    Donald Trump’s taken a major risk shifting his position on immigration. Is he caving in? Or is he cutting the best deal for America? Zmirak says this – while it's ethically correct every immigrant here illegally should be deported, the threat of mass deportation was always an empty one. If Trump were to try it, outraged liberals would flood the streets, protests, etc. Trump should cut a deal, insisting the price of extending mercy to 11 million illegals starts with building a wall and securing our southern border. John and Bill will discuss it.

    BILL’S GUESTS FOR 8-25-2016 CONSPIRACY THEORY THURSDAY:

    6:35: Dan Gainor, Vice President of Business at the Media Research Center, joins the show.

    On August 13th, a group under the name “DCLeaks” released thousands of documents from George Soros’ “Open Society Foundations” exposing the liberal billionaire’s attempts to influence everything from Supreme Court Justices to European elections.

    According to the Media Research Center, news networks and print media ignored the major leak which, in one document, described OSF as “in the business of channeling money into other countries for political purposes.”

    When surveying online and print publications, Investor’s Business Daily“couldn’t find a single story on The New York Times, CNN, Washington Post, CBS News, or other major news sites that even noted the existence of leaked documents, let alone reported on what’s in them”

    Read the full story on newsbusters.org.

    7:10: Michael Miller, director of the award-winning documentary Poverty Inc, chats with Bill. Is there big money in keeping poor people poor? Bill and Michael will chat about it.

    The global poor are excluded from institutions of justice that would enable them to create prosperity in their communities, says Poverty, Inc. movie director Michael Miller, writing at The Stream.

     The usual immediate reaction is to send money and goods overseas or to focus on redistribution policies aimed at reducing global inequality. But what aid recipients really need is: Access to courts, title to land and the ability to register a business.

     On the other side, poorer countries need to back away from populist rhetoric and populist policy that distracts from the real issue – a country can’t blame another outside force for its own problems.

     Mr. Miller directed the award-winning documentary Poverty, Inc. that reveals how fighting poverty has become big business, and asks but who profits the most? Poverty, Inc. is featured on Netflix and available on DVD.

    7:35: Medford Police Lt. Mike Budreau returns to the show, for this week’s Crimestoppers case.

    Ted Adams: Comic Books and More

    By Dennis Powers

    Ted Adams grew up in Grants Pass as teenager and graduated from Southern Oregon University (then known as Southern Oregon State College) in 1990. He worked at the SOU Bookstore in gaining his education and later received an MBA from Notre Dame. His father, Brady Adams, had moved the family to Grants Pass in 1972 to work as a loan officer and later became president of Evergreen Federal Bank in the mid-1980s. Brady--a Republican known for keeping a tight rein on budgets--served eight years in the Oregon Legislature and was president of the Oregon Senate for the 1997 and 1999 sessions. When he wasn’t involved in politics, he was working to improve downtown Grants Pass and Josephine County, not to mention working on 20 local nonprofit boards over time. He died at age 70 in 2015.

    Ted inherited his father’s work ethic and also knew from an early age that he wanted to be a business owner. After his education, his passion for comic books took over, and Ted worked for different comic book publishing companies. In 1999, Ted founded IDW (standing for “Idea + Design Works”) with three others in San Diego. The company was originally envisioned as a creative services business and only tried comic book publishing as a “gamble” a couple of years later. Adams currently serves as the company’s CEO and Publisher.  

    IDW began doing art and graphic design for entertainment companies, all on a work-for-hire basis. The four who started the business had all worked at WildStorm Productions. When DC Comics (comics such as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, etc.) bought WildStorm, it didn't have interest in its creative service business and turned this over to them. Without the usual start-up hurdles, IDW was making money before it opened its first office.

    IDW was making enough money that the group decided to gamble once a year on a new business. After trying a pilot for a failed TV show, producing an art book, and then “30 Days of Night” (a 3-issue horror-vampire comic book miniseries, later made into a movie by Sony), it had their first hit comic book with “CSI”. This story is about an elite team of police forensic-evidence investigating experts who worked their cases in Las Vegas--and became the 7th longest running series on TV. No one thought about this as a comic book: that is, until IDW came along and published the serial comic books in 2003, after the TV series had been running for three years.  

    IDW Publishing now is one of the top four U.S. comic book publishers, and the #1 supplier of licensed comic books. Over 80 IDW titles have appeared on The New York Times Best Sellers list. In fiscal-year 2015 alone, IDW published over 500 unique comic book titles and over 250 graphic novels. (While a comic book tells a story over many issues, graphic novels have their storylines wrapped up in one or two books; graphic novels are much longer and tend to be more complex.)

