"Sera time It also may be breakfast time for yoga time but definitely listening time Welcome back to the Jim bohannon show at one 8 6 6 5 O Jimbo one 8 6 6 5 O 5 four 6 two 6 Jack Lombardi a tech entrepreneur running for Congress says we're not doing enough to stop Russian disinformation and we have a call from Mike in Denver Hello Mike Thank you so much for taking my call and mister Lombardi Thank you so much for your insight in your forward thinking approach It means a lot So I just had a quick comment and question on this tonight So Jack Russia as we know recently passed these new fake news laws that threaten prison time for anyone publishing what Russian authorities consider to be false information about the country's invasion of Ukraine Now TikTok which is an app that allows users to make short videos about things It's essentially like YouTube just the videos are shorter They on Sunday suspended most of their services in Russia and suspended users from being able to post new content New videos which I don't think this comes as any coincidence My question would be do you think TikTok is spending people from being able to do new posts not to censor people but to protect the average Russian citizens from being improperly in prison for posting information the Russian government bills is misinformation While I would say that would be a way to look at it that's for sure I mean that's a good way to look at it However none of us will know I mean we are just speculating at this point on what the true real intent is because I mean we are talking about Russia Yes It's a good point That we can't be sure trying to crawl inside that mind is like a trip through the looking glass for Alice in Wonderland But the good point Mike and certainly food for thought one 8 6 6 5 O Jimbo and we go to a Danny in Helen Georgia hello Danny Hello Yes you're on the radio Danny What's on your mind Thank you thank you I'll tell you what I really am sorry As far as falling victim to it myself I think the Internet is really challenging everybody down to a certain point of who they can buy what they should buy what they should say what they should read and what have you There's horrible sales tactics going on these days And I still fall victim to some of the little rides but I hate it It's horrible It's headed in a wrong direction and I don't know how we're going to fix it Jim All right well thoughts on that certainly that they are trying to make us buy stuff I can honestly say that I thought about this as the show was progressing And I really believe never in my life has something that's been foisted on me by the Internet caused me to buy it I mean wow isn't that special I just first of all I'm not much of an impulse buyer In fact I don't consume all that much at all I need this I need that I'm not the kind of person you turn loose in a supermarket And I'm going in there for a sack of flour and I walk out with the two carts full of stuff That ain't me So it isn't affecting me that much but for those who feel Danny's predicament you know I mean if somebody is trying to get me to buy something I'll look at it but I'm not gonna worry about it It's not like insidious forces are crawling in between my ears to force me zombie like to the checkout line Your thoughts My thoughts on that is you know we all have to be responsible for our own spending habits Yes it is they're called programmatic ads is what you're speaking about right They're very very very slick It's the best way I can describe it I work with them And I do believe there's been some points where they've been a little intrusive A little more and they should be and I believe that we're some regulation on there But going back to the original topic advertising is what is your control of your own decisions and accountable for your own decisions But taking that technology and using it for let's say then less than good or at least decent means is what I'm most fearful of with the Internet because of what happens This does happen That technology does happen Years ago I built an app one of my apps one of my first one and I was exposed to you have to sign an affidavit with the federal government that you will allow them in your server If they need to go in there please reasons or whatever right So that's a legitimate argument we can all understand But where's the line drawn there Who else gets in there I mean when you sign it off you could be disguised Your intent to go into a server of a product or an app can be disguised as let's say for police reasons or whatever investigation reasons But it could be completely something different And we've seen that the manipulation of law in order to use these apps to get into the back doors to them And there's been some spying that's been done I believe president Trump was not a fan of TikTok Because of its origin and nor am I I told my son many years ago I have an 18 year old son I said hey listen buddy There's things you could do on that phone I can't get you out of So you have to be very very careful Be careful what you search and what whatever you view or whatnot I had that conversation with them and I had explained to them any pictures that are taken You know incent back and forth whatever they are I'm not saying they're bad I'm just you can use your imagination On somebody's server That is on somebody else's server and there are other people that will have access to it Now can you imagine the power of AI.

