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.

The Good Guys get a Win! What Oregon can learn from them

Show Summary: When it comes to slaying the dragons in life—whether metaphorical or the governmental kinds—we all like to see the good guys win. This week on I Spy Radio, we follow two stories about just that. Dr. Tim Ball who just won a major court, a libel lawsuit because he dared to be skeptical about Global Warming. Plus former Navy pilot and Blue Angels commander, Greg Wooldridge. Oregon’s newest Republican candidate for governor. Good guys winning! Can Oregon learn from these? Can Oregon win again?

Air Dates: March 3 & 4, 2018 | Dr. Tim Ball & Capt. Greg Wooldridge

On last week’s show we discussed Oregon’s ongoing health care debacle, including one of Oregon’s largest Coordinated Care Organizations was forced to close its doors as it faced a $100 million loss for 2018. This shouldn’t be a surprise, since the bills that created Oregon’s Health Authority and Coordinated Care Organizations were designed to create universal health care. In other words, socialized medicine.

HB3650: Oregon's legislative intent was to create universal health care.
HB3650: Oregon’s legislative intent to create universal health care. Paragraph 1. #ReadTheBill

(This should not have been hard for the Republicans who voted for these bills to figure out. Especially given that the very first paragraph said so. See the graphic at the right.)

Our predictions from years ago have sadly come true as we see the Democrat majority in Oregon’s legislature continue to push for a single payer system for health care (which will raise taxes), Cap and Trade (which will raise taxes), divorce us from Trump’s tax cuts (which will raise taxes), and increase gun control policies (which will raise taxes).  Without more Republican legislators, Oregonians are left powerless to curb the Democrats’ desire to run our lives and spend our money.

It is critical that we replace Democrat Governor, Kate Brown, before she spends us into California-level oblivion. Many Oregonians are beginning to lose hope of ever shaking the Democrats from the halls of power before it’s too late.

This week we’re happy to say there’s hope. Because as you’ll hear, the Good Guys can and do win.

Good Guys do Win

First up, we talk with Dr. Tim Ball, a retired professor who has been battling three libel lawsuits against him, all by the same lawyer who is representing three clients with very deep pockets. He and his wife were forced to exhaust their savings as they fought to protect their right to free speech in anti-free-speech Canada—simply because he dared to be a skeptic of Global Warming.

But Dr. Ball just got some outstanding news on one of the lawsuits against him. The Left has sought to sue him ito silence, intimidate him, and make an example of him as a warning to others who would dare to speak up and expose the bad science behind such things as the Michael Mann’s famous “hockey stick” chart, that has become the poster child of the Global Warming movement. Now, after seven years, the court dismissed the case in favor of Dr. Ball.

But there is some more good news too. Tune in to hear the story not only about his recent victory but how another development could have global implications and slay one of the biggest dragons of the Global Warming movement.

See? The good guys do win.

Can Oregon Learn to Win Again?

Captain Greg Wooldridge for Governor
Navy pilot, Captain (retired) Greg Wooldridge is running for Oregon governor as a Republican.

Next up, we talk to a new candidate for governor of Oregon, retired Navy officer and three-time Commander of the Blue Angels— Captain Greg Wooldridge.  Capt. Wooldridge is one of those rare Americans who has excelled in a field that is the fewest of the few: a Blue Angels pilot and Commander.

The training and talents needed to lead the very best—which demands extreme precision and high efficiency from everyone involved—requires a unique set of skills that Capt. Greg Wooldridge used to not only lead the Blue Angels but how he turned around a failing Naval bases into one of the premier bases in the world. You’ll hear how the training and leadership needed for precision flying is not just about the pilot but the entire team, ground crew, suppliers, and so many others who have to come together to put the planes in the air.

Tune in to hear why Capt. Wooldridge decided to run. You’ll how all those years of work and leading troops at the highest levels, Greg Wooldridge can bring a winning mindset to lead Oregon. You’ll hear why and how his leadership skills are desperately needed to turn Oregon around. And if he gets the chance, he can win in November and make all of us —and Oregon—winners again.

Air Dates: Nov 4  & 5, 2017 | James Hirsen & Dr. Tim Ball

This Week: Two of the big stories this week have been about corruption and the immorality of the Left: Hollywood’s and Hillary’s.  Both stories look into the mindset of cultural hypocrites of the worst kind. They claim to be champions of freedom and democracy but out of the eye of the public, they do whatever they can to shut up their victims with threats and intimidation.

Many of us outside of Hollywood suspected what was going on but now there’s evidence. And it’s deeper than we feared.

Hollywood especially lives a lifestyle they know is so repugnant to many that it can’t be exposed in the light of day.  So in darkness they tread on their victims’ rights, collude with any enemy who will live with them in that darkness, and then act shocked if and when they’re caught.  We’ve seen this week more and more victims come forward who were intimidated into silence by the powerful in Hollywood.

Hillary is the political expression of the rot in Hollywood and is the perfect example of the immorality of the Left. With a new scandal breaking every week, we’re witnessing Hillary’s behind-the-scenes manipulations. It’s an infection that’s spread through the ideology of the Left: use power to destroy your enemies. It threatens all of us when their power takes over the institutions we trust to protect us.

To really look at Hollywood we call on James Hirsen, who has been a conservative observing what goes on in Hollywood.  Mr. Hirsen not only discusses the despicable culture of the Harvey Weinstein’s but really gets into a deeper look at how this dark culture has grown and spread in our society.  It’s very clear why conservatives, and especially Christian conservatives, are not welcomed there, because those living in darkness don’t want any light shining on their secret lives.  We see this living out in the types of movies being made, and who the Hollywood crowd hangs around with — and supports politically.  That’s why we’ll also talk with James about Donna Brazile revealing of Hillary’s corruption and takeover of the DNC. Tune in to hear how damaging this culture has been and could continue to be on our way of life.

