Oregon Fires: The Left’s Policy of ‘Let it Burn’ — Forests and Cities

Oregon Fires: The Left’s Policy of ‘Let it Burn’ — Forests and Cities

Show Summary: For years, the “environmental” Left has cared for the environment by funding itself with billions of taxpayer dollars. But they have done nothing to prevent fires. With it’s “let it burn” policy leading to massive Oregon fires, and its do-nothing approach to riots, at least now we get to see what the Left is all about. Destruction.

Original Air Dates: Sept 19 & 20, 2020 | Alek Skarlatos & Scott McEwen

Thank God we're protecting the owls by not logging = because all these Oregon fires are so much better for our wildlifeThis Week:  We’ve all watched as thousands of Oregonians lose everything.  But we’ve also watched as those who had been spared from the destruction of fires come forward in a truly amazing way to help others—with clothes, food, animal feed, and a place to stay.  We all can be so proud of what every day heroes managed to do.

But we’ve also witnessed the depravity of Gov Kate’s own lack of forest management suddenly warping into blaming climate change for her own inaction.  A cowardly action considering that “let it burn” has been her official forest and fire management policy.  Well, one thing has burned out: people’s faith in her policies.  No More. No more will we listen to them ad nauseum explain how logging is bad when their policies have only left remnants of ashes of a life that once provided for families.  No More.

Alek Skarlatos: Oregon Fires and DeFazio’s Ridiculous Votes on Salvage Logging

This week our guests explain how to climb out of the policies that we will no longer accept.  Alek Skarlatos is first up, who is out-fundraising Peter DeFazio in CD4 (Southwest Oregon).  Ready to assume the helm, Alek has been going around to help evacuees, and talk to those who have built careers on the timber industry. Alek takes us through what needs to change, and why DeFazio’s votes have been so destructive to our forests.

Given all of what has just happened with the Oregon fires, you won’t believe a vote DeFazio just made—nor where he’s been living while his district burns. (Hint: #YachtBoy.)

Scott McEwen: Arsons, Rioters, and more. Time to Charge them with Sedition?

Then we talk with Scott McEwen, who grew up in Eastern Oregon, and is a recovering attorney.  We ask him about the DOJ’s focus on possibly charging officials in Oregon who have done nothing to stop the riots.  We get his thoughts on the FBI immediately taking the position that “it can’t be Antifa setting fires” in Oregon. (Really? How do they know?) Breaking on Thursday, AG Barr told federal prosecutors to begin looking at charging these rioters with sedition. We say, it’s about time!

Thanks again to listener Hazel for letting us know about the ~90 fires in a 24-hour period in Multnomah County — way up from a normal 6 in a 24-hour period. (But the FBI is sure it’s not Antifa.)

Also, people have been directly threatened by Biden supporters — with violence and attacks on their businesses. What can they do? And be sure to listen to his take on the cause of these groups and what needs to happen to make it stop.

    • These riot are not spontaneous. They take years to plan and build and foment. Years of undermining the police and relations between Blacks and Whites. (Like 8 years of Obama…) Newark riots, which killed 26, took 3 years of pot stirring until things exploded when the time was right

    • DeFazio not just supports the New Green Deal but was a co-sponsor of it
  • Some of DeFazio’s positions (via votesmart.org):
    • Supports gun-control (including a 100% ratiug from far-left gun-grab groups)
    • Opposes a border wall
    • Flipflopped on immigration: “In 2005, I voted for a border security bill that put enforcement first by imposing significant penalties on employers who knowingly hire illegal immigrants; requiring employers to verify the legal status of workers with federal officials rather than just glancing at documents presented; making it easier to deport immigrants caught at the border; and improving technology to secure the border. I am opposed to blanket amnesty proposals that would treat every immigrant the same, irrespective of how long they’ve been here. I have voted for increased resources for border patrol agents to enforce immigration laws.” Now he’s against all that.
    • Also flipflopped on carbon tax, saying No to “Do you support allowing energy producers to trade carbon credits under a “cap and trade” system?”
    • Back in 2010, he also said he “voted against the assault weapons ban” voting instead for “a nationwide point of purchase instant criminal background check system”

Air Dates: July 18 & 19, 2020 | Alek Skarlatos & Scott McEwen

This Week: When it comes to American heroes, no one tells their stories better than Clint Eastwood. This week, we have two authors whose books have been made into movies directed by Clint Eastwood: Alek Skarlatos, who helped stop a terrorist on a Paris train. And Scott McEwen, who tells the story of Chris Kyle in American Sniper.

