UFOs vs Trump-Russia Collusion

UFOs vs Trump-Russia Collusion

Show Summary: What do UFOs and the Trump-Russia collusion narrative have in common? No evidence of collusion is now considered evidence of collusion. And even then, there is more evidence of UFOs than there is of Trump-Russia “collusion.” We talk with CIA whistleblower, John Kiriakou, about the state of the Justice Department.

This last week, CNN, MSNBC, and other “mainstream media” outlets actually declared that Trump-Russia collusion was now settled. Because the lack of evidence for Trump-Russia collusion must mean that Trump really is a Russian spy.

Yes. No evidence is now evidence.

Although, strangely enough, so far there is more evidence for actual UFOs than there is evidence for actual Trump-Russia collusion.

Media Desperation over Trump-Russia Collusion Narrative Falling Apart

While it’s laughable that the dinosaur media now thinks that the lack of evidence is somehow now evidence of Trump-Russia collusion, the rest of us aren’t laughing. Think about it. Now just the mere accusation of a crime is enough for a conviction. If we think you did it, you must have.

But it’s worse than that.

Mueller’s Trump-Russia Collusion Probe

While the media can make itself a joke, they can’t actually put anyone in jail. But a corrupt “justice” system can. And that’s the danger here. A justice system is only as just as the people in it. Comey, Mueller, Rosenstein—would you trust them to be fair and unbiased? What about John Brennan? Or Clapper?

The thing all those guys have in common is that each of them have openly lied to Congressional investigators. So why aren’t any of them in jail. Isn’t that what we do nowadays? Jail people who lied to or misled investigators? Just ask General Flynn, George Papadopalous, Carter Page — or our guest this week: John Kiriakou.

John Kiriakou

John is very familiar with how the FBI operates; setting up the people they’re investigating. In fact, he’s previously said on I Spy Radio that the joke at the CIA was that the FBI couldn’t get a conviction without setting up their victim. Kiriakou, like others swept up in the Mueller probe, was bankrupted into accepting a guilty plea, despite being cleared by the FBI of any wrongdoing.

Don’t miss John Kiriakou’s latest book: Doing Time Like a Spy

We talk with John about the state of the Mueller probe (and we mean probe in the best UFO sense) and what it says about the Justice Department.

We also discuss some deeply troubling aspects of our Justice System that ought to be worrying everyone. Including—and perhaps especially—Democrats.

Yes, Democrats. Democrats should be deeply troubled about the Mueller probe.

The Real Problem with the Mueller Probe

The problem with the Trump-Russia collusion Mueller probe is straightforward. It’s an abuse of power to pursue your political opponents. John Kiriakou knows a lot about being a helpless target of an all-powerful federal government that is hell-bent on a conviction. John Brennan demanded Obama jail him, and he did — by bankrupting Kiriakou until he had no choice but to plead guilty.

It’s the abuse of power Democrats need to worry about. Why? Because if they permit the Mueller probe to continue despite the fact there is no evidence, then they are helping to set the legal precedent for Republicans to “investigate” a future Democrat president.

This ought to be the kind of thing that unites Americans. Against their government. This is the kind of abuse of power our forefathers fought for in the American Revolution.

Tune in this week to hear more about why Americans, all Americans, need to start coming together and how that can begin to restore trust in our own government.

Oregon Democrats appear to think that if you earn money, it’s really not your money. It belongs to the state. You can tell because Oregon Democrats—who have super-majorities in Oregon’s house and senate plus the governorship—have billions in new taxes they want to unleash. Billions to extract from the 3.3 million Oregonians.

The Short List of Oregon Democrats New Taxes

Doubling the gas tax. Tripling taxes on beer and cigarettes. Fees (i.e. taxes) on restaurants. Vending machines. First in the nation carbon tax — plus a California-style cap-and-trade. (Hello $5 per gallon gasoline.) Fees (taxes) on bed and breakfasts. Spa visits. Fees (taxes) on tourism. Fees on small business. Middle business. Big business. Mining permit fee increases. Fees on timber lands. Fees on public utilities. Fees on home heating oil. Fees on

And if that isn’t enough, Oregon Democrats even want to remove property tax exemptions for non-profits and churches.

Yes, even God doesn’t pay enough in taxes.

At this rate, pretty soon, the State and Oregon Democrats will want to tax money you didn’t earn.

