My passion is the fight for freedom. My father fought for a World War II defending our country. Today, we are no longer fighting with guns. Instead, we are fighting an ideological battle for control of our country by contributing to causes that support your constitutional rights.

I am Patriot Mobile. That was a shooting gallery up there. I could hear the tremble in his voice. She suffered a very severe being. The video is pretty graphic.

Justice for us seems almost impossible. It's not fun to watch somebody die, and they knew she was in mortal peril. They had not asked the hard questions. Why was the Capitol intentionally unsecure that day? The FBI had information about security concerns before January 16th. They're out for blood, and they're getting it. They appear to be winning. Were the actions of the Capitol Police out of line? Were there violations in use of force?

Now I describe it as an inside job. I'm ready to do whatever God calls me. There's an old Chinese saying my ancestors learned before the Communist Party took over our country. The family is the essential unit of human society, and that you must have honor and defend your family. But it's not always easy to do.

When the regime gives the order, you have to kill. My heart was pounding. I felt my body bouncing and twisting on the floor. They put numbers on our shoulders, then separated us into rows of even and odd numbers.

I was number nine. My brother, he's still in prison, and my sister, she was sent to a labor camp without a trial. But there's one piece of evidence they haven't been able to destroy yet.

I left everything behind. If I can't expose what they did to us, then all of our suffering would be for nothing. Welcome to Chosen Generation with your host, Pastor Greg Young. But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people, that you should shoe forth the praises of him who has called you out of darkness into his marvelous light, which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God, which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.

And now, Chosen Generation, where no topic is off limits and everything is filtered through biblical glasses. And now, here's your host, Pastor Greg. And welcome to the program. Great to have you with me. Thanks so much for being here.

I know you have a choice on where you can listen each and every day, and I thank you for keeping it tuned here to Chosen Generation Radio, where no topic is off limits and everything is filtered through biblical glasses. And I'm just so incredibly excited to be starting a new, I don't know, kind of a new move. I know we've had members of Project 21 on before. We've done a lot of different things, but I'm very excited to be connecting with my next guest. She has been on the program a number of times. We've also gotten to know each other and had great conversations, just privately had great conversations, and just felt like, you know, at a certain point, we should come together and share our perspectives, our creativity, our God-given talents together, and we're going to start doing that with a segment every single Wednesday. And I want to thank Kenneth McClinton, the president of TCN TV, who kind of gave us the final nudge, if you will.

And so, Kenneth, thank you for that, and I welcome to the program Melanie Collette, host of Money Talk with, regular contributor, both in written form and in appearance form on Newsmax TV as well. And now we'll be a regular appear here, and gee, that background looks awfully familiar. I don't know. I know, I like it, it's very, now is it showing through the way it's supposed to? Oh my gosh, no, it is so sharp behind you, and you just, you make it glow. You're glowing. Well, thank you, sir.

So no, it's fantastic. Well, you know, just to take a moment, if you would, for my audience sake, and a lot of them may well be very familiar with you, but some may not. So give us just a brief background of the journey that you've taken to be a black conservative woman fighting for conservative Christian values, real biblical values, by the way. You know, it's kind of crazy that it is even a thing that is bothersome to other people.

I don't quite get that. I was baptized, I've been a Christian since I was 21 years old. I'm now 52, I'll be 53 this September, I'm just giving you, you know, a frame of reference for how long, you know, it's been since I dedicated my life. And when you take the Bible and the Constitution together, and then you read political platforms, it seems to me that at least it made sense to me that, right, it made sense to me that I be on a particular side politically, that I be a Christian conservative. And so, and I didn't think it was a big deal that I was black and a Christian conservative until President Obama ran for election, and that's when my interest really turned to politics. And I noticed that so many people assumed that I was voting for him, and I, very naive and very green to the political world, you know, looked at him and thought, okay, well, he's only been a senator for six months.

That doesn't seem like a lot of experience. Also, he's pro-abortion and I was pro-life, that doesn't seem good. I think that if you are going to provide programs for people that they should have some skin in the game. You know, when I was in undergrad, I noticed, I worked two jobs in undergrad, but I noticed that some of the people around me who looked like me were, you know, were on different programs and they got everything for free. And I always thought that that was unfair, like because my parents, my parents were, you know, middle class, but not enough money to pay for college necessarily. So I worked two jobs and I was like, okay, I get, I get your books and tuition, okay, but why not, why don't you have to pay for your food? Like I don't understand that.

