Craig Huey Outlines Merrick Garland’s War on States, Individuals, and Election Integrity

Craig Huey Outlines Merrick Garland’s War on States, Individuals, and Election Integrity

 

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 creator of the Huey Report and direct mail expert, Craig Huey, in-studio to explain ballot harvesting and the threat facing states and individuals in defense of election integrity.

Leahy: In studio, digital marketing expert, California refugee now living in state income tax-free Tennessee. Brought your businesses. Doing great here. Craig Huey.

You know Craig, Clay, Travis, and Buck Sexton have their show on here now from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. They have been great in promoting The Tennessee Star Report. We really appreciate that.

Huey: Awesome.

Leahy: You’re talking about the possibility of voter fraud in the California recall election.

Huey: Yes.

Leahy: I’ve got a story for you kind of related to it. Since you were last here. You can’t stay away from us for too long, Craig, (Huey chuckles) because we’re opening up state-based conservative newspapers.

Huey: I’m so excited about that. That’s great.

Leahy: At a rapid pace. We launched The Arizona Sun Times on June 24.

Huey: Perfect.

Leahy: Headline by Rachel Alexander, our state house reporter in Phoenix. Twitter Bans Official Arizona Audit Account and Other Audit Accounts.

Huey: Not shocked. Not shocked.

Leahy: Do you have a story to tell us?

Huey: I do. Because what has happened is this, the Democrats are running scared because voter fraud is going to be recognized because of the audit in Arizona and hopefully in other states.

Leahy: Various levels of audits are currently undergoing. There is the Fulton County, Georgia audits with absentee ballots going on now.

Huey: Yes.

Leahy: And the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Joe Biden was certified the winner in Arizona by less than 11,000 votes out of 3 million cast. Certified the winner in Georgia by less than 12,000 votes out of 5 million cast. Fulton County – there’s so many problems there.

It looks like you can’t rely upon Fulton County results. Arizona, they’re doing this audit. The Arizona State Senate has the authority to subpoena county records because in our constitutional government of the United States of America, we have two entities that have sovereignty. The national federal government and the state government.

Huey: Correct. Federalism.

Leahy: The state government, the state legislature have sovereignty over the counties which have been created by the state government.

Huey: Yes.

Leahy: So they started this audit of the Maricopa County election results. Maricopa County, two million votes cast in Maricopa County, as Phoenix. It’s the biggest county in the state. Three million total cast.

They started the audit on April 23. Everything you see in the establishment media and Democrats since even before that has been nonstop criticism of the audit for spurious reasons. They don’t want the results to come out.

And you’ve got a little story to tell us about how far the Democrats and basically the highly partisan U.S. “Department of Justice.” I say that in quotes with Merrick Garland and Joe Biden. It’s the Department of Injustice as far as I can tell.

So tell us what’s going on there. Let’s put the big picture first. The Democrats’ number one thing is to be able to have mail-in ballots and be able to have ballot harvesting so that they can do voter fraud.

Leahy: Remember that 2005 bipartisan commission I talked about, it was headed up by Jimmy Carter, the Democratic President in 1977-1989, and by former Secretary of State James Baker in the George H.W. Bush administration. That bipartisan commission said, don’t do mail-in ballots because it’s prone to fraud.

Huey: That’s correct. Here in Tennessee, Secretary of State Tre Hargett has said, we’re not going to do any of that stuff. And our elections are pretty solid.

Huey: They’re pretty solid. So here’s the thing. You’ve got 19 states who have outlawed ballot harvesting, and you’ve got 28 states that allow it.

Leahy: Briefly describe ballot harvesting for our listeners.

Huey: Ballot harvesting is not voter fraud, but it leads the voter fraud. Ballot harvesting, usually for the Democrats and the unions is a paid person, can get data of who their voters are and go to that door multiple times until they find the person at home.

Talk to them about getting their ballot. They hand them the ballot. They give them a voter guide as to who to fill out. And then they take that ballot from them and take it to the poll. Now, they can do this to 100, 500, a 1000 different homes.

One person can bring those ballots in, and there’s no audit trail. There’s nothing to say who brought those ballots in. That person can throw away Republican ballots and nobody would know it.

That person can alter the ballot and nobody would know it. And get this, Michael, they can go to a nursing home, what’s called granny farming, go bed to bed, pick up the ballots, fill them out and nobody would know the difference.

If you’ve been to an apartment complex, people when they get their ballots by mail, if they do not want that ballot, they just leave it there. People can pick it up.

Leahy: It’s just prone to fraud all over the place.

