Crom Carmichael Breaks Down the Mind of Joe Biden, FDR, and the Great Depression

Crom Carmichael Breaks Down the Mind of Joe Biden, FDR, and the Great Depression

 

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 to discuss Joe Biden’s failed policymaking through his 50-year career and elements related to the Great Depression.

Leahy: We are venturing into a very scary place. A very scary place. The mind of Joe Biden.

Carmichael: Well, he’s been in politics for close to 50 years. As far as I know, he’s never been right once.

Leahy: (Chuckles) You’re right. You’re correct.

Carmichael: On domestic policy, on foreign policy. And now that I’ve seen this story now, and it makes sense. And if you listen to the way he talks about this emergency and that emergency and we must do this, we must do that. When Roosevelt was President in the 30s, and he was trying to get out of the depression, Roosevelt saw government action as a way to get out of the depression. So he had all these make-work programs.

Leahy: CCC. NRA.

Carmichael: And that’s not the National Rifle Association.

Leahy: It’s a National Recovery Administration which the Supreme Court ruled unconstitutional.

Carmichael: He wanted to make the federal government like a Communist state.

Leahy: Kind of fascist, actually, I would say.

Carmichael: Well, that’s fair. But what I’m saying is I don’t see much of a distinction in terms of the power of government between fascists and communists.

Leahy: And I think you’re right. The difference is under fascism, the large corporations and the government act as one often. The National Recovery Administration that General Hugh Johnson was put in charge of, that’s what they did. They made all these rules that crushed the little guy. Sound familiar?

Carmichael: Well, I’m also saying, though, is Roosevelt got a 94 percent tax rate, which the means of production therefore, as far as Roosevelt was concerned, the country would be better off if the government controlled the means of production (i.e. all the money). And then determine how best to allocate it. And that concept will not work. And the reason it won’t work is the fundamental aspect, the most important thing of a market economy is it signals the capital markets on where money should go.

Leahy: Thousands and hundreds of thousands of individual movements.

Carmichael: Decisions that are informational in nature. Whereas if you get either a corporation with a monopoly, AT&T. Before Jimmy Carter broke up AT&T, AT&T thought that they were the best-run company in the world.

Leahy: Well, of course, they were, Crom.

Carmichael: They were a monopoly. And so there wasn’t any way to dispute that claim. There also wasn’t any way to prove that claim because there was no competition. And so if you’re the only player, then you can say you’re the best – but you may be the worst.

Leahy: I believe you had a conversation with a senior executive there.

Carmichael: Just sitting on an airplane.

Leahy: And he told you…

Carmichael: That long-distance rates would go through the roof.

Leahy: If it was deregulated.

Carmichael: No, after because deregulation had happened. And he was furious. And he’s the one who claimed that AT&T was the most efficiently run company in the world. And he said if you think your long-distance rates are high now, and by the way, back then, they could be 25 cents a minute.

Leahy: They were. I remember paying bills just before the break-up when I was doing long-distance costs were three or 400 dollars a month. Just ridiculous.

Carmichael: And that’s three or 400 dollars back then. That would be like $1,000, now. And now long distance is free. It comes with your package. So he was wrong.

Leahy: Pretty good deal.

Carmichael: He was wrong but he thought he was right. And that’s the key here. He thought he was right. And so Joe Biden looks at FDR and you have all these people on the left who claim that FDR was a great President because he got us out of the depression. But the fact of the matter is, he didn’t get us out of the depression. The Second World War got us out of the depression. Now, did Roosevelt make some courageous decisions in regard to the war?

Leahy: As a commander in chief.

Carmichael: You can argue that he did.

Leahy: Yes.

Carmichael: Now you can argue if you want to be really woke, you can also argue that FDR was a racist because of the internment camps.

Leahy: Interned 40,000 Japanese Americans on the West Coast for four or five years.

Carmichael: So if you want to take that one thing and so that’s the focus on FDR, then you could claim that he was terrible. But that’s not my point here. The war, I’m going to say he did many things that were right. And the greatest generation defeated Hitler and the axis of powers.

Leahy: Just for a moment, a tip of the hat to all of those young guys back in the 1940s. Guys who were 18, 19, 20, or early 20s, had courage. I was watching Saving Private Ryan over the weekend and what happened on D-Day.

