- Raven Harrison: If it's in your sights, it's on my radar. I'm Raven Harrison. We'll be airborne shortly.
- [Intro Video]
- Raven Harrison: As the midterms approach, we can all agree that we are in the midst of the longest, most excruciating, I told you so, and the accelerated destruction of our country, playing out in real time. We've got work to do. My goal here with this podcast, with this segment, is to give people not only the bad side, but what do we intend to do about it? Faith without works is dead. So let's have a plan. God at the helm, transparency in our process, and verbs in our sentences. So let's start by assessing what it really is. What's really going on in our country right now? I and many Americans are watching what's playing out in real time right before us.
- So what do we got? We have a joke of an administration that has yielded the following catastrophes that we're dealing with in real time. We have skyrocketing inflation. Everyone can see this unless you have the benefit of living in the gaslight that the far left is trying to have shine on what we're all seeing with our own eyes. There is no universe that we can convince sane patriotic Americans that 8% inflation is a good thing. It is crippling our economy, which is on life support at the moment. We also have unprecedented censorship of conservatives like myself and others going on at the moment. Free speech is our most fundamental and defining right of our democracy. Our constitutional republic is predicated on the voices and the passion of free men and women. We also have escalating tensions with our allies and adversaries.
- We have a nuclear armageddon getting ready to form in Russia-Ukraine conflict. It is horrible. How did it start? It's escalating. Bombs are literally bursting in air. What's our plan? We also have a staple here in Texas is our wide open southern border. Thanks to the border czar, Kamala, the cackler, and his emptiness, Biden, we have rolled out a welcome mat for cartels, sex traffickers, fentanyl, and illegal border crossers, which is crippling our economy and our infrastructure. It is overwhelming our resources and it is against the oath that every one of these politicians took to secure and protect American citizens. It is beyond unconscionable what is going on in our country. Now, that's the bad news, and that's pretty bad. But here's what we can all agree on is that each one of these has a solution, and we need to start tackling those as we move forward.
- That's my plan. As much as I know you guys all want to sit here and watch me talk, we really need to have a plan of attack. And we are good at that. So let's start by attacking these one at a time. So we've got the midterms coming up. November 8th is our general election, and we have a lot of people who stand behind and are really encouraged by the red wave. I am moderately hopeful for what we're planning on seeing on November 8th, but I'm also cautious. History has shown us that the best predictor of future behavior is past behavior, and Lord knows we have a lot of bad behavior that's going on right now as a precedent.
- But here's what we do know. So the Dems hold a 220 to 212 majority in the House currently. We're looking at needing a net five gain in the November 8th election for us to regain the House. We are split 50-50 in the Senate. So as far as the red wave goes, we also have to take into consideration the changes that are coming because of the redistricting we have. So the redistricting based on the 2020 census, which should have been a little bit more transparent, but for the purposes of our podcast, let's just outline. They saw a net gain of congressional seats in six states. I've got a graphic up on the screen right now for those of us who are listening showing where we have net gains and losses. So we picked up six congressional seats. We picked up seats in six congressional states. So the purple that those of us who are watching are looking at show the losses.
- California, Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and New York all lost seats. Seven in total. The green we're seeing Oregon, Montana, Colorado, North Carolina, Florida, and the great state of Texas all picked up seats. So that is very, very encouraging going in. What we need to see behind all of that is there is a lot of wiggle room that's going to be happening on November 8th. So we not only have to remove the radical communist agenda that is taking over our country, but we also have to hold accountable the spineless, wishy-washy, milk toast, Republican and independent representation we have had in the house thus far.
- It does no good if we don't stand behind our principles. If you don't stand for something. Come on, you guys have heard this one. You'll fall for anything. So we have to move on for that. We also have to look on what's going on around the world. Foreign policy, we are in an epic disaster. So let's talk about the catastrophe that is unfolding in the Russia, Ukraine, debacle. Foreign policy, which is non-existent is dead. So we have to look at what it is. People are asking, is nuclear war really a possibility? I would say that the fact that the Biden administration has purchased $290 million worth of anti-radiation tablets from big pharmaceutical companies as a good indicator of what they believe our chances are. So I would instruct any patriots Americans to be prepared. I would also advise any Americans who are thinking what I'm thinking, which is I'm wondering if I can claim Ukraine as a dependent on my taxes in 2022 to investigate that with your financial advisor with all the foreign aid that is going out to this country.
