Transcript

  • Raven Harrison: Welcome, Patriots, to this episode of Raven’s Radar. We are not going to disappoint. I have a feeling we’re going to have a massive lake effect today. You’re not gonna wanna miss it. If it’s in your sights, it’s on my radar. We’ll be airborne shortly.
  • [Intro Video]
  • Raven Harrison: Welcome, Patriots. We have a dynamic episode for you today. I am super excited to invite into our studios the one, the only, the dynamic, Kari Lake.
  • Kari Lake: Oh, my gosh, it is so good to be here. I found out I was doing a podcast. This is not just your average podcast, people.
  • Raven Harrison: I’m not your average Raven.
  • Kari Lake: She’s not average. She’s exceptional. And this amazing live audience. I didn’t expect this. This is amazing.
  • Raven Harrison: We have a live audience today. So let’s, Patriots, let’s give it up for Kari Lake.
  • [CHEERING APPLAUSE]
  • Kari Lake: You do things big in Texas, don’t you?
  • Raven Harrison: I do. Texas, we’re big, go big or go home or stay here. If you’re already from here, so it’s going to be. But yes, thank you for joining us. We are fresh off of the front lines for Patriots, aren’t we?
  • Kari Lake: We are on the front lines.
  • Raven Harrison: We are on the front lines.
  • Kari Lake: The battle is going and we are all, I mean, did you ever think you’d find yourself in the middle of this, you know, battle to save our country?
  • Raven Harrison: In the number of things I thought, even growing up with both my parents or military colonels, I never thought that this would be my journey and this would be my fight. But you know what? I’m really glad to have been made for a time such as this.
  • Kari Lake: I agree. I absolutely agree. I tell this to people a lot because people will come to me and say, the world is spinning out of control. What’s going on? And I say, no, you got to look at it differently. Thank you, God, for placing us here at this moment. Thank you. I mean, this is one of those moments that’s pivotal. Not just in American history, I think in human history.
  • Raven Harrison: Yes.
  • Kari Lake: And the fact that we’ve been placed here, God doesn’t make mistakes.
  • Raven Harrison: Correct.
  • Kari Lake: And so those moments when you think, I’m not up for this fight, I’m exhausted, go, no, no, no. God doesn’t make mistakes. He put us here for a reason.
  • Raven Harrison: And that’s right. Because we’re getting there, aren’t we? God does not call the qualified. He qualifies who he calls.
  • Kari Lake: That’s right.
  • Raven Harrison: And the person at the top of the mountain didn’t fall there. That’s free advice.
  • Kari Lake: That’s right.
  • Raven Harrison: And I’m telling you, so we get to do this. My bishop tells me, instead of saying I have to do something, say I get to do something.
  • Kari Lake: Yes.
  • Raven Harrison: I get to save my country.
  • Kari Lake: That’s right.
  • Raven Harrison: So that’s what we’re going to do. But yes. So tell people, I know a lot about you, and a lot of us do, because you started in the television. So you were in television when you could actually watch the news and get credible factual news information.
  • Kari Lake: Right.
  • Raven Harrison: What was that like? You started out, I know that you’re born in Illinois, but your career took off from Illinois to Arizona, correct?
  • Kari Lake: I was raised in Iowa, right on the Mississippi River. So I was born in a hospital across the river in Illinois, but I pretty much grew up in Iowa. And when I was in college, I decided I wanted to be a journalist. I thought, what a great opportunity to interview people, talk to people, tell their stories. I like to talk to people. And I love people in general. So I ended up getting a wonderful career in journalism back when it was fair.
  • I mean, I always felt that I was a fair and honest journalist. But during COVID, I’m 30 years into my career, COVID hits. And I start realizing, whoa, there’s something really dark going on here. This is about dividing people, pushing fear, pushing division, pushing isolation upon people, and pushing an agenda that I just wasn’t comfortable with. It’s kind of like I worked my whole life, youngest of nine, took my nose off the grindstone, looked up, and went, what has happened to my industry? What has happened to journalism? It’s dead. And so I made a very difficult decision during COVID. It was just as COVID was ending to walk away from my career.
  • Raven Harrison: And I can’t even imagine. But you actually just threw a little bullet in there, one of nine. So you guys were swimming in money. So you, but America means something different to you when you didn’t start out with the American dream, correct?
  • Kari Lake: Well, I always felt just being born in America. I was living the American dream. I really did. We didn’t have a lot of money. My dad was a high school teacher. He taught history and government back when they really did teach you history and government.
  • Raven Harrison: Come on.
  • Kari Lake: And he was a football coach. So he had got nine kids, eight girls, and one boy. And so we didn’t have a lot.
  • Raven Harrison: That was the Hail Mary, right?
  • Kari Lake: That was the Hail Mary, yes. I was the youngest. So everyone assumes he was waiting to have a boy in there. The boy was in the middle. I was the youngest. And to us, we just were one of the great gifts we were given. We didn’t have a lot of money, but was a work ethic. We learned a good, honest, hard-working work ethic, right? Where you have to work really hard. And that is the greatest gift you can instill upon your children. To this day, I think I was given. It was like a powerball victory to have that kind of work ethic. So I’ve always felt like no matter how bad things get, I can work my way to success. And that’s what I did in my career.