Huey: Everywhere. I could go on and on about this. SB1 and HR1 is the first bill in Congress that the Democrats had that they thought they could have passed, which would have nationalized ballot harvesting. And basically, the Republicans could never win ever again.

Huey: And they failed in that attempt, though they’re still trying. They failed in that attempt. In Arizona, they outlawed ballot harvesting. The Democrats did what the Democrats do. They took the Republicans to court to try to overthrow that bill. It went up to the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court just a couple of months ago said Arizona has the right to outlaw ballot harvesting. Democrats lost a major, major court case that affects everything in the United States.

Leahy: And that’s a very important case. I wrote a story about it at a Breitbart, Brnovich, the attorney general, the Democratic National Committee. In that six to three decision, Justice Samuel Alito wrote the following.

He wrote that states have the right to limit fraud in their states and simply by limiting fraud according to their own rules, they are not violating Section Two of the Voting Rights Act, which is the entire basis of the Department of Justice’s attack on the state of Georgia.

Huey: Yes.

Leahy: The Merrick Garland highly partisan Department of Injustice.

Huey: You’re being too nice.

Leahy: I know. I’m being too nice.

Huey: Michael, what we have right now is a war on election integrity. Right now we have Merrick Garland, the attorney general, directing an army of ideological left-wing Democrats who have unlimited time, unlimited money, and unlimited resources.

They have an army of people going after to intimidate any state that questions the last election and that will try to put into place voter ID or anything to protect the ballots.

Leahy: Not just any state but any private individual who participates in that. You’ve got some stories on that.

Huey: I do. So what happened is about three weeks ago, the attorney general made the announcement that they were going to investigate the states like Arizona.

Leahy: By the way, mercifully, I don’t always say many things about Mitch McConnell, the current Senate minority leader. But when he was a majority leader and in the last year of the Obama administration, they nominated – when Justice Scalia passed away, they nominated Merrick Garland to be on the Supreme Court. And Mitch McConnell because he knows the rules and said, I’m not doing it. I’m not going to hold the hearing. Mercifully.

Huey: Yes.

Leahy: Mercifully, instead we got Neil Gorsuch.

Huey: That’s exactly right. And going back to that Arizona decision that upheld the outlawing about harvesting, if Garland was on the Supreme Court, the Supreme Court would have decided against Arizona.

Leahy: So you know what would have happened? Let me tell you. See, if you see this is the case. So Garland would have voted against Arizona.

Huey: Correct.

Leahy: That would have been five four before they announced the decision.

Huey: Yes.

Leahy: You know what I’m going to say next.

Huey: Yes.

Leahy: In their conferences, the Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, because Crom was in here yesterday talking about a Kimberley Strassel article who said, basically, Justice Thomas, Chief Justice Thomas is fretting about Democrats attacked on the legitimacy of the court.

He’s making political decisions and has for some time since the 2012 NFIB Sebelius decision that allowed Congress to unconstitutionally pass Obamacare tax versus no tax. In that conference committee, old fretting Chief Justice Roberts would have flipped his vote.

Huey: That’s right.

Leahy: Do you agree with that?

Huey: I totally agree with that.

Leahy: So, by the way, thank you, Senator Mitch McConnell, thank you.

Huey: I can’t believe you are saying that.

Leahy: You give everyone their due.

Huey: – Everyone their due. But going back to Garland here he has unleashed an army against election integrity. It’s a war on these states and individuals. And here’s the thing in Arizona, they’re going to prove fraud. There are so many ballots that are questionable. So what they have done is they have written threatening a lawsuit, but not only a lawsuit, Michael, one year in jail.

And they had threatened a thousand dollar fines to the people who basically are like you and me. We don’t have lawyers to back us up and to intimidate them. And they’re saying, you are violating the Voters Rights Act and the Civil Rights Act and intimidating the voters by checking on the last election and ballot integrity. So the opinion of the Department of Justice is the stop the audits in Arizona, Georgia, any other state.

Leahy: Contravene justice.

Huey: Yes.

Leahy: This is Orwellian. War is peace, peace is war.

Huey: Authoritarian. I can’t believe it. And not only this, the individuals who are involved in the audit have received a letter from the Department of Justice.

Leahy: Arizona.

Huey: Yes, Arizona. If you get a letter from an attorney, man, you get scared.

Leahy: What if it comes from the U.S. Department of Justice.

Huey: You’re doubly scared cause, you know, you can’t fight them.

Leahy: Well, you can, asterisk. Okay, what does it take to fight them?

Huey: Money?

Leahy: Huge amounts of money.

Huey: And here’s what they’ve asked. Get this. This makes me so upset. I think it’s going to make you upset, Michael. They have written to them and saying, were you part of the January sixth insurrection? Were you at the capital? Are you part of any domestic terrorist groups? Are you affiliated with any voter fraud?

