Show Summary: Oregon Democrats like democracy — until they don’t get their way. At which point they go full-blown Socialist and want to fine, or even jail, their political opponents. It’s time to fight back against the tyranny of one-party rule in Salem.

Original Air Dates: Feb 29 & Mar 1, 2020 | Kevin Hoar, ORP Communications Director

This Week: Politics isn’t easy and sometimes causes people to become warriors when they would rather be negotiators.  But in Oregon’s case, it is impossible to negotiate with the Oregon Democrat super-majority which has decided Republicans have no rights. To object, complain, or offer suggestions.

Oregon Democrats: Full-Blown Socialism

The reality is, elected Democrats don’t want Republican input. They just want Republican bodies in the House or Senate so the Oregon Democrats can pass whatever they want.

So the Republicans, unwelcome and unnecessary (other than being a warm body) have taken the only step left to them: to walk out and deny Democrats a quorum.

Now, in return, Oregon Democrats have taken the extreme step to issue subpoenas to demand that Republicans return.

Oregon Republicans Doing their Job

Democrats are now trying to claim Republicans aren’t “doing their job.” But Republicans are doing their job. Because they were elected to represent their constituents, who are opposed to cap and trade. It is not the Republican’s job to let Democrats pass whatever they want.

The rights the minority party, Oregon’s Republicans, are exercising is to use any legal means possible, to stay true to their oath in office to stand up for their constituents.  It is the Republicans’ job to represent those who vote them in—and protect them against a Democrat agenda that will change Oregon for decades.

This is what the tyranny of the majority looks like. Imagine the damage they will do if they get any more power. It must stop.

The ORP: Oregon Republican Party

That’s why our show this week is so very important with so much at stake.  This week our guest is Kevin Hoar, Communications Director of the ORP.  The show comes on the heels of Thursday night’s vote for the House Democrats to issue subpoenas’ to drag the House Republicans back to session.

And the elected Oregon Democrats repeatedly demonstrated in this session they cannot be trusted with power. Republicans need to remove them from office.

It’s time to come forward, step up, and get involved.  It’s not enough to just be a part of Timber Unity. So it’s time to gear up and take action. There is only one party now that is standing up for rural Oregonians. There is only one party standing up for everyday Oregonians. Or for Oregonians’ businesses. And it’s most definitely not the Democrats.

Fight Back. Get Involved

It is time to end one-party rule in Oregon. To do that, Republicans need to take back at least enough seats to break the super-majority. Even better, take back at least one of the chambers, perhaps even both. And you can help.

We’ll introduce you to the Oregon Republican Party, what they do. We talk about how to get involved. How you can get involved in campaigns, support the Republican efforts. Or even run for office yourself. And we also talk about some of what’s going on in the background, of Democrats actions, that is going under reported.

Because this is the year for people to get engaged. And fight back and stand up against the Democrat agenda of socialism and tyranny as they try to politically strangle good people into saying nothing.

Show Summary: Timber Unity 2020 rally is Thursday, February 6 at 10 a.m. This week we give you the latest — attempts by Gov. Brown to sabotage things, what elected Dems really think about rural people, and some intellectual ammo to take with you to the rally.

Air Dates: February 1 & 2, 2020 | Angelita Sanchez & Chuck Wiese

This Week: Yes, the fight is on.  Like two bulls staring at each other from across the arena, Gov Kate and her far-left, legislative henchmen are attempting to stare down Timber Unity and the participants (or what Kate should remember are voters—you know, the people she serves). Governor Kate wants to institute a crippling carbon tax, based on fake science, to control Oregonians and Oregon businesses by taxing fuel and energy and “undesirable” industries, which will increase costs for almost anything purchased within the state.

Timber Unity: Taking the Fight to Salem

Timber Unity is not only saying NO, but is part of a rising wave of anger from more and more Oregonians. They come together this week to stand up against the extreme and unnecessary legislation. Especially as they learn more and more about what Salem Democrats like Peter Courtney really think about them and their way of life.

