Stand for climate truth.

Ed Berry, Ph.D., Physics, CCM In the late 1960s, I traveled to South Africa. I saw children with their legs bound to purposely turn them into cripples for life, presumably so they would make money from donations. Today, I see children in America and other countries with their minds bound to purposely turn them into mental cripples for life, presumably so they will support votes for a political cause that in the end will destroy their own country. These children have suffered mind-warping child abuse. This abuse has caused them mental and physical harm. What is worse? A crippled leg or a crippled mind? Those born after about 1995 have been severely harmed. Their teachers, media, and government have programmed them from early ages to believe human CO2 is destroying their world. Their teachers have used fear to make them believe. Fear is known to be the most permanent way to program children’s minds to believe anything. Their teachers have molded these children into a climate alarmist cult that rejects true science. Once inside the cult, the children can no longer think for themselves. They become servants of the BORG that controls them. The young people that become climate alarmists have never been taught true science. For example, how many young people can understand the following simple science? Climate alarmists make four invalid claims:
  1. Human CO2 has caused all the increase in atmospheric CO2 above 280 ppm.
  2. Increased atmospheric CO2 causes global warming.
  3. Global warming causes bad stuff to happen.
  4. Therefore, human CO2 causes bad stuff to happen.
Let’s focus on claim #1. Here is why it is wrong:
  • Simple physics shows that human CO2 causes about 18 ppm of today’s 410 ppm level of atmospheric CO2, while natural CO2 causes 392 ppm. Human CO2 is insignificant to climate.
  • By contrast, the IPCC claims that human CO2 causes 130 ppm of today’s 410 ppm, while natural CO2 causes 280 ppm.
IPCC is the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. It is easy to prove with high-school physics that the IPCC claim is wrong. According to the UN IPCC, the annual flow of human CO2 into the atmosphere is about 4.4 ppm per year and the natural CO2 inflow is about 98 ppm per year. According to simple physics and common sense, the percent of human CO2 in the atmosphere equals the percent of human CO2 in the inflow. It is like a recipe. What you put into a bowl is what is in the bowl. So, get your calculator and do the math. The total of 4.5 ppm per year and 98 ppm per year is 102.5 ppm per year inflow into the atmosphere. The human contribution is 4.5 divided by 102.5 or 4.4 percent. Therefore, the contribution of human CO2 to atmospheric CO2 is 0.044 times 410 ppm or 18 ppm. Therefore, reducing human CO2 emissions will not reduce atmospheric CO2 enough to make any difference in the climate. Alarmism is junk science. There is no climate emergency. Also, the physics model explains why continuing human CO2 emissions will not further increase atmospheric CO2 … but that is another subject. How do the IPCC and climate alarmists justify their claim that human CO2 increased atmospheric CO2 by 130 ppm? Answer: They reject physics. We are not talking about rocket science here. We are talking about what they should have learned in high-school physics. One IPCC argument is that natural CO2 flows freely out of the atmosphere, but human CO2 goes into 4 bins. The CO2 in the first bin flows freely out of the atmosphere. The CO2 in the second bin flows slowly out of the atmosphere. The CO2 in the third bin flows very slowly out of the atmosphere. And the CO2 in the fourth bin stays in the atmosphere forever. This claim is junk science. It is like a wee-wee-wee 4-little-piggy nursery rhyme. Figure 1 illustrates IPCC’s 4 bins for human CO2. Everyone who believes this wee-wee-wee 4-little-piggy argument rejects science. IPCC scientists believe it. National Climate Assessment authors believe it.  Climate alarmists believe it. Too bad they are all wrong. The truth is nature can’t tell the difference between human and nature CO2 because CO2 molecules are identical no matter what their source. Download two new scientific papers as free PDF files. Two recent peer-reviewed scientific publications prove the IPCC alarmist theory is wrong. Both show why human CO2 does not change atmospheric CO2 enough to change the climate. Both prove the UN IPCC climate theory is wrong. Please click on the links and download these two papers. Every download adds to the attention a paper gets. You may be surprised that you can understand much of my scientific paper even if you are not trained in science. Please bring these two scientific papers to the attention of your elected representatives and conservative media. You will help bring climate truth to the people. You can make a difference. Also, notice these papers are not “opinions” because the climate alarmists will try to pass them off as such. These papers are slam-dunk proof the IPCC is wrong. They will prevail in court if a smart lawyer uses them. Science, like legal trials, has a default position. Most law, for example, assumes an accused person is innocent until proven guilty. The same holds for science. The default position (known as the null hypothesis) is that all climate change is assumed to be natural until proven to be human-caused. Human CO2 is innocent until proven guilty. No one has proved that human CO2 causes climate change because natural CO2 prevails over human CO2 in the atmosphere. Natural CO2 emissions increased since 1750 enough to increase atmospheric CO2 from 280 ppm to 392 ppm. The human effect is only an additional 18 ppm. The human effect on climate is completely negligible and removing it completely will not eliminate the dominant natural climate change. The two referenced scientific papers take the additional step. They prove all the IPCC arguments, that the IPCC uses to claim a human cause, fail science. Checkmate. These papers cannot be ignored in any serious discussion of climate change. Help me bring climate truth to the world. Imagine a world with no climate alarmism. We would be able to focus on things that matter and not waste our time and money on climate distractions. Junk climate science would not distort politics and the economy. Colleges would not require students to join sustainability programs. Kids would not proclaim climate emergencies. Governments would save money. Power generation would be more reliable and cost less. Children and students would learn real science rather than fake science. It might help them pay off their college loans. I am building a new website where we can work together to accomplish this goal. It will be a membership website where you can interact with other people. It will include seminars that explain in ordinary language why climate alarmists are wrong. It will provide the science and explanation necessary to win in public debate, but we will not be distracted by more science than is necessary to achieve our political goals. It will provide the simplest and most powerful arguments that you can use to counter the climate alarmists. We have already won the science debate, but few people understand this. The alarmists have no scientific case. Now we must win the political debate. Several people have offered to help fund my work. I thank them very much. My new website will make this possible. The work we plan to do will require money. Already, thousands of people have signed up on my email list. If you are not already on my email list, you may sign up on edberry.com to get information about what I am doing. Our task is great. We must show the public why human CO2 does not change the climate. Our goal is to get climate change out of politics and back into science. The idea that we have a “climate emergency” is a product of a crippled mind. Our job is to stand for climate truth. 8:35: Greg Reeser with Rogue Valley Youth Football joins Bill, live in studio today.

6:20: Jay “The Bird” Reese, sports reporter extraordinaire brings you today’s Sports Report, live from Klamath Falls. 6:35 Mark Seligman, a Josephine County community activist talks with Bill regarding the  Grants Pass Fire District creation issue in Jo County. 7:10 Tom Tancredo, former Congressman from Colorado chats with Bill this morning. Tancredo serves as Advisory Board Member for We Build The Wall. He was author of the famous Bush Era book called In Mortal Danger: The Battle for America’s Border and Security.  BIO: Mr. 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. WEBSITE:  webuildthewall.us The Supreme Court cleared the way for the Trump administration to tap billions of dollars in Pentagon funds to build sections of a border wall with Mexico. The court’s five conservative justices gave the administration the green light on Friday to begin work on four contracts it has awarded using Defense Department money. Funding for the projects had been frozen by lower courts while a lawsuit over the money proceeded. The court’s four liberal justices wouldn’t have allowed construction to start.–AP 7:35 Michael Cross, Lead Petitioner for FlushDownKateBrown.com talks with Bill today. Right now there are two petitions running out there to recall Governor Kate Brown. Michael runs one of them. We’ll tell you all about it. 8:10 Christina Martin, Attorney with the Pacific Legal Foundation’s Florida office in Palm Beach Gardens, talks with Bill. Christina also served as co-counsel and second chair before the U.S. Supreme Court in Knick v. Township of Scott. Today, we’ll talk with Christina about how Oregon profits from tax sales, keeping the profit when selling properties where owners couldn’t pay the taxes. The following op-ed written by Christina Martin  was submitted to The Oregonian back in April of 2019. It’s about Oregon’s abusive tax foreclosure law. It’s all about what happens when an owner doesn’t pay or falls behind on paying their property taxes. As you mentioned, the local government can seize the property, sell it and keep every penny — no matter how small the debt or how large the profits. But as Christina writes below, there is a solution. Representative Ron Noble recently proposed a law to entitle former owners to the profits from the sale of their property. So far, the legislature has failed to move Noble’s bill, let alone give it a public hearing.  The Oregonian did accept it until they found out the bill (HB3199) hit a dead end in the revenue committee, which never even scheduled it for a hearing. Christina co-authored this with Mary Starrett, vice chair of the Yamhill County Commission.

