Rural Oregon Responds to White Supremacy

“    …and here’s why they cannot penetrate with their hate in Grant County; I see that the wonderful forest men and women, and loggers, the farmers, the educators, the religious community, the business community, labor, Republicans, Democrats, Independents, what you’ve all done… is you’ve spoken as one voice and there is no way that hate can penetrate that kind of unity and you will win. “

– Tony Stewart, Professor of Political Science

 

On February 26th, 2010, the residents of Grant County, Oregon turned out in force to send a message to a white supremacist group, Stay out.

The people of Grant County came together, they united as one voice and they won. Hate is not welcome in Grant County.

 

Grant County, Oregon, is a small rural community  located in Eastern Oregon –

74% Republican | 17% Democrat

Population 7158 | 94.5% White

Median Household Income $38,046

16% in poverty

 

I was one of the 375 people that packed the hall that morning, approximately 100 more people were turned away at the door because of fire code restrictions, about 300 more watched a live stream on the internet.

Sitting next to a couple of local residents I asked them how they felt about the white supremacist group that was looking to relocate their headquarters in John Day…

 

 

Speakers Norman Gissel, Attorney (Coeur d’Alene) and Tony Stewart, Civil Rights Activist (Coeur d’Alene), offered encouragement and advice. The pair have battled neo-Nazi groups for 29 years and helped win a landmark judgment in 2000 against Idaho’s original Aryan Nations, leading to the group’s downfall.

‘I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.’

Debriefing the President: The Interrogation of Saddam Hussein

“When I started talking to him, he gave me the same look he had on a book that had sat on my desk for years. Surreal doesn’t come close.”

 

NixonJohn Nixon, former CIA Senior Analyst & author of “Debriefing the President: The Interrogation of Saddam Hussein”, joins me to talk about his prolonged interrogation of Saddam Hussein after his capture in 2003.

 

John’s up close and personal interrogation of Saddam Hussein was both fascinating and disturbing. What John encountered upon debriefing the President was even more distressing.

Hollywood Medium with Tyler Henry – Season Two 8pm ET/PT on E!

TylerHenryHollywood Medium with Tyler Henry – the breakout his series premiered in early 2016 as E!’s most watched unscripted series launch in three years with total viewer, excluding spin offs – has returned for season 2 on E!.

If you haven’t watched the show, you are missing out!  Tyler, only 20 yrs young, meets with celebrities to deliver readings.  Tyler has no idea who he’s reading until the celebrity opens the door, and even then he very seldom recognizes the celebrity.

 

Some celebs are believers and open to the reading and others are skeptical and very reluctant to the experience (Boy George!!).

Needless to say,  Tyler is AH-mazing!

Tyler recognizes that his passion, calling and life purpose is to bring clarity and closure to those he is privileged to read. I, myself, am a believer and willingly admit that I have submitted my request for a private reading, when it happens I’ll share my experience here!

 

It was such a please to talk with Tyler —
