    Live from Music Row, Monday 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 the original all-star panelist Crom Carmichael to the studio for another edition of Crom’s Crommentary. CROM CARMICHAEL: It’s interesting, Michael, to listen to the Democrats, and especially Joe Manchin. Especially Joe Manchin’s claim that they have not raised taxes on people making under $400,000. Now, I want to tell you what the … federal program that administers, that looks at the effects of legislation on taxes. It says that 97 percent of people making between $100,000 and $200,000 will see a tax increase. It says 91 percent of people making between $75,000 and $100,000 will see a tax increase, 61 percent of people making between $40,000 and $50,000, and 24 percent of people making between $10,000 and $12,000. But let me say this. They’re wrong in this sense. One hundred percent of everybody making over $10,000 – in fact, 100 percent of everybody making anything – will see a...
    Live from Music Row, Friday 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. – official guest host Aaron Gulbransen welcomed the original all-star panelist Crom Carmichael to the studio for another edition of Crom’s Crommentary. CROM CARMICHAEL: But the Crommentary is part of why I’m unhappy, all right? And that is Kyrsten Sinema looks like she’s going to sign on to this bill that the Biden administration and the Democrats have cooked up that is supposed to say ay it reduces the deficit, which is just farcical what they’ve done. And it’s terrible how the media is reporting. But let me just give you a few little tidbits. When Biden ran, he promised to not raise taxes on anybody making over $400,000. Okay? That’s what he did. He said that. Now, let me ask you, Aaron, let’s say that you’re paying $5,000 a year in taxes, and the next year your real income goes down, but you’re paying $6,500 in taxes. You’re paying $1,500 more than...

CROM CARMICHAEL: I’ve been watching the news and I’ve been watching events. We all have. But I’m worried that there’s something more sinister afoot. And I say that because the news media in this country is in absolute lockstep to the words, in other words, to the phrases, that they use on all the issues. And they were in lockstep on COVID. It turns out much of what was said was false and actually quite harmful to a lot of people. They were in lockstep when it came to the way that we got out of Afghanistan. While they were a little bit critical, they dropped that hot potato as quickly as they could. And now, most recently, on Hunter Biden and the Russia hoax. If you’ll recall the Russia hoax, the media was...
    Live from Music Row, 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 the original all-star panelist Crom Carmichael to the studio for another edition of Crom’s Crommentary. CROM CARMICHAEL: Michael, I look at our country, and I look at our state, and I look at our city. So let’s start with the city first. We have a mayor, when he ran, [who] said that he would be a fiscal conservative, and he was opposed to property tax increases. And now he’s pushing an amendment – Amendment One – he’s pushing an amendment to take away from voters any opportunity to correct mistakes, i.e., tax increases that the council and that the mayor will pass. And so for all of our listeners, if you do care about your own property taxes, you need to vote against Amendment One. If you want property taxes to go up, then of course, by all means, vote for it, because you will see your property taxes,...
    Live from Music Row, Monday 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 the original all-star panelist Crom Carmichael to the studio for another edition of Crom’s Crommentary. CROM CARMICHAEL: Michael, on July 22nd, there was a very interesting column in the – actually they called it a commentary, (laughter) and the title of it is “Ill Democratic Omens in Education Poll.” Now, I did not know this, that in 2017, the Gallup poll showed that the Democrats on the subject of education had a 19-point advantage over Republicans in 2017. I had no idea. Gallup, sometimes they get it wrong, but they are a legitimate polling organization. Now, what they’re finding is, in battleground states, they found that 39 percent of respondents have more confidence in Republicans to deal with education than Democrats. Democrats are 38. So essentially it’s a toss-up. But here’s what’s interesting. Here’s what’s very interesting, and that is that voters are also substantially likelier to have a...

CROM CARMICHAEL: I was going to tie a local issue, which is Amendment One, to an international issue, which is when did Biden get COVID? Because we have a video of Biden giving speeches in the Middle East where he looks absolutely terrible. He’s coughing, he says he has headaches. The fact that he’s incoherent is not newsworthy. But the fact that he looked so terrible and was coughing and had headaches. So here he is in the Middle East meeting with all these dignitaries, and it could be that he had COVID at that time. And the French lady that acts as his newsperson, when asked when did he get it said, I don’t think it matters. And they wouldn’t answer the question about when he actually got COVID. So it’s quite possible...

