There are some fundamental truths about America, I think we’re forgetting. And it’s well, it’s not just that we’re forgetting, we’re failing to teach the next generation because we’ve turned our schools over to a bunch of anti American Left wing freaks, the school administrators have done their best to diminish the curriculum to diminish American history to diminish the reading, writing, arithmetic the sciences emphasis, and instead put an emphasis on LGBTQ ABCDEFG Cultural Marxism put a an emphasis on critical race theory, the actual teaching of racism inside of Gov ed.
So our kids are missing out on what it is to be an American, to be honest. And we’re starting to pay a mighty price for it because we continue to elect people who are unqualified to be in positions of power and authority, because they don’t have the sensibilities of preserving this last best hope of mankind on the planet. The first thing they try to dismantle is what America is. They say we are a democracy. You got you got Beijing Biden out there, saying that our very democracy is at stake. Listen to the current occupier of the Oval Office. God help us all.
“That’s why I think that I want to change increase the focus on the fundamentals here, that democracy, literally our democracy is at stake. And, and it’s by altering the institutional structures that protect it. And and I think that I think we’re in real trouble.”
Yeah, we are in real trouble, but not because of anything that President Trump is doing. It’s all because of what you’re doing. We are in real trouble because of you because we’re not a democracy. He’s defending a democracy. That does not exist. A lot of folks have been posting online like this guy here about what we truly are and why.
“America is a republic, not a pure democracy. Contrary to what most people think the Founding Fathers actually feared an unfettered democracy. In Federalist Paper number 10, James Madison wrote that any government based on pure democratic rule has ever been found incompatible with personal security, or the rights of property. What they feared was tyranny of the majority were ruled by simple majority places the lives and property of minority groups at the disposal and whims of those with the power of the vote. Jim Crow era laws provide a classic example, where the majority population was able to suppress the rights of a minority population by popular vote and control of the of law enforcement. Though the founding fathers were only partially successful, the Electoral College and the balance of powers between branches of the federal government were all efforts to minimize the drift toward the tyranny of mob rule. The modern progressive movement with threats to pack the Supreme Court diminish or eliminate the first and second amendments and dissolve the electoral college is working to strip away those protections, moving us increasingly towards authoritarian rule, by an urban high priesthood.”
There you go. That’s what that’s where the left wing is moving us, courtesy of Beijing Biden his regime and his political party and a bunch of Republicans who are either too silly or disinterested in know what’s really going on. Now, they’re Ronald Reagan said this, and he wasn’t the first, there is a gift out there, the gift to see ourselves as others see us.
And there’s a Canadian who’s posting online who’s saying, This is how they view Americans up in Canada and how they view themselves and what’s at stake, not only for our people here in the United States, but those who one day yearn to breathe free. If America falls, there’ll be no place for them to run to.
“You know, here in Canada, we have this big insecurity about the difference between Canadians and Americans, you know, I’m always trying to prove that there’s a difference between Canadians and Americans, we’re more polite, and we’re nicer. And while whatever the real difference between Canadians and Americans, and I’ll tell you what it is, nobody wants to say it is because America, America was born through revolution. Canada was born through compliance. Because the same thing was happening in Canada, as was happening in America at the time, the American Revolution, except that Americans, we didn’t want to take it anymore. And they stood up to the greatest power the world has ever seen, the largest army the world has ever seen. And a bunch of farmers stood up with the muskets and said, No, we’re not taking this anymore, we’re gonna form the greatest democracy the world’s ever seen, and we’re gonna kick your and what happened in Canada, we just rolled over and took it and we begged the monarchy, hey, we’ll pay your taxes, we’ll do all anything you want to just please don’t hurt us. In fact, not a lot of people know this. But Canada wasn’t considered an independent nation, and didn’t separate independently from Britain until 1982. 1982. Now 1776, that’s how far we took it. That’s how long we capitulated and rolled over with 1982. And we still do it to this day, it’s part of our culture, is to sit back and take everything we can from the government and believe everything they say, and do whatever they tell us, because that is where we came from. That is our history. And that is the difference between America and Canada.”