And don’t miss Gov. Kate Brown’s attempts to sabotage Timber Unity.

Oregonians are waking up to what’s at stake that if this carbon tax is allowed to go through and the devastation it will have on businesses and rural life.

And because of that, Oregonians are grabbing hold of the issue and Timber Unity is bringing together truckers, loggers, and farmers to push back in an exciting event being held this Thursday, February 6th.  Spokesperson for Timber Unity, Angelita Sanchez, joins us this week on I Spy Radio to give us insights into what is driving them to storm Salem’s castle. She’ll also give the latest updates on how the day will unfold with the truckers’ caravan, expected speakers, activities in the capitol, food, and time of events.

Last time she joined us, she shared what Peter Courtney said that so enflamed their anger against the cap and trade legislation. Do not miss this week when she elaborates even more on what you said. It will get your blood boiling.

Standing Up to Global Warming Alarmism

Then get a little more intelligence on what drives the anti-carbon craze of the legislators: “Climate Change.” Chuck Wiese is a meteorologist and well-known global warming debunker who knows the faux science behind the carbon tax push. You’ll come away with a better understanding of the issue and why any carbon tax is little more than a money-laundering scheme. He also reveals what a carbon tax will do to Oregon, why it’s a waste and not necessary, and why it should be a matter for voters to decide and not decided by one party at the legislature.

Oregon may have been sleepy at getting people out to vote in 2018 but Timber Unity has awakened the proverbial sleeping giant. Don’t miss this week. It will awaken your own inner giant to help you stand up to what far-left environmentalists are attempting to do to our beautiful state.

Show Summary: Last year, Republican senators walked out. This year, Oregon’s Democrats are determined to push through a carbon tax. Timber Unity stands for what’s right It’s pretty simple—cap & trade? NO. Timber Unity? YES

Original Air Dates: Jan. 11 & 12, 2020 | Angelita Sanchez of Timber Unity & Dr. Bob Zybach

This Week: Here at I Spy, we are completely against any form of a carbon tax or a carbon cap & trade scheme.

A Carbon Tax: Wrong Thinking

Why is a carbon tax a bad idea? In the first segment of this weekend’s show, host Mark Anderson, thoroughly walks you through the problems of how and why a carbon cap & trade scheme damages an economy and how it violates normal free-market forces.

A carbon tax not only doesn’t work for what they claim it’s supposed to do, but it places an increasing financial burden on citizens. California is a prime example of what happens as its citizens and businesses flee the state. One report has shown tens of thousands of businesses fled California, directly because of California’s carbon tax, in a process known in political circles as “leakage.” Basically, leakage is “How many businesses will leave the state if we pass this bill?”

Also, don’t miss “all you need to know” about “global warming.” It’ll give you some ammunition to use in the coming fight against Oregon’s carbon tax, cap & trade bill.

Timber Unity

Government bureaucrats and far-left politicians who support cap & trade seem to believe they know better than the people they’re supposed to represent. Last year the people came together to put their foot down.

The Timber Unity rally on the capitol steps drew together people in rural areas who were tired of latte-sipping liberals looking down their noses at hicks from the country not knowing liberals are just saving the planet. (I wonder how they think the coffee they’d sipping got to their little coffee house?)

Timber Unity Rally Round 2: Timber Unity’s rally to again fight back against Oregon Democrats’ disastrous carbon tax will be on Thursday, February 6th, 2020. Tentative start time is 10:00. See below for more details, contact, info, and more.

 

Oregon’s Carbon Tax: New and Improved? Hardly.

Even though Salem’s Democrat legislators are trying to sell the “new and improved” carbon bill as something that would only impact people in the city (for now) it’s simply not true. Because more than 80% of all Oregonian communities have their only means of goods shipped, in or out, are only by truck.

Be sure to tune in to hear the mindset of how these politicians feel about rural areas and who they pretend to protect. What Senator President, Peter Courtney told Timber Unity rally participants right from the start will make your jaw drop.

