"Now. I'm an addict all right. Well let's bring this home with some quick political notes. Couple of developments in the republicans circus. That is the campaign for governor. James craig the anointed choice of the gop established ring still is exploring and saying nothing but he's joined in the fray by name. That is familiar. John angler turns out that john angler helped start craig's political action committee. James craig for governor. I know win. We saw that report While we we responded with a tweet of a guy throwing up This is what a terrible alliance john. Engler james craig. John angler carries a lot of baggage with them especially after his stint as the acting. President of michigan state university plus. He's no longer a resident of michigan. He does have a home here of outside of lansing but he doesn't really live their lives in texas. Liz uri well in texas. He became a multimillionaire after leaving. The governor's office by working for business organizations but he's coming back to michigan apparently to raise money which he is capable of doing for james craig. It's a big plus for the craig campaign if they're actually ever is a james craig campaign and based on what burning it to see in the interview. It's still questionable whether it gets into the race. Nobody knows who he is and it is possible that the combination of the democratic party and gretchen whitmer can carpet bomb him early on and make him unacceptable candidate and if they aren't successful the other nine people. That are running for governor. Say they're running for. Governor could have an impact one of them by the way is brand new in the race. This guy is kind of interesting even though you've never heard of him his name is michael brown. He is a captain in the michigan state. Police and we don't know yet if he's a part of the maga fringe or not because he really hasn't said anything to give us a clue there but he gives craig a rival in the law enforcement nisha which is very challenging for the republicans as this field expanse. We now have ten people who said they are running or exploring running for governor on the republican side and quite honestly you haven't heard of any of them except possibly james craig until now another semi big name has dropped out of twenty twenty two sweepstakes former. Us attorney. michael. Schneider says he will not run for attorney. General apparently content to bring in the big bucks at the ultra prestigious. Hanane law firm. This could have been a good candidate. Absolutely a michael schneider. He had the credentials as a former. Us attorney that's always looks good on the resume although i will point out that the last time a former. Us attorney ran for attorney. General frank. Kelly wiped them out at the polls but they they want to go after dana nessel they see her as a real partisan threat. Nestle for her part. I think i haven't seen any polling on but my gut tells me that she has progressed. Greatly from the forty nine percent got her elected as attorney general. She's been very active on the consumer front and very visible time after time after time and she's done it with just an absolutely great sense of humor..

"I think that that's an area where She should be much more aggressive. She very likely is going to be presented with the bill by the legislature which would prohibit employers from instituting vaccine mandates requiring that their employees you. There'd be vaccinated or tested on a weekly basis based on your polling. What's her best political stance on this bill. Sign it leave it alone or veto i would say if it is to prevent employers from requiring vaccination. I think that she should veto at say that should be left the employers that they should not be prohibited employers knowing narrow work. Say and what they're dealing with in terms their employers. They should be allowed to make that decision. Basically that's that's the position of the chamber of commerce to which is politically convenient for. Yes yes and other business. Groups are supported as well. And so i. That's what i would do. Beach lay it on the employers saying they have a right to require vaccinations and we all he do. Curved explanations and on one bright side sixty nine percent say they have been vaccinated another four or five percents say that they will be vaccinated only eighteen percent of this juncture say they will not be dated however there is a big partisan divide only fifty four percent say that they have been vaccinated while ninety percent plus of democrats they may have been vaccinated and sixty percent plus of independent voters said. They study the differences that they oppose mandated backseat even among those that have been vaccinated so i would put it off on the employers. Say they need to and want to. They can do that and other employers such as school district for their teachers. They want to require vaccinations. Because of the numbers For kobe within within the area they should be allowed to do so as well but at the same time push from asking. Let's move over to the pure politics of your polling birdie. You also did some testing of the governor against james craig. The leading at least we believe the leading republican contender at this point might theory has always been. You can run a train chimpanzee under the republican and democratic tickets and they would each get forty five percent of the vote and it's that other ten fifteen percent that make the difference. What are you seeing. Well eighty nine percent of democrats. Have supporting what we're against. The craig eighty seven. Percent of republicans are supporting craig against whitmer.

