With a push from Joe Biden and several Democrat states that people be tracked and marked as vaccinated, a lot of people are rightfully concerned about big brother's overreach. But if vaccine passports are required, would they actually accomplish what they are supposed to?
To find out, Lars spoke with Dr. Henry Miller, a physician, a molecular biologist and Senior Fellow at the Pacific Research Institute, who's widely published in both scholarly journals and the popular press and the owner of HenryMillerMD.org.
A war on free speech has erupted in our society.
The latest battlefield, Oregon’s State Capital.
Yesterday, conservatives planned a “Freedom Rally” in Salem. They have good reason. State lawmakers have done nothing to rein in dictatorial powers of Governor Kate Brown with her plans for PERMANENT OSHA mask rules. Lawmakers plan to raise taxes and disarm the law abiding.
The Freedom Rally never happened because anti free speech terrorists blocked it.
Here’s the way Salem police described it.
“100 individuals wearing black clothing and ballistic vests and carrying firearms, bats, skateboards, umbrellas, shields and gas masks arrived on the capitol mall grounds. Some individuals from the group carried Youth Liberation Front flags, a group known to espouse leftwing ideologies.”
The group attacked those coming to the freedom rally.
With another border crisis and flood of illegal aliens trying to get into the country, and a president doing his best to let them all in without restriction, the places that tend to suffer worst are the areas along the border.
To talk about how hard it is to keep the peace in an area where thousands of people cross into the country illegally, Lars spoke with sheriff A.J. "Andy" Louderback, the sheriff of Jackson County Texas who deals with this issue daily.
Shootings in Portland have more than doubled in a single year, and homicide under Feckless Mayor Ted Wheeler have more than tripled in three years.
So it’s not surprising when tens of millions of Americans who had never owned a gun, bought one in the past year...4 million in the month of January alone.
And what do your so-called “representatives” at the legislature do?
The Senate passes SB 554 which turns people like me and more than a quarter of a million Oregonians into criminals.
It allows every level of government...city, county, state, school districts...to pass their own bans on concealed carry.
Sure, you COULD still carry concealed as I do every day...but if you pull up in front of your kid’s school, or go to the library, or walk across a college campus or through a public park...BANG!
You’re a criminal...
According to a recent study summers in the Northern Hemisphere could last nearly six months by the year 2100 if global warming continues.
Scientists say the longer, summer streaks and the shrinking of the three other seasons could impact our health, agriculture and the environment.
But is that really the case, or is it another example of scientists using data to fit their politics?
To discuss this, Lars spoke with Chuck Weise, meteorologist and climate expert to find out how much of this is reality?
With most of the country looking to get vaccinated by the middle of summer, that means most schools should be open this fall, but how can we reopen safely when some folks are refusing to take the vaccine?
To discuss this further, Lars spoke with Lance Izumi, who is an education policy expert at the Pacific Research Institute and co-author of the new book “A Kite in a Hurricane No More: The Journey of One Young Woman Who Overcame Learning Disabilities through Science and Educational Choice''.
Every summer, wildfires in the Northwest fill the air with choking smoke and send billions of dollars worth of timber up in flames.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
20 years ago I began advocating for what’s now called the “global supertanker”, a 747 fitted out as the single biggest fire fighting tool on planet earth and there’s only one like it.
The late Del Smith of Evergreen Aviation spent 55 million of his own money making it fly and getting it certified by all the right agencies.
It did a demonstration this week in Moses Lake Washington. Oregon never put the plane under contract even when it was used successfully on major California fires in the last few years.
I hope Washington state authorities are smarter...and sign it up for service this spring and summer.
Or we could let the forests burn.
The domestic terror group ANTIFA loves to claim they are breaking windows and robbing small businesses and immigrant owned stores on behalf of "the little guy", but according to some recent reporting, they are a misogynistic group of white men, trampling over women and anyone else that doesn't join their pseudo-cult.
To discuss this more, Lars spoke with Theresa Griffin Kennedy, an author, poet and writer who points out that ANTIFA is as damaging to women as they are to any political ideologies they don't agree with.
Former Washington state high school football coach Joe Kennedy lost his job more than five years ago for silently praying on the field after each game.
The coach from Bremerton prayed to himself, quietly at the end of football games, but the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit again held that the Bremerton School District can ban former coach Joe Kennedy from praying on the field after football games, and thus fire him legally.
But this isn't the last play for coach Kennedy according to Mike Berry, the attorney with the legal group First Liberty who is handling the case. Lars spoke with him to find out more.
