Some states are scrambling for money as big debts are coming due. And Oregon is leading the way—just not in finding the right answers that would promote economic health.

Instead, Democrat Governor Kate Brown seems to be almost working overtime to crush our state’s innovative spirit. So she’s not only killing our ability to not only pay our bills but taking an axe to what could be (with better management) a positive economic environment for small businesses. Or even attract them from other states.

But not in Oregon. Instead, there is a real storm coming for small businesses here in Oregon.

Crushing Small Business. Oregon Style

One of the things you’ll hear in the show this week is how Oregon is targeting small business by divorcing them from the Trump tax break. But then there’s a coming sales tax.

Yes. A sales tax in Oregon.

This is the internet sales tax that is being heard next week in front of the Supreme Court. Oregon small businesses would be forced to collect taxes for states like New York and Washington that have their own sales tax.

Regulations and taxes crush small businesses. Oregon is the example of what NOT to do.But unbeknownst to many, Oregon’s own State Attorney General has signed onto an Amicus Brief to allow a national sales tax on internet purchases.  This will be crushing to Oregon’s small businesses with the increased costs of processing this sales tax. For other states.

It’s the foot in the door to finally create the sales tax Oregon’s Democrats and Big Government Republicans have been longing for.


See below for an excerpt from the brief that includes not only more taxes but more prying into your personal lives. Have our elected leaders gone insane? Has no one heard of cutting spending?

Oregon Democrats hate cutting spending almost as much as they hate cutting trees.

Show Flow

We start by discussing Congress’s Omnibus bill, which sets the stage for the rest of the discussion.

Then we move to the Left’s “boogeyman”: Kansas and their ill-advised massive tax cut and spending increase. Why? Because the Left uses Kansas to try to scare other states away from cutting taxes. We debunk the myth because what happened in Kansas can help other states learn what not to do (hint, hint Oregon!).

Next, we talk about what Oregon is doing to crush small business, including taking away tax cuts. It’s a punishment that falls on small businesses and only small businesses. Then, it’s the internet sales tax and the grand daddy of spending boondoggles, PERS.

But there is good news (just not in Oregon). Don’t miss what nearby state to watch as the primary example of how smart policies really can create economic health.

Oregon’s Attorney General Rosenblum’s Amicus Brief

“Their [businesses] advanced online platforms boast impressive technology that enables them to not only comply (easily) with State [tax] collection laws, but also capture extensive data about their customers. According to one commentator, an online retailer can effortlessly track demographic information that includes “‘your age, whether you are married and have kids, which part of town you live in, how long it takes you to drive to the store, your estimated salary, whether you’ve moved recently, what credit cards you carry in your wallet and what Websites you visit … data about your ethnicity, job history, the magazines you read, if you’ve ever declared bankruptcy or got divorced, the year you bought (or lost) your house, where you went to college, what kinds of topics you talk about online, whether you prefer certain brands of coffee, paper towels, cereal or applesauce, your political leanings, reading habits, charitable giving and the number of cars you own.’”

The full Amicus brief can be read here (PDF)

Official Statement from I Spy Radio on KUIK Closure

Official Statement from I Spy Radio on KUIK Closure

We feel blessed to have received many emails and phone calls from former listeners of KUIK who have reached out to let us know we’re missed, to find out where we’re landing in Portland — and what they can do to help. Here’s the latest.

Losing KUIK

KUIK Superstar Jayne Carroll talks Russian collusion on I Spy Radio
KUIK Superstar, Jayne Carroll. She’ll be missed! But she’s podcasting on thejaynecarrollshow.net

Like so many of our listeners in the Portland area, we were caught off guard and deeply saddened by the sudden sale and disposal of KUIK, 1360-AM in Hillsboro. KUIK was a valuable and needed conservative voice in the Portland area and its left us without a Portland home.

Over the past week, we feel so incredibly blessed to have received notes, emails, and phone calls from former listeners of KUIK, who reached out to us to offer encouragement, to let us know we’re missed, and to find out where we’re landing in Portland. And to ask what they can do to help.

Please know that this is a bit of a slow process as we work our way though the options. It’s important to us to find a good fit for our show, where we compliment their lineup and vice versa.

As such, we’ve targeted our top choices of radio stations in Portland, based on their reach and current programming. We’ve already reached out to one of these stations and are allowing them some time to consider our show. We feel we’d be a good fit for their programming and we’d bring active listeners in the Portland area, such as all of you. If they pass, we’ll continue down our list until we find the right match.