"Your local television provider until tell them to drop fox news. It's not about politics. It's about life and death. That spot is so unsettled. That even cnn refused to run it. Which i found intriguing but it has gone viral on the internet instead so So bit let us move on to other things. That are equally entertaining Yes the oriel campaign that's taking shape. Gop's chosen one former detroit. Police chief james craig got in then backed off and beginning with this declaration on of course fox news. I'm running. Because when i look at with some politician doing across our country you know. Talk about governor whitmore. She follows different rules. She just does. I'm sure governor. Whitmore is shaking her boots right. Now i don't know who the hell governor whitmore is but then i never knew who bill schutte with thought. He was running against either nor name. You oh okay so a day later campaign back soft saying he was launching an exploratory committee which is actually not a thing in michigan. But you know people do call it that he also the next day I think it was. He was on the radio and said he neither confirmed nor denied whether he was running..

"Which involved tax related crimes used in apartment. Because you need an apartment because you have to travel too far where your houses didn't pay tax one point seven million dollars over sixteen years not much or education for your grandchildren paid for his grandkids. Private school in new york city. My dad did that. He's a good guy or these are employment. Perks these are these are i. Don't even know. Do you have to but does anybody know the answer to that stuff. I know how the tax code works better than anyone. They indict people for them. Then you've got this lawsuit. That trump is using a claims. He's he has filed it actually in florida. He's going after facebook. Google and twitter and basically claiming that are ineffective government and therefore denying him his free speech rights is unconstitutional is laughable. How bad it is but what it really is as a fundraising effort. I've seen speculation in some of the national media that part of trump's problem is right now broke and he desperately needs to raise money to continue his his lifestyle and his businesses are all failing he is the master of filling business about the only one. That's making any money as mar-a-lago and you'd be having trouble there as well because sure people are interested in joining mar-a-lago now the just the former president of the united states and could no longer do them multimillion dollar favors. The lawsuits themselves are not the they've got absolutely thrown out of court. Identify even ever hearing on it. You know trump has so many silly people who adore him that he could just ask them for money and not do these embarrassing things but the speaking of embarrassing have you seen that seven point plan to resort to restore donald trump in days not years. No i've missed. That were seen. This was handed out at cpac The first step reveal achilles heel back. The curtain on the horror show. That is today's democrat party. That was a quotes by the way. Watch pelosi melt like the wicked witch of the west see the black caucus other key groups flip unexpectedly and watch the tables turn. That's the first step is the achilles heel. Sounds good to me. And he goes on. It will be in the notes but at the end the seventh step is impeach charge and remove biden and harris rendering all acts of set impostors while in office null and void and of no effect exclamation mark. Then duly elected i'll j trump resumes his rightful place as us president. Yeah i'll have it in the show notes because it is a joy good lord the insanity just goes on and on and on and on it's crazy speaking of insanity remember kayleigh mcenany. Who was the last white house press secretary and promised promised on day one she would never lie and then immediately started lying of course But last week on fox news. She was where she is now. A commentator of course. She claimed that quote all of our main founding fathers were against slavery recognize the evils of it. Why well it's easy to think that if you've never heard read a book or spoken to whoever books this is why it's so important to them to make sure that things like well. I don't even know critical race theory but things like black history aren't taught it's it's the whitewashing of history. If the founding fathers were opposed to slavery they would have made you know they would have done something about that. The majority of signers of the declaration of independence owned slaves forty one out of fifty six according to one study and george washington of course had hundreds of men women and children. Enslaved thomas jefferson had more than six hundred including sally hemmings who he forced or coerced or otherwise adding sexual relations with as baby mama. James madison. Who was our fourth president. He enslaved over one hundred people. James monroe our fifth president had as many as two hundred fifty and the list goes on so to say what kayleigh said shows that she's either lying or is incredibly ignorant or stupid or all of the above the above one. Other thing i was going to bring up is all this. Baloney about voter fraud did a little research on the old internet and came up with a really great website. The voter fraud map was put together by a conservative group. The heritage foundation and it lists all the cases of election fraud. It's database and what it shows us. We have firstly election fraud and it also shows a great disparity often by basis of race. And or where you live in the kinds of penalties you face for voter impersonation