Original Air Dates: Aug. 12 & 13, 2017 | Bobby Downes & James Hirsen

With it being August, and with everyone focused on recreation, this week we take a break from politics to take a look at movies and film making. Not that there isn’t a lot of fiction in politics, of course. In particular we look at a growing segment of the film industry: the Christian film market.

Christian Film Industry

This is an enormous market. There are tens of millions of people in this market segment who’d like to watch films without all the explicit sex, swearing, and lack of morals that are standard in so many of Hollywood’s films today.

Beyond the Mask - a Christian film industry productionWhile Hollywood is aware of this market, they have difficulty reaching it. All too often, it’s because they simply don’t understand it because they don’t have the same viewpoints or background. It’s like the NY Times, trying to write news stories for Conservatives. A lot of times, it just doesn’t work. The author doesn’t have the same mindset and just can’t resist getting in a dig at the very people they claim they’re trying to reach.

Beyond the Mask -The leading mercenary for the British East India Company, Will Reynolds has just been double-crossed and now is on the run in the American Colonies. Read more…

To learn about the Christian film market we turn to the experts that do get it. Our first guest, Bobby Downes, is the CEO and founder of ChristianCienema.com, a marketplace for Christian films made by Christians for Christians. Think of it as the iTunes for Christian movies. We discuss the difficulties facing Christians in Hollywood, and how his company has been a driving force behind raising the quality standards  for Christian films. It used to be Christian films were seen as second-rate or poor quality but a quick look at their site will dispel that notion. Instead, these Christian films understand Middle America, and use film to communicate the positive messages of Christianity through entertaining, high-quality feature films.

James Hirsen

Then we talk with James Hirsen about the continuing nonsense in Hollywood and why they don’t put out top Christian movies like they did in the Golden Age of Hollywood. Is there really a hostility there or is it hype?  We discuss the notion of being blackballed for exercising free speech, California’s secessionist movement (yes, they really are pushing it) and their continuing confusion over why Trump won. Here’s a hint: now they’re actively recruiting “movie stars” to run for office. Is there a chance they could win?

Perhaps they’re getting mixed up on the difference between being popular and populist politics.

Dems IT Scandal and Evidence of the Deep State

Dems IT Scandal and Evidence of the Deep State

Show Summary: We talk with Luke Rosiak of The Daily Caller News Foundation about the Democrat’s on-going IT scandal that may have exposed dozens of House Democrats to security breaches. This is a story the mainstream media continues to ignore. Why? Could it be reverse discrimination? And why is Debbie Wasserman Schulz so nervous? And then we talk with former deep-cover FBI Special Agent John Ligato about evidence for the Deep State, its origins, and its active players—and unwitting surrogates. Do both of these stories have blackmail at their heart?

It’s not a great surprise when the mainstream media ignores a story that could injure the Democrats. But use your imagination for a moment.

White Supremacists Compromise Republican Computers

Just imagine if three brothers and two of their wives were all members of a White supremacist group and that these five managed the IT for dozens of Republican Congressmen. Even more damning, that the Republicans sat on some of the most powerful committees, including the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, the Homeland Security Committee, and the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. These committees handle extremely sensitive, classified information, including national security information. Imagine if one of the Republicans caught up in the scandal was Reince Priebus, the former chair of the Republican National Committee.

Now imagine if those White supremacists had access to all of those Republicans’ emails, sent and received (including emails sent to and from other Republicans, the White House, and the RNC). Imagine if those White supremacists had access to everything on their computers. Not just emails but documents and files, databases, addresses, strategies, and more.

Would it concern you if, for some reason, they were among the Hill’s highest paid staff—despite the fact some of them never showed up for work? Would that raise flags? Or how about if they had huge financial problems, including several questionable real-estate deals and a more than a million dollar bankruptcy? Or that one of them had received a $100,000 loan from a Russian politician? A Russian politician who was currently a fugitive from the US Justice system?