Like why, why aren't you working? Yeah. Or your housing or, or, or, or something. I mean, where'd this idea of just a free ride come from and, and yeah, and an entitlement to it. Right. Right. I never understood that. And that was like kind of my first introduction to government programs and the way they work.

And consequently, I think, you know, the, the percentage of students who are on those programs that, that complete their college education is not as high as it should be. Right. And I think part of the reason is because you don't have any skin in the game. So you know, that, that's kind of how that started my journey. And then I had a long, a long distance ride to work at one point in my life. And I started, I got a, I got Sirius XM and I was listening to music as I normally did, but Sirius XM, no shade to Sirius XM.

I I've done work on there as well. But you know, the music is uncut. There's no, they don't bleep anything out.

No filters. Right. Right. Right. Right. Right. Right. Right. Yeah.

It's satellite. So there's no rules. That's right. So to speak. There's no FCC stepping in there and saying, you can't say this.

That's right. And I'm listening to my music at like six in the morning and I'm like, it is too early for all that profanity. Very risque. I'm trying to keep it clean and all the risque language, which, which, which, well, which Melanie was actually, they were, they were indoctrinating you without, and you, you, you as a Christian through that filter were like, you know what, I shouldn't be putting this in my ears. But they were playing that music and I'm just going to say it. They were targeting the black community with that music, with that kind of messaging, wanting to get people thinking a certain way.

And that's, I mean, be promiscuous, have a bunch of kids, you know, uh, get a bunch of abortions. I mean, it, it, it, it was, you know, booty calls. It, it, it, it was honest to goodness folks, it's indoctrinations.

I know I was in the Christian holy hip hop industry for a number of years, so I, I know, go ahead. I'm sorry. I didn't mean to interrupt you, but I'm just, yeah. Well, what happened? I was like, it's too early for this.

So I, plus I worked at a school, so I felt like, you know, icky going into a school environment, like, ah, wow. I switched over to talk radio and I started listening to Glenn Beck. Ah, okay. That's how it started.

This is many, many moons ago. And um, I was like, this guy makes sense. And again, I didn't know conservative necessarily from liberal and like it was a thing and like that because I was black, I was not supposed to agree with what he was saying.

I really didn't know that completely clearly. No, no, no, nobody, nobody sent you the letter. You didn't get the newsletter. I did not get the memo, wasn't invited to the meeting. So something goes down regarding Obama and there's this comment about, um, how he's clean and articulate.

Our president said that it's a fairytale. And then, uh, there's another, uh, I think Harry Reid said something about him not having a Negro dialect. So I was in a conversation with, uh, someone who happens to be a producer for Michael Sperkandis. This is when I worked in Philly and, uh, her, one of her kids went to, went to the school that I worked at and I was in this conversation with her and I told her about it and she was like, you should come on the show and talk about this. So I did, that was my, my radio debut.

I think I still had a clip somewhere. Wow. Wow. How cool.

Yeah. And I was like, you know, are you voting for Barack Obama? And I was like, I don't think that I am. And I listed all the reasons that I shared with you earlier. Um, and I talked about all the like kind of pushback and assumptions that I was getting from people.

Like people were coming up to me saying like, isn't this wonderful that you're finally, you know, you're going to be able to make history. And I was like, I'm not voting for him. So yeah. Yeah, and it really just seems to be accepted that you can just say based on the color of your skin, you're going to vote. So when Joe Biden, so when Joe Biden is so familiar, when Joe Biden said that if you don't vote for me, you're not black, that you, you weren't, you weren't, they weren't, you weren't so much down with that. I was not down with that.

And I'm not down with the presumption at all to me. If we have to do what is right, you know, for us as an individual, even if everybody else isn't doing it. Yeah. Right.

Yeah. So, you know, if just because everybody, you know, the group thinks that you're supposed to be doing that, if it's not right for you, you have to stand up and say, it's not right for me. And also, how dare you? Well, you know, the other, the other piece that I think is a part of this and it kind of goes into your involvement with with the school as a teacher, was the LGBTQ agenda that was being pushed on our children. And once again, you know, and I and I, I've called out Dennis Prager for his comments on on Pride Month, because in his comments on on Pride Month, he made a statement calling out of a book called The Man's Search for Meaning something along that line written by a Holocaust survivor, in which he quotes and he says that that he said that there this man said, there's decent people and indecent people. And then Dennis goes on to suggest that if you are in the gay class, that now you're a decent person. Well, now you're, you know, you're no, you're decent. You are decent. You are decent if you're if you're and and I'm like, okay, here's the problem. Decent means moral. LGBTQ, I don't care where you are on the scale, you can say I have conservative values.

