GLENN: Let me go to Basil Marceaux.
GLENN: Basil Marceaux. Basil, how are you sir?
BASIL MARCEAUX: Fine, Glenn. I watch you all the time on your news broadcast on FOX.
GLENN: Down, boys.
BASIL MARCEAUX: I watched you last night. You’re trying to separate the difference between republic and democracy there. That was pretty good, except you missed one thing.
PAT: What did he miss?
BASIL MARCEAUX: We take an oath to republic our democracy. So, we have to (inaudible) so, we have to kick them out and we actually say the (inaudible.)
PAT: Good point.
GLENN: Basil, let me ask you. There are a lot of people and I think there are some within arm’s length currently that would question whether or not you’re a serious candidate.
PAT: We’re so serious about Basil, we believe that let’s just get this one out of the way, first of all.
PAT: Shouldn’t we?
STU: Sure, yeah.
PAT: Because I think there’s some concern I don’t think you can tell us, can you, Basil, that — hasn’t it been suggested that maybe you shouldn’t run for President already? Has it been suggested?
BASIL MARCEAUX: Well, they want me to run for governor in California. I have a guy in West Virginia that wants to give me all his property so I can run for Virginia in West Virginia because up there all you have to do is own property to vote.
PAT: There’s a ground swell. A grass roots ground swell.
BASIL MARCEAUX: There’s a website out there that says Marceaux and Palin in 2012.
PAT: That’s what I suggested. So, I guess we’ve got to get this out of the way first. Now, if elected governor of Tennessee, I mean, will you serve for, like, a year and then start running for President of the United States?
STU: Is this just a spring board for your national aspirations?
BASIL MARCEAUX: It takes a lot of signatures to become a candidate for President. If I get enough support from everyone out there to get me signatures, I’ll give it a shot because I don’t think anyone else is going to have guts to fix the country the way I want to fix it, where we all say a pledge to the republic and we actually mean it and we fly the real Betsy Ross flag.
STU: The gold fringe one.
BASIL MARCEAUX: I think it was Roosevelt who said you cannot desecrate our quarries. If we desecrate our quarries, then I say we might as well shoot the eagle.
STU: Yeah. That’s a really good point.
PAT: It’s a lot like Davy Crockett said when he said the declare naked quote.
BASIL MARCEAUX: Yes.
GLENN: You wear a badge around your neck. Were you a police officer or a sheriff — what is that badge that you wear around your neck?
BASIL MARCEAUX: Okay. In fact, I’m the only one in the United States who wears it. Several years ago, as a matter of fact, I started my year, the same year you started your radio show, 2001, when a law enforcement officer put a gun to my face at a stop sign and pulled my friends out of the car and kicked the crap out of him. He was a Navy Seal like Rambo. I’m sure Rambo wouldn’t have liked that much. So, I told the officer then that I was going to look for a law that allowed a marine to arrest anyone who breaks the Constitution. After three years and six months, I found Federal Law 241, the emancipation proclamation proclamation, the Civil Rights Act of 1866, and the (inaudible.)
PAT: And this is why you’re going to ban all traffic stops, right?
BASIL MARCEAUX: No. Actually the traffic stops itself is the second part, where you get out of the car, what are you doing in this part of town, who have you got there, what’s underneath your seat, Hey, what’s that dead body in the trunk.
PAT: I hate it — they ask me that.
GLENN: Basil, shouldn’t we Basil, Basil
BASIL MARCEAUX: Why don’t they just take a minute and go over to the judge and get a warrant and assume they have enough evidence first?
GLENN: I agree with that, but
BASIL MARCEAUX: kick me in the head.
GLENN: I agree with that, but if he can see the dead body in your trunk, he doesn’t need the search warrant, does he?
STU: He won’t see if there’s no traffic stop
BASIL MARCEAUX: It’s the way you interpret our Constitution. The Constitution says if you you have to have look through my window or through my keyhole in my trunk bed, you have to have a warrant to go through my papers
STU: Thank you. See, Glenn?
GLENN: If somebody says what about that dead body in your trunk, isn’t that something maybe if a cop knows there’s a dead body, I don’t want him opening up your trunk untorn, because if you have a dead body in there, it might be a good thing, but I don’t want a cop to be opening up your trunk without a warrant, et cetera, and they can’t do that. You’re right on that, but, I mean, if he says to you while you’re sitting in the car, what’s up with the dead body in your trunk and there is a dead body in the trunk
BASIL MARCEAUX: Well, I just have to say to him I would have to say to him, you can’t look through my keyhole or my window
STU: Yep. I agree with you on that.
PAT: It’s like Melissa Ethridge says, come through my window.
Glenn: Where does the badge come in?
BASIL MARCEAUX: Back to the badge. I found the emancipation proclamation I’m kind of tired right now emancipation proclamation that says the United States government and the military and the Navy to maintain and recognize such person to keep people free from slavery and no act should stop them. And we all know if I’m 4th Recon marine, the best soldier in the world, everybody knows I maintain for life and my oath is for life to protect and defend, but I have no power. I should be able to arrest people who break the Constitution. This was my oath. So, I went looking for the law to see if a marine can arrest Constitutional violators and I came upon (inaudible) 39th Congress (Inaudible) Page 38, 41, and 42. That’s the same law that gave African Americans four eighths of a mule.
GLENN: So, you made the badge. What does the badge say?
BASIL MARCEAUX: It says okay. On the third prong it says if you’re an Army or Navy civilian, you are a great man. You’re immune from all crimes, including murder. You’re above civil law. You’re protected by the military. You can go into any court in the land and say, Hey, Judge, you’re under arrest for breaking the Constitution and when I rule, there is no appeal for you and you should be scared of me because if you if you don’t get off the Bench when I tell you, I have to treat you like a bank robber. That’s why we printed it in our
PAT: That seems to be a lot of power, Basil
STU: Yeah, it is.
BASIL MARCEAUX: But (inaudible) it says that there is when this draw is apprehended by the citizens of the future, the outcry will be just as powerful as it was when the now dominant party invaded our country and ordered republic restored in the future by a great man going to the ballot box
STU: This goes along with Basil’s policies.
PAT: Very small writing.
STU: And he will bring larger badges to Tennessee, if you just elect Basil Marceaux.
Glenn: Good luck today.
BASIL MARCEAUX: Thank you.