Oregon Democrats 2019 Tax Plans

We talk this week to Jonathan Williams, the Vice President for the Center for State Fiscal Reform at the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC.org) to get some insight into what all these taxes the Oregon Democrats have planned will do to the state’s economy.

Some of what we talk about includes Oregon’s cap-and-trade scheme, the fees, and the endless taxes.

Don’t worry. There’s hope. But you’ll have to listen.

This Week: If there’s one thing in life that’s consistent, it’s that government is consistently wrong.

In the late 1700s, you had Thomas Malthus predicting overpopulation, which would exceed the means of agricultural production and lead to starvation. They were wrong. Because Malthus—a preacher and mathematician and not a farmer—didn’t take into account advances in farming technology. Or advances in science and improved understanding of plant biology. And yet Malthus’s opinion has dominated Western government thinking for two centuries.

And yet the Left wholeheartedly believes it. The Left believes in depopulation, and to solve it some 6 billion humans just need to go away.

And there’s the Industrial Revolution. Once again, government “experts” believed people were going to be put out of work as machines did what people used to do. More people went to work than ever before. And at higher wages than ever before. Which meant they had more money to spend, which meant more businesses could open. And on and on and on.

These are just two examples of why government is so often wrong about so many things. It’s why they’re slow to react to advances in technology because—like Malthus who was no farmer—government bureaucrats are making decisions and recommendations about things they don’t fully understand. It’s why the market, which makes millions of buying and selling decisions every day is more efficient than any government bureaucrat could ever be.

This is precisely why socialism always fails. Markets are always better than bureaucrats.

Government and the Market

But that doesn’t mean there shouldn’t be some sort of control. Because a market running amok can cause damage within any market, there are potentially some bad actors who will, can, and do exploit things to their own advantage.

But what about The Fed? They’ve been raising interest rates since Trump got elected. Is this politics? Are they trying to sabotage Trump? You’ll have to tune in to hear what’s really going on.

Artificial Intelligence: New Tool in Covert Financial Warfare?

Take, for example, a relatively new phenomenon, computerized, algorithm-controlled stock trades. Basically, computer programs that watch the market to buy or sell based on a set of criteria. But here’s the thing. They can make millions of trades in seconds, before you can even refresh the Dow Jones web page.

And they don’t care whether the market goes up or down. Because if their predictive program guesses correctly, they can make money whether the market goes up or down.

Think George Soros—who made billions by betting against the Bank of England and that the British Pound would go down. Now think George Soros with a super computer. See the potential problem?

While these “trader bots” have a lot of potential, they also represent the potential for tremendous problems. And the potential for problems are only going to get worse due to the rise of new technologies that will make things even faster and more connected than ever before.

5G Dangers? Not Quite what you think…

The potential for good or ill includes 5G technology that will have your head spinning. Your cell phone used to have 3G technology, which essentially used to have dialup speeds. But then they went to 4G, which meant your cell phone could handle video downloads. 5G? It’s 100 times faster than 4G.

And it will be everywhere. Toasters connected to cell phones? Yes. It’s being called the Internet of Things.

China’s War for 5G

So why is China so interested in this new technology? Why are they pushing to dominate the world with their version of 5G? And what dan

Because who controls that new technology will control the new future that is coming. And right now there is a war between China and the U.S. for the future.

Tune in to hear the dangers, and potential, for what is happening in the market and where this is headed.

Original Air Dates: Nov. 17 & 18, 2018 |  Jayne Carroll & Sam Carpenter

This Week:  There’s the famous 1969 TV commercial, where a boy asks Mr. Owl, “How many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop?” You know the answer. One… two… three.

How many losses, how many lickings, will it take before the Oregon Republican Party makes the changes needed to finally win in Oregon?

It’s been 30 years (thirty!) since the last time Republicans won. 2018 was no different. Oregon Republicans lost the governor’s race again. But Knute Buehler’s race hurt down-ballot races as well. Oregon Republicans lost so badly to the Democrats that the Democrats have a super-majority in both the Oregon house and senate.

How many more losses will it take before something changes? That’s what we’d like to know.

Oregon Republicans: Aftermath of 2018 Midterms

On last week’s I Spy Radio Show, we talked about some bright spots in the 2018 midterms. Namely, some 2nd Amendment ballot initiatives that passed in eight counties. Eight. But we also talked about how Knute Buehler, the Republican candidate for governor, kept shooting himself in the foot by turning his back on his Republican base.