or voting illegally. You have a case right now in texas where a man who had been on probation for literally years thought that his parole was over and he could go and vote. He waited in line six hours to vote. He was the last person at his precinct who did vote and he waited all that time to do it and now just texas as passing all of their draconian voter suppression bills. He was arrested and put into jail with one. Hundred thousand dollars bail because he had the temerity to vote in the twenty eighteen democratic primary meanwhile people in michigan pennsylvania and elsewhere. These are all individual cases. Most of them involving people actually voted for trump. Who did it on purpose. They voted for somebody else and signed somebody else's name whether it was a family member or a total stranger and they either typically got a little bit of jail time in the most agree cases or more typically. They got a fine and or probation at the worst. So it is. It's really ham fisted and the ideas intimidation that. If you think you may have made a mistake if you're a former felon for example but you have the right to vote now. But you're not sure and maybe you're not the most educated person in the world. You don't know where to check so you decide. Well i'm not gonna vote. Because i don't want to take the chance of going back to jail. That's the kind of thing you don't. You're not talking about massive voter intimidation. It only takes in some elections of swing of two three four percent to change the outcome. It certainly would have changed the outcome and our presidential election in twenty twenty. That is the goal of all voter suppression is to have these marginal ghee creases and turn out the so called wrong. People people who are going to vote against your candidate's texas is especially agreements because they see the onslaught of people coming in who are new voters and the texas republicans. Fear that all those new voters are going to vote for democrats. Can't imagine why they would do that. Which which interesting in texas too is. There's been a bit of a swing. Latino voters torch republicans so some of these voter suppression bills actually hurt them in the short term. I know my friend jeff. Timur the former executive director of the michigan republican party thinks it's very shortsighted of republicans to engage in this voter suppression. Because ultimately they could be the victims of it. You know it's interesting. This heritage foundation voter fraud. Database doesn't include. Certain things like. I just looked up. Thad mccotter fraud convictions. Now thad wasn't convicted. But if you remember. Thad mccotter was a congressman who staff was caught forging his signature so that he could be on the ballot. And he's you know he's an incumbent. It was so stupid but anyway to people to people on his staff were convicted. That's not in this database when you look at a database like this and then you click down for the for the details and stuff. You have to remember that. It's not a complete database. I'm wondering if that's a politically motivated thing by the heritage foundation. The heritage foundation do something. That's politically skewed. Of course not. It's insane right. Something keep in mind as you look through this. I mean thad mccotter was the big one. He had to resign and he was an established dude. I'm shocked there's gambling going on here. Just shocked michigan congressman. Andy levin says the trump election delusions are posing a major threat to our democratic system. It's evolving into a government. Where only one political party is actually dealing with.

"Including among republicans The poll that were that. I'm looking at here. Broke down the bill into four sections repairs to existing energy infrastructure internet access rural communities public transit expansion clean energy technologies and just look eighty percent support repairs to existing energy infrastructure. Seventy eight percent. Rural communities seventy percent public transit as seventy percent clean energy. That's huge. These are huge numbers. And there's the the people who are opposing this plan. You know i accept. There are people who might oppose it like support the the fundamental philosophy behind it but oppose it for whatever reason but overall this is strong caucus opposition to this bill in terms of the republicans in dc. They're so out touch with what these numbers are showing us. The other thing that the polling shows in section that's included in the story of from crooked media but they talked about this on their podcast. Is they pulled people on the various priorities. One of the highest priorities they felt was increasing taxes on corporations and the super wealthy to pay for these things that's incredibly popular across the across the board republicans independents and democrats all support that and again. You've got virtually one hundred percent republican opposition for anything. That's going to make it harder. For jeff bezos and richard branson to go into space on their joyrides. The the god forbid you should you should tax them. You should tax amazon at all. And they don't even want the irs to have enforcement ability to enforce the current tax laws because that enforcement would be directed against the very wealthiest who have been. Shall we say skimping on their taxes for a long long time and taking advantage of loopholes because they simply don't have the resources to get an audit on effect the irs. Does he didn't have the resources right now. To get refunds out. I know in my case. I filed my tax return which is very simple tax return in late march. I still haven't gotten