It’s a reverence toward a centralized governing authority, in this case, the monarchy. That’s what Canada, Canada has never broken out of that culture, which is the worship of an all powerful government telling you what to do and how to run your life. The American Revolution, we rebelled against that. But look where we find ourselves, a people gravitating back toward an all powerful government telling us what to do rather than the other way around. And there’s a way they achieved this, the so called smart people, George Carlin had these guys figured out in one of his comedy routines, before he passed away, listen.
“Because that’s all you ever hear about in this country is our differences. That’s all the media and the politicians are ever talking about the things that separate us things that make us different from one another. That’s the way the ruling class operates in any society, they tried to divide the rest of the people, they keep the lower and the middle classes fighting with each other so that they the rich can run off with all the money, fairly simple thing happens to work, you know, anything different. That’s what they’re going to talk about race, religion, ethnic and national background, jobs, income, education, social status, sexuality, anything we can do keep us fighting with each other so that they can keep going to the bank. You know how I describe the economic and social classes in this country. The upper class keeps all of the money pays none of the taxes. The middle class pays all of the taxes does all of the work. The poor are there just to scare the **** or the middle class? from showing up at those jobs?”
Yep, that’s pretty much it in a nutshell, our government. And you know what the royalty did this dictators do this. totalitarians do this, our government is now intentionally keeping us at each other’s throats, so we don’t unite against their tyranny. And that’s exactly what’s unfolding right now. In Washington, DC and, sadly, in Austin, Texas, in the Texas House of Representatives, folks get a lot more to come. The show behind the show with our buddy Sean Chastain roars your way next on the Salcedo storm podcast.
Folks want to get to the show behind the show and our pal Sean Chastain standing by Hey man, how was Chicago bang bang.
Chicago was great. Yeah, went up there to spend a little time with some buddies and hung out. And Saturday was awesome. We took a Friday night. I got into about I got to the condo about 10 ish, 10:30 ish. And a lot of drinkin ensued, and yeah, so that was about till 3:30 in the morning. Oh, we were all moving, moving a little slow Saturday morning. But we got up and we went down to take the river architecture tour. I don’t know if you’ve ever done that, though, is pretty good on this big, huge boat with about 1000 other people. And we’ve got a guy that tells you about all of the buildings that they pass and stuff like that was really interesting, really cool. And just man, it never ceases to amaze me. The amount of craftsmanship in those old turn of the century skyscrapers. You know, it’s just really incredible.
It was, you know, you get the sense it was the height of American slash human genius, that we were having our own Renaissance period. And it’s like, you don’t see that anymore. You know?
Yeah, I think a lot of that craftsmanship is dead and gone. And, you know, because there’s new fancier, quicker ways to do stuff, cheaper ways to do that. And you know, when you’re paying a mason to do some incredible work that you can barely see from the ground. Probably just doesn’t make a whole lot of sense anymore to do that. But yeah, let’s see, it was really it was really, really entertaining and really enjoy. enjoyable. I really like that we also went to while we were waiting to get on the boat, we found the original old goat, Bar and Grill. And it probably doesn’t mean anything to you. Unless you’re a fan of old Saturday Night Live skits and the cheeseburger cheeseburger cheeseburger.
I have no idea what the hell that is.
With John Belushi that way back in the 70s You know, this angry Greek guy wouldn’t allow you to get a hamburger. It was only a cheeseburger. And no Coke, Pepsi, you know, like, so it was really? I don’t know, look it up. It’s funny. And it was based on a bar there in Chicago when they were doing their second city comedy troupe stuff.
Well, naturally that the question I had for you is surrounding, you know, the crime the rampid crime. It is it is off the charts and all these these left wing cities and Chicago being one of the most deadly if not the most deadly city. Did you see any evidence of of the decline of the ones great Americans cities.