- So I would also like for Americans to pay attention to what is happening on our southern border. This is not a drill, guys. We have fentanyl coming in. We're getting ready to go into Halloween. And people are wondering if that's going to be disguised in with the candy their kids are receiving. We have this problem out of control and it is funneling right through our southern border. That affects us front line and first here in Texas and it is absolutely an outrage. We should have our border secured as much as I'm enjoying watching DeSantis and Abbott bus and ship these migrants to these sanctuary cities. It's not a solution to the problem. We have to get real about this. We cannot leave a welcome mat for drug dealers, drugs and crime at our southern border. We have to fix it.
- So as far as this conservative warrior is concerned, first order of business is to gain control of the house and or Senate. And second order of business is to hold accountable our elected officials. November 8th we party. November 9th we hold feet to the fire. That's the way we have to do it. And speaking in that and getting verbs in our sentences and actions in our plans, I am going to be bringing on some of the best, most profound and most notable frontline warriors in our conservative movement. Next up, we are going to have Ryan for me a founder of students for Trump and absolutely amazing force in the conservative movement. Just ahead.
- Stay with us. So Patriots, as I promised, you know, we are really going to be in the trenches. If we're going to take our country back, we have to have a plan. So my plan is to bring as many of the frontline generals as possible into this movement to help us fight and let us know what we can actually do to start taking our country back. One of those is is a man I have a tremendous amount of respect for Ryan for me is a powerhouse in the conservative movement. He founded students for Trump. He is an entrepreneur. He is a influencer. He is an absolute dynamic conservative and I'm pleased to have him with us today.
- Ryan Fournier: Thank you so much for having me.
- Raven Harrison: Ryan, it is great to have you here. So tell the viewers who are watching. I know a lot about you, but tell them a little bit about students for Trump and your movement and everything that you've been about and how this came to be.
- Ryan Fournier: Yeah, no. So this is kind of coincidental. I really did not expect at any point in time in in sort of my political career. If you'd call that that we would be at this level, this scale operating day to day and the way we do. When I started this, I kid you not, I think it was in a JC penny store with my mother and grandmother. And this was probably two months after Donald J. Trump came down the golden escalators. And, you know, I was watching one of his sort of speeches. I don't think it was a rally. It was at a university. And some of the stuff that he was saying, you know, really speaking to middle America, not using sort of all of these confusing terminologies to describe something as simple as, you know, tax code, right? He was breaking things down, I think, in a way that why we lost to Obama in the previous two elections.
- And I thought to myself, you know, if you're going to go against Hillary Clinton, who do you want? Right? You want like someone like Obama in a way, somebody that is out of the circle, you know, sort of not really the mainstream typical political president. I mean, Obama wasn't. Neither was Trump. And so I think that that's where I kind of drew the line in the sand. And that's when I, you know, started looking around like who's supporting Donald Trump, like what's his numbers look like? And I didn't see any student groups. So I just created a Twitter account student for Trump. And I tweeted from my perspective about Donald Trump, you know, different thoughts and stuff that he would say during his debates and throughout the rallies he did.
- So it kind of really started there, started social media. And then we went and built out a very, very massive volunteer ground movement. So from that point on to 2019, we merged with Charlie Kirk in Turning Point Action. So we've been, we've been on the front lines for a while.
- Raven Harrison: Fantastic. Were you surprised, Ryan, by the response you got when you sent out that first tweet, were you taking it back at what the response and the support that started growing behind?
- Ryan Fournier: Yeah, I mean, you know, sort of a drip feed, if I were to say anything on it. When you look at December of 2015, you know, sort of where controversies started to surround Donald Trump, people, you know, questioning his ban on, you know, foreign internationals entering the country, questioning immigration. And so there was a lot of, you know, fray in the party, I think, especially with the 17 or so other contenders at the time.
- But what I noticed slowly as time went on is that as Donald Trump got on that debate stage and just eviscerated, you know, the other contenders and was just spitting out facts that were, you know, essentially just, you know, a total 180 on all of the neocon, you know, the war machine, as I call it, sort of everyone who was running then against him. Total retribution on their platform. And I think he nailed it. And I think that's what that's the Trump you need back when you look at 2024. If we're going to beat Biden, if we're going to beat the left, we need to have that same energy.