"Back to the Jim bohannon show at one 8 6 6 5 O Jimbo one 8 6 6 5 O 5 four 6 two 6 and we're talking with congressional candidate Jack Lombardi he's also a techie and we had a call from rob and Richmond California regarding the tendency of some search engines to skew shall we say hyper to the left and Jack was explaining when the clock intervened That was not the big tech people No just our clock And his explanation got into the fact that apparently on average 86% of people who searched or go past the first thing on the search engine So please continue Jack Yeah and just to ramp up that thought I do agree with the caller we did find that it's in subtlety to the naked eye but if you were to look at the percentages of each spot the ten spots that are on the first page of an organic search result you would see that just that movement of where they put those articles though those articles are contextually better and better towards the search result You would see that there is some games being played there and that's for sure for certain that there's no question about that 26 one 8 6 6 5 O Jimbo one 8 6 6 5 O 5 four 6 two 6 as we talked with Jack Lombardi high-tech entrepreneur and also candidate for the United States Congress Now in particular as regards what you think we should be doing regarding Russian disinformation should we have someone in government or should it be a private sector enterprise which simply goes out and finds every bit of disinformation and makes a point of refuting it I'm sure that would be a pretty labor intensive task but you tell me what would be the best approach here The best approach is actually to address the search social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook to start Because many of it finds its way through there and they are going to play favorites for what they're going to allow through because these companies do business all around the world I've grown to distrust them even more because they do other countries are a little more strict that they're allowing some things pass I mean they were just brought before I believe the Senate and I don't know court where they admitted that fact checking was mere opinion Well I mean you could steer society like that They're so powerful So with Russian disinformation playing in there it's how much of it are they letting through how much are they controlling because we used to have stops in here that we control what kind of information got to the mainland America And after the Smith and Mont modernization act of 2012 it seems like a lot of that had changed So at this point you don't know who the trust So my guess or my professional guess I would say is we should start with Facebook and Twitter and move on to Google and see what interest they have in foreign countries and have played sides with any sort of foreign entity When you say interests are we talking financial interests here I must confess I'm not really aware who controls most of these big entities although I gather most are publicly held and publicly traded companies whose mega billionaire owners hone a disproportionate share of that stock but I'm not I've really looked into it So what kind of interests are we talking about besides financial Well you know service What kind of ability what kind of deals do they make with other countries to be able to service those countries and are there backdoor data mining projects happening there that may not be in the best interest of the United States of America I mean because we all know your data is getting mined right It's definitely been intrusive at this point So what kind of data U.S. data is being bought and sold in other countries Because there's an interest to skew content at that point Well now I understand when people are mining my data to try and sell me laundry detergent Okay I'm not always thrilled with it And by virtue of the fact that I do a feature every day and sometimes I go after some pretty weird websites and so it's a pretty strange things are sent my way in terms of advertising as seen on the Internet Now look at something I think where did that come from Oh that was a feature I did last Tuesday So I understand that concept What else are we are we talking about here in terms of the mining of data for example are we mining data that could either determine our political views or even shape our political views Bingo yet the nail on the head That's right where I was going to go It's all mined with AI So the AI is artificial intelligence for those who don't know the term but that is to say computers very good computers go ahead Yes very good computers that are about as big as warehouses for sure So taking the information just remember how many articles have you read and how often has it come out in the news where our phones were listening to us our devices that we have in our home are listening to us our TVs are listening to us They hear every word they analyze that They know what our emotions are They know what we're thinking or what they only guess in our emotions I mean really That's pretty sophisticated Seriously Yeah I think Elon Musk just said a few days ago that the AI developers have seriously underestimated the ability of Tesla I would agree with that And then there is other AI much more sophisticated Now remember here's this is an important part of what we're talking about That AI information now is being used in warfare because China started doing it And we have other countries but I mean I'll say China being one of the leaders there what information is being sold I mean let's look at China for instance China is dangerous Let's take a quick break and we'll come back and we'll look at China because China had to come up at some point when it comes to the kind of things we're talking about here Not only the intent but the.