Oh, and remember how Knute Buehler promised a carbon tax when he was running for governor of Oregon? Here he is suddenly for it now that he’s running for much more conservative CD 2

Good News for Oregon’s Forests?

Then we bring back our timber expert, Dr. Bob Zybach, who continues the conversation on the downfalls of a carbon tax and cap & trade schemes. We hear about how the law negatively impacts our forest management processes, a vital economic impact to Oregon. You’ll get a laugh over OSU’s latest scheme to save the planet. (Insert massive eye roll.)

And he discusses California’s dilemmas with its carbon cap and trade scheme (hint: it’s not working) along with the wildfire issue in Australia and the nonsense of some blaming global warming.

This week it’s all about stopping the nonsense of politicians attempting to fill their tax coffers while claiming it’s “for the environment.”

FBI Destroys Itself | IG Report: Lies, Forgery and Errors in Quest to Spy on Trump

Show Summary: John Solomon and Scott McEwen weigh in on the IG Report. Horowitz finds the FBI committed gross errors, lies, forgery, and process violations in its FISA warrant and Crossfire Hurricane investigation. The only thing missing was a signed confession. What’s next?

Original Air Dates: Dec. 14 & 15, 2019 | John Solomon & Scott McEwen

This Week:  Last week Adam Schiff and then later, Jerry Nadler, held committee hearings that filled with witnesses who had witnessed nothing, but were very willing to pass along gossip.  But it turns out they weren’t the only storytellers. It turns out that’s the same technique the FBI officers were willing to give to FISA judges—a load of fiction.

IG Report: FISA Warrant Based on Lies

Judges on the FISA court assumed they were receiving the highest form of intelligence. But they were misled. Purposefully. And this from the FBI, which used to be considered the premiere and most-respected law-enforcement agency in the world. But no longer.

As Inspector General Horowitz testified, we found out that FBI officers were willing to lie and even forge information to get warrants against innocent people.  Using gossip as evidence, people like Carter Page, who not only professed his innocence regarding contacts he made with Russians but had absolute evidence that he was telling the truth.

And the FBI knew it. At the time they submitted the FISA warrant application. But they kept that proof of innocence hidden, out of sight and away from the FISA judges—the very people who are supposed to safeguard our constitutional rights.  Instead, the FBI buried evidence to obtain warrants as a way to try to make then-candidate and then President Trump appear guilty or willing to “collude with the Russians”. Or both.

IG Report: FBI set off a Firestorm of Lies

And let’s not forget, the FISA warrant to spy on Trump and subsequent Crossfire Hurricane “investigation” has led directly to the Democrats desperate impeachment hoax. The FISA warrant and investigation became the “evidence” of Trump working with the Russians to steal the election. The mainstream media repeated the lies often enough (thank you, Goebbels) until people believed it.

And this lie became the narrative has become the foundation for impeachment.

Speaking of Impeachment

Make no mistake, the Democrats have tried desperately to distract from the IG Report by announcing they would be drafting articles of impeachment of President Trump. On the same day the IG report came out.

Although wasn’t that odd? The Democrats, who claimed there is overwhelming evidence to convict Trump of high crimes and misdemeanors, a man so dangerous to the country, they had no choice but to impeach—a man so dangerous that merely an hour later, they also announced they liked his USMCA trade deal and would pass it. What?

Talk about surreal.

John Solomon on IG Report: FISA High Crimes and Misdemeanors

About the only real “high crimes and misdemeanors” in Washington DC were committed by the FBI. Because they knowingly lied to the FISA court.

Award-winning journalist, John Solomon, has been doggedly following the FBI corruption and FISA abuse story, to the point that many in the mainstream “media” mocked him as a conspiracy theorist. But not any longer.

We talk to John to get his insights on both the IG report and the Horowitz testimony.  He analyzes the incredible extent that Horowitz’s investigation uncovered and where it goes from here.  He also gives us some insight into Schiff’s collection of phones such as Nunes, and even his own—and what courses of action John will be taking.

Scott McEwen: Examining IG Report through the eyes of a Lawyer

Then best-selling author, Scott McEwen, joins us. He puts on his attorney hat as we sift through how the FISA court was used, why we may not be hearing from those judges, and his reaction to the abuse of power.