my refund and here. We are in the middle of july which which is absolutely crazy so those are still some of the things that The folks in washington need to get a clue on the republicans to a person don't wanna raise corporate taxes and i will give him credit joe mansion for all his conservative. Leanings is more than willing to raise both the capital gains tax and the corporate income tax. He just doesn't want to raise them as much as biden initially proposed but that's an area for compromise not for total for given if you combine that with increasing the enforcement on tax cheats. And the the the people who are really Shall we say on the line when it comes to tax deductions at the corporate level. There's big money to be had there. The irs has tax avoidance like this. That's illegal could amount to as much as a trillion dollars a year so and even if it's only half of that that's a heck of a lot of money to say the least seriously at some point enough is enough you know and these discussions are always framed as democrats hate the rich. You know. democrats think people are to just not that at all. It's not that lawless. Just that people who are more liberal and progressive not even just you know democratic party aside but they just look at how the world works and they know it works better win. We all pitch in and contribute to the comments to the public and they want to. They want to preserve the ability of the very rich to give richard branson quarter of a million dollars to go up fifteen minutes. On what amounts to a very expensive roller coaster ride into space. And you give jeff jesus untold millions of dollars to actually go into outer space and I enjoy that sub orbital riders. Well so I'm sorry folks are priorities. I'd rather be able to drive from here to indianapolis on an ice sixty nine. That didn't have potholes didn't have Rattling concrete all the way then for a few very wealthy people to be able to take a joy ride into space. Sorry if i want. I want a train that goes through durant or my area or something but takes me to detroit takes to traverse city to sault sainte marie all round the state you know that would be. There are some amazing tourist spots as we all know because so much of our income our our state you know revenue us. You know some high speed rail to take us here and there. I'd love to go to detroit for day to go shopping. I am not driving to detroit. I am old enough now where i can say no. I don't have to do that. So i i think that would be. I think that would be tons of fun. I don't know that anybody's even propose that. But that's something that i always saw. That would be so great. I'd love to get on a train drive over to drain happen a train. Go to detroit. It would help the ran. It would help detroit. It would help i. That's actually a part. I don't know supposedly roots are in the plan. But that's a part of the plan that the president is sent to congress and infrastructure as we all know. Joe biden is the railroad guy. He is the The doctor sheldon cooper of politics when it comes to railroads and he he definitely wants to increase the the rail services and the fact that you already have a spur going through where you live. I've got one going through where i live. I m s houston's love the amtrak by the way going east lansing to chicago. They use it all the time and if there was more of that. I'm sure you would find a lot of people using it. Showing move onto the delusional world of donald trump. Always a lot of fun to to see what's going on in that warped mind. First of all he came out with another diatribe against republicans. The michigan state senate over the weekend. I possibly timed because on monday as we're recording on sundays tomorrow there's going to be a court hearing in federal court in detroit on whether four of the lawyers who went to court with these ridiculous and totally baseless charges of election. Fraud are being held up for possible sanctions. The state wants to have attorney costs for the state paid by them. Others are asking that these people have their licenses suspended. And i wish them the very worst of luck in their federal court hearing federal courts. Do not like bullshit lawsuits that are filed just for the purposes of pressure leases especially one that was filed by a lawyer who later admitted defensive. Waibel suit against her that everything she said was bologna and no rational person would believe anything she said. That is the craziest defense. I've ever heard other donald trump's defense against these tax fraud charges. You used to claim that he knew everything about taxes. And now it's the sergeant schultz defense know nothing and our good friends at the midas touch. Pack have pointed this out in their latest video. Which the audio really tells it all. Because it's all in the words of donald donald junior and at the end you will hear the news reports on what's being charged. As opposed to. What trump's i know how the tax code works better than anyone. Nobody knows the tax code better than i do. Okay i know it better. I'm the king of the tax code. I know more formulas. I know more about tax abatements or about taxes than any human being that god create. I knew how to use the tax code to rebuild my company when others didn't have you worked very hard to pay the least amount of taxes. I wanna pay the least amount possible. I don't want to pay tax. He didn't pay any federal income tax. So that makes me. I understand the tax code better than anybody. That's ever run for president former president. Donald trump's company along with the organizations longtime chief financial officer have been indicted on charges.

