When actor and noted liberal activist Alec Baldwin accidentally shot and killed the cinematographer and injured the director of a low-budget western he was producing, the questions immediately began: How did an apparent live round get inside the gun? Were safety protocols ignored? How experienced were the gun wranglers? Now, he's begun speaking out about the incident, and is insisting that the tragedy wasn’t his fault, even though the gun was in his hands, loaded by a crew he hired on a production he was bankrolling. Actor Adam Baldwin (an extremely distant but negligible relation) has a reputation for playing memorable tough guys in action-oriented roles, including Jayne Cobb in the TV series Firefly & its theatrical sequel Serenity, Animal Mother in Stanley Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket, Casey in the hit action-comedy series Chuck, and other supporting roles in films such as Predator 2, Wyatt Earp, Independence Day and The Patriot. It should come as no surprise that he’s got a lot of experience with using firearms on set, and has worked closely with the armorers and propmasters whose job it is to keep actors and crew safe. Adam joins the program to talk about his experiences using firearms on film & TV productions, and why he feels Alec Baldwin is so desperate to deflect blame for his own reckless actions.

Andy Ngô has been wading deep in the world of ANTIFA and its kin ever since he found himself witnessing the assault on Mike Strickland in 2016. After testifying on behalf of Strickland at his trial, he became a popular voice documenting Portland's menagerie of leftist thugs. And, unfortunately, he found himself a target of their ire, culminating in a 2019 assault that left him hospitalized with a brain bleed. Ngô joins the program to talk about his new book Unmasked: Inside Antifa’s Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy. From its origins to its mission to its funding, the book examines the black bloc group's organizational structure, how it operates, and why.

Robert Barnes, appellate attorney for Mike Strickland and part of Donald's Trumps electoral legal team, joins the show to talk about the chaos at the Capitol on January 6. Who was really responsible, and what was the point? How will it affect Trump's legacy, and did it undermine the legitimate concerns about problems with how the 2020 elections were managed?

On January 6, 2021, an historic and disturbing chapter in US history unfolded in Washington, DC. As Congress gathered to certify the Electoral College ballots and certify Joe Biden as the President-elect, hundreds of Trump supporters forced their way into the Capitol, smashing windows and furniture, looting Congressional offices, swarming the Senate chamber and assaulting Capitol police, all in an apparent attempt to disrupt the vote certification. When the dust had settled, 4 people had lost their lives, including a 14-year US Air Force vet from San Diego who had apparently been shot by a protective detail while trying to crawl past a makeshift security barricade. Notorious conservative street artist SABO was on the ground as the mayhem began, and speaks from the street about what he observed.

In March of 2015, Mike Strickland and his friend Chris Cochran met with Academy Award- and Emmy-nominated documentary filmmaker Skye Fitzgerald to discuss concerns over Cochran's participation in a documentary Fitzgerald was making. It started with civil discussion; it ended with Strickland in the hospital with a severely broken arm and Fitzgerald fleeing the scene with two of Strickland's cameras that he'd stolen. It was caught on tape, it was witnessed by multiple people...and the Multnomah County DA still refused to file charges. Listen to the story on today's edition of ANTIFA Versus Mike Strickland. Plus...time is running out on the Trump campaign's chances to prove election fraud in several important states. Oregon will jail and/or fine you for having too big a Thanksgiving dinner, but won't keep ANTIFA rioters behind bars.

In part 3 of our ongoing series on Mike Strickland, the original victim of ANTIFA, we examine the man who caused the entire incident: Benjamin Kerensa, a Portland-based computer programmer, wannabe hacker, community activist, and convicted bomb hoaxer. We also take a look at the incident through the lens of well-known Portland activist Mike "Bluehair," who captured much of the incident and its aftermath on video and who has since defended Strickland's actions, even while disagreeing with his politics. Plus, a post(?)-mortem of Tuesday's election in which Republicans not only likely retained the Senate but gained net seats in the House, even while a Trump victory looks increasingly unlikely thanks to apparent shenanigans in Arizona, Michigan, Pennsylvania and - most shockingly - at the Fox News studios...an election-day boondoggle so embarrassingly bad that some right-wing Tweeters are referring to it as a "third-world s***show." And could demons be responsible for ANTIFA's antics? Some priests think so!

In this second installment of the story of Portland amateur journalist Mike Strickland, we hear from prominent members of Portland's left-wing activist community. And what they say about Strickland's treatment and the actions that led to his arrest may surprise you, as will their remarks about the motivations of some members of the protest crowd. We also learn about the actions taken by prosecutors in his case, as well as by the media, and the shocking turn of events in the courtroom after his initial charge. Plus, in the news segment, we'll talk about next week's election and some of the threats and intimidation tactics by ANTIFA being leveraged against local election operations, as well as the strange "accommodations" being made to Pennsylvania's voters...could it be setting the stage for massive voter fraud?

On July 7, 2016, vlogger and independent political reporter Mike Strickland was attending the Don’t Shoot Portland protest event. The filmmaker had gained a reputation for showing the world the worst of radical leftism, including the black bloc protesters and socialist extremists common in the northwest. When he showed up at the protest that day, he had no idea that a conspiracy had been hatched. He was assaulted repeatedly by members of a newly-minted extremist organization...ANTIFA. He drew his legally-carried Glock 26 handgun and leveled it at the attackers, frightening them off without firing a shot. But while he managed to escape the encounter with a few cuts & bruises, his troubles were just beginning. He was arrested on the scene and charged with nearly two dozen crimes. Here, now, is the start of a multi-part series examining the case, and how the justice system failed a man who insists he was merely trying to protect himself. PLUS...Hunter Biden’s laptop, Jeffrey Toobin’s Zoom debacle, and Facebook’s censoring of the Babylon Bee!

Weapon instructor & US Marine veteran John Carughi was working as hired security for a local news station in Seattle in March of 2020 during civil unrest related to Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA protests. Amid the chaos, he spotted two of the black bloc agitators loot rifles from a disabled police vehicle. In an act of heroism that was caught live by TV cameras and went viral, he disarmed the goons and likely saved many people from injury or worse. He joins the program today to talk about the incident, his experiences as part of riot security details, rules of engagement, his thoughts on the Kyle Rittenhouse case and more.