- Raven Harrison: Correct. And I think Ryan, you and I both agree on this. It's funny how it didn't become controversial until Donald Trump said it. This was apparently the platform that Obama said that he was on in securing our border and controlling illegal immigration. I heard speeches from that from Clinton and Obama. But when Trump said it, the left lost their mind.
- Ryan Fournier: Yeah, no, I mean, you look at the same thing when you look at Obama's foreign policy. The left is totally, you know, sort of going against it in a way, calling it out, saying that it was disastrous talking about U.S. intervention in the Crimea and Ukraine, how we sort of stayed away from that during his years. And that's one thing I agree with. You know, it's not, it's not none of our business and it's still none of our business.
- So that was to me, you know, going back to what you said, one of those major things that you're just starting to see transcend. Now you have sort of this woke left in the neo conservatives, which have left the party already, you know, years ago or recently because of Donald Trump, they have like created sort of this love match. And now you're seeing that being the fuel. I know we're probably going to talk a little bit about Ukraine, but now you're seeing that kind of fuel together being sort of this pro war piece that we're seeing now kind of erupt in the country, especially on social media, Twitter. Really bad for you oppose anything. And you're automatically attacked by this by this sort of blockade of blue checkmarks because you want peace instead of total war and maybe nuclear destruction begets to that. So…
- Raven Harrison: Correct. And I mean, I'm glad that you brought that up. It's important because it is it the things that we're talking about now they have moved the goalpost to what is controversial. What is I mean, even ultra maga and the things that they now want to label us as extremist for saying which was pretty fairly common course several years ago. And let's let's dive into this thing with Ukraine. I know that I've written an op ed piece, but you have strong opinions on that too, but tell them tell the people who are watching Ryan because I really want to get a sense you've you've actually am I correct that you were a White House correspondent for a while. You've had access to the press corps so you've also seen not only the conflict evolving, but the reporting on it and what we hear in from the news in these days it's like night and day.
- Ryan Fournier: Yeah, no, I will say just a correction. No, I was not in the press corps. I don't think I could survive that any day of the week. But the facts on this are pretty pretty straight to me. You know, I think we all remember when Biden said that there will be no Nord Stream pipeline. If Russia crosses over into Ukraine, we've seen the State Department, you know, sort of back up those ideas. And, you know, in the first 48 hours, I was just kind of reading all the news clippings on what was going on what they knew knew the moment when they're you know look to be like sabotage like this was done by you know, bigger countries sort of a first world nation capabilities to pull off such a you know a task of planting underwater TNT in a way that you know you'd be clandestine in your operation and you know there's only a few countries that can do that and you know when you first scrape at the surface I think we were all thinking okay maybe this is Russia, right maybe they want to further destabilize the European economy.
- But then you have on the other hand well, a couple months ago they already shut off the gas line right remember when Germany gas prom shut down the pipeline to Germany so Germany was already being screwed Germany's electricity prices energy prices have skyrocketed since it's gonna be a cold winter.
- Raven Harrison: Correct.
- Ryan Fournier: So, when I think about that I'm like no that that couldn't have been a reason they're already doing it they always had the ability to further destabilize the economy. And then what you kind of have on this other hand it's like why would they do it because I think this year estimated $285 billion estimated what they would have made this year. I guess now that's going to be less because the pipeline is inoperable. But this is their cash cow is the point I'm getting at and everything I kind of looked at that would contradict it it always came back and I was kind of reaffirmed and in my belief that it was not Russia.
- And you kind of look at all every other country wasn't it such a coincidence that you know I think it was like a day or two after this explosion if not the day of where you know Poland comes out and they're talking about the Baltic pipe right you know conveniently just cuts Russia yeah and you know I think the whole thing was a ruse in a way I think you know there's people privy to the information that we're probably never going to know it's like a he said she said blame game right now between Russia and US allies so I don't know where that's going to go all I know is that there is a major benefit here and that is the US because not only now is Germany put in this corner where they can't just bow down to Russia so they can help their people for the dark winner coming out for them they can't do that by doing that they get out of the war.