"But i also know that in some places some of the covy relief has gone to actual physical equipment for the district to start bringing kids. Back in my. My district bought some buses because our bosses age doubt. And now we're going to be bringing kids back to school again and it was just necessary to do that so yeah i think you'll see a lasting impact but i think it's going to be several years out before we really start to say okay. It was that money that allowed us to do that. And that was the impact that it had. We could have a lot more good things happening for our infrastructure in michigan and across the nation. If the president's bill ever gets through the congress and it's interesting to know christine as we look at the polling on this bill the folks in washington really need to take a look at how their constituents feel about this because the support force overwhelming including among republicans The poll that were that.

"All he's pro-life pro gun pro. America anti immigration strong borders. I don't know what he said So he just hit the although republican pillars. He did not take any questions and he did not say he was running for governor. He said something that kind of bothered me. He said i was born. A democrat and everyone in detroit is born at democrat. And then i worked and with my experienced and through reading and understanding things. I became a republican. And you aren't born into a party you've fool but okay if you wanna talk in those kinds of in that kind of language that's fine but he's so pandering. I'm not even sure he knows what he's running on. His speech was in a teleprompter which leads me to believe that he didn't write it and he's being managed and told what he has to say at this point the fact that it wasn't just the senate majority leader there mike shirke but also the two chairs of the michigan republican party and a lot of other republican bigwigs. Are there clearly. He is the anointed candidate and democrats certainly can see that they have put out several press releases this week attacking him specifically on a variety of issues. But i think really kristie. We're going to see a repeat of what we saw with john james. In two consecutive campaigns the man is going to run on his resume of being a great guy on law enforcement and on being an african american in southeast michigan. And he's not gonna say damned thing of any facility about issues that are out there. He's gonna talk in broad generalities everything's going to be canned and virtually all of the interviews. He does are going to be with fox news because he knows he'll never get a hostile question or probing question from fox news. It's always going to be a bunch of softballs. This is the ultimate in a folk candidate. The guy is being put up there and is basically just The the front for a quiet campaign in the background of the republican party leadership. They just want a good face to put on their their losing policies. Yeah i agree. And frankly think james craig is weaker than john james because although james craig has the police chief and have a long history as a police officer i believe but even though he has that background john james was in the military he was a pilot and remind often right john. James had a great back. Any didn't have the kinds of skeletons that we're going to be able to dig up on james craig. I really thought john. James much more compelling candidate if you wanted to run again but can james craig gedser a primary. He has to go so far to the right for the primary to get through it unless the republicans do their typical thing where they i don't know what is it. Ron weisner. does he give people money to go away. So maybe ron weisner pay. All the other candidates james pragman have a real expensive primary ronald pickup. The bill rose could be able to do that. this time because a lot of those other candidates that are running are all cunanan jason. If not on. And they don't like ron weiser either. Because they think he's he's too moderate and he's a rhino and all that but the past habit of ron weiser to pay off people to get out of the race may come back to haunt him. We've got a criminal investigation now or at least a review of the deal between ron weiser and the candidate that he wanted out of the secretary of state's race back twenty eighteen. This is the result directly of a request from the former republican party chair. Laura cox which we've discussed before to have the democratic attorney general take a look into the republicans finances to see if in fact they did violate the law and there's criminal culpability in this case and there could be because there's there i'm not gonna speculate what's what she's gonna find and try in advance but just the idea that her legal bagels are are looking at it. It's going to be a problem and at the same time. Another republican request for the attorney general to investigate criminal activity by republican or republican adjacent people in the antrim county election fraud. Claims you've got at least a couple of people out there that are using this as a fundraising tool as they continued to scream about a voter fraud and antrim county was crooked and the machines were and all that