Carmichael: Well, Band of Brothers is a wonderful documentary. But at any rate, all through the 30s, FDR was trying to use central planning to get us out of the depression. And we had a second depression in 1937 and 1938.

Leahy: Very bad. It was a terrible depression again. So we never really got out until the war. The problem is that Biden doesn’t realize that. And so Biden thinks he’s trying to make himself out to be one of the great presidents of all time. Here’s a guy who literally can’t think anymore. But even when he could think…

Leahy: He didn’t

Carmichael: He didn’t think well. He’s surrounded by a bunch of handlers who also believe in central planning and who also believe more or less in a fascist form of government. But when you listen to him talk like the COVID Relief Bill, that’s what it was named. Nine percent of it was for COVID relief. 91 percent was for a bunch of other things.

Roy Blunt the Senator from Missouri was on one of the talk programs this Sunday, and he says that Republicans can support 30 percent of the infrastructure bill because 30 percent is for real infrastructure. 70 percent is not for infrastructure. So, Roy Blunt said, if Biden wants a bipartisan bill, then he should introduce the 30 percent that truly is for infrastructure.

Then if he wants to try to cram through a bunch of other stuff that’ll break the economy and cause inflation, let him do that. So Republicans want to support infrastructure, which is about $650 million of a two-point-two trillion dollar bill. But they’re going to try to jam the whole thing through.

Leahy: Oh, they’re going to try and jam it through. And by the way, if you oppose it and if you oppose left-wing type stuff…

Carmichael: Major League baseball will get mad at you.

Leahy: Exactly.

America’s Sheriff AJ ‘Andy’ Louderback Weighs in on Dangers of Gutted Trump Policies Creating Surge at Southern Border

America’s Sheriff AJ ‘Andy’ Louderback Weighs in on Dangers of Gutted Trump Policies Creating Surge at Southern Border

 

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 Jackson County, Texas Sheriff, AJ ‘Andy’ Louderback to the newsmakers line to weigh in on the crisis at the nations southern border and Biden’s unraveling of Trump policies.

Leahy: We are joined on our newsmaker line now by our friend, Sheriff AJ Louderback from Jackson County, Texas. Welcome, Sheriff Louderback.

Louderback: Good morning. Good morning.

Leahy: You and I met back, I think, a year and a half ago when you were in Washington, D.C., with a group of folks that were part of the Federation for American Immigration Reform. And right then you talked about the problems on the border. Since the inauguration of Joe Biden on January 21st, what’s happened to Jackson County? You’re about halfway between Corpus Christi and Houston. What have you seen that’s different in the past two months?

Louderback: I guess the best place to start is with these policies that have Joe Biden’s signature on them. We went from a very stable border to mass chaos here in Texas. So in the interior of Texas, where ICE has been completely nullified from their activities to the point where they have to even call a supervisor and have written express authorization to do almost anything.

We’re feeling the effects here as all Texas towns and towns throughout the United States are where we have people coming through again. We have illegal aliens showing up on people’s door steps from bailouts. We’re having our trucks stolen here in this area. We live geographically on the major corridor into Houston, Texas. And so it’s the number one human trafficking corridor and huge narcotics trafficking hub of Houston as they spread out to the rest of the United States. So it’s again: where to start, Michael?

It’s the same thing over except this one is much more pronounced and much stronger. ICE and CBP have both been completely taken out of the picture. I used the term gutted back in the Obama administration, and I don’t have a better word today other than they’ve done a much more thorough job of nullifying the federal law about this through policies and executive orders.

Leahy: Would you say the big administration is violating our immigration law?

Louderback: Clearly. They’re completing now through the NGO programs the final leg of the journey into the United States that the cartels used to do, and the cartels are still doing it. But the U.S. government is essentially complicit in that or however, you want to call it. But in McAllen, Texas, which have numerous friends on border patrol and ICE and so forth, and I get the video he sent to me and long been a proponent of a secure border.

I just think that that’s essential to having a country. And obviously, I’m in disagreement with the administration where we have no borders. I call it a zero border today. And we feel the effects here as every state will feel the effects as more and more come in and are transported into the cities and counties across our nation.

Leahy: If the federal government is going to not enforce immigration law, what role can the state government, what role can county governments, and county sheriffs like you, what can you do to stop that?

