Air Dates: June 22 & 23, 2019 | Burgess Owens

This Week:  Reparations. A topic that isn’t on most people’s top-ten list of things America needs to do. But it’s a grievance issue. And the Democrats and their presidential candidates are pushing it into the spotlight, so we’re addressing it. But it’s also an issue that shocked people when told, if there is a forced payment, who should pay.

Democrats and their Reparations: Imposed Guilt

Reflection is what you see in the mirror. Projection is when the self-absorbed see themselves in others. The Democrats are obsessed with race. They think everyone else is too. And they think everyone else therefore must be a racist. Because when you see race in everything—you’re the racist.

And it is those far-left Democrats who piously sit in front of their microphones, sneering and condescending to those who didn’t agree with them—the almighty gifters of gifting freebies.

For decades these same Democrats believed that the gold dust shaken from their magic wand of government hand-outs saved the Black community from certain demise.  That if it wasn’t for the generous Democrats who slammed their fists and screeched “Racist!” into their mics to anyone who voted no to welfare handouts that these same poor Blacks would just curl up and die. (Do you see who’s the racist here…?)

Democrat Reparations: You need to Pay for our Guilt

Burgess Owens - is there collusion in the NFL? And Why?
Liberalism: Or How to Turn Good Men into Whiners, Weenies, and Wimps

Let’s be clear. Democrats owned slaves. Not one Republican owned slaves. None. So why do Democrats think everyone, including non-slave-owning Republicans should pay reparations? And ever since they lost the Civil War, Democrats have been trying to run Blacks’ lives. It’s an arrogant assumption. And a racist one. Arrogant and racist because Democrats assume Blacks can’t succeed without them.

But the Democrats’ arrogance didn’t go unnoticed as many in the Black community learned to grow from the dark days of slavery and replace that life with a life of excelling. Embracing freedom, they created families, strong communities, and a belief that if you worked hard and earned your own way it would break those chains of mental and physical slavery for themselves and the next generation.

As these men and women broke out of their chains and put the past behind them, the Far Left delved into techniques of Socialism and Marxism. The Left discovered that to gain and maintain power and control over others was by keeping the powerless dependent on them and their government giveaways.

Burgess Owens: Throw off the Chains of the Democrats

It’s these two dichotomies of thought that we see clashing on our Congressional floors fighting from opposite sides of the room.  Freedom vs. dependence.

Enter Burgess Owens, who through his testimony stood up to those who wanted to keep him and other Blacks dependent, needy, and powerless.

Don’t miss: Burgess Owen’s article in the Wall Street Journal that got him an invite to testify to Congress

Burgess, a long-time guest of I Spy Radio, has been all over the news this week. He made headlines when he shocked Congressmen by saying that it’s the Democrats who should pay reparations to the Black community. (If you missed his Congressional testimony, we’ll be playing some excerpts from it and there are some additional links below.)

Burgess Owens: It’s the Democrats who Owe my Race Reparations

On this week’s show, we talk with Burgess about how reparations, which he calls a Marxist idea. We also hear how demeaning it was to hear Congressional members push for a program that neither recognized nor applauded the life of excellence that he and other Black men and women have lived. That making life easier through handouts actually keeps people in chains.

Join us this week to hear his thoughts on why those who push for reparations are really the racists—and why at this time in history we might finally have them on the run.

Oregon’s Economic Outlook: Math meets Imaginary

Oregon’s Economic Outlook: Math meets Imaginary

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.

Air Dates: Month # & #, 2019 | Guest(s)

This Week:  For many, the FISA court didn’t become widely known until after the 911 attacks as the public was sold the idea that the court was the way to keep track of terrorists who had infiltrated into the US or were planning to do so from other countries.  What you may not know is that the FISA court, along with all its secretive powers, was created back in 1978 under President Carter as a way to insure political opponents could not be spied upon (remember Nixon).

How is that working for you?