Scott also has the second book from his Camp Valor series, The Trigger Mechanism, coming out in February next year but can be pre-ordered now. It might be intended for teens but, trust us, the Camp Valor series is a great read for adults too. (Have you checked out our I Spy Radio store lately? There’s a book for practically everyone on your Christmas list!)

Don’t miss this week’s show – the hour will fly by.

After Devastating IG Report, FBI and Others at a Reckoning Point

Horowitz said that his report should not make anyone feel vindicated; after this week’s show, you’ll hear how they’re not only not vindicated, but maybe some should be start planning what to take with them for a long stay in jail.

Seriously.

But bad elements at the FBI acting outside the law, lying to courts, and creating false investigations isn’t new. Check out this video from nearly two decades ago.

Jerome Corsi: Impeachment and New Ukraine Revelations

Dr. Jerome Corsi successfully fought back against the Mueller probe by refusing to cooperate. The FBI had tried to get him to sign a “confession” that would have suborned perjury—just to get Trump. Yes. Our own Department of Justice wanted to break the law to try to convict Trump, who didn’t break the law.

But Corsi took a stand and said no. Now he’s fighting back and updates us on the status of his counter-suit against the FBI.

Jerome Corsi's book Coup d' EtatAnd then, in the middle of the Democrats Grand Impeachment, the news broke about indictments in Ukraine for corruption—by the Democrats, including Hunter Biden, Joe Biden, and others. Perhaps even Adam Schiff. Are the Democrats about to face justice? Finally?

Dr. Cosrsi has some books out as well. See the Links & Info section for his books as well as his solution to the border wall problem.

Burgess Owens: Retaking a Congressional Seat

Super Champion and long-time I Spy Radio guest, Burgess Owens announced that it’s time to take a stand. By running for Congress.

In 2018, a lot of Republicans had turned anti-Trump. Why? Because they believed the lies told by the Democrat-controlled media. That Trump colluded with the Russians. That Trump was an agent of the Russians. And on and on.

And because she bought the lie, Mia Love lost her Congressional seat—thereby paving the way for Speaker Nancy and her Impeachment Circus.

But as we now know (well a lot of us knew already) that the Russia-collusion narrative spun by the media was a lie. And that’s why Burgess Owens wants to take that seat. It’s time to have a congressman who wants to fight with the President and get rid of do-nothing Dems who just want to fight against the President.

If you want a Congressman who will fight for the President and for America, donate to help Burgess across the goal line. He needs your support. And you don’t even have to be in Utah. Visit Burgess4Utah.com to donate or volunteer.

Air Dates: Nov. 2nd & 3rd, 2019 | John Solomon and John Kiriakou

This week: To many political observers, the Democrats have done the proverbial “jump the shark” by relentless pushing a fake impeachment before even all the facts are known. And once again, they’re relying on their triad of allies:  disinformation, the Democrat “mainstream media”, and the ill-informed everyday voters (thanks to disinformation and the Democrat mainstream media).

But why? Why rush into a fake impeachment when they know it will fail in the senate? And why did their much vaunted “whistle blower” suddenly panic over a benign phone call between two presidents? One word: Ukraine.

Ukraine: Ground Zero of Corruption and Collusion

To understand why the Democrats pulled the trigger, you have to understand the panic behind what happened on the Ukraine phone call.  We talk with John Solomon, formerly of The Hill and now a Fox News contributor, about the origins of the Ukraine corruption.

It starts with Obama and Biden in the wake of the 2014 Ukraine uprisings. We talk with John Solomon about the Obama administration’s odd maneuvers, essentially creating the perfect storm — not to fight corruption but for corruption. Including setting up an anti-corruption bureau that became the cloak for corruption.

Another Deep State Ploy?

One of the more interesting stories John Solomon has exposed was a secretive meeting at the Obama-Biden White House. Biden had invited the top Ukrainian prosecutors to the White House to discuss corruption.