Leahy: When did you stop beating your wife? Are you a Communist? This is McCarthyism.

Huey: Yes. They’re asking for text, telephone numbers, voicemails, emails, and every correspondence from these individuals.

Leahy: It’s none of their business.

Huey: No.

Leahy: They’re using this as an excuse.

Huey: Yes.

Crom Carmichael Weighs in on NYC Democratic Mayoral Primary Test Ballot Debacle Under Ranked Voting System

Crom Carmichael Weighs in on NYC Democratic Mayoral Primary Test Ballot Debacle Under Ranked Voting System

 

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 the original all-star panelist Crom Carmichael to the studio to discuss the ranked-choice voting system mistake Tuesday night during the NYC Democratic Mayoral primary.

Leahy: Crom Carmichael, the story that broke last night in New York City, you’re gonna start smiling when I tell you this. Joel Pollak from Breitbart, my colleague. New York City’s Board of Elections, withdrew its latest vote count in the Democratic primary for mayor Tuesday evening after 135,000 test ballots were mistakenly included in a tally earlier in the day under the ranked-choice system.

Carmichael: How is that possible?

Leahy: How is that possible?

Carmichael: How is it possible that there might be voter fraud? My goodness.

Leahy: My goodness.

Carmichael: I thought that there was never, no matter what the circumstance, that no matter what the circumstance an investigation or a relook was always wrong. Always wrong. Checking to see if you did it right (Leahy laughs) in voting, according to Merrick Garland, is always wrong.

Leahy: I wonder if he’s going to do an investigation of New York City. Now, Here’s what’s interest.

Carmichael: That is the natural next question. And it’s the only one that’s actually still a live issue.

Leahy: Exactly.

Carmichael: So if he’s going to investigate any of them, it ought to be this one.

Leahy: By the way, you know who’s been hurt by this?

Carmichael: Who?

Leahy: The Black candidate, Eric Adams, who was leading in the first tally when they introduced these 135,000 bad test ballots that corrupted the system. His lead virtually disappeared. What does that sound like to you?

Carmichael: That might have corrupted the system.

Leahy: Might have.

Carmichael: Might have. In other words, we don’t know that. That’s why we’re supposed to do an audit.

Leahy: So actually, the Associated Press in that, let me read their lead sentence. They’re lefties.

Carmichael: Oh yes.

Leahy: Here’s what they said. They use the word corrupted. The Democratic primary, premier of New York City, was thrown into a state of confusion Tuesday when election officials retracted their latest report on the vote count after realizing it had been corrupted by test data never cleared from a computer system. That’s their words, not mine.

Carmichael: My goodness. This is going to be fascinating. Remind me and our listeners, of the Black guy who’s running. He was a former policeman, is that correct?

Leahy: Yes.

Carmichael: And the second place person is a wild leftist, is that correct?

Leahy: Wild leftist.

Carmichael: Making Bill DeBlasio look like Thomas Jefferson.

Leahy: That is funny. That is funny. (Laughs)

Carmichael: So describe what’s the name of the alternative? Ranked voting is where nobody gets a majority?

Leahy: They eliminate the bottom person, and then they go to the second choice and add them to the vote. It’s a big mess.

Carmichael: And so in this case, the did you say they were 135,000 test balance that they did to test the integrity, this is great, the integrity of the voting process. And then they left them in there.

Leahy: They left them in there. And they reported the results yesterday. And then they said, whoops! We forgot to take those out.

Carmichael: We forgot to erase the test.

Leahy: And the Black guy went from a big lead to almost tied because of that.

Carmichael: Okay, so the election has not been overturned.

Leahy: No.

Carmichael: Are they going to be able to identify the 135,000 ballots specifically?

Leahy: I don’t know. I don’t see how they’re going to do it.

Carmichael: They can’t do an audit.

Leahy: That would be evil. (Laughs)

Carmichael: It would be evil to do an audit.

Leahy: But wait. But wait. There’s more Crom. I know this would surprise you, but President Trump weighed in on this about an hour ago.

Carmichael: What did he say? Let me read this state and then get your reaction.

“Just like in the 2020 presidential election, it was announced overnight in New York City that vast irregularities and mistakes were made, and that Eric Adams (he’s the Black guy) despite an almost insurmountable lead, may not win the race. The fact is, based on what has happened, nobody will ever know who really won. The presidential race was a scam and a hoax with numbers and results being found that are massive, shocking, and determinative. Watch the mess you’re about to see in New York City. It will go on forever. They should close the books and do it all over again the old-fashioned way when we had results that were accurate and meaningful.”