As with any well-meaning protection, bureaucratic protections can be used against you and at this time in history we seem to be experiencing an out-of-control government that abused the power of the FISA court under false pretenses in order to get Trump. Ironically, so far, these are the only crimes that are both known and provable. Not the Russian collusion or obstruction.

And that’s the key in our legal system. Not accusations, but whether the government can prove its case against you. It’s not whether you might have done something or are alleged to have done something. It’s whether the government can demonstrate that you did, in fact, do something. And that’s why Mueller could only resort to hinting and implying.

Mueller’s Parting Shot

In the wake of the Mueller Muddle and his parting shot, Democrats in Congress are still bleating on about impeachment.  The Senate is letting them hang themselves while they quietly work to get judicial nominees through their hearings. 

So the Democrat Media (formerly known as the “Mainstream Media”) ignores the biggest story of our time — a massive abuse of power by the Obama administration against political opponents. But while they ignore it, it turns out the story and investigation is moving forward.

Origins of the Crime: The FISA Court

Enter investigative reporter John Solomon who has produced some of the deepest digs into the story exposing many of the who and how.  But for him the biggest question to date is still the when this all started. Why?

Because crimes involve facts. And dates and times are facts.  Such as, when did Mueller know he was investigating a non-crime?  When did the FBI know the information used to get the FISA warrants was false? When did the government attorneys get involved helping to investigate?  And when did Loretta Lynch sign the FISA warrants? And, believe us, there are many more questions regarding the when.

Answering those questions may at last bring about the criminal warrants to bring down those involved and start to heal the country.

A FOIA on the FISA Court

John Solomon has taken action and is working with Todd Young, Executive Director of Southeastern Legal Foundation, to get these answers directly from the FISA court. So is it possible government lawyers have already been quietly sanctioned or punished for their involvement? Todd gives us his take on the Mueller parting shot, the details to exactly what they’ve requested from the court, and insights into actions that the mainstream Democrat media refuse to cover. If you want to know where are the FISA judges and why are they silent, well, we ask that too.  

This is a fascinating and insightful interview that you don’t want to miss.

James Hirsen on Mueller

Then we move into James Hirsen who dons his former-lawyer hat to rip into Mueller’s partisan hack job—and why so many are dumbfounded by Mueller’s upside down  and backward statements.  Only to issue a joint statement afterwards between Mueller and Barr’s office that he [Mueller] agrees there was no conflict between he and Barr.

The statement reads:

“The Attorney General [(Barr)] has previously stated that the Special Counsel [(Mueller)] repeatedly affirmed that he was not saying that, but for the OLC opinion, he would have found the President obstructed justice. The Special Counsel’s report and his statement today made clear that the office concluded it would not reach a determination -one way or the other- about whether the President committed a crime. There is no conflict between these statements,”

Could it get any more confusing? Join us this weekend and get a little clarity.

Show Summary: This week we explore socialism’s ties to Islam. Are the two new Muslim Congresswomen jihadists? We get answers form a former jihadist.

Original Air Dates: March 9 & 10, 2019 | Kamal Saleem

This week: In the first of a two-part show, we open our discussion with Kamal Saleem, about the ties between socialism and Islam. Kamal is a former cultural jihadist who converted to Christianity after he’d come to America to destroy it from withing. This week, our focus is: Are there jihadists in Congress?

There are a lot of similarities between the two political philosophies (and, yes, Islam is a political ideology). They both believe in the supremacy of their own ideology. They both believe in collectivism. They both believe in killing the opposition. But it doesn’t stop there.

Our talk with Kamal takes some interesting and surprising turns.

We talk with him about hte two newly elected Congresswomen who are both Muslims. Ilhan Omar has received the bulk of the attention with her anti-Semetic tweets but Rashid Talib is every bit as radical. Both are socialists.

In past I Spy Radio shows, we’ve wondered about the two ideologies—socialism and Islam. They are very similar in their world view (except on societal issues). Both use similar tactics and strategies to further their goals. Lying, obfuscation. Promising one thing and delivering another. Dividing society into groups and making them hate one another. Both socialism and Islam target the same segments of society—the disaffected and disgruntled.