    IDW publishes some of the most popular titles in the industry, including: Hasbro’s “Transformers”, “G.I. Joe”, and “My Little Pony”; Paramount/CBS’s “Star Trek”; Nickelodeon’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”; Toho’s Godzilla”; Twentieth Century Fox’s “The X-Files”; Sony’s “Ghostbusters”; multiple monthly Disney titles; and many more. It also publishes classic comic reprints, but concentrates in taking existing entertainment brands and turning them into comic books--not competing with the likes of Marvel’s superhero comics.

    Ted’s talent is his ability to bring in the best talented artists and writers, and then work with them for success. His team’s comic books have evolved into multiple Eisner awards (the Oscars for the comic world). In 2007, New Jersey-based telecommunications company IDT purchased a “major interest” in IDW. The large capital backing allowed IDW to reach out in different ways. (IDT is a global provider of domestic and international calling services, voice and data conferencing options, and prepaid calling cards).

    Ted Adams: “I think as an entrepreneur, and as somebody who publishes 70 books a month, that we have misses all the time. I try not to spend a lot of time thinking about those, other than I try to figure out: What did we do wrong? What could we have done better? Why didn't the market respond to this? But I don't sit at my desk and agonize and bash my forehead. But there have been lots of misses over the years. (But) we've published many, many thousands of comics and books.”  

    IDW Entertainment began in 2013 to fund, develop, and produce television series based on IDW books. IDW projects in development include “Winterworld” (earth turned into an “icy hell”), “V-Wars”, and “Dirk Gently” (BBC’s holistic detective series); theatrical film projects in development include “Zombies vs. Robots.” Its TV series “Wynonna Earp” currently airs on the SyFy (once named, “Sci-Fi”) channel.

    In 2015, IDW acquired Top Shelf Productions, an award-winning publisher of graphic novels that includes the comic-book adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson’s “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas”—and recently released. It is a very successful entertainment-oriented company with spin-offs in merchandise, games, and other products—and Ted Adams is a prime reason for its success.

    8:35: Lisa McClease Kelly from the Greater Grants Pass Rotary joins Bill in studio, along with Nelson Mailor, President of the Grants Pass Rotary club. We discuss awards given out at a district conference, and how you're invited to learn more about Rotary and to have dinner with Rotary International director Brad Howard...this is happening WEDNESDAY 6pm at the Taprock Event Center, 940 S.E. 7th Street in Grants Pass. $20 per person, call Nelson to register at 541-244-2609.

    JUST SAY NO

    Not sure what the County Commission is thinking...sending yet another tax-funded benefit out for voter approval. If approved, the spouses of firefighters, police, and several other law enforcement types who die in the line of duty would receive a big exemption from paying property taxes. To this I would say no, not out of lack of sympathy for families of the fallen, but for the fact it is not needed.

    Public employee agreements are already VERY generous, especially when compared to the stressed private sector. For example, here's the Medford Police package:

    "SALARY: $4,311.50 to $5,721.17 per month (Non-probationary officers receive up to an additional 10% differential for college credits and DPSST certifications.)
    Benefits: City provided insurances available upon completion of designated waiting periods: Full-family medical, dental and vision (employee currently pays $95.14 monthly for family coverage for a $500 deductible plan; no premium contribution if selecting a $1,500 deductible plan); employee long-term disability and $50,000 term life; 1.2% of gross salary + $100 per month contributed by the city to employee’s Medical Savings Account. Ten days vacation, twelve paid holidays, and twelve days sick leave accrued per year. Eligible for employer paid PERS/OPSRP after six months, unless applicant is already an Oregon PERS/OPSRP member."

    Note how there is already a built-in life insurance benefit, and responsible officers probably purchase additional insurance. And most of us could only dream of no-cost, or $95 per month full family coverage healthcare.

    If we believe a fallen family needs more help, the community could, and WOULD step up to contribute. This is not needed.


    BILL’S GUESTS FOR 8-18-2016: CONPIRACY THEORY THURSDAY:

    6:35: Eric Peters, Libertarian car guy of EPAutos.com, joins the show. At a demo in paris for the Tesla Model S, the car caught fire, and burned to the ground, and despite the presence of the media, not one word was reported on it. Eric and Bill will discuss it.

    7:10: Burgess Owens, former NFL Super Bowl Champion, for the New York Giants and Oakland Raiders, and author of the book: “Liberalism: Or, How To Turn Good Men Into Whiners, Weenies and Wimps,” joins the show.

