You know the job was dangerous when you’re talking for him, I have a question for me. One might even go so far as a mediocre, I guess I should salute you with a worthy adversary and all that. But the truth is, I really did he still single score Podcast. I’m having a hard time shaking this feeling that we’re being maneuvered into World War Three. And we’re being maneuvered not for a fight for justice for freedom for liberty. We’re being maneuvered into World War Three so that the American people don’t discover just how awfully and terribly our own government has been treating us. I think that’s precisely what’s going on here. And I am very disturbed by this that that hundreds of 1000s potentially millions of people will have their lives stolen from them all in an effort to cover up for the malfeasance of guys like Beijing Biden of guys like Mitch McConnell, let me give an example of what I mean. Here’s Mitch McConnell, he is the Minority Leader, probably in perpetuity because of the way the Republicans have conducted themselves, the minority leader in the United States Senate. Here’s Mitch McConnell, saying what his priority is for selling us out for selling America out with the $1.8 trillion omnibus, listen to this, making sure the Defense Department can deal with the major threats coming from Russia and China. Providing assistance for the Ukrainians to defeat the Russians. That’s the number one priority. But the United States right now, according to most Republicans, that’s sort of how we see the challenges confronting the country at the moment. No, I am hearing from a good deal of Republicans as the elections drawn nearer who are saying I have changed my position on Ukraine, this never ending open checkbook to Ukraine. And it seems as you all know, you’ve all heard that Beijing Biden has approved American made cluster bomb munitions being deployed over to Ukraine and right now, American made cluster bombs are killing Russians. And then Vladimir Putin makes this move. Vladimir Putin responded to the military move with a chilling Stalin style threat that promise to remind them these are the poles of their place, using all means at our disposal. Poland has sent troops to their border with Bella ruse to face off the growing threat of the Wagner group amassing on the NATO nations eastern flank now. Many we’re gonna go with him at the Wagner group. Who are the Wagner group? Oh, yes, that’s right. These are the people who allegedly conducted a coup against Vladimir Putin some weeks back. Turns out they didn’t. Turns out there’s speculation out there they took a whole bunch of American taxpayer dollars as payment to undertake a coup against Vladimir Putin. They took the money and then they it financed their deployment to Bella ruse. Allegedly, Vladimir Putin exiled them to Belarus and now they’re about ready to poised to be poised to take back parts of Poland. Because Vladimir Putin says that really Poland just like everything else, he’s annexing really belongs to Mother Russia. Poland Security Committee decided to transfer troops to the border over concerns of the buildup of proposons Wagner mercenary army. The move was prompted by Bella Rousses decision on Thursday to hold the joint drills between their forces and the Wagner troops. Only three miles from the NATO perimeter. See, this is the problem kids. Poland is a NATO country. And now you have allegedly, the Wagner group in exile from Russia. So they can’t be tied to Russia in particular, even though we all know that the Wagner group is doing exactly what Vladimir Putin wants. And it seems like we’re being ushered in to world war three, because I don’t think that any of the NATO nations are going to basically accept Oh, yes, the Wagner group, they’re not really part of Russia. They’re an independent mercenary group. Uh huh. Folks, that this comes from weak leadership. This comes from allowing Vladimir Putin, a third rate dictator, to basically rule the roost with China behind him. And then here you have over here, Democrats and Republicans who have been laying waste to the Constitution. Abusing the taxpayers of the United States are like, Yeah, well, how are we gonna get out of this? Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. Let’s just go to war. Can’t have these rascally conservatives calling us out when the nation goes to war. Remember, article five of the NATO Treaty and attack on one is an attack on all and its folks, again, I just can’t shake this feeling that we’re being maneuvered into World War Three. So it’s, it’s imperative. I believe, that we get rid of these America last Republicans, these America last Democrats, it’s virtually every democrat and in a sadly growing number of Republicans who fall into this group. And there is some movement on this in places like New Jersey, believe it or not hear from one of the candidates that is seeking to get rid of one of the longest serving leftists in the United States Congress, Robert Menendez. That’s all coming up on the Salcedo storm podcast. And now a word from our sponsor. Does the state of the economy have your head spinning?

