Who: All Oregonians. If you’re a pro-life Oregon taxpayer, your taxes will now be used to pay for abortions
How: Take action to stop the funding of abortions by signing a petition

The Problem in More Depth: Oregon’s Anti-Life Policies

All babies are pro-lifeSome years ago, Oregon became famous for its first-in-the-nation assisted-suicide bill. With the latest pro-abortion bills signed into law in 2017 by Democrat Governor, Kate Brown (a former lobbyist for Planned Parenthood), Oregon truly has become the Death State.

In Oregon, there are zero restrictions on abortion. None. A woman can abort her child at full term, right up to the day of birth and even in the act of birth. Abortions at any time, for any reason.

As if this was not horrid enough, to add insult to injury, Gov. Kate Brown signed into law a provision that allows Oregon to use taxpayer dollars to offer free abortions. To anyone. Even people here illegally. That’s right. If you’re a pro-life Oregonian, your hard-earned tax dollars will be used to pay for 100% free abortions—not even so much as a co-pay.

What can be done?

There is a petition drive right now to stop Oregon’s taxpayer funding of abortions. Head to Stop the Funding (www.stopthefunding.org) and sign the petition. You can sign an individual petition (for one person) or download a petition sheet for you and your family, and your friends and neighbors. Download another and take it to church.

There is a long, long way to go to protect the unborn in Oregon. This is just the first small step.

Please help. Hundreds of thousands of signatures are needed to block Oregon from using your money to kill the unborn.

News: Mike Huckabee coming to Oregon!

Mike Huckabee is coming to Oregon in January 2018 to help with the effort to block this bill. He will be speaking in Portland, Salem, and Medford. Times and locations to be announced.

For pro-life Oregonians, Oregon’s governor, Kate Brown, has shown her true colors as former lobbyist for Planned Parenthood.  Through her leadership, Oregon passed an unfettered abortion law that allows for babies to be aborted up to the due date—and for any reason.  You don’t like the sex of the baby or if it’s just inconvenient, gone. To top it off, Oregon is making abortions free for women who can’t afford it—100% free, not even a dollar of co-pay.  That means pro-life taxpayers are forced to pay for abortions, including those who are not legal citizens.

But there is good news, even here in Oregon. And it’s from a surprising source: today’s youth.

Nichole Bents, NW Regional Coordinator of Students for Life
Nichole Bents, NW Regional Coordinator of Students for Life

We talk with Nichole Bentz (@RC_NicholeB), the NW Regional Director, and Kristan Hawkins, the president, both from Students for Life of America. This national organization is making terrific strides as they fight for the unborn. Tune in to find out the exciting and hopeful news, including the incredible numbers of today’s youth who are pro-life—and the reasons why they’re pro-life.

This is especially encouraging at a time when we’re witnessing what is happening on the national stage and what’s coming out of Hollywood. For decades, women have been objectified, as clearly played out in the Hollywood sex scandals of abuse.  It has bred a culture of no responsibility and abortion has given them a no-consequences escape from their actions and abuse.

All babies are pro-lifeWe have a long way to go in Oregon but it has to start with small steps. The first is to stop the funding of free abortions using taxpayer dollars. Tune in to hear how you can help protect society’s most vulnerable: our unborn babies.

We start with the Oregon Regional Coordinator, Nichole Bentz (@RC_NicholeB), who describes her work on the college campuses in Oregon and tells us what she hears from students when they find out just how far this new abortion law goes.  She also tells our listeners what supports they offer and what listeners can do to support her in her ongoing work.  And be looking for those volunteer students to help support gathering petitions during the Christmas season.

Are you a pro-life college student and want to get involved? Head here to get started

Then we talk with Kristan Hawkins, Director of the national Students for Life.  She will discuss the Hollywood scandals and how they may impact a more pro woman support.

One of the most difficult and emotional pro-life challenges is when a woman becomes pregnant due to rape. Don’t miss her touching discussion on how Students for Life approaches these situations.

Exciting Pro-Life News!

