This Week: How do we put a value on achieving life’s goals? Do we assess an achievement by personal satisfaction?  By how we’ve helped others?  Or does the value of achieving a life’s goal go deeper?  What if the cost is you won’t give up, no matter what?

For a select few, this is their life. When all seems lost, nothing is working out, and nobody seems to be there to help when you need it most, and you feel physically and mentally broken, you don’t give up. That’s a life goal and struggle that is achieved by America’s best and, for the most part, we’ll never hear about. Navy SEALs who push beyond anything else no matter what they face, they refuse to give up until their mission is completed.

Hell Week and Beyond

Hell Week and Beyond book coverBut to get to that level, they have to go through Hell. Hell Week. The specialized training that the best of the best must find a way to push through.

Scott McEwen’s new book is Hell Week and Beyond: The Making of a Navy SEAL. We interview him to find out what Navy SEALs go through but also the lessons we can learn on how to survive our own personal hell weeks.  You’ll hear about the types of tests and rotations these incredible superheroes-in-the-making need to pass in order to stay with the program—and who instructs them along the way.  And you’ll hear what can wash a SEAL out of the program and what won’t, and why the one thing that they all have in common keeps them there when others give up

Tune in to get insights into how those values can become a part of everybody’s life. Because in America today with the Far Left’s effort to change America into something that is unrecognizable to most people, we also can’t give up – no matter what.

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.

Republican victories in California. So much for that Blue Wave
So much for that “Blue Wave”

Be sure to tune in this week as we look ahead at the November 2018 races by looking at what happened in the 2018 California primaries. Is there hope for California?

And should those of us in deep blue states like Oregon take some hope?

Is there a “Blue Wave” coming?

Will the hate-filled rhetoric from the Left fire up their base?

Will the Democrats defense of MS-13 and embrace of illegal immigration win the Latino vote? This and a lot more on this week’s I Spy Radio Show.

At the end of all this, who’s going to need that other southern border? Oregon? Or California? If California can turn things around and drive the Democrats from office, we may not need that wall on Oregon’s Southern border after all.

But Calif might want one — to keep out Oregonians if we can’t get our act together.
