Air Dates: Aug 22nd & 23rd, 2020 | Kim Hermann, General Counsel for Southeastern Legal Foundation

Like in so many Democrat-controlled states, Oregon’s mandates and “emergency orders” have given many Oregonians pause, as we decide what are true “safety issues,” and which are actually eroding our constitutional rights. Especially when the orders consist of being locked into our homes or locked out of our favorite businesses. Or being told you have to wear masks, to the point of absurdity. (Recently, a Wyoming department even mandated people had to wear a mask, even if they were at home, alone, on a teleconference.) And all of that after the pretense of being falsely told that these orders would last only “15 days to flatten the curve.” Five months ago.

Mandates and Endless Orders

We’re told we must wear masks to enter a business. Or stand 6 feet apart. Or both. We can’t hug or shake hands. And you certainly can’t have any interaction, like churches or actually non-violent protests that might threaten the State’s power of telling us how to behave and think. Because, without exception, we are supposed to think that everything the state and our ‘dear leaders” tells us is for our own good. And cannot be questioned, opposed, or go unfollowed. Even if you believe some of these orders are immaterial, immoral, or even illegal. Not to mention unscientific. But, don’t you dare ask (or think) such things.

Where are All the Lawyers?

And what’s very interesting throughout this questionable time of panic-demic, we’ve wondered where are all the lawyers? Normally we would see a bazillion of lawsuits except now it seems many lawyers have been quiet. Why?

Well, it turns out there are some valid reasons and we discuss it on the show this weekend with Kim Hermann, General Counsel for Southeastern Legal Foundation.

Southeastern Legal Foundation: Fighting Back

This show is about defending our rights but also about taking the fight to the government that is abandoning their responsibilities—while taking away rights.

Could it be that the Left may have found the Achilles Heel to take away our constitutional rights? Just claim a health emergency? And you have no rights? Democrats who are controlling these blue states are keeping the voters powerless, as they use such hammers as OSHA. OSHA tells private businesses that if masks are not worn by their customers, OSHA will shut the business down. Is that legal? We discuss that too.

A Doctor Gets Attacked for Standing Up for Truth

Dr. Steve LaTulippe, a medical doctor in the Willamette Valley has come under attack. Why? Because he has dared to point out on social media that the mandates are causing their own set of problems. pointed out that the mask orders and other mandates are causing their own set of problems.

Developing: We’re also hearing that hospital doctors, nurses, and other workers are being told—as a condition of employment—not to talk about health problems that result from mandates and state orders. So the state orders people to wear masks and stay home. And then they’re also ordering people not to to talk about the problems that result from those orders? Got it. Totalitarianism comes to Oregon.

Standing Up to Mandate Abuse & Liability

If you’re forced to shut down, who’s liable for the lost income? Who’s liable for forcing people into masks that now have shown to cause headaches, rashes, and a host of problems. Should, or can, the state, be held liable for the problems it created?

Where are the Lawyers on this? Where are all the class-action lawsuits?

Follow our guest, Kim Hermann, on Twitter @kimmiehermann

And what about those states that haven’t followed shutdowns, such as South Dakota, which has large cities, yet their number of deaths is lower than blue states that have locked down.

And what about contact tracing? How does that not go against the 4th Amendment?

Or what can you do if someone from the state shows up on your doorstep, demanding a cheek swab? Or wants to put you in quarantine?

And what about mandatory vaccines?

We turn to Kim Hermann and the Southeastern Legal Foundation, to get some answers of what rights we have and what to do about the ones we want protected. Does the Constitution trump local emergency orders? Or is a governor, like Gov Kate, allowed to indiscriminately continue with emergency orders, without legislative oversight, and no determination of when the orders end, or what will happen when they do.

Fighting Back

You’ll want to hear this week’s show and the fights that SLF has already taken up on college campuses that opened the doors to using Covid reporting forms to shut down organizations they may not agree with politically. Listen to Kim explain what they’re doing to protect student’s rights, and what SLF, lawyers, and citizens can do to help fight against these blue state, and out-of-control governors.

