"We love talking about the issues with you and then her changing. Thoughts and ideas and will continue to do that the rest of the way at 808 590957 we were talking earlier about the Oakland County prosecutors race and they heard Marie talking about it in her new She's been doing it all morning, and former Oakland County Circuit Judge Karen McDonald Appears to be the upset winner over the incumbent Democrat prosecutor Jessica Cooper, who has served more than 11 years in that job, and you know she was the first Democratic prosecutor in Oakland County in 40 years. Yes, And now she's she's been voted out. So apparently Karen McDonald, the circuit court judges, the winner, and she will face Republican attorney Lynn gets Who was unopposed for the nomination. They will face off in November, so Ah, but it looks like I would think MacDonald would be the favorite to Ah to win that job with away. The county has gone also being watched closely the Democratic primary for Oakland County executive David Coulter appointed last year after the death of L. Brooks Patterson. He had a very, very narrow lead, but it it seemed to be decisive enough over Andy Meisner, the treasurer of Oakland County. And so David Coulter, who's serving in that job. Now you got about 53% of the votes, and it looks like he'll be on the ballot in November as well, Trying to win that seek full time to replace books. Patterson, the late great Brooks Patterson Okay, So we get back to your phone calls here at 808 590957 on DA All of us in Michigan. I would face up to the governor told us we're all racist have been for years here. This state is just we have implicit by us, she said. There's implicit bias in all of us. But only toward one race. There's no implicit buy us any other way. It's just white. People hate black people in her mind. That's what she believes, and that's what she spouts out there as a slander. Against anyone who doesn't stand for political partisanship. No one has time for political partisanship. Right now, Governor and what you're exercising is pulling partisan slander is what you're doing. Is absolutely ah, mind boggling. It would continue to do this. Let's go down in Finley, Ohio, cross the border and we'll check in with the Joe Who's on the line. 808 590957 Joe, Welcome to the program. Nice to have you with us, sir. Hi. Thanks Racist, Frank. This is racist. Joe and Stanley, How are you? Oh, are all Ohio white people? Racist as well? Like we had Michigan? No. I would have to assume so, Yeah, Anyway, what she said was all you Republicans have to drop your drop your resistance to the Enjoying the Democrats in a bipartisan way. What How can she protect? That's exactly what she was saying to you know, the president can consider payroll tax cuts. He can have this response to the Corona virus he and get masks out and restock our supply. That was run dry after the Obama years, And you know these. The only problem with the Obama Biden years was that they they used all of those for their own virus fights. And then they just didn't restock thumb and I hope President Trump whether he, you know, November's result that wasn't any. I hope that he will restock those masks on and whoever the next president's here, he or Joe Biden. That there will be enough to Ah to visit the next pandemic into fighting. Hey, Frank. I have looked into the black lives matter stuff and and really searched my soul. Really? And I read that Ah, Housing Administration all that the world even during World War ll The black people were not allowed into the, uh, money pool for to buy a house. They couldn't so they couldn't. They couldn't buy a house that they couldn't joy they couldn't get the inner inner road. Generational well going because they couldn't they had to rent always and and that was that was fixed in the fifties and the H and all that they've all rectify those problems almost to be reversed. Where the discrimination to me is now against white people. You could you know that the way I feel about it, But, yeah, I think that the other thing that happened when those policies were enacted. On. They are leftist policies now on and they're exercising government control over where people live and look, if there is built in racism, it would have been there to fromthe laughed Whitman. You know? Yes, exactly. And here's the thing. The Democrat Party should be eliminated from from popular vernacular because it stands. Slavery. Jim Crow, take it all. Democrat's politic. Here. You got it? That's exactly right. You've nailed it right there. Joe. Appreciate the phone call you be well down there in Ohio. OK, let's go Wicks him right now. George, You are next on the Frank Beckmann show. Good morning to you, sir. Hey, Frank. Thanks for taking my call, and I love your show. I'm having a great day, even after listening to what our governor went on about, and it is going to get better. A lot of times. I think that people get confused with short term actions that people are taking until they really look at the longer view of what they're trying to accomplish and was saying that I think our governor has us on a continual audition. To be our state to be the country's vice president. Kill candidate if you look at what she's done The advised the black meter ship Advisory board. Lbgt comments the constant pounding on systemic racism, it only adds up once you look at Our state in our governor, having a continual audition to be the vice president exactly, and her comment that all the white people in Michigan are have implicit bias is absolutely slanders. I just I cannot get over that she would make such a claim. That is totally unsupportive ble and has no basis in fact whatsoever. It's it's I wanted to get the audition thing on first, because when it comes to the requested bias, sir, I had done a first responder, a licensed in Michigan for 40 years for decades. And for someone to tell me that I'm a racist. I treat people differently that when I was hanging my butt out on I 90 for saving people of a different color than me that I'm latest. Oh, that Siri ate me and.

