Are Republicans supporting election integrity? How about medical freedom? What about protecting your rights? Not only are they not supporting these things, they are actually standing in the way of protecting your rights and the legitimacy of the vote. Former US Senate candidate and political activist "Demand" Daniel McCarthy returns to bring us up to speed. He's on the ground at the Capital and things don't look good.
Notes from the show and Homework:
Why did Donald Trump usher in more gun control than Obama?
Why did Donald Trump warp speed us to the mandatory jab?
Why did Donald Trump abandon his supporters during the January 6th event?
Why is Wendy Rogers blocking the only REAL election integrity bill in Arizona?
Why is the speaker Rusty Bowers trying to kill the bill?
Why did we do the highly publicized election audit only to do nothing to fix the elections?
Why are Republicans refusing to protect Americans' right to shop, travel, work, and more without getting the jab?

fighting back against the left's non stop attacks on liberty, freedom. And America, America. This is don't tread on liberty. Jason Davis is on the air.Jason Davis:
Hey, welcome back to liberty. Thanks for being here. This is Jason Davis. And we're gonna do a special report kind of a legislative update with everything that's going on. In Arizona. We're right in the middle of the session. There's a lot of things going on with election integrity and medical freedom here in the state. I'm going to bring in somebody who knows, probably better than anybody what's going on, you can normally find him down at the Capitol. He's very plugged in. He's very active, legislatively and politically in the state. It's former US Senate candidate Daniel McCarthy back with us. Daniel, thank you for taking some time out of your very busy schedule, running around back and forth and meetings with the Capitol and the legislators. Really appreciate it. You're on your cell phone. So I'm going to jump right in with the elephant in the room. Which is this beef that you have going with Donald Trump. Now you did the melon, that million dollar challenge. You've called him out. I've called him out. I think there's some questions he needs to answer and so to you, but can you've taken a lot of heat? I want to give you the opportunity. Tell everybody what's going on with his beef with Donald Trump? How did we get to this place, and just bring us up to speed with that"Demand" Daniel McCarthy:
he's not a Washington, DC guy. And I think all a lot of people, including myself, in 2016, kind of clung on to him, based on the fact that he sold us on the idea that he was going to fight for, you know, Republican values, conservative values. I think what we discovered relatively quickly, inside of the first couple years of his administration was that he wasn't really advocating for conservative values all that much. He said a lot of good things, when you really dig in into what was actually done. Keep in mind, we had a Republican majority in the Senate in the house at the federal level, under Donald Trump's first two years. So it's it's, it became apparent to me relatively quickly that something's not exactly right. With what he was saying, in comparison, what he was doing. Now, granted, he can't take away some of the good things. I mean, I know whenever I talk like this, people say, Well, you know, he was he did this or that he was the greatest presidents like well, let's just dig into the details a little bit. There was more gun control federally than we've ever had before. Under Donald Trump. I mean, fix Nick's was a big deal. A lot of people don't know fix Nick's and what happened there, but I'm not going to bore your audience with the details. But let me just tell you, there was some significant changes made that make it to where there's an there's a registry now of gun owners. So the largest registries of gun owners nationwide was created under Donald Trump. Our federal debt exploded under Donald Trump in ways that we haven't seen before. There was there was a there was more stimulus given out to people, that's socialism. Today, no one wants to admit to it, because it's like, well, no, it was it was COVID. Well, let's talk about COVID. You know, Operation warp speed. You know, we this this culture of Operation warp speed two years ago, this is almost two years ago, that was ushered in by Donald Trump. He endorsed people all over the country that are terrible, nonconservative non conservative people. These are people that are typically either establishment Republicans, unit party figures, you know, the list goes on and on of all these things that were done with Donald Trump. And it just got to the point with me, where I finally said, look, the culture of our world has been forever changed, because under the leadership of Donald Trump, he did not stand in the way and say, say, hey, we were just attack. We just had a biological attack, period. We're at war period. I think China's the, the perpetrator of that war period, I do not think we're going to change American lifestyles at all. We do not do anything other than make sure freedom is accelerated when we're under a communist attack. Now, great. I'm gonna say one last thing about this, Jason, just because this is the other thing that cracks me up. A