- No one wants that who wants this war. So what's the alternative energy option the alternative energy options LNG liquefied natural gas, which we are like the major exporter of so that's my theory here I can't put blame just on the US I don't know for certain I don't think anybody does. But I this was most certainly nothing of Russia. This was something of a niche that you know, has a really formidable Navy that has the capabilities to do this will also at the same time being at you know NATO ally. I don't know if we were doing it I would hope to God not I did see reports of black hawks circling sort of the area where this explosion happened like a month or so prior.
- We were doing training operations there apparently with the sixth naval fleet. I hope to God it's not the case because that's escalation that nobody is prepared for you know we're not even taking the front on this entire conflict when it comes to you know diplomacy and going to a peace strategy we're not even in the front line of that discussion we're just kind of going to this maximalist approach with Zalinsky where anytime he asked for something we give it to them. Sorry for going on a diet rant with that but this is something that's been taking up my, my brain length time and
- Raven Harrison: people need to hear this I read I wrote the op ed piece on it because it's one of those yes we're in the he said she said, the problem we have is the one person has acknowledged doing it and that's really scary. So for the illustration for people who are listening is I feel that Biden is the Joker of poker faces. We're going to stand up in a conference and acknowledge something like the pipeline does not happen if they invade and who had the most to gain for from it, who benefits the most from all of this. We know that Russia is a favorite whipping and scapegoat. Not to say they're blameless but they are a favorite whipping of this administration. It's always Russia.
- Okay, global warming it's Russia. This it's Russia. It's Russia. It's always Russia. So I'm glad to hear another perspective on that it was just letting Americans know exactly what we are dealing with in this day and time we can't right now we can't even be on the front lines Ryan because we're still trying to figure out what's true and what's not we can't be able to get any kind of reliable factual consistent information from the news core on what we're looking at what we're seeing in real time and that brings me to let me pick your brain a little bit Ryan about the midterms. What's going on everybody has their theories the red wave this is happening.
- I'm thinking at it being more likely than not, then we will pick up some seats in the house but what does that really mean it to me my perspective is always it doesn't do any good to take the house back if you don't clean it first. But I would like to hear from you. What can what are your predictions what do you see what do you think will be coming on the horizon for the general election.
- Ryan Fournier: Yeah, you know, this is an election that's going to be determined on kitchen table issues. It's really come down to that in this election I think more so than than any in recent history, because people are really suffering like at levels. We haven't seen in years, you know, gas prices are temporarily down right now only because we're draining our strategic oil reserves. Those prices are going to skyrocket January and February you're probably going to be paying $7 and $8 in gas, right electricity prices are going up food prices are still on the rise. Economy is not doing better despite Biden's claims that it is strong as hell. Total laughing moment, but nothing really is going really well for the Democrats. I think that that's the whole message here is that they really have no governing agenda.
- You know, as Jen Psaki said, just a few weeks ago she said if this election is a referendum on Joe Biden, the Dems will lose. And it sure as heck should be, you know, a referendum on Biden. I mean, from the 13 heroes lost in Afghanistan to the crippling debt in this country, economies faltering loss of jobs and wages, any wage growth you saw was replaced by inflation, just totally knocked away. You know, I met a woman not too long ago about a month in the grocery store checkout line, we're talking over, you know, the price of just basic items in the store, and she lost over $40,000 within the span of three months from a 401k over $40,000. And, you know, it's like, yeah, at time, you know, you may get that back, but this lady was near retirement age. She didn't want to work another five to six years, you know, to get her earnings back and then some. And so, you know, you really start to hear sort of the suffering when you go out into the communities. And I think that that's one of the things, especially when you look at the GOP out of the top four categories, number four being health care, we are winning in terms of favorability with who should handle the issue. That's economy, education and schools, and crime.
- We are winning in those areas. When you look at the battleground polls across the country now, when I say this, don't get cocky with these numbers. Don't get, you know, dismayed by some of the polls. The only polls you should be looking at are the battleground polls. Do not look at these national polls or just voter suppression at every single level to keep you or keep a few at least that could win an election to stay home. But we're looking really good. You know, bottom line, we're looking really good. Oh, and the number, by the way, 21% average. We got 21% average above the Democrats in all of the battleground house districts on average. So we're looking really good. Pennsylvania, really good state. Federmans losing ground. Kelly in Alaska is projected to beat Murkowski, which is really good. I think we're about to flip the Nevada gubernatorial seat.
