"One five FM seven twenty AM K, Don. Welcome back. The biggest day. Join us. Just talking about the small that story, and we will continue to monitor that. Here's a story that hasn't gotten a lot of press. Earlier in the day to day. News broke out that this US Coast Guard, Lieutenant a self-described white nationalist his name is Christopher Paul hasn't. He was arrested last week on weapons and drug charge. You hear about this? Apparently, he was planning a large scale terrorist attack. And he amassed a any normal amount of weapons and ammunition. And when I talk about gun dry say there should be a limit to the amount of weapons you can buy ammunition. I've been saying that for a long time for you gun lovers out there. I'm sure you disagree with me. I don't care how normal you are. I don't care how responsible you are. There should be a limit to how many guns and ammunition. You can buy as a citizen here period. I've always felt that way. But apparently he compiled this hit list. And shortly after internet searches he looked up internet searches for things like what if Trump illegally impeached? Best place in DC to see congress people civil war. If Trump impeached and social Democrats USA, this guy was clearly white nationalist, clearly, a Trump supporter and a large hit list of people that he wanted to kill including Chris Cuomo from CNN, and other dignitaries and Democrats. But I'm sure Fox News won't cover that story. A lot of people want to say, well CNN all they do is rag on Trump and MSNBC all they do is rag on Trump. What about Fox News covering the story? You're not going to hear about that. Will you you won't hear about this story. What you're going to hear about, you know, uncertain shows on Fox News is how these kids are suing. You're talking like a Billy Madison style list like Steve chemmy had on his wall. I mean, but the difference being this is a serious list. This guy was clearly I mean, it's not funny. This guy was gonna kill people sky was gonna literally try to assassinate me. But I don't think that's funny. If I'm on that list. I don't find it funny at all. I think it's pretty scary. If he asked me, but the store you will hear on Fox News all day is that these Covington kids, you know, are suing for two hundred and fifty million dollars to the local newspaper. That's right. Two hundred and fifty million dollars. Why? Because for a few days, people were attacking them in the media. What are the damages for a few days? Things were a little stressful for them. So that's worth two hundred and fifty million dollars. I know people in Vegas ATar friends of mine who are attorneys that tell me that they've had cases of people that were paralyzed in car accidents. They've only gotten five grant because the insurance wasn't good. But you're telling me these kids at this Catholic school deserve a two hundred and fifty million dollars settlement. Are you kidding me? What are the damages here? Now, you you wanna throw them a little bit of money. Maybe even spread six figures around. I don't have a problem with that. But two hundred and fifty million dollars. It is a joke, and our court system should not be made as a joke. That's right. Our president of the United States has done that his whole career is used our our courts as a joke to sue people. Is there anybody out there? Thanks kids deserve millions of dollars. Especially if a newspaper retracts what they did. I mean, it just it literally. It makes absolutely no sense to me two hundred and fifty million. And by the way, don't tell me that that kid with a stupid little smirk on his face was trying to de escalate the situation because he was not he was standing there with the stupid smirk. And I'm not saying it was all because clearly it wasn't. But what kind of society have we turned into? When God forbid. People in a newspaper outlet might get a story wrong. And for a few days things might be a little stressful for you. Because a lot of people are tacking you and going at you on social media. And then it's retracted and everybody understands why that's not really what happened and these kids didn't really start anything. And by the way, every news outlet did eventually report that two hundred and fifty million dollars. I'll take your calls on that one to five seven five three nine hundred seventy two two five seven five three nine six number to call. And also this this really struck a nerve with me, and I'm sure you'll agree with me on this JD. You heard about this ISIS woman, she's begging for her US return. And she says she's willing to pay her debts. She was a member of ISIS K. Let me repeat that she was a member of the worst terrorist organization on the planet. Isis she wanted Americans killed dead. She trained with ISIS. Death to America. And now she's saying how sorry she is. And now she's saying how badly she wants to get back into this country. This is where I agree with Donald Trump, wholeheartedly this woman cannot and should that ever be allowed back into the United States without question. Yes. Of course, she you don't know how many terrorist attacks she planned against the United States in that time. You don't know what she knows what she's trying to bring back. You makes zero sense for her to be in the United States ever again, considering the fact that she joined a terrorist organization from from across the world at one point on her Twitter account JD back in two thousand fifteen at least on one occasion. She said she tried to apparently tried to incite Americans to commit acts of violence on national holidays. Now, she's saying in an interview, quote, I would tell them, please. Forgive me them, meaning