But what it turned into was actual corruption: White House official urging the Ukraine prosecutors to drop their investigation into Burisma. And to re-open a dormant corruption case into a a political operative who would later be pushed into the Trump campaign. We talk it over with John Solomon and the follow up with John Kiriakou. Was this yet another example of guilt engineering? Much like we’ve seen with George Papadopoulos. (and as John Kiriakou himself experienced.)

More Collusion by the Democrats

As we researched this week’s show and the collusion and corruption centered around Ukraine, it became abundantly clear we are at the mere tip of the tip of the iceberg. There is a lot more coming in the following weeks. John Solomon has been a one-man workhorse to expose this corruption. Be sure to take a look at the links below.

Ukraine as Impeachment Trigger

The Democrats’ actions aren’t reasonable or normal in the wake of what happened. Trump is looking into corruption. And for that they want to impeach him?

The Democrat’ actions can only be explained by sheer panic and desperation. Why are they so panicked over a phone call about corruption. If there was corruption by Joe Biden, shouldn’t they want to get to the bottom of things?

Instead, they’ve turned this into Trump allegedly abusing the power of his office by going after a political opponent.

It begs the question: just how many Democrats were profiting off the corruption in Ukraine?

The Ukraine Whistle Blower

Here’s what other sites have said about the whistle blower. He’s a Biden operative. He was formerly fired by the White House for leaking. Not to mention spreading false stories about Putin ordering Trump to do things. He is a registered democrat. And his name is Eric Ciaramella.

We talk with an actual whistle blower, John Kiriakou, about the Democrats secret whistle blower. John actually went to jail over his whistle blowing, as a patriot. You can imagine John has a lot to say about this guy who has been sniping from the deepest shadows of the Deep State.

This week: We continue our discussion with Ron Rychlak, co-author of Disinformation. We’ll talk with him about one of the greatest tools to defeat a disinformation campaign: recognizing it. As we said last week, plots hatched in darkness die in sunlight.

Disinformation in Action

We’ll start by discussing the current disinformation campaign: the latest attack on Donald Trump to ‘re-frame” him as a traitor to his country rather than what he is, a patriot fighting the corruption that runs so deep in our own government.

But people who are about to be exposed are going to fight back. And that’s exactly what we’re seeing now. But the question is, who is running this?

Be sure to tune in to hear the telltale signs of a disinformation campaign as we’re seeing right now. And don’t miss our discussion with Ron about fighting back against disinformation.

You’ll come away with some tools of your own to recognize it. And in the case of disinformation, knowledge truly is power.

Disinformation by Ron Rychlak book coverBe sure to check out Ron’s terrific book. It is truly an eye-opener about what is happening today as this Soviet-era propaganda tool is still being used today — right here in America

After we speak with Ron, we switch gears a bit to discuss how disinformation isn’t just about attacking and re-framing political or other high-profile targets. It can also be used to push policy.

Applied Disinformation

When it comes to policy, there’s probably no greater example of applied disinformation than Climate Change. Why? Because it’s based on falsehood that’s not easily disproved. But wait, there’s more.

We talk with Jonathan Williams, the chief economist at ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council. First, we start with some typical disinformation when it comes to economics. For example, economic policies that sound like they should be true but aren’t. Like “if we raise taxes, the state will get more money.”

Global Warming: the Biggest Disinformation Campaign of All Time

Climate Change, formerly “global warming,” formerly “global cooling,” is a prime example of a hoax masquerading, through the tools of disinformation, as a legitimate science. With the tools from our first guest, you’ll recognize how and why it’s all a giant disinformation campaign.

But you’ll also hear how this disinformation becomes the basis of damaging economic policy. Like California not touching the forests (that are now burning) and pushing through “green energy” instead of common-sense energy programs. And you’ll hear how it violates common economic principles via government control.

Government control is only a good thing when it’s about controlling government.