And what if the laptops of Reince Priebus had been seized by the Capitol police. And yet, despite the five of them being banned from the House IT system, despite the shady finances, Preibus refused to fire them. Wouldn’t that be a little suspicious that he wouldn’t fire them?

Deep State Debbie Wasserman Schultz
Dems have a major IT scandal that no one is talking about

This is exactly what happened — except instead of White supremacists, they were Pakistani Muslims. Instead of Republicans, it was dozens of House Democrats. Instead of a Russian politician, it was an Iraqi politician. And instead of Reince Priebus, it was Debbie Wasserman Schulz.

Now what could DWS possibly have on her computers that she wouldn’t want others to see?

We talk with Luke Rosiak of The Daily Caller about his incredible investigative articles into the story the media continues to ignore. Why are they ignoring it and what could be behind all of this? Is it part of the Deep State? Perhaps blackmail?

See below for links to Luke’s fascinating stories on the Democrats’ IT scandal. Don’t miss the video of Debbie Wasserman Schultz confronting the Chief of the Capitol Police as she desperately tries to get her laptop back.

The Deep State

Then we turn to a former deep-cover FBI Special Agent, John Ligato, who has an excellent article on LifeZette.com, “Former FBI Agent: Deep State Exists and Is Trying to Bring Down Trump.”

This former Special Agent walks us through the formation of the Deep State (aka “Shadow Government”) and its origins, and how it’s been perpetrated. He gives us his insights, as an investigator and analyst, who the players are and their motives.

There are two kinds of players: active players and unwitting accomplices. Mr. Ligato walks us through the FBI’s culture, the players, its origins, and the decisions that how the Deep State has been able to undermine our President from within.  Don’t miss how the Deep State is being used and if it can be stopped.

Do both of these stories have blackmail at their heart? Be sure to tune in to hear one of our most gripping shows yet.

Air Dates: July 8 & 9, 2017 | Dr. Tim Ball

Too many times the dance of geopolitics does not start off with a waltz, as is such the case of North Korea, who launched an ICBM this week that had the potential of reaching Alaska—not to mention China, Russia, and Japan.  No longer can we be a wallflower of diplomacy as we did in Obama’s presidency by refusing to dance with our partners. North Korea chose an aggressive tune, which changed what America’s response must be.  But what does North Korea want and what do they expect to gain by firing off a highly threatening ICBM?  And why is China quietly standing by and at times working overtime to prop up this rogue nation even as they attempt ever more deadly attacks on other innocents?

That’s our discussion this week: the motivations behind the actions taken by these nations and the cascade of changing politics based on the moves of the others.

Geopolitics looks at the borders and the resources, history, and politics within those border, as well as the interaction of countries. Borders are manmade but they define a country’s assets and, because they are manmade, they at times separate and divide people and cultures which can have long-term and far-reaching effects, including separating a country from what they feel they need to survive.  We look at unanswered questions of borders of sea and sky —and who makes these decisions?  Our main focus is North Korea and China. Could China have a reason to keep the Koreans divided? We discuss this and much more this week with our guest Dr. Tim Ball, an expert on geopolitics and the agreements, or disagreements, the come over time.

We also dissect the president’s trip to Poland and why it was the perfect background to discuss the role of geopolitics in Europe.

Air Dates: July 1 & 2, 2017 | Greg Leo

Hot dogs, apple pie, picnics, fireworks! What a great time of the year. And once again we’re joined by Greg Leo (greg@theleocompany.com), I Spy’s “in house” historian, for our annual Fourth of July Show.

On last year’s annual Fourth of July show, we talked about the English Civil War and America’s first big milestone, the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1826 and all the festivities for the jubilee.  This year, we’re taking a closer look at those fifty years in between.

American Revolution War vet, Lemuel Cook. Enlisted in 1781 at age 16. He served at the Battle of Brandywine and was present at the Surrender at Yorktown.
American Revolution War vet, Lemuel Cook. Enlisted in 1781 at age 16. He served at the Battle of Brandywine and was present at the Surrender at Yorktown.