- It looks like we're winning that seat as well. We got really good candidates all across the board. You look at Florida, Annapolna, Luna, we got Myra Flores in Texas, Bohain here in North Carolina. We just have a very, very large, diverse group of candidates, different in many ways than the Democrats. Democrats, not just with race or sort of these radical opinions, but really with just different characters who all love this country and are just fighters for the America First movement, fighters for, you know, putting our country first. So I've never been, you know, for me, more ecstatic to look to see, you know, our people get over the finish line in November because it looks like it's going to happen. But we just can't get too cocky with it. We got to keep working, got to keep fighting.
- Raven Harrison: Okay, I agree with that 100%. I'm not only an America First, I'm a First American. Let that sink in, guys. But I want, I'd like Ryan for you to address specifically, what does the GOP need to do? We know what the gains are. What do we need from the people that are in office right now? What do we need from the voters? I would say to qualify their vote and make sure you know what you're voting for and holding our elected officials accountable for what they're doing with our vote.
- Ryan Fournier: Right, yeah, no. I mean, if I had it my way, I'd be doing paper ballots across the board. But that would be probably a federal decision. And the last thing I want, I think anyone who understands the Constitution is federal government, you know, parlaying in your elections. I don't think that that's necessarily a good thing. But looking at the state level, compared to 2020, the Republican states, the red states, even some of the blue states have done really awesome work with trying to secure these elections, make sure that there's, you know, no little loops, you know, oddity. You know, odd ends where certain things can happen, especially with some of these mail in ballots and, you know, the fraud that we saw with that. I know that that has been a big priority among some of these states.
- But then also another thing too is it's, you know, the only way that we really win these things is by showing up in numbers that they've never seen before. You know, there can be no opportunities for cheating if there's 5000 Republican showing up at one polling station, compared to the, you know, 1500 or so that came throughout the day or Democrat, right? There's no way that you can make this stuff up. And, you know, I think for us, one of the biggest things that we had problems with looking back to 2020, was that yes, for right reasons, people lost trust in the system. But I think that that also for elections ahead, it's kind of caused some issues.
- So everyone needs to get out there, make sure you're involved, make sure you're voting, register to vote if you're not. Help doorknock, help phone bank, like these candidates, a lot of them are still looking for volunteers for the last couple of weeks here. So I mean, if you're able to get involved, you know, do more than social media, then do it. Because, you know, I don't want to wake up on November 9. And I know all of you probably feel the same way on this and think that maybe I could have done something more to help so and so get elected somewhere. I think that if that's the ideology we go into this with, no cockiness, like I said earlier, I think we'll have really good shot here. I really do.
- Raven Harrison: You're absolutely on the money on target, as always, I say this all the time. They're going to cheat Raven, of course they're going to cheat. We have to be bigger than the cheat. Don't just go and vote, take five people with you, head to the polls, do something. If you can't run for office, then support those of us who do. If you can't be there at these rallies, write a check, support knock doors, ring doorbells, do what you have to do. Every single one of us has a role in taking our country back. You want to know what you would have done in 1776? We're getting ready to find out. So everybody report to the line. Nobody wins the war from the backseat. So we've got to get it done. So Ryan, I want to ask you one more pertinent. I would be less than prudent to not ask you your thoughts on student loan forgiveness.
- Ryan Fournier: You know, this is something that the Democrats, you know, historically when you look at how the Democrats run a presidential election, they use the college campus sort of as a piece of a roadmap to getting to the White House, because what they do is they go on these campuses and they lie. They lie strategically about student loan debt, about free health care, all of these things that look really good on paper. But when you put them into actuality, they fall flat on their face every single time in a country like ours. There's no long term benefit for me giving out $10,000 to people under a certain, you know, net income per year. There's no long term benefit from that. There's nothing that you gain from that. Instead, I really love Tom Cotton's plan, Senator Tom Cotton, where 50% of the loan that's taken out by the student, the college becomes a guarantor of, right?
- Raven Harrison: Yes. Yes.
