Behind the Curtain: Inside the Network of Progressive Billionaires and Their Campaign to Undermine Democracy
By Jeff Reynolds

Behind the Curtain takes a look where the Leftist billionaire’s club doesn’t want you to go—into the world of dark money and influence that has only one goal: to stop conservatives and Donald Trump by any means necessary.

Conclusion of Michael Yon Interview, and Sean Kennedy on Liberal Prosecutors Appeasing the Rioters: Ep. 28
This podcast is a continuation of what I started in Episode 27, a series of podcasts that are the most important I’ve ever done. I am talking with a bunch of sources about the riots in our city streets, the insurrection that is taking place, and how widespread the violence could get in the leadup and aftermath of the coming election. My first interview this week is the conclusion of my talk with Michael Yon. In Episode 27, we talked about why he decided to come to Portland for the two month period before and after Election Day 2020. He’s here to determine how close the United States is to insurrection, splitting apart, or even civil war. In the conclusion, we talk about his time in Europe in former Soviet bloc marxist countries, his time talking to the Proud Boys and other right wing groups to see if they’re really white supremacists, and what he’s learned so far about antifa’s plans to disrupt the election in Portland and nationally. Michael Yon has done extensive writing for many years on armed conflicts around the world, and published several books. You can follow his work at www.Patreon.com/MichaelYon, on Facebook at www.facebook.com/MichaelYonFanPage, or on Twitter at www.twitter.com/Michael_Yon. My second interview this week is with Sean Kennedy, a visiting fellow at the Maryland Public Policy Institute. Sean has extensively studied crime rates in comparison to criminal justice efforts, and has lots of things to say about liberal appeasement of criminal activity. The catch and release policies for rioters have done a lot to aid and enhance the violence we see in America’s city streets. Not surprisingly, Portland’s District Attorney, Soros-backed and antifa-aligned Mike Schmidt makes for an interesting conversation. Sean’s work can be found at mdpolicy.org.

It’s called Behind the Curtain: Inside the Network of Progressive Billionaires and their Campaign to Undermine Democracy. It’s an examination of the dark money on the left that continues to fuel the worst of the swamp creatures in Washington DC. There’s a real appetite out there for folks to learn about who’s pulling the strings on the left, and what their ultimate goals are. I’ve done several speaking engagements, and I’m looking for more.

Go to anchor.fm/behindthecurtain and click on the big ol Support Button right at the top of the page. This podcast and the next couple to follow will be the most important I’ve ever done. I am talking with a bunch of sources about the riots in our city streets, the insurrection that is taking place, and how widespread the violence could get in the leadup and aftermath of the coming election. My first interview this week is with Michael Yon. Michael came to Portland in September with the plan to stay here through Election Day and its aftermath. Michael lives in Thailand, and had hoped to go to Taiwan to cover the unrest there as China becomes ever more aggressive. But when he saw what was going on with antifa in Portland and other West Coast cities, he decided he’d seen this story before. A native Floridian and former Green Beret, he has been to 75 countries around the world to document popular uprisings, insurgencies, and civil wars. What he sees happening in America has him deeply troubled. He talked to me about the chances of all out civil war, balkanization of the United States, and how difficult it will be to hold it all together as we approach the most tumultuous election in US history. His time in Portland also reveals that cops are considering walking off the job en masse because of the 4 months of nightly riots and the complete lack of support from political leaders in the city and the state of Oregon. This is Part One of our interview, with Part Two to follow in Episode 28. Michael Yon has done extensive writing for many years on armed conflicts around the world, and published several books. You can follow his work at www.Patreon.com/MichaelYon, on Facebook at www.facebook.com/MichaelYonFanPage, or on Twitter at www.twitter.com/Michael_Yon. My second interview this week is with a cop who’s taken an assumed name so that he can speak out about what he sees on a nightly basis in America’s cities. Brady White wrote a column published at PJ Media by my buddy VodkaPundit, Stephen Green. The column is linked in the show notes – it’s a must read. Brady agreed to come on the Behind the Curtain podcast, and tells us why police morale is completely in the toilet, and many cops are considering early retirement or taking jobs in more rural departments, abandoning the streets of America’s cities to more chaos. You can follow Brady on Twitter at @IAmBradyWhite.  Check out WhoOwnsTheDems.com for more information about my book, and email me at jeff@jefferyreynolds.net to book me for speaking engagements.

A couple of weeks ago, I talked with Gabe Johnson, a retired Marine who lives in downtown Portland, one block from the Justice Center. This week, he returns to give us an update. Gabe was given the opportunity to participate in a Town Hall on race in Portland with Mayor Ted Wheeler. He came away unimpressed. Gabe has also started a fundraising effort to help the chaplain service for the Portland Police. He’s gone from not believing the protests devolved into anarchy to believing Portland must use as much force as possible to sweep the riots off of our streets. Gabe tells us why the Portland Police need our support now more than ever. Go to www.ninelineapparel.com and search Stand for Justice. These are really cool shirts with a patriotic design, and a portion of the money goes directly to the Portland Police chaplain's fund to help police officers who have had to endure unbelievable stress during the downtown riots. My second interview is with Caleb Howard, a pharmacist in Lake County, Oregon. He tells me the hoops he’s had to jump through just to keep his pharmacy open under the OSHA-enforced COVID-19 guidelines, and how Kate Brown’s orders have forced him to either discriminate against disabled patrons, or close his doors and offer curbside pickup only. This is an important review of how the coronavirus lockdown orders have had serious unintended consequences.