Legislature should end the legalized plunder of Oregon’s foreclosure law

By Christina Martin and Mary Starrett Many of Oregon’s political leaders take pride in what they see as the state’s progressive reputation. They’d have us believe they’re protecting the vulnerable and struggling citizens of Oregon against abuse by the powerful. But while Oregon’s progressive leaders are patting themselves on the back, they might stop to consider why their state is so eager to enrich local governments by seizing the homes and devouring the life savings of the most vulnerable property owners. According to state law, when an owner falls behind on paying their property taxes for too long, the local government can seize the property, sell it and keep every penny — no matter how small the debt or how large the profits. That’s what happened to Allen Reinmiller of Aurora. When Reinmiller failed to pay his property taxes, Marion County officials seized his entire property as payment for a $14,216 in penalties, back taxes, interest and costs. County officials then sold the property for $167,000, without returning the profits exceeding his debt to Reinmiller — a $152,784 windfall for the government. It was a great deal for the county government, but not so much for Reinmiller, who had paid taxes on the land for more 20 years before he lost all his equity. In the end, the county took everything. Sound outrageous? It is — and it’s legal in supposedly “progressive” Oregon. It’s easy to envision how this practice creates a perverse incentive for government officials to foreclose on citizens’ property, since it’s a relatively easy way for cash-strapped local governments to boost revenue. Unfortunately, someone is paying the cost, as such laws disproportionately hurt the financially distressed, the elderly (who are far more likely to own their property without a mortgage) and the sick (often people who struggle with dementia or have been hit with severe medical problems that leave them struggling financially or mentally). Oregon’s abusive tax delinquency policy is in stark contrast to how property owners are treated in neighboring states like California, Washington, and Idaho. In those states, it’s also legal to seize and sell property if the owners don’t pay their taxes. However, once the debt is covered, governments are required to refund the excess proceeds to the former owner. There is nothing “progressive” about Oregon’s tax foreclosure law. It’s little more than legalized plunder. In fact, many courts around the country have already recognized that similar laws violate the U.S. Constitution’s mandate that government pay just compensation when it takes private property for a public use. Oregon’s legislature could easily remedy this problem. Representative Ron Noble recently proposed a law to entitle former owners to the profits from the sale of their property. So far, the legislature has failed to move Noble’s bill, let alone give it a public hearing. Predictably, many county officials have protested Noble’s proposed fix, arguing that state law gives property owners adequate time to catch up on their debts or sell the property. While it is true the law gives Oregonians several years to save their property, that long grace period does not remedy the law’s fundamental problem of allowing government to seize more than it is owed in taxes, penalties, interest and costs. Moreover, it’s hard to escape the conclusion that these officials are simply trying to protect a cozy racket that brings much-needed revenue into the county treasury. So what if a few vulnerable citizens are left destitute, right? The counties are on the wrong side of this issue, and they would be wise to fix the law while they can to avoid huge financial liability. Officials are only a court decision away from being required to pay back that which they unjustly took from the vulnerable. While one federal trial court rejected such arguments in Reinmiller’s case several years ago, the issue is anything but settled. The U.S. Supreme Court has never decided the issue, though there are plenty of cases outside Oregon that could make it before the country’s highest court in the near future.  Such cases, like that of Uri Rafaeli of Michigan, who lost a house because he accidentally underpaid his property taxes by $8.41, underscore the absurdity and injustice of any law that lets the government take more than it is owed. If Oregon is truly committed to the cause of progress, it’s time for state legislators to put an end to these crooked foreclosure practices, once and for all. Christina Martin is an attorney at Pacific Legal Foundation who is representing Uri Rafaeli and other clients in lawsuits challenging the unjust and unconstitutional taking of their equity. Mary Starrett is vice chair of the Yamhill County Commission. At her request, Representative Noble sponsored legislation to end Oregon’s unconstitutional taking of equity. 8:35 Oregon Wine Experience 8:45 Brad from Titan Heating and Air joins Bill in studio for today’s edition of “Whose Business Is It Anyway?”

The Wolf Creek Inn

By Dennis Powers

Built in 1883 as a prime stop on the Applegate Trail–including those on the road traveling the Oregon Stage Coach line between Portland and Sacramento–the Wolf Creek Inn is located twenty-five miles north of Grants Pass; and it has sheltered weary travelers longer than any other hotel in Oregon. The large wooden, two-story building with high-pitched roofs, a colonnaded front porch and upper deck, and wider back had nine guest rooms, complete with dining, reading, and lounging facilities. Merchant Henry Smith contracted to have the premises constructed, and the lodgings were advertised as a “first-class traveler’s hotel.” It was named the Wolf Creek Tavern, which was an old English term for a hotel or lodgings that served food. Smith also accumulated large land holdings in the 1880s, and he planted orchards that are still in existence. The large apple and pear trees next to the Inn and north of the dining room date back to an orchard planted in 1885. The Wolf Creek Inn changed over time from a stagecoach stop, then as a cowboys’ and miners’ lodging with a hot meal and clean bed, and then to automobile travelers with celebrities. Jack London stayed at the Inn in 1911 for several weeks, while he worked on the porch and hiked for a break through the forests behind it. During this time, he wrote a short story entitled “The End of the Story.” He also completed his novel “Valley of the Moon” during another stay. Jack London’s room is on the second floor at the front, and it shows now much as it would have then. A trail near Wolf Creek winds its way to a peak named for Jack London, owing to the time he spent in the area. The summit overlooks Wolf Creek Valley and the tiny town of Wolf Creek. During the 1920s and 1930s, numerous celebrities visited the Inn, including Clark Gable, Carole Lombard, Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks Jr., and Orson Wells. Best known for his role as Rhett Butler in “Gone with the Wind,” Gable was a good friend of the innkeeper in the 1930s and several times stopped by. He enjoyed fly fishing in the Umpqua River a few miles away, staying before and also when married to his wife, Carol Lombard. When the Inn needed repairs, the State of Oregon acquired it and land on Wolf Creek’s north bank in 1975 to preserve the historic hotel. Reviewing the original floor plans, wall coverings, and its history, carpenters and craftsmen rebuilt the structure to bring back the look and feel of the mid 1920’s. The process took four years and the restored Inn is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Although closed for three years for more renovations and then reopened in 2017, the Inn offers overnight stays with different activities, including dinner theatres–all located in the town of Wolf Creek, 1/4 mile from I-5 at Exit 76.

The Recall Effort to Depose Governor Kate Brown is on. You can help. The Oregon GOP needs just over 280,050 signatures to force a special election in either late November, or early December. The deadline to get your petitions in is October 14th. There are three ways to get your petition to sign: 1: Go to: Stoptheabuse-recallkatebrown.org/petition.pdf 2: Email: petition@oregon.gop 3: Call: 1-503-595-8881 RECALL KATE BROWN BECAUSE SHE’S A FELON? (the truth) Listen, I would love to yank Kate Brown’s sorry behind out of office, but be smart about it. Many send me emails/articles/videos of people claiming Kate Brown (and others) are violating the Oregon constitution by accepting large out of state & district contributions. Yes, Oregon voters passed Measure 6 in 1994, which became Article 2, Section 22 of the OR constitution. (look it up) Only 10% of your money under Measure 6 could have come from out of district. BUT it was declared UNCONSTITUTIONAL in U.S. District Court, Vannatta v. Keisling. Here’s a link to the case. https://law.justia.com/…/district-co…/FSupp/899/488/1670497/
The language is still in the constitution, but it is unenforceable. Certainly you can gather your law friends and file a lawsuit to try and overturn this, probably a higher bar to prevail after the Citizens United decision. I’m putting this post up so that all will know the legal truths of the situation. People who read this case, and then continue to spread falsehoods, or vomit out the incomplete legal record because it fits their narrative, are “stuck on stupid”.

It is the Weekly “Update From The Swamp” Get more great content, over at: DailyTorch.com 7:10 Outdoor Report with Greg Roberts, Mr. Outdoors from RogueWeather.com. We’ll also get Greg’s take on the handling of the Milepost 97 Fire, which has filled the Rogue Valley with smoke for the first time this summer. 7:35 Kevin Williamson, Reporter and columnist for National Review and the New York Post talks with Bill. He’s everywhere he’s everywhere…except The Atlantic magazine, where he was “noisily fired” a few months ago due to the Twitter Mob, and he’s author of “The Smallest Minority – Independent Thinking in the Age of Mob Politics.” We dig into how he believes social media is helping destroy individualism and culture. 8:35 Charlotte Hays, Dir. of Cultural Programs with the, Independent Women’s Forum talks with Bill this hour. “We’re all Americans,” you might say to express solidarity, or a sense of kinship, with your fellow citizens. But don’t do that anymore! You might hurt somebody’s feelings. The always interesting Campus Reform highlighted this admonition about the hurtful term “American” in Colorado State University’s Inclusive Language Guide: “The Americas encompass a lot more than the United States. There is South America, Central America, Mexico, Canada, and the Caribbean just to name a few of 42 countries in total. That’s why the word “americano” in Spanish can refer to anything on the American continent. Yet, when we talk about “Americans” in the United States, we’re usually just referring to people from the United States. This erases other cultures and depicts the United States as the dominant American country.” Once you head down this road, almost anything can offend. What might be better is a guide telling young people how to buck up, suck it up, and not take offense at just about anything.

6:35 Dr. Merrill Matthews, resident scholar at the Institute for Policy Innovation chats with Bill. Today we discuss Rx price policy, the Senate proposal of same and the importance of avoiding the price controls contemplated by HHS Secretary Azar. The Senate Finance Committee releases it’s prescription drug price proposal on the cusp of Robert Mueller’s testimony before Congress. That’s a smart move… if one wants to have said proposal completely lost in a news cycle dominated by the Mueller re-hash. The Senate proposal makes a stab at capping Rx costs for seniors on Medicare Part D but comes up short on making sure insurance companies and pharmacy benefit managers (aka PBMs, aka The Middle Men) do their part in lowering Rx costs to patients. It also promotes international price controls on drugs, which is a huge fail because, 1) price controls have never worked in human history, and, 2) price controls clobber medical innovation.

6:35 Carrie Lukas, President of the Independent Women’s Forum chats with Bill. She releases a new book TODAY – Checking Progressive Privilege, new from Encounter Books. Checking Progressive Privilege is available on Encounter Books website.