What can we do?

People ask us what they can do. Some have already offered to contact stations on our behalf.

One of the best things you can do right now is to let us know what your top stations are. Also, the times and days (Saturday or Sunday) when you’re most likely to listen.  We will compile that information, along with our choices, and include your choice of station in our submission process.

Active voices will be heard.  Contacting a station that you want us to be on in the Portland market is up to you.  We always appreciate your support in whatever form that takes!

In the meantime go to our About Us page to find our current list of stations, times, and days of when we’re aired.  Remember, all our stations stream live. 

Also, our producer Karla Davenport, sends out a weekly show promo e-mail on Friday’s.  Email her at karla@ispyradio.com and put “add me to the list” in the subject line so that you too can hear what’s in store for the week’s show.

Thank you again to our fans who’ve been so very encouraging during this time. We hope to have some good news to share very soon.

 

Liberal Hypocrisy: Facebook & Guns | Plus Trump’s Real Strategy in China

Liberal Hypocrisy: Facebook & Guns | Plus Trump’s Real Strategy in China

Show Summary: Hollywood liberal hypocrisy. Celebrities wouldn’t have any standards if they didn’t have double standards, whether it’s about guns or Facebook. Another law Obama broke. Plus, Trump’s real strategy in China. We talk with two bestselling authors, James Hirsen (Tales from the Left Coast) and Scott McEwen (co-author of American Sniper).

What do all slaves, since the beginning of human history have in common?

Well, you’ll have to tune in to find out the answer to that one.

But what do all Liberals have in common? Hypocrisy of course. Liberal hypocrisy is rooted in their subjective reasoning. It’s not “murder” if it’s the unborn. It’s not “breaking the law” if it’s illegal immigrants coming here to take advantage of America’s generosity.


James Hirsen on Liberal Hypocrisy

James Hirsen is a NT Times bestselling author (Tales from the Left Coast), international business attorney and commentator on all things Hollywood. He’s also a frequent guest on I Spy Radio.

Liberal hypocrisy is always apparent (except to them) but no more so than in the recent Facebook scandal and the anti-gun “March for our lives” protest. Why?

There is no why. It’s just the bottomless barrel of liberal hypocrisy of course.

Liberals and Hollywood celebrities are fleeing Facebook. And shrieking at Mark Zuckerburg as they slam the door behind them.Why? Because Facebook sold data on 87 million users to Cambridge Analytica who bought it for the  Trump campaign. Gasp!

Liberal hypocrisy. Ban everything. Ban America!You’ve probably heard elsewhere that Liberals were perfectly okay with Facebook giving Obama access to data—and the Liberals even praised Obama for being oh-so-clever. But not just 87 million users. Facebook gave away data on 190 million users.

Did you know Obama and Facebook may have actually broken a law by doing this? (Don’t hold your breath about the DOJ going after either of them.)

And then there’s guns. The Hollywood liberals—who make their millions selling movies about guns, using guns, shooting guns, and making it all look cool—took to the streets to march for gun confiscation — while surrounded by armed guards.

Trump Strategy on China

Up next, it’s bestselling author, Scott McEwen (co-author of American Sniper) on some international issues. We’ll talk over some strategic war games being played out on the world stage — not so much militarily but economically as well.

Remember: economics IS warfare. Scott has some surprising insights into what Trump is doing with China and why.

Scott lives on the border in San Diego. What’s he think of the horde of illegal immigrants marching their way through Mexico?

Scott’s fans will also want to hear the updates on his upcoming movie. And some updates on two new books that will be released this year  which have already been optioned for movies.

Plus, rock star Ted Nugent, a superstar defender of the Second Amendment on Oregon’s war on guns. And what’s the difference between Patriots and the Deep State anyway?

Air Dates: March 24 & 25, 2018 | Jerome Corsi & Ted Nugent

This Week:  We are in a constant state of war. If you heard last week’s show with a former jihadist, you know there are many forces trying to destroy it from within and without.  It’s a constant barrage against our way of life and the belief of our inalienable rights to freedom. The freedom given to us by our maker and reflected in our 1st and 2nd Amendments.

When it comes to threats to our country, we think of military threats. Countries building up their militaries and nuclear powers.

But there are also hidden threats. Hidden right in our midst.