This Week: The D’s keep giving us the same story over and over and we’re supposed to think there’ll be a different result. Except we’re not the ones who are crazy. Instead, we’re on to them. So disinformation in the age of Schiff and Pelosi just doesn’t work as well as it used to. Maybe it’s because they’re so bad at it. Or some of the swamp that has been relied on has actually been sent packing. Let’s hope for the latter.

The Democrats Desperation

Camp Valor book cover by bestselling author, Scott McEwenOn the heels of Trump’s record-low-unemployment-number-blow-out (a FIFTY-year low!), American’s have a lot to be grateful for. And one of those things to be grateful for are the Americans who have studied and zeroed in on just how the political games are being played. And are now well-armed to fight back. After all, if we don’t understand ‘em, we can’t beat ‘em.

Order Scott’s book, Camp Valor! Great for your kids and grand kids. For the next generation of patriots. Trust us. This will be a movie some day. Check out all of Scott’s books in our store page

Plots Hatched in Darkness, Die in Sunlight

Disinformation by Ron Rychlak book coverWe start with bestselling co-author of American Sniper, Scott McEwen, who has carefully kept his eyes focused on the Democrats’ attempt at a presidential coup. You’ll hear him describe what Pelosi’s attempts have led to, how they’re exposing themselves, and why he feels it’s not so much an impeachment attempt but is actually an unlawful takeover of the presidency.

Buy Ron Rychlak’s terrific book, Disinformation.  If you want to understand the Democrats’ desperate impeachment ploy, read this book. Media rollouts, staging, re-framing, and more.

As the Democrats level every unfounded and false claim they can, even the Washington Post awarded Schiff four Pinocchio’s for his dishonest rendition of Trump’s phone call transcript. And don’t miss Scott’s new book, Camp Valor’s sequel, in February 2020!

Telltale Signs of Disinformation

Disinformation - Mark Twain it is easier to fool people than to convince them they've been fooledThen, Ron Rychlak, co-author of Disinformation, helps us take a look at secretive Soviet-era propaganda campaign and how this tool is being rolled out today with the “impeachment.” We discuss why the effort to keep the false narrative spinning is so important to the far-left.

It’s more than changing our opinions. The goal of disinformation is accept their false premise as being the truth.

Democrats Disinformation Impeachment

Using tools of disinformation, active Soviet-era agents successfully took down religious leaders and politicians. They used a network of millions (yes, millions) of disinformation agents and operatives who worked their way into positions of power and influence. In the government, in media, in film, and in academia. At the end of the war, happened to all these agents? Where are they now? You won’t want to miss his answer.

Ron will be back next week to continue the discussion.

Another don’t miss show!

Air Dates: July 13 & 14, 2019 | Dr. Tim Ball

When you hear the term “American exceptionalism” it usually is used negatively. America isn’t great. America was never great. And so on. Just do a search on Google and you’ll be pummeled with negativity. “American exceptionalism is a dangerous myth” and so on.

But why is it that more “Little Americas” don’t spring into existence? Countries like Venezuela turn to socialism—and then fail spectacularly. Why don’t they instead follow America’s example? It’s not like we’ve hidden away our founding documents. The road map to freedom and prosperity is all right there.

American Exceptionalism

This week on I Spy Radio we look at why, in all the nations in the world, America is uniquely exceptional. And, oddly enough, Oregon is the unexpected example of what American Exceptionalism is all about.

Oregon? Really? How can that be you ask. Because right now the Far Left has taken over in Oregon with a super majority that has the ability to increase taxes regardless of what the other party or even what voters think. And since they won, it was believed by many that Oregon was lost, going completely Far Left. How is that an example of American exceptionalism.

It’s because of our ability to turn things around. To correct course. Because while the Left has taken over, there was an unexpected surprise.

Oregon Turning Point

About two weeks ago, a huge rally took place on the capitol steps that pushed back against the Far Left’s attempt to change this state for good. Or at least for a very, very long time. The D’s were prepared to force through a carbon tax over the objections of the minority party. But after thousands of people rolled up to the steps and rallied against the elected Democrats’ stance of ignoring the people about it via a vote—the politicians backed down.