Did you know where Hitler got his ideas on how to cope with “the Jewish problem”?

Tune in to hear the surprising ties between socialism and Islam— from a former cultural jihadist’s experience and viewpoint.

Original Air Dates: Nov. 17 & 18, 2018 |  Jayne Carroll & Sam Carpenter

This Week:  There’s the famous 1969 TV commercial, where a boy asks Mr. Owl, “How many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop?” You know the answer. One… two… three.

How many losses, how many lickings, will it take before the Oregon Republican Party makes the changes needed to finally win in Oregon?

It’s been 30 years (thirty!) since the last time Republicans won. 2018 was no different. Oregon Republicans lost the governor’s race again. But Knute Buehler’s race hurt down-ballot races as well. Oregon Republicans lost so badly to the Democrats that the Democrats have a super-majority in both the Oregon house and senate.

How many more losses will it take before something changes? That’s what we’d like to know.

Oregon Republicans: Aftermath of 2018 Midterms

On last week’s I Spy Radio Show, we talked about some bright spots in the 2018 midterms. Namely, some 2nd Amendment ballot initiatives that passed in eight counties. Eight. But we also talked about how Knute Buehler, the Republican candidate for governor, kept shooting himself in the foot by turning his back on his Republican base.

But we didn’t talk about the party itself.  That’s this week.

Fixing the Oregon Republican Party

Oregon Republicans - after huge 2018 losses, can they finally turn their luck around?
Oregon Republicans. The Charlie Brown of Republican politics?

Maybe “fixing the Oregon Republicans” is the wrong way to put it (given the 2018 results, they’re already pretty neutered). But something has to be done.

What has happened to Oregon’s Republican party that led to the smacking we saw it take this last election?  Does nothing need to change? If nothing needs changed, then why do R’s keep losing? If something needs to change, then what needs fixed to turn Republicans into winners?

Without asking those question we can’t move forward. Clearly, something needs to change because it’s blatantly obvious that how the party has always handled its business is just not working anymore. It’s not just a matter of “get better candidates.”

Make Oregon Republicans Successful Again

So we call upon two people who have different insights from two different perspectives.  One who has observed and reported on politics but has also managed campaigns and ballot initiatives.  And the other who has been a candidate and saw the dysfunction up close and personal—not only as a candidate but as a businessman who was a highly successful business  consultant, specializing in turning around failing businesses.

Jayne Carroll: A Political Observer’s View

Jayne Carroll kicks off the show. We talk about Knute, his strategy to woo Democrats, what we can expect from two years of Democrat stranglehold, and the unfair and confusing ballot measures that have led to some people still thinking that “at least the grocery tax was defeated.” (No. It wasn’t.) Tune in to where the 2018 ballot measures are leading us and her thoughts on how the Oregon Republicans can start making inroads into the heart of the Blue Swamp, Portland and Eugene.

Sam Carpenter: Candidate & Businessman’s Solutions

Then we turn to gubernatorial candidate Sam Carpenter, who discusses what happened during the primary. You may be surprised (shocked) at the supports the Oregon Republicans offer to candidates. Or doesn’t.

We also ask him if he was a business turnaround consultant coming in to the ORP to fix its problems what would he do. It turns out, not only does he give specific examples of what needs to be fixed, Sam has decided to put action to his words and has announced he’ll be running for the Chair of the ORP.  Leadership means everything and Sam wants to apply his skills of correcting an organization that continues its downward spiral that he wants to stop.

Are You Satisfied with the Oregon Republicans?

Are you satisfied with the Oregon Republican Party? Do we keep doing what we’ve been doing? Or is it time for something to change? Tune in to hear our guests to hear their suggested fixes — and then let us know what you think needs to happen to Make Oregon Red Again.