But we didn’t talk about the party itself.  That’s this week.

Fixing the Oregon Republican Party

Oregon Republicans - after huge 2018 losses, can they finally turn their luck around?
Oregon Republicans. The Charlie Brown of Republican politics?

Maybe “fixing the Oregon Republicans” is the wrong way to put it (given the 2018 results, they’re already pretty neutered). But something has to be done.

What has happened to Oregon’s Republican party that led to the smacking we saw it take this last election?  Does nothing need to change? If nothing needs changed, then why do R’s keep losing? If something needs to change, then what needs fixed to turn Republicans into winners?

Without asking those question we can’t move forward. Clearly, something needs to change because it’s blatantly obvious that how the party has always handled its business is just not working anymore. It’s not just a matter of “get better candidates.”

Make Oregon Republicans Successful Again

So we call upon two people who have different insights from two different perspectives.  One who has observed and reported on politics but has also managed campaigns and ballot initiatives.  And the other who has been a candidate and saw the dysfunction up close and personal—not only as a candidate but as a businessman who was a highly successful business  consultant, specializing in turning around failing businesses.

Jayne Carroll: A Political Observer’s View

Jayne Carroll kicks off the show. We talk about Knute, his strategy to woo Democrats, what we can expect from two years of Democrat stranglehold, and the unfair and confusing ballot measures that have led to some people still thinking that “at least the grocery tax was defeated.” (No. It wasn’t.) Tune in to where the 2018 ballot measures are leading us and her thoughts on how the Oregon Republicans can start making inroads into the heart of the Blue Swamp, Portland and Eugene.

Sam Carpenter: Candidate & Businessman’s Solutions

Then we turn to gubernatorial candidate Sam Carpenter, who discusses what happened during the primary. You may be surprised (shocked) at the supports the Oregon Republicans offer to candidates. Or doesn’t.

We also ask him if he was a business turnaround consultant coming in to the ORP to fix its problems what would he do. It turns out, not only does he give specific examples of what needs to be fixed, Sam has decided to put action to his words and has announced he’ll be running for the Chair of the ORP.  Leadership means everything and Sam wants to apply his skills of correcting an organization that continues its downward spiral that he wants to stop.

Are You Satisfied with the Oregon Republicans?

Are you satisfied with the Oregon Republican Party? Do we keep doing what we’ve been doing? Or is it time for something to change? Tune in to hear our guests to hear their suggested fixes — and then let us know what you think needs to happen to Make Oregon Red Again.

Air Dates: November 10 & 11, 2018 | Rob Taylor & Scott McEwen

Okay, so things didn’t go quite as well as we would have liked to see in Oregon politics. Knute, kept shooting himself in the foot as the Republican candidate, who seemed to not like Republicans. His opponent was not a well–liked Democrat candidate—and had Knute not attacked Republicans and their policies he may have a had a chance. But we’ll get into that next week. For this show we’re going to focus on the positive of what did happen Tuesday.

Hidden Victories in Oregon’s Midterm Elections

There was a little-discussed win in Oregon’s midterm elections, victories which happened in eight Oregon counties. Eight. Wins that were led by Rob Taylor, who saw eight counties pass ordinances to protect our 2nd Amendment rights as these counties voted to become “Gun Rights Sanctuary Counties.” Rob will explain how they used, of all things, the Constitution and the 10th Amendment. (What a novel idea.) Don’t miss out on hearing about some good news and where these activists will be going next to keep fighting for our 2nd Amendment rights.

Scott McEwen on the Midterms

Then we welcome back to our show Scott McEwen, who co-authored the huge hit, American Sniper. Of course, there’s never a show with Scott that we don’t talk about what’s going on in the world of politics. So naturally, we get his thoughts on the national midterms, Oregon’s midterm elections, and on the firing of Jeff Sessions.

Scott is also back to talk about his amazing new book City of Death: Humanitarian Warriors in the Battle of Mosul that he co-authored with Ephraim Mattos. Little has been discussed about the efforts our soldiers have made to fight back ISIS. Author and US Navy Seal, Ephraim Mattos not only fought against ISIS alongside his fellow soldiers, but after he left the SEALs he flew back to Iraq to join a small group of volunteer humanitarians known as the Free Burma Rangers. With Veterans Day upon us this is a great book to read that will give you a look inside the work of these humanitarians and the courage and sacrifice they’ve witnessed and endured.

