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 to discuss the weak response to Cuba’s communism, the Democrat Party’s support of authoritarian government, and the conspicuous inaccuracies of the Capitol Hill riots.
Leahy: In studio with us, the original all-star panelist, Crom Carmichael. Crom, you know, I saw a lead story at Breitbart. They had an exclusive interview with former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
And basically, he said everything that the Biden administration is doing dealing with Cuba is wrong and weak. And of course, this is a constant theme that I have.
We have a Beta male serving as secretary of state. The former lead partner of the not so esteemed law firm Winken, Blinken, and Nod. Antony Blinken.
Their idea is, I think, let me subvert America’s interests. Let me bow down to every other tyrannical dictator in the world and just beg them to have mercy on us.
Carmichael: It’s really quite something. The latest story on Cuba is that the Biden administration has so far denied Cubans the Internet. And our security people said if we want to provide the Cuban people access to the Internet, we can do that quickly.
Leahy: Why haven’t they done it?
Carmichael: Because they support authoritarian governments and that is something that the Democrat Party wants to emulate.
Leahy: They want to emulate them. And of course, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez has and all the Black Lives Matter leaders have been critical of the protesters in Cuba, from what I can tell.
Carmichael: Yes, because they’re in favor of the regime. But Cuba is not in isolation. You have the Biden administration who is determined to lift the sanctions from Iran to give them the funding back that they needed and used in the past to terrorize the Middle East. And I can’t explain that because there is no logical explanation for funding.
Leahy: I have a theory.
Carmichael: Ok, please.
Leahy: I think they are deliberately trying to destroy the United States of America. That’s my theory.
Carmichael: And Israel, while they are at it.
Leahy: But let me just stop for a moment because what’s the alternate? Are they just dumb and stupid or they’re just caught up in ideology? Is it deliberate, Crom?
Carmichael: I don’t know, but let me say this. That is a great question. I do not know the answer. But when you look at four, you have four countries.
The other two, in addition to Cuba, where they’re not doing anything to help the people who are calling for freedom in Iran, they’re backing the regime and not only backing the regime against their own people.
They want to give money even though they know that the last time they gave them a bunch of money there were terrorists all across the Middle East. Terrorist acts all across the Middle East funded by Iran.
Leahy: But you said even though they know. I think it might be because they know.
Carmichael: And then that would make it even worse. But for me, this kind of falls in the category of: do I want to get hit by a truck going 80 miles an hour or a train going 80 miles an hour.
Leahy: Either way, the outcome is the same.
Carmichael: So whether they know what they’re doing is terrible or whether they’re doing the same terrible things because they’re fools, the result is the same.
But they’re kowtowing to Russia and letting Russia build their pipelines while they are canceling pipelines here in the U.S. And so to claim that pipelines themselves are hurting global warming junk –
Leahy: That seems to be consistent with my theory that they’re deliberately doing this.
Carmichael: That they are trying to crush the West. And then the last country, of course, is China.
Leahy: Of course.
Carmichael: Where China has now been caught hacking Microsoft and probably many other hacks. They steal our intellectual property, and Biden is doing nothing. He just does nothing.
And this does not end well for the American people. The deeper question for me is, let’s assume the public wakes up. And let’s assume that the appropriate voter laws are in place so that the Democrats are unable to cheat.
Leahy: The way they did in 2020.
Carmichael: The way that I believe they did too.
Leahy: Lots of evidence out there.
Carmichael: A lot of evidence, but it’s not conclusive. But there are trials that end with the preponderance of the evidence.
And this is more – this is not a criminal trial. This is a civil trial in the way that we’re thinking about this. And that is because we’re not going to change the result of the election.
Leahy: Zero, zip, nada chance of that.
Carmichael: No. Biden is president. And if he cheated to get there, then they were clever in the way they did it.
Leahy: My phrasing, of course, is legal, but not legitimate.
Carmichael: But the deepness of the deep state, we were talking about Michigan, you couldn’t embed FBI agents. And we also now have word that there are a number of FBI agents embedded in the January sixth riots.
Leahy: More than two dozen according to Tucker Carlson and the documents that he’s received.
Carmichael: And then the footage. All of the video footage is still being held back.
Leahy: That we can’t see.
Carmichael: So why is the video footage being held back from the public? It’s because to me, the answer is because they don’t want anybody going through the video footage and identifying individuals who either A, might be members of the government and the FBI or B, might be members of some left-wing groups and that they are inciting other people to do things that they shouldn’t do. Then there’ll be video, lots of video of Capitol Hill Police literally holding the door open for people to walk in the door.
Leahy: Yes. Now, were there some people who broke windows and climbed through windows?
Leahy: Yes, there were. Who were they?
Carmichael: But were there many, many more people who walked through open doors being held open by the Capitol Hill Police? And the last thing – and then I want you to jump on this one –
The last thing is we do know that the head of the Capitol Hill Police made five telephone calls asking for additional support and was rejected each time by Nancy Pelosi’s aid.
Leahy: The Sergeant at Arms who reports directly to here. Who I’m sure called her and said Madam Speaker, should I help this guy out?
Carmichael: Should I authorize more support?
Leahy: And she told them, no. That would be my guess. Yeah, I don’t know that for sure.
Carmichael: Well, they won’t tell us. Michael, you and I are left in what we’re doing here. We’re left to form opinions based on the facts as we understand them.
Leahy: Yes. Which is very limited. Very limited at best.
Carmichael: But it’s on purpose.
Leahy: Yes, a lot of things are delivered these days from the deep state. We’ll be back after the news.