Having been there personally, I can tell you it terrified the political Left. They’ve been used to steamrolling rural Oregonians. And now they’re rising up? Panic! And they buckled, cancelling (for now) the carbon tax scheme.

And with that, we tasted a very real example of American Exceptionalism.

Why America is So Unique

Since some have called those who pushed back against Oregon’s lawmakers “terrorists,” we wanted a deeper look at American Exceptionalism and what it means. Dr. Tim Ball has a unique viewpoint as a teacher,  historian, geopolitical expert, and climatologist to meld the Far Left’s desire to rid us of our individual rights and freedom of speech in their attempts to replace democracy with socialism.

The struggles of keeping American exceptionalism alive will always be a part of our life as the Left works hard to charm and deceive us into forfeiting our Constitutional rights that gives us inalienable rights, including freedom of speech and the 2nd Amendment.

Global Warming and Socialism

And deceive us they will. As AOC’s chief of staff, Chakrabarti (the same person who funneled $1 million from AOC’s PAC into two of his private companies), so clearly said this week: “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal, is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all. Do you guys think of it as a climate thing? Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.”

And there it is. That is why staying free takes so much effort.

And yes, that little revelation from Chakrabarti smacks of Agenda 21. (Maybe it’s time to do a refresher show on Agenda 21 and the origins of today’s environmental movement…?)

But tune in to find out more about what makes America so exceptional, why other countries don’t emulate us, and how Climate Change plays a role in all of this. And how, with some effort, Oregonians might finally start turning the tide.

Show Summary: Do you have an unlimited amount of money? Or time?  If not, then welcome to the world of economics—where math meets reality. Or, if you’re you’re talking about Oregon Democrats in charge of Oregon’s economic outlook, where math meets imaginary.

Original Air Dates: June 8 & 9, 2019 | Guest(s): Jonathan Williams

When it comes to economic outlook, there’s no better organization to turn to than ALEC — American Legislative Exchange Council, the nation’s premiere economic forecaster for the 50 states. And when it comes to Oregon’s economic outlook, they know what can make Oregon successful.

If only Oregon Democrats did.

Oregon’s Economic Outlook

Governor Kate Brown and Oregon's Economy: where math meets imaginary
Those two kids in the front look like they’re running the numbers on how much all this is gonna cost their generation…

We’ve said often that Oregon is the Petri dish for all things Left, except the Petri dish is no longer needed to prove what works or doesn’t work in economics.  States across the U.S. are demonstrating how increased taxes are not the way to economic recovery.  And even though the proof is in the pudding our Democrat legislators refuse to take heed.

Now ranked a very dismal 44th in ALEC’s survey of economic outlook among the states, Oregon may soon find their economic coffers emptying as businesses leave to move to much more friendly taxed states.  It’s already happening. Stimson Lumber announced this last week that they were packing up, closing their operations in Forest Grove, and heading out of state.

Oddly, with all its spending, Oregon may soon be one of the biggest cheerleaders of the Trump economy. Because what do you think will happen if suddenly the economy retreats when Oregon just decided to raise billions in new taxes?

Jonathan Williams from ALEC

To bring clarity to the problems of high taxed states we bring on Jonathan Williams, co-author of Rich States Poor States to give us the good and bad news of how states are dealing with Trump’s booming economy.  He discusses Oregon’s problems and why it was ranked so low—and that was before the new multi-billion-dollar business tax was passed.

We also get to look at what states like Idaho, Texas, Tennessee and others are doing not only enjoying Trump’s tax cuts but jumping on and cutting their own state taxes that highly benefits their citizens. (Like and support your people? What a concept!)

Listen to find out how Oregon is starting down the path of socialism by the D’s desire for centralized planning.  Hear what one Democrat Senator had to say while standing on the senate floor about businesses that could no longer afford to stay in Oregon. And listen to hear how Democrats are using the tax codes to only allow the “right” kind of business to operate in Oregon. Is this a new trend in national politics?

If nothing else, Oregon Democrats are proving the importance of borders. If the D’s get too destructive you can vote with your feet.