Air Dates: November 10 & 11, 2018 | Rob Taylor & Scott McEwen

Okay, so things didn’t go quite as well as we would have liked to see in Oregon politics. Knute, kept shooting himself in the foot as the Republican candidate, who seemed to not like Republicans. His opponent was not a well–liked Democrat candidate—and had Knute not attacked Republicans and their policies he may have a had a chance. But we’ll get into that next week. For this show we’re going to focus on the positive of what did happen Tuesday.

Hidden Victories in Oregon’s Midterm Elections

There was a little-discussed win in Oregon’s midterm elections, victories which happened in eight Oregon counties. Eight. Wins that were led by Rob Taylor, who saw eight counties pass ordinances to protect our 2nd Amendment rights as these counties voted to become “Gun Rights Sanctuary Counties.” Rob will explain how they used, of all things, the Constitution and the 10th Amendment. (What a novel idea.) Don’t miss out on hearing about some good news and where these activists will be going next to keep fighting for our 2nd Amendment rights.

Scott McEwen on the Midterms

Then we welcome back to our show Scott McEwen, who co-authored the huge hit, American Sniper. Of course, there’s never a show with Scott that we don’t talk about what’s going on in the world of politics. So naturally, we get his thoughts on the national midterms, Oregon’s midterm elections, and on the firing of Jeff Sessions.

Scott is also back to talk about his amazing new book City of Death: Humanitarian Warriors in the Battle of Mosul that he co-authored with Ephraim Mattos. Little has been discussed about the efforts our soldiers have made to fight back ISIS. Author and US Navy Seal, Ephraim Mattos not only fought against ISIS alongside his fellow soldiers, but after he left the SEALs he flew back to Iraq to join a small group of volunteer humanitarians known as the Free Burma Rangers. With Veterans Day upon us this is a great book to read that will give you a look inside the work of these humanitarians and the courage and sacrifice they’ve witnessed and endured.

If you’ve ever looked around at the chaos in America today and thought, “this… just isn’t how America used to be,” you’re right. And if you’ve ever thought America is under attack… you’re also right.

Welcome to the world of disinformation. It’s a war that started in 1945 and did not end with the end of the Cold War. Except now instead of Soviet Bloc agents, it’s being waged by socialists and communists right here in America.

Disinformation

On this week’s show, we get a glimpse at what’s really going on. How America has slowly and steadily been under attack, thanks to a counter-intelligence program that started in 1945 but has roots in Russia long before the Soviet Union.

Lt. General Ion Mihai Pacepa, who defected to the U.S., was the head of Romania counter-intelligence and oversaw its disinformation program. He recruited agents to work their way into prominent places in Western society— universities. The Media. Government. Politicians. And their job was to create disinformation that would undermine and destroy Western society.

The purpose was to create doubt and suspicion about the West’s — especially America’s — founding principles. To undermine freedom, free-market capitalism, and especially religion. Even about our own history.

Disinformation was so effective, it essentially rewrote history they’d just lived through. The agents of disinformation managed to destroy the public image of Pope Pius XII, effectively labeling him “Hitler’s Pope” when the exact opposite was the true history.

Disinformation: Part I

Disinformation book coverOn this week’s show, we talk with Ronald Rychlak, the co-author of Disinformation: Former Spy Chief Reveals Secret Strategies for Undermining Freedom, Attacking Religion, and Promoting Terrorism (available via Amazon.com).  In this week’s show, we get an overview of disinformation, what it is, and why it’s far more sinister than either propaganda or misinformation.

On this week’s show, you’ll hear how disinformation is pervasive and get some examples of how disinformation was effective in the past.

Like how a certain returning Vietnam veteran bought the disinformation campaign to discredit America in Vietnam and ended up throwing his medals over the White House fence.

You’ll come away with a better understanding of the Deep State and Fake News. Not to mention how reality is twisted (like the whole “Russian collusion” story line) to undermine America’s institutions and principles.

You’ll also hear tie-ins to so many previous I Spy Radio shows: Deep State, socialism, fake news, the media, even radical Islam.

