What a Disappointment Rep. Peter Meijer Turned Out to Be

"Couple summers ago and turning point action was starting a series of super Saturdays, turning point action did a series of door knocking, campaigns across America, organized by the great Tyler Boyer and the whole turning point action team separate from the educational ventures of turning point USA. So I remember I was in Chicago and I drove to Grand Rapids, Michigan. That's not an easy drive for those of you that have done it throughout the night because the next morning we are starting our door knocking for a certain candidate in western Michigan. I got up very early and rally the troops and told everybody that in western Michigan, we need to put our forces together to go get a certain person elected by the name of Peter Meyer. Now mind you, I don't know why we endorsed Peter Meyer largely because I thought it was a flip district or something like that, a way to kind of gain ground. But what an incredible disappointment and let down. Peter Meyer in western Michigan has become. He has become a camera seeking attention grabbing self righteous congressman who voted for the impeachment of Donald Trump was like one of the first things he did right out of the gate. He sprints to try to go on cable television at every single corner imaginable. And he's someone I have very little respect for. And he's got to go and he's got to go right now. And there is a great candidate running

"In addition, a 2017 city traffic stop study commissioned at the recommendation of activists found that in 2015, black drivers were twice as likely to be pulled over than other drivers. A subsequent traffic study was planned, but delayed by the pandemic, Thompson Jenkins, who is black, says. The results of a Michigan department of civil rights investigation into the department, which began in 2019, have never been made public. John E Johnson junior, director of the Michigan department of civil rights, who is black, told time in an email that the department didn't have the resources or staffing that would have been needed to thoroughly investigate the department's patterns and practice. The agency is currently working on 29 individual complaints of discrimination. The department in the past and again in the wake of this tragedy, he said, has asked the U.S. Department of Justice and the office of the Michigan attorney general to look into the matter. Johnson said he could not comment directly on the Liu ya shooting because state police are still investigating. And then there are the individual day to today experiences that haunt the minds of some Grand Rapids residents. Not only those who experience them directly. There was a 2017 incident in which an 11 year old black girl was confronted outside her home by officers with guns drawn, who were searching for her aunt. The girl was handcuffed and put in a police cruiser as she and her mother pleaded with officers. The officers were not disciplined, but in 2018, activists successfully pushed for a policy change, guiding police interactions with children. The rule was named in honor of the girl, who subsequently died of COVID-19 in 2020 at the age of 14. In 2019, a Latino veteran, a U.S. citizen with PTSD, was reported to ice after an arrest. The man was put on a path to deportation until a lawyer hired by his family was able to intervene. The department agreed to pay the man a $190,000 settlement. In 2021, a black man missed his mother in law's wake after police pulled their weapons on him while he was waiting in a driveway believing him to be a different man, one who had been wearing different clothing who had just pulled a gun on a group of people. And Brandon Davis of the oversight office keeps one such incident in his mind, too. He learned via social media about a march incident in which an officer appears on tape repeatedly punching a man in the head during an arrest. However, Davis says it's important to note that those issues occurred under previous police chiefs. He believes that, despite activists frustrations with past experiences and improved relationship between the GRP and black citizens is still possible. Pain the recently retired chief who rose through the ranks of the grp could not be reached for comment. In interviews before his departure, he described community policing as one of his chief priorities, as well as the work of improving police community relations. Police he said at the time had done work to be proud of, but had also contributed to systemic racism. In 2020, he was one of a smattering of police chiefs across the country who took a knee during protests after the death of George Floyd. Past administrations were not as open, Davis says, and I don't say that to speak disparagingly about anyone. But our new chief has expressed a much greater commitment to providing information and I believe.

"One, a white man who suffered from chronic hip pain had been arrested while stretching his legs at a gas station. The other, a black man was detained for sitting in his car outside a sports bar while a friend held a spot in a long entry line near the door. Grand Rapids police settled and agreed to end the practice in 2017. The following year, a federal judge declared the practice unconstitutional. But, said the officers involved were shielded by qualified immunity. Among the evidence the ACLU presented black people in Grand Rapids were more than twice as likely as white residents to have been stopped when the program was active. The second program, known colloquially as stop photograph and fingerprint, was supposed to function like Grand Rapids version of New York City's infamous stop and frisk program. In 2013, a federal court deemed the latter had been applied in an unconstitutional fashion. It was billed by police as a crime prevention measure. In practice, it involved police collecting fingerprints and pictures of about a thousand individuals each year, most were not charged with a crime, but police stored that information as if certain they would have reason to compare it against crime scene evidence in the future. Many of those subjected to the practice were teenagers and 70% were black, according to public records data analyzed by the ACLU. Grand Rapids is a city where just 18% of the population identified themselves as black in the most recent census. Courts in Kent county, which includes Grand Rapids and the state Court of Appeals sided with police in an ACLU suit over the practice. The case is now pending before the Michigan Supreme Court. Both of these programs were designed essentially as fishing expeditions. Aukerman argues. Unsurprisingly, the data shows that both of these programs resulted in very disproportionate stops and in the case of the trespass program arrests of black people, it's the kind of over policing that is the reason that people of color are terrified of the police. Grand Rapids police and their union did not respond to requests for comment. At the state level, multiple bills proposing changes for all policing agencies in Michigan were filed in 2020. Shortly after the death of George Floyd in nearby Minnesota, but none has passed..

