Mormon Mafia: Hawking Bicycles, Bootlegging Root Beer and Stealing Elections

They finally caught on. The cat's out of the bag. The beans have been spilled. Independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin is part of the Mormon Mafia. Yikes.

"Should we . . . can we talk about it, Pat? Can we say this on the air?" Glenn asked Thursday on his radio program.

"Well, I mean, it's out there. We might as well address it," Pat answered.

Fox Business News anchor Lou Dobbs recently tweeted that McMullin, who has a clear path to winning the Mormon-dominated state of Utah, is "nothing but a globalist Romney and Mormon Mafia tool."

So, does that mean free casseroles and lime green Jello for everyone?

Read below or listen to the full segment for answers to these organized questions:

• Are Glenn and Pat part of the Mormon Mafia?

• Are Mormon missionaries really fencing bicycles?

• Will the bicycles be sold in China (aka Jina)?

• Would McMullin convert?

• Is Glenn going to sleep with the fishies?

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:

GLENN: Wow. Can I tell you something? Lou Dobbs -- Lou Dobbs exposed something yesterday that is pretty --

PAT: Finally.

JEFFY: We're not going to talk about it on the air.

GLENN: I don't know. Should we -- can we talk about it, Pat? Can we say this on the air?

PAT: Well, I mean, it's out there. We might as well address it.

GLENN: It's out there?

JEFFY: I don't know.

PAT: Might as well.

STU: Finally people are -- I mean, I've known about it for a long time.

GLENN: I can't believe he had the guts to bring up the Mormon Mafia.

PAT: The Mormon Mafia. People who are dealing in underground tuna noodled casseroles.

GLENN: And bootlegging root beer.

PAT: And bootlegging root beer. Lime green Jello salad.

GLENN: Yeah, that root beer -- and can I tell you something? The fencing of bicycles is out of this world. That's where they really make their money. Those guys in the white shirts, they're stealing those bikes, and they're selling them to China. Jina.

PAT: His deal was that Evan McMullin who has a shot in Utah now --

JEFFY: He does.

PAT: -- he's a big part of the Mormon Mafia.

GLENN: What is the Mormon Mafia?

PAT: You're going to have to ask Evan about that.

STU: Yeah. This is the -- Lou Dobbs says -- someone asked him about Evan McMullin. He said, "Look deeper. He's nothing but a globalist Romney and Mormon Mafia tool, to make America great again."

PAT: Mafia tool.

(laughter)

JEFFY: Think about it.

STU: I like this one: I want him converted. I want his buddies converted. I want his family converted!

(laughter)

GLENN: And I want to pee on their baptismal certificates!

STU: I mean, this is -- again, what these elections do to people is really bizarre.

GLENN: Oh, it's really, really crazy.

STU: It really is. I mean, you know --

GLENN: I heard somebody who was the biggest -- the biggest fan of George W. Bush call him a traitor yesterday. This person was a huge Bush supporter. Now he's a traitor. Now he is a globalist -- I mean, complete conspiracy theory heaven.

PAT: Wow.

(chuckling)

STU: You're going to sleep with the fishes. The only spare bedroom we have actually has an aquarium in it. Hope that's not a problem.

(laughter)

There's so much -- the hashtag Mormon Mafia today is --

PAT: That's funny.

GLENN: You have a Mormon Mafia joke, please. Tweet it.

PAT: Oh, man. And this is in defense of a guy -- you know, who deals in the global market. This is a guy whose businesses, his shirts, his ties, his pants, are made all over the globe. He doesn't even know where they're made, if you watch the Letterman clip. And he doesn't care because his businesses are all global.

GLENN: Well, two years ago, he said that we have to get rid of the borders because it's a borderless world for trade.

PAT: Right. Right.

GLENN: And now he is an antitrade and a nationalist. It's really, really quite bizarre.

PAT: It's really hard to get your head around what's going on in this election. It's like a -- it's a cult.

This was one of the first homesteads in the area in the 1880's and was just begging to be brought back to its original glory — with a touch of modern. When we first purchased the property, it was full of old stuff without any running water, central heat or AC, so needless to say, we had a huge project ahead of us. It took some vision and a whole lot of trust, but the mess we started with seven years ago is now a place we hope the original owners would be proud of.