CROM CARMICHAEL: Michael, this Crommentary is really about a theme that you and I have discussed since you’ve asked me to be on your show, and that is equal treatment under the law and really dealing from the same set of facts that if you can’t agree on the facts, it’s very difficult to have a discussion that is going to result in a positive outcome. But this video of that young fellow, and I don’t have any idea what his name is, but it went viral of AOC walking up the steps of the Capitol and then him pointing out that she is pro-abortion and that she’s cute. And then he talks about her behind, which she’s clearly very proud of because she wore a dress with Tax the Rich painted across her...

CROM CARMICHAEL: Michaelm this commentary is not about any particular thing that’s happened. When you look at all the things that are happening that are inspired by leftist thinking and then you see what the results are, you begin to recognize that the way the Left thinks and the way they want to organize the world is through pure force. And even when things don’t work exactly the way that they expected, or in fact worked out to be exactly the opposite of what they say, they continue with the idea of force. There was a testimony yesterday; I don’t know the name of the female professor from one of the universities in California, and she was testifying before a Senate committee over Roe v. Wade. It became clear that she thinks that a...

    Live from Music Row, Friday 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 the original all-star panelist Crom Carmichael to the studio for another edition of Crom’s Crommentary. CROM CARMICHAEL: Michael, a couple of shows ago we talked about I mentioned that Biden had presented his budget to Congress. Now he’s presented it two months late, but here’s what’s interesting. The assumptions are five months old. So, for example in this year’s budget, he is projecting that inflation will be 2.9 percent. Now, inflation is 8 percent, but his projections are 2.9 percent. In his budget plan, he has 36 tax increases that he says will collect $2.5 trillion. He has a 36 percent corporate tax increase, and he plans to increase taxes on domestic fossil fuels by $45 billion. Now, the media isn’t talking about Biden’s budget at all, but here’s what else is interesting. Biden, right now here are the headwinds that Democrats have going into this election. 88 percent...
    Live from Music Row, Friday 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 the original all-star panelist Crom Carmichael to the studio for another edition of Crom’s Crommentary. CROM CARMICHAEL: Michael, this commentary is not being said in reaction to all of this hubbub about Larry Arnn and Governor Lee. I actually had this commentary ready last night based on some articles that I have read recently about education. This is a story is from Newsmax, and the headline is: How to Really Be an Anti-Racist. And the answer is to teach black children to read. Now then the article goes on to talk about what a terrible job our current public school system is doing in teaching black children to read. And so you have to ask the question if our system and I would ask this to the guest who was on here, and I would get the data, and I would hold it up. And I think that probably...
    Live from Music Row, 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 the original all-star panelist Crom Carmichael to the studio for another edition of Crom’s Crommentary. CROM CARMICHAEL: Michael, there are two or three articles that are very interesting about the CDC and about the science. First of all, there was an article in The Wall Street Journal. And the headline is: “These Days It’s News When the CDC Does Something Right.” And this is a story about, there were five children in Alabama who mysteriously fell ill last fall with hepatitis. The CDC has investigated this and has concluded that there is not some secret virus that’s building; that in fact, the number of these hepatitis cases is not particularly large, and has essentially said we’re on top of this issue. It’s not growing, and it’s not going to be a huge problem. That’s where the CDC is now. But what’s interesting about that is that the NBC Today...
    Live from Music Row, Monday 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 the original all-star panelist Crom Carmichael to the studio for another edition of Crom’s Crommentary. CROM CARMICHAEL: You know, Michael, obviously the big news is the Supreme Court decision on Friday that overturned Roe v. Wade. And I think equally newsworthy is the reaction to that ruling by the Democrat Party, which – would be redundant for me to call the Democrat Party the hard left because that’s what it has … it’s synonymous with that term. What’s interesting about the ruling is that there are two important parts to the ruling. One is widely discussed. The other, frankly, I haven’t seen discussed very much. And one, obviously, is where the Supreme Court ruled that Roe v. Wade and [Planned Parenthood v.] Casey were both bad rulings and that they had been overturned. But the other part of the ruling that I think is even more important because it’s...
    Live from Music Row, Friday 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 the original all-star panelist Crom Carmichael to the studio for another edition of Crom’s Crommentary. CROM CARMICHAEL: Michael, I am watching what’s going on in Washington and across the country and primarily from the things that Democrats are doing and saying. And every time I think they can’t do something more self-inflicting, more wounds on themselves, they do Biden. First of all, Biden is blaming high gas prices on Putin. But here’s what the American people know for a fact. The American people know that on Biden’s first day in office, he canceled the Keystone XL pipeline and halted new leases for ANWR, which is where we were producing a great deal of oil. That’s the Alaskan Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, which was taking a teeny weeny little part of it, and drilling for oil. And then the next week, he banned new oil and gas leases on...
    Live from Music Row, 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 the original all-star panelist Crom Carmichael to the studio for another edition of Crom’s Crommentary. CROM CARMICHAEL: Michael, when you look at politics and what people care about, and you make a list of the things that people care about, a lot of times something that is not on the top of the list is actually very important because of the level of intensity that people care about that particular issue. So while right now inflation and energy prices are listed as the number one issues, and people do feel incredibly strongly about that – and that’s where Biden and the Democrats are in so much trouble, because their policies are causing the inflation and especially the rapidly rising cost in energy. But the other thing that’s now happening is crime. And I’m going to take crime and actually talk about it from the standpoint of two tiers of justice....
    Live from Music Row, 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 the original all-star panelist Crom Carmichael to the studio for another edition of Crom’s Crommentary. CROM CARMICHAEL: Michael, I was reading some articles in I don’t remember whether it was The Wall Street Journal or The Washington Free Beacon, might have been Western Journal, might have even been The Epoch Times. They connected me to a site called cfa.org. And the question on the headline is, is it ethical to purchase a lithium battery to power an EV? And here are some interesting little factoids about lithium batteries. Lithium batteries are 1,000 pounds. A typical lithium battery for an EV is 1,000 pounds. It has to have, obviously, lithium. But of the 1,000 pounds of that is lithium. A lithium mine uses these big caterpillar hauling trucks called 797s. Each one of those trucks burns 500,000 gallons of diesel fuel a year. A typical mine will have 35 of...