"That charge includes police. He's also a black American man, a lawyer, and well aware of the particularly rocky policing landscape recent and past in this western Michigan City of almost 200,000. About an hour's drive from the shores of Lake Michigan. In fact, his role at the office of oversight and public accountability wouldn't exist if it weren't for the prodding of local activists and a city manager also black who have spent years demanding the Grand Rapids police department, abandoned programs and practices that have been shown to target black and Latino residents in extreme ways. This is a place where funding levels for the police department are written right into the city charter, where for nearly a decade, every police cruiser has been outfitted with colt M4 semi-automatic rifles. When Grand Rapids first black police chief retired earlier this year and was replaced by Eric winstrup and experienced officer from Chicago, who is white. Few would have predicted that things might have been about to change. After all, activists and officials had been pushing for reform for years and despite repeated rounds of meetings and debates, have felt stymied at every turn. Now, in the wake of the April 4th death of Patrick lyonia, a 26 year old Congolese refugee who was killed by a police officer following a traffic stop..

Getting to Know Gerald Ford, the 38th President of the United States

"Let's dig in. This was a speech that was given by Gerald Ford president of the United States in 1977. It was January. It was his State of the Union, and I think he went ahead and took it to the State of the Union because Gerald Ford has an interesting perspective of being the only person ever to serve as president. And vice president, both, and never be elected to those offices. He was a member of the House of Representatives when Spiro Agnew resigned from the vice president. He was appointed by Richard Nixon to become vice president after Richard Nixon resigned. He taking again through the Twenty-fifth Amendment became president of the United States. So he serves as the only person to have ever served as president of this country without actually being elected. We've had some who have ascended to those roles, but if they actually served, if they serve later, they were actually president, but this was one in which he was actually appointed to the vice president's role, not elected to that vice president's role. So in moving up, it makes it makes an interesting anomaly in history. But it also sort of fits one Gerald Ford. If you look into his background, you look into where he came from. He's a midwesterner, raised in mission, Grand Rapids, went to school at the University of Michigan, played football there was a star football player. In fact, one two national titles there undefeated football teams at the University of Michigan after that went to Yale law school and then served in the United States Navy during World War II came out and began his service in the United States House where he served over 25 years before he was picked to be vice president and president.

"Behind Grand Rapids nice, police problems run deep in Michigan by Olivia B waxman. The streets of Grand Rapids, Michigan, have been the scenes of protest over the last week, since police last Wednesday released video that showed a white officer shooting a black man in the back of the head after a traffic stop. The incident and the community's expression of unhappiness are one more chapter in the story of recent protests that began when a Minneapolis police officer murdered George Floyd by kneeling on his neck in 2020. But experts on Grand Rapids history note that for Michigan's second largest city, which is about two thirds white and 20% black, this story is much more than two years old, like many Midwestern cities, Grand Rapids boasts a progressive image that has obscured deep seated problems for black residents. People joke sometimes, calling it bland rapids because of its similarity to all the other cities, says Randall Maurice jokes, author of African Americans in the furniture city, the struggle for civil rights in Grand Rapids. And people have the saying, Grand Rapids nice, which means that people on the surface appear courteous and on the back end are quite exclusionary. Progressive imagery permitted racism to hide in plain sight for decades, Todd Robinson, historian, and author of a city within a city, the black freedom struggle in Grand Rapids, Michigan, told time in an email. In 1949, Grand Rapids received the first of three, 1960 and 1981 followed. National civic league all American city awards, while maintaining a thoroughly racialized landscape through redlining, discriminatory lending policies and racial steering. These practices further widened the wealth housing educational and social gap between white and black residents. Robinson argues that segregation created a city within a city in Grand Rapids, in which over policing of predominantly black enclaves was used to preserve the whiteness of other areas, as the city's black population grew after World War II, with new residents heading to work for companies like General Motors, so did police presence in their communities. Many black people left the south because of the changing agricultural economy as cotton picking when automated, looking for better wages, and those wages were thought to be in factories and auto industries, says jokes. And one way of dealing with black communities for the cities in which they arrived was to heavily police them, and that became a problem. That problematic relationship has erupted into protest before. In fact, it was a traffic stop incident that jolted the city more than 50 years ago. The summer of 1967 earned the nickname the long hot summer for violent upheaval that took place in many American cities, triggered by continued racial injustice, a three day protest erupted in Grand Rapids in July 1967 after police used excessive force against an African American youth at a traffic stop. The Vietnam War contributed to heightened tensions after fighting in two wars, the Korean War and the Vietnam War, the city's black Americans, like many across the country and the world, pointed out the irony of being sent to supposedly defend freedom abroad while they still had to fight for freedom in the U.S.. They're not up for being bossed around and being told what to do by the police because they too had in essence the same training as many police officers had by being veterans, says jokes. Nearly 180 African Americans were arrested during the 1967 uprising, and no major policy change resulted. As Robinson explains of the fallout, the arrests did nothing to address African Americans concerns regarding the entangled histories of race, poverty and segregation. It did, however, further the over policing of black neighborhoods and deepened systemic inequities and implicit biases within the local white community to Robinson the tensions and protests of this month are in many ways an outgrowth of the constant neglect of that history of discrimination..