Louderback: It’s a fascinating area. That’s the one I’ve explored extensively over the years because, obviously our founding fathers I consider much about this as far as a border state and states rights. That’s exactly what the governor can do in the state of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California. So I know it’s being explored extensively.

I’ve seen some things out of our Texas governor here, Greg Abbott, and expecting some more. Our Texas AG here has lashed back with lawsuits on the deportation. And we were able to get a 100-day pause on that or so. It appears right now that we don’t have a lot of options or options that are actually being exercised. So waiting on that and exploring that and urging states to pay back in this issue as we become invaded here over and over with a steady stream of people.

Leahy: Sheriff Louderback, I saw that here is an idea from somebody who doesn’t live on the border, but who looks at what states can and cannot do. I saw that Governor Abbott deployed about 500 Texan National Guardsman to be on the border. Was that effective? Is there an opportunity to do more of that kind of thing or not?

Louderback: Well, Michael, I think it has value. Is it the most effective? I’m not sure. I’m glad that something’s being done. And I’m sure the extra help is certainly needed down there. They need resources and those guys are already exhausted. They’re demoralized to the point where imagine you went from a secure and stable border to a policy that completely destroys everything you’ve worked for, for the last two years with policies, no matter if anybody liked them.

The border hadn’t been that stable. And I like that word because the border is a unique area between any country. And it was very stable. We didn’t have any problems. It was more stable and had been in probably 50 years as far as the policies that were in place by the Trump administration. The military was down there and he sent extra troopers down there under Operation Loan Star.

The state lacks the ability currently to be able to turn back the tide and say, look, go back into Mexico and we’re going to restore some type of order on legal immigration coming into this country. Border security under its basic concept would be you were able to do that exactly the way we’ve been doing it in the last two years. So instead, we have mass chaos.

Leahy: If the President of the United States does not enforce existing administration in immigration law, in your opinion, is that an impeachable offense?

Louderback: Well, for me, certainly. I’m a strong advocate for a secure border, and I think you should be able here in the United States to control who comes into your country and who doesn’t? Just the very concept of that is just very basic to me. Very fundamental. As far as being a country obviously, there are people who disagree with that. We shall feel the effects of this. We already are.

The cartel grows ever stronger and enriched by these policies to the point where I don’t think most Americans understand the amount of money that the cartels have and their business model which is one of the most efficient in the world. And I don’t think most Americans understand exactly the types of money and how they profit from this policy here. So we actually have a war going on now on both sides because there is so much money involved. The cartels will actually even fight each other.

They’ll fight law enforcement. They’ll fight Mexican law enforcement. They sent two over here the other day to kill a law enforcement officer in the United States around the Yuma-Cochise County Arizona area. One was captured. I’m not sure if they capture the other one yet, but there are explicit orders from the cartel to take out at least one U.S. police officer.

Leahy: Was the U.S. police officer hurt in that?

Louderback: No. One was intercepted. But intelligence was very clear on it as to what was going on. So it resulted in a four-day search or so. Again, this is in Arizona from the sheriffs there that relayed this to Texas authorities that certain areas where the cartel gets upset with things and then they’re certainly able to put hits out on just about anybody they want.

Leahy: Sheriff Louderback of Jackson County, Texas. Please come back in about a month and tell us if it’s gotten better or worse. Thanks for joining us this morning.

Louderback: That’s good. Thank you, Sir.

Star News Network’s Washington Correspondent Neil W. McCabe Weighs in on House Anti-Gun Vote and If Biden Will Fall or Fail in Upcoming Press Conference

Star News Network’s Washington Correspondent Neil W. McCabe Weighs in on House Anti-Gun Vote and If Biden Will Fall or Fail in Upcoming Press Conference

 

Live from Music Row Wednesday 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 Tennessee Star National Correspondent Neil W. McCabe to the newsmakers line to weigh in on the potential anti-gun vote in the House and whether or not President Biden will fall and fail at tomorrow’s press conference.

Cunningham: Crom, we’ve got Neil back on the line. Neil thanks so much for calling in again. I know you are overseas. Hopefully, you can hear us ok.

McCabe: Absolutely.

Cuningham: Great.

McCabe: Let me just say that obviously, what’s gripping Washington right now is the shooting in Boulder, Colorado. And President Joe Biden is now coming out of the shadows. He has been hesitant to make a push to restrict gun rights, but he feels the confidence to exploit the crisis and make that push. And he’s going to run into some significant headwinds in the Democratic Party. You were talking before about Joe Manchin.