CROM CARMICHAEL: You know, Michael, I read an interesting article in The Wall Street Journal on June 13th, and the title of it is called “The Incredible Sinking Yen.” And they’re talking about the Japanese economy, and the yen in particular. And there’s something in this article that caught my eye, and that is the total debt for Japan, which is 2.5 times their GMP. We’re now approaching one and a quarter times ours. And so we’re not at their level now. They don’t have the same kind of unfunded liabilities that we have in this country. And they’re still holding their interest rates at near zero. They are beginning to have some inflation. Their inflation over there is 2.5 percent, but they’re holding their interest rates at near zero. And here’s the...
    Live from Music Row Monday 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 original all-star panelist Crom Carmichael to the studio for another edition of Crom’s Crommentary. CROM CARMICHAEL: There are a couple of things that I have watched – either the clips of, or watched live. But most of it is the clips. And the three things that I want to kind of tie together are Jimmy Kimmel’s interview of Biden, Janet Yellen’s testimony before the House Committee on Budget and Finance, and then the January 6 hearings. And what’s interesting about Jimmy Kimmel and Janet Yellen is, I’ve decided that Jimmy Kimmel and Janet Yellen both understand economics about as well as each other. And that means not at all. Because Biden sat there in front of Jimmy Kimmel and said that the United States economy is growing at the fastest rate of any country in the world. And then he repeated it, and Jimmy Kimmel sat there like Janet...
    Live from Music Row 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. – guest host Gulbransen welcomed original all-star panelist Crom Carmichael to the studio for another edition of Crom’s Crommentary. CROM CARMICHAEL: I spent a week on vacation with my family, but I paid attention to the news. And it’s really interesting, Aaron, what has happened since the last time I was in the studio. A jury in Washington, D.C, concluded that [Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Michael] Sussmann was not guilty of lying to the FBI, even though the foreman of the jury, after the trial was over, acknowledged that Sussmann did lie to the FBI but said that what he said really shouldn’t have even been brought to trial. He shouldn’t have been indicted because of one reason or another. And so what you have is, you now know that a Democrat is unlikely to get convicted of something that’s political in nature in Washington, D.C. And this gets back to so...
    Live from Music Row 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 original all-star panelist Crom Carmichael to the studio for a special conversational edition of Crom’s Crommentary. Leahy: An ominous event yesterday; tragic, evil. Nineteen elementary school children and two adults were murdered allegedly by now-deceased suspect, 18-year-old Salvador Ramos. It’s just a tragic, evil instance that you just cannot explain. Carmichael: I’m guessing, because we don’t know everything we will eventually know about the killer, but I’m guessing that his life was incredibly troubled. Leahy: I do have a little bit of information about him. It’s in the New York Post, 18 years old. Apparently, the reports are he bought the two rifles that he used shortly after his 18th birthday, very recently. He had worked at a Wendy’s there in town. He attended the Uvalde High School. He worked at a Wendy’s there, was considered a loner, and quit his job a month ago. And had apparently been...

