Live from Washington, D.C.’s FAIR event 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 Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch to the microphone to discuss his advocacy at Jihad Watch and the coverup of jihadi terrorists that are coming through the southern border.
Leahy: We are delighted to welcome to our microphones as our guest, Robert Spencer. He’s with Jihad Watch. Welcome, Robert. Thanks for coming in today.
Spencer: Thank you, Michael. Great to be here.
Leahy: Tell us a little bit about Jihad Watch.
Spencer: Jihad Watch is an organization dedicated to tracking jihad activity in the United States and around the world. It is the only site on the web, jihadwatch.org that gives you all the news about jihad activity. And most people would be amazed to see how much of it there is that is not reported in the mainstream.
Leahy: Yeah, that’s true. How long have you been doing Jihad Watch?
Spencer: About 300 years. No, 20 years.
Leahy: 20 years?
Spencer: Yes, sir.
Leahy: The bad guys on the left don’t like you.
Spencer: They don’t.
Leahy: They don’t send you Christmas cards.
Spencer: As far as they’re concerned, the problem is Islamophobia. It’s not jihad terrorism. Islamophobia isn’t blowing anybody up.
Leahy: Well, speaking of people getting blown up, I’ve noticed since the new maladministration, we have the legal but not legitimate current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. His name is Joe Biden.
They’ve opened the borders. They’ve violated immigration law. What is the terrorism danger that we face from these open borders with over a million people flooding through from who knows where?
Spencer: For decades, the Border Patrol has had a classification OTMs. Other than Mexicans, who are largely people from places like Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere that are jihad terror hotspots who come into the United States over the southern border.
Most recently, in April, there were two Yemenees on the terror watch list. And that’s very important because Yemen is very closely tied to the Islamic Republic of Iran. The Huthi Shiite rebels there are funded by Iran.
And so there were two Yemenees who were on the terror watch list that were apprehended at the border in April. And Customs and Border Patrol put up a notice on their website about this. And then the next day it was gone.
Leahy: What do you mean? The notice was gone?
Spencer: The notice was gone.
Leahy: What happened to those two Yemenee terrorists?
Spencer: We don’t know. Nothing was reported after this. The whole incident was swept under the rug. It’s very clear the Biden administration wants to cover up the infiltration of jihadi terrorists at the Southern border.
Leahy: I’m going to ask you a question. I’ve been asking all of our guests here, and I think this is my hypothesis. Is this an intentional attempt by the Biden male administration to destroy our constitutional Republic?
Spencer: Yes, I do believe that. Absolutely. They couldn’t be this stupid.
Leahy: I agree. I absolutely agree. They couldn’t be this stupid or incompetent.
Leahy: This is intentional.
Spencer: Yes. These are open borders, socialist internationalists. They want to destroy the very concept of the nation-state and create a mega-state of probably of a Marxist persuasion. And consequently, the United States has to be destroyed as such.
Leahy: Yes. Exactly. Let’s take a look at that and let’s look at why this is happening. Why does Alejandro Mayorkas think this way?
Spencer: Alejandro Mayorkas is a Marxist, and so are most of the other people in the administration. And people might think, oh, that’s crazy. They couldn’t possibly be. But if you look at their guiding philosophy at their statements, it’s very clear.
These people are internationalists. They believe that there ought to be a global order that transcends national boundaries. And so what are they doing but destroying our own national boundaries?
Leahy: And you look at Myorkas when he says something. He is such a practiced liar. I mean, every word he says is a lie.
Spencer: No doubt about it.
Leahy: How did this guy become our secretary of Homeland Security?
Spencer: Joe Biden is a liar. Joe Biden is a serial liar from way back. He even plagiarized his life story from the British politician Neil Kinnock in 1988. He was caught on that, telling stories about his childhood that were Neil Kinnock’s childhood.
Leahy: Made up, made up. So Mayorkas really at his core, is a Marxist. At its core, what is Joe Biden?