Then we talk with Dr. Tim Ball, who is an example of the ideological Left uses the law to try to destroy their enemies. He shares with us how he is fighting off not one but three lawsuits he’s been battling. He’s been sued by government-funded climatologists for such things as defamation—merely because he disagrees with their conclusions.  You’ll hear how a culture, like the green movement, has tried to use the courts not to protect, but to destroy. Imagine if Hillary had continued the efforts of the Obama administration to use the legal system to silence anyone who disagrees with them.

The Left hides behind the powerful. The Goliaths. And they hide in his shadow. But the good news is that with the light shining on them, the army of darkness will turn and run. Join us this week for a view of the battlefield.

Enough! Idiotic Enviro Policies Allowing 300,000 Acres To Burn is NOT Normal

Enough! Idiotic Enviro Policies Allowing 300,000 Acres To Burn is NOT Normal

Show Summary: This week we take an in-depth look at how and why the Oregon forest fires have exploded this year. We also look at where they’re occurring and why in those particular areas. The answer may surprise you. Don’t miss the environment myths that inevitably lead to these devastating forest fires and the lies they spread about how the devastation is “good” for the environment.

If Oregon’s do-nothing, let-it-burn policy of environmental destruction angers you, take it out on your representatives — state and federal. See this take action page for suggestions on what to do and how to contact them.

Original Air Dates: Sept 9 & 10, 2017 | Dr. Bob Zybach

There are currently over 300,000 acres of Oregon forest fires—and the vast majority didn’t need to happen. This week, Dr. Zybach explodes the environmental myths that have led to these devastating fires.

To find out the how and why the Oregon forest fires are out of control, we talk to Dr. Bob Zybach who not only did his dissertation on wildfires but has over 25 years of practical forest management as a reforester.  He predicted out -of-control forest fires as far back as 30 years ago and discusses with us how the environmental policies and practices have no basis at all in science or even common sense. As proof, none of the Oregon forest fires currently burning are on land he replanted. Good, sound management works.

Listen in to find out the facts—where these fires are burning and why there. You’ll be surprised at the amazing answer to where they are not burning.

Tune in to hear the economic devastation of the Oregon forest fires, including the jaw-dropping loss of income and jobs from not being able to help rebuild Houston or Florida, the insane messaging from the far-left as they try to find a way to justify these fires (see Willamette Week’s stupidity of how the Columbia River Gorge Wildfire could Help Wildlife “Flourish”), and now the pressure we must put on our state and federal government TO STOP THIS NONSENSE.

Take Action. Prevent more Oregon Forest Fires!

It’s time to change policies. Now.  This show will give you plenty of ammunition to contact your representatives at the state and local levels to demand change.

Angry? Ready to do something? Then take out your anger on your state and federal representatives.

Obama’s Attack on Free Speech

Obama’s Attack on Free Speech

Show Summary: Two months ago, we did a show on the Obama administration launching an unprecedented attack on free speech. Obama’s Attorney General was exploring the possibility of using the FBI to go after climate change “deniers.” At the time, many people couldn’t believe it. It would never happen. But after our show, we were contacted by Myron Ebell of the Competitive Enterprise. He said, yes, this is happening and our company was one of the organizations  that have already received a subpoena. This weekend, we’ll talk with him and Dr. Tim Ball, a private citizen, who has also sued because he didn’t believe in Global Warming. But wait until you hear the real motives behind Obama’s attack on free speech.

Original Air Dates: June 11 & 12, 2016 | Dr. Tim Ball & Myron Ebell

When Obama used the IRS to attack the Tea Party, people on both sides of the aisle were appalled. Naturally, Obama denied any responsibility. He would never condone such an attack on free speech.

Funny, then, how his administration is now using the FBI to attack free speech. That’s right. They’re using the power and crushing weight of the government to go after climate-change “deniers.” What is this? The 1400s Spanish Inquisition?

The Attack on Free Speech

Back in April we did a show titled Climate Hustle: The Rise of the Deniers (show #6-17, archived on our webpage) where we discussed how the Obama’s administration hated dissent.  To the point that Obama’s Attorney General asked the FBI to consider using RICO laws to prosecute scientists and corporations who are “deniers” of global warming.  When this story broke people were saying, “This can’t be happening!”  In fact, we were contacted by one of the organizations that was being sued to assure it was, in fact, happening. Subpoenas had already been issued to global warming skeptic scientists, non-profit organizations, and companies like ExxonMobil.

We start with Dr. Tim Ball, who received Canada’s first Ph.D. in Climatology.  He is a frequent guest of ours and sets the stage of the pressures being exerted on climate skeptics and why. He discusses whether countries like Canada even have free speech anymore and how he himself has sued for his opinions because he is a skeptic of global warming. Keep in mind, Dr. Ball is merely a retired professor, not the head of some multi-million lobbying firm. He is just an individual who is telling people where his scientific research has led him. And for that he is being sued to shut him down from speaking out against climate change.

Then we welcome Myron Ebell, a former Oregonian from the Baker City area, who is the Director of Center for Energy and Environment of the Competitive Enterprise Institution a libertarian think-tank here in the United States.  They are one of the organizations that has been targeted by the Obama Administration and a group of Attorney Generals for daring not to believe in global warming.

Tune in to find out the real motives behind this new attack on free speech. And don’t miss the Oregon connection and who helped coordinate this attack.