Carrie Lukas reveals how marginalizing and stereotyping conservatives has warped political environment

Washington, DC — The concepts of white, heterosexual, and male privilege have long been understood and discussed.  But a different form of privilege—Progressive Privilege—has been overlooked. Independent Women’s Forum (IWF) is pleased to announce that on July 23, Encounter Books will release Checking Progressive Privilege, a Broadside by IWF president Carrie Lukas. In Checking Progressive Privilege, Lukas explores the overlooked phenomenon that helps fuel the lack of civility in the debate between sides, makes it harder to distinguish facts from falsehoods, and discourages good people from getting involved. The Broadside reveals how marginalizing and stereotyping conservatives while depicting the progressive worldview as normal and morally superior has warped our political environment and made our country more divided. Lukas issued the following statement: “Checking Progressive Privilege puts progressive privilege in the context of other forms of privilege. It explains how society surrounds us with messages that define those on the political left as normal and morally right, while excluding and demeaning conservatives. Just as importantly, it explains how it isn’t just conservatives who are harmed by progressive privilege, but rather it harms everyone, by making society more polarized and divisive.” Lukas is the co-author of Liberty Is No War on Women, and the author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to Women, Sex, and Feminism. Lukas has written for The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, USA Today, and The New York Post, and testified before the House Ways and Means subcommittee on Social Security and the House Education and the Workforce subcommittee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions. Before joining IWF in 2003, she worked on Capitol Hill as the senior domestic policy analyst for the House Republican Policy Committee and at the Cato Institute. She is a graduate of Princeton University and Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. 8:10 Tom Giovanetti  President of the Institute for Policy Innovation chats with Bill.

7:10 Greg Roberts, Mr. Outdoors from RogueWeather.com, calls in to bring to you the Monday Outdoor Report. 7:35 Mark Walters, spokesman for the Second Amendment Foundation chats with Bill today. A Washington public health summit has been called out for “demonizing guns and gun owners.” The panel featured many victims of gun violence telling their stories. The problem that Alan Gottlieb, founder of the Second Amendment Foundation, has with the panel is that the panel lacks gun experts to speak about proper gun ownership. Instead of teaching Americans proper gun ownership many politicians in America continue to preach the violence that can come from guns.

The Town of Kerby

By Dennis Powers

When driving on the Redwood Highway (Highway 199) from Grants Pass to Crescent City, one passes the tiny places of Wilderville and Selma before coming to Kerby, a short distance before Cave Junction. This old hamlet has about 500 hardy folks from garage mechanics and redwood sculpturers to those who man the Kerbyville Museum. Trailing the Illinois River to there, the Redwood Highway basically follows an old wagon trail that led to the port of Crescent City. The discovery of gold at Sailor Diggings in 1852 along the river brought the first settlers to the Illinois Valley, which was then part of Jackson County. In 1855, James Kerby homesteaded in the valley and one year later, set up its post office as the first postmaster. With the town of Kerbyville named after him, his chosen location was on the main route from the sea and California into the newly discovered gold fields. As miners, merchants, and their families searched for new and easier gold finds, Kerbyville became more populated, especially since it was a stagecoach stop on the way. When Josephine County was carved from the western part of Jackson County in 1856, Sailor Diggings (renamed Waldo) became the first county seatbut only for one year. When its gold began playing out, Kerbyville in an 1857 election became the new county center due to the relocations and its proximity. The county officers then included three county commissioners, sheriff, auditor, treasurer, probate judge, and coroner, along with a U.S. District Court presence. The Oregon Territorial Legislature another year later renamed it as “Napoleon”possibly due to an influential landowner who greatly admired Napoleon III, the then ruler of France and grandson of the Empress Josephinebut the name soon changed back to Kerbyville. The town later became known by its short version of Kerby. When the railroad came through Grants Pass, however, this important development brought it into the forefront, and in 1886 it became the new county seat (which continues to today). With much of the area’s commercial activities centered on gold mining, farming, and supplying provisions to the miners, the area began to decline in the late-1850s to early-1860s when the precious gold became more difficult to find. Residents left Kerby, as well, and the good times came to an end. In 1879 at a sheriff’s auction, Mr. William Nauke bought for $5 nearly two acres of land in Kerby and had a house built for his family. It also served as a general store, post office, and stage stop on the road to the coast. Today, the Kerbyville Museum is part of the Nauke house property. The museum has exhibits depicting the pioneer days, the Illinois Valley in the 1900s, and early Native Americans lifeincluding displays of baskets, grinding tools and stones, blankets, arrow and spear points, pottery, and many other artifacts. The property includes an early-day log schoolhouse built on Sucker Creekand with the important outhouse. The unincorporated community of Kerby is still about the same size it was when being the county seat over 150 years ago, and the museum shows what this looked like. Kerby still exists, but it’s now a tiny suburb of Cave Junction.

The Recall Effort to Depose Governor Kate Brown is on. You can help. The Oregon GOP needs just over 280,050 signatures to force a special election in either late November, or early December. The deadline to get your petitions in is October 14th. There are three ways to get your petition to sign: 1: Go to: Stoptheabuse-recallkatebrown.org/petition.pdf 2: Email: petition@oregon.gop 3: Call: 1-503-595-8881 RECALL KATE BROWN BECAUSE SHE’S A FELON? (the truth) Listen, I would love to yank Kate Brown’s sorry behind out of office, but be smart about it. Many send me emails/articles/videos of people claiming Kate Brown (and others) are violating the Oregon constitution by accepting large out of state & district contributions. Yes, Oregon voters passed Measure 6 in 1994, which became Article 2, Section 22 of the OR constitution. (look it up) Only 10% of your money under Measure 6 could have come from out of district. BUT it was declared UNCONSTITUTIONAL in U.S. District Court, Vannatta v. Keisling. Here’s a link to the case. https://law.justia.com/…/district-co…/FSupp/899/488/1670497/
The language is still in the constitution, but it is unenforceable. Certainly you can gather your law friends and file a lawsuit to try and overturn this, probably a higher bar to prevail after the Citizens United decision. I’m putting this post up so that all will know the legal truths of the situation. People who read this case, and then continue to spread falsehoods, or vomit out the incomplete legal record because it fits their narrative, are “stuck on stupid”.

6:35: Dave Ray, Communications Director for the Federation for American Immigration Reform chats with Bill. We’ll get an idea from Dave about the current state of the crisis on the U.S./Mexico border, and what’s the real story on illegal immigrant apprension stats?

Five Things Worth Knowing About the Drop in Illegal Alien Apprehensions in June

Illegal alien apprehensions along the southwest border fell by 39,934 from last month: that’s the good news. The bad news is that there are several important factors that need to be considered when contextualizing this drop:
  1. As the chart above shows, June apprehension numbers remain 2.5 times more than what they were in June 2018 and five times greater than June 2017, leaving Border Patrol resources taxed and border security in chaos.
  2. Illegal alien apprehensions almost always drop naturally during the hot summer months. In fact, between 2000-2018, apprehension totals at the southern border for June decreased from May in every year but one.
  3. This is the fourth month in a row that apprehensions have surpassed 100,000, a phenomenon this country hasn’t seen in more than one decade. Moreover, in the past, most of those apprehended were quickly repatriated. Now, the vast majority remain in the U.S. pursuing specious claims for political asylum.
  4. Mexico’s promised efforts to apprehend and return illegal aliens at its southern and norther border might be paying off, but it’s too early to tell.
  5. Should apprehensions continue at this pace, it’s virtually guaranteed that we’ll surpass one million illegal alien apprehensions this year, a number that hasn’t been hit since 2006.

Nationwide raids to arrest thousands of members of undocumented families started recently. David Thomas Roberts, author of Death of Liberty, calls the increase in illegal immigration a “Modern Day Gold Rush.” Roberts said, Economic opportunity in America is unmatched, but throw in a free public education, healthcare and welfare benefits on top and surely this is enough for the caravans to continue to grow. But those incentives may not explain the explosive growth of these caravans that have resulted in record apprehensions and the swelling of asylum seekers at ports of entries, overloading America’s broken immigration system. Add in cash payments through a horribly conceived tax code and we have sweetened the incentives that migrant laborers can get a tax credit refund check that exceeds more than they may make in a year, or multiple years – or possibly even a lifetime in Central America. As a native Texan, Roberts has witnessed first-hand how economic benefits, such as public education, welfare, and healthcare, beckon illegal immigrants to our great nation, and how our progressive tax code protects and funds illegal immigrants and their dependents.

Bob Mace: Watchable Wildlife and the Expo

By Dennis Powers

Bob Mace grew up on his family’s homesteaded ranch in Central Point. He graduated in 1942 from Oregon State University in fish and wildlife management. His wife, Phyllis, was a 1943 graduate of OSU’s College of Science. After a four year stint in the U.S. Navy, he joined the Oregon Game Commission in 1946. In the early ’50s, he managed the re-introduction of California bighorn sheep in Oregon, devising the massive traps and arranging a deal with British Columbia that allowed Oregon to trap 26 bighorns there in 1954. Twenty survived their trip to Hart Mountain and formed the heart of Oregon’s bighorn sheep herd. That herd grew sufficiently to support upwards of 75 hunting tags per year. He also instigated the re-introduction of mountain goats to Northeast Oregon and worked on several other game species through the ’60s. By the 1970s, he had risen to deputy director of the newly merged Oregon Department of Fisheries and Wildlife (ODFW). In 1973, the Oregon Legislature gave the department responsibility over non-game species. In 1979, Mace coined the phrase “watchable wildlife” and permanently changed the way people think of small animals and birds, a more positive name for wildlife not sought after by hunters (then called “non-game”). “Watchable wildlife” became an almost universal phrase, employed by governmental agencies and university departments around the country. He retired in 1981 after 35 years in the ODFW. During his lifetime, he was an avid fishermen and waterfowl and elk hunter. Starting in 1997, he and his wife made annual gifts to support a faculty position and scholarships at OSU in watchable wildlife. Their estate gift created an endowment for the Watchable Wildlife Chair and annual scholarships for students majoring in fish and wildlife. Preceded in death by his wife, Bob Mace passed away in 2006. His will included the creation and funding of a nonprofit to enhance wildlife viewing in Southern Oregon. In the summer of 2009, the nearly $1 million, 6,000-square-foot Robert and Phyllis Mace Watchable Wildlife Memorial Center at the Jackson County Exposition Park was completed; it is a general meeting/exhibition center, near the pond named for Phyllis Mace, his wife. His Central Point 165-acre ranch, amid the gravel pits and cattle pastures, overlooks the Rogue River where the Agate Desert meets the river with a frontage nearly the length of six football fields. The property, including the gravel operation, went into a trust fund managed by the Oregon Community Foundation. The trustees sold the excavation rights to nearby Knife River Materials, with the royalties for the excavated gravel to go to the trust, estimated to grow “into the millions of dollars” as Knife River excavates as much as 130 acres over the decades. Once abandoned, the quarry will fill with groundwater as others in the High Banks Road area have. Eventually it will create a roughly 125-acre lake with a maximum depth of 60 feet to be stocked with rainbow trout. The land eventually will be deeded to the ODFW and managed as an extension of the agency’s Denman Wildlife Area under a unique agreement that could take decades to play out. This is to become a day-use area for picnickers, birders, anglers and others, as the nearby Whetstone Creek is restored as a habitat anchor, all to provide uses not currently offered along the valley floor.

