095: Top Political Operative Tells Americans to Escape – Carter Clews

Carter Clews interviewed by Mikkel Thorup on The Expat Money Show

Today’s guest on the Expat Money Show has long been considered one of America’s foremost political operatives. He has worked on numerous major election campaigns, from the congressional to the presidential levels, and he currently serves as a strategic advisor to some of Washington’s top political organizations and media groups. With the US Elections only a few months away, obviously, our discussion will revolve around politics. 

Carter Clews is THE GODFATHER of an organization called Constitutional Rights Pac and has been in the political arena for more than 50 years, serving and working with many many Presidents. His favourite really nice guy? Ronald Regan. The rest…dirty, really dirty. Dirty as the day is long!

When asked, Is politics dirty? He answers…yes, when it’s done right!!

Today’s discussion started with politics, the Coronavirus and getting the hell out of Dodge! 

Did we say Coronavirus? We meant ‘fake’ Coronavirus. 

Mikkel Thorup and Carter Clews talk about the biggest question on everyone’s mind: Who do you think will become the President of the United States come November 3rd. Obviously, Carter has no idea, but what he does say is that if Trump gets re-elected life won’t be easy, but if Biden gets in the economy WILL crash and the USA will be much worse off. Biden has already said he would raise taxes…and that’s just the beginning…

(Side note: for anyone who is curious, Mikkel is a libertarian, not a Conservative)

Then the discussion headed south, really south..to Honduras. Carter and Mikkel talk about life in Central America, Honduras to be specific. Carter has a home there and his wife is Honduran, so he really knows what he is talking about when he discusses what it’s like to live your life in a country that you can do good things for. Like, buy a house, go to restaurants, own a car, have a beer in the local pub… those are all good things.


Topics discussed in detail in this interview:

  • US 2020 Elections
  • The turning point of leaving the USA
  • Capitalism NOT Democracy
  • Free Market Enterprise
  • Iran, Iraq and North Korea
  • Taxes in California
  • 3 most dangerous words in the English language: Health and Safety
