Good Time for Good News

This Week:  Over the past few months we’ve been able to experience what President Trump has done for our courts, especially the 9th Circuit.  There have actually been decisions made in the past few weeks that support things like, oh you know, the rule of law.

With just that one amazing change, Trump may finally be able to make a decision without being hauled into court, as the Left tries any trick to try stop. And this subtle but important change means we can look at some of the new rules knowing they may actually be enacted.

Good News for the Endangered Species Act

One of those are incredibly important changes he’s made to the Endangered Species Act. And, naturally, what’s being reported about simple changes that could lead to actual recovery of these species is being mis-reported that it will destroy a “vitally needed” government program.

This act that was to save animals from extinction because the money resource for far-left organizations who abused it through their sue-and-settle actions.  Rather than trying to protect animals from harm they wanted to raise funds by suing while having prelimary agreements from Deep State bureaucrats to happily ensure the government would lose its case so that they could pay out high and outrageous attorney fees back to them.  A legal loop hold that until recently was handing over millions to pro-environmental-anti-human groups.

With that atrocious practice eliminated, we turn our focus to the changes Trump’s administration has actually made to the ESA and its new benefits to species and to landowners.  Dr. Zybach walks us through what he’s seen in how the landowner is now empowered to help with the ESA and why that’s a good thing.

Also, don’t miss his personal encounter with the Endangered Species Act, Oregon’s “other Spotted Owl”, the Marbled Murrelet. It’s a good example of abuse by the scientific community and what happens when you sacrifice science on the altar of politics. (You can download his article, Oregon Coast Range Old-Growth: Part III, Marbled Murrelet Habitat.)

Good News from Hollywood. Wait, what…?

Kanye West September 2019 Album leaks, Jesus is King
Kanye West September 2019 Album leaks, Jesus is King

Then we turn to Hollywood, the last place we expected to see good news this week and talk with James Hirsen about one star of pop culture who is making a dramatic change —to Christian music.

Kanye West, who recently became a born-again Christian, has a new album coming out in September.  Mr. Hirsen walks us through Kanye and his wife, Kim Kardashian, have a tremendous impact on pop culture and why the Far Left may push back against them. Or just flat out turn on them. Because, you know, kids listening to an enlightened and positive message is clearly so dangerous.

We also have a momentary dip into the darker side of Bernie Sanders who wants population control because of (drum roll) global warming. He wants to sacrifice life to save us from death, sigh.

But we only stay on the dark side for a little bit and quickly turn back to some more good news—the newest Christian movie, Overcomer, and its powerful message.

This week, it’s all good fun, and uplifting, except for Bernie’s message.  But then again, when is anything socialist ever good news?

Original Air Dates: Aug 17 & 18, 2019 | John Solomon & Dr. Tim Ball

This Week:  In America we know our country isn’t perfect but it has the realization of someday getting there and we love her for that.  Such is the conversation that goes on now as we watch our government grapple with the huge mistakes it’s made. Some of them repeatedly. Mistakes that may have unnecessarily put men in jail or caused people to die— not to mention a massive abuse of power.

Abuse of Power

Two stories that are emblematic of this point are the investigations into the death of Jeffrey Epstein and the Russian hoax.  Both are important, and both exemplify government mismanagement and, quite possibly, deep corruption.  What’s troubling is both of these examples of corruption are right smack dab in the middle of our once-trusted Department of Justice.

Sadly, our government turned its moral compass upside down as insiders grapple to gain power.  We have to fix what some may feel is unfixable: a bureaucratic system that creates an environment where insiders aren’t responsible nor get punished.

John Solomon: Epstein, Comey, and the DOJ

Bill Clinton was a frequent visitor to Jeffrey Epstein "pedo island"

This week we interview perhaps the nation’s top investigative reporter John Solomon, who has been exposing corruption for his entire career. He’s been on the Comey and Epstein case with unbelievable depth and insights. We’re honored to have him and in true I Spy Radio form, we actually let him talk and go in depth.

John takes us through the recent investigation of Epstein’s death and he delivers clear information of what are the facts of the story and where the investigation may still lead.  He also talks about Comey, who, so far, has escaped justice but there’s a steel trap that may (finally!) be coming his way.

Extreme Abuse of Power and the Immorality of those in Power

Then we talk with Dr. Tim Ball, who as an outsider living in Canada, gives us his perspectives on how other countries see the US investigations, the DOJ’s handling of the Epstein and Comey cases. Don’t miss the discussion on the Epstein case of the horrific abuse of power of those involved at the highest levels of government—including the Royal Family’s abuse of power as they become entangled in the Epstein case.

And the most shocking? The ultimate corruption: they believe it’s their right to abuse. They’re entitled to do what they want.

This is most definitely one of those shows you do not want to miss.