Gabriel Johnson, a black Portlander who completely changed his mind about the protests when he went down there - Ep 25

This week I talked with Gabe Johnson, a retired Marine who lives in downtown Portland, one block from the Justice Center. He used to believe that antifa was a lie, and that the protests were peaceful – until he went down there to witness the riots for himself. Gabe is not a Trump supporter, but he is a patriotic American who believes that the US Flag should unite us, not divide us. He wanted to have a conversation with the protesters and find common ground, but had a rude awakening. He’s gone from not believing the protests devolved into anarchy to believing Portland must use as much force as possible to sweep the riots off of our streets. This is a must listen interview.

I wanted to take this segment to take stock and to talk about everything that’s happened since the world ground to a halt in March due to the Chinese Communist Party wreaked havoc on the world with its virus. I’ll discuss the virus itself, the massive economic lockdown that promises to cause at least as much damage as the virus itself, and how we can find our way out of this mess.

Lorraine represents the Immigration Reform Law Instistute, and Attorneys United for a Secure America. Lorraine was in town to address Oregonians for Immigration Reform, and sat down to talk to me about all the problems associated with illegal immigration. We discussed how illegal aliens often get treated better in America than citizens, the security problems associated with illegal immigration, and the need to secure our borders. She’s also recruiting immigration law attorneys to join the IRLI team. You can find more information at www.irli.org and www.ausamerica.org. The second interview this week is with the group of folks who brought you Slavic Vote, one of the largest voter registration movements the Pacific Northwest has ever seen. I talk to Dmitriy, Andrey, and Liliya about what brought them together, how the elders in the churches initially held out before jumping on board, and how they’re changing the electorate by fighting for family values and smaller government in the Russian and Slavic communities in the Pacific Northwest. They have also started a new podcast at anchor.fm/SlavicVote. You can find more information and links to their social media accounts at www.slavicvote.org.

Brenden Dilley on how to beat big tech at its own game, and Justin Brecht of the Oregon Senate Republicans - Ep 21

I made it really easy, too – just go to the website, and click the link at the top that says, Subscribe to the Newsletter. This week’s episode goes a little longer than normal, because it is PACKED with content. The first segment this week features Brenden Dilley, a self help guru turned social media rock star who has been repeatedly deplatformed for his support of President Trump. Brenden says he has the formula for who gets targeted for deplatforming by social media companies, and how to beat them at their own game. Brenden wrote the book, Still Breathin’: The Wisdom and Teachings of a Perfectly Flawed Man in 2013, and currently hosts a daily show on Periscope called The Real Hub Life that draws tens of thousands of viewers daily. I’d tell you where to find him on Twitter, but he’s probably already had his account banned again. In Segment 2, I bring back a previous guest, Justin Brecht. Justin is a policy analyst for the Oregon Senate Republicans, and he came on the show to tell us all the bad bills that are coming in the short legislative session that starts on February 3. Remember, both houses have supermajorities of Democrats, so theoretically they should be able to pass whatever progressive mess they want. Will the Republicans be able to stop them again with a walkout, or will the Democrats change the rules so that the minority party can’t deny quorum? Justin tells us that and much more.

Patrick Gleason of Americans for Tax Reform, and Kevin Chambers of Outlaw Radio - Ep 20
This episode marks the return of the Behind the Curtain podcast after a hiatus of a couple of months. A busy schedule has gotten far busier, but now that the holidays are over, I will try to keep the weekly schedule of episodes going in 2020. Speaking of the new year, I have several irons in the fire, and have dedicated myself to creating a LOT of new content. Also, I am announcing for the first time the creation of my new website, www.jefferyreynolds.net. This is where you’ll find all of my content from all the different platforms where my articles can be read. Also, I want to ask you a favor.

This allows me to keep you updated on all of the cool new stuff I’m doing in 2020. I made it really easy, too – just go to the website, and click the link at the top that says, Subscribe to the Newsletter.  This week’s episode of Behind the Curtain features two very compelling and engaging guests. The first segment features Patrick Gleason, Vice President for State Affairs at Americans for Tax Reform. I sat down with him during his visit to Oregon in November, but the topics are still relevant today, as the short session of the Oregon legislature is about to begin. We discuss how to defeat all the bad legislation that harms voters, how ATR helped defeat a carbon tax in Washington, and what ATR is doing in states to fight back against oppressive new laws. You can follow Patrick on Twitter at @PatrickMGleason.  Segment Two was a LOT of fun to record. I talk with Kevin Chambers from Bremerton, Washington. I had the pleasure of appearing on his Outlaw Radio Show last March to discuss my book. Kevin is a democrat, while his cohost is a republican. As a democrat, Kevin is a fun and engaging host, and he came on my show to discuss a rather absurd fight he’s gotten into with the City of Bremerton. While he was out of town, a republican friend of his played a prank on him by placing a Trump/Pence 2020 sign in his yard. This, inexplicably, has turned into a fight with the city over the sign code – a fight Kevin says has deep implications for the state of our politics today. This is a must listen. Do yourself a favor, and look up Outlaw Radio at kitz1400.com, or on Facebook – they do their shows live every Sunday evening on Facebook Live at FB.com/OutlawRadioNetwork.  Don’t forget to subscribe to the Behind the Curtain podcast wherever you listen to it, and please leave a positive rating.