  • And then when I walked away, I didn’t realize that stepping away from my career would be an act of courage that motivated people and that inspired people. And but I covered Arizona for 27 years. So the people of Arizona, they knew me. I mean, we’re friends. I’m in their home every day, three hours a day. And I understood the issues of Arizona. I understood the people. And so when I walked away from my career, the people started reaching out to me by the thousands, saying, oh, my goodness, we’re going to miss you. Thank you for having integrity. And would you please run for office? We need somebody who we trust in our governor’s office. And at first, I thought they must think I’m a glutton for punishment, or they think I’m crazy. Why would I get out of the fake news and this career that has gotten so corrupt and go into the even more corrupt world of politics?
  • But then I realized, well, maybe this is why God gave me that courage to walk away from my job, because this is what I’m supposed to be doing. And now that I look back on it, I really do believe that. Because how hard is it for a regular person to get into politics? It’s really hard. And for me to get in to have the success that we have, to have a movement that we have, that’s pretty amazing. The people came in, they came around us. It wasn’t about me, it was about us, we the people. And we just had an incredible movement that defied all of the odds, defied logic, and it was about taking our government back. And so I believe that God put me here for a reason to do that. And I don’t think he’s done it with us.
  • Raven Harrison: And I think we all believe that, too.
  • Kari Lake: I don’t think he’s.
  • Raven Harrison: We all believe that. Oh, my goodness, yes. Because until you have the calling, nobody knows. I wonder if anybody really knows in that moment that they’re getting ready to make history. I wonder if David knew when he picked up a stone that he was getting ready to make history, literally, figuratively. And that’s what it is. And I want to show, we’re going to illustrate, a lot of you guys know this, but we’re going to illustrate. I want to clip about your coming in to this scene.
  • Kari Lake: OK.
  • [Clip Begins]
  • Donald Trump: So what we have to do is swap them this time. The one thing that really does prevail, and I heard all of your different speakers talking about what to do. We used to like to hold out on Tuesday till Tuesday, and everybody goes in a vote. And then in some cases, you go in a vote, and the machines are all broken. That’s what they do to you. That’s what they did to some very special people. You know that. We had a certain state.
  • Everybody was so proud. Republicans liked to vote on Tuesday. They went in, and a lot of the machines were broken. So they had to stand in line for 10 hours and more. And actually, many of them never got to vote.
  • [Clip Ends]
  • Kari Lake: Yeah. I think I know who he was talking about.
  • Raven Harrison: I think I know who he was talking about. But see, for those of us who do, they said the machines were broken. So I’m going to translate in Bidenese. Cheating.
  • Kari Lake: There you go.
  • Raven Harrison: OK. So that’s because I’m one of those. You know, the skeptical I want to vote on the day. I want to put my ballot in. But before I get to that, I just wanted to build it up for people. But before we get to that, how many of you in the audience knew that Kari Lake was a janitor? I did.
  • Kari Lake: I’ve held many jobs. I’ve held many.
  • Raven Harrison: But you made a comment about that at CPAC, about how rewarding that was. And I’d like you just to briefly share that, because that’s huge.
  • Kari Lake: You know, when you’re a janitor, whatever job you do, I enjoy working. And growing up in a family, we learned a lot of different tasks. And thank goodness I learned how to clean, because I made some good money as a janitor. What I loved about that was that you go in, and you kind of see everything’s in disarray, dirty, and needs to be cleaned up.
  • And it’s so rewarding, because through each step that you make, you see improvement. And I just found it to be incredibly rewarding. I took the job, because I was working at the time at a restaurant. And my boyfriend in college said, oh, I just got a really great job opportunity. There’s an extra opening. Do you want to take it? You’ll make almost twice as much as you’re making now. And I went, yeah. Yeah, of course I do.
  • Raven Harrison: Yes, please.
  • Kari Lake: I was putting myself through college.
  • Raven Harrison: Right.
  • Kari Lake: Had to get up really early in the morning. I was working at a drug treatment center. So there were challenges. I thought it was interesting. I was watching people who had managed to make decisions in their life that were really self-destructive. And I found myself. I mentioned this in my book, too, which I just recently wrote. But I will be telling you a little bit more about that later. But I found myself imagining what led them to that point, where they were in drug treatment. And I would then imagine them having a successful life after that. So because you really couldn’t have interact with them. It was a patient that you’re not supposed to really interact with.
  • So I would imagine, what led this person to this moment? And when they get things turned around and cleaned up, how will their life progress and get better? And I found myself imagining these individual patients who I really didn’t know and imagining a success story for each of them. I think it kind of was my way of praying for them.
  • Raven Harrison: Yes.
  • Kari Lake: Kind of visualizing what their life could look like.
  • Raven Harrison: And humanizing, because these are people that are broken. And I know that God uses greatly those who have been wounded very deeply. I believe that. So it’s an also case anybody missed that, she’s a professional at cleaning houses. We’re going to get into that.
  • Kari Lake: I don’t look at my house now because it’s a mess.
  • Raven Harrison: We’re talking about bigger houses, like white houses.
  • Kari Lake: Oh, my god.
  • Raven Harrison: That need to be. So and we’re going to get.
  • Kari Lake: I am good at cleaning things up. And I’m telling you, the janitorial side of me, the janitor in me, really wants to go in and clean up the swamp. I mean, the swamp.
  • Raven Harrison: Come on.
  • Kari Lake: And Arizona.
  • Raven Harrison: Oh. Yes. Yes. That’s where we were going with it, is we were going to be leading up to that. We’re going to take a quick break. We’re going to come back with more with Kari Lake.