The Kavanaugh Hearings | Lies, Damned Lies, and John Brennan

Show Summary: This week, we look at the Kavanaugh hearings from someone who went through something similar. Former CIA officer, John Kiriakou faced accusations from John Brennan, was lied about on a national stage, and his entire life and career hung in the balance because they made claims against him that were impossible to prove or disprove. Did we see the Deep State at work in the Kavanaugh confirmation?

Air Dates: October 6 & 7, 2018 | John Kiriakou

Former CIA officer, John Kiriakou, talked about an unclassified CIA program: water-boarding terrorists. But the CIA didn’t like it and tried to put him in jail. But he was cleared of all charges. Only to have the case re-opened by John Brennan after Obama got elected. As a result, Kiriakou was forced to go to jail when John Brennan bankrupted him into taking a plea deal. Along the way, he was lied about, the CIA and FBI made outrageous claims that couldn’t be proved or disproved. And it all played out on a national stage.

Instead of being called a “rapist,” John Kiriakou was called a “traitor.” He and his family received death threats. This highly decorated CIA officer’s entire life was upended because of a lie.

Needless to say, he knows what Brett Kavanaugh is going through.

Also, we tap into his training as a CIA officer and how to tell who was lying. The answer may surprise you.

Show Summary: In a followup from last week’s show, we talk with Portland Radio Superstar, Jayne Carroll, about the difficulty facing Oregon Republicans this year. Can Republicans trust Knute Buehler? Should they? Should they vote for him? Plus, more on government corruption and leftist billionaires and their secret operatives implanted in Oregon’s Attorney General office. The Kavanaugh hearings. And O’Keefe’s latest uncovering the Deep State’s sabotage of the Trump administration.

Original Air Dates: September 22 & 23, 2018 | Guest: Jayne Carroll

Last week, we asked whether Oregon Republicans can trust their own candidate, Knute Buehler. Why? Because during the primary, while running against two conservatives, Knute said he opposed a carbon tax. He even called such a scheme Kate Brown’s “honey pot.”

Can Republicans trust Knute Buehler? Plus, Leftist billionaires' secret army planted in states' attorneys general offices
Can Oregon Republicans trust Knute Buehler? Should they?

And then, within weeks of winning the Republican primary, Knute flipped. And now he says he wants a carbon tax.

So which version of Knute do you trust? Primary Knute? Or general election Knute? (Funny how he hasn’t changed his stance on abortion though.)

Our guest last week, Chuck Wiese, a meteorologist and fierce global warming debunker, knows that global warming—now “climate change” (because people are stupid, apparently)— is a scam. Chuck looks at the devastation a carbon tax did to both California and its once proud Republican Party. California’s carbon tax, passed by Arnold Schwarzenegger, a “republican” governor, with the aid of California Republicans, destroyed both the state and the Republicans. As a result, some 10,000 businesses have been forced out of California by the carbon tax.

And now Knute Buehler says he wants a carbon tax. Is Knute trying to destroy Oregon? Or the Oregon Republican Party? Or both?

The Don’t Vote Knute Buehler Strategy

Chuck believes that if Kate Brown gets elected, she won’t be able to pass a carbon tax. Why? Because Republicans in the house and senate will oppose her simply because she’s a Democrat trying to pass (in Knute’s words) a honey pot for Democrats and their Democrat allies.

But if “republican” Knute Buehler gets elected, it’s a different story. Knute will get a carbon tax passed, where Kate Brown will fail if she gets elected. Why? Because in the Knute scenario, Republicans will actually want (or feel obligated to) to support their newly elected “republican” governor.

Imagine that. Republicans passing an anti-business carbon tax. A tax that could punish businesses to the tune of some $17 billion. A tax that will raise prices on every thing. And worse, a tax that will send tens if not hundreds of millions of dollars to… wait for it…Democrats.

If Oregon Republicans pass a carbon tax, it will be like writing checks to the political opponents.

Perhaps this kindergarten-level of “strategic thinking” is why the Oregon Republican Party are in the hole to the tune of –$13,000. Meanwhile, the Oregon Democrat Party is  sitting on a cool half-million in cash in the bank.