Michelle Ray and Bruce Carroll on being deplatformed; Brandy Vaughan on Big Pharma - Ep 19
This was a very interesting episode to record. My first segment features two very good, long time friends in the center-right blogging world, while my second segment featured a speaker coming to Oregon to challenge our faith in Big Pharma. I’ve had some compelling conversations while recording this podcast, but this episode ranks as one of the most challenging. Segment One features a conversation with Bruce Carroll and Michelle Ray. I’ve known both for a decade, and count them among my closest friends in the conservatarian movement. They are both heavy users of Twitter, with massive followings. Well, they used to have massive followings, until they were deplatformed for no reason. We talk about their individual circumstances, the lack of consistency in terms of service among social media companies, and the larger picture of what social media has done to civic discourse. Michelle used to be known on Twitter as @galtsgirl, but now she’s @RagnarsMate. Bruce used to be @GayPatriot, but now he’s @AmericanHomoCon. Segment Two is a different kind of conversation. Brandy Vaughan is a former employee of Merck who has become a whistleblower fighting Big Pharma. Brandy challenges many widely held assumptions about vaccines, and pharmaceuticals in general. She founded the non-profit Learn the Risk to alert the public to things they probably don’t know about vaccines.

China and Hong Kong - what's happening right now, and what will be the result? Steve Yates, Dennis Kwok, and Alvin Yeung - Ep 18
This week’s episode is a departure from my typical format. This episode will feature two sections dealing with international affairs. This past weekend, I attended the Platform Convention of the Oregon Republican Party in Pendleton. This weekend featured a votes to strengthen the Individual Liberty and Limited Government section to include medical freedom, bodily autonomy from conception to natural death, term limits on all elected and unelected public officials, a balanced budget amendment, and constitutional restraints on abuse of the commerce clause and the general welfare clause. All of these are unprecedented policy declarations in the history of the Oregon Republican Party. While we were there, we heard from three speakers on the current situation in China, and the protests in Hong Kong. These talks couldn’t have been more timely, as we watch the scene in Hong Kong play out on our newsfeeds each day, and as President Trump continues to try to formulate an effective plan to deal with China. My first guest is Steve Yates, former Deputy Security Director for Vice President Pence. Steve currently serves as the CEO of D.C. International Advisory, and is a frequent guest on Fox News. Yates is an expert on China, and talks to me about the tariffs, Trump’s tweet storm, and how we should deal with Xi Jing Peng, who has taken a much more hard line stance as Communist Party Leader. You can follow Steve on Twitter at @yatesdcia. My second segment features two lawmakers from Hong Kong, Dennis Kwok and Alvin Yeung. Dennis and Alvin sat down with me to talk about the protests in Hong Kong – why they’re happening, what they want from China, and what the international community can expect as an outcome. These protests are massive, and Dennis and Alvin break down why they’re happening. This is a riveting and important interview.

Fired for celebrating Western Culture, and the Medical Freedom Movement: Karen Siegemund of the American Freedom Alliance, and Amber Sims and Senator Dennis Linthicum - Ep 17
My national guest for this episode is Karen Siegemund, who committed the horrible sin of praising Western culture. For this, the private school at which she taught math refused to renew her contract. This is not mere conjecture, this is what she was told. This is something that probably wouldn’t even have happened five years ago, and demonstrates how far down the rabbit hole we’ve gone. We discuss how this wasn’t even a political difference of opinion – she merely sings the praises of Western culture, and how the entire globe prospers and benefits from our achievements. After a 20 year career contracting for the US Navy helping to track Soviet submarines during the Cold War, Karen earned a master’s and a PhD and embarked on a teaching career that found her teaching at the private school she attended as a child. Karen serves as the Chairman of the Board of Directors for the American Freedom Alliance, which has absurdly been listed on the hate list of the Southern Poverty Law Center. You can find the AFA online at www.americanfreedomalliance.org, or on Twitter at @AFAlliance.   This week I was also honored to be joined by two local guests to discuss the Medical Freedom movement in Oregon. I was joined by Amber Sims, an activist and mother involved in the fight against mandatory vaccinations for children in Oregon, along with a repeat guest, State Senator Dennis Linthicum. We discuss the massive movement that grew overnight over House Bill 3063, which would have greatly expanded the authority of the state to demand vaccinations for children before they could attend school, and would have severely curtailed a parent’s right to object. The Medical Freedom Movement led thousands of regular citizens to get involved in Oregon’s political scene for the first time – and they promise not to go away any time soon. This is another in my series of episodes and articles covering the winds of political change in Oregon. Between the 2nd Amendment supporters, Slavic Vote, Medical Freedom, Timber Unity, and the two walkouts by Oregon Republican Senators to deny quorum and stop the march of tyranny by the supermajority in its tracks, it’s become clear that something big is happening that could very well permanently change Oregon for the better.

Criticizing liberal and conservative media; what might have been with Eric Swalwell; How #TimberUnity will change Oregon and the Northwest - Caleb Howe and Loren Hutnick - Ep 16
My first guest this week is my long time blogging buddy, Caleb Howe. I’ve always liked Caleb’s style of critiquing the mainstream media, a skill he’s parlayed into an editing position at Mediaite. He’s also a contributor at PJ Media, and a former editor at RedState. Caleb and I explore the state of media – both conservative and liberal. We also talk about bias problems in big tech and social media, and we talk about the 2020 democratic field. You can find Caleb on all the social medias, under the name Caleb Howe. Caleb stuck around for a bonus segment for our Patreon patrons, in which we break down the Eric Swalwell campaign. Oh, what might have been. This segment is available exclusively at patreon.com/BehindTheCurtainWithJeffReynolds. For a low monthly fee, you get lots of exclusive content you won’t find anywhere else. Plus, paid subscriptions allow me the resources to produce higher quality content. Please consider subscribing today. My local guest this week is a guy who may just end up permanently changing politics as we know it in Oregon and beyond. Loren Hutnick is a trucker who co-founded the #TimberUnity movement in Oregon. This movement grew from zero to over 40,000 members in a matter of weeks, as Oregonians involved in timber, trucking, resource extraction, and agricultural industries coalesced to kill the cap and trade bill. Loren talks about the huge growth of the movement, the junk science behind so-called environmental bills, his plans for his new Timber Unity organization, and how uniting Oregonians who have never before gotten involved in politics might just break the log-jam of decades of radical liberal control.