when even the republicans in the legislature saying. That's not true. So you've got a criminal investigation into that as well by the attorney general but at the request of the republican so welcome to the circular firing squad. The republicans are doing a very good job of taking aim at themselves while the covid story is increasingly a story of two nations those who have been vaccinated and those who have not virtually all of the recent cova deaths. Nad nationally are people who did not get vaccinated. President biden is focused on saving lives wherever possible bringing the vaccine to those who have had challenges getting vaccinated as well as those who have been unwilling or unable to take the time to seek out a vaccination location now. We need to go to community by community neighborhood by neighborhood and often times door to door literally knocking on doors to get help to the remaining people protected from the virus as we shift from these centralised matt mass vaccination sites were doing thousands of people a day we're gonna put even more emphasis getting vaccinated in your community close to home conveniently at a location. You're already familiar with. It is fascinating to me that the republicans of immediately turned on the president and some of them even from the far right wing of the republican party are calling the brown shirts going door to door. And i they're gonna make you get a vaccine which is true and then they're going to take your guns and maybe they're going to take your bibles and this is just government. Government interference in your elisa. Taking away your choice. What happens if the pro-life party all of a sudden they're promoting policies that are gonna kill republicans because they're telling their republicans you don't need to get vaccinated is you're right not to get vaccinated which it is of course but it's also you're right to die which is not something that they're talking about but that's what's happening. The numbers bear this out overwhelmingly. The one that really caught my eye was in the last month. In the state of maryland every single death with somebody would not been vaccinated every one of them not of not most not many all of them. One hundred percent right and nationwide. It's like ninety nine percent so that the evidence is clear anybody thinks the vaccine is a risk. Not having the vaccine is a much bigger risk by a thousand times over. We have virtually no reports of deaths as a result of the vaccine. I think you could probably counted on one hand. The number verified reports of vaccine caused death. But we have literally thousands dying who have not been vaccinated. I don't think we're talking about those people who are higher risk from a vaccine. You know if you have a history that doesn't allow you to take vaccines. That's something i can understand and people who are not getting vaccinated just because they're anti vaccine because it's cool. You guys are a problem overall if you look at all of the states and all of the regions michigan is so so much better than we were. I give a lot of credit to governor whitmer and the health department for you know taking a stand on it and getting it done and.

"Mike shirke but also the two chairs of the michigan republican party and a lot of other republican bigwigs. Are there clearly. He is the anointed candidate and democrats certainly can see that they have put out several press releases this week attacking him specifically on a variety of issues. But i think really christine. We're going to see a repeat of what we saw with john james. In two consecutive campaigns the man is going to run on his resume of being a great guy on law enforcement and on being an african american in southeast michigan. And he's not gonna say damned thing of any specificity about issues that are out there. He's gonna talk in broad generalities everything's going to be canned and virtually all of the interviews. He does are going to be with fox news because he knows he'll never get a hostile question or probing question from fox news. It's always going to be a bunch of softballs. This is the ultimate in a folk candidate. The guy is being put up there and is basically just The the front for a quiet campaign in the background of the republican party leadership. They just want a good face to put on their they're losing policies. Yeah i agree. And frankly think james craig is weaker than john james because although james craig has the police chief and you know he does have a long history as a police officer i believe but even though he has that background john james was in the military. He was a pilot and she reminded often right john. James had a great back. Any didn't have the kinds of skeletons that we're going to be able to dig up on james craig. I really thought john. James much more compelling candidate if you wanted to run again but can james craig gedser a primary. He has to go so far to the right for the primary to get through it unless the republicans do their typical thing where they i don't know what is it. Ron weisner. does he give people money to go away. So maybe ron weisner pay all the other candidates james craig have a real expensive primary ronald pickup..

