On Friday’s Battleground State Report with Michael Patrick Leahy and Doug Kellett – a one-hour radio show from Star News Digital Media in the early stages of national weekend syndication roll out – with Kellett out of studio, Leahy welcomed special guest host Claudia Henneberry, co-author of the Star News Digital Guide to the Constitution and Bill of Rights for Secondary Students to the show.
During the show, the two commented upon how Democrats seem to be able to get away with everything from insider trading and illegally harboring classified information to name a few.
Leahy: Our theme here is, how will it play in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I love alliterations Claudia as you know. And you know that phrase used to be when they had Broadway shows they would test them out and say, “Well how will it play in Peoria, Illinois?”
Leahy: We can’t say Peoria because Illinois is not a battleground state even though we’ve lived here in Nashville, Tennessee. I think just about everybody that’s leaving Illinois is moving to Nashville, Tennessee.
Henneberry: You mean Cook County. Cook County runs things in Illinois.
Leahy: Yeah of course. And their strategy is not a good strategy.
Leahy: They want to take every awful liberal policy that failed in Illinois, and they’re fleeing because it’s so awful. Now they flee to wonderful Tennessee. We have no state income tax. We have great economic growth and low regulations. They want to impose those policies here.
Henneberry: I know. Don’t they know what it cost in Illinois?
Leahy: Guys, wake up and smell the coffee!
Leahy: If you want to do that just stay in Illinois. (Henneberry chuckles) Don’t come to Tennessee. Did you see this? CNN, the communist news network.
Leahy: What do we call those guys? This past week they had a seven-hour extravaganza.
Henneberry: Oh, yeah. I didn’t see it for goodness sake. I don’t think I could have stomached that.
Leahy: It was on climate change. Alleged.
Henneberry: I heard.
Leahy: Now we do have a climate. The temperatures do change over time. Maybe they’re up a little. Maybe they’re down a little. Maybe they’re about the same. Scientists who have actually study this stuff are inconclusive about it. I guess it’s up a little bit but maybe not that much in the past 17 years.
But in man’s conceit, I think that our activities can change the climate. There’s no evidence to support that. But if you’re a Democrat you believe that. Do you ever listen to Mark Levin on the radio?
Henneberry: Love Mark.
Leahy: Isn’t he fun? And so Mark Levin the other night was talking about, he played over this 1992 comedy routine by George Carlin. You remember the late great George Carlin.
Henneberry: I do.
Leahy: And he went off on this deal on the utter conceit of limousine liberals. George Carlin said this. Who thought they could actually influence the climate. You can’t. It’s ridiculous. So we had seven of this religious dogma coming from CNN. Elizabeth Warren echoing that great scientist representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The one who doesn’t know how to use a garbage disposal. Doesn’t know what it is. That one.
Leahy: Elizabeth Warren says, “We only have 11 years left.”
Henneberry: Yeah, well we didn’t have what 12 years left back in 1997 or something like that?
Leahy: Remember the economist Thomas Malthus in 1800 he said, “We’re going to run out of food in 30 years.” It’s his malfusian ecomics. It was disproven back them and it’s disproven today. But if you’re a Democrat, apparently you don’t read those actual facts. So we have 10 remaining candidates who will be on the stage in the debate. And I think it’s ABC. It’s a debate that will be held on Thursday and these 10, the leading one’s right now is China Joe Biden.
Leahy: Who is utterly compromised in China. We’ve talked about this before, Hunter Biden. Hunter Biden who has no investment experience whatsoever. He did get kicked out of the Navy for using cocaine.
Henneberry: Yeah. Well, it doesn’t count if you’re a Democrat. You can do whatever you want.
Leahy: That guy he actually flew over on Airforce Two with his Dad in 2013. Stepped off. Had the cameras take the pictures. And went off to have these private meetings with the Bank of China which is controlled by the Chinese communist party. They said, “We think you’re such a brilliant guy, oh by the way your dad is Vice President.
We’re going to give you 1.5 billion dollars. More than 1 billion dollars! And you put it in your little hedge fund and you can make investments. If you manage a hedge fund you get like a two percent fee on all of that. That’s a lot of dough. And so Joe Biden would have us believe that he’s not compromised in dealing with China. Even though his son got a billion and a half dollars.
Henneberry: Well, it’s typical of any Democrat it seems, they can play the market. They get insider trading information. They can do whatever they want. They can commit crimes. They can take home confidential or classified information…
Leahy: i.e. James Comey.
Henneberry: And stash it in their bathroom or whatever they want and get away with it!