CROM CARMICHAEL: Michael, last week, Baxter Lee, who is no longer running for Congress because he is not being allowed to, sent me an article that wasn’t even an article. It was a lawsuit about the SEC acting as the judge, jury, and prosecutor against a defendant. And this is the Fifth Circuit ruling that the SEC did something improper, that you can’t be the prosecutor, the judge, and the jury. Baxter sent me the lawsuit. The article is in The Wall Street Journal under “Constitutional Thunder out of the Fifth Circuit.” And it is about this lawsuit. And what happened was, there was a person who did something that the SEC decided was wrong. And then the SEC then referred that to an internal judge in the SEC. That internal judge then ruled against...

CROM CARMICHAEL: Michael, I did not watch all of Biden’s speech in Buffalo, but I have watched a whole bunch of different sound bites, and I’ve seen a bunch of commentary on it. And it may be the darkest speech that any president has ever given. You have a terrible tragedy in Buffalo, where there were 10 or 12 people, 13 people [shot]. And almost all of those people were black, but some of the people were white who were [shot or] killed. Biden, rather than trying to heal the community and speak to the nation in compassionate terms, gave a speech that was just full of anger and full of hate. And it’s really quite sad. And by the way, the person who perpetrated these things is mentally ill and obviously a very angry...

CROM CARMICHAEL: Michael, I have been watching this stuff on the baby formula issue, and I’ve done the best I can to try to understand the origin of the problem. And Pete Buttigieg was on the Sunday morning programs, and what he said was just completely and utterly false and shameless. The man has no shame at all. Because the FDA … And by the way, we all know Anthony Fauci’s name. We know that he as the head of the CDC took every possible side on every single issue having to do with COVID, whether it was masks are good, masks are bad. The vaccine is good, the vaccine is bad, in the sense that it will keep you from getting COVID. It will keep you from spreading COVID all the way, finally,...
    Live from Music Row 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 original all-star panelist Crom Carmichael to the studio for another edition of Crom’s Crommentary. CROM CARMICHAEL: Michael, on Monday, I alluded to the Biden administration and the Democratic Party in general fighting against charter schools, vouchers – anything that gives parents choice. And this is a particularly sad story. This is in Minnetonka, Minnesota. There’s a charter school there called Lionsgate Academy. And it works especially with children who have autism. And that’s a significant problem in this country. And the regular government-run schools are just not equipped to handle and help kids with autism. And in fact, kids with autism oftentimes make it difficult for the other children to learn. And so the Lionsgate Academy was formed, and in 2008, it had 61 students. Now it has 340 students on three different campuses. It has a waiting list of more than 200 families. And yet the Minnesota...
    Live from Music Row Friday 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. – official guest host Grant Henry welcomed original all-star panelist Crom Carmichael to the studio for another edition of Crom’s Crommentary. CROM CARMICHAEL: Grant, you know, I was listening to the interview as I was driving in, and the doctor is exactly right. That the evidence and the evidence has been around for a long, long time, that if you’ve gotten COVID and recovered, your immunities are stronger than if you took the vaccine. But Anthony Fauci for two years denied that they even had the data. Now, the data was clear all over the world, except for somehow the CDC didn’t have the data, but it did. It just didn’t want to expose it. And there are 21,000 people at the CDC. Now, can you think of a single thing that would be more important, especially pre-vaccine? Can you think of a single thing that would be more important than...