- Ryan Fournier: Payment, repayment of the loan. I believe it was also 20% fine that they can get, if the student doesn't pay back the loan. So basically, at the end of the day, despite all the numbers and all the little pieces to it, it makes it where there's competition within the system, but it also holds the university accountable. I think that this is a long term solution because instead of working on these woke classes, I know at one university, you can get a class on Harry Styles now and a class on Justin Bieber.
- Raven Harrison: Please, why am I just ate? Oh my goodness.
- Ryan Fournier: Yeah, no, it's serious. It's scary. But yeah, so what it would do is basically these universities aren't going to be able to make any, you know, who's going to leave this degree and make a lot of money be able to pay back this loan. So why do we have this degree? It holds the university accountable in many ways for their students' education. Long term, that's a much better solution than, you know, this temporary, let me get your vote sort of ruse at their putting on. But I think at the end of the day, a lot of people are now starting to realize, progressives included, that what he said, he's not going to follow through on because I think that they just amended it not too long ago and now I think less than half of who would have been qualified aren't qualified. So I don't know what they're doing with it. I think it's a big scam.
- I think Tom Cotton's idea is a lot better. I am almost paid off all my student loan debt. So I mean, if I can do it, you know, get a job, put money inside, don't go and buy, you know, a Porsche right after you get out of college, you know, save your money, be responsible. It's part of being, you know, a human being and a contributing member of society. And I think that there's some pride that can be taken on that day that you do pay off your student loan.
- Now, you know, you're a doctor or a lawyer, you know, some field or some, you know, degree where you're making money and you have paid off your student loan. I think that there's some pride to that. And I don't think someone gets to feel that when they just get it paid off and sort of written away like someone else is going to pay for, you know, my future successes at this point. It really is disgraceful.
- Raven Harrison: I agree with you 120%. That's pay off your loans math for anybody who's paying attention, because that's the essence. I always ask the question if you don't have to pay back the loan, do you get to keep the degree? Or are we not allowed to go there on that? But the issue more than anything, and just to be clear, Ryan, we're talking about universities that are sitting on billions of dollars in endowments, correct?
- Ryan Fournier: Yeah, no, I've said this before, I believe Harvard is like at the top of like a 50 plus billion dollar endowment, Columbia University, Yale University, they're all at the top. And I said this right after this was proposed. They have, you know, the equivalency, you know, some of the networks of some third world countries, right? Like these, these are some pretty rich entities here that it's not taxed, totally tax deductible that just sits in these accounts and grows. Why don't they take a portion of that money and pay for their students, you know, education, you know, at the end of the day, that'll never happen because these universities are greedy.
- There's more of an agenda here than just helping out the students really comes down to the indoctrination of the student. You know, what used to be a bastion of debate and discussion I would call a college campus is now like a center for indoctrination. And it's the scariest saddest thing to watch, but it's reality. They should be paying. If they support anything like this, they should be willing to put money in there too that isn't some taxpayer dollars, right? So.
- Raven Harrison: Absolutely. And if you're not willing to pay for your degree, why should I? If your degree is so useless that you can't pay for it and use it, but you think I should do it. Absolutely have a big problem with that and agree with you. Ryan, this is called adulting for those who are paying attention. If you take out the loan, if you're not sure you can pay it back, if you're not sure if your Harry Styles degree is going to be worth what you think it is, then don't do it.
- That's how we that's how we work at good old fashioned common sense. I would like to wrap it by saying, you know, Ryan, I, I love hearing this front line perspective. You are actually walking the walk.

I was raised by literally to Air Force Lieutenant colonels. I was raised by warriors for a time such as this. I'm going to be on the front lines and I am asking the Patriots and the conservatives to get behind me. We can do this. The essence of communism is to break your spirit. It's to make you believe that the government is too big. They're too powerful. They're too all encompassing for us to win. And that is simply not the case. There is nothing you can do when you've got the heart of a lion in 1776.
- These guys were teenagers with a rat attack clothing and hand me down weapons who gave a big face palm to the British army. We can do this. We were made for a time such as this. And I know for me, I am happy and honored to be on the front lines fighting for our country. It is the greatest country in the world and she's worth fighting for. So join me. You can find me on social media at Raven Harrison, the conservative warrior and Raven's radar or go to our website, ravenharison.com. Get involved. Let us hear from you. Let us know the things that you want to address and attack and enjoy watching us take our country back.