Man Killed During Traffic Stop in Grand Rapids, MI

"Right now, is a real mess. And it centers around the police shooting of a 26 year old named Patrick la loya. Here's a report on what's happening in Grand Rapids, Michigan, from WDIV, local four in Michigan. Another African American man has died as a result of the use of lethal force with the interaction of law enforcement. 9 days after Patrick Leo was shot and killed during a traffic stop, Grand Rapids police releasing the video showing the deadly confrontation. 20 minutes of video, some of it too graphic to show. It's a protesters gathering outside the Grand Rapids police department tonight calling for the officer who shot and killed 26 year old Patrick Leigh oya to be charged in his death. The entire case is been turned over to Michigan state police. Our Martin McDonald is live downtown tonight Mara. Law enforcement veterans say the investigation is going to take a while. That's right, Kimberly and here's why, because there are multiple videos from multiple angles of what happened that morning. There are multiple witnesses and then you add on top of that, the confrontation between these two men before that fatal shot was fired. There's a lot to unpack here. It's just after 8 a.m. on April 4th when the 7 year veteran of the Grand Rapids police department to the GRP is not identifying, pulls Patrick Leo ya over for having the wrong plate on the vehicle. Stay in the car. Leo, a Congolese immigrant exits the car and doesn't follow the officer's orders to stay in the car. Liu ya tries to run, a chase and struggle go on for two minutes. There is no backup. Police say Liu ya has his hands on the officer's taser in the last frames of video you see the officer on top of Leo, he pulls his firearm and shoots Liu ya once in the back of the head, killing him. It's an absolute tragedy. It's

"A transparent investigation after video showed a Grand Rapids police officer shooting a driver in the back of the head The video shows this happened after the officer and driver struggled outside the car Last night people protested the death of Patrick Leah reporter Dustin dwyer a Michigan radio is in Grand Rapids and is covering this story It was Monday morning ten days ago 8 11 a.m. Grand Rapids Michigan police officer stops a driver in a residential neighborhood Police say the reason for the stop was that the license plate on that car didn't match the description of the vehicle And as that traffic stop that turned into a foot chase then a struggle and it ended with the police officer shooting and killing Patrick Lee oya And a lot of this is captured on video We're going to play a little bit of one of the videos that was released Wednesday by the Grand Rapids police department This begins as a traffic stop You see the officer polio over and Leo instead of staying in the car which is what they tell you to do steps out of the car and then there's a conversation on the street Let's listen Can I see your license The plate doesn't belong in this car Do you have a license or not You hear him saying what did I do wrong What happens next Well he sounds confused at first and then what Leo tries to do is he starts to kind of walk away from the officer and then that officer tries to grab him and then runs away the officer chases after him You see a struggle That struggle goes on for more than a minute toward the end of this body cam video You do see Leo reach for the officer's taser and grab it And that's just after that the police officer's body cam actually becomes deactivated in this struggle Well I guess we should be clear the officer still has his hand on the taser has the finger on the trigger but lya has grabbed the barrel of the taser at that last second Then that body cam goes away There are other angles however from other cameras including a cell phone video taken by a passenger in a car and that captures the actual shooting What does it show us Well it shows us the taser goes off twice And then you see that Leo in this officer or on the ground struggling the officer tells Leo to let go of the taser Leo at this point is face down the officer is on top of him kind of straddling him trying to push and keep him down And lastly you see the officer then reach for the gun at his hip and shoots at the back of Leo's head And that's the shot that kills him Just shocking moment How have people in Grand Rapids responded to this There's anger there's grief A lot of people had heard this video described in the past ten days there had been a number of demonstrations calling for these videos to be released It's been tense this whole time There were demonstrations last night Robert S womack is a county commissioner He's spoken to the Leo family who has called this an execution The Leo family they're Congolese refugees who came to this country fleeing violence Womack said he saw the video and he said it did extra context to the struggle that led to the shooting But at the same time whenever you put your knee on a person's back and you take out a gun and you put it to their head and our community they look at it as an execution But what Walmart wants now is he says he wants to see charges against this police officer And for now Michigan state police are still investigating and until that investigation is complete current rapid says it's not releasing the name of the officer Dustin thanks for the update Thank you That's Dustin dwyer of Michigan radio Rhode Island is the first excuse me Rhode Island is the first state to legalize supervised drug injection sites The two year pilot program calls for establishing safe places where people can consume heroin and other illicit drugs But even with a green light from state government Lin rity of the public's radio says it may be months before the first supervised injection site can open Representative Stephen Casey is an unlikely crusader for supervised injection sites a Democrat he's also a Catholic and self described conservative He's against abortion rights and he supports the Second Amendment right to own a gun So my first reaction was no way as a rescue guy like we can't give him a shoot up center Casey is also a firefighter and licensed emergency medical technician in mun socket Rhode Island Guy comes home from work and goes into the bathroom his wife doesn't even know he's doing it And he is in the bathroom EMTs try to revive people with naloxone a medication that reverses an opioid overdose but sometimes they don't get there in time Last year 430 people in Rhode Island died of drug overdoses the highest on record Studies of supervised injection sites in Canada and Australia show they reduced fatal overdoses and lowered the number of overdose related 9 on one emergency calls The sites also were associated with less use of drugs in public outdoor spaces and there was no apparent increase in crime Yeah we're going to let them come in and use their drugs because that's when they have overdoses And we want to be there to save them That's

