NYC bans calling someone an illegal alien out of hate

Tom Tancredo is an American politician from Colorado, who was elected to the Colorado House of Representatives in 1976 and resigned in his third term to accept a position in the Reagan Administration as the Regional Representative for the United States Department of Education and was reappointed by George H. W. Bush. He was then elected to the United States Congress representing the state’s sixth congressional district in the United States House of Representatives from 1999 to 2009 as a Republican. He ran for President of the United States during the 2008 election and was the Constitution Party’s nominee for Governor of Colorado in 2010 and received 617,030 votes (36.7%), coming in second place, well ahead of the Republican Party nominee, who got about 11% of the vote. Mr. Tancredo has been referred to as Congress’ most vociferous critic of current immigration policy.

Bill’s Guests: Tuesday, October 1, 2019

6:35 Jarrett Stepman, author of The War On History, chats with Bill this morning.

The Left is rewriting the story of America’s founding to present a story of oppression and white privilege. The invaluable lessons taught by our parents, grandparents, and even great grandparents have been forgotten and ignored.

In the book Jarret exposes the Left’s revisionist history with the ultimate goal of turning future generations against America’s founding.

Here’s what you can expect from The War on History:

  • The war on America: World history is full of conquests and suffering indigenous peoples. Why target Christopher Columbus? What they really want to tear down is America.
  • The war on Thanksgiving: World history is full of colonists. Why target the Pilgrims? What they really want to tear down is American freedom and prosperity.
  • The war on the Founding: World history is full of slavery. Why target Thomas Jefferson? What they really want to tear down are the rights endowed by our Creator.
  • The war on the common man: World history is full of victorious generals and populist politicians. Why target Andrew Jackson? What they really want to tear down is democracy.
  • The war on the South: World history is full of civil strife. Why target Confederate heroes like Robert E. Lee? What they really want to tear down is respect for America’s past and the reconciliation that renewed our Union.
  • The war on patriotism: World history is full of national pride. Why target Teddy Roosevelt? What they really want to tear down is the idea of American greatness.
  • The war on the American century: World history is full of bloody wars. What they really want to tear down is America’s defeat of totalitarianism.

7:35: Mike Nearman, Oregon State Representative, (R-Independence) chats with Bill.

Today, we’ll be talking with Rep. Nearman about the decline in paying union members in state of Oregon Schools.

Here’s an excerpt from their release:

The state of Oregon’s disclosure of official statistics tracking union membership numbers exposes the extent to which the Oregon School Employees Association’s strength has been eroded over the last year.

The spike in defections correlates directly with the emphasized outreach of the Freedom Foundation a free-market, public policy organization with offices in Washington, Oregon and California. Despite persistent attempts by labor leaders to thwart its activities, the Freedom Foundation has been working tirelessly since Janus to inform public employees in all three states of their newly affirmed rights.

The group’s Oregon office made OSEA a special point of emphasis six months ago, and the recent numbers offer conclusive proof of its tactics which include distributing tens of thousands of mail pieces, emails and texts, in addition to making thousands of door-to-door visits is working.

In a recent State of Our Union speech, for example, former OSEA President Tim Stoelb boasted that the union represents approximately 23,000 employees.

According to the newly released LM-2 report, however, his union has only 15,130 dues-paying members.

As a direct result of our outreach, OSEA has experienced a membership decline of 36 percent since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled last year in Janus v. AFSCME. This ruling decided forced union dues and fees for workers in the public sector was a violation of their First Amendment rights.

The tax filing also shows that they collected nearly $1 million less in dues and membership fees.

Meanwhile, Executive Director Rick Shidaker took a pay cut of more than $8,000.

In the same speech, Stoelb admitted that they have had to cut spending, close three field offices and rely on a grant from the American Federation of Teachers to fill budget gaps.

All told, the lost dues revenues are costing an OSEA an estimated $4.1 million annually.

