Lot of you folks are frustrated and how would I know this that you’re frustrated? Well, a lot of you are reaching out to me and you’re sending me emails and most of you are frustrated over the lack of ability of your lawmakers to make a difference. You see a lot of of malfeasance out there in our government. And you’re being told that you just have to accept it. So a lot of you are questioning whether or not your your elected officials are competent. You’re questioning whether or not your elected officials are actually in it for you or they’re actually in it for the Cabal, this illusion of the two party system. And I’ve folks I’ve got to tell you the omnibus vote. The one point I said this last week on the Newsmax show, and one of my preambles I don’t believe in the two party political system anymore. You know why? Because I don’t believe it’s an adversarial system anymore. I don’t believe that, that Mitch McConnell and Joe Biden and Mitch McConnell and Chuck Schumer or Mitch McConnell and Nancy Pelosi or John Cornyn, or Nancy Pelosi, I don’t believe they’re at loggerheads. I don’t believe that each side gives an equal amount of emphasis toward their alleged professed worldview. I believe it’s all a dog and pony show. I don’t want to paint with too broad a brush because I know there are some conservative boll weevils, who have not forgotten what government in the United States of America is supposed to be. Of course, I’m talking about senators Cruz, talking about Senator Rand Paul, I’m talking about Congressman Jim Jordan, talking about Congressman James Comer these individuals and I know I’m leaving a lot out, I’m just giving you examples. The majority of our Congress, I believe, is tainted, but there are those and frankly, on both sides. You’ve got those who are honest, in their push for freedom and liberty and adherence to the Constitution, there are those who are openly and blatantly honest, in their their desire to destroy everything that we built in this country, in the name of some Communist China like or, or USSR, like communist utopia. So I just don’t believe that in the two party system anymore, and frankly, it’s because whenever we’re in the majority, the Republicans tend to cede a lot of ground. And it’s amazing to me that even when they’re in the minority, the Democrat Party always seems to be getting their way. They find some arcane excuse to push the limits of the Constitution to exceed the limits of the Constitution, and to basically put the Republicans who are so myopic, they just can’t imagine their Democrat friends doing such crazy and off the wall and left wing totalitarian things they just can’t conceive of it. So as the Republicans have proven not to be a match for the Democrats, depravity, let’s say it like that depravity, we the people lose and no greater evidence of that loss, I think exists than what we’ve seen in the last week with the confirmations that resulted from the Durham report that we’ve got. We’ve got serious serious problems here in in our government folks, and it’s because of governments and attention to what the deep state or permanent Washington or whatever you want to call them. What They’ve been doing theirs. As matter of fact, there’s one story that I wanted to draw your attention to. This one story, I think is emblematic of the revelations we saw in the Durham report the revelations that, in essence, the deep state exists, and they’re trying to take over. The deep state exists, and they are not held accountable because our elected officials have allowed this government to grow so big that it can’t be administered, it can’t be overseen. And that’s the danger of big, uncontrolled and accountable government. This is a Fox News article. The FBI improperly used warrantless search powers against US citizens more than 278,000 times in the year ending November 2021 278,000. Times the FBI, which is no longer a law enforcement organization. It’s now an intelligence organization. Thank you, George W. Bush. The FBI abused our rights 278,000 times in one year, and what is to prevent them from doing it again, US citizens covered in that improper effort included people involved in the capital riot on January 6 2021, George Floyd rioting protesters during the summer of 2020, and donors to a failed congressional candidate, the filing said, this is this is chilling stuff, my friends, and a lot of Americans are wondering, who’s looking out for us. I’m wondering it myself. We’ll try to get some answers from my guest today. But you know, I’m also going to start asking a question of these Republicans because no Democrat will come on and talk with me as you as you all know, Democrats are totalitarians unless you go by their script that they want to be to be on television or radio talking about, they won’t they won’t come on your program. And they know I won’t go by a script. So this is the question after I get a policy question, and I’m going to ask, What do you think your duty calls you to do? You’re an elected member of Congress, Senate, or or the House of Representatives? What do you think your duty? Do you know what duty means? And what do you think your duty is? And your current capacity? And maybe I’ll ask appointed officials as well, you will know the answer. I’m wondering if they do. Coming up next. I interviewed this congressman, before I had these revelations about the new line of questioning, I’ll be asking, so you’re not going to hear the question in this interview, but plenty of others about the corruption of the FBI, the deep state, and where are the protections for we the people? That’s all coming up on the Salcedo storm podcast? And now a word from our sponsor? Are you sick of all these Medicare commercials? Well, what if you’re under 65 and need quality affordable health coverage American medical plan specializes in under 65 health insurance plans that have zero co pays at the doctor and no deductible on all outpatient services including surgeries, you pick your doctors and hospitals. There are private plans and rolling the time and they’re 30 to 60% less than Obama care if you’re paying too much for your own health insurance call American medical plans.