That's great. You don't have to speak up for what you what you what you think. But just recognize that the lifestyle itself is under no circumstances, moral or decent. Period. And it's that thought and I don't get this part.

I don't understand this. I don't understand how having that thought, having being in agreement with that, why that equals to being a bigot, nobody is saying that anyone in that community should be picked on, discriminated against, anything like that. Nobody's saying anything like that. Oh, all Christians are saying is we don't agree that that's it. Well, we don't agree. We don't agree. Yeah.

Understanding that the Bible does not agree and therefore that God does not agree. That is how we understand it. So yeah. And that's all we're saying. And that's what I think. Well, and I'll and I'll take it to the place also of suggesting that if we say that it's OK and we instituted as a law, which is what we've done, now we have changed. Who is the law giver?

Because God would never give that law approval ever under any circumstance. I agree with you on that. And that's this is why it's my belief that I apologize to the storm coming in and it's thundering. That's why my dog is. Oh, no, you're fine.

You don't hate. You know what? Yeah, I'm and that's and let me tell you something that may be a metaphor. It's a reality, but it's also a metaphor because what we are talking about is the storm that has that is coming in and that has come in and that is continuing to come in. And the target of that storm is the children. Oh, absolutely. The target of the storm is the children. But but, you know, it's we've gone from let's not discriminate against, you know, people who have a certain lifestyle, sexuality, confusion, whatever, whatever is encapsulated in the whole alphabet situation.

We've gone from that to now. We have to celebrate, agree with, lift up, highlight, focus on people's sexuality. And that is not only immoral and inappropriate, but it is certainly against God's law. So, you know, you can't and listen, if people people it's my belief, especially when it comes to politically that or even morally like everybody is going to stand up.

Stand before God. Right. Yep. On their own.

On their own. It's not going to be a conference call. No. Right. It's not going to be a group. You're not going to be able to look back at the audience and go, hey, they all say they all agree with me. So maybe you should change your mind, God.

No, it's not going to happen. Right. But, you know, the government, well, particularly on the left, they really think that they are bigger than God.

Right. And that's why it's important to God that their law supersedes God's law. And that's, you know, part of the bigger problem and part of why they think that they can come after kids. Well, and and and and then as a as a baseline and again, going back to what Mr. Prager said, and there's a lot of great stuff that comes out of Prager, OK, a lot of good stuff, really good stuff. But in this instance, I think he missed the point.

And and part of the reason why is this. And this is why our founders and a lot of people don't talk about this had an issue with John Locke because John Locke put out two hands and he said, in this hand, man gives you your freedom. In this hand, God gives you your freedom.

Our founders said no, neither one. Our founders said, I am endowed with freedom by God. In other words, God's not handing it to me and then maybe taking it back. God literally, when he made me, when he fearfully and wonderfully created me, he put life in me. He put liberty in me. He put abundant life in me. He gave me everything for life and godliness.

He put it in me. Now, my encounter with Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit is what transforms me from the sin nature to the new nature. And I am now alive, fully alive and able to do it, which is why John Adams said, our Constitution, it's all about rights. It's all about freedom. It's all about liberty. It's not about restrictions, only on the government. The government is who gets the restrictions.

The people get the rights, but you can't. It's like saying to kids, okay, look, I've got cookies over here and licorice over here. And then I've got fruits and vegetables and meat in the cooler. Okay, now you can eat anything you want in the kitchen. I give you the right to do that. But if you don't have the right moral set, if you haven't been trained up right, you you're going to eat cookies and licorice all day long, and you are going to be sick as a dog.

Okay. That's the part. But if you've been trained up right, and you've got the right countenance, you're going to go into the refrigerator, and you're going to eat the fruits, and you're going to eat the vegetables, and you're going to eat the meats, and you're going to eat healthy. And then occasionally, you're going to get into the cookie cupboard or the licorice cupboard, and you're going to and you're going to have a treat. But only after you've made sure that your body has what it needs to remain healthy.

For sure, that's exactly right. And from the Garden of Eden, from the beginning, God gave us freedom. He did not want to make little robots, he could have, but that's not how he made us. So you know, and I don't, I fail to understand, well, I shouldn't say I fail to understand. Part of me doesn't want to believe that people are so so evil, that they want to force, that they want to force their beliefs and their values on other people. Like I said, we've gone from, you're not allowed to discriminate, even against, you know, black folks, the LGBTQIA plus community, we've gone from that to now we have to celebrate it. That's not, that's not what we were supposed to be doing. Or we have to, or we have to feel guilty for not being, I mean, I'm, listen, I'm talking to a black woman, and I'm a white guy, I'm an evil white man, okay?

