Clint Brewer: Joe Biden’s Latest Cringeworthy Moment Another Sign of His Cognitive Decline

Clint Brewer: Joe Biden’s Latest Cringeworthy Moment Another Sign of His Cognitive Decline

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 public affairs specialist Clint Brewer in studio to comment upon Joe Biden’s latest gaffe and testimony surrounding the origins of COVID.

Leahy: Before we get to more about the CPAC and political issues of that type, our octogenarian, legal, but not legitimate Grifter in Chief Joe Biden. He continually says things that are, what’s the right word?

Brewer: Awkward.

Leahy: Awkward.

Brewer: Awkward.

Leahy: Cringeworthy. He was talking about nurses the other day. Did you, did you hear this?

Brewer: Yes.

Leahy: All right. Ladies and gentlemen, if you have children under the age of 15, cover their ears, but this is, this is our President of the United States talking about his experience with nurses. Here we go. Warning, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

(Biden clip plays)

“I had a nurse named Pearl Nelson, military. She’d come in and do things that I don’t think you could learn in medical school, nursing school. She’d whisper in my ear. I didn’t, couldn’t understand her. She’d whispered. She’d leaned down.

She’d actually breathe on me to make sure that I, there was a connection, a human connection. She even went home and brought back her pillow from her own bed because she didn’t want me uncomfortable. I’m not joking.”

Leahy: He’s not joking. Is that weird?

Brewer: Do you think he sniffed her hair? Probably.

Leahy: I mean, this guy is so weird.

Brewer: That’s just ah, I mean, that’s kind of hard to hear.

Leahy: It’s hard to hear. This guy’s the President of the United States. (Laughs)

Brewer: Here’s an idea.

Leahy: How did this happen?

Brewer: Let’s select somebody under the age of 75. What do you think?

Leahy: I’m all in favor of that. Well, look, it’s not, there are people over the age of 75 who are really with it.

Brewer: Yeah, sure. No, absolutely no question.

Leahy: This guy is not one of them.

Brewer: It’s just that none of them running for president are.

Leahy: But again, you know, so, so here we are. It is March of 2023. I think the House of Representatives under Speaker McCarthy, they’ve actually held some pretty good hearings, uh, I think, and are moving into the oversight arena a lot. Going on the special China select committee.

Mike Gallagher, doing really well. However, have you noticed this very bizarre thing where some of our Biden administration officials just cannot answer questions? For instance, this was in the Senate, not the house, but in the testimony of Attorney General Garland before Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley yesterday. It was embarrassing how dishonest and dissembling Garland was.

Brewer: And the Department of Energy report comes out earlier this week.

Leahy: Tell everybody what the report says.

Brewer: The report says that based on available information, the most likely explanation for the start of COVID-19 was the Chinese government’s virology lab in Wuhan, not, you know, bat soup at the market. Now in fairness, they said they had low confidence in this theory, but based on all the information available, it was still the most likely theory.

Leahy: Because they had even lower confidence in the bat soup theory.

Brewer: Right. And this Department of Injury report is the same conclusion that the FBI had already come to. These both happened under Biden’s watch these reports. And then the White House comes out and like says, oh, what’s not conclusive? Like they’re disagreeing with their own departments.

Leahy: The brazenness of the lies. This is what’s troublesome. How brazen the lying is.

Brewer: You know, I explained this to somebody the other day. I said, take COVID out of it. Imagine if a foreign government, another nation-state, took an action that led to the deaths of one million Americans. What would happen? It wasn’t a deliberate act, maybe.

Leahy: And, once it happened, covering it up, was deliberate.

Brewer: It was and they continue to cover it up.

Leahy: Three years later.

Brewer: News came out late last year of satellite photos showing these sorts of ghastly gatherings around cremation houses. We’re not talking about trying to decide if they’re UFOs. This is something that can be determined. It doesn’t have to be a mystery. And honestly, it’s a national security issue that we find out exactly what happened.