The Depths of the Deep State

For decades, we’ve had the invisible and sinister attempts to destroy our freedoms by people working within our government agencies to form the Deep State, who go undetected as they dig deeply into our systems with loyalty to themselves and to the government, not the people.  The Deep State will lash out and oppose anyone who wants to deprive the government of power or anyone who wants to return power to citizens.


Fortunately, our country has many patriots who are rooted in our Constitutional rights and work feverishly in preserving them for all Americans. This week I Spy is honored to have two of those Patriots on our show.

Jerome Corsi: Killing the Deep State

First up we are joined by Dr. Jerome Corsi author of many bestsellers including Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry and Obama Nation. Now, Dr. Corsi has a new book out Killing the Deep State: A Fight to Save President Trump.

Tune in to hear just how deep the roots go in agencies such as the FBI, CIA, and EPA. You’ll hear how those and other agencies are tied to gaining power to destroy America and leave us helpless to fight off their silent coup—and the lengths they’ll go to sabotage President Trump.

Is Jeff Sessions incompetent? Or a lurking menace about to strike the Deep State?

Do members of the Deep State see themselves as patriots?

Ted Nugent: Second Amendment Superstar

Then we’re joined by 1st and 2nd Amendment advocate, and rock star, Ted Nugent.  We talk to him about Oregon’s new gun control laws as he calls out to voters to show up for the governor’s election to turn this state red.  Ted Nugent adds the energy and commitment as he discusses why we can win back our gun rights while reversing draconian legislation approved by far-left Kate Brown.  And in doing so we have a chance to make this state red — and get us into the black.

Stop Oregon Sanctuaries

A handful of lawmakers and Democrat Governor Kate Brown, have turned Oregon into a sanctuary state. Shouldn’t Oregon voters get to decide? You can help get it on the ballot. Head to StopOregonSanctuaries.org. Print, sign, and mail. It’s that simple.

Hopes of Islam coming True?

Hopes of Islam coming True?

Show Summary: In the birthplace of Free Speech, the U.K., citizens are quickly losing their right of free speech. Activists are being jailed. Journalists expelled or banned from Britain. Facebook and Twitter urged to ban “hateful” posts. The one thing all these have in common? Islam. Are Muslims beheading Free Speech?

Air Dates: March 17 & 18, 2018 | Kamal Saleem

This Week:  Kamal Saleem entered the United States after being commissioned by a Saudi Prince to destroy it from within.  His intent? To undermine society and American culture and heritage through the training he’s received from the PLO and Muslim Brotherhood.

The goal was to pave the way for Islam to take over by undermining our Constitutional rights such as free speech.  Thankfully, Kamal saw the light and not works to expose the tactics and strategies jihadists use to wage war on other countries—not just through open warfare but subtle, cultural attacks.

What better way to do that then to swamp countries with “immigrants” and “refugees” that build communities that fight with law enforcement at every turn?

Follow Peter Sweden on Twitter to hear first hand what has happened to Sweden and their loss of Free Speech

Is the West Losing the War on Free Speech?

This past week there have been many flare-ups throughout the world that caught our attention.  Especially so when you think about freedom of speech.

Case in point, Dr. Tim Ball has seen his life dramatically changed in Canada due to multiple lawsuits filed against him—all because he dared to speak out about global warming when he questioned the validity of the science.

Free speech in Canada? Not so much.

That’s right. The scientific community, the foundation of which is asking questions is shutting down the right of a fellow scientist for daring to question the establishment’s position.


Free Speech Dying in the UK

This is free speech in the UK. Journalist Laura Southern banned from entry into the UK
This is free speech in the UK. Journalist Laura Southern banned from entry into the UK

England was the forerunner of many of America’s rights through English common laws and philosophies, which grew into one of our most cherished rights: the freedom of speech.

But it’s dying in England.

The concept of Free Speech, as we know it today, originated in England. Before the English Bill of Rights in 1689, you could exercise your right of Free Speech but it could get you killed for what you said.

Islamic Takeover of the UK

But since the rapid rise in Muslim immigration into England—and no, not all Muslim immigrants are bad—there have been a strong effort to end Free Speech. Right now, there is a concerted effort to replace freedom speech with Muslim ideology.

Wait. What?

Yes. In the UK, freedom of speech is being strangled by Muslims. How? By ensuring no one is able to criticize or speak up against Islam. And that includes speaking out against the crimes committed by Muslims.

