"One day thanksgiving there's so much we can be thankful for we will talk some more about that but look at Hong Kong most important place on planet earth in today's world compare look at the young people compare the young people not all young people obviously but a lot of the snow flakes in the lefties who of young people who have been brainwashed and propagandized by the radical left the college professors to do this stuff on a daily basis to our kids you know think about it they talk about debt college debt right billions of dollars think about it this way billions of dollars in college debt that paid for the brain washing and misleading of our children that's what that billions of dollars was used for that we now have debt to mislead our children to hate America the blame America and here comes the First Lady the beautiful First Lady comes to Baltimore two U. M. B. C. I believe it was and she's coming there to fight opioids the got the president is dedicating his entire salary to fighting and not for the whole year but I think for this month the fighting opioids and she's helping to promote the message and the knuckle head youth at this rally blue the First Lady lot of class they're blowing the First Lady now compare that to the young people in Hong Kong who are being shot that with rubber bullets being shot at and killed for six months out on the streets of Hong Kong along with middle aged middle class people too but the young people leading the fight for democracy and for freedom against the Chinese Communist Party out there fighting everyday with fire against weapons from the police those young people understand and know what it has to have freedom because they've had it and they know what it is to have it taken away our snow flakes what are they do they fight against the first amendment the constitution and the freedom of speech they should be ashamed of themselves course they'll learn about America as they get older and they pay taxes and maybe they get caught something besides the propaganda they are learning about in our local schools K. through twelve and higher education to compare the two youths but in their in Hong Kong they are fighting and not only are they fighting in the streets for their freedom but they just had an election in Hong Kong there are two bodies of government there's the legislative body which is mostly dominated by pro Chinese politicians and then there is the counselors now the election was for the counselors and guess what happened in that election the pro democracy people one three hundred and ninety two seats out of four hundred and fifty two the pro China a communist one sixty they came out with a seventy one percent turnout so they won that big election and don't think that didn't shake things up now in the next election for the legislative seats you're going to see the same thing and I got to give the president credit three cheers for the president he is being constrained by this trade agreement he's trying to develop with the Chinese they've been taking advantage of us for forty years stealing our trade secrets stealing our jobs stealing our businesses he's the first president to stand up the first one could tell us the truth that we are at war with China and they are winning and I'm gonna tell you more about that a little bit later they are winning that war it's very scary very dangerous situation I'm going to tell you about a little while but the fact of the matter is that the Senate and the house of representatives actually came together they came together and they agreed on something they agreed on an act against China in favor of Hong Kong they voted for it all motion animus Lee I believe in three cheers for the house and the Senate and they were skeptical that the president would not sign this new back to help Hong Kong and the help freedom and democracy because he was concerned it would interfere with the trade negotiations which are very important also to the future of the world and to controlling China but the president believes so much and liberty that despite any consequences and the Chinese try to intimidate the president they tried to threaten the president that if he signed that bill that will be bad times on the trade but the fact of the matter is the Chinese are in such bad shape because of the trade undergo the goshi Asians and the terror of they're in bad shape they're losing economically four to one compared to the U. S. and it's really hurting them they're not gonna do anything he signed that act he signed that bill three cheers for the president he did the right thing and also if he would not have signed that bill the Chinese would take it for granted as a weakness the fact that he signed the bill signed the act for Hong Kong democracy and freedom the fact that he did it now makes them Stephanopoulos say listen this is a tough president we better pay attention so he did the right thing it actually made him stronger made the freedom fighters of Hong Kong stronger so this is an important issue or take a call from Homer in rising sun Homer good morning are your dorm our friends doing well thank you I want to talk about the salon for