Parents’ RALLY to Defend Rights is interrupted by Junior ANTIFA members! July 11, Noon, Pioneer Courthouse Square, Portland OREGON A peaceful gathering of law abiding volunteers, turned into nothing less than criminal harassment dominated by a rag tag group of ANTIFA activists. While Parents’ Rights In Education (PRIE) members, a non-profit organization dedicated to defending parents’ rights to direct the education of their children, gathered on the steps of the Pioneer Courthouse Square, Portland, Oregon, waiting for an interview with KPTV12 reporter Debra Gill, they were attacked by the angry mob, Youth Liberation Front. Because the PRIE group were attending a 9th Circuit hearing at the Pioneer Courthouse across the street from the public park, it seemed perfectly normal to plan a gathering there during the Noon hour, grab a bite to eat, and talk with the citizens about issues. When another reporter, Marja Martinez arrived with her cameraman to conduct the interview, PRIE Director Suzanne Gallagher was attacked by masked men with blow horns shouting toxic transgender epithets.

The co-founder of the national 501c3 nonprofit Beaulah’s Place was a victim of severe child abuse, and has since dedicated her life leading homeless teens away from sexual exploitation by criminals and predators. Her extraordinary work takes teens off the streets and into a stable schedule with a roof over their heads and viable employment. Buerger and her husband, Ed, started the nonprofit in 2008 in their hometown of Redmond, Oregon. “When we allow our children to be sold, to be used as a commodity, to be violated, persecuted, neglected, discarded and preyed upon by criminal influences, we deteriorate as a civilized community,” Andi Buerger said. “There is nothing civilized about using the weak, the innocent, the vulnerable for selfish gain. I am living and leaving a positive legacy that can be adapted on any scale for the purpose of saving the future of our country, and that future is our youth.” Human trafficking is a $13 billion per year criminal enterprise in the U.S., making it second only to the illegal drug trade. Many teens who leave home are looking for a safety net from abuse, but are lured by traffickers with the promise of a hot meal and a place to sleep. The traffickers use these children until they can be used no more – until they are too sick to earn, or dead. An abused young person faces a path of drugs, sexual exploitation, homelessness and worst of all suicide. “When our teens start working regularly, it provides not only financial compensation, but valuable structure for their lives,” Andi Bueger said. “Having something to get up for, show up for and do during the day or night greatly aids the independence they eventually acquire.” Beulah’s Place began as a vision to feed these hungry and homeless teens on a daily basis. Andi Buerger’s primary focus and education tool is to engage these street teens and the daily work with law enforcement and District Attorney’s offices to better assess and serve vulnerable youth. Andi Buerger escaped devastating conditions in her youth, and is a compelling advocate who provides victims and at-risk kids with homes, hot meals, jobs, healing and hope. Beulah’s Place is made possible thanks to partnerships with other nonprofits, including Childhelp, Protect The Children, InvestYourself.com and Mothers Against Sexual Abuse. 7:10 Greg Roberts, Mr. Outdoors himself, joins Bill in studio for the Tuesday Outdoor Report and Fire Talk.

New York the Supreme Court sent back to the Department of Commerce the census question on citizenship. Chief Justice Roberts first made clear that the Department could constitutionally ask a question about citizenship on the census.  The enumeration clause, a majority of the Court found, permits the Department of Commerce “to inquire about citizenship on the census questionnaire.”  Since 1790, the census has asked questions about matters as varied as sex, marital status, health, profession, literacy, and value of real estate owned.  Since 1820, Congress has sought or permitted the Secretary to ask questions about citizenship.  The history of the census established that all “three branches of government have understood the Constitution to allow Congress … to use the census for more than simply counting the population” and specifically for “information gathering purposes.” See more over at:IWF.org 8:10 Dr. Dennis Powers “What Made Southern Oregon Great” See more from Dr. Powers over at his website: DennisPowersBooks.com

Cave Junction

By Dennis Powers

Although gold mining was an important factor at first in the Illinois Valley, this did not lead to permanent towns or cities: It was the Oregon Caves, its development, and building road access. Elijah Davidson discovered the Oregon Caves in 1874 while bear hunting deep in the Siskiyou Mountains. After shooting a deer, he followed his dog to a large hole in a mountain (now renamed Mount Elijah after him). Making his way carefully into the black darkness, Davidson lit match after match to find the silhouettes of caverns, stalactites (hanging down like icicles) and stalagmites (from below, sticking up). Telling others about his discovery, the labyrinth of caves and passageways became fairly known, but its remote location kept exploration to only the adventurous. Experts determined that acidic rainwater from the ancient forest above had dissolved the underlying marble to create one of the world’s rare marble caves. In 1907, Joaquin Miller–the fabled “Poet of the Sierras”–visited the caves and was so impressed that he wrote an article about its unique beauty. Published by Sunset Magazine and entitled “The Marble Halls of Oregon,” this publicity gave the caves nationwide exposure. As a result of the continued advocacy, President Taft designated the 480-acre Oregon Caves in 1909 as a national monument. Commercial cave tours didn’t become viable until 1922 when a road (Oregon Hwy. 46) was funded and completed by the Oregon State Highway Commission and U.S. Forest Service (“USFS”) to the monument from the Redwood Highway (Hwy. 199). One year later, the USFS agreed with a group of Grants Pass businessmen to finance the lodging and staff to run the resort (a concessionaire now does this), while it (later the National Park Service—or “NPS”) provided oversight and infrastructure, including cave lighting, trails, and a water system. The increased traffic led to a community developing at the junction of the Redwood Highway and Highway 46. Originally known as Caves City, it was established in 1926 on land donated by Elwood Hussey. In 1935, its post office was named as Cave Junction (since it wasn’t an incorporated city, this new name was agreeable). The locality became incorporated as Cave Junction in 1948, and it is the only incorporated area in the Illinois Valley. Not surprisingly, the city’s motto is the “Gateway to the Oregon Caves.” Over time, the chalet, cottages, dormitory, and six-story Chateau were built, rebuilt, and renovated. In 2014, Congress expanded the monument nearly 10-fold, from 480 acres to approximately 4,550. An extensive modification of the Chateau began in late 2018, whereby this structure will be closed through 2020. Until then, the Oregon Caves is still open to tours and overnight camping at campsites, but there is no food available at the park. Cave Junction continues on as its “gateway” along with tourism, wineries, and the legalization of cannabis as economic supports. Its population is approximately 2000 hardy folks.

The Oregon House recently passed the state’s Climate Action Plan establishing a state-wide cap-and-trade program to limit greenhouse gas emissions. The bill next goes to the Senate where Democrats hold a super-majority. With GOP senators unable to stop what they deem to be freedom-sapping and economically crippling legislation, they refused to attend a scheduled June 20 session to preclude a needed quorum for a vote on the bill. With the Governor now threatening to use the state police to force Senators back to their chamber, it would be a good time to look at the cold, hard facts of what this bill will and won’t do. The very basis for the bill is based on severely flawed science, the increased costs would be economically harmful and successful implementation would have virtually no effect on temperature. The chief architect of the historic legislation, Rep. Karin Power, stated that failing to take action would “make the planet, as we know it, uninhabitable.” She went on to say, “We are showing other states that it’s not an impossible dream to hold big polluters accountable and use the funds to invest in clean energy and in our most vulnerable communities.” Here’s More: inconvenientfacts.xyz/blog/f/oregon-climate-action-plan-%E2%80%93-economic-pain-for-zero-benefits 8:10 Dr. Rick Kirschner & Jennifer Margulis Ph.D chat with Bill today.