Examples of Losing Free Speech

Muslims vs free speech. Behead those who insult Islam.In London, Muslim Mayor Kahn, is asking that Facebook and Twitter take a strong stance to eliminate what he considers “hate speech” from users’ posts.  But he only points to posts that criticize him or Islamic beliefs. Also, three journalists were recently banned from even entering the U.K. when they wanted to talk to so-called hate groups that are trying to raise the alarm about what is happening to England in the wake of mass immigration.

What has happened to the birthplace of Free Speech?

Islamic Attacks on Free Speech are Real

With that we welcome our guest, Kamal Saleem, to examine these worldwide occurrences in other countries and in the US, on how the Islamic beliefs are trying to take down our right to voice opinions that may be unpopular to some Muslim populations.

We examine England, Sweden, Israel, South Africa, and America (think Texas bombings) as we look at some very current actions that have impacted many citizens and their abilities to speak freely without recrimination or even jail.

FBI Whistleblowers in Las Vegas Shooting: It’s ISIS

And there is news about the Las Vegas mass shooting that points to ISIS—exactly what we had talked with Kamal about months ago.

That previous show with Kamal: The Las Vegas Mass Shooting — Former Jihadist Reveals what FBI & Media are Ignoring

What’s it say about Free Speech here in America if our own government agencies are afraid to say anything against Islam or known terrorist groups like ISIS.

Radical Islam vs Free SpeechThere is a war on free speech.

That’s what it says.

In the UK. In the US. And it’s spreading. What we’re seeing in so many countries, are people actually being jailed for speaking up and about what is happening in their countries.

And if you think that can’t happen or won’t ever get that bad here in the US consider our own Deep State and its election spying.  Had Hillary gotten the reins to the White House, it is almost certain that radical Muslims would be in powerful seats controlling our governmental agencies.

Be thankful. And tune in to hear what is coming if we don’t turn this around.

Oregon Governor Candidates

Oregon Governor Candidates

Show Summary: Our best-of-the-best go back-to-back. This week we replay our two previous interviews with Republican Oregon governor candidates, Sam Carpenter and Capt. Greg Wooldridge. Because if Oregon is going to survive, we need different leaders. And that means dumping Kate Brown.  Because you can’t keep voting for the same people and expect different results.

This week: We replay our two previous interviews with the two leading Oregon governor candidates on the Republican side: businessman Sam Carpenter and former Navy pilot, Capt. Greg Wooldridge.

Last weekend Republicans gathered at the annual Dorchester event to do a little meet and greet and to plot the end of civilization.  (Or at least that’s what the Democrats think goes on there.) Over the last decade, Oregon has been faced with a Democrat stranglehold on the legislature and governor’s office.  As a result, we’re now staring down the double-barrel of high deficits and a Democrat-led march toward higher taxes.

Oregon governor candidates

First of all, if you believe The Oregonian, the choice for Oregon governor candidates comes down to one person. Oregon is destined (or “doomed”) for another four years of Kate Brown—and more Democrat spending.

The Oregon Governor's Race
The problem for Oregon’s Republican candidates

Well, maybe two people: Kate Brown and Knute Buehler. A Democrat and a democrat-lite.

But are we doomed to go down that road?

No. Thankfully, this year’s Oregon governor candidates include two solid, conservative Republicans. Republican Oregon governor candidates who could actually win not just the Oregon Republican candidacy but win in November too.

Oregon governor’s race 2018

On this week’s show, we replay our previous interviews with the two best Republican candidates who could challenge—and beat—Kate Brown.

With the May primary fast approaching, tune in to hear our previous two interviews with Sam Carpenter and Capt. Greg Wooldridge back-to-back. This weekend’s show will help you compare the two Oregon governor candidates who, we at I Spy Radio believe, are the best candidates in the race.

Did you leave the Republican Party? Find out how you can still vote in the Oregon primary

Either of these two men would be great leaders. And either of these two men would lead Oregon out of the self-digging pit that Oregon has put itself in—if we can’t unseat the Democrats.

Both men are conservatives. Both are strong leaders. And both are turnaround specialists. Sam has helped over 500 companies in Oregon return to profitability. He is the author of a widely respected book, Work the system: The Simple Mechanics of Making More and Working Less. Captain Greg Wooldridge was a three-time commander of the Blue Angels and went on to turn around a failing Naval base to make it the top naval base in the world. Like being a CEO of company with 8,000 employees.

In conclusion, let’s say that again: EITHER of these two men will be great for Oregon. They are the kind of leader Oregon desperately needs and one of them will stop us from sinking into a California-style black hole.

So who will it be? Who’s your choice?