group called me for who I do believe it should be put down as a criminal groups you saw them in their glory just recently went in culture tried to talk on a college campus out there in California hello what and the left coast they our manager in saying they manage to surround the area allowing arms and prevented people from going in in hearing free speech for all three famous for being out there and Seattle beating people with clubs and everything else easy and cheap of people or so current date they cover their faces displayed from watching Germany in nineteen thirty three all over again and the whiners country wants to do a damn thing about issues and they should be declared a terrorist group by the president that's the way to slow them down and also local authorities like in Portland Oregon the mayor had the police stand down while anti fur was acting up and getting out of control and of course we you know we had experience with that kind of mayor one Blake said that stand down and let the writers do their thing so it has a lot to do with local authorities and it also is the fact that I think the president I know he's make comments I don't know where the authority is with bill bar at the department of justice but they should be could considered and classified as a terrorist organization thank you very much hammer yeah I agree that's got to be done but that's mostly young people but they're being financed by George Soros George Soros finances a lot of this stuff but getting back to Hong Kong this is important historically and it really is because China is our greatest threat we're gonna talk about that but that the of the elections they not only demonstrated in the streets and they're brave and on their university in Hong Kong they are taking up and holding up and protest thing and the police are going in there and beating them over the head and shooting of the rubber bullets and putting the gas into the university to get them out of there well where as in Baltimore at Johns Hopkins when the snow flakes were chaining themselves inside the administrative building because they didn't think it was a good idea to have police protecting the campus at Hopkins to protect the students a special police force which would alleviate the problem for the local Baltimore city police force when it made common sense and was needed and the snow flakes thought it was so impressive and then they engaged in fascist activities and civil disobedience or criminal disobedience and what did the local police do they let them sit there for thirty days inside that Hopkins campus building that administrative building which was very important the professors could not access their work they could not access the computers to keep the Hopkins running so the local police being soft on this kind of nonsense I'll tell you if I was the police chief they would have been out of there in five minutes but finally they came in there the very soft rules of engagement we're gonna talk about the new rules of engagement for per Palmer city police putting them in danger again with more nonsense when we talk about the crime issue in a few minutes but here they go they go in there they on chain these little monsters and they walked him out to safety and they let them go and Mosby who are those not prosecute any criminals related to drugs she doesn't prosecute the snow flakes he lets them go just compare the use of Hong Kong through the use in America and you see the difference their freedom was taken away or they were threatened we might see a different generation so anyway the big bill was passed the president signed that the Chinese griped as usual but the point was made and what that means is that if the Chinese send troops in the Hong Kong they're going to be sanctions and other reactions instead of nothing happening I you know it's fantastic these kids in China and Hong Kong they are marching through the streets in downtown with American flags yeah the radical left in America the fascists in America won't even salute or put their hand over their heart with the American flag and those young people in Hong Kong singing the national anthem our national anthem and our millionaire football players taken Neil a knee on the national anthem amazing stuff visited under circumstances when you have total freedom and you live in the greatest country in the world you can abuse your patriotism take it out on our flag and our national anthem well people who are oppressed under fascist Chinese communist government they certainly sing the national anthem to carry the flag why say Hong Kong is the most important place in the world today when it comes to freedom now unfortunately and we hope this doesn't happen at some point I have seen these people interviewed and all of the interviews both the middle class the older people and the young young people all say the same thing I will die I will die to get freedom in Hong Kong these people are serious they are living this thing remember give me liberty or give me death that's what this is all about in Hong Kong liberty or death and the Chinese communists whose power an image is at stake here can't allow.

