Why the Fight over Benghazi isn’t Over

Why the Fight over Benghazi isn’t Over

Show Summary: In the aftermath of Benghazi, there were a lot of lies and deception. It was more than Obama lying about a video. It was lies about covering their tracks. Tune in to hear one company that was ordered to stay silent. But not any more.

This Week: September 11, 2012 Benghazi was attacked and four Americans died.  Who’s been held responsible for those deaths?  To date, no one.  But with new information coming forward maybe there will come a day when investigations finally point to those who were responsible for not having top notch security in place to protect Americans.  This week we take a look at what happened on the ground at the time of the attack, the cover-up, and why justice has never been served. For all the finger pointing, could Republicans be why we’ve never managed to get the truth about Benghazi?

Benghazi’s Inexperienced and Unarmed “Security”

First up, our guest Brad Owen of Torres Security, which has been making the news lately because they’ve been able to come forward about being silenced by the Obama State Dept. in the aftermath of the Benghazi attack. They had originally bid on the contract to protect Ambassador Stevens but lost to an inexperienced UK firm. Why? And then, two weeks before the attack, the State Dept. wanted to get out of the contract and hire Torres, except by then it was too late. What did they know?

Brad talks about what happened in the bidding process and how a company, Blue Mountain Security from the UK, with no experience in high-level security work (other than guarding celebrities) but still won the bid anyway. Why? He walks us through the maze of government contracting with little or no concern for the actual danger that these security companies must be prepared to handle.  After the attack happened listen to find out what he and his men were told not to do.

Did Republicans Shut Down Benghazi Investigations?

Then we talk with Scott McEwen, who has worked with those military personnel that have gone into dangerous areas to protect American interests.  We discuss what didn’t happen that day with the inexperienced security company that was not capable of protecting our people.  And don’t miss the discussion about Republican Rep. Mike Rogers who was part of a powerful Republican cabal (including Rep. Darrell Issa) of committee chairmen that worked overtime on blocking Congressional investigation. Again, why?

And we don’t forget about those wiretaps on Pres. Trump that Clapper and CNN laughed off at the time and promised had never happened. Except now we know the Obama administration did wiretap Trump. We talk about what has happened, our government’s lack of transparency, and what the new normal may be if we don’t push back.

Click-Bait Media isn’t New

Click-Bait Media isn’t New

Show Summary: The mainstream media finally got their first win — an open assault on a Republican Congressman. We are in dangerous, dangerous territory and the media is still willing to sell its soul and America to sell a few ads. Turns out today’s click-bait media isn’t so new. But it’s still dangerous. This week: focusing on the media lies, fictions, Comey, and the huge story they’re not covering.

Original Air Dates: June 17 & 18, 2017 | Kathryn Blackhurst & Scott McEwen

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.

Inside James Comey's head cartoon
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.

Congress Fails Again | Obamacare Repeal and Security Oversight

Congress Fails Again | Obamacare Repeal and Security Oversight

Show Summary: You’d think with its recent record, the notion of “Congress fails again” should be no surprise. And yet they failed on their biggest campaign promise from the last seven years: Repeal Obamacare and replace it. They are also failing on oversight of the intelligence community, since it turns out Trump was right: the Obama administration was spying on him. Fortunately, we had no faith in Congress to do what it said so for this week, we look at the merits of the Obamacare replacement plans, not whether it would pass. We also take a look at the attack in London and the espionage of President Trump.

When it comes to healthcare and Obamacare, a lot of people mix the two together. You’ll hear pundits talk about “fixing Obamacare” when what they really mean is we need to fix the healthcare industry. Obamacare is how we pay for healthcare. Mostly. Because it also impacts how healthcare is administered, which impacts the amount and quality of the medical care a patient receives.

This week, we are talking about healthcare financing—in other words, Obamacare—and how it impacts insurance. We talk with Lisa Lettenmaier who discusses how we pay for healthcare, the impact it has on the healthcare industry, and how it could potentially be repaired.

We start off by discussing how the new Ryan legislation attempts to repeal Obamacare, to  get us out from under the mandates and expenses Obamacare created.  Heavy-handed government interference has changed the way we receive and pay for our healthcare but how hard is it to untie all of the tangles Obamacare has added to our healthcare industry?  We discuss the good and the bad of what is being proposed and what we should expect in the near future. Lisa walks us through a lot of the different pieces of this confusing challenge to repeal Obamacare.

In our second half, we talk with bestselling author, Scott McEwen (American Sniper), about the recent London terrorist attack and security concerns arising out of the insane PC culture that is Britain.

We also talk about Sen. Nunes’s revelations of the Trump surveillance that sounds like government agencies did in fact electronically trap private conversations among the Trump team.

If true, US government agencies used the weight and power of the government to listen in on, and spy on, a political opponent of the then-President. And don’t miss Scott’s shocking insights into why Nunes may have publically come forward with the initial information.

Move over Nixon. Obama just made you look like a regular putz.

