Interview Brad Johnson on Iowa Caucus and Democratic party 8 months ago Brad Johnson this February 4th 2020 with Brad Johnson 00:04 about the peculiar events at the Iowa 00:07 caucus I’m gonna tell you I don’t know 00:09 anything about this procedure rather 00:11 than in every election it seems that 00:13 Iowa’s somehow unusually important I 00:16 don’t know why I also know that what 00:19 happens and I was indicative of things 00:21 to come I don’t understand why this is I 00:25 guess is it just a one party thing or I 00:27 guess it’s just decided that the 00:29 Republican side is filled by Trump 00:30 already but I don’t know what’s going on 00:32 but I definitely know that we were all 00:34 expecting the Democrats to pick somebody 00:37 that was a viable frontrunner for their 00:40 party yesterday and that didn’t happen 00:42 can you explain it especially to us poor 00:45 Canucks that just don’t get it 00:47 sure for my kynect friends from the 00:51 Yankee perspective here basically yes 00:55 the reason I was important is because 00:58 it’s first and that’s that’s really the 01:00 main thing and so it’s the it’s the 01:02 first primary and then we have three 01:05 more of this throughout this this month 01:08 and early next it’s such next it’s New 01:11 Hampshire then Arizona than South 01:13 Carolina and then it’s Super Tuesday 01:15 which is a whole bunch of states have 01:18 their primary on that day so the way 01:20 that it works in Iowa is that it’s a 01:21 caucus state which is odd you don’t 01:23 actually vote so it’s by party so the 01:26 Democrats had a democratic caucus and 01:29 what happens is you all show up at a 01:31 location physically whoever goes to 01:33 these shows up and the caucus word 01:37 refers to them grouping by candidate so 01:40 all those that support Bernie Sanders go 01:42 to one corner of the room and all of 01:44 those that support Pete buta Gedge or 01:48 Biden or whoever they go to that corner 01:51 air section of the room and then they 01:53 listen to what’s going on and make their 01:56 final decision and then they vote by 01:58 being in that group so that was done all 02:01 over the state and the different 02:03 counties which there I believe there are 02:05 99 counties in that state and so it’s 02:08 done on those they total all of the 02:10 votes based on what group you ended up 02:11 with 02:12 to be viable and have your votes counted 02:14 that has to represent at least 15% if 02:17 it’s less than 15% if your group is too 02:20 small like Elizabeth Warren has reported 02:24 now we don’t have the results even yet 02:25 and it’s been almost a you know it’s 02:27 been a back pulling clothes last night 02:29 at 8 o’clock and it’s midday here as we 02:32 do this interview so it’s it’s been 02:34 quite a little while and they still 02:36 don’t have the results but Elizabeth 02:37 Warren is reportedly to have done very 02:39 poorly so some of these places for 02:41 example if you can only put together 02:42 what represents people that would 02:44 represents 10 percent of the vote those 02:46 people had to leave and go someplace 02:47 else 02:47 so there was a lot of shifting around 02:49 and that’s one of the quirks of this of 02:52 this type of system that’s the caucus 02:54 system that’s used in Iowa very very 02:56 sort of odd old-fashioned yet sort of a 03:00 neighborly thing to do to go around and 03:01 get into these discussions and decide 03:03 where your vote goes now so that’s only 03:05 for the Democrats parallel to that the 03:07 Republicans also did one there’s only 03:09 one candidate present Trump but he 03:11 filled the house and that’s not being 03:12 reported in the press very much and 03:14 there were a lot of caucus goers that 03:17 came out to support Trump and there was 03:19 no corner to go to for represent a 03:21 different candidate you just were there 03:23 and by being there represented Trump so 03:26 he won Iowa in the last election and it 03:29 looks like he’s showing a strong 03:31 presence there now and is fairly well 03:33 organized and and had a good showing so 03:36 now out of this Iowa caucus that hasn’t 03:39 come out now everybody said the the 03:42 Democratic the head of the Democratic 03:45 Party for the state of Iowa was out in 03:48 interviews the National Committee for 03:50 the Democrats was out yesterday in 03:52 interviews and they were all saying oh 03:53 now 03:53 yeah we’re completely ready this is 