#Oregon11, #TimberUnity, Forced Injections, leadership, and the grassroots army - Sen. Kim Thatcher and Capt. Greg Wooldridge - Ep 15
Hi, my name is Jeff Reynolds, and this is Episode 15 of the Behind the Curtain podcast. This week’s episodes ended up being a double shot of Oregon news, as much of what’s happening in Oregon has actually made national headlines. This week’s first guest is a hero to many Oregonians. A member of the #Oregon11, Senator Kim Thatcher experienced the nuttiest legislative session she’s ever seen in Salem. The story of the Republican walkout made national news as the Senators left the state in response to threats of arrest by Governor Kate Brown. She participated in two Republican walkouts to deny quorum so that no bills could be passed, in an attempt to get the Democrats to stop abusing their power. We talk about the walkouts, how they successfully killed several bad bills, and what to expect in the next legislative session. We also talk about two huge new grassroots movements that were spawned by bad legislation – the Slavic Activation movement to get more Eastern Europeans and Russians involved in the electoral process, and the Timber Unity movement that rose up to oppose cap and trade legislation. Each of these movements has the potential to bring thousands of new voters into Oregon politics where they have never previously participated. You can follow Senator Thatcher on twitter. at @KimThatcherGOP.  Also, you really should check out slavicvote.org and the #TimberUnity group on Facebook.  My local guest this week is my friend and former candidate for the Republican nomination for governor in Oregon, Greg Wooldridge. Greg is a Navy veteran who served three tours in command of the elite aerobatics team, the Blue Angels. Greg has developed a unique leadership training program that he’s introduced to Fortune 500 companies, teams, and other organizations to help them create an environment in which humility and excellence are promoted. Greg and I discuss how his leadership training can help Oregon Republicans overcome superminority status in Salem, and how Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler and Oregon Governor Kate Brown fail the most basic principles of leadership. This was a really fun discussion, and I think listeners will get a lot out of how he adapted what he learned about leadership in the military for use in the private sector.

I’m currently planning an east coast trip in the fall to speak at my alma mater, Connecticut College, and their college republican club. I’m excited to return after many years and confront the liberal campus culture with real facts about who owns the Professional Left in America.

Kemberlee Kaye on Oberlin College and intersectionality; Crossover episode with James Ball and Nick Prelosky of the Rational Republican Podcast - Ep 14
This week’s episodes is one of my favorites, featuring two discussions that are fun, informative, and thought provoking. It also features my first ever crossover episode, featuring other podcasters in a joint effort. First though, a note on my recording schedule. With the advent of summer and the kids out of school, I’m finding the demands on my time at an all time high. I will continue to attempt a weekly show schedule, and starting this week, episodes will be released on Thursdays.  SO. This week’s first guest is another blogger friend of mine. We go way back, so we have a lot to talk about. Kemberlee Kaye is the Senior Contributing Editor of Legal Insurrection. We discuss the false racism charges that led to an $11 million fine against Oberlin College after a libel lawsuit, the newly formed Legal Insurrection Foundation to combat against the false information propagated by intersectionality and anti-zionist activists, and what President Trump has done to turn her from an enthusiastic opponent in the primary to an enthusiastic supporter of his reelection. You can find Kemberlee’s work at legalinsurrection.com, and she’s on Twitter at twitter.com/kemberleekaye.  Kemberlee also joined me for a BONUS segment for our Patreon subscribers. This is exclusive content only available to the paid subscribers to Behind the Curtain on Patreon. In this bonus segment, we continued our great conversation by talking about Jussie Smollett, Justin Amash, and what Republicans do right on messaging – and what they do pathetically wrong. Sign up as a patron at patreon.com/BehindTheCurtainWithJeffReynolds.  My local guests this week are James Ball and Nick Prelosky. These guys are not only local Republican precinct committeepeople from Multnomah County, but they also host The Rational Republican Podcast. They describe the podcast as promoting individual liberty and conservative principles while rejecting hatred and divisiveness. This episode was a cool concept where we began our discussion for a segment on their podcast – discussing our differences over the forced child vaccination bill that Oregon floated in this past legislative session – and ending with this segment on Behind the Curtain talking about how Republicans can create messages that win hearts and minds in Oregon. We go in depth on this topic, and a few fireworks fly. Great discussion! You can find the Rational Republican podcast on all major podcast services, and on social media by searching State over Party. You can also check them out at their website, jamesaball.com.  Quick note about my book. I’m currently planning an east coast trip in the fall to speak at my alma mater, Connecticut College, and their college republican club.

2020 Democratic hopefuls, corrupt sex education curriculum, and searching for transportation solutions - Kira Davis and John Ley - Ep 13
Welcome in to Lucky Episode Number 13 of the Behind the Curtain podcast. I’m your host, Jeff Reynolds. This week I talk to two very involved activists who focus a lot of their energy on local politics, while maintaining a national perspective. My first guest is mom, activist, writer, and podcaster extraordinaire, Kira Davis. My buddy Kira and I go way back to the early days of the Tea Party, blogging, and surviving the Kruiser Kabana days. She recently earned a position as roving editor of RedState, along with co-hosting the Smart Girls Politics podcast with April Gregory. Kira and I talk about her new position at RedState, the state of conservative media – a favorite topic of mine – and her deep dive into the comprehensive sex education curriculum in California, and her organizing efforts to fight back. We also poke fun at the 2020 field of Democratic presidential hopefuls, just for fun. You can find Kira on Twitter at twitter.com/realkiradavis. Also, be sure to follow her on RedState.com, and subscribe to the Smart Girls Politics podcast.  Quick note: again no bonus segment this week for Patreon, but you really should go check out previous recordings. There’s tons of extra info available exclusively for our patrons, which you can find at patreon.com/BehindTheCurtainWithJeffReynolds.  My local guest this week is John Ley, who lives just over the Columbia River in Southwest Washington. John has been following local transportation issues in Oregon and Washington for years, and ran for the Washington legislature in 2014. We chat about how insane the transportation policies of our respective states are, how destructive tolling will be for the average commuter, and what they should be doing but refuse to do to solve our regional transportation problems. This was a fun talk that really got into a lot of important detail. You can read more of John’s stuff at www.johnley.us.