"Jimbo had a show as we speak with our guests to Jack Lombardi tech entrepreneur candidate for Congress in the 14th congressional district of Illinois calls at one 8 6 6 5 O Jimbo one 8 6 6 5 O 5 four 6 two 6 but first a follow-up to what we had said up to this point And that would be this Let's say that somebody out there with a hundred followers on Twitter says something outrageous and somebody with a 100,000 followers refutes that Okay well maybe the person refuting that is in fact correct But that person is also amplified by a thousand times the coverage of the charge So in a way by refuting that if you are a huge Twitter presence are you not in fact propagating the very thing you refuting Yeah That's an interesting concept I would agree section two 30 You remember president Trump had always said oh we got to get rid of it Well for those of you who don't know that section two 30 of the communications decency act of 1996 and I suspect most of the audience knows we've had several shows on that but basically it allows the big tech people to say hey we didn't say that somebody else said that We just pass it along Go ahead Yes exactly Exactly So president Trump said oh we got to get rid of it Well that's just president Trump being president Trump And the type of negotiator he is He knows as well as anybody else's You can never get rid of that because if somebody goes on your website and they say something then your website you the owner would be held liable And you can't let that happen because you can't control others And that would essentially crush the Internet However what Facebook and Twitter has done specifically to like president Trump or conservatives or a different opinion even Just if you differ in thought by the censorship at that point are you a publisher or you're an editor and that needs to be revisited specifically if you're going to change with somebody has posed by either taking it off the Internet or whatever the fact that you're trying to hide behind your terms and services At that point they're kind of it's murky waters on that one And I do believe that those definitions need to be revisited So we don't need to repeal section two 30 We need to rewrite it I would say so I think that the Internet is let's be honest it's been around for a while but still fairly new It's been the wild wild west That's how we refer to it even in Internet marketing community because there's always something new that comes up And no one could have had the foresight to understand how it would have been used years back Now that we've seen the use of almost weaponizing well actually weaponizing of the Internet and social media platforms we could go back and revisit those definitions so that things like what happened with president Trump That was absolutely absurd And if people really understood the nuts and bolts of how the Internet behaves and how propagandists will manipulate their way it's called working working the media chain right They'll have lower level websites they'll put content on there and it makes its way up to bigger ones Perhaps a Reddit And then all of a sudden someone calls up a reporter says why aren't you covering this The reporter wants to be first which is often happens I guess it's maybe a casualty of the industry They want to be first And then what happens it turns into news It blows up It goes viral and the whole thing was never true And rob and Richmond California would like to speak to our guests good evening rob Hi mister liberty It's my experience that the search engines themselves and maybe you've just referred to this Our skewed against a more conservative point of view I mean I voted twice for Obama and twice for Trump and but when I put in a search I use Google as safari And when I put in well let's say even though I believe in vaccines adverse effects for the vaccine there are some really incredible reports of serious reports about adverse effects I can't find it And then just punched in proving the exception of the rule I punched in just before I talked to you the top climate scientist skeptics and the Business Insider came up and it was the top ten great scientists who are skeptical about okay well anyway we get the idea and I think that we have referred to the basic premise that rob was bringing up that is a skew away from conservative viewpoints whatever they may be Would you concur with that Jack Yes sir Great point to bring up because we actually tested that Me and a handful of my peers and Internet marketing community had actually tested against DuckDuckGo That exact that exact niche that what the search rankings would look like And here's what's interesting The top organic search result will typically not always but typically will receive 86% of the first page traffic meaning other people won't go to the other listings organically on that page And there's a joke in the Internet marketing community is if you want to bury a dead body just put it on page two because no one's going to go there and look right So the positioning of each organic listing on first page Google result or being typically Google it keeps the Google We're coming up on a break that doesn't move So before the computer cuts us off we'll return to that particular train of thought in just a moment Drivers who switch and save with progressive save over $700 on average and those savings add up imagine what you could buy in the future future The graphics are so real on this video game console I bought with the savings from switching to progressive ten.