"The Frank Beckmann show. News talk seven sixty WJR. I don't I don't think you have the call Brian and water. I was gonna say you better call Brian Dickerson and warned him about getting the big one because I'm gonna compliment amounts of the euro, he's the editorial page editor. And is I mean, he's completely one-sided? What did you say? I said could have the big one when he hears that I'm going to complement of. Wow. On a PC. He wrote. Of course, it's got it's got its share of unsupportable material in it that makes gestures that are not factual like this. Okay. So the the the the Genesis of the piece is that because Democrats have taken control of the house of representatives the county commission out in Oakland County that if Brooks Patterson were to step down and not fulfill the end of his current term Democrats would choose his interim successor. And so he wrote how Democrats could pick Brooks Patterson's Oakland County successor. Okay. So the the story of the second paragraph in his column says in two thousand eleven at county executive Patterson's behest legislators voted along party lines to adopt. He tries to say. Okay. Republicans who fixing this to adopt a law. They hoped would reinforce the GOP's loosening grip on Oakland and assure that Republican county commission majority would pick Patterson's interim successor in the event he resigned from office before completing his term now in two thousand eleven the date that you cite there be. There's there's one problem that was before Brooks had his accident by year, the accident happened in two thousand twelve so there was there was no looking ahead that he might have to step down. Okay. You forgot to mention that. I just wanted to bring that up. Okay. That's one. But number two is his point is well taken that with Democrats now controlling the board that should Brooks Patterson before too. Concede his remaining time in office at any point before his term is up the dams would pick a successor. And then they could get anti Meister in their whoever they wanted Brooks is on the other end of our line. I'm not sure he's ready to throw in the towel. Just yet. I don't I'm not make any plans. I ran for a four year term. I'm going to complete it when Iran, I was in a wheelchair. So there's nothing has happened. In the meantime, that would make me want to step out.

Bet stayed speeches on Monday. That's a lot of preparation out of work and so forth. Hardly know. No. Slow day. I'm I'm up to the task. And I intend to before finish up my term, but I didn't see article I heard about it. But I didn't read it because I have a theory rather be uninformed misinformed. So I never read requests. Well, like, I said, it's it's an interesting piece because it it does outline how Dem's have taken control of the of the county board now, and you have seen the the so-called Blue Wave slowly creeping Oakland County over time, and that's accurate. I mean, I'm not blind. I MP's out. They move into the counting to bring up politics with them. And it's only a matter of time before we saw what happened last. And I can't stop them from the league. Illegal shot is hoping to get out here. They pre sheet what we built a kind of AAA rated. We have no debt unemployment stark loans and crime is basically something under control out here in versus whatever evening. So am I just boggles my mind that they leave threatening? And they wanna solve on here. Xactly what they play. Doesn't make sense. Now that does a does not make a lot of sense. And that's why people want to come to Oakland County because it is so successful men so thriving, and there's there's so much to do and see. And it's a great life in Oakland County. It is and we were trying to keep a day away. And if there is a change in leadership, party wise and the democratic takeover.

"I i want you to know i remember that time and the lectures moved their headquarters downtown senator and there's no question you're absolutely right had it not been for your dad that would not have happened that was that was a key part in starting the renaissance of downtown detroit it was i mean that in the red wings well i remember my father's a story here on my father he decided he was going to build a whole what do you mean the most expensive all in the ground he was in yes they're all his own money upfront i in came over from their leadership decided to be able to build a stadium so he really he was really on the forefront of innovation but he also did a lot of people here in the city to highlight of folks people need a job you also provided a lotta say by he was also somebody who as it he picked the button the majorly on five he's so he did involved as well he also had a program for poverty is dealing with poverty at that particular time so my father you also my father was really smart you really was really you know he was the mark of a great leader i think is between the leaders and the great leader is that the good leaders how you how to stay on the great leaders may also great and that's what my father did to city let me ask you this why why do you think is you know your dad is still considered sort of a polarizing figure in the region because of that famous quote to the criminals of detroit hit eight mile road and brooks patterson said no no no don't at eight mile road stay.