Fraud and corruption in government minority contracts, and the Oregon Senate walkout - Ralph Taylor and Sen. Dennis Linthicum - Ep 12
Hello and welcome in to Episode 12 of the Behind the Curtain podcast. I’m your host, Jeff Reynolds. This week I feature two interviews with folks who thrust themselves into the arena to expose massive fraud and corruption in government. My first guest is Ralph Taylor. Ralph is the plaintiff in a federal court case that currently sits waiting approval of cert at the Supreme Court. His case blows the lid off massive corruption in the awarding of federal contracts to minority owned businesses. He demonstrates how thousands of Caucasians may have been granted such contracts, how his DNA test that shows some African and Hispanic blood qualified him for minority status at the state level but not the federal level, and how some Indian tribes are granting tribal membership without having to prove a certain percentage of Native American blood. Somewhere Elizabeth Warren is drooling at the possibilities. Quick note: no bonus segment this week for Patreon, but you really should go check out previous recordings. There’s tons of extra info available exclusively for our patrons, which you can find at patreon.com/BehindTheCurtainWithJeffReynolds.  My Oregon guest this week is Senator Dennis Linthicum from Klamath Falls. Dennis participated in the Senate Republican walk out over the past several days to deny quorum in the chamber in a desperate attempt to slow down some really bad bills being forced on Oregonians by the Democrats, who hold supermajorities in both chambers of our legislature. Dennis explains what the Republicans were protesting and trying to stop, what they got as part of the bargain to return and hold the votes on Monday, and why they had to end their walkout. We also discuss what the landscape looks like as we head into the election year of 2020. You can find Dennis’ writings at thedirtroadeconomist.com and oregonlegislature.gov/Linthicum.  Don’t forget to subscribe to the Behind the Curtain podcast wherever you listen to it, and please leave a positive rating.

Conservative Media, Portland in Crisis, and Elites Ignoring the People - Paula Bolyard and Angela Todd - Ep 11
Right off the bat I want to apologize for not dropping this episode last Wednesday. There were a string of scheduling snafus, and I personally had a hellish week dealing with in laws in the hospital, insurance claims, and all sorts of other time sucks. Thanks for sticking with the Behind the Curtain podcast. This week’s episode is absolutely worth the wait. So this week, I have two powerful and thoughtful women on my podcast.  My first guest is my good friend and boss, Paula Bolyard. Paula is the Managing Editor for PJ Media, where I frequently contribute columns. We talk about the evolution of center right media, the continued need to provide an alternative to the biased mainstream media, and what the future might hold. Paula stuck around for our bonus segment exclusive for our Patreon patrons, talking always trumpers, never trumpers, and Trump Train 2020. Hint: Jen Rubin and Bill Kristol made it into our discussion. You can follow Paula on Twitter at @pbolyard.  This segment and other exclusive content is at patreon.com/BehindtheCurtainWithJeffReynolds. For a low monthly fee, you gain early access to the free podcast, along with exclusive content found nowhere else.  My second segment is a conversation with an activist in East Portland, which goes largely ignored by the downtown Portland elites. Her name is Angela Todd, and she’s made national headlines for pushing back against the apathy Portland leaders have shown towards our homeless crisis. She founded the Montavilla Initiative, a gathering of neighbors in her neighborhood to talk about what’s going on in the streets. She talks about how dangerous the streets have become, how city hall ignores her, the attacks she’s faced from national media, and something truly unique – how she and her neighbors organize groups to stop talking to each other, and go and talk to the people on their streets. It’s an eye opening conversation, and something I’ve personally wanted to do for a long time. Well, Angela has done it, and you really need to hear the results of her efforts. You can read about her good work at montavilla.org or on Facebook at www.fb.com/MontavillaInitiative.

Tenth Anniversary of the Tea Party, and Local Political Shenanigans - Brad Marston and Marty Heyen - Ep 10
Thanks once again for joining me this week for Episode 10 of the Behind the Curtain Podcast. This is our 11th episode, but it’s only Episode 10, because we had a bonus track last week. Gonna need to talk to the boss about the math here. Anyway, you really should check out the two episodes last week if you haven’t already. This week’s episode features a discussion about the history and future of the American Tea Party Movement, and another about the seedy and seamy side of local politics. Both guests show that all politics is local. My first guest is my good friend Brad Marston. Brad co-founded Four Tier Strategies, a political consulting firm, after being a founding organizer of the 2009 Boston Tea Party. Brad and I go way back to the founding of the American Tea Party movement. April 15 marked the ten year anniversary of the explosion of the movement into American politics. Brad and I talk about the massive impact we had, where the movement is today, how it coexists with the Trump presidency, and where we go in the future. Also, you get to hear Brad talk about Joe Biden’s affinity for 12 year old girls. Good times. Brad is currently involved with The Wounded Blue, which he describes as Wounded Warriors for domestic first responders. You can find more information at www.thewoundedblue.org, and contribute at gofundme.com/the-wounded-blue. Brad is on Twitter at @BradMarston. A quick note for our Patreon patrons: no bonus segment this week. Scheduling was a challenge this week, and we did not have enough time to set aside a bonus segment. BUT – Brad’s segment goes extra long, so for one week only, you basically get bonus content for free. You can check out previous bonus segments with guests like Stephen Kruiser, Rebecca Friedrichs, Michael Loftus, and many others, at patreon.com/BehindtheCurtainWithJeffReynolds.  My second segment is a conversation with a school board member running for reelection here in Oregon. Marty Heyen sits on the Salem-Keizer School Board, and has come under fire recently by an extreme progressive group for the sin of holding the endorsement of Oregon Right to Life. We talk about these social media attacks she’s endured, the extreme sex education agenda they’re pushing in our schools, and how the radical progressives have organized themselves to take out common sense conservatives at every level. You can find her contact info and social media sites at heyenfororegon.com.  Don’t forget to subscribe to the Behind the Curtain podcast wherever you listen to it, and please leave a positive rating.