  • [Patriot Mobile spot]
  • Raven Harrison: Welcome, Patriots. We’re back. Did I promise you epic? If I didn’t, I should have, because it’s epic. We have the one and only Kari Lake with us today. I am fangirling, if you guys can’t tell. It’s awesome. But it’s really awesome to give people a front look at what the front line really looks like. Because I think if most people knew what we went through, what the calling is, they wouldn’t want this for anything.
  • Kari Lake: But don’t you want to see politics change where real citizens can get involved?
  • Raven Harrison: Yes.
  • Kari Lake: I guess I was naive when I jumped into this. I thought that that’s how our founding fathers set it up, that citizens would say, you know what, I want to go and serve the people.
  • Raven Harrison: Yes.
  • Kari Lake: I want to represent the people. And unfortunately, politics has become such a swamp. And thank god for President Trump for really exposing that. That is hard. It’s hard to get in. I was fortunate that I had, when I stepped into politics, I had 85% name ID from working 30 uh 27 years in Arizona covering the news. So I didn’t have to go spend tens of millions of dollars getting my name out.
  • Raven Harrison: Yes.
  • Kari Lake: And I had a relationship. I have a relationship with the people. So I was able to do it in a way that was very unconventional. I didn’t have to hire these DC consultants to come in.
  • Raven Harrison: Swamp rats.
  • Kari Lake: Thank you. You said it. That’s a perfect way to describe them.
  • Raven Harrison: Oh, yeah.
  • Kari Lake: And but I’ll tell you what, when you say, no, I’m not going to hire these consultants. Guess what happens? The consultants turn on you. They come hard. They come for you. And they took, here I’ve lived a exemplary life. I had an illustrious career.
  • Raven Harrison: Yes.
  • Kari Lake: Tried to treat people well, always tried to be fair and honest as a journalist. And they said, she must be stopped. She must be stopped. And they turned tens of millions of dollars in attack ads on me.
  • Raven Harrison: Yes.
  • Kari Lake: I used to say when I was a news anchor, I would be sitting on the set with my co-anchor. And of course, we had to sit through all of the political ads. This is one of the bad parts about being in the news. You have to sit through and watch all of that. At home, you can just mute it. And we would turn to each other and say, who in their right mind would ever get into politics? And then I found myself in politics.
  • Raven Harrison: Exactly.
  • Kari Lake: And really at the receiving end of some of those nasty, nasty attack ads. And it did. I mean, it brought down my, I started in politics with almost perfect favorability. People, they really liked me because they knew they could trust me. And then after, I think we ended up with $50 million in attack ads more than ever spent before. That’s how dangerous a fed up mom is to the political system. They’re like, we must stop this woman. My negatives did go up. And now they call you every name in the book. They call you racist. They call you Nazi. They call you in all the crazy stuff.
  • Raven Harrison: White supremacist. I get that one a lot.
  • Kari Lake: And they can just lie about you.
  • Raven Harrison: Yes.
  • Kari Lake: I just didn’t even watch the ads. It was just painful. And I was also too busy to sit home and watch the ads.
  • Raven Harrison: Thank goodness for that. And you are right. It’s because I had the same thing. I ran for Congress in this district. And I’m telling you, my Pollyanna showed up with my hopes and my dreams. And I’m ready to serve the people. And oh, my goodness.
  • Kari Lake: What a noble thing to do, right?
  • Raven Harrison: Gracious. Yes. Both my parents are retired Air Force Colonels. Bled for this country.
  • Kari Lake: Yes.
  • Raven Harrison: We lived in communism. People like Agnes and others who have lived. And we know it’s not just them having guns and you not. It’s a total loss of freedom and dehumanizing. You will do this. You will live here. You will not do this. And people aren’t ready for that.
  • Kari Lake: I feel like we’re living in communism right now.
  • Raven Harrison: We are.
  • Kari Lake: Anyone? I mean, this isn’t. It’s a very slippery slope where we’re headed. And I feel like when you hit the edge of the cliff, it’s not a slight decline. It is like boom. And we’re just on the verge of that.
  • Raven Harrison: It is a rapid descent, isn’t it?
  • Kari Lake: Right.
  • Raven Harrison: And so speaking of that, so we’re going now. You’ve come out of your cushy idea. And we know that that’s, to me, a hard part to hear people. They can just literally make up anything. I have heard you’re a Democrat plant. I’ve heard all kinds of nonsense. And it’s like you have no response. You just have to hope that voters and patriots know better than to listen. I don’t listen to a lot of this mainstream for the same reason. I don’t drink out of the toilet. OK.
  • Kari Lake: That is a great advice.
  • Raven Harrison: So I’m telling you, you have to be careful when I get going because I don’t have breaks. But so take us now. You’ve decided to run. So now you’ve gotten your calling. And you’re jumping in to the governor’s seat because Arizona is your home. It’s your love now. And you want to represent the people. The campaign, we see the attack ads. And a lot of us patriots watched this in real time. We were cheering, come on, Kari.
  • But we’re watching this. And what was it like for you in the campaign? You’re out there. You’re getting around the voters. They love you. But the establishment’s coming on. What was the atmosphere like in the campaign for you?
  • Kari Lake: You mentioned David when you picked up the rock. He made history. I really did feel it was a David versus Goliath campaign. And we slayed the giant, which was great. What was so cool about it, and I’m kind of getting like the little tinglies right now thinking about it, was when I first jumped into it, was immediately seeing the people go, we’re excited about this.