Air Dates: June 15 & 16, 2019 | Dr. Tim Ball & Mike Heatwole

This Week:  It seems unusual these days when news reports might be filled with actual analysis.  Especially
in the age of social media where the competition of achieving the perfect click bait headline is pretty fierce.  But does relying on click bait news mean that you learn anything? Or that you can get analysis of an issue? No. It means that words are used only to get your attention and maybe sway you. 

The fiercely competitive click-bait news world might also be why you lose out on hearing about good things that are happening on the international stage as opposing sites fight to get your attention. Words to get your attention and click through. But no real substance. 

And that’s a problem. Because, thanks to the Trump effect, there is a lot of good news. And it’s happening everywhere.

Trump Effect – Global Changes for the Good

So what’s the good news you might not hear?  The Trump factor is creating big changes on the world stage. Big changes for the good.  Especially if you’re not a socialist.

But, thankfully, we’re not the only ones who’ve noticed.

Trump Effect in Brexit, EU, and Canada

First up we welcome back Dr. Tim Ball, who takes us around the world to look at what specific actions have occurred due to Trump’s influence.  Europe is very much in flux now moving away from open borders as the people continue to vote for and gravitate to leaders such as the Brexit supporter Boris Johnson, a leader they believe will protect their borders and put their country first.  (Sound familiar?) We also discuss Dr. Tim’s home country Canada, and what is happening with Trudeau.  And don’t miss our conversation on Soros and his new $200 million campaign to get “the right” attorneys general into state offices. 

Trump Effect Making U.S. More Competitive

Then we bring in Mike Heatwole, VP of Public Affairs for the Pebble Partnership. , to discuss how the Trump factor has completely changed their relationship with the EPA.  In the greater scheme of things, Trump remaking the EPA will remove the roadblocks to not just Pebble but a lot of natural resource industries.

As you may recall, the Pebble Partnership has been trying for almost a decade to open The Pebble Mine, located in Bristol Bay, Alaska. In a first ever move by the Obama administration to weaponize the EPA, the Pebble Mine was denied the chance to even apply to begin their permitting process.

Not denied a permit. The Obama EPA blocked them from even applying for one.

But there was one blessing. In their lawsuit against the EPA, Pebble uncovered evidence the EPA was colluding with environmental groups

The EPA: Doing the Bidding of China

Okay, the EPA may not exactly be doing China’s bidding. But they may as well have been. Fortunately, that’s changing.

We talk with Mike not only about the change in working with the EPA, now that Trump is in office, but what it means for American companies’ ability to be far more competitive in the global marketplace.

You can bet that makes China nervous.  First, Trump opened up our oil exportations to make us number one in the world. Think what will happen when Pebble Mine opens with the world’s largest gold and copper deposits.  Not to mention some rare-earth minerals at Pebble too. 

It makes you wonder. Just who is behind all that funding for the coalition of “environmental groups” opposing Pebble…? Hmm.

Don’t miss: the Dumbest pseudo-science, “environmental” video ever on the Pebble Mine (see links and info, below)

Biggest, Most Important Trump Effect of them All

5 things socialists will never understandBut the biggest Trump effect around the world has been to put socialism itself on the run. More and more voters in country after country are pushing back against socialism. Against the New World Order. Against politicians who care more about other countries than their own.

We see it in Italy. Hungary. The U.K. and Brexit. France. Canada. People are fed up with leaders who got elected but spend more time taking care of other countries. But there are some socialist elites rearing their ugly heads.

We’re seeing angry and motivated globalists, like Soros, pour more money into local elections. These globalists want to tear us down in order to preserve their money and power.

Fortunately for us, and the rest of the world, Trump seems unafraid as he faces off with them as a leader, not a politician.

Tim Ball (Segments 1–3)

Ninth Circuit allows Keystone Pipeline to proceed (Epoch Times, June 9, 2019) *“In its determination to move forward with pipeline construction, the Trump administration outmaneuvered pipeline opponents. During the course of the litigation, Trump revoked the 2017 permit allowing the building of the pipeline to move forward, thus depriving the courts of jurisdiction in the case. The circuit court panel was left with no choice but to dismiss as moot the lawsuit and permanent restraining order against the project issued Nov. 8 last year by Judge Brian Morris of the U.S. District Court in Montana.” *Trump is figuring out how the system works and in so doing is using the system against itself.

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.

Air Dates: Aug. 4 & 5, 2018 | Dr. Tim Ball

Dr. Tim Ball, a retired professor from Winnipeg, has been a favorite punching of the mainstream media for his skepticism about Global Warming. He not only disputes the so-called “scientific consensus”  of Global Warming but also the so-called “science” of Global Warming.

Since the media is a cult of true believers, you can imagine why they will do whatever they can to destroy Dr. Ball.