Kyle Reyes on the culture of today's politics; Jonathan Lockwood and Ben West on being gay and conservative in Oregon - Ep 9
This week’s episode features not two, but three conservative firebrands who take an aggressive approach to getting their message out.  My first guest is Kyle Reyes, who founded Whiskey Patriots and serves as the spokesman for Law Enforcement Today. I first came across Kyle in 2018 when I wrote about his high school alma mater refusing to let him speak at a dedication ceremony for a new memorial at the school, for the sin of being conservative. Kyle has a large national following, and the school squandered an opportunity for wide positive news coverage, because the students supposedly would be afraid of the mere presence of a conservative. Kyle and I talk about the current state of affairs in our country, what the organized Left is doing to undermine our society, and the lies that propel the movement to tear down America.  Kyle also recorded a bonus segment exclusively for our Patreon patrons. He gives us even more conservative red meat, expanding on the theme of electing more people at all levels of government who still believe in our core constitutional beliefs. Subscribers get access to this kind of exclusive material and many other features. Check it out at patreon.com/BehindTheCurtainWithJeffReynolds.  My second, Oregon centered segment this week is a bit of a departure. Yesterday I released a bonus episode with an interview with Kim Sordyl, talking about the Oregon Secretary of State’s office. If you missed it, you really should check it out. Anyway, I have two guests this week who are allies of Kim’s. My original intent with this episode was to have a roundtable discussion with two prominent gay conservatives in Oregon, Jonathan Lockwood and Ben West. Well, as John Lennon put it, life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans, and the discussion idea fell through due to scheduling problems. I recorded separate segments with Jonathan and Ben, with the idea of talking to them about being gay and conservative in Oregon, and what they face from the left and the right while taking that position. These were two fascinating conversations.  Don’t forget to subscribe to the Behind the Curtain podcast wherever you listen to it, and please leave a positive rating.

BONUS - Interview with Kim Sordyl, formerly of the Oregon Secretary of State's office
While I was at the Dorchester Conference over the weekend, I had the opportunity to interview Kim Sordyl. She was appointed by Oregon Secretary of State Dennis Richardson to be his representative to the Oregon Board of Education. Kim is an activist and mom who has done battle with Portland Public Schools to force more transparency and more protection for abused kids. Kim resigned from her position at the Secretary of State's office on Friday, April 12, and has some very disturbing reasons why. She and I peel back more layers of the onion, and she makes some very pointed accusations about the new Secretary of State, Bev Clarno. We also discuss how administrators and the teachers unions conspire to protect teachers accused of abusing kids in Portland Public Schools. She also gave me a scoop about a paraeducator who is known to have molested a disabled child, based on a six figure settlement paid out by PPS, and will be back in the classroom very soon with other disabled children. Meanwhile, as sex abuse reports come in on a daily basis, the Chair of Oregon's House Education Committee works with the unions to deny that a problem exists at all. Kim tells me that at every level of government, abuse is being swept under the rug. This is an explosive interview, and we packed a lot in to a half hour. In exasperation, Kim tells me, "Public employees get to rape children. Period." This is a MUST LISTEN. Please note, the audio quality suffered from a weak data signal and lots of background noise. I cleaned up as much as I could, but please be patient. You won't be disappointed.

Public Sector Union abuse and intimidation - with Rebecca Friedrichs and Aaron Withe - Ep 8
 Welcome in to Episode 8 of the Behind the Curtain Podcast with Jeff Reynolds. This week’s episode features two guests who have made national news by standing up to the public sector unions. Both guests dovetail with my book, Behind the Curtain, because they examine the tactics and funding of the extreme left that few people get to see. By taking on the powerful and corrupt public sector unions, they expose themselves to all manners of bullying, abuse, and intimidation. My first guest is Rebecca Friedrichs, a teacher with a 28 year career in California. Rebecca recently published a book about her experiences fighting the California teachers unions that saw her come to the very brink of going down in Supreme Court history before the unfortunate early demise of Justice Antonin Scalia. The book relays Rebecca’s testimony, along with the testimony of over 50 teachers that she interviewed to give a broad look at how teachers unions betray their members. It’s called Standing Up To Goliath: Battling State and National Teachers’ Unions for the Heart and Soul of Our Kids and Country. It’s available on Amazon now. Rebecca also talks to me about why she founded For Kids and Country, a non-profit website that provides resources to teachers nationwide, in a post-Janus world, on how to escape their union. It also provides resources for parents to opt out of radical sex education curriculums being pushed for kids at ever younger ages. The website is forkidsandcountry.org.   Rebecca also recorded a bonus segment exclusively for our Patreon patrons. She goes into greater depth about how her union bullied her at every turn, what their true motivations are, and what she’s doing now to help teachers all over the country fight back. Subscribers get access to this kind of exclusive material and many other features. Check it out at patreon.com/BehindTheCurtainWithJeffReynolds.  My second guest is Aaron Withe, Oregon Director of the Freedom Foundation. Aaron and I discuss what’s going on in Salem, and how the unions are pushing blatantly unconstitutional bills to protect their revenue flow in a post-Janus world. He talks about how the Freedom Foundation will fight these affronts to a free society – seriously folks, you won’t believe how brazen the unions have been in their attempts to get their Democratic friends to do their bidding in this legislative session. Learn more about the Freedom Foundation at freedomfoundation.org. Don’t forget to subscribe to the Behind the Curtain podcast wherever you listen to it, and please leave a positive rating. The more subscribers and the better ratings, the higher Behind the Curtain will rank on podcast services like iTunes and Google Podcasts, among MANY OTHERS.  I’m happy to report that my book continues to generate buzz. It’s called Behind the Curtain: Inside the Network of Progressive Billionaires and their Campaign to Undermine Democracy. This weekend, I will be signing copies and hosting a cigar happy hour at the Dorchester Conference, which is being held in Welches, Oregon this year.