I mean, that's what's being taught in schools today. And I made a statement yesterday, I had Ed Brodo on yesterday, and he's written a book called The War on Whites. And we talked about that.

And I made a statement yesterday, and I said, I might get some people kind of riled up about this. But in 1854, the Republican Party was established for the purpose of defending the rights of black Americans to be able to vote to be able and what is not talked about, is the fact that from the 1700s forward, there were black Americans that owned land, owned property, owned successful businesses, were living the American dream, and you remember that the very first legal slavery lawsuit, war battle, was a black slave holder, who won, who basically won a court decision to keep someone a slave. Yeah, that's, I was about to say that, and had the slaves, too. But there's still slavery in Africa, like in Libya right now, somebody's being sold. In Syria, and not to mention sounds of freedom and the sex slave trafficking that's going on that we were gonna kind of try to get into today, but I mean, you know, there are more, my understanding as a member of the Save the Persecuted Christians Advisory Board is there are more slaves in number today in the world than ever in the history of mankind.

More slaves today. They're not in the United States. I think some of them are. Well, I know I agree. I mean, I'm what but what I'm saying, I agree with you. I mean, America is one of the number one human trafficking destinations in the world. No question.

85,000 kids. Yeah. That the government can.

No, I agree. What what I was trying to suggest is, is that, you know, like you were saying about your college experience, okay. You had one, you had people who, you know, you're like, they look like me, and they were getting all this free stuff.

Okay. Nobody was blocking their ability to get an education. Nobody was blocking their ability to live in those dormitories, go to the cafeteria, go to class, you know, finish their degree, nobody was, but nobody blocked you from being able to have success, and work hard and achieve the things that you have achieved, okay.

So to suggest that there's a system in place, that is, they're now in black neighborhoods, we could get into that conversation, we could talk about the drugs, we could talk about the prostitution, we could talk about the gangs, but but that's, that is a part of a there the culture that has been embraced, and you talked about right off the top with Sirius XM, and, and what they were playing, which was glorifying the things I just talked about and saying, that's how you should live. And what was what was kind of wild to me, is that it never stuck. Like even there was one experience I had in college, because apparently I was a big nerd. I didn't realize how nerdy I was.

But I'm hanging out with some friends, and they play this joke on me. And they start playing a pretty infamous rap group, very, very, very infamous in the 80s. And they start playing one of their songs, and I had never heard it before. And I am like, what is what is that?

What are you playing? This is horrible. Like, why is he saying these words? Are you even allowed to say that what is going on?

And they are, you know, all my friends are like in hysterics, right? I had no idea what a clearly approved I was, but I was and, you know, I just really was never attracted to that kind of thing is one thing, you know, I always kind of question like whether people are chosen or not, and it's a conversation for another day chosen by God, but I will tell you that it's been my experience that, despite my efforts to get away, I could there was nowhere to run and nowhere to hide. And believe me, I've been given it a good go. He's always pulling me back and providing me opportunities like this to draw closer to him. Oh, thank you, Jesus. And I'm always wondering, like, why are you doing this? Like, what are you doing? He loves you, Melanie. He loves you. And and we're gonna have to close our time together.

And this is a great place to close. Because the message not only he loves Melanie, he loves me, he loves you, those of you that are watching today, those of you that may have gotten trapped in the same things that tried to entrap Melanie, that have been tried to entrap all of us. I want you to know that Jesus Christ is the pathway out. He's the answer. He's the solution.

He will fix everything on the inside. Are you going to have challenges? Man, listen, I was in a car accident six years ago, let me tell you about challenges, okay.

But I'll tell you this. He gave me the faith to persevere. He gave me the faith to be able to come through the most devastating situation that you can face. And here I am today. And it's because of him and the faith that he put in me.

Not my faith, his faith activated in me. You can have that today as well. And tomorrow we'll talk about that when we do our service in India. But you can always reach out to me at the website, Melanie, thank you. What a wonderful thing to start. I am honored, really.

Like I said, I mean, listen, I tried not to do it. Not really. Right? Yeah.

But God was like, nope, this is happening, ma'am. You're doing this. Put it together.

