Bad border policy, let’s say, for example – what’s happening at the border is insane. I’m here in Spain right now. I went through a lot of checkpoints to get here. I own this house – but I don’t own this house because I can’t own it. My corporation owns this house because that’s how it works in Spain. There are rules you follow when you’re in different countries. They want to know when you’re leaving. You can’t stay forever. I can’t stay here more than ninety days. There are laws in place for countries to be sovereign and, therefore, to have borders and, therefore, to have a country. If we completely ignore that – like we are right now – we’re creating such a fiscal crisis – and a human crisis.
It’s crazy what’s going on – and I think we’re gonna learn more and more as time goes on about these cartels and what they’re doing to the people who are trying to cross – and how much money they’re making. That’s going to have to be dealt with at one point in time. That reckoning is coming. All of these people are flooding into the United States completely unvetted. I’m all for legal immigration. I mean immigrate to the United States! It’s the greatest country in the world – because of our Constitution and because of the laws that we have, the freedoms that we enjoy and the Bill of Rights – but don’t do it illegally. It’s the wrong way and this current administration is allowing this to happen in a way that’s going to create a gigantic crisis. They have so many things they are doing that are creating crises – which is why I hold onto my real estate and I hold onto my precious metals.
JWK: It doesn’t even seem like ineptitude. It seems like there’s something else going on.
DC: Oh, they’re doing it on purpose. There’s no question. I think they’re gonna try to bring all these people in, they’re gonna try to get them citizenship and then they’re gonna have them vote. (They think) they’re gonna go “Hey! They gave me all this free stuff!” – which they didn’t. First of all, the government doesn’t make money, they make taxes. They take taxes from their citizens who make money. The government doesn’t create anything. They don’t create jobs. They create an atmosphere that’s good for jobs but they don’t create anything. What they’re gonna try to do, I believe, is they’re gonna try to get all of these people who came in illegally and say “We brought you in to make you American citizens. Vote for us!” There’s a limit to how much that can really accomplish and I think we’re hitting that spot pretty soon.
JWK: So, you think the people are ready for a change?
DC: Mm-hmm. I think if you just look at what’s going on right now – even in New York City, a very liberal city (that has proclaimed) “We’re a sanctuary city! We’ll take everybody!”…Well, sorry, Mayor Adams of New York, it’s becoming a problem because Texas has been dealing with this forever and now their bussing everybody in and saying “Look, if you want to be a sanctuary city…then you deal with these folks that are just pouring through the border.”New York City is at a breaking point, as are a lot of sanctuary cities, because it’s unsustainable.
It’s wrong. First of all, Congress has a responsibility to change the immigration law and they should have done that. They should be working on that…but the President has the ability to enforce the existing immigration law. It’s totally on purpose. It’s not a mistake. They’re doing this for what they believe will benefit them politically down the line.
JWK: If you were to jump into politics, do you have a timetable? Could we see you running for senator or something like that during this upcoming cycle?
DC: I don’t know. I just moved out of California. I’m super happy. I’m in Nevada now. No state income tax. I adore that. I’m just getting used to it. My parents live nearby too – so it’s great! I don’t know. My life is pretty wonderful so (would I) serve in politics? Only if I felt completely compelled, like I’ve got to this, I’m called to do it to try and help people. Ultimately, that’s what we’re doing here. If you can make other people’s lives better than I think you’re doing God‘s work and I try and do that. If it means having to serve in the Senate I would make that sacrifice – but it should be a sacrifice. It shouldn’t be an aspiration for people. I don’t think people should aspire to get into politics just so they can rule over others. It should be a calling – and your aspiring to serve your constituents, the people you represent. That what I believe it should be. So, if I do it, that’s why I’m doing it.
JWK: Just briefly, getting back to your work as a spokesperson for Genesis Gold Group, are you going to be doing TV commercials? Will you be the new William Devane?
DC: (laughs) Listen, there’s only one Bill Devane! He’s wonderful! I love him to death. He’s got that message of getting out there and buying precious metals – and there’s a reason for it. It’s because it’s a phenomenal investment. Now, Genesis Gold Group views things a little bit different then some of the other companies because it is biblically-based. So, the idea behind it is service and taking care of people in the right way. I’m not saying that Bill Devane’s gold company or other specific gold companies are not doing it the right way but there are companies out there that take advantage (of people) if they can. Genesis doesn’t do that. Jonathan Rose is a phenomenal guy. I knew him for a long time before I started working with him. We just have very similar values. If you call Genesis Gold Group, you are gonna find people who are very, very helpful, very respectful and they’ll take their time to discuss with you what you’re doing. You know, sometimes you’re just treated like a client and once they get your money it’s “Oh, okay, we’re good!” and there goes any discussions or any caring. That’s not what happens with Genesis Gold Group which is why I’m working with them.
JWK: Anything you’d like to say as we wrap up?
DC: I think the Buffalo Bills are are going to win the Super Bowl this year. I just want to throw it out there. I played for Buffalo. We lost four Super Bowls. We need one! I’m really hoping that the Bulls can pull it off this year.
JWK: Thank you. By the way, I don’t live in Nevada but if you ran in my neck of the woods, I’d vote for you.
DC: I appreciate that. Like I said, I’d be running to serve my constituents.