Charlie and Jack Posobiec Discuss What It Means to Be a Good Man

"All right, this is a good question. Sherman from Grand Rapids, I commonly say, just as some background is in references in the question, be the same person in public that you are in private. Because stop pretending to be somebody that you're not. So if you are in private, a conservative, be a conservative in public. Charlie always say that you should be the same person in public that you are in private. I agree, but what does it look like to be a good person in private so that you carry over that good behavior publicly? I hear Jack talk about his years of sobriety. You talk about the need to explore big ideas and always be constantly learning. Can the two of you just expand on what it looks like to be a good person, specifically a good man in today's day and age Sherman from Grand Rapids? Kind of an open ended question, but I'd go back to I'd go back to the gospels where we're taught to be in the world but not of the world, right? So the idea that when people meet you, that you can talk, you know, I can make cultural references to Game of Thrones and Harry Potter and Star Wars and everything else. But when you meet them, when you meet someone, or I should say, when they meet you, rather, that they should come off with a sense of that person is grounded in something different. And something that's a little bit different than what's pumped onto TV every day. What is your sobriety meant for your life? Not drinking. So, yeah, for me, early on, and I wasn't someone, you know, I didn't do I never considered myself an alcoholic, but it got to a point where I said, you know what? I'm done with this. I'm totally done. Why? And why did you get to that point? You know, I've told some stories about this before, but I had a friend who, you know, I had a friend who got arrested over it and I saw the way that it basically ruined his life. And this was really on early 20s. And I saw how just so many doors were closed to him. We're completely closed by after what happened. And I said, you know, for my life, looking at it, it's not worth it.

Why The Housing Market Is Booming In A Bad Economy

"Glenn kelman has been the ceo of redfin for fifteen years and he says for all that time people looking for a home always put this one thing as their top priority rich poor urban rural people buying homes always had this one big question. What about the commute. The commute to work. Yes it's the old real estate mantra right of time immemorial location location location and most of the time. Those locations were big cities. Were most of the jobs were concentrated and as a result buying home in these cities had become kind of blood sport. The new york real estate market the san francisco real estate market. These were insane markets where there were bidding wars with twenty thirty forty buyers glimpses smaller cities rural areas. Were just a different world. In fact over the last few years housing sales had been a little sluggish and there was a bunch of speculation. About why millennials weren't buying houses. And what was going on. Yeah that has changed. The national association of realtors announced that from may to june just as the covid nineteen crisis was bearing down on businesses and millions of people were losing their jobs pending home. Sales rose more than sixteen percent. That's the biggest monthly rise on record. That is crazy to me because you know like in every five americans is on unemployment like i. It's like blowing my mind that homeownership rates might also be going up or that there's kind of a real estate boom but it sounds like there is well. It's white collar professionals who are able to work from home in some ways. This is a sign that the economy is just officially split in two. You have people who are worried about unemployment benefits running out and at the same time you have other people who are able to work from home and thinking about the home all the time and that's where they want to spend their money. These are the people who are really benefiting now because even if the economy is going through a crisis for them it's not crisis just sale. Glenn says that for the people who were lucky enough to have kept their jobs. A huge number of them are working from home now. And that's changed everything the traffic to listings that are in towns with populations of less than fifty thousand people is up eighty seven percent in other words. It's no longer location location location. It's more like space space space. And glenn says he's also seeing a big migration of people out of big cities like new york l. a. chicago and san francisco to smaller cities. Like palm springs tucson austin grand rapids and nashville and tiny san francisco and new york apartments. That used to have forty people. In a bidding war people have been leaving those places in droves tanya zapata and her husband moved to san francisco about seven years ago at the time they got one of those overpriced apartments in san francisco but a couple of months ago tanya and her husband noticed that a lot of people were moving out of their high rise. I started seeing a lot of people moving out of the building and tiny and her husband started to think maybe they have the right idea and they started looking around on the internet and then one day my husband saw this house and not by which is in the middle of vineyard and and the house is so beautiful because you have been yards all around the house It has space with fruit trees and also Raised beds for for growing your own vegetables. So we were like this is amazing. Go to napa. The house was not cheap. In fact it was about twice the rent that they were paying in san francisco but it had more than three times. The amount of space also their parents could move in with them. They had this big yard and all this land for their daughter to run around. Glenn kelman ceo redfin. He says people are making tania's calculation every day now paying the same amount of money that they're paying city but getting way more space for example he is seeing a lot of requests for extra bedrooms for parents and grandparents and requests for extra rooms for offices and home gyms