The Oregon Primary Secret

Are you a conservative? Did you leave the Republican Party? That’s too bad because when you leave the party, then you can’t vote in the Republican primary. Right? But wait! There is a way you can vote in the primary for the Oregon Governor’s race.

Because here’s a little secret. You can plug your nose and rejoin the Oregon Republican party just long enough to vote in the primary to get a good conservative through the primary. Here’s how:

You have until April 24th to change your registration. Simply visit your county office or go to the Oregon Secretary of State’s website and change your party affiliation. You’ll get a Republican ballot for the primary, vote for your candidate, and then after the primary, May 15th, change your registration back to non-affiliate, independent or whatever.

Or. Consider staying in the Republican party. They need good people like you. And if you’re not in it, you don’t have a voice.

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.

What Fuels Oregon’s Health Care Transformation? Lies and Cash

What Fuels Oregon’s Health Care Transformation? Lies and Cash

Show Summary: The one thing the many tentacles of Oregon’s health care system have in common: the lies they tell to sell it. This week we expose the many lies told to pass Oregon’s health care transformation, and our predictions that came true. Oregon’s new health care sales tax—Measure 101? Yep. They lied. Plus, a new tax on small businesses—SB 1528B.

This Week: We’re talking with Lisa Lettenmaier, who, as an insurance agent pays close attention to the entire health industry, especially the insurance trade and health care/insurance costs.  We call on Lisa whenever we hear of legislative actions related to health care that are going to affect your life.

As we predicted and reported on back when the Coordinated Care Organization (CCO) model was first being implemented as part of Oregon’s health care transformation, our legislators had other motives and that  their “cheaper better system would not work using the CCO model.

This week, we check with Lisa about our past predictions about Oregon’s version of Obamacare and where all this is headed.

Health Care as a Human Right

One prediction about was that the Democrats’ real motive was to turn our health care system into a single payer system—also known as “universal health care” or “socialized medicine.” This has been the dream of Oregon’s Democrats since Day One of Oregon’s health care transformation: a slow, steady lurch toward universal health care.

We can tell you that, exactly as we predicted, Legislators are right now in this session are trying to pass universal health care under the mistaken belief that health care is a “human right.”

Here’s reality. It is not a “right” if it depends on someone else providing it to you.

This is not about “rights,” as those who support single payer systems falsely proclaim (including Republican candidate for governor, Dr. Knute Buehler does) it’s about gaining power.  Period.

And with Democrats firmly in control, the high costs of spending on Oregon’s health care transformation isn’t stopping nor will it go down.  Not to mention plenty of other Democrat pet spending ideas. Think “Cap and Trade,” “Carbon Tax”, and “Sales Tax.”  They’re all barreling your way.

Measure 101: They Lied

Remember Measure 101? Oregon’s new health insurance sales tax? Remember how they just needed this little bitty tax to “save” Medicaid? Remember how it was so desperately needed that if they didn’t get it, the poor and elderly would lose their insurance?

Yep. They lied about that too.

Listen to find out where the money from that new sales tax is actually going.

Oregon Democrats Punish Small Businesses

And don’t miss the discussion on yet new taxes, SB 1528B. The Oregon Democrats are working overtime to take away the very tax cuts Trump’s administration worked to get through. It is a tax on small businesses, including farmers and mom-and-pop stores—except for two professions. Tune in to hear who gets the loopholes.

Did Spooks Spook the Market? Economic Warfare and Market Sabotage

Did Spooks Spook the Market? Economic Warfare and Market Sabotage

Show Summary: After months of steady gains, the markets took a dive last week. Something about it all didn’t seem quite right. Right in the middle of the FBI memos exposing the Deep State? How convenient. Pundits blamed “robo-traders” and “market corrections.” But was it all just normal market volatility? Or could it have been manipulated? And if so, by whom? Because here’s the thing: economic warfare and market sabotage has happened before.

Air Dates: Feb. 17 & 18, 2018 | Kevin Freeman

This Week: Just imagine if you had the ability to create panic in the stock market like a precision bomb. You could make a lot of money when the sheep begin to stampede. Last week we had a bumpy ride with the Dow Jones and other markets showing incredible volatility and the timing of it was rather suspicious.

Think about it.  President Trump’s approval numbers start to climb.  Trump’s new fed chair was officially appointed.  CNN points to the stock downcast and that it was all Trump’s fault as they ducked out of Trump’s speech. And, of course, it sure took a lot of heat off the highly revealing Democrat-Russian collusion memos.