Congressman Williams is the chairman of the House Small Business Committee and sits on the House Financial Services Committee. Congressman, glad to have you back. Hey, Chris, how are you? Good to be with you doing? Well, sir. Thank you for being here. Look, you and I have some pretty heavy stuff to discuss. Let’s talk about first, the Durham report the highlights, the FBI launched an investigation against President Trump without any evidence. This is the same FBI that said they had evidence that Hillary Clinton broke the law but no reasonable prosecutor would prosecute. We also were told that that there was a different standard, obviously, between Trump and and Hillary Clinton. And we were also told that the bureau didn’t live up to its high standards. Question. Why are we funding a bureau that is obviously biased toward Democrats? Well, that’s a great question. And I mean, it sure points that out in the Durham report. And of course, that’s where appropriations and we’ll have to start looking at how much do you fund this agency. When they are not on the side of the people. They’re not independent? They had have their own opinion, which is the wrong opinion. So I think we need to take a hard look at look at we have we expend too much now anyway on a lot of stuff and maybe the FBI is one that we spend too much on, they need to take a look at it. Well, and it’s not just FBI. It’s the Department of Justice. It’s the Internal Revenue Service. Well, we just now got word Congressman that the DOJ exerted its power and authority over IRS, which I wasn’t aware there was any but they fired sir. The entire team there was investigating illegal activity in taxes, alleged illegal activity of Hunter Biden’s cokehead son. Now there is a forgive me for not remembering the exact statute 1815 83 I believe, basically, it’s illegal for anybody to get in the way and obstruct a federal agencies investigation. But that’s precisely what the Biden administration just did. Well, that’s right. And there’s no rules anymore. I mean, they make up the rules, and they go from them. And it’s been that way since Obama. And that’s why these elections are consequential. I mean, we know that President Trump came in, he busted the good old boy system up, he brought it back to Main Street America. And we saw what they when they went after him and of course, 2024 is going to be critical, the same issues are going to be before the voters and they’re they’re going to want a government that can trust or one that they can’t trust. And, and we’re going to have to take a look at that. And I think we’re on the right side of all this. And we need to get our we need to get our message out through your venues, through my venues and so forth. Because this is a turning point for our country. Chris, as you know, when we look at when you can’t trust the court, you can’t trust the FBI. You got Departments of Commerce, education, you name it, that are all rogue, I oversee the I’m involved with them. Small Business Administration, but as chair of the Small Business Committee, these people have gone rogue, they don’t fight for mainstream, you can’t even get into say lower taxes is a good thing. So is it that you said earlier in the show this a real turning point for our country? We’ve got to get it right. And I appreciate all you’re doing and your listeners? Well, sir, thank you very much for the kind words and and I think part of this is an attitudinal shift. I think it is time that the Republican Party recognize that the Democrat Party no longer wishes to be Americans, by and large. But let me give you let me give you an idea of what I’m talking about here. The Republicans are not powerless at this point. They’re about ready to be powerless, but they’re not powerless to this point. As you mentioned earlier, they do have the power of the purse when it came time to to either curtail the Biden agenda or completely enable it. Members of your political party, sir, the Republicans in the Senate, they knifed you in the back. They knifed every American in the back a man by the name of John Cornyn did so congressman. They went across the aisle unnecessarily and fully funded all the lawlessness that we’re seeing unfold before our very eyes right now with that disgraceful and disgusting omnibus bill. Which by the way, sir, included language that prohibited prohibited any money, stop the illegal immigration push into the United States? Don’t does it the Republican Party have to stop enabling this? And shouldn’t guys like you, and and other conservatives start calling out their so called Republican colleagues who makes stupid and anti American decisions like the Senate Republicans did? In in last December? Yep. Well, there’s lots of times that someone like me and you who are true conservatives don’t agree with what’s going on in the Senate. That’s for sure. But I think we need to call out bad behavior. I think we need to call out the fact that the government does does not work. And you know, we vote against the bill you’re referring to back in December the omnibus. So I think we need to, you know, maybe we need to get our selling clothes on. Maybe we need to get more retail and help convinced not only some of our friends, but some of the on the other side that this big government doesn’t work. But at the same time, so much of this. I think Chris is driven by the dislike for Trump, and he’s not President. And they just carry this over. They live with this fact. And even if it’s good legislation, they don’t want to make it good legislation because somehow they think Trump will get credit for it. Right. And I think I think a lot of Democrats rely on the hatred of Trump from the likes of John Cornyn, Mitch