  • Raven Harrison: Yes.
  • Kari Lake: And I covered politics for 30 years, as my job. And to see people, young people getting excited, I announced, and within 24 hours, somebody sent me a picture. There was a roadside, I call them roadside rallies, the things we would see with President Trump, where people just are so proud of their country and they’re so excited about President Trump because he’s actually working for the people, that they would go and wave flags on the side of the road. I mean, when did we ever see that before? So what are these roadside rallies? There was a young woman, I’m guessing 18, 20 years old, and she’s holding. I haven’t even been a candidate for 12 hours.
  • She’s holding a homemade sign, Kari Lake for governor. And it was, you know, obviously had to spend time coloring this and putting it together. And I thought, wow, that’s kind of special. That’s a homemade sign. A young person, not the typical people involved in politics. No offense to them. I love them. I love the people who’ve been really active for 50 years. But this was a 20-year-old who’s really excited. And that was just the tip of the iceberg. We brought in the most amazing, big tent of Republicans. I call them conservatives. I call them America first. They were young people from all walks of life, all different backgrounds, tired of what had been happening today. Our whole campaign was very much about younger people. Because the students, think about what we were doing when we were 18 and our 20s. I mean, I didn’t want to tell you what I was doing.
  • Raven Harrison: Yeah, no, thanks. Yeah.
  • Kari Lake: And we were having fun. And they weren’t allowed that because of bad governance, bad representation. Our governors locked us down. Our governors forced these kids to wear masks. They forced them into the dorm rooms. They forced them away from interacting with other young people, having those good moments, those good times. They took away prom. They took away their scholarship opportunities because they shut down athletics.
  • It is, as a mother, I mean, I can feel my blood pressure going up. I’m still so angry what they did to our kids. And those kids recognized who did it. And that’s why they came in to the fold with us. And so I was excited right away. We would go to a room and they would say, we’re going to have probably 40 people there. They would call us and they would say, we have to switch to the auditorium. We have 240 people. And this was how it went throughout the entire campaign. If you’d normally get 20, we had 100. If you’d normally get 50, we had 300. People just started coming in because I was speaking their language.
  • Raven Harrison: That’s right.
  • Kari Lake: I know I’m not a politician. I didn’t have consultants telling me what to say. I was speaking from a mother’s point of view who loves Arizona, who’s lived there for a long time. Our problems are not impossible to solve if we have common sense solutions. And that’s what I learned from President Trump. He went in. He had very little support.
  • Raven Harrison: That’s right.
  • Kari Lake: He went into DC. I mean, that guy has, I’m not supposed to say balls. That guy has a spine.
  • Raven Harrison: Are we allowed to say Hutzpah?
  • Kari Lake: Hutzpah.
  • Raven Harrison: Yeah, there we go.
  • Kari Lake: That’s right.
  • Raven Harrison: Rockstar.
  • Kari Lake: Can you imagine what that took? You know, we entered politics later. He crawled so we could run.
  • Raven Harrison: Correct.
  • Kari Lake: He goes into DC, and he’s getting attacked for seven, eight years straight. He’s still getting attacked. The media never does him a favor. They never do. They attack everything he does. Even now, when he gets a friendly interview, Sean Hannity interviewed him, it was still full of trying to make him be on the defensive, asking him questions and about stuff that’s not even true. He never gets a break in the media.
  • Raven Harrison: He doesn’t.
  • Kari Lake: And now he’s running up against somebody who has gotten just one break after the next from the media. So this new guy comes in, smelling sweet, but really has not had the Trump treatment. Anybody who can endure what Trump endured, I want sitting in the White House. I want going up against these people who want to bring America down, because that man is strong.
  • Raven Harrison: That’s right.
  • Kari Lake: And we had to deal with that. I knew we were onto something. I knew that we had poked the giant when we started getting attacked in the media immediately from day one. Here I worked in the media for 30 years. I never got one break from the media. There was a study that came out that said 87% of news stories about the people running in that last election, if they were Republican, 87% of the news stories were negative.
  • Raven Harrison: If not higher.
  • Kari Lake: And then they said, there’s one candidate who, in our survey, had 100% negative coverage. And it was me. 100% negative coverage. That’s because when you’re an America first candidate, you’re dangerous. And they thought they got rid of Trump. And then they went, oh my gosh, we’ve now got Trump in heels.
  • Raven Harrison: Come on.
  • Kari Lake: We’ve got to stop him. We’ve got to stop him.
  • Raven Harrison: Yes.
  • Kari Lake: They did everything they could.
  • Raven Harrison: Yes. And his front line general, because I mean, I am not a Trump fan. I am THE Trump, fan. Rockstar, boss mode, when he turned that plane around and said, Pelosi and her married band of communists back for another round of alcohol somewhere else. So yes, but that’s what we need. On the playground, when you’re getting picked on, you want that tough kid who’s going to really straighten things out. And people forget that. But we’re going to get delved now into the essence. We’re going to get the geography of the swamp. We first, we’ve got to take a quick break. And we’ll be right back with more Kari Lake.
  • [Patriot Mobile spot]
  • Raven Harrison: Welcome back, patriots. We’re back here. And are we enjoying our day on the lake? I couldn’t resist. But this is awesome. So take us through real quick, because this was a heartbreak. A lot of us watched in real time. First, let me run the clip.