And be sure to come back next week when we look at specific examples of disinformation. Plus, whatever happened to all those Soviet agents that were recruited and released into the West?

Show Summary: In a followup from last week’s show, we talk with Portland Radio Superstar, Jayne Carroll, about the difficulty facing Oregon Republicans this year. Can Republicans trust Knute Buehler? Should they? Should they vote for him? Plus, more on government corruption and leftist billionaires and their secret operatives implanted in Oregon’s Attorney General office. The Kavanaugh hearings. And O’Keefe’s latest uncovering the Deep State’s sabotage of the Trump administration.

Original Air Dates: September 22 & 23, 2018 | Guest: Jayne Carroll

Last week, we asked whether Oregon Republicans can trust their own candidate, Knute Buehler. Why? Because during the primary, while running against two conservatives, Knute said he opposed a carbon tax. He even called such a scheme Kate Brown’s “honey pot.”

Can Republicans trust Knute Buehler? Plus, Leftist billionaires' secret army planted in states' attorneys general offices
Can Oregon Republicans trust Knute Buehler? Should they?

And then, within weeks of winning the Republican primary, Knute flipped. And now he says he wants a carbon tax.

So which version of Knute do you trust? Primary Knute? Or general election Knute? (Funny how he hasn’t changed his stance on abortion though.)

Our guest last week, Chuck Wiese, a meteorologist and fierce global warming debunker, knows that global warming—now “climate change” (because people are stupid, apparently)— is a scam. Chuck looks at the devastation a carbon tax did to both California and its once proud Republican Party. California’s carbon tax, passed by Arnold Schwarzenegger, a “republican” governor, with the aid of California Republicans, destroyed both the state and the Republicans. As a result, some 10,000 businesses have been forced out of California by the carbon tax.

And now Knute Buehler says he wants a carbon tax. Is Knute trying to destroy Oregon? Or the Oregon Republican Party? Or both?

The Don’t Vote Knute Buehler Strategy

Chuck believes that if Kate Brown gets elected, she won’t be able to pass a carbon tax. Why? Because Republicans in the house and senate will oppose her simply because she’s a Democrat trying to pass (in Knute’s words) a honey pot for Democrats and their Democrat allies.

But if “republican” Knute Buehler gets elected, it’s a different story. Knute will get a carbon tax passed, where Kate Brown will fail if she gets elected. Why? Because in the Knute scenario, Republicans will actually want (or feel obligated to) to support their newly elected “republican” governor.

Imagine that. Republicans passing an anti-business carbon tax. A tax that could punish businesses to the tune of some $17 billion. A tax that will raise prices on every thing. And worse, a tax that will send tens if not hundreds of millions of dollars to… wait for it…Democrats.

If Oregon Republicans pass a carbon tax, it will be like writing checks to the political opponents.

Perhaps this kindergarten-level of “strategic thinking” is why the Oregon Republican Party are in the hole to the tune of –$13,000. Meanwhile, the Oregon Democrat Party is  sitting on a cool half-million in cash in the bank.

So you can see why Chuck Wiese believes it would be better for Oregon Republicans not to elect their own candidate. And it does make a lot of sense—as horrible as it sounds. Sometimes, strategy is very messy. So what are Republicans to do?

That’s why we call in talk show host and long-time political strategist, Jayne Carroll.

This Week’s Show: Jayne Carroll

In the Portland area, Jayne Carroll is a radio superstar. The First Lady of Radio. Last week’s show (The Impossible Choice Facing Oregon Republican Voters This Year) featured Chris Horner, who revealed that Leftist billionaires are secretly embedding global-warming operatives right into states’ attorney general offices. We also talked with Chuck Wiese about his strategy and reasons not to vote for Knute Buehler. Knever Knute. Because Jayne has over 30 years experience in Oregon politics, we want to get her take on things.