Stacey Lennox and Karen Darnell - Ep 7
Welcome in to Episode 7 of the Behind the Curtain Podcast with Jeff Reynolds. This week, both my national guest and my guest from Oregon dig in to the same subjects I covered in my book, Behind the Curtain, and there’s tons of bonus content available to our Patreon patrons. We get into all sorts of shady funding, radical protest groups, and what they’re really up to. My first guest is my good friend, a writer for The Resurgent, a self described twitter big-mouth, a spirit animal, and the first person to refer to me as a menace. It’s an inside joke. Anyway, her name is Stacey Lennox, and she’s gone down similar research rabbit holes I did to find out who’s coordinating and funding the student walkout to protest climate change, along with a bunch of other radical campaigns. You can find Stacey on twitter at @ScotsFyre. Stacey also co-hosts the Game On radio show on KLRN Radio on Sunday nights, and regularly appears on the podcast for my guest last week, @TheLoftusParty.  In the bonus segment – exclusively for our Patreon patrons – Stacey and I take a deep dive into how the Left organizes and coordinates all its different foundations and protest groups, and what the Right needs to do to keep up. Hint: we’re not keeping up at all, and it continues to hurt us at the polls. This is the kind of material that is only available to our paid subscribers, so please consider a small monthly subscription. Check it out at patreon.com/BehindTheCurtainWithJeffReynolds.  My second guest covering Oregon topics this week is Karen Darnell. Karen is the President of Streamsavers, a non-profit organization dedicated to erasing the negative effects of man and nature upon nature. They use specialized equipment to clean streambeds around Oregon, removing lead, mercury, trash, and toxic debris from our waterways. We discuss their opposition, and why they can’t be invited to the cool kids club of radical environmentalists funded by the biggest names on the organized Left. For more information, visit streamsavers.org. You can follow Karen on Twitter at @JustAskKarenD.  Don’t forget to subscribe to the Behind the Curtain podcast wherever you listen to it, and please leave a positive rating. The more subscribers and the better ratings, the higher Behind the Curtain will rank on podcast services like iTunes, Google Podcasts, Spotify, Anchor, and MANY OTHERS.  Also, if you want to learn who’s coordinating the hashtag resistance to Donald Trump, buy my book. It’s called Behind the Curtain: Inside the Network of Progressive Billionaires and their Campaign to Undermine Democracy. You will be amazed at how vast the radical progressive money supply is. Search for it in stores, or online at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or Simon and Schuster. It’s available in hardback, Kindle, or Nook Now.

Hey everybody! Thanks for checking out Episode 6 of the Behind the Curtain Podcast with Jeff Reynolds. I think you’re really going to find this episode entertaining, and there’s tons of bonus content available to our Patreon patrons. My first guest is a TV writer, actor, and stand-up comic, Michael Loftus. Michael is currently on tour with his comedy troupe, The Deplorables. It’s such a small world sometimes in politics. I first became aware of Michael on the TV series, The Smoking Gun Presents the World’s Dumbest Criminals. Then, I had the privilege of hanging out with him two years ago at CPAC, and only then realized what a conservative he had become. We talk about the Mueller investigation, the state of entertainment and the media, how conservatives can survive, and what he’s doing to fight back against the Hollyweird liberal bias. This was a fun conversation, chock full of insight and humor. Michael Loftus is all over social media, and you can find his comedy clips everywhere. Find him on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram at @TheLoftusParty, his podcast is The Loftus Party on all major podcasts outlets, and you can find the current comedy tour at www.deplorableshow.com.  Michael also recorded a bonus segment for our Patreon subscribers.

Subscribers get access to this kind of exclusive material and many other features. Check it out at patreon.com/BehindTheCurtainWithJeffReynolds.  My second guest is Denise Quinn, a former radio host and one of my dearest friends from the Tea Party movement in Oregon. We connected at the Second Amendment Rally in Salem on Saturday the 23rd. We talk about the state of the conservative movement in Oregon, how you can still have an effect at the local level, and what the people in the Marble Nuthouse in Salem are doing to screw the average Oregonian. It was a fun conversation, and we even had a sound track with the band from the gun rally.  Don’t forget to subscribe to the Behind the Curtain podcast wherever you listen to it, and please leave a positive rating.