It’s definitely time for some answers and maybe it’s time for some actions. If you’re being ordered to be silent, it’s time not to be. If your business is being threatened, it’s past time to speak up. Or all of your rights are at stake.

A Lifeboat of Sanity in a Sea of Panic | Corona Virus and the Markets

A Lifeboat of Sanity in a Sea of Panic | Corona Virus and the Markets

Show Summary: There’s a lot of panic about the Corona Virus. Don’t give into panic. Good information kills panic, and we’ve got some for you. Including some really good news.

Original Air Dates: Mar, 14 & 15, 2020 | Kevin Freeman

This Week: There’s been a huge selloff on the stock market this past week due in large part over panic and concern about the Corona virus. How is it that, with little data, and over 70,000 people who have already recovered, people, governments, and financial markets are responding with borderline hysteria?

As our host, Mark Anderson, has so aptly quoted many times during the financial hysteria, is the line from It’s a Wonderful Life. It’s where there’s a run on the local savings and loan with all the town folk panicking when Jimmy Stewart’s character, George Baily says, “Potter isn’t selling. Potter’s buying!”

Potters, or their modern-day equivalents  like George Soros—are always happy to take advantage of hysteria in the markets.

Don’t give in to it.

Corona Virus Panic and the Stock Markets

It’s amazing. To watch Twitter or Facebook, it’s almost as if people want to panic. They spread hysterical news coverage. But don’t want to hear good news. And actual good news is lost in the maelstrom of panic.

For example, here’s some good news you didn’t hear in the mainstream media: there is already a vaccine for the Corona Virus. Yes. Earlier this week, we got word that a Pentagon-funded company already has the vaccine, will be ready to go as soon as the FDA approves, and can make up to 10 million doses daily in their plant alone. And, the really amazing thing is that they managed to develop it a mere 20 days after receiving the virus’s genetic sequence. This isn’t some incredible virus that will wipe us out if they can develop a vaccine in only 20 days.  (Here, read the story for yourself.) And what’s been the response?  Nothing, but more panic.

And, of course, there’s been no place more prone to Corona Virus panic than the stock markets.

Sorting out the Corona Virus Panic

So we invited Kevin Freeman to the show, a world-renowned expert on financial terrorism and economic warfare, to discuss just what it is we’re seeing in the current market sell off, and why.

Kevin, whose Economic War Room show can been seen on The Blaze TV, gives us insights on not only the problems, but also the strength of the US economy.  He talks about Trump’s strategies, and why it’s okay to stop the panic and feel good about our nations, financial position, and outlook.

Good News! Johns Hopkins, which has the “official” Corona Virus Map, also ranks America as the #1 country in the world for preparedness and being able to handle the Corona Virus

When it comes to the Corona Virus, it’s Simple: Don’t Panic

Worried about CoronaVirus? Don’t be. It’s okay to be concerned, but don’t fall into worry. And definitely don’t give in to panic.

That said, while you may not be panicked, be aware that others may be panicked. Here’s some things to do:

Corona Virus / CoVid19 Preventative Measures

  • Wash your hands! We can’t stress this enough. Simple hot water and soap kill the Corona Virus. Alcohol wipes and hand sanitizer is great but there’s a reason. Here’s why: Hot water and soap It turns out viruses like Covid19 have a “skin” of fat. Hot water + soap breaks down the fat, effectively popping the balloon, and the whole thing falls apart like a house of cards. Good thread explaining it, here.

Signs & Symptoms of Corona Virus

The first thing to do is: not panic. But if you think you might have COVID19, here are some signs and symptoms:

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), symptoms of common human Corona viruses are:

  • runny nose, sore throat, headache, fever, cough, and a general feeling of being unwell.
  • Human Corona viruses can sometimes cause lower-respiratory tract illnesses, such as pneumonia or bronchitis. These symptoms are more common in people with cardiopulmonary disease, people with weakened immune systems, infants, and older adults.