There are five Democratic senators who are up in 2022 who won with less than 52 percent of the vote. I’ll just read them off for you: Colorado, Mike Bennett, New Hampshire, Maggie Hassan, Nevada, Catherine Cortez Masto, Arizona, Mark Kelly, and then Georgia, Raphael Warnock. These are five senators in culturally conservative states who do not want to take a gun vote.

And Schumer has been very good about protecting his Democratic senators from having to take bad votes on abortion, immigration and guns. And so it’ll be very tricky to see if the president pushes this thing. It will go through the House and Nancy Pelosi has a tight grip on the House. She will pass whatever she wants to restrict gun rights in the House. But those are five senators right there who do not want to take an anti-gun vote.

Cunningham: Can we depend on the Republicans to stay with us?

McCabe: There’s always going to be Republicans who flake. Of course, the Republican leadership, the staffers, and the consultants they’re all culturally left-wing. They are opposed to gun rights. They think that people who support gun rights are nut jobs. And so they’re personally hostile to it. And there’s a lot of social pressure in Washington, D.C. to sort of go along to get along. But as I’ve said this before, I wouldn’t count on McConnell to advance anything from step one to step two.

Cunningham: Hallelujah.

McCabe: But on defense, there is no equal. And so if McConnell can hold the line long enough so that these Democrats start to flake, that’s where you’re going to have a problem because there’s a razor-sharp margin in the House. And it’s more so in the Senate and they might run into some problems. The other problem you run into is that Biden hasn’t even given a State of Union address.

And so that’s supposed to be the kick-off of his legislative season. The Biden administration is running out of runway. And I’ve written about this in The Tennessee Star, and I’ve talked about it before. But this three trillion-dollar infrastructure bill, there just isn’t enough runway to get it done. And so your program is already getting stalled out.

You’re already running into problems where he’s having trouble getting his people confirmed. He doesn’t even have a confirmed director of Office of Management and Budget. And to throw a gun vote in the middle of all this is just going to create chaos. And that’s sort of been the hallmark of Biden’s career. And it’s the hallmark of his failed presidential campaign, chaos. And that’s what we’re starting to see right now in Washington.

Cunningham: Well, I sure hope you’re right about the gun legislation. I hope we can push that off. By the way, Neil, congratulations on your scoop of the John Kerry Photo on the plane. That was amazing.

McCabe: Was that fun? (Laughs)

Cunningham: It showed for everybody in one clean photo, the hypocrisy of the left, and it was just a beautiful thing. Thank you. As a reader of The Tennessee Star, thank you so much for that scoop. Crom’s got a question, but I just want to ask you real quickly, do you know anything about the press conference tomorrow? Everybody’s got so much anticipation about how it’s going to come off. Are the questions going to be given to him in advance? You got any information about how that’s going to happen? Surely they’re going to try to protect him.

McCabe: It’s we saw that during the debate. He had an iPad with him that was basically feeding him answers live. And so we’ll see if they’re able to feed him the answers that he needs. It’s really going to be interesting because the expectations game is such that if this guy can put one foot in front of the other, everybody says congratulations. I mean, the expectation game is it’s like people are just thrilled that he doesn’t drool and fall (Laughter)

Cunningham: If he remains upright.

McCabe: Yeah, it’s a huge win, huge win.

Cunnigham: Crom, you had a question.

McCabe: What’s your question.

Carmichael: Well, I had two questions. One Neil, when you’re walking into the press room or wherever he’s going to be sure that there’s not a single step that he has to negotiate in order to get into the room. Is it as flat as I think it is?

McCabe: Oh, Yeah. The Oval Office is actually a little higher than the briefing room. So there’s a floor that a bunch of the floors are on. And then he has to come down some stairs. But that’s that’s very much behind the scenes. I haven’t seen if they’re going to have it in the East Room or not. But this thing will be very tightly controlled. Remember the vast majority of the White House press corps are committed leftists and they’re not going to do anything to jeopardize their guy. And it’s just so funny, the same people who are chirping and hollering and interrupting President Trump, they just clap like seals now.