CROM CARMICHAEL: Whoever the leaker is, what they did was they have created enormous problems for the Supreme Court itself as an institution, and will certainly create a problem for themselves. And … there are only 45 choices, and there are only 36 that are going to be sat down and be interviewed by a federal official. So it’s a serious matter. My Crommentary is on a similar subject. I’m not going to get this name right, so I’m going to give it to you if you would read that name to me. (Leahy reads) Nusrat Choudhury. She is up for a judicial appointment and she was testifying before the Senate … Senate Judiciary Committee. And Senator Kennedy asked her the following question. When Senator Kennedy from Louisiana slammed the nominee about the...

CROM CARMICHAEL: Michael, you’re prescient here. The first thing I read over the weekend was a review of a movie called Munich. And the review of the movie says that the goal of the movie is to rehabilitate Neville Chamberlain. And as I read the review that they’re trying to say that Neville Chamberlain was actually very clever, and what he was really trying to do is buy additional time so that the British could rearm for the Second World War, that he wasn’t really a pacifist and a fool and all the other things that have typically been ascribed to Neville Chamberlain. And so I sat there and looked at that, and I said, you know, that’s kind of interesting, because that gets into this whole question of misinformation and disinformation. Then I thought...

CROM CARMICHAEL: Michael, yesterday, the Supreme Court heard a very, very important case, Texas versus Biden. And the Wall Street Journal wrote a very interesting article about that case. It appeared on Monday. So it was before the case was heard. There was a law passed in 1996 and Biden voted for the law. The law says that migrants who are, ‘Not clearly and beyond doubt, (not reasonable doubt, beyond doubt,) entitled to be admitted shall be detained.’ It goes on to say that the law also says that DHS can parole individual migrants on a case by case basis for urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit. That’s what the law that was passed in 1996 says. According to some reports I read this morning about the hearing yesterday, the case by case part of the 1996 law is what some justices may try to hang their hat on to allow...

CROM CARMICHAEL: Michael, there were three articles in the paper that I read over the weekend, and they’re all related. They’re not on the same subject, but they’re all related to the same topic. And one of the headlines is: “Several Million U.S. Workers Seen Staying Out of the Workforce Indefinitely.” Several million. Now you hear Biden talk about inflation. Now it’s not his fault. It’s Putin’s fault. Well, actually, it’s Biden’s fault. Part of the reason that we have inflation and that we have supply chain issues is that we have an extreme labor shortage. One of the reasons we have an extreme labor shortage is the federal government has once again extended the COVID emergency. So the federal benefits are still going out. So people are still being paid not to work....
    Live from Music Row Friday 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 original all-star panelist Crom Carmichael to the studio for another edition of Crom’s Crommentary. CROM CARMICHAEL: Michael, there are three things that are going on at the same time and they’re all related. One is CNN Plus is imploding even though owes a great and mighty Chris Wallace left Fox News and went to CNN. Because CNN believed that Chris Wallace was popular. And he never has been popular. He’s always been kind of a daddy’s boy. And he’s made a lot of money because he was Mike Wallace’s son. But CNN is now imploding. And what’s interesting is when he left, he was there 18 years, paid millions of dollars for at least each of the last 10 years. And when he left, he was very ungracious. He did an interview in The Western Journal and he sneered at the network, at Fox network and his viewers...