McConnell, Mitt Romney, those who put their hatred of Trump before their own constituents. And I think that’s, that’s absolutely terrible. I think it’s an unconscionable vote to knowing the illegal immigration and the calamity that is caused to the state of Texas to actually vote for a piece of legislation that prohibits does it fun and they didn’t they didn’t just leave out funding they prohibited funding be used to secure our border and I’m going to get to the border here in a minute. But I want to talk about Biden in foreign cash. We have a bunch of whistleblowers coming forward. Some of them according to Congressman comer are are missing, we can’t find them. And this these foreign payments were outlined by your colleagues in the House. How concerned are you that Joe Biden has been paid off by our foreign enemies? For polymerizations? I’m really concerned about I think everybody should be concerned about it, no matter what your party is. The fact that we had a president knighted states that is more interested in selling his, his standard to the world, rather than really using his power to make this country better, really bothers me. And you look at the amount of money we’re talking about, it’s unconceivable, to most people the amount of money he’s received. And so he’s basically selling out America to his benefit. And that is a real problem. And I think down the road, it could affect his ability, whatever left ability he has into running the country, but to take money from the people, for his own pocket, sell to foreign to foreign countries. It’s just unbelievable, isn’t it, that we would swear a man in his presence would have that in his heart. Oh, I can cursor and then then back to the FBI. The Republicans in the House said, we are going to issue a lawful subpoena. We want to see this unclassified document that FBI agents were doing their duty. And they compiled all of these red flags, I’m assuming from Treasury because we haven’t seen the document yet. That shows all of the all of these malign payments going in for policy changes to the Biden’s and the FBI says to Congressman Roger Williams, and says to every Republican, you know what, we’re the we’re the Democrats, FBI, so we’re not going to comply with your lawful subpoena. Congressman, why is the FBI allowed to tell you that they don’t have to submit to your oversight, sir? Well, it’s pretty unbelievable in it.
As their attitude, I think the committee needs to move forward on them and do what they can to make sure that we see the documents, but I just think that in itself shows that the FBI knows they’re on the wrong side knows they’re in the wrong. They’re in a corner. They’re defending themselves and they ought to be glad to say representing America, no matter what party your thoughts, they are. Right, but I think it shows that they’re in a corner. I think at the end, we’re gonna get we’re gonna see the documents and see see what’s in the Durham report confirmed that the FBI launched a falsely predicated investigation with zero evidence while they protected Hillary Clinton from prosecution with plenty of evidence of wrongdoing on her part. So I think I think you’re right about that. Christopher Rea, should he be driven from his position? Should he be impeached? Well, I think that unless his answers unless he unless we see what we want to see, I think he’s in a situation where he needs to certainly be reviewed in in pay, I look at anybody doesn’t want to cooperate and do their job, they’re sworn to do their job. It’s pretty simple. You swear to uphold the job, you swear to uphold the the strength of this country goes on and on and on. If you can’t do that you ought to get out of the job. And I don’t think he’s done that. Congressman Roger Williams, our guest right now here on the Chris Salcedo show. Alejandro Mayorkas, so I’m going to get to him in a minute, but I want to get your take on we’re looking at 6.5 million illegal aliens in the first two years of Joe Biden’s occupation of the Oval Office. 1.7 million of them are known God aways, sir. And that’s projected. By the way, if this trend holds to be 15 million illegal aliens, with an estimated 4 million God aways meaning we have no idea who they are, Congressman, how many of those individuals gaining access to America are foreign trained military, sir? Well, I would say majority of it is, you know, these people crossing or not people coming over here for seasonal work, okay. These are people from China. These are people from Russia, these are people from Yemen, you name it, they’re coming over here. They’re not going to leave, by the way is you know, and they’re coming over here to hurt America. That’s the that’s the only reason they’re coming. And the numbers that we throw around the 15 million, the 12 million, the 1.6. Nobody knows those numbers to be real. I frankly, think it’s more and we are given up our sovereignty. This is the one thing that should make should realize that Joe Biden needs to be impeached for dereliction of duty and all the counter people he’s got with him. But these numbers I think are greater. I’ve been down there a bunch I know you have to. And you see what’s happening with a wall being torn down and no judges at title 42. The end done away with is it’s a it’s an invasion, and we need to use that word. There’s more people coming across this border than we got going on in Ukraine. Yet all our money and assets go to Ukraine and need to be going to our border and so forth. So it’s a total dereliction of duty and one that I think would certainly should result in his being impeached but then you got a problem. Who’s your president? Right, Harris? That’s another issue. Now she’s the borders are on top of that.