This Week: Mainstream Media Manipulation

mainstream media lies to cover for Obama
The mainstream media lies to the point of propaganda. All to push their politics.

On this week’s show, we continue our look at the mainstream media. Previously, we talked with Scott Adams (of Dilbert fame) about persuasion and how the media is steadily undermining their own credibility. Trump Derangement Syndrome anyone?

We also talked last week with bestselling author Scott McEwen (co-author of American Sniper) about mainstream media’s dishonesty. This week, we tie it all together. You’ll hear how the media is actively sabotaging America and how their efforts to destroy Trump impacts everyone. Even people who dislike Trump.

Why? Because when they don’t tell the truth, it harms all of us.

The Perfect Example of Damaging Misleading: Global Warming

There is no better example of how and why the mainstream media manipulates and misleads than the issue of Global Warming. Why? Because they are so willing to kill sell their soul for a political ideology.

It’s not science. It’s manipulation. And there are literally hundreds of billions of dollars at stake. Even trillions of dollars.

Tune in to hear how it all started, the diabolical and ingenious strategy behind it. You’ll hear how their methods to manipulate the public on Global Warming  (better known as “Climate Change” when it’s not summer) are used time and again on other policy issues. And how no matter whether it warms or cools, they can claim a win.

Poor Jim Acosta. No one likes him.In short: the media lies. They aren’t telling the truth about Global Warming (there isn’t any) and they’re not telling the truth about the Trump presidency. But it’s how those lies affect all of us that you need to pay attention to.

Because the mainstream media isn’t just sabotaging themselves. They’re sabotaging all of us. And America. Find out why. This week.

This week, we talk with Scott Adams, the creator of Dilbert and author of the New York Times bestselling book, Win Bigly, about the field of persuasion.

We start with Scott’s background, how he learned about the field of persuasion and his training in it. Then we get some understanding persuasion: how it works, why it works, and the barriers to it. Like how people will take entrenched mental positions and things like cognitive dissonance—where people take positions or actions that are contrary to their stated beliefs. Think: “Never Trumpers”

Speaking of Trump, we look at Trump as an example of masterful persuasion.  Have you ever wondered how President Trump manages to survive the constant media assaults that would sink any other politician? And not only survive but thrive? It’s all in the persuasion.

How many times, since June of 2015, have the Never Trumpers thought “Ah ha! This is the gaff that will finally take him out!” Only to find in the next day’s reporting that his popularity has increased.  Is Trump a magician? Maybe. But his magic wand is persuasion.

We’ll also look at how the Democrats are setting their hair on fire every time Trump does something — even when that something is good for America. Is this an example at examples of bad persuasion? Could the Democrats’ persuasion actually work?

Air Dates: June 23 & 24, 2018 | John Kiriakou

This Week:  Part 2 of our interview with former CIA whistle-blower, John Kiriakou, who was targeted for punishment.

As you heard last week, Kiriakou’s case was an example of the abuse of power. It was eerily similar (okay, exactly like) to what we are seeing in the Mueller probe. Last week, we also heard echoes of what has come out in the Inspector General’s report released last Thursday: people in positions of power, using that power to attack and destroy people they don’t like. Setting themselves up as judge, jury, and executioner.

If you missed last week’s broadcast go to I Spy’s archives to listen to the free podcast.  What you’ll hear is a story that is eerily similar to what came out of the IG report and to what we know about the Mueller probe. It’s a story about federal agencies being used to harass and target enemies of the Deep State. People who are meant to be made an example of so others don’t dare cross them — or dare to expose what really happened.

Our guest, John Kiriakou, faced their wrath and abuse of power in a very personal way.  He’s the “whistleblower” who went on ABC and confirmed the CIA was using torture on terrorists. Angry at being exposed, someone in the agency sought revenge and unleashed the FBI on John, including a secret four-year investigation that tracked his every move, including an effort to entrap him for treason.

So, this week we continue that conversation. We dig a little deeper into John Brennan, Robert Mueller, and John Kerry. We also find out more information on the investigators (or were they spies?) in Trump’s presidential campaign. But was Trump the only campaign being spied on?

Tune in to hear the leverage and tentacles that the CIA has over government officials and how they get it. And is there a current member of Oregon’s Congressional delegation on whom the CIA may have some dirt?

Any guesses who?

John Kiriakou CIA whistle-blower who went to prison when the CIA used the FBI to silence him as a warning to other whistle-blowers
John Kiriakou CIA whistle-blower who went to prison when the CIA used the FBI to silence him as a warning to other whistle-blowers

On today’s show, John Kiriakou will walk you through what it was like to be recruited (out of the blue) by the CIA, his training, and their attempt to recruit him into their enhanced interrogation program.

Things were going well until he was accused by ABC News of being one of the torturers of Abu Zubaydah, who was waterboarded. When John went on TV to defend himself and told Brian Ross about the program, which by then was declassified, someone in the CIA decided to silence him.