Leahy: Several republicans in the House have introduced legislation to make China pay. Presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy, our pal from Ohio, the guy who’s worth half a billion dollars, that guy, at the age of 37. You gotta admire that, right?

Brewer: Yeah, sure.

Leahy: Has said, time for reparations. I agree with that. The Biden administration, I don’t think they’re gonna push for reparations. Do you?

Brewer: No.

Leahy: Not those kinds of reparations.

Brewer: Or, maybe they could just forgive part of the massive amount of debt our country owes China. Maybe, maybe they just do that. Maybe they just cut a little bit off the principal instead of forgiveness.

Leahy: Off the principal. You know, forgive the debt we owe China. China would love that.

Presidential Historian Craig Shirley: ‘Biden Has Surpassed Carter as the Worst President’

Presidential Historian Craig Shirley: ‘Biden Has Surpassed Carter as the Worst President’

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 American historian Craig Shirley to the newsmaker line to talk about how President Joe Biden is the worst president in America’s history.

Leahy: On the newsmaker line right now, the very best presidential historian in America today, Mr. Craig Shirley. Good morning Craig.

Shirely: Hi, Michael. How are you? That’s quite an introduction. I don’t think it’s true.

Leahy: I think it’s true. Look, we’ve got people who have lost their minds talking about America. Michael Beschloss, Jon Meacham, Doug Brinkley, they’ve all lost their minds on this.

Shirley: I scratch my head really and I wonder what’s happening because they were all friends of mine because they didn’t use to be this way. I guess just sniffing power has turned their head and made them something that has really ruined them.

Leahy: What a great line that is. I think you are quite right. In terms of ranking, we just got past President’s Day which is honoring the birthdays of the two greatest presidents in history. February 12th, Abraham Lincoln, I think it was February 22nd in the modern calendar, George Washington. They combined into one retail selling day.

Shirley: But Martin Luther King gets one day.

Leahy: Exactly. Let’s talk about this. You rate Joe Biden very poorly. You said this to John Solomon last night. Everything Joe Biden does seems to be about destroying American exceptionalism. I’ve come to the conclusion he’s doing it on purpose. Elaborate on that if you would please.

Shirley: Sure. He’s a Jacobin right out of the French Revolution. They were dead set on destroying the French aristocracy, the French economy, and French society and culture, destroying economics and remaking the entire French world into a new political order. And that’s what Biden is intent on doing.

He is heir to the French Revolution and the Jacobin Revolution and is dead set on remaking America. A political philosopher once said the simple answer is usually the correct one.

You and I and your listeners look at Biden and say, why is he allowing the border to run amuck? Why is he allowing fentanyl to come into the country? Why is he doing this and that? Why is spending so much money putting America deeply into debt?

It’s because he wants to destroy America. It’s plain and simple. By the way, Jimmy Carter should be very glad that Biden came along because Biden has surpassed Jimmy Carter in terms of being a very very poor president. The worst president.

Leahy: Crom Carmichael has a question for you.

Carmichael: Craig, the conclusion on Biden is exactly the same as yours. My take on Biden is that he’s a grifter in the purest sense of the word. When you take a policy to him or an idea to him and you present the idea, his first screen is, does it make me personally richer?

Shirley: Yes. I agree. And my family.

Carmichael: That’s the second screen. And then the third screen is if it doesn’t make me richer or my family richer does it make the Democrat Party more powerful vis a vis everything else? Almost like the Communist Chinese Party.

Shirley: I couldn’t agree more.

Carmichael: And so, therefore, those are the screens that he uses to look at policy. And if it doesn’t do any of those three things, then he automatically doesn’t care or is against it.

Shirley: Why has he not gone to Ohio or lifted a finger to help those people in Ohio? Because Ohio is a Republican state.