Cunningham: That’s a great phrase. Neil, thanks so much for calling in from overseas. We sure do appreciate you taking the time this morning. I know, it’s got to be a considerable amount of effort to get a call through and we really appreciate you calling. And we’ll look forward to see what happens tomorrow.

McCabe: Take care guys. Be good.

Conservative Firebrand Candace Owens on Biden’s Decline, Derek Chauvin Trial, and Meghan and Harry’s Cries for Publicity

Conservative Firebrand Candace Owens on Biden’s Decline, Derek Chauvin Trial, and Meghan and Harry’s Cries for Publicity

 

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 host of the new evening talk show “Candace,” Candace Owens to the newsmakers line to talk about her tweets on the elder abuse of Joe Biden, the trial of Derek Chauvin, and Meghan Markle’s cries for attention.

Leahy: On our newsmaker line Candace Owens. Candace, on Wednesday you tweeted, the president of the United States is in severe cognitive decline and the entire world knows it. He gave an orchestrated kind of bizarre speech last night. What was your reaction to that speech?

Owens: I didn’t watch even a second of it because I’m not into elder abuse.

Leahy: That’s a good line. Your show is really going to be funny Candace. That’s a funny line. (Laughs)

Owens: I do not. We have a senile person that’s been installed in the Oval Office who was not given a press conference and over 50 days. Everybody in the entire world knows that Joe Biden is in cognitive decline. Everyone has known this since the second he announced that he was running for president of the United States. And the left stream media has done everything they can to protect him and to hide him and it’s foolish.

It makes America look weak. and I will not be adding myself to the group of people who are going to pretend that this man is leading our country. He’s not. He is a puppet. His strings are being pulled. I’m interested to see how long they are going to go without making him answer any questions from the press.

Leahy: What’re your guess of if he will ever hold a real press conference?

Owens: I think the answer is no, you know, I think they used covid-19 as an excuse when he was running obviously when he was nobody was showing up to hear him speak and he just had a couple of cars honking at him in hidden locations. And they don’t have an excuse now. So I think that they just keep you know doing what they’re doing and pretending that it’s completely normal that he’s not speaking in front of the press or taking any questions.

It’s a terrifying state to be. It’s like is this even a real country? There was not a single person and not even the people that are pretending that they don’t realize it that go to bed and think this is a man that is a strong leader of this country. It’s actually quite sad and it’s quite serious and it’s bizarre would be probably the correct adjectives.

Leahy: Yeah. I think you’re absolutely right about that. Other news of note. You’re just so non-controversial Candace. (Owens chuckles) You had another tweet yesterday about the trial of police officer Derek Chauvin in Minneapolis. Will he get a fair trial?

Owens: If he doesn’t get a fair trial then I think the implications are scary for the future. And I want to be clear here because people misunderstand I don’t think there’s a single person in America who thinks that Derek Chauvin is guiltless. Like we all think that Derek Chauvin did not act the correct way that day irrespective of the situation.

There’s just no reason when somebody stops moving to remain on their neck for that long. But what we’re talking about specifically are the charges that have been trumped up against to appease the public. This is not a third-degree murder charge. It should never have happened a third-degree murder charge. They can’t prove it was their degree of murder.

The autopsy shows the longer form of people who have not snippy should go out and look for it to be longer form tape of exactly what happened that day. You know, George Floyd was saying he couldn’t breathe long before he got onto the ground. It was clear to me having watched it that he was having a drug overdose. And that it’s highly likely given the results that came back in his autopsy report that he put drugs in his mouth to get rid of it when the cops were approaching the vehicle. And he had an overdose.

So Derek Chauvin did not cause George Floyd’s death. Unfortunately, the public is being deceived largely by the emotionality surrounding this case. And if he doesn’t get charged with third-degree murder, which is likely he won’t, based on evidence and we’re going to see riots as we’ve never seen before because people don’t understand that he should have never been charged for third-degree murder. So it’s unfortunate. And it’s almost like a catch-22. I don’t see how it’s good either way.

Leahy: Last question for you. A former Nashville resident Oprah Winfrey had a special interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle where they made a lot of allegations. My first question, will you invite Meghan Markle to be a guest on your new show, Candace?

Owens: As much as I think she’d love that because she’s obsessed with getting attention and pretending that she wants privacy, she will not be receiving an invite to my show because I am not looking to highlight a couple that has the audacity to accuse an entire country or to try to import America’s obsession with race overseas to England.