Like today, there was a lot of disunity in America.  Having fought two wars with the strongest nation in the world, America was being pulled apart by the War of 1812 and many states weren’t on board with disenfranchising themselves from England. There were secret political meetings to undermine the President. And just like today, there was also a fierce battle going on between the two political parties, the Federalists and the Republicans.  One wanted to grow the federal government while the other wanted it to shrink.

Tune in to find out how and why America prevailed and how the second and third generations of the Revolution managed to keep alive the most extraordinary experiment of self-governance — the American Republic.  And don’t miss the last letter Thomas Jefferson ever wrote, as his poor health forced him to decline an invitation to attend the 50th Jubilee, that for one last time clearly and poignantly expressed the heart and soul of the Declaration of Independence.

Join us to celebrate July 4th, our Independence Day!

Click-Bait Media isn’t New

Click-Bait Media isn’t New

Show Summary: The mainstream media finally got their first win — an open assault on a Republican Congressman. We are in dangerous, dangerous territory and the media is still willing to sell its soul and America to sell a few ads. Turns out today’s click-bait media isn’t so new. But it’s still dangerous. This week: focusing on the media lies, fictions, Comey, and the huge story they’re not covering.

Original Air Dates: June 17 & 18, 2017 | Kathryn Blackhurst & Scott McEwen

The kind of sensationalism that the NY Times, Washington Post, and others are all using to drive up their online views is nothing new. It’s been around for at least 100 years. For those who think this is “nothing new” and think nothing of it, you’re wrong. Dead wrong. Don’t miss Mark’s opener to find out why there is a dangerous precedent to today’s journalism and how the media has pushed us into war. Don’t think for a moment they will stop going after Donald Trump.

Kathryn Blackhurst

We start out with Kathryn Blackhurst, a political reporter for Laura Ingraham’s LifeZette (lifezette.com). She has two great articles we discuss with her, about the shooting inspired by the media, and the big story that the mainstream media is ignoring.

Inside James Comey's head cartoon
Did you catch last week’s cartoon?

Perhaps it’s because it completely undermines their entire story line against Trump, no doubt.

We start out by discussing the horrific shooting that happened this week as a Bernie staffer finally took the actions so many on the Left have been promoting, intentionally or not—taking up arms and attacking Republicans.  CNN, MSNBC, and so many other of the Leftist “talking heads” and “comedians” bear some responsibility here. But so does the NY Times and the Washington Post. They have been working to undermine the election and call it fraudulent; with their near-constant hate speech, it was only a matter of time before this happened.

Kathryn also shares that story that the media is working so hard to ignore. Is this the smoking gun President Trump needs?

We also get her views, as a relatively new journalist, on the media industry itself. Does she see hope on the horizon? What’s been her experiences as someone fresh to the industry? And are the Left-wing biases we hear so much about real?

You can see all of Kathryn’s recent news articles here.

Scott McEwen

After Kathryn, we turn to NY Times bestselling author, Scott McEwen, who has written both fiction and non-fiction (as has most NY Times writers, apparently). We ask for his thoughts, as a writer, on the media and the constant anti-Trump drumbeat.

Scott is also an attorney (a recovering one anyway) and gives us his thoughts on Comey’s recent testimony — that Comey leaked FBI work products and details about the Hillary Clinton investigation where Loretta Lynch ordered Comey to refer to the Hillary email scandal as a “matter” rather than an “investigation.” Does it matter?

We also get his thoughts on the Deep State. As a writer, Scott has a lot of contacts in the intelligence community. Tune in to find out what they’re telling him about Comey and a lot more. Could they topple Trump? Tune in to find out.

Be sure to visit our I Spy Radio Store to order Scott’s books! Dad will love them for Father’s Day, even if they’re a little late. They’re definitely worth the wait.

(We capitalize that because to those on the political left, it’s a religion.) Tune in to hear how withdrawing from the Paris Accord may be the next Leftist derangement syndrome.

