewski, who is with the Mountain States Legal Foundation. We talk about the bad news of Oregon’s latest attempts of eroding our 2nd Amendment rights with five new anti-gun rights bills. But we also discuss what is going right in other parts of the country. Including bills being introduced that would greatly increase gun rights and the states that agree.

See Oregon’s list of woke anti-gun bills, below

Oregonians can take heart that constitutional efforts are winning, which makes it worthwhile to keep up the good fight.

Oregon’s anti-gun bills up for consideration

  • SB 554 – limits possession of firearms in public buildings, even if you have a concealed carry license
  • HB 2510 — gives the Oregon Health Authority oversight regarding safe storage of firearms, punishable by fines up to $2,000. Yes. You heard that right. A health agency thinks they should be able to tell you how to store guns in your own home and fine you if you don’t do it their way.
  • HB 3055, regarding carrying when traveling now adds commercial airlines.
  • HB 3268 prohibits possession of weapons in the Capitol — except for police or military. Penalties are five years’ imprisonment, $125,000 fine, or both.
  • HB 25 43 prohibits transfer of firearms until State Police qualify the recipient of said firearm.  Oregon Firearms Federation says this could allow the Oregon State Police to deny a firearm’s transfer forever —  with no explanation or justification.

Original Air Dates: Feb 6th & 7th, 2021 | Scott McEwen & Rob Taylor

This Week: Many of us groan, especially those who live in blue states, when the legislative session is upon us.  With Oregon in the lead for making everything obnoxious by following the mantras for “citizen safety”: keeping your distance, suffocating under hot and uncomfortable face coverings, or locking our children out of enjoying sports and social events. We don’t have to look very hard to figure out why blue state governors are taking some heat.

But not to worry. Who needs fiscal responsibility when the money cavalry is on its way in the $2 trillion Covid Blue State Bailout.

Gruesome Newsome

Could it be that liberal California might actually kick their idiot, er, governor to the curb? As of this writing, over 1.4 million Californians signed the recall petitions. And, surprisingly, Silicon Valley CEO’s joined the rebellion. They sent big donations to the recall effort.

Gasp!

Could it be that blue state governors, and state and federal legislators, are beginning to find out that a free people won’t be tied to their draconian orders? We can hope!

Scott McEwen

Scott McEwen, a former Oregonian who has lived in California for many years. He talks to us about what has happened in California, Newsome’s overreach, and those candidates who are already lining up to run for governor when the recall completes its goal.

Scott also discusses the cancel culture and what is happening with censorship and why.  And of course we can’t let Scott go without getting his take on international security issues, such as China and Korea — and what a Biden administration may do to Middle East peace.  Did you know there was a coup in Myanmar? Yep. Myanmar (aka Burma) just had a coup over, of all things, voter fraud.

Rob Taylor

Next up we welcome back Rob Taylor, who himself has been impacted by an attempt to cancel and censor. Rob says how his e-mail account with MailChimp was permanently suspended for a Patriot Prayer link he had in one e-mail.  No warning. Just cancelled.

Then, to add to the censorship, suddenly far-left radicals in Coos County started calling the station where his radio show airs. They demanded he be cancelled. And they started trying to boycott his advertisers.

Far-left radicals who want only their voices heard but no others. Is that really what they think of as “freedom of speech”?

Rob also catches us up on 2nd Amendments issues here in Oregon, including current legislature bills. And a brand new anti-gun tactic the Left is trying out in our Oregon Petri Dish.

The Real Depth of the Deep State

The Real Depth of the Deep State

Show Summary: Most of us now know about the Deep State. But few realize just how deep the Deep State is. We talk with Dr. Jerome Corsi about what Trump is truly up against. Plus, rock star Ted Nugent, a superstar defender of the Second Amendment on Oregon’s war on guns. And what’s the difference between Patriots and the Deep State anyway?