You know, really didn’t it’s not the cleanest city in the world downtown. But it’s not the worst either. Everybody you know, when you go downtown, it’s it’s such a tourist area that I imagine they probably do a better job of policing there than they do, you know, say the south side or something like that.
But how is it compared to Dallas? You know, because you and I know Dallas fairly well as a matter fact, I went over the weekend I went to Dallas, and I was talking to a buddy of mine. Well, you probably know him. You don’t know him personally. But you know, Mike Berger is the former meteorologist over at CBS 11. He was over at Fox for two for a while. Anyways, he’s he’s an icon here in North Texas. So I met up with him, we had lunch, and we’re just I said, you know, it’s been a while since I’ve been over to the side of the metroplex. And man, the graffiti is, is, is really downgraded. It isn’t as beautiful as it used to be. And so we were laughing at how, you know, it’s it’s a Democrat run city, and actually not anymore. Now. It’s it’s got a mayor, a mayor who’s a Republican, but the City Council is is Democrat. And so how does that compare? How does Dallas compare with Chicago?
Well, Chicago, and like New York, and other major metropolitan says that they actually have mass transit, which no city in Texas really does. You know, so we took the train to downtown. And it’s also a walk in city man, you’re going to do some hope. And if you’re gonna go to Chicago, and one of the things I found the same way that I, when I experienced New York for the first time, because I thought I was going to be really overwhelmed with New York. But when you get there, you realize that it’s a whole bunch of little towns jammed into one big package. Because every neighborhood has its own thing going on. It’s got its own little bodegas, you know, where you can just really within blocks, you can get everything you need. Restaurants, and, and hardware stores, and, you know, grocery shops and stuff like that. So every every little neighborhood was like that. And it’s really fascinating, because generally, people are pretty nice. You know, I found that even in New York, that everybody was super nice.
Wait a minute, how long ago? Did you visit New York? Because I’ve been within the last year. And that’s not at all my experience. It was the 10th anniversary of 911.
Okay, yeah. So it’s been a while since you’ve been let me just tell you in New York, New York is just it is it is very much a city in decline. You’ve got over there, you’ve got declared socialists who are in charge. But again, I guess what I was asking you to do is make a comparison, cleanliness wise.
Well, that’s what I was getting. So yeah, unlike Dallas, Dallas isn’t, doesn’t have little neighborhoods like that, where you can get everything. I mean, you’re pretty much going to have to go, you know, to Home Depot, if you want some hardware stuff, you’re not going to find it in a little corner shop. So that’s what I thought was fascinating. And then again, you know, when when you’re going walking through those neighborhoods and stuff, people are just nice. And then everybody’s just hanging out. And so it was really a small town. atmosphere when you’re in those neighborhoods. Right. Yeah. You know, we, we didn’t go to the bad side of town. We didn’t go to the south side, we it was a pretty fluid area where we were so it was it was pretty nice.
And why is that? Why is it the North always seems to be the nicer part of town wherever town you’re in. Because, you know, the south side of Dallas is, you know, has a tradition of being a hole, you know, and because of the way they take care of it, they don’t.
And this goes back to railroads. Think so? So yeah, because that was the other side of the train or the side of the tracks. Yeah. Don’t know why the north side would be other than just geography, you know, probably that that you had one nice side of town and usually where all the blue collar workers lived.
Maybe a civil war psychology. You know, the South is always bad North is always good.
No, I don’t think so. I felt that but anyway, so yeah, so the whole trip was fun. We did that Saturday and then had some just outstanding sushi. Saturday night, then went to a Cubs game on Sunday. Nice. And yeah, so we were down to that. And it was it was just amazing to see Wrigley Field when you’ve just seen it on TV or seeing you know, seeing it in, in popular culture, your whole life, but then to see it in real life. It’s just like, Wow, that’s incredible. And yeah, so man. Yeah, it’s just a great trip and no problems with the flights.
Cool, man. Well, if I ever go to Chicago and I have no desire to go there. I think the only thing that would attract me would be would be Wrigley Field to see the historic Wrigley Field. I think that would be one of the highlights, if not the only one.
