VIDEO – Finally got the video of the old KMED AM1440/KCMX/KEZX tower drop in SE Medford, which I never got to see back in October. Dan Mooney from Eugene was climbing a tower for me this week and discovered HE was the one who got to do it. Better late than never, here’s the video:

6:35 Phil Kerpen, president of American Commitment (, talks with me about a new study contending that almost every government intervention in response to COVID was wrong.  Here’s a quick summary of the COVID analysis paper along with a link to the study…

Four years ago this week, the government initiated unprecedented federal lockdowns of the economy to combat Covid. A just-released comprehensive CTUP study of the academic evidence and dozens of peer-reviewed studies conclude that the ordered shutdown of our schools, churches, and businesses brought little health benefits while imposing multi-trillions of dollars of long-term societal costs.

These costs include a $6 trillion increase in government debt, hundreds of thousands of business bankruptcies, one to two years of lost schooling for young children, tens of millions of Americans out of work, and hundreds of thousands of excess deaths from loneliness, depression, alcoholism, drug abuse, delayed hospital care in part due to the forced social isolation.

The lower wages to workers in the future from the educational losses could be in the trillions of dollars over the decades to come.

These costs exceeded by multiple times any health benefits from mandates and lockdowns.

States that didn’t shut down at all or quickly reopened had no different death rates on average than states that did.  But the non-lockdown states had much swifter recoveries than states that shut down for a year or more.

6:35 Jason Issac, Founder and CEO of the American Energy Institute


Robert F. Kennedy Jr. backed the idea of constructing a national “smart grid,” which would effectively give the government complete control over who can access power.


Not only is the idea of one giant grid riddled with issues, but as Jason Isaac, founder, and CEO of the American Energy Institute, calls it, “pretty radical and pretty unique.” Moreover, “the last thing that the people that run these grids want to do is have one big grid.”


Underinvesting in our grids and distorting the energy market with federal policies, mandates, and ESG investments leave energy companies stranded by producing unreliable energy. At what cost? Blackouts, higher taxes, and higher electricity bills paid for by Americans’ wallets.


Reliability is key, and companies need to be able to meet energy demands. The way to meet that demand is to embrace America’s ability to produce energy with clean fossil fuels.




7:35State Representative Dwayne Yunker – Saying no to the Salem agenda…big deal, folks.

The 1964 Good Friday/Crescent City Tsunami

By Dennis Powers


The March 27, 1964, Alaskan (Good Friday) earthquake with an 8.7 Richter-scale (9.2 on the moment magnitude scale) spawned a major tsunami that traveled the entire Pacific Ocean basin. After causing multiples of death and destruction at Alaskan coastal towns, the oceangoing tsunami left for the U.S. coast, slamming with their worst effects into Crescent City. Located 15-miles south of the Oregon border, this small coastal town of 3,000 people suffered losses that exceeded the combined effects of all previous tsunamis on the Continental U.S.


The four main surges at Crescent City threw many people late at night into life-risking jeopardy. In the space of two hours, 11 people died, 15 others were missing, 60 injured, 30 city blocks devastated, 289 businesses and homes destroyed or damaged, as well as 21 large fishing boats capsized or destroyed (plus numerous smaller ones) with incredible destruction wrought under a full moon late at night.


When people thought that the second flooding was the last, sightseers and residents alike headed down to see for themselves. Two more waves caught them unaware, the last one 21 feet high when it steamed onto land. The surges leveled an entire downtown, and the fatalities would have been much worse had this occurred during the summer-tourist season.


The destruction included ripped-out telephone, sewer, water, and gas lines with the bodies of dead animals scattered over land and sea. The bay was littered at its bottom and near solid in places with destroyed cars, boats, appliances, logs, and lumber, as cars and trucks bobbed up and down with the capsized vessels. Tens of thousands of logs from log farms up to Washington covered the beaches for miles in both directions.


Owing to downed electrical wires sparking ruptured-oil tanks, a bulk tank farm with five, 50,000 gallon tanks and two adjacent oil and gas stations were ablaze. No food, clothing, pharmacies, banking, gas stations, or any amenities were available. Trees were uprooted, asphalt streets ripped out, and 3 million board feet of lumber strewn over land and sea, along with 1,000 wrecked cars, numerous shattered buildings, and countless fish.


The tsunami then steamed past California to Mexico and coursed around the world two times before finally expending its energy. After the destruction, the city and coast had to rebuild, starting that next morning when 200 men and women just showed up with their crowbars, tractors, and raw hands to start cleaning up–although no official call had gone out. As the undermanned fire department fought to put out fires, the Red Cross set up facilities that cared for over 500 people.


City and county work-crews, state and federal forest workers, and state-conservation-camp prisoners arrived to help with the cleanup. Across the U.S., individuals donated money; the Salvation Army, Red Cross, and others sent in disaster relief; the military was called in; and President Johnson declared this a disaster area.


The stories of ordinary people who rose to extraordinary heights came out. The ocean surged over two fishermen at the Klamath River mouth, pummeling them 1-1/2 miles up the river; the U.S. Air Force later awarded posthumously the Airman’s Medal, its highest award for bravery under peacetime condition, for the acts of one Sergeant.


The media lionized nationally others, including Gary Clawson, who swam through the tsunami to secure a rowboat and save two drowning people, then rescued six others–including his father, mother, fiancée, and three friends–only to unbelievably be the only one who survived when the raging ocean swept the boat and its group through a 200-foot culvert underneath Highway 101, an iron grate plugged with debris at its end.


The sea rose over unsuspecting people just going about their lives.  One nationally followed tragedy involved a family camping by the sea in Oregon (Beverly Beach State Park, one-third down the Oregon coast from the Washington border). Four small children drowned, while their grief-stricken parents survived.


Food, clothing, electrical generators, potable water, and portable sanitation facilities were trucked in. From banks and supermarkets to newspapers and gas stations, employees and citizens alike joined together to restart these normal but essential services. The S.B.A. soon established an office for flood loans and disaster relief. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers arranged for private contractors to demolish buildings and rebuilt public facilities. Aided by federal disaster relief and urban development funds, new dock, breakwater, and boating facilities were built, along with a new downtown center called “Tsunami Landing.”


In response, the U.S. Government later constructed its West Coast/Alaska Tsunami Warning Center in Alaska with monitoring devices along the U.S. Pacific Coast. However, experts feel that an offshore eruption of the nearby Cascadia Subduction Zone, or another Alaskan tsunami, could create a disaster of incalculable proportions. Not to mention that tsunamis have hit Crescent City over 35 times since 1934.


Although the 1964 disaster was by far the worst, this area is always a target for even the smallest ones. The March 2011, Japanese tsunami–for example–crossed the Pacific Ocean to sink 11 boats in the harbor, damage 47 others, destroy 2/3rds of the docks, and kill one sightseer. Who knows what the future will bring?