Air Dates: March 24 & 25, 2018 | Jerome Corsi & Ted Nugent

This Week:  We are in a constant state of war. If you heard last week’s show with a former jihadist, you know there are many forces trying to destroy it from within and without.  It’s a constant barrage against our way of life and the belief of our inalienable rights to freedom. The freedom given to us by our maker and reflected in our 1st and 2nd Amendments.

When it comes to threats to our country, we think of military threats. Countries building up their militaries and nuclear powers.

But there are also hidden threats. Hidden right in our midst.

The Depths of the Deep State

For decades, we’ve had the invisible and sinister attempts to destroy our freedoms by people working within our government agencies to form the Deep State, who go undetected as they dig deeply into our systems with loyalty to themselves and to the government, not the people.  The Deep State will lash out and oppose anyone who wants to deprive the government of power or anyone who wants to return power to citizens.

[wpedon id=”2365″ align=”center”]

Fortunately, our country has many patriots who are rooted in our Constitutional rights and work feverishly in preserving them for all Americans. This week I Spy is honored to have two of those Patriots on our show.

Jerome Corsi: Killing the Deep State

First up we are joined by Dr. Jerome Corsi author of many bestsellers including Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry and Obama Nation. Now, Dr. Corsi has a new book out Killing the Deep State: A Fight to Save President Trump.

Tune in to hear just how deep the roots go in agencies such as the FBI, CIA, and EPA. You’ll hear how those and other agencies are tied to gaining power to destroy America and leave us helpless to fight off their silent coup—and the lengths they’ll go to sabotage President Trump.

Is Jeff Sessions incompetent? Or a lurking menace about to strike the Deep State?

Do members of the Deep State see themselves as patriots?

Ted Nugent: Second Amendment Superstar

Then we’re joined by 1st and 2nd Amendment advocate, and rock star, Ted Nugent.  We talk to him about Oregon’s new gun control laws as he calls out to voters to show up for the governor’s election to turn this state red.  Ted Nugent adds the energy and commitment as he discusses why we can win back our gun rights while reversing draconian legislation approved by far-left Kate Brown.  And in doing so we have a chance to make this state red — and get us into the black.

Stop Oregon Sanctuaries

A handful of lawmakers and Democrat Governor Kate Brown, have turned Oregon into a sanctuary state. Shouldn’t Oregon voters get to decide? You can help get it on the ballot. Head to StopOregonSanctuaries.org. Print, sign, and mail. It’s that simple.

Take Action – Oregon’s Gun Grab Bill

Take Action – Oregon’s Gun Grab Bill

Take Action Briefing

What: Take action to repeal Oregon’s gun confiscation bill
Who: All registered voters in Oregon
How: Sign the petition!  (see below)
When: Before Sept 17, 2017
Why: Oregon passed SB 719, a bill that allows family, household members, or any police officer to confiscate guns on the suspicion that a person might harm themselves or others

 

Petition to Repeal Oregon’s Gun Grab Bill

Innocent until proven guilty. The Oregon’s gun grab bill was signed into law by democrat governor Kate Brown. It allows a family or household member or even the local police to get an ex parte court order (meaning a person isn’t there to defend themselves) to confiscate legally owned guns or any “deadly weapon” on the suspicion the person might harm themselves or someone else. This unconstitutional law must be stopped.

(To find out more about Oregon’s gun grab bill, see our previous show on this topic, featuring former NRA president, David Keene, and talk-radio star, Jayne Carroll of KUIK, 1360AM.)

How You can Help Stop Oregon’s Gun Grab Bill

You can stop this by heading to REPEAL719.com AND SIGN THE PETITION to repeal this unconstitutional bill. Once there, you can download a single-signer petition — just sign it and send it in. Or you can also download or a circulator petition, which has spaces for 10 additional signers. Be sure to follow the simple rules.

More than 60,000 signatures are needed. While the effort to repeal is currently on track, from past experience, we all know those in power will try to invalidate every signature they can. That means they will throw out perfectly valid signatures because they feel something might be wrong. That often translates to needing 10–20% more signatures than the minimum to compensate for government interference.