"Who had left Congress he resigned and went to aid president Trump with true socials So who was this That's representative news I'm sorry I'm sorry representative who Noons Okay I guess Yeah exactly from California who left to head up Trump's signature provider of Internet services I guess for one of a better term yes Okay go ahead yes Yep That platform is called So who do we have left here in the Republican Party I mean there's a couple of people I know that a handful of congressmen like congressman Biggs and Congress are on the freedom from big tech caucus However when I listen to the questioning when they've brought in Mark Zuckerberg when they bring in all the heads of many of these big techs I get the impression they don't exactly know what questions to ask And I do it's very true that many of them don't have the faintest idea and ironically enough they don't seem to have had the common sense to ask their staff I mean some of these people are grant you may be octogenarian dinosaurs but they all have young staffers I mean you would think they would say you know tell me more about this We're really past the day I think when senator Strom Thurmond telling a witness to get closer to the microphone would say talk into the machine I think we've gone past that point haven't we Yeah one we're thinking yeah definitely I feel that the Republican Party and the representatives so many great people So many of them are just great in their own talent We have so many great veterans who are serving and God bless them and God bless their service to this country We have so many attorneys We have plenty of them I mean I was actually with a couple of congressmen at cpac We're kind of joking about that We have plenty of attorneys but the skill set that's missing is and this has been my bid to the 14th district And also to people throughout the country is you know when are we going to start to really ask the question of where the battle for the hearts and minds of this nation has taken place I mean it's been on the Internet and the Democrat party has done a very very good job of getting their hands wrapped around the Internet and controlling its growth and always positioning in themselves successfully And of course the younger demographic for so many years back was who was on the Internet But now you have people much like myself and their 40s where net transitional period of life before the Internet but we also adapted it We were coming up as the Internet was coming from its infancy We need to have more representation on the right with regards to the Internet and how the Internet works and we don't So that's been my bid to the 14 district to say hey we have all the talent in the world when it comes to legal issues We have all the talent in the world when it comes to military But we are just getting our rear end handed to us when it comes to Internet And they kicked the president of the United States of America off social media platform I mean I mean that right there really shows that the doors were open The terms of services we're not being looked at by both parties while mainly the Republican Party which allowed for something like that to happen And let's be honest I mean Facebook and Twitter are essentially at this point almost a utility That's something I wanted to bring up at this point In fact we'll pause and we'll come back and bring that point up but that is the whole notion of whether or not the behavior of the tech giants of today are not the behavior is not at least as egregious and maybe more so than the behavior of the trusts of a century and a quarter ago the steel trust the oil trust the sugar trust and all the rest of them that wound up leading to the creation of the antitrust laws so we'll ask you that of our guest Jack Lombardi a tech entrepreneur candidate for the Illinois 14th congressional district seat one 8.

"Fighting in Ukraine We'll be talking more about that particularly in our third hour tonight but tonight we're going to be talking about one particular aspect of this conflict with Jack Lombardi He is a tech entrepreneur and candidate for the Illinois 14th congressional district seat Jack thanks for joining us Thank you for having me sir And good evening to you and to your listeners Absolutely Now let's start here with the where is the 14th congressional district My guess would be that is somewhere in the Chicago suburbs Yes a little bit more west of the Chicago suburbs It's almost in the shape of like Texas I goes up to DeKalb sycamore area all the way down and it has all of Joliet area as far west as oglesby or LaSalle county as about 7 different counties Like you said it's just west of the Chicagoland area in the color counties Gotcha All right very good And now that tech entrepreneur if you could amplify on that particular title it's a talk show host shorthand though please tell us more Well I guess if we're going to sum it up I'm an expert in algorithms like search algorithm which would be like how Google works how the search results are found how being works how the search results are found or how Yahoo works and how the search results are found I'm also an algorithm expert with like Facebook or Twitter those kind of social media platforms and how they behave and why they do what they do and what research results They produce that's how I made my living is to work with their algorithms for clients of mine who are small to medium sized businesses And that's what I've been doing for like the last almost 15 years All right Now just as an aside the circle central reason Jack Lombardi is on tonight but just as an aside I think a lot of us have always wondered about that because he's not even thinking about