Scott McEwen is perhaps best known for American Sniper, which he co-authored with Chris Kyle. Since then, he has written his own series of books, the Sniper Elite series, and his latest book is Camp Valor (available on Amazon).

This week we talk to Scott, not only about his latest book, but what the media is doing to itself. Which has turned out to be a theme of ours of late, starting with last week’s show with Scott Adams.And we’ll continue that a bit more next week.

For now, we talk with Scott McEwen about some of the motivating factors that drove him to write this book.

What he’s seeing is generation that is in danger of losing its way. The news media. The education system. The gaming industry. It’s all coming together—and not in good ways. Is the next generation in danger of losing the freedoms the previous generations had fought and died for? Or worse—giving it away?

The next generation of patriots will face new threats, use new weapons, some of which haven’t even been invented yet. We need to give them the foundation they need to face these threats but also teach them to carry the torch of freedom forward.

Scott’s new book, Camp Valor, focuses on a troubled youth who fights to overcomes his past and find the strength and  courage to overcome incredible odds. Camp Valor is also a story about finding hope and a seizing a second chance when it’s offered.

We also get some inside information on the Hammonds case — Eastern Oregon farmers who were targeted by the Obama administration—and the Malheur standoff.

Camp Valor

From the Publisher:

When Wyatt gets framed for a friend’s crime, he thinks his life is over. But then a mysterious stranger visits him in jail with an unusual proposal: spend three months in a secret government camp and have a ten-year prison sentence wiped clean.

Wyatt agrees, and finds himself in a world beyond his wildest dreams, with teenagers like him flying drones, defusing bombs, and jumping out of helicopters. This is no ordinary camp. Camp Valor is a secret training ground for teenage government agents, filled with juvenile offenders who desperately need a second chance. If they can prove themselves over their three-month stay and survive Hell Week, they will enter the ranks of the most esteemed soldiers in the United States military.

But enemies of the United States have gotten wind of Camp Valor, and they will do everything in their power to find out its secrets. Suddenly Wyatt and his friends have to put their training into practice, and find the bravery to protect their country.

Original Air Dates: May 19 & 20, 2018 | Rob Taylor, Sgt. (ret) Greg Stube, Scott McEwen

This Week: In an unusual move for I Spy we are having three guests this week to help cover some important issues. One of these is a massive potential impact on our 2nd Amendment rights here in Oregon.  We felt it important enough that we deterred from our usual format to be sure we could help get the word out on Rob Taylor’s work to pass ordinances at the county level to Preserve the Second Amendment.

Oregon’s Latest Gun Confiscation Attempt: IP43

In a nutshell—yes. It is a gun confiscation bill. (Read the full text of Oregon’s IP43 and make up your own mind.)

We talk to Rob about the new bill IP 43, being pushed by our current Kate Brown, as a masked attempt to confiscate guns in Oregon.  Listen to find out what your community can do to not only protect itself but why it’s important to get out and vote to stop this atrocious bill from ever becoming law.  Be sure to visit Rob’s website www.cooscountywatchdog.com for more information on the Second Amendment Protection Ordinance.

What Republicans Could Use: Leadership

Then we turn to Green Beret Sgt. (ret) Greg Stube, who has written a new book Conquer Anything.  This excellent read gives you insights into the lives of those serving in the special forces.  Sgt. Stube writes about his own active duty and the challenges he was faced with and why ethos taught to him in preparation for these challenges now help him every day, civilian life.

You’ll hear what it means to be part of an A-team and why every man pulls for the group, which ends up protecting the individual in the most dire of situations. Riveting to read, you won’t be sorry to dig into this book as you learn how to apply special forces, A-team lessons to your own life.

Deep State: New Revelations

Specializing in military operations, author Scott McEwen, makes a return visit to I Spy to discuss the new information coming out about Obama’s FBI’s attack on a political opponent. New this week: actual evidence of the Deep State and FBI planting actual spies inside the Trump campaign.

And, unbelievably, new secret means to get around pesky things like laws and courts. All in attempt to get dirt on the future President. Why? To derail his election? To use as leverage post-election? To stage a coup?

Since when did entrapment stop being a thing?

We discuss with Scott, a recovering attorney, the dangerous road our law enforcement agencies are traveling down as they attempt to thwart an election through illegal and manipulative actions.We also get his thoughts on the upcoming Inspector General’s report on the FBI conduct. Will it be a nothing burger? Or are a lot of people about to face serious charges?

And don’t miss our discussion on Scott’s new book Camp Valor that’s coming out this summer.  Another block buster book you won’t want to miss.

Harris said, “(Gun regulators) are coming after us at the state level and this is just a rebuttal.”[13] Initiative petition K-18-1, referred to as the Second Amendment Preservation Ordinance, would create an ordinance to:
    • “Preserves the right of the People of, on and in Klamath County with the following stated goals:
    • Keep and bear arms as originally understood; in self-defense and preservation, and in defense of one’s community and country.
    • Freely manufacture, transfer, sell and buy firearms, firearm accessories and ammunition, which are designed primarily for the same purposes.[14][4]
    • The ordinance would make it illegal to “in any way limit the rights granted under the United States and Oregon constitutions” and would include penalties if the ordinance was infringed.