American Stories

There are a lot of American heroes. Some take major roles and go on to great things, leading the nation and shaping its destiny. There are the every day heroes, like our police and first responders. But there’s one thing in common: they always have help from often unsung heroes—every day people.

Carl Jung and other psychologists—most recently, Jordan Peterson—have observed that “our brains are hard-wired for stories.” It’s how we process and make sense of the world. You may have heard of Joseph Campbell’s The Hero with a Thousand Faces, often referred to as “the Hero’s Journey.” In it, he describes how the hero of stories across cultures all have tremendous similarities. Not just the heroes themselves but how the stories are structured. As part of the hero’s story, his or her journey, they have companions and encounters that help them along the way and to give them what they need to defeat the enemy.

Have you ever thought you are part of the story?

Alek Skarlatos: An American Hero

We start our show with Alek Skarlatos, the Republican candidate for Congressional District 4 in Southwest Oregon.  This will be the first of a series of interviews with Alek over the next few months.  In this first interview we want to get to know him, the man, and find out more about his life story and why he’s running for the CD4 seat. Especially now that his race has been deemed by Cook’s Analytics as one of the top races in the nation that is most likely to flip from Democrat to Republican. (Which we’re sure Peter Defazio is well aware of.)

With a tremendous fund-raising machine, that out raised Peter DeFazio by 3 to 1 in the second quarter this year, Alek has raised nearly a million dollars in that quarter alone.  Whereas the 33-year incumbent, Defazio, only raised a little over $300 thousand.

The Right Man at the Right Time

With a lot of momentum on his side, Alek has also has a fascinating story. A story that he’ll talk about as one of three heroes who, on a Paris-bound train, stopped a terrorist killer. Clint Eastwood made their story into a movie and Alek talks about the experience of being in the film.  He also discusses where he grew up, and why DeFazio may have out worn his welcome in his own district.

Alek Skarlatos saved lives that day on the train to Paris. Can he save Oregon’s 4th Congressional district from a career politician who has done nothing but watch as his district became the poorest district in the state?

Be sure to visit Alek’s website, alekfororegon.com, to keep up to date and donate to help him win

By helping Alek win, you can be part of his journey. And you can help give President Trump a House of Representatives that will support him, not attack everything he does. Imagine what we could get done. Real reforms for a better America.

Weapons for Heroes: Scott McEwen

Then we have bestselling author, Scott McEwen, who co-authored American Sniper, the story of Chris Kyle. The book and mo vie became a national and international success telling Chris’s story as America’s top sniper.  Scott discusses what it meant to co-write the book with his friend Chris and what he learned from this American hero.  A relationship that ended up telling one of the greatest American war stories by two men who loved their country.

And at a time when the military needed it most.

Strategies to Push Back against Tyrants

But we can’t have Scott on the show without asking him to wear his attorney hat because there have been some important developments in the ongoing government lockdowns that people might be able to use to stand up and fight back.

And so we ask him about some of the pushback that’s already starting to happen over mandatory mask orders and lock downs with this whole covid response. For example, the masks. Not to mention shutting down businesses based on false data. And of course, there’s the bad data.

Yes, hydroxychloroquine works. No, masks don’t work. See the links below for more

You’ll hear him discuss what he’s seen in California, and his feelings about the freedoms Americans have been asked to walk from.  And here are the weapons: we talk about the potential lawsuits that might materialize because of recent studies that could lead to possible class-action suits against Democrat governors.  Don’t miss his answers.