it You search for something Or Google it is tend to do making that proprietary noun into a verb and probably ultimately stripping away the intellectual property rights from the people involved but anyway it is pretty amazing that they find so many things that are in fact what we were looking for every now and then you do get a clunker and you wonder how that got into the mix but then you start to think about it This is a device that is looking merely at letter symbols and going through the tidal wave of information on the Internet and finding stuff that is what you're looking for and doing so I would say 99% of the time with pretty good accuracy I've never understood quite how they do that Yeah you know it's a mystery to many and it's a very guarded secret that Google and other search engines even if their social media search engines will keep we always joke and say they're locked away probably somewhere in the Swiss Swiss mountains which actually there may be some truth to that to be honest But yeah there is an algorithm and how it works and it's not anything you could go to school for It took a lot of years of observation reverse engineering and essentially trying to break the search engines that brought my company and myself in the industry up to the status of where I'm at right now At least United States of America One 8 6 6 5 O Jimbo is our number one 8 6 6 5 O 5 four 6 two 6 and now with all of that background and before we're done we will talk about some of the general issues that Jack will be facing in his quest for the 14th congressional district seat in Illinois but to look at the particular subject it had to have given his technical expertise I gather you are of the opinion that we're not doing enough to stop Russian disinformation would that be correct Yeah I mean that in among other things But yeah if we're going to focus on Russian disinformation when it comes into the country here's a really interesting let's call homework assignment for your listeners It's called the smith and modernization act of 2012 If you're familiar with it then you'll understand that while president Obama was in office and by the aid of a Republican senator out of Texas they had modernized if you will this act which in 1948 I believe when it's originally passed in a law prohibited any anti American sentiment from being distributed domestically here in the United States and what happens is outside entities much like let's say Russia And they put out this information through social media through a network of what we'll call them propaganda network websites right It's a series of them And what they'll do is they'll use bots and they'll use actually live people to propagate propaganda and then it works its way into our media And what winds up happening is they're trying to control the narrative of whatever is happening to cause confusion and it's a propaganda war We all know the Russians have always engaged in this kind of behavior And it's very clear And as somebody that's in the Internet marketing community more times than not you'll see that some of the best hackers and some of the most savvy if you will propagandist networks will be built from Russia or they'll originate back to Russia whereas also in China as well You'll find that and oftentimes in Pakistan too So with Russia just keeping in context here is there is information that's coming out that's confusing people on the right There's information that's coming out that plane to people on the left like everyone's a Nazi I mean it's got the signature there of messaging that this is something that has been a popular talking point with the lap that everybody is somehow associated with being racist or a Nazi And this is the information that's coming in So Russia is trying to fight with Ukraine on the messaging of winning hearts right Who's the good guy and who's a bad guy And I've even heard some people on the right saying all men it's starting to look like Ukraine's the bad guy and Russia is a good guy and all I respond is is beware of propaganda because of propaganda is good So the technical terms of how it's done it's probably too much for this interview But what I would say is the signature is there and the only we only had somebody that I in my opinion I thought was pretty smart about the Internet and that.

"Of the newspapers I subscribed 2.5 for years. He has the Daily Herald partially because this man's columns Russell Lewis saw joins us Now here on W S. Russell. Welcome back. How are you, sir? Good. John. How are you doing tonight? I'm well, I know it's difficult to get writers on the radio after six. P.m.. Thank you for your contribution, sir. My pleasure. Thanks for having me back on the show. Well, looking at the people who have declared to challenge Adam Kinzinger, assuming he still has a district left when this is all done, and we'll get to that part of the conversation. Fourth with Is there, seven or eight declared challengers to Adam Kinzinger. On the Republican side. There are a total of seven candidates, including representative Kinzinger. There's also one Democrat Challenge so far, Okay, understood. So Let's stay out of these six Republicans. Whatever that means, nowadays challenging Adam Kinzinger over half of them believe that Joe Biden is a discredited And, uh, not not president. Knighted states that Donald Trump is, in fact, the legitimate president States that right for of those six. Well, it really depends on how you want to look at it. Uh, There's at least one of them who insist that Donald Trump is still president. And that's Theresa fast that he is that that Trump is the rifle president of the United States. The others have issued a variety of statements