  • [Clip Begins]
  • Kari Lake: All of our complaints were important. But this one is, to me, the smoking gun. This is how we get this glut of mail-in ballots with phony signatures to sham the whole signature verification procedure. They’re not following the procedures. And they’re allowing literally tens of thousands. Over a hundred, we projected more than 140,000 bogus ballots got rushed through in this signature verification portion of our elections. And we have three whistleblowers who came forward attesting to that, talking about what a sham operation it is, how literally scribbles and no signatures at all were being passed through.
  • They were flagging and denying 10 to 15,000 signatures a day, these workers at Maricopa County saying, these things don’t match at all. And as they moved it up the process, somebody was just sending those through anyway. And this is absolutely huge. I believe that when Arizona voters, and frankly, when American citizens see how corrupt and what a joke this process is, they may say, we don’t want mail-in ballots. There’s only one security feature for mail-in ballots.
  • And that is the signature on the outside of that envelope. And if those signatures aren’t being matched, if the signatures are completely fraudulent and they’re being counted, that makes my vote watered down and your vote watered down and the good people of Arizona. Even those counties where they are following procedures, when Maricopa County is running these lawless elections like this, those other counties get watered down from their legal vote.
  • [Clip Ends]
  • Raven Harrison: That is, I mean, it is, it’s really hard to watch that. It is hard to watch that. Tell us briefly, so you’re doing this. You’re running. And this is what your phone is blowing up with.
  • Kari Lake: So, well, our movement was so massive, is so massive, that they were freaked out. They tried the 50 million in attack ads. It didn’t stop us. I mean, by the end of our campaign, we were drawing thousands of people for rallies. It reminds me a lot of somebody else we know, right? Except on an Arizona scale. And they went, oh my gosh, how do we stop this woman? They wrote about two weeks before the election.
  • Raven Harrison: Spoiler, you can’t.
  • Kari Lake: So two weeks before the election, there was a headline that read, there was dangerous politician in America.
  • Raven Harrison: I read that.
  • Kari Lake: I scrolled down. I thought it was going to be president Trump. And it was me, a middle-aged mom from Arizona. They’re so worried about we, the people, that they said, we’ve got to stop her by any means necessary. And they realized that election day when our army of supporters showed up, they said, holy crap, we’ve got to stop her. And they sabotaged election day in Arizona. Election day hit. They knew 75% of the people showing up were voting for me. And immediately at 6 AM, the machines weren’t working. They intentionally printed the wrong image on the ballot. Only on election day. We vote for a month in Arizona, by the way.
  • Raven Harrison: So it would be rejected. The image would make the ballot be rejected. And the ones in, typically, because they know that Republicans wait today up to vote. So the ones that were in those districts were failing all over the place.
  • Kari Lake: 60% of our polling locations were inoperable, not working. The machines didn’t work. They were printing the wrong ballots. And guess where those 60% pretty much lie? It was in Republican areas. So this was an intentional sabotage of election day. That’s the only way they could stop it. And it’s really, it’s disgusting. And they thought that I would walk away, crawl away, and disappear into the good night. And no, no, no. They messed with the wrong individual. Because we got to fight this. We got to fight it. Raven, and you know this, I’m talking to a fighter here. If we don’t stand up at this moment, how many more elections do we allow them to steal?
  • They’ve been rigging elections for a long time. I think we know that. But if we don’t stand up right now and say, no, I will fight this until my last breath. I want reformed elections, fair elections. If this happened to my opponent, and they did this to my opponent, and it was Democrat voters who were disenfranchised, I wouldn’t be OK with that. Now, I’ve got some bad news for you. We know the Democrats do what they do. They bring in the ballots and push the mail-in ballots, when they’re not even probably legitimate mail-in ballots. But the people running Maricopa County were Republicans. They were Rhino-Republicans.
  • This election was stolen by Rhino-Republicans. The two men who ran our elections, guess what they were doing on the side? They ran a super PAC, raising tens of thousands of dollars to stop one candidate, me, while they’re running the election, and I’m at the top of the ballot.
  • Raven Harrison: And I want to hit on that, Kari. That is it right there, Patriots, is two things I want to say about that. As I say this, I used to say this on the campaign trail, and I say it all the time. It’s not the Democrats that are most dangerous to her. They’re a known quantity.
  • Kari Lake: Yeah.
  • Raven Harrison: You OK? It is the ones who worship with us, claim to espouse our values, and claim to stand for our principles who are selling us out that are the most dangerous people we have. And let’s just, while we’re on that, who gets to run their own election? That is communism. How does she get to run her own election? The person who certifies election is running against you?
  • Kari Lake: Well, that’s true.
  • Raven Harrison: Are you kidding?
  • Kari Lake: So my opponent runs the state elections, and then the two guys running Maricopa County, which comprised of 64% of the population. So almost everybody lives in Maricopa County. They’re the ones running a super PAC against me. I mean, conflict of interest, corruption that is so deep. The swamp is, I know it’s a desert, but we’ve got a swamp in Arizona.
  • Raven Harrison: You do. And that’s the swamp. The sewer that it drains into is the capital.
  • Kari Lake: That’s right. And we have 15 counties in Arizona. Maricopa County is a mega, it’s also a MAGA county, but it’s a mega county. And so if they steal Maricopa County, the whole state is stolen.
  • Raven Harrison: And that’s what we’re saying.
