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.

Oregon Fires, Arson, & Civil Unrest

  • Arson arrests made across the west coast as fires rage on (Law Enforcement Today, Sept 11, 2020)
  • How The 1960s Riots Foreshadow Today’s Communist Weaponization Of Black Pain (The Federalist Sept 14, 2020)
    • 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
  • FBI Director Wray: ‘Antifa is a real thing,’ FBI has cases against people identifying with movement (Fox News, Sept 17, 2020)
  • Report: DOJ Considered Bringing Charges Against Local Portland Officials Over Handling Of Riots (Daily Caller, Sept 17, 2020)
    • “The Department of Justice considered bringing charges against local Portland officials over alleged mishandling of riots and demonstrations … probing how city officials “were handling, or not handling” the violent unrest.”


  • DeFazio faced primary challenger, a further-Left Democrat, who accused him of selling out to big pharma and big oil. (Siuslaw News, May 5, 2020)
  • Skarlatos’ fundraising surge may signal tough race for Oregon’s DeFazio (OPB, July 27, 2020)
    • 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”
