Live from Music Row, Friday 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.
Biden gave a speech, I guess what, Wednesday night, and so you and I haven’t had a chance to discuss it. But there were a couple of things about this speech that are worth noting. There are two things. There’s a level of desperation in the speech and in Obama’s speech and all the commentators.
Essentially the world will end if Republicans retake the House. And so they’re claiming, yelling and screaming about our democracy at a time of voting, which the irony of that is, well, it’s actually just way over my head that they do that.
But Biden said one thing that was interesting. He said, now, do not question the election. Under no circumstance are you allowed to question the election of next Tuesday. You cannot do it. Oh, and by the way, it may take days to count the votes.
Those two things in combination, if I was going to cheat, I would have to know how many votes I needed in order to win the election, and then I would have to have time in order to somehow work them into the system.
And I think that part was read off the teleprompter. I don’t think he said that just kind of on a whim on his own. If he did, then you could excuse it for his kind of ineptitude in the way he talks. But this was read off his teleprompter, so it was part of the speech.
And so that is a great concern to me because in every election cycle except the very last one, which was done during COVID in every other one, we haven’t had any trouble, especially in the midterms, counting votes and getting the answers in.
And the winner was selected on the night of the vote. We’ve had no problem at all. And so all of a sudden, under the Biden administration, somehow we’re being warned. Two things: One is it may take many days. It may take many days.
Oh, and by the way, even if it does take many days, you cannot question the results. No matter what the results are, you cannot question them. And then I read that in Michigan, for example, there are 25,000 dead people that are knowingly still on the voter rolls and the Secretary of State up there is a Democrat, and she is fighting in court to keep the 25,000 dead people on the voter rolls.
Now, why on earth would you do that if you know that they’re there unless you want to use dead people to cheat? That is not even rational. There is no other possible explanation for keeping dead people on the voter rolls than I want to keep them on there so I can vote in their names.
But the Republicans up there are wise to it. They’ve gone through the voter rolls, and they’ve identified the 25,000 dead people. And so if those people come in and register to vote, the Republicans, I think, are ready for that.
And then the question is, what do you do to people who knowingly cheat? And so while I believe that the public is completely exasperated with the Democrat policies of inflation, economy, jobs, crime, the border, and education, there’s just not hardly anything in our daily lives the Democrats haven’t wrecked.
I’ve got friends who are Democrats. The friends I have who are Democrats would not be doing what the national party is doing. But unfortunately, the voters have to look at what the national party is doing in the House and the Senate.
And in this case, we can’t vote on the presidency, but we can vote on every House seat, and we can vote on many Senate seats. And so that will be reflected. But in those states that don’t report on the night of the election, you have to assume that because that’s never happened before in a midterm, there is a reason that those states are not able to count the votes and report the votes on the night of the election.
And I fear that the only rational way to look at that is to assume that they are not able to on purpose. Which means they’re trying to figure out a way to cheat.