I mean, if you can leave your politics and just enjoy it as a city, you’d have a great time now. So well, you know, when I was in I was in New York, about three or four years ago, I was in New York, and actually make that make that six or seven, six or seven years ago, I did the Carnegie Deli and all that kind of stuff. And when you allow yourself to immerse yourself in that way, you know, I would agree with you. But this last time I went to New York a year ago, it was hard to ignore the politics. It was when it’s in your face, and you can’t ignore it. It’s a problem while you’re gone. Speaking of rule, rule of law and law and order, Elon Musk paid a visit to our state to the state of Texas. And he went down to the border and this this was, he was there with, you know, a couple of fake Republicans drawing attention to this open border and just just you’re watching this all being live streamed and all these illegal aliens pouring in right there, and the social media influencers and the MSNBS crowd and the CNN crowd were livid that he was down there and the only thing I could glean was they were so upset that he was down there drawing attention to what they would rather keep a secret all the harm being done to Texas. They want to keep it a secret and because the all they could do was just blast him for shining a light on this massive uncontrolled rampant illegal immigration.
Yeah, yeah, I got no problem with it going down there. Probably ought to get better cowboy hat if he’s gonna do that. But it’s a little a little goofy. I guess. I don’t know for quite an felt hat season yet. But anyway. Yeah, he you know, to bring attention to the border. That’s why I, you know, was against Abbott bussing migrants. At first, I just thought it was a waste of taxpayer money and just a stunt. But it did its job. It got a whole lot of attention drawn toward the border. And I think Elon Musk, you know, the richest dude in the world. And has, you know, a billion followers or whatever. Yeah, He’s gonna bring some attention to it. And then there’s, there’s no lion when you just sit there and let the camera roll and watch people stream across. Yep. And with without any without any buddy stopping them or no rule. Yeah, no rule. They don’t have the people to do both the the processing and do the protecting. Yep, I don’t know. It’s it’s ridiculous, man.
Also, while you were gone. Finish up your thoughts on that?
Oh, I was just gonna say it just cracks me up that, you know, I think Chicago has gotten what 10,000? Yeah, somewhere there abouts. Which is, which is what came across last Tuesday. Exactly. 10,000, you know, yeah.
And one day, and so that’s what Texas had to endure. And it just makes me laugh. And in particular, what who was it? It was Congressman Pflueger from Texas who said, okay, and now their big idea is since now the Democrats are the sanctuary Democrats are complaining and moaning about all the illegal aliens and it’s like, it’s a pittance compared to what we’re getting. Now. They’re openly advocating the Texas that remain in Texas policy. It’s just they should stay in Texas. We’re so pro illegal immigration and pro illegal alien, but we can’t have them here. I mean, they’re hypocrites to the highest order. No. Right. Yeah, I think so. While you’re gone to. Something happened in the the legislature, the federal legislature, they continue to overspending criminally overspending. The Republicans working with Democrats to cut 0, 0 spending from what they have been this profligate irresponsible spending they’ve been undertaking, which has led to $33 trillion in debt. And that’s going to lead to the calling this week by conservatives for the head of the Speaker of the House, Kevin McCarthy because and there is some validity to this every single inflection point where they’ve had some sort of muscle to be able to stop the Democrats pain that they’ve been inflicting on the country. They haven’t acted. But that’s not what I want you to focus on because I don’t want you to focus on the politics. What I want you to focus on as a government image. Jamaal Bowman is a big fat Democrat. Socialist, he’s a he’s a socialist, and he’s a former high school principal during the proceedings and an attempt to stop the proceedings because the Democrats wanted to shut down. They wanted to shut down the government. And there was bipartisanship that was going to prevent the shutdown, and they wanted to stop it. So Jamaal Bowman pulls down the fire alarm inside the House of Representatives, okay. Now, this is in violation of several laws. It’s against the law to do that in and of itself. But now you’ve got Marjorie Taylor Greene and other conservatives saying this guy stopped and interrupted an official proceeding in the capitol by doing this and by the way, they’ve got him on camera, doing it. It’s it’s not like it’s not like they it’s oh, maybe he did or didn’t do it. They’ve got him on surveillance video pulling it and his excuses. I thought that that red lever was going to open the door that was locked. I had no idea that it was a fire alarm, even though it says right on their fire alarm. What is your take on this?