Trump and Biden in final swing state blitz

"Of campaigning in states critical to the election outcome. Biden is holding onto his national polling leader, Lo Que swing states. They are tightening American's head to the polls. Those who haven't voted by post of course. Our senior international edited Jody Shiny. Schneider is with me on the line. Jodi. So the closing arguments from each candidate. It's about the efficacy, I would say in terms of declaring victory. Yeah, they're making their arguments. Certainly on some of the policy issues. They've been talking about Joe Biden, saying America can't afford another four years of President Trump's policies, particularly regarding the Corona virus, and combating it on President Trump doing the same, saying it Joe Biden administration would be devastating for the economy and the markets, but they're also both talking actually about voting and about what's happening with the vote. Joe Biden's campaign manager, argued that the former vice president says former vice president's success getting early votes and steady pulling lead means that any path for president Trump would mean he'd have to get victories in three states where both counting is expected to take days or longer, including in Pennsylvania. President Trump, for his part, is saying that the Democrats are tryingto already declare him a loser and that they don't want there to be an early victory for President Trump. So President Trump is making the case that he wants these things counted right away by this team was cautioning that states likely to be both quotes and decisive. Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin will likely take days to count. Okay. So any any great expectation for tomorrow morning sitting on this set with clear articulated that message, by the way, That's the vice president. Jody. We just got him up on the screen as we're talking to you. Hey, is in Grand Rapids in Michigan, speaking in the final sweep, So did Joe Biden. This early voting, Serge? Doesn't give him the inside track because it just depends Which poll? I look out if we look a Quinnipiac University, Jody Biden days ahead by five points in Florida. Full points in Ohio. He's 11 points ahead nationally. Is this driven by the early voting, Jody? Well, the former vice president has been ahead in the polls for months. Early voting seems to indicate that certainly that the analysis with early voting is that it does favor the Democrats that this is a big push for the Democrats. This push to make sure to vote by mail well About early so that you would make sure that be voting given the Corona virus and fears about crowding at polling places. It does appear to favor the Democrats. Now in terms of the past, though, the the former vice president really needs to win some of those key swing states that Hillary Clinton did not seek out the victory in 2016. Michigan, where she lost by about 10,000 votes is going to be very critical. Pennsylvania, where she also lost by by about 40,000 votes is huge. For Joe Biden in Florida, of course, is always in that mix. So he has to get some of these keys swing states, and that's why you've been seeing him there as much as he's been. President Donald Trump needs to also win a swing states and he needs to hang on to North Carolina and Arizona, which some say are going to maybe into the blue camp.