Air Dates: June 10 & 11, 2017 | Dr Tim Ball & James Hirsen

Climate change is the ultimate “heads I win, tails you lose” marketing scheme. If the earth warms, they can say, “See?!? We need to DO something!” But if the earth cools they can say “See?!? Our efforts are working!”

But the whole thing reminds me of a Gilligan’s Island episode – The professor had set up a measuring stick in the lagoon and after carefully recording the depths he came to the conclusion the island was sinking. Soon, he had the entire island in uproar as they packed everything up and moved to higher ground — that is, until they found out that Gilligan had been using the stick for his lobster traps and kept moving the stick further and further from shore to deeper water.

Likewise, the so-called “science” of global warming is ripe with fraud, including fudging the temperature readings when the warming stopped.

This week, we talk with Dr. Tim Ball about what it means for the U.S. to withdraw from the Paris Accord. While President Trump said it was a “bad deal” for America, it goes far, far deeper. Now, by withdrawing, it is starting an a cascading effect that has impacts for the U.S., the Leftist movement, the U.N., and much more.

We also talk about coal and what we ought to be doing instead of what we are doing—which is so often the case with anything Washington D.C. gets its grubby fingers on.

The James Comey Show

Kathy Griffin led the news this week for her lunacy but the lunacy of the Left wasn’t done there. Enter the Comey Show.

The day we talked with James Hirsen, the Comey testimony had just concluded so we just had to talk to James about what had happened. Comey’s testimony put the Trump-Russian collusion story to rest, or should have but we’re sure the Left will continue its effort to do all it can to undermine President Trump.

We do talk about Kathy Griffin and the nonsense coming out of Hollywood, which is sounding more shrill and desperate. Will studios like Marvel finally get the message?

Show Summary: Sometimes, it’s not that the mainstream media is creating Fake News. Sometimes, they just have no clue. On this week’s show, we talk two issues the media is under-reporting: net neutrality and the cultural success of Trump’s trip to Saudi Arabia. On the latter—what were they afraid of discovering?

Air Dates: June 3 & 4, 2017 | Chad Wilkinson & Kamal Saleem

We have a very packed show as we tackle two big stories: so-called “Net Neutrality” and President Trump’s Middle East trip.   With both stories we see the common thread of the MSM not looking deeply into the story and marketing their agendas rather than reporting the real news.  Instead they work overtime to give us filler information with very adept marketing skills to persuade us that what we’re looking at is really very simple to understand.

But as we dig into both stories we find that the reality is really the opposite and without understanding whole picture the public is bound to be kept in the dark about important information that keeps us both informed and safe.

We start with Net Neutrality, a term the Left uses to try and make us (the users) believe this government regulation will give us a fair playing field online.  In typical Orwellian double-speak, they claim it will open up competition when it will do the opposite.  The reality is, we’re really killing off the internet through a 1,000 regulations.

Chad Wilkinson, Communications Director for the new non-profit Free Our Internet (www.freeourinternet.org), walks us through the deceptions that Obama, Soros, and many others want to hide behind while trying to sell the idea the internet will remain open and assessable to all.  Think about it: what are the chances George Soros actually wants a more open internet?  Tune in to find out more about the goals of the people pushing “Net Neutrality” and how President Trump  is looking to rollback the Obama-era regulations.

Donald Trump at the Saudi sword dance
The sword dance had cultural significance but the MSM ignored it. Tune in to hear why.

Then we check in with our good friend Kamal Saleem to discuss recent President Trump’s recent Middle East trip. You’ll hear some subtle, cultural nuances that reveal this was a far, far more successful trip than the mainstream media want to let on. Or even realize — because they never bothered to ask the right people. But Kamal grew up in the Middle East and shares insights into the ceremonies, and even the differences in handshakes between Obama and Trump.

Tune in to learn how from a cultural stand point the phenomenal reception President Trump was given was all missed by the mainstream.  The same mainstream media that was all too anxious to poke fun at President Trump dancing with swords without ever taking the time to find out why this ceremony was important and what it meant for our relationship with Saudi Arabia — and what it all means for fighting terrorism coming out of the Middle East.