This is the largest singular decline recorded in Oregon and among the largest in the nation since the Janus decision.

“We’re always gratified when workers are given the opportunity to decide for themselves whether union representation makes sense for their unique situation,” said Freedom Foundation Oregon Director Mike Nearman. “The fact that so many in this state have chosen to opt out exposes the incredible level of discontent government employees in Oregon have with their union.

“It also follows logically that workers in other states are just as unhappy,” he said, “and the Freedom Foundation is determined to redouble its efforts to help as many as possible exercise their Constitutional rights.”

Sams Valley

By Dennis Powers

Eleven miles north of Medford at Highway 234 and Antioch Road lies the unincorporated community of Sams Valley. The first settlers in the area who owned large ranches were Enoch Pelton and Jose Sizemore, who arrived in the early 1850s. The James Pankey family from Tennessee also settled there, had numerous children, and were part of the large landholding families. The Fitzgerald family began growing fruits and vegetables in the late 1870s on a 320-acre parcel.

The community was first named “Moonville,” when Andrew Moon settled there in the late 1850s and established a general store; the wooden structure also housed Arad Stanley’s drugstore, also the local doctor in the area. A tin shop and blacksmith shop were part of the hamlet. The boundaries of Sams Valley were generally considered to be now Ramsey Road to the west and Table Rock Road or Meadows Road to the east.

Sams Valley was named in honor of Chief Sam of the Rogue River tribe. He signed the peace treaty in the mid-1850s that ended the hostilities between the settlers and Indians, lived on the Table Rock reservation, and subsequently was removed with the tribe in 1856 to southeastern Oregon. Located five miles from Gold Hill on Highway 234, the rich valley produced grains, livestock, dairy products, vegetables, and other products that were wagoned to Gold Hill and outlying areas. 

Sams Valley was as an important provider of food for the many miners and settlers that had flooded into the Rogue River area. Established in 1861 in a log building on Sams Valley Road, its first school was Sams Creek School; the next one was Pankey School that started in 1877. When the railroad chose Gold Hill, Central Point, and then Medford for its stations and right-of-ways in 1884, these towns surpassed Sams Valley in prominence. Nearby Gold Hill became the trading center for the vicinity, and even a few prominent families left for that town. The Ray brother’s construction of Gold Ray Dam in 1903 with its ensuing supply of hydroelectric power furthered solidified Gold Hill’s then prominence.

The important agricultural base continued, however, as most families stayed in an endeavor that they knew and enjoyed. A noted horseman, marksman, and farmer, C.C. McClendon designed and built his farm housewhich still existsin 1856. Tresham Lane was named for Bill Tresham and his three sons who owned a 160-acre ranch and threshing equipment; they traveled throughout the valley during the season to work the farms with their threshers.  

Another important settler was “Grandpa” Hinrich Holst and his wife, who left Minnesota in the 1890s and settled in Sams Valley. A farmer who also became the local banker, he loaned moneyand like Thomas Chavner of Gold Hillwould foreclose when debts could not be repaid, although he did give a grace period or two. Grandpa Holst celebrated his 80th birthday in 1932 and invited nearly everyone that he knew to his annual birthday party; over 235 family, relatives, and friends attended this one. Grandpa was really celebrating, however, his 79th birthday at the time. He felt that when he was born, he was already a year old, so each year he celebrated one year early.

Located in Pankey Cemetery on Ramsey Road is the tall monument to “H. Holst.” He regularly walked to the cemetery in the 1930s from his home and made a plot plan of all of the graves. The pioneering Pankeys donated the land for the cemetery, which dates back to 1863.

Although the precise boundaries of Sams Valley can depend on the resident, it is still dominated by farms, large ranches, orchards, acreage, and now vineyards. The number of working farms has extensively decreased, as commuting to nearby Central Point and Medford replaced farming as the area’s main livelihood. Its peaceful nature, however, and the generations of families who live there still stand out.