Also, Scott’s latest book is American Commander, which follows the life and career of Ryan Zinke, a former Navy SEAL who became a SEAL trainer. Zinke explains his never-surrender, always-win attitude as he trains the next generation of SEALs.

Foreigners and foreign policy – Illegals and illegal activity

Foreigners and foreign policy – Illegals and illegal activity

Her answer is open borders and continue the decline. The world is officially turned upside down. This week, it’s all about foreigners and foreign interests as we explore the impact of illegal immigrants on our elections with William Gheen of ALIPAC and the impact of the Obama administration on our once proud standing in the world with bestselling author, Scott McEwen.

It is a wild, wild election cycle. It turns out the mainstream media is better protection for Hillary Clinton than the US Secret Service. The mainstream media is better protection for Hillary than the US Secret Service. But they haven’t been able to stop every bullet.

And while the mainstream media is throwing itself in front of every bullet headed toward Hillary, she is vulnerable on two fronts: her support for illegal immigrants and on foreign policy. Think about it. Hillary’s corrupt State Department is directly responsible for the current decline in the world. Her answer is open borders and a warlike stance against Russia in the Middle East and bowing to Chinese influence in the South Pacific? The world is officially upside down.

Speaking of upside down, check out the video of Michael Moore endorsing Donald Trump. (warning! A lot of bad language but the substance is worth it)

Hillary Clinton liar liar pantsuit on fireWe start off with William Gheen of ALIPAC (alipac.us) and the evidence of illegal immigrants voting—illegally!— in US elections. ALIPAC is leading a wave of protests across the U.S. (see links below for list and to add yours) against Hillary. They are even trying to take out a couple of sitting Congressmen.

Then we talk with bestselling author, Scott McEwen about the decline of the U.S. in world standing, thanks to the Hillary Clinton corrupt State Department. We’re losing allies and making enemies. And wikileaks is exposing the corruption. Scott is an expert in geopolitical issues, don’t miss his thoughts on Russian and China and the precarious position Hillary and eight years of Obama has left us in.

Show Summary: Part II in our continuing series of shows on Hillary Clinton — doing the work that the mainstream media refuses to do: look at her actions. In this episode, we look at her immigration policies and positions and compare those to Donald Trump. They are vastly different. So much for the “Never Trump” and their belief Hillary and Trump are one and the same. Then we will check in with bestselling author, Scott McEwen, on more Hillary actions: her emails that prove she was running the State Department as pay for play, running guns to Syrian (i.e., arming ISIS), and what about those Clinton hit squads?

As a continuation of our look into Hillary’s actions versus her words, we found this week that the amount of stories on her were so overwhelming it was almost difficult to track all of her continuing scandals and new problems.

One of the more impressive about-faces, so typical of lifetime politician, was her “new” position on TPP.  For someone who had helped craft the draconian legislation she suddenly turns about face and is now against its implementation.  This is only after Trump put the media spotlight on the job bleed off that would take place if it were ever implemented.  Her words were very hollow.

Hillary Clinton’s Reckless Immigration Policies

The same occurs with her words on immigration.  Compared to her words in 2003 on immigration, she was more of an immigration hawk than Ted Cruz to where she is today it’s the US doesn’t need borders.  Her flip flops on this issue have been so bad that in 2015 the NY Post to wrote this “The question isn’t whether she believed what she said before, or even whether she believes what she’s saying now. It’s whether she really believes anything at all.” (Hillary Clinton’s flip-flops on immigration)

Hillary-FBISo, on this week’s show we do a compare and contrast of Hillary’s actions versus her words.  To kick off the show Mark Anderson will walk you through Hillary’s immigration plans  and how they compare to Trump’s.  Then we talk with Scott McEwen, and delve into the recent e-mails that disclose so much of Hillary’s actions.  We even talk about the rumored hit squad and the 50 deaths of Hillary’s inner circle of who at one time were close to her.

Obama and Hillary want to destroy the military

Obama and Hillary want to destroy the military

Show Summary (Show Promo): Make no doubt about it: Obama and Hillary want to destroy the military. We hear from former SEAL, Carl Higbie, on the attempt by the military to shut down his free speech. After capturing the second-most wanted terrorist in Iraq, the “Butcher of Fallujah”, his fellow teammates faced courts martial because Carl’s commanding officers sided with the terrorist over their own soldiers after he accused them of “abuse.” The Scott McEwen, who wrote the foreword to Carl’s book, weighs in on the damages that Hillary would do to the military, continuing Obama’s legacy.

Our Constitutional rights are not forfeited once someone joins the military. Our brave military support and defend the Constitution.  But under Obama’s Administration and Hillary’s State Department the military has been reduced to a social Petri dish that has politicized all things—including orders given on the field of battle.  The politicians and bureaucrats’ actions are not only putting America at risk but is creating such a low morale that 90% of the military will not support Hillary and many of those will leave the military should Hillary be elected.