CROM CARMICHAEL: (Carmichael hums “Love Theme from The Godfather”) This reminds me of Tessio. The part where they find out that Tessio had turned on Michael and they’re now going to put him in the car. And Tessio realizes he’s about to be taken out and killed. And he turns and says to Hogan, can you talk to Mike for me? He says, no, it’s business, Tessio. It’s business. This is what’s now happened to Joe Biden. I saw a clip on Tucker Carlson last night and they showed Joe Biden with Barack Obama at the White House. And literally, no one in the room would speak to the President of the United States. Everybody had their back turned to him no matter which way he turned. People had their backs turned and they were...

CROM CARMICHAEL: Michael, a lot did happen over the weekend, but it is compounded by all the other things that are happening. And this really has to do with Biden’s foreign policy. And it’s not just one thing. This goes back to Robert Gates, in his book. He said he’s not made a single foreign policy decision that’s correct in his entire career. So let’s just review where we are now and the problems it’s creating. Biden seems to be determined to do a deal with the Iranians. The Iranians keep upping the ante. And Biden appears to be acquiescing that he’s going to take the death squad that used to be run by Soleimani, which is an Iranian death squad, and Trump put them on the terrorist list. Biden is now determined to take...

CROM CARMICHAEL: Michael, I’ve watched many of the clips of the hearings for Judge Ketanji Jackson. But what’s also interesting about this question about the fact that she’s unable to define a woman is that Senator Blackburn in her opening statement the day before, really made it very clear what Senator Blackburn’s interests were about Title IX and a whole bunch of other things. And so the question itself should not have come as a surprise. Senator Blackburn, I think, was completely taken aback by the answer and the nation ought to be completely taken aback, and women. I have a granddaughter who is a girl. I have another who’s in her teens playing high school volleyball. I have another grandbaby who’s a girl. And I want my female grandchildren’s rights to be protected. And...

CROM CARMICHAEL: Alrighty, Michael. Well, I’m going to ask our audience to put on their thinking cap just for a second. And I’m going to ask them, what do Apple, Google, and Tesla all have in common? What do Apple, Tesla, and Google all have in common? (Hums “Jeopardy” theme) The answer is they’re all being sued for discrimination. Okay? Here are these Woke companies. They actually are doing their absolute best to try to lift up people of color in this country. They’re doing their very best. Google hired a person, a black lady whose job has given her millions of dollars to go to America’s finest college campuses and recruit black people to become employees at Google. Apple does the same thing. Tesla does the same thing. Facebook does the same thing. What...

CROM CARMICHAEL: This actually goes to your call with the gentleman from Blount County. And that is that people who are treated differently by the government view the world differently. The gentleman who Hunter Biden dropped his laptop off and then he took that laptop and turned over the laptop to the FBI, he is now all but broke. He is reportedly going to declare bankruptcy. And it’s a sad thing. Congress just passed a 21 percent increase in the amount it can spend on its office staff. When you have inflation, that affects everybody else and the middle and lower-income people the most, what do the Democrats in Congress do? They pass a bill to increase the amount of money that they can pay their own employees. And many members of Congress, and I’m...

CROM CARMICHAEL: Michael, there have been two things that have happened against women in the last 48 hours, certainly 72 hours. One is against women that turned out to be an attempt to be for women, and the other is just flat-out against women. And what’s interesting is women’s groups are doing absolutely nothing, which really shows you that the women’s groups have never really been about women, they’ve always been about politics. And the women’s groups of note are on the Left, and always have been. Recently, and this is from the National Review – on February 3rd, so I missed this previously – 16 UPenn swimmers signed a letter labeling male participation unfair. Now, for our listeners, there is a swimmer for the University of Pennsylvania who used to be a man, and...

CROM CARMICHAEL: I watched our Vice President in Poland answer two questions, but the one that was shocking, absolutely shocking, was her answer to the question of: At what point does the Biden administration change policy to lower the price of gasoline? That may not be the exact wording of the question, but it was a question on the price of gasoline. And her answer was that she had been talking with the president of Romania about the Black Sea. And I guess since oil is black, and the Black Sea has black in the name the Black Sea, somehow she confuses the Black Sea with a sea of black oil. But she won’t answer the question. And I think that that was on purpose. I think she’s a complete screw-up, but I think,...