Carmichael: Right. And the fentanyl issue and the border issue, and by the way, the fortunate thing is the Democrat Party is pretty much institutionally in lockstep with Biden in that it’s a party of grifters also. I tie that directly to the immense size and power of the government employee unions and all the money that they take from government employees and use to advance their political agenda, which is $8 billion every year.

Shirley: When I was in high school physics and wasn’t falling asleep, I remember the teachers saying power cannot be destroyed or created, it can only be moved around. And we’ve had this Titanic struggle for many years about where power should reside. Should it reside with the people and the localities in the states, or should it reside with the national government?

And Biden has done his level best to move power away from the people and the localities in the states to the national government. And by the way, to his family and his party and all of that. That’s what we are always fighting. Of course, Reagan believed in federalism and wanted to move and did move power away from the government back to the citizenry.

One of the ways he did it was through tax cuts because money is an expression of power. Cutting taxes took power away from the national government and restored it to the American people. Biden is just about consolidating power in Washington with a national government and taking power away from us. And you are absolutely right.

Leahy: Craig, a year ago, you did your ranking of presidents and you had Joe Biden in the bottom five. It’s been a year later. Last night you told John Solomon that he is on his way to being the worst president in American history. It seems to me he is right now the worst.

Shirley: Funny you mentioned that Michael because I just wrote a piece yesterday for Newsmax where I proclaimed that Joe Biden is the worst president in American history. And I catalog point by point whether it is Afghanistan, inflation, spending, issue after issue, I didn’t touch on the scandals involving his son and family. But just point by point by point, I rate him as America’s worst president ever.

Leahy: I think everyone in our listening audience would agree with you on that. The question that I have is, is the electoral system structured in such a way that the Democrats have such an advantage in their ballot harvesting machines, if the worst president in American history were to run for re-election, would the ballot harvesting machine be sufficient to get him re-elected?

Shirley: That’s the $64,000 question, isn’t it? We’ll find out. First of all, is he going to run? I think he’s going to run. He loves power, his family loves power and corruption. I think he’s going to run even though he’s going to be 157 years old or something.

Leahy: Pretty close.

Shirley: (Chuckles) That’s going to be the question.

Simon and Leahy: The Race for the 2024 GOP Presidential Nomination Is Now Donald Trump, Ron DeSantis, Dark Horse Vivek, and the Munchkins

Simon and Leahy: The Race for the 2024 GOP Presidential Nomination Is Now Donald Trump, Ron DeSantis, Dark Horse Vivek, and the Munchkins

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 Roger Simon in studio to discuss the 2024 GOP presidential nomination race.

Leahy: Roger Simon is in the studio with us. Roger is our all-star panelist. Roger, I recently turned 68 years old.

Simon: A kid!

Leahy: A kid! A real spring chicken. I have never in my life been more concerned that we are on the brink of World War III…

Simon: With good reason.

Leahy: Than I am today. My take on this is we have as our leader, our legal but not legitimate commander in chief, perhaps the worst foreign policy decision-maker ever.

Simon: I’ll tell you when it started.

Leahy: When did this start?

Simon: There’s an absolutely easy way to say it. On day one of the Biden administration, when he put the brakes on the Keystone Two pipeline, Vladimir Putin went, yay! Because that changed the whole global picture of energy.

The United States, which formally could have been giving all the energy that Europe needed to provide it in a war against Putin, was over. And Putin said to himself, oh, boy, we got an idiot in the White House and I’m on the move. And that’s when it happened.

Leahy: When you put it that way, Roger, I think you’re probably right. That was the beginning of it.

Simon: And during the Trump administration, the media was complaining, oh, Trump loves Putin, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. But Putin didn’t do anything. All of sudden day one, it’s all over.

Leahy: And let’s come back a little bit back to the 2020 election. The reason that Trump and so many others fought so hard against the way the election irregularities went through the process, the reason that they fought so hard against that is because they knew that Biden’s weakness would lead to a decline in American interest in a big way.

Simon: His weakness plus greed. Anybody with IQ over 100 should be able to tell that the Biden family was totally corrupt with not only Russia but China. Now we have Xi making an alliance with Putin. Nothing could be worse than that.