To restore something like this is really does take a village. It doesn't take much money to make it cozy inside, if like me you are willing to take time and gather things here and there from thrift shops and little antique shops in the middle of nowhere.

But finding the right craftsman is a different story.

Matt Jensen and his assistant Rob did this entire job from sketches I made. Because he built this in his off hours it took just over a year, but so worth the wait. It wasn't easy as it was 18"out of square. He had to build around that as the entire thing we felt would collapse. Matt just reinforced the structure and we love its imperfections.

Here are a few pictures of the process and the transformation from where we started to where we are now:

​How it was

It doesn't look like much yet, but just you wait and see!

By request a photo tour of the restored cabin. I start doing the interior design in earnest tomorrow after the show, but all of the construction guys are now done. So I mopped the floors, washed the sheets, some friends helped by washing the windows. And now the unofficial / official tour.

The Property

The views are absolutely stunning and completely peaceful.

The Hong Kong protesters flocking to the streets in opposition to the Chinese government have a new symbol to display their defiance: the Stars and Stripes. Upset over the looming threat to their freedom, the American flag symbolizes everything they cherish and are fighting to preserve.

But it seems our president isn't returning the love.

Trump recently doubled down on the United States' indifference to the conflict, after initially commenting that whatever happens is between Hong Kong and China alone. But he's wrong — what happens is crucial in spreading the liberal values that America wants to accompany us on the world stage. After all, "America First" doesn't mean merely focusing on our own domestic problems. It means supporting liberal democracy everywhere.

The protests have been raging on the streets since April, when the government of Hong Kong proposed an extradition bill that would have allowed them to send accused criminals to be tried in mainland China. Of course, when dealing with a communist regime, that's a terrifying prospect — and one that threatens the judicial independence of the city. Thankfully, the protesters succeeded in getting Hong Kong's leaders to suspend the bill from consideration. But everyone knew that the bill was a blatant attempt by the Chinese government to encroach on Hong Kong's autonomy. And now Hong Kong's people are demanding full-on democratic reforms to halt any similar moves in the future.

After a generation under the "one country, two systems" policy, the people of Hong Kong are accustomed to much greater political and economic freedom relative to the rest of China. For the protesters, it's about more than a single bill. Resisting Xi Jinping and the Communist Party means the survival of a liberal democracy within distance of China's totalitarian grasp — a goal that should be shared by the United States. Instead, President Trump has retreated to his administration's flawed "America First" mindset.

This is an ideal opportunity for the United States to assert our strength by supporting democratic values abroad. In his inaugural address, Trump said he wanted "friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world" while "understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their interests first." But at what point is respecting sovereignty enabling dictatorships? American interests are shaped by the principles of our founding: political freedom, free markets, and human rights. Conversely, the interests of China's Communist Party are the exact opposite. When these values come into conflict, as they have in Hong Kong, it's our responsibility to take a stand for freedom — even if those who need it aren't within our country's borders.

Of course, that's not a call for military action. Putting pressure on Hong Kong is a matter of rhetoric and positioning — vital tenets of effective diplomacy. When it comes to heavy-handed world powers, it's an approach that can really work. When the Solidarity movement began organizing against communism in Poland, President Reagan openly condemned the Soviet military's imposition of martial law. His administration's support for the pro-democracy movement helped the Polish people gain liberal reforms from the Soviet regime. Similarly, President Trump doesn't need to be overly cautious about retribution from Xi Jinping and the Chinese government. Open, strong support for democracy in Hong Kong not only advances America's governing principles, but also weakens China's brand of authoritarianism.

After creating a commission to study the role of human rights in U.S. foreign policy, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo wrote last month that the principles of our Constitution are central "not only to Americans," but to the rest of the world. He was right — putting "America First" means being the first advocate for freedom across the globe. Nothing shows the strength of our country more than when, in crucial moments of their own history, other nations find inspiration in our flag.

Let's join the people of Hong Kong in their defiance of tyranny.