Right now, volunteers in Oregon are working overtime to try and stop the taxpayer funding of this ugly new abortion law. As Students for Life head home on Christmas break, they’ll be bringing petitions with them to gather signatures to help stop the funding. Also, we’re pleased to announce that StoptheFunding.org is bringing out Mike Huckabee in late January (20th and 21st) to help with the signature gathering effort. So far, we can confirm he’ll be speaking in Portland, Salem, and Medford. Stay tuned for more details on locations and times!

The One Simple Question Republicans Need to Ask about Tax Reform

We talk with Jonathan Williams of ALEC to get to the truth a dose of reality about the good, bad, and ugly about the Republican tax reform plan. And it really comes down to one simple question we all should ask.

As Trump supporters we’ve been anticipating the swamp will try anything to stop President Trump’s attempts to reform Washington and drain the swamp.  And what we’ve witnessed are spineless Republicans who, instead of charging up the hill behind President Trump they are cowering in the trenches or worse, working to undermine his plans.

It’s a simple question: do you want to create wealth for people or for government? But what we’re seeing right now are Republicans who are tentative about creating a simple and straightforward — and bold! — tax reform system that would grow wealth for people. Could it be because they are more attached to their power and are afraid to shrink government?

So, as we sit with our toes tapping we at I Spy decided to take a look at what the House has proposed in the way of tax reform.  We talk about it all: the good and the bad and maybe some ugly, so you, the citizen, can decide on the plan’s merits.  And now that the Senate’s version has been released, you’ll know what to look for in their plan. Because in the back of your mind, you should always be asking, “Whose side are they on? The taxpayer or the government—and their own career in Congress?”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This Week: As is the case in many situations the NFL taking a knee is really only showing us the tip of the iceberg.  Filled with a large population of black players who are being paid millions, we’re witnessing a culture and community that is blowing itself up.  Ratings are drastically falling as Commissioner Goodell is attempting to walk a very thin line between players and fans who are angry over players disrespecting our flag.  Over disrespecting our nation.

Burgess Owens book is a good read to understand the NFL protestsI Spy Radio is pleased to welcome back former NFL star and Super Bowl Champion, Burgess Owens. He is also the author of Liberalism: Or How to Turn Good Men into Whiners, Weenies, and Wimps.

Through Burgess’ understanding of who has hijacked the Black community many decades ago, this week on I Spy Radio we will look into the players and what they’ve been taught that is finally coming out in a very public way.  But it doesn’t just stop at the players.  We walk through a whole culture that has lost its way as those who want to destroy our beliefs and love of country make their move through these young players. And Colin Kaepernick, a troubled person, is the example that demonstrates how and why this is happening.

This Week: Illegal immigration has once again become the focus for the mainstream media.  And, as usual, rather than reporting on what’s actually happening, they are instead attempting to make President Trump look as if he’s turned his back on campaign promises.  But the real shock of it all is the President Trump wants Congress to do their job, such as come up with an answer for the DACA kids. It is shocking that President Trump has to reach out to Democrats to try to kick the Republicans into gear.

Paul Ryan in tough questions like funding the border wall
Click to enlarge

Given that Paul Ryan and the Republicans are blocking what they all said was a Republican agenda of border security, immigration reform, building the wall, tax reform, repeal and replace —it’s not the Republican agenda that needs fixed, it’s these Republicans. It’s becoming more clear by the day that there are many Congressional members who have forgotten why they were voted in.

More Immigration Shenanigans

First up is Brendan Kirby,  Senior Political Reporter for Laura Ingraham’s online magazine, Lifezette (lifezette.com).  If Lifezette isn’t part of your daily news cycle it needs to be. Otherwise you’re missing out on all their great reporting that many in the media won’t do.  Brendan has three articles this week all focused on immigration.

Tune in to hear how Congress’s sleight of hand will use a spending bill to sneak through an  immigration increase rider.  Brendan also discusses how the illegal crossings have risen each of the past four months and why that’s happening.  Then his third article is the most shocking: 55 colleges in the US who have lost their accreditation are still allowed to issue student visas.Paul Nehlen defeating Paul Ryan

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.

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.

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.

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.

Air Dates: May 20 & 21, 2017 | Rep. Knute Beuhler & Jonathan Williams

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.
