Show Summary: Our country was founded on Judeo-Christian values. So why is it that we seem to be constantly defending them— even at Christmastime? We talk with Jeremy Morris, “The Christmas Lawyer,” who just won what’s been called the War on Christmas lawsuit. Plus: could the Deep State’s Christmas present be to see Jerome Corsi spend Christmas in jail…?

Original Air Dates: December 22 & 23, 2018 | Jeremy Morris & Dr. Jerome Corsi

Usually for our Christmas show we take a break from hard news and focus celebrating Christmas and the birth of Jesus.  But this year we had some realities of Christmas come to us that demonstrated the holiday isn’t always brought to us with happy times. There’s illness, fights, and actual wars that can keep families in trying times.  So, for this show we’re going to look at a couple of very difficult stories for the Christmas season that truly demonstrate how faith and courage run deep in the Christian way of life.

Christian persecution comes masked in many ways in the US and in these two stories we take a look at how two courageous men and their families are pushing back.

Fighting for Christmas: The Christmas Lawyer

First up, he’s been called “The Christmas Lawyer.” After Jeremy Morris, who lives in Idaho, moved to a new neighborhood, the Home Owner’s Association tried to stop him from holding his annual charity Christmas display.

Think Clark W. Griswold from Christmas Vacation. Tons of lights. Live Nativity scene. Even a real camel. People would come from all over to see this and all the donations went to help cure childrens’ cancer.

But it wasn’t enough the HOA didn’t want it. Especially since they couldn’t stop it because there was nothing in their own rules to prevent it. (You can just imagine how angry that made them.) No. These Grinches harassed his visitors, threatened Jeremy’s family, even staged fake accidents. So after the HOA hired an attorney to try to stop it, and after the harassment got to a boiling point, Jeremy decided to sue his homeowner’s association.

If he didn’t take a stand, where would it end? Keep in mind, this is right on the heels of Christian bakers in Oregon being shut down by administrative rule.

We talk to Jeremy Morris to find a very different result for him and his family.  Listen to hear the precedent his winning brings in an unfriendly judicial system that could start to turn the tide on judicial Christian persecution.

Jerome Corsi—In Jail for Christmas…?

Then we talk with author and investigative reporter, Dr. Corsi. His newest book is Silent No More: How I Became a Political Prisoner of Mueller’s “Witch Hunt. Although the hard copy won’t be released until March 2019, the e-book version is available right now.

We talk with Dr. Corsi to discuss the circumstances of a horrendous Mueller attack that seems bent on destroying his life.  The Deep State learned well the lessons from the Obama administration on how to weaponize an agency. And Dr. Corsi, along many other patriots, is seeing it up close and personal.

What Corsi is facing is eerily similar to what happened to our previous guest, CIA whistleblower, John Kiriakou. Use the bottomless checkbook of the federal government and bankrupt your targeted victim. Kiriakou was forced into accepting jail or go bankrupt, lose his home and family. He took jail, and had to plead guilty, despite not actually being guilty.

They’re doing the same to Dr. Corsi. Using what’s called “the perjury trap,” the FBI is trying to force Corsi to plead guilty for not remembering an email he sent two years ago or they will destroy him financially and bankrupt him until he has nothing left to fight with.

Fighting the Deep State

But in a courageous move, Dr. Corsi is fighting back. He filed two criminal complaints against Mueller and his henchmen, because he believes he’s being persecuted solely due to his support of President Trump.  He’s facing down a Deep State that has the money and time of the federal government to use to bankrupt him over a simple memory mistake.

How big of a fight is this? If this goes to trial, he’s facing a $2 million lawsuit. To fight his own government.

You can help Dr. Corsi fight this incredibly important battle. Head to Corsi’s Go Fund Me page to donate to his legal expenses.

Both stories are airing during our Christmas season that reminds us how important our values of a Christian based, small government system designed by our founding fathers is to protect us. But the war for freedom never ends as these two men demonstrate to us.  We must always stay vigilant and not allow anyone to take away our Christian beliefs or freedoms.

We know this isn’t your (or our) typical Christmas show but from all of us here at I Spy Radio to all of you — wishing you a very Merry Christmas!