each during interviews to me or in social media, All insisting, and these are four of the six I should say or three of the sex, all insisting that Trump actually won the election. And that Biden, the holds the only the Oval Office only through through trickery and cheating. Theresa. And how do you bounce her last name Fast. I believe. Okay. So Theresa questions how Trump lead in key states on election night but was behind the next day, she realized they in some states. It was against the law to begin to process those ballots until the polls were closed. Uh, Trump voters went out because, he said, don't trust the mail and balance don't trust the absentee ballots. They wound day off where Biden's voters voted by and large that pandemic here that November by mail and other methods, I mean, why can't she wrap her head around this? And I know that's a lot of question. I I don't know it is. It is something that Uh, that republicans who are denying the election? Uh it's one of the points that they're hanging their hat on. And the explanation is very, very simple. There are A number of states Illinois being one of them that have multiple early voting options put in by mail voting in person early, there are states where where you can register to vote and vote early. Much closer to election day. Then you can't even in Illinois, Um And the numbers changed. There was this red Mirage. Somebody who I interviewed last year coined the phrase the Red Mirage, where Republicans went to bed on election night, thinking they were victors and lost in key races once All the early votes and vote by mail. And even the, UM The late arriving vote by mail made a difference in many races. The Lauren Underwood, uh Jim over whites race in particular. Yeah, that took a while to determine who won That Russell Russell Russell lists Oz here from the Daily Herald. You know the mega world number one they didn't expect to win in 2016. They were overjoyed when they did win. And beat Hillary unexpectedly. Then they thought they were going to win in 20, and to have that taken away from that explains some of the anger and distrust in that segment of our society. Who is Geno Young as Hugh musician Kato Young is one of the candidates who has announced that he's running to defeat Adam Kinzinger. He's a musician from Chicago. Of course, under the congressional system. You don't leave me to live within a district in order to serve that district in Congress, although who knows how the map is going to be drawn by the time June, 2022 primary rolls around. What about James Martyr? He's from Oswego, isn't he? James Martyr has run for multiple offices. 30 years he's run percentage. He's run for Congress a couple times. He, uh if you if you go back and look for Northeastern Illinois and and Illinois is a whole, he's been on the ballot quite a bit. So we have martyr Young and I forgot how to pronounce her last name again. I believe it's fast, fat or fast. Fast for a P. It's P f A F F, Okay. And who else is involved here? There's a man from Hanukkah who said Biden friendly, stole the White House from Trump. But he acknowledges that Biden is named president by a legal and constitutional process. Can you get inside this gentleman's I had for me. Uh, you know, I I've spoken with Michael re brunch that that's the gentleman's name. He's an activist from Manuka, a truck driving company. There, um Getting inside candidates head is is not something that I generally do. Um, so I I'd like a side step that the other candidates are Jack's Lombardi. And Catalina, Laos. She had a very slick video. I watched the video when she announced she seems to have some real retail political talents, and she seems very, very charismatic. Tell me a little bit more about her. She's from Woodstock. Yeah. She ran for the 14th congressional district in 2020. And I think was the favorite. Uh and then, and then Jim Oberweis wound up You know? Picking up the the Republican nomination. I think a lot of people thought Catalina was going to was going to take that and face incumbent Democrat Lauren Underwood in the general. Now she's running in in the 16th. She's got more money saved them. The other Republican candidates, the other announced Republican candidate sport for this post. Um Of course, Congressman Kinzinger is leading foreign away when it comes to fundraising and preparedness for the showdown in June. Do you think he has sticks it out or bags this and try something different? You know, I don't know. Uh, I think it's going to depend on a map, uh, that that's going to be a big factor. Um, you know what district is channel? I'm going to be drawn into where he lives. What? What is the area that is now the 16th. What is it going to look like? And, you know, does he even though we insisted he isn't. Is he going to make that run for statewide office, which a lot of people suspect, um, that he's been he's been considering, or will he Run in the 16th whatever the 16th looks like, or run in whatever district China hand gets to run into. You might just call it a day and go into the private sector is going to make a boatload could very well be. Well, thank you for your time. And your analysis Russell. I always appreciate your columns in the Daily Herald. I'm a subscriber and a happy subscriber. I like to support the papers are still hanging on. Thank you, John. I appreciate it. Good to talk to you again. All right, Russell, take care. Have a good evening. Russell Loose are from the Daily Herald. Joining us here on WLS. So If your company says To come back to work and you are coming back to work. You must go get the vaccine. Would you possibly say? I have a religious objection to. In fact, I'll prove it to you.

