The Gateway Pundit correspondent Jordan Conradson spoke to Kash Patel, the former chief of staff to the Acting United States Secretary of Defense under President Donald Trump, earlier this week at the Save America Rally in Mesa, Arizona.
In this interview, Patel laid out the consequences of weak Joe Biden, who nobody respects, saying he is actually rooting for Biden on national security “because if he fails, we’re going to fail.”
Joe Biden is an utter failure on the southern border, and we now face another new threat of world war due to his incompetence.
On top of this, Biden also destroyed our economy and our energy independence.
America is now weaker than ever before, and Joe Biden continues pushing for a nuclear war with his ridiculous gaffes and dementia-fueled outbursts.
As The Gateway Pundit reported, Biden warned that we are on the brink of a nuclear armageddon with Russia over Ukraine.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said last month he would defend Russian territory “with all the means at our disposal,” raising concerns that he meant nuclear weapons.
“President Trump didn’t ever have to deal with that because they would never do that to him,” said Kash Patel in the interview.
Patel also spoke about the importance of electing America First candidates to every seat in Arizona to protect the border and Arizona’s elections moving forward.
Arizona will not secure its elections or the southern border without Kari Lake, Abe Hamadeh, and Mark Finchem in office.
The Arizona establishment is already doing everything possible to change the rules, rig, and steal another election in Arizona, and Arizonans must outnumber the expected voter fraud.
Conradson: So, what’s going on in Russia? I know President Trump had it under control, but what’s going on now?
Patel: What’s happening is we’re seeing what happens when you have a weak Commander in Chief. The global leadership doesn’t respect Joe Biden. And I’ll be the first one to say it: I’m cheering for Joe Biden in national security because if he fails, we’re going to fail. He failed at the border, and you see, now we’re on the brink of a possible world war. Let alone the threat of nuclear arsenal attacks from Russia, which has the largest warhead compilation on planet Earth. Those are actual threats and instead of us not dealing with those, President Trump didn’t ever have to deal with that because they would never do that to him. We have to deal with that, plus a failing border, plus a failing economy, plus failing gas prices. And this is why you see all these people out here in Arizona, and yesterday, we were in Nevada to elect America First candidates because they see these decisions impact their everyday lives.
Conradson: Another issue we have out here in Arizona is the wide-open southern border. You know fentanyl is pouring in at a historic rate. Just recently, 1 million pills were found in a single home out here in Arizona. What do you expect from Kari Lake when it comes to the border?
Patel: I think she’s got a great combo. Kari is a dear friend, and Abe Hamadeh is going to be the number one law enforcement officer. Those two know how to put Arizona and border security first. I know we’re in the 21st century, and every state is a border state. But in reality, it’s Arizona and my home state of Nevada where we see it immediately upfront and the hardest, and they’ve championed it. They’ve said Donald Trump’s policies of securing our border and putting drug dealers in prison. With Donald Trump’s policy, he’s putting forward enacting the death penalty for narco-trafficking. I believe Abe and Kari will get together and combat these criminals and not let them out on the streets. I think they have a big plan for the border security operation where Joe Biden’s administration continues to fail. They know that they, as a state, as state officers, and the state chief officer have to take charge of Arizona’s security, and they’re going to do it.
Conradson: As you said, you know every state is a border state. There are chain reactions, it starts here in Arizona, and we’re are the pipeline for fentanyl. What do people, when you talk to them around the country, want to see from elected officials like Kari Lake, Like Abe Hamadeh here in Arizona, and Blake Masters in the US Senate?
Patel: Blake’s a great candidate for US Senate. I think they want two things: accountability and transparency. That’s literally it. They want our government to not be corrupt. They want our kids to have an education system, that’s not corrupted by the media and things such as gender dynamics, and CRT. They want to be able to teach them about truth, values, mission, and service. There’s nothing wrong with that. That’s the way America was built. And I think they’re starting to see that community engagement matters more than that national engagement. State-level elections are more important than anybody you can send to Washington. I know some people don’t agree with me on some of that, but that’s what impacts your life in Arizona. Who’s your Governor, your State Attorney General, your State Senators, your Secretary of State? Your local city council or education board member. Those are the races that you need to be paying attention to more because they see it every day.
Conradson: Another big national security issue out here in Arizona is election integrity. What do you expect to see from Mark Finchem as Secretary of State? And can you speak to the importance of election integrity and securing our elections?
Patel: If you want 20 minutes of election integrity, go see my new book, “The Plot Against The King 2000 Mules” at plotaagainsttheking.com. President Trump launched it, and the left when nuts because we talk about election integrity. What’s wrong with that? We live in a Constitutional Republic, and I think Mark Finchem is going to follow that ethos and say the state governs federal elections, and the state governs local elections. They decide, are we going to go to paper ballots, are we going to go a month early, are we going to require photo ID, are we going to let illegals vote and get IDs? I think Mark Finchem’s going to stop that, and then we’re going to see our elections return to normalcy. And here’s the thing, I remind people, every European country has a voter ID law. You know, they’re always yelling at us, “why can’t we be more like Europe?” Okay, well, why don’t we just copy their voter ID law? They don’t allow you to vote unless you show a photograph. It’s the same thing in most of the countries in Africa. Most places require you to prove your identity before you vote; your identity, your citizenship, and your residency. Basically, so you don’t have a rigged election like we had. I think Mark Finchem gets that, I think Abe gets that, I think Kari Lake gets that, and Blake Masters does as well.