Put it on. Yeah, put it on the calendar because this is the this is the deal. Well, I thank you so much for doing this.

And I'm excited. You know, I feel like God led our conversation today. He really did. He really led it. Thank you for being so transparent to with my audience and just sharing your story.

Because I believe that it's inspirational to those that are listening. So I thank you for that. Oh, you're very welcome.

Always tell the truth. There you go. That's it.

Don't worry about trying to figure out the lie. Exactly. All right. Hey, we're gonna take a break. We come back Greg Shoemaker and Rick Manning will join me Greg and has started restore law, which is helping merchants and businesses to recover for the losses they suffered when rioters and BLM and antifa were allowed to rampage their cities.

If you follow the news at all in the summer of 2020, you noted that there was insanity that took place.

The BLM and TIFA, actually it started even before that, you can go back to 2016, go back to Obama and his administration, the shooting of the police officers here in Texas up in Dallas where they were assassinated, and the marching in the street and the damage that was done there, the damage that was done in Ferguson, the damage that was done up in Maryland with the Freddie Gray situation, the damage that was done down in Florida with the Trayvon Martin, all of these instigated damage situations supported by local municipalities and others. And finally, there's someone that is working to, well, make them accountable. I want to welcome Greg Shoemaker to the program. Greg, welcome. Good to have you with me. Thanks for being here.

Thanks for having me. So Greg, now, are you, I didn't get this for sure, but are you an attorney? No, I'm not. Okay. I have a legal counsel, he's our team, and I'm the founder and president of Restore Law and Order. I saw that.

I saw that. So what, were you involved in law enforcement? Is that what got you into this? Or what was it that you, I mean, because... And I applaud you, by the way, I want you to know, I applaud what you're doing.

But there's been a lot of people that have, you know, kind of said, ah, it was terrible and it was bad and it was all these different things. But I haven't heard of anybody that's actually done what you've done in trying to put an organization together to help these businesses actually address what happened. So tell us a little bit about your background that got you engaged in this. Sure. And before I start out, I just want to get my website out there.

Of course. Which is,, and the company is Restore Law and Order. So to answer your question, I'll tell you what motivated me to start Restore Law and Order, which I started investigating this whole thing about three years ago when the riots and the lawlessness was happening in Portland, Oregon, and also across America. So I originally, I owned one of the oldest businesses in Portland, Oregon, which is Schumacher Furs USA.

We were established in 1895 and we're obviously in the fur business, manufacturers, wholesalers, et cetera. Year 2005 through 2007, our company got attacked by extremist groups for two years straight with zero law enforcement in Portland, Oregon. And it was bad.

I mean really bad. It was headline news every night. And the reason it brought so much news media and attention was that, number one, the longevity of the terrorism and the protests. We had recorded crimes for 520 hours on audio and video.

So 520 hours of crimes out of 1,250 hours of total protests and terrorism. Every time we called the police, FBI, whoever, they would not respond through all these instances that we went through from fire bombing to just everything. So to make a long story short, that lasted for two years and I ended up closing the business since 1895 with the oldest fur company in America. I ended up closing that business because I no longer could get insurance because of the terrorism. No one in the world would insert my company.

And great. Really quick, really quick, just insert this in so folks understand. So what made them target you? Was it PETA?

Was that the impetus or why did they go after you to start with? Sure. Well, there's a mixture of groups. I mean, they're very similar to the same. You've got your far left liberal groups out here. In this case, yes, some of it was animal rights groups, PETA, Humane Society's radical left wing radical groups. And then you had your anarchist and Antifa-like type groups, they weren't Antifa back then, or Black Lives Matter.

Again, this was 17 years ago. So what happened is, to fast forward about three years ago when the riots started in Portland, I started investigating and tracking all of the crimes that happened in Portland and Oregon and nationally where one of two things happened. Number one, a crime happened to a business or an individual or an organization. And when the crime happened, they called law enforcement and law enforcement did not respond. So we have all of that data.

Then the other situation is law enforcement did respond, usually late, and then did nothing once they came. So we have thousands and thousands of incidences of businesses from Nordstrom's to Starbucks to mom and pop shops in Portland and Oregon and across America. So what I did after that, we hold all this evidence, then I put a team of lawyers together, they're constitutional civil rights lawyers, they're specializing complex litigation civil rights matters such as this, and put a team, a legal team together. And so we have the evidence legal team, and then we have a public relations PR company, which is we're using that as our arm to publicize and expose everything that happened. So you get to the point here, we saw law and order, what we're doing is we are going to be implementing lawsuits against the city of Portland, the state of Oregon and government officials personally, okay, for violating their personal oath under the US Constitution. So this is a multi plaintiff lawsuit, it's totally unbiased, doesn't matter if you're liberal or conservative or whatever, or black, white or what religion you are. This is about, it's not a political move that we're doing here, this is a legal move that's holding people accountable for not upholding constitutional law, number one, court law, city ordinances, etc.