40 million people in America own recreational vehicles. Tina and I have had one in years gone by.
Owning one comes with responsibilities...you have to license it, you have to register it and you have to deal with the “black water”. That’s the stuff in an RV’s tank that comes from the toilet.
Unless you’re one of Portland’s so called “homeless”.
Police have been told to let a few thousand people living in RVs parked on public streets break all the rules.
Not licensed?...not an issue.
Parked illegally?...you won’t be towed.
Liability insurance...are you kidding?
Septic tank is full? Taxpaying citizens will take care of that.
When someone comes on your property without your permission, you can call the cops, and have them arrested for trespassing. Farmers however don't have that luxury when it comes to people from a union. Union workers have the ability to traipse all over a farmers land regardless of if the farmer or even the workers want them there or not.
To talk about this issue and what's being done to stop it, Lars spoke with Pacific Legal Foundation attorney, Joshua Thompson who represents Cedar Point Nursery and Fowler Packing Company, two California growers that produce fruit for millions of Americans and that deal with unions trespassing on their land frequently.
The world we live in is one where the slightest online misstep, even one that is misinterpreted, or from a tweet or post from a decade ago can mean the end of your career. So has America's "cancel culture" demanded that anyone in the public eye become perfect or else risk feeling the wrath of the trolls and keyboard cowboys?
To discuss this further, Lars spoke with former CIA Analyst and Member of Congress Bill Barr.
With unilateral changes to Oregon's legislature letting juvenile murderers out of jail and probation after only a few short years, and the removal of jail time for drug offenders, Oregon is becoming a state without laws or consequences.
Now some folks want to repeal Measure 11, the mandatory sentencing law that ensures soft-on-crime judges don't let off criminals convicted of the most heinous crimes with a slap on the wrist.
To discuss this further, Lars spoke with former District Attorney, Joshua Marquis to find out what the real impact of repealing Measure 11 would mean for Oregon's justice system.
According to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, Iran intervened in the 2020 election to “undercut” President Trump’s campaign.
Yet another US election was interfered with by foreign powers, but who were they trying to get into the White House, and why?
To discuss this, Lars spoke with Hans Von Spakovsky, a Senior legal fellow in The Heritage Foundation, who was appointed to the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity by President Trump, and the manager of Election Law Reform Initiative.
It’s bad enough when the major networks and the daily dead fishwrapper’s push false stories to fuel a political agenda.
Now, we have elected officials doing it too
Case in point, a letter of condemnation from the entire Portland city council last night about murders in Atlanta.
The letter says “We condemn acts of hate and bias-fueled incidents”, pointing out that six of the eight people murdered were Asian Americans. It ignores the other two white skinned victims.
Problem is, there’s no evidence at this point that the murders were racially motivated.
It seems politically advantageous for Mayor Ted Wheeler and the council to condemn phantom racial bias for the murders...because it drives the narrative that America is under threat from mythical “white supremacists”.
Much less convenient for Feckless Ted to condemn sex addiction...
In his new book "Bears Want To Kill You: The Authoritative Guide To Survival In The War Between Man And Bear" Ethan Nicolle the Creative Director for the hilarious satire news website The Babylon Bee gives you the information you need in order to survive this grizzly invasion!
Lars invited Ethan on the show to talk about his new book, and work with the Bee.
Oregon has a bad history.
Over the last 25 years, citizens have voted multiple times to punish criminals who hurt people.
At the same time, elected elites voted multiple times to protect the criminals at the expense of victims.
Two years ago, lawmakers succeeded in forbidding most punishment of juveniles for adult crimes like killing someone.
Last July, Kyle Snook, just short of 18, went to bonfire party at a rock pit where he drank, smoked pot, got belligerent, refused to leave and then drove his car multiple times over a crowd of people.
Robert Betschart died...Kaylee Nordstrom was crushed by the car and lived, but will never walk right again. Four others were badly hurt.
Later this month, Snook gets his sentence...but he’s guaranteed to spend no more than six years in youth custody...and he could do a whole lot less.
Kristin (Kris) Schumacher, who's brother was murdered, and Deena Nordstrom, who’s daughter Kaylee were severely injured when Kyle Snook allegedly drove through a crowd of people.
Since Snook was a legally a minor at the time, due to the fact he was 2.5 months shy of his 18th birthday he is being charged as a juvenile now, and if he's found guilty, the maximum sentence he can receive under Oregon's new ridiculous rules will see him released in just a few short years on his 25th birthday.
Snook faces charges of second-degree murder, first-degree manslaughter, vehicular assault, driving while under the influence and reckless driving.