  • Kari Lake: And I’m fighting this for every Arizona and every county, because I’m telling you, people come up to me, I can’t walk 10 feet without someone saying, thank you for fighting this. It’s about time somebody fights this. Thank you for not giving up. And thank goodness we didn’t. We took this to the courts. We got a judge who ruled against us. We took it to the appellate court. They said no. They kept switching our judges in the appellate court. I thought that was interesting. I still don’t know why. And then we get to the Supreme Court.
  • Raven Harrison: They fall in love with you and they have to switch judge to somebody.
  • Kari Lake: No, I don’t know. I don’t think they fall in love. I think I am my suspicions, but I won’t go into that right now. So then it gets to the Supreme Court. And I think you probably heard last week.
  • Raven Harrison: Yes.
  • Kari Lake: They’re allowing us to now take a look at this signature verification. I think this is the smoking gun.
  • Raven Harrison: It is. Come on, guys.
  • Kari Lake: And these mail-in ballots. I really do.
  • Raven Harrison: This is, that’s great.
  • Kari Lake: And we had three whistleblowers. We have more whistleblowers coming out of the woodwork. If our judges won’t stand up and do the right thing, the whistleblowers are coming forward. And that’s true. That’s true.
  • Raven Harrison: That is the moral of the story. Politicians corrupt rhinos sell out. If you’re not going to do your job, we the people will do it for you.
  • Kari Lake: Yes.
  • Raven Harrison: We’re not, what is it they’re saying, that we’re no longer trying to accept the things we cannot change. We’re changing the things we can’t accept. And that starts with you fighting because you are, and this is what I want, our patriots and ours listener at home, they ask me all the time, I always say verbs in the sentences, don’t tell me what’s wrong. Tell me what you’re going to do about it. And Kari, you’re still fighting. So for the ones who are wondering, well, where does this stand? What’s happening? What are we doing? What are we doing?
  • Kari Lake: OK, well, here’s what we can do. And it’s so simple. It’s so simple. We have something called the First Amendment. And we’re afraid to use it right now. I’m a loudmouth. I mean, we’re loudmouths. We’re speaking. I’ve lost my, I don’t want to say lost my reputation. I’ve been canceled. I’ve been called names. And I just don’t care. Call me whatever you want.
  • Raven Harrison: Amen.
  • Kari Lake: Call me an election denier. What I’m for is reforming our elections so that every person’s vote counts.
  • Raven Harrison: Yes.
  • Kari Lake: Legal vote. I want the legal vote. So I think we’re all there. And so we need to, it’s real simple, start talking about our elections. The one thing you can’t talk about in this country is elections. When you see corruption, they call you names. They try to make a test taboo right now. And we need to speak up and talk about it. And they don’t want us talking about our elections. They really don’t want. That tells me that there’s so much corruption there.
  • They’re afraid that if we do reform our elections, our politics will never look the same. We will get citizens in there who want to bring common sense policies like secure the border, restore law and order, teach our kids our trade scale, vocational training so they can get out of high school and actually be prepared for the real world. These are things that moms want and dads want. And we keep going, why do we get these losers in DC? It’s because our elections are rigged and stolen. We’re not voting for it. I even believe in San Francisco is messed up, is that places?
  • Raven Harrison: Yes.
  • Kari Lake: I don’t believe they’re voting for Nancy Pelosi. Our elections are rigged and horrible in California. And they want to bring that type of election to every single state, including Texas.
  • Raven Harrison: Well, they’re not on my watch.
  • Kari Lake: Someone just said they are bringing them here.
  • Raven Harrison: Well, they are. But we have to be bigger than the cheat.
  • Kari Lake: So we got to speak out about it and say, no, we want to talk about elections. We want to talk about election reform. We need to call our lawmakers. Call them all. Become their pen pal. Write them. Say, the number one issue in our country, I believe, on the border was my issue. Then I have the most bold, aggressive approach to securing that border. And we don’t need Joe Biden to do it. Each governor can secure the border in their state. If they’ve got the backbone spine to do it, thank you. I almost said it again.
  • Raven Harrison: Correct.
  • Kari Lake: It’s called the Constitution, Article 1, Section 10. You’ve got the right to protect your citizens.
  • Raven Harrison: From an invasion.
  • Kari Lake: Yes. But we can’t ever get to that point if we don’t have secure elections.
  • Raven Harrison: That’s right.
  • Kari Lake: And so that’s where we have to push it. I believe it’s the issue of our time. I really do. And once we get honest elections, then we will see all of the problems being solved with common sense solutions.
  • Raven Harrison: It is. And I want to roll this clip. The common sense, something you said in here, Ziggy, can we roll?
  • [Clip Begins]
  • Kari Lake: So it’s going to take a lot. It’s not going to be easy. They’re going to slander us. They’re going to write nasty articles about us. They’re going to attack us on social media. I’ve frankly gotten to the point when it comes to my inner circle of friends. If you haven’t been attacked, had nasty articles written about you, if you haven’t lost business, been canceled, been had the left go after you in the most crazy way, then I don’t even really want you to be my close friend.
  • I just want strong people, right? That means this whole room could be my friend, because we’ve all been there. So it’s going to take everything we’ve got, but we do have to get together and do this. Because when we do come together and say, we’re not going to stop fighting, we are truly unstoppable.
  • [Clip Ends]
  • Kari Lake: It’s true.
  • Raven Harrison: Well, if that’s the criteria, then we’re besties. How about getting hit by a car?