Join us as we hear John Kiriakou’s incredible story. How the CIA used the FBI to spy on him—an American citizen and patriot—in an effort to silence an enemy of the Deep State.

Tune in to hear how someone in the CIA urged the Obama administration to reopen his case, how the FBI launched a secret surveillance on him, tried to entrap him into committing treason, and when that didn’t work, used their bottomless prosecutorial checkbook to try to bankrupt him.

You’ll hear eerily similar tactics being used in the Mueller probe to force witnesses to do their will.

You’ll also hear who in the CIA had targeted John Kiriakou for silencing.

Then be sure to join us next week as we continue our discussion and take a deeper dive into the Deep State.

Part 2 of our interview with John Kiriakou will air the weekend of June 23/24. Show page for Part 2 is here.

This Week:  we will be following up on last week’s conversation about Oregon’s economic woes with Jonathan Williams of ALEC. Our conversation with Jonathan was a real eye opener on how Oregon’s current leadership is about to punish small businesses. We move from last week’s diagnostics to some actual remedies this week with guest, business owner and consultant, Sam Carpenter.

Sam Carpenter for Oregon's governor
I Spy Radio interviews Sam Carpenter who is running for Oregon’s governor

Sam is one of the Republican candidates for Oregon governor. A successful businessman himself, he is also a consultant and turnaround specialist. He has helped over 200 companies find their own path to prosperity.  Sam is hired to identify the problems and then design the way for the company to correct them and get back to prosperity.  And that’s just what he wants to do for Oregon—fix the economic problems.

And with Kate Brown’s “leadership,” we have a ton of problems.

Oregon governor Kate Brown and the Salem Democrats made Oregon a sanctuary state. Have you signed the petition yet? Your signature can help get it on the ballot so voters can decide. Head to StopOregonSanctuaries.org. Just print, sign, mail. Do it today!

Oregon Democrat’s Punish Small Business Tax becomes law

We talk to Sam about three major problems that he would face from Day One of taking the reins in Oregon and start to immediately change our direction.  Sam talks to us about what we’ve termed The Punish Small Business Tax (SB 1528) that Kate already signed into law and how devastating it will be for small business.

And we talk about PERS. Especially the lack of good information to even know how much in debt we truly are, with some saying $25 billion, others say $50 billion, and still other reliable estimates that put it up to $100 and even as high as $200 billion.  Who’s right?

Crush Small Businesses Part II: The Internet Sales Tax

We also talk with Sam about the little known Internet Sales Tax that the Supreme Court heard this week. Governor Kate Brown’s Attorney General signed an Amicus Brief in support of yet another punishing blow to Oregon’s small businesses.  If it stands, it will mean that business owners in Oregon, which has no sales tax of its own (yet), will be forced to collect tax for over 12,000 taxing jurisdictions—in other states.

Why exactly did Oregon’s Attorney General sign onto this idea…?

Trump’s Jerusalem — The Key to Peace in the Middle East?

Trump’s Jerusalem — The Key to Peace in the Middle East?

Show Summary: The mainstream media was too busy spewing anti-Trump propaganda to notice how “Trump’s Jerusalem” may have profoundly positive and long-term results. We talk with a former jihadist to learn how Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, combined with some unreported events in the Middle East, may open the door in real peace in Israel. Perhaps even the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple.

Air Dates: December 9 & 10, 2017 | Kamal Saleem

A former jihadist reveals why “Trump’s Jerusalem” combined with some unreported developments in the Middle East will open the door in real peace in Israel.

This week, President Trump decided to put a foot down on death-by-committee and officially recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. After years of promises from past presidents, President Trump directed the State Department to begin the process of moving the United States embassy to Jerusalem. The result from countries such as Turkey was outrage. Fires of anger started raging as Muslims responded to a long time promise of the mid 1990’s.

Not surprisingly, the anti-Trump media also tried to ignite their own firestorm. Except they are completely missing why this is such a historic moment and the key pieces of the puzzle that are suddenly now in play. Even the Trump-friendly media like Fox News and Breitbart are missing these key puzzle pieces. But don’t worry; we have the answers.

Trump’s Jerusalem: A New Era of Peace in Israel?

We pull in our expert on Middle East issues: former Jihadist, Kamal Saleem, who was born in Beirut, Lebanon, to give us insights into the reasons why Muslims are exploding over President Trump’s decision—but also why there is real reason to believe peace may come to Israel as a result of these puzzle pieces that the media is completely missing.  Because Kamal is fluent in Arabic and Hebrew, he is able to give us information you won’t hear in the main stream media. So, tune to find out why this decision to move the embassy is one of the most historic decisions of modern time.

Don’t miss what the rest of the media is missing!