And so what we're doing in Portland, Oregon, the reason we're getting so much national attention is because no one's doing this, okay, except us. And we are the people with the evidence, and we're the people that have the strategies to make this happen. And the reason, I'll tell you real quick here, if I may, Pastor, why we're doing this. And two reasons. One is to reimburse the businesses and individuals for the money that's deserved, okay? They're entitled to reparations for the damages that they had, economic damages.

And the people that will be paying for that are going to be the city insurance companies and the state insurance companies, okay, whether it's a settlement or whether it's a, you know, so you're essentially subrogating on their behalf. Right, yeah, right. And then the second reason we're doing this, which is the most unique part of this is the following. And I'll give a little bit of explanation here. Here's what we believe here. We believe that the existing far left liberal politicians that are in office right now in sanctuary cities and states need to be removed. Okay. Okay. And the reason we think that is because, and it's proven, I can prove it and I don't even need to prove it.

You can just look out your door. They have not done anything to change as far as enforcing law. In other words, the same stuff that was happening three years ago still happened. This was not just in 2020.

It's happening right now. The DA's are releasing criminals. They're letting them go. They're not enforcing law. You've got murderers that are charged. Even here in Texas, I mean, I was just reading cases from current revolt about, you know, individuals that were one individual that was charged with murder and then was put out on bail.

I mean, just he came into the system, processed in and right back out onto the street. Right. Right. So, so what we're doing is, you know, this is involving not COVID, not COVID damage. Okay.

That's just too big. I get it. It's too hard, too hard to find damages.

This is specific to damage that was done by rioters who came in and looted their businesses, broke out their front windows, set fire to their businesses, you know, which interrupted their ability to do business, maybe, maybe threatened them in the days that followed that if they came back, they were going to get injured because it wasn't just a singular event in these cities either. And then you had the Chad. You had that whole Chad situation. Right.

Right. So, so what's interesting is getting back to where I left off for a moment, if I may, so we don't believe that politicians are going to do anything. So in other words, what I see every day, some of the wealthiest businessmen in America and in Portland and Oregon, they are constantly trying to convince the mayors and the city councils and the governor to change their mind, enforce the laws, do this and this. They have committees, they chat, nothing gets done.

They're wasting their time because these people have a certain liberal ideology and they don't care. Everyone needs to understand, Ted Wheeler in Portland, our mayor, does not care about Portland. He doesn't care.

If he cared, he would enforce the laws. Okay. Same with, same with governor. Same with our governor. Okay.

POTAC and it was Kate Brown, she's a total whack case. So most of my, most of the politicians are there and the same thing goes in New York and all these sanctuary cities. So we don't believe also, so how do you remove them? Well, the vote them out. Well, how are you going to vote them out when you have a bunch of liberal voters out there at number one and number two, you've got election fraud going on. Right. Okay. So what we're doing is besides reimbursing the businesses with the losses, economic losses, we feel that this is going to set a precedent for future candidates not to run for office once they see what happened to the predecessors and the consequences that they paid reputation, reputation wise, financially, and most likely to damage their careers. So what we're doing is we're using the existing, the existing politicians that are wrongdoing, we're exposing all their wrongdoings through our public relations company nationally. Okay. Expose them so other candidates will not run for office in the future if they want to carry on the same lawlessness as their predecessors. Okay.

So that is how you get permanent change, in my opinion. Rick Manning is with us also, my co-host in this segment. Rick, let me throw it to you if you have any questions for Greg at the moment. Sure. In Portland in particular, because I mean, I think a lot of us have followed what happened in Portland for the, you know, where it just had nonstop riots every night. What kind of response are you getting from police unions or anybody like that in terms of trying to step up and allow them to do their, actually do their job? Because my experience is the police unions, the average guy on the street, you know, police officer really wanted to enforce the law and they're not being allowed to. Are you getting much response from them? Not really, but I totally understand what you're saying. In other words, the police officers are trying to do their job.