This Week:  This year has seen some lows and some highs. Mostly, the lows are here in Oregon. Or at least it feels that way some times. We’re the kids in the Christmas Carol looking out the window at other kids having fun in the snow. But we can’t go out and play with the other kids. And of course, there’s that carbon tax that might be coming—which will really handicap Oregon’s businesses and farmers—if Oregon’s Republicans can’t get their act together.

But let’s not be Scrooge here. There have been a lot of good things that happened this year. And it’s with that in mind that we bring you this week’s show.

Christmas Time

It being the Christmas Season, we’re taking a lighter approach to this week’s show. Sure, there’ll be some politics but we won’t be focusing on things we need to warn you about. (See pretty much the entire rest of the year for that.)

Instead, we want to bring you two authors and frequent guests of I Spy Radio, who have terrific new books out that would be perfect Christmas gifts this year. (Plus, you can find other great books for gifts in our store page.)

Burgess Owens: Why I Stand

First up, we talk with Burgess Owens, former NFL superstar, about his latest book, Why I Stand. This is a terrific book just in time for the holidays about a man who came up from the Deep South and is committed to standing up for the Black community that has been duped by its leader. It is filled with inspiration about the core beliefs that make America great, filled with insights from a lifetime of seeing too many people fall into the trap of socialist mindsets. This is a great gift to give yourself or the younger generation in your life to wake up from the growing lure of socialism.

Scott McEwen

We also talk with Scott McEwen, co-author of the NY Times bestselling American Sniper., about some of the feel-good stories this year, like Trump’s victory to get Kavanaugh appointed, expanding the Republicans’ lead in the Senate (which will make more Kavanaughs possible), and even the Clinton’s discounted “stadium tour.” Could 2019 be the year of the Clintons finally facing justice?

Scott has two new books out (in addition to his other seven books): City of Death: Humanitarian Warriors in the Battle for Mosul, which Scott co-wrote with Ephraim Mattos, and Camp ValorCity of Death, which would be an excellent book for anyone who likes real-life military stories as you’re put right there on the scene with one of the Free Burma Rangers as they helped provide humanitarian relief for the fight to retake Mosul from ISIS. It would also be an excellent book for any vets in your life — or buy a few copies to take to your local VFW.

Camp Valor is intended for teens and young adults but, let’s face it, it’s great fun for adults too. It’s about a troubled youth who’s given a chance to redeem himself if he agrees to join a secret training camp for teenage government agents. Except America’s enemies find out about it and they find themselves in a real battle for their lives.

Tune in this week for a bit of a lighter show than our usual fare. We’ll need the break as we all rest, then gear up for 2019.

Trump’s Jerusalem — The Key to Peace in the Middle East?

Trump’s Jerusalem — The Key to Peace in the Middle East?

Show Summary: The mainstream media was too busy spewing anti-Trump propaganda to notice how “Trump’s Jerusalem” may have profoundly positive and long-term results. We talk with a former jihadist to learn how Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, combined with some unreported events in the Middle East, may open the door in real peace in Israel. Perhaps even the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple.

Air Dates: December 9 & 10, 2017 | Kamal Saleem

A former jihadist reveals why “Trump’s Jerusalem” combined with some unreported developments in the Middle East will open the door in real peace in Israel.

This week, President Trump decided to put a foot down on death-by-committee and officially recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. After years of promises from past presidents, President Trump directed the State Department to begin the process of moving the United States embassy to Jerusalem. The result from countries such as Turkey was outrage. Fires of anger started raging as Muslims responded to a long time promise of the mid 1990’s.

Not surprisingly, the anti-Trump media also tried to ignite their own firestorm. Except they are completely missing why this is such a historic moment and the key pieces of the puzzle that are suddenly now in play. Even the Trump-friendly media like Fox News and Breitbart are missing these key puzzle pieces. But don’t worry; we have the answers.

Trump’s Jerusalem: A New Era of Peace in Israel?

We pull in our expert on Middle East issues: former Jihadist, Kamal Saleem, who was born in Beirut, Lebanon, to give us insights into the reasons why Muslims are exploding over President Trump’s decision—but also why there is real reason to believe peace may come to Israel as a result of these puzzle pieces that the media is completely missing.  Because Kamal is fluent in Arabic and Hebrew, he is able to give us information you won’t hear in the main stream media. So, tune to find out why this decision to move the embassy is one of the most historic decisions of modern time.