"It the secretary of state all at once. Plus the secretary of state this is. This is shorter. Predecessors as well made efforts to improve service by taking more of the services online and for those who have internet access which is the vast majority of the state you can do so many things. Renew your license tabs. Renew your driver's license. Things like that online and benson is completely expanded that opportunity the irony of that is by the way if the one thing the republicans are trying to take away with their voter suppression bills is your ability to register to vote online. They wanna make sure you have to do that in person or by mail because well. That's the way they that's the way. They flipped their both. They wanna fishing service. They just don't want efficient operations in elections for people who wanna vote That's not even the only controversy at the department of state we also have. The petitions filed by pharaonic will michigan. That group is working for a ballot proposal as you know to extend job and housing civil rights protections to lgbtq michiganders' of the bureau of elections has told the board of canvassers. The group came up short on signatures now. The effort needed three hundred and forty thousand and forty seven signatures. So just a little over three hundred forty thousand. They submitted almost four hundred. Sixty nine thousand But the way that the verification works is that the staff will take a small sample but five hundred signatures they test that for legitimacy and then they extrapolate from their american decision if they're within a certain margin of error. They might take another sample and do it again They found that the campaign came up. Forty one thousand one hundred and four signatures short of that minimum that they needed and they were not within the margin of error so a second sample was not take it so they made the recommendation to the board of canvassers to not certify that petition part of the controversy is over signatures that were collected electronically using docu sign and that is not defined in state law and it was going to be something that was probably gonna end up in the courts. Now it definitely will end up in the courts using electronic signatures. Which by the way are us all the time. I just bought a house using nothing but electronic signatures and i bought my insurance for through electronic signatures so it is something that has done all the time. Petitioners collected eighteen thousand six hundred eighty-three signatures online. But those were all in theory valid signatures under state law but the bureau of elections staff. Invalid all the signatures. Say they don't count now. If they had been included as a part of the sample for the the total check of petitions it would have raised. The percentage overall that were valid because every one of those docu signs seen is probably valid. The only thing that would invalidate them would be if the person was not a registered voter. And there's a pretty good chance that virtually all of them were so that would have raised the percentage in addition. There's a lot of dispute over some. That were invalidated in the sample because of jurisdiction errors signing errors made by every site or on the sheet. All signers entered the date of birth or other incorrect data And torn mutilated sheets There are a few that had signatures invalid. So this whole thing is going to go to court. It's going to take months if not years to turn around. They may decide to go with another petition. Drive now that we no longer have the covid restrictions and the challenges presented by covert because this was a ballot proposal where they were just getting a full head of steam and collecting signatures when the shutdown and all of a sudden they just had to pull everybody out of the field and figure out. What are we gonna do. They also went to court to get these signatures extended. This is going to be an ongoing controversy. Farren equa- michigan did request make a request. The secretary of state back in may that the administrative rules be promulgated. And what this is about. Is that according to these administrative procedures. The secretary of state shall promulgate rules. Establishing the standards for ballot question petition signatures. That was never done in. Some of the very specific things listed in there would apply directly to what the staff's report said a bit to invalidate these signatures. I don't know what that you know. How significant that is. If that's going to go anywhere. But i will include in the show notes because it's really interesting but it's also kind of a rabbit hole and i'm not a lawyer. Yeah let's let's see here. We've got another ruling from the supreme court. That's pretty easy to understand. The future. governors of michigan have a lot less power to deal with emergency situations such as the covid nineteen pandemic the next pandemic that comes along or the next major disaster like that that comes along and it will. The governor is going to have to look to the legislature for help which is something. Legislature isn't always willing to. The supreme court ordered the board of canvassers to certify the signatures unlike michigan which will take away. Most of the governor's emergency powers under the law. Those actually ruled unconstitutional by previous supreme court. The reason they want to go ahead with it is one so that they can pass a law. Repealing that law without the governor's veto because they can now bypass the governor says vote on it and put it into law. They also want to bypass the voters. Who thought they were signing a petition. So that they could vote on this issue but of course they'll never get the opportunity because the legislature will take that away from them it. It's incredibly short sighted. It's just it's petit is aimed specifically at whitmer but its impact generations to come because legislature simply aren't equipped institutionally to respond quickly to emergencies. It just doesn't work that way and it's up to executives the executive branch of government whether it's state or federal or local to respond to emergencies and the says no. You're not going to do it. They're also talking now about another petition. Drive which is going to be on agenda for the board of canvassers on tuesday to start a petition drive to take away the emergency powers from the department of public health. So that the next time there's to see whether it is polluted lakes or it is a a pandemic or anything in between the department of public. Health will have very limited opportunities to respond and again they're going to have to go to the legislature hat in hand to see if lawmakers are willing to go along with emergency restrictions to protect the public health. So stupid and you know again with term limits. We might have different different approaches to this people in the legislature. No that they're gonna be there for a long time. They're going to know going to have to deal with it again. They're not gonna kick the can down the road. This is kicking the can down the road so that our kids. Our grandkids future generations and problem. These people can't even get the budget on a deadline. They said they would get it done. They just walked away. So i don't see how they're going to deal with an emergency by consensus. I really don't when they can't even agree to fund the secretary of state's office on that last point about the budget. I saw an interview. That the senate majority leader your buddy. Mike shirke did over the weekend. On jackson public access television and his response on the budget. Not getting past was well. We all had plans and we knew what the schedule was. We made plans in. It's hard to undo our plans. Tell that to any other employer that you had plans when your employer says we've got to get your job done first and see how long you left in the job. Bad excuse shuki excuse goes against everything. They say they'll run it like a business. Run it like a business. You don't run it like a business you know. Business doesn't let you go on vacation when your job isn't done business doesn't it when they have a profit just give the back to people. It's just it's.