While you’ll have to listen, here’s a hint. She’s not thrilled with Knute Buehler. But should Republicans sit this one out? What about the other issues? Will Knute do to the Oregon Republican Party what Schwarzenegger did to California Republicans?

Or what about this: is Knute a Deep State or at least a Democrat plant?

You’ll have to tune in to find out.

We also get her take on the Kavanaugh hearings, the accusations of Christine Ford and the games Democrats play. the latest from Project Veritas exposing the Deep State, and lots more.

Don’t miss this terrific show with one of the best talk show hosts in Portland.

The One Exception to “Always Vote Republican”…?

Like most conservative Republicans, we have always believed you’ll get more of what you want by voting for any Republican iver any Democrat. But on this week’s show, tune in to hear why voting for Knute Buehler, running for Oregon’s governor, could be the exception to the rule.

Map of I Spy Radio Show broadcast areas, starting May 5, 2018

This will be a challenging show for listeners because conservative Republicans face an impossible question this election. Is it still better to vote for a Republican candidate if that candidate could do real long-term damage to the Republican party and to Oregon?

In other words, does the maxim, “Always vote for the Republican” still hold if the Republican candidate is actually worse than the Democrat?

Exposed: Billionaires’ Secret Operatives in States AG Offices

As if an potentially untrustworthy Republican candidate for Oregon governor wasn’t bad enough… Add to that worry, the startling revelation that Leftist billionaires are secretly placing operatives in attorneys general offices all across America. Including right here in Oregon.

It’s one bad choice on top of another.

Knute Buehler – Never Knute?

We’re sure the “Never Trumpers” will try to claim this is exactly the same situation they were in a few years back. (Knever Knute?) But it’s not, of course.

The “Never Trump” movement (which Knute was a proud member of, we might add) was a case of so-called “conservatives” opposing Trump for irrational reasons. The Never Trumpers opposed Trump despite Trump running on Conservative values. And conservative tax policies. And a strong Second Amendment defense. Oh, and pro life. Not to mention he opposed global warming. Was for border control and legal immigration. Plus, he pushed for conservative judges.  He was — or should have been—a conservatives dream.

But they just opposed him because he was Trump.

The election in Oregon, however, is a case of a “Republican” candidate pushing Democrat ideals: a carbon tax. (Not to mention being very pro-abortion. And a host of other progressive social issues.) Trump never pushed Democrat policies. That’s why this is different.

The Problem: Knute Buehler’s Carbon Tax

A carbon tax opens the door in Oregon to a potential tax to raise up to $17 billion dollars.  Knute has said he’s for a carbon tax. After claiming (conveniently) during the primary that he was against it. (See Knute Buehler’s op-ed in The Oregonian, Oct. 22, 2017.)

The Danger: Knute Buehler’s Convenient Flip on a Carbon Tax

Just weeks after he won the Republican primary for Oregon’s governor, Knute Buehler suddenly announced that he thinks a carbon tax would be a good idea. What?

A carbon tax will be a killer to businesses, do nothing to affect “climate change,” and spend billions of dollars that will end up in the hands of the Democrats. How does any “Republican” not know this?

To see what will happen to the state and to the Republican party, look no further than what happened in California after “Republican” Governor Schwarzenegger passed their carbon tax. Tens of thousands of businesses left the state. California is now nearly $100 billion in debt. And the once proud Californian Republican party is in shambles and can’t stop anything the Democrats.

Chuck Wiese: Why Republicans Can’t Trust Knute Buehler

Our first guest is Chuck Wiese, a meteorologist and global warming debunker.  Chuck discusses why, despite being a life-long Republican, he is considering actively opposing Knute.

But there’s a real strategy at play here that will challenge your thinking.

Chuck exposes that, when you really start pushing “scientists” who claim to believe in global warming and challenge their facts, they have to admit that even if we do everything they say we have to do, it won’t really affect anything.

So why is Knute supporting a carbon tax? Why has he flipped on this? Is it just a ploy? But if so, how do you know which Knute to believe? Do you take a risk and hope for the best?