Don’t miss what the rest of the media is missing!

There’s a sense of relief for many with President-Elect Trump’s fresh and energized entrance into Washington politics with the emphasis of working for the forgotten.  And boy has he lived up to his word.  Cabinet picks that focus on people who know how to take apart systems and rebuild them focused on value and efficiency. People that have been fighting against regulations that have been holding back the American people.

Unlike the Obama administration, Trump’s focus is to build up America’s wealth and unleash our natural resources.  It’s exciting to think of what the difference will be for our country in just a few years.

To find out more about one of the most important cabinet picks, the Director of the EPA, Scott Pruitt, we talk with Ron Arnold.  Mr. Arnold has spent years tracking the money sources going into the far-left environmental groups and how they have impacted American’s way of life.  We talk with him about what a Pruitt EPA will look like, the types of changes to look for within the EPA, and what will happen with the EPA’s relationship to the U.N.  We also discuss the possible appointment of Congresswoman Cathy Rogers for Dept. of Interior.  A woman who has grown up ranching and understands the bullying of the BLM and federal takeover of lands in the western states.

Remember all that taxpayer funding going from the EPA to all those far-Left environmental groups? That’s about to change. Big league. And isn’t that a good thing. Stop funding the people trying to stop development and spend it instead on actual development. Yes indeed, more Trumpmas on the way.

Article: Will Trump purge climate-change policymakers? (Daily Mail, Dec 10, 1016)

Then we turn to John Whitehead, a Constitutional attorney and founder of the Rutherford Institute.  They have recently released “12 rules of Christmas” that gives us the Constitutional do’s (with some don’ts) of how to celebrate Christmas in public venues.  Listen to find out that there are case laws protecting people’s rights in their schools and public parks to celebrate Christmas without the left stopping your fun.

Here’s one of our own “rules” for Christmas:

Cultural Jihad – Radical Islam’s attack on Christianity and America

Cultural Jihad – Radical Islam’s attack on Christianity and America

Summary: Cultural jihad is the Muslim tactic of infiltration and subterfuge; of pretending to be friends while destroying from within. It is a serious and very real threat to America and our American culture. If you’ve ever wondered why hatred is on the rise in America—especially disdain for Christianity and our Judeo-Christian heritage, this is why. On this episode of I Spy Radio, we talk with a former cultural jihadist who explains tactics and methods, destroys the notion of “Islam is a religion of peace”, as well as the difference in his life since converting to Christianity.

Original Air Dates: December 19 & 20, 2015 | Kamal Saleem

On this week’s show we welcome back former jihadist, Kamal Saleem. Kamal had been trained from an early age to wage “cultural jihad,” and after successful operations in Europe, he received a commission from a Saudi Prince to go to America as an operative in the 1980s with the mission of helping to destroy America from within.

Winston Churchhill understood cultural jihad - "The religion of Islam above all others was founded upon the sword…"
“The religion of Islam above all others was founded upon the sword… “

But Kamal left his former religion of radical Islam and found faith and new peace when he turned his life over to Christ. He is now the president of Koome Ministries and has made it his new mission to awaken Americans to the very real danger posed by Islam.

Now as a Christian who understands the radical Islam’s inner workings, mindset, and the trainings of Muslim terrorists, his new mission is to reach out to Muslims to teach them the love of Christ, as well as to warn Christians and Jews about the Islamic enemy that has come to our shore to wage war against us.

In this show you’ll learn:

  • Insights of the San Bernardino shootings
  • Tactics used by Muslim jihadists — whether cultural or military Jihad
  • The other forms of Jihad currently being waged here in the US
  • How radical Islam terrorist cells operate
  • Why there is such a huge divide right now in our country and how it is being orchestrated
  • The Islamic principle of taqiyya (and other means of deception)
  • The differences between Islam and Christianity and what the Christmas Season means to him now

We also ask Kamal for his thoughts on whether Obama is a Christian or a Muslim —and the tell-tale signs of how to know for sure.