Kimberly Morin and Jeff Kropf - Ep 5
Welcome in to Episode 5 of the Behind the Curtain Podcast with Jeff Reynolds. Once again, this episode is packed with all kinds of extra content. My first guest is my long time friend, Second Amendment activist, and all around bad ass, Kimberly Morin. Like me, Kimberly went from completely uninvolved in politics in 2008 to becoming a serial activist. Because of this activism, she was targeted by the Left, and decided she needed to protect herself. But she didn’t just buy a gun and lock it away. She’s the founder and board member of the Women’s Defense League of New Hampshire. She’s also NRA certified as an instructor in Basic Pistol, Rifle, Shotgun, Personal Protection in the Home, Chief Range Safety Officer, and Refuse To Be A Victim. She has taught hundreds of women to safely and accurately shoot. Kimberly has spent thousands of hours researching and writing as an investigative journalist as well as blogger extraordinaire. Basically, I just spin her up and let her rant about the Left’s constant push to remove personal liberties. You can find Kimberly’s articles at granitegrok.com, nhpoliticalbuzz.com, and therealside.com. The Women’s Defense League is at wdlnh.org, and you can find Kimberly on Twitter at @conservativeind.   Kimberly also recorded a bonus segment exclusively for our Patreon patrons. In this segment, Kimberly talks about watching the video of the New Zealand mosque massacres, and what she observed about survival skills, or lack thereof. This is a MUST LISTEN. Subscribers get access to this kind of exclusive material and many other features. Check it out at patreon.com/BehindTheCurtainWithJeffReynolds.    My second guest is Jeff Kropf, who is a radio show host and the  Executive Director of the Oregon Capitol Watch Foundation. Jeff and I  discuss Republican messages that win, and Republican messages that lose.  We had to cram it in to a 20 minute segment because he was leaving  immediately to deliver a eulogy for a long time supporter of the patriot  movement in Oregon, Ames Curtwright.  This is a power packed segment.  You can find Jeff on twitter at @jeffkropf.    Don’t forget to subscribe to the Behind the Curtain podcast wherever you listen to it, and please leave a positive rating.

Gabriella Hoffman and Josiah Underwood - Ep 4
Welcome in to Episode 4 of the Behind the Curtain Podcast with Jeff Reynolds. Once again, this episode is packed with all kinds of extra content. I didn’t necessarily plan it this way, but this week’s episode has a Second Amendment and outdoor conservation theme. My first guest is a conservative millennial, which may seem like a contradiction in terms. Her name is Gabriella Hoffman, and she has a fascinating story to tell. The daughter of refugees from the former Soviet Union, Gabriella is all about the freedoms afforded by the United States of America. A prolific writer, Gabby’s articles have appeared at The Resurgent, Field & Stream, Yahoo! News, and many other outlets. You really also should check out her podcast, the District of Conservation. She and I talk about a conservative message on conservation that can work, the importance of the second amendment, and the evils of socialism. You can follow Gabriella on Twitter at @Gabby_Hoffman. Her website is www.gabriellahoffman.com.  Gabriella also recorded a bonus segment exclusively for our Patreon patrons. It’s a full extra hour plus of me and Gabriella riffing on politics. Subscribers get access to this kind of exclusive material and many other features. Check it out at patreon.com/BehindTheCurtainWithJeffReynolds.  My second guest is Josiah Underwood, who is the Director of Operations of Radian Weapons. Radian is a gun manufacturer based in Redmond, Oregon, which is bold enough on its face. But Radian also sponsored the Rally to Save the 2nd Amendment in Salem, Oregon, which comes up on March 23. Radian has put its money where its mouth is, putting up $100,000 of its own money to sponsor the event, and hire charter buses from all corners of Oregon to bring activists in for the event. Josiah and I discuss the foundational importance of the Second Amendment to all liberties protected in the US Constitution. You can find Radian on Facebook at facebook.com/RadianWeapons.  Don’t forget to subscribe to the Behind the Curtain podcast wherever you listen to it, and please leave a positive rating.

Stephen Kruiser and Justin Brecht - Ep 3
Episode 3. Hey everyone, just a quick note. I meant to get this episode out last week, but I encountered audio difficulties and then went to CPAC, so my travel schedule didn’t allow me to publish this episode. Going forward we will continue to publish every Wednesday. Thanks for your patience and understanding. Please forgive the less than stellar audio, but we did the best we could.

Ep. 1: Star Parker and Jonathan Lockwood
In my first segment, I talk with Star Parker, who hung out with me at the Oregon Freedom Fest to talk about her organization, The Center for Urban Renewal and Education. Star is a natural story teller and a very engaging guest. She talked frankly about her life prior to Christian conversion in which she used abortion like birth control, and her life after her conversion. She got a degree, she opened a business, she lost that business in the 1992 riots in LA, and she became a fierce advocate for welfare reform. She tells of the security threats she's faced for daring to challenge the liberal orthodoxy, she describes converting inner city pastors to free market ideals, she talks about biblical property rights, and she works tirelessly to eradicate the victimhood mentality. You can find Star on Twitter at @UrbanCure, on Facebook at www.facebook.com/UrbanCURE, and on the web at urbancure.org. For my second segment, I sat down with Jonathan Lockwood, Oregon's bomb-throwing Republican communications strategist. He pushes back on the idea that telling the truth is akin to throwing bombs, and addresses the controversy surrounding the press release last week by his boss, Senator Dennis Linthicum, which used the death of Eric Garner to argue against new cigarette taxes in Oregon. We discuss messaging, strategy, and how Republicans can reach voters in blue Oregon. We also discuss all the horrible laws coming to Oregon courtesy of the Democratic supermajorities in both houses of the legislature. You can follow Jonathan on his unapologetic Twitter feed at @JNTHN_LCKWD.