6:35 Brian Hodges, Senior Attorney with the Pacific Legal Foundation chats with Bill today.  
Last Friday  morning, the U.S. Supreme Court delivered a major victory for PLF client Rose Knick and all property owners, allowing them to fairly fight back when government takes their property without paying for it. In Knick v. Township of Scott, Rose Knick asked the Supreme Court to overturn a 1985 precedent that allowed federal courts to refuse to hear her challenge to a local ordinance that forced her to allow public access to her private farmland. The decision held that the precedent, known as Williamson County, was wrongly decided, and that federal property rights are entitled to the same respect in federal courts as other constitutional rights. For Rose, who made the trip from Pennsylvania to D.C., first in October, then in January after the justices called for a rare reargument, the decision is a huge relief. “I’m so thankful for all the time the Supreme Court spent on this case and for the hard work PLF has done to protect the property rights of all Americans,” Rose said. “All I’ve ever wanted was to be able to enjoy my farm in peace and quiet. Now I can actually hold the Township accountable for taking my private property in federal court!” Writing for the majority, Chief Justice John Roberts said, “Williamson County was not just wrong. Its reasoning was exceptionally ill founded and conflicted with much of our takings jurisprudence.” “The Court’s decision to reject barriers that unfairly deny property owners their day in court sends a message that property rights are just as sacred as all other rights,” said PLF attorney Dave Breemer. “Thanks to Rose’s courage and the Supreme Court’s careful examination of this issue, property owners should now receive a prompt and fair federal hearing when the government takes their property for public use but fails to pay compensation.” Today’s decision will change the way takings claims are litigated nationwide, offering quicker and more certain relief to property owners whose property is taken by state and local governments.

Susie Jessel: The Spiritual Healer

By Dennis Powers

People travel to or live in Ashland for different reasons, and for some it is as a place for different approaches for healing. From the earliest days, Native Americans believed in the spiritual powers of the area’s mineral springs; Ashland’s Lithia water and different mineral-spring spas were an attraction from the early 1900s. Although these demands and springs over time diminished in importance, the town continued to attract these practitioners and those who wanted non-traditional healing ways. Susie Jessel was unknown when she and her family moved to Ashland in 1931 to begin her healing practice. Area residents had no idea she would become a magnet for those searching for help from different conditions that ranged from bad colds to arthritis and cancer. Over thirty years, countless thousands of patients filled the local hotels and restaurants—greatly assisting the town’s economy—as they waited to see the thin woman who became a nationally-recognized healer. Born in 1891 in North Carolina, Susie was the last of nine children, her mother being 52-years-old at the time. She was born with a caulor a membrane covering her facethat in the local lore meant she had been born with a gift. When her mother put the baby in the arms of others, she noticed the infant seemed to have a healing effect. Susie’s earliest memory was that of her mother carrying her as an infant through the cornfields at night to be placed into the arms of someone who was ill. When Susie Jessel was older, the afflicted constantly called upon her to heal their various sicknesses. Susie tried to avoid this by becoming a schoolroom teacher, then as a seamstress, but left this when she met and married Charles H. Jessel. She was later busy then raising her six children. Prior to then, however, a vision of Jesus came that called upon her to be a healer of the sick, but she couldn’t do this due to her family responsibilities and hard farm work. Leaving North Carolina, the family first moved to South Dakota before heading eventually to Ashland, where she opened her clinic in 1933. Susie did not advertise nor ask money for her services, and told patients that she wasn’t a healer: She said she was only a vehicle for God’s work, but also that her ability was given to her by “My Creator.” More and more people came to her clinic, as the word spread, and her overriding goal was to heal “suffering humanity.” A sign in the clinic read, “With God All Things Are Possible.” Mrs. Jessel came to her clinic every afternoon and stayed until the last patient was seen, which could be very late at night and turn into 16-hour sessions. Bandaged or holding their head in their hands, the sick and afflicted sat patiently in her waiting room. Once inside a private room, Susie asked the patient not to tell her about their particular ailment. Letting her hands find the location, she passed them over the torso of the sitting patient, stroking the arms from shoulder to hands, as well as the legs if the trouble could be there. Often times, the veins on the back of her hands hardened and stood up once over the place. She wouldn’t make a diagnosis, although perhaps commenting on the condition, and then told the person when he or she could return home. A treatment took from one to three minutes, and different sessions before the patient’s condition was considered to be improved. No forcing, poking, or manipulation was done. The treatment ended when Susie walked over to a stand, wiped her hands on a wet towel, and her veins returned to normal. After True magazine profiled her nationally in 1943, she was soon seeing up to 600 people a week. Numerous patients traveled thousands of miles to see the healing woman who had the touch. Time brought even more recognition with a 1953 article that began: “In a white frame building in Ashland (pop. 8,000), Ore. one afternoon last week, some 140 people packed into seats in a low-ceiling, fetid room, 30 ft. square. Many wore bandages or held to canes and crutches. Some bore the grimace of chronic pain. But all stood up when a thin, wrinkled woman in white nurse’s uniform and fancy-print apron with prominent pockets came in. Faith-Healer Susie Jessel raised her arms toward a picture of Christ on the wall and said: ‘I dedicate my hands to the Lord…’” She accepted very little money, a dollar or less per patient tucked inside her apron. Larger gifts were either discouraged or returned; many seemed to give nothing but a word of thanks. Much of the money received was used to house and care for patients who didn’t have the resources to stay in Ashland for the longer periods needed for their treatment. One writer reported, “A count of autos, lined up on the street in front of the healing room, added up to 20 from states from Texas to Maine plus a number with Oregon licenses.” Charles Mayo of the Mayo Brothers Clinic in Rochester, New York, was the most famous visitor to the clinic, and physicians in town shared or referred patients to her. A girl came from San Francisco to see the famous healer and benefit from Jessel’s treatment for her juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. She became better. When her family moved to Ashland, she set up a coffee shop next to the treatment room to serve Susie’s patients and stayed in town for the rest of her life. Susie died in 1966, but two of her children continued on. Her son, Joe, carried on with her work until he passed away in 1975; her daughter, Alma, then took over. In Ashland, there are numerous non-traditional medical practitioners: from massage therapists, chiropractors, and nutritionists to herbalists, psychic healers, and reflexologists. Practitioners work with acupuncture, energy fields, crystals, past-life therapies, deep-tissue work, and other ways. Susie Jessel’s life and work stand out—and truly meets the passage of time.

6:35 Rick Manning, President of Americans for Limited Government talks with Bill. It’s the Weekly Swamp Update. Several conservative radio and TV hosts and commentators are going after President Trump for his response to Iran shooting down a U.S. drone. Some call it an act of war, others, maybe not so much?

7:10 Outdoor Report with Greg Roberts, Mr. Outdoors himself from RogueWeather.com.

7:35 Josh Marquis, former Oregon District Attorney talks with Bill.

The Animal Wellness Foundation (AWF) and Animal Wellness Action (AWA) have announced the formation of a National Law Enforcement Council (NLEC), co-chaired by Drew Edmondson and Josh Marquis, and dedicated to enforcing our federal, state, and local laws against animal cruelty. Edmondson served for 16 years as Oklahoma’s Attorney General and Marquis as Clatsop County, Oregon District Attorney for 25 years.

“One measure of a civil society is how it treats its most vulnerable members, and few are as vulnerable as the animals,” said Drew Edmondson, who served as Muskogee County District Attorney for a decade before becoming Oklahoma Attorney General. “We have a moral duty to show mercy toward all of God’s creatures.” Edmondson, who had a major role in preserving the state’s 2002 ban on cockfighting, served as a former president of the National Association of Attorneys General.

There is a documented link between animal cruelty and other forms of human-on-human violence and criminal conduct. The FBI’s homicidal triad includes early-age acts of animal cruelty. Animal fights are often staging grounds for a range of other illegal behavior. In homes where a man harms a spouse or a girlfriend, he will often turn his violent instincts toward a child or an animal.

“Cruelty to animals is not some isolated, easily compartmentalized act of aggression,” added Josh Marquis, who prosecuted numerous cases of animal abuse and neglect that were widely cited in the successful effort to secure passage of Oregon’s felony anti-cruelty law. “When we stamp out animal cruelty and apprehend people who have lost empathy for the suffering of others, we make our communities safer for everyone.”

The Animal Wellness National Law Enforcement Council (NLEC) is focusing at the moment on enforcement of our federal anti-cruelty statutes, including laws against animal fighting, and offering assistance to law enforcement authorities as needed. The NLEC is also urging increased funding for anti-cruelty enforcement at the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Department of Agriculture and also advocating for the passage of the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture (PACT) Act, which would create a national anti-cruelty statute to crack down on perpetrators of acts of malicious cruelty with a federal nexus.

The National Law Enforcement Council includes a number of prosecutors who have distinguished themselves in their public advocacy and continue to advocate for safer communities for people and animals.

8:10 Arthur Holland Michel, author of “Eyes in the Sky: The Secret Rise of Gorgon Stare and How It Will Watch Us All,” talks with Bill today.

Did you know that the most extensive domestic wide-area surveillance operation to date took place in Baltimore in 2016? During this time police ran a surveillant gaze covering 32 square miles of the city over the course of more than a hundred days. Arthur Holland Michel, codirector of the Center for the Study of the Drone, spent two remarkable days entrenched at the still-secret CSP operations center, witnessing first-hand how the program watched the city’s population.

Since before George Orwell’s classic 1984 introduced the quote “Big Brother is Watching You,” we’ve long been unsettled by the possibility of being watched, either by the government or private companies. But what if what was once fiction is now a reality? Journalist and codirector of the Center for the Study of the Drone, Arthur Holland Michel gives us the authoritative account of how the Pentagon developed Gorgon Stare, a godlike surveillance system that’s already patrolling American skies. EYES IN THE SKY: The Secret Rise of Gorgon Stare and How It Will Watch Us All dives into this new technology that can track 1,000 moving targets at once. Drawing on extensive access within the Pentagon and the companies that developed this technology, EYES IN THE SKY narrates how the most nightmarishly powerful visual surveillance system ever was created and who is rushing to get their hands on it.

6:35 Melanie Collette with Project 21 talks with Bill today.

Project 21, a leading voice of black conservatives for over 25 years, is sponsored by the National Center for Public Policy ResearchContributions to the National Center are tax-deductible and greatly appreciated, and may be earmarked exclusively for the use of Project 21.