Okay. And every time they will say, our hands are tied, we're told to stand down. That's usually the case. I mean, if you look at our evidence, it's unbelievable all the stand down orders that the mayor and the governor gave. So I, you know, in Portland, the mayor is the commissioner of the police department. So he runs the police department. So you know, he's totally responsible for and accountable for this damage, one of the people that is. We have police, we have sheriffs throughout Oregon.

We only find one sheriff out of 39 that actually upheld the constitutional law. The personal lawsuits that we're doing is under Title 42, Section 1983 of the U.S. Constitution, which basically says all government officials took a personal oath to uphold the laws of the U.S. Constitution. If they do not do so, they can be held personally accountable for the economic damages that were caused due to their negligence and wrongdoing.

Basically that's what it says. So we're holding them accountable. That's how we're suing them personally.

And it can be done and they are not immune. The governor and the mayor and these people are not immune, regardless of how many people you talk to. If you just googled Title, if you just googled, one of our attorneys just googled 1983 and mayors.

Okay. So about 85 mayors have been sued under that 83 law, okay, 1983 law. Just that's just mayors against city councilmen. So you know, and the main reason the plaintiffs that are coming aboard and we're looking just so you know, we're looking for donations. We need money and you can go to, go to the donate button. Anything you donate is anonymous. We set up this company so people are anonymous. If they want to be, so other people won't know, it's not public information. The plaintiffs we believe will be also anonymous as we think, and it's not 100%, but we think that the judges are going to seal this case, okay, for the plaintiffs that are coming on board. And at least that's the hope, right?

Is that they would, I can't guarantee that, okay. The damages that if you're, you can become a plaintiff if you have the following of this real quick here, if you have devalued, these are the two major reasons, devaluation of property, commercial, residential, or industrial. In other words, if you bought property four years ago prior to all this, or owned it four years ago, and wanted to sell it four years ago, you could sell it for a certain price. Now what can you sell it for, okay?

If you can even sell it. I mean, the vacancy rate in Portland is 33%, 34% of commercial property. I mean, they can't even lease out buildings, let alone sell them. So that is a huge loss.

The other loss is business loss of gross revenues, and loss and decline of net profits of a business, whether it's a mom and pop coffee shop, or whether it's Nordstrom's, or Standard Insurance, whatever it may be, or Nike for that matter. So those are the two ones, and plus physical damage to the building, and then losses due to lack of tourism. Who wants to come to Portland enabled, okay?

So you know, that's another one. Now, are you creating a model here, Greg, that you are intending you'll be able to roll out across the country? And if so, are there any other communities right now that you're looking at? Are you looking at Ferguson? Are you looking at the Maryland area where, you know, where the issues happen with the whole Freddie Gray situation? Are there other communities across the country that experience Wisconsin comes to mind as well? Are there other communities across the country where BLM and ANTIFA triggered these kinds of things and destroyed businesses and so on? And those communities are having the same issue? Right.

I'll answer that question. By the way, again, we don't think ANTIFA, Black Lives Matter, and these thugs, these far left radicals are the problem. They're part of the problem. Real problem-wise, and the government officials not enforcing the law and doing their job, that includes DA's, mayors, city councilmen, governors.

Well, look at our current administration, President Biden. Was he enforcing the laws? No.

Right. Violating the Constitution every day. Stu, to answer your question, yeah, we are, and thank you for asking that, we are setting a model in Portland, Oregon. We have, right now, we have plaintiffs in Portland, we have plaintiffs in Seattle. I've gotten getting calls out of Arizona, I'm getting calls out of Baltimore.

So we launched this about a month ago, Pastor, and even though I've been working on it for all these years, we launched the company about then, and we just, I mean, right now, as soon as we launched in Portland, Oregon, we're getting national attention, we're going to the national administration. Well, Portland is, for what, let me ask you this, you're in that area. I've got friends that pastor a church there in Vancouver, and I have a very close friend, he was in my wedding, actually, that lived just outside of Portland there for a number of years. But why do you think Portland is an epicenter?

Why there? Why Portland? Well, you know, keep Portland weird, is what they're saying, okay?