Don’t miss these the amazing aspects of Trump’s trip that everybody else ignored.

This week we’re looking at the never-ending spending spree of the Oregon legislature.   We’re already facing a $1.8 billion hole and, naturally, that pushes the D’s to try and find new and inventive ways to tax Oregonians.  Like letting the camel get its nose in the tent, they are trying to find new ways to push a sales tax while calling it something else.

If you haven’t been paying attention, you’ll be shocked to hear what the Democrats are doing and looking to spend — despite being in the hole already. Do Oregon legislators think they have a bottomless checkbook?

Democrats Obama and spending
Years of democrats and their spending spree have doubled our national debt

That’s the question we discuss with our guests.  First up is Rep. Knute Buehler, Bend, OR, a fiscal conservative who has problems with the spending that he has seen at the legislature.  Right now, Oregon has enough Republicans on board to stop the Democrats from passing a spending bill but it’s tight with only a one vote margin of error.  Listen to find out what we can expect on taxes and debt coming out of this legislative cycle.

Then we talk with Jonathan Williams of ALEC to find out what states are fiscally under control and maybe even growing their economy compared to those who are doing it wrong.  There are some surprises, except for Oregon, which has slipped in the rankings once again.  Tune in to find out why and what we could do to right the ship.To use this, copy all, use “add new” button at the top, paste.

We continue our in-depth examination of George Soros. You probably know him as the Darth Vader of the Left but after this week’s show, you’ll believe it.

As we discussed in last week’s show, Soros’s money not only is behind so much of the Left’s operations, he also is the organizing force behind them as well. He provides not jusy money but logistical and strategic support for, literally, thousands of groups—not only his own direct groups but all the groups that are supported by him and his groups.

He is also the catalyst for fundraising. In true socialist form, he promises funding but then convinces other people to spend their money instead.

Including from the U.S. tax payers.

He then uses these funds to sew the seeds of chaos and division. And right here in good ol’ Oregon, the Petri Dish for the Left, we’re bearing the brunt of his organizing.

The May Day Riots

It wasn’t that long ago that May Day was an annual celebration in Oregon. May poles. May Day parades. A day of fun and filled with nostalgia.

Nowadays, it’s riots in downtown Portland.

We talk with citizen journalist Leo Stratton, whose YouTube channel has over 200 videos and more than 1 million views, and who was there at “Ground Zero” when the May Day riot broke out. We talk with Leo about what he saw and what it was like to be in the middle of it. Pay attention and listen for the tell-tale fingerprints of Soros  or one of his organizations at work.

Here’s Leo’s video from the May Day riot…

George Soros: Funding Chaos

Last week we discussed Soros’s background and upbringing which formed his life outlook. We heard how Soros told his biographer he believed he has “godlike powers” and sees himself as some sort of Messiah.

Yikes.

Perhaps that explains why he has no remorse from destroying the lives of millions of people all so he could make billions of dollars. Why should a god have remorse when all he’s trying to do is inflict a better world on people?

Tune in to hear the vast numbers of countries in which he is trying to force his view of the world on people and the damage he is doing.

And don’t miss: could there be a simple, ulterior motive to what’s driving him? One that is very un-godlike but much more in line with man’s basest drives.

George Soros and USAID

George Soros Army T-Shirts spotted in MacedoniaIf you listened to our virtual interview with Eva Bartlett, you heard about USAID, which is often used as a front organization for the CIA. In particular, USAID and MI6 (yes, the British spy organization) are funding the White Helmets in Syria—a group that “just happens” to show up immediately after civilians are killed, which many people call staged events. Perhaps it’s because the same kids keep getting rescued and often without a scrape or even a speck of dust on them. But did you know this same CIA group funds George Soros’s organization? Tune in to hear that and what other US agencies are giving away money to Soros. Your tax dollars at work.