It’s is just so patently wrong and has upset my family of course on a lot of levels because my husband is English. And I spent a lot of time in England and it’s just so not indicative of who they are. And it’s just such scapegoating. Such spinelessness. And to Oprah, I don’t think we should be calling this an interview. We should be calling this a PR stunt. She didn’t ask any hard-hitting questions. She didn’t ask them for any proof. She is friends with Meghan Markle.

So pretending this was a no-holds-barred interview is just foolish. Meghan and Harry had the questions long before they were ever asked about them. And they crafted this interview to help them launch their careers in America and a race-obsessed America because the United Kingdom wanted one nothing could do with the narcissist Hollywood-driven couple. But let me tell you how I really feel. (Laughs)

Leahy: I was so glad to see your comments about that because I’ve studied the difference between a constitutional monarchy and a constitutional republic. I have to say Queen Elizabeth II who’s been the queen since 1952 has been a tremendous Monarch in England, in the United Kingdom, and it seems to me that Prince Harry has got some unresolved issues.

Owens: Right.

Leahy: And Meghan Markle making these allegations substantiated allegations is just looking for publicity.

Owens: That’s exactly right. And I think the worst part of the entire interview is when she says there were questions surrounding his skin color. She made that seemed like that was something harmful. It is completely harmless. I have a biracial child. If I told you how many times while I was pregnant we were saying, I wonder what color is skin color will be? I wonder how dark he’ll be?

Do you think he’ll be light? Do you think he’ll be dark? such a natural question for excited parents and family members that are trying to envision what your child is going to look like when they’re multicultural and multiracial. And she left it absent of context and just said there were questions surrounding his skin color.

I could just see right through her. Look Meghan Markle was a d-list actress. Nobody knew who she was. And today she remains a d-list actress that unfortunately, we all have to know who she is because she keeps inserting herself in this victim narrative that’s a never-ending series of victimhood.

Leahy: Candace Owens, her new show “Candace” debuts next Friday.

Star News Network’s Washington Correspondent Neil W. McCabe Weighs in on House Anti-Gun Vote and If Biden Will Fall or Fail in Upcoming Press Conference

Washington Correspondent Neil McCabe on Pelosi’s Iron Grip, the Media Hypocrisy on Biden Silence and Last Day as President

 

Live from Music Row Wednesday 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 Tennessee Star National Correspondent Neil McCabe to the newsmakers line who foresees Biden’s coming demise and how and when it will occur.

Leahy: We are joined on the line by the best national reporter in Washington DC for Star News Network Neil McCabe. Good Morning Neil, How you doing today?

McCabe: Very glad to be with you Michael.

Leahy: So Washington going crazy. They’re spending money like drunken sailors. They passed this one point nine trillion dollar coronavirus aid package that only contains nine percent for coronavirus. Nancy Pelosi that has an iron grip upon the brains and other parts of the Democrats in Congress, she says they’re going to spend more on covid relief spending. Ask the virus she says. What do you make of that Neil?

McCabe: Well, let me say this. And it’s pretty clear to me that the wheels are coming off the cart for the Biden administration. They are just saying we’re not even 100 days in we’re approaching the Ides of March. And it’s pretty much over for the Biden administration. I don’t think it’s any kind of victory for Biden that he was somehow able to convince people on Capitol Hill to vote for a two trillion dollars pork package. That seems pretty easy. I think if I was Speaker of the House I could get that. I could convince Congressman to send to spend two billion dollars on pork.

Pelosi’s basically got a lot of things that her progressive caucus wants her to do. She’s not going to get any of them done. And she can spend more money. But if she tries to do anything else she’s going to get into a world of hurt. Right now the calendar has kept against Biden and I just don’t see how he recovers anywhere and getting anything done in 2021. And then 2022 is going to be even worse for him.

Leahy: So he’s not held a press conference yet. How many days are we into this? 45, 46, 47. No press conferences yet. If this were a Republican president how would the mainstream media react to that silence from Joe legal but illegitimate Joe Biden?

McCabe: When you talk about Trump, there is no president in the history of this planet or any other planet in the universe that has given as much access to the press as Donald J. Trump. And reporters never had it so good. How many of these reporters became famous for their snarky questions and their back and forth with the president interrupting him, being so rude, and obnoxious? And now crickets. And, of course, it’s complete hypocrisy.