03:55 going to go smooth as silk it’s it’s 03:57 everything is prepared now it has not 03:59 it’s been a complete meltdown they 04:01 haven’t come out with the results yet so 04:03 something is clearly wrong they have 04:06 said they were well-prepared technically 04:07 to handle this so something has gone 04:11 wrong now the Sanders people Bernie 04:13 Sanders is we know last time running 04:15 against Hillary Clinton got screwed and 04:19 a lot of information came out about this 04:21 and Hillary Clinton was getting 04:22 questions in advance of the debate 04:24 and they were moving things manipulating 04:26 things around the National Party 04:28 Democratic Party was manipulating the 04:30 situation to make sure that Bernie 04:32 Sanders did not get the nomination I 04:34 just want to jump in at this point and 04:35 say Bernie Sanders is a lot healthier 04:38 than many other people that have 04:40 interfered with Hillary Clinton’s 04:41 political ambitions yes he’s still still 04:44 kickin although he did have a stroke not 04:46 too long ago so the Sanders people have 04:52 already come out and said our internal 04:54 numbers show we did really well here 04:57 here and here and these are some of the 04:59 biggest districts biggest counties most 05:02 populated counties and so when if we’ve 05:04 done really well there you better not 05:06 come out and be saying you know we only 05:08 got two percent of the voter or 05:10 something like that because we know from 05:12 our own numbers we did well here so we 05:14 better see some accurate figures come 05:16 out and we better get them soon and 05:18 nobody’s seen them yet but we’re 05:20 thinking you know we expect to have won 05:22 this so it’s a it’s an interesting thing 05:25 now doesn’t necessarily mean that this 05:27 was shut down by the Democrats in order 05:29 to manipulate the numbers but it doesn’t 05:31 mean it wasn’t either and certainly 05:33 we’ve seen the Democrats just be nothing 05:35 but corrupt I mean everything that 05:37 they’ve done involved in the impeachment 05:39 and all of these things just corrupt 05:41 aspect after corrupt aspect after 05:43 corrupt aspect so again I’m very 05:45 suspicious of why all this is going on 05:47 but the Bernie Sanders people have 05:49 already drawn the line in the sand and 05:51 interestingly enough this would be one 05:53 of those things where the right and left 05:55 would probably agree that you know you 05:57 can’t allow this type of corruption to 05:58 go on and if it doesn’t come out as a 06:00 pretty good showing for Bernie Sanders I 06:02 think you’re gonna I think you’ll have 06:04 meltdown within the Democratic Party big 06:07 loser looks like probably so far Biden 06:11 and you know just hasn’t didn’t do well 06:16 looks like he’s because he’s been kind 06:17 of quiet so it looks like his internal 06:19 numbers show him getting like third 06:21 place or something like that Elizabeth 06:23 Warren doing poorly booting edge thinks 06:25 he’s done well he claimed a victory 06:27 that’s that’s kind of heard of its it’s 06:29 got a little bit viral on the internet 06:31 and people are saying you know what a 06:33 goofball because he claimed oh what a 06:34 fabulous victory for us we want ya now 06:36 one in New Hampshire he had a victory 06:39 speech and the results are still not out 06:41 and he had that speech last night so you 06:44 know that was kind of a silliness thing 06:47 that he did I think it’s part of the 06:48 youth of that particular guy that he 06:50 didn’t have the maturity to play that a 06:52 little bit smarter but you know we’ll 06:54 see as these things go forward the other 06:56 aspect of this and I would link it 06:57 slightly to the impeachment because 07:00 Democrats are faced with problems and 07:02 they need to make something out of all 07:04 of this now impeachment is going to be 07:07 voted on today and it looks pretty 07:09 clearly like he’s going to be fairly 07:11 easily acquitted it looks like the 07:13 Republicans are holding firm and will 07:15 vote in mass two four for acquittal of 07:19 the impeachment and it looks like 07:21 there’s going to be three or so senators 07:23 on the Democrat side that are going to 07:25 go over so it’s going to be a bipartisan 07:27 acquittal that is just really bad news 07:30 for those guys now not the first time 07:33 that anyone has suggested this but 07:35 they’re going to have to find a 07:37 scapegoat