"Have to do these things after all we were biased and discriminatory against poor people and against poverty one housing in Baltimore county for all these years we were very very bad which is all a bunch of baloney and also tonight we're going to tell you how this thing can be resolved the long term what must be done to protect Baltimore county against the great transformation of Baltimore county by Johnny Bernie Sanders all show ski it is a transformation as far as I'm concerned and I don't mind saying it you know I say what I think they're taking us down the road to destruction we will talk about some other initiatives the Johnny has already opened up besides housing for example he's already bringing race into the question of the Baltimore county police force you know what race has done to the Baltimore city police force with the federal decree coming out of the Obama administration and why there are six hundred openings in the Baltimore city police department and nobody wants to work there and put their career on the line will now county executive OSHA ski has introduced that initiative that policy in the Baltimore county police department and I'm sure all the guys and gals that work for this police department are real happy about that I know that none of them vote voted for all Chesky anyway but the fact of the matter is that that's what he's doing that is the road to destruction you know tax increase tax increase unnecessary completely unnecessary sanctuary county and now an expansion and I'm telling you this is just the first shoe falling in reference to section eight housing a lot of you know that I mean I've traveled around this county from Catonsville Dundalk and I know how the people feel and a lot of people you know you've heard this before because I said it I worked for William Donald Schaefer when he was the mayor of Baltimore when I was a at twenty one twenty two twenty three years old yes yes I was that age once I know you don't believe it but I was and you know don Shafer always told me he said Pat the foundation of a city or county is the neighborhoods and the neighborhoods are put together by housing and home ownership is important but the movement neighborhoods maintain the communities and the communities maintain the city that was the city at that time and now of course we are in Baltimore county and look at Dundalk look at park will look at Timonium I guess what kings will Moncton stand ready north county get ready it's the slow destruction and undermining of the beautiful community foundation system that made Baltimore county so great a great place to live right and now what is yeah crime is out of control we're going to set a record for murders this year we're going to set a record for violent crimes in Baltimore county this year we've already had a police officer murdered by teenage thug from Baltimore city now the thing is none of that is any good and we'll get into that later on but them the executive wants to form a committee about racial relations in Baltimore county with the police but that's not what we're going to start off with we're going to start off with the eight hundred pound gorilla that's in front of us we're going to start off with the problem that we are facing and this is of course the build it's going to be voted on on Monday it's bill forty nine dash nineteen and this is the bill that is going to force county landlords to accept section eight vouchers even if they do not want to do it now one of the people who has been around for a long time and has been a leader and housing and as a landlord no he came to Annapolis frequently to fight on issues and he's been a leader in in that arena and he has I think some very important points that he can make about this idea of why this is not breaking censored not even fair maybe even in my opinion unconstitutional force property owners business people owners of homes to take section eight housing even if they do not wish to do it so we want to welcome you on board Ben Frederick and get his opinions tonight about this issue Ben welcome to the show good evening thank you for inviting me to come on the show well then you came to my attention although I thinking about it I do remember you because you had been to Annapolis many times but up share with our audience a little bit about your background that I have been in the real estate business for forty years now my worked in my family's company for twenty years ten years of that is spent running my family's property management business I history in real estate goes back to nineteen oh four my grandfather started in real estate in Baltimore in nineteen oh four and the third generation and the real estate business in my family in my practice I specialize in helping people find cell apartment buildings in investment properties so I work with people that own it rental properties all over the Baltimore metro area every day well I'm sorry go ahead in addition to that I serve on the legislative committee of the board of realtors the legislative committee of the mailing multi housing association and I was president of the property owners association of greater Baltimore for seven years well you've been around I I did have the opportunity to meet you when I ran for county executive but are you wrote a wonderful article in the Baltimore sun which really brought me up to you to your attention to you and it made so much sense and I I was going through the article and I'm going to go through the article not going to read it but I'm gonna ask you some questions just looking and reflecting at your article and I'm gonna go from top to bottom some of the points that that you you brought up like for example the beginning of your article you say that the landlord to do not want to participate in this program are being called either races or this is discriminatory but you say that now it's not that the there this is a federally mandated lease and and that it has rules and regulations and all kinds of things that simply people who are landlords and on private property and our private business owners want to have the right to not choose to participate yes it is of this section eight voucher Cory's housing