We discuss reparations’ hearings on Wed. and “Juneteenth”

In observance of “Juneteenth,” the oldest and most popular commemoration of the end of slavery in the United States, members of the Project 21 black leadership network urge black Americans to go beyond just celebrating past achievements. Instead, black Americans are urged to break free of mental and emotional bonds that can restrict them from taking full advantage of the opportunities now available to them.

“Juneteenth is essentially the black Independence Day – recognizing our emancipation from slavery,” said Project 21 member Adrian Norman. “And although we take time to look to the past when we recognize this day, it’s important that we also acknowledge and appreciate the great distance we are from that sordid past and take greater steps toward bringing to our communities the fullness of the American Dream.”

Juneteenth commemorates the anniversary of the June 19, 1865 arrival of Union troops in Galveston, Texas. They brought with them news of the end of the Civil War two months earlier and President Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation that abolished slavery two-and-a-half years earlier.

Galveston’s former slave population began celebrating its freedom on the anniversary of this day in an event called Juneteenth. It became a motivating and stabilizing commemoration for black Texans experiencing uncertainties associated with their newfound freedom and full integration into American society.

The observance of Juneteenth and its emphasis on black advancement spread from Texas across the United States. Today, 46 states and the District of Columbia officially recognize and commemorate Juneteenth. Modern Juneteenth picnics and parades continue to celebrate self-improvement and education, and Project 21 members want to see that focus become a yearlong quest.

“As we celebrate the anniversary of the recognition of the Emancipation Proclamation in Texas and other former Confederate states, we must acknowledge great freedoms and accomplishments by black Americans while realizing our own potential. If we do not, we risk subjugation from other sources,” said Project 21 member Marie Fischer. “Despite the fact that we are no longer in physical bondage, too many black Americans are in the grips of a mental and emotional slavery that could undermine the work of abolitionists and civil rights leaders over the centuries.”

Fischer added:

“Too many of us laud our young men and women who go into sports and entertainment instead of becoming educators and first responders. We glorify ‘gangsta’ culture as black culture instead of glorifying fatherhood. We look to abortion as women’s health instead of taking on and promoting proactive mental and physical health practices for men and women. We use ‘Uncle Tom’ to denigrate other blacks without realizing the real Uncle Tom, Josiah Henson, built a self-sufficient all-black community. If we continue down this path, we are still enslaved.”

“Juneteenth can serve as an intensive look at the unprecedented leaps forward taken by America’s former captives. It is also a time to assess what their descendants have done with that hard-won freedom,” said Project 21 member Nadra “Cap Black” Enzi. “I’d argue this freedom is wasted in the age of the ‘Urban Stockholm Syndrome’ of millennial rioting on behalf of dead career criminals who enslave the inner city in violence, addiction and theft.”

Recognizing that too many black families suffer from conditions undermining upward mobility and perpetuating unacceptable levels of poverty, crime and other social ills, and believing that government programs have transformed the nation’s social safety net into a vicious cycle of dependency, Project 21 created the “Blueprint for a Better Deal dod Black America.”  The Blueprint identifies 10 key areas for reform and offers 57 concrete, budget-neutral recommendations to remove barriers blocking black Americans from reaching their full potential and ensuring that the American dream is attainable for all. Project 21 leaders have briefed key staff at the White House and with congressional leadership about the ideas available in the Blueprint.

“The celebration of Juneteenth reminds us of the value of freedom, even when delayed. While we reflect on what was lost, and our spirits are renewed by the many ways black Americans have contributed to science, the arts and inventions, there is more work to be done,” said Project 21 member Melanie Collette.

“Juneteenth provides an opportunity to be refreshed with a view toward the future. Continued work toward necessary reforms like those in Project 21’s “Blueprint for a Better Deal for Black America” is critical to the success of black America.”

7:35 Jeremy Dys, an attorney with First Liberty chats with Bill.

Monday the Supreme Court of the United States announced that it reversed a decision the state of Oregon that forced bakers Aaron and Melissa Klein out of business by penalizing them $135,000 for refusing to create a government-approved message.  The case was sent back to the Oregon courts for further review in light of its Masterpiece Cakeshop, Ltd. v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission.  The Kleins are represented by First Liberty Institute and Boyden Gray & Associates.

“This is a victory for Aaron and Melissa Klein and for religious liberty for all Americans,” said Kelly Shackelford, President, CEO, and Chief Counsel to First Liberty. “The Constitution protects speech, popular or not, from condemnation by the government.  The message from the Court is clear, government hostility toward religious Americans will not be tolerated.”

Former Ambassador to the European Union, C. Boyden Gray and Adam Gustafson, of Boyden Gray & Associates, First Liberty network attorneys, are the lead appellate counsel for the case.

In Masterpiece Cakeshop, Ltd. v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, the Justices reminded government officials that they cannot be hostile to the free exercise of the religious beliefs of its citizens.

The State of Oregon’s Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI) found that the Kleins had had violated Oregon’s public accommodations statute after Aaron and Melissa declined to design and create wedding cake celebrating a same-sex marriage.  In addition to the $135,000 penalty for “emotional damages,” BOLI issued a gag order, preventing them from even talking about their actual beliefs.  As a result, the Kleins were forced to shut down their bakery. Aaron and Melissa appealed the BOLI ruling to the Oregon Court of Appeals in April 2016. The Oregon Court of Appeals reversed the gag order but otherwise upheld the decision of BOLI in December 2017.

8:10 Ken Oliver-Mendez with  MRC Latino, talks with Bill today. Today, we’re discussing Univision’s court battle over the 2020 Census question regarding citizenship.

The battle to include a question on citizenship status in the upcoming 2020 U.S. Census has driven Univision beyond its usual brand of activism. Now, the network has evolved into being an active participant in the legal proceedings surrounding the question. Never mind that Mexico, Canada, and Spain all pose citizenship questions. Univision has taken it upon itself to “Stand Up for Hispanic America”, facts notwithstanding.

For years, we’ve posited that Univision primarily exists as an immigration special-interest group with a TV studio. The network’s “Hispanic America” language belies the fact that most of its audience is out West. There is no monolithic “Hispanic America”, and the 2016 election proved that Univision neither speaks for the community, nor has the power to persuade it to the extent of flipping a presidential election.

This legal action now suggests an evolution in furtherance of that special interest, and raises questions as to how far Univision might be willing to go.

6:35 Dr. Vicki E. Alger, Senior Fellow at the Independent Women’s Forum, talks with Bill. It’s Common-Core’s 10th birthday. And, well, I’m not sure who really cares? We’ll talk with Dr. Alger about why there’s not really any reason to celebrate.

Here’s a snippet of Dr. Alger’s article from IWF.org…

“Common Core turns ten this month, but results from a new report suggest there’s not much reason to celebrate.

Researchers with the federally-funded Center on Standards, Alignment, Instruction and Learning (C-SAIL) examined fourth- and eighth-grade reading and math performance changes from 2010 through 2017 on the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). Chalkbeat’s Matt Barnum reports that the CAIL study: “…shows that states that changed their standards most dramatically by adopting the Common Core didn’t outpace other states on federal NAEP exams. By 2017 — seven years after most states had adopted them — the standards appear to have led to modest declines in fourth-grade reading and eighth-grade math scores. “It’s rather unexpected,” said researcher Mengli Song … “The magnitude of the negative effects tend to increase over time. That’s a little troubling.”

7:10 Outdoor Report with Greg Roberts from RogueWeather.com.

7:35 John Perazzo, Managing Editor of DiscoverTheNetworks.org and the author of Betrayal: The Democratic Party’s Destruction of America’s Cities. talks with Bill.

Filmmaker Ava DuVernay’s new Netflix series, When They See Us, is being billed as an important exposé of the American criminal justice system’s racist underbelly. As a review explains, it is the “riveting” story of how that system coerced and intimidated five innocent “teenage boys of color” into confessing to the highly publicized “rape and vicious assault of Trisha Meili, a white investment banker,” in New York’s Central Park on April 19, 1989.

We are told that the boys – Kharey Wise, Antron McCray, Yusef Salaam, Kevin Richardson, and Raymond Santana – tragically had “their youth snatched from them” by the false convictions and the subsequent prison sentences that they served. In a similar vein, another review lauds DuVernay for her success in “humanizing” these same “innocent young black and brown” victims of institutionalized “abuse, mistreatment and manipulation.” A New York Times headline depicts DuVernay’s series as “The True Story of How a City in Fear Brutalized the Central Park Five.”

It’s a story we’ve all heard many times before. And it is a damnable, disgusting lie.

Ava DuVernay’s racist propaganda film targeting whites, characterizes them as “disgusting” expressions of anti-black racism. DuVernay’s interpretation of Trump’s words, along with her whitewashing of the Central Park Five’s horrific crimes, demonstrate just how morally sick the modern Left has become.

The City of Phoenix

By Dennis Powers

The first resident of what later became Phoenix was Samuel Colver, who in 1851 took out a donation land claim. He built a cabin on what is presently Highway 99 in Phoenix. With the discovery of gold in Jacksonville, miners and settlers came into the Rogue Valley in numbers, including around where Colver had his land. In 1854, he laid out the town, which was known then as Gasburg.

As the story goes, numbers of young bachelors were in the town and working at the local flour mill, but with very few young, marriageable women. Kate Clayton was helping to cook for the men at the mill and had different admirers. She was about twenty years old, but had a remarkable ability to carry on different conversations with her smitten men, while she was cooking at the same time. Owing to her skills at conversation and not missing an order, she received the nickname of “Gassy Kate.” When the men were deciding on the name for the town, the men came to naming it after Kate as “Gasburg.”