  • Kari Lake: That’s how bad politics is. I didn’t talk about this very often. I did on the campaign trail. Our tires were slashed. We had screws drilled into our tires. Tell it. It got to the point where we had to have someone watch our car. While we would go in and do a campaign of it. And I joked at the end when Hillary Clinton started seeing Obama came and was a bad mouth in me and Eric Holder.
  • Raven Harrison: Well, that’s an honor.
  • Kari Lake: Yeah, it was an honor. I’m living rent-free in their mind. And then when Hillary Clinton started talking about me, that’s when I got nervous. I’m going to be honest. I said, OK, the brakes on our car work. I’m in good health. My heart works. If anything happens to me,
  • Raven Harrison: I didn’t do it.
  • Kari Lake: I did. Yeah, exactly.
  • Raven Harrison: That’s right. You guys heard it. She didn’t kill herself.
  • Kari Lake: And Jeffrey Epstein didn’t hang himself.
  • Raven Harrison: Exactly. It’s that same thing he has in common with my Christmas decorations. Neither hung themselves.
  • Kari Lake: So it’s dangerous. We’re in a dangerous time right now. And it’s going to take all of us to step up. But I know that when my life does come to an end, and I hope it’s when I’m much older, that I will know that I fought as hard as I could for our country. And I think we’re all in that right now. We’re willing to stand up because I’m not willing to look into my children’s eyes and say, hey, I had a good life. I enjoyed America for what it was. And good luck with communism. I’m just not willing to do that.
  • Raven Harrison: That’s right. Neither are the rest of our patriots in a way.
  • Kari Lake: And we’re making some. We’re getting some victories.
  • Raven Harrison: Yes.
  • Kari Lake: They’re not as big as we want. But I will tell you this. All of the polling showed we were going to win in a landslide. Everyone in America knows that we really won and that the woman sitting in our governor’s office is a fraud. Even she knows it.
  • Raven Harrison: Yes.
  • Kari Lake: Even she knows it. We’re making victories. And had we just won this election outright in a landslide and everything went our way, we would not have woken up the millions of people who’ve woken up since election day. Now we know how they cheated, who they are, what the crimes were. And we are going to expose each and every one of these rats, each and every one. Yes, and I would.
  • Raven Harrison: That’s the essence of it. Because the spoiler alert, God wins. He didn’t say all things were going to be easy. He said all things were possible.
  • Kari Lake: That’s true.
  • Raven Harrison: That’s what we.
  • Kari Lake: And we pray for. I mean, what I think our movement was about and why you’re all here is we want to root out corruption, get our country back, get our liberties back. That’s what we pray for. Are we getting that? I think we are. Then we find and we go, but God, you didn’t give us that decisive victory on election day like we hoped. What God said, well, wait, is that what you want? You want a judge to rule in your favor, or do you want to root out corruption and get your liberties back? God’s following that process in order to get us.
  • Raven Harrison: In his time.
  • Kari Lake: In order to expose everything that needs to be exposed. And unfortunately, it’s not moving as fast as we want, especially us moms who are used to getting stuff done. Come on, we got to get stuff done.
  • Raven Harrison: Yes.
  • Kari Lake: This is part of getting to where we’re rooting out corruption. You got to find it first. You got to see it with your own eyes, and you have to fight it. And that’s where we are.
  • Raven Harrison: And I’m loving that we’re doing that. We have the best fighter in you to do that. I tell people what comes on my heart is, God didn’t move the Red Sea. He parted it so that we could pass through. And that’s how the mountain.
  • Kari Lake: And that same God is with us today. So we forget that, right? We’re praying to God, and we’re thinking it’s a modern day God. It’s a God of all time.
  • Raven Harrison: And he’s going, I got this. I told you, be a good cheer for I have won the victory. Relax, people, we got this. So we’re doing it. But, Kari, it’s been an amazing. We’re going to turn it over to a different segment. But before we want to give you a token, so you are in Texas right now. So we are officially making you a yellow rose.
  • Kari Lake: Oh, my goodness. Oh, thank you so much. Beautiful.
  • Raven Harrison: So we have to Texanize you.
  • Kari Lake: I feel like I won a pageant or something.
  • Raven Harrison: You did. OK. Can we all agree that she’s won the pageant?
  • Kari Lake: Amazing. Oh, my gosh. Thank you. That’s beautiful.
  • Raven Harrison: I’m going to step in here. So we are going to. So we wanted to give you this as a token. We’re going to take a quick break. And then we’re going to come back and wrap up with the one and only Kari Lake right after this.
  • [Patriot Mobile spot]
  • Raven Harrison: Welcome back, patriots. I hope you have enjoyed having a little time with the one and only Kari Lake. It’s been amazing to get an insight of what it is. We’re all cheering for you, but it’s amazing to be able to talk to you and see how the fight. So patriots, this is why we do it. This is why we don’t give up. She’s not giving up. We’re not giving up. So we wanted to give you a token. So under the seats, you each have a number. So if you mind looking under your number, and then we are going to pull. Miss Lake has pulled a number.
  • Kari Lake: Got it right here.
  • Raven Harrison: Okay. So let’s drumroll. And what’s the number that has been pulled?
  • Kari Lake: 13.
  • Audience Member: Woo! Yeah!
  • Raven Harrison: So we are going to. So could you bring, we’re going to bring out, this is the gift. We’re going to have one sent to you.
  • Kari Lake: Oh, this is hilarious.
  • Raven Harrison: And I want you to show what we get. We’re giving away what the winner gets.