somebody’s going to get in 07:39 trouble over this and you know who oh 07:41 who could it be so I think the obvious 07:43 targets you’re going to see the 07:45 mainstream media the liberal mainstream 07:47 media immediately you know want to 07:49 attack someone for it so first on the 07:52 menu I think is probably Adam Schiff and 07:54 he has come out in a speech day before 07:58 yesterday saying well you know we did 08:00 everything that can be done everything 08:02 that was humanly possible and this is 08:03 you know Republicans they’re evil nasty 08:05 people who just aren’t aren’t aren’t 08:07 impeaching the president when we say we 08:09 want to so he’s now already started to 08:12 put out his defense publicly so I think 08:14 he’s going to be the top target Jerry 08:17 Nadler will also probably be targeted 08:20 Jerry Nadler is just such a hapless 08:22 individual not very bright 08:24 just not very professional and just sort 08:26 of a goofball guy that ended up there by 08:28 accident we talked previously about his 08:30 history but he was a guy that had run 08:32 for that seat 08:33 I know multiple times like three times 08:36 at least and had always failed and then 08:38 the guy that was going to go in and win 08:40 the seat died of a heart attack and he 08:42 was the only one left around so that 08:43 that’s that’s how he got pumped into 08:45 that seat and won the position 08:47 has been in Congress ever since so he 08:50 just a hapless individual and I think 08:52 he’s going to be so easy to throw out of 08:56 the boss that that you know he’s going 08:58 to be destroyed 08:59 politically fairly quickly out of this 09:01 mess now I may be wrong on that but they 09:03 may look at it and say well it’s too 09:04 easy to blame him 09:05 because he’s such a schmuck but I think 09:08 Adam Schiff is the guy that’s that’s the 09:10 the bigger target and probably the one 09:12 that they’re gonna try to assign the 09:13 blame to so that this let me just say 09:16 this means nothing in the long run just 09:20 we all knew that this was happening and 09:22 that he was going to eventually be 09:23 acquitted or most people believed it the 09:25 smart money was on acquittal but it’s 09:27 just going to be another thing there’s 09:28 going to be another whistleblower or 09:30 another something else come out right 09:31 after this 09:32 this is what we’re faced with for the 09:34 next five years and it’s never gonna 09:36 stop and even ten years after they’re 09:40 the Democrats are still gonna be 09:41 bad-mouthing Trump we to this day years 09:45 after President Reagan laughed and has 09:48 passed away they’re still out there 09:50 trying to rewrite history and badmouth 09:51 Reagan and say what an evil guy he was a 09:54 terrible president and unfortunately 09:56 this never trump or faction of the 09:58 Republican Party is also on board with 10:00 that and they do the same thing they’re 10:01 bad bad-mouthing Reagan and they’re 10:04 bad-mouthing Trump and they’re gonna be 10:05 doing it out there ten years from now 10:07 along with the Democrats well I just be 10:11 nice I think if Schiff got thrown under 10:13 the bus it would still be easier on him 10:16 than being on the bus at least the ones 10:18 marked road workers go this way so thank 10:22 you very much for that I guess that’s an 10:24 explanation a few days before this event 10:28 there were rumors that Hillary Clinton 10:30 had been maneuvering behind the scenes 10:33 to disenfranchise Bernie Sanders again 10:35 and yes you know I as you said something 10:40 that both conservatives and whatever the 10:43 Democrat Party is now should agree on is 10:45 that that is an unacceptable way to run 10:48 things I I I think Bernie Sanders is a 10:50 dangerous communist but I still think 10:53 that if you if you destroy the 10:55 democratic process to circumnavigate 10:57 them then how are you any better than 11:00 he planned to do so exactly right and I 11:04 say I mean the Democratic Party is never 11:06 gonna allow Bernie Sanders to be the 11:07 candidate and it looks like Bernie 11:08 Sanders has won Iowa he’s gonna do very 11:11 well in New Hampshire he’s going to do I 11:14 don’t know Arizona probably not so well 11:16 but certainly in South Carolina he’s got 11:19 a shot to come back there so if going 11:21 into Super Tuesday he’s won three out of 11:24 four you know he’s starting he’s a he’s 11:29 become a force then to deal