Well, it’s it’s like Biden’s German Shepherd. There seems to be rules for some Democrats and rules for just your average everyday citizen, because you are I pull a fire alarm. And we’re in big trouble. I mean, possible criminal trouble depending on the situation, right. You know, if it’s, if it’s a third grader trying to be funny, probably not gonna go to jail. You and me trying to create a panic? Yeah, we’re probably it’s not gonna go well, no. And so it’s like Biden’s dog. 11 Secret Service agents bit. Two or three of them had to go to the hospital. And yet, I know here in Texas, that if your dog bites somebody, first of all, it’s you have to impound it for like 30 or 60 days, something like that. And then if he does it again, you don’t have to put him down. There’s just, you know, no, if ands or buts about that. So his dog bites 11 different people. And there it is, you know, pooping on the on the Westlawn there. And so it’s just, I don’t know, it just you know, again, hypocrisy. Just crazy.
I know you’re not on x. But they’re there. These two brothers, Ed krassin. Steen and Bryan Cranston Steen, big left wing nut jobs. And these guys are they’re trying to excuse what Jamaal Bowman did. And his excuse when he rolled out his excuse. It was like a I didn’t realize and I already told you that it was. I thought it was going to open the door. So they’re actually trying to make a defense. So your defense is either you’re dumber than a sack of rocks. And you don’t know what a fire alarm looks like. And as a former high school principal, you should know. So it’s So either you’re dumber than a sack of rocks, and you shouldn’t be in Congress, or you broke the law and you should be in jail. Right? Yeah. Right. I mean, that those are really your only two options. Right? I know, hypocrisy. The most so anything else we’re missing?
No, I you brought it up just a little bit ago about Dallas Mayor Johnson. switching parties.
Yeah, yeah. And well, you remember I was he came on as a Democrat, he came on our show, and we had a lot of areas of agreement. He he was certainly more more centrist than left, you know, in in how he went about things. But I had a discussion with somebody this week. And it was like, you know, I could never trust Eric Johnson. And I understand why people who voted for him would be upset. It would it would take a long time to trust him as a Republican. But some people switch parties like that to Republicans because they see the light, right? They see the hypocrisy of the Democrat Party. They see just how truly terrible it is.
Dude, he didn’t know. In his defense, I gotta say, Shawn, in his defense, he’s pretty much not changed his positions on anything. He’s he’s been consistent. He just realizing, oh, my gosh, my positions are antithetical to the the Marxist and the socialist who now run the Democrat party. I would trust Mayor Eric Adams. Eric Adams over Eric Johnson, Eric Johnson over John Cornyn because John Cornyn is out there saying all the right things and stabbing me in the back, at least Eric Johnson has been has been consistent in his positions. Whereas, you know, I would never try. I can’t trust John Cornyn.
Right. It’s good. Like I said, it will take a while for me to believe him and trust him. I hope he gets the chance to serve as mayor as a Republican. Me too. But I don’t know if that will happen or not, if given the liberal leanings of Dallas. But so anyway, I just, you know, if he, if he truly saw the light, and you know, maybe he’s voted Democrat. You know, maybe it’s family has generationally. I know there are a lot of people like that, that. Well, Mom and Dad are Democrats. So you know, grandma and grandpa were Democrat. So I guess I’ll vote Democrat to without really, you know, without really understanding the platform. Yeah. Yeah. Hopefully he saw the light and hopefully he does good things with it.
Yeah, maybe he’ll challenge John Cornyn, who knows? Shawn Chastain, everybody. Hey, buddy, thank you very much for the visit. Glad to have you back. And we’ll talk to you next week.
All right, peace out.