6 alleged militia members arraigned on terrorism charges

"Learning more about arrested yesterday when the FBI revealed, what they say was a plot to kidnap Michigan Governor, rhetoric Whitmer the state file terrorism charges against members of a local right wing. Croup. Local television station, W., X. M I in West Michigan reports back in May one of the men charged the state's attorney general appeared on stage at an anti whitmer protesting grand rapids with the sheriff of nearby Berry. Cownie was a guest speaker reporter at that Station interviewed the sheriff who I said he wasn't very familiar with the case, but then seemed to take a pretty striking position for a law enforcement officer. Being on stage of the guy who's now being charged in a plot to kidnap the. It's just a charge and they say a plot to kidnap and you gotta remember that are they trying to kidnap because a lot of people are angry with the governor and? They, want her arrested. So are they trying to arrest or was it a kidnapping attempt because you can still Michigan if it's a felony, you can make a felony arrest and I think it's MC l. seven, six, four, point four or something like that point five somewhere on there. And it doesn't say if you're elected office that you're exempt from that arrest. So. I have to look at it from that angle and I'm hoping that's more what it is. In fact, the these guys are innocent till proven guilty. So I'm not even sure if they had any part in it. Okay. The men arrested that he was one of whom he was in a picture with at a rally appear to have been embedded in a larger movement both online and in real life of extremists that have been targeting the governor Michigan. NBC. News reporter Ben Collins has a piece today that explores all of those connections and he joins me now ben I I just want to get your. Reaction I mean that you know the sheriff saying look maybe they were just trying to make a citizen's arrest and actually that's fine because I've looked at the state law and the State Law says you can. It doesn't matter if you're elected official was a little striking but made me think that maybe this was something that had been in the discourse among the kinds of people who've been protesting the governor. This people 'cause play as going to kidnap people all the time. It's hard to know when exactly they're serious they talk about this frequently in fact, in these texts, they didn't just have a vague plan to arrest arrested personally citizen's arrests are, which is also home. Alicia thing in driver Wisconsin where they thought you would have a trial and another guy said, hey, why don't we just go to our front door shooter? That's the sort of rhetoric that they were talking with. This was that guy is not correct is not a living in reality with the rest of us because you know he he has a compatriot, they're basically in these militia movements are trying to not just organized with each other but organized with local police to create a a a movement with within themselves. They do this on social media do this real life at these rallies it's very dangerous and something that we're seeing constantly authored the essays. Yeah, there's been. There's been real alarm bells rung about sort of the the law enforcement and extremists. Intermingling or extremists inside law enforcement the at a piece about the oath keepers which is. One of those groups, what are you? What have we learned about these these individuals who are who've been accused and charged in this particular case and what they're kind of worldview was. Sure. So there from a hodgepodge of various different militias, conspiracy movements that happened on the Internet now. There's an umbrella term for this called the Bugaku. Now out, the Google comes from a fortune meam or ten is an extremist website in the boo blue comes from the term civil war to electric Google sounds like a joke sounds very funny or whatever. It's not. This is a very serious thing. militia movements have used this to recruit in these extreme spaces and on facebook as well and they take people who are just like gun communities or a libertarian communities in try to gain the algorithm to get people into these spaces. So a couple of these people were seen wearing Hawaiian church. Google blue outfit. If you will two of them were actually at this liberate Michigan protests that happened a few months ago. The president tweeted liberate Michigan. Then there were these people on the you at the capital. Two of those people were at that exact. So. This is a real life movement. It's an online movement in certain converging right now. Look Chris. I think, let's say the quiet part of your worries. This is not going to go away in in November and December it's going to get more and more dangerous in the more people you talk to who are extremism researchers realized that it's at fever pitch right now people are ramping up very excess. So we're all very scary. Frankly we're we're in this purgatory were about to see things really hoping we're we're not about see things happening, but they keep talking about it in these in these faces thankfully now, they're going to be some arrests.

"We live in Grand Rapids, Michigan area. But I'm impressed when a business goes out of their way to honor veterans talk to us about that event. You guys were planning which It's not just a one off. This is AH, honoring our veterans has been a or founding principle of our company. My father, David Monitor served in the army. My brother Ben is an Army Ranger as well served in 10th Mountain. And so this is something we've done year after year after year In every single one of our locations. We have three stores in Ohio. And every year we have done that one of the things that we do, and whenever a veteran joins us in one of our stores, we bang a big gong in every single associate in the company stops whatever they are doing, and they have come to that veteran and they thinking for their service. We give them a challenge Coin. Take a picture. We post them on the wall of honor, and then we we give them an invitation to that celebration that we hold every year around Veterans Day this year, obviously, with Kobe 19. It's been a bit of a challenge. We're trying to figure out how to do that. Do it safely. So the part of the white caps here in Grand Rapids and minor league baseball team they've come to table with a tremendous amount of assistance. We're actually going to use 5th 3rd ballpark. We figured if we can't get socially distance there, we've got bigger problems. So we're gonna be out of the White Caps Stadium 5th 3rd Stadium October 11th where you were sending invitations to every single veteran that has been in our store since our two years of operation here. We're going to invite them out. We're gonna have a keynote speaker. We're goingto have events for Children. Goingto have all the Veterans Service is reaching out to every single volunteer group, The veteran's home, Everybody that is tied in any way, shape or form with our veterans community. We're gonna reach out to them, ask them to be present so that veterans have a one stop shop where they can reach out and get registered for various services and programs that support them. And last year we gave out almost $50,000 in furniture to our veterans. That's just something that when I first started talking to my brothers about coming on board, it was just truly one of things that tipped the scales for me that that type of commitment to giving back to those men and women that have served our country with something just so proud of my brothers and my father for having done throughout the company's existence. And I want to be a part of that. That's awesome. For those of you who live or have friends in or near Grand Rapids, Michigan.