Spencer: Joe Biden, I think, is just somebody who’s trying to enrich himself at the public trough. He’s a career politician. He is very clear that his son is selling access. That is as obvious as the nose on your face. And yet nobody dares say anything about it.
Leahy: How did we become so cowardly as a country to not take action to stop this destruction of our country?
Spencer: The big problem, Michael, is that the Republicans are bought as well. For the most part. You have people like the former President and others who still stand for America as it was founded.
Leahy: Donald Trump.
Spencer: Yeah. Absolutely. But you’re talking about a Republican establishment that is tied into this, enriching themselves at our expense.
They go in and they get paid massive amounts to favor various policies, many of which are against the best interest of the American people.
Leahy: It’s interesting because you’ll see this little theater in Washington and you’ll see something outrageous from Mayorkas and he’ll say, oh, the borders are closed. Or something like that. And I’ll say, who am I going to believe you, Mr. Mayorkas, or my lying eyes?
Spencer: Well, they’ve been lying to us for years. This is the same government that has been telling us for 20 years that Islam is a religion of peace that has nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism.
Meanwhile, there’s jihad terrorism growing around the world. Let’s see if there’s a possibility here at all Robert Spencer on the web at jihadwatch.org. Give me a note of optimism here. What can be done to stop this infiltration at the border of terrorists?
Spencer: I think the worse it gets, the better it gets because more people wake up and more people become activists. We all have to become activists now.
And the Arizona audit is a sign of hope that maybe we can turn this around and get some real election reform, and have a free election in which none of these people would win.
Leahy: The institutional forces, though, against that seems to be quite grey.
Spencer: They are. There’s no doubt about that. But the great forces of immense power have been brought down by the people before. Look at the fall of the Berlin Wall.
Leahy: Very good point. Is there anybody any elected public official in your view on the either Republican or Democratic side? Is there anybody who is honestly seeking to end this infiltration of terrorists at the border?
Spencer: Oh, sure. Congressman Gohmert of Texas of course.
Leahy: Louie Gohmert. So he is on the list of people trying to stop this?
Leahy: Who else?
Spencer: Ted Cruz has done work in this direction. And there are actually several others that are not immediately leaping to mind, but not as if we don’t have anybody in there.
Leahy: So we do have somebody fighting for the good guys.
Leahy: But what can happen that will have some impact?
Spencer: Oh, I forgot. Governor DeSantis.
Leahy: Yes. Governor DeSantis in Florida. But how do how the administration legal but not legitimate, be run by Biden and populated by liars at the top level? That’s number one.
Number two, the House, slightly Democrat, the Senate, 50/50, but controlled by Democrats. What hope is there over the next three and a half years or a year and a half?
Spencer: We have to have free elections. And if we have free elections, there’s plenty of hope because many of these people will be swept out of power. But election reform is the key issue right now.
Leahy: What is Jihad Watch doing in the arena of election reform or are you just kind of cheering on all the other activities in election reform?
Spencer: Yeah. We are an advocacy group. We’re trying to raise awareness about these issues, and that’s why I’m talking to you today.
Leahy: When you say election reform, do you have any programs on that or are you just talking about it?
Spencer: There has to be voter ID. There has to be a complete end to mail-in ballots. Of course, California just went the other way and institutionalized it. But that can always be turned around.
And the more people realize how the very foundations of our Republic are being eroded, I think the more people are going to be working to rid that.
Leahy: Of course, you’re very familiar with the 2005 Bipartisan Commission headed up by Jimmy Carter of all people, in James Baker, former Secretary of State under Reagan, that concluded that mail-in ballots were the number one possibility for fraud in elections and that Commission said we should stop that.
In California and other places, they want more mail-in ballots. This is to me, to my way of thinking a way for Democrats to cheat at.
Spencer: There’s no doubt. Absolutely. This is how these people are maintaining themselves in power. They know that the vast majority of the American people detest what they’re doing.
Leahy: They do.
Spencer: They are able to maintain themselves there by cheating.