The owner of the grist mill was Sylvester Wait, who was also an agent for the Phoenix Insurance Company of Hartford, Connecticut. When the post office was established at the mill in 1857, he took the large metal, insurance-company plate and attached it to the front of his building as the name of the post office. Although it took time for the residents to stop calling the town as Gasburg, it eventually took the name on the post office of Phoenix.

When the railroad came through in 1884, Phoenix was on the line and a possible nominee for the county seat. Nearby Medford won the nod and became the county seat and largest city in Jackson County. The city of Phoenix was incorporated in 1910 when the area’s Orchard Boom was taking place.

Phoenix was and still is centrally located in being close to Medford. Residents lived in homes built over time and commuted to jobs that changed from lumbering, orchards, and agriculture to technology, medical, tourism, and more service oriented. It still retains the charm of those yesteryears.

MAKE YOUR COMMENTS AGAINST HB2020a, The Carbon Cap and Trade “Clean Jobs Bill” (mis-named, imo)  Here is sample verbiage for a good comment, because the public input is being fabricated supporting this bill. Here are all the state legislative email addresses in text form: Legislative Email Addresses 2019 Here is Mr. X’s Comment language, so feel free to copy and paste: This comment provides Public Input and notice to the State of Oregon. Your decisions cause great concern to “the people” as from all aspects and appearances the attempts at implementing laws that have clear violations of the laws of the United States and the State of Oregon. I will first refer you to “ORS 192.620 Policy. The Oregon form of government requires an informed public aware of the deliberations and decisions of governing bodies and the information upon which such decisions were made. It is the intent of ORS 192.610 to 192.690 that decisions of governing bodies be arrived at openly. [1973 c 172 1 }”. Official replies and responses that “concerns will be part of the public record” are deceptive and a clear violation of the protections granted all citizens by the Constitution of the United States as well as the Constitution of the State of Oregon. A review of information from Renew Oregon states that “700 people, from all 30 Senate districts attended to rally and meet with their elected officials.  Public hearings in Salem and six locations around the state yielded more than 700 people testifying, a majority in favor of cap-and-invest.” This information indicates the use of a “Consensus Process” that inherently falsifies the record and does not consider the true result of actual Public Input. The lack of Public notice and involvement, lead to a strong public perception of an appearance of impropriety. This is pointed out after discovery of drafts of legislation that have been submitted, approved, circulated and efforts undertaken to fast track these attempts, these actions combined with no protective response from any part of the legislative bodies is an unacceptable breach of your fiduciary duty to the people of the State of Oregon. The fact that a direction and attempts to punitively harm “the people” have already been made while “the people” were kept out of the Public Input Process and considerations of an unresolved potentially frivolous lawsuit (Juliana v. United States) put the interests of a fringe environmental mindset regarding a legally unproven theory of “Atmospheric Trust Litigation” is an abomination of The Public Trust Doctrine which has historic legal definitions, and restrictions, none of which allow for the punitive harms the legislature would inflict upon “the people”. The law mandates a Public Input Process that is well defined though willfully ignored by the Oregon Legislature. Instead a falsified public input process has been substituted to create a false history of public acceptance. Involvement by “stakeholders” and numerous NGO organizations that are financially supported by organizations outside our State is an unrealistic intrusion by a few overreaching into the lives of the entire population threatening granted rights that is in direct conflict of both Federal and State law. It can only be concluded that the entire process that has been used, constitutes a broad based scheme of artifice that does not give the actual consent of or allow the ability of “the people” of the State of Oregon to give legitimate public input. Any Consensus based Public Input Process involvement by third party beneficiaries or “ Stakeholders” and documented as “Consent” to proceed is hereby rejected. The falsified historical record of NGO organizations funded by national groups and wealthy individuals that provide undue influence upon the Public Input Process is also rejected as no true public consent has been given nor sought. This plan in its conception and further implementation constitute an unlawful infringement and harm besides having no lawful authority to proceed. The following passage from the beginning of Oregon Revised Statute 183.502 explains the actual illegal usage of any “Consensus Process” to make war on “the people” by attacking constitutionally protected granted rights. “ORS 183.502 Authority of agencies to use alternative means of dispute resolution; model rules; amendment of agreements and forms; agency alternative dispute resolution programs. (1) Unless otherwise prohibited by law,” The Oregon Administrative Procedures Act section 183.400 (4) (a) specifically addresses the invalidity of any rule by stating “(4) The court shall declare the rule invalid only if it finds that the rule: (a) Violates constitutional provisions;” Legislative considerations should not be based in “theory” and “themes”. The proponents of HB 2020a have an obvious bias and partisan leaning and in their efforts function under the guise that the unproven theory of modification of The Public Trust Doctrine gives the Legislature of Oregon control over the atmosphere. In the clearest statement that can be made, by any current interpretation, the Public Trust Doctrine does not give control over the atmosphere. As a point of issue the following must be considered. On what lawful principle is the Legislature of the State of Oregon considering any legislation that has to do with “theories “ and “themes”? As the public becomes more aware of these intrusions and responds in horror is absolute evidence of gross malfeasance or illustrative of a constitutional due process violation. There are in this time in history many arguments regarding “Climate Change”, many are frivolous in nature and unproven and thus as mentioned earlier are considered “theories” and “themes” and as such are an additional proof of an undue influence to legislatively advance an agenda of policy created by environmental extremists that will ultimately attack and harm the very foundation of society in the State of Oregon. All of this admittedly by its (HB 2020 and HB202a) creators is with no actual net benefit or effect on the environment, only punitive financial harms upon “the people”. In closing it is respectfully demanded that the bill HB 2020a not be considered further GET THOSE COMMENTS IN ASAP

7:10: Jim Simpson, author of  The Red-Green Axis 2.0: An Existential Threat to America and the World (Civilization Jihad Reader Series) Book Description – The Red-Green Axis is a collusion between the Democratic Party, American Communists, Socialists and other brands of “progressives”, i.e., the Red, and the forces of the Islamic jihad, the Green—so named because the color green carries much symbolism in Islam, and most Muslim nations feature green in flags, emblems, and other identifiers. Its collective goal is to alter and undermine our national character, traditions, and laws so much that it can overthrow our Constitutional republican form of government without firing a shot. The alliance allows each to take advantage of the tactics, strategies, and cultural features of the other, and mobilizes a vastly larger number of people. For example, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) now supports Black Lives Matter (BLM) and participates in its protests. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) also work with BLM, CAIR, and open borders groups.Immigration is one of the Red-Green Axis’s most effective tools. Under the banner of “compassion,” it advocates for open borders and endless waves of refugees, asylum seekers, and other third-world immigrants to stress government budgets at all levels, overburden communities with medical, language, crime, welfare, and other burdens, while rhetorically and sometimes physically attacking those who object, calling opponents “racists,” “bigots,” “xenophobes,” and the latest innovation, “Islamophobes.”This second edition of the Red-Green Axis delves deeply into the immigration/refugee resettlement issue to catalog not only the breadth and depth of the program and its supporters, but to expose the massive problems and cultural changes that have been created, I believe deliberately, as the key element in the Axis agenda to erase America as we know it. https://www.amazon.com/Red-Green-Axis-2-0-Existential-Civilization/dp/1070931403/ 7:35 Richard Marshall, president of the Siskiyou Water Users Association chats with Bill.

7:10 Outdoor report with Greg Roberts from RogueWeather.com 7:35 Graham Hancock is the author of “America Before – The Key to Earth’s Lost Civilizations. He also wrote the major international non-fiction bestsellers Magicians of the Gods, The Sign and the Seal, Fingerprints of the Gods, The Message of the Sphinx, and Heaven’s Mirror.

AMERICA BEFORE

The Key to Earth’s Lost Civilizations

by GRAHAM HANCOCK

Was an advanced civilization lost to history in the global cataclysm that ended the last Ice Age? New York Times bestselling author Graham Hancock has made it his life’s work to find out. In AMERICA BEFORE: The Key to Earth’s Lost Civilization (St. Martin’s Press; April 23, 2019; $29.99 hardcover) he draws on the latest archaeological and DNA evidence to bring his quest to a stunning conclusion. We’ve been taught that North and South America were empty of humans until around 13,000 years ago – amongst the last great landmasses on earth to have been settled by our ancestors. But new discoveries have radically reshaped this long-established picture with evidence that the Americas were first peopled more than 130,000 years ago – many tens of thousands of years before human settlements became established elsewhere. AMERICA BEFORE takes readers through Hancock’s investigative journey of the Americas and encounters with the scientists responsible for these recent extraordinary breakthroughs. Some of the locations within the United States include:
  • Southern California, where evidence has recently emerged that humans have been present in the Americas for ten times as long as previously thought.
  • Ohio, where Serpent Mound gazes at the setting sun on the summer solstice. When was this ‘marriage of heaven and earth’ first celebrated?
  • Illinois, where the great earthwork site of Cahokia displays scientifically precise astronomical and geodetic alignments.
  • Alabama, where a prehistoric religion almost identical to that of ancient Egypt was practiced at Moundville.
  • Washington, Nebraska, Minnesota, New York, the Carolinas and Arizona where there is overwhelming evidence of a cataclysm 12,800 years ago. The cataclysm was global, but its epicenter was in North America.
In AMERICA BEFORE, Hancock reveals that ancient “New World” cultures share a legacy of advanced scientific knowledge and sophisticated spiritual beliefs with supposedly unconnected “Old World” cultures. Raising the question, have archaeologists focused for too long only on the “Old World” in their search for the origins of civilization while failing to consider the revolutionary possibility that those origins might in fact be found in the “New World”? AMERICA BEFORE is full of amazing archaeological discoveries and profound implications for how we lead our lives today. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: GRAHAM HANCOCK is the author of the major international non-fiction bestsellers Magicians of the Gods, The Sign and the Seal, Fingerprints of the Gods, The Message of the Sphinx, and Heaven’s Mirror. His books have sold more than seven million copies worldwide and have been translated into thirty languages. His public lectures, radio and TV appearances, including two major TV series, Quest For The Lost Civilization and Flooded Kingdoms of the Ice Age, have put his ideas before audiences of millions. He has become recognized as an unconventional thinker who raises resonant questions about humanity’s past and about our present predicament.

