Crom’s Crommentary: Union Boss Randi Weingarten and the Demise of the Republic

Nov 30, 2022

Live from Music Row, Monday 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 the original all-star panelist Crom Carmichael to the studio for another edition of Crom’s Crommentary.


Michael, in the notable and quotable section of The Wall Street Journal of November 22nd, the former Secretary of State was doing an interview and this is what he said, and I’m quoting here. “I get asked who is the most dangerous person in the world? Is it Chairman Kim? Is it Xi Jinping?

The most dangerous person in the world is Randi Weingarten. It’s not a close call. If you ask who’s the most likely to take down this republic, it would be the teachers’ unions and the filth that they’re teaching our kids.

These are the things that candidates should speak to in ways that say, here’s a problem, here’s a proposal of how to solve it. And if given the opportunity, these are the things I will work on to try to deliver outcomes that fix the problem.”

Here’s Mike Pompeo, who is likely to run for president, who is saying the most dangerous person to our country is the head of one of the two teachers’ unions, Randi Weingarten. And I happen to agree.

I put Randi Weingarten in a higher-order category of destruction for our country than any terrorist you can name. The terrorists who brought down the Trade Center killed 3,000 people.

Randi Weingarten and her ilk are destroying the lives of millions of people and millions of children. And she’s proud of it. And I say that because if you look at the results and that’s what you should be looking at. Let me say this.

If the government ran our grocery stores the same way that the government runs our schools, what would our grocery stores deliver? What would be the results? And the answer is they would deliver terrible food that was spoiled.

And we’d have 10s of millions of people starving to death because the government would be running our grocery stores. But if the government ran our grocery stores, the failure would be so apparent that people would rise up and they would stop that.

But because the government runs our schools and is controlled by unions that are controlled by Randi Weingarten, the public does not seem to be as concerned. The school board wins are nice, but they’re window-dressing.

They’re not going to accomplish anything until you have a politician who is elected president who calls Randi Weingarten out for exactly what she is and calls the teachers’ unions out for exactly what they are.

And like Biden has, in this sense, used a whole-of-government approach to go after his issues. I don’t agree with his issues, but I think his tactics are the ones that the tactics that a Republican president should use if one is elected.

Michael Patrick Leahy: Gov. Bill Lee’s 18 Separate Bills Are a Smoke Screen to Jam Through Red Flag Gun Control Laws During Special Session

The Tennessee Star Report host Michael Patrick Leahy took to the airwaves Monday morning to break down Governor Bill Lee’s call for an “extraordinary” special session.

By looking into the recent past, Leahy shows listeners how Lee’s “laundry list” of eighteen line items are little more than a smoke screen to hide the central purpose of the August 21 session, which is to pass legislation that will fundamentally alter the nature of gun ownership in Tennessee.