Leahy: I agree completely. I had the opportunity to talk to somebody over the weekend who is a Navy pilot, and I’d ask him, what happens if there’s a war with China? And he had a three-word answer to that. We all die.

Simon: What else could it be?

Leahy: That’s not good. I don’t want to die.

Simon: It might be good for space aliens to come and take over the planet or something, but that’s about the only person they could be for whatever they’re called.

Leahy: I don’t want to die. I don’t want to die. Our children don’t want to die.

Simon: No. Who does? But if there’s a single Democrat out there listening to this, I would review how you make your decisions. I really would seriously do that. I used to be a Democrat.

Leahy: I was, too, until 1984.

Simon: You are a victim of hypnosis now of the worst sort, and because this is so clear and so evident that it’s almost tragic. And I don’t even know how these people do it. Have you all had a lobotomy? What’s going on?

Leahy: Well, there’s some of that. I do think, though, that combination of the worst possible commander-in-chief for this moment in history, because he has a combination of greed, arrogance…

Simon: Stupidity.

Leahy: Unwarranted stupidity, and unwarranted aggressiveness. And you put them all together, and you are moving toward World War III.

Simon: Now, let’s hope it won’t happen.

Leahy: No, I agree.

Simon: Let’s hope and pray, but also pay real attention at the ballot box because this ain’t going away.

Leahy: So here’s the thing. We are now in February of 2023.

Simon: You had to check your phone for that?

Leahy: Yes. February 2023. And, Roger, the next president will not be inaugurated until January 2025.

Simon: This is a long while.

Leahy: This is a year and 10 months. What I am concerned about is, first, it is going to be a huge battle and an uphill battle, I believe, for whoever the Republican nominee is to win the Electoral College and become president. It’s going to be a huge battle. It’s winnable.

Simon: Yes. But it will be a huge battle. It is winnable. And I think they really have to concentrate on what has gone wrong and really explain it to people in very clear teams. We need a really articulate person. Watching Hannity last night, I don’t believe any of the ones.

So far, there are only three people who I think are articulate enough to explain it. One is Trump. He’s very good at that. And the other is DeSantis. And the third one is Vivek. Vivek. I think the rest of them forget it. They shouldn’t even be there.

Leahy: You would then agree with me, and my new characterization of the 2024 race for the GOP nomination is Donald Trump, Ron DeSantis, dark horse Vivek, and the Munchkins.

Simon: Absolutely agree.

Leahy: I think that’s a good way to describe it.

Simon: Also elevates Vivek, which will elevate the discussion. The best part about his running, I think he is a dark horse and is unlikely to win, although anything is possible. But on the debate stage, he is going to make this thing much more interesting.

Leahy: And he will advance an agenda that needs to be discussed.

Simon: Exactly.

Leahy: And that is going to be very important.

Simon: The rest of them are just cliche-ridden. Same old, same old.

Leahy: I listened to Pence the other night, and I thought, which cliche are we going to throw out now?

Simon: (Chuckles) It’s quite amazing.

Leahy: What a snore fest he is.

Simon: They don’t realize it. And even Haley’s very old-fashioned. And listening to Tim Scott last night on the Hannity show, my eyes were rolling backward. What is that guy doing? Nothing of importance.

Leahy: So let’s talk about this. Let’s assume that we are able to win the presidency back for Republicans and how we’re going to make it through the next year and 10 months. I’m very worried about that.

Simon: Prayer helps.

Leahy: Yes, that’s good. Is there anything that can be done given the current structure of our military decision-making and the woke military? It seems like a very bad formula.

Simon: People like us have a big contribution to make, which is to point it out.

Leahy: Keep talking.

Simon: Writing and talking and getting the information out there. One of the real problems and I hope the listeners can help with this, is that we are preaching to the choir most of the time.

Leahy: And we got to get it out to the other folks.