So you can see why Chuck Wiese believes it would be better for Oregon Republicans not to elect their own candidate. And it does make a lot of sense—as horrible as it sounds. Sometimes, strategy is very messy. So what are Republicans to do?

That’s why we call in talk show host and long-time political strategist, Jayne Carroll.

This Week’s Show: Jayne Carroll

In the Portland area, Jayne Carroll is a radio superstar. The First Lady of Radio. Last week’s show (The Impossible Choice Facing Oregon Republican Voters This Year) featured Chris Horner, who revealed that Leftist billionaires are secretly embedding global-warming operatives right into states’ attorney general offices. We also talked with Chuck Wiese about his strategy and reasons not to vote for Knute Buehler. Knever Knute. Because Jayne has over 30 years experience in Oregon politics, we want to get her take on things.

While you’ll have to listen, here’s a hint. She’s not thrilled with Knute Buehler. But should Republicans sit this one out? What about the other issues? Will Knute do to the Oregon Republican Party what Schwarzenegger did to California Republicans?

Or what about this: is Knute a Deep State or at least a Democrat plant?

You’ll have to tune in to find out.

We also get her take on the Kavanaugh hearings, the accusations of Christine Ford and the games Democrats play. the latest from Project Veritas exposing the Deep State, and lots more.

Don’t miss this terrific show with one of the best talk show hosts in Portland.

The One Exception to “Always Vote Republican”…?

Like most conservative Republicans, we have always believed you’ll get more of what you want by voting for any Republican iver any Democrat. But on this week’s show, tune in to hear why voting for Knute Buehler, running for Oregon’s governor, could be the exception to the rule.

This will be a challenging show for listeners because conservative Republicans face an impossible question this election. Is it still better to vote for a Republican candidate if that candidate could do real long-term damage to the Republican party and to Oregon?

In other words, does the maxim, “Always vote for the Republican” still hold if the Republican candidate is actually worse than the Democrat?

Exposed: Billionaires’ Secret Operatives in States AG Offices

As if an potentially untrustworthy Republican candidate for Oregon governor wasn’t bad enough… Add to that worry, the startling revelation that Leftist billionaires are secretly placing operatives in attorneys general offices all across America. Including right here in Oregon.

It’s one bad choice on top of another.

Knute Buehler – Never Knute?

We’re sure the “Never Trumpers” will try to claim this is exactly the same situation they were in a few years back. (Knever Knute?) But it’s not, of course.

The “Never Trump” movement (which Knute was a proud member of, we might add) was a case of so-called “conservatives” opposing Trump for irrational reasons. The Never Trumpers opposed Trump despite Trump running on Conservative values. And conservative tax policies. And a strong Second Amendment defense. Oh, and pro life. Not to mention he opposed global warming. Was for border control and legal immigration. Plus, he pushed for conservative judges.  He was — or should have been—a conservatives dream.

But they just opposed him because he was Trump.

The election in Oregon, however, is a case of a “Republican” candidate pushing Democrat ideals: a carbon tax. (Not to mention being very pro-abortion. And a host of other progressive social issues.) Trump never pushed Democrat policies. That’s why this is different.

The Problem: Knute Buehler’s Carbon Tax

A carbon tax opens the door in Oregon to a potential tax to raise up to $17 billion dollars.  Knute has said he’s for a carbon tax. After claiming (conveniently) during the primary that he was against it. (See Knute Buehler’s op-ed in The Oregonian, Oct. 22, 2017.)

The Danger: Knute Buehler’s Convenient Flip on a Carbon Tax

Just weeks after he won the Republican primary for Oregon’s governor, Knute Buehler suddenly announced that he thinks a carbon tax would be a good idea. What?

A carbon tax will be a killer to businesses, do nothing to affect “climate change,” and spend billions of dollars that will end up in the hands of the Democrats. How does any “Republican” not know this?

To see what will happen to the state and to the Republican party, look no further than what happened in California after “Republican” Governor Schwarzenegger passed their carbon tax. Tens of thousands of businesses left the state. California is now nearly $100 billion in debt. And the once proud Californian Republican party is in shambles and can’t stop anything the Democrats.

Chuck Wiese: Why Republicans Can’t Trust Knute Buehler

Our first guest is Chuck Wiese, a meteorologist and global warming debunker.  Chuck discusses why, despite being a life-long Republican, he is considering actively opposing Knute.

