defrocked from the mayor's position of Baltimore walked around and talked about the read the writing carcasses and smell those rats so and there was a film put together by PBS called rats in Baltimore two and a half hours long it's all over the place but the tribes set the tribes are says the same thing the Democrats are saying and he's a racist by that standard I guess NPR's filled with racist it's absurd never let a crisis go to waste and watching television today was embarrassing how these democratic leaders are calling out the president everything but a white man calling the white nationalists race is affiliated with **** the Ku Klux Klan and his children only president we've ever had that has numerous Jewish your courage Jewish grandchildren is this present and he can denounce amis announce them dozens of times you can see it constantly on the internet if you like to look into it and take a look just Google president trump denouncing racism it's all the time everywhere but not that's never fit and I guarantee you if the shooter and date according to media accounts tonight as a satanist eight registered Democrat a supporter of Elizabeth Warren if all that's true and that's the reporting tonight then the Dayton incident will be quickly drop by the mainstream media much like the shooting of Stephen Scalise was dropped after a couple days it didn't fit all the news that fits the printer this done fed they're not going to print much of it at all syntonic Pat patches on his clothing photographs and Democrat so it you know I don't care is politics bullets don't have colors are races genders on him you're dead I also have great sympathy for the nearly fifty people wound sometimes living can be worse than dying terrible injuries take place when a two to three goes through your body terrible injuries so before I go to bed tonight I'm gonna say a silent prayer maybe a one out loud hoping that those affected by the terrible violence in el Paso Dayton also Chicago every week and every weekend Chicago is going to have six to seven homicides in about four to five thousand people shot this year this year over the last ten years were talking numbers are just absurd how many no seven eight thousand dead forty thousand wounded in one city one city and the rates going down the mayor life of says the rate's going down but if the media can't use this to advance their agenda they ignored so what happened to congressman Stephen Scalise was ignored by the media after two days was that guy was a supporter of Bernie Sanders who had nothing to do with the shooting tribes got nothing to do with this character in Dayton no the murderer the Callard from Dallas area that drove over to help pass so to specifically kill individuals of color this is terrorism matter what it is it's white power whatever you wanna call it terrorism no different in black nationalism black terrorism you hear all the time or Islamic terror terrorist terror I was continue thousands on hold millions are listening let's go to Julie in New Jersey Gillian New Jersey welcome to the bill Cunningham show Julie go ahead hi bill it's a if it's true about this guy that is that no high is a Democrat and loves the list of water and it's up to the Republicans had mentioned this every day now because right now at two minutes ago CNN announced that they can guide there's nothing political they just announced that droop whatever the guys Davis the order there's nothing political both this story's true it's I see I blame the Republicans the Republicans should have never given a path to that Bernie Sanders gunmen they should I blame the entire year but they have read a wreck and the anti semitic rhetoric from the Democrat party is increasing Hey I hate crimes against Jewish people that's never said veiny is terrific but he should have said if you're going to blame prompt within a blame the anti semitic bigoted Democrat party for the rent a wreck against Jewish people holding the media accounts the Dane shooter twenty four year old I won't mention his name while war satanic patches his clothes I had on his social media supported and T. for he was a registered Democrat and he supported Elizabeth Warren now the political motivation I don't mail Paso murderer believed in a guaranteed income a lot of the social posting said everyone's got to get a check from the government believed in free healthcare yeah a lot of progressive values but the media is not going to talk about those values they're gonna talk about white nationalist and a white nationals will kill you as quickly as a black nationalist or an Islamic terrorist they're all the same to come from the same cloth right and there's very very few but the media axes here for long not to be overtaken by the complex client or something Republican support they never fight back I'm sick of this being called a racist for three years every day because I voted for trump then I'm going to get a crossover votes yeah I know Julie I thought it was a big deal when James Hoskinson who was a Democrat democratic activist drove hundreds of miles from Illinois at ten to hunt down specifically Republicans he stalked them for a few days I thought this a big story it was gone within two days because the Republicans didn't want to talk about it because they didn't blame they didn't blame Bernie Sanders a Ben and Jerry's for the behavior of this attempted murderer that's two wrong you know Julie two wrongs don't make a right that's well I know what you're saying bill where this case you have to five thirty just like they do to us it gets that you've got saying the Democrats they're laughed when they keep calling us racists say what red cell from sneezes he's a racist this means nothing and the shame them two wrongs don't make a right but in this case Republicans always you know what all right let's start a fight dirty the last six of the blame the entire Democratic Party if you'll give me one more example Steven king of Iowa made some intemperate comments he and the Republican Party under the demands of the mainstream media got a mouthful of the committees I will committee see K. safe can got he was banished by the Republican Party every time a Republican does something wrong the media runs around every other Republican and you got to denounce what Stephen king's out or denounce what trump center now as well where the Republican is the media runs around microphones at all the other Republicans the job on then we demand action when you along Omar and I somebody congressman says the kind of filled the thing she says about Jews the media never runs the other Democrats and say one thing about congressman Omar she should be censure kicked out no I never have a play by completely different set of rules I truly understand what you're saying but let's face it fair is fair Hussein Obama even though black lives matter was welcome inside the White House after ever getting the murder of cops and after the cops