But what do you do? Joe Biden does not have the mental faculties to be president of the United States. Not only does he not remember the name of his defense secretary but he doesn’t remember both the name of the very large five-sided building that that man works in. He’s got a lot of problems. There was a gaffe the other day about four or five days ago where he’s doing a virtual tour some kind of call with NASA and he mentioned Joe, his vice president is of Indian descent.

His chief speechwriter is of Indian descent. There are more than 50 senior leaders in his administration who are of Indian descent. And Biden says wow, the Indians are taking over. Now forget Republican or Democrat. If anybody made that kind of ethnically charged gaffe, there will be hell to pay. The reason Biden gets a hall pass is that everyone knows he can’t be held responsible for what he says. It’s amazing.

And of course you look at the press coverage. How many articles did you read Mike about how great it is to have dogs in the White House again until one of the dogs attacked the secret service officer? (Leahy laughs) now, we’re being told it was the secret service. So now basically Major and Champ these two German Shepherds have been exiled to the Biden estate in Delaware. Biden was joking when he said the Indians were taking over. But Kamala Harris is going to be president of the United States sooner than he expects. He’ll have plenty of time to play with Major and Champ when he’s in private life back in Delaware.

Leahy: Give us a date. What is the last day Joe Biden serves as president of the United States?

McCabe: I really believe they have to take him out between Thanksgiving and Christmas because it’s all about the calendar. The major push for any kind of legislation on Capitol Hill from the state of the union and straight through Memorial Day. And after Memorial Day is going to be two or three things that you got to get done. And then there’s that final push for specific items to the Fourth of July.

From the Fourth of July to Labor Day nothing is done. Then you have a budget crisis. And the budget crisis then basically you hit all these holiday weekends, right? So you hit Columbus Day. You hit Veterans Day you had Thanksgiving and then you hit Christmas and then the cycle starts over again and it reboots with the state of the union. So they’ve got to take him out probably between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Leahy: And just remove him from the office of President is what you mean by that, right?

McCabe: Well, yes. I mean either it’s the 25th amendment or they sit him down and they say listen…

Leahy: It’s time to resign.

McCabe: (Inaudible talk) Hunter, or whatever we have to say or do to make him go away. And the question is, you know, will Biden’s team around him, this is the interesting dynamic. Because the Biden family in the Biden team obviously loves being in power like anyone else. That’s not a Republican or a Democratic thing.

That’s just people. So are they just going to how are they going to push back as Harris and Obama and that crowd basically try to push crazy Uncle Joe out the door. An interesting dynamic may develop where the Republicans actually sort of reach out to sort of keeping Joe in so that Kamala doesn’t become president of the United States. Let me ask you this Mike. When is the president’s State of the Union? When is he making his address?

Leahy: Supposedly he’s making an address this month sometime right? But is it a state of the union? I don’t know.

McCabe: No. He’s not going to do it. If you don’t know then join the club. Because no one knows. If Easter is April 4, it’s not going to be before Easter. You can’t do it in holy week. Then you have Greek Easter which pushes you to the 11th. The earliest he could do it is probably the week of April 18. So if I just said the hardest push for the legislation from a president of the United States is between (Inaudible talk) or Memorial Day. (Chuckling)

If he’s kicking off his administration on April 18th Well, well, how do you do sir? We have like three weeks. I think I think there are house votes scheduled for seven days in March. Eight days in April. Eight days in May. I think they’re in for 12 days of votes in June. On July 30th the House goes on recess from July 30th to September 20. So basically nothing’s getting done from August and then more than half of September.

Typically a president comes in and he does what’s called a skinny budget where you basically give the new president the chance to make his own personal amendments in the fiscal year budget that’s ongoing. They call it the skinny budget. How do you do a skinny budget when you don’t even have a director of the Office of Management and Budget? They dragged that out with Neera Tanden.

Leahy: And she’s gone right?

McCabe: (Inaudible talk) An Indian American by the way. And she pulls her nomination in March. She dragged that thing out. How do you go into March where you do not have an acting director? It’s not good for the Biden administration.

Leahy: Neil McCabe, you are on the record. March 10th, 2021. Come January first, 2022, Joe Biden will not be president of the United States. Neil, thanks for joining us today.

McCabe: Be good guys. Take care.