Report the I can’t support our law enforcement. She says they’re like the kk k, she goes to Texas, she hangs around a parking lot. No Paso. Right, which, of course, you know, nothing says border like a parking lot in El Paso, I’m going to play one of our former presidents for you, Congressman, you’re going to recognize them immediately. And I want you to listen to the story he tells about old America and the former Soviet Union, listen to this. I’m a collector of stories that I can establish are told in the Soviet Union among their own people, showing something of their feeling about their situation. And one of these that I heard recently was an argument between an American and Soviet citizen and the American had said how he could stand down on the corner and shout right out to everybody, his criticism with the government.
And the Soviet citizen said, I can do that, too, says the only difference between us is you will still be free after you’ve done it. Now, Congressman, that’s the old America. That’s the old America because at times you went you and I were free, and your constituents were free to show their dissent toward government to show their dissatisfaction with government. Now, Alejandro, my orcas, the man that is in charge of the Department of Homeland Security is alleging that you and I, Congressman, because we dissent from our government’s actions that you and I are terrorists. I want you to listen to what he said on ABC this weekend, sir, the President yesterday at his commencement address for the Howard University graduates called white supremacy, the major domestic terror threat in this country, is that correct? It tragically is, you know, in the terrorism context, domestic violent extremism is our greatest threat. Right now. Individuals are driven to violence because of ideologies of hate, anti government sentiments, false narratives, personal grievances, and like personal grievances. He says, By the way, a correction that’s NBC, but if you have if you demand a redress of grievances as you’re writing to the First Amendment, Alejandro Mayorkas is saying you’re a terrorist. Congressman, what do you say to Alejandro my orcas? Well, first of all, I tell him, I’m not a terrorist. Okay? And, you know, he said, these are racist people, they, they are wedging the race and, and ethnicity and religion, like we’ve never seen before. He needs to be impeached, he is at dereliction of duty. And, you know, the problem is, is that, like you said, the old American we could shout on the corner and sad our grievances and so forth. Now, you can’t say anything about anybody. Because then you’re gonna get audited, you’re gonna be put in jail, not gonna have a day in court. And this a huge government takeover is why we need to understand your listeners do. This is socialism. This is communism. They’re trying to shove down our throat in America. And it’s time to fight back. And that’s what we’re doing. And President Trump has shown us how to fight. But I think my orcas certainly is one that needs to be needs to be impeached because he has been a total disaster and a loser when it comes to defending the rights of Americans and Latin Americans in the correct way and not allowing them in the wrong way to break the law. In title 42 is under his hands stay in Mexico policy. All this works, but they don’t want it to work because Trump’s thought of it. Now, Congressman, you’re right about one thing. It’s socialism and communism. And socialists and communists can’t do anything to us if they don’t have our money. Last question. Speaking of which, the debt ceiling. You’ve got, what 14 days left now really, arguably 14 days to get the debt ceiling passed. The house has done its work. They raise the debt ceiling responsibly, and they curb future harmful overspending. Joe Biden is going overseas on an overseas trip for what, five, six days? And Chuck Schumer has done zero work on this, sir, are the Democrats going to drive this country to default? I think they are. I mean, they’re doing exactly what they say we have done in the past. We raised as you said $1.5 trillion.
And it’s got some cuts I was voted for but I would have never voted for it without the cuts. The cuts are great. They begin to get our fiscal house in order. But these guys these guys they got a white paper over their civil increase the debt 1.5 trillion, they’re not doing it. They’re gonna throw us in default, if they don’t decide to sit down and negotiate. And you know, this Chris Hughes life is about negotiation. You can’t sell anything unless you negotiate and it’s evident that Biden has never run a business and never sign the front of the check. Never employ anybody and the people around him the same way. And I think that Kevin McCarthy has done a great job and putting them in the corner because they are in the corner. Remember, he wasn’t gonna negotiate now he’s gonna negotiate. Now he’s going to cut his trip short because they know they got a real problem. And if something comes over over from the from there or this or the Senate is, you know, isn’t clean debt ceiling. I will not vote for that and that will not pass. We’ve done the right thing though. We raised
In a devastating and cutting back, that’s the start of getting our fiscal house in order. Well, Congressman, I hope that Chuck Schumer can take time out from his threatening sitting Supreme Court justices on the steps of the Supreme Court to actually do some work for a living. Hope springs eternal Congressman Roger Williams, everybody 25th congressional district here in the great state of Texas, sir, I appreciate the visit. Thank you, Chris.