lot of people don't know. But August of 2020 when I lost supposedly laws to Martha mcsalley in the Senate race and the candidate, the primary, I told everybody I said, there is fraud going on. It wasn't Daniel McCarthy saying I had whistleblowers calling me saying Daniel, they were filtering the ballots to match what they put out on the machines. So I started to tell people, hey, it looks to me like they're going to commit fraud to Donald Trump. The next day after my primary, Doug doozy, aka Doug Roscoe, his real name is Doug Roscoe was in the Oval Office with Donald Trump talking about how safe mail in ballots were day after my primary. You know, one thing that people seem to forget is is that Donald Trump was well aware of how they were conducting fraud. And people say, Well, what was he supposed to do about it? Well, not us, you're in a communist regime. I mean, I, I can tell you this, if, if I had 85 million votes across the country, you wouldn't have a Joe Biden in office. I promise you that. So that was the last straw for me, is when I witnessed how he handled the election fraud. It was clear at that point that he's in on the theater. He's in the professional wrestling that we call politics.Jason Davis:
Yeah, I mean, you know, his, the biggest one, as you mentioned, was warp speed. I mean, that really mean that really shows everything you need to know. And there's so many people, unfortunately, that still support Donald Trump, and will just crucify anyone that even questions him. And you know, that's a big, that's a big percentage of people on the right side of the aisle in this country. So I mean, what do you think we do about that? I"Demand" Daniel McCarthy:
think what we have to do is just keep on chipping away and be bolder and bolder. I mean, I think that the biggest problem is, is that the the people that are thinking the same thing that I just said about Donald Trump and have the same concerns that I do, they hide, they hide their feelings. So they are the influencers that are out there, a lot of influencers have reached out to either myself or Maggie. And, you know, they've said things to us, like, pay, you know, thank you guys for saying what you're saying, we support what you guys are doing. Thank you for doing what you're doing. But they themselves won't do that. I'm not gonna name any names. There's one guy in particular, this sticks out. This guy's a US national influence. I mean, if I feel bad I could I I'll call him out eventually. Now, let's not do that. And the fact is, it's like behind closed doors. He's like, Oh, yeah, I totally support you guys. But it's like in public. They like Oh, they got to kind of couch L. Donald Trump is they're afraid. It's like, what do you guys are afraid of like, you know, start talking to people about the truth and the truth defends itself. I mean, Donald, Donald Trump's actions speak for themselves. I challenged Donald Trump to a $1 million debate. I mean, like I said, I tell people this all the time to tell him to shut me up. Don't if you if you really care about Donald Trump, and you if you're a fan of Donald Trump, still doesn't matter what I say, or anybody else says to you, and you are gonna worship this guy? Why don't you reach out to him and reach out to his campaign staff and say, You better shut this guy up, because he's out there saying all these terrible things about you. And I say that, because if, if I'm even remotely correct, it would be a good idea that someone's standing up and trying to drive conservative values back in the forefront of Donald Trump's mind. Because if he's even remotely real, sounds like he has a lot of yes, people around him or a lot of people around him that just tell him what he wants to hear.Jason Davis:
Yeah, I think that's accurate. And it looks like he's gonna run again. So I'm sure you know, 80 million people will vote for him again. So let's move right into voting because, you know, it kind of looks like elections are not really what they used to be. Probably not for a long time. But we Arizona is at the forefront with the Arizona audit. So this is another area where people seem to think that, you know, the election is going to be decertified and the electors are going to be recalled and Donald Trump is going to be in the White House tomorrow, which I've been saying as a complete joke for the last almost two years. So here we have House Bill 2596 That was introduced that would actually fix voting in Arizona. That's one day one vote on paper in Person ID required hand count time limits on when they have to be counted all those good things like that, somehow the face of the movement, Wendy Rogers, Sonny Borelli people like that the travel the country trying to tell everybody to do an audit or not supporting this bill, why is that?"Demand" Daniel McCarthy:
Not only not supporting it standing in the way of it. So what they what they did was is we gave them this language. So the language that you just explained to everybody is so simplistic. You can't, you cannot mess this up. If you try it. It's a one day one vote on paper in person, no mail in ballots, no machines. So it's a very simple language. It basically reverses the time of, you know, voting back to, you know, early 1900s voting right, early 1900s. So it's like, there's no way of it's failproof because the precincts are doing the counting, the counting is decentralized. It's not being done at one tabulation center like it currently is. And it was really surprising to me when last year remind you we created this language with information from 1000s of Arizonans reached out to me, and we did huge polling, we did huge groups of people to get to contribute towards this. So it wasn't like Ganga McCarthy just came up with this language. We worked with a huge team of people inside from my campaign and from activist, the best activist all across Arizona and Probably even yourself. I mean, you were probably one of those people Jason that reached out and said, Hey, this is yes, this is good or this is what you should add to it or whatever. So we did all that before last session. We gave that to the state legislative body. Well after I'm sorry, well before they begin session in 2021. So interestingly enough, this is where it gets even. This is where it gets even scarier. Wendy Rogers, Sonny Borelli, Mark Fincham, all those names that have been propped up nationwide, they actually had this bill language in front of them clear back when they could have done something immediately. They could have done this literally immunity. So people say to me all the time, like, oh, you know, these guys are fighting for us or whatever. It's like how calling for decertification is not fighting for you fixing the problem. So in fact, we can make sure we have real elections moving forward would be them fighting for you, we can, we can walk and chew gum at the same time, we can find out if there was actual crimes and find out all those things and do audits and all those things. But it was interesting, right? The audit happened in this huge smoke screen was created so that those legislators had an excuse to raise money and to do all these things, rather than just passing a bill that would have fixed the problem. So it's, it's it's quite an interesting thing. So why they aren't doing it, in my opinion, is because they actually don't want to fix or get rid of mail in ballots. They don't want to get rid of the machines for voting. Because if they did, that's exactly what would have happened, Dave, one obsession, and I would have expected every Republican in the state legislative body to say we're not going to do anything, until we fix the voting in this fashion this case and think about this. I mean, and I know you agree with me on this, but I want your audience to really think about this. What an opportunity for any state legislator to say, look, one day one vote on paper they could have done they could have taken that language. It wasn't like I was saying to anybody, like I need credit for this or this belongs, you know, they, they need to say put my name on it or anything like that it was behind closed doors, that I had reached out to all of them privately and said, guys, this is what Arizona wants, this is what everyone's gonna want. So this year, get you up to speed get your audience with speed, John Fillmore was brave enough to to write the you need to write the bill or take our bill and put it inside of an actual bill number. John Fillmore worked with our team really well in got the bill done. And what did rusty Bowers do the Speaker of the House, he assigned it to 12 committees. That's something in our in our research, we found that that never one time has happened in Arizona's history, where the Speaker of the House took one bill and assigned it to every single committee in the State House, in essence, trying to kill the bill, but not just kill it, in essence, trying to ridicule us in mock our efforts to fix voting. So it's quite, quite scary.Jason Davis:
Now, this is the same guy you don't know rusty Bowers, this is the same guy that you tried to get recalled last year. And this is the same person now who's introduced legislation to protect the transgender communities in the same way that you know, veterans or people of color are protected things like that. Isn't he also sponsoring something where they can use each other's bathrooms or something? I don't know the guy is the guy is off his rocker. I don't know what's going on. Supposedly a Republican again. So with the voting, it seems like they don't it seems like they don't believe that. People want this like they think it's going to be unpopular or something. Yeah, it's"Demand" Daniel McCarthy:
I can't I can't get over how Republicans haven't rallied behind this because I have gotten coverage across the country covered by every every media, every press opportunity out there. John Fillmore sitting here basking in this glory of being a hero, when every single one of them for the bassinet glory. So it's to your point. Republicans on the ground real voters like the people that actually are at home, that pay attention to politics when they have to every single person from high powered attorneys in Arizona to some individuals that are not have meetings, it seems universally, everyone agrees that this is the best way of fixing our voting in everybody's willing to take one day of their lives and actually physically go in and vote to make sure that doesn't happen again. Well, that'sJason Davis:
the way that's the way it was for many years before we had the internet and so forth. I don't understand why it's such a big deal. And the other thing is, you know, and I've talked to John Fillmore before, and he's been on this program before and, you know, I I don't understand. So is it just that these Republicans are so weakened spineless they're so afraid of being criticized by the liberal media. Is that is it that or is it something else? Like, are they? Are they just spineless? Are they complicit in the fraud?"Demand" Daniel McCarthy:
Okay, it's both. It's both. I mean, in some cases, they're, they just don't like to be inside of that situation where they have the left coming after them. But in a lot of cases, in my estimation, they're actually in. I mean, really, there's, there's a good possibility. And I know, when I say this to people, they're like, well, kind of, there's a good possibility that our politics right down to the state legislative body level, is theatrics. It's, it's professional wrestling, it's good cop versus bad cop. It's a It's all designed in such a way to actually deceive the public to keep the kind of train moving whatever direction that the elites want the train to move in, like, people. It's, I'm not, you know, when I say that, and when I say that to people, I hope people understand this isn't coming from some, you know, inside baseball radical, you know, tinfoil hat wearing guy here, like, I've had a successful career in business. As you know, I have made lots of I've brought in hundreds of millions of dollars into the state of Arizona, from around the world. And I am telling everybody, that something is really wrong with how these people are able to do what they're doing. There's an ecosystem, that seems to be propaganda, and politicians are involved on involved in it, and it goes pretty deep. So I think personally, ones like Wendy Rogers, I truly believe that she's just an actress in the play. You know? And again, I know that scary and I know when people think that they think will, boy, a boy, if that's how bad it is. What kind of hope, I would say and maybe been like this for a long time, and we just are now starting to realize how badJason Davis:
yeah, I think I think you're probably right now, assuming that, you know, this bill gets killed, and they don't really fix anything. I mean, based on what we saw in the audit results, I mean, it's pretty clear that there's a lot of there's a lot of fraud in the voting. So I mean, if nothing is fixed, then voting is not real. So Should people be voting anymore? I mean, what do you think about that?"Demand" Daniel McCarthy:
Yeah, I do. I just think it's important for people to continue to continue to contribute in every way possible. I just think that, unfortunately, because of the times that we're in voting is not enough anymore. So whereas before, it was like, Okay, we're gonna vote him out, we can't vote any harder than what we just did for Donald Trump. And if we, if we were able to allow that to just kind of get done and look at January 6, now only did not only did they communist, steal an election and show us that there's general election, they took individuals that were basically painted into the capital, and they arrested them. So now they're demonstrating to us that they will they, we can't do anything about it. So what I think people have to realize is that the war that we're in, as a country right now is the most sophisticated war we've ever been in. So you have to be more politically active than what you've ever been. It's, I don't, I don't want to, you know, spend my time. You know, I don't wanna spend my time talking to state legislators and convincing them of why they need to pass this law. But if there were 10,000 of me downtown, doing that on a daily basis, or on a regular basis, you'd be surprised how fast this can turn around. And, you know, I know that a lot of people when they, it's nice, because you hear so I know what it's like because I was one of those guys. I mean, I remember when when I heard a certain politicians and people that were involved with the fight, and I really appreciated their efforts. It's like, oh, man, I'm glad they're fighting to fight on our behalf. That's no longer an option. You can no longer sit by and say, Well, I'm glad this person's out there doing it for me, you got to kind of say, Okay, I'm going to go help this guy out. So my, my, my plea to everybody is is that, go down to the Capitol, immediately. Go find your representatives, go talk to them. And ask them why they aren't. phone calling is not enough, emailing is not enough anymore. You got to kind of ramp up our political pressure. Because, you know, I don't know where this is going. But, you know, today, just today, I was denied the ability to take to get something that I need from the state of Arizona, I was denied my ability to get something that I needed that only the state of Arizona could provide because I was unwilling to wear a mask. I was told that I had to go online at home and do this in order to get what I needed this license for. In order for me to be able to do that I had to go home and go online and wait two or three weeks in order to get that well. That's the world that we're now living in. I'm not allowed into my home. government buildings, unless you wear a mask. This is two years into this. Now what happens if they say, Hey, you're no longer allowed in here, you no longer can function in society unless, unless you have a social credit score. You have you have injections.Jason Davis:
Yeah, yeah, for sure. And that. And that brings me into my next question, which is the next thing that's Of equal importance to fix in the elections. And that would be stopping vaccine passports and mandates, not just in government buildings, Daniel, but for private employment. So, you know, I talked to attorney Mark Victor, on this program a couple of weeks ago, who's coincidentally running for US Senate. And, you know, he's a pretty freedom minded type of guy, very libertarian type of person. And, of course, his take is that a private business can do whatever they want in their business. Now, I agree to some extent, however, the government is already controlling what businesses do seven different ways from Sunday, I mean, how much they pay, how much sick time they pass out, having wheelchair ramps in the door, I mean, you name it, they they are they've got all kinds of requirements on businesses. I don't see why this is any different to you. I think"Demand" Daniel McCarthy:
it's, I think, where we have a problem with the vaccine mandates, in terms of how to fix the problem is a little bit different than then how it's being proposed to fix the problem. So for example, there's, this is where I've had a really, I've had a real hard time with this, because a lot of people don't want to get into this debate or get into this conversation, because like you said, a lot of libertarian leaning or conservative people make the excuse that businesses should have the right to mandate whatever they want.Jason Davis:
But Daniel, they don't because look, they can't deny to hire you, if you're black, just because you're black. They can't deny to hire you. Because of this, that or the other, they have to pay you a certain wage, they have to provide you certain benefits, they have to give you so many breaks, they have to I mean, come on, Daniel, the government's already telling these guys what they can again, do."Demand" Daniel McCarthy:
No, no, no, you miss you misheard what I was saying, I know, do I agree with what you're saying that the businesses cannot be, they cannot require someone to take a vaccine, I believe that they should be, they should be penalized. Meaning that it's not, it's one thing to say that the business can't require someone to have a vaccine because a business cannot require you in any way shape, or form as an employee or as a customer to take a shot. That's an experimental drug period and a story. You and I aren't 100% of light there. The differences is that I believe that if a business has done that, or is attempting to do that, they should be penalized to the to a certain penalty, that penalty should be minimally monetary. But I think it should also involve potential felony charges for anybody that's trying to do it. Because think about this for a second, Jason. If I walk into a business, and that business says, okay, in order for you to shop for groceries, to get food, you have to have we have to be very strong here. So I totally agree with you. I just, I, I think it's you go one step further. And this is where I've had some difficulties because your legislators willing to run by them, which is there should be penalized. These, these people should be penalized for the last couple years, these penalized. So think about this, this has fired somebody. So if someone has now been two years, where they haven't been able to make a living, that they've worked on it, let's say they worked at a job for for 20 years, and they had to be fired. Because, you know, two years ago they were forced to take a vaccine or a year ago, then that business should be liable because of trying to get someone to firing someone for not taking an experimental drug.Jason Davis:
Yeah, no. And we agree on that. And I agree with you. I'm saying it should flat out be illegal, they should flat out be closed down. I mean, look, Governor Ducey was around yanking people's business licenses that didn't make people wear masks in their business. Well, how about we go against their business license if they try to make people take a shot? How about that?"Demand" Daniel McCarthy:
That's okay. See, now you're where I that's what I was trying to say. I apologize. Let me make sure that concern was right. There any business that has done that is to be penalized to the fullest extent of the law, and there also should be definitely illegal.Jason Davis:
Yeah. And so we agree on that. Totally. I'm right where you're at, they should be penalized. That should be a felony. I'm with you. 100%. My problem and you know, look, I like Mark Victor. I like him. He's a nice guy. I mean, I respect him greatly. But the thing is, is that libertarian principles only work if everybody's on the same page. And in our society, the government doesn't believe they don't really care much in liberty at all. So, now we're in a position where we have to protect these rights by law. And we don't you know, you don't have the luxury of just saying it's up to the business owner. While there's a lot of things that aren't up to the business owner, and this should just be added on to that list."Demand" Daniel McCarthy:
