Our guest today is Steve Pomper. Steve is an author, freelance writer, and retired Seattle police officer. During his career, he served as a field training officer, on the Community Police Team, and as a mountain bike patrol coordinator. He has written several books, and his latest title is “The Obama Gang: How Barack Obama, through his post-presidency foundation, assembled, launched, and wages the new assault on American law enforcement”. 1) Before we dive into your new book...my favorite line on your website is: “What’s the Most Government Can Do for Me? The Least Government Can Do for Me.” That is a very Libertarian stance. You have also been a Law Enforcement Officer. There are more than a few people who would say that those are competing mindsets. For you, how do those two things mesh together? 2) Let’s talk about your book, “The Obama Gang”. 3) Tell us about your article in LifeZette, titled “Is the FBI Misreporting Data About Legal Gun Owners Stopping Active Shooters?” 4) Back in November you wrote an article titled, “Cops’ Free Speech Rights: Like Walking Through a Minefield—Barefoot—On Crushed Glass”. And, recently, Nate Sylvester an ID police officer made a comical video pretending to ask LeBron James if it was ok to stop a knife fight. That officer was fired for making a funny TikToc video. Can you expound on what you wrote in your article?

John Stossel. In 2005, Steve sold his first national article to American Iron Magazine a motorcycle publication. He’d long focused on non-fiction, primarily from a political and law enforcement perspective, but he decided to broaden his focus. Steve wrote a novel and, in early 2007, he felt it was ready to leave home. He found an agent, who, after declining the novel, asked Steve about a non-fiction project he’d mentioned in his query. The agent liked the idea and soon sold the book, Is There a Problem, Officer? A Cop’s Guide to Avoiding Traffic Tickets. The Lyon’s Press in Guilford, CT. published the book. After publishing, Is There a Problem, Officer?, Lyon’s parent imprint, the Globe-Pequot Press, contracted Steve to write two more books: Seattle Curiosities, It Happened in Seattle. His most recent books are De-Policing America: A Street Cop’s View of the Anti-Police State, released by Post Hill Press in April, 2018 and The Obama Gang, published by the National Police Association, March/April 2021.

Originally from New England, he’s a Boston sports fan. He now lives in the Pacific Northwest with his wife, Jody, a retired firefighter. He enjoys spending time with his adult kids and three grandchildren.