They're doing that in Austin, they're doing that in Austin too, as San Francisco. I think it's because of the lax government that we have here. The homeless problem is huge, and the reason the homeless problem is huge is because we basically do things to invite more homeless people to come, okay? And you know, the homeless problem and all the rest of the violence, the crime, the riots, the illegal protests, all these are the problems that we have. But I think the reason Portland, I think it's an escalation over a period of time of a lot of allowing and being lawless that invites this liberal, radical lawlessness in Portland, which contributes to, I think, what we're dealing with right now. We're seeing this in other cities and states. I remember, you know, 20, 25 years ago, kids that were graduating with, well, 20 years ago with my older kids, and conversations with them that, you know, Portland was just kind of a free kind of a place where you could just kind of go and, you know, do whatever you wanted to do, and there was, you know, it was just kind of, you know, and I don't want to pick on a particular grouping, but the idea of kind of a hippie culture, kind of a communal culture, kind of a everybody does their own thing and nobody messes with you and, like you said, there's no rules, so to speak.

They can do whatever they want. I got to tell you, when I went through that terrorism protest, the 520 hours, it was unbelievable. Remember, we were the only business back then getting targeted, not the rest of businesses. And I was on national news broadcasts, and I was telling everyone across the nation, same thing that's happened to me is going to happen to other businesses. I said, this is not a fur issue, this is an ideology issue of our government officials.

And nothing has changed for 17 years. And you know, my goal here, I'm very passionate about this, our whole team. It's unusual to have attorneys, if I may, passionate, and we're really in for the cause of it. You know, I mean, we got to get honesty back.

We got to get transparency back in our, not just Portland and Oregon, in our whole community. We know this is for not necessarily you and I at our age, it's for our kids, it's for our grandchildren. Well, yeah, we got, we're trying to write No, it is we're trying to make I mean, you know, I, I came out of an accident six years ago, and literally three months to the day, and the only thing I could do was literally hold the cell phone.

And and that answer. And so I started back doing my show, the day I got out of the hospital three months after my accident, holding the phone, and the and the board op that volunteered was doing all the calls and connecting the guests. But it was it's because I'm, you know, I've God called me to do this, but I'm fighting for the children. I'm fighting for my kids. I've got five kids.

The last one is 16 now. And I'm fighting for my grandkids. I've got three grandkids 11, seven and three, I if we don't do this right now, and restore our constitutional republic, we're, we're done.

We're done. And I think, again, I think this look at if you go to these sanctuary cities, New York, whatever, okay. I truly believe I think there are a couple people that can rise above this election fraud in 2024.

But I think in most cases, that's not going to happen. I think we're getting the same old stuff is that this election fraud is not fixed yet. And again, you have the doctoration of these people out there with this liberal ideology. Okay, they're going out and voting these radicals in. Now, Greg, you can't say that we have election fraud. You know that they're there. You're not allowed to say election fraud.

They don't, they don't let us know you can say election fraud on this program on this network. But, but here, but the rest of them are like, Oh, he's one of those he's one of those. I Yeah, I really don't care what they think. Okay. I know. I mean, they're right here.

I know God's on my side. Amen. Amen.

Back in the school system. All right. We're, we're gonna have about one minute here before we're gonna before we're gonna be out of time in our segment here. Again, we want folks to go to restore law and restore law and Give me two action steps in 60 seconds. Okay, go to the Donate button and donate money. Okay, if you donate five bucks, it's great.

This is for a good cause we are putting this money into the cause we are trying to fix Orland and Oregon, which is going to fix the other cities and states where you live the people. Right? Yes. Right.

Right. So donate. It's anonymous. People won't know unless you want to know you donate to our pack. Okay. We can donate it to restore law and order.

Restore law and order. It's anonymous. Then become a plaintiff. Just fill out the information there. Go to the email.

It's no big deal. Just fill it out. If you think you might be a plaintiff. We'll call you back.

Gotcha. So if you are a business that was impacted, an owner of a business, an employee of a business, if you were economically impacted by these issues, and we're right now they're in Portland, but they've also got if you if you were impacted in Arizona, if you were impacted in Maryland, if you were impacted in Ferguson, if you were impacted in New York, wherever you are, if you were impacted by these actions, if you were impacted in Dallas, if you were impacted, they want to help you go to restore law and Fill out the plaintiff information. They'll reach back to you. And you can start the process. And and that's the key.

Get out of the boat. Right. Right. And we're first going to just screen that they're a candidate. There you go.

Easy process for them. Yep. All right. Thank you so very much. I appreciate it.

Greg Shoemaker, founder, restore law and And Rick, I know you weren't feeling great today. But thank you for hanging with me.

And I really believe this is an important introduction for you guys to be connected relative to what Greg is doing. And I'll make sure that I get that. So hang tight. Don't go anywhere, gentlemen. I'll be I'll be back. Tyran Rose is going to be with me on the other side, again, exposing fake news and censorship. We'll be back right after this.
