Live from Music Row Thursday morning on The Tennessee Star Report with Michael Patrick Leahy – broadcast on Nashville’s Talk Radio 98.3 and 1510 WLAC weekdays from 5:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. – host Leahy welcomed all-star panelist and senior editor-at-large at The Epoch Times, Roger Simon, in-studio to weigh in on the decline of Joe Biden, his administration, and the Andrew Cuomo sexual harassment case.
(Jen Psaki clip plays)
Leahy: There is the worst liar in American history, Jen Psaki. The purported press secretary for the Biden maladministration, saying something that’s just massively stupid. Roger, what would be the very first thing you would do? The most common sense thing you could do to help stop the spread of COVID?
Simon: Close the border. Period. End of story. I mean, of course. Something’s going on, something smells. There is a fake-out to the public here that is huge. It’s not even subtle. I mean, how anyone can believe this is beyond me. And maybe a lot of people don’t. But we’re used to being sheep.
Leahy: It’s a deliberate policy.
Simon: Yes. How can it not be?
Leahy: Yeah, exactly right. And if you look around, the array of liars of dishonest people is astonishing. From the CDC director who just says one stupid thing after stupid thing. Now the sergeant general, the sergeant general is saying something stupid.
Simon: Yes. It appears that they’re ready to vaccinate the kids. Now, that is particularly crazy, since we don’t know what these vaccines really do. They are mRNA vaccines and they could be affecting reproductive organs and things down the line.
We don’t even know that. It’s like we are living in the Middle Ages with superstitions running on. But there’s something else running on it and it’s called m-o-n-e-y.
Simon: I’d love to quote the great H.L. Mencken. When somebody says it’s not about the money, it’s about the money.
Leahy: H.L. Mencken a great American journalist from the 1920s who documented the famous Scopes trial here in Tennessee back in the 1920s. You make a very excellent point. It’s interesting you talk about the similarities between the Biden maladministration, the world as it exists today, and the Middle Ages when everything was anti-science back then.
Leahy: And anti-fact. I hear some of these “scientists” talk, and I think: you’re just a propagandist. You’re not a scientist.
Simon: They’re either under the pay of somebody. (Chuckles) It’s not directed, but it’s very clear. You play by the rules, we support you. You don’t play by the rules. We don’t support you. The same way unions work.
Leahy: The whole concept of principle seems to be gone, and now everything’s being replaced by a sort of tribalism. And the tribes in the United States at the top are the elite, the Big Tech guys, the Democrats. And maybe, is that what is that? Ten percent of the country, five percent of the country telling the rest of the country what to do?
Simon: Maybe two percent.
Simon: The word elites always disturbs me too. It disturbed Donald Trump, too. I remember in a couple of speeches he was pointing at the audience and saying, you’re the elites, because they’re not really elites. They’re just bullies.
Leahy: That’s a good point. By the way, story at The Tennessee Star. I’d like to get your reaction to this. Headline: Texas Congressman Calls for the Impeachment of Biden Over Immigration Policy.
Texas Republican Congressman Chip Roy is calling for the impeachment of President Joe Biden and the impeachment of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, citing their “reckless immigration policy” that many lawmakers argue is endangering the lives of Texans and Americans. What’s your reaction to that?
Simon: Well, I support it, but good luck to him. But obviously, Biden is taking over. Probably not at his own behest. I wonder who’s really behind it all?
Leahy: Who is manipulating Biden’s brain? That is functioning below-average level.
Simon: Barack Obama. I think it’s second degree. Goes through Susan Rice. She’s sitting there in the White House and passing it on.
Leahy: That’s a good theory.
Simon: That’s my theory about have – it’s only a theory.
Leahy: So Joe has always been, you know …
Simon: A yes man.
Leahy: A yes man. Has he ever had an original thought? All of his thoughts are whatever the party says? Other than to make money from your family.
Simon: There is an interesting video, I think it’s still on YouTube before being blocked. There’s an interview with Clarence Thomas about when Biden was interrogating him during his confirmation hearings in 1991.
And Biden was saying collegially uncloaked to Clarence Thomas. You and I understand this point because we’re both lawyers. Thomas said he didn’t have a clue what Biden meant. (Laughs) Biden is not the brightest bulb. He wasn’t the brightest bulb then and it’s dimming.
Leahy: He went to Syracuse University Law School, and he was in the bottom third of his class.
Simon: Lower than that. And he actually plagiarized. He didn’t plagiarize as people do in college very often, like a slight paragraph because they’re not very smart.
Leahy: And don’t know how to cite it.
Simon: He just copied an entire legal brief page to page. (Leahy laughs) In law school! Think about that one.
Leahy: That kind of gives you an insight. I think if you look into his pattern of behavior, he basically was sort of like a high school athlete type guy, and he thought he was the coolest guy in town and didn’t really hit the books that much, from what I can tell.
He’s social. Very social. Just ask Tara Reid. (Laughs) Tara Reid is the woman who accused him of sexually harassing her. But apparently, the only sexual harassment stories that he focuses on right now have to do with Andrew Cuomo.
Simon: Yes. Because Cuomo is so ganged up on that Biden has to go that way.
Leahy: Where does the Cuomo story end up in your view? What’s your best guess?
Simon: This is one case where he actually might be impeached. I think he’ll be impeached.
Leahy: Will he be convicted?
Simon: He might be convicted of impeachment.
Leahy: I’m kind of with you on that. He’s gonna fight it all the way.
Simon: Of course. (Inaudible talk)