Carmichael: That might as well have been said by De Blasio (Leahy laughs) about his own city because what Trump said there is entirely accurate about the election in New York City. It’s entirely accurate.

Now give us an update, because Mr. Garland is now trying to insert the Justice Department not only in whether or not there will be a recount, isn’t he now trying to do it in Fulton County? Isn’t he trying to stop that recount using the Justice Department, do that as well as overturn?

Leahy: If that’s happened, it’s recent. But he might have. I wouldn’t put it past him.

Carmichael: Or maybe it was a judge. Maybe it was a judge. Maybe I’m speaking out a step here. There was something about Fulton County where an audit is going to be able to proceed.

Leahy: That was from last week. Last week Merrick Garland, mercifully not on the Supreme Court, basically is suing the state of Georgia for passing an election integrity law that they’re claiming was intentionally designed to keep Black votes away. I don’t know how they see intent out of this.

Carmichael: They won’t be able to find that.

Leahy: But the audit of the absentee ballots, that review is proceeding under a few little complications, but we don’t know when it’s going to start, but it is scheduled to proceed.

Carmichael: And that’s in Georgia as well as in Maricopa County. Is that audit still ongoing?

Leahy: They’ve actually completed the audit. Now they’re writing the report from what I understand in Maricopa County. That report will come out in August. And so we’ll see what happens.

Carmichael: And did Arizona also pass election law reform?

Leahy: They are the leader in election reform. So the next thing you are going to see is Merrick Garland sue them. What a shock.

Crom Carmichael Defines White Supremacy and Its Convenient Relationship with Today’s Media

Crom Carmichael Defines White Supremacy and Its Convenient Relationship with Today’s Media

 

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 the original all-star panelist Crom Carmichael to the studio who analyzed White supremacy in relation to the current media narratives and federal officials wielding of power.

Leahy: We are joined in studio by the original All-Star panelist, Crom Carmichael. And as you know, it’s Wednesday. So, of course, it’s time for Crom to be in studio. Good morning, Crom.

Carmichael: Morning, Michael.

Leahy: Well, so much to talk about. So little time.

Carmichael: Yes.

Leahy: We’re talking a little bit about journalism in America. Where does it stand?

Carmichael: Well, I want to connect two dots. One is journalism in America. We talked about it Monday. And then on Monday, when I got home, I was reading The Wall Street Journal.

And there’s an article by Gerard Baker, and he essentially said exactly the same thing we were saying. And I’m going to quote a couple of things from the article. It says these days, proliferating lapses and journalism judgment and standards are not simply forgiven by the editorial establishment.

They are rewarded as long as they are the right kind of error by the right kind of person. He says even Jeffrey Toobin is in fact, the indispensable legal mind CNN evidently believes he is, his reinstatement last week must surely fill some of his colleagues with misgivings. I don’t believe that a single person at CNN has any misgivings about Jeffrey Toobin coming back.

Leahy: Because he’s in the club that’s vastly overpaid.

Carmichael: He’s in the club and they don’t care.

Leahy: As long as they have they get paid and they get their agenda out.

Carmichael: They have a narrative.  And I would imagine that there are other people at CNN who are equally as disgusting as Jeffrey Toobin. But then it says, but his restoration to a more salubrious on camera roll is a helpful reminder of the rules that now govern the news.

The medium is no longer the message. The new reality is that the mission is the message. As long as your work furthers the mission, no failure in behavior, no error in reporting or editing, no corruption of the truth or evidence will go unrewarded.

All data and facts, all judgment about stories and people who produce them are subordinate to the mission. Now, I want to take all of this and tie it into this new thing of White supremacy. What is White supremacy?

How would one define White supremacy? Is it White people, primarily males, who are trying to use the government to have control over other people, especially minorities? Would that be the definition of White supremacy?

Leahy: Crom, yeah, it would seem to me that would be a good definition of White supremacy.

Carmichael: Then Merrick Garland and Joe Biden are right up there. (Leahy chuckles)  They are right up there.

Leahy: I could see that one coming a mile away.

Carmichael: Oh, my gosh. I don’t know if you’ve seen what Merrick Garland is now trying to do in Arizona. You have an investigation in Arizona by officials in Arizona. Legal officials.

Leahy: Authorized by a state judge.

Carmichael: Yes. And Merrick Garland is trying to say that what they are doing is wrong. Now, let me say this. That’s a White supremacist if I’ve ever heard one. Because here’s another thing.

This shows you why Mitch McConnell and the Republicans were so wise and not even holding hearings for this political hack. He apparently was a circuit court judge. The Washington circuit.