  • Kari Lake: Oh my goodness. That’s funny. That’s funny. Yeah. Hopefully, someday. We’re looking to. We’re looking to the future here. That’s hilarious. Very funny.
  • Raven Harrison: She’s still rethinking that simple podcast thing. Here we go. But so that is our, so that is that, but we’re going to open it up real quick. I think we have a word from our sponsor.
  • Steven Ziadie: Yeah. Hello. Hello. So, patient mobile, we are so excited to be here today. You know, for those of you that don’t know, Patriot Mobile, we are the only Judeo-Christian conservative wireless cell phone company, but we’re not just a wireless cell phone company. We have great service on all three network towers.
  • Check us out. We’re about a mission and we are fighting for our God, our constitutional God given rights to freedom. And that’s what we, that’s what keeps all of us at Patriot Mobile fighting every day. We appreciate what you’re doing. Raven, we’re so excited to be partnered with you now. And by the way, for those of you, we have over here some gifts and this, you can support Raven by just going to patriotmobile.com/raven using the promo code and sign up for Patriot Mobile. But again, we are so excited to be a part of this. Thank you so much.
  • Raven Harrison: Thank you. I love you. Love patient mobile. Patriots always, always, always both with your wallet.
  • Kari Lake: Amen.
  • Raven Harrison: Okay.
  • Kari Lake: And support the companies that are anti-American.
  • Raven Harrison: Exactly.
  • Kari Lake: Against us and against our kids.
  • Raven Harrison: And so what I want to tell you guys is if you can’t be on the front lines, support those of us who are. So just one quick comment from our best dressed.
  • Audience Member: Oh my goodness. Kari Lake. Thank you so much for standing up and fighting. I pray that a lot of conservative will actually take what you have done everywhere. Our problem is though, we have a lot of Republicans that are not willing to fight, but that’s not you. And thank you for that. Thank you.
  • Kari Lake: We do love your team. Thank you so much. Sadly, you know, we’ve seen people who give in every time. Every time there’s a battle that needs to be fought.
  • Raven Harrison: They cave.
  • Kari Lake: They cave. Oh, let’s come to the middle. Some things we can’t come to the middle on. You know, sometimes you can come to the middle. But a lot of these big issues you can’t. Like, I’m not willing to come to the middle when it comes to some of this transgender stuff being pushed to school. Where’s the middle on that?
  • Raven Harrison: There is no middle.
  • Kari Lake: Where’s the middle on the border with it wide open with fentanyl pouring across. There’s no coming to the middle on some of this stuff. And you know, one of the things they’ve been lying about with our campaign was that, oh, she didn’t bring the establishment and she didn’t bring the independence and we won the independence. And you know what, I did work and brought a lot of the establishment and they did come over.
  • Unfortunately, there were two or three Republicans who didn’t come my way and they’re the ones running the elections. And they never came our way because they wanted to rig the elections to stop me because I am we the people. I represent we the people. And we are so dangerous to them. And that’s why my one thing I want to say is give me some verbs. What are some of the action verbs we can do? We have to stay in the game. People say to me, why would I vote again?
  • We have to vote again, even in the rig system. That’s what they want. And in the last 10 years, people have started getting involved in politics. People who never got involved got involved in politics. And they keep stealing our elections, hoping we’ll toss our hands in the air and say, I give up. I’m not doing this anymore.
  • Raven Harrison: No.
  • Kari Lake: Then they win. We have to keep voting. We have to vote in droves. We have to show up and vote even in the rig system.
  • Raven Harrison: It’d be bigger than a cheat.
  • Kari Lake: We were so big that look how blatant and brazen they had to cheat. They had to do it right in front of our eyes where we knew it. It’s like the machines don’t work. The ballots are printed wrong. The lines are five hours long. People are walking away. They had to cheat so big that now we know who cheated, how they cheated, and where the crime was. And now we’re going after that crime. And I’m not going to stop until, as I said, every one of these people is held accountable. And I want to see, frankly, some people behind bars.
  • Raven Harrison: Perp walk. We want to see the perp walk. And to close on that thought, Patriots, just remember, like my parents bled for it, people died for your right to vote. Don’t let them take that. You only get to vote into communism once. And we don’t compromise with communists where mama bears we are.
  • Kari Lake: And this next election is going to be everything. It really is.
  • Raven Harrison: It is everything. So get out there. Republicans who don’t vote elect Democrats. So everybody get out there. Vote. Be bigger than the cheat. And for your children and your company and for Kari Lake
  • Kari Lake: and call out these unipotty swarm creatures. Don’t let them. Don’t let them have the R behind their name. If they’re going to end up stabbing us in the back and in the front. We need some true pro-American, America first people running. And that’s who I’m supporting.
  • Raven Harrison: Well, I’m telling you, because I’m not only America first, I’m a first American. Did you guys get that? Native Americans reference. It’s awesome. But Kari, thank you for being here. Thank you for rallying the Patriots. Thank you for being the frontline fighter that these biblical times warned us we were going to be coming to. And thank you to our audience for being here.
  • Kari Lake: Thank you.
  • Raven Harrison: Thank you for joining us for this Raven’s radar. If you want to hear more, we’re going to have this on our social media. We can have more follow the Kari Lake. It is theKariLake on Facebook. It’s theKariLake everywhere else. It’s just Kari Lake.

  • Raven Harrison: We’ll see you next time. Patriots on Raven’s radar.