He is a Republican candidate for the US Senate and 20 24 who is looking to unseat the senator he calls the king of corruption, Robert Menendez and restore America first values to his state and the country by enabling the American dream of self sufficiency for all and minimizing big government. Greg, welcome to Salcedo storm podcast. Chris, thanks so much. Thanks for having me. How long has Menendez been occupying that seat? Oh, it’s over a decade. So we’d have to, we have to do something about that. Now, folks are going to ask because these days we have to because being Republican is meaningless. And I think you know what I mean by that, there’s no set of values that defines a Republican because because of guys like Mitch McConnell, and John Cornyn, how will folks know that you’re the real deal? How do folks know that if you win this election, they and they back you, you’re gonna walk the walk? Well, I do have a history. I’ve been in a few elections so far, starting more local, but a couple years ago, actually, I, I had been lifelong Republican but also had some problems with the way they were catching up on the spending to where the Democrats were. I actually stayed out of politics for a while, then a few years back, I came upon some libertarians, who gave me an opportunity and a platform that actually brought me into the governor’s race a couple years ago, as their candidate, and I espouse the values that the Republicans were were missing. And so actually, right after that election, the phone rang off the hook from folks who were trying to recruit me back to the party and be their candidate. And so here, I find myself now running for Senate against Mr. Menendez, trying to restore some of those small government and anti corruption. Beliefs. Let me let me put it back to this, this, this idea of the Republican Party, having no rudder, its there seems to be two types of Republicans, one Republican, like a Senator Cruz, for example, who is a staunch conservative and votes and lives by those values. Then you’ve got the other kind of Republican who gets up every day and says, Hey, how can I meet AOC? A declared socialist halfway, hey, let me find the nearest Democrat that I can firmly plant my lips on their butt cheek. Our our senator here, our senior Senator John Cornyn did this. He betrayed our rights in the Constitution. He sold us out on the on the Second Amendment, and he sold us out with that omnibus vote. What is your take on those two types of Republicans? And the one hand, I mean, certainly you want to be able to get things done. And it certainly also depends on the makeup of the body, you’re in as far as the majority and how by how much. But I see a lot of core values that are sacrificed all the time on the conservative side. And, you know, that’s not part of the program, in my opinion, I feel you need to stick to your core values, you can’t compromise on some things. And basically, those those important areas are what drive the policy that really, if it’s implemented shows you Okay, how are we doing under these, for example, conservative policies versus liberal policies? I think history shows and it will again, if I can unseat Mr. Menendez that conservative policies and values went out. Greg Miller, he is our guest Republican candidate for the US Senate in New Jersey trying to get Mr. Menendez off the playing field up because he he plays for the Democrats. Let me let me ask you about the the last omnibus that I made mention of because here’s here’s an example of what I mean by values. In my State of Texas, the open borders, it’s it’s just running roughshod over our state. We have entire communities, mostly Latino communities that are being destroyed, literally destroyed by waves and waves and waves of illegal aliens coming into the United States, because we have the largest border. Our one of our senators, Ted Cruz said no, I can’t vote for that. And he voted no. On an omnibus bill. Then our senior senator said, well, Mitch McConnell says that the number one priority for Republicans is making sure that as much American money as possible goes over to Ukraine. So so I can secure the money for Ukraine. I’m going to vote yes. On an omnibus bill that prohibits it doesn’t deny it prohibits any money being used to secure the border. The only money that can be used on the border is to facilitate more illegal immigration. See, to me He that is a foundational if you’re a Republican or a conservative, you don’t trade, your your fundamental dedication to the rule of law for for an an open checkbook to benefit another country why you sacrifice your own? Am I being too simplistic about that? Or would you agree? Well, I mean, I think we’re very well aligned the whole Ukraine situation. As far as how the Democrats handled things, it’s always blank check, then whatever. And there has to be some kind of check and balance to say, first of all, I mean, is there anything good that’s going to come out of it? I mean, I hate the situation of America being the world’s police and getting involved in things that aren’t affecting us here. So certainly, as far as troops, I don’t want them to go anywhere where we don’t have a threat coming here. Even Money, equipment, all that kind of stuff, we really need to be very careful and limit how much of that we do. And on the other side of it, as far as the border. I mean, I was in New York City, I wasn’t very close to the buildings, I was more in Midtown, but on 911. And so my first thought when we had the first news story of a migrant group coming up through Mexico, I, I thought immediately Well, there’s going to be terrorists that are going to sneak in there dressed up as migrants, and come right on in and, you know, do another attack. I mean, that was, that was obvious logic for a group, which I know a lot of Democrats in particular, you know, they like to think that people around the world are as enlightened as we are. But their sole purpose in life is to come in and destroy. And we, those folks get get far too much credit from the left. And well, while they are peacefully. So there has to be some kind of vetting system. And I feel like there isn’t any going on now with with the masses of people coming through all the time, because there isn’t sufficient border protection. Well, as you know, we’re fast approaching 2 million known God aways into this country