CROM CARMICHAEL: I’m going to tie this into your interview with Senator Bell, which was very interesting. He pointed out that when you get into criminal issues, the burden is with the state or actually it’s not even necessarily criminal. I guess it could even be civil because I don’t know if the Chevron case is criminal or if it’s civil, but if you’re in an argument with the state, maybe it is criminal. They try to make the burden harder for the state than the individual or for the company because the state is always bigger than the opposition. And I listened. I said, you know, that’s exactly right. And he pointed out that Chevron is a big company, but most of the cases don’t deal with big companies. And so the Chevron...

CROM CARMICHAEL: Michael, you saw the story where Putin has now dropped a bomb on a nuclear facility in Ukraine which is apparently the largest nuclear facility in Europe. And I was very pleased to see in Kamala Harris’s comments that she knows that Ukraine is part of Europe and that it is situated next to a much larger country called Russia. I don’t know if you saw that clip. It was hysterical on one hand in a funny way and embarrassing in equal measures on another. But anyway, we look at what’s going on and we look at how the Biden administration is reacting to all this. We’re still buying 500 million barrels of oil a day from Russia. And I saw an interesting story that 70 percent of I believe that’s correct,...

CROM CARMICHAEL: Michael, I watched the State of the Union last night, and the first part of it was Biden saying nice things about Ukraine and how brave they were, but he didn’t offer a single thing in terms of actual help that would help them in their fight against the invaders. This morning we hear that China has offered to negotiate in between. And Biden may be just foolish enough to accept that because, let’s remember, his family has accepted money from China, Ukraine, and Russia. He will let the three thugs negotiate with each other. And the negotiation really isn’t between Russia and Ukraine. The negotiation is for Europe to turn back on the Russian economy and for the U.S. to capitulate and turn back on the Russian economy. And after Russia...

CROM CARMICHAEL: Michael, I have been watching all of the reporting since Putin has invaded Ukraine. Also the lead-up to it. And let me tell you what my conclusion is. And this is just based on a whole bunch of observations. Nobody has told me that this is accurate. But when I look at everything and put it together and I look at, also, kind of history, here’s kind of what my conclusions are. One is I think that Putin gave Biden a heads-up and told him that he was going to invade Ukraine and go take Ukraine, and told him when he was going to do it. And I base that on the fact that Biden, about a month ago, started telling Americans to get out of Ukraine, get out of...

CROM CARMICHAEL: I have been watching the goings-on in Ukraine. I’ve been thinking about what the goings-on in Ukraine have been for the last couple of months based on the facts that I know about. I want to give you what my conclusions are. These conclusions are not airtight, but they’re based on the facts as we know them. So let’s consider what the facts are. We know for a fact that Putin has been saying for quite some time that Ukraine is part of Russia. We know that for a fact. We know that Biden, for approximately the last month, has been telling Americans to get out of Ukraine. And he’s been moving the American staff in Kiev out of Ukraine. So that tells me that Putin gave him a heads-up and...

CROM CARMICHAEL: Michael, there was an interesting article in The Wall Street Journal about Joe Manchin and about Biden’s attempt to get the Build Back Better energy part, his Green New Deal part through the Senate and through the House, which gives enormous subsidies, enormous subsidies to renewable energy. Now here’s what happens – if you give enormous subsidies to renewable energies, what does it do to the affordability of fossil fuels? It makes them unaffordable. By comparison, it will make it unaffordable. And so the taxpayers will be driving up energy costs by being forced to subsidize green energy. Let me just tell you what’s happening in Germany. Statistics on radio sometimes don’t work. But Germany, now, of all of its energy, it is 30 percent renewable. It is 30 percent green,...