program was designed to be a voluntary program much like any other voucher program that the federal government gets involved in so it entices landlords on a voluntary basis to participate in this program and it's just like in any business real estate is no different from any other business I as a business owner have the option of choosing my business model part of the business model is I get to choose what products and services I'm going to provide I get to choose where I put my business and I get to choose what population I'm gonna serve yeah and you know like one of the roles that as part of this so I DO that the federal government can force a lease upon you and the way it works with inspectors and such if the tenants do damage to your personal property then the inspector can come around and say to you for the damage they did but they are not responsible and you can lose a rental or you can lose a contract but you have to pay for the damage but they are not responsible even though they did it yeah and I think this is a function of how the individual public housing authorities institute the program and how they enforce the rules of the program that's not a requirement I mean it's tennis if the tenant does damage to the property the tenant is supposed to pay for the damages it's just that the local housing authorities they don't enforce that they put it on the landlords so that's a local implementation of the program that can be changed and can be altered and this is our thing is that in November community and then helping provider community we say it's not the source of income that we're concerned about it the strings it's not the sources the strings it's the strings that come with hatch the forces supporting this program if you want more housing providers if you want more property owners to participate in the housing choice voucher program make the program more accountable make it more user friendly make it work better and more memos for voluntarily participate and also make it fair and make a fair you know I served in the legislature for many years and I've always said that people who are elected local officials like counsel people or legislators to be honest with you we are glorified social workers and because I'm fairly well known in the community I would receive all of the phone calls and emails from various neighborhood people and neighborhood community associations telling me well this particular section eight house it's a nuisance house they have too many cars they have too many people they have drugs going in and out and everything and I would try to get of the local government whether it was in the case of the state which not it's usually the case but like Baltimore county to enforce existing rules and regulations against the tenants but number one they wouldn't do anything there was no real response many many times and elected officials all over the county will tell you that number one and number two it would all be placed one on the landlord so the only people who have rights in the section eight voucher world with local governments in particular are the tenants the neighborhoods the community the homeowners the landlords they do not have rights and they do not get any response from the local government now one of the things I know for a fact and I said this in my campaign the housing department in Baltimore county is under the health department Kevin can minutes put it there you know housing I think you would agree band is pretty important to a community not only section eight but the whole policy of house and he did he downgraded housing department and I was going to move the housing department out and make it an independent agency transparent and open and accessible and also I know for a fact that the people who run the housing department in Baltimore county are very very aggressive advocates of section eight housing and in fact the people at the top in the housing department are members of the national organization that promotes section eight housing but the whole discrimination thing as you point out in your article to start with there is already federal law all the dresses that I learned at a very early age invade distance offering housing on a fair equal opportunity basis his center cult to being part and being a member of the community I clean it is healthy and so we learned not to discriminate all for housing on in a fair and equal basis to everybody regardless of their race religion color creed sex national origin family status handicap all of these things and that's federal law as federal law if state law it's local law as real estate people when we got a real estate license every two years we have to go through fair housing training and as a result of this this emphasis on fair housing equal opportunity in housing from nineteen seventy seven until now there's been a ninety percent reduction in the incidence of racial discrimination and rental housing yeah that's what I that's above formal study yeah that was a formal study conducted by her side in twenty six major metropolitan areas including Baltimore so obviously we would love for it to be a hundred percent but we are human we all have our failings a ninety percent reduction you know we solve ninety percent of the problem and I think we should be celebrating the loner depreciated for that yeah that's not gonna happen under the current administration we have to take a break Ben I want to come back you've you've brought up so many great points in your article in the Baltimore sun which a lot of people do not know about and what I've discovered of course everybody came and you you train mayor you educated me a little more but I do get out into the community I get the phone calls I know the concerns and they are not being addressed and and the people are just starting to get to the point where they want to be taken seriously and they want their point of view to be taken seriously what I want to get back to your article when we come back after this quick break yeah you talk about a Johns Hopkins study you talk about half the rentals are in small properties and that about only twenty five percent of them are actually making profit and.