No, yeah, no, I think I think we're under attack. I think that I think that the secret sauce there, the vaccine is a potential attack on the country. I call it Twitter, the vaccine variant on the belief that this thing is an actual crime against,Jason Davis:
yeah, I think it could be absolutely, it's very possible, you know, time will tell and more data is coming out every single day, and it doesn't look good. So last question. I know you're very busy. You did run for US senate last time around. Like you said, they probably skewed it in the favor. So that you weren't able to do beat mcsalley in the primary. But there's a lot of talk, you know, and I'm hearing things this and that, maybe here or there. Are you running for office again? Or will you run?"Demand" Daniel McCarthy:
Yeah, I'm gonna, I'm gonna run at some point, I'm definitely going to run for office, I want to serve, I want to serve Arizona, in a capacity, I would I would love, I would love to run this election cycle. The challenge with this election cycle for me is, is that a couple things are up in the air for me to make that determination. And those things, unfortunately, are in the air right now, still. So if I'm going to do something, this election cycle, it's going to be literally last minute. And I'm okay with that. Because, frankly, most people in Arizona know where I stand and who I am and all that kind of stuff. So it's not like I need to be out there. I'm still working right now. I mean, I think if you watch if anybody watches me, they'll see that I just go to work. I mean, when I decided to get involved in politics, I don't really care about a position. I mean, I joke around I call myself the CEO of Arizona, because I'm just, I'm just working in the same way I would if, if you hired me or didn't hire me, I'm not going to take any pay for any job. So I mean, at some point, I would love to serve Arizona in a capacity, I really love the idea of I would love to serve the people there zona, as a governor for so many reasons, the water, and there's so many things that need to get done in the state that I can make this state. Just just I can, we can make this state bigger than and stronger than most liberal states that we compete against very quickly. I think we're just some, some really quick tweaks. So I mean, I would love to serve in that capacity. But, you know, unfortunately, the way things are set up and Rick, you know, I don't want to, I don't want to waste my time, or my team's time. Because we have to focus on the on the ground at the legislative body and get things done quickly. So you know, I'm, I'm working really hard on making that decision over the next couple of weeks. Well, you know, we'll, we'll probably I imagine we'll probably make a decision in February at some point on what I'm going to end up doing. So. You know, I appreciate you asking, it's, you know, I really, really appreciate so many people were so good to me during the campaign. And I love this state so much, you know how much I love to say this is I've been here. Since I've been 13 years old on and off. I mean, I live here by choice, I could live anywhere in the world I wanted to and this is where I live. So I can't wait to serve in some capacity. But right now, I just got to, like I said, I got to still focus on making that decision.Jason Davis:
Yeah, my hear you. That's fair enough. So to get involved, you're saying Get your butt down to the Capitol, get to your legislator, talk to them in person. That's one thing that we can do. You're talking about getting everybody involved. They have to be active in politics. So like, what via be a precinct committee man or something like that. I assume you mean, right."Demand" Daniel McCarthy:
You everything. Yeah. Get involved with the Republican Party get involved. The Patriot party. That's the party that we established on. I think it's important that people start working with the Patriot party. Even if you're a Republican precinct committee member, you should still be working with the Patriot party because we have access to information and things that represent Republican Party state. So you should we want to take over the Republican Party from the inside and the outside. You know, I think a lot of people still wonder what we actually are doing with Patriot party and I can I can tell you that it's the best opportunity for activists in the country. So if you go to stop the rhinos, calm rhinos is R I N O 's. But if you go to stop the rhino's dot com, that you can find out a ton of information about what we're doing. But you plug in with the Patriot party, and you'll have access to information and you know how to help support bills that need to be supported. But yes, get down to the Capitol. If anything else. If you don't want to be involved with with anything else. Just find a friend to go down to the Capitol with find a bill that you want to support in, we can give you those bills, but get down to the Capitol Tell your legislators that we want to put on these bills right away. It's very important.Jason Davis:
It certainly is. Yeah. Stop the rhinos calm for the Patriot party. Basically grassroots on the ground type of activism. Daniel McCarthy demand Daniel, thanks for coming back and talking to me again. We really appreciate it."Demand" Daniel McCarthy:
