6:35 Ian Kingsbury, Research Director at Do No Harm –


In a new op-ed, Do No Harm Research Director Ian Kingsbury highlights how medical schools are trying to get around the Supreme Courts decision striking down affirmative action. Kingsbury shows how medical schools claims that DEI is essential to patient care is “an implicit argument for re-segregating health care.”


Kingsbury talks about medical schools using the debunked racial concordance theory (which DNH has refuted in this report), that patients get better outcomes with physicians that share their race to push this new segregation in schools.


Kingsbury adds “What medical schools are doing will hurt patients, not help them. They need to stop discriminating – now.”



7:35 Brad Bennington from the Builders Association of Southern Oregon

Brad refutes a couple of stories in the Rogue Valley Times regarding the zoning of a quarry located between Eagle Point and Shady Cove and explains how the County Commission did the right thing by following the law. Here are some notes for your follow-up from Brad:

the Freel Quarry Re Zone application that the JC Commissioners approved.

Here are links to the articles that the RV Times published which completely omitted all supporting evidence or testimony:


First article by outdoor reporter Shawn Hall published January 8th


Follow up “Our View” article published January 12th:

My main criticism of both of the RVT articles is that they almost completely ignore the most important components that the Commissioners are required, by law, to observe.

  1. Oregon land use planning law 2.  Facts applicable to the application.  3.  ALL evidence and testimony that have been admitted to the official record.  Their article only presented information that was adverse to the application and ignored the overwhelming amount of evidence and testimony that supported the application.  Worst of all, the subject property wasn’t actually even in the area that was mapped as “critical and sensitive” habitat but appeared that way because of an error in an earlier map.  The Commissioners got it 100% right and the RVT couldn’t have gotten it more wrong if they had tried.  Talk soon.


Brad Bennington

Jackson County Planning Commissioner

Board Member / American Planning Association of Oregon


The context below was provided by Dave Freel, the quarry operator, and he is correct in his statements following.


#  1  The sensitive deer & elk habitat map is factually incorrect  It does not match the actual text / legal description of the area. According to the actual text my property isn’t even in the sensitive deer & elk area. The Planning Commission was given incorrect information when staff said the map takes precedence over the text..that is wrong and probably why some of the Planning Commissioners voted against the zone change. They didn’t think they had another choice.


County Council clarified that mistake by staff at the Board of Commissioners meeting and told the Board that in fact the text takes precedence over the map overlay and that planning staff was wrong in what they told the Planning Commissioners.


#  2   Fish and Wildlife was notified of the rezone application and for almost 2 years never participated in the process until writing a letter 2 weeks

before the Planning Commission meeting recommending denial due to the land being in the sensitive deer and elk habitat area. It is not.

And contrary to what F&W says …mining property can be reclaimed and provide superior habitat to what existed prior to the mining operation.


Up until the Panning Staff received the F&W letter staff told my attorney they were going to recommend approval of the zone change request.

The F&W Biologist had nothing factual to enter into the record except a 8×11 inch map showing the location of some deer that had been tagged and located in areas around the quarry property. We entered 100’s of pages of information. The biologist didn’t know how many deer or elk used the property or how many deer there were in the area, He said “I don’t know” to every question about how, when and where the deer and elk population used the area.

He stated he was sent there by a Superior simply to recommend denial of the application. They are using the “sensitive habitat” monicker to bludgeon the private sector and take away our property rights.


At both the the Planning Commission Meeting and the Board of Commissioners meeting they refused to accept any mitigation efforts from us in spite of multiple options and efforts by us and said they would only accept me signing my property over to the nature Conservancy…ie forcing me to give away my 2,000 acres… the irony is Nature Conservancy doesn’t want it and wouldn’t take it if offered.


#  3   Say for conversation sake the property was in the sensitive area. According to the text there is 131,650 acres in the sensitive area and a

40 acre area temporarily removed for mining a quality proven resource would equal 3 / 100 th’s of 1 %….99.97 % would remain intact.


#  4   We are not “expanding the operation” as per the RV Times report  we are simply asking to rezone aggregate resource acreage so the County

will have a dependable source of affordable high quality aggregate for maintenance and new development. All original conditions remain in place with only one quarry site allowed at a time .. and not to exceed 40 acres.


#  5   We never said the quarry could be open for Centuries,,,that was Charles Bennett from staff that made that claim. I said 30 to 50 years

possibly a lot longer depending on the amount of the resource and the demand for the resource.