"This morning is the newly elected president of the F O P lodge free. It's the Baltimore City police union, and this is sergeant Mike men. Cousteau sergeant good morning. Welcome to the show. Guys. Are you? We're doing just fine. We wanted to get John here. And there are a number of things that have made news of the last several weeks and months regarding the police, and and Baltimore City and and hear directly from you. What your perspective and analysis of it is it's I start with a new police Commissioner, Mike Harrison and his reorganization restructuring of police command. What are your thoughts on that? Oh, I think every new police Commissioner does some of this reorganization, obviously, it's their successor failure hinge on this sort of stuff. So, you know, should be allowed, and we accept it. It's common practice, which should be noted though is that, you know, I feel you know, it recently an article, but. You know, I think over the last several years probably the best leaders in this department has, you know, not accepted promotions. Above the ranking Lieutenant so I'm sorry. I just don't pay you know, the promotional test because they just don't want to go towards that command structure because it's just been such a toxic environment over the last several years. They just don't want anything to do with it. Why is that? Do you believe in sewn? Now, why why do you believe it? So toxic. You know, I think that you know, people over the last several years that had entered the command ranks, and I'm not talking about all of that. Some of them are good police and they've done a good job at the command level, but a good majority of more place because of who they knew not for what they could accomplish on the streets. And I think when you don't have the knowledge you need to be in his position. On things just become unravel. They they're not able to do their job it become it just becomes toxic. On the last week or so we've seen the twenty six new grads from the police academy in in a department. That's at least five hundred officers short, perhaps we need more than that get your perspective on that. But the I remember a time in this this area would you'd have hundreds of grads in a police academy. What does that tell you about what's going on right now? Yeah. I I think it's a it's something that's going on all across the country. But here in Baltimore difficult. You know in this in this area. There's some really high paying police counties in the frontier sections and the working conditions. There are much better than here. You know? I just think that. You know, it's just not an attractive place to work. I mean, if you're, you know, twenty twenty one twenty two we're just coming out of the military, and you're putting up, you know, Baltimore City against Howard county. Baltimore County, Montgomery PG. We just don't match up. And you know, we have the worst working conditions here. I mean, we've got officers that report for patrol in the morning and get you know, they change their clothes at their core. Because they don't want to enter some of these district houses. You know, the conditions are just bad. This is Frank Lubar joining the conversation here as we all know, the Baltimore City went out of the state to get Michael Harrison from New Orleans, and my question now is will Michael Harrison go out of state, again, we already know that he's brought a couple of people as far as command positions are concerned from New Orleans. Will he go out of the state even more? So to to get people that he feels are are going to be able to to do the job and command Baltimore city's police force in the future. Yeah. I believe definitely. I mean, they posted nationally for various positions, which leads music leave. They will have been told that they're probably going to bring in probably upwards of eight upper level command members and most likely they will not come from the ranks of the PD here the hell with that affect the morale, and and or just affect the average police officer. Well, I mean, if you bring in eight upper command that have no knowledge really truly they have none from what they read. I mean, really learn this city it takes years if you're not from here. You know, I came from out of state thirty. I mean from out of town thirty years ago. And it was certainly a learning curve, and they're going to have that as well. And so it'll take years if they say that long. I don't know. Let me ask you a question. You probably thought about Michael Harrison as to what kind of Commissioner he's going to be if you had to compare him to other previous commissioners here in Baltimore who do you think he is closer to as far as his methodologies plan for reducing crime at cetera. I think initially what you know, when I first heard some of the things commissioned a Harrison said it reminded me of Commissioner, Batts philosophies. I've heard a lot of talk from the commission. I have not sat down one on one with the Commissioner after I guess, two and a half months. We have a meeting plan for next week. Finally, and. Yeah. I just think that what I've heard is a lot about the consent decree heard a lot of the citizens of Baltimore. But I've heard very very little you think that's. The police department. Was the the main reason why he was hired to begin with because he has experienced in operating under a consent decree. I think that's probably part of it. Then I think, you know, the other part is probably you know, he said the right things. I mean, his focus was going to be the consent the Korean the citizens. And I think he's made that perfectly clear on every you know, newsgroup that he's spoken to or, you know, different community meetings. He makes it perfectly clear, but he is not the minute women talk about it all the time. We have not heard what he's going to do for us. Mike, d do you think it would be advantageous to remove the I guess supervision of the Baltimore City police department and the Commissioner from the mayor's office and take it back to the either the legislature or the governor would that be more beneficial to the rank and file of the Baltimore PD? Depend on who the governor was. I think we keep it out of the legislature. But I think that would certainly depend on. You know point. There are Kirk governor. I would love it. It's a fair point that you make we're we're talking with pope e lodge three president, Mike Mancuso more with him in just a moment of beef ause what's happening with traffic.