He should understand the Constitution. He should know that states have the authority over elections, not the federal government. He should know that. But he doesn’t, apparently, or even worse, he knows it and is ignoring it.

Leahy: Let me just step back for listeners just to remind them when Crom was talking about Mitch McConnell refusing to hold hearings for him, it wasn’t a hearing for his confirmation as attorney general. He was nominated for the Supreme Court after the death of Anton Scalia.

Carmichael: Yes. Thank you for that. We are talking now two years ago.

Leahy: 2016. And rightfully, Mitch McConnell, the Republican majority leader, had told President Obama it’s an election year. You nominate somebody, we’re not going to hold hearings.

Carmichael: Right. And that’s exactly what Joe Biden had publicly announced in 1992. And that was even when a sitting President was running for reelection. In the case of 2016, you didn’t have a sitting President running for re-election.

But I really want to dig into this question of what is a White supremacist. Might a White supremacist be the head of the FBI who inserts, as we learned from Tucker Carlson last night.

Over a dozen FBI operatives into the organizations that were coming to Washington to listen to Donald Trump talk about the elections and whether or not there was cheating in the elections.

And now we’ve learned that the FBI from Tucker Carlson that the FBI, some of these people who insert themselves actually agitate and actually come up with ideas of insurrection, encouraged the insurrection and participated in it.

Leahy: There’s a word legal word for that. I think it’s called entrapment.

Carmichael: Yeah, I think so. I think so. And so now you have people who are sitting in jail in solitary confinement in Washington, D.C. who won’t be tried and whose lawyers are not being given access to the evidence.

Now, think about this for a second. Is Christopher Wray White? Yes. Is he trying to use the power of government to crush other people, some of whom are minorities, some of whom are women? One of the Capitol Hill agents shot and murdered.

Leahy: Murdered Ashli Babbitt.

Carmichael: Who was unarmed. A 14-year veteran and we can’t even find out who that person is. That person is not even going to be tried. Apparently, there was not even a Grand jury.

Leahy: How does that happen?

Carmichael: It when you have White supremacists who have power. And that’s what we’re looking at here. Whether or not they’ll be able to use that power to leverage taking over the government, I think, is in great question because I don’t think they can.

But I think they were trying to. We have Joe Manchin and Krysten Sinema to thank. I think there are other Democrats in the Senate, but they wouldn’t stand up. Those two did. They stood up and said, enough, we’re not going to do away with the filibuster.

We’re not going to do away with our Democratic system. We’re not going to do away with our Constitution. And so because of that, Biden’s whole agenda has stalled. I don’t watch CNN.

And so I wonder whether or not they applauded Joe Biden for being able to walk up and down the steps of Air Force One without falling. Because for CNN, that’s about all he has to do to have a successful trip abroad.

Leahy: There’s something I wanted to point out first about the Australian media. The Australian media has observed the fawning of the American establishment media over Joe Biden in these G7 meetings in Europe. And they are just utterly disgusted by it. They’ve reported on that.

Carmichael: Yeah. You’ve heard the old baseball story about Shoeless Joe. I’m going to say, Clueless Joe. That’s a new name for me. I listened to some of his answers to very easy questions.

And one of the questions because Biden, showing how tough he was during the election, said that Putin was a killer. So a reporter asked him during the election campaign, you called Vladimir Putin, ‘a killer.’ Do you still stand by that? Do you still call him a killer? (Imitates Biden)

Leahy: I think your imitation of Joe Biden presents him more articulately than he really was.

Carmichael: (Imitates Biden) (Laughter) C’mon man. That was yesterday. What’s tomorrow? Who is tomorrow? It’s embarrassing on one hand. I just have a suspicion that the midterms and I have great faith in the American people, in crowds, the wisdom of crowds.

And I think that the people are looking at what’s going on now and looking at Biden. And by the way, he’s giving everything to China that China wants. Everything. So the fix is in there. In fact, domestically, I can’t think of anything that China would want Joe Biden to do domestically that Joe Biden isn’t doing.

Leahy: Open borders.

Carmichael: Open borders, trying to trash our Democratic process, trying to divide the country,

Leahy: Trashing Americans who supported Donald Trump while on European soil. By the way, Politico, talk about the media. Here is their headline two days ago about Joe Biden in Europe.

Biden Flourishing in Foreign Policy. I gotta look at the dictionary. It’s sort of like the Democratic definition of infrastructure. What is the Democratic definition of flourishing?

Carmichael: The answer is walking up and down the steps here Air Force One without tripping. (Leahy laughs) That must be it.

Leahy: That is very good Crom.