since Beijing Biden took over. And I think that those who may be coming in with a nefarious purpose to harm Americans to harm America. I think there’s simpatico with the current Democrat party. I mean, after watching this testimony yesterday, which I’m gonna get to you, you saw these Democrats, they seed with hatred at the United States of America. They hate this country. Greg Meili is our guest right now, folks, Republican candidate, and 2024, for Senate in New Jersey. And you know what that brings me to one of one of your state’s sons who’s running for president. That would be Governor, former Governor Chris Christie. You know, here’s a guy who I think fits this template that I’ve been describing. He thinks the biggest problem in the country is Donald Trump. He has narrowly a scant word, a course word to say about about Beijing Biden and the Democrat Party. Isn’t that the kind of Republican that I’m making reference to that a person who says the greater threat to to the country is conservatism and those who deliver for conservatives, rather than the Democrat party? This is the thing I mean, Chris, Chris, the he’s always been kind of a bully. pulpit personality in the political world, at least. And so I mean, I actually had cases in my law practice defending against his office when he was still in the the prosecutor’s office, and as always, kind of my way or the highway with him. And on the other side of it, though, not too many people, at least in New Jersey, who know him very well take his run for president very seriously, I think he’s just there out of sour grapes from Trump to just come in and try to bash so that the other candidates don’t have to, and then maybe they can get a little more of an advantage. And I mean, this is what he wants to spend his time on. But there’s very few think that he can ever be a serious candidate for office again, let me pivot to the hearing that we saw with the Democrats not being able to defend Joe Biden or Hunter Biden, but so this they attack Trump. Here’s Jim Jordan, talking about how the people changing their story or the Department of injustice in this this US Attorney Weiss, they seem to be changing their story, but it’s the whistleblowers who have been consistent, basically saying the Department of injustice, went soft on Hunter Biden and stopped legitimate investigations because those investigations pointed to the current occupier, the Oval Office, listen to Chairman Jim Jordan. Mr. Weiss can’t get his already straight. Three different stories in a five week timeframe on June 7, he’s, he’s TARS, and he’s super, I got ultimate authority I can do what I want file charges where I want, when I want and how I want. June 30. Well, actually, no, I can’t. And then, of course on July 10, he says to clarify, I haven’t requested Special Counsel status. But I’ve been talking to the folks at Main justice, three different positions. And a little over a month, you know, whose story hasn’t changed? These two guys? Yeah. And actually, those two guys, the IRS agents were correct. Their their testimony has been corroborated by a former FBI agent was also assigned to this case. So you with your legal background, when you hear one side of a court case, continually changing their story, what does that tell you? Clearly, they’re kind of making it up as they go along. And this is the thing I mean, they they couldn’t dispute the facts that were being presented by these guys. And it reminds me of WikiLeaks with Hillary Clinton, for all this, you know, stomping their feet and shouting about that it was released, the information was released. They can dispute the truth of it, and one out, and it’s the same thing here, no one on that panel from the Democratic side, said no, that’s, that’s not an accurate fact, or something like that, or that didn’t happen. There’s nothing like that. So they they distract and deflect away to something else. It’s a common defense attorney tactic in my world, and certainly in the political world as well. Yeah. And you know, criminals do that a lot, too. You know, when when when they’re caught doing a crime, the criminal blames society or blame somebody else for their illegal activity, which I think is it’s kind of interesting to watch Democrats at being the Democrat party being the party of criminals, for criminals, and by criminals, actually adopting those tactics. The last thing, and you know what, I’m not even sure how comfortable you’re going to be on this. But I’m sure you have seen from afar, and I think this is a gift you can give to a Texas audience. You’ve seen from afar how we’ve been conducting our business here in the state of Texas, as it concerns this impeachment of arguably the most conservative Attorney General in the United States. Attorney General Ken Paxton, it was released yesterday, by just the news and other people reporting on this, that the Texas House which you have to know is run by the aforementioned type of Republicans who get up every day and trying to fix their lips on the on the backside of every Democrat that can find those are the kinds of Republicans are in the leadership of the Texas House. Here is the just the news article, Republican House managers chosen by alleged Republican Speaker David feeling a Republican from Beaumont aren’t complying with a discovery order issued by Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick. According to the attorneys. If, if this were a legitimate impeachment, I’m just going to ask for not only for you as a somebody in New Jersey, looking at what’s happening in Texas, but also use your your law experience. If the prosecution doesn’t want to produce the evidence that led to in this case, the filing of the impeachment? What does that tell you? And