are killed in the riots took place Obama invited them into the White House Obama is not a black nationalist and does not have blood on his hands anymore than trump is not a white nationalist and is not have blood on his hands despite the behavior of these Democrats I would be anxious for CNN commentators to challenge these fools on the left to make ridiculous comments about a president that is can damn rock white supremacy on a regular basis let's go to Steven on a cell phone in North Carolina home of the tar heels and the wolf pack Stephen a North Carolina welcome to the bill Cunningham show Stephen go ahead hi bill two weeks all alone what you do and and all the server of great Americans to tell the truth thank you thank you well I've got the all the would change some of this stuff this along with the ACLU and the converse is heard out of our society and that does the law of god love god love your neighbor as you love yourself and they and Intel we get back to that that the the Democrats and the liberals they took the constitution excuse me that so the kids ten commandments out of out of the capital and out of the school and see let me ask you this we have a long list we have a long with society and that that's what they wanted to see if they are they are getting a society of goggles not now listen up we have massive Sentinel Kerr friend no problems almost every week there's one to two thousand Americans murdered by the communist red Chinese shipping Fenton on car front no one in the country we lose about seventy thousand a year it's a ridiculous number if any other foreign power was killing Americans much like Fenton on car friend always killing Americans every year we go to war with them we got that problem the churches are largely emptied out the that there is a hollowness in the American character that's happening right now and I don't like it **** is rampant filthy portrayals of women a biblical base to Christianity is not really preached almost anywhere in the country anymore and some of the underpinnings of our of our way of life have been afflicted and we have a president elected by the American people to do a job from the day he took office he was condemned by the radical left in the news media who never wanted him to do anything in office from the riding that took place the day after his election to the calls for his death the day after the inaugural when many Hollywood lefties talked about blowing up the White House this guy's dealt with this now for almost three years and it's ridiculous now that the grandfather of Jewish children is called a white nationalist despite the fact he's condemn them on a regular basis white nationalism is terrorism murdering those innocent people is despicable and if the Dayton guide led to what I got the death penalty and Mike DeWine would have signed it I guarantee a governor Abbott in the great state of Texas I love taxes is going to sign the next few years a death warrant to put that guy to death for what he did driving from Dallas to Paso the killing those innocent persons disgusting and I guess the ACLU and the Democrats on the left so I will fight to make sure his all of his rights well that by the end of the day governor Abbott will make sure that man is executed for what he did I don't care if it's a hate crime or not

Baltimore mayor submits resignation amid investigations
"The city of Baltimore is without a permanent mayor this evening after weeks of growing, please for mayor Catherine Pugh to step down. She finally resigned today in a letter read by her lawyer Steve Silberman today, I am submitting my ridden resignation to the Baltimore City council. I am sorry for the harm that I have caused to the image of the city of Baltimore and the credibility of the office of the mayor peers resignation comes during. Multiple investigations into sales of her children's books to explain more. We're joined now by Luke broad water of the Baltimore Sun. Welcome good afternoon. Sue, can you just give us some more details about what led to resignation today? Yes. Well for about a month and a half she has been under tremendous political pressure. It started with the story that we broke in the Baltimore Sun involving her business dealings as a member of the university of Maryland, Maryland, medical system board of directors. She had been selling five hundred thousand dollars worth of herself published children's books to the hospital network at a time when she was supposed to be overseeing their activities this spiraled into more investigative reporting from the sun that uncovered more similar deals with other business entities that do business with the city of Baltimore it prompted. Multiple investigations state local and finally a federal investigation. I think there's something like seven investigations and multiple calls for the mayor's resignation from the governor on down to every member of the city council. She hasn't been charged with a crime yet. But, but how likely is it that she is going to be facing charges? Why can't speculate about the likelihood of charges, but there are of luminous investigations going on numerous investigations. I mean, the FBI the IRS the state prosecutor the city ethics board the inspector general of the Maryland insurance administration. There are multiple investigations. And we do know that there are quite likely looking at her taxes and also her ethics forms in addition to any larger alleged corruption schemes now Pugh is the second Baltimore mayor in a decade to quit because of ties to criminal investigation. Right. So what would you? You say these resignations reflect about Baltimore City politics there. Why would hope folks nationally wouldn't get the wrong idea about Baltimore? Because I'm in Baltimore's my favorite city in the country. But the, but we have had a very serious problems here with leadership and governess governance being done in an ethical way. And you're right tumors ago. Mayor Sheila Dixon had to resign after pleading to perjury charges into the theft of gift cards meant for children. So this is two out of the last three mayors have resigned amid scandal. Of course, mayor Pugh is only under investigation. She is not charged with any crime. But the political pressure on her I think made it untenable for her to govern with the governor the state com roller the city delegation. The city council the business community everyone. Call on her to resign. Now just really quickly Pugh has been on leave since early last month because of medical issues and the current acting mayor does not want the job. So who's expected to take place while there will be a robust fuel of field of candidates now, including likely the past mayor, you reference mayor dick. In likely, we'll get back into the mix. There are some other top candidates from the city council from people who run for governor before I don't want to announce their campaigns for them, but it will be it'll be highly