CARMICHAEL SAID: Here’s an interesting headline from The Wall Street Journal. This is dated February 14, 2022. The headline is: Trump Really Was Spied On. Now, up until yesterday or the day before, up until then, The Wall Street Journal would not report that Trump was spied on – just like The Wall Street Journal continues to say there was no election fraud. I don’t know how many years it will be before you’ll see a headline that says, oh, gosh, there really was election fraud. And your organization is reporting on this in Georgia. And now there are actually investigations about the 300,000 ballots-plus in Georgia that had no chain of custody. Now what that means, Michael, is that doesn’t even mean it has to be ballot harvesting. That means that you...

CARMICHAEL SAID: You know, Michael, as I was driving in, you had Moms for Liberty on the radio program, and she pointed out some very interesting things, and that it’s very difficult to get people, typical people, to get active in politics, especially at the school board level, because it takes a tremendous amount of time. And these people are busy with their own lives, earning a living and taking care of their own families. So you have to ask the question, who are the people who run for school boards? And most of them are funded by the teachers’ unions, and certainly, the ones who win are funded by the teachers’ union. And so she asked the question. She said she’s very obviously very frustrated that the school board will pay...

CARMICHAEL SAID: Michael, we’ve talked a lot about the institution of equality under the law as being the bedrock of a civil society and a free society. And we’ve also so talked about how Joe Biden has always been, in his adult life, a grifter. And I’m defining a grifter here, for those who haven’t heard it, as somebody whose every single decision that they make from a policy standpoint has a strong element of selfishness in it. Now, it might be selfish for himself, it might be selfish for his family, or it might be selfish for the Democrat Party. But if it doesn’t benefit to the exclusion of all else, one of those three, then he is not for the policy. And by the way, that extends to his foreign...

CARMICHAEL SAID: Michael, there are two issues. And I’m going to kind of tie them together, because if you look at what’s going on with the Canadian truckers, what you see is the establishment of the Republican Party. And I’m not talking about the Bill Kristols that are the never-Trumper wing of the Republican Party, and you could fit all their members into a phone booth along with a bunch of pedophiles from the Lincoln Project. But in regards to the Canadian trucker situation, The Wall Street Journal has come out in their editorial page against the Canadian truckers. And they say that they are breaking the law. Here’s what they say: “The truckers should be prosecuted if they break the law, as we argued for Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives...

CARMICHAEL SAID: Michael, the difficulty in the Crommentary today is there are so many topics from which to choose. But the one I’ve settled on is all this kerfuffle going on in the media. And that includes Whoopi Goldberg, it includes Rogan, and it includes CNN. The contradictions between Whoopi Goldberg and Joe Rogan are completely obvious. But what’s fascinating about the CNN story is, we now know that Jeff Zucker has had a multi-year relationship with a woman who reported directly to him. And nobody has ever said whether or not she does a good job, but she was very well paid. So what do you call somebody when you’re both married and you’re having a relationship and the man is making sure that the female is paid a lot of...

CROM CARMICHAEL:  Michael, I’m going to tie three completely disparate issues together under the category of grifting. And that’s what I’ve said. The essence of the entire Biden administration is that. We know that Biden took out a terrorist in Syria, and that’s a good thing. But the bad thing about that is that Biden is still just determined to strike, to redo the nuclear deal with Iran and give Iran billions and billions of dollars. And it is Iran that is the chief sponsor of terrorism in the Middle East and, in fact, around the world. To take out one terrorist and then give money to a government that funds terrorists makes no sense. The other little footnote on that is that when Trump took out Soleimani, who is equally a...

CROM CARMICHAEL:  Michael, I don’t know if you saw the clip of Jen Psaki essentially doing, I guess, TikTok or something. She goes through all of the networks and she says here’s what all the networks are talking about, and she goes through CNN and MSNBC and all these different networks. And then she says on Fox, Fox is the only one talking about an issue that doesn’t exist, crime. It’s the only one. And I saw that and I said, you know, that encapsulates the entire Biden administration and the left today. Is there a border problem? According to them, no. Is there an inflation problem? I actually heard somebody on one of the major networks’ morning programs essentially say that empty shelves is a good thing because think of all the...