"I'll get back to the phones now and grand rapids Michigan this is damn glad you waited Sir welcome to the E. I beat network thank you rush thanks for being thanks so much for being a one of the few sources of truth in media today thank you very much appreciate that just to explain why I went to high school in the eighties when in the navy for six years in college in the nineties what I'm gonna bring up today well I didn't see but my statement is the American educational community grade school through college is now and has been for some time a Petri dish for the radical left in their curriculum so my question is why do you think teachers so despite America and the way they reinforce topics that divide us like climate change racism and abortion and beat down and patriotism capitalism and religion well I don't believe that it starts with people who want to be a teacher is who then become what you just described I think the left reaches out to people through the normal course of the way left operates through media in school and I think they take they they reach a bunch of people who become activists of them decide to become teachers these are not people whose life long goal was to become a teacher then they become left wing radicals their left wing radicals and then they become teachers they become energized over left wing radical politics some of them choose journalism some of them chose middle schools and choose a higher education academe some chose to take it to various tech jobs are corporate communities the left is is mobilizing an army of activists then choose where they want to go it's not just education if they've been built into them and then they they they all in pretty much these serious powerful depots of pop culture they own the media the real question is it when you take it to like higher education American University system and the reason for this he is that it has long been determined by people they admire Karl Marx of others that this is a system where people do have to be propagandized people do have to be sold into this they have to be radicalized propagandized and and basically programs and so that happens in school and it was taught and it was said that the quickest way to radicalize the population of the get it to convert from freedom to a system without freedom is to take over the education system that's one of the ten planks the commies manifesto that used to be very on on cool to status people all come on Russia you can't say as a communist behind every rock what turns out there was and this is where they are and this is why and how they have been implementing their their philosophy of trying to persuade or propagandize our program people that that would be in the limited time I've had here the quickest answer I can give you courage.

"Grand Rapids, Minnesota, there was a, a restaurant under construction. They're being. Moved is being changed from baron to a restaurant at any rate during the transition, a deer decided to check out the work. They were doing and the deer walked inside of the restaurant, the Grand Rapids police department was called, and they, they came in to the officers to try to help remove the deer that wandered inside by the way. One employee was called a hero. He saved a hot pizza from falling on the floor was a hero. And they write the establishment, which is in a strip mall, was being converted into a tap room when the deer decided to check it out about ten thirty in the morning of Dame. Troy, Scott captured the whole thing on video. It shows the deer nervously running around the area. The animal can be heard knocking things over in the bathroom off camera, according to FOX nine the TV station there in gr. Grand Rapids, the other rather, the deer broke lass and mirrors in the bathroom before darting into the main room and leaping over supplies on the floor until it, eventually escaped out the front door. They crew is reportedly working on the building when the deer just Mosey right on in. They said they chuckled because the what I said, he shuttled because his partner was talking the deer, like a dog he was trying to get the leaf. Come up here. Let's, let's go outside. Now come on. Dear ain't gonna work the deer did not appear to be harmed. It was not reported how much if any damage had been done to the property. Let's broke up the bathroom pretty well. So there you go deer live Beth Ruth, Grand Rapids, Minnesota and aqap talking to like a dog trying to get it to cover out sip voice it. Dahlia. Dear sit sit. Lay down lay down. Let's get to your calls. Eight hundred eight five nine zero nine five seven and we're going to Auburn Hills in Vernon is that you? I guarantee you that as well. He would've you had that deer on the, the grill in no time at all. The reason I called is I heard you earlier talking about the tariffs in my thinking is the care of the environmentalists should love them. Because if they raise the price of twenty five percent. The what the problem we're having Mexico. They don't. They use the pesticides. They use illegal in this country. The storm water runoff goes right into the pesticide already to the drinking water. Our, our, our farmers can't compete with Mexico. But now with all the regulations that they have now if they raise a twenty five percent we would be able to get safer food. That's made right here in California. So the California avocados in this case would be would be cheaper. No. They could compete against Mexico because they can't use the same pesticides. Mexico uses right? They have to have retention areas for the storm water runoff. So it doesn't go right into the drinking water Mexico's his a tremendous advantage due to lack of regulation that what that farmers in California, suffering. So you'd think that the environmentalists would say gee whiz list by California avacado twenty five percent more knowing that we are not. They're not twice at the residents that live by is, is the lesson here, not necessarily an economic one, but a but a health issue that we should know and, and be aware of and take into account. I'm thinking that. Yeah. Definitely, frankly, I would say so because if they're doing that with Advocaat does, you know, they're doing it with other products to exactly the reason, I said, that's what the mainstream media, talks about his talk about cucumbers and everything out. But regardless, we are editor tremendous advantage with the regulations that we have over pesticides. And because we there's nothing wrong with being environmentally conscious. There's nothing wrong with that polluting it costs money. So why would you look down your nose if it the president when he's trying? He's he means. Well, he's, he's trying to do good. Well, that's that's very good point. But you know what the political atmosphere's like these days? And it, it hasn't changed since he ran for office, and since he won and. Listening to. People in Europe saying that he's a massage, but they all excuse Kennedy and Bill Clinton and John Conyers, but they just hold up the whole Trump speaking of fire on everything and it just so wrong. It's such a double standard hypocritical. I hear you. Thank you for the call appreciate it. We're going.