what does that tell you as a lawyer and then tell me as somebody who lives in New Jersey, how do you see what’s happening here in Texas with this kind of stuff? Well, that certainly reminds about a lot of the FISA applications that were made with false factual allegations. And it only undermines further the public’s mistrust of the system of government and and how these offices operate. It’s become so divisive, just based on ideology, that, that you see results that whoever is making the decision, whatever their political leaning, what a coincidence, that’s how the case comes out a lot and so much harder to to get to the truth and get justice than it used to be. I mean, there certainly was at least some better level of cooperation. And, you know, when, when someone was found, I mean, look at Nixon, right. I mean, he got caught with what he was doing. And I don’t remember a single person. I mean, I was fairly young then. But I don’t remember anyone sort of sticking up for him based on ideology. And then everyone said, this is the kind of integrity issue that we can allow in government. Yeah. And you know, I can imagine that Texas has this reputation did have this reputation as being conservative standing for the rule of law and by and large we do as somebody who lives in New Jersey and you see People in the Republican name acting like frankly, Democrats, doesn’t that doesn’t that kind of give you pause and maybe even ask the question What the hell is going on in Texas? Well, certainly we comparatively, at least love what’s going on in Texas. I mean, of course, you’ve you’ve mentioned a couple of things that that are concerning. But overall, it seems so much better over there as far as how the government operates. And that’s why I mean, Biden, Biden had to take money from the states that operate well as far as budget, and give it to all of the blue states, including ours, that were failing miserably with managing their budget, because there’s no sense of personal responsibility anymore. And I guess that’s really one of the core things in my campaign is to try to restore that I mean, everyone can succeed if they’re enabled. So I’m trying to get what first, certainly less tax revenue collected to begin with, because I think we could be a lot more efficient, but that we do collect, right would want to do enablement programs more so that people can realize their own dreams without being constantly hammered by Democrats to think that they cannot succeed, whether it’s because of a demographic that skin color and ethnicity, whatever it is. I don’t see any of that being a roadblock. Like it may have been many decades ago. But certainly, we see people that can break through all the time, regardless of background, and I think that would translate to the rest of the state if there was just a little more responsibility on the side of the budget and where we direct funds. We also have Governor Murphy has bailed out this Orsted company, which coincidentally is partly owned by Goldman Sachs is for a company in Reuters with taxpayer funds. Keep going on project. Yeah. And we have a thing called home rule that’s supposed to be in place for, in this case, the short towns for this windmill project, right. Sure. You’ve heard a little bit I’ve heard about the windmills that nobody wants in their backyard. But you know, I get it. Hey, look, Mr. mealy, I think back to your original point where you started that, you know, I think the number one thing that the government can do is get the hell out of the way. You’re right. I can attest as your liberty loving Latino that in America, when America is America, there’s nothing that can stand in your way. And the only thing standing in the way of people’s success right now is the Democrat Party, Greg Meili, everybody Republican candidate for US Senate for 2024. If they want to, if anybody in Texas or anybody listening to this, listening to this, this broadcast wants to help you out, where can they go? Well, the best starting point is to look at the website, it’s www dot M E L, E, the number four, and then the word That would be where you can find out more about our campaign, our platform. My history, also, I mean, there’s any wish to donate, or maybe for folks more locally, but to volunteer, although I guess it depends on the skill that folks want to bring. That would be a great place to start and also to reach out to us send us a message. You know, there’s, there’s contact info there as well. Please, you know, help us out with whatever your concern is, because I’m sure we’re thinking the same thing. I mean, we have a big desire to bring back the free market overall, in terms of how it works better than anything the government tries to impose upon man, people. Some people sometimes think that in economics, you can change one variable without affecting the others. And it’s just not true. We also push in the line of free competition school choice as a major thing, which and parental rights we’ve we’ve talked about it for a long time now in our in our camp. And part of that is to just make sure that with those options, we can maybe improve the test scores that are doing so poorly now and go back to teaching the things that kids really need to be equipped with in order to succeed in life. Yeah, we’re fighting Hey, I’m in Texas. In Texas, we’re fighting that same battle here. We’re fighting those same type of Republicans 24 of them, who are who are holding hostage parents and children in this state. Greg Meili, thank you very much, man. Appreciate the visit. And hopefully we can send some help your way. I really appreciate it. Thanks again for having me this morning and enjoy the day over there. That’s gonna put a wrap on this Saucedo storm podcast.