Tune in to hear the reasons why not voting Republican may actually be the better long-term choice—if Knute can’t be forced to come around.

Leftist Billionaires Secretly Placing Staff in State AG Offices

To start our conversation, we welcome first time guest, Chris Horner, a Senior Fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) that was sued by a State’s Attorney General a few years ago simply because CEI didn’t support the idea of global warming.

Since then, Chris has completed two extensive research reports that has uncovered “special assistant attorneys” being secretly placed in states’ Attorneys General and Governor’s offices without any oversight from legislators or voters.  All of this “off book” and hidden from the public and designed to enforce the will of Leftist billionaires.

Like Michael Bloomberg. Who is pushing global warming by creating this shadow government in states across the nation — and it’s happening right here in Oregon.

CEI’s Chris Horner Exposes Billionaires Operatives in States’ AGs

Listen to our guest Chris Horner and the evidence they have gathered through court filings and discovery, including e-mails that reveal how these billionaires are actively trying to undermine the voters and how the AGs are trying to hide all of this from the public.

Knute Buehler’s convenient carbon tax lie:

  • During the Republican primary, Knute said he was against the carbon tax. (Knute’s op-ed inThe Oregonian, Oct, 22, 2017)
    • Note: Knute’s campaign staff is now trying to claim he didn’t mean he was against a carbon tax, he was just against Kate Brown being the one to do it
  • The flip: after he won the primary, Knute suddenly reversed his stance on a carbon tax: ““While skeptical of major new spending, Buehler says he is open to increased taxes on electronic and regular cigarettes to pay for budget items like health care, and also to a carbon tax, although not to the Democrats’ cap and trade proposal.” What? Why didn’t he mention he wanted a carbon tax during the primary? (“State Rep. Knute Buehler to challenge Gov. Kate Brown,” Register-Guard, May 16th, 2018)

Air Dates: Month # & #, 2018 | Guest(s)

This Week:  After a couple weeks off to take care of some much-needed (and noisy) remodeling, we’re back.  And we are starting with a show that will make you sit back and think why aren’t we hearing this in the MSM?

This week’s news of Manafort and Cohen is fading fast from the headlines but what was also dropped from the headlines faster than a hot potato. Muslim extremists are (or were) back in the news. But only getting a brief mention before quickly being overshadowed by a MSM all too willing to bury the story.

As shocking as the story of an active Islamic terror training camp was, operating right here on U.S. soil in New Mexico, the reality is perhaps even more frightening.

What CNN is Trying to Hide about Islamic Terror in the US

What should have been a week-long story in the media faded within 24 hours. Law enforcement uncovered a school for children where terrorists were training them to kill other children in their classrooms. Add to that the almost unbelievable ruling by the judge to set the accused free with practically no bail.  But as shocking as these open threats of violence and terror are, in many ways what you’ll hear this week on I Spy Radio is even more frightening.

We call in Kamal Saleem. He is a former Jihadist who was trained to kill but was commissioned to come to America to destroy it from within by attacking its core beliefs and culture.  Kamal knows exactly what was happening at this training camp and what it all means because he went through it at a young age. He grew up in the Middle East, a younger son of a Muslim family, whose “best hope” for meaning in life was to kill the enemies of Islam because becoming a martyr would guarantee his entire family’s unconditional right to enter Heaven.

So what’s the difference between CNN and I Spy Radio? When CNN has a “Middle East expert” or “Muslim expert” on to discuss Islam, it’s to have them on as apologists—to make excuses for Muslims sowing the seeds of terror. I Spy Radio has a genuine Middle Eastern Muslim—who turned from his Islamic faith on to warn others about it.

 Don’t miss this extremely fascinating show that takes us into the mindset of terrorists as he discusses their real intentions on Christians and Jews. He also gives us some insights into what happened in the 1920s that resulted in a strategic and tactical change for Muslims in their struggle with the West. Can Islam and Christianity have peace? Can the Children of Ishmael be redeemed?