with at that 11:31 point so I think I mean I’m suspicious 11:34 of what’s going on now if they’re 11:36 looking at if the Democratic National 11:38 Committee is looking at this gone you 11:40 know oMG whatever what are we gonna do 11:42 here I mean he’s he’s gonna win New 11:44 Hampshire do well in South Carolina 11:46 maybe okay and Arizona he’s it looks 11:48 like he’s won Iowa you know maybe we 11:50 should stop him now uh I don’t know 11:52 we’ll see I mean a lot of people out 11:54 there saying 100 suspicious about this 11:57 it’s just a quirk and they goofed up and 12:01 they weren’t ready and all of this and 12:02 so that’s why we haven’t got the results 12:04 but it would also take the wind out of 12:07 the sails for Bernie if they stall so 12:10 long that he can’t Trump at his victory 12:12 and that happened in fact last time 12:15 if everyone were calls to on the 12:18 Republican side to Ted Cruz and there 12:23 was a number of days after he’d won were 12:26 where they was declared that he won the 12:28 hawk the Iowa primary and and they 12:31 didn’t declare it right away and they 12:33 made some mistakes on the figures and 12:34 three days later or something like that 12:36 that went oops was actually Ted Cruz at 12:38 one that took some wind out of his sails 12:39 it did not help him at all so I mean 12:42 that could be essentially what’s going 12:43 on they’ll they’ll just look back at all 12:45 this and say oh well there was this 12:46 technical glitch that technical glitch 12:48 and Bernie won you know three days late 12:50 but you know he won so okay that that 12:53 may be part of it too whether if that 12:54 happens which would be my personal 12:56 prediction if that happens I would be 12:58 extraordinarily suspicious I would say 13:01 that they’re screwing with Bernie if 13:03 that’s the result but we’ll see and 13:05 certainly we should know I would 24 to 13:08 48 hours well we I can’t imagine them 13:10 installing much past that it’s already 13:12 been a day well if you lecture 13:14 comes down to between president Trump 13:15 and Bernie Sanders you’re gonna see the 13:17 greatest age divide in US history that’s 13:21 everybody under 30 versus everybody over 13:24 thank you go ahead I’ll add one more 13:27 thing I’m sorry there is precedent for 13:30 that when President Reagan ran for his 13:33 reelection and won by 48 or 49 states it 13:38 was also a candidate that had had taken 13:41 the nomination McGovern who was very 13:44 leftist for the time and sort of the 13:47 party said okay fine let’s just give 13:49 this guy his chance but he was very 13:50 left-wing at that time not as far 13:53 left-wing as Bernie Sanders is today but 13:55 very left-wing for his time and they let 13:58 it go forward and so the Democrats have 14:02 not forgotten that and they know they 14:04 got creamed I mean that’s I don’t I 14:07 don’t know how far you’d have to go back 14:09 in history or if ever there’s been a 14:11 time we’re in a real action of president 14:13 1 48 or 49 states but they don’t want 14:16 that humiliation again and if there’s a 14:18 situation of that nature they know that 14:20 they’re gonna lose a lot of House seats 14:22 and and more Senate seats so they cannot 14:25 allow Bernie Sanders to be the nominee 14:28 because they know he will just get a 14:30 shellacking and that just costs them too 14:32 much party wide so it they’ve gotten 14:35 real problem on their hands there’s just 14:36 a real problem that’s I think meltdown 14:39 is in the future I wouldn’t be even 14:41 surprised if this if Bernie continues to 14:43 do well they’re gonna have to try and 14:44 force this into a contested nomination 14:47 process that they’re gonna take care of 14:49 at the convention and try to say it’s 14:51 you know they’re at loggerheads so we 14:53 have to bring in somebody else or 14:54 whoever that will provide some 14:56 opportunities for who knows Bloomberg 14:58 maybe I doubt Hillary but you never know 15:01 I’m sure she dreams of such things but I 15:04 just don’t know definitely they’re 15:06 saying that Michelle Obama is not 15:10 interested in not doing and not going to 15:12 run but she was someone who’d been 15:13 speculated about maybe six eight months 15:15 ago so we’ll see it’s going to be very 15:18 interesting but I against I don’t see 15:20 how this is going to be anything other 15:21 than a bloodbath for the Democrats 15:23 fighting each other Click