Some other Corona Virus / COVID19 tips from the CDC and Johns Hopkins:

  • Stock up – Have 14 days of food and supplies on hand in case you’re quarantined. You may not be sick. Your family may not be sick. But some panic-stricken politicians, desperate to show they’re doing something are shutting down some areas. And 14 days is the norm. 
  • Did we mention wash your hands and face with hot water and soap? Heat  and good ol’ soap dissolves the fatty “skin” of the virus.
  • Avoid crowds; practice “social distancing”. Maybe if you’re a church leader, now is a good time to put a live stream on your church website so people can still attend, even if they’re not in the building. It could be a real opportunity to expand your audience and your reach.

Always look for opportunities!

Warning: More CoVid19 Panic is on the Way

We want to warn you. in the next couple of weeks, you will see another round of media-induced panic. Why? As more Corona Virus test kits hit the market, 1,000s or 10s of 1,000s of people will all  “suddenly” have the virus. Just like that.

Show Summary: This week, it’s about who isn’t going to jail—but should be. We look at the curious case of Andrew McCabe and why isn’t he going to jail for lying to investigators—the same crime that sent so many others to jail. And just when you thought your opinion of the FBI couldn’t go any lower, it turns out they may have been more involved in spying on candidate Trump than previously known.

Original Air Dates: Feb. 22 & 23, 2020 | Scott McEwen & John Kiriakou

This Week: Will there ever come a time that we Americans will watch as the blindfold of justice slip back over the eyes of Lady Justice?  While this should be the hope of all Americans, sometimes it doesn’t feel like we will. Especially when we watch Inspectors Generals time and again recommend criminal prosecution against the Deep State—only have the Department of “Justice” decline prosecution.

So we’re left wondering—what it will take to actually see equal justice under the law? And we’re really wondering why Andrew McCabe (who lied to Congress and investigators) escapes prosecution—only to see the book get thrown at Roger Stone (who lied to Congress and investigators). Why the difference?

Is it really just as simple as a different justice for Trump supporters vs. Hillary supporters?

It’s time for a little venting.

The McCabe Case: Prosecutor v. Defense

Tackling that, we talk with Scott McEwen, co-author of American Sniper whose newest book, The Trigger Mechanism (book #2 in the Camp Valor series), just hit the shelves. Scott is also a “recovering attorney” who personally knows many in the DOJ, including some in upcoming prosecutions. He also understands many of the nuances of some of these trials—or non-trials.

Order Trigger Mechanism via Amazon, part of the Camp Valor series (also available from Amazon

So far, only Trump associates get prosecuted. But meanwhile, Obama or Clinton associates skate.  Scott analyzes the McCabe non-prosecution from a prosecutor’s stand point. For example, were there legitimate reasons not to pursue a clear case of lying? The very crime others have, in fact, gone to jail over.

And what about from a defense standpoint? Did McCabe have something to scare off investigators? Scott discusses the strategy behind these cases, and his thoughts of what’s left for McCabe.

We then take a fascinating look at the Coronavirus and what might really be going on in China.  The official narrative from China is that things are under control. Except there is simple, basic fact that may have revealed things are clearly not okay.

And of course, don’t miss the news on Scott’s new book, from his Camp Valor series and some of the exciting developments yet to come.

McCabe Lied – So Why No Jail?

Then we go to former CIA whistleblower John Kiriakou, who was one of those people who went to jail for lying to investigators. You can imagine he’d like to vent a little about McCabe not being prosecuted for lying to investigators.

John has some special insights into all of this. When he was with the CIA, John knew CIA chief John Brennan and some of the others that are possibly caught up in Durham’s probe. John gives great insight to how and why decisions were made and the legal problems some of these officers may face.

New FBI Revelations

He also gives us some very interesting background on Christopher Steele, who he worked with when Steele first worked as a foreign agent with the CIA. And, just when you thought your opinion about the FBI couldn’t get any lower, there is a new report that revealed some hidden details in the Inspector General’s FISA Abuse Report. Here’s a hint: the FBI was even more involved with spying on candidate Trump than previously known. Could this new report reveal the real reason why the FBI really fired Christopher Steele?

You’re not going to want to miss this one.