"Annum. Kim singer is the most obnoxious republican in the entire congress. And that's saying something. He was one of ten republicans who voted to impeach president trump. In the second impeachment he was one of only republicans in the entire house to vote to create a select committee to investigate the january sixth protests. He's the one who bald and put on the the Presumably emmy award winning show recently where he cried about january sixth. I do not like the guy. And i'm hoping to do something about it and that's why we're talking to jack lombardi. Who's running against him. Jack lombardi welcome to the show. Sir thank you sir. Thank you for having me on and thank you to your listeners. Appreciate all of you. I think you stole my material. And no no. Because let's let's start with this before we get to kim singer. And what a bad guy he is. Let's talk about you and why you want to do this. It's a big deal to run for office. You have to put your life on. Hold your family and everybody else has to make a lot of sacrifices. Let's start with who you are and why you're running. Well it it is true. Okay what you said is absolutely true. Who i am. I'm a chicago native. My mom's from the south though so she's very happy. Then i'm on a texas radio we I spent time in texas city. Texas ingles side corpus christi. That's most of my childhood My grandmother lived down in corpus christi. So we spent on there with her and You know water burger anytime. i'm in texas. i definitely stopped to get a wider burger and Yeah definitely know that. His w up here and w down there. So why am i running. I you know let's be honest. What are we doing to our children to our grandchildren. Look what's happening. This is it's generational theft of what's happening. I mean the democrats are unhinged. They're spending money. You know the running the bill up on purpose. They know they're doing they know what they're doing You got someone like adam. Kim singer who voted to impeach president trump. Who is possibly the most patriotic president. This country's ever known and that's just wrong. I mean it's just wrong. And he's not representing the people sixteen district. That's not how they believe. Now let me tell you. Texas folks a little fact about illinois. We are red state. We are a very red state. We just have one county. And some of the collar counties that bolt blue not because those people are bad people. They just spend indoctrinated with you. Know the leftist ideas for very long and many of the union members vote read but their unions. Tom the vote blue. Because that's where the money's coming from for these you know projects that they have. But we're actually a red state it's a little known Unknown fact that that other other states don't know about illinois. But you know what's interesting. Jack i see this in new york. We're on an upstate. New york and a lot of people in new york are conservative. God fearing country serving flag-waving people but they can't overcome the boroughs the big new york city. I look at oregon. Where you've got to oregon's it's like a donut. In the hole in the middle is portland and and that county multnomah county is is sort of up against the rest of the state that our farmers in in lumber guys and and good solid folks. You see this in so many places where you've just got that big city and i know that that's what happens in in illinois as well talk a bit the sixteenth congressional district. Kim singers been in there since i guess two thousand ten. Talk a little bit about the demographics where this is what the people like you know. It's rural america. it's texas just you know it's flat just not as hot. It's rural america. It's just good people. God fearing people just wanna go to work. Get their paycheck and be left alone and enjoy family. You know on the weekend i mean. Mid westerners we all share the same family values. we share Table top economics. I mean that's the type of people these are other not fancy people They're just could good honest people that i mean. That's the best way. I could describe the sixteen district of illinois. The sixteenth district runs like backwards. J. around the collar counties of of shadowland k. And it goes all the way up from rock for you know which is You know small city in illinois all the way loops around to indiana in goes out the central illinois. yea it makes that loop These are farm these farm town. Small town usa Everyone knows everyone's business. There's you know they all go to the same church That's that's the best way. I could describe it. I'm good hard working american folk. I'm looking at kim singers numbers. And this guy's gotta go. He happens to be a republican. But he's a liz cheney republican so in two thousand twelve he wins sixty two percents of the district in the general election. In fourteen he wins seventy one in sixteen. He wins ninety nine in eighteen. He wins sixty in twenty. He wins sixty five percent. So you need this. This is a district. That's been carried by the republican. Every year in november except for two thousand eight when obama barely beat mccain. So you got to win the primary. How do you convince republican primary voters in the sixteenth. That we're going to toss out a republican which voter everybody wants term limits. But they keep they keep voting for their. They've been voting for this guy for a while. How do you beat him in the republican primary. Because that's what you gotta win it's real. You're right that is the race. And that's you know that's what i tell you. Know potential donors. It's not people. Try to stay out of the primary so no this is the race because there's really no democrat involved. It is really oppose any threat right. So is the race you to be honest with you. They most of the county's essentially him. They don't want him anymore. They've the see him from what he is. And now you know. He voted like a liberal the beginning then he votes in line with president trump ninety nine percent one hundred fifteen then. He voted like ninety was ninety percent. One hundred sixteen in some change. Don't quote me on that. And then all of a sudden he turns his back. I mean my tweet. Today was if it wasn't for bad character and him kim zinger would have no character. I mean stay who you are. Stay who you are fundamentally. But he's a typical politician a career politician. And yeah i mean this is why so many americans. I think it's eighty three percent of americans support term limits because they identified this. They see that what these people do. I call him say anything democrat even though he supposedly republican. I don't see it but you don't. That's why i call them. I call them a say anything. You know political Lifer tha- that's what he is. He'll say whatever he has to say to get voted he's he's come back here now he's been going around trying to test you know areas to see if he has any You know support and there are some areas he actually does because some of the voters You know they they don't. He's.