Americans, please forgive me for being so ignorance, and I was really young and ignorant, and I was nineteen when I decided to leave see to me being young and ignorant. It's not an excuse to same thing as the governor from Virginia who was in the KKK gar point. He was nineteen or twenty or twenty one. That's not an excuse. It's not an excuse. If if you're willing to do something that stupid, and that's that's just the way. It is you you have no business being anywhere near the. The United States or especially in your political office. And I understand that she was born in this country. But I guess what? The Trump administration is trying to debate or argue whatever they're trying to I don't care really what they come up with as long as she doesn't. She's not allowed back into this country. But they're saying, look, no, she's not a lot here. Just because you were born here doesn't mean you're automatically a citizen, especially by the way, when you are a terrorist when you're an ISIS terrorist. What kind of world are we living in? So now, the president saying, look, you know, if she if she does get into another country if she gets to France or any of these other countries, the President, Donald Trump, and I agree with them here. He's saying you need to prosecute this woman, you need to get her into the courts and put her behind bars, and I agree with them. The fact that this is even a discussion that anyone out there would actually think that this woman deserves to be back in the country is an outrage it is a complete and utter disgrace. I can't we're talking about ISIS. That's not a mistake. It's not a mistake. A mistake. Is maybe going a few miles over the speed limit. And getting a ticket. That's a mistake. That's what I call him a safe joining a murderous terrorist organization leaving the country to do so right that that's a that's a conscious decision. I'm a steak is locking your keys in your car. We all do that. That's a mistake. Oops, sorry. I made a mistake. Oh, jeez. I got I gotta get my car, towed or. Oh. Oh boy. I gotta get a locksmith. That's a mistake. I'm stake is hitting a guy on the on the road by Jim bejon did last night. That was yeah. We'll get to that. That was that was it that's a tough one. But like, you know, it's not a mistake when you decide to join an organization that cuts people's heads off that beheads people. That's not a mistake. Let me ask this to you. You guys out there listening? What would you say to this woman? What would you say to this woman who was a member of ISIS who wants to come back into this country? What would you be your what would be your message to her? If you had a chance to talk to her right now. What would you say to her up the phone lines at two five seven five three nine six on that one again that number to call? If you want to be a part of the program seven oh two to five seven five three nine six. Here's a situation. Right, absolutely, positively. I can't believe saying this is one hundred percent, I'm on board with Donald Trump the sang, this is an obvious thing. I can't imagine that another past president would have decided on this one any differently. I can't imagine I'll tell you can make the argument there were some suspicious things that happened after nine eleven that members of the bin Laden family were were flown out of this country that that that is suspicious right there. So I don't know what to make of that you really do to to prove religious into her loyalty to her tornado. There's nothing nothing. She can do could she tell the CIA or the FBI exactly where the ISIS groups are wherever she was at could. She do that. Well, that's an interesting point you make there. I didn't really does have information that. I would assume that our community would want. I didn't really think about that that you know. I haven't heard anyone bring that up. That's interesting. Could she have some information that could help our intelligence, I would say possibly. But even then, I don't know. What would you say to this woman? Phone lines are open to five seven five three hundred six seven two to five seven five three nine six zero to Robert Robert thanks for calling in. How are you? What's up Robert doing? Why are you guys? Do get what's on your mind. The one question. I would ask her is are you Jesse smaller smothers? That's funny. Thank you. Online. I luckily, I I don't think small that's ever been a member of ISIS. Thank goodness. But that is kind of funny. Luck. When it comes to smell out, these these are two completely different. I know he was making a joke, and that was kind of funny, but these are two completely different scenarios. Even though you could say that small the terrorism aspect but the fake powder. I think that was aspirin. Yeah. You could make that correlation looks small at he didn't try to kill anybody. What he did was absolutely awful. Terrible. There's no doubt about that. And smaller deserves some jail time. But we're talking about a woman that was in ISIS. We're talking about death to Americans. It's right death. Do Americans to five seven five three nine six the number to call again to five seven five three nine six is go to Lou Lou thanks for calling in. How are you? I'm good. What's on your mind? I wanted to talk about earlier you about the two hundred and fifty million dollars. See? Yes. Yes. I wouldn't get too worked out about it. So you don't ever get what you soon for right? If you get a tenth of what you soon for and even I I don't disagree with you. But still I I am fended white, right? That's right. To make a point that you can't go out there and tell story. Not true. And you have a verify. Walk away..