Was it just normal market volatility?  Or could it have been manipulation? And, if so, by whom? Yes. Because here’s the thing: economic warfare, market manipulation, and even market sabotage have all happened before.

Economic Warfare and Market Sabotage

Remember 2008?  It was proven that Russia had manipulated the big sell off on the stock market at that time—which actually had to be forcibly shut down by the government to stop a collapse. The panic that ensued. Then Presidential candidate, John McCain rushing back to Washington.

Long-time listeners of I Spy know that, yes, there was indeed manipulation in our markets in 2008—by Russia. (It might very well have been brought down if the Chinese hadn’t backed out at the last moments.) This was outright economic warfare. And it helped to usher in Obama’s presidency, who just happened to seem rather calm about the whole thing.  So was last week’s market volatility was normal or staged?

To figure this out we bring in Kevin Freeman, a world renowned expert on economic warfare and author of, Secret Weapon: How Economic Terrorism brought down the US Stock Market.  You’ll hear just how open these systems are to manipulation.  We also discuss automatic trading algorithms, “robo-brokers,” that go in and buy and sell when triggers and market conditions are met.  And if those are at work behind the scenes, how easily can those be manipulated to cause crashes?

Let’s not forget: George Soros has made an awful lot of money—not when the market goes up, but when it goes down. You don’t think he’d be happy to unleash a little economic warfare and financial terrorism?

Don’t miss our conversation on the dangers, the signs of war, and what you can do to protect yourself and your family’s financial health.

When Empires Fall | Russian Collusion and … the NFL?

When Empires Fall | Russian Collusion and … the NFL?

Show Summary: The more the Russian collusion onion is peeled back, the more clear it becomes the Democrats are at the center of it. Story after story this week shows the underhandedness of the Democrats, including setting up their political opponents by using the power of the federal government. Another empire of sorts is falling—the NFL. But could the whole “take a knee” scandal be part of a larger strategy? We know about the Democrats and Russian collusion. but the “NFL collusion” — with whom and by whom — will surprise you.

The more we peel back the Russian collusion onion the more we see the Democrats fingerprints on every aspect.  As the Inspector General rolls out the recovered text messages we see how Hillary, Warner, Schiff, and Obama look to be involved.

Russian Collusion Collusion Collusion

The latest domino, Senator Warner, wanted to secretly meet with a Russian oligarch in London while being careful of any paper trail.  We find out that two Russian comedians tripped up Schiff when he tried to get dirt on President Trump.  Hmm… These are the same people that jump in front of the nearest microphone to say how Trump is lying and that we shouldn’t trust him.  Hmm…

Forget Russian collusion. Forget Democrat collusion. This is about America.

If we could remove the ugliness of politics, shouldn’t both Democrats and Republicans be united against using the federal government to go after political opponents.? You’d think that even in today’s highly partisan Washington, this ought to be something that everyone could agree on.

But in reality we’re witnessing a moment in history when one side used the federal government to spy, got caught, and is now using the federal government to try to cover it all up. This is horrifying. Or should be.

Are the Democrats only sorry they got caught? Are the Republicans wishing they’d thought of it first? Why aren’t both sides united against stopping it from ever happening again?

KUIK Superstar Jayne Carroll talks Russian collusion on I Spy Radio
KUIK Superstar, Jayne Carroll

But who set the stage for changing the FBI into a weaponized agency?  Was it Obama, who, we found out this week, ” wants to know everything we’re doing.”

We welcome KUIK’s radio superstar, Jayne Carroll to discuss these actions by corrupted FBI agents and DOJ personnel and how our government, that is suppose to be responsive to the American people, are instead being used to do harm and not protect us as they’re supposed to do.

Super Bowl Wrap-Up

Burgess Owens - We know about the Democrats and Russian collusion but is there collusion in the NFL? And Why?
Former NFL star, Burgess Owens. “As heard on I Spy Radio…”

Then we talk with former Super Bowl winner, Burgess Owens, on what is really going on in the NFL and his thoughts of why they’re so protective of those who chose to kneel. He has some fascinating takes on the real reasons why they’re doing it.

Then we discuss the Congressional Black Caucus and their embarrassing performance at the State of the Union Address along with how the Black community is handling Obama’s lies about being involved in the FBI’s surveillance of Trump and the Hillary email scandal, his promises, and what he actually delivered. And is there a shift in the their outlook on Trump?