#  6   From the time the application was submitted we stipulated that all the original conditions would remain in place with no changes…

Staff repeatedly misrepresented that fact at the hearings.


#  7   We currently sell ODOT spec aggregate to ODOT, BLM,Forest Service, Jackson County Roads, City of Eagle Point, City of Shady Cove,

Eagle Point Irrigation as well as to the Public. We have sold over 1.3 million tons of high quality aggregate over the last 10 years.

You better than anybody realizes how important that really is to the Jackson County community…



8:15 Ryan Walker is the Executive Vice President of Heritage Action for America

He digs into the meeting at the White House this week between President Biden and congressional leadership surrounding the ongoing $110 billion supplemental that includes funding for Ukraine and Israel. HAFA believes conservatives in the House shouldn’t accept anything less than HR 2 to secure the border, foreign military funding should be voted on separately from domestic border funding, and a continuing resolution is not the answer.

6:35 Eric Peters, automotive journalist at with today’s Wheels Up Wednesday talk


7:10 State Senator Linthicum talks the current political issues and he’s speaking 2/3/24 at the Western Liberty Network’s event in Portland. “Take the OFFENSE” Leadership and Activist Training Conference:


7:35 Kevin at Clouser Drilling –

Here’s the link to the groundwater meeting:


I wanted to clarify the current water policy environment in Oregon.  The most pressing issue is The Groundwater Allocation Rules Advisory Committee (RAC) is to look at new water rights permitted wells policy and having a default no answer on new applications.


Oregon is looking at establishing a moratorium on New Water Rights (Permitted Wells) for commercial and AG purposes, but not exempt use domestic wells.  Of course, the moratorium on the New Water Rights Permitted Wells would be devastating to the economy and agriculture in Oregon.  Oregon Water Resources Department does not have sound data to justify this policy direction and is attempting to take some heat off they are getting from the environmental groups such as Water Watch of Oregon.

There are 2 types of wells in Oregon-

  • Exempt use domestic wells- These make up the majority of wells in Oregon.
    • These are wells for domestic household use and are subject to some restrictions.
    • Groundwater uses exempt from needing a water right include: • Stock watering • Lawn or noncommercial garden watering of not more than one-half acre in area • Single or group domestic purposes not exceeding 15,000 gallons per day • Single industrial or commercial purposes not exceeding 5,000 gallons per day • Down-hole heat exchange uses • Watering school grounds that are ten acres or less and located within a critical groundwater area • Emergency firefighting.
  • Water rights permitted Well.  These go through a groundwater evaluation by Oregon Water Resources Department.  This process requires significant fees and can take over 1 year and in the past may or may not be approved.  These are the new wells that are under the moratorium threat!
    • These are wells to be for agriculture and commercial use.
      • Examples would be Hay Farms, Vineyards, cannabis farms, orchards, fruits and vegetable farms etc.
    • These fall in priority under mining law called prior appropriation (first in first in right).
    • Based on the issuing of the water rights permit a specific amount of groundwater and use parameters is allocated under the conditions of the permit.


The best option is to pump the brakes on new rulemaking for Groundwater Allocation until comprehensive basin studies are completed.  This would provide the necessary data to make decisions that are best for all stakeholders and the resource of water.  This is the position of the Oregon Groundwater Association (OGWA).

FAA Now Hiring People With “Severe Intellectual And Psychiatric Disability” – Outraged Forensic Psychiatrist Available For Interviews


Americans were stunned on Sunday afternoon after Fox News reported the Federal Aviation Administration, overseen by Secretary Pete Buttigieg’s Transportation Department, rolled out a new “Diversity and Inclusion” program to hire people with “severe intellectual disability” and “psychiatric disability” (among various other disabilities), just days after the latest mid-air near-disaster involving a Boeing 737 Max heightened the public’s attention to the potentially deadly impact of woke Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion policies in the skies.


“Targeted disabilities are those disabilities that the Federal government, as a matter of policy, has identified for special emphasis in recruitment and hiring,” the FAA’s website read.


This follows December 2023’s bombshell story that some air traffic controllers were under the influence of alcohol or illegal substances while on the job. There were also instances of many air traffic controllers falling asleep while at work.


Carole Lieberman, M.D., M.P.H is a Forensic Psychiatrist, Trial Expert Witness, & Columnist of “Inside the Criminal Mind in Front Page Detectives ( is available for interviews.