Hope

Finally, don’t miss how—despite the billions George Soros has spent—it may be for naught and how and why his kingdom is beginning to unravel. Maybe us peasants are winning after all.

Show Summary: This week I Spy Radio shines a little daylight on George Soros. Journalist and author, Ron Arnold, who has studied the Left’s funding mechanisms for decades, pulls back the curtain on this shadowy figure. George Soros has his fingers in nearly every plot and ploy by the political Left: anti-gun, anti-free-speech, riots, politicians, and the environmental movement. Speaking of which, First up, Dr. Bob Zybach to discuss a common-sense plan to sell Oregon’s Elliot State Forest, if only Oregonians can convince their public officials to actually listen (you can take action here). Find out why Soros’s billion-dollar Leftist foundations are so successful, while billionaires on the Right fall short. Oh, and did we mention a former Soros staffer gave Ron the inside information on this Insider of Insiders? You won’t want to miss this.

Air Dates: May 6 & 7, 2017 | Dr. Bob Zybach & Ron Arnold

George Soros spends millions to topple governments. He makes billions from the ensuing chaos. He wields power across the globe, in part because of a compliant mainstream media—which is mute either because they fear him or because he buys their silence by supporting their Leftist causes. George Soros made his fortune from shrewd investments but also by betting on destruction (his famous short selling of the British pound) and by supporting dictators only to demand special favors from them after their “elections.”

If there is an anti-traditional-American-values organization, you can bet George Soros is likely behind it. Anti-guns, anti-traditional marriage, anti-federalist, anti-religion, and on and on. He is also known for heavily “investing” in Far Left environmental causes, in part because they are anti-capitalism. (As we say here on I Spy Radio, healthcare is how the Left controls people; the environmental movement is how the Left controls industry and corporations.)

Dr. Bob Zybach on the Sale of the Elliot State Forest

We start the show with Dr. Bob Zybach. For years, the Far Left environmentalists have had a stranglehold on politics in Oregon. This has led to massive waste and lost revenue from State Public Lands, like the Elliot State Forest, which is northeast of Coos Bay on the Oregon coast.

How bad is it? Oregon loses tens of millions every year thanks to mismanagement—when it should be making at least $5 million per year. The losses have been piling up, year after year, with timber either rotting away or burning away in forest fires, that the State has decided to cut its losses (rather than cutting trees—at a profit, mind you) that Oregon has decided to sell this 80,000 acres. The land is valued at $800 million. But thanks to the terms and conditions and regulations piled on it, they only received one bid: for $200 million. Just 25% of the value. And which will only generate 10 jobs.

But there’s a better way. Dr. Zybach walks us through what is happening with the sale and how a decades’ old, common-sense plan could be the answer. If only Oregonians can make politicians listen.

Exposing George Soros, Part 1

We then turn to Ron Arnold, for Part 1 of our examination of George Soros, the billionaire behind so much of America’s current woes. Mr. Arnold got his journalistic start back in the 1990s when Oregon had the Spotted Owl fiasco that ended up destroying Oregon’s logging industry, much to the surprise of many in the timber business.  They were surprised because nobody took it seriously that an owl could shut down a whole industry.

Mr. Arnold has written ten books and edited 12. His special focus is the means the Left funds its operations. He has made a special focus of George Soros. And, thanks to a former Soros staffer, Mr. Arnold has the goods on George Soros.

We’ll walk you through how George Soros lurched into politics—thanks to several names you’ll recognize and who are still operating behind the scenes today.  You’ll also hear how Soros developed unique operational strategies and why they are more successful than those on the Right.

This week is a broad look at George Soros and how he spins his many-layered webs. Tune in to hear how Soros helped bring down the Soviet Union, his organizational operations, his hypocrisies, and how he does what he does.

Next week, we’ll look further behind the scenes and some specific examples of how he seeks to cripple America. Don’t make the mistake of thinking he’s not trying to take America down.

After all, he’s already done it in other countries.