"Six states have sent people already. But Michigan is not one of them. Lisa McLean was the congresswoman We talked to earlier this morning. Who said Look, we should be. We should be helping out the call. The call has been made for help. We need to get down there. 1 808 5909571 808 590 wjr. Let's go to Detroit and David David, Welcome to the show. Hey, Thanks for having me. I I I agree with, um, the previous comments. We really do need to have the ability to send help when it's when it's asked for. I mean, if the situation was reversed, and we had a border issue Let's say what? You know the bridge and something was going on there. And the governor of Michigan called out for help. You know that governor would want help to come. And you know, so I think it's only right that, uh, you know, we defend our constitution, defend our borders and do all that we can if the federal government is going to fail. At its fiduciary responsibilities there. Um as far as far as chief Craig goes, I think it just depends on who he surrounds himself with what sort of policies that he brings to the table. He's certainly a man of integrity certainly has respect. But being a governor is quite different from being the chief of police. And so we'll just have to wait and see. Um what he brings to the table. And lastly, I'd like to say that you know, as as activists, we can walk and shoot them at the same time. I think it's important that we Get the election, right? Um if there's evidence if there's things that are being uncovered, and they are, we definitely need to focus on cleaning that up, because if we don't have people who have confidence in their elections Don't care about 2022 or 2024. We've got to get that right first, and we can do both. Yeah, You know, that's a good point. I, uh you know, people have talked a lot about whether there should be audits or God of the previous election. But But really everybody is universally interested in having fair elections that where you know your vote counted, and there's not extra votes, making their way into the into the couch. And so, you know, while they're doing that work in Arizona, and, uh if they if they find enough where it needs to happen, State by state, I think it's a good idea, and I think it's money well spent. But I just mean when we when we hear from politicians when they're when they're when they're focused in on what happened to Donald Trump, I'm not sure it inspires unity. Moving forward John Engler. We heard talking about those issues of, uh of, uh, you know, coming together, Looking forward the way he won three elections as governor was to say, What are we going to do? Next. So first he came in and had to say what he was going to do. That was different and better than Jim Blanchard was doing and he was voted in. But in those next two terms, he he didn't look back and say Just this is what I did over the past four years, he said. This is what I'm going to do. Moving forward people. If they're going to vote for you, they need to know what you're going to do. So I thought James Craig Did it did a nice job. He came out and said who he was and what he believes in and talked about a need for change from from the current administration. How much experience he has or what his plans are going to be. We'll have to see. Maybe that's why it's taking a little time before he announces. Maybe he wants to, um, you know, get beefed up on the issues. It's not easy to go from a police chief. To a governor as a police chief. He does have 3000 people that he's in charge of, but you know, as a governor, he would have 10 million people. He's in charge of so he doesn't need to be in a hurry. He's popular is well liked. The polls show he's doing just fine and and there's other candidates who will have to see you know who's going to be in and who's going to be out. But But I agree with you. And as for by the way on the and the troops you know of Michigan had if the floods have gotten more and more severe, and we needed help, for some reason, and we called on other states to send help..

Other officers are on the scene. Then fatally shot the twenty year old littleton. The whole thing escalated in less than five seconds at the time.