6:35: Rick Manning, President of Americans for Limited Government, joins the show. It’s the Weekly Swamp Update. You can see more great information over at: DailyTorch.com 7:10: Greg Roberts, Mr. Outdoors himself from RogueWeather.com, calls in to bring to you, the Friday Outdoor Report. 7:35: Christine Drazan, State Representative (R-Canby), calls the show. Representative Drazan released the following statement in reaction to the recent Legislative Council opinion regarding the constitutional implications of the natural gas tax in HB 2020. “Any revenues from the taxation of natural gas in Oregon must be deposited into the Common School Fund and cannot be used to mitigate climate change. HB 2020 spends millions, but certain natural gas taxes are constitutionally protected. This money belongs in our classrooms.” “Cap and Trade will unconstitutionally divert money away from our children’s education, into the pet projects of unelected bureaucrats. We cannot let that happen,” The recently released Legislative Counsel opinion includes a requirement that the tax on natural gas not exceed 6% and that the tax on natural gas must abide by the dormant commerce clause, none of which is included in the language of HB 2020. These additional challenges to the funding and structure of HB 2020, come on the heels of the revelation that cap and trade will harm Oregon’s bond rating and in a matter of years cripple the Highway Trust Fund — effectively reversing recent bipartisan, bicameral legislation adopted to strengthen Oregon’s economy by funding a functional transportation system that efficiently moves people and goods. She concludes: “The most recent May 15 legislative opinion makes it clear that Oregon can’t just adopt California’s cap-and-trade scheme. Given what we now know, HB 2020 is not ready for adoption.

Talent

By Dennis Powers

The first settler credited with establishing roots in the Talent area was Jacob Wagner, who in the spring of 1852 filed a 160-acre donation claim along the banks of the creek that bears his name, Wagner Creek. The land was some five miles north of Ashland and near the present city of Talent. Wagner was successful in farming and raising stock; one year later, he built a log stockade known as “Fort Wagner.” He constructed the fort with the help of Yreka’s Captain Alden and his men, and this was a place of safety during the Rogue River Indian Wars of 1853 and 1855. The surrounding walls covered an acre, were two-feet thick and twelve-feet high, with portholes for rifle fire. A large “blockhouse” was built inside for the Wagner family, but this was the place of refuge during attacks. Once these conflicts ended, the settlements of Ashland and Jacksonville developed quicker than the smaller places as Phoenix and Talent. In turn, Jacob Wagner later sold most of his townsite area to Horace Root for $3,500 and moved to Ashland, where among other pursuits, he started up a bottling enterprise with Lithia Spring waters. A Tennessee carpenter by the name of Aaron P. (“A.P.”) Talent moved into the area in 1875 and in few years had purchased part of the original Wagner claim and adjoining lands that totaled 106 acres. He began to subdivide this into lots and blocks. Having foreseen the coming growth with the railroad’s approach, Talent by the early 1880s had opened a general store north of the old fort site (which was disintegrating from lack of use). As the area was quite suitable for growing fruits and vegetables, different structures and enterprises began to rise around his store, which in 1883 became the site of a new post office. After a short-term political appointment, A.P. Talent became the new postmaster, which position he held for seven years. When residents went there for their mail and purchases, it was commonplace they would head to “Talent’s” and the name stuck. This is despite that Wagner Creek encompassed a much wider area with more farms and ranches around the creek’s water table. Although the railroad came by Talent, it didn’t establish a station as in Central Point, Medford, Phoenix, and then Ashland. Talent was a stopping point, but its leaders were never able to secure a depot. Despite this, landowners as Horace Root, A.P. Talent, the Wagner Creek Baptist Church, and E.K. Anderson (for whom Anderson Creek is named) created the town of Talent by subdividing their lands, selling off lots, deeding streets, and recording a plat map in 1889. Talent was a beneficiary of the early 1900’s Orchard Boom and incorporated in 1910. Its growth was somewhat set back by a destructive fire one year later, but itlike Phoenixcontinued expanding, although experiencing the downturn of the Orchard Bust in the late-1910s. With the growth and selection of Medford as the county seat, coupled with the depression years, Talent lost employers and employment. After World War II and over the years, however, it transformed into a residential community due to its location and less-expensive housing versus Medford and Ashland. In June 2011, the new Camelot Theatre opened with the production of “Sweeney Todd” in the James Morrison Collier Theatre. With this, the town joined then with other Rogue Valley performing centers, from Ashland’s Oregon Shakespearean Festival to Medford’s Craterian, in providing top-quality artistic productionsbut in Talent. A prime landmark, it is rare to find such a theatre with its capabilities in a very small town with less than 7,000 residents.

Today we’ll be talking with Raynard about how there are sealed FBI audio tapes that allege that Martin Luther King Jr. had affairs with 40 women and watched while a friend raped a woman, a report claims. These tapes could tarnish Dr. King’s legacy as a beacon of goodness and hope for all. On Sunday, the London Times published an explosive story about records of FBI surveillance of Martin Luther King, Jr., that have hitherto been kept secret. They were discovered by David Garrow, a socialist historian whose biography of King titled Bearing the Cross won a Pulitzer prize in 1987. So far, the London Times story has not been picked up by many American news outlets. The New York Times, for example, doesn’t seem to have covered it, nor, as far as I can see, has the Associated Press.

Entrepreneurs are the leaders of our community—not the Jesse Jacksons and the Al Sharptons.  We are not aligned with any of the presidential campaigns.  Our goal is to work NOW to be able to deliver at least 15% of the Black vote to our eventual nominee next year. Republicans average 9% of the Black vote during presidential elections even if we do nothing (Romney got 6%, but that was an anomaly). As founder and chairman of BAFABF, I have traveled the country to meet with some of the top Black businessmen in America—Republican, Democrat, and Independent.

Should the electric vehicle subsidy be renewed, or allowed to die? We’ll discuss it. https://www.americancommitment.org/content/let-electric-vehicle-subsidies-die-schedule The electric vehicle subsidy should be ended.  Phil Kerpen contends that efforts to raise the cap are a cash grab that will force taxpayers to subsidize wealthy Californians for no presently valid reason.  Congress should let the subsidy phase out as scheduled. 7:10 State Senator Dennis Linthicum of Klamath Falls calls us Senate Republican Whip Dennis Linthicum, R-Klamath Falls, is the chief sponsor of Senate Joint Memorial 12, which calls on Congress to repeal the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986, or the Liability-Free Act, which states that “[no] vaccine manufacturer shall be liable in a civil action for damages arising from a vaccine-related injury or death associated with the administration of a vaccine after October 1, 1988, if the injury or death resulted from side effects that were unavoidable even though the vaccine was properly prepared and was accompanied by proper directions and warnings.” Linthicum released the following statement: “It is time for Congress to be on the right side of history and to repeal this disastrous law. While it may have been passed with good intentions, the vaccine industry and marketplace have changed dramatically over the last three decades. This blanket protection for pharmaceutical manufacturers is no longer necessary or prudent.” 8:10 Richard Marshall, president of the Siskiyou Water Users Association talks with Bill. The Trump Administration pulls support for Klamath Dam Removal, how might this affect their lawsuit to stop the removal?

Just click here. 8:10 Andrew Langer  President of The Institute For Liberty, and a contributor to The American Spectator, and Townhall.com talks with Bill today. Three environmental groups sued the federal government on Monday to block the renewal of a 10-year grazing permit for Oregon ranchers Dwight and Steven Hammond, The Oregonian reports. Western Watersheds Project, the Center for Biological Diversity and WildEarth Guardians filed suit against the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), arguing that renewing the Hammonds’ grazing permits violated federal regulations. The BLM and Interior secretary did not consider the Hammonds’ poor record, the environmental groups said according to The Oregonian. Dwight and his son Steven lost the grazing permit for their ranch in 2014. The Bureau of Land Management denied their application after the pair was convicted of arson in 2012, for which both served stints in prison and paid a fine of $400,000. President Donald Trump issued a full pardon of the Hammonds in July 2018, springing them from a prison sentence many saw as unfair for the crime. The ranchers were convicted under an anti-terrorism law that carried a minimum sentence of five years in prison. The fires the Hammonds set burned 140 acres of federal land. Federal Judge Michael Hogan cut their sentences shorter, ruling that forcing the Hammonds to serve out the five-year minimum qualified as “cruel and unusual.” After the Hammonds were released, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed Hogan’s decision, forcing the ranchers back into prison. More on the story – dailycaller.com/2019/05/14/trump-pardon-oregon-ranchers-lawsuit/ Since 2008, Andrew Langer has been President of the Institute for Liberty. IFL works on a variety of issues—promoting and protecting small business, linking trade and prosperity, tilting against the regulatory state. But at the organization’s core, and Andrew’s, is the desire to promote freedom and individual rights.  Andrew has been involved in free-market and limited-government causes for nearly 20 years, has testified before Congress nearly two dozen times, and spoke at the historic 912DC March. instituteforliberty.org And, you can see much more over at: IChooseLiberty.org On Facebook www.facebook.com/andrew.langer  www.facebook.com/consumerprivacynow Twitter – @Andrew_Langer