Last week we brought you the ugly story of a “conservative” news source blackballing a journalist because they were in line with the Obama administration on the narrative of Assad killing his own people in Syria, which wasn’t the case. This week, former SEAL, Carl Higbie, tells us his story about his commanding officers turning on their own troops in favor of a terrorist—and trying to ruin his career once he tried to tell the truth.

Carl shares with us the real-life experiences on the battlefield, the decisions that combat troops made to capture the second-most wanted terrorist, and the ugly betrayal those same troops met from their Obama-controlled commanders who tried to court martial them all based on the lies from the terrorist who accused them of “abuse” during his capture, all detailed in his latest book Enemies, Foreign and Domestic: A SEAL’s Story.  Listen to find out how the second most wanted terrorist, The Butcher of Fallujah, was able to manipulate the US Military into almost destroying his captors.

Then our second guest, former Oregonian, Scott McEwen, co-author of American Sniper and the bestselling Sniper Elite series, who is also an expert in military operations and what happened in the Benghazi attack, shares with us what a Hillary presidency would do to our military.

Scott knows all about Carl Higbie’s case (Scott wrote the foreword to Carl’s book) and doesn’t hold anything back on the travesty of what happened. We also discuss whether we will ever know the truth of what happened at Benghazi, the two new whistleblowers that have come forward about what actually happened that night in Benghazi, and how Obama’s administration is attempting to destroy and weaken the capability of what used to be the finest military in the world.

We also get a peek into his new book Ghost Sniper and updates on the movie for his first book of the Sniper Elite Series: Target America.  And stay tuned for his upcoming non-fiction book American Commander.

It’s Memorial Day weekend, the official kickoff to summer. Parades, picnics, hot dogs and apple pie, flags everywhere. It is a great weekend to be an American.

And none of that it possible without the dedication and sacrifice of those who fight to keep this country free. On this week’s show, we do that with bestselling author—and huge supporter of the military—Scott McEwen, whose latest book, The Sniper and the Wolf, just hit shelves this week. Scott joins I Spy Radio for a celebration of America and her heroes.

But before Scott, we’ll talk with Dr. Gerard Lameiro, who will update us on a very real threat to America—one that, up until recently, seemed the stuff of movies and science fiction: an EMP. An electromagnetic pulse is not designed to destroy buildings or kill people; instead, it’s designed to electronics. As incredible as it sounds, when an EMP goes off, all electronics in its blast area are rendered useless—unless they’re protected. (See below for some EMP protection resources.)

An EMP device on board a high-speed missile and launched a few miles from our shore, in international waters, would take only seconds before it could be detonated above major population areas. And it would take years for that area to recover. This is what keeps America’s strategists and defenders up at night. Tune in to hear what, if anything, they’re doing about it. Find out why a billionaire hedge fund manager says, “Of all the things that are possible, nothing is more scary than an electromagnetic pulse.”

Update (May 26, 2015): Mark asked if there were non-nuclear EMPs. According to the Daily Mail, it turns out that there are: a low-powered EMP missile that destroys electrical systems in its path as it flies over. No nuclear warhead needed. “In 2012, aircraft manufacturer Boeing successfully tested the weapon on a one-hour flight during which it knocked out the computers of an entire military compound.”

EMP Protection Resources

There are a lot of great resources on the web – everything from some simple DIY projects to elaborate, pre-made Faraday cages. Do you have a resource we should add? Contact us to add it to the list or add yours in the comment section.

  • One of the best things you can do to protect yourself against an EMP is to store drinking water, food, and other survival items (e.g., heating/cooking sources, and home-protection). Consider that it could take weeks at a minimum for vital systems to recover and probably years to fully recover.
  • Water is hard to store so look to buy a water purification system (consider that you may not be able to boil water). You can find many options out there but a $16 LifeStraw could literally be a lifesaver
  • If you have no other options, or need something quick while you build a better option, an old microwave apparently can be used as a makeshift Faraday cage but it not as reliable as a true Faraday cage
  • A better option is to make a Faraday cage out of a metal trash can
  • EMP cover – this is a unique lined, multi-layer “envelope” that you can slip electronics into

In a week of depressing news stories, we need to remember the real heroes of America, like Chris Kyle—the title character of the blockbuster film American Sniper. We talk with Chris’s co-author Scott McEwen.

Even though American Sniper didn’t get the Oscar nod that its fans hoped it would, it was a tremendous success with the people who truly mattered: the American public. And we can guarantee that the 19 medals and awards that Chris Kyle earned meant far more to him than any silly gold statuette. With the incredible success of American Sniper at the box office, we check back in this week with Scott McEwen, Chris’s co-author, to talk about the film and he does not disappoint. We get his—quite literally—behind the scenes insights into the film, his thoughts on the Oscars and his reflections on Chris Kyle, the man and the hero.

If you’ve seen the film or read the book, you know a big part of Chris’s own healing was to help other vets—only to be tragically killed by a Marine. Now that the trial is over, we’ll get Scott’s take on it as well as the healing help that vets need. And don’t miss his incredible news on what could be the next James Bond franchise.