And then solo Tuesday was back on Wednesday. Danielle Thursday night. I said, I'm not watching the news. I'm not waiting any papers. I'm going to go to the beach.

And then last night there was Donald Trump in Michigan doing the same thing a week later pull circle big week for Donald Trump because Grand Rapids is that it wants grandma. Michigan's. Glenn robbins. Many years ago. I was doing the arena football league. I was the play by play slash analysts. My partner was a guy named Peter Schwartz. And if you're a sports fan in New York City, Peter not Paul nothing to your post giant up here. That's right. Peter does updates at bayonet CBS. He and I were the broadcast team for the arena football league Team, New York dragons, they played their home games. In fact, Joel that you're at Nassau Coliseum. Okay. So we had about seven home away games. They played in Las Vegas the played in Indiana. They played all over the country and at the same time, I was doing. I miss the midday show and the giants on WFAN chernoff didn't love the idea that I was leaving on the weekends to do these football games. He was always nervous. I never get back on Monday. So right. So there's a huge snowstorm about the hit Chicago. And we're going to play the Grand Rapids team that you know, it's a crappy football league. They've got a team in Grand Rapids. Michigan not Detroit. Not in Auburn grand. Rapids turnoff goes, you can't go. You're not going to get back is a huge snowstorm about the hitch ACOG Cherney stop. I'll be fine. I'll be back. Make a long story short. The game is Sunday afternoon by Sunday night every airport from New York to Sacramento was closed. So I'm stuck in Grand Rapids with Peter Schwartz and a bunch of guys and the game is over. We're like, okay. This is going to sound crazy guy working at the arena, we go. I know it's Sunday night. And it's snowing outside is there any chance there's a good restaurant and or bar in this town. And he's like, you know, what there is he goes in a bunch of northeasterners and New Yorkers frequent this bar as well as all the waiters and waitresses around town. But it's right there in town. He gave the address so he went to Ono's for dinner that Ono's what's the place where the baby back ribs. Chillier back outback we go to outback for for dinner, and then we head towards this bar like eleven o'clock PM eastern time Sunday night, Grand Rapids, Michigan, and I'm going. This is going to be. They'll be they'll be more liquor when this place than teeth. I'm always saying director Peter Schwartz. These are going to be the fattest ugliest toothless people on a Sunday night in Grand Rapids. And I gotta tell you. It could have been studio fifty four. Wow. Beautiful people. Great looking people gorgeous bar all would all pristine and the loud music and this place rocked. I think we've got back to the hotel five thirty five thirty in the morning Monday morale, and I got a call from a quarter to six how close are you to New York City? You didn't tell them that you couldn't get a flight out. Well, of course, I did. But I kept telling them don't worry. We'll get back. He's like how close are you to New York City? I'm like, well, I love the board about fifteen minutes ago. And I'm still in Grand Rapids. So I got back on Wednesday. And I got suspended. Well, what it was all worth it? Because I have this incredible memory of Grand Rapids, Michigan. So to see my president there last night talking to these fine people brought me back to this unbelievable bar in the middle of Grand Rapids. Michigan that rivaled any bar. I ever went to in New York City. Yes. I don't know. But we have this preconceived notion of other places right is New York. Well, listen, I've been to a place called Gilligan's in Clarksville, Tennessee. That's the biggest spot every person that lives in Tennessee and Clarksville goes there on the weekends. And that lives up to every X every. Yeah. No teeth side, stinky, all of it. Yeah. Bought in this in this Grand Rapids, Michigan bar. It was something you'd never believe. So Trump gets the win last. Now, listen, the Mets their season in Washington and Brodie van wagon comes in. He's a new GM of the Mets. And he's really ballsy right away. He makes his big trade with the Mariners. Now what folks don't understand is? The trade was for Edwin Diaz twenty four years old, and maybe the best closer when baseball truth is the Mariners made the Mets take Robbie Keno. So they can get at Wendy is they wanted to rid themselves eventually of his contract and his salary. They did pay some of it. But the Mets took no off of Seattle's hands knowing that at thirty six he's thought a couple of really good years left. So now, you've got a really good pensive second baseman the best closer in baseball. It all made sense. But of course, some of these bands are like, well, he was suspended for half the year last year. How's he gonna hit without the steroids? He's thirty six all this nonsense about Robbie. Well, if you're one of those critics it took exactly one one at bat for Robbie casino to shut you up..
