Bill’s Guests for: Wednesday, March 14, 2018:
6:35: Danielle Vann, Award Winning author of “The Whizbang Machine,” series of young adult books talks with Bill, about the ostensible decline of literacy in the United States.
Forty-four per cent of our nation’s adults are reading and writing at a fourth grade level. What’s more, it’s even scarier nearly 20 per cent of high schoolers graduated last year without even knowing how to read.
But guess what—-the White House has released its proposed budget for 2019 that slashes federal funding for a vital tool in education— libraries and museums.
Danielle A. Vann, a Dallas-area crusader on behalf of reading, an award-winning novelist of young adult books and a former television personality, is on a mission to stop this campaign against literacy.
“Regardless of your politics, you have to know that an illiterate public is an anathema to our Democracy,” said Ms. Vann. “When it comes to our children, we need to storm the barricades against illiteracy.”
Ms. Vann is taking her message to the public, to educators, to school and state officials—anyone she can button-hole to lobby or reach with her public speaking activities and YouTube videos.
The cutback in funds for libraries and museums will, according to Ms. Vann’s research, greatly impact public libraries, public and charter schools, and public universities around the country.
The proposed Fiscal 2019 budget contains significant cuts to federal library funding as well as eliminating the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

SCHOOL PROTESTS WEDNESDAY – Who’s in Charge here?? (Bill’s Opinion)
The empty skulls pushing to skip school Wednesday to protest so-called “Gun Violence” are out of order. You have a perfect right to push your agenda and protest OUTSIDE OF SCHOOL HOURS. All you superintendents and school boards wringing hands over “balancing school disruption with rights” are derelict in your duties, displaying cowardice, and letting the inmates run the asylum. Would you be so quick to “Balance school disruption with rights” were the kids going out to preach “Abortion is Murder”? I doubt it.
There’s always been a time and place for the first amendment…I supported the BLM right to protest, just not on the job, as it’s not your time, it’s the employer’s and fan’s time. A student’s “job” is going to school, and from the looks of Oregon’s school rankings, they’re already not working very hard.

Bill’s Guests for: Friday, March 9, 2018:
6:20: Jason Hanson, former CIA agent, and author of the book: “Spy Secrets That Can Save Your Life,” talks with Bill.
Jason is here to talk about his new book out there, chock full of new stuff that you can use to further protect your family.
Former CIA Officer Jason Hanson is all too aware of the potential dangers of today’s world. A security specialist and successful contestant on ABC’s Shark Tank, Hanson has dedicated his life to helping everyday citizens defend themselves at his Spy Escape & Evasion school.
In SURVIVE LIKE A SPY: Real CIA Operatives Reveal How They Stay Safe in a Dangerous World and How You Can Too (TarcherPerigee, March 6, Hardcover & eBook), Hanson takes us deep into the world of espionage, revealing true stories and expert tactics from real CIA operatives who have worked dangerous missions all over the world.
Hanson’s mission is to help Americans live a safer, happier, more successful life. His book is meant to entertain, but also to help readers feel empowered and prepared, no matter where they live or what they do. The allure of the book is twofold: the real-life spy drama stories are exciting and entertaining to read, while the accompanying tactics and lessons at the end of each chapter are invaluable guides to keeping you and your family prepared and safe.
In clear, decisive steps, SURVIVE LIKE A SPY walks readers through potentially life-saving skills such as:
. How to survive a kidnapping
. The number one way to deal with a threatening individual
. How to improvise a weapon using ordinary, inexpensive items you already have at home
. The critical items you need when traveling in the age of terrorism
. How to create covert communications signals to protect your family
. What to do if you feel like someone is following you
. And much, much more.
In his first, New York Times bestselling book, Spy Secrets That Can Save Your Life, Hanson showed how the simple tactics he learned as a CIA Officer could help regular Americans lead safer and more secure lives. With eye-opening accounts of spy missions in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Russia, and Japan, SURVIVE LIKE A SPY not only reveals a fascinating glimpse into the lives of real-life spies, but also offers actionable tips to help everyday people stay safe in an increasingly volatile world.
8:10: Eric Peters, Automotive journalist and Libertarian thinker talks with Bill. So, virtual cars. Are they on the horizon? And, what will they be like, and what will the impact be?

COMRADE BROWN & A.G. SESSIONS (Bill’s quick take)
Comrade Jerry Brown and A.G. Sessions dust it up over immigration enforcement. Jerry is apparently hard at work turning the late great Golden State into a 3rd world nation….#1 in poverty.
Sessions has constitutional authority on his side…but still is a massive statist at heart: “There is no nullification. There is no secession. Federal law is the supreme law of the land. I would invite any doubters to go to Gettysburg, or to the tombstones of John C. Calhoun and Abraham Lincoln. This matter has been settled.”
This is standard swamp talk. “This matter has been settled” really means “Do what we say or we kill you”. (Remember this)
“Federal law is the supreme law of the land”…yes, but only when pursuant to the constitution. Otherwise, why would we need individual states? For example, the constitution specifically authorizes Congress to decide matters regarding immigration and naturalization. That’s the “supreme law of the land”, and Comrade Jerry is violating this.
As to “There is no Nullification”, c’mon, Oregon’s marijuana law clearly demonstrates that nullification is alive and well.