But there’s a real strategy at play here that will challenge your thinking.

Chuck exposes that, when you really start pushing “scientists” who claim to believe in global warming and challenge their facts, they have to admit that even if we do everything they say we have to do, it won’t really affect anything.

So why is Knute supporting a carbon tax? Why has he flipped on this? Is it just a ploy? But if so, how do you know which Knute to believe? Do you take a risk and hope for the best?

Tune in to hear the reasons why not voting Republican may actually be the better long-term choice—if Knute can’t be forced to come around.

Leftist Billionaires Secretly Placing Staff in State AG Offices

To start our conversation, we welcome first time guest, Chris Horner, a Senior Fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) that was sued by a State’s Attorney General a few years ago simply because CEI didn’t support the idea of global warming.

Since then, Chris has completed two extensive research reports that has uncovered “special assistant attorneys” being secretly placed in states’ Attorneys General and Governor’s offices without any oversight from legislators or voters.  All of this “off book” and hidden from the public and designed to enforce the will of Leftist billionaires.

Like Michael Bloomberg. Who is pushing global warming by creating this shadow government in states across the nation — and it’s happening right here in Oregon.

Listen to our guest Chris Horner and the evidence they have gathered through court filings and discovery, including e-mails that reveal how these billionaires are actively trying to undermine the voters and how the AGs are trying to hide all of this from the public.

Knute Buehler’s convenient carbon tax lie:

  • During the Republican primary, Knute said he was against the carbon tax. (Knute’s op-ed inThe Oregonian, Oct, 22, 2017)
    • Note: Knute’s campaign staff is now trying to claim he didn’t mean he was against a carbon tax, he was just against Kate Brown being the one to do it
  • The flip: after he won the primary, Knute suddenly reversed his stance on a carbon tax: ““While skeptical of major new spending, Buehler says he is open to increased taxes on electronic and regular cigarettes to pay for budget items like health care, and also to a carbon tax, although not to the Democrats’ cap and trade proposal.” What? Why didn’t he mention he wanted a carbon tax during the primary? (“State Rep. Knute Buehler to challenge Gov. Kate Brown,” Register-Guard, May 16th, 2018)

For him, the biggest problem in Oregon government is the inefficient muck created by one party in power for so long.”

This Week:  After a couple weeks off to take care of some much-needed (and noisy) remodeling, we’re back.  And we are starting with a show that will make you sit back and think why aren’t we hearing this in the MSM?

This week’s news of Manafort and Cohen is fading fast from the headlines but what was also dropped from the headlines faster than a hot potato. Muslim extremists are (or were) back in the news. But only getting a brief mention before quickly being overshadowed by a MSM all too willing to bury the story.

As shocking as the story of an active Islamic terror training camp was, operating right here on U.S. soil in New Mexico, the reality is perhaps even more frightening.

What CNN is Trying to Hide about Islamic Terror in the US

What should have been a week-long story in the media faded within 24 hours. Law enforcement uncovered a school for children where terrorists were training them to kill other children in their classrooms. Add to that the almost unbelievable ruling by the judge to set the accused free with practically no bail.  But as shocking as these open threats of violence and terror are, in many ways what you’ll hear this week on I Spy Radio is even more frightening.

We call in Kamal Saleem. He is a former Jihadist who was trained to kill but was commissioned to come to America to destroy it from within by attacking its core beliefs and culture.  Kamal knows exactly what was happening at this training camp and what it all means because he went through it at a young age. He grew up in the Middle East, a younger son of a Muslim family, whose “best hope” for meaning in life was to kill the enemies of Islam because becoming a martyr would guarantee his entire family’s unconditional right to enter Heaven.

So what’s the difference between CNN and I Spy Radio? When CNN has a “Middle East expert” or “Muslim expert” on to discuss Islam, it’s to have them on as apologists—to make excuses for Muslims sowing the seeds of terror. I Spy Radio has a genuine Middle Eastern Muslim—who turned from his Islamic faith on to warn others about it.

 Don’t miss this extremely fascinating show that takes us into the mindset of terrorists as he discusses their real intentions on Christians and Jews. He also gives us some insights into what happened in the 1920s that resulted in a strategic and tactical change for Muslims in their struggle with the West. Can Islam and Christianity have peace? Can the Children of Ishmael be redeemed?

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.