Other Ways to Sign

Willamette Valley – If you’re heading to the Oregon State Fair, stop by the Republican Party booth or Oregonians for Immigration Reform booth. They have petitions there you can sign in person.

Baker County/La Grande – Labor Day Weekend, Halfway Fair. See the signature gathering booth by the Grandstand. Sept. 9th and 16th there will be signature gatherers at Geiser Pollman Park in Baker City (corner of Campbell & Grove streets). Call Susan Ellis Jones (541-519-5035 or 541-519-0053) if you need assistance.

Grants Pass/Medford — Petitions are available at the Republican office at 311 E Main St, Medford, OR 97501. Call (541) 770-5277 if you need information or directions.

Oregon’s Gun Confiscation Bill

Oregon’s Gun Confiscation Bill

Show Summary: It’s all about the 2nd Amendment this week. We talk with David Keene, a former president of the National Rifle Association about Oregon’s gun confiscation bill, Senate Bill 719A. And don’t miss the shocking story of a man who faces a 30-year jail sentence for exercising his right to self defense.

We often call Oregon “the Petri Dish” for the Left. If they can pass it here, they’ll try it somewhere else. We’re an experimental lab for Leftist policies.

This is especially true of the Second Amendment. But recently the attack has been ramped up. The focus of this week’s show is SB-719A, a gun confiscation bill that was passed out of the judiciary committee and on to the senate, where it is likely to pass — unless common sense Oregonians stop it by contacting their senators now. It is due for a vote this Monday, May 1st!

Oregon’s Gun Confiscation Bill: SB 719A

Sen. Brian Boquist, a Republican from Western Oregon, sponsored SB-868. But it met with such a huge public outcry they copied and pasted it into SB 719 (hence the “A”) in a process typically called “gut and stuff.”

SB 719A would create a so-called “Extreme Risk Protection Order” (ERPO) at the request of family member or household member—or even a law enforcement officer. All they need to do is claim the other person is a “risk” to themselves or others. Get this:

  • The order can be obtained ex parte, meaning the defendant can have their guns taken away without even being in court
  • The court order can be obtained without any allegations of criminal behavior
  • A person can have their rights taken away simply based on someone else’s “feelings” that the defendant might be a danger to themselves or another person—either now or in the “foreseeable future.”

The Show

We talk with David Keene, former president of the NRA and currently the Opinion Editor of the Washington Times about this terrible bill and how you can lose your rights with no due process.

Tune in to hear how “compassion” led a Republican senator to sponsor this bill and get it through committee. Tune in to hear how he was used by the anti-gun lobby. Tune in to hear how Oregon’s gun grab bill will allow a family or household member or even the local police officers to get a court order to confiscate your guns or any “deadly weapons”.

The Case of Mike Strickland

And then don’t miss an example of an Oregon court going way too far to punish a gun owner. Listen to hear why Mike Strickland, who never fired a shot, is facing more than 30 years of jail. We talk with Jayne Carroll, host of the Jayne Carroll Show on KUIK-1360am in Portland, about this shocking case — shocking in the sense of how far the politics of Portland have gone to suppress political views they disagree with.

(See the videos, below)

Of course, all of this makes perfect sense because by taking away our 2nd Amendment rights we also lose the ability to protect our 1st Amendment rights. What better way to carve away at our freedom of speech but to do it under the guise of “protecting us” by taking away guns from someone who might hurt someone in the “foreseeable future.” Yes, that is actual language from SB 719A.

Meanwhile, Oregon’s lawmakers are looking the other way, away from groups like Black Lives Matter who scream, yell, show up in masks, do millions in damage to property owners and businesses, shut down roads and highways, and create havoc for law-abiding citizens. But a gun owner is the one who is punished?

You’ll want to hear how easy it was to have Mike’s case go from a single misdemeanor all the way to 21 felony counts.  Don’t miss Jayne’s look at what is really going on and the assault the Far Left is having on Oregonian’s freedoms.