    Burgess Owens condemns the recent murders of police, emphasizing the need for our nation to have an honest dialogue about the seeds of our present racial divide. Owens, author of the new book Liberalism: or How to Turn Good men into Whiners Weenies and Wimps, says that as Toto pulled back the curtain to expose the deception of the Wizard of Oz, its time we do the same for two of America’s most influential voices to Urban Black America, the NAACP and BET (Black Entertainment TV). Few Americas are aware of the Wizard that stood behind the curtains in the formation of the NAACP in 1910. They were 21 wealthy, White Founders/ Board Members, comprised of a collection of Socialist, Marxist, eugenicist promoting and atheist Democrats. This “Black Branded” White organization was the antithesis of Martin Luther Sr.’s community of Patriotic Christians, who within their segregated communities were competitive, education seeking, Capitalist and would eventually lead our nation in the meteoric rise of its 1950’s and 60’s Middle Class.

    Southern Oregon’s Bigfoot

    By Dennis Powers

    From Grants Pass and Ashland to Cave Junction and Prospect, the sightings of Bigfoot, otherwise known as Sasquatch, have been numerous over the years; state and federal parks are also noteworthy as to these encounters, such as around Crater Lake or the Oregon Caves. Given the widespread, thick forests and remote areas in Southern Oregon, it isn’t too much of a stretch to see that our area has more than its share of these sightings.

    Bigfoot is defined in most dictionaries, as a “very large, hairy, humanoid creature reputed to inhabit wilderness areas of the U.S. and Canada, especially in the Pacific Northwest.” These human-like beings are believed to be 8-foot-plus in height, primate-like, and the surviving descendants of a species named Gigantopithecus, a tall, ape-like creature from the Pleistocene epoch (a long period that ended 11,700 years ago.)  

    With the numerous sightings in Jackson and Josephine counties, it is difficult to pick the best ones, as all are interesting and certainly important to whoever’s making the report. Crater Lake and the Oregon Caves are the site of well-evidenced ones. In 1976, the Chief Park Naturalist observed a Sasquatch-like creature, for example, that was crossing the South Road at dusk. Two years later, two park rangers reported seeing “something large in the forest with a foul odor” that threw a pinecone at them.

    If having reports from rangers is doubtful, then the experiences of a Grants Pass clinical psychologist in 2000 at the Oregon Caves is worthy. Matthew Johnson was on a summer walk on the Big Tree Loop Trail, when he left his wife and children to “answer nature’s call.” He previously had heard strange “whoa, whoaa, whoaa” sounds and smelled a skunk-like stench.

    While off the trail, the 6-foot/9-inch, 300-pound man had the scare of his life. Seeing movement to one side, Johnson turned to watch a Bigfoot--8-foot-tall, hairy, huge, and quite real to him--who then disappeared back into the brush. The psychologist ran to his family and quickly herded them back to the caves. A long-time park ranger at the Oregon Caves accompanied Johnson the next day to investigate the site. Although the ranger didn’t believe in Sasquatch, he said that without any question, Johnson had not made up the story.

    Matthew Johnson was so taken by his experience, he told about this on television and through newspapers around the country. He established the Southern Oregon Bigfoot Society (“SOBS”) so that others could join him in finding the creature. This organization put together different expeditions into the forests near Grants Pass. The SOHS has reported discovering hair samples, hand prints, footprints, and teeth imprints with a 3-1/2 inch gap between them. The group states they have come across boulders tossed in a road’s middle that were too heavy for a man to lift, along with trees broken off ten-feet high with limbs that were 1/2-foot in diameter.

    These searches are not isolated occurrences. In the 1970s, three men built a Bigfoot trap west of Applegate Lake. Led by reports that an old miner had found 18-inch human-like tracks (indicating a 6-foot stride) in his garden near the upper reaches of the Applegate River, Ron Olson and two others decided to build a trap near the location. The constructed wooden box was 10-feet by 10-feet and built of 2-inch thick planks. A metal grate was the trap door and to be triggered by a Bigfoot reaching for a deer or rabbit carcass hung at the rear.

    Built by special forestry permit, this cage is most likely the only official Bigfoot trap in the world. Located 1/2 mile west of Applegate Lake on the Collings Mountain Trail, telephone poles anchor it to the ground. Although the structure is in disrepair owing to the elements, it is a testimonial to the belief that such creatures do exist.

    Although the arguments continue as to whether Sasquatch is a fact or only a myth, even some academics and anthropologists have written books and articles supporting its reality. Even so, your belief might depend on whether you are reading this article in a home study or camping out in the wilderness at night.

    WHY ARE "THEY" SO SCARED?

    Given the media pants-wetting hysteria over Donald's 2nd A non-threat to the hildabeast, I find it interesting that few ask what should be done if politicians actually push their way, as Hillary calls for, to Australian style forced confiscations and buybacks and gun bans. Are free men and women supposed to "write their congressman" and silently comply? That's why the globalists and their bastard minions whiz in their drawers over the 2nd amendment. It's a free people's last resort to say NO! And the globalists and statists don't want ANYONE, EVER, to be able to say (and enforce) NO!
