Speaking to Fox News Digital, former NFL star and Super Bowl winner Jim McMahon spoke about the importance of fair banking for all sectors of the American economy and about the utter disaster at the southern border, saying that the obvious first step is to close the border and shut down illegal immigration. The fair banking about which former QB McMahon is concerned is banking for the cannabis industry.
As background, Mr. McMahon and former offensive lineman Kyle Turnery helped co-found a cannabis brand called Revenant. They aim to use their media position to raise awareness about the SAFER Banking Act, what they see as a major problem in America, and advocate for the cannabis industry. The SAFER Banking Act would, if passed, create “protections for federally regulated financial institutions that serve state-sanctioned marijuana businesses.”
Speaking about the main issues they advocate for, Mr. McMahon said that while they primarily focus on banking and the cannabis industry, they also want to call out the things going wrong generally in America. He said, “We’re trying to get the message out about this cannabis plant and about fair banking. We’re trying to bring awareness, not only to the cannabis industry but things that are going bad in this country.”
Continuing, he added, “We’re going to make a little bit of noise. We might get some votes just for the cannabis part. We’re gonna have some fun with it. We’re gonna try and grow our brand and make people aware about this plant. We’ll see what happens.”
He then turned from the main issues, cannabis and banking, and toward what else he sees as being a big issue. Namely, he said that it was high time the government shut down the border and started deporting those who crossed into the country illegally. Further, he argued that American tax dollars should be spent in the United States, not sent abroad.
Speaking about those issues, he said, “I’d close the damn borders for one and then go find all the people that got in here illegally,” he said. “It’s ridiculous. We’re paying all this money as taxpayers, and it’s not helping us at all. We’re sending it all overseas, you know. Who knows where we’re sending it, but it’s not being used here in the states.”
Continuing, he made his point about money spent and how numerous things are going wrong in a big way by turning from the border crisis to the homelessness situation in California, along with the money-printing and inflation that are infuriating many Americans and making their lives harder seemingly day by day, particularly when paired with the many other domestic issues.
Commenting on those issues, he said, “You look at California. They get the most money every year for homelessness, and they got the worst homeless population in the country or probably the world. There’s just so many things going wrong. We got to just stop the crazy spending and printing money and close our borders and let’s clean house.”
